Life is useless so is love

Blood is nothing done is done

Take me backwards over there

Once a lifetime never fair NO

Will it ever end Iwish it could

Where's they sting like it should

Life done broke me all fucked up

Nothing's happening nothing's up

Didn't ask to be here so

Let's drop the curtain it's time to go see it said

See where you're at

How do you like that

If I were Shakespeare I'd write a song

Of romantic longings and soliloquies sung

Death and carnage would not despair

The choices made would cloud the air

But I ain't Shakespeare I ain't a man

I've taken it all I've bitten the hand

I've stared at the abstract claiming it's truth

I punctured the priest in the confessional booth

Didn't care more yesterday How can it seem to be that way when you're dead

So where you at How do you like that

Exploding erupting orgasmic and more

See through the ceiling and punch through the floor

Huff like a big bad wolf and kick down that door

Blue like horizons on the oceanless shores

Come on

Blue is the color inevitably

The blues is the core and the Earth is the sea

Unkind unkempt ungainly

Blue is the color the masses see

Blue like the glass hewn desert

Blue like the drugs of comfort

Blue like the song of the used and oppressed

Blue like the mood of the sad and depressed

Apocalypse Tomorrow

Do you have an armageddon I can borrow

The waters rise and suffocate

The air hangs burning concentrate

Do you have an armageddon I can borrow

Apocalypse tomorrow

Come On!

Silent sound means the world to me

Falling down all around me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

Violent sound seems to make me be

Triumph around gave the rest to me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

Hideaways don't mean shit to me

Tidalwaves bring out the best in me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

In the night she stays

They tell you to walk before you run

But me I want to fly

Shake off that misanthropy

And try and touch the sky

A sky that's cold as winter icicles in May

A rage that never really goes away

Spend all your spare time looking back

'Cause memories never fade

Everything I've seen just seems

To be a grand charade

Of faceless voices claiming to be the status quo

But never let them show you where to go

They tell you to think before you leap

Lives they just fall down

All these wasted people

They just burrow in the ground

That's hard as screaming arctic glaciers late in June

Just another word for a cocoon

And so I sit back and think a while

Wondering what it's for

This grand scheme that builds some dreams

And thrashes others on the floor

That's crowded by a billion entities and some

Who never even heard the starting gun

Break your back break your face

Fall asleep miss the race

Scared to be anything

Scaredy scared of everything


People suck people lie

Just complain all the time

Whine all day fall in line

Just fit in it's lemming time

So fuck the herd

Fuck 'em

Cattle sheep chew your cud

Stupid and dumb as mud

You don't care if it's true

Or a lie so fuck you

And fuck the herd

Fuck 'em

I will work for food

Often misconstrued

Please don't think me rude

Baseless, strained or crude

Inside out they come

I'm the chosen one

Sleep with Jesus' son

Be the lonely one

I will do anything

I'm the homeless one

Terrorized for fun

I'm the chosen one

Lest we come undone

I will do anything

Let me have some food

Please give me some food

Can I have some food

May I have some food

You're a memory

Far as I can see

Priestly evil deeds to me

Free as lusting chance

Bathed in decadance

Got it in my pants

My pants

I'm leaving here today

Leaving anyway

Gonna live today


Run the fuck away

Got an itch for a more evil dare

I'm gone like a song in the air

I'm gone like a song in the air

I spent my young life running away

The more I ran the more I stayed

Motion is home to the restless 

And mad

I'm gonna muse my dream

Lead me where it leads

Lead the voiceless away

Leave me the fuck alone

Leave me just the motherfuck alone

Leave me the fuck alone


Pleased to be remembering me well

I was born in the night

Sacrificed to the roving blight

I'd welcome death if she'd only suck my breath

My only pedigree

Is this faceless madding sea


Bodies surround me but not one can see me

Isolation here for no one and not me

My only lifelong quest is to have a painless death

I only want to see


Where do you run to when you ain't got no home

Safely chewed off society's bone

A young priest took me in

She was bathed in earthly sin


I have a pistol but I can't

I can't read

She gave me love unconditionally

She kicked me in the teeth

Turned my gun on me

I only want to see

Why she loves me
