Back To Me

Original and similar lyrics
She come runnin' back to me arms wide open like she loved me. I guess this makes about the fifteenth time she's tried to let me go. And ain't it funny how she walked away, all the times that she shoulda stayed. But loved never mattered to her anyway if it did she'd be here today [Chorus:] I'm gettin back to me Yeah momma swore it never was meant to be and daddy said to momma just let him be cause there's certain things a boy can't see till he becomes a man a ball cap, t-shirt, back into my worn out jeans I thank go that she couldn't see she never ever saw the real me and I don't miss the way things used to be. Now that I'm back to me, this farms too far from the city lights, not a life that I wanted but she made me try so I made her work so she wouldn't cry. I think I'll find me a fishin pole and go on down to my favorite hole I'm back to talkin to god cause I know he knows about heart break, and dirt road and a fishin pole [Repeat Chorus Twice] I'm back to me..... She come runnin back to me, arms wide open like she loved me. I guess this makes about the sixteenth time she's tried to let me go...

Razed To The Ground

ARCHIVE "Controlling Crowds"
The unassailable leading me down the wide path, I consider the scale the whole aftermath, from the land I sketch a grand design, a being in time, message the floodlight will shine, divine skies will open, open road chosen pausing in time frozen, best left unspoken, about the life settling down, steadily lowered into the ground the sound is quite deafening, confounded regiments getting hounded out, never better the fallout of the sidesplitter, rise of the switch-hitter, watch as he grows bitter, foreseeable futures they be selling him down the river, purified and maybe when we refine and say, you'll be hearing him coming from half a mile away, contemplation still thinking it over onward we soldier clearer than present danger, us we as a planet handing arms to the generations down the line what is left behind? Conscience cannot carry the weight of consequence, says a voice who then utters a vote of confidence, see the level of minerals going down to ground zero, nothing can be stopping declines cycle, wheels turn the sucking it dry desert, but the oceans wave is on the rise in front of your eyes, paralysed you’re rooted into the spot, you can’t move the rot is setting in at a rate of knots. So far from the truth, unavoidable proof revelations will raise the roof, the revolutions will be televised to sensationalise and destabilise, I'm wide eyed aware and wiser to the scandal, it is too much for one man to handle, stand together we might stand a hope in hells chance or else a threatening fate waits.

Sleep

JOHN FRUSCIANTE "Enclosure"
Deep asleep Need some waking up Time can't see what he does to us Shadows fall asleep Thank you, thank you Mind and body breathe Thanks Bastard son is in my eyes It takes wholes of lives to see things right I'm the opening of tides There is open and there's open from the other side Intertwined one in another goes Reassigned souls in flattened time Sad as we are blind I love you, I love you As ifs actual The pains flows through Swelling space inside a window Something's there when "God" and "oh" share height or rate In the old Encino term There is one who separates, in between and low as dirt Living scene It's what goes up and down Along a street inner vision only sees Ahh place me there I'm with you, I'm with you Life takes me anywhere The blues we share And duration builds its climb You can count on me to darken light In the fields of flowers burned There is one down below, straight beneath who never learns In a need you peel the self from the bones I say Irritate til you're not needed anymore It's war Living things have a meaning all their own Breathing sings to the soul like Marian Anderson

Father Figure

If Hope Dies "Siege Equipment for Spiritual Decline"
yeah, you're the king snake gliding through the grass all attempts to catch you have ended in empty grasps you slid into our hearts' and unleashed your venemous tongue it's now more than i can stand to see you continue on ever the sarcastic one, i can see your forked tongue flicker between your lips tasting the wind finding someone else to lie to again bearing nothing but an armful of empty promises your arms spread wide open with a dagger's embrace i won't believe your poisoned words ever again i can't manage to look you in your eyes now, without trying to burn a hole right through your head these every day masquerades only serve to make my heart sick yeah, you're the king snake gliding through the grass all attempts to catch you have ended in empty grasps you slid into our hearts' and unleashed your venemous tongue it's now more than i can stand to see you continue on your arms spread wide open with a dagger's embrace i won't believe your poisoned words ever again i can see right through you ever the sarcastic one, i can see your forked tongue flicker between your lips tasting the wind finding someone else to lie to again bearing nothing but an armful of empty promises your continued existence is meaningless someday you'll learn of all the pain you've made and i hope that realization will bring you to your knees that you have led a life hurting those who could have loved you most your continued existence is meaningless i can't manage to look you in your eyes now without trying to burn a hole right through your head these everyday masquerades only serve to make my heart sick oh yeah, you're the great deciever your arms spread wide open, with a poisoned embrace i won't believe your poisoned words ever again

Runnin'

Crystal Lewis "Beyond the Charade"
Runnin' in and out of time Spendin' every dime Feeling all alone at night Wonderin' if its all so right And every day you work so hard Playin' every single card (But)Deep inside you search for more Can you find an open door? Who is it for? (Chorus) Runnin' when there's not a finish line Stop your runnin' your just runnin' out of time Settle down and catch your breath Before you run yourself to death There is nothing you can hide He's always been there by your side It's something only you can choose You haven't got a thing to lose If you let go, he'll give you more You're atnding at an open door You know who it's for Runnin' when there's not a reason why Runnin' you're just runnin' for a lie (Chorus)

Running Back To You

Commissioned
Verse 1: How can you forgive me when I've often gone astray how can You think of me when I do things my way Turning my back from You the One who loved me first having my own desires renewing worldly thirst Verse 2: You told me You loved me and I should make up my mind You tell me come back now But I keep wasting time Feeling so very weak You say I can be strong I feel I've gone too far You tell me to come home You love me still and I know this is real. Chorus: And I am running back to You I see You're standing there for me Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more You're standing there for me and I am running back to You Why did I go away When I know I am no good when I'm on my own Verse 3: You told me you could keep me but I've turned it away I've failed you so much now I don't know what to say Using the same excuse That I am just a man You tell me You've been there and show your nailed, scarred hands So I can see Now I know I am free Chorus: And I am running back to You I see You're standing there for me Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more You're standing there for me and I am running back to You Why did I go away When I know I am no good Bridge: I have taken advantage of Your love & grace Forgive me Lord and take me home Take me home Tag: I'm running to you Jesus Please take me home See, I've been in this wrong way too long and I can't do right anymore I'm tired of pain and I don't like fear but Lord I want to be more sincere I never should have left Your side return me to Your guiding light You're standing there for me and I'm running back to you
