  Colour of the Past
Face the spectres cast astray, the broken holidays
From dreams I can't awake and life cannot erase
The days I walked alone and called upon all the ghosts I've known
To see me off, to kiss goodbye, to vanquish me from prying eyes
Inside my sins eat me alive; I run but cannot hide
A past I can't deny, I wish away the lies
I've cried to keep me warm; I'm blanketed in my regret and scorn
A river flows where tears were shed and black flowers grow to mark the dead
Truth and hope cannot diffuse the battered and the bruised
The flame that burns so blue and lights the fire in you
My love, the world is new, in absence of, I come unglued
I cut myself on broken glass for red's the color of my past

Veil of Tears
A dark and dreary place, the lost and lonely hide their face
From their judgment and their shame, concede the need to pray
Desolate hideaway, are sacred vows just words to say?
Commandments broken, lost the way? Into the great escape
A veil of tears blankets all our fears from those we hold most dear
Deny which leads astray, the sentiments of tested faith
Temptations that inebriate where the night devours the day
A veil of tears blankets all our fears from those we hold most dear
Salvage me, and in my time of need with you, I'll be
A veil of tears blankets all our fears from those we hold most dear
In the darkest night, I'll give in without a fight into the light
On bended knees I pray; cast the spell alleviate
All our anger, all our hate and save me from this fall from grace
Forgive the sins that I create, and promise me it's not too late
In you, I'll find the way

One More Past
Look on me with bedroom eyes and promise me in simple lies
Can you? Can you?
A vision that transcends all space and time and chances lost in haste
Are you! Are you!
Divine intervention kept me from fulfilling destiny
But all I ask for's one more chance to hold you
For you, I'd will the world to change the vengeful miles to placid plains
For you! For you!
Songs unfinished, poems not sent, in solitary I lament
On you! On you!
Distance is a travesty, the thought that we might never be
The window of opportunity is closing fast
For my darling, I hold dear a candle glimmering sincere
But fading fast, I wish it'd last
Do you? Do you wish it too?

Wrong for the Right Reasons
I turn my eyes away; I bow my head and pray
I wish upon a star, I wish you well wherever you are
For I release you to be with anyone but me
You were never mine to keep; you deserve to be free
As the earth beneath our feet drifts away from us
I'm rotten for the songs I kept from you for so long
The words I couldn't speak are now reflections in the tears that I weep
For I release you to be who you need to be
Let all your wildest dreams be now within your reach
May you achieve a peace that I could never give
When all is said and done
When broken hearts once lost, have now won
Whether near or far, I wish you well wherever you are

Halloween Candy
Live for the moment, live for yourself
Live in the land of spontaneity
Common courtesy is not something that I owe
But something others expect from me
Consumed by my own dependence on thought
Alone in the dark to an angel I pray
She catches a firefly in a glass jar
And keeps it close to light my way
My muse dances to an unfinished song
Though winds may change and cripple our youth
No more do you ask, but you assume I'll do
Your selfish thoughts overshadow the truth
Gone are emotions, which once were just
As with all compassion, now stripped away
Crimson sunsets and one hundred-proof
Can no longer deny the next coming day
No Halloween Candy, and no chocolate milk smiles
Your bleeding heart echoes what once we shared
I won't apologize for what I should've done before
I'm not sorry, I don't even care

Dead Flowers
Shadows falling on me, tight-lipped, twisted insanity
Can't let go of something that I never had but dress the wounds
Where life has cut me badly
Riptide, whip lashed, and unglued
Yet time won't let me hate you
See you on the crumpled pages smiling amongst empty faces
When you were all I knew
Dead flowers line the path and we'd be sheltered underneath the trees
We'd stay all night and kiss despite the rain
Darkness coming on strong now, I fear it won't be long now
Till my grieving overtakes me, sucks me in, decapitates me
No applause and no final bow
Dead flowers line the path and we'd be sheltered underneath the trees
We'd stay all night and kiss despite the rain
The time, it echoes oh so slowly and memories shall haunt the lonely
Darkened by the cursive of your name
A claustrophobic, suffocating pain

Lasher
Vengeance walks alongside me while passion sleeps
Invade my dreams and silently I'll pray to thee
You had no right to steal the light and disappear into the night
Impossible as it may seem you're just like me
I've been to Hell and back again, it's in my eyes
The world may grow although I know nothing of time
The stars above know not of love, but of deceit
And down below, my tragic soul bleeds endlessly
A spell surrounds the bodies found
Deserted town, the sun goes down
Embraced the hate I tried to hide to set me free
I've been to Hell and back again, it's in my eyes
The world may grow although I know nothing of time
I've fathered far too many sins and countless lies
Reflections cast away a past, empty inside
I've been to Hell and back again, and it's all lies
I've been infected by a solitary sunrise
I curse in vain against the pain of velvet skies
May God forgive me for his children and their cries

Mirror
Sabotage my hopes and dreams and blind me with a silent need
I'm taken in with tragedy, I'm not who I pretend to be
A shadow's cast on all I see as the sun sets on my will to be
To satisfy a darker me, I'm torn apart at the seems
It's the gun in my hand; it's the knife in my back
It's the ache in my heart whenever we're apart
It's the morning that stings; it's the mirror that sings
It's the voice in my head that drowns out all you've said
A hatred that's consuming me, I'm broken down on my knees
Tightening its grip on me, no more can I pretend to be
A shadow's cast on all I see, escape to what I soon will be
The mournful won't remember me, only that which I could never be
It's a place where I hide; it leaves me empty inside
It's the light that I fear when the end is near
And though I reek of despair, of damage I can't repair
It's the tears I can't cry as the sun starts to rise
Lost and alone on my own, my blood turns cold to the bone
As the walls come crumbling down!
Nowhere to call home, no one home
Dug my own hole all alone, sold my soul to the complete unknown
I scream, but not a single sound!
Hell is all I know

Waiting on Forever
A wish on bended knees, I have no more than this
Your kiss, your tender touch, your smile oh how I miss
Your love, emotions die inside and turn to dust
Above, I search the Heavens for a trace of us
And I'm waiting on my fortune to come true
And I'm waiting on the skies of summer blue
And I'm waiting on forever with you
So cold, where silence drowns out everything we've known
Alone, lost to the streets without a place to call home
A blade to every wrist of those who led the way
I pray for strength to overcome what I can't erase
And I'm waiting on my fortune to come true
And I'm waiting on the skies of summer blue
And I'm waiting on forever with you

Atoned
Passing hours, roadmap of the sky
I've followed the stars, my celestial guide
Love has gone, my courage pacified and life has past me by
Reflections on promise unfulfilled
And answers missed, secrets unrevealed
Burdened soul, you shall reap what you sow and suffer in the cold
Can surrendered sinners be atoned?
And sponge away the writing on this stone?
Can we find the place of dreams
Where the lonely cease to be alone?
Black dead calm, the calm before the storm
Sing the psalms for those who've yet to mourn
Whisper me and rue eternity for what I've missed was me
Can surrendered sinners be atoned?
And sponge away the writing on this stone?
Can we find the place of dreams
Where the lonely cease to be alone?
Looking back on what went wrong, soul entrapment of this song
Blew a chance to make amends, stormy seas without an end
Chains amassed throughout the years
Judgment passed, the verdict's clear
Haunted by our darkest fears
Heavy hearts can never win, regret's an unforgiving sin
Let me see another way to make it through another day
Let me know that there's an end

Karma
You can say what you want to but I'll do as I please
And I'll break every rule even when I'm on my knees
And I'll take all I can and I'll do as I please
And I'll walk with my head held high even when I'm on my knees
Shut up! Now let me talk, I was here first after all
I've kept my mouth shut for years now I'll be glad to see you fall
I've wiped the sweat from my brow, I scraped your shit from my shoes
You didn't teach me how to love and all I learned was how to lose
You're the first to tear me down, you love to hit below the belt
You turned away if I would frown, didn't give a damn bout how I felt
You left me weak just for the thrill but didn't move in for the kill
If sticks and stones don't break your bones then you can bet that karma will
You can say what you want to, but I'll do as I please
And I'll break every rule even when I'm on my knees
I gave so much, you took my trust, said you were just mysterious
Now that the roles have been reversed, I'm no longer curious
I kissed your ass, but now I kick; now it's my turn to be pissed
I've nothing more to answer for and no I don't think you'll be missed
The urge to vent is so immense but it's the only thing that makes sense
And so the fire inside of me burns, not of hope, but of repent
You left me weak just for the thrill but didn't move in for the kill
If sticks and stones don't break your bones then you can bet that karma will
The blisters burn from memories, languishing inside of me
They scorch the earth beneath my feet but I have bled all I can bleed
And in the end I will not run, I'll rise above your loaded gun
Raising forth into the sun, I'll stay and fight, thy will be done
You can say what you want to, but I'll do as I please
And I'll break every rule even when I'm on my knees
And I'll take all I can and I'll do as I please
And I'll walk with my head held high even when I'm on my knees

Orlando
Kisses, ever drifting wishes
Ever faithful to this promise of our existence
By starlight, I wish I may wish I might, in the moonlight
Tonight I hope you are all right
Our lives in time shall intertwine, your eyes they never lie
Look into mine and you will find
I love you; the heavens up above you
Light the world around you, I thank the lord I've found you
And someday we'll leave the rest and fly away
Let distant highways guide me, you're all I need beside me
Our love withstands the test of time, and never dies
The stars unite and won't deny
