‘In Chains’

The way you move
Has got me yearning
The way you move
Has left me burning
I know you know what you’re 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 haunt me
The way you move
To tempt and taunt me
I know you knew on the day you were born
I know somehow I should’ve been warned
I know I walk every midnight to dawn
In Chains
In chains, I’m in chains
In chains, I’m in chains
You’ve got me dying for you
Its 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
Is mesmerizing
The way you move
Is hypnotizing
I know I crumble when you are around
Start to mumble a bit of a false sound
Stagger, 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
Its 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, I’m in chains
In chains, I’m in chains



‘Hole to Feed’

We are here, we can love
We share something
I’m sure that you’ll mean the world to me
When you get, what you need
It’s no way of knowing
What you 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
You’ll have to decide
I’m hanging onto my pride
We are here, we can love
We share something
I’m sure that you’ll 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
I’ll have to decide
I’m hanging onto my pride
Words can leave you broken inside
You’ll have to decide
I’m hanging onto my pride
We are here
This world can leave you broken inside
I’ll have to decide
I’m hanging onto my pride
We are here, we can love
We share something
I’m sure that you’ll 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



‘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
There’s 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
Wrong



‘Fragile Tension’

There is a fragile tension,
That’s keeping us going.
It may not last forever,
But always flowing.
It’s something magical in the air,
Something’s so tragic we have to care.

There’s a strange obsession,
It’s drawing us nearer.
We don’t understand it,
It never get’s clearer.
It’s something mystical in our dreams,
It’s so simplistic it kicks and screams.
Nothing can keep us down,
Nothing can beat us down.
There’s a dizzying felling,
That’s keeping us flying,
Without even trying,
We’re not even trying.
It’s something radical in our heads,
Nothing logical to our plans



‘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
I’m channeling the universe
It’s focusing its love inside of me
A Singularity
My little words
Are going to sting
Haven’t you heard
The pain and joy they bring
My little soul
Will leave a footprint
I’m channeling the universe
It’s focusing its love inside of me
A singularity
Your little eyes
They’re going to see
I can’t disguise
The beauty inside me
My little soul
Will leave a footprint



‘In Sympathy’

They’re almost falling over you
Why don’t they call a truce
What ever they are trying to do
Its of little use
They’re drowning you in compliments
Trying to furnish proof
Although they speak with eloquence
There is little truth

You’re bright, you’re strong, you know the right from wrong
At least to some degree
You’re wise, you’re tough, you’ve heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy
I’m watching your serenity
The way your so transense
The tidiest absurdities
Your patience never ends
And as the night begins to fade
Your heading for the door
Followed by sad parade
Your on your own once more
You’re bright, you’re strong, you know the right from wrong
At least to some degree
You’re wise, you’re tough, you’ve heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy
You’re bright, you’re strong, you know the right from wrong
At least to some degree
You’re wise, you’re tough, you’ve heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy



‘Peace’

Peace will come to me
Peace will come to me
I’m leaving bitterness behind
This time I’m cleaning up my mind
There is no space for the regrets
I will remember to forget

Just look at me
I am walking love incarnate
Look at the frequencies of which I vibrate
I’m going to light up the world
Peace will come to me
Peace will come to me
I’m leaving anger in the past
With all the shadows that it cast
There is radar in my heart
I should have trusted from the start
Just look at me
I am a living act of holiness
Giving all the positive virtues that I possess
I’m going to light up the world
Peace will come to me
Just wait and see
Peace will come to me
It’s meant to be
Peace will come to me
Just wait and see
Peace will come to me
It’s inevitability



‘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
Wasted all my time
I mean another world
A mean in another place
I could use a little company
A little kindness to 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’ve been waiting patiently
Come back Come back to me
I’ve been waiting here patiently
Life will long wishes
In the heart of you
And took to reality
Only blindness can hide a way
I could use little richened
A little kindness to go a long way
Weeks turn into months
Months turn into years
Reaching the same conclusions
Gathering up the fear
Leaving the same delusion
Gathering up the fear
Gathering up the fear(3x)
Come back (5x)



‘Spacewalker’
(Instrumental)



‘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,
If all 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
Well no-ones hurt and no-ones cursed and no one needs to hide
And everything is almost perfect
Everything is almost right
There are never any conflicts
There are never any fights



‘Miles Away / The Truth Is’

It’s one of those conversations
We’ve we’ve had them before
The ones that leave you empty
And wanting for more
Your eyes they tell me something
That I understand
Your eyes they hold the truth
And the truth is:
You’re miles away 3x
Excuse me for my hesitation
‘ave i met you before
Your face seems so familiar
And longing for more
Your eyes they tell me something
That i understand
Your eyes they hold the truth
And a truth is
You’re miles away [3x]
With all your superstitions
And empty lines
I could be just like you
Withdrawn but alive
Life it has its limitations
We all have our needs
Love could be the only answer
It lies underneath
Your eyes they tell me something
That i understand
Your eyes they hold the truth
And a truth is
You’re miles away [3x]



‘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



‘Corrupt’

I could corrupt you
In a heart beat
You think your so special
Think your so sweet
What are you trying don’t even tempt me
Soon you’ll be crying unwishing you dreamt of be
You’ll be calling out my name
When you need someone to blame

I can corrupt you
It would be easy
Watching you suffer
God, it would please me
I wanna touch you with my little finger
I know it will crush you my memory would linger
You’d be crying out in pain
Begging me to play my games
I can corrupt you
It will be ugly
They could sedate you
But i wanna touch you with my hands on your hips
It would be too much to
Place my lips on your lips
You’ll be calling out my name
Begging me to play my games
