Horrorshow – How We Get Down (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
It’s Friday night
And I’m sitting at home
And I just keep thinking how
Nobody’s ringing my phone
And it’s funny ’cause I thought I wanted to be left alone
But my mates are so entertaining, I’d hate to miss an episode
Who you writing off, who you taking on?
Who you letting go?
Hear the sound of my head going round and round
‘Til it’s too loud to drown it out
See I’m bound to build a mountain out
A molehill but it still gon’ amount to nowt
Ain’t a shadow of a doubt about it
It’ll come round unannounced
Dunno how to deal when I’m
Feeling down and out, sing it loud now
And all my friends are fuckups
But they’re fun to have around
Still every now and then
I need some peace and quiet, turn the dial down
I guess I got that fear of missing out but
But that’s how we get down

[Chorus: Solo]
And you might think you’ve heard me sing this before
But it always comes back for an encore
Don’t you say it’s played out, that’s uncalled for
Won’t ya just hum along to the sound of the chords, ’cause
‘Cause that’s how we get down

[Verse 2: Solo]
It’s Friday night
And I’m out with my friends
Hoodie, t-shirt and shorts on
Never been one for trends
You can guess how this one ends
Well I guess it all depends
If we get our hot little hands on that which we all depend
It make me wonder if it’s real or just pretend
Here we go again
Gather round at the bar go round for round
Working all week we been counting down
Drinking like fish that’s about to drown
We ‘bout ‘bout it now ‘til the power’s out
Or my legs give way like a roundabout
Yeah, it’ll come round unannounced
Dunno how to deal
When I’m feeling down and out
And all my friends are fuckups but they’re fun to have around
If you think they’re great when they’re up
You should see them when they’re coming down
Holding court for days, we each take turns to wear the crown
‘Cause that’s how we get down

[Chorus: Solo]
And you might think you’ve heard me sing this before
But it always comes back for an encore
Don’t you say it’s played out, that’s uncalled for
Won’t ya just hum along to the sound of the chords, ’cause
‘Cause that’s how we get down

[Outro: Solo]
You might think you’ve heard this all before

Horrorshow – Cherry Blossom (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
You know the deal, head over heels
Hand over heart, so you understand it’s real
And ’cause it’s real, it ain’t always perfect
But we put the effort in because it’s always worth it
I’m so glad I found ya, so glad I found ya
My chief navigator, you know that I’d be lost without ya
So I fill up these pages with things I love about ya
Love to be around ya, arms around ya
How ‘bout when it’s warm, let’s take our towels and hit the sand in the tropics
And when it’s cold, let’s take a stroll you can put your hands in my pockets
This ain’t no old fashioned love, don’t keep your face in a locket
But I do see it on my phone home screen every time that I lock it
I promise, whatever you need, if you want it you got it, I swear
Speaking on you, that be my favourite topic
I’ve seen your smile a million times, still I have to stop and stare
When this big old world has got me running scared

[Pre-Chorus: Solo]
I remember what you told me
That you’d be there to hold me
Don’t care about the old me
‘Cause it’s a new day and to you I’m worth my weight in gold

[Chorus: Solo]
So listen what I got to say
When I see her, my señorita
She got me feeling this way, oooh
Off the meter, nobody’s sweeter
I’ll spend the day, make her a mixtape
So listen what I got to say
So every day I wake up next to you and make a promise
To be there in your darkest hour when your days are longest
So won’t you take my hand, forget about your problems
Let’s go dance under the cherry blossoms

[Verse 2: Solo]
It’s early morn, we got the curtains drawn
To keep us sheltered, from the perfect storm
Right now I’m warm, hold me close inside your arms
It make me feel like I’ll be safe from harm
So if you’re ever feeling down, I hope you play this song
And know my days are so much brighter since you came along
Nice to nice to know ya, you and I, we’re feeling right at home
Let’s share some public displays of affection and some private jokes
And I don’t know ‘bout you but your love keep on lifting me higher
Breathing you in until you leave me inspired
Then I sing from the rooftops and preach to the choir
All these notes from your secret admirer

[Chorus: Solo]
So listen what I got to say
When I see her, my señorita
She got me feeling this way, oooh
Off the meter, nobody’s sweeter
I’ll spend the day, make her a mixtape
So listen what I got to say
So every day I wake up next to you and make a promise
To be there in your darkest hour when your days are longest
So won’t you take my hand, forget about your problems
Let’s go dance under the cherry blossoms

[Post-Chorus: Solo]
And maybe I don’t take the time to say this very often
But the way you put a spring up in my step, ooh baby you my cherry blossom
Lady, you got me floating on air like Mary Poppins
If this big old world ever giving me problems

[Bridge: Solo]
I remember what you told me
That you’d be there to hold me
Don’t care about the old me
‘Cause it’s a new day and to you I’m worth my weight in gold
So remember what I told you
That I’d be there to hold you
Won’t try to change or mould you
To me you’re perfect, worth way more than you could weigh in gold

[Chorus: Solo]
So listen what I got to say
When I see her, my señorita
She got me feeling this way, oooh
Off the meter, nobody’s sweeter
I’ll spend the day, make her a mixtape
So listen what I got to say
So every day I wake up next to you and make a promise
To be there in your darkest hour when your days are longest
So won’t you take my hand, forget about your problems
Let’s go dance under the cherry blossoms

Horrorshow – If You Know What I Mean (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Now once upon a time not long ago (Not long ago)
There was an ocker kicking rhymes up in the land of rock and roll
He’s not a rocker, just a stoner on a roll (On a roll)
Goin’ all out on the road and tryna make the honour roll
See I been all up in the dojo practicin’ my braggadocio
Learned to toot my own horn, blow my saxophone and my oboe
Soprano, alto, baritone, mastered my high and low notes
A quick jazz cigarette then I’m takin’ my solo
If you ain’t heard about it ask around
On any given Sunday bet we turn the party out
Get love on every corner walkin’ through our part of town
Yeah, you that lucky winner, Price Is Right and so you better come on down
To the inner west, come and visit the turf
You’ll see my crew be runnin’ Sydney like the City2Surf
From the pretty beach sides to the sticks in the ‘burbs
They say "that dude Smooth Nicholas, he slick with them words"

[Hook: Solo]
I was rollin’ with my brosef and he turned and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
I said "I ain’t one to blow my own, but I tend to agree
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean, what I mean"
Now the punters say they love the way I spit it on the beat
It put the roof over my head and put the kicks up on my feet
Nothin’ changed, still a couple snakes, we cut them blades of green
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Verse 2: Solo]
The sorta shit that they let fly, I could do with my eyes closed
But I’m taking the high road, tryna scale heights, never fall off cause I climb slow
See my sign’s goat, as in G.O.A.T
Make my way from A to B while spelling out what’s plain to see
My man was shotgun in the ‘Yota, looked over and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
When we’d rock up to your house party, rollin’ twenty deep
Turnin’ off your Black Eyed Peas and throwin’ on some BDP
R.B.G, R.O.C, Eminem or D.R.E
R.S.E, BnE or Suffa, Pressure, and Debris
For the moment probably be that O.V.O or T.D.E
But homie this that O.N.E, that D.A.Y, that E.N.T
Nowadays we got our names up on the list and drinks are free
It’s like something I think I saw in a vision or a dream
I’m tryna paint the kind of picture that make you picture the scene
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Hook: Solo]
I was rollin’ with my brosef and he turned and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
I said "I ain’t one to blow my own, but I tend to agree
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean, what I mean
Now the punters say they love the way I spit it on the beat
It put the roof over my head and put the kicks up on my feet
Nothin’ changed, still a couple snakes, we cut them blades of green
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Outro: Solo]
Don’t wanna blow my own trumpet, don’t wanna toot my own horn
Don’t wanna beat my own drum kit, don’t wanna write my own score
But they like it, they love it, they buy it, they bump it, recite it
Turn it up and then they bump it up some more
Don’t wanna blow my own trumpet, don’t wanna toot my own horn
Don’t wanna beat my own drum kit, don’t wanna write my own score
But they like it, they love it, they buy it, they bump it, recite it
Turn it up and then they bump it up some more

Horrorshow – Our Time (Bardo State Album)

[Intro: Solo]
Two’s company
Three’s a crowd
Unless it’s you
Me and the clouds

[Verse 1: Solo]
Hey little lady, what you wanna do today?
Well I was hoping that’s what you would say
She said she feeling adventurous, she wanna attempt
A ménage à trois avec moi and Mary Jane
The three of us could sit up in my room and ruminate
I love the way that you communicate
Or we can make like Celsius, take one, two—then illuminate
Or maybe we should choose to make the most of this beautiful day
Take a stroll in the park ‘til we find us a spot
Nice view of the bay, then I’ll call an Uber to take us home
And when we get there, we can get blown
We can drift off, we can just let go
We can move with at very own tempo
So what you say baby? Let’s go

[Chorus: Solo]
Long as I’m, by your side
It’s alright
Laughing in the twilight as the hours float on by
So just let your hand, reach for mine
It’s alright
There’s no need to rush so baby, let’s just take our time

[Verse 2: Solo]
This goes out to the stoner girls, blowing kisses
She got the stash in her handbag, handy with the scissors
Know her way around a pack of Rizlas
Eating munchies watching Fuck, That’s Delicious, see
Two’s company, three’s a crowd, but I wrote this one for you
So you could have something to smoke a blunt to
Maybe I’ll roll me one too
And when we come to
We’ll be looking in the fridge for the answers
Hungry enough to eat the deer and the antlers
Laughing at your witty banter
Then we retire and try out a couple tantras
And if I could speak candidly
This here’s just a fantasy
Nothing shady, but if you wanna understand the tree
Then float the idea yo, let’s plant the seed
Won’t you dance with me?

[Chorus: Solo]
Long as I’m, by your side
It’s alright
Laughing in the twilight as the hours float on by
So just let your hand, reach for mine
It’s alright
There’s no need to rush so baby, let’s just take our time

Horrorshow – Eat The Cake (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
She rocked up to the party in more ways than one
Think she got a head start when the games begun
Chasing stardom in the slalom
And I hope she get her medal when the race is run
Caked up—her wallet and her make-up
Think she coming off a breakup
And she finna stay up all night
Chase dawn light and some validation
The fact she dunno that she’s more
Than just a whole lot to look at
Is the type of shit a judge oughta throw a book at
She asking me where Bozo and Crook at
What she really wanna know is where the icing shug at
Socialite, gotta make sacrifices
She never satisfied, lost her appetite
But then again baby, maybe you should have a bite

[Chorus: Solo]
I swear at parties these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
When the birthday boy says you can cut me a slice
But I won’t enjoy the taste
I swear at parties at these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
Stomach smaller than my eyes, I can’t wipe the grin off my face
But I got a whole lot on my, whole lot on my, whole lot on my plate
And I swear

[Verse 2: Solo]
He turned up to the party in more ways than one
Tomorrow he gonna burn up when he face the sun
Dunno if he had the red pill or the blue pill
But either way, he ain’t the one
While the pushermen and the teachers talk chemistry
Trade recipes, make revelry
Prolly fail in a litmus test
Sea of beer crimes with no witnesses
So he chop lines up, rearrange them
Play a little word association
All the while he performs
Makes sure he’s centre of attention, overcompensation
Settle down mate – listen here guy
Let’s get it straight like a queer eye
Here’s a little secret from me to you
If you wanna have your cake, eat it and not eat it too

[Chorus: Solo]
I swear at parties these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
When the birthday boy says you can cut me a slice
But I won’t enjoy the taste
I swear at parties at these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
Stomach smaller than my eyes, I can’t wipe the grin off my face
But I got a whole lot on my, whole lot on my, whole lot on my plate
And I swear

[Bridge: Solo]
Dunno if it’s the best damn time
But I’d put it up there
Yeah I lost my mind
But I know I put it somewhere
Yeah the best damn time
I put it up there
Think I lost my mind, but…

[Chorus: Solo]
I swear at parties these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
When the birthday boy says you can cut me a slice
But I won’t enjoy the taste
I swear at parties at these days, don’t nobody eat that cake – no way
Stomach smaller than my eyes, I can’t wipe the grin off my face
But I got a whole lot on my, whole lot on my, whole lot on my plate
And I swear

Horrorshow – Wasteland (Bardo State Album)

[Chorus: Turquoise Prince]
Faces in the crowd, swaying on the floor
Posing me a question, I cannot ignore
Longing for euphoria, puts me in the wrong
Tryna escape but the hold is just too strong
I got a splitting headache
Temples throbbing and my mouth is cotton
Can’t believe I went and did this shit again
Drinking liquor till it send me in a spin and then I
Wake up in the morning, living in a world of pain

[Verse 1: Solo]
Wasteland—see round here we do this every weekend
Dead of winter, silly season, we can always find a reason
And I never seem to learn from my mistakes
Moderate the intake
I swear by now I’ve died a thousand deaths this way
Way back before this Horrorsquad shit ever shit was poppin’ off
I was working overtime at the bottle shop
Every day I’d see the same faces clocking off
Shuffle in, shuffle out, paper bag, on the grog
It made me wonder, what is it that we’re switching on and off
When we listen to our inner monologue?
What is it we looking for that we too scared to find?
What is it we don’t wanna see that’s got us getting blind?
In this colony of ills
To keep it 100-proof, here’s the truth distilled
Go and look up the rum corps
You’ll see this ain’t no run of the mill
This the land of the lockout and the 6 o’clock swill
So what’s the deal?

[Chorus: Turquoise Prince]
Faces in the crowd, swaying on the floor
Posing me a question, I cannot ignore
Longing for euphoria, puts me in the wrong
Tryna escape but the hold is just too strong
I got a splitting headache
Temples throbbing and my mouth is cotton
Can’t believe I went and did this shit again
Drinking liquor till it send me in a spin and then I
Wake up in the morning, living in a world of pain

[Verse 2: Solo]
Friday night and we were numbered ‘bout a dozen
Too much substance to be saying anything of substance
But of course that don’t stop the discussion
We buzzing, talking over the top of one other, we bugging
When some some youngin in the corner pipes up and says something like
‘I’ma get fucked up tonight’, well alright
Spoken like a man on a mission
To carry on a great Australian tradition
Dunno if I’d call it peer pressure
But you know what they say about those birds of a feather, they flock together
And I can’t remember the last time I had a night that I can’t remember
So a bender is the very first item on the agenda
We keep going at this rate, we gon’ detonate
‘I’m just going for one drink’, ‘Yeah whatever mate.’
Won’t you pull yourself together?
Yeah I know you meant well enough, but shit
Alcohol is a hell of a drug, got me staring at the…

[Chorus: Turquoise Prince]
Faces in the crowd, swaying on the floor
Posing me a question, I cannot ignore
Longing for euphoria, puts me in the wrong
Tryna escape but the hold is just too strong
I got a splitting headache
Temples throbbing and my mouth is cotton
Can’t believe I went and did this shit again
Drinking liquor till it send me in a spin and then I
Wake up in the morning, living in a world of pain

Horrorshow – Ceiling Fan (Bardo State Album)

[Chorus: Solo]
Stare at the ceiling fan
The planet keeps spinning
All the Gandhis, the Neros
The ones and the zeroes, the heroes and villains
And everywhere I look it seems like the bad guys are winning
And I got a bad feeling
That this shit is just the beginning

[Verse 1: Solo]
I’m hoping it’s true what they say
That everything’s not what it seems
‘Cause sometimes it seems like the
Whole world is coming apart at the seams
Are we asleep? Lost in a dream
We sit in the dark and stare at the screen
But I’m anti-social man, I ain’t no Instagrammer
Good intentions and bad grammar
You can get at me on Twitter
But I ain’t here for the chitter chatter
I’m the former, they the latter
They just smile for the camera
Says a lot about the state of the game
That the biggest rapper in the world is an actor
We don’t wanna hear what matters
Please just drop another banger
Won’t somebody help?
‘Cause I’m bout to have me a meltdown like a Fukushima reactor, yeah

[Chorus: Solo]
Stare at the ceiling fan
The planet keeps spinning
All the Gandhis, the Neros
The ones and the zeroes, the heroes and villains
And everywhere I look it seems like the bad guys are winning
And I got a bad feeling
That this shit is just the beginning

[Verse 2: Omar Musa]
Waging a war, aim from the fringe
Speaking my truth to the centre of power
Warming my hands, burning a bridge
Give me the anger I turn it up louder, see
I’m kicking the door off its hinges
I’m flipping with ninjas, aiming at princes’
Cultural cringes, up in their ivory towers
Gotta resist – with banners and fists
We shatter their myths
They’ll tell you I’m animalistic, I am a mis-
Fit like a glove when they tell you that I am the enemy
I am the one you should fear
I’m up in the sky, I’m out on the sea, I’m right at your door, I am already here – yeah
Since birth in a one horse town
Since a redhead stepped in the house
Opened up the gates, let loose all the hounds
Tryna breathe life in the voice that drowned
Us, them, guns, pens, watching the fan on the ceiling again
Revolution a second my pupils pinwheeling again
Turn into mandalas, made out of brilliant gems
Speak with the force of a million men
Pen dance like Bangarra
Sling slang where they hang martyrs

[Verse 3: Solo]
On the screen they seem so sombre
While they preach their divide and conquer
Fear your neighbour, fear the stranger, fear the other, they are monsters
They have not names for they are not human, nah they are just numbers
The lies we try to tell ourselves to justify the numbness
Better put your wall up, never let your guard down
They will eat your heart out, when we shut them borders
Fall in line and join the chorus
Saints living in squalor, villains sitting in office
The land of broken promise, the last days are upon us, yeah
I stare at the ceiling fan, I was sitting with God
I asked what he’s thinking, what go through his mind as he thicken the plot
But he didn’t reply, just puffed on a milligram
We sat there in silence as I wondered when he’s gon’ finish the job

Horrorshow – Never Say Never (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Sun, moon and stars
Struck through the heart, now I
Dunno who to trust, who to ask, and ah
Listen, this ain’t some coup de grâce
And I hope it isn’t rude to ask, but…
Girl I wish you wouldn’t touch me there
It’s a reminder that I ain’t over my quest
To get up inside of your underwear
And I ain’t know that I’d find you here, yeah I mighta guessed
But I ain’t expect you
So I ain’t come prepared
And yeah you caught me unawares
Still I’m hoping that you come as you are, pull up a chair
Till we throwing back a couple of laughs, couple of stares
Now we, tryna disguise it but we both know something’s there
Chat for five minutes longer, vibe getting stronger, right?
Try keep it on the sly but it’s on the rise
Lines blurring that define certain wrong or right
Tryna put up a fight but it’s on my mind
See the problem is, we never came saw and conquered it
And now instead we just stay holding onto it
So captivating, no wonder I’m feeling captured
Caesar and Cleopatra, let me proceed to get at ya
Naturally, perfume and cologne setting the tone
I mean, you know how it be when we get in the zone
Over my head, so I’m heading home
Alcohol and pheromones
I just had to let you know, that

[Chorus: Solo]
It’s a good thing that we’re never alone, never alone yeah
‘Cause I don’t really think that we could keep it together, keep it together
And I can see the things that are setting in stone, setting in stone yeah
Still a voice in my head saying never say never, never say never
But darling, when it all breaks down you will find
I ain’t gonna be leaving here with you tonight
We shouldn’t be left unsupervised
Maybe we’ll just keep this between you and I
But boy don’t act like I can’t read between the lines
See it in your eyes, I ain’t gotta read your mind
I know you know we both wanna give in to desire
But I won’t let ya

[Hook: Solo]
Never say never, never say never, never say, never say, never, never say never
Never say never, never say never, never say, never say, never, never say never, uh

[Bridge: Solo]
Girl I wish you wouldn’t dress like that
It makes me wonder if you’ve found another brother
Who can kiss your neck like that
I mean I know you’re an independent sister
But does your mister know you be sending me texts like that?
Then again, who am I talk? ‘Cos when I get the message I’ma text right back
Falling victim to the laws of attraction, can’t get no satisfaction
Knowing this can never happen, singing

[Chorus: Solo]
It’s a good thing that we’re never alone, never alone yeah
Cos I don’t really think that we could keep it together, keep it together
And I can see the things that are setting in stone, setting in stone yeah
Still a voice in my head saying never say never, never say never
But darling, when it all breaks down you will find
I ain’t gonna be leaving here with you tonight
We shouldn’t be left unsupervised
Maybe we’ll just keep this between you and I
But boy don’t act like I can’t read between the lines
See it in your eyes, I ain’t gotta read your mind
I know you know we both wanna give in to desire

Horrorshow – After Dark (Bardo State Album)

[Chorus: Hayley Mary]
Now I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
Nothing will ever be the same
Said I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
Nothing will ever be the same

[Verse 1: Solo]
What do you say when words fail?
When there’s no cure for what ails
No they won’t heal, to no avail
When the phone rings and it hits home, cos it’s so real
We so frail, curtailed, we can’t deal
Words can’t capture
When the heart fractures
Or what it sounds like when the hourglass shatters
All that matters is
That we keep moving forward and never backwards
The moon pulls the tide as it wanes and waxes
The world is but a stage, you and I we are just actors
Life is but a story and we only get a chapter
And that fact alone, might be enough
When times are tough, to pick us up
And light the way and guide us home
Twisting and a-turning while we living and a-learning
So we keep the candle burning, knowing you won’t be returning

[Chorus: Hayley Mary]
Now I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
Nothing will ever be the same
Said I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
Nothing will ever be the same

[Verse 2: Hayley Mary]
Ain’t it a shame, when we all look so nice
In our shirts and ties
That we just came to say goodbye
And so I pray, we meet in paradise
By the candlelight
But I just came to say goodbye
Twisting and a-turning
While we living and a-learning
So we keep that candle burning
Knowing you won’t be returning
Always twisting and a-turning
While we living and a-learning
So we keep that candle burning
Knowing you won’t be returning
Now I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
And the wind is howling, blowing out your flame
Till a fading memory is that all that remains
Nothing will ever be the same
Said I’m walking through the park, after dark
And I’m calling out your name
And I hope you make it back to whence we came
Where before we were as one, now torn in twain
Nothing will ever be the same

Horrorshow – Tell Him He’s Dreaming (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
If it was up to me
Then I’d be chilling, living lavish, life of luxury
Just kicking back up on the beach and putting up my feet
Yeah we got a cup in each, when we done with these
We gon’ tell the waiter please, pour the bubbly
And raise a toast to our present company
See luckily, this never has to end
Perpetual present tense, so in summary
It’s Tokyo, Tuscany, wherever it’s summery, oh!
That’s when my phone went off and burst my bubble
Then I was right back in the rubble where the trouble be
Syd city, sitting pretty, looking lovely
Another rainy day at home with a cup of tea
Jotting scriptures, washing dishes, stacking cutlery
Long division got me wishing for that currency
Hoping Mr Murrihy can up the fee
So that I can see these dreams come to be

[Pre-Chorus: Solo]
Just don’t tell him that he’s dreaming
Tell him he’s dreaming
Riding out the seasons, rhyming for a reason
Finding something to believe in

[Chorus: Kai]
I saw you in my dreams last night
You were in my, you were in my
Or maybe it was in a past life
You were in my, you were in my

[Verse 2: Kai]
If it was up to me, then I’d be right right right
Where I’m meant to be
Chilling by your side, but time is never free
So I ride ride ride through all this ugly
But I keep dreaming, dreaming
You know I got big plans
Crystal pools and watermelon for my big fam
Stars at night that last forever, check the wingspan
But nothing promised gotta get it can I live man
Can I live?
I said Young Hitchcock, sunset and that ziplock
Cloud porn in my brainbox I’m seeing shapes when I’m intox
Up late till I drift off, tryna lift lift lift lift lift
Your spirit up when we kick off
Kick goals like Cahill when the kid cross
My brown skin home to imperfect
But I make it worth it
I been down, been low, but Y.F.T.F.B been working
Till I’m out here in Sydney, with the crowd singing with me
Feel like a dream, won’t somebody just pinch me?

[Pre-Chorus: Solo]
Just don’t tell him that he’s dreaming
Tell him he’s dreaming
Riding out the seasons, rhyming for a reason
Finding something to believe in
‘Cause looks can be deceiving
So won’t you tell him that he’s dreaming
Aw yeah, wide asleep, not a peep
Ain’t no telling where you’re finding me this evening

[Chorus: Kai]
I saw you in my dreams last night
You were in my, you were in my
Or maybe it was in a past life
You were in my, you were in my

[Outro: Solo]
At night when my head hits the pillow
I find I go flying out the window
To a place where it gets so deep
Where your past and your fate both meet

Horrorshow – Push (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Standing at the gate wishing you goodbye
‘You better go, you got a plane to catch’
You said you don’t know when you’ll make it back
There was nothing I could say to that
You gotta live out your dreams, gotta make that call
Gotta take that chance, gotta stand up tall
Gotta fly so high, and if you should fall
Just know that I’ll be there to catch you through it all
Before you go we hold the phone up, snap a frame
So we can look back down memory lane
Feels like I keep on tryna capture these moments
But they keep slippin’ through my fingers all the same
And these days everybody’s making their nest
Doing their best to get ahead in this mess
And I don’t wanna live with regret
So instead I forgive and try and never forget
To just

[Hook: Taj Ralph]
Hold on
As far as they may seem sometimes
You always got your dreams
But you gotta
Let go
As hard as it may be sometimes
Things that could’ve been

[Post-Hook: Taj Ralph & Solo]
You gotta have the skills to pay the bills
Time is catching up; hot on your heels
Gotta wait your turn ‘fore you take the wheel
Learn to make a meal ‘fore you make a mill’
Said you gotta have the skills to pay the bills
Time is catching up; hot on your heels
Learn to make a meal ‘fore you make a mill’
Nothing stands still and that’s on the real

[Verse 2: Solo]
Do you ever wish that you could be in two places
At the same time? Living different lives, coexisting
Do you ever wish that you could know the ending
So you could go back to the beginning and get it right?
I used to feel like anything was possible
Like I could head in any direction I wanted to
Overcome any obstacle, but I learned that
Thinking that way isn’t logical, it’s not optional
You gotta pick a path
And stay true to whatever’s in your heart
And if that means that we gotta be apart
Well there’ll be days when that’s gonna be hard
But we gotta try and

[Hook: Taj Ralph]
Hold on
As far as they may seem sometimes
You’ve always got your dreams
But you gotta
Let go
As hard as it may be sometimes
Things that could’ve been

[Post-Hook: Taj Ralph & Solo]
You gotta have the skills to pay the bills
Time is catching up; hot on your heels
Gotta wait your turn ‘fore you take the wheel
Learn to make a meal ‘fore you make a mill’
Said you gotta have the skills to pay the bills
Time is catching up; hot on your heels
Learn to make a meal ‘fore you make a mill’
Nothing stands still and that’s on the real

Horrorshow – For The Life Of Me (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Strutting on the sidewalk
Stuck up in a time warp
Waiting on the sky fall
Any minute now
You can’t get your mind off
Something in your blind spot
What you gonna die for?
Better work it out
But every once in a while
Still find that I got a reason to smile
‘Cause I know that one of these days I’ll be going on a date
Yeah we’ll be going out in style
With a fly lady by the name of Fate
And for my own sake, well I hope she running late

[Pre-Chorus: Solo]
I see it before it happens
Having visions, premonitions and they always coming true
They always coming true
I see it ‘fore it happens
Having premonitions and yeah they always coming true
Tell me what am I to do

[Chorus: Solo]
And I still can’t figure out why
In the end I’ma say my goodbye
As I throw my peace sign to the sky
Singing I can’t for the life of me
Yeah I still can’t figure out why
In the end I’ma say my goodbye
As I throw my peace sign to the sky
Singing I can’t for the life of me

[Verse 2: Solo]
This ain’t the time for stage fright
Falling by the wayside
Baby this is game time
Better knuckle down
Dunno how they take life
Me I’m tryna save mine
‘Cause I know that day by
Day it’s running out
But the thing is that I still can’t figure out
If my head would fit the crown
If they ever make me ruler ‘fore they put me in the ground
Simmer down
‘Cause letting those sort of thoughts weigh you down
Is played out like rap songs ‘bout back in the day and living in the now
You can say I’m living in the past, but see, that’s only half the truth
Because I’m living in the future boy
Look behind you, good sir, I’m surpassing you

[Pre-Chorus: Solo]
I see it before it happens
Having visions, premonitions and they always coming true, they always coming true
I see it ‘fore it happens
Having premonitions and yeah they always coming true
Tell me what am I to do

[Verse 3: Solo]
No need for hesitation, just let me set it straight
A little meditation mixed in with the celebration
Our spot is not yet vacant, the stakes is high
It’s a percentage game, we play it every day
And everywhere’s the same, ‘How are you?’
‘Who me? Never better.’
Then proceed to make a bit of small talk about the weather
While we living in the future, past, present and forever right
We still can’t figure out the question ‘Why?’
Singing I can’t for the life of me
I can’t for the life of me (repeat x 5)
Tell me what am I to do?

[Chorus: Solo]
And I still can’t figure out why
In the end I’ma say my goodbye
As I throw my peace sign to the sky
Singing I can’t for the life of me
Yeah I still can’t figure out why
In the end I’ma say my goodbye
As I throw my peace sign to the sky
Singing I can’t for the life of me

[Outro: Solo]
I can’t for the life of me (repeat x 4)

Jay-Z – FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt (feat. Rick Ross)

[Intro: Pimp C]
"A little over a year ago I was in bondage, and now I’m back out here reaping the blessings and getting the benefits that go along with it, everything that’s out here for kings like us. The reason why we like this, this jewelry and this diamonds and stuff, they don’t understand is, because we really from Africa, and that’s where all this stuff come from. And we originated from kings, you know what I’m saying? So don’t look down on the youngsters because they wanna have shiny things. It’s in our genes, know what I’m saying? We just don’t all know our history, so—"

Shopping bags, I’m a tourist, nigga
Money talk I speak fluent, nigga
Reeboks on, I just do it, nigga
Look at me, I’m pure nigga

But we the Black mob, we gonna set it
Peel off in a Lamborghini Countach

Joy Denalane – Zuhause

[Strophe 1]
Ich traf heute Freunde
Und sie sprachen über mich
Ich glaub sie merkten es nicht
Und im leisen Satz Gewalten und die
Worte brachten mich
Aus meinem Gleichgewicht
Und du hast mich immer bewahrt
Hast mich vor diesem Blick gewarnt
Doch gemerkt hab ich’s oft nicht
Und jetzt schein ich mir so endlich
Seit du fort, aber nicht weg bist
Veränder ich mich

[Refrain]
Ich bleib in deinen Fußstapfen stehen
Ist nicht leicht für mich so weiter zu gehen
Würd gerne wissen, wie du’s verstehst
Und ich folge deinen Wegen
So als gingst du noch durch’s Leben
Bleib in deinen Fußstapfen stehen
Würd gern in deine Augen sehen
Und ich frag wo komm ich her
Du sagst ich weiß es nicht mehr
Doch das ist dein Zuhause
Das ist dein Zuhause
Das ist dein Zuhause

[Strophe 2]
Ich traf heute Zweifel
Und mit ihnen kam die Sorge
Sie versteckten sie nicht
Zwischen den Geschichten
Den Gedanken und Berichten
Mein scheues Gesicht
Und ich liebe diese Straßen
All die Winkel und Fassaden
Doch manchmal vergessen sie mich
Und das Spiegelbild im Fenster
Zeigt verschwommene Gespenster
Nichts scheint wirklich zu stimmen

[Refrain]
Ich bleib in deinen Fußstapfen stehen
Ist nicht leicht für mich so weiter zu gehen
Würd gerne wissen, wie du’s verstehst
Und ich folge deinen Wegen
So als gingst du noch durch’s Leben
Und bleib in deinen Fußstapfen stehen
Würd gern in deine Augen sehen
Und ich frag wo komm ich her
Du sagst ich weiß es nicht mehr
Doch das ist dein Zuhause
Das ist dein Zuhause
Das ist mein Zuhause

Ich traf heute Zweifel
Und sie sprachen über mich
Ich glaub sie merkten es nicht

Ed Sheeran – Drunk

I wanna be drunk when I wake up
On the right side of the wrong bed
And every excuse I made up
Tell you the truth I hate
What didn’t kill me
It never made me stronger at all
Love will scar your make-up lip sticks to me
So now I’ll maybe leave back there
I’m sat here wishing I was sober
I know I’ll never hold you like I used to

But our house gets cold when you cut the heating
Without you to hold I’ll be freezing
Can’t rely on my heart to beat it
‘Cause you take part of it every evening
Take words out of my mouth just from breathing
Replace with phrases like when you’re leaving me

Should I, should I?
Maybe I’ll get drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

I wanna hold your heart in both hands
I’ll watch it fizzle at the bottom of a Coke can
And I’ve got no plans for the weekend
So shall we speak then
Keep it between friends
Though I know you’ll never love me like you used to

There maybe other people like us
You see the flicker of the clip when they light up
Flames just create us, burns don’t heal like before
You don’t hold me anymore

On cold days Coldplay’s out like the band’s the name
I know I can’t heal things with a hand shake
You know I can’t change as I began saying
You cut me wide open like landscape
Open bottles of beer but never champagne
To applaud you with the sound that my hands make

Should I, should I?
Maybe I’ll get drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

All by myself
I’m here again
All by myself
You know I’ll never change
All by myself
All by myself
I’m just drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

Elvis Presley – True Love Travels On A Gravel Road

Suntanned, windblown, honeymooners at last alone
Feeling far above par, oh how lucky we are
While I give to you and you give to me

True love, true love
So, on and on it will always be
True love, true love

For you and I have a guardian angel on high
With nothing to do but to give to you
And to give to me love forever true

Elvis Presley – You’ll Think Of Me

I’m sorry now girl, but I must leave you
There’s something deep inside my soul keeps calling me
The winter wind girl, will not deceive you

And in your cold and empty bed
You’ll think of me, oh yes
You’ll think of me

You’ll see me coming, you’ll see me going
Don’t ask me why, I’m just the kind needs to be free
Just like that outlaw wind keeps on a-blowin’

Yeah, in your cold and empty bed
You’ll think of me, oh yes
You’ll think of me

You’ll think of me

Now I know you loved me just like I wanted
I know you’d follow me across an endless sea
But baby, I’ve got a heart that’s haunted

Yeah, in your cold and empty bed
You’ll think of me, oh yes
You’ll think of me

Ah, but you should know girl, that I’ll be crying
Out on that lonely road where not a soul can see
I’ll shed my tears for a love that’s dying

Yeah, in your cold and empty bed
You’ll think of me, oh yes
You’ll think of me

The summer sun girl will bring a stranger
And he’ll be better to you than I used to be
And when he takes you into his arms girl

Well, in your warm and loving bed
You won’t think of me, no, no
You won’t think of me

You won’t think of me

Then in your warm and loving bed
You won’t think of me, no, no
You won’t think of me

You won’t think of me
You won’t think of me
You won’t think of me

NateWantsToBattle – I’d Love To Break It You lyrics

(Verse 1)
Walking on the line
Directions lead you to who knows where
Say you’re doing fine
But no one asked and nobody cares

(Hook)
Now I’m watching from the outside
Hear all the outcries
But no one will lend a hand
They’re setting up and you’re the punch line
You learned you’re never in demand

(Chorus)
You’re on your own
Such a damn shame that I had to break it to you
You’re all alone
You ought to just stay quiet
You can’t do that can you
Parading like you own the place
But give it time we’ll all forget your face
You’re own your own
Such a damn shame no one’s ever coming for you

(Verse 2)
Starting at the sky
You dreams to one day become that star
The journeys do or die
But you’re not willing to go that far

(Hook)
Now I’m watching from the outside
You’re on the decline
Yeah you’re falling way too fast
They’re setting up and you’re not in sight
Because you know that you can’t last

(Chorus)
You’re on your own
Such a damn shame that I had to break it to you
You’re all alone
You ought to just stay quiet
You can’t do that can you
Parading like you own the place
But give it time we’ll all forget your face
You’re own your own
Such a damn shame no one’s ever coming for you

Such a damn shame no one’s ever coming for you

(Bridge)
Said I’m watching from the outside
You’re on the decline
Yeah you’re falling way too fast
They’re setting up and you’re not in sight
You’re talking tongue tied
Because your that you can’t last
Now I’m watching from the outside
Hear all the outcries
But no one will lend a hand
They’re setting up and you’re the punch line
You learned you’re never in demand

(Chorus)
You’re on your own
Such a damn shame that I had to break it to you
You’re all alone
You ought to just stay quiet
You can’t do that can you
Parading like you own the place
But give it time we’ll all forget your face
You’re own your own
Such a damn shame no one’s ever coming for you

Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – I Need To Know lyrics

[JEKYLL]
I need to know
The nature of the demons that possess Man’s soul
I need to know
Why man’s content to let them make him less than whole

Why does he revel in murder and madness?
What is it makes him be less than he should?
Why is he doomed not to reach his potential?
His soul is black when he turns his back upon good

I need to find
A way to get inside the tortured mind of man
I need to try
To separate the good and evil, if I can

One thing is certain—the evil is stronger
Good fights hopeless and desperate fight
I must find ways of adjusting the balance
To bring him back from the empty black edge of night!

I need to go
Where no man has ventured before
To search for the key to the door
That will end all this senseless and tragic decay!
But how to go?
I need to know!

I need to learn
The secrets of the mind that we can not discern
I need to learn
The things that make men pass the point of no return

Why does a wise man take leave of his senses?
Where is that fine line where sanity melts?
When does intelligence give way to madness?
A moment comes when a man becomes something else

I need to know
Why man plays this strange double game
His hand always close to the flame
It’s a deal with the Devil he cannot disclaim
But what’s his aim?
I need to know!

Dear God, guide me
Show me how to succeed
With your wisdom inside me
Henry Jekyll will follow where ever you lead!

I need to see
The truth other men cannot see
To be things that others can’t be
Give me the courage to go where no angel will go
And I will go!
I need to know!

[JEKYLL]
How can I continue on
When they can block each step I take?

[UTTERSON]
Don’t destroy the work you’ve done
Henry, there’s too much at stake!

[JEKYLL]
But what if they are right
Have I let my dreams misguide me?
I’m so weary of this fight
There’s so little left inside me

[UTTERSON]
And what if you are right
And you didn’t see it through?
You’ve got to see it through

When this all began
You knew there’d be a price to pay
Too late now to turn away
You have come too far

I know you’ll find the way Henry. Goodnight

When this all began, I knew there’d be a price…

Mike Ellis – Hang On Baby lyrics

I’m traveling tonight
And I’m heading for you
Cause you know baby
Our love is true
We cant deny the way we feel

My heart is aching
And my fever is high
Without you I know
My heart will die
This pain for your love
Only you can heal

The radio’s on
Playing your favorite song
A few more hours
It wont be long
We can sing it
As we drive away

It’s not been so long
Since your daddy said no
Guess what baby
What he doesnt know
I’m gonna hold you
Til the end of my days

Hang on baby
I’m coming for you
Hang on darlin
You know it’s true
You’re the only one for me

Hang on baby
I’m coming for you
Hang on darlin
You know it’s true
You’re the only one for me

You told me last night
I better be on my way
We’ll here I come
I’ll be there today
I cant wait to see your smile

Dont worry baby
It’ll be alright
They dont know
We’ll be gone by night
Hold on baby, I got one more mile

Hang on baby
I’m coming for you
Hang on darlin
You know it’s true
You’re the only one for me

Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – Facade lyrics

[ENSEMBLE]
If you live around here
You need cash in the bank
‘Cause the houses ’round here
Are all flashy and swank
An’ the front bit, ha
‘at’s what’s called a facade!

All the people ’round here
Are as posh as can be
You won’t seem hobnobbin’
With rubbish like me
It’s the snob bit
Also called a facade

Every day
People, in their own sweet way
Like to add a coat of paint
And be what they ain’t!

That’s how our little –
Game is played
Livin’ out their masquerade
Getting rich and getting laid
Who’d want to trade?

But there’s one thing I know
And I know it for sure:
This disease that we’ve got
Has got no ready cure!
And I’m certain
Life is terribly hard
When your life’s a facade!

Every night here one house
Or another is a funhouse
‘Cause there’s someone giving a party
As you see, sir!

This one here tonight
Is rather special, am I right?
It’s the betrothal of Sir Danver’s
Daughter, Lisa

Sir Danvers Carew is a good man
They call him the creme de la creme
Whatever that means
He’s a bloody sight better than them!

Nearly everyone you meet
When walking down a London street
Pretends to be a pillar of society

A model of propriety
Sobriety, and piety
Who’s never even heard of notoriety

The ladies an’ gents ‘ere before you
Which none of ’em ever admits
May have saintly looks
But they’re sinners an’ crooks!

Hypocrites!

If you live around here
You need lots of panache
If you live in down, dear
Then you must cut a dash
T’isn’t hard, dear
To create a facade

You must seem to be rich
And to have money to burn
Even though it’s a bitch
Spending more than you earn
That’s the game here
And the name is facade

One or two
Might look kinda well-to-do
But I bet you precious few
Have payed for their boots

I’m inclined to think –
Half mankind thinks the other
Half is blind
Wouldn’t be surprised to find
They’re all in cahoots

At the end of the day
They don’t mean what they say
They don’t say what they mean
They don’t ever come clean
And the answer
Is it’s all a facade

Call a walk promenade
Call a street boulevard
Grease your hair with pomade
You’ll be held in regard

And I betcha
If you stay on your guard (stay on your guard)
They’ll all say you’re a card
People love the facade (stay on your guard)
What’s behind the facade?

[JEKYLL]
Look behind the facade

Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – Bring On The Men lyrics

[LUCY (with prostitutes in background)]
There was a time, I don’t know when
I didn’t have much time for men
But this is now and that was then, I’m learning

A girl alone, all on her own
Must try to have a heart of stone
So I try not to make it known, my yearning

I try to show I have no need
I really do – I don’t succeed

So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

I always knew, I always said
That silk and lace in black and red
Will drive a man right off his head, it’s easy

So many men, so little time
I want them all, is that a crime?

[MEN]
No!

[LUCY]
I don’t know why they say that I’m too easy

They make me laugh, they make me cry
They make me sick, so God knows why

We say bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

They break your heart
They steal your soul
Take you apart
And yet they somehow make you whole

So what’s the game?
I suppose a rose by any other name
The perfume and the prick’s the same

(interlude with prostitutes teasing johns)

[LUCY]
I like to have a man for breakfast each day
I’m very social and I like it that way
By late mid-morning I need something to munch
So I ask over two men for lunch

And men are mad about my afternoon teas
They’re quite informal, I just do it to please
Those triple sandwiches are my favorite ones
I’m also very partial to buns

My healthy appetite gets strongest at night
My at-home dinners are my men-friends’ delight
When I invite the fellas over to dine
They all come early, in bed by nine

[LUCY]
So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

[PROSTITUTE ENSEMBLE]
Big men, small men
Short men, tall men
I guess that means almost all men
I’m a player, long as they are men men men!

And marvels only science can find
To shape tomorrow for mankind
And I can show them to you
If you wish me to

Friends, you’re aware there are two sides to each of us
Good and evil, compassion and hate
If we could extract all the evil from each of us
Think of the world that we could create
A world without anger or violence or strife
Where man wouldn’t kill anymore
A world of compassion, where passion for life
Would banish the madness of war

I’m close to finding the key to duality
Chemical Formulae which could – and would
Alter the patterns of man’s personality
Guiding him either to evil or good!
Weigh the potential, the great possibilities
Colleagues – dear friends, understand
We have a chance to make history here in our hand

Each of us is the embodiment of two distinct and opposing forces – Good and Evil – each fighting for supremacy inside us. If we could separate these two forces, we could control and ultimately eliminate all evil from mankind. My experiments with animals have led me to believe that the day is not far off when this separation will be possible. To achieve it, I must be allowed to try my formula on a living human being!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
And what if you’re right, Jekyll? And you do manage to separate Good from Evil… what happens to the evil?

[JEKYLL]
There are doomed, broken souls in a thousand asylums
I defy you to say you don’t care if you can
In the name of compassion and medical science
I can save many lives, if you give me one man

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
I tell you now, the Church will never sanction it!

[VARIOUS ]
Sacrilege! Lunacy! Blasphemy! Heresy!

[SIR ARCHIBALD PROOPS]
You seem to be treading on dangerous ground
In legal terms, I’d say – extremely unsound!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
The whole thing’s un-christian, barbaric and odd!
You’re playing with fire when you start to play God!

[STRIDE]
The Bishop speaks for all of us
When he says you’re playing God!
There’s such a thing as ethics
Over which you ride rough-shod!
You’re a Doctor, not a saviour
Doctor Jekyll, for a start!
But I judge from your behaviour
You can’t tell the two apart!

[JEKYLL]
Dear Mr. Stride, I am simply a scientist
I have a code to which I remain true
I don’t presume to the stature of moralist
I leave pretension like that, Sir, to you!

[SIR DANVERS]
Henry, I’ve always encouraged your enterprise
And I’ve been hopeful that you would succeed!
But in the face of these powerful arguments
I see no choice but for you to concede!

[JEKYLL]
I know my fate is yours to choose
But if they win, the world would lose
I am on the brink of great success!
I beg you, Governors, you must say “Yes!”

[LADY BEACONSFIELD]
Doctor Jekyll, enough of this ranting, Sir!
This is a hospital, here to save lives!

[GOVERNORS]
Do you think we would let you play havoc
With all the high principles for which it strives?

Do you expect us to compromise all that we stand for
Indulging your dangerous games?
How many rules should we break for your dubious games?

[JEKYLL]
Can’t you see? I am not playing games!

Just give me the opportunity!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP]
This whole thing’s too bizarre!

[SIR DANVERS]
Open up your eyes and see!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
This man has gone too far!

[JEKYLL]
Unless you listen to me…

[STRIDE]
Doctor, please watch your tone!
Dammit, man, can’t you see?
You’re on your own!

[JEKYLL] (overlapping)
Fools!
You fools!
God damn your rules
Look at yourselves
Civilized men!
Why can’t you see?

[SIR DANVERS](overlapping)
Henry!

[PROOPS] (overlapping)
Jekyll!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE] (overlapping)
Blasphemy!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP] (overlapping)
Mutiny!

[LORD SAVAGE] (overlapping)
Damn me!

[LADY BEACONSFIELD] (overlapping)
Really!

[SIR DANVERS] (overlapping)
Henry!

[GOVERNERS]
(unintelligible yelling)

[STRIDE]
Order! Order!

[JEKYLL (spoken)]
If I ever needed further justification for my experiments, gentlemen, you have just provided it!

[JEKYLL (sung)
Just look at what has happened here!
Mix anger with a touch of fear
The danger’s all too crystal-clear
Just look at you!

Our darker side keeps breaking through
Observe it now – in me and you!
The evil that all men can do
Must be controlled!
I beg of you
I’ll show you all it can be done!

Here is a chance to take charge of our fate
Deep down you must know that tomorrow’s too late
One rule of life we cannot rearrange
The only thing constant is change
The only thing constant… is change

[STRIDE]
Distinguished colleagues, your verdict, please
All those is favour, say “Aye”
All those opposed, “Nay”

[GOVERNORS]
Nay! Nay! Nay! Nay!
Positively, absolutely nay!

[STRIDE]
Sir Danvers?

[SIR DANVERS]
Abstain

[STRIDE (spoken)]
By five votes to none – with one abstention – Proposition 929 is rejected. Thank you for your time, Dr. Jekyll

[SIR DANVERS (spoken)]
I am truly sorry, Henry

[JEKYLL]
All these precious years I’ve dedicated to this dream
Now with a word they claim the power to deny me
Who are they to judge what I am doing?
They know nothing of the endless possibilities I see

It’s ludicrous I’m bound by their decision
Seems vision is a word they’ve never heard!
If it mattered less, I’d treat it with derision It’s absurd!

And yet the fact remains
Those bastards hold the reins!

[STRIDE]
I’m so sorry, Doctor Jekyll
What a really rotten shame!
I so hope that what has happened
Won’t destroy your precious name!

Henry Jekyll, I despise you!
You have stolen the girl who should be my wife!
But there’ll come a day, not so far away
When you’ll not only pay
You will pay all your life!

Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – The Engagement Party lyrics

[SIR DANVERS]
My dear Simon
You’re so gracious
To wish Lisa and Henry both well

[STRIDE]
Dear Sir Danvers
As you know, Sir
I wish Lisa the sun and the moon
But I have to confess that I wish Henry Jekyll in hell!

[UTTERSON]
(spoken) Henry, at last. What could possibly be more important than your own engagement party?

[JEKYLL]
John, I am close to a breakthrough discovery!
Something spectacular, something sublime!
Finally, a light in the darkness has come to me!
Now it is only a matter of time!

[DR HASTIE LANYON]
Henry Jekyll, you’re a devil
You have robbed us of London’s most lovely girl

[MR RICHARD ENFIELD]
I could turn to drink when I stop to think
Lisa’s marrying a doctor instead of an earl

[BOTH]
Poor girl!

[STRIDE ]
Doctor Jekyll, may I be the first to wish
You and your bride-to-be
Peace and prosperity?

[JEKYLL]
Mr. Stride, it’s most civil of you
To say that, as you do
With such patent sincerity!

Jekyll And Hyde The Musical – Take Me As I Am lyrics

[JEKYLL]
Sometimes I see
Past the horizon
Sure of my way
Where I am going
But where’s the prize
I have my eyes on?
Where?
There is just no knowing!

And when despair
Tears me in two
Who can I turn to but you?
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[LISA]
Look in my eyes
Who do you see there?
Someone you know
Or just a stranger?
If you are wise
You will see me there
Love is the only danger

Love meaning me
Love meaning you
We’ll make our one dream come true
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Though fate won’t always do
What we desire
Still we can set
The world on fire!

Give me your hand
Give me your heart

[JEKYLL]
Swear to me we’ll never part
You know who I am

[LISA]
You know who I am

[JEKYLL]
This is who I am

[LISA]
This is who I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Take me as I am

Deep In Virtual Earth – Something Like A Human lyrics

[verse 1]
“Hey there,you wanna live the world through my eyes?
Full of misery,anxiety,and “love” of lies.
I’ll paint it all out,and let you live it.
So watch out,your heart,and your anxiety,they just collide.
Scary,flash backs,just don’t stay gone that long will they?
So you say everyone has abandoned you?”

/so open your mind,and out live the grim.
I’ll stop and say these words to you/…

[chorus1]
You deserve more than such a life.
You deserve someone who’ll treat you right.
You deserve a true friend who’s by your side.
You wanna find that person,cause you don’t feel so human.

[verse 2]
Settle down,settle down,dont say you’ll kill yourself.
Cause you will not become,what you challenge daily in your hell.
Beyond the happiness,craziness,and all those up and down times.
When trouble’s on its way I know you’ll be alright..
Let’s face our lonely days and brokenness.
Tonight I won’t let you forget what it feels like of happiness.

/when no one shows you any love,
You trip right back into your cope.
You stopped and said these words to yourself/.

[chorus 2]
I deserve more than such a life.
I deserve someone who’ll treat me right.
I deserve a true friend who’s by my side.
I cant find that person,to love me as myself.

[verse 3]
“Now why’d you get scared and run away?
Was it my life,that too much to handle?
You’re not feeling what im feeling.
Lately I’ve been caught in all my emotions.
It makes me want to drown myself inside of an ocean.
So did i let you down? did i let you down now?
Is it why you haven’t been around?”

“am i too much? Is it too much?
No one sticks around long enough.
Cause I hope that you still want to know me”.

[chorus 3]
And they’ll say:
“you deserve more than such a life.
If I’m that someone who’ll treat you right.
You have a true friend who’ll stay by your side.
I dont want anyone else,i want you cause you’re perfect to me”.

We deserve more than such a beautiful life.
I know I’ll find that person who’ll treat me right.
You’ll finally find a true friend who’s by your side.
I know you’ll find that person,they’ll love you with everything.
Everything of you.

You will always be human to me
