New Music – Untied EP


Losing

We gotta hurry away from this place
Don’t worry my dear
Spin in this delusion
And the sound…
It’s all about it when you have to win.

This dying room, the table’s on its side
Good morning my dear
Standing in water
You have to win

You always said you had your mothers eyes
I see them now
I see them now
I see them now

I never thought I’d live my father’s life
I’m in it now
I’m in it now
I’m in it now

Another dime, the cities left behind
You know what I mean
Spin in this addiction
And the lights
You never taught me how to kiss the fire

The science fiction of unlucid minds
Tell the tales of all the hidden signs

You said the games we played were only mine
I begged you wait a minute now
A minute now


Having Mine

It’s 8 o’clock in the valley and not a single belly aches
head tired and weary and definitely mentally drained
these days prove short and there’s simply no time to play
for those of us who’ve got our shit together, our priorities straight

take a look around baby, don’t you realize lately we’ve been burning time
and you’ve been on it wishing you could get yours while I’ve been out there having mine

it’s 12 o’clock in the valley and honey you’re arriving late
cold shoulder under the impression that I’ve been deserving your praise
these days prove short and there’s simply no time to play
for those of us who’ve got our shit together, our priorities straight

take a look around baby, don’t you realize lately we’ve been burning time
and you’ve been on it wishing you could get yours while I’ve been out there having mine


Dirty Boots

Had your boot heel left but you turned right
it’s been reeling round my head
who’s gonna take her name?
I’m not ashamed of you

Just a taste of her body, her troubled mind
To think she’ll never return to me again
Who’s gonna take her place
Well I’ll just waste away

Call me morbid
Call me a pessimist, or worse
Say I’m sullen say I’m cursed

Lord I know they’ve come for me
For my soul I know they’re trying
Though I hold on so desperately
Desperation’s no place for hiding
And I don’t wanna go to sleep
Though I made this bed I lie in
And I say it doesn’t bother me
Truth is I’m afraid of dying


Untied

I feel an urgency tonight
to be alone where no one’s wrong or right
Nobody will tell me that I didn’t love you right
So I’ll be alone tonight

I am in love, it isn’t right
Makes me doubt the man I am inside
I’ve got so many strings untied
And every word that you said was a lie
And I need to get some sleep tonight

I am in love, it isn’t right
Makes me doubt the man I am inside
Nobody will tell me that I didn’t love you right
and I’ll be alone tonight


Sunday Evening

He wants to be like
A prayer, he looks down on me
He wants to be like
He used to say the same about me

Holy walls of they could hear him now
A worried father’s ears are bleeding now
Sunday evening looking down on me

He once gave me life
Took it back when I could think
He won’t bow or bend
My son, you know, he looks like you

Holy walls if they could read your mind
Grown and full of leaving you behind
Sunday evening looking back on me
Sunday evening
Sunday evening looking down on me

He wants to be like
A prayer, you know he smiles like me


Gizzards & Hearts


DeathJazz

Once again as Death roams on the aisles of New Orleans
But this time there’s no victims of floods or hurricanes
It knows the streets are empty, it takes it’s time to come
Dancing toward the music, soulful rolling of the drum
Isn’t it a pleasant surprise?
It isn’t just a clever disguise
Blue notes in moonlight become so bright, they lead his way
Drawing closer to the rhythms of the beats they play
Patrons, they all fall silent like they’ve received bad news
The blackened robe falls to the floor revealing dancing shoes
Isn’t it a pleasant surprise?
It isn’t just a clever disguise
And Death becomes a dance

*The Axeman of New Orleans was a serial killer active in New Orleans, Louisiana (and surrounding communities, including Gretna, Louisiana), from May 1918 to October 1919. Press reports during the height of public panic about the killings mentioned similar murders as early as 1911, but recent researchers have called these reports into question.


The Difference

Lowered his head, closed his eyes and said
“It’s in his heart”
Only found enough to breathe, to live, to know
Only I faded, I faded along with his skin tone
The skin that failed his flesh and bone
Your eyes will confide in this
Separate souls, never lives unfold
Isn’t it hard?
Only found enough to need, to want, to know
Only I faded, I faded along with his skin tone
The skin that failed his flesh and bone
Dreamless in a state as black as space without the stars
And without memories of life lived
Through my own eyes, still I can’t tell despite your bickering
The difference between sleep and dead
The difference between sleep and dead
The difference is in your chest
You’re bleeding out but you’re conceding death


Blacklight

Click, I see the window now
And I cannot allow your light to change it’s hue
Click, from red to green to blue
To black, the mood for two
But still, I stand alone
Walk with me for now I see
Being here brings peace to me
Quick, your life is on support but I will not fall short
The early bird dies young
Click, your window disappears and blink, your mind is clear
Your candle’s blown out for now
Walk with me for now I see
Being here brings peace to me
Better not wander off too far
Better not ‘cause I’m never gonna find you
Better not wander off too far
Better not
When you’re blind, the dark is fine
In light I’m not so keen
Wander far, don’t look to hard
Your path is never seen


Protagonist

Twist the chamber clock then counter
Waiting seems to keep us down
Swallow these, hear this, see that
Ears red, tongue black, eyes green, nose brown
Six in, three out, one down, all bound
Who’s crying now?
When the truth and the lies all collide, I’ll deny it
We all deny it, don’t we all?
Funny how you notice all the things I’ve done wrong
Needless are excuses for the ways you’ve done wrong
To think that I befriended my Mephistopheles
Knowing all, seeing all, being all on your own
Keeping yours in hiding while exposing whats mine
Opened eyes have noticed and they’ve seen through your eyes
To think that I befriended my Mephistopheles
Knowing all, seeing all, being all on your own
Your looks unkind so turn your head, that face is familiar
Take back that glare, it seems unfair that you should have to waste your time
Your mind is strong but you’re not the one who needs revelation
The path is clear that leads you here, but the wait is forever
You think so still until you make it to your destination
When you decide to cross that line, then you will know
That I won’t waste your time


Right Through Me

I can’t fake it when it all starts to bother
Can’t run and hide, hold my breath under water, I’m starting to falter
Tied down and troubled, I don’t want it anymore
Not a man, not your boy, not a song about a girl that wounded me
She cut right through me
You won’t find me far away from here
Just like lightening into the atmosphere
So far away, I’m flying
Into the atmosphere
I’m under control but I wonder
If there’s something alive crying out in the thunder, child, it’s over
Free with the wind and I’m not waiting anymore
All of this is underneath me
As it goes by
All of this is underneath me


6’s & 7s

High time that you would find me out
I line up with the moon at night
I lie that you won’t pull me down
That’s fine but it won’t change my mind
And now to my surprise
The world can see my eyes and how it pains me
To do the numbers angrily
It’s all 6s and 7s
Not fed up, but that’s where I’m headed
Why stay in the present?
Fixed seconds, hours that I dreaded
It’s all 6s and 7s
Forget what you might think you know
Leave now while there’s still time to go
We’ll sleep under the same black sky
That’s fine but it don’t move my mind
If I can break my ties
Will it be justified or will it change me?
I’ve got something up my sleeve


John The Clown

After all baby doll
Nobody likes a fool with foolish pride
Or when she looks at you all crazy-eyed
After all, alcohol
Pick up the slack Sunday morning
The look on my face serves a warning
Waiting for you, take all the time that you want
Waiting for you, no need to rush, I’m alone
Don’t you know better?
Are you learning at all?
Don’t you know better?
Are you learning?
Every man that you seem to meet, you got him shaking down to his feet and he’s
Got no idea what he’s getting himself into now, does he?
Look at them now looking at you, you don’t care but I damn sure do
Don’t worry, cause I’m just here to amuse you
Waiting for you, take all the time that you want
Waiting for you, no need to rush, I’m alone
Don’t you know better?
Are you learning at all?


The Vineyard

Ain’t nobody burning vines, I said
There ain’t no way to pass the time
Out in the fields
Believe them lies, run for your lives
Wine won’t ever taste the same
Do you feel the heat, it’s coming down
Counting the flames, it knows no names
Swinging low in the shadows of men
Old and lonely, vintage to drain
Sold my soul, it didn’t help anything
In the sun behind the dogwood grove
I feel alone, beside the pines it’s shining
Down on the stones
Believe them lies, run for your lives
Wine don’t ever taste the same
Do you feel the heat, it’s coming down
Oh, how the winds turn and when they get the lid off
A smoldering of cold and wet (the air will take a)
Dark tint and ominously sweet notes of fire
The grapes of wrath are burned from the vine
Oh when the rain came the rivulets were narrow
It made the sound of dense regret (the sound that gives a)
Dark sense of irony to unsuspecting witness
And a failing hawk is burned from the wire


Brother

I found a picture of you
The months turned to years
And it looks like you’re still alive
Surprised. Thought you were lying in the grave
That I made for you, I made for you in my mind
So I find you living, loving, breathing
Enjoying the life that used to be so damn hard
So sad and so hard
Keep yourself where you are
You wouldn’t want to change
You turned a brother’s love into a father’s spite
Backhanded bloodthirsty fight
You refused to change with me
From the boy I knew to the man that you could not be
So I find you living, loving, breathing
Enjoying the life that used to be so damn hard
So sad and so hard
Keep yourself where you are
You wouldn’t want to change
I hope your bones are warm
As the flames die down
And your eyes grow old
As the pain goes numb
From the lies you told
If you ever felt anything at all


Flight 13

Finally I realized it, You were the one who decided
Everything else coincided with the fallout
Finally I realized it, You were the one who collided
With everything I saw inside it
Now it’s coming down with a vengeance, A fall from the top of the world
All that is left is to end this
Flight 13 I bid farewell, Please ignore the warning bell
I could say that all is fine, There’s not a lot we can do this time
And finally I realized it…
You were the one on your knees then, A product of your environment
Nobody forced your surrender, It’s what you wanted
What you really craved was attention, Surely, you had good intentions
I sat and watched your ascension
Flight 13 I bid farewell
Please ignore the warning bell
I could say that all is fine
There’s not a lot we can do this time
Flight 13 you’re out of time
I can see it in your eyes
You could say that all is fine
There’s not a lot we can do
You were the one on your knees, naked and shameless, fake it it’s painless
You were so desperate to please, wandering aimless, afraid to come down
Finally I realized it, You were the one who collided
With everything I saw inside it
You were the one on your knees then, a product of your environment
Nobody forced your syringes


Cadence

Soulless bastards left their mark on this day
Give them what they lusted after for years,
Give them what they’d never say
Show them the meaning of taking back yourself
Let them feel this, let them know
Let them feel this, let this go
Don’t let it show, take this moment to climb
Stand up and fight back while you have this power
Cut them down in their prime
Show them the meaning of taking back yourself
Let them feel this, let them know
Let them feel this, let this go
This is your right
