Lyrics

 

Lies  

Shuffling the cards in my hands, I was in another land, where man stood tall above it all 

They pulled their world to their fingertips, but never sipped from the magic cup, licked their lips with all they possess 

God-like statues made of gold, are drinking from that broken glass, tasting nothing but the past 

And you don’t feel a thing because you had no heart to begin, the light that shines from your soul, had nowhere to go 

I’m tryin’ to see through all the lies, makes me wonder and make me wise, tryin’ to see through all the lies 

Why do we let them lead us into their world of greed? 

I feel my hands are tied can’t we see through these lies? 

Tryin’ to see through all the lies 

 

Far From Fair 

She’ll never look you in the eye, not for long anyway   

Her crippled soul makes brother joy cry   

And goes to bed with Mr Shame.   

I don’t wanna go wherever she’s been, she takes me there inevitably   

Shows me around with a terrified smile,    

And lets my bright scare death’s dark steed   

 

What do i remind her of, where does she go with me?   

I think i remind her of what she wants to be   

I’m looking through her broken pane, into her broken room   

I’d rather let her mess my world than visit her in her tomb.   

 

Ohh, it’s far from fair, yeah, it’s far from fair  

 

Seeing one so beautiful, getting so fucked around   

Sucks me down to spiteful of what she’s been living on   

I’m leaning on the tree of good faith, like it’s roots were my own   

Please don’t ask if i can wait to show you to your throne.   

 

Ohh, it’s far from fair, yeah, it’s far from fair   

 

I Won’t Crack  

I’ll climb your money mountain, and burn it from the top 

Watch my waves of peace flow, to cleanse your false parched land 

The rich man always dances, while the poor man plays in the band 

I smoked pot for a month one night and let Nature take a stand 

I won’t crack against the walls that hold me, I won’t crack against the laws that be 

If you see them all coming for me won’t you tell them to set me free 

 

Set me free 

 

Stone walls keep sinking, sinking to the sand 

As we try to shake, we try to shake, shake the corporate hand 

I’ve seen it on the street, and I’ve held it in my hand 

I can read the writing on the wall, won’t you take my hand?  

I won’t crack against the walls that hold me, I won’t crack against the laws that be 

If you see them all coming for me won’t you tell them to set me free 

Set me free 

I won’t crack 

(Don’t tell me it’s hippy shit. Better a hippy than a hypocrite) 

 

Fit to be Tied  

Time can be so ugly, make anyone feel so old   

And peace it is so fragile, wish i could find my own   

I give myself to another, have it taken so cold   

I don’t want to be burdened, love becomes my load   

 

I know this chapter’s ending, my soul has grown tired of the plot   

Time to move to another before i get myself caught   

 

I travel through my mind, paranoid about the state   

They’re calling up number, i have  to eat they make me wait   

I think of how i live my life, i wonder if i’ll be too late   

To get to what i want to find, everything but hate   

 

I know this chapter’s ending, my soul has grown tired of the plot   

Time to move to another before i get myself caught   

So much depends on others where does my freedom lie   

Time to move to another, do i look fit to be tied?   

 

So much depends on others where does my freedom lie  

Time to move to another, do i look fit to be tied?   

 

Do You Want Things to Change?   

Got a man on the tv telling me i gotta drink beer while i watch football  

Got a man on the tv telling me it won’t happen here but to watch’em kill’em all.  

He’s got a woman on the bed he don’t know what to do cause his buddies are there  

Saying take what you want because they’re scared and  

They know their god will not care, he won’t care.  

 

Do you want things to change and would you even let them?  

If you want things to change it won’t always be for the better  

 

And i’m glad i can still turn off a tv without getting shot  

Money changing hands above me ties my world into a knot  

I don’t know what goes on in a mind possessed with my riches  

If i try to say what’s true will you try to censor this, censor this.  

And i say if voting changed anything it would be illegal  

That kind of freedom is an illusion serving rich people  

 

Do you want things to change and would you even let them?  

If you want things to change it won’t always be for the better 

 

Shove it down my throat i won’t choke on it  

I won’t even hear the sound of my fear  

 

Do you want things to change and would you even let them?  

If you want things to change it won’t always be for the better  

 

Looking Forward  

I’m cut deep, and I’m trying to forget that I’m still bleeding, 

Yeah, I’m still bleeding 

Colours, as far as the eye can see 

Save us God, I’m enraged beyond belief, I was 

Disturbed by a dream last night, things turned out as they seem 

Spin ’round, catch my fall, I don’t wanna be here at all 

Silent voices saying “Tear this world down” 

I don’t want to be here at all 

 

I’m looking forward to never looking back, yes I’m 

Looking forward to never ever looking back  

I’m looking forward to never looking back again 

 

I feel like I’m flying close to the sun 

I’m writing a story, but don’t you believe me 

I wanna walk the moon in giant steps, wanna 

Walk down into my soul, down into a chasm of dreams 

Never to come out 

 

Easily I’ll climb out of this world, 

You won’t know I’m gone 

Yeah, that I’m gone 

 

I’m looking forward to never looking back 

 

Firewater  

I’m not listening, no i’m not here 

I’m just drinkin’, to chase away my fear 

Could give a fuck about all those around me 

I feel calm in the eye of the storm, that’s the way it’s meant to be 

Escape the demon, Firewater 

Killing your freedom wastes a mind that could change the world 

It’s a fools reality, it burns inside me 

Builds to destroy, turns a man into a boy 

 

I can feel it burning in my veins and I can feel no pain 

Violence pours out of my mind although it feels so strange 

 

Aces for Hearts  

Something’s missing, replaced by fiction underneath 

Someone’s hiding, the shaded view’s too hard to see 

Control, control from a hand that slaps before it feeds you 

 

I tried to put my faith in you, you just abused it 

You’re playing Russian roulette with our lives 

 

All these fabled lives, thieves and their wives they’re pulling 

Aces for Hearts 

Iron-collar martyr tryin’ to be my father, they’re pulling 

Aces for Hearts 

 

Blind 

Pulling desire from the sky, it’s not there 

God only says what you want to hear 

The reddest of wines has left me drunk again  

And I know that God isn’t here  

Daylight comes, leaves me blind 

Daylight comes it leaves me blind 

There’s a prophet with a shopping cart, and he says 

“God’s a mirror in your eyes” 

I stared back at him, watched his eyes begin 

To shine, so bright, it left me blind 

Daylight comes, it leaves me blind 

A Goddess is busking out on the street 

I stop to listen to her song 

She sings about peace and love, she’s singing to the sky 

She’s a savior and she knows it 

Daylight comes, leaves me blind 

Daylight comes it leaves me blind 

 

Brand New Day 

Today i wrote a letter to an old friend saying goodbye and i don’t know why   

Tomorrow i’ll take the letter, put it in a box and send everything away   

It’s one of those tricky things no one ever tells you about   

you end up in a situation and you just can’t get out, get out.   

 

This day i look around, it still seems clear   

How a horrible thing is the only thing to do   

No one else can help me now, it’s washed away   

I’d trade this feeling for a brand new day   

 

So do today what ails you most   

Won’t go away, it draws you close   

I feel this way, suspected, feared, the most of all these thoughts preceding this dark act.   

 

So now i’ve sent the letter, i haven’t heard back   

Your silence is thunder as the days roll on   

I suppose it might end there, it seems unfinished   

Maybe in time i’ll understand   

 

So do today what ails you most   

Won’t go away, it draws you close   

I feel this way, suspected, feared, the most of all these thoughts preceding this dark act.   

 

Juniors’ Revolution 

Triumphant pose of a mortal man, appearing as a god to a nation of sheep  

Devoting his life to powerful plans, practiced and versed at the art of deceit  

He killed the real god with a light in his eye  

Then mirrored the surface of a natural truth  

Bastardized happiness of a rotting sick mind is easier to swallow than peace as a virtue  

 

Throws bread and wine to the peasants below,   

Then smiles as they fight in the sewage and the mud  

They say thank you lord with a whispering sound,  

Not seeing his hand on the warm smoking gun  

I see child in his eyes without love,   

Reflecting daddy’s hand coming down on his heart  

Mommy just watches from the tv land above,   

Ruler of the kingdom has said his part.  

 

Juniors’ revolution  

Juniors’ revolution   

Juniors’ revolution has finally come  

 

You say you’ll lend this nation a helping hand  

Farmers won’t starve in the cold winter months  

Then you turn around and ask your silent money man  

“What we gonna do with the public funds”  

Son you’re gonna grow up to be just like your old man  

And i don’t want to see you leader of this land  

So now you’re there on top of mountain high  

Why should i care? your fortune isn’t mine  

 

Juniors’ revolution  

Juniors’ revolution  

Juniors’ revolution has finally come  

 

Slow 

Slowed by your eyes, i don’t know why you want to  

Look in your veins, feel all the pain that haunts you  

Do you feel wise? look at your arm it wants you   

Give it a try, feel your white spirit turn blue  

 

I knew you then and i knew what you’d want to be  

Your own best friend, like the conscience that floats inside me  

Will you agree? it’s an all too common story  

Stuck in between being alive and sorry, ahh i’m sorry  

 

I thought i was looking for you, but i was finding me  

What do you think you would do  

If someone set you free?    

Someone set you free  

 

I don’t feel clean   

After i’ve bathed  

In your pain  

 

Slowed by your eyes, i don’t know why you want to do your cocaine  

Snow on your soul it freezes it  

Do you feel wise? feel your heart race it hates you  

I hear you sigh, apologize to your body yeah your body  

 

I thought i was looking for you, but i was finding me  

What do you think you would do  

If someone set you free?    

Slowed by your eyes  

 

Trippin’ Hard 

I’ll give my pride a cigarette, talk my dry into being wet 

Watch my eyes turn a sunset red, see a mirror in my head 

I’ll look back at my how and why, tell my where to please not cry 

My courage has gotten very shy, my will won’t even begin to try 

I’m calling you from above, it’s brighter here than our love  

You look down on me from below, gravity gives you a shove 

You speak in riddle and mystery, you know I understand anyway 

How can this be without pain? Your words fall on my heart 

Like rain 

Tracers chase my cigarette in the dark as smoke wraps ‘round your head 

And fills your dreams with thoughts of me, tomorrow you will have seen 

That I’ve been, that I’ve been  

Too tired to sleep, too high to weep 

I’m trippin’ hard on what you keep 

Too high to talk, too stoned to walk 

I’m trippin’ hard on what you keep
