Falling Down

Today is just the same as any other day to me.
Walking wall to wall to pass the time, I picture what it's
like on the other side.
Because I'm here on the inside of blue, without you.

Day in day out on and on ... I'm missing you.

Nothing seems to work as well, my face in the mirror looks
like hell. I think I need to see a doctor.
I watch the slow hand move line by line. I can't even
think of the words that rhyme.

Day in day out on and on ... I'm missing you.

Some days it feels, just like falling down.
Some days it's easy, just like falling down.

Some days it's real, just like falling down.
Some days it's easy, just like falling down.

Day in day out on and on ... I'm missing you.

Sacred Ground

Iced over, close your eyes. Whisper the flame, it takes us
higher.
Seems our world is closing around. When I'm inside you,
you bring me to sacred ground.
When I'm inside you, you bring me to sacred ground.

Now you're the one that I want, you know it's true.
Let go of everything, open up to me.
I'm right beside you, I'll be your watchful eye.

I send waves of devotion over you. You take it all in and
give it back, give it back again.

You bring me to sacred ground, when I'm inside you.
You bring me to sacred ground.

Yes we'll love till there's nothing left to give...
matching every movement, swimming in an ocean of sweat, and
scent of you. It drives me to ...

You bring me to sacred ground, when I'm inside you.
You bring me to sacred ground.

I know I can change your mind. Give it to me the same way.
Giving it all up for love, I know that you feel the same
way.

I'd give it all up for you, I swear I would.

Now I'm falling, falling inside ...

You bring me to sacred ground, when I'm inside you.
You bring me to sacred ground.

I'm inside you.

You bring me to sacred ground, when I'm inside you.
You bring me to sacred ground.

One Life

One life, is like one prayer, one love to share.
One thought, one dream. One world, one meaning.

A man that's lost everything holds his faith in his heart.
Speaks to god of broken dreams, never wondering why when
nothing's heard ... one prayer.

A woman cries in frustration, her man holds it inside.
They forgot what got them here, the vows they promised to
stand by ... one love.

One life is like one prayer, one love to share.
One thought, one dream. One world, one meaning.

It don't cost much for you to get to heaven, you just got
to say your prayers.
If you want to stand with your saviors, you better learn
how to bow your head.
Now bend your knees and bruise the earth and pray.

Heed the cries of the war child. Mothers hold them to
their breasts.
Fathers fight an enemy and fear breeds unto itself ... one
world.

One life, is like one prayer, one love to share.
One thought, one dream. One world, one meaning. One
life ... One.

When The Rain Comes

You've come to me again my friend. I've been waiting so
long.
Life seems strange and hard sometimes, maybe I won't make
it this time.

Oh They've taken all I have, but I just need what's left of
today, and you can wash it all away.
When it all comes down and I'm feeling tired and afraid,
you're always there, and seem come when
I've nothing left to give away.

Now I wait for your winds to come and give me breath for
another day, and your rain to wash me.

I feel the rain coming. I feel it in my heart, take away
my pain.
I feel the rain coming. Wash me down, wash me down.

Here comes the rain. Hold me now, just for awhile.

I feel like a candle flame in the wind. The dust of my
deeds past, covers me, like a fading lie.

I feel the rain coming. I feel it in my heart, wash away
my pain.
Wash me down, wash me down. I feel the rain coming.

Here comes the rain.

How Could I

There you were like a ghost from my early days, staring
straight ahead at me.
How could I ever guess, from that moment on, just how
everything would change.

How could I know?

I recall something strange coming over me, somewhat at a
loss for words.
I'd been around and had my share of what I thought my soul
could bare, but never seen what I saw in your eyes.

How could I know?
We never took it slow.
We gave it all we had and more.

How could I know?
We never took it slow.
We gave it all we had and more.

Looking back at where we've been, the road ahead is so
uncertain.
We keep passing open windows forever.

I've tried before I'll try again, I never know where were
going.
I only know that I'll be yours forever ... yours
forever ... forever ... forever.

How could I know?
We never took it slow.
We gave it all we had.
We gave it all we had.

Beside You

Take your children down to the water wash their heads and
sing .. holy holy

Last night I dreamed you were standing there, strong and
tall beside me.
All my life ... behind me.

You gently took me by my hand and led me to where
I couldn't see,but where I've always been ... an island.

In my dreams I've been an island ...

where I'm all alone, and I've built these walls stone by
stone.
I want to leave but I don't know where to go.

I've tried the best I can, but it's hard to be a man and
feel the way you feel.
I'm different on the inside. I've tried to give to you
what you need to get you through.

I'll always be ... beside you.

The day you were born I held you ... small and helpless
crying, your life and mine entwining.

As I looked into your eyes I saw myself in an overview,
reaching out to you from this island in the sea.
I don't want to be an island.

I've tried the best I can, but it's hard to be a man and
feel the way you feel.
I'm different on the inside.

I've tried to give to you what you need to get you through.
I'll always be ... beside you.

Liquid Sky

I ain't no Romeo. I'm just the man for you.
Holding out as secrets travel, they kind of get to you.

Everybody says that it could've been something.
Never was a smart kid, never knew a good thing.

Always hearing voices swim ... in your liquid sky.

Liquid Sky ... Always hearing voices, like no more choices
in disguise.

I ain't no sacred idol or a saint pretending.
I'll build you up. I'll tear you down. Turn you wrong side
in.

What am I afraid of? Everyone's listening.
Standing on my soapbox, lost the beginning.

Always hearing voices ... swim ... in your liquid sky.

Liquid Sky ... I'm always hearing voices, like no more
choices, like a lie.
It's just, it's just liquid sky.

I'm always hearing voices like electric shock waves in
disguise.

I don't know what this means. I'll leave it for your
interpretation. It's just me at the edge ...

Everybody says that it could have been something.
Never was a smart kid, never knew a good thing.

Always hearing voices ... swim in your liquid sky.

Liquid Sky ... I'm always hearing voices, like no more
choices, like a lie.

It's just, it's just liquid sky. I'm always hearing voices
like electric shock waves in disguise.

Always hearing voices swim ...

Breakdown

When the whirlwind of noise surrounds and get intense,
and when words can't hide their anger or intent.

I feel it in my bones and in my head, can't make sense of
what is said.

Ready for the take down, headed for a breakdown.

Fear has me backed against these walls that I follow and
pace.

Time moves in and out of phase of everything that I face.

I feel it in my bones they rattle and shake, can't find a
trace of what it takes to stop this take down.

Can't stop this breakdown!

Welcome to my scene. A place that's in-between where
squares fit the round.
Some affectionately call it ... my breakdown....

When I feel the pressure mounting and my hands begin to
clutch,
I reach my limit of pain and I've had enough.

It feels good to pound on tables and chairs and feel the
frenzy start to wear.

Breakdown this take down, gotta stop this breakdown.

Welcome to my scene. A place that's in-between where
squares fit the round.

It'll never be, never be more than this. Never.

Burning Man

Miles of desert fly, the quiet of dawn.

I ride the winds of morning to see the man that's burning.

BurningMan

Miles of desert fly, the quiet of dawn.

I ride the winds of morning to see the man that's burning.

In my head I hear the song a million voices strong.

I feel the heart of conscious returning, that's why the man
is burning.

BurningMan

Wot Kinda Man

Don't know you man or where you're from. Some say a crazy
man, came undone.
Please man, make it all make sense.

Gotta be some man to keep a promise, you can count on this.

Wot kind of man are you?
Tell me, tell me what do I do?

When you left you took part of me, all the things I'll
never see.
I fake it, break it, whatever makes it right, can't see
the truth through the web of all your lies.

Wot kind of man are you?

Sometimes life's not too clear for me, apologizes never
come easily.
I suck up, and buck up and fuck up...

I've spent all my life wondering, what did I to you, what
was I supposed to think?
Hate man, why didn't you tell me? Now I'm the man, at the
end of your family tree.

Wot kind of man are you? Tell me, tell me what do I do?

Right Side Of My Mind

Hey, are you okay? Better luck on another day. This path
some weren't meant to follow.

You're curious I can see, always looking behind the trees.
Keeping one eye on tomorrow.

Re-engineer your head, is really what the door mouse said.
Push the lies away.

If you take time and look for clues ...scrape the shit off
your shoes, you'll feel the real today.

I'd love to take you to see what I see there, on the right
side of my mind.
On the right side, on the right side ... of my mind.

Hey, one more thing, these things are hard to explain. For
some, it seems strange to swallow.

The frontier of our minds is the last place we find, but
maybe the first place we should go.

I'd love to take you to see what I see there... on the
right side of my mind.
