Space 03:29
[ 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

[ 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

[ 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

Bad Day 02:48
[ 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

Unit(E) 04:25
[ 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

Walk Proud 05:53
[ 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
