Lyrics

Raising the Blood
Music & Lyrics by Nikki Forova
(c) 2010

Raising the blood
To conquer you
Here’s the woman
I never thought I’d become -
Weapon super-sized

My own Auschwitz camp
By all means
They don’t get it’s my melody inside
Sweet beyond control
Secret only for you to know

Chorus:
Yellow parade
Sleeping on the roadside
Cold body in bloom
For your eyes to see
Wake me up to realize
I have everything...
To be happy

Snap me out of it
Each time you come
You do it so well
At least for today
I won’t cut myself...

Aren’t you scared to lose
Your sanity?
To soak your spirit red
Being inside my head?
Where’s the end
To your empathy?

Chorus:
Yellow parade
Sleeping on the roadside
Cold body in bloom
For your eyes to see
Wake me up to realize
I have everything

Yellow parade
Sleeping on the roadside
Cold body in bloom
For your eyes to see
Wake me up to realize
I have everything
... to be... happy..
mmm mmm Ah A-a-h!

Instrumental

Chorus:
Yellow parade
Sleeping on the roadside
Cold body in bloom
No one but me
Can wake me up to realize
I have everything

Yellow parade
Sleeping on the roadside
Cold body in bloom
No one but me
Can wake me up to realize
I have everything

I have everything

I have everything
to be happy

Mmmm-mmmm
