"Cracking The Whip" as written by and David Mcpherson....
Liberation day, face down in the reservoir, where's your street credibility now?
(Theo has dropped his crown)
Mirror-imaged shadows, passive fragments floating
A dignified loss suits you just fine my friend

Forgotten soldiers daydream
Your courage is not what it seems

Please forgive me, please believe me 'Cause our faith is strong
I don't deserve you I'll rest forever in this honesty eyes closed
Breaking the war-chest the soldiers complex, we just need more time
Just get on your knees and know that I'll be the one cracking the whip from here on

In bed with the moon flower, contradict the nestling
They think that your some kind of power elite
(Stay strong stay) true
Dreaming of nostalgia, emerald still gleaming
Every snowflake pleads not guilty in an avalanche

Please forgive me, please believe me 'Cause our faith is strong
I don't deserve you I'll rest forever in this honesty eyes closed
Breaking the war-chest the soldiers complex, we just need more time
Just get on your knees and know that I'll be the one cracking the whip from here on

This is goodbye, why will neither of us cry?
If the battle is won, why must we always come undone?

Please forgive me, please believe me 'Cause our faith is strong
I don't deserve you I'll rest forever in this honesty eyes closed
Breaking the war-chest the soldiers complex, we just need more time
Just get on your knees and know that I'll be the one cracking the whip from here on

    General CommentOkies, the bits I kinda guessed at are:

    1) "Ithiel has dropped his crown" - Ithiel is the only mythological character I could come up with that sounds like what Dave is saying ...

    2)"(But you're not true)" - Would guess this is wrong, but the correct lyric certainly ends in "Truth".

    3) "Ever all still bleaming" - 'bleaming' is not actually a word but I could not come up with anything better ... anyone any ideas?

    4) "Please not guilty in another life" - Almost certainly, the word 'life' is not correct.

    5) "Breaking the war chess" ... if it is 'war chess' then I question the word 'Breaking'. If it is 'Breaking', then 'war chess' is questionable. Does make a tiny bit of sence, but certainly not crystal clear...

    General CommentAre you sure these are right? "Every snowflake, please not guilty in an avalanche" makes no sense to me - "Every snowflake pleads not guilty in an avalanche" sounds more like it to me...
