Lullaby

She falls asleep to the sounds of gunfire
In the arms of chilly concrete
Alone in the ruins of a normal life
A four-year old Ancient weeps
She knows no life different
But dreams of so much more
A home, a warm meal, a family
In her sleep the angel smiles
The lives we live are so easy
Our struggle is heavenly to those with nothing
Yet we complain over small insignificant things
It’s time to wake up and smell the reality
Open your eyes and see
Those who feel you have nothing
Look closer and you’ll see
Reach  inside and find your humanity
It’s your lullaby
Lullaby, baby goodnight

She lays in bed struggling to breathe

Late at night she sits awake wondering
Worrying about the fate of her family
How they will go on when she’s gone
Misery loves company yet she’s alone
Unable to fight it she searches for peace
In cutting her skin she can see the light
With relief the angel smiles
Our lives are seem easy
The grass isn’t always greener
Struggle is agony to those in despair
It’s time to wake up and smell the reality
Open your eyes and you’ll see
Those who feel you have nothing
Look closer and you’ll see
Reach  inside and find your humanity
Lullaby, baby goodnight
It’s your lullaby
Baby Good Night

Prince of Stones

Promised me you’d stick
like glue, true blue, to the end
but you split like a coward
are you so empowered,
that you break word like bread,
it’s easy to blame, play the game
like a player, role the dice,
you always win, such a sin
but honey, players get played
your excuses are staid and
worth little more then nothing
superman you ain’t but darlin,
to remove the sting
always remember,
a pauper can be king
if he plays the real game
a word to the wise,
I’ll cut it down to manageable size
just end the bullshit riddles
and speak your mind.

Love you more

I didn’t know what to say
I never meant for her to feel that way
But it killed me to hear her cry from behind the bathroom door
You don’t love me anymore

Your smile never touches your eyes
The one on your face I barely recognise
Losing you cuts to the core
Because I know you don’t love me anymore

She can’t see me standing here
Listening to her tears
Hurting from the fear
When she sighs, then softly cries

You don’t love me anymore

I could just run away
Something always makes me stay
There is no one else to look for
(You are the one)
So how can you say I don’t love you anymore

You think I don’t care
You can’t see it so it’s not there
(Blind lady love)
You are what my heart cries for
Truly, I couldn’t love you more

She can’t see me standing here
Cheeks wet from my tears
Hurting when she sighs

You don’t love me anymore

I really couldn’t love you more

Shedding Skin

Wooden matches come alive
Paper roses weeping
Burst into fantastic flame

×

Just burn it away
Throw it away
Suffer like I suffer every day

×

Wood logs in a metal can
Doused in lighter fluid
A new life to begin

×

Burn away the I love you’s
Burn away the love we made
Burn away everything you meant to me

×

Burn it away

×

Pages torn from an empty life
Crumpled, stuffed in crevices
This is how you left me, dying

×

Just burn it away
Throw it away
Suffer like I suffer every day

×

Burn away the nights
Driving hell-bent for freedom
Screaming live forever

×

Burn away the I love you’s
Burn away the love we made
Burn away everything you meant to me

×

Just burn it away
Throw it away
Suffer like I suffer every day

×

Burn it away

×

Burn away the love you’s
Burn away the love we made
Burn away everything you meant to me

×

Burn it away

Dreaming Minds

the fever pain in my brain will drive me insane

rupture membranes and lacerate my pride

if I bother to try so I hide what’s inside

when I should be confiding

but life is confounding and

minds are designed to take pressure

sometimes they crack and the noise of the claque knock back shatters

fucked up chattering locked up confined

other minds take compression like a fine bowl of smoke

they bottle aggression and spit out diamonds

rare gems that brighten the horizon

I’m no quitter or weak sister mister

badass bitch all day and all night

put your dukes up still willing to fight alright

but bodies are breaking minds quaking

monster is at the door on the floor

and I’m really too tired to right anymore

what’s the score

put me in coach

I’m still ready and steady

goodnight

The Freebase Song

It happening again
I swear I still feel you
It steals away my air
I swear I still hate you
I want to move forward
Your ghost just won’t let me

·

It laughs at me while I SCREAM

·

I wish you would fuck off
(Just get away from me)
You smell like death and candy
(The fuck away from me)
You make me want to die
(So get away from me)

·

Your Theory doesn’t fly
Don’t kill me with kindness
Then stab me with goodbye

·

I fucking hate your memory

·

This can’t happen again
I swear I still hate you
Leaving you behind me
I don’t feel you anymore
Your ghost just can’t stop me

·

It cries while I SCREAM

·

You smell like death and candy
(The fuck away from me)
You make me want to die
(So get away from me)

·

I fucking hate your memory

·

Your Theory doesn’t fly
Don’t kill me kindness
Then stab me with goodbye
