Track Name: Long Walk Home
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

Track Name: The Sun Never Sets
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

Track Name: When The War Is Won
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

Track Name: Fear Of Foxes
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
