Beguiled Ambiguity

long gone are the words to this song
Track Name: Frozen Eyes
Frozen Eyes

my eyes are frozen and icy,
rip of the lash now i can see,
the weight to bear was too heavy,
i ran for man so you could be,
i couldn't stay away (took the bait),
to my dismay (she stole my name),
so i ran across the desert,
i sparked the flame(killed by the rain),
you're all the same (you have no shame),
i've been told of a burried pleasure now,
it's all mine,
a new world unthaws my frozen eyes,
it's all mine,
well i may be young but i ain't no fool,
i've got the whole world in my arms but not you,
you can tell ’em i've been shot, they'll buy anything you say,
a million miles away you'll stay,
(took the bait), (she stole my name),
(killed by the rain), (you have no shame),
a new world unthaws my frozen eyes, it's all mine
Track Name: Electricutie
Electricutie

smoke makes you dizzy,
the coke gets you twitchy,
your money drives you crazy,
your honey's gone,
you stumble and slip scream help me i'm not sick,
that's first class bullshit,
sex you've been lookin for love,
and now you're searchin for money,
there's none to be found,
so now you're ditchin your diamonds
a daughter and son
you should know better not to blow your nose with a wife and kids at home,
it's time to smoke makes you dizzy,
the coke gets you twitchy,
the money drives you crazy,
your honey's gone,
stumble and slip scream help me i'm not sick,
time not much left on your side,
so now you're leavin your honey,
i'll see you around electricutie, so long
it's all over now you should know better but you don't, and you won't
Track Name: Breakin' At Twelve
Breakin At Twelve

woke up alive this morning,
pass a left down easy street,
can't recollect got no regrets,
i try to keep my head up above my feet,
i was gonna start at seven,
but i don't wanna go through hell,
so i started at eleven and already breakin at twelve,
what's the matter son you're movin slow and already way past strike three,
have you seen my lady luck because last time i checked she was not with me,
begged the hang man not to pull the lever, but down i fell,
that's what i get for starting at eleven, and already breakin at twelve,
now it's about that time, had to draw the line, i put my foot down through the floor,
i'm not impressed left less then a mess,
i can't handle this no more,
i started at eleven, already breakin at twelve,
yes i started at eleven,
woke up alive this morning,
pass a left down easy street,
can't recollect got no regrets,
i try to keep my head up above my feet,
i started at eleven, already breakin at twelve,
i started at eleven, i begged you not to pull the lever,
that's what i get for starting at eleven, and already breakin
Track Name: Things Will Never Change
Things Will Never Change

some things will never change,
they caught up yet so ever slightly re-arranged,
i ain't going to play this game,
you've gotta beat someone down to keep your name,
gotta stay cool for the crew don't know what's wrong with you,
and what can i do to help the bruised,
well don't speak, listen don't speak,
i know, i know, things will never change,
do you know, do you know,
i know, i know, some things will never change,
you said they wouldn't listen but we talked for days,
we tried so hard to drop it but we landed on the topic of what we thought was right and we're strong enough to fight,
get down on your knees and i will scream with all my might,
this is not what it may seem,
listen dont' speak, listen don't speak,
i know, i know, that things will never change,
do you know, do you know,
i know, i know, some things will never change,
i don't wanna go,
you will never know
Track Name: Serenity
Serenity

living one day out of time,
whats mine is yours, yours is mine,
accepting my hardships as a gateway to peace,
i'm seeing the light again,
down the hall at the very end,
tell me babe did you think that i would forget it,
so god give me the sweetest serenity,
to accept the things that one can't change,
i've seen that face a thousand times,
been nothing quite like it since the sun stopped to shine,
i just can't believe what you're trying to do to me,
tell me babe did you think that i would regret it,
so god help me, to prove or to spite me,
please please give me serenity,
not much time out of sync,
truth and lies one more drink,
it would be so easy, be a household name on everyone's tv,
tell me babe did you think that i would accept it,
god give me the sweetest serenity to accept the things that one can't change,
it's time to change,
it's not the same,
it's time to change
Track Name: Wet Whistle
Wet Whistle

remember how i'm broke because i broke the seal,
oh no don't choke you put your words back down your throat,
don't wanna hear about the way you feel,
i'm looking up although my knees are shaking,
oh my can't speak so much for curiosity,
the money's for the taking,
oh my god what have i done,
who is this devil, where does it come from,
i thought that i was having me some fun,
it's happiness is my warm gun,
blew my mind getting ready to fly,
it was a whole lotta woman, bit my lip and closed my eyes,
i wasn't gonna do it why i did i don't know why,
downed a quick one, then another, then another, time to shine,
wet my whistle,
i drowned the little devil,
wet my whistle,
i'm not looking for no trouble,
get inside, i flipped the switch,
double time, and now it's hit or miss,
pretty eyes, but which is which,
looking sleazy and you're feeling queazy,
you can love or hate it, but remember to save it,
wet my whistle,
i drowned the little devil,
wet my whistle,
and i ain't looking for no trouble,
wet my whistle

Track Name: The Rain Came
The Rain Came

i'm coming home for the summer,
hopping on the train i'm coming,
hopping on the train i'm coming home,
lost in the clouds i'm running,
shaking off the rain i hear it coming,
no rain going to take anything i own,
i've been here before i was squeaking,
now i find myself trying to sneak in,
each year i find that sneaking plain,
thunder and lightning, thunder and lightning,
thunder and lightning and then the rain came
Track Name: Seven Anthems
Seven Anthems

does it make you proud to know that you're the king,
to know your bones are safely hidden in their hollow grief,
attentions change yet the scars are growing faster,
a few mistakes, a change of pace, no point in chasing after their lies,
all of them lies,
we've been hand fed for too long so swallow your pride,
throw the book out the window one last kiss goodbye,
be strong when no angels come forward,
my song was sung, seven anthems,
not long ago you let the fire flow the thrill was fueling you,
so you hit em down and you shot em down for you and all you fools,
in and out and in and out and in and out you went,
but remorse of course is not the option when you're left for dead,
what will we do with you, what will we do,
the dogs do not want you and neither do we,
don't let that compel you, you're young and naive,
man or machine it's easy to see
who is real and who is make believe,
man or machine seven anthems we sing,
he watches from above,
you've got to believe,
I’ve wished for a lot of things,
but none of them have brought to me,
anything close to the body she wants to be,
stand by and watch and point out all my flaws,
but a sloth will not help if my hands are not claws,
applaud me and love me however you've learned,
long may you venture never return
to the path laid of anger that burns in your eyes,
down to your toes, the length of your spine,
man or machine it's easy to see,
who is real and who is make believe,
man or machine seven anthems we sing,
man or machine it's easy to see,
who is real and who is make believe,
man or machine seven anthems we sing
