Survive 

lately, I don't know what's right 
I don't know what's wrong,  what's going on? 
I am ready, standing on the edge of the cliff 
to jump off, from this precipice 
catch me now 

'cause I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive   
take me from the hills, faraway 
I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive 
take me by the hand,  be my guide 
from here 

I ran, until I couldn't run 
fell down, what more could be done? 
its late now, there is no more time 
so I looked around, hoping for a sign 
show me how 

'cause I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive   
take me from the hills, faraway 
I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive 
take me by the hand,  be my guide 
from here 

...I  see  no light ahead 
here...listening to the drums I dread 
here ...I can smell the fear in me 
here...I feel the air, I breathe

'cause I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive   
take me from the hills, faraway 
I don't want to live, I don't want to die, I just want a place to survive 
take me by the hand,  be my guide 
from here

If I Had a Gun 

driving down the avenue 
having fun, until you 
cut me off, in my tracks 
my light mood, turned to black 

'cause if I had a gun, you know you wouldn't be here 
I'd line you up in my sights, pull the trigger, I swear 

you call me up, at the end of the day 
sell me shit, just go away 
and you never, let me speak 
"Hey you, I said no last week" 

'cause if i had a gun, you know you wouldn't be around 
I'd dig a great big hole, and put you 6 feet, in the ground 

you scream and shout all day long 
when I'm right, you say I'm wrong 
on and on, like I never heard 
and always got to get the last word 

'cause if I had a gun, I'd shoot you right in the head 
and this time I'd be happy, for you to get the last word, and now you're dead 
and this time I'd be happy, for you to get the last word, and now you're dead

This Country 

beaten down       
on the ground 
is there somewhere safe around here? 
I'm held back 
catching flak 
just for the clothes that I wear 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own 

a life of crime 
on their minds 
can't they see that there is another way? 
straighten up 
don't live rough 
it's much harder to do than it is to say 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own 

and I wandered around for days   
seeing where I could fit in 
looked and looked for a way ahead 
but I just don't know where to begin 
I just don't know where to begin 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own

Talkin on the Telephone 

I can't wait to get home, know it won't be long 
'til I hear your voice, coming through so strong 
I pick up the telephone, dial your code 
my fingers know the way,  be there soon 
talkin' on the telephone 

we can talk for hours, about anything 
I don't really care, as long as it's you  
your voice calms me down, at the end of the day 
sometimes I fall asleep, where I lay 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 

this just feels so right 
we could go on talking through the night 
I just want to say 
all the things I couldn't to your face 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
         
I've been sitting here, hoping you will ring     
its been 24 hours, since you whispered my name 
get messages all day, help me get through 
I treasure all of them, but it's not the same 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 
talkin' on the telephone, oh oh 

la da da da.............

Stanley 

gave you a house and a home 
​but it wasn't enough for you to own 
built you up when you were down 
helped you through and through 
got nothing in return 
should have seen the signs from you and learned 
drank from me with all your thirst 
but my river ran dry 
and I finally saw the lie 

here comes stanley, supposed to follow me​ 
​misunderstood what you implied, yeah it's suicide 

you finally chose your course 
try not to fall from your high horse 
the road ahead has broken dreams 
be careful what you want 
no one can trust you now 
don't even try to wonder how 
my river is out of bounds 
come I'll set my hounds 
mistrust has no bounds 

here comes stanley, supposed to follow me​ 
​misunderstood what you implied, yeah it's suicide, 
yeah it's suicide 

stanley, I've got news for you 
this is no B.F., where you choose 
stanley, the other side don't care 
whatever happens now, you will lose 

here comes stanley, supposed to follow me​ 
​misunderstood what you implied, yeah it's suicide, 
yeah it's suicide 

here comes stanley, supposed to follow me​ 
​misunderstood what you implied, yeah it's suicide, 
yeah it's suicide 
yeah it's suicide 
yeah it's suicide

Pretty Good 

sailed my boat down under    
a place I hadn't ​b​een for a while​  
I took cover from the thunder 
followed me mile after mile 

and I said, hey yeah, life is pretty good​    
and I said, hey yeah, never ​felt​ so good 

came ashore at the high tide 
lit a fire ​down ​all saints beach 
felt the pain in my body subside 
when I knew that I was out of reach 

and I said, hey yeah, life is pretty good​    
and I said, hey yeah, never ​felt​ so good 

​​and ​I stripped, down to the bone, ​in my new ​home​, under the stars​       
twilight, made my day bright, under the moonlight, healed all my scars 

and I said, hey yeah, life is pretty good​    
and I said, hey yeah, never ​felt​ so good

Night Train 

its getting late, they've shut the gate 
we've missed the easy way out of here 
too much wine, and auld lang syne 
I heard about those others that disappeared 
got no choice, it's come to the point    
where we don't get to decide 

on the night train,  oooooo  
on the night train, we're coming home 
on the night train, ooooooooo 
its just not another saturday night 

watch the door, there'll be no more 
no need to add to the situation 
they're shouting back, a metal track 
they are at nowhere station 
accelerate, don't hesitate 
it's going to be a bumpy ride 

on the night train,  oooooo  
on the night train, we're coming home 
on the night train, ooooooooo 
its just not another saturday nightf                               
​ooooooo   
going right 
into oblivion 

on the night train,  oooooo  
on the night train, we're coming home 
on the night train, ooooooooo 
its just not another saturday night 

on the night train,  oooooo  
on the night train, we're coming home 
on the night train, ooooooooo 
its just not another saturday night

Lift 

you've been fighting all your life, how's that been working out? 
such a struggle on your own 
it is no longer safe, to be somewhere in your space 
but now it can come to an end 

lift your hands up slowly   
lift your hands up high 
lift your hands up slowly    
lift your hands up high 

always knew that you were right, had such a worthy plight 
but others couldn't see it that way 
it is time to make a call, you can either stand or fall 
put aside your fighting words today 

lift your hands up slowly   
lift your hands up high 
lift your hands up slowly    
lift your hands up high 

ahhhhhhhhh  it can be over 
ahhhhhhhhh  it can be over 

lift your hands up slowly   
lift your hands up high 
lift your hands up slowly    
lift your hands up high 

ahhhhhhhhh  it can be over 
ahhhhhhhhh  it can be over

Keep You Alive 

I was walking down the road, on my own  
couldn't find you, couldn't reach you, on the phone 
I was worried, you are too young, to live your life like this way 
didn't want this to be the one, about the one that got away 
now that you have strayed, there's a price to pay   

I tried to keep you alive  
yeah I tried    
yeah I'd die to keep you alive  
yeah I'd die 

I finally found you, you were with a drugged up man 
saw him pass you something, from his left hand 
couldn't see it, but I knew that, it wasn't a good sign 
if you only knew, you understood, it breaks this heart of mine 
time to set things right, put my body on the line 

I tried to keep you alive  
yeah I tried    
yeah I'd die to keep you alive  
yeah I'd die 

keep you alive 
to keep you alive 

I tried to keep you alive  
yeah I tried    
yeah I'd die to keep you alive  
yeah I'd die

I like to be Alone 

I came crawling out a deep and dusty hole 
spent so much time by myself, I like to keep control 
if you approach me, when I'm walking down the street 
I'd turn off round a corner, before we even meet 

sometimes my own company is too much for me   
keep your distractions, let me be free                     
I like to be alone  

​woke up in the middle of the night, heard an awful noise 
I tried to go to sleep again, but I didn't have a choice 
so I drove out to the desert then, so I could get some rest 
when there is no one around, is when I'm at my best 

sometimes my own company is way too much for me   
stick your distractions, let me be free                     
I like to be alone  
I like to be alone 
I like to be alone 
I like to be alone
