OK Life OK, A OK, KO, Life A world exists where what's what is not be careful unraveling what it seems may knot cause it's an OK, So so, A OK, No No, KO, Yo Yo, Life What's here so far Is near too far So far It's near So near It's here And so What if If that's What is What if It is That that's Just it

Chain Mail I took my chain mail off today Risk exposure to the world I say It's a danger I've been told But I needed freedom for the soul Could be that you'll pierce my skin And expose the man within Wake the lion up from his lair Shake the years off he's been locked up there Cause this young soul's getting older and older And it don't care, no it don't care Cause this young soul's getting bolder and bolder And it don't care, no it don't care I took my chain mail off today Took a load off I should say We travel so far to believe when the Journey's end is there to achieve I took my chain mail off today So now the soul is free again Free to perceive and believe again Free to reach and achieve again I took my chain mail off today Risk exposure to the world I say It's a danger i'v been told But I needed freedom for the soul

Ain't Got Time I ain't got time to sing the blues I'm just too busy being amused By all the faces that I see Here's looking at you, here's looking at me, No time to spend feelin' down No room on my face for a frown Life is full of windows and walls So before you climb just learn to fall Now If your day seems a little rough And you really feel like getting tough Ride that wave onto the shore The storm will pass and be no more And if you reach that crucial stage When you feel like life is but a cage shake those shackles from your mind Take a look at yourself, your one of a kind

Believe There's a place I know far from all the chaos It's not a place you'd know but aren't you curious They've got some thing's there that just can't be found here Don't think of diamonds or crusted jewels If I lead you Will you follow Cause I can show you The new tomorrow For us.... There's a place I know, It's there I've seen it It's not a place you'd know, It doesn't exist yet But if you come with me, through thorn and thicket It's then we'll see it, we'll see it clearly We've got to be now, believing in difference We've got to see now, through the eyes of the children we've got to learn now, learn it from the beginning It's then we'll see it, We'll see it clearly

Prisoner of Industry You work for a living but you wish you were free You see the door but you can't find the key The way through is closed by your body's needs You're a prisoner of industry Your body adapts and your mind is controlled By the people who know you are digging for gold They exploit in the knowledge that you live in fear Your a prisoner of industry Your friends and your enemies, they smile and please As they feed their teeth on material needs Your only sanctuary is your thoughts and your dreams You are a prisoner of Industry

You Will Fly The ticket's there in your hand But the train 's gone down the track The voyage is dead before it begins And you stand there wishing it back The castles built in the sky lie crumbled all round your feet You sit there wondering why And look for ways to beat defeat Then you see the flowers in her hair You see the wonder in her eyes You see the roses on her tight pursed lips And you know that one day you will fly (x2) Then again along a different path The journey's still to the fore The spirit searches for way's to break free And the soul is listing ounce more (x2) Now you shake the hands of distant fate You wipe your hands of the mistakes You make a pact with the future my friend And you wonder if fools are all the same (x2)

Ship In the Night You came like a ship in the night Brought with you your insight The bigger picture to be seen In those emotional dreams Yet you hid in broad daylight Longing for reclusive life Walking in a waking dream Living with your heart on your sleeve Never seen in spotlight hid in shadow of limelight (Repeat) You were there like a a ship in the night Yet you set the screen alight You gently etched the scenes Called in the emotional themes You gave us the building blocks Helped us see the joy and the knocks You walked with will in the sand Searching for his promised land You passed like a ship in the night As you reached the awesome heights Why did you have to go Leave us there in the middle of the show You looked through troubled eyes Longed again for reclusive life You hid behind the shroud Battled hard but It couldn't be found

Beginning To End Four o'clock in the morning drove the pedal to the floor Cranked up the stereo just as far as it would go The fury of the music clouded every thought I had to leave this city, this city had to go And nothing really matters now but the music in my ears Walking through no man's land petrified with fear Yes nothing really matters now but the music in my ears She couldn't make me hear her voice or see her happy tears Four o'clock in the morning drove the pedal to the floor Passed a million miles of lights I'd never seen before They burned into the darkness like the memory within With fever passion fury hate driving me insane Five o'clock in the morning took the pedal off the floor Looking for the journey's end don't want to fight no more I look at some old street signs to find out where I am Now I know, I know it's so I'm back at the beginning again Now I know, I know it's so I'm back beginning again (repeat x3) Now I know I know it's so I'm back beginning...... AGAIN

Like A Dream I saw your picture in the paper today Front page making headline news A big spread about something you did I guess you made it up there my friend And the words you said came into my head When we walked together back then You said them over and over (x3) You said..... It's like a dream that's there in front of you It can't be seen but you know it could be true You've got to feel it like the early morning dew You've got to see it and believe that it's for you Went home nothing special to do Sat down, switched on the T.V There you were on a prime time show Talking on a subject you know I wondered if you remembered me Cause the words you said wouldn't leave my head You said them over and over (x3) You said.... Next day I picked up my life Went to work as I usually do Took a break wen't out for some air I didn't think that I'd bump into you And as you took my shaking hand You said the words that were in my head You said them over and over (x3) You said.....

You As your lips touch my skin I feel the world awake again You see I've been away for so long I never thought you'd come along And as you whispered in my ear The words I longed for to hear My heart it soared into the sky To join the stars and jump for joy And as you wander to my side A glimpse of heaven fills my eyes God just handed me the key to open the door and walk inside And as your hand it brushed mine A well of freedom grew inside It came from deep inside my soul and overflowed to blow my world As the sun begins to rise And I still find you by my side The fears of years have gone to hide You breath a peace into my mind And as your lips touch my skin I feel the world awake again You see I've been away for so long I never thought you'd come along (x3)

Shades Of Colour I stand at the door where my father stood I open it wide as I knew he would His shadow is with me as I walk this earth casting reminders of the endless search Ooooh hey hey (x2) When I go to the places where faces aren't faces anymore I see my dreams, illusions and delusions on the floor Where mystery is not mystery And talking is not talking anymore Where people are but fools Even children are not funny anymore Ooooh hey hey (x2) Ooooooh... He said your future dreams and aspirations Are shades of colours already there (x4) They are there, there, there, there, there there They are there, there, there, there, there there

The Valley Go back to the valley of the peasant people And look in the mirror of your destiny These, they are not games that we are playing People have hearts that want to be free And I can't go on, go on pretending In this nature-less place of the concrete and the fumes For we are twisting, yes we are tearing The rules of the jungle But the Valley is refuge And refuge is the truth Now who do you want to be your master And what are the things that you hold near How fast can you go without going faster People and numbers only breed fear Now look at the buildings and look at the future Look at the people that hide between the stone The feared and the sacred are part of this structure That brings us destruction but yet we still hold

Hi, Tom Campbell here. I am a singer songwriter based in the west of Ireland. 'Walked 1000 miles' is my latest single to be found at pulse160.com.
I was lucky to have exceptional help from all the artists involved in this project.
My earlier album 'OK Life' can also be found here. I really hope that you enjoy it and that it provokes a little thought in your life.
