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: New Light (Rotersand vs Timo van Laak Rework)
New Light
(John von Ahlen)

Verse 1
What happens when I turn the dial
I want to know at any price
A new light dawns
A brand new days begins
There was a time when conscience rang
It used to talk and talk all night
I feel that time has left me long ago

Chorus
One touch and then you’re nothing
Follow me, there you are
One touch and then you’re nothing
Follow me, there you are

Verse 2
I want to create many things
I want to feel what others feel
I want to be a part of something more
But when I mix the chemicals
I maybe get the balance wrong
I feel the darkness crawling from within

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
A new light dawn (3 times)
Track Name: Don't Listen To Me (Hear No Evil Remix)
Don't Listen To Me
(John von Ahlen)

Chorus
Don't listen to me, don't know what I see
You don't know what it's like to be lonely
Don't listen to me, see the end in tears
Gotta learn somehow

Verse 1
If I didn't love you, I wouldn't keep a broken heart
If I didn't know you, I wouldn't want to be apart

Bridge
5 nights alone now, better off somehow
5 times alone now , better off somehow

Verse 2
If I ever told you, I know you wouldn't want to hear
All the things I promised, and all the things I know you fear

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8 (not in official version)
Feel my pain, call my name
All alone, once again
Track Name: Touched By The Hand Of God (Extended)
Touched By The Hand Of God
(New Order / Arthur Baker)

Verse 1
I was standing by the ocean when I saw your face
I couldn’t look at you
I guess you knew it but I never realized
That we were through

And now Im down here all alone
With every feeling that I own
You can’t take that away

And with every breath we take
And the illusions we create
Will come to you someday

Chorus
And I was touched
By the hand of god
Never knew it
But of course I was

Verse 2
I never hoped to do the things in this world
I wanted to
Because everything I own
It belongs to you

I never looked at you in a sexual way
In my life before
And I’ve never woken up like this
So desperately before

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Acrimony (Markus Reinhardt Remix)
Acrimony
(John von Ahlen)

Verse 1
Light moving faster now
Red getting closer now

Pre Chorus
Make the first move and I’ll do the same
The city talks to me at night
We all dream of life beyond this plane
Replace the sadness, it’s all you can do

Chorus
But there is someone who will protect you
Who understands you, be there beside you
Through all the sadness and pain that follows
Please close your eyes now, ignore the horror

Verse 2
Blue, blue so long ago
Flesh feel the afterglow

Pre Chorus
Make the first move and I’ll do the same
The city talks to me at night
We all dream of life beyond this plane
Replace the sadness, with cautionary gladness

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
No more echo of the pain that a broken heart sustains
Will I ever love again?
In the darkness I must go, feel my fear it starts to grow
Will I ever breathe again?
Track Name: Machines (Dubstar Version) Part One
Machines
(John von Ahlen)

Verse 1
You gave me nothing, I gave you enough
Why can’t I trust you, it’s more than enough
I send you letters, I save you my heart
I made a promise, I fell from the start
We all need lovers, we all need a friend
It’s not a science please say it again
Like falling crystals my heartache it grows
I feel the passion this time I should go

Chorus
I, I’ve fallen in, I’ve fallen in love with my friend, loyal friend
And I, I fall in love
I know you’re not afraid to fall to fall in love again
I, I’ve fallen in, I’ve fallen in love with my friend, loyal friend
And I, I’ve fallen in, I’ve fallen in love with my friend again

Verse 2
We go to Berlin, we travel by plane
We go to London again and again
Two steps forward then two steps back
We’re still hidden but we like it like that
And ten years later we stick to our plan
I’m a woman and you are a man
We’re still together and we are still friends
I love this journey please don’t let it end

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
We feel, mmm yeah yeah
Do you feel the love, we feel the love yeah
Do you feel the love, I feel the love
Do you feel the love
There’s someone calling out
for your love
It’s calling all around you
Track Name: The Hunger
The Hunger
(John von Ahlen)

Chorus
Give me someone who can show me what is real
Give me someone who is feeling what I feel
When the hunger starts to show
And the hurting starts to grow
And I feel there’s nothing left in the world

Verse 1
Find my life, even though I try
Try to stay alive
Even though I
Though I find a light
Maybe I was right
Hope is never undone
I pray

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Why should I
Have to start the fire
Maybe there is someone
Waiting for the, for the time when I
Dare to speak my mind
Going undercover again!

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
Maybe I deserve the loneliness
The feeling of just one caress
Is something that I need to find
But somehow in the emptiness
There is a feeling I am blessed
But still I want to find someone

When you need a little love
Take it from my heart
Take it from my heart
Standing in the rain
I watch the fire burn
Watch the fire burn

Chorus
Who knew we’re dancing in the firing line
Sometimes you never get it right
Who knew we’re dancing in the shining light
I know a miracle has happened tonight

Five days of sorrow waiting for you
Waiting for you

I want the feeling, so make it real
You won’t believe me, it don’t break the deal
Now I’m believing it, so make me feel

We come together in a promised land
We live forever when we make a stand
We come together in a promised land
Now if we start believing we can make it real

Like a crazy diamond I’m shining on you
Fly me to freedom, take me away
We search for something, but we never know why
I know you can feel it deep in your heart
Deep in your heart

You won’t believe me, believe me, believe me
Now I’m believing it, so make me feel
So make me, make me
Make me, make me

I'm coming on home, don't keep me waiting too long baby

No longer will terror grip my heart
Sad parting but sadness never lasts

In ancient times I crossed the lines for you
I touched your mind and hoped to find a truth

Pity for the fool with the hole in your heart
When dawn breaks I know I will be
Curled up all alone and afraid in the dark

And the promise, that you held so dear
Becomes a shadow of all our pain

When you're a million miles away
If I had one thing to say

Or maybe I should find the real you
The real you

But it aint easy as a matter of fact
You know I still can’t get to you

Failure
(John von Ahlen)

There’s a failure to improve, to repeat your doom
There’s a stain to be removed, a mark on you

Something special, something good, but with everything to lose

At first you seemed so good, I learned the truth
Behind the chemicals, there lurks a fool

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
So you understand, why your golden hand failed the test
To beat the best
There’s a lesson there, that I want to share,
patiently and physically
