I Am Shades Of Life

Original and similar lyrics
I am black I am white I am all skins inbetween I am young I am old I am a change that has been I am scrawny I am wellfit I am starving for attention I am famous I am criptic I am hardly worth a mention I am short I am height I am any frame or statue I am smart I am challenged I am striving for a future (Chorus) The color of the sky is blues and greys The color of the earth is greens and browns The color of hope is rainbows and purple And the color of peace is people together (Shades of life...) People together (Shades of life...) (I am...) I am able I am weak I am some strength I am none I am deep I am thought I am often said than done I am born I am died I am dust of humble roots I embraced I have pain I am able of real fruits (??) I am slain I am free I am bonded to my life I am rich I am poor I have wealth of real strive (Chorus) I am shallow I am glory I am hiding from my shame I am here while I lose While I'm yearning for a name I am empty I am proud I am seeking my tomorrow I am growing I am fading I will hope I make this sorrow (boy speaking) I am certain I am doubtful I am desperate for solution I am leaving (?) I am student I am fate, and evolution (Billy, singing) I am spirit I am voice I am memory not recalled I am chance I am cause I have never thought and walked I am him I am heard I have reason without right I am past I am hearing I am present at all times I am many I am no one I am season by each being I am me I am you I am all sorts now degreeing... (Chorus) People together... (I am...) (Shades of life...) (Fade)

Give My Life

Army Of Lovers
Chorus: I give my life Give my life give my life Give my life to be in the book of love Give my life give my life Give my life to gods above When I go when I go when I go Come see my spirit fly Give my life give my life The night I'm sacrified (Repeat chorus) There's a wizard who Pampers the virgins He's collecting a portion of blood There's a blizzard when Browning the valley Take the virgins away By the flood On a mountain the wizard perfecting He's collecting An ancient perfume Every tear every Drop of the essence Breaking hearts In the temple of doom Chorus (2*) There's a castle The height of construction There's a pipeline Directing the stream In a chamber a lizard extracting To the godess A potion of dreams At the top of the stair Hail the axman And the angels The peak of the scene Pass the virgins on Army Of Lovers Looking grand on A video screen Chorus(2*) The night I'm sacrified Chorus Give my life give my life The night I'm sacrified
