Past Our Prime
Pulverized and cauterized.
Can't find the strength to close my eyes.
I'm disenchanted with your hate,
and singled-out by your lies.
Forgotten in the moment [doesn't mean it'll last]
Hidden in plain sight [whats done is done, it's in the past]
Crying out my lament [too late to let it go]
Frightened by the darkest night [you will never know]
Tears,
fall done to the ground.
Push,
and pull my soul around.
Too,
late, never to be found.
Hate,
my last breath and dying sound.
Good-bye, callous pain [leaving till the end]
Gone forever more [you'll just have to pretend]
Found out can never gain [wounded past the ending time]
Washing up upon the shore [out and past the grateful prime]
Pulverized and cauterized.
I take the time to close your eyes.
It's impossible to change fate,
as you found out with your life.
Tears,
fall done to the ground.
Push,
and pull my soul around.
Too,
late, never to be found.
Hate,
my last breath and dying sound.

Die Young and Save Yourself
Stuck inside my thoughts.
They say I can never be the same.
Not provided with the right parts,
they'll come in 4-6 weeks.
I'm gonna leap right off this cliff.
Into the hidden heights above.
You're not gonna take me alive,
I'll die young to save myself.
Well, you're never gonna like me.
Can't say that I really give a shit.
Give a cheer for the man with the gun,
pray not to be in his sights.
Full of menthol and expired meds,
won't admit I'm in over my head.
Nothing can stop me, not this time.
Won't die until I'm done.
I'm gonna leap right off this cliff.
Into the hidden heights above.
You're not gonna take me alive,
I'll die young to save myself.
All I've got is lost to me.
Taken from me in my sleep.
Dreams are odd, don't you see?
Promise me that you won't weep.

As the Years Go By
Sweat and blood fall from my eyes,
and I cannot understand the reason why.
Come by my window in the dark of night,
and make your leave by dawns own light.
The years have passed, count them down.
Half a decade, full of tears of frustration.
Years go by, and throw us around.
Mixed with depression and streaks of elation,
I just wish that you would come home.
I still wait with the porchlight burning,
heart in hand, waiting for you to return.
Even as time passes, I find I am still learning
that there is nothing worse than an empty yearn,
I just wish you would come home.
Life passes me by,
only the night to hear me cry.
Even as I crawl to my tomb,
still I lie and say
that you will come home.
If I had the will to bring you back to me,
I couldn't do it without knowing perfectly,
that you wanted to, and that could finally see
I'm all you could ever want. I cry soundlessly,
I just want you to come home.
I can't believe I've been wasting my time,
it's been centuries since I've felt your love.

Lost Cause
Kept away from shining light,
hidding from the gracious fight.
Not everything will be all right,
even when we're past the night.
I scream out towards the waking dawn,
and try to find that which is lost.
Everything I love is gone,
because I failed to pay the cost.
Lost to sight and through the day,
coated in a melting frost.
You have taken all away,
love and pain both are tossed.
You can't hide from the light,
shadows will come to lose their might.
Hold it down and hold it tight,
it proves to be the rarest sight.
From out to in, and in to out.
I've stuck inside a weeping gloom.
Heard from darkness is my shout,
I'm stuck inside the demon's room.
Caught in lies and kept in fear,
mired in a pool of doubt.
Even when you can get near,
I doubt that you can get me out.
You cannot save me from my plight.
I flail about and try to bite.
We never can get past our fright.
Screaming noise will come out wh

Apocoliptic News-Flash
Murder murder, set me free.
K-I-L-L-I-N-G
Chaos Chaos, can't you see?
This disorder is killing me...
Freedom of will, don't give a fuck.
Mired in decisions and horrible luck.
Everyone flies about in the world,
trying their damndest but still getting stuck.
It's time to come out as the wave of now,
we are the reason, you are the how.
Created by deceit and dirty lies,
and it's about time for you to realize...
...the reason...
Pick it up and throw it down,
spin it up and spin it around.
Circles of hatred and circles of trust,
all is gone in a shower of dust.
It's time to come out as the wave of now,
we are the reason, you are the how.
Created by deceit and dirty lies,
and it's about time for you to realize...
Wishing well in darkest sea,
F-I-L-L-I-N-G,
to the brim with the lost and found,
razing crops and salting ground.

What's Love?
Love is your smell upon my sheets.
Love is you beggin' on your knees.
Love is the way we talk a lot.
Love is the way we share some pot.
Love is the look upon your face.
Love is your naked grace.
Love is the way you show up, unanounced,
around midnight at my place.
I can't remember time without you.
No amout of praise is undo.
I know that the moment you leave,
is when my life is through.
Love is the way you play around.
Love is you pushin' me on the ground.
Love is the way you punch my arm,
and I pretend you cause some harm.
Love is the guiet times.
Love is tequila with a lime.
Love is your room without a light,
and how we stumble in the night.
I can't remember time without you.
No amout of praise is undo.
I know that the moment you leave,
is when my life is through.
Love is when you're here,
and how you share your fears.
Love is how I hold you tight,
me leaving with a bite,
and how you're not gonna fight.
I can't remember time without you.
No amout of praise is undo.

N.U.S
We've come to the crux,
the core of the problem.
Just because we suck,
doesn't mean we've lost 'em.
Hit the bottom, can't go any lower.
Now we can start to build anew.
We got no control, and too much power.
We can't fit in the other show.
Nation under suspision,
you just need to listen.
Put away your all of your fear,
it's about time to switch gears.
Killing the child, and raping the earth.
Taking anything we can find of worth.
Conspiracies abound, lies in the air.
You are the beast, and we are the lair.
Differential stocks, meaningless gold.
But now we're caught in our own choke-hold.
Let it all go, while you still can.
Before it's all reduced to sand.
Nation under suspision,
you just need to listen.
Put away your all of your fear,
it's about time to switch gears.
Put away the gun.
Sit, my wayward son.
Share with all.
For if you should fall,
you need a net.
Not a fighter jet.

Change For The Day
...we can see now...
...we can see now...
I,
don't need to say
all the things that I may,
it's too late for debate,
I,
have sorrow for tomorrow,
for all the things I cannot do,
just to try to get to you.
We,
need to change the way.
The way that we deal with things,
and all the trouble that it brings.
Change for the day.
It's not going to be too late.
Because, we have the chance.
To alter time and save our plans.
I,
just hope I'm not too far gone.
To try to change the song,
and hope it will go on.
You,
I hope you'll see this through.
I hope that your love is strong,
and that you're not wrong.
We,
we just can't stay the same.
Together now or not again,
not even to stay as friends.
Change for the day.
It's not going to be too late.
Because, we have the chance.
To alter time and save our plans.
Change forever more.
We might end up as broken poor.
Can't dine on love, all by itself.
If nothing else, then this'll help.

There's A Filth In Me
There's a filth in me.
Seeking out my proper soul,
Kept in darkness, kept in light.
Never getting to be whole.
The question that is a pain,
who is the one that is insane?
I find that it does cause in us
a way to know where to go.
Crept in through your window screen,
letting out what should be seen.
You were here, but now I'm not,
I fail to know how I should be.
...because...
There's a filth in me.
Seeking out my proper soul.
Kept in darkness, kept in light.
Never letting me be whole.
...I found out...
There's a filth in me.
Seeking out my proper soul.
Kept in darkness, kept in light.
Never letting me be whole.
I've got another question to ask,
if you'll let it through.
I've found out the reason,
from you know who.
It never fails,
to amaze.
Who's really mad,
in these few days?
...I live with the truth...
There's a filth in me.
Creeping closer than you know.
Kept inside, away from air.
It's coming to be time to let it show.

Hovel Of Heartbreak
I have got the need to set it free, but
though my heart is set against it. You could
never see the way I am, tightly shut
to me. Could not see, even if you would.
Heavily sedated thoughts come quickly.
I cannot stop my paranoia now.
Delusions come, and they will not let me
rest, but you cannot begin to know how.
Parting may be such sweet sorrow, but it
cannot be sweet if such taste is quite tart.
Delicate strings of stricken cords can hit
the hidden soul's core, causing us to part.
Leave me if you wish, but, please, do take care
of my heart. It follows you everywhere.

Transitional Statements
Given in to spoken fears,
Change your mind, and switch your gears.
Nothing I like is to be said,
Soon enough, you will be dead.
Unable to dam the horrid flow.
Hidden fluids drip and slow.
Manic laughter of the lost.
Bridges burned and bridges crossed.
Get up, get down,
Do it fast and do it now.
Impatient is the ruling tide.
Bleeding wounds opened wide.
To use it now is to find
That noone did ever mind.
Slipping in treasured trash.
Falling up and falling fast.
Life is but a state of sleep.
Noone ever got that deep.
It will go into the past,
Making you dream unto the last.
Get up, get down,
Do it fast and do it now.
Impatient is the ruling tide.
Bleeding wounds opened wide.
Wake up [NOW]
Fuck up [NOW]
Fed up [NOW]
Give up [NOW]

Someone Once Special
Falling deeply into grace.
It's getting hard to hide.
Once again, you've set the pace.
And I'm unable to keep stride.
Justice left behind in haste.
Rumor's death is not that grand.
It's all that we have to waste,
but not going how we planned.
Someone once special.
It's what you are to me.
Our lives are now less full,
Even though we both are free.
I heard you cry my name,
Retched distince of the night.
It can never be the same.
Past the time for freedom's flight.
Seperation of our lives.
Losing all we thought was lost.
We've both forgotten the lie.
Getting time to pay the cost
of that forgotten ride.
Someone once special.
It's what you are to me.
Our lives are now less full,
Even though we both are free.
Someone once special,
Say it thrice and then you'll see.
Love that I now call dull,
Fly away and let me be.

Happy Mother's Day
Given life, given grace.
Given looks of soft-spun lace.
Mind of steel and heart of gold.
My love for you will always hold.
Anger comes and anger goes.
We hit our highs and we hit our lows.
Things happen that are hard to stop.
Like the two times I've seen the cops.
I was away, but now I'm back.
I'm ready to help take up the slack.
Even the strongest can use a guard.
I promise to work upon the yard.
Sometimes I think you a fool.
I promise to finish school.
I know that you are the best.
You probably need a bit more rest.
The best mother in all the nation.
You need a hell of a vacation.
Best mom in all the lands.
I'm offering a helping hand.
If you ever need it, please do call.
If I have it, you can have it all.
Help, love, a place to stay, even a loan.
If you need it you have it, so say the gnome.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I love you.

Good Night
I can't regain my losses. I can't get back what I've lost. The scars cover my arms, and make me seem wrong. I have lost everything.
I won't stop. There's nothing to lose, and nothing to gain.
Stop in the heat of the moment.
Give into the final lament.
A knife? (ha) Who needs that shit?
I snap your neck before you get in a hit.
Kamakaze life style, nothing can last.
I get my jollies nice and fast.
Without a single look back,
Bodies in a single stack.
Can't you see past the lie?
Guess not, it's all mine.
Grab the rope and sanp it tight.
Don't forget to turn off the light.
Goddamn the consequenses.
Forget the hugs and all the kisses.
Jump you in a dark street.
Spoon torture and burned feet.
Water closes over my face.
Life is just a fucking race,
To see who gets to the end first,
This is the absolute worst.
Bugs splattered on the screen.
People just think that I am mean.
They have nothing that I want to spare.
In the end, I do not care.
Can't you see past the lie?
Guess not, it's all mine.

Third Eye Blinded
See it.
See it.
See it.
AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!
I've come too far. (To see the end)
I've done too much. (To give in now)
I've seen too much. (To cover my eyes)
I won't give up. (Not blind to your lies)
No one can find me now.
Don't even think to ask how.
You won't like the awnser you get.
Piss off, you piece of shit.
I'm coming off the last street.
Taking time to kick your feet.
My blade is buried to its hilt,
And now your life will start to wilt.
Twist the knife, it'll be all right.
Lost my sight, won't stop the fight.
Use my might, can't find the light.
It's not too tight, I will not fright.
I'm not staying to watch the show.
Blow's coming in far too low.
Free from the mud and gone through the gate,
the only thing left to me is hate.
Stop the love, stop the fun.
Start the war, pass the gun.
I've nothing left for me to defend.
I sit to smoke, wait for the end.
I can't compete, I have hate to greet.
Stop my feet, an apocolypse to meet.
So take a seat, get out of the kitchen
if you can't stand

Literature
In the Grip of Night-Terror
Wake up from this sudden, suffocating dream,
Arouse the dreamer from the harlequin revelry,
And wonder through quiet tears.
Perversion of purity is the inverse of lies
For dreamers' eyes are a rarity anymore
Yet even so they are the cure to all pain within realm.
I wish there was a way for me to find some redemption,
But oh my soul seems shattered beyond repair;
Nothing in the eyes of those who stare down on me.
Dreamers should not give birth to nightmares as they sleep,
Yet demons come from rents in the soul, bringing all in fear,
And so now I wonder quietly where they got to be so bold.

Nameless
You don't understand.
Whispering soft, melodic graces.
Take my hand.
Lift me from this pit.
There are some things only love can erase.
Even then they leave an ugly smudge.
Sip wine, watching the moon take its place.
We'll stay up all night just to see the sun raise again.
It's a beautiful cycle.
Unchanging, never failing, hold it close.
Enjoy it most, even though it's simple.
I try to give you what you want.
That's what people who love each other do.
Viciously, you break from gratitiude, demanding more.
As for your feelings, I haven't a clue.
Just another slow song playing.
All of this about romance.
Pledges of love--all an act, or feelings too?
Stand with me and we'll dance.
You don't have to be a mindreader to understand.
Quiet, listen to the birds.
Just enjoy this company.
Some things are better without words.
