Track Name: Sandcastles
All of your Sandcastles drifting away
Profits once made, drifting away
Dreams of your empire turning to rust
Financial gains crumble to dust

Ch: We are worth more than anything gold
Stories are written and told
Til you find that your heart’s been on hold
And all that you’d wanted is sold
You are more than your pile of things
With the soul of a bird on its wing
I’ll write it for you if you’ll sing
Because life is a beautiful thing

The parts of the puzzle are making no sense
We’re travelling time but in future tense
Longing for lessons that we left behind
Losing our way but finding our minds

Ch: We are worth more than anything gold
Stories are written and told
Til you find that your heart’s been on hold
And all that you’d wanted is sold
You are more than your pile of things
With the soul of a bird on its wing
I’ll write it for you if you’ll sing
We can light up the spark that’s within
Because life is a beautiful thing
Track Name: Armageddon (outta here)
If you think that the world is going to end
you better enjoy it my friend, better enjoy it my friend

If you think that time is running out is there anything you'd like to shout
is there anything you like to shout ?

We're all here now but we can't be sure it wont all be gone tomorrow

There's a traffic jam in the overtaking lane
while the people sailing solitary are all told they are insane.

There's a train of thought that it's running off the tracks
once we realise will we even want it back?

cause we're all here now but we can't be sure where we're gonna want to go tomorrow

I'll salute the sun each morning, i'll howl at the moon
I'll go to a place of worship, celebrate a tune
is there anything you'd like to do *?

cause we're all here now but we cant be sure where we're gonna have to go tomorrow
(who we're gonna have to meet tomorrow)
Track Name: Drummer Boy
Well I could get to know you find out what makes you tick
But all I really wanna do is get my hands on your drumsticks
And my foot upon your kick
Yes, it’s true Drummer Boy I got my eye on you

Well by you got the rhythm like everybody said
With your sense of time baby I know you must be good
With your head
But I just wanna get you into my band
Yes, it’s true Drummer Boy I got my eye on you

Well we could get to talking and with a bit of luck
You’d take me down to the band room and you’d teach me
How to play on your drums
All I wanna do is play on your drums
Yes, it’s true Drummer Boy I got my eye on you
Boy you got me going I’m ticking like a clock
If I got to know you would you show me
Your Drummer Boy rock chops
Tick tock Tick tock Tick tock
Yes, it’s true Drummer Boy I got my eye on you

Yes, it’s true Drummer Boy I wanna play you
Yes it’s true I got to snare me a Drummer Boy like you
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
As time ticks on I dont know what to do
The plot has thickened on the evening news tonight
We get distractions with each opened door
The smoke screen fades the sun has set some more

But I want to know where the sun shines all the time
And we can make the music in our minds
Where no one knows your name but they still smile and say
Just come with me ill take you for a while

Remove the smokescreen you might see the door are you too scared to step inside or do you want more?
Youve got your big screen and your nine to five
The market crashed and maybe a couple of kids died

I dont want to buy the paper its just gonna be bad news
I dont want to make a statement if I can not clean my room
I dont want to see a picture if a lie obstructs the view
But do I want to know the truth
Close your eyes its easier that way
Track Name: The Keeper
High above the water almost in the clouds
When the day was over when the stars came out
When the light had faded and the gate had closed
When our hearts were open and our lives were our own

And the walls were built a thousand years ago
But we created history of our own

I used to be the keeper I used to hold the key
I used to share the secrets of all life’s mysteries
The ocean was our playground beneath the endless sky
The night was there for only us and we could almost fly

And the walls were built a thousand years ago
But we created history of our own
We were the kings and queens that ruled the night
But now memories all fade to black and white

And all the love and all the smiles
The laughter that remains inside
The castle that had once defined
The man I used to be
And 20 years have come and gone
And now the sun is setting on
The bay that still remains my home

High above the water almost in the clouds
I sit and think over all the times we had
When I was the keeper when we ruled the night
And it’s joy that fills my soul for this extraordinary life
Track Name: People of Passion
have i become an observer was i once an observation
am i now into philosophy was i once into creation
i see minds grow ever complex all across the nations
minds full of un-shatter-able notions
minds full of limitations

so we glide

are we looking for excuses where we used to look for reasons
everybody's fighting wars that no-one still believes in

i've seen minds so enthused they could think themselves away
lap around the universe, still not know what so say


so we glide

i want to walk with the people of passion
will they have me? am i one
i want to walk with the people of passion

can i still land on my feet, where i once sat on my ass
were we looking to the future with conditions from the past

i've seen minds so disillusioned by the options on the plate
they stumble round for something else
and into something great

so we glide



extra lyrics ..

are we digging up our treasures so we can buy more things
cashing in our history, for what the future brings
i've seen families with no option but to send their dads away
when he comes back home again, what's he got to say?

are we turning to excuses where we used to look for reasons
sending children off to wars that no-one believes in

i've seen minds so confronted by the stories coming through
they shutdown in the corner
crying out for truth (proof)
Track Name: My Fault
From your side I can almost see how you feel
I’m to blame for all this mess
And from your side anger has become a flame
Burning on your past regrets

But something’s a little confusing to me
And something’s a little strange
Something’s been making me question you
And how much you seem to have changed

I really wanted to put my belief in you
But you’ve turned around now and put words in my mouth
I never intended to take it away from you
But you put the blame on me and I simply fail to see how

This is my fault now, this is my fault now
How is it my fault now, is it my fault now

From my side I have been victimised
You’ve been creating lies
So won’t you tell me why
I should apologise…

Cause I have been trying to not think the worst of you
But your reality is so far removed from me
And you seem determined to make it me against you
So now I’m the enemy yet still I fail to see how

This is my fault now, this is my fault now
How is it my fault now, is it my fault now
Track Name: Round em up
Round em up, Round em up, Round em up and throw them all away
Round up all these seeds that take our liberties we’ll stand up and we’ll say
You may have the money but we still have a say
We will take your patent crops and shine the light of day

Trust in truth we sure can’t trust in you
Mr Politician when your children are all sick and taken ill from poison food
Then will you trust in truth acknowledging the truth
Mr Politician when did it become your vision to contaminate this state
Round em up and make them pay

Round em up, Round em up, Round em up it’s time they moved along
Round em up we’ll show them we have power with conviction and a song
You can keep your money we still have a say
We don’t want your profit crops we don’t want your sprays

Trust in truth we sure can’t trust in you
Mr Politician when your children are all sick and taken ill from poison food
Then will you trust in truth acknowledging the truth
Mr Politician when did it become your mission to contaminate this state
Round em up and make them pay

Make them pay
Tell me Mr Redman, was it always your intention to contaminate this state
Round em up and make them pay
Track Name: Don't Talk to Me
How much longer will we silently wander
How much longer till it all goes under
How much longer will it take till we see
How much longer till we choke on the stories that they

Feed to me, dont talk to me
the day to day hypocrisy
Talk to me, no dont talk to me but
God Forbid we end this movie.

How much longer will there be this cover
How much longer till we need another war
How much harder is it not to believe
How much anger do you suffer when between the lines you

Read to me, dont talk to me
the day to day hypocrisy
Talk to me, dont talk to me
God forbid we'd end this movie

Fairy tales and nursery rhymes
heroic versions of horrific crimes
a celebration for all to see
how could this possible be
all lunatics in the making, thats the story that we hear
while the cut and paste collection is there to Orchestrate our

Fear for me, dont talk to me
the day to day hypocrisy
Talk to me, dont talk to me but
God forbid we'd end this movie.

Another childless mother, another broken shelter
but still more ignorant anger
does anybody wonder?
Track Name: 6 Bar Jail
Though I might not stand beside you you’re gonna know where I stand
If I’m reaching out to touch you, you can safely take my hand
Of all the things that I could say to you I’d say them to your face
But you think you’ve got me in my place
Stacking up delusions will they ever tumble down
Clinging to the anger of the whisper of a truth unfound
So I’m sleeping somewhere silently
Someone’s slinging mud again
Never even opened my mouth to say a word about it all
Before I’m asked to leave again
Well you can wallow in your squalor just to throw it all my way
But I’m sure we can find a better place to play
Staking up defences one bullet at a time
Looking for distractions from those actions that were never mine
They were yours not mine
I’ll be heading for the six bar jail but who’s doing time?
Track Name: Placating
You'll never know who you is
so who are you trying to be
your energy is refocused on realities second hand
I'll write it into next week's script so you might understand

I don't mind watching my life go by
but I wont watch yours
You're pacified, externally fine, but the stimuli is sending you blind
Placating your mind

Dirty is clean, sour is sweet
if enough of us believe
if we put our souls to use
what might be achieved once we see
that 'cool is the enemy'

I don't mind watching my life go by
but I wont watch yours
You're pacified, externally fine, but the stimuli is sending you blind
Placating your mind

Fill the void, enclose the space,
empty equals bad, bad, disgrace
full of other's nothings, just buy bigger till you're proud
follow me I know you will,
because you cant see your crown

Now energy is running, it's running out the door
fewer and fewer are sharing more and more and more and more
full of other's nothings, just buy bigger till you're proud
follow me I know you will,
because you cant see your crown
Track Name: Empty Room
I’m alone in an empty room
Waiting alone in an empty room
All alone in an empty room
Waiting for you to take me home

I got no one but you
I don’t want no one but you
I can love no one but you
So when are you gonna take me home

I got nothing in the world but the slowly passing time
And the stains upon my lips
From a box of cheap red wine
But you are like a golden ray
Of sweet sunshine
And I sink into darkness without you by my side

I’m alone in an empty room
Waiting alone in an empty room
All alone in an empty room
Waiting for you to take me home

All the things that we would do
Alll of the words I would say to you
You mean the world to me how can I be
The one that you take home

I’m alone in an empty room
Waiting alone in an empty room
All alone in an empty room
Waiting for you to take me home
