More Time (Lyrics)

Scorch the sun from the sky
blank the stars at night
feel the world stop spinning
nothing left for to fight
oxygen fading like the eyes in your head
temperature rising before we are dead

give me more time
give me more time (give me more time)
give me more time 175
give me more time

here we are now at the end of all things
life as we know it and all that it brings
nothing left to do but stop fighting and see
time standing still for you and for me

give me more time
give me more time (give me more time)
give me more time 175
give me more time

The Grand Design (lyrics)

stuck and confined
nothing but time and thoughts for company
find the elementary beginning of life and time
where are we from why are we here?
lives ignite and flicker like the sun
and fade like the night
as we are searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design

New Found Appreciation (Lyrics)

VERSE ONE
My new found appreciation
For the air I breathe
For the smiles I see
For the life I used to lead
Don’t leave it to me
As I need that constant reminding
To be better, to be better, to be better than I am
So lucky now
That life’s still in my grasp
That the world hasn’t faded so fast
That I can see you all once more
CHORUS
With my new found appreciation x2
VERSE TWO
News was disappointing but glad there was a cause
Waiting so desperately in desolate hallways and long corridors
Could this be the last holiday that I get to adore?
Sitting there lonely, in pain on the cold vinyl hospital floors
CHORUS x1
VERSE THREE
I think of times gone by and
Of new generations
That shall see a world, that will know a world
That I shall never know
I look to the future
The past has flown by
There still so many things in this only life
That I have yet to try
I have looked fear in the face
And I have conquered the pain
I only hope that I can stay on track
And keep up the change
CHORUSx1
OUTRO
My new found appreciation x3
For the air I breathe
My new found appreciation
For the smiles I see
My new found appreciation

Be With You (Lyrics)

INTRO
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
I just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
Just wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you
VERSE ONE
Every time in my life I see her face
I just die inside
Then she tells me that she’s leaving
She’s going back home
What am I to do?
VERSE TWO
See everything about you girl
It’s the way that I am when im with you
Oh, how I feel
So can you not see that it’s my selfish motivations?
I just can’t control myself!
CHORUS
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight and every night
And I just can’t live without you
Oh don’t go away
Lets live for today
VERSE THREE
And so everything
In my life
Has lost so much significance
Yeah the only thing that matters now
Is the time I spend with you
Oh baby help me
CHORUS
VERSE1
Every time in my life I see her face
I just die inside
Then she tells me that she’s leaving
She’s going back home
What am I to do? (What am I to do?)
CHORUS
OUTRO
Just wanna be with you x4

Can You Feel It? (Lyrics)

Verse One
Woke up this morning singing this song again
Not really sure where it’s coming from
Doesn’t matter cause ill sing it anyway?
But where it will go only god will know
Verse Two
And so this song is for all of you
So listen up ill only sing it once
It’s the music that can bring us to together now
But the hate the drives us all apart
Bridge
But no matter where you are
The music is still the same
Chorus
Can you feel the heat of life running through your veins?
Can you feel the beat of the music as it touches your very soul? x2
Verse Three
So I woke up this morning singing this song again
I wanted to share it with all of you
It’s the music that can bring us to together now
But the hate the drives us all apart
Bridge
Chorus x2
(Can you feel the music, can you feel the music, oh baby can you feel the music,
Running deep inside, can you feel the music baby – wohoha)
Chorus x2

One Fine Day (lyrics)

Chorus
One fine day, today
Just like yesterday
You know, life goes on in the blink of an eye
Verse One
Friends and faces, times and places
Close memories, here we are
Once more just for you

Verse Two
Slowly your journey comes to an end
As your eyes start to fade
As the curtains are open
Letting the light shine onto your heart

God is standing by your side
Open your heart look into his eyes
See all the love of the world in an instant
Its time for your new journey to start
Chorus x3

Sun (Lyrics)

Copyright James Scanlon; www.hyperactiveproductions.com.au; 2009
SUN

Turn the corner, an empty desk
Open the door to another room
Finding for answers that don’t exist
All things gone too soon

Wish it wasn’t so
Simply waiting for another tomorrow
So take me to a far away place
Bless all the others with a similar fate

But for now ill just sit back and try and enjoy the sun
It’s so much easier when I have nowhere left to run

Loose ends untied now
And things incomplete
6 billion people I’ve yet to meet
Together forever in no more pain
To love is to lose and to grieve is our fate

Wish you were here now out in the sun
Sitting enjoying the day
Reflecting on times gone by
And those so very close memories

But for now ill just sit back and try and enjoy the sun
It’s so much easier when I have nowhere left to run

Don’t worry time will heal all wounds my friend
As we sit idly by and watch it all disappear (oh disappear)
Don’t worry
Nothing is forever now
Until all that’s left is the love between you and I

Don’t worry anymore about anything
To do in this life
And you know everything
Has its place in the world

So don’t worry about anything anymore
So don’t worry about anything anymore

Drones/Worker Bees (Lyrics)

worker bee
worked bee
jammed in trains like sardines
deadened stares
like a morgue routine
im a worker bee

stop and breathe
quiet relief
panics taking a hold of me
running late for my date running late
running late

honeycomb traffic jams
caffeine nectar on demand
faster technology
havent slowed the pace

large flatscreen tv’s
no one cares if you have three
only notice its not theirs
who really fucking cares?

CHORUS
worker bee, worker bee
status anxiety
burstout coccoon
butterflies in the room of life
worker bee, worker bee
see the forest for the trees
longer days and shorter nights
work to live and live your life

VERSE 2
non social bee, non social bee
soon to be deafened bee
white cabled umbilical cord
separate you from the hoarde
world of sound, world of sound
block out noise from those around
doesnt matter its too late
youll be deaf , youll be irate

pretty bee pretty bee
sitting there in front of me
train stop missed as i do perve
talk to her if i get up the nerve
she gets off
(at the stop that is)
wondering what did I just miss?
pretty bee pretty bee notice me pretty please

CHORUS

old lady bee old lady bee
struggling with her bags of three
stop to give a helping hand
only love should be givin on demand
smilling bee smikling bee
see the forest for the trees
longer days and shorter nights
but work to live and live your life

OUTTRO
all in all the days go on
inboxes still full when we are gone
another job the great beyond
im still a worker bee
all thats left here and now
smile at me dont share the frowns
here together in all of this
make the best of this crazy gift

nothing else matters
but here and now
smile out loud when in the crouds
every road block who gives a fuck
smell the roses time to stop

CHORUS
