Track Name: Body Talk
Bring him, bring him, bring him, bring him
Bring him, bring him, bring him, bring him
Bring him, bring him, bring him, bring him back
Bring him, bring him, bring him, bring him back

I can't stand it, told him we could do it all again
We can't believe, thieves and bandits
Just standing there there empty handed or what we thought

Sidewalks up and down, watch ‘em turn around
Ooh ooh stop and read their body talk body talk
Witness through the screen, heard they made a scene
Hear our voices ringing out don't run don't walk

Bring em back, need em back, bring em back to me
One time one time one time one time
Yes I know, yes I know, he can never be
All mine all mine all mine all mine
Take the pictures from my sleep cause they always look the same
Lift them up from off their knees show them back to where they came
Shook the ground beneath my feet felt the sound run through my veins
When I heard all of their voices heard ‘em calling out your name
One time, one time

Shame and slander, bring ‘em up go and call them out again
We can seem so highhanded, then talk about reprimanding
For what it means
Sidewalks
Ooh ooh stop and read their body talk body talk
Witness through the screen, heard they made a scene
Hear our voices ringing out

Bring em back, need em back, bring em back to me
One time one time one time one time
Yes I know, yes I know, he can never be
All mine all mine all mine all mine
Take the pictures from my sleep cause they always look the same
Lift them up from off their knees show them back to where they came
Shook the ground beneath my feet felt the sound run through my veins
When I heard all of their voices heard ‘em calling out your name
One time, one time

Bring him, bring him, bring him, bring him
Bring him, bring him, back bring him, bring him
Track Name: Temptation
All of the lights shining over everything that they do
Out in the night, a place for anything that they wanted to
Out here where we can let go, let it go, let it go never so
Needlessly sentimental. let it go

Never coming down never coming back to belong to you,
uh oh don't need to know your rules
Never take the time, take the time you needed me to
uh oh I'll never no no
Electric lights will shine through
Don't need more confirmation
I want to love like they do
Lead us into temptation

Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't

Through english eyes, I can pick apart what I had believed
Smoke in the fire, let's see everything we wanted to see
Out here where we can let go, let it go, let it go never so
Needlessly sentimental. let it go

Never coming down never coming back to belong to you,
uh oh don't need to know your rules
Never take the time, take the time you needed me to
uh oh I'll never no no
Electric lights will shine through
Don't need more confirmation
I want to love like they do
Lead us into temptation
Electric lights will shine through
Don't need more confirmation
I want to love like they do
Lead us into temptation

Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't
Don't stop can't have enough don't
Track Name: Barbarians
Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
Ba barbarians

Beware the natives, the roots and the leaves,
Talking about wages and ordinary things
We are the savages, we are the scarred,
We are the seraphim, burn it all
Pound it to pulp, pound it to paste,
Pound at the snare strapped to your waist.
Scream shout bang it out again

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, Bang your drum,
Ba barbarians

White shirts, do as they please
Is this the time, who to believe
We're not alone, throwing stones at the moon,
We are the stars counting down at you.
Got it all wrong, they're finished, they're done,
No they were not the righteous ones.
Scream shout bang it out again

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, bang your drum,
Ba barbarians

(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Bang your drum
(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Barbarians
(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Bang your drum
(Stand up stand up) Everybody

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, bang your drum,
Ba barbarians
Track Name: If You Say So
Real love, Say it so
I’m going out of my head, and outta control
To make it so, my love my love my love
Will you whisper those
Same words just so I’ll be ready to go oh
It’s not impossible, to love to love to love

Come a closer, don’t be shy, speak your mind
Tell me what you’re thinking, don’t be shy, we’ll make it right

If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so
If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so

Real love c’mon and say it so
It’s not like I’m afraid to be alone
So just say it so, my love my love my love
Every story that you tell
Know them better than you know yourself
But you say it just so, to love to love to love

(Chorus)
If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so
If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so

I want you to come along (If you say so)
Don’t stay till everyone’s gone (If you say so)
But I will wait all night long (If you say so)

Ooh oh oh oh oh oh oh, Ooh oh oh oh oh oh oh

If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so
If you say so, give it up, give it up, like it’s easy
If you say so, live it up, live it up, It ain’t easy
To let go, but I can let go, if you say so

Say it isn’t so, say it isn’t over
Say it isn’t so, say it isn’t so
Say it isn’t so, say it isn’t over
Say it isn’t so, say it isn’t so
Track Name: Helium
Still not enough, he needs more stimulation
He’s burning up, with fear and fascination
Don’t tell him what to do just let him show you
He’ll show you what to do the way he wants to
So fast and loud, his kind of entertainment,
He’s inside out and he won’t try to tame it
With a shout with a bang. It makes me
Turn it out now it makes me crazy

All that we do, is what we do, and what we do is what we do cause we want to, we want to
We want to feel what makes them feel, they like to feel the way they feel cause they want to, they want to (to tell me)

How do you do, these things you do
I want you, to to
I want you, to to show me
Why do you do, these things you do
I want you, to to
I want you, to to show me

Run through my head colors rushing out
With all my friends and we loved the sound of
(Helium) and we loved the sound of
(Helium) and we loved the sound of
Here ‘till the end and we’re looking down
With all my friends and we loved the sound of
(Helium) and we loved the sound of
(Helium) and we loved the sound of

It started out, in his imagination
For everyone, and every inclination
One hundred names one hundred faces,
Remember him when he was famous

All that we do, is what we do, and what we do is what we do cause we want to, we want to
We want to feel what makes them feel, they like to feel the way they feel cause they want to, they want to (to tell me)

How do you do, these things you do
I want you, to to
I want you, to to show me
Why do you do, these things you do

Run through my head colors rushing out

Track Name: My Life
Down below the skyline
Crowded blocks tiny rooms n dusty shelves
Found me at the wrong time
Wasted days then they crowned me the jezebel
Can’t believe what they heard
Like a song to a bird
Played all over the world
Heard them singing

We can live the good life
Give them all the love below
Dancing in the limelight
Everywhere that we go
Waded through the hard times
Shake it up n drink it all
We can live the good life
Every every day now

I can live my life my life my life my life
Turn it turn it turn it turnin it loose
We can live our lives our lives our lives our lives
Do it do it do it do like we do

My life my life my life
My life my life my life my life

Down the road for so long
Count if off and we'll show them what we've found
Everything that they want
Heard the news now they're always turning out

Playing up to the crowd
Keeping up with the count
Got em coming around
Oh they're singing

We can live the good life
Give them all the love below
Dancing in the limelight
Everywhere that we go
Waded through the hard times
Shake it up n drink it all
We can live the good life
Every every day now

I can live my life my life my life my life
Turn it turn it turn it turnin it loose
We can live our lives our lives our lives our lives
Do it do it do it do like we do

Whatever we want to, whatever we could do
Whatever they’re onto, wherever we go
We’re keeping it our space, we’re singing it our way
We’re playing the good days, cause now that we know

My life my life my life
My life my life my life my life
My life my life my life
My life my life my life my life

Track Name: Cabaret
There was a cabaret just off of Avenue A
Where you'd get anything you want if you knew what to say

Like a hey hey we came out for the big soiree
Every month on the first and third saturday

Pay the man upstairs to hear the music play
Join the night parade and put it on display

No plans to go uptown or around broadway
We'd just meet up in the back at the cabaret
