Lyrics

Tension

The time has come 
It’s difficult to say 
The ground is loose 
And yesterday’s tomorrow day 

Escape, release while you have your mind 
Let go, discard, these emotions bind 

Find meaning now 
You have this time ponder 
Hindrance collides 
Keep courage, tightly fight, wander 

Escape, release while you have your mind 
Let go, discard, these emotions bind 

I was alone, tension found me 
Shown was the path, peace sought freely 
Gift to the heart, wisdom broadened 
History held, endless heal 

The time has come, the has come to flee 
Forgiveness kept, while forgiving is not for free 

Be gone, be gone from this captive state 
Be free, your life is your own to hate 

I was alone, tension found me 
Shown was the path, peace sought freely 
Refresh your hearts eye, cleanse all your hatred 
Time to be 
Quiet your mind, you have strength you’ll see 
Pull your pride, release what you can’t foresee

The Build  

Insure, be clear the winter spreads  
Hold firm, insist that greed isn’t dead  
Truest form, timing will not be true  
Fall to sleep, the reverence is askew  

Pretend, seemly kind and just  
Defend, silence is safe and a must  
But the guilt, eats away every thought  
And denial, is justification bought  

Patrons of crooked lies  
Cannot heed wicked eyes  
Actions though seemingly kind at first  
Soon, will reveal the filth of thirst  

It shows, the weakness cannot hide  
The slip, suspicions slow with the slide  
It’s revealed, true nature consumes mask  
Now alone, head will soon take to task  

Patrons of crooked lies  
Cannot heed wicked eyes  
Actions though seemingly kind at first  
Soon, will reveal the filth of thirst  

Empathy escapes the brightest stars 
Kindness is found in the mason jars

Coarse Reaction  

Lessons in time 
Hold your coarse to the line  
And rescind ev’ry action in kind  

Balance is key  
When it’s had for a fee  
But timing once held high
Falls from trees  

Hands across melted snow  
Soon will be cursed  
Tragedy burns your pride  
It Kills your thirst  

Bringing your grit  
Is your last line to hit  
And turns words into poison dry spit  

You try your hand  
But you can’t feel the sand  
And hardship only
Gathers up in your craw for your soul to become canned  

Hands across melted snow  
Soon will be cursed  
Tragedy burns your pride  
It Kills your thirst  

I was the last one in your orbit  
That walked on eggs for reasons  
That I wish to forget  
Sudden and everlasting blisters  
Can never heal with honor  
Without lost debt 
I bend I break  
But I’m still here  
In time, I’ll heal  
I’ll shed all fear

Light Meadows 

Time fades in space senses lost 
Until you’re here 
Gone is meaning, Gone my sight 
My veneer 

I regret forgotten depth held 
Until you’re here 
Eyes glow sharp with a smile of meadows 
Vibrant skies warm inside 

Tired and worn out is the heart 
The pain is clear 
Time approaches its lost hour bleak 
Until you’re here 

Eyes glow sharp with a smile of meadows 
Vibrant skies warm inside 
Soon dismissed are the daunting shadows 
You are here, peace resides

Disarmed 

The witness talks  
These false wishes  
Now the guard drops 

But then the shroud is cast  
On this hate  
Bind refusal for regard  

Eventless mocking of the harmless daily path 
And insane trimming of the once forbidden wrath  
Intense and sadistic musings soon will be forgone  
The timing of flightless senses then to be as none  

In the eyes of tender findings  
I can see the listless kind  
On the minds of fearful tidings  
I can feel the years of harsh minds  

The grinder breaks  
Losing its mind  
Harm has come to us  

It cuts to hear the words  
Never there  
Once a feeble thought so distant  

The petty hind’ring ticking of my fleeting shell  
Resulting ageless longing present day rebel 
Forgetting the service that was once so paramount  
Remembering shelters giving fear with or without  

In the eyes of tender findings  
I can see the listless kind  
On the minds of fearful tidings  
I can feel the years of harsh minds  

Lost are all my weapons for my heart’s defense  
Damaged is the shield for my mind’s pretense 
Retreated my guard has been turned to spare dust  
Disarmed is the weapon of mass distrust  

In the eyes of tender findings  
I can see the listless kind 
On the minds of fearful tidings  
I can feel the years of harsh minds

Outsider  

I feel like the harm is just as well intended 
Find the tenderness and you’ll survive the challenge  
Lose the hateful tide that washes clear the structure  
Hurt will disappear and be replaced with balance  

Sanitation runs away from disengagement 
Yielding precious bounty and forgiven hatred 
Sending us to learn from all the past shortcomings  
Pushing pulling strength to which the noise is mated  

Cursing hands to adjust  
Giving strength to discuss  
Harbinger of harsh cuts  
Outsider among us  

Once the harm is felt we can’t escape the damage  
Time to pull the cord and just rely on instinct 
When there’s loss abound and there’s no time to react  
Give it all your worth, but stay within your precinct  

Cursing hands to adjust  
Giving strength to discuss  
Harbinger of harsh cuts  
Outsider among us  

The outsider has taken  
Our human side of making  
We must resist

The Sad Clown  

Slowly picking the bones  
Surgically he performs  
Sounds and flash, betray the tone  
Words alone won’t keep warm  

As he stares into his past sins  
His refusal begins  

Time is passing like stones  
Rough and course scrape his might  
Not long now, behold the truth  
Methods soon will pull tight  

As he stares into his past sins  
Hardly bright within  
Faced with truth, he must join  
With all his shameful kin  

Now the pressure grows thick  
Hardly time left to flee  
He becomes engorged and sick  
Born of hatred is he  

As he stares into his past sins  
Hardly bright within  
Faced with truth, he must join  
With all his shameful kin  

The frown, The crown  
The gown, The clown

Trapped  

Inside what seems a lonely shell  
Lies a soul crying out  
Finding light in a darkened cell  
Beauty is hardly what’s left to find  

In its purest the soul has clout  
For now it’s not quite sure it knows what’s there  
Grinding, scraping left to gray doubt  
Informing, alarming inside there is life to spare  

Through the shield, through the pain  
Lies a lost beauty within  
Those who know, those with main  
Brick walls must be paper thin  

Show yourself, hide no more  
Grant as if it means your life  
Hold the light, tend the store  
Silence will not pull the knife  

Deepest pain is held in so well  
And scars open up with the slightest sigh  
Stark denial no longer quells  
The longing, the safety, there is no when who or why  

Through the shield, through the pain  
Lies a lost beauty within  
Those who know, those with main  
Brick walls must be paper thin  

Show yourself, breath of life  
Fear must be shunned and abhorred  
Grace abound, cast the strife  
Empathy must be the sword

Destructive Intent

Lost rebuild 
Decisive shock 
Desire for harsh 
Construction lock 

Restrictive heads 
Controlling find 
Manipulate intent 
Repay in kind 

Animus felt 
Binding grudge 
Forget yourself 
Empathy Judge 

Hindering health 
Mindless caress 
You unleash your beast 
Destructive Intent 

Send your sigh 
Destroy the heart 
Assist your hate 
No longer a part 

What once belonged 
Is now lost time 
This ten-fold gap 
Your life defined 

How is this desire 
Where is the self 
One removes depth 
From off the shelf 

Hindering health 
Mindless caress 
You unleash your beast 
Destructive Intent
