New video, trying my hand at animation - a dancing bullet lipstick and other cool effects. This original song, Lipstick Assassin, is our secret agent tune, a song that expresses a woman's seductive power which she has over man. It's a Peter Gunn / 007 type song. . --------------Lipstick Assassin--------------- I’m simply confused about your deception Don’t be abused and try to make it all night . I’m broken down by your kisses, and I surrender Defeat is all right . You’ve got a plan for me but I don’t agree to it Got to play like you always want it, but you never need it . I looked for a reason, and then looked into your eyes You always haunt me, taunt me; make me want to fantasize I’ll never fall for your perfection – your obsession Everything’s going the way she wants it – your deception . I will never fall to my knees for your affection Not tonight- Not tonight Lipstick Assassin . She wears lipstick Lipstick Assassin She wears the lipstick Could be the Lipstick Assassin You’ve got your target on me . I won’t be abused and try to make it all night . Baby, you’ve got your target on me Lipstick Assassin Looking my direction Being a distraction Lipstick Assassin . A Lipstick Assassin . She wears lipstick She's an assassin Just a little taste She wore lipstick She’s got it bad for me . Lipstick Assassin Lipstick - - - Assassin Lipstick - - - Assassin

Finger on the Trigger (Remix) A new hard rocking / lead ripping tune about a hopeless romantic. ------------Finger on the Trigger------------- If looks could kill, I’d be dead already Lying in a pool of romance That you left me in From coming on too strong . Came on like a ton of bricks, yeah Let 'em fall I don’t care, that’s where I’m at Yeah, that’s where I’m at . I thought you were dangerous I thought you were bad for me Got me on my knees tonight Begging for what I need . Got my finger on the trigger of a loaded gun again Shooting through a barrel of love aiming for my heart again Got my finger on the trigger of a loaded gun again Shooting down a barrel of love aiming for my heart again . She was gonna meet me here It’s not fair she’s gone again Took my heart and left me in despair Left me in ashes and ruin I’m a prisoner of what you’re doing to my heart again And now you’re leaving yeah yeah . I've got to live forever I mean it's now or never She could be the one I’m needin’, leavin’ . If I knew that looks could kill I would have run away Heading back to the place Where I could hide away . I knew you were dangerous I knew you were bad for me Got me on my knees tonight 'cause I was too blind to see . Knew you were dangerous I knew you were bad for me Knew you were dangerous I knew you were bad for me . Got my finger on the trigger of a loaded gun again Shooting down a barrel of love aiming for my heart again . I knew you were dangerous I knew you were bad for me Got my finger on the trigger of a loaded gun again

Our new song "Moth to the Flame" now with actual lyrics and remixed. ----------------Moth to the Flame-------------- Is it starlight? Is it candle flame that brings you to me? And your name Is it sunlight? Cause it moves so bright Rising above the night’s horizon Bringing you to me Like a moth to the flame . Your light, never fading Shining the way But I know that you lead me Just like a moth to the flame . If you want it If you like it If you need it Come and get it . If you want it And you like it If you need it Get it tonight Is it starlight? Is it candles? Is it moonlight drawing you near to me? Like a moth to the flame Burning my name on your lips If so, never let go . If you want it If you like it If you need it Come and get it . If you want it If you like it If you need it Come and get it Come and get it Come and get it . Moth to the flame Moth to the flame Moth, moth to the flame Moth, moth to the flame . Lead me like a moth to the flame I’ll never tell you I’ll never fear - the pain As long as you say my name

Rocking Song - Mama Told Me - still working on the production though... ----------------Mama Told Me------------------ I’m fired up. I’m heading downtown, looking for the time of my life. I’m running hot, I’m running cold, destination unknown. I never listened, no. I didn’t care. Living large. Living fast. Always trying to make it last. . Mama told me. Look both ways before you cross the street. Mama told me. Get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat. Mama told me. Women will be the death of me. Mama told me. I should have listened. . I’m a freight train. Headed nowhere, but I’m having the time of my life. It’s just fun, it’s not a crime. You gotta like it, and love it, to take it every time. Life’s not fair you fake it everywhere and the party goes on and on. Life’s getting shorter, the days are getting longer but you gotta ride it to the end of the line. . Mama told me. Look both ways before you cross the street. Mama told me. Get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat. Mama told me. I should have listened. Mama told me. . Mama told me. Look both ways before you cross the street. Mama told me. Get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat. Mama told me. Women will be the death of me. Mama told me. . I never listened to what my dearest mother said, Her timeless wisdom: always running through my head. You think you know it all – take your mama’s advice. Don’t you lie, don’t you cry, play nice. . Mama told me. Look both ways before you cross the street. Mama told me. Get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat. Mama told me. Girls will be the death of me. Mama told me. Yeah. Mama told me. Mama told me. Mama told me.

I apologize, accidentally removed this from SoundCloud. Had to re-upload "My Imagination" A 'rough draft' of our newest song. -----------------My Imagination--------------- It's my… It's my… It's my… It's my… . See the mirage, Crumbling like a fake facade. The air is clear, sunlight reflecting of a tear. . The night is tense Walk to the darkness, I'm blind. It makes no sense, is it real this time? . I duck and run Leaving here to follow The rest of our lives . It was just my imagination, Running wild, running through my head Or was it just my imagination, Running wild, bringing you to my bed. . I’ve got to know… . A ghost in the darkness Floating like a sphere I never know just what might appear But I can see your face in the mirror Of my soul I fear . That’s why I never deduce Turn on, now have your way with me God knows just what love you see in me That’s why I sit staring in the night . It was just my imagination, Running wild, running through my head Or was it just my imagination, Running wild, bringing you to, to my bed. . It was just ….. My Imagination

re-mix of an original about being down and out but not giving up. ----------Broken Down & Dirty---------- you found me in an alley you've seen me in the darkest of holes Oblivious to your kind a soul in me is hard to find I don't have any meaning anymore but when the light finds me once more I'll tell the world I can't take anymore I was once Broken down and dirty like a rusty machine that just got fired up when the light finds me once more I'll tell the world I can't take anymore Broken Down and dirty you might have hoped you lost me but I always find my way back - ready for the attack no prison has ever held me a spirit always breaks free I've got the key to break out - from being broken down and dirty broken down and dirty broken down and dirty but when the light finds me once more I'll tell the world I can't take anymore I was once Broken - down and dirty but when the light finds me once more I'll tell the world I can't take anymore Broken - down and dirty I was once Broken - down and dirty I was once Broken - down and dirty but when the light finds me once more I'll tell the world I can't take anymore I was once Broken - down and dirty

An original piano ballad with synth and guitar. Love and life can be bitter sweet! ----------------Bitter Sweet--------------- Where did you go last night Everything was just right Sugar-coated but bitter sweet A little attitude – a lot of sympathy Some part of harmony . Just need a place to be And a little bit of strategy I'll get us there I swear it wasn’t fair . You left – Bitter Sweet Broken Heart – Bitter Sweet Only Love – Bitter Sweet Ah–ha . Where did we go so wrong? I could feel it growing strong So sweet you became a part of me Love it when you look into my eyes Made me feel so alive . Love was sweet to me I can’t believe it Her love was too good to be true Sweet to me - Sweet to you . You left – Bitter Sweet Broken Heart – Bitter Sweet Only Love – Bitter Sweet Ah–ha . You left – Bitter Sweet Broken Heart – Bitter Sweet Only Love – Bitter Sweet Ah–ha . Lead . You left – Bitter Sweet Broken Heart – Bitter Sweet Only Love – Bitter Sweet Ah–ha . Lead . You left – Bitter Sweet Broken Heart – Bitter Sweet Only Love is Bitter Sweet Ah–ha . Repeat
