Heart of our time (1985)

Heart of our time  3:38
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

All around
So much change is taking place
Everywhere
We're moving in a different way
All around
You can feel the wind of change
It's out there
On the streets
It's beyond the wildest dreams
Can't imagine

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Here we are
About to take the biggest step
The heat is on
Maybe we can make it yet
Reaching out
Trying to make the other side
What we're after
Face to face
Waiting for the moment when
We stand there

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

It's the only way there is
We have a chance to put things right
Gotta leave the darkest road
And head into the light

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Walk in your own light  4:17
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

We held it all
In our hands
Where a state of mind
Like a new born child
We're the colours of the rainbow
And all the love you gave
We've witnessed
To the lives you've saved
Oh the powers that be
Might recognise and really see

Breaking free the chains
Singing songs for life
Feeding hungry mouths
Walk in your own light
Doesn't matter who you are
The reasons why you gave
Brothers of the skin
Walk in your own light

You opened up so many eyes
You touched our hearts
Made free men cry
In a moment when we all knew
We've a chance to give
Something for someone to live
It's our right to speak
To share our table
Where the world can eat

Breaking free the chains
Singing songs for life
Feeding hungry mouths
Walk in your own light
Doesn't matter who you are
The reasons why you gave
Brothers of the skin
Walk in your own light

Genius?  5:30
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

If only they knew what we're doing
Who knows, we might have a chance
If only they'd hear what I'm saying
God knows, we might have a chance
To make a contribution
A standing Institution
I remember the dream

Who can see where we're going?
Maybe there's room for a change
Time slips like sand through my fingers
Sometime I feel so old
Is it worth the mind games?
Am I going insane?
Oh, come in from the cold

I wanna make it in my own time
For absent friends and faces
I wanna stay when the lights go up
The show it wasn't wasted
I wanna make it in my own time
For absent friends and faces
I wanna stay when the lights go up
In a sea of faces

Why am I always the loser?
God knows I'm not like the rest
You can survive on the surface
I wish I could too
Always walking the same road
Always carrying the same load
Come in from the cold

I wanna make it in my own time
For absent friends and faces
I wanna stay when the lights go up
The show it wasn't wasted
I wanna make it in my own time
For absent friends and faces
I wanna stay when the lights go up
In a sea of faces

Expressing the heart  6:35
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Black and white
Expressing the heart of our time
Old and young
Expressing the heart of our time

You and me
We, have so much to learn
We speak as children do
Without fear of our lives

Love and hate
Expressing the heart of our time
Things we say
Expressing the heart of our time

You and me
We, have so much to learn
We speak as children do
Without fear of our lives

Black and white
Expressing the heart of our time
Old and young
Expressing the heart of our time

Love and hate
Expressing the heart of our time
Things we say
Expressing the heart of our time

High climber  4:09
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

I am the high climber
And I'm never gonna stop
Gotta keep pushing
Gonna make it to the top
I am the high climber
Got the bit between my teeth
You better watch out now
Gonna knock you off your feet

Don't stand in my way
I'm a rolling stone
A Sherman Tank
I really mean
And executive breed
High powered machine
And when I stalk the streets of Hollywood
I'll climb the stairway to the stars for sure
Cause I've got class and more

I am the high climber
And I'm never gonna stop
Gotta keep pushing
Gonna make it to the top
I am the high climber
Got the bit between my teeth
You better watch out now
Gonna knock you off your feet

I'm one big surprise
A real live wire
A megge dude
I spread it around
I'm the DJ's friend
Give points for plays
I'll buy a multi coloured rag mag
And let the critics all get rave reviews
For the bar room blues

I am the high climber
And I'm never gonna stop
Gotta keep pushing
Gonna make it to the top
I am the high climber
Got the bit between my teeth
You better watch out now
Gonna knock you off your

Crossfire  4:20
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Caught us standing in the crossfire

Don't make a move
The tension is rising
It's a suicide trip
No time for heroes
The runaway's a frightening sight
Staring through bloodshot eyes

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Caught us standing in the crossfire

We'd have been there by now
Breathing the free air
I'd waited so long
To walk in the sunshine
It's all someone else's fight
Who the hell's got the God given right?

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Held a gun against my head
Demanded some strange destination
Some poor souls been left for dead

So while you think of me
Remember this
If freedom's worth fighting for
Don't give in

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Held a gun against my head
Demanded some strange destination
Some poor souls been left for dead

Grown ups  3:10
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Go play outside little one
Daddy will call
When our time has come
We're in the hands of the grown ups

We sow the seeds
And watch it grow
But unlike us
You'll never know
It was in the hands of the grown ups

You can sleep safely in your bed
While the knife it cuts deep
The blood it runs red
Did anyone hear who fired the first shot?
Who licked the first wound
Was the last one to drop?
It's just a game
When you're grown up

One small step  3:40
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

All in all this world is what it is
We shall leave the way we came
Changed in years, lives and memories
All the pictures that make up our day

One small step
Is all we'll ever take
In this slipstream of mankind
All the things we'd have liked to do
Had we been much older then

Standing alone at the end
With the sun full in my eyes
Thinking of what we might see
Had we lived a lifetime from now

All in all this world is what it is
We shall leave the way we came
Changed in years, lives and memories
All the pictures that make up our day

Standing alone at the end
With the sun full in my eyes
Thinking of what we might see
Had we lived a lifetime from now

All in all this world is what it is
We shall leave the way we came
Changed in years, lives and memories
All the pictures that make up our day

One small step
Is all we'll ever take
In this slipstream of mankind
All the things we'd have liked to do
Had we been much older then
