NAKED

 

 

 

Sometimes when you see her

You don’t have words to say

Lost in your position

you turn the other way

 

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do now 

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do - ooh – ooh – ooh – ooh

 

When the music stops, but you were feeling hot

You’re caught naked on the dance floor

You’re trying to find a reason 

But you find yourself running out the door

 

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do now

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do - ooh – ooh – ooh – ooh, woohoo

 

N. A. K. E. D 

Now you’re checkin’ out

Cuz here comes the competition

N. A. K. E. D 

Like the emperor you’re 

Begging me for adoration

N. A. K. E. D 

But all I can see is you naked on the dance floor

And it feels like you’re falling down

Naked, naked

 

What I want is what I see

There’s no reason to play make-believe

If I wanted something like a Breakfast menu muffin

I’d go to McDonalds... naked

Woohoo, naked

 

If you got a heart, double beat it now

Instead of squirming like a tadpole

You’re trying to find a reason

But I find myself running out the door

 

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do now

She’s making a fool out of you

What you gonna do - ooh - ooh - ooh - ooh, woohoo

 

N. A. K. E. D 

Now you’re checkin’ out

Cuz here comes the competition

N. A. K. E. D 

Like the emperor you’re 

Begging me for adoration

N. A. K. E. D 

But all I can see is you naked on the dance floor

And it feels like you’re falling down

Naked, naked

 

What do you want from me

What do you want from me

Do you wanna hug, do you wanna cry

Stop using me for your alibis

What do you want from me

What do you want from me

 

Unless you’re getting down here to become

The king of the crowd

Then I caught you walking with a limp

You got your pants on the ground

What it means is naked, naked

Unless you’re getting down here to become

The king of the crowd

Then I caught you walking with a limp

You got your pants on the ground

What it means is naked, naked

 

N. A. K. E. D

Now you’re checkin’ out

Cuz here comes the competition

N. A. K. E. D

Like the emperor you’re

Begging me for adoration

N. A. K. E. D

But all I can see is you

Naked on the dance floor

And it feels like you’re falling down

Naked, naked

 

What do you want from me

What do you want from me

What do you want from me

What do you want from me

 

NAKED

 

 

 

PAPER HERO

 

 

 

Everybody’s got a hero

And a hero’s got a name

Every hero’s got a villain 

And someone he can blame, hey

 

Who’s your hero

Who’s your hero

 

Paper Man to Boogie Man 

At the comic strip bar

I will be anything you want but give me a heart

I’m gonna be a hero, gonna be a hero

 

Boogie Man to Paper Man

That’s gonna be hard

Even if I could give you one 

That would not fit the part

 

Cuz you’re a hero, a paper hero

And you don’t need to save anyone for real

Just on paper, recycled paper, hey

 

Jester comes to hunt you down and fool everyone

He steals your crown and jumps around

Entertainment is fun

Now who’s your hero

You or he, oh

 

A hero’s looking better when he’s hopeless in love

We’ll script you in a woman

She’ll be filling the fluff

She needs a hero, a sexy hero

 

Now you fight the fool 

Take back the crown

You save the world

It’s simple in Tinsel Town

 

Cuz you’re a hero, a paper hero

And you don’t need to save anyone for real

Just on paper, recycled paper

 

What about the dragons in the world that are for real

Will the paper hero be the one to save and heal

What about the lonely nights when there is no one

Will the paper hero be there to give me love

 

Cuz you’re a hero, a paper hero

And you don’t need to save anyone for real

 

Cuz you’re a hero, a paper hero

And you don’t need to save anyone for real

Just on paper

 

 

 

STOLEN WORD

 

 

 

Walking down the city streets alone

Looking round for a place to call my home

I see a light in a window glowing

I step inside I find there one chair

There’s a table all prepared for me I see

The moment I feel it coming 

 

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

A gentle breeze the door is open wide

And there you are moving gracefully inside

Every eye is on you, you’re glowing

Like a fire you burn the winter night

Coming closer to me

Oh, the light, Oh, the light

 

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

I’ve gotta know that you have come for me

I’ve gotta know that you are not a dream 

I gotta know, I gotta know

I’ve gotta know our love is in the stars

I’ve gotta know that love is where we are

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

You sit beside me you fill my lonely ghost

It’s a feeling that I have never known

You put a rhythm inside me, it’s growing

I close my eyes, I scream a silent prayer

I gotta know that you will always be there for me

Be there for me, Oh

 

I’ve gotta know that you have come for me

I’ve gotta know that you are not a dream

I gotta know, I gotta know

I’ve gotta know our love is in the stars

I’ve gotta know that love is where we are

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

Love is such a stolen word

We’ll get it back when we learn

How to mean it, how to live it, how it grows

 

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

I’ve gotta know that you have come for me

I’ve gotta know that you are not a dream

I gotta know, I gotta know

I’ve gotta know our love is in the stars

I’ve gotta know that love is where we are

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

I’ve gotta know that you have come for me

I’ve gotta know that you are not a dream

I gotta know, I gotta know

I’ve gotta know that you have come for me

I’ve gotta know that you are not a dream

I gotta know, I gotta know

I’ve gotta know our love is in the stars

I’ve gotta know that love is where we are

I gotta know, I gotta know

 

Love is such a stolen word

We’ll get it back when we learn

 

 

 

THE POPE

 

 

 

Picking up the pieces, my broken heart

The sun is shining, but I am lost

How can I find my way

How can I find my way

 

I hear the Pope is coming down

Walking on unholy ground

I see an angel at my door

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

Who’s that moving the shower blinds

Come again some other time, you can beat it

Cuz you ain’t gonna have my soul

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

Working hard on endless nights

Walking down the blade of a knife

One misstep and then I’m in free-fall

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Talking to the other side

Turning blue from the smell of shite

Hey, you forgot to close the door

What are you waiting for

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

Tell me why the river’s dry

It’s been that way a long, long time

I need an angel and a board

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

I’m pushing down the overflow

I wanna see where this angel goes, I’m surfin’

Gonna kick back the clock for sure

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

Working hard on endless nights

Walking down the blade of a knife

One misstep and then I’m in free-fall

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Talking to the other side

Turning blue from the smell of shite

Hey, you forgot to close the door

What are you waiting for

 

Who, who, who-ah  x4

 

1, 2, 3

 

I’m gonna take my chance with the go-go-flow

I’m gonna kick it cuz I want more

You can beat it, then repeat it, I want it all

No holding back cuz of yesterday

Nobody’s digging my grave no, no

You can beat it, then repeat it

What are you waiting for

 

Working hard on endless nights (Working hard)

Walking down the blade of a knife (Blade of a knife)

One misstep and then I’m in free-fall (I’m in free fall)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Talking to the other side (Talking to you)

Turning blue from the smell of shite

Hey, you forgot to close the door

What are you waiting for

 

Who, who, who are you coming for

Who, who, who are you coming for

 

 

 

GOLD DIGGER

 

 

 

Beyond the mountain was the gold I thought I’d find

I followed the fountain that the legends left behind 

Smokey waters and the fog that never clears

Is where they all would go when the old ghost appeared 

 

Then the rumbling sound came loudly in and we could see

Time was crashing down, the mountain crumbling

And all the wealth that was inside

It was our lives, it was my life

 

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Till it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Till it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

 

Homecoming was so cold, I was so scared

Lying there my little ones were filled with tears

I’d give all the world to say just one final word

But I could not be heard

I was not really there

 

Brother, friend now will you hear me well

This is the story that I’ve come so far to tell

When all the world is far behind

It was your life

The love in your life

 

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Until it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Till it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh

 

And what I wanna say to you

Cuz I never said goodbye

The day that I was taken

I didn’t really die

I still see it in their faces

The love of you and I

It is real

But the gold was just a lie

 

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Till it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

That was my life

Gold digger in life

I was misinformed

Everything I was taught since I was born

Live with no regrets

I was my lord 

Till it all came tumbling down on me

That was my life

 

 

 

LOST IN OBLIVION

 

 

 

Take off the glasses from your mind 

It obscures the view

What one may love another hates

Just hope that it’s not you

Take off the glasses from the world 

That’s in your eyes

What one may hold as truth

Another sees as a lie

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion 

We’re getting lost in oblivion 

             

Every night my head falls to the pillow  

Deciphering these riddles but the 

Fog that’s on the windowsill

Wants to take me for a ride

Get to know the Devil’s bride

I can hear them screaming inside

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion 

We’re getting lost in oblivion 

 

Take off the glasses from your mind 

It obscures the view

What one may love another hates

Just hope that it’s not you

Take off the glasses from the world 

That’s in your eyes

What one may hold as truth

Another sees as a lie

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion 

We’re getting lost in oblivion

 

Chasing cars and feeling that you are

A prisoner of Azkaban

Feeling high but the dream will never die

What hope is now there of living

Taking time to rewind what you’ve done

But you find that what you’ve done is nothing

I’m sick & tired of the weasel in my mind

I’m running out of oxygen

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion

Getting lost, getting lost, getting lost

getting lost, getting lost, getting lost

We’re getting lost in oblivion

Getting lost, getting lost, getting lost

getting lost, getting lost, getting lost

 

Tonight is come, is told

All of the reasons, all of the reasons

Tonight is come, is told

All of the reasons, all of the reasons

All of the reasons

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion

Getting lost, getting lost

Getting lost, getting lost

Getting lost, getting lost

We’re getting lost in oblivion

Getting lost, getting lost

Getting lost, getting lost

Getting lost, getting lost

 

We’re getting lost in oblivion

We’re getting lost in oblivion

We’re getting lost in oblivion

RISE

 

 

 

Fear won’t stop me from going

Crossing an ocean

The great unknown

This fire oh freedom 

The apple of Eden is tearing through my soul

 

The banner of the earth forgotten

Lost on crimson tide

And all the people calling

And all the people calling

And all the people calling out

 

Rise, don’t let’m stop you, or break you 

Or hold you down, just rise

You can feel it, when you live it

And you move it, move it

Move it, move it, rise 

Game on let’s rise, rise 

 

Long gone they say are days when

Maidens were fair and fair was blind

Oh men of freedom

This apple we’ve eaten

I see now, I see now the light

 

The banner of the earth forgotten

Lost on crimson tide

And all the people calling

And all the people calling

And all the people calling out

 

Rise, don’t let’m stop you, or break you

Or hold you down, just rise

You can feel it, when you live it

And you move it, move it

Move it, move it, rise

Game on let’s rise, rise

 

Land ahoy, I greet you future

Die ye old, be gone you loser

Aye-aye we’ll cry with courage

And bravely, boldly rise

The banner of the earth forgotten

Lost on crimson tide

And all the people calling

And all the people calling

And all the people calling out

 

Rise, don’t let’m stop you, or break you

Or hold you down, just rise

You can feel it, when you live it

And you move it, move it

Move it, move it, rise

Game on let’s rise, rise

Game on let’s rise

 

Rise, don’t let’m stop you, or break you

Or hold you down, just rise

You can feel it, when you live it

And you move it, move it

Move it, move it, rise

Game on let’s rise

 

 

 

THE MASK

 

 

 

Breaking down Illusions

My mask is on

And all of the confusion

It’s all that keeps me strong

I’ve seen your face before this

Now its been far too long

Can we find each other in this song

 

Lifeless, all of the pieces are lost

Hardness, all I can see are the flaws

Timeless spent living in my thoughts

I’m breaking down

Breaking down every illusion that is false

Every feeling I was feeding at this cost

The mask is off

My heart is on

 

My days of make-believe are over

You’re gonna know the story of this soldier

Breaking down

Every reason to feel that I would go under

I want it now

To see the beautiful face that’s in the mirror

The mask is off

 

Breathing out

I’m breathing now

We’ve crossed the great delusion

No lie to tie me down

Your face to me is glorious

Now it won’t be too long

Till we find each other in this song

 

Night is over and we greet you dawn

Time keeps what we do in love after all

Life is a reflection of my thoughts

I’m facing down

Facing down every demon that did haunt

Every fear I was feeding at this cost

The mask is off

My heart is on

 

My days of make-believe are over

You’re gonna know the story of this soldier

Breaking down

Every reason to feel that I would go under

I want it now

To see the beautiful face that’s in the mirror

The mask is off

 

The mask was hollow and the picture ending loveless

But that’s over now (That’s over now)

That’s over now (That’s over now)

That’s over now

That’s over now

 

My days of make-believe are over

You’re gonna know the story of this soldier

I’m breaking down

Every reason to feel that I would go under

I want it now

To see the beautiful face that’s in the mirror

The mask is off

 

 

 

PEOPLE

UNSTOPPABLE

 

 

 

I see you sitting down there loving your throne

But what’s catching my eye 

Is the writing on the wall

Unstoppable

 

You’ve been playing with the storyline 

But now its revealed

All your heroes are lookin’ shabby 

And the game is for real

Unstoppable

 

Knight takes the bishop

And your king is exposed

While your queen has been cornered

And your pawns are all off the board

 

Your final move is sheer madness

You’ve been checkmated into the grandest 

moment of your life

You’ve fallen in love

Unstoppable 

 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable 

 

Your kingdom’s overthrown 

But your gain is surreal

All the players you’ve been playing 

Would have lost out to this deal

Unstoppable

 

Your taking a vacation cuz your whits are at large

All your reasons out the window

Cuz your heart is now the one in charge

Unstoppable

 

You’ve lost but you found out 

That part of the deal

You win a life that’s pretty sexy 

And a love thats got you on your heels

 

You’re caught in the rhythm you’re dancing

Your moves are nothing short of fantastic

The moment of your life

You’ve fallen in love

 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable

 

Who says that life would be over

When he stands and surrenders to love

This game of thrones is so old now

We cannot lose now

When we’re one (x13)

1,2,3

 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable 

We’re unstoppable

True be to the real man

Rolling with the big plan

You’ll know what I am

I am unstoppable

 

 

 

RAIN

 

 

 

Sun is rising from the east 

I see this breaking light come sweeping over me, oh

It takes my mind as it caught my eye

And now it’s tearing through into a burning sky

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh-oh

 

I played the game it was yesterday 

I still feel the restriction that was busting my veins

But this time there’s no alibi 

Just a seething addiction I was trying to hide, ooh-ooh-oh

 

(The rain’s coming down over me)

Like a river rushing, a fountain soaring

A water pouring through me now

(The rain’s coming down over me)

I need to know you, oh, I need to know you

Oh, oh, I need to know you

The rain’s coming down over me

 

I faced the night like a firefly

Alone in a vision I was starting to die

And I was fading out, I was starting to cry 

Oh, where is your light, oh where is your light

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh , whoa, whoa, whoa-oh-oh

 

And there you are like an avatar 

I’m not alone in existence but I’m falling hard, oh

You break the night, you save my life 

As I’m screaming this isn’t the way that I die, No-ohh-oh

 

(The rain’s coming down over me)

The rain is falling down and the beat of thunder’s sounding

(The rain’s coming down over me)

The water’s all around and moving through me now

I need to know you, oh, I need to know you 

Oh, oh, I need to know you

The rain’s coming down over me

 

The rain falling down, kiss the wind

This hurricane of love is all too real 

And now I feel that I am in another world 

than you see here

The flame that lights the night 

Ignites the rain that was your tears

 

(The rain’s coming down over me)

Like a river rushing, a fountain soaring

A water pouring through me now

(The rain’s coming down over me)

I need to know you, oh, I need to know you

Oh, oh, I need to know you

The rain’s coming down over me

 

And now I’m free
