How about we go and stick your head on a spike And stick it in a bear den where they get to invite All their friends around and then they're gonna sit and they'll gloat 'Bout hoe they hunted you for days and then mowed you down How about we peel your skin and stretch it all out Stick it out in scrublands where there's tigers about They'll chill out in the sun and they'll lie down on your ahhhhhh Feel the extra warmth it brings at night in the grass The right to life isn't just ours to own The king of the jungle reduced to handbags and coats We sacrifice everything that we know In the blink of an eye we're destroying our home Now what if we were all locked up in some little cage Made to eat, sleep and ruck under the animals gaze Reduced our concrete habitat by 80% And for entertainment we'd be made to fight to the death What if we were chained and trained to dance in the streets Had spears shot in our backs and made to run while we're weak And if our teeth were thought to be some miracle cure How long would we allow our numbers to be picked off The right to life isn't just ours to own The king of the jungle reduced to handbags and coats We sacrifice everything that we know In the blink of an eye we're destroying our home The right to life isn't just ours to own The king of the jungle reduced to handbags and coats We sacrifice everything that we know In the blink of an eye we're destroying our home Right To Life Right To Life Right To Life Right To Life The right to life isn't just ours to own The king of the jungle reduced to handbags and coats We sacrifice everything that we know In the blink of an eye we're destroying our home The right to life isn't just ours to own The king of the jungle reduced to handbags and coats We sacrifice everything that we know In the blink of an eye we're destroying our home

Brave 03:51
Clock above my head tick tick tick tick tick Scrabble for a break tick tick tick tick tick Mind has run away tick tick tick tick And I'm struggling for breath tick tick tick tick The rules that pin me down break break break break break Boundaries all around break break break break break Societal compounds break break break break Is the norm by which I'm bound break break break break Brave! We step away From the frames that hold us back from our escape We can change our prescribed fate Break the walls, burn down the doors and recreate Our World again Sat behind a desk tick tick tick tick Cos you have to pay your rent tick tick tick tick tick Wish your life away tick tick tick tick Only live for the weekend tick tick tick tick The strings that tie you down break break break break break Feeling like you'll drown break break break break Break The jobs you're taught are sound break break break break The life you want on which they frown break break break break Brave! We step away From the frames that hold us back from our escape We can change our prescribed fate Break the walls, burn down the doors and recreate Our World again They're gonna plug you in and then they'll bleed you dry You won't feel a thing while they control your life They're gonna plug you in a slave until you die The system feeds your dreams but you're the sacrifice They're gonna plug you in and then they'll bleed you dry You won't feel a thing while they control your life They're gonna plug you in a slave until you die The system feeds your dreams but you're the sacrifice They're gonna plug you in and then they'll bleed you dry You won't feel a thing while they control your life They're gonna plug you in a slave until you die The system feeds your dreams but you're the sacrifice Brave! We step away From the frames that hold us back from our escape We can change our prescribed fate Break the walls, burn down the doors and recreate Our World again

Lollipops 03:33
Tumble down houses Dust blown through the streets People are weeping Clutching their things Sirens are sounding Out through the town They hear it as death knolls They all hunker down Exhausted and beaten, removed from their homes Travelling seas and countries unknown Landing on our shores with unthinkable loss Face persecution from those that drop bombs The children are drowning They're starving, they're cold And still we refuse them The rights that they're owed We've lost our compassion Numb to the sight A tactic they've fostered By media might Exhausted and beaten, removed from their homes Travelling seas and countries unknown Landing on our shores with unthinkable loss Face persecution from those that drop bombs Exhausted and beaten, removed from their homes Travelling seas and countries unknown Landing on our shores with unthinkable loss Face persecution from those that drop bombs Exhausted and beaten, removed from their homes Travelling seas and countries unknown Landing on our shores with unthinkable loss Face persecution from those that drop bombs

Was there magic in that kiss When you both first touched lips And did she make you smile inside The kind that rises to your eyes Do you remember how it felt When we were lying on that couch The world was lying at our feet Our hearts connected with every beat But now you're gone And you're painting a new song I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away All the promises you made And all the fantasies we chased Like stories thought up by a child We believed in every line It all got to serious The lines got blurred and disfigured I tried to hold on to the edge And I'm still falling to my death Cos now you're gone And you're painting a new song I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away But you're the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away But you're the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away I'll be the one that got away But you're the one that got away
