Neurotically Wired
God, I pray for you, quite the task at hand
Dear God I wait for you, child to a man
God, do you hear cries of kindred souls
Dear God the broken man reaps what he has sown
Pray for me, I am not alone
Dear God exorcise strangers from my home

So cold the winter of discontent, a lifetime to remember
Life seems so animated, neurons firing round after round
How illogical, stillness makes my skin crawl
But where I run isn't any where at all

I can't let them take me down
Will her sickness break her crown?
Why in the name of god would they hold her down?
I can't let them put me six feet under

One eyed Pollyanna left out in the rain
A stitch in time will mend her fine and on the shelf again
Scarecrow and the tin man dancing in her dreams
Come the dawn a bitter pill keeps her there it seems

Shelter me my asylum, shelter me
Incarnation of the dead memories
Masterful liar, a reflection
We are flawed, flawed to perfection

In the eyes of a child, cut so deep she'll never ever love again
His addiction left her bleeding
In the eyes of a child, locked away in a heart shaped box
It holds a secret she hears it breathing

In the end thy kingdom come, in the end thy will be done
This and nothing more quoth the raven
In the end thy Kingdom come, in the end thy will be done
Here forevermore, this and nothing more

Rise higher open your eyes child
All of God's graces you were born to be here
Just as you are child neurotically wired
Rivers of tears won't wash the strand away
Rise higher open your eyes child
All of God's graces you were born to be
Will I always see through the eyes,
See through the eyes of a child?

Cross eyed Mary quite contraire
How does your garden grow?
Seeds of sorrow yield tomorrow
Harvesting the fruit you bestow
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Walls of shame built brick by brick
Sitting in his angry chair
Fear became a means to his end

In the eyes of a child, cut so deep she'll never love again
His addiction left her bleeding
In the eyes of a child, buried in a heart shaped box
It holds her secret she hears it breathing
Down on her knees, dying God on a cross of gold
No deliverance tears are seething
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Tried but they could not put Pollyanna together again

Rise higher, open your eyes child
All of God's graces you were meant to be here
More than you are child neurotically wired
Rivers of tears won't wash the strand away
Rise higher open your heart wide
All of your demons will finally fade away
Will I always see through the eyes of a child?

Why do we remember the cold November Rain?
A stitch in time would save us nine and on our feet again
Scarecrow and the tin man much like you and I
A broken heart you've lost your mind, you become what you deny

Shelter me my asylum, shelter me
Incarnation of the dead memories
Masterful liar, my reflection
We are flawed, flawed to perfection
 
 
Midnight Serenade
Cry me a river that flows through fields of dreams
Through the wings of the nightingale
And twilight memories
An angel's gentle kiss of lifeless breath within your mind
So beautiful the symphony, disjointed and sublime

Close your eyes and dream your life away, away
Forever and a day, queens of the May beckon you to
Dream your life away

See though the mirror how it seems ever clearer now
Translucent and so surreal my scars just fade away
A passion play of shadows sings a midnight serenade
The rush of guilt for all my thoughts comes to light as another day

Close your eyes and dream your life away, away
This abstract masquerade in disarray
You're the pawn so dream your life away

The willow tree I engraved your name
A thousand tears it still remains
Cold November rains
Wash your blood from my veins
And as the hours meld into the years
Windows to my soul reveal
The answer to my prayers is not the dream, but to believe

Close you eyes and dream your dreams away, away
Forever and a day queens of the May
Beckon you to dream your life
Close you eyes and dream your life away, away
Sanctuary I can't face another day
So I'll dream my life away
 
 
Stained Glass Sky
Morning desert sun horizon
Rise above the sands of time
Come journey to arcana
Travel starry spheres in trine

Master they shall fear thee
Martyr they endear thee
Father it was written, so it shall be
Mother yield the pure seed
Child it's your destiny so
Hallowed by thy name

Under stained glass sky
A crown of thorns it intertwines
The mortal and divine together
Under stained glass sky

Sands of the dunes and dust of the bones
Have swallowed them and all left behind
Gods of the fire fall from the sky
On a wing and a prayer

Master they shall fear thee
Martyr they endear thee
Father it was written, so it shall be
Mother yield the pure seed
Child it's your destiny so
Hallowed be thy name

Under stained glass sky
A wailing wall of tears divides
The trinity of terror spawning
Under stained glass sky
Under stained glass sky, I don't want to die

I've fallen from the sky
I know what I am in their eyes
Truths are only lies told over and over again
Pray tell my hands are tied
An infidel here lies
Rise the crimson tide of a dead sea
Where nothing can ever survive

She rose from the crimson tide
The maiden dead waters baptized
Tears rain from her eyes
Drowning the depths of her soul
Standing with her maker, giver and the taker
Siren from the shore she echoes the verses
And curses them all

Living, dying, bleeding, crying
Elvin and serpentine under a midnight sun
Shadows are dancing, spirits romancing
The cautious embrace of a quiet refrain
Dreaming, praying, trusting, believing
The truth of her testament witness to all that remains
Cloaked in silence, shrouds of violence
A radical harem has twisted her tongue
Dream the last dream, dance the last dance, breathe the last breath
A penance for what she dare believe

As the tempest rends there's a maiden that mends
An interwoven tapestry
Shreds of truth in the sacred stratum
Embroidered with iniquities
By any measure heirloom treasure
Threads of doubt kingdoms fell
This lady she knows all that glitters isn't gold
Her stairway to heaven is a matrix through hell

Conspiring eyes through a veil of lies
A whirling dervish dances in
The here and the after rage for the master
It was written so it shall be
As they sleep the devil's kitchen
Prepares a feast of mis-beliefs
The collective screams of tortured souls
Brought Satan to his knees

Master they shall fear thee
Martyr they endear thee
Father it was written, so it shall be
Mother yields the pure seed
Child it's your destiny so
Hallowed be thy name

Under stained glass sky
A crown of thorns it intertwines
The mortal and divine together
Under stained glass sky

Round and round and up and down the dervish goes
Where his tempest rends the prophets have foretold
Maiden who knows all that glitters isn't gold
Sacrificial lamb, hallowed be thy name

Under ashen sky
Continents they can't divide
The interwoven tapestry
The fabric of our lives
 
 
On the Fence
I am over my head, the river that sustains became a waterfall
Don't let go, I'm in too deep and I can't breathe
Under, pulling me down, the long arm of the critic pathological
And I digress, I know I'm not the only one

I know I'm not the only one
On the fence again
Means have met their end
The winds of change around the bend
And I'm on the fence my friend

I stand close to the edge, the crystal fault gleaming with perfection
And I wonder why the glass beneath my feet gives away
I am bringing to life a puppet of pretension and denial
And so haunting is the painted affect of his smile

Painted affect of his smile
On the fence again
Means have met their ends
The winds of change around the bend
I'm on the fence my friend
On the fence again
The ghost that I befriend
Is with me till the bitter end
I'm on the fence my friend

I'm wandering through my field of dreams
Darkened clouds surround me
Reckless I abandoned you
Throwing caution to the wind
Diary of dead memories resonates inside me
Dissonance from afar, so blessed so cursed we are
Pages of my life torn away and thrown to the sky
Me and my shadow why, it's never easy to say goodbye

Crawling before we believed we could stand
Fall after fall we would trust once again
Shattered and broken love the illusion takes us by the hand
When it abandons you, you will understand

When you held the rose in your hand
And you failed to understand
You held to tight, the thorns they made you bleed
You laid love down to die, wilt away before your eyes
Flaws are of your own, not of the rose you fool

I am over my head, the river that sustains became a waterfall
Don't let go, I'm in to deep and I can't breathe
Under, pulling me down, the long arm of the critic pathological
And I digress, I know I'm not the only one
 
 
Any Given Day (Strangers Like Me)
I. Any Given Day

Looking through stained windows blue and out of my asylum
The keeper of the key has lost the way and locked the doors behind him
Beyond these walls and hallowed halls there shines a new horizon
Draw the blinds cause in my mind I am a rock I am an island

Enter the asylum, sanctuary waits
Through the gates of salvation never giving never living
The keeper's pleased to own you, there is always hell to pay
So on your knees and pray cause it's any given, any given day

Bleeding through the window pane a purgatory rain
Is drowning me in sorrow will it wash away the pain
Words before me answer not and yet forever trying
I'd give my life, the life I live, to live like I was finally dying

Listen to the wind blow, something's in the air
There's a bad moon rising
Keep denying keep on hiding here
In this house of the setting sun, counting one by one
All my numbered days and it's any given, unforgiven,
Insurrection, resurrection, any live long day

Halo of empathy, shine for all but you deny me
Hate, rage, fear, they are here
Shaking like a wounded animal
Kept alive behind each door the keeper opens
Is a haunting memory
Whispers in the dead of night
The shadows of the liars
They have come for me

Halo of empathy shine for all but you deny me
Hate rage fear they are here
Shaking like a wounded animal

Please heaven rain on me
Wash away my disease
Halo of empathy shine on me
I believe, shine on me
Release ten-fold this stranglehold
And I'll be free to live like I was finally dying

Burning the asylum, embers through the air
Through the gates of damnation
Rising from the ashes nothings going to keep me here
No one can ever own you, nor should you ever dare
Embrace the fear of any given, be forgiven,
Insurrection, resurrection, any given day


II. Strangers Like Me

And when it's said and done, dance with fate begun
Battles lost and won, hold on, hold on

The May queen turns the key, unlocks a secret diary
Words bleed endlessly, how long, how long?

And in a twisted mind truth and lies are intertwined
Like a puppet on a string I bring the Keeper back to life

The world I believe breeds strangers like me
Mortal asylums that shelter the disease
Wandering without aim our devices shift the blame
A death grip on a trigger, a plea of the insane
Resonance of sympathy, frequencies disharmony
Reversing my polarity, turns beauty into ugly
Distorted bandwidth in our mind unravels wave lengths undefined
Relentless and malign, cycling over and over

Hold, hold on, you're just a heartbeat away
Hold, hold on, to any given day
 
 
Incense And Myrrh
I heard the angels cry in vain
I guess they knew it was time
Time for you to join them
The words are lost in silence
There's nothing they can do or say to will
Heaven awaits as eyes lie so very still
The hands of time could never fill
The void left so suddenly behind by you

Love lies bleeding
It's sad to know your diamond eyes
They won't shine upon us anymore
Weeping willows your name engraved
Though seasons change it still remains
Eternal winter will not wane
Through the cold November rain
I will watch over you

Incense and myrrh
Silken red mahogany
Beautifully disfigured
The scents of orchids fill the air
Incense and myrrh
A candle's flame unwavering
A choir of the angels, places of so high they sing
Tears rain down, down on me

Incense and myrrh
Herein lies a mystery
A cradle filled with wonder
Transcends to fatal tragedy
Incense and myrrh
A vacant room, a diary
Memoirs through the eyes of a child
And the keeper's broken promises of sanctuary
Shelter me, carry me, pray for me
Then will you scatter me in to the stain glass sky
Halo of empathy, shine on me
Bleed for the inner child, like the wild rose, it has wilted away
The candle fades as a part of me has died
Tears rain down, down on me
