Lyrics

Mr. Black

It’s hard being you Mr. Black

Life’s become dull and so sad

The world is beautiful and full of color

But you see black and no other

 

I’m trapped in your dark thoughts like a prisoner

Let some light into the room

You’ve forsaken all that you loved

For trivial things

 

And yet a rainbow shines

And yet a rainbow shines

And yet a rainbow shines

Thought the tear drops of

Your sad and lonely eyes

 

Smile Mr. Black the suns out today

Let yourself go, get carried away

One of us is a pretender

 You forgot but I remember?

 

I’m trapped in your dark thoughts like a prisoner

Let some light into the room

You’ve forsaken all that you loved

For trivial things

 

And yet a rainbow shines

And yet a rainbow shines

And yet a rainbow shines

Thought the tear drops of

Your sad and lonely eyes

Lyrics

Levitation

Levitate, levitation
Until gravity pulls me down
Why must it always?
Levitate, Levitate, lavation

To a better place
A higher station

Until gravity pulls me down
Until gravity pulls me down

Floating on that dreamers’ cloud
Under the brightest sun around
On a deathbed of roses I’d die happily

I am lost
I am lost

I'm always fighting gravity
I'm always fighting gravity

Story

Single from "My Alter Ego Says Hello" I wanted there to be a contrast between the upbeat light music and the dark thyme of the lyric. The track really sets the tone for the entire album.  

Lyrics

My Alter Ego Says Hello


I hear it talking in my head
And breath in deeply through my nose
I feel it slip into my skin
Light up a cigarette then blow


My alter ego say's hello
My alter ego say's hello


It's cracking jokes and talking wild
Collection numbers as it goes
Debating arbitrary facts
So watch your girlfriend Romeo


When my alter ego say's hello
When my alter ego say's hello


I think I'm losing my grip
It's riding high I'm laying low
My troubles grow my egos laughing
And I'm about to explode


I have a monster in my head
I've fed it well and watched it grow
But now it's cut off my connection
One of us has to go


My alter egos in control
My alter egos in control
And my alter ego says hello

Lyrics

Headshrinker
 
Got it in my mind
To do something wrong
I want to shed my skin
I’ve been in it way to long
And I feel just like a ghost
With no one to haunt
 
 
Empty my broken head
It’s all filled up
With what I can’t recall
Tear out my broken heart
I want to feel the pain or nothing at all
 
I was just looking for an easy way out
I was just looking for an easy way out
 
How long will this take?
And do I have to wait?
And when the jackets on
Should I plead insane?
Doc how do you find the time
For all the crazies in the world?
 
Patch up my broken life
It’s all banged up
From one to many falls
Seal up my vocal chords
I don’t want to speak from this lonely chair to the walls
I was just looking for an easy way out
I was just looking for an easy way out
 
And I feel just like a ghost
With no one to haunt
 
Empty my broken head
It’s all filled up
With what I can’t recall
Tear out my broken heart
I want to feel the pain or nothing at all
Seal up my vocal chords
I don’t want to speak from this lonely chair to the walls
 
I was just looking for an easy way out
I was just looking for an easy way out
I was just looking for an easy way out
I was just looking for an easy way out

Lyrics

A Place Called Nowhere

A fresh start to living clean
Breakfast and scrambled brains
Spoon fed by live in maids
Surrounded by walls
Tucked in a paralyzed
From within from within

Three cheers of hip hurray
God as a prescription
Comforting ‘till the end
Until we draw our last breath
Deep, full and sterilized
Breath it in, breath it in

Screen all my calls
Cut off my friends
Be my comedian
Tell jokes till I laugh
Or till I cry
When I’m reminded again
Of who and what I am

In a place called nowhere
No one asked questions
They mind their own business
Things stay the same
No one cares where you come from
Or asks where you’re going
And that’s where I’m going
If nowhere can be found

If there’s a place called nowhere
I’m going to find it
Sell all my memories
Pick out a house and buy it
It’s nowhere so you won’t be there
Be there to haunt me
Be there to taunt me
Be there to remind me
 
That you don’t deserve this
Or that your beauty blinds me
Just a place called nowhere
Or someplace where the world can’t find me

Lyrics

FELL IN LOVE WITH A SWITCHBLADE GIRL

I fell in love with a switchblade girl
And she carved a hole in my heart
Wide and deep
And right straight though it
I never loved so hard
And love never hurt so good

She was dangerous, venomous,
Her kiss was poisonous
She was a murderous

Now my feelings are all scarred up
Sliced and diced
By a rippers lust
I don’t make love
Honey, I just fuck
Cause all my feelings are so scarred up
She bled me out
She sucked me dry
And then she left me here to die
She did all things my sweet that you won’t do
Now my feelings are so scarred up
And soon I’ll be bleeding you

She was dangerous, venomous,
Her kiss was poisonous
She was a murderous

I fell in love with a switchblade girl
And she carved a hole in my heart
Wide and deep
And right straight though it
I never loved so hard
And love never hurt so good

Story

Song I wrote about the death of adult film actress Maryam Irene Haley  aka Haley Paige.

Lyrics

THE VALLEY

Fortune cookie what do you say?
The dream alive on the streets of L.A.
But dreams get dirty, when you’re down on your knees
It’s not mud it’s the sleaze

Its Californian baby
Welcome to the show
Down here in the Valley of San Fernando
And if the sun don’t thrill ya
The next scene surely will
Straight from a “Tarantino” film

No outrage or scandal

No shots were heard

Some folk think she got what she deserved

There's one less junkie on the street

A family picture taken back in the day
I knew her then by her god given name
She had a secret but she never did say…

Its California baby
Welcome to the show
Down here in the Valley of San Fernando
And if the sun don’t thrill ya
The next scene surely will
Straight from a “Tarantino” film

It’s California baby….

Lyrics

Wonderful
The clock on the wall keeps time with the breathing
The years now reveal, it’s late in the season
Lines on a face, cracks deep and showing
Scares on a soul, wise in the knowing
Through it all
It’s time to say it’s been wonderful
Just smile and say
It’s been a wonderful life
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful, wonderful
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful
 
No mysteries and no deep meaning
Nothing revealed, eternal dreaming
Smiles not the tears, words unspoken
So parts a soul, wise in the knowing
Through it all It’s time to say it’s been wonderful
Just smile and say
It’s been wonderful
It’s time to say it’s been wonderful
Just smile and say
It’s been a wonderful life
 
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful, wonderful
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful
 
Lines on a face, cracks deep and showing
Scares on a soul, wise in the knowing
Smiles not the tears, words unspoken
So parts a soul, wise in the knowing
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful, wonderful
It’s been a wonderful life
Wonderful
