Lyrics

Spotlit my silhouette
Timeless motion, pirouette
Future sold, my foolish kind
Bound, blind, my stupid mind

And it's all colliding, exploding brain
Why you laughing, at my shame
And its all colliding, exploding brain
Why you laughing, at my name

Vivid dream, my nightmare's power
Brain ache, second, minute, hour by hour
Distant souls are stalking me
Begging for some sympathy

And it's all colliding, exploding brain
Still you laughing, at my shame
And it's all colliding, exploding brain
Still you laughing, at my name

Floating high on violet cloud
Air smells sweet, my time allowed
Surreal thoughts, begin to play
No escapist games today, today...

And it's all colliding, exploding brain
Stop you laughing, at my shame
And it's all colliding, exploding brain
Stop you laughing, at my name

Voices whisper, "on the game"
So laid back, broken name
Time to get a new proposal
Put myself at its disposal

And it's all colliding, exploding brain
No more laughing, at my shame
And it's all colliding, exploding brain
No more laughing, at my name

My name, wo-oo-ooh
Too much, too much, she sold her
I feel the world, the world, the world
Wo-oo on my shoulder
Hot past feels colder
I wish I'd told her, told her, told her
My name
Wo-oo-ooh

No more colliding, exploding brain
No more laughing, at my shame
No more colliding, exploding brain
No more laughing, at my name

Oxygen

Key: Dm

 

Lyrics

Ice Cubes barman, large shot of gin
Can't see where I'm going; don't like where I've been
Slice of lemon, plenty of tonic please
Courage from the Dutch numbs painful memories

Line after line, light up worries away
Flesh the comfort keeps nightmares at bay
Prostitute myself; avoid the winning game
Left feeling dirty, dirty hands insane

Water, water, breathe y' oxygen
Need your love; need your freedom
Water, water, breathe y' oxygen
Need your love; need your freedom

My poison tasted bitter sweet
Took it anyway, its conscious defeat
Sold my soul for the sake of a thrill
Left behind for that poison pill

New Life Story

Key: Bm

 

Lyrics

In life's winding journey
May be obstacles you can't see
I can see them everywhere
Trust me don't despair

When you feel in death's dark vale
Know that I will prevail
I will protect you
That's what I'm here to do

Where you go; I'm around you
Take my hand; I can carry you
Where you go; I'm there with you
Where you stand; always there with you
Yeah

A new life story
Look ahead to the glory
Futures here; it's clear to see
You are dear to me

Where you go; I'm around you
Take my hand; I can carry you
Where you go; I'm there with you
Where you stand; always there with you
Yeah

Where you go
Take my hand
Where you go
Where you stand

Take my hand
Take my hand
Yeah, yeah, yeah

G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A,
G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A

Take my hand
I'm alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah

G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A,
G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A
