1. Careful Where You Step

Can you see the day,
When everyone can say they've got one?
A cloud is moving in, blotting out your landmine vision
So many are afraid, concealing all their secret weapons
You can see it in their eyes,
Like the brake lights on a highway glisten
Three billion is a lot, it's impossible to separate them
A career is made and lost, in sorting out the devastation
What you get you've got, the rest can be imagination
And what you lose you've lost,
Here comes the instant separation
Careful where you step
There may be a mine under there

2. Don't Be Late (Chapter 2)

Look at him running there's so far to go,
He's very short of breath
And he'd said don't be late
Just don't be late
With his parcel tucked tight under his arm
He's sure he's passed half way
And he'd said don't be late
Just don't be late.

DID YOU DO EVERYTHING YOU'RE TOLD
THE INSTRUCTION YOU HAD WAS OLD

I wasn't sure if I'd hear you
I'm glad you're still alright

IT'S ALL BEEN ARRANGED FOR TEN
THE STREETS SHOULD BE CLEAR BY THEN

I've done all that you told me
I'm sure that they will wait

THEIR TIMING WAS MADE QUITE CLEAR
IF WE'RE LATE THEY WILL NOT APPEAR

They don't know, they don't know
They don't know how far we've had to go

CAN YOU PICK UP THIS SLOWING PACE
YOU'RE RUNNING A LOSING RACE

No! Soon we'll see them
Then you'll know
That I have not delayed, he said

Chorus

Hurry and don't be late
You'd better hurry you might be late
Just hurry and don't be late
You'd better hurry you may be late

IF WE'RE LATE I WILL NOT SURVIVE
THEY WILL KEEP ME ALIVE

It's not too far now
And I can only wish you luck friend
I'M SORRY I GO ALONE
THIS METAL IS A COLD HOME
I can see they're waiting
A few more steps and you'll be there, he said

Chorus

Just hurry and don't be late
You'd better hurry you may be late

3. Humble Stance

Lately I've been watching a little complex grow
You know, you gotta know
That's why I chose to tell 'ya
That humble stance and timid glance
Makes your world turn so slow
You know, you gotta know
There's no one going to help you
Watching you, that shyness too, with everyone you know
You know, you gotta know
That's how they step around you
It takes you twice the time to find the things you're looking for
You know, you're moving slow
No one will stop to tell you
You can light up anyone you please
You should spend less time down on your knees
Lately I've been watching a little complex grow
You know, you gotta know
That's why I chose to tell 'ya
That humble stance and timid glance
Makes your world turn so slow
You know, you gotta know
There's no one going to help you (x5)
Lately I've been watching a little complex grow
You know, you gotta know
That's why I chose to tell 'ya
That humble stance and timid glance
Makes your world turn so slow
You know, you gotta know
There's no one going to help you

4. Wind Him Up

Aldo's standing at his table
And he's wondering if he's able
To pick the number right this time
He watches as the wheel stops spinning
Sees the number that is winning
As he reaches for his glass of wine
Once he starts it's hard to stop
He's keepin'up a pace like a tight wound clock
Be sure you don't step in his way
He'll keep those numbers rolling
This may be his last day.
As all the bets are taken
Aldo lights a smoke, he's shakin'
From carnation right to the ground
He knows tonight holds one last chance
'n gives the wheel a final glance
Slippery fingers drop the money down
Once he starts it's hard to stop
He's keepin'up a pace like a tight wound clock
And as he leaves the table, [ No luck today ]
You can rest assured
He's comin' back to try again
Wind him up, he can't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand down
Wind him up, he won't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he won't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand.

5. How Long?

You thought you had it in the bag
Thought you had it all figured out
But now you're having second thoughts
You don't really know your ins from outs
You won't accept the lot you've drawn
You can't face the error of your ways
You turned your back and walked away
Seem bent on finding better days
How long did your dream carry on
How long did your dream spin around
You'd better grab your things and run
All your friends have left you behind
I have no answers for you now
I just wish you had an open mind
How long did your dream carry on
How long did your dream spin around
How long did your dream carry on
How long did your dream spin around

6. No Regrets (Chapter 5)

Far down below
He could see the scars
Left from the night before
Shadows of strength
That once stood firmly
Now laying in waste everywhere
An echo of planned
Resistant pounding
Still hanging thick in the air
A sudden arrival
No sound of warning
No time, no time
To prepare
As the clouds
Continued to open
Each vision was hard to believe
A horizon
Minimal motion
As far as the eye could see
His yesterday held
So much promise
His today only misbelief
And now the task of reconstruction
Salvaging all they could see
Can you say there's no regrets?

7. A Brief Case

(Solo)

8. You're Not Alone

There was a man who thought
He could avoid all of the things
That stood up in his way
Friends would say that he should
Plan to spend more time
There's lots of trouble in a day
With just enough work
And a short line to a goal
He was so sure he could secure his place
He wanted a lot and was so
Quick to say how this small
World was unfair to its race
He'd spend his time, spends his time
Deciding routes with lines, routes with lines
There was no time, was no time
For corners in the lines, corners in lines
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Not listening to the people we were close
There always seemed to be an easy way
The work was tiresome, a thing to avoid
Leaving lots of time so he could play
He'd spend his time, spend his time
Shortening lines, shortening lines
There was no time, there was no time
To spend too long on the line, long on the line
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone

9. On The Loose

One day you feel quite stable
The next you're comin' off the wall
But I think that you should warn me
If you start heading for a fall
I see the problem start
I watch the tension grow
I see you keeping it to yourself
And then instead of reaching conclusions
I see you reaching for something else
No one can stop you now
Tonight you're on the loose
No one to tell you how
Tonight you're on the loose
I see no harm or danger in escaping
If the method suits the style
We put the mind on idle
And let the others take it for awhile
When the pace is too fast
And I think I won't last
You know where I'll be found
I'll be standing here beside myself
Getting ready for the final round
No one can stop me now
Tonight I'm on the loose
No one to tell me how
Tonight I'm on the loose
The time we feel most stable
Is the time we're comin' off the wall
And there's every indication
We may be heading for a fall
So let the problems start
And let the tension grow
We'll be keeping it to ourselves
And while they're busy reaching their conclusions
We'll be reaching for something else
No one can stop us now
Tonight we're on the loose
No one to tell us how
Tonight we're on the loose
