Disappearing Friend

 

searching deep to find you, stories will never end 
markings of the chosen, we’re the jade, you’ve been jaded 


struggle through the failures, evasive calamity 
staring through the shadows, if you’re the marred, we’re the martyr 


something’s gotta give, another way 


(chorus) 
you’re dumb and blind, fell down didn’t get up again 
locked down and feeling so lost, locked down, locked out again 


disappearing friend, you used to feel alive 
I will show you how you’re the jade, we’ve been jaded 
something’s gotta give now, evasive calamity 


I will scream it out loud, you’re the marred, we’re the martyr 


something’s gotta give, another way 


(chorus) 
you’re dumb and blind, fell down didn’t get up again 
locked down and feeling so lost, locked down, locked out. 


shout, cover, shout, cover

Awakened

 

these thoughts again 
tangled and weaving, spinning around on their own and

a fear’s at hand 
grace is in falling, self righteousness crutch 
we’re not alone again 


(Chorus) 
will you wake will you close your eyes 
will you wake will you cry at night 
will you wake will you call out loud “you’re only in my head, only in my head” 
awakened


you trust again, broken and weary 
faith will not stand on its own 
and the nails in hands conquered the sin 
and destroyed all the night, and bought us back again 


(Chorus) 
will you wake will you close your eyes 
will you wake will you cry at night will you wake will you call out loud 
“you’re only in my head, only in my head” 
awaken

Shine A Light

 

Light… 
(chorus) 
shine a light, you pray for healing, lies disguise 
they stand up to me but flee from reality 
shine a light, you pray for healing, lies disguise them 
they stand up to me but flee from reality now 


what will tomorrow bring, these demons all around 
what will tomorrow bring when I’m living life 


well I’ve been trying, enemies rising 
in all those things they’ve blown them all away now 
well I’ve lost my sight, when darkness hides 
in all those things you’ve burned them all away now 
push it way now, shove it away now, flush it away now 


Light… 
(chorus) 
Shine a light, you pray for healing, Lies disguise 
they stand up to me but flee from reality 
shine a light, you pray for healing, lies disguise them 
they stand up to me but flee from reality 
nothing, you’re nothing, you’re nothing

Give It Away

 

debate all the time when this conversation is right, the time is right 
your loved ones adore and want you to be with them for 
life…forever, well your choice will say 


(chorus) 
try all the time to explore the reasons, life won’t remain this present season 
time is running out for good intentions, I beg you to change your mind and just give it away 


intellect foretold its present struggle with your soul 
one knocks at the door, this burning building is coming down 
coming down, one way out now, please open the door 


(chorus) 
try all the time to explore the reasons 
life won’t remain this present season, time is running out for good intentions 
I beg you to change your mind and just give it away 
I think you’ll renounce your life and just give it away 


just give it away, just give it away 
I don’t want it to bring you down, down 
I don’t want that, down…just give it away

Freakshow

 

I keep rolling, starving for the telephone 
I can’t wonder why you still hate me 
you’re worn out from squawking on that megaphone 
this thing is blowing up now, exploding 


I can’t be what you need so don’t hate me, I can’t see what you see, sorry kill me 
two times rendered far too long to get this gone 
I’m praying longing to forgive, release me 
punch drunk illusions fostered by the stereo 
this whole thing is a lie now unfolding

 
I can’t be what you need so don’t hate me, I can’t see what you see, sorry kill me 
I’ll never drink this disease, guess I’m a freakshow 
I’ll never be what you need guess I’m a freakshow 


It’s all gone to me, well I’m drowning no doubt about 
it It’s all gone to me, well I’m drowning no doubt about it 
I can’t be what you need so don’t hate me 
I can’t see what you see, sorry kill me 
I’ll never drink this disease guess I’m a freakshow 
I’ll never be what you need, I’m a freakshow 
it’s all gone to me, well I’m drowning no doubt about it

Ted

 

you are a sick man, you are a spiteful man 
you have been paralyzed, for only fools succeed

 
(chorus) 
for forty years Ted what has become of you 
those forty years Ted in your dark cellar 
for forty years Ted you could not see the end 
those forty years Ted you’ve not began 


well you must be good boy, your lies and pretense clear 
you will not be a slave, your mind’s superior 


(chorus) 
for forty years Ted what has become of you 
those forty years Ted in your dark cellar 
for forty years Ted you envied every man 
those forty years Ted you never lived 


for forty years Ted

in your dark cell 


why forty years Ted, a life times forty,

not forty years Ted 
a life times forty in a hole 


no more no more, why why, no more
