Track Name: 1a/ Nothing For Tomorrow (McKella) - Live at Blind Cat Festival 2016
Nothing For Tomorrow

I see man-made clouds – forming in the sky
I see a plane fly thru those clouds & fly on by
Poison ivy poison trees – acid rain & dying seas
Polar ice-caps melt into those seas

TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW
TAKE IT ALL -
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW

I see images - of South America
big corporations move in from afar
And when the forests are stripped bare – another space created there
Fabrics of Mother Earth – lay threadbare

TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW
TAKE IT ALL -
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW

Take all the resources – from the ground
And once they've gone see what is left around
And when the storm – breaks out it's cage
You feel its' force – you feel its' rage
you see the destruction – lie all around

TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW
TAKE IT ALL -
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW
LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW

WHAT WILL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN EVER THINK?

Track Name: 2a/ Anyhow Anyway (McKella) - Live at Blind Cat Festival 2016
Anyhow Anyway
I feel the dark winter night – bearing down on me
I see a neon light – flashing for all to see
I make my way – pacing anxiety
Looking at people – in this strange city

And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be
And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do
And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change
And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do
Anyhow – anyway

And now the weather's turned cold – you glisten in the rain
I see you check your image – in a shop window pane
You know there must be shelter – we got to get far from here
To bury those emotions – bury these fears

And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be
And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do
And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change
And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do
Anyhow – anyway

And in walking this life – walking these legacies
We're looking for shelter – we're looking for sanctuary
Get the feeling right – and hope this weather's gonna change
Can you see that light – I hope it's in range

And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be
And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do
And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change
And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do
Anyhow – anyway
Track Name: 4a/ Matter of Anti-Matter ( McKella/ Matthars /Thomas/Golland) - Live at Blind Cat Festival 2016
Matter of Anti matter

I travel so much faster – in my hydro collider
I’m travelling faster – than the speed of light
I know it’s hard to believe – I arrive before I leave
You think you see me coming – then I’m out of sight
I’m standing on the edge – of an event horizon
Trying my best – not to fall through
I know that if I slip – it’s a one way trip
And I don’t know what is there - on the other side

Chorus:

It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
in this transient universe

And somewhere in a bedsit – in west London
Were the scribbles of a man – called Professor Johnson
Working out his calculus – on his steady state theory –
Excommunicated - by Harvard University
Galileo was also - accused of heresy
But he made it into the history books – of cosmology
It’s a matter of anti-matter –in this universe
It’s an anti-matter of matter – when it’s held up in reverse

Chorus:

It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
It’s a matter of anti-matter – It’s an anti-matter of matter –
It’s a matter of anti-matter – in this universe
in this transient universe

Distant Dreams

1/

And as you sit and wonder how
As you see this – here and now
You wonder how we’ll all get through
& In these days - of distant dreams
So far away now- that it seems
A place where we all want to stay

Chorus:

We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today

Each and everyone of us
Is this the time - that we must suss
And try to work out what it means
We are the children – of the sun
Now is the time that we should learn
A way to re-connect our dreams

Chorus:

We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today

2/

We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today
We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today

Points of View

1/
I saw the news the other day
It told me of the way that things were going
I heard a politician say
That things were alright – things were ok
I try and read between the lines
Try and see what's there behind
But every time I try and find
running into blanks – time and time again

Chorus
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
AFTER ALL THE THINGS I SAW YOU DO
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
I-WAS TRYING TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND ON – YOU------

2/
I try and find another way
Trying to find some information
I'm watching politics in play
Trying to find some def-in-ition
and the more I try and find
Watching doors closing – one by one
And it's always against time
Facts are hidden and the evidence is stolen

Chorus
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
AFTER ALL THE THINGS I SAW YOU DO
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
I-WAS TRYING TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND ON YOU
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
AFTER ALL THE THINGS I SAW YOU DO
I TRY AND SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW
I-WAS TRYING TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND ON – YOU------

Take Me To The Future
1/
Take me to the future now - Take me to see the stars
I want to see the rivers - on a terraformed Mars
I want to see salvation – a place for us to know
where man looks to the heavens - a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2/

I want to see the wonders – of the Galaxy
I want to see all of the – new technologies
I want to see the future - send me out to space
I want to see the stepping stones –
of the human race
of the human race
of the human race
of the human race
take me to the future (now) x8
take me
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3/

Take me to the edges – of the Universe
I want to see the colonies – away from Planet Earth
Send me to the future – an oracle in space
a cosmic resolution – that might save the human race
that might save the human race that might save the human race that might save the human race that might save the human race
take me to the future (now) x8
take me
Track Name: 9a/ State Of The Nation (McKella) - Live at Kozfest Festival 2016
State of the Nation

1/

The situation's hopeless - Can I be so sure
The circumstance is changing - As they lay another law
Complicated strategy - Beyond the status quo
The system starts to fracture - And no-one wants to know

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

2/
The politicians tighten - the people start to bleed
the reason for more chaos - as the leaders start to weed
the people start to run - but there's nowhere left to go
with governments ambiguious - but do they really know

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

3/
Should the time be coming – when the system starts to break
the people start the running – running out the fake
elect a new leader -
now watch your system crack - crack

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

Track Name: 4b/ All Said and Done (McKella) - Live at The Acoustic Revolution 1998
ALL SAID AND DONE

1/
I didn’t see the warnings, I didn’t see the signs
Too busy running round chasing spent time
You know I didn’t mean it
I never meant it that way
I didn’t hear your calls, didn’t hear your sighs
Too busy running round I never realized
You know I never meant it
I never meant it that way.

Chorus:
And I know I said
you know I never want to lose you
And I know I said
you know I never want to hurt you

2/
I didn’t see the stress, didn’t see the strain
I didn’t even mean if when I left you with the blame
You know I didn’t mean it
I never meant if that way.
I never heard your cry, never saw your tears
You know if can’t be me that is adding to your fears
You know I never meant it
I never meant it that way.

Chorus:
And I know I said
you know I never want to lose you
And I know I said
you know I never want to hurt you

3/
I didn’t mean to scream, I didn’t mean shout
I don’t even recall how then all came about
You know I didn’t meant it
Didn’t mean it that way.
I didn’t mean to do it, the reason you decide
That I must be some kind of Jekyll and Hyde
You know I didn’t mean it
Didn’t mean it that way.

Chorus:
And I know I said
you know I never want to lose you
And I know I said
you know I never want to hurt you //: x2
And with all said end done... you know I never want to hurt you And with all said end done — you know I never want to lose you

Looking down, looking for a place to land.

Cord rip, feel the strings haul me back.

Look down you know it really ain’t that far.
Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go
Look down with 700 feet to go.
