Track Name: Voodoo
The smell of acrid smoke,
A pot, it bubbles on the heat,
With verses softly spoke,
And shuffling of many feet,
Shadows dance on the wall,
You have no clue what you should do,
Confused, you take a fall,
You've just been had by voodoo.

The voodoo's washing over me,
I don't know,
I don't see...
Track Name: Wake Up
Said it's easy to do nothing when the sun is out,
It's even easier to do nothing when it rains all day,
It's easy to do nothing when the world around you's rushing to the rhythm of life's humming refrain.

Don't watch the world pass you by,
A wake-up call to open your eyes.

Said it's easy to do nothing when you're feeling low,
It's even easier to do nothing when those good times go,
It's easier to slow up when all tell you to grow up and go out and face the changing of time.

Don't watch the world pass you by,
A wake-up call to open your eyes.

Wake up,
Get up,
Stand up,
Live it up.
Track Name: Sidewinder
On the hill, where they stood,
Overlooking what they could, the wind a-blowing.

In the valley down below,
There was some peculiar show, the lights a-glowing.

Breathing fire, pulling shapes,
Normal rules just don't relate,
Come and find your special place,
Better run or you'll be late.

It's called the Sidewinder,
Release the freak inside you,
Come on and lay your body down to rest.
It's called the Sidewinder,
Look out for who's beside you,
Just letting bodies do what they do best.

As a crowd gather round,
People flocking to the sound of drums a-beating.

Rhythm running through their heads,
No one heard the words they said, just rhymes repeating.

Tine, it seemed to pass them by,
There was magic in their eye,
No one seemed to wonder why,
Call them in, there's no reply.

It's called the Sidewinder,
Release the freak inside you,
Come on and lay your body down to rest.
It's called the Sidewinder,
Look out for who's beside you,
Just letting bodies do what they do best.

People travelled 'cross the land,
To view the spectacle at hand, so appealing.

Folks were taken to the hill,
To pursue the latest thrill and its unveiling.

They were twisting side to side,
With an element of pride,
They were really in there stride,
In the dance, they did reside.

It's called the Sidewinder,
Release the freak inside you,
Come on and lay your body down to rest.
It's called the Sidewinder,
Look out for who's beside you,
Just letting bodies do what they do best.
Track Name: Tel Aviv
We leave Tel Aviv to feed their greed,
Whilst the world believes it is their creed,
The Arabs bleed, the mothers grieve whilst the children plead...

Dancing high up in the sky,
Apaches fly over, terrified,
This war's a lie,
How many tears will fall tonight?

And nobody hears the innocents cry,
In the senate parliament, political sty,
The rabbis say with an ancient sigh,
"That religion helps the blood to dry".

Dancing high up in the sky,
Apaches fly over, terrified,
This war's a lie,
How many tears will fall tonight?

We don’t need to make no martyrs,
Out of Islam’s sons and daughters,
We will give nor take no orders,
But I’ll lead this horse to water.

Please take this right,
I’m no anti-Semite
Every man has the right to stand up and fight.
There’s new light,
Technological sight,
We have the choice.
Turn a wrong to a right.
Track Name: Take A Step
If I had to go the distance,
Would you go the distance, too?
Take a step and I'll meet you there, halfway.

Don't stop when you hear the thunder,
Don't stop when you feel the rain,
Take a step and I'll meet you there, halfway.

I've outgrown this home, so I say...let's go.

I can't go alone, so you say...let's go.
