1. SOMBER THEME (Where Are You?)

To the four corners and beyond
From the ghettos to the farms
Babies born / Babies die
Poor are broken / Rich are strong

Where are you?

There still are lies / And always truth
Hershey Bars and Baby Ruth's
Power's both weak and strong
For one right / There's plenty wrongs

Where are you?

Choices made / Even if not to choose
Deciding when or what to use
Wars will start / Wars will end
Pending on which side will bend

Where are you?

Hiding in a glass asylum
Living on and off your own kind
Ignore the world around you
Hoping for a new mankind

Medicine cures / Disease kills
Desert sands / And grassy hills
Grace abounds / Yet so does sin
But not for you in your world within

Where are you?

Close your eyes so you can see
The river flooded with mercy
There's so much more that we could do
Break the glass between me and you

Electric blue / translucent green
There's more than what our eyes have seen
A world of love / A world of hate
Bleeding hearts / For you they wait

Where are you?


2. LINDSEY

Lying on the floor /
She could't sleep again
Staring at the ceiling /
Trying to forget the pain

The love she found was so short lived
What she needed /
They couldn't give
Love they said "mask's" a multitude of sin
But in their eyes /
She couldn't win

Lindsey recalls the questions fine
But in her eyes /
She cannot lie
Accusating fingers stand in line
But in her heart she begs the question why?

Sweet is the sound of grace
But her eyes were blinded /
When she looked into his face
Passion played into her heart
Colliding with mercy /
He played the part
And now he's gone /
Only left his seed
On looking for more to feed his greed
Alone & lonely she sighs /
Compromised her vows
Right under their eyes

The stares begin /
She's called their bluff
Arms once wide /
Are now folded up
The "whore's" cast out /
She caused the ?pure? to fall
They might have left her /
But she still hears the call

Lindsey recalls the questions fine
But looking back /
She cannot lie
When the longest hour had arrived
No one was there to hear her cry...


3. NOT TOO GOOD 4 ME

[1]

The changing times have caused me to see me for what I am
But I know you /
You taught me oh so well to just ignore
Ignore the things my heart beats for

Life with you /
It's complicating - like a crowded room
I thought you had died /
But with morning rise I see your still alive

[chorus]

And I can't let go /
Even though I know your not too good for me
It's a terrifying flight /
When darkness over rides her light
But I can't let go /
Won't let go /
Can't let go
Even though I know your not too good for me.

[2]

The time's we've had /
Were so much fun and me I loved to laugh
But something's wrong /
My rebirth came and said that we can't last
Cut the cord and place you in the past

But I still love /
The things we did together once before
And now I'm torn /
Between new life & an open sore

[chorus]

And I can't let go /
Even though I know
Your not too good for me
It's a never ending flight /
That only leads me through the night
But I can't let go /
Must let go /
Can't let go
Even though I know your not too good for me


4. ANYMORE

Too much time on my hands
I've learned to love the night
It's disguised itself to appear like the light

Takes me by the hand
And reminds me that a wrong is sometimes right

And I know the state I'm in can't last
But the closet's bursting with the force of rage
From the demons in my past

And she stands and stares with eyes of disbelief
And makes me feel so alone
Awaiting to relive the sight unseen
From the seeds that I once sowed

But that's not me anymore
I've sought and I've grown
But that's not me anymore


5. BOOK ENDS

Forming the water around me /
I was protected from the truth
Innocent cries /
A child's closed eyes /
How I was to know
A normal life growing up /
Taught wrong from right /
The does & don'ts
Then the world's sphere got off it's spin /
And threw me in a new mold

I'm on the shelf
At 15 I fell in love /
And ran away from life
I didn't know how to feel /
But what I felt sure felt right
5 years later /
I met this girl /
And she showed me the light
The plot twists and turns /
Leaving one for the other
In order to be saved?

Now I stare at the readings of my life
Page after page /
They don't paint a pretty picture of me
Eyes wide /
As I pull another book from off the shelf
When does the heartache end /
Of a life torn between
These 2 book ends

Life is a tale told by a fool /
Signifying nothing
I thought what I did was right /
By leaving the past behind
But now all I see is a trail of pain and misery
So I beg you to search your heart /
Or might your books read like these

Now they stare at the readings of my life
Page after page /
They don't paint a pretty picture of me
Eyes wide /
As they pull another book from off the shelf
When does the heartache end /
Of a life torn between
These 2 book ends...


6. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

[written by David Bowie]

Weaving down a byroad
Sing the song
That's my kind of highground
Gone wrong
My-my
Smile at least
You can't say no to
The beauty and the beast

Something in the night
Something in the day
Nothing is wrong
But darling, something's in the way

There's laughter in the air
Protest on the wind
Someone else inside me
Someone could get skinned
How???

My-my
Someone fetch a priest
You can't say no to
The beauty and the beast
Darling

I wanted to /// believe me
I wanted to be good
I wanted no distractions
Like every good boy should

Nothing will corrupt us
Nothing will compete
Thank God Heaven left us
Standing on our feet

My-my
The beauty and the beast


7. MAKE MY BED IN HELL

I look at the ocean /
Oh so cold & black
It's never ending mystery
I look at the sky /
So polluted & cracked
A reflection of the sea
I'm closed in /
No where to turn
The four sides of this river have my mind in a swirl
All alone /
And I hear my heart breaking
The end result from all that I'm taking

But I know

If I make my bed in hell /
You're with me
If I dwell in the depths of the sea /
You are there

Reality check /
Is coming down
Sweat pouring off my face like rain from the clouds
I feel it coming /
Oh yes but I can't see it yet

My eyes are waterlogged from this yoke of oppression
My God / Let me hear Your voice
A sense of doubt remains /
My life becoming a void

I'm slipping

If I make my bed in hell /
I know You're with me
If I dwell in the depths of the sea /
You are there
If I chose the darkest corridor of time
It's only cause I was blind
But I feel the edge of the mercy shores
And it tells You are with me


8. THE RED ROOF

From up here it all looks the same to me
A different point of view is what I know I need
What you say

I look around this sea of souls
But all I see is one face
The eyes all blend into one color
There are no features to trace
The more one looks
The more one's drawn
To simply stay away
But I can't wait to leave this top
And be with You in the start of a new day

But for now I just sit here on my red roof
Looking for Your face /
But the clouds are in the way
And still I stay here longing on my red roof
I wait for You to steal me away

The days drag pass me /
And I hear the clock ticking in my head
The weather is muggy /
As I make the shingles of my bed
The air is hot /
But I feel fine -
When I hear the breathing of her wind
Though it feels like I will never see You once again

I close my eyes and I drown in thoughts
That swirl in my head
Waiting for you...

But for now I just sit here on my red roof
Looking for your face /
But the clouds are in the way
And I still stay here longing on my red roof
I wait for you to steal me away.


9. IN-U

The day light is coming
But it's borrowing that gets me down
But I know He's coming
For it's He that gave my sight & sound

I was trying to get out of here
By following an aspiring dream
Of living life large in this scene
It was then I awoke

The daylight is coming
But it's borrowing that gets me down
I don't lie to you
But I know He's coming
For it's He that gave my sight & sound
My sight & sound

I looked around and saw I was poor
With a stack of bills that came from the store
So I grabbed the Holy Book from my room
And I read that I was rich... in U
I know that He sees when I cry
And I know that he hears when I sigh
Life will be complete - when I see your face

The daylight is coming
But it's borrowing that gets me down
I don't lie to you
But I know He's coming
For it's He that gave my sight & sound
My sight & sound

Ain't it funny how it is
Just when I thought my life was through
It was then that I found my faith
in the fact that I believe...

in U
