Track Name: Innocent (La La Lie)
La La Lie (x8)

They're watching me, they're watching me, they're watching me.
It used to be innocent until proven guilty.

It used to be, it used to be, it used to be,
self-evident that we were born free.

Can't you see the level of hypocrisy?
You make it impossible for us to agree.

'cause I am a citizen, not your enemy.
Not your enemy, no.

La La Lie (x4)

We don't have the answers so stop asking me.
Your questions are driving me to insanity.

If you will not recognise our liberties,
why should we recognise your authority?

We all see, yeah we all see this third degree
You try to be giving us invisibly.

Watching me, they're watching me, you're watching me.
It used to be innocent until proven guilty.

La La Lie (x8)
Track Name: Hurt Me So
You hurt me so, why I'm never enough for you.
You hurt me so, why I'm never enough for you.
Why I'm never enough for you - it hurt me so.

This fire me - how it burns when I look at you.
You know this fire in me - how it burns when I look at you.
It burns when I look at you - this fire in me.
Track Name: Where the Wires Cross
Take up all of the songs that others sung to you.
If you recall a single line or two, or you take joy in aspiring...

Sing out all of the tunes from childhood innocence.
Maybe they harmonise the dissonance of neurons misfiring.

Anywhere, any time, any place where the wires cross
I fear for a thickening fog.

Mother, nothing has changed amongst the ones you love,
save for the faith in he from up above who will not stop the fading.

Brothers, nothing will change without us crying out.
Just to be heard above the drowning out of memories worth saving.

Anywhere, any time, any place where the wires cross
I fear for a thickening fog.
Track Name: Unite
We all feel a seed is sown.
We all feel an anger grow.
Where did all the money go?

Living uniform routine.
Just another cog in the machine.
Paying off your childhood dreams.

Living in a town you know,
a shadow of itself from long ago.
Where did all the money go?

Looking for a blame to pass.
schooled by a lock-stock-trading class,
never to be taken to task.

Desire to divide and shame.
A want to pour petrol on the flames,
and then to shout 'never in my name.'

We are generation rent.
We will not endorse this government.
We are the 48%.

Brothers and sisters unite in love.
