Prologue
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

Wake up young man.
We've come here to undo your chains
Get out of your bed.
Escape from this prison you made.

You can't stay much longer.
Your fears will grow stronger
The bottle inside you is full.

Get out of your basement,
And shut off your video games.
Open your book,
And read us the lines of your pain.

Alone in your Basement
The pages of sorrow
The Bottle inside you is full.

Don't be afraid,
You can pour out your heart.
We know how feel
Cause we've all played this part.

Pick up your life
And perform it again.
You can't change the past
But you can change the end.

Open your book,
And unleash the lines of your life.
 
 

The Story
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

Listen to my story if it strikes a chord with you.
About the things that happened every day.
All your friends deceive you and they stab you in the back.
And all that you can do is walk away.

And as I walked away I kept my anger to myself,
and this is why I talk to you today.
Bottled up emotions may do damage to your health.
So listen to the words that I will say.

Hear the things that I was seeing.
See the things that I have heard.
Feel the things that I was feeling.
Just listen to the meaning in the words.

I'll tell you all the stories from the past year of my life.
And show you how my vision came to sight.
I was very doubtful that my feelings couldn't lie.
But now I'm sure that I was always right.

And for everything that happened there are things I have to say.
I've waited long enough to see this time.
With music I will take you through my recent high school days.
I've waited long enough to speak my mind.

Hear the things that I was seeing.
See the things that I have heard.
Feel the things that I was feeling.
Just listen to the meaning in the words.
 

Doing My Thang
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

Sitting in a classroom from 8 AM to 3
I stayed out of trouble. When trouble stayed with me.
Never caused a problem.  Stayed out of the way.
Never talked to ladies.  I had nothing to say.

Hanging with the big man
and everybody left us alone.
We just had a good time.
And didn't even need to get stoned.

Lord only knows
I'm just doing my thang.
Nobody knows
I'm just doing my thang.

I walked through the hallway, I had my own style.
No facial expression.  Not a hint of a smile.
I had an extra large T-shirt, and loose fitting pants.
And big daddy called me horizontally enhanced.

I didn't bother no one
and nobody else bothered me.
I just played my guitar
and had a laugh with big daddy D.

Lord only knows
I'm just doing my thang.
Nobody knows
I'm just doing my thang.

And as I get older some problems arise.
It's who's seeing this one and who's getting high.
I don't change for no one. I don't change for me.
I don't joke around.  What you get is what you see.
I didn't bother no one
but certain things were bothering me.
Should I get with the times,
or be the guy that I wanna be?

Lord only knows
I'm just doing my thang.
Nobody knows
I'm just doing my thang.
 
 

Alone in my Basement
(R. Castellano)

Nothing to do and I must have called up everyone.
It's Saturday night and everyone else is out having fun.
Nobody called up to tell me where everyone's going to.
It's Saturday night and I'm staying home with nothing to do.

I can do some homework, or that history essay I've been putting off...
again.
I can clean up my room but what's the point?  It's just gonna get messy...
again.

If everyone's having a ball,
Would it kill them to give me a call?

Monday in school I asked everyone, "Where did you go?".
I got falsified answers and bullshit excuses like, "I don't know."
What are they hiding and why are all my friends avoiding me?
There's something they're doing when I'm not around.  What could it be?
I know what it is.
 
 

Birds Eye View
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I have made some bad decisions
but nothing of your kind.
I get back on my feet again
and leave the past behind

Everybody disregards
the things that I have said.
I wish there was a way for me
to get inside your head.

I can't see the future based on
what you do today.
Though I am no prophet
I think it's safe to say.

That you can't put a perspective
on the person you will be.
All your directives
go as far as you can see.

Is this the way?  Is this the path?
Have you been tied down by your fate?

With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I can see the path that I will fly.
With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I know what I must do to stay alive.

What you do tomorrow counts on
what you do today.
Would you try to change your life
If you could find a way?

Your future's past occurs today
So will you have regrets?
Will you remember high school
by some girls and cigarettes?

Everyone is changing
into who they'd like to be.
I never thought that I would change
for anyone but me.

Until I found somebody special,
who I thought could care for me.
But all of her intentions
were a mystery to me.

I thought that this would be the one.
It didn't seem like a mistake.

With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I can see the path that I will fly.
With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I know what I must do to stay alive.
 

Only One Way
(R. Castellano)

Everything I've done or said
Jumps around inside my head.
I try to think of what you mean
With all the little things you say to me.

Though it could be nothing
It means a lot to me.
There is only one way I could know.
There is only one way I could know.

I finally learned that I was wrong.
I learned before it went to long.
Everything's OK and I am fine.
She said that she just needs some time.

I can understand.
She doesn't want a man.
There was only one way I could know.
There was only one way I could know.
 

Paroxysm
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

From the second generation
I heard your good news.
Did you think I wouldn't notice that you lied to me
about your lonely blues
And the person that you picked makes me know
I can't trust anyone.
If everything is fine with you
it's fine with everyone.

Can you see it in my eyes, should it come as a surprise, that you tell me all these lies, you know I wanted to die.

After the explosion I lost all of my emotion
I sit here resistant and desensitized
Why do your actions leave me paralyzed

In the silence of my mind I found a way
to separate that day, convinced that everything was going fine
But then I thought about the partner in the crime
He went too far this time, So here I draw the line with you
My silence is now broken, my true words will be spoken
You'll finally get what you deserve right now
 

Birds Eye View (conclusion)
(R. Castellano)

Years ago I had a friend
But friend he is no more.
Deception broke the chains we made.
With trust we had before.

In a time of circumstance
he took off his disguise
Now I know the path he takes
is covered up with lies.

I can see the future
for his and his to be.
I look down on all of them.
It's easy to believe

That their reasons for affection
take away all my control.
But it isn't your rejection
that will take away your soul.

I know the way, I know the path.
And this will bring you to your end.

With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I can see the path that I will fly.
With my birds eye view up in the sky.
I know what I must do to stay alive.
 
 

Snake
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

In the funky forest you can hear the snake sneaking all around
Waiting for the moment when your eyes go to the sky and off the ground

And you don't even know about the things he'll do you.
Thinking everything will be alright.
With no originality he tries to act like you.
But you don't even know that he could bite.

He's a snake.
Watch him as he lies.
He's a snake
Should you be surprised?
He's a snake.
I can see it in his eyes
He's a snake.

Following your footsteps he can see the things that you will try to do.
Thinking of a way that he could take the things you want away from you.

Look into his eyes and see that nothing is sincere.
Why do all your friends turn out this way.
Lying through his teeth he tells you what you want to hear.
Don't believe a word that he will say.

He's a snake.
Watch him as he lies.
He's a snake
Should you be surprised?
He's a snake.
I can see it in his eyes
He's a snake.

Was This A Game?
(R. Castellano)

I followed you on this dead end street for the longest time.
I sit here and wonder as the stars align.
From the second generation I hear what you think of me.
But your thoughts are so chaotic I can't tell hate from sympathy.

Lying in the darkness I hear your call from far away.
You've given me confusion while you drag me along and there's a price to pay.
Every time I see you I force myself to turn my head.
Cause' I cannot recover from all the useless things you said.

Was this a game to you, did you plan this all along?
While you were using my emotions, did you know that you were wrong?
You've played your game for long enough, when did you plan to end?
If you're looking for a soul to use, you won't touch mine again.

Can you give me some consideration for what I've done?
I followed you through everything and I'm not the one.
Now I know the evil and destruction that you put me through.
Can you see the state of pain that you brought me to?

Was this a game to you, did you plan this all along?
While you were using my emotions, did you know that you were wrong?
You've played your game for long enough, when did you plan to end?
If you're looking for a soul to use, you won't touch mine again.

(Bridge)
Can you see it in my eyes, should it come as a surprise, that you tell me all these lies, you know I wanted to die.

I looked into your eyes and I saw emptiness.
Did you let them get to you, did you fail the pressure test?
Will you be unhappy when you find someone who's just like you?
Moving on isn't hard so that's just what I'll do.

Was this a game to you, did you plan this all along?
While you were using my emotions, did you know that you were wrong?
You've played your game for long enough, when did you plan to end?
If you're looking for a soul to use, you won't touch mine again.
 

Alone in my Basement (part 2)
(R. Castellano)

Sitting alone in a prison created by all my dreams.
Watching the colors and lights appear on my computer screen.
Each button takes me to places that I've never been before.
I'm happy right here and I don't need anyone anymore.

Who am I fooling I'm just a lonely idiot
Messing around with my computer screen.
I'm giving in to everything they said to me.
It's the most pathetic thing I ever seen.

Telephone rings it's one of them
Trying hard to kick me down again.
Pressure works in ways you cannot recognize.
Hanging with your friends can be a great disguise.  
 

Leave Me Alone
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I hang up the telephone
I wanna be left alone.
Thinking bout' what you said.
I wish you were more than dead.

I go back onto my bed.
To clear all the thoughts in my head.
I think about how I'd be.
If you had control of me.

Why won't you leave me alone.
I know what you're doing but the choice is my own.
Why won't you give me some space.
Nothing's a secret when you live in this place.

Monday I went to school.
Where nobody knows I'm cool.
I'm tripping on SAT.
It's better than LSD.

They want me to see Mary Jane.
They said she can't hurt my brain.
But then I heard some facts.
From the man behind my back.

Why won't you leave me alone.
I know what you're doing but the choice is my own.
Why won't you give me some space.
Nothing's a secret when you live in this place.

Everyone's the same.
And I can't lose this game.
With my bald eagle sight.
I know that I'm always right.

I won't sell my soul.
I'll never lose control.
But it's to late for you.
To change the things you do.

Why won't you leave me alone.
I know what you're doing but the choice is my own.
Why won't you give me some space.
Nothing's a secret when you live in this place.
 

One Day
(R. Castellano)

FULL MP3

Now we've come to the end.
You don't have to pretend.
I cannot remember anybody's face.
You all have been replaced,
And I have made my case to you.

One day I will awaken
In a place I know I wanna be.
On a stage with flashing lights,
Far away from wrong and right,
Then the world will see.

You won't open your mind.
All I asked for is time.
Are you listening to anything I say?
Or did you go away?
But please don't try to stay with me.

One day I will awaken
In a place I know I wanna be.
On a stage with flashing lights,
Far away from wrong and right,
Then the world will see.

One day I will awaken
In a place I know I wanna be.
On a stage with flashing lights,
Far away from wrong and right,
Then the world will see.

 

Hold On
Words and Music By Richie Castellano

MP3 CLIP 

I thought that things would never change, they stay the same,
as time goes by you'll be by my side.

I guess you lost the love you used to have for me,
You're turning into someone I don't know.

(chorus)
Hold on, Hold on to your dreams don't let them go away (Don't let them go away)

We've come too far to let them go away

I won't forget the love we had.

I thought you'd never leave this place, you can't erase,
the memories I have inside my mind.

 

I never thought that you could stop and change your pace
and leave the life you used to live behind.

(chorus)

I can't take it any longer. This will be my final stand
I can't see it any clearer. I remember who I am

I found out that I've been wasting time
Waiting for the secret unknown signs.

I've gotten over all the times you went away,
I know that you can't give me all your time.

You never lost the love you used to have for me,
and deep inside I know you are mine.

(chorus)

 

Ramble
Words and Music By Richie Castellano

MP3 CLIP

Speak! Speak your mind.

You got my attention now take up my time.

Promises Promises campaign promises all the time.

I'll build you a public high school or I'll crack down on crime

You don't got no money so you're gonna have to borrow.

Spend it all today and try to pay it back tomorrow.

Go on the TV and make it very clear.

You're working for me and you'll say what I want to hear.

Talk all night and day.
What will people say.

Talk all night and day.

In money making politics, nothing's good until you get your way.

Now here's the part in this song
where I speak my opinion and I tell you what is wrong.

I see my friends [He sees his friends] all around me [yes he does]

Getting high and doing things I know they shouldn't do.

It never ends [It never ends] You know it's true [Yes I do]

If you make good on your promises then I will vote for you.

Cause I don't need [He don't need] To hear you say [To hear you say]

that nothing's gonna happen with the taxes that I pay. When you

Talk all night and day.
What will people say.

Talk all night and day.

In money making politics, nothing's good until you get your way.

 

Two Way Street

Words by Richie Castellano
Music By Richie Castellano and Andy Ascolese

MP3 CLIP


There was a time I thought I'd reached the end, my life was done.

The only thing I cared about was being more than one.

I was feeling down until you came along and sang your song.
The magic in your eyes, it gave me life.

And for a time my life was good
And I finally understood

What it was to have someone to love, to hold.

But is love supposed to last?
Does the curtain fall too fast?

No one told me love can be so cold.

When the kisses went away I thought I'd never see that day.
But when I'm feeling lonely I just wish that you would stay.

When I try to make you smile you just make a funny face.
Do you have somebody waiting in the wings to take my place?

Should I take you home again?
I don't want you to pretend

That it's me you see when all the lights are low.

Am I coming on too strong?
Am I doing something wrong?

I think it's best that you should let me know.

They call it love, a two way street.
 But one side is getting re-paved

The Yellow lines and traffic signs can tell us where to go
But if the world was really limitless there wouldn't be a road.

And when the night falls over all the streets that we will take
I know that I'll find happiness in every choice you make.

Should I take you home again?
I don't want you to pretend

That it's me you see when all the lights are low.

Is this love supposed to last?
Does the curtain fall too fast?

No one told me love can be so cold.

 

Hot and Cold Baby
Words and Music by Richie Castellano


First time I saw you baby

I smiled nice at you

You winked your pretty eyes

And you smiled back at me too

But when you get attention

You look the other way

Your attitude is changing with the changes of the day

(Chorus)
You're my Hot and Cold Baby

You're always changing your mind.

Love my Hot and Cold Baby

Cause' she loves me half the time

I took you out to dinner
I took you to a show

I spent a lot of money

And I ain't got no more

But when I need some lovin'

You give me evil eyes

Yesterday you loved me but today you tell me lies

(Chorus)

Every time I'm with you
You make me sing the blues

You're changing all your stories

Like the headlines in the news

You're running round in circles

You make wanna cry.

You said some day you'll love but you'll never tell me why

 

Whipped
Words and Music by Richie Castellano

Every time I see you, I try to forget,
the pain that I will let confuse me.

Before you start to cry, don't mind me asking why,

my pockets are empty but my heart is full.

This happened once before when you came knocking on my door, and this wasn't so long ago.
You gave me a big rush, and then you made me blush, but all you want is some of my dough.

I wake up in the morning, looking forward to my day,
and then she starts to say I took your wallet.

My credit cards were gone, the home shopping club was on,

I stopped her before she could call it.

You drove me nuts before, and I just can't take no more. I'm telling you, you better try to stop it.
You drew the last straw when I saw you on the floor, looking for the loose change in my pocket.

I work till' ten to three, and then she says to me,
I don't think you're working you're with someone else.

Now Im gonna try, to go and say goodbye,

I guess it's not so bad living by myself.

Now I am a man, and I just can't raise a hand, to someone who's giving me pain.
I'm leaving for today and there's nothing you can say, to keep me from going insane.

 

The Queen
Words and Music by Richie Castellano

FULL MP3

Maybe you're right
Maybe I try

Too hard just to let you know I care

And I'll be there

But I see through your accusations

I've resisted all temptation

Can you say the same?

Can there be another reason

For your sudden change of season

The sun is warm but winter's always cold.

ooh ohh The Queen is now unhappy
And I guess you didn't do your job that well

ooh ooh Where did you go wrong?

I guess there's no way I could know

She wouldn't tell.

I wanted to shout
The day I found out

That you don't have any feelings anymore

Just slam the door

And leave your problem in the car

I'm driving fast but I can't get too

Far from your voice

Telling me that it's not fair

That every note I write with care

Shows the way I feel when I'm with you

ooh ohh The Queen is now unhappy
And I guess you didn't do your job that well

ooh ooh Where did you go wrong?

I guess there's no way I could know

She wouldn't...

Tell me that the end was near
Or say the words I'd love to hear

The queen never gives her heart away

I started to fear
The whispers I hear.

I should have seen it come a mile away.

But now I'll say

I've realized your true intentions

I guess that you forgot to mention

You felt this way

Climbing up your social scale

There's lot of room for me to fail

But thing don't ever turn out like you plan.

ooh ohh The Queen is now unhappy
And I guess you didn't do your job that well

ooh ooh Where did you go wrong?

I guess there's no way I could know

She wouldn't tell.

 

Bring Me Home

Words by Richie Castellano
Music by Andrew Ascolese and Richie Castellano

MP3 CLIP


Watching the world go by.

Thinking about the time.

When everyone around you sees your face.

No one will ever know
The distance you will go.

Watching the world around in disgrace.

Leaving your notes around.
Nobody hears a sound.

Taking your chance to motion forward.

If you look into my eyes
You'll see yourself beyond the tears.

If question should arise.

Your looking through the many years

That your voices were inside me
and I tried to keep them in

but I put it all behind me

Cause I knew I'd never win.

The sunset will bring me home to find you.
I'm never far away.

I took me quite a while.
I'm crying but it isn't loud.

I see it in your smile.

You wash away the darkest clouds.

But you never seem to notice
what I think of you inside

But I put it all behind me

as I watch the world go by with you.

The sunset will bring me home to find you.
I see it everyday.

I am the one who stands before you
I take honesty and love to be

the secret of the universal chains between us.

I'm looking for a better life
You can provide it for me.

Don't you walk away from the truth that goes on inside you.

The sunset can bring me home to find you.
There has to be a way.

Why do I do this to myself?
I can forget so quickly.

Why must every path I follow

End in broken hearts and sadness?

You think in circles like the world
I watch with eyes of patience.

No one hears a sound

No one hears a sound!

Take a look around!

The convenience of you memory seems to suit you
In the world you walk on.

How am I supposed to find the truth

Within the love you give the world.

The Sunset will bring me home without you.
That's all that I can say.

 

1. Anything & Everything
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

She’s got a rhythm, to the way she walks
you better listen, to the way she talks
she’s a one way ticket to broken heart
she’s the leading lady with just the part for you.

she’s got a lover, keeps him on the side
your just another, for her foolish pride
she will be the reason your heart stops beating
she’ll be the twitch you got in your eye

But there’s always one thing you can count on
You will never ever have a dull day in your life

She’s a teaser she’s a pleaser she’s a certified deciever
always gets her man, and that’s for sure.
She’s a saint and she’s a sinner just as long as you buy dinner
she’ll be anything and everthing to you.

she’s got a reason for the way she is
she’s got a lifestyle, but she don’t live by it
she’s got a lock on her heart and there aint no key
she’s got a chip on her shoulder and she calls it me

But there’s always one thing you can count on
You will never ever have a dull day in your life

She’s a teaser she’s a pleaser she’s a certified deciever
always gets her man, and that’s for sure.
She’s a saint and she’s a sinner just as long as you buy dinner
she’ll be anything and everything to you.

 

2. Love Songs
(A. Ascolese/R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

All of my life
I’ve been this way
constantly searching for things I should say

It’s a reaction
to this attraction
my mind goes empty and my thoughts go astray

words can’t describe
all these emotions
I drop my lines to the fish in the ocean

And while their sinking
I get to thinking
Is there a better way to show my devotion

Is it any wonder that the curse that I’ve been under
was lifted when you entered my life
I’m gonna sing to you baby

I, I wanna sing you love songs
I just wanna sing you love songs
I, I wanna sing you love songs

I just wanna sing
want you to listen
my song is more than just huggin’ and kissin’ you

I’ve had a hole
deep in my soul
I figured out it was you I been missin’

Is it any wonder that the curse that I’ve been under
was lifted when you entered my life
I’m gonna sing to you (baby)

I, I wanna sing you love songs
I just wanna sing you love songs
I, I wanna sing you love songs

Is it any wonder that the curse that I’ve been under
was lifted when you entered my life
I’m gonna sing to you

I, I wanna sing you love songs
I just wanna sing you love songs
I, I wanna sing you love songs

4. Falling Under
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

She packed her bags and went away
Guess she was tired of waitng
Now we have nothing left to say
I didn’t know she would hate me

She left a note by the nintendo
Said she was tired of games
She threw my records out the window
What was she trying to say

I never treated her the way that she treated me
I didn’t want her to leave
And now I’m lonely and it’s all because of me
And now I finally see.

I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you
I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you

I called her house and got no answer
I guess she isn’t around
where would she go where would she run to
if she don’t wanna be found

I never treated her the way that she treated me
I didn’t want her to leave
And now I’m lonely and it’s all because of me
And now I finally see.

I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you
I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you

I never treated you the way that you treated me
I didn’t want you to leave
And now I’m lonely and it’s all because of me
And now I finally see.

I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you
I’m falling under, falling over
I’m falling under, falling over you

 

5. So Glad
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I was messed up, miserable and hated myself
So I took out all my problems on everybody else
I was selfish, helpless living like a shellfish
Drowning, bound to bring the people all around me down

So I booked me an ego trip with no destination
My heart was closed for business and my brain was on vacation
I raised the white flag sight gag, name tag: Official Drag
Ending everything, surrendering to steady descent

So when you tell me that you don’t know what you do for me
I just smile all the while wishing that you could see

I’m so glad I found you
'Cause I was lost without you
I want to spend my life around you
'Cause I’d be lost without you.

And how this happened is a mystery I must confess
I was preparing for the worst and for once I got the best
It took my life by storm, it was transformed, opened doors
of possibilities, no more hostilities, only you and me

So when you tell me that you don’t know what you do for me
I just smile all the while wishing that you could see

I’m so glad I found you
'Cause I was lost without you
I want to spend my life around you
'Cause I’d be lost without you

You don’t even know just what you mean to me
I will do my best to try and make you see
Every dream I ever had is finally real
I finally feel what happiness is meant to be
And all the time you were the key

So when you tell me that you don’t know what you do for me
I just smile all the while wishing that you could see

I’m so glad I found you
'Cause I was lost without you
I want to spend my life around you
'Cause I’d be lost without you

 

6. The Girl Next Door
(R. Castellano/A. Ascolese)

MP3 CLIP

Every night you sleep beside me
And these two walls in between us can’t confine me

Do you see me when I walk by you
You’re so hard to resist, do you know I exist
When I’m walking right beside you

I fell in love with the girl next door
She’s all I need, she’s all I live for
I fell in love like never before
I fell in love with the girl next door

I threw my heart into your window
You were laughing, you were smiling, you called me sweet
I poured my soul out on your doorstep
I was standing there feeling unprepared when I got lost in your stare

I fell in love with the girl next door
She’s all I need, she’s all I live for
I fell in love like never before
I fell in love with the girl next door

Girl next door…
Girl next door…

I fell in love with the girl next door
She’s all I need, she’s all I live for
I fell in love like never before
I fell in love with the girl next door

7. Top Drawer to the Left
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

There’s a place in my desk where I keep certain things
And they conjure up visions of my failed dreams
If I find an old picture I don’t want to see
It goes in the desk where I hide things from me

There’s a yearbook picture of a girl I once new
I should throw it away but that’s too hard to do
she smiles up at me when I open the drawer
I think of a love that can happen no more

Just give me one wish
I would go back through time and regret what I find
And all these dreams are in the top drawer to the left

She could tear you in two with the look in her eyes
when she smiles you forget about all of her lies
when it’s good it’s the only place I wanna be
but it doesn’t take long 'till you’re back on your knees

You run back a bit blinder than you were before
with your heart in your hand showing up at her door
you forget about all the times, all the tears, all the years
passing you by like a bird in the sky

Just give me one wish
I would go back through time and regret when I find that I’m wrong
And All these dreams are in the top drawer to the left

There’s a place in my desk where I keep certain things
That I hide from the world I don’t want them to see
That long ago I was a fool in her eyes
I wanna feel foolish again one last time

Just give me one wish
I would go back through time and regret what I find I still love her
And All these dreams are in the top drawer to the left

9. Perfect
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

You’re so perfect, you’re the perfect girl
and your living in the perfect world
all I do it stare, you don’t even know I’m there
‘cause you’re perfect
so damn perfect

You’re so perfect with your perfect hair
and the way you dress with so much care
you’re so in, I’m so out
and that’s all your about when you’re perfect
so damn perfect

When I’m alone, I look into your eyes
I can see my reflection, I can see through all your lies
you’ve been around, every town across the nation,
and it’s only getting worse since you’ve gone to syndication

You’re so perfect with your perfect friends
in mediocrity they’re perfect tens
now I wont pretend that I can be like them
‘cause they’re perfect
so damn perfect

and when I break that glass
we’ll be alone at last
we’ll be perfect
so damn perfect

When I’m alone, I look into your eyes
I can see my reflection, I can see through all your lies
you’ve been around, every town across the nation,
and it’s only getting worse since you’ve gone to syndication

You’re so perfect that it makes me sad
Never wanted someone quite so bad
You’ve given me a reason to survive another season
and I never left home when you were in your coma
oh I’ve been so lost since they killed you off
you were perfect so damn perfect

10. Someone Like You
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I don't wanna be your best friend
I don't wanna be your sunday movie partner
I don't wanna get hurt again
I don't wanna be your long lost older brother

If only I could find a way
through all the little games you play
and it breaks my heart to hear you say

Why can't I find someone like you as sweet and kind as you
it always seems to turn out the same way
Why can't I find someone like you a person I can talk to
someone like you I'll find someone like you

I don't wanna give you advice
I don't wanna hear all your problems like an 800 hotline
I don't really care who you like
I don't care if Billy's got a car or Bob's got a nose job

You never seem to think of me
how happy ever after we¹d be
and still I mask my pride when you ask me

Why can't I find someone like you as sweet and kind as you
it always seems to turn out the same way
Why can't I find someone like you a person I can talk to
someone like you I'll find someone like you

I don't think you know what it's like
to have you sit here beside me with your head on my shoulder
then I think tonight is the night when you'll finally look in my eyes and you'll ask me to kiss you

but now I know that's all in my head
we just sit here instead
all alone on your parents bed
I finally lose my mind, I walk outside to her surprise
I just can't take this any more

Why can't I find somebody new
Not someone blind like you
it always seems to turn out the same way
Why can't I find someone like you as sweet and kind as you
someone like you
someone like you
someone like you I'll find someone like you

11. Black Suit
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

My black suit hangs up in my closet
Way in the back out of the way
I never wanted to put it on
But now it seems like I wear it every day

Mom and dad all dressed in black
Trying to hold their teardrops back
But it won’t do them no good
No one knows what they should say
To a family broken up this way
I’m sorry
Oh, so sorry

Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna feel this pain in my heart
Never wanna cry these tears in my eyes
Never wanna wear this black suit again

My black suit lays under my bed somewhere
Crumpled up into a ball
I never wanna wear that black suit again
But then another old friend calls

Ironing the wrinkles out
I think about a life without him
Steam drops from my face
Everybody walks around
The black suit starts to wear me down
I’m sorry, oh, so sorry…

Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna feel this pain in my heart
Never wanna cry these tears in my eyes
Never wanna wear this black suit again

I try to think about a time
When these thoughts never crossed my mind
I was so happy then, I was so free
Now my hearts locked up in chains
Afraid to feel, afraid of pain
But pain is life but now it’s over, over

Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna wear this black suit again

My black suit hangs up in my closet
Stained with death to dark to see
It hangs there like a cloud of sadness
It rains in tears upon the sleeves

Every day it’s more bad news
And time to put on my black suit
I can’t put it away
Say a prayer for those who passed
And hope that this will be the last
I’m sorry, oh, so sorry

Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna feel this pain in my heart
Never wanna cry these tears in my eyes
Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna wear this black suit again
Never wanna wear this black suit again

 

12. I'll Get Up Again
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I’ll get up, I’ll get up, kick me down, I’ll get up again

Jimmy was a pimple faced fat kid from long island
He was your typical nerd
He wore tight white jeans and taped up glasses
with streaks of blood on his shirt

Jimmy was the master of the trivia games
just like you see on TV
And when they held auditions at the smithtown mall
he just couldn’t be beat

He got a two way ticket to an LA sound stage
America’s favorite game
He played against a pink haired pin-up from a magazine
She couldn’t spell her own name

They asked Jimmy what’s the distance from the earth to the sun
then they asked her when the 10 o’clock news comes on

I’ll get up, I’ll get up, kick me down, I’ll get up again
Something’s up, Something’s up, going down, I’ll get up again

They asked him ten more questions that they thought he couldn’t answer
Jimmy answered them all.
And when she got one wrong they gave her extra chances
guess Jimmy’s taking a fall

And in the lightning round his buzzer wasn’t working
He had no chance to complain
She got her grand prize, now she’s in the semi finals
America’s favorite game

He couldn’t understand the fortune he was dealt
And he kept it all inside as he said to himself

I’ll get up, I’ll get up, kick me down, I’ll get up again
Something’s up, Something’s up, going down, I’ll get up again

Innocence was lost the day they took away from him
Robbed and cheated not defeated, made a stronger man
In a way i gues you’d say the worst was yet to come
Jimmy said he’s guess revenge they don’t know what they’ve done.

I’ll get up, I’ll get up, kick me down, I’ll get up again

He got arrested selling consolation prizes to the public
Instant rice, board game, year’s supply of lies and shame

I’ll get up, I’ll get up, kick me down, I’ll get up again
Something’s up, Something’s up, going down, I’ll get up again

 

13. Diary
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

You said your parents aren’t home
And finally we can be alone.
And suddenly you hear the phone
so I wait

I’m sitting in your family room
while you’re talking to the intruder
I look for anything to do
while I wait

I saw this book without a label
Sitting on your coffee table
readling like a church confession
saying I’m your new obsession

Ever since I read your diary
I feel like you’ve been conspiring
Wish I never found your diary at all

Page One’s about the day we met
with details that you should forget
you make it sound like it’s the first day
of your life

you list all of my qualities
in bad romantic poetry
you make it sound like we should be
husband and wife

and every day I didn’t call
you’d throw your phone against the wall
suddenly I’m feeling wary
this little book begins to scare me

Ever since I read your diary
I feel like you’ve been conspiring
Wish I never found your diary at all

Ever since I read your diary
seems like more than just admiring
Wish I never found your diary at all

maybe it’s not that bad
maybe I’m jumping to conclusions
maybe this lock of hair isn’t mine
yes it is, this girl’s insane

Then suddenly you’re off the phone
I realize we’re all alone
Trying to plan my escape
but now you’re back, now it’s too late

Ever since I read your diary
I feel like you’ve been conspiring
Wish I never found your diary at all

Ever since I read your diary
seems like more than just admiring
Wish I never found your diary at all

14. No Good For You
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

I’m no good for you, I’m no good for you
and no matter what I do, still I’m no good for you

I’m no good for you, I’m no good for you
with all that we’ve been through, still I’m no good for you

But I’d do anything you wanted just to keep you to myself
I would climb up to the heavens, I would walk the fired of hell
just to be with you, just to be with you

I’m too good for you, I’m too good for you
and no matter what you do, still I’m too good for you

I’m no good for you, I’m no good for you
with all that we’ve been through, still I’m no good for you

But I’d do anything you wanted just to keep you to myself
I would climb up to the heavens, I would walk the fired of hell
just to be with you, just to be with you

I know it’s wrong, but it feels so right to be holding you tight
on a night like this
I’d dissappear, but I wont go away when you want me to stay
right here by my side

I’d do anything you wanted just to keep you to myself

just to be with you, just to be with you

I’m no good for you, I’m no good for you
and no matter what I do, still I’m no good for you

But I’d do anything you wanted just to keep you to myself
I would climb up to the heavens, I would walk the fired of hell
just to be with you, just to be with you
just to be with you, just to be with you

16. Gone
(R. Castellano)

MP3 CLIP

All this time has passed me by
no one told me it would end
so much time to question why
and live the memories again

but there’s just something that I
It’s just something that I
can’t put into words
no I could never tell another what she meant to me
she’s gone away

She’s Gone
and now I need her more
through heaven’s open door
is where she wanted to be free

I think of times when we were together
I think of times we laughed and cried
And all the memories, I’ll have forever
In my heart and in my mind

but there’s just something that I
it’s just something that I
keep inside my mind
I think about her all the time oh since she’s gone away
she’s gone away

She’s Gone
and now I need her more
through heaven’s open door
is where she wanted to be free

In my dreams I try to talk to you
can you hear the things I say
will I see you in another place
another day, I’ll find a way
and when I see you it will be forever
will you wait for me till then
will I see you once again

I see your face in pictures on the wall
my favorite images of you

But I wont cry, cause deep inside, I know your with me
You’re in the good things that I do

but there’s just something that I
It’s just something that I
can’t put into words
no I could never tell another what she meant to me
she’s gone away

She’s Gone
and now I need her more
through heaven’s open door
is where she wanted to be free

2. I Need To Know For Sure
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

Will you hear me out?
Will you judge, will you doubt?
I need to know for sure
I need to know for sure
I need to know for sure

Will you hold me close?
Never let me fall?
I need to know for sure
I need to know for sure
I need to know for sure

I want to make you see
A different side of me
Surrounded by a darkness born of everything I fear

Now you see what I've become
Can you really be the one?
To save me from a loveless life, so many wasted years

Would you live a lie?
Keeping secrets to save my life?
I need to know for sure
I need to know for sure
I need to know

3. No One Needs To Know
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

Can you keep a secret,
Just between you and I?
What if you couldn't keep it,
Would you live your life a lie?

Could you keep a secret,
From everybody that you know?
I wanna tell you so bad that it's driving me mad
But you can never tell another soul

No one needs to know
It's just between you and I
No one needs to know
It's the only thing that you desire
No one needs to know
It's everything you'll ever need
It's just between you and me

Can you keep a secret,
Not the kind that you can tell?
You never could repeat it
You'd have to take it straight to hell

I know that this secret
Is something you would want to know
I wanna tell you so bad that it's driving me mad
But you can never tell another soul

No one needs to know
It's just between you and I
No one needs to know
It's the only thing that you desire
No one needs to know
It's everything you'll ever need
It's just between you and me

 

4. Tokyo Nights
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

Behind a closed door in the alley
An image you're not meant to see
The businessmen with all their power and money
They beg for a small piece of me

You wait for me out on the corner
And every night I never show
You put yourself through all this torture and pain
This fantasy's all that you know

The picture you're painting is something that I'll never be
Your geisha in training, your lady in waiting
A prisoner of your fantasy

The skyline screams with neon lights
My spirit is calling out for these Tokyo nights
The city streets, they hold me tight
That's where I'll be waiting, out on these Tokyo nights.

You think you can stare through a window
And understand all that you see
A beautiful stranger surrounded by danger
Is this what you want me to be?

The picture you're painting is something that I'll never be
This place where you found me where shadows surround me
Is everything I'll ever be

The skyline screams with neon lights
My spirit is calling out for these Tokyo nights
The city streets, they hold me tight
That's where I'll be waiting, out on these Tokyo nights.

The picture you're painting is something that I'll never be
Your geisha in training, your lady in waiting
A prisoner of your fantasy

The skyline screams with neon lights
My spirit is calling out for these Tokyo nights
The city streets, they hold me tight
That's where I'll be waiting, out on these Tokyo nights.

 

5. Believe In The Sword
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

Give me an army and I will take command
Give me the order and I will take a stand
Show me your rival and I will make him bleed
When it’s survival there’s no room for defeat

Call on your soldiers, we’ll do your dirty deeds
Call us to battle, we’ll bring you victory
Bury your problems with slashing silver blades
Live as a hero and enjoy your masquerade

But don’t tell me it’s right.
I’m bound to obey you,
Fight who you want me to fight

Believe in the sword
And all your enemies will fall before you
Believe in the sword
And all your wicked demons crawl before you

Show me a fortress and I will bring it down
Show me a village, I’ll burn it to the ground
I’m just the weapon, a sword for you to hold
And when you command me, the blood stains on us both

But don’t tell me it’s right.
I’m bound to obey you
Fight who you want me to fight

Believe in the sword
And all your enemies will fall before you
Believe in the sword
And all your wicked demons crawl before you

6. Runaways
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

I used to fade into the background
I was dismissed and I was pushed around
Thought if I disappeared that no one would care
They’d be completely unaware

So I packed my bags and made my way out the door
And I saw a thing I never witnessed before
There was a waiting line as far as I could see
An army of people like me

Whoa
Just another runaway with who nobody knows
Whoa
Just another runaway with nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

And for a moment I was finally free
With no regrets and no more misery
The road ahead was paved with ignorant bliss
So I walked into the abyss

Whoa
Just another runaway with who nobody knows
Whoa
Just another runaway with nowhere to go
Just another runaway so far from my home

I started running with a dangerous crowd
I tried to leave but I was not allowed
And when I got away they followed me home

Whoa
Just another runaway with who nobody knows
Whoa
Just another runaway with nowhere to go
Just another runaway so far from my home
Just another runaway with nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

7. Children of the Sun 
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

It was the darkest night that I ever remember
I saw my brothers on the field whither and die
I had to run away in shame to escape capture
Swore my allegiance to the God of light
I will forever stand and fight for you

Formed my legions under banners of the sun God
We’ll never fight against the darkness all alone
He will protect us when he rises in the east sky
There’ll be no shadow left to hide
Vengeance for the ones who died by you

No one can stand against the children of the sun
Follow me and I will light the way
No rest for warriors until the war is won
He we are the children of the sun

Children of the sun

And in the east they’ll see the sun God in his glory
But we’ll look west and see the shadow demons fall
They’ll think us wizards casting curses on they’re senses
It all depends on where we stand
There’s no magic in this plan at all

No one can stand against the children of the sun
Follow me and I will light the way
No rest for warriors until the war is won
He we are the children of the sun

Children of the sun

We can overcome them if the light is in their eyes
Wait until the night turns into day
Our blades will turn lighting when the sun is at our back
The armies of the dark will fade away

We felt the ground shake as their men all charged together
We drew our swords and saw his signal in the sky
He pushed the clouds aside like they were feathers
A ray of light shot from the sun
Blinded all the evil ones we fight

No one can stand against the children of the sun
Follow me and I will light the way
No rest for warriors until the war is won
He we are the children of the sun

Children of the sun

8. Der Hölle Rache Kocht In Meinem Herzen
(W.A. Mozart)

MP3 Clip

[Original German Text]
Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
fühlt nicht durch dich Sarastro Todesschmerzen,
so bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr.

Verstoßen sei auf ewig,
verlassen sei auf ewig,
zertrümmert sei'n auf ewig
alle Bande der Natur
wenn nicht durch dich Sarastro wird erblassen!
Hört, Rachegötter, hört der Mutter Schwur!

[English Translation]
The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart,
Death and despair flame about me!
If Sarastro does not through you feel
The pain of death,
Then you will be my daughter nevermore.
Disowned may you be forever,
Abandoned may you be forever,
Destroyed be forever
All the bonds of nature,
If not through you
Sarastro becomes pale! (as death)
Hear, Gods of Revenge,
Hear a mother's oath!

9. Hero Lies
(R. Castellano)

MP3 Clip

I see all of their faces
When I close my eyes
These souls they come to haunt me
From a restless afterlife

For the greater good and the glory,
For you children and your wives
He promised the people a life of peace
For a moment’s sacrifice

He’s the key to success
He’s the heavenly blessed
He is warrior, hero and liar
He’s a leader of men who he cannot defend
From a fate they so deeply desire

He is the one!

A Hero Lies on the backs of those he sent to die
A Hero Lies to the faces who never ask him why
A Hero Lies to himself and everyone with every breath
A Hero Lies in bed with death

So much pain I have witnessed
As idly, I stood by
When I gave in I joined in his sin
And I’ll burn there by his side

So forgive me for my betrayal
As my conscience takes control
As my solemn vow I will stop him now
To destroy his evil soul

He’s the key to success
He’s the heavenly blessed
He is warrior, hero and liar
He’s a  leader of men who he cannot defend
From a fate they so deeply desire

He is the one!

A Hero Lies on the backs of those he sent to die
A Hero Lies to the faces, who never ask him why
A Hero Lies to himself and everyone with every breath
A Hero Lies in bed with death

10. Mother Of Dragons
(A.M. Nacchio)

MP3 Clip

You watch the skies, the fire's all around you
There's nowhere left to hide

The fear inside is starting to surround you
You're running for your life

The mother of dragons has got you dead in her sights
Your flesh is now forfeit, your body is hers dead to rights

Mother of Dragons
Riding on her wings into the night
Mother of Dragons
No can escape her deadly flight

You realize there's nowhere to outrun her
Once she's got your scent

You feel her breath warm upon your shoulder
Your life's already spent

Mother of Dragons
Riding on her wings into the night
Mother of Dragons
No can escape her deadly flight

The mother of dragons is saving her fire for you
Clenched in her talons, your darkest nightmare's come true

Mother of Dragons
Riding on her wings into the night
Mother of Dragons
No can escape her deadly flight

11. Oblivion
(R. Castellano, A.M. Nacchio, A. Ascolese)

MP3 Clip

Crawling through the darkness
Burning from the light
The screams of dreams take over me
To weak to even fight

When all has been forgotten
Just like someone else's past
The memories come back to me
To seek revenge at last

Call me the heretic, the skeptic and the fool
Or just a lunatic, a victim of the rules
Why can't I find my peace of mind?

Oblivion is where I wanna be
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion, a world to set you free
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion!

The dream is finally over
The memories flood in
Drowning in a pool of sin
My real test begins

Could you confront your demons
After everything you've learned
Could you lose yourself in a private hell
Where you may never return

Call me the heretic, the skeptic and the fool
Or just a lunatic, a victim of the rules
Why can't I find my peace of mind?

Oblivion is where I wanna be
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion, a world to set you free
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion!

Oblivion is where I wanna be
I wanna be free
In another world
My home
Take me to my home
My home

Call me the heretic, the skeptic and the fool
Or just a lunatic, a victim of the rules
Why can't I find my peace of mind?

Oblivion is where I wanna be
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion, a world to set you free
Oblivion, my home
Oblivion!
