Mind Mutilation

Original and similar lyrics
A teardrop falls down from eyelash The abusion has begun Say, is this the way YOU love me? All my might is gone... If your eyes are blind, I'll tell you I am one of the human race Don't you see that wounds of violence Slowly leave their trace? Help? From neighbours? No chance: they ignore Don't dare to discover A little boy must suffer Listen... You're scum since your day of birth! - Hammered in his head - Receiver of second-hand emotions Degraded in slow motion It's an unforgivable crime What they're doing to their child Did you ever hear about the right to live? Did you ever see: You are dangerously sick? And you never learned Controlling your frustrations Exit: Mind Mutilation Listen... After hours of heaviest violence A little body had no chance An explosion of brutality Is the sad reality Can't you see, your child is dead? To the most around they seemed to be A family in harmony One point others couldn't see: They're stricken by brutality... Help? From neighbours? No chance: they ignore Don't dare to discover A little boy must suffer

Pearl

JOSHUA KADISON "Delilah Blue"
There was a Pearl at the bottom of the sea. He was a diver like you and me from a little village built on the sand where the people had nothing but faith in the Lord's hand. In the far-away near, the Pearl was always there, floating like a dream or like a storm in the air... and the Pearl grew bigger on the people's despair. When the divers went to dive they prayed the same sad prayer. "Oh, God, help me find it this time. When I hold it to the light, how the Pearl will shine." Early one morning, fates changed everything, Zandro's baby boy felt the scorpion's sting. The town doctor just sent them away, "Poor people like you got no money to pay." In Maya's arms, her baby just cried, while Zandro heard the Pearl's song pounding louder inside. Into his boat he put his wife and child and paddled out into the ocean wild. "Oh, God, help me find it this time. When I hold it to the light, how the Pearl will shine. Help me Lord, help me Lord, help me Lord, help me." When he held it to the light the great Pearl did shine. Evil on evil, sin on sin... the whole town's hunger started closin in. The priest came from the churchyard to show his deep concern. The doctor came to visit, now there was money to be earned. His child got better despite the doctor's pills whose plan it was to fake him sick, then pretend to heal his ills. And Maya said, "Let's throw this pearl back to sea. I do believe it's wicked, it'll curse our family." Oh, God, Zandro couldn't see the sign. When he held it to the light the Great Pearl did shine. Shimmering, glistening, glimmering, glowing. When he held it to the light, the Great Pearl did shine. With knives they came to steal his precious prize. Zandro killed beneath the starless sky. With blood-stains on his hands they had to flee, but some crushed his boat, so they couldn't go by sea. They fled into the mountains by moonlight. Three hunters close behind them through the night. Then high up on a rocky mountain side, Zandro found a cave for his family to hide. He spied the hunters camp and wainted 'til they slept. With his knife strapped to his back, down the rocks he crept. Silently for hours, 'til he was almost there, then just before Zandro planned to leap into the air, high up on the mountain his child made a sound. A gun went off, the song of eveil echoed all around. Oh, Zandro killed the hunters but it was all to late. One bullet in the darkness sealed his child's fate. Maya took her baby down to the sea with Zandro by her side, not beleiving such a thing could be... that his child would never waken fro his sleep. Then Zandro threw the Pearl with all his might and gave it back to the deep. There was a Pearl at the bottom of the sea. He was a diver like you and me...

Misconseptions

Ace Troubleshooter
Day after day after day you live in your misconceptions Cause our actions don't speak as loud as our words it hurts, my friend Can I help you understand? Can I please help you understand? It's not bred out of fear, it's sprung out of love It's what we've been in search of Now spring clear of all the lies And sever all the ties with tangled webs of futile thinking Now spring clear of all half-truths Cuz the burden of proof doesn't rest on an institution Yeah I can see all the hurt and the misery resulting From the fact that Christians are the biggest sinners of them all But please don't fal Don't let all who come in Christ's name fool you Don't you dare, oh don't you dare It's not bred out of pride, a trophy on the shelf I can't save you, I can't even save myself If while we've been on our knees our eyes have been closed To all the pain and suffering I cry out God forgive us!

All I Want Is You

CARLY SIMON "Coming Around Again"
(Carly SImon/Jacob Brackman/Andy Goldmark) What do the neighbours say When they hear us scream at night Do they talk about a love All in tatters What do the neighbours know About the heart and soul The fire down below That really matters They can never guess In the silences That all I want is you And the sexy hurricane We got here All I want is you I don't want a man To say 'good morning dear' Let 'em listen at the door Let 'em listen through the floor Let 'em go ahead and draw the wrong conclusion So chase me 'round the room Make me crazy like the moon They can never guess In the silences That all I want is you And the sexy hurricane that we share All I want is you I don't want a man Who tiptoes up the stairs All I want is you And the freight train Whistling over my track All I want is you And your Mack truck loving Jumping me Jack! Oh, Jack!

For A Child

Michael Mcdonald "Blink Of An Eye"
(Michael McDonald) Love is the answer to a child Just as hope is the answer to us all But it's there at the beginning That we learn to hope at all And god help us if we don't [Chorus:] Tell me where is this place From which there's no return What can we know of another road From the one that we made With our anger and our rage We dare not go where there is no hope Not even for a child If dreams fly over the rainbow Truth lies waiting for us all If siren's voices cloud our reason Can we still resist their call 'cause god help us if we don't [Chorus] For so many people livin' their whole lives Waiting to be saved For so many chilren taking that short trip From the cradle to the grave

Walking With A Ghost

KADEBOSTANY "Pop Collection"
I'm just walking with a ghost And he's walking by my side My soul is dancing on my cheek I don't know where the exit is Every day is still the same And I don't know what to do I'm carrying my tears in a plastic bag And it's the only thing I got from you I have short hair And I'm faced with a few complications So, so if you care Try to analyse the situation You know, man As the leaves fall on the ground My soul is goin' Round and round and round So please, do it well Just break the spell Why don't you do it right? I don't want another fight I'm not creatin' My flow with my ego I'm taking off my hood And I'm entering deeply in the wood You know, man Bugs are my only food And it puts me in a strange mood I ain't giving you my heart On a silver plate Why couldn't we be just mates? Oh no, never come back to me Oh no, never come back to me I wish I could be a child, write me another dance, another chance, another romance We could just be friends I wish I could be a child, write me another dance, another chance, another romance It could be the end
