My Disease

October 26, 2011

Green grass and a bottle of  wine
five lines yeah i’m doing fine
blonde hair in the night
then you come creeping up into my mind

you’re like a spider crawling up my soul
i hear your whisper every time she calls
your fingers when she’s touching me
your kiss this ain’t real

it’s a strange feeling i feel
it’s a strange fever
you’re my disease

how can i move her when you’re moving me
how can i touch her when you’re touching me
how can i love her when you keep haunting me

it’s a strange feeling i feel
it’s a strange fever
you’re my disease

i want to be your addiction
i want to be your disease


Red Moth Rising

October 26, 2011

Innocence can never be free
run away with your dreams
open up your eyes to see me
close your eyes so you can be

i am glow worm almost shining
you make me feel like
red moth rising

run away with my dreams
forget the face forget the scream

i am glow worm almost shining
you make me feel like
red moth rising


Too Many Angels

October 26, 2011

Who am i to even tell her
who am i to even care
who am i to to try to warn her
who am i when i’m not there

i see her running all alone
i see her dancing all night long
she fades away within the light
she fades away in my eyes

too many angels in my skies
too many angels in my eyes
i’m not gonna cry for you
i’m not gonna die for you
i’m not gonna fly for you
tonight


Dreams Kill

October 26, 2011

Love hurts heroin kills
maybe i won’t  maybe i will
sometimes i’m just too tired to dream

she sits so silently
you slip inside of me
sometimes i’m just too tired to dream

if you put it in me will you stop the pain
if you put it in me will you stop the pain
if i let you in me will you stop the pain
if you come on in me will you take the pain
take the pain away

i close my eyes to sleep
close my eyes you’re watching me
sometimes i’m just too tired to dream

if you put it in me will you stop the pain
if i put you in me will you stop the pain
if i let you in me will you stop the pain
if i put you in me will you take the pain
if you put it in me will you stop the pain
if i let you in me will you take the pain
if i let you in me will you stop the pain

i tried to say that it was all a mistake
but you thought i was so beautifully dangerous
as i aim these words into your face
my fingers moving out of place
one dead lover breathes upon my eyes
it’s an insane situation
one little prick
and you know what you are

if i put it in me will you stop the pain
if i put you in me will you stop the pain
take the pain away

broken unto to night
i’m where you’ve placed me
trapped so intimately

Angels # 2

October 26, 2011

Who am i here to tell her
what am i supposed to tell her
too many angels in my skies
too many angels in my eyes
i ain’t gonna cry for you
i ain’t gonna die for you
this time

no more angels in my skies
no more angels in my eyes
too many angels
bye bye


Forlorn

October 26, 2011

I’ve come down at last
but i’ve forgotten the game
can’t remember my past
can’t remember my name
was i brought down too low
or did i fall from above
i try to forget
i can’t remember your love

i fell off your roads
i got lost in their trails
that kept leading me down
till the imagery fails
i wait for the light
to burn out the dark
i wait for your love
to burn out my heart

just wait a little bit longer
just wait a little long while
there’s somebody there
calling me over
i can’t remember
your love

I searched for your face
but it’s all just a crowd
for your voice here once soft
now it’s always too loud
I try to escape
but you’re all that i’ll be
till i remember your love
i can’t remember me



Junkies Kiss

October 26, 2011

She comes running through the water
beaches red and faces gray
the suns falling out of motion
as i slip another day
oh she’s hanging onto my arm
and she’s harder to resist
as she takes me down into the ocean
and she takes me with a junkies kiss

and i’m staring in the mirrors
looking for you in my eyes
her white hand upon my shoulder
taking me down with a smile
and the floors they seem much softer
and you’re harder now to miss
as she lays me out for the night
and she breaks me with a junkies kiss

i thought i heard you calling
as i start to take the fall
she lays down beside me
as the silence takes control
she said love can’t save me
as my heart turns to the fist
she waits for me upon the morning
and she wakes me with a junkies kiss


Circles

October 26, 2011

I’ve got no time for tomorrows
and all my dreams are yesterdays
i spent my love for this life time
i let you all slip away

then she rises here before me
with just a smile on her face
she’s almost got me believing
that i can find your peace again

now it’s time for smashing mirrors
time to scream past whispers
time to break these circles that i’ve made
time to walk past windows
time to love past shadows
time to break these circles that i’ve made


Born Dying

October 26, 2011

Well i called out to my doctor, doctor let me be
i don’t need a shot now to set me free
let me be in my blanket ripped and torn
man i’ve been dying since the day that i was born

well you can be my lover baby you can be my friend
you can lay down on my tombstone when i reach the end
lay me down where i’ll be safe and warm
baby i’ve been a dying since the day that i was born

you can have my heart you can have my soul
just put me down baby when it’s time to go
let me go you can lay my bones
baby i’ve been a dying since the day that i was born
