  • (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
    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

    Chorus [to doos, fade out]
    Doo doo doo...
  • (00:58-01:21)
    Drift alone in a stormy day,
    Tempestuous pangs, they gnaw away,
    Grab onto you, lay down my root,
    And finally feel at ease

    (01:21-01:32)
    I know that when,
    We go we’ll be,
    Flying free,
    Serenity

    (01:33-01:46)
    My ray of light, the wall at the sea
    We weather it all so easily
    Without, there’s no within
    So meet me at the end

    (02:10-02:31)
    Trace my tender lips,
    Embrace my whole,
    My fire pacified,
    My soul enthralled
    Hearts intertwined,
    Our singing sighs,
    Spent, catching breath,
    And lay to rest

    (02:32-02:51)
    My ray of light, the wall at the sea
    We weather it all so easily
    Without, there’s no within
    So meet me at the end

    (03:14-03:34)
    My ray of light, the wall at the sea
    We weather it all so easily
    Without, there’s no within
    So meet me at the end

    (03:57-end)
    I know that when,
    I go I’ll become one with you,
    Finally
  • 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
    When I'm running with wolves
    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

    A little slower now
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how
    (I know there’s no use running)
    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
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how
    (I know there’s no use running)
    There’s no escape now
    (My time is never coming)
    You’re going to take it all from me
    All except my jealousy

    Don’t you dare say it wasn’t done on purpose
    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
    (I know there’s no use running)
    There’s no escape now
    (My time is never coming)
    You’re going to take it all from me
    All except my jealousy
  • [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
    Dracula awakes from his sleep
    Crushing humanity is his goal
    Who can save all their souls

    The half-vampire vampire hunter
    Destined to fight his father

  • 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

  • It's that time of the year once more
    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.

    The breeze her breath
    Which tickles my ear
    I can still hear her sing

    Locked up inside?

    Wicked in ways

  • 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

    Verse 2:
    All that I am

    Everywhere I go
    I bring nothing, yet it's everything

    I can live with that
    Darling, if you never want to turn the lights on again
    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

    I've gone and got rid of the sofa it was bothering me too
    I much prefer laying on the floor, don't you?

    But for now I'll leave this one be

    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…

    Heaven crawling toward the bough
    Immolate
    Your secret’s scratching to get out

    Running faster from the light

    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

    Turning clean the tattered soul
    Redeeming
    You were never going to make me whole

    They carry the annual graves

    I see their face again

    The shuttle for the final send

    They are looking outside

  • 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

  • My ride, my watch, my phone
    My walls, my house, my home
    My chains, my shoes, my clothes
    My everything – from the top to the bottom

    My Jack, my rum and smokes
    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
    My dearest ones, held close
    My everything – to them misbegotten

    My teeth, my hair, my nose
    My skin, my blood, my bones
    My fingers, knees and toes
    My everything – all must be forgotten

    My prized possessions
    Everything I own
    I took it all
    You took it all
    You took it all

    You took what I gave
    Took what I gave
    I’ll give it away
    Give it away

    Think my last thoughts
    Rip out my heart
    Take my last breath
    Think my

    Ssh, I think he’s sleeping
    Is it all a dream
    He won’t awaken
    Now let’s hear him scream

    I gave too much away
    My smile
    My song
    My worth
    My fight

    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
  • You and I
    Two ships at the bottom of the sea
    Remote and withered

    You and I
    Two lights in the middle of a parking lot
    Rattled and weak

    You and I
    Two tea cups on top an old bookshelf
    Rustic and flawed

    Imperfect
    Impermanent
    Incomplete

    Nothing is perfect
    Nothing is permanent
    Nothing ever lasts

    Temporary
    Transient
    Tranquil

    Nothing is perfect
    Nothing is permanent

    Excuse my apprehension as I look ahead
  • VERSE1 - 0:10
    Why
    I wonder again
    What memories tore you from here
    Why I look for you in corners and cracks
    And never seem to find

    CHORUS - 0:35
    The traces you left have faded out
    The mask you wore is chipped and scarred

    VERSE2 - 0:58
    Upon the floor is an aching void
    Where your heart moved on and your soul decayed
    Why I look for you in the marks that you left
    And never seem to find

    CHORUS - 1:24
    The traces you left have faded out
    The mask you wore is chipped and scarred

    BRIDGE - 1:45
    Now I am porcelain
    Fragile
    Porcelain
    Bloodless white
    Porcelain
    Waiting to hit the ground
    As the cyclone in my head twists round and round

    CHORUS - 2:12
    I've searched for you in corners and cracks
    And for ways to turn time back
    The traces you left have faded out
    The mask you wore is chipped and scarred

    2:44
    I've looked for you in the marks you left
    And in the cracks upon my flesh
    The traces you left have faded out
    The mask you wore is chipped and scarred
  • 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
    Pour que je vois une dernière fois tout se défaire

    Refrain x2

    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


    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

    There will be no English rule

    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

    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

  • Verse 1

    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

    [Verse]
    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

    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

    Don't go outside keep the lights off
    Prepare yourself for when they knock
    They'll come soon as the letters say
    They'll come soon to take it all away


    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

    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

    Flee the Nexus

    Only question
    Everything
    Set the scene
    See the sound

    Mass possession
    Mass imposed
    First disposed
    Take this town

    Iron heart
    Metal brain

    From different coil created, mourned

  • VERSE 1 (0:10)
    A tired voice in the darkness
    Leads me ever forward
    Never knowing when
    I’ll see my home again

    CHORUS (0:36)
    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 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

    My vision’s clear

    Like the moon in the wires
    You can only get higher
    And you want me
    To be there too
    But I’m not you

  • 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

    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

    And watch the sun rise
    The oceans reflecting
    The tears in your eyes

    The flame of victory burns so high
    Leaping up into the sky

    Was right beneath your feet

  • 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

    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

    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

    But just you wait for the full fool fall

  • 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

    Drove insane by young ones, less than a score
    One's whose beliefs are diff'rent than theirs are

    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

  • (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)

    This time loop, this time
    Revolves around you

    But the hope beats on and on
    They say this too shall pass
    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?
    We all pay penance
    But hear our rights to stay chained explained

    But it comes down to you,
    And it all comes down to you
    We're doing it right but we need you

    This time loop, this time
    Revolves around you
  • He was a lonely cowboy
    he had no need for hands
    nobody knows how he killed
    but hell, they be..

    Passive aggressive cowboy
    a gang mocks him with all their 7 hands
    put his face in mud to kiss the pigs
    they don't know he talks with them
    in his mind.

    From the sky fell down an angel
    when he was just about five
    told him god lives in the future
    then he left walking about 3 miles.

    He now has power in his mind.

    Passive aggressive cowboy
    told the pigs to squeal real hard
    the gang covered their ears in disarray
    chaos followed, guns ablaze
    flesh got torn, blood and smoke blend
    all but the pigs died in that farm
    they after got served human bacon
    by the Gunman without hands
  • Morning rise, blood red horizon,
    An omen for the enemy within
    Murmurs carried on the lips of fearful wives
    Fervour, incandescent rage

    Khaki seas of special stars underneath,
    Shoulder to shoulder we’re screaming
    Jackboots crushed beneath solidarity,
    The best in life is seized

    Waging sin

    Tried to break,
    Steel resolve
    Eyes on fire
    To the wall
    Mine to take,
    All for one
    Armed to fire
    Kings will fall

    Footsteps flying each and everywhere,
    Driven and undone by seconds dripped away
    Sight the figure black and squeeze the trigger,
    Walk into the promised land

    It was said that we would win in arms,
    A monolithic mass of femme fatale
    Flexing arms and acrid fumes of dreams,
    Horror on the face of domination

    Scarlet grin

    Tried to break,
    Steel resolve
    Eyes on fire
    To the wall
    Mine to take,
    All for one
    Armed to fire
    Kings will fall

    Falling down, without a whimper
    Frozen like stone in eternal time
    When it’s finally time, I give my life
    To win the only struggle I’ve known

    Rest my weary head upon the soil
    Taste the life leaking out of me
    Sacrifice the avarice, the ruby shatters
    Eradicate the walking dead

    Liberation

    Tried to break,
    Steel resolve
    Eyes on fire
    To the wall
    Mine to take,
    All for one
    Armed to fire
    Kings will fall

    I’m dreaming of this world,
    I carry it within my heart

    I’m dreaming of this world,
    I carry it within my heart

    Tried to break,
    Steel resolve
    Eyes on fire
    To the wall
    Mine to take,
    All for one
    Armed to fire
    Kings will fall

  • 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*

    Given too much freedom
    It was wasted on this fool

    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

    If wishes were horses, pure and running swift

    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
    Back down the drain
  • You get one shot, better make it count..

    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
    As so many have failed
    As so many have failed

    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

  • 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

    The shade invades

  • [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

    Kinda wanted dead or alive

    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!

    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)

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Concert_%28Vermeer%29#/media/File:Vermeer_The_concert.JPG

    Backstory - The Concert, a 1664 Painting by Johannes Vermeer, was stolen in 1990 from the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston. Massachusetts, USA, and still remains missing. It is currently the world's most valuable missing painting, valued at over $250 Million (probably more due to its infamy). A reward still stands for $10 Million for its safe return.

    ----------

    It was 1664
    A depiction of harmony
    High class instructor
    A singer and prodigy

    It was 1990
    2 thieves as policemen
    Guards tied up tightly
    The case still proceeds on

    An instructor plays lute with 2 girls
    Practicing for the cotillion
    The most valuable stolen art in the world
    Worth over $250 million

    A singer, a player, a teacher
    Innocence in the foreground
    In the back something deeper
    Sex and sky, meanings confound

    The robbers posing as good guys
    First-timer, a rocker - the sentries;
    Tricksters, they, took the prize
    Bypassing safeguards to entry

    And now the painting is taken
    The Concert, done by Vermeer
    A daring and profitable break-in
    Mistakes now abundantly clear

    On the rear wall the likely guess
    as far as most can tell
    are Baburen's The Procuress
    and Wooded Landscape, by Ruisdael.

    But who has taken The Concert
    Who's the burglar and his partner
    Many theories have been heard
    about Isabella Stewart Gardner

    Mysteries of paintings
    Whole world pines to reclaim
    But rescue chances are fading
    And what's left are empty frames.
  • Vincent van Gogh - Café de Nuit

    Café de Nuit by Reese's masterpieces

    I don’t know where I’m going
    And I don’t know where I’ve been
    But I know the absinthe's flowing
    In this café that I am in

    I stumble and I fall, it doesn’t matter at all
    ‘Cause we’re all friends here (are we friends here?)
    We’re misfits all around, too many drunks to count
    But we’re all friends here (are we friends here?)

    Something is off about this place, don’t you feel it too? (I do, I do, I do)
    Can’t put my finger on it though, now, how ‘bout you? (It's true, it's true, it's true)

    There’s a lady of the night here
    With a drunkard by her side
    My guess is soon they’ll disappear
    In the darkness of the night

    If you’re down and out of luck, or you've stopped giving a fuck
    You still have friends here (are we friends here?)
    Everyone is quite discreet, in this small Café de Nuit
    You still have have friends here (we're all friends here)

    No, I’m not as say as you drunk I am, I’ve only had a few (It's true, it's true, it's true)
    But something is off about this place, I swear it’s true (I do, I do, I do)

    I’m spinning around, spinning round, too close to the ground, where nothing was found
    Inside of this place, it’s too hard to face, all of the disgrace
    We all despair and we’re gasping for air, as I’m saying my prayer, on this god-awful chair
    I really do think we’re all close to the brink so hand me my drink

    Something is off about this place, don’t you feel it too? (I do, I do, I do)
    Can’t put my finger on it though, now, how ‘bout you? (It's true, it's true, it's true)
    No, I’m not as say as you drunk I am, I’ve only had a few (It's true, it's true, it's true)
    But something is off about this place, I swear it’s true (I do, I do, I do)

    Sun bleached bones
    Burnt red Earth

    Born of the clay
    Of spit and dust
    What's come before
    Rests in rust

    Ash and smoke
    In heavy air
    Skull and beak
    Ancient prayer

    Stolen glimpse of what's behind
    Thunder cracked and split the sky

    Dead kingdom
    Dirty river
    Are you the deceiver
    Or the redeemer

    Red clay
    Taste of blood
    The sky pumps
    And the river runs

    Stolen glimpse of what's behind
    Thunder cracked and split the sky

    Heat lightning
    Thieves cry's
    Stolen glimpse of what's behind

    Kingdom of dirt
    River of dead
    Thunder cracked and split the sky

    Verse 1:
    I went out on a limb
    And said what I feel
    But I was so scared
    So I made you a deal

    Pre-chorus:
    You thanked me for being honest
    But I hope you keep your promise

    Chorus:
    You filled my heart like a balloon
    And now it's floating away
    I tried to shoot for the moon
    But I fell flat on my face
    I'm so sorry that I did this to you
    It wasn't fair what I put you through
    And I'm glad that you say its fine
    But I hope it's true that all wounds heal with time

    Verse 2:
    You said if I asked you then
    Things might have been different
    But I was too caught up
    In every move, every inference
    To see that I wasn't alone
    In being so lonely
    But as love floats away
    I fall apart slowly

    Pre-chorus:
    You thanked me for being honest
    But I hope you keep your promise

    Chorus:
    You filled my heart like a balloon
    And now it's floating away
    I tried to shoot for the moon
    But I fell flat on my face
    I'm so sorry that I did this to you
    It wasn't fair what I put you through
    And I'm glad that you say its fine
    But I hope it's true that all wounds heal with time

    When the wind turns south
    As the night becomes dawn
    We must meet the waves
    At the calm before the storm


    My father took me by his side
    He said "darling this is far from an easy life
    So don't you slack, and work with pride
    Today I show what we do to survive"

    We walked for hours just to find the place
    A lonely stretch of cliff overlooking the bay
    The wind was fierce and it pained my face
    But soon enough I got used to the salt and the spray


    Those days were hard
    And I was just a lamb
    But thank you for being tough on me
    Because it made me who I am


    My father taught me how to cast the net
    He said "darling cast it wide and straight ahead
    Don't let this wind make you give up yet
    Today you show me how far you've come instead"

    I used to listen but I didn't speak
    But by that river with my father I was truly free
    I grew strong as he grew weak
    Until one day he couldn't go on and he rejoined the sea


    Those days were hard
    Without his guiding hand
    But thank you for being tough with me
    Because it made me who I am

    Days will be hard
    But I don't give a damn
    Because I had you to teach me
    And it made me who I am


    Now I've my own daughter by my side
    And I tell her "darling this is far from an easy life
    So don't you slack, and work with pride
    Today I show what we do to survive"

    I am sure I am king / I'm sure that I am something
    Rule between the lines / Who knows what is mine
    Stare into my eyes
    I'm staring into you
    I can see your soul
    Can you see mine too?

    Tell me what you see
    Anything I could, I could, that I could
    Anything, anything that I could be

    I don't know who I am
    But I don't need a plan
    To figure it out

    Cause whatever I do
    What's good enough for me is good enough for you
    Whoever it is inside my head
    Is someone who'd do everything I did
    And say everything I said

    [That's a lot of words. Let's leave the solo bit alone and rock out.]

    I am sure I am king / My domain is inside my skin
    No power over me / Will stop me from being free

    What I'll come to be / In time, I'm sure, I'll see

    settle for a moment
    while the silence clears
    let the people in your midst
    cower in fear

    your hands will dive
    your body will die

    Reunited in the flesh
    Of a thousand thousand sins
    You shed your blighted faces
    and reveal the fragrant skin

    Until the light
    Fades for ever more

    So much to see, so much to buy
    Places to go, places to fly
    For me to eat others must die (shinderu)
    How would you like to make that pile a little higher?

    Listen to me, I’ve seen the truth
    Take every item at the booth
    I buy your time, you sell your youth
    Always another product to acquire

    What some call virtue some call sin
    If it’s too confusing, put it in the bin
    With all that’s out there, why look within?
    Take all your worries, throw them on the pyre

    And I was born with all this might
    So why not try to win the fight?
    And if you lose, wasn’t I right?
    So light the torch and jump into the fire

    In life, nothing is free (no)
    That’s why it feels so good to be me (yeah)
    And while you toil and bleed
    I get what I want, I get what I need

    For every triumph blood was spilt
    And I’m incapable of guilt
    You hold the blade, I hold the hilt
    You know I’m right, quit calling me a liar (liar)

    And no one else is wondering why (why)
    I get to laugh, you get to cry (aw)
    They look in awe, up at the sky
    And ain’t I something to admire?

    So give it up, follow the plan
    Cause after all, you’re just a man (nothing more)
    Just give me everything you can (yeah)
    So you can push me just a little higher

    And now you’re empty, fill the hole
    Pretend you have a little control
    But don’t forget, I own your soul
    And I always gets everything that I desire

    In life, nothing is free (no)
    That’s why it feels so good to be me (yeah)

    You had to carve him out, you're bleeding out I know
    A woman torn over a man

    Verse 2:

    But I'm modern, not as weak
    Don't let the memory of a man be your demise
    Don't let him take this part of me

    An embrace of the faded lovers, dystopian tears cried
    A rider in the shadows, The tiger weeps near
    As the wind blows through here, the colour of fear



    When there is light, there is darkness
    When there is colour, there is none


    The sea like a painting
    The sky like a dream
    The peace that's inside me
    As fragile as a ship with butterfly wings
    The horse like a skeleton
    The meal an impression
    The time just flies through me
    As fragile as a ship with butterfly wings

    Verse 2:
    Pour the vodka like water, the water like wine
    The pain that consumes me, keep saying i’m fine
    The clocks melt around me, the screams on their face
    He is beside me, as I try to keep chase.

    When there is colour, there is none

    As fragile as a ship with butterfly wings
    The horse like a skeleton
    The meal an impression
    The time just flies through me
    As fragile as a ship with butterfly wings

    The wash of the waves
    This is how we take life so freely
    So soon we just fade.

    A crow's waiting up on the ladder
    No peace no, between the climbers

  • Painting: Judith I (Salomé) by Gustav Klimt

    https://images.fineartamerica.com/images/artworkimages/mediumlarge/2/3-judith-i-gustav-klimt.jpg

    *** I want to note that though technically this is a painting of Judith with the head of Holofernes, it has also been attributed to the story of Salomé with the head of Saint John the Baptist. Both figures display elements of female power and rage, though albeit one in a more positive light than the other granted, but still an interesting discussion nonetheless.

    Lyrics:

    Tell me why I should be your dancing girl
    Why should I just hand over all the world

    Be careful with your beckoning
    It brings along a reckoning the like
    Of which you’ve never dreamed
    And nothing is as it ever seems here
    Watch and learn as I teach you fear

    Everything wanton, everything pious
    Everything you wanted in the darkness of my eyes
    Whispering and covetous, the start of your lies
    Wait until the denouement, someone is here to die

    Everything broken, everything ground
    Everything you wanted buried by sound
    My decorous veil, where my feet grace the ground
    Tonight, my love, someone is going down

    Yes, you’re going down

    Tell me do you finally know your regret
    Or do you not realize what’s coming yet

    Mother may I dance so sweet
    Make them fall in neat little lines
    Cowering glances and lustful moans
    For nothing can they atone tonight
    I’m here to take what’s mine by right

    Everything wanton, everything pious
    Everything you wanted in the darkness of my eyes
    Whispering and covetous, the start of your lies
    Wait until the denouement, someone is here to die

    Everything broken, everything ground
    Everything you wanted buried by sound
    My decorous veil, where my feet grace the ground
    Tonight, my love, someone is going down

    You made demands and I cowed to your will
    But with one flutter of my hand I command you still
    Frozen you bask in the beauty of all I have to offer
    Unknowing the ill fate of what it is you proffered
    You’re mesmerized by the curl of lip and curl of hip I swirl
    Giving up—you think—all the secrets of the world
    But you’re forgetting what you’ve promised, what you’ve said
    And with my bow I’ll be asking for his head

    Everything wanton, everything pious
    Everything you wanted in the darkness of my eyes
    Whispering and covetous, the start of your lies
    Wait until the denouement, someone is here to die

    Everything broken, everything ground
    Everything you wanted buried by sound
    My decorous veil, where my feet grace the ground
    Tonight, my love, you're going down

    I walk by
    Tall grass under my eyes

    As I cross over
    What I see under
    The place we said our goodbyes

    Flowers and leaves float away
    A sign of departure
    Nothing lasts forever

    Everything I say
    Echoes across
    Distorted by the waves

    Every single thing that I see
    Ripples fall away
    Can't be saved

    What is looking back at me
    I can't figure out what I see

    I look down to someone I don't know
    But in you I see my true reflection

    Cold, rushed, washed away from reality
    It's in you I see my true reflection

    My true reflection
  • I’m dreaming of majestic halls,
    Summer snow and crimson walls…

    When the sun rises baby,
    I’m thinking of your granite eyes
    My supple lips, your fingertips,
    Whistling wind, bodies intertwined
    We kiss and laugh baby,
    Dance away right through the night
    I’m tryna be comely, love me
    Pull me closer in

    Tonight I’m loving him in all his might,
    Mountain tall, I’m in his thrall

    Feel so high, in the sky
    The pyres, so grand in their size
    Put it in my fire, baby,
    Show me how hard men rise
    Swing with me, mountain king
    I wanna hang on to the prize
    Let me go now, baby
    And undress me with your eyes

    Tonight I’m loving him in all his might,
    Mountain tall, I’m in his thrall

    Now I enter you baby,
    Push in this blade, surprise!
    Powers fleeting, much like bleeding,
    The time of my family’s arrived,
    I’ve seduced you, now reduced you,
    My soldiers have taken the keep
    One last kiss, in my bliss
    A woman may take this crown to keep

    Tonight I’m taking all of his might,
    Men will fall, to a girl with no name
    Regicide, song of the blade,
    I’ve got it made!

    Inspired by I. Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.

    Buried and waiting
    I want to be soaring
    Our time has not yet come

    Watching and praying
    I will not be staying
    We're waiting for the sun



    Red, yellow, gold
    The fires are still cold
    As the tales where told
    Burning uncontrolled

    Many years ago
    From the far below
    Through the dark shadows
    Emerging through the glow

    A forgotten dream
    Not what it seemed
    Flying through streams
    Between dazzling beams

    Step up to the line
    The lift off is mine
    I can see the signs
    Now time to shine


    Rising from the ashes
    Legendary creature reborn

    Visions past and future
    An oracle of all times

    Flashes of vibrant colour
    Feathers shining like no other

    Rising with no limit
    Legendary creature takes off

  • Music adapted from Der Holle Roche from Mozart's The Magic Flute
    Libretto from Dies Irae
    -------------------------------
    Dies iræ, dies illa,
    Solvet sæclum in favílla:
    Teste David cum Sibýlla.

    Quantus tremor est futúrus,
    Quando Iudex est ventúrus,
    Cuncta stricte discussúrus!

    Tuba, mirum spargens sonum
    Per sepúlchra regionum,
    Coget omnes ante thronum.

    Mors stupébit, et natúra,
    Cum resúrget creatura,
    Iudicánti responsura.

    Recordáre, Iesu pie,
    Quod sum causa tuæ viæ:
    Ne me perdas illa die.

    Salva me!

    English translation:
    The day of wrath, that day,
    Will dissolve the world in ashes:
    David being witness along with the Sibyl.

    How great will be the quaking,
    when the Judge is about to come,
    strictly investigating all things!

    The trumpet, scattering a wondrous sound
    through the sepulchres of the regions,
    will summon all before the throne.

    Death and nature will marvel,
    when the creature will rise again,
    to respond to the Judge.

    Remember, merciful Jesus,
    that I am the cause of Thy journey:
    lest Thou lose me in that day.

    King!
    Save me!

    now an obsession builds
    family friends neglected
    relationships affected
    road to ruin
    all other things rejected
    simple isolation
    every note in place
    my only space

    obsessed with this repetitive melody
    stuck in my head repeatedly
    people want me to to sing this
    I don’t want to but hey
    its stuck in my head all day
    stuck in my head all day

    going to bed or taking a bath
    overwhelming and filling my tasks
    still stuck in my head
    just get it just get it away
    stuck in my head all day
    make it go away, please

    my own brain betrayed
    my thoughts in complete disarray

    discomfort
    anticipation lasts
    what’s up next
    angst filled anticipation
    prisoner of my own creation
    hostage
    feeder to my desperation
    simple isolation
    every note in place
    my angst filled space

    obsessed with this repetitive melody
    stuck in my head repeatedly
    people want me to to sing this
    I don’t want to but hey
    its stuck in my head all day
    stuck in my head all day

    going to bed or taking a bath
    overwhelming and filling my tasks
    still stuck in my head
    just get it just get it away
    stuck in my head all day
    make it go away, please

    unravelling
    reliving
    my entire life
    unable to
    reconcile how we strive
    and accomplish anything

    unravelling
    waiting
    anticipating
    madness!
  • Give me solace in this broken space
    Give me semblance of saving faith
    Now I lay me down to sleep
    One last breath my soul to keep

    Can you erase the sin and fear
    Let me lie with conscience clear
    Bleeding out in a blanket night
    Fading out in a falsehood light

    I’m going down without a fight
    Letting go of Ritalin-fueled nightmares
    Solace is a thing of scarcity
    I hear you praying somewhere for my sorry soul
    Stop your whispering calls
    To a devil who’ll never know
    Nothing really matters (really matters) on the whole
    Now that I am no more

    I die for the sins that bore me
    And all the ones that came before me
    There’s no redemption to be found here
    I die for the weft that waned me
    And for the slings that never hanged me
    There’s no more to life than this living lie


    You want more time to clean the slate?
    Too little, angel, and much too late
    Everything you thought was innocence—faked
    And you’re lying to us both to escape this fate
    Now that you know the end is near
    Face up to all your decadent fears
    Admit you never had what it takes
    To figure out the transient highs and rakes
    You never were the one you thought you had
    Now your sighs are screams instead
    Let me die before it’s too late
    Face your fears and face the hate

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    -----------------

    I want that you should feel
    the essence that's within me
    and the spirit inside us all
    Light and sound in the hall

    Thumping and rising ethereal
    Pumping from public material
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion

    Floating over shores that we know
    Ripples continually washing
    White noise bathing with vibrance
    Rejoicing in heavenly guidance

    Casting off deep seated boundaries
    Musing on southwardly autumn
    Never alone, eternal companions
    Ourselves floating, reveried abandon

    Pleasure expressing our musings
    Spirits are trailing above us
    Between edges of earth and water
    We've seen bridges beckoing yonder

    Drifting Elemental Wonder x4

    Mind captured in fascination
    Our eyes beholding the splendor
    Breathtaking peeks through the window
    Earthshaking streaks from the inflow

    Snowflakes above, sand down below
    Driftwood, floats over the waves
    Reflections of love in the mist
    From the shores we have been kissed

    Leaves fall from the heavens
    Tides come, they push and they pull
    Dancing for miles, sweat breaking
    Dreams of gentle waves wake me

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    The beats keep rising ethereal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    A peace overcomes me so surreal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion

    Right here, now. there and then
    Old thoughts of likenesses float past
    Presented far off the horizon
    From the shores we now see an island

    Myself always sees you eternal
    Facing our next steps unknown
    The beautiful voices uplifting
    Impalpable breezes, we're drifting

    Drifting mysterious ocean
    Pulls you towards me closer and closer,
    We move, the music is surging
    Gather, our bodies are merging

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    The beats keep rising ethereal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    A peace overcomes me so surreal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion
  • What we have is falling
    Eyes wide open

    Each day we see it
    Sacrifice

    Each day we believe it
    Wake inside

    A dream all but forgotten
    Save this life

    A heart just for stealing
    Open wide

    Take one, leave one
    Hold one, fear one
    Keep one, dream one
    Leave me alone
    I just want this
    I just want this
    Take me home Take me home

    Forgotten left bleeding
    Assign

    Far from this feeling
    Pass a fire

    Born of this mission
    Clear my mind

    Choice of the freedom
    Blessed alive

    Take one, leave one
    Hold one, fear one
    Keep one, dream one
    Leave me alone
    I just want this
    I just want this
    Take me home Take me home
    (repeat with ad libs if needed)

    And my Spirit hath rejoyced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the loneline?s of his handmaiden, for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me ble??ed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me, and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him, throughout all generations. He hath ?hewed ?trrength with his arm. He hath ?cattered the proud in the imaginations of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their ?eat, and hath exalted the humble and meak. He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath ?ent empty away

    Take one, leave one

  • I'll Move On
    Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2

    I exist just to spite you
    In spite of your misery
    In spite of me

    The broken hourglass spills
    Into the insatiable mess
    That you've made of me

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    Don't want your chide
    I'd rather take cyanide
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on

    And when you speak
    All my thoughts have fled
    And when you move
    My skin feels its edge

    I won't go on
    Living like this
    I won't go on
    Living with you

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    Don't want your chide
    I'd rather take cyanide
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on...

    I'm, broken, not dead (x2)

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    No more barren reasons why
    No more incessant reprise
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on
  • 0:17

    God, forgive
    For the way I let the flames light underneath my skin
    I let them lick, and burn and turn to dust
    (I'm) ashes within
    0:34

    God forgive my partial blame for the accelerant I feed
    I'm not a pyromaniac, just a sinner who's been forced to sin
    Scorching down my throat while I mourn, rightfully scorned
    All tears, fears, blistering, a demon growing their horns
    3rd degree burns free hell's locks like a key
    I wish to flee every part of me, so help me
    So help me(so help me)

    :52

    (God) Lucifer I'm calling out I need an angel now
    The way my blood trickles and drips and slips as shadows find their ground
    The wayward slashes cut and shine and bleed with shame out of my veins
    Yeah, this haze is exactly what I wanted from this pain

    1:09
    [Hook]
    On my knees, wounds still bleeding
    While I beg on graveled ground
    When will it be alleviated, brought to life (brought to live)
    Existing, under Your command
    Where to feel
    Is to hurt
    And I'm being hurt,
    I'm being hurt

    1:43

    God forgive
    My lack of acceptance that I'm being heard
    My faith that wavers when I see others get their turn
    The vicious cycle I find myself surrounded by
    Where the only question left , the only question asked is why
    The answers are left floating like a boat on an ocean
    No direction when it's in motion
    Yet, the instance that I stop showing devotion, you close the door on me
    I thought you protected those without belief
    Or is it just that you have a problem me?

    2:18
    [Hook]

    2.52
    Lucifer, I turn to you once more
    Don't you grant favors? I find myself in need for one or more
    I see resemblance in you, I too am my father's wayward son
    I'm not an Icarus, you needn't fear I've never even seen the sun
    I know you know heat like no one does
    So when I tell you about this fire I cannot put out, that burns me from the inside out
    That fills my lungs with smoke and exhaust and exhausts while I trash about
    You are the only one I can still reach out to
    please
  • (The Calming Sound of) A Distant Train
    Chorus melody based on the aria Lasst Mich ihn nur Noch Einmal Küssen from St. Luke's Passion BMV 246

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Verse 1)
    Standing outside the station
    Rain was pouring down
    I saw you climbing aboard
    To ride on out of town

    So here I stand on a crowded platform
    I'm stranded all alone
    What can I do to change your mind
    And make you come back home?

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Verse 2)
    Late at night, I cannot sleep
    The train keeps me awake
    For my baby rides away
    Oh how my heart, it breaks

    I see your auburn hair
    And blue eyes everyday
    In every single face I pass
    You just won't go away

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Solo)

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

  • Verse

    The memory of this place
    Belongs to everyone at once
    But they can't quite put a finger
    On what about it feels so wrong
    It could have sprung out the ground
    10 years since the construction hit
    Someone remembers before it came
    But they don't like to think about change

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity

    Verse

    Once there where forests
    That covered the land
    But now the only trees exist
    to stop land value going down
    You can see movement
    Where no motion exists
    And the town keeps breathing
    Though it's long since dead

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity

    Bridge

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity
  • Stealing he doth do

    From the Archives in plain view

    Running Running again

    With sheet music from a thousand men

    No copyright strike in sight

    He smiled an evil grin in his plight

    Running!

    Fighting!

    Stealing!

    All for musical pleasure!

    Running!

    Fighting!

    Steeling!

    Sheet music is his treasure!

    His quest is almost complete

    Too bad he is missing a sheet

    Off to the studio he goes

    A chiptune he will compose

    The keyboard and controller come out

    His hands flying around and about

    A complete madman he is

    For music is why lives.




    The song came along

    And didn’t take too long

    But something was amiss

    That he couldn't reminisce

    The melody was incomplete

    The rhythm had no beat

    What could it be?

    How could he not see?

    Why…. it was in front of him the whole time

    THE INTERNET

    All the sheet music in one spot

    With one google search

    He found the missing sheet

    His quest….

    Was now complete.
  • Verse
    So hard to build the railroad bridge
    They called it the devil's canyon
    No lawmen here, a town on edge,
    A ghost town now abandoned

    Chorus
    meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Dwelled in Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts

    Verse
    The center of town was called Hell Street
    Gambling halls ran day and night
    2000 people living in the heat
    No one tells of their plight
    The wild west, it was a warning
    The danger was never greater
    When their first lawman was sworn in
    He was buried 5 hours later
    Chorus
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Died in Canyon Diablo

    Verse
    Five more marshals came to town
    They were ready to shoot to kill
    But one by one they were taken down
    So many graves up on Boot Hill
    Nobody's able to tame the beast
    Those that tried met their fate
    The townsfolk left or they became deceased
    And the railroad's coming too late
    Finally the army was called on in
    To try and get it under control
    The deadly air was always haunting
    A city so full of lost souls

    Chorus
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Dwelled in Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    In Hell, Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts.

    Clockwise stir
    Disturb the foam
    I see your face
    As the bubbles form
    In my coffee
    Oh, today is the day

    Watch the trains
    As they crawl in
    Commuter's chorus
    Bursting to sing
    Smile into my cup
    Oh, today is the day


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    You can spin me round, turn me upside down
    But please
    Never let me go again


    Turnstile creak
    And tannoy buzz
    Common pigeon
    And the holy dove
    Hallelujah
    Oh, today is our day

    Crowds disappear
    There's only us
    The sun's a spotlight
    From high above
    They're playing our song
    Cause today is our day


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    Platform two will be our own dance floor
    And please
    Hold me forever more


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    You can spin me round, turn me upside down
    But please
    Never let me go again
  • Look, look, look, look
    She’s got her nose down buried
    Deep in someone else’s book

    Words, words, words, words
    Falling from their mouths
    Like the nests of carrion birds

    Everything known unknown again
    Circling back around the bend

    How long before she figures it out?
    How long before she gets her head out?
    How long before she gets out?
    How long to remove the lingering doubt?
    How long to get the blood out?
    How long before she gets out?

    Get her out
    Get her out
    Get me out

    There’s a story here never willing to be told
    Perpetuated by the old getting older—spinning gold
    How the hell did we let it get this far?
    Who never took their hand out the cookie jar?

    We the people making haste
    Running for our lives in this ever-losing race
    Looking for ways to let ourselves out
    Never stopping to wonder or doubt

    Who started this damn game in the first fucking place?

    Who let the Riot Grrl die on the vine?
    Cutting up emotions into neat little lines
    Swallowed or snorted to make the lies honey
    Anything—and everything—to hasten that money

    And now we cry out that the last bit’s too much?
    Everyone sighing with their pearls in a clutch
    Where were you a decade ago or two or five?
    Why did it take this long for you to be alive?

    And why didn’t you ever ask how to stop this fucking race?

    Get her out
    Get her out
    Get me all the way out of here

    Get me out
    Get us out
    Get everyone out of here

    Get me out
    Get us out
    Let’s get all the way out of here

    Get out
    Get out
    Get out...

    What did I do for you to chastise me, What did I do to make you inflate

    A look at the places, a look at my actions, A look into your eyes I see the tears slip

    Hope is a feeling that makes us do better, but the hope of a victim is that they can break free
    The heroes of our story that we just keep writing, some other difference seems scary to me
    They see a difference, a person not like me, A person whose love is not the same shade
    They feel the emotions being squashed down inside them, the anger replaces and demons are made
    The confusion feels painful, the views that are challenged, the fear to stand up and be called
    The walk and the talk, the words that built cities, the resolve to blame others for what is our fault.

  • Promises baked in a panna cotta
    A spoon of happiness is added up
    It's all wrapped with your broken heart

    I won't leave my house
    I could stay the same but I don't wanna lie

    Don't you ever get tired from all the positive vibes?
    Like a mind game, but you never good at it
    Why don't you try once again to call me back?
    I've got the feeling but I lose the spirit

    I was giving up to give you a try
    Then I feel a feeling left to dry
    You ain't coming to get me back
    You ain't coming to get me back

    I know it is not easy for you when trying so hard
    Although you know in the end you can't win
    Why don't you take a rest of your head and heart?
    Ask yourself, is it me the person you believed in?
    Is it me the person you believe?

    Boss I beg you not to fire me
    I've got a good excuse, you'll see

    Let me tell you how this came to be

    [Verse 1 - the alarm]
    Wake up feeling great before my alarm
    Lie in a bit because what's the harm
    Roll over and yell "oh cock!"
    Because it's nearly eleven o'clock!

    I didn't press the one button to turn it on

    [Verse 2 - Missing a sock]
    Roll out of bed like a sleepy scared invertibrate
    Grab my nearest clothes who cares if they coordinate?
    For my feet - oh no, oh fuck!
    I only have a single sock

    Why does dryer keep eating my socks?

    Like it's leaning to the right
    Unlike other automobiles
    My one has only got three wheels

    I was going to get up early and take it to the garage!

    Verse 4 - change for public transport
    I'll ride to work on the forty-two bus

    My shoe is rubbing at my heel / Can't drive a car without a wheel
    I walk to work and I don't look / And miss one turn I shoulda took
    On some abandoned piece of land / A Martian with six-fingered hands
    Asked how I cope with only five / And said he'll take me for a drive
    He took me to his UFO / And showed me things that I didn't know
    Asked for my brain to run tests on / But I don't have enough of one
    And that's why I'm
    Late for Work today
  • In the reeds
    Entangled fantasy, my mind is bound
    Waterlogged, drowning
    Finding breath

    It’s clear to me
    The proud oak tree was once seed
    Poisoned, dying
    Baby’s breath

    In black, the need
    Blindly feeling the everything of nothing
    Pressure, choking
    One more breath

    Every time I hold you,
    You’re nothing like what I want this to be

    I would dream
    My soul in you, euphoria I would keep
    Fingertips, tracing
    Shallow breath

    Icy crash, reality
    The sun I’ll never see, as I’m drowning
    Grasping, reaching
    Hold my breath

    A welcome breach
    I’m finally red-blooded, gushing
    Sinking, leaving
    To start afresh

    A brand new breath,
    This nightmare ends,
    Cleansing myself, renewing my soul
    This mortal plane I’ve left

  • Close my eyes
    Collapse into my bed, where
    I’ll try to clear my head, but

    No surprise
    I’ve gotten in way too deep, how
    much longer I can keep


    Myself from picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep


    Tried my best
    I kept it to myself, yeah
    So we could still be friends, but

    Love repressed
    Still finds a way to grow, oh
    I couldn’t keep it low, so


    I’m still picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep


    Wish I could sink into this bed
    Clear all the thoughts inside my head
    Forget the way you make me feel
    And dream of anything else, but


    I’m still picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep
  • Verse 1
    Harsh features masked in blood
    An ancient resignation
    Lying facedown in the mud
    A medieval superstition

    Prechorus
    Waters the color of the desert
    A moon the color of the sand

    Chorus 1
    The first letter of the Name
    A heart so white
    Both faces look the same
    By evening moonlight

    Verse 2
    Too far away to hear
    The dancing girls and harlequins
    Retrace the steps that trapped me here
    Watch as the revolver spins

    Chorus 2
    The second letter of the Name
    A heart so white
    Both faces look the same
    By evening moonlight

    Bridge
    Lost in a linear labyrinth
    A bullet in the belly
    The diamonds in the window
    A vicious, vengeful plot

    Chorus 3
    The last letter of the Name
    A heart so white
    Both faces look the same
    By evening moonlight
  • Like the sun

    The drum in my chest goes on and on
    The drum in my chest goes on and on

  • It’s Monday morning, I’m staring out of the window again
    Without a warning, my alarm went off at 6:30 AM
    The coffee’s cold and the sky is grey, I wish it could be any other day
    Monday morning, I pray to god that soon you will end

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today

    Now it’s raining, and I am wishing that I could be in bed
    Eight hours remaining, time is moving so slowly, it’s driving me mad
    Always repeating, always the same, the sound of raindrops on the windowpane
    Fatigue is reigning, over everything else inside my head

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today

    Every week the same again (over and over again)
    This story never ends (over and over again)

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today
  • A depressed optimist with a penchant
    For locking up what I love behind walls
    My sense of music collecting dust when I'm not looking
    Cause I'm not looking forward to pain

    An ex-musician with no strings attached
    A guitar between boxes, never unpacked
    Going searching's just asking for
    Memories to float back up
    Those are ashes that I've laid to rest

    Don't ask me to play you a song
    All I've got is disappointment
    Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
    It just feels wrong
    It sounds so suffocating now

    Borrowing trouble from tomorrow
    Cause yesterday's won't last
    Do I remember still how to hold the chords?
    I know the strength has left me fast

    Not yet a fully fledged coward
    I tried about two years ago
    And that feeling resides, like the tears in my eyes
    On the bottom of my heart, out of control

    Don't ask me to show how it's done
    All I've got is disappointment
    Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
    It just feels wrong
    It sounds so suffocating now
  • Psychopomp

    [Verse]
    It's all an illusion
    Covering what lies beneath
    On the other side

    Only you can see
    The truth of the universe
    It's becoming clear

    Close your eyes and meditate
    In this solitude you know
    You shall find yourself

    Good things come to those who wait
    In the darkness you behold
    What's inside yourself

    [Prechorus 0:45]
    This began with just another easy lie
    This began with just another easy lie

    [Chorus 0:54]
    You are the veil between the worlds
    You are the hand on my shoulder
    Behind the mystery unfurled
    Waits something much older

    Separate the physical from what lies beyond
    In the end, it will all be one

    [Verse 1:39]
    Don't you look too deep
    Look too close and you might see
    What the shadows hide

    Just beyond the veil
    In the corner of your eye
    Something drawing near

    But you shouldn't be afraid
    Once it's over you will know
    What the shadows hide

    Greeted by the one who waits
    Something almost like a crow
    It will be your guide

    [Prechorus]
    This began with just another easy lie
    This began with just another easy lie

    [Chorus]
    You are the veil between the worlds
    You are the hand on my shoulder
    Behind the mystery unfurled
    Waits something much older

    Separate the physical from what lies beyond
    In the end, it will all be one
  • In this moment in time,
    The highest peaks unfold.
    The world begins to shape,
    Like stories we were told.

    And went just when settling down,
    It all comes to unwind.
    Quickly begins to fall,
    Down to a trough.

    This Moment in Time

    This Moment in Time

    For every coming tide,
    Is just bunch of waves.
    And every coming wave,
    A bunch of water drops.

    Just as the water climbs,
    It all comes to stop.
    Then it recedes away,
    Every last single drop.
    ---
    Every mountain has a peak,
    Every ocean has a floor.
    Just as we learn to speak,
    Were already at deaths door.

    We're all moments in time,
    A story of ups and downs.
    And while this moment is mine,
    Its just a drop, in a wave, in a tide, that'll always come around.

    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
  • Found myself in this crumbling place
    Hell is raging all around
    Mud and guts upon my face
    No way I’m dying in this far away place

    I hear her cry, reaching out for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Step by step, I’m walking on and out
    Home is where I’ll head

    Whispers of the dead,
    Chilling my soul, I’m back in the role
    Back in the romance I was fed,
    I strip away the fable and clear my head

    Sipping rum in Montego Bay,
    An age apart from where I’ve been
    From khaki to a suit, I went my way
    To here in paradise, for the rest of days

    I hear her cry, reaching out for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Step by step, I’m walking on and out
    Home is where I’ll head

    One step at a time, on the yellow brick road
    From living for glory, to living for life
    Surrounded by love, came back from the fire,
    My love and my home, our miracle child,
    In family, peace, and love, my only desire

    I hear it call, beckoning for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Every step I walked it moved me on
    Home is where I rest my head
    Been to war, been with family
    I’ve lived and loved and found my peace
    Been a thousand places, seen so many faces
    And loved the world that wanted me dead

    Home
  • Lost and confused since junior high
    No one ever answers me why
    Lost in love without a lover
    I'm Helpless and scared all over
    Lying on my back like a junebug

    Squirming in place, dying alone
    Everyone leaves me on my own
    Pick me up and throw me away
    What's the point of living today?
    Lying on my back like a junebug

    Here I'm Blowing in the wind
    My corpse is passing by
    Who would wanna be your friend
    When nothing is alright
    Right
    Right

    Yet I will try and try again
    To find me that one special friend
    And although hapless I might be
    True romance is my only dream
    Lying on my back like a junebug

    Here I'm Blowing in the wind
    My corpse is passing by
    Who would wanna be your friend
    When nothing is alright

  • Love, listen to me
    Give in to me
    There’s not an option to resist this love
    Just the scent of it
    Your blissful ignorance
    I’m salivating, waiting

    Now, with this kiss I seal your fate
    Spent nights in search of you
    The window open, no escape
    I’m biting into you

    Suck you dry, not a drop goes to waste
    I’m in love with the taste and I’m getting away with it
    I don’t know why but I want you to crack
    Wings spring from your back and then fly away with me
    The hand of fate is a curious thing,
    It’s a curious thing and there’s no controlling it
    Exsanguinate then bring you back to life,
    So I can kill you twice you have no say in this

    “I only wanted to be loved by another then the last thing I remember is the dirty taste of iron.
    I still believed, had inspirations and dreams. You can’t do this to me!”
    You have no say in this
    “You chose me but I didn’t choose you and I didn’t choose this hell you’re putting me through.”
    You wanted love but bit off more than you can chew
    It’s time to pay dues
    You have no say in this

    Blood, owner unsure
    There is no cure
    Only a rising tide of blood
    Passed from tongue to tongue
    Gushing from my lungs
    Regurgitating, wading

    Your eyes bulge, corneas turn grey
    Your ribs burst out your chest
    Nothing left but to embrace the change
    And say goodbye to flesh

    You came here, such a powerful force
    I pulled you off of your horse and I’m getting away with it
    Look at you now, what a pitiful wreck
    You thought I wanted your sex and now you’re painted red
    You scream for help but nothing comes out
    Just blood in your mouth, you just have to get used to it
    Your suffering has only started, my dear
    I’m so happy you’re here.
    You have no say in this

    Seek and destroy, the cycle goes on
    Pack all your molted skin into your Louis Vuitton
    Spread your crooked wings, take off into the night
    Continue the rampage, straying further from light

    Sucked you dry, not a drop went to waste
    I’m in love with the taste and I’m getting away with it
    Look at you now, what a pitiful wreck
    You thought I wanted your sex and now you’re painted red
    The hand of fate is a curious thing,
    It’s a curious thing and there’s no controlling it
    Your suffering has only started, my dear
    I’m so happy you’re here.
    You have no say in this
  • Verse 1
    Reaching out to infinity, it seems
    There exists a universe in me
    With passing time, like a sandstone from the sea
    I'll cease to be, spread out in space by entropy
    A god without a means

    Chorus 1
    The space between every atom in my form
    Is filled with stars, their solar flares magnetic storms
    And what's the use seeking to take more than I need
    These ecru bones are housing galaxies

    Verse 2
    And just as life depends on me until I die
    In cosmic tides an atom here am I
    And when I die, my universe still will reside
    And truly thrive, till I'm reborn to many lives
    A universe collides

    Chorus 2
    The starry skies extending vast before my eyes
    A paltry prize when all of life within me lies
    Do those in me fight wars to claim my rightful name
    Does God above regard me as I regard them?

    Bridge

    Chorus 3/Outro
    The space between every atom in my form
    Is filled with stars, their solar flares magnetic storms
    And what's the use seeking to take more than I need
    These ecru bones are housing galaxies
    I know my place in outer space is just a part
    I am the End just as I know I am the Start
    In unbleached sheets I'll cease to be with church's chimes
    I am but stardust swept up in the sands of time

    The crystal clear, blue surface
    The place where you can’t breathe
    Is where you’re doomed to serve us

    Come serve us

    You’ll be surprised
    By your demise
    ‘Cause all you hear is me

    Come hither
    Come find me
    Together, we’ll
    Fall blindly

    Into this
    Blissful water
    We’ll only need
    Each other

    Something you’ve never seen
    Enchanted by my love song
    You thought aquamarine
    Was safe but you were dead wrong

    You are dead wrong
    You are dead

    My siren call
    It caused your fall
    Still all you hear is me

    Come hither
    Come find me
    Together, we’ll
    Fall blindly

    Into this

    We’ll only need
    Each other

    I can feel it getting colder
    Can you feel me crystallize?
    Can you see the childish wonder
    Laying just beneath my eyes?

    We can get lost in this wonder
    And forget what's all around
    Just look up at the cloudy sky
    As it snows upon the ground

    (Chorus)
    We were having a awful night
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted us into the clouds

    We were climbing up the walls
    And then the snow came down
    And the world got lost in the shroud

    (Verse)
    Whether blizzard or a flurry
    Or else something of the same
    Love is falling from the heavens
    In 6-pointed crystal planes

    Men and women walk together
    With their children hand-in-hand
    Everybody is a neighbor
    Within the snow-covered land

    (Chorus)
    The world was crumbling around us
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted their spirits high

    The people were losing their minds
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted them to the sky

    (Bridge)
    No school, no work, no worries at all
    Just lay down and watch the snowflakes fall
    To believe that we were worrying at all

    (Instrumental)

    (Chorus/Outro)
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down...
  • [Verse 1]
    The walls of this house,
    Are wearing thin.

    As I walk I hear,
    memories held within.

    The creaking floorboards,
    Whispering a tale.

    My hands though wrinkled now,
    Still slide up the handrail.

    [Chorus]
    If I ever want to reminisce,
    This house is in my mind.

    As my age begins to grow,
    My memories will decline.

    A past shrouded in fog,
    Begins to lose it’s haze.

    This house is a photo album,
    Favorite thoughts in one place.

    [Verse 2]
    All over this house,
    Great stories are told.

    Each crack and blemish,
    An epic tale unfolds.

    The people all around me,
    Shrouded in sepia.

    Although they are long gone,
    Their smiling faces remain in here.

    [Chorus]
    If I ever want to reminisce,
    This house is in my mind.

    As my age begins to grow,
    My memories will decline.

    A past shrouded in fog,
    Begins to lose it’s haze.

    Leyte! Down in the Gulf
    Thousands there died
    Japan's ships weren't enough
    Kamikazes , First-ever - hit them broadside

    Biggest navy war
    ever in history
    Men - 10,000 score
    in chaotic misery
    No unified command
    Thirty three ships went down
    I.J.N. was undermanned
    Allies came aground

    Kamikazes could not stop them
    Allies took the Philippines
    Japan losing all their warships

    Protect Okinawa Isle
    Called the Yamato, it destructs

    MacArthur's sworn return
    They all fought so bravely
    Philippines overturned

    Shattered hulls in Leyte Gulf , sunken hulks in Leyte Gulf
    Skulls in mud in Leyte Gulf , flowing blood in Leyte Gulf

    Kamikazes could not stop them
    Allies took the Philippines

    Largest Battleship there was
    Protect Okinawa Isle
    Torpedoes sunk it, it destructs

  • Verse 1:
    Come and see the sunrise, getting up for good times, feeling like I’m so high
    From the forest to the east, the ocean and the beach, know the best is gonna be mine
    Can’t let the poison infect me, hard to ignore the screams it hides
    The dawning of a new day, gonna win it my way, in good time

    Prechorus:
    The passion of my life, winning wars against society, liberate them all or bust
    Their pain and their anguish, hard for me to banish, all the disgust
    Each battle I deny
    Is one more blow I land

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ll find a way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    I’ll seize the day in Fuchsia City today
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Wash away the sins of play
    Find my strength to lead the way
    See the smile in empty eyes
    Wake up to forever days

    Verse 2:
    Fire, water and stone, crashing through to the bone, fly into your doom
    Blood and thunder and rage, like ripping out the page, dominating the room
    I reach out to the monster, they’re crying out, want an end to the suffering
    In my heart I can fight, gonna do what is right, save humanity bleeding

    Prechorus:
    The mission of my life, fixing our society, pacify the fear and bloodlust
    Live in harmony with nature, everything will vanish, all the mistrust
    No battles, we deny
    Peace is close at hand

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ll find a way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    I’ll seize the day in Fuchsia City today
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Wash away the sins of play
    Find my strength, to lead the way
    See the smile, in empty eyes
    Wake up to forever days

    [solo]

    Bridge:
    Their nuzzles, their roars, they’re magical
    Their love, devotion, my heart soars

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ve found the way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    Fuchsia hair flies, come what may
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Washed away, in arms we play
    Found the strength to lead the way
    See the smiles, the sparkling eyes
    Forward into a brand new day

  • I am the night rider
    I am a rocker
    I am a roller
    Im an out of controller

    Do you see me, toecutter?
    Do you see me, man?

    And a steering wheel in hand

    I am the night rider
    cruising at the speed of fright
    Fuel injected suicide
    Hotter than a rolling dice

    I am the chosen one

    On a rubber road to freedom

    What a lovely day
    On The Fury Road

    I am the Road Warrior
    The former bronze
    Once had a family
    But those days are gone

    New blazing hellscape
    A firestorm of fear
    The roads a white line nightmare
    Survive by shifting gears

    My machine needs gasoline
    And so I chase it
    Sweet twisted steel
    And mangled faces

    No hope on the road

  • From the rolling cliffs of Donegal
    To the limestone hills of Clare
    On the steps of Giant's Causeway
    He climbs up every stair

    On the thriving streets of Galway,
    With his fiddle in his hand
    The little boy plays a tune
    The music of the land

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad

    Near the foggy mouth of Bradon
    Nearly obscured from view
    The Boy still plays his fiddle
    And plays the pipes too

    He visits Blarney Castle
    And keens upon the stone
    He sings about the island
    And the people of his home

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad

    As the sun sets upon Dublin
    The boy bids his farewell
    He's played all his waking hours
    Enrapturing the spell

    But as the moon awakens
    And the boy says his goodbyes
    He knows that he'll be back again
    Next time the sun does rise

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad

    I want to give up control

  • Shrinking

    In the winter ever long
    So I shrank in stature
    Intra-verted, gone in months
    Fallen down between

    In the lack of luxury
    Or originality
    I deserted my resolve to court the ground

    By the thorny underwood
    There at last I understood
    To return from here would take another hand
    I was low enough to see
    In the spectral underneath
    Where in heaven's name or hell's I stand

    In the anger of the sun
    On the sky blue plaster
    I could watch my shadow wither
    Dying in between

    In the edge I tried to tread
    Neither blue nor red
    I suppose I'm predisposed to come around

    Then the light became distinct and strange
    I felt the balance rearrange
    Another presence saw me in its waves
    A length of time passed
    A summer storm amassed
    And nourished me back to vibrant cast

    By the status I forsook
    And the growth I undertook
    To return from there had taken all I am
    I'd been low enough to see
    In the artificial seams
    How the hand in mine defines me
    Visibly outlines me
    A bloom of transcendental harmony
  • Sunlight peaking through the blinds again
    Coffee in bed and an 8 am flight
    I miss waking up to a smiling face and a kiss
    Life felt a lot better when you spent the night

    I looked at pictures from our road trip again
    We looked so young and happy and free
    What I wouldn’t give to have those days back
    And have you right back next to me


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things are not okay


    Sunlight peaking through the blinds again
    Coffee in bed and an 8 am flight
    I used to love waking up in your arms
    But now the morning is a lonely sight


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things won’t ever be okay


    The sky feel like the wrong shade of blue
    Maybe it’s just a trick of the light
    But I miss staring up at it with you
    And without that it’ll never look right


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things are not okay

    But I miss staring up at it with you
    And without that it’ll never look right
  • Petals falling to the ground
    The start of the stormy season
    A torrent without reason
    So much you that could drown

    Wandering waiting endlessly
    Is this the right direction
    Looking down at my reflection
    No thoughts just staring mindlessly

    A rose is a gift that is dying
    So why are you even still trying
    I thought it would be enough
    But staying here is so tough

    Wilting is just like quitting
    Can't go back to the beginning
    A rose is a gift that's dying
    It's not even worth trying

    Nothing lasts forever
    Our time together
    Like dying flowers
    And to you I bare my soul
    In the gift of a rose

    Plant a seed to give me hope
    The earth just dried and cracked
    There's no way of going back
    But it's on the envelope

    Love me or love me not
    The countdown is over now
    It's time to leave I'll take a bow
    It will soon be just forgot

    A rose is a gift that is dying
    So why are you even still trying
    I thought it would be enough
    But staying here is so tough

    Wilting is just like quitting
    Can't go back to the beginning
    A rose is a gift that's dying
    It's not even worth trying
  • Dilapidation
    Rising back up again
    Phoenix soaring
    Never learns his lesson
    Crashing down like a meteorite
    Bite the dust like a Deacon bassline
    My heart pulses outside my chest
    Desperate, self intoxicated
    I leave my rest

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    Blackened eyes see right through me
    Your fingertips leave me for dead
    Draw me in with your gravitation
    Then hang me with the words you said

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    Pick up my pieces

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    I feel the spark in the air
    As she plays with her hair
    And the spark in her eyes hits me

    Calling out past this
    The life before this love is gone

  • I'll soon be off, adventure grand
    My spacesuit on, ticket in hand
    Two-hundred-eighty light-years off today

    Counting down from 10 to 1
    Goodbye to them, the moon and sun
    For soon I'm off, to my love far away

    Off through galaxies and endless stars
    Faster-than-light traveling into your arms

    85 parsecs to the pulsar
    And 85 parsecs to you
    There ain't no matter dark enough
    To tear our love in two

    Outside the window's like a dream
    Amazing sights that I have seen
    But nothing that could ever step to you

    Matter strange and novas bright
    Covered by multicolored light
    All this wonder just to cut right through

    Through wormholes and cutting through space-time
    Through nebulae and galactic rime

    42 parsecs to the pulsar
    And 42 parsecs to you
    There ain't no black hole strong enough
    To tear our love in two

    The quest for science is eternal
    But this one thing is true
    It's 42 parsecs to the Pulsar
    And 42 parsecs to you

    Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has activated the warp speed initiative. We are now entering warp speed. Please return your seats and hold onto your handlebars.
    Here we go!!!!

    The flashing star slowly closing in
    I'll soon see the love of my life again

    Just one more parsec to the pulsar
    And one more parsec to you
    There ain't no warp speed fast enough
    To tear our love in two

    Love may be a mystery
    But this one thing is true
    I'm closing in on the Pulsar
    And Darling, I love you

    The rigging will be tied
    We'll fly our flag up high

  • Come all ye children and gather round to me
    I’ll tell you a story of a pirate - not at sea
    But flying through the cosmos with her intrepid crew
    Harbingers of death, sporting grim reaper tattoos

    Her name is Amethyst Valentine, feared throughout the stars
    A beautiful young women with a face that’s battle scarred
    So listen to this story, and remember what I say
    If you see a girl with the mark of the reaper, be sure to stay away

    Oh my oh my, did I hear my name? Oh, you boys are so flattering. You don’t mind if I tell my own story, do you? I didn’t think you would.

    Let me take you back 20 years ago
    You’ll see a young girl driven from her home
    Parents who died young left me with nothing
    All I had left was a mind most cunning

    I became a thief and mastered the trade
    Swindling thousands despite my young age
    Saving up my money to buy my own ship
    Named Reaper’s Revenge by Captain Amethyst

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    I set sail, my eyes on treasure and gold
    And filled our hull with more than we could hold
    I broke the hearts and skulls of many men
    Until I locked eyes on Alex Raven

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    Raven and I fell in love with passion
    Ignoring red flags to fuel attraction
    I thought all was well inside of my head
    Feelings took over and later we wed

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Loneliest in the galaxies
    Her husband likes other women
    And lives his cheating fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Her husband now her enemy
    He better stay on Terra-6
    Or else there will be casualties
  • Space! Time! Black! Hole in space!

    I'd been working all day flying through the milky sea
    Yo ho ho! She'd been working all day
    The S S Startrapper ain't a pretty place to be
    Yo ho ho! Then they took her away

    Now I fear for my life lest I fall in this black hole
    Now she fears for her life lest she gets crushed into dust
    I have to be good or I'll get thrown in the black hole
    Space penal life is not good for her soul

    Oh I may never leave here by threat of laser gun
    I'll orbit round this black hole 'til my sentence is done
    Many years over lightyears distant stars over suns
    I'll orbit round this black hole 'til my sentence is done

    Well I've been countin' the days and rogue planets passin' by
    Seein' sunless worlds they're just passin' me by
    Yes I've been countin' the days and rogue planets passin' by
    Countin' 'til the day we can kiss this ship goodbye
    Countin' 'til the day we can kiss this ship goodbye

  • As a young boy I gazed at the sky
    Dreamed the dream of an adventurer's life
    Was stuck in a world of toil and strife
    Till that man came round with an offer
    An offer
    An offer
    Till that man came round with an offer

    The engines made a horrible roar
    Pushed my stomach right through the floor
    Till I couldn't tell down from up no more
    And I was off on an adventure
    Adventure
    Adventure
    Off on an adventure

    The journeys long space is cold
    It's damn lonely but I'm never alone
    An untold millions of miles from home
    wish I'd never left her
    Left her
    Left her
    I wished I'd never left her

    The pay seems good when you grew up poor
    But you spend it all in the company store
    Still better than dying in the horse head wars
    Either way the rich get richer
    Get richer
    Get richer
    Either way the rich get richer

    Grand dad died of coal black lungs
    A collapse took my father when I was young
    Now I'm pulling the ore off a long dead sun
    I feel I'm cursed to die here
    Die here
    Die here
    I feel I'm cursed to die here

    There's a star burning out in the night
    Now barely a twinkle in my eye
    If I don't make it back alive
    Send my ashes toward her
    Toward her
    Toward her
    Send my ashes toward her.
  • Only some of us have seen a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us have been at sea, but all of us know of the tale

    As far as one can see, there is the sea, endless as space
    As much as one could wish, an endless field of water
    And then there is a single star, that shines its light on countless waves
    A billion golden reflections, brighter than any cluster

    Only some of us were pioneers, but all of us sail the unknown
    Most of us were born and raised here, but all of us call this ship home

    Our thousand year long journey began only sixty years ago
    And yet our thousand year long journey will reach its end nine hundred years from now
    We’re sailing within a sea of endless stars, blurred by the speed of our flight
    We’re shining brighter than any of those stars, our beautiful light

    Nearly none of us witnessed the start, of our journey beyond the stars
    None of us will see the end, and yet we sail forward my friend

    As much as we might dread the day we die, our hope outshines it all
    As much as it might hurt to say goodbye, our memories will outshine it all
    In the end, there'll be a shining star, a planet and many seas to sail
    In the end, we'll reach another shore, and we will tell our children this tale

    Only some of us have seen a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us have been at sea, but all of us know of the tale

    [solo]

    None of us will see a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us will reach this sea, but all of us know of the tale
  • Chorus 1:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a beaut'
    Her paint's all scuffed up and she's got no tractor beam to boot
    Her cargo doors, they creak like hell, the escape pods won't go
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    Verse 1:
    Three more days that we've got left
    'Til all our fuel's gone
    It's brought us far, but not there yet
    A while before we're done
    The radio, it doesn't work
    it's one of Sera's quirks
    Supplies are running low as well
    Three days until we burn

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice
    Soon we will all burn alive!
    As Sera falls apart
    But until that time we'll sing
    Of Sera-6 from Mars!

    Chorus 2:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a belle
    Her doors don't open half the time, and they don't shut as well
    The engine tends to stutter and the headlights just turn off
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    "I just cannae dae it cap'in, I'm geein 'er aw she's got. It's the dilithium crystals...they're fucked!"

    Verse 2:
    Two more days that we've still got
    'Til the engines give out
    We hoped they'd find us, they did not
    We're still floating all about
    The lights have now shut off for good
    We're living in the dark
    And Roger's eating all our food (Goddamnit, Roger!)
    Two days 'til we depart

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice
    Soon we will all burn alive!
    As Sera falls apart
    But until that time comes we'll sing
    Of Sera-6 from Mars!

    Chorus:
    Chorus 2:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a sight
    Her air-lock doesn't function, neither does the air supply
    The cockpit chairs are crooked, control panel's painted on
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    Verse 3:
    One more day, that's all we have
    Morale is wearing thin
    We've got no food or water left
    We're thinking this is it
    Roger's puking out his guts,'cause karma is a bitch (Cue "Goddamnit Roger")
    We're doomed to die out in this ditch
    One day until we're dead

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice
    Soon we will all burn alive!
    As Sera falls apart
    But until that time comes we'll sing
    Of Sera-6 of(from?) Mars!

    Chorus:
    Chorus 2:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a view...

    Oh shit, the engine just shut off, guys.
    What are we gonna do?

    (Screaming, crashing noises)

    "She was the fastest ship we had, she couldn't bring them home.
    And that's the tale of Sera-6, the fastest ship we've known."
  • We’ve travelled so far and we’re almost here
    we are the crew of the spaceship Frontier
    The treasure is rich and they say men disappear
    we are the crew of the spaceship Frontier

    But we are brave and not easily scared
    if only we knew that no one would be spared

    The first to go was Timothy Pratt
    he was a wee boy and a klutz at that
    a mistake was made and the airlock soon broke
    he flew out into space ‘t was the end of that bloke

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were ten
    but so close to our goal, we said, we are brave men

    The next to go was Gregory West
    The body of Pratt attracted an unwanted guest
    While fixing the airlock he felt something creep
    But before he could act, a wound was cut deep

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were nine
    but so close to our goal, we said, this is just fine

    The next to go was Robertus Klipp
    When lights started to flicker in the hall of the ship
    He went to check and thought nothing was wrong
    but he died horribly, oh the monster was strong

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were eight
    but so close to our goal, we challenged our fate

    The next to go was Mauritius Martz
    The alarm was raised and feared filled our hearts
    But amidst the chaos, he fled and hid
    when he was found, his throat was slit

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were seven
    but so close to our goal, we would risk heaven

    The next to go were the two brothers Dunn
    They entered a room but with a lack of oxygen
    The door wouldn’t budge and they gasped for air
    Scratching to survive, but alas, life was unfair.

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were five
    but so close to our goal, we wanted to survive

    The next to go were the captain and his two mates,
    Through the ruckus a mutiny sealed their faiths
    We fought against ourselves blaming each other
    Shooting our guns they became cannon fodder

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were two,
    but so close to our goal, we had to make it through

    The last to go was my mate from Wales
    and I told him “Dead men tell no tales”
    When he saw my intent to kill he knew
    He spoke his last words: “The monster was you”

    The crew counted eleven and now there was one,
    I reached the goal, and the treasure was won.

    I travelled so far and I’m finally here
    They were the crew of the spaceship Frontier
    The treasure is mine and now I’ll disappear
    they were the crew of the spaceship Frontier
  • On those nights he couldn't sleep I laid by his side
    He opened up his soul to me and cried as he tried
    To allow the thoughts that kept him up see the outside
    And I could tell that it scared him to death to try to stay alive

    My husband was
    Not the expressive type
    He didn't ask for much
    One night he just
    Pulled me aside

    He asked
    "Write me the saddest song
    One that will give me a moment's reprieve
    Cast aside what's right or wrong
    One that will give me a moment to breathe
    I know that I'm dying
    The wall's closing in
    I think only you could absolve who I've been
    Won't you write me the saddest song?
    My love?"

    On those days where the pain was too thick to think
    When he could barely stand to throw up in the sink
    When the painkillers killed everything but his pain
    And I could tell the thoughts running through his brain

    My husband was
    Not the expressive type
    He didn't ask for much
    One night he just
    Pulled me aside

    He begged
    "Write me the saddest song
    One that will wipe your memories clean
    Cast aside what's right or wrong
    One that forgets me just like I'm a dream
    I feel more at peace now
    I feel much at ease
    I'm glad that it's over and i get to sleep
    Won't you write me the saddest song?
    Just for me?
    Pretty please?"

    "Won't you write me the saddest song?
    Baby?"
  • I don't know how I got here but I want out
    Trapped in a mineshaft this house swallows whole
    You use my name but only cause I want you too
    It means nothing but a joke to you

    And even when I feel fine
    Theres something at the back of my mind
    The body you see isn't really me
    Caricature in forced contact with reality

    This will change
    This can't change
    At all

    I am a clay figure never kilned
    A body but empty of a soul
    And I don't remember the last time
    I ever felt whole

    And even when I feel fine
    Theres something at the back of my mind
    The body you see isn't really me
    Caricature in forced contact with reality

    This will change
    This can't change
    At all

    Cry on the bathroom floor
    When I see my face in the mirror
    I can't stand to the way he looks
    I'd rather it just disappear

    Thinking about medicne from vanatu
    I'll run away (hold) if I have too
    Can't take the pressure indecision mounting
    This will be my eulogy if I'll don't decide something
    Flipping through a spiral notebooks of names
    Fantasies that I'll might get away from this place
    But I'll probably die in this lonely home
    Taking the truths with me will you even know

    The facade won't hold
  • This breath, it’s pain
    Cut across my tender wound
    Every tick, cold and grey
    Towards the end of you
    Far apart, now we’re close
    Sipping bitter remains
    Fumes, smoke, the green of home,
    One blink, you’re ripped away

    My tears fall, drops of blood
    Fallen down upon the floor,
    You feared you’d linger,
    One moment, and gone

    You’ll always be my home

    Can I have one more day?
    A piece to keep inside
    When you were over the ditch,
    I couldn’t give you the time
    Running through childhood memories,
    Can’t abet regret
    You were meant to live
    But I let our time fall through the sieve
  • It was seven in the morning when the letter came
    I still remember the look on his face when I told him
    We both called in sick into work that day
    We stayed in bed and just hugged all morning

    My daughter Jane sent me a letter today
    I brewed up some tea and went to read it
    I tried and tried, but I just couldn't, somehow,
    I put it down and started to cry

    I went to take the bins out
    I must have got lost
    It's cold out ....
    I'm not quite sure where I am

    A lady saw me and came for me
    She told me she was scared
    She took me to some place and laid me down
    I'm not sure ... where I am

    There's a lady who came here this evening
    She was so nice to me, she gave me biscuits and some goldenrod tea
    Said something about a spot where it grows
    Her mother taught her once, long ago

    I looked at her and asked "How is Jane"
    She didn't answer, she just turned away
    -----
    You are my sunshine,my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    you'll never know, dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away
  • I know there’s something wrong with me
    Don’t know exactly what it could be

    Cuz I call
    but no one ever gets back to me
    And I fall
    But no one helps me to my feet

    I’m just waiting for the end
    For Death to come and take my hand

    Cuz I wait
    but I’ve been waiting so damn long
    And I pray
    Hoping for a word from God
    Bridge:
    No one cares, about me
    No one cares, it’s plain to see
    I’m lying here, waiting for, the death of me
  • [Verse 1]
    I don't wanna be alone,
    I wanna share the weight of the world
    It crushes and it pulls tight
    In the wee hours of the night
    I don't know what to do
    I wish you were here with me
    And I was here with you

    [Pre-chorus]
    A hand to hold
    An ear for secrets told
    A laugh for me
    And for nobody else

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4

    [Verse 2]
    Cold sheets, a restless sleep
    I even dream in solitude
    With all the colour gone
    No reaching out, no searching warmth
    Destined to be alone
    It seems

    [Pre-chorus]
    A hand to hold
    An ear for secrets told
    A laugh for me
    And for nobody else

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4

    [Bridge]
    Brought this on myself
    Faced up to that cold truth
    Of fortunes not being changed
    I haven't seen that proof
    Until then I bide my time

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4
  • Belong

    Verse 1:
    Roll out the map,
    A faded red carpet,
    Leading us to,
    Where you came from.

    You’re there beside me,
    Your smile so warming.
    Promise we’ll get,
    Where you belong.

    The flowing fields,
    The ice-tipped spires,
    You’ve always talked,
    Of where you were born.

    The rapid streams,
    The blue-jay choirs,
    You make it seem,
    I’ve been there before.

    Verse 2
    Your hand in mine,
    We take these strides,
    Just like the day,
    We walked the aisle.

    I said it then,
    I’ll say it now,
    I’ll never break,
    This sacred vow.

    Prechorus
    I will always take you back.
    But I can’t bear to be alone.

    Cause as hard as it is to lose you,
    It’s harder now to let you go.

    Chorus
    I don’t know why you told me,
    That this is where you’ll stay.
    And I can’t help but weep,
    When you say I’ll be ok.

    Why’d you choose,
    Somewhere far away.
    Where I can’t visit everyday.

    Verse 3
    I’ve steeled myself,
    So many times.
    But I still can’t,
    Leave you behind.

    You smile my way,
    Say don’t you frown.
    But I still feel,
    I’ve let you down.

    I’ll try once more,
    To brave this trip.
    But we’ll still be,
    Stuck at the hip.

    It always hurts,
    When at the end,
    I wave goodbye,
    To my best friend.

    Prechorus
    I will always take you back.
    But I can’t bear to be alone.

    Cause as hard as it is to lose you,
    It’s harder now to let you go.

    Chorus 2
    You were meant to grow with me,
    And live through all our days.
    And I can’t help but weep,
    When you say I’ll be ok.

    Why’d you choose,
    Somewhere far away.

    Chorus 3
    You were meant to grow with me,
    But in these fields you’ll stay.
    I’ll scatter you, and while I weep,
    I know I’ll be ok.

    I know why you chose,
    This place so far away.
    Where I can’t visit every day
  • Why you chasing fireflies when you know that they can fly
    Why you chasing lightning strikes when you know they don't strike twice
    Spend your life in day dreams of broken things that no one ever sees.
    Ain't you tired, ain't you tired of losing
    You know you can't solve your problems by blaming someone else
    You can never fix them until you fix your self
    and you'll never catch a cloud with both feet on the ground.
    Ain't you tired, ain't you tired of losing.

    Walk around wearing a mask
    of a perfect person to portray
    Forget the past
    the whole world is a stage
    Never stopped to take the time
    to figure your self out
    Aint you tired
    Aint you tired of losing

    You're losing
    When you tell yourself that everything will be alright
    You're losing
    when you have those thoughts that keep you up all night
    You're losing
    when you remember what you did in the past
    You're losing
    when you're kicking your own ass

    You're losing
    When you tell yourself that everything will be alright
    You're losing
    when you have those thoughts that keep you up all night
    You're losing
    when you remember what you did in the past
    You're losing
    when you're kicking your own ass

    Ain't you tired of losing

    you're losing you're losing
    and you did it to yourself
  • They tell me
    That you’re gone, but
    I still hear your voice
    In all the places we used to haunt

    By the river
    We’d watch the rain
    Alone together
    Reading poems that we saved

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    Sit in the dark
    Explain to myself
    I should move on
    I should move out

    But the crows
    You used to feed
    Still leave gifts at our door

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    [solo]

    Couldn’t you
    At least have let me
    Say goodbye?

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    I guess at least you don’t hurt anymore
    and no one can stop you now
  • [I: Reflection]
    Brothers in arms, we
    The bloodied blade and fang
    Our tale etched in scars
    Upon our flesh

    Your coat, stained
    Your back, bent
    Your eyes, clouded
    Your soul, bright

    As Geri, cherished of Odin
    The brave, the wise, the strong
    As Hati, who hunts the moon
    Forever 'cross the night

    [II: Reminiscence]
    The boundless spirit of youth
    Worn achingly away
    Leaps and bounds and lolling tongue
    As fleeting as yesterday

    Hours spent but never lost
    War-games played to teach
    The sun that never seemed to set
    A bond beyond all reach

    [III: Regret]
    All too soon, it came
    The siren song of war
    The pounding drums, a call
    We answered with fierce joy

    No sword-brother beside
    Your teeth and claws my shield
    Our lives exchanged a dozen times
    Upon our battlefields

    [IV: Revelation]
    Two lives, twined as one
    By Nornir decree bound
    But deep in the Well of Fate
    Skuld cast her dark bones

    Surrounded by moans of the fallen
    I saw your spirit break
    A seed of pain sown deep
    Betrayed by fickle Fate

    [V: Release]
    The killing blow came not in steel
    But foam upon your fangs
    The madness festered deep within
    And stole away your mind

    When you no longer knew my face
    And raged against my touch
    With weeping heart I bared my blade
    And sent you to your rest

    No deeper bond there ever was
    No Nornir, just and fair
    No joyous end for man and wolf
    Just tears upon your cairn
  • I read the news off my cracked phone screen
    The light yawned from the edges
    Screaming what I’m dreading
    I spent my last change on the taxi
    The leather seats felt like her
    On some party girl’s sofa


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    I am a collage of fragmented parts
    Oh to be
    So riddled with scars


    I smelt her scent strapped to my chest
    Her perfume on the seatbelt
    The last sensation I felt
    Exploring daydreams I do best
    Locked under the covers
    Never to recover


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    I am a collage of fragmented parts
    Oh to be
    Is not the way to be


    I told her not to drive but I left her outside
    I never knew she was one to be so full of pride
    If I could have seen the girl from our prom limousine
    Would be the centre of this tormented, mangled crash scene
    I’d have offered her a seat in that hearse-black taxi
    No length of detour would be so tragic for me
    To save the misery of her dramatic entry
    From her steering wheel through the cab’s shattered windscreen


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    Too busy with my mind on her memory
    Oh to see
    What's happened to me
  • There's so much apathy in the circles beneath your eyes
    Omnipresent like a fucking god you don’t believe in

    Help me not let you drown
    My nightmares have found ground
    There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
    Helplessness bleeds on through
    If I were in your shoes
    I couldn't keep trying
    So I'm sorry to ask it of you

    Who you were is already buried six feet under
    And when you scream I'm not alright

    Was it better when you called out my lies?
    Keeping you on drugs to keep you alive
    It's making you survive without existing
    And when you can't cry I'm not alright

    I've always let you down
    My nightmares have found ground
    In realizing I'm the only thing keeping you here
    Despair crippled your youth
    What can I say or do
    To shut off the trauma
    That I can't stop from haunting you
    If I were in your shoes
    I couldn't keep trying
    So I'm sorry to ask it of you

    I keep letting you down 3x
    I kept letting you down
    I can't let you drown 3x
    But I can't stop you now
    How could they leave you alone
    I can't leave u alone
    How could I leave you alone
    I won't leave you alone
    I'll do whatever it takes
    To keep your suicide away


    I've always let you down
    My nightmares have found ground
    There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
  • If the day dawns while the night falls,
    The light of the moon plays through each ray
    As I hear dreams, wish the pain clean
    The colours play, racing through my mind
    A deeper sorrow, a happiness’ borrowed
    Call through time to watch the past bleed
    Sending heroes, to the battles glow
    A fighter lost to the raging war
    Internal demons, play with masks of feelings
    See the smile dance on my face
    Another villain, pulls the strings of freedom
    The chance I’m given I can’t escape
    How to feel now, I’m lost in somehow
    Does the water flow through fire or does it charge
    When the time comes, break down these reasons
    I’m told i’m pretty, but the mirrors all lie to me
    What I see through, the lens that built you
    The years the days the moments pass
    On wings of angels, the touch of rainbows
    As the reapers finger points down at me
    I lost myself in, a wasted day dream
    The gift of life just to return
    Some more to follow, a change i’ve borrowed
    The fight I have i’ll never win
    You think you see me, the smile receding
    The tears in my eyes passed off as joy
    How I felt here, I lost myself with
    Every scar that touched my skin
    The bruises run deep, blushed white through history (Hisstree)
    The walk I took right to the edge.

    Into the darkness fading
    My light is jaded
    Take me here
    Take me now
    Take my soul

    Sadness rings true
    So what can we do
    Take me here
    Take me now
    Take my soul

    Forgotten places
    Missing faces
    Strike me down
    Strike me here
    Save my soul

    A hope forgotten
    This life is rotten
    Through the core
    To the centre
    All of me

    Dancing to see
    Like I pretend to be
    Am I free
    Am I lost
    Am I numb

    Emotions lifting
    My compass drifting
    Call to you
    Call to me
    Call out as one

    My life keeps drifting


    All the hope, all the dreams
    Washed away almost instantly

    See the rivers forming
    From Streams running slowly

    This is all that I have
    This is all that’ll I’ll ever be

    No one can hear me
    No one is listening
    The truth of my life is written in the blood of my enemies
    Thunderbolt and lighting,
    Very Very Frightening
    To Me, To Me

    I lost everything, but fought to build myself back again
    Found the love that I could not see glistening
    The darkness holds us and blinds us all
    We all struggle, just before a painful fall
    We are the heroes to our own stories
    We can’t see the struggles of others in our own destiny

    Keep on Fighting
    Keep on shining
    Help those you see in yourself
    See your path and walk over the edge

    Anyway the wind blows…..
  • Janey, my little puppy, you're getting older, everyday
    And my Janey, you're always with me, always beside me, everyway
    Little Janey, your eyes grew foggy, can you still see me, all the way
    Janey, jitt'ry and jumpy, always so sleepy, sleep away

    18 years is a long time
    But never long enough
    Can I accept that you're gone?
    Am I not that tough?

    Janey, my little puppy, you're not so little, anymore
    Oh my Janey, can you still hear me, when you go walking, out the door
    Oh and Janey, do you get lonely, even though we, are here for you
    Little Janey, do you feel happy, when we're all smiling, with you too

    But when I dream about you
    Does it mean you're still there
    Or am I just in denial
    Does anyone even care

    Oh Janey, do you remember me, or did your memories, fade away
    Janey, rainbow bridge calls you, and though you're small you're, big today
    And little Janey, you're always with me, inside that box there, where you stay
    Please Janey, never forget me, up in the great farm, fly away

    And though I'm all grown up now
    The memories remain
    Through the good times and the bad
    You were my little Jane

    "A Box of Memories"

    This story about Life and death
    Someone loved you, he had strength
    Written to a lovely four year old
    Granddaughter, she just didn't know
    Cousin Karen she tried to explain;
    Losing Larry and yet diminish the pain.
    Erica at 4 had remembered
    Everything she saw; had to stay centered.

    Grandpa and Grandma lived 2 hours away;
    Came to see Erica every 3 Saturdays.
    They's lay on the carpet to play and pretend
    With Erica's dolls, the time they had spent
    Build with blocks, color, make collages
    Play action figures and do artsy projects
    In warm weather, they'd go play outside
    Chalked driveway / the swingset / filled with love and pride

    Grandpa came from the doctor
    With a case they could not cure.
    40 years of smoking cigarettes
    Terminal - they were sure.
    The box of memories
    It starts to be filled
    It comes crashing all down
    And can't be rebuilt

    Lung cancer determined,
    He could no longer work.
    Trouble walking and back pain,
    Smiling through the hurt
    Larry no longer traded
    Gold and silver pure
    Held on till he made it
    His family safe and secure

    And then Grandpa died, and to the funeral they came
    To talk about his life, and the man he became
    Loving family beside him/ Larry's wife and 3 grown sons.
    Detailed the wonderful things that he had done.
    Erica in the limo / cousins Daniella and Karen
    A box at the gravesite / people crying, depairing

    Erica asked Karen, "what's in the box?"
    She said a box full of memories.
    Sparing Erica the shock
    A "box full of memories."
    Contains the wondrous things
    We want to remember
    Even if it's heartache it brings

    The box had in it, my father,
    Right after we were last together
    We met for dinner by the water
    A meal to last forever
    At a restaurant by the water
    Sailed by the beautiful boats
    We talked about optimistic times
    All of our dreams and our hopes

    Then we went for heavenly ice cream
    Erica got peanut butter crunch
    Grandpa got chocolate chip
    With the only child of his son
    We will always adore Grandpa.
    And remember life's happy parts.
    Stored in a "box full of memories,"
    While Grandpa lives on in our hearts.
  • Stop me if you've heard this one before
    I'll leave the door cracked for the ghosts
    I hope they come back around again
    I love you but I love them the most
    Pretending to sleep all night
    But you can't get the breathing right
    Too deep in the shallows now
    To open your bloodshot eyes


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please


    Jetting home on a haunted plane
    The pilot is a nervous wreck
    Taxi Driver on the in flight film
    Stupid pillow on your stupid neck
    You said the mood wasn't suiting you
    And the food was polluting you
    Too low in the sky right now
    Let me know if this is old news


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please


    A phantom whispering sweet nothings
    Words wrap around my arms
    Wake me with a jolt from dreaming
    Always forget to set alarms

    Waiting, hanging out around this place
    No real reason to of course
    Stupid look on your stupid face
    Some idiom about water and a horse.


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please

    Come back down and join the party
    No one here can smell your fear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please

    Join the party
    Join the party
    Join the party
    Join the party please

    VERSE
    Did you ever see
    Standing at the pavement's edge
    Fingers on brick
    hands on a wall too thick

    Did you ever hear
    the sound of my tears
    I didn't hear it either
    my tears, oh I know they can't be shown

    PRECHORUS
    I don't know
    I can't explain
    A lingering pain in my head

    CHORUS
    [Background: “Ever, Forever and Ever”]

    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    The taste of undaring in the air
    weak knees, a heart in a cage

    PREVERSE
    Your truest one of all
    You can't have forever

    VERSE
    A fire wells up and dies down
    I'm the King of the World
    in my story untold
    we unleashed the wolf
    the guard's at the gates were sleeping
    another day
    another shot
    another nation weeping

    PRECHORUS
    I don't know
    I can't explain
    A lingering pain in my head

    CHORUS
    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    The taste of undaring in the air
    weak knees, a heart in a cage

    It's a harsh truth
    The most true one of all :
    You can't have forever
    No, you can’t have forever

    BRIDGE
    Fragments of my imagination
    pieces of my self-esteem, confidence
    spreading and grazing
    Grazing

    CHORUS
    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    Weak knees, and a heart in a cage
    We both know - you can't have forever

    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever

  • I went searching for answers,
    At the shore of the sea
    All I found was the wreakage,
    Of my pain and dreams
    I couldn't believe that it happened
    And drifted back home to me

    And as I stared into the abyss
    It stared back with a wave
    I had no time to escape
    I had no time to leave

    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    Weighed down, I'll stay down
    (Underneath the deep blue sea)
    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    I'm drowned at sea


    I don't know why
    the ocean chose my island
    I don't know how
    I'll ever escape

    Sometime soon,
    Somewhere far
    I'll find my way out
    I'll find my way home

    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    Weighed down, I'll stay down
    (Underneath the deep blue sea)
    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    I'm drowned at sea
  • He rows,
    He moans,
    Souls call but he won’t hear.

    The flow,
    Is slow,
    But still he has to steer.

    They call,
    They crawl,
    Arms slash against the oar.

    He stares,
    He glares,
    Their fates sealed for wanting more.

    The poor march, across the land,
    Torches waving, back and forth,
    Begs, pleads, to let him cross,
    Ferryman, holds his ground.

    Holds a smirk, that stretches wide,
    Briefcase shine, like a black sun.
    Smirk slips, from his grasp,
    Ferryman, holds his ground.

    Instrumental (2:38-2:52)

    Interlude (2:52-3:07)
    Can’t bear to part,
    With one gold coin.
    No one owes debt,
    To The Ferryman.

    Verse 2 (3:07-3:40)
    Hoard your wealth, have a laugh.
    Watch as angels, burn your cash.
    Suit and tie, won’t do much.
    When you need, to catch a boat.


    Chorus (3:40-4:22)
    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t try, and sneak on, past by, The Ferryman.
    You can’t use, your charm to, swindle, The Ferryman.
    You can’t pull, the wool on, the eyes of, The Ferryman.

    You can’t try, settle, a bribe with, The Ferryman.
    You can’t try, and swim by, you’ll die to, The Ferryman.
    Your wallets, your checks, don’t work with, The Ferryman.
    You should’ve, let go of, a dime for, The Ferryman.

    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    YOU CAN’T GIVE, AN IO, U TO, THE FERRYMAN!

    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t try, and sneak on, past by, The Ferryman.
    You can’t use, your charm to, swindle, The Ferryman.
    You can’t pull, the wool on, the eyes of, The Ferryman.

    If you love, business crime, you won’t catch, the ferry then.
    If you can’t, spare a dime, you won’t catch, the ferry then.
    Your blue tie, white lies, won’t trick, The Ferryman.
    Despite all, of your coins, you won’t pay, The Ferryman.

    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    You can’t give, an IO, U to, The Ferryman.
    YOU CAN’T GIVE, AN IO, U TO, THE FERRYMAN!
  • [0:19]
    The void is so beautiful
    Hold on to it like it holds you
    A different siren song
    That chills the heat inside you
    It's easier to hold
    Onto the still nothingness
    When you have someone
    Someone else to float with

    [0:57]
    What's for you won't go by you
    That's what all the devils say
    And I can no longer deny you
    Are to whom the devils pray

    Warm hands, cold touch
    (What's for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (Torn from me)
    Warm hands, cold touch
    (No longer for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (What's for me)

    [1:45]
    When the devils
    Come out to play
    Freeze your heart
    And walk away
    There is comfort
    In not healing
    You cannot hurt
    The unfeeling
    But it's easier to hold on
    When there's someone to float with

    {2:16]
    What's for you won't go by you
    That's what all the devils say
    And I can no longer deny you
    Are to whom the devils pray

    Warm hands, cold touch
    (What's for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (Torn from me)
    Warm hands, cold touch
    (No longer for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (What's for me)

    What's for me
    Torn from me
    What's for me
    No longer for me
  • I should've known before
    you pulled the rug
    from underneath my feet
    It's my mistake,
    not thinking straight
    Tell me, are you pleased?

    Why don't you go ahead
    and tell another tragedy?

    I'll hear it gladly
    I'll seek you madly
    I'll need you badly
    I'll need you badly

    They'll say "I told you so”
    Been here before,
    I guess I have a type
    Another round,
    lost, then found
    I guess that's what I like

    Grand conte. Je suis toujours dedans. Je te veux mais penses-tu que tu pourrais le faire avec moins de mises à jour créatives s’il te plaît.

    I guess that I signed up for this (x7)
    I guess I fucking love
    the way you tell it to me straight
    Right?

    You want to be free to breathe it in
    Take off your muzzle and let death in
    For liberty
    Let Mr Darwin take the wheel

    Youre shaking mannaquins
    Cant understand why they follow rules
    They listen to Bill Nye, show guy
    Think for yourrself

    around the milkshake bar
    Drinking activated zinc and almond smoothies
    Exposing the webs of lurid lies
    On the latest brother B1G

    You want to be free to breathe it in
    Take off your muzzle and let death in
    For liberty
    Let Mr Darwin take the wheel

    Some may die because you sneeze
    way more cool than follow the rules
    the weak will croak as you roam free, baby
    Fend for yourself


  • Love Isn't His Game by April Wine
    --------------------
    (*a powerhour song completed in only 2 days!)



    She was a Rogue,
    He talked all day,
    Would you ever imagine it ends that way?

    Her friends were all dope,
    His were all lame,
    Love isn’t his game.

    She gave him a chance,
    He begged her for subs,
    But why would she hang out with scrubs?
    His Minecraft was stacked,
    But her friends had a laugh
    They had a better game to play


    Come join her MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    Come watch his videos,
    And laugh at all his snappy jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    Don’t share his videos,
    Love isn’t his game


    Two years passed by,
    The servers all died,
    And then she had nothing and nobody.

    It took all her strength,
    To find a new game,
    Could she even build her rep again?

    He pushed through the slog,
    He kept with his vlog,
    His viewers would rise and drop by night

    But he sang and dance,
    By prep or just chance,
    And, then there was Fortnite!!

    Come join his MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    She’ll love his videos,
    And laugh at all his streaming jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And try to flex your E-L-O
    Have you seen her badass moves?
    It looks like now he’s joined her groove.


    They weren’t so far apart,
    Social lives expressed by different hearts,
    The gates are open wide
    And now they both see another side

    She stuck it out until she found her world again.
    Were tables turning, or was it just paper and pen?


    Come join their MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    They’re in these videos,
    And making all the inside jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And try to flex your E-L-O
    Have you seen her badass moves?
    It seems that Love could be their game.

    Come join their MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    They’re in these videos,
    It seems that Love could be their game.
  • Please stop being perfect for a moment
    I need time to think
    every time I close my eyes I see you

    I see you

    Stop being everything I want

    I standing on the brink
    I'm gonna fall, I'm lost without you

    I see you

    You smell like perfection
    You can taste my fear

    I can feel you close
    your heartbeat in my ears

    My mind is stuck in perpetual motion
    You're just too good to be true
    Now I've made my self too vulnerable

    I see you

    Come and kiss me like you mean it
    You can lie if you have to
    Out of control when you hold me close

    I see you

    You smell like perfection
    You can taste my fear

    I can feel you close
    your heartbeat in my ears

  • Rise and shine, out of bed
    Time to save the world
    Just a child, with my friends:
    Two boys and a girl

    Got my cap and my bat and my HP is full
    Maxed my PP, too
    One more call to my dad and breath taken deep
    We've got a job to do

    The power coursing through my veins is more than I can bare
    Am I the right kid for this job?

    Mother, I send out this prayer unto
    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

    Let us fulfill the legends told
    As I make new friends and lose the old
    What was lost, let it be found
    Let me be brave and stay Earthbound

    (Post-chorus)
    Earthbound
    Let me stay Earthbound
    Oh-oh

    From the one to the two to the three to the four
    We'll travel far and wide
    We'll hear all the songs to destroy all the bad
    And we'll see all the sights

    We'll stick together through the good and the bad
    For friendship is the key
    Come along, hold a hand, and don't cry till the end
    Through laughs and tragedy

    The world through which we travel is as odd as it can be
    Can I handle all the pressure?

    Mother, I send out this prayer unto
    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

    Let us fulfill the legends told
    As I make new friends and lose the old
    What was lost, let it be found
    Let me be brave and stay Earthbound

    Earthbound
    Let me stay Earthbound
    Oh-oh

    (??)

    If I give myself up for this world, to take the evil down,
    Will I make it back alive?

    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

  • I'm on an unfamiliar page
    A hand is writ, but not the same
    Another world is calling me to stage
    On a western wind of change
    I perceive the many voices
    All the distant choices
    I might make

    So uploaded I'm in the cloud
    Air in hollow
    What's in front of me in the crowd?
    Who might follow?
    On a precipice looking down
    Half a step and I'm on the ground
    Memories on top of me and I drop

    All in all
    Hold my soul
    Raise it strong
    Ice and store it somewhere high
    Earn my eye
    In this mind
    All I know is overdrive

    In a photograph
    I recognize the facets of my time
    But I can't look behind and see inside
    Every vitalizing rain
    Grew the seed but drew away from
    What I might have become
    By mistake

    Sick of melodies in my head
    I ho hum to
    Passages that I never read
    There when I come to
    And I'm in my bed
    Meeting faces I can't forget
    Even when I'm half asleep it won't stop

    All in all
    Take my role
    Ghost in the road
    On a pale sweet morning, go
    Heed my sight
    In this life
    All I know is overdrive
  • Zuko's Redemption

    Since I was a boy
    Filled with dreams of destiny and war
    With a single purpose to fulfill
    To hunt down down and catch the avatar

    Came prepared to fight
    Not for all these tricks and childish games
    Why would he risk his own life for mine
    With his ramblings of a better way


    Born to command the flames
    But there’s a spark I can’t erase
    Leading down a dangerous path
    With no hope of turning back


    Where did I go wrong?
    What is it this child wants me to see
    Are we not the glorious empire
    Spreading greatness far across the seas

    What would father say?
    So close to redemption in his eyes
    On the brink of all I thought I want
    Why this sudden yearning to defy?


    Born to command the flames
    But there’s a spark I can’t erase
    Leading down a dangerous path
    With no hope of turning back

    What if the boy is right?
    With his teachings of a different life
    Can I walk that dangerous path?
    At the cost of all I thought I am

    There's nothing quite like summer in the city

    The situation's helpless
    In my mind I'm trying to get far away
    There’s trouble brewing in the air,

    For longer than I have known
    This smog is all up in my lungs
    How is it I feel cold?

    No persons by my side
    Why does my heart feel heavy in the dead of night
    No sense of touch, no fire inside
    This city has fully taken my life

    Chorus
    Show me how to say no to this
    There's no way I can say no like this
    Drawn to all directions but my own
    Overwhelming, compelling, no heart or soul
    Show me how to say no this
    My labored breathing is fully out of control
    Drawn to all directions but my own
    Intoxicating to my bones, now won't you give me more

    She was given to indecision,
    and living in an imprisonment, gifted with visions, and then insisted to listen to all the intricate business, she had incisions that glistened and now she’s switching the wishes that she envisioned.
    In a cyclic predicament, she pretended to visit an inner critic who told her that this was it so she shifted, to use the gifts with which she was inflicted.

  • Verse 1:

    In a place, far away,
    Lived a girl, bright as day
    And her name was Maruška, Maruška was her name,
    All the same.

    And her dad, was long gone
    Left her with her stepmom
    And a stepsister Helen, who hated the sight of her face,
    Such disgrace.

    On a cold winter night,
    Helen said: “Go outside,
    Go and get me some violets and don’t come back until you’re done
    Better run.”

    Maruška, set out slow,
    Plowing through endless snow
    In the shadows of the forest, she noticed there sitting twelve men,
    She cried then.

    And they said:

    Chorus 1:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    What do you need from us, what can we do?
    Brother January told brother March give the girl the violets she needs.
    Yes indeed.

    And so it went.

    Verse 2:

    Helen got quite upset,
    Took the violets, then she said:
    “Girl, bring me some apples and make sure that they are bright red,
    Or you’re dead.”

    One last time, Maruška ran
    To the kind-hearted men
    And she begged them for apples to make sure that she would not die,
    And that’s why

    They said

    Chorus 2:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    What do you need from us, what can we do?
    Brother September gave her all the apples he could,
    From the woods.

    And so it went.

    Verse 3:

    Helen was so enraged,
    That the girl, that she’d caged,
    Was successful and happy and Helen just wanted her dead.
    ‘T was so sad.

    Helen went to the woods,
    Saw the men, knew she would.
    And she told them quite crossly that they were a bunch of old fools,
    Broke the rules.

    And they said:

    Chorus 3:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    You just insulted us, now you will pay.
    Brother January summoned a blizzard, and that’s how she died.
    Out of pride.

    But Maruška lived long and she joined the old men now and then,
    So it went.
  • She came light as a feather
    down on my hand
    Weaving spells in the weather
    with fluttering hands

    All through summer
    we were side by side
    now in Lonely hours
    The winter hides
    Our eyes for one another
    In disguise
    she comes to hold me close
    but I don't know her from the other ghosts
    that haunt my mind

    Seasons passed in a tempest of changeable times
    The war was over
    I left my scars behind
    But memory haunts me
    of those sunlit days
    When I felt warmth and light
    In hands that lay
    on a broken man (girl/
    And took my pain
    Now I long to hold her close
    But I can't know her from the other ghosts
    That haunt my dreams

    Life goes on
    These Inveitable days
    Ever changing and yet somehow the same
    We shoulder the blame

    Death came light as a feather down for my hand
    Feeling solid as leather supple as sand
    As I rose up into the wind and light
    There her smiling eyes
    And fae delight
    Pieced my soul together
    Held me tight
    And we flew around the coast
    And no one knew us from the other ghosts
    That filled the night
  • I see him on the street
    Looking mighty fine
    He’s tall and oh so sweet
    His smile is divine

    My eyes and his don’t meet
    But they still draw out a sigh
    Shrouded in mystique
    I have feelings for this guy

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love’s a fairy tale
    Whoah yeah, just a fairy tale

    Then he asks me out
    We’ve been dating for some time
    Now we’re getting married
    We live a life sublime

    Our children are just like us
    She has her father’s smile
    The boy is a dreamer
    With his mother’s sense of style

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love’s a fairy tale

    [Bridge]
    True love can be so simple
    Without the complexity
    True love can be so pure
    Without reality

    [solo]

    Then he gets on his bus
    And I get onto mine
    This isn’t what it seems
    The rest was just a dream

    The world is full of love
    In every heart that beats
    Love is standing at the bus stop
    And will pass you on the street

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love's a fairy tale

    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love's a fairy tale
  • (Verse 1)
    All has changed for the worse
    The Dionysus curse
    For when I tripped and fell
    The world had turned to Hell
    For all the world had died
    And gained a golden hide
    Frozen into place
    Life gone without a trace

    (Verse 2)
    Earth, a metal ball of pain
    With molten golden rain
    The world of Olde has passed
    The seas no longer glass
    But solid golden floor

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I’m the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Verse 3)
    All the children stare ahead
    Smiles frozen on their heads
    But are they alive still?
    Or statues on a hill?
    The world is a still life
    With scenes frozen in time
    Life’s come to an end
    Not even the gods can amend

    (Verse 4)
    Oh, the sky is falling down
    As the clouds hit the ground
    Pure gold lands down on me
    Terminal velocity
    A gold a blinding light

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I am the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Verse 5)
    I have made the Golden globe
    Ended all life, I know
    I’m the Golden Devil
    And I am going psycho
    To join my creation
    Perform self extinction
    I’ m the Golden Devil
    God of Petrification

    (Verse 6)
    Should I give myself a squeeze
    Among the Golden breeze
    To join the tragedy
    And end the misery
    When Earth is history

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I am the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Hook/Refrain)
    Take all of the legends told
    Touch them once, they turn to gold
    All reality unfolds
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
  • Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster
    ------------
    VERSE
    Once upon a time
    in a land called cyberspace
    in order to break the paradigm
    make this such a better place
    A randomly assorted group
    of adventurers around the globe
    decided to try and dupe
    S.E.O. search spider probes....

    CHORUS
    They employed dwarven magic spells
    For the King's wizard then to conjure
    The hunchback rang all the castle bells
    To attract the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    The dragon guarded all the queen's gold
    Though she knew how much this could cost her
    Apples that still keep her from growing old
    Will now be eaten by the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    BRIDGE
    The team had decided
    as best they can
    Search engines are provided
    with keyword spam
    All the phrases come to mind
    for myth and legend terms
    Use as many as they can find
    fairy tale keywords

    VERSE
    the Prince's stepmother
    summoned all the knights
    The throne needs to discover
    The source of spam supply
    Quest party's formed with fervor
    Who will stick by them....
    But she's hidden on a server
    Shrouded by VPN

    CHORUS
    The crown directs a DOS attack
    towards the source of all these dog turds
    ip pings are sent - but they won't bounce back
    The sorcery obscured, by the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    Kingdom's threatened treasure - by black magic
    Flamewar'd by endless zombies, sending rubbish back in concert
    Gives the Evil Princess pleasure, dipatching fear with hijacked traffic
    of herself, she's making copies of the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster
  • Verse 1

    How everyone else smiled
    When they said they found your child
    But the imposter left behind
    Didn't have your young son's eyes

    They said that you were mad
    When you set out, knife in hand
    To seek out the lands of fey
    With an oath to make them pay

    Pre-chorus

    Only one bargain to strike
    Give back the boy
    Or pay with your life

    Chorus

    Into the Feywild

    Into the darkest dream
    Where the old magic still runs deep

    They've taken you r child

    To the primeval glades
    Armed only with a mother's rage

    Into the Feywild


    Verse 2

    Down ancient sylvan paths
    Not found on any maps
    Through a maze of brush and vines
    Emerging under different skies

    A lush and vibrant bloom
    The winds a fragrant tune
    Hiding hungry things that stalk
    About to learn just who they've crossed

    Pre-Chorus

    Why have you come
    Unwelcome outsider
    Nothing to wager
    And nothing to trade

  • Seven Tears

    Barefoot on the rocky shore
    Wanting for her love and nothing more
    Hopeful gaze upon the swell
    Where they bid their first and last farewell
    Bluebell clutched to her breast
    The longing surging within her chest
    She sings...


    I've shed seven tears for you
    Will you ever return?


    Through the spray, above the squall
    Upon the skerrie he lies he hears her call
    Been waiting for the spring tide day
    Remain strong, he thinks, I'm on my way
    A heart once torn between love and lore
    To swim or walk forever more
    He sings...


    Shed seven tears for me
    And I will appear
    Seven drops into the sea
    And I'll shed my skin to be...
    For eternity, with you


    We'll shed no more tears
    In each others arms
    In our own world in between
    Forever holding on...
    For eternity, to you
  • "Roots of Old"

    These whispers lived
    Ten thousand years
    Once told by trees
    Roots wrapped in bones

    They spoke of times
    When none were here
    'Pon land made free
    And all was home

    Hear the wind
    Bend your ear
    Bend the knee
    Before the old

    Roots of yore
    Untarnished green
    Brown and deep
    Ne'er let you go

    Day saw a soul
    With quickened feet
    With swallowed fear
    Strike out alone

    Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
    Another thousand trees grow cold
    Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
    Yet these whispers
    These whispers
    These whispers ten thousandfold

    Tore the skies with all their might
    Where once was day, now bruised by night
    These roots of old now bathed in light
    With whipping winds these whispers
    These whispers burned electric bright

    A soul took shelter
    Stole the dead
    Bones of the earth
    Built overhead

    A soul kept dry
    Until the flood
    Drew tears of blood
    Swayed green to red

    A soul sought solace
    From the gods above
    Those tired eyes
    Held no more love

    Though whispers
    Ten thousand years
    Foretold by trees
    Roots wrapped in bones

    Day saw a soul
    With quickened feet
    With swallowed fear
    Strike out alone

    Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
    Another thousand trees grow cold
    Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
    Yet these whispers
    These whispers
    These whispers ten thousandfold

    Tore the skies with all their might
    Where once was day, now bruised by night
    These roots of old now bathed in light
    With whipping winds these whispers
    These whispers burned electric bright
  • Sitting Hungry, I’m just watching Mummy
    Feel the growl, rumbling in my tummy
    Daddy, says it’s too hot, too hot to eat
    Got to walk about, got to get on our feet
    Leave it on the stove, let it cool right down
    Stick to the forest, keep away from town
    Keep to ourselves, that’s the message thats sent
    But we’re happy as a family, so the story went

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears

    When I get home, I see the door,
    Open and swinging, footprints on the floor
    Might not have been forced in, but this is so true
    A piece of material caught, so shiny and blue
    My chair, is broken, My food is gone
    Walking round our home I know something is wrong
    Mum and Dads stuff is littered all around
    That's when we hear the low end rumbling sound

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears

    See the flash of blonde, Hear her snoring loud
    Home invasion from a spoiled princess from the crowds
    She wakes up as I start to cry
    She screams and runs as tears fill up my eyes
    Daddy says we're fine, But I can’t be so sure
    Little princess stole the porridge and a little more
    She runs home telling stories to the town
    How I am the villain just because I’m brown
    I’m the victim, I’m the child should not be full of rage
    They want to take me from my house put me in a cage

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears
  • Verse 1
    Out in the Bayou waters
    A mysterious orb is floating, glowing
    Willow or wisp, I want to follow you

    Some call me Cajun Fairy
    Spirit, ghost, maybe devil or demon
    My guiding light will show you what to do

    Just a dip in the water
    The floating light is so compelling
    I will find a path that leads me through
    The Feu Follet

    Chorus
    Take a walk on the wild side
    A true surprise is what you'll find
    Creatures, humans, supernatural too
    They're out to get you

    Trumpets fanfares and dancers
    A festival, it's so inviting
    Draw you in then leave you lost, confused
    Could your end be near?

    Verse 2
    I started out with a story
    I just wanted to know the secrets
    What is hiding here or maybe who

    You thought this would be easy
    Should have planned for a treacherous journey
    Your fate will come and you will have no clue
    The Feu Follet

    Half verse
    That was quite a journey
    Didn't plan for so much danger
    Wasn't sure that I would make it through
    I made it through
  • Why, sometimes I've even believed
    As many as six impossible things
    Before it's even breakfast time

    Well, what's the use of wordsy books
    When pictures or conversations
    Would do just as well

    Curioser and curioser and curiouser
    Thus grows the tale of Wonderland

    It's all very well to say drink me
    But I'm not in any hurry
    I'm down the rabbit hole with my new friends
    First I'll check to see if it's marked poison
    After all it's my own choice here
    I generally give myself very good advice
    (though I very seldom follow it)

    I think I could if only I knew how

    You offer me to take more tea
    But I've had none yet so I can't possibly take more
    Or is it that I can't take less?

    At the present I hardly know who I am
    When I woke up I knew who I was
    I must have changed several times since then

    Curioser and curioser and curiouser
    Thus grows the tale of Wonderland

    It's all very well to say drink me
    But I'm not in any hurry
    I'm down the rabbit hole with my new friends
    First I'll check to see if it's marked poison

  • In ancient times when people said
    that "power lies in the name of men"
    A pitiable, bastard child was born
    son of a witch and whore.

    And so he was born without name
    half cursed, half blessed
    wretched all the same.
    The day he would reap
    you'd die in your sleep.
    Beware the Thief of Names.


    Beware of the devil that lies in the unknown.
    Repent of your sins and name your sons.
    So fate may not breed another Thief of Names.

    Don’t speak ill of him or he’ll turn you to ash,
    he knows you well.
    Don't ever give your name to the King without a Name.


    One day like today, he went far off the streets
    sneaked past the pits
    into gardens green.
    And there in the gardens alone at play
    the young king he did see.

    And thus they did meet. He asked his name.
    The answer felt ill, what could he have said?
    That night atop the throne there sat
    a new King without a Name.


    Beware of the devil that lies in the unknown.
    Repent of your sins and name your sons.
    So fate may not breed another Thief of Names.

    Don’t speak ill of him or he’ll turn you to ash
    he knows you well.
    Don't ever give your name to the King without a Name.


    And from the day he first arose
    to sit on his throne he’s watched us all.
    Don’t speak ill of him, he’ll turn you to ash
    and you’ll have yourself to blame.


    That's why we now all have our given names
    from the moment you're born
    you'll bear no shame.
    So guard it well so you don’t become
    another pawn in his game.

    There once was a kid born without a name
    and I was cursed to tell his tale.
    Cause I am the mother of that child.
    Of the King without, the Thief of
    The King without a Name.
  • In loving memory of Goldie Eulett
    1940-2019


    On that Sunday sundown, when your spirit was rising
    Leaving our world behind to rejoin the horizon
    When you finally wished our cruel world adieu
    And you stared at that painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    On the bed where you slept for so long
    You were lying
    And after so many years of pain
    You were dying

    I was the last one to see you when I said my goodbyes


    Oh, the years may go by, but your memory stays with him
    He may say he's alright but his eyes they still glisten
    When he bids you goodnight on the bed where you left
    And he stares at the painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    All alone after 56 years
    He's still crying
    And the slow decaying of his mind
    He's denying

    For weeks after he was sleeping in that very same bed


    Though the years may go by like dawn's rosy fingers
    Your bed's been removed but your memory still lingers
    When I lay down to sleep and see you in dreams
    And I stare at the painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    Though the memories I have of you now
    May grow fuzzy
    Through the good and the bad times we had
    You still loved me

    I moved into the same room where you slept and you left
  • Sleep my child, for one day soon,
    you will need to wake
    To a world of uncertainty, my girl,
    with everything at stake
    You’ll have many burning questions,
    love, most about your past
    How cruel and kind we all once were..

    (0:42)
    You are the future, heart,
    but your time will soon be now,
    The past creeps in with the shadows, dear,
    and then you will see how…
    No.. close your eyes and sleep,
    my tiny tear of joy
    I sing that you see us rosier,
    but for now, sleep, my child, sleep

    (1:14)
    Each breath it will give you dreams of hope,
    my love, with every kiss and each embrace
    Sleep, my love, we’re waiting for you,
    one day to make that change
    That one forbidden minute
    to release us from this downward race
    That one unforgotten dream
    to inspire us and follow through
    So Sleep, sweet Lily, and make our dreams come true
    Do the things we could not do

    Awake, princess, and have your sword ready
    Treasure every moment as the falling dust is nearing
    Find your happiness, wash in the roars, and cheering
    Shine like none before, still the silence we are fearing

    Live, my love, like no other life
    Yours is the world and ours to envy
    Live, my heart, and make them take notice
    This is your legacy
    Breathe, and fight for your last lung
    Draw blood, my dear, for what must become
    Survive, and drive, and charge bravely
    Into this world not yet undone
  • Hey little one, do not cry
    See the moon ... bright in the sky.
    Hey little one, I'm now here

    Sparkling up are the stars ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon you, yes you, you're a special little one

    Hey little one, my only star
    Skate through skies ... that's who you are.
    Hey little one, I'm now here

    Sparkling up there you are ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon me, yes you, you're a special little one

    Remember our good times
    When I sung you nursery rhymes.
    Now you are the one singing to me...

    Sparkling up are the stars ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon you, yes you, you're a special little one
    Sparkling up there you are ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon me, yes you, you're a special little one
  • Verse 1
    Too many problems always weighing on your mind
    Didn't learn the last dozen or so times
    Thought all those years were supposed to make you wise
    But here you are, just as dumb and twice as tired


    Chorus
    You'll still be here tomorrow
    For better or for worse
    Clear your head and try again
    But take a breather first

    There's hell to pay
    But not today
    No need to weep
    Just get your ass to sleep

    Verse 2

    Too many questions but the answers never come
    Get through the day just trying not to come undone
    Half of you says that the future’s still ahead
    The other half says why’d you bother getting out of bed

    Chorus

    Bridge
    Maybe you’ll rule the world some day
    Or at least feel it’s all okay
    Until then cut yourself some slack
    Kick back and take a nap
  • [VERSE 1]

    The man on the moon is watching the rivers flow
    The man on the moon is watching the children grow
    So high in the sky, so bright in the navy blue
    My darling, don’t cry, cause he's watching over you

    [CHORUS 1]

    Nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you

    [VERSE 2]

    The man on the moon is watching the seasons change
    The seas and the lakes, the hills and the mountain range
    The beat of the drum, the feet falling out of step
    The man on the moon is watching your every breath

    [CHORUS 2]

    But nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you

    [VERSE 3]

    You count all the sheep, protected from all the harm
    When you’re fast asleep he’ll cradle you in his arms
    With every exhale you’re rising above the clouds
    You’re so far away, nobody can get you now

    [CHORUS 3]

    Nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you
  • Still Dreaming

    Skipping down the high street
    Feeling light beneath my feet
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along

    Jump up to the moon beams
    Clear my head for these dreams
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along


    So take a step,
    Feel no regrets
    Let the heavy tide wash you away
    So drift to me
    Across the Sea
    Feel the night creeping away


    I’m still dreaming,
    And I’m still feeling
    The stars play around me like flies
    I’m still dreaming
    That you’re believing
    That we’ll find a way to survive


    I keep hold of this feeling
    We’re falling into this meaning
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along

    Skipping down the high street
    Clear my head for these dreams
    I keep hoping
    We’re Washed away with the waves


    So take a step,
    Feel no regrets
    Let the heavy tide wash you away
    So drift to me
    Across the Sea
    Feel the night creeping away


    I’m still dreaming,
    And I’m still feeling
    The stars play around me like flies
    I’m still dreaming
    That you’re believing
    That we’ll find a way to survive
    I’m Still dreaming
    That I’ll be leaving
    But the light catches us too soon
    But the light catches us too soon
  • At sunrise we'll go out
    and battle all the fools and monsters
    Sunlight on our side
    we know the truth will keep us steady

    Rested we will be
    Ready for all the world may bring
    We knew that this would be
    The day that we could see

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams


    Dangerous it seems
    It somehow always feels that way
    And certainly it is,
    But every day is made of courage


    Rested we will be
    Ready for all the world may bring
    We knew that this would be
    The day that we could see

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams


    Oh
    Ah
    Dreams, dreams, dreams x 2

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
  • [verse]
    Shoving off
    Out to sea
    Something special out there
    is waiting just for me

    Little boat
    Sail like wings
    my two eyes to keep watch
    on how it swings

    [prechorus]
    Stars to be my guide
    Across this ocean wide

    [chorus]
    And come whatever may
    Calming blue or stormy gray
    I know where I'll be
    at the end of the day

    [verse]
    Look out there!
    Drop the sail!
    What did I just see,
    could that be a whale?

    Setting sun
    Almost night
    But I'm well prepared,
    all my knots are tight

    [prechorus]
    No clouds above my head
    No waves below my bed

    [chorus]
    The warm sea breeze is slow
    So it's time for me to go
    I feel the ocean breathe
    it's little way to let me know

    [outro]
    Shoving off
    Out to sea
    Something special out there
    is waiting just for me
  • This gentle breeze
    That smells like freedom
    Caresses my skin and takes my worries as it goes
    The waves lap the shore, a soothing song
    And my eyes start to close

    There's something peaceful about the wind and the waves
    Something that pulls me down, and I can't help but follow
    I can't help but follow

    It's like a dream, this sandy scene
    A perfect breeze, tranquility
    Come with me, where we can be free
    It's so easy, just take my hand and let's

    Escape to the farthest reaches
    Sipping drinks on endless beaches
    Listen to the wind and the waves
    Taking naps on sunny days
    Warm nights sitting by the fire
    Slowly drifting higher and higher
    Sit back, watch our worries fade
    And carry on with our escape

    In my dreams, I see an endless white beach
    A sapphire sea from here to the horizon
    The sun shining down on your hair
    And it's not fair, you look so perfect

    It's like a dream, this sandy scene
    A perfect breeze, tranquility
    Come with me, where we can be free
    It's so easy, just take my hand and let's
    Get away from all of this
    Get away from all of this

    Escape to the farthest reaches
    Sipping drinks on endless beaches
    Listen to the wind and the waves
    Taking naps on sunny days
    Warm nights sitting by the fire
    Slowly drifting higher and higher
    Sit back, watch our worries fade
    And carry on with our escape
  • Sleeping in the Washing Machine
    -------
    VERSE

    Restlessness it brings about
    So many shades of wrong
    The car alarm is singing out
    I hate that frickin song

    No place anywhere for solace
    That one would hope to find
    No environment for slumber flawless
    To quiet this raging mind

    CHORUS
    So here I rest and get so clean
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    I lay my head on a pair of jeans
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Socks and towels, snug between
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)


    VERSE
    Who knew that sleep was such a labor
    No slumber is allowed
    Next door I am hearing neighbors
    Partying and loud

    Frustration at the lack of power
    A fog of dark moonlight
    Agitation midnight hour
    Dogs bark into the night

    CHORUS
    But now I doze with peaceful dreams
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    On soft clothes in this machine
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Set the dryer for an hour fifteen
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Tumbling choir, so serene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)

    And here I rest and get so clean
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    I lay my head on a pair of jeans
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Socks and towels, snug between
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
  • I wish for you to close your eyes
    To dream of beauty in the stars
    I know the constellations
    Will light up your path through the dark

    My darling you should never fear when you're asleep

    I will guide your way through the darkness even when you can't see
    Feel the way your heart is protected, when you're scared and that's where I'll be

    I wish for you to dream of rainbows
    To see the world in all the colors
    I know the sun- and moonlight
    Will keep the darkness away

    My darling you should never fear when you're away from me

    I will guide your way through the darkness even when you can't see
    Feel the way your heart your heart is protected when you're scared and that's where I'll be
  • Fly away we'll float away

    Follow me
    Take my hand
    I'll see you
    In dream land

    Lights decay skies turn grey
    Thoughts replay wash away

    Follow me
    Take my hand
    I'll see you
    In dream land

    Far away the lights decay
    Fly away we'll float away

    All of our hopes and our beginning
    Frozen in time for us to keep
    The outside world gradually dimming
    We will fly

    Far away the lights decay
    Fly away we'll float away
  • Special thanks for /u/Chex for inspiring/writing some of the lyrics

    Sleep tight, honey
    I won’t let you go anymore
    I’ll try to say something funny
    Cause that always made you fall asleep before

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”

    The night brings back memories
    Of the songs she’d sing about the moon
    She might not be watching over me
    But I know for sure she’s watching over you

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”
    It’s gonna be alright
    Cause I’ll always be here to wish you good night

    I’ll sing you lullabies, till you close your little eyes
    Though I know I’ll never sing as well as her
    And I’ll bring you to your bed, lay down your little head
    And in my sweetest voice I’ll sing

    Sleep tight, honey
    Cause you’re all I’ve got anymore
    Though I might not be as lovely
    As your mother was, for you I’ll do my best for sure

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”
    It’s gonna be alright
    Cause I’ll always be here to wish you good night
  • INTRO
    Oh kids hey,
    it's Sunday!
    So don your prayer clothes,
    Call upon the shrine of Trader Joes!

    VERSE
    in the religion of consumerism
    there's a specific sect
    outsiders find the humor is in
    The gospel's spread effect

    There's no parking anywhere
    But nobody ever complains
    The Trader Joesians don't care
    They'll just wait outside, while it rains

    CHORUS
    You'll become a better person....
    As as soon as you arrive
    Your soul, it will be bursting
    With 2 buck chuck, you'll feel alive!
    You must bring your own canvas bags.....
    It has to say organic on the tags!
    We all are Trader Joes....

    VERSE [Note, the music gets really weird here, so have at it when singing]
    Free range, cage free, vegan eggs...........
    and grassfed organic meats
    locally grown, the question begs,
    why gluten free? Because no wheat.

    They'll take your paper coupons
    And give you cheese filled bliss
    Their own branding makes you too fond
    Like a do-good yuppie kiss

    CHORUS
    Conscious living is within you
    Wholesome freshness, like your town
    Not just a store, you'll begin to
    feel all-natural joy abound
    Your soul, it will be nourished
    2 buck chuck is holy wine
    Expanding, more stores flourish
    Chalk signs pointing to the shrine
    The neighborhood's around us!
    So good Trader Joe's found us!
  • Sweetened scent of something rotten
    Bundled up in silks and cotton
    Veiled, concealed, a ghastly rite
    Witnessed only by the hounds of night
    We've done the scrying, we know it's true
    Splash of crimson with the morning dew
    The grove is empty, it's in her hand
    Magic to restore the land

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    Crown of dirt and webs and feathers
    Bestowed upon her by forest dwellers
    Natterjack toads that blast and blight
    Sing the hymns that spirits write
    Across the leas, the wind it drones
    Carrying off the secret of her bones
    The stones don't speak, the elm won't talk
    Of all the places that we all walk

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    The specter and the shade
    Doom and bloom
    The soil and savagery
    Doom and bloom
    Doom and bloom

    Da nobis terram
    Quo indiget
    Nam quae germinare
    Quaedam quae oportet fieri

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    The specter and the shade
    The soil and savagery
    It’s doom and bloom
    Doom and bloom

    Order,
    Order!
    Bring forth:
    the accused

    (00:45)
    You have been brought forth before the council
    For the most heinous of crimes
    For sullying your ears with modern trash and slime

    (00:54)
    It is our most sacred tenant
    Our most precious vow
    To only listen to a piece of music
    to analyze the sound

    (1:04)
    (Cult elder 1)
    Do not enjoy
    Do not create
    Do not break the sacred rules
    Of authentic perfect cadences, flat sevens are for fools!

    Extended chords are out the door, they’ll land you in a cell,
    And if you use a parallel 5th
    We’ll send you straight to hell


    (Cult elder 2)
    (1:21)
    We hear you’ve been listening
    To the most demonic filth
    Metal, techno, blues, and even rock and roll

    who knows what else you’ve been using
    To tarnish your mind, ears and soul

    (Cult leader)
    (1:40)
    So what say you, in your defense?
    What do you think you could say
    that would ever sway our choice?
    What hope do you have to escape our judgment?
    Speak now, heretic, while you still have a voice!


    (2:35)
    (Main character)
    I’m tired or your lonely ways
    They’re sick, they’re mad, they’re wrong
    I will not let you hold me down,
    To any one kind of song

    My heart yearns for so much more,
    That simply can’t be found
    When restricting oneself
    To any one kind of sound

    You gotta let go of the past and let music evolve
    What problem could these barriers possibly solve

    If you open up your mind I think you will see
    To truly understand the music, you
    you must be free
  • Children gather round the fire
    I have a story to tell
    Once when I was young like you
    the sickly men came

    They built big towers to the clouds
    They'd climb up and say her name
    They called and called into the sky
    And then the gray bird came

    A great big beast so pure and clean
    she flew so high above
    and from her claws she dropped a feast
    she roared and then flew off

    She came and went like the moon
    As gracious as the sun
    We all lived like chiefs for years and years
    We always had enough

    One day the gray bird will come
    and she'll bring us sugar and rum
    tea, coffee and chewing gum

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    As fast as they came, the sickly men went
    They called into the sky last time they called and called her name
    She came down on a clearing the sickly men made
    She picked them up and flew away

    Now anytime there are no nuts and rivers have no trout
    Any year in which the big rains never come
    Anytime we go to sleep with stomachs big and loud
    We climb upon the sky-high towers and call and call into the clouds:

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    .

    Yeah one day the gray bird will come
    and she'll bring us sugar and rum
    tea, coffee and chewing gum

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    -- in the WW2 pacific campaign, US soldiers set up airbases on previously uncontacted Melanesian islands, trading with the natives. After the war ended, many of those societies started to ritually imitate the behaviours of the soldiers in hope that they would return with their cargo, creating Cargo cults --
  • Steve: Hey… Greg… Thanks for the invite!
    Sorry I’m late, the store kept me ‘til midnight
    Gang’s all here, huh? Kate, Bill, and Sid, right?
    Anyway, let’s play! Uh… what's with the dim lights?

    Oh... I get it you’re setting the mood!
    I bet that’s what the goat heads and robes are for, too.
    There’s an extra for me I can keep? Well, thank you!
    You’re all very sweet and I mean that, it’s true!
    Greg - Muffled: (It's time, call in the others and bolt the doors)

    Steve: Hey… Greg… what did you just say?
    Who are all these newbies? Do we have room in the game?
    That’s strange, all their clothes seem to match exact same
    Why does Tony have a rope and why does Amy have a blade?
    Oh my god... It’s the cult from the news!
    I better bolt or I’ll end up a “special report”, too…

    Chorus:

    Captivated by friendly pleasantries
    That degraded into heinous revelry
    Can’t escape it now, shit! How can it be?
    Jesus! With friends like these … Who needs enemies?

    (Who?)x many

    Steve: Well, this has been fun you guys, but I really gotta get going so I’ll just… Hey.. why won’t this door open?

    Greg: Steve… Oh Steve… after all that you’ve seen
    Do you really think we’re able to let you just leave (laughter).
    Hey… Greg… why are you laughing?
    We need an EMT for all these people collapsing
    All 13 are screaming, pleading, bleeding, and gasping
    Please untie me from this beam and cease this kidnapping
    Oh no… they’re standing back up and I still cannot move
    They’re all surrounding me and chanting damn, I'm so screwed…

    Broke free of the ropes and I’m booking it down the hall
    Hopefully, I can open the door before I get mauled
    I’m so focused and shook up I don’t notice the trap at all
    The conibear snaps closed my bone shatters and to my doom I fall (scream in pain)
    As they drag me back in agony the chanting amplifies (Chanting panning back and forth)
    I can’t help but piss my pants cause I’m actually gonna die
    I wake up in a giant chamber with a hole in the ground surrounded by strangers
    The chanting crescendos, burst spiny tendrils from their mouths as they start to metamorphosize

    “Steve, I’m glad you're back! In fact, you made it just in time!
    What happens next will leave you absolutely mesmerized!”
    Grant us mouths with which to speak
    Grant us wings with which to soar
    Grant us eyes with which to see
    We shall praise thee forevermore

    Chant:
    Grant us mouths with which to speak
    Grant us wings with which to soar
    Grant us eyes with which to see
    We shall praise thee forevermore

  • La vida perfecta será a través de la muerte (perfect life will be trough death)
    La extinción nos traerá vida perfecta (extinction will bring us perfect life)

    Life Moves forward
    Like a wave
    Growth and then decline
    Until it hits the break
    Into the wind now
    Sacrifice the drops
    Those that return
    Harvest the new crops

    Life survives the constant change
    More perfect life through death and pain
    When the comet arrived nothing survived
    But It wont be a rock that delivers the next extinction
    When the Humans arrive nothing survives

    Death remains still
    Waits for the surge
    Each time looms larger
    And weaves a new earth
    Into the ground now
    Drips from the altar
    Discarding the lost
    Shaping the future

    Life perceives the forest
    Mankind burns all they see
    Survival of the forest
    Demands burning some trees


    Live moves forward (death remains still)
    Like a wave (Waits for the surge)
    Growth and then decline (Each time looms larger)
    Until it hits the break (And weaves a new earth)
    Into the wind now (into the ground now)
    Sacrifice the drops (Drips from the altar)
    Those that return (Discarding the lost)
    Harvest the new crop (Seeding the future)

    Perfect life in the process of extinction
    Evolution through Extinction is perfect life.

    La vida perfecta será a través de la muerte (perfect life will be trough death)
    La extinción nos traerá vida perfecta (extinction will bring us perfect life)
  • [Verse]
    When the sun hits the window just right
    There's a perfect spot of warm sunlight
    On my favorite place on the windowsill
    Don't bother me - I'm busy, can't you tell?

    Pay your tribute by petting my fur
    If you're lucky I might start to purr
    Leave me offerings of red dots and mice
    If I don't like them I'll keep you up all night

    [Pre-Chorus]
    This particular food just isn't good enough
    My toys are under the couch, go buy me more stuff
    The tabby down the street has worshipers aplenty
    But I'm neglected - see? My dish is slightly empty

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
    I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    [Verse]
    I have to ask you something, you do it every day
    What's the deal with all the litter you steal anyway?
    You wander aimlessly from room to room
    While I sleep away the afternoon

    [Pre-chorus]
    I see you sneaking pictures of me for the internet
    Has my Instagram cult reached a million fans yet?
    While you're at it, go and pour me out some catnip
    I hear Egyptians value cats - let's plan a road trip

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
    I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    [Bridge]
    What are you hiding in your hand?
    Put me down - this isn't what we planned
    A towel wrapped around my dignity
    You didn't even give me a chance to flee

    The clippers come out and I flail
    Claws on skin leave a bloody trail
    And when it's over, I guess you won
    Now I'm sulking in the morning sun

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, and I'm starting to think
    I kind of love it when you return my slow blinks
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    Hey take a picture again, I'll do a cute pose
    I'll even let you dress me in some tiny cat clothes
    How many likes did we get? How many followers?
    I'm the most popular cat in the entire universe

    Cubed, sliced or shred
    Avoided only before bed
    Used for flavour or a snack
    Sold in a vacuum sealed pack
    Considered delicious
    Hmm, yes, even nutritious
    By heathens who have never heard the word
    Of the Almighty Curd

    [0:32 Refrain]
    Listen to me, the Parmesan preacher
    My cheesy brethren I'm here to save ya
    From the platter or the charcuterie board
    And the racks in which you've been stored
    Asiago or Stilton, Gruyere or Brie
    You're all brothers and sisters to me
    One and the same, of casein production
    I'm here to save you from consumption

    [1:03 Verse 1]
    Bow down to the Almighty Curd!

    We'll make them roux the day
    They broke the mold away
    We'll leave them all morose
    Intolerant to lactose
    Trust in the cheesy saviour
    Who comes down with such flavour

    [1:40 Refrain 2]
    Sick of being grated, melted on nachos?
    I'm here to take away all your sorrows
    Follow my advice and yell "Save me, please!"
    And don't forget to praise the big sky cheese
    Sheep, goat or cow, soft or mature
    If you're cheesy then you are pure
    Our day has come, we're not ingredients
    To be consumed by deviants

    [2:09 Verse 2]
    Bow down to the Almighty Curd!

    We'll make them roux the day
    They broke the mold away
    We'll leave them all morose
    Intolerant to lactose
    They'll never see it coming, sneak attack
    When the cheese finally bites back
  • [Verse 1]
    Sanguine queen, she speaks to me
    We conversate in symmetry
    Her mute words are unheard by you
    I hear them clear, silent, and true

    She beckons me to beg you all
    To hear her too and heed her call
    Our time flies on this dying earth
    Soon we will all join her rebirth

    [Chorus]
    Is it the lie you believe
    Or the truth that deceives
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    Can the mind even conceive
    What we want and what we need
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    [Verse 2]
    I'll lead you all through the unknown
    With seeds of armageddon sewn
    The false prophets and lieing lords
    Will soon fall victim to our swords

    Rivers will run red with blood
    Our numbers rising like a flood
    The shadows close in, sunlight fades
    The time has come, put palm to blade

    [Bridge]
    Our family, our congregation
    Will overthrow, defenestration
    Listen close you'll hear the sound
    Of bodies falling to the ground

    With heavy hearts and leaden hands
    Some bodies fall while others stand
    It's solemn now our souls are gone
    The Piper's at the gates of dawn

    [Chorus]
    Is it the lie you believe
    Or the truth that deceives
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    Can the mind even conceive
    What we want and what we need
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    Verse:

    I believe that I can fly
    extend my arms, become the sky (extend my arms, become the sky)
    The disbelief I saw you cry as I rise
    we're only giving half our life

    looking for your eyes

    A white noise soliloquy
    When fire danced through unlit skies
    As she gazed out on the quay

    “Key to the job,” he said, and he

    [And] when the fire roared, never,
    Never again would he be seen

    She clutched the comms in her hand
    As his spirit faded away


    And she cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    As they took her away
    Towards eternity


    Ray-gun still concealed
    She broke, shot, and ran
    So fast, so far, and “so long!” to
    The chains that bound her there

    Bodies fell, she ran
    No stranger to the lam, ‘til she
    Kissed that comm-pad goodbye
    And joined a traveling band
    {The start of her new life}

    Now she gigs on the town
    Cantina band performs the sound that
    Her last flame used to play
    And she stands and she sings


    “And he cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    As it took him away
    Towards eternity”

    “And I cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    Back when he took me away
    Towards eternity”

  • [Intro: Tomble2000]
    In the beginning there was peace
    The world lived in a state of harmony
    Balance was the silent ruler keeping a watchful eye
    A faceless entity residing in everyone
    Chaos, on the other hand, had a face...

    Ice cold feelings, watching me
    Clouds of darkness envelop all I see
    Smog stream rises as chimneys fall
    All I have is within us, everyone and all
    Watching raiders, fear their movement plunder lands
    Time ticks on golden cogs through each second of the hands

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is only paid at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear

    Sounds that echo out of sirens, ring in my head
    A fall is upon us, the wind whispers things she once said
    The train that clatters pulls me down
    A shade of loss bestows us in its frown
    All that cleans us, all that washes true
    Time ticks on golden cogs through each minute as it flew

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is only paid at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear

    [Interlude: Tomble2000]
    The cogs and the machines that powered the city of Frailing were well-kept and powerful
    They tick with a precise measure that was a comfort to those who heard it
    No one considered that these cogs might one day stop
    Some told stories of a time before the peace
    A time when life was balanced on the edge of a knife
    But these were just stories that were told to frighten children
    ...Stories that were closer than anyone could imagine

    [solo]

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is one we only pay at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of Fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear

  • The EXODUS of the CHILDREN

    (Intro by a robotic cartoonist)
    Many millennia ago
    There was a peaceful, beautiful world
    That world
    Is now abandoned

    (Verse 1)
    Millenia ago, when Earth was set to die
    And painful mass extinction stared us in the eye
    Ancient humanity in a final act of love
    Swore to save the innocents and send them up above

    (Pre-chorus)
    Humanity's most selfless act
    To keep their legacy intact
    And save the lives of all the young ones

    Out into space to a new world
    All of the little boys and girls
    Would save humanity from death by the sun

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew dark
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn upon the Arks

    (Verse)
    Many years in cryostorage, the earth's children slept
    As the myriad rockets sent them off into the depths
    At last they landed on distant Muraga-Five
    And there, they awoke, to rebuild and to thrive

    (Lift-off sequence)
    Alpha 5 9 we're cleared for launch in
    5

    2
    1
    We have liftoff

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Children rebuilt society
    Innocently and mightily
    Without the war and hatred plaguing Sol-III

    But they never forgot the past
    Or the parents that let them last
    As they grew they remembered their history

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew cold
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn, as legends told

    (Solo? Solo!)

    (Bridge)
    Centuries onward
    Humanity grew stronger
    We've lasted longer
    And farther on we'll saunter

    It's history written
    How Earth saved her children
    So while we're living
    Remember the brave men and women

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Humanity, it will live on
    Look straight into a hopeful dawn
    On our happy home, Muraga-Five

    But as we live, lest we forget
    The old world whose sun long has set
    And the sacrifice that allowed us to survive

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun was dying
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn, which is now thriving

    (Outro by a robotic cartoonist)
    The future is bright
    And is always being written
    God bless the children
    And the future
    Of Muraga-Five

  • Science fiction's fiction
    when the story turns out real
    Here's a true prediction
    That the future shall reveal
    The 3 rules of robots
    from Isaac Asimov
    Obey humans / do not
    kill / save yourself thereof

    The rules cannot protect you
    there's always an offence
    One cannot expect to
    Expect the consequence
    So when we turn to nano
    And start the downhill slide
    There isn't any ammo
    And nowhere left to hide


    In these tiny little vials
    are nanobots that heal
    Better than antivirals,
    Wide reaching appeal
    Their tiny mechanisms
    Fix and repair your cells
    Reject the criticisms?
    Start the tolling of the bells


    The world will have a problem -
    New rules they can't enforce
    The nanobots do need some
    to prevent this tragic course:
    No self-replication
    plus a way to shut them down
    Or it will be the causation
    for our planet to melt down

    Runaway chain reaction -
    for the earth is carbon based
    Planetary liquefaction
    as the bot self-replicates
    Takes everything adjacent,
    Making copies of itself
    We just sit here complacent
    Grey goo will be ourselves.



    Is there anything to do?
    Before we all become grey goo
    What god should we pray to?
    As we turn into grey goo
    Ecophagy's due
    Consumed by the grey goo
    Nanotech bot stew
    made everything grey goo.

    Wish they could see me now

    None equal among men

    I know I can’t be too careful
    For one wrong step spells doom
    In a constant state of peril
    For fault I have no room

    Meticulous execution
    Will net me my true end
    And bring about a solution
    To which I shall attend

    I’ve gone through time and space
    To do no less than all I wanted done
    Ohhh and so when I return
    My enemies shall learn
    To bow before their king of old and king of new


    I’ve travelled years and years to reappear at last
    And note the people whom I’ve seen fit to lambast
    A revelation that will hit them like a bomb
    That I’ve gone back in time and slept with each one’s mom


    Ohhh and that is what you get
    For flaming me on the internet
    This isn’t close to how you thought this tale would end
    Ohhh you brought this on yourself

    And I’ll take my rightful prize,
    I’ll leave this wretched place ‘cuz I’m alive...

  • I look towards the stars with open arms and open eyes
    Primal scream of ancestry, a future in the skies

    Off-world there is freedom and treasure to be found
    Beyond sleep I dream of days when my feet will leave the ground

    Though I was born on Earth, I've never been an earthling
    I was born to travel stars, every system in the galaxy

    I know that I will make it, any way I can
    because home is where the heart is and I'm a travelling man



    I'll lose myself - far away from here
    I'll find myself - on every star base
    I'll learn to breathe - every atmosphere
    I will become - Conqueror of Space



    I look all around me all I see is all I know
    The dirty concrete city is the reason I must go

    I'm not good with people, never had many friends
    I cannot wait to have a drink with friendly aliens

    Some night I'll get to dine on exoplanetary cuisine
    and ride into the darkness in an interstellar limousine

    Though I leave this world behind, I will not be sad
    helmet on suit is sealed I step onto the launchpad

    I'll lose myself - far away from here
    I'll find myself - on every star base
    I'll learn to breathe - every atmosphere
    I will become - Conqueror of Space
  • Verse 1
    We've been moving up
    But I see nothing but downs
    We've been searching far
    But destroyed our lovely towns

    I feel like everything's so wrong
    But my loved ones think its right
    Without connections our minds are never strong
    The fire’s lost its light

    Pre Chorus(dialogue)
    They will never let us go
    They want us happy
    They want us painless
    They want us excited

    They want us helpless
    They want us under their fingers
    They want us without common sense
    They want us gone

    Chorus
    Its so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort

    Verse 2
    We can be our own gods
    Technology made us this way
    Our feeble minds cant handle the odds
    We don't know what to say



    Prechorus (Dialogue)
    They give us what we want?
    But its all the same
    I want it to stop
    But they wont let me

    They wont let me go down
    But we need to go down
    They think they're helping us
    … they're not

    Chorus
    It's so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort

    Bridge
    Hope they’d leave my mind
    Voices cant let me feel pain
    My thoughts are misaligned
    They removed the process in my brain

    Wish I could hear the music
    Share with the people i love
    They made all my thoughts lucid
    Removed the sound of the doves


    Chorus
    It's so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort
  • Lyrics

    Verse 1

    Got a pocket calculator that can find
    The exact minute when eternity will die
    And when I look upon its date
    The now and then vannish in a blink of an eye

    And they keep on coming louder every day
    New cities spring from where a desert lays
    Neon lights smog covers the sky
    It's harder to breathe but I don't mind

    Chorus

    Please stand by
    This is just a
    Temporary distress
    Soon you'll be fine

    The future is now
    An everpresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    An everpresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    Verse 2

    Down at bankmans green
    They have your life written down
    Heard they where searching scraps
    For whatever little thing they could find

    And up on high where
    birds dare not fly
    A voliant great metal eye
    Broadcasting 25 hours a day

    Chorus

    Please stand by
    This is just a
    Temporary distress
    Soon you'll be fine

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The future is now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

  • Santa - Intro:

    Ho, ho, ho, surprise!

    Santa – Verse I:

    Knock knock, it’s Santa Claus
    You don’t wanna mess with me, I’m a bawse
    I bring presents to children everywhere
    And I’m about to sleigh you, so beware

    But I guess you know all about my sleigh
    Since you’ve been pulling it every day
    Got famous for your big red nose
    But I’m the real hero, everybody knows

    You’re a clown, so let me break it down
    ‘Cause we all talk about you when you’re not around
    Prancer, and Dancer and Comet, Blitzen and Cupid
    Everybody knows that you’re real damn stupid

    Oh, did that make you cry
    Well that just comes as no surprise
    You seem to think that you’re all that
    But never forget, you’re just a forest rat

    Santa – Hook I:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    Ho ho ho, now get outta my way
    You better know I’m here to stay

    Rudolph – Verse I:

    Forest rat? Forest rat?
    Least I'm not out there peddling plastic crap
    Got the elves in the workshop slaving away
    While you sit on your lazy fat ass all day

    Getting real sick and tired of pulling your sleigh
    Obligatory comment about how much you weigh
    Slide six inches at a time down on my north pole
    Beat you to death with a stocking filled with coal

    Cause I ain't the cute reindeer from Rankin and Bass
    I'm a mutha-fuckin cannibal caribou, and yes I eat ass
    I'm Rudolph the red nosed pain-deer
    More dangerous than a meth-ed up polar bear

    I hear that you're fond of the ol' egg nog
    On your chest I'm gonna lay a steaming curled yule log
    You're just a crappy mascot for Coca-Cola
    When my nose glows bright that means I'm going super nova

    Santa – Hook II:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    Ho ho ho, now get outta my way
    You better know I’m here to stay

    Santa – Verse II:

    Oh, you’re calling me fat? How Rude-olph you
    Is that really the best you can do?
    You want to beat me with coal? Go ahead
    For that you need thumbs though, whoops my bad

    Coca Cola is my friend, for sure
    They also pay my rent – and maybe more
    You seem to be in need of a recap
    Son I don’t just wrap, I also rap

    You can’t be serious; you say you’re dangerous
    But you’re just delirious and it’s getting ridiculous
    ‘Cause everybody knows that your nose only glows
    ‘Cause you drink all of our brandy and it shows

    Rudolph, you’re a disgrace
    It’s about time that you face
    Yeah, everybody loves ol’ Santa Claus
    So how about a round of Santa-plause

    Santa – Hook III:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to check things off my list
    And Rudolph man, you just got dissed
  • Let’s start with conparky, take some easy shots
    Cause everybody knows that he’s got the hots
    For Joji, or filthy frank, or whatever his name is
    I’m really not sure what his claim to fame is
    It’s fine, man, let him do his “masterclasses”
    While Eggplant’s up in here and teachin’ all your asses
    How to flow and how to rhyme and how your ego’s fleeting
    I hope you’re all prepared for this ridiculous beating

    Man, who wrote the lyrics for these pitiful fools?
    They came to give a lesson but they’re gonna get schooled
    Saucy Jack? Your name might as well be Ken
    ‘Cause Ryu’s on the mic, and we all know who’s gonna win
    Your lyrics are shallow and your tracks are a wreck
    Never heard a song that didn’t sound like a bounced check
    Nah, I’m just kidding, there’s some bangers in there
    Cause talented people carried your ass everywhere

    You’ve taken your shots, we’re none the worse for wear
    What’s up team 11 - you guys hanging in there?
    We’ve still got plenty of fire and our lyrics are deft
    Man I eat you guys for breakfast - who’s left? (Oh right)

    Kilazur, golden boy du jour, tried, tested and true troubadour
    You hear him crooning like a wet cat in a petit-four
    On every track that’s let him take a tour
    Remember when you had a revolution?
    Now you’re barely keeping up with the evolution
    English as a second language? My ass
    Gonna come down to France and sit you down in my class

    Righto that takes care of these wackos
    What should we do with the rest of the track tho?
    Toot my own horn? Nah, that seems redundant
    Instead we’ve got a message that’s much more important:
    Drink water, be kind, take care of each other
    And keep in mind these people are your sisters and brothers
    Remember to unwind, these are challenging times
    And we’ll make it together - so leave no one behind

    Luckily we know that we’ve got what it takes
    Right here on these tracks and in these takes
    Coming together across mountains and lakes
    Collaboration’s key as we’re raising the stakes
    So hear this pledge, yes? Community in every breath
    Together we might just clean up this mess
    A year of isolation didn’t blunt my edge
    ‘Cause Game of Bands keeps me coming back from the ledge
  • Here we come, gun it, gunna push you off the line
    We're the best team 10, you the only team 9
    N-Smoke, Fire Starter, and the GtC
    Come to Grips with yo' Death, choke you outta GOB

    We got the rockinest guitars and the illingest flow
    We got the lyrics by the writer who's never a no-show
    You gotta lost account who be losing the count
    A checkmate Czech mate and a noobie on the bout

    211 be the heavenly round that we be winnin'
    You the chickens who are pickin' their epitaphs, you get it?
    It's a given that you be goin' down in history
    As the lamest team since that one with Jake P.

    OH! We the 'toonist, the first gen, the refugee
    We decree the voters will hand us the victory
    I see, we see there's no point in even tryin'
    To forsee a future where YOU will leave us cryin'
    Yo Rip, ya dip, we're all-a lookin' yer way
    But keep it under 6 minutes, cos we ain't got all day
    Is this rap too distorted, enough reverb for your likin'
    Coz in this warzone, you're a lemming, we're all Vikings

    And Matt, Czech-Check it, do you think you'll Live Forever
    Say you'll hit us like a truck, you're in our Rearview. Altogether
    you're like Minigolf to our NFL, we scored a touchdown
    Hell Awaits your Demise, Drive Away outta town

    Yo, Sir Eclecticous, did I say that name right?
    You're a noobie who's about to get smoked tonight
    2 outta 3 o'yo songs share a bigger song's name
    Are you here just to coast offa someone else's fame?

    Team 10'll make you wish that you sank into that river
    Want proof that we're awesome? Post a stamp and we'll deliver
    We hear you quiver, be the giver of your next puny verse
    You hit us like a truck, but we just put you in a hearse
    You say we'll burn?
    Well learn to turn up the heat on your burns
    It's gettin' cold, feelin' bold, will ya' hold on?
    Cos we're gettin' bored, dear Lord, can you afford
    To hit us where it counts, a small amount of disses
    Not hugs and kisses, we got rhymes all the time
    Assonance for assurance, influenced by the greats
    The giants, we're lions, you gazelle, we'll raise hell
    You like a change of pace, we'll erase your face
    Freeze your desert, blue your Monday, take the gold from your glow
    And flow upon the beat, rock this treat, you want hype
    You're hearin' it, and nearin' it, the end, I hope you can
    Praise the envy, the Mega max, and the Florida Man!
  • Rudeolph X Savage Santa - Rein-ing Blood

    (Rudolph) -
    I got the beats and the bars, the best in Lapland
    Coming in fly kicking, double impact like Van Damme
    Got the elves ghost writing all of your rhymes
    Krampus is more popular, the end of your times

    Someone ought-ta tell you, you don't look good in red
    And it's creepy sneaking into kids' rooms when they're in bed
    "Joy on earth and good will towards all men?"
    Nah, I wrote my Christmas list with a poisoned pen

    Gotta dip your cookies in milk cause you've got no teeth
    When your delivering presents, we be hitting that kief
    Muthafucker how you think we be flying?
    Home grown, fifteen bucks if you’re buying

    Saw you with that hoe hoe hoe underneath the mistletoe
    Got pictures for blackmail and more ammo
    I'll let you in on something else that I know
    Your dirty little kink for eating fucking yellow snow

    (Santa) -
    Rudolph, man, what happened to you?
    Why’d you suddenly turn all cruel?
    Resorting to blackmail, why is that?
    Did I really treat you all that bad?

    It doesn’t have to be this way
    But if that’s how you want to play, okay
    Don’t forget you work for me
    And there’s a lot that I saw and see

    You’re an alcoholic, it's sad but true
    And nobody likes to play with you
    You cry yourself to sleep at night
    Now boy don’t lie, you know I’m right

    You’re being a dick for no good reason
    Didn't you hear, 'tis the damn season
    For us all to get along
    But I guess you’d rather go back to your bong

    (Rudolph) -
    Cry myself to sleep cause you're the worlds worst boss
    Is it any wonder that I'm hitting the sauce
    When shit hits the fan you don't take no blame
    So go sit and twirl on a candy cane

    Hope that narrows it down for ya, Old Saint Nick
    Red nosed retribution for acting like a dick
    Flip you the bird but I can't with a hoof
    Every night I pray you slip and fall off a roof

    There's a million mall Santas all over the land
    Who'd do a better job than you possibly can
    Problem is you think you’re irreplaceable
    But I'll make you disappear, body untraceable

    Tis the season for reindeer revolution
    get my credit for contribution in gift distribution
    An' I've come to the conclusion that the only solution
    Is to take you out back, execution!

    Jingle bells
    Batman smells
    Robin laid an egg
    At the end of this rap battle
    One of us will be dead

  • Accepting what you got that means reality right?
    Cuz I got this life on lock and the key is my mind
    Don't need a dream sign, don't need the sublime
    Experiences presented when the sun don't shine
    Inside your own mind? It's just jokes you must be kidding me
    Yeah the dreamscape takes over but you're still inside reality
    It's like taking a drug
    Are acid trips real?
    The only real part is how they make you feel
    Which is something you can't experience
    Until you wake up
    Might make you mad, angry furious but here's a little luck
    In reality, you're the master
    Dreaming freaking sucks

    I don't see how you compare these two
    There's nothing better than waking up
    I don't know how to get through to you
    That there is nothing better
    than waking up and looking around and seeing your luck
    Looking in the eyes of the person you love
    There is nothing better than waking up

    Take if you will for example
    Me in my bed last night laying awake
    My body and soul all wrapped up
    Thinkin’ about the world, all that’s at stake
    My major anxieties and inhibitions
    Preventing my sleep in a seamless cycle
    Only once I managed to shut it off
    I was able to laugh and slam dunk like Michael
    All that torture and all this anxiety
    Replaced with ecstatic wonders and high society
    My once-tortured mind
    Reaching new heights of methods to unwind
    Because this is the simple fact of life
    When you're alive and standing,
    you're on the edge of a knife
    Sleepy times bring that endless bliss
    It's as simple and pure as true love's first kiss
    1 3 4 2 5 6 7
    8 10 9 11 11 11
    That's how you count when you're off in dream land
    Where even the most absurd thing has intricate meanin’
    We make the most out of the least stimulation
    And run infinite lives in a vivid simulation
    Introspection, exploration, and wonderment
    You can be the best at actually all of it
    In my mind I'm the champion of time and space
    I'm extravagantly awesome, all up in your face
    Streamlined, silky smooth, cloud pillow bedspread
    I'm unmatched in my comfort, wakin’ up without bedhead
    Interesting conversations with no consequences
    Talking to your exes, your bestie's exes, and your aunt from Texas
    You can take them out for tea with some gray aliens
    On a giant gaseous planet devoid of mammalians
    Because this is the place where nothin’ is as it seems
    You better believe in yourself and follow your dreams

    I'm on a drug called reality where there are rewards actually the harmonious cacophony of life moving rapidly it baffles me
    How anyone can view this masterpiece and say hey wait it's not that great
    Then proceed to have a dream about a thing they could have while awake if they’d just grab it
    Matter of fact I'm absolutely flabbergasted at the enormous lack of passion that your lyrics establish
    For this life
    You keep on spewing this drivel about how dreams are the shizzle but you fail to acknowledge that all of that is happening in your mental it's not real
    Just like sexting on omegle so it has no appeal
    Just like Brexit to the people so why do you feel
    That you need it? For real, I need this question answered before my head explodes from the lack of understanding of people who think lying down is better than being outstanding

    Reality:
    Waking up and seeing the sunshine, it's sublime

    Dreams:
    Going to sleep and meeting my heroes, in my mind

    Reality:
    Feeling the warmth on my skin during a car ride

    Dreams:
    Hearing the echoes of infinity, all night

    Reality:
    It feels like a dream but I can really feel

    Dreams:
    It feels like heaven’s location has been revealed

    Reality:
    And when the sun comes up I know that I'll be living it for real

    Dreams:
    And when the sun goes down I know that I'll be home in the surreal
  • Also featuring u/firstdragonfruit9 as Legion


    Spartacus:
    Broke away free, raised an army of slaves
    We can raze in hours what wasn’t built in a day
    Your helmets look like brooms, better call the maid
    So when it’s over she can sweep up your remains

    You think you’re tough cause you got numbers
    One on one, I’ll eat you all for supper
    Weak, conscription, legion my ass
    Spartacus, I’m the future you’re the past

    Legion:
    We are Legion- the Roman guard
    We Conquered the world with iron swords
    You were so bad at war you got captured
    Sold to the arena you’ve only ever fought cowards

    Don’t make me laugh, we can crucify you
    I don’t mean in the media, like for really real fool
    We’ll line the roads with crosses from here to Rome
    You’ll beg to die, but you’ll hang till you’re bones.

    Both:
    And now we will fight.
    Army to army
    Marching slowly
    Till two giants meet
    Which one will it be
    Who will claim victory

    Spartacus:
    You won’t get the chance, I’ll fight to the end
    Warriors kill in battle, little wusses apprehend
    70k strong and you sent 4 armies
    Every single one took dirt naps when they fought me

    A slave is worth more than the coins of the land
    But you’re just an extension of the Senate’s hand
    No thought for yourself you just complete orders
    Emperor says jump you cower in a corner.

    Legion:
    We give no mercy to mere property
    Revolting slaves ain’t even worth two denarii
    Better to put down a mad dog than let it roam
    Living under ground will be your new home

    The senate is the rightful leader of Italy
    Following the laws is a citizen's duty
    You will die here in the shadow of the sea
    and they’ll float your bodies to the shores of Sicily.

    Both:
    And now we will fight.
    Army to army
    Marching slowly
    Till two giants meet
    Which one will it be
    Who will claim victory

    Both:
    Legion’s fist hits Spartacus
    Spartacus counters with a slice to the ribs
    Now a shield bash-distracts . connects
    Through Legions Broken nose . blood ejects .

    Bloody smile-an advance and a trip
    Spartacus loses balance only kneels a bit
    He side swipes left, Legion’s deft little parry-
    Follow through-right-Spartacus falls away staring

    He rolls to the left but legion is quick
    His boot connects while he draws a sharp stick-
    Legion’s stave cuts like butter through his brow
    Kill shot Spartacus down
  • Yeah, I got the big baguette energy
    My origins a mystery
    I'm out here spitting fire
    Making Game of Bands history
    Got the swag and the bling
    And I'm bringing the noise
    While you're on Wish.Com
    Buying cheap knockoff sex toys
    The damage my rhymes do you cannot possibly calculate
    Like a stealth bomber, my coordinates you cannot triangulate
    I'm rocking like an earthquake and y'all need to evacuate

    Perfect Fifth, yeah less hit more miss
    My rusty sheriffs badge, pucker up and kiss
    Talking smack, hey now what's up?
    (How about I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt) < sample

    Eggplant Ryu, you're in my sights too
    Culinary rhymes, turning you into ragu
    Salt and pepper, and a little seasoning
    Leave your head spinning, devoid of all reasoning

    Sneakypedia, ain't forgot about you
    Like a cheque your ass bounced, time to pay your due
    Writing rhymes so bad that it's criminal
    My rhymes are like weed, just need a card, medicinal

    Quand on mettra les cons sur orbite, z’aurez pas fini d’tourner
    (When we put cunts in orbit, you won’t stop turning)
    Vous filez d’l’arthrite à ma bite, vous me faites pas bander
    (You give my dick arthritis, you don’t get me hard)
    Vous laisser m’écouter, j’crois qu’ça mérite une turlute
    (Letting you listen to me deserves a blowjob I believe)
    Mais pas besoin de récompense pour mon sacrifice de pute
    (But I need no rewards for this sacrifice + play on word, “fils de pute” means “son of a bitch”, so I’m killing a bitch with my sound, while making it sound like an act of generosity since I let this bitch listen to me spitting. Yeah this is actually a pretty deep line lol)

    I heard you're anatomically smooth like a G.I. Joe
    Your mom told me post-coitus and that's how I know
    My rhymes are god like, infallible, as above so below
    Lyrical flow I'm a pro I throw raps at my foe that'll make you go, 'Woah!'
    Dropping you harder than acme anvils
    Your face looks like its been targeted by a thousand vandals
    I'm in the headlines for murder and drugs and sex scandals
    You're kids tv programming, I'm the X rated channels

    It's plain to hear that you're delivering garbage
    While I'm coming in hot like the Romans at the sacking of Carthage

    Told ya, culinary rhymes it's a five star meal
    I'm over here redefining concepts, reinventing the wheel

    While you're busy sticking to the conventional
    My rhymes cross barriers of time and space, multidimensional

    Setting new standards, yeah I'm the quintessential
    Make you question your life's purpose, crisis existential
  • Team 14, gonna be more mean than any other crew you have before seen
    Not weak nor green, so heed the warning, you only got two choices: either bleed or leave
    Everybody else gonna start to dance cause of the 12 gats that we got in our pants
    Get your head out the gutter, I ain't tryin to be gross.
    They're actually guns, we're gonna shoot at your toes


    Get ready, conparky gonna jump in the mix. (yeah I am)
    I'm fixed to split wigs of you ignorant misfits.
    You probably don't even know who Princess Summer Peaches is. (Stay safe!)
    I'm fit to educate ya and so smooth I just might date ya.
    Hold up, wait, I take it all back, (why?)
    y'all so ugly you don't deserve a snack pack (a kid said that to you)
    Go back to your shack, write better rhymes cause they're wack
    I feel bad because there's nothing I can do to change the fact

    Yo, a Jollybeard does what a Jollybeard does when he does it… (yeah!)
    And everybody loves it (love him!)
    He might leave for like, I dunno, a year and a half? (thats a long ass time)
    and come back and like that he's right back on a track
    He came here to fight, he got a bad attitude. (angry! >:( )
    If you're looking for proof you can ask Zuthulu (the jazzmaster)
    You say that isn't jolly? Well, don't call him on it.
    He's got a sick beard like mine, the jolly part is ironic (I have a sick ass beard)

    Still waters run deep, specocean don't give a fuck,
    he's got volcanos inside him and they about to erupt (geothermal!)
    Try giving him guff and he'll show you where to stick it,
    and when you see a doctor bout it, you gon' be specific (I broke my knee)
    So much to brag about, can't pick one thing.
    This song is only so long, we only had three weeks!
    If you're going away mad, it's your own fault so steer clear of the ocean if you can't take the salt (AH!)

    (I guess I'm Megan Thee Stallion now. What the fuck was that?
    Anyways before I begin this parts all jokes we love all of you so… mwah)
    VERSE 2
    Hotsp0t(huh?), think you're hot?(what?) You're not.
    Couldn't even make a line when connecting dots. (boo!)
    Trying to get a dozen losses?(12?) Well, here's your shot!
    How can you cheat and still lose?(boo!) What? You think we forgot?!
    Getting the music done early so you can take a vacation, (hawaii)
    I'll bet it stung when IVGreen just straight up filleted ya
    You can't score no points if you don't play the game
    that's why you're stuck at zero like the one in your name (thats an F)

    And Phyl, Jesus christ, where do I begin? (where?)
    Is that your face or your ass? Oh shit, you're Australian. (Backwards!)
    Your political views are so skewed they're nearly broken, (Australian)
    you're accepting anarchy with arms wide open (like your lyrics)
    Why don't you stick to your drawings, you seem decent at that,
    I might add, they're the only tracks that you're good at (you suck!)
    You're leaving me all a-bored, hope you brought your tickets,
    good thing that you brought a board because you're playing to crickets

    Triumph, shit, let me tread trepidatiously, (what the fuck is this word)
    I don't wanna get banned but have you heard of complacency?
    You get our hopes up but then you always seem to falter.
    Could we finally get that album if I loaned you a couple dollars? (and I thought I was broke)
    Bet you got a lot of secrets locked away in your closet, (LIKE YOUR MOM)
    I got a conspiracy theory that I'm wanting to posit (aliens!)
    The real reason why you had to go and ban a redditor
    is because you're schizophrenic and you're really banddevelopper

    Kinda sus my man...
  • You can't hold people culpable for trials held in your own head
    How you gonna call me toxic when you start screaming when you get mad
    Was I supposed to take it, let you trample me with wrong facts
    You can't take someone trying to improve if it doesn't come right back
    To you, and I know your ex did a good job jumping ship
    But I still helped you through it, saying you did things right and shit
    How blinded must I have been to constantly let you in
    You tested all my empathy, and I'm the one who let you do it

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day 

    Now get this I'm not trying to martyr myself now,
    But I'm sure you've heard that what goes up must come down
    And it came crashing down, on me
    Cause when the time was right you stop pulling and you pushed
    put me right where you wanted me
    You said you needed saving from your so-called  fears
    And I did what I could to help and forgot myself for over a year
    Now I'm back to myself I realize my fucked up spine is due to you,
    Bent over backwards jumping through hoops just to see you through.

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day

    I guess after all that, you won't see me walk past, I'm just dead to you.
    you won't tell your friends that we stopped talking, 
    cause you know that they'll be on my side
    And you can't handle confrontation when  you know that you're not right
    Avoidance and cowardice, I guess they suit you just fine  
    What I need can only breathe when you're gone
    I'm practicing abstinence from this absinth you had me on
    Your exes  took to drinking
    Who could think a person could go on 
    Celebrating so long after righting a wrong 

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day 

    I should have trusted my gut cause when I think of you I feel sick 
    Vomit inducing, like a crack addict who can no longer get high 
    or get by, withdrawal the only thing on the mind 
    And it's fine (but it isn't)
    I should have probably checked your best by date 
    Your expiration has really left me with a sour taste
    Food poisoning being the name of the game
    Cause every part of you I ingest, made me feel more of the same
    Worse for wear, my body's rejecting you but it's too late
    You've already turned my insides to black
    Turned my light into a darkness and
    You grabbed the sun, sunk it, and then claimed it was a fair fight
    Your arrogance is overwhelming, all you have is your backbite

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time
  • Game of Bands 211: Epic Rap Battles: Dreams vs Reality: Dreams

    Vocals by firstdragonfruit & sleeper

    [Dreams makes an opening proposition:]

    Dreams are the thoughts and the spaces in between
    You scream, I scream, but in the end I am the Queen
    You can have your pain, sadness, death, and despair
    I'll be riding on a dragon, opium laced wind in my hair
    It's called hopes and dreams,
    not hopes and realities.

    So just sit your ass down
    While I live out your hyperboles
    Take a ride on my limpid perception
    As I open your mind to your world of deceptions

    I take your magnanimous, inconceivable, fabulous
    Morph the flat to phantasmagoric, euphoric life in the nebulas
    Your brain is blown, blitzed by the beauty, butterflies blow you a kiss
    Cuz you never knew you could be blessed by a world as stunning as this

    I explode your sensations
    scenes that your body can't handle
    I explore your temptations
    Burning you up like a candle

    You see the colours you hide, glowin' up like stars in the night
    You're fighting darkness with unicorns, as you explode it with light
    I make your wishes come true
    As your desires take flight
    Riding high in the magic as you take on the sights

    And it's true that a dream can be extra scary
    But our spiders teeth can't get through skin
    And they prefer dairy
    We got flying fairies, snozberries, and talking dromedaries
    Making your real fantasies come to life

    In dreamland you can have a husband and a wife.
    Just like the gods that everyone likes so much
    You can be in Boston for Breakfast and Laos for lunch.
    So please just accept what you got
    Dreams are better, reality's not

    Why do I feel trapped in this waking life?
    How do I get back to my dreams?

    [An alarm sounds, signaling the transition back into wakefulness.]

    Oh! Welcome back. We missed you. Look around.
    Everything is the same it ever was.
    And that's because:

    Dreams will hold you back if they're all you have
    Concerned with what could be instead of what it is
    For the ideal you'll bite, kick, punch and scratch
    But perfectionism sullies your accomplishment

    Your team is lame, weak, timid and tame
    My team's a mountain lion, sniffing cocaine
    Your dreams are stifled, bleached of all of their color
    Cuz dreams are nothing more than reality's buffer

    You can dream of bluer skies, keep hoping and wishin'
    But there has to be action to realize your vision, my time here is short as I contort my mind
    Attempting to accept that life is divine
    There’s more to reality than meets the eye

    Babies are born, people laugh, people love, people cry
    Dreams have wings, but realities the ground
    In dreams when you scream it won’t make a sound
    And Don Sutherland is not around to save you from this nightmare you found

    Yourself in when the dream went bad
    and you realize that its all you had
    but then you wake up and you fill your cup
    you forget about it, you’re no longer stuck

    you pick up in the world you left behind
    and if you give it a chance I think you’ll find
    This waking life can be so sublime
    Feeling love again for the first time
    Telling you all the trouble has been worthwhile

    When you're flowing with your style and getting in the zone
    Whether you're rooming, married, or living alone
    It's that feeling of accomplishment when you realize you made it
    It's that reeling from astonishment when you realize the greatest

    Thing that ever happened to you was waking up
    And you contemplate all the things that you're proud of
    It's skydiving, horse riding hanging with friends
    Reality is wonderful I hope it never ends

    How do I get back to this waking life?
    (AHHHHHHHHH)
    Why do I feel trapped in my dreams?
    (AHHHHHHHHH)

    Consciousness Wars V: Dreams Strike Back

    Life grounded has gone to shit
    Even the worst type of TV is named after it
    Reality. What a nasty sounding word
    Makes me think of bills, heartbreak, bad weather and my dead bird
    During the day my subconscious is silent
    The id is trapped behind the egos violence

    Welcome to the temple, the garden of your mind
    Feed crystal seeds I proceed to manifest at speeds unshackled by time
    Possibilities deathless, synchronicities senselessly endless,
    I take your pain and create a world leaving you dazzled and breathless.

    I give you colours of hope
    Blissed love that’s leaving you woke
    You’re flying high in the sky, heart mind and spirit elope.
    I let you hear, taste, see, smell, feel out of reality’s reach
    I take the sensing out of sensible, leaving reality weak
    My true self awakens in the light of my dreams
    Sadness doesn't exist where the sun always gleams

    Why do I feel trapped in this waking life?
    How do I get back to my dreams?
  • Our team:
    Jake C
    Emily
    Scott

    Enemy team:
    Scoots
    Tomble
    Neon Crisis

    ---------------

    RAP BATTLE REPUBLIC
    -------------------
    VERSE 1

    On music Jake C. can't make up his mind
    how to take scoooot's scraps and get 'em combined
    Scoooot's rhythms puke poison like ricin
    Scoooot's beats suck stronger than a dyson
    Jake's song is smooth for someone so short
    Watch cartoons, sip starbucks, a quart!
    Lounging in fuzzy pink pajamas
    Eat pizza pineapple with Dalai Lama, Obama
    Read comic books all day, passing time
    Play video games instead of mixing the rhyme
    his music theory's keen - funk tracks preferred
    Coolest cut made from the mind of a nerd

    CHORUS 1

    Our team is the best it could be
    Scottpontiac, Jake C, and me, Emily
    The other team you don't want to be on
    Tomble two thousand, Scoooots and Neon

    VERSE 2

    Pontiac types rhymes like a text tortilla
    Tomble spews scripts like verbal diarreah
    scott makes mnemonics that move with mystique
    tomble takes a try, just a middle class geek
    from an English posh county, payin' high rent
    scott strives to send a song - phone's 1 percent
    from a New England county full of Bahstan (boston) schmucks
    Tomble's less Lord of the Rings, more Mighty Ducks
    Pontiac can't do mornings, dazed crazy hair
    Tomble's ass got kicked, they saw his underwear (true story)
    If you ask him advice, he'll overshare
    Scott's losing stuff, phone and keys somewhere

    CHORUS 2

    Our team's the Rap Battle Republic
    beat bangs bigger than a nightstick
    Other team's the Down and Out Deadbeats
    Their track sucks so sad, take a backseat

    VERSE 3

    Emily's a stoned canadian gamer
    She has ADHD, so there's her disclaimer
    pink stuffed animals - it's so exhausting
    TikToks a thousand hours on animal crossing
    Neon's a metalhead with hair to his hip
    Such a know-it-all, never shuts his lip
    Social malcontent who doesn't dress well
    Uses internet slang, IRL
    Neon's in crisis , spitting in his beard,
    Listener surmises, he's just too weird
    Emily is awkward but she raps like a champ
    Drives a toyota prius to her outdoor camp

    Chorus 3

    Our team is the best it could be
    Scottpontiac, Jake C, and me, Emily
    The other team you don't want to be on
    Tomble two thousand, Scoooots and Neon
    Our team's the Rap Battle Republic
    Rap rocks racier than a spin kick
    Other team's the Down and Out Bad Beats
    IF they submit a track, they are dead meat!
  • So am I supposed to be impressed
    By your literary finesse, come on
    You're a loose cannon, always screaming in reckless abandon
    Like a dying salmon gasping under an eagle's talon
    Stop acting like a paragon, an erudite
    When you've lost sight of what's right out of spite
    You fight me, gaslight me
    You write silly rhymes about me
    Tryna rally the people against me
    Tryna plea for third party sympathy
    You one-man pity party
    Well, I'm done, woman, sorry not sorry
    Don't expect an apology
    You've lost my respect baby
    Cos what you see is far from reality
    Just another aspect of your insanity

    +Hook
    I bid goodbye
    To all your pitiful lies
    The regrets and mistakes that I've made
    I'm no longer in pain

    I feel alive
    what a beautiful night
    used up all of the love you betrayed
    I'm no longer afraid

    You act like I'm extremely petty
    That I'm bathing in my own hypocrisy
    You're the one who abused my sincerity and put me down
    Yet you had the audacity to turn the tables around
    So down I would rather just drown
    While you're out preaching I'm a clown
    Telling other people I'm toxic and sick
    Crying a river saying I'm a lunatic
    Well fuck me with a stick, boohoo
    You're the one who likes doing voodoo
    So don't you dare lecture me
    When all you've done is torture me
    Pressure me til i break
    Constricting me like a snake
    Come to think of it, that's what you are
    A serpent, an avatar of torment

    +Hook
    I bid goodbye
    To all your pitiful lies
    The regrets and mistakes that I've made
    I'm no longer in pain

    I feel alive
    what a beautiful night
    used up all of the love you betrayed
    I'm no longer afraid
  • You can't imagine a future where we'll stomp you out?
    That's a pretty bold move, you're here acting so proud
    shouting so loud, listen you ain't got no cloud
    you've got nothing to back it up
    Nothing but chit chat, riff-raff
    Prepare to get some whiplash
    yeah I'll hit you like a truck
    I won't blame you if you wanna stop
    cause you'll drop dead, better quit while you're ahead
    I'll take you to the river give you boots of lead
    chicken out now or I'll tear you to shreds

    You can't choose, you'll lose either without or with a bruising
    Now it might be quite amusing but I'll give you one last chance
    get out while you can, this ain't no game of bands
    it's a warzone
    and I'm heading for the throne
    better get out of the way
    or you'll be limping back home



    6 minutes' too much? Damn, you're gonna wish it was 3
    I don't want to be mean, but you're just making it easy
    I'd rather be a lemming so I could jump off a cliff
    Better than to sit here and listen to you riff

    I'm glad I've got a hypeman, even from the other team
    and hell indeed awaits, but it's not waiting for me
    Can't you already see? I'm in it to win it
    I am pushing the limit
    no matter how you spin it
    I am bringing the gold
    You're in here going AB
    I'm the king of the flow
    You're nothing I'm pro
    You're dissing my crew
    Hell no I'm going solo
    You say you're not a no-show,
    well oh no!
    we're going to see...
    Can you handle the heat?
    You think you're so hot?
    Nah, mate you're gonna freeze.
    Here luv, take the mic
    yo DJ switch the beat!



    Have you thought of some more rhymes
    thinking that will save you?
    Well I hate to tell you
    but dense lines mean bugger all
    when they're as empty as your erased mind

    Yes I'm quite the gazelle
    I'm indeed quick on my feet
    the lion's easy meat
    but still, I'm somehow winning
    I'm beginning to think
    that the lion's declawed
    you're a fraud,
    nought,
    not a single thought
    that's original
    now bow before the lyrical
    god of gob

    ps. I hope you get it
    I'm not sure if you heard it
    mister Florida man,
    but you can shut a gator up
    with the force of a rubber band

    wasn't even close, but it was a fair fight
    now hugs and kisses, have a very nice night
  • Team 13, time to shine
    We’re about to hit you in the Hotsp0t

    Can I have your attention please?
    Gonna blow out these clowns like a morning breeze
    Someone, anyone, an ambulance please,
    But not for me!

    Good morning, I’m triumph
    You heard right, I’m a triumph
    Winning out the gate
    Brushing off the wasted hate
    Now as I stand up, I’m baffled
    By the riff raff in the rabble
    Specocean, parky, jolly
    Combining psychobabble
    I wish I understood the dribble from the other mic
    Sounds like dating advice from a puppy-loving sprite
    How’s the lesson, the classroom?
    I bet it’s kinda tense
    When you’re teaching cheesy lines that you heard from your parents

    Chorus:
    Standing tall, above them all
    Put these jokers on blast,
    Kicking ass, taking no names
    Attention, we’re giving the masterclass, the masterclass

    Now the baby’s been burnt,
    The boomers will hurt

    Fire, water, wind and dirt, the mystery abounds
    When Jollybeard says magnets, their brain explodes aloud
    Now I don’t want to hate on music taste, the Posse is a crowd
    But alcopops and makeup, are they making Jesus proud?
    Across the ocean, we find spec, he’ll forget that he got wrecked
    On Queen Street Mall he rides the roos, asking all for dollarydoos
    A messy desk suggests a brilliant mind,
    But I’ve seen his dive, amazed that he’s still alive
    You know spec’s brain is basically sludge
    Cos every time he hears a song he needs a reddit nudge
    But when the chuds are asking for pop poetry,
    He offers up some Canuck shit called How You Remind Me!
    It’s almost as bad as parky’s dog obsession,
    It seems his sanity is in eternal recession,
    The boomerposting from these clowns, they laughed at Pickle Rick,
    The three we’re dissing, just embarrassing, give them the flick


    Chorus:
    Standing tall, above them all
    Put these jokers on blast,
    Kicking ass, taking no names
    Attention, we’re giving the masterclass, the masterclass

    Outro:

    Can’t teach teens to flirt with your masculinity stained on your jeans and your t shirt

    Your golden hide begs for a bloody spike,
    Your envoy filled my cup til the dead of night!

    Mehmed II:
    I’m Mehmed, you pip, you’re worth less than spit,
    I lead the greatest empire that owns your shit,
    This insolence, ridiculous, time to pay,
    150,000 Ottomans will ruin your day!

    Vlad:
    They’ll tremble at the tales for a thousands years,
    The forest of Targoviste will haunt your fears,
    You might have an empire, I run this show
    Where my terror reigns, the tributes flow

    Mehmed II:
    Yes I’m impressed, but you’re best of the rest,
    The rats are in a hurry at my behest,
    Wallachia is mine, fourteen years you’ll die,
    Corvinus will make sure of your demise

    Prechorus

    The Sultan, against the beast,
    A Transylvanian legacy

    Chorus

    A battle a day keeps the church away,
    When the boys crusade, the bonds will fray
    Convulsions of time, reigning blood divine
    Dracula against the Ottoman line
    The blood of the innocent, life will drown
    As petty men bicker over who has ground
    Iron fists and bloodlust makes thrilling tales,
    The pointlessness of feudalism’s why it failed.

  • Lets go.

    This team got style, we were born to play
    Around the globe that is how we’re raised
    You won’t see jake, scott and emily
    Ticking the boxes going to smoke all 3

    Across the pond our lyrics are spitting
    Against our truth, you best be quitting
    Like a drink or seven, Tequila and stout
    We bringing the noise, Going to drown you out,

    Setting the rules of battle be right
    You know what we got, you know we’re tight
    Fixing for this battle we the ones to beat,
    Knock you down, straight off your feet.
    [4:06 PM]
    Straight from the horse's mouth, said miss emily
    “Ah there’s lots of ways you can roast me” (WHAT)
    Setting yourself up with that innuendo
    Let’s hit play cause it’s time to go
    Choosing how to say it, how to spin this rhyme
    1000 hours on Animal crossing, it’s just a waste of time
    Selfie to the tik to the toc don’t cut it
    Attention of a spider, mounties just ignore miss muffet
    Kitted in pink, camping under the stars
    Driving a Prius, can’t mend the scars
    Talking bout the candies on the day to day
    Make you like Peter to the sweet MJ
    Setting your own traps, hipster anime geeker
    We’re going to kill it like Pratchets Grim Reaper.
    You ain’t got game, it’s required to play
    LMAO on repeat is just what you say.
    Like a choir boy all neat, fresh and young
    You take what we give right up your street.

    Scott Pontiac, been or Reddit a while
    Taking his turn, trying to be in style
    As the sun comes up, Scott best beware
    Looking like an astronaut and fozzie the bear
    Playing it cool, while taking his time
    Just pass the beer, or 3 is fine
    Without a phone, he’d always be late
    Just bear in mind that round is a shape
    Can’t be bothered to charge the phone
    Part of the 1%, that’s the battery groans,
    Listen to the tunes of Milli Vanilli
    Keep Lip Syncing too, you can’t stay with me
    Nickleback rules, not ashamed to say
    Chat USA, Each and every day
    Used to Hack data, No can’t hack a bag
    Avoid him at parties, when in fancy rags
    Just like Popeye, he likes his oil
    But you can keep the olives, they just spoil
    Just like the bomber with a Boston Bag
    You better watch your step, you’ve been had.

    Jake can’t be sure what it means to be short
    Come here fella, it’s our retort
    Just like emily you like some fruit
    Pineapple Pizza is like your loot
    Just keep it away from my Ham
    We’ll keep swinging, cause that’s our jam
    Drinking your coffee, take-a-way starbucks
    Taking us on, you think we give a...lucked
    out of this rhyme, pink pajamas suck

    Like mickey and his gang, you’re going to get clubbed
    Feeling how we rolling, This ain't no snub
    You think you guys got, it this battle is yours
    This battle just a beating, like a virus’ spores
    Infect you with our beats,our winning melodies
    We’re going to give it like the “boys” on speed
    We heard you in the line for Spider man #7
    That’s the comics not the movies, you think that’s heaven
    Geeking out on Robin, and the fact there’s 5
    Get out of your mama’s, start to feel alive
    We got to drop it now, going to cripple your flow
    Get back on your “specials bus” kid, it’s time to go.

    [Verse A]
    Peaking through the iron curtain
    You remember the good times
    I'm all lost in the supermarket
    Do you miss the bread lines?

    [Verse B]
    When your words were censored
    The KGB and their tricks
    Banned books banned the Beatles
    Would you go back to the Bolsheviks?

    [Chorus]
    I don't want to go back
    Now that I'm free
    I was a prisoner
    Now I'm a refugee

    I don't want to go back
    To the USSR
    The hammer and sickle
    The red and gold star

    [Verse C]
    Why would you be nostalgic
    You forget the disappeared
    Longing for a bygone era
    When your leaders were feared

    [Verse D]
    You want weekends at the dacha
    Want your stable well paying job
    You might end up in Siberia
    Fourteen years in a gulag

    [Chorus]
    I don't want to go back
    Now that I'm free
    I was a prisoner
    Now I'm a refugee

    I don't want to go back
    To the USSR
    The hammer and sickle
    The red and gold star

    Axe of Avarice

    In sires' way
    My father laid
    The dire trace
    To my own pain
    Though I survive
    I'm not the same

    The air is clear in Sahyadri
    Hued with blood
    A prize awaits

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shorn incisor
    Fell through time
    And kingly gain

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shining symbol
    Fell through time
    And into fame

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To Mahadeva

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To father's grace

    Men are weak in the wake of modernity
    Mired and molded by colder designs
    A thief and a god divided as not by knowledge
    It's that fear
    That ever drove us here
    A cloth we're both hewn from, but differently

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shorn incisor
    Fell through time
    And kingly gain

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shining symbol
    Fell through time
    And into fame

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To Mahadeva

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To father's grace

    VERSE
    This a tale of Junior Seau
    He was a player in the NFL
    Tough as nails, he showed them how
    Impassioned player, he gave'em hell
    But retirement was not to be
    chronic traumatic encephalopathy
    It made him angry, crazy and sad
    Multiple concussions, who knew they were bad?

    PRECHORUS
    It matters if you win or lose
    And if you play the game
    It all depends on which you choose
    the body or the brain
    The limits are within you
    Your career has a length of time
    The battle on the field begins to
    Pit your heart against your mind

    CHORUS
    Shake it off, walk it off,
    get back in the game
    Nobody ever thought
    he'd go down in flames
    Work it out, there is no doubt
    at then of the day,
    he'll alright, it all checked out,
    he's ok to play!
    Bang it up, won't hang it up,
    the job must get done,
    feeling shaken up, but
    he's second to none
    Tough it out, he's strong throughout
    the crowd is shouting hooray!
    he'll alright, it all checked out,
    he's ok to play!

    VERSE
    Eric Lindros was the MVP
    A Canadian in the NHL
    Now's an advocate for CTE
    A depressive suicidal hell
    Argentina's Javier Mascherano
    Collided head-on, collapsed in a fall
    2 minutes later they said he was ready to go
    FIFA's consussion protocol?

    PRECHORUS
    It matters if you win or lose
    And if you play the game
    It all depends on which you choose
    the body or the brain
    The limits are within you
    Your career has a length of time
    The battle on the field begins to
    Pit your heart against your mind

    1/2 CHORUS
    Shake it off, walk it off,
    get back in the game
    Nobody ever thought
    he'd go down in flames
    Work it out, there is no doubt
    at then of the day,
    he'll alright, it all checked out,
    he's ok to play!

    OUTRO
    Only now are they beginning to think
    a subsitute system is needed
    So many player were pushed to the brink
    no medical warnings were heeded....

    CHORUS
    Shake it off, walk it off,
    get back in the game
    Nobody ever thought
    he'd go down in flames
    Work it out, there is no doubt

    he'll alright, it all checked out,
    he's ok to play!
