Broken wing 03:48
I can’t resist a broken wing It’s a weakness in my heart I want to mend this fragile thing Before it’s torn apart I’ve got a history of empathy With the person in decay I let them in, the down-and-out The waif and the stray A broken wing is all you need to To catch my eye It’s a kind of kindness, my heart to bleed And I don’t even know why Take advantage all you like I’m a well of feel-good vibes Generosity tends to spiike When I feel I’m improving lives I wish I could resist the urge To lift you higher than me But needs must, just say the words And we could both be free A broken wing is all you need to To catch my eye It’s a kind of kindness, my heart to bleed And I don’t even know why Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing Broken wing A broken wing is all you need to To catch my eye To catch my eye It’s a kind of kindness, my heart to bleed And I don’t even know why I don’t know why A broken wing is all you need to To catch my eye To catch my eye It’s a kind of kindness, my heart to bleed And I don’t even know why I don’t know why I don’t know why

Driving down a different road I can’t see the destination All I know’s what I’ve been told Patience will be your salvation Driving down a different road Looks to be a new location Breeze is blowing, getting cold Darkness brings a new frustration But I See the headlights Make a decision But I Get caught in this Head-on collision It’s you and me So finally We have crashed into each other Just win the fight And get it right There’s so much to discover Flashing lights and Satellites We have found our way to space Away from Earth And our home turf We’ve gained the speed to win this race It’s been a long time coming It’s been a long time coming with you Coming with you But I See the headlights Make a decision And I Get caught in this Head-on collision It’s you and me So finally We have crashed into each other Just win the fight And get it right There’s so much to discover It’s you and me So finally We have crashed into each other Just win the fight And get it right There’s so much to discover But I See the headlights Make a decision And I Get caught in this Head-on collision It’s you and me So finally We have crashed into each other Just win the fight And get it right There’s so much to discover It’s you and me So finally We have crashed into each other Just win the fight And get it right There’s so much to discover

Archduke Franz Ferdinand Never knew what was to follow How can we be certain that the world Will be here tomorrow The irony that liberty Means limiting the rights of another Just tell me is that the mouth With which you kiss your mother Left or right, why must we fight Why must we do it hour by hour Each side sets its sights On ultimate power We waited a long time We waited for ever Wanting to see your behaviour We waited a long time But never say never Now we know you’re not Our saviour Peddling social injustice Engage politically With tax-exempt institutions A state that claims to be religiously free Donations come pouring in The dollars come in handy To sway those followers Blind to your modus operandi Left or right, why must we fight Why must we do it hour by hour Each side sets its sights On ultimate power We waited a long time We waited for ever Wanting to see your behaviour We waited a long time But never say never Now we know you’re not Our saviour We waited a long time We waited for ever Wanting to see your behaviour We waited a long time But never say never Now we know you’re not Our saviour

Walking in circles Playing the fool Demanding attention Breaking the cardinal rule Why can’t you be like the rest of us I know you could be the best of us Somewhere between darkness and light You find your way Juggling the sun and the moon Every day Why can’t you do as you’re told Why can’t you behave Speaking the first words that enter your mind Thinking that it’s brave Why can’t you be like the rest of us The rest of us I know you could be the best of us Somewhere between darkness and light You find your way Juggling the sun and the moon Every day I know it’s not in your nature to compromise But I wish you could see what’s before your eyes Why can’t you be like the rest of us The rest of us I know you could be the best of us Somewhere between darkness and light You find your way Juggling the sun and the moon Every day Somewhere between darkness and light You find your way Juggling the sun and the moon Every day

Anyway 04:00
I watched them all expire I watched them all decay Who wants to live for ever Anyway I saw them shuffle on I watched them every day Who needs to be in love Anyway Two hearts that beat as one But nothing goes my way Who needs companionship Anyway I came down from the stars It’s you who made me stay Who wants to make it right Anyway I watched them all expire I watched them all decay Who wants to live for ever Anyway I need to make a move Before I go insane Who wants to stay the same Anyway

I thought it was getting better but it’s not I thought it was getting better but it’s not Look at me now What do you see A fading shadow of what used to be Look at me then The mountains I climbed Achievements I left so far behind Can we change it Can we change it for good Can we change it I thought it was getting better but it’s not I thought it was getting better but it’s not Someone misspoke They told an untruth They peddled a lie without producing the proof A scene without change A life without cause Presuming the facts without slowing to pause Can we change it Can we change it for good Can we change it I thought it was getting better but it’s not I thought it was getting better but it’s not I thought it, I thought it, Was getting better I thought it, I thought it, Was getting better I thought it, I thought it, Was getting better But it’s not I thought it was getting better but it’s not I thought it was getting better but it’s not

Freedom 04:36
Freedom comes too easily That’s what they say They want you to work for it All day and every day A slice of Victoriana Seems to be a must Do your duty, work for ever It’s the workhouse or bust They’re so out of such With their inheritance and land But they run the country And we know where we stand Demonise the working classes But our time will come It’s time to stand with those who see it These straight, rich white men are scum If you think I’m being precious And don’t agree with this song If you think an oligarchy Is healthy, then you’re wrong But if you see that we’re not floating In the same rotting boat Exercise your only freedom And vote Of course they want you to think It’s not their fault, you see But we can track and trace Each failure to their party If you think I’m being precious And don’t agree with this song If you think an oligarchy Is healthy, then you’re wrong But if you see that we’re not floating In the same rotting boat Exercise your only freedom And vote Windrush Grenfell Free school meals Covid 19 Dodgy deals NHS PPE Blocking The Russian Inquiry If you think I’m being precious And don’t agree with this song If you think an oligarchy Is healthy, then you’re wrong But if you see that we’re not floating In the same rotting boat Exercise your only freedom And vote

Sunshine breaking through From behind the clouds I wonder how We came so far In such a short amount of time Mountains breaking through From beneath the clouds I wonder how They came so far Just so we could climb It’s never easy Breaking through But sometimes It’s just the only thing to do Force equals mass times Acceleration Deliberation Obsessing over exactly what We are meant to do Zooming in Into fractal detail What does that entail Examining The what and why and who It’s never easy Breaking through But sometimes It’s just the only thing to do It’s never easy Breaking through But sometimes It’s just the only thing to do

Dear Janet 03:02
Dear Janet I didn’t plan it It was just a mistake The kind we all could make You know I’m not that smart Got your best interests at heart What’s done is done, what’s said is said And now I’ve got you stuck in my head Oh Janet I didn’t plan it I just fell into a trap We’ve all done that I still have your coffee cup I haven’t even washed it up It smells of you, it tastes of you What is left that I can do? Oh Janet Dear Janet Dear Janet Oh Janet Dear Janet My words can’t span it My feelings for you It’s almost untrue Every time I see you my heart sinks I don’t know what my girlfriend thinks I think I’m running out of time I was the one who stole the washing from your line Dear Janet Dear Janet Oh Janet I’m watching you now as I write this note I can barely keep myself afloat Sorry to keep going on and on But by the time you read this, I’ll be gone Oh Janet

Sometimes just leaving the house Can have such a profound affect on me I go out But I can’t find my feet Sometimes I can’t make it out I resign to stay put, stay here I can’t move All I feel is fear Feel Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel the fear Sometimes just being without you Can cripple my sense of confidence I fall deep And it doesn’t make sense Sometimes my thoughts get dark And it leads me somewhere I don’t wanna be near I stay still All I can feel is fear Feel Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel Feel the fear Feel the fear Feel the fear
