Eternal Love Are you a believer in what you know Worship at the altar at what you’ve been told Moving without question into the future Measure for measure, an eye for an eye I don’t want to hear it, you don’t want to know it Is there such a thing as Eternal Love I am not convinced at all Driving down the highway with blinkers on Say something profound, you might enjoy it I don’t want to see the fault line in the ground Take your colours of the rainbow to some other town I don’t want to hear it, you don’t want to know it Is there such a thing as Eternal Love I am not convinced at all

Bonfire I’m looking the bonfire and want to take control My mind says says put it out but my soul says let it go I’m seeking explanation for all things under the sun I look inside the mind of God but he’s in everyone Oh sweetheart There’s no rules for us now All I know We can drop the mask I gaze up horizons circumnavigate the sun I’m lost upon the killing grounds in my home and in my car I’m a traveller a wanderer the one who counts the cost The seeker lover beggar and the one that has been lost Oh sweetheart There’s no rules for us now All I know We can be as one

Moving Trains (Jim Moginie, Caleb Crosby & Tyler Bryant) Praise the pioneers For they know not what they do They bring their selfish ways And slash and burn the land They laid the road and rail With no witnesses to see So pull down your black veil And take a window seat Moving Trains Took my heart away Left me waiting at the station Standing still It's the hardest thing To watch you make your getaway Moving Trains She set the trail for high noon Let no witnesses into the room To attest to what's been done To judge the glorious ones In their fancy clothes They sailed into the great unknown Are they just like you? Or do they stand alone? Circle the wagons round Rewrite history now The truth you'll never find With a made up mind Moving Trains Took my heart away Left me waiting at the station Standing still It's the hardest thing To watch you make your getaway (Everybody leaves on) Moving Trains Set the wheels in motion Thousand miles of rail It's easier to run than face the failure The vultures rule that western sky Spread their wings and you fly right beside them You always had a way From time to time I ran off the tracks Once you cross that line you can't go back Forgiveness, it's show business Tell me honey now what you're gonna do You can run all you want You cant outrun you

Words (Moginie, Blasko) Words.... from outer space Words.... from the mouths of babes The mouth moves faster Than the mind can chase Words I’d better keep watch on my heart I said too much right from the start I’d better keep it under, keep it under, keep it undergound Words ...like double Dutch Words... that lack the human touch Wish I could recall the ones When they said too much Words I’d better keep them in my heart So better off to hide them and start To keep them buried under, buried under, buried undergound I will follow your empire to its end I will I will I’d better keep a constant heart I’d better go back to the start
