Track Name: Space
[ Verse 1 ]

I grew up hatin’ rural isolation,
There was too much space to catch the dreams I was chasin’
Sick and tired of waitin’ on instant gratification
Age and patience taught me brand new appreciation
For all the freedom that our nation has been taking for granted
Now I want to leave a positive impact on the planet
Lend a hand, take a stand, become a Good Samaritan
A step by step plan to be a better man

[ Chorus (x2) ]

The Space between us, separates me from you
The Space between us, just breaks me in two

[ Verse 2 ]

Hopin’ to get my third eye open but the peace has been broken
Vile words have been spoken to defile this sacred space
You laid waste to my private meditative place
And your token offering of remorse
Won’t reverse the curses course
Invoked with such force, distorts my positive thoughts
Corrupting them and turning them to cutting retorts

[ Chorus (x2) ]

The Space between us, separates me from you
The Space between us, just breaks me in two

[ Verse 3 ]

I want you to know you’re always welcome here
And when you’re trying to escape the fears you can’t face
You need a sanctuary and I got a safe place
From the demons that are buried deep within your headspace
You can’t erase the dark paths of your past
But you can replace the broken parts of your heart with love and hope
Then your ready to restart - mentally steady and emotionally smart.

[ Bridge (x2) ]

Bridges burned, lessons learned, never past the point of no return
Bridges burned, lessons learned, never past the point of no return

[ Chorus (x2) ]

The Space between us, the Space between us
The Space between us, separates me from you
The Space between us, the Space between us
The Space between us, just breaks me in two

The Space between us
Track Name: Last House On The Hill
[ Intro ]

There’s a hill with a house built at its peak
It’s filled with the weak and incredibly meek
To them the truth isn’t something they seek
Its what they run from every day of the week
And when they speak it’s in the language of deceit
Their feet walk in circles, they’re cursed to repeat
Freaks, geeks and tweakers
Sitting amongst stolen stereo speakers

[ Verse 1 ]

Hello, my name is Craig and the world is out to get me
Everyone I haven’t met yet is just another hidden enemy stealing my energy
And the voices in my head keep telling me to commit felony
But I keep telling myself I’m not crazy
No, I don’t need anyone to save me
But lately I’ve been wondering why you all hate me
Maybe in the land of the blind only those who’ve lost their minds can see
I bet you can’t find me

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Verse 2 ]

In a room steeped in a gloom so deep
You can’t tell if it’s day or night
Trevor lurks in his lair, hunched in his chair
Illuminated by digital light
Despite a mind like a diamond he’s frightened of the world outside
His ability to comprehend...
He knows he can’t survive
If he can’t depend on his technological friends

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Bridge ]

There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go (x2)

[ Verse 3 ]

Got a fear I can’t quite define and it’s trapped in the back of a crack addict mind
Track lines, snake down my arm
Wind their way through the marks of self harm and pharmaceutical abuse
Just another of my vigorous pursuits
No excuses here, I’m seeing things clear
And the voices Craig hears tell me: “there’s nothing to fear my dear, nothing to fear.”

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Verse 4 ]

This is Channel Bevan News reporting for all of yous
Who can’t be here at the scene of another house of broken dreams
The Council is trying to take it back
From a group of no-hope teens who slipped through the cracks
The facts that we know, they refuse to go
But they’ve made no demands won’t negotiate with the man
We understand this, they want us to cease and desist,
Their resistance stems from a wish to exist.

[ Bridge (x2)]

There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
Track Name: Heavy Hearted
[ Verse 1 ]

Heavy hearted I started to sink so I cast my doubts into the drink
To see what people out there think, and if anyone else is close to the brink
Seems we all got chinks in our armour, all trying to disarm Karma
Charm her into reducing life’s drama or palm her off,
Postpone the moment that penny drops
No time to stop and take stop
Too busy swimming in the melting pot and the waters getting hot
Too focused on what we’re not to appreciate what we’ve got
Propped up on a wobbling crutch
Not thinking much and clutching at straws, rebels without a cause
Not sure what we’re fighting for
Wondering why we’re fighting at all
Wondering why we’re fighting at all
Wondering why, we fight

[ Chorus (x2) ]

When you know what you mean, it’ll set you free
When you know what you need, it’ll set you free

[ Verse 2 ]

With doubt thrown out, my heaviness lessened
No more stressing, second guessing pointless questions
No direction, no momentum
Started paying attention to the lessons all around me
That’s how my inspiration found me
Wound me up, set me fee
Helped me find the guy I was trying to be

[ Chrous (x2) ]

When you know what you mean, it’ll set you free
When you know what you need, it’ll set you free

[ Bridge ]

Who are you trying to be, Who are you trying to be?
Who are you trying to be, Who are you trying to be?

[ Outro (x3) ]

I’m tired of being the guy that looks the other way, said
I’m tired of being the person who agrees with what you say
Sick and tired of feeling like all I can do is pray
Decided I’ll go searching for a brand new day
Track Name: Bad Day
[ Verse 1 ]

Waken up, starting my day a little shaken up
Taken apart and put back together
Like the birds of a feather duck down
Doona wrapped round my head
Yet another day I don’t want to get out of bed
I’d like to stay and hide inside instead
I’m finding mouldy bread with nothing to spread for breakfast
Yet another tick on my shit day checklist
Check this, Shirt’s crushed, getting dressed in a rush
Eff this, Getting breathless while I’m chasin’ the bus
Reckless, now the driver won’t stop makin’ a fuss
‘You better guess again son, you ain’t riding with us’

[ Chorus (x2) ]

A bad day is just a point of view, don’t let it get the better of you
Out with the old and in with the new, find a ray of hope to hold on to

[ Verse 2 ]

Takin’ time breakin’ and remakin’ major hates of mine
Tainted states of mind redefined or needing redesign
Read between the lines, realign and reassign my eyes
Make my aggravation into blessings in disguise
Well I try, but in the end it’s easier said than done
Staying high, when you’re down on your luck and having a difficult run
Seeing skies filled with rainbows when the clouds are blocking the sun
My third eye starting to find the signs of positive things to come

[ Bridge ]

Got no reason, to be so mad. Got no reason to be so sad
Got no reason yeah, to be so mad. Got no reason to be so sad

[ Chorus (x2) ]

A bad day’s just a point of view, don’t let it get the better of you
Out with the old and in with the new, find a ray of hope to hold on to
Track Name: Unit(E)
[ Chorus ]

U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, We want you in our community
U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, We want you to get funky

[ Verse 1 ]

Let the universe try to do its worst
I’m in a bubble that trouble can’t burst
Reverse the curse by puttin’ the music first
That’s how we get the negative energy to disperse
Put your best foot first, start gettin’ ahead of the curve
Manifest your destiny it’s time to earn what you deserve
You’re too reserved so work up your nerve
You’re identity is meant to be something you preserve

[ Chorus (x2) ]

U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, We want you in our community

[ Verse 2 ]

Hearts and minds aligned define the art
We ignite the spark that lights the dark
It starts by uniting all the separate parts
Together we achieve what each of us can’t
Cos we all got a little light to shine
And when our little bit of light combine
We illuminate the gloomiest minds
If you knew me you’d find I’m just like you
Is everybody feeling Vaguely Human too?
You know you’re all a part of the human crew
So kick back relax and keep doing what you do,
Kick back relax and keep doing what you do
Kick back relax - we’re bringing unity to you

[ Chorus ]

U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, We want you in our community
U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, Everyone break it down with me

[ Bridge ]

You and Me equals WE
Universal unity

[ Verse 3 ]

We used to possess effective methods to connect
Way before they invented internet
We had extra senses and dimensions to detect
Shared an empathy we’re starting to forget
And yet buried deep down, hidden underground
Latent tribal instincts lying waiting to be found
Just hear that beat pound, follow your feet now
Sink into the rhythm and surrender to the sound
Remember we’re surrounded by friendly energy and no one has the time to be fighting our enemies
It’s meant to be spent unifying humanity and each of us can extend the reach of our family tree
Sneak a peek a unique similarity
I want you to meet universal diversity
I want you to see both the best and the worst in me
I want you to know I forgive you for hurting me

[ Chorus ]

U-N-I-T-E; Vaguely Human bringing unity
U-N-I-T-E, We want you in our community
U-N-I-T-E, U-N-I-T-E, U-N-I-T-E, You and I
Track Name: Walk Proud
[ Chorus ]

Walk Proud, Talk Loud.
Never be afraid to stand out in the crowd
Don’t be shaken down, taken down; prove they’ve mistaken now
Never be afraid to stand out in the crowd

[ Verse 1 ]

I wonder what the future holds besides growing up, besides growing old
And I’ve always been told - dreams can’t be bought or sold so be bold
Break the mould don’t go back to the fold, because all that glitters isn’t gold
I won’t be controlled by my doubts and fears as I roll on down the years
But where do I go from here? I’ve outgrown
Everything I’ve known became a stranger in a place I called my home,
Then I heard about manifest destiny, time I learned what life can manifest for me
Time I learned what life can manifest for me

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Walk Proud, Talk Loud.
Never be afraid to stand out in the crowd
Don’t be shaken down, taken down; prove they’ve mistaken now
Never be afraid to stand out in the crowd

[ Verse 2 ]

I reject regret, if this is the only life I get
I haven’t quite got it all figured out yet but there’s nothing in it I want to forget
In the end hurt turns to learning, new things grow from the dirt
I bury my skeletons and when things end I find beginnings again
Everything is renewed and begins a new
Somewhere and some when, old foes and new friends
We can’t forget them, or let them slip away
Pay respect to the things they say
At the end of the day, all trying to find our own way, all trying to find our own way home
