Lyrics


MORALLY DELINQUENT
from The Here & Now EP
Words and Music by Judith Owen

LET ME TELL YOU ALL A STORY
ABOUT A MAN WHO DIDN’T CARE
WHAT HE DID FOR POWER AND GLORY
CONSCIENCE.. NEVER HELD HIM BACK
ALWAYS ON ATTACK, HE WAS

and HE BUILT HIMSELF A KINGDOM
ON THE BACKS OF OTHER MEN
IF THEY SHOUTED
HE’D SHOUT LOUDER
TAUGHT HIS SONS
TO ACT THE WAY HE DID
NOT TO KID THEMSELVES
SO WHAT IF ALL THEY HAD UP THERE…WERE


SHIT FOR BRAINS
HE TOLD THEM
(IF YOU’RE)JUST BE MORALLY DELINQUENT
AND YOU’LL WIN YOUR OWN WAY…
YOU’LL MAKE THEM ALL PAY..

SO YOU SAY
WHAT YOU WANT
WHAT YOU NEED
TO MAKE THEM BELIEVE
MAKE IT BIG
MAKE IT GOOD
WHEN YOU LIE,
IT’S A WORD FROM THE WISE
CHOOSE YOUR SIDE
NEVER BASED
ON REAL FAITH
BULLY BOY
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
THIS IS ALL ABOUT YOU

AND THE MORAL OF THIS STORY
ABOUT THE MAN WHO DIDN’T CARE
IS THAT HE SITS IN EVERY BOARD ROOM
HIS STATUE’S IN THE SQUARE
AND HE DOESN’T NEED DIPLOMAS
HE’D BUY THEM IF HE DID
COS EMPATHY’S FOR LOSERS
TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR
IF IT’S MONEY, IF IT’S JESUS
NATURAL SELECTION
WHO NEEDS INTROSPECTION
WHEN YOU’VE GOT…

SHIT FOR BRAINS
YOU’RE MORALLY DELINQUENT
YOU’LL MAKE US ALL PAY…








You Are Not My Friend
from Ebb & Flow album
Words & Music by Judith Owen

they say (now) the writing's on the wall
I could not see it till today
You made such fools out of us all
It took me (such) a long time,
but now I see through all those parts you play cause...

you're always the victim
or so goes your story
your pains and your worries
seem to weave and bend,
don't play me your sad song
I know you'll turn when you want to
don't tell me your secrets
you are not my friend

So now the writing's on the wall
I'm Betty Davis on the stairs
the only one who sees the greedy face behind it all
tea and sympathy
but watch out when the hammer falls cause..

you're always the victim
or so goes your story
your pains and your worries
seem to weave and bend,
don't play me your sad song
I know you'll turn when you want to
don't tell me your secrets
you are not my friend

FORK IN THE ROAD
from The Here & Now EP
Music and Words by Judith Owen

THESE ARE STRANGE TIMES
WE DON’T WHERE WE’RE GOING
PLAYS ON THE MIND
ALL OF THIS UNKNOWING
FOR ALL OF OUR LIVES
IT’S JUST SO TERRIFYING
WE’RE AT THE BREAKING POINT IT’S TRUE

AND NOW IS THE TIME
TO CHANGE THIS WORLD FOR BETTER
JUST READ THE SIGNS
WE’VE ALL BEEN SENT THE LETTER
WE’VE CROSSED THE LINE
BUT IF WE STAND TOGETHER
THERE’S SO MUCH WE CAN DO

IF WE JUST

GIVE A LITTLE LOVE,
GIVE A LITTLE LOVE
TO EACH OTHER

IF WE HAVE A LITTLE FAITH,
JUST A LITTLE FAITH
IN ONE ANOTHER

STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT,
WHAT IS RIGHT
WHAT REALLY MATTERS (not the dollar)

TURN AWAY FROM HATE
BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
AND WE’VE LOST EVERYTHING

THIS MUCH I KNOW
WE’RE AT THE FORK IN THE ROAD

THE STREETS OF THIS TOWN
ARE FILLED WITH PEACE AND ANGER
TO TURN THIS AROUND
WE WON’T WATCH ANY LONGER
AND NOT MAKE A SOUND
WE NEED TO RIGHT THE WRONGS HERE
FROM THE GROUND UP
IF WE JUST…

GIVE A LITTLE LOVE,
GIVE A LITTLE LOVE
TO EACH OTHER

IF WE HAVE A LITTLE FAITH,
JUST A LITTLE FAITH
IN ONE ANOTHER

STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT,
WHAT IS RIGHT
WHAT REALLY MATTERS (not the dollar)

TURN AWAY FROM HATE
BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
AND WE’VE LOST EVERYTHING

THIS MUCH I KNOW
WE’RE AT THE FORK IN THE ROAD
