You've fallen out of favour A debt you can't repay And now you're heading for the door Your instincts tell you Hard times are here to stay No point in hiding any more No more A false dawn in the summertime Your light no longer shines A false dawn in the summertime Each time that you fall Pick you up and set you straight Now I can't bear you no more No more A false dawn in the summertime Your light no longer shines A false dawn in the summertime A false dawn in the summertime Your light no longer shines A false dawn in the summertime

Always thinking, you must be right Constant lying, victimised You always let me down When I play it fair and square Enjoy the silence, the underflow Cut your ties and let me go Fighting to the death Hanging on for one more day It's been the longest time Now the end is on its way The sun has set, the day is done Nowhere left for us to go Time to face what we've become You'll never know the things I know First a maybe, then a might Back on the burner for another night Could not avoid your sting In the end I'll get my way For the longest time Gonna make you pay The sun has set, the day is done Nowhere left for us to go Time to face what we've become You'll never know the things I know The things I know For the longest time Streets were paved with gold And for the longest time Could not escape your hold The sun has set, the day is done Nowhere left for us to go Time to face what we've become You'll never know the things I know The sun has set, the day is done Nowhere left for us to go Time to face what we've become You'll never know the things I know The things I know The things I know The things I know

Pick a pocket, fuel a fire Watch the flames go higher and higher Been a devil since you were a boy Just doing what you enjoy Ambition Division Your truth is blown But you don't care Pass the bottle, get so high No point in asking why Always pushing, nth degree Spirit running free Their mission Contrition Your end unknown And now, now you've got to go Silence, violence A cry that can't be heard Silence, violence Taken at your word Silence, violence Judgment null and void Silence, violence Broken and destroyed In the battle, behind the wire Never knowing what will transpire Find the strength in your lungs All set when the moment comes Admission Transmission Sat on your throne And now, now you've got to go Silence, violence Cries cannot be heard Silence, violence Taken at your word Silence, violence Judgment null and void Silence, violence Broken and destroyed

So what d'you want to be? Got the ability Anything you want Nothing appeals to you Just need something new Time to pay your way You can't take no more You've made up your mind You're heading for the door A headstart in a dead end job 60 hours with one day off Promotion promised - never arrives On the treadmill, rest of your life Early morning, rise and shine Home at 5, clock in at 9 You got your pension, your company car All you lack's ambition You're happy with your lot Yeah, you've got no skills You gotta pay the bills Start to feel the weight And as the years go by You stockpile regret Could have so much more A headstart in a dead end job 60 hours with one day off Promotion promised - never arrives On the treadmill, rest of your life Early morning, rise and shine Home at 5, clock in at 9 You got your pension, your company car All you lack's ambition Got to face the facts You've become stale and numb As you were told A headstart in a dead end job Two days in lieu and four weeks off Promotion promised - never arrives A headstart in a deadend job 60 hours with one day off Got a discount for your family and friends Cos you're employee of the month Early morning, rise and shine Home at 5, clock in at 9 You got your pension, your company car Ohhhhhhh, oh yeah A headstart in a deadend job A headstart in a deadend job A headstart in a deadend job No real expectations All you lack's ambition Endless repetition Stand by your decision now

Not sure what it's all about Though I've seen it all before Did what I had to do Returned the honour that I stole But my world still tumbled down Oh, oh, oh In the night I hear you call Darkness fades away You always catch me when I fall The future starts today Today Sitting, staring at the wall Tried so hard to make it right I'll never take the blame Did what I was asked to do Now my life is upside down Oh, oh, oh In the night I hear you call Darkness fades away You always catch me when I fall Others leave, you stay And as we walk towards the light At last I'm standing tall And in my arms I hold the prize The greatest gift of all Of all It all started With a song Melody and rhyme We collided We belong Another song to sing On some summer's day In the night I hear you call Darkness fades away You always catch me when I fall Others leave, you stay And as we walk towards the light At last I'm standing tall And in my arms I hold the prize The greatest gift of all Of all

Such a sad affair Shorn of fortitude Don't know what to say Through the shallow tide Think of another time Breathe in and wait Reduced to servitude Live in solitude Nowhere else to stay Programmed to conspire Hanging on the wire There's no o other way The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Cos peace never lasts The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Based on the past Show another face If you only could But you were born this way Find a place to hide Slowly realise It's never too late The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Cos peace never lasts The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Based on the past Don't roll the dice You'll pay the price Play the long game - delay Stand by the door Till the sun cries your name Grow in magnitude Try to change the mood All these claims won't go away No bargaining And the fists are raised Fists are raised The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Cos peace never lasts The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Based on the past The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Cos peace never lasts The fire will ignite The fire will ignite Based on the past Based on the past Cos peace never lasts Based on the past

Go to sleep my little baby, close your tired little eyes. Drift off to sleep my little one, and I'll you sing a lullaby. Your daddy's gone, he's left us, he doesn't love me any more, He's gone off with Jessie Gourlay, the one they call the village whore. Don't you fret now little lady, drift off and be at rest, We don't need your daddy, a bone idle, drunken pest. Need to put you down, want a glass of wine. Why do I have to sing to you? You take up my drinking time. Keep drifting off to sleep, I'll nip out to the van, Get my cigarettes and weed from a man known only as Tam. I love you little baby, you'll not come to any harm, But just to let you know, I'm gonna have to sell your pram. The price of drugs is rising, need to cut back on food, Can't afford to buy you rusks, never mind, bread is just as good. Go to sleep my little baby, close your tired little eyes. Drift off to sleep my little one, and I'll you sing a lullaby. No milk, only water, I'm not spoiling you, you see, What's good enough for you, is good enough for me. Might add a little whisky, if Johnny comes to see, His lovely little baby, and bounce you on his knee. Drift off my little sweetheart, don't fret about your mother, Your granny's coming to get you, I've said you'll be no bother. Don't let me down, don't cry, it's cheerio, not goodbye. I'll see you when I've served my time, don't worry pet, I'll be fine. Go to sleep my little baby, close your tired little eyes. Drift off to sleep my little one, and I'll you sing a lullaby. And I'll sing you a lullaby. And I'll sing you a lullaby. Probation! Yes I'll try, and I'll sing you a lullaby. Probation! Yes I'll try, and I'll sing you a lullaby. Probation! Yes I'll try, and I'll sing you a lullaby. Probation! Yes I'll try, and I'll sing you a lullaby.

New Tomorrow 04:21
When you live on the streets, you dream of a home Behind bars, your dream is to roam To see is the dream of the blind To belong is the dream of those left behind A chance to forget this moment we're in Block all we know, the places we've been Your life is seen in the good it reflects The downtrodden dream of respect Crippled dream of walking Dumb dream of talking Can't stop the demons of those without hope Their dreams are shattered, all turned to dust Dream on they must, a future shining bright Dream into the night Good health is the dream of the frail and the old A warm fire's the dream of the cold A smile's the dream of the sad and depressed The loveless dream of a gentle caress Crippled dream of walking Dumb dream of talking Can't stop the demons of those without hope Their dreams are shattered, all turned to dust Dream on they must, a future shining bright Dream into the night Worries fade as dreams erase the despair Change of focus, a life without care Tonight they'll dream of the day that will follow Dream there will be a new tomorrow Crippled dream of walking Dumb dream of talking Can't stop the demons of those without hope Their dreams are shattered, all turned to dust Dream on they must, a future shining bright Dream into the night Worries fade as dreams erase the despair Change of focus, a life without care Tonight they'll dream of the day that will follow Dream there will be a new tomorrow New tomorrow New tomorrow New tomorrow New tomorrow

It's a battle every day As people start to look away In a game that can't be won In a race that has been run In the workings of your mind All the dreams you'll leave behind Take your memories and go Take your memories and go At last - remove your ego Let all your feelings show Cos the writing's on the wall And we all know You'll jump before you fall Yes, the writing's on the wall And you can tell As you face your last farewell So you no longer pray Can't keep the demons at bay "What's the point of this?" you say You always knew it'd end this way Take your memories and go Take your memories and go At last - remove your ego Let all your feelings show Cos the writing's on the wall And we all know You'll jump before you fall Yes, the writing's on the wall And you can tell As you face your last farewell Cos the writing's on the wall And we all know You'll jump before you fall Yes, the writing's on the wall And you can tell As you face your last farewell Farewell Farewell Farewell Farewell
