Lyrics

Need To Know

Written By: J.N.R.

so tell us woman what have you done • what is this moment that you want us to never forgive you of
what is this light deep in the sky • breathing from the lion that was bitten by the jungle fire

so tell us something we need to know
tell us something are we ready to go
tell us something we need to hear
tell us something just make it clear

so tell us woman what’s this light in your eye • it’s mean and it’s spinning like a tornado that don’t want to die
so tell us something we need to know

tell us something are we ready to go
tell us something we need to hear
tell us something just make it clear

on this ride tonight you need to let it flow • in this open space you will find what you left at home

so tell us something we need to know
tell us something are we ready to go
tell us something we need to hear
tell us something just make it clear

Stranded Street

Written By: J.N.R.

well you’re wandering on a stranded street again, everything’s a bit insane • afraid to stop and look around at what is real, all this darkness in your brain

this is what it’s like when you’re out of time and everything’s out of place • hell is just a madness, hell is all the madness, hell is just a madness that we create • seems so hard to realize

focus on the truth and seek out the dream the black can only fade away

but this is what it’s like when you’re out of time and everything’s out of place • hell is just a madness, hell is all the madness, hell is just the madness inside our head

are you stuck in a panic state • is it complete destruction or just a needed wake

this is what it’s like when you’re out of time and everything’s out of place • hell is just a madness, hell is all the madness, hell is just the madness, madness • hell is just the madness, trapped inside this madness, lying, lying, dying, oh go away

Slide

Written By: J.N.R.

well i’ve done some bad things and made some mistakes where i know i really wasn’t right • if i had a new way well i would never stay in that sort of state of mind
well i’ve been through the rain and I’ve seen better days but i really don’t need to explain • though we all have our way and our own things to say, in the end it’s going to be alright

if you had a new chance would you give up a slice of your time • if you had a new chance would you give a little more of your life • and in order to breathe you need to learn to let some things slide
it’s all we can do, we do what we do just to find our way • it’s all we can do, we do what we do just to find our way

oh i’ve done some bad things and made some mistakes where i know i really wasn’t right • if i had a new way well i would never stay in that sort of state of mind

if you had a new chance would you give up a slice of your time • if you had a new chance would you give a little more of your life • and in order to breathe you need to learn to let some things slide
