about

This is sort of a 'filler' album. Most of you who know my music have probably heard these songs already. These songs were never meant to be a part of any album as they were written during sporadic periods in my life. With that being said, I've found that they all still tell one big story. Although care has been taken during the writing of these songs, i can't say that overall this album is the best in terms of mixing. For that i apologize. I just felt that i needed to let go.

Track Name: Prophet!!!!
waste a prayer on me,
and send them to the sky
god is a disease,
that lives inside the mind
Track Name: Lost
(verse 1)
my wish to you
is that you get better
my hope for you
is that you look beyond the letters
pretending has poisoned your mind
you tell me to open my eyes

(verse 2)
i tried to choose
an open path to my salvation
i saw right through
the perfect plans and misdirections
religion has poisoned my mind
ive finally opened my eyes

(pre chorus)
if you think that i would carry on
living life in shackles
...i dont think so

(chorus)
lost and empty
im running away from you
...and your lies
(that opened a hole in me)
lost and empty
severed my ties with you
...ill survive
(the burden of my unbelief)

pray on someone else
prey on someone else
I'm tired of this fuckin' bullshit
Track Name: Pet
Im the creator, i assemble toy pets with my twine
Another senseless idea from faded blueprints of you
I know Im hasty
I forgot that small piece of your soul
Ill patch you up with the rags that hide the hole in my heart

I designed you to be perfect
But maybe I just cant see...
...perfect's so far away for me
I designed you to be loyal
But maybe that just cant be...
...you want nothing to do
With me

(Pet)
Shaking and scratching
And kicking and gnashing
my way through this misery
Why do I have to be
here?
In this darkness
a cold damp oblivion
What does this all mean?
could someone please throw me a line with some hope
And some prayer and salvation
it has to mean something
this life that im living
more questions than answers
that I wont be hearing
No gun to my head
never asked me to be here
With you

(Creator)
I am a tailor 
I can stitch you together with parts
Bind you from portions I have all that I need for my plan
Somehow youre broken just when all the fragments have been fixed
My little rebel i do all that I can to help you

I designed you to be loving
But hatred is all you see.....i hope someday you will be free
I designed you to be holy
But whats this supposed to mean?
Stare right through me 
Like I'm a disease

(Pet)
Shaking and scratching
And kicking and gnashing
my way through this misery
Why do I have to be
here?
In this darkness
a cold damp oblivion
What does this all mean?
could someone please throw me a line with some hope
And some prayer and salvation
it has to be something
this life that im living
more questions than answers
that I wont be hearing
No gun to my head
never asking to be here
With you
I am done
all this poking and prodding
Just leave me alone here
no Love and compassion
What part of my life makes no sense in your head
Its a souless existence
youd think id be better off dead
To the world its a joke
As I see it
Theres nothing to gain
by you trapping me here
I dont care about this or of your master plan
So dont bother me with this fuckin' shit
how do you think I feel?
Track Name: The Way Out
Always waiting
Always wanting more
I'm sure someday i'll find it
I'm sure someday i'll score
I need to be inside you
I need to be within
I need you to deny me
I need you to begin...

To tell me how it ends
Can you show me the way out
Could you let me see the light
I wanna live a life....
I wanna live a life....
Without you

This addiction
This addiction kills
There is always a good reason
And there's always the thrill
I have to be inside you
I have to be within
You have to deny me
You have to begin

To tell me how it ends
Can you show me the way out
Could you let me see the light
I wanna live a life....
I wanna live a life....
Without you

Pictures in the wall
Show that we had it all
Just a simple little thing
That destroyed my pride

Nothing broke the fall
And my worlds feeling small
It was just one fling
Now I'm dead inside
Track Name: Bridge
(verse 1)
i screamed at god
and troubled him
searched for his heart
and died within

I’ve questioned life
and prayed for death
when you escaped
and left a mess

wanted to leave
all this behind
to disappear
i should’ve tried

you blamed the choice
on signs above
would angels laugh
if i had jumped

(chorus)
i tried to live
and fix this without you
but the path below
had chosen me

i tried to live
and carry my burdens
down the stormy road
of misery

(verse 2)
i scratched my eyes
till nothings left
visions of you
so meaningless

lost in this world
a hollow shell
of who i was
you couldn’t tell

i hate that love
can bring you down
it works for some
but others drown

struggle to fight
this constant sin
can’t choose a side
i can’t forgive

(chorus)
Track Name: I'd Give Anything (Goldfish Named Elephant Mix)
(verse 1)

blood is on the wall
I've lived
through another casualty of love
that kept
you denying what you promised me
the life
chosen by the one who set us free
…..oh the misery

i no longer give
a shit
of the memories i had of you
i wish
i could take a pill to flush aside
whats left
floating in a place i like to hide
…..somewhere dark it seems

i cannot exist
with you
watching me with phosphorescent eyes
that bleed
with the sins of suffocating greed
I've found
you will never share this life with me
…..you are dead to me

(chorus)

id give anything to breath
just to pick up the parts of me
ill try anything to bleed
just to feel the slow release

(verse 2)

god its not my fault
i sit
broken by the boundaries of one
and think
you just like to take your hands and push
aside
something that meant more in life to me
…..you will never see

self destructive mind
amongst
souls that mirror personality
and take
what they think is good from inside me
im not
everything you make me out to be
…..go to hell you scream

staring in the dark
again
hiding from another broken friend
i think
someone should've took your hand aside
and warned
of the good in me that died inside
……someone stop me please
