Track Name: Personal Hollywood
Want you to lie and tell me it’s alright
Give me the right for just one night
For me to say that I’ve had it good
My own personal Hollywood

Dress me up or dress me down
Up town or down town
Don’t care about the neighbourhood
In my own personal Hollywood

Please lie to me
string me a line, I’ll be fine
I will be set free
for a time, for a time

Don’t burst my bubble or piss on my fire
Gotta believe I can go higher
Take my denial, don’t spill my blood
In my own personal Hollywood
Take my denial, don’t spill my blood
It’s my Hollywood
Take my denial, don’t spill my blood
It’s my Hollywood

Please lie to me
string me a line, I’ll be fine
I will be set free
for a time, for a time

People say go be yourself
But what if I don’t know myself
does that mean I can be
anyone that I wanna be
Track Name: Snow White
Just because there’s smile on your face
Doesn’t mean it’s fine
Something leaves a bitter after taste
honey I’m not blind
I see what your about
But I don’t mean to be unkind
I’ll still indulge your every wish
Is that such a crime

But when you groove you move me so
I can’t let you go
The place is pumping, gonna go with the flow
Scratching lines on my soul

Party til the mirrorball falls
These beats are breaking down walls
Party ’til the mirrorball falls
Tonight I give you it all

Snow white on the dance floor
A blinding flash of light
Super Nova in my brain
burning so bright
Blocking out the outside world
My eyes are shut so tight
Just because it feels so good
Doesn’t make it right

But when you groove you move me so
I can’t let you go
The place is pumping, gonna go with the flow
Scratching lines on my soul

Party til the mirrorball falls
These beats are breaking down walls
Party ’til the mirrorball falls
Tonight I give you it all
Tonight I give you it all
Tonight I give you it all
Tonight I give you it all

Tonight I give you it all
Track Name: Dance Little Stranger
Educated
Medicated
This city drives me down
In a dream of possibilities

In consecrated
Cerebrally vibrated
Turn me on to the sound
Can you hear it all around

Dance Little Stranger
Like an angel across the sky
Dance little stranger
In the blinking … of my minds eye

Intoxicated
These streets are liberated
Walking round in the city of light
Neon culture burning bright

Dance Little Stranger
Like an angel across the sky
Dance little stranger
In the blinking … of my minds eye

Dance Little Stranger
Dance Little Stranger
Track Name: Velcro
I like vecro on the ceiling
I like vecro on the floor
I like vecro on my mattress
And I ain’t gonna work no more

Silence the alarms
And I’ll embrace the dark
Silence the alarms
So I can hear your heart

I’ve got wires that start fires
And I ain’t gonna let you run
Plug in to your cortex
This bass line will make you come…on down

I want Velcro in my life
So I can stick to you
I want Velcro in my life
So I can stick to you
Track Name: Just Enough Self Loathing To Get By
You think you know all about me
You think you’ve sussed me out

You don’t know what I’m feeling
You don’t know who I am

You say I’m an open book
Or maybe a cheap magazine

You don’t know what I’m feeling
You don’t know who I am

You don’t know where I go
To hide inside my mind
It’s such a comforting sadness
Why don’t you leave me alone

You don’t see me shouting at the sky

You think you can pull my strings
And you’re probably right

You don’t know what I’m feeling
You don’t know who I am

I’ll be your dog, I’ll be your bitch
I won’t put up a fight

You don’t know what I’m feeling
You don’t know who I am

You don’t know where I go
to hide inside my mind
It’s such a comforting sadness
Why don’t you leave me alone

You don’t see me shouting at the sky
Track Name: Same Different
Heavy metal kid on a train to nowhere
Cowboy boots, regulation flares
Wanna be different, look so cool
Try so hard to look just like you

See the world through rock star eyes
In my dreams I reach for the sky
Don’t bother me with reality
Cause I can fly…

On the hippy bus with a head full of ideals
Tie dye shirt, spliff rolling degree
Gonna change the world, if it gets my girl
Things aren’t what they seem in my dreadlock world

See the world through rock star eyes
In my dreams I reach for the sky
Don’t bother me with reality
Cause I can fly…


Sonic assasin, come to raise the dead
Give me one chance to get inside your head
Here to inspire, just light my fire
Free your mind…higher and higher

Free Your Mind
Higher and Higher
Track Name: Love Drone
It’s time the moment seizes us
Read the signs, feel the rush
Hang on tight, close your eyes
For this Rollercoaster ride

You think you can resist
Loves bitter twist
It starts with a kiss
Yeah, loves bitter twist

Love drone baby
Love drone baby

Think fast, think slow
Oh oh oh oh oh
There’s only one thought that lives in this glow
Oh oh oh oh oh

You think you can resist
Loves bitter twist
It starts with a kiss
Yeah, loves bitter twist

Love drone baby
Love drone baby

Repeat the lines get what you love
Repeat the lines get what you love
Repeat the lies get what you love
Sacrifice yourself for love

You think you can resist
Loves bitter twist
It starts with a kiss
Yeah, loves bitter twist

Love drone baby
Love drone baby
Track Name: Get It In Your Head
Why don’t you get it in your head
I do
Why don’t you get it in your head
That I want you
Why don’t you get it in your head
It’s true

Unravel in the desert of my desire
Move closer to the flame
If you want to catch fire…
There’s nothing like the touch of your skin
Close my eyes feel you sinking in….

Why don’t you get it in your head
I do
Why don’t you get it in your head
That I love you
Why don’t you get it in your head
It’s true

Echos of what you said
Human baggage of this emotional train wreck
Marbles are rolling around my head
Why can’t you just get it …. Into…..your head

Why don’t you get it in your head
I do
Why don’t you get it in your head
That I need you
Why don’t you get it in your head
It’s true

Why don’t you get it in your head
Why don’t you get it in your head
Why don’t you get it in your head
Track Name: Dreams Of The Karate Kid
Wanna replay every moment
That way there’ll be no regrets
All those things that I should have told you
They’re on repeat in my head

Just the daydreams, Of the the Karate Kid

I don’t forget the times I was pushed around
Didn’t want to cause a scene
The replay was something Tarantino
Last man standing in my minds movie scene

Just the daydreams, Of the the Karate Kid

Regrets – Replay and Redo
Regrets – Replay and Redo

This time I’m gonna get it right
Say and do the right things
Don’t want no rewind button
Not gonna dwell on what might have been

Don’t want the dreams, Of the the Karate Kid
I don’t want the dreams, Of the the Karate Kid

I don’t want the dreams, Of the the Karate Kid
Track Name: ReThink
What you gonna do when the bombs come down
What you do as the seconds tick down
Who you gonna call when there’s no one around
You better hope the operator gives a damn

What you gonna do when the power goes out
Who you gonna hold in the dead of night
Whose got your back in your dreams
This ain’t no glossy magazine

Who you gonna be when the sun goes down
Live with yourself brother, stand your ground
Rise up and be counted spread love around
Just one life man, use both hands

Who you gonna be when the sun goes down
Live with yourself brother, stand your ground
Rise up and be counted spread love around
Just one life man, use both hands

What you gonna do when the bombs come down
What you do as the seconds tick down
Who you gonna call when there’s no one around
You better hope the operator gives a damn

What you gonna do when the bombs come down
What you gonna do when the bombs come down
What you gonna do when the bombs come down
What you gonna do when the bombs come down
Track Name: Happy Place
Won’t you find the time to fill my space
If you want to come to my happy place
Take this moment, it’s filled with love
Don’t wait for clouds to hide the heavens above

Your heart next to mine, Let’s combine
Open the wine, today is just fine
Your heart next to mine, Now is the time……

Don’t give me destinations, give what’s between
And all that the journey might have been
Don’t know if I’m happy, don’t know if I’m sad
But somewhere in between is no man’s land

Your heart next to mine, Let’s combine
Open the wine, today is just fine
Your heart next to mine, Now is the time……

Won’t you find the time to fill my space
I’ll invite you to my happy place
I’ll invite you
I’ll invite you
I’ll invite you

Your heart next to mine, Let’s combine
Open the wine, today is just fine
Your heart next to mine, Now is the time……

Now is the time…….Now is the time…
In my Happy Place
Track Name: My Penny Lane
Want to be with you night and day
Want you to be my Penny Lane
Wear my heart on both sleeves it’s true
But I just want to be with you

I’ll keep you grounded when you’re high
I’ll pick you up when you’re low
Even though you dance to your own beat
I just want you to know…..

I love the idea of you
I should stay clear of you
I love…. so why don’t you

Float like an angel through the crowd
Everyone turns when you’re around
Lighten a room with your smile
But who are you when the lights go out

I love the idea of you
I should stay clear of you
I love…. so why don’t you

You, you make me feel alive….
Yeah you, you make feel alive …
You, you make me feel alive
Yeah you, you make me feel alive…

Don’t even know your real name
Not sure you do to
guess that might ruin the dream
Just who is kidding who

I love the idea of you
I should stay clear of you
I love…. so why don’t you

I Love the idea of you
Track Name: She Said
She said would you like to use me
I said that’s a funny way to put it, but …yes
she said ‘don’t confuse me’
I just looked at her…and said

You gotta put it simple baby
So I can understand
You don’t need words baby
Just show me the promised land

Boy meets girl under silvery moon
Isn’t that how it goes?
This ain’t no rom-com film
We all gotta pay in the end

You gotta put it simple baby
So I can understand
You don’t need words baby
Just show me the promised land

She said don’t mess with my head
I don’t know what you’ve said
I see all the colours as long as they red
And this world’s only as big as my bed

Scatch my skin, you can come right in
It’s all free for you baby
Howlin’ at the moon
All the way til dawn
All the way til dawn all the way til dawn all the way til dawn
Track Name: Will You Miss Me
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Two times the hurt, two times the wrong
These feelings weigh 16 tons
Will you miss me when I’m gone

2am thoughts turn to this song
There’s an aching in my soul
It’s 4am and I’m done
And I long for the rising sun

I want you to be with me ’til the morning light
I need you to stay
I long to look in your eyes and see your smile
Break through this haze

Need to shake out these blues
Can you hear me now?
I guess it’s time to choose
Whether to burn or fade to grey

I want to get back to where I belong
My Favourite place in the world
How long have I been gone?
Think it’s time to come home

I want you to be with me ’til the morning light
I need you to stay
I long to look in your eyes and see your smile
Break through this haze

I want you to be with me ’til the morning light
I need you to stay
I long to look in your eyes and see your smile
Break through this haze


Will you miss me when I’m gone
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Will you miss me when I’m gone
Track Name: Up
Baby, the only way is up, only up
there’s no climbing down
Don’t touch the ground, yeah
Keep on coming, on up
Don’t look back, ‘cause we’re on this track
Up….Up

Come on baby, Let’s get lazy
Learn to waste our time
Whilst we’re in our prime
Lazy
There’s no lock, there’s no key
Baby you’re set free
Crazy

Baby, lets get up, up
I do solemnly state
I will elevate….up
Get on this train
to a higher plane
Up

There’s no turning back
Ride this smoke stack
There’s no turning back
There’s no turning back
Oh
