1. Camouflage To White

Out here the stars are still shining
Recalling — events
Of pleasures that were just yesterday
Now reality finds you
Alone as a man
Trying to find the strength to be one
There’s so many just like you
Just hanging out there
Waiting to deliver the night
They could easily find you
And all I’ve got are fears
Of turning camouflage to white
Lady luck sits beside you
You pray with your life
She takes you home with her one more time
Measure your understanding
The situations born
A need to function and stay alive
When reality finds you
The days of your life
Open up before your own eyes
It so easily found you
And all your darkest fears
Have turned this camouflage to white
Chant:
I know
At night
That you
Never see the light
So dark
Like you
Alone
Camouflage to white


2. Old Mother Earth

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
I JUST CAN’T STOP FALLING
MOTHER OF MY DREAMS
I’LL END MY DAYS WITH YOU
DON’T LET ME DOWN
STAY WITH ME NOW

THE RIVER OF YOUR DREAMS WILL CARRY ME FOREVER
TO TREASURES STILL UNKNOWN
AND LOVE I’VE YET TO SEE
DON’T STAY AWAY
HOLD TIGHT AND SAY

AT THE START OF IT ALL
I REALLY THOUGHT WE’D COME THROUGH
YOU SAID…GREED HAD EVOLVED
I COULDN’T TAKE IN THAT VIEW
NOW…TELL ME THE TRUTH
IS A RICH MAN BETTER SERVED
ARE THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD SO BAD
THAT I CAN’T STAND UP TO YOU

SHOW ME A FREEDOM THAT THIS WORLD CAN EARN
“’CAUSE YOUR LADY IS WAITING”
CROSS ALL YOUR BRIDGES AND AND STEP DOWN TO OLD
MOTHER EARTH
“SHE IS ALWAYS WORTH SAVING”

AT THE BREAK OF THAT DAY
DELIBERATIONS CAME THROUGH
THEY SAID…WHAT CAN BE DONE
IS IT TOO LATE TO CHOOSE
WHO CAN WE TRUST
WHO CAN WE BELIEVE
DOES A MAN HAVE TO BEG SO HARD
THAT HE’S DOWN ON HIS KNEES

OUT OF THE SHADOWS A LIGHT WILL EMERGE
“NOW YOUR FREEDOMS EVOLVING”
TAKE IT WITH BOTH OF YOUR HANDS
IT’S TIME TO ASERT
SHOW ME A FREEDOM THAT SOMEONE CAN GIVE IN RETURN
“’CAUSE YOUR LADY IS WAITING”
CROSS ALL YOUR BRIDGES
AND STEP DOWN TO OLD MOTHER EARTH
“SHE IS ALWAYS WORTH SAVING”

3.  Child of Mine

Child of mine
Open your eyes
And you’ll see What dreams hold for you
Newly born
Child of mine
Beating heart
Heart beating strong
Reaching arms
Come to me now
Newly born Child of mine
Ooh.. Child of mine
Trust in me
Newly born
Child of mine
Ooh
Child of mine

4.Phazed by the Storm

Fathers of the stars
We came and now we part
You know only time will tell
The answers to our dreams at night
Saviours of our hearts
We came in peace with god
It seems, were searching for amends
For those children we won’t see again
Old man, sitting in his daydream A romance, o book that no-one else sees
But he knows, there’s some things that we can’t be
He’s the giver, and spirit of a mans dream
Please take it away
I can’t stay anymore
Phazed, phazed by the storm
I can’t take anymore
Old man, the day you came to
see me
You gave me, more than just a vision It was a passion, my heavy heart became free
Free to wonder and taste the fruit of life’s tree
Please take it away
I can’t stay anymore
I’m phazed, phazed by the storm
I can’t stay in this world
Please take me away
Old man sitting
In his daydream
No-one can know
What he’s thinking
Let your mind stroll
Let your heart roam
Don’t you know you’re phased by the storm


5. Always

Making the move
No time to prophesize
The secret is out, oh it’s not right
We’re breathless and out of time
The choice is ours
To stay or go
For always always
In your eyes
I could go or you could stay
I will look
it’s up to you my friend
To see where it all began
the secret’s out, the choice Is yours
Was it you
we’re running out of time
Who really helped
The life of a frightened child
Now I could go
But could you stay
Always…..
I could go
But could you stay
For always ... always
 
Ever
Why must this be forever?
Tell me now
Ever
That sounds so long
And so forever
Never
All that I hear is
Never
Tell me then
If there’s a heaven
Why can’t it be there inside you?
Ever
Why must this be, forever?
Tell me now
Ever
That sounds so long
And so forever
Never
All that I hear is
Never
Tell me then
If there’s a heaven
Why can’t it be there inside you?
The secret is out
And times running short
To stay or to go
The choice is still yours
All that I hear
Is what could have been
It’s now up to you
To change how you feel


6. Dancin' Into The Void

Water flowing
life evolving
Weapon making
Burning baking
System user
Real-time abuser
There’s no solution
Just evolution
Life was so simple
Had everything we need
And everything was clean
Now there’s no stopping
Hang your head in shame
We’re dancin’ into the void again
Never ending
Patent pending
Endless craving
Widow making
Life was so simple
Had everything we need
And everything was clean
Now there’s no question
Hang your head in shame
We’re dancin’ into the void again
Make your decisions
Put yourself in the queue
Prepare yourself for the move
Now there’s no stopping
Just hang your head in shame
We’re doncin’ into the void again
Lets just draw a picture
Of this world we all live in
There’s nothing that you can’t erase
Or even pencil in
No self respecting alien
Would give a second glance
Let’s face it, it’s a hopeless task
We haven’t got a chance
So how we gonna market
This old bubble we call ours
When it’s battered, bruised,
exhausted
And counting down the hours
We could take it off the market
And do some D.I.Y.
But how do you a loin forest
Or mend holes in the sky
Our drains just ain’t big enough
To take El Nino
So unless we build a million arks
We’ll have nowhere to go
We’ll be floatin’ on a pond
That’ll stretch from there to here
And as long as we keep playing God
We’ll have nothing left to lose my friend
But everything to fear
When we’re standing there
For the curtain’s fall
And the final dance
Is to the void evermore
And you find your star
A million years away
Just remember this
We could have saved it all


7. The Debate

On the one side
There are those who think we should wait
On the other
Some of us are chasing the day
It’s just crazy
There’s nothing more that this world can give
Yet this selfish
Human kind are searching once again

How do you say
That the world has been drained “it’s the end”?
How do you know
When the bubble explodes what is left
Do we believe
After all that we’ve seen it’s just fate
I tell you my friend
Before it’s the end
Let’s Debate

It’s so easy
And clear as day for all of us to see
Though’ people wonder
What a million tomorrows will bring
I see the future
A low budget radio active play
A land laid bare and empty
A soulless place of darkness dust and pain

How do you say
That the world has been drained “it’s the end”?
How do you know
When the bubble explodes what is left
Do we believe
After all that we’ve seen it’s just fate
I tell you my friend
Before it’s the end
Let’s Debate

It’s just crazy
There’s nothing more that this world can give
Yet this selfish
Human kind are searching once again
It’s so easy
And clear as day for all of us to see
Though’ people wonder
What a million tomorrows will bring
How do you say
That the world has been drained “it’s the end”?
How do you know
When the bubble explodes what is left
Do we believe
After all that we’ve seen it’s just fate
I tell you my friend
Before it’s the end
Let’s Debate

Try as we may
We just can’t stop the slide
Were dancing on into the void
An army of users
That take it in vain
Destruction of what we hold true
To cradle this earth
Hold hands in the night
And fight, for what we believe
Savor the day
That the future will
That maybe our children will see
Cherish the thought
That it won’t last that long
The sell-by dates now at an end
Just finish your Starship
And climb on aboard
It’s time to go searching again
Finish your Starship
And climb on aboard
It’s time to go searching again……………



8. After the Fall

AFTER THE FALL
AND TEARS ROLL AWAY
THE PAIN AND THE TRUTH
OF THE LESSONS WE LEARNED
START TO FADE

THE ARROGANT CHILD
HE THOUGHT HE KNEW BEST
CREATING THE SCALE OF THE RUIN
THAT LAID US TO REST

NOW THAT IT’S GONE
AND WE FAILED HER TEST
CAN SHE BE REACHED
IT’S THE MOTHER OF ALL
WHO KNEW BEST

AFTER THE FALL
THESE CLOUDS DRIFT AWAY
WE PICK UP REMAINS OF THE LIFE WE HAVE LEFT
AND START AGAIN
