SOBRIETY

(Listen to sobriety
Always in the third degree
When you wake up you’ll see
All the things that I have seen
This is all you get
It’s all you’ll ever net)

When you wake up you will see
All these things I’ve seen
Then you’ll know what I mean
Don’t waste your time with me
Soon I’ll set you free
Don’t you know we should be free

Listen to sobriety
Yeah you got to listen
Always in the third degree

(This is all you get
It’s all you’ll ever net)

Don’t try and lecture me
And teach me your philosophy
Don’t you know the truth is always free
I have to set you free

(Chorus)

This is all you get
It’s all you’ll ever net

When you wake up you’ll see
All of these atrocities
Don’t believe all you see
I’m deafened by the din of your screams
(Don’t believe all you see
Nothing’s what it seems to be)


(Chorus)

This is all you get
It’s all you’ll ever net


TINNITUS

There is a noise inside my mind
A steady tone that’s amplified
A symptomatic subjective sound
Breaks the silence then surrounds
Feedback loops play continuously
Oscillating phantom frequencies

I need to drown it out
I need to kill the sound
I need to break this down

Crosstalk acoustic shock
Echoes that never stop
Interference that can’t be blocked
Crosstalk that never stops

There’s a ringing in my ear
And I just can’t seem to hear
There’s a screaming in my ear
That I just can’t seem to clear

A symptomatic perception of sound
Creates a circuit that can’t be unwound

I need to drown it out
I need to kill the sound
I need to break this down

Crosstalk acoustic shock
Echoes that never stop
Interference that can’t be blocked
Crosstalk that never stops

There’s a ringing in my ear
And I just can’t seem to hear
There’s a screaming in my ear
That I just can’t seem to clear
There’s a ringing in my ear
And it’s bringing me close to tears
Someone’s screaming in my ear
And it’s been ringing for years




 YOU’RE A HURRICANE

I have to say
You are just like a hurricane
Always blowing your driving rain
Spinning depression that you maintain
Wind and pressure you can’t restrain
Surging waves of torrential pain
All this torment making me insane
Ooh, you’re a hurricane

So you come ashore and you entertain
The very thought that maybe I’m to blame
For the path of destruction that still remains
And circulates with such disdain
Ooh, you’re a hurricane

And round and round,
And round and round we go
And round and round,
And round and round we go
And round and round,
And round and round we go
And round and round,
And spiral down we go

And now you throw
Thrashing walls of insulting names
Spiraling downward in a fit of rage
Drowning me in a flood of shame
Toxic fronts collide without constraint
No matter what I just can’t assuage
You crashing down like the rock of Cain
Ooh, you’re a hurricane

Surging waves of torrential pain
All this torment making me insane
Eroding what’s left of my scatterbrain
Evaporate this it’s inhumane
Ooh, you’re a hurricane

(Chorus)










THE PREACHER

Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher
Vanity of vanities, all is vain
What profit hath a man of all his labor under the sun
One generation passes away and another comes

Then the preacher says to them
You should tell me all your sins
And say a hundred amens
But don’t forget to give your tenth

Seven Sundays since a stroll to the corner
And the man in the long robe cries, all is vain
Did you really think he’d sing another tune for you
Another generation passes away and so do you

Then the preacher says to them
All have fallen short and sinned
Better say a hundred amens
I’ll pray for you a good word I’ll put in

But did you think he cared
Did you think he had the power to save
And did you fall away
Or did you buy the creed of spoon-fed faith
And did you think he’d share
Did you think he’d lead you through the gate
And did you go astray
Or did you buy the creed of spoon-fed faith

And blind guides paralyze
And blind guides their hands full of tithes

Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher
Vanity of vanities, all is vain
What profit hath a man of all his labor under the sun
This generation passes away and now you’re done

And blind guides swallow lies
And blind guides they’re dead inside




 SOBRIETY II

When you wake up you’ll see
All these things I have seen
Then you will know what I mean
Don’t waste your time with me
Soon I will set you free
Don’t you know we should be free

Do you know the world you see
Isn’t what they said it’d be
Yet you still believe
Don’t believe all you see
Nothing’s what it seems to be
I’m deafened by the din of your screams

And believe me when I tell you
That the world doesn’t love you

Don’t try and lecture me
And teach me your philosophy
Don’t you know the truth is free
Don’t waste your time with me
Soon I’ll get up and leave
I have to set you free

When you wake up you’ll see
All of these atrocities
Then you’ll know exactly what I mean
Don’t give up all your bets
Just because of my regrets
 And believe me when I tell you

That the world doesn’t love you
No, the world doesn’t love you

When you wake up you’ll see
Nothing’s what it seems to be
I’m deafened by the din of your screams
Don’t give up all your hope
Even at the end of your rope
Believe me when I tell you

That the world doesn’t love you
No, the world doesn’t love you


 GRAPHIC NATURE

Unnatural fascination
It’s just an invitation
Gossip and celebration
Tickles our inner sensations

It’s just our graphic nature
Masochistic culture

Carnage with a scandal
Cheating and lying vandals
Doesn’t even hold a candle
To what you think you can handle

It’s just our graphic nature
Masochistic culture

Do you have the intestinal fortitude
To watch me bleed
and are you fascinated by
Tales of debauchery

It’s just our graphic nature
Is it only human nature

Unnatural fascination
It’s just an invitation
Gossip and celebration
Tickles our inner sensations

It’s just our graphic nature
Voyeuristic vultures

Do you have the intestinal fortitude
To watch me bleed
and are you fascinated by
Tales of debauchery

It’s our graphic nature
Masochistic culture

It’s just our graphic nature
Is it only human nature
It’s just our graphic nature
Unnatural state of nature







 THE ONE WHO SHINES

Light, it shines my way
If only I would look
And not turn away

Life, it comes my way
If only I would open up
And embrace

You are the one who shines
And they can’t take that away
I am the one who’s blind
As the light becomes more gray
I cannot seem to find
I’ve lost my only way
You are the one who shines
Fractured and defrayed

Night, no shadows to face
If only just a constant
The abstract decays

Die, like a seed in the shade
Only to rise again
And quench the flame

You are the one who shines
The source that radiates
I am the one who’s blind
As the light becomes more gray
I cannot seem to find
The ones that gravitate
You are the one who shines
In esoteric waves

Light, it shines my way
If only I would look
And not turn away

Life, it comes my way
If only I would open up
And embrace

(Chorus)

Ooh...

OVIS ARIES

And so I let you down
I dropped your feet to the ground
I never meant to bruise your soul

Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
This one baby got away

And so I lift you up
All the way to the top
 I never meant to hold you down

Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
This one baby got away
Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
Don’t let this one get away
Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
Don’t let this one slip away

So your not what I found
You turned around upside down
I didn’t see just who you were

Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
This one baby got away

And So I found you now
It’s such a radical sound
To hear your voice it speaks to me

Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
This one baby got away
(She slipped away)
Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
Don’t let this one get away
Just like sheep we’ve all gone astray
Don’t let this one slip away








WHEN I DIE

And when I die
I, will say my goodbyes
And leave you
with words of why I had to...

(Ooh, ooh)
To a place made of gold
With fields of marigolds
(Ooh, ooh)
In a sky wrapped with bows
All the saints dressed in robes

And when you die
Hide all the tears from your eyes
And lead me
To a place where all is  young and new

(Ooh, ooh)
Where no one gets old
And the days are never cold
(Ooh, ooh)
No debts to ever owe
And the nights they never show

But in the day when your house trembles
And your pillars bow
And your grinders cease and crumble
And your windows are hard to see through
But there’s nothing I wouldn’t do
to be with you

And when I die
I, will see you










 SO CRUEL

How can you be so cruel
What did I ever do
All I did was give my love to you
How can you be so cruel

You were the one that came to me
You said you needed me
And now all I have to say
You’re the one that through it away
I can’t believe what you did
I can’t believe what you hid
you are so stone cold
your are axis bold

How can you be so cruel
What did I ever do
All I did was give my love to you
Then suddenly you’re untrue
It’s all the things you said
All the things going through my head
I can’t believe we’re through
How can you be so cruel

You were so unkind
It’s true my love was blind
You took advantage of my faith in you
But your ghost is so see through
You try to haunt me in my dreams
Like shadows on a movie screen
All these images in my head
A Jezebel with an open bed

How can you be so cruel
What did I ever do
All I did was give my love to you
Then suddenly you’re untrue
It’s all the things you said
All the things going through my head
I can’t believe your infidelity
You’ve got zero morality

You weren’t the one you claimed to be
You were too insane for me
You were the one who betrayed
And now you through it all away
I can’t believe what you did
I can’t believe what you hid
you are so stone cold
your are axis bold

(Chorus)
