Lyrics

Release


Do you know I can read
despair between the lines?
Words like stones makes me bleed
and they’ve been thrown a thousand times.
If you want to find a tunnel out, dig it.
Floating away from your pain.
Releasing the burden of blame.
It’s not so hard to claim ignorance,
when you’re caught in an alien place.
I’d like to dream of a life so far away
that it feels like home.
I just want to pay my fines and get out.
Floating away from your pain.
Releasing the weight of the blame.
Why do we cling to familiar things?

Tethered


Lost my desire
To douse your unquenchable fire.
It’s burning my back
And you’ve got me tied up on the rack.
The pleasure you gain while inflicting such pain
Is no secret- you smile all the while.
I’ve got a bad idea:
Why don’t we disappear.
Learn what freedom brings.
Maybe we’ll grow wings,
but under the concrete sky
is where we tend to lie.
It’s how our love can die!!
I’ve got a sad lament.
No cash to pay the rent,
And you, my crooked love
Condemn from up above.
Under the CRIMSON moon
Is where we face our doom,
Stuck in this barren tomb!!
We pay
For what
We’ve done
To love
We’re tethered
To a
Stone
And that’s what we call home!!
I got a rising fear.
There’s no escape from here.
Can’t help that hungry soul
I just can’t make her whole.
Under the winter snow…
We got no seed to sow
Asleep within this hole!!!!

Just Joking


No haunted dreams
Too young to know what suffering means
Just go
For me
Just go
For me
Fooling around
Makes her blood boil
Makes her not want
That girl
Around
That girl
Around
Just Joking (I was just joking-did not let it happen)
Wasn’t happy
And did not want to let it happen
Just Joking (Why can’t they see-one of those things just happened)
Why can’t they see
It’s one of those things
That just happened
Murderous girl
She looks so sweet as facts unfurl
No blood to wash
No blood to wash
Under a spell
He follows orders oh so well
He calls her up
It’s done for her
He calls
For her
Just Joking (I was just joking-did not let it happen)
Wasn’t happy
And did not want to let it happen
Just Joking (Why can’t they see-one of those things just happened)
Why can’t they see
It’s one of those things
That just happened

After You


Why do you
get so frustrated
when all I do
is come after you?
It must be hard
to lie awake in the dark
and wish that you could dream
of places you have been.
Why do you
need your heart sated
when all I do
is get shit from you.
Won’t let the light shine through.
It’s quite the bright full moon tonight.
There’s no doubt that’s what it’s all about.
When we lost the light on the avenue,
that’s when I knew I won’t come after you.
Why do you get so frustrated…?

Under This Mountain


Under this mountain
there’s no thinking
about the way things
really ought to be.
It happens three times a day.
What was I going to say?
Not going to stand condemned.
Let’s take what’s ours!
It’s us or them!
Can’t sleep for Monday,
can’t slip from under,
no lack of trying,
excess of gravity
It happens three times a day.
What was I supposed to say?
Not going to stand condemned.
Let’s take what’s ours!
It’s us or them!
It’s easy to turn a blind eye
When you could never see in the first place.

Exit Sign


Walls closing in. Can’t find the exit sign.
Hapless escape plans racing though my mind.
I’m tied to the stake. This tunnel has no light,
But it’s not like I’ve got stage fright.
I can’t run away.
I can’t fly away.
My prison keepers say.
I just gotta stay.
Are they real or are they fake?
Air running thin. Can’t stay awake.
You might think something’s wrong,
but I’m lost without a song.
You think I’m in a rage,
but I’m lost without a stage.
Life drains away without an exit sign.
Light years have passed since I’ve had peace of mind.
My captors here have always been so kind.
I’ve left my living sould behind.
She’s coaxing me.
Won’t set me free.
She fails to see
misanthropy
in this dark and crowded sea.
I don’t know what’s come over me.
I said hello. I meant hello. It’s time to go. This watch is slow.

And For Me The Forest


I don’t care what others say
They haven’t seen the truth.
Though I have seen most everything
they still call me a fool.
I could see the end.
They gave me the means.
History will understand.
Future will forgive.
I’m losing my mind
I can see all the signs
It will only take time.
The future is mine.
I could see the end.
They gave me the means.
History will understand.
Future will forgive.
Only a man
Not just a man
Only a man
Not just a man
Don’t look now.
Don’t look this over.
I could see the end.
They gave me the means.
History will understand.
Future will forgive.
I’m losing my mind
I can see all the signs
It will only take time.
The future is mine.
I could see the end.
They gave me the means.
History will understand.
Future will forgive.

Bedroom Music


Bedroom music
Would you be my lover?
Could you be my lover?
Would you be my lover?
I need more time
Unrecognizable
The best time for me is now!
They will later try to kill me!
They will later try to kill me!
I let her leave!
Would you be my lover?
Could you be my lover?
Bedroom music!
Would you be my lover
Could you be my lover. Ohh!
Damn I need more time.
Unrecognizable
Unrecognizable
The best time for me is now!
The best time for me is now!
They will later try to kill me!
Come closer
I don’t want to come down yet
Come closer
I don’t want to come down yet
Come closer

Never Again


Alternative ways to say goodbye.
You chose me now so no more lies.
Think it over.
I wonder if stars they speak the truth-
that I’m the one who’s supposed to be with you.
Yes, I’m certain.
Never lost.
Never last.
Never ever left alone.
Repeated Patterns definite.
Everyday affectionate
and then confusion.
It’s over now is what you say.
I’ve had enough familiar play.
I’m counting, waiting.
I was never lost
I was never last
Never ever left alone
Staring at the ceiling nightly
and I’m playing that riff again over and over and over.
Tonight I know that lightbulb needs changing.
I’m counting waiting……
Staring at the ceiling
Playing that riff again
Tonight I know that lightbulb needs changing
NEVER LETTING GO
just a ball on a string tied to that pole.
NEVER LETTING GO
just a ball on a string tied to that pole
NEVER LETTING GO
just a ball on a string tied to that pole
just a ball on a string tied to that pole

Je M'Excuse


Finally found a way we can resist
the rising impulse to lie down again
and dream away the truth.
Despite this overwhelming urge to sleep
away the heartache we plant soles upon
the right side of the bed.
Before the day is over
and night brings back the slumber,
long hours are few in number.
Recall this space without such gloom.The life’s
been taken much too soon.Who pulled the rug
and knocked us from our feet?
Je m’excuse I like those shoes. Though many
views lack meaning would you walk with me
and tell me what you love?
Before the day is over
and night brings back the slumber,
we hold to this small comfort-
long hours are few in number.
Let’s try to sleep while standing.
Such dreams are so demanding.
(Something I said once made you cry. I never bothered asking…)
