Track Name: Beneath The Lights
No food to eat
Barely a bed to sleep
Still the starving, poor workers, work their dark days
Wasting away at your feet

Beneath the lights
They're kept away
Theres no escape
They're counting their days
Beneath the lights
They're kept away
And theres no escape

So the tyrants and their hands of greed
Want far much more than they need
And their hands are stained with the blood of the workers
They continue to mislead

You've gone too far
You've pushed them too far
And I can see a dark reality
At the bottom of Qatar
Track Name: Nation None The Wiser
Nation none the wiser
To the forces that have the control
Locked to the screens, newspapers, Tat magazines
Media is taking its toll

Story carries the problem
Reaction is led by belief
Fear makes you hope that their is a solution
To give you false sense of relief

Social media's captured the children
The adults and children alike
Bombarded by confusion, brainwashed in illusion
Freedom so far from sight
