FOX

Verse 

Morn, Morning Light, I sleep until the night

No-one can find me here, I see it's bright, I'll disappear

Chorus

And Lone, Lonely Life, waiting for the night

Verse

The day goes on, while I try avoid the gun

In my den I hide, until the time is right 

Chorus

And I said Lone, Lonely Life, Waiting for the Night

Waiting for the Night

Verse

I traveled into the night, Haunted by the moonlight

Along my path I creep, Hunt when everyone sleeps 

Chorus

And I said Lone, Lonely Life, Waiting for the Night

Waiting for the Night

Chorus with Holding “I said Lone x 3”, Lonely Life , waiting for the night

 

LET ME HAVE MY SIDE

Intro 

There ain't no heaven, when you can't see that sky, and I won't last, through this damn cold night

So Lay down your arms, and dance to our cry, seeing all this trouble, through our Human Eyes.

Hear those church bells ringing, ringing to die, singing the song, of a souls goodbye

a souls good bye

battle my, battle my, battle x4, my mind

Verse

I sign my heart, just to be the one, just to be the one, who would have done,

who would have had last, who would have had grasped, who would have had forgotten the torrential past,

And I see the signs, and I have heard them rhymes, but nothing could stop this tunnel mind

to preach the pride of an open mind,

Chorus

Let me have my side x 6

Verse

I've found the sun, the diamond, the rum, but it's no good if I am the only one,

for these have to be shared, remembered and cared, with a man's greed, the peace seed will not be spared

so let’s dig it a hole, and protect it's soul, if this tree was let grow, what would the media show,

a man of power being kind, this enlightens my mind,

Chorus

Let me have my side x 6

Bridge 

And you give the sun away, we won't fight another day x 2

Let me have my side x 2

WE GO BACK

Chorus 

We go back, yes, we go back, we go waaaaay, we go way way back x 2

Verse

I know you this-long time, we were wild, we crossed many the line

Sank whiskey every second day, I had your back, I hope we never loose our way

Chorus 

Because, we go back, yes, we go back, we go waaaaay, we go way way back x 2

I thought I was mad, but that white jacket better fitted you

Bye bye sweet goodbye, to every Monday morning, we could only hide

 

Chorus 

Because we go back, yes, we go back, we go waaaaay, we go way way back x 2

LOVE IS LIFE

Verse

Look through the valley of Life's crazy eyes

Every Element of Every Surprise

Gaze through the windows that leads down to her soul      

Thread unknown waters, achieving your own goal

 

Chorus

Love is Life, and Love is a fool

Don't you fear no love, and I might meet you

Love is power and Love is for the brave

Live it's adventure and avoid the coward's cave

 

Verse

Climb the mountains to land at your shore

Every corner you know I will try and explore

Be with your people as powerful as I can          

Respect every culture, respect every man

 

Verse

Bag on my back and thumb in the air

along the road we walk, without worry, without care 

dance beneath the stars and howl out to the moon

when the freedom is heard, the harmony comes soon

 

Chorus

Love is Life, and Love is a fool

Don't you fear no love, and I might meet you

Love is power and Love is for the brave

Live it's adventure and avoid the coward's cave

SOLD MY SOUL

Intro

I sold my soul, I sold my soul, I sold my soul to my mind's devil goal

My mind is the devil, oh my mind is the devil, my mind is the devil that control's me

Verse

I feel enslaved in what i’ve built, I feel that rage, I feel that guilt

I don't know what to feel anymore, but all is lost walking out that door

Chorus 

I sold my soul, I sold my soul, I sold my soul to my mind

Yes my mind is the devil, oh my mind is the devil, and now I’ve lost my mind
 

Verse

I cursed the whiskey, I cursed the stout, I cursed my gambling hand, 

I sold the farm to pay that man, and I am lost without the land

Verse

Oh Lord I cursed you, like I cursed everyone else, until I realised,

That I am the one who cursed my soul, and now I curse my mind

Chorus

Yes I sold my soul, I sold my soul, I sold my soul to my mind

My mind's the devil, oh my mind's the devil, 

and now I've lost my mind

and now I've lost my mind

and now I have lost my mind

 

Because I sold my soul, I sold my soul, I sold my soul to my mind

My mind's the devil, oh my mind is the devil, and now I have cursed my mind

WE ARE YOUNG

Verse
I devote my open hand, to live with you on this land
Worship this wild chosen place, wrapped up in its warm embrace

Chorus

We are young x 2

 

Verse
Cherish its intimate joy, discard that absent ploy
Exist to be care free, that's the challenge set for me

Chorus
We are young x 4

Bridge

I won't be afraid to never abide
I'l swear to the Gods that I will
 re-wild

Verse 
I’ll let them emotions sing, I’ll let them wild horses be seen
Adore this loving present day, you have guided me on this way

Chorus

We are young x 4

THE BROWN TREE

Verse

The brown tree falls on everyone

It picks you out from beneath the sun

But you are not the only one

It scopes the land with it's shadow gun

 

So pull your heart of that falling leaf

For it hits the ground, you will loose belief

And don't let this tree shadow you life

Protect yourself with Miss Destinies knife

Verse 

The brown tree falls on everyone

It picks you out from beneath the sun

But you are not the only one

It scopes the land with it's shadow gun

 

So Hack it, Sack it, burn it down

pull its roots from beneath the ground

for you are not the falling son

the rising warrior you will become

the rising warrior you will become

Chorus

Are you the one to protect me from this shadowed gun, Are you the One

Are you the one to protect me from this shadowed gun, Are you the One

Because I sit right next to you and the roots just loosen from round my shoe, can I sit right next to you

Yes I sit right next to you and the roots just loosen from round my shoe, I'l just sit right next to you, can I sit right NEXT to you

Verse 

So Help me take out my green watering can

and plant a seed were it use to stand 

and let it be a sign to every man

that the brown tree will never poison this land again 

Chorus instrumental

REMEMBER ME

Chorus

Remember me, when you can't see me, i'l be down by those oak trees, remember me

Remember me, when you can't see me, i'l be down by those oak trees, come find me

 

Verse (Luna Moon)

You keep us all bright even-when-the-night falls in, 

I fell in love with you the first time I heard you scream

I play my songs to you and you know my groove

You write, you design, you make me so proud of you

your gentle soul, your caring mode shines through

Don't care what others think of you, you just be you

 

Verse (Oscar Sun) 

Your cheeky smile, sets all things right, for me

Your warrior drive will keep you alive and free

The sun is always with you, because you are true

Spear of the gods, your name has the it all, and so

protect our chlann, you are the man for sure

just drum and I'll be-there with you, just give me the cue

 

Chorus

Remember me, even when you can't see me, i'l be down by those oak trees, Remember me

 

Verse (Oisin Star)

A tank of a man, with a poetic hand which shows

Your strong but your bright like the stars of the night that glow

Your nordic blood-flows to a Celtic soul

The men will follow you where ever you go with might

Lead with your heart and you will always do what is right

the myths are all your own, and you are not alone

 

Chorus

Remember me, even when you can't see me, i'l be down by those oak trees, Remember me

Remember me, even when you can't see me, i'l be down by those oak trees, come find me

I'l be down by those oak trees, come find me

MAC DEE (AND WE RUN)

Verse

You cross the ocean to tell me

the waves crash and try reveal

your white horse controls that sea

In-this-dream, you alert-me, mac dee

Chorus

And we run, yes we run, from this dream finding me x2

 

I could see that fear in your eyes

why I had not even realised

you had journeyed this-far to me

to warn me of that banshee

 

Chorus

And we run, yes we run, from this dream finding me x2

finding me 

 

Yes we run, Yes we run, from this dream finding me x2 

Yes we RUUUUUUNNNNNN, from this dream finding me x2

Finding Me

I WON'T HOLD BACK

Verse

Wait for the sun dream of a quiet beggar's mess 

Lift up the doors of my thought lock chess 

Loose the glory of the feeders silver spoon

Reach for the walls before my city is ruined

 

Chorus 

I won't hold back, I just let myself go

 

Don't let my fear, appear and linger through

the corrupted wall of someone else's view

I teach my experience, remember-what i’ve been thought

life is just a dream but it’s got to be sought

 

Chorus 

I won't hold back, no no, I won't hold back

I won't hold back, no no, I won't hold back

I just let myself go

 

Verse instrumental 

 

Chorus 

I won't hold back, no no, I won't hold back

I won't hold back, no no, I won't hold back

I just let myself go
