Track Name: Monochrome dream
Monochrome dream
THERE ARE THOSE THAT WALK AMONG US
THAT WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE
THAT VIOLENCE PREJUDICE AND HATE
IS THE ONLY WAY TO SUCCEED
A ONE TRICK PONY THAT WOULD LOVE A ONE HORSE TOWN
LITTLE MORE THAN A JOKER WEARING A CROWN
SO RIGHTEOUS SO PURE SO CLEAN
DON’T BE FOOLED BY THEIR MONOCHROME DREAM

THERE ARE THOSE THAT WALK AMONG US THAT WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE
THAT EXISTENCE IS BASED PURELY ON SELF AND GREED
A ONE TRICK PONY THAT WOULD LOVE TO BUY A ONE HORSE TOWN
WOULD LOVE TO BE KING BUT HAS SOLD HIS CROWN
SO RIGHTEOUS SO PURE SO CLEAN
PAID TOP DOLLAR FOR HIS MONOCHROME DREAM
Track Name: One last drop
One last drop, they’re gonna take all you got
They’re gonna drain this mother dry
And the drums no longer beat
And there’s silence on the street
And no one seems to question why

So law after law creeps in through the back door
As our liberties fade with the night
Do they care if we stand, with banner in our hand
You’ve already lost the fight
And still we bow down, with our backs to the wall
Still at the mercy of the corporate call
Forced to listen never given any choice
So much for your democratic voice

One last drop, they’re gonna take all you got
They’re gonna drain this mother dry
And the drums no longer beat
And there’s silence on the street
And no one seems to question why

Years will come and the years will go
And the hope and change never seem to show
And the wars still rage and the blood still flows
Promise after promise as talk is cheap
Same old rendition week after week
And nothing seems to change nothing seems to move
Same old record stuck in the same old groove
And nothing seems to change nothing seems to move
Same old record stuck in the same old groove

One last drop, they’re gonna take all you got
They’re gonna drain this mother dry
And the drums no longer beat
And there’s silence on the street
And no one seems to question why
Track Name: SLEEPING DOGS
SLEEPING DOGS
THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I’VE HEARD THE SAME
REPETITION FINGER POINTING LIES AND BLAME
BICKERING AND BANTER ACROSS THE PARLIAMENT FLOOR
AS THEY’RE JUGGLING WITH THE LIVES OF THE VULNERABLE AND POOR
ROBBED PETER TO PAY PAUL AS THE DIVIDE GETS BIGGER
BETWEEN THE HAVE NOT AND HAVE ALL


DON'T TREAT US WITH CONTEMPT
LIKE YOU’RE DOING US A FAVOR
YOU’RE ALWAYS THE DOWN FALL
NEVER THE SAVIOR
NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO QUESTION WHY
SLEEPING DOGS NO LONGER LIE

AND THE POLLING STATIONS ARE EMPTY
AND THE LAST OF THE SPIN HAS BEEN SPUN
AND APATHY HAS SET IN WITH THE VOTERS
THE QUIET REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN
AND STILL THE BROKEN PROMISES
KEEP ROLLING OFF THEIR TONGUE
Track Name: HAPPY
Happy
Rise above the bedlam take control
Don’t let the powers that be dilute your soul
Grab the bull by the horns and don’t let go
Resist the current swim against the flow
Rise to the challenge what you reap is what you sow
Don’t consent to a life stuck in limbo
Too much taken too little to give
Break the mould look to the alternative

Because this is it and there is no more
No higher plane just sod’s law
A different vein but the same old score

Treading water in a weary mill
Thinking blocked your position still
Apathy will creep like the dark
Taken out the sun dulling the spark
Dragged you deep into the void
Til all self-esteem is destroyed
Dragged you deep into the void
Til all self-esteem is destroyed

Because this is it and there is no more
No higher plane just sod’s law
Because this is it and there is no more
Don’t bank on no pearly door

Rise above the bedlam take control

Because this is it and there is no more
No higher plane just sod’s law
Because this is it and there is no more
Death is the only certainty of which you can be sure
Track Name: GRIN
GRIN
The Cheshire cat has lost its grin
Blinded by lies and spin
Consequences won’t haunt him
Like the emptiness of the next of kin

But it’s all for the cause
But it’s all for the cause
As long as it’s someone else’s balls
As long as it’s someone else’s balls
Stoking the funeral pyre
Relatives hanging on the wire
Killing in the name of the lord
Now ambassador for peace accord


The Cheshire cat has found the light
Seek redemption to save his plight
But if you stir up a wasps’ nest your bound to get stung
And the legacy of hate will run and run
Endorsed by the father and holy son
The cat that got the cream got to live his dream
To save our liberty and his after dinner fee
To save our liberty and his after dinner fee
No sign of even apology No sign of any wmd
And a million cried as the elected lied
And a million cried as the elected lied




But its all for the cause
But its all for the cause
As long as its someone else balls
As long as its someone else balls
Stoking the funeral pyre
Relatives hanging on the wire
Killing in the name of the lord
Now ambassador for peace accord
Track Name: WHAT DOES IT MATTER
WHAT DOES IT MATTER
WHAT DOES IT MATTER-WHAT YOU BELIEVE
WHAT DOES IT MATTER –WHO YOU DECEIVE
WHAT DOES IT MATTER-WHO GETS TRAMPLED ON THE WAY
AS LONG AS YOU WIN AT THE END OF THE DAY

IT MAY NOT MATTER TO YOU
BUT IT MATTERS TO ME
YEARS OF EMPTY PROMISES
AND A TRAIL OF MISERY

WHAT DOES IT MATTER-THE PROMISES YOU BREAK
WHAT DOES IT MATTER-IF YOU CAUSE HARDSHIP AND HEARTACHE
WHAT DOES IT MATTER-IT’S NOT YOUR FUTURE AT STAKE
YOU’LL STILL WALK WITH A GOLDEN HANDSHAKE

IT MAY NOT MATTER TO YOU
BUT IT MATTERS TO ME
YEARS OF EMPTY PROMISES
AND A TRAIL OF MISERY

WHAT DOES IT MATTER –IF YOU DON’T PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH
WHAT DOES IT MATTER- IF THE TRUST INSTALLED IS THE VERY THING YOU BREACH
WHAT DOES IT MATTER- GOAL POST MOVED AND UP THE STAKES GIVE WITH ONE HAND WHILE THE OTHER TAKES
Track Name: RUNNING ON EMPTY
RUNNING ON EMPTY
Running on empty/the cupboard is bare
Held together with a shoe string
And a song and a prayer
And all that you work for now hangs in the air
We’re running on empty/buyer beware

Cos dark clouds are gathering
In shades of black and grey
Batten down the hatches there’s a storm
On its way

shit has hit the fan/ 7 million a day Afghanistan
tighten your belt/one bum deal you’re going to be dealt
Told to save for a rainy day/but it’s just been washed away
pot is empty/ the river run dry/too many fingers in the pie

cos dark clouds are gathering
In shades of black and grey
Batten down the hatches there’s a storm
On its way

The gravy train has congealed
Some thieving bastard’s pockets filled
Out of the frying pan into the fire
No more boom and bust (liar)

Cos dark clouds are gathering
In shades of black and grey
Batten down the hatches cos its
YOU THAT’S GOING TO PAY
Track Name: Abracadabra
Abracadabra watch it disappear
And if by magic the age of austerity is here
the bright light of the future fading fast
they sent the warning shot now wait for the blast

going to cut it back trim it to the bone
take you out of your comfort zone
going to cut it back trim it to the bone
take you out of your comfort zone

going to cut it back trim it to the bone
take you out of your comfort zone
they planted the seed now watch it grow
and the city will reap what the city has sown
Track Name: WELCOME
Welcome
Welcome to the age of greed
With its overwhelming need
To rob and to steal
And to take more than your fill
To slash and to burn
To the point of no return
To blame and to hate
As you fucked your own fate

Welcome to the age of selfishness
Welcome to the age of fear
Welcome to the age of control
Welcome as we dig our own hole

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR CAUSE IT MIGHT COME TRUE.
WELCOME TO REALITY, IT'S WAITING FOR YOU.
WELCOME TO THE OUTLOOK FOR OUR MOTHERLAND.
FUTURE GENERATIONS DEALT THE LOSING HAND.
Welcome to a world that hangs in doubt
As capitalism crumbles and the lights go out
As the insecurities take hold
And all that you fear starts to unfold

Welcome to the age of vulnerability
Welcome to the age of fear
Welcome to the age of control
Welcome as we dig our own hole

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR CAUSE IT MIGHT COME TRUE.
WELCOME TO REALITY, IT'S WAITING FOR YOU.
WELCOME TO THE OUTLOOK FOR OUR MOTHERLAND.
FUTURE GENERATIONS DEALT THE LOSING HAND.


Welcome to a planet that no longer can sustain
Resources Stripped bear time and time again
No lessons learnt just love lost
On bended knees seeking mercy from a cross

Welcome to the age of hypocrisy
Welcome to the age of fear
Welcome to the age of control
Welcome as we dig our own hole
Track Name: ANOTHER
ANOTHER KNEE JERK REACTION
ANOTHER ALIENATED FACTION
ANOTHER COUNTRY AT THE MERCY
OF THE BOMB AND THE GUN
ANOTHER WAR ON A WHIM THAT WILL NEVER BE WON?

ANOTHER DECADE OF TURMOIL AND STRIFE
ANOTHER BODY BAG ANOTHER LOSS OF LIFE
ANOTHER MOTHER FATHER DAUGTHER
SON LIFES TORN APART WILL NEVER BE ONE

ANOTHER IED
ANOTHER AMPUTEE
ANOTHER VICTIM OF OLD BLIGHTYS FOREIN POLICY
Track Name: WE DONT SING
RISE YOU BASTARD ARISE
REACH OUT TO THOSE WITH FEAR IN THERE EYES
BLIND IGNORANCE WILL LEAD TO OUR DEMISE
SO RISE YOU BASTARDS RISE

FROM THE SAME HYMN SHEET
WE MAY NOT SING
ITS NOT WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE TABLE
ITS WHAT YOU BRING

DANCE YOU BASTARDS DANCE
YOU MAY NEVER GET A SECOND CHANCE
DANCE LONG INTO THE NIGHT
AND RAGE AGAINST THE FADING LIGHT

FROM THE SAME HYMN SHEET
WE MAY NOT SING
ITS NOT WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE TABLE
ITS WHAT YOU BRING

BREAK THE MOLD YOU BASTARD BREAK THE MOLD
YOUR BONES MAY NEVER MAKE OLD
LIFE IS TO SHORT TO BE CONTROLLED
BREAK THE MOLD YOU BASTARD BREAK THE MOLD
Track Name: WE STOOD ALONE TOGETHER
ONCE SOCIETIES REJECTS STRONG WITH NEW IDEAS
FRUSTRATION WITH OUR LIVES HELD TOGETHER WITH OUR FEARS
DETERMINED SOME ONE LISTEN AS WE CRYED WITH ONE VOICE
STAND UP AGAINST THE SYSTEM DEMAND ANOTHER CHOICE

WE STOOD ALONE TOGETHER /REFUSED THIS REAL WORLD
AND LABELLED AS WE WERE A NEW CREED HAD UNFURLED
DISSATISFIED ANGRY TIRED OF BEING PUT DOWN AND DOWN
TREATED AS ANOTHER CULT IGNORED WITH A FROWN

WERE WE THE REBELLIOUS YOUTH OF TODAY
THE GENERATION OF TOMORROW
WAS THERE ANY REAL MEANING OR WAS IT ALL JUST A FASION TO FOLLOW
Track Name: HUNGER PAINS
INSTANT GRATIFICATION IS WHAT WE CRAVE
TWENTY FIRST CENTURY DRUG OF CHOICE
FOR THE CONSUMER SLAVE
WE HAVE IT ALL BUT STILL WANT MORE
EMPIRES BUILT FROM THE BLOOD AND SWEAT OF POOR

AS HUNGER PAINS
FEED HIGH STREET CHAINS
TOP BRAND NAMES
SHAREHOLDER GAINS


16 HOUR DAYS ON THE SWEATSHOP FLOOR
ONLY TO FIND THE WOLF HAS ALREADY BROKEN DOWN THE DOOR

FEED HIGH STREET CHAINS
TOP BRAND NAMES
SHAREHOLDER GAINS


WESTERN CIVILIZATION DOING WHAT IT DOES BEST
EXPLOITATION OF THE POOREST NATIONS FOR OUR OWN INTEREST
