Lyrics

No Middle Ground

Written By: Providence (Lisa Noe & Pam Green)

CH: All are equal, that’s the hype
Depends on your status depends on your style of life
Signs are all around us, you’d better stand clear
Big brother is watching, his specialty is fear

More is better
Less is great
How do we keep up with the world today?
We see the graphic/tragic over look the good
Crave the excitement feel misunderstood (the great debate)

News Media the great debate
Ignore the government, except for whom they date
Everyone is starving for food or truth
We feed on the bad, spit out the good CH:

Love thy neighbor has new meaning
You see it everyday on the TV
So much anger, so much hate
Get stored in our youth today
Some talk to strangers names unknown
Leave your family on hold
It’s revolution or rapture
Oh, what’s wrong with this picture?
No middle ground (x2 CH:

Love thy neighbor has new meaning........

NO middle ground
(what’s wrong with this picture?)
NO middle ground
(It’s revolution or rapture)
NO middle ground

Pass The Message

Written By: Lisa Noe / Pam Green

Can’t you hear the screaming?
Can’t you see it … the tears we’ve cried?
We may not show a lot of emotion
But surely when you look within our eyes
You can see what our silence hides
You can see what our silence hides

Be seen and not heard, don’t you remember all the times you were told
To hide what’s inside
In our rooms our imagination soared to the sky (can’t you see me fly?)
To the sky (I can see you fly)

Diving in the darkness of our past
Oh stirs up the flames of anger we once thought had died ….oh
The words of wisdom (Just put it all behind you)
Won’t you let it die? (just put it all behind you)
Come on let it die.

Pass the message
Childhood rages do not disappear
Let’s talk to each other (pass the message)
Communication’s the key (pass the message)
Communication’s the key (pass the message)
Communication….is the key.

Pass the message
Childhood rages do not disappear
Let’s talk to each other (pass the message)
Communication’s the key (pass the message)
Communication’s the key (pass the message)
Communication….is the key.

Can’t you hear the screaming?
Can’t you see it … the tears we’ve cried?
We may not show a lot of emotion
But surely when you look within our eyes
You can see what our silence hides
You can see what our silence hides

Pass the message….

Naked

Written By: Lisa Noe & Pam Green

Let's get naked and I don't mean clothes.
Want to see who you are, want to see you exposed.
Want to sink into your skin, climb inside your mind.
In your thoughts I want to swim lose all track of time.

Let's get back to the basics baby
Let's get back to the basics yeah.

Talk to me and I don't mean idle chatter (talk to me)
Open up your soul 'cause nothin' else matters (talk to me)
Let's do a little one on one. (one on one)
I give I take, you take you give

All very simple baby,
We need each other to live
All very simple baby,
We need each other to live.

Let's get naked and I don't mean clothes.
Want to see who you are, want to see you exposed.
Let's do a little one on one. (one on one)
I give I take, you take you give

All very simple baby,
We need each other to live
All very simple baby,
We need each other to live.
All very simple baby,
We need each other to live.
