Track Name: Paradise feat Marcella Detroit (Eric Kupper Radio Edit)
Paradise
Written by Lillia Auzou & John von Ahlen

Intro
It's gonna be like Paradise x2

Verse 1
We were standing at a cross road
I felt so torn apart
I was standing alone in the rain
And you were just another lonely heart

Pre Chorus
We are crossing over the rivers of life
You think the other side, would be like paradise
But we are still two very lonely hearts
Living on the other side of a bridge over water

Chorus
The time has come to let you go
Let you go
The time has come to let you go
Let you go

Verse 2
We were drifters in the dark, searching for love
Drawn to each other by the need of another
We walked into the unknown together

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
I'm gonna let you go (x8)

Pre Chorus 2
The time has come to let you go, to let you go (x4)

Track Name: Nemesis (Demo V2)
Nemesis
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Samurai inside your mind
With visions of another life
If I should fly away tonight
Don't follow me to the morning light
Ancient life in satellite
Reflections of a modern life
With this in mind I cast aside
All notions of an alibi

Pre Chorus 1
Oh my, the Blood is mine, philistine
Oh my, the West is mine, justified
Oh my, the East is mine, satisfied
Oh my, the Beast inside, terrified

Chorus
Caught in a vision of love
Lost in the moment of how should it be

Verse 2
Build a life for me and you
Till Russia comes and the Yankees too
The flesh and blood that I provide
Should oscillate and satisfy
What could you do but sympathise
The eye that sees for miles and miles
When power comes it leaves you weak
Till you transform a power freak
Track Name: Sueño Latino (Demo V1)
Sueño Latino
Música de John von Ahlen. Letra de Louise Love.

Verse 1
Soñando en color
De un baile
Que lleva el dolor
Con su amor

Pre Chorus 1
Palabras nuevas
Para mi lengua
Pero conocido
Por mi corazon

Chorus
Sueno Latino
Melodia Universal

Verse 2
Yo miro la luna
Sobre el volcan
Sobre esta lugar
Que no conozco

Pre Chorus 2
Ya tuve este sueño
Este sueño latino
Conozco mi corazon
La luz de la luna
Track Name: A Question of Love (Speak and Spell Remix)
A Question Of Love
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Take all that you want
Maybe
Not more than enough
Lately
The stars up above
Changing
And down here on earth
Same thing

Pre Chorus
Time is ending
It's hardly worth a mention
Even so I
should I call to your attention
Our love is dying
I can see it in your eyes
Those who adored you
Clearly now despised

Chorus
Don't break my heart
I've had more than enough
Please don't take me there again
If it's a question of love
Or it's just not enough
Then the message is clear

Verse 2
There's nothing inside
Empty
Take all that you want
Blame me
A greater divide
Massive
That moment of lust
Passive
