Music is like sex. Sometimes you like it hard, sometimes soft. My songs are a reflection of this quote. No genre is rejected. I am fantastic with people and have built a very loyal fan base. I love writing and performing and will do it no matter how big the stage, til the day i die. LoveLifePeace. X

Lyrics

Sleep

Written By: Max Fredericks


Sometimes I wake up early
When I’ve had a late late night
Sometimes I can sleep all day
Although you think I’m worldly
The answers not quite clear
What the hell I did all yesterday

Chorus
But you could sleep for hours without a peep
Yeah you could sleep forever
Anytime, any day, you’d sleep them all away
Maybe we should sleep together

Sometimes I wake
And I’m up and out of bed
Feed the kids and it’s already playtime
Kick the ball in the park
Then I start to lose my spark
40 winks and do it over again

Chorus

Lead break…
Chorus X 2
…for hours maybe weeks

Wonder Why

Written By: Max Fredericks

Wonder Why

Take a look around you
Are you paying for what you’ve done
Lock eyes with a stranger
And he thinks that he’s the one

The children always suffer in the end
I hope you’ve got the money son

Take a gun and kill the killers
You’re no better in the end
Labelled the American Caesar
And it reminds me now of then

The children always suffer in the end
You’re now a ghost I left behind
One armed boy is oh so innocent
One leg girl makes me cry

The children always suffer in the end
You’re now a ghost I left behind
One armed boy is oh so innocent
One leg girl makes me cry
A world at war just makes me shudder
No arms left would get me high
No child ever needs to suffer
We can only wonder why?
We can only wonder why?

Open Arms

Written By: Max Fredericks

Open Arms

Far away there I go, on another tangent
You never see, how could you tell, no indication
I’ll be back in a while for conversation
Another day I’ll go again

Realize I did you wrong, what’s so unusual
I’ll come again to see it right with hesitation
I’ll pen a line I’ll sing a tune, abandon all frustration
Another day I’ll see it through

My arms are open wide for you, for you
My arms are open wide for you, for you

I stare into the air for the thought of just finding a word
I know you’re there
I know you’re there
I know you’re there

Come a day we’ll be alone, there’s a cold sensation
When life has passed you will find no reservation
Close the door, turn the key, no limitations
I’m never far away…

Sanitized all your news eradication
Criticized from the pew manipulation
Fantasized about the news of fornication
Nothing left to say

My arms are open wide for you, for you
My arms are open wide for you, for you
My arms are open wide for you, for you
My arms are open wide for you, for you

Good Vibration

Written By: Max Fredericks

I love the way you look at me when I’m feeling low
I love the way you dance with me just to let me know
I love the way you sing out loud when you dance with me
Where the hell did you come from? Baby you’re the one for me

You give me such a good vibration
You give me such a sweet sensation
You give me such a big temptation
Woah, woah.

I love the way you look at me when you feel alright
I love the way you dance with me
Will you dance with me tonight?
I love the way you sing out loud when you dance with me
Where the hell did you come from? Baby you’re the one for me

Chorus
You give me such a good vibration
You give me such a sweet sensation
You give me such a big temptation
Woah, woah.
