Track Name: Rise Above - Unplugged
Well you're feeling insignificant, and you seem so small
And some people seem to think you don't belong at all
Just imagine that you're weightless, put your mind at ease
And get set to catch the currents of the springtime breeze

And you'll rise above, and you will rise above
When you're buffetted around by the push and shove
Well it's just another challenge you can rise above. Yeah!

Well you dove into the water, tried to swim but instead
Now you realise you've gotten in over your head
Well just kick towards the surface, try to stay afloat
Coz I'm coming out to get you in my rescue boat

And we will rise above, and we will rise above
When we're buffetted around by the push and shove
Well it's just another challenge you can rise above.

So - lose that excess baggage, silence all invective
Soar across the dangers as you take a stand corrective
The snapping at your ankles will be rendered ineffective
With some elevation and a new perspective

When you can't see your way forward, it's just fog and mist
And that shiny bright tomorrow doesn't yet exist
Never mind you've an agenda full of endless trials
Let's go climb the nearest mountain, you can see for miles!

And we can rise above, and you can rise above
When you're buffetted around by the push and shove
Well it's just another challenge, it's just another challenge
We can rise above, and you can rise above
When we're buffetted around by the push and shove
Well it's just another challenge you can rise above.
Track Name: Upside Down - Unplugged
I had no premonition before this began, things were humming along, they were going to plan
They were going to plan, 'twas all tidy and neat, with the ground staying put down under my feet
And then from under my feet there was a shift and a shake, as the solid foundations were starting to break
Starting to break with convention whenever you're 'round, coz you're turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.

Well I could get my bearings if I could ease my mind, but I couldn't level off if I was so inclined
But now you're so inclined, just got to leave it to fate, now my brain and my limbs won't coordinate
And your coordinate axes, like nothing I've seen, I'm tumbling around like in a washing machine
And in that washing machine, the suds I'll drown, coz you're turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.

And through hell or high water, to hell with remorse, when faced with this dilemma gotta stray, of course,
But if you stray off course you'll end up in a hole, the horizon disappears, you tumble out of control
And now you're out of control, your senses askewed, gyroscopic with the lopsided attitude
But with that attitude, you deserve the renown, for turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
Track Name: All Gonna Be Alright - Unplugged
You made a blue - one step forward, and two steps back
You made a few - more work for anyone who's keeping track
You made it through - and yet again it seems you've got the knack
And it's all gonna be alright
You never find - you get the benefit of any doubt
They're never kind enough to hear just what you're on about
Well never mind, because I'm sure that it will all work out
And it's all gonna be alright.

It's all gonna be all, be alright
It's all gonna be OK in spite of the
Stormy seas there's a warm breeze
And the horizon's looking bright
And it's all gonna be all, be alright
You can rest your weary head tonight
You'll be safe and sound once things turn around
And it's all gonna be alright.

Another planned expedition to the Rubicon
Another strand is just enough to keep you hanging on -
- the other hand you've almost made it to the denouement
And it's all gonna be alright

It's all gonna be all, be alright
It's all gonna be OK in spite of the
Stormy seas there's a warm breeze
And the horizon's looking bright
And it's all gonna be all, be alright
You can rest your weary head tonight
You'll be safe and sound once things turn around
And it's all gonna be alright.

These worries are messin' with you, but I'll help you to realise
With each step you're progressin' so stop stressin, it's a blessin' in disguise

And any day and you'll be cashing in your just reward
Then any ray of hope's obscured, deflected, and ignored
But anyway, I'm still convinced that you can rest assured
That it's all gonna be alright.

And it's all gonna be all, be alright
It's all gonna be OK in spite of the
Stormy seas there's a warm breeze
The horizon's looking bright
It's all gonna be all, be alright
You can rest your weary head tonight
You'll be safe and sound once things turn around
And it's all gonna be alright.

And it's all gonna be all, be alright
It's all gonna be OK in spite of the
Stormy seas there's a warm breeze
The horizon's looking bright
It's all gonna be all, be alright
You can rest your weary head tonight
You'll be safe and sound once things turn around
And it's all gonna be alright.
Yeah, now, it's all gonna be alright.
Oh, and it's all gonna be alright.
