Track Name: judgemental hoodoo
you see her standing there
your thinking that she don't care
you can't see through the wrong
to much in your mind going on

it's just judgemental hoodoo
knocked out for six
tell me what would you do

if she had her way would you lie still
or run to lift this void you must fill
you'll hear 'em say well he can't be satisfied
i too was young when i knelt down to cry

it's just judgemental hoodoo
knocked out for six
tell me what would you do

see i believed in the stories told
& i still do walking these corridors cold
break through for the sinners
yes we all fall short
hammer through the time piece
the ropes pulled taught

it's just judgemental hoodoo
knocked out for six
tell me what would you do

put the counter back to zero
& feel that burn
time is short we've gotta live
this lesson to be learnt
put the counter back to zero
& feel that burn
time is short we've gotta live
this lesson to be learnt

it's just judgemental hoodoo
knocked out for six
tell me what would you do

in the distance a faint scream is heard
through the frosted jigsaw mist
it sounds absurd
reminded years later of your plight
whitewashed remorse
in bitter hindsight

it's just judgemental hoodoo
knocked out for six
tell me what would you do
Track Name: new place
i was waiting for a sign
tired of waiting
in the same old line

well it's fine
these blues
choose to choose
im gonna sit back with some satisfaction

you see it's a good day's work
i won't be left in the lurch
thousands of years of history
very reason for a church

the light is just down this way
find a new place to play
find a new place to play

it's a white bus
that takes us to eden
it's a new season for believing
and retrieving

everything we once took for granted
i'm gonna grab those seeds i'm gonna plant it
don't knock it before you truly understand

the light is just down this way
find a new place to play
find a new place to play

somewhere where playing 'aint a sin
yeah it's a new place to begin
thousands of years history
it's a new place to begin
Track Name: reluctance
my realisation
despite my reluctance
it's insisted i care for you
my realisation
despite my reluctance
it's insisted i care for you

well the scene was set
pay off this debt
my confession
save's your obsession

it's the things that play
on a mans soul
are the same that dig the deepest hole

my realisation
despite my reluctance
it's insisted i care for you
my realisation
despite my reluctance
it's insisted i care for you

owe a debt for the peice & rest
went looking for the water fall
what can you say about this decay
when your tried for treason
with no good reason

my realisation
despite my reluctance
it's insisted i care for you
it's insisted i care for you

i did the favour
but her flavour is sweeter
admit the bullet
& walk a hundred miles

my realisation
despite my reluctance

it's insisted i care for you

it's your realisation
despite your reluctance
it's insisted you care for me
Track Name: not ok (piano version)
i lay her down when the wind chimes were swinging
i played the clown yeah her eyes were willing
i know the way i must keep moving
i know the way i must keep moving

it's not ok but life's just like that
it's not ok but i know i'll get right back on track
it's not ok but life's just like that
it's not ok but i know i'll get right back on track

burdened fields now in distance
bear new shields & i keep it consistent
it's calling me listen hard & i hear it
it's calling me so there's no time to fear it

it's not ok but life's just like that
it's not ok but i know i'll get right back on track
it's not ok but life's just like that
it's not ok but i know i'll get right back on track
Track Name: break through
you gotta break through
you gotta break through
turn their back on you
you gotta break through

what you gonna do now your all washed up
don't cry into your hands now your all washed up
you gotta stand tall you gotta stand up tough
you 'ain't the first to really mess up
so stand up tall and start again
you gotta look real close to find a real close friend
give it time believe your heart will kinda mend
i know it hurts but you had to defend so...

you gotta break through
you gotta break through
turn their back on you
they turn their back on you

you'll hear 'em laugh but your not stupid
it's just the pangs & the arrows of cupid
who cares what they say behind your back
you got the skills & you know you got the knack
so what you waiting for you gotta put pen to paper
don't sit around just waiting till later
you gotta act now make your move now
c'mon now kapow soldier time to attack now

you gotta break through
you gotta break through
turn their back on you
they turn their back on you

i was knocking on the door they let the right one in
& now i'm back to tell you how they just kick you in the shin
two timing i heard all the lying
ignoring all my sighing now your screaming & a crying
it hurts don't it down on your knees
i broke through the lock i've gotta set of keys
now i'm driving free in my speciality built truck
whats the point of sitting down on my luck

you gotta break through
you gotta break through
turn their back on you
they turn their back on you
