Lyrics

DOWN TO THE BOTTOM

I’ve been drifting through your street like a stranger

I was out on the edge but now the ledge has gone

Down to the bottom where I belong

Down to the bottom where I belong

I’ve been taking a joyride on the escalator

I was painting the ceiling like a setting sun

Down to the bottom where I belong

Down to the bottom where I belong

I’ve been talking so fast it made me feel like laughing

I was waiting in line, but now my time has come

Down to the bottom where I belong

Down to the bottom where I belong

WAITING FOR THE WAR

These changes pounding in my blood

As I rise above the flood

Like ice cubes melting in the sun

And not upon my tongue

There’s a new game in town

Called waiting for the war

Shadows break their code of trust

They have changed my name to mud

Final answers wave white flags

Because eternity is a drag

There’s a new game around

Called waiting for the war

Dark symbols falling from the sky

Poking holes inside our eyes

We cant ask our leaders why

Because this war is for our minds

But we’ll survive underground

Waiting for the war

DANDELION

If I was a younger man

I could make you understand

If I was a grain of sand

I could slip right through your hands

If I was a dandelion

I could dream all day and night

If I was a butterfly

I could drift right through your mind

If I was a piece of gum

I could live beneath your tongue

If I was a pile of dust

You could come and pick me up

If I was a Jesus freak

I could kneel and kiss your heel

If I was a wood rose seed

I could show you how I feel

THIRD EYE SURGERY

Imaginary spaceship

Metaphysical facelift

Imaginary spaceship

Metaphysical facelift

There must be something you don’t know

There must be something you can’t see

You need a third eye surgery

Psychotropic lollipop

A goody goody gum drop

Psychotropic lollipop

A goody goody gum drop

Tryptamine pipedream

Everyone’s a dopefiend

Tryptamine pipedream

Everyone’s a dope fiend

Real fucking high

Real fucking high

LOVE LIKE A FLOWER

Love your enemy, save more energy

Change reality, third eye surgery

Find your destiny, be all you can be

Turn off your tv, set your brother free

And grow your love like a flower

And love like a flower

Know just what you need, make no apologies

Don’t be a mystery, show just how you feel

And grow your love like a flower

And love like a flower

Love your enemy, save more energy

Find your destiny, set your lover free

NOTHING IS REAL

I was born in a junk yard

And told culture is my friend

That money is my god

And the vultures my government

You’re making me feel like nothing is real

I was raised in a wasteland

Circled in by electric fence

My food grows out of a trash can

And turns plastic in the end

You’re making me feel like nothing is real

I grew up in a treadmill

At the bombshell factory

They tell me war is peace

And TV is reality

But I don’t wanna feel like nothing is real

IT’S JUST A RIDE

Some people spend their lives

Looking for thrills and blowing their minds

Some people are in a race with time

Chasing for gold  and nice things to buy

They can’t understand that it’s just a ride

Some people will bring you down

They’ll spit in your face and push you around

Some people will talk their talk

Wasting their breath

With nothing to say

Some people are just for sale

They’ll do anything as long as they’re paid

Some people know it all ends

They’ll get their kicks before it’s too late

BULLSHIT DETECTOR

So you think you’re the center

But you’re out of time

You’re no longer a person

You’re just a sign

Ain’t no use in trying

Coz I got mine

Bullshit detector

I see through your mind games

And all your bullshit lies

Hang on to your ego

And don’t lose your mind

Ain’t no truth in lying

When I got my bullshit detector

Everything falls to pieces

And you’ve done your part

Let me know if you need me

Straight from the heart

Ain’t no use in lying

Coz I got mine bullshit detector

HONALEE

Who knows what’s going on beyond that curtain drawn?

For what it’s worth it won’t be too very long

Before that change will lift my mind up above the roofs of time

And you can come along if you can make the climb

Honalee – just let it all come down

If you know what I mean

Someone who is not me once spoke of a lucid dream

He said to him it seemed to be so real

He dissolved his boundaries and unleashed realities

And then he found himself to be in the center of the stream

He heard a rumbling sound as an earthquake split the ground

And made a giant gap where his world all came down

He heard children scream and cry as they gave in to the rising tide

Then he watched them drown before his own two eyes

TWO TONGUE TALK

Well, your heart it smells like burning plastic

As you ejaculate atomic waste

I feel like I’m lost in your matrix

Confused by your false flag face

You cannot make me eat your two tongue talk

You cannot make me believe your two tongue talk

Carefully weaving your fabric

Like a spider hooked on the chase

Your conspiracy is a secret fantasy

About the rise of a new master race

You cannot make me eat your two tongue talk

You cannot make me believe your two tongue talk

I’m swimming in your one world blood

With my mind on a higher plane

A photogenic skizophrenic

Caught on surveillance tape

You cannot make me eat your two tongue talk

You cannot make me believe your two tongue talk

War is peace, freedom slavery

Ignorance strength, oblivion a virtue

(swimming in your one world blood)

 

NO SALVATION

Purify your body to elevate your mind

Refine your emotions to liberate your soul

Dispose of your posessions

Dispose of your possesions

Love yourself for who you are

Love yourself for who you are

There aint no saviour who’s gonna set you free

Ain’t no salvation for you or me

Killing your brother in the name of religion

Killing your brother in the name of religion

Turn down the lights

To enhance all your senses

Yeah, turn down the lights

To enhance all your senses

Try to ignore other peoples expectations

Try to ignore other peoples expectations

Redirect your energies

Redirect your energies

You gotta feel the love

You gotta feel the love

 

MY FRIEND

Hello my friend it’s good to see you

I hope you’re hanging in alright

Let me know what you’ve been up to

And what’s happening in your life

Hold on – to everything you own

Soon you’re gonna have to let it all go

Strangely lately I’ve been thinking

About the way you changed your mind

About all the nights we went out drinking

And all the different ways we would get high

Hold on – to everything you know

Soon you’re gonna have to let it all go

I wish I’d known how much you loved her

I wish you’d known how much I cared

Well, I was younger then, but I’ve heard

You finally found yourself somewhere

Hold on to everything you’ve sown

Soon you’re gonna have to let it all go

 

 

TIME OF NO TIME

Population reduction

By chemical seduction

An illusive delusion

Or the final solution

The Georgia Guidestone

A post cultural tombstone

Or just massconfusion

Well, draw your own conclusion

What have you done to our poor planet earth

What have you done to our lives

What have you done to our poor planet earth

What have you done to our lives

This is the time of, no time is right now

This is the time of no time, it’s right now

Standing on the outpost

On the edge of a sealed universe

Waiting for the soft kill

Or the descending god oracle

The raven is coming

End of transmission

The raven is coming

End of transmission

Love is the answer, it’s all that you’ll find

Singing the song of the psyche

Love is the answer it’s all that you’ll find

Singing the song of the psyche

This is the time of – no, time is right now…

This is the time of no time, it’s right now…

 

WILLIAM

Mit liv er på standby

Jeg kokser bare rundt

Og leder efter ord

Der kan lede mig på sporet

Men tiden den står stille

Imens jeg venter på et tegn

En søgen efter sandhed

Eller en pige’s blide kys

Lader min hjerne gå på rov

Nedad spinkle trappeskakter

Og skumle krinkelkroge

Der hvor sindets væv det blomstrer

Jeg tegner stirrende øjne

På et ark af min bevidsthed

Små maskiner med propeller

Der skriger efter kærlighed

Gådefulde portrætter

Af urolige sjæle

Og vingeløse fugle

Som i et glimt af en drøm

Der er mere jeg vil sige

Så tag og vis mig lidt tålmodighed

Og vent på at jeg siger til

Før du siger fra

Der er en brændende labyrint

Et minde om en fortid

En ætsende smerte

Som en meningsløs historie

Jeg håber du forstår

At tiden løber ud

Der er ikke mere at gøre

Alting falder fra hinanden

Og mørket tager os alle

Bare giv mig fire år

Til at skrive enden nær

Bare giv mig lidt afstand

I min håbløse tilstand

Red min verden fra at brænde

Hvis du viser mig din vrede

Så kaster du benzin på bålet

Det er så let for mig at flygte

Når jeg har ryggen op imod muren

Der er mere jeg vil sige

Så tag og lån mig din opmærksomhed

Det er så svært at få det sagt

Men du skal vide at jeg har ret

Jeg ville ønske jeg var maler

Så ku’ jeg bo i en skurvogn

Finde ro for enden af vejen

Et øjeblik og alt er stilhed

Folk der taler om anstændighed

Og lytter himlen ud af ørene

Skal forbigåes i tavshed

Indtil den allersidste afsked

Jeg er så træt af jeres løgne

Venter på at olien tørrer

Teen varmer mine vintre

Sulten sjæl vil gerne sælges

En elektrisk cigaret

Kaster gløder efter månen

De sølvgrå hvirvler bliver til fisk

Og Dylan bliver lidt blå i tonen

Der er mere jeg vil sige

Du må tilgive at jeg væver

Det er kun fordi jeg ved

At verden ender, vinden vender

Et øjeblik og alt er borte

 

MENNESKETVILLING

Violinerne synger deres sidste kor

Mens du ser den anden vej

En Verden er bygget af formløse ord

Der strømmer lige igennem dig

Der findes ingen landkort her

Men du er ikke alene

Selvom du føler dig strandet her

Og det er ved at blive sent

Du hører stemmer hviske dit navn

De byder dig velkommen

Binder gummibånd om dine ben

Du prøver at huske hvorfor du kom

Mennesketvilling, vi har savnet dig

Vi er så glade for at se dig igen

Vi lægger dig forsigtigt ned

Skubber dig tilbage i dit sind

 

 

FORTUNE TELLER

Well, once I had me a woman who kept me on my knees

Her kisses felt like torture but she taught me to say please

Talking about love

A fortune teller told me not to worry about my past

I was standing out in the alley and my heart was beating fast

Talking about love

He said, you can spread it all around you just like flower seeds

Or you can keep it all to yourself like it’s some kind of disease

Talking about love

Well, if you fear it more than you want it then it will turn right into hate

So you better watch your step that’s what the fortune teller said

Talking about love

 

TAKE IT

 If your surroundings are too predictable

And everybody always say just what they should

If too much safety makes you feel uncomfortable

And you can never do what you wish you could

Anything you need

In any way you please, girl –

You’re gonna have to take it

If you feel like you’re unforgetable

And other people think you’re unexceptional

If your love feels unconditional

And everybody treat you so transitional

Anything you want

You can have it all, girl –

But you’re gonna have to take it

If they tell you that you just can’t have it all

And you believe them then you can’t, it’s logical

If you expect to lose your selfcontrol

Taking chances might not seem so unnatural

Anything you need

In anyway you please, girl –

You’re gonna have to take it

 

OPEN UP YOUR HEART

You fill me up with dead end doubt

The games you play they count me out

I wonder what it’s all about

Cause all the words you choose

They don’t have no use

Unless you open up your heart

To see right through my candid lies

You were born with x-ray eyes

It’s in your stars to know what’s right

But all my promises

They are meaningless

If you don’t open up your heart

I would walk a million miles

Following your secret signs

Leading to some piece of mind

I’m not second guessed

But I’ll find no rest

Untill you open up your heart

 

EMILY

Emily – she’s nobody’s girl

Emily – more loved than anyone in this world

No man owns her heart, body, mind or soul

Emily – she lets everybody know

Emily – she likes her music loud

Emily – she always stands out in any crowd

With her eyes closed she dances on her own

Emily – she lets everybody know

Emily – her love is so loose and free

Emily – she likes to hang with guys like me

Someday I’ll want to make her mine and take her home

Emily – she lets everybody know

 

LAUGHING STOCK

I’m not listening to you, I think I’ve heard enough

Cuz you’re so full of yourself, you pretentious little fuck

I don’t wanna be your laughing stock

I’m not gonna be your laughing stock

I’m gonna shut you up

All the lies you tell they never make much sense

But that’s your own private hell of cause and consequence

I don’t wanna be your laughing stock

I’m not gonna be your laughing stock

I’m gonna shut you up

I think you’re full of shit you selfrighteous little bluff

Now when the joke is on you, you don’t seem to be so tough

I don’t wanna be your laughing stock

I’m not gonna be your laughing stock

I’m gonna fuck you up

 

COUNTDOWN TO BREAKDOWN

From the outside my flat looks empty despite the electric glow

Of television static blue light flicker from my windows

Mr. Clock is just hanging around making that awful sound

Countdown to breakdown

There’s a sign hanging on my door, if you enter and you’ll turn to dust

There’s no peace or harmony here, there’s no fucking love

Mr. Clock is just hanging around making that awful sound

Countdown to breakdown

Somebody elses past on my wall in a picture frame I’ve found

My life’s a dead end destiny but I’m stuck in here and now

Mr. Clock is still hanging around, making that awful sound

Countdown to breakdown

 

CHANGES EVERYWHERE

I try, try, try

Every single day I try so hard to find my way

I live to find my fate among the shadows or in the shade

But I’ve been waiting for too long

Every chance they get the demons scream inside my head

I’ve tried to kill them dead but I can’t make myself forget

Because I’ve been waiting for too long

Changes in me and all around me

With or without me, with or me without me

I try, try, try

Everywhere I go I look for answers in the cards

But the rain inside my heart is pulling the strings around my stars

And I’ve been waiting for too long

I try, try, try

 

HOLLOW GROVE

There is a story I’ve been told

On my journey down this very road

About a secret path where no man goes

It’s gonna take me down to Hollow Grove

Through a gate of trees and into an unknown

Where the stars they seem to fall like snow

And the moonlight paints the forest gold

I wanna take you down to Hollow Grove

We could escape into a dream

And become fantastic memories

Let your childhood fantasies unfold

And let me take you down to Hollow Grove

Let’s go find some magic stones

And create a circle all our own

With not a darkness in our souls

We can make it down to Hollow Grove

 

NO MAS

Now girl, I used to think you looked like the cover of a magazine

But I found out you’re just a control freak taking all your selfhatred out on me

Now I’m making my way, I don’t need your love no more

Yeah I’m moving on, I don’t need your love more

I gotta get away, I don’t need your love no more

No mas, no mas!

Girl,  I think your definition of love is downright sick

Cuz you’re a borderline skizophrenic and a closet anorectic bitch

Now I’m making my way, I don’t need your love no more

Yeah, I’m moving on, I don’t need your love more

I gotta get away, I don’t need your love no more

No mas, no mas!

Girl, the only one you ever really loved is yourself

So go on now and cry cry cry like a little child if you think it helps

I’ll be making my way – I don’t need your love no more

I can’t take it anymore girl, I don’t need your love no more

I’m getting outta here, I don’t need your love no more

No mas, no mas!

 

MIKITA

Someone said they saw you with another guy in town

I said don’t worry about it but it really brought me down

There’s no cure or medication

For the longing in my heart

Baby, you and I have been too long apart

I meet a lot of girls, babe and they all give me something new

But my life feels like a prison until I make it home to you

There’s no cure or medication

For the longing in my heart

Baby, you and I have been too long apart

 

SCORPIO

She’s a scorpio – her chestnut eyes grow darker in the night

She’s a scorpio – her tail end stings and her black pussy bites

She’s a scorpio – that’s her sign

She’s a scorpio – to me she feels just right

She’s a scorpio – her amazon kiss it feels  just like a fire

She’s a scorpio – her emerald skin it preaches when she rides

Scorpio is rising in my blood

I’m telling you, that girl she just can’t get enough

She’s a scorpio – her spiderfingers make me feel like crying

She’s a scorpio – she blows my soul and stops my thoughts from dying

She’s a scorpio – that’s her sign

She’s a scorpio – to me she feels just right

Scorpio is rising in my blood

I’m telling you, that girl she just can’t get enough

 

SECRET  OF THE TWISTED FLOWER

Here’s another thought – everything you think you know your fantasies all wrapped in plastic

Here’s another thought- despite the lies that you’ve been told  your reality is so elastic

Now you know, nobody to love but everyone

now you know, nobody to love but everyone

Here’s another thought – everything you say you feel is only temporary

Here’s another thought – your static faith ideal belief is just imaginary

Now you know, nobody to love but everyone

now you know, nobody to love but everyone

Here’s another thought – everything you eat is wrong and no visions pierce your primal mind

Here’s another thought – that you’ll be lost before too long your panic rises like a tide

Now you know, nobody to love but everyone

now you know, nobody to love but everyone

 

THE RIVER

A loop of stars outside my window

transmission from earth’s satellites

my velvet curtains flash in dayglo

the river flows within my mind

A thousand flowerstems have gathered

behind the lids of both my eyes

like a sacred seed of soul and matter

the river flows within my mind

The ceiling swirls a cyrcled rainbow

unfolding spiral patterned skies

the room it lingers in the afterglow

the river flows within my mind

As I turn my head in wonder

I feel the breath of butterflies

just like the sound of distant thunder

the river flows within my mind

I seep through cracks between the shadows

uncover worlds that burst with life

angelic whores with wings and halos

the river flows within my mind

All the ancient temples built on quicksand

to praise the holy gods of light

who guard the threshold of a dreamland

the river flows within my mind

A travelling caravan of daydreams

settled on the edge of time

like the dust that shimmers around a moonbeam

the river flows within my mind

The neon city lights are breaking

the last descendant of our tribe

a new dawn awaits my overtaking

the river flows within my mind

 

SOMEONE TO LOVE

I think I’ve seen your face before somewhere

I hope I’m gonna see it some more around here

You gimme good vibrations

It feels like a sensation

Could it be you need someone to love?

If you’re lost in the circles of your mind

And if you sometimes feel there should be more to life

Searching for salvation

Getting only damnation

Could it be you need someone to love?

If you feel like you’re running out of time

Baby, I’d be yours if only you’d be mine

If you long for elevation

Let’s find a higher foundation

Could it be you need someone to love?

Every time you get up they’re gonna knock you down

You can’t make it stop, you ought to know by now

That life is no illusion

Just a state of confusion

Could it be you need someone to love?

 

I’M GONNA MAKE YOU MINE

You can ask me if I’ve taken

Some chances in my time

While my words might be mistaken

The truth does serve me right

And I’m gonna make you mine

You can ask any fortune teller

To read between the lines

You’re my shadow Cinderella

And it’s written in your eyes

I’m gonna make you mine

You can ask the stones I’ve gathered

If they could ever tell a lie

And if anything ever mattered

It’s a love that just don’t die

And I’m gonna make you mine

 

LET YOURSELF GO

Drifting through your everchanging dreamplane

Stuck in the mud as your tears they fall like rain

Make yourself a believer

make yourself a receiver

Yeah – you know

You gotta let yourself go

Shifting into the slipstream of the fast lane

Stuck in the mud as it all comes back again

Slipping into the looking glass of your mind’s eye

Stuck in the mud as you feel like you’re gonna die

 

TWILIGHT PRINCESS

She changes her face almost daily

Keeping her name a second guess

Voicing her presence here lately

A twilight princess

She lives in a room with no mirrors

Selling her soul for more or less

Lost in the turmoil of a fever

A twilight princess

She dances the dark away wildly

Treading a mile above the mess

So perfectly twisted and unlikely

A twilight princess

 

LILITH

Face your horizon

And watch it all dissolve

Change your tomorrow

And let your now evolve

Don’t feed the demons

You have buried in your past

Just know your future freedom

Is coming down so fast

Lilith

All mistakes forgiven

All wrongs turned into rights

Free from all the darkness

That cluttered up your mind

Just teach yourself to listen

To the promises you make

And know that if you keep them

Your love don’t fade away

Lilith

Sweep yesterdays shadows

Like dark clouds from your sight

Clear away the tombstones

You’ve drawn inside your eyes

Gone but not forgotten

You can run, but you can’t hide

Release yourself from your longing

And walk into the light

Lilith

 

IN YOUR LIFE

Feel the changes on your mind

See the sun on the rise

Did you ever feel so good before in your life?

Clouds unfolding in the sky

Right before your eyes

Did you ever feel so good before in your life?

Can’t you hear that whisper in the wind?

Can’t you see your destiny is mine?

Don’t you know I’d give you anything?

If only you would let me live in your life

A love that makes you feel so high

Flowing through you tonight

Did you ever feel so good before in your life?

 

CHASING RAINBOWS

You can’t make me feel any smaller

So why do you try?

You can’t bring me down any longer

You can’t make me cry

There’s a war going on

And there’s a riot inside my mind

I’ve seen the writing on the wall

I’m gonna set this town on fire

Because you make me feel like I don’t belong

And I ain’t done you no wrong

Just chasing rainbows

The streets are paved with cinder

All over this town

All the bricks have been picked from the ground

And thrown all around

You can’t make me change my ways

It’s like I’ve already died

You can’t keep holding me down

Or make me change my mind

Well, this city has made me a stranger

With no place to go

And I feel like a crime and a danger

Acting on my own

There’s a war going on

And there’s a riot inside my mind

I’ve seen the writing on the wall

I’m gonna set your world on fire

 

NO MORE DARKNESS

I don’t believe a word you’re saying

And I don’t get those games you’re playing

I really wish you could tell me why

You keep me so unsatisfied

I don’t need no more darkness baby

When I get that silent treatment

It makes me feel like you’re you’re gonna leave me

Why do you keep me hanging on?

Why are you stringing me along?

I don’t need no more darkness baby

 

DARK TWIN

All of our days they just go by

Waiting for a chance to get love right

But all of our hearts are filled with lies

The truth is love it changes like the tide

All of the promise in your eyes

The trail of broken dreams you’ve left behind

All of our hearts are filled with lies

The truth is love is dared or it’s denied

Clouds are drifting through my mind

But everywhere I look I see your smile

I’m a tortured soul who keeps on dying

Drowning in that lake of tears I’m crying

All of our lives we burn in strife

Fighting for a chance to get love right

But all of our hearts are filled with lies

The truth is love it lives, it never dies

 

RENEGADE SOUL

Can’t you hear the raven closing in?

Can’t you hear it calling time and again?

The end is getting nearer

Could it be any clearer?

Every man for himself

You’re on your own – renegade soul

Elektra speaks her mind to everyone

She draws a golden circle around the sun

When tomorrows hurricanes have flown

You can thank your lucky stars that you’ve known

 

MADNESS OF YOUR OWN MAKING

It’s nature’s way

There’s a point of no return

For all of the love in your heart you’ve forsaken

It’s nature’s way

There’s a lesson you should learn

While all of the life in your blood is still aching

And I – I think you will see to your own undertaking

By all of the madness of your own making

It’s nature’s way

Of letting you know

There once was a truth but you stopped believing

It’s nature’s way

Of letting you go

You once had a use but you stopped receiving

 

MICRODOT

You used to feel like a grain of sand

On the winds of time

A dusty pile of memories

Inside your fragile mind

This is what you’ve been waiting for

All your sorry life

You’ve found the center of the universe

Right behind your eyes

And all in you has changed

You used to feel like a microdot

The sum of all your fears

You were so concerned with what you were not

But now your mind is clear

And all in you is change

You used to feel like a falling leaf

A candle burning out

You could have reached for eternity

But at least you’ve come to now

And all in you has changed

You used to feel like a setting sun

Like a burnt out fire

Now when it seems gthat your time has come

You couldn’t get much higher

And all in you is change

 

BORDERLINE

They say the world is getting smaller

But your garden gates are growing taller

You and all your self-fulfilling prophecies of war are willing

All your hatred and how you’ve played it

And all the time you’ve just plain wasted

Selling out your decency

The truth it hurts but will it set you free?

We’re headed for the third world war and no one’s asking what it’s for

Will the blood for money machinery be the end of all humanity?

More surveillance, secret camera, triggers all my paranoia

Alienation, condemnation, media manipulation

Borderline is getting nearer, apocalyptic vision clearer

It’s by no means a judgement daydream

Things are never just what they seem

Fluctuation has no end but this time it just all makes sense

Your loss of freedom will make you see

Or put an end to all your misery

We’re headed for the borderline

You’ve really gone too far this time

We’re headed for the borderline

You’ve really gone too far this time

 

HOBBITTENS DRØM

Hvis du tror at lykken er til salg

Hvis du tror at skæbnen er et valg

Så kom og lad dig svømme hen

Og lad mig være din bedste ven

På vand brød og te

Kærlighed og lsd

Hvis du tror mine øjne kun kan se

Hvis du tror at min stemme kun kan le

Så tag og lyt til mig igen

Alting er så frit og nemt

På vand brød og te

Kærlighed og lsd

Hvis du tror at døden er en dom

Hvis du tror at livet er en drøm

Vågn op og se på dagens lys

Kan du mærke solens kys

Og vand brød og te

Kærlighed og lsd

 

WHAT YA GONNA DO?

Don’t you think it’s about time you made up your doubting mind?

Will you face the facts or fight?

What ya gonna do?

What ya gonna do when you find that the next in line is you?

Baby, it’s you

It’s the point of no return, do you think you’ll ever learn?

Play with fire and you’ll get burned

What ya gonna do?

What ya gonna do when you find that the next in line is you?

Baby, it’s you

 

FOUND MY WAY OUT

There’s a storm a coming

A hard rain’s a gonna fall

I feel it in my fingers

I see the writing on the wall

Got nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

I just wasn’t made for these times

There’s an earthquake rumbling

I feel it under my feet

I swear my eyes have seen the blood

Flowing down the street

Got nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

I just wasn’t made for these times

I’m telling you baby

Let there be no doubt

That if you never see my again

Then you’ll know I’ve found my way out

Tell me when it’s over

Tell me when the storm has passed

The blood is up to my knees now baby

And the tide is rising fast

Got nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

I just wasn’t made for these times

 

KITTY GALORE

Baby, when you shake your hips I really dig it

I bet those lollipop lips they know just how to lick it

I need a little loving, baby

So come on and give me some yeah

You know that I need you honey

You can tell by the look in my eyes

I’d give you all of my money

If I had any baby – would you make me feel right?

When you move that ass my eyes are moving with it

I’d like to take it for a ride but I can’t afford the ticket

I need a little loving, baby

So come on and give me some

 

NO OTHER GIRL

I should have known right from the start

A girl like you could only break my heart

I should have known when you were untrue

But there was nothing I could do

When we were through

That’s when I knew

There’s no other girl like you

Well, you know I’ve tried so many times

To erase it from my mind

I should have known you would make me blue

But now there’s nothing I can do

My heart’s been broken for so long

But there ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone
My soul’s been owned and done wrong

But there ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone

I should have known it was all a game

Your kind of love drives a man insane

I should have known you would make me blue

But now there’s nothing I can do

 

LIGHTS ARE CHANGING

Too many people don’t know how to set free

They’re spending all their lives buying all kinds of shit they don’t need

If you know what I mean

But the lights are changing

Now is the time

There is not a doubt in my mind

Knowing that you’re mine…

Every time I turn on my TV

There’s a man talking about the world of the free

But I don’t think he means you and me

You and me, we see things so differently

Baby, you and me, we see things so differently

If you know what I mean

 

GROWING YOUNGER

Do you know what’s happening?

It’s like a supernova in your mind

Well, the change is in you

It’s like a flashing lantern in your eyes

Don’t you worry, it’s alright

Don’t be sorry, you’ll do fine

You’re growing younger all the time

Well, it ain’t no secret

It’s like a guiding lighthouse in the dark

Everybody knows it

It’s like a twisted flower in your heart

Your heart is beating, it’s alright

Keep on breathing, it’s alright…

 

ALL OVER NOW

People try to push me and put me down

I can’t ever find out what it’s all about

They call me a loser, a freak and a clown

Had it up to here, man – but it’s all over now

It used to feel right with you hanging around

But I heard the way you’re talking about me all over town

If you can’t get with it, get off of my cloud

Two’s a crowd, babe – it’s all over now

You ain’t gonna tell me how to live no more

It’s all over now, it’s all over now

You ain’t got the hold on me you had before

It’s all over now, it’s all over now yeah

Sometimes I wish there was an easy way out

I’d be gone by tomorrow without a doubt

If you can’t live with me, you can do without

Take a look around, babe – it’s all over now

 

CHEMICAL BUZZ

Don’t try to tell me what’s not right

That kind of thing is just a state of mind

Don’t talk to me about natural highs

I’m a one track mind kind of guy

Chemical buzz

Don’t try to tell me what’s not real

I’ve seen it all and it’s no big deal

This kind of kick doesn’t lose its appeal

So let me tell you how it makes me feel

Chemical buzz

Don’t try to tell me what’s not true

I ain’t gonna do what you want me to do

This world is full of people just like you

You play the game that you were born to lose

Chemical buzz

 

CHRISTINE

There’s something about the way you move

In your denim dress and your leather boots

You’re like a habit I just can’t kick

I’m flipping candy till it makes me sick

Christine – you’re the sweetest girl I’ve ever seen

There’s something about the way you smile

With your electric cool and your cocaine eyes

You’re like a habit I just can’t kick

I’m flipping candy till it makes me sick

Christine – you’re the sweetest girl I’ve ever seen

 

DO RIGHT

So you say you wanna live like there’s no tomorrow

So you say you’re getting rid of all the pain and sorrow

But if you don’t free your mind

You might as well be doing time

It’s your life, do what you want and you’re gonna do right

So you say you got soul, but you just can’t fake it

That a heart is a heart and that I just can’t break it

You can talk all you want for a million reasons

Blame your mom and your dad and the changing seasons

 

BORN TO LOSE

Prophets talk about the end of the world

They say it’s gonna be soon

But every end that’s gonna get you down babe

Is gonna get me down too

We were born to lose

When I was a kid I thought the world looked so strange

From my point of view

I never thought there was anybody like me

But now I know it ain’t true

We were born to lose

And some of us were born to play the blues

I met a girl that I could love all my life

She makes me feel so good

I try to tell her all the things that make her smile

To make her feel good too

But we were born to lose

We’re all gonna die now

 

ROSES

So now you’re asking who stole your freedom

When the truth is you gave it away

You’ve been selling yourself short

And now you’re dragging your ball and chain

You’re building your own cage

Laying roses on your own grave

You can tell your girlfriend to snuff it

And then convince yourself how you’ve changed

Well, it’s just another nail in your coffin

If you think it’s all just a game

You can make your way to the window

See what tomorrow holds in store

But it’s just like chasing your shadow

If you think it’s not your own fault

 

NOBODY KNOWS

Don’t you know, there’s no place I can go

It’s like I’m stuck on a merry-go-round

Can’t you see what it’s doing to me?

It’s like the whole thing is getting me down

Around and around it goes

How to make it stop, nobody knows

Grains of sand, cigarette in my hand

Time is running, but I’ve run out of time

No way out, better deal with the doubtful revolution

Blowing my mind

Rising sun, my TV is turned on

Looks like I’m in for another spin

Turned out right, better turn out the lights

But all this turning is doing me in

 

LOVE COMES DOWN

Through the woods of nowhere fast

Shattered dreams and broken glass

The seeker said your die is cast today

Out of the circle that clouds your mind

Through the shadows and into light

Hear those sweeping voices cry your name

Love comes down

And lets you know the truth

Love comes down on you

Into the mindfields of your own past

Your lotus wheel it spins so fast

The seeker said your love will last in vain

 

HONEYDRIPPER

I’ve gotta find myself a honeydripper

I’ve gotta get myself some jelly roll

I’m gotta find myself a fingerlicker

I’ve gotta get myself a mojo bone

Honeydripper – won’t you set me free?

Honeydripper – won’t you let me be your honeybee?

I’ve gotta get myself some satisfaction

I’ve gotta get myself some energy

Man is a sucker for fuck action

I’ve gotta find myself some gasoline

 

DISCONNECTED

You know, people try to tell me that I’m no good

Because I do what I want and not what I should

It’s not my fault that I don’t belong

It’s the world around me that’s got it all wrong now

Well, I got a reputation as an angry young man

Because I never fit into the master plan

It’s not my problem if you can’t understand

I’m disconnected and I don’t give a damn now

Well, from my point of view all your wrongs are right

Because you build you truth on a pack of lies

A worthless recluse with a one-track mind

Or just a burning soul way ahead of my time now

 

POURING WATER 

What’s that look in your eyes, baby?

Don’t you know that a man is all I am?

Can’t you see I’m trying, baby?

I do the best I can

You’re pouring water on a drowning man

You’ve got me down on my knees baby

Trying to take your hand

Well. I’m begging you please

Why can’t you understand?

You’re pouring water on a drowning man

HEY! You got a lock on my heart and the key to my soul

Set me free and I’ll never let you go

There’s just one thing I’ve gotta let you know

You’re bringing me down, you’re hurting me so….

What are you trying to prove baby?

Why can’t you understand?

Who are you trying to fool, baby?

I do the best I can

 

HIPPIE CHICK 

Here she comes waving her golden hair

She’s got her head in the clouds

Her trip lasted two thousand years

And her feet they still don’t touch the ground

Here she comes, just nineteen or twentyone

She wears a smile on her face

Her eyes are brighter than the sun

A million light years away

Take this fuzzy halo, baby

And wear it like a crown

The earth beneath your feet is shaking

Going round and round

Why don’t you come on down?

 

EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT 

How many times did you feel like you were wrong when you were right?

How many times did you feel like you were being fed a lie?

How many times did you feel like you can make it if you try?

Go on try – everything’s gonna be alright

How many times did you feel that you were down when you were getting high?

How many times did you feel like you were gone and outta sight?

How many times did you feel like you had to live before you die?

That’s life – everything’s gonna be alright

How many times did you feel like you were always sad and blue?

How many times did you feel like somebody tells you what to do?

How many times did you feel like you had nothing left to loose?

But that ain’t true – everything’s gonna be alright

 

CARRIE 

It feels like I am counting

To reach a million years

Awaiting every second

Just the moment it appears

My life is but a daydream

A blue star diamond tear

Imagining a moonbeam

And wishing you were here

Oh, Carrie – why did you go?

Oh, Carrie – I miss you so

Oh, Carrie, I can’t make it on my own

I can’t go on

Once in a dream I saw you

Collecting butterflies

I secretly adored you

Wishing you were mine

 

MONEY FOR SOUL 

Hey little girl is your heart made of steel?

You know how to suck dick but you don’t know how to feel

You’ve got pearls from your head to your heels

But the sparks in your eyes they look so unreal…

Oh, no, no, no – you can’t trade your money for soul

Hey mister phoney suit and tie

With your high fashion looks and your plastic smile

Did you think you could run and hide?

Then pay me back some other time

Oh, no, no, no – you can’t trade your money for soul…

Hey little girl is your heart made of stone?

I know your daddy paid for every little thing you own

You would die for all your silver and gold

While your love for me is so hard and cold

No, no, no, no – you can’t trade your money for soul

 

NEVER COMING BACK 

Well, you talk me down in front of my friends

And you push me around again and again

I made up my mind girl, this is the end

I’m walking out that door

I ain’t never coming back no more.

Well, you set me up and try to blow my cool

Mess around behind my back like I’m some kind of fool

Well, I made up my mind, got news for you

I’m walking out that door

I ain’t never coming back no more.

Well, you can stop all your crying, they’re just crocodile tears

I found my bags and I’ve packed my gear

I made up my mind, I’m getting out of here

I’m walking out that door

I ain’t never coming back no more.

 

 

YOU OWN IT 

Well, it ain’t no secret

Everybody knows how I feel

It ain’t no secret

Everybody knows my love is real

Well, you can take anything you want from me

Because you really own it

Well, you can take anything you want from me

Because you really own it, baby!

I always had a hungry heart

And a thirsty soul

I always had a hungry heart

And a thirsty soul now

Well, it’s about time

It’s about time we got together

Yeah, you and I –

Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta!

Because you really own it

Gotta, gotta!

Because you really own it baby

 

YOU BETTER RUN 

You better watch out

Because there’s a deeper truth

You better watch out

Karma’s gonna get to you

I guess you better run, run, run, run

And don’t look back

Yes, you better run, run, run. Run

And wipe out your tracks

You better watch out

Don’t talk to anybody else

You better watch out

Start thinking about yourself

You better watch out

Your paranoia meter is in the red

You better watch out

You should have listened once to what I said

 

ROLLERCOASTER 

Won’t you take me for a ride

Because I feel like getting high

You can’t beat that 4/4 time

Because it makes me feel alright

Won’t you make it slip and slide

Because I feel like getting high

You can’t beat that 4/4 time

Because it makes me feel alright

 

VOLCANO 

Suck on my nipples baby

Make me feel like I’m gonna explode

My body is trembling

And I’m feeling like I’m gonna burst and blow

I’m ready to go

I’m ready to go

Well, you sure turn me on

I feel like a volcano

Let me touch you baby

Send a chill down your spine

I said you’ve gotta let me touch you baby

I’ve gotta make you mine, all mine

Come and get some more

Come and get some more

 

NO WAY OUT

Ain’t no sense in trying baby

You know where it’s at

Ain’t no sense in crying baby

Makes you feel to bad

No, girl you’re on your own

No way out

Got no need for reasons baby

It’s all over now

There’s a change of seasons baby

Coming anyhow

I ain’t got nowhere to run to baby

I ain’t got nowhere to hide

I’m running around in circles baby

I’m running out of time

 

 

BABY BLOWS

Tell me if you can feel it

The soft chill down your spine

The sweet taste on your tongue baby

Not so easily defined

Baby Woodrose blows your mind

Baby Woodrose blows your mind

Tell me if you can see it

The spiral ceilings so out of sight

And the walls are just reflections

Of your own mind’s design

 

WHAT A BURN

You get a lip because they think they know

What’s best for you and I baby

They’re so afraid of the truth

They’re gonna try to sell you one big pack of lies, baby

You’ve had your turn

And now it’s mine, what a burn

You get a feeling that you’re someone

Deep inside your soul, buddy

Then you get put down by everybody else

Because they think you’re a nobody

You get a buzz from the city fuzz

Because you’re on the wrong kind of dope, man

You get the eye from the girls on the side

Because you’re playing in a rock’n’roll band

 

 

CAUGHT IN A WHIRL

Did you think your life would turn and change, girl

Or did you think it just could stay the same, girl

Did you find you just got caught in a whirl?

Did you think you’d get so carried away, girl

Now do you wanna leave or do you wanna stay, girl

Did you find you just got caught in a whirl?

Did you think you’d get a second chance, girl

Or did lift your mind into the dance, girl

Did you find you just got caught in a whirl?

 

 

PANDORA

Don’t you ever feel like you wanna

But you just can’t let it go now

Don’t you wanna take a look inside?

Don’t you wanna know now?

Don’t you feel like letting yourself go, Pandora?

Go, go Pandora!

Don’t you feel like letting your mind blow, Pandora?

You know, everybody’s talking

They’re saying you’ve got a brand new man

You get kicks from your fix

You get washed in the blood of the lamb

 

 

 

SPINNING WHEELS OF FIRE

Won’t you try to understand?

The situation’s getting out of hand

Because every time I close my eyes

All I see is spinning wheels of fire

Once I tried to open it up

Pandora’s box, a dream of talking clock

Once I tried to keep them shut

I wanna look but I’d really rather not

 

LIVING A DREAM

Take your time to define your reality

Close your eyes and slip into the stream

Can’t you see, Tambourine?

You’re living a dream

Watch the colours unfold on your tapestry

Red and blue, orange, yellow, green

Your gatefold world is splitting in the seams

So close your eyes and slip into the stream

 

FLAMINICA

Have you seen her hair?

It’s like a river of air about to overrun

Have you seen her eyes?

The way they sparkle and shine

In the glint of the sun

Have you heard her talk?

Have you seen the way she walks?

Have you seen her face?

It’s soft as feathers and lace

And hard as leather and pain

Do you know her name?

It’s in a constant change

And never quite the same

Have you seen her smile?

You know she makes me feel alright

Have you seen her lips?

They taste so sweet when they kiss

There is no doubt in my mind

Have you felt her touch?

It’s like it burns too much

But you know it hurts so fine

Have you seen her eyes?

They make me feel like I’m on fire

I can’t stand her love

Makes me feel like I’m burning up

 

MAYA

Well, I’ve been watching your reflection

In the dark and shattered glass

I’ve been searching for dimension

In the glimpses of your past

The times you’ve had

They won’t come back

But still you can’t be sad

Don’t you know I love you so?

Now you’re so close to perfection

But you know it cannot last

Well, you’ve sure got my attention

Through the dark and shattered glass

 

GET WHAT YOU GIVE

No time to lose

It’s not too late and it’s not too soon

If you wanna live

Do you get what you give?

Do you get what you give?

Right here, right now, everybody

Right here, right now, everybody gotta live

If you wanna live

No time to lose

If you wanna live

It’s not too late and it’s not too soon

Do you feel it, feel it, feel it?

Do you feel it, feel it, feel it?

 

KARA LYNN

Kara Lynn, why don’t you

Turn around and walk right out on him?

You know it’s not too late, Kara Lynn

Kara Lynn, why don’t you

Pack your stuff and run away from him?

Because you can’t stay the same

But you’ve still got time to change, Kara Lynn

Kara Lynn, why don’t you

Turn around and walk right out on him?

Your love can still be saved, Kara Lynn

You’ve still got time to start all over again

Kara Lynn, don’t think twice, not this time

Kara Lynn, don’t look back, you’re gonna be just fine

Yeah, you’re gonna be alright now baby

But you better hide your tears and all your sorrow

There is no other way

You know what’s here today can be gone tomorrow

 

RIGHT TO GET HIGH

Hey, Mister Man

You’ve got your head in a jam

Now don’t get me wrong

But what kind of dope are you on?

That crazy look in your eyes

I’m sure you blew your mind

It’s gonna be alright, man

It’s gonna be alright

Because you’ve got a right to get high

Hey Mister Man

Just get me back in the van

We gotta drive all night

One hell of a ride

Six hundred miles

That’s a ten hour drive

So get me back on time

To do the twentyfives

 

 

MIND AND SOUL

She knows she reads your eyes

Like signs in stone

She knows she leaves herself

Inside you when she goes

Mind and soul

She grows, but she never really dies

She just unfolds

She flows, you never can be sure she’s yours alone

Mind and soul

She’s as innocent as a little girl

And so experienced that

She could tell all the world

She knows, a look into her eyes

And then you’re home

She’s old, but she’s younger

Every time you see her go

Mind and soul

 

NOBODY SPOIL MY FUN

Baby, what are you gonna do

When the time has come for you to choose?

Baby what are you gonna do

When you find you’re the one who’s gonna lose?

Well, the world is full of people like you

Trying to bring me down

If you’re not gonna let me have my kicks

Just quit your hanging around

Nobody spoil my fun

The things I do you would never try

What I get for free you’ve gotta buy

When I shoot, lord knows I never miss

When I make love to you baby

You just can’t resist

Nobody spoil my fun
