LONG WALK HOME --------------------------- I don't give a damn what the landlord say We gotta build a place of our own I don't give a damn what the papers say I'm gonna make my way on my own I'm gonna sing with all my heart I'm gonna watch it fall apart I'm gonna tear it up and help to break it down I don't give a damn what the cavemen say We gotta find our way back home A life worth living - I take it day by day And grab the precious moments that I can I won't stop giving - it always comes my way in time We take the long way home But we get there on our own Why'd you give a damn what the landlords say? You gotta build a place of your own Why'd you give a damn what the papers say? You gotta make your way on your own You gotta sing with all your heart You gotta let it fall apart You gotta tear it up and help us break it down Why'd you give a damn what the cavemen say? We all gotta find our way back home Life's worth living - we take it day by day And grab the precious moments when we can We don't stop giving - it always comes our way in time We take the long way home But we get there on our own We take the long way home But we get there on our own I don't give a damn what the landlord say We gotta build a place of our own I don't give a damn what the papers say We gotta find our way on our own We gotta sing with all our heart we gotta let it fall apart We gotta tear it up and help to break it down I don't give a damn what the cavemen say We gotta make our way back home © 2011 MAILMAN / Zeitgeist Production ISRC: GB-8ZZ-11-00017

THE SUN NEVER SETS --------------------------------- The sun never sets in your eyes You hung the rain clouds out to dry While I fell apart watching cynical people go by I might let it happen again But this time I know I’m on the mend This time I know I’ll get by with a little help from my friends Who help me Hold my head high Our love never dies But sometimes it crawls into a cave And hides with the remnants of all the bad memories we save Why do we bring ourselves down? There’s no need to ever wear a frown The cynics will always stay true to the path that they’ve found And we will Hold our heads high And not be scared to try Our love never dies Love will never die The sun never sets in these eyes A bad moon is always on the rise It stalks up the hillsides and looms into everyone skies - but ours Ours is a whole different place I see the questions on your face: “Why would you open yourself to this inhuman race?” Because we can Hold our heads high And not be scared to cry Our love never dies Real love never dies Hold your head high And don’t be scared to try Real love never dies Love will never die The sun never sets in these eyes © 2011 MAILMAN / Zeitgeist Production ISRC: GB-8ZZ-11-00018

When The War Is Won ------------------------------- I can’t believe what I’m seeing This should appal every thinking human being There’s no tuning out of this one The usual bout of killing has begun They say: “Trust in the web that we’ve spun You will be free only when the war is won” It ought to be clear by now There really is no glory or way out There never is - it’s never been in doubt How do you sleep at night? When all of your conscience has gone Do you not need anyone? And when will the madness end? When all of our hope is long gone? You’re murdering everyone I could believe what I’m told I could betray all humanity for black gold I could be king in my mind Imperial, moronic and resigned (x2) How do you sleep at night? Now all of your conscience has gone Do you not love anyone? And when will your madness end? When all of our hope is long gone? You’re shepherding everyone to war Under a guilty cloud Whatever you do to our light Somehow it still lives on It still lives on It still lives on It lives on It lives on It lives on © 2011 MAILMAN / Zeitgeist Production ISRC: GB-8ZZ-11-00019

FEAR OF FOXES ----------------------- There’s a world outside one percentile wide where the wealth resides When the world out there should be ours to share - why do you not care? ‘Cause you see only what they want you to And believe only what they tell you Don’t you know… If you spend your whole life trying to emulate their greed You’ll still just end up dying - so how much do you need? And still you keep on buying every planted seed But you don’t know why There’s an insincere politics of fear in the atmosphere Now the only route for the destitute is an institute Where you do only what they want you to And receive only what they let you Don’t you know… If you spend your whole life trying to emulate their greed You’ll still just end up dying - so how much do you need? And still you keep on buying every planted seed But you don’t know why They try to hide the truth about this ride with primetime wide-screen lies Unholy revelries beamed into your conscience That negate the will to tear these institutions down Don’t you know… Your heart is doused in violence and now it does not bleed A mind that’s sealed by guidance will always be in need ‘Til your withered soul lies silent, aching to be freed But you won’t know why If you spend your whole life trying to emulate their greed You’ll still just end up dying - so how much do you need? And still you keep on buying every planted seed But I just don’t know why There’s a world outside one percentile wide © 2011 MAILMAN / Zeitgeist Production ISRC: GB-8ZZ-11-00020
