Beautiful Face

I’ve built a massive wall, but can’t build up my dots

I’ll break the small rules if it will show you lot

That I’m different from you and you aren’t the same as me

And the saddest thing I know is the fate of people close to me

Shadows of movements that I can’t see

Its not the end for you but it is for me 

I am a shadow among men who is dying from regret

I’m so in love with you, are you with me?

I’m lost in your space, and I’ll just take all that I can get

 

Sometimes I think and I fret

If life’s a game then let me place my bet, but if I lose what do I get?

I’d do anything if the thoughts could leave me alone

I might be a dog to you but don’t you dare throw me a bone

And I might be different from the rest , but I understand my fate

I am a shadow among men dying from regret

I’m so in love with your eyes, but show me the rest

I’m lost in the question but let me guess

 

I gaze at the starry night, twilight via dimming lights

The ambition, dead to rights

Space between the incision

Not picture perfect, just polished with precision

And as I deal with regret, I awake up from a winter sleep scared

But I know I am living

I’m right there when you’re upset

But I am a shadow among men who is dying from regret

I’m so in love with our past, but it’s filled with descent

I’m so in love with your sighs, can you hate me one more time

As I cry from regret will you appear at my steps

When I disappear will there be any regret

When I die will you forget?

Hopes, Questions and Fears

Hopes and Fears

I wander back into the universe
Scared for my future
My hands on my face
Floating above the big cities
I see the skyscrapers
As the music gets louder
I can’t even breath
I am a spectre
I am the ghost
Burning in existence
Marching through the sky
My dreams stay in the shadows

Will you lead to follow?
Will the sky open for us tonight?
Will there be light, or forever darkness?
Questions, hopes and fears
All downplayed by the thoughts that are sincere
Whether we are on top of the world
Or below the ground
We must decide what we are to do
What is our sound
The music starts to get loud
And the night sky forms within
You feel the sun on your back
Until the end
Until the End

Jealous Gun

She’s lost now on her own

I heard her calling on my telephone

My mind wanders as my soul becomes one
Plagued by the plight of the sun

I see monsters crawling, on the run
Smoke coming from my jealous gun

 

These leaves they fall

Burning in the wind, Fresh scent on the walls
He can’t hear you when you call
Don’t mask the hate within your please

Calling for help
Something to hold onto
To stand in the cold
Light this night with kerosene

 

She’s lost in the forest, she ran away
Calling out in the distance, screaming her name

Sitting with this curse as my heart and my brain become one

Plagued by the plight of the sun
I see destruction everywhere I run
Smoke coming from my jealous gun

 

You look at me with those sorrowful eyes

Underneath all the lies

I’ve told myself on lonely years

Underneath it all
That I could overcome these childlike fears

I could persevere

Don’t worry as it starts to rain

Rain gives way to a sun
So let’s dash along and pretend to have fun

 

 

My Return

Oh there’s nowhere left to go
Nothing to see
Could you believe now that I could touch the sky
As tears flow down my cheeks, I sit and cry
With nothing left to me
What can I tell her now?
She is so beautiful and upset
How can I be there?
Floating in the distance
My heart is broken in two
And I don’t know what to do

 

Oh there’s nowhere

Nowhere to go
Nothing to see
I can’t stop, I’ve got to believe
This is the life that I wanted but how can he go
Nowhere to go

This is weakest flower blossoming
The smallest star brightening the entire sky

Oh there’s nowhere left to go
My sickly return
Limping along the corridor
The night birds Singing when the moonlight is gone
See you walking along the stars
And now as I fall as far as I can go
I just want you to know

That there is nowhere to go
And I’m stuck clinging to your soul
Oh please come back and show me the way

SONG OF THE DAY – “AGAIN”

Layne Staley is probably one of the coolest frontmen ever. A sensitive yet tortured figure of the 90s. His band Alice in Chains, created murky Grunge/Alternative Metal that touched the hearts of millions not only in the United States but to places like Brasil. I watched Alice in Chains perform in Brasil and it was crazy!
Would? is one of Alice in Chains most successful songs. The video became instant classic with the level of coolness in that room and of course that shirt! Enjoy “Would?” and experience the deep lyricism of one of Alternative Rock’s Gods.
RIP LAYNE

Hey To You

Say Hey to you 
By the big red door
Dancing to your own groove 
Taking it to the dance floor

Say Hey to you 
When you make noise late at night 
My shining neighbor 
Oh memories i’ll always savor 
Because of the way i crave her 

Say Hey To you
When we are almost broken into pieces
Don’t hurt me now 
Because you know it’s true
You never believed me 
And i never understood you
