Enter Sandman



Say your prayers little one
don't forget, my son
to include everyone

tuck you in, warm within
keep you free from sin
till the sandman he comes

   sleep with one eye open
   gripping your pillow tight

      exit light
      enter night
      take my hand
      off to never never land

something's wrong, shut the light
heavy thoughts tonight
and they aren't of snow white

dreams of war, dreams of liars
dreams of dragon's fire
and of things that will bite

   sleep with one eye open
   gripping your pillow tight
     
      exit light
      enter night
      take my hand
      off to never never land

now I lay me down to sleep
pray the lord my soul to keep
if I die before I wake
pray the lord my soul to take

hush little baby, don't say a word
and never mind that noise you heard
it's just the beast under your bed,
in your closet, in your head

      exit light
      enter night
      grain of sand

      exit light
      enter night
      take my hand
      we're off to never never land





Sad But True



Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who takes you there
hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who cares
they
they betray
I'm your only true friend now
they
they'll betray
I'm forever there

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes   when you must steal
   I'm your pain   when you can't feel
   sad but true

   I'm your dream, mind astray
   I'm your eyes   while you're away
   I'm your pain   while you repay
   you know it's sad but true

you
you're my mask
you're my cover, my shelter
you
you're my mask
you're the one who's blamed
do
do my work
do my dirty work, scapegoat
do
do my deeds
for you're the one who's shamed

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes   when you must steal
   I'm your pain   when you can't feel
   sad but true

   I'm your dream, mind astray
   I'm your eyes   while you're away
   I'm your pain   while you repay
   you know it's sad but true

hate
I'm your hate
I'm your hate when you want love
pay
pay the price
pay, for nothing's fair

hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who took you here
hey
I'm your life
and I no longer care

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes   when you must steal
   I'm your pain   when you can't feel
   sad but true

   I'm your truth, telling lies
   I'm your reasoned alibis
   I'm inside      open your eyes
   I'm you

   Sad But True
 


Holier Than Thou



No more!
the craps rolls out your mouth again
haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
little whispers circle around your head
why don't you worry about yourself instead

who are you? where ya been? where ya from?
gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
you lie so much you believe yourself
judge not lest ye be judged yourself

   holier than thou
   you are
   holier than thou
   you are

   you know not

before you judge me take a look at you
can't you find somethig better to do
point the finger, slow to understand
arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

it's not who you are it's who you know
others lives are the basis of your own
burn your bridges build them back with wealth
judge not lest ye be judged yourself

   holier than thou
   you are
   holier than thou
   you are

   you know not


The Unforgiven




New blood joins this earth
and quikly he's subdued
through constant pain disgrace
the young boy learns their rules

with time the child draws in
this whipping boy done wrong
deprived of all his thoughts
the young man struggles on and on he's known
a vow unto his own
that never from this day
his will they'll take away

    what I've felt
    what I've known
    never shined through in what I've shown
    never be
    never see
    won't see what might have been

    what I've felt
    what I've known
    never shined through in what I've shown
    never free
    never me
    so I dub thee unforgiven

they dedicate their lives
to running all of his
he tries to please them all
this bitter man he is
throughout his life the same
he's battled constantly
this fight he cannot win
a tired man they see no longer cares
the old man then prepares
to die regretfully
that old man here is me

    what I've felt
    what I've known
    never shined through in what I've shown
    never be
    never see
    won't see what might have been

    what I've felt
    what I've known
    never shined through in what I've shown
    never free
    never me
    so I dub the unforgiven

you labeled me
I'll label you
so I dub the unforgiven


Wherever I May Roam




...and the road becomes my bride
   I have stripped of all but pride
   so in her I do confide
   and she keeps me satisfied
   gives me all I need

...and with dust in throat I crave
   only knowledge will I save
   to the game you stay a slave
   rover     wanderer
   nomad     vagabond
   call me what you will

      but I'll take my time anywhere
      free to speak my mind anywhere
      and I'll redefine anywhere
         anywhere I may roam
         where I lay my head is home

...and the earth becomes my throne
   I adapt to the unknown
   under wandering stars I've grown
   by myself but not alone
   I ask no one

...and my ties are severed clean
   the less I have the more I gain
   off the beaten path I reign
   rover     wanderer
   nomad     vagabond
   call me what you will

      but I'll take my time anywhere
      I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
      and I'll never mind anywhere
         anywhere I may roam
         where I lay my head is home

      but i'll take my time anywhere
      free to speak my mind
      and I'll take my find anywhere
         anywhere I may roam
         where I lay my head is home

      carved upon my stone
      my body lie, but still I roam
         wherever I may roam


Don't Tread On Me



Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
never begins it, never, but once engaged...
never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

don't tread on me

    so be it
    threaten no more
    to secure peace is to prepare for war
    so be it
    settle the score
    touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

don't tread on me

love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
shining with brightness, always on surveillance
the eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

don't tread on me

    so be it
    threaten no more
    to secure peace is to prepare for war
    so be it
    settle the score
    touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

don't tread on me

    so be it
    threaten no more
    to secure peace is to prepare for war

liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

    so be it
    threaten no more
    to secure peace is to prepare for war
    so be it
    settle the score
    touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

don't tread on me


Through The Never




All that is, was and will be
universe much too big to see

time and space never ending
disturbing thoughts, questions pending
limitations of human understanding
too quick to criticize
obligation to survive
we hunger to be alive

    all that is, ever
    ever was
    will be ever
    twisting
    turning
    through the never

in the dark, see past our eyes
pursuit of trhuth no matter where it lies

gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
on a quest, meaning, reason
came to be, how it begun
all alone in the family of the sun
curiosity teasing everyone
on our home, third stone from the sun

    all that is, ever
    ever was
    will be ever
    twisting
    turning
    through the never

on through the never
we must go
on through the never
out of the
edge of forever
we must go
on through the never
then ever comes

    all that is, ever
    ever was
    will be ever
    who we are
    ask forever
    twisting
    turning
    through the never

    never


Nothing Else Matters



So close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
all these words I don't just say
and nothing else matters

trust I seek and I find in you
every day for us something new
open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

    never cared for what they do
    never cared for what they know
    but I know

so close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

    never cared for what they do
    never cared for what they know
    but I know

never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
all these words I don't just say

trust I seek and I find in you
every day for us something new
open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

    never cared for what they say
    never cared for games they play
    never cared for what they do
    never cared for what they know
    and I know

so close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
no nothing else matters


Of Wolf And Man



Off through the new day's mist I run
off from the new day's mist I have come
I hunt
therefore I am
harvest the land
taking of the fallen lamb

off thruogh the new day's mist I run
off from the new day'smist I have come
we shift
pulsing with the earth
company we keep
roaming the land while you sleep

   shape shift     nose to the wind
   shape shift     feeling I've been
   move swift      all senses clean
   earth's gift    back to the meaning of life

bright is the moon high in starlight
chill is the air cold as steel tonight
we shift
call of the wild
fear in your eyes
it's later than you realized

   shape shift     nose to the wind
   shape shift     feeling I've been
   move swift      all senses clean
   earth's gift    back to the meaning of life

I feel I change
back to a better day
hair stands on the back of my neck
in wildness is the preservation of the world

so seek the wolf in thyself

   shape shift     nose to the wind
   shape shift     feeling I've been
   move swift      all senses clean
   earth's gift
   back to the meaning of wolf and man


The God That Failed



Pride you took
pride you feel
pride that you felt when you'd kneel

not the word
not the love
not what you thought from above

   it feeds
   it grows
   it clouds all that you will know
   deceit
   deceive
   decide just what you believe

     I see faith in your eyes
     never your hear the discouraging lies
     I hear faith in your cries
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

     follow the god that failed

find your peace
find your say
find the smooth road in your way

trust you gave
a child to save
left you cold and him in grave

   it feeds
   it grows
   it clouds all that you will know
   deceit
   deceive
   decide just what you believe

     I see faith in your eyes
     never you hear the discouraging lies
     I hear faith in your cries
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

     follow the god that failed

     I see faith in your eyes
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

     follow the god that failed

pride you took
pride you feel
pride that you felt when you'd kneel

trust you gave
a child to save
left you cold and him in grave

     I see faith in your eyes
     never you hear the discouraging lies
     I hear faith in your cries
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by deepened nail

     follow the god that failed


My Friend Of Misery



You just stood there screaming
fearing no one was listening to you
they say the empty can rattles the most
the sound of your voice must soothe you
hearing only what you want to hear
and knowing only what you've heard
you    you're smothered in tragedy
you're out to save the world

    misery
    you insist that the weight of the world
    should be on your shoulders
    misery
    there's much more to life than what you see
    my friend of misery

you still stood there screaming
no one caring about these words you tell
my friend before your voice is gone
one man's fun is another's hell
these times are sent to try men's souls
but something's wrong with all you see
you    you'll take it on all yourself
remember, misery loves company

    misery
    you insist that the weight of the world
    should be on your shoulders
    misery
    there's much more to life than what you see
    my friend of misery

you just stood there creaming
my friend of misery


The Struggle Within



Reaching out for something you've got to feel
while clutching to what you had thought was real

kicking at a dead horse pleases you
no way of showing your gratitude
so many things you don't want to do
what is it? what have you got ot lose

what the hell
what is you think you're gonna find?
hypocrite
boredom sets into the boring mind

    struggle within   it suits you fine
    struggle within   your ruin
    struggle within   you seal your own coffin
    struggle within   the struggling within

home is not a home it becomes a hell
turning it into your prison cell
advantages are taken, not handed out
while you struggle inside your hell

reaching out
grabbing for something tou've got to feel
closing in
the pressure upon you is so real

    struggle within   it suits you fine
    struggle within   your ruin
    struggle within   you seal your own coffin
    struggle within   the struggling within

reaching out for something you've got to feel
while clutching to what you had thought was real
what the hell

what is you think you're gonna find
hypocrite
boredom sets into the boring mind

    struggle within   it suits you fine
    struggle within   your ruin
    struggle within   you seal your own coffin
    struggle within   the struggling within
