Stranger in a town
Unfamiliar to me
I travelled the Earth around
Through lands, skies and deep seas
Like an adventurer
Like a missionary
Tracking his true lover
Guided by faith only

My golden girl
My diamond queen
Where in the world
Are you hiding?

Loner in a crowd
Oblivious to me
I scan faces all around
For one pearl in the sea
Like the buried treasures
Of archeologists
With the patient structure
Of a gemologist

Queen of my heart
Girl of my dreams
I tried so hard
For many years
Do dreams come true?
Is true love real?

Diamond in the rough
Rarest thing of beauty
I have my map and my cross
And continue searching
My magnifying glass
And my notepad handy
And when we meet at last
These are the words you’ll hear

Oh, when we meet at last
These are the words I’ll speak

My sparkling gem
Oh, you blind me
C’est toi que j’aime
You’re all I see
I look at you
And I see me

My perfect gem
It’s Plato’s story
The yin and yang
The full taiji
I am for you
And you’re for me

Oh, stranger in a town
Oblivious to me
I travel the Earth around
For one pearl in the sea...

My golden girl
My diamond queen
Where in the world
Are you hiding?

Come And Gone


There’ll be no second chance
For our withered romance
The dimming candlelight
Made it all clear tonight

Though you still say "I love you"
Can’t help feeling lonely and cold
Cause when you say "It’s alright"
The next moment you turn and go
Cause you don’t (no more)
And it’s not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

The rose on our table loses one more petal
Like a grim omen for our faltering fable

It all went by
It all went wrong
Our hopes were high
But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

There’ll be no twist of fate
As we’re cleaning the plates
No wishing star in sight
Through the misty moonlight

I tried to say "I love you"
But the words caught in my throat
Wanted to say "I’m alright"
But the tears started to flow
Cause I don’t (no more)
And I’m not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

Our vainly set table covered in rose petals
Is like a death bed for the fairytale we told

It all went by
It all went wrong
Our hopes were high
But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

Oh, it all went by
It all went wrong
We hear the chimes
From across town
After tonight
You won’t come home
We kiss goodbye
We’ve come and gone

The sky was too high for our crumbling castle

The last petal
Grimly trembles

Come And Gone

Prayers

God is dead
Fanatics lead the wars
Faith is on the decline
Hatred is on the rise
Thousands of angels fall

Love is dead
The writing’s on the wall
Sex is the new divine
Divorce hits a new high
Millions of hearts beat false

So I say
A prayer for the lost
Another for the poor
A prayer for the weak
And one for the fearful
And I send my prayers
To the One Most Hallowed

Sanctus fortis
Sanctus immortalis
Miserere nobis

God is dead
The scriptures lead to wars
Souls are on the decline
Egos are on the rise
Thousands don’t hear the call

Love is dead
People are building walls
Techs are the new divine
Distress hits a new high
Millions are torn apart

So I say
A prayer for the wronged
Another for the fooled
A prayer for the sick
And one for the sinful
And I send my prayers
To the One Most Hallowed

Sanctus fortis
Sanctus immortalis
Miserere nobis

Sanctus fortis
Sanctus immortalis
Miserere nobis

Let’s all say
A prayer for the shunned
Another for the old
A prayer for the sad
And one for the hateful
And let’s send our prayers
To the One Most Hallowed

Sanctus Deus
Sanctus fortis
Sanctus immortalis
Miserere nobis
Et totius mundi

Call Me Out

I glance your way
And catch you looking mine
So I turn away
I laugh at your jokes
But never look in your eyes
So maybe you don’t know

I wish I was more brave
I wish I was just a little less shy
Wish I had the courage
To wiggle my little white flag

But I’m afraid to make a fool
(Of myself)
So I’m afraid I’ll need you to
(Make me tell)

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

I dream of us
And a house we call home
But then I wake up
I say I love you
To your photo on my phone
But with you I go mute

I’m not good at love games
It’d be simpler if you could read my mind
I wish you’d take the reins
And drive me to confess all night

Cause I’m afraid to make a fool
(Of myself)
So I’m afraid I’ll need you to
(Make me tell)

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

With a little daring I’d walk right up to you
With a little more guts I’d bare my heart to you
But with a little luck you’ll pick up on my truth
And you’ll

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

Call Me Out

Omega

I must have had a moment of weakness
To think for even a split second
That a lone, odd, black wolf
Could hope for a little support and friendship
From a knitted flock of sheep

I must have been so wildly starved and stressed
To trust you’d show consideration
To a wary lone wolf
But you made it clear I am an intruder
Truly sorry to disturb

But when you denied me your helping hand
The blow re-ignited my dying flame

So thank you for reminding me who I am
Thanks for reminding me where I came from
I’m capable and independent
An Omega is who I am

I’ll strike out on my own
Through the swamps and the tall grass
Blaze a trail of my own
Through the storms and the snow blasts
Covering up my tracks
And you’ll hear me in the night
Howling with pride
The cry of the Omega

Our metal is tested through agony
Mine is shaped like the head of a dude
An individual
Is what I still boast while you all seek to blend
With your friends and with the trends

What pride is there in assisted glory?
I’d rather strive alone than owe you
Your stamp of approval
Would only smear my self-made identity
Truly, your contempt saved me

Cause when the burning hurt choked up my throat
I swallowed it and I claimed back control

So thank you for reminding me who I am
Thanks for reminding me what I stand for
Autonomy and self-reliance
Yeah, Omega is what I am

I strike out on my own
Through the swamps and the tall grass
Blaze a trail of my own
Through the storms and the snow blasts
Covering up my tracks
And you’ll hear me in the night
Howling with pride
The cry of the Omega

And I cannot fail cause I’ll
Either make it or I’ll drop
Because even if I tire
I won’t rest and I won’t stop
Until the mountain top
And you’ll hear me from the heights
Howling my pride
The pride of the Omega

And when you come to me with begging hands
Expecting to leech off my hard-earned fame

My prize will be to remind you where you stand
For snubbing me before I built my throne
And you’re not welcome on my domaine
Cause Omegas don’t share their claims
And an Omega is who I am

I strike out on my own
Through the swamps and the tall grass
Blaze a trail of my own
Through the storms and the snow blasts
Covering up my tracks
And you’ll hear me in the night
Howling with pride
The cry of the Omega

And I cannot fail cause I’ll
Either make it or I’ll drop
Because even if I tire
I won’t rest and I won’t stop
Until the mountain top
And you’ll hear me from the heights
Howling my pride
The pride of the Omega

Who stroke out on his own
Blazed a trail of his own
And made it… on his own

No Party Girl (Om shanti)

Go call me a party pooper
It won’t be the first time or the last
I bet you’ll look back when you’re older
And remember your youth as a flash

You say the more the merrier
That’s just one way to view the scene
I say the more the messier
Look at all those dishes to clean

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

Go ahead and tag me as shy
But shyness is insecurity
Plugging into the higher Wi-Fi
Is how I recharge my batteries

When I’m alone, I’m not lonely
Like those who crave companionship
When I’m quiet I’m not angry
That’s just how I reload my ship

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

I’m sorry your fun depends on me
That seems to be typical of your kind
You see, you’re a dopamine junkie
While my kind runs on acethylcholine
We’re the 3 in 10 minority
Whose pleasure drug is a little more kind

A little respect for the girl with the buzy front lobe, please
A little patience with the girl with the hightened senses, please

Om shanti, om shanti...

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Go on and brand me as selfish
Like you’re thinking of me in all this

It’s not like I can shake off who I am
Give me one good reason I should want to
But I can shake you off, that’s no problem
There’s more than one reason I would want to

You may want to sit
And meditate on this…

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
...

Taste Like Regret


The magic's lost
The spark died out
You didn't say it out loud
But it was easy to figure out
Something was lost
Our love was stained
You thought you needed a change
And now things will never be the same

I am no fool and you know
So you kiss me and hold me close
I am no fool but I know
It'd be harder to let you go

I try to move on
I try to carry on
But your eyes tell me something's wrong
I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

The magic's gone
The well dried out
Happened that night you went out
And came home after the lights went out
The moment's gone
When love was bright
And we thought we'd win the fights
But some wrongs can never be made right

I am no fool and you know
So you kiss me and hold me close
I am no fool but I know
It'd be harder to let you go

I try to move on
I try to carry on
But your eyes tell me something's wrong
I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

Oh, I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

The magic's lost
The spark died out
You didn't say it out loud
But it was easy to figure out

Hold me and I will pretend
That the whole thing never happened
Hold me and we can pretend
That we're not coming to the end

Taste Like Regret

God, You’re Beautiful!

Say, you must be a magician
Because every time you walk into the room
Everything around you disappears
I’d like to know how you do it

Say, would you be a comedian?
Because I can’t help smiling when I’m with you
You make all my troubles disappear
You must tell me how you do it

There’s no doubt about it
You must be God’s favourite

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

I close my eyes and I see you
Your soft hair, your deep, bright eyes, your striking smile
All so real, I could almost touch it
Say, is there any chance of it?

I dream at night and I’m with you
On a date, on a cruise ship, a theme park ride
On the moon, watching the sky map shift
How could I not be swayed by it?

Your secret’s been unhearted
You weren’t born on Earth

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Say, you must be a musician
Because every time you step into the light
I can hear a hundred voices sing
In the most glorious symphony

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Yeah, God, you're beautiful!

God, you're beautiful!..

Come And Gone


There’ll be no second chance
For our withered romance
The dimming candlelight
Made it all clear tonight

Though you still say "I love you"
Can’t help feeling lonely and cold
Cause when you say "It’s alright"
The next moment you turn and go
Cause you don’t (no more)
And it’s not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

The rose on our table loses one more petal
Like a grim omen for our faltering fable

It all went by
It all went wrong
Our hopes were high
But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

There’ll be no twist of fate
As we’re cleaning the plates
No wishing star in sight
Through the misty moonlight

I tried to say "I love you"
But the words caught in my throat
Wanted to say "I’m alright"
But the tears started to flow
Cause I don’t (no more)
And I’m not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

Our vainly set table covered in rose petals
Is like a death bed for the fairytale we told

It all went by

But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

Oh, it all went by
It all went wrong
We hear the chimes
From across town
After tonight
You won’t come home
We kiss goodbye
We’ve come and gone

The sky was too high for our crumbling castle

The last petal
Grimly trembles

I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

Go ahead and tag me as shy
But shyness is insecurity
Plugging into the higher Wi-Fi
Is how I recharge my batteries

When I’m alone, I’m not lonely
Like those who crave companionship
When I’m quiet I’m not angry
That’s just how I reload my ship

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

I’m sorry your fun depends on me
That seems to be typical of your kind
You see, you’re a dopamine junkie
While my kind runs on acethylcholine
We’re the 3 in 10 minority
Whose pleasure drug is a little more kind

A little respect for the girl with the buzy front lobe, please
A little patience with the girl with the hightened senses, please

Om shanti, om shanti...

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Go on and brand me as selfish
Like you’re thinking of me in all this

It’s not like I can shake off who I am
Give me one good reason I should want to
But I can shake you off, that’s no problem
There’s more than one reason I would want to

You may want to sit
And meditate on this…

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
