Mirrors 03:48
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?

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

Fallin' In 04:26
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?

Tears 03:54
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

Rain 04:17
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
6.
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

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?

Lemon 03:34
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
9.
Nitro 03:31
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

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
