Blood Soaked Dollar Bills

As the sun awakens 
It rises over the lovelorn hills
The red sky is an initiation 
For these blood soaked dollar bills 
The hotels are full of ideas
Take your love
And take the rest of your day
Because If the hills had eyes
They still couldn’t hear all that people say 
Life seems like nothing but a means to an end 
For some it never began 
The hateful shed a tear
Only when they draw a line in the sand 

On the Inside

I’ve seen patience on the wayside baby!
Focus on the hocus-pocus lately
With soap on my jersey
Walking on tiptoes past evil
Feeling like the moon is my valentine
Losing my illusion
Blast from the past

Is this a contusion?
Or did i just fall on my ass?
What do you say?
When all the wind knocks you over
And you haven’t got a clue
Smiling contradictions
It really is the worst
Focused by the witness’s knife
Until the end

Have you seen the tombs or the holy graves?
Patience, with electric switches
Turn up your life
Mouth’s open, mugshot, you are no king tut
Brace yourself
As you find there is no way out

Say Hey

We tumble down the hills

Trying to find fun

Isn’t equivalent

To where we run
And Hey, there ain’t much else to say
Because I like life this way
I just hope I stay ok

I have been until this day

 

Let’s hope we can live past today

Let’s hope we find a way

The sun is burning my wings
Never thought it’d be like this
Didn’t believe the fat lady could sing

Or all this could conclude

So many before me

So many to come 

Hey, there ain’t much else to say
Because I like life this way
I just hope I stay ok

I have been until this day

 

The Solemn War

 

Hello little babe

You’re the type the keeps the blood pumping
Smile one more time
You really are something

Loving from afar

Influence from the outside
Can’t you tell

That she can’t decide

It’s getting warmer out

Seen more short sleeves and boats
I don’t mean to pout

But I lost all reason to boast

 

The sky is bright
Defeat is glowing

I hate uncertainty

I want to know where I’m going
