Songs Lyrics



Free of Judgement

Warning, disarming, unharming

Letting you mind go free, of anger, no danger

Now it's time to listen


Having an open mind is best if you can find

a way to hold you ego so leave it behind

The information's right, you make it wrong, a lie

Judging it all with your eyes, prejudice must die


The faces and places, showing you how to be

receptive, connective, when it's time to listen


Free of judgement, Listen free of judgement


Listening free of judgement

Have an open mind

It's a bliss, oh yeah


Where We Go

It's in my life, it's in my soul

I hear the sound play high and low


We were born inside this nation

We live by this rocking scene

Living years in a love's creation

Playing music is in my genes


It's in my life, it's in my soul

I hear the sound play high and low

We have this dream, it's so extreme

We play around where we go


Now you know what we like to do

Now you feel it's inside of you

Have no fear in this destination

There's a future for me and you



Imagination

kiss me good night

I read all of the lines from this book of dreams


when dark becomes light 

there's action inside your own mind

in flashes that glow the stories unfold

my imagination flows in time

my imagination lovely lies


this morning the birds

are singing all the words from this book of dreams


Move Ahead

Is this real? Or is it fake?

Tomorrow kills the truth of yesterday

The time division is the best mistake

Because we're trendy or not

We're making who we are

Some changes aren't bad

We don't move back

We move ahead


Is this new? Or is it old?

We are the thoughts of time, a past we told

to generations on, a new unfold

Because we're squareheads or not

We're making who we are

Some changes aren't bad

We don't move back

We move ahead


Let's talk about today, you'll see just what I mean

The future calls for many changes

We're tied to chains of unhearted greed

We'll be fine in our lives without you


Come children you will be loved

No danger and chances to grow

Do your art and make a start

Make a new start



Stupid

I must confess I love this girl

I can't deny I want this girl

But she is never alone, she's never alone


I want to ask her out tonight

But this idea is not so bright

Because she's never alone, she's never alone


I go out and maybe I'm lucky enough to find

Some time to meet you away from these guys

I'm a stupid standing in a line


But she is never alone, she's never alone


I go out and maybe I'm lucky enough to find

Some time to meet you away from these guys

I'm a stupid standing in a line

Just a stupid waiting for his time

Love disputed by many names

Just a stupid believes this game




Really Good

So then I came to this gig

with many bands that I dig

No mainstream, just indie rock bands

Variety is their best

like butterflies slow and fast

you never know what's gonna come next

ah ah ah all of the bands are really good


We have good music to please

in many concerts like these

a big surprise like making new friends

Variety is their best

like butterflies slow and fast

you never know what's gonna come next

ah ah ah all of the bands are really good


It's surprising, no denying

They want to rock the world like they say

It's inside me, let's just party

They need support so then they will stay

SONG LYRICS


They Never Sleep


They just never let me do the things I want, I cry and weep

Even if I wait the night to come about, they never sleep


A vampire and beings I've never seen

Agonizing mystery from a teenage film

Dominating masters of eternal creep, they never sleep


They just never let me go outside the door, like dogs and sheep

Even if I beg you please just let me out, I'm yours to keep


A skull on fire and beings I've never seen

Agonizing mystery from a teenage film

Dominating masters of eternal creep, they never sleep


Maybe the sun will turn and their skins will burn

Maybe the masters die and I'm free to fly

Close your eyes, close your eyes



The Legend of Bloody Mary


Candle in the hand once again you go upstairs

In the mirror you will see a future partner comes to be


Say the name you know and this loving face will show

Go on grab your luck and speak and you'll find the one you seek


How many times must I pronounce your name

I lost the count the magic is not the same

Well thirteen times they say makes perfect sense, oh Bloody Mary


I call your name so many times

Come on Bloody Mary



Beside Your Steps


Are you gonna leave me sufferring?

Are you gonna let me die in vain?

Are you sure you don't need me at all?

Am I just a thing about to fall?


When you look beside your steps

Do you see me?

When you look beside your steps

Do you see me?

Can you see me?




Head in the Clouds


Just because I'm going away from home

It doesn't mean I can relate to life, you told me

I got my head in the clouds

As I start to walk along the road

I remember you said son, just fly, you know me

I got my head in the clouds


Living is easy, they can't hurt me

I know my way through the crowd

Love is inside the ones who hold you

I got my head in the clouds


Bed, there's food and stuff all over my bed

And it's crazy 'cause we're playing instead

In this room we have a party all wet

We have fun and like “we don't care”

A delicious dinner we go fetch

Boys and girls, we have a dream that is best

The idea is we go and head west

Everybody goes free

You know we all can make it

Life will be just fine and I can face it


Living is easy, they can't hurt me

I know my way through the crowd

Love is inside the ones who hold you

I got my head in the clouds

Mother you taught me things about life

And I love you

So, we all go, explore the world



Ritchie's Party


So Ritchie called for celebration

He invited so many folks from all around

And his party was a big sensation

It was midnight when the creatures broke the sound


You got worms under your pools

You greedy nasty fools

Just count the money now

And worms coming off the ground

So Ritchie called extermination

And they found so many pests of every kind

He called in his friends for a conversation

But the ones you thought were good leave you behind



Sugar Loaf


I have memories of a princess being born

She was never here but this is what she would do


Hey sugar loaf, where is my money?

You hid it under the carpet somehow

Hey sugar loaf, you think it's funny

To hide things from other people now


She's so lovely, the queen of pranks here at home

Unexistant, I imagine things she would do


Hey sugar loaf, my easter bunny

You hid the car keys right under the couch

Hey sugar loaf, you think it's funny

We need the keys so we drive back to town


I feel a little sad, I wish that she would be true

But it's not so bad, I'm sure that she's coming soon




Reset


You told me something has been troubling your mind

You say the past is coming back, you can't hide

The way you feel about the shit you have done

Many regrets begin to torture and burn

Reset, you need a reset


So you need to calm down your heart

The regrets can surely break you apart

You can hear the inner voices that go, no,no,no,no

You just need to let go of your past

Like us all you simply did your best

Love yourself and clean up this mess, yes to success



Such an Easy Lover


It doesn't matter where my baby goes

We talk just fine

There's no complication

Laughing at whatever comes we go

We feel alright

We go across the nation


I don't go alone, got somebody to come, my easy lover

Let me sing a song about the places we know, you're gonna love it


Such an easy lover

We found a place to be

I'm so lucky to have her

And she's glad to have me



Dirty Lucy


She's been around for many years

She's been around the world in time

The ones she met were office holders

Dirty Lucy lived in crime

She lived in crime, a hot criminal


She told me all about her felonies

Divert money is the scam

The governor may use her villany

Dirty Lucy owns the man

She's the man, yes she is

Album Lyrics



YOU CAN'T STOP ME NOW

CHASE IS ON ME, ALL CAN BE RIGHT
LISTEN TO THE WARNING, CALL HIM A LIE
CALL ME ON, COME TO YOUR MAN
YOU DON'T WANNA SEE HER, RUNNING FROM A GANG

LEAVE IT ON ME, HOLD IT LET ME TRY
EVERYBODY IS BROKEN, I CAN MAKE THEM CRY
HOLD ME ON, HOLD TO YOUR MAN
CLOSE YOUR EYES SUGAR, I'M KICKING SOME ASS

I AM A STRONG MAN
I'M GONNA STRIKE YOU OUT

DON'T WANNA KNOW
YOU'RE MESSING WITH MY GIRL

I WILL BEAT YOU
YOU CAN'T STOP ME NOW



STROKE BACK WOMAN

SHE'S LIKE A SUPER WOMAN
AND NEVER LETS ME DOWN
SHE ASKING ME TO HOLD OUT
THE GAME CONTINUES NOW

WE ARE SO GOOD TOGETHER
MUCH MORE THAN OKAY
YOU NEVER ASK TO HURRY
IT'S LOVE IN EVERY WAY

OHHH YOU MAKE ME FEEL
SUCH A PASSION LIKE A SPINNING WHEEL
OHHH YOU MAKE ME SHINE
OH GIRL WHEN YOU HOLD ME TIGHT

YOUR BODY IS JUST THE RIGHT SET
YOU LOOK THIS WAY TO ME
I FEEL YOU LIKE A WONDER
HONEY YOU CAN SEE

WE ARE SO GOOD TOGETHER
MUCH MORE THAN OKAY
YOU NEVER ASK TO HURRY
IT'S LOVE IN EVERY WAY

YEAH YEAH YEAH STROKE BACK WOMAN




DESTINY

How does it feel not to fall in love?
It makes you afraid and uptight
Rhythm and boys need a body talk
Music and girls have it all
I’m bad bad bad, bad to the bone but she says loves me
I’m mad mad mad, mad in a song sung by voices from me

You know you gotta like
All the things you will find in living
If you’re lonely just light the fire
It was meant to be
You know you gotta love
What is good and who makes you see it
If you’re lonely ignite the fire
It was meant to be
It was destiny

How does it feel to meet goldielocks?
I see you’re ok and all fine
Remember to seek around the blocks
Music and love at the sight



TAKE HEART

TAKE HEART ON ME NOW , ALRIGHT
WE COULDN'T SPEAK CHANGES LEFT BEHIND
COME TALK NO HELL
TAKE ME OUT OF DEATH
TAKE HEART BELIEVE ME

TAKE HEART, THIS TIME (you know), TAKE HEART

HEY, I MISS YOU
I MISS WITH ALL OF MY HEART
HEY, I WANT YOU
I NEED TO HOLD YOU NOW
HEY I MISS YOU
I MISS YOU ALL THE TIME
HEY I WANT YOU
I WANT YOU BACK IN MY LIFE

TAKE HEART, TAKE HEART
NO TIME FOR PRETENDS (TAKE HEART)
I NEED SOMEBODY, NO LIE (TAKE HEART)

WHO NEEDS A LOVE, WHEN IT HAS TO BE OVER? IT KILLS ME
TAKE HEART (then)
TAKE HEART (that's all)
I'LL BE THE ONE THAT YOU NEED


HEY, I MISS YOU
I MISS WITH ALL OF MY HEART
HEY, I WANT YOU
I NEED TO HOLD YOU NOW
HEY I MISS YOU
I MISS YOU ALL THE TIME
HEY I LOVE YOU
I REALLY LOVE YOU



UNRAVEL

Yeah, yeah
My problem, I saw in the countryside my troubles
Hold water, I'm trying to say I need some relief
So just travel, travel, it's better to have some time to see new places

Go out, my dear we need to go

I gotta a feeling that something wants me to travel
Something in the air just wants to unravel

God knows, god knows, god knows you let me down
This problem, the problem is you, stop to hold me now
oh my troubles, solutions start to show

So free me, my dear we need to go

I gotta a feeling that something wants me to travel
Something in the air just wants to unravel

I know, amazing treasures I see
Thanks a lot, for everything you did for me


SECRET SHELTER

I want to show what I believe in
and I want, and I want, to be close to stars that light up my way
I know your body's got a secret
and this time, all around, come see the flashing star that lights the day

all this try, goes alright
I know my wish will not come near, this time

Things are just coming out in pieces
go around, come and watch, all my hopes are here, and they begin to stay
right now they're close to being released
and I want, and I want, to invade this shelter and start to play



BY THE FIRE

Offers to work down by the shore
Guys on the beach will hire
There I met friends I adore
Sitting by the fire

Talking stuff next to the flames
Showing no doubts and no shames

City itself was fun to be
Honesty I admire
Rented a place down by the sea
Views that I desire

Soon I was playing the game
Parties were really insane

So let us be a mixing of our minds
Looking for the secrets we desire
We soon become a part of all this love

Step downstairs and we can soon
Watch the sand empire
Running too sweet, all afternoon
At night we light a fire

Sounds so crazy to you
Protecting is what we do
We gather trash, we help around
Angels from this lovely dreamland


ABNORMAL FANTASY

Everytime you talk, there's nothing said
It's human trash, just human guess

And I stop to think there's nothing there
And we have to take our memories back
So sad, so sad

But I like to think that we can share
And I like to see good people there

Can you see the future in our hands?
Do you fear the point of no turning back?

All I see are tragic minds of lyrics unsaid
But I hope that my fantasy becomes a love grant
a love grant, a love grant

And I want to give my garantee
Cause it's time to give you my love treat
it's my treat, it's my garantee yeah

Don't believe in all that is said
Don't believe the reason of man



DON'T DON'T DON'T

I open this door and what do I see?
a lovely princess stares at me
I open the other door and what do I see?
the ugly creatures, I've ever seen, it is saying
“don't you want me my love?”

I do not want you, I'm not insane
Don't want no creature, and such disgrace
you look at me and say, you want my love
but I'm no prisioner, I hate this voice

don't don't don't you want me?
don't don't don't you love me? Go away
How can I love you, you look like shit
what is your purpose? Why are you here?
don't don't don't you want me?
don't don't don't you love me? Go away
You don't belong here, not in this world
I can not help you, go save your soul

don't, don't, don't

I do not want you, I'm not so stupid
Don't want no demon, in hell you're a cupid
you look at me and say, I must take you home
I'm no gate keeper, I hate this tone




FACES TO THE GROUND

remember times of war infection
they made us fear the nuclear bomb

no use to fly away
don't bother hiding underground
the brutal shaking of destruction
will end it all at the sound

lick it, kneel over boots
power makes us slaves
so faces to the ground

And now we live a different moment
we can not really call it peace
the games of power continue
the people gets no relief

we work all the time
and don't think of the future
you say the world is mine
we can't face the abuser

remember times of war infection
they made us fear the nuclear bomb
no use to fly away on jet planes
don't bother hiding underground
the brutal shaking of destruction
will end it all at the sound
And now we live a different moment
still with faces to the ground



METAMORPH

WHAT GOES ON INSIDE YOUR EMPTY SPACE?
TRY TO LEAVE IT UNDER TIME AND PACE
I USED TO KNOW YOU TRAVELED IN THE NON STOP
DISCOVERING LIFE YOU WANT TO MAKE ONE DAY
OH METAMORPH

IT'S LIKE YOU KNOW YOUR BACK IS IN A TRIAL
LEAVING DOWN YOUR FIGHTS BUT YOU ARE RIGHT
BECAUSE HERE IN THE SILENCE LIGHT IS COMING
BUT I AM DISCOVERING THE SIGN
OH METAMORPH

SINGING SONGS ABOUT THIS DAY
SHOOTING OUT YOUR RISING FAR AWAY
READING ALL THE WRITINGS IN THE LETTER
SEEING YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE TO SAVE

LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW I SEE ALL THAT WAS MIXED BEFORE
LOOKING AT THE SEASONS I CAN'T STOP TIMES I LIVED BEFORE

LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW I SEE ALL THAT WAS MIXED BEFORE
LOOKING AT THE SEASONS I CAN'T STOP TIME, STOP TIME, NOT, NOT, NOT

OH METAMORPH







PRISTINE

fooling around, every free time's on good
you know you're gonna meet your time
and tonight you're gonna blow the hood

you gotta live fast times
but some of you people are hard and odd
your ways believe my girl, are hard and odd
you know you got the chances to be

say, don't you want to be pristine
don't you want to leave your sins
better start living it up

you know you got the chances to be pristine
