Track Name: Summoning the Spirit
• Summoning The Spirit

I thought that you would come back
the haunting ghost of the past I had

love!
and maybe they'll all come back

I loved so much and you died
I searched so hard just to find or hide
I never once caught your eye
and if I did, you would lie in spite

love!
and maybe they'll all come back
maybe they'll find your tracks
and you won't be lost in the woods

who said that you could be mad
who said that you could react like that
I gave you all that I had
you gave me knives in the back, what class

love!
and maybe they'll all come back
maybe they'll find your tracks
and you won't be lost in the woods anymore

and here I'm dressed all in black
waiting for you to come back, chance - fat
I see reflections in glass
I get consumed with the past

Love!
and maybe they'll all come back
maybe they'll find your tracks
and you won't be lost in the woods anymore
Track Name: A Fine Mess
• a Fine mess

simple day
smile on my face
can't complain
I can't, here, today
'til you came
you ruiner of days
wiped that smile
off my face

what did I do?

simple day
smile on my face
'til you came
you ruiner

what a fine mess you've got into
what to do now, what to do
all I have left, I give to you
Karma's dead now, she's gone and used

now insane
the look is on you face
love and faith
are words that you can't say
two can play
I ain't right in the brain
wipe that smile
off your face

what did I do?

love and faith
are words that you can't say
two can play
I ain't right

what a fine mess you've got into
what to do now, what to do
all I have left, I give to you
Karma's dead now, she's gone and used

empty place
a fine mess was made
here, today
and all upside your face
you're to blame
you ruiner of days
wipe that smile off your face

what did I do?

here, today
and all upside your face
you're to blame
you ruiner

what a fine mess you've got into
what to do now, what to do
all I have left, I give to you
Karma's dead now, she's gone and used
Track Name: Turkish Prison
• Turkish Prison

from where I sit, I see
those unlike and like me
it's so lonely, despite me
talking and singing

hallelujah

and they got me diggin out a tunnel under my bed
and they got me kickin out a different kind of he-said
that's when I just leave 'em all, I leave 'em all there for dead
that's when I'm convinced I should've kept 'em out of my head

this wrought iron
it killed my very will to live

from where I've been, I say
I know what I'm saying
you're stupid to spite me
and I follow sheepishly

hallelujah

I'll come back for you
in two more full moons
if you want me to

and they got me diggin out a tunnel under my bed
and they got me kickin out a different kind of he-said
that's when I just leave 'em all, I leave 'em all there for dead
that's when I'm convinced I should've kept 'em out of my head

and they got me diggin out a tunnel under my bed
and they got me kickin out a different kind of she-said
that's when I just leave 'em all, I leave 'em all there for dead
that's when I'm convinced I should've kept 'em out of my head

I can't relate to you
you are so beautiful
well spoken and to do

to do

me I was friends with rocks
sometimes they hit the spot
knocking me out a lot

the rocks

I can't relate to you
you know I speak the truth
you know, I know you do

the truth

me, I was friends with lots
sometimes our friendships stopped
often, it hurts a lot.
Track Name: Orbit
• Orbit

how I need you, how I need you right now
glory feeds you, gravity pushes down
no more preaching, I am sure you'll find out
all this heeding, all this drifting about

in my orbit,in my orbit, such misfortune

how I've seen you, you are see-through and how
greedy kills you, cavities still can frown
no one sees you, you are way beyond clouds
does that make you? does that fix all your doubts?

in my orbit,in my orbit, such misfortune
and I'm lucky, I can still breathe, I am living

and out here, the rats, they race right past the king
while they swear they weren't in any sort of race
and they fear that you will clearly slow their pace
and then you see their wasted orbit face

and you're the one who's out of fun
daily
Track Name: Evil Twin
• Evil Twin

& with all this weight
on my head from all the days
next to you, the queen of hate
loving friends and hating faith
eyes of blue and tears of pain
loved to death by all these fakes
I am all but one today
Twin the Love, evil remains

no doubt by now I sound
like a broken record skippin'
no doubt I sound and how
like a broken record breaking

and with all the sames
in my face & in my dreams
I get lost on my own street
loving null and hating beings
eyes of red and tears of green
love inset to where it needs
I am all but what I seem
Twin the Love, you need to be

no doubt by now I sound
like a broken record skippin'
no doubt I sound and how
like a broken record breaking

& with all the pains
in my chest, the yellow green
how I cough and hate to breathe
have to get it out of me
eyes are closed and not to see
love, intense as it shall be
I am more than 2 of me
Twin the Love, it works for me

no doubt by now I sound
like a broken record skippin'
no doubt I sound and how
like a broken record breaking

like a broken record skippin'.....
Track Name: Devil Ship
• Devil Ship

who is my partner here
I drive the devil ship
you couldn't get the hint

I drive the Devil's
master of kettle
dead leaf and rattle
holster your saddle
I hide in riddles
the water's still 'n'
I couldn't drink if
I had a tongue like yours

who put the salt in tears
there's an oxymoron here
I can fly the flag of fear
Devil ship's been dead for years

nautical in the ways
she is pained of my pace
radical ain't in vain
she is laced with a stain

nautical & disgraced
she is pained of my pace
sensible & contained
she is laced with a stain

& I ride her into the darkness
& I digress

who is the skipper here
who here, then, cannot steer
don't crash the devil's ship

& don't stow away
bones & days keep me sane
stow away, keep me sane
bones in place, hide your face
stow away, keep me sane
bones & days, keep me sane
hide your face & stow away
Track Name: The Master's Robe
• The Master's Robe

I've got places to be, I'm movin
I've got spaces to need, intrusion
I've got ways to achieve, illusions

this will be simple if you walk away

where did you get the look that you are wearing right now?
would you care if I took your robe and threw it to ground?
would you pick it up and would you shoulder that, how?

I wouldn't wear that for any amount of the money
that you would give me

or maybe I would

I've got a family to feed
We can't live on the streets
I've got. This robe is my beast,

but the world is killing me...

I've got places to be, I'm movin
I've got spaces to need, intrusion
I've got ways to achieve, illusion

this will be simple if you
don't fuck with...

The Master's Robe

I've got places to see, in ruins
I've got spaces to feed, illusions
I've got patience, but speak, ensuing
I have waded the seas of freezing cold

for a robe

(look at the master's robe)
Track Name: Mirage
• Mirage

I see a mirage
as I stare blind
at the sunshine...

there you stood before me
with your blackened wings
the smoke around your head
as if we'd all been dead

for years, and years

there you sat next to me
with your widened grin
eyes like oceans' ends
oh, where have you been?

& Tears in between...

in between...

there you stood before me
head like fallen king
eyes like oceans' ends
where do I begin?

for years, and years

& Tears in between...

in between...
Track Name: God As My Copilot
• God As My Co-Pilot

no wonder why I've been fallen down
no wonder why I'm the painted clown
no wonder whys couldn't land me safe
no wonder why out of spite I strafe

engine down

and so I fly, give me wings and then
an ounce of might, you rip them out of my back
no wonder why I am crashing down
no wonder why I am counting down
no wonder why I am falling down
no wonder why I'm the painted freak

no wonder whys couldn't land me safe
no wonder why out of spite I strafe
no wonder why you feel you'll be safe

engine down
I have doubts

I am a pilot
not yet on TV
fly with the grief
and thirst of my flavor

no wonder why I've been fucking up
no wonder why this is broke as fuck
no wonder why my propellor's seized
no wonder why I'm a mess indeed

and so I fly with a drink in hand
I can't rewind so will drink 'til the end
no wonder why I'm not thinking straight
no wonder why life is that way

no wonder whys couldn't land me safe
I wonder whys fall just short of the grave
I wonder why now why do I wonder this way?

engine down
I have doubts
I see clouds
one less line shroud

I am a pilot
not yet on TV
fly with the grief
and thirst of my flavor

no wonder why I just have no faith
no wonder why I am lost in my ways
no wonder why out of spite I rage
no wonder why
no wonder why I am bound to crash
no wonder why, now why don't you wonder back?

engine down
I have doubts
I see clouds
one less line shroud
engine down
I have doubts
I see clouds
Track Name: Solitary Confinement
• Solitary Confinement

etched in the wall, days I been through
running out of the precious room
on to the next then more to do
carving reflects an intimate mood

it's solitary
it's confining

no light at all, paranoid fool
walk into walls guarded by tools
I shouldn't Hex, I shouldn't Voodoo
they'd lose their legs, me, just my view

it's solitary
it's confining

sent for you, here I know
there is a place for you
unamused, fear in tow
here is a space with views

it's more than
I'm used to
Track Name: Sky Burial
• Sky Burial

I don't know where all my heroes went
left at a time when I needed them
now I hide in rhymes and vent with pen
Gracious Pen with Power help Me....out

hero's on the news, selling all his blues
he can't save you - he's too busy fighting crime
hero's in the sky, can't he see the fire
he flew right by - he don't see me, 'bout to die
heroes are a waste, they die every day
they can't save you, they're too busy loving life

I don't know how all my heroes vent
they vent right in between saving them
I found it hard with the time I've spent
Gracious Pen with Power, help Me...Out

heroes on the tube, trading new for used
he don't like you, he's too busy saving lives
heroes of the mind, heroes lost to find
he passed right by, could care less that we will die
heroes are a waste, big sandwhich by day
how's that for faith, they're too busy fighting life
Track Name: Smoking Mirror (useless human)
• Useless Human

even when I feel I'm strong
I'm a useless human
my fear, it waivers all the time
my excuses given

even when I feel I'm wrong
I'm a useless human
my senses fail to bring me hope
and I'm trapped in your world

I don't know how to live by your rules
a world that's rich beyond it's years with fools

I wish I could do what you all do
I wish I was invincible
I wish I didn't feel inhuman
I wish I pulled the trigger years ago

even humans need love
Track Name: Fade Out
• Fade Out

& I fade out - with a bowl, like a note
& I fade out - like a ghost with a soul
& I fade out - to & fro, me the most
& I fade out - let the host take control

do you wanna fade out, or is the glow maintaining
you can soften the doubt if you choose to fade

fade...

and you don't know how broke, you borrow, it's painful
for, if we share our glow, they're hopeful and they know
but once they're entitled, they're useless, unspecial

& I fade out - I have hope & control
& I fade out - like a rose to the cold
& I fade out - time is slow, you should know
& I fade out - out is bold, in is sold

and you don't know how broke, you borrow, it's painful
for, if we share our glow, they're hopeful and they know

& I fade out - let it go, how it shows
& I fade out - like the smoke, after glow
& I fade out - get the boat, stay afloat
& I fade out - I'm the most, let us toast

do you wanna fade out, or is the glow maintaining
you can soften the doubt if you choose to fade

fade...
