Track Name: Your Place
A 30-year-old electoral bribe
Is still hurting today
Back then a few got to win but since so
Many have been left to pay

And the voices of moral outrage have all cried
And questioned why nothing ‘s changed well
They say they tried
but the problem’s
Too big and too old,
And too complex we’re told,
It’s their fault and not ours,
We’re stuck with no powers.

Easy to say that we all deserve our own space
But it looks like they’re keeping you in your place.

They were told what you get you bank
The councils towed the line
So building stopped and it‘s stalled since
Landlords are doing fine

And the voices of the young are left hung out to dry
Are prompting so many pledges
But still they cry,
that the problem’s
Too big and too old,
And too complex we’re told,
It’s their fault and not ours,
We’re stuck with no powers.

Easy to say that we all deserve our own space
But it looks like they’re keeping you in your place

Easy to say that we all deserve our own space
But it looks like they’re keeping you in your place

A hundred years ago - rent control and mortgages for all
And yet after 30 years we‘re still,
Lacking nothing but will.
Track Name: Remind Yourself
Aches, pains and other little annoyances,
A brittle creakiness,
An inevitable erosion of flexibility,
A stealthy dulling of the senses,
An increasing world weariness

Remind yourself that you’re alive

The state of everyday life Is dull and mundane,
The state of fears, dreams, hopes and longings are vibrant and alive –
Brightly coloured and compulsive;
They’re closer to the truth.
Track Name: Better For You
It’s not me
Who makes all your troubles go away
I’d be so much more value every day

I watch you close,
I wish that I could burst through the blue,
Be a warm cloak of comfort just for you

It’s not you,
This person in your mind’s not who others see,
It’s someone else they know admiringly

There’s nothing left to worry you here,
You’ve nothing at all to fear,
Whatever we may go through,
I want to make it better for you,
Whatever happens to me and you,
I want to make it better for you

You fear the worst,
As if the lowest viewpoint’s the only one,
But there’s so much more to you that’s said and done

You know all that,
That courage is your vital natural shield,
There are demons yes but you never yield

There’s nothing to diminish you now,
You’ll break free if you’ll allow,
Whatever I say and do
I want to be better for you
Whatever happens to me and you,
I want to make it better for you

There’s nothing that I would not try for you,
To make sure that we get by,
I know that it can be so too,
So much better for you
Track Name: Take Our Sides
Facts can’t be alternative.
Everyone knows what you’re saying,
There’s only one truth,
Everyone knows the game you’re playing

Those whose time has come,
Have momentum and righteous place,
Their victory has encouraged,
A stance as open public face

Not a promise but a pledge and intention,
Actually a lie and invention

Suddenly what you feel is right,
Is attacked as so much bias and lies,
We can choose to melt away,
Or to take our sides

Not a promise but a pledge and intention,
Actually a lie and invention
Track Name: Our Own Prey
There’s no point thinking – it’s for one day,
That’s not a plan – just something to say,
But it’s far too easy,
For intentions to slip away.

Our time’s a gift – we know so well,
It’s our own stories – that we will tell,
It’s our call,
It’s us that we must compel.

When comfort mean paralysis,
And opportunities forever missed,
It’s not exactly lying,
Or laziness in not trying,
But it is just time flying,
Away.

Once I would scorn those – who prevaricate,
But when you’re young – it’s never too late,
But urgency now,
Should never make us afraid.

It’s stupid and hopeless – to stand in our own way,
It mugs us and robs us – of our own days,
We are our victim,
We are our own prey.

When comfort mean paralysis,
And opportunities forever missed,
It’s not exactly lying,
Or laziness in not trying,
But it is just time flying,
Away.

How could I have been so sure back in those days?
Maybe every decision should have gone another way
Even if so that’s no reason to be frozen today
