Hitchhiker 02:09
We have arrived! We've tried the hectic scramble now it's biting at our feet There was a time to justify but now we're Running out of words And those that will keep it, the few that will keep it the same And those that do speak it, they fear we will keep it same...THEY'RE WRONG! Cause I can see what's going on And you can see what's going on We all know what's going on So wrong!, so wrong?, SO WHAT! I don't have a right to say, maybe it's not my place What about their reputation, let's plea to saving face I heard that it was only once and they've learnt from this experience Stay seated through this turbulence YOU FUCKING COWARD! Cause now we see what's going on And you can see what's going on We've all known what's going on So wrong! But now we can't deny it's been there right before our fucking eyes And we're standing up for those in the rows behind So wrong to believe one above us all Surround yourself with the rest assured So wrong, so what So wrong.... So wrong, so what So wrong, so what So wrong, so what So wrong, So wrong, so what So wrong, so what So wrong, so wrong, so wrong, so wrong, so wrong

We Remain 01:31
The faith of some is held in ideal forms, while the murmurs rising from the gallery but…I…have…nev-er-shed a single thread, left opportunity resounding hollow in the void of constancy But now…it’s time for a change! And the pride of our elected point of view ,suspected left untested, gathers bodies, rank and file And needless to say we’re opposed, I’m needless, ashamed and exposed But now…it’s time for a change! It’s time I explain It’s time we settle all our differences with the strength we’d left remain We remain! We remain! Sincere to the unfolding course of exchange We remain! Urgent, determined against those who seek to restrain We remain! And where will you seat at the table? What do you hear, these friends of mine? We remain!

Lethe 01:58
Hey look, they’ve come to find a common ground Deflect the point across Til our gift to empathise remains discrete Have a seat, we may be here awhile, could you please vacate the aisle There’s dissension of the terms these are none of your concerns Of what it means to be free Hey look, they’ve come to lose themselves in suits custom to criticise So talk in circles surging hope a thousand leagues And rest our feet upon revisions to our wealth for toil Create a queue for the most basic human needs But don’t misread, we may be here awhile, and we’d prefer a single file At their expense let us rejoice Til all that’s left, left without a voice Left at sea hey hey Left at sea hey hey Left at sea hey hey hey ho

t's hard for you to commit to plans when you don't believe in time These impression that you leave when there's strangers at your feet And there's never ending talk of the value placed on change But deflection of the question when your staring face-to-face So who do we become when we have given up all semblance of youth It occurs to me, we never did fulfil that aching need It's reality dismissing that tired paradigm of an aging dude who hasn't found his feet So who do we become when we have given up the pretence of youth I'm a stranger to the scene that you've left in front of me Overwhelmed and overcome Numbed by a wall My senses can't handle at all Let's step outside to air The problems that brought you here Maybe see it for ourselves In the light of parallel If there was any other choice to make You know we'd still rebel Let's put it on the shelf Myself a former shell And then it's safe to realise IN ANOTHER FEW YEARS TIME! Overwhelmed NOT overcome!

Can I speak for change when there is little cause To investigate and analyse the opposing driving force Left little to creativity and nothing of the heart They live ages, oceans, personally apart This major change We can’t explain Can’t make up my mind so for today I’ll redirect and reinstate Procrastinate! Yeah! (Spoken over the top of each other) But I work so much better under pressure I just don’t care enough! I was never good at it anyway I gotta give it 100% or whats the point I just don’t have the time I don’t know what to do Back again My lonely friend Your indecision paralyses in the end So reinstate the debate Procrastinate ………………………………………………………………………………… So here I am to choose, to break down all the rules assemble my new plan, gotta get it done today What you got to lose? There ain’t no stopping these idea when I’ve sent it into play And I’m alive from the very first day Now I’m alive And I’m alive from the very first day Now I’m alive and I can learn that there ain’t no stopping…. TIME!

Only Once 02:07
This is the last place I expect to turn Herald an inner demon in hopes of lessons to be learnt In company of the pioneer no reputation left to burn “They all say it was only once” Now it's safe to say we never knew It's comfortable to reach back and pull through Yet I'd be lying, I'm still hoping that you are one of them too It's easy to escape the void when there's nothing left but holes In a life that once mattered we never meant to break the mould In a story full of promise like the one that you once told “They all say it was only once” There's promises you were never meant to hear “And we never have” “And we never have” Til we can't feel, can't speak, our senses obsolete “But we never had” “What we ever had” Now it's safe to say we never knew It's comfortable to reach back and pull through Yet I'd be lying, I'm still hoping that you are one of them too They're subdued by finding trust in the stores above The back and forth anonymity amplified to be enough Til we can't hear, nor speak convincingly what’s left to call the bluff “They all say it was only once”

Cancers 01:32
You filled me, so briefly, left seeking for, oh certainty, yet you hold it in demand I’m left here, and all ears are free to quote, assuredly bespoke dick left in my hand How many answers can be wrong? How many masters follow on? You filled me, so briefly, left seeking for, oh certainty, yet you hold it in demand I’m left here, and all ears are free to quote, assuredly bespoke dick left in my hand How many answers can be wrong? How many masters follow on? How many cancers have we found? How many, how many, how many answers can be wrong?

For a Song 01:31
Now the hunt is really on Stay the course, it can’t be long Take time to capitalise, quit while we’re young We’ll sell out our standards if answered all for a song Chains and balances, income slaves And everyday’s a new betrayal….Just want to Rack up the poverty lines and run them all out on rail Just give us the keys, we’re eager to please, you can’t go wrong We’ll sell out our standards if answered all for a song Weak at the knees, desperate for feed, yet we strive on Bystanders to all questions answered all for a song There’s no point from day-to-day Self respect drips from my brain And if I am asked are you OK I’ll bring new depths to life through pain But how I wished that you would stay Away, away, away

It only seems to boil the blood of people that we love And matters never settle when the push it comes to shove, and now It's time to get a grip On this chromo-clocking shit Not all the world's to blame For you’re pathetic attempt at change Overriding the words to speak It cripples you're autonomy And renounces all authority Just seething tirades to repeat, in love It's time to get a grip On this stare-down, macho shit It's better that you stayed Then the neandethal charade It takes patience to compete, and I’m better left alone In spite of all our actions, our better guidance shows (Whoas) I’m better left alone x 3 I’m better than I know

Who's got the gear, who's got the keys Be careful where you stand He'll collect your head while you’re necking the dregs When Tommy has a plan He never sleeps, brings extra sheets He'll pay with a helping hand He'll get you there with time to spare Cause Tommy has a plan Exceptional and to the rule That 9-5 will eventually suck the soul from you ...Screaming his lungs out Catch him when you can In a couple of days, he's back on a plane When Tommy's got a plan Won't miss a show, in the front row Quick when you're in a jam But you'll never know when he's bout to blow Cause Tommy's has a plan There's all the time in the world for the things that you love This is more than a need, plays his music high-speed, turn it up! GO TOMMY GO!

...And Left 02:04
We let it suffer, strip away the sinew from bone and display All that’s left to offer, but the shame begs a call to reclaim the course should you stray So here we are again… Ultimately I’m alone And left.. And left.. Unspeakable Undeterred When you shift your feet Please don’t consider me I am nothing special; You will only settle, nestled in comforting status quo So here we are again… Finally I’m alone and left… To find others to sing the same tune Teach someone a strain hardly new Another refrain in full view And left to..Entertain, entertain, entertain And left
12.
And then it was me, questions unanswered Left bloated, distended, the waste gathered flies Soliloquy, and tongues firmly pigeonholed There’s plenty of time to learn all the movements Dismissing improvements, ignoring exceptions And standard lines to press histories unfold It's OK to lose all that fear And it's OK to look forward another year Yes you deserve a brighter day Yeah it's OK to be OK The spokes on the wheel let down the cause But there is a pause more suggestive than grieving It’s hardly ideal, brings to mind apples and trees (slow) Envelop any patterns relating to you First it’s the key, and then it was me It's OK to lose all that fear And it's OK to look forward another year Yes you deserve a brighter day Yeah it's OK to be OK
