Track Name: Jericho
You can have rings on all your fingers
Angel by your side
A castle on a hill
Won't keep you satisfied

You can have a kingdom
Sit up on your throne
All you thought you wanted
Still you'd be alone

Yeah
The devils that we know
They leave them scars upon your soul
You know that I
I would have them
Fall down to their knees
May they fall like Jericho
Oh may they fall like Jericho

Father father told us
Sinner on your knees
Never get to heaven
Practice what you preach
He takes all their confession
Tells them pray for help
Not even hail Mary's
To save him from himself

Yeah
The devils that we know
They leave them scars upon your soul
You know that I
I would have them
Fall down to their knees
May they fall like Jericho
Oh may they fall like Jericho

Yeah
The devils that we know
They leave them scars upon your soul
You know that I
I would have them
Fall down to their knees
May they fall like Jericho
Oh may they fall like Jericho

Give us back our freedom
Scattered blood and reason
Like a baby teething
Woah you need a healing
Track Name: Come On
Her hair is black as crow
her lips her soul
are running through my veins
just like a rush of blood
I knew I could
the thought of it remains

Come on come on cos I want to feel it
Come on come on she's almost believing
it's been too long and I cannot behave

Her feet they made no din
her very skin
the field is where I lay
her eyes are rolling back
her nape her neck
and I look round amazed

Come on come on cos I want to feel it
Come on come on she's almost believing
it's been too long and I cannot behave
Track Name: Angel
She looks so good
In all her trappings
She knows what she wants
What is she getting

Silently sad
She'll not admit it
She says she's so bad
She'll have to bring it

She wants it so bad
She wants to make it
She's from a small town
Can she escape it

Angel cries into her pillow
She's making her Mama sad
Ah Life is a hard act to follow
And she's driving all of us mad

She straps on her shield
She sharpens her lashes
But on the inside
She takes a beating

I have to say
Let someone love you
Live for today
Not for tomorrow

Angel cries into her pillow
She's making her Mama sad
Ah Life is a hard act to follow
And she's driving all of us mad

(She says)
I'm so full of doubt
They'll all find me out
What've I got to be
To make a name for me

Here me the bull
China shop crashing
Because I care
She could do anything

You've got one life
Don't let it pass you
You want it all
It could mean nothing
Angel cries into her pillow
She's making her Mama sad
Ah Life is a hard act to follow
Now your life is a hard act to follow
Now your life is a hard act to follow
And your driving yourself mad
Track Name: Johnny's Alright
Johnny fixes his hair
Like there is no gravity
In a mirror he flashes a stare
He sees what he wants to see

Well he's got I don't care
Written all over his face
Just a rabbit in a spotlight
He's popping up all over the place

He's got no money
Isn't it funny
That he can stay out all night
His face shaking
From all he's taking
But Johnny's alright

Well now he's getting all tanked up
And he's itching for a fight
His only way to communicate
And it's getting him through the night

Well now he's strutting down the street
He can't feel any fear
In fact he doesn't feel anything
And you know it's going to end in tears

He's got no money
Isn't it funny
That he can stay out all night
His face shaking
From all he's taking
But Johnny's alright

Johnny's alright
Johnny's alright

He's got no money
Isn't it funny
That he can stay out all night
His face shaking
From all he's taking
But Johnny's alright

Johnny's alright
Johnny's alright
Track Name: Weeping World
If you want to know
Well who is there to tell you so
The rules that we all know are all broken
The world is on it's knees
All begging will you help me please
Time is passed but heads all in the sand
What have we done to you
What will become of us Weeping World
Who is wrong or right
Fighting for your life Weeping World
Lately we have cried
And all around I see us die
One way streets there is only the end
It's borrowed time we buy
But mostly we just bide our time
Eternity is written off with ghosts
Now it sows a bitter seed
What have we done to you
What will become of us Weeping World
Who is wrong or right
Fighting for your life Weeping World
Oh well how can it be
You're giving all you can
You should be relieved
All apologies
Coz what we've done
Is going to have to be redeemed
So of you wanna know
the table's set
Where will you go
Will you still sit
When you've had your fill
Tired and worn but still
The world could take a bitter pill
But who'd you trust that wouldn't steal your soul.
What have we done to you
What will become of us Weeping World
Who is wrong or right
Is it worth the fight Weeping World
Oh well how can it be
You're giving all you can
You should be relieved
All apologies
Coz what we've done
Is going to have to be redeemed
What have we done to you...Weeping World x 4
Track Name: Another Day
When a troubled time
Is playing on your mind
It's hard to decide
Harder to be wise

When you can't face the day
People in your way
Step back take a breath
Let it fall away

Don't waste your time
It's 4 in the morning
You will always find a way
Another day

Some will shut you out
When they hurt but don't explain
Get back up on your feet
And start again

Don't waste your time
It's 4 in the morning
You will always find a way
Another day
Another day

I found myself here too
And see it now in you
Don't waste your time
It's 4 in the morning
You will always find a way
Another day
Another day
Track Name: Sophie's Song
Sophie So far
Everything I have is what you are
So good to be
You on the road with me

Sophie so fine
The world is yours to find
With she and me
Show you what is possible to be

So what to do
When everything don't quite work out for you
Stay close to me
Sophie

You're everything
All that's without and within
My song I sing
Love and life and limb

So where to go
When there is something going on that you don't know
Stay close with me
Sophie

So how do we
Help you to become what you're meant to me
I'll stay close to you
Sophie

Sophie so fine
All that I wanted is mine
Track Name: Not The Only One
Well your mother gave you life
And your father turned on the light
So they set you up now you must run
Now your time has come

Did your brother tell you what you should be
Should you get down on your knees
Should you pull your hair out one by one
Now your time has come

Well now your time has come
Good things are sure to come
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Oh my sister what will you do
This could be the death of you
Well you spent this time chasing those setting suns
Now you're time has come

Well now your time has come
Good things are sure to come
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Well now your time has come
Good things are sure to come
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Well I keep my head on my feet
The great one's I get to meet
All over and inside
Well they can't do nothing for you
Just hug 'em hold 'em like they're new
You're better off on this side

Will you blindly find a way
Ignore what others might say
Will you fit those pieces one by one
Now your time has come

Well now your time has come
Good things are sure to come
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Well now your time has come
Good things are sure to come
Not the only one
You're not the only one
You're not the only one
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

End - You're Not The Only One (canon)
Track Name: Somebody Down
It took a while to wake up
Time won't let up
Get Up Stand Up
Stand your ground
Now you got my back up
All the way up
I gotta make some luck up
Pow wow wow

Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
You can't keep somebody down

Gonna shake the shack up
Stop the gap up
Crank the sound up loud loud loud

Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down

I got a stone and a stick
I got a bone to pick up
Got a home to brick up
Inside out

Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down

I better pull my socks up
Time won't wait up
Before I crack up in this town

Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody down

Don't you know that you can't keep somebody
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody
Don't you know that you can't keep somebody
Down
Track Name: Woman
Now your soul's holding out
Why won't you say what you mean
And mean what you're talking about

Woman
What I'm saying
I'll take the hits but it's you
That really should scream and shout

Come back here
Talk to me
Where you go
I can to
Take away these traps
And let you breathe
Woman
I need you

You're feeling
You need more
The seas might get rough never doubt
We are not that far from shore

Come back here
Talk to me
Where you go
I can to
Take away these traps
And let you breathe
Woman
I need you

I want you
You want everything
What I can give to you
You must find within

Come back here
To talk to me
Where you go
I can to
Take away these traps
Let you breathe
Woman
I need you
Woman
I need you
Woman
I need you
