Sleeps With Thunder
Is it just the Things you see that make it all worth while

Put your God into a box and keep him by your side

Hopeless is the refugee escaping from the truth

The mothership has passed you by now

there's nothing you can do

My time is finished here

Now choose what you must do

My eyes have shed the tears

And paid the price for you

Many here have seen the light

The devil sits and wonders

The man who keeps his heart a stone

Is the man who sleeps with thunder

Monuments and shrines are built to spirits that deceive

Soft associations with the angels you believe

Soon to find your friendly guides have lead you far astray

Now you walk in blackest night you never learned to pray

In your mind you pacify

Tricks and tales and lullabyes

Now you bid your soul goodbye

When you climb that mountain while the rain is coming round

The peak is only visible on your way back down

Everyone will tell you what it is you should believe

But hearing what you want to hear will give you no reliefback to top
[D. Wayne / K. Vanderhoof]

So now I've told you time after time
Jump to conclusions when you make up your mind
Is this the road you want to be on
You'll find out soon that it's not very long

Evil is breeding the master is grieving
A lie so deceiving
We all fall down

I see the news and it tells me each day
Is it a life when its not in the way
Which is it now please tell me this time
Before its too late and we all cross the line

Evil is breeding the master is grieving
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down

How many times will you let things go by
Before you stop believing the lie
As we are blindly lead right into the nooseback to top
Into Dust
When everythings coming up roses

The thorns will still leave scars on my hands

Just pour me a scotch and a soda

I'll get drunk and I'll act like a man

I gotta get some of that magic

I hear the voices calling

A song I dare not trust

And all my sleepless dreaming

It all turns into dust

I stopped all the screaming and crying

And yet I still don't understand

When all that you live for is dying

An hourglass empty of sand

I gotta be someone less tragic

I hear the wind is calling

A song I dare not trust

And all my sleepless dreaming

It all turns into dust

In lifeless shadows dreaming

My life is left un-feeling

And yet beyong this door

There must be more

My freedoms become too expensive

The price is much more than you see

But freedom creates an illusion

The freedom to save me from me

I gotta get some of that magic

I hear the voices callingback to top
Kiss for the Dead
It's the calm before the storm

Wishing you could see the light

Growing fear and sadness there

Can you tell its your final sight

Tubes and wires keep you here

Not alive and yet not dead

No feelings

You're wide awake in your head

While the prayers have been said

All the love thats been bled

Its just a kiss for the dead

In your world of constant dreams

A lifeless body with its frozen stare

People cry and pray for you to waken

All this pain you cannot bear

Wishing someone would pull the plug

All you do is shed a tear

No feelings

This world of sleeping, continue dreaming

To see the light now, in endless night now

Could cleanse this chaos from my mind

Lifeless body, frozen stare

In a world of constant dreams

Lifeless body, frozen stare

It's a different kind of sleep

No feelings

No feelingsback to top
LB. Of Cure
You see my life is rather simple

I'm just another face

And all your textbooks

All you know

Will soon construct the case

Warped emotions like a river

Everywhere a bend

And what we cannot hold together

We try to keep within

Listen doctor you cannot help me

The cure that's in a jar

All the needless all the pills

I think its gone too far

Now the pain is really blinding

I'm crawling up the wall

Try to hold on

Try to stop it

I think I've lost it all

Can't you see just where the troubles

All are in my head

Iron bars that keep me safe

While strapped here on this bed

You've poked and probed and podded me

So often times I've cried

Now I pray on bended knee

God just let me die

Count the ceiling tiles above

As you wheel me down the hall

Another treatment once a week

I'm losing all recallback to top
Faster Than Life
Hear the sounding, feel the pounding

Pain is coming, you don't know where

Blood is thick, you're feeling sick

Live with the choices you have made

Hard as stone it must be so

In a systematic life of lies

Flight or fight, run or die

You can't stand to even try

Rip it open, no more hoping

Time for you to rise and shine

I control the names I hold

But I can't fit into your mold

I know that I'm stronger than you are

In a world where nothing is faster than life

Search for answers, even after

Truth is whats upon your mind

On your face, its left no trace

Can't you read between the lines

Brand new day to do your crime

Pay your debt without a dime

Left unspoken, tales are broken

Carve a smile upon your face

Hear the phone, it's just a drone

No one hears your lonely moan

I can't change the world I see

But i can change the world in me

Now you know that the dying is easy

But its harder just staying alive

There are parts of the heart that are harder

Than the race that we run

Is faster than lifeback to top
All Your Sorrows
Times like these to people please

Fables spread like some disease

New age gods like old facades

Write a book

You'll like the odds

Inventing gods

Old facades

Take apart human heart you will start

Through the doorway of all your sorrows

Beginning to pull you away

In the night the sometimes light

The seasons which run out of time

When I press this game of chess

I always end with something less

You've made a mess

Of your Sunday best

In search of the answers, what never should be

Laughter erupts from primordial sea

Standing there naked with bended knee

All of your works face eternity

So though I play the same each day

When faced with pain I often pray

Take my hand you'll understand

The place we go is no-mans landback to top
They Signed in Blood
We will not follow Rome

The twisting of our faith

With the hand of God

You wrote the new light

The queen has decreed

You must believe like me

So it is written so it shall be

So it shall be

So the list was captured

And it's time for us to die

Following their orders

To enforce the lie

Village by village

Township by town

Hung drawn and quartered

Some where slowly drowned

They signed in blood

Proclaimed their faith

They signed in blood

And sealed their fate

Cause if your gonna die, die for what you believe in

There' s more to this world than meets the eye

The riders are coming the hoofbeats are thumping

The spectre of death leads the way

The queen has decreed the spiritual seed

Will be crushed out this day

And those who have signed be killed by the blind

The soldiers who'll slay

Thge names are above still written in blood

Are there to this dayback to top
Toys in the Attic
[S. Tyler / J. Perry]
[Aerosmith Cover]back to top
Sand Kings
In a holy war from these shores

Where lands are hot and dry

Nations forged by gods own hand

These kingdoms in the sand

A billion dollars everyday

The un-people pay

Political shemes and the war machines

Its a news media scene

Still Gods children die

Under blackend sky

Media man with his soul in his hand

He reasons this is wrong

With his Rolex watch and his white painted yacht

Does he even give a damn

Those who do then make the rules

And say that we must change

We fight for oil the new age spoil

Making all these chainsback to top
