See the truth now Believe in you and try and try Win through because of what you do, don’t fail through someone else An even hand is fallacy, so play the cards you’re dealt Advantage is subjective, it’s you that holds you back Forget where you came in from and learn to dodge the flack I depend on me Define my destiny You depend on you Can’t hide it, Can’t fight it Sink or swim Spread your wings and fly... and fly... Slander gets you nowhere, scowl through knitted brows Despair gives way to bitterness and Envy brings you down Understand you have control and forge your unique path Take the reins, forget the blame, and build a strength that lasts I depend on me Define my destiny You depend on you Can’t hide it, Can’t fight it

Ma’at You, I never wanted You, I didn’t need The shining markets, the call to prayer Murky, hazy hellhole Streets of dust and sleaze The sacred river, the Valley of Kings Seeing what I wanted Perspective preconceived Sodium Sunrise Silver gleaming on the Nile Silver gleaming on the Nile Fight to find a heaven, or choose to live in hell Keep drowning in self pity, or climb the citadel You, I never wanted. You, I didn’t need The memories of thousands of years Halfway round the planet No reason I could see The monuments to ancient Gods I was biased from the outset Images believed Sodium, it’s all sodium

We don’t drink tea and we’re all out of sympathy Get over yourself Get over yourself You won’t get rich by counting your neighbours wealth Grab hold of yourself. Grab hold of yourself Constant projection is destroying your mental health Jealousy eats your heart out Drains the life from your veins Lost and disbelieving why your cycle is sustained Jealousy eats your heart out Drains the life from your veins Battle through the heartache, and break away the chains Make a new life for yourself Make a whole world full of wealth Get over yourself Get over yourself You won’t get rich by counting your neighbours wealth Get after yourself Get after yourself Don’t live your whole life wishing you were someone else Get over yourself Get over yourself You won’t get rich by counting your neighbours wealth Get after yourself Get after yourself Drop by drop the jealousy starts to melt

Always Hope 05:04
Careful who you listen to, beware of what they say Don’t let them snap your spirit, with troubles of the day The news that’s spread is dark, the tales that’s told so bleak What’s the point in going on? It makes you feel so weak The sun will rise again - There’s always hope Stars are shining bright - There’s always hope The world goes on in spite - There’s always hope The tide will turn tonight Sideline all the negatives, that serve to bring you down Bombarding all your senses, as bad news does the rounds Find a better circle who make you feel alive Inspired and enlightened to try and try and try Can’t burn it Can’t block it There is Always Hope Can’t bruise it Can’t break it There is Always Hope

No Victim 04:23
Say what you want to say I choose to sink or swim And I choose to listen anyway Or whether to let the words in Shaped by my experience Forged by what I’ve seen Triumph through adversity Building my own scene No victim, no blame No anger, no shame Overcome through change No victim, no shame Think what you want to think Though I choose to disagree I respect your rights to think that way But your words say nothing to me Hardships only temporary Pain comes fore relief Deciding my own future Changing my beliefs. I need fire I need pain I need some destruction I need the tools of change
6.
Words softly spoken Dreams quickly broken Memories fade into dust Liberties taken, chances forsaken Resigned to a life of mistrust Manipulation Pure suspicion Same prediction Worse affliction Hope gently dying, swiftly stop trying Future now slipping away Got to believe, to try and conceive An end to the longest day Find conviction Lose preconception Feel elevation Follow temptation Now, take my hand through the fire We’ll be stronger than anyone We’ll be stronger than anyone
7.
Magnificent 03:14
I don’t get the normal way No synergy with day to day Humanity feels so weak Not much is unique But I get you I don’t see the point of much Feels distant and out of touch Not driven or inspired No need to be admired But I see you Magnificent It’s magnificent Somehow you see through to my core Magnificent Just magnificent Today, tomorrow and for evermore I don’t often feel alive Disconnected deep inside No shattering insight A failure to ignite But I feel you I don’t read the social cues Missing things, I wish I knew Often feeling shame Frustrating guessing game But I read you
8.
Not For Me 03:41
Right is right and left is left No time to catch that second breath Straightforward, straight at No point to chit chat Know who I am What it means to me Who I am You’re not for me Knocked down and thrown around Way off track, and dumfound If you’re the lock, I’ve lost my key It’s who I am, and it works for me Failed attempts at fitting in Social nightmares, bargaining Hearing words that don’t make sense Distracted by your evidence Knowing that this isn’t me Terrified of what might be Breaking through not breaking down Bring it home and bring it round
9.
Another Way 04:54
So wronged, tied to my convictions Dwelling on blame, time and again So lost, can’t find reasons Left to the flames, time and again With spite, seeking out targets Feel my blood drain, time and again Blind to all rhyme, deaf to all reason Paralysed by pain, time and again All I know is I don't want to feel like this again All I know is I’m burning out my heart again Find another way There must be another way Another way There must be another way No truth, self-serving story Masking my shame, time and again Blown minds, discarded opinions Cut against the grain, time and again
10.
We’ve fought a thousand wars No change, win, lose or draw Repeating time again But nothing matters in the end No, nothing matters in the end Love is the answer Hate tears you apart Love is the answer Come out from the dark Love is the answer And speak from the heart We’ve voted and elected Our promises rejected Outsourced our hope again But nothing matters in the end No, nothing matters in the end Quick to react and to retaliate Bound through a life sentence of hate No empathy, respect or master plan Humanity lost to a spiritual quicksand
