And Then...
Let's take a map of the world Tear it into pieces All of the boys and the girls Will see how easy it is To put it all down and start again From the top to the bottom and then I'll have faith, or I prefer To think that things couldn't turn out worse All that we need at the start's Universal revolution (that's all) And if we trust in our hearts We'll find the solutions To put it all down and start again... Took a plane across the world Got in a car And when I reached my destination I hadn't gone far Let's take the whole of the world The mountains and the sand Let all the boys and the girls Shape it in their hands To put it all down and start again...

Any Second Now (voices)
She remembered all the shadows And the doubts The same film Vivid pictures like a wall That's standing empty And the night so still Such a small affair, a relapse Someone closing like a night club door Here again and when you speak I watch you move away and seem so sure She is hoping to forget And the moment almost sleeps away When the colours move apart And I wonder if you want to stay And I need to change you Like the words I'm reading Don't you understand This is warning And the message I remember As you touch my hand

A Photograph Of You
What good is a photograph of you? Every time I look at it It makes me feel blue! What use is a souvenir Of something we once had When all it ever does is Make me feel bad! I wish I could tear it up But then again I haven't the guts! I wish I could throw it on the fire I wish I could But to say I would I'd be a liar! What good is a color print Of a little baby doll? When just one little glance Is enough to make me feel dull! I hoped I would misplace it But then I take such good care of it I wish it would disappear I say I wish But then I relish It being here! Feel blue

A Question Of Lust
Fragile Like a baby in your arms Be gentle with me I'd never willingly Do you harm Apologies Are all you seem to get from me But just like a child You make me smile When you care for me And you know... It's a question of lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crumble to dust It is all of these things and more That keep us together Independence Is still important for us though (we realise) It's easy to make The stupid mistake Of letting go (do you know what I mean) My weaknesses You know each and every one (it frightens me) But I need to drink More than you seem to think Before I'm anyone's And you know... It's a question of lust... Kiss me goodbye When I'm on my own But you know that I'd Rather be home It's a question of lust...

A Question Of Time
I've got to get to you first Before they do It's just a question of time Before they lay their hands on you And make you just like the rest I've got to get to you first It's just a question of time Well now you're only fifteen And you look good I'll take you under my wing Somebody should They've persuasive ways And you'll believe what they say It's just a question of time It's running out for you It won't be long until you'll do Exactly what they want you to I can see them now Hanging around To mess you up To strip you down And have their fun With my little one It's just a question of time... Sometimes I don't blame them For wanting you You look good And they need something to do Until I look at you And then I condemn them I know my kind What goes on in our minds It's just a question of time It should be better It's just a question of time It should be better with you It's just a question of time

Barrel Of A Gun
Do you mean this horny creep Set upon weary feet Who looks in need of sleep That doesn't come This twisted, tortured mess This bed of sinfulness Who's longing for some rest And feeling numb What do you expect of me What is it you want Whatever you've planned for me I'm not the one A vicious appetite Visits me each night And won't be satisfied Won't be denied An unbearable pain A beating in my brain That leaves the mark of cain Right here inside What am I supposed to do When everything that I've done Is leading me to conclude I'm not the one Whatever I've done I've been staring down the barrel of a gun Is there something you need from me Are you having your fun I never agreed to be Your holy one Whatever I've done I've been staring down the barrel of a gun

Behind The Wheel
My little girl Drive anywhere Do what you want I don't care Tonight I'm in the hands of fate I hand myself Over on a plate Now Oh little girl There are times when I feel I'd rather not be The one behind the wheel Come Pull my strings Watch me move I do anything Please Sweet little girl I prefer You behind the wheel And me the passenger Drive I'm yours to keep Do what you want I'm going cheap Tonight You're behind the wheel, tonight

Black Celebration
Let's have a black celebration Black celebration Tonight To celebrate the fact That we've seen the back Of another black day I look to you How you carry on When all hope is gone Can't you see Your optimistic eyes Seem like paradise To someone like me I want to take you In my arms Forgetting all I couldn't do today Black celebration Black celebration Tonight To celebrate the fact... I look to you And your strong belief Me, I want relief Tonight Consolation I want so much Want to feel your touch Tonight Take me in your arms Forgetting all you couldn't do today Black celebration Black celebration I'll drink to that Black celebration Tonight

Blasphemous Rumours
Girl of sixteen Whole life ahead of her Slashed her wrists Bored with life Didn't succeed Thank the Lord For small mercies Fighting back the tears Mother reads the note again Sixteen candles burn in her mind She takes the blame It's always the same She goes down on her knees and prays I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours But I think that God's Got a sick sense of humor And when I die I expect to find Him laughing Girl of eighteen Fell in love with everything Found new life In Jesus Christ Hit by a car Ended up On a life support machine Summer's day As she passed away Birds were singing In the summer sky Then came the rain And once again A tear fell From her mother's eye I don't want to start...

Blue Dress
Put it on And don't say a word Put it on The one that I prefer Put it on And stand before my eyes Put it on Please don't question why Can you believe Something so simple Something so trivial Makes me a happy man Can't you understand Say you believe Just how easy It is to please me Because when you learn You'll know what makes the world turn Put it on I can feel so much Put it on I don't need to touch Put it on Here before my eyes Put it on Because you realise And you believe Something so worthless Serves a purpose It makes me a happy man Can't you understand Say you believe Just how easy It is to please me Because when you learn You'll know what makes the world turn

Boys Say Go!
You don't understand, this is in demand And I think that I have to show you Try to look inside, take me for a ride In a day and a night get to know you Boys meet boys, get together Boys meet boys, live forever Don't say no, boys say go I could run away if you need to stay In the rain and the pain and the sorrow I'm not very sure when you place it all In the end it's the same as tomorrow

Breathe
I heard a rumour They travel far You know what it's like The way people are They talk and they talk Though they don't understand They'll whisper and whisper And lie on demand Please tell me now I want to know I have to hear it from your lips Say it's not so I heard it on Monday And I laughed a while I heard it on Tuesday I managed to smile I heard it on Wednesday My patience was tried I heard it on Thursday And I hurt inside I want to know The depths of your mind Tell me this whole thing is madness And we're doing fine Put your little hand in mine And believe in love Put your head on my chest And breathe love Breathe love Breathe love Breathe love I heard it from Peter Who heard it from Paul Who heard it from someone I don't know at all I heard it from Mary Who heard it from Ruth Who swore on the bible She's telling the truth I heard it from Simon Who heard it from James Confirming with Sarah That I was to blame I heard it from Joseph Who heard it from John Who said with conviction That all hope was gone So I need to know Your alibis I need to hear that you love me Before you say goodbye Before you say goodbye Before you say goodbye Before you say goodbye

Clean
Clean The cleanest I've been An end to the tears And the in-between years And the troubles I've seen Now that I'm clean You know what I mean I've broken my fall Put an end to it all I've changed my routine Now I'm clean I don't understand What destiny's planned I'm starting to grasp What is in my own hands I don't claim to know Where my holiness goes I just know that I like What is starting to show Sometimes Clean... As years go by All the feelings inside Twist and they turn As they ride with the tide I don't advise And I don't criticise I just know what I like With my own eyes Sometimes Clean... Sometimes

Comatose
Comatose, almost You've got me dreaming Slipping in And Sliding out Of conscious feeling Take a light Start the flame Play the game I am lost In your eyes Hypnotised Here I believe Dreams never deceive Comatose, almost You've got me dreaming Slipping in And sliding out Life has no meaning Bodies move Colours change Girl you're strange Here inside I'm at home I'm alive Don't be afraid I'm floating away Comatose, almost You've got me dreaming Slipping in And sliding out Of conscious feeling Comatose, almost Comatose, almost Comatose

Come Back
Come back, Come back to me I've been waiting, patiently Come back, Come back to me I've been waiting here patiently walking a thin white line between love and hate Wasting all of my time in another world In another place I could use a little company A little kindness could go a long way Weeks turn into months Months turn into years Reaching the same conclusions Gathering up the fear Come back Come back to me I'll been waiting, patiently Come back Come back to me I'll been waiting here patiently Light will always shine in the heart of you In truth and in reality Only blindness can hide it away I could use a little restraint A little kindness can go a long way Weeks turn into months Months turn into years Reaching the same conclusions Gathering up the fear Living the same delusion Gathering up the fear Come back

Condemnation
Condemnation Tried Here on the stand With the book in my hand And truth on my side Accusations Lies Hand me my sentence I'll show no repentance I'll suffer with pride If for honesty You want apologies I don't sympathize If for kindness You substitute blindness Please open your eyes Condemnation Why Because my duty Was always to beauty And that was my crime Feel elation High To know I can trust this Fix of injustice Time after time If you see purity As immaturity Well it's no surprise If for kindness You substitute blindness Please open your eyes

Corrupt
I could corrupt you in a heartbeat You think youre so special Think youre so sweet Wanna try it Dont even tempt me Soon youll be crying I wish youd trapped me Youll be calling out my name When you need someone to blame I could corrupt you it will be easy Watching you suffer Girl, it will please me I wanna touch you With my little finger I know it will crush you My memory would linger Youll be crying all in pain Begging me to play my games I could corrupt you it would be ugly They could sedate you But what could the drugs be? But I wouldnt touch you My hands on your hips It would be too much to Place my lips on your lips Youll be calling all my names Begging me to play my games

Death's Door
Well I'm knocking on Death's door Will I take my rest Among the blessed? Mother are you waiting? Father are you pacing? I'm coming home I'm knocking on Death's door Will I take my rest In my sunday best? Mother are you anxious? Father are you gracious? I'm coming home I've been away too long For so long it was strong I've been away too long I know that it was wrong But I'm coming home Well I'm knocking on Death's door Will I take my rest? Have I passed the test? Mother are you praying? Father I'm saying I'm coming home

Dream On
As you're bony fingers close around me Long and spindly Death becomes me Heaven can you see what I see Hey you pale and sickly child You're death and living reconciled Been walking home a crooked mile Paying debt to karma You party for a living What you take won't kill you But careful what you're giving There's no time for hesitating Pain is ready, pain is waiting Primed to do it's educating Unwanted, uninvited kin It creeps beneath your crawling skin It lives without it lives within you Feel the fever coming You're shaking and twitching You can scratch all over But that won't stop you itching Can you feel a little love Can you feel a little love Dream on dream on Blame it on your karmic curse Oh shame upon the universe It knows its lines It's well rehearsed It sucked you in, it dragged you down To where there is no hallowed ground Where holiness is never found Paying debt to karma You party for a living What you take won't kill you But careful what you're giving Can you feel a little love Can you feel a little love Dream on dream on

Dressed In Black
She's dressed in black again And I'm falling down again Down to the floor again I'm begging for more again But oh what can you do When she's dressed in black My mind wanders endlessly On paths where she's leading me With games that she likes to play And words that she doesn't say Not when we are along And she is dressed in black As a picture of herself She's a picture of the world A reflection of you A reflection of me And it's all there to see If you only give in To the fire within Dressed in black again Shadows fall on to me As she stands there over me And waits to encompass me I lay here helplessly But oh what can you do When she's dressed in black Dressed in black again...

Enjoy The Silence
Words like violence Break the silence Come crashing in Into my little world Painful to me Pierce right through me Can't you understand Oh my little girl All I ever wanted All I ever needed Is here in my arms Words are very unnecessary They can only do harm Vows are spoken To be broken Feelings are intense Words are trivial Pleasures remain So does the pain Words are meaningless And forgettable All I ever wanted... Enjoy the silence

Everything Counts
The handshake seals the contract From the contract there's no turning back The turning point of a career In Korea being insincere The holiday Was fun-packed The contract still intact The grabbing hands grab all they can All for themselves - after all The grabbing hands grab all they can All for themselves - after all It's a competitive world Everything counts in large amounts The graph on the wall Tells the story of it all Picture it now See just how The lies and deceit gained a little More power Confidence - taken in By a suntan and a grin The grabbing hands grab all they can... Everything counts in large amounts

F

Fly On The Windscreen-Final
Death is everywhere There are flies on the windscreen For a start Reminding us We could be torn apart Tonight Death is everywhere There are lambs for the slaughter Waiting to die And I can sense The hours slipping by Tonight Come here Kiss me now Come here Kiss me now Death is everywhere The more I look The more I see The more I feel A sense of urgency Tonight Come here Touch me Kiss me Touch me now Touch me Touch me There are flies on the windscreen There are lambs for the slaughter There are flies on the windscreen Come here Touch me Kiss me Touch me now Touch me

Fragile Tension
There is a fragile tension, thats keeping us going. It may not last forever, but allways flowing. Its something magical in the air, somethings so tragic we have to care. Theres a strange obsession, its drawing us nearer. We dont understand it, it never gets clearer. Its something mystical in our dreams, its so simplistic it kicks and screams. All we will seem to reek on the edge of collapse Nothing can keep us down, nothing can beat us down. Theres a dizzying felling, thats keeping us flying, without even trying, were not even trying. Its something radical in our heads, nothing logical to our plans.

Freelove
If you've been hiding from love If you've been hiding from love I can understand where you're coming from I can understand where you're coming from If you've suffered enough If you've suffered enough I can understand what you're thinking of I can see the pain that you're frightened of And I'm only here To bring you free love Let's make it clear That this is free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love I've been running like you I've been running like you Now you understand why I'm running scared Now you understand why I'm running scared I've been searching for truth I've been searching for truth And I haven't been getting anywhere No I haven't been getting anywhere And I'm only here To bring you free love Let's make it clear That this is free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love Hey girl You've got to take this moment Then let it slip away Let go of complicated feelings Then there's no price to pay We've been running from love We've been running from love And we don't know what we're doing here No we don't know what we're doing here We're only here Sharing our free love Let's make it clear That this is free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love No hidden catch No strings attached Just free love

Freestate
I can hear your soul crying Listen to your spirit sighing I can feel your desperation Emotional depravation Let yourself go Let yourself go Let your feelings show Picking up the conversations Deep in your imagination Tune in to the lonely voices Talking of their only choices Let yourself go Let yourself go Let your spirit grow Step out of your cage and onto the stage It's time to start playing your part Freedom awaits Open the gates Open your mind Freedom's a state I can taste the tears falling A victim that's inside you calling Yearning for a liberation Emotional emancipation Let yourself go Let yourself go Let your senses overflow Step out of your cage and onto the stage It's time to start playing your part Freedom awaits Open the gates Open your mind Freedom's a state

G

Get Right With Me
I will have faith in man That is hard to understand Show some humility You have the ability Get right with me Friends, if you've lost your way You will find it again some day Come down from your pedestals And open your mouths that's all Get right with me Life is such a short thing That I cannot comprehend But if this life were a bought thing There are ways I know we'd mend People, take my advice Already told you once, once or twice Don't waste your energy Making apologies Get right with me

Goodnight Lovers
Here, somewhere in the heart of me There is still a part of me That cares And I'll, I'll still take the best you've got Even though I'm sure it's not The best for me When you're born a lover You're born to suffer Like all soul sisters And soul brothers I, I can see the danger signs They only help to underline Your beauty I'm not looking for an easy ride True happiness cannot be tried So easily When you're born a lover You're born to suffer Like all soul sisters And soul brothers Like all soul sisters And soul brothers You can take your time I'll be waiting in line You don't even have to give me The time of day When you're born a lover You're born to suffer Like all soul sisters And soul brothers Like all soul sisters And soul brothers

H

Halo
You wear guilt Like shackles on your feet Like a halo in reverse I can feel The discomfort in your seat And in your head it's worse There's a pain A famine in your heart An aching to be free Can't you see All love's luxuries Are here for you and me And when our worlds they fall apart When the walls come tumbling in Though we may deserve it It will be worth it Bring your chains Your lips of tragedy And fall into my arms And when our worlds they fall apart...

Here Is The House
Here is the house Where it all happens Those tender moments Under this roof Body and soul come together As we come closer together And is it happens It happens here in this house And I feel your warmth And it feels like home And there's someone Calling on the telephone Let's stay home It's cold outside And I have so much To confide to you With or without words I'll confide everything Here is the house... So we stay at home And I'm by your side And you know What's going on inside Inside my heart Inside this house And I just want to Let it out for you And I feel your warmth And it feels like home And I feel your warmth And it feels like home Here is the house...

Higher Love
I can taste more than feel This burning inside is so real I can almost lay my hands upon The warm glow that lingers on Moved, lifted higher Moved, my soul's on fire Moved, by a higher love I surrender all control To the desire that consumes me whole And leads me by the hand to infinity That lies in wait at the heart of me Heaven bounds on the wings of love There's so much that you can rise above I surrender heart and soul Sacrificed to a higher goal

Hole to Feed
We are here We can love We share something Im sure That you mean the world to me When you get What you need Its no way of knowing What youll get Is another hole to feed Your name was the one that was always chosen Your words and the kindness that set me free Words can leave you broken inside Youll have to decide Im hanging onto my pride We are here We can love We share something Im sure That you mean the world to me The shame as a hole that has kept us frozen You open my eyes to the world I could believe This world has left me broken inside Ill have to decide Im hanging onto my pride Words can leave you broken inside Youll have to decide Im hanging onto my pride

Home
Here is a song From the wrong side of town Where I'm bound To the ground By the loneliest sound That pounds from within And is pinning me down Here is a page From the emptiest stage A cage or the heaviest cross ever made A gauge of the deadliest trap ever laid And I thank you From bringing me here For showing me home For singing these tears Finally I've found That I belong here The heat and the sickliest Sweet smelling sheets That cling to the backs of my knees And my feet I'm drowning in time To a desperate beat And I thank you... Feels like home I should have known From my first breath God send the only true friend I call mine Pretend that I'll make amends The next time Befriend the glorious end of the line And I thank you...

I

I Am You
You have bound my heart with subtle chains So much pleasure that it feels like pain So entwined now that we can't shake free I am you and you are me No escaping from the mess we're in So much pleasure that it must be sin I must live with this reality I am yours eternally There's no turning back We're in this trap No denying the facts No, no, no No excuses to give I'm the one you're with We've no alternative No, no, no Dark obsession in the name of love This addiction that we're both part of Leads us deeper into mystery Keeps us craving endlessly Strange compulsions that I can't control Pure possession of my heart and soul I must live with this reality I am you and you are me I am you and you are me I am you and you are me I am you and you are me There's no turning back We're in this trap No denying the facts No, no, no No excuses to give I'm the one you're with We've no alternative No, no, no

If You Want
Working week's come to its end Party time is here again Everyone can come if they want to If you want to be with me If you want to be with me You can come with me if you want to Exercise your basic right We could build a building site From the bricks of shame is built the hope If you want to be with me If you want to be with me Even though you may still not want to Let tomorrow and today Bring a life of ecstasy Wipe away your tears of confusion If you want to be with me If you want to be with me You can come with me if you want to Even though you may still not want to

I Feel Loved
It's the dark night of my soul And temptation's taking hold But through the pain and the suffering Through the heartache and trembling I feel loved I feel loved As the darkness closes in In my head I hear whispering Questioning and beckoning But I'm not taken in I feel loved I feel loved From the depths of my emptiness Comes a feeling of inner bliss I feel wanted, I feel desired I can feel my soul on fire I feel loved I feel loved

I Feel You
I feel you Your sun it shines I feel you Within my mind You take me there You take me where The kingdom comes You take me to And lead me through Babylon This is the morning of our love It's just the dawning of our love I feel you Your heart it sings I feel you The joy it brings Where heaven waits Those golden gates And back again You take me to And lead me through oblivion This is the morning of our love It's just the dawning of our love I feel you Your precious soul I feel you And I am whole I feel you Your rising sun My kingdom comes I feel you Each move you make I feel you Each breath you take Where angels sing And spread their wings My love's on high You take me home To glory's throne By and by This is the morning of our love

In Chains
The way you move Has got me yearning The way you move Has left me burning I know you know what youre doing to me I know my hands will never be free I know what it's like to be in chains The way you move Is meant to hold me The way you move To attempt to insult me I know you knew on the day you were born I know somehow I shouldn't be warned I know I walk every midnight to dark in chains In chains I'm in chains In chains I'm in chains You've got me dying for you It's you that I'm living through You've got me praying to you Saying to you anything you want me to You've got me reaching for you My soul's beseeching me too You've got me singing to you Bringing to you anything you ask me to The way you move It's mesmerizing The way you move It's hypnotizing I know I crumble when you are around Start to mumble a bit of false sound Straggle stumble shackled and bound in chains In chains I'm in chains In chains I'm in chains You've got me dying for you It's you that I'm living through You've got me praying to you Saying to you anything you want me to You've got me reaching for you My soul's beseeching me too You've got me singing to you Bringing to you anything you ask me to I'm in chains In chains I'm in chains In chains

In Sympathy
Theyre almost falling over you Why don't we call a truce Whatever they are trying to do It's of little use They're drowning you in compliments Trying to furnish proof In all they speak with eloquence There is little truth You're bright, you're strong You know your right from wrong At least to some degree You're wise, you're tuff You've heard the lies enough You smile in sympathy I'm watching your serenity The way your soul transcends The tedious of sanities Your patience never ends And as the night begins to fade You're heading for the door You fall about separate You're on your own once more You're bright, you're strong You know your right from wrong At least to some degree You're wise, you're tuff You've heard the lies enough You smile in sympathy

Insight
This is an insight Into my life This is a strange flight I'm taking My true will Carries me along This is a soul dance Embracing me This is the first chance To put things right Moving on Guided by the light And the spirit of love Is rising within me Talking to you now Telling you clearly The fire still burns Wisdom of ages Rush over me Heighten my senses Enlighten me Lead me on Eternally And the spirit of love... I'm talking to you now The fire still burns Whatever you do now You've got to give love The world still turns I'm talking to you now

In Your Room
In your room Where time stands still Or moves at your will Will you let the morning come soon Or will you leave me lying here In your favourite darkness Your favourite half-light Your favourite consciousness Your favourite slave In your room Where souls disappear Only you exist here Will you lead me to your armchair Or leave me lying here Your favourite innocence Your favourite prize Your favourite smile Your favourite slave I'm hanging on your words living on your breath Feeling with your skin Will I always be here In your room Your burning eyes Cause flames to arise Will you let the fire die down soon Or will I always be here Your favourite passion Your favourite game Your favourite mirror Your favourite slave I'm hanging on your words...

It Doesn't Matter
I am happy That I have you Even though you're not here now I know somewhere You are dreaming Though it's definitely not of me It doesn't matter If this all shatters Nothing lasts forever But I'm praying That we're staying Together I am warmed By your friendship Even when you're far away And I'm happy In the knowledge We may never see the day When I kiss you And you kiss me Don't pretend you miss me The worst kind Of diseased mind Is one filled with jealousy If we should meet again Don't try to solve the puzzle Just lay down next to me And please don't move a muscle I will thank you Most of all for The respect you have for me I'm embarrassed It overwhelms me Because I don't deserve any It doesn't matter...

It Doesn't Matter Two
As I lay here with you The shame lies with us We talk of love and trust That doesn't matter Though we may be the last in the world We feel like pioneers Telling hopes and fears To one another And oh what a feeling Inside of me It might last for an hour Wounds aren't healing Inside of me Though it feel good now I know it's only for now The feeling is intense You grip me with your eyes And then I realise It doesn't matter

It's No Good
I'm going to take my time I have all the time in the world To make you mine It is written in the stars above The gods decree You'll be right here by my side Right next to me You can run, but you cannot hide Don't say you want me Don't say you need me Don't say you love me It's understood Don't say you're happy Out there without me I know you can't be 'Cause it's no good I'll be fine I'll be waiting patiently Till you see the signs And come running to my open arms When will you realise Do we have to wait till our worlds collide Open up your eyes You can't turn back the tide Don't say you want me... I'm going to take my time I have all the time in the world To make you mine It is written in the stars above

I Want You Now
I want you now Tomorrow won't do There's a yearning inside And it's showing through Reach out your hands And accept my love We've waited for too long Enough is enough I want you now My heart is aching My body is burning My hands are shaking My head is turning Do you understand It's so easy to choose We've got time to kill We've got nothing to lose I want you now And I don't mean to sound Like one of the boys That's not what I'm trying to do I don't want to be Like one of the boys I just want you now Because I've got a love A love that won't wait A love that is growing And it's getting late Do you know what it means To be left this way When everyone's gone And the feelings they stay I want you now

J

Jezebel
They call you Jezebel Whenever we walk in you're going straight to hell For wanted acts of sin - they say, and that I'll have to pay But I need you just this way They call you Jezebel For what you like to wear You're morally unwell They say you never care for me But what the fail to see is that your games are the key Open their eyes to the beauty Open their hearts to the fun Open their minds to the idea that you don't own someone They call you Jezebel Whenever men walk by They say that they can tell The longing in your eyes is real and how you really feel But they can't see your appeal Jezebel

Judas
Is simplicity the best Or simply the easiest The narrowest path Is always the holiest So walk on barefoot for me Suffer some misery If you want my love If you want my love Man will survive The harshest conditions And stay alive Through difficult decisions So make up your mind for me Walk the line for me If you want my love If you want my love Idle talk And hollow promises Cheating Judases Doubting Thomases Don't just stand there and shout it Do something about it You can fulfil Your wildest ambitions And I'm sure you will Lose your inhibitions So open yourself for me Risk your health for me If you want my love If you want my love If you want my love If you want my love

Just Can't Get Enough
When I'm with you baby I go out of my head I just can't get enough I just can't get enough All the things you do to me And everything you said I just can't get enough I just can't get enough We slip and slide as we fall in love And I just can't seem to get enough We walk together We're walking down the street I just can't get enough I just can't get enough Everytime I think of you I know we have to meet I just can't get enough I just can't get enough It's getting hotter, it's a burning love And I just can't seem to get enough And when it rains You're shining down to me I just can't get enough I just can't get enough Just like a rainbow You know you set me free I just can't get enough I just can't get enough You're like an angel and you give me your love And I just can't seem to get enough

Leave In Silence
I've told myself so many times before But this time I think I mean it for sure We have reached a full stop Nothing's gonna save us from the big drop Reached our natural conclusion Outlived the illusion I hate being in these situations That call for diplomatic relations If I only knew the answer Or I thought we had a chance Or I could stop this I would stop this thing from spreading like a cancer What can I say? I don't want to play anymore What can I say? I'm heading for the door I can't stand this emotional violence Leave in silence We've been running around in circles all year Doing this and that in getting nowhere This'll be the last time I think I said that last time If I only had a potion of Some magical lotion That could stop this, I would stop this I would set the wheels in motion What can I say? I don't want to play anymore What can I say? I'm heading for the door I can't stand this emotional violence Leave in silence

Lie To Me
Come on and lay with me Come on and lie to me Tell me you love me Say I'm the only one Experiences have a lasting impression But words once spoken Don't mean a lot now Belief is the way The way of the innocent And when I say innocent I should say naive So lie to me But do it with sincerity Make me listen Just for a minute Make me think There's some truth in it Promises made for convenience Aren't necessarily What we need Truth is a word That's lost its meaning The truth has become Merely half-truth So lie to me Like they do it in the factory Make me think That at the end of the day Some great reward Will be coming my way

Little 15
Little fifteen You help her forget The world outside You're not part of it yet And if you could drive You could drive her away To a happier place To a happier day That exists in your mind And in your smile She could escape there Just for a while Little fifteen Little fifteen Why take the smooth with the rough When things run smooth It's already more than enough She knows your mind Is not yet in league With the rest of the world And its little intrigues Do you understand Do you know what she means As time goes by And when you've seen what she's seen You will Little fifteen Little fifteen Why does she have to defend Her feelings inside Why pretend She's not had a life A life of near misses Now all that she wants Is three little wishes She wants to see with your eyes She wants to smile with your smile She wants a nice surprise Every once in a while Little fifteen

Little Soul
My little light Is going to shine Shine out so bright And illuminate your mind My little soul Will leave a footprint This little voice Is going to sing I have no choice It will infinitely ring My little soul Will leave a footprint Im channelling the universe Its focusing its love inside of me A singularity My little words Are going to sting Havent you heard The pain and joy they bring My little soul Will leave a footprint Im channelling the universe Its focusing its love inside of me A singularity Your little eyes Theyre going to see I cant disguise The beauty inside me My little soul Will leave a footprint

Love In Itself
All of these insurmountable tasks That lay before me All of the firsts and the definite lasts That lay in store for me There was a time When all on my mind was love Now I find that most of the time Love's not enough In itself Consequently I've a tendency to be unhappy You see the thoughts in my head All the words that were said All the blues and the reds get to me There was a time... All of these absurdities That lay before us All of the doubts and the certainties That lay in store for us There was a time...

Master And Servant
It's a lot It's a lot Like life There's a new game We like to play you see A game with added reality You treat me like a dog Get me down on my knees We call it master and servant We call it master and servant It's a lot like life This play between the sheets With you on top and me underneath Forget all about equality Let's play master and servant Let's play master and servant It's a lot like life And that's what's appealing If you despise that throwaway feeling From disposable fun Then this is the one Domination's the name of the game In bed or in life They're both just the same Except in one you're fulfilled At the end of the day Let's play master and servant Let's play master and servant Let's play master and servant Come on, master and servant

Mercy In You
You know what I need When my heart bleeds I suffer from greed A longing to feed On the mercy in you I can't conceal The way I'm healed The pleasure I feel When I have to deal With the mercy in you I would do it all again Lose my way and fall again Just so I could call again On the mercy in you When here in my mind I feel inclined To wrongly treat you unkind I have faith I will find The mercy in you I would lose my way again Be led hopelessly astray again Just so I could pray again For the mercy in you When here in my mind I have been blind Emotionally behind I have faith I will find The mercy in you

Miles Away / The Truth Is
It's one of those conversations We've we've had to devour The ones that leave you empty And wanting for more You're eyes they tell me something That I understand You're eyes they hold the truth And the truth is You're miles away You're miles away You're miles away Excuse me for my hesitation Of I met you before Your face seems so familiar And belonging for more You're eyes they tell me something That I understand You're eyes they hold the truth And a truth is You're miles away You're miles away You're miles away With all your superstitions And empty lines I could be just like you With drum but alive Life we have with it's limitation We all have our needs Love to be the only answer To lies and their trees You're eyes they tell me something That I understand You're eyes they hold the truth And a truth is You're miles away You're miles away You're miles away

Monument
When the site was found We laid the foundations down It didn't take long before They came back tumbling down Don't build at night, you need a little light How else you gonna see what it's gonna be like? So we picked up our tools And we worked in the morning light With the last stone placed Wasn't it a wonderful sight? But it fell back down and scattered all around Anything passes when you need glasses My monument it fell down My monument it fell down Work all of my days for this kind of praise It fell down

More Than A Party
Lots of surprises in store This isn't a party it's a whole lot more We've had enough of this blind man's bluff You've kept us in the dark for long enough This is more than a party More than a party More than a party Keep telling us we're to have fun Then take all the ice cream so we've got none The failed magician waves his wand And in an instant the laughter's gone This is more than a party... Lots of surprises in store This isn't a party it's a whole lot more More than a party

My Secret Garden
My secret garden's not so secret anymore Run from the house holding my head in my hands Feeling dejected, feeling like a child might feel It all seems so absurd that this should have occurred My very only secret and I had to go and leak it My secret garden's not so secret anymore No, my secret garden's not so secret anymore Run through the fields down to the edge of the water Can't stay long, here comes the reason why She'll catch me if she can, take me by the hand I'll have to keep on running and I just can't see the fun in My secret garden not being secret anymore It used to be so easy on days such as these she'd Search and search for hours, in among the flowers I loved it, I loved her I loved it, I loved her Play the fool, act so cruel, I loved it Read a book, take a look, I loved her It all seems so absurd that this should have occurred My very only secret and I had to go and leak it My secret garden's not so secret anymore

New Life
I stand still stepping on a shady street And I watch that man to stranger You think you'll only know me When you turn on the light Now the room is liquid red danger Complicating, circulating New life, new life Operating, generating New life, new life Transitionto another place So that time will pass more slowly Your features fuse And your shadow's red Like a film I've seen now show me The place is hidden and we're out of sight And the road just leads nowhere The stranger in the door Is the same as before So the question answer's nowhere

Nodisco

People Are People
People are people so why should it be You and I should get along so awfully So we're different colours And we're different creeds And different people have different needs It's obvious you hate me Though I've done nothing wrong I never even met you So what could I have done I can't understand What makes a man Hate another man Help me understand People are people so why should it be... Help me understand Help me understand Now you're punching and you're kicking And you're shouting at me I'm relying on your common decency So far it hasn't surfaced But I'm sure it exists It just takes a while to travel From your head to your fist I can't understand What makes a man Hate another man Help me understand

Perfect
On another world by another star At another place and time In another state of consciousness In another state of mind Everything was almost perfect Everything fell into place That you may reach a different verdict Before the judges missed the case In a parallel universe that's happening right now Things between us must be worse but it's hard to see just how And everything could have been perfect Everything in the right place Then I wouldn't have to play the suspect Accused, abandoned and disgraced I didn't choose, I didn't pull the trigger It wasn't me, I'm just a plain and simple singer I heard the sound, I turned my head around To watch our love shot down In another lonely universe, we're laying side by side No one's hurt and no one's cursed and no one needs to lie And everything is almost perfect Everything is almost right There are never any conflicts There are never any fights

Personal Jesus
Your own personal Jesus Someone to hear your prayers Someone who cares Your own personal Jesus Someone to hear your prayers Someone who's there Feeling unknown And you're all alone Flesh and bone By the telephone Lift up the receiver I'll make you a believer Take second best Put me to the test Things on your chest You need to confess I will deliver You know I'm a forgiver Reach out and touch faith Reach out and touch faith Your own personal Jesus...

Pipeline
Get out the crane Construction time again What is it this time We're laying on a pipeline Let the beads of sweat flow Until the ends have met, though It could take a long time Working on a pipeline Taking from the greedy, giving to the needy On this golden day Work's been sent our way That could last a lifetime Working on a pipeline From the heart of the land To the mouth of the man Must reach him sometime We're laying on a pipeline Taking from the greedy, giving to the needy

Photographic (Photographic Pictures)
A white house, a white room The program of today Light's on, switch on Your eyes are far away The map represents you And the tape is your voice Follow all along you Till you recognize the choice I take pictures, photographic pictures Bright light, dark room I said I'd write a letter But I newer got the time And I'm looking to the day I mesmerize at night The years I spent just thinking Of a moment we both knew A second past like in empty room It seems it can't be true Bright light, dark room

Policy Of Truth
You had something to hide Should have hidden it, shouldn't you Now you're not satisfied With what you're being put through It's just time to pay the price For not listening to advice And deciding in your youth On the policy of truth Things could be so different now It used to be so civilised You will always wonder how It could have been if you'd only lied It's too late to change events It's time to face the consequence For delivering the proof In the policy of truth Never again Is what you swore The time before Never again Is what you swore The time before Now you're standing there tongue tied You'd better learn your lesson well Hide what you have to hide And tell what you have to tell You'll see your problems multiplied If you continually decide To faithfully pursue The policy of truth Never again...

Precious
Precious and fragile things Need special handling My God what have we done to you We always tried to share The tenderest of care Now look what we have put you through Things get damaged Things get broken I thought we'd manage But words left unspoken Left us so brittle There was so little left to give Angels with silver wings Shouldn't know suffering I wish I could take the pain for you If God has a master plan That only He understands I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through Things get damaged Things get broken I thought we'd manage But words left unspoken Left us so brittle There was so little left to give I pray you learn to trust Have faith in both of us And keep room in your hearts for two Things get damaged Things get broken I thought we'd manage But words left unspoken Left us so brittle There was so little left to give

I come up to meet you Up there somewhere When I rush to greet you My soul is bared Gave more for you Dropped my crutches And crawled on the floor for you Went looking behind every door for you And because of the things That I saw for you I spiritually grew When I come up...

Sacred
Sacred Holy To put it in words To write it down That is walking on hallowed ground But it's my duty I'm a missionary So here is my confession It's an obsession I'm a firm believer And a warm receiver And I've made my decision This is religion There's no doubt I'm one of the devout Trying to sell the story Of love's eternal glory Sacred... Spreading the news around the world Taking the word to boys and girls I'm a firm believer And a warm receiver And I will go down on my knees When I see beauty There's no doubt I'm one of the devout Trying to sell the story Of love's eternal glory Sacred... Sacred Holy To put it in words To write it down That is walking on hallowed ground

Satellite
Now hear this my friends I'll never be the same again Gonna lock myself in a cold black room Gonna shadow myself in a veil of gloom I will function, operate I will be a satellite of hate Driven to this point by a chain of events Each one pushed me nearer the edge Gonna send my message through to you And you'll receive the signal too I will function, operate I will be a satellite of hate Higher Disillusioned, I was disenchanted Forgot the love that had been implanted Heard the lies and I felt the cold It broke my heart and I lost control Now I'm a satellite of a free state I'm a satellite of hate A satellite of hate Higher

See You
All I want to do is see you again Is that too much to ask for? I just want to see your sweet smile Smiled the way it was before Well I'll try not to hold you And I'll try not to kiss you And I won't even touch you All I want to do is see you Don't you know that it's true? I remember the days when we'd walk through the woods And sit on the bench for a while I treasure the way we used to laugh and play And look in each others eyes You can keep me at a distance if you don't trust my resistance But I swear I won't touch you All I want to do is see you... Well I know five years is a long time and that times changed But I think that you will find people are basically the same If the water's still flowing, we can go for a swim And do the things we used to do And if I'm reluctant you can pull me in And we can relive our youth Oh but we'll stay friendly like sister and brother But I think I still love you All I want to do is see you...

Shame
Do you ever get that feeling When the guilt begins to hurt Seeing all the children Wallowing in dirt Crying out with hunger Crying out in pain At least the dirt will wash off When it starts to rain Soap won't wash away your shame Do you ever get that feeling That something isn't right Seeing your brother's fists Clenched ready for the fight Soon the fighting turns to weapons And the weapons turn to wounds So the doctors stitch and stitch and stitch And stitch and stitch and stitch and stitch Surgery won't improve your pain It all seems so stupid It makes me want to give up But why should I give up When it all seems so stupid Do you ever get that feeling That something can't be done To eradicate these problems And make the people one Do you ever get that feeling Something like a nagging itch And all the while the doctors Stitch and stitch and stitch And stitch and stitch Hope alone won't remove the stains Shame It all seems so stupid...

Shine
Put on your blindfold And a dress that's tight And come with me On a mystery night Open your eyes Follow our stars under a painted sky We'll leave the world behind We're learning to fly We used to get by Forget the pictures on your TV screen We'll steal the visions That you keep for your dreams You can turn me on I was blind and I saw the light My angel coming In a brilliant white Shine for me You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity Strung up by your insecurities You can shine for me Somebody has to Shine for me It's difficult not to Shine for me Follow our stars under a painted sky We'll leave the world behind We're learning to fly We used to get by Forget the pictures on your TV screen We'll steal the visions That you keep for your dreams You can turn me on You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity Strung up by your insecurities You can shine for me Somebody has to Shine for me It's difficult not to Shine for me Somebody has to Shine for me It's difficult not to Shine for me

Shouldn't Have Done That (Things Must Be)

Shout (Get It Right)

Sister Of Night
Sister of night When the hunger descends And your body's a fire An inferno that never ends An eternal flame That burns in desire's name Sister of night When the longing returns Giving voice to the flame Calling you through flesh that burns Breaking down your will To move in for the kill Oh sister Come for me Embrace me Assure me Hey sister I feel it too Sweet sister Just feel me I'm trembling You heal me Hey sister I feel it too Sister of night In your saddest dress As you walk through the light You're desperate to impress So you slide to the floor Feeling insecure Sister of night With the loneliest eyes Tell youself it's alright He'll make such a perfect prize But the cold light of day Will give the game away Oh sister...

Somebody
I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life Share my innermost thoughts Know my intimate details Someone who'll stand by my side And give me support And in return She'll get my support She will listen to me When I want to speak About the world we live in And life in general Though my views may be wrong They may even be perverted She'll hear me out And won't easily be converted To my way of thinking In fact she'll often disagree But at the end of it all She will understand me I want somebody who cares For me passionately With every thought and with every breath Someone who'll help me see things In a different light All the things I detest I will almost like I don't want to be tied To anyone's strings I'm carefully trying to steer clear Of those things But when I'm asleep I want somebody Who will put their arms around me And kiss me tenderly Though things like this Make me sick In a case like this I'll get away with it

I can't stand another drink It's surprising this town Doesn't sink You've got your leather boots on Is there something to do... Your pretty dress is oil stained From working too hard For too little You've got your leather boots on Is there something to do... You're feeling the boredom too I'd gladly go with you I'd put your leather boots on Is there something to do... I'd put your pretty dress up Is there something to do...

Sometimes
Sometimes Only sometimes A question everything And I'm the first to admit If you catch me in a mood like this I can be tiring Even embarrassing But you must Feel the same When you look around You can't tell me honestly You're happy with what you see Oh sometimes Only sometimes You must be... You must be... As embarrassing as me Sometimes

Stories Of Old
Take a look at unselected cases You'll find love has been wrecked By both sides compromising Amounting to a disastrous effect You hear stories of old Of princes bold With riches untold Happy souls Casting it all aside To take some bride To have the girl of their dreams At their side But not me I couldn't do that Not me I'm not like that I couldn't sacrifice Anything at all To love I really like you I'm attracted to you The way you move The things you do I'll probably burn in hell For saying this But I'm really in heaven Whenever we kiss But oh no! You won't change me You can try For an eternity I wouldn't sacrifice Anything at all To love Now I've got things to do You have too And I've got to be me You've got to be you So take my hand And feel these lips And let's savor a kiss Like we'd savor a sip Of vintage wine One more time Let's surrender To this love divine But we won't sacrifice Anything at all To love

Strangelove

Sweetest Perfection
The sweetest perfection To call my own The slightest correction Couldn't finely hone The sweetest infection Of body and mind Sweetest injection Of any kind I stop and I stare too much Afraid that I care too much And I hardly dare to touch For fear that the spell may be broken When I need a drug in me And it brings out the thug in me Feel something tugging me Then I want the real thing not tokens The sweetest perfection... Things you'd expect to be Having effect on me Pass undetectedly But everyone knows what has got me Takes me completely Touches so sweetly Reaches so deeply I know that nothing can stop me Sweetest perfection An offer was made An assorted collection But I wouldn't trade The sweetest perfection... Takes me completely Touches so sweetly Reaches so deeply Nothing can stop me

The Bottom Line
Like a cat Dragged in from the rain Who goes stright back out To do it all over again I'll be back for more It's something That is out of our hands Something we will never understand It's a hidden law The apple falls Destiny calls I follow you Like a pawn On the eternal board Who's never quite sure What he's moved towards I walk blindly on And heaven is in front of me Your heaven beckons me enticingly When I arrive It's gone The river flows The wise man knows I follow you I'm yearning I'm burning I feel love's wheels turning Like a moth on love's bright light I will get burned Each and every night I'm dying to(o) The sun will shine The bottom line I will follow you

The Dead Of Night
We're the horniest boys With the corniest ploys Who take the easiest girls To our sleaziest worlds With our lecherous plans In our treacherous hands You'd be wasting your time Saying no, it's a crime All that we live for you'll regret All you remember we'll forget We are the dead of night We're in the zombie room We're twilight's parasites With self-inflicted wounds We are the dead of night We're in the zombie room Heavenly oversights Eating from silver spoons With our decadent minds And our innocent lines You'll be playing our games With your bodies in flames When delirious fun Has seriously begun You'll be down on your knees You'll be begging us please All we're demanding you'll supply All we're accused of we'll deny We are the dead of night We're in the zombie room We're twilight's parasites With self-inflicted wounds We are the dead of night We're in the zombie room Heavenly oversights Eating from silver spoons

The Landscape Is Changing
The landscape is changing, the landscape is crying Thousand of acres of forest are dying Carbon copies from the hills above the forest line Acid streams are flowing I'll across the countryside 'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere Just take good care of the world I don't care if you're going nowhere Just take good care of the world Now we're rearranging There's no use denying Mountains and valleys can't you hear them sighing Evolution, the solution, almost certainty Can you imagine this intrusion of their privacy 'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere... Token gestures, some semblance of intelligence Can we be blamed for the security of ignorance 'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere...

The Love Thieves
Oh tears that you weep For the poor tortured souls Who fall at your feet With their love begging bowls All the clerks and the tailors The sharks and the sailors All good at their trades But they'll always be failures Alms for the poor For the wretched disciples And the love that they swore With their hearts on the bible Beseeching the honour To sit at your table And feast on your holiness As long as they're able Love needs its martyrs Nedds its sacrifices They live for your beauty And pay for their vices Love will be the death of My lonely soul brothers But their spirit shall live on in The hearts of all lovers You're holding court With your lips and your smile Your body's a halo Their minds are on trial Sure as adam is eve Sure as jonah turned whaler They're crooked love thieves And you are their jailor Love needs its martyrs...

The Meaning Of Love
I've read more than a hundred books Seen love mentioned many thousand times But despite all the places I've looked It's still no clearer it's just not enough I'm still no nearer the meaning of love Noted down all my observations Spent an evening watching television Still I couldn't say with precision Know it's a feeling and it comes from above But what's the meaning, the meaning of love? The meaning of love Tell me the meaning of love From the notes that I've made so far Love seems something like wanting a scar Well I could be wrong, I'm just not sure you see, I've never been in love before Next I asked several friends of mine If they could spare a few minutes of their time Their look suggested that I'd lost my mind Tell me the answer, my Lord high above Tell me the meaning, the meaning of love The meaning of love... Tell me the meaning of love

The Sun And The Rainfall
Someone will call Something will fall And smash on the floor Without reading the text Know what comes next Seen it before And it's painful Things must change We must rearrange them Or we'll have to estrange them All that I'm saying The game's not worth playing Over and over again You're the one I like best You retain my interest You're the only one If it wasn't for you Don't know what I'd do Unpredictable like the sun And the rainfall Things must change...

The Sweetest Condition
Taken in by the delicate noise Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice Wandering around in silent wonder What chance did I have With the silver moon Hanging in the sky Opening old wounds Taking hold of the hem of your dress Cleanliness only comes in small doses Bodily whole but my head's in a mess Fuelling obsession that borders psychosis It's a sad disease Creeping through my mind Causing disabilities Of the strangest kind Getting lost in the folds of your skirt There's a price that I pay for my mission A body in heaven and a mind full of dirt How I suffer the sweetest condition Taken in by the delicate noise Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice Wandering around in silent wonder

The Things You Said
I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said But they know me better than that They know me better than that They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses I never denied them I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said How can a view become so twisted How can a view become so twisted They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses You tried them I get so carried away You brought me down to earth I thought we had something precious Now I know what it's worth I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said I've never felt so disappointed Never felt so disappointed They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses Thought that you liked them They know me better than that

To Have And To Hold
I need to be cleansed It's time to make amends For all of the fun The damage is done And I feel diseased I'm down on my knees And I need forgiveness Someone to bear witness To the goodness within Beneath the sin Although I may flirt With all kinds of dirt To the point of disease Now I want release From all this decay Take it away And somewhere There's someone who cares With a heart of gold To have and to hold

Told You So
And do those feet in modern times Walk upon the flowers And walk upon their brothers While their heads are busy lying low Trying to keep to cover, oh Something went wrong along the way Everybody's waiting for judgment day So they can go Told you so They can go Told you so Bring me my gun of itching desire Bring me my bullets and I will fire Sights set higher than the tall church spire Something went wrong along the way Everybody's waiting for judgment day So they can go... Standing in line, the blind lead the blind Waiting and waiting for an overdue sign Brothers and sisters playing chinese whispers If things aren't suited then they'll get diluted Here's one more dead with a hole in his head He shouldn't have said all the things he said Many tears were shed for the blood he bled Something went wrong along the way Everybody's waiting for judgment day So they can go...

Tora! Tora! Tora!
They were raining from the sky Exploding in my heart Is this their love in disguise Or just a form of modern art From the skies You could almost hear the cry Tora! Tora! Tora! In the towns They are going down Tora! Tora! Tora! I had a nightmare only yesterday You played a sceleton You took my love then died that day I played an American I played an American

Two Minute Warning
We're lying by the orange sky Two million miles across the land Scattered to the highest high Expect they'll either laugh or cry No sex, no consequence, no sympathy You're good enough to eat Two minute warning Two minutes later When time has come My days are numbered The dawning of another year Marks time for those who understand One in four still here While you and I go hand in hand No radio, no sound, no sin, no sanctuary So welcome to your last Two minute warning... The sun, the solitude, the cemetery So welcome to your last Two minute warning...

Useless
Well it's about time It's beginning to hurt Time you made up your mind Just what is it all worth All my useless advice All my hanging around Are you cutting down to size All my bringing you down Watch the clock on the wall Feel the slowing of time Hear a voice in the hall Echoing in my mind All your stupid ideals You've got your head in the clouds You should see how it feels With your feet on the ground Here I stand the accused With your fist in my face Feeling tired and bruised With the bitterest taste All my useless advice... All your stupid ideals...

Waiting For The Night
I'm waiting for the night to fall I know that it will save us all When everything's dark Keeps us from the stark reality I'm waiting for the night to fall When everything is bearable And there in the still All that you feel is tranquillity There is a star in the sky Guiding my way with its light And in the glow of the moon Know my deliverance will come soon I'm waiting for the night to fall... There is a sound in the calm Someone is coming to harm I press my hands to my ears It's easier here just to forget fear And when I squinted The world seemed rose-tinted And angels appeared to descend To my surprise With half-closed eyes Things looked even better Than when they were open Been waiting for the night to fall I knew that it would save us all Now everything's dark Keeps us from the stark reality Been waiting for the night to fall Now everything is bearable And here in the still All that you feel is tranquility

Walking In My Shoes
I would tell you about the things They put me through The pain I've been subjected to But the Lord himself would blush The countless feasts laid at my feet Forbidden fruits for me to eat But I think your pulse would start to rush Now I'm not looking for absolution Forgiveness for the things I do But before you come to any conclusions Try walking in my shoes Try walking in my shoes You'll stumble in my footsteps Keep the same appointments I kept If you try walking in my shoes If you try walking in my shoes Morality would frown upon Decency look down upon The scapegoat fate's made of me But I promise you, my judge and jurors My intentions couldn't have been purer My case is easy to see I'm not looking for a clearer conscience Peace of mind after what I've been through And before we talk of repentance Try walking in my shoes Try walking in my shoes You'll stumble in my footsteps... Try walking in my shoes

What's Your Name?
Sometimes watch you Walk the street at midnight Sometimes I can feel you in the air Looking good, knew you would All the time I understood Hey, you're such a pretty boy You're so pretty Everybody seems to look your way now (Everybody seems to look your way) Everybody wants to know your name (Hey, hey, what's your name?) Feeling right, just tonight Hear them say you're out of sight All the boys we got to get together All the boys together we can stand We can go, never know All the things we need to show P-R-E-double T-Y

When The Body Speaks
To the soul's desires The body listens What the flesh requires Keeps the heart imprisoned What the spirit seeks The mind will follow When the body speaks All else is hollow I'm just an angel Driving blindly Through this world I'm just a slave here At the mercy Of a girl Oh I need your tenderness Oh I need your touch Oh I dream of one caress Oh I pray too much To the soul's desires The body listens What the flesh requires Keeps the heart imprisoned What the spirit seeks The mind will follow When the body speaks All else is hollow You keep me waiting For the promise That is mine Please stop debating Please stop wasting Your time Oh I need your tenderness Oh I need your touch Oh I dream of one caress Oh I pray too much

Work Hard
You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard If you want anything at all You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard If you want anything at all Nothing comes easy And that's a fact Nothing comes easy But a broken back You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard If you want anything at all You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard If you want anything at all Nothing comes easy It never will Nothing comes easy But a broken will You've got to work hard, you've got to work hard... You've got to work hard You've got to work hard You've got to work hard So work hard!

World Full Of Nothing
Close Naked Skin on skin Tears are falling Tears of joy Her first boy His first girl Makes a change In a world full of nothing Though it's not love It means something She's lonely And he says It's for her only That he lusts She doesn't trust him Nothing is true But he will do In a world full of nothing... It's easy to slip away And believe it all Though it's not love It means something

World In My Eyes
Let me take you on a trip Around the world and back And you won't have to move You just sit still Now let your mind do the walking And let my body do the talking Let me show you the world in my eyes I'll take you to the highest mountain To the depths of the deepest sea We won't need a map, believe me Now let my body do the moving And let my hands do the soothing Let me show you the world in my eyes That's all there is Nothing more than you can feel now That's all there is Let me put you on a ship On a long, long trip Your lips close to my lips All the islands in the ocean All the heaven's in the motion Let me show you the world in my eyes That's all there is Nothing more than you can touch now That's all there is Let me show you the world in my eyes

Wrong
I was born with the wrong sign In the wrong house With the wrong ascendancy I took the wrong road That led to the wrong tendencies I was in the wrong place at the wrong time For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme On the wrong day of the wrong week I used the wrong method with the wrong technique Wrong Wrong Theres something wrong with me Chemically Something wrong with me Inherently The wrong mix in the wrong genes I reached the wrong ends by the wrong means It was the wrong plan In the wrong hands With the wrong theory for the wrong man The wrong lies, on the wrong vibes The wrong questions with the wrong replies Wrong Wrong I was marching to the wrong drum With the wrong scum Pissing out the wrong energy Using all the wrong lines And the wrong signs With the wrong intensity I was on the wrong page of the wrong book With the wrong rendition of the wrong hook Made the wrong move, every wrong night With the wrong tune played till it sounded right yeah Wrong Wrong Too long Wrong I was born with the wrong sign In the wrong house With the wrong ascendancy I took the wrong road That led to the wrong tendencies I was in the wrong place at the wrong time For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme On the wrong day of the wrong week I used the wrong method with the wrong technique
