Track Name: The Web
THE WEB
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson

Somewhere out there she taps her fingers on her phone
She’s telling people everything they need to know
With updated status sharing her life with the world
It all caught up on the web
It all caught up on the web

She just wants you to see happy pictures of family
Living life as they should

Oh but when worlds collide and the stars align
And she’s caught in time on the strands of the web

Then someone out there taps his fingers on his phone
He’s provoking danger getting ready for the war to come
They’ll be fire and fury like the world has never known
And it all started on the web
It all started on the web

He is hypocrisy he can lie in transparency
Even laugh in your face

Oh but when worlds collide and the stars align
He’ll be caught in time on the strands of the web

A tangled web you will weave
When you choose to lie and deceive
You have to watch what you say

Oh but when worlds collide and the stars align
You’ll be caught in time on the strands of the web
Track Name: Seize The Day
SEIZE THE DAY
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson

If we only had our hearts we could feel more than we’re feeling
If we only had a pen we could write it all down
If we only gave it time we could be more than we’re being
If we only gave it love we could turn our lives around
When every day gets a little bit shorter
With every move there’s a little more pain
We can’t go back to what we used to
This life only goes one way
Until the lights go out… Until we close our eyes
But until that day can we all say that it’s good to be alive

Can we make the most of all the time we have left
Until all the stars go out before our eyes
We should seize the day… We should seize the day
In every single way...

If we only had a plan we could do more than we’re doing
If we only had a voice we could say it out loud
When every sound gets a little bit louder
And every word gets a little more stale
We can’t go back to what we used to
This life only goes one way
Until the lights go out… Until we close our eyes
But until that day can we all say that it’s good to be alive

Can we make the most of all the time we have left
Until all the stars go out before our eyes
We should seize the day… We should seize the day
In every single way...
Track Name: The Veil
THE VEIL
Music: Marc Atkinson/Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson

When days are like shattering glass
They’re so fragile they don’t last
It’s like chasing waterfalls…

When hope seems a whole world away
And you’ve not got the faith to pray
For some kind of miracle…

But is falling just all we can do
Or is something inside me and you
Like some sort of fairy tale
Is it hidden and blinkered from view
And buried inside of the truth
In our own private wishing well…

But if there’s a river in me
It’s so far away from the sea
That it’s running on empty…

Is there nothing we can do or say
Or are we just counting down to Judgement Day
Like it’s some kind of miracle…

But the hope for salvation is free
It’s just between God and me
They’ll be no hiding place…
Is it fear that I’ll see in His face
Or just eternal grace
God only knows…

If all that I said was wrong
And I wrote it all down in a song
Would it be just the fairy tale
Of the face behind The Veil…
Track Name: Parachute
PARACHUTE
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson

Free falling it’s such a long way down
There’s no stalling it’s time to jump… Jump now

You’ve got a man on your back and he’s wearing a pack
And he’s got your life is his hands
You’ve got a world far below and a long way to go
Before your feet are back on the ground

Open up that parachute I want to see it in the sky
I’m gonna trace those colours through the blue
So open up your parachute
I’m gonna give you all I’m worth
But I need you back on the earth

Free falling it’s such a long way down
Sky diving floating through those clouds

You’ve got a man on your back and he’s wearing a pack
And he’s got to pull that chord
You’ve got the world far below and it’s so far to go
But you’ve got no chance of getting bored

Open up that parachute I want to see it in the sky
I’m gonna trace those colours through the blue
So open up that parachute
I’m gonna give you all I’m worth
But I need you back on the earth
I need you back on the earth...
Track Name: Somebody Save Us
SOMEBODY SAVE US
Music: Marc Atkinson/Iain Jennings
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Marc Atkinson

Where are we going?
What are we heading to?
The rack or the ruin?
How will we see it through?
The mess that we’re making
Tearing our world in two
And we don’t know what to do
We don’t know what to do any more
We don’t know what to do
We don’t know what to do any more

Can somebody save us
Save us from ourselves
Can somebody save us
Save us from this hell

The leaders of nations
They play their war of words
With childish behaviour
Decide the fate of our world
‘Cos they hold the power
To simply destroy us all
And they don’t know what to do
They don’t know what to do any more
They don’t know what to do
They don’t know what to do any more

Can somebody save us
Save us from ourselves
Can somebody save us
Save us from this hell...
Track Name: What's Your Name
WHAT’S YOUR NAME
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson

Hey what’s your name
I see behind that veil
Although you try so hard to deny
There’s more to this than meets the eye

There’s more to this than meets the eye
So can you just identify and even try to justify
And meet the eye of me
There’s more to this than meets the eye
So can you just please testify and even try to pacify
And meet the eye of me

Hey what’s your name
It seems that nothing’s changed
There’s more to this than meets the eye…

Can you show me who you really are
Can you tell me how it got this far
Can you be the only one to blame
And can you start by giving me your name

Hey what’s your name
You sound a little strange
There’s more to this than meets the eye
So can you just identify and even try to justify
And meet the eye of me
There’s more to this than meets the eye
So can you just please testify and even try to pacify
And meet the eye of me

Can you show me who you really are
Can you tell me how it got this far
Can you be the only one to blame
And can you start by giving me your name
Track Name: Seventh Heaven
SEVENTH HEAVEN
Music: Marc Atkinson/Iain Jennings
Lyrics and Vocal Melodies: Marc Atkinson
Intro: Iain Jennings

One by one they all fall down
Two by two they form a crowd
Three by three they live in harmony
That sounds good to me

Four by four they go to war
Five by five try to stay alive
Six by six they still play their dirty tricks
Just to get their fix

Seventh Heaven… Seventh Heaven

Eight by eight they all spread hate
Nine by nine they tow the line
Ten by ten they do it all over again
And again and again…

Seventh Heaven… Seventh Heaven

One by one they all fall down...
Track Name: Let Me Out
LET ME OUT
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Marc Atkinson


Let me out… Let… Let me out…

You can lock me up and throw away the key
You can tie me down but you can’t imprison me
‘Cos I’ve a restless soul and a burning need
So open up this cage oh and set me free

Let me out… Let… Let me out…

Where’s the fire escape? Is there a safety room?
‘Cos I’ve got an exit plan and I’m going to use it soon

Don’t make me shout
The walls are closing around me now
Let me out…

Let me out… Let… Let me out…

I need to break these chains that still shackle me
I’ll gather up my strength with one bound I’ll be free

Don’t make me shout
The walls are closing around me now
Let me out…
Track Name: Awoken
AWOKEN
Music and vocal melodies: Iain Jennings
Lyrics: Marc Atkinson/Iain Jennings

Words, words are like gold then stories are told
And lives can be broken
So please just try to watch what you say
Just try to live for the day
Just try to be more awoken

Life’s unpredictable it’s a merry-go-round
Sometimes we have no control we’re either up or we’re down
It’s up to each of us to be true to ourselves

Love, love is the key within you and me
That keeps the world turning
So share with everyone everywhere
And be more aware of lessons your learning

There’s something magical in the way that it sounds
When you think before you let the words come out
It’s philosophical so believe when I say…

Look before you jump over
Think before you speak over
Give before you take over
learn before you rule over

Now, now is the time lets make it shine
And not just for our own
‘Cos we’ve so much to learn and bridges to burn
But we know we’re not alone

Life’s unpredictable it’s a merry-go-round
Sometimes we have no control we’re either up or we’re down
It’s up to each of us to be true to ourselves

Look before you jump over
Think before you speak over
Give before you take over
learn before you rule over
Track Name: Across The Great Divide
ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Marc Atkinson

I ride the whirlwind as it carries me
I hold out my hands at my sides
And I float on the breeze
I find myself in a far away land
Where you’re still alive
And if it is alright with you
I just want to stay by your side

I see you in my dreams with echoes of a time
Reaching out to me across the great divide…

You watch me sleeping and you kiss my head
I hold on to your presence whilst I lay in my bed
Then I find myself in a cold darkened room
Where you’ve disappeared
I try to get to sleep again
But all I can see are my tears

I see you in my dreams with echoes of a time
Reaching out to me across the great divide…

Everywhere I go I see your white feathers
Falling in front of me
Giving me the message that you’re still with me
And will always be
I know I’ll see you in my dreams…

Fade to black I hide the view
Take me back to be with you I miss you

You’ll forever be always a part of me
Just simply out of view
And when I close my eyes I start to visualise
And all I see is you… ‘Cos I miss you

And all the memories we made from the cradle to the grave
I will remember them all… I’ll remember them all...

I saw your moon halo… I saw your soul...

I’ll see you in my dreams with echoes of a time
Reaching out to me across the great divide…
Track Name: Rise Up
RISE UP
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Iain Jennings/Marc Atkinson

When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
Can you lift each other up

Rise up people...

When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
Can you lift each other up

Darkness approaching… Confusion is reigning...
Each one for themselves is the doctrine they’re teaching…
So can we raise our hands then lift up our hearts
And share the same voice
So can we raise our hands then lift up our hearts
And make the right choice

When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
Can you lift each other up

Rise up people…

Darkness approaching… Confusion is reigning...
Thinking… Deciding...
So can we raise our hands then lift up our hearts
And share the same voice
So can we raise our hands then lift up our hearts
And make the right choice

When it all falls down can you reach for higher ground
When the wolves call round will you lift your brother up
Can you lift each other up
Track Name: Don't Let It End Like This
DON’T LET IT END LIKE THIS
Music: Iain Jennings
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Marc Atkinson

Where did all this pain come from?
That’s what I want to know
It arrived out of nowhere
There seems no end to its flow
Can’t always blame other people
Sometimes we’ve only ourselves to blame
We’ve knocked over the pieces
No one’s won this game…

Please can you dry your eyes
And don’t cry any more
Please can we just talk it over
Don’t let it end like this
Don’t let it end like this

Now it’s time to sort this out
And put all that hurt away
There’s no need to be angry
We both can have our own say
You know I’m not here to hurt you
I’m just wanting to see you smile
So can you bring down the wall now
I’ll make it worth your while…

Please can you dry your eyes
And don’t cry any more
Please can we just talk it over
Don’t let it end like this
Don’t let it end like this
