Daniel Passes Great rock songs. The Nightshift is a slow burn of a song with great melodies and so very catchy. Favorite track: The Nightshift.

My mind, speaks a thousand words It shoots from the hip and it hurts Keeps me awake like a curse I toss and turn and hate my mind My mind, wants to crucify me. Kick back and watch me bleed. I take a pill to get my relief. It's the only way I know to unwind, Oh I can't believe - It feels like I'm Losing My Mind Feels like I'm Losing My Mind My mind, my psychiatrist said: "It doesn't feel at home in your head Better learn to get some rest You're only gonna make yourself worse" I sing 'cos it keeps things simple A language of signs and symbols I analyse each scar and wrinkle Anything to keep myself blind Otherwise I find - It feels like I'm Losing My Mind Feels like I'm Losing My Mind My mind, filled with fantasy I drown in my lust and my greed. The world the way I want it to be I don't believe I'm one of a kind There must be someone like me - It feels like I'm Losing My Mind Feels like I'm Losing My Mind.

Propaganda 02:57
I know this ground beneath me Is slipping away I hear the message you're preaching I try to escape Oh forgive me, if I'm not myself Oh forgive me, if I don't want your help From experts and preachers, From textbooks and teachers. It's all propaganda From tabloids and talkshows, From billboards to god knows It's just propaganda. There's no time to count the civilian There's work to be done. For until these billions are trillions Then war will go on. Oh forgive me, if I deviate. Oh forgive me, if I try to escape The close up, the soundbite The replay, the gunfight It's all propaganda. The tax cuts and think tanks, The loopholes, the world bank.. Oh take a look around ya It's all propaganda Oh forgive me if I deviate Oh forgive me if I try to escape Away from this propaganda of Illusion, confusion, delusion, intrusion It's all propaganda. From New York to Beijing If we lose then they win. From Big Macs to weight loss From junkies to Kate Moss From catwalks to blue jeans From sweatshops to Gucci. Oh take a look around ya It's all Propaganda.

Your working day now complete The world outside falls asleep, a cradle to the cold This situation tonight, I'm here, you're there It's not right, to have and not to hold The Nighshift lay before me The Nightshift make me stay away Just know that I would love to be, with you But I can't do right now you see There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you An invitation to spend The evening out with my friends I regretfully decline The chance to lay down beside My baby for the night I had to let slip by The Nighshift lay before me The Nightshift make me stay away Just know that I would love to be, with you But I can't do right now you see There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you I look around, I can't come down When there's so much to be done So understand, it's who I am The Nightshift is what I've become Just know that I would love to be, with you I can't do right now you see There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you When your down remember this Close your eyes, make a wish cos it's my alibi When your lost remember this Close your eyes and picture this Sleep tonight, sleep tonight.

Pretty Girl 03:01
I was ready to leave Until I saw you walk through And now you're looking at me Like I've been looking at you Take a look around you You stand out a mile There'd be no-one here without you And so I ask myself why? You're such a pretty girl That's such a pretty dress So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this? Cold hearts and cocaine smiles Are all that's here inside So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this? The room could burn to the ground For all that anyone cares That's why it's hard to believe Someone like you is standing there Take a look around you There's nothing to see There'd be no-one here without you Are you lonesome tonight? You're such a pretty girl That's such a pretty dress So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this? Where lovers, friends and fans Are measured out in grams. What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this? To me it almost seems absurd Of all the rooms in all the world Oh I wonder what brought you here You're such a pretty girl Did daddy buy that dress? What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?

I gotta tell you a secret, Don't know where to begin. Swore I wouldn't repeat it But I just can't keep it in See late last night this girl I know She brought herself round to my home Said "we've been friends and that's OK, Gonna make that situation change" Gotta tell you a secret I don't know where to begin Swore I wouldn't repeat it But I just can't keep it in So there we were just her and I Making love and drinking wine. And it was good almost divine But I had this voice in the back of my mind You see this girl I know her man This man doesn't know his girl And it breaks my heart to be the one to tell This girl is your girl Yes your girl wanna be my girl I gotta tell you a secret I can't keep it inside See this girl of yours I can't get her of my mind Knowing what you know now Don't you think you're better off without her? Your girl wanna be my girl Yes, our girl wanna be my girl I don't wanna fight but your girl wanna be my girl So let go, your girl wanna be mine.

Stone Cold 04:13
You sell yourself 'cause other people do You've seen their smiles, now you want the same things too Your secret's safe, you make sure it's locked inside A secret place that no-one but you can find Stone cold and silent, no word from above Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love In need of proof your world spins silently The search for truth you said it's inside of me Stone cold and silent, no word from above Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love Lay down your arms, show me your scars I'm not here to criticise, I'm here if you want me Turn on the lights, lift up the night It's time to reconcile or stay this way forever The house we built, you've made a cheap hotel You've sold your soul and now you want mine as well Be careful what gets out, you don't know who's about Maybe we should whisper Stone cold and silent, no word from above Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love There's so much here worth fighting for, we're all the same There's no-one here worth hiding from, we're all the same

You wash your hands just like a surgeon You wash away what gets too near One more kiss without affection Don't run too far from here One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it, One day you'll love the things you hate One day you love it, one day you'll love it Until that day A dreamer dreams, that's just his nature The whole of life inside one day Who needs love without adventure So don't keep me far away One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it One day you'll love the things you hate One day you love it, one day you'll love it Until that day You wait, Until that day The moment stops and lasts forever, There's no more songs inside your head You've crucified yourselves together Now your blood will speak instead One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it One day you'll love the things you hate One day you love it, one day you'll love it Until that day You wait, Until that day. I hear what you say I don't believe it I know what you say I don't believe it, I don't believe it, I don't believe it.

Godless 03:26
I try to tear myself away I'm gripped by the news I've heard it said in times of war The first to die is the truth I'm damned if I know the answer I need one today I'm damned if I know the answer So Godless I wait. Shame upon the wounded soul Who finds his voice in the guns Shame on you who use this fear A plague upon your sons I'm damned if I know the answer I need one today I'm damned if I know the answer So Godless I wait I try to tear myself away I'm gripped by the news. The lines are drawn, the wars go on Christian, Muslim and Jew I'm damned if I know the answer We need one today I'm damned if I know the answer So Godless we wait I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know

Settle Down 03:29
I think I'll settle down I'm getting tired of all this running round. My body says it time It's time I find myself a quiet life. But I step outside like a newborn child, & I wanna play. Oh I've tried to be good and I wish that I could. But sometimes it don't work that way. All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?" I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down. It's time to take account Assess my assets, maybe go without Tighten up the strings Look for pleasure in the simple things So I close my eyes but it gets inside, no matter what I do Oh your touch feels right but please don't tell my wife Lets keep this just between me & you All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?" I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down. I've pissed my time against a wall & look at me now What have I got, nothing at all Just memories and please don't those from me All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing" I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.

My mind dreams of a distant land My new reality of sun, sex and sand All the sweet sensations & high expectations On my knees I pray Let the good times come my way This cold breeze brings me thoughts of escape To palm trees and hot summer days From the Good Vibrations to the Seven Nations Let the music play Let the good times come my way Blue skies, I'm dreaming that I'm sleeping under Blue skies, my night becomes my day Blue skies, I know that someday I will be under Blue skies, let the good times come my way It's all I'm thinking of It's all I want to see It's all I'm hoping for Let the good times come for me

The shopkeeper closed up A town turned it's nose up He never cried when his mother died, they say Began with a rumour And spread like a tumour His choice of song, it gave the game away It's only rock ˜n' roll, it's never gonna change the world And I'm tired of this town Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries I look around at the madness of crowds A shopkeeper moved on, The high street improved on But fingers point, and heads begin to nod A town grows suspicious, the gossip malicious, For no-one here's above the law of God. It's only kiss ˜n' tell, I hear the Chinese whisper well, But I'm tired of this town, Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries, I look around at the madness... I believe you'd like for me to be the same as you 'Cause don't you know that life would be so easy But you see I don't believe the things they say to me To me it's just madness gone mad The story just plays on, McCarthy to Salem, You're Communist or just a witch by day. Now let's keep a vigil and watch each individual, For signs that they may deviate or stray It's only rock 'n' roll, it's never gonna change the world And I'm tired of this town. Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries, I look around at the madness of crowds.
