Lyrics

Mrs.Vain

Written By: Ross Nicholson

Mrs.Vain (words and music:Ross Nicholson)

1/ Theres my modern day teacher,thers my modern day babe
youre so good i could eat ya,youre so good youre a rave
Looking good in black leather,looking good in high heels
Really good to meet you babe,now tell me whats the real deal..

Chorus: Hello Mrs.Vain,step out from the rain
Take you to a higher plain,gonna worship in your name
Hello Mrs.Vain, hanging out with Hussien
Gonna come inside your brain
Hello Mrs...Vain

2/Are you really gonna whip me,are you gonna make me moan?
I think your really,really wanting to really rock n'roll
Oh your so commanding,so high in your field
So come on sweet darling,just hit me with whats real!

Chorus.

Rap: I want to flam it,slam it,stick it and ram it;with passion and fashion,and lashings of pashing;so take it,to make it with meaning or fake it,i'll spray it to say it,why waste it ,lets play it!
I'll test you,injest you,invest you,undress you;lets do it,to move it,with gusto,lets screw it! Bitch me,or ditch me sweet lover ,enrich me;your highness in waiting,i want you sweet baby!
I really,really mean it man! I really do believe it man!
I think you really ,really need it man!So honey baby come on!
So let us never ever leave it man.Like you really could believe this plan.
I think you really need it Stan! So honey baby come on!
Chorus to end.

Good Year

Written By: Ross Nicholson

Good Year (words and music:Ross Nicholson)

Ive been waiting for a good year
Ive been thinking about the good years
Ive been wishing for a good year
The best year of our lives

Oh darling you remember(x3)
When everything was alright

Memories inside my head(x3)
Now everything has turned to red
Memories inside of my head

Baby im losing my mind(x2)
Baby im losing control
Got no rhythm got no soul
Trying to save all of mankind

(You..I love you..yes i do..all of you..)
I was lost in a lovely dream;a dream of new life
The scene was very clear and i found you
I was dreaming..of me

Ive been dreaming about the good years
Ive been drinking to the good years
I'd like to thank you for the good years
The best years of our lives

Oh darling you remember (x3)
When everything was alright;Yeah!

Thats not me

Written By: Ross Nicholson

Thats Not Me (words and music:Ross Nicholson)

In a house where you live;in a house in a grid
there are people ,there are walls;but that's not me

In a life that you lead;In a life that you feed
there's a circus in your head,but that's not me

Im alone enough ,to be out of touch,with your dream

Do you pack ,do you pay,do you like the common way?
Do you think like you drink,or fade away..?

Are you searching for a way,to be happy everyday
Always chase ,what a waste,but that's not me

Im alone enough ,to be out of touch with your scene

..and the house with the fence ,is your best damm defense
Against those ,who have chose,to be free!

Mixed Up World

Written By: Ross Nicholson

Mixed up World (words and music:Ross Nicholson)


As you rise for work and put on a shirt a thought come’s through

What the hell we gonna do..

I feel so plastic so lock me in a cage,im running around naked

like ive got roadrage.

The power in the money ,the people in control,all that ive got is a little bit of soul

Oh can you help me to make things real ,I need some reaction not cold faces of steel !


Oh,we live in a Mixed up World,We live in a Mixed up World


I hang out at pub’s,I hang out at clubs,I hang out with people who like to do drugs

You’re so unhappy part of the machine,you’re acting like baby’s ,you know what I mean..?

The guy’s want sex,the girl’s want space,we live in a fucked up mixed up race

What we gonna do all you girl’s and boy’s;

to make some peace,we got to make some noise!!

We can defeat them!Give me some meaning..maybe im dreaming!

Let’s start leading,yeah!


The bullshit in the game,the worship in a name,lose all you're thinking on the stock exchange!The power in the real,the perfect ideal,just make up the way you really feel!

Oh,we live in a Mixed up World,We live in a Mixed up World..

Rescue Me

Written By: Ross Nicholson

I see you've lost your way
Your out on your own
You've never seen the sky
You've lost your urge to try
Please lead me with your smile

You float all away
You start new life today
You whisper and you play
Your soul is your disguise
I'll soon be by your side

Ch:Walking through,im feeling you
You lead the way ,im breaking through
A twist of light will blind my eye
well its o.k im feeling high
Im feeling high

I know you wait for me
So blinded let me see
Changing of this mind
Far from those that lie
Waiting for their time.

Ch2:Now im rising,without trying
Out of life,the're testing you
Those in living,souls forgiving
Come on through to rescue you
The're gonna rescue you.

Get it Together

Written By: Ross Nicholson

We gotta get together,gotta get together
We got to make things better,gonna shine forever

There's a time to have a dream,there's a time to dream a scene
There's a time for looking good,there's a time for Hollywood

The Cross Roads

Written By: Ross Nicholson

The Cross Roads

Choose what you want to believe..
In a World that is free in the wonderment of everything
We all try to be hard , we all try to be normal..
We are just trying to be perfect people

We’ve been in a daze for centuries now
We have found our place its not hard to see now , see now !

Chorus:
We’re at the Crossroads of history , we lead the charge of the calvery
We found the key and a way back home
We stand at the Cross Roads ,Crossroads!

Sing like you’ve never sung before
For its time to end all war , through the consiousness of everyone.
And we all try to love..We are one from the skies above ;
we are just trying to be perfect people

We’ve been in a daze for centuries now
We have found our place its not hard to see now , see now !

Chorus

Bridge:
For you and me..and now we see
From the mountains .., to the sea ..through the grassfeilds to the city
We are trying ! We are trying!

Chorus
