TWO LIVES

Nostalgic Memory

There was a time

Possibilities were endless

But I was too scared

To take that leap

I thought I understood

I thought I could

 

I want to know what it’s like 

 

The time is ours

We are the ones

The ones who carry the weight

Coasting along

Making no waves

I’m destined inside

But there is not enough time

 

Every day on repeat

Is this how it has to be?

I had so many dreams 

Now it all feels make believe

 

Ascend through the ceiling

Mind separates body

Drift into another space

I can’t escape this feeling

I want to know what it’s like (two lives)

I want to know what it’s like (colliding)

 

The time is ours 

We are the ones 

The ones who carry the weight

Coasting along

Making no waves

I’m destined inside

But there is not enough time 

 

I want to know what it’s like two lives, I want to know what it’s like

RADON

Remember 1921

Modernized under the gun

What will it take? For you to see

It's right there, Greed. 

 

You’ve taken everything

Pushed them away, the sins of yesterday

To be forgotten

Pretend like we're not there, nothing else compares

 

Like a mountain we stand firm

Reaching out with our heart on our sleeves

 

It took almost 50 years

For you to finally see

With fingers in both ears

Accepting death.

 

Greed through blind eyes

Turned your back as one more dies

One more, Kettering 

Fueled by lead

So many lost, too many dead

They've paid the cost

The impact’s appalling

All because of you

 

Fueled by lead

So many lost, too many dead

They’ve paid the cost

The impact appalling 

All because of Kettering, Kettering, Kettering

DREAMS

Watching in slow motion

I read between the lines

This life that we lead

Isn’t like the movies

 

Lost in disappointment

Disdain is your enjoyment

Can we find ourselves?

Between lies and fake

 

Where am I?

I can’t find myself

Is this really happening?

The plans we made

Are the dreams that never came,

no they never came

 

Seeking connection

Nothing seems real

Everything feels surface

We’re hiding the way we feel

 

Where am I?

I can’t find myself

Is this really happening

The plans we made

Are the dreams that never came,

no they never came

Losing your form your embrace

It’s so warm, my escape

Where did you go?

Isn’t that your glow?

Ghosts walking among us

Show me its blasphemous

 

This life we lead

Isn’t like the movies

Seeking Connection

Seeking Connection

CROSSED

Tell me things
That I want to hear
Watching you undress
Temptress
I’ve got the cross to bear
This shame I feel
Confess

Did you mean the things you said?

Cross my heart
And dream to die
Can’t get that night
Out of my head
Cross out, cancel
She silently says

Come Closer
You’ll like it
Come feel it
Can’t deny her
Cruel temptress


We crossed that line
So obsessed
Sweet temptress
Your touch, only if tonight
Swear you’ll be mine

At a crossroads
I’ve been double crossed
X out the eyes
Innocence is lost.

RAZOR TONGUE

It's that look
The one that pulls me in
Simply calculating
Hidden all behind the grin
It's those words
I gave it my all
but you only gave it 2/3

 

Everything is what it really ever was
You know it's not because
It's the way you say it
that makes it so poetic
with your razor tongue
Its love, its defeat
I'm nothing without you

A glimmer of possibility
A sense of escape

 

Everything is what it really ever was
You know it's not because
It's the way you said it
that makes it so poetic
with your razor tongue
I don't know

We collide
Those words, that thorn in my side
I can't let you go
Those eyes say more than

your words ever could

A fire tempts the night sky
The tragedy that you've made

Everything is what it really ever was
You know it's not because
It's the way you say it
that makes it so poetic
with your razor tongue

We collide
Those words, that thorn in my side
I can't let you go

Those eyes say more than your words ever could

The odds are against us
We're two of the same
Go on with your mistrust
Find someone else to blame
We're two of a rebellious kind
We're two of the same
Find someone else to blame
We're two of a rebellious kind

Those words cut deeper
Go further than any fist ever could
The fire tempts the night sky
Pulling it in
Like a moth to a flame
