about

"Peace Of Mind" comes from the album "Dodge City Tombstone" and has been a regular part of The Quagaars' live set since around 2004.

Not much is known about "Quest". It's an instrumental that the band recorded at some point and almost completely forgot about until Prime8 was digging through the vaults. It was based around some ideas that Checkers brought into the studio one day and built up from there.

"Morning In Space" is an instrumental from the demo album "Release Your Inner Gorilla (Zero Gravity Edition)". As with "Quagaarian Space Trip" and "The Storm Arrives", it is just Prime8 with a guitar and an effects unit.

"Got Away With It All (Unused Backing Track)" is an earlier version of the song that closes "Dodge City Tombstone". At that point, the lyrics had not yet been written and it had the working title of "Victory". This version was left unfinished when the band decided to try a different, stripped back arrangement.

Track Name: Peace Of Mind
There's a revolution in the air,
Rising up from everywhere,
There's nothing you can do,
They'll overpower you,
Civilization will lie in the dust,
Covered by clouds of broken trust,
Fed up with being 2nd class,
Fed up with walking on broken glass,
There's a revolution in the air,
Rising up from everywhere,
There's nothing you can do,
They'll overpower you,

It doesn't work the way it used to,
It doesn't work the way it should,
It doesn't work the way it used to,
It doesn't work the way it should,
Trying to find their own Peace Of Mind,
Looking for their own Peace Of Mind,
It doesn't work the way it used to,
It doesn't work the way it should,
It doesn't work the way it used to,
It doesn't work the way it should,
Trying to find their own Peace Of Mind,
Looking for their own Peace Of Mind,

The revolution will go on and on,
Till all the hatred in the world is gone,
Till everybody's treated equally,
Regardless of their history,
There's a revolution in the sky,
There's a revolution in your eye,
There's a revolution in the air,
Rising up from everywhere,
There's nothing you can do,
They'll overpower you,
We'll overpower you,
They'll overpower you,
We'll overpower you,
What are you going to do,
When we overpower you,
Power, power, power,
Power, power, power.
