VAPOURIZE

GET MP3


Closed ambitions,
circuit t.v.
Annihilations,
can you hear me?
Don't think I’m in love with you baby
This ain’t your time
Would love to see you baby
Vapourise before my eyes 

( chorus ) 
Got you
– I got you by the balls
Hit me
– with all you got
Lets see
– if you’ll get up this time
Always gonna get you by the balls every one more time 

You are here now,
time is right
You can run on but,
can you hide?
The devil screams the angel
He gave her a little surprise
Would love to see you baby
Vapourise before my eyes 

( chorus ) 
Got you
– I got you by the balls
Hit me
– with all you got
Lets see
– if you’ll get up this time
Always gonna get you by the balls every one more time 

Sex and anger in your eyes
Devil’s temple by your side
You can go on say aloud my name
You got nobody else to blame
Would love to see you woman
Vapourise before my eyes 

( chorus ) 
Got you
– I got you by the balls
Hit me
– with all you got
Lets see
– if you’ll get up this time
Always gonna get you by the balls every one more time 

Is this you world, is this your fraternity,
The blanket of you emotional insecurities
When you look up talk to the sky,
Just who THE FUCK DO YOU THINK AM I!

RHYTHM `N BLUES

GET REAL AUDIO .... GET MP3


Think it was a place not so far from here
a corner of a blues town
The band was loud and the music louder
wasn't a soul around

Thought you'll play the blues
if you had the rhythm
Forgot one thing
You gotta play it all night long

Your rhythm don't flow..
Your rhythm don't flow..

Your rhythm don't flow
Your rhythm don't blend
Your rhythm only sounds like a one night stand

Had been a while since I went for a stroll
down to my favourite blues bar
I met this red head with a pink guitar
and this is what I told him in the Happy hour

Thought you'll play the blues
if you had the rhythm
Forgot one thing
You gotta play it all night long

Your rhythm don't flow..
Your rhythm don't flow..

Your rhythm don't flow
Your rhythm don't blend
Your rhythm only sounds like a one night stand

Took some time for me to figure it out
what the dude was all about
He said will you teach me to play blues guitar
and I think I said aloud

Thought you'll play the blues
if you had the rhythm
Forgot one thing
You gotta play it all night long

Your rhythm don't flow..
Your rhythm don't flow..

Your rhythm don't flow
Your rhythm don't blend
Your rhythm only sounds like a one man band

Your rhythm don't flow
Your rhythm don't blend
Your rhythm only sounds like a one night stand

TILL I'M NO ONE AGAIN

GET REAL AUDIO .... GET MP3


 

She wonders like a little child, who hasn't seen the rain
Gently will she tell you that she's scared
A lonely child, a bird of sorrow
is all she can see,
'cause people came and changed her as they pleased

She doesn't laugh, knows not to cry
indifference is her name
Sleeps quietly in some corner of her world
She'd wake up in the morning and then she'd kiss the flowers again
Sometimes thinks of people who're not the same

** Lying to yourself
you know she'll fly away
if only you knew what's right
you'd walk away ... no ...

till i'm no one again...

And all the things I think I did,
to make her smile again,
worked a little while then disappeared.
But still I'll try to catch her eye, and tell her that I care,
wonder if she even knows that I'm there?

** Lying to yourself
you know she'll fly away
if only you knew what's right
you'd walk away ... no ...

till i'm no one again...

Await the light
enmbrace the darkness
and scream out to the sky,
watching life pass before me,
And the world I have inside,
I've seen the world, lived it all,
Seen it thru' my eyes,
The blinding shades of laughter,
I can see here as I lie,
As here I lie......

.......HERE I'M NO ONE AGAIN

BUT IT RAINED

GET REAL AUDIO .... GET MP3


Wrapped in a polythene, tucked away safe in my mind
a little goodbye, maybe, or just a passing smile

The birds fly away to the sky still searching for home
a bunch o' paper flowers, or a little child left all alone
Can somebody hear me, I'm screaming from so far away
morning who'll calm you, the evening's eclipsed again

*Well does life get any better
more yesterday than today
How I thought the sun would shine tommorow
But it rained...

They justified the cause for which Daddy might give up his life
,it's been so long, so long a time but still I miss Daddy at night
The ache is long gone but the never keeps staring at me
the waters in the seas are high, and all the sand castles have drowned

*Well does life get any better
more yesterday than today
How I thought the sun would shine tommorow
But it rained...

GONNA GET IT


You can hide away from the devil
you can find a way to chose
you can keep your senses ticking
but it aint so hard to lose

Quietly throttle up my senses
recruits the sleeping mind
playing games with the game cold hearted
and things I've left behind

You've got to hold on to somethings from a thousand years
A million houses burning to give me pain and the taste of fear

* GONNA GET IT YOU GONNA GET IT ...........

Here in the softness of salvation
somewhwere I lost my pride
close my eyes and see the world within and
open to a hopeful mind

I've been watching in the pages of history
people getting away with crime
Innocence is lost in a moment
not in passage of time

You've got to hold on to somethings from a thousand years...

* GONNA GET IT YOU GONNA GET IT ....

When that something started going I had no one but myself....

* GONNA GET IT YOU GONNA GET IT ...
