Track Name: Oh No Ego
Broken, promises get broken
Words that can't be spoken
Now just fall in line and count your blessings

Sorry, a half arsed apology
Cos a momentary glory
And you're too caught up you sycophant

And watch our dreams just fade away

They don't have answers
And they won't advance us
It's the end, oh no ego
Time's up,
Internal breakdown
We're always ket down
In the end, oh no ego

Golden tales that will unfold men
A timely place to hold them
While you just absorb in
Everything that's rotten

A fantasy forgotten
Cos you'll never ever stop them
While you're too caught up you sycophant

And watch our dreams just fade away
Track Name: Bull Jazzed Up
It's time we craved a little action
We wanna get a little starry-eyed
But your cloud of magic leaves us paralysed

So let's devise another game now
Cos we're not ready for an audience
Of messed up kids that've all but lost the point

We just wanna get a little crazy
But all your friends are getting lazy
So cross the Bridge for something green and hazy
And we'll all go to Jazz and in a frenzy get high

So you wanna taste the A-grade
I bet you've got it all worked out by now
But it's a crazy trip that's gonna turn you upside down

So let's devise another game now
Cos we're not ready for that audience
Of messed up kids that've all but lost the point
Track Name: The Hope Is Rising
Feel the panic in the air
Time's lost quick here
Nothing's right and no-one seems to care
Take me to a better place than here

Broken bodies on the ground
Endless heartbreak
Nothing's right and no-one makes a sound
Take me to a better place than here
Far from here

Can you feel the hope rising
How can we lose with our new king
Where to begin?

Out of sight is out of mind
A total apathy for anything you cannot see
We'll find blind faith is not a game they'll play
Not today
Track Name: Witch Hunt
Taking pops at all the pictures that we see
Another blemish in a glossy magazine
I find it hard to stay alive in this new life
It's not easy keeping clean

A call to arms to kill the hatred in their eyes
A special family that won't stop telling lies
We can't take this fight cos it's not right
Without the media sheen

Injecting your fix today
Blowing the truth away
Like a bullet straight
To your heart

Another exclusive and it all comes crashing down
Who's giving you the right to choose who wears the crown
I find it hard to realise in this new life
That we'll never take control

Of people teaching us with hatred in their eyes
Of special families that won't stop telling lies
I can't tell what's right to take the fight
In this media stream

Injecting your fix today
Blowing the truth away
Like a bullet straight
To your heart
And we can't possibly go
Until some blood has spilt to show
For this WITCH HUNT!

How can you just sit alone and write about it
Tearing into things you've never seen before
Pick the pace up cos it's so much clearer now
That you dictate the things that we are looking for
Track Name: Who's Got Your Back?
Hiding face in numbers
Harmless fun breeds vicious bastards
Turn from confrontation
Safety first there ain't no reasoning

Who's got your back?

Bring a fist down on the old guard
And we pass over control
To the kids that you'll catch laughing
In the face of all they know

Another smart-ars lawyer
Buy a loophole, free a murderer
Why have we all gone soft now
Can't you see conspiracies or protecting your enemies

Who's got your back?
Track Name: Vanguard Army
Fall on your sword
Cos your country won't need you
As long as you're bleeding inside for the fight
As we all fall into their design for the right
To a million dollars that'll get us away far from here
So we strive and we strive

They ain't coming across the water
They ain't falling from the sky
And we all sit back and watch as they die die die

Peace and goodwill is a timely instruction to halt this destruction
Until we believe that we'll climb ourselves away from here
So we strive for that million dollars that brings them to call us to arms
So we fight and we fight

They ain't coming across the water
They ain't falling from the sky
And we all sit back and watch as they die
They ain't coming across the water
They ain't falling from the sky
And we all sit back and watch as they die die die

Fantasy is all we'll ever try to see
Why can't we live that way
Without this price to pay
So little time
We'll carry on like this
And destroy everything
So we can start again
In their time
Track Name: Honeycomb
End game's all we seek
But you drain the love from me
I'll wait for your silent sign
My heart won't leave you behind
Until the end
Where we pretend
To fall in love

You take all you need
Leave me incomplete
I wait for your silent sign
My heart won't leave you behind
Until the end
Where we pretend
To fall in love

Take me, honeycomb
Forget all we've known
We've waited waited for something new
But my heart can't forget you
Cos in the end
We'll depend
On falling in love
Track Name: Their Religion
Investing all savings in the man with the beard in the sky
Cos we’re protecting our place in paradise
No it can’t be denied

But I see that’s all been a bluff
Cos we’ve never felt love from up above
We shouldn’t be scared by the things that they tell us
Cos they all live in sin

Too quick to contradict
Uncertainty is a plague for us all
But I can’t accept that laws we set in stone back then
Will prevent our downfall

Cos I see that’s all been a bluff
For we’ve never felt love from up above
We shouldn’t be scared by the things that they tell us
Cos they all live in sin

Faith, who are you trying to save
Too much time for hate

Cos I see that’s all been a bluff
Cos we’ve never felt love from up above
We shouldn’t be scared by the things that they tell us
Cos they all live in sin
In their religion
Track Name: The Blame
You’re drifting in and out of consciousness
I’m acting out the same routine
Yet it’s not your fault when you’re not listening to me

Another fix, another contract
You said you had it form the start
Yet it’s not your fault
When the whole thing falls apart

Like a child you think you’ve heard it all before
But not this time cos I can’t take it anymore

Ocean, I’d like to drop you out into the sea
And let you bleed all the fury inside me
Cos there ain’t no end to this business
We’ll be taking care of all you have done
Always the same and it’s time you took the blame

You’re bringing pain where they should be none
It’s like you want to watch us grieve
But it’s not your fault and you’ll never ever leave

Just one more fix, just one more contract
It’s clear you faked it form the start
Yet it’s not your fault
As the whole thing falls apart
Track Name: A Thousand Myths
Your reflex is your defence
And that’s what makes you suffer
Your reasons fall to pieces
Don’t try to steal our thunder

Concentrating a fragile mind on operating
Brings no fear

Don’t rush in with a foolish heart
Play the game, Scheherazade
You can live a thousand myths
No one wants to disappear

Your defence is your weakness
And that’s what makes us stronger
Don’t try to pull us under
Cos everyday will get a little bit harder
Track Name: F.Y.I.
Tools down fight the crown
No regard for what goes down
Its too late, welfare state
A mixed up plate of what we’re really striving for
I’d like to help out but it’s such a bore
And we’d rather stay in bed all morning

Brain dead, empty head
Can’t believe the things you said
Were so wrong, it’s ok
Whatever it takes for you to lay your head at night
A thousand unions won't give up the fight
But what are they really fighting for?

We can frighten our hearts to something new
They're not against you
Stand tall, don't stop asking
Cos we can't guess in order to be the best

Press leaks, fun time freaks
A wealth of knowledge at your fingertips
He's your guy, FYI
It's not so hard to purchase him for our side
The perfect system turned to overdrive
So what are we really fighting for?
