SLINGSHOT

 

 

 

Walking down the riverside

Just hope and pray the dream survives

I see people walking, no people talking 

No more about the silver line, just

Flippin’ through the rhythms and chasin‘ dimes

I see people walking, no people talking no more

 

These drums are working overtime 

Like a beat box rhythm coming down to the line

Like a slingshot pulled to the end of the wind

This stone is going to 

Hit you hard, you’ll be seeing the stars

With a vision you’re in prison 

But you can’t see the bars

Livin’ ain’t a given if you trust a mirage

This stone is going to fly

 

Walking down the long street to Rossi town

Just thinking I would drop in to check out the sound

I see people talking no people stopping to

Think about the reason why they’re stuck in the sound 

Like a bucket full of marbles going round and round

I see people stalking the people rocking no more

 

These drums are working overtime 

Like a beat box rhythm coming down to the line

Like a slingshot pulled to the end of the wind

This stone is going to 

Hit you hard, you’ll be seeing the stars

With a vision you’re in prison 

But you can’t see the bars

Livin’ ain’t a given if you trust a mirage

This stone is going to fly

I, I, this stone is going to fly

 

Thinkin’ I can save you

By giving you my debut

But if you got the same view

People ain’t buying that shit no more

Thinkin’ I can write you

Something to excite you

Something to ignite you

But how can I if you take my voice

 

These drums are working overtime 

Like a beat box rhythm coming down to the line

Like a slingshot pulled to the end of the wind

This stone is going to 

Hit you hard, you’ll be seeing the stars

With a vision you’re in prison 

But you can’t see the bars

Livin’ ain’t a given if you trust a mirage

This stone is going

 

These drums are working overtime 

Like a beat box rhythm coming down to the line

Like a slingshot pulled to the end of the wind

This stone is going to 

Hit you hard, you’ll be seeing the stars

With a vision you’re in prison 

But you can’t see the bars

Livin’ ain’t a given if you trust a mirage

This stone is going to fly

 

 

 

FAMO

 

 

 

Famo, famo, gamo, game over

Now show me what you got

Famo, famo, gamo, game over

Now show me what you got

 

I saw your face on some magazine 

But it was mainly Photoshop

Trying to see what was underneath and 

What I saw was hot

 

They say that the eyes are 

The windows to your soul

And the soul is all we got

It’s not about the makeup 

Don’t fake it, wake up 

We don’t have to be famous

 

You’ve got your diamond rings

And a whole lot of pretty things

But your fame doesn’t mean a thing to me 

It’s your love

I want it

 

Just saw the post on your Insta-feed

But it was like every other shot

I wanna see beyond the debris of

Everything you bought 

 

Hey, hey 

I’ve got an eye for the beautiful

Whoa, you’ve got it

It’s not about the makeup

Don’t fake it, wake up

We don’t have to be famous

 

You’ve got your diamond rings

And a whole lot of pretty things

But your fame doesn’t mean a thing to me 

It’s your love

I want it

 

Famo, famo, gamo, game over

Now show me what you got

 

We’re all the same in this fight to breathe

It’s either in, out or stop

It’s what we do in the in-between that

Makes us famous for what

True love is blind to the ego 

Needs to feel you, whoa

 

You’ve got your diamond rings

And a whole lot of pretty things

But your fame doesn’t mean a thing to me 

It’s your love

 

When the curtains come to close

Will time erase the show

And all the people that have known you

Will they remember 

Will they remember you

 

Got your diamond rings

And a whole lot of pretty things

But your fame doesn’t mean a thing to me 

It’s your love

 

Not your diamond rings

And a whole lot of pretty things

Your fame doesn’t mean a thing to me

It’s your love

I want it

 

 

 

MIRROR

 

 

 

Lights go on

You take a step, the curtains draw

Every eye upon the stage

You take a breath and lift your gaze

Echoes calling out your name 

To play the game you serenade

When the lights go on

When the lights go on, they’re calling out your name

 

Where lies your secret

Is it in the stars

And where are the keepers

The keepers of your heart

And where are the feelings that had brought you here

Now you’re standing there in front of me face to face

Then the lights go on

Then the lights go on, they’re calling out your name

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall

You’ve said it all and you’ve gone too far

This is the moment when you have to go

Mirror, your reflection’s been 

My only view of everything but you are

You’re only a reflection when the lights go on

 

Oh time stay still

I’m short on breath, my page is full

We’re slipping through the hourglass

I’m caught in sand, but this won’t last

Echoes all around me say the names, but they all fade away

When the lights go on

When the lights go on

They’re calling out my name

 

Where lies my secret

Is it in the stars

And where are the keepers

The keepers of my heart

And where are the feelings that had brought me here

Now I’m standing here in front of you face to face

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall

You’ve said it all and you’ve gone too far

This is the moment when you have to go

Mirror, your reflection’s been 

My only view of everything but you are

You’re only a reflection when the lights go on

 

There you stand and there I lay

Broken pieces, but I will find a way

Lights go on, lights go on

When the lights go on

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall

You’ve said it all and you’ve gone too far

This is the moment when you have to go

Mirror, your reflection’s been 

My only view of everything but you are

You’re only a reflection when the lights go on

 

 

 

CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS

 

 

 

Sometimes I wonder if you hear me

Sometimes, Father, Father, forgive me

Sometimes I’m lost in my religion

I’m a part of this confusion

But I want this separation to end

 

The other night I went to bed and the 

Dreams that flashed into my head

Were coming at me like a train

I was paralysed

 

Caught in the headlights

 

Not knowing where I’d run to

Not knowing where you’d gone

I was standing there 

In my hands was a smoking gun

 

Will I run, will I hide 

When I’m caught in the light

Did my words just give me away

I am frozen in time and I can’t rewind

To find a better way

I’m here now

I failed to look, the lightning has struck

And I’ve never felt so afraid

Cuz I’m caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

 

My whole world was spinning round as I 

Faced every sight and sound 

On this night, in a moment of time

I saw my life

 

Caught in the headlights

 

Trying to wake up from this dream

But I’m falling deeper to sleep 

I’m fighting to breathe, will I

 

Run, will I hide 

When I’m caught in the light

Did my words just give me away

I am frozen in time and I can’t rewind

To find a better way

I’m here now

I failed to look, the lightning has struck

And I’ve never felt so afraid

Cuz I am caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

 

Crashing down in the broken sounds

I’m falling, falling, falling

Then I wake up to the sound of my voice

I’m calling, calling, calling

 

Run, run, run, run

 

Will I run, will I hide 

When I’m caught in the light

Did my words just give me away

I’m frozen in time and I can’t rewind

To find a better way

I’m here now

I failed to look, the lightning has struck

And I’ve never felt so afraid

I’ve never felt so afraid

Will I run, will I hide 

When I’m caught in the light

Did my words just give me away

Did they give me away

I’m frozen in time and I can’t rewind

To find a better way

Whoa, I failed to look, the lightning has struck

And I’ve never felt so afraid

Cuz I am caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

Caught in the headlights

 

 

 

HOT ROCK FIVE

 

 

 

Time has come and it tells me now 

That when you walked through that door

Didn’t know that it all would lead to nothing like before

I’m listening to the melody start the beat 

not waiting any more

 

Turn up the lights, turn up the sound

Till everybody comes around

No-nobody knows where we’re gonna go

What we all know is we need

 

We need a Hot Rock feeling and love is gonna bring a

Hot Rock meaning we all are gonna hear the 

Hot Rock beating b-boom we’re gonna live a

Hot Rocking beautiful life

 

Hot Rock feeling

 

Of all the people that I could meet, it always had to be you

There’s nothing the world can do to stop me loving you

Are you listening 

To the echoing of the beat of those who’ve come before

Are you listening

 

Turn up the lights, turn up the sound

Till everybody comes around

No-nobody knows where we’re gonna go

What we all know is we need

 

We need a Hot Rock feeling and love is gonna bring a

Hot Rock meaning we all are gonna hear the 

Hot Rock beating b-boom we’re gonna live a

Hot Rocking beautiful life

 

When A Light Hits A Legendary Land Again

Shadows Part, A Rocking Rainbow Overhead He Said

It is done, now the waters come

The waters come

 

Time has come, turn the wheel

The lost and the broken are healed

 

With a Hot Rock feeling and love is gonna bring a

Hot Rock meaning we all are gonna hear the 

Hot Rock beating b-boom we’re gonna live a

Hot rocking beautiful life

 

We need a Hot Rock feeling and love is gonna bring a

Hot Rock meaning we all are gonna hear the

Hot Rock beating b-boom we’re gonna live a

Hot rocking beautiful life

We need a Hot Rock feeling and love is gonna bring a

Hot Rock meaning we all are gonna hear the

Hot Rock beating b-boom we’re gonna live a

Hot Rocking beautiful life

 

 

 

MANNEQUIN

 

 

 

Soldier on in this war so long

Weren’t you building me a castle in the sky

I’m holding on though the fire is gone

What I’m living now is just a beautiful lie

But I’m running out of time

 

A mannequin, in your world I’m in

I’ve been locked inside 

I’ve cried and cried

But la, la, mannequin

Your plastic skin is so cold and thin 

And those stone cold eyes 

they aren’t alive

Oh, la, la, mannequin

 

Motion’s gone, this picture’s wrong

When you called me in 

You sold me on this part

Now I’ve been standing here

For what seems like years

In this torn up winter gown

I’m falling down 

But there’s a heartbeat left in me

 

I am no mannequin, in your world I’m in

I’ve been locked inside, I’ve cried and cried

But la, la, mannequin

Your plastic skin is so cold and thin 

And those stone cold eyes, they aren’t alive

Oh, la, la, mannequin

 

The walls are closing in as

I’ve been dancing in the dark

The record’s set to spin

But I still don’t know

Where you are

We’ve fallen out of love and

It’s like we’ve been here before

I’m calling, calling, calling

The walls are closing in as

I’ve been dancing in the dark

The record’s set to spin

But I still don’t know

Where you are

We’ve fallen out of love and

It’s like we’ve been here before

I’m calling, calling you

 

I am no mannequin

In your world I’m in

I’ve been locked inside

I’ve cried & cried

But la, la, mannequin

Your plastic skin is so cold and thin

And your stone cold eyes

They aren’t alive

Oh la, la, mannequin

 

Soldier on in this war so long

Weren’t you building me

A castle in the sky

 

 

 

GRAVITY

 

 

 

I dream a dream

I see you fly so high 

Up there with the angels

Out of sight

 

I search the sky

But you’re not there

Tell me where

Tell me when

 

You fall and I will catch you

It doesn’t matter where you are

You fall and I will catch you

You’ll be landing in my arms

 

I dream a dream

I’m mesmerised by the light

The colours of your rainbow

It breaks the night

 

Time stays still

You reappear through the clouds

Falling back to earth now

But I’ll be here

 

You fall and I will catch you

It doesn’t matter where you are

You fall and I will catch you

You’ll be landing in my arms

 

Cuz you trust in the hands 

That lifted you and

You know that when you fall, for sure

They’ll be there when gravity is 

Pulling you back once more

When you land in the arms that are open wide

They will move in to hold you strong

It won’t be long

Till these hands will give you 

The force you need to fly

 

You fall and I will catch you

I will catch you

It doesn’t matter where you are

It doesn’t matter where you are

You fall and I will catch you

You’ll be landing in my arms

 

You fall and I will catch you

When you come crashing down

It doesn’t matter where you are

Falling to the ground

You fall and I will catch you

You’ll be landing in my arms

 

You fall and I will catch you

It doesn’t matter where you are

You fall and I will catch you

You’ll be landing in my arms

 

 

 

VOLCANO

 

 

 

Marching forward, always onward

Was the life of this noble broken soldier

I would rise when you call me under orders

To serve the empire

Glory and honour surrender before her

My sword will never return

To the days of my innocence 

I wonder the worth of what I got

 

Ohhh stop, Ohhh stop

 

Hey-yo, le-let me go

I don’t owe you no more

Love, love was never meant to be so cold

Hey-yo, I’m not alone, I know, I know there is someone

Someone who loves me like a volcano 

Hey-yo, le-let me go

I don’t owe you no more

Love, love was never meant to be so cold

Hey-yo, I’m not alone, I know, I know there is someone

Someone who loves me like a volcano 

 

Fire’s burning, growing stronger

This knight is taking off his armour

I lay down before you under the shoulders

Of the most beautiful woman, you have come

To save me from defeat 

From the flames of my dreams, the greed and plunder

This war is over, stop

 

Ohhh stop, Ohhh stop

 

Hey-yo, le-let me go

I don’t owe you no more

Love, love was never meant to be so cold

Hey-yo, I’m not alone, I know, I know there is someone

Someone who loves me like a volcano

Hey-yo le-let me go

I don’t owe you no more

Love, love was never meant to be so cold

Hey-yo, I’m not alone, I know, I know there is someone

Someone who loves me like a volcano 

 

Ohhh stop, Ohhh stop

Ohhh stop, Ohhh stop

 

You’ve taken everything all I have is love x3

This war is over now

This war is over

Hey-yo, Hey-yo

 

Hey-yo, le-let me go

I don’t owe you no more

Love, love was never meant to be so cold

Hey-yo I’m not alone, I know, I know there is someone

Someone who loves me like a volcano

 

 

 

LIFE SAVER

 

 

 

Stepped into the doorway 

Of a world I didn’t know

Feeling pretty lost 

I was so far from home

Caught between the pages, a hole

Unfinished song

You treat me like a saviour 

But I know that I’ve been wrong

 

I wanna say sorry for what I did, I said 

I say I’m sorry for the life I led 

I wanna say sorry

Please give me one more time

I’ve been sinking in this water 

And only YOU can throw the line

 

Life Saver, I need a light to lead me home

Cuz I’ve fallen really hard 

I’m broken down and scarred 

Under waves that take my soul

I need a Life Saver, Life Saver, Oh

 

Open up the pages help me re-write this song

Tear down the image that I’m a saviour, I’m a god

If you love me, free me, if you love me I pray

Give me a chance to say to you

I’m not afraid to say

 

I say I’m sorry for what I did, I said

 I say I’m sorry for the life I led

I wanna say sorry, please give me one more time

I’ve been sinking in this water

And only YOU can throw the line

 

Life saver I need a

Light to lead me home

Cuz I’ve fallen really hard

I’m broken down and scarred

Under waves that take my soul

I need a Life Saver, Life Saver, Oh

 

Please hear me

Please hear me

Please help me to know

That you forgive me

You forgive me

And you won’t let me go

 

Life Saver I need a

Light to lead me home

Cuz I’ve fallen really hard

I’m broken down and scarred

Under waves that take my soul

I need a Life Saver, I need a

Light to lead me home

Cuz I’ve fallen really hard

I’m broken down and scarred

Under waves that take my soul

I need a Life Saver, Life Saver, Oh

 

 

 

SMILE

 

 

 

Smile at me 

There’s so much life left to be living

Smile at me

Send a wave to tell me “Hey there”

Smile at me

We can build a bridge to 

Cross our broken dreams

Smile away 

 

Smile at me

Take the time to 

Fall in love with simplicity

Smile at me

Show me there’s a way 

For us to be at peace

Smile at me

We can change the things 

That are not meant to be

Smile away

 

Every rose has its thorns

On some of our days it storms

And the road that leads you home

Ain’t always paved in gold

But along the way

There’s a man who stays

On the roadside with a sign that says

Smile, you’re alive today

 

Smile at me

There’s something in the way I hear you speak

Smile at me

Tell me everything you know, cuz I believe

In you, and every dream 

That we can yet achieve

Smile away

 

Every rose has its thorns

On some of our days it storms

And the road that leads you home

Ain’t always paved in gold

But along the way

There’s a man who stays

On the roadside with a sign that says

Smile you’re alive today

 

Hey you, hey, it’s me 

And I have come to say, smile

Hey you, hey, it’s me 

And I have come to say, smile

Hey you, hey, it’s me 

And I have come to say

Smile

 

Every rose has its thorns

On some of our days it storms

And the road that leads you home

Ain’t always paved in gold

But along the way

There’s a man who stays

On the roadside with a sign that says

Smile, you’re alive today

 

 

 

WE DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY

 

 

 

We don’t want your money

We don’t need your fame

We got something better 

Than to play your little games

We don’t need your car

We don’t need to be your stars

We got “Oohs” we got “Aahhs”

We got you and we got us

Hey, hey

 

Your perfect conversation 

Is like water to a duck

We’ve been swimming in your rivers

But it’s really more like muck

 

Leave my life alone

You better leave my life alone

 

Your jokes are pretty funny

But this one’s now on you

You’re naked, it’s a little lame

When you’re standing next to truth

 

Leave my life alone

You gotta leave my life alone

 

We don’t want your money

We don’t need your fame

We got something better 

Than to play your little games

We don’t need your car

We don’t need to be your stars

We got “Oohs” we got “Aahhs”

We got you and we got us

Hey, hey

 

Time is really short man

You gotta give me space to move

You can take your stinkin’ dollars

Now the flies are all on you

 

Leave my life alone

You better leave my life alone

 

You say you’re good with numbers

But this don’t add up mate

You’re in love with a little digit 

That took you sixty years to make

 

Leave my life alone

You gotta leave my life alone

 

We don’t want your money

We don’t need your fame

We got something better 

Than to play your little games

We don’t need your car

We don’t need to be your stars

We got “Oohs” we got “Aahhs”

We got you and we got us

 

I’ve got a song on my lips

And a guitar in my hands

I’ve got a story to tell

And friends, it’s nothing you can pay for

It’s nothing you can pay for

 

We don’t want your money

We don’t need your fame

We got something better 

Than to play your little games

We don’t need your car

We don’t need to be your stars

We got “Oohs” we got “Aahhs”

We got you, we got us 

 

We don’t want your money

 

 

 

HIGH TIDE

 

 

 

It’s four in the morning, the day is just beginning

A pot of warm coffee it welcomes me

To a window overlooking the southern sea

There she lay, she lay in her beautiful sway

 

Sound the horn, ahoy, ahoy

All aboard the Morning Glory

Another day, another story and we all sing

 

High tide

We’re off to the battle, high tide

We’re solving the riddle, high tide

Not caught in the middle 

We’re gone before the fiddler 

Can play his final line 

High tide, 

We’re stocked up and fitted, high tide

The anchors are all lifted, high tide

The course has been given 

The saga’s just beginning 

In the words it has been written

High tide

 

Row! Water spraying on an army of faces

Row! Pushing hard against time it races

Row! Open ocean, it lays before me like a grave

A grave or a beautiful stage

 

Cannon blows with the crack of thunder

Fire glows in a heated wonder

We’re not going down

We’ll shout it out and we all sing

 

High tide

We’re off to the battle, high tide

We’re solving the riddle, high tide

Not caught in the middle

We’re gone before the fiddler

Can play his final line

High tide

We’re stocked up and fitted, high tide

The anchors are all lifted, high tide

The course has been given

The saga’s just beginning

In the words it has been written

High tide

 

Lay it down, lay it down 

Lay it down, lay it down

It’s the sound in the sound 

In the sound in the sound

Breathe it out, breathe it out 

Breathe it in, breathe it out

The waters are lifting and 

The tide has been shifting 

 

Lay it down, lay it down

Lay it down, lay it down

It’s the sound in the sound 

In the sound in the sound

Breathe it out, breathe it out 

Breathe it in, breathe it out

The waters are lifting 

And the tide has been shifting

High tide

 

Row!

 

We’re off to the battle, high tide

We’re solving the riddle, high tide

Not caught in the middle

We’re gone before the fiddler

Can play his final line 

High tide

We’re stocked up and fitted, high tide

The anchors are all lifted, high tide

The course has been given

The saga’s just beginning

In the words it has been written

High tide

 

We’re off to the battle, high tide

We’re solving the riddle, high tide

Not caught in the middle
