Lyrics

Save your soul

Written By: Angelos Kyprianos

He woke up and wore
His heavy uniform
Son put that gun away
But he doesn’t plan to obey

Cause his mind’s made up
He was trained for that
And that’s the only thing he’ll say

But he is blind you see
From this hatred filled
And now his world is gone astray

Son save your soul
Son save your soul
You ve been wrong for so long

I once had heard her say
My life is not the one i used to dream of
And all i do is pray
But it doesn’t work from where i come from

And i prayed for change
Beyond my range
But i dont feel it anymore

But my soul is safe
Cause i work all day
And i bring my money home

Son save your soul
Son save your soul
You ve been wrong for so long

There is nothing i desire
But i am still dreaming
And the few things i admire
Dont have that much meaning
Not a thing touches my soul

One thing i must fight
To keep myself from dreaming
Few things i desire
But i wake up screaming
Not a thing touches my soul
None...

She left when morning came
Cause she couldn’t place the blame
His dreams became a wall
And for her it’s just too tall

In my new sweet home
Just outside of Rome
He brings me flowers every day

And my life feels right
We go out at night
And he always wants to pay

Son save your soul
Son save your soul
You’ve been wrong for so long

The gospel of the road

Written By: Angelos Kyprianos

She was bleeding on the road
When i saw her
She was lying on the floor
So helpless
When she screamed
What about me

Doctor hurry up
Somebody save this
Woman and the child
Find a way and
Let them breathe
Let them breathe
Let them breathe

Everyone has seen her sleeping in the rain
On the floor
And everyday we are just staring at the wall
Everynight we see her begging on the road
In the cold
And everyday we are just feeling 10 feet tall
Save my soul

You bring the camera
This story is mine

They were gathering like crows
When they noticed
She was giving birth alone
And believe me
Everyone was there
Just like me
By her side

But the moment would expire
And the people
Fulfilling their desire
Took the trip home
And let her to
her same old life
On the street

Everyone has seen her sleeping in the rain
On the floor
And everyday we are just staring at the wall
Everynight we see her begging on the road
In the cold
And everyday we are just feeling 10 feet tall

One last chance

Written By: Angelos Kyprianos

Fair lady, come follow me.
You have been, all you could be.
It’s not the place for you to be.
It’s over now, you’ll come with me.
And you, like every other, will go down
Below and under. Stop begging please
Your time is over, step on my boat, we’ll
Cross the border. You ruin your life, your soul,
Your flesh, forever, come with me, follow me,
Into the darkness. He smiled at her, with a crooked
Smile, no warmth in his eyes. There’s a chance you can
Dance, let’s move around, i’ll talk you through, your feet must move.
If you can keep it up, you’ll see the dawn, but if you stop, i’ll do my part
Till death do us part.

In stone

Written By: Angelos Kyprianos

I want you to promise
Our love is strong
I want you to sign a contract
I want you to write in stone

I want you to notice
I've never been wrong
I want you to sign a contract
I want you to write in stone

and shape your world around it
And tell my friends about it

right now

sitting here in the house of pain
the silence here will drive me insane
i need you
won't you come back home
i cant spend the night alone

ive been heartbroken for a day
i said some things i had to say
i need you

i wanna come back home
i dont do well on my own

sitting here in the house of pain
the silence here will drive me insane
i need you
won't you come back home
i cant spend the night alone

ive been heartbroken for a day
i said some things i had to say
i need you

i wanna come back home
i dont do well on my own
I dont do well on my own
