Track Name: The Human Race To Nowhere
There's so many colors, there's so many points of view
There'll always be somebody hating everything you do
Some people tell you, you're never good enough
Make you believe that there is no such thing as love

We're gonna make it, we're gonna be alright
We're not waiting 'till some future day or future life
We're not waiting to find out if there's a paradise when we die,
'cos right now at least we know that we're alive

And we can dance and play, every single day
Joining hands with everybody
We can laugh and sing, we can all do anything
We're not working for anybody

We think we're free in this deformation age
Another fake musician, on the TV getting laid
Another preacher, telling lies and getting paid
Another prisoner being locked away for our mistakes

It's so disappointing that the human race is gone
Everybody's doing everything they know is wrong
By the time you've made your fortune,
You'll be dead or you'll get robbed
Life's so short,
Why waste these moments on another fucking job

When we can dance and play, every single day
Joining hands with everybody
We can laugh and sing, we can all do anything
We're not working for anybody

There's so many colors, there's so many points of view
There'll always be somebody hating everything you do
Some people tell you, you're never good enough
Make you believe that there is no such thing as love

We're gonna make it, we're gonna be alright
We're not waiting 'till some future day or future life
We're not waiting to find out if there's a paradise when we die,
'cos right now at least we know that we're alive

We think we're free in this deformation age
Another fake musician, on the TV getting laid
Another preacher, telling lies and getting paid
Another prisoner locked away for our mistakes

It's so disappointing that the human race is gone
Everybody's doing everything they know is wrong
By the time you've made your fortune,
You'll be dead or you'll get robbed
Life's so short,
Why waste these moments on another fucking job

When we can dance and play, every single day
Joining hands with everybody
We can laugh and sing, we can all do anything
We're not working for anybody

When we can dance and play, every single day
Joining hands with everybody
We can laugh and sing, we can all do anything
We're not working for anybody
Track Name: Life Is Hazy
Some days you mean the world to me
But other days, oh can't you see
I'm lost
Oh lord I'm lost
Might say that I don't care for you
But you know that just can't be true
Today, da, da, da, da
Oh no, today
And everytime I think I'm free
That's when you come right back to me
Convince me that I'm somebody
Until you lose the game
Da, da, da,
Da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da

Crazy I'm going crazy
My life is hazy and I'm all alone

This is why I keep away
From all the games that others play
And this is where I'm gonna stay
'till I drive away the pain
Da, da, da,
Da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da

Crazy, we're going crazy
Our life is hazy and I'm all alone
Said I'm crazy, I'm going crazy
My life is hazy and I'm all alone

They say we're nothing without cash
But I would rather live on trash
Then play along with their pathetic games
And the human race is dying out
So let's keep spinning all around
'till we're so dizzy, dizzy, dizzy
We just forget

Because we're crazy,
We're going crazy,
Our life is hazy
And we're all alone
Said I'm crazy
And I'm fuckin' lazy
My life is hazy
And I'm all alone
Crazy,
I'm going crazy
My life is hazy
And I'm all alone.
Track Name: Far Away
Hiding in an upstairs room,
Erotically crawling on your hands and knees
Dressed up like a princess,
With the make up of a queen
You're lookin' at me like you want me,
And you know I want you too
And I'm feelin' so good to be by your side,
But I don't know what to do

Even though we're both so high
Baby, I feel like I'm falling down
And even though you look so beautiful
I feel like you put me under a spell

And if I had the chance to run
I would stand here by your side
And if you told me to go back home
Then you know I'd rather lose my mind

When you left me standing there,
With a sudden impulsive move
It was like the lights went out
But I could still see a picture of you

And you called out to me,
Told me to believe,
Told me I would see,
All the things that we could be
With the dreams in my mind
Worlds you can find
Where the two of us can play
Far away, far away...
Far Away.

Fighting with symbolic sticks,
Like a flash from a life in the path of lost time
Dressed up like a warrior girl,
With the heart of the bravest lion
You're lookin' at me like you want me,
And you know that I want you too
If you follow me, then we'll go to a place,
Where I promise that I'll follow you

But when I left you standing there,
With a sudden impulsive move
It was like the lights went out
But I could still see a picture of you

And you called out to me,
Told me to believe,
Told me I would see,
All the things that we could be
With the dreams in my mind
Worlds you can find
Where the two of us can play
Far away, far away...
Far Away.

And even though we're both so high
Baby, I feel like I'm falling down
And even though you look so beautiful
I feel like you put me under a spell

And if I had the chance to run
I would stand here by your side
And if you told me to go back home
Then you know I'd rather lose my mind

In a world so far away...
Where the harps of the angels play...
Where the road we take leads to never...
Where the sun shines on forever...
Where our love will never die...
Where our world will never lie...
Where I'll live right in your arms...
And you'll live right back in mine...
Swimming through the waters of love...
Flying through the skies above...
Playing with the faeries of light...
Everybody shining ever so bright...
In a world so far away...
Where the harps of the angels play...
Where the road we take leads to never...
Where the sun shines on forever and ever

Far away...
In a world so far away...
Far away...
In a world so far away...
Track Name: The Merry Go Round
Welcome,
To your new home...

I want to fly away,
To a happy place,
The Merry-Go-Round

The world is gone...
This is our dream

If you're into hating people,
Stay far away from me...

See the elephants
But we want to see the monkeys as well...
And the giraffes.

There's nothing to be afraid of here...
This is paradise

Do you love me?
Do you love me?

First you must take away restrictions of the mind...
You have to be free...

Let's play on the merry-go-round
Come!
Let's play on the merry-go-round

Look at the beautiful fairies,
What a wonderful dream,
Do you see them?
Let's fall into a deeper sleep,

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Do you love me?

Welcome to your new home.
Track Name: City Of Women
In training on the train of life
Looking for something to set me free
Children playing through the window
The white rabbit sits right before me

Leave my life behind me
As I step off of the train
I'm gonna follow the white rabbit
Into the dark terrain

Feminists and lesbians
With strangest demonstrations
I don’t belong here, I don't belong here
But I cannot hide my fascination

You have to run to get away
Into the elevator
But you must be brave,
You must be brave if you want to be saved
Oh you must be brave if you want to be saved

She tells me I must learn to skate
To understand the circle
To put my trust in her, have faith
To find the love eternal

Suddenly I’m falling
Down the stairs, my legs are stiff
I wouldn’t even be here
If it wasn’t for that bitch

A larger, dirty woman,
Fuels the fire, helps me through
Telling me the story,
Of her fallen husband too

She takes me on her motorcycle
Trying to get home
But she takes me to a greenhouse
And the two of us alone

She tries to rape me, to violate me
Makes me touch her breasts
Her mother saves me, she beats her up
And she wishes me the best

I’m in the city, city of women
This is the city, city of women
Trapped in the city, city of women
Maybe they’ll help me understand the mysteries of man…

I’m in the back of a car with so many girls, girls, girls,
Everyone is tripping out, these drugs are so unreal, real,
Darker now, I’m walking through the valley of death,
Followed by the cars of terrifying women’s threats
Running from my fears, I find my way into the trees
The siren sounds, the man comes out with his security
There’s guard dogs and protection and he offers me to stay
I take his offer up just to be sure that I am safe

There’s celebration, lust, temptation, desires everywhere
Everybody in one place, without the slightest fears
But soon the party’s over, the police have killed his dog
The happiness has faded, the beginning of a storm

Up the stairs and soon to bed, I’m lying there in peace
But something calling from the distance, crying out to me
I creep beneath the bed and see across the other side
A tunnel that will take me through the memories of my life

Questionnaires but no reply for why I am a man
Or why do I repeat myself, or wear these socks in bed
The reasons why I am afraid to make decisions too
Or the reasons why I have no answers or the slightest clue

I climb the ladder, need to find the woman of my dreams
Ignore the people laughing and their chanting behind me
I make it to the top, and all the people start to leave
And there she stands, the elderly woman looking back at me

She puts me in an air balloon, and now I’m floating high
Until I am shot down by the woman of my life
She brings me back on down to earth, so I will not deceive
Myself with anymore of these deluded, selfish dreams

I’m in the city, city of women
This is the city, city of women
Trapped in the city, city of women
Maybe they'll help me understand the mysteries of man
Track Name: Too Much
You say good morning when I'm saying goodbye
You think it's kinda funny
'cause I'm gettin' kinda high
Too much...yes...too much

Oh baby, I just want you so much
If you get any closer, you just know
I'm gonna touch that body...
Uh come on and touch that body
Too much...

I love the way you look at me
Your eyes they always make me free
I know the way to Fairyland
Let's go, I'll take you by the hand

Oh baby, I just want you so much
If you get any closer, you just know I'm gonna touch
That body...uh come on and touch that body
Too much...

You think I'm laughing when there's tears in my eyes
You wanna drive away this madness inside
Too much
Too much

Let's run to safety, there's some crazy people out there
They're gettin' close, we got to get right outta here
Come on...uh yes...come on

Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby

Oh baby, I just want you so much
If you get any closer, you just know I'm gonna touch
That body...uh come on and touch that body
Too much...

Sometimes when I am sleeping all on my own
I get to thinking what it's like in your home
Too much...too much

I know you think you're sexy, and I know you're so fine
But why are you pretending, don't you want to be mine?
Too much...ah huh...too much

So listen up now

Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby
Come on baby...come on come on come on baby

I love the way you look at me
Your eyes they always make me free
I know the way to Fairyland
Let's go, I'll take you by the hand

Oh baby, I just want you so much
If you get any closer, you just know I'm gonna touch
That body...uh come on and touch that body
Too much...

I love the way you look at me
Your eyes they always make me free
I know the way to Fairyland
Let's go, I'll take you by the hand

Oh baby, I just want you so much
If you get any closer, you just know I'm gonna touch
That body...uh come on and touch that body
Too much...
Track Name: Voices From Ancient Egypt
I can feel a change, it's been growing in my veins
And I really wanna play it out
I can feel a force, getting stronger ever hour
Do you know what this is all about?
Every time I fall, far away from everything
Something in me wants to scream and shout
If you let me try baby I can make you fly baby
Time for you to live is now

So if you wanna feel it, come along for the ride honey,
I got all the time in the world,
Maybe I don't have the money that you need,
But it's a matter of time, before we get what we want,
With the power of the mind,
And I'm climbing up the stairs of love,
Looking at the world above,
Wondering what it feels like down below,
But I don't wanna go back there,
I am happy just right here,
Flying in the sky, high, free from all my fears

For the first time in my life, right now,
I don't feel alone
I hear voices calling from Ancient Egypt,
We're on our way back home

There's people trynna keep you all locked away in your mind,
They got control, make you scared, make you cry,
Make you work until you die...
Never give you any time...
So you never really think about the questions you should find,
There's a place we can go,
Where they're never gonna know,
Where they're never gonna find us,
Past'll be behind us
You and I can fly through the night, under stars
We can talk about the sun, we can talk about mars,
We can live for the moment, and die for the change,
We'll transfigure everything because it's time to rearrange
We'll listen to the voices calling us from the past
We will find our hidden roots, we will find our home at last
What a magical world, what a magical place
What a magical feeling, what a magical face
As we run hand in hand, over desert, under sky,
All our friends, from all our lives, all together, reunite...

For the first time in my life right now,
I don't feel alone
I hear voices calling from Ancient Egypt,
We're on our way back home
I've been flying on a magic carpet,
Over fields of gold,
I hear voices calling from Ancient Egypt,
We're on our way back home

Walk down the stairs to a place we can dance,
This is the night of the divine romance.
Prolong your faith just a little bit longer,
You’ll make your life, just a little bit stronger
Keeping your focus on the whims of your heart,
You'll discover the truth and you'll know where to start.
I've planted the answers inside of your dreams,
But don’t you forget to water the seeds.

Track Name: Head In The Clouds
I, I used to be
So, so blind you see
And I left you there
In my world of fear

But now that I've grown
And I'm here alone
I can finally see
All the things that you were to me

You, you gave me light
To hide the darkness
When I couldn't see
You shared your love and dreams with me

There's so many things that I could say to you
(Would you hear me?)
'cos when I'm with you baby I can see the truth
('cos I don't know)
But I don't want to build this house upon the sand
(The truth is freedom)
I want to show you who I really am (really am)

Let's go to a place so far away
To the place where you are mine
Where the love of God is the reason
That we're never ever gonna lose what we find
To the place where freedom reigns
And the death and the suffering is no more
Take my hand girl, I will meet you there
And we'll walk to the place where we praise the Lord
Nothing's ever gonna bring you down
If you walk with your head up in the clouds
Nothing's ever gonna make you scared
When you know that I'm always gonna be right here
Nothing's ever gonna make you cry
When you know that nothing in the world will ever die
And you know that you will never lose your mind
If you listen to the words that will get you high

You, you took my pride
I, feel good inside
Now that I can see
The reason for humility

I, I used to be
So, so blind you see
And I left you there
In my world of fear

But now that I've grown
And I'm here alone
I can finally see
All the things that you were to me

Cos you, you gave me light
To hide the darkness
When I couldn't see
You shared your love and truth with me

There's so many things that I could say to you
(Would you hear me?)
'cos when I'm with you baby I can see the truth
('cos I don't know)
But I don't want to build this house upon the sand
(The truth is freedom)
I want to show you who I really am (really am)

Let's go to a place so far away
To the place where you are mine
Where the love of God is the reason
That we're never ever gonna lose what we find
To the place where freedom reigns
And the death and the suffering is no more
Take my hand girl, I will meet you there
And we'll walk to the place where we praise the Lord
Nothing's ever gonna bring you down
If you walk with your head up in the clouds
Nothing's ever gonna make you scared
When you know that I'm always gonna be right here
Nothing's ever gonna make you cry
When you know that nothing in the world will ever die
And you know that you will never lose your mind
If you listen to the words that will get you high
