Track Name: This Ain't Living (Single Edit)
This Ain't Living

We are still only slaves
In a world with open gates
Close your eyes then you’ll see
What it means to be free

This ain’t living
This ain’t living no, no, no

We belong to a state
That whispers not love but hate
You can choose to fall in line
Or try real hard to see the signs

This ain’t living
This ain’t living no, no, no

It’s about time
That we need
A revolution of the mind
It’s about time
That we need
A revolution of the mind

This ain’t living
This ain’t living no, no, no

Whilst we stand on freedom’s shore
Praying for one of them brand new storms
I can feel it so can you
But the question is what are we gonna do

This ain’t living
This ain’t living no, no, no

It’s about time
That we need
A revolution of the mind
It’s about time
That we need
A revolution of the mind

This ain’t living
This ain’t living no, no, no
Track Name: Land of Paradise
Land Of Paradise

The is no such place so I’ve been told
Because, if there was we would have found it by now
It is just a dream son, just a dream that lives in our minds
Constructed by the world that plays out before us
A dream that will never come to light, like a dying star in a galaxy far, far away from here
Distant galaxy that can only be imagined, because that’s all we can do

We are far away, away from home
And my memories ain’t what they use to be
But I still believes in the power of love
So I’ll show the world that the is nothing wrong
To be seen a child of this universe

Some day we'll find
Some day we'll find
Our land of paradise

Well I choose to hope for more
Like a hungry child begging for life, begging for a better tomorrow
Because, tomorrow doesn't belong to me, you or them, it belongs to the future, it belongs to our children
Tomorrow is a place that has to be better than today
Where all mans differences can be celebrated
Celebrated like a brand new day that promises a chance to make a change

I speak for my generation
And celebrate what we will become
Let’s build upon our freedom song
And show the world that the is nothing wrong
To be seen a child of this universe

Some day we'll find
Some day we'll find
Some day we'll find
Some day we'll find
Our land of paradise
