Track Name: Know What I Know
Sung by Peter Fox

You might say I'm lazy
Might say I'm extreme
Music makes me crazy
Music is a dream

Something in me was set aflame
The lights, the crowd shouting a name
So who can blame us if we want
To taste the fame
Our own true aim

You'll know what I know
You’ll see what I’ve seen
They lied to me on the BBC
You'll know what I know
You’ll see what I’ve seen
What I did see is that it went into freefall (WTC-7)
How could have they known
It went into freefall
and things don’t happen like that

You don't have to be blind
And nothing's what it seems
Shake off all the ties that bind
Skim off all the cream

Something in me I don't know why
But I can't live unless I try
To reach the high just one time
Before I die
I'm going to fly

You'll know what I know
You’ll see what I’ve seen
They lied to me on the BBC
You'll know what I know
You’ll see what I’ve seen
What I did see is that it went into freefall (WTC-7)
How could have they known
It went into freefall
and things don’t happen like that
Track Name: Rotten From Within
ROTTEN FROM WITHIN

Sung by Humpy Dampster

I am a shade
Caught in between
I feel hunger
I feel mean

I love the fear
Hate all I see
Like you I'm
Wrapped in misery

And do you know my name
And do you know my game
I can tell you where you've been
And I am rotten from within

I am control
That you don't see
I like that you
Don't believe in me

You are my slave
And so I feed
You're trapped by
Everything you need

And do you know my name
And do you know my game
I can tell you where you've been
And I am rotten from within
Track Name: Ordinary Man
Sung by Peter Fox

He’s an ordinary man
With an ordinary life
An ordinary job
And an ordinary wife

He has a pair of children
Who just don’t seem to care
The wife will let him once a week
But she’s not really there

And I wonder
And I ponder
Can you tell me where this ordinary man is going to?

He’s an ordinary man
Who want’s to get ahead
He never stops to think
Some day he will be dead

He doesn’t understand
Why things don’t work out like he planned
Every day is the same now
It’s more than he can stand

And I wonder
And I ponder
Can you tell me where this ordinary man is going to?

He’s an ordinary man
Drives an ordinary car
Week nights by the TV
Weekends at the bar

It’s all the same old story
And I’ve seen it all before
I won’t bother to open
When he’s knocking on my door

And I wonder
And I ponder
Can you tell me where this ordinary man is going to?
Track Name: Like a Rose part 1
Sung by Peter Fox


I wish that I could die
Wish that I could cry
When I see what they've done
At the point of a gun

It makes me wonder why
They all believe the lie
That we are not the same
It's a sad and tragic game

Life is beautiful
If we could let it be
Life is everywhere
If we could only see
What do I do
How can I Just stand by
And look her in the eye
If we could love
We could rise above

She is like a rose, a dove
She touched me she touched love
With great power to change
My heart feels so strange

Something has come over me
Things that are should never be
The light that I see
Shows the way and speaks to me

I was up in the box
The song that you played
Man it really rocks
S- So come to the Plant
Let's go to C-D

D- says you gotta give me some
S- Points and my name
J- I want my shot at fame
My shot at fame
My shot at fame
My shot at fame

Track Name: Have you heard the News
Sung by Trevor, Paul, & Jamie

T- Have you heard the news
J- You hear what they say
T- The songs have hit
J- And we've hit payday
T- Have you heard the news
J- Have you seen the page
T- We're all the rage
J- When we take the stage

T- Think I'll but a new guitar
Maybe get a brand new car
J- A party where we all get stoned
P- A supermodel off my own
Maybe we should change our muse
Take the time to pick and choose
J- Music that could redefine
The conscious state of human kind
T- Nothing really so grandeur
Let's have fun and nothing more
P- We've got the cash
We've got a name
So on our own
Let's do it again

T- Have you heard the news
J- You hear what they say
T- The songs have hit
J- And we've hit payday
T- Have you heard the news
J- Have you seen the page
T- We're all the rage
J- When we take the stage

P- What will be is what I see
Nothing really changes me
Now I see an open door
Maybe there's still something more
Track Name: Like a Rose part 2
Sung by Peter Fox

I wish that I could die
Wish that I could cry
When I see what's been done
To you

Life is fragile Don't hesitate
Life is fleeting It won't wait
What do I do How can I
Just stand by How can I let
Her dream die

(A fuzzy radio voice reads a news release of the death of Princess Diana
in the tragic car crash)

I'll make the whole world see
The things that should not be
The things that are not right
Must be brought to light

And bring down the dogs
Who drink from pools of blood
Of children who have died
They lay death in the ground
Where later it's found
And bodies rip apart
With an awful sound
They profit while they scheme
Divide the human beings
How can I believe
It's hard very hard
For me to believe
That people could do that
Who would do that ?
Who would do that ?
Track Name: Rapatative 2
RAPATATIVE #2

D- So the odds he'll defy
He's got that look in his eye
Now he'll carry the torch
With fire to scorch
The villains who make
The mines that create
The death and despair
Of course they don't care
S- Paul's got all the green
More than he's ever seen
At any one time
It feels so sublime
But Peter being given
As dreamers are driven
To mad things delight
He's picked a hard fight
J- So he calls up his brother
Hey let's get these mother
Fucker's that trade
On death that they made
Planned long ago
These things that I know
Now here's the deal
It's time that we heal
The land where we live
I want to give
Ass kicks to these guys
Maybe poke out there eyes
Will you help me out
Now don't make me shout
We'll use you're expertise
To burn the coorporate sleaze
D- David says it sounds rash
But hey you got the cash
I'll take on your case
Your heart's in the right place
So all the suits soon where filed
Just like girls gone wild
S- And the spotlight fell
From heaven to hell
Which made the ground swell
You never can tell
Which one's gonna hit
Which one's full of shit
Which way the wind blows
Who knows where it goes
Track Name: High Profile
Sung by David Gerschvwitzsteinman

Have you heard the news
Have you seen the page
Obviously not
Let me set the stage

We got the ISF
And the ICC
AI, Di's estate
Just wait and see

I really can't believe
The attention you receive
It's gonna hit the fan I swear

Cause it's high profile
High profile for you
It's high profile
High profile for you

The media has noticed
They've joined in the fray
And rumours in DC
Are starting to say

It's high profile
High profile for youThe council of 13 will
It's high profile
High profile for you

It may not be total
But one thing is clear
Changes will be coming
From all that I hear

I really can't believe
The attention you receive
It's gonna hit the fan I swear

Cause it's high profile
High profile for you
It's high profile
High profile for you
Cause it's high profile
High profile for you
It's high profile
