The real messiah was here didn't bleed when crucified The real messiah was here didn't preach, just testified! the real messiah was here but then she never really died The real messiah's waiting inside what you gonna do about it? what you gonna do about it? what you gonna do? Ride through the fields and ride through the bones As she tried to reveal what you'd like to have known you might have to steal back your rightful home The Shepherd’s Cave The real messiah was here she was listening for your song the real messiah is waiting here she wants to sing along The real messiah was here because the words won’t be forgotten the real messiah was here all along what you gonna do about it? what you gonna do about it? what you gonna do? Ride through the bones and ride through the fields Have you always known what she tries to reveal your rightful home is what you can feel In the Shepherd’s Cave She's gonna take you on a ride ride the culture that sold you the devils that said she's the devil it’s a dead culture that sold you the devil that told you she’s the devil that sold you she’s evil

This is your captain speaking in one of my ever changing voices I seem to be telling you many things, what you want to believe Though I talk in code, you can’t really say that you didn’t know Though my words exposed you can’t really say, can’t really say you’ll never know Well I tried to look the other way pretend I didn’t hear the sirens If I keep going the other way where a light might shine for me And I tried to look the other way but my dead eyes were captured on the camera And now there is no other way where the siren doesn’t sing to me Well I watched the rain come down through my glass eye I tried to swim through the flood but it was just too dark for me The price of snake oil is taking a dive The institutions fell into disrepute again I tried to walk the other way as if the sirens hadn’t sounded Tried to walk the other way where a light still shines for me Tried to run the other way with my chains pulled close for comfort I found there is no other way only where the siren sings to me Desensitised to the desparate The desperate are disparate The desparate are in disrepute The desperate are in disarray Desperation diaspora The desperate are in disproportion Distance you from the desperate Distance you from the desperation Distract you from the desperate Distract you from your desperation This contract Is eternal So try to run the other way to follow the sound of the sirens Don’t look the other way there is no light to see Fight and find some other way you’ll know it when it’s quiet But now there is no other way does the siren only sing to me?

I’m not going to ask for anything anymore The answer keeps on changing from the time I asked before Why was I not listening? Why was I not listening? Why was I not listening again? I’m not going to ask for anything anymore I thought I knew what I wanted now I’m not so sure Why am I not listening Why am I not listening Why am I not listening again? In spite of everything You got through I keep on hoping for a better way I’m not going to ask for anything anymore I thought I was asking for love instead I’m still at war Now I am not listening Now I am not listening Now I am not listening again I’m not going to ask for anything any more I've given all I can; more I can’t afford That’s why I’m not listening That’s why I’m not listening Now I am not listening again In spite of everything You got through I keep on hoping for a better way Despite everything I know what’s true I seem to know that there’s another way I’m not going to ask for anything any more

You won’t remember me it was so long ago I left big footprints although they weren’t my shoes I cast no shadow but I leave echoes When you use my name as a form of abuse We will catch you when you fall So that we can hang you high We will catch you when you fall So we can hang you in comfort Oh we called him King Maybe he was the King In disguise as one of us maybe they sacrificed Horsfall to make examples of the opposition And then retired to the palace to celebrate a job well done We will catch you when you fall So that we can hang you high We will catch you when you fall So we can hang you in comfort Little Abe keeps calling for his mother We will catch you when you fall So that we can hang you high We will catch you when you fall So we can hang you in comfort

Well I keep falling off the damn motorbike It’s only got 2 wheels and I just can’t ride With all these accessories by my side but What’s not to like I got my finger on the pulse of life So pull my finger maybe I’ll feel alive have I got to go somewhere Your mama means nothing with a phone in your hand There’s people around you but they’re not in your plans Your orders come through video You want to know where you stand, you got a phone in your hand I got my finger on the pulse of life So pull my finger maybe I'll feel alive have I got to go somewhere Well I know that you’re hungry Ain’t we all of us hungry x 2 and I can see you want a fight Ain’t we all of us hungry there’s a whole damn riot going on Ain’t we all of us hungry but you’re all so quiet Ain’t we all of us hungry and I can feel the violence Ain’t we all of us hungry and I can feel the silence ain’t we all of us hungry know where to stand Ain’t we all of us hungry And all for the man who will never be hungry all for the man who will never be quiet I got my finger on the pulse of life So pull my finger baby I’m still alive I have to go somewhere Well I know I’m feeling it cos I’m so tired So pull my finger maybe I'll feel alive cos I’ve got to go somewhere

Just the simple things in life are all that I would have before me just the simple things in life are all that I would have reward me They’re coming to get you a man will lie They’re coming to get you a man will lie They’re coming to get you a man will lie A man will lie Just the simple things in life are all that I would have around me just the simple things in life and nothing else could then confound me

The sun leaves the sky to go to a better place The sun grabs hold of the sky and tries to take it to a better place The sun is part of the sky – it cannot escape It tries to think of a better way and then it just takes the one way out and falls from the sky There’s only one thing to do So the darkness takes the headcount and subjugates the light All we’ve got to sustain us is points of light Trying to call from far way Trying to call to far too many from far too many Who’s calling to who? Who’s calling to you? They try to call from under the darkness blanket Its time for me to grow my horns My horns are just a part of me My horns are just a part of me A big fuck off part of me And its time to give them pleasure The first thing they’re going to do is gangrape the truth Until its too traumatised to speak And then replace it with a branding place And then replace it with a branding space A megaphone for a better way the loudest thing you’ll hear The loudest thing you’ll see the loudest thing you’ll wear Can you feel yourself corrode? The darkness is my domain I share with all the millions The darkness is mine to claim one of many minions But the light will come again to burn away the darkness Because light is fire the very hottest you can bear And when the light comes my two horns elevate themselves and change Their shape into semi circles and join together at each end And there they form a halo My horns become a halo There they form their halo Both are just as genuine and both are just as real Both are just as genuine and both are just as real Both are gonna suck me in What do you think of that? God exists as a warning The way fairy tales caution about living in evil castles A warning tale is only as good as the story you lived through to prove it You learn nothing from your experiences without dreams disguised as if they were life I’ve got a thing for life, you know I’ve got a thing for life, you know The up is dark and light is down The up is dark so light is down The up is dark but light is down The up is dark I’ve got news for you The person sitting in on judgement day is you The passer of the sentence is you The keeper of the sentence is you The writer of this sentence is you Take over! Desperate times call for desperate pleasures Desperate times call for desperate pleasures The cry, is forever in there? The cry is forever in there The cry, is forever inthere? The cry is forever, in there Desperate times call for desperate pleasures Desperate times call for desperate pleasures Desperate times Desperate times Desperate times Desperate times Desperate pleasures Desperate pleasures Desperate pleasures Desperate pleasures We’ll cry forever in there We’ve been crying forever in there We’ve been crying forever Is forever in there? I want to get in to find out I can’t get in to find out Because my dress is inappropriate

Welcome to hell or public services Got your hope in a black magazine You’re wishing well but you could do better Wanting doesn’t wake me when I’m not asleep Who the fuck is Paris Hilton? Take me to the place where burberry never fades And my mountain of bling is a composite whore Gonna shoot you in the money and make love to your blood If it wasn’t for you, tube, I wouldn’t want your place Who the fuck is Paris Hilton? In debtors prison we will burn your effigy In the mall prism we will bomb your effigy In estate wasteland we celebrate your deathly wealth You can go nowhere cos that’s where you lead Who the Fuck is Paris Hilton?

Did I bring you down Did my words not match the sounds My sights never saw your eyes Or can’t you say just what it was Well, it’s the same down here I’m travelling off topic Spend my time off topic I’ve been grounded off topic I never really knew just what it was It’s the same down here I've been grounded in irrelevance! its the same down here We all feel the same We all see the same We all look the same The first shall be last And the last shall be last The first shall be cursed And last will be passed The first will be stopped and the last will be blocked The first has been lost The last is a ghost
