Lyrics: "...Feed Your Head"

1. "NOTHING YOU CAN DO" - P. Ferry/J. Swanson (4:13)

Open up your ears & your eyes my friends
Think about the depths of your lies and then
Maybe you could, make the transformation inside yourself
Be that person, that person that you wanted to be
In the summertime, when your riding on that tide
The ocean opens up inside,
revealing everything she hides
And sometimes, sometimes, I fight for what is mine
No reason in a rhyme, now can you help me

(Chorus)
There's nothing you can do or say
That will change my mind about you
It's so hard to live without, girl
Nothing you can do or say
I could try, buy then I'll find
Only pieces of my broken mind

Welcome to my purple haze,
She left, I'm gone, We Separate
She moved into a different state
Without the means to hesitate
I left that psychedelic world
Now the ocean is my girl
She pleases me in every way
We light the flame, to ease the pain
You've had these feeling before
You've lost all control
It turned out so wrong my friend
With selfishness in control
You think about yourself, you think about yourself

(Chorus) repeat

You've had these feelings before
You've lost all control
It turned out so wrong my friend
With selfishness in control
You think about yourself
You think about yourself
In the summertime, when your riding on that tide
The ocean opens up inside
Revealing everything she hides
And sometimes, sometimes
I fight for what is mine,
No reason in a rhyme, now can you help me

(Chorus) repeat

2. “I STAND ALONE" P. Ferry/B. Kult (4:24)

You're starting to realize, this world you live in
It could be a dream
Fight you way through all the loneliness
And lack of self-esteem
Brings you to a place, inside your life
You must stand up and fight
Fight for freedom you believe in,
whether it be wrong or right

(Chorus)
I stand alone, for all the times I know, I did you wrong
When are we really ever going to find
A place that we can call our own

You think you found it out
But the answers never found
When your lying to yourself
You think you found it out
But your just a waste of time
And your never going to change

To change your life, it's really not that hard
To recognize the problems in your life
That hold you back from reaching stars, moons
Comets in the galaxy, your mind will float away
To the day, when she left without a single word to say
Yes she's always on my mind
In the morning, noon, or evening,
she's the thought that gets me high
And I try, I try to be the man I am today
To love her like no other, is the feelings I display
I be the person that could make her life right
No cry she's lying in my arms tonight
We'll find a love no one can understand
The dream is over now, alone is where I stand

(Chorus) repeat

I, I, yes I stand, yes I stand alone
I, I, yes I stand, yes I stand alone
I, I, yes I stand, yes I stand alone
I stand alone

3. “THE PROBLEM" P. Ferry/(4:30)

It's creeping up inside
That feeling that you get when you know you’re in denial
In denial from the truth
You got to step up, step up
To the problems of root
Way down below, underneath all the earth
Make your mistakes, with no judgement of worth
the time has come for you to listen to your self, you better
Step up, step up, to the problem at hand
Follow your instincts as quick as you can
I know your scared, I know your all alone
Seasons of change only come when you grow

(Chorus)
You better watch what your doing
Lord knows there's going to be trouble brewing
Not just with your life, but with my life
As you can plainly see
The problem isn't you, it's with me
And I know it's time to change things
The problem isn't you, it's with me, it's with me
I need someone to talk to
Some that will listen to the problems that we're going through
Doesn't matter, anyone will do
Just let me shed my skin, and I'll crawl into the new
Wait all your life than your given the chance
Never look back, cause your journey could pass
The time has come for you to listen to yourself, you better

Step up, step up, to the problem at hand
Follow your instincts as quick as you can
I know your scared, I know your all alone
Seasons of change only come when you grow

(Chorus)
You better watch what your doing
Lord knows there's going to be some trouble brewing
Not just with your life, but with my life
As you can plainly see
The problem isn't you, it's with me
And I know it's time to change things
The problem isn't you, it's with me, it's with me

You better watch what your doing
Lord knows there's going to be some trouble brewing
Not just with your life, but with my life
As you can plainly see

Never knew what love was, until she came into my life
Never could quite clearly tell the wrong against the right
She smothers me with kisses, and I slowly drift away
Into her arms, yea

04. “SIMPATICO"- P. Ferry/J. Swanson (3:30)

You thought the girl would make it
Then you found out she was faking
She'll never hold you down, she'll never hold you down
She'll never hold you down again, then
When you finally think it's over, then
She whispers in your ear, she says
Give me love, love.... Give me love, love
Give me love, love... Give me love, loving

You work so hard for nothing, it's the dream that gets you through
Your body feels old and tired,
then she tells you things to do
Relationships, they rarely work out, when you argue, fuss, and fight
When she leaves to find another, you know she'll be gone all night
To find comfort in anthers arms, if only one night it will do
Yes she's running all over town, telling lies that are untrue

You thought the girl would make it
Then you found out she was faking
She'll never hold you down, she'll never hold you down
She'll never hold you down again

Here's a question, will she sink or will she swim
Here's a lesson, from the goddess at the bottom of the ocean
She points in directions, navigating souls who are lost through deception
Babylon calls, but I'm not ready yet
Learn to live my life with no regret
And tomorrow, tomorrow could turn out to be
The painted pictures in my dreams
Music through my veins, and in my blood stream
Hard to kick a habit, when you won't come clean
Don't follow, don't follow in the footsteps of anyone
But your self, here I come

You thought the girl would make it
Then you find out she was faking
She'll never hold you down, she'll never hold you down
She'll never hold you down again
Spin me round, round and round, 'till I never come down
When you finally think it's over
Then she whispers in your ear, she says
Give me love, love.... Give me love, love
Give me love, love... Give me love, loving

5. "PRINCE OF POWER"-P. Ferry/B. Kult (4:55) -
-additional vocals: Fawaz Alotwi

We climb to the top of the mountain
Search for wisdom that we need to find
Only to find at the top of the mountain
Wisdom that come from the devil's eye
He tempted me with an illusion
Anything wanted that money could buy
Yes, then the devil he asked for my blessing
In which, I turned back to him and replied

(Chorus)
You, You'll never get me
No, no, no, you'll never find out
Find what the meaning of love
You, you know it's over
Oh, no, no but the devil
Yes he's watching over all your souls tonight

We walk through the desert of blindness
Search for water, but nothing to fine
Knowing our journey is sent from the highest
Struggle to breathe, in the storm of the blind
We live for the day of redemption
Fight this war for the creature of pride
Pointing your finger and blaming the other
Only your conscience and jury the crime

(Chorus)
You, you'll never get me
No, no, no you'll never find out
Find what the meaning of love you
You, you know it's over
Oh, no, no but the devil
Yes he's watching over all your souls tonight

He's watching over your souls tonight
He's watching over your souls tonight
Tonight, tonight,
Tonight, tonight
Watching over your souls
