Track Name: New War
There's a new war coming and you're running out of time,
They came for your freedom and now they want your mind,
And just like Alice tumbling down that rabbit hole,
You're a slave to the system and you're under their control.

Wise man once said that the truth will set you free,
Well he sold you your shackles and he called it liberty,
And they won't stop at anything to satisfy that fix,
Whilst you're distracted by their cartoon politics.

Well you can stand there just like you did before, but you have a choice.

Open your eyes, you've gotta see through their lies,
Don't let them push you around,
Let's not pretend that we know how it will end,
You've gotta fight to survive,
'Cause it's a new war.

There's a new war coming and there's no place left to hide,
'Cause people are waking at the turning of the tide,
The powers that were, they almost had it all,
But they hijacked the future and they climbed too high to fall.

Well you can stand there just like you did before, but you have a choice.

Open your eyes, you've gotta see through their lies,
Don't let them push you around,
Let's not pretend that we know how it will end,
You've gotta fight to survive,
'Cause it's a new war.
Track Name: Searching
I'm walking through the rain,
And I don't know where I'm going,
I'm searching high and low,
For a place that I can call home.

But I need to get away from here,
On the open road,
So If you find a better place,
Won't you let me know?

I'm searching for the answer,
I'm searching for the answer.

Businessmen may rule the world,
But that's not my business,
And thieves, they may steal my things,
But I'm not sure I'll need them.

But I need to get away from here,
On the open road,
So If you find a better place,
Won't you let me know?

I'm searching for the answer,
I'm searching for the answer.
Track Name: Blind Man
Blind man walks with his hands on his feet,
Gets strange looks from the folk in the street,
He's begging for change, but nobody cares.

A pregnant teenage mother of three,
She's on her iPhone while her kids shout and scream,
And caught in the smoke of an e-cigarette.

A girl from the office, she's out on the town,
Dressed in her best, painted up like a clown,
Maybe she'll meet her husband this year?

And a drunken reveller is knocked to the floor,
Covered in blood, but he'll come back for more,
The bouncer's request was perfectly clear.

The world carries on whether you like it or not,
There's no use trying to change what cannot be changed,
In time you will find that we're all just as blind,
In truth, all the same, we're one and the same,
One and the same.

A sharply dressed man rushes past at the station,
By the look on his face, clearly needs a vacation,
He knows time is money, but he's already late.

In the old market square stands a proud honoured veteran,
He fought for his country, but received no attention,
For the country he loved has now al but changed.

The world carries on whether you like it or not,
There's no use trying to change what cannot be changed,
In time you will find that we're all just as blind,
In truth, all the same, we're one and the same,
One and the same.

Blind man walks with his hands on his feet,
Gets strange looks from the folk in the street,
He's begging for change, but nobody cares.
