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

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

Hide! 03:44
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

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

Do You Do? 04:42
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

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?
