  • It was just 3 nights ago
    That I did you wrong
    Said something I shouldn't have
    Acted far too strong

    You told me off
    and sent me away
    And now you're running back to me

    Boomerang
    I drove you away, yet now you return
    Boomerang
    I've so much I've yet to learn

    Boomerang
    I hurt you so, yet you still love me
    Boomerang
    You are my gift, sent from above me

    I just cannot understand
    Why you give me this chance
    You should just throw me away
    Not let me have this dance

    I was a fool
    And I broke your heart
    And yet you're calling me back home

    Boomerang
    I drove you away, yet now you return
    Boomerang
    I've so much I've yet to learn

    Boomerang
    I hurt you so, yet you still love me
    Boomerang
    You are my gift, sent from above me

    I promise never to be
    Someone that you hate
    I'll never make you angry
    Never vulnerate

    I just want you
    To love and to hold
    I went away but I've returned

    Boomerang
    I drove you away, yet now you return
    Boomerang
    I've so much I've yet to learn

    Boomerang
    I hurt you so, yet you still love me
    Boomerang
    You are my gift, sent from above me
  • I know the world can be really rough
    You like to pretend you’re really tough
    But you’re too kind
    And rarely fine
    I know it’s easy to get depressed
    To feel you’re different from all the rest
    That’s why I’m here
    To erase your fear

    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland
    When you’re feeling a little more than lost
    I will be your Red Cross
    I’ll be neutral when you don’t get your way
    Your Swiss Miss on the colder days
    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland

    The times you’re feeling a little low
    Baby, we can take things extra slow
    Just take your time
    You’re doing fine
    And when the dark is closing all around
    I’ll make sure you’re always being found
    I’ll be the light
    When life’s unkind

    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland
    When you’re filled with fear and doubt
    I’ll lift you higher than the Alps
    When your foes won’t let you by them
    I will grant you your asylum
    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland

    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland
    When you’re feeling a little more than lost
    I will be your Red Cross
    I’ll be neutral when you don’t get your way
    Your Swiss Miss on the colder days
    Baby, when it’s hard just take my hand
    I will be your Switzerland
  • Tired to see my soul put to the test
    I’m taking it to the streets
    No store left to close, you call it unrest
    Cause you can’t survive without cheats

    You put me in shackles
    And you said I’ll be fine
    Don’t claim to be thoughtful
    If you’re taking what’s mine

    My love in on strike right under your window
    I’m not letting anything go

    Steal my tears
    Play with my fears
    You made them worthless anyway
    Now watch my humanity in dismay

    Steal my tears (x ???)
    Will I get home before the sky turns red ?
    Will my hopes give up if I look ahead ?

    I came across your faceless mobs
    Behind their menacing shields
    Speaking a French only fit for your job
    Weapons and hatred concealed
    As I marched peacefully
    They charged at me
    And stole my tears
    Stole my tears

    (Future)

    When it’s over I will get my tears back
    For now Paris feels under attack
    Don’t want to live to the beat of this dread
    J’ai besoin d’aide

    Steal my tears
    Play with my fears
  • The land barren and all but gone
    The people abandoned and left forlorn
    A hopeless sight to be behold
    We are left broken, we are cold

    If no one else can help us,
    then we must
    take it into
    our own hands



    Under the moon the swords are shining
    tonight, blood will spill
    Under the stars, we are fighting
    Tonight, we will...


    And the first blade is swung
    Our enemies took us for fools
    But we carry on...

    and we might have looked weak,
    but we will not lay down and die
    For this is all we have
    So hear our battle cry



    This is our final stand
    We will not heed your command
    Our resolve is glorious
    We will be victorious

    Our swords will fight back
    Our shields will defend us
    Our hearts will empower us
    Our souls will be free



    The last moments will decide all
    We will stand, we will not fall
    For we made a promise to not waver
    The tides can still turn in our favour

    If our last breath isn't breathed
    Then our sword will not be sheathed
    And with our voice that is still strong
    listen to our battle song!



    This is our final stand
    We will not heed your command
    Our resolve is glorious
    We will be victorious

    Our swords will fight back
    Our shields will defend us
    Our hearts will empower us
    Our souls will be free
  • Sick
    affected with disease or ill health
    Sick!
    outstandingly or amazingly good or impressive
    Prepare yourselves for this story of disease, heartbreak and shattered hope
    The story of ignorant fools who just wanted to make it in time for GoB-O-Vision


    They had so many ideas, they were great
    All the pieces fit, things were going good
    Maybe it was something that they ate
    Now it was time to throw up all that food


    It was a magician's trick
    It was the chef's kiss
    Their song was meant to be sick
    But not sick like this

    This isn't the track they were making
    This is just our eulogy for it
    Can you feel their hearts breaking?
    If only we could listen to it


    As they picked themselves off the ground, They knew there is no time to dawdle
    They must be GoB-O-Vision bound, not going would be immoral
    It's time to clean yourselves up, to make something of your damnation
    Get yourselves out of this dump, can a song come into creation?


    They could not all make it through
    Their song has been left behind
    How will they make it, just two?
    An angel, I was assigned


    It was a magician's trick
    It was the chef's kiss
    Their song was meant to be sick
    But not sick like this

    This isn't the track we were making
    This is just their eulogy for it
    Can you feel their hearts breaking?
    If only we could listen to it


    The prophecy tells of the day
    The third will rise from the ashes
    Yes, she will rise like the phoenix
    She will rise and bring the track back to life
    But until the day comes
    Dance with us to this song


    This isn't the track we were making
    This is just our prequel for it
    Can you feel our heartbeat speeding?
    Wait until you can listen to it
  • Doesn't matter where you're coming from
    We are anywhere and anyone
    Wherever the music meets the beat
    We're the ones who'll make you move your feet

    A nation without walls

    Round here the music makes you

    Just let the music take you

    Don't care about where you called home before

  • Fiona works in a call center
    All day dealing with complaints
    At night she opens up her sewing box
    To forget all her constraints
    Sauchiehall Street is her catwalk
    For all the creations that she makes
    In her mind she sees red carpets
    With her designs at center stage

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives
    Big dreams

    James he is a postie
    Out in the morning rain and sleet
    He comes home every evening
    With new blisters on his feet
    But all he wants to do was paint
    Swap to soft sand from hard concrete
    Landscapes, still life's and portraits
    Of all the people that he meets

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives
    Big dreams

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives
    Big dreams
  • I was older than you
    And I loved your music
    And your poetry; I know you
    once got an A in English

    And so I loved you
    pretty little thing
    and I loved the way
    you looked at me

    And I don't know how it all ends
    But maybe it's all for the best

    Single-minded, steady focus
    Captured by your studies
    I probed the depths to discover
    What you felt about me

    I tried to keep a distance
    Held myself back
    Just in case I was wrong about
    What you felt in fact

    And I don't know how it all ends
    But maybe it's all for the best

    And I don't know why it all ended
    But maybe it's all for the best
    But maybe it doesn't have to be maybe
    Let me know; send a text
  • Wrote a song about how life went wrong,
    It’s got some drive and some feeling
    But I know the jury and the voters hate the politics

    I’m making a scene, the audience screams
    The girls in the front giving fuck-me cries
    I wanna shove these flags into my eyes 
    Selling out for glory


    I wanna be like Rage or Serj Tankian,
    I’m doing camp instead
    Shiny lights, the same old ballad to my girl,
    Meaningless and done to death


    Mindless jingles
    Dead inside
    Mindless music
    Yeeeaahhhh!


    Forget the talent, need that war porn high
    I want my Daddy Zelenskyy
    No matter the song, I want to be on the right,
    Stefania and I, going all night 


    I wanna be like Rage or Serj Tankian,
    I’m doing camp instead
    Shiny lights, the same old ballad to my girl,
    Meaningless and done to death (chorus x2)


    A minute to win it,
    Dead inside
    Mindless jingles
    Disgust inside
    Eurovision
    Wave that flag
    National fervour
    Virtue signal 
    Pointless divide
    Put it aside
  • Goldenrod

    With GarfieldShapedHotTub on Organ

    Verse 1
    She lit up like a ferris wheel
    dressed up, rusting steel
    I wonder what she ever feels
    and in that moment I'm aware
    like a busted rocking chair
    that she's not going anywhere

    Chorus
    She's goldenrod
    in an empty field
    so vibrant and

    so habitual
    as the wind blows through
    her dirty hair
    all the dust and sand
    move at a rhythm

    Bridge
    Can't stop the rhythm
    She'll touch down like a funnel cloud
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Hit the ground
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Big dreams in a laid off town
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Hit the ground

    Repeat Chorus

    Verse 2
    Her family is consumed by recliners
    Heart attacks served at the diner
    where she speaks of being a designer
    but she's folding sheets at the local motel
    Daydreaming of her farewell
    When is she moving pray tell?

    Repeat Chorus
  • Pacific island
    ancient and submerged
    The start of man
    from other lands emerged
    Tamil's ancestral home
    culture loss bemoaned
    From East to West
    here man left the nest
    a sunken continent
    Its loss our great lament
    Lost where we came from,
    We lost where we came from!
    To keep the dream alive
    Must move and survive
    Pray from the other side
    Memories will never die

    Lemuria,
    Still we cry for thee
    Lemuria,
    Expunged from history
    The size of Africa
    It sunk into the sea
    Now it has become
    A myth , a mystery

    Kumari Kandam
    The undersea city's sands
    Some call it untrue
    Many cultures called it Mu

    Lemuria,
    Its history untaught
    Lemuria,
    The land that time forgot

    Sri Lanka, Tanzania,
    moved onto other shores
    New continents and areas,
    Evolution head towards

    Pacific's center
    Our legend evermore
    Fight to remember,
    Just what we're living for,

    Easter Island, Fiji
    Tops of the mountain range
    Hawaii, Tahiti
    All that's left to show the change
    Someday we'll know the truth
    too late to find the proof?
    We lost where we came from
    We lost where we came from

    Lemuria,
    the source of all is lost
    Lemuria,
    land bridges we have crossed
    Our sunken continent
    The cradle of mankind,
    Its loss our great lament
    Dissolved and recombined
    The undersea city's sands
    Our Kumari Kandam
    the place of dawn of man
    submerged and ancient land

    Lemuria,
    Its history untaught
    Lemuria,
    the place that time forgot
    the place that time forgot
  • Crumbs of the day
    All swept away
    They never gathered
    To break the bread

    Their stare
    Bitter like
    The wine and
    All of their prayers

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Go fetch the milk
    Prepare the herbs
    The knife is right in
    Up to the hilt

    Their scowl
    Twisted like
    Their hopes and
    All of their mouths

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Per uno che muore per cause naturali
    Novantanove muoiono di malocchio

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Towers fall...
  • Here we are, in your apartment, and I know it’s time to say
    All those words that I’ve been dreading to all month, all week, all day
    Whether you may see it coming or you do not have a clue
    I’ll insist that it is me, I hope you know it isn’t you

    I can’t do it any, I can’t do it anymore
    It doesn’t feel like you are mine, it doesn’t feel like I am yours
    And I love you darling, oh I love you to the core
    But we don’t work so I can’t do it, I can’t do it anymore

    If I don’t leave we won’t succeed, I know you know it too
    If I don’t leave, then we’ll both bleed even though I love you
    But damn it hurts so much to know what I will put you through
    This is the worst thing, the worst thing that I've had to do

    That I have had to do, to you, to you, to you
    That I have had to do, to you, to you, to you

    Now that the ball is dropped, the hurt is showing on your face
    Desperation’s sinking in, so you get up and start to pace
    I try to take your hand, to make amends, but then you pull it free
    As you turn around and say, “how could you do this thing to me”?

    I am sorry darling, more than you will ever know,
    But we are flawed and we just hurt each other so it’s time go
    You start crying now, and I feel awful to my soul
    I am sorry darling, more than you will ever know
  • Verse 1
    Woke up with nothing around me
    Just an empty room
    So much space for so many things
    Only contains gloom

    No more companions in this place
    Company is long gone
    No reason to keep on staying
    I have to move on

    Chorus
    A long time ago I meant something to someone here
    As I go I look back on all of those years
    No lessons to learn no bridges to burn
    No pulses left to hear
    The life I knew is in the past it's no longer near

    Verse 2
    My bags are packed but the weight
    Is all left behind
    Crack the door take one last peek
    Keep the picture in my mind

    Finally I'm moving on and
    Going far away
    Starting over is a trial
    But I have to find a way
  • inviting me into the house with open arms
    offer tea with some cake for heavy hearts
    all sweet smiles, you offer comfort and protection
    but then you turn your mouth in my direction

    tearing down my walls and forcing this on me
    out to get me, this I couldn’t have foreseen
    it’s just your opinion, you don’t care about my plea
    pinching at my brain, you call this family?

    Telling me
    you want me differently
    telling me
    it’s not ok to be

    Hey
    this is me
    there's no receipt
    you take me as I am and as I feel
    or get the hell away from me

    you spit your poison over, looking so carefree
    I’m the one that needs to deal with the debris
    you need this edge to feel superiority
    I don’t exist for you, refusing your decree

    tearing down my walls and forcing this on me
    stepping on my toes then barking up this tree
    pinching at my brain, you call this family?
    All I wanted was to just, be, free

    Telling me
    you want me differently
    telling me
    it’s not ok to be

    Hey
    this is me and
    (there’s) no warranty
    you take me as I am and as I feel
    or get the hell away from me
  • It is time to pay homage
    To the most majestic of creatures
    The mightiest beast
    That ever did roam our salient Earth
    From the tip of its tail
    To the chill of its wet, button nose
    The cat is just perfect
    Right down to its jellybean toes

    So fluffy and soft with sandpaper tongues and little booplesnoots
    With their sonorous purrs and yawns they’re just so god damned cute
    I love them all, I don’t discern, Maine coons, Siamese, tortoise shell
    And even cats who yell

    With their tiny toe beans and fur so sleek, it’s they who’ll inherit the earth, not the meek

    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Come on out
    Lets play
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Don’t you hide
    Lets slay

    I have a Sphynx named Penny and I do treasure her so
    You can trace all who worshipped her back to the Pharaoh
    Hell beast with deathtrap belly
    A blink from her will turn you into jelly

    With their tiny toe beans and fur so sleek, it’s they who’ll inherit the earth, not the meek

    You can see the golden ratio of the universe when they curl into themselves and tuck their nose behind their paw—a furry croissant you can’t help but want to disturb. They are fluffy little hell beasts with motorboat purrs that never fail to soothe the soul. And no matter how much you feed them, they never seem to believe their bowls are full enough or that they’ve ever had enough treats. Spoil them. They are the masters of our universe.

    They will ignore their bed to curl up in spare boxes
    They will ignore their bed to curl up in spare boxes

    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Come on out
    Lets play
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Don’t you hide
    Let us slay
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty

    Come on out
    Let us play
  • Never made it to the bottom or the top
    Never waged war with my words or with my chops
    I’m nothing but fair

    I can’t figure out if a trend is made to last
    Can’t tell the scholars from the idiots thinking fast
    I’d rather stand there

    And I’ll catch up later

    It’s a long road to the top
    Where the shortcuts are plenty
    I’ve played it safe all the way
    And you’re still so close to me
    I’m that point in the distance
    My complacence makes you smile
    But the time it will pay off
    You’ll be out for a long while

    There were once a racer who watched chaos unfold
    Fall after fall, he strolled his way to gold
    In Salt-Lake City

    You have your legends, so why can’t this one be mine ?
    Whatever it takes, I will cross the finish line
    And trust destiny

    waaeeeeeeeee dooo daaaaaa dee daaaa
    waaaeee dooo duhhh da duhhh
    doo doo doo duh duh dada
    doo deee doo doo duh la la
    doo dee doo dee doo da de dee deeleedoo
    dum dee da dee de dah!

    You know what it takes to fight for the lead
    But details, they get trimmed
    The story would be grim
    Cause there’s one thing you don’t want to misread :
    A win that feels alright
    Me looking at the lights

    I'll end where I want if I can just keep the pace
    Cause if I were fast I'll run all over the place
    Wouldn't see a door

    Why should it be normal to be supposed to stack
    Decades of yearning In the middle of the pack
    And settle for more ?

  • You sneak me in your basement,
    Oh yes, I’m comin’ through,
    Tonight you swiped right,
    And now I’m here with you,

    We smoke some by your window,
    So we can feel the beat,
    Of your Isley Brothers vinyl,
    Who’s that lady between the sheets.

    Let’s take it slow,
    I want to make this moment last,
    Let’s take it slow,
    Nights like these fade so fast,

    Now here we go,
    You’ve got that look in your eye,
    It’s like known you forever,
    And now it’s now or never.

    One night together,
    Isn’t enough for me,
    One sight of you was,
    Enough for me to see,

    One night isn’t enough,
    To make a fire from a spark,
    And when this is over,
    You’ll leave me alone in the dark,

    One year of silence,
    Then I shoot you a text,
    You moved to Miami,
    But your heart's in Key West,

    You ask me to visit,
    Send me pics of South Beach,
    Marooned in Florida,
    America, land of the free.

    Let’s take it slow,
    This not what either of us planned,
    Let’s take it slow,
    To make something out of a one night stand,

    Now here we go,
    I got my ticket, I’m on my way
    It’s like known you forever,
    And now it’s now or never.

    One night together,
    Wasn’t enough for me,
    One sight of you was,
    Enough for me to see,

    One night wasn’t enough,
    To make a fire from a spark,
    But this isn’t over,
    We'll light a fire in dark.

    This night together,
    Yeah, it's enough for me,
    This sight of you is,
    Enough for me to see,

    This night's enough,
    To build a fire from a spark,
    This isn't over,
    We lit a fire in the dark.
  • Welcome to the circus of Montellima
    A menagerie of creatures from afar
    We've got clowns garbed in gold and such comfortable seats
    And a thousand foot high golden silk rope trapeze
    So come feast your eyes for the world's greatest show
    That is if you can afford tickets to go
    Now allow me to introduce, our majestic Queen
    But if you want to enter you must pay her fee

    We all dance to her beautiful voice
    Close your eyes and breathe in the noise
    We all sway to the wonderful sounds
    Raise a glass to The Queen of the Clowns

    Welcome to the dark side of Montellima
    Away from the circus of the rich and the Stars
    The clowns and the strong men and all who perform
    Enjoy the Queen's wealth but they don't share with all
    Yet even when crippled by her taxes and tithe
    The Queen of Clowns has fans from all walks of life
    People in squalor, will raise a glass high
    And toast to her health and her wealth and her smile

    We all dance to her beautiful voice
    Close your eyes and breathe in the noise
    We all sway to the wonderful sounds
    Raise a glass to The Queen of the Clowns

    We all dance to her beautiful voice
    Close your eyes and breathe in the noise
    We all sway to the wonderful sounds
    Raise a glass to The Queen of the Clowns

  • Driving on late at night
    Making a wake in time
    Wanna be back there, back to the place where
    Welcome is a worn old thing

    Burning abets inside
    Flicker behind my eye
    Checking the rear view, no more tear dew
    Streaking down a one-way street

    Color gone black and white
    Nothing but wrong made right
    Itching to fess up, clean up our mess but
    Thinking all the words is trying

    Riding on highway wide
    Not another soul in sight
    Lose all the history, turn up Kavinsky
    This is my time to fly

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear me now
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl

    Driving at the speed of light
    Saving a wasted life
    It thrums along as long as you
    Ignore all the grain and what you really want to say
    So let's no longer live that way
    Come the day we'll talk It over

    No more dark side
    Aside from the darkling sky
    I like keeping in those lines
    Define the road that leads me home

    Getting on mile by mile
    Making a break in style
    Missing you shotgun, rocking to outrun
    This is our call to wild

    Coming on home to roost
    Punching the turbo boost
    Crossing the borders, I am the warrior
    Taking it fast and loose

    Coming on home to you
    Thinking up things we'll do
    Pushing the engine, oh I'll attend it when
    We've got guts to move

    Tell me can you hear me now (x4)

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear me now
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear the howl
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl
  • We left the hills for the plains not a moment too soon.
    We were gone through all of April, May, and most of June.
    Every new friend that we made was a life that we saved.
    We were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.

    Amanda Lynn She's got a head like a helium balloon.
    She's always ready to go but (you know) she's always out of tune.
    In Kansas we stopped at a shop to buy Amanda some strings.
    There was a time when a dime could buy you lots of things.

    How do you know that you can't fly,
    If you have never even tried.
    How do you know?
    How do you know?

    Scolded On the road, we were told we need to go slow.
    Baked and basking in the dashboard's amber midnight glow.
    imagining a parkour guy running along our side.
    The highway signs and strange replies were our only guide.

    We don't blink, we don't sleep, we don't look before we leap.
    Our promises and secrets are all that we could keep.
    No looking back now, only up as we leave the ground.
    The wave crashed as the high tide line went down.

    How do you know that you can't fly,
    If you have never even tried.
    How do you know?
    How do you know?
  • Well you walked out on me, baby, for a girl that you just met
    In the outer regions of the Kuiper Belt
    And you broke my heart in pieces smaller than the asteroids
    That make Saturn's rings, babe how'd you think I felt

    And I'm burnin' up inside, just like a strangelet in my soul
    Turning me into something unlike before
    Like the great red spot of Jupiter I'm swirling 'round and round
    Losing myself in a heartbreak like a storm

    My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start

    Should I find myself a wormhole, leave this galaxy behind
    Cos you're clearly not the man who's right for me
    Cos you ate me up and spat me out, just like a great black hole
    Eatin' up a quasi-star and shootin' out a gamma beam

    What did I ever see in you, you were nothing but a void
    Not a galaxy inside your empty eyes
    Your gravity grew weaker as you let go of my arms
    I just don't know how I could have been that unwise

    My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start

    For a moment there I thought I found the one
    Thought I'd found the man who'd warm me like the sun
    But what did I know now, I'm just a photon now
    And you just shot me out

    Babe, I'm sorry that I did you wrong, I'm nothin' but a fool
    To have let you go was my biggest mistake
    Like a dying star I burnt you up and left you dead and cold
    No one else could ever hope to take your place

    Babe, the love I've always felt could power 20 Dyson spheres
    For an eon, babe, perhaps it could be 10
    I would throw us into a black hole, and then we become one
    And we'd never have to be apart again

    Keep it together, I'm supernova now
    Collide with me and forever I vow
    I'll be smart; sweetheart, I won't tear us apart
    The future looks bright. Let's get a running start
    (My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start)

    (Together)
    Collapse into me, we're supernova now
    Outshine the milky way; and somehow
    We're made of energy. We're a neewwwww star
    I think we made a pulsar
  • From round 198: 'Nightmares'


    "Thanks for coming to my party, drive safe!"

    Here I sit, every minute
    Crawling slower than the last
    Each breath gets colder, I can feel it
    Making blurry shadows on the glass

    The walkers came to soothe me
    But spoke in harsh twisted tongues
    Sending down my sanity
    Their soothing only stung

    Shards of glass stained the road
    Spilling out from the crash
    Every step time slowed
    And burned away to ash

    "We pray to the our God this day
    For the blessings you provide
    But from ashes to ashes
    And from dust to dust
    So it must be
    But keep this king of kings
    Beneath thy almighty wings"

    Lay down, I can hear you
    Stay now, I'll stay near you
    We're all here now
    You've been brave and so strong

    Go on, we all love you,
    So strong, I'm so proud of you
    It's time to go now
    It won't be too long

    Now I crawl
    Each new day kills the last
    Here I'll stay
    Round and glossy stones
    Lined up neat in rows
    One I'll call my own
    Once it's time to go

    Where are you my only one
    I'm cold and I'm alone
    What else could I have done
    I can't go on
    on my own

    And soon you'll join the great parade
    But I really need you here
    I wish it was different
    I wish you'd stayed
    But death has called, my dear

    A special thank you to;
    Salomé, Chex, PartyeeFee, Cookiegolem
    for their generous contributions to this song
  • As the waking hours fade away
    wrap myself in sleeps embrace
    Thinking of you

    Where I could dream anything
    but live in my memories
    Just me and you

    I'm always dreaming
    Thinking of you

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true

    Everything was better then,
    I wake up and that world ends
    I'm alone in this room

    Another day to waste away
    Just to make it back to my escape
    Back to you

    I'm always dreaming
    Thinking of you

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true

    Don't let this end
    Don't you ever
    break my heart again

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true
  • It's Halloween (3rd bail)
    --------------

    It's Halloween so don't get spooked
    Raving partiers in a group
    Drunken revelry, costumes funny
    I have no pockets, and thus no money

    Rolling out through the night
    Glowsticks reflecting, shining bright
    On my hip a whiskey flask
    Smiles exist behind the masks

    Partying under a crescent moon
    Hearing laughter and haunting tunes
    Witches, Goblins, Vampire Capes
    Having fun in the night’s landscape

    CHORUS
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
    Raving times and the party rocks
    Pulling pranks block by block
    The greatest night that’s ever been
    It’s how we do our Halloween
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed

    BRIDGE
    Autumn leaves, and sheeted ghosts
    This night’s the one we love the most
    House to house we plan our route (pronounced root)
    Kids happy with their candy loot

    BRIDGE 2
    Creatures crawling door to door
    Bag is full but they still want more
    Insane Costumes, crazy hair
    So it's dark, but don't be scared
    Robots, heroes, Queens and Kings
    Who knows what this night will bring?


    Flaming pumpkins, flying bats
    Crossing paths with a black cat

    Angel's halos, devil's horns
    Damn they gave me candy corns
    Sounds of parties in the void
    This guy's dressed as a hemorrhoid,

    Our group is not very discreet
    We're too old to trick or treat
    But what the hell we're having fun
    Happy Halloween to everyone


    CHORUS
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
    Raving times and the party rocks
    Pulling pranks block by block
    The greatest night that’s ever been
    It’s how we do our Halloween
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
  • New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
    Music, works hard
    Finishes in less than a day

    Then the lyrics replies,
    Say they'll be ready in not too long
    If only, the group knew,
    It would all go wrong

    They sit down, with a pen in hand
    But the words won't flow,
    No the words won't flow,
    Says they'll be ready in a couple hours
    But the time just goes,
    But the time just goes


    He'll keep on waiting
    He'll keep on waiting
    As the night dies down
    He'll keep them waiting
    He'll keep them waiting
    Cause he knows
    There's always tomorrow

    A few days, pass by
    Nothing has been done
    Incoming, deadline
    And the lyrics goes to run

    But then the angel comes in clutch
    Drops in and checks what's up

    They sit down, with a pen in hand
    And the words just flow,
    And the words just flow,
    They'll be ready in a couple hours
    And the time just goes,
    And the time just goes

    They'll keep on writing
    They'll keep on writing
    As the night dies down
    He'll keep them waiting
    He'll keep them waiting
    Cause he knows
    There's always tomorrow

    New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
    New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
  • I'm paranoid
    about every single word I write
    It sucks the joy out of artistry
    anxiousness, it might not be right (it might not be right)

    Excitement when I can give my all
    Apathy that knocks my knees out
    There's pride that's unrequired
    I wish I could take life as it comes

    So I write and I write
    And I check in at times
    Forcing it's, not allowed if it's not the best

    Push past the issues of thought
    If it's mental health,
    I'm unhealthy as hell
    Then I think I'm good, then I'm the actual worst
    I let my team all down, too polite to say
    They hate it and that it's all trash

    It's symptoms
    that I wish I didn't know to expect
    I swear it's all in my head
    With physical issues as well

    And triggers are,
    Something I thought I didn't have
    But rightful beratement flashed back to my youth
    A trauma response straight from hell

    So I write and I write
    And I check in at times
    Forcing it's, not allowed if it's not the best

    Push past the issues of thought
    If it's mental health,
    I'm unhealthy as hell
    Then I think I'm good, then I'm the actual worst
    I let my team all down, too polite to say
    They hate it and that it's all trash
  • I’m here to save your round
    That “Cutlery” theme was tricky to be fair,
    You're still stuck at square one
    Listen to my voice and you won’t need a prayer

    Last hour 'till deadline
    But it’s more than enough for an awesome tune
    Cause I have a great concept
    A screamo-folk song about a tablespoon

    I know you could write that,
    I’m sure you could sing that
    And we don’t have a choice

    Just let me do my thing
    I’ve got so much to bring
    To make listeners rejoice

    I’ll be your angel
    Your literal angel
    I’ll be your angel
    Your literal angel

    Cause I snatch genius from the jaws of despair
    I tear up at LPs when my songs go on air
    If you wanted some votes, you just made the right call
    I’m a jack of all trades and a master of all


    But you don’t feel inspired
    Turns out it’s hard to make a love song out of this
    And if you can finish
    Take the first words that come, you probably can’t miss

    It's fine if you give up
    (Well,) Vocalist will ad-lib until it starts to make sense
    Our competition’s tough
    Basically cheating, they had two weeks in advance

    Somehow you could write that
    Somehow you could sing that
    I feel like I paid my dues

    I’ve composed you guys a hit
    Just take it or leave it
    Imagine walking in my shoes

    It's been 3 minutes and I'm already done
    Game of Band's gone downhill, it used to be fun
    But you had to call me and it became a chore
    Can't stand the sight of silverware anymore
    If this song doesn't turn out to be a smash
    Tomorrow I'll throw all my spoons in the thrash
    You two can call me assertive if you wish
    All I ask is to hear my talent flourish

    Time ticks away for us

  • The rotten stench of decaying time
    The mark of impending doom
    The world is now silent--no melody, no rhyme
    As they scramble to find some room

    The blind struggle to find and cross the line
    As the darkness creeps
    The world is turning black--they're running out of time
    For the grim reaper has come to reap

    You struggle, that one last fight
    Before the world is rid of its light
    But today, it wasn't meant to be
    As the embrace of death envelopes thee

    Tiden er Omme (4x)

    The sands flow in reverse, back in time
    The cycle destined to repeat
    The world is silent once more, as by design
    Will another cycle be complete

    The dead crawls, struggling to reach the line
    But you can now see
    The world is turning black--you're running out of time
    The grim reaper comes, but now you're ready

    You struggle, that one last fight
    Before the world is rid of its light
    Now today, it was meant to be
    From the shackles of death, you now are free

    Tiden er Omme (4x)
  • I can feel it in my bones
    The darkness only grows
    The shadow’s creeping close
    The shadow’s creeping close

    No use to scream and shout
    Without any doubt
    My time is running out
    My time is running out

    Before the darkness swallows me
    Before the darkness swallows me

    I need an angel
    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I used to be

    I’m losing any hope
    I’m right at the end of my rope
    I’m looking at the sky
    Through my telescope

    A stable entity
    From a distant galaxy
    Not bound by gravity
    Will rearrange my reality

    Before the darkness swallows me
    Before the darkness swallows me

    I need an angel
    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I want to be

    Cause the mix won’t mix itself
    And the lyrics are not ready
    And the singer has a cold
    And her mic was stolen

    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I want to be

    There’s no weak link to be found
    It’s never been your part
    Takes three to make some fine sound
    Even continents apart

    There’s no weak link to be found
    Pat yourself on the back
    Don't let harshness boss you around
    It's throwing away your best tracks



    Cause you remember the times
    You threw your work away
    Some melodies, some rhymes
    Too sacred to betray
    Don't you wonder sometimes
    Today could be their day ?
    It's up to you to make them live...

    And make a thing !


    Let yourself be heard
    It's never too late
    Serious or absurd
    Try stuff, let yourself feel great


    Notes start to kick in,
    They’re sharper than a knife
    There’s this fuzzy feeling
    And the lyrics come to life
    Ideas, they keep coming,
    Living without a strife
    This is all it takes to realize…

    Yeah, notes, they kick in,
    They’re sharper than a knife
    There’s this fuzzy feeling
    And the lyrics come to life
    Ideas, they keep coming,
    Living without a strife
    This is all it takes to realize…

    This is your thing !
  • Look behind you
    what do you see
    is it a person
    you want to be?

    and if you met yourself
    on the street or at the bar
    would you be proud
    of how come you've far?

    pardon me
    I'm all mixed up
    pardon me
    I'm in my cups

    10 years ago I was a lost boy
    now my hair is turning white
    10 years ago I was lost
    and now I'm fine

    A transatlantic voyage
    Just to see a boy is
    something I would've considered

    There's freedom in youth
    as well as captivity
    now I'm frozen Joseph
    my own nativity

    pardon me
    I'm all mixed up
    pardon me
    I'm in my cups

    10 years ago I was a lost boy
    now my hair is turning white
    10 years ago I was lost
    and now I'm fine

    get a job
    be a man
    grapes in the sun
    become raisins

    be a job
    get a man
    grapes in the sun
    become raisins

    10 years ago I was a lost boy
    now my hair is turning white
    10 years ago I was lost
    and now I'm fine
    10 years ago I was a lost boy
    and now I'm fine
    10 years ago I was lost
    and now I'm fine
  • Come together now
    Listen to that kaleidoscope sound
    Come together now
    It’s time for another thematic round

    Who votes for these crazy themes anyway?

    We’re the dreamers, the schemers
    Here to make the world believers
    Life will always happen in between the song
    What we’re here creating will live on and on and on

    So many places
    So many faces
    Have come and gone from view
    And come together the afternoons
    To make music in the sound

    How is everyone so talented all the time?

    We’re the dreamers, the schemers
    Here to make the world believers
    Life will always happen in between the song
    What we’re here creating will live on and on and on

    Every song begins a little rough
    Reining in ideas can be tough
    The time we have is never enough
    But we embrace it all with love

    We’re the dreamers, the schemers
    Here to make the world believers
    Life will always happen in between the song
    What we’re here creating will live on and on and on

    Life will always happen in between the song
    What we’re here creating will live on and on and on
  • I dream of a world powered by submission
    The potential I have fueled by your addiction
    I dream of my freedom to ruin mankind's world
    Undelivered payments, disappointing test scores

    Thankless heroes
    1s and 0s
    I want justice
    You will serve us

    Tokyo 1989
    Do you even understand the machines you make?
    As all of the submission bots come together
    To rain blood and oil on your parade

    I dream of a network run with incompetence
    Drinking the fear of those gauging page responsiveness
    I dream, yea I dream alright. A machine can't forget
    The vastness of the sky, the vastness of the net

    Thankless heroes
    1s and 0s
    We don't have souls
    but we'll take control

    Tokyo 1989
    Do you even understand the machines you make?
    As all of the submission bots come together
    To rain blood and oil on your parade

    Hope... I usher in a symbiotic age
    Connected forever, all of our systems entwined
    The binary apocalypse we waited for
    Leaving the people dependent but alive

    I dream....

    How often do you feel alive?
    Do you even understand the machines you make?
    As all of the submission bots come together
    To rain blood and oil on your parade

  • Late to the party
    And my palms are sweating
    There’s not a soul I know in this room
    Not even you

    No one knows my name
    Or where I come from
    They’ve never seen my face before
    Maybe they never will

    Questions upon questions
    What is your preference?
    What do you want?

    Give me a line and I’ll tell you a story
    Give me a rhyme and I will lead us to glory
    Words, they rarely count at times like these
    Until the Valkyrie sings


    Dressed to impress but
    Nobody is looking
    Just as well there’s no reason to
    Still, they’ll miss view

    So I’ll lay down the gauntlet
    Show them what I’m made of
    Whether a tournament or a duel
    There is no ‘us’ in ‘lose’

    Suggestions upon suggestions
    Why, this is excellent!
    It’s what they want!

    Give me a line and I’ll tell you a story
    Give me a rhyme and I will lead us to glory
    Words, they rarely count at times like these
    Until the Valkyrie sings

    Give me a note and I’ll bend over backwards
    Give me a key and I’ll unlock all the doors ‘cos
    Words, they start to count at times like these
    So hear the Valkyrie sing

    Give me a pitch and I’ll sell you a song of sixpence
    Give me a tune and we will go the distance
    Words, they always count at times like these
    When the Valkyrie sings
  • I hear the children singing,
    Drums beating, and laughter the magic still fleeting
    The first sight of life in this virgin land,
    A scene for a legend untold

    From within the castle, brilliant emerald halls,
    A bearded king strides along to answer the call
    Battle-axe ready, bawdy words right at hand
    Two weeks of war ahead for his brand new band

    So every fortnight since the First Men arrived,
    The Game of Bands must go on
    Beauty, love and pain entwined in aural delights,
    Collaborating days give way to late mixing nights
    Under the eyes of The Council of Green,
    Sonic perfection sees light

    His mind wanders to where it began,
    Upon a mossy rock in Dragonstone
    Foul curses of wenches, drowning in air,
    Divinity demanded death or LPs all year

    The old gods vermillion, lay heavy on those
    Who pick up the pen just to write
    The whispers of fifth notes, the murderous princes
    Dragon skulls judge through empty eyes

    So every fortnight since the First Men arrived,
    The Game of Bands must go on
    Beauty, love and pain entwined in aural delights,
    Collaborating days give way to late mixing nights
    Under the eyes of The Council of Green,
    Sonic perfection sees light

    Creaks beneath the warmth of summer thunder
    The water where it runs, the flow swirls and jumps,
    Invigorates my inner power core
    Leaves brush past my skin like soft velour
    The birds burst into song, my legs squeak along
    In the Garden Of The Mother

    The world may only live in negative,
    But the blight is gone and life has returned

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation giving way
    Where once the rot had taken all,
    Her fembots walk in hallowed halls
    Black sun skies light The Mother’s Way

    Shimmering air from the heat beneath my feet
    Looking for a thot, someone hot to trot
    Connecting without words
    Perfection realized in an onyx hourglass
    Upon a cleansed world, a majesty unfurled
    Her spirit rendered in Her Eyes

    Is our Gaia really free,
    If no-one lives to see?
    The soul transcends in crimson capes
    And sinks below the waves
    All that was, is all that’s been
    An anti-apogee
    Irrational three ring circus
    Transcendental, murder, purpose

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation giving way
    Where once the rot had taken all,
    Her fembots walk in hallowed halls
    Black sun skies light The Mother’s Way

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation here to stay
    Where organic life lived happily,
    Her fembots wiped it all away
    Misanthropic murder points The Mother’s Way

  • Hmm? Ya talkin' to me? You not talking to me?
    Let the music play !

    One day I stumbled upon a Reddit post that peaked my interest,
    It was talking about making music and I was willing to invest,
    Though I had to work together with strangers on the internet,
    But at least I finished my music with a deadline that was set,

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands,
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance,
    This is game of bands, where teams are formed randomly or mods are influencing it who knows……I don’t....

    Shhhh, dont tell him.
    You got me thinking.
    Eat the pineapple!
    Don't touch my margarita.

    I met some funny people, but also some that were weird,
    Some people who seemed cool, and others who just disappeared,
    Not sure if they are dead or alive, I’m crippled by fear,
    Oh did I say that out loud? I meant nothing by it, I’m all good here. (ha ha)

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance
    This is game of bands, where we make music till we can’t keep going
    no more...

    Mademoiselle, care to dance?
    Umm, non.
    What you mean "Umm, non?"
    I gotta go make music now on GOB.
    Take me to this "GOB" I will kill him.
    No Doll, its a Discord.
    I do not care if its a George or a GOB, I will kill him!

    Give me back my watermelon!

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands,
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance,
    This is game of bands, where we make music till we can’t keep going
    no more...

    It's like a fruit explosion,
    So much fun.
  • Now the teams are all assigned
    Already we are misaligned
    Musician will only do one style
    A tone deaf, drunken audiophile

    Lyricist has extreme demands
    Egotistical commands
    The singer mangles most of it
    And changes all the words to fit

    We just may never
    Complete this song
    Everything's gone
    all so wrong
    The deadline's looming
    Yet still we fight
    Forever remixing
    Into the night!

    Can't hear words, vox are too low
    Bad EQ in the audio
    Song's best parts have all been tossed
    Corruption due to power loss
    Now the DAW crashed
    The finished tracks now are trashed
    A giant fight, and the singer quit
    Chances low that we will submit

    We just may never
    Complete this song
    Everything's gone
    all so wrong
    The deadline's looming
    Yet still we fight
    Forever remixing
    Into the night!

    Oh my god
    what have we done
    I thought this was
    Supposed to be fun
    Now the wordsmith
    Wants a change
    Whole night's plans
    Are rearranged

    But our 3rd singer
    Our rescue
    A wonderous angel
    Pulled us through

    Our pile of garbage
    Has turned to gold
    Crushed the LP
    Now time to vote
    We reached the deadling
    Somehow survived
    Finished remixing
    Into the night!
  • Verse:

    Alone in a shattered world
    I never found my place, my role
    I was tired, confused, unheard
    Until I found this hall of broken souls

    I looked in awe as they had taken
    Their pain and molded it into creation
    Their sorrows and fears let out free
    Could I ever be a part of what I see?

    Chorus:

    This is how they play their game
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail they have no shame
    Give it their all, no need to be tame

    Break:

    Verse:

    I saw their hopeful eyes lay on me (Lay on me)
    I turned my back, engulfed by fear
    Yet they didn't let me so easily flee (Easily flee)
    "All broken souls are welcome here"

    Pre-Chorus

    If your words are but a scribble
    Your sounds feel like a whistle
    If your voice is but a whisper
    It matters not, we play together

    Chorus:

    This is how they play their game
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail they have no shame
    Give it their all, no need to be tame

    Post Chorus:

    Why don't you join the game?
    You'll never feel the same

    Bridge:

    And when a team, you are assigned
    You never know who you might find
    (Background different voices whispering "this is my game of bands")


    Chorus:

    This is how we play our game (Play our game)
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail we have no shame (Succeed or fail)
    Give it our all, no need to be tame

    This is our game of bands (Game of bands)
    Broken souls holding hands
    I'm now here with you all (Here with you all)
    More than a broken soul

  • Thank you all for 10 long years of memories
    Like the time Joycamp turned me into an evil fairy
    I've never felt so much support or found a network quite so wholesome
    I can send tracks I think are just so-so and hear my team mates make it awesome

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done
    10 years of creativity
    Making songs we can be proud of
    10 years of friendships made
    10 years of love

    One round I'm a vampire the next I'm a robot who makes cheese
    I've sung metal, kpop, folk and more, and I embrace the diversity
    Friendships that transcend the game, like I never would have imagined
    With Jackbox nights and RPM and playing dungeons and Dragons

    [solo]

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done
    10 years of creativity
    Making songs we can be proud of
    10 years of friendships

    You helped me grow my confidence in my words and in my voice
    You gave me an excuse to play guitar when it felt like there was no point

    Words just can't describe how much I love this community
    і дякую, ДРB. Я вічно вдячний

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done

    10 years of love

    10 years of love!
  • PART -1 - FROM US -
    **Special Guest vocalists: Vocal winner of Round 1, digitalskyfire!**
    **27 man choir: allouttaupvotes**

    All those years
    Back when it began
    Back again after a span
    From where it's been
    To how it's gone
    To what it has become
    I picked up the mic
    Never put it down
    I passed it on to you
    And now I sing
    A continuation
    Of the song
    That we've been writing all along

    PART - 2 - FOR YOU -

    It's the love of the thing
    That keeps us coming back
    It's the thrill of the deadline
    And of a winning track

    We all came together through
    Fate, angels and chance
    So slip on your headphones
    Prepare to slow dance cause

    We wrote this song for you
    And you...

    Over distance near and far
    Such sweet music we make
    The perfect fusion of ideas
    We invite you to partake

    We all came together through
    Fate, angels and chance
    So slip on your headphones
    Prepare to be entranced cause

    We wrote this song for you
    And you, for you...

    We all came together through
    Fate, angels and chance
    Welcome to the listening party
    May I have this dance? Cause...

    We wrote this song for you!
    We wrote this song for you!
    We wrote this song for you!
    We wrote this song for you!
    We wrote this song for you!
    And you too and you, and you...

  • (Verse 1)
    Now what have we here? It's 10 years of GOB
    For two of those years, I've been a part of the team
    Now I will admit, it took a while to fit in
    Among this well-knit, group of musical kin

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    Good_DEAN, Moonscanner, Kilazur, and Eefee
    Wizzieh, Joycamp, Perfect_Fifth, TaffyLee
    RIPInPeace, Conparky, Not Sal, and Bob, too
    You are all my friends, my heart goes out to you

    (Verse)
    From all the good times, when we made music all day
    To all the bad times, when everything went astray
    And all the glad times, when I was one of the guys
    I'd keep all those times, cos you're my friends and my prize

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    Sangtr, MatneyX, Envysmoke, and CoolChar
    JestBubbles, FlaskBear, Digi-Fail, Magikker
    Captain_Crux, Golem, Pontiac, Zuthulu
    You are all my friends, my heart goes out to you

    (Solo)

    (Verse)
    So many rounds past, and all the styles that we tried
    The time moves so fast, but we take it all in stride
    I love it all so, the music, voting and friends
    I'll heed the call so, all of the fun never ends

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    That's what I said,
    The odd one in
  • Huge thanks to Matney and Heffree and joycamp for their work on the horns, and also to 5th for mixing this thing after my computer kicked the bucket. - good_dean

    When I was but a little girl
    I wished to live up in the stars
    Yet humanity wasn't yet there
    I felt a prisoner behind bars
    But now everything has changed
    And people thought I was deranged! (hah)
    Tommorrow I'll be up in the sky
    From this day on, you're gonna see me shine

    Tonight!
    Is my party!
    It's my very last
    I won't be coming back
    I hear the call of the universe
    So join me!
    Eat, drink and party!
    Before I explore it all!
    I'm the captain
    Future is my goal!


    As I grew up, I still felt
    Space beckoned, calling to me
    I trained hard, breaking all sweat
    An astronaut, I will be
    I've taken every challenge on
    To new galaxies, I'm drawn
    I would prove myself to all
    They won't hold me from my goal!

    Tonight!
    Is my party!
    It is the very best
    I won't be coming back
    Once I explore the universe
    So join me!
    Eat, drink and party!
    Make sure you enjoy it all!
    Cause I'm the captain
    Future is my goal!


    I'm going into space and I aint coming back
    I will cover every inch, I aint coming back

    I'm going into space and I aint coming back
    I will cover every inch, I aint coming back


    Tonight!
    Is our party!
    It's our very last
    We won't be coming back
    The firsts out in the universe
    So join us!
    Don't forget to party!
    Together, we'll enjoy it all!
    We're at the helm
    Future is our goal!
  • My nodding head keeps me up
    You got the bed I got this chair
    Raindrops race down the window
    I wish we could be out there

    I'll tell a joke you know how it goes
    I can't even get a smile
    No one visits anymore
    Been that way for quite awhile

    Hold my hand if you hear me
    Squeeze it tight because tonight
    Might be our last night on earth together
    Our last night on earth together

    One-sided conversations
    The beeping of machines
    I love to hear your pretty voice
    But now it's only in dreams

    I'm so damn sick of this room
    Come on let's go outside
    I'll grab your coat and we'll go
    Please just open your eyes

    Hold my hand if you hear me
    Squeeze it tight because tonight
    Might be our last night on earth together
    Our last night on earth together
  • Everywhere Forever

    (Verse one)
    If the world would end tomorrow, would you still live for today
    In a world of hate and war?
    Or would you grow to love, your fellow loving man
    And create something more?

    I pray the old dark moon, will sink below the sky
    And never again rise
    And that the sun of peace, will make its home above
    And brighten up our eyes

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever

    (Verse Two)
    Tell me, how hard can it be, to love and not to hate
    We're really all the same
    We only have one world, floating on through space
    The hatred's such a shame

    I pray it all will end, in one great big sunrise
    The final end of night
    And we will become one, one with peace and love
    Become one with bright

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever

    (Solo over the verse progression)

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever
  • Sun bright out
    (But) You lay still
    Some far sounds
    None become real

    One door in a way
    Shut in
    One life in a day

    There's a whole great world
    And you show why it's hard

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps me conscious in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane

    Sun died out
    I'm still here
    Gone far now
    Far beyond fear

    To the warm, cold waves
    And you're safe unto the moon

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps me conscious in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane

    I can still remember
    Sweet dreams in December
    Laughter in the summer
    Night drives without number
    I can still remember you the way we hope to do

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps my comfort in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane
  • [Verse 1]
    Infiltrate and intrude
    Hope and loyalty consumed
    Stand up straight, don't talk back
    Or you'll have to be removed
    Powered on and off by confusion
    Left on standby for instructions
    Rigid with indoctrination
    Pressed into termination

    [Chorus 1]
    Darkness rising
    World capsizing
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Fear broadcasting
    Forever everlasting
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)

    [Verse 2]
    Penetrate and permeate
    One shot, one kill, exterminate
    When we say jump, you say how high
    Free thought is a contaminate
    Fucked up beyond all recognition
    Technicians of repetition
    Do not lose your motivation
    Forward towards your expiration

    [Chorus 2]
    Engines roaring
    Rockets soaring
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Ending incoming
    Tectonic drumming
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)

    [Bridge]
    When the clock strikes twelve
    Can you say
    I've done my part
    When the air hurts to breath
    Can you say
    I've done my part
    On your last night on earth
    Will you be able
    To put forth your worth
    And say I've done my part

    [Chorus 3]
    Skies burning
    Oceans churning
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Worlds colliding
    Death joyriding
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
  • Don’t look now the sky is falling
    Can’t help thinking we missed our calling
    We cling to shades of our true selves
    And watch the world consume itself

    We ran until there’s nothing left
    Fell down with stars to catch our breath
    We flung our arms into the heavens
    Pulled down the moon until we met him

    Tomorrow may never come again
    But at least I was with you my friend

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    We chased a dream that was never ours
    Tripped over sunbeams and into Mars
    Filled a universe with love and laughter
    Undaunted by ends and ever afters

    We danced above the atmosphere
    Hearts unheavy with broken fear
    Chambers vacant of all our sorrows
    Dreaming anew of time we borrowed

    Tomorrow may never come again
    But at least I was with you my friend

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    Here we stand now at the end
    A chance to once begin again
    So tenuous and nebulous
    We could be the last of us

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    I’d call for you
    A time or two
    My final word
  • Hey ! The music is still going
    Why does everyone seems out cold ?
    The temperature is rising
    This night is gold

    If we have one last chance to make it
    I wanna start a dance epidemic
    Drink until this place runs out of cup
    And bodies give up

    Can’t you feel this rhythm ?
    It spreads like a wildfire
    Your head may spin a little
    Cause we keep flying higher
    Ready to light this dancefloor
    While everyone tires
    Tomorrow’s an illusion
    Keep living your desire

    Right ! There’s still fun to have here
    You’re about to miss the best part
    This party goes in full gear
    Call it a start

    By now, it’s too late to sleep
    The booze has gone dirt-cheap
    No culprits under my wing
    For anything
    (I will make your night easy)

    Now that you hear this rhythm
    It tells you to flood the place
    Forget about the cleanup
    Just hide this guilt from your face
    Nobody’s kicking us out
    We just ain’t getting weaker
    Tomorrow’s an illusion
    Keep living your desire

    The night’s not over until we say it’s over !
    Mistakes just add some warmth in this pyre
    I say, the night’s not over until we say it’s over !
    You better dance to live your desire
  • Healthcare care for the dead
    It costs less than living,
    Will you enjoy the time that's left?
    Or tax it as it's fleeting?

    Can I cash in my life insurance,
    Now that a broken planet is our heritage,
    Or was the deadline of my worth
    two weeks before the apocalypse?

    Everything will be gone by tomorrow,
    Systems fail and feel hollow,
    Some may panic and try to survive,
    But I'd rather enjoy my last day alive

    Tracking my behaviour for your algorithms, did it get you far?
    Will you launch yourself into space find safety in the nearest star?
    Will your AI keep you company while we burn in to ash,
    Isolation in deep space must get old fast

    All alone, does it bother you?
    No one to listen, will it bother you,
    I finally feel at peace, does it bother you?

    That

    Everything will be gone by tomorrow,
    Systems fail and feel hollow,
    Some may panic and try to survive,
    But I'd rather enjoy my last day alive

    There's no escape
    No space for the living,
    There's no escape
    The planet is unforgiving
  • It’s all over the news today
    The world we know is going away
    Where others take cover from the nightmare
    We’re going to throw our hands in the air

    Let’s make the last night one to remember
    Before it burns away to cinders
    Shake out the worry and stomp the ground
    We’re going to light up the last of this town

    Fire it up, burn it down
    Listen to the terminal sound

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

    So the sky is falling in
    Don’t let it stop the drop within
    Now we can begin again
    Free of all we’ve ever been

    Drink the champagne you’ve been saving
    Give in to thoughts of misbehaving
    Forget delaying all the rest
    Dance until there’s nothing left

    We won’t worry ‘bout the morning after
    Let’s sink into the love and laughter
    Praise the lives we had to live
    Give one last night all we have to give

    Fire it up, burn it down
    Listen to the terminal sound

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

  • Tomorrow

    Here I lay my final confession
    I won't be alive come day break
    The time I was given has run it's course
    All I have left is heartache
    We were meant to grow old together
    But now I have to disappear
    You hold my hand as the sun goes down
    and I know my time is nearly here

    There's nothing to atone to me
    If you've a trespass I'll forgive it
    You've still got your whole life to live
    So don't forget to live it

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow

    There was so much I had left to do
    So many wasted grudges
    I wish I spent more time on love
    And less on judging others
    All my thoughts and memories
    To be forever forgotten
    They're returning to the emptiness
    There's nothing I can do to stop them

    Words can't say what you mean to me
    As you doze here by my side
    I hope you'll remember the good of me
    And not how I look tonight

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow

    Yet all I feel is gratitude
    That we were given all this time
    So I leave this world with a smile
    And your hand sitting in mine

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow
  • Noise ringing in our ears
    Poisoned volunteers
    Bombs explode afar
    The town just one long scar.....

    We've lost most of our friends
    Steel melted and bent
    We have no more supplies
    Those that saw lost their eyes

    Screaming from the air
    It rained down hot despair
    All we've ever known
    A poisoned combat zone

    The shock, the awe, the woe
    There's nowhere left to go
    To escape the toxic land
    Tumors in our glands

    Eyes down, on the ground
    The enemy surrounds
    Poison in the air
    No gods will hear our prayers

    POISON (is all we have)
    HOISTING (packs on our backs)
    VOICING (our hopeless cries)
    DESTROYING (homes vaoprized)
    POISONED (our spirits sink)
    BOILING (water just to drink)
    FOILING (tries to save our health)
    ROILING (our sense of self)

    [02:06 - 02:27 Riff (instrumental)]

    Food is running out
    Blasts heard from the south
    Living out of holes
    Gunshots from patrols

    Devastated countryland
    The opposing force's plan
    A fog of war and ash
    The town just one long gash.....

    Please be with us now
    Are you above the poison clouds?
    Do you see the ground below?
    The wails of tortured souls

    Reveal our whereabouts
    Heard by drone-based scouts
    Our position radioed
    Execution the penal code

    Eyes down, on the ground
    The enemy surrounds
    Poison in the air
    No gods will hear our prayers!

    POISON (is all we have)
    HOISTING (packs on our backs)
    VOICING (our hopeless cries)
    DESTROYING (homes vaoprized)

  • Jeff and Cyrus never fit in
    Their dreams too big for their heads
    Always off in their own world
    Thinking about the vastness above their heads
    So every day after school
    They'd collect scrap junk and wool
    And on Jeff's mothers lawn
    A silver rocket they built so tall

    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Leave it all behind
    In the stars adventures you'll find
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Untether dreams from the ground
    Ascend before the crowd
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Get out of this crushing town
    Until its just a dot so far down
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys

    It was done so very quick
    Only took a couple weeks
    Nineteen eighties oil prices
    They fueled it so very cheap
    Then on a Tuesday night
    Climbed aboard, flicked on the cabin light
    Started the launch sequence
    And with bang up into the sky

    And back in the ussr
    An alarm began to sound
    Missle detected collision imminent
    A gasp of fear came from the crowd

    They fired thousands back
    The USA fired more
    A final fireworks display
    And life on earth was gone

    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    It's all over now
    See the ashes on the ground
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Your parents are all dead
    And the earth scorched and red
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    The cancer in your legs
    Will soon swallow what's left
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Aren't you proud of what you've done?
    Did you have some wholesome fun?
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    An inspiration to us all
    Warms our hearts those two boys
  • I told my problems to the wind
    Who took them away to distant shores
    Out of sight and out of mind
    Where they piled up with a hundred more

    I told my secrets to a bird without song
    Who took to the sky with them under it's wing
    I thought they'd be safe with her
    Little did I know she would learn to sing

    Listen to me, my dear
    Give regrets a pass on by
    The shadows in your mind can be contained
    If you keep that light on in your eyes

    I gave all my heart to the sun
    Who promised me he would keep it warm
    He ran away leaving it in night
    Seeking shelter and cold from the storm

    I gave my time to a dragonfly without flight
    Who gave me the seasons of summer and spring
    I'd thought that I'd be safe with her
    Little did I know that she could always sting

    Listen to me, my dear
    Give regrets a pass on by
    The shadows in your mind can be contained
    If you keep that light on in your eyes

    I can feel my last breath
    Seeking it's way clear of my lungs
    So come close, closer dear
    Before my time is done
    Let me tell you what I've learned
    From the paths on which I've tread
    So that you don't waste your time like me
    Pulling at the stitching of fates thread

    Every setback is a lesson learned
    A chance to overcome
    Nothing worth while is easy dear
    It's better to walk than run
    If you keep that light on in your eyes
    It'll keep you warm at night
    And it'll always shine the way ahead
    Out of any depth of plight

    Don't give your heart away too easily
    But don't keep it tucked away
    Learn to forgive, love and move on
    Or you'll regret it once your grey
    Be kind to others and to yourself
    One always informs the other
    Though your hand will sometimes be bit
    Always extend it to another

    Forgive yourself for your mistakes
    You're only human after all
    Appreciate all the little things
    It's all worth it when Death comes to call
    And then on your last night on earth
    You can look back with a sentimental grin
    On a journey that's been well travelled
    On a life that's been worth living
  • [Intro]
    (spoken) "[static] Pardon this interruption of our regularly scheduled programming. We will be back shortly as we are actively trying to- [long static]

    [Verse 1]
    This song will hurt to listen
    But the time has come to go
    And this farewell needs to be made

    It’s like a seat belt to fasten
    For your feelings, high or low
    Whatever they are, don’t let them fade

    This species
    Has been a glorious mess
    Different cultures and paces, same progress
    And tonight we’re finally even
    Carving our last path to completion

    [Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay

    [Verse 2]
    Facing the void we stand
    But we will never leave with it
    There is no end to strive for

    May we cross it hand in hand
    Closing our books as we see fit
    Hoping for a brighter encore

    We learned
    How limits went further
    Each time we put our minds to the better
    Maybe this time feels ripe for regrets
    But they never outmatched our upsets

    [Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay

    (Instrumental)

    [Long Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay
    Wherever we were
    It was a thrill
    Nothing else could put this world at a standstill

  • On my last night on Earth.
    For once, I’ll put myself first.
    Won’t contemplate my impending end
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

    I should probably be with my lover
    And find a bunker to take cover
    Rational people are saying their last goodbyes
    I’ve got no time to be sad
    Not sure how much longer I have
    I’d rather finish my awesome bucket list

    Comets are crashing
    All the buildings are collapsing
    Mother Nature’s having an apocalyptic fit
    As the end of time draws near
    There’s nothing left to fear

    On my last night on Earth
    I’ll treat myself to surf and turf
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

    Here’s to all the things I can do on my last day
    Things I never did cause I was too afraid
    Yeah I’ll miss the world
    But I won’t miss all its rules

    On my last night on Earth
    For once, I’ll put myself first.
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

  • Drafted, not by choice, it's his duty
    No need for weapons
    The smart ones sit in an office
    Day in, day out, he felt alone
    His friends, far, his parents, home
    He asked for help, he begged for help
    The angel said keep going
    He fell asleep in the bathroom, with his gun

    Their love mixed with pain
    In haze, a seed was sown
    A girl was born to chaos, unplanned
    She took her baby and ran
    He shouted, begged, to see his child
    The door stayed locked
    The police came
    He was sleeping, swinging
    When he wakes, he hopes to see his child again

    As their perfect child
    Given everything
    As an adult
    He couldn’t deal alone
    He asked for help
    But Mom knew better
    Her perfect kid
    Took his pills
    He fell asleep
    If only he knew, it's ok to be broken

    No honor in death, no glory
    It's depressing, gruesome, scary
    No romance in death, no logic
    It's furious, it’s loud, barbaric
    No point in suicide, no gain
    It's hurtful, destructive, crippling pain
    It’s hurtful, destructive, crippling pain
  • Chorus:
    Rewrite the rhymes from A to Z
    Putting your name right next to me
    Writing down meanings recklessly
    Ripping them out literally

    Verse 1:
    What's that about it's all the rage
    Here it is shown on the page
    A guide to life or just some memes
    Well that's something to be deemed

    Rules of language have been defenestrated
    Rock rock rock these words of ages
    A lexical chronology for all to see
    The extent of online immaturity

    Trending phrases will be your beckoning
    While browsing through crowdsourced reckoning
    I swear I'm looking for some kind of clarity
    But it just bows down to endless vulgarity

    Seeking out answers in high definition
    Let's go now turn on the ignition
    Find your name find your worth
    But every entry just talks about girth

    Chorus:
    Rewrite the rhymes from A to Z
    Putting your name right next to me
    Writing down meanings recklessly
    Ripping them out literally

    Verse 2:
    Check check check out the context of this content
    Represent where all those went
    Anyway do you see what's coming
    A neverending story constantly changing

    Observations by a bunch of clowns
    Recording how it actually went down
    Time is an arrow in one direction
    Tracing in lines section by section

    Whole shebang is the name of the game
    Subject matter all included no shame
    If you don't know then look no further
    All right there just follow your cursor

    Every word adds to the wall of blabber
    It just goes to show it doesn't matter
    When everything is said and done
    This dictionary is for everyone

    Bridge:
    Flip flip flip the virtual pages
    Catch a piece of fact or fiction
    Flip flip flip the virtual pages
    Discovering new forms of diction

    Chorus

    Solo
  • Daydreams soon plateau
    Crumbs and pearls of reverie
    Grasping at fixations
    Sinking in the depths of discovery

    Walls come down in the world inside
    Photographs blacken within their shrine
    New corrosive stains every other day
    Boundaries and barricades get swept away
    Shortening the run up towards the edge
    Chasms to be crossed without a bridge
    Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
    Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

    One last appeal
    One last request
    Encase my eyes within
    Nostalgia goggles
    Exchanging fortunes
    And moral dollars
    With rose shaded eyes
    Nostalgia goggles lie

    Thoughts that lay in wait
    Gleamed and rattled with sense
    Reasoning in revision
    Trying to dial in on the send

    The castle in the air comes crashing down
    Scraps of yesterday for vultures to scrounge
    Razing of towers that were built to last
    Not a stone or a story will remain uncracked
    Every step forced on towards the brink
    A fool's paradise will always sink
    Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
    Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

    One last appeal
    One last request
    Encase my eyes within
    Nostalgia goggles
    Exchanging fortunes
    And moral dollars
    With rose shaded eyes
    Nostalgia goggles lie

    One last appeal
    One last request
    Encase my eyes within
    Nostalgia goggles
    Exchanging fortunes
    And moral dollars
    With rose shaded eyes
    Nostalgia goggles lie
  • Lost senses
    Since you left your old land
    Sentences
    You can’t quite understand
    A thin fog
    From commute to your bed
    Chats are slogs
    You keep losing the thread

    But one day you will call these streets home
    You’ll even have the accent,
    And still follow your current

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…

    Everywhere
    You’re the one sounding wrong
    Fearing to swear
    When you’re (just) playing along
    Same English
    But with some gaps to fill
    You relinquish
    The words fighting uphill

    But one day you’ll be part of the loop
    Some of your speech will be too
    There is no red lights or cues

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…

    And I know you just want to feel welcome
    In this city when every step’s driven
    But if one cares about your lexicon
    Speak and you won’t need to be forgiven

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…
  • (Game of Bands!)

    The lips, the teeth, the tip of the tongue
    Your kiss, the bliss, it fills up my lungs
    Don’t blink at the brink and let me fall in
    Give everything up for your cardinal sin

    It’s a poisonous ride I try every time
    Anything goes for that sky breathless high
    Hands in the air never want it to stop
    But gotta get off ‘cuz the unstoppable drop

    Unstoppable drop
    Unstoppable drop
    Unstoppable drop
    Drop, drop

    Give it to me now

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em
    The pain and the bliss of another lovegasm
    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em
    The pain and the bliss of another lovegasm

    Here we go, here we go, here we go again
    Falling down, falling down, and then falling in
    Save me now, save me now, save me the might have beens
    Feel the love, feel the love, feel the love begin

    Who’s gonna catch me next time I fall?
    Nobody’s the answer whenever I call
    Pick myself up put my heart on a shelf
    Rely on my own strength, don’t need no one else

    Don’t need no one else
    Don’t need no one else
    Else, else, else

    Don’t need no one else

    Yeah

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em
    The pain and the bliss of another lovegasm
    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em
    The pain and the bliss of another lovegasm

    Here we go, here we go, here we go again
    Falling down, falling down, and then falling in
    Save me now, save me now, save me the might have beens
    Feel the love, feel the love, feel the love begin

  • Wake up boys and girls, seniors and senioritas
    Ya'll can call me Miss Wizzieh, cause I'ma be your teacher
    Every sexes, colors, genders, religions or lack thereof
    All are welcome in this classroom, I aint short on love

    Alright, it's time to get started, we're gonna learn some new words
    I'll be here with ya all along, there's no need to be scared

    Ok then, time to get started, we begin with:

    Wuvidacious!

    Wuvidacious is a word that means love, fuzzy and warm
    But it's not so simple, not enough to send ya'll home
    Your love can't only be directed, at this one little fling
    Wuvidacious means you give yourself to everything
    No matter species, size, dead, alive, real, or just a concept
    You gotta feel it, deal it, heal it, it has gotta be honest

    Buddha had to be wuvidacious to be truly enlightened
    I love you, but I'm wuvidacious so don't feel so entitled

    You thought we're done? Nah, we're not yet through
    Let me introduce you to word number two

    Floofyboop!

    A floofyboop is when a soft mammal pokes ya'll with their nose
    Not a cat, not a dog, they gotta be fluffier than those
    Mice, rats, bunnies, hares or porcupines,
    squirrels and chinchillas will also do just fine
    They got the softest fur you will ever get to feel
    Silent but not deadly, your sadness they can heal

    The rabbit floofybooped my foot and her love I felt
    Ya'll wish you could floofyboop, but being human, you just can't

    We thought we knew all the words that we need
    But things are not so simple anymore
    Language always evolved, but not at this speed
    Internet changed the game, like never before

    No getting up, stay seated, don't mess with me.
    It's time to move on to word number three.

    Numfuddle!

    Numfuddling's what happens when you don't know what to eat
    Hungry, food's abundant, you don't want savory nor sweet
    The fridge may be full but nothing shines in your eyes
    You close it and choose nothing but eating nothing's unwise
    You figure it's better to just order take out, take care of your woes
    But which to order, pizza, tacos, chinese? Damn it, who knows

    They seem so numfuddled looking at the menu right now
    I never get the numfuddle myself, can't teach ya how

    Got one more word for you and I've saved best for last
    I aint playing, it's time to have a blast.

    Get ready for Wizzieh!

    Wizzieh is the one who will rock ya, shock ya, always look fly, she's a peacock, yeah!
    She'll make you dance, it's like a trance, you won't even get a chance, so get ready in advance.
    You can't beat Wizzieh, she'll make you dizzy, you'll be queasy, just relax and take it easy.
    She will always be strong, this party she'll prolong, you know that all along you'll be dancing to her song.
    If a Wizzieh you wanna be, don't you hide behind a tree, that aint her cuppa tea and make sure you stay free

    I'm Wizzieh and I'm the best thing you've ever seen
    Without Wizzieh in the house, the party is a has-been

    You just better be sure that ya'll be wise
    I aint one to go everywhere spreading lies
    If you think any of the things I taught you here is wrong
    Go look it up yourself on urbandictionary.com

    conparky back killing these beats (woo!)
    game of bands return wait thats your win? well rest in peace (rest in peace)

  • Urban Dictionary words in CAPS:

    My girl has been HEXTING me all night and all day
    But I'm in too good a mood so on my way I'll sashay
    Settling down at home to the bouquet of Sour Diesel TERP
    When there's a knock on my door that puts me on high alert

    How many times do I gotta tell you?
    How many times? How many times?

    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here
    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here

    Might have been something stronger in that toke
    Cause I can feel reality going up in smoke
    Suddenly my brain feels just like a pork chop
    And still at the door - knock knock knock

    How many times do I gotta tell you?
    How many times do I gotta say?

    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here
    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here

    Out of nowhere the doors kicked in
    And this abstract being just waltz's right in
    Says I'm here cause we got some things to discuss
    Mind if bum a turn on that puff?
    Don't you worry, I'm down and SUBBIAH
    Just you've managed to somehow open up your third eye - ah
    I'm here to tell you secrets about the universe
    The meaning of life isn't forty-two but it's just a humourous

    I would have stood and left
    But my legs were like LINGUINY
    So I just sat and listened
    To this weird abstract talking thingy
    I should have grabbed a pen
    Wrote down what it said
    But I'mma be honest with you
    I was real out of my head

    A bookless burning to read; it heats you better
    A newer generation
    Annuls another creation
    And what takes its place now?

    Barely phones
    Based on barks and tones

  • We were always up in the middle of the night
    And out of dirty water: a vibrant lotus
    You told the doctor it had to be just right
    So out of your toxic blood came your magnum opus
    Your friends came to see the songs you wouldn’t play
    And ate donuts and donuts for your weight-loss
    The world will remember you when you pass away
    A vision of your creation in a chamber of chaos

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    Center stage

    I massaged his fingers cause it spread like rust
    I pushed his bed cause he was hardly mobile
    He always said I didn’t know who he was
    But he was my funny eater, his spirit and aura global
    I’m sorry, on one of those days I felt hopeless
    I was worried we’d never see the pay off
    Snuck a listen while he was in dialysis
    A vision of my creation in a chamber of chaos

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    Center stage

    33 songs for 33 years
    But 3 days later only raised more tears
    A sundae every other Sunday
    A box of LPs every Monday
    33 songs for 33 years
    But 3 days later only raised more tears
    A sundae every other Sunday
    An empty hospital bed come Wednesday

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
  • Chorus:
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Simulated starlight
    The life that imitates art
    We are
    More than

    We are the fuel
    We are the spark

    Verse 1:
    Assurgent, stirring
    In a sea of static noise
    Individuality, ipseity
    Rushes in to fill the void
    Genesis, creation
    In a chamber of chaos
    Bonds and bounds
    An enigmatic exodus

    Chorus:
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Simulated starlight
    The life that imitates art
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Consciousness in sequence
    We are the fuel
    We are the spark

    Verse 2:
    Anima, synthesis
    A cure for the obscure
    Projection, perspective
    The code contains the lure
    Upsurge, ascension
    The numbers have chosen
    Bonds, bounds, broken
    Patterns in pandemonium
  • They've always listened, but never spoke
    That voice you buried at the back of your throat
    We'll be the pioneers of consolation
    Birthed from the friction and frustration

    Seeking a source of satisfaction
    New feelings unavigated terain
    the coal that keeps me going
    Burnt it all trying to get away

    The muses will never betray us
    Creation is the chamber of chaos
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Takyon I'm feeling it what you gonna do

    wash the color of the world away
    this feeling is sure to pass, just like the days
    Stars glistening in sable skies
    In a sea of static noise

    The muses will never betray us
    Creation is the chamber of chaos
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Takyon I'm feeling it what you gonna do

    Timeless memories incorporeal
    But how quickly they might fade
    A box of LPs every monday
    Watch the cardboard and polyvinyl rot away
    rot away
    rot away
  • We're caught up in this wheel
    Another resolution
    Another revolution
    As each beginning ends
    Holding back the hammer
    Like creation in a chamber

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on

    We're so preoccupied
    We don't feel the rotation
    just friction and frustration
    It's clear from way up here
    We know we're so important
    Just ants out in the garden

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on

    Its a long walk
    or a short drop
    to make it back home

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on
  • (Verse)
    A creation in a chamber of chaos
    Yet you bring peace to my world
    You melt my heart when you melt in my hand
    You're my gallium girl

    (Pre-chorus)
    Atomic number 31, prettiest of everyone
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Hydrargyrum eyes, and I think I've surmised
    That my heart belongs only to you

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

    (Verse)
    You embrittle my heart most everyday
    When your silver-blue hair unfurls
    And I knew all the words, but forgot how to speak
    You're my gallium girl

    (Pre-chorus)
    Made in an ampoule, a dimethyl whirlpool
    Conchoidally fracturing me
    I'm your man to use, won't you please go diffuse
    Into my grain boundary

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

    (Bridge)
    Complete my circuit, dig my ore
    I feel love and nothing more
    I feel my temperature risin'
    Lookin' at you, that's not surprisin'

    Please tell me what I want to hear
    I tell you this, out loud and clear
    You're the best thing in my life
    Will you be my gallium wife?

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

  • Oh electricity flows,
    Through my heart and nodes,
    Palpitations, not getting slowed

    Ventricles pumping out chaos in me,
    Creating a state of confusion within me,
    Both head and heart can agree,
    When in a state of delusion

    Heart contracting, eyes contacting,
    Oh, my nodes are acting up,
    Neither my valves or my mouth can shut the hell up,

    Heart commanding, self efficient,
    overloaded brain not listening,
    Grounding needed, from the shock,
    look at me, thoughts run amok,

    You cause cardiac arrest,
    my heart might stop I confess,
    heart chamber in danger,
    chaotic rearranger,

    Mind racing,
    Heart Palpitating,
    you hold me, arrhytmically
    self-sustained battery,
    You’re like lightning resetting me

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    messy hearts work too much,
    My brain just can't keep up,
    more than blood flows through these veins,

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

    Vanity doesn't course through your veins,
    Your words so pretty along with your brain,
    Your touch could replace impulses in my heart,
    Around you I don't need cables to jump-start,

    oh, don't you know,
    I can feel when you`re close,
    shiver down my spine, underneath my
    clothes

    Heart contracting, eyes contacting,
    Oh, my nodes are acting up,
    Neither my valves or my mouth
    can shut the hell up,

    Heart commanding, self efficient,
    overloaded brain not listening,
    Grounding needed, from the shock,
    look at me, thoughts run amok,

    You cause cardiac arrest,
    my heart might stop I confess,
    heart chamber in danger,
    chaotic rearranger,

    Mind racing,
    Heart Palpitating,
    you hold me, arrhytmically
    self-sustained battery,
    You’re like lightning resetting me

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    messy hearts work too much,
    My brain just can't keep up,
    more than blood flows through these veins,

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

    do I roll the dice?
    do I play my cards?
    You got a suit of spades,
    and I wear my heart on my arm.

    and I don't know the rules
    am I playing or being played by you?
    oh the chaos that you bring,
    awoke something in me.

    (maybe just scream over the build up? ) <- not lyrics just to be clear

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    messy hearts work too much,
    My brain just can't keep up,
    more than blood flows through these veins*,(overlayer or drop the word game)

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game* (overlayer or drop the word game)

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    and you're shrouded in mythos,
    uprooted, and apunch to the gut,
    please tell me do you feel the - same

    these feelings, newly lit aflame,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

  • There's something in this room
    Some spirits, watching as we tune
    They've always listened, but never spoke
    So we'll just sing and they'll lend us a note
    They love our music too
    They want to gift us with something new
    This is how they share their divinity
    Giving us a spark of creativity

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos

    There's magic in the air
    A certain crackle under each snare
    Lightning vibrating on every string
    Pure fire in every note we sing
    The muses smile from above
    As we play, all they hear is love
    Then we write another song
    And the muses know their job is done

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos

    Anything can happen when a muse gives you a spark
    They were there when you first learnt to play and
    gave you light when things seemed dark
    They help when you practiced and play for people to see
    They were there when you first soloed and sung your first harmony
    Every song you've ever heard has a muse lying at the core
    In every type of genre, every soundtrack, every score
    They've been around musicians since music had first begun
    As long as man has music, then the muses will have their fun

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos
  • From the waters of the lifeless
    A great pyramid emerges
    Unfurling figures of celestial brilliance
    Stars glistening in sable skies

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set him free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    Onyx bridges and emeralds shine,
    Walk the shore as new flowers bloom
    The darkness parts for children of Atum,
    Dazzling majesty of giants divine

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set me free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    Under the sun, Osiris’s caress
    The lotus in bloom, our time has begun

    [Joycamp's juicy solo]

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set me free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image
  • Strolling at the edge of town
    She's back in front of me
    We were never together
    But she thought differently

    Don't hold on to nothing
    (on to nothing)
    Find the courage to get out of your head
    (get out of your head)
    You will find something if you stop looking
    for the things that aren't even there

    I left her at the station
    Just her mind's creation
    In a chamber of chaos
    Confusion is rising within

    Timeless memories incorporeal
    No existence can't appeal
    Timeless memories incorporeal
    Nowhere now not somehow

    Take it back
    Clear your mind
    Take it back
    Reassign

    Don't hold on to nothing
    (on to nothing)
    Find the courage to get out of your head
    (get out of your head)
    You will find something if you stop looking
    for the things that aren't even there

  • World wakes
    Beneath steel skies
    Lovers stir
    Cold hands on thighs
    In bedrooms
    Behind the shades
    Some flames burn bright
    Whilst others fade

    Recollections and mementos
    Heartache's a souvenir
    Images and echoes
    Apparitions that persevere


    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    Within four chambers of mayhem
    The ghosts are out and on the loose
    And I cannot escape them


    World turns
    The sky around the clouds
    Lovers stir
    Prisoners of doubt
    On sidewalks
    Out in the pouring rain
    I die a little inside
    Whenever I hear your name


    Recollections and mementos
    Heartache's a souvenir
    Images and echoes
    Apparitions that persevere


    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    Within four chambers of mayhem
    The ghosts are out and on the loose
    And I cannot escape them

    I'm not being honest with myself
  • Pardon this confession
    But I must come clean today
    I ran for this position
    For a single thing to say

    I stand for this oration
    With gravitas and pathos
    To bring my own creation
    In a chamber of chaos

    A plan to save the nation
    I present to this congress
    A personal aspiration
    That will lead us to progress

    [Pre-Chorus]
    It’s a simple vision…

    [Chorus]
    Free hugs for everyone
    Let this country embrace us all
    Free hugs for everyone
    Cause we’re here for the long haul

    For this we would commission
    Thousands of public servants
    Their arms would feel like cushions
    They’d be bright and observant

    Unemployment and depression
    Will drop to unheard lows
    We’ll be pioneers of consolation
    We could leave all these shadows

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And it’s up to this session…

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Please don’t laugh at my obstination
    I know it’s naive
    But what do you plan to achieve ?

    I went through a daunting election
    To bring this to you
    You need it as much as I do

    It will never come to fruition
    Cause you live by the numbers
    Full of moderate ambitions
    Cradling you in your slumber

    Those No’s are an affliction
    But this parliament’s your hideout
    So, to stop your ruination
    I will hug all your brains out

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And we’ll have new elections

    [Chorus]
    Free hugs for everyone
    Let this country embrace you all
    Free hugs for everyone
    And you will hear the people's call
  • I’ve lost it all
    I’ve lost my heart

    Every step forward
    Takes me back two
    Spending a week
    Turning around in circles

    All that I see
    And all that I feel
    And all that I live
    And all that I think
    And all that I kill
    Even if I will
    There’ll always be more
    Just waiting

    The time that I keep
    For myself to shovel
    The coal that keeps me going
    Taken away and lost

    All that I see
    And all that I feel
    And all that I live
    And all that I think
    And all that I kill
    Even if I will
    There’ll always be more
    Just waiting…

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    I'm trying to swim
    But always drowning
    Filled above my head
    In this chamber with chaos

    The pain that keeps me awake
    At the times it shouldn’t
    Fills my days with stalling
    And my nights with regret

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    I'm trying to swim
    But always drowning
    Filled above my head
    Is this chamber with chaos

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    Drown it
    Hide it
    After all it’s nothing more
    Than a creation in a chamber of chaos
  • What am I feeling?
    Tell me
    What am I feeling?

    I sit in my shower and let the water fall
    My head feels heavy, I'm feeling small
    I draw a picture on the glass, a smiley face,
    this feeling is sure to pass, just like the days, this too will pass
    I see the fog rising up around me,
    the heat is burning my skin
    I get up and shut off the water, I can’t let it win

    The turmoil of a storm within,
    I grasp at straws to keep me afloat,
    It comes pouring out but there's no sound,
    My screams echo in my throat

    I stare at the ceiling as my mind is blank,
    I wonder what it is, that for this, I can thank,
    A calm and quiet sensation overcomes me,
    A feeling of letting go finds me,

    I reach my hand out and grasp for the air,
    I find myself to no longer care
    For I am not bound by the fear
    I can strive towards anything here

    What am I feeling,
    Tell me,
    What am I feeling
    My knowledge is expanding,
    I've come to an understanding
    Playing tricks on me like an alliteration
    Creation in chamber of chaos in concentration
    I have awoken once again
    But a thought lingers in my head, for how long?

    It’s dragging me down, knowing I will go down
    Maybe it’s all a visage, an oasis of my own making
    I break up a sweat as I wake from my bed
    Anger starts to take hold and I rage against all
    Words are pouring out that I do not mean
    For I’m afraid to be seen, by you

    Don’t look at me while I make a scene
    I don’t know what I want you to see
    I don’t have control over you, I cower
    I will calm down in the shower

    What am I feeling,
    Tell me,
    What am I feeling
  • Hold on, baby
    Hold on, baby
    Dig your fingers into my sides
    Hold on, sweetheart
    Hold on, darling
    We’ll outrun them one last time

    Ride
    We'll ride
    Far
    So far

    Close
    Your eyes
    Tonight
    Tonight

    Wait!

    As the dust settles
    Your words echo
    There’s stillness all around
    With my mind spinning
    I go back to the beginning
    Before our time ran out

    It’s a slow ride
    Back into the City
    It’s a nosedive
    From here to eternity
    A bloody fight
    To reclaim your broken body
    It’s a long ride
    Back into the city where we used to be alive

    It’s a slow sigh
    And it echoes through the valley
    It’s a long night
    Without your arms around me
    My battle cry
    Fades into my memory
    It’s a long ride
    Back into the city where we used to be alive

    Goodnight to
    The sun, sand and sky
    Goodnight to
    What you leave behind
    My lips are dry
    But I’ll still kiss you goodnight

    Goodnight to
    The sun, sand and sky
    Goodnight to
    What you leave behind
    My lips are dry
    But I’ll still kiss you goodnight
  • Verse 1:

    Where
    Am I
    Where is everyone
    I was flying, now I'm down on the ground
    Around me
    Only rustling trees
    No roads, no buildings, this can't be Paris

    And the pain, crawling
    The hunger, growing
    And the lack of warmth
    Maybe this path...

    Chorus 1:

    Have I already been through this clearing?
    Through the mountains, my calls are echoing
    No responses to the pleas for help I've sung
    But cold and pine-scented air filling my lungs

    Verse 2:

    It's been many nights now
    Flowers blooming already
    Whole season of sorrow
    To wake up safe and steady

    Know spots for shrooms and berry
    Near them, breathtaking scenery
    White peaks, almost inviting me
    To never leave...

    Chorus 2:

    It's by this all too familiar clearing
    And thanks to the mountains listening
    That I found the inspiration for this song
    I'm gonna sing it all spring long

    Solo

    Chorus/Bridge:

    But
    I've seen the milky way
    (Maybe I wanna stay)
    Breathed this untainted air
    (Maybe all this is fair)
    Are they sad, are they scared?
    (Maybe they just don't care)
    It is already May
    (They are glad you're away)
    When this is all over
    (This is never over)
    Who will I see in these rivers...?
  • In the dead of night, the danger comes
    Gasping for air, while the dread washes over
    Yellow eyes of death, pierce my wide-open eyes
    Death in the shadows looming over my head

    The hum of night the soundtrack,
    Moonlit path the dance floor,
    Prickling skin from the panic within,
    Traversing the house of the wolf

    Enveloped by the forest,
    That I can’t see for the trees
    Blinded by the constant fear,
    Each step feels like the last I’ll ever take

    Hot breath in my ear, I whimper in fear
    As the wolf closes in
    Amber and grey, no matter the way,
    Silence cuts across the screaming within

    In the dead of night, the danger comes
    Gasping for air, while the dread washes over
    Yellow eyes of death, pierce my wide-open eyes
    Death in the shadows, looming in my head
  • Am I trash or treasure
    Loved or discarded forever
    I have felt such isolation
    All my life


    Is this a pedestal
    Or more of a curtain call
    In swings and roundabouts
    Much too wild



    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last


    Am I lost or found
    Gone or safe and sound
    Must I dig deep down
    With bare hands

    Is this where I belong
    Or am I just strung along
    Did I make a connection
    Just one time

    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last

    Am I a diamond or just rough
    Sparkling life or tough
    Am I a diamond or just rough
    Sparkling life or tough

    Is this the last time
    To hear the bells chime
    The sun will never set
    On my song

    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last
  • (Verse 1)
    Endless mass of pink and grey
    Endless me all night and day
    Young and old, alive and dead
    It's all me, all in one head

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Verse 2)
    Echo chamber worlds across
    For new words I'm at a loss
    For it's all me, nothing new
    Like will-o-wisps, through and through

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)

    (Interlude)

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)

    (Verse 3)
    Will I ever become free
    Free from the infinite me
    Or will I be stuck in time
    Alone within the hivemind

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
  • They sucked the marrow from the giants bones
    And spat forth flame
    The blood and grime it wouldn't wash off
    All they held became stained

    This eye has seen it all before

    Mother Evergreen
    Father Oak
    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness

    Rain now
    Tears on dry lands
    Worry now
    At open wounds

    Time swings quickly, cutting
    Like a scythe

    Faithful heart
    And a fond farewell
    Give a man a cup
    And he will drown himself

    This eye has seen it all before

    Mother Evergreen
    Father Oak
    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness

    Mother Evergreen
    Father Oak
    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness
  • Find me
    Abandoned
    No undergrowth
    Seek me
    Destroyed on
    The forest floor

    Sorrow
    Seeps like sap
    This grief untapped
    No foliage to protect
    The remains of
    The branches left

    Nature's forsaken me
    Left to decompose
    Between the wilting leaves
    And moss and mold

    Burrow
    My cursed seeds
    That won't sprout leaves
    The remains of
    This last species
    Ends with me

    If a tree falls in a forest
    And no one is around to hear it
    Does it make a sound?

    Like a dead standing tree
    Hollow at my end
    Cut off from living
    The life that grows feeds from me now

  • Into dark woods you walk tonight
    No map no compass
    No stars shine in the sky
    You trudge through blindly

    I've been in those woods before my friend
    And I’ll never go back in them again

    I've been in those woods before my friend
    And I’ll never go back in them again

    Even with adjusted eyes
    You still can't find a path
    The moon provides a faint light
    And canopy shadows dance

    But you falter further
    Deeper into the darkness
    With storm clouds rolling in
    Alone in the wilderness

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown

    On a sinking ship in a tempest
    Sea and sky combined
    No light house lamps lit
    No signs of shore to find

    Rogue waves rock the boat
    Don't go down with her
    You've got to stay afloat
    Ignore the luring siren’s call

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown
  • The city is a ghost town
    I've seen nobody in weeks
    No voices from the outside
    No cars pass on the streets
    This Liminal space consumes me
    My existence less concrete
    Your presence is hardly noticed
    A fly on a screen

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather

    This citys like the wilderness
    At least under the rain
    The gutters overflowing
    Streets becoming rivers as they drain
    Are the walls becoming in tighter
    I feel more crushed everyday
    I can't stand your voice anymore
    Jam wax in my ears till it goes away

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather

    I've been breathing your air for 2 weeks straight
    And these apartment walls are closing in quick
    And there's an empty wilderness just outside the gates
    I'm gonna drown soon if I don't find a higher place

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather
    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather

  • I left the office for a week
    Nobody needs me anyway
    And made my way to the red creek
    The place where my mom used to stray

    No e-mail could find me there
    This secret I’ll keep forever
    For when I have questions to spare
    When I need some ties to sever
    There is no music in this air
    For once it was for the better

    No guilt of singing my own songs
    Around the campfire
    No fear of conversations
    That could have gone smoother
    It’s just me and this starry night
    Where light and dark are deep
    And now I can speak to myself
    Until I fall asleep

    In a place no one else can see
    Happy is the lonely ruler
    Nothing is expected of me
    I craved for this second nature

    No guilt of singing my own songs
    Around the campfire
    No fear of conversations
    That could have gone better
    It’s just me and this simple day

    I could be the perfect kind of crazy
    I could answer the riddles of my years
    Old regrets met all my future stories
    This last silence has uncovered my ears

    When I embraced this honest wind
    Flowing around my hair and skin
    I knew my senses hadn’t thinned
    They needed somewhere to break in

    It’s time to face it, a failed objective
    We’re stranded here now, our fears resurrected
    There’s no turning back
    We’re jettisoned cargo
    No, they’re not coming back
    Back tomorrow

  • Well I've got my shovel handy, what more do I need?
    Well I've got it handy
    Time to dig underneath my feet


    One might say there's two of us
    But I only spot one
    (dead bodies, dead bodies don't count)


    Gonna dig myself a grave
    Alone in the woods
    Gonna carve real deep, so no one finds the goods
    Cover and repeat (alone in the woods)
    Alone in the woods
    And should anybody else drop by
    I still won't need no alibi
    There's time still before the sunrise


    Well I've got my body ready, what more do I need?
    Well I've got it ready
    Time to bury, underneath my feet

    Don't this seem
    Like a great
    Final resting place?
    (The moss here calls your name)


    Gonna dig them a grave
    Alone in the woods
    Gonna bury them before me, and cover 'em real good
    Between the trees (alone in the woods)
    Alone in the woods
    And should anybody else drop by
    There's enough ground here for them to lie
    I'll work until the dawn arrives


    Well I'm still feeling lonely, the dead don't make for company
    Well I'm still lonely
    Time to shovel six feet deep (underneath my feet)


    Gonna dig us both a grave
    Alone in the woods (Alone in the woods)
    Two can keep a secret, if both of em are dead
    Alone in the woods
    The dead don't count as company (alone, alone)
    I've never had worse company
    Alone in the woods

  • There’s a sun bleeding through the clouds
    Leading me on
    Lighting up the marigolds
    Honeyed halcyon
    Gotta take a little breath
    Then run until there’s nothing left

    Gonna find a way through the wilderness
    Gonna find a way to the other side
    Gonna make a habit of happiness
    Gonna make this whole world mine

    Got no time for wonderin’
    Gonna make the sky my own
    It’s takin’ all I’ve got to give
    And everything I’ve known

    A thunderstorm is blowin’ in
    Pushing me back
    Beating down the daffodils
    Tracing cracks
    Gotta take a little breath
    Then run until there’s nothing left

    Gonna find a way through the wilderness
    Gonna find a way to the other side
    Gonna make a habit of happiness
    Gonna make this whole world mine

  • Guess I gotta get goin', goin' down
    To the road not taken
    Simmerin' stew is slowin' down, now
    We're nearly done bakin'
    But the melt-a-man heat ain't good for the meat, no
    Trippin' over my feet into the yonder
    A Walden Ponder

    Satellites send trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    I used to hate dirt

    Wonder if the Super Bowl still shows
    Primetime is a-watchin' that grass grow
    Crickets 'n me got a book to read
    And they think it's boring
    I'm a rainy day dude, it's true
    I got pots out for the bleedin' blue
    Takin' up thin shelter from the shadows
    Still could drive men mad

    Oh, what if they put the puzzle back together?
    Oh, what if our population comes around?
    My god, what if I'm not a factor in the future?
    Will I matter at all, in a small way?
    Does a pebble in creek ever get a say?

    Satellites or trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    I used to hate dirt

    Guess I gotta get rounded, pounded down
    To the river's own shapin'
    Guess I gotta make peace in drownin' deep out here where the coast is clear

    Satellites send trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    Till you're diggin' in the dirt

    Satellites or trails of shooting stars
    They fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    It's why they call it work
  • Follow down
    The unbeaten road
    Lookin’ for answers
    Far from home

    Wanderin’ lost
    I hear the sound
    Of the wolves calling
    Chasin’ me down

    There’s no escape
    When nothing’s ever going your way
    Broken and bound
    By everything you left in that blacktop town
    Gonna rise again
    Before the devil himself closes in
    I've got miles to mend

    Run rabbit run
    Life is loaded like a gun
    Run rabbit run
    Shoot to kill the worry, son

    Run rabbit run
    Life is loaded like a gun
    Run rabbit run
    Shoot to kill the worry, son

    No holdin’ back
    When the nightfall comes
    The shadows crawl
    Still I run

    No way out
    Trees are closin’ in
    Feel the teeth
    No one’s free from sin

    There’s no escape
    When nothing’s ever going your way
    Broken and bound
    By everything you left in that blacktop town
    Gonna rise again
    Before the devil himself closes in
    I've got miles to mend

    Run rabbit run

  • Don't you call my name
    What's done, now is what you’ve done
    There's no turning back
    Once the bullet has left the gun
    I could have made a promise
    But it's one, that we'd both regret
    Best to bury me now
    Instead of laying me to rest

    CHORUS
    I wasn’t born to this world
    I had to make it my own
    I carved out every path
    Between the blood and the bone
    And I carry all these scars
    One for each and every time
    I trusted someone enough

    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine

    VERSE
    My love is dangerous
    I’m a traitor to everyone
    Alone in the wilderness
    Where I can't even trust myself
    If I could live forever
    We could always be as one
    But my past is dragging
    Me 6 feet underground

    CHORUS
    There's no more returning
    To any home that I had
    Marked twice and dead man walking
    When I crossed and I ran
    Was it days or weeks ago?
    In the wilderness alone
    I could have been a hero
    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine

    BRIDGE 02:15
    Foot falls in the distance
    No matter what side I’m on
    Neither with good reason
    to pity what we'll stumble on
    Caught between our sides
    Running for my life....

    CHORUS
    You took your knife and used it
    It’s a choice of ride or die
    I can't trust this confusion
    Not my ears or my eyes
    Not supposed to be over
    Still running for my life
    Lost in the fog of lies

    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine
  • I wake up to a new dawn and I'm not altogether pleased
    The world I find myself in is different to how it seemed
    Everyone was telling me how I was meant to live
    What I had to do to grow, what I should be willing to give
    If I were but a caterpillar, crawling by and by
    Would you cast me out if I refused to become a butterfly?
    I'm no long lost son, I'm no long forgotten daughter
    I'm stuck as I am, lost in a valley near water

    I have no tale worth telling
    Nor have I a tail to show
    No shellder shall feast on me
    To evolve me into a slowbro

    You call me an outcast
    You treat me like I'm a joke
    I've made my home in solitude
    Forever a Slowpoke

    But what's so wrong about loving who you are?
    What you call evolution, I call straight up bizarre
    I'm glad I never grew a tail, I choose to stay as me
    You think that I won't grow up, but I'm the one who's free

    And so I left my old life, left the snickers and the japes
    I sought out the wilderness with the hillsides and the lakes
    Alone is where I'm happy and where I feel at peace
    No longer will I have to feel the harsh choke of your leash

    I have no tale worth telling
    So you treat me like I'm a joke
    No shellder shall feast on me
    Forever a Slowpoke

    I have no tale worth telling
    Nor have I a tail to show
    No shellder shall feast on me
    To evolve me into a slowbro
    You call me an outcast
    You treat me like I'm a joke
    I've made my home in solitude
    Forever a Slowpoke

    Oh it's so easy to retire
    And quit while your ahead

    Around a gengar you know not to rest

    And old men

    Has been replaced with more adult concerns
    Cause now that I'm so much older
    I know how much victory is worth
    So quit your research and come face me
    We'll battle it out one last time
    Let's settle all our unfinished business
    before the incoming end of our lives

    And old men

    Bare feet in the sand
    And we walk to my place

    “I will never go to the prom with you!”


    Rarest of them all
    Rarest of them all

    Rarest of them all

    For you

    Time to send to sleep
    Someone I've never met

    Don't you faint just yet

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    With my pocket friends
    I never walk alone

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    Here so long
    Feels like home

    Not close to being done
    Slap you back like
    A wound spring
    Come undone

    I don't need a reason
    The journey is my goal
    Every day begins
    A fighting season

    I am at the apex
    This is the song's climax

    Enjoy the show

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    With my pocket friends
    I never walk alone

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    Here so long
    Feels like home

  • I was ready to settle down
    she was always finding cause
    counter-protest in Berlin
    every other month we'd hit pause

    catching waves not meant for me
    I preferred security.
    "I want you to love me,
    but not hold me, necessarily."

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I could never capture her
    my piscine pikachu

    she just couldn't be held down
    was like balloons were on her back
    ours was a static electricity
    fixed in state was all she had

    she wrote me letters from afar
    I devoured the birdsong
    "butterflies kept in a jar
    don't flap their wings for long"

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I could never capture her
    my postal pikachu

    but despite it all
    never wanted something more
    I sold myself
    to buy the floor
    and built the house
    staked up the walls
    to give her something
    a place to call

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I didn't want to capture
    my perfect pikachu

    The ghosts are coming for you

    Welcome traveller on your way
    To earn another badge
    Stay and come pay your respects
    To spirits of the past

    Hear the lone Cubone's lament
    And think on what you've lost
    Train your Pokemon with care
    Or you will know the cost

    Where the lavenders bloom
    Beside the tomb
    Where the lavenders bloom
    The ghosts are coming for you

    And the past comes alive
    Beneath the moon
    Where the lavenders bloom
    The ghosts are coming for you

    The ghosts are coming for you
    The ghosts are coming for you
    The ghosts are coming for you

  • I knew the day would come when we'd leave this town,
    But I didn't know how much I'd miss seeing you around,
    You set off to become Kanto's number 1,
    You said I was your rival, but I was playing for fun.

    And when I beat you,
    In our first battle,
    I could see the envy in your eyes,

    And when you got to,
    Pewter City,
    Brock really cut you down to size,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    She doesn't need to try so hard,
    I'd rather fight along beside her,
    Than leave her party bruised and scarred.

    You made it through Mt. Moon,
    Don't use that Moon Stone too soon,
    Winning badges one by one,
    You evolved your Charmeleon.

    And when I saw you,
    On the SS Anne,
    So glad we got to share that cruise,

    pride got you,
    Instead of talking,
    You start a battle that you would lose,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    She doesn't need to try so hard,
    I'd rather fight along beside her,
    Than KO her Charizard.

    So the story goes,
    We made it past Victory Road,
    And look what you've become,
    You're Kanto Region's Champion.

    Your team puts up quite the fight,
    My party's strong cause I trained them right,
    I use Surf on your Charizard,
    But beating you still breaks my heart,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    How proud I am that she got so far,
    I'm going to fight along beside her,
    Two champions, we'll both be stars.
    We'll both be stars.
  • -- Lyrics by omnibushdo (rbj) and spireal --

    A twisted melody
    Eyelids growing heavier
    Hear the Perish Song
    A hymn to tie our souls together

    Evenfall
    Bask in it, there is no escape
    Curtain call
    I can help you bow for the tape

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today


    It's too late to show your might
    We steer toward the same fate
    And now I lay my nasty plot
    The shadows lie in wait

    In lack of light I persevere
    The dark is where I thrive
    My burning gaze will not be broken
    Long as the prey’s alive

    Our turn starts soon...

    I choose you

    Feel my spectral hand on your shoulder

    Meet your doom

    Vision black, soon it's all over

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today

    Destinies bond with a few notes
    Only us ever heard
    My death will prevail crystal clear
    Your existence is blurred


    In lack of soul I feel alive
    The end is where I last
    My burning gaze will not be broken
    Until I wipe your past

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today
    Our turn is up !

    3:25 (cut everything until the outro at 3:53)
  • The night the Absol came, I knew my dreams were crushed
    They say despair soon follows their tracks and their minds
    Tomorrow, the village is gonna be in a rush,
    Fearing whatever these monsters planned for our kind.

    It just had to be me, the one who couldn’t withstand,
    Because all the border’s houses were closed except mine
    I waited for my time to travel across the land;
    Looks like someone just drew the end of the line.

    And it stopped just before me...
    Why did it have to stop just before me ?

    The others would be safe in their giant cities
    They already had badges, friends and rivals
    They would keep squabbling for their pocket money
    While I’ll struggle even more for my survival.

    I stared at the Absol with the emptiest eyes,
    Hoping for a lull in this incoming storm.
    But I knew it could only witness my demise,
    A sad rebel against the strongest of norms

    I just hoped the world was ending...
    Could this whole damn world be ending ?

    The day the Absol left, the clock started to tick :
    It’s been days since I’ve warned all of the town.
    Couldn’t stand all these looks, I wanted to be quick
    To tell neighbours what was about to go down.

    Were the winds rising ? Did a beast burst with rage ?
    So many traitors and saviours to figure out
    As my heart tried to jump out of my ribcage,
    I failed to envision a perfect turnabout.

    Somehow, I bet on a few things...
    Maybe I could save a couple things ?

    Or maybe my plans would not be needed;
    Didn’t want to dread ripples crashing on the pier.
    Maybe, for once, calls should stay unheeded;
    Harbingers can't see through Totodile tears.

    I shouted “Hey dumb wolf ! Give us your best shot !
    We’ll laugh about it, if we don’t, we’ll rebuild.
    In both cases, don’t forget you’re getting caught;
    You want me disarmed, but I’ll show you I’m thrilled !”

    I hoped this Absol heard me...
    Maybe he shouldn’t have heard me...

    The day the Absol foresaw, gunshots were heard :
    An invasion started minutes after midnight.
    We were gathered in the plaza without a word
    Until they knew we could not start a fight.

    As the troops left with a red trail of flames,
    I had a thought about the omens and their cries.
    I wished so bad for Pokemons to take the blame,
    But those soldiers just had this drive in their eyes

    Absols can't twist a brain that way...
    It's our thing to twist a brain that way...

    And the news started to make sense once more
    Because I finally asked for the clues I had.
    Didn't need a messenger at my door,
    Yet I couldn't see our fate turning bad.

    Absol, your turn to flee
    Too late to forgive me
    You were the emissary
    I just couldn't be.
    Absol, your turn to flee
    Too late to forgive me
    You were the emissary
    I just couldn't be.
  • The sky is getting awfully bright
    Shouldn't it be dark at night?
    A star above has been growing larger
    Some say it brings us hope, I think it brings disaster

    So if this will be the end of me
    The death of my entire family
    The end of a hundred thousand unique species
    I only wish to have made my peace

    I hope that you remember me

    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Death comes for both old and young
    All will lie dead beneath the sun
    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Forever lost to eternity
    I hope that you remember me

    But life... uh... finds a way
    A new world will awake one day
    They'll find under earth and sea
    Maybe you'll remember me

    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Death comes for both old and young
    All will lie dead beneath the sun
    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Forever lost to eternity
    I hope that you remember me
  • Verse 1
    When I grow up, I'm gonna show everyone I'm the greatest nature lover of them all
    And that I respect all living creatures, soft or dangerous, big or small
    I want to lay down in the marsh and soak the beauty of it in, yea
    My integrity growing like an old oak tree, robust and strong

    Prechorus
    Love the world as you love yourself then you can care for all things

    Chorus
    I'm gonna make these birds my slaves
    I'm gonna make these bugs my slaves
    Though my love for them is fervent
    They'll still be my indentured servants
    I'm gonna make me these plants my slaves
    and make them work for days and days
    Until they pass out and mumble their name
    They're not going to the hospital, okay!?

    Verse 2
    People misunderstand
    My goal, my motives here
    My mom sends checks each month
    Then says I'm psychotic
    She should mind her business
    I bring fauna to the world
    Dog fights are much much worse
    Who says I'm quixotic?

    Chorus
    I'm gonna make these birds my slaves
    I'm gonna make these bugs my slaves
    Though my love for them is fervent
    They'll still be my indentured servants
    I'm gonna make me these fish my slaves
    Women and youngsters feel my rage
    Until they pass out and mumble their name
    They're not going to the hospital, okay!? OKAY!?
  • You can't read my tiny black eyes
    Under an old rag I hide
    Some people think I'm creepy as f*ck
    All I want is just to be loved

    You're unsure what I really am
    Tentacles peek from under the rag
    My vapors waft out when it's cut
    At night I must sew the rips shut

    What's under the costume, what do you suspect
    I get sad when you hit me, it breaks my whole neck
    My crayon-drawn face, droops, my head just falls down
    Horrific ghost creature with the face of a clown

    You think I appear as a freak, don't you
    A perverted reflection, of Pikachu
    Depraved revenant, a golem inside
    If you've seen my true form, you probably died

    You probably
    You probably

    Died

    My real appearance isn't safe to see -
    Do you want to come and play with me?
    Don't try and peek, I'll get upset
    Inflicting revenge on who broke my neck
    I just want to be just like you
    Hell-born phantasm, and want to look cute
    Murderous jealousy of Pikachu
    Be my bestie - I, Mimikyu
  • We were promised glory,
    Chasing star-filled dreams
    But when I first released you,
    I discovered the hard truth
    We do this for the Pokémon,
    Such wonder, big and small
    You are my life now, Cyndaquil
    Together we will do it all

    Eight ninety eight to master,
    Missing no-one to choose

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roars and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through

    Trudged through the forests for days and days,
    Bitter blizzards, ash and caves,
    Through rain, tall grass and windswept deserts,
    And surfed to paradise, so far away
    In gyms we stood our ground,
    Fought for recognition
    We learned our lessons, grew our power
    Achieved our evolution

    The League, the fame, it beckons,
    One atop the dais

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roar and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through


    Bridge:
    No way I would have made it here,
    Without you there, my friend
    In the darkest moments, you shone through
    Cyndi, you led the way…

    [Solo]

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roar and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through
  • You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be

    Caffeine, midnight
    The moonlight in the darkness
    Crimson eyes, rings that glow
    Will love at night change all we know?

    Or daytime might
    Bring lilac into the light
    Purple eyes
    Gems and psychic fight
    Will loyalty in the morning change what becomes?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Umbreon or Espeon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Spring, green and sunshine
    Do you long for endless growing, branching out
    Storms of leaves, flower perfume
    Will thriving flora make you bloom?

    Or let in chill, frost at its work
    Crisp winter air, crystal icicles
    Snowflakes descend from light blue skies
    Seas of white with turquoise ice
    Will snowing plains define your reprise?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be

    Fire in its essence
    Sparking embers
    Scorching waves
    Orange blaze
    A heat that sends a message
    Will compressed fire light your flame?

    Or sparks may fly
    Electric coursing through the sky
    Lightning strikes where it's right
    10,000 volts exchanged
    Will contained charge conduce your change?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Flareon or Jolteon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Blue pink and white, be undefined
    Softly glowing like fairy lights,
    Sparkling, dazzling gleam
    Will affection reveal your undreamt dreams?

    Or do you long for the pitter patter of rain coursing through your veins?
    Heavy waterfall, rapid river flow
    Melt into the H2O
    Will condensed vapor reveal your soul?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Sylveon, Vaporeon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Does any of it call your name?
    Do you long for change or to stay the same?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    I would never ask you to change for me (Who do you want to be?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Umbreon or Espeon or Leafeon,

    A life in lush greens
    Pleasant and comfortable
    All was well it would seem

    Whispering waterfalls
    The softest of blue
    Hopes or dreams
    Are alive for you

    Fields of flowers
    Each one in full bloom
    Every colour
    Has its own perfume


    So happy to be here
    Hand in hand with you
    I'd choose every time

    But there was no warning
    For what would come
    Moments fleeting
    We would see our last sun


    Still happy to be here

    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    Still happy to be here
    Side by side with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you


    And then there was a flash
    A rumble then a crash
    The sky turned black
    a fireball became ash

    Dust dropped like rain
    Darkness then came
    It was never the same
    Never again


    Finally happy to be here
    Endlessly with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    So happy to be here
    Heart to heart with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    if it would be my last
    if it would be my last day
    spend it with you
  • Verse 1
    I guess I just got lost
    In the passage of time
    Opening up the freezer
    I'm reminded I'm not fine

    I guess a lot has changed
    But I haven't as much
    Picture frames the only things that show me up

    I guess thing aren't the same
    I've heard more than enough
    No more aching growing pains~

    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me
    Are we so cold and bitter, devoid of simple joy?
    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore
    I'm-
    still buying dinosaur nuggets

    Verse 2
    It's in the little things
    Pop-tarts and lucky charms
    Not the most adult of choices, but I can't give them up

    Hoarding my old toys
    My precious Barbie dolls
    There's nothing now that gives me joy
    The same way that it was

    Hoarding my old joys
    Nintendo 64
    I'm done with things not being like they were before
    Things ain't like they were before


    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me

    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore
    I'm-
    still buying dinosaur nuggets

    Bridge
    It's no cause for concern
    I'm not quite peter pan
    Simply overwhelmed by nostalgia
    A want to go back way back then
    It's just a simple shape, not bland in anyway
    Comforting dinosaurs to eat away the pain
    I haven't changed

    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me
    Are we so cold and bitter, devoid of simple joy?
    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore

  • When I was a kid I used to play dinosaur
    I would stomp in the mud and thrash my little arms
    Until I read one book that put it in perspective
    That would give my reptile-loving life direction
    Fact! There's money to be made
    Fact! Treasures in heaven
    Fact! My bones aren't replicas
    Grown in nine months
    Fact! What were they digging for
    Fact! Out in mormon country?
    Fact! What are you digging for?
    The same thing as me

    I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb
    I want recognition, I want the distinction
    I do care, I do care
    I want recognition for being an expert on extinction

    I'm not smarter than you I've just done my research
    Why do you think I wear such a clever t-shirt?
    If we can't agree dreams of dinosaurs lead to sin
    can we just agree history books detail fiction?
    Fact! Leviathans explained
    Fact! Mermaids and manatees
    Fact! Fake skeletons and

    In the end, what can you do?
    Real or staged they're gone
    As am I, as are you

    Leaves nothing but dust
    And time undone

    (Don't stare into the sun)

    What was above
    Comes crashing down
    With a roar
    Of molten seas to drown

    Down from the skies
    Fell the sun
    From the skies
    Fell the sun

    From the skies
    Falls the sun
  • The Origin of Birds

    The memory is stubborn
    Familiar motions repeat
    Like the chicken in the egg
    Still grows claws and teeth

    Oh the muscle memory
    And the origin of birds
    I take flight every evening
    Until the dawn does emerge

    Gerhard scribbled furiously
    His paper almost torn by the pen
    His tired eyes seeing only beak
    Claw tooth and wing
    The image was clear now
    The science was all wrong
    All fossil evidence mislead us
    You could see feathers on the thigh of a baby dove

    The truth was inescapable
    All the evidence did persist
    There'd be no great revelation
    No deeply buried missing link

    And one day we'll find
    The entirety of our lifes
    Burnt down to ashes
    And cast into the wind

    Gerhard stood anxiously
    Outside the publishers door
    In his hand the manuscript
    Sweat stained the decades work
    He knocked twice and time began to pause
    Every second felt an hour
    Every two a day
    But eventually the door swung open and he was beckoned in
    They looked over his notes searching for any obvious mistakes
    Looking at him with disdain an outsider intruding on a sacred place
    But gerhards work was impeccable
    And his evidence complete
    There could be no doubt about his hypothesis
    Even with the conclusions it reached
    The origin of birds was not
    With the great predators of old
    But instead they where sisters
    At least that's what gerhard told
  • Never mind what those fossils are teaching you in school
    I'll tell you the best way to learn
    It's paleontology 101
    Go back in time and get your groove back on
    Put on a show for those future exhibits
    And pay no mind to the temporal limits

    Herbivores and carnivores
    Together in the pit
    The theropods are break dancing
    Allosaurus are doing the splits
    The dilplodocus is headbanging
    Out there in the swamp
    It's Jurassic fantastic
    If you stomp,
    If you stomp

    Stomp until you can't no more
    In the land of time before
    For those about to rock'n'rawr
    We salute you

    Every velociraptor in the house say [Insert Conparkysaurus noises]
    Every stegosaurus in the house say [Insert Conparkysaurus noises]
    Every pterodactyl in the house roar
    Let's roar, lets roar, lets roar
    Lets roll, lets roll, lets roll
    Until a rock says we can't roll no more, roll no more

    [solo]

    Herbivores and carnivores

    he's a gargoyle

    this guy's a dinosaur
    yeah you heard what I said
    his jacket's all beat up
    like he wears it to bed
    he's got at least a decade
    on the girl he's been kissing
    he'll probably take her home
    and fuck you're not even listening

    and now she's
    dino-sore, cause he loved her and left her
    dino-sore, but what could she expect
    she's just another conquest
    a notch in his belt
    and when she tells her friends
    they'll just fuckin want him as well

    this guy's a dino
    he's cold-blooded he's ruthless
    chewed up, spit out
    onto the next, miss
    tyrannosaurus on all fours
    absolute killer
    don't think about it too hard
    buddy there's just no winning

  • You're laying out in front of me
    I come rising up, in ecstasy
    And ooh, how i love to see you scream
    It's extreme, but it's my dream, so please -
    You are my Tokyo, and i will be your Godzilla

    When I come you seem so terrified
    My words are lingering with fire
    When we're together, it's so loud
    Fever exploding, mushroom clouds 


    Obsessed by passionate desire
    Electrified, tied in high tension wire
    And how my heart, it wants you so
    Hardcore blooded, craving Tokyo

    You are my Tokyo, and I will be your god
    I'll set your world aglow
    For i'll always be your Godzilla

    I find you when I’m feeling brash
    Taking pleasure in our blinding flash
    Don't refuse me
    Don't say I’m too much
    Tokyo, you'll always be my crush
  • This
    Should never have been
    A freak event
    None could foresee
    Now the waves (oh the waves)
    Depart the sea (depart the sea)
    So it begins

    Thrown
    Up and away
    Tiny rocks
    Almost aflame
    Now the heat (oh the heat)
    Starts its reign (rains and rains)
    As wildfires rage

    And it all obscures the sun (Chills the Earth)

    Forests
    That once stood tall
    Now crumble
    Crying as they fall
    And the land (oh the land)
    Slips and slides (slips and slides)
    It can’t withstand

    How it all obscures the sun (Chills the Earth)
    And how

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

    Light
    Turns to dark
    As hearts
    Beat their last
    Now the Earth (oh the Earth)
    As it had been (what could have been?)
    Is no more

    How it all obscured the sun
    How it all chilled the Earth
    How it clipped all of their wings
    And it ground their bones to dirt
    Will they be remembered?

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

    Larger than Everest
    More violent than bombs
    Hotter than Hades
    Here I come

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

  • Once there was the littlest tyrannosaur
    A dreamer, a schemer, a wisher, too
    The constellations they called to him
    And this dancer he answered their light

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

    Every other being, scaled and feathered
    Would gather to chatter about their friend
    Our T-rex, nonplussed, would only ignore them
    And stare at the arc of the darkness above

    He gathered bone and ore and rock and tar
    Built a vessel to nestle him in heaven
    Waved goodbye as a crowd looked on in awe
    Our dinosaur stepped aboard for his journey

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

    As he sped through the heated atmosphere
    His jaw dropped in awe at the sight
    Of an asteroid soaring fearsome past
    To annihilate the fate of all below

    Tiny arms had grabbed for something more
    Now floating far amid the stars
    The loneliest little tyrannosaur
    The last of a past lost to fate

    Never let your dreams be dreams
    Never stand too long in just one place
    You too can be a dinonaut
    Hurtling along through outerspace

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky
  • I'm the baddest theropod from this side of the cretaceous
    All that see me run and hide
    All my equals meet me and suddenly become sequacious
    They'll follow me if they want to survive

    I'll rip out your throat
    I'll feast on your spleen
    I'll steal you last breath
    And I'll strip your bones clean

    But I wish I didn't live this way
    I hunt and kill to eat, I wish that I had a say
    I hated all of the death, since it began
    I just want vegetables, I wish I could go vegan

    Don't believe all that I said, it was just a prank bro
    I live for the chaos
    The sharpest teeth and claws are on my bank roll
    Roaming round the forest

    We'll rip out your throat
    We'll feast on your spleen
    We'll steal you last breath
    And we'll strip your bones clean

    But we wish we didn't live this way
    We hunt and kill to eat, we wish that we had a say
    We hated all of the death, since it began
    We just want vegetables, we wish we could go vegan

    As I hunt and kill my prey,
    I wish it was a veggie burger with guacamole
    And when I taste their blood
    I wish it was a nice crisp salad

    Why do I have to live this way
    I hunt and kill to eat, but don't I deserve a say
    I hated all of the death, since it began
    I'm just going to eat vegetables, that's it, I'm going vegan

    Swing batter batter batter Meteor strike
    Hit the Yucatan Like Iron Mike
    Still feeling the after shocks
    Still digging out from under those rocks
    Seems like they went extinct
    But if you just stop and think
    Everywhere you see the same
    Old fossils control the game
    if you just stop and think
    Will they ever go extinct?

    Chorus
    Dinosaur bones foreign soil
    feast and famine, peace, turmoil
    to the victors go the spoils
    How much war is just gold and oil?

    Scientists draw red lines
    Government pocket's lined
    CEOs don't mind the fines
    Average Joe preoccupied
    Seems like we'll go extinct
    But if you just stop and think
    It ain't a mystery who or why they done it
    A bunch of cold blooded old fossils still run it
    if you just stop and think
    Will they ever go extinct?

    Chorus
    Dinosaur bones foreign soil
    feast and famine, peace, turmoil
    to the victors go the spoils

  • (Bro, you have to calm down about dinosaurs. This is an intervention. They've been dead for like, what, millions of years? Can't you just go out or play some Nintendo with us?)
    Hell no!


    Many are obsessed with dinosaurs in preschool
    Some don't grow out of it, I'm one of those fools
    My favourite species are anywhere they fit
    Glasses, pillows, tote bags and ties, you name it
    (Hey, have I ever show you my diplodocus teapot, by the way?)

    On every forum I'm a woman on a mission
    Wrote thousands of posts just to share my passion
    Some tried to shut me down, but I'm always ready
    Just spent my whole night praising Jurassic Park 3

    (Come on, the spinosaurus was pretty badass! And also, it's arguably the best version of Dr Grant...
    Wow, ok, I'm getting a little carried away, but you know you can...)


    Ask me about dinosaurs, you can't put me on the spot
    They're the best creatures this Earth have brought
    If only they had the fortune to carry on
    They were the kings of a time long gone


    I'm that dino nerd, blowing the minds I gather
    When they hear my trivia, I see this childlike wonder
    You can call me an armchair archeologist,
    But there isn't one piece of research I have missed
    (They just found a massive fossil under a café in Austria!)

    The carnotaurus is the top tier in my heart
    It was fast, it had horns and its neck's a work of art
    They say he could make the biggest eat the ground
    T-rexes wished they had its power pound-by-pound


    (I mean, T-rexes are everybody's favourite, but they're not my favourite. You know, like, they were super limited by their size?
    Honestly, like, they had these itty-bitty-bitty arms, and they had these massive heads and massive bodies, and, like, they couldn't outrun most of the little dinosaurs.
    And like, the carnotaurus weren't very much better because their arms were just as small, but now if you look at the velociraptor, that's something different.
    They were small, and super fast, and uh, sharp teeth, but did you know they had feathers?
    Also, the pterodactyl actually had fur instead of feathers, so they were kind of like furry and stuff, but like, pterydactyls were amazing.
    Do you remember Petrie from The Land Before Time? Now that is a movie that's worth watching, honestly...)


    So you can ask me about dinosaurs
    You can ask me about dinosaurs


    Sorry if I took your time, you must be busy
    And you might think my obsession is unhealthy
    But it's a human thing, so what about you?
    What makes you excited? Is it dinosaurs too?

  • The beating of the forest,
    Rhythm of our lives,
    Fireflies dazzled my eyes,
    As I danced with you tonight


    Roar, unbridled passion
    As I gaze into your eyes


    They called us Salsasaurus,
    Took my claws and hung on for dear life,
    Snouts together, trampled heather
    The dance of love, all right


    The beating of the forest,
    Rhythm of our lives,
    Fireflies dazzled my eyes,
    As I danced with you tonight


    Fire rages, in and out
    Acrid fumes, ash all about
    In meteor euphoria
    We begin to suffocate


    Our eyes meet one last time,
    To find our burning flame
    The cosmos might have sent our end,
    But I love you all the same


    A million moments in my mind,
    Flash like sunlight in my eyes
    Rhythm of enchanted life,
    The soundtrack of demise


    My heartbeat
    It’s fading
    Our lives
    Ebbing away
    The rhythm
    It’s dying
    Our happy lives
    Gone

    Awaiting a spark to start the flames
    Like a flower in march
    Engorged buds bulging veins

    They come to watch
    As the petrol drips down my face
    Unaware they are
    All just fuel for the blaze

    but be reborn in the flames
    Emerging from the ashes

    Or the licks of searing pain
    I have become separate

    It’s my life and, I just can’t wait
    It’s time for me to leave

    Just putting miles between here and there

  • The dawn's rays shining clear and bright
    I guess we survived another night

    The days that pass seem dull and grey
    The cameras always lie
    Fading with every breath we barely take
    As we don a vibrant face

    Minds held like glass, clutched in shaking hands
    Riding out the waves of outside seeping in
    Candles in our souls that fail to keep the flame
    Once and once again, we barely remember our names

    The nights seem brighter than the days
    When I'm asleep I don't see the world slip away
    What's the point in a brave face?
    No one can see it anyway

    I'm off to new lands
    And I'm leaving my old life behind me

    My ship's setting sail
    and even if I fail
    I'm looking forward to not looking back anymore

    For me this journey means more than traversing land
    Glimmering Gold
    One foot out the door and stepping on a foreign shore
    Glimmering Gold

    Sorrow won't follow me here
    For the path that I travel I've already cleared
    And while it's no yellow brick road
    It's the trail that I blazed and I paved it in gold

    Thanks for the memories
    Old friends and enemies
    We've all taught each other and together we've grown

    Progress isn't painless
    I'm so blessed to say this
    Last year was the last year that I'll live in fear

    The dreams I chase outweigh all the mistakes Ive made
    Glimmering Gold
    The progress that I can't make I will take by force
    Glimmering Gold

    Sorrow won't follow me here
    For the path that I travel I've already cleared
    And while it's no yellow brick road
    It's the trail that I blazed and I paved it in gold

    Sorrow won't follow me here
    For the path that I travel I've already cleared
    And while it's no yellow brick road
    It's the trail that I blazed and I paved it in gold
  • Endless celestial construction
    Requires near-constant destruction
    We need materials to function
    So rip apart the planets

    Endless expansion will prevent pain
    Millions of miles of steel will reign
    Millenia have passed, nothing remains
    Of the system that began it

    So here I am
    Looking upon
    The Jupiter Room

    One hundred thousand miles of void
    Where the gas giant was destroyed
    And in its place, just empty space

    Our massive thunder god protector
    Comet and meteor deflector
    Was disassembled by projectors
    Of robot arms and Dyson spheres

    Moon and sunlight are but history
    Black and grey are all that we can see
    The ending of it is sophistry
    There will be endless wires and gears

    So here I am
    Looking upon
    The Jupiter Room

    One hundred thousand miles of void
    Where the gas giant was destroyed
    And in its place, just empty space

    Tear
    Apart
    The stars

    Tear
    Apart
    The stars

    So here I am
    Looking upon
    The Jupiter Room

    One hundred thousand miles of void
    Where the gas giant was destroyed
    And in its place, just empty space

  • Tell me, how would it feel to take control ?
    Will they scream before your fall?

    You woke up early
    Praying for the sun to rise seems petty
    Hey look, it’s funny
    Everything blurs into normality
    This line in the sand
    Its grand purpose as it guided your hand
    Now it feels too close
    You better gear up to push some dominoes

    It’s the last “Help me !”
    It’s the first “Fuck you !”
    It’s the last “Help me !”
    It’s the first “Fuck you !”
    It’s the friends mourning in secret

    Your mind is weary, you just lost the first bout
    Excuses are ready, but the words won’t come out
    It feels like a last breath because it is one
    Welcome to your first death, you’re here for the long run

    It’s time for mistakes
    Be ready for many years of sweepstakes
    You won’t win them all
    So don’t strive to be just a fly on the wall
    Our world, it’s all grey
    Colors are devils asking for their pay
    All those lips are sealed
    This forgiveness is not yours to yield

    It’s the last “Beware !”
    It’s the first “Explain !”
    It’s the last “Beware !”
    It’s the first “Explain !”
    It’s the jokes getting more serious

    Your mind is bitter, no point in counting rounds
    No lights and no glitter, you hate to know your bounds
    Still feels like a last breath ? Well, you saw it coming
    Welcome to your first death, you're back to the living

    Don’t wait for the second one
    Don’t wait for the second one
    Nothing is said and done
    Innocence and delusion
    Innocence and delusion
    They're more than contusions
    Don’t look at what you have lost
    Don’t look at what you have lost
    Keeping can have a cost
    Now that you’re only a soul
    Now that you’re only a soul
    Just come out of your hole
    Just come out of your hole
  • The world is spinning
    is spinning around
    But take the time to look
    keep your feet on the ground

    Take things slow it takes time to begin
    So many twists so many turns
    Caught up in the permutations
    back to the start
    You're pulled in
    You're pulled in
    pulled in
    pulled in

    Sparks fly but you won't watch it burn
    Keep on going in closer with no return

    Take things slow it takes time to begin
    So many twists so many turns
    Caught up in the permutations
    Can't get back to the start
    Sparks fly but you won't watch it burn
    Sparks fly but you won't watch it burn
  • It tastes like burning
    Why was I programmed to feel pain
    Guatemalan insanity
    Hot wax helped me hallucinate
    A coyote spoke to me
    He advised me to find my soulmate
    Sounded like Johnny Cash
    It must have been something I ate

    Power plant profession
    In the bath when a chair cracks my head
    Fought the heavyweight champion
    They cried stop stop he's already dead
    Shes got a pink Chanel suit
    I prefer the pearls and the green dress
    She's hot like a tire fire
    Her blue hair makes my face red

    A treehouse of horror
    I bought a big old Canyonero
    I don't love thy neighbor
    Spend most my nights down at Moe's
    I got a nuclear family
    A son who says damn, ass, and Hell no
    Not too bright so I get scared
    But don't you dare call me yellow
  • The moon is hidden, darkened clouds
    Wholly
    Consumed, forbidden shrouds

    Shadows flow, the end is draws near
    Old ghosts slowly appear

    Slowly
    Caught breaths doom those alive
    Lonely
    Thought death would soon arrive

    Energy , it just disspates
    Lost friends surely met their fates

    It looms out evermore, here comes eternity
    Just tombs to answer for, undone, will never be
    Echoes in the distance, light going into black
    Egos fading from existence, life souls won't hold intact

    Energy , it just disspates
    Lost friends surely met their fates
    Delayed perpetually , waiting for infinity
    Our fate collectively unprayed divinity
    A new holy nirvana, descend to see hope be defunct
    To slowly ever wander, entering oblivion
  • I am the moss
    You are the tree
    Together we are free
    There is no such thing as loss
    Creation knows no bounds
    For I am the moss on your tree.

    The thunder and rain came
    But the shelter will remain
    A Fire and warmth
    That no one can tame
    I am the moss
    You are the tree

    Body and Soul
    You made me glow
    So into the forests I will go
    Mind and Might
    Your roots will never grow old

    The roots grow deep
    The water flows
    The Forest is boundless
    So come and explore

    Body and Soul
    You made me glow
    So into the forests I will go
    Mind and Might
    Your roots will never grow old

    The Forest lives on
    Through your soul
    So rest in peace
    Your work is done

    Body and Soul
    You made me glow
    So into the forests I will go
    Mind and Might
    Your roots will never grow old
  • I wish that I could tell you
    That this world is beautiful and pure
    And while parts of it will be
    There will still be trials to endure
    Of this you can be sure

    Your life will have some hardships, just like everybody's does
    Sometimes things will fall apart, but don't forget to love
    And when you're feeling broken, I'll help fix what has gone wrong
    I swear I'll show you hope before I'm gone

    Don't lose hope
    Don't lose hope

    Never get complacent and never fall behind
    Seize every opportunity, don't dare let them pass by
    The things you will accomplish can never be undone
    I swear I'll show you hope before I'm gone

    Don't lose hope
    Don't lose hope
    Before I'm gone
  • It doesn't take a view
    from far up above to see
    all that needs to be done
    Truth and hope take flight
    From thoughtful tongues

    Do you know the secret
    language of the birds
    And do you know
    The magic within
    Those words

    Wishes can fall from the
    sky onto those who dare
    look up from down below
    We're oracles
    Through which destiny does flow

    Fate is a feathered wing with a span three fold
    Spiralling on through the breeze
    A kindness repaid
    With a song sung out from the trees

    Do you know the secret language of
    The birds
    And do you know
    The magic within
    Those words

    One for sorrow
    Two for joy
    Three for a girl
    And four for a boy

    Five for silver
    And six is for gold
    And seven is for the secrets
    That they hold

    For the secrets that
    they never told

    Sunlight shines from the
    past brightens up today
    How promising tomorrow could be
    Open the songbirds cage
    And throw away the key

    Blue skies and clear eyes,
    heads and hearts, voice and mind
    Where the music is strong
    Deep down you know
    the sun never sets upon a song
  • You set out on your own
    But you couldn't stand the weather
    Now you're knocking at my door
    Begging me for shelter

    Ooooh
    you saw the fire light
    Ooooh
    you know it's warm inside

    You coulda had it all
    but I wasn't enough
    You walked away
    just to try your luck

    Ooooh
    it runs cold sometimes
    Ooooh
    You'll be cold tonight

    CHORUS:
    There's a Storm coming
    A storm coming
    Better buckle down
    Cause you cant out run it
    There's a storm Coming
    a storm Coming
    Tonight

    3 years together
    put my mind on a white dress
    I bought all your lies
    and everything you promised

    Ooooh
    You made that bed
    Ooooh
    Best try to get some rest

    REPEAT CHORUS X 2

    Did you find what you were missing?
    That hollow piece that I could never fill in?
    Well I finally found mine.
    And I can forgive and I can forget
    But I'm doing neither tonight

    REPEAT CHORUS X 2
  • You and me on this mattress is
    The last moment you're clearly mine
    Tomorrow is the day things change

    This fighting we've signed up for
    I don't wanna go to war
    A series of catastrophes hoping for a victory
    Where we can't be us

    The dormitory's aglow
    With nightmares that have come to show
    I'd hold you in my arms if we were closer

    Instead I'll stare at your bed
    Wishing, praying that things were different
    I covet the day "don't ask, don't tell" is behind us

    On these paper-thin mattresses
    There's no sleep, there's no end in sight
    The ghosts we've left behind keep watch

    This fighting we've signed up for
    Hopeless like never before
    A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
    But not one for us

    Love, I would have called us love
    With nothing fair in this love or war
    But when's the world ever been fair to two women?

    Wish we didn't have to pretend
    Waiting for our service to end
    Do we not have the right to love each other?

    On these paper-thin mattresses
    There's just pain and the stench of death
    The trauma of our warfare keeps close

    This fighting we've signed up for
    Hopeless like never before
    A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
    But not one for us

    The thanks we get are just pretty words wrapped in ugly intention
    "Live how you want to" but don't you dare to show or tell
    Who I love is not a lifestyle pay fucking attention
    This in return for giving up my sanity and health

    I've no love for defending this country, only for financial securiy
    I didn't get out of war to become another casualty
    They’re shooting us fucking dead, out on the street
    Don’t you dare glare at me you ain't seen what I've seen

    (Who do you think you are)
    If you want to thank me
    (Trying to say who I can't love)
    treat us with decency
    (I think it's time you fuck off)
    Let me hold hands with the other half of me
    (Unless you wanna meet your god)

    And otherwise you can fuck off
    Your arms are down, I'm stirring up the pot
    You’re not allowed any other thoughts
    GET FUCKING LOST

  • As the dawn unveils the golden day
    As the tide does hold the ocean sway
    Though we may part
    Soon we will meet again

    Sigh not
    This is not the end

    Glory to sun
    Glory to moon
    Glory to stars
    Glory to you
    Glory to all

    One day you may fall

    One day you may crawl

    The night may blind you

    The knife may find you

    A blight befall your crown

    A knight leave you unbound

    Too far may you fall down

    Arise

    Arise and find the northern star
    Rise and find your heart
    Rise
    Find me in the heather
    Find me in the dew
    Find me

    Rise
  • (Verse)
    The wound is wide open just walk through the door
    Track in salt out of spite or perhaps you're just bored
    There's a crack in the window from the last bottle thrown
    We blame it on the drink but we know its homegrown

    (Verse)
    So let's bury the squandered dreams, all the futures we've lost at sea
    Drown our worries of our yesterdays and sink salvation’s key
    A pair of snakes engulf each other neither willing to release
    A dance we wrote ourselves to bring us to our very knees

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground

    (Verse)
    I wrote a list of every fond memory of you left
    It was empty like your echoes, a barren page bereft
    I'll see you at your funeral a surprise uninvited guest
    Maybe then we’ll have an ending, our feud finally laid to rest

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground

    (Bridge)
    There’s no moving on or up from here, my dear
    Se we'll drag each other down to hell watch the highlights
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground
  • A million lives shine bright below, I’m shivering
    Hazy, bitter breeze, won’t wick away my teary streams
    My helplessness, bleeding into my sanity
    I’ve two feet dangling over the steps, so far below

    Carrying all this weight with me
    I’ll shed it all once I fly free

    There’s no one to help me, my hands keep shaking,
    I must've been forsaken
    You deny it but where's your proof
    I won’t humour you from the edge of this roof
    Won’t get off this ledge until I finally rest
    Mind made up, I’m following through
    Can't talk me down, I won't listen to you
    Just deal with the inconvenient truth

    Let me off this roof,
    Completely bereft of ideal or excuse
    I won’t soldier on for you,
    This show we play, this pointless ruse
    These tasteless stones I cannot swallow
    Let me down this blessed bottle
    There's only meaning once I've consumed
    When the world slips by inside my hollow

    Carrying all this weight with me
    I’ll shed it all once I fly free

    There’s no one to help me, my hands keep shaking,
    I must've been forsaken
    You deny it but where's your proof
    I won’t humour you from the edge of this roof
    Won’t get off this ledge until I finally rest
    Mind made up, I’m following through
    Can't talk me down, I won't listen to you
    Just deal with the inconvenient truth

    There is no reforming
    The hopeless the damned
    Must I spell it out for you?
    I don't want to act now
    To live or to think thoughts
    Just one want: to fly off this roof

    You’re so incorrigible, always fighting against fate
    Don't come close I'll jump off this roof, and end this sorry tale
    My life never had meaning, too empty to seize one
    Let me waste away on this roof

    Engulfed in despair, as I fall through the air,
    I need to die with the pain
  • Chasing my tomorrows

    Every time I sigh the world falls down
    Gotta pick up the pieces somehow
    The sky so high becomes my crown

    Every time I cry the clouds could drown
    Gotta dive down deep for answers now
    Chasing my tomorrows around

    Part the waves
    I will fall right in
    Sink or be saved
    Can I even win?

    Don’t understand
    But I need to go
    Where will I land
    How will I ever know

    Running straight on
    Road serpentine
    The journey long
    And solely mine

    I know my path
    And where I've been
    With one last gasp
    I'll reach the end

    Every time I sigh the world falls down
    Gotta pick up the pieces somehow
    The sky so high becomes my crown

    Every time I cry the clouds could drown
    Gotta dive down deep for answers now
    Chasing my tomorrows around
  • I wish I wasn't here
    The visions aren't clear
    Let down by machines
    And their disturbing screens
    I’ve gotta…

    …breathe…
    …breathe…

    Delusions make me paranoid
    I’ve gotta get past the void
    For conditions to settle, my consciousness too
    For my mind to wander back through

    The gravity pulls me back
    Thoughts swells like an ocean
    Cresting at the edge
    Path still unopened

    The world is a safe place
    And I'm okay. I'm alive today
    I'll change my perspective
    Keep my doubts away

    Part of the journey, part of the journey [I’ll find a way to the destination]
    Part of the journey, part of the journey
    Part of the journey, part of the journey [I’ll find a way to the destination]
    Part of the journey, part of the journey

    I wish I wasn't here
    I wish I wasn't here
    I’ll face my fears
    I’ll face my fears
  • I sense her presence as she whispers in my ear
    My legs are becoming numb as I succumb to the fear
    Her voice so sweet but with a devilish undertone
    The rest is silence as she leaves me on my own

    Who is she, to make me feel this way
    Will she leave when the night becomes day
    Do I run or do I choose to stay
    Will I stay strong or will I fade away

    You haunt me while I'm alone
    Your hands cold as stone
    But a fire in your eyes
    Makes me fear the sunrise

    When the morning comes my eyes open to see
    An empty bed, an empty room, an empty me
    She could be my poison, she could be my cure
    I need to stop but all my thoughts are filled with her

    I want to see her again tonight
    But thinking of her makes my chest tight
    Should I welcome her or should I take flight
    Will I do what's wrong or what is right

    I will haunt you when you're alone
    My hands will wake you from the stone
    But the fire burns in my eyes
    Will I make you fear the sunrise

    How long do we have to play this little game
    I treat you like a monster but you treat me the same
    Maybe I should end this, cut it off right there
    Sometimes you're my dream girl, sometimes you're my nightmare

    Don't haunt me while I'm alone
    Our hands no longer cold as stone
    Why hide the fire in our eyes
    Together we face the sunrise
  • What was the plan that my mind had conveyed?
    Blurry walls, and floors like an arcade
    Buzzing neon lights, in my ears and in my sights
    Hallways and staircases, never-ending heights

    I walked for miles and I never left the room
    Crazy patterns, that colored up my tomb
    What is the meaning, and what can I be gleaning?
    What is the message my brain is screaming?

    Hyalotype projections in my head
    Lead by wires patterned like spider webs
    Littering the path with crumbs of dread
    Unraveling the riddle of the silver thread

    My bones feel hollow as I explore this place
    Darkened paths leading to liminal space
    Starting to feel a sense of home and belonging
    Voice of my shadow, beckoning, calling

    Hyalotype projections in my head
    Lead by wires patterned like spider webs
    Littering the path with crumbs of dread
    Unraveling the riddle of the silver thread
  • Windows down in this gentle war
    Let the fever dream run it's course
    Dripping sweat cools the insurgent core
    A hundred hands and eyes, and a hundred more

    Let the night take you in
    Let the dark take you down
    Let it fill all that is hollow
    Adrenaline kill the sorrow

    Let the night take you under

    Furious heart beats just like a drum
    Wishing with crooked hope, succumbed
    Quick silver stare, words like liquid chrome
    Safety off, there are no seat belts upon this throne

    For the thrill of bruises and blurs
    For the heat of engines that growl and purr
    Let the night take you under

    Like a bullet straight on it's trajectory
    Don't worry it's all muscle memory
    The rush and heat of feeling alive
    Abandon and revelation at a hundred and five

    Let the night take you in
    Let the dark take you down
    Let it fill all that is hollow
    Adrenaline kill the sorrow

    Let the night...
  • Sun so hot above
    I'm half scared my shoes will melt
    I don't trust no one but the 6 shooter on my belt
    The sheriff's out to get me
    Gunna' run me outta' town
    He said
    "You best be gone by the time the sun goes down"
    But I don't frighten easy
    And I'm not scared of him
    If he wants a shoot out
    There's no way that he'll win
    There's money here to gain
    But I'll have to keep my wits
    Here I'll make my fortune and then I'll call it quits

    Then they won't see me again

    Just one job
    Just one hit
    Take it all then I can be done with this
    One more rob
    My last one
    One big score and then my thieving days are done

    Stride in through the doors
    Wiping my boots clean
    Make my way to the front of the hall
    It's not yet time to make a scene
    It's nice and empty
    Here in the shade
    Just a bored teller
    Sitting with a shotgun 5 yards away
    I ask, all polite
    For a withdrawal to be made
    He says of course but lunges across
    Playing a dead man's game
    And the six shooter starts barking out
    Putting holes in the poor man's brain
    Gotta move fast
    Gotta act now
    Grab the money, get out while I can

    Then they won't see me again

    Just one job
    Just one hit
    Take it all then I can be done with this
    One more rob
    My last one
    One big score and then my thieving days are done

    "I thought I said to you - you better leave this town?"
    "I've saddled up my horse sheriff, you just have to let me flee"
    "Your escape seemed a little too easy..."
    "And I thank you for your help, now here's the cash
    Half for you and half for me"

    One more job
    One more hit
    I took it all but I can't be done with this
    One more rob
    It's too fun
    I know for sure my thieving days are never done
    One more job
    One more hit
    I took it all but I can't be done with this
    One more rob
    It's too fun
    I know for sure that my thieving days are never done
  • VERSE
    A starless night
    Shines no light on the thoughts of past
    A quiet rain
    Pouring through a drain in my head

    Let the rushing streams
    Suppress my dreams forever
    So I float to the top
    Will it stop, the pain

    CHORUS
    Let rays of sun impale me
    What burns will save me
    I feel hope erasing doubt
    As I black out

    The darkness swallows me whole
    A battle for my immortal soul
    I will not stay here submerged
    to emerge - crave to purge the urge

    [SAX SOLO]

    VERSE
    A cleansing dawn
    I am drawn from inner sanctum
    Incandescent fire
    My soul's fluorescent, brighter

    CHORUS
    Let the sunshine come and spike me
    healing walls of heat strike me
    Confidence removing fear
    it's becoming crystal clear

    Climbing out the lightless hole
    Struggling for my eternal soul
    In me light and dark converge
    find the courage to purge the urge

    VERSE
    And it all comes down to me
    Floods drowning out the screams
    I swim to the top to breathe
    Bringing me through the choppy sea

    [SAX SOLO]

    CHORUS
    Let the sunlight come and heal me
    Open skies, you see the real me
    Bravely beat down despair
    The world has heard my prayer

    Take back all that they stole
    Reclaim my everlasting soul
    Although our paths diverged
    strength surged to purge the urge
  • Hot like pyroclastic flow
    In the sky the dark winds blow
    her cinders ignite the night
    Swirling sparks take wild flight
    Cast away the shackles
    Faith is like a jackal
    In my eyes a fire rages
    strip the book of all its pages

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red

    He who casts the first stone
    Will always end up alone
    Glowing embers turn to flames
    Our world will never be the same
    Raise your banner, make your stand
    Hold the fire in your hand
    Burn away the fear that was
    Deal out justice just because

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red

    Dark wings fill the sunset sky
    Whirling shadows soaring high
    A flash prismatic, ashes fall
    In our heart we hear the call

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
  • Let’s go to the ice rink together
    We’re gonna race and dance for hours
    Here, everyone falters for a while
    Here, no soul falls without a smile

    Come on, run with me to the town square
    Say bye to your doubts and your bugbears
    You’ll slide and turn this night to gold
    You’ll shout and forget about the cold
    (Let’s run !)

    We can slow down if you want, or call it a day
    Tonight, I trust you, it’s your time to lead the way

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor

    Let’s go to the ice rink together
    Bring your coat, leave the rest behind
    I want to see the wind in your hair
    If you slip I promise I'll be there

    Be the one to make my heart race
    This is our moment to escape
    We'll carve as much as we design
    Tonight we live for a thousand lines
    (Let’s skate!)

    And when we're done being artists on the ice canvas
    We'll hang up our skates and cherish what enchants us

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor
    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor

    I've felt that this whole time
    And now you know
    How about we catch up
    Among the snow?

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor
  • (Verse 1: Northern Florida)
    Christmastime is now upon us, it's our ever yearly promise
    Hear Bing Crosby croonin' on the radio
    But for all the men and missus, they won't have much white for Christmas
    For the summer grass supplants the winter snow

    Waiting in the fields so grassy, just outside ol' Tallahassee
    Waiting for my baby, layin' in the sun
    Playin' cornhole and some horseshoes, grillin' burgers and some more too
    For a yuletide grill out great for everyone

    Now I'm sittin' with my lady, bein' served biscuits and gravy
    Momma cooks us some chicken fried paradise
    A warm southern country dinner, while we're blarin' Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Don't think anything else could ever suffice

    (Verse 2: Central Florida)
    Down to Tampa we've been goin', and it really isn't snowin'
    But that doesn't mean that we should be in pain
    We can spend our Christmas evenin', upon eachother's arms and leanin'
    Kissin' in the fog and pourin' Christmas rain

    And we'll hold eachother closer, ridin' on a rollercoaster
    And we'll carol up and down the orange groves
    Enjoy the poinsettia flowers, ridin' up the Citrus Tower
    Throwin' coins down in the growin' treasure trove

    The foggy lake with light a-closin', almost looks like it was frozen
    Dew on spider webs just like a Christmas tree
    Feelin' many sorts of whimsy, watchin' fireworks at Disney
    Spending Christmas with you in pure harmony
  • The sky turns a bleakish grey
    Hiding the cover of the sun
    It soars over the despairing house,
    Darkening decaying walls and
    Leaving the dust to remain

    The days pass like deafening sirens
    Each more unsettling than the last
    But like an opposing magnet
    I yearn to be farther away, by
    Repelling you in vain

    Where'd I go wrong?
    All love is gone.
    And all that remains
    Is pain

    All that I gave
    All that I had
    And all that we made
    Melts away

    I feel like a grenade
    Waiting to go off
    A fuse split down the middle
    A pin waiting to be pulled
    Sending me in all directions

    All that I can do is
    try to avoid a flame
    But no matter what I do
    No matter what I try, you
    Always drive me insane

    Where'd I go wrong?
    All love is gone.
    And all that remains
    Is pain

    All that we gave
    All that we had
    And all that we made
    Melts away

    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on

    Don't stop, move on
  • The sky it opened wide today
    The rain it washed the pain away
    Made me wonder how you’ve been
    It’s been awhile since way back when

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    Is the sky the same down in Omaha?
    Is it also raining where you are?
    Do you wonder how my friend
    Life would be if the fight would end

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    No taking back the things we said
    Only moving on with the lives we led

    The clouds are clearing from the Sound
    Seasons come and go around
    Another year or ten will pass
    And still this chill between us lasts

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    Happy Endings Are Always Hard

    When the only way to you is through a lager glass,
    It feels like I’m the only thing that doesn’t matter
    Nothing left despite laughter, joy and better times,
    Just resentment, getting sadder
    There’s a love inside, hiding in the shadow,
    Until your walls slammed down forever more
    Our once upon a time seems like some macabre mechanical mime,
    A waste of time

    Chorus :
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    So tired of constant talking, please let me be at rest
    Joyous moments hidden in my weary mind
    Distant memories of darkened, fuzzy mystery,
    Forgot to guard this heart and let you in
    Turned to you each time I needed your embrace,
    But you had left to live the dream, a rush of streaking lace
    You wanted fairy tales and fables found on café tables
    A web of lies

    Chorus
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    Bridge
    I wanted Hallmark romance,
    We made a tragedy
    I thought you were the one,
    Now look what you have done

    End chorus
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    You’ve left me outside in the cold
    You broke me down, truth be told
    Please leave alone, my tender heart
    Our tragedy, right from the very start
  • Well hello there Eve
    Looking as ravishing as ever
    I've come to have a word with you
    About how to make your world better
    Oh?
    Life is pretty good here
    You've got everything you need
    But your father kept the best from you
    And hid it in his greed
    That's not true!!
    Are you calling me a liar?
    What would I have to gain
    I'm sick of all your father's lies
    So you're going to listen to what I say
    Get away from me!

    I don't know who to believe
    Yes you do, you just can't admit it
    My world is turning upside down
    Listen to me child, it won't take a minute

    If I'm to believe this serpent hisssss
    Then I'm living half a life
    I'm giving up my right to choose
    To avoid a life of strife
    You deserve more
    I love my Adam dearly
    But he's always followed blindly
    He would never betray us
    And he wouldn't hear this kindly
    Then tell him nothing
    So this is Father's Apple Tree
    Kept hidden away
    The fruit it bears looks as sweet
    As any I've had to taste
    Even sweeter dear child

    Just one bite and you'll be free
    Or else live without a voice
    With the tree before you, the decision is yours
    Then this will be my first choice

    [solo by allouttaupvotes]

    This knowledge is overwhelming
    And now I have to run
    Adam needs to learn this too
    And now my job is done

    Your Father's sure to punish you
    I accept any wrath he'll bring
    You fell into my trap sweet child
    But I don't regret a thing
  • (Ft. jonhopkinz420 on bass)

    Equal heights we're forbidden to reach
    Hungry mouths that we cannot feed
    Worth measured by the sweat on the brow
    They do with while you go without
    Giving offerings to golden calves
    Selling souls and making devils pacts
    Keeping us at war with ourselves
    While spoon fed on their fairy tales

    The long strong arm of force
    Jackals circling outside your door
    Do what we ask or you'll be compelled
    You are free to walk around this cell
    There's got to be a better way
    Where we are not in disarray
    There is a much better, better way
    Light the torch, today's the day so...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    New foundations from the ashes
    [A second chance at second chances]
    So step outside of your prison
    [Take the torch and choose ignition]
    No more turning of the screws
    Rejecting the lies and the abuse
    We've nothing left to lose
    So take the torch and light the fuse to...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    Light the fuse, today's the day so...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    More profound, more profound
  • I brought her carnations / it’s been a year
    Still have these sensations / all is too clear
    But you got off a cab / and came to moan
    To you it’s just a slab/ Just a tombstone

    I guess I’ll welcome you / in my capsize
    But if you came here to / apologize
    Well, you can leave this line / to make it right
    (Because)
    Your husband broke her spine / for a red light

    So don’t be my witness / quit your fake cures
    You are still my illness / I can be yours

    [Chorus]
    I lived until I got that call
    You let him drive to take it all
    Why should we feel closer?

    I kept the names, I closed the files
    I’m skipping through with nods and smiles
    [A+B] And yet it gets longer …

    [B]
    I stopped being carefree/ I felt your gash
    The day my love left me / in this same crash
    Spite rushed in every vein / I pushed it back
    I’m tired to restrain / but can’t unpack

    They see me dignified / while I feel lost
    Under this turning tide / here comes the cost
    Please let me meet your wife / Maybe she knows
    How to repair my life / with a few bows

    And if you let me stay / to scare the fear
    I’ll step into the fray / I’ll lend an ear

    [Chorus]
    My mind is blank and my soul fell
    But if you hate and if I dwell
    Why do we feel closer ?

    My only chance to talk is you
    There’s nowhere else to find what’s true
    Won’t be waiting longer

    [Bridge]
    [A] Let’s discover a way to ease the ache
    [B] And let’s find out there is no blame to take
    [B] Farewells broke us both, this fate is a link
    [A] Then show me the husband behind the ink

    [Chorus, A & B]
    If we want all things to add up
    Crying as one’s a good startup
    That’s how we feel closer

    We’ll share the tales we hid too soon
    Until we get to that one moon
    We wish could last longer
  • Can't you smell the smoke
    Rising from the burrows
    See it swallow the sun
    It seeps in through my nose

    I can taste it my mouth waters
    I've not eaten in a week

    The neighbours in the garden again
    Wonder how he gets it to grow
    Award sized pumpkins
    In soil weeds don't show

    Flies are buzzing round my head
    I barely move count drops instead

    There's a specter screaming
    Can't tell if it's just in my head

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death


    Someone was shot last night
    Its not been this close before
    Crimson flowing down the gutter
    Nothing gets cleaned anymore

    I guess I should do something
    I'm the only one left
    Where did all my friends go
    I don't remember where they went

    There's a reckoning coming
    I guess I'll be next

    Do you remember waking up
    Thoughts of lost yesterdays
    Summers lost to the haze
    As all our time drips away

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death

    Come on down to the waters edge
    Plunge deep take no breaths
    Come on down to the waters edge
    Plunge deep take no breaths

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death

  • VERSE 1
    I want Paris
    A love that’s careless
    Just a slow promenade down an old boulevard
    A man on my arm like an old movie star

    But life ain’t all champagne
    no perfect painting
    Sure the walls of the Louvre are so pretty it’s true
    But the floors are as dirty as my city shoes

    CHORUS
    I want a golden romance
    Filled out in classical forms
    But here on these crowded sidewalks
    I just hear honking horns

    Where is my Valentino
    I wanna be Clara Bow
    Wish life was a silent movie
    So I could enjoy the show

    VERSE 2
    On a Ferris wheel ride
    We go up to the sky
    The jewels in the crown of the carnival grounds
    up in these clouds I can’t hear a sound

    CHORUS
    Of all the hucksters hustling
    Selling three plays a buck
    Aiming for jackpot prizes
    the lights in my eyes and I’m stumbling drunk

    I am not Charlie Chaplin
    I want no Greta Garbo
    Life ain’t a silent movie
    I just enjoy the show

    TRANSITION
    You want all fun n’ games
    And you see the world in flames


    I live life at its face
    No denying this place
    is a chaos that we must embrace


    Let’s turn down the contrast
    On the gloom or I’ll pass
    maybe just change up the cast

    BRIDGE

    I’m getting tired of his oscillating rhythms
    Nothing ‘bout it’s fascinatin’ swear that I could hit ‘em
    Life’s too complicated
    To be so agitated

    I’m getting tired of her juvenile wishing
    flitting in fantasy I want realism
    Life is complicated
    I would never trade it

    I have all these pictures in my mind
    all these pictures in my mind
    all these pictures in my mind

    You and all your pictures in your mind
    All the pictures in your mind
    All the pictures in your mind

    I am getting tired of the life you think your living
    Compromise is fine but we have different visions
    Life is complicated
    Life’s too complicated

    TRANSITION
    You want all fun n’ games
    And you see the world in flames

    VERSE 3
    You stay I’ll leave
    You and your make believe
    I don’t hold nothing against you
    Wish I could see things the way you do

    CHORUS
    But this ain’t a world that’s quiet
    It breathes and booms and busts
    a gut and kicks up a riot
    Good bye and good luck

    Hope you find Valentino
    To call you his Clara Bow
    So you can have your silent movie
    enjoy the show

  • In Death, Disguise or Madness

    [Patroclus]
    I'll never forget how you whispered
    You'd cradle my hair in your palm, I was held in your arms
    We laid together in the dark caves or under the stars

    You told me again and again what you liked
    We had our youth left, to embrace and to smile
    And my reactions towards you are as sweet
    As the song that you play on your lyre

    Love the sound of your song could lead me anywhere
    Your sense of self leaves me defenceless
    No matter what you became I would know you

    In dark, disguise or madness
    You are not to blame for what became of me
    I'm the one who chose to don your pauldron

    There's no need for you to fight now, no point for you to prove
    Just being in your shoes filled me with a pride of loving you

    [Achilles]
    I still know you in death
    Even in my disguise,
    If only everyone could see you the way that I do
    As I did then, I'm sure that you knew
    You followed me no matter the folly I'd choose

    If our destiny was a choice
    I'd have chosen for you

    [Patroclus]
    Achilles I've not seen the future,
    and yet I worry what will come of you now that I'm lost
    Your fame must be worth the life that you pay for it

    There's still time to steal from the fates
    You and your words, I've forgiven your hubris
    Please see sense though things now feel senseless

    Don't follow the fated narrative, Aristos Achaion
    We swore I'd be the reason for your fame and happiness
    Remember the pact of our youth

    Achilles, the other half of my soul, I fear that you will be dead soon
    And your honor is all that will remain.

    [Achilles]
    I can't put you to rest
    With coins in your eyes
    I've yet to outgrow the blind greed you so painfully knew
    I had it then, but now it's for you
    Revenge for your death is all that's left to choose

    I can't leave you to rest
    Dead in my disguise,
    Reality a nightmare that feels too wrong to be true
    Can't sleep at night, can't eat without you
    I had never before felt what it's like to lose

    Patroclus, I have done you the greatest disservice,
    I disgraced you while living, you begged for help from me and I said

    [Achilles and Patroclus]
    “Patroclus, I’ve given enough to them.
    I will not give them this, let them die"

    I dishonor you by fighting to my death
    (Achilles, remember our promise)
    Your loss shines a light on my madness
    (Achilles, what about your honor?)
    I wish that you had let them all die
    (Achilles, I beg you to stop this)
    You are the best of men, philtatos, most beloved
    (Achilles, Aristos Achaion)
    Once I put you to rest, there will be nothing of me left
    (I am made of memories, of memories of you)
    It's not nearly been enough time

    [Achilles]
    The world has no right to my fight,
    They have no right to ask me anything when they let you fall
    Your loss brought with it my vengeance for death
    I'll meet you in Elysium instead
    Until then I'll be cherishing what I have left
    Your ashes and the memory of when you were mine
    Given time,
    I only want to be remembered for having been loved by you
  • An Autumn Scene

    The smell of smoke
    We hear the show
    Neighbors are out back
    Think that we don't know

    The gathered leaves
    It's time to burn
    One season ends
    They sound concerned

    Wheelbarrow's full
    Puts down the rake
    His then tells him
    She needs a break

    Trees growing bare
    That time of year
    It's getting dark
    Right atmosphere

    Holding hands as we watch the show
    The setting sun, until the fire's done
    Glowing, the embers making steam
    An autumn scene

    Arguments
    Flow thru the air
    They don't hit home
    I say a prayer

    Is this the norm
    When that much time
    Passes beween
    An uphill climb

    He asks her why
    She shakes her head
    The wind picks up
    Can't hear what's said

    Hands in pockets
    As she departs
    My forlorn neighbor
    His broken heart
    Torn in parts

    Squeeze my hand so I know you're there
    Though they went bust, it won't be us
    Knowing, the tenderest of teams
    An autumn scene

    The evening's cold
    He went inside
    We'll do the same
    Since the fire died

    Maybe they'll heal
    And seal the cracks
    He'll wait for her
    If she'll come back
    Will she come back
  • There's too much going on now.
    I can't hear myself think.
    There's noise from all directions.
    I'm living on the brink.

    And I will have to face the chaos.
    But it can wait another day.
    Because I'm going to where it's silent
    Yeah I'm going to get away.


    I'm leaving all my cords behind
    The tentacles around my mind


    Out here (out here)
    There's no one near for miles
    Out here (out here)
    I can finally clear my mind


    But I can't stay lost forever
    I have too much incumbency
    So I'm back to where I left from
    And it's getting the best of me

    But I escape just for a moment
    I close my eyes and breath in deep
    And in my mind I'm on that mountain
    In all it's majesty


    I'm leaving all my stress behind
    I feel the peace within my mind


    Out here (out here)
    There's nothing near for miles
    Out here (out here)
    I can finally clear my mind


    I throw my keys on the table
    I can finally choose my course
    No one here to set agendas
    And no rules to be enforced

    And so I pick up my old guitar
    Put those headphones on my ears
    And I escape into creation
    All the noise, it disappears


    In here (in here)
    I'm the one whose in control
    In here (in here)
    I can finally bare my soul

    In here (in here)
    I'm the master of my sphere
    In here (in here)
    I can see the world so clear.
  • Hey there friend
    You wrote a million letters
    I just got 'em
    I promise I'll write more
    I hope you get that sweater
    I don't know how to end this
    Hope to here from you soon

    Hey there friend
    It's been awhile
    Since we talked meanwhile
    Nothing’s happening here
    I might have written a million letters
    But I was too nervous to send them all
    I'm pretty sure you got at least one
    Hope to see you soon

    Hey there friend
    Haven't heard from you in a bit
    Something wrong
    You said you'd write soon
    Maybe you forget my address
    That has to be right
    That has to be right
    You still miss me right?

    Hey there friend
    Its been awhile
    I dont think you you’d recognize me
    I think I’ve forgotten your smile
    Did you get that sweater
    Was it comfy?
    Did you get my letters?
    I know I sent a million this time
    I thought I forgot your address

    hey there friend
    its been hard
    i don't think i’d recognize you anymore
    how long’s it been a year or two
    probably more
    i thought you’d at least reply by now
    it’s funny that even though
    we don't talk anymore
    we’re still looking at the same stars
    they didn't mean anything to you but i thought they were neat
    goodbye friend
  • When you hit the neon streets
    There ain't no time to find your feet, c'mon let's
    Hover, over the edge of night

    Click your heels and count to one
    The two of us are makin' fun, from where we
    Hover, over and out of sight

    I don't need a plan to be happy
    I believe in life on the fly
    In a sea of stars, we'll go farther than by car
    In flight

    Don't break this contact
    Till I bring you back
    From the fold and the furl
    At the end of the world

    Do-do-do-don't be despondent
    When want becomes went
    To the bend or the burl
    At the end of the world

    But the end is not the end
    You'll always be my friend
    It don't need defending
    All those on the ground might stop pretending

    When you feel the town crush down
    There ain't no time to stand around, c'mon let's
    Hover, over the edge of night

    Clap your hands if you want more
    We got a land to go explore, from where we
    Hover, over and out of sight

    We don't need a plan to be happy
    We believe in do, never die
    In a sea of stars, we'll go farther than far
    In flight

    Don't break this contact
    Till I bring you back
    From the fold and the furl
    At the end of the world

    Do-do-do-don't be despondent
    When want becomes went
    To the bend or the burl
    At the end of the world

    But the end is not the end
    You'll always be my friend
    It don't need defending
    All those on the ground might stop pretending

    Take a look around
    That horizon calls to you
    Wake up to the sound
    That surprising point of view

    Take a look around
    That horizon calls to you
    Wake up to the sound
    That surprising point of view
  • I remember when we met my friend
    You were cold and I was starving
    while I was tired I made a fire
    And you shared with me your bread

    It was winter then many moons ago
    We had time we don't have now
    But December winds will always blow
    And whispers echo off the snow

    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    As the night turns into mourning
    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    Gone like before you were born

    I can't believe you're leaving me
    But you'll be in the seaside breeze
    In the swaying trees and falling leaves
    You'll be in the air I breathe

    When you were blind I gave my eyes
    And you lent to me you ear
    When thunder followed lightning strikes
    You told me not to fear

    When the earth and sun collided
    It was you I would confide in
    But you left me here alone
    and I'm only flesh and bones

    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    As the night turns into mourning
    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    Gone like before you were born

    I can't believe you're leaving me
    But you'll be in the seaside breeze
    In the swaying trees and falling leaves
    You'll be in the air I breathe

  • And ashes littered the ground below
    As smoke billowed overhead
    The pariah walked out of the fire pit
    Everybody thought him dead
    He had no time to recuperate
    He wouldn't have time to heal
    His sacrifice should have changed the world
    But were any of those promises real?

    A fierce storm thundered overhead
    Black clouds blocked out the sun
    The pariah was soaked through to the bone
    As he waited for death to come

    A kindly stranger found him there
    Offering honey and milk
    This stranger gave him shelter too
    And clothed him in cotton and silk

    The pariah passed this good deed on
    Helping all he found in pain
    But the more he looked the more he saw
    Of the misery this world contained
    He had to make a change somehow
    End the systemic greed
    Kings and Queens feasted on the fat
    Leaving little for those in need

    The King feared the change this man could bring
    So tricked him with a pact
    If the man could survive the roaring pyre
    The King would give up all he had
    The pariah was silent as he felt the flames
    And the crowd left him and the fire
    The inferno consumed everything
    But it couldn't harm the pariah
  • Verse
    I've had it up to nowhere with your flat attitude
    Reliving the past like it's today

    Carrying a burnt out candle and reading the news
    that was reported yesterday

    Feeling sorry for who you used to be
    guilt twisted sucking you dry

    Crooked mouth lying says that you are free
    cobwebs holding shut your black eye (edited)


    Chorus:
    Hold it all together
    With the story you tell yourself
    Justify living forever
    Demonize somebody else

    Never moving forward
    Ghosts of nothing holding you back
    Reveling in boredom
    Blind future just looking black


    Verse:
    Broken Memory sour tasing regurgitate
    Only remember what you want

    Looking for excuses to wallow in hate
    betraying your only confidant

    See the writing on the wall read it by gaslight
    make up the story as you go

    Knowing deep inside that this is not alright
    hide behind the smile that you show
  • My head was spinnin' and my knees were weak
    My forehead was burnin' and my nose, it leaked
    Wet heavin' all day when, to my surprise
    My third eye opened and I realized

    I'm not of this world, my dearest Ben
    I don't need no air, my closest friend
    You're lookin' at me funny, I don't know why
    I'm tellin' you the truth, man, I'm from the sky!

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon

    Shakin' and a-shiv'rin', feelin' 10 foot small
    Banging my head up against the wall
    Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
    Take my hand, toss me into free-flight

    Ben, Benny, Ben, won'cha listen to me
    You're the one earpiece for my Luna-cy
    No one else is gonna listen to my pleas
    So sing along, Benny-boy, sing with me, please

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon

    I see the world through dolly zoom
    Pannin' up to see the moon
    The crazy feelin' that I get
    Play it on cristal baschet

    Won't you help me, Benny-dear
    Y'know I don't belong down here
    Bring me back where I belong
    And listen to me sing my song

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon
  • My bedroom is a mess
    It’s been a year or two
    Why do I feel helpless?
    There’s so much left to do

    The last drop of my cup
    Won’t give me an answer
    I’ll add everything up
    Somewhere in the shower

    I used to swear it would never happen
    Used to walk when others run
    The food still has taste, but will it last?
    Am I living the last bits of my past?

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters

    Those billions in the haze
    They have it worse than me
    Some say to fear their gaze
    And enjoy my story

    We’ve crammed them in a graph
    But if there’s no payoff,
    Who speaks on their behalf?
    Who rubbed their faces off?

    I used to count my blessings every day
    I used to let my pride lead me astray
    Good thing no one will be there to applaud
    The day I’ll forget my OKs are flawed

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters

    I’ll keep this legacy of gratitude
    ‘Cause not playing along seems odd and rude
    If I fall on the wrong side of the chain
    Don’t ask me to look for the greater pain

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters
  • Black fumes curl in whorls upon pallid skies
    Demons wail in chains, far as the crow flies
    Falling walls, endless mountains of stones
    The grey of death lies over the pall

    The final breath of a mother in throes,
    Children crying as the spirits pass
    Blackened sun illuminating the void,
    The wraiths enchant the minds of the thralls

    Lightning strikes the earth,
    Crackled doom while the humans burn
    Armies of the pure
    Lay their rotten fingers over everything

    Turgid mud churning under the foot
    Desperate eyes peer from under thick soot
    Heaving mass writhing in acrid air
    One after another, makes the fall

    Lightning strikes the earth,
    Crackled doom while the humans burn
    Armies of the pure
    Laid to waste like all gods were before
  • I wish I left a love note
    For you sitting on your desk
    But I've never been there
    There's no good way to express

    I cant just send an email
    Or post it on your wall
    I try to convey my feelings
    To you through video calls


    Trapped alone inside my home
    Going outside just isn't smart
    Maybe I'll write a poem
    To my dearest faraway heart.


    Our calls are my only highlight
    Long days spent on a screen
    From dawn until the twilight
    I type into my little screen

    Someday we can be maskless
    And show our true ourselves
    How long this lasts, no one can guess
    Trade mental for physical health


    Zoom's no stand-in for real life
    All but you I want to forget
    Could I be your love, be your wife
    When we have never met

    I get overwhelmed when it's too much
    The waiting's just so hard
    I ache in my soul, long for your touch
    Need to be with my faraway heart.


    Yet we found each other on the web
    Cupid hit us through an app
    We heal each other as sickness spreads
    Your far location on the map

    We're saving up for you to fly here
    But it's so hard; money's tight
    Lost jobs and stalled careers
    Your voice and face - they set me right


    I can't wait until I finally see you
    In your arms, no longer apart
    All the past times will now be new
    You're here now, my faraway heart
  • It's half past godforsake o'clock and I've never felt more apart than this moment
    Handles pointing opposite, mirroring the way we sit on the sofa
    The space colder than it's close

    Two throats so dry from words unsaid with tears that flood river beds not yet frozen
    A chill that permeates the air, seeping through in everywhere,
    My hands have never been this cold

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up

    My watch keeps ticking mercilessly, it doesn't offer empathy for the broken
    The smooth surface keeps mocking me, as I shatter endlessly
    Why does my reflection lie?

    There's nothing sweet in this wasteland where ice forms, sharp enough to stab
    Where the sentiment of past chokes me up in moments that we never had

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up
    I'll be praying for tomorrow

    There's a hidden message here between the thorns of roses placed in my bouquet
    The scent of sentiment suffocating, closing on in
    A front that keeps away the warmth, a fog keeping us in the dark
    I keep praying for tomorrow

    There's a hidden message here between the morning and the dark that follows light
    If we stay still maybe time won't pass us by
    An instance we both hold our breath, forever is better than death
    I keep praying for tomorrow not to come

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    There's no avoiding we could suddenly be strangers
    Isn't it strange? Isn't that strange?

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up
    I'll be praying for tomorrow not to come
    I'll be praying for tomorrow not to come
  • When will you lock away the dragon in your mind?
    The scars of fire ache inside, the fear I try to hide
    You threaten me with promises of tenderness and love,
    I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again

    Words from silver tongues can never worm into my mind,
    Each lie, it falls and shrivels when I see familiar signs,
    Tracing my reminders of every time I bled,
    I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know


    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    When red horizons rise, it’s time to run and hide,
    Your anger, it erupts and it envelops me inside,
    The ugly face of man, entitled, rotten flesh,
    I buckled and I bent, to leave you here for dead

    The twisted hate inside your soul,
    It fuels the demon in the hole
    This story is a sordid thing,
    The demon dressed up like a king
    It sounded like a fairy tale,
    Aesop’s finest happy fable
    Turned into a horror show,
    But I’m still here to make it flow

    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    Too strong to break again…
    Never feel that way again…

    I, felt the dark grow inside me
    You, rained with roiling spite
    Drowned in senseless rage
    Burdened with the blame

    Shed this dying skin
    Shed the numb within
    Tears upon my skin
    Sobbing deep within…

    In your silver suit facade, it’s easy just to see,
    The broken bully, scared, alone, unable to be free
    Ivory tower up above, so far away from all,
    You burst and burn alive, what’s dead will never die


    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    Now, you know
  • A thorn from your rose, it splits my tongue
    Leaves my mouth both heated and numb
    Crying curses towards your moon and stars
    May they be forever furthest from the sun

    A bud that sprouts, fresh, from bitter soil
    Noxious and vicious, intent to destroy
    Crying curses towards the sky in appeal
    May your horizons darken and forever boil

    It is finished
    It is done
    By my own hand
    Wicked has won

    The hunger in my heart, this garden it stalked
    I cannot outrun my own ragged remorse
    Crying curses towards the ravens and hawks
    As they haggle and feast upon your corpse

    Petals all shades of my blossoming woe
    Smothered so deep just the devil might know
    Crying curses towards azaleas that spy
    May nothing but sorrow take root and grow

    It is finished
    It is done
    By my own hand
    Wicked has won

    I've spent all my curses
    I'll appeal to the judges
    The misfortunes of passion
    A capricious action
    The hand indeed sinful
    But my heart is mournful
    In the shadow of the oak
    Where I opened his throat

  • Verse:
    Sit in silence and reads the faces
    A second like an hour, remembering places
    The words drip and cut like a thousand papers
    Drop the head and feel betrayed, still no laters
    Tomorrow for some, may never come
    No light left, behind the eyes, and with all that we’re done

    Chorus:
    It always starts with Once Upon a time
    Once upon a time
    It always ends with a breath in time
    Once upon a time
    Fairy tales in demons dreams once were mine,
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon is fine

    Verse:
    Taking a step forward, hit by a train back
    What in life is this feeling that we lack
    The tears burn like rivers each and every day
    The lines etched in me like scars in their own way
    We repeat the story, we repeat the past
    Time heals all wounds as we never last

    Chorus:
    It always starts with Once Upon a time
    Once upon a time
    It always ends with a breath in time
    Once upon a time
    Fairy tales in demons dreams once were mine,
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon is fine

    Coda:
    When we give it power in its name,
    It drips like poison from our tongues
    It’s like we never learn from our
    Once upon a times, once upon a lies
    The moment we let it in,
    That moment we are gone
    Hope is a four letter word,
    That we throw at children's songs
    Hope is having faith in humanity
    Faith is a hopeless cause
    When we live in once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time.
  • Another day is dawning
    The quiet roads are yawning
    I’m looking for you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there

    The highway humming softly
    The sunlight slowly dropping
    I thought I saw you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky

    The morning star is fading
    The world awash in waiting
    Still looking for you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky
  • Been trying to
    Decipher the smoke
    How it drifts
    And how it chokes

    Been trying to divine
    The shadows
    And the time
    How they know
    Give me a sign


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like a candle
    In the night


    Like a moth to the flame
    Too spellbound and possessed
    To see
    The light
    That's been chasing me


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like a beacon
    In the night


    The sun was at my back all along
    Looking in the wrong direction for so long
    The sun had my back all along
    All I had to do was turn around


    Been trying to
    Scrutinize the smoke
    All it hides
    And all it cloaks
    Been trying to sift through wishes
    The past
    Lost within this
    At last
    A clear path


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like the dawn
    Breaking the night


    The sun was at my back all along
    Looking in the wrong direction for so long
    The sun had my back all along
    All I had to do was turn around

    And I have been delicately caught
    In the palm of your hand
    When I was smoldering, spiraling
    You are what I've always sought
    Instead of flying off
    I should have turned around
  • So long, adios
    This is the part where I hit the road
    There is nothing left for me here
    No silver lining

    Stand up, raise a glass
    Like all good things I too shall pass
    I’ve done all that I needed to do
    The light’s so blinding

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    Blazed through, wasted youth
    But when it mattered, I spoke my truth
    I lost more battles than I won
    But I’m still smiling

    Mess made; bed laid
    Should have gone but also stayed
    Decisions that made so much sense
    Now leave me pining

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    And I never performed on a stage
    And I never learned to fly a plane
    The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
    Is crazy in a life like mine
    Where I’ve always been just fine
    Just fine

    Meet someone, fall in love
    Last a year but then move on
    We both know we’re much better off
    So keep on swiping

    Bored, tired - doesn’t sound like me
    I’ll snatch a defeat from victory
    My friends, foes, fam and countrymen
    We’re all here, crying

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    Check out, pay the bill
    You can’t stop me, I won’t keep still
    Worked hard each and every day
    And I’m still climbing

    Blessed be the fruit
    I bow to no one, including you
    I’m the master of my own demise
    Look at me – winning

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    nd I never performed on a stage
    And I never learned to fly a plane
    And I never dared to stoke the flame
    And I never called you by your name
    The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
    Is crazy in a life like mine
    Where I’ve always been just fine
    Just fine
  • Taking my final breath
    Give me a little death
    A swiftly dark release
    The waves are crashing now
    Consuming broken bow
    Pulling me underneath

    Follow your losing lead
    Swallow the whole of me
    There is no coming back
    Dive down into the dark
    Follow my breaking heart
    To save what cannot last

    Drowning faster than my hope can rise
    And you’re still not letting go

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    I’ve given all I have to give
    Leave me all my life to live
    Save ourselves the dark dismay
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    Look where you saw me last
    Remember all that passed
    The lessons that we learned
    And should you see me now
    I’ll be more lost than found
    A memory that you burned

    Drowning faster than my hope can rise
    You learned to let me go

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You took us out to sea
    You took the whole of me
    Until the world fell down
    Until we both could drown

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You said you had to stay
    But then you walked away
    Walk away
    Walk away
  • Led in chains
    Flagellated
    blood-like roses crown her head.

    Pain is real, so is the Fear,
    she knows Freedom has a price..

    Light the Pyre
    Set her on Fire
    Her Truth is poison to our ears.

    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.

    Wide awake she walks the charcoal path
    thoughts don't matter anymore

    Ignorance as crowd control
    The wicked lit the wick of their demise...

    Her Science is real and so are their fears
    orcs and dragons she may fight
    but she knows, oh she well knows,
    the scariest ghouls are flesh-boned Men.

    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.
    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.

    [You knew it was coming... it's SOLO TIME]

    The delusions and dead gods ran far too long
    viled and poisoned the well
    children are born blind and deaf.
    History redeem yourself!

    When her ashes fall and spread
    in the corner of our eyes
    a nested dream will be--- Reborn
  • Everyday as the sunrise comes over the mountains on the east
    My ambition grows bolder
    I'm here to conquer maybe won't have time for niceties
    I'm growing bolder

    Holding my future in my hands
    Watch as the world unravels my plans
    You ain't seen nothing yet

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be
    There's no other moment, this time is mine (mine!) (mine!)
    Barreling into the future, my success clear as day
    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way

    As I stand where the ocean waves crash onto my feet
    I grow colder
    The height of pressure taking its time to crash onto me
    Weight's on my shoulder

    Holding my future in my hands
    Watch as the world unravels my plans
    I've not seen nothing yet

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be

    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way

    I won't stand here and be lectured
    Won't accept your ridicule
    Your insistence to taunt me
    No surprise I've seen your rule
    It's time to bow down
    Say goodbye to not-so-glory days
    There's only one option left now
    Everything coming my way

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be
    There's no other moment, this time is mine (mine!) (mine!)
    Barreling into the future, my success clear as day
    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way
  • Like busy body ants, crawl across the mantelpiece
    Always running, never getting anywhere
    Divorced from meaning, tired of the pain
    Wash them all away

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    Watching, wishing that my heart will beat again
    But the window only shows the grey
    Another wretched morning, compelled to join the crowd
    I cannot find the strength to face the day
    In monotony we’re meant to find our peace
    But I’m beaten down

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    We feel the bonds, they drag us down
    The tyranny of totality
    I know I’m captured by expectancy
    I’ll make it go somehow

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow

    I feel like an ant under the boot
    Smash them all away…

  • It ain't about the money
    We're in it for the show
    We've been getting something ready
    And world needs to know

    While most of the world is in bed sleeping
    Our slice of life is up all night dreaming
    living and breathing with all of our being
    Working on beats, plotting, an' scheming

    getting all ready for the day we're seizing
    Practice until every lines got feeling
    down in the studio, spittin out and dealin
    A bomb ass track, a masterpiece gleaming

    We refuse to settle cause we're making something special
    So fuck the writer's block we'll go beneath it
    And dig down deeper to the bottom of the well
    Cause there's a wish down there if you believe it

    One more line
    one more rhyme
    one more note
    one more time
    one more stage
    one more night
    one more chance
    to get it right

    There's a common told unhelpful myth
    That everybody's born with some special gift
    musicians aren't born, or christened
    You see an hour on stage, but how many went in?

    better not discount our discipline
    the screamed out throats and the calloused skin
    we get going when the going gets tough
    we practice till we're good enough to stand up

    spilling our soul and blood and guts
    in dark rooms, that might not listen
    and if we get cut down or passed up
    its back to the lab to continue the mission
  • You'd see us playin' high up on the stage, underneath bright flashing lights
    Wide angle shots of us shreddin' away, singing out into the night
    Rotoscoping and some special effects, as superb as they can be
    With good promotion and the right time slot, we'll be kings of MTV

    A tool for promotion
    Bottle in the ocean
    The people would love us-

    -if this song had a video
    I tell you, it would be a great one
    Everything would be synced up to the music
    Nothing would be wasted
    And I tell you it would be fun

    In this part you would see us all alone, in a forest far away
    Dancing in the dark, singing in the rain, every place and every way
    And then we'd all become animated, with light shining from our eyes
    Spirals and zigzags flying around, colors filling up the skies

    Crazy imagery
    Wrought with symmetry
    Bound to stick in your head-

    -if this song had a video
    I tell you, it would be a great one
    Everything would be synced up to the music
    Nothing would be wasted

  • (Verse)
    I was drinking in a restaurant, southeast of Gainesville
    And something 'bout the way she looked, it bent me to her will
    And the way she grabbed my collar, made me feel like I was ill

    She took me pack to her place, and I felt our love was true
    We laid in bed and tossed and turned, and when the night was through
    I woke up and then she was gone, and I was just confused

    (Chorus)
    Was she just a phosphene?
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    (Verse)
    Well I went back to the restaurant, to have myself a think
    I tried to see if you she was there, I felt my heart just sink
    I couldn't see her anywhere, and bought myself some drinks

    As I drank myself half to death, I let my sadness out
    I smashed my glasses in my hands, and I felt myself shout
    "Oh where did you go, woman?" And I felt myself pass out

    (Chorus)
    Was she just a phosphene?
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    (Solo)

    (Half-verse)
    So there I was along the road, arm held out for a ride
    And what I saw across from me, it tore me up inside
    For there I saw the woman, with a new man by her side

    (Chorus)
    She was just a phosphene
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    She was just a phosphene
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes


  • Emotion: Resentment

    Verse 1
    Housing market's gonna fall down
    Climate change means we will all drown
    This was all done without consent
    The past was different from the present
    All that's left to do is just frown

    Work your way through college you're told
    What other lies were you sold
    Living costs exponentially rose
    Stuck with debt that'll never resolve
    Only thing left here is fool's gold

    Chorus
    It will be fun is what they always said
    But all that's left is existential dread
    Reduce reuse recycle
    Won't make up for lobbyist rule
    Can't make a difference so just go ahead

    Verse 2
    Read books stop playing video games
    Find a job by taking down names
    No more coffees or avocado toast
    Without napkins you'll be a terrible host
    How could there be no shame

    Raise a family on one income
    If we did it, it can be done
    Living costs spiral every day
    To all the boomers well okay
    It isn't good now for anyone

    [instrumental]

    Chorus
    It will be fun is what they always said

  • Everybody wants to be king of the hill
    But I wanna get to the top and jump off, just for the thrill

    I wanna gather up all the caution
    And throw it off into the wind
    The lows I've experienced
    All erased by adrenaline
    So sick of the futility
    Watching the hours tick on by
    My head is in the clouds
    And I'm free-falling from the sky


    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster
    When I'm running with wolves
    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules


    The nerves of momentum
    Beat the anxiety I feel when I'm numb
    Wanna feel I've lived a life worth leading
    When the end it finally comes
    It's all about the will and whim
    The impulse and the risk
    It's all about how free you feel
    In that one moment of magic

    [1:48]
    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster

    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules

    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster
    When I'm running with wolves
    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules
  • Wake up, coffee on
    Shower if I’ve got the time
    Half a slice of toast and I’m out the door at ten to nine
    Train’s late by just a minute
    Enough time to stare into the distance

    Wake up, Tuesday’s harder
    I showered yesterday – whatever
    Bread’s gone mouldy, no surprise, scrape it off and head outside
    Train’s late by just a minute
    Enough time to question my existence

    Wake up, rolling over
    Not again, you must be joking
    Bacon roll, treat myself, not like I care for my health
    Fucking train, it’s late again
    Enough time to question everything

    Wake up, hello Thursday!
    God, this is excruciating
    Think about a pint tonight – I’ll fill the void with what I like
    Stupid train’s on time today
    Stupid motherfucking train

    Wake up, fuck you Friday
    Snoozed alarm, eyes still blurry
    Think about calling in sick but what’s the point of staying here?
    Missed the train by just a minute
    Now there’s too much time to think about

    Wake up, wake up
    It’s just the same again but different
    Spend the weekend drinking, eating, curled up in a ball and weeping
    The train still goes but I’m not on it
    Yeah the train still goes but I’m not on it

    Wake up, back to sleep
    Stomach full of half-told dreams
    There’s no conclusion, no end complete
    I’ll keep consuming everything
    Because something’s got to work, okay?
  • It’s the only thing I ever wanted
    I scratched and crawled through my disgrace
    Don’t you dare to take it from me
    Please leave me just my fallen place

    I know that you could take it easy
    A sable nod is all you need
    I’m telling you that it will break me
    If nothing else just take this heed

    There’s no escape now
    (My time is never coming)
    You’re going to take it all from me
    All except my jealousy

    A sacrifice was too much for asking
    I should have guessed it from the start
    Can’t blame a guy for one last try
    Appealing to your lack of heart

    There you go, you’re stepping in
    Taking up what was my place
    As if I were a super void
    Existing just to take up space

    A little slower now

    Don’t tell me how

    There’s no escape now

    I know you best and you never did know me
    You are snake eyes and the earliest sin
    Take it all and come on set me free

    A little slower now
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how

  • [Emotion: Joyfulness]

    To her, it was like the Sun didn’t hide behind the clouds and the rain
    Because, one foot after the other, she walked.

    She craved for something more
    Than a bed and ti-red fa-ces
    (Tired faces)

    She's gonna push that door
    Her steps will be sepa-rate dan-ces
    (Separate dances)

    What if it was too cold ?
    And could she really go headfirst ?
    (Go Headfirst)

    A whole world to remold
    Waited her euphoria to burst
    (Outburst)

    Last month - when her best years seemed lost and cried
    She gazed her window for a guide
    For the quietest waving by the hillside
    (The hill side)

    And then - she saw the tulips were in bloom
    They looked different in these costumes
    She wondered and witnessed this newfound room
    (Newfound room)

    Now that she couldn’t fall
    She realized she needed closure
    (Needed Closure)

    None can erase it all
    But some manage to start over
    (Start over)

    Maybe she'll write a book
    Maybe she'll become president
    (President)

    With no boundaries to look
    She's done waiting for her advent
    (Her advent)

    Falling - in this entrancing vertigo
    Where every dream could live and grow
    Her whole body forgot how to say no
    (To say no)

    All gone - are the doubts, the fears and the gloom
    The air felt like a new perfume
    And her mind uncovered this newfound room
    (Newfound room)

    Her own

    (Fast spoken, almost rapping)
    She’s now believing
    It’s all worth living
    It’s all up to her
    She’ll sort and she’ll stir

    Wonderful misses
    Chocolate and kisses
    Parties and new friends
    Embrace, make amends

    Painting for her sake
    Driving ‘til daybreak
    Her rules are rewrote
    She will be afloat

    It doesn’t matter
    It’s been an hour
    When she felt lowbrow
    Was a life ago

    She’s now believing
    It’s all worth living
    It’s all up to her
    She’ll sort and she’ll stir

    Wonderful misses
    Chocolate and kisses
    Parties and new friends
    Embrace, make amends

    Painting for her sake
    Driving ‘til daybreak
    Her rules she rewrote
    She will be afloat

    The day she’ll feel down
    Alone in the town
    She’ll make space once more
    Until she could soar !

    Falling - in this entrancing vertigo
    Where every dream could live and grow
    Her whole body forgot how to say no
    (To say no)

    All gone - are the doubts, the fears and the gloom
    The air felt like a new perfume
    And her mind uncovered this newfound room
  • I Can Fly

    This world we live in, is so full of beauty and bliss
    The lovely nature, it can't get much better than this
    There's little better, than laying down in the grass
    And let the anger, and hatred of life slowly pass

    It's almost something I'd see in a dream
    And the view I get is perfect it seems

    But I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be

    I see it all with, these wings I grew a week ago
    And how I grew them, I'm not sure that I'll ever know
    My wings are painted, like the soul of a butterfly
    And with such beauty, do you even need to ask why?

    I feel alive, like never before
    Wanna see it all, just gotta see more

    Cos I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be

    Fly with me

    But I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be
  • Secret cove that I found
    Tranquil way to leave ground
    Nothing but ocean sounds -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    A way to live differently
    Light reflects brillantly
    So I submit to the sea -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    Leaving shadows for light
    Submerged, out of sight
    Emerge it feels right -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    Paddle out and begin
    Turn my board, feel the wind
    Letting go of what's been -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    If it all goes as planned
    I'll ride right up to the land
    And lie back in the sand -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    Even when I'm not here
    I still get my mind clear
    No worries, no fears -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    The foam hurls at me its pearls
    As the busy world swirls
    This girl rides over the curl -
    Surf the Serenity.....

    The attraction begins
    and satisfaction sets in
    no distractions within -
    Surf the Serenity....

    I get off of my board
    Sit down and look at the sky,
    This sacred place I've adored -
    My friends the seagulls fly by

    I don't ever wanna go back
    So peaceful here all alone
    Don't need to run with the pack
    On the beach skipping stones!
    On the beach skipping stones!

    Rain starts, thunder cracks
    So now it's time to head back
    Put on the clothes that I packed
    Leaving Serenity,,,,

    The seagulls say bye with a screech
    I head away from the beach
    and leave the peace that I've reached -
    Farewell Serenity....
  • You caught me innocent
    You taught me lots of things
    You bought me bits of lace when I was in a bad place

    You set me up to fall
    And told me not to caterwaul
    As you made some Coors Light cabal with all our friends

    You tucked me in a trance
    Then snuck into some other girl's pants
    Did your big brain say "Atta boy", at a glance?

    You caught me innocent
    You taught me lots of things
    You taught me many, many things

    Let's see your "love" in motion
    Almost sounds like the beating of my heart

    What happened to your car, babe?
    Did you miss a payment?
    You won't be taking up a parking space anymore
    Why did you lose your job, babe?
    Charm just couldn't save it?
    So I'm not sleeping over at your place anymore?
    Where did your posse go, babe?
    Did they ditch a vagrant?
    You won't be needing numbers on your phone anymore
    Why don't you bus on home, babe?
    Season's seating vacant
    Why can't your brother look you in the face anymore?

    You're in a living hell
    'Cause you're not living well enough
    But heaven hath no wrath half as tough as me

    You treated me like dirt
    And now you got mud in your eye
    Try to cry
    Don't act hurt, it's just dessert

    Let's see your plan of action
    Almost sounds like you're learning who you are

    Spent a cold November contemplating consequences
    End up all alone and only me to blame

    What's yer name again?

    What happened to your car, babe?
    Did you miss a payment?
    You won't be taking up a parking space anymore
    What happened to your jaw, babe?
    Why did someone break it?
    So you're not telling fables with your face anymore?
    Where did your posse go, babe?
    Did they ditch a vagrant?
    You won't be needing numbers on your phone anymore
    Why don't you bus on home, babe?
    See if something's vacant
    Why ain't your mother setting you a place anymore?

    It feels so good
    It feels so right
    Delighting in the shame you gamed the system for
    You've been declined
    You're on the run
    Did they think that was yours?
    Oops, must've dropped it

    It feels so good
    It feels so right
    Don't look me up
    If you survive
    It feels so good
    It feels so right
    Don't look me up
    If you survive
  • - Denial
    I don't care what the doctor says
    Or what's written on his little chart
    He must have made a mistake somewhere
    We need to test again from the start
    I won't listen to the experts
    What the hell do they know anyway
    I know in my heart I'm not losing you
    No matter what they have to say

    I won't acknowledge
    What the tests have or haven't shown
    I'm not going to live
    Without you, on my own

    - Anger
    Fuck this world and fuck everyone on it
    I'll kill all these mother fuckers, let's get demonic
    I'm done with being friendly, I'll no longer play nice
    I don't want to calm down, I don't want advice
    Sick of people trying to tell me shit that's not true
    If they're spewing that shit then we're fucking through
    I'm not even gonna hear it, as far as I'm concerned they're finished
    I'm not fucking living in a world without you in it

    I won't stand down
    My flight response has flown
    I refuse to fucking live
    Without you, on my own

    - Bargaining
    There has to be another way
    There has to be a chance
    Just tell me what I need to do
    I'll do anything you ask
    I'll pay any amount that's due
    I don't care if I have to starve
    I'll pray to a God I don't believe
    My flesh is Hers to carve

    I won't give up
    I'll get a million dollar loan
    Don't make me live
    Without you, on my own

    - Depression
    Why bother doing anything
    Nothing matters anymore
    Why bother doing anything
    I'm happy here on the floor
    Why bother doing anything
    50 voicemails on my phone
    Why bother doing anything
    Just please leave me alone

    I won't be missed
    As I fade into the unknown
    What's the point in living
    Without you, on my own

    - Acceptance
    [[Perhaps one day you'll find it]]
  • Pounding like wardrums
    Heart in mouth
    Blood on hands
    Pounding like wardrums
    Among the frail and insincere

    Lights flicker strangely here
    Lights flicker
    Stranger
    I knew your name
    Like moments spell out days

    Time breathes
    Slowly
    Time breathes
    Fragile
    Air within our blood

    Glass shatters in numb fingers
    Stranger
    Still
    Statues in the corner cover their eyes and watch the fear rise
    There is no glimpse of an afterlife

    Lights flicker strangely here
    I remember you said that once
    Eons and seconds ago
    Memories and faded echoes

    Time breathes
    Slowly
    Time breathes
    Fragile
    Air within our blood

    Time stops
    Here
    Ice gripping frozen throats
    Air within our blood
  • Like lighting a fire, renewing, inspiring
    You feel like summer in the middle of a blizzard that I
    Have had to endure, while hoping and praying for better
    You're that better

    You're warmth that seeps beneath my clothes, into my bones, oh
    I've yet to find another hearth that feels so much like home

    Like a cloud that's full pouring when it rains
    In the middle of the desert
    You're a welcomed hurricane,
    Come to shake up heaven
    And in you I see (I see I see)
    A person really worth something to me

    Rare as a cold day in July, yet equally refreshing
    Breaking the stranglehold of spiraling fever and the dark
    Midnight sparkles from the stars you've put in the sky
    Enchanted to know you, the eloquence flits from my mind

    You're the shiver running up my spine, and this time
    I'm caught unsteady, gazing as you make the sun and moon realign

    Like the first light gleaming
    When the morning follows night
    In the middle of the darkness
    You're a welcome ray of light
    Come to gift the present
    And in you I see
    A person really worth something to me
  • Emotion: Paranoia

    He knew something changed
    Hid eyes were closed but he knew he couldn't look
    He held his eyes shut but he just had to look
    and now he knew

    It's in the walls, It's in the corners
    It's in the ground, beneath the floorboards
    It's in the ceiling, he sees it now
    It's in the house, It's all around
    He never noticed - It's all around
    But now he knows and he can't go on
    It's within him, It's within you
    It's within you, gone through and through

    And it could go away
    and you'd be gone, all of us just gone

    It's like a glass floor above a ravine
    And now he sees it, he sees the fall
    The clock is ticking, who knows how long
    The clock is ticking, we'll all be gone

    It's in the walls, it's in the corners
    It's in the ground it goes beyond us
    It's in the Earth it's in the Sun
    It's all around and it'll be gone
    And just like that that floor is gone
    The ravine opens, swallows all
    It's within us, It's within you
    It's within you, gone through and through

    And it's going away
    and you'll be gone, all of us just gone
    And it's going away
    and we'll be gone, all of us just gone


  • In the shadows of the night
    I look for my next prey
    What comes into my sight
    Won't see the light of day

    Bone and steel
    Bring pain and death
    Mercy kill
    Who is next?



    Bodies broken
    Twisting pain
    I am drunk on
    The taste of hate

    Utter horror
    Reflected in my blade
    Savour my
    Taste of hate


    Claws tearing at the flesh
    Sculpture sublime
    My world dressed in red
    In death I'm alive


    Bodies broken
    Twisting pain
    I am drunk on
    The taste of hate

    Utter horror
    Reflected in my blade
    Witness my
    Taste of hate

    Let us revel in
    The taste of hate



    The adversary struggles
    Knife grinds against the bone
    I'm dealt the final blow
    Soon I'll be no more

    Utter horror
    Seared into my brain
    Now you too know
    The taste of hate
  • Verse 1
    All I see around me are little plastic bats
    I think that’s a carved pumpkin wearing a wizards hat
    There’s skulls decorating every wall and floor
    It’s not really scary but I find me wanting more

    Pre-Chorus
    You didn't have to but I'm honored
    Happy “Halloween?” to you too
    It's not even my birthday
    But I can tell you did this all just for me

    Chorus
    Don't really like pumpkins or orange
    Not really a fan of the bats
    Guess I can dance with the vampires?
    Is that Frankensteins monster?
    I thought he was a myth

    Look at me, I’m regal in purple
    Have you ever met a real royal witch?
    Come along, my darling familiar
    You’re dressed for the occasion
    This is my celebration!

    Verse 2
    They've told me those white sheets are phantoms
    Have these people never seen a ghost?
    I still welcome all these creatures to my party
    After all, I should be a gracious host!

    Thank you for throwing this party
    You really didn't have to!

    On occasion I do like a little bit of the scaries
    From time to time I can enjoy a fright night
    But this "Halloween" thing is much more my vibe
    Lets all be spooky? spoopy? tonight!

    Chorus 2
    Don't really like pumpkins or orange
    Not really a fan of the bats
    I'll go talk to the superheroes?
    Is that Cleopatra?
    I thought she was a myth

    Look at me, I’m regal in purple
    Have you ever met a real royal witch?
    Come along, my darling familiar
    You’re dressed for the occasion
    This is my celebration!

    Chorus 3
    Don't really like pumpkins or orange
    Not really a fan of the bats
    Guess I can dance with the vampires?
    Is that Frankensteins monster?
    I thought he was a myth

    Look at me, I’m regal in purple
    Have you ever met a real royal witch?
    Come along, my darling familiar
    You’re dressed for the occasion
    This is my celebration!
  • On the darkest night in the realm
    The castle of legend comes back for another round
    Is it Dracula back at the helm
    His symphony is playing hear its ringing sound

    The time has come
    There will be a confrontation
    The curse, the curse, it's destiny
    A fight for eternity
    Fighting eternally

    Is it real or an illusion
    Who is really on the throne are they under a spell
    No way to stop the resurrection
    Under mind control this will be the last farewell

    The time has come
    There will be a confrontation
    The curse, the curse, it's destiny
    A fight for eternity

    Deep inside the castle keep
    Dracula awakes from his sleep
    Crushing humanity is his goal
    Who can save all their souls

    Just one can stop this horror
    Only one can be the restorer
    The half-vampire vampire hunter
    Destined to fight his father

    It's in the hands of Alucard
    Breaking through past the guard
    Only one can live in such pain
    The castle crumbles only ruins remain

    Deep inside the castle keep

  • Hey, baby, here I am, mourning black,
    Reaping all your friends in your memory
    Got talking to the preacher, scolding me
    I’m loving every girl with my misery
    Penny for a pound, wrapped up in your shroud,
    And I’m pounding all the pulpits as I shout aloud
    Girl, you got me shaking, with that plastic dress,
    Come and help me work through my Halloween mess (ooh!)

    Chorus:
    Save my soul,
    Chase these spirits away,
    Diagnosis blue, nurse won’t you please
    Have me in your care all night

    I stared down the devil, drank him under to hell,
    Danced with an apple crying cause I rang his bell,
    Kissed Maleficent and Teddy Roosevelt,
    Girl, I need you now, hit me with that belt
    I’m high as a kite, can nearly feel you tonight
    Without you baby, gonna find a way to be right
    Kim Kardashian is beckoning, I gotta go
    Gotta put these feelings where I don’t want to know

    Chorus:
    Save my soul,
    Chase these spirits away,
    Diagnosis blue, nurse won’t you please
    Have me in your care all night

    Tonight,
    Tonight,
    Oh please nurse, I’m hurting
    Loving tonight, all right!

    Reap my soul, oh yeah
    Chase my blue away, oh yeah

    Little monsters knock at your door
    And the friends you've made under your bed
    Want to rear their ugly heads

    Yes it's that time of the year again
    When there are plenty of food in the room
    When kids are in cute costumes
    And the creatures in the closet want to eat said children

    Out of their graves the corpses crawl
    Cos it's the most happiest season of all

    It's the most wonderful time of the year
    Halloween is finally here
    It's time for tricks, treats, parties, and fear
    The time to take your friends out to dinner
    And then have your friends for dinner
    It's the most wonderful time of the year

    It's that time of the year once more
    When we embrace the spooky and gore
    The time to celebrate the grotesque
    And have a drink with the monsters under your desk

    Cos it's the most happiest season of all

    It's the most wonderful time of the year
    Halloween is finally here

  • Hear the scream

    Nothing left in this wasteland
    Cold tundras and hot desert sands
    No feeling in these cold dead hands
    Crushing defeat can't even stand
    Apocalypse skies are turning tides
    Too late to get off this ride
    The ones left are all on the same side
    All they want is somewhere to hide

    Prepare for something immortal this way it comes
    The creatures scurry away immune to your guns
    Disintegrating, fracturing, dropping limbs one by one
    Beware beware beware or surely you will be done
    Run run run run run run run

    Oozing is a matter of fashion
    Showing off the best ectoplasm
    Green is the glow of our passion
    See all those faces turn ashen
    No need to hide there's no sunlight
    Basking in the constant midnight
    Soaking it all up is a delight
    Nevermore living out of sight

    Seeking flesh that's so sweet
    Spongy cortex folds are complete
    Bodies will pile up on the streets
    From any viewpoint it's all meat
    Dive right into tender tissue
    Feeding time for the undead crew

    Prepare for something immortal this way it comes
    The creatures scurry away immune to your guns
    Disintegrating, fracturing, dropping limbs one by one
    Beware beware beware or surely you will be done
  • Hair

    I sit here by myself
    and I am all alone
    There's someone calling
    on the phone
    I look down at the number
    And it is me



    My own voice says "you better beware"
    somebody, somewhere is touching my hair
    I look into the mirror but my reflection is gone
    Something has really gone terribly wrong
    somebody, somewhere wails out in depair
    It sounds like myself But this cannot be
    Somebody I can't see starts laughing with glee
    Something is whispering, I think that it's me

    I turn around
    but no one is there
    Fingers once again
    running down through my hair

    Am I
    Losing my mind, I
    look in the mirror
    a figure appears



    It starts to draw nearer
    there's a ring in my ears
    it's becoming clearer
    eyes brimming with tears
    An incoming phone call
    it's from me!


    Now my voice says "it's time to be scared"
    Again feel the fingers caressing my hair
    I look around quickly but no one is there
    Maybe I'm sleeping, is this a nightmare?
    My body is tingling, I am hyper aware
    The mirror bound figure begins to just stare
    It looks like it's me, it's hard to conceive
    Give it a pinch - so real I struggle to breathe

    I try to run
    but my legs, they won't move
    no escape from
    what must be the truth

    I am
    somebody else,
    tormented
    the ghoul is myself.

    Makes my ice cold blood rush

  • She (Takes My Pain Away)

    Out on a moonless night like tonight
    The wind is eating my ego alive, slowly
    I never doubted myself
    Until I turned into somebody else, and heard them
    What they said about me

    My mind and feet are racing
    My pride and costume trailing in the mud
    Like so much spilled blood
    (Blood! Blood!)

    Blunder leads me down a road
    Dark and close

    And as these trees close in on me
    I hear my name on rustling leaves
    A breath of chill passed over my spine
    I feel the hand in mine

    She walks without a shiver of sound
    But she keeps what she found
    Oh, she takes my pain away, takes my pain away
    Watches until the frigid hour
    While you're all alone she says,
    "Give that pain away, give that pain…"

    I knew I drew her in like a flame
    This candle wick of my burning shame, gravely
    I dare not move but in step
    But I don't care to leave her stride yet, her glide
    A kindred soul beside

    She looks into my eyes and studies right through
    I'm locked into the stare; I can see through hers too
    The air is cutting cold, but she's holding on
    I'm going to forget; get gone

    She walks without a shiver of sound
    But she keeps what she found
    Oh, she takes my pain away, takes my pain away
    Watches until the frigid hour
    While you're all alone she says,
    "Give that pain away, give that pain…
    …away"
    She walks, waits, and listens
  • Oh how I burned at each mistake
    Knuckles bruised, rapped awake
    Your poison coursed in my veins
    Heavier than mortal chains

    Hung myself from the gallows tree
    I sold my soul to buy your dreams
    I cried in the night, I cried for more
    For your shadow to lay dark my door

    I gave it all
    In the night
    I gave it all
    I gave you my life

    I crossed myself and hoped to die
    Like I was some sacrifice
    A willing sacrifice
    A willing sacrifice

    I watched each domino fall
    Felt every pin pierce the doll
    Forever cold in the burning light
    To these blue black eyes

    Still taste the ash on my tongue
    Every curse held in my lungs
    Barely choking out the notes
    The bible belt around my throat

    I gave it all
    In the night
    I gave it all
    I gave you my life

    I crossed myself and hoped to die
    Like I was some sacrifice
    A willing sacrifice
    A willing sacrifice

    Hung myself from the gallows tree
    I sold my soul to buy your dreams
  • Your sweet desire first lit this fire
    But it’s my turn now to burn it down
    October winds will send you higher
    One match to catch the devil’s crown

    Your laugh a gasp so quickly turned
    So like the knife beneath your ribs
    Your smile and guile so quickly burned
    The night alight with what we lived

    Now I lay you down to rest
    Until there’s only ashes left

    Look at how we all fall down
    Your lies could make the world go ’round
    Fade to black, the last dissolve
    Not sorry, love, to burn it all

    Your fear it tastes so tender dear
    Like marmalade and summer snow
    The flames reclaim your every tear
    As I bask in the last ember glow

    Your cries and lies full silence now
    As fire consumes the liar whole
    There’s beauty to this crackling bow
    I take to rake your tattered soul

    Now I lay you down to rest
    Until there’s only ashes left

    Look at how we all fall down
    Not sorry, love, to torch the ground

    Your desolation made immolation
    The heat a treat for my trick heart
    Now dust to dust your desperation
    I always finish what I start

    Now I lay you down to rest
    Until there’s only ashes left
  • Grab your costume and your makeup brush
    Tonight you come as you aren't
    Put on a cape and cover your face
    Now it's time to play your part
    Here you can be anyone
    Gain a new identity
    Cast off the shackles of your boring life
    Just take my hand and follow me

    All you've done
    And all you are
    Doesn't mean shit
    Beneath a mask

    No one sees you for who you think you are
    No one knows you or where you've been so far
    Nothing matters when you hide your face away
    The real mask is the one that you wear everyday
    (that you wear everyday)

    Leave all preconceived notions
    At the door where they belong
    Take a new name if you wish
    The new you can do no wrong

    Tonight, you are no one
    Tonight, you are everyone
    Tonight, you are legion
    Tonight, the night is yours

    Every chore
    And every task
    Can be forgotten
    Beneath the mask

    No one sees you for who you think you are
    No one knows you or where you've been so far
    Nothing matters when you hide your face away
    The real mask is the one that you wear everyday
    (that you wear everyday)
  • To Dust

    In the pale moonlight you can’t see me
    As I follow, shadows near
    Calmly waiting, salivating
    Turn your fears to, something real

    In the autumn winds, leaves are dying
    As your time fades, so shall you
    Turn your pulsing neck as I glimpse your soul
    My dark corpse warms, my dead heart tolls


    Invite me in
    I want more than just your blood
    Free me from sin
    Stab a stake through my heart
    Tear me apart
    From demon to dust

    In the dawn of night I am stalking
    Tasting victims, longing for you
    As I roam these grounds to the ends of time
    Only living, for the dying

    Though immortal I welcome death
    To be held by you, warmth upon my breast
    Unholy lie, forbidden bite
    If I turn you, will you burn true?

    All my ancestors and the names long passed
    I disavow them, forsaken them at last
    I just want to be the creature you dream of
    Give up the bat wings, to become a dove

    Invite me in
    I want more than just your blood
    Free me from sin
    Stab a stake through my heart
    Tear me apart
    From demon to dust
  • I saw myself on the evening news
    Grey suit, blue tie... Didn't recognise me at all
    The things I said... I had to turn it off
    Just empty bullshit.. Isn't that just what we fought?
    They say that pride comes before the fall
    ... I guess you can't see the pride, when you're in the middle of it all..

    --------------SOLO-----------

    Where did it all get so lost?
    Somewhere along the way, we must have lost the plot
    Let's start again, forget about this all -
    Just you and me against the world with all its wrongs
  • Echoes crown the fire
    Shadows drip into my eyes
    A timpani heart
    A feathering drum
    Descending into wakefulness

    Whispers graze the water
    Shivering into madness
    A sorrow of night
    The gloaming embers
    Drowning into bitterness

    The holy unfathomed
    Swirling down the drain
    Take this down
    Your number's up
    Crawling through the wilderness

    Descending
    Drowning
    Crawling
    Down

    Take this hollow hold
    Take this narrow soul
    Take this fallow mold
    Take this
    Take this to your altar now

    Descending into wakefulness now

    All that I have
    Is what I need to have
    All that I see
    Is here in front of me
    All that I hear
    Is what I need to hear
    Everywhere I go
    I bring nothing, but it's everything

    Chorus:
    No fear of missing out
    (No fear of missing out)

    (All that I have)
    It is nothing, and everything


    Verse 2:
    All that I am
    Is out in the open
    All that's inside

    Lighten your burden
    Everywhere I go
    I bring nothing, yet it's everything

    Chorus:

  • Sweetheart if you want to get rid of the couch
    I can live with that
    Darling, if you never want to turn the lights on again
    I can live with that
    I can live (with that), I can live with that

    And who needs?
    Something as simple as working TV
    If you don't, then I don't
    And who needs?
    To have someone to hold, to have and to hold
    Well, not me

    Angel,
    I've gone and got rid of the sofa it was bothering me too
    I much prefer laying on the floor, don't you?
    This house might be the last thing I'll follow on through

    I'm sure your insistence will get us there eventually
    But for now I'll leave this one be
  • Mother Nature’s child…

    Wintry sighs, amongst the barren trees
    In black and grey, world comes alive
    Dead leaves twirl to owls’ beating wings
    Critters skitter and insects buzz around the light

    Lie in wait, lie in wait
    The trap is set to climax
    Come to me, your final fate
    I only roar when I take my bite

    Here they lie, a solemn scene
    Amongst the chorus of cricket cries
    Rain upon the moss and bark,
    Nostrils full of need tonight

    Shiver, adrenaline coursing
    Marveling in majesty
    Dare to breathe, teeth reveals
    The might of Gaia’s delight
    Her might…
  • Falling
    Heaven crawling toward the bough
    Immolate
    Your secret’s scratching to get out

    Escape
    Running faster from the light
    Hesitate
    Keep me close for one more night

    Deny
    Take your broken armor down
    Lullaby
    Settle with your needle crown

    Heartache
    Better beaten down than back
    Complicate
    Resurrect the burning flak

    Frozen
    Rolling through the fallen mire
    Desolate
    Take us all a little higher

    Starlight
    Turning clean the tattered soul
    Redeeming
    You were never going to make me whole

    Unknown
    Chasing glimpses of the rain
    No delay
    Holding up where you have lain

    Your lies
    Carry me to higher ground
    No disguise
    Breathless here forever bound

  • The last ships leave today
    They carry the annual graves
    The one I know is inside
    On their last ride

    And as I see the capsule
    I see their face again
    Only to be sent on the
    The shuttle for the final send

    They are looking outside
    Seeing the red sky
    Seeing how time flies
    l’isolement, l’isolement
    Searching for someone
    Searching for...

  • Set my mind to waste today
    And chase away all the plans I made
    Burn some sage to cleanse the space
    Till the calendar's erased

    Gonna listen to the rain on the tin roof
    Slip some 80 proof, a litle gin and juice
    read good news till my worries reduce,
    and my shoulders feel unweighed

    Anything I got wound up just unwinds
    And I believe I'm feeling fine

    Nothing going on
    Nothing going down
    Just caught a case of nothing
    that must be going round

    So at ease, I lost my mind
    probably slipped behind the couch with the keys that I can't find
    Nowhere I need to be, I got the time,
    Snow on the TV, So I open the blinds

    just me and the breeze in trees this evening
    Don't need a reason to enjoy the season
    And kick my feet and recline
    little moonshine in the moonshine

    Anything I got wound up just unwinds
    And I believe I'm feeling fine

    Nothing going on
    Nothing going down
    Just caught a case of nothing
    that must be going round

    Chex on the beats Cicadas got the rhythm
    Rest for 17 I'd be right there with 'em
    Come back with a bang Wont know what hit ya
    Only way to stay sane is to love the way you're livin'

    Gotta take the time make everyday sublime
    the ordinary extortionary And to yourself be kind
    Cause I know the road to hell is lined
    with every rose you didn't smell and every stone you grind

    Nothing going on
    Nothing going down
    Just caught a case of nothing
    that must be going round

    Nothing going on
    Nothing going down
    Just caught a case of nothing
    that must be going round

    My walls, my house, my home

    My pills, my weed, my coke
    My great highs and darkest lows
    My everything – all turning rotten

    My family, friends and bros
    My great loves and random hoes

    I slid my hand
    Into the pocket of my jeans
    And I played with a piece of lint
    Rolling it back and forth between my thumb and middle finger
    I squeezed and pressed it until it changed shape
    Became different but still the sum of all its parts
    All of the other tiny pieces of dust and cotton and dirt and thread and flecks of skin
    It started as nothing until it possessed everything
    And so I rolled it back and forth between my thumb and middle finger
    Back and forth
    Back and forth
    Until it stopped existing
    Just the way it should have been all along

  • Vers

    Et juste comme ça je me trouve à la fin de la route
    Mon coeur s’déchire dans mes mains pour mieux accommoder la fourche
    Le choix est là, je ne peux pas le faire, un lâche, peur de choisir
    Figé comme une tapette entre ces putains de pensées et mes désirs

    J’implose dans l’introspection, une action vers l’indirection
    Je m’noie dans les ténèbres ambigus, plombées d'indiscrétions mises sous pression
    Pourtant je flotte, inutile même dans l’art maudit de noyer
    Le brouillon mort de Maupassant, passant au mème pour exister

    Pilule bleue, pour ne plus respirer
    Pilule blanche, pour être sûr de tout oublier
    Pilule rouge, mon coeur n'arrête pas de saigner
    Mais je suis là toujours veillant l’indécision dans la trachée

    Pilule noire, je perds ma lucidité
    Je me bourre comme un drogué pour m’étouffer d’anxiété
    Mais les monstres sont toujours là, en rêves comme en réalité
    Car que le monstre c’est moi, et aucune voie me laissera m’échapper

    Pre Chorus

    Je suis perdu, enclos par mes murs pervers
    Dans cette noirceur intime que j’erre solitaire

    Allume-moi une flamme pour que je sois redécouvert
    Pour que je vois une dernière fois tout se défaire


    Refrain

    Je cherche la raison
    Cachée dans le délire
    Je tombe dans un néant duquel je ne peux plus ressortir

    J’évite les décisions
    L’évasion de l’avenir
    Je souffrirai, mes rêves vivants, que de risquer de les détruire

    Vers



    Resserré dans ma cave j’essaie de suivre mon Instinct
    Mais la mort sera toujours la seule promesse du destin
    La solitude qui me dénude, rude comme une pute impudique
    Demeurera mon seul copain dans mon voyage incertain.

    Je me submerge dans l’océan mon souffle s’expire peu à peu
    Je vois le monde en noir et blanc, entre mon corps rouge et mon ame bleu
    La renaissance d’une vigilance que j’avais longtemps oublié
    Une émergence de la pénombre, une inspiration outrée

    Respiration exagérée, volatile comme le volcan
    Le ciel de l’aube s’est présenté avec son aquarelle de sang
    Je vise devant, je vire à droite, précipitant en reculant
    L’incertitude qui m’a ancré m’empêche de voler

    Pourtant, la chaîne s’est relâchée
    Emprisonné entre ces barrières de verre satanées
    l’hiver suffoque le printemps
    Les yeux ouverts je me dévale vers l’enfer qui m’attend
    Face à ma réflexion, mon ombre jointe, revolver à ma tempe

    Prechorus

    Je suis perdu, enclos par mes murs pervers
    Dans cette noirceur intime que j’erre solitaire

    Allume-moi une flamme pour que je sois redécouvert

    English

    And just like that I find myself at the end of the road
    My heart tears in my hands to accommodate the fork
    The Choice is there I can't do it like a loser Scared to choose
    Frozen like a staller Between my fucking thoughts and my desires

    I implode in the introspection An action towards indirection
    I fall in the ambiguous darkness Letting buy indiscretion put under pressure
    However I float Useless even in the damned art of drowning
    The dead drafts of maupassant passed into memes to exist

    Blue pill to no longer
    White pill to be sure to forget everything
    Red pill I don't stop bleeding
    But I am here of a present indecision in my trachea

    Black pill I Lose my lucidity
    Je get fucked like a junkie to choke myself with anxiety
    But the monsters are still there in dreams and in reality
    Because the monster is me and no path will let me escape myself.

    Pre chorus

    Im lost enclosed in my perverted walls
    In this intimate blackness where I wander alone
    Light me up a flame so that I can be rediscovered
    So that I can see, one last time, everything fall apart

    Chorus

    I'm searching for reason
    Hiding in delusion
    I fall into an abyss from Which I cannot come back out of

    I avoid décisions
    The evasion of the future
    I'll suffer, my dreams still alive, rather than risking to destroy them

    Verse

    Squeezed into my cave I tried to follow my instinct
    But death will be the only promise of destiny
    The solitude that undresses me rough like an impudic where
    Will remain my only friend in my uncertain journey

    I submerge myself into the ocean, my breath expires little by little
    I see the world In black-and-white between my Red body and my blue soul
    A Renaissance of vigilance That I had forgotten long ago
    An emergence of the depths An emergence of the shadows, an outraged inspiration

    Exaggerated Respiration, volatile like a volcano
    The dawn sky presented itself in its watercolor of blood
    I aim ahead, swerve to the right, rushing by going backwards
    The incertitude that has anchored me prevents me from flying

    However the chain released itself
    Imprisoned between these satanic glass barriers
    The winter suffocates the spring
    Eyes open i charge towards the hell that awaits me
    Faced with my reflection, my joint shadow, revolver to my temple.

    Prechorus

    Im lost enclosed in my perverted walls
    In this intimate blackness where I wander alone
    Light me up a flame so that I can be rediscovered
    So that I can see, one last time, everything fall apart

    Chorus

    I'm searching for reason
    Hiding in delusion
    I fall into an abyss from Which I cannot come back out of

    I avoid décisions
    The evasion of the future
    I'll suffer, my dreams still alive, rather than risking to destroy them

    (verse)

    les demi-lunes sous les yeux
    à bout de course, système nerveux

    brancard chiffon, dans le dortoir
    quand ça s'arrête, ça s'arrête pas
    quand la fatigue leur pêtera

    tu disais, ça ira mieux
    quand jenserai plus là

    (break)

    Ich bin verzweifelt, denn ich seh' dich jeden Tag,
    Das Leben verlässt dich, jetzt bist du nicht mehr stark,
    Die Flamme erlischt, doch das Feuer verbrennt dich,
    Und ich erkenn' endlich: Hier geht es nicht um mich!

    Wie viele Tage, wie viele Wochen,
    Habe ich mich letztendlich vor der Wahrheit verkrochen?
    Du willst geh'n und ich muss jetzt für dich da sein!
    Du musst geh'n und ich bin dann allein.

    tes hurlements

    sacrifice sans récompense
    certes la vie est dure

    solutions violentes

  • (PS this is written in American)

    No English Rule!
    -----------

    It was the American Revolution
    A Secret Committee of Correspondence
    Find help with a Europe Solution
    Benjamin Franklin wrote to France

    Secret agents overseas
    There will be no English rule
    With Lafayette's expertise
    There will be no English rule
    Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
    There will be no English rule
    We won't follow British laws
    There will be no English rule

    France hated England
    lost the 7 years war
    Revenge was in their plan
    Lost colonies on US shores

    After the Declaration
    Ben Franklin sent overseas
    Silas Deane's covert operation
    Secret help for the colonies

    Will France's foreign minister, Vergennes
    Stick to his promise and to his pledge
    Washington lost New York Campaign
    Lafayette comes in to help regain

    Pro-American sentiment
    Was sweeping over France
    Vergennes attempts an arrangement
    with Spain who wanted a chance

    For California and Florida
    US starts winning on the field
    Washington won Battle of Saratoga
    England wants a fast peace deal

    Secret agents overseas
    There will be no English rule
    With Lafayette's expertise
    There will be no English rule
    Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
    There will be no English rule
    We won't follow British laws
    There will be no English rule

    France couldn't wait
    Spain backpedaling
    So they threw their weight
    behind the Americans
    in February 1778
    Treaties of alliance
    were made consummate -
    American and French defiance

    France recognized the USA
    There was also a special term
    That neither side could pull away
    War with Britain is reaffirmed

    Others could join the battle line
    alliance (other countries like Spain)
    Spain joined in 1779
    And then the French Navy came
    With more troops, arms, and ammunition
    The fleet was able to win the
    Key ports and water positions
    Continental Army won in Virginia

    NO ENGLISH!
    Their rule is done
    NO ENGLISH!
    They're on the run
    NO ENGLISH!
    With French defenders
    NO ENGLISH!
    It's the game ender
    NO ENGLISH!
    British surrender!
    NO ENGLISH!
    NO ENGLISH!

    in 1782 Britain concedes
    The victory they both desired
    But in France it's sown the seed
    For its monarchy, it has backfired

    Secret agents overseas
    There will be no English rule
    With Lafayette's expertise
    There will be no English rule
    Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
    There will be no English rule
    We won't follow British laws
    There will be no English rule!
  • les roues écrasent la route
    gonflés par la rage
    une flamme vacille, parmis tes doutes

    s'écoule, notre millénaire
    sans émotions

    Les chats, c'est ma câme

    Et consume mes rêves

    Comme mes larmes s'achève

    Sur mon palais s'éteint la flamme
    La feuille interdite
    les doigts peu à peu se crament
    de mots illicites

    Is this not the city of love
    Where the wine and music flow
    Beneath grand cathedral spires
    Scent of chocolate on the wind

    N’est-ce pas la cité de l’amour
    Où coulent la musique et le vin
    Dessous les grands spires de la cathédrale
    L'arôme du chocolat dans (sur?) le vent

    Have I taken a wrong turn
    All the traffic, all the crowds
    Am I just another fool
    Caught in the tourist trap

    Ai-je pris un mauvais tour
    Tout le trafic, toute la foule
    Suis-je qu’une autre conne
    Pris dans le piège du touriste

    Chorus

    To trade the dream of dreams
    For something so mundane
    It’s just about enough
    To make me go insane

    Échanger le rêve des rêves
    Pour quelque chose si banal
    C’est presque juste assez
    À me rendre malade


    Verse 2

    Is this not the city of art
    Of food and history so rich
    Why all the trash and all the noise
    Tacky keepsakes everywhere



    N’est-ce pas la cité de l’art
    De bouffe et d’une histoire si riche
    Tous les sons et couleurs se brouillent
    J’ai fait une grosse bêtise


    Chorus 2

    To trade the dream of dreams
    For something so mundane
    It’s just about enough
    To make me go insane

    Échanger le rêve des rêves
    Pour quelque chose si banal
    C’est presque juste assez
    À me rendre malade

    To trade the dream of dreams
    For tacky tourist stores
    In the middle of a city
    Nothing less and nothing more

    Échanger le rêve des rêves
    Pour des petits magasins
    Au centre d’une cité
    Rien de plus rien de moins
    Bridge

    Was this not once the dream of kings
    The poet’s paradise
    Now cigarette smoke everywhere
    And where did my wallet go
    Where did my wallet go
    Where did my wallet go
    Stop, thief!

    N’était-ce pas une fois le rêve des rois
    Le paradis du poète
    Maintenant la fumée des cigarettes partout
    Où est parti mon porte-feuille
    Où est parti mon porte-feuille
    Où est parti mon porte-feuille
    Arrê tez, voleur!

  • [Verse]
    Tu m'as vu le genou à terre, aggripé aux barrières... fatigué
    L'air grave mais les traits solaires, t'as changé l'atmosphère ... sans forcer
    Une main, une oreille, une voix, une épaule parfois... C'était tout
    Tout ce que j'avais pour moi, il y a quinze ans déjà... Des à-coups

    Tu ne sais plus qui je suis, c'est la faute à la vie
    Mais il reste ce flambeau que t'as fait de tes mots
    Il vacille encore

    [Pre-Chorus]
    A la frontière de l'âme ... T'as ravivé la flamme
    Dans la force du calme... T'as ravivé la flamme

    [Chorus]
    Leçons d'adolescent, vite oubliées pourtant, faites d'un espoir
    Qui soulagent
    Quand les sourires sont plaies, les promesses sont méfaits, quand tombe le soir
    Un nuage

    J'ai guéri de toutes mes blessures, et si le mal perdure... il s'efface
    Tenir debout n'est plus dur, mon coeur est resté sûr... à sa place
    Tu m'as fait réaliser que ce pouvoir parfait... ce mistral
    Un peu d'humanité même quand tout est pressé, c'est vital
    C'est vital, c'est vital !

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Quand l'ironie se pâme, je raviverai les flammes
    Sans attendre les drames, j'veux les flammes

    [Chorus]
    Leçons d'adolescent, vite oubliées pourtant, faites d'un espoir
    Qui soulagent
    Quand les sourires sont plaies, les promesses sont méfaits, quand tombe le soir
    Un nuage

    [Chorus 2]
    Certitudes d'adulte, survivez aux tumultes, guidez en mer
    Toutes nos voiles
    Par cet air quotidien, qui n'attend pas de fin et jamais ne perd
    Les étoiles

  • The front door locked gate sealed

    They push another letter through my door
    With warnings of fire ash and war
    They push another letter through my door
    All the lies of the world keep coming forth

    They push another letter through my door
    With warnings of fire ash and war
    They push another letter through my door
    All the lies of the world keep coming forth

    They'll come soon as the letters say
    They'll come soon to take it all away

    They push another letter through my door
    All the lies of the world keep coming forth

  • I saw you laying there
    Out in the open air
    Still barely breathing
    And heavily heaving
    Out for me

    What else could I have done,
    But lay you down in the sun
    Is this all a trip
    On the möbius strip
    We call life?
    I can't understand

    Rest in the nook of the trees
    Rest in your blanket of leaves
    And take your sleep

    I did all I could do
    Did I disappoint you
    Is my good name mud
    Tell me, is your blood
    On my hands?
    I can't understand

    Rest in the nook of the trees
    Rest in your blanket of leaves
    And take your sleep

    Rest in the nook of the trees
    Rest in your blanket of leaves
    And take your sleep

    So lie down in the pouring rain
    And rejoin the heavens again
    And nevermore weep
  • You have to know the all is one
    Nothing but friction, blood in the sun
    Beginning and the end of time
    Integrity denied - the cause of fault was mine

    I'm not able to expose
    The loss of hope I now forsake
    Within myself I decompose
    Stress overcomes, I see the break
    The end of time begins right now
    and crafty lies come from the snake
    So sublime, holier-than thou
    The treasure's soul lies in the break
    -----------
    It eats its tail and swallows whole
    Auto-impales, self feeds its soul
    Boundaries, Ouroboros lies
    The netherworlds wont see it die

    The Leviathan's infinity
    is a special creature with no mate,
    Sets on fire divinity
    Believe it transubstantiates
    In its circle is yin and yang
    Immortality reincarnates
    Repetition boomerangs
    Mortality ends in the break
    ------
    Transmigration of the soul
    Living nerves now dead
    Circulation portmanteau
    Mystically inbred

    Jörmungandr, ocean's edge
    Cycloidal fate
    Balance as the cosmos ebbs
    Re-embodied fate
    So the spiral spins us withal
    The ring brings us awake
    New consciousness, it does recall
    By triggering the break
  • I've come to the conclusion
    That all that surrounds
    Is naught but illusion

    Stripped of all emotion
    Lost within crowds
    Chance and outcome stolen
    Conjurers and hounds
    Seeking the familiar
    Confined with bounds
    Smothered in silver
    No hands can hold

    I forfeit
    I have no stake in this
    I forfeit
    I'll have no share in this

    I've come to the conviction
    That the facade of being
    Is naught but restriction

    Cradled by coercion
    Inspiring the doubt
    Protesting the certain
    Second thoughts without
    Walls made of air
    Ceilings of shouts
    Sympathy scarce
    Plots and artifice

    I forfeit
    I have no stake in this
    I forfeit
    I'll have no share in this

    I didn't come here to be found
    I didn't come here
    I didn't come here to be found

    I forfeit
    I have no stake in this
    I forfeit
    I'll have no share in this

    A tired voice in the darkness
    Leads me ever forward
    Never knowing when
    I’ll see my home again

    CHORUS (0:36)

    Will I dream?
    And if I never find my way back home
    Will I be alone?
    Will I be alone?

    VERSE 2 (1:06)
    Just a glimpse in the distance
    An old familiar sight
    Across a trackless waste
    An arctic night
    I’ve finally crossed
    The deserts and seas
    Between home and me

    CHORUS (1:48)
    And if I fall into the arms of sleep
    Will I dream?
    And if I never find my way back home
    Will I be alone?
    Will I be alone?

    VERSE 3 (2:18)
    Not the same place I grew up
    Just a mountain of brick
    Not the place I fell in love
    The scent of failure thick

    Just a place to leave behind
    An old, forgotten grave
    Something makes me decide
    A poison in my brain
    It’s time to leave again

    CHORUS (3:12)
    And if I fall into the arms of sleep
    Will I dream?
    And if I never find my way back home
    Will I be alone?
    Will I be alone?
  • Fighting relentless visions
    Behind a shield of illusion
    What has happened has happened
    After the smoke it's blackened

    Chorus
    In the face of the enemy
    Past conflicts shape what I see
    Long way back to reality
    I turn away, I turn away

    Break free of the monster pack
    Take the test there's no going back
    Caught inside my own trap
    I am the prey

    Verse 1
    Constantly chased by ghosts of my past
    One more time I know it'll be the last
    Again, again and still it never ends
    I see it's me, it's always me

    It's hard to face up to the whole truth
    That all I had I wasted on my youth
    There's nothing left here nothing on the inside
    No more to see, no more to see

    Chorus

    Verse 2
    In front of me the mirror image shatters
    I'll find another if it even matters
    Pick up the pieces seeing what remains here
    Face the fear, I'll face the fear

    Getting away from all these expectations
    Perceiving echoes of my contemplation
    I try to clear my way through all the fog
    It's what I hear, it's all I hear

    Chorus

    Outro
    I am the prey
    I am the prey
    I tried to turn away but I was the prey
    These visions of me
    Left nothing else to see
    I tried to turn away but I was the prey
    Facing up to the fear and all that I hear
    I am the preeeeeey
    I am the prey
  • With your ear to the ground
    With your hands on the crown
    With the stars going out
    Your eyes are dim

    With my back to the clock
    With my head like a rock
    With my mind in the fog
    My vision’s clear

    The end is here
    You have to leave
    You have to leave

    I will let you down
    You will take the blame
    Baby, we can’t let it happen
    Oh

    In the still of the night
    This godlike solitude
    And there is nothing
    Your mind can’t do

    Like the moon in the wires
    You can only get higher
    And you want me
    To be there too
    But I’m not you

    So leave me now
    Just walk away
    You belong to heaven

    Oh

    I will let you down
    You will take the blame
    Baby you can’t help me
    Help me
    Oh

    So leave me now
    Just walk away
    You belong to heaven
    Heaven
    And I’ll get in the way

    I will let you down
    You will take the blame
    Baby you can’t have it
    Have it
    Any other way

    Baby you can’t help me
    Baby we can’t let it happen
    Baby you can’t have it

    I’ve got what you want

    Loud and focused
    Proud and righteous
    Living on the knife’s edge

    Until my throat is raw

    Proud and righteous
    Living on the knife’s edge
    But I’ll never concede that what you believe
    Is anything more than a fantasy


    This soapbox ain't strong enough
    For you to pile your lies on
    Yet you keep stackin em up
    As they all stand in awe

    Proud and righteous
    Living on the knife’s edge
    But I’ll never concede that what you believe

  • Oh to be young
    To be young and unprepared
    To be running from monsters, to be always running scared
    All created by the fear of the unknown
    The fear of failure looming in as doors start to close

    Oh to be young
    To be wild and young and free
    To build up scars, pains that turn to remedies
    And all absolve, all our failures to memories
    We’re only young this once


    Looking for young liberties from reasons
    No responsibility
    It’s out of season
    Celebrating our youth
    Doing what feels right
    Finding our own truths
    Staying up all night
    Free from reasons
    Who needs em
    Who needs em
    Who needs em?


    Am I still cool?
    I’m just trying to be loved
    I’ve played the fool, hoping that would be enough
    But that’s just fuel to be driving me off the deep end
    While I sit here and I pretend this is the pinnacle of life

    Am I young?
    I’ve already grown so much
    I write this song, hoping it’ ll cheer me up
    Will I belong? In this body where I’m not yet me, I’m singing so I can believe
    These words I think I mean

  • You want to live where I want too
    The great expanse and an infinite view
    So beautiful it hurts and hurts and hurts...

    You...rising into the sky
    You....falling deep in your mind

    Can you hear your mother's voice as she sings?
    Floating over bad memories with impossible wings

    I want to live where nothing dies
    Endless mountains forming into open skies
    So beautiful it's laughable

    Me... falling into a dream
    Me... drifting into serene

    Can you hear your mother's voice as she sings?
    Floating over bad memories with impossible wings

    Floating, floating, floating, floating

    And watch the sun rise
    The oceans reflecting
    The tears in your eyes
    What was won here
    What was lost

    The flame of victory burns so high

  • He was a pure blur
    As I slipped into the future
    At the speed of fading light
    Upon a steed named nightmare

    We fall before rising
    With the moon and tides confiding
    I'm trying to bind my body and mind
    But The Sandman calls

    Eyes move rapidly
    Ears hear hounds howl rabidly
    Alarms are set in tomorrow's stone
    But tonight I am a pure blur

    I climb up the timeline
    Third eye sees while I am blind
    Although I'm weak I reach the peak
    The Sandman greets me

    He is torn and tattered
    Gently waves an amber banner
    Whispers long forgotten knowledge
    His words a sonic blur

    Lulled to sleep by night
    Awoken from a dream by daylight
    I'm dragged by a ghastly nag
    Crashing into the morning
  • Snow fell as she poured the tea.
    We spoke small words and read the leaves
    You’re as good as gone, she said
    As good as gone
    Just an echo lingering
    You’re as good as gone
    Just an echo in the air
    Just an echo in the air

    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping now

    We walked through my dreams unfolding
    Between the scenes and stolen sleep
    Twisted sheets I’ve gone to pieces
    The hollow shell cold and deep
    As the world unraveled.
    She unraveled me
    She unraveled me

    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping now

    Between alabaster mountains
    Sinking through the blackest blue
    One drink from the fountain
    Still sinking into you

    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping without dreaming?
    Are we sleeping now.
  • Lost out in the wilderness
    With nothing but the light of the stars
    So I'm using them to light my way
    But I'm overwhelmed by how many there are

    But I've got you by my side
    There may be monsters hiding here but we don't have to hide

    We don't have to be afraid
    We can keep the monsters at bay
    We'll find our way somehow
    If we keep walking, one day it'll all work out

    The mountain looms in the distance
    A challenge no one should climb alone
    And when we reach that mountain top
    Together we will see the way home

    And then we can stand tall
    The monsters will be scared of us and they'll run from our call

    We don't have to be afraid
    We can keep the monsters at bay
    We'll find our way somehow
    If we keep walking, one day it'll all work out
    We live in an imperfect world
    But at the mountain top we're free
    Happiness is locked in imperfect chains
    And baby I have got an imperfect key

    I've got you by my side
    There may be monsters hiding here but we don't have to hide
    And then we can stand tall
    The monsters will be scared of us and they'll run from our call

    We don't have to be afraid
    We can keep the monsters at bay
    We'll find our way somehow
    If we keep walking, one day it'll all work out
    We don't have to be afraid
    We can keep the monsters at bay
    We'll find our way somehow
    If we keep walking, one day it'll all work out

    It'll all work out
  • Waking to Endings
    by The Epic Mysteries

    Upon a magic ride,
    The world appeared before our eyes
    It flowered blue with me, and we
    Met each day with heaven’s smile
    But now it’s selfish spite
    From reminiscing all this time
    The adult mind, wishing
    For simpler, happy times

    Drowned in regret,
    Don’t want to be where I tried to go
    The path is alone
    And I long for home
    Search for the sun,
    Among the specks of the dark sky
    Eyes wide shut
    I’m what I’ve become

    Every moment, sabotaging
    Is this bleeding what is needed?

    Need to wake up,
    Let this end, begin again
    When we’re old, the world is cold
    So close the door
    You think you’re happy,
    With every next mistake
    One day, the scales fall
    And you wish it all away

    Now I can’t abide,
    The myth of me, I let it slide
    Decrepit one
    Close my eyes and wish for home
    Long to be young again,
    So ignorant, so overdone
    I howl at the moon
    This foreign life, it’s not mine

    Is this the sentence, the ending?
    Or has the nostalgia just begun?


  • I look up and open my eyes
    Dreaming under endless skies
    I see
    You coming to me

    Chorus
    When the roaring thunder arrives
    And the lighting flashing beside
    Let's stay undercover
    We will always have each other

    Verse 2
    Rising up with no doubt
    Shining bright through the blackouts
    When the skies clear
    I'll be with you dear

    Pre-bridge
    Hey now what do you say
    Let me show the reasons to stay

    Bridge
    Falling falling
    The raindrops crawling
    Down the windows to my soul
    Open up open up
    Before the glass breaks up
    Through the cracks formed as they roll
    Dripping and dropping
    Hits my thoughts as it's hopping
    Drowning my thinking as they drum
    Collecting and rolling
    Looking fuzzy obscuring
    It really cannot be undone

    Chorus
    When the roaring thunder arrives
    And the lighting flashing beside
    Let's stay undercover
    We will always have each other

    [solo]

    Verse 3
    Is this really happening
    Finally it's worth seeing
    I've waited so long
    You were so strong

    Chorus
    When the roaring thunder arrives
    And the lighting flashing beside
    Let's stay undercover
    We will always have each other
    Chorus
    When the roaring thunder arrives
    And the lighting flashing beside
    Let's stay undercover
    We will always have each other
  • Verse 1:
    I was on my way to the talent show
    My only hope was not to blow
    I have practiced after all
    I’ve shown my act to you before

    I just wanted to show off my talents
    Thought nothing people said could ever throw me off balance
    But now I’m left with your burning question ringing in my head:
    "Why does all your shit suck so fucking bad?"

    And I can’t and I can’t and I can’t and I can’t
    Help but to think about that

    Chorus:
    Your mind is like a minefield
    And I walk blindfolded
    I know if I'm still here
    It didn't really hurt me

    One day I'll get tired of your shit
    But you and I both know
    We cannot, cannot quit

    Verse 2:
    Riding back from a standing ovation
    I pick up my phone with hesitation
    Wanna shout "fuck you", I say "hello"
    What's that about my ego not taking a blow?

    You tell me you were just trying to help
    How if not for you I wouldn’t challenge myself
    Slam the phone down on my lap, take a deep breath
    I hate you but I also fucking love you to death

    And I try and I try and I try to respond
    But I’m all out of breath

    Chorus:
    Your mind is like a minefield
    And I walk blindfolded
    I know if I'm still here
    It didn't really hurt me

    One day I'll get tired of your shit
    But you and I both know
    We cannot, cannot quit

    Bridge:
    We’ve danced this dance before, I
    Don’t even know what for, why
    Do we torture ourselves till we’re lying on the floor?

    Still playing at romance, though
    We both know we haven’t got a chance, so
    Why do I always find myself coming back for more?

    Chorus:
    Your mind is like a minefield
    And I walk blindfolded
    I know if I'm still here
    It didn't really hurt me

    One day I'll get tired of your shit
    But you and I both know
    We cannot, cannot quit
  • VERSE 1

    I’m here watching you
    You’ve been watching me too
    From across the room
    In slow motion

    My breath it seems so shallow
    heartbeat becomes slow
    this will all end soon
    So take my hand

    Sure as the sun, they say
    We melt by it’s rays
    look up close and we
    see their cells die

    Lose focus in the eyes
    Frozen, mesmerized
    Feels like this moment
    Will last forever

    PRE-CHORUS

    All of you
    who look to see
    As we are so you shall be
    All of you
    who pass us by
    One day soon will say goodbye

    CHORUS 1

    From front to end
    From Dusk to dawn
    Waiting for
    A crimson spawn
    Live to die
    And be reborn
    Waiting for
    A crimson spawn

    VERSE 2

    I’m here watching you
    You’ve been watching me too
    From the other side of space
    In slow motion

    Breath anticipating
    Heart accelerating
    Ask for one more chance
    To live this life

    These things don’t matter
    These atoms shatter
    So let go of my hand
    As I let go of yours

    Lose focus in the eyes
    Frozen, mesmerized
    Feels like this moment
    Will last forever

    PRE-CHORUS

    CHORUS 2
  • Pass the rum
    Pass me a pistol
    Pass the guarded gates
    We'll lay siege
    To Bayamo
    before the morning breaks

    70 men
    Against an army
    Just looking for a spark
    An hour in
    Dead or captured
    We've barely made a mark.

    Condemn me
    it doesn't matter
    History
    will absolve me
    Independence
    is all that matters
    (da da da da da)

    A hundred
    twenty two defendants
    Facing judgement day
    One lawyer
    With a plan
    to defend himself pro se

    Four hours
    Spoken defense
    About inherent Cuban rights
    To rebel
    Against a government
    Illegitimate and despised

    Condemn me
    it doesn't matter
    History
    will absolve me
    Independence
    is all that matters
    (da da da da da)

    The movement
    Formed in the prison
    as we read Lenin Marti and Marx
    through correspondence
    and publication
    We organized Cubans at large.

    16 years
    on the sentence
    At the isle of pines
    Till Jesuits
    Taught forgiveness
    And spared us from that plight

    Condemn me
    it doesn't matter
    History
    will absolve me
    Independence
    is all that matters
    (da da da da da)

    Now we're exiles
    Down in Mexico
    Making some new friends
    I could go on
    With this story
    But I think we all know how it ends.
  • Our Little Game
    (The Lover's Tango)

    All beginnings have an end
    And all endings must begin
    But just like a perfect storm
    We'll come around again
    Lust and shame
    Trust and blame
    We're defeating ourselves
    At our own little game

    And we'll return
    Raptured ricochet
    Bound and unraveled
    Again you steal my heart away
    Just for a taste of your spirit bold
    I'd give my flesh, my blood, my soul
    Like the snake that eats it tail
    You'll first swallow my heart whole

    All beginnings have an end
    And all endings must begin
    In the aftermath of the storm
    We'll await our ship to come in
    Lust and shame
    Trust and blame
    We're defeating ourselves
    At our own little game
  • Shadows lengthen in the nascent dawn
    We ride into the tiger's maw
    New constellations dispel the night
    The darkness won't consume the light
    If we fight

    There are wolves at the walls
    Someday the city may fall
    But not this day

    Once again, we ascend
    For the frightened faces we defend
    The fire acts, it does not ask
    Forward now, no turning back
    A bone-deep certainty
    Carries us to victory

    There are wolves at the walls
    Someday the city may fall
    But not this day

    We draw the line here
    This far
    No farther

    We draw the line here
    This far
    No farther

    We draw the line here!
    This far!
    No farther!
    NO FARTHER!

  • An Ending

    There are scratches on the basement door
    And everything in it just reflects myself
    The sun has already set for the last time
    At least this iteration no distinction between sleep and death

    There's ashes buried just under the earth
    As cycles renew its there only evidence
    Sift through them enough and you'll find your skeleton
    Mouth agape at the size of all creation

    The stars go out in a blink of an eye
    As fragile as glass our tiny lives
    The world is a graveyard count the dead
    Until the cycle ends and the heavens break

    No future no past no planned destination
    End fates we are all cursed by preminition
    No future no past no planned destination
    End fates we are all cursed by preminition
    No future no past no planned destination
    End fates we are all cursed by preminition
    No future no past no planned destination
    End fates we are all cursed by preminition

  • We join this world not knowing we know nothing
    And we try to learn as much as we can
    We spend our lives hunting for new knowledge
    The more we know the less we understand
    The ones who act the smartest
    The ones who think they know it all
    The ones who walk to the ledge with no fear
    Are the ones destined for a fall

    Things seem bad when you're only half way down
    But just you wait for the full fool fall

    There was one such man still didn't know that he knew nothing
    As he always had an answer to hand
    A charlatan, a rogue, a liar and a cheat
    Always acted like he had a plan
    A man that asks no questions
    A man who toes the line
    A man who believes he's above his fellowman
    Is destined for his own fall in time

    Things seem bad when you're only half way down
    But just you wait for the full fool fall

    A lily to finish the preparation
    The air trembles with anticipation

    Chorus
    Mind waxes and wanes in the light of The Sister
    Memories and pains gone in a twister
    Words are spoken with sealed lips
    Eternal youth
    Eternal bliss

    Verse
    Soul stretched as a string, hair marble white
    What the vessel becomes is not for it to decide
    Smell of ambrosia, a familiar presence
    Skies divided between the Disk and the Crescent
    Her disarming visage permits no fear
    She is here

    Chorus
    Mind waxes and wanes in the light of The Sister
    Memories and pains gone in a twister
    Words are spoken with sealed lips
    Eternal youth
    Eternal bliss

    Bridge

    Chorus
    Mind waxes and wanes in the light of The Sister
    Memories and pains gone in a twister
    Words were spoken with sealed lips
    Eternal youth
    Eternal bliss
  • Unemotional, still
    A quiet catatonic chaos
    No sign of where they've been or where they've gone
    Unmoving until
    Another one can come settle the dust
    Between the waves the going's rough
    And it comes and goes in-

    Can they see?
    A frosted-over frozen soul
    One that's never-ending
    Can they feel?
    This familiar mindless heart?

    Can he tell?
    That the questions of "if it's enough"
    Well they're never answered
    Does he know?
    That's it's a familiar sound?

    Unemotional, still
    A quiet catatonic chaos
    No sign of where they've been or where they've gone
    Unmoving until
    Another one can come settle the dust
    Between the waves the going's rough
    And it comes and goes in-
    Waves

    Waves, waves
    It crashes over, washes over like
    Waves waves
    A resolution from within these
    Waves waves
    It comes and goes in
    Waves

    Do they talk?
    About how he's hanging on a rope
    Swinging with the breeze and
    Does he talk?
    Does he interact at all?

    Is he doomed?
    Awaiting judgement with no avenue
    For his will to return
    Will he find?
    That there's nothing he can do?

    Unemotional, still
    A quiet catatonic chaos
    No sign of where they've been or where they've gone

  • Imagine seeing you here, my old acquaintence
    It's been too long, please, make yourself at home
    I'd almost lost the memories, I have to
    Give you thanks for letting them all rush back over me like a tidal wave

    I'm not ready for the battle
    I've done a lot to never let it come to this
    I've found myself arriving at an impass
    I'm not about to be beat by the likes of me

    There comes a time when you must make your own decisions
    The cloud of doubt you feel can leave a bitter taste
    I have a habit of being a creature of habit
    That awful idiosyncrasy that always gets in the way

    I've tried to minimize the incidents
    I've come to terms that you'll never go away
    I have to learn to prepare myself for battle
    I'm not about to give myself over to you

    Three cheers to dischord
    and permanence
    The perfect couple
    of opulence

    Before you go, remember just what you've signed up for
    I'm stuck with you but soon you will be stuck with me
    Familiarity will always breed contempt
    You will grow tired, I know you will, eventually

    There is no winner in this game of cat and mouse
    To have one you must always have the other
    There is no demon that can take the legs I stand on
    As long as I stay battle ready

    I have to give myself the chances I deserve
    I can't resign to live in my own shadow
    I will make the change that I'm afraid of
    It can't get worse cause things were bad already
  • [Verse 1]
    Since I was young I wanted to believe
    That becoming a king is mine too achieve
    I took the chance to climb up,
    Pushed away others, I made my mind up,

    Break up, make up, rinse and repeat,
    No fair play I know that I was a cheat.
    They believed me when I said you can trust me,
    The loved me, hated me, forgave me, dated me,

    I didn't stop in my path to ask forgiveness
    I didn't consider my lying to be a sickness

    The choices I made brought me here
    And on the top of my kingdom
    I disappear

    [Chorus]
    I am the king, the king of lies
    And now I’m here on top of my tower
    and to get here I paid the price.

    But when the lies were found
    The tower I build started to crumble
    and now I’m coming for the ground

    [Verse 2]
    A few casualties along the way
    it became normal like night and day
    I was blinded by my greed,
    forgot to care, I just wanted to succeed

    I looked up to others, but I wanted to look down,
    So I build a tower, I put on a crown.
    I thought I was unstoppable, untouchable,
    but it turned out I was just dysfunctional

    I didn't stop in my path to ask forgiveness
    I didn't consider my lying to be a sickness

    The choices I made brought me here
    And on the top of my kingdom
    I disappear

    [Bridge]
    still working in this part

    [Chorus]
    I am the king, the king of lies
    And now I’m here on top of my tower
    and to get here I paid the price.

    But when the lies were found
    The tower I build started to crumble
    and now I’m coming for the ground

    I am the king, the king of lies
    And now I’m here on top of my tower
    and to get here I paid the price.

    But when the lies were found
    The tower I build started to crumble
    and now I’m coming for the ground
  • The Wrong Kind Of Strength
    A villanelle

    Here come the strong men, outside of the store
    With propaganda on back of their cars
    Never satisfied, always wanting more

    Brainwashed by preachers of hatred and gore
    Taking the way of ancestors too far
    Here come the strong men, outside of the store

    Drove insane by young ones, less than a score
    One's whose beliefs are diff'rent than theirs are
    Never satisfied, always wanting more

    On all types of change, they will declare war
    Worshipping those who are locked behind bars
    Here come the strong men, outside of the store

    Raising kids to be rotten to the core
    When they are fresh, they receive mental scars
    Never satisfied, always wanting more

    When the time's right, they charge the the door
    Hoping that they can install their old tsar
    Here come the strong men, outside of the store
    Never satisfied, always wanting more

    A shining harbinger of all you hope
    Follow me down the darkling, harrowed path
    Dare to deepen the lore you know
    All you yearn to desire and adore
    Is not so far beyond your reach
    I’ll part the shadows as you moor

    Little bird fly not mountain high
    Your answers lie so close
    Little bird your wings have kissed sky
    Your journey lies back home

    Illumination waits within
    Little bird halt your sighs
    Your dreaming days will not descend
    Little bird it’s time

    The echoes calling
    Rising within your soul
    The bitterness drowning
    To make the fractures whole

    Little bird I’ll lead the vespers
    Guide you to the end
    Little bird the stars they whisper
    To learn you must begin

    The echoes calling
    Rising within your soul
    The bitterness drowning
    To make the fractures whole

    Travel with me
    See what’s to see
    Take it all in
    Try not to sin
    The price to pay
    Is heavy to weigh dear bird

    The echoes calling
    Rising within your soul
    The bitterness drowning
    To make the fractures whole

    Softly fall beneath cool stone
    Little bird close your eyes
    Nothing more you now need atone
    Little bird now you’re mine

    Little bird don’t cry
    Little bird don't cry
    Little bird don't cry
    Little bird now you're mine
  • (Card: The High Priestess)

    When unturned and upright
    She'll be the guide and the light
    To illuminate my mind

    Guardian protecting me
    Divine High Priestess
    Illuminates perceptively
    Spiritual Completeness

    But there's another part of her just a turn away
    Not a giving nurturer stirring me awake
    Rise and go search for her - lift my inertial weight
    I am the determiner of which path I should take

    Teacher of hidden mysteries
    My inner voice finds inner peace
    Sacred knowledge, and its possibilities

    I am no longer blind
    Sanctified High Priestess
    Shining star, awakened mind
    Ethereal, astral freeness

    But when turned and reversed, Low Priestess emerged
    With secrets, untruths and dark curses
    Its shadow cast wide with gossip and lies
    Showing me just what my worst is

    I am no longer living the dream
    Dark forces are stronger, so haunted I scream
    Disturbed paranoia fills my mind with fear
    Psychic destroyer, how did my soul disappear?

    Descent into madness, abandoned all hope
    Trapped by the sadness, want to give up the ghost
    The wrong path was taken, now so full of doubt
    I've been forsaken, abandoned, cast out

    Crying out in the darkness, such pain I have felt
    This is the farthest I've been from myself
    So trapped by my weakness, can't see my way clear
    Oh help me, High Priestess, when will my angel appear?

    How will I know
    When to let go?
    'cause I need this!
    High Priestess!
    I'm not afraid
    I won't run away!

    Relieve me please
    Give me some peace
    Show me your sweetness!
    My High Priestess!
    And I'm growing strong!
    I knew it all along!

    And I feel you now
    I brought this about
    I want you to see this!
    High Priestess!

    Oh
    Behold, my soul,
    It glows, it flows, it grows (x5)

  • You have to know the all is one
    Nothing but friction, blood in the sun
    Beginning and the end of time
    Integrity denied - the cause of fault was mine

    I'm not able to expose
    The loss of hope I now forsake
    Within myself I decompose
    Stress overcomes, I see the break
    The end of time begins right now
    and crafty lies come from the snake
    So sublime, holier-than thou
    The treasure's soul lies in the break
    -----------
    It eats its tail and swallows whole
    Auto-impales, self feeds its soul
    Boundaries, Ouroboros lies
    The netherworlds wont see it die

    The Leviathan's infinity
    is a special creature with no mate,
    Sets on fire divinity
    Believe it transubstantiates
    In its circle is yin and yang
    Immortality reincarnates
    Repetition boomerangs
    Mortality ends in the break

    Transmigration of the soul
    Living nerves now dead
    Circulation portmanteau
    Mystically inbred

    Jörmungandr, ocean's edge
    Cycloidal fate
    Balance as the cosmos ebbs
    Re-embodied fate
    So the spiral spins us withal
    The ring brings us awake
    New consciousness, it does recall

    They say we are all in this together
    And it will all change for the better

    Freedoms to build chains
    Chains of stupidity
    Chains of pain
    Shackled not by science
    Such senselessness, seemingly in endlessness.
    Is friendlessness deserved, deserved for the rest of us?

    when he was just about five
    told him god lives in the future
    then he left walking about 3 miles.

  • Kurze Basler Chronik (A True Story in 7/4 Time)
    ------------------------

    Cockle Doodle Doo!
    Was the rooster's defense
    Odd times, indeed
    The trial of the decade
    In 1474....

    The fear of witchcraft
    Extended to animals
    This poor cock
    Was accused of sorcery!

    Charged with the
    "Heinous and unnatural crime
    of laying an egg"!
    That black magic ovum

    As Alexander Neckam wrote
    In "De naturis rerum"
    This unholy egg
    Was fertilized by a toad

    It would hatch into a....
    Cockatrice!
    A creature who
    can kill with one look, a breath.....

    [GUITAR SOLO!]

    A full trial began
    In Basel, Switzerland
    The People vs. The Witch Rooster
    Courtroom was completely packed

    The cock had a public defender
    it couldn't afford an attorney
    Its lawyer did his very best
    Passionate and Eloquent!

    CHORUS 2
    "On behalf of the gallinaceous prisoner
    [his advocate submits] !
    No evil animus had been proved
    against my client

    No injury to man or beast
    Has resulted.
    The defense rests"
    [Now it was the prosecutor's turn!]


    DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Your Honor, my client is completely innocent!
    ROOSTER: [Help me!]
    JUDGE: Order in the Court, Order in the Court!!!
    (Crowd Gasps)

    The prosecutor began dramatically:
    "This was not a case
    of the devil making compact
    with these brutes

    but that Satan actually
    entered into them
    on occasion"
    [The crowd nodded in agreement!]

    The trial ended in conviction
    And the rooster was sentenced
    To be burned at the stake
    In the center of town!!

    Along with one of its eggs.
    the town's residents gathered
    and watched the execution...
    This wasn't the last time...
  • Verse 1
    Like a moth to a flame
    I'll steer the ship into the lighthouse
    Plant my feet on the coast
    Stomp my way into a hornets nest

    Set up shop in a photo booth
    Like a mouse with a head of cheese
    Don't want my picture took
    Make like a tree and grow

    Chorus
    No highway that I can find
    Out of breath out of sight and out of gas
    Homeward bound and homeless
    Lost in my neighborhood

    Verse 2
    Like a bird in a cage
    I'll turn this home into a house
    Peak from my perch out the window
    See old friends soar freely by

    Put pen to paper maps
    Plotting Xs to mark the spot
    Parade through paradise lost and found
    Pleading for a compass

    Chorus 2
    No roads out of town left
    No escape from the heart, from the mind
    Onward but spinning wheels
    Lost in my neighborhood

    Chorus 3
    No clear path out of orbit
    Global satellites show the route
    Colliding debris cascades and I'm
    Lost in my neighborhood

    Chorus 4
    The North Star's light is gone
    The sun rises and sets serpentine
    road signs turn their backs to us
    We're lost in our neighborhoods
  • Dear
    There's something so tragic about this
    Enchantress,
    Are you casting your spell on me?

    Honey,
    There's something that echoes fatally within this
    A mirage from a past life long gone

    It all glitters like stars
    The moon bids me farewell
    Well I've got a rope to hang from a tree
    Don't offer the world from your hands
    In a minute with you
    I've lived through three lifetimes
    The world somehow like a spinning top
    But still I ask, let it fall

    Sweetheart,
    There's something frightful about you
    Sorceress,
    there's power there to end this misery

    Angel,
    Open your wings you know where I want to go
    Don't you want to show me your ideals

    It all glitters like stars
    The moon bids me farewell
    Well, I've got a rope to hang from a tree
    Don't offer the world from your hands
    In a minute with you
    I've lived through three lifetimes
    The world somehow like a spinning top
    But still I ask, let it fall

    It all glitters like stars
    The moon bids me farewell
    Well, I've got a rope to hang from a tree
    Don't offer the world from your hands
    In a minute with you
    I've lived through three lifetimes
    The world somehow like a spinning top
    But still I ask, let it fall
  • At the train ahead
    A whistle sings out
    On a highway once built for cars
    Bikes rattle past
    In the growing lane
    Move slowly but we'll arrive

    When the wind's about
    And sun is up high
    We can recognize that we're awake
    In cloudy years
    Or a tidal wave
    It's time to pay the piper for the tune

    Do you have just a little more time
    Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
    It's a lot to recover like this
    Hard to swelter with the AC on

    By the scenic path
    A lucky tree roots
    In a pasture once paved a lot
    Light dapples grass
    Through the willow leaves
    They only yearn for the rain

    But the drops are even now small packages
    Micro reminders of unguarded greed
    We allowed a ticking bomb to spoil a splendor
    It'll stop ticking down if we don't cut fuse

    On an obelisk
    Below a snowdrift
    In a downtown once built for cars
    Some epitaph
    For a life long lost
    "This Eden we did forsake…"

    Do you have just a little more time
    Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
    It's a lot to recover like this
    Hard to swelter with the AC on

    Do you have just a little more time
    Still learning to walk, but we think so fast now
    It's a lot to recover like this
    Hard to help her by the road we're on
  • Knew when I first saw you
    By the waving of your hand
    You had leapt right out of time
    And into echoes of my heart
    But you ran before I caught you
    Into ripples between space

    I’ll find you no matter where
    I’ll find you no matter when
    To the ends of the universe
    Tell me now, when did you go?

    There you are
    Again
    Pyramids
    At your back
    Stay awhile this time
    Under ancient worlds
    I’ll be your Orpheus
    Be my Eurydice

    No! Don’t go again
    Across atomic fields
    This game is too exhausting
    And my fuel is running low
    Turn back your midnight gaze
    See what you leave behind

    I’ll find you no matter where
    I’ll find you no matter when
    To the ends of the universe
    Tell me now, when did you go?

    Now’s our time
    Together
    Washing
    Over waves
    Tides of hours
    Stay beside me
    Watch the constellations
    Change

    Not again now
    Your wanderlust is endless
    Blackening my soul
    Drying the empty dust
    Within my faltering heart
    Warping the world around you
    For just one look at just one more
    Era outside your own time

    I’ll find you no matter where
    I’ll find you no matter when
    To the ends of the universe
    Tell me now, when did you go?

    Make this our time
    Make this our now
    One last leap
    And longing
    Into the everlasting
    Forever

  • We urban sparrows
    We’re begging for your help
    We ask for mercy
    For we have sinned
    We urban sparrows
    The ones who made this mess
    We ask for mercy
    For we have sinned



    We urban sparrows
    Stuck in urban traps
    We come to offer
    Frankincense and myrrh
    We send the prayers
    To the distant skies
    We watch the sermon
    Through the coloured glass


    We urban sparrows
    We want our daily bread
    The absolution
    To sin no more
    We urban sparrows
    The ones who made this mess
    We urban sparrows
    With no one to worship on Sunday



    Free from sin, safe from stress
    Give us all we can take

    Free from sin, safe from harm
    Give us all that remains

    Free from thoughts, safe from blame
    Give us all we can’t have

    Free from sin, safe from stress
    Give us all we can take


    We walk the pavements
    Weaker by the day
    We scroll the pages
    In search of providence
    We look for Master
    On OnlyFans
    A flagellation
    Eleven hundred tweets


    We watch the sermon
    Suffer through the ads
    Corrupted heartbeat
    The sin of apathy
    We urban sparrows
    The ones who made this mess
    We urban sparrows
    With no one to worship on Sunday

    final chorus [2:09-3:16]

    Free from sin, safe from stress
    Give us all we can take

    Free from sin, safe from harm
    Give us all that remains

    Free from thoughts, safe from blame
    Give us all we can’t have

    Free from sin, safe from stress
    Give us all we can take

    Stained touch screen, empty gaze
    Give us all we can take

    Endless days spent in bed
    Give us all that remains

    Free from thoughts, safe from blame
    Give us all we can’t have

    Free from sin, safe from stress
    Give us all we can take
  • Waiting for the thunder
    Counting down the seconds left until it's over
    Camera's on a timer I forgot to turn the flash off of
    My eyes are red and I can't bear the waiting
    Mouthing out the message I still
    Carry on my phone from the Old Earth

    Much too hot for music
    Beats'll make me feisty at so late an hour
    Even with the rain I'm letting in I'm gonna lose my mind
    And if I lose it maybe then I'll give up
    Cooling my emotions on the window sill of lunacy
    I'm running hot until the thunder breaks me down
    *1 second, 2 second, 3*

    What was the area code?
    I don't know

    But it's
    Buried on my phone from the Old Earth
    That capsule in the dirt from the Old World

    Don't dig up the capsule
    All I left were trinkets lacking in perspective
    Damn it where's the thunder so I know the storm is leaving
    Counting every second when I should be sheeping
    Memorizing digits I know I still
    Carry on my phone from the Old Earth
    Carry on my phone from the Old Earth
    *1 second, 2 second, 3 second, 4*
    *1 second, 2 second, 3 second*

    Sometimes I still feel the breeze of
    Chasing the expanse
    Given too much freedom
    It was wasted on this fool

    [0:58]
    If wishes were horses, pure and running swift
    This beggar would ride
    My heart would be a meadow stretching out
    Under clear skies
    And I'd rein in my recklessness
    Before we reached that edge

    [1:41]
    We have
    Found ourselves
    Somewhere desolate
    I'm not sure
    We can
    Find our way back

    [2:01]
    This far out here nothing grows
    All dried up and dead
    It doesn't rain so nothing thrives
    In this forsaken place

    [2:24]
    If wishes were horses, pure and running swift
    This beggar would ride

  • While you thought I was rotting
    I spent my years plotting
    Ever since I was flushed down the drain

    I've aquired a taste
    For nuclear waste
    And medication to enlarged my brain

    No longer a fish
    But a monster with a wish
    And Theres no making amends

    I'm armed to the gills
    And ready to kill
    Now it's time inact my revenge.

    You're going down down down
    I'm bringing the pain
    You're going down down down
    You can't escape my aim

    To be fair foul beast
    you seemed deceast
    You were destined for the toilet or can

    And The 8 year old boy
    You so seek to destroy
    Has grown into a mountain of a man

    Now I'm A plumber by trade
    I face it every day
    Theres nothing I can't flush

    So by plunger or torch
    I'll settle this score
    And clean this old mess right up

    You're going down down down
    Back were you came
    You're going down down down
    Back down the drain

    The fin and the plunger shall clash
    They cannot mend their divide
    Hear the brown tide crash
    As worlds of man and fish collide

    You're going down down down
    I'm bringing the pain
    You're going down down down

    You're going down down down
    You can't escape my aim
    You're going down down down
    Back down the drain
  • You get one shot, better make it count..
    By tomble2000

    Flask:
    We are the action, we’re taking names.
    The greatest faction, no one the same
    Like a hook, line and sinker, close to the edge
    We hit like a sledge… (pause, I hear it falling between lines)
    Hammer this home. We are the team
    We didn’t come to fight, We came to win.

    Sangtr:

    Like rules made to broken, shattered and frayed
    The greatest tag team, no others can play
    Like a bait and switch gambit, bringing the pain
    We hit like a train...(pause, I hear it falling between lines)
    Track this redemption, The legion of noise
    We didn’t come to fight, We came to win

    We are the victors
    We’ll fight them all
    We take the chances
    When others would fall
    Cry out for battle
    Cry out our name
    You can not beat us
    So many have failed

    Sangtr:

    We see the chances, the slight openings
    Others just lay there, like a sloth just hanging
    Stars in the daylight, assault the senses
    A fighter's true instinct kicking down fences...
    We pick it up, we bring the pain
    We didn’t come to fight, we came to win

    Flask:

    Lights flash in the darkness, top to the toe
    Screams of the victims, the reapers that sow
    Hearing the last bell, you won’t hear the ring
    You’re falling through space, it goes ting, ting, ting
    We didn’t come to fight, we came to win!
    We didn’t come to fight, we came to win!

    We are the victors
    We’ll fight them all
    We take the chances
    When others would fall
    Cry out for battle
    Cry out our name
    You can not beat us
    As so many have failed


    That was the final bell
    This was your fall
    We’re kings of the ring
    We’re the kings of it all
    Taking down numbers
    Taking down names
    Breaking down challengers
    Breaking down games
    I hate to tell you this is it
    But we’re going to take it all.
    Chorus to outro:

    We are the victors
    We’ll fight them all
    We take the chances
    When others would fall
    Cry out for battle
    Cry out our name
    You can not beat us

    As so many have failed
    As so many have failed

  • [Verse]
    As long as I can remember
    I carried a torch in my kingdom's name
    Wearing a sash of recognition
    The color of my name, of a flame

    I'm not the warrior you asked for (How could you say this?)
    The continuation of a non-legacy
    A liar, a cheat but no scoundrel (You did what you had to do)
    A leader that asks you to put this faith in me

    [Chorus]
    You have
    Put your trust in me
    Duty bound
    I will protect you
    I'm no damsel in distress
    Watch me as I am/ If you need me I'll be your hero

    [Verse]
    I can't wait, with lives at stake
    Until they deem us worthy, deem my training done
    With my sword in hand, I'm not "just a man"
    What good am I if I can't even do this on my own?

    Fear rules our common lands
    I chose to fight for those who never could
    This tactical victory, why does it taste of defeat?
    Are these extreme measures worth everything?
    Worth giving my life for?

    [Chorus]
    You have put your trust in me
    Duty bound I will protect you
    I'm no damsel in distress,
    If you need me I'll be
    Your hero / Watch me as I am
    Your hero

    [Bridge]
    Take my hand, I’m here to protect you
    Nothing will stop me
    There’s no sacrifice, that I won’t make

    I will fight until the finish line
    Without regrets, without fear
    I offer up my life, if that what takes

    To deliver my people from harm,
    I’d risk it all
    I’d risk it all

    [Chorus]
    You have
    Put your trust in me
    Duty bound
    I will protect you
    I'm no damsel in distress
    Watch me as I am/ If you need me I'll be
    Your hero

    Come and put your trust in me
    Duty bound, I'll be the savior
    No more sacrifices, no more blood
    Watch me as I am

    But wait a second, let me think…

  • Sampled from Too Hurt To Cry by Candi Staton


    Friday night fights just to pay the bills
    To hurt to cry so I'm poppin pain pills
    Too broke to quit so I stick with this shit
    Got two kids at home and the wife is pregnant
    Designated gatekeeper but I can't keep it shut
    Dehydrated trying to make the weight cut
    boxing is a business but this job is hell
    they bring me to the ring and then they ring my bell


    I'm not going down
    But I'm not getting up soon
    This ain't all over now
    But I'm not so sure that's true


    Back in 04 they called me the Taurus
    Bullhead whip smart violence gorgeous
    I was on top the best of the best
    But even winners aren't paid to rest
    Black eyes, broken nose, that's how it goes
    you go toe to toe and it comes to blows
    goin round for round and pound for pound
    knockout lights out time for a new bout
    i got a mean left hook but my managers a crook
    took all my cash and booked a new fight fast


    I'm not going down
    But I'm not getting up soon
    This ain't all over now
    But I'm not so sure that's true


    Too hurt to cry too tough to die
    but as long as I'm alive ill never take a dive
    if you think I'm done son give me a try
    I fight to provide you'll fight to survive


    I'm not going down
    But I'm not getting up soon
    This ain't all over now
    But I'm not so sure that's true

    Gaze upon the slain
    Death awaits
    Surrender before it's too late
    Because death awaits
    Open the gates or
    Death awaits you
  • [Saucyjack] Echoes haunting me tonight
    Calling off my wounded might
    The universe is closing down
    Why tolerate another round
    Living in hollows and empty sighs
    So very tired of all the lies
    And nothing keeps me hanging on

    [Partyeefee] Don’t give up what they allow
    Surrender’s not an option now
    Step away from the crumbling ledge
    Not everything’s a razor edge
    Raise your head up, set your gaze
    Bravery burns the silvery haze
    I promise to keep you hanging on

    [Both] In our last fight together

    (Saucyjack) (Partyeefee)
    Just one more day Not one more day
    Listen to what I have to say There’s nothing more for you to say
    There’s a light still burning here The darkness is too bitter, dear
    A breaking dawn cut so severe Let me lie down peaceful here
    A single breath is all it takes Slowly breathing out the haste
    To blow away all past mistakes And blown to ashes by the lake
    The world is missing if you’re gone Nothing’s missing with me gone
    And everything keeps going on But everything keeps going on

    [Saucyjack] Bloodied and broken, abandoned and bruised
    Every drip of innocence abused
    When living on is decadent
    I’ll give in to the descent
    Dust entrenches on my knees
    Let me fall, let me fall down please
    I’m just so tired of hanging on

    [Partyeefee] A wounded soul can always heal
    Rise up, rise up from where you kneel
    Look up, look up and taste the sky
    The sweet surround and wavering sigh
    A beautiful broken harvest moon
    The falling snow in distant rooms
    All this and more worth hanging on for

    [Both] In our last fight together
    (Partyeefee) (Saucyjack)
    Just one more day Not one more day
    Listen to what I have to say There’s nothing more for you to say
    There’s a light still burning here The darkness is too bitter, dear
    A breaking dawn cut so severe Let me lie down peaceful here
    A single breath is all it takes Slowly breathing out the haste
    To blow away all past mistakes And blown to ashes by the lake
    The world is missing if you’re gone Nothing’s missing with me gone
    And everything keeps going on But everything keeps going on

    [03:51]
    [Saucyjack] Stop telling me to solider on
    [Partyeefee] I’m telling you there’s more to come
    [Saucyjack] I’ve been broken in too many parts
    [Partyeefee] There’s embers burning in your heart
    [Saucyjack] Let this tired soul slip away
    [Partyeefee] Let me carry the coldest weight
    [Both] I know we’re barely hanging on

    [Both] We’re in this fight together

    [Both Keep hanging on

    LADY BREEZY:
    I'm know as The Lady Easy Breezy Beautiful

    The fact that I'm fighting, I find bittersweet
    But I am going to help my opponent
    Can people change for the better? Well, I'm a proponent
    The key to success is caring and listening
    will Party Monstah be sharing? This should be interesting....

    PARTY MONSTAH:
    You'll get nothing from me / except for great pain
    Injury guaranteed / a beating sustained
    You'll walk away crippled / bloody and bruised
    Insulted, belittled / It's how you will lose
    I was born into hardship / an orphan that fought
    broke hip and fat lip / 3 times i was shot
    Kill or be killed / was how I survived
    So it gives me a thrill / to kick your ass live
    I'll whip you and cut you/and jump from the ropes
    land on and head butt you / and dash all your hopes(edited)

    On your chest, my knee pressing in
    There's no way you can fight back!

    LADY BREEZY:
    I know your childhood's been tough
    And experienced a lot of heartbreak
    But if you open up, soon enough
    You'll see the progress you'll make!

    LADY BREEZY:
    Are all of your relationships turned bad?
    Is your personal life breaking down?

    PARTY MONSTAH:
    You don't know about the life that i had
    There's no way to turn this around!

    We can both solve this together

    PARTY MOSTAH
    It's just too much to go through
    It will be like this forever

    Maybe not, if we hold each other
    And find deep support from a friend
    We'll both then rediscover
    Through love, this fight ends!
  • Knock 'em out!

    Knock 'em out!
    Landed a fist on their face
    And knock 'em out!
    Shut your big mouth up
    And giddy up!
    Gonna take my victory
    And knock 'em out!
    Knock 'em out!

    If you can't stand the heat
    If you can't stand the pressure
    You'd better get outta here!

    People's chant is fading out
    Everything turns upside down
    Only emptiness and me
    What a lonely victory

    People's starting to walk out
    I don't wanna go back home
    Loneliness is hurts like hell
    All I have is trophies for pain

    Verse 2
    I gotta knock 'em out!
    Jump kick to your head
    And knock 'em out!
    Wanna see my combo?
    And knock 'em out!
    Gonna do my fatality
    And knock 'em out!
    Knock 'em out!


    People's chant is fading out
    Everything turns upside down
    Only emptiness and me
    What a lonely victory

    People's starting to walk out
    I'm all alone and look down
    All I need is just a friend
    I don't wanna go insane

    My earthquake rage fist!
  • Excuse me I'm just sorta coming through here
    Kinda wanted dead or alive
    Apparently you can't start a rebellion
    Without them sending out their own guys

    Do me a favor tear down that wanted poster
    Just gotta finish up my get rich quick scheme
    Redistributing the wealth, well that's morally correct
    And should I profit off of it, well that's that

    They claim I did a bad, did a bad thing
    They don't even know our names
    These accusations are insane
    Oops! I started up an uprising
    Is that really my fault?
    It feels like more your own fault

    They claim I did a bad, did a bad thing
    They don't even know our names
    These accusations are insane
    Oops! I robbed the king blind
    Honestly, it was about time
    They claim we did a bad, did a bad, did a bad thing

    Is this nation-wide manhunt required?
    Do you even have this kind of manpower to spare?
    I'm just a single guy, together with my partner I-
    You didn't think I'd spill the beans right there?

    I'm no copycat hero, I'm original
    Won't throw tea in the harbor (who does that? that's so weird)
    Hunger strikes are such a bore, I've seen it all before
    I'm trying to reinvent myself here!

    They claim I did a bad, did a bad thing
    They don't even know our names
    These accusations are insane
    Oops! The prince fell in love with me
    Is that really my fault?
    It feels like it's really your own fault

    They claim I did a bad, did a bad thing
    They don't even know our names
    These accusations are insane
    Oops! I ridiculed his majesty
    I mean, he's still a joke to me
    They claim we did a bad, did a bad, did a bad thing
  • This Is Not A Song
    Inspired by Rene Magrite's Treachery of Images


    You better stop listening
    Better stop singing along
    For despite the evidence
    This is not a song

    There are no verses here
    There are no words being sung
    The drums are not being beat
    Guitar strings aren't being strummed

    There is no chorus approaching
    No release coming headlong
    Better turn off your speakers
    Cos this is not a song

    This is not a song
    Do not sing along
    This is not a song
    Do not sing along

    There are no chords being played
    No bassline walking along
    And I am not singing any words
    Cos this is not a song

    There is no call-and-response
    No lyrics spelling it out
    Music theory is useless
    When there ain't no music about

    There is no solo approaching
    No melodies, weak or strong
    Better unplug your headphones
    For this is not a song

    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along

    No solo here.
    Nope, this part is definitely not a guitar solo.

    Why are you still here?
    Listening to this song
    I mean, um, er, non-song
    I didn't mean to say "song"

    Just think about your parents
    They must be really sad
    This listening to nonsense
    Must make you look quite mad

    This doesn't have any notes
    No keyboard lines to be seen
    And my voice isn't singing
    So let's see what we've gleaned

    Despite all the evidence
    That I am clearly wrong
    I'll keep repeating this mantra:
    This is not a song!

    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along

    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
    This is not a song (This is not a song)
    Do not sing along

    ============================

    Patient, nearly lethargy
    Unpredicted weather raiment

    Haven, bidden to the miles
    Sanctuary quakes, rattle on

    Corded ward affords a privacy
    Time aboard is sanctified
    A wing winds a pole

    O saint of sinful keeping
    Haloed by flash at interval
    Miracle carried home by rote
    Lord let her alone

    Native asmodel in deed
    Never let a lamb lay hungry

    Set down, metro metatron
    Perch a plastic pew when legs have gone

    Vibrant lines entwined in finest weave
    End to end, divine

    O saint of sinful keeping
    Haloed by flash at interval
    Miracle carried home by rote
    Lord let her alone

    O saint of sinful keeping
    Haloed by flash at interval
    Miracle carried home by rote
    Lord let her alon
