Lyrics of Cleopatra

Cleopatra was a queen like me, Just like me, Yeah just like me, Straight or gay or in between, In between, Yeah in between, Betrayed by, A lover, So hard to, Recover, Couldn't see the forest for the trees, Just like me, Oh, in too deep There was no intervention, I was lost, falling out with myself, I was so filled with tension, Getting mad was my cry for help, Now I'm back with a vengeance, I've found my inner voice again, And it speaks to my soul loud and clear, And it sounds like this, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Like Cleopatra, La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra Cleopatra had Mark Antony, You know who I mean, Not the Latin king, The one from Rome who lived long ago, After Caesar died, Cleo's gigolo, Part Goddess, Part temptress, The way he left her, It was shameless, She was her own worst enemy, Just like me, Yeah just like me but, Now I'm back with a vengeance, I've found my inner voice again, And it speaks to my soul loud and clear, And it sounds like this, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Like Cleopatra, La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra I can feel, Her spirit run through me, I can see it in my mind like a movie, Egyptian and Latin, the voices run through me, Come to me, La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra La la la la La la la la La la la la la Like Cleopatra
