Track Name: One Time
one time i went lost on the sea
she made a fool out of me
and i know that my head was on fire
destined in ruin and awake
fingers start tremble and shake
in these chains that was fought in desire
what`d i say?
one time in love
oh, what`d i say?

two time i was left without a clue
wonder could i live without you?
i was sure that this love had gone higher
destined in ruin and awake
fingers start tremble and shake
in these chains that was fought in desire
what`d i say?
one time in love
oh, what`d i say?

you force it down i gotta cough it up
whatever comes out
comes out

that was right for one time

Track Name: There Are Worse Things Than Being Alone
I love the way my life has gone oh yeah
Like a caged up rat loves the wheel he's on oh yeah
For all I have I've worked so hard oh yeah
I didn't grow my food didn't build my car oh yeah
Oh yeah

-chorus-
All that I had gave me the blues
There are worse things than being alone
All that I have I'll never use
There are worse things than being alone
All that I fear I had to choose
There are worse things than being alone
All that I love I'm gonna lose
There are worse things than being alone

I'm tired of the same routine oh yeah
And I'm scared of what I've never seen oh yeah
Tomorrow I will change my ways oh yeah
And when I die I will die today oh yeah
Oh yeah

repeat chorus

Lonely man
Understands
Wasted time

All that I had gave me the blues
All that I have I'll never use
All that I fear I had to choose
All that I love I'm gonna lose
All that I love I'm gonna lose
All that I love I'm gonna lose
Track Name: Christine
on my horse when
you were dying
once forsaken
the total of all that remained
you my hope and
dream of life and
felt the toll that
was taken in so many ways
all my children that
lie in waiting
sweet refusals a
father not wanted to know
i your favored
fiend and liar
raining down
like some voice
in my head that said

-chorus-

one more
seems fine
isn`t how you make it
hold on
she`s mine
beat my skull then sink away
all the way

pain and mourning
walking silent
carry forward a
sad that was so long ago
faith in shadow
broken keeping
shine like fires that
lighted my way
to the road
now i`m standing
no more hiding
weren`t so different from
always just gave it a name
i your favored
fiend and liar
raining down
like some voice
in my head that said

repeat -chorus-

for christine
i would break
on the rock like a wave
hold your hand
in the sun
where the song has an end

repeat -chorus-
Track Name: Bitch
a bitch in disgrace
i`m over
what never would
take me over.....
soon
arrested to tame
the monster
whatever was
waking up in-
side
a naked display

-chorus-
seeded desire would turn
(on the one-cent-ride, yeah)
she blame the fire for burn

a moment to lay
beside me
in thinkin` of
everything
in life
that ripped with a pain
undaunted
and seconds away
from open
fire
a message delay

repeat -chorus-

could never know
what it means
to run you down
space in time
a wasted dream
full of faith
and all that pray
to shoot me down
and end me.....
soon
i wasted my days

repeat -chorus-
Track Name: Castration
into the world you're thrown
your will is not your own
you're dead the day you're born
they got 'ya (castration)
you better fall in line
live by their rules and time
they knows what's yours is mine
they got 'ya (frustration)
they keep you wanting more
open then close the door
they tell you rich n' poor
they got 'ya (castration)
they know just what you need
what you think and believe
they suck the air you breathe
they got 'ya (frustration)

-chorus-
you never get what you deserve
stand down and leave it all behind

they promise heaven go
they threaten hell below
they give you god to know
they got 'ya (castration)
some girl won't let you in
some guy won't let you win
they don't know where you been
they got 'ya (frustration)
they bleed you 'til you dry
laugh at you 'til you cry
give up before you try
they got 'ya (castration)
you won't amount to shit
this all you gonna get
better get used to it
they got 'ya (frustration)

repeat -chorus-

empty hole i fill with my disgrace
hopeful i can`t feel you anymore
crawl away into my resting place
hopeful i can`t feel you anymore
(castration)
Track Name: Finches
in a waking dream of ancient things
that lie in open graves
what can`t be denied from me and mine
that pained us for how long?
innocence and shame for who`s to blame?
a troubled keeping down
little girl in size for victimized
of one that would not speak

-chorus-

you take it
you make it
only now.....
feelin` it breakin` me for down
come to light
am i open season?
for what was done
a little girl i know
you were the monster in the dark
here i come
so don`t worry `bout it
yeah i know about it
hide from me no more

force into a maze of endless days
a struggle to move on
shining brightly now a sacred cow
that cried for nevermore
innocence and shame for who`s to blame?
a troubled keeping down
little girl in size for victimized
of one that would not speak

repeat -chorus-

feel it
find it
feel where the sun stays down
call it finch
call it finch
Track Name: Gold and Opal
weary, winds through driving rain
summer, once to feel again
i`m gone
desperate, hours who walk from shame
love who wants to feel the same
i`m gone
figments, now that war inside
sunny home where demons hide
i`m gone
gold and opal
waning now
the race is run
you, my only
all that makes
a lie
figments, now
that war inside
sunny home
where demons hide
i`m gone
