Zombie

Another head hangs lowly child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken

But you see it’s not me,
it’s not my family
In your head, in your head they are fighting?

With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying?

In your head, in your head

Zombie, Zombie, ….

What’s in your head, in your head?

Zombie, Zombie, ….

Another mother’s breaking heart is taking over

when the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

It’s the same old theme since 1916

In your head,
In your head they’re still fighting?

With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head they are dying?

In your head, in your head

Zombie, Zombie, ….

What’s in your head, in your head

Zombie, Zombie, ….

Ode to my family

Understand the things I say
Don’t turn away from me
Cause I spent half my life out there
You wouldn’t disagree
D’you see me, d’you see
Do you like me, do you like me standing there
D’you notice, d’you know
Do you see me, do you see me
Does anyone care

Unhappiness, where’s when I was young
And we didn’t give a damn
’cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can
My mother, my mother she hold me
Did she hold me, when I was out there
My father, my father, he liked me
Ol he liked me, does anyone care

Understand what I’ve become
It wasn’t my design
And people everywhere think
Something better than I am
But I miss you, I miss
’cause I liked it, I liked it
When I was out there
D’you know this, d’you know
You did not find me, you did not find
Does anyone care

Unhappiness was when I was young
And we didn’t give a damn
’cause we were raised
To see life as fun and take it if we can
My mother, my mother she hold me
Did she hold me, when I was out there
My father, my father, he liked me
Ol he liked me, does anyone care

Does anyone care

When we were young

Funny how things just tasted better
When we were young
When we were young

Funny how things just seemed so easy
When we were young

It’s been a long day
It’s been a long day
It’s been a long day
It’s been a long day

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better than you on the phone?

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

I think that we weren’t always grateful
For what you’ve done
When we were young

I think that we weren’t always grateful
For what you’ve done

We’ve come a long way
We’ve come a long way
We’ve come a long way
We’ve come a long way

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better than you on the phone?

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better than you on the phone?

You on the phone
You on the phone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better than you on the phone?

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better than you on the phone?

Ordinary day

This is just an ordinary day
Wipe the insecurities away
I can see that the darkness will erode
Looking out the corner of my eye
I can see that the sunshine will explode
Far across the desert in the sky

Beautiful girl
Won’t you be my inspiration?
Beautiful girl
Don’t you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us?
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I’ll never let you down
Won’t let you down

This is the beginning of your day
Life is more intricate than it seems
Always be yourself along the way
Living through the spirit of your dreams

Beautiful girl
Won’t you be my inspiration?
Beautiful girl
Don’t you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us?
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I’ll never let you down
Won’t let you down
Down, down…
