i ride the train

by on May.31, 2009, under Lyrics

i ride the train
i ride the rhythm
i tied my brain
in barbed-wire ribbon
you better watch your hands

if you’re gonna feed me any more lies
i’m gonna bite the hand that feeds
if i could see beyond your eyes…
would i see myself asleep in the last car
next to midnight in the train yard
dreaming again

i ride the train
i ride the rhythm
i saw her face
after nine days in the river
and then i washed my hands

i don’t mind a little rain but you been crying for so long
it’s been dark both night and day
but to change you would be wrong
here’s a secret…
careful where you keep it…
i can’t trust my brain

i ride the train
i writhe in rhythm
i don’t mind the pain
it reminds me i’m living
i’m lost in everyland

i ride the train and sing my song
it don’t matter to me today
I am right where i belong
i ride the train and spy on love in the real world
pretty little rich girls…. dry in the rain.

i ride the train
i ride the train
i ride the train
i ride the train

Horses

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

there’s peace in this valley where i belong
this here’s the crossroads in johnson’s song
just over yonder… mile down this road
lives a girl named mary… with a heart of gold

i been down this way
i been down this way

lost my freedom
what’s done is done
shot a man from dallas with my father’s gun
with burning bible, he torched my barn
the screams of the horses goes on and on

even to this day…
even to this day.

the priest thanks the warden and he says,
“son, don’t you worry, i’ve seen this done…
thousands of angels take you home…
follow your horses down this winding road.”

i been down this way…
i been down this way…
…before.

The Only Gods

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

mother,
these days keep rolling by,
strange and full of life.
i won’t forget what you said… that in the end…
we are on our own, we are on our own.

lover,
stay right here by my side
in shadow and in light
the road is so long but if we are strong…
we’ll find our way home… we’ll find our way home.

love is like the rain falling all around you
you can’t keep one drop but it totally surrounds you

under the ever-changing skies,
we pray and waste our time.
we only return when we have learned…
we are the only gods, we are the only gods.

love is like the rain falling all around you
you can’t keep one drop but it totally surrounds you.

The Greatest Sin

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

and i will never be with you
and i would leave this world for you
and i know i am the one for you
and i know you better than you know you

and i will never be with you
and i will always be here for you
and time will have you think of me
time… my invincible enemy!

who are you gonna trust with your soul
when this world can be so cold
how can i seep in your heart
when you hide it away and you keep it locked

and i will never lay with you
and I will never dream with you
and i wonder what might have been
in life… in life…
this is the greatest sin… in life

in life
in life
in life
in life
in life
in life.

Hurricane Jane

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

should stay home today… watch the world go ’round.
thoughts are miles away… and can’t be found.
some punk on the street is burning new york down.
burning new york down.

are the cars awake… or sleeping now?
oh the chance you take… to get downtown.
you go walk on the sea, don’t need me around.

i’m in the light… i’m in the dream.
behind the face you can’t quite see.
i’m in the light… i’m in the dream…
set my jet-black sail on your bright-white sea.
your bright-white sea.

lose your mind today… and call my name.
laugh your life away… you choose the game.
my my my emotional-hurricane jane.
huricane jane.
huricane jane.

Why

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

how did it come to this…
and we were so much in love.
don’t say you’re mine
that’s fine but that’s not enough.

how did it come to this…
you don’t mind if i don’t come home.
when i’m holding you,
i’ve never felt so alone.

oh but i have someone…
and she’s so good to me.
i have seen her face in mine,
if i go blind that’s fine with me.

how did it come to this
how did it come to this
how did it come to this
how did it come to this?

Scream

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

distracted in the middle of my suicide…
by a vision of you on a sunny day.
when i snap back into reality,
i drive the spike right back inside my vein.

distracted in commission of your homicide…
by a vision of you asleep in my bed.
when one of my multiple personalities
drives my knife right back inside your head

funny… i thought it would bother me,
but i just slip into perpetual dream.
well… in the furthest reaches of the galaxy,
it makes absolutely no sense at all to…
…. scream.

Keeper of the Dreams

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

i am the keeper of the dreams
i cast them out at night
to those who see my light

i hear the sounds of breath in sleep
multiplied by millions,
it awakens me
time and time again i bend the moonbeams to you
that’s how i send the dreams to you

it’s a long journey through skies and eyes,
unseen and unknown…
they touch the stars and make them glow,
alpha and beta are the ones i know

they bring you down so deep and low,
where worlds collide and
words take flight from the archers bow
i bring you peace so close to death,
the morning light is the army charging from the east,
always victorious…
it lays your dreams to rest

here i dwell in castles of rhyme
my blood does flow but no heart is mine
your oceans are filled from the tears i’ve cried
though the centuries pass i shall never die

gaze at the sky and cry for me
from here above i will see
and send you peace so close to death
limitless love from on high
the keeper of the dreams shall never die

Far

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

whenever the wind blows
i hear a whisper of your voice.
long after shadows…
thoughts of you remain.
whenever the sun shines
i feel the warmth of you close…
and when I feel the rain…
the rain upon my face,
i long to be in your embrace…

whenever the wind blows.

A Little Kindness…

by on May.26, 2009, under Lyrics

you kick a man when he is down,
turn your back on the lonely crowd.
you fear the man who begs for dimes,
fear him not… he’s a friend of mine.
his only crime… a broken heart…
sometimes you fall, and that’s the start.

people now… people now…
a little kindness won’t kill you.

you beat the child who’s done no harm,
this poor child don’t know right from wrong.
break his spirit and bend his will..
no surprise he grows up to kill.
you ignore his victims screams…
and so tonight, it’s pleasent dreams…

people now… people now…
a little kindness won’t kill you.

it’s only words, it’s just a song,
don’t crucify me, don’t get me wrong.
i’m as guilty as all the rest,
some say life is just a test…
and if the sun should rise again,
tomorrow i will try to be a better man.

people now… people now…
a little kindness won’t kill you.
