"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 will leave you alone in my own 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.
Knocking 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.
Take stock of your time and ability.
Make room for the noise on your page.
Trust you not to learn,
When the tables turned.
The tables turned.

Substandard 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 stream
Remember it's us now.

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