Track Name: Valuable Skin
Look at her on the stage,
And him on the page,
A comparison with only one end,
It won’t ever console,
Whatever I am told,
Defining success will depend

The years that should aid,
And disappointments will fade,
A promise with no real conviction,
It’s unhealthy to reveal,
Negativity you feel,
Why talk or worse have someone listen?

(Chorus)
So when we look in the mirror,
Let’s focus on seeing past what is shattered,
And concentrate on right now,
On what we know will always matter,
‘Cos the reflection,
Can be our invention,
And even deception’s,
A valuable skin

And it’s not about money, not about the status,
Not about fame or being in the papers,
Not being on the news or being number one,
Not being approved or being someone,
Not being in demand or winning awards,
Not claiming the spotlight or attracting the hordes.

Make your choices with care,
So that how you compare’s,
A decision more than a reaction,
Easier said than done,
You may choose anyone,
Your heart should know its own satisfaction.

Chorus

And it’s not about money, not about the status
Not about fame or being in the papers,
Not being on the news or being number one
Not being approved or being someone
Not being in demand or winning awards
Not claiming the spotlight or attracting the hordes
Not ego or vanity
Pretentious insanity
Just a quiet satisfaction
Of being worthwhile
Track Name: Ferocious Love
There’s a real debate – waiting in store,
If we open up – and look around
To face a view – that won’t survive like before,
Long after denier’s voices are drowned

If we’re afraid - of a choice to cut down,
To recognise - our demand’s not the rule.
To see the planet as our village and town
Then there’s only one winner in this duel

No longer hugging trees or forever saying please,
No figure will make it right, no bribe will quell the fight
This place defines us and cannot disappear
We’ve got to talk

No bigger income streams in boardrooms now,
Nothing more certain to make Governments hear,
Let’s be at the table and not crying foul,
No longer victims, not bulldozed by fear

There’ll be alliances where they’d not think to look,
Leaving divisions to one side
A fight this size can’t be by the book,
Compromise and profit can’t always collide

Faith in our invincibility ignores a power so plain to see,
No figure will make it right, no bribe will quell the fight
This place defines us and cannot disappear
We’ve got to talk

Ferocious Love
Track Name: Noughts & Ones
If it’s the soundtrack of your life,
Or the root of another great night,
Or an epiphany in your heart,
Or it’s evoking a life ripped apart,
Or the background to so many tears,
Or the time check for passing years,

This is no accident, it never could be,
These moments can never come free,
For those whose minds where they begun,
It’s so much more than noughts and ones.

And they may look to be from somewhere else,
Where all is freedom and money and self,
Where no routine like ours is seen
In a world where we’ve never been,
But that’s just the top of the tree,
Where almost no ever gets to be,

For most it’s a business so tough,
Where dreams sustain through the rough,
For those whose ideas drive money men’s fun,
It’s so much more than noughts and ones.

So who’s gonna pay if not us?
So who’s gonna pay - maybe us
