Accident Prone

Here on our own, in our world of illusion,
We can be free, we can be what we am,
Closing the door, to society,
We think that life is a scam.

Don't go outside, there is trouble and danger,
We can be safe, we can live without pain,
We will embrace creativity,
Everyone's going insane.

Everybody wants to be
Part of the community,
One big happy family,
So we attract a similar kind,
Love will turn to treachery,
Friend will soon be enemy,
Union is a fallacy,
Filling the space inside your mind.

No need to talk, don't listen to what they said,
Who needs a drama growing inside your head?

Here on our own, we can heighten our senses,
Unhook the phone, there's no need to explain,
Accident prone on a planet where
Everyone suffers in vain.

A Dangerous Path

Think of the people who care for you, we know just how you’re feeling, careful of what you do, why trade integrity for quick sensation, try and remember that we love you.

Falling just like rain from the sky, you should be flying free like a bird flying free from the burden of pain, life's not supposed to be bound by chains, what are friends for.

Remember the days when we where close you found a new direction, a dangerous path you chose, it's hard to turn your back on those who tempt you, try and and remember that we love you.

Think of the people you left behind, we care, our hearts are with you, I only want to remind you of the voice that spoke with so much wisdom, try and remember that we love you.

Falling just like rain from the sky, you should be flying free like a bird flying free from the burden of pain, life's not supposed to be bound by chains, what are friends for.

Remember the day's when you where strong you showed so much compassion, you gave to everyone, your song will alway's be an inspiration, try and remember that we love you.

Another Phase

Hush now pretty baby don't you cry,
I will sing to you a lullaby,
Close your eyes and let the man of sand
Lead you on a trip to slumberland.

I will read to you a bed time tale,
As into the land of dreams you sail,
Forty winks are worth a thousand days,
Rest assured within another phase.

Dream of the places you've never been,
Then say hello to the morning, you will open your eyes,
Dance on a cloud in a timeless land,
Don't cry baby.

All the day you have been on your feet,
Come now pretty baby take a seat,
Moon is rising and the stars above,
Let me sing to you a song of love.

I will read to you a bed time tale,
As into the land of dreams you sail,
Forty winks are worth a thousand days,
Rest assured within another phase.

Dream of the places you've never been,
Then say hello to the morning, you will open your eyes,
Dance on a cloud in a timeless land,
Don't cry baby.

Arts and Farces

What will inspire creative desire?
Come up with something new because you're feeling inventive,
Burn as the fire gets higher and higher,
Gotta keep pursuing creative incentive.

Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces.

Nothing's for free, there's a certain degree
Of attention that is due it's a tricky dissection,
What will it be and will every one see
That you laboured as it grew and gave love and affection.

Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces.

Can you gain from stolen treasure?
Can you justify your pleasure?
How can you lose? You set the measure,
No point in making sense.
Make arts and farces,
Arts and farces.

What will you gain? Is the effort in vain?
Is it really any use put it up for inspection,
Can it remain in the public domain?
Can you save it from abuse and misguided rejection?

Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces,
Arts and farces.

Can you gain from all this torment?
Can you cope as life gets more bent?
What you receive is less than you spent,
That doesn't make much sense.

Let's hide from the world of lust and treason,
Finding a way to love and reason.
Nobody but yourself to please and
Try not to feel too tense,
Make arts and farces,
Arts and farces.

Chase the Bone

Somewhere though I'll never know how, the story began,
Strange burden on folk without choice, the pain of man.
I only know you from the news I heard today,
And as the children cry, I'm learning how to pray.

How many must die for the cause? The message is clear:
Blood red is the colour of war, strange world of fear.

Tell me can you recognise your master, can you see?
Watching sacred images on coloured TV,
Everything these days is going faster, find the breaks,
Careful or we'll all fall … down.

Listen to the people crying out for freedom,
Riot in the town, we watch them all fall down.

Why question the colour of life? Why judgment by creed?
The children are crying out loud, victims of greed.
Oppressive law forbidding freedom in your home,
Rich man eat all the flesh and make you chase the bone.

How many must die for the cause? The message is plain:
Blood red is the colour of war, strange world of pain.

Tell me can you recognise the preacher, how do you tell?
Everybody looks the same we're equal in hell,
Everybody listen to the teacher, what did he say?
Careful or we'll all fall … down.

Listen to the people crying out for freedom,
Riot in the town, we watch them all fall down.

Cro-Magnon Man

Creeping around in the still of the dark night,
An animal I walk the street, with caution I survive.
Being alone in the winter of my memory,
The evening air is thick and cold but I am still alive.
Rain falling down and I haven't got an overcoat,
My head is full of money and my pocket full of hope,
Hole in my shoe and I wish I had a cigarette,
I'm feeling tired and hungry and my skin could use some soap.

Gotta change my style of life,
Get a job and find a wife
But I do the best I can
Being like Cro-Magnon man.

I walk the streets in desperation like a homeless dog,
A slave to poverty, I only wanted freedom.

What can I do? Is there anybody out there?
An animal must have a mate but I am so alone,
Creeping around in the still of the dark night,
This lonely town is my address and the world is my phone.
Hole in my head and I wish I had a family,
Spend the darkness keeping warm and sleep beneath the sun.
Who can I trust? Look around every corner,
I wonder will I still be here, tomorrow never comes.

I could live a life of style,
Simple things would make me smile
But I do the best I can
Being like Cro-Magnon man.

I walk the streets in desperation like a homeless dog,
A slave to poverty, I only wanted freedom.

Cursed and Blessed

The church and the State and the wealthy conspire,
To keep us down and take what they desire,
Selfishness, greed and consumption embraced,
In the name of his holy grace.

Veil of darkness will disappear,
We won't stand in your shadow,
Exorcising the curse of God,
Ease the pain of religion.

Kept in the dark while amused by his tricks,
Hairy corpse on a crucifix,
Look at his beard and the way he was dressed,
It's confusing when you're cursed and blessed.

Death to the children, nobody cares,
Show more interest in your stocks and shares,
No caviar while you're feeling the crunch,
People starve while you eat your lunch.

Welcome lucifer, prince of light,
Bring us love from the darkness,
Rise the sun from the blackest night,
You return fallen angel.

The chairman of the board and the pope and president,
The holy trinity is corrupt and bent,
Kept in the dark, oh but now we can see,
Through your blatant hypocrisy.

We arise to the morning star,
Bring a new resolution,
Let the children of darkness shine,
Show them love, not religion.

Dangerous Devices

Will there be a happy ending? We are descending, everybody in despair, progress got us in a fine mess, everybody express panic and confusion, now we seek positive solution, lets make a better contribution, lets find another resolution then we can reclaim, peace love and sanity, goodness for shame, freedom from vanity, we can reclaim all things for everyone, take back the flame, all deeds can be undone.

Time is moving ever faster, facing disaster, living with a sense of fear, crisis that is what the price is, dangerous devices, negative collusion, now we seek positive solution, lets make a better contribution, lets find another resolution then we can reclaim, peace love and sanity, goodness for shame freedom from vanity, we can reclaim all things for everyone take back the flame, all deeds can be undone.

Now we're sorry and defeated, broken and cheated, never ending sacrifice, failure, its a sorry tale the story of betrayal you sell us an illusion, now we seek positive solution, lets make a better contribution, lets find another resolution then we can reclaim, peace love and sanity, goodness for shame freedom from vanity, we can reclaim all things for everyone, take back the flame, all deeds can be undone.

Do That Dance

Standing in a crowded room,
Feeling so alone,
Parties always bring me down,
Can I go home?
People dressed in funny clothes,
Parading across the floor,
Choking on their cigarettes,
Too cool to ignore.

I don't want to do that dance,
Smoke that thing or wear those pants,
Parties make me feel remote,
Help me find the antidote.

Looking at my empty glass,
Staring through my shades,
Counting all the other clones,
Watch them invade.
Mistaken identity
Seems to be your name,
Total immunity,
Let's all play the game.

I don't want to do that dance,
Smoke that thing or wear those pants,
Parties make me feel remote,
Help me find the antidote.
I don't want to pierce my nose,
Shave my head or decompose,
Fake a smile to win romance,
I don't want to do that dance.

Every Other Wednesday

We live inside a tin can in this modern day facade,
Surrounded by convenience, it's so easy that it's hard,
The reason for existence is a mystery to me
So please excuse me questioning my brothers sanity.

The kids are all at school today but soon they'll be employed,
Deciding what they want to be and what they should avoid,
While man's condition suffers from fallibility
I look into the future, I'm afraid of what I see.

Isn't it a lovely day, I can see it's raining heavily,
Not a cloud in the sky, nature must be crying,
Every other Wednesday I spend an hour with my psychiatrist,
Sitting on a comfy couch, he thinks that I'm crazy.

As the clock ticks by life overtakes my simple head,
Is there really any wonder that the flowers are all dead,
I think I'll take a walk and look at people in the rain,
Make love to mother nature while she's watering my brain.

And walking down the main street is like visiting a zoo,
I can't help wondering if the crowd has all gone crazy too
And what goes on in other people's minds I'll never see,
So please excuse me questioning my brothers sanity.

Isn't it a lovely day, I can see it's raining heavily,
Not a cloud in the sky, nature must be crying,
Every other Wednesday I spend an hour with my psychiatrist,
Sitting on a comfy couch, he thinks that I'm crazy.

Guiding Light

Tis the season to be failing, with the wind of ill we're sailing.

Can you feel the sense of disharmony stealing the pathway to love and wisdom? Guiding light of reason and empathy show us the way through this trouble and pain.

Optimistic dreams and fantasy they give protection from the harsh reality, they give us hope and they help us to find something beautiful there in your mind, your imagination is the key but who we think we are is what they never see and so you struggle and try to remain, there's nothing you need to explain.

Tis the season to be dying with the wind of ill we're flying.

Can you feel the sense of uncertainty stoking the fire of discontentment? guiding light of love and humility help us keep self let the dreaming remain.

Optimistic dreams and fantasy they give protection from the harsh reality, they give us hope and they help us to find something beautiful there in your mind, your imagination is the key but who we think we are is what they never see and so you struggle and try to remain, there's nothing you need to explain.

Innocence for Fear

They say that life is just a masquerade and the world is but a stage, we all assume responsibility so we must act our age but acting never was my specialty, i'm somewhere in-between and now I find the other half of me is lost within a dream.

See the face behind the mask it wants to speak out loud but the minds of men are crazy and the souls of women proud, intellect outweighs compassion worthy of a tear, our naked body'd clad in fashion innocence for fear.

I think that life is just a silly game that the whole world has to play, so I deny responsibility and live form day to day, it is much better as a fantasy, let's all avoid the truth but now I find the path is overgrown, there's no way back to youth.

See the face behind the mask it wants to speak out loud but the minds of men are crazy and the souls of women proud, intellect outweighs compassion worthy of a tear, our naked body'd clad in fashion innocence for fear.

Know Who We Really Are

We have known everything there is to know but we can't remember who we are, we have seen everything there is to see but we never ever look too far, we have loved everybody in the world but we haven't really got a friend, we have felt all the pain there is to feel, while the challenges of life impending.

We look within, beneath the skin, so that we might understand who we really are.

We have been everywhere there is to go but we never ever left this place, we have tried everything there is to try though in moderation just incase, we have lived for so many many years but we where born yesterday, we have heard everything there is to hear but we really don't know what we're saying.

We look within, beneath the skin, we can all get closer. I need to know you, you need to know me, we need to know each other find out who we might be, after all these years we can recognise ourselves and we know who we really are.

We have cried but we never shed a tear we where our walking in the rain, we have had every thought there is to have but we never ever once felt shame, we have prayed to so many different gods for the benefit of all mankind, we have found what we never even lost and forget that we all need reminding.

We look within, beneath the skin, we can all get closer. I need to know you, you need to know me, we need to know each other find out who we might be, after all these years we can recognise ourselves and we know who we really are.

Lament

Where is love? has it faded with the dream I had of a wonderful place, for which I am still searching.

Love and Sanity

Life in the city it can sure bring you down, too many people feel the same in this town, we travel far in search of love and sanity.

Whatever happened to compassion and hope we are preoccupied with fashion and soap, we travel far in search of love and sanity.

Nobody smiles as they look at you feet and love is nowhere to be seen, the lack of compassion out there on the street, do you know what I mean.

Stand in a crowd yet you can feel so alone, we cry out loud but we're forever unknown, we travel far in search of love and sanity.

Instead of searching through compassionate eyes, we trade our innocence for fashion and lies, we travel far in search of love and sanity.

Nobody smiles as they look at you feet and love is nowhere to be seen, the lack of compassion out there on the street, do you know what I mean.

Man of Mystery

He's got the biggest ego we do declare
And everywhere he goes the people stop and stare,
With special fundamentals and the golden rod,
He's everybody's father so he must be God.

He's got the biggest ego known to history,
So very well endowed a man of mystery,
Drives the women crazy, he's a love machine,
Ain't seen him here before he must be European.

He knows how to use it and he gets his kicks,
Teases all the ladies with his special tricks,
A miracle of nature it just grew and grew,
Satisfied every single girl he knew.

He's got the biggest ego no one can dispute,
No underpants will fit he wears a special suit,
It really is a mystery is it something that he ate,
I think it got gigantic cause he's in a higher state.

He's everybody's hero and we call him Dad,
Can't keep account of all the kids he's had,
With special fundamentals and the golden rod,
He's everybody's father so he must be God.

He's got the biggest ego no one can deny,
He likes to party he's a fun loving guy
And when he tries to dance it drags around the floor
And when he gets back home again it won't fit through the door.

He's everybody's idol cause he's cool and wise,
Superior to everyone in style and size,
Satisfaction guaranteed from every angle,
The pretty ladies like to watch his ego dangle.

He generates charisma and he likes to frolic,
Dribbles with finesse, like Jackson Pollock,
Enigmatic mystery so rarely seen,
Drives the women crazy, he's a love machine.

He's got the biggest ego we do declare
And everywhere he goes the people stop and stare,
With special fundamentals and the golden rod,
He's everybody's father so he must be God.

Master Plan

Life gets stranger as it passes by,
Finding love is hard though we still try.

The information tells us everything we're needing to know,
It gives us everything we want and it's ready to go,
Satisfaction guaranteed if you can work within the system
But I am what I am, a dysfunctional man,
Trying hard to understand the master plan.

Even as a child we broke all our toys,
Battle with our demons, are we never to be free?
Truth and danger will make men out of boys,
We're all too busy looking so we never can see.
How can we all change from stupid to wise,
Chasing an illusion there is never enough time,
Catalogue of failure is no surprise
As we remain complacent because everything's fine,
Yes I am what I am, a dysfunctional man,
Trying hard to understand the master plan.

Life gets stranger don't you wonder why?
Finding peace is hard though we still try.

And so you follow the instructions and you trust in the news,
They give you everything you need and it's ready to use,
Saturation leaves us incomplete and permanently brain dead,
Yes we are what we are, are you happy so far?
Suffer little children as you bear the scar,

Even as a child we knew how to fear,
Battle with our demons there was never enough joy,
Everywhere you look the problems appear,
No need for making bridges that we're going to destroy.
How can we all change from stupid to wise,
Chasing an illusion there is never enough time,
Catalogue of failure is no surprise
As we remain complacent because everything's fine,
Yes I am what I am, a dysfunctional man,
Trying hard to understand the master plan.

Matter and Space

Prove your point, justify the matter at hand,
Don't tell us anything we can't understand,
Keep it simple so it's easy to see,
Will the academics agree?

Analyse,
Can you prove the point conclusively,
Save confusion?

Calculate, contemplating matter and space,
What's the solution to the problems we face?
Does it work out mathematically?
Will the statisticians agree?

Clarify,
Will they understand when you explain
Your conclusion?

Rewrite the thesis and change the rules,
Challenge the answer its up for debate,
Gather the wise men and all the fools,
What we accepted has burdened our fate.

Show the children love and patience,
Set them free with open minds.

Challenge the way that we live,
Learn to forget and forgive,
Never without when you're with,
Seeking the alternative,
Better off with than without,
Truth is the reason for doubt,
Silence the voices that shout,
Love is what life is about.

Validate, then you get a little respect,
Proof is the only thing no one can reject,
Does it work out scientifically?
Will the academics agree?

Analyse,
Can you prove the point conclusively,
Save confusion?

Speculate, sacrificing knowledge for pain,
Strange fascination that is hard to explain,
Can you prove it categorically?
Will the statisticians agree?

Clarify,
Will they understand when you explain
Your conclusion?

Rewrite the pages of history,
Challenge the value of what we accept,
As we unravel the mystery,
All those who suffered indignity wept.

Show the children love and patience,
Set them free with open minds.

Challenge the way that we live,
Learn to forget and forgive,
Never without when you're with,
Seeking the alternative,
Better off with than without,
Truth is the reason for doubt,
Silence the voices that shout,
Love is what life is about.

Moron

Wake up every morning in a sorry state I lay,
My dreams become a nightmare as I face another day,
But first a shave and then a cup of stimulating brew,
To save five ticks, miss my Bix,
Are you a moron too?

How can we all be living in a world avoiding truth?
Ignorance is bliss — Grandma was proof.
She overdosed on tea it was the only thing to do,
But I always laughed at the way she said,
'Are you a moron too?'

I know what you're gonna say,
Deny it till your dying day,
Join the queue and shut your mind,
If you are of moron kind,
Toe the line and bang your head,
Listen what the moron said.

Granddad was a gardener, loved his little plants,
Sprayed them with organic stuff to keep away the aunts,
And down the club on Wednesday night for stimulating brew,
And I always laughed at the way he said,
'Are you all morons too?'

One by one we pass away and two by two we're born,
As evening shadows pass I hear a bell that says it's morn,
Better stop my dreaming and catch the ten to eight,
I've work to do and we all know that morons can't be late,
They copulate.

I know what you're gonna say,
Deny it till your dying day,
Join the queue and shut your mind,
If you are of moron kind,
Toe the line and bang your head,
Listen what the moron said.

Much to Dream About

No way back to yesterday, where the children play, we had much to dream about.

No way back to long ago, where the flowers grow, we had much to dream about.

Back when we could plan the future, back when we where hopeful, daring to dream.

Mother nature neglected, sanity is rejected, power to the selected, everybody affected. Apathy is impending, negative and extending, fear and loathing are trending, see community bending.

No way back to yesteryear, when the light was clear, we had much to dream about.

No way back to long before, gone forever more, we had much to dream about.

Back when we where optimistic, back when we where hopeful, sharing the dream.

Mother nature is bleeding, sanity is conceding, fools and hypocrites leading, those who follow are needing. Apathy is protected, fear and loathing projected, fools and money respected, sanity has defected.

New Door

What's the purpose of our existence, what is life for?
Hope will give us a chance to reconcile and learn more,
Fate is guiding us on our journey through a new door,
Time is never enough so live a little while you're
Waiting so patiently,
The future is what must be,
Receive all that's due,
Take time and let magic happen for you.

Every moment is a rebirth,
Only here and now is what our life's worth
And it really comes as no surprise,
Here and now the moment never dies.

So much wondering, yet there is no explanation,
Find the answer within alleviate frustration,
There is beauty inside this morbid fascination,
Seeking happiness here in deepest contemplation.
Waiting so patiently,
The future is what must be,
Receive all that's due,
Take time and let magic happen for you.

Every flower, every romance,
Every time we see the sun and rain dance
And it really comes as no surprise,
That the one devoid of loving cries.

What's the purpose of our existence, what is life for?

New Frontier

Sunrise is near, darkness is fading we gaze at the new frontier, give thanks to the day, morning is clear, waking us from rest in sleepless dreams, changing the atmosphere while shadows fade away.

Listen to the rain falling from the sky, nothing to explain, so beautiful, everything is clear, perfect in design, shadows disappear, nature is divine.

There through the haze shadows reclaiming the night from the end of day, escape from the sun, so far away, touching the horizon magically, there as the light decay's now that the day is done.

Listen to the rain falling from the sky, nothing to explain, so beautiful, everything is clear, perfect in design, shadows reappear, nature is divine.

New Ways of Losing

What are the chances, who has the answers, some will be still while others are dancers, some are deceiving conniving and thieving, take from the wretched, take from the grieving.

Life is confusing strange and abusing, now we’re defining new ways of losing.

Now there is poison earth where the flowers grew, none for the meek and all for the chosen few.

Be this as it may, dying flame, futile game.

Now there is lack of faith in the life we seek, all for the strong and none for the lame and weak.

Blind from all we see, fading beam, hopeless dream.

Panic and treason, rhyme without reason, take what you can in opulent season, bleeding and aching, shattered and breaking, rest for the sleeping will be waking.

Life is confounding, strange and astounding, come back to earth its there for the grounding.

Now as the danger changes the life we knew, all that we are and all of the things we do.

Be this as it may, tragic theme, failing scheme.

Now there is poison earth where the children play, social cohesion failing in every way.

Blind from all we see, fading beam, hopeless dream.

One Way Track

Look at all the busy people, running round in a circle, it's a very strange thing indeed, following the agenda, execute the plan, chasing what we need.

We travel far, on a journey that teaches us who we are, through time and space, we are making the best of this crazy place, no turning back, the commitment is made it's a one way track.

Look at all the busy people chasing their tail, why do we suffer and die? Living for the fun and good bits, very few and far between its why we keep on trying.

Everyone of us is different, none of us the same, some are happy some are in despair, living for the fun and good bits, very few and far between its crazy over there.

We travel far, on a journey that teaches us who we are, through time and space, we are making the best of this crazy place, no turning back, the commitment is made it's a one way track.

Will we ever know the answer? sorry I forgot the question, where have all the wise men gone? while we have a leg to stand on we shall survive, life goes on and on, life goes on and on, life goes on and on. on and on and on.

Opulent Trip

In a corporate society,
Everyone of us are soon to be,
Candidates for loss and bankruptcy,
Everybody's waking up to the scam,
Realising what the consequence will be,
Everybody try to do what you can,
Change the way we live, it's necessary.

Everybody's trying hard to keep up with the Smiths and Joneses,
Everybody is afflicted with take as much as everyone else does,
Everyone of us to blame: if we don't even show resistance,
We don't have to be the same as we always were.

In a corporate society,
Power freaks who share impunity,
Slowly breaking up community,
Everybody's trying hard to get by,
Realising what the consequence will be,
Everybody's waking up to the lie,
Change the way we live, it's necessary.

Everybody is concerned that there's not quite enough to go round,
Everybody is afflicted with need for instant gratification,
Everyone of us to blame if we don't change the situation,
We don't have to be the same as we always were.

Now we're fed from a drip
By the corporate whip,
We'll go down with the ship
On this opulent trip,
Held in apathy's grip
And its hard to unzip,
And the fabric of justice beginning to rip,
Heed the slope of destruction we're starting to slip,
Don't put faith, don't put trust in a digital chip,
Don't be slave to the master we must re equip.

In a corporate society,
Life is very hard we all agree,
There's a lack of opportunity,
Everybody knows it's obvious now,
Realising what the consequence will be,
Surely we can make it better somehow,
Change the way we live, it's necessary.

Everybody's trying hard to keep up with the Smiths and Joneses,
Everybody is afflicted with take as much as everyone else does,
Everyone of us to blame: if we don't even show resistance,
We don't have to be the same as we always were.

Party for One

No particular time or place, no need of sense or reason, in solitude we might find sanity.

No decisions that need be made, no need to make commitment,  leave dependancy far behind finally.

No dialogue to right the wrong, no further education, stay at home where I belong, happy here in isolation. Won't play the game or fit right in, don't need a conversation, forget it all as we begin, solitude and dedication.

There is trouble and danger close the gate, In a bubble we're safe we can deviate.

I decline, I refrain,  leave me out of the game, hide away, break the chain, lose you face, lose your name.

No desire for company, no need of complication, simplicity we embrace gratefully.

No discussions that need be had, no chance of contradiction, here the party for one begins silently.

No need to mingle in the crowd, haven't any obligation, why contribute and shout aloud why suffer with the nation. Why analyse the point of view, not looking for the answer, It doesn't matter what you do I'm a solitary dancer.

There is trouble and danger close the gate, In a bubble we're safe we can deviate.

I decline, I refrain, leave me out of the game, hide away, break the chain, lose you face, lose your name.

Poison Candy

Undeniably,
An eye for an eye makes it hard to see,
All the world is blinder,
Will our destiny
Be without peace or security,
Will the future find the
Tension mounting,
Body counting,
Poison candy,
Please oh can we
Be like Gandhi.

Find humility,
Pray for a future of sanity,
Testify in silence,
We can peacefully
Alter the cycle of history,
Put an end to violence.
Broken treaty,
Sad graffiti,
Pain increases,
Let love seize us,
Be like Jesus.

Power Zone

If I were God I'd change this place,
Unify the human race,
You wouldn't have to die or go insane,
Feel alone or suffer pain.

If I were God you'd all rejoice,
Sing my praise in happy voices,
Peace and harmony I'd bring,
If I were God I'd do the right thing.

Life would be so simple,
If I had my chance,
You're sure to get to heaven
If you pay cash in advance,
So build for me an ivory tower,
Join me in my finest hour,
Kneel before me at the throne,
Take me to the Power Zone.

If I were God I'd put things right,
Guide you through the darkest night,
Everybody safe under my command,
Let me help your mind expand.

If I were God there'd be no war,
Peace on earth for ever more,
So don't think twice give me the nod,
Vote for me, I'll be a good God.

Life would be so simple,
If I had my chance,
You're sure to get to heaven
If you pay cash in advance,
So build for me an ivory tower,
Join me in my finest hour,
Kneel before me at the throne,
Take me to the Power Zone.

Salvation

And if they crucified the one and only saviour of all man kind, are we the legacy of suffering and violence in chains that bind, so many years of lies and treachery and control of human fate, you gave the fear that will remain and keep us simple confined and straight you promised us the earth and guaranteed that there will be salvation for those who pray, and as we turn the other cheek and make the sacrifice we all must conform, obey,

I really don't believe it's written to deceive its there to keep us all in, service we slave, cradle to grave, we must be meek, we must behave, worship the name, suffer in vain, turning the cheek, bearing the pain.

And so the prophecy of fools is now the burden that we will share, with sin we venture fourth and multiply and pray to the cross we bear, without forgiveness and redemption we're in limbo, we hope, we wait, for something better than this antiquated system illuminate, you promised us the earth and guaranteed that there will be salvation for those who pray, and as we turn the other cheek and make the sacrifice we all must conform, obey,

I really don't believe it's written to deceive its there to keep us all in, service we slave cradle to grave, we must be meek we must behave, worship the name, suffer in vain, turning the cheek bearing the pain.

Shadows

Round and round and round we go,
Where it stops we'll never know,
Moon at night reflect and glow,
See changing shape as shadows grow.

I want to go into outer space,
Not be held down by gravity,
Floating
Far from human depravity.
No need to think about earthly burdens
Or decline of morality,
Drifting,
Enter the infinite cavity.

On the sea of tranquility,
Astronomical refugee,
Nowhere else I would rather be,
Astrophysical devotee.

Roaming around in the universe,
Take time to wonder and deviate,
Let go,
Negative thought we eliminate.
No need to worry about the world
And sanity we can reinstate,
Count down,
Get in the rocket and elevate.

Astro therapy brain repair
(No overdraft or cross to bare)
Astronomical aftercare
(Unlimited space with room to spare)
Lots of nothing that we can share
(The truth is all we need declare)
Astrophysical love affair
(We venture forth with extra flair)

Round and round and round we go,
Where it stops we'll never know,
Moon at night reflect and glow,
See changing shape as shadows grow.

Travelling here at the speed of light,
No sign of human atrocity,
Earthling
Suffering much animosity.
Time is irrelevant here and now
Surrender to the velocity,
Count down,
Satisfy curiosity.

On the sea of tranquility,
Astronomical refugee,
Nowhere else I would rather be,
Astrophysical devotee.

Astro therapy brain repair
(Get in the rocket, I'll take you there)
Astronomical aftercare
(No need to worry about your hair)
Lots of nothing that we can share
(No forms to fill or questionnaire)
Astrophysical love affair
(No bureaucrats to cause despair)

Round and round and round we go,
Where it stops we'll never know,
Moon at night reflect and glow,
See changing shape as shadows grow,
See changing shape as shadows grow,
See changing shape as shadows grow.

Social Insecurity

Progress and technology make us crazy, whats the future for life in the new society? corporate anarchy, greed for freedom, teach the children that life is a stupid game, our hopes denied although we tried to regain equality, hope turns to apathy, where has sanity gone.

Progress and technology lead us blindly, whats the future for life in the new society? sadness and disparity there to find we tell the story of life as it really is, a sorry tale of those who fail, any fool would surely know, we're at an all time low, truth is showing, how can we say that life's OK when children have no goal, the script provides no role, technology for soul.

Life insanity, where is humanity, greed and vanity, social insecurity, those in poverty need more than sympathy, will we ever regain control?

Progress and technology human nature, whats the future for life in the new society, violence and apathy bare no fruit, the time has come to be making a drastic change, our world decays, the sad one prays, any soul who really cares won't turn away and there's no denying, how can we say that life's OK when children have no dream, no hope or self esteem, our duty to redeem.

Life insanity, where is humanity, greed and vanity, social insecurity, those in poverty need more than sympathy, will we ever regain control?

Sooner Than Now

Heard about the latest device, get it at the minimum price, got to get it sooner than now, you want to be upgraded and highbrow.

Ready for another update, will it be a lover and mate, does it have compassion and feel and will it shine a light and be healing.

Upgrade, keep up with continual changes now cause we don't want to be left behind, blindly, we embrace a virtual system, will it bring you sanity and be kinder.

Heard about the latest design, will it be appealing and shine, will it give us hope and defend and will it love us all and be friendly.

Ready for another update, willing to surrender our fate, can it help us not to feel strange? don't want to be in digital danger.

Upgrade, keep up with continual changes now cause we don't want to be left behind, blindly, we embrace a virtual system, will it bring you sanity and be kinder?

Strange Times to be Human

How can we trust in the future of humanity?
overcome by lust and vanity,
don't know who we are or who we want to be,
only to embrace stupidity,
try as we must to regain our sensibility,
how can we be happy and free.

Doesn't take much to keep everybody satisfied,
government agenda ratified,
everyone of us in debt and pacified,
many feeling lost and terrified,
try and accept, though it never can be justified,
how can we be happy and free.

Now were confused in a world of insecurity,
better take care not to stumble and fall,
how did we lose the compassion and humility,
very strange time to be human.

We must reject, what they evoke, dispel the curse on all good folk,
modern day life lacks happiness and sanity,
very strange time to be human.

Try and adjust to the panic and delirium,
how do we survive on minimum,
positivity is wearing thin again,
negative result they win again,
try as we must though we take it on the chin again,
how can we be happy and free.

How can we learn if devoid of rationality,
better take care not to stumble and fall,
oh how we yearn for compassion and humility.
Very strange time to be human.

We must reject, what they evoke, dispel the curse on all good folk,
modern day life lacks happiness and sanity,
very strange time to be human.

We must be strong, take the controls, dispel the curse on all good souls,
modern day life lacks happiness and sanity,
very strange time to be human.

Stumble Perfectly

Steal the scent of a rose then close your eyes and dream,
All statistics never could explain,
Reasons never satisfy the soul,
Find a way to be silent though you want to scream,
In the face of darkness and adversity,
Find a way to live and stumble perfectly,
Steal the scent of a flower nourished by the tears of sadness,
Such emotion,
There's no need to cry another ocean,
Dedication is the potion,
Stumble perfectly with such devotion.

Substance Abuse

Ritual, serious compulsion,
Constant need, what's your addiction?
Deviate, use as distraction,
Victims of fatal attraction.
Tempted now, feel the seduction,
How we crave, seek satisfaction,
Let's exchange, make the transaction,
Make it last, just use a fraction.

Substance abuse,
Hard to refuse,
Habits amuse,
Tempt and seduce.

Once we where tempted to try it,
Make the choice, can we defy it?
Must acquire, steal it or buy it,
Let's prepare, need to apply it.
Let's get high, can we sustain it?
Comfort zone, need to maintain it,
Justify, hard to explain it,
Self respect, can we regain it?

Substance abuse,
Hard to refuse,
Habits amuse,
Tempt and seduce.

Favourite taste must be located,
Need to feel somehow elated,
Numb the pain, let's get sedated,
Need to be intoxicated.
Happiness now simulated,
Seems that we miscalculated,
Pay the price, lost and berated,
Self respect somehow negated.

Substance abuse,
Hard to refuse,
Habits amuse,
Tempt and seduce.

Tender Loving Way

I'll tell you all a story that could make a grown man cry,
It happened only yesterday, why did she have to die?
It's all about an angel, such a tender loving way,
She gave her life to everyone, compassion on display.

So where do I begin? I really don't know where to start,
To speak of her departure is enough to break your heart,
I'll start it at the end and get it over with because
The truth is far too painful if we contemplate the loss.

I loved, though never knew her,
Why do angels fly away?

Her policy was love to those afflicted with despair,
She never tired of giving, generosity so rare.
Her message was a light that shines an everlasting glow,
It's radiating brightly, she's a flower in the snow.

So where do I begin to tell of how she gave it all,
The unrelenting hero, who was four foot nothing tall,
The wondrous inspiration who could never face defeat,
Now rests in peace eternally, her mission is complete.

I loved, though never knew her,
Why do angels fly away?

The Magic Telling Bone

Who's that there inside me,
I don't know your name
But I'm sure you are to blame,
Mary left me yesterday,
Why did you drive her away?
She was so good to me,
I showed her no mercy,
Now I'm left here with the beast to pay.

Silently, I wait for you,
To call me on the Magic Telling bone.

Do I deserve to be left in a heap,
Yes! you are vile, you unscrupulous creep.
I give all my love to Mary,
Virgin mother of my dreams.

Who's that there inside me,
Way down in the hole,
Why do you torment my soul,
Mary left me in the car,
So afraid of what you are.
She was so good to me,
I showed her no mercy,
Now I'm left here with the beast to pray.

Silently, I wait for you,
To call me on the Magic Telling bone.

Do I deserve to be feeling so sad,
Yes, you are crazy so savage and bad.
I give all my love to Mary,
Virgin mother of my dreams.

Who's that there inside me,
Go now please be gone,
How long must you linger on,
Mary left me all alone
By the Magic Telling bone.
Mary, come back to me,
I showed you no mercy,
Now I'm left here with the beast's toupée.

Silently, I wait for you,
To call me on the Magic Telling bone,
The Magic Telling Bone,
The Magic Telling bone,
The Magic Telling bone.

The Plan

Life seems empty, without purpose, choose direction, make a plan,
face the future, strong and fearless, one foot forward, yes we can.

The satisfaction that we all desire and try to find,
may not make us any happier or satisfy
and if you think about the future with an open mind,
it doesn't matter if you fail if you try.

The implication is to do your best and then succeed,
get a trophy and a quality hand shake,
a certificate of merit and they all agreed
that they approve of what you make
and so you give more than you take.

The expectation of result in what we can achieve,
is putting pressure on our need for productivity,
we evaluate how much we give and then receive,
we are devoted unconditionally.

Life seems empty, without purpose, choose direction, make a plan,
face the future, strong and fearless, one foot forward, yes we can.

With dedication there is nothing that we can't complete,
give attention as we care for it so lovingly,
satisfaction of completion will be tasting sweat,
its even better if you like what you see.

The implication is to do your best and get respect,
congratulations for undying commitment,
a certificate of merit has desired effect,
it is reward for time we spent,
we are accomplished and content.

If you believe in what your doing then it can't be wrong,
it is a pleasure to embrace the opportunity,
committed to the chosen path we must be strong,
we are devoted unconditionally.

Life seems empty, without purpose, choose direction, make a plan,
face the future, strong and fearless, one foot forward, yes we can.

Therapy Session

Stress, feel the tension increase,
When will anxiety cease?
Fear takes over and I can't avoid
Feeling slightly paranoid.
Why is it hard to relax?
Try while society cracks.

As the world goes crazy,
How do we stay sane?
How can one be peaceful
When surrounded by pain?
Why do I get nervous?
How can we be free?
Turn to meditation
And psychology.

Repeat the mantra, make my appointment,
My affirmation gets louder each day,
Defeat the demon, that lives within me.

Cry, as I slowly regress,
Life is a terminal mess,
Think I need a therapy session,
Overcome this damn depression,
Why is this so hard to take?
I watch society break.

As the population
Slowly goes insane,
Hope for resolution,
Am I hoping in vain?
What's the diagnosis?
How can we be free?
Turn to medication
And psychology.

Repeat the mantra, make my appointment,
My affirmation gets louder each day,
Defeat the demon, that lives within me.

The River

Follow me down to the river, making its way to the sea, I need to be near the water, come to the river with me.

Born of the mountains in springtime, seasonal like the rain, making its way through the valley, take away tousle and pain.

Holly river deep and wide, I am humble by your side, how you slither peacefully, flow eternally, we can be free.

Follow me down to the river, there we can redeem, down to the water so tranquil, follow me to the stream.

Born of the mountains in springtime, child of the ice and snow, making it's way to the ocean, you help when I'm feeling low.

Holly river deep and wide, I am humble by your side, how you slither peacefully, flow eternally, we can be free.

The View

Looking out my window staring at the view,
will this cloudy day be bringing something new.
Looking at the houses where the folk reside,
many different facets of a life applied.

What we’re given is what we get, face the future with no regret.

Looking in the mirror staring at my face,
talking to myself in this lonely space.
Look into the future , does the way seem clear,
looking in the mirror as aI face my fear.

Time has no meaning, its a fabrication, figment of the human mind,
rhyme has no value within conversation.
Lately I've been feeling lonely.

What we’re given is what we take, life for living and what we make.

Looking at the people in the restless crowd,
listen to their voices as they cry out loud.
Feel the hope of many that we might be free,
travel on the journey throughout history.

Write me a letter don't forget to send it,
whats the state of your mental health,
hope you feel better and are on the mend,
I've heard you’re feeling sad and lonely.

Waving a Righteous Hand

Globalisation,
Corporate invasion,
Misinformation,
The implication
Is open season,
For no good reason,
Expand the frontier,
Give us a bum steer.

Take everything you can,
Peruse every opportunity,
So self righteous,
Fake prophet of the chosen few,
Celebrate impunity,
You're the mightiest.

It's a fallacy
That we can be free
When it's open season,
False democracy,
Satellite TV,
All for no good reason.

You have the power,
That's how you rule,
We know it's you that we're afraid of,
Look like the wise one
But you're the fool,
Waving a righteous hand.

You challenge evil,
That's what you do,
Lucifer is your favourite scapegoat,
We think the culprit
Might just be you,
Waving a righteous hand.

Communication,
Subtle persuasion,
TV sensation,
Brainwash the nation,
We lose what you found,
You stand on high ground,
Expand potential,
Progress essential.

Take everything you can,
Peruse every opportunity,
So self righteous,
Make profit for the chosen few,
Powerful in unity,
You're the mightiest.

It's a fallacy
That we can be free
When we lose what you found,
And relentlessly
Sell the policy
From where you are on high ground.

You challenge evil,
That's what you do,
Lucifer is your favourite scapegoat,
Look like the wise one
But you're the fool,
God said you can take children for fuel,
Waving a righteous hand.

Wonderful Place

Let’s go to the moon, see the light reflect and glow, changing shape as shadow's grow, satellite in constant motion, very much like me every day you disappear, we can't find you anywhere, while you’re gone I'll try and catch the sun.

Born in a moment of fire, burning within, calling me to a wonderful place, taking me back to the flame.

Island in the sky, there for all eternity, defy the laws of gravity, satellite in constant motion, very much like me, every night we see your worth, turn the tide and light the earth, while you’re gone I'll try and catch the sun.

Born in a moment of fire, burning within, calling me to a wonderful place, taking me back to the flame.

Words Unspoken

Once we where so near, now it seems that we're far apart, there's no communication, absent friend not forsaken, distant lover.

Once we where so close, now the future knows what will be, as we reflect and find the meaning of words unspoken hearts are broken.

Frailty come's between us sadly, no one feels rejection gladly, as we reflect and find the meaning of words unspoken from so far away.

Here in solitude easy to elude love and pain, friendship brings confrontation, drift apart in translation, love's not easy.

Here where nothing grows fear is all he knows, why do we not feel at peace in union though we love one another from a distance.

Frailty come's between us sadly, no one feels rejection gladly, as we reflect and find the meaning of words unspoken from so far away.
