How It Would Be
I'm feeling like I'm still in the same old situation
I'm speaking but no one's listening, it's the same old conversation
But I know there's no hope
But I know there's no hope
I'm waiting for something, something to happen
I'm hating procrastinating but I can't fond the motivation
But you know there's no hope
But you know there's no hope
And you can't believe you're walking through this hell
Cause all you wish to be - wish you were someone else
And all hope's lost again
I'm seeing but not believing, is it just my imagination?
I'm dreaming of devastation of this whole entire generation
But we know there's no hope
But we know there's no hope...back to top
Angry Tree
Death's rain falls upon us I see the times' arrival at hand
In rows aligned we march now drawn from these careful plans
Starved in this militia we hunger now for the fight
End this painful awaiting our gallant fate arrives tonight

Now here it comes the force we seek it breaks the dark with laser streak
We break down tremendous heat I count the ranks too far to see
We grip the iron close at hand they rip our armour to useless strands
We see the dead scattered in their tribes
We feel their souls soar towards the sky

Iron fists it's terror twists you've yet to feel it's gleam insist
So join the lines to keep in time it's iron wields from armoured wrists
You're drawing near you must compare the clash of fighting iron fists

The coupled forces gain a step ahead
But then fall back from which the ground they tread
Throw down their weapons make for the flee
Break from this havoc is their final pleaback to top
Weeds
This cancer is killing me
as much as it is killing you.
If it takes you away from me,
I don't know what I would do.
Just try for some peace of mind
but it's so hard to find.
It's so hard to just sit and wait
and wait some more
staring at the door.
Skim through the magazines.
Pretend like everything's gonna be allright,
although you know it won't be.
Unstable.
Unstable.
It's hard to be the one who's strong,
who's always got a shoulder to cry on.
Who's got a shoulder for me?
When I'm about to breakdown you're never around.
But maybe it's better that way.
You've got enough to worry about.
You've got your hands full, don't you?
Don't you see this cancer is killing me
like it's killing you?
Mentally.
Unstable.
Unstable.
And all I really want to know if she's gonna be allright,
'cause she's been in there a long, long time
and I've been out there losing my mind.
You're scared, you're frightened,
you're so afraid of what he may say.
But you try and be brave for me sitting impatiently
in the lobby of emergency.
You burst on through that door with this look on your face, I've,
I've never seen before.
You explode into endless tears,
whisper in my ear, Baby, Baby: "I've only got one more year."
Unstable.
Unstable.back to top
Desire
Why do I feel so alone in a crowd of people I know?
Is it wrong to feel so insecure and so unappealing?
Why walk around in disguise with a fake grin on my face?
What would it prove?
What would I gain?
I'd still feel so out of place.
Damned if I do,
damned if I don't.
But I won't turn out like you.
Damned if I do,
damned if I don't.
But I won't turn out like you.
Midlife crisis at the age of 22, who knew?
I need some answers.
Cross the street and down the avenue I stopped for the woman
and Paid five bucks and got my palm read.
And she said: "You shouldn't be smiling boy,
this life line says you're allready dead."
Just keep on moving forward never turning back.
But with every step ahead I take they pull me two steps back.
They pull me two steps back.
Damned if I do,
damned if I don't.
But I won't turn out like you.back to top
My Mind Is Dangerous
(Street sounds; door opens; sound of television, crying baby and mother in
the kitchen)
MOTHER: Yeah, sure, now you walk in! You walk in now, four o'clock! You're
one hour late for dinner! You know, the school called me today and told me
you'd been playing hooky. Do you know that? Who do you think you are?
Don't walk away from me! Don't walk away from me!
(Door opens and closes; Mother's voice muffled; Kid takes off coat,
rewinds tape on answering machine.)
GIRLFRIEND: Hi. It's me. I just wanted to tell you that, I don't know if
you know this, but we haven't really been gettin' along lately. And, I
just don't feel the same anymore. And, I hope we can still be friends and
all, but I don't wanna go out with you anymore. Sorry.
(Long silence; Beep)

Let's Pretend
In the stillness of the night
My eyes are closed
My mouth is wide
I could see her face
Her beautiful hair
I could recognize
She looks at me cold
She probably don't know how I am
Mommy it's me
It's Keith
You had me back when

But sometimes I like to pretend
That she knows me
That she holds me
But sometimes I like to pretend
That she knows me
That she holds me
I guess I can't
Because she doesn't know who I am

My mind it's dreaming
God it's so misleading
Do you think it's 'cause I've grown old
Is it true that what I was told
You cried to leave me
You know I know it's not your fault
You had a husband who was selfish and cold
Believe me I know
Now I hear you used to treat me cold
You disappeared and left me all alone
I'm sure you didn't know right from wrong
'Cause both of you were always getting stoned.

But sometimes I like to pretend (repeat)
That she knows me
Sometimes I like to pretend
That she holds me
Sometimes I like to pretend
That she knows me
Sometimes I like to pretend
That she holds me
I guess I can't
Because she doesn't know who I amback to top
River Runs Red
>From day one I could not comprehend
Was it us, was it me or was it them?
Friends will come and go as it seems
And now I have no shoulder on which to lean
Still I do not understand
You break your back for something
Well where's the fans?
CHORUS
Show me-respect
And I'll
Show me-show you right back
I see the boys that I once called my friends
They'll fake a smile and then they'll shake your hand
When will this ever end?
I look around at my brothers
My only true friends
CHORUS
You got a lot to learn my friend
You've got a lot to learn about respect
------------------------------------------------------------------------------back to top
Other Side of the River
We once were one but now we just are over
We'll talk things out, perhaps I'll lend my shoulder
Now none is waht we have become, we're falling
Where nobody knows, inside the unknown, still falling
I'm shivering and shaking life a leaf within
I'm shivering and shaking like a leaf within
In this life I've naturally grown bolder
In this life, desperation's frozen
As desperate as we are they see no movement
Stagnant situations can be fuming
I'm shivering and shaking life a leaf within
I'm shivering and shaking like a leaf within...
And now we're none...
I'm shivering and shaking life a leaf within
I'm shivering and shaking like a leaf within...
And now we're none...back to top
Seasons
I got the razor at my wrist
'Cause I can't resist
I've got this fever burnin' fist
That does as I wish
But when I get downtown
And see what's around
I just know there's got to be
A better place to be found
CHORUS
Oh, God help me
The river runs red and I think I'm dyin'
Well I knew there'd come a day
When my mind would say "Hey are you afraid"
Well all I know is that I been down here tryin'
Well, I'll bleed on through the night
I suppose I'll bedead by the morning light
No don't be surprised if you mind when you find me
CHORUS
Oh, God help me

Respect
Oh, pirates yes they rob us,
sold I to the merchant ships.
minutes after they took I,
from the bottomless pit.
But my hand it was made strong,
by the hand of the almighty.
He fought in this generation,
triumphantly.
Won't you help to sing,
these songs of freedom
It's all I ever had,
redemption songs
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
none but outselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'cause none o'them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets?
While we stand aside and look.
Yes, some say it's just a part of it,
we've got to fullfill the book.
Won't you help to sing, these songs of freedom
It's all I ever had, redemption songs
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
none but outselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'cause none o'them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets?
While we stand aside and look.
Yes, some say it's just a part of it,
we've got to fullfill the book.
Won't you help to sing, these songs of freedom
It's all I ever had, redemption songs
It's all I ever had, redemption songs

This Time
When all is said and done
I'll always be your son
But all is not forgiven
Well I'm on my knees pleading
Just 'cause I'm grown you think I don't need
Much more than what you've ever given me

So when we gonna get together
Seems there's no time for me
You act like you got forever
You've got time, but you ain't got time for me

You said you've got time
But you ain't got time for me

Now that you've gone and tossed
The bottle away now will ya
Start a new life with the new wife
Well she'll never be my mother
I suppose that you know you oughta
Remember the ones you left behind

You're just letting it slip away now
You act like things are fine
I know you think you've been born again
But this time
You're leaving your son behind

This time
This time
This timeback to top
Method of Groove
We've got the method of groove that grabbed your attention
Now that you're aware we're gonna give you the message
My father taught me many things
Living deaf, dumb & blind will get you nothing
So listen up and hear what I have to say
It's never too late to learn in this day and age
We'll point you in a new direction
Passed down to this generation

If you've learned anything from me
It would be to hold on to your dreams
Learn from my mistakes
And it will take off some of the weight
He said 'You got your whole life to live,
And so much more to give,
Never compromise and you will never live a lie'
He said 'Son, remember where you came from'

We never doubted ourselves for a minute
Oh they may criticize and compromise, but we were always in it
So come on down and see what this is all about
It's in our soul, on the road, wherever we may go
So wake up, nothing can stop us,
We got the chaos so just let us
Provide the lines that make your mind spend the time
Think before you sink to the bottom

He said 'Son, remember where you came from'back to top
My Eyes
A little older, little wiser
With every breath I learn just a little more
And with all I've seen, I've finally made up my mind
Enough of this world
Enough blood in these eyes
So, so, so sick of this life

It's about time that I realized
Release this hate from inside
Enough blood in my eyes

Call it what you will
Call it suicide
Disregard how you feel
I'm just freeing my mind
Clench my teeth as I sleep
So, so, so sick of this life
Cannot take, cannot fake
Can't shake this blood from these eyes

All I have and all I will be
Nevertheless I'll live for all eternity
'Cause you can't erase my words, can't erase my mind
You can't wipe out my thoughts
Can't shake this blood from my eyes
So, so, so don't even try

Just give me one good reason to live
I'll give you three to die
Let's leave this world behindback to top
