I was looking at you while you was staring away I want to tell you Wanted to tell you all day What am I going to do you ever go away If every tree and home I loved Just disappeared some day If every bird, dog or cat just blown away First Strike, second strike My head up on a pike The worst that we can think of is normal very normal They say we're on the brink of War -The sound of a door bell- ding dong "I'm sorry baby, now you go answer the little door huh" She looks like a girl But she's the whole wide world she said "Gonna tell you something that you never really new about You baby you baby you baby you Gonna bring you something that you never really brought about Gonna ask you something that you never really thought about Gonna show you something that you never really seen a lot Touch you in the ways that you only ever dreamt about" But I'm only dreaming of this "The real price of progress is to seal the hand pumps Cut the water off and then you'll have them on the run Cross out all the history books and throw a big parade The past is all dependent on your looks Hip Hip Hooray Our Leader is a hero A real Hiroshima He got me pulling Rickshaws throwing bombs from his Beemer (BMW ...Car) They put him up on MTV to read all of his poems 'Cause Genocide is boring shitty ratings we all know it Non violent terrorism doesn't sell Starving in a shed While they build the Damn Wells A hunger striker asks me "Where in all the Holy Books It says to rip the stomachs out while the bloody world looks?" Looks like a paradise but smells like a morgue If you don't like this baby You can hit the fucking door Your tail falls off when you're getting into trouble It's growing back again You're feeling safe Trouble's double" -Is this the end of our civilization? You my wish to deny it But your eyes tell you it's true A tale to stun the mind- Enron-i-Mo saving all the people from themselves Keep it in the family where nobody else dwells But just in case your feeling You need value for your money We'll make a little movie Lot's of Gore Plenty Honey We are the untouchables You are the untouched We're bouncing 'round the satellites You're digging for you're lunch The water's very private You can sip yours from the toilet Milk and Cola reaching for your wallet The bombs were the bombs Now the Damn is a damn right You Hungry? Try Guzzling the pesticide Top of the World baby Top Of the World baby Top of the World baby I'm on Top Of The world All me and by me-self None of it was easy Had to free you from yourselves The air was very costly But a Sweet little deal Now Fuck Off will you please And help me keep this Real!

Killing for Power Insecurities on The Rise I strung a bell on the cat I heard her growing Fat She's in Love with Parrots and Tanks and Grenades and I'm spoiling for a fight We're sinking the mother ship Brawling in Paradise Give us your hairs your horns your hooves Your Bones your home Give me your hairs your Bones Give me your Home I live where you live So you can go You can go wherever you want You can go wherever you want Give us yours Hairs your horns your bones Give us your homes Now I live where you live so you can go You can go Wherever you want Kings and successors Living Gods Elephants in disguise The Jungle opened up Like a Book they couldn't read We swam from second to second to second Swallowing the sea Oh I believed everything Crawling to Paradise Give your hairs your horns your hooves your bones your home Oooh... Face x 4 I live where you live So you can go You can go wherever you want You can go wherever you want Give us yours Hairs your horns your bones Give us your home Now I live where you live so you can go You can go you can go Give us yours Hairs your horns your bones Give us your homes Now I live where you live so you can go You can go Where ever you want OUTRO Give us hairs your horns your hooves Give us hairs your horns your hooves Your Face Your Bones your brains your spooks I'm Spoiling for a fight In Paradise In Paradise There is no rush There is no rush I'll take you with me We're sinking the Mother ship Brawling in Paradise x 4

Saw a new Heaven Lived a new earth Possessed by the Gods We dig Through the dirt To the River Swinging from the bells Nothing can save you now Friends turn into foes Like arrows through the clouds To the River The River Hoping that we'll walk someday I we go and in we go Search for the hidden way In we go and in we go and in we go and..... The River

Three Merry Boys Make your own toys Your mamma's gone with Hep C Girls sing in church with HIV They Smile at you They're lonely They're lonely Slums and Poets They sleep deeper Nobodies Child No one to keep ya Nothing simple About the simple life Took your final first steps The day your Mama died Are you lonely Lonely (Repeat) Death take me easy The living was hard

My Compass is not bound North nor South It does not guide me to Just one house I do not serve the west I do not kneel to the East I was there when the Bells Starting ringing I saw the millions of Nostalgic face I saw the atom Exploding forms and hidden places I was here before Before the barren statistics Before the talentless could hit this Before the nuclear Mystics I was here before Sounding the alarm Feel more than you do Know more than you do Care more than you do More than you

Itching my skin I care I care if you do I'm Ditching my dreams I swear I swear if you do Magicians who green your grass They're living here too No evidence Balderdash! We'll smoke them out soon Ooooh I Cook the Ocean I cook the ocean x 8 Baking and boiled all that All that was in view Meaningless words Dogs see cats different than you Maybe more maybes are Are long Overdue Oooh I Cook the Ocean I cook The Ocean x 8 Cook the Ocean x 12

So you got One Leg Glass Eye Gold Tooth Scraping for Benjamin's in a Porno booth Sure horny as the next Ruth Right down to your musty boots But no love In sight The love scene just born to loose Shooting pollen from a rusty root Yeah your gonna step You're gonna need to In time If it please you The second you trip Because the ego Like grease do Slip Disc In the event You witness The prowess Of the Baroness Connecting the dots In your field No less Sign sealed Delivering the goods Big Mess Can't beg Can't lie No food Sucking the vitamins from a.. Dead Shoot Dogs are corny but you Gotta move Crying but you got the tunes Can't fall No plan B for you Money tree Chopped down No meat in your stew Your children just Grew and Grew If you can't fall You'd better carry big stick yeah huh? If you can't fail You'd better swing them big hips yeah huh? Dear Eliza She go to the market Shoot horse Cause she's no moderate Need to celebrate All work no play Make for Liza A dull Day Yeah you're gonna step Or else she'll feel you Like wine More will heal you The second you trip Because you're fear go Cogito Ergo Sum Luck In the event You witness The prowess Of the Baroness Connecting the dots In your field No less Sign sealed Delivering the goods Dear Eliza She go to the market You'd better carry big stick yeah huh?

about

Elyas Khan Berlin, Germany

Brawl In Paradise is Elyas's first solo record following three releases from his NYC based band Nervous Cabaret. Rejecting cultural and artistic nostalgia, Elyas rips apart his music, creating new soundtracks of post-glam, pre-revolutionary, art-rock: styled, not fashioned. Khan fits with musicians who are defined within their own context: artists such as Peter Gabriel, Amanda Palmer or Radiohead. ... more
