10 Nowhere to Run

Verse 1:
Watching the day, slowly slip away.
Letting the madness, keep me at bay.
Even my dreams, won’t leave it alone.
Why does love, carry such a sword?
Wondering, are you gonna let it slide.
Everyday, is just another lie.

Verse 2:
Reaching out, but are you really there.
Is it real, or just my despair.
Come on baby now, open that door.
Every feeling, baby give me some more.
Wondering, are you gonna let it slide.
Everyday, is just another lie.

Chorus 1:
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
letting the day’s, baby kick me inside
Everyday another alibi,
You’re leading me on, Baby, bleeding me dry.

Verse 3:
It’s so crazy Babe, I just don’t get it.
What is life, if you just won’t let it.
Maybe it’s true, Yeah, we all take that fall.
In my heart I know, it’s no good at all.
Wondering, are you gonna let it slide.
Everyday, is just another lie.

Chorus 2

Break:
Taking control, is there nothing to lose.
You’re holding the line, still you don’t seem to choose.
I feel like I’m falling out.
Baby, you’re holding out.

Verse 4.
Watching the day, slowly slip away.
Letting the madness, keep me at bay.
Reasoning out, everything that I hold.
I know now, you’re no good at all!
Wondering, are you gonna let it slide.
Everyday, is just another lie.

Chorus 3: Repeat twice.

09 Kings and Queens

Verse 1:

Ah, Ah, tell me what’s in store, in store,
in store for me,
Ah, Ah, what’s it gonna be
Ah, Ah, tell me what you know, you know,

Ah, Ah, what’s it gonna be

Now the jesters court, is all but bear,
just stark reminders of dreams, fill the air.

show me the way my friend.

Verse 1:
I’m taking a walk,
Away, from it all.
You say let’s talk.
But that won’t change it, no.
I feel the heat,
and the pain of life’s own sting.
I’m feeling discrete.
In a world oblivious to change.

The sky above is daunting.
Voices from above, they’re telling me.
But their words they have no substance.
I’m never knowing, what can make it right.
Oohh, and the feeling’s so strange.
Yeah-eah-eah Ooh-oh-oh.
Yeah-eah-eah Ooh-oh-oh.

Chorus 1:
I need you to tell me.
Those sweet words to make it right.
Girl, come close and tell me.
Those, sweet words, to make it right.

Verse 2:
I hear a song,
and the words, their filled with pain.
Don’t tell me its wrong.
Cause that won’t change it, no!

You give me your will,
but it is love, I really want.
Cause that’s what’s real.
When nothing else, feels right.

The sky above is daunting.
Voices from above, they’re telling me.
But their words they have no substance.
I’m never knowing, what can make it right.
Oohh, and the feeling’s so strange.
Yeah-eah-eah Ooh-oh-oh.
Yeah-eah-eah Ooh-oh-oh.

Chorus 2:
I need you to tell me.

07 Inside Out

Verse 1:
With the time that you’re wasting,
you could be making,
what it takes to get on in this world.
And don’t say it don’t matter,
when you keep waiting,
second best means nothing to you.

So look over your shoulder,
secretly searching, for what it takes,
but you’ll never find.
You keep stealing the limelight,
looking so uptight,
strutting around in them high heel shoes.

inside out, baby, yeah.
Inside out, we know what you’re all about,
inside out, baby.

You know what it’s all about.

Verse 2:
How could I have been so blind.
Look at Jack, was flat on his back.
He took a walk, and he never looked back.
And it’s the same situation with you and me.

A hundred years they went by so fast.
I gave you all, all that I had.
You threw it out like it’s never been had.
And now I hear, that your looking for love, again.

Sub-Verse:
Can’t you see what your doing (to me).
Who are you fooling (not me).
You take it all, but got nothing to give (got nothing to give).
So say what you know baby (so say what you know baby).
You’re driving me crazy.
You’ve had it once, but it’s never enough.

Don’t try to explain it, I don’t want to hear it,
I can’t believe you keep leading me on.
Just take a look at me baby,
I’m locked on the inside,
you’ve taken it all but got nothing to give.

Repeat Chorus.

Verse 3:
With the time that you’re wasting,
you could be making,
what it takes to get on in this world.
And don’t say it don’t matter,

So look over your shoulder,
as if you keep searching, for what it takes,
but you’ll never find.
You keep stealing the limelight,
looking so uptight,
strutting around in them high heel shoes.

Chorus 3:
Inside out,
you know what it’s all about,
inside out, baby, yeah.
Inside out, we know what you’re all about,
inside out, baby, yeah.

05 Always Be

Verse 1:
Love,
you hear it on the radio,
read it in some magazine,
but it’s never quite what it seems.
And now,
take a look around you,
you see the sky has fallen through,
and there’s nothing else left for you.

Chorus 1:
And now,
take a look at me.
I’ve been waiting for so long,
to hold you in my arms,
and tell you that I need you.
Nothing else could be so true.
I will always be,
I will always be,
be there for you.

Verse 2:
At times,
everything clouds your mind,
you search real hard, but cannot find,
the things in life to satisfy.
You cry,
you look around and no one’s there,
to pick you up and say they care,
no love or reason anywhere.

Chorus 2:
But now,
take a look at me.
I’ve been waiting for so long,
to hold you in my arms,
and tell you that I need you.
Nothing else could be so true.
I will always be,
I will always be,
be there for you.
And I’ll tell you what you want to hear.
I will always be.
I will always be.
Be there for you.

Break:
Don’t wait, a minute longer.
No tears, can break the wall.
You can’t hide, behind your shadow.
I’m here, I’m all alone.
Don’t wait, no longer.
No tears, can make you stronger.
What you know, and what you feel.
Has a hold, of the deal.

Verse 3: repeat Verse 1.

03 Walls

Verse 1:
Listen, if you listen, you will hear
A reckless heart beat
On the inside
Through the walls the sound is crawling
Down the corridors and halls
It cracks the ceiling, the windows, and the doors
Well the rest won’t listen, though the walls have ears
But they never really look, they just stand and stare
There all standing, staring at the walls (walls, walls)

Chorus
Who put the writing on the walls
Will no one ever know
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls

Verse 2:
Tell me, why won’t you tell me
Have you, got nothing to say
Tell me where in the hell this place is
Tell me, why I get no answers
Am I talking, talking to the walls
Someone’s running, jumping, standing still
I think I’ve had, enough of it all
Get your hands up, up against the wall

Chorus
Who put the writing on the walls
Will no one ever know
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
I don’t mind the walls

Verse 3:
(Shake it to me, shake it to me…)
Through the walls the sound is crawling
Down the corridors and halls
It cracks the ceiling, the windows, and the doors
Well the rest won’t listen, though the walls have ears
But they never really look, they just stand and stare
They’re all standing, staring at the walls (walls, walls)
They’re all standing, staring at the walls (walls, walls)
They’re all standing, staring at the walls (walls, walls)

Chorus
Who put the writing on the walls
Will no one ever know
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
I don’t mind the walls

Chorus/Subverse
Who put the writing on the walls
Who fights and runs away
The minute Sunday hours passing,
Chasing out the days.
The days and nights back into years
And no one ever knows
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
Oh Hoh and I don’t mind the walls
I don’t mind the walls

02 Everyone’s Talking, But Nothing’s Been Said

Verse 1:
We’ve only been here for a very short time.
Too short for playing around.

The big guys are just talking heads.
In the news, and on the T.V.

We sit and listen, quiet as sheep.
Got to make sense, to save our necks.

To wake me up, and make me feel alive,
break down the walls around my mind,
and bring me into my life.
And make me open my eyes.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah.
Open my eyes.
Open, open, open, open, open, open, open, open Cause.
