Robotic Love

Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017

I was drifting in the darkness 
a ship without a sail 
lost in the endless sea
searching for a reason
no starry sky to guide my way
no reason to be

I searched the heavens
and the oceans deep
silence & my solitude so loud
I couldn't sleep
then I listened to the whispering wind
A beacon in the storm beckoning to see

Seeing in the dark alone among the stars
the stars are shining bright

As the sun comes up I can see your face
a face begun to rust in the light of day
this robotic love kept me in the shade
with a human touch another life is saved

Steering my weary heart to the horizon
listening as the whispering wind
called out to me
my eyes pierced  through the darkest cloud
a glimmer of a new hope setting me free

Closer to the darkness the world revealed
its mystery & beauty just for me
So I dove in to the unknown
a chance to sink or swim
another chance to be

repeat chorus

bridge:

Riding on this wave I hope
will lead me to the truth
all I know is every ocean
leads me back to you
if there's one thing I have learned 
about the wind that cries
Look inside be bold be brave
& open up your eyes

repeat chorus x 2

 

Surrender
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017
You no longer stand before me
I remember when you used to adore me
now I've got to learn to let you go
If I could learn to let you leave
and love alone, to live & let live

In your arms I never have to
wait to fall asleep
In my heart I never have to
wait to fall in love
in your eyes I can see
my dreams are not complete
I can see that I'll never be enough for you

Without your love the days are longer
I remember when I used to be stronger
I've been hurt before I should know better
when will I learn nothing lasts forever

In your arms I never have to
wait to fall asleep 
In my heart I never have to
wait to fall in love 
in your eyes I can see
my dreams are not complete 
I can see that I'll never be enough for you

Surrender all, surrender all

repeat chorus x 2

 

Choose To Love  
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017 
Won't you come hear the crowd
with the sound?
& dance in the sky with your
heart in the clouds 
& do that thing that you do
that you did before? 
You can see what your eyes can't touch 
& you know that you're close
but it's just too much 
You wanna live the dream &
baby make it yours 

Just sit back, relax, what is meant for you  
is coming don't you worry at all 

(won't you take me higher?) 

Dreams are made to come true
in the light 
that's why we work to continue the fight 
Keep your head to the sky
& soon you'll be adored 

'Cause I choose to love 
Yea I choose to love 
Baby choose to love  
Choose love & love 
will set you free! 

I choose to love
I choose to love you
elevate you

supernova take me over
take me closer
take me closer to the way 
you choose to love

You choose to love 
You choose to love it 
elevate it

supernova take me over 
take me closer 
take me closer to the way  
you choose to love

Now we're here to continue the show 
stepping into the groove
as we glide with the flow 
Giving love & knowing things will move for sure 
Promise you'll reach to the top of the heap 
I know its the truth
'cause you sow what you reap 
& baby now it's time to show the world! 

bridge

Let the beat drop 
Makes your heart stop 
Wanna go high? 
Feeling so fly 
Take a love drop 
drop the soft top 
Take a space flight 
You're my starlight 

Repeat chorus x 2 

 

The Floor 
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017 
Each time I see you I can't take no more 
always wishing that my heart
would lead me out the door 
you got a thing about you I can see 
and I wanna pull away but
baby I can't leave. 

then you touch me & I'm barely breathing 
& my body's feeling 
what I don't believe in 
I need to go but I just wanna stay 
I know you came to play 
but It's a big mistake. 

I know you think you've got game 
but my rules have changed. 

I'm up off the floor 
I don't wanna see you 
coming round my door 
love ain't here no more 
no you're not a friend 
baby it ain't worth it 
its time to let you go 

I'm hoping you don't show 
Im hoping you don't show 
no, no. no 

Each time I see you it's a big mistake 
keep on wishing but instead 
its just my heart you take 

wish it was different but I know it ain't 
& I know I can't believe you 
cause your word is fake 

You fill me up with so much confusion 
its a constant delusion 
I just need a solution 

You gotta go so I can spread my wings 
with another brother who can see 
that I'm the queen 

repeat chorus 

It costs a lot of cents to loose my sense 
so I'm spending the rent 
on the eight percent 
malt liquor get thicker on the steel reserve 
my words turn to curses 
and my mind gets perverse 
I'm lurking and I'm flirting
with discourtesy 
and it's sure to be emergency
rooms for me 
with the B.A.C on the up tic 
something's up with the I.V 
I see I.C.U's in the future
when I say a shot 
I don't mean a booster use your brain 
before you loose your game 
to the fog & haze 
in the winter when we're longing 
for the longer days 
but the seasons change 
and we must remain 
in the summer when the cover 
of the ground is grey 
from the drought we discover 
the thirst rehearsed 
the unquenchable desire 
of a human so cursed. 

chorus 

I can't do this no more 
Cause I'm up off the floor 
I'm showing you the door 
cause love ain't here no more 
yea I'm up off the floor 
I'm showing you the door 
cause love ain't here no more 
yea I'm up off the floor 
cause love ain't her no more 
I'm showing you the door 
yea I'm up off the floor 
cause love ain't here no more 
Im showing you the door 
yea I'm up off the floor
 

Blacklight Lullaby 

Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017

Smooth & shiny love
I got a taste for danger a taste for love
seduction by destruction
fits me like a glove

Laying here your pistol in-between
I give in, I surrender I'm a refugee

Sing to me in silence as we lie
let me hear your secret blacklight lullaby

Sound of the silencer so serene
I'm pulling on the trigger of a love machine Annihilation by captivation
you know what I mean

I the darkness we glow
like ultra-violet light
reap what you sow it's an ultra violent life

repeat chorus x 2

I give in, I surrender, I'm a refugee
 

Soul Shaman
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017
No light in the sky above
when it's better to hate than love
Your body begs for salvation

but who's gonna save your soul?
who's gonna save your soul?
who's gonna save you?

Angels spoke to me told me I was safe
said I should remain oh oh oh  
but angels never die not all of us can fly

repeat chorus 

Every soul wants to be saved
the precious the pure the depraved
those who judge will be judged to
your fate's beyond control


I'm right where I'm supposed to be
because I still believe
I will find my way oh oh oh
I know he's by my side eternally to guide

repeat chorus

The sky is falling raining down on me
(The sky is falling raining down on me...)

Holy Mary mother of god 
pray for us sinners now

and at the hour of our death
Amen

repeat chorus x 2

 

 

Sally's Song 
Lyrics & music by Danny Elfman 

I sense there's something in the wind 
That feels like tragedy's at hand 
And though I'd like to stand by him 
Can't shake this feeling that I have 
The worst is just around the bend 

And does he notice my feelings for him? 
And will he see how much
he means to me? 
I think it's not to be 

What will become of my dear friend? 
Where will his actions lead us then? 
Although I'd like to join the crowd 
In their enthusiastic cloud 
Try as I may, it doesn't last 

And will we ever end up together? 
No, I think not, it's never to become 
For I am not the one


Tears In The Rain
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017

One man's joy, another one's sorrow
one heart stolen, another one borrowed
one time I dreamed of only you
I've got to hide what I'm going through
What am I to do? 
hiding from the truth

like tears in the rain
(I want to be someone)
no-one left to blame
(I want to feel something)
like tears in the rain
(no sense in going back)
 tears in the rain
I want to be a part of you)

I thought when I first met you
(Not walking out that door)
my days of loneliness were through
(just want to be with you)
you walk away my lips are sealed
(I'm not leaving what we have)
no one can see - I thought you knew

Oh, oh, wont you listen
If I could only see
All we need is there

repeat chorus
i feel my hear it beats so boldly
grasp my jaw that chatters coldly
(As if to keep the chill outside
the space I hold my thoughts inside)

It's not the wind the feels so cold
my journey's fate for seen for told
It's fear of facing the unknown
leaping 'cross the stepping stones

I look at you & I feel hurt 
can't face the day my heart is burned
each time I breathe I choke up inside
is their somewhere I can run & hide?

repeat chorus

 
Rapture
words & music Nadia Ali & Markus Moser

The night I laid my eyes on you 
I felt everything around me move 
Got nervous when you looked my way 
But you knew all the words to say 

And your love slowly moved right in 
All this time, oh my love, where you been 

Mi amore don't you know 
My love I want you so 
Sugar you make my soul complete 
Rapture tastes so sweet 

I'm mesmerised in every way 
You keep me in a state of daze 
Your kisses make my skin feel weak 
Always melting in your heat 

Then I soar like a bird in the wind 
Oh I glide like I'm flying through heaven 

Mi amore don't you know 
My love I want you so 
Sugar you make my soul complete 
Rapture tastes so sweet 

Mi amore don't you know 
My love I want you so 
Sugar  you make my soul complete 
your rapture tastes so sweet 

La 
La la la la la la 
La la la la la la 
La 
La la la la la la 
La la la la la la 

Mi amore don't you know 
My love I want you so 
Sugar you make my soul complete 
your rapture tastes so sweet 

Mi amore don't you know 
My love I want you so 
Sugar you make my soul complete 
Rapture tastes so sweet

In Time 
Christiana Blain, Phil Kadet, Nick Atkinson copyright 2017 
Time slipping through your fingers 
Time, trip into the future 
Time truly waits for no man 
Time, the hour glass of sand 

Satellite spinning in infinity 
elusive minutes slip into eternity 
can't seem to recall who I used to be 
In time all the answers
are revealed to me 

In time, everyone among us 
In time, everyone beyond us 
In time, we will all be stardust 
In time, in time, in time 

Time is the only treasure 
Time ties us all together 
Time, only now or never 
dream until the end of time

The cradle of creation
big bang situation
am I just a number?
am I part of the equation?

Time is just a decimal
space is infinitesimal
I wrestle with this mess
I guess the question 
was intentional?

delusional solutions
to the anti-deluvinal
build an ark suitable
to take you to the crucible

chemical ingredients
the mediums of deviants
the easiest recipe
is hydrogen & helium

Negative & positive
evocative of opposites
then I posit the deposit
so provoactive

Is all of this a mockery?
Is there a god?
Is he invented?
Back & forth advantages
a game, a match of tennis

biding my time
knowing its the same
either way
hiding the sign is stop
before it eats away

Deity or singularity?
or serendipity?
It's hitting me
I'm pitting the epitome
of infancy
against a symphony
that was created
by a man or a machine?

It's up to me, it's up to you
It's a pursuit of something true
We never loose the resolution 
in the search around the one

We never prove a revolution
of the Earth around the sun

repeat chorus

Eons from now (eons from now)
eons long ago (long, long ago)
Some way, some how,
we will all be one

Eons from now (eons from now) 
eons long ago (long, long ago) 
Some way, some how, 
we will all be one

Satellite spinning in infinity
elusive minutes slip
into eternity
can't seem to recall
who I used to be
in time all the answers
are revealed to me.

Satellite spinning in infinity 
elusive minutes slip 
into eternity 
can't seem to recall 
who I used to be 
in time all the answers 
are revealed to me.

In time, everyone among us
in time, everyone beyond us
in time, we will all be stardust 

In time, in time, in time...
