REFLECTION

You’ll regret it further on down the line

C’mon baby now, Don’t you waste my time

You’ll regret it further on down the line

C’mon baby now, Don’t you waste my time

Oh no....

Take some time for reflection

Just before you lose your way

No one needs misdirection

I’m gonna have to make you pay

I’ve waited too long for an answer

Whatcha really trying to say?

Don’t give a sense of misdirection

I’m gonna have to make you pay

You know my baby now, you’re so hard to please,

You know my baby she knocks me to my knees,

You know my baby now, you’re so hard to please,

You know my baby she knocks me to my knees,

Take some time for reflection

Just before you lose your way

No one needs misdirection

I’m gonna have to make you pay

I’ve waited too long for an answer

Whatcha really trying to say?

Don’t give a sense of misdirection

I’m gonna have to make you pay

AKWARD BOY

He ain’t the new kid in town

He ain’t the popular clown

He sits in back of the class

The kids, they think he’s an ass

And it’s getting him down

He’s not the guy that you phone

Spends too much time on his own

He’s just an awkward boy

He’s not the first one you seek

The kids they call him a freak

Either too fat or too short

To be selected for sport

He’s more a nerd or a geek

The local kid that they shun

A life than isn’t much fun

He’s just an awkward boy

He ain’t your chivalrous knight

He don’t appear none too bright

It won’t be too much a shame

No one remembers his name

But he says “It’s alright..”

Why don’t you give him a break

He’s taken all he can take

He’s just an awkward boy

FREEDOMLAND

We were Conquistadors

We came in search of gold

We thought we knew the score

The land was ours to take

The natives called it home

But that was their mistake

We claim the things we see

The land and shining sea

The pretty things that shine

Welcome to my estate

I ’ve come to fill my plate

Who needs integrity?

I'm with the GOP, I'm rich,male and white

It's my legacy _

I get to bend the rules, It's me who gets to choose

God bless democracy_

I've got to make a stand, those dreams of civil rights

Have gotten out of hand_

Got funds from the NRA, We keep America great

We let them have their way _

So tell me where's the harm, In selling guns and arms

God bless the U.S.A._

The torch is burning bright, our markets proud and free

Especially if you're white, it's our destiny!

Welcome to Freedomland , it's just the game we play

We call Democracy

SANDMAN

Welcome to my world of dreams

Where everyone can fly

A trip can last a thousand years

‘Cause no one ever dies

Let me stay here

Calm and quiet

I never want to part

Somewhere on the vast plateau

The plains, they kiss the sky

The river of a thousand tears

We cross the bridge of sighs

Let me stay here

Lay down beside it

Open up your heart

Welcome to this kingdom come

Where many tales are told

Diving beneath all consciousness

We’ll let the night unfold

Let me stay here

Ask no questions

I go with the tide

Let me stay here

In each direction

Where I’m free to ride

INTERLUDE

Welcome to the world apart

You’re free to come and go

The ticket price is your shared dreams

I’m the Sandman, don’t you know?

INSIDE DANCE

Have you heard about the new thing going round?

The brand new dance we be putting down

It’s a dance for those who’s future seems bright

Gonna boogie on down with all our might

You’ll never be a victim of circumstance

Not if you’re an expert of the inside dance

You can do it upstanding or in your chair

It’s a movement that’s well accepted everywhere

On your rugby ground or your swimming pool

It’s your platinum card of ultimate cool

It’s shakin’ from Dunedin out to Paris, France

Got to keep it kickin’ with the inside dance

Harry and Jack, they know what’s what

The boys are maintained well above the final cut

We’re sending it out to Swansea so clear

We got it both in the north and southern hemisphere

You don’t get suckered by games of chance

If you follow the Tao of the inside dance

ALL THAT MATTERS

Coming down from the clouds

It's the lay of the land, the blue of the sea

I know that you're waiting there

All the tales that we will share

I see your face in the crowd

It's our time, wild and free

In the car and on our way

It's the start of a perfect day

It's another day in paradise

We put on our shades and ride with the sun

Later on with a glass of wine

Not a care, it feels so fine

And it's all that matters to me

Take a drive through the plains

As summer comes, the heat in the air

On the beach or in the park

Something fine from dawn till dark

There's so much here, it's like paradise

We're never far from sand and the sea

It's the time I hear you say

Let's be out and on our way

And it's all that matters to me

MASSA JOHN

Massa John gonna throw a party

Gotta put your glad-rags on -2xs

Goin’ up to de big house

Wit’ all dem folks

Gotta step n’ fetchet

Laugh at Massa’s jokes

Don’t sass nobody

And don’t you frown

Don’t’cha give him no reason

To put us down

Massa John gonna throw a party

Gotta put your glad-rags on -2xs

 

We’ve got us a mortgage

And bills to pay

Can’t let free thinking

Get in our way

He loves his position

So don’t you make him cross

‘Cause he’ll give us the boot

Just to show he’s the boss

Massa John gonna throw a party

Gotta put your glad-rags on -2xs

With a political agenda

You’d best be on the right side

Cast your votes correctly

Or it’ll be your hide

When he says “Yes”, vote YES!

When he says “No”, vote NO!

And if you can’t read the signals,

You’d better say ‘I don’t know’!

Massa John gonna throw a party

Gotta put your glad-rags on –4xs

CAUTIONARY TALE

Best to watch what’cha doin’ Jack,

There’s some things you can’t retract

Keep your actions cool n’ low,

I’d be careful of the forward pass,

Or you just might be turned up on your ass,

You’ll be up the creek with nowhere to go

You’ve got to know how to keep it cool,

C‘mon Jacky baby, you’re no fool

It ain’t the time to fail the test,

Don’t let your temper rule your mouth

Or you’ll be headed straight down south

You need to show ‘em your the best

Best be thinking what you’re doin’ son,

Of you’re finished before you’ve begun

It ain’t the time to take the bite,

Don’t you see, she’s out to reel you in,

Twice as bad as original sin,

You know you need to do what’s right

If you see it from this point of view

Everybody’s got their eyes on you

This ain’t the time to let ‘em down,

Give the thing a bit of latitude

There’s no need to cop an attitude

Let’s keep our feet on solid ground

 

FINALLY...WHEN YOU FALL

Hey, What can I say ?

You just won’t be told

You’re so secure in your knowledge

Your pride has made you bold

Since you’ve no doubts of your judgements

We’ll let you make the call

But tell who’ll be there to catch you

Finally... When you fall?

You talk of gender and races

As if you’ve inscribed your decree

That inferiors should know their places

And how the order was meant to be

For all your greater glory

We should all be kept in thrall,

God knows, who’ll be there to catch you

Finally...When you fall

Hey, take a look at what’s going on

Can’t you smell the scent

Your injustice has lingered far too long

That’s why there’s so much discontent

And you really don’t have any answers

How can you walk so tall

Knowing it’s us you’ll need to lean on

Finally...When you fall
