One Way Up
E.L



You’ve got to start in your heart, and let your mind fall apart a little while
Haters keep, lovers share. you know that you can do without the silverware

You’ve got to be kidding me, you told me A tell me B, what is C? Well?
And with a blink of an eye, we fought the truth, now we had to fight a lie

Badadodibididiudibidue….Yeah!

One way up
One way up
One way up

It’s nothing more than a scream, and nothing less than a dream, don’t you know
There is no time to reflect, and wonder is to neglect, don’t think once.

You never say what you mean, you never mean what you say anyway
The way the wind blows cold, the wind blows cold

Badadodibididiudibidue….Yeah!

One way up
One way up
One way up

By Steel
I.U.H



By your hand she used to walk, through her voice you used to talk
Her hair is light and yours is darkness

On the sand you used to run, away from shadows and into the sun
Your lives are light, your lives are darkness

Grab my branches, shake my tree, let me be a leaf as small and free

She kissed you by the kittens bay, where you laughed and where you played
The choice was made, the words were spoken

She had dreamed about this day, then you threw it all away
You were afraid, so afraid

Grab my branches, shake my tree, let me be a leaf, as small and free

Don’t Look Back
E.L



Wake up sleepyheads, surrender from your beds and serve another day in no man’s land

The war on idle kids, the doers and the “dids”, are waiting in line for another queue

The cold and lonely spring, the silence when you sing
You stood the company line and you never looked back.

If you can see the light behind my shadow
Then I will cover the tracks
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back.

A simple minded man, with hopes and dreams and plans, and nothing more than time, on his hands
How to make a choice, how to raise a voice, keep drownin’ in the noise, from speaking in tounges
Auctions for your soul, one-two-three you’re sold, the company that you hold isn’t yours to own

If you can see the light
Don’t look back, don’t look back
Behind my shadow
Don’t look back, don’t look back

If you can show me a man who is honest and kind, and I’ll show a man you can beat anytime
If you can show me a man who can stand on his hands, and I’ll show you a man who can fall on his feet

Don’t look back
If you can see the light behind my shadow
If you can see the light behind my shadow
If you can see the light behind my shadow



Undeniably
E.L


If you’re looking for an answer, better cast your eye on me
We’ll put your two and two together, do the math and you will see
There is no such thing as magic if you’ve done the trick a thousand times before
Watch me…

Dial one for doves in napkins
Dial two for travesty
Put your sorry heads together
Close your eyes and you will see
That your head is full of rabbits and your gullible belief belongs to me

Undeniably the greatest thing I’ll ever see
Undeniably the greatest thing you’ll ever see
Undeniability

If you’re going for election
Better cast your vote on me
I have mystical experience
Dare you read my resumé?
There is no such thing as power, while your gullible belief belongs to me
Undeniability
In denial

There is no such thing as power while your gullible belief belongs to me

You’ll pay me in astonishment
My wage is your concern
You’ll scratch another ticket
Until your minds return
Undeniably the greatest thing I’ll ever see
The greatest thing they’ll ever be is undeniablitiy
Undeniability, undeniably, there greatest thing they’ll ever be close your eyes and you will see

Undeniably the greatest thing I’ll ever see
Undeniably the greatest thing you’ll ever see
Undeniability

If you’re looking for an answer, better cast your eye on me
We’ll put your two and two together close your eyes and you will see

Scarification
I.U.H



In my city there’s an old forgotten railway, running across the land
Only as a simple reminder, like the line in the palm of my hand.

And the grass has grown over the railway, no one can see it anymore
The ground has found a way to recover, but time can never heal, only ignore.

Scarifications, drawing a line on my skinn,

Only a simple mistake, a game where you give and you take, you say that no one can win.

They say that I’m an adult now, I should have learned to leave it behind
But deep within I carry her sacrifice, she’s my soul and my body and my mind.

And the child walked away like a soldier, turned her back at all the stains, only with her ear tight to the ground, she can still hear the sound of the trains.

Scarifications, drawing a line on my skinn,

Only a simple mistake, a game where you give and you take, you say that no one can win.

Invisible Footprints
I.U.H



I travel the night, by an elevator moving sideways, afraid of the light that will shine right through my memory
I travel the night, step by step, invisible footprints.

I’m in a car, driving faster as I try to stop it
Driving too far, on a road leading to nowhere, the driver is gone, and the radio has turned into silence

Let me wake up slowly, give me another try, to read the signs around me,
My mind is a book, I can not read between the lines

I travel the skies, by a plane where all the seats are empty
And I realize there is no point of direction, I travel the skies
Will you trace my invisible footprints?

Let me wake up slowly, give me another try, to read the signs around me,
My mind is a book, I can not read between the lines

See Napoli Or Die
E.L



The giant leap of faith to know
You can’t survive the pain will grow
You preach and praise and talk the talk
But I have miles and miles to walk

See Napoli or die
I get the strangest feeling
Kiss “Napolips” goodbye
You’ll never change your mind

I get the strangest feeling
You never change your mind
See Napoli or die

In Napoli the grass is green
The greatest place you’ve never been
Neapolitans have yet to learn
The feeling that you won’t return or change your mind
See Napoli or die

I get the strangest feeling
You never change your mind
See Napoli or die

See Napoli or die
I get the strangest feeling
You never change your mind
See Napoli or die

Come Rain, Come Shine
E.L



They say for every kind of story
There’s a different tale to tell
And who is standing there before me?
No it doesn’t ring a bell

Are you the crown of my creation?
Unspent ages in the making?
Endured still by my indulgance
But now, now you’ve got to go for good

Come rain or come shine
Come rain or come shine

While time spends another a minute
Revisiting the past
And If you could live forever
Would it be twice as hard to last?

And age is nothing but a number
As long as you feel the hunger

Come rain or come shine
Come rain or come shine
Come rain or come shine

Stanford Prison Rules!
E.L


With great power comes great responsibility
To teach the adolescence to know their enemy
Is never far away and how you learn to play
By Stanford prison rules

They’ll spot your every weakness; they’ll break you if you cry
Companies and schoolyards, prisoners and guards
Power isn’t knowledge; all you need is torture tools
Stanford prison rules

They come down on the weak, punished when they speak
Turn the other cheek and work another week
Survival of the thickest bore the genes that swim your pools
Stanford prison rules

And when you quit your day job, and said you’ve had enough
They hold your piece of paper and say you played too rough
Your mind is in a headlock; your heart is getting cruel
Stanford prison rules

There I was, first day at work, ridiculed, treated like a jerk
So it says here that you went to school?
Well did they teach you about Stanford prison rules?
And I don’t want to play this game
And I ain’t gonna bow in shame
For you, I ain’t gonna bow for you
No way, no way

Stanford prison rules
I could never follow
Why must I obey?
Stanford prison rules
Just hold your breath and swallow
And fight another day

Stanford prison rules
The truth is yours tomorrow
They lies are yours today
Stanford prison rules
But I have good intentions
Just come on out and play

819 did a bad thing!
819 did a bad thing!
819 did a bad thing!


Velocity / Mind
J.H


To let it out
Whispering pines, the taste in my mouth
I’ve got my share of broken dreams
Sonority, a distant need
Inscrutable, your meager truth

To let it out
Lost & found, out of bounds
My staring gaze, Raskolnikov
Velocity, to contemplate

To let it out…

Mind

The air is like velvet I’m on my own
Walkin’ a waste space silent and warm

There is a shelter inside these walls
Light up the darkness together at last

Run

Running on water across the globe
Waitless i’m floating all colours are wrong

There is a master that shines for us all
Lights up he darkness revealing the truth

Run

Wintershade
J.H


Cold fever, October, solid as air
Rainbows of whiteness will rise trough the mist

See how it turns up, vanish like smoke

Warm winther, wet pavement, rythms of lights
Newsflashes, false prophets, Numbness inside

White noise, filters, droplets of oil
Earth is turning, changes will come

White noise, filters, droplets of oil
Earth is turning, changes will come

I Dance For You
I.U.H


I dance for you tonight, under the streetlight, twinkling down on me as I dance on bleeding feet

I dance for you tonight, and the moon is passing by
and I won’t stop until you, til you come out and join me.

Darkness and light, sister of the bright morning, you’re not coming through, I can hardly hear your voice
Speak to me, just speak and I will listen, sing to me, just sing and I will dance

I dance for you tonight…

The sky’s getting dark and the moon is a spark of silver, the shadows of my hands are turning grey

I can not sleep, my eyes are still wide open, to see the sunrise of the newborn day

I dance for you…

Right now is the time to shine, I’ll bring all love that I can find, this is a little piece of myself

Let’s sing this simple song,
let’s keep moving on, let’s sing until the night turns into dawn
