1. On The Air

We’re on the air tonight
We’re on the air tonight

Reach up high as you wave good-bye
On the air, on the air tonight
You can fly, you can fly all night
No-one’s there, everything’s all right

Communicate, extrapolate
Just sign up if you dare
Accommodate, just don’t be late
We’re living on the air

I wanna be miles and miles away
If you show it, I can load it,
I can fight it, I can be it
I’ll send you a little something
But you might not even see it
I wanna be miles and miles away
I can run it, I can sum it,
I can hide it, I can steal it
When I’m goin’ a little fast
Sometimes I crash but I don’t feel it

Communicate, extrapolate
Just sign up if you dare
Accommodate, just don’t be late
We’re living on the air

Is it just me? Didn’t you feel that
Or am I the only one?
Cos’ if it’s just me, then
I’m on the air on my own

You know and I know
That you might be a no-show
So where to? Only God knows
So just say hello

I wanna be miles and miles away
If you show it, I can load it,
I can fight it, I can be it
I’ll send you a little something
But you might not even see it
I wanna be miles and miles away
I can run it, I can sum it,
I can hide it, I can steal it
When I’m goin’ a little fast
Sometimes I crash but I don’t feel it

Here we go, turn the lights down low
Gives the screen such an eerie glow
You don’t know where you’re gonna go
But, it’s all right, let the night unfold

Communicate, extrapolate
Just sign up if you dare
Accommodate, just don’t be late
We’re living on the air

Is it just me? Didn’t you feel that
Or am I the only one?
Cos’ if it’s just me, then
I’m on the air on my own

You know and I know
That you might be a no-show
So where to? Only God knows
So just say hello

2. Keep It Reel

Of all the deeds of daring-do
You think the daring dare to
Dream about the one who saves the day
The tiny grain of sands of
Time goes by a sigh is just
A sigh until the image fades to gray
And if you change your mind you
Pause for thought but not the kind
Of thought that ever makes you look away
And as the curtain rises on the
New horizons keep your eyes on
Big screen magic on display

One look, you’re hooked for the rest of your life
Just one look, you’ll be hooked and you’ll never know why

This is the here & now and
How it all comes down to you
Believing fantasy is here to stay
Now you see it now you don’t forget
That what you see is what you get
The stage is set so make my day

Come inside, you’ve got nothing to fear
And tell everyone that you first saw it here
Take a seat, tell me, how do you feel
Tonight is the night we’ll be keeping it reel

The tiny grain of sands of
Time goes by a sigh is just
A sigh until the image fades to gray
And as the curtain rises on the
New horizons keep your eyes on
Big screen magic on display

One look, you’re hooked for the rest of your life
Just one look, you’ll be hooked and you’ll never know why

Come inside, you’ve got nothing to fear
And tell everyone that you first saw it here
Take a seat, tell me, how do you feel
Tonight is the night we’ll be keeping it reel

Keep it reel

This is the here & now and
How it all comes down to you
Believing fantasy is here to stay
Now you see it now you don’t forget
That what you see is what you get
The stage is set so make my day

Come inside, you’ve got nothing to fear
And tell everyone that you first saw it here
Take a seat, tell me, how do you feel
Tonight is the night we’ll be keeping it reel

(repeat)

Keep it reel

3. I'm Back

Now what? What’s the problem?
You’ve got time to solve ‘em
Choose one, knock it over
That’s done, you’re getting closer

I’m back, I’m back, I’m back, I’m back

It’s dark, don’t I know it
Look smart, I can’t show it
Things change, you can’t control it
New game, are you up for it?
Time’s up, you’re not living
Clear cut, it’s indecision
Can’t wait, that’s a give-in
It’s fate, so who’s the villain

I’m back, I’m back, I’m back, I’m back

Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
So I can start again
Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
I wanna start again

What’s up? The fear of fallin’
So what, you may learn something’
Get up and pick a number
Don’t stop or you’ll go under

I’m back, I’m back, I’m back, I’m back

Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
So I can start again
Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
I need to start again

I’m back, I’m back, I’m back, I’m back
I’m back, I’m back, I’m back, I’m back

Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
So I can start again
Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes

Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
So I can start again
Bring on the rain
Clear my eyes
I want to start again

(repeat)

4. If I Were You

I’ve been told the heart is fragile at the best of times
But how much pain should we endure?
There’s something to be said for suffering & compromise
But I know one thing is for sure

Just because this time you’re sure you’re not to blame
The answer still remains the same

If I were you I’d disregard the past,
Remember what they say
The sun will one day re-appear

If I were you I’d catch my breath
Just close the door & walk away
& watch the clouds all disappear

I know your heart is torn, for that you have my sympathy
Believe me I know how it feels
The time between each breath may seem like an eternity
But given time the heart does heal

Now, just because this time you’re sure you’re not to blame
The answer still remains the same

If I were you I’d show the world
You’ll live to love another day
So let your smile replace the tears

If I were you I’d do my best
To hide my state of disarray
& if you need me I’ll be here

5. Outside Looking In

As the world turns I’ve got a front row seat
And a guiding light is watching over me
If you make me an offer that I can’t refuse
You can bet your life I’ve got nothing to lose

If you’d like to know of late where I’ve bin
I’ve bin here on the outside looking in
Still waiting for my ship to come in
I’m here on the outside looking in

If it’s a room with a view, I’m on the edge of my seat
And if the price is right, that’s good enough for me
I’m just a sole survivor of big brother’s schemes
& I can seize the moment in my field of dreams

If you’d like to know of late where I’ve bin
I’ve bin here on the outside looking in
Still waiting for my ship to come in
I’m here on the outside looking in

If you’d like to know of late where I’ve bin
I’ve bin here on the outside looking in
I’m still waiting for my ship to come in
Still here on the outside looking in

If you’d like to know of late where I’ve bin
I’ve bin here on the outside
I’ve bin here on the outside looking in

Still here on the outside looking in
I’m still waiting for my ship to come in
Here on the outside looking in
Still here on the outside looking in

6. Don't Look Now

Are you ready for the big bang?
And is it time for the real thing?
Are you sure that you want it?
And if you get it, will you flaunt it?
There’s so much more that you could do
I think it’s time for a breakthrough
Looks as though you can taste it

Don’t look now
Just come and get, what are you waiting for?
Don’t look now
You know you gotta know,
You know you gotta know you’ve bin here before

Take a bite from the apple
It’s not too hard to handle
Well I can tell that you want to
Make a move or it’ll haunt you
What’s in the mirror, can you see you?
Can’t let the lighting deceive you
Here’s your chance don’t you waste it

Don’t look now
Just come and get, what are you waiting for?
Don’t look now
You know you gotta know,
You know you gotta know you’ve bin here before
Don’t look now
There’s nowhere else to go if you want some more
Don’t look now
If you want it you can get it
You think you’re gonna stop but you need some more
Do you want some more?

(repeat)

7. Live At Five

We are working on it every day
To fill you full of doubt
The clock is tickin’ & we won’t get paid
Unless we knock you out
You know we try to lead a simple life
There is no middle ground
& all we have to do is shine our lights
Where trouble can be found

Now we’re live at five
And we’ll be here all night
Now we’re live at five
Don’t look so surprised

If you need some good news
You’ll have to wait until we’re through
‘Cos this isn’t life, it’s live at five

When it gets ugly you can look away
That’s what we’re all about
You know to us it’s just another day
We’re gonna knock you out

Now we’re live at five
You’ll be up all night
Now we’re live at five
Don’t look so surprised

If you need some good news
You’ll have to wait until we’re through
‘Cos this isn’t life, it’s live at five
So who did what to who
We’re gonna bring it right to you
And we do it right
We’re live at five

Now we’re live at five…..Now we’re live at five

(repeat chorus)

8. Back To Where We Started

I’ll tell you what, I’ll show you how,
I’ll let you in, but no, not now
It’s not the time or the place
Forget about those days
I’m in control, stay tuned you’ll know
What’s goin’ on after the show
Enjoy the silence while you can

Round, round, we’re just back where we started
Down, down, don’t sink to the bottom
Switch, turn and play with the volume
Far enough, we’re back where we started

If you don’t like just what you see
You can turn off your T.V.
But there’s just no guarantee
The world will go away
So just sit down, turn on surround
And feed the media machine
And try to find out what it means

Round, round, we’re just back where we started
Down, down, don’t sink to the bottom
Switch, turn and play with the volume
Far enough, we’re back where we started

I’m in control, stay tuned you’ll know
What’s goin’ on after the show
Enjoy the silence while you can

Round, round, we’re just back where we started
Down, down, don’t sink to the bottom
Switch, turn and play with the volume
Far enough, we’re back where we started

(repeat)

9. Believe

Talk to me
Tell me how it feels to be misunderstood
Talk to me
Explain to me what life is like inside your world

But don’t worry, there’s no hurry
My impatience knows no fury
So don’t worry, there’s no hurry
Take your time, tell me if you’re ready

Come to me
I will give and receive
All I need is for you to believe

Talk to me
When it feels as though the walls are closing in
Talk to me
Day or night, I understand the shape you’re in

But don’t worry, there’s no hurry
My impatience knows no fury
So don’t worry, there’s no hurry
Take your time, tell me if you’re ready

Come to me I will give and receive
All I need is for you to believe
Come to me I can help you feel free
Take my hand & understand that I believe

10. Don't Make A Sound

Don’t make a sound
Keep your ear to the ground
They’re not far away
They could be here today

Who can you trust
Shake their hands if you must
But don’t walk away
While you’re still on display

Who’s on the line
And did you give them a sign
Your fortune & fame
Is the name of the game

We’re counting down
Today we’re going underground
Don’t turn around

So wait for the sign
It’s all yours by design

Please don’t make a sound
We’re going underground
Please don’t make a sound
You don’t know who’s around

Isn’t it strange
How the colours will change
But the level of fear
Never quite disappears

We’re counting down
Today we’re going underground
Don’t turn around

The secret is out
Was there ever a doubt?

Please don’t make a sound
We’re going underground
Please don’t make a sound
You don’t know who’s around

Tell me, can’t you see you’ve had enough
I can see that you have had enough
Tell me when you think you’ve had enough
Can’t you see that you have had enough

Devastate, violate, they’re gonna do it
Make it up, it’s a buck, that’s how they do it
Escalate, suffocate, they’re gonna do it
Given up, had enough, don’t let ‘em do it

Tell me, can’t you see you’ve had enough
I can see that you have had enough
Tell me when you think you’ve had enough
Can’t you see that you have had enough

Don’t make a sound
Devastate, violate, they’re gonna do it
Don’t turn around
Make it up, it’s a buck, that’s how they do it
Don’t make a sound
Escalate, suffocate, they’re gonna do it
Just hit the ground
Given up, had enough, don’t let ‘em do it

(repeat)

Don’t make a sound
