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: Sharper than a Knife (2009)
Sharper Than A Knife
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
It was only a matter of time
Before I had to say goodbye
Johnny 7 knows I'm right
We talk about it all the time

Pre Chorus
I told you lies, I even compromised
I tell you
I'll never feel that way again

Chorus
Why did you try to change me I thought you'd realise?
It took me so long, but now that you're gone I'm fine!
You hurt me so bad, I don't know if you can understand
That your love cut me sharper than a knife

Verse 2
Now I hope you understand
Biggest person in the land
That is something you are not
My self respect is all I've got

Repeat Pre Chorus

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Hotter
Hotter
Written by John von Ahlen

Chorus
You're just what I'm looking for
I just wish you looked a little bit hotter
We could be so perfect together
What a shame you aren't a little bit hotter

Verse 1
What a shame we didn’t meet like this before
I'm waiting for
The one next door

Pre Chorus
Think twice we're all the same in different ways
But sometimes it pays
To go your separate ways

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
So much time, it passes by from day to day
But it's okay
Just look the other way

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Track Name: I am Human
I Am Human
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
There are moments in your life
When you change
Take a moment to decide, re-arrange
Do you suffer with the pain
Look around you
Don't you live your life in shame
Because you're not to blame

Pre Chorus
Don't you know, that you are strong
In the silence you will carry on
You're not a number and you're not a slave
They can't remove the love they never gave

Chorus
Touch me, hold me, feel me, be me
Touch me, hold me, feel me, be me
I am human and I need you
To understand that things that you do
Maybe we can start the healing
And understand the way I'm feeling

Verse 2
First you tell a little lie, and it's easy
Then the time it passes by
You are not free
If you listen to the world
It can hurt you
Have you lived my life in shame
Because you're not the same?

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Isn't tt Strange
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: Supermagic
Supermagic
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Call my number, I need a friend
Let’s stay together, be there till the end

Pre Chorus
I go, go, go, go
I’m crazy for your love and it’s starting to show
There’s something you should know
Know, know, know
I got you on my mind
And I’m ready to go

Chorus
Supermagic is what you’ve always been to me
You’re taking me so higher
Higher than a love should ever be

Verse 2
New sensation, I need it again
Supernatural, get out of my head

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
Don’t let me go, don’t leave me, be mine tonight
There’s no radio and no TV, it’s gonna be alright
Track Name: I Sing the Body Electric
I Sing The Body Electric
Written by John von Ahlen
Verse 1
When the river turns against you,
And the rhythm starts to hurt you
There must be someone there who knows how you feel

Pre Chorus
Turn your love around
Turn your love around
Suddenly you found what you've been missing
(and then you say to me)

Chorus
I sing the body electric
I sing the body electric

Verse 2
When forever turns to never
And the promise, that you held so dear
Becomes a shadow of all our pain

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
So maybe we know, when our worlds collide
We'll be fine
The Heaven we know cannot be defined
But we must sing the praises of angels tonight
(and then you say to me)
Track Name: Creep
Creep
Written by Radiohead, Albert Hammond & Mike Hazlewood

Verse 1
When you were here before, couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel, your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather, In a beautiful world
I wish I was special, you're so very special

Chorus
But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

Verse 2
I don't care if it hurts, I want to have control
I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I'm not around
You're so very special, I wish I was special

Repeat Chorus

She's running out again
She's running out
She run, run, run, run

Verse 3
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

Repeat Chorus

I don't belong here...

Sharper Than A Knife

Johnny 7 knows I'm right
We talk about it all the time

Pre Chorus
I told you lies, I even compromised

I'll never feel that way again

Biggest person in the land
That is something you are not
My self respect is all I've got

Repeat Pre Chorus

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Enjoy the Silence
Enjoy The Silence
Written by Martin Gore



Verse 1
Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

Chorus
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Verse 2
Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable
Track Name: Silent Morning feat. Ryan Adames
Silent Morning
Written by Noel Pagan

Verse 1
I'm on fire, my emotions run so deep
You vowed to love me
Is that a vow you'd keep
Your smile is so tender
You've got me sighing a sweet surrender
Your touch is so pleasing
Makes me warm inside
Makes me feel I'm alive

Pre Chorus
And I can't resist your heavenly bliss
The magic concealed in your kiss
You must realize what I see in your eyes
Takes me beyond the skies

Chorus
Silent Morning, I wake up and you're not by my side
Silent Morning, You know how hard I try
Silent Morning, They say a man's not supposed to cry
Silent Morning, Why did your love have to be a lie

Verse 2
I'm on fire
And you're my every desire
A living fantasy
And you know just what to do for me
I love the things you do
I'm here open arms waiting for you
Welcome whispers
Makes me warm inside
Makes me feel I'm alive
