Hear No Evil EP

Watched the news today Another preacher sinned Yet all the while he’s praying for our souls He’ll save us from the fire Do as they say “Protecting us”, betraying trust All lies To help us sleep at night CHORUS: If we hear no evil, we will fear no evil Close our eyes and turn away If we speak no evil, we will seek no evil Banish what we say If we hear no evil, we will fear no evil Close your mind – it goes away If we see no evil, there can be no evil No evil here… Soliders killed today A holy war or something more? Agendas unknown – truth or lie? A world away Neglected cries, a child dies unseen Never reach our TV screens REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT / LT / MARK We look the other way Oblivious in shrouded bliss All doing what we’re told Believing all we see Behind the smiles Pretty lies that open eyes can see Wake up It’s down to you and me REPEAT CHORUS

Staring out beyond the shadows To see a world of faces all the same And find the light behind those darkened eyes And realise the skies are more than grey PRE-CHORUS: Got the hunger but we’re wanting more Forever reaching higher Remember what we’re fighting for The writing on the wall is CHORUS: Set In Stone Set In Stone Ghosts of the past now far behind me Follow the path towards a brighter day Now a fire lights inside those darkened eyes Crucify the lies of yesterday REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x 2 SOLO: LT / LT / MARK / LT / MARK REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x 4 + AD LIBS

Watch another fortune fade away Another dream cast to the wind Chronos waits to seize the day So play his game and play to win CHORUS: Take hold of life – walk through the fire Sometimes it seems like time is slipping away Take hold of life – walk through the fire Don’t waste your life when time is slipping away Like the golden goose that never lays Always waiting for the sign Time to see it’s time to be Release the hero, free to fly REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: MARK / LT / LT+MARK (HARMONY) Search inside to find the truth Circumstance won’t come to you Be the one you want to be Live your life to live your dreams REPEAT CHORUS x2

“Judge me for who I am Don’t like me for what I’m not” In every aspect of my life Talk the talk and take the blame Stand up for what I feel is right And feel no shame I’m a sinner, but I’m a winner Take no shit from anyone Speak my mind and do the time For my views CHORUS: Going down – I stand behind the choices I make Going down – Be they wrong or right Going down – I see fires of hell below me Live and die an honest man So take me away… Every day another test Run the gauntlet, walk the line So live your life to be the best Every time Not a rebel or the devil No false facade, I’m true to me Stand up to the bastards And know I’m free SOLO: LT+MARK / LT REPEAT CHOURS x2

about

Released in November 2008 in Australia by Dominus Records, limited to 500 hand-numbered copies (now out of stock). Available worldwide via paid Digital Download.

This EP contains a previously unreleased track “Hear No Evil”, the song “Set In Stone” from the 2009 album of the same name, two songs recorded live on tour in 2008 and yes, song 3 is a bizarre cover of the Kylie Minogue song “On A Night Like This” that eventually became a bonus track on the “Set In Stone” album … And yes, the band is still laughing at that cover now.
