Mindless State of a Homeless Man I get this strangest feeling When I look out to the west You say I’ve got no money And no one here thinks it’s funny You said you never heard The words how they sit By the prophets they were growing We had no way of knowing Listen to the words you want to listen too To the mindless state of a homeless man He doesn't even know where he's coming from And everything you value once again How it feels when it’s plunging To the lowest left you wondering Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man I never look at anyone but you As you walk every day now passed the bank Where you pray Can you whistle to the misty tunes Of a song that you made up When you were on the way down? Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man Will you recognize me in the end? Where you walk every day on the cloud where you play Maybe one day when we meet once again You will smile as we say let’s be friends for the day Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man Don't listen to the words you say It's the mindless state of a homeless man

Just wanted you to know I know I haven't been around now lately I’ve been a million miles away yeah I know that I’ve been feeling down now lately I’ve been hiding in my cage There are lots of things I take for granted And there are things that I should say I should shout it from the highest tower But you know it’s not my way Don't think that I’ve lost interest Don't think that I don't love you It’s so difficult for me to tell you I just wanted you to know I find it hard expressing my own feelings I just wanted you to know Don’t want to wait until you’ve gone to tell you Because I know that it’s too late But you must know I find hard to tell you Trust someone else with my own fate It’s so difficult for me to tell you I just wanted you to know I find it hard expressing my own feelings I just wanted you to know It’s so difficult for me to tell you I just wanted you to know I find it hard expressing my own feelings I just wanted you to know Don't think that I’ve lost interest Don't think that I’ve lost interest I think about it all the time Don't think that I’ve lost interest Don't think that I’ve lost interest I think about it all the time It’s so difficult for me to tell you I just wanted you to know I find it hard expressing my own feelings I just wanted you to know It’s so difficult for me to tell you I just wanted you to know I find it hard expressing my own feelings I just wanted you to know

Viva La Revolution. Well inside there is a brave man And he is trying to get out Knowing that you should say something But this time you let it pass You say next time will be different As the shame it does recede And you go about your daily life Hate yourself for you have failed There’s a fire in your belly Being stoked by years of blame Now it’s time that you did something Or else you will go insane Well the door it is now open And the way is never clear A leap of faith is needed Or be crippled by your fear Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Don't waste precious self-awareness On ideas that don't make sense. Don't be burdened by your worries It’s your mind just playing games It appears to you a monster When in fact it is a mouse Don't think that you can avoid it Or escape into your house Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. As you see I’m just a normal kind of guy Who sits round here Who is getting pretty tired with the idiots and games Will you take me as a way sign I’m just pointing out the fact You have to stand up for yourself And now it’s time to act Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.

Different world When I was a little kid I used to look up at the sky Watching clouds floating by When I was a little child I used to watch the birds up high And then I’d wonder why Looking back I know it's gone Looking back I know it's gone It’s such a different world to what it was It’s such a different world to what it was When I was a little kid We used to be out all the time Playing games When I was a little kid We'd break windows run a mile That’s how it was. Looking back I know it's gone Looking back I know it's gone It’s such a different world to what it was It’s such a different world to what it was Dad would give you a clip because of the lip Mum would just sigh and start to cry And send you outside till dinner time Dad would give you a clip because of the lip Mum would just sigh and start to cry And send you outside till dinner time It’s such a different world to what it was It’s such a different world to what it was It’s such a different world to what it was It’s such a different world to what it was

Realize If you look out from the corner of your eyes Maybe you'll meet the person who will take you high If you step out of yourself for just a moment you'll catch a glimpse of the real me And there’s this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize And there’s this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize If you stop the world for just a moment and a half And imagine yourself on a different path And there's this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize And there's this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize And there's this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize And there's this song inside your head That you can’t quite realize Come on and step into my universe Come on and step into my universe Come on and step into my universe Come on and step into my universe

Dance with me one more time Don't want to let you go But when you’re free You’re so much more happy I thought it long ago When I see your face You’re better off laughing But will you dance for me one more time But will you dance for me one more time I never thought I’d see the day When I’d say you’re better off without me I never thought I’d see your face Light up so much Now it’s all over But will you dance for me one more time But will you dance for me one more time I thought we had it all But what do you know Some things just don't work out

Blew my mind Well I saw you in the moonlight Floating past, you’re on your own You pretended not to notice But I’m hypnotized and gone I convinced I’m not mistaken But I’ve made mistakes before Could you please confirm my suspicion This time I do not think that I am wrong Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind Forgive me if I thought I was the one Were you Just sent to tease me Were you just sent for sin Am I destined for rejection My mind is helpless My focus gone So the man is set to follow He thinks he’s the only one Brought to his knees by this rejection The torture goes on and on Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind Forgive me if I thought I was the one As you walk up to meet him A kiss and the magic it has gone I am back in this asylum Destined to wander on and on As you walk up to meet him A kiss and the magic it has gone I am back in this asylum Destined to wander on and on Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind now sister Well you blew my mind Forgive me if I thought I was the one

NOTHING HAPPENED She was just a young girl When she came out for a ride to this old city She was looking for a bed to lay her head There’s one place left in town She walked right in to the Angels Bar And played some pool With one armed shark called Larkin Who let her win his money Because deep down he had a heart of gold Absolutely nothing happened at all She wasn't raped or gang banged By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs Absolutely nothing happened at all. She was never in any kind of trouble at all. She packed her bags in the morning Tiptoed out of the room and she was gone She jumped on to a greyhound bus And headed south west under a deep blue sky A weird looking guy sat next to her And asked her where she was going And she said kind of far He said take care there lady Because you know things can go bad on the road Absolutely nothing happened at all. She wasn't raped or gang banged By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs Absolutely nothing happened at all. She was never in any kind of trouble at all. Nothing happened at all Nothing happened at all She grew up and had some kids And had a happy husband Who didn't beat her he was nice to her And she grew into an old lady and said things like I would like to see the grand children And just before she died when she was 85 on her death bed Absolutely nothing happened at all. She wasn't raped or gang banged By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs Absolutely nothing happened at all. She was never in any kind of trouble at all.

Train moves on Two witches are siting and bitching about guys A man whose face lined he once was a junkie A shimmer of rays through dark northern skies Enter the tunnel as a baby it cries And the train moves on and the train moves on And the train moves on and the train moves on A woman she sits with sunglasses eyes The bully returns stinking of nicotine He looks at me menacingly, turns to her and smiles And whispers he's sorry as she smiles at their child And the train moves on and the train moves on And the train moves on and the train moves on I knew from the minute that I saw his face That he was the last person I wanted to sit with me He opened his mouth and words upon breath Destined to sting me and bore me to death And the train moves on and the train moves on And the train moves on and the train moves on The angelic waitress she floats down the aisle Her perfume it lingers as she pours out the coffee She winks at me as she wipes off the stain As we slice through the rain tempest into bright light again The angelic waitress she floats down the aisle Her perfume it lingers as she pours out the coffee She winks at me as she wipes off the stain As we slice through the rain tempest into bright light again And the train moves on and the train moves on And the train moves on and the train moves on  

about

Adrian T Bell, lead singer with the critically acclaimed, award winning Czech rock band The Prostitutes will release his debut solo album DIFFERENT WORLD in February 2014.

Newcastle upon Tyne is the birth place of this extraordinary vocalist who has featured on no less than three dynamic albums. The first two are Get Me Out Of Here and Hometown Zombies which topped the Czech Republic charts were followed by Deaf To The Call which was produced by Youth.

For Different World, Adrian teamed up with the rising star of the UK music scene, producer Michael Rendall, whose previous work includes Killing Joke, Paul McCartney, Gyuto Monks of Tibet, Rodger Waters of Pink Floyd and Echo and the Bunnymen. The album is a generously arranged collection of songs whose themes include maturing, loving, falling and rising, experiencing private revolutions and leaving a trace behind.
The album’s title refers to the times when a man would express a strong opinion about a subject he knew nothing about as a point of honour, when your dad would give you clip and mum would send you outside until dinner time. And, when songwriting was admittedly done with a full heart rather than as a marketing business model.
