Stigma

They're Here / Arizona / It's You / Never Know / Blue Highs / Inside / Getting Through / She Bleeds / Dog / The Light That Burns Twice As Bright

They're Here
(Music that exists, simply for its own sake)

I'm breathing with a sinking earth
Gasping for air feeling hurt
Showing my rage as I turn the pages
Reading the words and between the spaces
Could it be, could it only be
The things that have been left to bleed
Tell me the earth turns for the worst
I'll tell your words are blind and cursed

I'm waiting for the world to change
Turn around, change the way
We breed ignoration of beauty and creation
A non stop battle with life at the saddle
Could it be, could it only be
The things that have been left to bleed
Tell me now with all honesty
This precious world of yours is free

And if you see me staring
You know that I'm not here
I'm searching for reasons to overcome the fear

They're here, they're here, around me
He stands, he stands, beside me
Could it be could it only be

Competing with the loud demands
See the sights and hear the sounds
Of desperation of war and creation
The earth must cost and now we're faking
Could it be, could it only be
Chances slip through our fingertips
Tell me the earth turns for the worse
I'll tell your words are not the first

repeat chorus

Arizona
Amongst all my come downs
I've seen the sun rise over my head
It's something can't be seen or said
To feel your world turn inside out

And if we have these visions
To define our state of mind
The beauty of this and all it holds
And all the feelings we find

Love your state of mind
And the beauty of this
Is in the feeling you find

Here with our close friends
We haven't exchanged a word all night
But felt the comfort of being
With others who has also seen

And if we're on this mission
To define our state of mind
The beauty of this and all it holds
Is in every time we tried

(chorus)

There are no remnants here
Just a swathe of bright light
That spreads in the distance
And starts our imagination to fly

And if we're on collision
To defy our state if mind
The danger of this and all it holds
Is in all the feelings we find

[ Back to top ]

It's You (That Leaves Me Dry)
I feel like a world gone crazed
At the thought of you
Your hot ways still chill
I'm closing in on you
Temptation never leaves me
But leaves me every once and a while
And it's you, it's you
That leaves me dry every time

And I only need to take it so far
Before all these tears leave their smears
And the thoughts of you disappear

It's you, it's you
That leaves me dry every time

Torch my soul and leave the core
You take it all, you take it all
And you can take this and more
Just before I shut the door

All these tears leave their smears
And the thoughts of you disappear

(chorus)

We gotta go down south
Just about as far as you gotta go
Across the border
You know the way it goes

(repeat chorus)

[ Back to top ]

Never Know
Oh Mother
There's a hole in my side
And comfort is only a need of mine
And I'll get lonely
At any chance that I might get

Your arms can't hold what's gone on inside
And you'll see just what you want me to be
And I'll be fine just as soon as I find

If the words I say
Throw and sway
I've seen myself mixed up
I've never had this much
Your heart always beats
You will always sleep
And you would never know

You say you've won a part in life
I say, you've been bitten by the cold
And you'll swing at any chance that you might get

(chorus)

If the words I say
Throw and sway
I've seen myself mixed up
I've never had this much

The words I say
Seem maybe tame
I've seen my mixups
Never really come to much

(chorus) x 2

Maybe I should find a place to hide
Or maybe burn down the place I hide
And I get lonely at any chance I might get
And I'll get lonely just as soon as I find
Some hope
Some truth
Let it be born again
And you need never know

(chorus)

[ Back to top ]

Blue Highs
(It's just a dream)

Yellow planes fly
I follow without asking why
Scared of bigger things
And thngs that pass me by

All my friends would follow
Happy always till tomorrow
For my weaknesses they mock me
Love me, cut me and rock me

Crazy head spins
I took it without asking where
I got it from
And at the time I didn't care

My whole head hollows
As my lost spirit follows
In the end I don't know how
But I got there

Crazy head spinning
Take more time thinking
Then falling from blue highs

And time is what I want (x 4)
And time is fatal
And time is what I...

Old men plot
I reason without asking why
I have no god
But I'm sure there's something in the sky
Hear something listens
And every deep cut glistens
In the end I don't know how
But I got there

Old men plotting
Take more time rotting
Then falling from dim eyes

And time is what I want (x 4)

(chorus)

(It's just a dream)

Old men plodding
Take more time running
Then falling from dim eyes

(Your whole life, it's just a dream)

It's fatal, but time is what I want (x 4)

(It's just a dream)

(Your whole life, it's just a dream)

Inside
Hunched up touch up
I've seen myself and all I've fucked up
I've been sold a million times
It's just as well
I can take it from time to time
Fine
Did you forget you had it inside you
You always had it inside you

Gone far looked hard
I've seen myself and all I've messed up
I've been told a million times
It's just as well
I can see as the signs go by
Fine
Did you forget you had it inside you
You always had it inside you

And I've lost all reason
I've got nothing to believe in
And it hurts to see you

I've seen you I've seen you
I've been with you I've lived for you
I've seen our emotion pass away
And left us with nothing to say
Shame
Did you forget you had it inside you
You always had it inside

[ Back to top ]

Getting Through
I'm too honest when I'm scared
When I first looked in I was young and cared

These are ways of getting through

I left my trust on the tail of youth
We were so unsure of the things we'd seen

These are ways of getting through
These are things I do for you
And ask me and ask me
I'll be there too

I never learned to ask what's fair
It's just the words we use take us there

(chorus)

I never touch fortune
And never regret
It's just a simple task
To touch your depths

(chorus)

I never touch fortune
And never regret
It's just a simple task
To touch your depths
And I'm always too honest when I'm scared
When I first looked in I was young and cared

(chorus)

[ Back to top ]

She Bleeds
I met her on a midnight flight
From Mexico to San Delight
I saw her on a top floor bar
That glows flourescent from afar

She's real to me

I have a place for my feelings
Beneath purple curtained ceilings
And when I wanted to be free
I said to her to leave me be

She left alone

And she think that tomorrow holds
Things you remember from your past

I saw her on a railway station
As I passed some faded destination
I saw her smiling in a crowd
When we played some far off distant land

I felt so alone

And you thought you were taking risks
The chances you took would never last

She's real to me

I saw her in an alleyway
Street lights dim with frustration
She comes at night when I pray
And brings a moment of elation

I've seen her distance coming near
I almost want her to be here
But when she comes she disappears
I'd wait if I was patient

And you don't know what cages are
Cages don't always have bars

[ Back to top ]

Dog
Bring out your dead thoughts
Let's start again
Building to break
Nuture to hate
Your title
Your reason to be

Part of something when I know it
When I'm high
Part of nothing when I know it
When I crack

And I could be your god
I could be your law
And I could be your dog
And I could be more

And I could be your
Tinker tailor soldier sailor rich man poor man male or female
Look in detail for a sign
The crown of thorns is mine
Be my suspect
My accessory to murder
Cause I wanna get on further

(chorus)

My life depends on drops
For what I am and what I'm not
All I ever wanna be
Is only a shadow of how you see me

And if you didn't look
Being a part of it requires dedication
It's what I need
It's inspiration
It's what I feed on
It's what I need when I bleed
Empty head empty head empty head

[ Back to top ]

The Light That Burns Twice As Bright
You had it hard, it's all that you knew
You made me know it, I've been there too
Working so hard, is life so much
Days that cut, nights to touch

I need a sign to find my way
I need to trust, I need to pray
But I always turn away

I always fail, it's part of my life
Trying is murder, success no further
The grass gets greener and it all comes clearer
And when I see her, there's a whole lot of fear

I need a sign to find my way
I need to touch, I need to pray
But I always turn away
Life
World
You're going to burn

Burn, you're gonna burn
Beautiful life beautiful world
You're gonna burn, you're gonna burn

You walk the earth
Your paths layed down
Forward motion never turn around
Your words are worth a handful of ties
I'll let you loose on these feelings of mine

(chorus)
