I AM

WHEN I'M WITH YOU
I AM

Lyrics

I Am

I have opened every door
That the lords have put before me
I have carried every load
Just as far as I can

I have followed every path
To the songs where they lay waiting
Now I leave it all behind
But I pray you understand

I am there with you now
Close your eyes, you can feel me
I am there with you now
Though it just cannot be

If I leave you with my words
Will they be enough to soothe you
It’s a burden I will bear
In the place I now go

Only one thing I will take
Yeah, they can scatter my belongings
But every moment spent with you
Will be the light for my soul

I am there with you now
Close your eyes, you can feel me
I am there with you now
Though it just cannot be

I am there with you now
Never doubt, never ever wonder
I am there with you now
Being all I can be

THE ORWELL NIGHTMARE (For E.S.)

George Orwell quote
THE ORWELL NIGHTMARE (For E.S.)

Lyrics

THE ORWELL NIGHTMARE (For E.S.)

There’s a man on the moon
With a telescope into your bedroom
There’s a man
With his ear to your wall

He’s the man locks you up
In Guantanamo, no trial, tough luck
He’s the man
Like to waterboard us all

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984

There’s a man in your phone
Got your SIM card tagged
Your coordinates known
There’s a man
Watch you shopping at the mall

He’s the man with the pills
For your sex life, rotten life, urges to kill
He’s the man
Like to medicate us all

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s an Orwell Nightmare from 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984

Get that waterboard and ask you one more time
Yeah, this is how we do it now
Change your profile, tell the world that you’ve been lying
Make you the enemy somehow

There’s a man, wants you scared
That the violence might erupt out there
There’s a man
Moving up as you move down

He’s the man plants the news
‘Bout the Christians, Muslims, Tamils and Jews
He’s the man
Driving freedom underground

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
