"Sleeping Lion" as written by Alexander Timothy X Burnett and David John M Hall....
When the sun goes down I walk home Alone and no one comes round,
Some things are better left bottled Inside for me no one else,

We're all little time bombs ticking away
Too little breath and too much to say
Even if it feels as useless as repeating the same old dream

When I lie in bed
With this mess in my head
Keep my pride in check
It's only time before i find some one to rely on

Sometimes I hold my tongue when I really should speak until I'm done,
So when you see me smiling, deep down inside I'm dying a mile away,

Gotta stay mobile gotta keep hungry,
You won't live long if you don't believe,
Even if it feels as useless as repeating the same old dream

When I lie in bed
Put my mind to rest,
Keep my pride in check
It's only time before you wake a sleeping lion.
