Walk My Way 03:08
In the club, drinking my cares away At the bar, and then I saw a flash across the room Your sequin dress, moving into the light I was daydreaming you hypnotized me Are you gonna walk my way? Smiling at me, shakin’ ya body Are you gonna make my day? The way you move drivin’ me crazy. Are ya gonna groove all night? You’re working that beat, it makes me feel all right Darling please, walk my way. Electric eyes, staring across the room They seem to say that you want to dance with me Now you’re here, my troubles melt away Put down my glass as I watch you grooving Through the haze, I walk across the floor Hungry eyes as you move in closer I’m motionless, you lay your hands on me Face to face, we need no words now Are you gonna walk my way? Smiling at me, shakin’ ya body Are you gonna make my day? The way you move drivin’ me crazy. Are ya gonna groove all night? See ya working that beat, it makes me feel all right Baby please, walk my way. The mood it changed, As I looked into those eyes Transfixed I hesitate; you kiss me in the light. Drift away in the moment, you give me all I need And my heart it is racing, as you dance with me Are you gonna walk my way? Smiling at me, shakin’ ya body Are you gonna make my day? The way you move drivin’ me crazy. Are we gonna groove all night? Working this beat, it makes me feel all right Darling please, walk my way. (repeat) You really knock me out, when you walk my way Shake your body down, you really make my day Dancing all night long, can I take you home tonight? Darling please, walk my way

You've got me on the ropes The way my skin crawls I can’t cope And in time, I’ll get my peace of mind You’re irresistible Is your smile hot or cold? Are you trouble? Insatiable your will is uncontrolled I can’t see, you’re blinding me You’re my strange addiction now Like a drug you’re in my veins Is this real? Or is it just fantasy? You and me? Your looks intoxicating me Head is spinning, I can’t breathe I’m on fire I can’t trust myself, I’m caught in your wire You’re bleeding me One more kiss is all I need I’m addicted to you But you know don’t you girl, I can’t quit you I can’t see, you’re blinding me You’re my strange addiction now Like a drug you’re in my veins Is this real? Or is it just fantasy? You and me? I promised myself I’d leave you in the morning The voice of reason on my shoulder But with a look I just rollover You’re killing me A look of evil in those eyes You’ve shown your teeth You’re what the devil has supplied I can’t see, you’re blinding me You’re my strange addiction now Like a drug you’re in my veins Is this real? Or is it just fantasy? You and me?

Golden hour Glow like an angel With foreboding power I could have sworn I’ve been here before Leave me a light on Leave me a light or A naked flame will do Just don’t Let all the darkness come in at once I wouldn’t let your Darkness come in at once I’m no stranger to shadows Oh I hear their song Singing Let the darkness come in at once Oh I’ve seen Darkness coming Dip me in ink Maybe I’m what they want? Golden hour Glows like an angel Hypnotise me Tread carefully she’s So unstable Leave me a light on Leave me a light or A naked flame will do Just don’t Let all the darkness come in at once I wouldn’t let your Darkness come in at once I’m no stranger to shadows Oh I hear their song Singing Singing Singing Oh oh oh The day is closing Sky’s on fire and With embers in your eyes You should feel alive Instead of staring down a future where the flame would die It's Golden hour Glows like an angel Bring your night on Let it be a cradle Rock me carefully to sleep Let all the darkness come in at once I wouldn’t let your Darkness come in at once I’m no stranger to shadows Oh I hear their song Singing Let the darkness come in at once Oh I’ve seen Darkness coming Dip me in ink Maybe I’m what they want? Golden hour Glows like an angel

The Maze 04:35
Close my eyes Fears play back to me I fall down to my knees Muscles tensing Heart is racing And I’m choking on your lies The noise is oh so loud I’d shout but I’m too proud I’m just yearning to escape Who let them in? The demons made of stone I’d fight but I’m alone Aware of something I can’t see Haunting me Mirrors at every turn My reflection makes me yearn For a time where I felt safe In this maze I can’t escape Fists balled up tight I’m running through the night It’s chasing me No end in sight I can hear but I can’t see What’s there to ambush me Open your eyes now, come back to the light It’ll be all right It’s clear They will disappear Who let them in? The demons made of stone I’d fight but I’m alone Aware of something I can’t see Haunting me Mirrors at every turn My reflection makes me yearn For a time where I felt safe In this maze I can’t escape Whisper to me Fan the flames I complicate and overthink Try to escape this ball and chain Your lies weighing on me Who let them in? The demons made of stone I’d fight but I’m alone Aware of something I can’t see Haunting me Mirrors at every turn My reflection makes me yearn For a time where I felt safe In this maze I can’t escape Whisper to me Fan the flames I complicate and overthink Try to escape this ball and chain Your lies weighing on me

about

The debut EP from Strike Eagle, ‘INVERTED’ is the story of a whirlwind relationship beginning on an intoxicating high before reality is flipped upside down and things spiral downwards into destruction.
