Riding The Boogy Oogy Train Of Life


The Reaper

September 28, 2017
I think I've held my breath for too long
I think I've relied on faith maybe I'm wrong 
This whole house is crumbling down
I'm falling into this decaying ground

That's when I heard the reaper calling 
In the graveyard where I'd been crying 
He said I'll ease your pain just give me your soul
Only then can I take you home

I hoped I'd find relief in the living 
I hoped I'd find peace in giving 
Only demons stood by when no one else did
Any warmth for this soul God forbid
 
That's when I heard the reaper calling 
In the graveyard where I'd been crying 
He said I'll ease your pain just give me your soul
Only then can I take you home

I ripped my heart out only to burn
Love's no sanctuary I should've learned
He keeps calling and I'm falling 
Seems this graveyard where I'm dying

That's when I heard the reaper calling 
In the graveyard where I'd been crying 
He said I'll ease your pain just give me your soul
Only then can I take you home

I think I've held my breath for too long
I think I've relied on faith maybe I'm wrong 
This whole house is crumbling down
I'm falling into this decaying ground


 

I Need to Know

September 20, 2017
Hello empty casket, are you waiting for me
It's been so long since I've felt alive
I've spent my life drinking life's poison tea
Society doesn't really care if I survive 

Hello judgmental world, tell me if I'm wrong 
If love is supposed to cure us all
Why does the hatred go on for so long
I've never felt I mattered at all

If today ends how will you remember me
I need to know
That my existence made you smile at least
That I was good enough just being me
I need to know 
I need to know 
I need to know 
That so...

My Love is a Curse

June 25, 2017
Haunted by the lullaby in the waves
Your eyes lingering in the sky
I'm trying to push it all away
I can't let this heart feel again
Bring on this hurricane let me fade

Let the winds blow
Let the rain fall
Take me where I stand
I have to let go
It's best for all
Take me from this land

Cause if I love you
I'll only break you
I'll only hurt you
My love is a curse
It's best I spare you
I can't let myself love you
Or let you love me

Haunted by the poetry of your soul
I can hear your voice in the winds
Deafen these so...

Maybe It's Meant To Be This Way

June 25, 2017
I've come to the conclusion 
That I'm meant to walk alone
I've let go of the illusion 
Not everyone finds home
But it's ok, I'll be ok
Maybe it's meant to be this way

Some people are meant to fly
While others ill fatedly survive 
Maybe it's meant to be this way
Fighting a pain that always stays
We're all a little broken
But maybe it's meant to be this way

Tears travel farther than feet
It's just a reality we must face
Some of us will never feel relief 
Yearning for a comforting place
Solitude makes me wanna ...

If Heaven Could Wait

May 27, 2017
Another flower petal picked up by the breeze 
Flying, hoping, soaring hungry for life
Dying without the stem of a body to keep 
Swearing love of a silent heartbeat never dies

If only heaven could wait a little longer
But the labor in your breathing says no
Pretending I'm stronger makes it harder
I don't wanna let you go, I don't 
I'll feel a little dead when you go home
Oh if heaven could wait a little longer
If heaven could wait a little longer

Another sunset sitting by your barred bed
Hoping, wishing, ...

Paper Sailboat

April 1, 2017
Typical moonlight kissing river waves
Tell me what your insides crave
It's in the way everyone behaves
Like nothing really matters 
Is there anything left to say
I wonder
Will it be too late
You'll never ask me to stay

Hold on tight, the waves are creeping in
I'm just standing here in the sand waiting 
For the reasons, not to sail away
And I'm bleeding but breathing 
And I'm dreaming believing 
Just a fool in a paper sailboat 
Ready to sail away
Keep breathing

Typical thunder my aching hunger
The skies don't ...

Break

January 16, 2017
I waited for the innocence 
Of the daytime sunshine  
But found no comfort in its presence 
I waited for the sun to set
And found peace in the moonlight 
I feel like there's nothing left
In my worthless self

There's no hope in those stars
No sound coming from this broken guitar
Only fever in this sick heart
I'm smiling all the while I'm falling apart 
I'll face the world like I'm alright 
Twisting my bones until I get it right

Break break break break break
But don't let anyone see
Break break break break br...

Raven In The Night

November 26, 2016
It's getting dark but my eyes
Are still chasing your silhouette 
It's getting cold but this heart
Hasn't iced over yet
Come to me raven of the night

My breath blows a fog
But I'm warmed in desire
The snow starts to fall
But my skin burns like fire
Melting ice in the echoes of your call
Come to me raven of the night

Run run run 
Like a beacon in the night
Chasing your silhouette 
I feel your scent lingering my bones
Come to me raven in the night
Let this passion unfold
Let the storms collide 
Of fire and ice
Com...

Stupid Girl

November 26, 2016
What have I done with this life of mine
Think I've lost the time drinking too much wine
Drunk by the night so I can hide

Smile you stupid girl
Pretend you're fine, stupid girl
Till you get home 
And you're only friend is alcohol 
Drink until you don't feel at all
Drink until you fall asleep 
Maybe this time your demons will forget to weep

What has become of this beating heart
Think it may die soon
Cuz what's the use
When no one's gonna love this broken heart

Smile you stupid girl
Pretend you're fine, stupid...

Trash From Your Garage

November 26, 2016
Sometimes I wonder what it'd be like
To fall asleep and never reawake
Would I go home to that place way up high
Or am I already too late

Many times I wonder if I'd be missed 
When I'm gone or just missed for what I could do
Would I make your grievers list
Or become just an ignorant who

Cuz I can't shake this feeling I'm just a go to
When I'm needed then thrown like the trash from your garage 
I'm lonely and forgotten 
This mistaken heart needs love too
But I'm a mirage
I'm a mirage 
And I'm starting not to...
