Track Name: Manmade
A million years of energy supply
Ends up in the choking blood-red sky
While the wind and rain blow down the drain
And the sun just sets the time

Another broadcast on the human race
As the planet comes back for another day
Of drilling for pollution
Leaking radiation into the ocean

What a way to go

Humanity's vanity- we own the planet, we'll
Use up all the energy and worry about it later
Dig it up blow it up poison it and wonder
Why there's so much hunger misery and cancer
Cover up the guilt with deniability
Arguing the toss and heading for extinction
Need some more resources better go to war its
Killing for the greed of civilisation

Will we realise when the food we grow
And the dark brown air and the H2O
Start fusing our DNA
There ain't nowhere else to go in outer space

And the world lies bleeding

What a way to go it's the end of the race
On top of the world and covered ion waste
Finally done it, what have we won? It's
Premature oblivion- manmade
Track Name: Face To Face
Here's to the people whose love for the world
Is twisted by men with machines
Caring and sharing the little we have
Is not what we see on the screens
For each hungry hand there's a fistful of cash
Spent on the weapons of war
So here's to the people who stand up and say-
No more!

They'll patronise the workers and demonise the poor
And say they need to know our names
It's the enemy without any clue what we're about
That try to make us all the same
Well I'm a piece of data and you're in a computer
I never thought of it that way
Cos the people that we meet are really so much more complete
Than all the info stored away

[chorus]
Face to face -in three dimensions
Face to face- good to see you looking human

Some talk about inclusion as they're locking all the doors
And getting driven round in cars
Advertising power tradition
Secrecy and class
Well it's our choice to lead or be together or be led
If we don't choose what we're told to
Better ideas spread

[ch]

Here's to the people whose names we forget
Or just never met, whose ideas we get
Here's to the hearing the silence of fearing
Turn to the cheering of recognition

[ch]
Track Name: World's Gone Mad
Floods of facts that interact
And contradict each other
Truth is never more intact than when it's undiscovered
Blinkers on the world is led by idiots in suits
Who don't believe in global warming
Human rights or evolution

World's gone mad
- disinformation
- and its contagion
- assimilation
What was normal yesterday
Just blew up in my face again

Chemicals in food and air
And water and in pills
Permanently dizzy
We addict ourselves to thrills
Coming down the long way round
The bus came off the tracks
The driver''s sat there blinking
Thinking - I never saw that coming

World's gone mad
-such fascination
- with regulation
- here's more distraction
Keep up with the never-ending
Ways to waste the time you're spending

Well it's nice to think of losing it
As comical and free- it fits
The cosy and the rosy view of
L U N A C
Y you wouldn't want to go there
But take a look outside
There's chaos and confusion
And they're wearing suits and ties

World's gone mad
- civilisation
- disintegration
- alienation
No time left to hesitate
And watch it all accelerate

World's gone mad
Track Name: Paralysed
Hot off the press
Another tale of excess
We measure awareness
By our levels of stress
Is ignorance bliss? Well
It seems you're convinced, tell me
How d'you sleep at night not dreaming
Of a better place to be waking up to?

What would it take to make you care?
What would it take to make you feel?
What would it take to make you
Wide awake to your involvement?

It's all in the figures
They're emotional triggers
They make us feel smaller
As the problem gets bigger
To not think about it
Is the easy way round it
To the people who supply the lies
And those whose minds are paralysed

[chorus]

It doesn't bother me the bigger the lie....
it doesn't bother me
it doesn't bother me the more it's believed
WELL MAYBE
[chorus]
