Track Name: Take Care
Be careful where you put your hands
Be careful when you make your plans
Be careful where you lay your head
Who knows what hides under the bed
Take care
Take care
Take care
Be careful with the friends you choose
Be careful how you spread your views
Be careful of the true intent
The air is thick with compliments
Take care
Take care
Take care
Track Name: Sedan
When you drive by in your sedan wear something beautiful
If you try you can wear something beautiful
Day investigates the night and night investigates the day
There's no sign of reason no no no
Sugar up the poison 'til the bitterness begins to fade
You won't find me feeding on your potion
When you drive by in your sedan wear something beautiful
If you try you can wear something beautiful
You don't own me
Don't control me
You don't know me
When you drive by in your sedan wear something beautiful
If you try you can wear something beautiful
Show me everything I see is everything you are
And get all my switches to turn on
Giving out your promise with a dollar won't get very far
You can't buy my feelings no no no
When you drive by in your sedan wear something beautiful
If you try you can wear something beautiful
You don't own me
Don't control me
You don't know me
Track Name: Complaints
I'm deluded on this throne
Never thought I'd ever say that
I'm much better on my own
Never ever going to look back
I've got the number on my phone
I got the steamy letters
I've got the promises you broke
Someone said it's all a hoax and I should know better
I was hoping
Shaking in my spider's nest
Praying that I'll never go flat
Suddenly the girl's impressed
What 'you going to make of that?
Medium to medium rare and a new rock anthem
Circulating in the air
Pour me drinks that don't look square
Give me swinging London
I'm in heaven
With a meaning to fly by in a blaze of glory
Send me flowers in my pain
Call me rough 'cos I'm alive with a different story
Come and save me
There's a cure for complaints
If I could just remember where I need to pin the blame
When I'm standing in the rain with my old umbrella
I get soaking
When I take off all my clothes
I look into the mirror for facts
If my energy turns cold
What 'you going to make of that?
da da da da da da da
I look into the mirror for facts
da da da da da da da
What 'you going to make of that?
Track Name: Effect Is Monotony
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
I'm queen of the here and now
I'm handing the titles out
The world is a magazine
My space is the place I dream about it
If opportunity glides into a thermal
Rise
In service we are contained
Inaction has rearranged my doubting
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
Support is the latest craze
Success is a game we play
I'm billing you for my time
While shifting your conscience up high
High to howling
Designers employing the mood
Will stand in the place I stood
Connection for every speed
Effect is monotony I'm counting
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
Everytime I want it
Someone else has got it before me
Effect is monotony I'm counting
Track Name: Violence
Violence
What you are is certain to break my heart
No peace of mind when you're mine oh no
Only hurt only hurt
When a man that struggles to be fair
Faces struggle everywhere
Think what it's doing
Just remember
Violence will only be a breath away
Oh violence is in the air
Violence
Warriors are returning you to my side
No respite for sometime oh no
Only hurt on this earth
But it's while you fumble in the dark
Making double heavy load
Think what you're doing
Just remember
I'm going to be the one you push someday
To violence in the end
Oh violence in the end
Oh violence will be there
Come on
Track Name: A Day Will Come
I'm the urban warrior in your new world order
I'm the uncut diamond on your treasure island
I'm concealing my hand
You and me we always seem to always argue
Argue who's winning
Everyones lost
Arguing nothing is more than we've got
You and me we always seem to always argue
A day will come
A day will come
You're a low high flyer
You're a stained messiah
You're the great pretender and the main offender
There'll be no surrender
You and me we always seem to always argue
Arguing questions
Spinning tales back
Arguing answers
Twisting the facts
You and me we always seem to always argue
A day will come
A day will come
A day will come
A day will come
I'm the contradiction to your science fiction
And the beat I'm tapping is the one hand clapping
Can you hear me laughing?
You and me we always seem to always argue
Arguing corners
No in between
Arguing water won't boil off to steam
You and me we always seem to always argue
I can't see your side
You must be wrong
You can't see my side
It goes on and on
A day will come
A day will come
A day will come
A day will come
Track Name: Emergency
The sun is out today but doesn't shine on me
I've got a lot to learn about the things I see
Couldn't live a lie even if I tried
Here below the memories I scrape up it's clear
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
No illusion just confusion
Howling down the moon
A calm air visits but it always leaves too soon
Even when I'm found feeling safe and sound
Here below the memories I scrape up it's true
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
Call me stupid
Call me anything you like
Pull me through it
Help me make the other side
You can see what I need
I'm under observation every move I make
I can't forget it and it's hard to face each day
If I don't shape up take a closer look
Here below the memories I scrape up it says
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Will you dial me 999
Emergency
Track Name: A Letter To God
A letter to God
To fix it all up
What more can you do?
Your best is not enough
You haven't the stuff
Or the strength to see it through
You get cold in the summertime
You get hot in the wintertime
You get close to the finish line
And then you lose
And then you lose
You can't make these dreams that you have come true
Or you would be somebody
Somebody, somebody
A letter to God
To give you a break
You want to be real
When really you're a fake
You made a mistake
You're run down and you're feeling low
You're cleaned out and you're looking old
Your times over before you know
How could it be?
How could it be?
It flashed by with nothing in between
You dreamed you'd be somebody
Somebody, somebody
Clean living
What are we living for?
So unforgiving
Clean living
What are we living for?
A letter to God
To bring you some luck
You're planning your move
You're sticking in the mud
A letter to God
Track Name: Hope
A light comes on
Something you know
You'll feel in touch when you let go
No clinging on
Hope
You turn to stone
Wish you could fly
You're reaching out when it's inside
You need to learn
Hope there's hope
Everything I could be happy with everything
Everything has to be has to be everything
The day burns up and keeps you 'til late
You've missed so much
No time to waste on things long gone
Hope there's hope
Everything I would be laughing at everything
Everything I would be I would be everything
Hope there's hope
A light comes on
Something you know
You'll feel in touch when you let go
No clinging on
Hope there's hope
Everything has to be happy with everything
Everything has to be has to be everything
Hope there's hope
Track Name: Hello
If you ever tell me we're through
So it goes
I'll get somebody new
If you call me with terrible news
Give me it straight
There's no need to behave like I'll crumble
My will is strong
I'll carry on
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
Always chasing
Never letting up
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
So frustrating
Never get enough
In the morning at quarter to three
Wide awake
I'm worried for the trees
And the weather cares nothing for me
Here in the eye of the storm I'll survive
When the thunder and lightning's gone
I'll carry on
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
Overtaking everything in sight
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
Celebrating late into the night
When the ice clouds roll over the day
Let me dream it didn't end this way
I would rather be lucky than brave
Give me control
Let me follow my nose out of trouble
And if I'm wrong I'll carry on
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
Complicating all our simple charms
Hello
Welcome to your place
This is the human race
Born here naked reaching for the stars
