Preach To The Hurting

So over head needing to find a reason
Harsh snakes crawl beneath the ground.
I’m so tired I couldn’t go another round
But the arm swings violent to the ground

Waiting Waiting for…
(Honesty)

 

Warm bright everything, Preach to the hurting of a heart
(I know, I know, you know I know)

Lost like anything, Brothers conversing in the car
(You know, you know, I know you know, how it feels)

 

Get better permitting the will to seize it
Some days find you on the ground
While still breathing I think I’ll go another round
And the words keep searching for a sound

Waiting waiting for…
(Honesty, Honestly)

Warm bright everything , Preach to the hurting of a heart
(I know, I know, you know I know)

Lost like anything, Brothers conversing in the car
(You know, you know, I know you know)

Feels like memory, speak of a yearning from afar
(So far, so far from where we are)

Dreamt like anything, brothers rehearsing in the car
(A Dream, a dream from where we are)

Warm bright everything
(Feels like memory)

Must be light.

LITTLE WHIP

Oh My, get your heartache outta my sight
Said your mother to you as a a child
It never felt right

But me like a little one gotta admit
I confused that whip with a shovel
And I'll dig, dig, dig.

 

Oh my, get your plain face outta my mind
Said that stranger to you as a child
It never felt right
An elegant knife

 

But me like a little one gotta admit
I confused that whip with a shovel
And I'll dig, dig, dig.

WHAT YOU DESIRE

Nighthawk diner man, blueberries and cinnamon
Cup of coffee, cream to fuel the fire.
Cigarette in hand, reading some instruction manual
You could be what you desire.

Everyday I’m getting further and further away.

Start to consider it, what you desired isn’t this.
Not even little bit, you’re the umpire in somebody else's game,
And you better quit.

Sweat faced counter woman, dreaming of a love that’s coming
half regretting having read the flyer.
Watching silver soda can, underneath the ceiling fan
Half consumed and left there to perspire.

Everyday I’m getting further and further away.

Start to consider it, what you desired isn’t this.
Not even little bit, you’re the umpire in somebody else’s game,

You better quit as soon as you can.
You can.

NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS GOING TO SATISY YOU

Sad, sullen retreat Sad, don’t go there
Sad, rinse and repeat Sad, don’t go there.

Tell me, cause I’ll ask once more, We could be as common as a grocery store
Memories of a headache man fading and degrading in a heap of sand
Oh, we could be the crumbs in a packet of chips Learning,

Nothing is in this world is gonna satisfy you, anymore.

Strike me, Like an unlit match Handy for a minute till the wood burns black
Hungry, making headaches man Fading and degrading in a foreign land Oh, he could be the dirt on a pallet of bricks, learning

Nothing is in this world is gonna satisfy you, anymore.

But every second every minute we reflect a different image

LOVERS ON A HOSPITAL WING

Find myself in a forest
With a child who likes to shriek
Giving some watch a polish
From A time I’m trying to keep

Oh it’s a boy, you can tell by the blood in his cheeks
Born for Employ, live and die on the pleasure it seeks.

Oh my god give him ego,
keep afloat through the harsh of the sea
All my life through a window
Like the lovers on a hospital wing.

Found myself in the hard bits
Through the pain and past the hurt
Clinging on tight to darkness
All the anger made it worse

Oh it’s a phase, you can tell by the smoke in his eyes
Sleep through the days, Seeking pleasure till the moment it dies

Don’t forget your loved ones, you’re loved son.

DARLING COME HOME

Speak to me my wise old friend, comfort me while I pretend
I Never wished to be this thin, my body ate itself again
Invent my demons send them forth, see what comes of being bored. Thomas darling won’t you come home
You’ve got a strong love pushing in the dark rough
Helping you through.

SUFFER THROUGH THE BLEED

It will slip the gate it will smoke it’s cigarette
And finish the day with heavy heart
It will lose it’s place, and struggle in silhouette
Stumbling its way back to the start

Caught up in the name
Something on your mind
Will it be okay
Everything is fine

It will take some time to figure out what it is

What it is you need, suffer through the bleed
Maybe it’s the greed, covering up the grief

I know it’s hard when your heart is hard.

It will try to change, it will clammer for clarity
Underneath the weight of heavy heart.

Caught up in the name
Something on your mind
Will it be okay
Everything is fine

It will do it’s best to figure out what it is

What it is it takes, suffer through the break
Maybe it’s hate, covering up the ache.

DUMB BIRD

So I do, I care who cares
everyone's got cross to bear
me and all these folks wanna die at once.

So I’m scared, who cares I’m scared
my heart barely seems aware
woken from the dream, never seems enough.

If it’s okay with you Horace,
wanna make it all the way to seventies
if it’s okay I’ll be honest
just to talk it through is maybe all I need
and some room to breathe.

So I drink, I think I drink
Dampen down that feeling sink
Squashing poor dumb bird who just want’s to sing.

So I try, I smile, I’ve tried
pat my back for getting by
Never wanna know what tomorrow brings.

If it’s okay with you Horace,
wanna make it all the way to seventies
if it’s okay I’ll be honest
just to talk it through is maybe all I need
and some room to breathe.

SAVE ME CAKE

Save me cake on the day
I’ll show up drunk and brave
Try and explain, myself again.
Is it because this was a test I feel like I’m failing, though I do my best

If you won’t save it for me don’t you save it for someone else I want it myself

Give me over to love
Learn me how no talk rough
I say it’s tough, enough is enough
Is it because this is a test I feel like I’m Failing, though I do my best

I’ll go quietly silent bye bye’s
Neat and nicely, hold it inside
A beautiful bride.
Oh no, I’d die if you cried

If you won’t save it for me don’t you give it to someone else I want it myself.

A LAZY KIND OF PAIN

Oh my God, take it away
Oh my God away

So I stay, I complain It aint worth the minute
Everyday, all the same
Stick below the limit
Even though, nothing’s changed I make friends with all of it
Stuck in hole, deep and strange
Friend and foe familiar

Oh my God, Take it away
Oh my God away.

Lazy Pain, blinding Shame
You’ve just lost your shadow
Darling heart, it’s okay you just need to know
If it helps, I can stay
I can be your shadow
Darling heart, you’re okay
You just need to know

Oh my God, Take it away
Oh my God away.

I can’t see so clearly Not anymore, what it was like before.

TERRIFIED

Super I guess I’ll stay home tonight
Kamikaze bird has taken flight
And when the wings come off
I'll say

I can’t make you different then you are
But I liked you much better
Back when you were terrified and scarred
You were sad and so leathered
Make me happy.

Fickle fingered fool your time’s run out
Spew some shit excuse from out your mouth
Just because I dance don’t mean I want
To get into their pants to talks enough
But when the words run out
You'll say

I can’t make you different then you are
But I liked you much better
Back when you were terrified and scarred
You were sad and so leathered
Make me happy.

EAT MORE. WORK MORE. BE MORE.

Leaving isn’t so hard is it dear? 
You could be the hardest part of it, all of it,
I could be what you need, when you need, if you pleased

Eat More. Work More. Be More.

Living makes the heart hard, only if
You’re focused on the hardest part of it, all of it.
I could be what I dreamed, when I dreamed, if I pleased

Eat More. Work More. Be More.

And I want to and I will do and I want to so I will do

21st CENTURY CHILD

Maybe, just maybe,
I’ve made a mistake about how much I want to be involved
Forgive me, forgive me
I’ve been all over the shop
Searching for a delicate way to say I’m sorry

I know on Monday I’ll probably change my mind
And the only sure thing, is a sure thing’s hard to find

Lately, Oh Lately, 
I’ve been thinking about How much I really need my sadness
Lazy, feeling lazy,
All these people about
Who seem to already be past it

But I know on Monday I’ll probably change my mind
And the only sure thing, is a sure thing’s hard to find

But I hate the sound of myself when I’m being honest
Sounds like somebody else, and I don’t wanna listen
To the whining's of a 21st century child
And I’ve struggled with how others perceive me
And I can’t tell If I’m better or just better at deceiving
So I’ll keep going, 'til I’m caught out.

There’s blood on my sheets, but you know I don’t mind.
I’m drawn to the dark things, and you’re a part of the light
