Track Name: Good Journey?
I can’t get, can’t get no motivation
Good morning dear, how can I help you?
Repeat, repeat, repeat and action
The ties too tight, constant distraction

Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future
Let make these plans something that we can work for

Broken down eight hours a day
Where is the time for celebration?
Repeat, repeat, repeat no action
It’s getting late, bring on the next one

Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future
Let make these plans something that we can work for

We used to talk ourselves to sleep at night
Why can’t we, why can’t we now?

Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future
Let make these plans something that we can work for
Track Name: Saturday's Best, Sunday's Worst
Sitting with a pen in my hand
Ink is spilt from the chewed off lid top
A bitter taste is seeping in
Tongues are dyed not tied
Words don’t form a sentence
One down, two down
I know, let’s talk small, let’s drink, let’s forget

Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst
Thinking moves but who walks first?
Eyes connect, but where is the trust?
From day to day, what needs must?

Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst
Knocked down on the floor
Get yourself back up again

I’ve got a half filled glass, so I’m thinking positive thoughts
The liquid falls with a sour sting
I smile, you smile, you think, I sing
Three down, four down
I know, let’s talk small, let’s drink, let’s forget

Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst
Knocked down on the floor
Get yourself back up again
Track Name: Faith Plus One
Repent, the end is fucking nigh
What was the last song that took you by surprise?
Hit for six, three minutes of pure bliss
Time you don’t mind giving up
Repent, the end is fucking nigh
Saturation, the clones are on the station
Souls are sold for pennies at a time
A quick fix, no tricks, it all fits

Wasting my day

Inspiration at hand, not easily found
Crowds have gathered, the eyes are on the show
Performance begins

Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street
Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh!
Take me away

You try to set the world on fire
Three chords at a time
The backs are turned, the eyes are closed
And nobody knows

Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street
Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh!
Take me away

All hopes and dreams held in one hand
Dropped to the floor without a care
All hopes and dreams held in one hand
Dropped to the floor and no one cares

Inspiration at hand, not easily found
Crowds have gathered, the eyes are on the show
Performance begins

Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street
Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh!
Take me away
Track Name: Jaws V
Well versed, well rehearsed
There’s only so much we can give
An industry crumbling to its knees
Five years in the breaking of
Something that had full respect
Ripped apart by your neglect
Steal from the poor and keep for yourself
How can you kick what you love?
You’re beating us down

Poke a shark in the eye, you’ll get swallowed whole

Last breath, last purpose
There’s no escape into the arts
I spend my day behind a desk
When all I should be doing is getting paid
To do something that satisfies
It’s getting harder the more we try
The streets are quiet, no ones around
The life support is breaking down
Track Name: One More Drink
With a friend like that, who needs an enemy?
A cliché maybe, let’s not stop anyway
A second face appears, it’s time for the fight
One drink away from total failure

You played the game today
Making the getaway
There is a place to stay (One more drink away)
You’ll lose eventually (One more drink away)

The train to your next stop is starting to leave
And the map you planned out is getting hard to read
What do you do now the flask has run dry?
No help from me, I’ll let you pass by

You played the game today
Making the getaway
There is a place to stay (One more drink away)
You’ll lose eventually (One more drink away)

Someone you rely on to have a good time
Broken all trust and hiding no shame
Where do you go next? Where do you try your luck?
Track Name: Man Versus Truth
You feel that strength in numbers
Is the key to a victory?
Surely we must take that with a hint of hypocrisy
Our opinions not backed up
We can’t say a word
Hands tied behind backs
You won’t make us crack
And I’m falling down

Too many stories all merging into one
Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses
Moments just begun
A new mask, won’t hide your scar
A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands

My reflection in the mirror is censored by a hand
I try to spit out the words, buy gagged by my former plan
Given up trying
You’re beating me down
Sand in my eyes
All feelings are numb
And I’m falling down

Too many stories all merging into one
Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses
Moments just begun
A new mask, won’t hide your scar
A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands

Product placement is the key
Point your finger, you will see

Too many stories all merging into one
Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses
Moments just begun
A new mask, won’t hide your scar
A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands
Track Name: Treading Water
Verse 1
The clock ticks, it's time to make a change. Growing apart, we've become estranged.
Quick living will break you down. Forgiving can break you out.
It's time for a new direction.
Year after year it's been time to go. A moral dilemna, who will let them know?
Quick living will break you down. Forgiving can break you out. Break me out.

Bridge
To make the best of me, I know I'll make it worse for you.
Followed by a feeling of abandonment, so cold, for you.

Chorus
And do you think I'm satisfied? Oh no. Looking forward for the first time so you'll know.
There will be no compromise, tomorrow is the beginning to my end.
Beginning to my end.

Verse 2
This time we landed on our feet, our crime won't admit defeat.
Together we'll bring them round. Forever is out of bounds.
I can't justify my actions.
Set the mark so high, I can't say goodbye.
Together we'll bring them round. Forever is out of bounds.
Out of bounds.

Heavy Chorus
Whoooaaahhh whooaahhh whoooaahhh!!

Last chorus
And do you think I'm satisfied? Oh no. Looking forward for the first time so you'll know.
There will be no compromise, I'm treading water.
Track Name: Glory
Growing old, alone
Getting colder, sitting on the bus and staring out the window
Four more years to go until I’m out of here, I’ll see it, believe me

I want to be something that I cannot be
Wondering what I could’ve achieved with a little bit more forward planning
The clock ticks on while I stand still lingering

Catching up, again
Friends of yesterday, looking in the mirror thinking of whatever
Sharing tales of past success, triumph, distaste, disgrace

I want to be something that I cannot be
Wondering what I could’ve achieved with a little bit more forward planning
The clock ticks on while I stand still lingering
