Track Name: React (Full Version)
REACT

I'm so tired...
and I've tried...
and I've lied.

Given my time in the sun.
Living so nothing would show.
Waiting for all who were outside to know,
but why can't you see, why can't you tell
all the secrets inside of me?

I'd give to you, anything
and take all the time to know.
Doesn't seem fair we can hide from this love
given that I won't survive-
I'll never show - Never know.

But I cannot take all this time all alone
and I don't know where I will turn.
Tell me what hides in your eyes.
Tell me that I'm not blind.

After all-
After it's done-
How could I be -
Anyone or Anything?

How can I - react to this?
Track Name: Do It All
DO IT ALL

When there's darkness all around you
and you cannot see the sun
and when hopelessness surrounds you]
and your instinct is to run
when this pretentious intro's over
and you need a bit of fun (fun,fun,fun,fun,fun,fun)

So get up off your ass
get out of your chair cos
the party has just begun...

Time to make a difference here
Help your fellow man
Got a song I wanna share
Sing it if you can

Well the tune don’t matter
and the words don’t rhyme
and the beat only hits the rhythm
some of the time
so grab a friend, a taco, a bottle of wine
and we can do it all.

Throw your hands around the world
Tell them that you care
Wrap your arms around them all
Show them we’re aware

I understand, strictly speaking
You may not be compliant
If you could you’d have to have the arms
Of some kind of giant
But metaphorically
I know that you can see (that)
We can do it all.

Let’s do it all
There’s more to life than
simply staring at a screen
just do it all
just take a look around you
you’ll see what I mean

but what you’re gonna see
is full of irony
this song itself was made by days
in front of a P.C.

But come and join us all
In answer to the call
To put your hands around the world
And do it all.

You may think there’s nothing of
A difference you could make.
But one less burger, one less fries
Is all that it would take

So give it up for a day
And we’ll make you a promise
Take the cash and donate
Just not to MacDonald’s

Get your purse, get your card
Get your bag, get your wallet
And you can do it all

(instrumentals)

(Let’s give it all)
Just look inside your heart
And you’ll know what to do
(don’t leave us all)
To count on someone else,
It’s really up to you

Lets do a little more
(for) the one’s we’re giving for
The sad, the poor, the hungry
Too easy to ignore

It’s time to put an end
To poverty and then
(we’ll) put our hands around the world
And do it all

So put your hands around the world…
...Hands Around The World (x 8)

...and Do It All!

Track Name: A Nation's Journey Into Light
A Nation's Journey Into Light
------------------------------------

Come now, gather now, here where the heather grows,
the land our Father's knew that we called home.
Ta'en now, hurried now, off tae another land
the burning in our hearts - to fear the unknown.

We've all gone - Ocean's wide - off to the other side
the wilds of America, empty and bare
the sailors are prison guards, their eyes are dead and hard
there's no compassion when our children cry

The waters take away the dead seem more each day
we wonder silently, 'Can we survive?'
The cold wind and the sea, it draws the life from me
we don't know if we'll end this journey alive.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Came from the sea, cross the land,
from the mountains, to our homes,
to the plains, to our broad ancient hunting ground
and took;
all we had, took our homes,
took our children and our wives,
took our land - brought us fear,
brought us sickness, brought us death.
Took our hope, as they stole from us everything
the white of their skin turning red]
with the blood of many braves
walked us on
from our homes
and now all we have's;
The sky and The earth and The water, our memory and pride

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

See the sand fall to the ocean.
See the sun climb in the sky.
All we need is here in plenty
(Oh, oh in Africa)

Take the beasts as we go hunting.
Pluck the fruit down from the tree.
We have all that we desire
(Oh, oh in Africa)

Stretching out upon the grassland
Resting now from all our toil
in the shade of leafy branches
(Oh, oh in Africa)

Comes a boat out on the ocean
High and wide it's sails unfurled
We have never seen its equal
(Oh, oh in Africa)

Watch the men as they approach us
Skin so white and bright as pearls
They are bringing gifts and trinkets
(Oh, oh in Africa)

See the ropes and see the netting
we will trade for food and furs
we will welcome them in gladness
(Oh, oh to Africa)

We approach them at the water
grinning faces match our own
watch a new dawn rise upon us
(Oh, oh in Africa)

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Come now, gather now, here where the bullets fly,
the land our allies knew they called home.
Joined now, sailing now, off to the Gallic land,
the burning in our hearts to fear the unknown.

We've all gone, Channel's wide, off to the other side.
Our landings: Omaha, Gold and Sword.
We answer to the call and join this bloody war
and Death and Liberty are all our reward

Here now, running now, on tae the bloodied sand,
the gunfire taking down men by the score.
More now, hurry now, up tae the enemy.
The path to freedom lies behind our foe.

The waters crash on to the beach, it's body-strewn.
We wonder silently, 'Will we survive?'
Our rifles in our hand, we charge this foreign land
we don't know if we'll end this journey alive.

We don't know if we'll end this journey alive.
Track Name: It's Time...
It's Time

You always say "It's someone else" - but never say "It's me"
If you cant do what must be done, - then how the hell can we?

It's gotta come from everyone,
but no-one wants to know.
It's never so important,
til you die.

There has to be a reason now - an answer to our plea,
we gotta take the time to find - a cure to this disease.

It's gotta come from everyone,
but no-one wants to know .
Until they fall
never to return...

So all you gotta do is

take a look around you now
and help to do your part.
And try to make this world aware,
it's tearing lives apart.

It's gotta come from everyone
the hope we have in store.
We've won so many battles now
let's fight a little more.
So we can show the end is near
we've strength to win this war
and its... time.

We gotta do what we can do
cos its... time.

If we can do it so can you
and its... time.

To say that cancer can go screw
and its... time...
Track Name: Ye Jacobites
(chorus)
Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear, lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name your faults I will proclaim
Your doctrines I will blame, you shall hear, you shall hear.
Your doctrines I will blame, you shall hear.
---
What is right and what is wrong by the law, by the law
What is right and what is wrong by the law
What is right and what is wrong, a short sword or the long
A weak arm or a strong for to draw, for to draw.
A weak arm or a strong for to draw.

(chorus)

What makes heroic strife famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife, to whet the assassin's knife
Or hunt a parent's life with bloody war, bloody war.
Or hunt a parent's life with bloody war.

(chorus)

Then let your schemes alone in the state, in the state
Then let your schemes alone in the state.
Then let your schemes alone, adore the rising sun
And leave a man undone to his fate, to his fate.
And leave a man undone to his fate

(chorus)
