Once, I walked without caring
Once, I listened without consequence,
Just listened to you talk.
Once, I jumped without thinking it through,
Jumped into the dark,
And then I found you.
Once, I shouted with out truth,
Screamed without reason,
It was the day I lost you...

You know that if I could
I would ease the pain
And if it would help
You know I'd even stop the rain
I'm so devoted to you
I miss you everyday
And everything you do
Makes me shiver in disarray
No matter what I do
You'll always be inside
Your name carved on my heart
On my sleeve with pride
And if you ever died
I don't know what I'd do
I'd probably rot inside
As the tears all grew
So please don't ever leave me
And I'll be all right
As long as you are next to me
Breathing through the night
stand up proudstand up proud in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Stand up on my shoulders
See above the crowd
See the world around you
Stand on high so proud
See through the eyes of the people
See all their earthly desires
All they ever wanted
Help them be all they aspire
Hear with their ears
The screams from their own minds
Things they've tried to hide
Remove the chains and binds
Feel with their senses
All the pain and the hurt
Ease the anger and the torment
Never let them revert
Be all you can be
Never let anyone say your not
Always give your one hundred percent
And give it all that you got

Just something in the way
Like a dirty stain
That just never goes away
That you push aside
that you'd rather hide
Now the rage comes over me
the anger I tried to hide
Its all starting to eat me up
Eat me up inside
Flashes of guilt
A breakdown of the mind
Then the darkness comes
Anger rendering me blind
I'm an accident
the flavour of the week
I'm just a freak
my skin is burning
with a hate for myself
so just wrap me up in plastic
and throw me back on the shelf!

This is the way I bleed
When I've lost the will to survive
This is the way I cry
When I'm forced by you to hide
This is the way I scream
When you've stolen all I have inside
Is this love that you've given me
Or is this just my hate
Could I ever have you back
Or am I just too late
Am I one for putting back on the shelf
Or one to stagnate
I don't think that I can take it anymore
These lies your selling me as truth
As you stand there deceiving
Like my hate is living proof
I love you so much within my despise
But it's just not enough!

my heart like lead
The taste of you
Turns me with dread
The inspiration of your love
The way you make me feel
Its like you're sent from above
And your love for me surreal
I'm nauseous down to my bones
This life I've never felt before
I can't ignore the feeling
I can't ignore it anymore
A snap of the synapses
And a break in the law
I wouldn't notice if you were gone
But I'd miss you in my own little way
A dependency of survival
I'm alone in the wood
With only you to guide me
No one else should
So I thank you for all your caring
And your perfection too
My love isn't for sharing
It's only for you

If no one can see me,
Do I still exist.
Or am I just a figment of mind,
If no one can feel me,
Then existence is surreal.
'Cause life without feeling,
Just wouldn't be real.
A life without pain,
A life full of joy,
A life full of passion,
A life to enjoy.
A life without hate,
That would be bliss.
'Cause hate is a parasite,
But a world without you,
Is something to dread.
But every day reminds me,
It's all in my head.

Sympathy is all I have left
Swimming in the sea of apathy
Egomaniacal bastards at the top of the ladder
Shitting on us the common man
Paddling in a sea of hatred
Up to the sands of relief
Just to be eaten by the shark of death
Before we even get a shot
It's like looking up at the stars
Just to see the clouds
A pointless act with so much significance
I sit here clearing my aching sinuses
Wishing my synapses would stop firing
Just to know what it feels like to be dead

Oh God I hate thee!
I hate thee with enduring ardor.
You creature of most zealous wrath.
Tormenting my life.
I will have it back.
With great vehemence you stole my love,
She was only seventeen.
Wicked thou art!
Lo! When I visited her grave,
upon that bleak autumnal day.
I looked and swore vengence on you lord.
For that taken, my sorrow and more.
On this night of abysmal thought,
I ready my body for your retort.
Break me like a piece of straw.
Send your angels, break down my door.
But I am unreachable, I am dead double done
and done over once more.
You wretched daemon I deplore.
On a precipice folded I cry and can't begin to fathom why.
Why our lord our supposed saviour, is too passive to act
he could have saved her.
But then -
I wake upon a white sand shore.
I have been tricked or so it would seem.
But beside me is that young girl I loved.
My heart is torn. For is this a dream?
Hath, my bitter lord found pleasure in torment?
Showing me what my heart dos't desire?

Curiously cyclic in it's motion,
A message from the anatomy; a cry to break.
To break this loop of endless days.
Days that merge moon with sun,
days where my laments are sung.
What is an hour in the course of a blood cell?
I am like it in many ways.
Both a servant to the slave machine and both mortally bored.
Bored with living in complete sync.
- Freedom for both through spilling red in the sink.
Softly, determined but dutifully I nourish my anatomy.

Aloft between my happiness and sadness, my mind plateau's and drifts in fantasy.
Dreams created and cleft of moonlight, highlight dew beads forming in the transient hollows of my mind.
Floating in the void of my thoughts and masked by my insecurities, lie the equations of old love - an epitome of solitude and monument to lonliness.
Within the walls the plaster flakes, it's been re-painted three times with different colour schemes. A shelled shelter once full of red desires and innate instinct, it only retains their perfumes tinge
,one red shoe, two bra's and....
And so, with only a desolate memory to wrap around in the cold of my mind, A pulped and murdered heart, too liquidated to find.
I still sit and look at my ceiling yonder.

Just because I'm a fighter, it doesn't mean the blows don't hurt.
But now I come to think of it, it's no less than I deserve.
Just because I hit him, it doesn't mean his face won't be fine.
But every time I do so, I glance his blows aloft from mine.
Just because I can bob the hook and break his jaw up on the weave, does this mean I'm a better man? I don't think so,
I don't know.
Was it because he fell that I hesistated to land the sting, or perhaps the strings of blood that stayed my arm as
he came back at me?
Perhaps as I descended I thought I would let him win, I felt my strength dwindling but I stood up ready again to begin.
We fight becuase we are the men with peeling posters of Ali on the wall, we fight because when we where kids
we would be watching from the stalls.
Just because we are fighters, it doesn't mean the blows don't sting.
But now we come to think of it, to the crowds that means nothing.

A grievance in my heart, oh god it hurts!
This languishing pain ever does burn.

Lo! I wish this were only mellow drama, but Thou art a wretched shadow.
Afflicted by luckless ailment of soul and spirit.
Oh tell me heartless god!

What penance would you have me pay to relieve my aching heart?

For it is a cruel and twisted design to give such creatures pain.
I am driven to this madness.

I find no comfort.
Upon my bed
I toss and turn.
Though the moonlight does illuminate me,
my shifting thoughts are not discerned.
Nor does it bring me any comfort,
that on my skin the moonlight sleeps.
Slumbering with one eye open,
the other softly weeps.

My brother the martial artist.
He had never lost a fight.
But then one day he did -
now we don't talk anymore.
At night I remember watching him stare at the wall.
Serenaded by bassline harmonies to remove the pain of it all.
Once he broke his jaw - I never heard it again.
In my bathroom there are cottonballs of blood - smells of eastern oils.
The sink is faintly stained from cuts he'd rather not recall.
He comes home late at night.
He has won the fight, at least it seems.
But the toll is ever growing.
Tonight he has lost some teeth.
Somehow he recoils, when I try to help.
But like the lonely hedgehog, the person he hurts is himself.

Like watching the last episode of a series.
A foreboding air is clear from the opening line.
My heart. Episodic in it's beating passion...
I will soon go off air.
A palpitating rhythm convults beneath the skin.
The core, a tome of solitude will burst soon - outside in.
The carthesis has drawn and the stage of my body is all set.
This tragedy is... I'm Antony.
I can't even fall on my sword right.
Miming along -
"Coz I can't even look into your eyes"
It's so true, thanks Rivers I'll just fold over and die.
Beating with blood my cheeks are a false friend.
A boyish guise to attempt and disguise...
I think I'm in love.
I understand the feelings but fail to explain.
Trice felt before and then double twice done again.
This beating deep inside me - stretched skin over drum paine.
I swear there is a rhythm to life.
...I swear I'll let my heart dance tonight.
