"Under Influence" as written by Al L. Green, Mabon Hodges, Francard Hubert Andre Joe Blanc, Philippe Olivier Cerboneschi and Leroy Burgess....
Somethin' that makes me
Think about it all the time
Always just behind there haunting messin’up my mind
Something that takes me
To the place I lose control
Where there is no one to hold me
Or own my soul
I can get crazy
Travelin’ round too fast to see
Hiding just beyond perception that would be me
It’s how it makes me
Shakes and tingles thru my spine
Playin’ my life by rolling dice
Tears to my eyes

Perception (shining on me)
Affection (holding on to me)
Obsession (I just can’t break free)
Perception (shining on me)
Possession (holding on to me)
Infatuation (I just can’t break free)

It’s not the first time
Workin’ my way against the grain
Everyday dreaming an everlasting stream
It’s not the last time
We all need a second chance
Playin’ life with bishops and knights
On goes the line
Why are they trippin’
I’m just an average man
One alone… sometimes right sometimes doin’ wrong
Wherever the four winds
May blow me… I will go
Only under influence

Perception (shining on me)
Affection (holding on to me)
Obsession (I just can’t break free)
Perception (shining on me)
Possession (holding on to me)
Infatuation (I just can’t break free)
