about

As writer of all the songs, Carey would like each listener to interpret for themselves what each song is about and it is in this spirit that the lyrics are provided. Only track 6. Shon-key has a very specific subject matter - it is about John Key (the Prime Minister of Aotearoa) and his shifty ways!
Enjoy!

Track Name: Schoolyard
I know it's easy to feel alone
When there is one in the room and he's preying on you
You just need to break out of your shell
Don't even show your fear they'll hunt you down

Wise up young child
Theres allways a scrap in the schoolyard
When it's your turn to fight
To win it out you gotta hit back hard

You may be the weaklink, but don't let them know
It's a battle for respect and you're the bone
Don't take it to heart or suffocate your feelings
There's an ace inside of you, that can trump their king

Wise up young child
Theres allways a scrap in the schoolyard
When it's your turn to fight
To win it out you gotta hit back hard
Track Name: Nightmares
Mama I'm scared
Why has he got a gun to my head
Mama I'm scared

What did we do so wrong
On the street on my knees its cold and there numb
What did we do so wrong
I hear them marching round destroying round

Is this alright with you
Is this alright with you
I see his heartless eyes every time I close mine
Is this alright with you

Why are we still here
I've had no food this morning the hungers killing me thin
Why are we still here

When will we be let go
Stuck in this dark cold shed the light flickers through the holes
When will we be let go
I miss my mama dear I wanna feel her close

Is this alright with you
Is this alright with you
I see his heartless eyes every time I close mine
Is this alright with you

I can't fight my nightmares
She can't fight her nightmares
He can't fight her nightmares
We can't fight her nightmares

Is this alright with you
Is this alright with you
I see his heartless eyes every time I close mine
Is this alright with you
Track Name: Paradise
I take a look around and all I see is
A lonely man stranted on the street
And I wonder why does he lie there
Where is his home where is his shelter

I often walked by and never seemed to notice
The story on his sign so destroyed and dejected
But all he ask so bold and clear
Is for a help in hand to rise from his fears

Why cant we open our eyes
And realise that we can live in paradise
Live in paradise

It dont take long before thoughts come flooding
Of names hes called so violent and misleading
But who am i to judge of a mans misfortunes
Im sure id be surprised if i walk in his shoes

Now we are far from perfect
Spightfull and greedy some more than others
But how can we ignore that he lies starving
From the lack of our own humanity

Why cant we open our eyes
And realise that we can live in paradise
Live in paradise
Track Name: Only A Revolution
Michael Collins a working class soldier
Martin Luther a king without a crown
Malcolm X a hustler who changed heart
They were shot down, they were shot down

Only a Revolution will tackle our fears
Of feeling young and standing for liberty

Kate Sheppard with the power of the vote
Mandela a president after prison
Ali defied to go to war
They stood tall and they stood proud

Only a Revolution will tackle our fears
Of feeling young and standing for liberty

Does anger burn when you see your town run down
Do your eyes swell when children are shot dead on the ground
Do you cringe when you hear of corruption so clear
Fed up theres so many of us right

Only a Revolution will tackle our fears
Of feeling young and standing for liberty
Track Name: Shon-key
So many lies, he tells lies
Right before me, he lies before me
Look at his eyes those shonkey eyes
They shift so smoothly he's always fooling

We got alot to learn no point looking the other way
We got alot to learn he cant be doing this again

He smiles away smiles at the pain
Hes causing his town hes selling their land
He knows what to say he plays these games
Sweeps dirt under our feet while sipping his tea

We got alot to learn no point looking the other way
We got alot to learn he cant be doing this again

He will never understand
He will never understand
He will never understand
Key will never understand us

We got alot to learn no point looking the other way
We got alot to learn he cant be doing this again
Track Name: Peace Lines
I only see the high walls but no peace and security
I only hear the loud calls from marches of victory
and I feel an anger burning up its getting hard to hold inside of me
Its getting late and theres nothing left to do but to go on down

To throw stones on the peace lines
To throw stones on the peace lines

I only saw the high walls as barricades to tear down
I only heard the loud calls to rise up and throw petrol bombs
and that anger it came from within and within living in a war zone
and now as I look across the street children are running on down

To throw stones on the peace lines
To throw stones on the peace lines
To hurl abuse on the peace lines
To throw stones on the peace lines

As long as those walls stand tall
As long as those drums march on
A city divided it will stand but united it will fall
And children will never learn to understand
its not always their neighbours fault

Theres always stones on the peace lines
Track Name: Delightful
It's so delightful its hard to turn away
I do what i like so the urge is here to stay
You can tell me a hundred times to step back and put it down
the pictures are still so raw Im sorry to let you down

Its in my mind to leave it all behind
But it gets hard to forget and walk on by

We shouldnt argue it wont always be this way
My time will come soon to end this selfish faze
I understand why you get upset it hurts me to see you so
The pictures are still so raw Im trying to let them go

Its in my mind to leave it all behind
But it gets hard to forget and walk on by
Track Name: Heroes
We stand our ground
As the water gushes against our face
We hear no sound
Our feelings our numb from hitting the ground

I dreamed we were there on Robben Island
We tore down the wall in Berlin
We stood united in '81
And I dreamed we freed our city tonight

Say you care once again
Say you care once again
Say you care once again
And may you be strenghtened by the souls who didnt back down

Blood rushes from our head
As we stumble to find our feet again
We raise our flag high in sight
As we find our voice for what we believe

The army will arise on the horizon
And that shows our force is out from hiding
We stand here in peace were not for fighting
But we wont move an inch any more for their poison

Say you care once again
Say you care once again
Say you care once again
And may you be strenghtened by the souls who didnt back down
