All hailstorms in to die for my sins, why am I accursed and not believing, death to damnation both forced arrest, enforced interrogation duress fire question, pressure point temple brainwashed disciple, shooting at me with a holy water pistol, I am not a heathen I'll give you the reason, ten commandments and ten counts of treason, they can pass judgements while I plead, ignorance self defense dollars pounds and pence, because we live inside the age feelings hard to gauge, I just open up the book and keep turning the page, while the all powerful throwback to miracle, whips up the storms and pestilent swarms, sacrifice to appease the deity, whilst heavens open up just to seize the enemy, wiped out civilisations, desolate barren landscapes genocides, creation, but mad scientists wildly experiment, drawing the conclusion down into the sediment, to the dark hour seed is sown, now on there will be light via fire and brimstone, walls fall down but emerge from the ground as if to start over, rebuild the structure, true to life adventure, even while your breathing lung puncture, nothing out there to protect you, so they look into the skies the cries can be heard, the word is obscene unwashed and unclean, wreaking havoc for the hell of it, whilst digging deep and developing a taste for it, bloodthirsty craves screams for mercy, highly unlikely, feel the almighty crash, alas hope all evaporates incinerate burns out and obliterates, keep the faith in more ways than one, or believe me and mark my words thy will be done. Praying not for the cynical quick stepping left right, pick up as they march upon the pinnacle, clocking up the watch stop digital, trying to make peace while they'd rather make base and erase the place they found, lies written all over the face wonder why, feeling immortality fearing they’re afraid to die, sly snakes sidewind and enter your mind, finding temptation insecurity and frustration, hating anger lusts after fear as half the man dies whilst shedding the tear, a clear sign that it's way past the time, to rebuild the bleeding heart that lies broken, well I must be mistaken but I more than feel that a chance is not taking consideration for the non believer plagued by diseased why? Nothing but an open mind is what I try and maintain, hand on heart keep alive in dying art, pick it up dust it down make a start and bring it round. Pray to God blaspheme one can only dream, crucify and ask why either do or die.

Wasted Time

EAGLES "Hotel California"
Well baby, there you stand With your little head, down in your hand Oh, my God, you can't believe it's happening again Your baby's gone, and you're all alone and it looks like the end. And you're back out on the street. And you're tryin' to remember. How will you start it over You don't know what became. You don't care much for a stranger's touch, But you can't hold your man. You never thought you'd be alone this far down the line And I know what's been on your mind You're afraid it's all been wasted time The autumn leaves have got you thinking about the first time that you fell You didn't love the boy too much, no, no you just loved the boy to well, Farewell So you live from day to day, and you dream about tomorrow, oh. And the hours go by like minutes and the shadows come to stay So you take a little something to make them go away And I could have done so many things, baby If I could only stop my mind from wondrin' what I left behind and from worrying 'bout this wasted time Ooh, another love has come and gone Ooh, and the years keep rushing on I remember what you told me before you went out on your own: 'Sometimes to keep it together, we got to leave it alone.' So you can get on with your search, baby, and I can get on with mine And maybe someday we will find , that it wasn't really wasted time Mm,hm Oh hoo, ooh, ohh, Ooh,ooh, mm

Yeah It seems like the world is testin me Will I conquer or will it get the best of me Half of the world sees success in me The half other is second guessin me But I kid you not don't mess with me Cause I think I got something possed in me No matter what I'm gonna give whats left in I didn't choose this life it was destiny Now I'm feelin like I might go psycho Stand back cause I'm feelin like I might blow Slim chance but I'm puttin up a fight though They tell me this the wrong path but I know its right though I'm Bout to pick up the world and shake it Throw it to the ground and laugh as I break it Let the whole world know that I'm gonna make it And if you don't give it to me then I'm gonna take it BEAST MODE I'm IN BEAST MODE Gunnin for the top cock back reload I'm a new man with a new attitude But don't get me wrong I'm still me though I'm all in now, I ain't bluffin I risk everything regret nothin My determinations disgustin So everyday my ass I'm bustin Lemme take ya back, break it down Just a couple more months then college bound Got a scholarship, my bags were packed Then my world turned upside down When I got that phone call so shockin I thought my heart was stoppin Are you serious? this a one in life time opportunity knockin But wait, what now? I thought I had my life figured out Everything I was once sure about was now skepticizim and doubt Almost lose control lost sanity Meanwhile my friends abandoned me I felt lost in the world for a little bit I had nobody but my family But I bounced back and got in the zone Last nights just me and the microphone My friends were off at college while I was right here sittin here at home They were partying I was cuttin tracks They were goin out I was makin stacks This the road I choose so you know I'm gonna walk it proudly and never look back Now fast forward a couple years Most of my fears have dissapreaed After the blood the sweat the tears I dedicate this right here To all my nonbelievers and haters You'll doing me nothin but favors Keep talkin, I can't hear you Someone go get me a translator It used to get to me, to the old me Think you can do it better? then show me Those who know me least have the most say Don't judge me if you don't know me Whether I'm a billioanire or flat broke You think that matters? is that a joke If you ain't got talent, you really think the money will get you anywhere? nope Oh you wanna play music monopoly Ive mastered the game no toppin Takin over the world why the money adds up I'm just passin go theres no stoppin me I worked so hard, I earned it Its mine now and ill never return it Ima do it, Ima do it so damn big Everyday my fans confirm it So blast off I'm outta here Outta this world to the atmosphere So long, I'm gone Beena hell of a ride what a year This just the start the beginnin The top of the very first innin No need for a call to the bull pen bottom of the 9th and ill still be winnin What I went through, it was worth it all All the times being pinned up against the wall Tryin to please my family friends and fans When its all said and done after all I gotta do whats right for me I gotta chase after this dream I'm so proud of us how we far came Me and my whole damn team Yeah I'm just doin my best For real I feel so blessed I think somebodys watchin over me Tell me world did I pass your test Did I do this right? please tell me I need you now, please help me Cause life don't come with no manual I played the cards that you dealt me My life is on the line, everytime I rhyme Always on my grind, 24/7 So much on my mind, someone please remind Me that I'll be fine, where am I headin To da fans, my life I owe you So close to my heart I hold you But to anyone who ever doubted me Im so proud to say that I told you

Set The Prairie On Fire

SHAWN COLVIN "Matter of Minutes"
Full full moon and That same sad nature I wanna cover every inch of you Like ink on paper Like the blind parade of souls Consumed by religion I can't wait 'til I get you In that defenseless position Chorus: When we set the prairie on fire Oh we go down to the water Naked and slow You and me And the heart of desire We set the prairie on fire How hard will the wind blow How far will it go When the feeling burns down To one solitary color The velocity of longing Melting into each other It's a song our fingers play All at once and together You can bet we never learned it But we've known it forever Oh I dreamed that we were flying Carried up from the ashes Black silhouettes of velvet Against the crimson of passion We can almost hear the echoes From the smoldering meadow It's the rapture of the angels And the rage of the devil Chorus In the cool dusk of horses Through the rusted wires of sleep With our arms around midnight We're headed for release We go riding in the wind We go riding in the dark Go riding, riding Chorus

Mr. Doctor

Devil Doll
While on the surface Light and shade take turns And smile and tears And fair and ugly Saint and nasty And the monstrous Is just the different: Tiny crack in the globe's perfection Down there swarms excess: Where exception is the rule And the loathsome Spreads always Unexplored dimensions And sundry doors Open on the magma: The black holes In the terrible adventure Of each night Whose irrational daring Springs only From the ignorance Of danger The doors open wide And streams of unknown Flow into the sleep The unnameable Gave me the axe To lop off the head Sever the limbs Disguise coldly And throw away My brother Lights often keep secret hypnosis Sleeping down - There - In the dark Undead is whoever Can wait eternally In ambush Ready to seize With the fangs'. Slowly the phantoms (Re)Ascend Creeping through The grey canals Silently riding The wings of reality The mischievous glance Speedily flares While pure and deranged My poor little sister I deflower; Or drive the red - My red - Soaking blade Into the boring beloved Old benefactress' heart And when the fog Starts to unreel And the obscure gulfs Are covered again As if nothing Had ever happened And yet the unaware people Smile at me raising their hats: Mr. Doctor! . And when the open wide eyes Revisit Every damned Endless moment I set out Across the pebbles Worn out Laying my read I stare at the lights For the list time Two lights On the tracks
