Track Name: Doesn't Have to Be This Way
I see the children across the sea
Left on the shore like trash and debris
I hear a nation sigh relieved
But it doesn’t have to be
Doesn’t have to be this way

Shattering windows
Flashing lights
Bullets tear the dark skin of night
The sound of mothers swearing at the skies

It doesn’t have to be
Doesn’t have to be this way
Doesn’t to have to be
It doesn’t to have be this way

Oh you…
A little lower
A little lower than the angels
There’s a little piece of heaven in you
Oh you…
The power you've been given
Is the power you should live in
The world is the shape that we choose

I hear the beast delcare his lies
See all people with flags held high
I see the world descend in fire

But it doesn’t have to be
Doesn’t have to be this way
It doesn’t have to be
Doesn’t have to be this way
It doesn’t have to be
Doesn’t have to be this way
Track Name: Supa Dred II (Wake Up)
We not livin' in your fantasy
Your Daffy Duck and your Bugs Bunny
Wearin' clothes that we cannot see
You never gonna put your mark me

Call down fire from the sky
You want for us to think you reign on high
Abusive power from a fallen star
We know exactly who you are

Wake up

We are not fooled
We're not impressed
We're not distracted by no emptiness
We won't be worshipping your wickedness
We won't be marching with the living dead

are you not blind?
are you not deaf?
The prophet told you but took his head
Tried to warn you but can't accept
Your world is gonna' die a painful death

Wake up

You gonna' wash to the sea one day
One day your tower gonna' fall
You gonna' crawl on your knees someday
You gonna' eat the lawn, Babylon!

Wake up
