Mirrors and shade

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

The grin on my face ties me over the days without you

I stay out of trouble while I'm seeing double

It makes me scream inside


All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)

All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)


Life's smell's an intrusion

Raised and doped with illusion

Download god

I know I'm in trouble when I'm seeing double

Come on, make me scream


All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)

All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)


All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)

All this pain just keeps on growing

In my mind: mirrors and shade (mirrors and shade)


Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Oh, mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade


Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Mirrors and shade

Still

(Words & 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

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 - oh

Well, the rest is, the rest is, the rest is

All I can really do now is cry

Well, the rest is, the rest is


The rest is still, still – there's nothing

Still, still – there's nothing

Still, still – there's nothing

Still, still – there's nothing

You could

(Words & Music by Ike Moriz)

I'm on the way to the surface just

To drown in you in your eyes of grey

How come I know all about you?

Since we never met a sharp glance ago


I dreamed you into my life

Past the crowd in the void

Into my life - Ah-ooh


You are the sea

You are the sun

You are the only one

You are the sea

You are the sun

You are the only one


I'm lost in the rain

It's always the same (same, same, same)

Oh, it's such a shame

Nothing and no one to blame


We're lost in the rain

It's always the same (same, same, same)

Playing the game and nil and no one to blame

Oh-uh-oh


You are the sea

You are the sun

You are the only one

You are the sea

You are the sun

You are the only one


You could thrill me

You could kiss me

You could kill me

You could miss me


(You could thrill me) We're lost in the rain (You could kiss me)

(You could kill me) It's always the same (You could miss me)


(You could thrill me) You could be you (You could kiss me)

I could be I (You could kill me)

You could be you (You could miss me)


Oh, you could be you (You could thrill me)

I could be I (You could kiss me)

You could be you (You could kill me)

(You could miss me)


(You could thrill me), oh boy

(You could miss me), oh boy

(You could kill me), mmm (You could miss me)

(You could thrill me), mmm (You could kiss me)

(You could kill me)

(You could miss me)

Oh, boy, oh, boy

Another Day

(Words and music by Ike Moriz)

Dust swirls in the breeze, pink rays lick concrete,

Cold smells crawl out the tunnels: It’s the beginning of another day, another day.


Oh, I know it’s not real, I just know what I feel

Oh, I know it’s not real, I just know what I feel


Sucking up another volume of this blood red poetry.

Well, my lies keep on fading dried out in the sticky rain.


Like a crushed piece of flesh on the boiling motorway;

No beginning - like the end, the great, grand end with your face in the sand.


Oh, I know it’s not real, I just know what I feel

Oh, I know it’s not real, I just know what I feel

Fall into the sun

(Words and music by Ike Moriz)

I see the light

At the centre of this cosmic flight

Oh, since you've been gone

It's been hysterical fun


I feel the sun

Golden beams on the tip of my tongue

Oh, smashing through concrete walls

Pulled by shrill siren calls


Fall into the sun

Fall into the sun

Oh, be one

Oh, be gone

Fall into the sun

Fall into the sun

Oh, be one

Oh, be gone


Avalon

Beyond the borders of this beauty salon

Oh, that's where I'll go

That's where I'll glow

That's where I'll live

Live my show

Oh, oh, oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh


Fall into the sun

Fall into the sun

Oh, be one

Oh, be gone


Oh, that's where I'll go

That's where I'll glow

That's where I'll live

Live my show

Oh, oh, oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh


Fall into the sun

Fall into the sun

Oh, be one

Oh, be gone

Fall into the sun

Fall into the sun

Oh, be one

Oh, be gone

Flame Blue

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

My tragic dove calls again

Under the milky starless sky

You burn our tie

Fake a cry

And then fly away

Oh, burn me


Your flaming tongue strikes again

Like the insect's deadly flight

Into the light

Bright, holy white

I crave your kissing bite

Oh, fool me


Fool me – burn me flame-blue, oh-uh-oh

Fool me – burn me flame-blue, oh-uh-oh


How did we cross this raging stream of time?

Oh, well, it couldn't have been our love

Our dying dove

Falling from above

And drowning in the waves

Oh, take me, too


Fool me – burn me flame-blue, oh-uh-oh

Fool me – burn me flame-blue, oh-uh-oh


Your razor lips

They slide over my face

Your breath burns my flesh

Your claws tear out my ribs

And still I crave for more

And still I crave for more

And still I crave for more

And still I crave for more

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

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

Our Gold

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

Digging deep in noble ashes

Like the solemn faced clown prepares his shows

No glimmering rainbow at the end of the tunnel

But pale tongues

Too numb to moan


A hotbed of extinct cravings

Acid hunger in their dead bones

Fame beast – worn out, worn well

Last but not least we'll break the spell


There can't be no more repetition

There won't be no more repetition

And I say: No, no, no, no - no, no


This second is ours

This time is our gold

This second is ours

This time is our gold

It's ours, our gold


In sleepless sweaty nights their skin smells of dead cells

The stars shiver in their beds, too fond of their grandeur


Sisyphus cracked the rock and built himself a big, big castle

Now he runs up and down the stairs

Longing to be blessed with pain again


This second is ours

This time is our gold

This second is ours

This time is our gold

This second is ours

This time is our gold

This second is ours

This time is our gold

This second is ours

This time is our gold (La, la, la,la, la, la,la, la, la)

This second is ours

This time is our gold (La, la, la,la, la, la,la, la, la)

It's ours, our gold

Fake fatale

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

It's been raining milk and fish today

Gizmo powers are at work

Feel so subtle all a glow today

Give me space to settle down


Drift in circles – all makes sense today

The shadows in the maze are doors


Beyond all this cliché flows the soul

Beyond all this fear is pure joy


Don't fake anymore - (ah-ah) don't take anymore

Don't fake anymore - (ah-ah) don't take anymore


(Ooh) It will come to you from the sea

In colors vague and frowned

(Ooh) Or it will hit you in the traffic fumes

Drowned in the London sound


Beyond all this noise flows the soul

Beyond all this fear is you and I


Don't fake anymore - (ah-ah) don't take anymore

There's too much at stake this time - ah-ah

There's too much you could break this time

There's too much at stake this time - ah-ah

There's too much you would break this time

Visionary

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

Uncertain of what's happening to me

Same day, same play

I see you shiver in the wind

Catch your thoughts, seal my mind


Visionary breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought

Visionary breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought


The sun is burning on my face

Blisters come, blisters go

I hold your head within my hands

Close my eyes, close your eyes


I feel the heat is pulling me

To places where I cannot see

I'm dreaming all my life away in one day


Visionary breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought

Visionary – oh-uh-oh - breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought


Visionary breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought

Visionary – oh-uh-oh - breaking down

Walls of ice and stone and time and thought

Visionary

Drowning (In London Town)

(Words & music by Ike Moriz)

In London Town the sky Is brown

It makes me dizzy

I look at you, you're skinny too

We're gonna faint now

In London Town we shake around as if on fire

Time rushes by

Some blur memories then we fly

I cannot stand the rain


I feel the same as you do now

Drowning in the rain

I feel the same as you do now

Drowning in the rain


You take the pill that makes you ill

'Cause you love falling

In London Town they shot the clown

Whose jokes were funny

Time rushes by

Some blur memories then we fly

I cannot stand the rain


I feel the same as you do now

Drowning in the rain

I feel the same as you do now

Drowning in the rain
