Wrong place
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
I'm in the wrong place
What does it take to get me away
I'm in the wrong place
What does it take to get me away

I have this dullness to slake
For my own sake

Here's quite pleasant
But I need some deed to shore up the mettle
Here's quite pleasant
But I need some deed to shore up the mettle

Wont is a devious disease
Turns wrongs into ease.

The prisoner
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
I began to lose control
When our link became worn
Brought about the constant lack
Of your body close to me

If the…heaviest limit of a man
Is the one he gives himself
Someone said “You ought to dare,
Cause about you they don't care”

“Can't keep following the same way
If you wanna change your aim”
So Father, I'm turning on a dime
And I need some help tonight

I begun to lose control
When our link became worn
All my strains have come to naught
I should follow Steve's thought.

Lowlands
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
I am talking to you, pale bright moon
Cause I am leaving this town, and I'll be leaving soon
And since now I'm feeling a bit like a loon
I better pack my bag and get me out

Things have changed lately on this side
Someone has gone, she was supposed to be my bride
And despite all this time that I was taken for a ride
I still think that I can't live without

I am talking to you, pale bright moon
For now I'm facing what I decided in June
When my only aim was to kick out that gloom
But now it seems that I have some doubts

But this is the path, now it's time to move
And come what may, I will pay my dues
And anywhere I'll go, any place that I'll choose
I always will be casting about

I am talking to you, pale bright moon
Cause I am leaving this town, and I'll be leaving soon
And now that I am about to tip over this doom
I need your sight to…help me out.

Expectations
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
I've heard about this a while ago
It seems the perfect stage to show Steve's thought
People here they look as though
Care for mind's sake and not for gold
So I bet this time my time has come
It's now my turn to throw

Bands here play from their souls
They don't care for trends nor for words
Life is funnier when you don't
Worry 'bout what might be their thoughts [and nevermore remorse]
Here nothing gets me tired or bored [not yet]
It's good [just different] and troubles no more

Cause here I won't have troubles no more
Here I won't have troubles no more
Here I know I'll never wanna leave anymore
Here I won't have troubles no more

I heard about this a while ago
Friends have shown their care when I was old
All along as a stepping stone
That turns the sand into gold
So before my past gets me worn
I have to leave that and let it roll

Cause here I won't have troubles no more
Here I won't have troubles no more
Here I won't have troubles no more
Here I won't have troubles no more
Here I know I'll never wanna leave anymore.

Silence
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
Silence, no friend's talks
Spoiled kid, learn not to owe

Helpless? No gilded warmth
Stop whinge, time for a walk…

Old place
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
This old place again
Makes me feel I ought to go back, it blurs my brain
“Make up for lost time”
Is screaming in my mind though things here seem no prime
Mankind is inclined
To take best and worst direction when fragile
And sightlessly perchance
He will care his choice if fears the consequence

Thrills of yesteryear
Hiding all those tears now gaze 't me with a sneer
Gotta reach the root
Freedom's not about your actions, it's your mood
Not sure where to go
He said “Walk within thy mind, not on a road”
This old place again
Someone swore it's here to prove how much I care.

Talking to the moon
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
I keep talking to the moon bright
Like the shepherd used to feel like
Every time things weren't quite right
And no one seemed to be around

I keep talking to the moon bright
Though I can't see her due to these lights
That are blooming in this urban blight
Which everything is dragging down

There she stands in the pool night
Staring at this world alight

I keep talking to the moon bright
While she's standing at that dizzy height
And I'm gonna be forthright
Cause I know she won't let me down

I keep talking to the moon bright
For I's cheated with a fool's sleight
Never looked at what is nearby
But now it's time to turn around

There she stands in the pool night
Staring at this world alight

I keep talking to the moon bright
Like the shepherd used to feel like
Every time things weren't quite right
And no one seemed to be around

I keep talking to the moon bright
Cause now I'm in a spot tight
N' though I learned my lesson all right
Still need her sight to help me out.

No more, Light?
(music by Mister Peculiar)
(instrumental)

Dreaming
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
It was brought about the constant lack of her body close to you

You were in the wrong place

Just walk within thy mind, not on a road

You were in the wrong place

The heaviest limit of a man is the one he gives himself

Someone was gone, she was supposed to be your bride

You should follow Steve's thought

You were in the wrong place

You were in the wrong place

Wrong place.

Funny
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
Well that girl she said it does that 'cause it changes it in the past
“It remembers what it'll do at long last”
Then came talks about ambitions and the spider in one side
And that in June she would become a bride
Though she was about to marry, she wanted to get more
I guess she meant to sweep but not the floor
Then she left at 7 and we were supposed to meet again
Sorry if I did not show up, that wasn't meant

And I got them all
No matter what, it's all in my bowl
And I'ma glow
All night long

Was a Thursday eventide and I was about to crash
When she called in “You up for guitar class?”
I was not but then it happened and we got along fine
Insomuch as I felt on cloud nine
Then one day she flipped out and she tried me to grab
To kick me and I had to blow on a cab
It was the last time that I saw her and as old Neil said
Funny how things that start spontaneously end that way

And I got them all
No matter what, it's all in my bowl
And I'ma glow
All night long

Well this girl I got to know was the everybody's goal
Then she came to me and I thought it's a stole!
She had tried a conversation, but it didn't work fine
“I don't know your language, and you don't know mine”
Then we got to get to know just a little bit more
Enough for her to say those usual words
And it ended up the same, except that she was strange
It's all the same, only the names will change

And I got them all
No matter what, it's all in my bowl
And I'ma glow
All night long

(It) Was a sunny early morning when he got me to know
The girl to whom I'd later shown my world
It was nothing but a weekend for them to see that land
Or that's what in the first place they had planned
Then a few years rolled away and she happened to get back
And we got a date, drinks and a ch-ch-chat
Sure I haven't planned to woo her but something went amiss
Something that I would gladly dismiss

And I got them all
No matter what, it's all in my bowl
And I'ma glow
All night long

[spoken]
And he placed the balls one by one in the jar;
He did so until there was no room to add another ball.
Then he asked “Is the jar full?”, and one of the students replied “Yes”.

Well it's not super important, it's just a chat.

I learned to appreciate what I have.

Please answer to the first question too.

Shame on me
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
My dear friend you know I've got dirty hands
I guess something went wrong when the lights went off on my bed
Friend of mine please don't forgive me this lie
I don't deserve your pity for your sake you better tell me goodbye

I asked you can I date with her
You said we are the two you trust more than anyone else
We didn't mean to make you harm
I guess you should revise your own chart
And more than ever please don't let me any more stay with that gal

My dear friend you know I've got dirty hands
For what we have shared I should rather stick my head in the sand
Friend of mine please don't forgive me this lie
It's something I've done and I'll be carrying that load 'til I die

I had to give in for a while
Cause she was lying and I needed to step in for my pride
I know that I should apologise
But it's hard for me to look in your eyes
So I'll pick up this guitar and play to narrate to the people my lies

(And it goes…)

This time for me is bit confused
One day I fear my steps, one day it's like I'd nothing to loose
But still I go as I always did
Wasting time and trying to hide you my id
And thinking of the things that I no longer have and never I will.

Sky eyed girl
(music and lyrics by Mister Peculiar)
Sky eyed girl who are you to me
I might've asked anyone else but no one was seen
And the lack of knowledge grew up in my mind
Since you got your lips on mine since you got me blind
That things were not clear in my mind (it) was already clear before
But then the confusion left open the illusion's door
I's not searching for lover nor fortune and fame
I was looking for new tools for my old row but what I found was hail

Earth eyed girl where have you been
What sort of street you walked on when beside you it wasn't me
Please say it's not real, swear it's all about lies
Though the attire you wore in that pic was a bell that for me chimes
You might not be fooling me, might be true for today
But so far on our tomorrow we had what was on yesterday
Now it's half the time that we have to be apart
But still I don't see truth in your eyes and so I guess is in your heart

Sky eyed girl, so you decided on him
Then what for those words you used to swear to me
Earth eyed girl you run away again
How many times this story d'you think that I should stand
Sky eyed girl, now away you've turned
Earth eyed girl, will you ever learn
My single-mindedness is gonna take its toll.
