Unforgiving City

I was betrayed in a fit of rage
Never expected that from a friend
I thought I could count on their loyalty
Until the very bitter end

I was dishonored and ridiculed
Forced to face my true personality
Discover who were my real friends
And find my way back to reality

I was lost in the unforgiving city
Wet and needing of sleep
Trying to process what happened
Cold, trembling and weak

The Trip

When the Perpetual Motion Machine finally began to slow down, two amazing things happened. I realized that I was wrong and I realized there was still a chance to save her.

Two years ago my wife and I were flying through a nebula. Sensors didn’t indicate anything harmful scanning it at a distance. A few minutes after entering, something interacted with our engines and put them offline. I spent two days in the engine room trying to figure out what the filters may have missed while my wife was continuously trying to reach anyone that may be within hailing frequencies. If I didn’t fix the ship soon we weren’t going to have enough fuel and energy reserves to make the trip back home.

I Barely Knew

I barely knew my father. By the time I was 4 years old he left my mom and I. As I got old enough to understand what that meant I hadn’t seen him in 3 years. At first my mom made different excuses- your father is moving away for his job, we don’t love each other anymore, we’ll be living in different houses- the usual stuff. When I was a preteen I coaxed my mother into telling me the truth and she finally told me he was an alcoholic. She told him to choose us or the bottle – he chose the drink.

TBT: Flame And Fire (2008)

Hopeful joy found in my soul
Share some satisfaction, make me whole
Come forth to me and my appreciation
I will find destiny and admiration

Comforting warmth in my heart
Speak one word, make me start
Come forth to me and my temptation
I will fill you with lust and sensations

Forbidden passion in my dreams
Rise to the surface, made me scream
Come forth to me and my desire
I will fuel the flame and fire

Curious awakening in my mind
Has me searching, made me find
Come forth to me and discover
I will be yours always and forever

How Long (Until We Learn)

Caress me forever beyond the sea
Waves created by tears
It's all of me-
You can tell I've been trying
Even if I never make it far
I know how to flee

Carry me forever beyond the light
Waves created by shadows
It's all a fight-
I can tell you're been tired
Even if you always make it far
You know how to ignite

Convince the world forever beyond comfort
Waves created by habits
It's all an effort-
I can tell we've been ashamed
Even if we mistakenly make it far
We know how to hurt

Out There In The Stars

The first time I felt love
I had an angel from up above
I never knew what I could create
To find friends that always relate
To be the light in darkness
To give me permission to be a mess
Never knew what I could create
To find an angel through fate

The first time I found a star
I had a smile wide and far
I never knew what it could mean
To find friends that always seem
To be my path in the night
To give me help when I fight
Never knew what it could mean
To find a star in my dream

TBT: Libra (1997)

I feel like sorrow, when it's dry, when it's heavy
I remember how I used to glance at them with envy
Waiting for my love to find itself home to my mind
I'm stuck here because I'm scared it will find
That mother nature has been crying
For that man who's been denying
That man is my brother, my friend, my father
And soon mother nature will alter
The power in me that wishes to be best
The soul in me who yearns to rest

I feel like sleeping, when it's peaceful, when I'm sad
I remember now the time I used to think it would be bad
To think she had no reason, to think she had no pain
But to that I have lived up to, only to gain
The knowledge of my own truth, of my dignity
Mary has been waiting patiently for me
Soon she will help me again, help me think
But what I need most is extinct
Like a picture behind a solid brick wall
Where I could reach the one I love most of all

I feel like screaming, when it's silent, when I'm angry
I remember when I used to think I could be free
Sitting on a rocky edge at the end of time
I wish I could jump and erase all crime
For the ride of my life is soon to come
When I choose to surrender to what I have become
In this place of feeling, this place of lies
And everything that just sits and dies
God was waiting for me to do it, to decide
But I'm not ready so I still have to hide

Escape With Us

I feel the pain every time I breathe
Conflict becomes me, admiration
I am the catalyst to those who hear me
I keep the memories away
From those I care deeply about-
Soon as they can outrun the peril
So can I, but not before

There is always only one open road
Confusion invades me, desperation
I am the catalyst to those who understand me
I keep the uncertainty away
From those I care deeply about-
Soon as they understand themselves
So can I, but not before

Escape with us if you seek peace
Monsters fade in me, validation
I am the catalyst to those who fear me
I keep the demons away
From those I care deeply about-
Soon as they sleep in peace
So can I, but not before
