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

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

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

HAPPY 03:01
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

GRIN 03:39
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

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

Abracadabra 02:35
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

WELCOME 04:18
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
