MEDIA MANIAC

Don’t we want the same thing?? We want love and peace get down on our knees
We need to pay our bills and explore our skills
Reputation clean, you know what I mean
Don’t we want the same thing?

I know you want to talk to me About my life and how I can be free
How I could survive this cancer thing
all the drugs that I’ve used, isn’t that it?
Are you normal now?

But I want to talk about the Spirit and love. How people can survive and how they can grow.
Talk about my songs like baby dolls
About the lyrics – the struggling inside.
-but that bores you. Yeah yeah eah

You say goodbye and thanx for the meet I see your story in the paper next week
You say: It might be behind the latest news
then it’s easy for the music to loose
-cause you’re so old

So how can I ever tell the truth to my child, When you want the storms and I want to shine.
How can I talk about my biggest loss,
When you want to put it into some tiny box?
Tiny Box

I AM THE TARGET SITTING DUCK AND YOU ARE THE SCAPEGOAT MEDIA MANIAC
new stuff – yeah yeah yeah

KISS YOUR FEAR KILL YOUR DARLINGS
KICK THE BAD
KEEP ON SHINING

WHY GOD

Every single person have their beauty. All life has dignity
You fell the fear is burning through you
I know why you are silent

Why God , all this doubt Stay with me and set me free
Without you I can not live
Forgive me

You ask The Angels who to believe in They say believe in yourself
I read your mind when you are walking
I know why you are crying

Why do I smile God When I am sad inside
Why do I cry God
When I am mad inside
Why do I hide God
When You tell me to be
Brave and proud ??

If this was your last day you will finish strong you will stand right here and sing your song
If this was your last day you will do the same
you will tell your children to live without the shame
If this was your last day you will sit with me
Look at the stars – how beautiful they are
If this is your last day – I tell you right in
That Jesus died for somebody else’s sin
And the people who is fighting in his name
Is the people who should suffer and live with the pain
If this was your last day, you will sing your song
Finish strong
Finish Strong

I reach out my hand and catch you when you are falling Life hurts again and again
I see you are crawling, I see you are falling
Forgive, live and entertain

Why do I cry God When I am mad inside
Why do I hide God
When You tell me to be
Brave and proud !?

LIPSTICK KILLER

Here’s a song and I made it for you It’s not that complicated that’s true
But it is for you – it’s for you

Lipstick Killer You Can Talk Stiletto heels
Can hardly walk
Read My Lips
I don’t want you

And when they talk about my singing-voice You do like them, you have no your choice
You say: She don’t sing like Aguilera or Pavarotti
When you’ve got trouble and you’re feeling blue
You come to me, that’s the through yeah
When you’re feeling good you choose the nice ones

So I’ve made this song for you it’s made in love and in anger too
I lick my wounds in this way
Sing my self made song today
with my own voice

Who is counting, who is trusting who Life is running by – and it hurts you too.
You don’t want me and I don’t want you

BABE GONE WILD

Mama’s gone mad cause her Babe gone wild Don’t know what to do with her crazy child
She’s out of control, she might kill a guy
Makes a big mess, in a big big race
Baby’s twenty years where she walks
She was twelve when she started using drugs
She’s a lonely left child full of fear
Silver ring in the other ear

He e e ey she is lonely Alone in the rain, in the sunshine
He e e ey she is lonely

BABY IS USING DRUGS WHEN WILL THIS EVER STOP?

One of these days she was on a spree Needed some cash and she wanted to see
how far she could go, with a knife and a gun
she robbed a store and went on the run
Her clothes are in rags, she has no fear
A knife in her hand and her eyes full of tears
She’s an angry young kid, banging the wall
High on dope – losing control

BLACK NIGHT

A new day in the making, slowly enters my room.
Yet the day belongs to no one
I can still see the moon
I pray for all my cravings
A cold day in November
Naked feet on frozen ground
See how much my lust remember

The man I love is not here the one I want to be near (near)
the one that lights my fire
I am alone with my dark desire

Refrain: Black Night, I feel you arms holding me / oh so tight
and then, the image of your face is / here again !
You walk, you linger in the room like a / silent scream
You are, but still not here, you are just / in my dream

Dark carpet / covering the city I see vivid / images so clear
The adventure is here for me
A phantom / matErializes
yet again to me
Returning to me / a light in the dark
A faint brush / on my chin
Where are my forgotten mem’ries
When will you ever return?

BEFORE THE ROOSTER CROWS

We target any loner, Outsiders all beware!
Word of mouth crawls down the street.
Look! There goes another.
We’ll scoop down on our prey.
It’s your colour that we hate

It’s your mission that we fear We do it simply – we make it clear

Before the rooster crows we all will let you down. Before the rooster crows your friends are never known.
Before the rooster crows the truth will not be shown.
Before the rooster crows we all will let you down.

Any fault will be exposed Outsiders all beware!
We can change you to a looser.
If you dare to raise your head.
We can keep you down and hurt you.
The angry mob will soon desert you!
