Track Name: I Am
I Am

I know it’s you. That feels like this
The questions the answers, the right to exist
The hope & the passion, the will to go on
The difference between all that is right & what’s wrongI

I turn & I see you looking at me
And I smile but you frown in my direction
I’m walking alone, over the sea & the stone
After death there will be no resurrection

I’m feeling it to, I’m feeling like you
I’ll hold your hand if you have no objection
Look in my eyes, look in my soul
There’s never a lie & there’s no exception
Track Name: I Was a Child
I Was A Child
I was a child, doing what children did, I did what children do
I wanted to talk like you, walk like you, think like what you do
I wanted dress like you, have friends like you, drive & swear like you do
I was a child, doing what children did, I did what children do
I looked up to you, I looked to you, I looked at what you did & everything that you do
I wanted to grow like you, work like you, laugh like you, be everything that you do
I was a child, doing what children did, I did what children do
I was a child, doing what children did, I did what children do

Emulation, Imitation, watching, listening, infatuation
Never quite right, never quite wrong but learning, copying you all along
Emulation, Imitation, watching, listening, infatuation
Never quite right, never quite wrong but learning, copying you all along
Tears & laughter, smiles & fear, living & learning year on year.

Intoxication, Violation, example set, vindication
Track Name: Freedom
Freedom
Freedom from politics
Freedom from rules
Freedom from wisdom
The wisdom of fools
Freedom from the corruption
Freedom from the greed
Freedom from the poverty
For people in need

Freedom from dishonesty
Freedom from lies
Freedom from charlatans
Manipulating lives
Freedom from the war
Freedom from the blood
Blood spilled in anger
???

Freedom for the innocents
Freedom for the wives
For the children, the fathers
Just living their lives
Freedom from anger
Freedom from pain
Freedom from persecution
Again & again

Freedom for the exploited
The oppressed, the maimed
Freedom for the unfortunates
Excluded & shamed
Freedom from oppression
Freedom from class
Freedom from prejudice
In all it’s excess

Freedom from divinity
From rules from above
Freedom from murder
In the name of gods love
Freedom from the power
Freedom from the glory
Freedom from the books
Telling the same old story

Freedom for expression
For the good & the true
Freedom to state
The full extent of the news
Freedom from media
Written to misguide
Freedom, freedom
To live a good life.
Track Name: A Man is Only as Good as His Word
A Man is only as Good as His Word

I hear your words
But what do they really say
Is there any truth from your mouth
Or are lies the way you play
Did you mean it in the moment
Do you mean it when you say
You are going to do something
Before going on your way

A man is only as good as his word
And the word is only as good as the man
And your word is your bond
To honour it you should do all that you can
You might do whatever you want to
And if you think you want to, you probably can
But a man is only as good as his word
The word only as good as the man.

When people trust your every word
When people depend on you day to day
Do you mean you want to go
When you say you want to stay
Is the voice that comes out of your mouth
Worth anything at all
When you say you are with us
Where are you when we fall

Trust can be easily given
When truly it should be earned
And when it is offered
It should never be scorned & spurned
Words they can seem to mean so much
When they are worth nothing at all
Depends on who spoke them
Is the man worthy, or is he worth nothing at all

Everything we do it makes a difference
Some of it big & some is small
But keep your word to the one’s that trust you
Or you are worth nothing at all.

You’ve got to try, to be as good as you say you are
