Enter Sandman

Say your prayers little one.
Don't forget my son to include everyone.
I'll tuck you in warm within.
Keep you free from sin til the sandman he comes.

Sleep with one eye open.
Gripping your pillor tight.
Exit light enter night.
Take my hand we're 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 yeah.

Sleep with one eyes open.
Gripping your pillow tight.
Exit light enter night.
Take my hand we're 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 land.


Sad But True

Hey I'm your life.
I'm the one who takes you there.
Hey I'm your life.

They they betray.
I'm your only true friend now.
They they betray.
I'm the one who cares.

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 youe 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 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.
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 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', the one who took you there.
Hey I'm your life.
And I no longer care.

I'm your dream make you real.
I'm your eyse when you must steal.
I'm your pain wqhen you can't feel.
Sad but true.
I'm your truth telling lies.
I'm your reason alibies.
I'm inside open your eyes.
I'm you sad but true.


Holier Than Thou

No more the crap rolls out your mouth again.
Haven't changed your brain is still gelatin.
Many whispers circle around your head.
Why don't you worry about yourself instead.
Who are ya? where ya been? where ya from?.
Gossip 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 something better to do.
Point the finger slow to understand.
Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand.
It's not who you are but who you know.
Other's lives are thebasis of your own.
Burn your bridges and 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.
Yeah who the hell are you?.


The Unforgiven

Newborn joins this eath and quickly he's subdued.
Through constant pained disgrace the young boy learns the rules.
With time this child crawls in this whipping boy done wronhg.
Deprived of all his thoughts a 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 lon.
ger 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 thee unforgiven.

You labeled me I'll label you.
So I dub thee unforgiven.


Wherever I May Roam

And the road becomes my bride.
I am stripped of all but pride.
So in her I do confide 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.
Im free to speak my mind anywhere.
And I'll redefine anywhere.
Anywhere I 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 And I'll never mind anywhere.
Anywhere I roam where I lay my head is home.

But I'll take my time anywhere.
I'm free to speak my mind.
And I'll take my find anywhere.
Anywhere I roam where I lay my head is home that's right.

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.
Onve you provoke her rattling of her tail.
Never begins it never but once engaged.
Never surrenders showing the fangs of rage.
So 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 will hear evermore.
Don't tread on me.

Love it or leave it she with the deadly bite.
Quick is the blue tongue forkes is the lightning strike.
Shining with brightness always in surveilance.
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 will 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 of 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 will 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.
Limitation of the human understanding.
Too quick to criticize.
Obligation to survive.
We hunger to stay alive.

All that is ever.
Ever was will be ever.
Twisting turning through the never.

In the dark see past our eyes.
Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies.
Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens.
On a questmeaning reason.
Come 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 to the edge of forever.
We must go one through the never.
Then never comes.

All that is ever.
Ever was will be ever.
Twisting turning.
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 art.
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 f.
rom the heart.
Forever trusting who we art.
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 ourse 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 mid for a different view.
And nothing else matters.

Never cared fo 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 nomatter how far.
Couldn't be much more from the heart.
Forever trusting who we art.
No nothing else matters.


Of Wolf and Man

Off though thenew day's mist I run.
Out from thenew day's mist I have come.
I hunt therefore I am.
Harvest the land taking of the fallen lamb.
Off through the new day's mist I run.
Out from thenew day's mist I have come.
We shift pulsing with the earth.
Company we keep raoming the land while you sleep.

Shape shift nose to the wind.
Shape shift feeling I've been.
Move swift all senses cleaned.
Earth's gift back to the meaning of life.

Bright is the moon high in starlight.
Chill in 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 cleaned.
Earth's gift back to the meaning of life.

I feel a change back to a better day.
Hair stands in 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 cleaned.
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 you hear the discouragin 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 on 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 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 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.


My Friend of Misery

You just stood their screaming.
Fearing no one was listening to you.
They say the empty can rattles the most.
The sound of your own voice must soothe you.
Hearing only what you want to hear.
And knowing only what you heard.
You you're smothered in tragedy.
And you're out to save the word.

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 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 all on 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 screaming.
My friend of misery.


The Struggle Within

Reacing 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 to lose?.
What the hell what is it 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 you've got to feel.
Closing in the pressure upon you is so unreal.

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 got to feel.
While clutching to what you had thought was real.
What the hell.
What is it you think you're gonna find?.
Hypocrite boredom sets intot eh boring mind.

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