Lyrics

Feel Free

Written By: Sachin Raj

Watch me float
See me fly
Fall like diamonds from the sky

Watch it burn
Flames will rise
Find shelter in my mind

In my mind
I feel free

Wash it off
Wash it clean
Down the drain
Into the sea

I have learned and I have tried
To find shelter in my mind

In my mind
I feel free

Into the sky

Brother

Written By: Sachin Raj

Even though I’m seven years older
You’re growing much faster than me
I know I troubled you when we were younger
I just wanted some attention you see

So how have you been doing
My brother
My brother

Even though you’re seven years younger
You’ve always been smarter than me
If we came from the same mother
Why do we act so differently?

So how have you been doing
My brother
My brother

Waiting for my Turn

Written By: Sachin Raj

Sometimes I just sit around
Looking at my picture
Hanging on the wall
Thinking of my mother
Wondering whether
It was my fault
Sometimes I just sit around
Listening to old records
Over and over

Time is trapped inside me
And I am just an orphan
Waiting for my turn

Preacher is on the stage now
Talking of salvation
And freedom for all souls
The rain falls in mixed meter
And I am in this weather
Shaking like a dog
Preacher is on the stage now
Says we are all outlaws on the wrong side of town
Time is trapped inside me
And I am just a driver waiting for my turn

Sometimes I just hang around
And then I start to wonder
How we appear
Living in this city where
People have no pity for
The pennies on the stairs
Sometimes I just hang around
Waiting for a conversation
To keep my warm
Time is trapped inside me
And I am just an orphan
Waiting for my turn
Waiting for my turn
Waiting for my turn

Change Your Ways

Written By: Sachin Raj

Ten years ago you were living on the top floor
Laughing at the people underneath
But now you’re broke and you got some rags for clothes
Begging for food on that same street

It’s so sad

You’re getting old but you don’t think so
You still got time to change your ways
And if you knew what you put me through
Would you have criticized me?

It’s just like you to come crawling back to me

You hang of the edge of my tangled up spider web
And you’re dangling from my violin string
I told you before that you’d probably end up poor
But you kept feeding yourself with your greed

It’s so sad

You’re getting old but you don’t think so
You still got time to change your ways
And if you knew what you put me through
Would you have criticized me?

It’s just like you to come crawling back to me

At the Station

Written By: Sachin Raj

At the station
The gods are waiting
Now they’re changing
Into demons

I don’t know why you won’t
Give my soul back to me

How I would like to believe
How I would like to

On your shoulders
She’s getting colder
Mamas dying
God is frightening

I don’t know why you would
Take her life from me

How I would like to believe
How I would like to believe
