   UNFORGIVEN WAVES
Verse: 1
May you wonder far, may you wonder free, from the fiery shackles, that unjustly chained you, may you sit on the beach, watching unforgiven waves, brake against the rocks.

chorus: 1
May you tread water, till your feet hits the beach, and may you forever reach, to feel your feet, on beloved sands.

Verse: 2
I pray you can stay afloat, in this injustice sea, that has cruelly swept you in, I pray the lifeboats come for you fast, and that the crewman aboard, take hold of your hand, may you weather all storms, through time and tide.

Chorus: 2
May you tread water, till your feet hits the beach, and may you forever reach, to feel your feet, on beloved sands.

verse: 3
There are rapscallions that know, you knew not what you had done, they know, that you knew not what your crime, so let requests be made across the sea, for free winds to blow you home.

Bridge:
May a light house, always keep its searchlight on you, may a life jacket, always be thrown in your reach, may the rage of the ocean, inside you, forever stay calm. May all the false captains go down with their ships, as you sit on the beach, watching unforgiven waves, brake against the rocks.

Chorus: 3
May you tread water, till you feet hits the beach, and may you forever reach, to feel your feet, on beloved sands.

Tag: X 3
As you sit on a beach, watching the unforgiven waves, brake against the rocks.
As you sit on a beach, watching the unforgiven waves, brake against the rocks.
As you sit on a beach, Watching the unforgiven waves, brake against the rocks.






CLEMENCY MOUNTAIN

This song perfectly captures the endless wait for mercy and clemency, as the politicians pay lip service, and continue to evade the cruelty and torment their inaction causes. Video by Marie.

CLEMENCY MOUNTAIN



   CLEMENCY MOUNTAIN

Handful of humanitarian seeds are thrown,
But to date no homeland trees have grown,
Up there! Somewhere! On clemency mountain,
A place where the sick and ill who are detained walk in pain, bare footed over broken glass, scattered across, process paths
A place where pleas for mercy to live again, get stabbed in the back by propaganda knives,
Up there! somewhere! on clemency mountain.


Policy birds are in the mountains,
singing way up high,sing-ing to the troubled, their sweet lulla-bies,
But are their promises truthful?, or are they just a lie?,
can't they see! that time rolls on bye?.


I know a someone who walks in a clemency mountain storm
They keep walking in the clemency rain, waiting for the humanitarian representations to come along
I pray for the day they place their meaningful words from off their tongue
Somewhere on the greener sides of clemency mountain.


Foreign lands, or so they say, are to blame, for chopping of the helping submission branches,from our home land trees
While the need to throw more humanitarian compassionate seed is far to all foreseeable
While the inactive sower of seeds lays asleep, with the humanitarian seed spreader wheeled away where it can't be seen
It's been hidden up there! Somewhere! On clemency mountain.


Free Pelle, Free Free Pelle, Freeeeeeee Pelle, Free Pelle, Free Free Pelle, Freeeeeeee Pelle.





FORK TONGUES & TOOTHLESS DOGS

This incredibly powerful song confronts the fork tongues in the government and in their ombudsman's office with the greatest weapon of all: truth.

   FORK TONGUES & TOOTHLESS DOGS
Verse 1
Fork tongues and twisters speaking false words of manipulation to carve out someone else's future. I've seen fork tongues walking on clouds of smog. I heard fork tongues whistling smoky tunes to martyrs, as dreams of hope and faith shattered across the universe time and space. I longed to see the day the smirk wiped off the fork tongues faces.

Chorus 1
Some called them watch dogs, Ha!!! I called them toothless dogs of shame. Yes!!! they're all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.

Verse 2
I seen fork tongues holding up their fists of false grips, while they deliberately allowed issues and concerns to slip through their fingers.

Chorus 2
Some called them watch dogs, Ha!!! I called them toothless dogs of shame. Yes!!! they're all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.

verse 3
I seen the fork tongues, they were the ones who kept the fires burning. Never acknowledging them that they where hurting. They were all blinded by dollar notes, agendas in their eyes. And I hope that one day they look into the mirror and they are haunted by all the people left to rot in shackles and chains.

Chorus 3
Some called them watch dogs, Ha!!! I called them toothless dogs of shame. Yes!!! they're all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.

Verse 4
Oh it's a slithery world, feeding off a deceit. As the fork tongue shepherds overlook masses of sheep. Like listening to a stone's heart beat, if you look into the eyes of the fork tongues, you wont get any response.

Tag 1
Some called them watch dogs, Ha!!! I called them toothless dogs of shame. Yes!!! they're all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.

Tag 2 x 3
Yes!!! their all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.
Yes!!! their all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.
yes!!! their all fork tongues, they're all useless toothless dogs of shame.






DESTINATION PARADISE

This is a remarkable third eye observation of the shocking complicity from Australia surrounding the case. It passionately confronts the media, the AFP, and the government, all of whom sold Schapelle short for self interest. It even reminds them of their track record for similar duplicity.

DESTINATION PARADISE


   DESTINATION PARADISE
High up officials, detectives of the force, knew earlier on while a girl was going to court,
About a corrupt drug smuggling ring with in the airport, on the same day, as she flew overseas,
But these so called honourable men just let the evidence blow, in the breeze.

Now this girl writes her book, telling about her injustice case, she is clinging to her innocence full of hope and faith,
But our government turns to deaf ears, saying "Oh! It's just a proceed of crime",
Well I say what kind of injustice have we got going on here, do they think we are blind?
Do they think we can not see the dirt on their hands?
Or do they think they have the right to play with strings like puppeteers?

There is an Aussie girl doing time, in a land where are bombers believe they are martyrs of crimes,
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.

If this girl was guilty she would deserve to fall, but her prosecution case appears full of flaws,
Nothing conclusively justifies closing iron doors,
While powerful men in well dressed suits stuffed around playing the goose,
Foreign hierarchy were considering given her the noose,
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.

There is an Aussie girl doing time, in a land where are bombers believe they are martyrs of crimes,
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.

TV, newspapers, and the magazines played their higher volume sales games,
Why they ought not to be ashamed for wrongfully running down their nation's own,
Why they be so prejudice to the chance of a girl coming home?
But then again, for twisting the truth the media is well known
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.

There is an Aussie girl doing time, in a land where are bombers believe they are martyrs of crimes,
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.

If you're the kind that feels unsure, why not sit alone and let the dingo call, your memories of an injustice case from years before

Injustice takes away destination paradise.

There is an Aussie girl doing time, in a land where are bombers believe they are martyrs of crimes,
Injustice takes away Destination Paradise.





WHEN YOU TRIED TO TELL THE WORLD

This beautiful song is so cleverly presented, and one can only imagine the time spent at the typewriter actually writing this classic.
