Track Name: Put on a show
(Whoa whoa whoa)

Bow down, you’re holding me back now. Holding me back
Break down, holding me back now. Holding me back
Break down, building walls all around
Break down, all the laws in this town

(whoa whoa whoa)
It’s time to stand up now, stop being pushed round now, put on a show and take a bow

Now it’s time, to build something massive, truly colossal.
Make a line, brick by town, city by crown.
Make a stand, guided by a master plan
Make a stand, make a mark on this land.

(Whoa whoa whoa)
It’s time to stand up now, stop being pushed round now, put on a show and take a bow bow bow



Whats done is done (It’s over now),
its in the past (Three years have passed),
rebuild this house (It’s made of glass) ,
its built to last, (For one more chance)

Track Name: Down from your skies
Coming down, when you're being shown around,
an overwhelming town, we represent the crown.
When night turns into day and I'm drifting by
calling out my name when I'm flying high
I will feel, you on the other side


when, you throw, a dart into space it has to land somewhere,

Down down down, slow down down down,
mermaids and clowns, I see the floor make sounds,
Now we lead the plays on foreign ground,
Planting seeds of home with the hare and hounds,
Sooner than I can say, I’m on the other side


when, you throw, a dart into space it has to land somewhere,


You know why, the British pass you by
We tear the clouds, down from your skies


I said I don’t know how, nine days from now,
my mind wont allow, release from the shroud
When night turns into day and I'm drifting by
calling out my name when I'm flying high
I will feel, you on the other side


when, you throw, a dart into space it has to land somewhere,


You know why, the British pass you by
We tear the clouds, down from your skies
Track Name: Time slows down
You won’t be so quick to mock it
When the power of the sun is in your pocket
A survival of the fittest and eugenics the same thing
The religion of freedom begins to sing

The society plane is going down the pan
With Gorilla gone, is there hope for man
A primate teacher with a message to deliver
Without man, is there hope for Gorilla.

You’ve pissed her off, and who is to blame
We’re the ones going down in flames
When you’re gone, and your grip releases
We’re the ones picking up the pieces.

Time slows down, right under your nose
Time slows down, how nobody knows.

To fix this place we’ve got some serious tools
You can play the game but you don’t write the rules
There’s no black and white only shades of grey
And we try and we try to keep the wolves at bay

The society plane is going down the pan
With Gorilla gone is there hope for man
A primate teacher with a message to deliver
Without man, is there hope for Gorilla.

Time slows down, right under your nose
Time slows down, how nobody knows.
Time slows down, time slows down
Right under your nose.

Teacher seeks a student, must have earnest desire to save the world
Teacher seeks a student, must have earnest desire to save the world

Time slows down, right under your nose
Time slows down, how nobody knows.
Time slows down, time slows down
Right under your nose.
Track Name: Why should we change
So Here’s my second chance
To show you who I am.
I’m a little boy
In the body of a man.

I’ve got a simplistic view
of how this story will unfold,
Always doing what I want
and never doing what I’m told.



So why should we change,
We’re set in our ways
We’re making a lot of noise living this way
So why should we change, why should we change



We sat down, We sat down
We sat down
And we said we’ll never let it die
Never let it die
Never let it

When will we make a stand?
Stand tall and raise our hands,
Tuned into nothing else,
We’ve, made, our plans.


Join together and we’ll stand up for whatever
Join together and we’ll ride this bad weather
A fight or flight moment captured in time
So sick of the waiting in line.



So why should we change,
We’re set in our ways
We’re making a lot of noise living this way
So why should we change, why should we change






We sat down, We sat down
We sat down
And we said we’ll never let it die
Never let it die
Never let it

A dream unjustified to some,
To just give up and run,
We are aiming high,
we aim for the sun.

Will you force me to change my stance,
Your plans are made and the pieces advance.
Time and time again condescension will rain,
Once you’ve had a taste life’s never the same.
