01. Half the Time

Wouldn‛t it be nice
If there were more hours in a day
There‛d be more time to look good
And lots more time to stay

If you had the time, half the time
If you had the time, half the time
How would you spend it,
If you didn‛t have to lend it?

You may have had hours
You‛ve spent waiting to leave
Consuming those minutes
Was frustration indeed

If you had that time, all that time
If you had that time, go that time
It was a bore when you got there
You had to hurry just to leave

Watching this long race
Is the sport for me
& watching you keep pace
Is exciting to see

If you lend the time, half the time
& you spend the time, half the time
I‛m not sure who‛s winning
Or if you just try to place

You hurry to get there
Then you hurry to leave
Who did you meet there?
Or did you have time to see

You may have had hours
You spend waiting to leave
Consuming those minutes
But it‛s frustration indeed

If you had that time, all that time
If you had that time, go that time
It was a bore when you got there
You had to hurry just to leave

Wouldn‛t it be nice
If there were more hours in a day
There‛d be more time to look good
And lots more time to stay

If you had the time, half the time
If you had the time, half the time
How would you spend it,
if you didn‛t have to lend it?

You hurry to get there
Then you hurry to leave
Who did you meet there?
Or did you have time to see


02. Old Man

The desert sun shone down upon him
He went to find the Old Man
Too see if he could learn the secret of magic
The Indian held in his hand

Old Man won't you teach me your magic
I'd like to see the world the same way as you.

Has anyone seen the one that I search for?
I know he comes here once in a while
Someone must know where I could find him
But they just shook their heads and smiled.

Old Man won't you teach me your magic
I'd like to see the world the same way as you.

Then someone tappped him on the shoulder
And said I think you're looking for me
Now that I'm here your search is over
I will reveal your reason to be.

Teach me to see instead of just looking
Show me how I can stop the world
I want to become a man of knowledge
Unlock the door that keeps me away.

Old Man won't you teach me your magic
I'd like to see the world the same way as you.


03. Hangman

Listening to the sound of wood being set into place
Rhythm suggesting someone's in a hurry
Soon those footsteps will be coming here to rescue me
All this time in thoughts it's twice they're killing me

Hangman, please no pain, be quick
I don't wish to feel what the dream tonight told me

They said there was a fight
I don't recall my even being there
I had too much to drink, they say I brought a gun with me and I used it there

Hangman, please no pain, be quick
I don't wish to feel what the dream tonight told me

Lead me down that path, now I see the silhouette that waits for me
Black cloaks starting to part, do you my name, can you feel for me

Hangman, please no pain, be quick
I don't wish to feel what the dream tonight told me


06. Don't Bother

Each day I find it a little bit harder
To get up out of bed
I can‛t seem to start to my head
What was I to do? I can‛t remember
Did I talk to you?
Have you forgotten too?

Things keep piling up they don‛t get better
Looks like I am stuck again; bad weather

Life for me can be a great big bother
Does it feel like that to you?
What are we to do?
Each day‛s events, one after another
I always get there late
What a sorry state

Things keep piling up they don‛t get better
Looks like I am stuck again; bad weather


08. Don't Step Out of Line

We are the pawns
And our moves are controlled by somebody else
Each in his time
Is removed without care and placed on the shelf
We can‛t hope to survive
We‛ve not the power to alter the course
Each of us in our lives
Must attend to release our ties to the source

Don‛t step out of line

How can we win?
Can we risk making moves that end in surprise?
Surely our strength
Is not really seen as much in their eyes
There‛s safety in numbers we‛re told
But we need the help of someone inside
Someone who knows place and time
Someone who‛s not afraid to decide

Don‛t step out of line

We just can‛t take anymore
We‛ve been fooling ourselves for too long
It‛s time for a change
Time to put our plans in flight
And take what is rightfully ours
Tonight we strike!

Now that we‛re in
Things will be different, there‛ll be quite a change
It‛s taken so long
Now that we run things, it all feels so strange
We‛ll look after our own
We‛ll clothe and feed them, control their design
Things will run smoothly, we‛re sure
So long as the new ones don‛t step out of line

Don‛t step out of line
