Track Name: WANTED
WANTED by elledge

wanted, wanted, wanted, a love like yours'
wanted, wanted, wanted, you reaching out to me
wanted, wanted, wanted, something more than myself
wanted wanted, wanted, something more, something else

but there was emptiness and silence
there was pure nothingness
a numbness of feeling,
there was hopelessness
take my arms
they long to hold you near

wanted, wanted, wanted, our love to be real
wanted, wanted, wanted, no rolling stone unturned
wanted, wanted, wanted, no fooling, no rime
wanted, wanted, wanted, only you hoping to find

but there was emptiness and silence
there was pure nothingness,
a numbness of feeling,
there was hopelessness
take my lips, their tender caresse
take my heart....(instrumental)

while searching empty spaces
somehow I've lost the time
no more silly questions
i've made up my lost mind
take my arms they long to hold you so near
take my lips and their tender caresse
take my heart its longing to share

wanted, wanted, wanted a love like yours'
wanted, wanted, wanted, to reach out to you
but there was emptiness and silence

there was pure nothingness,
a numbness of feeling
there was hopelessness
take my arms they long to hold you so near
take my lips, their tender caresse
take my heart, its longing to share
take my life
i offer to you....
Track Name: Take Off Your Clothes
Take Off Your Clothes by elledge

Take off your clothes, don't wanna see 'em anymore
Take off your clothes, don't wanna touch 'em anymore
And just lie down, I want to see you
Just lie down, don't make a sound

Take off your hair, I wanna touch your shiny scalp
Take off your hair, want to rub my fingers there
And just lie down, I want to see you
Just lie down, don't make a sound

Take off my clothes, don't want to wear them anymore
Take off my clothes, don't want them againt my skin
And let me lie down beside you
Let me lie down, I won't make a sound

Take out my brain, I don't want to think anymore
Take out my brain, don't want consciousness anymore
And let me lie down beside you
Let me lie down, I won't make a sound

Take out my tongue, I've got nothin' to say
Take out my tongue, words just get in the way
And let's lie down together
Let's lie down, we won't make a sound...
Track Name: FACE MASK
Face Mask by elledge

your face mask, with painted ribbons for hair
your face mask you left it there
your face mask is now next to me
your face mask, tell me can it be?

painted masks on painted people
painted masks on painted family
painted masks on painted voices
painted masks on painted friends

your face mask of orange and green
your face mask with glitter and a tear
your face mask is somehow calling to me
your fase mask is there a message for me?

painted masks on painted people
painted masks on painted family
painted masks on painted voices
painted masks on painted friends

your face mask with clay skin so fair
your face mask made up with such care
your face mask is now singing to me
your face mask has somehow set you free

painted masks on painted people
painted masks on painted family
painted masks on painted voices
painted masks on painted friends

empty eyes, painted lips, painted masks on painted people...
Track Name: FLOWERS AND LIFE
FLOWERS AND LIFE by elledge

I love flowers blooming in the spring
Nature’s soft petals, the softness they bring
Colors splashing on the hills
Landscapes changing, lighting that thrills

I love flowers, their shiny bright hues
Just like the feelings, when I looked at you
Now, am thinking of those flowers; walking in the rain
Asking myself how long has it been? (spoken)

I walk this path that leads to you
Where once bright, shiny colored flowers grew (spoken)
I walk this path that leads to you
Where once bright, shiny colored flowers grew (spoken)

Boys don’t cry, girls don’t lie, stick a needle in my eye
Liar, liar, pants on fire, hang me on a telephone wire
Green, green gasoline, it’s the scariest thing I’ve ever seen
Blue, blue, you got the flu, I don’t want to play……. anymore

genetic predispositions
biological affiliations
clinical conditioning
logical interventions

I wanted to be in love with you,
tell me what else could I do?
I wanted to be loved by you,
must I paint my soul blue?

genetic attributions
biological assimulations
synthetic populations
pathetic transformations

they wanted me to be just like you
tell me what could I do?
they wanted me to think just like you,
tell me, I haven't a clue

genetic attributions
frenetic interrogations
synthetic conceptions
estetic interventions

genetic predispositions

estetic interventions!

they wanted me to be just like you
tell me what could I do?
they wanted me to think like you
tell me, I haven't a clue
I only wanted to be loved by you
tell me 'cause I haven't got a clue...
