READ ABOUT IT

W - Hirst/Moginie/Garrett
The rich get richer
The poor get the picture
The bombs never hit you when you're down so low

Some got pollution
Some revolution
There must be some solution but I just don't know

The bosses want decisions
The workers need ambitions
There won't be no collisions whey they move so slow

Nothing ever happens
Nothing ever matters
No one ever tells me so what am I to know

You wouldn't read about it
Read about it
Just another incredible scene
There's no doubt about it

Hammer and sickle
The news is at a trickle
The commisars are fickle but the stockpile grows

Bombers keeping coming
Engines softly humming
The stars and stripes are running for their own big show

Another little flare up
Storm brewed in a tea cup
Imagine any mix up and the lot would go

Nothing ever happens
Nothing ever matters
No one ever tells me so what I am to know

You wouldn't read about it
Read about it
One unjust, ridiculous steal
Ain't no doubt about it
You wouldn't read about it
Read about it
Just another particular deal
There's no doubt about it

RENAISSANCE MAN

W - Moginie/Garrett/Rotsey
Well I told you about the forest and trees and the chlorophyll
green
Yes I told you the birds will endure flutter wings dance on leaves

Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams tonight

Well I told you about the high pressure cell coming down on the
breeze
And I know that the things you can't see they are hard to believe

Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams tonight

A new world order has been formed
Between the cheque book and the dawn
A new renaissance man is born

Renaissance man are you ready
Renaissance man
Renaissance man are you ready
See what a world that you can make

Well I heard about the spirit of life is it flickering still
Yes I heard that the dark bellied angel's come running up the hill

Hold onto dreans, hold onto dreams tonight

Smash and grab the women and child all the souls are growing
Wild stripped so bare well the universe stares it's so close to
home
That we got to share with you so many genuine things surround
You wild weather man well it still confounds you cast away the
Greed and death machine and bytes and abacus and lights
And hold onto your dreams tonight

So you found a hard won friend
To hold your hand and hold your head
A new renaissance to defend

Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams tonight

Where are we going to be in 3033 what's spinning round your brain

Are you a renaissance man or are you a renaissance woman
If you jump out an angel will give you wings

RIVER RUNS RED

W - Hirst/Moginie
So you cut all the tall trees down
You poisoned the sky and the sea
You've taken what's good from the ground
But you left precious little for me

You remember the flood and the fall
We remember the light on the hill
There should be enough for us all
But the dollar is driving us still

River runs red
Black rain falls
Dust in my hand

River runs red
Black rain falls
On my bleeding land

So we came and conquered and found
Richers of commons and kings
Who strangled and wrestled the ground
But they never put back anything

Now I'm trapped like a dog in a cage
Wherever the truth is pursued
It must be the curse of the age
What's taken is never renewed

River runs red...

RUN BY NIGHT

W - Moginie/Hirst/Rotsey
I'm on the whisky flying And I'll run by night
I'm on the whisky runnin' And I'll run by night
I'm on the winter cycle Shut my eyes to the bite
I'm on the winter cycle Shake my fist to the bite

I'm on the whisky flying And I'll run by night
I'm on the phone to summer So I'll see you on the flight
My friends are at the party Playing games with the light
I hate to say I'm wrong Ijust know I'm right

We all run by night

I'm on the whisky flying And I'll run by night
I'm on the glaze a burning And it burns in the light
I'm on a turning circle Turn my face from the bite
I'm on a turning circle Hear me screaming at the bite

I'm on the edge of danger And I'll run by night
I'm on the phone to summer So I'll see you on the flight
My friends are at the party Playing games with the light
I hate to say I'm wrong I just know I'm right

We all run by night
