Visions of Paradise

So I'll try a little harder next time
Under the terms that you remind
Me the distance left between those skinny lines
Of thoughts and tides
Of just how long it takes to reach the other side

You have promised a life ripe with forgiveness
But you wont show me any faces or names
You have left me to fall back to my senses
It's all the same it's all the same it's all the same

And once again you've gone and passed off the torch
Just like you've done so many times before
And over and over in your head you feel it's a means to an end
But you're just starting fires
You're always starting fires

You have promised a life ripe with forgiveness
But you wont show me any faces or names
You have left me to fall back to my senses
It's all the same it's all the same it's all the same

This place is like a watering hole
But its dried and no one really knows where to go

And there's nothing I fear more than an ache
Its only there to let you know that you've aged

And now everything has left but the moon
And its reflected light has done more than proved

That this life I've found cannot be described
Because no one ever really knows what it's like

And no sweat and blood can convince me now
That there's anything better around

I haven't looked at anyone since
You've found me and that's where I've been

So I'll try a little harder next time
Under the terms that you remind
Me the distance left between those skinny lines
Of thoughts and tides
Of just how long it takes to reach the other side

You have promised a life ripe with forgiveness
But you wont show me any faces or names
You have left me to fall back to my senses
It's all the same it's all the same it's all the same
It's all the same it's all the same it's all the same


I wrote this two years ago - somehow can't seem to capture the right feeling when I'm recording it.

Moonrise

But it was never enough
You asked for inches so I gave you miles
And as the subtle sense of urgency subsides
You're left trying to rid the ocean of its tides

I never asked for this
I'm terrified
I never wanted it all
It's too much
But not enough
It's not right

But it was never enough
You asked for minutes so I gave you hours
And as the subtle sense of love with me subsides
You're left trying to sift the sand between the tides

I never asked for this
With pictures painted far ahead the only way to really go was down
I never wanted it all
Well past the stage of disappointment all we ever needed was a breath
Of fresh air
Of naivety
Of novelties and subtleties
Of sitting on the edges of our chairs

But it was never enough
You asked for inches so I gave you miles
And as the subtle sense of urgency subsides
You're left trying to rid the ocean of its tides
You're left trying to rid the ocean of its tides.

Can't stop singing this one.

And the Villain Still Pursued Her

Lucid dreams return to me
Let me be my own tv screen
Looking on as my own god
Splitting fog to finally find my way

Living dreaming talking trees
Some things just aren't quite what they seem
My stock of love is wearing thin
I promised grim, but now I've built the way

Two ounces crept back into five
This magic spell inside my mind
If what I dream is truly fake
Why do I wake, and feel I've seen the way.

Now nothing moves with every step
A simple image of regret
I spin and there the path begins
To move again, at times behind's the way.

As cinders burn the fire swells
Piecing together my own hell
On top of sheets I sweat and wait
Is it just fate, or have I found my way.

Song that started out as a 40 second clip on a 4 track. Still haven't been able to recreate the sounds...


Pick up the snake

And through photographs you showed me of a time known long ago
Every nickel you would save till you could buy a little more
And I've finally come to realize that I'm just as old as you
If not older from the things I know that you've never been through
So ill kiss you on the forehead smile and cry my soul to sleep

Well I know that pain has left you but its in your shadow still
Everything you've gotten over in the dark waiting to kill
All the happiness and memories all the normal you've acquired
Distance puts out like an ocean till you don't feel so inspired
Somehow I'm the one who's crazy as we fight ourselves to sleep

Through all this assumed perfection I've forgot my favorite thing
That little gap between my teeth that let's me breathe that let's me sing
Ill accept what's right when you dispose this rule book of the world
Kissing feet has got me nowhere disappearing seems to work
So I'll throw away my laurels and just drink myself to sleep

I know its impossible
To stay away from all the troubled
I have just one last request
To find a place to shed my skin before this empty shell consumes the rest of me

Trying to get some recording done but there's never enough time. Lots of things consistently running through my head.
