. . .


It was yesterday you told me you loved me.
But today I learned you found someone else,
And everything was fake.
When I get back home, I know that you'll be gone.
And all the things I've given you are left behind;
I'll put them in a box.
And today I found out you moved in with him.
A one-bedroom apartment down the road
from the place we first met.
When I get back home I know that you'll be gone.
With all the memories of me you had
locked here in this box.
And I'll start to think of everything we had.
I was always there for you,
I asked for nothing in return, I swear.
I'll believe, you'll make you see.
You were there with someone else.
See my pain, I'll believe you were there with him.
I don't want to see your face again, not like this.
I don't have to see you in this place.
I don't want to see your face again.
I will not be ashamed not now.
This time I won't be ashamed of it.
This time I won't make it change myself.
This time I will make myself believe.
My heart, it won't break this time, won't be left behind,
I won't be so shy; I won't let you win this time.



. . .


Confessor
Of the tragedies in man
Lurking in the core of us all
The last dying call for the everlost
Brief encounters, bleeding pain
Lepers coiled neath the trees
Dying men in bewildered soliloquys
Perversions bloom round the bend
Seekers, lost in their quest
Ghosts of friends frolic
under the waning moon
It is the year of death
Wielding his instruments
Stealth sovereign reaper
Touching us with ease
Infecting the roots in an instant
Burning crop of disease
I am just a spectator
An advocate documenting the loss
Fluttering with conceit
This doesn't concern me yet
Still far from the knell
Taunting their bereavement
Mod round the dead
Point fingers at the details
Probing vomits for more
Caight in unbridled suspense
We have all lost it now
Catching the flakes of dismay
Born the travesty of man
Regular pulse midst pandemonium
You're plucked to the mass
Parched with thirst for the wicked
Sick liaisons raised this monumental mark
The sun sets forever over Blackwater park

. . .


Marauder
Staining the soil, Midst of stillness
Beloved fraternity to an end
Red eyes probe the scene
All the same
Stilted for the beholder
Depravity from the core
Handcarved death in stoneladen aisles

I hide the scars from my past
Yet they sense my (mute) dirge
This is when it all falls apart
White hands grasping for straws

Sly smile, Poisoned glare behind
Undisguised manmade nova
Mute cry, Don't dare to tread
Searing beams tracking you down

Adoring what never has been
Some will bring with them all they have seen

Searching my way to perplexion
The gleam of her eyes
In that moment she knew

Thought I could not leave this place
On this imminent day
As I've reached the final dawn
To what's gone astray
What would they care if I did stay
No-one would know
What would they care if I did stay
No-one should know

Thought I could not leave this place
On this imminent day
As I've reached the final dawn
To what's gone astray
What would they care if I did stay
No-one would know
What would they care if I did stay
No-one should know

Still brooding, Soothing clam
That rigid, Twisted face
Blank godhead, Tear my name
Lost virtue, Frantic lust

Sly smile, Poisoned glare behind
Undisguised manmade nova
Mute cry, Don't dare to tread
Searing beams tracking you down

Adoring what never has been
Some will bring with them all they have seen

Searching my way to perplexion
In crumbling faith I saw her
Bearing her pain in the wilderness
The gleam of her eyes
In that moment she knew

. . .


This took my fate
Giving in, to your lips, to your eyes
I should have known it would come back to haunt me

Crooked smile
A reflection in your eyes, that shows
My weakness for your beautiful mistakes
Something that I know you've seen before
I'm not the first
Set the trap, I'm falling for it every time

I can't believe, everyone knew from the start
This would come back to haunt me
I can't stand to see you now
How could I ever trust you

I'll take it back to the streets
I'll start again
I'll never look back
I'll never look back, back

How do you feel
I bet you don't feel anything
Don't have a heart attack
Don't have a heart attack
But I won't stop you

Flying high, razor blades make perfect lines
On just about anything you want
Broken pores spill out
Everything you want to say
It shows my weakness for

Falling in love with
My wallowing despair that shines in black
It consumes me
I'll take it back
I'll build it back to what it was

I can't believe, everyone knew from the start
This would come back to haunt me
I can't stand to see you now
How could I ever trust you

I'll take it back to the streets
I'll start again
I'll never look back
I'll never look back, back

How do you feel
I bet you don't feel anything
Don't have a heart attack
Don't have a heart attack
But I won't stop you

Everyone knew from the start
This would come back to haunt me
I can't stand to see you now
How could I ever trust you

Cut me out, of your life
Like it's nothing
(Like I'm nothing)
Make believe, you can love
That it's better
(That you're better)

Part of me is gone
You've taken (you've taken)
You've taken (you've taken)

Part of me is gone
You've taken (you've taken)
Pieces from me

I'll take it back to the streets
I'll start again
I'll never look back
I'll never look back, back

How do you feel
I bet you don't feel anything
Don't have a heart attack
Don't have a heart attack
But I won't stop you

You won't stop
You'll never change

You won't stop
You'll never change

. . .


Lost, Here is nowhere
Searching home still
Turning past me, all are gone
Time is now
The omen showed, Took me away
Preparations are done, This can't last
The mere reflection brought disgust
No ordeal to conquer, This firm slit
It sheds upon the floor, Dripping into a pool
Grant me sleep, Take me under
Like the wings of a dove, Folding around
I fade into this tender care



. . .


Blame it on the weather
But I'm a mess
And this February darkness, has me hating everyone
And I know I give you comfort, but this trouble makes me sick
And the longer I lay here, I know it's harder to get up without you

Lose another day here
Lose another year here
I'm with you

Find me something out there, that's making sense
And it's just another trend carefully hidden in your dress
And the cycles neverending, and the fashions overdone
And the further that I run away, the further I'll come back to shelter

Lose another day here
Lose another year here
I'm with you

You are the fire, on my apartment floor
Sixteen stories, I'd rather burn then fall
It isn't fate, that took us all by storm
It's just the turn of a card

Lose another day here
Lose another year here
I'm with you

You are the fire, on my apartment floor
Sixteen stories, I'd rather burn then fall
It isn't fate, that took us all by storm
It's just the turn of a card

Goodbye, old friend
Goodbye, goodnight
I'll move on
You'll call it fate, I'll call it karma
We had our time, it was fun
While it lasted

I'll look back, with honor, and no regrets
I won't be mad, won't feel bad
These memories will never leave me
Don't be sad
Cause life goes on, life goes on
It's getting too late
Tomorrow is here

. . .


When I was a little boy I used to wonder
Just how old you'd have to be to feel good
Now I've seen a thousand girls but I still wonder
Cause they just don't make sense to me
God knows I've tried

I've tried to be the unpredictable one
I've tried to be the friend that they could rely on
I've still got none
Got nothing at all

And so I fall into the open
Just singing out your name
And when I'm done, crashed and maimed
I hope that's where you'll find me

You know that if it's up to me I'll still be holding
My own hand the day I die
So please release me now

I've tried to be the mean mysterious one
I've tried to be the sweetest candy you'd suck on
I've still got none
Got nothing at all

And so I fall into the open
Just singing out your name
And when I'm done, crashed and maimed
I hope that's where you'll find me

And it's a good day for being found
Just crawling in the dirt with my head underground
And it's a good day for you to come
Collecting all the pieces of the damage done

And after all the bandages are gone
I hope you'll find a favorite part you can work on
Cause I've got none
Got nothing at all

And so I fall into the open
Just singing out your name
And when I'm done, crashed and maimed
I hope that's where you'll find me

. . .


In the name of desperation
I call your name
A lamentation I sigh
Again and again

Spiritual eclipse
The gateways are closed for me to seek

The night...
A veil of stars, watching
My shadow is born from light
The light of the eye, in darkness

Over troubled waters memories soar
Endlessly, searching night and day
The moonlight caresses a lonely hill
With the calmness of a whisper

I wear a naked soul
A blank face in the streaming water
It is cold in here
Frost scar my coat with dust

Eyes attach to your mute portrait
We spoke only through thoughts
Together we gazed, awaited
Hours brought thirst and the rising sun

Sunbirds leave their dark recesses
Shadows glid the archways

Do not turn your face towards me
Confronting me with my lonliness
You are in a forest unknown
The secret orchard
And your voice is vast and achromatic
But still so precious

Lullaby of the crescent moon took you
Mesmerized, its kaleidoscopic face
Granted you a hollow stare
Another soul within the divine herd

I have kept it
The amaranth symbol
Hiddin inside the golden shrine
Until we rejoice in the meadow
Of the end
When we both walk the shadows
It will set ablaze and vanish
Black rose immortal

It is getting dark again
Dusk shuffle across the fields
The evening trees moan as if they knew
At night I always dream of you



. . .


There is love and there is not
There are two bullets, but there's no shot
It's so eventful, still so wrong
The road we walk along

There are smiles and there are not
Yours are false compared to the one I've got
I can be wrong about it because it's all seen
From where I sit

An ocean and a tear
I can't see land from here
There are a thousand ships at sea
From one you can see me

There's one me and there's one you
Oh, none of us is having a clue
And no one lights the fire
It burns down to be desire

There's one problem I cannot see
Maybe there's a wall and it’s built by me
I have torn it down before
Does this one take even more?

An ocean and a tear
I can't see land from here
There are a thousand ships at sea
From one you can see me

I better change behaviour, but not today
I better leave this life that I’m doing ok
But there is no one I want to love
Well there is no one I want to love

An ocean and a tear
I can't see land from here
There are a thousand ships at sea
From one you can see me

There's one problem I cannot see
Maybe there's a wall of course built by me
I have torn it down before
Does this one take even more?

There are smiles and there are not
Yours are false compared to the one I've got
I can be wrong about it because it's all seen
From where I sit
Because it’s all seen from where I sit
Because it’s all seen from where I sit

. . .


When I was a little boy I used to wonder

Now I've seen a thousand girls but I still wonder
