Track Name: Ghosts
I hear ghosts in the woodwork, I hear ghosts in the dark,
They talk to me, of the changing seasons
They run and they play and they dance and they laugh...
I see faces in the stone work, features that I know somehow
Crumbling in the acid rain,
A picture for the future the past to the here and now...a ghost of a smile.

These walls have memories, engrained like dust through the years
In the eaves and the ceilings, in the wear on the treads of the stairs
And not just the sorrow, not just the pain...they echo of sunshine, puddles and rain
And not just of children forgotten and grown...they echo of love and the wild oats that were sown.
I walk with strangers ,I’ve come to know
And given time, the story grows
Their stories endless, the fabric of this place
And maybe someday you’ll hear a voice and see the shadow of my face
The ghost of a smile...
Track Name: Liven Your Mind Part 2
STAY HERE, I MUST STAY HERE
EVEN WHEN I’M GONE DEAR,
PART OF ME WILL LIVE ON HERE...

NO FEAR, THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR MY DEAR
CAN YOU FEEL ME SO CLOSE HERE
CAN YOU FEEL ME INSIDE DEAR

CAN YOU SEE ME, FLYING IN A CLOUDLESS SKY,
AT THE WINDOW OF A TRAIN
AS IT GOES SPEEDING BY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? IN THE SONGBIRD’S CRY
CATCH ME ON THE WIND
THERE WILL BE NO TEARFUL GOODBYES.
YOU CAN’T CHANGE THIS DEAR!
LEAST NOT IN THIS LIFETIME...
SO LET ME GO DEAR
AND LET ME LIVEN YOUR MIND.
LET ME LIVEN YOUR MIND (rpt)
LET ME

WHAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE, YOUVE GOTTA TO LET GO!
LET THE MEMORIES GROW
CATCH ME ON THE WIND (RPT)
Track Name: Warcry
He’s on the floor, dont know how he got there,
but I know that in time he’ll be fine and ready to fight again
Telephone rings as you leave
Another message from me
Time after time you wonder why
your life is on repeat
Superman why did you find me, just to laugh at my disgrace
Im chanting this mantra, over and over, inside my head.

CHORUS
I wont go down gently, I wont go down gently, I wont go down gently, No....(rpt)

You never talk about yourself, In the first person
you never talk about yourself anymore
why don’t you scream
let it out, let it in,
your broken and hurting and needing a fix
and a brand new dream
why dont you cry, why don’t you cry...my war cry. (Rpt_

CHORUS

You tried a little bit, you tried a little, you tried a little bit, you died a little bit...(rpt)

SOLO

And I wont be kept down
its like your gunpowder got damp and
I wont be kept down
my war-cry will get louder louder...
I wont go down gently.

CHORUS

You tried a little bit, you tried a little, you tried a little bit, you died a little bit...(rpt)

I pick myself up, I dust myself down, ready for the next round!

Track Name: Morning After
Eyes across a room, lightning sparks around them
Conversation lights the fire in her eyes
No one else can see this fireworks party
Only you and I have tickets to this show...Hey Yeah!

The planets align, angels cast from heaven
They know Not where they’ll land, who’ll catch them when they fall
Take each other’s hand, laugh into the evening
Dance into the night, dance into the light.

Sometimes you get what you need, but don’t know that you need it
Sometimes you get what you want and decide you want more
What you’ve been looking for finds you, comes knocking at your door
And when you open your eyes, it’s the morning after the night before

Playing your hand in the throes of a last dance
She’s playing with your mind, she’s playing for time
Living for the now, thriving on the danger
You play the perfect fool, she plays your perfect stranger

Sometimes you get what you need, but don’t know that you need it
Sometimes you get what you want and decide you want more
What you’ve been looking for finds you, comes knocking at your door
And when you open your eyes, it’s the morning after the night before

No one gets hurt if you build the wall, you can’t end what you never begin
She hits you like a wrecking ball, swinging out of control...
To breach your defences as your walls come tumbling in
So open your eyes.
(Steve words-)
I want to know the reason why, you dont see me anymore?
and I CRY....
And I climb the wall...I crawl.... to your door,
and it bleeds my heart....pushes me into a tight space
I just dont understand it...

& as you open your eyes
you cant see the truth of the movement
and as yopu open your eyes, youll never live
were looking for yopu,
were out there looking for you, were out there looking for you
What you gonna do??

Never it keep down...all in time
pay the price...never it keep it down, pay the crime
tears, tears, seperate, I remain, I remain, I remain..
Track Name: That Smile
Make time, alright?
Main line, my life,
Fake time, your time. Hold on.
Where do we go from here? Stepping up a gear,
When the pressure tears,
pressure tears us apart.

I hit it head on, I hit it head on, I head it head on...Hold On.
Your not gonna like this....

That smile behind the universe,
It could be a blessing, it could be a curse.
That smile , that you see everyday,
Pushing lips to eternity
I don’t believe myself, but i know theres something out there,
Its not written in a book, something you mistook for the truth
THE TRUTH?

Make time, alright?
Main line, my life,
Fake time, your time. Hold on.
Where do we go from here? Stepping up a gear,
When the pressure flares,
pressure tears.....

That smile behind the universe,
It could be a blessing, it could be a curse.
That smile , that you see everyday,
Pushing lips to eternity
I don’t believe myself, but i know theres something out there,
Its not written in a book, something you mistook for the truth
THE TRUTH?
Track Name: Forever A Picture
Hope, flexes its muscles again,
Rain falls down on the graves,
Fragile, smashed to smithereens,
Light is nothing but ruptrued darkness,
pressure on the eyelids.

Desperation is visible in their faces
love is risible , with no traces (their captors are cruel)
The time they’ve spent in each others arms,
the last they’ll know,
Before the bulldozers, piles of corpses, huddled on the ground.
Hurting, hurting children now,
Running running from the sound, the sound

Enemy upon the Horizon (rpt)

& the hurt is where the heart is, at a certain point in time,
Hope is when you see the mistakes and realise
Screaming, falling, huddled on the ground,
Screaming, falling, huddled on the ground,

Enemies with salaries, appropriate your mind,
and the memory wont mind, and then the memory wont mind,
and then the memory rewinds.
The little white lies, the lies will keep you warmer than the Holy Ghost.

Screaming, falling, huddled on the ground (x6)

Accapella end
“They scream a little louder, when we do it right,
They scream a little louder, when they’re in out sights
They scream a little louder, scream a little louder, scream a little louder when we say goodnight.” Steve Simms.
Track Name: Early Hours
Woke up in the darkness, wind across the rooftops
Breathing in the silence...the only sound was you
I.... was in a good place
Oh Such a good place that I drifted to
In the early hours...In the early hours....In the early hours
In the early hours

Spoken section:
“Dad what are those stars up there” (Alfie Simms)
“Thats Aries...sign of the Ram”. (Steve Simms)
“Whats my star sign?” (Alfie Simms)
“Whatever you wanna be!” (Steve Simms)

Woke up in the darkness, wind across the rooftops
Gazing up at Orion in a night too cold for snow
All my big deals seem so little to me
When you see the vastness that we’re living underneath
In the early hours...In the early hours....In the early hours
In the early hours

The colours of autumn are the colours of my soul
I turn my back to the wind and fasten my coat against the cold
Shuffling through the issues that I’m dealing with
And getting them gone...getting them gone as I’m growing old
Growing into the skin that I’m living in
The space and the time and the mood I’m living in
Growing into the skin that I’m living in
The space and the time and the mood I’m living in

The colours of Autumn are the colours of my soul
Laying down amber on
And the senses to overload....In The Early Hours!
Track Name: Liven Your Mind Part 1
I am Holiness, I am atheist
I am all the things that you believe in,
when you speak to me, when you think you feel forever, forever.
When you touch that space, and when you touch my face and I,
Liven your mind.
I will come alive, in the darkest night, around me swathed in stars and magic
lovers find, say goodbye.

Chorus
Love is going away
but I wanted to thank you anyway. (rpt)
Thankyou, thankyou.

I am angriness, I am happiness,
I would find a way to make us work (be less of a jerk and you’ll see)
but you cant be chased, I guess I fell from grace
its not enough to love you, its not enough to care
change me, you wanna change me,
but i cant change dear, cos i wont be there.

Chorus

change me, you wanna change me,
but i cant change dear, cos i wont be there.

Chorus
Track Name: I Dream In Mirrors
“Mirror mirror on the wall Google me a tall story....”
I was born so peculiar
I’ve played the games but not to win
I’ve heard it all, enough! You dogs!
You don’t understand....the Masterplan!

Up above the rooftops rising,
No rainbows like the Television screens,
I close my eyes and see the route displayed for me....the symmetry!

I close my eyes, I dream in mirrors,
reflections of the man i’ll never be.
I close my eyes and see myself
the way I want you to see!....yeah!

(Quiet Chorus)
LET THE DREAMERS DREAM (x3)
THEIR DAYS AWAY!....(its pleasure).

I’ve done it all, I’ve been and loved you,
I am the one to be endured,
to be misunderstood, as Openheimers dream
(*spoken)
“Now I am become death, destroyer of worlds!” (Openheimer / Bagavita)

I close my eyes I dream in mirrors
I’m soon to change, my time to be,
I’ve got the itch, inside, to soothe, I soon will be....(... to victory!)
(Chorus)
LET THE DREAMERS DREAM (x3)
THEIR DAYS AWAY!....(its pleasure).
(*spoken)
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest,
I do not judge the universe....However it judges me!” (based on a quote by the Dalai Lama)
Solo
(Chorus)
LET THE DREAMERS DREAM (x3)
THEIR DAYS AWAY!....(its pleasure).
