Track Name: Travelling Light
travelling light (© Mila Oshin)

is there a place
i’d rather be
than in your mind
as far as i can see
we’re past reality

i’ll count my blessings, pick some reference tools
wrap them up in cotton wool
pack my bags and my golden rules
and i’ll be ready

for the rosebush, the picket fence
for self-defeating common sense
oh gateways to innocence
let me through

i’ll be travelling light
from this day on
don’t try and stop me
i’m already gone

i’ve been going round in circles
for so long
trying to find different corners
to see it from

is there a place
i’d rather be
than in your mind
as far as i can see
we’re past reality

i am tired of dreaming
of looking back
to the wonderful future
you and i once had

i’ll be travelling light
from this day on
don’t try and stop me
i’m already gone
Track Name: Woman
woman (© Mila Oshin)

wowow woman
did i see you last night in your garden of delights
wowow woman
taking your uniforms down from the washing line?

wowow woman
you fight your own kind and your handpicked enemies
wowow woman
down the schoolyards, office blocks and shopping streets

wowow woman
now is the moment to cease your friendly fire
wowow woman
it’s your own prison cell you’ve been guarding all this time

wowow woman
get away from under your own spell
wowow woman
sisters still don’t do it for themselves

proudly you say
“these clothes and this body are mine”
you put your make-up on
but you can’t make up your mind
about what face to wear
when will you be free?

wowow woman
shut your mouth, open your mind
wowow woman
shut your mouth, open your mind

proudly you say
“these clothes and this body are mine”
you put your make-up on
but you can’t make up your mind
about what face to wear
when will you be free?
Track Name: I'm On Fire
i'm on fire (© Mila Oshin)

take your eyes of the road
hands of the wheel
and make me breathe again
make me bleed again
i’m on fire

let’s stop wondering what,
went wrong with us
and make it right
now’s as good a time
as ever

there is nothing that could stop me
i’d run back barefoot through the rain
to find what made us burn
and burn what made us sane
please bring me to my
please bring me to my knees again

take your eyes of the road
hands of the wheel
and make me breathe again
make me bleed again
i’m on fire

we’ve been looking ahead
watching our step
checking the signs
drawing the line

how long is a road?
how far is away?
we won’t be going anywhere
this way

take your eyes of the road
hands of the wheel
and make me breathe again
make me bleed again
i’m on fire,

those who will be waiting
they’ve been waiting
their whole damn lives
now’s as bad a time
as ever
Track Name: Go In Stay In Tune In
go in, stay in, tune in (© Mila Oshin)

turn the lights back on
end of show
don’t ask them why
it’s time to go
remember, they never answered
any questions
and you were happy
to do as you were told

to go in, stay in, tune in
and exercise your remote control
to go in, stay in, tune in
to all the freedom they could handle

you kept your doors closed
while the coasts were cleared
and their smokescreens burnt down
this world you held so dear
where science, became fiction
and hunger became birth control
for those who rose to their challenge
for those too common for their common goal

to go in, stay in, tune in


you left it up to them
to dress you for the occasion
so they let you slip
into something comfortable
(please) don’t question
their intentions now
your privacy
was under control

to go in, stay in, tune in


turn the lights back on
end of show
don’t ask them why
it’s time to go
remember, they never answered
any questions
and you were happy
to do as you were told

to go in, stay in, tune in
and exercise your remote control
to go in, stay in, tune in
to all the freedom you could handle
