I wonder what you’re thinking as minutes tick away where else you’d rather be spending your days another glimpse of sun and then the morning come Don’t worry about your feelings they care about your joy you know how does it feel being their toy unite we can stop them ‘cause they’re stealing our time unite we can stop them ‘cause they’re stealing our lives the plan already spoken is waiting to be applied the system then will fall from the inside Unite we can stop them ‘cause they’re stealing our time Unite we can stop them ‘cause they’re stealing our lives another glimpse of sun and the new dusk will come and soon will come the day you’re going to hear them say “another glimpse of sun and then repeat its way...”

Game over, no time for goodbyes, looks like the end of this journey. Computer, who knows where I am lost in this kind of an hyperspace Red star, wherever you are, give us a new meaning Red star, wherever you are, lead us to forgiving. Suspended in cryogenic sleep, rocked by the waves of a pulsar. The lifetime that I left behind, waiting to come to the age of light. Red star, wherever you are, give us a new meaning Red star, wherever you are, lead us to forgiving.

Nicotine, Nicotine, I won’t kiss you goodbye, bitter taste that makes me high. Don’t be so bad to me, cause today I’m sad kiss my lips one more time, after all we’re partners in crime Drown in this glass of champagne bubbles makes me high It’s everything to lose and nothing to gain Nicotine, Nicotine, you don’t cheat and don’t lie you’re my perfect aliby. Don’t sigh for me, my fire ignites and set you free there’s no love without desire, like the smoke from a distant fire Drown in this glass of champagne bubbles makes me high It’s everything to lose and nothing to gain Nicotine, Nicotine, never kiss you goodbye, bitter taste that makes me high. Nicotine, Nicotine, my best friend and ally with you till the day I die. Nicotine...

When the day's done we will fade out like empty souls no one cares about we're the fallen thoughts of an ancient dream that repeats itself whispering "we will fade we will fade out" when you fall asleep and the day's gone by you will hear us whispering our goodbye will swim with your heart and will rock your dreams when the day's done we will fade out we will fade we will fade out

Driving by, the same old town your oldsmobile, that never let you down. You look so bored think your life is waste, but you should know that standing by my side standing by my side, standing by my side, standing by my side, you won’t have to hide. Walking by an empty street, looking at your feet don’t blame yourself - you’re not so bad, so don’t be shy, ‘cause standing by my side standing by my side, standing by my side, (you’ll) never have to hide.

I will be free, and you'll have to wait only for me. Lord, please let it be, a better day for peace and melody If you leave my mind If you leave my mind You have to be a better human race in harmony. Lord, please let it be, a better day for peace and melody. If you leave my mind If you leave my mind

I feel the symptoms of spring feeling the scent of a flower that spin around, my senses on fire Can you hear an ocean of sound spending its strength upon the shore, shall sleep no more but light my desire. Give me back my days of roses but don't forget that book that closes, the wherefores and whys that led us here and now. Oh delicious circle, it took me in down the garden path and back out again, hope that drove me down the wall, screaming at my dreaming, 'don't let them fall'. Give me back my days of roses but don't forget that book that closes, the wherefores and whys that led us here and now.

I often thought I’d catch a lift to a better place and time, where money’s not a problem, love stories work out fine. Now I wander through our past (future’s been and gone), I wander I can touch the sky, with you, I’ll never die. Take my Dear John letter, better read than dead, true that I was blinded, still too easily led. Love you and then leave you… isn’t that a crime ? I still wander. I can touch the sky, now, look how free I fly. I can touch the sky, with you, I’ll never die, no love could bleed me dry, now, look how free I fly.

nderneath the mango tree me honey and me can watch for the moon. Underneath the mango tree me honey and me make boolooloop soon. Underneath the moonlit sky me honey and I can sit hand in hand. Underneath the moonlit sky me honey and I can make fairyland. Mango banana and tangerine, sugar and ackee and cocoa bean, when we get marry we make them grow, and nine little chilins' in a row. Underneath the mango tree me honey and me can watch for the moon. Underneath the mango tree me honey and me we plan marry soon. Mango banana and tangerine, sugar and ackee and cocoa bean, when we get marry we make them grow, and nine little chilins' in a row. Underneath the mango tree (4x)

Sunday morning,
saw you hanging by a thread,
spinned with a magic ply. Eerie weather,
who’s not able to complete,
led us to pass you by. Missing streams
clashes through the ocean,
takes time to unify. In your daydreams,
butterflies in light blue sky, Caught in a lullaby, 
Seems like a dream,
more a nightmare than a dream,
whispering another sigh. We got over 
this misunderstanding; 
some thoughts are hard to die.

When I fall in love I get dizzied. I fall out there's just dirt to dish, a memory to drown me in. Still, can't regret my big scene, though I acted the fool my double became a real has-been. Now that we say our goodbyes, no need for rushing crocodiles, crocodiles. When I fall in love I get dizzied. I fall out there's just dirt to dish, a memory to drown me in. Tried my best to act cool, through the roughest weather had no queues. Still, can't regret my big scene, though I acted the fool my double became a real has-been. Be there! (then I would say) funny, how you become what you've seen too much of, so I might have been. Now that we say our goodbyes, no need for rushing crocodiles, crocodiles.
