Track Name: As We Are
Feed the swine.
The country I come from doesn't understand the call.
Punish the poor.
You're gonna have to take us as we are.

We could break down your castle walls,
We all need someone to blame.
You're gonna have to take us as we are,
How can we forgive what you do in our name?

Together we're strong,
If you can take us as we are.
You say that war is necessary.
Can you sell it to a country with no interest in war?

We could break down your castle walls,
We all need someone to blame.
You're gonna have to take us as we are,
How can we forgive what you do in our name?
Track Name: Dai Young
Come on, Dai Young,
I know you've fallen from the highest of rungs,
But all your stories and the songs that you've sung,
They're what I lived for so come on Dai Young.

Dai Young you led your own country band,
Took to the stage to Lee Hazelwood's "Sand".
Every night the crowd would be eating from your hand.
I used to love that band.

Dai Young, in the afternoon,
I heard you whistle a White Buffalo tune.
I looked your way but you stared right through,
So what else is new?

Dai Young in chains.
Captive to poison that runs in your veins.
Too strong to be stopped, and too weak to change.
But you'll need to change.

Come on, come on
Come on Dai Young.
Track Name: Confederate Son
Raise up a glass now my confederate son,
Drink with me now the battle is won.
Leave far behind you all the words that were thrown,
By the ones that you left in your home town.

Come with me now and let go of your hate,
It can't wait wait 'till tomorrow, tomorrow's too late.

Standing there paralysed, a slave to your fears,
Longing to touch her, trying not to stare.
Focusing blindly on one perfect night,
You know you could have it if you weren't so uptight.

Come with me now and let go of your hate,
It can't wait wait 'till tomorrow, tomorrow's too late.
Track Name: Husband
You stood firm beside me as I fell apart,
Now I know this barroom better than my own heart.
Don't know what's right any more, but I know I've done wrong.
You were my compass, I've been tethered to you for so long.

Seems a hundred years ago since you said you'd be my bride,
And ever since I've filled you with pain that you kept bottled up inside.
As the years passed you gave me children, I gave you grief each day.
How it kills me to see how you've blossomed since I sent you away.

I've not been much of a father,
I've not been much of a son,
I know you used to have a husband,
But I don't know where he's gone.
Track Name: Besom
You never know which way her mood will take her, but it'll take you down,
And all the stupid little things she makes you do make you feel like a clown.

That,
That woman,
That woman is a right besom.
That woman is a right besom.

If any other woman tried to play these games you'd tell her where to go,
But as for my girl when she turns on all her charms you find you can't say no.
She'll spend your money and she'll spend your patience following the trends,
And just when you think you've got her attention, she's got her eye on your friends.

That,
That woman,
That woman is a right besom.
That woman is a right besom.
Track Name: Beaten
Beaten by luck, beaten by time,
Beaten by yours, beaten by mine,
Beaten by old, beaten by new.
Beaten by poverty, beaten by crime,
Beaten by judgement, beaten by design,
Well beaten down but I know I'll come through
Because you know I'll never be beaten by you.

Beaten in public, beaten inside,
Beaten my confidence, beaten my pride,
Beaten by friends, I thought that I knew.
Beaten my body, beaten my mind,
Beaten me senseless, beaten me blind,
Beaten by common sense it's true,
You know I'll never be beaten by you.

Beaten by deception, beaten by deceit,
Beaten from my head right down to my feet,
Beaten and abandoned, and left without a clue.
Beaten by heartache, beaten by pain,
Sun beatin' on me or beaten by rain,
If you say that I'm beaten, well here is some news,
You should know I'll never be beaten by you.
