As they learn from the past they take turns on the path floating away with their words as a raft hoping today is the first and the last chance lost now you find them surfing the stars chasing the sun, running with the wind with space they're at one, summoned from within facing your guns, from your power unhinged free from the shackles that your people are in at once strengthening the heart and weakening the knees as I mentioned from the start they are reaching for their freedom connected through the earth with perspective on the legions mirroring its worth and the cycle of the seasons emerge from the winter spring into life shoots of new growth summer bringing the light and when autumn comes they let go of old talents heads high into the winter you can bet they know balance Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Shiva wants Hound at the door shadow on the hill moving fast but holding still being chaste is overrated everyone thirsts only some are sated Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Shiva wants Hound at the door shadow on the hill moving fast but holding still being chaste is overrated everyone thirsts only some are sated Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Every four leaf clover I find Shiva wants Shiva wants as they walk in the sky it's plain to see the weightless scribes are changing me patient eyes turn chains to seams and gave us a glimpse of what we came to be

Warrior 03:45
He's a right on soldier gentle warrior He's a right on soldier gentle warrior He's a right on soldier gentle warrior He's a right on soldier gentle warrior he chooses peace he has the power but he chooses peace he chooses peace he has the power but he chooses peace he chooses peace he has the power but he chooses peace he chooses peace he has the power but he chooses peace she naturally mediates and never takes the easy way with a passion to relieve the hate she never needs to leave a name from your anger she would lead the way and fallacies that schemers say from affection you would deviate but now she helps you see again words minimal, mental action to the max the one to get the two alpha males to relax the one to offer nuts to the man with a monkey on his back the one with the love and direction the role of a junkie with a map she's a right on soldier gentle warrior i'm a right old sulker mental worrier

Do Your Bit 04:46
from your war i'll be plucked from obscurity the love can't stop luring me touched by its purity from a brain that's disorderly the changes are calling me a name that's now all to me, explain it accordingly to the old sayings like 'the Oak before Ash' and the economic juggernauts I hope they all crash but we already know they will because this system has a catch infinite growth is a fallacy that gives no room for the world to relax no resistance on tap check the distance on your map from the A to the B, it's the journey not the destination you say to me life will leave you behind if you wait and see if you're waiting for your heaven then awaken from your sleep heart racing with the beat feeling nothing for the kings but the plucking of the strings has the power to liven the soul like nothing that money can bring the mechanics of diet retold when you chuck in a bucket of wings but it's harder to try and be bold when the pressures of need collapse and emerge inside from the cold when the snow has covered the latch and find purpose divert from the apathy lets have a fight that's evenly matched it's a tricky business indeed as I keep it under my cap do your bit for this do your bit for that caught up in riff raff tit for tat and scheming on a quarter do you miss sitting back silly chat sure enough spliffs were packed blissful tracks were flowing like water If the good life tastes better with your head in the sand and you know about the curse that is embedded in Man and the top­down destruction that envelops our plans where need and wisdom meet is where I guess that we can wield a power that is real no more stay on the fence begin to voice ideas that we'd been craving to mention in 10 Downing Street was the main intervention sparking the fires of the working class tension. stand with you and me and breathe in the ambiguity and the demons that can try and ruin me, dreaming in capital lunacy although we are captive we're soon to be free the movement is massive assuming a speed on cats that attack when caught with the cream having a chat and a port with the Queen serving up raps with a portion of spleen only the blind saw what I mean swimming in eye­watery seas whilst the lie­lottery leaves us to seek a lobotomy­Jesus a god transplant, last dance, got the t­shirt

Knightly 04:33
the day was bold you see my heart rode on with me the sky was clear as can be for only you and me Seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly the look of crimson gold such kindness can’t be told so blithe and bold to water cold Seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly overhead the owl takes to his bed the sky turns crimson red the night has fled Seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly seeing you knightly

Crazy Lady 03:37
who's that crazy lady coming rattling at my door? wild eyes sly advice, nose for intrigue I know this crazy lady I've encountered her before shaking up my house, corner stones were flimsy open her front door to cats and candles she's hoping you'll want more absent rambles as we spoke on her front porch she played The Bangles she's approaching for one more name to tangle who's that black rat fucking stinks of cider getting you pissed you want to get inside her this lady's fucking crazy watch her drink 10 cans with a woolly jumper on and a midday tan open her front door to cats and candles she's hoping you'll want more absent rambles as we spoke on her front porch she played The Bangles she's approaching for one more name to tangle For the crazy lady For the crazy lady For the crazy lady who comes knocking upon my door feeling love for the crazy lady For the crazy lady For the crazy lady who comes knocking upon my door With a laugh like witchcraft, she don't take her pints halved With a laugh like witchcraft, she don't take her pints halved With a laugh like witchcraft, she don't take her pints halved With a laugh like witchcraft, she don't take her pints halved whoop whoop the beat come around, you know you're the talk of the town whoop whoop the beat come around, you know you're the talk of the town whoop whoop the beat come around, you know you're the talk of the town whoop whoop the beat come around, you know you're the talk of the town I will never rap alone when I've got a saxophone and beatbox and bass as my musical chaperones using the grammar so it spins like diablos used in a manner that begins with a hammer­blow nail on the head, splitting your timber melodies are meds and the spitting gets limber tie yourself down? fuck the mortgage buy us all a round yeah it sucks to horde it chumps on the news a few fools with rules chumps making Hip Hop too cool for school I've heard it all before why spew your spool go and high dive into a paddling pool so we tap into an energy smashing on your haemorrhage and apathetic enemies with fashion as their heritage lacerate the penalty, laminate the heretics cos' music taught us more than church or high school ever did

Golden Egg 03:58
and the young guns think that when life gets older your devil and your angel's still right on your shoulders a hard day's graft and a night on the sofa driving your brain is the television chauffeur when's my inspiration coming? I'd better check my smartphone measure worth through the likes i'm just another asshole on anti­social networks feeling better from you art­clones connected to my neighbourhood, chuckle when I pass home when you're growing up they say life is what you make it then why do most of us think it's nicer when you take it? the cost of lost religion is that buying shit is sacred living in this culture a cycle difficult to break, it's like eating Haribo when it's spinach that your body needs or choosing a leader when the criminals are nominees on my knees foraging subliminal monopolies the cynic inside of me a tragedy that's also comedy to reflect pomposity do you take the moral high ground? mountains of ethics can't hide the sorrow felt in my sound swallowing the wine now, indifferent to time now inefficient with my fishing a trawling net until I sign out is it being self­sufficient, disconnected or just offline? so wrapped up in myself it's never stealth when I drop rhymes showing me your choccy bics when you know I've gone and scoffed mine socialist apocalypse, want biscuits of the posh kind the pile at the bottom want a life unattainable bottom dwellers choke pay the price unsustainable patterns of consumption are twice as unnameable when the wild lifestyles they are marketed as tameable Doughnut­Dons, Sugar­Sirs are often the pimple­kings I'm spring cleaning your mind and i'm bossing the simple things the 'fat of the land' and the notion of 'sink or swim' as ignorance is bliss blow a kiss to the think, and grin running for a golden egg the ending of a rainbow I insisted on a sequel but the ending was the same though with remote control force we're exploding your channel the TV seems sweet but it erodes your enamel

Moonbeat 04:32
Oh Lord won’t you lay me down, oh Lord Oh Lord won’t you lay me down, so low Oh lord but my heart it sounds so Oh lord but my heart it sounds so sure Slow Slow Sweet as the moon it sounds Sweet as the moon it sounds Sweet as the moon it sounds Oh lord won’t you lay me down Oh Lord won't you lay me down I'm found to be cagey in towns where your bouncers have rabies Astounded and shady you're a clown and a baby Serving up your sermon I've been grounded for days Build me up at your discretion, a purveyor of your lessons Standing stained from your aggression and your testament compression Build me up Lord with mountainous uproar My words now carrying the weight, evolved to profound from the stuck jaw In my church my heart is sound where my feelings are passed around Gaining strength to see Him smile and life's meaning from His frown Standing at your altar where convictions never falter Where your diction laps against my shores, an idealist the sculptor Of your personality, imperfect analogies From your name you channel me to dissect anatomies Now deciphered I'm emerging your disciple as a surgeon Dissect a religious index and your texts are feeling turgid Oh lord won’t you lay me down, Oh lord Oh lord won’t you lay me down, So low Oh lord but my heart it sounds so Oh lord but my heart it sounds so sure So sweet as the sun it drowns so slow So sweet as the moon it sounds, and sails to the fore Slow Slow Sweet as the moon it sounds Sweet as the moon it sounds Sweet as the moon it sounds Oh lord won’t you lay me down
