2000 Light Years Away
I sit alone in my bedroom
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding
My love is yearning

I hole my breath and close my eyes and dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter,
We laugh togetherback to top
One for the Razorbacks
Juliet's trying to find out what she wants, but she don't know
Experience has got her down
Look this direction, I know it's not perfection, it's just me...
I want to bring you up again now

I'm losing what's left of my dignity
A small price to pay to see that you're happy
Forget all the disappointments you have faced
Open up your worried world and let me in

Juliet's crying cause now she's realizing love can be
Filled with pain and distrust
I know I am crazy, and a bit lazy
But I will try to bring you up again now.back to top
Welcome to Paradise
Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes
Some call it slums some call it nice
I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home
Welcome to Paradise

A gunshot rings out at the station
Another urchin snaps and left dead on his own
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's still now feeling like my home
I'm never gonna go

Dear mother, can you hear me laughin'?
It's been six whole months since I have left your home
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's still now feeling like my home
I'm never gonna go

Dear mother, can you hear me whinin'?
It's been three whole weeks since I have left your home
This sudden fear has left me tremblin'
Cause now it seems I am out here on my own
And I'm feeling so aloneback to top
Christie Road
Staring out of my window
Watching the cars go rolling by
My friends are gone
I've got nothing to do
So I sit here patiently
Watching the clock tick so slowly
Gotta get away
Or my brains will explode

Give me something to do to kill some time
Take me to that place that I call home
Take away the strains of being lonely
Take me to the tracks at Christie Road

See the hills from afar
Standing on my beat up car
The sun went down and the night fills the sky
Now I feel like me once again
As the train comes rolling in
Smoked my boredom gone
Slapped my brains up so high

Mother stay out of my way of that place we go
We'll always seem to find our way to Christie Road

If there's one thing that I need that makes me feel complete
So I go to Christie Road
It's home...back to top
Private Ale
I wonder down these streets all by myself
Think of my future now
I just don't know
I don't seem to care
I stop to notice that
I'm by your home
I wonder if you're sitting all alone
Or is your boyfriend there

Because I feel so right
Let my imagination go
Until you're in my sight
And through my veins temptation flows

So I sit down here on the hard concrete
Think of my future now
I just don't know
I don't seem to care
So I sit across the street from your home
I wonder if you're sitting all alone
Or is your boyfriend thereback to top
Dominated Love Slave
I want to be your dominated love slave
I want to be the one that takes the pain
You can spank me when I do not behave
Mack me in the forehead with a chain

Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drive those staples deep

I want you to slap me and call me naughty
Put a beltsander against my skin
I want to feel pain all over my body
Can't wait to be punished for my sins.back to top
One of My Lies
When I was younger I thought the world circled around me
But in time I realized I was wrong
My immortal thoughts turned into just dreams of a dead future
It was a tragic case of my reality

Do you think you're indestructable
And no one can touch you
Well I think you're disposeable
And it's time you knew the truth
Cause it's just one of my lies!

Why does my life have to be so small?
Yet death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?

Don't give me an answer cause you
Only know as much as I know
Unless you're been there once
Well I hardly think so

I used to pray all night
Before I lay myself down
My mother said it was right
Her mother said it too...
Why?back to top
80
My mental stability reaches its bitter end
And all my senses are coming unglued
Is there any cure for this disease someone called love
Not as long as there are girls like you

Everything she does questions my mental health
It makes me lose control
I just can't trust myself

If someone can hear me slap some sense into me
But you turn your head and I end up talking to myself
Anxiety has got me strung out and frustrated
So I loose my head or I bang it up against the wall

Sometimes I wonder if I should be left alone
And lock myself up in a padded room
I'd sit and spew my guts out to the open air
No one wants to hear a drunken fool.

I do not mind if this goes on
Cause now it seems I'm too far gone
I must admit I enjoy myself
80 please keep taking me away.back to top
Android
Hey old man in woman's shoes
I wonder if he knows I think he's crazy
When he was young did her have dreams
Of wearing woman's shoes and being crazy?

It makes me wonder when I grow to be that age
Will I be walking down the street begging for your spare change

Or will I grow that old?
Will I still be around?
The way I carry on I'll end up
Six feet underground
And waste away...

When the old man was in school
Did the golden rule make him go crazy
Or did he hide away from hopes
Behind a smile and smoking dope
It's crazy

It seems so frightening
Time passes by like lightning
Before you know it you're struck down
I always waste my time on my chemical emotions
It keeps my head spinning around.back to top
No One Knows
Why should my fun have to end?
For me it's only the beginning
I see my friends begin to age
A short countdown to what end

Call me irresponsible
Call me habitual
But when you think of me
Do you fill your head with schemes
Better think again
Cause no one knows

I don't want to cause no harm
But sometimes my actions hurt
Is there something I should find
To make plans for forever

Does it seem like all your memories fade
You soak up knowledge to fill the space
And still my answer remains...
I don't know.back to top
Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?
A thought burst in my head and I need to tell you
It's news that I for thought
Was it a dream that happened long ago?
I think that I just forgot
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad

There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy
There's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy
He makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting.
Someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting

I shuffle through my mind
To see if I can find
The words I left behind
Was it just a dream that happened long ago?
Oh well...
Never mind.back to top
Words I Might Have Ate
Now it seems I can't keep my mind of you
My brain drifts back to better days we've been through
Like sitting on blacktop of the school grounds
The love I bitched about I finally found

But now it's gone and I take the blame
So there's nothing I can do but take the pain
Why?

Now I dwell on what you remind me of
A sweet young girl who sacrificed her love
As for me... I am blind without a cause
And now I reazlied what I have lost

It was something real that I could have had
Now I play the fool whose stable soul's gone bad
Why?

Tell me the words I might have said
That's pumping pressure deep inside my head
Was it bad enough to be too late?
Just tell me the words I might have ate.back to top
Sweet Children
(from SKENE! records No. 10, 7" EP)

See a young girl so soft and blonde.
Doesn't attack me but she did once.
Intoxications in her veins.
Sweet young boy plays with her brain.
Lydia'll bring to life.
What are your chance not to oblige.
Putting his hand on her thigh.
Ability has now been ripped.
Take it away, I'd rather sit.
Sweet children, sweet children, sweet children. Remember when.
Johnny's playing fun and games, or else he's ?in the storage shed?.
Running from the light of day, or maybe lie and celebrate.
The funny circus from his head.
Follow me if you understand.
I'll trick her so she'll do it.
Then I'll sing and now we run.
Sweet children, sweet children, sweet children. Remember when.
Sweet children, sweet children, sweet children. Remember when.back to top
Best Thing in Town
(from SKENE! records No. 10, 7" EP)

Come with me and let's go for a ride
Follow me to the other side
As I sit around and watch you pout

Cause I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

Running wild and always running free
Doing things that I have never seen
Eerie colors and all I see are sounds

Now I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

(missing a verse here)

Come with me and let's go for a ride
Follow me to the other side
As I sit around and watch you pout

Cause I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

Running wild and always running free
Doing things that I have never seen
Eerie colors and all I see are sounds

Now I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

Strangeland
(from SKENE! records No. 10, 7" EP)

Looking at the clouds in the sky
floating image in my mind
?
Now I wonder where this place is from

Evidence is everywhere
I start to run, now I'm scared
?
Strange beings all around.
Everyone come to this place I've found

I'm feeling phyced
walking?wonder why
All my joys are open
No more crimes

My eyes are clear and now I'm cured
I only wanna be for sure
?
?

Get in my mind and you will find
Mother love from all mankind

My Generation
(from SKENE! records No. 10, 7" EP)

Well, people try to put us down.
Talkin' bout my generation.
Just because we get around.
Talkin' bout my generation.
The things they do look awful cold.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I hope I die before I get old.
Talkin' bout my generation.

My generation.

Why don't you all just fade away?
Talkin' bout my generation.
And don't try to dig what we all say.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm just talkin' bout my generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.

My generation.

Break it, fuck that shit!

Why don't you all just fade away?
Talkin' bout my generation.
And don't try to dig what we all say.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm just talkin' bout my generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.

My generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.

This is my generation.
This is my generation, baby.back to top
