Vertigo
Excellent Song

Unos dos tres catorce!

Lights go down, itís dark
The jungle is your head
Canít rule your heart
A feeling is so much stronger than
A thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
It canít be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello hello
Iím at a place called Vertigo
Itís everything I wish I didnít know
Except you give me something I can feel, feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle as the
Boys play rock and roll
They know they canít dance
At least they knowÖ.

I canít stand the beats
Iím asking for the cheque
The girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music
Oh oh oh oh

Hello hello
Iím at a place called Vertigo
Itís everything I wish I didnít know
But you give me something I can feel, feel


Check mated
Oh yeah
Hours of funÖ

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours

All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want and no-one gets hurtÖ.

Hello hello
Weíre at a place called Vertigo
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something

I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how, how to kneelÖ

Yeah yeah yeah yeahback to top
Miracle Drug
I want a trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To hear the things you haven't said
And see what you might see

I want to hear you when you call
Do you feel anything at all?
I want to see your thoughts take shape
And walk right out

Freedom has a scent
Like the top of a new born baby's head

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've seen enough I'm not giving up
On a miracle drug

Of science and the human heart
There is no limit
There is no failure here sweetheart
Just when you quit

I am you and you are mine
Love makes nonsense of space
And time ... will disappear
Love and logic keep us clear

Reason is on our side
Love

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle drug, a miracle drug

Oh God, I need your help tonight

Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear your voice
It's whispering
In science and
In medicine
I was a stranger
You took me in

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, for a miracle drug
Miracle, miracle drugback to top
Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own
Though
You think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I but that's alright
We're the same soul

I don't need
I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can you hear me when I sing
You're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera's in me

Where are we now?
Still gotta let you know
A house doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you who makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your ownback to top
Love and Peace or Else
Lay down
Lay down
Lay your sweet lovely on the ground
Lay your love on the track
We're gonna break the monster's back
Yes we are
Lay down your treasure
Lay it down now brother
You don't have time
For a jealous lover

As you enter this life
I pray you depart
With a wrinkled face
And a brand new heart

I don't know if I can take it
I'm not easy on my knees
Here's my heart you can break it

I need some release, release, release

We need
Love and peace
Love and peace

Lay down
Lay down your guns
All your daughters of Zion
All your Abraham sons

I don't know if I can make it
I'm not easy on my knees
Here's my heart and you can break it
I need some release, release, release

We need
Love and peace
Love and peace

Baby don't fight
We can talk this thing through
It's not a big problem
It's just me and you
You can call or I'll phone
The TV is still on
But the sound is turned down
And the troops on the ground
Are about to dig in

And I wonder where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Love and peaceback to top
City of Blinding Lights
The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then, than I do now

Neon hearts dayglo eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They're advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you're not around
And I'm getting ready to leave the ground

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don't look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises
The camera can't see

I've seen you walk unafraid
I've seen you in the clothes you made
Can you saw the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?

And I miss you when you're not around
And I'm getting ready to leave the ground

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Time, time
Wonít leave me as I am
But time wonít take the boy out of this man

Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steel
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel, luckilyback to top
All Because of You
I was born a chil of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
Had left me no illusion

I saw you in the curve of the moon
In a shadow cast across my room
You had me in my tune
When I just heard confusion

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am...I am

I like the sound of my own voice
I didn't give anyone else a choice
An intellectual tortoise
racing with your bullet train

Some people get squashed crossed in the tracks
Some people get high rises on their backs
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am...I am

I'm alive
I'm being born
I just arrived
I'm at the door
Of the place I started from
And I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I amback to top
A Man and a Woman
Little sister
Don't you worry about a thing today
Take the heat from the sun
And little sister
I know that everything is not ok
But you're like honey on my tongue

True love never can be rent
But only true love can keep beauty innocent

I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
No I could never take a chance
'Cos I could never understand
The mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

You can run from love
And if it's really love it wil find you
Catch you by the heel
But you can't be numb for love
The only pain is to feel nothing at all
How can I hurt when I'm holding you?

And I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a mand and a woman
You're the one there's no-one else
It makes me wanna lose myself
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

Brown eyed girl across the street
On rue Saint Divine
I thought this is the one for me
But she was already mine
You were already mine

Little sister
I've been sleeping in the street again
Like a stray dog
Little sister
I've been trying to feel complete again
But you're gone and so is God

The soul needs beauty for a soul mate
When the soul wants, the soul waits

No I could never take a chance
of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
For love and sex and faith and fear
And all the things that keep us here
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

How can I hurt when I'm holding you?back to top
Crumbs from Your Table
From the brightest star
Comes the blackest hole
You had so much to offer
Why did you offer your soul?
I was there for you baby
When you needed my help
Would you deny for others?
Would you demand for yourself?

Cool down mama, cool off
Cool down mama, cool off

You speak of signs and wonders
I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I'm waiting on the crumbs for your table

You were pretty as a picture
It was all there to see
Then your face caught up
With your psychology
With a mouth full of teeth
You ate all your friends
And you broke every heart
Thinking every heart mends

And you speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table

Where you live should not decide
Whether you live or whether you die
Three to a bed
Sister Ann she said
Dignity passes by

And you speak of signs and wonders
I need something other
I would believe if I was able
I'm waiting on the crumbs from your tableback to top
One Step Closer
I'm round the corner from anything that's real
Am I crossed the roads of hope?
I'm under the bridge and a rip tide's taken
Everything I call my own

One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing

I'm on an island in a busy intersection
Can't go forward now I can't turn back
Can't see the future it's getting away from me
I just watch the taillights glowing

One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
Knowing
Knowing

I'm hanging out to dry with my old clothes
Fingers still red with the prick of an old rose
Well a heart that hurts is a heart that beats
Can you hear the drummer slowing

One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
To knowing
To knowing
To knowingback to top
Original of the Species
Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity
Some people got way too much confidence baby, baby

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it, no
Oh no, oh no

Sugar come on, show your soul
You've been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it
Everywhere you go you shout it
Oh my my

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want you some more, I want you some moreback to top
Yahweh
Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still Iím waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Donít make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahewh, Yahweh
Still Iím waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it breakback to top
Fast Cars
My cell is ringing
No I.D
I Need To know whos calling

My gardens overgrown
i go out on my belly crawling
i got CCTV,Pornography,CNBC
i got the nightly news
to get to know the enemy

all i want is a picture of you
all i want is to get right next to you
all i want is your face in a locket
picture in my pocket
i take a pill to stop it

i know these fast cars
will do me no good

i'm going no where
where am i,it is alot of fun
they're in the desert to dismantle an atomic bomb
i watch them channel hop
check the stocks
i'm in detox
i want the lot of what you've got
if what you've got can make this stop

all i want is a picture of you
all i want is to get right next to you
all i want is your face in a locket
picture in my pocket
i take a pill to stop it

i know these fast cars
will do me no good

Dont you worry about your mind
Dont you worry about your mind
Dont you worry about your mind
Dont you worry about your mind

You should worry about the day
that the pain it goes away
you know i miss mine sometimes

There is fiction
that will truly fit the situation
i'm documenting every detail
every conversation
i'm not used to talking to somebody in their body
look,theres somebody in a body,somebody in a bodyback to top
