This is an early version of the TYRANT, and a new version with legendary drummer Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Lana Del Rey), and some improved production quality will be on my forthcoming record LiliLand, on MRI/RED through Sony Music Group.


Tyrant in the north
Tyrant in the East
Tyrant in the sky
Tyrant inside me

Tyrant will take you down
Tyrant slings her blade
Nothing's good enough
Till the whole kingdom's razed

Revolution of the heart ensues
On your knees you will receive the truth

A tyrant gave me life
A tyrant gave him his
Yesterday i hurt you with my iron fist

I'll go march the streets
Protest greed and hate
Come home with my own nuclear weapons race

Revolution of the heart ensues
On your knees you will receive the truth
(is she gonna make a change, make a change?)
Anything is possible when you
Haven't got anything left to lose

Can we heal the world?
What hope for mid-east peace
If I don't disarm the tyrant inside me?
Kaddafi inside me
