Oh, what you’ve got, you’ve got to give, ohWhat is it that makes you live? OhWhat you see is what you get, ohWhat makes you get out of bed? Oh
 
This bond isn’t commonI’m just happy it existsBecause we don’t trust muchAnd we built our defenses
I managed to drop mine a couple of timesI thought I saw youWasn’t you, nevermindOur defences are connected now
 
Bats and butterflies
 
Hey, hey, heyOne lays down and one stays upOne’s in light and one’s in darkOne brings moon and one brings sunThey both meet at dusk or dawn
A black man got the blood of the white manA gay man got the rights of a straight manYouth is green and fresh like grassYouth is blind, but I don’t care
 
Now tell me, my love, how am I coming through?Coming throughI’m trying to keep my spark alive for youAlive for you
 
Bats and butterflies
What you’ve got, you’ve got to give, ohWhat is it that makes you live? OhWhat you see is what you get, ohWhat makes you get out of bed? Oh (bats and butterflies)
 
Tell me are we born friends or are we born to fight?But I don’t wanna fight my own kind, soThe stronger can help the weakAnd in return, the weak shall rise again
There is a bond connecting us allConnected by love
Bats and butterflies
Wish I would find new way toStart a conversation‘Cause now it’s getting kinda hard to meet the expectationsThat you set to be but never gave a solid explanationI was always me because I always had an admirationFor the worlds within me that I love with every boneI’ll meet you at the endOf this long and winding roadAnd there’s a price we’ve got to payFor when we grow we slowly dieNothing left to do than wipe theDust and say goodbye to theLife you’ve lived beforeNow it’s time to grow
Yeah yeah we all change as the life goesYeah yeah we all change as the life goesByBye
 
Wish I could keep all my memoriesAll the smells and eerie stories that we told by the fire burning lowI still remember how my sisters held my hand when I was lostHow I held my father’s hand when he cried tears ’cause of divorceWish I would stay this youngFor a long long timeHope I’ll say I did it allBut you know that there’s a price we’ve got to payBut now let’s thank we’re all aliveLove yourself the wayThat you’d want to be loved cause theLife you’ve lived beforeIs gone it’s time to grow
Yeah yeah we all change as the life goesYeah yeah we all change as the life goesByOh Bye
I won’t ever grow I’ll alwaysDrive on carpet road in my headI won’t ever grow I’ll alwaysDrive on carpet road in my headRoads don’t ever crackOn carpet roadStreets don’t ever fadeOn carpet roadI remain the sameOn carpet roadTimes they always passNow its time to grow
Yeah yeah we all change as the life goesYeah yeah we all change as the life goesByBye
I won’t ever grow I’ll alwaysDrive on carpet road in my headI won’t ever grow I’ll alwaysDrive on carpet road in my head
When the sun goes down in the eastWhen the sun goes down in the eastYou know you gottaYou know you gotta run from itIf I listen it’s really just sirensIn the news is a minute of silenceIt’s time for me to count all my sinsSomething’s wrong I feel it in the weatherSky is darkened in the city of nether and itTells me something’s off just listenWhen the sun goes down in the eastWhen the sun goes down in the eastYou know you gotta,You know you gotta run from it
Oh when the darkness comesWe cross our hands and we pray to God butMy faith lies deep insideIt’s cold outside I’ve got a frozen smile andThere is no place to hideI can hear the signs that the winds blow loud andThere’s something in the airAnd the smell of rain says I should’ve ran‘Cause something’s bound to happen nowWhen the sun goes down in the eastWhen the sun goes down in the eastYou know you gottaYou know you gotta run from it
You scratched my car!Where?Right there.Oh that, that was already there.You liar!

I don’t know what’s the deal with meI like to lie, it’s a thrill to meI know it’s messed upIt’s usually just the smallest thingsBut oh my god it’s so f* good
I don’t know why it’s so much funA good liar till the day I dieI don’t mindEveryone that is close to meDon’t believe a single thing I say
Well that’s the price I payThat’s okay I’ll take it anywayIt’s too funI know my mum is just fed up with itBut sorry mum I just cannot stop

Well now whatcha gonna do?Am I telling you the lie or truth?Well now better thing aboutWhat you think is true and what is false

I was only playing gamesYou know I like to liePlease honey don’t be madIt’s just a different kind of funI can’t explainI can’t explainI could be anything you pleaseI could be anyone you needOh girl don’t you see all the positives?‘Cause everybody lies it’s crystal clearAll the parents playing peek-a-booWhere they at?I don’t have a clueNow there you goI was right they were faking itAnd Santa isn’t real they made him up

Okay I get it it’s not too fairWhen I lie straight to your faceOkay I get why you get madI know how you feelI’m being for real
Well now whatcha gonna do?Am I telling you the lie or truth?Well now better thing aboutWhat you think is true and what is false

I was only playing gamesYou know I like to liePlease honey don’t be madIt’s just a different kind of funI can’t explainI can’t explainSorry I liedBut I’ll probably do it again
I followIn dark alleyways the souls that are hollowI followThe shadows that have been desperate for sorrowI followWhen blood becomes thick the life becomes shallowI followThe world that I’m in is covered in shadows
But ohIf there’s nothing leftThen I’ll moveSomewhere elseI need toKeep it movingNeed to keep it movingNeed to knowThat it’s never safeWhere I follow
 
I followBut sometimes the sun is down for too longI get tired too I wanna sleep like youI wanna rest in peace I wanna turn off tooBut I followNever at rest your sleep I might borrowI followBy shadows I’m cursed demone del solo
But ohIf there’s nothing leftThen I’ll moveSomewhere elseI need toKeep it movingNeed to keep it movingNeed to knowThat it’s never safeWhere I follow
What will I follow if there’s nothing left?Who will I know if there’s no one there?How will I know if it’s night or day?Oh where will I go when I’ve been everywhere? I saidWhat will I follow if there’s nothing left?Who will I know if there’s no one there?How will I know if it’s night or day?Oh where will I go when I’ve been everywhere?
I followIn dark alleyways the souls that are hollowI followThe shadows that have been desperate for sorrowI followWhen blood becomes thick the life becomes shallowI followThe world that I’m in is covered in shadows

If we’re all just floatingWhat do we call thoseThat are sinking all theTime sinking far down?There was a timeWhen I was just aliveBut being aliveDoesn’t mean you’re livingTo give an adviceI’ll only sayLive in cloudsAnd rain down down downLike thunderIf the ground below usMelts in summer sunWill we just fall far downOr will we stay afloat?Up here in the cloudsYou coat yourself in wool (oh it’s so soft and warm)And when it’s timeFor you to go back downYou don’t want to go (I won’t go)I understand (I won’t go)You live in clouds (I live here)And sometimes it’s hard to rain downLike thunderThere was a timeWhen I was just aliveBut being aliveDoesn’t mean you’re livingTo give an adviceI’ll only sayLive in cloudsAnd rain down down downLike thunder

Expectations I’mFull of expectationsI can’t waitI can’t waitMy temptationsMy temptations seem to pour like rainJust like rain
‘Cause all I needIs to feel
 
Icy tongues, burning bodiesI feel love, now ain’t it funnyHow we found ourselves right where we want to be?Oh our icy tongues, they bring the heatOh they bring the heat
 
Come on closerCome a little closer, you look so goodOur lips are close in reach nowI can’t take it anymoreI feel your breath
‘Cause all I Need
Is to Feel
 
Icy tongues, burning bodiesI feel love, ain’t it funnyJust how we found ourselves right where we want to be?Oh our icy tongues, yeah they bring the heat

I don’t wanna lie no more
kept all in my chest but
yea u gotta know when you’re done
My cup is pretty full it’s almost leaking
This the season

I tried it
I tried digging graves for the pain
I seen it
I seen a friend lost in the haze
Numb face don’t equal no emotions
dumb face in the mirror of the washroom
wandering the backroom

I know it’s wrong but
I keep sliding back to my worst

Ooh Ooh I was getting high on the weekend
Sun is set and we’re getting even

You’ve ben running through the night yea
hidden in the shadows creeping
You’ve been going nonstop no sleeping
speedin at the red light it’s beepin
Got a hard time coming home
and u get the feeling that you know
it all but u never really know it all do ya?
You’re just another soul on the road

Highs and lows but u always wanna be on top
Paracetamol you’re getting lost in time and

I need a time out nobody here knows me
Morning and my head doing cartwheels
I might be feeling kinda sorry
This here is a looping story

I know it’s wrong but
I keep sliding back to my worst

Ooh Ooh I was getting high on the weekend
Sun is set and we’re getting even

My God I need a hand to hold
My God I need lens for my eyes
My God I put it all onto you
My God I know it’s wrong but
I keep sliding back to my worst

Ooh Ooh I was getting high on the weekend
Sun is set and we’re getting even

My God I need a hand to hold
My God I need lens for my eyes
My God I put it all onto you
didn’t I my God?
I tried to cover the truth

How do I keep making her cry?
I thought that I’ve been good
Askin’ if I could stay a while
but I’m always off too soon
Some nights sleeping alone
head in the piano keys
Some nights walking on home
needing the company
How do I keep circlin’ around
somebody stop the loop
I just feel like it’s all too much
and I don’t know what to do
Now I’m tryna get high
so I can get some relief
One of these days i might pack up light
and gtf out of here

Could you make my mind act right if i would let you in you in there?

Feels so close but you’re out of my reach and I cannot recall your smell ooh I
Tend to get lost, overdosed on my thoughts and they’re the kind that is hard to share

How do we go to the next round?
step by step day by day
You don’t seem to care much about me
that is how you behave
Never pick up the phone
when I need you the most
Now I am out in the town
but certainly not alone

Could you make my mind act right if i would let you in you in there?

Feels so close but you’re out of my reach and I cannot recall your smell ooh I
Tend to get lost, overdosed on my thoughts and they’re the kind that is hard to share

I been feeling lost, yeah feeling so low
I hooked you on my mojo 
We were pretty cool right from the get go
it’s alright

Feels so close but you’re out of my reach and I cannot recall your smell ooh I
Tend to get lost, overdosed on my thoughts and they’re the kind that is hard to share

She’s still so young and in her prime
Dry her eyes
I don’t have nowhere left to hide
Shed every coat let her peak inside
I don’t mind
Through all the tears and sleepless nights

I think we are gonna be alright

Like Zara said follow no-one but you
You’ve gotta try to find the truth
I guess you never know which way to go
You’re talking to yourself, a holy war
Sometimes we join our hands
Fall on our knees and start to pray

I think we are gonna be alright

I know I let you down sometimes but honey
You know it’s hard to find peace of mind
But if you wanna go far far away
Let me grab my bag and catch the first train
I’ll call my sis to water my plants
I’m down for the ride

I think we are gonna be alright

She’s living in the past‘Cause the future’s goneShe gets so highAnd then she falls down every time
She sold her soulDancing on a poleShe got dirty eyesLaid upon her every nightAnd now
Red light shining and she knowsShe’s so much better than she showsNo one there to guide herOh she doesn’t like the way life goesShe says
MhmThe red light took myInnocence and INever got it back
 
She never had the chanceTo choose where she standsShe’s been thrown into the cold andTold exactly how to please the world
Red light shining and she knowsShe’s so much better than she showsNo one there to guide herOh she doesn’t like the way life goesShe says
MhmThe red light took myInnocence and INever got it back
 
If her mother knewIf her father knewThey would do nothingOh they never met
Red light shining and she knowsShe’s so much better than she showsNo one there to guide herOh she doesn’t like the way life goes

Dream about bread but I’m eating rice crackers out the package
Stayin’ up late, workin’ in the studio more than I can manage
Walking home feeling like a ghost the city’s asleep now
1am 2am 3am starting to blur now
Street lights flickering two cop cars on a patrol and I take the right turn home
I’m cold
zip.

Dream about bread, but I’m eating rice crackers out the package yeah
She dream about herself, she got a picture in her mind and she’s trying hard to paint it
Dream about wealth
bottom of the barrel I remember when we couldn’t even buy bread
now I get my own bread
and you know what they say
You’re a slave to the money if you let it
if you’re not made of stone
then you better not show at all
like my father used to say
you’ll get some scratches along the way
just remember that son

I’ve seen bad people with a lotta money
I’ve seen good people with a lotta nothing
I know that’s gotta be a mirror of something yeah
I’ve seen good guys tryna get worse
I’ve seen bad guys tryna get better
I know that’s gotta be a mirror of something
gotta be a mirror 
gotta be a mirror of something

Dream about bread but I’m eating rice crackers out the package
Stayin’ up late, workin’ in the studio more than I can manage
Walking home feeling like a ghost the city’s asleep now
1am 2am 3am starting to blur now
Street lights flickering two cop cars on a patrol and I take the right turn home
I’m cold
zip.

I really love youI think you know me wellWe can really hit it off whenI mean all the things I sayWhen you’re not all in your headI’m sorry for breaking your heart
 
I’m trynna find comfort in disguiseI’m trynna find truth in all my liesFind me dancing with the starsComing home lateYou’re asleepWe don’t speakYou leave me paper notesSo now I read
 
Sad poems in the reader’s parkSad songs in that writer’s mindI feel lost like I’ve gone and never came backWatcha said to me babeCan’t recognize my breathI’m busy losing my mind over youIt’s july and I’m up to no no goodIn time I’ll make it all up to youLovebirds all fled when i asked of herIn smoke with people i never knewWhen you look at me can you see right throughLike you used to do
 
I’m trynna find comfort in demiseI’m trynna find truth in crooked linesCatch me falling with the starsMy eyes don’t drip noTears I hold backWe don’t speakYou leave me paper notesSo now I read
 
Sad poems in the reader’s parkSad songs in that writer’s mindI feel lost like I’ve gone and never came backWatcha said to me babeCan’t recognize my breathI’m busy losing my mind over you
Over youWe’re slowly slippin’ into melancholyIs it too late to save what we builtWe’re slowly slippin’ into melancholyIs it too late, is it too late honey?

Like an alien like an alien
in my home state but my mind’s set – go and get
With love in my heart
with pain in my scars

I keep the steps short
I make sure i move forth
just like the Stresemann’s Bristlefront
I feel connected to the inner worth

Like a mannequin like a mannequin
When the camera go off
middle finger in the frame again
Raised poor so I’m tryna get better
You know what they say rise shine and get cheddar

I keep the steps short
I make sure i move forth
just like the Stresemann’s Bristlefront
I feel connected to the inner worth

Reading books in the window
sun on my back
Getting lost in the page
I start again
Sitting on the edge, that’s so like me
jump the yellow pages like an acrobat
reading books in the window of a studio flat
strum a jazz chord in my ear
My money goes like nascar, i can’t even see it
Serpentines in my mind, are they ever gonna straighten? Maybe never

It go like one two three I got
serpentines in my mind

Hope I dream about an apricot
bet it’s warm in Santa Monica
Got up late, yeah my girl made that morning stretch
Check the sun ‘cause I avoid the screen
Wifi bars shit that’s so fitting
Got me running round in stripes
man I thought I was free

Sierra all around me
I find that half life boring
It’s all good i just worry
Please don’t you say that I need it
Sierra all around you
Your house your shoes your head too
Make sure you check your cable
Please don’t you say you don’t need it

Hanging down from an apple tree
little boy run and chase the wind
stealing ciggies from my gran
but they were just no fun
Hanging out in the garden shade
I smell the grass I lay in the hay
Let your phone die
throw the charger in a lake

Sierra all around me
I find that half life boring
It’s all good i just worry
Please don’t you say that I need it
Sierra all around you
Your house your shoes your head too
Make sure you check your cable
Please don’t you say you don’t need it

We didn’t know what we would get 
‘Cause when life gives you lemons
you take what you get
and it’s not like you don’t care,
it’s a habit of making something good of something bad

Sierra all around me
I find that half life boring
It’s all good i just worry
Please don’t you say that I need it
Sierra all around you
Your house your shoes your head too
Make sure you check your cable
Please don’t you say you don’t need it

All in my head lost, I feel like a renegade
Jumping the fence now, I know it is never late
Shoot my shot and it goes back to where it came from
Just my luck I see myself through the peephole

Yeah yeah I got no rules
I do whatever floats my boat
You tell me ‘bout
The hardest pill to swallow
But I’m not listening at all

All in my head lost, fine, I don’t care anyway
Sleeping all through the night, I don’t stay wide awake
Just my luck I met a man swimming in gold and cash
Suicidal cause the wealth could never numb the pain
But money moves the world
So we’re making money moves now

Yeah yeah I got no rules
I do whatever floats my boat
You tell me ‘bout
The hardest pill to swallow
But I’m not listening at all

Which pill is the hardest to swallow?
Answer’s in poetry, Phoebus Apollo
The act is cheap and the talk is shallow
Which pill is the worst for you?

I’m not talking ’bout quaaludes or Xannys or ems
Prejudice in pills, fear in the gels
Are you one with the the upper man?
Are you one with the higher self?

See I used to think that i’ve got no religion
But then i found out that i’m one with religion
I used to think
Why did I bother?

I don’t cross my hands I don’t bruise my knees
I just close my eyes and I let it be
I am meditating in the afternoon
There is nothing that I gotta prove

If you wanna see something you’ve never seen before
Then just find it in the darkness where it’s waiting to be known
If you wanna go somewhere you haven’t been before
Then just let go of your body and then fall into void

When spring came, it took me out of shade
got me feeling good again
Sun dripping of the window pane
birds chirping, summer’s one call away
Mmm blooming begins yeah
Hope you can feel it ah

Some things that she did before
feel a lot different with another boy
Some things that i did again
feel a lot better now that spring began

In the time of gemini
I like to think I love you right

When spring came, it took me out of blue
tan lines underneath the swim suit
I don’t see how this could get bad, I mean
Skin warm and flowers in the hair

Some things that she hid before
now lay out in the open like it’s marigolds
Some things that I did again
feel a lot better when I’m not in pain

In the time of gemini
I like to think i love you right

Back and forth
in my mind all the time
that’s alright
You and me fight then we make love
in one night
I’m not trying to be someone that I’m not
I’ll care for you when you don’t care for me
I’ll always be hiding in your memories
Back and forth

I’m looking for my kind,
I can’t be the only one
so where are you friends?Although it isn’t fair
it happens anyway
that a man is born out of place so I’m

I’m looking for that place
where they meet themselves with grace
and not with just a wave
Although it isn’t easy
I will find it even
if it’s near the end of space

So where is my kind
I know I’m not the only one
Where is my kind to make me complete

I wanna fill a hole
that is right there in my soul
I don’t wanna be alone no more
And maybe you could help
if you’d point me the right way
that you think that I should go
And my girl is great
and I love her so
but we both need friends
I wanna have my friends
I hope someone can relate
I’m just trying to find a few

So where is my kind
I know i’m not the only one
Where is my kind to make me complete

I know that I belong somewhere
I know that I belong
I know they miss me when I’m not there
I know but they don’t know

Where is my kind where is it?
Where is my kind where is it?
Where is my kind where is it?
Where is my kind?

Cut to me sippin’ black tea with milk and honey
Sitting in the kitchen looking out the window thinking
Wish i was a poppy seed or an ant in an anthill
A part of something

I’ve been looking back like an old man on his youth
All my life i ran away seeking solitude
It’s hard for me to satisfy my lust for everything
I wish i was a poppy seed

But I wish it wasn’t so
I’m only good at letting go

Sometimes I take a look at the sky
and I catch myself wondering what it’s like to fly
Baby told me that I think too much
and i just can’t deny ‘cause I know that she’s right

But I wish it wasn’t so
I’m only good at letting go

Oh oh my I know what you likeWhen I walk walk byI see you shy
Hi here I go againHere I go againI’m just waiting for my friendsBut they never show up on timeWell nevermind. Me?I’m doing fine ’cause I’mAll about that girl who passed byAnd now I’m gonna make my moveShe’s an A+ grade she got me like ooh wowThat girl is zexy!
Hi here I go againI don’t even know your nameBut we could be something greatSo could i be so bold and ask you out someday?
 
Oh oh my I know what you likeWhen I walk walk byI see you shy
There she goesI strike a poseKA-CHAW!
Won’t you play a game with me girlJust tell me what’s your name andI’ll get in touch with you
 
Oh oh my I know what you likeWhen I walk walk byI see you shy
