"Pledge" as written by Cormac Murray Battle, Darragh Butler, William Patrick Dalton and Colin James Fenelly....
Take stock of your time and ability
Make room for the noise on your page
Can't give enough, can't give enough
I'm the man with the means and the influence
I won't leave you alone in my time
Can't give enough, can't give enough

So you rank with the names on the underground
They hope to see a sign of me falling down
Knock-knock-knock, knockin' on my windowsill
Another sweet reminder just to pay the bill
I can't see the jokes, am I hearing right?
I can't see the point of this circle tight
Can we hang around, we won't say a word
Remember it's us, now...

Conditioned not to wait
I intended to be late
You're never wrong
(Take stock of your time and ability
Make room for the noise on your page)
Trust you not to learn
With the tables turned the tables turned

Sub-standard sounds, stand and take a bow
Pat each other's back
Oh really can't you feel it now
You can blow your trumpet
I don't have to listen in
Unfortunate like mine it's just another din
Easily misread, easily mistook
Read about yourself when you create a look
We can manage to run on our own steam
Remember it's us, now...

Conditioned not to wait
I intended to be late
You're never wrong
(Take stock of your time and ability
Make room for the noise on your page)
Trust you not to learn
With the tables turned the tables turned

All the stories I told, you couldn't hear me
(I know the words have got no meaning)
All the things that you wrote, you wouldn't teach me
(I know the words have got no meaning)
Every word you say I am believing
(I know the words have got no meaning)
Even I was aware you didn't need me
I told you nothing!

Take stock of your time and ability
Make room for the noise on your page
Can't give enough, can't give enough
I'm the man with the means and the influence
I won't leave you alone in my time
Can't give enough, can't give enough.
