Our name and our reputation – Is a legend of this time and all time

They say that no one does it better – because we’re giving you the most, we blow your mind…

And the name of the game is show no shame and never have no fear

[Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five]

Love, electricity, shockwave central – Power on the motherboard – Push up, overload, legendary heavy glow

Sunshine, thunder roll, keep this on – the lantern burn, burn that easy – And broadcast, so raw and neatly

Thunder roll, sunshine, work it out – Overload, … 

Go forth, blossom in your soul – When you know your heart is light – Electric is the love

When the mako flies up from the bottom in your eyes – Then I know the twilight skies are not so broken hearted

If its love is electric – It’ll be flowing on the streets – Night after night – Just to get through the week

Sometimes it’s hard – Right now – Sing yourself out of depression, rise above

Always searching if I know your heart – Electric is the love – There’s only one way – Let it pray a little while longer

It’s got a way of passing through man and woman – I In another world, in the universe


I see you, you see me – Watch you blowing the lines when you’re making a scene

… you’ve got to know – What my head overlooks, the senses will show – To my heart, when it’s watching for lies

You can’t escape my – Private eyes – They’re watching you – They see your every move

You play with words, you play with love – You can twist it around that ain’t enough

Because I’m going to know – If you’re letting me in or letting me go – Don’t lie when you’re hurting inside

Cause you can’t escape my – Private eyes

Why you try to put up a front for me? – I’m a spy but on your side, you see

Slip on into any disguise – I’ll still know you, look into my – Private eyes

[Towa Tei]

Don’t want to listen – Don’t pretend to be deaf – I love the chaos – It loves my head – Bet you don’t want to know where I’ve been

Hard to take in that the battle’s been won – Want to be a misfit in a gentleman’s song – A bullet that explodes in the gun’s magazine

Listen through the dark – I’ll find out where you are – Listening through the dark  – Watch you from a far

Do you hear that sound? – The sharpening knives – Maybe a lie  – but I’m dead inside – The snake charmer man – He’s a beautiful friend

Hard to take in that the battle’s not done 

[Erik Truffaz]

There are so many things that I don’t understand – There’s a world within me that I cannot explain

Many rooms to explore, but the doors look the same – I am lost, I can’t even remember my name

[Daft Punk]

Swimming the same deep water as you is hard – The shallow drowned lose less than we  – The strangest twist upon your lips

And we shall be together

Kiss me goodbye bow your head and join with me – And face pushed deep, reflections meet – The strangest twist upon your lips

And disappear, the ripples clear – And laughing break against your feet – And laughing break the mirror sweet

So we shall be together

Kiss me goodbye – Pushing out before I sleep – It’s lower now, and slower now – The strangest twist upon your lips

But I don’t see, and I don’t feel – But tightly hold up silently – My hands before my fading eyes – And in my eyes your smile

The very last thing before I go – I will kiss you – And we shall be together

[The Cure]

There was a boy

A very strange, enchanted boy – They say he wandered very far – Very far, over land and sea

A little shy and sad of eye – But very wise was he

And then one day – One magic day he passed my way – And while we spoke of many things – Fools and kings

This he said to me: – “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn – Is just to love and be loved in return”

[David Bowie]
