B3 - 2012

B3
I refuse to remain in regret
To pander like a slave to your wants
No contrition from me will you get
No submission to dilettantes

I've existed too long in secrets
I have lived like a man confined
Epicene and elaborate
Fatalistic and resigned

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Now I vein in the scene of sunsets
And the rain washes clean my mind
Every one of my needs will be met
Every planet will be aligned

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Over power all my fear
Now to power
Guide me through the realm

I refuse to remain in regret
I refuse to be left behind

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

I Know You Want To Stop

I know you want to stop
There is no return from this point on
Be glad for what you got
Maybe you won't take too long to burn

I recognize the smile
There are some things I cannot forget
It may be for a while
I'll pretend that we have never met
We have never met
We have never met

And maybe we will part
Will your paranoia keep you warm
I'll eat it from your heart
I will still enjoy to watch you fall
The crowd starts to row,
We take off our clothes and roll around
Boredom takes its toll
It shall be your eyes that let you down
Eyes that let you down
Eyes that let you down

You're still
You're still
You're still
Still...

I know you want to stop
I know you want to stop
Stop

I.K.W.Y.L.
Hey you in your ivory tower
I know where you live
Hey you with so much power
I know where you live
Been in bed with the government
With you it's take, take, and no give
The CEO of the decadent
I know where you live

(I know where you live)
Deep of the heart of man
With the devil's common friend

Hey you with the dynamite
I know where you live
You with your righteous and holy fight
I know where you live
With all the orphans you create
I don't think your maker will forgive
What do you ask for when you pray?
How do you sleep when you're so vindictive?

(I know where you live)
Deep in the heart of man
With the devil's common friend
(I know where you live)
Deep in the heart of man
With the devil's common friend

Time Is Money
Time
Time is money, bastard
And hope
Is all that you can steal
And time
Is happy ever after
With Jesus, Jesus,
Jesus, Jesus at the wheel

And you are so beautiful
That I would drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

War
War is money, bastard
Cos fear
Keeps knocking at your door
But war
Is spreading like a cancer
With Jesus, Jesus
Jesus marching on before

And you are so beautiful
That I will drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

Love
Claims to have the answer
To all
Your troubles every day
Love
Love is money, bastard
So like Jesus, Jesus,
Jesus, give it all away

And you are so beautiful
That I will drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill

The Extra
I try every day
To think of something deep to say
Cos I would like to find the words
That deserve to be heard

Sounds like words are out of style
Silence beckons down the murder mile
I keep on talking to the hand
In a language I don't understand

If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Then who the hell is the director?
If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Will someone please turn off the camera?

And show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

I try every night
Not to argue, not to fuss and fight
But there's a riot in my head
Streets are bleeding and democracy is dead

Let's fight until the end of days
Let's destroy and let's devastate
We keep on talking to the hand
In a language we don't understand

If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Then who the hell is the director?
If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Will someone please turn off the camera?

And show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
(I am an extra in the film of my own life)
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
(I am an extra in the film of my own life)
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

I try every day
To think of something deep to say
