Lyrics to Blurred Vision's Debut Album 'Organized Insanity'

1. No More War

No More War (repeat)

People fighting in the street
People dying for a revolution
Children running to the beat
Hear the sound of the war maker's drum
Feel the marching of their feet
Like a siren roaring through the crowd
Through the fire and the heat
Hear the cries of freedom ringing out

So when we shout it's over now, it's over now
Our final fight, will we unite
To sing it out loud now

"Men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war"*

How many times must we play the fool
("I call on every man and woman")*
How many dreams lost to sick fantasies
("The truth must be told")*
In the end will we end
("Nations will not rise up against nations")*
As the turning point in history
("I ain't gonna study war, no more")*

So when we shout it's over now, it's over now
Our final fight, will we unite
To sing it out loud now
No More War!

* (Quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.)

2. Rollin On'

Hey boy!
Can't you hear the silence of your fame take hold?
Hey girl!
Will we hear the music when your skin's grown old? Oh no!

We love the way you are
A shining superstar, we'll take you to the top
So compromise your soul
It's only Rock N Roll don't you know
We're rollin' on with the show

Hey world!
Can't you see that all I want is to be loved?
Give me one more,
One more thrill to feel, to touch, to remember I remember

We love the way you are
A shining superstar, we'll take you to the top So compromise your soul
It's only Rock N Roll don't you know
We're rollin' on with the show

3. Tonight

Slow down, don't move too fast
Take the time, shed the past

Tonight
I see through your eyes
Lay your heart next to mine
And leave, this world
Behind

Hear me, crying out
Feel my soul, breaking down

New day will dawn sweet delight
Let's leave this world behind
Tonight

One last thing before we say goodbye
This I know of Love it can never die
When you've laid it all out on the line
With no regret to hold, with nothing to hide

So one final time lay by my side,
Tonight

4. Long May You Run

One day, wake to find
open door left behind
If only you had stepped inside
Watching time, pass you by
In the shadows of your mind
Falling through those safety clouds

Here in this pain I am alive
Soaring through the comfort of the night, of the night
Wondering these memories
Distant thoughts of what used to be
I still walk through those dreams...

(Ahhhhh) Long may you run through it all
(Ahhhhh) For all we are will carry on through our love

One day, wake to find
One more door open wide
Won’t you step inside

5. Promise

Under the waking eyes of dawn I see the endless light
lighting my way into your arms

Call out to me
Awaken me

Destiny is cold
Far away from home
Wipe the tears away, my love I'll hold you again

Wondering where I am is this the way, is this the plan?
Is it what we're meant to understand?

Call out to me
Awaken me

Destiny is cold
Far away from home
Wipe the tears away, my love I'll hold you again

Ride on ride on, into the heat of the sun
Let the wave of freedom lead you on
Ride on ride on, into the heat of the sun
And let the wave of Love take, hold

6. Dear John

Dear John have you heard the news today?
The stench of war is still in the air
As crowds of people stand and stare
At all the madness that is in our world today

And though the road we're on is filled with pain
We can't help but feel your Love remains
We still imagine living life in peace
And still believe that Love is all we need

Oh my, oh my
So many years have gone by
We try and try
Never will we say good bye

Dear John have you heard the news today?
Folks on the hill think they're the heroes of the day
The working class are still betrayed
Billy blew his mind out cause there’s too many bills to pay

And though we're living life with more restrain
We can not help but feel your Love remains
We still imagine living life in peace
And still believe that Love is all we need

Oh my, oh my
So many years have gone by We try and try
Never will we say good bye

7. Arms Of Our World

With the waking of everyday
When the sun’s face unveils
And when the stars last ray of light
Shines through the dead of night

Tell me how we’ve come to this So far away from loneliness
And I’m, I’m alive in this embrace I’m alive in this place

If I could give the world
What your smile gives to me
Then the world would always be
In perpetual ecstasy

Tell me how we’ve come to this So far away from loneliness
And I’m, I’m alive in this embrace I’m alive in this place

8. All I Wanted

Looking at the world I know
wondering how we could be so skeptical of Love
leaving trails of empty, broken hearts
Time is short and ticking by
better make the best of life before it passes you
leaves you old and looks for someone new

Follow you, follow me
this is how we used to be
dreaming of the years gone by
wipe the tear drop from your eye
Running wild and running fast
oh the good times never last
it's all I ever wanted in this life

Now I'm standing on the edge
remembering the things you said
"what's going to be will be
life is nothing but a mystery"
hold your little hand in mine
everything will be just fine
and if things go wrong
remember how we used to sing this song

Follow you, follow me
this is how we used to be
dreaming of the years gone by
wipe the tear drop from your eyes
Running wild and running fast
oh the good times never last
it's all I ever wanted in this life

Follow you, follow me
this is how we used to be
dreaming of the years gone by
wipe the tear drops from your eyes
Running wild and running fast
oh the good times never last
it's all I ever wanted in this life

Now I really see
it is all a mystery...

9. Wherever You Are

Every night I turn the lights out dear
Hoping for your light to reappear
Close my eyes I’ll sit here for a while
Dreaming of your innocence and smile

I’m calling out to you Wherever you are
I’m calling out to you Wherever you are

Every night I turn the lights out dear
Waiting for our world to reappear
Close my eyes I’ll sit here for a while
Dreaming of your innocence and smile

I’m calling out to you Wherever you are
I’m calling out to you Wherever you are

10. The Keeper

Verse 1 (Persian poem by Hafez sung in Persian) Verse 2 (English Translation of poem):
My Love, patience
For on the winding path of Love
Those, who refuse to sacrifice their beating heart
Will never reach the domain of pure Love
Will never reach freedom
(Ahhhh)

11. Organised Insanity

There’s an organised insanity waiting here for you and me
(How long, how long)
It’s an organised insanity built to distance you and me
(No more, no more)

Dressed up suits and waxed up boots
Don’t you know the joke is set on you
Lies and ties in every size
Nothing, nothing, nothing’s new

And overtime I view the scene
It’s all about a lunatic’s dream
Presidents, kings and queens, and politicians mean
Nothing to me

There’s an organised insanity waiting here for you and me
(How long, how long)
It’s an organised insanity built to distance you and me
(No more, no more)

Tell me freedom, tell me war
Just tell me what I’m really living for
Feed me sex and such excess
Feed me what will bring me success

And overtime I view the scene
It’s all about a lunatic’s dream
Presidents, kings and queens, and religion mean
Nothing to me

There’s an organised insanity waiting here for you and me
(How long, how long)
It’s an organised insanity built to distance you and me
(No more, no more)
