Track Name: Family Familiar
I'll be sitting in a pear shaped land mine, twisted trees blowing in my mind,
As I exhale, my face turns pale, green spiders begin to weave their web a step closer.
Chose my inner lanterns for times unknown, thrown together are these words,
Like turds from ma batty, got diarrhea but I'll be the Godzilla crashing down.

Chorus
Family familiar
Never forget ya
Family familiar
Never forget ya, never forget
Family familiar
Never forget ya
Family familiar
Never forget ya, never forget ya yayayaya


When I am so grey and so old, please bury me alone in a desert so cold,
I don't know how to run or to hide, I don't know how to swallow my pride.
When I am so grey and so old, please bury me alone in a desert so cold,
I don't know how to run or to hide, I don't know how to swallow my my my my

Chorus

Truth ‘aint alive, its dead, its dead, its dead.
Track Name: Soldier
Melodies broke,
Melodies weep,
Melodies shatter,
No speak, the silence is haunting.
All the nights,
All their dreams,
Exposed disposed of,
They push on seek on march on.

Chorus
If you don't want to be a soldier say Right on (right on)
If you don't want to be a soldier say Right on (right on)

The spectacle, its hectic, didn't expect this,
All around TV screens boomin’ out the same message.
Be the best, be the best be the best yes fuck all the rest,
Can you here them orders, order.
Track Name: Star In My Sky
My Mama used to tell me, I must cherish the ones who care,
The ones who go through hell fire to be there.
When the day has come to an end, I realise that you are my one true friend,
Yes I respect you, respect you where respect is due, to the highest.

Chorus
You, shall become a star in my sky,
You don't have to wonder why, you don't have to question why.
You, have become a star in my sky,
You don't have to wonder why, you don't have to question why, no no no no.

No complication, no, in this here situation,
Your honesty keeps the road so clear, all roads lead to you.
Pure dedication, yeah, in this here situation,
Yes I respect you, respect you where respect is due, to the highest.

You shall become a star

No complication, no
No complication, no
No complication, no
No complication, no, no
No
Track Name: Wandering
You will never know, to leave yourself alone, 'cause you just need that time.

You will never know, where your feelings flow, 'cause you just need that time.

I will understand, and I will raise my hands, they'll take me where they lead.

You could never know, 'cause you just need to show, you're man enough to bleed.

Chorus
And I am a wandering, a wandering,
And you are a wandering, a wandering.
And I am a wandering, a wandering
Yes you are a wandering, a wandering, yeah.

What do you want to try to make this work? 'Cause yesterday has gone, and so has everyone.

Do you expect me to carry your soul? Your fortune has been told, your story has been sold.

Why must I try to understand?
I said why must I try to understand?

Yes I am a wandering, a wandering,
And you are a wandering, a wandering.
And I am a wandering, a wandering,
Yes you are a wandering, a wandering.
And I am a wandering, a wandering,
Yes you are a wandering, a wandering.
And I am a wandering, a wandering,
Yes you are a wandering, a wandering.

Why must we all try to, why must we all try to
Why, why
Why must we all try to, why must we all try
Why must we try, why, yeah

I was just wandering...
Track Name: Try Again
You lose out again, didn't know that’s your destiny.
You reach out again, didn't know that’s the way it is.

Sisters while your out on the town,
Don't forget your sisters they’re not even allowed out.
While were busy chasin’ men women and careers,
Then get stomped trying to express her fears.
If you be alone G, you would be delighted to see,
That she decides her own fate.

To realise again, that your freedom is fickle as it seems.
To reach deep and look its so raw inside.

Tell my why you're crying, what's wrong?
When your sisters they are dying, that's wrong, wrong.
Wipe your tears away, you get to live another day.
Here's what I say to you,
You will know, say you'll know, you'll know just what to do, yeah.

You can try you can try you can try again…
Track Name: Vipers
When the vipers come better be strong in your soul son,
Its not your trouble.

Push them away
(take em take em)
Send them away
(take em take em)
Dash them away
(take em take em)
Take them away
(take em take em)
Track Name: Surrender (Dubplate Vocal)
Sometimes I feel so weak, that there's no choice left but to return to this world.

Tonight begins in the sky, for you, yes you and I.

Sometimes I bow to the moon, curtains close, no-one knows it's too soon, but you.


I'm known to try so hard, so far those things fall, how they fall.

Chorus
Surrender, sweet surrender, come unto me.
Surrender, sweet sweet surrender, I need to feel free.

As my eyes, close to find,
With this sleep no time,
These are mysterious days to come.

And if we follow it, let it lead,
Fly above city streets,
We are the dreamers of a dream.

Then we walk unawares and we light up the way to see what we can find.

We get up get up get up to believe in, you and I will wonder for hours.

Get up get up get up to believe in, we will scale heights make us feel no fear.
Track Name: Gold Getter (Album Version)
Try to move the sea, he's a gold getter,
Pushing all his greed, he's a gold getter,
Doesn't care for loving, he's a gold getter,
He's got money on his mind, knows what he'll find.
Push them aside, you gold getter,
See friends don't matter, he's a gold getter,
Pushin' and a shovin', he's a gold getter,
He's got money on his mind, knows what he'll find.
He knows what he'll find.

Try to move the sea, he's a gold getter,
Pushing all his greed, he's a gold getter,
Doesn't care for loving, he's a gold getter,
He's got money on his mind, knows what he'll find.
Push them aside, you gold getter,
Family don't matter, he's a gold getter,
Pushin’ and a shovin’, he's a gold getter,
He's got money on his mind.

Chorus
I believe, I believe we can,
I believe we are earth's children.
I believe, I believe we can,
I believe we are earth's children.
Track Name: B.A.S.I.C.
B is the bass you know
A is the art you show
S is the sex you grow
I is the instinct blow
C it is the constant
F as the feeling grows
L as the light that’s stowed
O as the opening door, slip through all is simple, no no need for more.

Chorus
You've got the basic flo,
No need to search or scramble, this is instinctual strong in our bones.
You've got the basic notes, to keep a tune afloat,
Through repetition the feeling grows, and it grows, and it grows.
(Yeah man it grows)

B is the bass you know
A is the art you show
S is the sex you grow
I is the instinct blow
C it is the constant
F as the feeling grows
L as the light that’s stowed
O as the opening door, slip through all is simple, no no need for more

Chorus

Make you feel alive so you be rolling deep,
Feet on the ground no there no need to speak,
Feel in your body so your taken away,
Never mind the month, never mind the day.
When you shout aloud you'll be tracing,
When you shout aloud you'll be tracing,
When you shout aloud you'll be chasing the beat,
Keeping you strong, helping you breathe.
Track Name: Helicopter
You better leave or your time has gone,
Your mind is weak and your eyes are worn,
They lay you down and they push you under,
Twist you round yes they push you under.
Try to rationalise and see,
But they're strong they won't let you be,
Darkness falls with each step you take,
Your on the edge yes you might just break.

Your eyes are blown and your mind is too,
They seek too deep yes they’re after you,
Make you doubt what is right and fine,
Now run away don't you fuss nor fight it,
Run away don't you fuss nor fight it,
Run away, run away, run away.

May your demons take flight not tie,
State your reasons then let them slide,
Make your moves with conviction trust,
Your people love you and that’s enough.
Shadow voices will leave you be,
You switch the lights they disappear,
Push on through to the other side,
Lay you down sing a lullaby.

Your eyes are blown and your mind is too,
You seek too deep they’re not after you,
So don’t doubt what is right and fine,
Don’t run away don't you fuss nor fight it,
Run away don't you fuss nor fight it,
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away.

Surely there is nothing to fear.
Surely there is nothing to run from.
Situation is clear.
