01. INTROVERTED

Always hide my face and hide what I feel

Introverted life,  inside I know what is real 

But you came into my world took away my fear

I took my time for reflection I wanna know that you're sincere

 

Always hide my face and hide what I feel

Introverted life,  inside my soul is hard as steel

Then you walked into my world with no prejudice inside

I took my time for reflection 'cause I didn't wanna hear no lies

 

You crawl inside my world and let me in your mind

Watch me with your and analyse me blind

I nestle under your wings and leave the past behind

Cut the strings and tie me down and lift me to a higher ground

 

Always hide my face and hide what I feel

Introverted life,  inside I know what is real

Always hide my face and hide what I feel

Introverted life, my sould is one thing you can't steal

 

I feel so high when I touch your sky

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice, Lemmy Kilmister

02. MY WORST ENEMY

More and more each day

More than I can say

Alone in the darkness of my memories, headless crawling ' round and 'round

Swayin' in the storm of possibilities, while I'm hangin' on the gallow upside down

 

Bad habits keep comin' back 

Couldn't hit a haystack it's a hard nut to crack

Bad habits keep comin' back

So I'm tryin' hard to quit them, defense is attack

 

HELL DOWN BELOW IN THE TWILIGHTZONE

IT WON'T TAKE LONG 'TIL I'M CHILLED TO THE BONE

PAIN & AGONY FUCKED UP INSANITY

WHAT A SICK SOCIETY BUT I AM MY WORST ENEMY

 

Every dog has its day but there must be a better way

Got my packs of golden gleam to spend the night beyond my dreams

Hell on wheels, my lips are sealed, I'm leavin' an emotional battlefield

Ain't so much of a worthy affair, one step up and back down the stairs

Spoonfull, mouthful, over the top

Ain't a daughter of the gods but down with dogs

 

HELL DOWN BELOW IN THE TWILIGHTZONE

IT WON'T TAKE LONG 'TIL I'M CHILLED TO THE BONE

PAIN & AGONY FUCKED UP INSANITY

WHAT A SICK SOCIETY BUT I AM MY WORST ENEMY

 

Shadows of yesterday, they don't ever seem to fade away

With all the wisdom, away with kingdom

So many ways in but only one way out

Only one way out

 

Bust up in the hot city blues

Powdered nose and a hole in my shoe

Frog in the throat, rockin' the boat

Like a monkey through the traffic on a nowhere road

 

Bad habits keep comin' back

Couldn't hit a haystack it's a hard nut to crack

Bad habits keep comin' back

Well I'm trying hard to quit them, defense is attack

 

HELL DOWN BELOW IN THE TWILIGHTZONE

IT WON'T TAKE LONG 'TIL I'M CHILLED TO THE BONE

PAIN & AGONY FUCKED UP INSANITY

WHAT A SICK SOCIETY BUT I AM MY WORST ENEMY

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

03. NO SOLUTION

Don't deny my honesty 'cause I will be your destiny
Wouldn't be here if I lie, don't destroy my dignity
Getting sick of your acerbity, your accusation's eye
No energy or sympathy, you bore me like your tie
Violent hands on me, violent hands on me

Innocent, raped, sent to hell, you'll never guess how far
Deeply wounded, close to death, stolen face in a stolen car
Can't forget some people's answer, the family effect
Brought along some misunderstandings, plus: I got no respect!

NOT A LOT OPPORTUNITIES AT THE POINT OF DEATH
DISSOCIATED PERSONALITIES, A THORN IN MY FLESH
SUFFOCATE, ISOLATE, OBLITERATE, NO SOLUTION
VINDICATE, CASTIGATE, STRANGULATE, NO ESCAPE

Don't deny my honesty it's concrete on the rosery
Wouldn't be here if I lie, don't destroy my dignity
Getting sick of your acerbity, your accusation's eye
No energy or sympathy, you bore me like your tie

NOT A LOT OPPORTUNITIES AT THE POINT OF DEATH
DISSOCIATED PERSONALITIES, A THORN IN MY FLESH
SUFFOCATE, ISOLATE, OBLITERATE, NO SOLUTION
VINDICATE, CASTIGATE, STRANGULATE, NO ESCAPE


Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice, Lemmy Kilmister

04. TRICK OR TREAT

Yeah I am not brave to kill myself

I'm scared of that special moment

Look at me and ask yourself 

I doubt you're independent

 

TRICK OR TREAT

KICK OR BLEED

I AM YOUR SISTER

I AM WHAT YOU NEED

 

There ain't no love around us, no presents, not for free

I know life ain't always easy, open eyes don't always see

 

Keep an eye on them

The ones who cause the pain

I am innocent but I want to breathe again

A risk I have to take

Make my own mistakes

 

I'm so tired of hearing lies

Every religion wants a sacrifice

What if I die? Only hypocrites would cry

Well mandacious temptation is a dreadful consummation

 

I'd try to walk upon the water

I'd fly upon the seven seas

 

TRICK OR TREAT

KICK OR BLEED

I AM YOUR SISTER

I AM WHAT YOU NEED

 

Filled up with strange desire

But I learned to cool it down

Got me something to get higher

I know the place in every town

 

I'm no prostitue 

Accept no substitute

But still got lust in me and I want to set it free

A risk I have to take

A face I have to make

 

I'm so tired of hearing lies of liars who take away my pride

What if I die? Only hypocrites would cry

What a selfish occupation, it's a deadly consultation

 

Highs and lows

 

TRICK OR TREAT

KICK OR BLEED

I AM YOUR SISTER

I AM WHAT YOU NEED

 

You don't know who I am

Tell me why do you give a damn

 

TRICK OR TREAT

KICK OR BLEED

I AM YOUR SISTER

AND I AM WORLD UNIQUE!

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice, Lemmy Kilmister

05. METAMORPHOSIS

You're not the only one  4x

You're not the only one under the bloody sun  2x

 

Another generation, different confrontation

Weird desperation or is it designation

Horny stimulation, sex on tessellated pavement

This ain't calm fiction, just a greedy hunt

 

THE UNDESERVED IS PARAMOUNT

WE LIE IN DISARRAY

A FACE BEHIND MY SHOULDER SHINES

A FACE THAT IS NOT YOURS OR MINE

A FACE THAT IS NOT OVERKIND

AND WHEN I TURN MY HEAD I FIND

THAT FACE HAS COME TO STAY

 

You're not the only one under the bloody sun  2x

 

Try to enjoy your life

Escape the fear of destiny

Drape the mortal frame in light

Shape my thoughts around a mystery

If I sinned forgive me, all my faults as well

Cause this ain't a perfect world

Neither am I

 

THE UNDESERVED IS PARAMOUNT

WE LIE IN DISARRAY

A FACE BEHIND MY SHOULDER SHINES

A FACE THAT IS NOT YOURS OR MINE

A FACE THAT IS NOT OVER KIND

AND WHEN I TURN MY HEAD I FIND

THAT FACE HAS COME TO STAY

 

Colorful desire, dreams of a yellow nightingale

Metamorphosis

He's a merman from the midlands

And I'm a robin, a robin in his hands

 

Don't touch that dial, cause it's mine, mine, mine

I built it up, I worked so hard

I'll freeze my blood to heal my heart

Don't walk away  4x

 

At the horizon where all is dark sits a man who's old and gray

When he speaks his echo barks

He's holy people say

 

Colorful desire, dreams of a yellow nightingale

Metamorphosis, now I'm a butterfly

 

He's a merman from the midlands

And I'm a robin, a robin in his hands

 

You're not the only one under the bloody sun  2x

 

I ain't a stupid bitch

And I ain't love sick

You better make a switch

Before I'll hit you with a brick

 

Something has changed, don't know exactly what

But it burns like fire, somehow I gotta stop

Can't deal with the emotions and the way it used to be

Once I was so blinded but now I start to see

 

Woke up in the morning as if there was no night

If wishes were horses beggars would ride

Power of origin, strength incomprehensible

The cryouts increase, rise, swell, uprise

 

For you I was the fool

For you I was the fool

For you I was the fool

Ahhhahhhahhaahhhh

 

Colorful desire, dreams of a yellow nightingale

Now I'm a butterfly

For you I was the fool 4x

 

No escape no flee

They're always inside of me

I'm a prisoner of laughter

I'm a prisoner of laughter

 

The cause of your thoughts  4x

 

Look at the deep C. through it all

Both, saviour and hangmen

Guffaws of eternity

The blind endures swallowed words

So now you tune in to the quire of eternity

Eternity

Eternity

Eternity

Endless C...

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice, Jogy Rautenberg / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice, Lemmy Kilmister

06. REVOLUTION OF ILLUSION

Skeleton crew, skip-skap doodle doo

Devils smiles back on you, Dr. Hooks medicine show

 

In good company with pure delight

Lunatic paradise, eatin' stewed peas and rice

 

I've met Jesus himself in the valley of the shadow of death

Have seen Cleopatra eatin' chicken paprika

 

Mao's daughter sleeps in here

Mona Lisa cries in fear

God bless them, all they want

To live and let live you gotta understand

 

REVOLUTION OF ILLUSION

REVOLUTION OF ILLUSION

 

This what we miss heat up in the spoon

Love turned to dust, now it's powder from the moon

 

There's a hole in the sky where the rockets rush through

So they'll bring us the stuff which is missing between me and you

 

The essence of life in a plastic cup

Escaping and hiding, I wonder if we could stop

 

Mao's daughter sleeps in here

Mona Lisa cries in fear

God bless them, all they want

To live and let live you gotta understand

 

REVOLUTION OF ILLUSION

REVOLUTION OF ILLUSION

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

 

07. ITS ALRIGHT 

Reach my hand up to the sky

Hope one day you will return

Talkin' to myself, I know you won't

But will I ever learn

 

You know I'll always feel for you

Doesn't matter where I am

Whatever you say or do

You'll always be my friend

 

IT'S ALRIGHT

IF LOVING YOU FELT SO RIGHT

 

Say good bye to what has died

You can't return and never will

Tomorrow will come without you

And I will stand upon the hill

 

I will pray for you at night

Hoping god treats you alright

The wheel of life goes on and on

Without you nothing looks the same

It ain't the same

 

IT'S ALRIGHT

IF LOVING YOU FELT SO RIGHT

IT'S ALRIGHT

IF LOVING YOU FELT SO RIGHT

 

My mind is playin' tricks on me

Your face in the crowd is all I see

Can't believe you took the chance

Only twenty-one and killed by romance

Are you happy with what you got

I know you always gave as good as you got

Home was the place where you wanted to be

Now your soul is ment to be free

 

IT'S ALRIGHT

IF LOVING YOU FELT SO RIGHT

IT'S ALRIGHT

AS LONG AS LOVING YOU FELT SO RIGHT

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

08. LIQUID BRAIN

Climb the mountains of foreign land

Tears of Allah fall in the sand

Heaven above us, fools all around

No one can stop us from touching the ground

 

DIP MY BRAIN INTO THE WATER

LIQUID EYES LOOK TO THE SKY

HEAVEN SHOWS I'M DEVILS DAUGHTER

MAMA EARTH THIS AIN'T NO LIE

 

I AIN'T NO PSYCHO AIN'T NO LIAR

WHO AM I WITH THIS DESIRE

GIVE ME BROWN, GIVE ME DOWN

I AM THE QUEEN WITHOUT A CROWN

 

Night time comes, I'm in white heat

Sweat' is runnin', this will make me bleed

My rooms on fire, this dream is real

Everything I am is what I feel

Oh yeah

 

Thoughts and feelings, all mixed up

Heart is bleeding, will it stop

Call it bad luck, call it fate

Creations of visions

The mean man incarnates

 

DIP MY BRAIN INTO THE WATER

LIQUID EYES LOOK TO THE SKY

HEAVEN SHOWS I'M DEVILS DAUGHTER

MAMA EARTH THIS AIN'T NO LIE

 

I AIN'T NO PSYCHO AIN'T NO LIAR

WHO AM I WITH THIS DESIRE

GIVE ME BROWN, GIVE ME DOWN

I AM THE QUEEN WITHOUT A CROWN

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

09. INVISIBLE RETREAT 

Paralized needle eyes, why do you stare at me

Turn to stone, leave me alone with your misery

Reality seems to fade away, spinning in that vicious mind

Darkness will surround your day

It ain't paradise that you'll find

Hollow inside

 

IF YOU DON'T MIND I'LL DISAPPEAR

AN INVISIBLE RETREAT

LOST BEHIND THE SHADE OF MY EYES

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

 

And in the end we realize we watched the world go by

Walked in danger, so terrified

Take what we get and in the end we die

 

Hear the sound of the devil's voice, an echo from behind

Down on the ground, wrecked my brain

Bloodsucker tooth in the vein

I don't care if you disagree or hate me 'til the end of time

Just can't watch you drown in the sea

That would be a crime

Hollow inside

 

IF YOU DON'T MIND I'LL DISAPPEAR

AN INVISIBLE RETREAT

LOST BEHIND THE SHADE OF MY EYES

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

 

It's time to make a change

It's time to rearrange

It's time to break free of this misery

 

And in the end we realize we've been too naive

Tortured and threatened, killed by lies

Friends turn out to be enemies

 

IF YOU DON'T MIND I'LL DISAPPEAR

AN INVISIBLE RETREAT

LOST BEHIND THE SHADE OF MY EYES

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

CAUSE THE REASONS ARE SO CHEAP

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice, Jogy Rautenberg / Lyrics: Nina C. Alicena C. Alice

10. COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

It's hard work to live easy

Sometimes it seems to be unreachable

But I try to face tomorrow

Another time, another place

 

Here we are talking again

Didn't get far and didn't get it quite right

Will it change, is there an end

Fight the fear, made up my mind because I'm stucked in here

 

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

 

Devastation as soon you've walked away

Never justified the reasons why

But I love 'til my dying day

Nature speaks in symbols and signs

In symbols and signs

 

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

 

Still think about you, remember every word

The touch of hands in moments of lust

Oh it killed me when you pushed the sword

And broke the spell of endless trust

Of endless trust

 

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

 

Here we are at the depth of our broken minds

Who knows the answers of all the things

Let me fix your wings

Let me fix your wings

 

I tried to forget you and push you away

There's no turnin' back you've made me play your way

Your fatal appeal leaves its trace in my mind

Attraction's your law and the reason I'm blind

Make me believe, make me believe

I'm dreaming away, I'm dreaming away

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice, Jogy Rautenberg / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

11. LOWSIDE GHETTO

Born and raised into the low side ghetto

Made to learn to run away or fight

Travellin' through high class city for the first time

Got to see that something's not quite right

 

Coming back home into the dark

Rats deserting a sinking ship

Hitch the wagon to a star

Watch the water under the bridge

 

NO ONE EVER RECOGNIZE

NO ONE WANTS TO KNOW

NO ONE EVER REALIZE

NO ONE WANTS TO SHOW

 

Rich and poor, winners and losers

Black and white, saints and sinners

Power, weakness, wrong or right

It's all the bloody same when there ain't no light

 

NO ONE EVER RECOGNIZE

NO ONE WANTS TO KNOW

NO ONE EVER REALIZE

NO ONE WANTS TO SHOW

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

12. BLOODY HIERARCHY 

We are the creatures they don't wanna show

We are the broken ones they don't wanna know

We are the forgotten ones in so many ways

They set the price, we're built to pay

 

We are the fools eatin' the dirt in their ground

We explore life, stick to what we've found

We believe in our own religion and we believe in you

 

Did the ever think that we might not care

First they wanted us, now they wouldn't dare

Hellish rules, no this game ain't fair

But we're living with this

 

BLOODY HIERARCHY

YOU KNOW IT'S STUPIDITY

 

We are the fools in a broken world

We are lost children, unable to speak a word

Born into this life, never had a chance to choose it

And no chance to defend

 

We are tired of hearing all the excuses

Built up a vision of how it might should be

Denied and disrespected, poor and dejected

Now we're alive, so we gotta right to be

 

Did the ever think that we might not care

First they wanted us, now they wouldn't dare

Hellish rules, no this game ain't fair

But we're living with this

 

BLOODY HIERARCHY

YOU KNOW IT'S STUPIDITY

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

13. DREAMS OF BLACK

Tell me when the fight is over

Tell me when you think it's done

Cause I can't listen to your promises

Before you know what you want

I will be gone

 

People run around with problems

Individual mentality

You can hate them or believe in them

But never change their personal reality

 

Who's got the key to open up the door of liberty

Or do you ignore

 

I KNOW BETTER THAN THOU

WHO LIVES BEHIND MY EYES

AND I PICK OUT MYSELF WHO'S STANDING AT MY SIDE

YOU SEEM TO BE SURE YOU GOT TO GIMME YOUR DAMN ADVICE

BUT I'M NOT GONNA LISTEN TO YOUR LIES

 

So many times I wonder why

People doubt me but always stare at me

Too many men getting stronger to believe in things they only want to see

Fates in my hand or am I still talking to my wall

Do you understand, or smile when I fall

 

I KNOW BETTER THAN THOU

WHO LIVES BEHIND MY EYES

AND I PICK OUT MYSELF WHO'S STANDING AT MY SIDE

YOU SEEM TO BE SURE YOU`VE GOT TO GIMME YOUR DAMN ADVICE

BUT I'M NOT GONNA LISTEN TO YOUR LIES

 

Music: Jim Voxx, Nina C. Alice / Lyrics: Nina C. Alice

14. YOUNG MAN

Oh well a young man ain't got nothing in the world these days

I said a young man ain't got nothing in the world these days

Well you know in the old days when a young man was a strong man

All the people they stepped back when a young man walked by

 

But you know nowadays it's the old man who's got all the money

And the young man ain't got nothing in the world these days

I say they got nothing, nothing

 

Everybody everybody

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

In the old days everybody stepped back

When a young man walked, walked by

They stepped back

They stepped back

They stepped back

 

Nothing has got a young man

They ain't got nothing in the world these days

I say they got sweet

That's all
