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)

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

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)

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

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

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
