about

Parralox Melbourne, Australia

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more

Track Name: In Heaven feat Louise Love
In Heaven
Written by Peter Ivers

Verse 1
In Heaven, everything is fine
In Heaven, everything is fine
In Heaven, everything is fine
You've got your good things
And I've got mine
In Heaven, everything is fine

Verse 2
In Heaven, everything is fine
In Heaven, everything is fine
In Heaven, everything is fine
You've got your good things
And you've got mine
In Heaven, everything is fine
Track Name: I Want To See The Light
I Want To See The Light
(Tracy Howe)

Verse 1
Someone left the lights out on the ground
And the people that were there were never found
10:15 flight to Madrapour
Soaring off into the night forever more
And the dreams we were dreaming
Have all flickered and died
Before we close that curtain
I want to see the light

Verse 2
In a dream the truth is overheard
That our destination's only just a word
He who so desires is free to go
But the gesture would be worthless even so
All your well-formed opinions
Are just holes in the night
Before they pull that trigger
I want to see the light

Verse 3
Someone bring my medicine, I'm ill
The machine is ready waiting for the kill
Powers below have analyzed my fate
Memo/Update/Final/Subject/Terminate
But I feel only nothing
I with silence abide
Before they push that button
I want to see the light

Chorus
I want to see the light
I want to see the light
I want to see the light
I want to see the light
I want to see the light
I want to see the light
Track Name: Gods and Monsters
Gods and Monsters
(Darrin C. Huss / Remi Szyszka)

Verse 1
You remember it all
There's a head at the door and a face on the wall
Waiting for the sign
There's a passion you can't hide and it whispers to you
There's always a promise
In the dark of the night just before it's too late
Running out of time
But you know that the game's not over

Chorus
They're telling you lies
But you won't go down on the other side
There's a guiding light
And you don't believe in gods or monsters
In the name of the few
You gotta stay on track just to find the answer
Never to be confused
By the laws of gods and monsters

Verse 2
Contagious science
It's the emperor's new clothes
And the human bias
For whatever it means
Now the lines are drawn and the numbers chosen
Whisper in the night
It's the cold dark chamber and you hear them sighing
Running out of time
But you know that the game's not over
Track Name: The Sundial
The Sundial
(Darrin C. Huss / David Kristian)
Sleeping alone at night
In an empty house
No one can hear your lonely sigh

The walls are wide and claustrophobic
Where will you go?
To drown your sorrows

The phone never rings
The shadow of the night
Permeates the empty space
Where emotion once reside

There was a time of colour
And cheerful faces now like dust
All becomes black and white
Catatonic
Like the sundial
Shifting time

Another day is all in motion
Spring leaves to fall
Track Name: Stranger's Thoughts
Stranger's Thoughts
(H. Maile / M. Meyn)

Verse 1
In the last few hundred years
Some people lost their place on earth
They never had a chance
To stay just like they were
I can't understand
Why should this happen here
We should accept and learn
How to live together

Chorus
These are just some strangers thoughts
These are just some strangers thoughts
(Strangers thoughts)
These are just some strangers thoughts
These are just some strangers thoughts
(Strangers thoughts)
These are just some strangers thoughts
These are just some strangers thoughts
(Strangers thoughts)

Verse 2
The reason for the pain
Is always based on history
The madness in some minds
Has started to do this all
I can't understand
Why should this happen here
We should accept and learn
How to live together
Track Name: Being Boiled
Being Boiled
Written by Phil Oakey, Ian Craig Marsh & Martyn Ware


Verse 1
Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
Little people like your offspring
Boiled alive for some god's stocking
Buddha's watching, Buddha's waiting

Verse 2
Just because the kid's an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don't forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn't mean that she's your better

Verse 3
Once more with the voice of Buddha
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim
Track Name: Empire State Human
Empire State Human
Written by Phil Oakey, Ian Craig Marsh & Martyn Ware


Verse 1
Since I was very young I realized
I never wanted to be human size
So I avoid the crowds and traffic jams
They just remind me of how small I am
Because of this longing in my heart
I'm going to start the growing up
I'm going to grow now and never stop
Think like a mountain, grow to the top

Chorus
Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will grow, grow, grow
Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall
Tall, tall, tall, I want to be tall, tall, tall
As big as a wall, wall, wall, as big as a wall, wall, wall
And if I'm not tall, tall, tall, then I will grow, grow, grow
Because I'm not tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Verse 2
With concentration
My size increased
And now I'm fourteen stories high
At least!!
Empire state human
Just a bored kid
I'll go to Egypt to be
A pyramid

Coda
Brick by brick
Stone by stone
Growing till he's fully grown
Brick by brick
Stone by stone
Growing till he's fully grown

Fetch more water
Fetch more sand
Biggest person in the land
Fetch more water
Fetch more sand
Biggest person in the land
Track Name: Circus Of Death
Circus Of Death
(Oakey / Marsh / Ware)

Nine o'clock flight from Hawaii
The Trident is just touching down
We're waiting here on the tarmac
McGarrett is wearing a frown

He's here to help with a problem
A blood-spattered curse on our land
Please cast your eye over this map, sir
This business is quite out of hand

The circus of death is approaching
Its pathway is painted in red
Before it the frightened and helpless
Behind it a trail of the dead

The narcotic that forges their union
Is a substance known only to one
To the clown it is known as dominion
It's a secret that he'll give to none

The drug which gives the clown power
Means the circus can never be stopped
And his dream can go on unhindered
'Til the last human being has dropped

Spare me and my family
I've done you no wrong
Go away, please let us be
I've known you for too long
Track Name: Morale / You've Lost That Loving Feeling
Morale
Written by Oakey / Marsh / Ware



Don’t talk
Close the door
You’ve been here before

Your shape dim
I’m an old man now
The air’s thin
The walls very damp now

And if I don’t go
I’ll always be stuck here in this poor little room
With a view of the corner

I don’t forget
The light growing weak now
Experience is useless
Unless you can learn

And I’ve never met anyone
Who used their knowledge
To avoid those mistakes made again and again

And if I don’t go
I’ll always be stuck here in this poor little room
With a view of the corner

You've Lost That Loving Feeling
Written by Spector / Mann / Weil


Verse 1
You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it (baby)
But baby, baby I know it

Chorus
You’ve lost that loving feeling, woah, that loving feeling
You’ve lost that loving feeling, now it’s gone, gone, gone, woah-woah

Verse 2
Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And girl you’re starting to criticise little things I do
It makes me just feel like crying (baby)
‘cos, baby, something beautiful’s dying

Middle 8
Baby, baby, I’d get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love, a love, a love you don’t find every day
So don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let it slip away

Coda
Bring back that loving feeling, woah, that loving feeling
Bring back that loving feeling
Now it’s gone, gone, gone and I can’t go on
Baby (baby), baby (baby), I want you please (woooo)
Please (woooo)
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)
Now it bring it on back (bring it on back)
bring it on back now (bring it on back now)
Now bring it on back
Track Name: Always On My Mind / In My House
ALWAYS ON MY MIND / IN MY HOUSE
(Christopher / James / Carson / Tennant / Lowe)

Maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could
Little things I should have said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you I’m so happy that you’re mine
If I made you feel second-best I’m so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied, satisfied
Little things I should have said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind, you were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied, satisfied
You were always on my mind x3
You were always in my house

You were always on my mind it’s true
I never thought of anyone else but you
You were on my mind and in my dreams
I should have stopped to make you see, you were always

I worked so hard I thought you knew
My love I did it all for you
I never really had the time
I guess you couldn’t read my mind
You were always
Track Name: louise love, - I Don't Depend On You feat Louise Love
I Don't Depend On You
Written by Oakey / Ware / Marsh

Verse 1
The night
So young
You could lose
You could gain
Your temperature's rising
Better pull into the outside lane
You always say you're not the jealous kind
Then you tell all your friends that I've got one thing on my mind

Chorus
I've played this scene before, you had one foot in the door
But there's always plenty more, don't try to use me
I don't depend on you, I've got my own friends too
I'll never be your wife, don't try to use me
I've played this scene before, you had one foot in the door
But there's always plenty more, don't try to use me

Bridge
It's cruel but it's true, I don't depend on you
It's cruel but it's true, go back to the end of the queue
Track Name: Voyager feat Louise Love
Voyager
Written by John von Ahlen


Verse 1
I feel the pressure when you watch me
Asking the question, please don't stop me
Watching the clock, you are waiting
Waiting for something, you are leaving

Chorus
Voyager, come to me now
Voyager, come to me now now now
Voyager, come to me now
Voyager, come to me now

Verse 2
Alone at night, can you feel me?
Terror tonight, feel the screaming
Dreaming awake, that's when I see
Nothing in place, no more feeling
Track Name: Rocket Science
Rocket Science
Written by John von Ahlen


Verse 1
A challenge is made, I can feel the pressure
I cannot change my nature, I prefer leisure
I'm reading a book, out of sheer defiance
The message is clear, it's not Rocket Science

Chorus
Tonight's the night
Do you feel love?
We get it right
Do you feel love?
You know that I can't wait until we meet again
The time is right
Do you feel love?

Verse 2
I'm out of time, all the work while crying
What would you say if you knew I was lying?
I said I was ready but I know I'm not
I just turn on the TV, though I probably should not

Coda
I'm gonna get ya, you know I'm gonna get ya x6
You know that I can't wait until we meet again
I'm gonna get ya, you know I'm gonna get ya x2
Track Name: Paris Mon Amour feat Caesar Gergess and Ginnie Watson
Paris Mon Amour
Written by Caesar Gergess and John von Ahlen
Copyright Control 2015

Paris je t'aime, ma ville mon amour
Paris le jour, Paris la nuit
Paris d'une nuit, Paris toujours
Paris perdu, regagner mes Paris

Paris des amours le jour
Paris quand tout est flou
Paris des amours la nuit
Paris des Marais, Paris des beaux bourgs

Paris des amants unis
Paris des amants désunis
Paris je scelle mon amour
Paris Pont des Arts, et la Seine pour toujours.

Paris je t'aime, ma ville ma liberté
Paris Cœur-Sacré, Paris Arts et Métiers
Paris aimée contre vents et marées
Paris battue par les flots, ne sombre jamais.

Paris des amours hantés
Paris des passionnés d'amour
Paris l'hiver, Paris l'été
Paris éternelle, Paris autel de l'amour libre et fou.

Paris je t'aime, je t'aime moi non plus
Paris tu m'éblouis, Paris je t'oublie
Paris je te quitte, je te crois perdue
Paris tu me séduis, tu m'attires, tu me reconquis

Ô ville des lumières je t'aime et te vénère
Tel un beau vampire qui me prive de tout
Et me nourrit d'amour, de culture, de liberté
Je flâne et j'erre dans tes veines aux abords de la Seine
Je flâne et j'erre sans but précis, je noie mes chagrins ou célèbre mes amours dans des verres de vin au bistrot du coin ou au Café Beaubourg
Paris est une fête selon l'américain
Paris est une fête selon l'univers

Paris je t'aime, ma ville mon amour
Pour tout ce que tu m'offres peu importe le prix
Du cœur battant rougeoyant de Notre Dame aux confins de tes portes teintées de grisaille
Peu importe dans quel état j'erre, avec ou sans le sou, je préfère me laisser bercer par l'amour de tes flots jusqu'à ma mort.

A la vie, à l'amour,
Paris la nuit, Paris le jour
Fluctuat nec mergitur
Libre en pensée, libre en amour.
