LYRICS :Nuclear Daydream



You can hold your needle 
You can point your gun
You can shoot and kill me
Or you could let me run

But I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone

If there's a plan then tell me
If you know who you are
A princess or a mummy
A flower or a scar

So I don't have to cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone
Are now gone

What's it like to lose control?
Are you even here at all?

This is a nuclear daydream
It's my atomic bomb
I already lost my passage
I already lost our home

So I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone

There's only dreams and numbers 
And wishes left unsaid
In all the burning letters
Underneath our bed

Saying I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone
Are now gone
Are now gone
Are now gone

LYRICS : Don't Give Up On People


Given one more chance 
One more thing to say
I made a very big mistake
Followed by a thousand days

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

Satellites and moonbeams
Signal dreams to play
Last time I saw you
Was in the sunless time of day

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

LYRICS : Don't Tell Your Eyes



Don't tell your eyes 
Don't tell your eyes
Your eyes are mine

Don't tell your mind 
Don't tell your mind
Your mind is mine

Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know
Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know

Don't tell your dream 
Don't tell your dream
Your dream is mine

Don't tell your sex
Don't tell your sex
Your sex is mine

Jesus loves you more than you know 
More than you know (4x) 


LYRICS : When I Was Running Out Of Time



When I was running out of time 
I turned it into a dream 
And you went drifting into my mind 
Things ain't the way that they seem 
I turn you into a dream 
And make it all go away 
You know your hair looks different when you wear it that way 
You've got a painted face and a body made of clay 
You are my super star 

They will fill you with big ideas 
They'll hang your heart in the sky 
I know you want to save the world 
How long have you been that high 
How long have you been that high 
And did you make it all go away 
You know your eyes look different when you look the other way 
You've got a cheating heart bleeding emeralds everyday 
You are a shooting star 

Things ain't the same as when we was young 
They hung us from shooting stars 
Let's tell the world we're doing fine 
I know how lucky we are 
I know how lucky we are 
To make it all go away 
You know this world is topsy-turvy in days like today 
We got a million souls looking for a place to stay 
Each one a shooting star 


LYRICS : Automatic Situation



Automatic who you blame 
Like a moth into a flame 
Burn your wings and scars to show
Always gone before you go 

It's all down from here 
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepare 
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation) 

Damaged brain and twisted heart 
Little thief who was never caught 
Wanna give you what she earns 
Souvenirs of the wings she burns 

It's all down from here
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepared
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation) 

It's all down from here
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepared
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation) 


LYRICS : You Are Free


Time is moving on 
You and me
You and me
Suffering is gone
You are free
You are free

I know I let you down
Those days are over now

I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was

Time is moving on 
You and me
You and me
Suffering is gone
You are free
You are free

I know I let you down
Those days are over now

I'm no longer who I was
No longer who you thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who you thought I was

I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who you thought I was
I'm no longer who I was
No longer who I thought I was

I'm not afraid of nothing
I'm not afraid of anyone
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid

Time is moving on 
You and me
You and me
Suffering is done
Let it be
Let it be

When you feel you're strong
You are free
You are free


 

LYRICS : Electrical Storm


How do you live cold? 
Before you're young
You're so old

You're born and then you die
You're born and then you die
And you are born

Past the city and the thieves 
Past the wolverines and trees
Until the sunrise
In the electrical storm

Last night with you 
When we turned blue 
I saw right through 
When we turned blue 

I can see you now 
You are me 
Anyhow

You're born and then you die 
You're born and then you die 
And you are born 

Past the city and the thieves
Past the wolverines and trees
Until the sunrise
In the electrical storm

In the sunrise 
In the sunrise
And we are born 
In the electrical storm

In the sunrise 
In the sunrise
And we are born
In the electrical storm

Last night with you 
When we turned blue 
Were you untrue? 
When we turned blue 
When we turned blue 


LYRICS : Slide Away


No matter what you want 
Do or say
I hope you make it to 
Brighter days
If you're a junkie heart 
Be reborn
And every diamond back
Leave your home

If they don't get to you
Get to me
We're gonna walk a path
Ever free
And stare into the sun
Till we're blind
Destroying every thought
In our mind

What you say counts
What you say counts
Till you fall out
Black
As the night you crashed apart 
Till every piece was gone

No matter where you live
Where you've been
You'll find an open road 
And a friend
If you're a peaceful soul
Peace will come
So don't you hide away
What you've done

What you say counts
What you say counts
Till you fall out
Black
As the night you crashed apart 
Till every piece was gone

Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you

Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you

Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
Now I want you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you 

Slide away 


LYRICS : Enough To Get Away



What's the difference from a Saturday night 
Where the light spreads dark around the drunk hearts
In their headless hallways where bodies are put on the market place 
To happiness endlessly taking pills 
With the young going down
I see nothing, I'm nowhere 
I know what I've found 
Must be in paradise

Next year we will live in the country 
With our money, by day the sky builds 
Doing our laundry, inventing us in random machines
Getting our religion and sex on the TV
Assumptions made simply to get away
Everyone old is already with me
On tiny decks enjoying midsummer weather and friendly company
And in their picture frames there you and I will be 
Knowing what we've found

Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found 
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away

Bright drops of blood so my thoughts are
I turn to lie down but sleep stays far 
I'm just an echo of the song going through my head
The light it hides the ghost
But I'm the one who's dead 
And I think of who you be 
When you're here with me 
Maybe it's a spiritual disease 
Sliding through shoots of oblivion into infinity 
Back into our maker's hands 
No more rain or controversy 
Knowing what we've found 

Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found 
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away 



LYRICS : Black Lexus


Your black Lexus has 
Two hundred thousand miles
Underneath the missing roads

You don't know where you're going
Almost anytime
Things lost just lighten up your load 

Maybe you're headin' out 
To LA
See if they'll put you in a show

First you'll check with the stars
Read both your sign and mine 
In the back of the New York Post

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
And you can't find her
You can't find her
Every day you feel a little curse

Now your car's been towed
You misread the sign
Something left to do
Must have slipped your mind

Got no money left
Guess you'll stick around
And anyway the stars
Said not to go right now 

But you can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
And you can't find her
You can't find her
Every day you look a little worse

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
You can't find her
You can't find her
Every day you feel a little curse

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
You can't find her
You can't find her
Every day you feel a little curse 



LYRICS : Too Much To Hide



The needle says she'll tell you when she's through 
No sense now in trying to believe in you

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

There's some you know you follow into doom
By yourself and in an empty room

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone 
(So far, oh)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far, oh)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far away)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far away)

I'm down here and walking with you still
And part of me I guess always will

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

Be here now

I Donated Myself To The Mexican Army (Studio Version with Gomez)



The song was released on a Groundwork cd and performed by Joseph, Ben Ottewell, Ian Ball, Olly Peacock, Graham Pattison, Angeline.

"Gomez paid Arthur a visit to the LA hotel he was staying at and Arthur later invited the band to join him the recording studio. 

"The music felt like it was infected by some spirit or something," confesses Arthur with his feet propped up on the glass table that sits in front of him. 

"Ben played some great guitar and Ian and Ben sang and Olly played drums and it was amazing," continues Arthur. "I swear that was like some of the best music I've ever been involved in making because they're just so talented. It was (also) easy we did it in just two hours."

Arthur hopes optimistically "I Donated Myself To The Mexican Army," the track spawned from their musical collaboration will be released at some point. "Maybe five years from now. Long after you're not interested anymore."

LYRICS : Fading



Oh 
Would you erase me? 
No 
I know you tried ten times or more 
But I just kept walking through your door 

Are we remaining 
Since I've no faith in your cure 
Since we have been fading 
My eyes are clear, nothing is pure 

The sin keeps on speaking 
Oh 
Clean up your thinking 
No 
I don't believe you anymore 
But I like you better than before 

Are we remaining 
Since I've no faith in your cure 
Since we have been fading 
My eyes are clear, nothing is pure

LYRICS : Summer Plans


We made summer plans
To lean on St. Christopher 
And eat from my baby's empty hands 
We lost the will to live 
Find something unforgivable 
And learn to forgive 

I'm not happier here 
Most of the time 
Will you follow me still 
Though I am blind 

Have you sung winter's song 
Living in fantasy
Where you belong 
Have you touched a sacred heart 
On top of the misery 
That rips you apart 

Are you happier here 
Most of the time 
Would I follow you still 
Most of the time 

Are you happier here 
Most of the time 
I guess I would I follow you still 
Though you are blind


LYRICS : I Am The Mississipi



Along the edge of the Mississippi
A thousand hearts bleed
My heart looking for something to execute
In the Mississippi
Up against this current
My heart so alive
Submerged in the airless dark
Who could hold me here?
Who could hold me down?
Sitting on the edge
Of the Mississippi
Rivers of slaves
Rivers of bones
I have been down her
Across generations
A lifetime ago I was sold amongst thieves
I don't ignore the cries
I hear them
I am conscious along the Mississippi
Hear the footsteps of ghosts
Hear them scream
Behind me
I see their boats sink
But I am very alive
She draws me to her breath
She whispers with her voice
Her comfort
All I want or need
Alone on a Saturday night
Me… and the Mississippi
Two rivers flowing together
Flowing eternal
A river of darkness
A river of light
Blend as one
Together against the impossible
Ends we face
Our lunatic charm
She can never claim me
Nor I her
We flow together eternal
We flow together as one
And I am the Mississippi 


LYRICS : It Takes A Lot To Live In The Moment



It takes a lot of time to live in the moment
To become a thing of no thing
To bleed into emptiness
And be sucked into the cosmos
To reverse aging
And be born again into the arms
Of mother sucking at life
And infinitely charged an infant 
It takes a lot of time to live in the moment
To believe without belief
To suffer without grief
To steal the riches without being a thief
By taking it all
The construct
The identity
The ego
And lighting it up with fluid and a match
And as it burns
Throw it to the cops of soul who catch
Arrest it and kick it back
Into the center of the sun
Burning out black hole teeth
Laughing and chewing the moment
It takes a lot of time to live in
As it takes a lot of time to live in the moment
Where dark is light
And blindness sight
And where wrong is right
And the day is night
And there is no more I, or you, or time
Or future
Or need to nickel and dime
Or skin
Or bones
Or thought of rhymes
Just the evil low-end buzz of consciousness fuzz
Blossoming rose to the nose of eternity eternal
And the vast never-was
Sucking all the fire from the old sun
And lighting up the new one
For the generations to come
Who have so much time to live in the moment
It takes a lot of time to live in the moment 


LYRICS : Humanity Fade



We are connected to the main frame
Connected to the wire
Connected to the human brain
Of roses and fire
We are connected to cyber space
Connected to death
The only thing we never feel
Is the weight of our breath
Out here in the country
With night coming on
Connected now to nothing
Like dogs in a storm
Apocalypse is coming
Here come the undead
Marching in chaos
Like the thoughts in yer head
We are connected to the main frame
With our souls plugged in
Our spirits are now digital
Like electrical sin
We are figments of the Internet
It’s hand reaching out
Bleeding through our eyes
And in the heart of our drought
The desert here is empty
Our cure is disease
Our god is on a screen
Our sky on its knees
The rain of pollution
The fog of ideas
There is no absolution
Just crocodile tears
Here comes the revolution
No army to beat
No big bomb exploding
Or cyanide to eat
Computer domination
A world without bounds
A soul in mutilation
Like the silence of sounds
Here come the revolution
Electronically made
The death of evolution
The humanity fade 



LYRICS : Kandinsky



The whole world shakes me down
The Holy Ghost in rags
I've been burning up this town
And flipping tiny bags
Zeus gave a blade, Apollo stuck him up
I committed to the fade
But then drank another cup
It's a dirty song that runs for your fingers and your chest
Trying to feel for bombs and guns
Or a heart without a vest
Bulletproof good or not
Wrecked the weekend coming now
I will see you at the spot
With my murdered sacred cow

Shadows are red inside
Shadows they dream in rainbows
Shadows cave in to fountains of color
When we close and avert our eyes
Shadows recognize our poverty

Kandinsky is in my room
So is Edgar Allan Poe
The shadows dream in color
And that is their final revenge
When we go under, it's nothing but art deco black and white
Andy Warhol submarines
Flying fish of the ages

Shadows are red inside
Shadows dream in rainbows
Shadows cave into fountains of color
When we close and avert our eyes
Shadows recognize our poverty

And even pray over us
With minds full of grey
And rapid eyes scanning the bottom of the ocean
In the middle of the day
Kandinsky is in my room
Smoking a brown cigarette
And I ignore him and read my orange book
Until suddenly he says 'hey'
And as I look up
He turns into a shadow
So that the cigarette falls
And the smoke rises slow

Filling the space where his body once was 
I'm filling the space where his body once was 




LYRICS : Follow



The way I fall
The way I follow you
Nowhere, nowhere

And I lost something
A long time ago
A long time ago
A long time ago

The way I fall
The way I follow you
Nowhere, no where

And I lost something
A long time ago
A long time ago
A long time ago

 

LYRICS : Touched



There is a twist in everything
Waking up at night with a headache in a penthouse
That doesn't belong to you
Waking up with no one but your own infringement on everything
And yeah, you're a celebration
A diamond ring
But sometimes it just doesn't mean a thing
You get up and have your coffee buy your canvas
Throw yourself against the wall
That in some strange instances becomes a sky
A vision or a tear, a kinda hallelujah dawn
This mess, this eternity of an existence
Is either a dull thud or an electric explosion
We all breathe in clouds of smoke
We see lights and then nothing at all
We all want peace as we rampage down streets of chaos
But in the distance, when I reopen my blinded eyes
When I conjure up the will to believe again
I know we are already home 

(Touched)

Me and my folks
Ocean waves against our feet
Can anyone be taught to walk on water?
The secrets are whispered in the ocean air
You blessed little children happy to be dancing together
Can you be so bold as to truly look into one another's eyes
To relax into each other
Some things don't have to be explained
You just feel
And automatically know we are here to heal
These wounds are deep
These wounds are eternal

(Touched)

We approach death like wounded warriors
Arms crossed
Head bandaged
We approach death when the wild call
Sings broken melodies to fractured ears
Sunlit shadows blend evil fruit motions
Which rise from the street and wreck torpedo hearts
Windmills spin eternally
Electric hearts beat endlessly
And the pulse of life surrenders to no one
Who am I?
I’m touched

(Touched) 




LYRICS : Free Freedom



I see you here 
Locked outside 
I want you in 
Come inside 
I've been lost 
A scattered ghost 
No kind being 
A shadow host 
You my guest 
I haunt you now 
You the best 
Still here somehow 
Love and light and sin again 
Our limitations 
Breathe us in 
And breathe us out 
Swallowed whole 
No salvation 
Found below 
Or in the head 
Or in the soul 
Wandering always 
Takes its toll 
London Paris New York you 
All the cities 
We been too 
And back and forth 
And here and there 
All to say 
I really care 
And see your moon 
And see your glow 
The way you walk 
And what you show 
And what you don't 
And what you hide 
Sometimes you're gone 
And still inside 

Give love 
To the clouds 
Let it rain 
On all the crowds 
Let it soak 
In everyone 
Let it choke 
Their need to run 
Be the freedom 
You want to see 
You want to feel 
You want to free 
Free the freedom 
Trapped for now 
Free the freedom 
And show me how 

Make believers 
In the sky 
In the earth 
Pass us by 
Mother father 
Slave and king 
All of us 
Should finally sing 
Freedom freedom 
All around 
Freedom freedom 
Falling down 
Freedom freedom 
Under love 
Freedom freedom 
Up above 
Freedom freedom 
Me and you 
Freedom freedom 
Red and blue 
White and black 
Yellow grey 
Take it all 
To give away 
Freedom in 
Freedom out 
In a whisper 
Freedom shout 
Freedom head 
Freedom soul 
Bury freedom 
In a hole 
Watch it grow 
Manifest 
Everyday 
You arrest 
Freedom locked 
In a cage 
Swallowed keys 
The turning page 
In the eyes 
The leper sage 
In the broom 
Sweeping rage 
Freedom need 
Freedom cure 
Give us dreams 
Make us pure 
Make us you 
In the sea 
Give us wealth 
Make us free 
Free the freedom 
That you'd be 
If you could 
Get yourself free 
Free the freedom 
That you'd be 
If you could 
Get yourself free 



LYRICS : Fractures


I float like an old piece of wood on the Hudson
I may have a purpose
But it's mysterious to me
I wait in dark corners for instruction
get on my bike
And peddle over bridges
And along rivers
And wind up
Back where I started
In moments of weakness or strength
I ask god for forgiveness
And guidance
And then I fall asleep and meet him somewhere
Along the fractures 
In those breaks
I go fishing
A tiny rod with a string and hook
I work into the cracks
With no idea what I want back
Standing on my heart
Like a world in turmoil
Alone with God
A vagrant
A figment
An idiot
With no thoughts or ideas
And then something tugs on the string
I keep floating
Down the river
Riding over bridges
Advancing the myth called surrender
All bones break
(Inspiration)
All skulls crack
(Gratitude)
All will turns cold
(Forgiveness)
In moments of strength or weakness
I ask for help
And then I sleep
And meet God
Along the fractures of my heart 




LYRICS : So Far From Free



Tell me how you woke up to your heart
Through the lines strung across your face
Beating' down the walls keeping us apart
And trying to fill all the empty space

You are
So far from free
So far from free
You are
So far from free
You are
So far from free

In the end this matter is extinct
So burn all that was said
In your tired head
Bleeding from the same wound when you seek
A faster way to heal
To bribe the sun to shine

You are
So far from free
You are
Far from free
So far from free 



LYRICS : You're Not The Only One



Darkness descends on everyone, eventually
Still you keep passing hyenas wearing idiot suits
Past reformers with holy pursuits
You're not the only one holding on to a kiss from yesterday
To a moment surrendered
When you were sure there was something more to say
And you're not the only one
With clothes tattered
And eyes that look sideways and beyond
To thoughts of where you once came from
And you're not the only one
That's dead from the beginning
Spinning a tribute to what could be
But you can't get happy through misery
And you're not the only one
You're not the only one
Down streets, no shadows ever go
Still you keep moving
Past shady cameras and artillery whores
You're not the only one
Against breaking skies and fall-away floors
You're not the only one warped and wasted
With the poison brought from yesterday
And you're not the only one drunk and holy
Aware of all that's come before
And what will come to stay
You're not the only one
In a slumber of booze and dreams
And even high ideals
But who are you?
Still no one, still a mark, still a seed

And who are you?
You're not the only one
And who are you?
You know you're not the only one
Who are you?
You're not the only one 


LYRICS : Redemption City



Redemption city
Is where I live
Redemption city
I got nothin to give
Bide my time
And find u to forgive
Redemption city
Is where I live

Redemption city
Is where I come from
Redemption city
The beat in every drum
Redemption city
The blood that's in my veins
Skyscrapers and sewers
And love that flows down drains

Redemption city
Buildings falling down
Redemption city
Skulls stuck in the ground
Redemption city
Night gives into dawn
As evil fills the streets
The love keeps moving on

Redemption city
I fell but now I'm free
Redemption city
In you there's no more me
Redemption city
I breathe in yer air as
Destruction and revolution are
Building everywhere

Redemption city
Sons and daughters save
Redemption city
Built in every grave
Redemption city
The light in every cave
Freeing every soldier
Every master now a slave

Redemption city
Morning paper trains
Redemption city
Nectar and the stains
Redemption city
Blood on every hand
The cold rain in each eye
Killing every man

Redemption city
No place left to park
Redemption city
Not safe after dark
Redemption city
The fire from each spark
Shooting from the blackness
Born from every heart

Redemption city
Blood runs thru the streets
Redemption city
Where saints drink wine with freaks
Redemption city
Salvations naked here
And Satans in the cold speaking with his fear

Redemption city
His fear is made of doves
Redemption city
Sobered up his buzz
Redemption city
Now Satan’s falling down
And the people come to stab him
And put him in the ground

Redemption city
He becomes the seed
Redemption city
Nothing left to need
Redemption city
No hunger left to feed
The miracles just blossom
When Satan is the seed

Redemption city
We are free again
Redemption city
The children and the men
Redemption city
The woman all come home
And love is all there is
And love is all that's known

LYRICS : Night Clothes



The sun is out
I got no shades
The moon in my pocket
I got it made
Riding my bike
For a free guitar
Sweating in leather
My eye is the scar
She scratched me awake
Must've been a bad dream
A drop of blood or a tear
And a kiss for a scream

Say a prayer for my sister
Drink my coffee down
The jukebox is blaring
An old fashioned sound
The street kids are walking
With books made of junk
With words drinking on them
Until they are drunk
Voices in echoes
Stir into noise
The soundtrack of chaos
Girls beating boys 

I'm in my nightclothes
Still from the night before
Too many layers
And I can't reach the floor
All the time floating
On a bike made of wings
Sweating and laughing
As my lost angel sings
Deep in hells kitchen
With hookers and saints
Workers of metal
And gypsies with paints
Spraying on people
On city brick walls
Who somehow can listen
When euphoria calls
The world is a flood
Of music and light
Of day bleeding backwards
In the folly of night
The city must be
Where gods like to hang
Their monkey hearts beat
Like drums in the rain 

Here in my city
I'm blessed and I'm cursed
Not nearly the best
But close to the worst
Blessed are the meek
The rodents
The slaves
For we are still close
To exploding the graves
To dance here with death
And music and light
Thru agony days
And the freedom of night 

I'm in my nightclothes
The coffee is gone
To move thru the veins
Of this old city's song
The laughter the music
The tears are the words
The melody suspended
Like wires and birds
Floating and changing
Resolved to be free
The light that's in you
Is in them and in me

 

LYRICS : No Surrender Comes For Free



Yer pupils are almost always pinned
Fly like you will the shape of the wind
Skating on ice at once thinning and thinned
You wait to fall thru to do it again
Yer eyes are like pins stabbing my neck
Vampire needs on trains that you wreck
Yer will like ghost or barely a speck
Play every game and load every deck
Yer pupils so small go high to the end
Internal worlds fall and dreams just descend
Disguised all the time an enemy's friend
Relationships die and never will mend
Under yer skull clouds of pure bliss
As you give in to the vampire kiss
A cut in yer heart appears on yer wrist
Giving to time the denial of this
Pills just dissolve in bellys of dust
And float to yer eyes emotion you trust
Like b dylan said life is sad and a bust
But to get by u will face it and face it u must
So all yer lies can't save you now
A selfish world that broke somehow
Over the moon u jump like a cow
As leaches of thoughts squirm under yer brow
Tricks licks kicks and dicks
All get bought and sold and mix
Words break bones like stones and sticks
As u run out of veins to fix
Shattered eyes still smiles wide
Under clouds you love to hide
You'd rather die than swallow pride
As walls build up and up inside
A cloudy demon with angel breath
Floating forward backward death
Nothing to gain and nothing left
Just the evidence of theft
From yerself u stole what's true
If it could work I'd do it too
Follow the lonely line of you
Until there's no way to come back thru
Bleeding eyes and holy toes
Blissful fingers where no one goes
The things you've done no one knows
But what you hide still always shows
Touching on epiphany
But no surrender comes for free
Follow you or follow me
No surrender comes for free
If they could see the things you see
No surrender comes for free
No surrender comes for free
Follow you or follow me
No surrender comes for free


 

LYRICS : I Miss The Zoo



I miss the drunk 
I miss the fiend 
I miss the simplicity of addiction 
And the scene
I miss wandering aimlessly 
In half-dead sewers with rats for eyes 
Chewing on forgiveness 
And the will to apologize
I miss the return of no return 
As I burn in avalanches
Of white snow and yellow cocaine 
I miss talking to brick walls
While following the grain 
And human dolls as I plagiarize myself like a dummy
Stuffed with counterfeit money 
For Cairo and black honey
I miss illusions begging to be chased 
Even as they disappear into me (erased)
Until there is no one or nothing but the chase 
And a powdery ghost with no face 
(Or faith)
And the woman of my dreams disappearing without grace 

I miss the zoo (x3)

I miss evolving into a cloud 
Of blue marijuana blown from the lips 
Of hookers and pimps 
As they shake each other down 
In alleys for the dammed but mighty 
With no one but the weak around
And the beautiful unsightly 
I miss numb Neanderthals marching
In rows of living dead 
From my wisdom teeth to Spain and back again (in my head)
I miss salvation in syringes and angels of mercy 
In blooms of smoke numbing rain
Which drinks when thirsty
I miss glasses full of spirits 
Who without tongues speak to me of Napoleon’s wild nights 
I miss staying up for days and becoming a psychic pretzel
Flying kites
Chewed on by a Zulu heading with toads to Mars 
A mysterious prison
And one without bars
(at least those kind of bars) 

I miss the zoo (x3)

I miss waking in the arms of strangers 
Like puppies just born in the pound to a dead mother with eyes sealed shut 
Looking for a tit to suck 
And other dangers 
When the night before laughter was our only pursuit
Even as knives carved up our backs 
And demons sat like Buddhas eating fruit
Meditating on hate forever in our minds 
I miss exposing even my bones 
And the need that rewinds
Even my burning home 
Even my gutted inner child 
Even my dead grandfather 
Beneath the ground that's wild
Even my criminal family 
Even my weed whacker thoughts 
Whipping a thin plastic string
To cut the ears off others 
As I sing
I miss van Gogh's revenge
I miss his nightly binge 
I miss spiders surrounding my bed 
And lifting me as if an effigy 
Or a dead king 
A prophet of doom 
A Jesus for the apocalypse 
Wearing dirt like perfume
Or a mother for Satan 
Or ghost for all the children of abuse 
Taking me into the fire 
Watching me burn 
Like a goose
As they sing 
In spider voices 
There goes creation 
There goes the moon 
There goes the butterfly
Wanting a cocoon
I miss being a bloom 
And a goon
Waking up too soon in the afternoon
A doctor of regret 
Hanging onto guitar strings in tune
And hanging by a belt 
Wrapped around some pipe to nowhere and felt
My lips, too, wrapped around 
What appears to be stained glass
As religious figures dress like rocks with class 
Burn into gas
To the center of my brain 
The euphoria of dying and being born all at once 
While wearing the hat that reads “dunce”

I miss the zoo (x3)




LYRICS : Yer Only Job



Your only job
Is to be free
Free to live
Inside a tree
Free to see
The way you see
If it's strange
Then let it be
Your only job
Is to be free
Free to laugh
Free to sing
Free to think
You might be king
Or you might fly
Or swim the sea
You have it all
When you are free
But freedom
Puts the fear in some
And they will tell you
Not to run
And not to dream
All you see
Inside the open
World of free
For freedom follows
No command
It has no feet
No arm or hand
It has no language
It has no rhyme
It has no clock
No goal or time
For freedom is
It's own reward
It's own protection
Without a sword
Without a fight
Freedom stands
Holding on
With phantom hands
To your heart
Of the sky
Winter lips
Mountains cry
Freedom holds
The world above
The reach of death
The reach of love
Freedom is
It's own reward
Distorted power
Singing chord
Freedom lifts
The stars in space
Freedom is
An angels face
The planets bouncing
Rubber balls
Freedom bouncing
Off your walls
You catch and throw
and catch some more
Freedom opens
Every door
Just remember
To be free
And you will be
The same as me
And I will be
The same as you
Sniffing flowers
Freedom glue
Stuck to stars
Which shoot thru skies
The twinkle twinkle
In your eyes
The bed of love
On which you sleep
The day of hope
The one you greet
The night of dreams
Both big and small
The call you hear
Down freedoms hall
Come home now
For home your in
One day gone
The next begin
It's a circle
Like wheels which ride
The waves of oceans
Freedom tide
Welcome home
You never left
Maybe lost
Freedom theft
But you got found
Freedom bee
Buzzing for
Eternity
And freedom is
The light you see
Enlightened soul
Turning key
Others see
And may wake up
Inspiration
Freedom cup
Drink the nectar
Of the soul
Freedom is
An endless hole
Which opens up
In the sky
It's a circle
You and I
We are one
We are free
I am you
And you are me
Yes we are one
When we are free
For I am you
And you are me
