‘ALL AROUND THE WORLD' - 2008

WHEREOF ONE CANNOT SPEAK

(Words and Music by Jim Barnes)

 

THE WORLD IS ALL THAT IS THE CASE

THE WORLD'S MADE UP OF FACTS NOT THINGS

TO KEEP THE THOUGHTFUL IN THE PLACE

WITH ALL THE PROBLEMS READING TOO MUCH SARTRE BRINGS


WHEREOF ONE CANNOT SPEAK OR SIGN INSTEAD

WHEREOF ONE CANNOT SPEAK MUST BE LEFT UNSAID.


I SAID IT ONCE SO I REPEAT MYSELF

I DON'T CONSIDER THAT I'M FIT TO LIVE

AND EVEN THEN YOU'RE ALL MORE WORTHLESS THEN

MY SADEST WHIM WHICH IS MY ONLY PERSPECTIVE


WHEREOF ONE CANNOT SPEAK OR SIGN INSTEAD

WHEREOF ONE CANNOT SPEAK MUST BE LEFT UNSAID.


HE SCREWS YOU UP IMMANUEL KANT

MAY NOT HAVE MEANT TO BUT INDEED HE DID

WITH ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT HE NEVER HAD

NOW ADD SOME MORE OF WHICH YOU CAN'T BE RID

All Your Heroes Are Dead

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


Oceans of time passing through space,

Beings and things – come & slip away.

Like tears in a stream drift into the sea,

No shape, no soul – faint memories of dreams.


Rain keeps on falling, rain keep on falling down…


ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes Are dead.


He’s been waiting so long out here in space:

Almost forgot what he came out here for.

She has stared at the stars all of these years:

It has left her blind – blind to his tears.


I won’t keep falling, I won’t keep falling for you…


ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE,

ALL Your heroes Are dead.


NOW ALL YOUR heroes Have GONE,

ALL Your heroes are GONE,

ALL YOUR heroes Have GONE, ALL YOUR heroes are dead,

ALL YOUR heroes are GONE, ALL YOUR heroes are GONE,

ALL Your heroes HAVe GONE, ALL YOUR heroes are dead.

Anything You Want

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


You crumble down, cling to your crown &

all that glitters just makes you so blue.

You’re tumbling down filled with the sound

of this life you hung on to so tight.

You’re dropping out, turning ‘round,

while the end is just one step  away.

Expect to see your life to be your fantasy and it makes you  so blind.


Now you can see: We know nothing with certainty,

Just you and me, let it go, let it be. Let it go, let it be.


AND WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!

YEAH, IF WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!

AND YOU COULD CHOOSE ANYTHING YOU WANTED (WANTED) TO!

YEAH, WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!


I’m going down in the 7th round

of this fight that I thought was  just a joke.

I’m coming down to the ground

from this ‘high’ that I thought was  a ‘low’.

I have found I couldn’t count the times I thought

that I was right when I  was wrong.

Expect to see your life to be your fantasy and it makes you so blind.


I’ve come to see: We know nothing with certainty,

Just you and me, let it go, let it be. Let it go, let it be.


AND WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!

YEAH, IF WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!

AND YOU COULD CHOOSE ANYTHING YOU WANTED (WANTED) TO!

YEAH, WE COULD DO ANYTHING WE WANTED (WANTED) TO!

Oh, ANYTHING YOU WANT – YEAH, ANYTHING YOU WANT

Oh, ANYTHING YOU WANT – YEAH, ANYTHING YOU WANT

Bite the dog

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


He’s barking in the streets all night - he’s ready for a fight tonight.

Sunny’s with him on the run - his friend Sunny is a gun.


There’s a twinkle in his eyes - he’s gonna shoot down all those lies.

He’s seen it all on T.V. - that’s how it’s gonna be!


THE CREEPS ARE ON THE STREETS - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU

THE CREEPS ARE RUNNING FREE - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU


Howling’ in his dreams all night - she’s ready for a bite tonight.

Only anxious of the sun - till dawn she’ll have him on the run.


Boiling his blood, frying his brain - waking up he is half insane.

He’s seen it all on T.V. – that’s how it’s gonna be!


THE CREEPS ARE ON THE SCREEN - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU

THE CREEPS ARE YOU & ME - WE’RE GONNA BITE YOU


BITE THE DOG! BITE THE DOG!


BITE THE DOG! BITE THE DOG! BITE THE DOG! BITE THE DOG!


THE CREEPS ARE ON THE STREETS - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU

THE CREEPS ARE RUNNING FREE - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU

THE CREEPS ARE ON THE SCREEN - THEY’RE GONNA BITE YOU

THE CREEPS ARE YOU & ME - WE’RE GONNA BITE YOU

All Around the World

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


We travel all around the world –

trying so hard just to find a place to start.

We travel all around the world –

only to find that place right here back at the start.


AND even though we know WE’RE IN NO SHAPE to go!

Let’s go all around the world - all around the world

AND even though we know we got no place to go!

Let’s go all around the world - all around the world)


I travelled all around the world –

trying so hard just to fill this gap in my heart.

I travelled all around the world –

only to find: you were in my heart right from start!


AND even though WE KNOW…


We travel all around the world –

trying so hard just to find the cash to buy happiness.

We travel all around the world –

just to find: shiny sparkling emptiness.


You travel all around the world –

trying so hard to outrun all this fear.

You travel all around the world –

just to find:  To be able to run you gotta learn how to walk

with these demons inside. With these demons inside!

With these demons inside! With these demons inside!


AND even though we know …


Let’s go all around the world - all around the world) x3

Peace dream

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


When the last few cheetahs lay rotting in the mud

I have a peace dream

When the last piece of jungle is integrated

into an economy program

I have a peace dream

When the last African tribe starts singinG the American anthem

I have a peace dream; I have a peace dream


When we build a shopping centre on top of Table Mountain

I have a peace dream

When we’re tAught to follow blindly and believe

I have a peace dream

When the whole world is ‘civilized’

I have a peace dream

I have a peace dream


WE CUT OFF ALL THE ENERGY

STAY CONNECTED

WE CUT OFF ALL THE ENERGY

STAY CONNECTED


You and I, we drift upon the river:

The place where we come from


WE CUT OFF ALL THE ENERGY

STAY CONNECTED

WE CUT OFF ALL THE ENERGY

STAY CONNECTED

ALWAYS YOU (SAMSARA)

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


Thought I’d pretend I didn’t see familiar markings on your shoulder.

Skin softer than the evening breeze. All I needed was to hold her.

While I touched your angel cheek the eastern wind grew cold and colder.

Your kisses in the shadowy lane melted my soul (I should have told her).


That’s when it hit me out of the blue: the icy wind, your kisses too!

Every lifetime like a DÉJÀ VU: ‘cause there was always, always YOU!

Now that the sun’s behind the moon, could it finally come true?

Or will we drift apart again, always so close, then start again.


The total eclipse of the sun, it scares me so, I want to run.

Yet something tells me to wait this time. You’re still here.

All might just be fine. When I turn to face the growing light,

my mind can’t grasp this peculiar sight:

Scared & bewildered - there you stand,

a bloody dagger in your hand.


Rivers of red form in the sand, I cannot move, I don’t understand.

Ancient letters begin to appear, written in blood with love and fear.

Long forgotten, the time we first met, but together to repay the old debt.

I feel so cold, my vision blurs, please hold me now and break this curse.


SAMSARA – IN EVERY LIFE THERE’S ALWAYS YOU,

SAMSARA – ALWAYS YOU! ALWAYS YOU!

ALWAYS YOU! ALWAYS YOU! ALWAYS YOU! 



I’ll be your man

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


While I observe this human zoo,

I have to pose just like they do.

Shiver in their beds at night;

how much longer till wrong feels right?

Injecting fear in our minds –

keeps them in power at all times.

They’ll do what they can to make you feel small –

no excuse for us to crawl!!


I don't have the answers, I only have questions.

But as long as I can, I'll be your man.


Please open up your heart to me - Please open up your heart


Countries, borders, anthems and flags -

keep us apart: those ancient gags.

All their speeches, adverts and hymns -

to feed their greed and keep us dim.

Call me insane, call me brave,

but I won't slave for the pharaoh's grave.

I’d rather dance my life away,

for this could be our final day.


I don't have the answers, I only have questions.

But as long as I can, I'll be your man.


Please open up your heart to me - Please open up your heart


Rain falling up, smoke rising down,

against the tide, always ready to drown.

Sometimes I find the gate to heaven:

in the midst of chaos & burning hell.

That's when 1 & 1 makes 11,

survive together: the story to tell.

See an endless ocean in your eyes,

lift off the ground – free of all ties.


I don't have the answers, I only have questions.

But as long as I can, I'll be your man.


Please open up your heart to me -

Please open up your heart … and I will –

I will be yours -  I’ll be your man, I will be yours

Watching the Sun

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


Why are you so afraid of getting close

While this flaming southern wind blows again?

I don’t wanna cause you any pain, I just wanna love you,

I just wanna love you.

Please don’t kill me! I have been killed too many times!


Over and over and over again: It seems impossible;

keep believing it’s possible to hold you again.

So much to give, so much to live, so tired of forever, so tired.


Just be with me, watching the sun come down,

watching the sun, watching the sun.


Station to station, ocean to ocean: Chasing phantoms in the mist.

Every time I catch a glimpse of you, I can hardly breathe,

Stupid happy in love; I watch your fading taillight!

Why, won’t you be with me, when you feel what I feel,

when you feel what I feel...?


Over and over and over again:

it’s just impossible: believing it’s possible; why are you so afraid?

So much to give, so much to live, so tired of forever, so tired.


Watching the sun - Watching the sun...

Killing games

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


So soft, in the summer - in the pouring rain:

Her kisses drowned - in delightful pain.

So far away now - since the snow began to fall.

Forgotten, that this - was never meant to happen at all.

Pre ch): This is our last dance! This is our last dance!


OH, YOU & I - PLAYING KILLING GAMES.

OH, YOU & I - TILL WE FORGET OUR NAMES.

YOU & I - PLAYING KILLING GAMES.

OH, YOU & I - TILL WE FORGET OUR NAMES.


I saw her dance - in the parking lot:

A crazed face - all she got now.

In cold blood - she took him down.

Always - and never: She only wants it all!


Limousines and pearls - she wants to rule the world.

Assassins in the brain - the white light leaves no stain.

Money in his hand - waiting for the man,

Who’ll steal his soul away.

This is our last dance! This is our last dance!


OH, YOU & I - PLAYING KILLING GAMES.

OH, YOU & I - TILL WE FORGET OUR NAMES.

Oh, oh-uh-oh-oh-uh-oh-oh

This is our last dance! This is our last dance!

This is our last dance! This is our last!

Starry Night

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


I heard this song on the radio, Your smile drifted through my mind –

tonight, I saw a star breaking through the clouds –

Oblivious to its light – just like you


Oh, starry night – tonight – and then …

You and I – so bright – and then…

Fall in love – tonight – and then …


EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AND THEN…

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AND THEN…

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AGAIN


The sounds in town are steps in the snow:

Walking on the moon – all is white.

City of hope and city of gold:

Home wherever you are!


I made you … – you made me … Cry stardust into our lives.


Oh, starry night – tonight – and then …

You and I – so bright – and then …Fall in love – tonight – and then …

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AGAIN

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AND THEN…

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AGAIN


Oh, starry night – tonight – and then …

You and I – so bright – and then …

Fall in love – tonight – and then …

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AND THEN…

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AND THEN…

EV’RYTHING’S ALL RIGHT – ALL RIGHT AGAIN

Still

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


All these days that I strive so hard to calm the waves

Of the oceans and seas with the palm of my hand


Every day like a lifetime – oh, save me a piece, a piece of the cake

Past, just like a haze – trying all so hard to cling to fake


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.


A sunny autumn day – drifting on the heath, nothing to say

The cars on the shore sing in the breeze,

Rushing all so fast to pay the lease


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.


Open my mind’s eye and see the coat that you wore on the day

When you made me laugh like no one ever could before!


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.

All I can really do now is laugh - The rest is, the rest is, the rest is

All I can really do now is cry - The rest is, the rest is,

the rest is STILL, STILL – THERE’S NOTHING...
