THE DEVIL IS REAL IN YOUR MIND

(words & music: Eike Moriz 07.09.13 )

 

The devil is real in your mind


The devil is real in your mind

If you buy into them stories old & new


The devil is real in your mind

 

You read those stories from the liars

You read those stories from the liars

If you read those stories from the liars

The devil is real in your mind

 

The teachers told me he is real

The preachers told me he is real

If you buy into their fear

The devil is real in your mind

The devil is real in your mind

The devil is real in your mind

 

If you read those stories from the liars


If you listen to the liars


If you read those stories from the liars


If you listen to the liars


 

The devil is real in your mind

TO CAPE TOWN

(words & music by Eike Moriz 2013)

 

You wanna see the ‚Mother City’ way down,

Buy your ticket, pack your bags & your best gowns.

Loose your frown & get down: To Cape Town.

 

Fly over Egypt, Central Africa & Zim,

Much easier than slaving at the gym.

Loose your frown & get down: To Cape Town.

 

Now you land & drive on the N2 in style,

You pass Kayelitsha & Guguletu in a while.

You see townships, crossing goats & racing cars,

Mountain views, mighty oceans & the brightest stars.

 

Sell your shares, rip up your plastic & get hip:

When you take a risk & make that south-bound trip

Loose your frown & get down: To Cape Town.

 

Sell your shares, rip up your plastic & get hip:

When you take a risk & make that south-bound trip

Loose your frown & get down: To Cape Town.

 

Sell your shares, rip up your plastic & get hip:

When you take a risk a make that south-bound trip

Loose your frown, get down: To Cape Town.

Loose your frown, get down: To Cape Town.

Loose your frown & get down to Cape Town.

SMOOTH & NICE

(Words & music by Eike Moriz 7.9.13)

 

You’re my sweet woman
- I can’t believe you’re for real.


You’re my sweet mamma - I can’t believe that you’re real.


That you want me only
- is a lot for me to deal!

 

I'm your ‘jack of all trades’ – I push your buttons right,

I am your rocket man
- I’ll treat you right all night.

When I hold you in my arms
 - You melt away smooth & nice.

 

Every time you’re in my arms – you melt away smooth & nice.


All my exes they are crying – cause you & I we fit so nice. 


You’re the first girl in my life that does me smooth & nice.

 

You’re an honest girl, you see past all the shiny gold


You’re a real tight mamma, you & I can happily grow old


‘Cause I can rock you hard lover - like no one ever rocked your boat

 

Every time you’re in my arms – you melt away smooth & nice.


All my exes they are crying – cause you & I we fit so nice. 


You are the first girl in my life that does me smooth & nice.

AT LAST

(words & music by Mack Gordon & Harry Warren)

At last,

my love has come along

My lonely days are over

And life is like a song

 

Oh, yeah, at last

The skies above are blue

My heart was wrapped up in clovers

The night I looked at you



->I found a dream that I could speak to

 

A dream that I can call my own

I found a thrill to rest my cheek to

A thrill that I have never known

 

Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile

Oh, and then the spell was cast

And here we are in heaven

For you are mine - At last


SENORITA BLUES

(words & music by Horace Silver, additional lyrics & changes by Ike Moriz - marked in bold font)

 

Señorita Blues is what they call her,

way down Argentina way

Señors fallin' for her,

with the hope that she will stay

By the time that they love her,

Señorita Blues done gone away

 

Well she's hot and good lookin'

And she always knows just what to say

Yes she's hot and good lookin'

And she always knows just what to say

By the time that they love her,

Señorita Blues done gone away.


Oh, she always comes out of nowhere;

And once she's there, there's nowhere to run, run, run from her.

She always comes out of nowhere;

And once she's there, oh, there's just nowhere, nowhere, nowhere. 

You can run, you can run, you can't run.

You can run, you can run, you can't run.

You can run, you can run, you can't run. 

Señorita Blues.

THIS COULD BE LOVE

(words & music by Eike Moriz 09.05.2013)

 

There were many others

Felt something that could have been

Begged, stole & borrowed

Just saw what should have been

 

This time something’s wrong

This time I hear no song

This time I feel – this could be real,

This could be love.

 

2x(This could be love – love, love – oh, love)

          This could be looooove, ooooh-ooooh

 

So many stories...

And all of them are true.

Everyone believes in their stories...

Yet none of them is you.

 

This time it’s all new

This time the story’s you

This time I feel – this could be real,

This could be love.

 

2x(This could be love – love, love – oh, love)

          This could be looooove, ooooh-ooooh

FOREVERMORE

((c)(p) 27.08.2013 words & music by Eike Moriz)

 

So many years, so many places;

So many tears, so many faces;

And yet I made it through,

Oh, sweet love.

 

So many fears, so many ideas;

So much confusion, so much disillusion;

And yet I made it here

I finally came to see:

 

That all I ever was & all I’ll ever be

is always here,

That all I ever was & all I’ll ever be

is always here:

Right here, right now. Forevermore!

DISILLUSION BLUES 

(Words & music by Eike Moriz)


There’s no such thing as fairness -  


There must be other plans for us.

No existence of justice -

Our laws just build walls between us.


 

There’s no such thing as freedom –

from the results of our deeds.

No easy way in or out of this life –

No escape from our needs.

 

Oh, the breeze in the lumbering trees


Whispers eternal truths


Oh, i can’t deceive - you or me
anymore

 

There’s no such thing as peace –

In a way we’re waging war every day.

Hatred & violence won’t ever cease –

Just take a ride on the nearest highway.


 

There’s nothing left but surrender –

Pick myself up & tie my own shoes.

Join my club of the mind bender –

And sing the Disillusion Blues.

UNTIL THEIR LIGHTS ARE OUT (ALIEN BLUES)

((c)(p) 26.09.13 words & music by Eike Moriz)

 

I fell out of the sky,

At least that would make some kinda sense.

I fell into this river of lies,

Looking for someone to help me understand.

 

Why, people chasing their tails day in day out,

Stepping on each other’s dreams,

Trying to buy something that can’t be bought,

Until their lights are out...

 

I came into this world,

Eyes wide open, observing all my space,

Every time I thought I got it, I just got my mind in a whirl,

Nothing made sense about this race.

 

Grabbing & hoarding stuff day in day out,

Afraid of life & death & yet running on without pause,

Lying, stealing & killing in the name of whatever suits the cause,

Until their lights are out.

THINK I’M A MILLIONAIRE

(words & music: Eike Moriz 07.09.13)

 

Those model-hotties, they don't love me

They don’t mean a thing to me

Those model-hotties just don’t get me

They don’t mean a thing to me

They are the craziest women that I have ever seen.

 

They wear high-heeled peak-a-toes

Their whole vibe is barbie-plastic

They wear high-heeled peak-a-toes

Their whole vibe is barbie-plastic

Yet sometimes they stare me over

Think I’m a millionaire – fantastic.

 

Plastic girls will make you sell your grandma

Make you sell your life & soul

Those plastic girls make you sell your grandma

They’ll make you sell your life & soul

Temptress will make you do those things

That make you feel empty like a whole!

 

Yet sometimes there comes an angel

Who appears once in a million years

Yet sometimes there’s an angel

She appears once in a million years

That angel will simply love you

Wether you are or wether you ain’t a millionaire.

 

The right girl will stand by you

She will take you by the hand

Yes, the right girl simply stands by you

Holding your heart in her loving hands!

After all those years of sorrow

She won’t care if you are if you ain’t a millionaire.


THESE EYES ARE NOT YOURS

(words & music: Eike Moriz 2013) 


You’ve seen it all – you’ve heard it all.

You’ve felt it all – you’ve smelled it all.

You’ve seen it all – you’ve touched it all.

You’ve sniffed it all – you’ve smoked it all.

 

(BUT THESE ARE NOT YOURS)x3

THESE EYES ARE NOT YOURS

 

All that counts in the end, my friend:

Can you extend your love to embrace us all?

Or will you fall?

 

You’ve seen it all – you’ve heard it all.

You’ve felt it all – you’ve smelled it all.

You’ve seen it all – you’ve touched it all.

You’ve sniffed it all – you’ve smoked it all.


(BUT THESE ARE NOT YOURS)x3

THESE EYES ARE NOT YOURS


But if all that you’ve learnt is only there 

to make you feel better about yourself 

& disregard the rest, then: 

 (THESE ARE NOT YOURS)x3

THESE EYES ARE NOT YOURS
