Track Name: Times of Trouble (Glasgow 2001)
In times of hardship you were always there
comforting soldifying your presence was always felt
In times when I cried myself to sleep it was always your shoulder I cried on

Where would I be if it weren't for you?
How would I have survived without you?
For you've been my rock, my crack, and hope
you've held me up when I began to fall

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground because you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me


And what could substitute for your love?
I doubt there is any drug strong enough
My base, my lover and bestfriend
Your whole life took a backseat for mine

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground cos you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me
Track Name: Too Late (Glasgow 2001)
Walking down the street today nothing means the same to me anymore
Looking round there's not a face a recognise here
People I used to love, Places I used to go they are all go
they are all gone

It's too late, too late
I left it too late
It's too late, too late
I left it too late


Emptiness can eat you up
soul searching that never stops
you don't know where you are until you are lost
this town used to home but it's not home anymore, it's nowhere

It's too late, far too late
I left it too late
It's too late, far too late
I left it too late

Left it too late, much too late
Track Name: Bad Guys (Glasgow 2001).
I felt a little disillusioned last night
Seems like the truth is something nobody wants to hear
How unfashionable it is to be honest
The latest craze is lying through your teeth


Why do the bad guys always seem to get it right?
Why do the bad guys always seem to win in real life?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?

It's like those people who tried to hurt you
just because you wanted a better way of life
you worked so hard to get where you wanted to be
but they worked even harder at tearing you apart


Why do the bad guys always seem to get it right?
Why do the bad guys always seem to win in real life?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Why do the bad guys always win?
Track Name: Grace Under Fire (Glasgow 2001)
Looks like an angel but acts like the devil
Grace is in a mood
could them blue eyes have seen more than they ever should

Oh Grace my angel why is life being cruel you
All the other children just torment you


Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Long blonde hair to hide that evil smile such look of innocence
but she is devil's child, oh she is devil's child

Oh grace sweet child I know you're endangered
but don't you think you should learn to love yourself
not hate yourself like you do



Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Yeah, Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
She is burning
Track Name: Starry Night (Glasgow 2001)
One night late in September
we all sat huddled close together
United round a fire admiring the starlite sky

Starry night, starry night, starry night
star starry night


We all thought that'd live forever
felt like gods watching over the world
had a sense of peace yet adventure
but over the years it seems to have disappeared


Starry night, starry night, starry night
star starry night

At the time we all felt like rebels
youth was on our side and we knew our cause was right
but look at us now
we just conform cos no cause is worth fighting over


Starry night, starry night, starry night
star starry night

Star starry night, starry night
Track Name: Illusion (Glasgow 2001)
Take your time
don't break my heart
be my illusion
my main substitution
My glue when I'm falling apart

Many years away from now I'll be able to thank-you
for believing in me when the rest couldn't or simply wouldn't

speak of this illusion you hold where the streets are paved with gold
Tell me how all dreams come true
Provide me with the illusion I seek
Speak of this illusion
show me this illusion
sell me the illusion
illusion I need

Take your time
don't break my heart
be my illusion
my main substitution
My glue when I'm falling apart

speak of this illusion you hold where the streets are paved with gold
Tell me how all dreams come true
Provide me with the illusion I seek

Speak of this illusion
show me this illusion
sell me the illusion
illusion I need
Track Name: Peaceful Protest (Glasgow 2001)
I wish you peace in this journey
if you could take a minute to read my sign
view the point that I'm making
how there is something so very wrong

Just look at the kid on the corner crying
Just look at the pain in that man's eyes
Just look at the people out there fighting
when there should peace, love, and trust

This is peaceful protest I don't wanna start no war
This is a peaceful protest I just wanna spread the word


This world could be a better place
This world could be a safer place
This world could be a happier place
This world should be a full of love

This is peaceful protest I don't wanna start no war
This is a peaceful protest I just wanna spread the word

This is peaceful protest I don't wanna start no war
This is a peaceful protest I just wanna spread the word
Track Name: Overtime (Glasgow 2001)
six in the morning and I've got to start work but I'm so damn tired
Don't get no sympathy from you cos you're too busy sleeping right now
Even the dog looks at me like I'm crazy, she thinks I should still be in bed
and right now that's exactly where i want to be

And I really need a holiday yeah yeah
Yeah I really need a holiday

This was supposed to be my holidays but I have to work again
This was my only day off but I've been called in
Please Mr Boss I have been loyal worker done my share of overtime
Do me favour and give me a day off real soon

Cos I really need a holiday yeah yeah
Yeah I really need a holiday
Yeah I really need a holiday
really need a holiday
Track Name: It's Not Fair (Glasgow 2001)
For a minute I thought you felt the same
but then you broke off your stare
and your introduced your new girlfriend

Her eyes blue and shine like diamonds
Her bank balance very near the millions
so how could I ever win your love?

It's not fair
It's not fair
Love is only for the beautiful and the wealthy
Love is only for those that can afford it
Love is only for the beautiful and the wealthy
Not me, not me

You'll never know how much I love you
You'll never know true love
You always go with the highest bidder
and that is what rules me out

It's not fair
It's not fair
Love is only for the beautiful and the wealthy
Love is only for those that can afford it
Love is only for the beautiful and the wealthy
Not me, not me
