Lyrics

Making Peace...

Written By: Fox Salehi

MAKING PEACE (Fox Salehi)

Father said I was foolish,
And Mum says I'm selfish,
So I crossed the ocean one teenage night.
There were years I said nothing,
I wish I'd said something,
I wasted my time, we only have one life...

If I could change one thing, I'd want all that time back,
The years slip by in no time at all,
If I wait for your first move, and you wait for mine too,
What if we don't move at all?

Don't wait for a reason, we don't need a reason,
It only takes one of us to stop the fight,
This will be over if I do, over if you do,
Over if we both stop tonight.

On the day that they marched in here,
You swore through your fear,
That you'd never surrender your pain,
So you're killing their children,
And they're killing your children,
And we both lose the ones that we love in vain...

What if there is no answer, if there's no conclusion,
If there is no justice at the end of the war?
If we meet in the middle, we must move to the middle,
We must let go of what we're fighting for...

Don't wait for a reason, we don't need a reason,
It only takes one of us to stop the fight,
This will be over if I do, over if you do,
Over if we both stop tonight

You're scared they wanna hurt you,
They're scared you wanna hurt them too...
Neither one of you's right,
Neither one of you’s wrong,
Neither one of you’s evil...

It will never make sense to attack in self defense...

Don't wait for a reason, we don't need a reason,
It only takes one of us to stop the fight,
This will be over if I do, over if you do,
Over if we both stop tonight x2

(Don't wait for a reason, we don't need a reason
It only takes one of us, this war could be over...)

And you can feel if you want to...
You can feel if you want to now
You can feel if you want to,
You can feel if you want to...
Don't be afraid to feel.

Song For The Terrorists...

Written By: Fox Salehi

SONG FOR THE TERRORISTS (Fox Salehi)

They are on the rise,
Everywhere you see them…
Cowards all should die,
For what they believe in…
Believe it…
Be all you can be…
So blind…
So wrong…
Close your mind…

Your flag is in your eyes,
Stars are all you’re seeing…
God is on your side,
And that’s what you believe in…
You can be the best…
And bleeding is believing…

Your friends are all dying,
Your enemies crying,
Their babies are dead in their arms,
While your family

Need you back home, before your soul turns to stone…
You fight for their reasons but meanwhile you’re tearing their
Nations apart, before there’s cold in your heart,
Wake up and see that our freedom does not cost your soul

Hate is in your eyes,
They’re ready to deploy you…
When you believe the lies,
That they want to destroy you…
It’s all true,
Unless you can see through, and see truth,
They’re using you…
Your wife and your children you promised you’d love forever need you,
Your country doesn’t need you,
The ones who love you

Need you back home, before your soul turns to stone…
You’re fighting for treason and tearing their nations and
Freedom apart, before there’s cold in your heart…
See that our freedom does not cost your life and your soul…

This is a song for the terrorists
Who fight for our freedom
Won’t somebody tell them
We’re free and we don’t need them
A song for the government
Who told us we’re either
On god’s side or evil
Well I am with neither

We won’t fight for the MNCs,
We won’t fight for the VIPs,
We won’t die for their lies anymore…
We won’t fight for the President,
We won’t fight for the one percent,
We won’t fight, we won’t die anymore…
We won’t die no more.

Fantasy...

Written By: Fox Salehi/Brent Persia

FANTASY (Salehi/Persia)

When the sun goes down you start to think
About feeling my lips on every inch of your
Perfect body, my hot breath
Is slowly teasing you to death…
I slide between your curvy thighs
You dig in your nails and close your eyes
I want to take you straight to heaven
And cover you like water in a rainstorm…

You tell me all the other boys have said the same
When I said I’d make you scream my name
But now you know that I make the rain
And you’re coming just for me…
I know that other boys’ll break your heart
But every time you want me I will come
And take you break you I can wash away your pain
Like water in a rainstorm…

Every time I see you I can only think of one thing…
Me on you…
Oh so many things to show you now…
I don’t need you to share your soul
I don’t want to have control of your life…
Just let me touch you like I need to
Let me be your fantasy…
Let me be your fantasy…

I’m gonna make it so you can’t sleep
Unless you’re on me, covered in our
Sweat
And with our heartbeats coming down
The sooner that you come around
The sooner we can start
I told you I don’t need your heart
These things you thought you’d never feel
Shhhhhh

Just wait till after and you’ll understand
I hold your pleasure in my hand
I’ll do things you don’t even know the names for
Loving you could die for…
If you want it now
Just spread your legs I’ll show you how
You’re worried that you’ll fall in love with me…
Shhhhhh… wait till after…

Every time I see you I can only think of one thing…
Me on you.
Oh so many things to show you now
I can be your fantasy
I don’t need you to share your soul
I don’t want to have control of your life
Just let me touch you like I need to…
Let me be your fantasy…
Let me be your fantasy…
Let me be your fantasy…
Let me be your fantasy.

Dominoes...

Written By: Fox Salehi/Brent Persia

DOMINOES

Met somebody yesterday, said he's never even left the state…
Don't need to see the world, he said, cause I already know it's all the same…
They all hate us everywhere, I know because I trust my TV screen…
And I can't afford to go nowhere, still got to pay off my S.U.V…

The nations will fall down like dominoes
Unless we give all our leaders the power to take theirs away
These people will die to destroy you, they hate all you are
They are evil, they don't love like we do

And if you believe all these things then you know that you're doing the right thing
And if you believe all these things then you know that we're doing the right thing
But I don't believe,
I don't believe,
I don’t believe the lies.

The UN wants to criticize, they’re jealous of our freedom and our wealth… (but not our mental health…)
And don’t feel bad for New Orleans, we can’t help them if they can’t help themselves…
If you take back the atomic bomb, then we would all be speaking Japanese…
Don’t be PC bout HIV, don’t be afraid to say it’s a black and gay disease…

Those nations will fall down like dominoes
But we would rather surrender our rights and our free will
The clashing of civilizations is here
And the only way we can survive is to kill or be killed

And if you believe all these things then you know that you're doing the right thing
And if you believe all these things then you know that we're doing the right thing
But I don't believe, I don’t believe,
I don't believe, I don’t believe,
I don’t believe, I don’t believe,
I don’t believe…
Don’t believe the lies.

Blameless... (Now We Rule The World...)

Written By: Fox Salehi...

18. BLAMELESS... (NOW WE RULE THE WORLD...) (Salehi)

Blameless,
In our sameness…
Medication
Makes it painless…
Doctor sold me
Antibiotics…
If you’re with us,
You’re patriotic…

Live our lives for those who died for freedom…
Tell ourselves the reasons why we need them…
Morning pledge allegiance in the classroom…
Drop our bombs and pray that war will pass soon…
And soon…
We will rule the world…

Censors
Protect the children…
Tell the parents
What to feed them…
Tell the teachers
What to teach them…
So contradiction
Will not reach them…

Play the game, distraction, misdirections…
Demonize and don’t answer the questions…
Silence in the name of national safety…
Always must indoctrinate our babies…
We planned it all along…
Now we rule the world…

Smile now…
Let our teeth show…
Let our flag wave…
Let the wind blow…
Keep on winning…
Keep our hands clean…
Don’t feel guilty…
We’re on god’s team…

All our lies designed to false alarm you…
If you leave these shores they’re sure to harm you…
No-one knows the truth, we like it that way…
No-one contradicts the things that we say…
Don’t bother trying to expose the truth…
Cause we control the world…
Cause we control the world.

Living In Luxury...

Written By: Fox Salehi/Brent Persia...

29. LIVING IN LUXURY... (Salehi/Persia)

Babylon is mine, Kuwaiti disguise
Afghanistan, Iran, Korea, Vietnam
Bangui C.A.R., Et Le Cote D’Ivoire
If there’s money in your soil we don’t care who you are

We have to see them, before we make up our minds about their homelands,
Before we bleed them, take what we need to keep living in luxury

Burkina Faso child, Tanzania smile, Kigali Rwanda,
Angola Luanda, Mexico, Congo, Sudan,
Somalia, Uganda, Syria, China, India, Tibet
Dubai, Israel Brunei, Lebanon Liberia, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Abu Dhabi Saudi Arabia

We have to see them, before we make up our minds about them,
Before we bleed them, dismiss them as faraway places
They’re just like you, they’re just like me
Except that they never feel the need to use you
To live in luxury,
To live in luxury, to live free
To be happy, to be free

If It Wasn't For You...

Written By: Fox Salehi

10. IF IT WASN'T FOR YOU... (Salehi/Persia)

I just saw you yesterday,
For the first time in awhile,
When I'm away I don't feel anything…
You changed my life,
And you opened up my eyes,
Do you have any idea what you've done?

I was dying when I met you,
You brought me back to life...

But see through the pain...
See what you mean,
What you mean to me,
It's all in my eyes,
Please just believe in me,
I can feel your heat beside me,
As you sleep, my love,
You'll never know how much I need you,
There are still demons in my head,
I'm trying to let them go forever...
They would've killed me by now...
If it wasn't for your love,
If it wasn't for you love...

I don't know where I would be,
If you'd never found me, love,
All I know’s I’d never have done all this without you…
Every memory that I own,
Is every memory that we made,
I used to be so afraid of the time to come…

But I don’t care anymore where it leads,
Because you’ll be there…

You waited for me…
I’ll wait for as long for as long it takes,
For you to be mine…
I’m there in the night,
You’ll never be alone again,
I’m telling you now…
Do you realize,
Each time you see me cry,
It’s just the last few tears inside,
There are still demons in my head,
I’m trying to let them go forever…
They would’ve killed me by now…
If it wasn’t for your love…
If it wasn’t for your love, yeah…
If it wasn’t for you love…

I just saw you yesterday for the first time in awhile…
When I’m away I don’t feel anything.

Feel Me On The Wind...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

14. FEEL ME ON THE WIND... (Salehi/Persia)

Somewhere down south, I remember...
Final moments in New York with you...
Carolina, or Atlanta Hartsfield memories...
I wish I could remember how it feels...

The falling years they change us all
In ways we can’t imagine...
And we never knew how precious were the days...
And the nights my love…
In the Alabama winds…

Do you feel me on the wind,
In the tornado grey skies...
Do you feel me like you did,
Even after all this time...
Do you feel me on the wind,
In the Tuscaloosa night...
Do you feel me on the wind...

Forest Hills, I remember...
And that Shakespeare Center afternoon...
Sweetened iced tea and you fell asleep while at the wheel...
And your love for New Orleans...

I never had the chance to see
Your eyes shine on Bourbon Street...
The birthday on Fort Walton Beach,
The cloudy skies...
I’m trying to forgive myself
For that night at Lek’s Railroad Thai...
I wonder if you knew you were the first one...
I was full of lies…
But there were many truths inside…

Do you feel me on the wind,
In the warm Montgomery night...
Can you find a way to live,
After such a love has died...
Do you feel me on the wind,
When the black clouds open wide...
Do you feel me on the wind...

Believe...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

15. BELIEVE... (Fox Salehi)

When I was young I thought there was something to live for,
Then as time went by I lost my faith in life,
But kept on looking anyway…
I found religion, lies,
And circumstances made me cry,
And I started to wonder why…
I never knew, I never realized…

The way we live our lives is so strange these days…
I never thought that I could feel this way…
I no longer believed that someone felt the same as me…
The same as me…

But here you are...
Can't believe my eyes...
In a moment you justify all the nights I cried...
When I was a child...
You were in my mind, you were in my dreams…
Now you're standing in front of me…
And I believe...
I believe...

There was a time when love and kindness were alive,
But now here's violence on the streets,
And children with no food to eat…
I was preoccupied,
I kept my feelings locked inside,
I couldn't change the world
Until I found something I knew that I would never ever find…

I couldn't be myself without knowing why
So many died for the right to live their lives,
If faith, honour, freedom, religion and love were all lies…
But they‘re not all lies…

‘Cause here you are...
Can't believe my eyes...
In a moment you justify all the nights I cried...
All the nights that I cried…
When I was a child, oh yeah...
You were in my mind, you were in my dreams…
Now you're standing in front of me,
And I believe...
And I believe...
I believe…

All of the years that I waited for you…
All of the tears that I cried thinking you’d never know…
I always believed in you…
I knew you were real and I never stopped looking for you…

My life...
It's in your hands...
I’m surrendered to what you give me…
Alone…
Nothing seems real…
I know no justice when you're not with me...
I feel you all the time...
Every night...
I feel you...
I need you every night...
Oh you don't know how much I need you...
Your arms are the place I call home...

Here you are...
Can't believe my eyes...
In a moment you justify all the nights I cried…
All the nights that I cried when I was a child...
When I was a child...
You were in my mind, you were in my dreams…
Now you're standing in front of me…
And I believe... I believe... I believe…
I believe………..

But Only In Dreams...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

16. BUT ONLY IN DREAMS... (Salehi)

You called me up the other night,
I told you I would never be in love with you…
You said that I might change my mind,
Then you cried all night from what I put you through…
You'll fall in love and then you'll change,
And never will you understand just what you feel…
Now you're confused and lost again,
And I'm just left here wondering if love is real…

Just make the world go away,
And all my fears will fade away inside of you,
I’ll feel the things you want me to…
In dreams you can have your way,
That is the only place where everything’ll be
Exactly what you want it to,
I’ll be the one who comforts you…
Believe…
There’s no reason to believe…

You called me and you cried to me,
And told me that you’re never gonna love again…
You wanted me to hold your hand,
And walk with you on foreign beaches in the rain…
And show you all the world as it existed in my head
Since I was very small…
My careless hands that pick you up and let you go
And never catch you when you fall…

Just make the world go away,
And I can finally be the things you see in me,
The lover you wanted me to be…
Believe you can have your way,
And will never find another boy
Who’s capable of loving you
The way I know I could love you,
But only in dreams…

I never thought I’d find somebody like you…
I never thought I’d lose someone like you…
Someone like you…

You tell me you're in love with me,
And no-one else has loved me in the way you do…
But even if I wanted to,
I know I will never feel the same as you…
I know that you’d be good for me,
I know that I’d be good for you if we were free…
I know I’m going to break your heart and soul in two,
But there’s no other choice for me…

Just make my love go away,
And maybe then my heart would just belong to you…
Then I could make your dreams come true…
But I can’t make them go away,
And even if I could I never would…
This love,
That filled my soul,
And soothed away all my mortal fears…
And has never faded away,
After all these years…

I never thought I’d find somebody like you…
I never thought I’d lose someone like you…
I never thought I’d find somebody like you…

Eastern Seaboard...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

18. EASTERN SEABOARD (Salehi/Persia)

At dawn,
The sun was coming up on the east side,
I was on the inside of the glass…
At once,
I had this funny feeling inside,
No creature so fragile
Should fly so fast…

All across the Eastern Seaboard,
You could see the twinkling lights,
From other transatlantic flights…
The suburbs of the Western Empire,
After another cold East Coast night,
At first light…

Fly round the world,
Move ‘cross the ocean at speeds so obscene,
There's so much to the world,
To challenge the things you believe…
Travelling cross the land,
Silent cities pass you by,
And you will realize,
We're all the same,
And all so strange,
Nobody hates you,
There's no-one left to hate…
Every nation, every land,
Will help you understand,
It will change you forever,
And will stay with you forever…

I've seen the beauty of Galicia,
Found heaven in Venezia,
My San Marco dream…
And I’ve been lost in the heart of Africa,
3rd Street in Santa Monica,
And everything between…
And I've wasted years of tears and laughter,
Saying I'll travel after,
When I'm free…
And I’m fine,
I don’t mind,
As long as I can…

Fly round the world,
Soaring 'cross the ocean at light speed…
There's so much to the world,
To challenge the lies we believe…
As you travel, arbitrary lines and borders pass you by,
And you will realize…
We're all the same,
And all so strange…
Nobody hates you,
There's no-one left to hate…
Every nation, every land,
Will help you understand,
It will change you forever,
And will stay with you forever…
Stay with you forever…

At dawn,
The sun was coming up on the east side…
I was on the inside of the glass…

Empty Oceans...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

8. EMPTY OCEANS... (Fox Salehi)

The sky is blue today,
The world is silent now...
I wish you could see me now...
I wake in the mornings
And all I feel is nothing...
There's nothing to feel anymore...

Our lives were entwined...
You said don't be afraid, my love...
Now there's nothing left to fear...

Empty oceans will remain,
But in time our hearts will change,
And what seemed real long ago,
Will slip away as time unfolds...
Empty hearts and broken dreams,
Empty oceans all I see...
In the stormy seas I lost you,
Now there's nothing left for me...
Where are you now?

The wind hurts my face,
Sweeps across the space between us,
And there's nothing here...
Do you love someone else?
That's all I need to know...
There's nothing to feel anymore...

All the dreams that we shared...
(They are nothing but a memory...)
All our sacred memories broken...
(On the bottom of the ocean floor...)
And the future's gone away...
(I will feel no more...)

Empty oceans will remain,
But in time our hearts will change,
And what seemed real long ago,
Will slip away as time unfolds...
Empty hearts and broken dreams,
Empty oceans all I see...
In the stormy seas I lost you,
Now there's nothing left for me...
Where are you now?

The sky is blue today...
The world is silent now...
I wish you could see me now...

Changing History...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

1. CHANGING HISTORY... (Salehi)

In the 1980s you were terrified...
In the 90s you were broken by the life and times
and dreams you were denied,
As the years went by...
There are many men with blood upon their hands,
Women who have been where you have been,
But it has tortured me inside,
That it was you who cried...

It tears me open, tell me why,
Through those years that passed us by,
You needed me,
You needed me to steal your heart,
Before I had the chance,
Before I was old enough...
The way it goes is often strange,
Please, I need a way to change,
The circumstance that led you to your misery,
There was nothing I could do,
Is there nothing,
Is there nothing I can do...

Stories that you've told me make me cold inside...
To think of all they put you through,
I never understood why no-one saw in you,
All I've seen in you...
I still cry when I see those old photographs...
I want to go back in time,
And change your mind,
And change what life has put you through,
No-one deserves that life,
Least of all you...
The most beautiful soul I ever knew...
I wanna change your history...
I wanna change your history...

He made you bleed because he wanted to,
You needed me to rescue you,
You needed me,
But I was young and far away...
You were so afraid...
So the years went by and wasted...
With you every time you cried,
With you when you closed your eyes,
I needed you,
But never like you needed me,
But I wasn't there...
It drives me crazy...
Each day of my life...
Why wasn’t I there for you?
Why wasn’t I there for you?
Oh why...
Oh why...

Way Back Home...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

2. WAY BACK HOME... (Salehi/Persia)

Many years ago,
I ran away from what I hated most…
My demons and my ghosts…
Now they are gone.
These are the places that I knew,
On these streets I used to wander…
Unfamiliar faces
Are all I see around me now…

And even so,
I feel so alone,
I can't remember
Who I was before…

Show me the way back home,
Now that I can't recall
The path that I fled along
A long time ago…
But there is no way back home,
Oh, and I'll never know…
No, you can never go,
Never go home…

This was the house I dreamed in…
This was the school that I was locked inside…
This was where I would hide,
From all my pain…
And if I close my eyes I hear
All the voices of the friends I knew…
They're all long gone by now…

So I realize
That I don't know
If I'll see them again…
The streets that we walked on
Are empty and cold...

Show me the way back home,
Now that I can't recall
The path that I fled along
A long time ago…
But there is no way back home,
No, and I'll never know…
Oh, you can never go,
Never go home…

I'll never see home again…
I wonder now what I saw then,
And as time goes by,
I start to doubt my memory…
All those fading years…
Under the bridge
Has passed an ocean…
With every passing day,
My memories fade…

Show me the way back home,
Now that I can't recall
The path that I fled along
A long time ago…
But there is no way back home,
No, and I'll never know…
Oh, you can never go,
Never go home…

Show me the way…
Show me the way…
Show me the way…
Never go home…
Never will go home…
Show me the way…
Never will go home…
You never will go home…

Something In Your Eyes...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

3. SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES... (Salehi)

When I walked into the room,
You were looking strange…
You once waited, baited breath,
Now there is a change…
Once I brought your world to life,
Set your heart on fire…
Now something has quashed the flames,
Dampened your desire…

I wanna know, I need to know,
Where did all the passion go?
Tell me baby, I am so afraid now…

Something in your eyes is telling me that I am losing you…
When I ask you why you cry and tell me I'm confusing you…
I can tell there's something hurting you, but what you will not say…
I don't wanna live without you but I can't go on this way…

Tell me that I'm paranoid,
And I will tell you why…
I can't live without your love,
And I don't wanna try…
Since the day I met you,
I have finally felt alive…
And if I lost you now,
I'm worried I would not survive…

I want to know, I need to know,
Where did all the passion go?
Tell me baby, I am so afraid now…

Something in your eyes is telling me that I am losing you…
When I ask you why you cry and tell me I'm confusing you…
I can see there's something hurting you but what you will not say…
I don't wanna live without you but I can't go on this way…

So much time has passed us by,
That sometimes I'm not sure…
If I trust our memories
Of this perfect love before…
It seems like we're so far apart,
It's breaking my heart…
I still remember how good it was…
Am I losing your love?

Something in your eyes is telling me that I am losing you…
When I ask you why you cry and tell me I'm confusing you…
I can tell there's something hurting you but what you will not say…
I don't wanna live without you but I can't go on this way…
I don't wanna live without you but I can't go on this way.

The Only Way...

Written By: Fox Salehi and Brent Persia...

6. THE ONLY WAY... (Persia/Salehi)

Should your babies ask you why
There's so much violence in this life
And should you not know what to say
(I don’t know what I can say…)

We've never known another way, my son,
Why the hate in our hearts, my son,
Why we're falling apart,
I don't know the answers but I know,
It's the only way we know, my son,
I don't know the answers, but I know,
It's the only way we’ve ever known…

Tell your children when they cry
To shed no tears for those who die,
For its always been this way…
Love will never rule the world
With different rules for boys and girls
And black and white and rich and poor…

As our descent now nears its end,
Should we pretend or should we pray, my son,
To reverse our mistakes, my son,
How much more till it breaks…

I don't know the answers, but I know,
It's the only way we‘ve know, my son,
I don't know the answers, but I know,
It's the only way we’ve ever known…
(How much more till we break,
How much more till I break down,
How much more till I break down…)

It's the only way, it's the only way…
I don't know the answers, but I know,
It's the only way we’ve ever known…

Nightmares...

Written By: Fox Salehi...

29. NIGHTMARES... (Salehi/Persia)

When you find that time is going somewhere,
Faster than you are,
Faster than you are...
And when you don't know where you're going,
But you know where you are,
You know where you are...
Dreams have lost you like they found you,
They speak to you in silence,
They come to you at night...
Limitations all around you,
We all know the problem,
You never seem to wake up in your dreams...

Only dreams will let you live your life,
Only dreams will fulfill what’s inside,
Haunted by your nightmares all the time,
When you wake up will you tell yourself it’s alright?

Chorus
Am I dreaming? Am I dreaming? Am I dreaming all the time? x2

In your darkest nightmares where'd you go?
Do you learn what you don't wanna know?
Is that the only place where you face all your fears, now?
All your expectations fall apart,
All your big plans they never start,
'Til the day you wake up wondering where'd the time go?
Oh yeah...

Repeat First Verse and Chorus

See the desperation in your eyes,
Tell the hopeful young ones they are blind,
Did you really think that all your dreams would come true?
By the time you know what life's about,
You will feel your time is running out,
Did you really think that it would all come to you?

Did you fall along the way?
Did you stall along the way?
Did you ever get things started?
Did you ever leave your hometown?
Did you do the things you wanted?
Did you get it? Did you flaunt it?
Did you live for the moment?
Did you work your life away or did you own it?
Did you control it?
Did you enjoy your time?
And are you ready… Are you ready now to die?
Are you ready now to die?
Are you ready now to die... yeah?
