Track Name: the madness of it all
think I'm going mad
think I'm going mad
every I had disappears

fingers point at me
fingers point at me
point this out three more point at me

I got left behind
I got left behind
left my body but they took my mind

think I'm paranoid
think I'm paranoid
don't get me annoyed, I'm not paranoid
Track Name: a great wave of grief
I can see them run
nowhere to hide
I can see a lorry
in with the tide

how many have died
how many have died?

see the towers fall
nowhere to hide.
how many good men
where working inside?

how many died?
how many died?

I can see the plane
I can see a wave
bombing towards me
who’s going save me?

I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die...
Track Name: Chinooks
I grew up in a war zone
the army jumped out of chinooks
into car bombs
and every night onour TV
it was the IRA vs the RUC

I grew up in the shadow
of a balaclaved man in the hedgerow
and every night you went to bed
in the morning another man dead

I grew up on the right side
we told the truth, they lied
what could ever heal those wrongs?
what could make us get along?
what could make the hatred gone?
Track Name: my heart's broken down
yes I’m hurt, yes I’m hurt
and I can’t make it work
my heart’s broken down

trying my best
but the engine’s a mess
my heart’s broken down
I can’t get to town
been walking around

seeing your face
but I can’t leave the place
my heart’s broken down

I can’t buy a car
can’t travel far
my heart’s broken down

nowhere to run
can’t get no fun
my heart’s broken down
can’t get to town
walking aound
feeling low
nowhere to go
soaked in the snow
can’t find my flow
can’t say no...
Track Name: a bad Dad?
what kind of dad gives the son a rock when he asks for bread?
what kind of dad gives the son a snake when he asks for fish?
a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad
a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad?

what kind of dad gives the son a shock when he asks for care?
what kind of dad gives the son a belt for faithful prayers?
a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad?
a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad?
a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad a bad dad?
