THE RICH AND FAMOUS

THE RICH AND FAMOUS

The bands self-titled debut album was released in 2004. Referred to as a definitive classic pop/rock album, this first offering by The Rich and Famous was an experimental journey musically. Far removed from the confines of Kings of the Sun's heavy rock legacy with Jeffrey Hoad playing keyboard for the first time on a recorded album in addition to all other instruments (except sax & drums) the artistic freedom and discovery is clearly evident.

CLASS ARSE

Oh look beyond the razzle, dazzle style above the shine
She starts across the room in the catwalk of her mind
Born into the manner and a silver cocaine spoon
She parts the masses to her favourite tune
Move it up closer now
Got me thinking wow
Watch this vision as she floats by me
She rocks the cool moves, fashion magazines
Starts by breaking, shaking stardom supreme

She got a class arse, take it from me
Such a class arse, something to see
A real class arse, high society
What a class arse shake it for me

Ah daddy makes the money and Versace makes the clothes
She’s magnifique right from her feet up to her pretty nose
Fools I’ve seen droppin’
Slammed back in their place
They make the pass act so priceless slapped across the place
Got to give me some fortune, try to buy me some fame
Know the places, faces, learn to play the game
International jet set don’t kiss on the lips yet
Wash it down with some French champagne

Class arse, take it from me
You got a class arse, it’s something to see
What a class arse, high society
Class arse shake it for me

Oh shake it

Wooh move it up closer now
A little upmarket now
Beyond the porn of my wildest dream
So high maintenance
I’ve got no defence
Can you see me babe I’m down on my knees

For your class arse, take it from me
You got a class arse it’s something to see
A real class arse, high society
Class arse shake it for me
Class arse, take it from me
You got a class arse it’s something to see
A real, for ya, yeah, howl me
Class

Class arse, you do it for me
Class arse, something to see
A real class arse, high society
Class arse

Getting’ down the road
Movin’ down the road
Baby down the road
Baby please don’t go
Baby please don’t go
Mmm

DANCE ALL OVER YOU

On the floor
There is a language that is unspoken
Of heart, body and mind
Magnetic understanding
Lustful expression
Devouring thoughts
Passion roars and whispers
It summons me to your side

I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you
I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you

As my eyes open to the fragrance of your touch
All my senses melt as one this fantasy are not enough
The rhythm of our bodies and this music that we make
Swirling all around us draws us closer, closer our breath touching

I, I wanna dance all over you, all around you
I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you

Take hold of your dreams, take hold of my heart
Break out of those chains that hold us apart
Let go of your fears, let go of your past
Oh fall into my arms now and forever let this feeling last

Let this feeling last
Let this feeling last
Let this feeling last

I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you
I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you

Passion takes us higher, higher
Lust becomes your face
We move as one, our hearts undone
Lost in both time and place
Words are unspoken
Your kiss reads from my lips
Reveals to you my every secret
for desire deepest wish, ohh

I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you
I, I wanna dance all over you, inside you, ohh
I, I wanna dance all over you, all over you

Take hold of your dreams, take hold of my heart
Break out of those chains that hold us apart
Let go of your fears, let go of your past
Oh fall into my arms now and forever make this feeling last

Make this feeling last
Make this feeling last
Make this feeling last

IN ANOTHER WORLD

Space, ooh space
Space is the final frontier
As you hit the stratosphere
Leave the capsule, disappear
Your distant life becomes so clear, it’s true

You’re in another world
In another world
You’re in another world

Communication breaking down
You’re with the stars, I’m on the ground
I only speak to you in dreams
You’re in a place where I can’t hear you scream

You’re in another world
In another world
You’re in another world

I’m never gonna bring you down
Ooh, I’m never gonna bring you down

Yeah

Aah, like Jupiter and Venus there’s lightyears between us
You left a black hole in my heart
Neptune is chilling Uranus so thrilling we’re galaxies apart
So astrologic, stellar and cosmic
A heavenly body rebirth
You’re alienating but I’m gravitating
I’m trying to pull you back to earth

You’re in another world
You’re in another world
You’re in another world
Ooh, in another world

Aah, like Jupiter and Venus there’s lightyears between us
You left a black hole in my heart
Neptune is chilling Uranus so thrilling we’re galaxies apart
So astrologic, stellar and cosmic
A heavenly body rebirth
You’re alienating but I’m gravitating
I’m trying to pull you back to earth

You’re in another world
You’re in another world
You’re in another world

Ooh it’s satellites and asteroids
Nothing here can fill the void
I can’t see you splashing down
It’s looking like I’m heaven bound

You’re in another world
You’re in another world
Ooh, we’re in another world
Ooh, we ain’t never coming down
Ain’t never coming down

I set my telescope on you
I set my telescope on you
I see you dancing on the moon
Luna, Luna, Luna
Ooh, Luna, Luna, Luna, Luna

Aah, like Jupiter and Venus there’s lightyears between us
You left a black hole in my heart
Neptune is chilling Uranus so thrilling we’re galaxies apart
So astrologic, stellar and cosmic
A heavenly body rebirth
You’re alienating but I’m gravitating
I’ll try to pull you back to earth

LET IT GO

You gotta let it go
You gotta let it go
Gotta let it go
Oh, you can’t stop the flow no you gotta let it go

Ooh life is like water
Yeah, it echoes through me
So liquifying
It’s like an endless milk sea

Gotta let it go
You gotta let it go
Gotta let it go
No you can’t stop the flow now you gotta let it go

Gotta let it go

Aah, people see through me (So liquifying)
And thinking I’m made of glass (So liquifying)
I smash my illusion (So liquifying)
Now I’m changing my tracks

Ah yeah, I say
Gotta let it go
You got to let it go
You got to let it go
No you can’t stop the flow now you gotta let it go

You gotta let it go
You can’t stop the flow now you got to let it go

Down in the valley I was looking at faces
For such a long time in all the wrong places
It came up through my body and out through my mind
I got soft atomic while I broke through time
Time
Time

Gotta let it go
You can’t stop the flow no you gotta let it go

You gotta let it go
You can’t stop the flow now you gotta let it go

You gotta let it
You gotta let it, gotta let it
Let it flow
Gotta let it go

STRANGE GROUND

Yeah
Well o-well o-well
There’s something flashing me
Is it a UFO or some kind of Christmas tree?
Is this a spinning room ’cause I’m in outer space?
I gotta get there soon ’cause something’s taking place

I’m walking strange ground
I’m hearing strange sounds
I’ve got my head in the clouds
I’m walking strange ground

It’s like a laser show and it’s happening in my head
Oh, I took a little trip but I should have stayed in bed
Ah, just relax now baby relax and let it flow
Should I laugh or cry gonna let my feelings show

I’m walking strange ground
I’m hearing strange sounds
I’ve got my head in the clouds
I’m walking strange ground

Yeah
Mmmmm

I’m walking strange ground
Yes I’m hearing strange sounds
I’ve got my head in the clouds

Strange ground

WILD

Ah let’s start livin’ it up in the world gone wild
Do you feel it, can’t conceal it
It’s getting’ tough, come on rough it up
Make it wild, wild
The valley is low, the mountain’s so high
Climb up to the top so you kiss the sky
Call it wild, wild, wild, wild

Livin’ in this aggravation I ain’t got no place it’s a nervous situation
And everybody under pressure, things just getting heavy, it’s a nervous situation
Now I’m getting raw, I’m back to the core
Strip my soul naked watch it scream for more
Call it wild, wild
We gonna bust with primitive lust
Riding up the side can you feel the thrust
Make it wild, wild, wild, wild

Ooh like mother nature, just about to eat ya, it’s a nervous situation
Breaking down defences, using all my senses, it’s a nervous situation

Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild
Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild, wild

Throw out the rules
Burn down the schools
Make it wild, wild
I can’t be tamed, I can’t be tamed
Come on, come on, come on
Fuck me wild, wild
If you think you’re cracking up
All the stakes are stacking up
Get wild
If you can’t control your rage
They will put you in a cage
Too wild

You’re outta control

I said wild, wild, wild
Wild, wild, wild
Wild, wild, wild
Wild, wild, wild
Wild
Wild
Wild

Give me wild, give me wild
Give me wild, give me wild

Get wild etc.

BLINDMANS CAVE

Oh, take it down
Oh, won’t you be my saviour
Oh, won’t you be my girl
I’m down among the dead men
Where the breeze smells like blood

And those fourteen pills I was taking for thrills
I don’t need no doctor for to cure my ills
So take me to a place where I can lay myself to waste
Where every single fibre of my soul became her slave
When I woke up this morning she was lying on my bed
Said there ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
Ain’t no secrets in a blindmans, blindmans cave

Now everything’s changed but that’s all right
Funny how everything moves with the night
You was too cool and I was so bad
Holdin’ back everything that she was saying

Now I watch you flying on these wings that I’ve outgrown
I only wanna sing about heavens that I’ve known
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans, blindmans cave

Every day I once believed and now perceived there is another level
Like a change of season there’s a reason I’m a rebel not a devil
Step back outside the line you gotta find the time to help a fallen angel
And now I understand that every time your state of mind was just not able

I can’t see you
But I can feel you
I can’t touch you
But I can reach you
You’re everything that I wanna see
Every way that I wanna be
All I got to do is believe
All I got to do is believe

Now I watch you flying on those wings that I’ve outgrown
I only wanna sing about heavens that I’ve known
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave, yeah
Ain’t no secrets, yes
Ain’t no secrets, yeah, yeah, yeah
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans cave
There ain’t no secrets in a blindmans, a blindmans cave

The caveman’s blind
The caveman’s blind
All the time, all the time, yeah the caveman’s blind
Ain’t no secrets, yeah

COMIN FOR YOU

You can run but you can’t hide
I touched you once so deep inside
Place where only we can go
Place that only we must know

I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you

That drastic step that tripped us up
All the ooh’s and aah’s just to fill your cup
I’m out of faith and into lust
If you catch me slipping then give me a slap

I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you

You tantalize me like a bondage queen
Slip it off baby then you’ve got nothing
You’ve got nothing
You’ve got nothing
You’ve got nothing

I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you

I’m comin’ to get you baby
I’m comin’ to get you baby
I’m comin’ to get you baby
I’m comin’ to get you baby

Ah huh
Ah huh
Ah huh

Ah, you look like a long wet dream
I feel like I’m on the winning team
Oh shake it down and dirty it up
When I get there you got to give it up
Got to give it up
Got to give it up
Got to give it up
Got to give it up

Can you feel it baby, I’m comin’ for you
Can you feel it baby, I’m comin’ for you
Can you feel it baby, I’m comin’ for you
Can you feel it baby, I’m comin’ for you
Comin’ for you, I’m almost there
Comin’ for you, I’m almost there
Almost there as I climb the stair
To the most safe place, without a care
Well, can you feel me baby
Can you feel me baby
I’m comin’ to get you baby
I’m comin’ to get you baby
Yeah

I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you
I’m comin’ for you

THIS IS MY HOUSE

This is my house
This is my house
I’ve been thinking ’bout my happy home
I’ve been thinking ’bout the things gone wrong
All the things we talk about, all the shit we read in books
All your dreams gone walkabout, all the freakshow, dirty looks
Oh, the mind is dangerous on its own
Yeah, the mind is dangerous left alone
Oh, the mind is dangerous on its own
Yeah, the mind is dangerous left alone

Fantasy, reality it don’t faze me

It’s time to skin the blood within
It’s amazing the only place that I can call home
Call home

This is my house
The mind is dangerous on its own
Yeah, the mind is dangerous left alone
Oh, the mind is dangerous on its own

BREATH

Remember to breathe
From the centre I leave

Yeah, remember to breathe
It’s a vital visualation
Dawn of an age, the beginnings of creation
As we take in air then we blow it by
There’s a superman in me and I can’t be denied

Journey into oneself
Reach into the sky
You feel your way through darkness
Towards the light
Towards the light

Oh, remember to breath
It’s a rhythmic stimulation
The wheels of life now are spinning
Your living masturbation
As we take in air
Then we blow it by
There’s a superman in me
And I can’t be denied

Journey into oneself
Reach into the sky
Feel your way through darkness
Towards the light
Towards the light
Towards the light

Remember to breathe
From the centre I leave
Remember to breathe
Remember to breathe
Remember to breathe
Remember to breathe, remember to breathe, remember to breathe
Remember to breathe, remember to breathe, remember to breathe
