I Am One

1. I Am One
2. The Invisible Boy (live)
3. The Real Me (live)
4. The Great Misconceptions of Me (live)







1. I Am One

Demolition, mission man
The old boy is hating me
Iíve become the one, they warned me about
Oh heís gonna die before me
Oh I am one
Love I am one
I got something to prove
And nothing to lose
Oh I am one.

18 bloody roses, each a year that bled my soul
18 and numb, lím somebodyís son
Mama looks what líve become.

Will he take me down to the gallows?
And kill the boy inside the man
Iím just a rock and roll nigger
I know he donít know what I am.

I donít see my face in the mirror
And more or understand
Why am I the chosen one?
Iím the crimson man
Long live, long live, long live the king of mercy
Long live, long live
Is there no love, I am one
The side you see, is the nasty me.




2. The Invisible Boy (live)

I was the boy unwanted a prisoner lím born to them
My brother was the one, that couldnít do no wrong
And I was there dying in the shadow of him.

Jonathon to his father
Red crimson red am I the invisible boy?
Feel the strap cross my back
Yeah the strap cross my back
Yeah lím the new whipping boy.

Who am I the orphan son you would never need?
Who am I cause lím the boy only the mirror sees
Who am I the slave you gave just the air I breathe?
Who am I cause lím the boy only the mirror sees.

Jonathon
Oh I got the same old reruns horror movies in my head
And I canít rest the scare me to death
But if lím not alive how can I be dead?

Jonathon to his father
Red, crimson red, am I the invisible boy?
Feel the strap, cross my back
Yeah lím the new whipping boy.

Jonathon to the mirror
Oh why me?

The mirror
Why him.

Jonathon
Can you tell me?

The mirror
Itís confession again?
Come talk to me I see in your eyes
Titantic misery ashamed that youíre alive
Iím the face that you see
When the face isnít yours
Iím the mirror my boy.

Some people never go crazy
What truly boring lives they must lead
Is there no love to shelter me?
Only love, love sets me free.




3. The Real Me (live)

I went back to the doctor to get another shrink
I sit and tell him about my weekend, but
He never can change what he thinks
Can you see the real me, doctor, doctor
Can you see the real me, doctor, ooh doctor


I went back to my mother, I said I'm crazy Ma, help me
She said "I know how it feels son, cause it runs in the family"
C'mon tell me
Can you see the real me, mother, mother
Can you see the real me, mother, woah mother


Can you see, can you see, can you see the real me
Can you see, can you see the real me
The real me, the real me, the real me


The cracks between the pavement stones
Like rivers of flowing rain
Strange people who know me
From behind every window pane
The girl I used to love lives in this yellow house
Yesterday she passed me by, she don't want to know me now


Can you see the real me, can ya, can ya
Can you see the real me, woah yea


I ended up with the preacher, full of lies and hate
I seemed to scare him a little, ha ha
So he showed me to the golden gate
Whoa can you see the real me preacher, preacher
Can you see the real me woah yea
Can you see, can you see, can you see, woah yeah
Can you see the real me, doctor, doctor
Can you see the real me, mama
Can you see the real me me me me




4. The Great Misconceptions of Me (live)

Welcome to the show the great finales finally here
I thank you for coming into my theatre of fear
Welcome to the show, youíre all witnesses you see
A privileged invitation to the last right of me.

Remember me? You canít save me
Mama you never needed me
No crimson king, look in my eye, youíll see
Mama lím lonely itís only me, only me.

I donít wanna be, I donít wanna be, I donít wanna be
The crimson idol of a million
I donít wanna be, I donít wanna be, I donít wanna be
The crimson idol of a million eyes, of a million.

I am the prisoner of the paradise I dreamed
The idol of a million lonely faces look at me
Behind the mask of sorrow, four doors of doom behind my eyes
Iíve got their footprints all across my crimson mind.

Long live, long live, long live the king of mercy
Long live, long live.

There is no love, the shelter me
Only love, love set me free
No love, to shelter me, only love, love set me free
I was the warrior, with an anthem in my soul
The idol of eight thousand lonely days of rage ago
And remember me when it comes your time to choose
Be careful what you wish for it might just come true.

Red, crimson red, am I the invisible boy
The strip on my back
Red, crimson red, no I was never to be
Only one crimson son, no it never was me.

Living in the limelight little did I know?
I was dying in the shadows and the mirror was my soul
It was all I ever wanted, everything I dreamed
But the dream became my nightmare and no one could hear me scream
With these six strings I make a noose
To take my life, itís time to choose
The headlines read of my suicide, of my suicide.
