Track Name: Rhyddid yw y Freuddwyd
Rhyddid yw y freuddwyd (Freedom is the Dream)

Calon fudur achos sgenaim cawod, (Dirty heart, because I don't have a shower)
A mae'r galon yma yn llawn drygioni, (And this heart is full of mischief)
A dwi'n gweld dim sens cerdded yn syth, (and I see no sense in walking straight)
Er mwyn gwerthu'n enaid a byw mewn nyth. (To sell my soul, and live in a nest)

Chorus
Genai ffrind, genai fwy nac un (X2) (I have a friend, I have more than one)

Da ni'n ysu i fod yn rhydd, (Our urge is to be free)
Brwydro pob un dydd, (We battle everyday)
Mae'r teimlad drost y byd, (This feeling is across the world)
Rhyddid yw y fraeddwyd. (Freedom is the dream)

Anwybyddu y rheolau, (ignore the rules)
Da ni'n llosgi nhw i gyd er mwyn cadw'n gynnes, (We burn them all, to keep warm)
A ella bod rhai ohony nhw yn dweud, (and maybe some of them say..)
"Mae hi di colli ei ffordd" ("She's lost her way")
Ond mae well genai golli fy ffordd, na colli fy mhwrpas (But I'd rather lose my way, than lose my purpose)
Achos os sgen ti'm pwrpas, be di'r pwrpas? (Because if you have no purpose, what's the purpose)
Track Name: Fy Enw i yw Iesu Grist, a Dwi'n Dioddef o Salwch Meddwl
Neshi'm cysgu neithiwr (I didn't sleep last night)
Aros fyny i weld yr haul yn codi, (Staying up to watch the sun rising)
Mae'n haws os gen ti fotel yn dy law di (it's easier with a bottle in your hand)
'Nai rannu'r booze, os gai rannu fy meddwl (I'll share the booze, if you let me share my mind)
Mae popeth yn ormod o hwyl (Everything is too much fun)
A dwisho dawnsio, dawnsio am byth (I want to dance, dance forever)
Dwisho peintio'r strydoedd gyda celf o 'nghalon (I want to paint the streets with art from my heart)
Dwi'n teimlo mor wahanol, (I feel so different)
Dwi'n gwybod mai fi, fi ydi'r un i achub y byd. (I know that I am the one to save the world.)

FY ENW I YW IESU GRIST, A DWI'N DIODDEF O SALWCH MEDDWL X4
(My name is Jesus Christ, and I suffer from mental illness)

Dwi heb gysgu ers tair noson bellach, (I haven't slept for three nights now)
Mae'r strydoedd yn lliwgar a fy fflat yn mess (The streets are colourful and my flat is a mess)
'Di neud ffrindiau newydd, a 'di colli nhw eto (I've made new friends, and lost them again)
Mae gymaint o oriau yn y dydd, pan ti'n penderfyny peidio cysgu, (There are so many hours in the day, when you decide not to go to sleep)
Genai gymaint o syniadau a dwi'n gweld nhw'n dod yn fyw, (I have so many ideas, and I see them come to life)
Mae'r gwydr wedi tori, ydi'n heddiw neu ydi'n fory? (The glass has broken, is it today or tomorrow?)
Dwi 'di colli fy ngoriadau (I have lost my keys)

FY ENW I YW IESU GRIST, A DWI'N DIODDEF O SALWCH MEDDWL X4
(My name is Jesus Christ, and I suffer from mental illness)

Dwi heb gysgu, ers wythnos erbyn hyn,
Mae popeth yn teimlo'n rhyfedd,
Mae'r golau yn mynd ac yn dod,
Dwi'n ofn cau fy llygid, rhag ofn fi weld y hunllef,
Dwi'm isho aros fama, dwi'm isho mynd i nunlle,
Mae'r geiriau yn slo, fy nghalon i'n sydyn,
Dwi'm isho siarad nai ffonio chdi wedyn,
Mae'r heddlu wrth y drws,
Mae'r heddlu wrth y drws.

FY ENW I YW IESU GRIST, A DWI'N DIODDEF O SALWCH MEDDWL X4
(My name is Jesus Christ, and I suffer from mental illness)

O ni rhy isel i allu symyd (I was too low, to be able to move)
O ni rhy uchel i neud unrhyw synwyr (I was too high, to make any sense)

Fy enw i yw Iesu Grist, A Dwi'n dioddef....
(My name is Jesus Christ and I suffer....)
Track Name: Forgetting the Time
i met a boy on the beach,
and he took me to the moon,
and there he sang me a song,
full of wise and beautiful words,
he said, "the present makes so much more sense,
if you forget about the past,
and all your future plans,
and you forget what time it is."

well, i forgot what time it was,
after meeting you. x2.

dragonfly your like a helicopter to me,
i meditate my attention and you set me free,
butterfly you like a dream to him,
he watches you and his imagination begins to..

Fly, fly, fly x2.

do you remember the night,
oh we spent on the hill,
we lay and watch the stars,
and in me, well..

we forgot what time it was,
then the sun came up x2

i had a journey to make,
so i was on my way,
goodbye and i love you,
was too hard to say,
i watched the world wake up,
as the towns flew by,
on the Kona, Hilo,
Monday morning bus-ride,
I'm moving from the sun,
to some probable rain,
but everything's ok,
if the horizon ain't the same.

it seems we forget what time it is,
then our time is done x2.
Track Name: Candle Light
the candles mean nothing to anyone,
once the lights have come back on,
we blew out the candles when the lights came on,
and all of our dreams they were gone.

i quite like just sitting here with you,
no TV so what is there to do?
we talk of things we've never thought before,
then the power's back and those thoughts aren't there no more.

the candles mean nothing to anyone,
once the lights have come back on,
we blew out the candles when the lights came on,
and all of our dreams they were gone.

i quite like just sitting in the dark,
no power so we just sit and talk,
we talk of things we've never thought before,
then the power's back and those thoughts aren't there no more.

the candles mean nothing to anyone,
once the lights have come back on,
we blew out the candles when the lights came on,
and all of our dreams they were gone.
Track Name: Cyfforddus?
tydi rhoi un croes, mewn un bocs, (putting one cross, in one box)
pob pedair mlynedd ddim yn mynd i newid dim. (every four years, isn't going to change anything)
tydi rhoi sticer tafod y ddraig ar dy gar, (putting a sticker of the dragon's tongue on your car)
ddim yn mynd i safio'r iaith, (won't save our language)
tydi rhoi modrwy ar ei byd hi, (putting a ring on her finger)
ddim yn meddwl fydd hi'n caru chdi am byth, (doesn't mean she'll love you forever)
a tydi troi dy gefn (and turning your back)
ddim yn meddwl fod o ddim yn digwydd. (doesn't mean it isn't happening)

defnyddia dy ddychymyg (use your imagination)
i ddychmygu byd chydig gwell (to imagine a better world)
yna defnyddia dy holl egni (then use all of your energy)
i dori allan o'r cell. (to break out of the cell)

gwaith cyfryngi cyfforddus, (comfortable careerist work)
ti neud digon o bres, (you make enough money)
i brynu bwyd masnach teg, (to buy fair trade products)
i lenwi dy frens yn llawn cocaine, (and fill your brains with cocaine)
ond be am dan y ffermwyr yn dde america, (what about the farmers in South America?)
y rhai sy'n tyfu'r coca, (the ones that grow the coca)
mae nhw'n marw, brifo, (they're dying, hurting)
ti'n deud bod bywyd ddim yn deg. (you say, "life isn't fair")

defnyddia dy ddychymyg (use your imagination)
i ddychmygu byd chydig gwell (to imagine a better world)
yna defnyddia dy holl egni (then use all of your energy)
i dori allan o'r cell. (to break out of the cell)

Safiwch S4C, (Save Welsh-language TV)
neu fydd na'm gwaith i chi, (or there will be no work for you)
Safiwch yr iaith Gymraeg, (Save the Welsh-language)
Neu fydda na'm pres hawdd i neud, (or there won't be easy money to make)
Dim trwy'r teledu mae pethau yn byw, (It's not through TV that things live)
Ar y strydoedd mae'r egni, y bobl yw'r gwir, (the energy is on the streets, the people are the truth)
Mae na ffyrdd gwell 'na yfed a rhegi, (there are better ways than drinking and swearing)
I ddal dy dir. (to stand your ground)

defnyddia dy ddychymyg (use your imagination)
i ddychmygu byd chydig gwell (to imagine a better world)
yna defnyddia dy holl egni (then use all of your energy)
i dori allan o'r cell. (to break out of the cell)

does dim amser i feddwl, (there's no time to think)
does dim amser i newid, (there's no time to change)
does dim amser i feddwl am newid, (there's no time to think about changing)
ti di anghofio, pob dim oeddet ti yn goelio,
(you've forgotten, everything you believed in)
cymry cyffrous ta cymry cyfforddus? X4
(Exciting Welsh, or comfortable Welsh?)
wyt ti yn fyw? neu wyt ti di marw? X2
(Are you alive? or have you died?)
neu wyt ti jyst yn gyfforddus?
(or are you just comfortable?)
Track Name: I Could Be Free
i don't know what's most depressing,
working 9 to 5, killing your mind,
or killing your time, on the dole,
but one thing I do know is that we're not happy in our routines,
and i know i'm still young,
i'm probably yet to know everything,
but tell me when did i become too old for dreams,
and sucked into reality?
they tell me, i should go to university,
but have you felt the life, oh the love in the air,
and for this idea, that is a career, i don't really care.

they used to ask me,
when you grow up what do you want to be?
i'd say i just wanna be happy,
or if i'm lucky well i could be free.

it seems like one minute you're young, and the next thing you're old,
one minute you're free, the next you're doing what your told,
now i've got a path, a life i've got to choose,
and the way it seems to me, well i'm only gunna loose,
a year ago i had not a single worry,
now my life it is spent in pursuit of money,
and i just want a simple life, where this shit just don't exist,
but now i've got to choose, and oh my god i'm fucking pissed!

they used to ask me,
when you grow up what do you want to be?
i'd say i just wanna be happy,
or if i'm lucky well i could be free.

I could be free
I could be free
I could be free
I could be free
Track Name: Smash Your TV
i hear talk about a revolution,
i hear we've found the new solution,
yeah i hear talk about a revolution,
they already killed it with their great distractions.

but why would i wanna watch TV?
when i could watch the stars above yeah?
and why would i wanna fall in debt?
when i could fall in love with you.

i find it funny how the rhythm of the rain changes,
how you think i'm strange, i think you're strange,
how they put an ad, on tv and rearrange our lives for us,
well i say smash your tv, it might make things more dangerous.

we're the people of the dream,
we're the people of the party,
we'll never let this go,
it's a part of our hearts yeah,
people of the dream,
people of the party,
we'll never let this go.

i hear talk about a revolution,
i hear we've found the new solution,
yeah i hear talk about a revolution,
they already killed it with their great distractions.

but why would we wanna watch tv?
when we could take to the streets and change things.
and why would we wanna fall in debt?
when i see their products i completely forget.

i find it funny how the rhythm of the rain changes,
how you think i'm strange, i think you're strange,
how they put an ad, on tv and rearrange our lives for us,
well i say smash your tv, it might make things more dangerous.

we're the people of the dream,
we're the people of the party,
we'll never let this go,
it's a part of our hearts yeah,
people of the dream,
people of the party,
we'll never let this go.

i hear talk about a revolution,
i hear we've found the new solution,
yeah i hear talk about a revolution,
they already killed it with their great distractions.
