F.F.S. Get a grip...

F.F.S.
(Get a grip)







V1 
So tell me what is happening.....
When our children have to fight....
Life on Earth hangs in the balance....
The air, the water,
                                 Please tell me this ain't right.....

V2
How could we be so ignorant......
To steal the future from our youth.....?
The oceans are full of plastic now....
The fish, the birds,
                                      Don't you recognise this truth.......?

(let the mood build into the chorus)

Chorus:-
What part of crazy
                                Don't we get....?
How long will we abstain......?
When will passion
                                      To really live..........
Build bridges once again.......?
Can't we put aside the hate......?
And make our children proud.........
Stop destroying the Earth, our home......
And do it very loud...........!

(Mid 8)
Musical lull, overlaid with the noises of destructiveness. 
(Tree felling, bombings, hurricanes etc)

V3
Once upon a time it seems....
We shared natures abundance wide...
Then greed took over, now we're lost....
No insects, no trees
                           As we await the rising tide....

V4
Does it have to be this way......
Where all life on Earth will die.....?
Stop the madness F.F.S........
Live love, live peace.....
                        It's got to be worth a try.......

Chorus:-
What part of crazy
                                Don't we get....?
How long will we abstain......?
When will passion
                                      To really live..........
Build bridges once again.......?
Can't we put aside the hate......?
And make our children proud.........
Stop destroying the Earth, our home......

And do it very loud...........!





The message is clear.

Seeing the Lie



Seeing the Lie.











V1
So you tried to change the course..
Of a history muddled by war........
I believe you wanted peace.........
And a way to level the score........
'Cos you tried....
Yes you tried.....
But your enemies hated more......!

V2
You swore to give your allegiances..
In a bid to live with decency........
But all the time they plotted.........
To shroud every act in secrecy.....
Still you tried....
Yes you tried....
Whilst they plotted schemed and lied......

(Music lifts into)

Chorus:-
Who could know what was coming....?
Or why the rider had stood down.....
A whiff of smoke across the knoll...
As everyone else just hit the ground....
You never stood a fighting chance..
Your smile and been erased......
The Texan skies now witnessed violence..
As the world fell into silence........

(Mid 8)
Doleful dirges...... Beeps.....turning into a flatline sound.....
(His passing)

V3
A simple man became a patsy..
To hide the crimes of their greed.....
Intolerable suffering and a world of cruelty...
Is what their dealings would breed.....
Oh how they lied.....
Yes they lied.......
As is the treachery of their creed....

V4
Why didn't you realise their plan....?
When he forced you into that place....
Did you not feel their wickedness.....?
That he carried hidden from your face....
But you tried......
As they lied.......
And the bullets echoed loud.......

Chorus:-
Who could know what was coming....?
Or why the rider had stood down.....
A whiff of smoke across the knoll...
As everyone else just hit the ground....
You never stood a fighting chance..
Your smile and been erased......
The Texan skies now witnessed violence..
As the world fell into silence........

V5
Hope may have been lost today..
If you'd not shown a better way.....
Their crimes won't go unpunished...
If we look we'll see their lie.....
Yes you tried......
As they lied.......
Tha all might be set free.........!




For the memory of J.F.K.
Slain November 22 1963 in Dallas Texas.
35th President of the U.S.A.

Your kick, my pain


Your kick, my pain…




Finger picking electric guitar, rhythm builds to a sudden crash of drums. (hard rock style intro)then a soft pulse guitar into v1.


V1
It must have been funny…..
Or did you have other agendas to name……?
That constant look of satisfaction…….
A smug pride….in fulfilling your game…..

V2
Had you meant to hurt me…..?
Or had you merely enjoyed the chase…….?
Something beguiling and yet deceitful…..
Was always……present in your face…….


Electric organ medley for 8 bars.
Falling into the chorus



Chorus:-
(In the style of Seahorses- standing on your head)

So tell me darling……
Was this betrayer…..once the betrayed…….?
I thought you believed…… like me…..
We lie in the beds that we’ve made…..
If this were an act of love……
Then why does my heart break……..?
All I can see is hopeless……
You got all your kicks……
And all I got……
                                      Is pain…….n…….n……..n…..!

(Musical rift)

                                      So much pain……..n……n……n….!


 (Mid 8)


V3
How do you sleep soundly………
When your actions tell another story……..?
You pretend that truth is master……..
But lying baby……is where I feel your glory……


Chorus:-

So tell me darling……
Was this betrayer…..once the betrayed…….?
I thought you believed…… like me…..
We lie in the beds that we’ve made…..
If this were an act of love……
Then why does my heart break……..?
All I can see is hopeless……
You got all your kicks……
And all I got……
                                      Is pain…….n…….n……..n…..!

                                      So much pain……..n………n…….n……!
                                      So much bloody pain……..n……..n……..n……..!

(continue power and thrust of guitars, begin fade out after 8 bars)

Enough !


Enough.!




(Begins with a drum medley/cymbals tapping.. Guitar buidls strength over a rousing noise to lift the melody quickly to a frim pulsing beat…. Then explosion…..)
(16 bars)

(softer pulse)

V1
So who really knows……..
Just where the wind……where the wind will blow……?
Life has a way of fooling……
With the things we ought to know……..


V2
Take me to adventures………
Where we’ll dance……..dance upon the sands……..
Save me from my doubts….
Always safe within your hands……


Chorus:-
And in me now……..
The powers rising……..up……
A chance to escape…..
All the doubt….inside my mind…..
Breathe and fill my heart….
For love is everywhere…….
I ……… am…….. enough…..
Yeah…. Enough…… with some to spare…..


(symphony comes in to wash over the listener and create ethereal grace)

(Mid 8)


(softer pulse)
V3
Time is a healer……..
There’s a place…….. place to walk in the sun……
Away from the past…….
Keep me safe within the light……

V4
Let go of the feeling…….
I have learned……… learned to live again……..
Building love is appealing…….
I’m a king…. I think you’ll find……



Chorus:-
And in me now……..
The powers rising……..up……
A chance to escape…..
All the doubt….inside my mind…..
Breathe and fill my heart….
For love is everywhere…….
I ……… am…….. enough…..
Yeah…. Enough…… with some to spare…..


(Then a slowing pulse… rhythm cools and into)
(Spoken)

The world would have you believe, that you are not enough.
You are! You are! You are!
They make you fear living, to take away your power.
Please believe in yourselves.
You are enough and always are!!!!

(fade music)

Where is Love?


Where is LOVE ?



(Tambourine ringing, soft drums build into keyboard, gradually building rhythm to V1)
(16 bar)

V1
Some days all we have is fear…
The world we knew is dying…….
A chance to live, no longer clear…
Those in power….. just won’t stop their lying…..

V2
What’s gone wrong with humans being?
Why is lasting peace so hard to find……?
When will it be love we’re seeing……?
Instead of wars…… that hurt mankind………


(Tempo builds and percussion demands a pulse of love like a wave.)

Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!

(Mid 8)

V3
The choice we make…..really ours….
Take power into our own hands……
Don’t give in to the oppression……
Do the work…… that love demands…….

V4
Fill our world with sounds of laughter….
Be the change you wish to see……..
Don’t let hatred keep oppressing……
Keep giving love…….and be set free……


Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!
Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!


*Then:-*

LOVE is stronger…….
LOVE is fairer…………
LOVE is how we’re meant to be…..
LOVE is brighter……
LOVE is grander……
BE the LOVE you wish to see………..

Outshone the Sun

       Outshone the Sun



Music follows the sound of a cock crowing in the foreground. Then a regular rhythmical drum beat, shortish strums on the guitar building over 16 bars into verse 1.

V1
Oh yeah today……….. I learned a secret……..
Heaven……….lost an angel…….
Before the sun……….shone in the sky………
An image………..of such perfection……….
For her light……..just made me cry…….
Oh la la la la la la la….
For her light……..just made me cry…….

V2
So now……….. I want to touch her……..
To let………this feeling conquer………
Not let it………. Walk on bye………
I’m believing……… on a daydream……
I’ve gotta hope…….. I’ve gotta try………
Oh la la la la la la la….
Gotta hope……… just gotta try……

Chorus:
Oh I….I……I…..I didn’t know desire………
Before I’d looked into her eyes…….
I hadn’t lived at all……..
Until this feeling took control……
The power of her smile……
Brought love into my heart……..
I’m lost and blind I surrender……
……  ‘cos she outshone….the sun……..

(Build to a crescendo at the end of chorus, then returns to a regular rhythm…)

V3
I am humbled……. Now I hold her…….
Hotter……… than any desert…..
For I melt……….  beneath such grace……..
She………… just can’t be mortal………
Or……… I’d have seen it in her face……….
Oh la la la la la la la…
I’d have seen……… it in her face…….

(Mid 8)
Guitars create a dreamscape, wistful…meandering and soulful…..

V4
A breath…….. I fail to surrender………
My emotions……… running wild blue yonder………
Her beauty……… brought me to my knees………….
For she’s……… the one I worship……….
And her name……….. carried on the breeze…….
Oh la la la la la la la….
Her name………. was carried on the breeze………

Chorus:
Oh I….I……I…..I didn’t know desire………
Before I’d looked into her eyes…….
I hadn’t lived at all……..
Until this feeling took control……
The power of her smile……
Brought love into my heart……..
I’m lost and blind I surrender……
……  ‘cos she outshone….the sun……..

Yes she still outshines the sun……………..
(Fade)
