Tape Head Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Groove Machine (3:42)
Lay down your burdens by the riverside
Take a deep breath and go for a ride

Welcome to the groove machine
Welcome to the groove

Music, oh music, such a funky thing
The closer you get, the deeper it means

Welcome to the groove machine
Welcome to the groove
2. Fade (3:24)
One day I'll get older
Then it will be over
Want to live a long life
Like there is no next time

(Who knows ho long after today
Life is too short to fade away)

I've heard a million stories
Some self explanatory
But then the words fade into gray
Take from the final pages
Whatever is contagious
Then make it all just fade away

Each day I get older
Get a little colder
I don't need to fit in
Like I did way back then
3. Over and Over (3:23)
If I hurt you, I don't mean to
Please forgive me
Got no excuse

Over and over again
Over and over
Over and over again
I let you down

I will hurt you, it's what I do
Please forgive me
You don't have to

Over and over again
Over and over
Over and over again
I let you down
4. Ono (3:55)
Have you ever chosen to ignore the warning sign
Give the benefit of doubt, just to ease your mind
Have you ever turned your head, when someone's doing someone wrong
Everyday's a new surprise

Ono, ono, some things remain the same
Some people never change, ono

Have you ever been the victim, lying to protect someone
And what they do to you, you know is wrong
Have you ever known someone, who controls with bribes and tears
everyday's a new surprise

Ono, ono, some things remain the same
Some people never change, ono

Have you ever known someone who builds you up to let you down
Sincere apologies, sugar-coated promises
And as usual, it's everybody else's fault, ono

Ono, ono, some things remain the same
Some people never change, ono
5. Cupid (4:14)
Black valentine, pay for a crime
I ain't superstitious anyway
Cupid shot the wrong guy

I ain't over you, but it's gonna change
Move to Austin... get away
Cupid shot the wrong guy
6. Ocean (3:08)
Deep in the ocean
A thought of you carries me there
Move in slow motion
I float above you in the air

Over the ocean
Across the sea
When I think of the ocean
It is there to remind me

High on a mountain
I look at the valley below
The sun shines upon them
But I'm up here in the snow

Over the mountain
Over the sea
When I look at the ocean
It is there to remind me

Deep in the desert
One flower standing alone
Faith hope and love
Carry me back to my home
7. Little Bit of Soul (4:13)
Put a little soul in your pocket
Put a little soul in the street
Put a little soul in your rhythm
Put a little soul in me

Put a little soul in your lover
Put a little soul in those sheets
Put a little soul in something
Put a little soul in me

Just a little bit, just a little bit
A little bit of soul

Put a little soul in your music
Put a little soul in your groove
Put a little soul in your vision
Put a little soul in you

Put a little soul in your living
Put a little soul in your time
Put a little soul in your religion
Put a little soul in mine

Just a little bit, just a little bit
A little bit of soul

Put a little soul in the thing
That you love to do
Let it all go if you want to
It'll come back to you

Just a little bit, just a little bit
A little bit of soul
8. Hate You (3:01)
I'll never hurt you
I'll never bring you down
I won't desert you
I'll always be around

You don't know how much I hate you
You don't know how much I hate you

I'll never kill you
Or make you feel afraid
I'll never beat you
Or make you feel ashamed

You don't know how much I hate you
You don't know how much I hate you
9. Higher Than God (3:00)
Once I felt inspired, everything was new
Thought I could do anything, expecially with you

Cold as an icy stream, lighter than everything
I thought that we were higher than God

Once I thought you loved me, everything was true
Thought I found my answer, uhh
Thought it was in you

Cold as an icy stream, lighter than everything
I thought that we were higher than God

Castles and scars align
View of the tape head crime
I thought that we were higher than God
10. Happy (5:38)
Yeah, the rain came independence day
With an old flag, washed and raised
And the chid sang, all fall down
No one heard it, not a sound
Yeah the rain came turning gray
And the jury went out to play
Doesn't matter someone said
There's tomorrow, go to bed

No drama, no trauma, down in the jungle
down in decay
Getting over, getting older, something is different
something is changed
I be happy, I be happy

In the jungle where the beat is strong
Nothing's shocking, loud is long
Like the middle of a dream
I was woken when I screamed
I could never go back to that old prison of my youth
Move forward, someone said, you can make it
If you use your head

No drama, no trauma, down in the jungle
down in decay
Getting over, getting older, something is different
something is changed
I be happy, I be happy

When your world comes crashing down
And there ain't nothing you can do about it
And when everybody's done you wrong and your feeling toe down
Now the kingdom of everything is within and to love yourself is not a sin
And if there's a light inside, it'll shine
And if there's a light inside, it'll shine

No drama, no trauma, down in the jungle
down in decay
Getting over, getting older, something is different
something is changed
I be happy, I be happy
11. Mr. Evil (3:45)
Daddy's got the money
Daddy's got control
Daddy's got the power
Daddy's got you cold
And he's been chasing your lovers away
Whatever it takes for him to get his way

Do you know, do you know
Do you know Mr. Evil?

Daddy told me today
Im gotta go
Told me that he'd kill me
He said that bad things woulld happen to me
Whatever it takes him to get rid of me

Do you know, do you know
Do you know Mr. Evil?
12. World (3:36)
Fire's burning, smoke is hurling all across the sky
Cross the water, past the border, ain't nowhere to hide
Summer's coming, rainy season, guess it passed us by

World keep turning
World, round and round it goes

Mud sliding, oceans risin', hurricanes and tides
Earth quaking, mountains shakin, ain't nowhere to hide
Hard breathing, lots of sneezing, waters in my eyes

White racists, black hatred, never gonna die
Religion, facisim, Armageddon time
Doomsdayin', God savin', everybody dies

World keep turning
World, round and round it goes
