Track Name: Living on a High
Livin' on a High
It feels like what I’m doin’s right
it feels so deadly cool out there
Seein’ who I wanna see
Bein’ simply me and free
Throwin’ all the keys away
No one’s comin’ in today
They can plead and beg, whimper and wail,
Ithink ’m livin’ on a high - I’m lovin’ livin’ on a high.
Seein’ who I wanna see
Bein’ simply me and free
and better times will know no end cause
I'm living on a high
I know they would love to peer over
and think I’m gone when I am sober
but the breeze that lifts and takes me up
Sweetly offers me the liquor of luck
And I drink and drink – and I laugh so loud
the high projects me to the safest cloud
Ithink ’m livin’ on a high - I’m lovin’ livin’ on a high.
Seein’ who I wanna see
Bein’ simply me and free
the best is yet to come
My high has just begun.
I think Im livin' on a high
I'm lovin' livin' on a high
Seein' who I wanna see
Bein' simply me and free
and better times will know no end
and they can plead and wail
But I'm living on a high

Track Name: Rock My World
Rock My World

she says my dream is to never fall
ride on the highway n live it all
fly thru the skies up above the clouds
n feel the sand as the sun goes down
I wanna go n see it all
no-one will pin me down, she says
I wanna go n see it all
my time is precious
n I'd say that I would try again
I'm troublesome
a restless one, not givin in
so, I say
I am me, be it nite or mornin
flyin free in the wings of glory
I am all the trouble you can take
I am all the trouble
all the trouble you can face
I know I'll plough on, on my own
thru waves of rage n stroms
the beacon will shine on
the beacon will shine on
so rock my world

Track Name: Am I Evil
Am I Evil?

Am I evil cuz I make ya think
am I evil cuz I shock ya when I speak
does my colour matter n my beliefs kill me
can a chained slave go just cuz I wrote on him "free"
wanna make a change
or shall we just stand by
while we watch indifferently as people die
so, am I evil cuz I make ya think
am I evil cuz I shock ya when I speak
books of fables for kindergarten souls
while the rich grow fat
n the poor against the wall
stories for sale of a promised paradise
where survival is the game
win n live or lose n die
some say "I'll set ya free
if you got somethin' for me
I'll rid ya of that emotion
if you drink from my potion
n if I kill your dignity
I'll still hold my head up high
for your sorrows n your pain
are on the menu of your lifetime
so, am I evil cuz I make ya think
am I evil cuz I shock ya when I speak

Track Name: My Way Home
Way Home

I'm in a clock ticking space
but this ain't my dream
n it ain't my face
maybe I should know by now
how to figure out
the who's, why's n how's
but it's hard to see straight on a windin road
it's hard to be a wonderin soul
I am bored cuz all you do is talk
while I am tryin
I am tryin
I am learnin
I am findin my way home
I don't know how long
n I don't know how strong
but I am findin my way home
are we really without a care
is this the mask we wear
to never cross the line
n am I just a circumstance
in a far off place
wasting my time

Track Name: Love Me
Love me

love me, while I am here
kiss me, my lips are hot dear
feel me, you won't regret it
take me, you won't forget it
I am all the dreams you need
to spin your world as never seen
let me guide you and inspire you
I won't let you down
I have feeling, I have rhythm
will give you touch with equilibrium
I'll set you free or hold you down
awakening your body to a new sound
I'll give you all and I'll be your sin
you'll come around and ask for more again
I am the dream you can't control
I am the temptation in your soul
I got attitude
I'm sweet and I'm rude
I'm heaven and hell
good and bad in a nutshell
