Track Name: SHADES OF GREY
SHADES OF GREY

Black suits and telephones
Today’s news endless yawns
Is this you or just a clone
Heading back home
Thanks to you I’m not alone
Heading back home

In your eyes no longer there
That fairy tale we used to share
What if life was down to this?
Worthless pennies
The latest apple on a tray
They killed the fairies

You wanna be rich you wanna be fit
You wanna make love candle lit
You wanna be someone someday
You wanna be red when all is grey
Take my hand and pray.

Pack it up and start again
Everyday is just insane
Rush for your time catch up the days
We’re going nowhere
The weeks the months you give away
These take you nowhere

You wanna be rich you wanna be fit
You wanna make love candle lit
You wanna be someone someday
You wanna be red when all is grey

But your future's not to hire
Unfold what may
When your faith is no desire
Just shades of grey...
Track Name: GENERATION Y
GENERATION Y

If I’m better at home - If I don’t go out late
Is that I like to sit around alone
And hate the people I hate

I get scared of crowds - And to my shrink i swear
“Yet I know tons of friends I can poke
And I can like what you like”

I’m gonna comb my hair - I’m A-dress up tight
I’m A-walk the streets haven’t been out for weeks
I can feel I need some air tonight

Is this what I came for?
Did I have that in mind?
G-Generation Y
Is this what I crave for?
The life I had in mind?
G-Generation Y

If I can live a life - And live it day by day while
Strumming my guitar
A couple Grammy’s on the way

A man can have his dreams but - Still has to pay the rent
Seems like a plan to go for fame & recognition
When you’re broke

Now I have seven hours - In seven days
In which to prove the state is wrong
That I am on the righteous way

Do I still have to pay the bill?
If it’s colder inside
I’ve got a couple cruise-ship tickets free
If you fancy the ride
Will I smoke them cigarettes?
I’m told there’s cancer inside
Will I drink myself to sleep?
And put it all on you tube
Get a million hits...
Track Name: BY YOUR SIDE
BY YOUR SIDE

Like a thorn in your spine
A grip you want loose
A fly in your glass of wine
Like a voice in your head
A trip you don't choose
A book you've already read...

Like a shot to the head
The knot to the noose
A word you so dearly regret
Like an urge to a piss
Just a note on your list
Something you can easily dismiss

This feeling you get and you're too proud to wonder
How worse can it get and when will you scarper?
By your side
I've been waiting, fighting by your side
I’ve been painting my life in black & white
I’ve been fleeing deserting every fight
I’ve been waiting inside

If there's no one to blame
If it's nobody's fault
Then who made the rules to this game?
It’s a trap that you've staged
The decision is yours
A bird in an open cage

I’m the glint to your fire
I’m the price to the gold
The foundation below your empire
Either one of us quits
And if that should be me
I won't engage in this battle of wits

I've been waiting
I buried my soul deep underground
I've been hiding too long conspiring by your side
Raise your hopes and do yourself a favour
Track Name: CASTANEDA
CASTANEDA

Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like
Without those little voices in my head…
I feel I’m drifting
The boat is rocking
My feet are tied and my head high up in the clouds

I guess there's always been that little angel
Speaking out loud
I could blame this on education if I wasn't so proud

Cause I wanna be up high where the eagles fly
Me and Jerry Garcia chillin' drinking whiskey and rye
Cause I wanna be up high where the eagles fly
Cause I wanna be high tonight

So many roads
Decisions linger with no excuse
But frankly Scarlett I don't give a damn
Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I wonder how much
We really know 'bout our own inner-selves

I guess there's always been that little angel
Speaking out loud
I could blame this on education if I wasn't so proud

Cause I wanna be up high where the eagles fly
Me and Jerry Garcia chillin' drinking whiskey and rye
Cause I wanna be up high where the eagles fly
Cause I wanna be high tonight

I guess there's always been that little devil
Speaking out loud
You’ll never be seeing the big picture high
On champagne and wine
Track Name: THE BETTER MAN
THE BETTER MAN

Baby
I was told once before
That maybe if I’d taken care of you a little more
We’d be laughing and holding each other
But “together” was taken all away...

I’m crazy
But I thought I was here for more
And many oh many - Many women I adore
And feeling alive and sparkles and magic inside
Who’d give it all away?

I’m sorry I’m not the better man
It’s just sometimes it gets so blurry inside
I’m sorry I’m not the better man
Who makes you feel a little better inside
I’m just a fool...

Baby
The past few days have been a blur
And frankly I forgot your name and who you were
I was trippin’ and living a lie all over again
I wish I could take it all away

Believe me
Please just try to understand
You’d leave me
If I said I’m just a man
It’s just the way that I am I won’t change
I’m as stubborn as fuck
I won’t give it all away

And it breaks me believe me I’ve tried
To save myself from whiskey and pride
Track Name: HOLY MOTHER
HOLY MOTHER

My lady dry your tears away
The Lord is weak so I’ve heard
And though I may be miles away
The heart speaks louder than words
My lady you are high on faith
When all around you comes tumbling down
I have lost my way so many A-times
But you without fear you invited me in…

Tell me how to buy me some place
A place in your broken heart
Like a Holy Mother to me you will be
In my heart eternally

My lady cry your fears away
No word will help ease the pain
A hand to hold and tears of gold
In your eyes forever remain
An angel will come to lead the way
Over the rainbow far away
An immortal home a place to be free
'You will meet again' is for you to believe...

Tell me how to buy me some place
A place in your broken heart
Like a Holy Mother to me you will be
In my heart eternally
