Track Name: Hail
Please don’t follow me
Provide some space and I will Hail, Hail oh tonight
I’ve heard of stubborn pride
and we’ll lose all tonight if we Hail,
If only for tonight
And we’ll prove

Please don’t follow me
Provide some space and I will Hail, Hail oh tonight
I’ve heard of stubborn pride
and we’ll lose all tonight if we Hail,
If only for tonight
And we’ll prove

I heard a voice alright
It killed my dreams and made me pale, pale oh tonight
I hope this moment passes, let the music fill our glasses
we’ll play on
If only for tonight
And we’ll prove

Let it be, show me your love’s dynamic
Push back me, Come on reduce the damage
Let it be, show me your love’s dynamic
Push back me and we’ll push on, on, on and on

Please don’t follow me
Please don’t follow me
And I’ll hail oh oh
Track Name: He Said
I wanna have the strength
To say exactly how I feel, if we all had faith
To display my beliefs
And then just make 'em real, with a little faith

Oh oh man, Amen
Oh oh man, Amen

I wanna hold your thoughts
Do exactly like I was taught, and for goodness sake
Why don’t you just change
Your mind, your mood, your attitude, with a little faith

He Said, You can live if build a life
He said, Ill bring you the ocean if you’ll swim tonight
He said, You gotta love if you wanna life
So turn like my world, find your god and enlighten

If you push your theory to me
Or destroy a life entirely, for the love of faith
Then I’ll walk away from you
And from my thoughts I’ll banish you, coz you showed no faith

Oh oh man, Amen
Oh oh man, Amen
Turn the scripture around
Turn the scripture around
Turn the scripture around
Track Name: Conscript me
Conscript Me
I’ll plant no trees

You keep my life in your pocket
Plug me into war like a socket
I’m drawn in a lottery ticket
Then i'm taking cover in thicket

I’ll keep the wolves from your door
I hear their howling though I don’t know what for

Conscript me
I’ll plant no trees
Conscript me
I’m owned by thee

I’m bow legged and I’m already armed
Say goodbye to the life on the farm
Your regime I have to be a part of
So take heart, take heart.

I’ll keep the wolves from your door
I hear their howling but I don’t know what for
And I’ll jump right in with both of my feet
Coz I love my mum and there’s no anger in me

I don’t believe
You can make me
But yeah you’ll try
Yeah you’ll try
Maybe well die together
I didn’t think so
I didn’t think so
You just made me go

Conscript me
I’ll plant no trees
Conscript me
I’m owned by thee
Track Name: Turned my Life Around
We are the jokers we live in the clouds
Aah, our hearts so loud
We are the people who live in the sea
Aah, we’re one two three

You, turned my life around
You, turned my life around
You, constantly astound
You, turned my life around

If there is something that I should need
Aah, anything sweet
If there is colour then it won’t bleed
Aah, if you stand by me

You, turned my life around
You, turned my life around
You, constantly astound
You, turned my life around

You, lit the fire deep within me, yeah
You, lit a fire in my heart
You, help me burn down the cities
You, it was you from the start
Track Name: Normal Life
Help, Please now help me find
A solution, a solution now
Oh would you be so kind
If you’d help
To treat my body’s aches
Coz I need to know the answers for
The life I wanna make

And I feel ya, and I feel ya
And I feel ya, I can’t heal ya

I just know now, I just wanna grow old
Living a normal life
Stuck in Neutral, Baby we’re growing old
Living a normal life

Help, I’m embarrassed just to ask
And I’m not a hypochondriac
though I’m losing all my mass
Won’t you hold, A place within the team
As I’m tired, oh I’m tired lord
I only sleep in my daydreams

And I feel ya, and I feel ya
And I feel ya, I Can’t heal ya

I just know now I just wanna grow old
Living a normal life
Stuck in Neutral, baby we’re growing old
We’re living a normal life

Hold the reigns, with a steady balanced frame
I was wilted, so tilted, jilted I was lame
But if you come to me, then maybe we can be
Living a normal life

Woo Ooh Ooh
Woo Ooh Ooh
I just know now I just wanna grow old
Living a normal life
Stuck in Neutral, Baby we’re growing old
Living a normal life
X2
Woo Ooh Ooh
