Fair New Day 05:24
Fair New Day ©PetePascoe 2013 AS THE MAN STOOD AMONGST HIS PEERS HE SAID : THINK OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING AND DOWN THEY CANT RISE ABOVE THEIR FEARS YEH, THERE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GO AROUND ALL THE INJUSTICES THAT ARE LYING, INGRAINED IN THE HEART A CLEAN SLATE: WELL THAT DAY SEEMS SO FAR AWAY, BUT WE ALL NEED TO MAKE A START AND OH WHAT PART CAN I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY ALL THE PAIN THAT WE'VE BEEN THROUGH AND ALL THAT IS YET TO BE LOOK TO THE JOY THAT SINGS SO TRUE IT TAKES YEARS FOR US TO SEE HOW WE WERE BORN TO SHAPE THE FUTURE IT'S NOT OUR ROLE JUST TO WAIT AND SEE SEEK YOUR PATH TO FIND WHAT’LL SUIT YER TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO BE AND ASK: OH WHAT PART CAN I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY ASK ANYONE WHO'S TRULY FOUGHT A WAR TO REFLECT AND SEE IF ANYTHING’S BEEN GAINED HE’LL SAY NO - AND WE SHOULD FIGHT NO MORE ALL WE'VE CREATED IS MORE PAIN IF WE PUT ALL THE LOVE WE CAN FIND IN OUT HEARTS AND EVERY CORNER OF OUR LIVES AND LET IT POUR INTO OUR MINDS HOW COULD WE SWIM AGAINST THAT TIDE? OH WHAT PART SHALL I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY WE STARTED OUT A LONG TIME AGO YET WE START OUT AGAIN EACH DAY ALL WE'VE DREAMED OF, LONGED FOR AND FOLLOWED CLOTHES OUR SOUL, WEIGHS US DOWN OR SETS US FREE NONE OF THIS IS NEWS TO YOU OR ME I WON'T KNOCK ON YOU DOOR AND TROUBLE YOU WITH MORE I’LL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS AND MAYBE, WE’LL SEE WE COULD CHANGE TO GOOD WHAT IS TO BE OH WHAT PART SHALL I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY.

Lost or Won 02:42
LOST OR WON (ALL THOSE YEARS) P. PASCOE JUNE 2013 WHEN THE GAME’S BEEN LOST OR WON DOES IT MATTER WHO’S LEFT WITH A SMOKING GUN? AND WHEN ALL’S BEEN SAID AND DONE IS A BATTLE EVER FULLY LOST OR WON? ALL THAT’S SACRIFICED FOR THE CAUSE WILL THEY EVER JUSTIFY THESE WARS? AND OF THE SURVIVORS: HOW WILL THEY DEAL WITH MEMORIES FROM THOSE DAYS? INST HOW DO WE EXPLAIN TO OUR CHILDREN THE WORLD CAN BE THIS WAY - HOW TO HELP THEM HAVE AN OPTIMISTIC VIEW OF THE FUTURE? THE SEEDS OF HOPE WE MUST NURTURE WHEN THE GAMES BEEN LOST OR WON DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHO BEGAN THIS TALE OF WOE AND ALL THE SUFFERING? WHAT’S BEEN GAINED IF IT ALL COMES TO NOTHING AHH THE SUFFERING WHAT’S BEEN GAINED IF WE DONT LEARN FROM ALL THOSE YEARS.
