Track Name: We Will Rise
We Will Rise

A midnight romance tragedy
he loves her but she can't love him
it all falls down to cause and effect
as he wipes her name off his chest

well it all began some other place
with the introduction of their names
they couldn't believe what was happening
or how they felt

(Chorus)
but when the pain rises
we must not fill with shame
for together through unity
we will rise

well he asks himself the questions again
was it circumstance or man
that leads us here to the same situation
again
and again
again and
again

(Chorus)

beneath the sword of Damocles
they must conquer all of their fears
or jade eyes will be beaten to blue
and all will be lost
lost

(Chorus)
Track Name: That Deafening Sound Of Summer
That Deafening Sound Of Summer
(Steve Towson)

The clouds are building around here again
And I think it could be a chance for some rain
I think it might make a nice change
Cause it's been hot and dry here for so long
Yeah it's been hot and dry here for so long

That deafening sound of summer has returned
And the molasses smell as the sugar cane burns
The thrill and the fear of a heavy downpour
And getting stuck on the highway in the middle of jack all
And getting stuck on the highway in the middle of jack all

Getting drunk and waking up with a lobstered skin
From the gap in the curtain where the sun scorched in
Making love in a pool of sweat at 2am
And hearing radio songs about Christmas and snow
We're singing songs about places we will never know
We're singing songs about places we will never go
Track Name: Coal Country Love Song
Coal Country Love Song
(Steve Towson)

All of these lonely times
I've been waiting here
Waiting for something to change
Again

(Chorus)
But those trains keep coming
All through the night
The wheels they scream and the windows rattle
All through the night

I held her hand firmly in mine
Caught her smile said I do
Tears began welling in my eyes
And I whispered I'm in love with you

(Chorus)

But progress progress it comes in so many forms
Tell me why
Does it have to be
The one that favours the wealthy and the powerful
Oh I'm so glad, I'm so glad I'm not alone
And you're here with me

Black gold is so easy to come by
Silence not so much anymore
The day when we first moved into our dream
Became a nightmare lasting too long

(Chorus)
Track Name: Hearts And Flowers
Hearts and Flowers
(Mark Callaghan)

All those crosses on your lounge room wall
are not the kind of thing that I can ignore
when there's death and there's destruction
when there's starvation and plague
put your hand into your pocket
do you give or do you take

only you
send me hearts and flowers again
only you
send me hearts and flowers again
when there's nothing left to say
and there's little left to do
when there's nothing

All those patterns in your lino floor
that hint of religion in your kitchen decor
you've lost your way again
you're guilty and you know it
for that little gift of guidance is a random just the same

only you
send me hearts and flowers again
only you
send me hearts and flowers again
when there's nothing left to say
and there's little left to do
when there's nothing
Track Name: As Your Light Fades The Darkness Screams
As Your Light Fades The Darkness Screams
(Steve Towson)


your master is ready to feed
and it is you who are his next victim
and no amount how you beg or you plead
will satisfy what drives within
but theres no reason to cry
for this is not how it will end
so cease with your sentence there are no good byes
for you time is irrelevant
as the sun sets on your evening sky

so your lesson
it begins
into the state of forced humility
when the Klan calls you will do the bastards deeds
as your light fades the darkness screams

and all your violence
you know it dont change a thing
for all your desire to divide and conquer
only makes you one of the enemy
so repent your crimes as I draw my stake
over all you control and all your command
and as you slide into eternal night

so your lesson
it begins
into the state of forced humility
when the Klan calls you will do the bastards deeds
as your light fades the darkness screams
Track Name: I'm Gonna Do It All Over Again
Been so long since I've seen my friends
hey hey hey
All day long working for no pay
hey hey hey

(chorus)
Saturday
I'm a little hung over but I feel alright
Next Friday night
I'm gonna do it all over again

Well it's a bottle of bourbon and a bottle of coke
hey hey hey
You grab the ice and I'll grab the smoke
hey hey hey

(Chorus)

Third verse, same as the first
Been so long since I've seen my friends
hey hey hey
All day long working for no pay
hey hey hey

(Chorus)
Track Name: Blood Is Red
Blood Is Red
(Steve Towson)

I AM ME
I can not be
your
surreal currency
or your frivolous credit cards
for I AM ME

I am flesh
Flesh which feels
not some
electrical impulse
on an artificial circuit board
FOR I AM ME

BLOOD IS RED
RED
