Track Name: Man On The TV
Everything was fine in your mixed up world
You didn’t know that you needed to be saved
Now a man on the TV speaks to you
And tells you that you’re Satan’s slave

CHORUS
He says that in your head you dream your life away
You’re trying to escape from reality
Despite all your pleas nothing will ever change
Now you only see in black and white
‘cos colour somehow don’t seem right
Philosophical questions blow your brain

There’s a man on the TV who’ll save your soul
There’s a man on the TV who’ll save your soul

He’s looking through the window to your soul
You know they say that your eyes don’t lie
He says that: “Everyday is gonna be the same
Unless you start to change your ways.”

CHORUS

So you think you know what’s right what’s wrong
You think you know what’s good and bad?
The man on the TV says you’ve got it wrong
But he’ll lead you to the promised land

CHORUS
Track Name: Sunday Morning 10:00 am
Sunday morning 10.00 a.m.
Feeling fragile and I don’t know why
I didn’t drink at all last night
But my head feels like it belongs to someone else

CHORUS
I wish that I could comprehend
What it is I can’t explain
I don’t know what’s going on
But the blood is pounding through my brain
And it’s Sunday morning 10.00 a.m.
Sunday morning 10.00 a.m.

There’s no sanctuary for me
And I’m not convinced of this reality
Dreaming awake that I’m asleep
There’s a vision before my eyes I cannot reach

CHORUS

Now I try to read the words I write
But they make no sense, no sense at all
I suppose that it’s meant to be
This poets words without a reason or rhyme

CHORUS
Track Name: Hide!
We sat and talked about the past; mistakes you’d like to hide
If you could live your life again, the things you wouldn’t do
But those decisions that we take, make us who we are
Don’t worry ‘cos it’s long ago and there’s no need to hide

CHORUS
‘cos self denial is the name of the game and everybody lies
We’ve all done things of which we are ashamed and that we’d like to hide
We’ve all done things that we’d like to hide
We’ve all done things that we’d like to hide

We sat and talked of what’s ahead; the things you’d like to do
Don’t let others bring you down, ‘cos this life is up to you
There’s no use in holding back, be just who you are
Don’t worry ‘cos it’s just a game and there’s no need to hide

CHORUS
Track Name: That's The Truth
It’s taken so long for me to understand
The way I really feel about you
When you’re not here there’s an emptiness inside
I feel my heart is torn in two

CHORUS
I want you, I need you and that’s the truth
My heart beats, just for you and that’s the truth
I’m nothing, without you and that’s the truth
That’s the truth

Now I know it’s late, but I want you here with me
A telephone can’t bridge the miles
I like to feel your arms around me tight
And I miss you more than I can say

CHORUS
Track Name: Do You Do?
CHORUS
Hey do you do all those things that you know you shouldn’t do?
Do you do all those things that your mama told you not to do?
Do you do all those little things you know you shouldn’t do?
Do you do all the things that your mama told you not to do?

You’re gonna go out tonight
With you friends, have a goodtime
No need to worry ‘cos tomorrow is a world away
The music’s getting louder the beat gets to you
Move in a little closer can you feel it too?

CHORUS

It’s getting kinda late I see you hesitating
There’s no need to worry ‘cos tomorrow is a world away
The sirens call is a tempting offer
Move in a little closer can you feel it too?

CHORUS
Track Name: Enough Is Enough
Enough is enough, why can’t they see?
That the gun and the bomb; only bring insanity
Another victim lies dead on the ground
Her only crime, wrong place wrong time

I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name
Does it hurt him inside; does he share our shame?
Where is the truth, where is the right,
when a mother cries, for her child tonight, tonight?

I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name
Does it hurt him inside; does he share our pain?
Where is the truth, where is the right,
when a father cries, for his child tonight, tonight?

Enough is enough, where will it end?
Around a graveside and who will defend,
another victim of the gunman’s hand
one innocent, who hadn’t taken a stand?

I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name
Does it hurt him inside; does he share our pain?
Where is the truth, where is the right,
when a father cries, for his child tonight, tonight?

I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name
Does it hurt him inside; does he share our shame?
Where is the truth, where is the right,
when a mother cries, for her child tonight, tonight?
