Track Name: Say I
Say I

I’m so tired of the war
What they wanna hurt us for?
I know it’s kill or be killed
Just the thought makes my blood chill

Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I

I can’t take it any more
All the crying can’t ignore
Someone make it stop right now
Wish I could but I don’t know how

Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I

The idea of peace is tearing you apart
It’s confusing your ragged heart
You’ve lived too long on the edge
Take a step back from the ledge
Take a step back from the ledge

Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I

There is plenty room for all
It’s time to knock down those walls
Say that you can live by my side
Now’s the time for truth not lies

Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more people die
Say I, Say I, Say I, Say I
Don’t wanna see no more orphans cry
Say I

Track Name: This Song
This Song

This song, this song, this song

I was born in pain
I was clothed in shame
I have lost my name
I have walked through flames
And washed away the stains
So nothing remains

I’m just a shadow that no-one sees
A grain of sand, a leaf on the breeze
All I ever did was wrong
Everyone I ever loved is gone
All I got left is this song

I was born and died
I was bound and tied
I have sold my eyes
I have lost all pride
And now I look on high
To the bird that flies

I was broke like a ship on the rocks
A condemned man, with the cell door locked
All I ever did was wrong
Everyone I ever loved is gone
All I got left is this song

And here I stand alone
Without a friend or home
Poor and naked to the bone
With my pockets full of stones
But my heart beats strong
For the time it won’t be long

As it is hope that just calls me on
No matter what, it’s what keeps me strong
All I ever did was wrong
Everyone I ever loved is gone
All I got left is this song

Is this song
All I got left is this song
All I got left is this song
All I got left is this song
This song
This Song
This song
This song
This song
This song
This song

Track Name: On Charles De Gaulle Street
On Charles De Gaulle Street

The heat it burns my face
But I can’t turn away
I was born in this place
And here I’m gonna stay

Won’t be sad
Won’t be blue
Can’t be as bad as you think

One of these days
The thirst will go
And they’ll be plenty to drink

Lorraine don’t you fret no more
Soon they’ll be no more heat
The rains will soon start to pour
As we shelter on Charles De Gaulle Street

The light it feels so strong
So I must close my eyes
The day it seems so long
It’s hard to work out why

I can’t eat
But I don’t care
Coz I’m still alive

But what I know
If I don’t drink
Then I will not survive

Lorraine don’t you fret no more
Soon they’ll be no more heat
The rains will soon start to pour
As we shelter on Charles De Gaulle Street

On Charles De Gaulle Street
On Charles De Gaulle Street
On Charles De Gaulle Street

Cross by the River Seine
Stands so straight and true
We all pray for the rain
That will make everything new

Don’t lose heart
‘Cause you know soon the birds will fly
Just hold your faith and look on up
There’s a rainbow in the sky

Lorraine don’t you fret no more
Soon they’ll be no more heat
The rains will soon start to pour
As we shelter on Charles De Gaulle Street

Charles De Gaulle Street
Charles De Gaulle Street
Charles De Gaulle Street
Charles De Gaulle Street
Charles De Gaulle Street

Track Name: Night Worker
Night Worker

It’s been a long night baby
And the stars are fading away
It’s been a long night baby
And I’m gonna sleep right through the day
Wake me when the moon appears
And the sun is hanging low
Wake me when the moon appears
And I’ll know it’s time to go

I’m a night worker baby
I do it for pay
I’m a night worker baby
I don’t care what anyone may say

I’m good at what I do
I know you know it’s true
Before it all gets spent
I got to pay the rent
That’s why I do what I do
I know you know it’s true
That’s why I do what I do
I know you know it’s true

I’m a night worker baby
I do it for pay
I’m a night worker baby
I don’t care what anyone may say

It’s been a long night baby
And the stars are fading away
It’s been a long night baby
And I’m gonna sleep right through the day
Wake me when the moon appears
And the sun is hanging low
Wake me when the moon appears
And I’ll know it’s time to go

I’m a night worker baby
I’m a night worker baby
I don’t care what anyone may say
I’m a night worker baby
I do it for pay
I’m a night worker baby
I don’t care what anyone may say
I’m a night worker baby
I do it for pay
Night worker, night worker

Track Name: There's Stormy Weather
There’s Stormy Weather

Red fields of Poppy’s
Blowing in the wind
Haunted whispers and violins
Float down from the mountain

Olive trees shake in the breeze
Doves are being shot
We’re in a deep deep freeze
Though they tell us that we’re not
Though they tell us that we’re not

There’s a shadow in the house
Yellow men on the moon
Hurricane’s way down south
In the month of June

Stormy weather, stormy weather, stormy weather

Just a lone voice in the wilderness
A tear drop in the rain
Can you feel the hopelessness
And the pain?

Hear thunder on the mountains
Smoke rising in the air
People screaming and shouting
Everywhere

There’s stormy weather
Blowing in from the east
Hell bent for leather
Waiting for the feast

Best say goodbye
To your next of kin
Our souls will fly on high
Right next to our king

Red fields of Poppy’s
Blowing in the wind
Haunted whispers and violins
Float down from the mountain

Olive trees shake in the breeze
Doves are being shot
We’re in a deep deep freeze
Though they tell us that we’re not

There’s a shadow in the house
Yellow men on the moon
Hurricane’s way down south
In the month of June

Just a lone voice in the wilderness
A tear drop in the rain

Stormy weather, stormy weather

Just a lone voice in the wilderness
A tear drop in the rain
Can you feel the hopelessness
And the pain?

Hear thunder on the mountains
Smoke rising in the air
People screaming and shouting
Everywhere

Lord, there’s stormy weather
Blowing in from the east
Hell bent for leather
Waiting for the feast

Best say goodbye
To your next of kin
Our souls will fly on high
Right next to our king, Lord

Track Name: Peat Bog Soldiers
Peat Bog Soldiers

Walking through the fields
Walking through the fields of bones
Bleached white
Like the burning stones
There’s not a bird
There’s not a bird to sing his song
No-one to stand up to scream
What they’re doing to us is wrong

We’re peat bog soldiers
Fighting to stay as one
This mud’s our battlefield
Our soul’s our only gun
We’re peat bog soldiers
We’re peat bog soldiers
We’re peat bog soldiers

We fight the greatest battle
The score is never settled
Though cunning and full of deceit
The enemy can be beat

We’re peat bog soldiers
Fighting to stay as one
This mud’s our battlefield
Our soul’s our only gun

Storm clouds all around my head
As I lie on my wooden bed
I have no tears left to cry
I’ve seen far too many die

We’re peat bog soldiers
Fighting to stay as one
This mud’s our battlefield
Our soul’s our only gun

There are children over there
I see them through the barbed wire
In the distance they look back
From the future they look back

Children, children come to here
Don’t close your eyes or your ears
Learn from what you hear and see
Through you our memory is guaranteed

We’re peat bog soldiers
Fighting to stay as one
This mud’s our battlefield
Our soul’s our only gun
We’re peat bog soldiers

We’re peat bog soldiers
Fighting to stay as one
This mud’s our battlefield
Our soul’s our only gun
Peat bog soldiers
Peat bog soldiers
Peat bog soldiers

Track Name: Six Feet Under
Six Feet Under

Blamed for a crime that wasn’t done
Shunned like a prisoner on the run
Living in fear of that knock on the door
Wondering what I was brought to this world for?

Feel like a leper in the crowd
Feel my heart pounding so loud
Wishing someone would hear my point of view
Something that most people don’t want to do

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows
Take me away in an old wheel barrow
Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow
To dig my grave so shallow

Don’t make it deep
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under

Judge said ‘It’s done, I have to pay’
Screamed through his wig ‘Take him away
Nothing’s fair and you know it’s true
No-one wants to think any more ’bout you’

Felt they had taken all my hope
Felt my neck tightening from the rope
Never thought the end would happen like this
Wasn’t here long enough for to be missed

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows
Take me away in an old wheel barrow
Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow
To dig my grave so shallow

Don’t you write my name
Just mark the spot with a number
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under

As I look down at the trap door
They made a mistake that’s for sure
Waiting for the news to come down the line
Waiting to be saved in the nick of time

Who should be pardoned them or me?
None so blind as those who won’t see
Forgive them for they know not what they do
Forgive them for they know not what they do

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows
Take me away in an old wheel barrow
Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow
To dig my grave so shallow

Don’t write no words
When I’m six feet under
Don’t write no words
When I’m six feet under
Don’t write no words
When I’m six feet under
Let them ask and wonder
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under

Blamed for a crime that wasn’t done
Shunned like a prisoner on the run
Living in fear of that knock on the door
Wondering what I was brought to this world for?

Feel like a leper in the crowd
Feel my heart pounding so loud
Wishing someone would hear my point of view
Something that most people don’t want to do

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows
Take me away in an old wheel barrow
Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow
To dig my grave so shallow

Don’t make it deep
So I can hear the roar of the thunder
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under
When I’m six feet under

Track Name: Till My Day is Done
Till My Day Is Done

I came from the tribe of twelve great men
My roots they stretch to way back when
For in the day follow the sun
But I can’t rest till my day is done

I want peace that’s for sure
No I don’t close the door
Come on in take a seat
Fore you do wipe your feet

In David’s House the line is clear
The man will come from there to here
It’s hard to wait I hope I’ll see
From Bethlehem up to Galilee
Yo, Yo, from Bethlehem to Galilee

Till my day is done
Till my day is done

So much hurt so much pain
From the sky falls hard rain
Peace will come to this world
Joy to all boys and girls

The wall so high the fence so long
To keep you out is that so wrong
You want my land you want my home
But all my life I been forced to roam
No, no, without a home been forced to roam

Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done

Life is sad life is short
War takes lives if they’re fought
Take my hand come with me
Sit below the olive tree

I say to you please hear my plea
I won’t hurt you so don’t hurt me
No one knows when that day will come
Much brighter than the rising sun
Yo, yo, day brighter than the rising sun
Till my day is done
Till my day is done

I say to you please hear my plea
I won’t hurt you so don’t hurt me
No one knows when that day will come
Much brighter than the rising sun
Yo, yo, day brighter than the rising sun

Life is sad life is short
War takes lives if they’re fought
Take my hand come with me
Sit below the olive tree

I say to you please hear my plea
I won’t hurt you so don’t hurt me
No one knows when that day will come
Much brighter than the rising sun
Yo, yo, day brighter than the rising sun

Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done
Till my day is done

Track Name: Those Schizophrenic Blues
Those Schizophrenic Blues

From early in the morning
To late at night
From when the day’s a-dawning
To the last of the light

I’m fighting to stay as one
And not be split in two
Trying to walk in the sun
But I was born to lose

I really don’t wanna tell you
But I know it’s true
I got those Schizophrenic Blues

I got those Blues from the morning
Got those Blues to night
Oh mama tell me what to do
Coz nothing feels right
And there’s nothing I can do
To stop those Schizophrenic Blues

There’s a side to me that you don’t know
And it’s tearing me apart
And it’s breaking so
My ragged aching heart

You think I should be in a madhouse
In a circus or a zoo?
You wouldn’t think so
If it happened to you

There’s two sides to me
Like day and night
When night time falls
I can feel it’s not right

I really don’t wanna tell you
But you’ll find it’s true
I got those Schizophrenic Blues

I got those Blues from the morning
Got those Blues to night
Oh mama tell me what to do
Coz nothing feels right
And there’s nothing I can do
To stop those Schizophrenic Blues

Paul Robert Thomas
Track Name: Down, Down, Down
Down, Down, Down

When you’re weighed down by all your troubles and woes
Like you got concrete blocks tied to your feet
Your body’s cracking from your head to your toes
Like an ice statue melting in the heat

And you’re gasping for air as the sharks close in
You take one last breath as your ship goes down
You ask God to forgive you for all your sins
As a smile quickly replaces your frown

You’re starting to go down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down,
And there’s no way back up

And your crew has left you to struggle alone
You’re up to your neck in over your head
You thought you could handle it all on your own
But you can raise the ship but not the dead

And the pressure gets you as you start to break
The laws of gravity pulling you down
For you’re not sure if you’re asleep or awake
As you give up all hope and start to drown

You’re starting to go down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down, down
And there’s no way back up

So if you can’t swim
Don’t dive too deep
If you’re scared of heights
Don’t climb too high
A tight rope walker
Has a safety net
A five star captain
Some safety boats
Know your bounds
And keep your feet on the ground
Keep your feet on the ground

Or you’ll be going
Down, down, down
Or you’ll be going
Down, down, down
You’ll be going down, down, down, down, down, down, down
And there’s no way back up
And there’s no way back up
And there’s no way back up

Paul Robert Thomas
