All the way home – By Martin Fagan You were always there, by my side No words to say – no need I am there at the floodgate Hold back the tide But don’t want to meet you there If you tell me you’re ok I can turn and go Things left unsaid, but we know what it all means All the way home All the way home I’m with you every step of the way Such a sad celebration, but we have gone as far as we can We’ve done our best - it’s time to fly Were at a junction – not a full stop It’s time to take it and fly .... All the way home All the way home, I will see you fly all the way home. Break: Find a way and take it Sure step your way and make it All the way home ..... I will see you fly ... All the way home All the way home

A dream beyond the ghetto – M - Fagan No flag around my body swathed My overcoat the old sky blue No longer in the bunker bathed History’s season comes anew No soothing sea, how lonely I feel As seagulls screech under city suns Chorus A dream beyond the ghetto, the reality bites for all to see A dream beyond the ghetto, always just out of reach Out of reach … a dream ………… I think, love, feel, and cry Please don’t doubt my thirst Inhaling brutality’s high, inhaling brutality’s high One god I am told, one spirit, God’s children smile with guns Chorus A dream beyond the ghetto, the reality bites for all to see A dream beyond the ghetto, always just out of reach Out of reach … a dream …………………..

River of Anger – Martin Fagan Our tears have flowed for so long In a river of anger they now belong Dry eyed and ready, I have been thinking , Feeling and wondering why ...... I feel this way ....... Chorus There is a river of anger come pouring over you A refuge of despair coming into view A simple lie beats a complex truth Only one winner and it is not you Shadowed sunbeams they circle my soul I can’t explain how I feel But your blood is my blood, your pain is my pain Chorus There is a river of anger come pouring over you A refuge of despair coming into view The river of anger flows into a sea of hate Open your heart before it is too late

Thanks for listening Hit a brick wall and I’m sliding back I can’t operate in the machine Shoulders to the grind they are worn away Life can be a strange affair Thanks for listening it means a lot Everything is still and grey Thanks for listening you helped me see Things that seemed far now up close Demons on every corner I can’t keep at bay No easy answers – but thanks for listening Makes it seem worthwhile Thanks for listening it means a lot Everything is still and grey Thanks for listening you helped me see I can make believe and escape for a time Capture the moment and then I’m on my way I need to be in possession of myself ….. Thanks for Listening ........ END

Beautiful Heart Beautiful Heart, glow in the sun See the best in everything Around you Fragile as glass you can see through I don’t have to ask you just know Oh how I love to be with you – Repeat Beautiful heart Eclipse the sun Fill the room How I love your beautiful heart Oh Beautiful Heart Fragile as glass you can see through I don’t have to ask you just know Fragile as glass .... Oh how I love to be with you – Repeat

The last time I saw you – Martin Fagan I remember well the first time I saw you Sunny days, absolute freedom. Don’t go, but I won’t stand, can’t stand in your way The wheels are turning, and you’re deserving, Just go CHORUS You were always too amazing for this place….. The last time I saw you, I bit my tongue, you did the same Sometimes it has to be this way I can’t hang around to say goodbye So long, too long, goodnight, goodbye I aint gonna twist the knife You’ve got a life, I’ve got a life I have to let you go CHORUS You were always too amazing for this place The last time I saw you, I bit my tongue, you did the same Sometimes it has to be this way I can’t hang around to say goodbye

Put the guns away – By Martin Fagan Are you crazy, are you mad A picture house, a church, a school, Nowhere is safe Not even the wildest west was this cruel Nowhere is safe .... Chorus Oh put the guns away Its insanity – No more guns Oh put the guns away Its insanity – No more guns Not even the wildest west was this cruel Land of the free, free to die, more like If this is freedom we need some restraint Don’t put the weapons in the hater’s hands You must see it is time for change Chorus Oh put the guns away Its insanity – No more guns Oh put the guns away Its insanity – No more guns It’s time to give optimism a chance Mutual respect and trust is the key Oh please put the guns away

2100 - by Martin Fagan 2100 I hope you’ve had a good life The end of another century I hope that we have conquered space And the world is still turning Down our lovely dead end street What will we have in 2100 What will be left of this fragile earth Individuality, choice, don’t matter If the earth is dying as a matter of fact Will the leaves hang from the trees Children play in the street It feels like it should last forever But we are the problem…. What will we have in 2100 What will be left of this fragile earth Individuality, choice, don’t matter If the earth is dying as a matter of fact You know we should go on and on and on ….. 5 degrees warmer and the water is rising It makes me angry, it makes me sad, But I will always have you …. What will we have in 2100 What will be left of this fragile earth Individuality, choice, don’t matter If the earth is dying as a matter of fact I feel the breeze on the trees And see the waves on the shore 2100 it is going to be ok We will strike gold and find a way We will strike gold and find a way What will we have in 2100 etc ….

Betamax versus VHS An epic battle of the 80’s In the video age Madonna and Duran New possibilities with the Walkman Where is the collective ideal? Capitalise, marginalise That’s the free market it comes at a price Consumerism, I need it, I need it I got to have it …….. Power has passed over Betamax v VHS - survival of the fittest- The best doesn’t always win through Remember when we thought of more than ourselves The individual is king Now individual is king END

Steps to nowhere – By Martin Fagan Where have all the people gone Why am I chasing shadows You left for a better future never to return, never to return You have left me chasing shadows Revisiting the places we used to go The heart has gone from this place All that’s left are steps to nowhere Chorus It is never too late I hear you say Never too late for a second chance But I can’t take the first step And now you are gone …. Gone…. Verse I feel like I’m climbing steps to nowhere, To nowhere at all Wandering around on auto pilot Shadows, ghosts around every corner I need a kick start to check I’m here at all It is never too late I hear you say Never too late for a second chance But I can’t take the first step And now you are gone …. Gone…. You don’t have to fall a long way before you hit the ground I guess you either bounce back or trail away, trail away It is never too late I hear you say Never too late for a second chance But I can’t take the first step And now you are gone …. Gone…. END
