Track Name: shelter
just walk away
blame it all on me
i'll hold my head up high
& try to just let it be

no shame shines
shines from you
so just walk away
& blame it all on me

if you've gotta drive
well thats just fine
'cause everyone needs to run for shelter
from time to time

gotta drive with the windows down
gotta go at speed
'cause your pulling me down
it's time i took the lead
so just walk away
fuck it
blame it all on me

if you've gotta drive
well thats just fine
'cause everyone needs to run for shelter
from time to time
Track Name: birds tweeting at me
action
the time is of now
mould defying
fuck it
turn it upside down
out with the old?
in with the new?
improve
that's all we can do

human kind
please be at rest in your mind

maybe everyman
reaches a point
of no return
"shall i throw it away?
or stay & learn?"

human kind
please be at rest in your mind

all it takes for evil to win
is for the good of this world
to sit and do nothing

we need to make our stand
so we can journey on to a better land
Track Name: sad2day?
Break the silence with a song
hold on
hold on
Track Name: one simple poem
sick of people bustling
to acquire bullshit they never wanted
treading on peoples toes
sometimes i wanted to scream
& burst their bubbles
exploding with a blast of the truth

hope
one simple poem

no matter how hard you scream
your the only one
with everything to lose
humiliate humanity
breathing blasphemy
trying to attach itself to me
trying to sacrifice me

hope
one simple poem
hope
the beauty of life is never knowing

scared
scarred
but sacred

hope
one simple poem
hope
the beauty of life is never knowing
Track Name: turn around
please hold the line
please leave a message
hey you mr fat cat man
your stability
is breaking vividly
see it in everything we see
you beam it all into me
& it's breaking all my positivity

fear mongers
big sacks of shit
filling our minds
with their weekly hot tips
beam it all into me
breaking all my positivity

is it any wonder
why everyone looks so down?
time to turn it all around

human spirit
being lost by technical advancement
wisdom too through
decline of diligence
& we are losing patience
fear mongers
selling all our souls
amen
"we should throw away the rulebook
& start again we'd be back on the mend again"

is it any wonder
why everyone looks so down?
time to turn it all around

tell us all the good things
tell us all the good news

lift our spirits
so we don't breed hate
do it now before it's too late

fuck money
it's all about our fate
lift our spirits
so we don't breed hate

please hold the line
please leave a message

Track Name: peace of mind
have to say you gave me no choice
i had to run away
i wish there was another way

now i'm left with a haunted vision
tattooed in the back of my mind
unresolved hunger for you
why were you so unkind

ah
need to find
ah
peace of mind
ah
need to find

ah
need to find
ah
peace of mind
ah
need to find

you can't get down
no one's to be blame
i know it's all a mystery
but somehow
we grow strong through pain

embrace the neglected burden
let the light shine in
help me pull back the curtain
let the light shine in
let the light shine in

ah
need to find
ah
peace of mind
ah
need to find
Track Name: wondering
i got annihilated last night
if anyone had pushed me
i'd have got into a fist fight
i drunk to forget you
& all the heartless things
you make me do

& i just keep wandering
just keep wondering

trapped between where we hear & what we speak
all these words
clamour & echo
the longer it grows
try to make your amends
but it's been so long
i just can't comprehend

stop to try & befriend a duck
for a while i think
i might of fucked up

but i'm nothing i'm just me
so it flew away & just let me be

so i just keep wandering
just keep wondering

had to stop
to try and retrace my steps
i didn't want to get caught in your nets
dipped my toes into frogspawn
flew the superman kite
if we are what we will
then she just might

& i just keep on wondering
just keep on wondering
