all lyrics p & © reprinted with permission

watching me

i can see thereíll be another day somewhere i can find my way but you know thereís someone watching me and i think that i can find somewhere there is piece of mind but you know thereís someone watching me and i had the dream shining out just like a bats stream but you know thereís something that i canít see and i knew i was living there and just because you know thereís someone watching me so i look around but it cant be found but itís somewhere you can spend my time while i drink my wine looking somewhere

and iím thinking i can find a space somewhere i can hide my face but you know thereís someone watching me and you know i think iíll find washed upon the shores of my mind but you know thereís someone watching me and i had the dream shining out just like a bats stream but you know thereís something that i canít see and i knew i was living there and just because you know thereís someone watching me so i look around but it cant be found but itís somewhere you can spend my time while i drink my wine looking somewhere

when liberty smiles

i drank the moonshine and i listened to the talk i knew it wouldnít last but i didnít want to stop and in the streets at night the colours are so pale and the shadows keep their own alive as they drive you like a nail

said about the lucky land of the greenback and dime take a walk in your own backyard before you take a walk in mine i see your roads are paved but it sure donít look like gold and and i knew it was the only way it was the easytrucking motherf@*!ing only way and i can see the way you lie i can read between the lines i can see it in your eyes

so when the call came thru and i didnít wanna go i dug my heels in tight but i was dragging by my soul and liberty smiled at me a face so pure and wise and i knew it was the only way it was the easytrucking motherf@*!ing only way and i can see the way you lie i can read between the lines i can see it in your eyes

feel alright

well thereís something gonna be going on here in my room i get the notion that itís getting stockpiling to get away soon i feel the pressure start to build and baby itís blowing your way and if you think you got the game youíll be getting some play because yeah we gotta get away we gotta break today iíll make you feel alright

if thereís one thing i know iíll tell ya i know it for sure i got a lion in my pocket and baby itís ready to roar and if the tamers not around yíno itíll be looking to feed and after itís had a taste itíll be looking to breed because yeah we gotta get away we gotta break today iíll make you feel alright

red Lights

questions are banging at my head and answers donít seem to make no sense and itís daylight and i got no place to go if itís alright can i sit a while and watch in slo-mo and i can see the red lights shining on your face and i can see the red lights shining on your face

and then you came and you tried to trap my soul with just one touch well that werenít enough i wanted more and iím punch drunk and now iíll have to move it and then youíll know that i got a suck and then iíll groove it and i can see the red lights shining on your face and i can see the red lights shining on your face

and she takes me and she strips me to the bone and i canít win Ďcause i know iím never gonna have to live alone and iím punchdrunk and now iíll have to move it and then youíll say that i sucked you in and spat you out Ďcause I could see the red lights shining on your face and i can see the red lights shining on your face

ONSLAUGHT

(words: DREW music: ALEXANDER/DREW)

when you say it tell me itís forever /and when you say it tell me itís now/so many broken dreams are washed upon the shore/if you had access to them what would you live for/the struggle seems to be the only thing thatís right/so take this farce charade and hold onto your life/and just keep fighting/take the time to think about it take the time to say /take the time to dream about/ it youíll realise that theyíll stand in your way/place your nose onto the grindstone /and hold your head up high/take those fascist dreams and burn them/ donít leave them to die/I've seen it on the TV /I've seen it in your eyes/if you want to cope with life youíd better fucking try/just fuck all the fighting/take the time to think about it /take the time to say /take the time to dream about it /youíll realise that theyíll stand in your way

when worlds collide

walking i saw your eyes and you never smiled for a moment walking i saw your eyes and i waited for a smile your eyes seemed to carry all my fears and my hopes and in your frozen mirror i saw the man that iíd been searchiní for and i smiled at the joining of forces in one perfect passing and dreams had been realized in a twinking in a moment that moment called mine

your eyes carried furs and gold and all the dreams iíd hoped for and all the lives that crossed your path your eyes carried all my hopes and dreams for a moment ,        your eyes your smile your time and iím dreaming of hearts held in your hands in your eyes

words: drew/harvey music: alexander/drew

 

 

whatís goiní on

well iím looking for something more and you ainít got what iím looking for well you knew what you were doing in the back of the store and what was going down when we crossed over the floor was it the only way that the shit could have gone? my eyes were red as blood as we limped thru the morning raking thru the pain we were shot by the hourglass salt and sand and paste was cracked at the shows last glimmer of the light and the story that couldaí been take a look around and see what you shouldaí seen and can you see whatís goiní on behind your fears and can you see whatís goiní on for all those years

and what about that time when we were crossing the line and crashing thru the door and the breaking of time donít think we can replace what the countryman stole we didnít even try to hit on the dole our living was a crime when we drove to the north shore i had no idea what we were even alive for look around and see for the story that shouldaí been take a look around and see what you shouldaí seen and can you see whatís goiní on behind your fears and can you see whatís goiní on for all those years and can you see whatís goiní on and can you feel your life so strong and can you see whatís goiní on behind your fears

T.S. (was it really me?)

(words & music: DREW)

Where did you go and who did you see /what did i do and what did i be /turn of the century cities of grey /work becomes lives and lives becomes graves/and i wonder was it really me/and i wonder was it really me/dissatisfaction with cities of grey/using a pen to look for escape/years move quickly and no-ones to blame/lives without hope and we just canít cope/and i wonder was it really me /and i wonder was it really me/he was a brave man braver than me/i tried the lock but he had the key/opened our hearts and opened our minds /using a pen his life became mine/and i wonder was it really me/and i wonder was it really me

 

 

LIKE YOU

(words & music: DREW)

i can see the way Iím turning out i donít want to be like you/with the breeze in your hair you never seem to care and/in another country you take what you can get /ruin, rape and plunderÖ. westernising the modern world and i am the exponent/i can see the way Iím turning out i donít want to be like you/stuck on shore a couple of thousand whores and/in another country you take what you can get /with the breeze in your hair you never seem to care /and we ride as we write on those four walls that/i can see the way Iím turning out i donít want to be like you/so we took this as far as we could take it/ it changed us all inside/and i knew that when i looked back at today / that Iíd be just like you/but i don't want to be like you.....I don't want to feel like/ Ican see the way Iím turning out i donít want to be like you/i can see the way Iím turning out i donít want to be like you

24 HOURS

(words: DREW music: ALEXANDER/DREW)

twenty-four hours thatís the wav that i kill time /twentv-four hours thatís the way that i kill time/and now itís lying on the floor/the only thing i wanted time for/when you were last here your blood touched the floor/bittersweet memories dogs howl at your door/and i canít hold you and you donít want to know/just twenty-four hours it seems so long to go /and now itís lying on the floor /the only thing i wanted time for/and now your fall has crossed my eyes /itís so transformed Iím redefined/and Iím lost in my mind when there can be no/answers for the twenty-four hours i killed/and Iíd kill again with time /Iíd kill again with time....

THE SHORE

(words: DREW music: ALEXANDER/LEE)

gonna take your hands welcome to the shore /and listen to the things that make you want to know/and youíre flirting and youíre waiting/and youíre flŪrting with life/so you take your hands and you get unsure /and youíre wondering what was the fighting for/and now you say that you care about this /and youíre thinking about the way it was /youíre thinking about the was it should have been/waiting on the shoreline with the wave in your hair /you know the colours right the colour had transformed/the scars were left beforeÖ./watching every shoreline it was the waiting that hurt/it was the scars were left too bare/and Iím waiting on the shoreline/there was nobody there to help you/crosses made to bear/crosses made to bear/you made them to bear

 

 

WINE DARK SEA

(words: DREW music: ALEXANDER/LEE/ HERNņNDEZ)

i stand alone by the waters edge/ my feet are buried in the sand/and the water could be anything /as it lines this dusty land/if i could start again would it mean much more than that /cause the world donít change you only get one chance then thatís that/and the water could be anything /but mostly itís just mud /red dust sits on the city streets/ creates an epidemic flood /with the rising blood of future kings /shines as black as coal/the politic of the underling/ with no hope at all/if i could start again would it mean much more than that /cause the world donít change you only get one chance then thatís that/and the wine dark shines as black as coal and the world wonít change/you hold the promised land but is slips right through like sand

 

 

FACE A NEW DAY

(words: DREW/HARVEY music: ALEXANDER/DREW)

face a new day face the sun/ cannons firing lives exploding /pray for time and pray for god /miracles are all we can hope for /lust reloads the guns of war /and bludgeoned minds repeat the orders die for country die for greed /we die for leaders sowing seeds of power/and all of us are powerless/ in our innocence from their decisions /taking lives and taking ours/ to scar the hills with small white crosses /horizons line the sky with fires/ that burn in the childrenís tortured dreaming /of why we came and the lies we gave/face a new day face the sun/ face the truth of our submission /slaughtering to liberate /we chain the freedom of our thinking /horizons line the sky with fire/ and line the burning conscŪence of our crime/ of why we came and the lives we gave

 

 

 

YEARS GO BY

(words: DREW music ALEXANDER)

well i listen to the stories that you tell/ lived a life on earth in hell/i can see this in your eyes /and i know the reasons why you came/had to justify the blame /of why you gave into yourself/you were waiting on the corner waiting for your life/and i know Iíll never fight like this again/ Iíll never make you understand Iíll never take it in my arms /and i know the reasons why you came you had to justify the blame/ of why you gave into your arm/you weíre waiting on the corner waiting for your life/and all you really wanted cuts you lŪke a knife/thatís because yeah /donít you know the reasons /donít you know itís treason/you canít say thatís justified /and i know the reasons why you came/now things will never be the same/now you gave into your life/you weíre waiting on the corner waiting for your life/and all you really wanted cuts you like a knife/how the years go by how the years go by/how the years go by and on and on and on

 

everything

(words: DREW music: ALEXANDER)

place your hands in the air doesnít matter anywhere/donít you know you mean everything /'place your hands at your feet doesnít matter very deep/you condemn but you donít understand/place yourself in the crowd doesnít matter very loud/donít you know you mean everything /place you hands in the air doesnít matter anywhere/you condemn but you donít understand....... and keep on walking/place your hands in the air doesnít matter anywhere/donít you know you mean everything /place your hands at your feet doesnít matter very deep/you condemn but you donít understand

 

 

 

THE JOURNEY

(Words: DREW music ALEXANDER/LEE/HERNANDEZ)

catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/cause........./I donít know the way it feels/but sometimes it seems so real/i donít know the way it feels/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/i almost held it in my hand/i could smell the foreign land/as we marched across the sand/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/catch a shooting star from the sky/ hey yeah......../i donít know the way it feels/but sometimes it seems so real/i donít know the way it feels
