Track Name: Living In Oblivion
Living In Oblivion

You can't hide the pain
I can see it scrawled on your empty face
And I feel the hurt
It's in the words you say, they make me want to

Scream out to the world
For taking life for granted and I know
You are by my side
When I turn to hear you cry

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Am I so blind?
With my eyes turned to a different time or hour
At the end of the day
When we both run down and our hopes are heavy

Tell me what you will
'Cause I've got to know the truth inside of you
Can you hear what I say
When I hold you and you scorn the day?

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Living in oblivion
Living in oblivion

So I ask again
Am I so alone and full of pride?
To never speak out
This is my world, this is my world

Don't tell me now
I won't feel those words, I won't feel the lies they tell
Can you hear my scream?
It's for everyone, for everyone

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Living in oblivion
Living in oblivion

Track Name: When We Lie
When We Lie

I look to you
And I see that you're aware
I feel as though
You can see what's deep inside

Do you ever feel the need
For the honesty in what you see?
Do you ever want to know
What's in store for you and me?

When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine


I have never seen
The honesty in some people's minds
Only in you
Did I ever find some thing inside

The loneliness and the broken dreams
That's what we're going to share
Everything that is in your face
I will recognize with time

When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine

Everything that is in your face
I will recognize with time (when we lie)
Everything that you've ever done
You will do to me

When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time
The future's mine

Track Name: Kiss Of Love
Kiss Of Love

I felt the Sun on me
Made me see something I can't explain
Something in the wind calling my name
How is it possible?
I don't know
I don't know

When I held your hand
The same emotion enveloped me
Bizarre as it may seem
I thought I heard somebody say

Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's real, these emotions we feel
Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's true when it happens to you

When I think of you
The world takes new meaning and so does my life
Seems like paradise
Hopelessly, you and me at peace

I love you
I love everything
I love you
I love everything

Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's real, these emotions we feel
Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's true when it happens to you

Feel

Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's real, these emotions we feel
Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's true when it happens to you
Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's real, these emotions we feel
Feel the kiss of love
Know that it's true when it happens to you

Track Name: Jubilation
Jubilation

Every time I close my eyes
I hide behind the blackened lies
That follow me
Throughout my history

The lives I've touched, the things I've done
The things I know will never come
Get washed away
In my happiness

And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life
And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life

Moving on was hard to do
To leave the things that I once knew
Childhood is the one thing
That won't come back to me

How can I sit idly by
Watching all these hours denied?
My name is all I have
For an offering

And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life
And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life

Built-up walls that crumbled down
People marched and stood their ground
I saw it happen
It was part of me

And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life
And, oh
When you feel stranded
Don't take for granted
This thing called life

Don't take for granted

Track Name: Soul On Fire
Soul On Fire

Here I am, all alone
All alone with empty hopes
Here I ran, all alone
All alone within myself

My heart is on fire
My soul will burn
My heart is on fire
My soul will burn

Here I lay, all alone
All alone within myself
Here I ran, all alone
All alone to sit and wait

My heart is on fire
My soul will burn
My heart is on fire
My soul will burn

My heart is on fire
My soul will burn
My heart is on fire
My soul will burn

If this should leave me now
If only I could walk
Yes, I remember a place so far away
Is there nothing I can say?
The words have died away
(Words)

My heart is on fire
My soul will burn

Claude S. (1990)
Track Name: Our Dreams
Our Dreams

When we were growing up
We wanted to become
The special people
In this lonely, broken place

And after all the years have gone
Only a few of us
Ever reached our goals
Some of us are still trying hard

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Our ambitions are sacred to us
They keep us moving forward in our lives
You don't have the right to make it die in us
You don't have the right to destroy

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

To the governments of the world
To greed, to anger
To war, to hatred
To racism, to religion
To disease, to destruction
To the bombs, to confusion
To reality, to the jealousy
To the governments of the world

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

That's all we wanted was to have our dream
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Track Name: Carmen
Carmen

There was a girl who used to live
At the grey house by the bridge
At the edge of the empty world

Carmen's the name
That evokes the fear and shame
From the people that she left behind

She had the spirit
To live her life so free
Although many people wanted to clip her wings

She ran away
She broke away the chains
That they wrapped around her heart

The people said, 'out of all the things she's done
The worst one was just leaving without saying goodbye'
The people said, 'out of all the things she's done
The worst one was just leaving without saying goodbye'


Carmen, the voices cry out
Carmen, the voices die out
Carmen, the voices cry out
Carmen, the voices die out

Claude S. (1990)
Track Name: Lady In Waiting
Lady In Waiting

Hush hush, hurry into the dark room
And try to forget the words
They seep into your head

The rules are broken tonight
They can't haunt you anymore
Tonight

On a silver platter
How hard I found the words
And still, I carry the hurt

It was too hard to see
And it drove inside of me
I can't stand to bear the sores
I can't stand you anymore

Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
All the pain I felt
Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
My lady in waiting

Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
All the pain I felt
Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
My lady in waiting

Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
All the pain I felt
Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
My lady in waiting
Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
All the pain I felt
Since the night I left you
Since the night I shared
All of my emotions
My lady in waiting

Paul R. (1990)
Track Name: I Felt The Pain
I felt The Pain

There's been a lot of talking
From the town where I come from
All my friends are saying things
Which make me doubt sincerity

What is the meaning
Of a truth or a lie?
What is the meaning
Of the things we feel inside?

I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)

In looking at your eyes
The feeling of love swells within my soul
Every word that I say
Has no meaning when you turned away

Why do I stay here
When I feel this way?
Why do I need to see you
On my darkest day?

I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)

I can see your little boy
Reminding me of who I was
I can see a little girl
She looks like you

I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)
I felt the pain
(Whenever you smile, whenever you cry)

Claude S. (1990)
Track Name: Hypocrites
Hypocrites

I wanted to show you
That I really loved you so
But you had to go, and I'm not crying
Today, 'cause I know you're smiling
You were the best
And still you shine
Deep inside
Deep in pride

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies

The hypocrites came
And the love was on their faces
Just to think they were here
Because of you
I wanted to tell you
That I really loved you so
But you had to go away
And I'm not crying

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies

The hypocrites came
And the love was on their faces
Just to think they were here
Because of you
I wanted to tell you
That I really loved you so
And still you shine
Deep inside

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies


Claude S. / Nelson Torres (1990)
Track Name: Just One Day
Just One Day

Walking in the morning winds
As I stare up at the clouds
Slowly bring myself to rest
Near a peaceful plain

Hoping and waiting for some sign
Anything will do
I just wander in my soul
In the search for you

You would say
"Please, please just go away
And let your mind forget
About this dreary day."

Just one day in the life of a fool
Just one day in the life of a fool

The afternoon will pass my by
As I reach the wall
That stretches out across the land
That I knew so well

And in a garden there
All the flowers bloom
Reminders of a growing rose
Always full of thorns

You would say
"Please, please don't cry this way"
Slowly turn
As the Moon shows her face

Just one day in the life of a fool
Just one day in the life of a fool
In the life of a fool
In the life of a fool

Darkness drapes itself on me
As I'm heading home
Carrying roses in my hands
I'm thinking of you

How you smiled
And kissed my face
Thought I heard you
I thought I heard you say

Just one day in the life of a fool

Claude S. (1990)
Track Name: All These Hours Undone
All These Hours Undone

Blackbirds dance among the roses
On the garden walls
They are like the passers-by
On the nameless street

All these hours undone

Sounds of sandals on the curbstones
Echo in my head
Oh, the lathe of love has dwindled
In the end

All these hours undone

I try to avert your love
You brought me tears like rain
With poise and empty gestures
They took their toll

All these hours undone
All these hours undone

Claude, Dania, Paul (1990)
