AMERICAN DREAM

Written By: DR.V

AMERICAN DREAM

DEMOCRACY IS AN ILLUSION
POLITICS CREATE CONFUSION
BURN THE FLAG AND THE CONSTITUTION
EVERYBODY'S GUILTY
WE'RE ALL TO BLAME
WHERE'S THE AMERICAN DREAM
PROMISED ON TV
STARSTRUCK THOUGHTS IN YOUR EYES PEOPLE WAKE UP AND REALIZE
ALL THIS TIME
WE WERE BLIND THEY LIED TO US
ALL THIS TIME
WE WERE DRUNK AND WASTED
TIME IS RGHT FOR REVOLUTION
TIME FOR CHANGE AND EVOLUTION
NO GAMES AND NO ILLUSIONS
EVERYBODY'S GOTTA WANT THE SAME
WHERE'S THE AMERICAN DREAM SUCKED INT THE MACHINE GHOST GOT CAUGHT NOW THE WHEELS ON FIRE
GOVERNMENT IS ONE BI LIAR
ALL THIS TIME WE WERE RIGHT THAT THEY LIED TO US
ALL THIS TIME WE WERE
DRUNK AND WASTED
IT'S THE AMERICAN DREAM

60 X A DAY

Written By: DR.V

60 X A DAY

60 X A DAY
SHE CALLS TO TELL ME
THAT I’M THE ONE
THAT SHE WANTS TO MARRY
I DON’T REALLY CARE
AND I DON’T WANNA KNOW
SHE TELLS ME ANY WAY
AND THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES

ALL NIGHT SHE’LL TORTURE ME
MAKE ME HEAR THINGS I DON’T WANNA HEAR

SHE WANNA LOSE IT
COME ON LET’S DO IT
WE’LL HAVE A CELEBRATION

60 X A DAY
SHE CALLS TO TELL ME
WHO’S AT THE MALL
AND WHAT SHE’S WEARING
I DON’T REALLY CARE
AND I DON’T WANNA KNOW
BUT SHE TELLS ME ANY WAY
AND THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES

ALL NIGHT SHE’LL TORTURE ME
MAKE ME SEE THINGS I DON’T WANNA SEE

SHE WANNA LOSE IT
COME ON LET’S DO IT
WE’LL HAVE A CELEBRATION

LONDON...PARIS...NEW YORK…LA…
CHICAGO…TOKYO…HONG KONG…EVERYONE…
OUT THERE
LISTENING
THAT’T IT
JOIN HANDS
SING IT
DANCE IT
LIVE IT
LOVE IT

ALIVE

Written By: DR.V

ALIVE

I GOT A FEELING
I DON’T BELONG HERE
I LAY IN THE ALLEY
WHERE I GET HIGH

I GET A FEELING
I WON’T BE LONG HERE
I PRAY THE ALLEY
TAKES MY LIFE

IN A CITY FILLED WITH LIES
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES
TELL ME NO MORE LIES
I’VE DIED A MILLION TIMES

I CAN’T PRETEND
I CAN’T PRETEND
I CAN’T FORGET
I CAN’T FORGET

ARE YOUR ANGELS SINGING
EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
WE ALL NEED A REASON
TO FEEL ALIVE

PRAYERS IN THE DARK
NO ONE ANSWERS ANYMORE
I WANNA BE SAVED
I’M READY TO CHANGE
CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE

ARE YOUR ANGELS SINGING
EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
WE ALL NEED A REASON
TO FEEL ALIVE

ARE YOUR ANGELS SINGING
EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
WE ALL NEED A REASON
TO SEE THE LIGHT

SOLO
I WALK THE STREETS AT NIGHT
I GOT YOU ON MY MIND

ROSEHILL

Written By: DR.V

ROSEHILL

I HAVE COME HERE
LOOKING FOR YOU
WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
LONELY ONE
I HAVE COME HERE
TO PRAY FOR YOU
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
MY ONLY LOVE

ROSEHILL

I HAVE COME HERE
TO FORGIVE YOU
TELL YOU STORIES
AND KEEP YOU WARM
I HAVE COME HERE
TO LIE WITH YOU
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
MY ONLY LOVE

ROSEHILL

OH NO DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME
I’M HOLDING ON
TO MY BROKEN DREAMS
EVEN IF THEY HURT

DREAMS OF HOPE
HOPES OF FAME
SMOKING DOPE
TO KILL THE PAIN
OF THIS CRAZY WORLD

THERE SHE IS VELVET BLUE
PLAYING A SONG ON THE CELLO
IS SHE NOT AFRAID

ROSEHILL

END OF TIME

Written By: DR.V

UNTIL THE END OF TIME

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I WANT TO TELL YOU
BUT I CAN’T FIND THE WORDS RIGHT NOW
I’D RATHER BE LOST IN THE MOMENT
I WANT TO HOLD YOU ‘TIL THE SUN GOES DOWN

THE WAY THE MOONLIGHT REACHES ACROSS YOUR FACE
THE UNIVERSE SEEMS TO FALL IN PLACE
I THANK THE STARS AND THE LORD YOU’RE MINE
I WANT TO HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME
I WANT TO HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME

I WANNA TO HOLD YOU
I’M GONNA HOLD YOU
I WANNA TO HOLD YOU
I’M GONNA HOLD YOU

THERE ARE SO MANY LIES I COULD TELL YOU
PUT YOUR HAND ON MY HEART RIGHT NOW
AND DON’T BE AFRAID OF THIS MOMENT
A LITTLE FAITH WILL GET US THROUGH SOMEHOW

WHEN THE MORNING REACHES THE LIGHT OF DAY
YOU WHISPER WORDS ONLY ANGELS SING
I THANK THE SUN AND THE LORD YOU’RE MINE
I WANT TO HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME
I WANT TO HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME

I WANNA TO HOLD YOU
I’M GONNA HOLD YOU
I WANNA TO HOLD YOU
I’M GONNA HOLD YOU

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU
TAKE A LIFETIME TO FIND OUT
AS LONG AS WE HAVE EACH OTHER
I GONNA HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME
I GONNA HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME

VELVET RAIN

Written By: DR.V

VELVET RAIN

THERE SHE GOES
DOWN THE ROAD
GONNA CRY ME A RIVER
WHERE’S SHE’S GOING
I DON’T KNOW
SHE’S GOTTA FOLLOW HER DREAMS
I PRETEND AND ACT AS IF
I DON’T SEE HER
HIDING HIGH BEHIND A SMILE
A SMILE THAT’S FAKE

VELVET RAIN ON MY HANDS AND FACE

THERE SHE GOES
DOWN THE ROAD
GONNA CRY ME A RIVER
THERE SHE GOES
I DON’T KNOW WHEN
I WILL SEE HER AGAIN

THERE SHE GOES
DOWN THE ROAD
GROWING UP INTO A WOMAN
SHE’S EVERYTHING
I WANT HER TO BE
SHE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT THE DAY
WHEN SHE WOULD LEAVE ME
NOW I KNOW
SHE’S GOTTA FOLLOW HER DREAMS

VELVET RAIN ON MY HANDS AND FACE

THERE SHE GOES
DOWN THE ROAD
GONNA CRY ME A RIVER
THERE SHE GOES
I DON’T KNOW WHEN
I WILL SEE HER AGAIN

THERE SHE GOES
DOWN THE ROAD
VELVET RAIN ON MY HANDS AND FACE

SIRENS

Written By: DR.V

SIRENS

I HEAR THEM COMING
OVER THE MOUNTAIN
I SEE THEM COMING
OVERHILL

I HEAR THEM COMING
OVER THE MOUNTAIN
I SEE THEM COMING
OVERHILL

ONE BY ONE
HERE THEY COMES
IRENS CRY
IN THE NIGHT

PEACE PEACE PLEASE
I’M NOT BUYING IT
STOP SELLING ME LIES TO JUSTIFY
DROPPING BOMBS ON
INNOCENT PEOPLE (HIROSHIMA)

WHY CAN’T U.N. FORCES GO HOME
AND LEAVE US ALONE
I SAID GO HOME
GO HOME

ONE BY ONE
HERE THEY COMES
IRENS CRY
IN THE NIGHT

DO YOU FEEL LIKE KILLING IT
CONSIDER THE WORLD WE LIVE IN
BLACK AND WHITE SEEMED SO SIMPLE
I CAN’T FEEL THE LOVE
YOU GOTTA CHOOSE THEIR TRUTH
IF YOU DON’T, YOU LOSE
WE KNOW
WE KNOW

COMING HOME

Written By: Dr.V

HOW MY HEART SO HURTS
WHEN YOU'RE FAR AWAY
EVERYTHING SEEMS LOST
WILL I EVER SEE YOU AGAIN

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
FOR A HEARTACHE TO GO AWAY
ALL NIGHT LONG DAYS GO ON
I TRY SO HARD BUT I WANT YOU

EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY
ALL I DO IS PRAY FOR YOU

SITTING BY MYSELF
WAITING FOR YOU TO CALL
ALL YOUR PICTURES FROM BEFORE
ARE STILL UP ON MY WALL

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE
FOR THIS HEARTACHE GOES AWAY FOR ME
NOTHING MATTERS ANYMORE

EVERY SECOND I'M AWAKE
ALL I DO IS PRAY FOR YOU

I WANNA BE WITH YOU AGAIN
I WANNA KNOW IF YOU'RE COMING HOME TONIGHT

BORN

Written By: Dr.V

HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL
I'M GETTING TIRED OF GROWING OLD
AM I SUPPOSED TO BE THIS SAD
ALWAYS LIVING IN THE PAST

TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS BORN

HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL
I'M AFRAID I CAN'T LET GO
I BLAME MYSELF IT'S NOT MY FAULT
FOR EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG

TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS BORN

TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS...

MAYBE I'LL NEVER KNOW
WHY I'M HERE AND WHERE I'M FROM
I'LL FIND WHO WE ARE
UNDER THE STARS
MAYBE I'LL NEVER KNOW
WHY I'M HERE AND WHERE I'M GOING
I'LL FIND WHO WE ARE
UNDER THE STARS

HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL
I'M NOT AFRAID ANYMORE
TIME WILL NEVER LET YOU WIN
SAVE A PRAYER FOR MY SINS

TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS BORN
TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS BORN

TODAY

MILES AWAY

Written By: Dr.V

YOU MAKE ME ANXIOUS
EVERYTIME YOU COME AROUND
I CAN'T FIGURE OUT
IF YOU'RE UP OR DOWN
IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN WHAT I'M FEELING
IT'S HARD TO SAY WHAT'S ON MY MIND
I'VE TRIED EVERYWAY
BUT I CAN'T ESCAPE
GIRL, I STILL MISS YOU

I CAN'T FORGET YOU
LEAVE YOU LYING THERE
ALL BY YOURSELF
I'M NOT GONNA PLAY
INTO YOUR GAME

I MADE THAT MISTAKE BEFORE
I WON'T DO IT AGAIN

YOU SAID YOU'D BE THERE
WHEN I NEED YOU
YOU SAID YOU'D BE THERE
BUT YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
YOU SAID YOU'D BE THERE
WHEN I NEED YOU
GIRL, WHEN I NEEDED YOU
YOU WERE MILES AWAY

YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
I CAN'T HEAR YOU BABY
YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
I CAN'T HEAR YOU DARLING
YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
I CAN'T HEAR YOU MAMA
I CAN HEAR YOU
TELL ME

CRASH

Written By: Dr.V

MY MOTHER TOLD ME
FALLING STARS WE'RE REALLY ANGELS
WHO'D COME DOWN TO EARTH TO FIND THEIR ONE AND ONLY TRUE LOVE

HERE WE ARE JUST THE TWO OF US
I DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT YOU
BUT I'M GONNA MAKE YOU MINE
MAYBE WE'LL NEVER LEARN

IF WE DON'T SLOW DOWN
WE'RE GONNA CRASH
SOONER OR LATER
IF WE DON'T SLOW DOWN
WE'RE GONNA SMASH
INTO EACH OTHER
DESTINED TO BE AS ONE

SHOOTING STARS
THAT BURN SO BRIGHT
BURN OUT TOO FAST
BEFORE THEIR TIME
LIKE THE STARS
WE'LL GO UP IN FLAMES
LET US BURN
BURN

WE TRIED
WE CAN'T
WE COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT
WE TRIED
WE CAN'T
WE CAN'T MAKE IT RIGHT
WE TRIED

AND IF YOU
ONLY YOU

NO
DON'T
LET IT END THIS WAY
WAIT
IS IT TOO LATE
TO SAVE US FROM THE END
NO
DON'T
LET IT END THIS WAY
WAIT
SAVE US FROM THE END
