There Is No God
So you're a self proclaimed messiah
Or maybe a blasphemes liar
A clever hypnotic hoax
A hallowed heretic coax
Who tells these stories so old
No, never the same twice told
Speaking in distorted thruths
I see that thomas wants some proof
Did you come to heal the sick
With one more magician's trick
Ye generation seeks a sign
While blind keeps leading the blind

So you say there is no god
Just a clever man's charade
A once upon a fairy tales fraud
Has God made man or man made god

There is no god

Confused thy talk in parables
Accused thou walk in parallels
A simple game of simon says
This month's flavor sciences
Today's fact, tomorrow's fiction
Leave the rest to superstition
If knowledge comes from learning books
Wisdom comes from discerning looks
A fool that says there is no god
Don't feel for that sorry sod
Who needs proof then he'll believe
I wonder if he's been deceived

There is no godback to top
Tell Me Something I Don't Know
Sun going up,
Making it's rounds
It keeps on moving,
Painting the town
Before you know it,
She's sinking low
So tell me something . . .

Something I don't already know
I don't know?

Toward the south,
Then turning north
Whirlwind spinning,
On a circular course
The answer my friend,
Returns to blow
So tell me something . . .

Something I don't already know
I don't know?
Tell me something
I don't know?

As for the wise men who pursue
Their knowledge
Same as the fool, free falling
Prey to folly
Can only one fate befall
Them both
So tell me something . . .

Chorus

If every song been sung,
Under the sun
What's left for me then,
Eat drink and have fun
It must go on, as for the show
So tell me something . . .back to top
Hip Today
You'll be gone tomorrow
You'll be gone tomorrow
Gone tomorrow

You're preoccupied
With the latest fashion
Hip today, hip today
With wide open eyes
On the next big thing
You can cash in
Hip today, hip today

No never contrived
It's an overnight sensation
A clever disguise
That hides all of your
Pretension
Sally's selling out
Her seashells for souls
Hope I don't die
Before I get old

Hip today
You'll be gone tomorrow
You'll be gone tomorrow
Gone tomorrow

Dancing in your head
Visions of rave reviews
Hip today, hip today
Believing all that's read
Conceiving another guru
Hip today, hip today

Having made your bed
Falling short of filling shoes
You've been left for dead
'cause there's always
Someone new
Sally's selling out
Her seashells for souls
Hope I don't die
Before I get oldback to top
Naked
So you want me to take it off
Just to see what's
Underneath my cloth
I'll show you I'm every
Inch a man
Measure all that you
Think you can

I'm more than what
Meets the eye
Flesh 'n' blood is
Often a white lie
By the cover you misjudge
The book
Open your mind and take
Another look

Naked, and I'm unashamed
Naked, with no one to blame
Naked, ya you want the truth
Naked, here's my birthday suit
Naked, naked, naked, naked

I pretend to be not anyone
Except me and my imperfections
There is nothing i
Expect of you
That you wouldn't
Expect of me, too

Chorus

Will you excuse me for my ignorance
'cause I can see only one
Difference
Those of you who seek to find
While all the others choose
To walk 'n' talk blindback to top
Midnight Express
(instrumental)back to top
Leave Me Alone
As for this song
I'll set the mood
There's nothing wrong
Prefer solitude
Alone to think
Of what I don't know
The deeper I sink
The further I'll go

Nothing to fear
No need to hide
I'm already there
Came in from outside
Safe in my nest
Home sweet home
No invited guests
I want to be alone

Leave me alone
Leave me alone
I wish you would
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
I just want to be alone

It's better this way
No one will get hurt
If you stay away
I won't lose my shirt
If I have become
Too defensive
I'm not the one
You have to live with

Chorus

I want to be, I want to be
I want to be, alone

Don't feel sorry
It's not your concern
Only the lonely
Are the ones who get burned
Safe in my nest
Home sweet home
No invited guests
I want to be aloneback to top
No Respect
Respect,
Always everybody looking for some
Respect,
Who do you think you're gonna get it from
Respect,
Anybody here deserving of none
Respect,
Tell me what makes you think
You're not the one

No respect, no respect none
No respect, no respect none
No respect, no respect none
No respect, no respect none

Respect,
Why be concerned with
Public adulation
Respect,
Pat on the back crying
For attention
Respect,
Finding out what it really
Means to me
Respect,
Honor comes only after
Humilityback to top
Shadow Boxing
Last round
Looks like I'm in for a fight
Knocked down
There is nowhere left to hide
Stick 'n' move
When I try to run away
Old one two
I only end up face to face

Mirror mirror getting clearer

It's just me and my shadow
Dancing round the ring
I try to fight it
But then how can I win
When I'm only shadow boxing

Time out
I'm looking for a
Standing eight
No doubt
My inside has come out to play
Bob 'n' weave
It's conscious of my
Every move
Been deceived
Can no longer ignore the truth

Mirror mirror getting clearer
Split decision blur my visionback to top
Unconditionally
So tell me what can I do
That you couldn't see through
From the very start
There is only one thing
Yet to come from my heart

Loving you, unconditionally
Loving you, unconditionally
That's what I want to be
What you are to me

Can you see why it's so hard
For me to break apart
From all the things I hold
Closer to a heart
That has grown, far too cold

Loving you, unconditionally
Something new
To a heart yet not free
That's what I want to be
What you are to me

And though it seems impossible
When both of my hands are full
That's the only condition
That keeps me
From loving you. . .back to top
