'Time has stopped before us,
The sky cannot ignore us,
No one can separate us,
For we are all that is left.

The shadow lost beside me,
There's no more need to pretend,
Cause now I can begin again.'

"The perception that divides you from her
is a lie.
For some reason
you never asked why.

This is not a black and white world,
you can't afford to believe in your side.
This is not a black and white world.

To be alive
I say the colors must swirl,
and I believe
that maybe today,
we will all get to appreciate,
the beauty of gray."

'She has the daylight at her command,
She gives the night its dreams,

She can uncover your darkest fear,

And make you forget you feel it.


But wait just one minute more,
I can see that she's trying to free me,
(Suddenly I know).


She's going to change the world,
But she can't change me.

No she can't, change, me.


Suddenly I can see
everything that's wrong, with me
But what can I do?
I'm the only thing I really have, at all.'

American Life

DEAD BODY
Location: Metropolitan Square, Damansara Perdana


'I'm drinking a Soy latte,
I get a double shotte,
It goes through my body,
And you know I'm satisfied.

I drive my Mini Cooper,
And I'm feeling super-dooper,
Yo they tell I'm a trooper,
And you know I'm satisfied.

I do yoga and Pilates,
And the room is full of hotties,
So I'm checking out the bodies,
And you know I'm satisfied.

I'm digging on the isotopes,
This metaphysics shit is dope,
And if all this can give me hope,
You know I'm satisfied.

I got a lawyer and a manager,
An agent and a chef,
Three nannies, an assistant,
And a driver and a jet,
A trainer and a butler,
And a bodyguard or five,
A gardener and a stylist,
Do you think I'm satisfied?

I'd like to express my extreme point of view,
I'm not Christian and I'm not a Jew,
I'm just living out the American dream,
And I just realised that nothing,
Is what it seems.

Do I have to change my name,
Am I gonna be a star?
Do I have to change my name.'

"Wahai jiwa-jiwa yang tenang,
jangan sekali-kali kamu
mencoba jadi Tuhan
dengan mengadili dan menghakimi.

Bahwasanya kamu
memang tak punya daya dan upaya,
Serta kekuatan untuk menentukan kebenaran yg sejati.

Bukankah kita memang tercipta laki-laki dan wanita,
dan menjadi suku-suku bangsa yang pasti berbeda,
bukankah kita harus saling mengenal dan menghormati,
Bukan untuk saling bercerai berai
dan berperang angkat senjata."

car wash (also on Sundays).

No longer afraid of the dark or midday shadows
nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate,

Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee.
Your philosophies on art,
Baroque moved you.
Do you love Mozart?
And you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar.

Well excuse me!
Cause I've mistaken you for somebody else,
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself.

These foolish games are tearing me,
you tearing me,
you tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
You're breaking my heart..'

Lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay"
Some of us hover when we weep for the other
who was dying since the day they were born,
Well, well, this is not that

And I thought I'd live forever,

You try to tell me that I'm clever,
That won't take me anyhow,

But I'll show how I'm feeling,

Well I can't explain, why it's not enough,
Cos I gave it all to you,
And if you leave me now,
Oh just leave me now,

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone,
I recommend walking around naked in your living room,
Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill),
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach),
Wait until the dust settles.


[ CHORUS ]

You live you learn,

You love you learn,

You cry you learn,

You
lose you learn,
You bleed you learn,
You scream you learn.

I recommend biting off more than you can chew to anyone
(I certainly, certainly, certainly do),
I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at anytime (feel free),
Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)

Hold it up (to the rays),

You wait and see when the smoke clears.

[ Repeat CHORUS ]
Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do),
Melt it down (you're gonna have to eventually anyway),
The fire trucks are coming up around the bend.

You grieve you learn,
You choke you learn,
You laugh you learn,
You choose you learn,
You pray you learn,
You ask you learn,
You live you learn,
