This government had an idea And parliament made it law It seems like it's illegal To fight for the union any more Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? We set out to join the picket line For together we cannot fail We got stopped by police at the county line They said, "Go home boys or you're going to jail" Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? I'm Going to make it right I'm Off to choose my side I'm going to make it right Or else ill lose my mind It's hard to explain to a crying child Why her Daddy can't go back So the family suffer But it hurts me more To hear a scab say Sod you, Jack Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? Which side are you on, boys Which side are you on? I'm bound to follow my conscience And do whatever I can But it'll take much more than the union law To knock the fight out of a working man Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? Which side are you on, boys? Which side are you on? I'm Going to make it right I'm Off to choose my side I'm going to make it right Or else ill lose my mind

Play for keeps and take your place there is no purpose there is nothing to gain Why you telling yourself it's not okay Question everything your told erase your head now lose control I'm still telling myself it's not okay As we march in circles waiting for change Throw away your crystal ball the future lies within us all No ones listening now it's all a mistake get out of my head Mr. Consequence You're no longer needed it's too soon to forget, No ones listening now to what you have to say. As we march in circles waiting for change. Kumbaya someone's laughing, Kumbaya someone's crying, Kumbaya someone's praying, Kumbaya I am singing. Demand respect with a microphone pay attention to me do as your told I'm afraid to think of what you might say The truth will come your ears will bleed the stories you tell me of tragedy I'm afraid to blink I'm living day to day As we march in circles waiting for change It's one more happy ending please I'm begging you God I'm on my knees Why are you telling yourself it's not okay The story was over this song was sung I did the best the best that I could I'm still telling myself it's not okay As we march in circles waiting for change.

No More 04:01
It's too much to much I'm calling It's too little to late to hide I wont be the one that falling left behind I see what no ones seeing there is no shame no shame to fight Take a look the earth is bleeding worlds collide. No more make war, tell me what you're fighting for The bridges will burn the point of no return Make war no more tell me who's keeping score, The bridges will burn the point of no return. You're in no condition to tell me what it's all about The life that we are wasting walk so proud. Should I say what no ones saying listen up as I keep quiet Take a look the earth is still bleeding worlds collide. Promise me it's not going to end this way Today is not going to be the day.

Nobody knows I never intended to go show me the roads where I shall roam I will survive I will survive the night Down below under the earth the sun the sky the moon Rise to the east the sun will prove I have survived the night I have survived the night. Free from you I am certain I am free from truth Run for your life but leave no clues No one can find no one can find what's mine It's a hard hard life I wont compromise It's a hard hard life we're running out of time Surround me and take a look for yourself the human race Not even you no one is safe We try and we try we try to place the blame When nothings as it seems open your eyes only to see The best things in life they do come free We buy and we buy there is nothing I don't need Congratulations son you proved me wrong job well done Follow your heart it leads to love I am alive my god I'm alive it's right. Leave it all behind leave it all behind walk away.

You Can Run 05:29
Educate intimidate each story has two sides Black gold take control, did you read between the lines Under penalty of perjury you signed away your rights You're nothing more so settle the score the numbers never lie There is no where left to go do or die You talk the talk can you walk the walk Actions speak louder the words Gather the men to sell them the plans no ones the wiser I'm sure Duty calls lets have a ball the time of our life what's yours I appreciate if you'd open the gates, one by one will burn There is no where left to go do or die I will stand beside you, together we will unite Their all out to get you you can run but you can't hide When 9 to 5 is not enough to survive It was all for nothing I've learned Collect your check from the government to the end of the line good sir You're on your own worked to the bone walk right into their trap With temptation comes greed, hungry mouths to feed everyones under attack Hope you had your fun pick up your guns, there's nothing left to confess Give your wife a kiss say good bye to the kids save your prayers save your breath You belong to me your my property the only way out is death. When their is no where left to go do or die.

Oh babe, don't lie lonesome after I'm gone Don't mourn your young life away Just lower me down with a prayer and a song Just 'fore the breaking of day Just 'fore the breaking of day It's a life worth the living, but we all have to die All your crying won't do me no good Lower me down with a quick said goodbye Pour in the black Texas mud Pour in the black Texas mud It's a hard road you're travelin', you can't walk it alone Find a big man to stand beside you Take him down to the river please show him my bones Tell him, there lies a friend I once knew There lies a friend I once knew The black crow's a-screaming, the yellow sun's warm The grass tumbles tall down the hill There's a cold wind is blowing, it's bringin' a storm When the call of the black crow goes still When the call of the black crow goes still

Dear God what have I done it's all gone wrong Blame me no one needs to suffer this long It's to late wouldn't you know it's misunderstood If I could change it all you know that I would Tell me why you wont look in my eyes Tell me why the earth she cries Aim high get low who are you going to tell Did you pay the price I don't need your help I knew all along tomorrows not gone Move fast prepare yourself here we come Take me anywhere but here it's fine Anywhere but here is alright Break free come clean when push comes to shove No one seems to know what your running from I can't help myself it must be nice To live unaware now is not the time We are not losing touch it's sink or swim only the strong survive I hope you're not him Dear God what have I done, Tell me who is the guilty one Dear God it's all gone it's all wrong it's all done.

No I don't know how he knows but the devil surely knows my name Now I'll go and rest my bones, find my certain fate At war for my soul with a heart of gold no ones here to say Three kind words now I'm pure I'll rest in peace Go Away go away I'm afraid it's time to go I want to stay I want to stay it's to late I want your soul What's your fate? Take your final breath alone with death now were face to face Awaken my soul to each his own on Judgement day Hold your crucifix in the fiery pits heaven in hells domain Original sin tell me who is going to win my eternal flame Free I am free I am free I'm not everybody Please please believe I am me I'm not anybody.

In the Night 06:12
Don't go home all is quiet in the night We wont go down with out a fight Bite your tongue all is silent in the night Hold my hand bring me to life It is oh so cold I am naked in the night It is oh so cold I am forsaken in the night You left me with out a light Don't let go hold on to me I wont let go hold on to me Don't let go hold on to me I wont let go hold on to me I wont. Meet me here let no one see you in the light Come alone we'll make things right Don't go home all is quiet in the night We wont go down with out a fight

It's man versus man come back tomorrow lets do this again Lets rape this this land take what we want with out consequence What's your master plan the future begins it ends with him Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand You keep coming back only to hear the devil she laughs Lets face the facts it takes one to know one lets leave it at that Recognize the past her story repeats as the cycle begins Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand Take as you please, I want it It's more then you will ever need, don't tempt me Take it away all this greed you put in my head Divided in half split it in two from first to last An equal chance take your share move onto the next There's nothing left devour it all put it all to a rest Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand The Alpha male is dead, it's all in my head.

So here I am where will you be as I wait for the man to come set me free Now we wait how much longer for this man you said walked on water Don't walk away On my grave is where I stand I'm looking down at the promised land I bid farewell on Judgement day I will be brave I hear the angels sing All the angels sing Hallelujah with death my birth has come, hallelujah The hours come there is no escape I walk alone I wont be late Will you see me off as I leave there is no need to worry I have made my peace I made my peace Can you please remember me I found my man he sets me free We're hand in hand as we walk away I'm coming home now I will sing I will sing Hallelujah with death my birth has come
