Unstoppable lyrics

unstoppable

you got a mind use it – let no one abuse it
you got a body know it – you ain’t got to show it if you don’t want to
you got a mind use it – let no one abuse it
you got a body know it – it’s alright to show it just don’t forget
you got a mind

chorus:
(hey there sisters)
come on listen now to what I’ve got to say
(there’s no way to stop us now)
there’s no way to stop us we get stronger every day
(we found our voices)
body soul and mind the strength is inside
(we’re unstoppable)
we’re unstoppable

(hey there sisters)
come on gather round we’ve only just begun
(there’s no way to stop us now)
there’s no way to stop us and that goes for everyone
(we found our voices)
body soul and mind the strength is inside
(we’re unstoppable)
we’re unstoppable
unstoppable

I am no one’s victim
look into my eyes and you will see
I decide, determine my own mind
I won’t let anybody else tell me
what I can do with my body
because in every circumstance
what I choose is my own business
and that I will defend

chorus

I never said I was a saint
but when I say “NO” – “NO” is what I mean to say
set your limit, stand by it
you’re unstoppable
there’s no way to stop us now

no one can keep you
no one man can force you to do anything
no one can rearrange you – no
no one in the world can shame you

you got a mind use it – let no one abuse it
you got a body know it – you ain’t got to show it if you don’t want to
you got a mind use it – let no one abuse it no no no no
you got a body know it – it’s alright to show it just don’t forget
you got a mind

there’s no way to stop us now
we’re getting stronger every day
we’re unstoppable
we’re unstoppable

chorus out

brighter side of day

chorus:
there’s a brighter side of day
somewhere
there’s a brighter side of day
somewhere I know

I used to be pessismistic
I spent the days looking down at my feet
I couldn’t tell you the colour of the sky
– on any given day
I just couldn’t be bothered to try
like golden light in a hurricane
wisdom lives in places strange
a flaming arrow through the dark
hit me like lightning

chorus

when I feel fatalistic
like a tourist in my own home town
(my home town is mighty crazy)
I find a mountain that I know I can climb
(higher and higher)
without ever looking down
a wide eyed child will point at the truth
without the doubts of later youth
you know there’s something in their eyes
that’s filled with wonder

so when you’re feeling down and troubled
(take it in stride there’s got to be a downside)
without it you wouldn’t know
there’s a brighter side of day
so turn your face up and smile when the rain falls
(let it come down and wash away your troubles)
without it you wouldn’t know
there’s a brighter side of day
ooh a brighter side of day

nothing ever is what it seems
I might as well live my dreams
let the winds blow strong
let it rain until the dawn
from darkness there’ll be light
I open my eyes I open my eyes I open my eyes

chorus out

silences

the silences we share
words become unnecessary
and we become aware
of the magnitude of detail in a smile
or a gesture of tenderness

we met a thousand years ago
in another place another time
when love was easier to show
I think we recognized each other in a glance
it only took a moment to understand

I have always dreamed of you
I, I have always believed you would come

you run your fingers through my hair
such a simple indication that we’ve lain our souls bare
there is nothing that could ever come between us
how I melt with your caress

I have always dreamed of you
I, I have always believed you would come into my life
I have always been with you
and now I find you have shown
what my soul has ever longed for
to share my heart my breath my core
with the one I’ve always known

you will be the part of me that never dies
you will be the part of me that learns to fly
you will be the part of me from which I can not hide
you will be forever with me

the silences we share
words become unnecessary and we become aware
of the magnitude of detail
in a smile
or a gesture of tenderness

I have always dreamed of you
I, I have always believed you would come into my life
I have always been with you
and I –
I have always dreamed
I have always dreamed
from a thousand years ago
to a thousand years from now oh I
I have always believed you would come

truth

Pravda podavlynaya k zemlee vostaneet opyatsh
(Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again)

twenty million people died in Stalin’s great terror

sideways up and upside down let me tell you a story ’bout what was found
floating in a river in Siberia you’re not gonna believe this so just hang tough
you see Stalin’s people purged the masses but not like Hitler they didn’t use gasses
they buried bodies in a riverbank many years ago
so many years it was a long enough time to pretend to forget and close your mind
but when the heavy rains came, showed the shame and reclaimed the soil that covered those souls
the ground was frozen for so long that you could still see the clothes that the people had on
the day they were collected, herded like sheep shot in the head and piled in a heap
there they were for the world to see as they tumbled from their misery
alive and kicking to the end
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

about those bodies don’t be surprisedwhen they were found with open eyes
workers caught the corpses and sank them down at the river station one thousand people
only a fragment of twenty million more felled by evil the Cheka, secret police (NKVD NKVD)
the executions, fake trials, and those sent to the labor camps in exile were alive and kicking to the end
but Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

Truth crushed to the earth (byelostomuy)
crushed to the earth shall rise again (Stalinsky)
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again rise again
how many times will we be forgiven
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

there are no crimes in history more terrible
there are no crimes in history more terrible

Trotsky was one of millions killed as Stalin purged party
and people of opposition to his rule
“Stalin’s trial against me is built upon false confession,
extorted by modern pugatorial methods”

don’t have to be loud to be strong
don’t have to be right to be wrong (Stalinsky)
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again
rise again

there are no crimes in history more terrible
there are no crimes in history more terrible
Thousands of bodies of people killed in the great terror
had been discovered in a mass grave outside the town…
twenty thousand people died in Stalin’s great terror…
Forty million people were repressed –
about half of these were executed…
I just fell down on my knees – byelostomuy

so if you’re daring to be different where the safe survive
just remember most important is to stay alive
we’ve got plenty of martyrs, plenty of saints
the best thing you can do is educate
you know it’s more than watch your back jack all the time
because there’s never no rest for the urban survivalist
adapt or die is the law of the street
that’s where you’ll find common ground with your enemy
is it really any different from the stone age life
when we fight before we reason ‘cuz there’s no insight
alive and kicking to the end
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

we don’t need another Stalin
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again
at the rate that we are goin’
Pravda podavlynaya k zemlee vostaneet opyatsh
(Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again)
Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again

no one else

I feel lost
is this me
in a whirlwind of emotion I can’t see
only you can
restore my faith

caught that look
in her eye
she’s checking youthough she knows you’re my guy
but I know you
you deserve my faith

take my hand
I need your embrace
oh tell me

chorus:
no one else will do
(no one)
no other one will do
(no one else will do)
whoa oh no other one
(no one else in your life)
tell me no one else will do
(no one else will do)

in my past
I’ve been torn apart
as if a hand inside my chest was tearing out my heart
all I ask
is reassure my faith

take my hand
I need your embrace
oh tell me

chorus

when you walked into my life
(when you walked into my life)
closed the door on past mistakes
(closed the door on them all)
forgave my weaknesses
but every once in a while
I still feel alone
that’s when I need you most
to tell me once again
there’s no one else

I don’t want my mother I don’t want my father
I don’t want my sister nor my brother I want you
I don’t want a preacher I don’t want a teacher
I don’t want my friends no I only want you

take my hand
I need your embrace
oh tell me

chorus out

right here beside you

baby baby I don’t have the words
baby my baby to make you feel secure
all I can do is to say
I love you yes I do

baby oh baby you’re hurting inside
baby my baby just let go and cry
I’m right here beside you to say
I love you baby oh yea yes I do

chorus:
I’ll be by your side every night and day
(right here beside you)
nothing could keep me away
(nothing could keep me away)
I won’t let you down (no no never)
I will always be around (for forever)
and when you’re afraid
well I’ll be here to say

darling oh now darling
I want you to know
no matter how bad it gets
I’ll never never let you go
I’ll be by your side to say
I love you baby
whoa yea yes I do

chorus

darling oh now darling
I want you to know
no matter how bad it gets
I’ll never never let you go
I’ll be by your side to say
oh babe you know I’ll be by your side to say
oh babe you know I’m right here beside you to say
I love you baby
whoa yea yes I do

(right here beside you)
(right here beside you)
(right here beside you)
(nothing could keep me away)

repeat to end

survive

another day
with no expectations
and you find it don’t make
much of a difference if you love or hate you know
I don’t believe that fate
determines the hereafter
I won’t sit and wait
‘cuz when you hold on to the dock the waves crash anyway

I, I’m gonna live more than survive

it’s getting late
the rising sea of ignorance calls
too many flames
are clutching and grabbing and learning to hate now
the crucial key
trust in your own instincts
don’t believe all you read
but take a good long look at who profits from the greed

I, I’m gonns live more than survive
there’s more to life than struggle
I, I’m gonna live more than survive

I’m gonna live more than survive
I got to know that I’m alive yeah
I’m gonna live more than survive
I got to know that I’m alive

another day
with no expectations
and you find it don’t make
much of a difference if you love or hate you know
the crucial key
trust in your own instincts
don’t believe all you read
but take a good long look at who profits from the greed

I, I’m gonns live more than survive
there’s more to life than struggle
I, I’m gonna live more than survive

I’m gonna live more than survive
I got to know that I’m alive yeah
I’m gonna live more than survive
there’s got to be more to life than the struggle
hey I’m gonna live more than survive
survive

oasis

oasis
you bathe me
I taste this
scent of humility
purify
cleanse me
take my soul
wring it dry

oasis
you hold me
on the precipice
unravelling
sanctify
release me
drowned within you
let me cry

for I was a wounded soldier
when you carried me
I was a rising star
brought down to my knees
I was a lonely winter
overcast and drawn
I was a raging fire
with nowhere left to burn

oasis
you soothe me
discard this
mask of futility
for underneath
I believe
that it’s myself
I deceive

for I was a dying flower
when you watered me
I was a rising star
brought down to my knees

but with your beckoning
I followed you to shelter
where sweet asylum calls
you let the rains come
and covered me with petals
you brought me to life
yes you brought me to life

oasis
you’re vanishing
like a pearl diver
in a wine dark sea
the shimmering illusion
is in my hand now
and all the rest
shifting sand

oasis…

keep me strong

thunder clouds build
on the horizon
the wind speaks in foreign tongue
in this darkening light
restless fear
lingers in the air

I’m a morning dove in flight
looking for sanctuary
a place to rest my wings
but the sky closes in on me
I fly alone in spirals

torn inside
all I want is to heal the fright
I’ve lost my inner guide
yet I believe

chorus:
your love will keep me strong and fearless
when I feel I can’t go on you dry my tears
your love will keep me strong and fearless
when I feel there’s nowhere I belong
your love will keep me strong

in the eye of the storm
your gaze
strips and leaves me bare
I am trapped in a maze
show me how to begin again

torn inside
all I want is to heal the fright
I’ve lost my inner guide
yet I believe

repeat chorus

(Your love will keep me strong)
(Your love will keep me strong)
(Your love will keep me strong)
(Your love will keep me strong) and fearless
You are my sanctuary

justice

in the times of Ancient Greece
the Fates and Furies avenged the wrong
while the goddesses Justice, Order and Peace labored long
these sisters three left by the wayside
our Lady Liberty
is all but forgotton the river smells rotton and no one has the key to

chorus:
Justice
Justice only the few can buy justice

it’s getting harder
to prove that evil succumbs to good
it seems that every day
another famous crime is only celebrated
politricks, lies and holy statements
watch the headlines whip
us into thinking without ever blinking that no one has the key to

chorus

oh is it just enough
I call your bluff
the hole of greed burns every pocket
no more Plato’s ideal
the seven sins have such appeal
in time in time
hold the scales high
the sword will prove the lie
I dare you to deny justice

chorus

as a sign of decency
let’s give credit where credit’s due:
be ever mindful of what your local kingmaker says to you
wooed by slow advance like a carrot on a string
you might think she’s taken in
but don’t be mistaken cuz she won’t be taken this lady’s not a fool

repeat chorus

if it were you would you buy justice

place in this world

outside my window children suffer every day
oh the children
I just turn away
so many newborn souls drifting out to sea
like an empty shell
oh such innocent debris

there’s a think tank in my head
I’d love to have a drink to forget
’cause all I see is this barbed wire fence
and a jailer with my face

chorus:
yes I have a dream
a hero I could be – to somebody
it’s so hard to believe
but I’ll find my place in this world

between the lines I see the writing on the wall
just around the corner
another angel falls
trapped in this heartbeat
like a hourglass on it’s side
I won’t be denied

there’s a think tank in my head
I’ll pass up on that drink I said
I’ll tear down that barbed wire fence
’cause it’s time to claim my place

chorus

I look towards the future and those yet to be born
will we provide
a better life
the angel and the fist each await their turn
on every shoulder
and no one knows the test

there’s a think tank in your head
you can pass up on that drink in your hand
together we’ll tear down that barbed wire fence
’cause it’s time to claim our place

repeat chorus
with dignity now

whisper

it’s been a long day for both of us
I can’t remember when I’ve been so tired and I know
there’s things we need to sort out
but why don’t we sit for a while first

chorus:
I hear you better when you whisper
I hear you better when you whisper
I hear you better when you whisper to me

you can rest your head against mine
I’ll light a candle so we’ll have some light and I know
the bills need to get paid
you don’t need to remind me aloud

chorus

bridge:
baby please no need to shout
that only makes matters worse
darling heed me this time
there’s no need to yell
to me you can tell
anything that troubles you

but ooooooh, I hear you better when you whisper
I hear you better when you whisper
I hear you better when you whisper to me
