--------------------------------------------- 1. Desire in overdrive --------------------------------------------- Underneath a black blanket my words must sound a mess When longing for a shadow to undress It's totally fucked We only meet in the shade in your shadow in my shame Desire in overdrive up - down don't drown Hoping for a better world than this life behind the shame When longing is waiting and waiting to reveal the pain I still miss Our first kiss When our love was full of bliss I can't replace I can't erase This love we have is more than grace Desire in overdrive up - down don't drown In love with your shadow In love with my shade Desire in overdrive up - down don't drown ---------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------- 2. Stitch my name --------------------------------------------- We made great love And better war We'd kill all light And fuck down the stars I could taste your fears And lick your scars You stole my heart And now you've moved away Stitch my name Onto your back To make sure You won't lose track You made me float And now you burn my eyes With truth and beauty And all your lies I adore your tears Your holy cries How far we've come Until you've blocked my mind Stitch my name Onto your back To make sure You won't lose track ---------------------------------------------

Room 04:29
--------------------------------------------- 4. Room --------------------------------------------- Don't want to be seen Don't want to be mean Don't want what I deserve Don't want to see why Don't want to hear your lie Don't want to stay here a while And drown my dreams In your room And lose my fears In your room Don't want to leave town Don't want to go down Don't want to be your shadow Don't want to say ‘let's go' Don't want to feel low Don't want your tasteless desire And drown my dreams In your room And kiss my tears In your room Don't want to feel the shame I see I want to break these boundaries I want to break these walls Break these walls around you I can't stand the pain I see We share the same cage You've got all these lies All these lies And drown my dreams In your room And lose my fears In your room And drown my dreams In your room And kiss my tears In your room ---------------------------------------------

Faces 04:11
--------------------------------------------- 5. Faces --------------------------------------------- I am not sure what's in my head Or on my skin and in my bed And every time I see your face It's me or you, it's out of place I get real frantic from this race Born romantic, it's not my pace And if we're all just dreaming life You're just another fucking lie I am not sure what's in my head Or on my skin and in my bed And every time I see your face It must be history I chase I am not sure what's in my head Or on my skin and in my bed It's me or you, I can't replace It's me or you, it's out of place I am not sure what's in my head ---------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------- 6. Love's victory march --------------------------------------------- What a way to fall What a way to crawl What a way to fall What a way to crawl The end is nearer Than the stars The hurt is clearer Than love's victory march You, the end of me The only one who's free You just woke up from hell And got no one to tell The end is nearer Than the stars The hurt is clearer Than love's victory march Than love's victory march ---------------------------------------------

Sin city 02:51
--------------------------------------------- 7. Sin city --------------------------------------------- I'm waiting for someone To take me home I'm scared here on scandal street Waiting for a safe ride Or a way to get in I'm waiting for someone To take me home I'm scared in this city of sin Pigs want real good lovers And a way to get in I'm waiting for someone To take me home I'm lost and wandering looking for a way out In a city of sin ---------------------------------------------
8.
--------------------------------------------- 8. What about it? --------------------------------------------- The mystery of life In a siren's rise Is an intimate revolution Our embrace History's solution Can't breathe, can't come Can't breathe, can't come Deep in the heart is What it's all about So, what about it What about it? What about it? Your spirit, my scream My ecstasy Is an intimate revolution Our embrace History's solution Can't breathe, can't come Can't breathe, can't come Our walls explode In a silent way So, what about it What about it? What about it? So, what about it ---------------------------------------------

City sight 03:52
--------------------------------------------- 10. City sight --------------------------------------------- In this hotel lounge We celebrate my flight And I do not want What I don't have But I desire more Than a shared laugh Give me more (I should decide what I have in mind) The elevator Up to a dream 1, 2, 3, 4 My sheets thin In a room of sin You get out City sight, soul burning City sight, soul burning Fan stops turning Fabric sliding Bodies colliding City sight, soul burning City sight, soul burning ---------------------------------------------

Ice 03:29
--------------------------------------------- 11. Ice --------------------------------------------- I'm counting till December Then we all stand in a row In the cold Waiting for the ice show skaters They will keep me rapt for ages In my dream A victory I'll always be the one with the winning number My dream We skate on ice Drinking champagne When your hands are cold you hold mine We watch the trees and leaves And drink all night. All the cliches I always always dreamt about ---------------------------------------------

'Dutch artist Lilian Hak is a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer. Her music travels through cinematic pop, jazz, avant-garde electronica with a wide palette of instrumentation for the arrangements. It is rich, playful and powerful. All of the many different facets Lilian embodies come to life through her music for theatre, cinema and album recordings.'

------------------------------------------------------------
" ... dromerige elektronische avant-garde ... duistere beats en knerpende soundscapes ... " (Het Parool)

" ... pick up the new single by Dutch singer Lilian Hak on vinyl and CD, 'Faces', out on Steamin' Soundworks, with mixes by Vector Lovers and two exclusive mixes I created. It finds a place between Madonna and Peaches ... " (Scanner)

" ... Ze heeft de sound van Kosheen, de liedjes van Moloko en de overweldigende kracht van The Kills. Op haar tweede album Love's Victory March combineert ze degelijke, fijne popliedjes met een dreigende sfeer van synthesizers en een zwetende beat van drumcomputers. Electro met hier en daar wat gitaren, vervormingen, vette bassen en haar indringende stemgeluid ... " (OOR)

" ... Intense elektropopplaat, dit keer wél met goede liedjes ... " (KindaMusik)
