Track Name: The End
I’ve got a pain in my head and it won’t go away
It’s gonna leave me for dead
If I don’t take some time to ease the pressure on me

It’s getting harder to see and I can’t run away
It’s getting tougher to read
Oh give me something to breathe, give me something that I can live for
Give me something to see, give me something that I would die for

And I want something
Please give me anything
I’ll take something
Right now the pain is intense
Is this the end?

I’ve got to hide in the dark the light is killing me
I’m curling up in a ball
And I can feel my life is slowly slipping from me

It’s getting harder to breathe the air is leaving me
My head is starting to bleed
Oh give me something I need, give me something that I can live for
Don’t give me guarantees, give me something that I would die for

And I want something
Please give me anything
I’ll take something
Right now the pain is intense
Is this the end?
And I need something
Please just a little bit
Anything
Give what you’ve got to me now
‘Cos this is the end

I’ve got a pain in my head and it won’t go away
It’s gonna leave me for dead
If I don’t take some time to ease the pressure on me

I’ve got to hide in the dark the light is killing me
I’m curling up in a ball
And I can feel my life is slowly slipping from me
Track Name: All Lit Up
Well I don’t really know where I am
And there’s no one around I can ask
Who can tell me what’s happening
And all I can think of is memories tumbling
Down through my brain
Was I wrong, was I right?

And it feels like I’m floating
Right out of my body I open my eyes
And I’m floating right out
Of my body and now I see people around me
But no one can hear me
I don’t know what’s happening

And it’s all lit up, bright like the sunshine
Strange like a lifeline
And I’m free at last
Everything’s all white, white like the angels
Singing on top of the mountain
I’m free at last

Everything’s fading, my world’s getting dark
But I’m strangely relaxed
A familiar sense
Of deja-vu, is that really you?
A million voices
Are singing and shouting

And someone inside me keeps asking me questions
Its me that they’re judging
Its me that’s the judge
And its suddenly dawning on me that I’m dead
And there’s no point in fighting
I know just what’s happening

And it’s all lit up, bright like the sunshine
Strange like a lifeline
And I’m free at last
Everything’s all white, white like the angels
Singing on top of the mountain
I’m free at last
And it’s all lit up bright like the sunshine
And white like an atom bomb
Burning its way through the night time
I’m alive at last
Track Name: I Can Do Anything
“Hear my story”
So the old man told me
Well I thought he was delirious
And there he stands
On a rock of ages
Like the world he made his
And we listened to him when he laughed
And sang to us…

“Oh I, I can do anything
I’m giving it all away
I’m talking to you
I, I could know everything
You can do anything
I’m looking at you”

And we saw the splendour
And we dreamed forever
In a trance without a night or day
And there he danced
With immortal glory
As we heard his story
Transfixed by love he gave to us
As he was singing…

“Oh I, I can do anything
I’m giving it all away
I’m talking to you
I, I could know everything
You can do anything
I’m looking at you”

And then he left amidst a cloud of stardust
Everything went dark around us
All the words he gave us left us
Slipped away, and we’re left singing
La la la la la…
Track Name: Take Me Home
Yes I’d like to believe you
But it makes no sense to me
There’s a world that you live in
It was slowly killing me
So I looked for a way out
On a train that was my own
And I’ve got to believe now
That it’s gonna take me home
Oh take me home

I can sense a commotion
And the dogs have let me know
Face down by the roadside
There’s a beat-up twisted soul
Don’t you know that I’ve got better things
To do with my time
Than scrape junkies off the pavement
I’m just not that way inclined
Oh take me home…

Well I know that you’re gifted
In the art of falling apart
I can tell that you’re feeling
That you may have been miscast
In a life that no one warned you
You’d be tied right to the ground
Grab hold of my hand lets leave
Before we all fall down
Oh take me home…
Track Name: Universality
So much distraction but I’ve got to be strong
There’s satisfaction if you wait it’ll come along

There’s a soul screaming and I don’t want to know
There’s someone dreaming do you mind if I come along?
I won’t make a sound
Pretend that I’m not around
There’s a storm coming now

I’m getting closer with the tides of the sea
Might not be long before we unveil the mystery
The universality
There’s so much to see
A magical destiny

It’s growing clearer as the Earth spins around
The same old souls are trying to bring it all down
Silent but breathing only fragments to see
Glorification of the eternal heresy
Isis in her full glory
The knowledge to see
The universality…
Track Name: Leave Us Behind
The stars have all faded
But the night isn’t dark
The smiles are all painted
This world is a mask

I see the town sparkle
I see the cars shine
The billboards are all taken
The last train won’t arrive

Where’s the real beauty?
What happened to the heart?
And where is the magic?
Where are the gods?

And if that’s where you’re going
You can leave us behind
And if that’s where you’re going
You can leave us behind
Track Name: When The Sea
The water’s rising, time for us to move to higher ground
I hear the music, as the walls of ice come crashing down
Maybe a pole-shift, maybe it’s something underground
Maybe the planets, maybe it’s something more profound

I see the ocean rising over me
I hear the Earth cry out
I’ll be with you at the end of days
As the waves carry us away
As the sea washes us away

Don’t start unpacking, the meltdown hasn’t finished yet
Just a feeling, the best is yet to come – the clock’s been set
Maybe a comet, maybe we made our own end
They never learn, Atlantis all over again

I see the ocean rising over me
I hear the Earth cry out
I’ll be with you at the end of days
As the waves carry us away
As the sea washes us away

The water’s rising, time for us to move to higher ground
Hear the big music, as the walls of ice come crashing down

I see the ocean rising over me
I hear the Earth cry out
I’ll be with you at the end of days
As the waves carry us away
As the sea washes us away
When the dirt gets washed away
Track Name: 333
I know, it ain’t easy
There’s a long way left to go
You said, hold me close then
And we’ll take the same road
Singing la la…

We know, that you loved us
But your time had come to go
We fell, down with sadness
As your soul it left the world
Singing la la…

You called, from the hedgerow
Hurt and lost and left alone
Took us, for your family
When she carried you into home
She was singing la la…

I know, I can’t see you
But I know you’re out there too
There’ll be, someone smiling
Someone looking after you
They’ll be singing la la…
Track Name: Over The Hills & Far Away
Walked my way across Salisbury Plain
My eyes left stinging in the winter rain
Up on the hills, there's Old Sarum
My Heart starts beating to a different drum

I feel the land flowing through my veins
It's a symphony keeping me from pain
There's a part of my soul I left that day
Singing over the hills and far away

I take a rest where the rivers meet
Have a couple of smokes while I rest my feet
Then a short walk up Devizes Road
I see an old friend and lighten the load

I feel the land flowing through my veins
It's a symphony keeping me from pain
There's a part of my soul I left that day
Singing over the hills and far away...

MAde my way through Castle Street
The towering spire watching over me
Where the arrow fell it was destiny
My spirit soars and my heart is free

I feel the land flowing through my veins
It's a symphony keeping me from pain
There's a part of my soul I left that day
Singing over the hills and far away...
Track Name: Searching
I’ve been looking for something
Searching high and searching low
I’ve been trying to find something
Searching high and low

I’ve been looking for something
Searching high and searching low
I’ve been trying to find something
Searching high, searching low

And all of the time it was there
Living inside you and me
Somewhere they knew you could see
Right where you thought it should be…
