Track Name: Resistance
Yes I know I should not do this
I wonder why my heartʼs so foolish
Itʼs my weakness for temptation
Thatʼs led me to this situation

If thereʼs a reason for refusing
Itʼs just not one Iʼm good at choosing
I know suspicion around me is growing
Thereʼs only one way this is going to end

Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance
Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance
From you

Let me go, you know I need to
Yes I know you see through
My intention unfit to mention
Itʼs late, itʼs late, itʼs late
And I really should be on my way
To higher ground
Be safe and sound away, away, away, away

Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance
Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance

From you
From you, from you

I try to walk away, I walk away from you
I try to look away, I walk away from you
From you, from you, from you, from you

Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance
Ooh ooh
Get out my head
You know Iʼve no resistance

I’ve no resistance
I’ve no resistance from you
I’ve no resistance
From you, from you, from you, from you.
Track Name: National Valentine
A million miles away
The voices raise tonight
As soldiers sign their names
A National Valentine

See we’re gonna catch you
We know what’s on your mind
We’re gonna find you
Don’t try to run and hide

Ooh, where’s the sunshine
Ooh, let the sunshine through

It’s hard to disappear
And keep the world outside
Your isolation brings
New worries for your rights

I’d love to help you
Protect you from the storm
Although I don’t even know you
I’d like you to know the way it was before

Ooh, where’s the sunshine
Ooh, let the sunshine through
It’s all I could do

I don’t know, I don’t know any more

The troops are arriving
Lock up yourself and yours
The general’s retiring
He wants to get home
In time to watch the news
In time before this fight becomes a war

Let the sun shine through
Ooh, let the sun come shining through

Is there something so wrong with me
Is there something so wrong with me
Is there something so wrong.
Track Name: Hollywood
This life gets harder day by day
It seems like everyone wants more
I try to compensate in other ways
I try but I just can't take more

But the rent is due
I see tears in her eyes
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

These expectations crypt all nights
It tries to steal my joi de vivre
All this pressure building day and night
Sometimes I wish that I could leave

But the rent is due
I see tears in her eyes
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

And there's bills to pay
Come now baby, don't cry
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find

Tell me you understand
Tell me we'll be alright
Tell me we've got a plan
It's hard to keep going on
It's hard to keep being strong
When this is not the way it's meant to be
This is not where I had hoped to be

On my knees, I'm on my knees
On my knees, I'm on my knees

But the rent is due
(On my knees, I'm)
I see tears in her eyes
(On my knees, I'm)
It's not Hollywood
(On my knees, I'm)
Just the best we could find
(On my knees, I'm)
And No Second Take
(On my knees, I'm)
No way to rewind
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find
It's not Hollywood
Just the best we could find.
Track Name: Peace (EP Version)
Ah-ha-ah

I woke up today with the sun in the sky
The birds that I heard on the rooftops
The songs made me smile
I woke up today with the eyes of a child
See there I was thinking that we
Could agree to be friends for a while

Ah-ha-ah, everything will be alright
Ah-ha-ah, yeah everything will be alright

I woke up today to the sound of a drum
From my head to my toes I could feel it
Nowhere to run
I woke up and stared where the red flowers rise
And here I was thinking that we
Could agree to try peace for a while

Ah-ha-ah, everything will be alright
Ah-ha-ah, yeah everything will be alright
