Lyrics – Identity Crisis

X

Illusionary room will spin and fade away to meet my will
A world away confusion reins I’ll take you where it’s still
Look into my eyes and see there’s another side to me
Cast the shadows from your sight now you must believe
Pulsing lights that ebb and flow like tides or gusts of colored rain
Commiserate with pounding rhythm fills you up steals you away
Breaking sweat upon your skin evaporates the dulling pain
Consumes all that’s before you strips you bare and lets me in
Look into my eyes and see there’s another side to me
Cast the shadows from your sight now you must believe
Give to me the warm embrace cast a smile upon my face
This from you is all the fuel all the fuel I need

What Do You Want

When you wanted a look well I opened my book and you read it
Now you’re changing the lines were you totally blind did you forget it
See what you want to see
Without apology
What do you want from me
Now you’re holding a grudge you’re the jury and judge I’m the villain
I’m the one that’s to blame for the heartache and pain that’s your decision
See what you want to see
Make no apology
What do you want from me

Sunway

In uniformity is grace
The unrelenting steady pace
Each cosigned to his place
In uniformity is grace
I must leave from this dark cave
Far the sunway
What I need what I need – The wheels in my mind are the machine
What I need what I need – Some twisting turning can be seen
What I need what I need – And something sends adrenaline
What I need what I need – In like a maze you’ll find
How can ignorance be bliss
Recognize the dark abyss
There’s something more than this
Can’t you think for yourself
What I need what I need – The wheels in my mind are the machine
What I need what I need – Some twisting turning can be seen
What I need what I need – And something sends adrenaline
What I need what I need – In like a maze you’ll find
I must leave from this dark cave
Far the sunway
Let the empty spaces fill
Within this fertile soil till
Independent and free will
Let the empty spaces fill
I must leave from this dark cave
Far the sunway
What I need what I need – The wheels in my mind are the machine
What I need what I need – Some twisting turning can be seen
What I need what I need – And something sends adrenaline
What I need what I need – In like a maze you’ll find

Broken Doll

Submit obey
It is by choice you give it all away
In thought and deed
It suits you best conforming to my need
With tongues of leather I your wild spirit tame
In blind devotion free of moral guilt and shame
You’re hanging in suspension
Awaiting firm direction
Your modesty is lost
Inverted on the cross
Speak not at all
With grace and skill
An envied prize performing at my will
To hold display
A tapestry of flesh to bear my name
With pride and purpose serve committed to the goal
The psychodrama fill the most demanding role
Awaiting without question
Remorse or hesitation
This taste of foul fare
This property I share
Speak not at all
My broken doll
Speak – Speak not at all
You’re weak – My broken doll

Talkin’ That Stuff

In a little corner deep in your mind
There’s a part of you that always keeps you doing time
Wearing a mask for all to see
Eyes flashing all around and then you stare right through me
Changing direction always something else
Say the words fast enough you might even convince yourself
You’ve got more reasons more than I ever seen
Accusing fingers pointing them around pointing them at me
Chase the action feed the distraction
With all the little things that take care of your needs
You take what’s given think you’re breaking even
But that don’t mean it’s free
Push those feelings too and fro
Talkin’ that stuff I don’t even know
Changing season no rhyme or reason
You should learn to just let it go
Push those feelings too and fro
Talkin’ that stuff I don’t even know
Changing season no rhyme or reason
Why don’t you just let it go
Let it go

Come Apart

The darkened room’s familiar, the faces aren’t the same
I feel like a man treading water, playin’ a new game
I’m turnin’ and twisting avoiding, my eyes stare through the dark
I wish I could leave it alone, perhaps you know my name
No comfort around me, ‘cept a double at the bar
With friends or with strangers, it’s always alone
Those cocaine dreams, my thoughts never see me through
Borrow this tragic cloak that I own
I do believe, I will come apart some day
I do believe, I do
I do believe, someone take away the pain
I do believe, it’s true
My wretched condition, just a temporary thing
I know I will do some good some day
So I wait in the wings, see what tomorrow brings
And try not to look the other way
I do believe, I will come apart some day
I do believe, I do
I do believe, my world hangs on a string
I do believe, I do

I’ve Made You Home

Ocean take the sand
Back to familiar land
Listen well and understand
In a club to hear the bands
Cuervo Gold black and tans
Destiny so close at hand
But you were under age
And in a room where you wouldn’t wait
A little soon but a lotta late
Guiding hand or twist of fate
Cross the great divide I shall find you once again
It’s in a dream under the skin
To recognize I shall die calling out your name
I’ve made you home forever
Wind shape the land
Time move the hand
Listen well and understand
Tides ebb and flow
Seasons come and go
And we reap or sow or something in between
Now the world has turned around
Here the words here the sound
And remember what was found
Cross the great divide I shall find you once again
It’s in a dream under the skin
To recognize I shall die calling out your name
I’ve made you home forever
Cross the great divide I have found you once again
It’s in a dream under the skin
To recognize I shall die calling out your name
I’ve made you home forever

It’s Come to This

Lamp light shadows dark upon the tapestry
Dim lit walls hold back the treachery
Treason plague usurpers of the crown
Thankless hordes one day I’ll bring them all down
The dead are all I trust
Their blades will turn to rust
I’ve learned to see the sin in every man
Hearts of black assassin’s blade in every hand
Hollow praise which only rings conspiracy
Tangled vines to make the wine and poison me
The dead are all I trust
Their blades will turn to rust
Like the sting of an ungrateful child
With venomous smiles
Imagine
The world once when I was young and strong
My word was law
Now it’s come to this
A cleansing of fire and steel
Before me again they shall kneel
The streets shall be emptied
The dungeons be filled
The tide shall be turned And this sea of unrest shall be stilled
Like the sting of an ungrateful child
With venomous smiles
Imagine
The world once when I was young and strong
My word was law
Now it’s come to this

40 foot World

We choose our parts and we take our places
In a circus of circumstance
All the passion life replaces
Many called but few have the chance
It’s a cloud with a hidden lining
Take a peek through the looking glass
Hear the distant Sirens singing
Through the misty mountains pass
Let this moment last forever
Let the music hold its trance
Change expressions on their faces
Move your heads clap your hands
And the streets are not gold
And the future’s unsure
Let the story unfold
In a forty foot world
There’s no pattern rhyme or reason
To this feeling from deep inside
Weather fickle changing season
Move ahead or get left behind
And the streets are not gold
And the future’s unsure
Let the story unfold
In a forty foot world
