Fragmented Words (Jodie's Song)

Jodie is restless
She lies awake at night
Wondering how much more
She can really take it

Something is lost
Can’t find it now
She’s saddened to know
She can’t fake it (any more)

She’s spent all her life
Listening but never heard
Now she only speaks
In fragmented words

Fragmented words
That fall to the floor
There’s no one there
To pick them up any more

Jodie is missing
She’s poured out her feelings
In a written letter
That no one will be reading

She’s spent all her life
Listening but never heard
Now she only speaks
In fragmented words

Fragmented words
That fall to the floor
There’s no one there
To pick them up any more

 

We've Been Taken for a Ride

I see so many promises
Broken and glued with hope
So much opportunity
Those that couldn’t cope

We all need recognition
Voices we want to hear
All we get are twisted words
Poison tipped with fear

We’re being
Taken, taken for a ride
We’re being
Taken, taken for a ride
We’re being
Taken, taken for a ride

I see so much injustice
Greed gets in the way
Souls that are laid to waste
Crushed, then blown away

Greet you with a limp-shake
Smile, then walk away
They promise you everything
Then say you’ve gotta pay

We’ve been
Taken, taken for a ride
Taken for a ride
So much deception
Makes you wanna cry
Because we’ve been
Taken, taken for a ride

A Hundred Times

I’ve been waiting for that phone call
or a letter of intent
I must have written a hundred times
Now they’ve all been sent

I’m looking for the opportunity
I need a lucky break
I’m hoping someone wants me
Before it’s too late

A hundred letters
A hundred times
It ain’t no fun
After a hundred times

It ain’t no fun
Looking for a start
Writing a hundred times
Begging for a part

I’ve spent so long
I’ve tried my very best
It ain’t no fun
Failing to impress

A hundred letters
A hundred times
It ain’t no fun
After a hundred times

I’m hoping I might get a chance
or some acknowledgement
Waiting for the mail to arrive
A reply is all I want

Squeezed Times

These are the squeezed times
Really tough times
Ain’t no one helping you out
Squeezed times
Really tough times

You put your hand
Deep inside your pocket
There’s nothing left
Someone else has got it

You search for a
Little bit of cash
But all your money
Been burned to ash

These are the squeezed times
Tough times
No one’s gonna help you out
Squeezed times, really tough times
These are the squeezed times

You look for your home
A roof over your head
You find someone else
Is there instead

You look for your keys
But you’ve missed a payment
Looks like tonight
You’re on the pavement

Fancy getting together to make some music?
