Track Name: Mirrors
Mirrors
(music and lyrics by Nelson)

Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll off your back – like it doesn’t matter
I was born, from the womb, not a thing to my name – time to climb the ladder
Sometimes the mask is you the other times it’s me
In the end, in the end, all you’ve got is yourself – don’t let the dreams be shattered

Mirrors in the room, looking back at me
Mirrors in the room, reflecting what you see

Let it go, let it go, let it go to the end – follow me I’m leading
Hold my hand, right or wrong, feel the jagged edge – do you get my meaning?
Love and hate try to tear at me, getting in the way
But the scars won’t cripple me, I’m stronger every day
Can you see, can you see, can you see for yourself – do you have a vision?
Everywhere, everyone, everything in your life – they fuel the mission

Mirrors in the room, looking back at me
Mirrors in the room, reflecting what you see
Mirrors in the room, on the wall just like a fly
Mirrors in the room, watching life go by

Mirror, mirror, are you listening?
I’m begging you never lie to me
I see the shapes and they’re knocking me out
Can you save me from drowning in doubt?
Track Name: Power of the Moon
Power of the Moon
(music by Nelson, lyrics by SVT)

Once I thought the world was made of truth and honest preach
Now I’ve drawn conclusion that it’s my way to teach
Now take the moment to reflect and grab your beads
For it’s time to pray, getting pulled in by the heat
Smooth talk is how he pulls you in
Take your money to the preacher’s outstretched hand
Sinner come on, get down on your knees
Take my hand and utter this life saving plea
Don’t you believe, I am the truth
Don’t you see

Can’t get to Heaven unless you pay that toll to me
So bow your head and throw yourself down and rub oil on my feet
Can’t get to Heaven until you pay that toll to me
So bow your head and throw yourself down and rub oil on my feet

Are you scared of what you see and are you filled with fear?
Just come a little closer and let me whisper in your ear
See that girl, see her dance, see her pull you in
You can’t have that, you can’t have this, you will never win
Feel the power of the moon
Pulls you in, like the tide in June
Let me take you forward with this very simple plan
Just listen to me here and take my sweaty hand
Don’t you believe, I am the truth
Don’t you see

(repeat chorus)

He’s filling you with empty words
Tell me will you ever learn?
I’m the one you need to find
Making all your fears subside
Track Name: Fallin' In
Fallin’ In
(music by Nelson, lyrics by Nelson/SVT)

I think it’s crazy how we met
I wasn't ready, ready for you yet
Gaze into your eyes, takes me miles and miles
All the dreams we dream, means the world to me

And when I'm whispering your name
I wonder if you feel the same
When I touch your velvet skin
I’m pushing you, pushing you deeper in
If you could look at you, the way I see you too
You would clearly see, we’re diving deeply

Fallin' In
Fallin' In
Fallin' In

Always craving your tender touch
And your perfect kiss is, much too much
Sometimes I feel you pulling away
I’m left to wonder about the games we play
Questions all for you
Was our meeting real and true?
Have we sealed our own fate?
Are we lovers who met too late?
Track Name: Tears
Tears
(music by Nelson, lyrics by SVT)

Waiting at stop lights, I sit here counting lies
Signal never changes
And if I drive away, perhaps I’ll realize my mistakes
I did not try and fake it

Tears in your eyes
Watering my wine
Years left behind
Drowning I turn blind

Turn around this car, speeding for your arms
Knowing it’s a heartache
Down on bended knee, begging you girl please
Don’t play my mistress

(repeat chorus)

Oooohhhhh, Oooohhhhh
I’ve been waiting for you standing on this line
Is this real or do I dare take that ride?

Waiting at stop lights, I sit here counting lies
Signal never changes
Turn around this car, speeding for your arms
Knowing it’s a heartache
Track Name: Rain
Rain
(music by Nelson, lyrics by SVT)

She's like the rain
On a long hot summer day
She's like a cool breeze
Takes your breath away

Becky - She's Lovely
She casts her spell on you
Then there's nothing left to do but follow her

Ooh - Rain Rain down on me
Ooh Ooh - Rain Rain Rain down on me

She's like the ocean
As the tide keeps rolling in
She sounds her thunder
As her lightning strikes you again
Track Name: One Track Mind
One Track Mind
(music by Nelson, lyrics by SVT)

Why must I always defend who I am, I like living just for me
This life of selfishness and all I want to be, is still not good enough for a king
Feel the power surging through my veins it's in my blood.

One track mind, is what I’m guilty of
Two thumbs down from the Queen
But two dangerous thoughts are what I'm thinking of
Because one isn't enough for me

My alter ego always thinks of better ways, to do the same rotten things
Compelling me to act in corrupt ways, and be thrown in the lion's ring
Feel the power surging through my veins it's in my blood
Track Name: What's It Gonna Take
What’s It Gonna Take
(music and lyrics by Nelson)

I didn’t know you, you didn’t know me too
I won’t surrender anything to make you feel at ease
Hidden in this secret painting, you never know what you’ll find.
Up against my better judgment I let you in my mind
There I stood, like a statue in your doorway
Gazing at your light, but something wasn’t right

What’s it gonna take for you to notice who I am?
I’m the one who loves you, baby, like no other man.

I gave you everything that you could ever want
But it was never good enough for your empty heart
I hear you talk in circles about the things you need
Searching for your superhero who won’t ever set you free
And what do you feel? Are you gonna say you’re sorry?
For walking out on me, for walking out on me

What’s it gonna take for you to notice who I am?
I’m the one who loves you, baby, like no other man.

And what do you feel? Are you gonna say you’re sorry?
For walking out on me, for walking out on me
What’s it gonna take? What’s it gonna take?
Track Name: Lemon
Lemon
(music and lyrics by SVT)

Rotten lemons fall from the sour tree
And not before long this lemon makes a sour tea
Sinking deep he swims and he can’t see
He’s pushed to the bottom of the lemon's stinging sea
Drink from the poison, drink from your poison

Rotten lemons fall from the sour tree
And not before long this lemon makes a sour seed
Drink from the poison, drink from your poison

To join the race, you lie your way
You win the votes, your soul decays
You steal the world your bank controls
All your money that lemon spoiled
Track Name: Nitro
Nitro
(music by Nelson, lyrics by Nelson and SVT)

Do you want to drive my fast car?
Do you want to feel the speed?
You’ve got to take some chances.
It’s adrenaline you need.
Will they put us in the movies?
And will they write about us too?
Do you like the way I’m driving?
You think, I think, you do.

Brake through the corner of your life
You’ll never know just what you’ll find
Crash through all the stop signs
You’ve got to open up your mind

If you want to feel the pleasure
You’ve got to take a little pain
Now babe, you think it’s worth it?
Feel the nitro burning flames

(repeat chorus)

I’m breaking through baby
I’m burning rubber for you
I’m breaking deep inside of you
Track Name: Stop the Fighting
Stop the Fighting
(music and lyrics by Nelson)

Once there was a man who took a branch from a tree
He carved himself a spear to feed his family
But then he found out it could do so much more
And in one fell swoop he invented the war
There’s one thing I know for sure, we’ve got to stop all this fighting

Once there was a man who invented the gun
Made for keeping peace but no one ever won
Some men said they could take what they please
Those bullets gave them power, dropping men to their knees
There’s one thing I know for sure, we’ve got to stop all this fighting

Oh, look what’s happening now
Yeah, they’re taking our town
Oh, yeah they’re breaking us down baby
Yeah, gotta turn this around
Oh, look what’s happening now
Yeah, they’re coming to our town
Oh, but I’m coming around
Come on and hear my sound

Once there was a man who created the bomb
People stood in fear because they knew it was wrong
The slaughtering of millions in a single pass
Is enough to make us wanting for a better past
There’s one thing I know for sure, we’ve got to stop all this fighting
