Track Name: Lions & Bears.
this is a choice I don’t want to make/ yeah, this is out of my league/
something I don’t want to have on my plate/ but I’ve got to come clean/

this is a road I don’t want to go down/ but I see no other way/
you’ve already got me all figured out/ what do you want me to say?/

bear with me/ bear with me/ you’re the only chance I will ever get/
bear with me/ bear with me/ you’re the only sense life will ever have/
bear with me/ bear with me/ you are where it starts and where it ends with me/

I’ve tried your patience/ time after time/ and you are with me still/
I don’t want to run from what I don’t like/ but you know that I will/

I can’t live up to what you expect/ you’ve got to take it from here/
I can’t get my head around the fact/ that it’s not up to me/

I don’t trust myself with this/ after all that went wrong/
if it was not for your grace/ I couldn’t carry on/
I don’t care where this ends up/ this is my finest hour/
if it was not for your grace/ I wouldn’t be here now/
Track Name: Weeds In The Wheat.
we are sheep among wolves/ we’ve settled for survival/
all for the sake of peace/ all for a fake sense of freedom/
we keep our voices down/ we keep our voices down/
we’d rather go unnoticed than keep explaining ourselves/

with truth on our side and peace on our minds/
love is lost along the way/
love is lost along the way/

we've been bought and paid for/ we’ve got our stories straight/
our world is black and white/ we’re preaching to the choir/
we’re strangers in this place/ we don’t participate/
we want to change you but we don’t want to change ourselves/

bind it ‘round your neck!/ write it on your heart!/
wear it on your sleeve!/ take it to the streets!/
Track Name: Radio Uruzgan.
it’s a drop in the ocean/ you hold in cupped hands/
it’s hitting and running/ in spite of the consequence/
it’s a shot in the dark/ but I've got to do my part/
when the smoke has cleared/ let’s see what I’ve achieved/

I want to set you thinking/ I want to carry some weight/
I want to tug at your heartstrings/ I want to make some waves/
it’s the least I can do/ it’s the least I can do/

it’s scratching the surface/ when you have calmed the storm/
if there is a will/ there is a way/ to get your foot in the door/
good intentions won’t win the war/ good intentions won’t win the war/

something’s gotta stick in the back of your mind/
I will kick and I will bite/ I will add fuel to the fire/
Track Name: Someone's Head Is Gonna Roll.
someone’s head is gonna roll/ and it’s not gonna be mine/
someone’s head is gonna roll/ there’s no excuse this time/
someone’s gotta take the fall/ and it’s not gonna be me/
someone’s gotta take the fall/ are there any volunteers?/

we want the profits without the expense/
we want the glory without dirty hands/
we want salvation but not at all costs/
we want forgiveness but not on a cross/

we don’t want to tie ourselves down to anything at all/
we won’t burn our fingers and be held responsible/
someone’s head is gonna roll/ and it’s not gonna be ours/
someone’s head is gonna roll/ who’s volunteering now?/

walk away before you get too involved/ before you get too engaged/
walk away before things get too close/ before things get too complicated/
Track Name: Hands Off.
tell me where do you take over/ and where does that leave me?/
tell me where do you take over/ and where does that leave me?/
in the face of perfection/ nobody stands a chance/
but you have a history/ of using broken down men/

you are in charge/ so take control/
of this body and soul/ this body and this soul/
you are in charge/ whatever you say goes/

tell me when you wash your hands of/ and when I’m on my own/
tell me when you wash your hands of/ and when I’m on my own/
at the end of the day/ nobody makes the cut/
but you have a way with/ the ones who can’t keep up/

what do I reflect of your face/ and how does that make you look?/
what do I reflect of your face/ and how does that make you look?/
Track Name: Margins.
so much for recognition/ you don’t need me for that/
in the sweat of my face/ I’m not getting anywhere/

let’s strip down to the essence/ away with all the rest/
throw me into the deep end/ see what will happen next/

make sure/ make sure/ you’ve still got my back/
make sure/ you’ve got your eyes on me/
come on/ come on/ set my heart on fire/
come on/ and put my world to rights/

so much for entertainment/ we amuse ourselves to death/
we bring nothing to the table/ that you do not possess/

let’s end every discussion/ put your words into my mouth/
I’m singing from the margins/ but I cannot tone it down/

so much for repetition/ you’ve heard it all before/
put my words into action/ let’s not argue anymore/
Track Name: Fight Song.
let’s take it outside and make this go away/
enough is enough/I want to make this go away/

an eye for an eye/ a tooth for a tooth/
a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do/
sooner or later/ it’s gotta come to blows/
you know I’m sorry/ but that won’t make it go away/

this far and no further/ I’m ready when you are/
come on/ let me have it/ and settle this once and for all/

let’s waste no more time/ it’s been thirty-one years/
I don’t want charity/ I want to put it behind me/
yeah/ you know and I know/ I’m fighting a lost fight/
it’s too late for excuses/ I 've got to put it behind me/

this far and no further/ this far is far enough/
I'm ready when you're ready/ I'm ready/ I'm ready
come on let me have it/ let's get it over with/
it's now or it's never/ come on let's settle this/

yeah/ you know and I know/ the victory is yours/
I might win this battle/ but I’m gonna lose the war/
Track Name: Everybody's Got A Train To Catch.
everybody’s got a train to catch/
everybody’s got a train to catch/
are you gonna make it in time?/
are you gonna make it in time?/

this is not permanent/ this is not definite/ we’re only visitors here/
there is no formula/ there is no royal road/ nobody gets an easy ride/

everybody’s got a train to catch/ everybody’s moving on/
everybody’s got a train to catch/ everybody’s moving on/
everybody’s got a train to catch/ you’re already running late/
everybody’s got a train to catch/ you’re already running late/

what’s your excuse?/ what are you coming home to?/
what is it that keeps you going?/
tell me what’s new/ what are you holding onto?/
tell me something I can believe in/
Track Name: The Ropes.
you've got eyes but you don't see/
you've got ears but you don't listen/
you've got your opinion ready/
the moment you enter the room/

you've got it all at your disposal/
you've got it all but you want more/
you've got no idea of what to do with/
all that's been thrown at you/

who's gonna stop you?/ who's gonna stop you?/
who's gonna show you the ropes?/
no one can touch you/ no one can touch you/
you've got a mind of your own/

you let yourself in/ you see yourself out/
it's a matter of time/ you won't be slowed down/
you've fought your way up/ you know your way around/
it's not what you say/ it's how it sounds/

you don't know which way to turn/
you keep every option open/
you afford yourself the luxury/
of not regretting anything/
Track Name: Semantics.
I fill myself with data/ I get up and go to bed with it/
it’s my bread and butter/ I’m eager for the next bit/
am I on a sliding scale? / I cannot get my mind made up/
it’s all equally important/ a train that’s never gonna stop/

there’s no context/ only content/
there’s no purpose/ only fragments/

I owe you an answer/ but I’m as misinformed as you/
I’m full of bits and pieces/ I don’t know how to put to use/
it’s not easy to convince me/ I am my own authority/
if I question everything/ will I find the truth eventually?/
