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: Isn't It Strange (People Theatre's Snowball Remix)
Isn't It Strange
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Isn't it strange, the moment we met?
The passion we felt, the lack of regret
I stare at a photo sent over a week ago
And isn't it strange, how quickly we fell?

Chorus
Now isn't it strange when the world you knew
Is tumbling down, into something new
Now don't be afraid it's the moment
You lived your life for
It's Heaven and Hell, and we all play a part
I'm watching my perfect world fall apart
The changes are here, I won't fight what
I lived my life for

Verse 2
Isn't it strange, whenever it rains?
The message it sends, to the heart and the brain
Then suddenly I am feeling the terror climb
And isn't it strange how a memory fades?

Track Name: When The Walls Came Tumbling Down (People Theatre's Born Again Mix)
When The Walls Came Tumbling Down
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Eternal, don't tell me the things that I already know
Distorted, your vision of me is disturbed I know
So Fatal, I already knew that the walls would fall
In Sadness, are memories always the first to go?

Chorus
It's all right now
I feel the pain, I call your name
It's all that I can do
It's all right now
I'll take the blame, and walk with shame
There's nothing I can do.

Verse 2
So frightened, I don't know if I can carry on
So empty, the places that you and I used to know
I'm Fragile, please treat me with kindness and tenderness
And maybe, I won't keep this feeling of uselessness

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
I know that loneliness,
Might seem like emptiness
But with just one caress
I'm brand new
Track Name: Time (People Theatre's Blessing Mix)
Time
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Follow the light
You won't find anyone
You won't find anything
Only the secrets that you feared

See how the light
It blinds you every time
And leaves the darkest sky
brighter than anything you feared

Chorus
Time to say goodbye (Knowing that we only have a moment)
Time to say goodbye (Maybe in the end we all are blessed)
Time to say goodbye (Feel the universe starting over)
Time to say goodbye (Waiting for the end, of all we know)

Verse 2
Beyond the light,
We feel the helplessness
We fear the emptiness
Knowing oblivion is near

But at the end,
We believe everything
Will redeem all our sins
But do we know anything?

Repeat Chorus

Coda
There's no one here, there's no one left
So beautiful, the emptiness
There's no more fear, there's no regret
So beautiful, the emptiness
Track Name: Promised Land (People Theatre's Diamond Mix)
Promised Land
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Time waits for no one, but I’m waiting for you
I change the whole world for you
I break for no one, but I’m breaking for you
Five days of sorrow waiting for you
Waiting for you

Bridge
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

Chorus
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

Verse 2
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

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
I want the feeling, the feeling, the feeling
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
Track Name: Somebody II (People Theatre's Impatience Mix)
Somebody II
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Life is the great decider
And life is the great divider
Life is what you get when all else fails

Pre Chorus
Maybe there's more than meets the eye
Could be the reason why I lie

Chorus
Somebody's waiting for me
Is there somebody out there for me?
Somebody's waiting for me
Is there someone to make me believe?

Verse 2
Life is the great decider
And life is the great divider
Life is what you get when hope it fades

Monologue
I don't live in the moment, I live on the timeline
Things always seemed different to me
I saw things that others didn't see
I could look at a face and see the whole life in a second, stretched out in front of me
Like a road map, like a road
From the very first step to the very last breath
From the face of a child to the final words of an old man
It's all there in the blink of an eye
Terrible and fixed forever, fixed forever
Forever, forever

Track Name: Wildlife (People Theatre's Range Mix)
Wildlife
Written by John von Ahlen

Chorus
Fall in love with the night
Don't let the sun burn your eyes
We are young and alive
We are wildlife

Verse 1
We all feel the same, but still we hide
To the front we push the fear aside
Falling faster into light
I won't let you go
Oh no no

Remember
Forever
Together we fall apart
Right from the start

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
See the life in our eyes
Forever young and despised
But we don't compromise
Forever young and alive

Fall in love again
Feel the passion and the pain
Give your heart to a friend
Could be worth it in the end

Repeat Chorus

Aeronaut
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
I'm singing :
"Believe me, I'm not lost.
Of course not!"

Pre Chorus 1
Will you take care?
Will you be there?
Hold me gently?
Be my guide?

Chorus
Let it be, you will see,
Things appear so much better in the light now
If you shine a light now
Can you shine a little light?

Verse 2
Forgiven for your loss
I travel the world, I must cross

Pre Chorus 2
Maybe somehow
I can grow now
Won't be long now
Live my life

Track Name: Eye In The Sky (People Theatre's Glass Mix)
Eye In The Sky
Written by Alan Parsons / Eric Woolfson
Verse 1
Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't gonna give anymore, Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Verse 2
Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more, believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

Chorus
I am the eye in the sky, looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules, dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more, to know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Verse 3
Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry, I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving
Track Name: A Little Respect (People Theatre's War Mix)
A Little Respect
Written by Andy Bell, Vince Clarke

Verse 1
I try to discover
A little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
Why you're making me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Chorus
Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me

Verse 2
And if I should falter
Would you open your arms out to me
We can make love not war
And live at peace in our hearts
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
What religion or reason
Could drive a man to forsake his lover

Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
You know you're making me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Over and over

Let the chauffeur drive
He got the rear view in his sight
