Song Lyrics

Constantly Disappointed Toleration

Constantly Disappointed Toleration
I’ve been searching all my life Looking for the answer Looking for the picture in me Looked in shadows looked in trees Read every book checked every key I’m still missing absently

Always searching for Someone to lead Looking outwards For inspiration Perhaps the answers near Perhaps unclear Just a case Disappointed toleration

Just a sad game Of con and conviction Just a sad game Full of Contradictions

I’ve been searching all my life Looking for the answer Looking for the picture in me Searched in shadows searched in trees Read every book checked every key I’m disappointed constantly

Always searching for Someone to lead Looking outwards For inspiration Perhaps the answers near Perhaps unclear Just a case Disappointed toleration

Emotional Meltdown

Emotional Meltdown
Is it you Is it me Is it true Is it free Is it now Has it gone Is it love Is it strong Could you be What I need Could it be As decreed Yours to flaunt So confused Don’t want to see Time to go To the hanging tree Emotional meltdown

Finding night in the middle of the day Can’t clearly see to find my way Firmly stuck in cloying mud Ebbing out my life blood

Emotional meltdown Emotional meltdown

Close at hand But far away Near to touch Can you stay All I want Is your time What I need Is that a crime I don’t know Could you be What I need Could it be As decreed Yours to flaunt So confused Don’t want to see Time to go To the hanging tree Emotional meltdown

Somebody to Love

Somebody to Love
Jefferson Airplane

When the truth is found To be lies And all the joy Within you dies

Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to love, love

When the garden flowers Baby, are dead, yes And your mind, your mind Is so full of red

Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to love

Your eyes, I say your eyes May look like his Yeah, but in your head, baby I'm afraid you don't know where it is

Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to love

Tears are running They're all running down your dress And your friends, baby They treat you like a guest

Don't you want somebody to love Don't you need somebody to love Wouldn't you love somebody to love You better find somebody to love

The Puzzle Tree

The Puzzle Tree
Got to prove Prove to you My love My love is true Get me past The royal guards Avoid their swords And sharpened barbs Let me see The Puzzle Tree Find its answers Pay the fee Let the blood Pool on the floor It spells your name That’s Loves Game Feeling my way Through the dark Through the day Got to get into your heart For more than just a day

Take me back To the Puzzle Tree Let me find Find the key Take the key Unlock the code Let me see How to erode Erode the barrier That stands between Between us And our dreams Crack the secret Win the game Kiss your lips Stake my claim

I need to find A way into your heart For more than just a day

Got to prove Prove to you My love My love is true Get me past The royal guards Avoid their swords And sharpened barbs Take me back To the Puzzle Tree The conundrum That’s you and me Let me hold And kiss you tight Let me kiss you Through the night

Feeling my way Through the dark Through the day Got to get into your heart For more than just a day

Let me into your heart Let’s get ready to start I love you I love You

Take It All

Take It All
Evil sun on a blackend sky Rain gleams on the castle so high Hopes dashed as they walk on by Lover’s dream of Versailles Clouds of doom Hide the moon Intimidation fills the room Your eyes peer through the spikey gloom You weren’t born with no silver spoon

Whatever you want to do It’s all up to you Leave this world behind Take a trip, take a ride, take the Sun Take your mind Take it All

Ice Lake shatters and cracks Bees die by the axe Rain forests shed a tear Speeches just a veneer

Take what you see Take all their guarantees Take what you see No need to disagree

Take it all Take it now Take it now But Take it All

Collapsing around our ears No answers want to appear Seven billion way too much World leaders so out of touch Scorch the earth to feed mankind Pollute the seas were all blind Plastic mountains touch the sky Where’s our voice our outcry

Whatever you want to do It’s all up to you Leave this world behind Take a trip, take a ride, take the Sun Take your mind Take it All

Looking forward To my past

Looking forward To my past
Take me off This ethereal plain Take me away From this loosing game Reach out Buff the glaze Alice’s spell Is just a haze

Gazing through the Looking glass Looking forwards To my past Take me through The Looking Glass Try to find My boarding pass

Board a train Break the Imperious reign Take a stroll Down the Rabbit Hole Pass on by The pool of Tears Hide behind Your crippling fears

Take me through The Looking Glass Try to find My boarding pass

Start the race The winners in final place Take a pill Pay that little bill See the mushrooms Peer through the gloom Take a drink Watch your ego shrink

Gazing through the Looking glass Looking forwards To my past Take me through The Looking Glass Try to find My boarding pass

Take me through The Looking Glass

Looking forwards To my past

Take me through The Looking Glass

Stay

Stay
Stay And be kind to me Stay Life’s no guarantee

If only you could see What’s happening to me

You’d stay You’d stay You’d stay with me

Stay Give me all your love Stay I’m not the one your sick of

A dimming sunlit glow Is all I’ll have to show

Just stay Just stay Just stay with me

Tears of Blood

Tears of Blood
Heaven’s crying Tears of blood People lying Disasters and flood Heaven’s crying Drops from above No one’s trying To stem the flood

Political Lies Expedient truths Find your way Through the Labyrinths They don’t care Heaven’s crying Tears of blood

Religion lies Politicians crawl Why do we listen They’ll kill us all Heaven’s crying Drops from above No one’s trying To stem the flood

Heaven’s crying Reddening the mud Heaven’s crying Tears of blood

All our leaders Steal and lie We still listen Although we cry Heaven’s crying Drops from above No one’s trying To stem the flood

Political Lies Expedient truths Find your way Through the Labyrinths They don’t care Heaven’s crying Tears of blood

African Skies

African Skies
Swirling across The arid Plain Dust taints the sky Water holes dry Crops all gone Just waiting for Time to die

African skies Majestic and cruel Save your remorse For tomorrow African skies Mountains so tall Earth blood red With sorrow

Struggles continue Over the Land Slaughter night and day Some people claim The Land is theirs But history's in the way

African skies Majestic and cruel Save your remorse For tomorrow African skies Mountains so tall Earth blood red With sorrow

Now it’s time To count the cost Hate and intolerance abide Corruption means Poverty and death People just try to survive

African skies Majestic and cruel Save your remorse For tomorrow African skies Mountains so tall Earth blood red With sorrow

When it’s Time

When it’s Time
Time to lie Time cry Time to design Drink that wine Time to dance Time for romance Time to reflect On times affect

You always think That there’s time Time to finish What you plan When it’s time Check the clock Times just flown away

Time to atone Time to condone Time to plan Make a stand Time to float Buy that boat Time to scream In your dream

You always think That there’s time Time to finish What you plan When it’s time Check the clock Times just flown away

Time to lie Time cry Time to plan Make a stand Time to scream In your dream When it’s time When it’s time When it’s time

Time’s Only Borrowed

Time’s Only Borrowed
Catch your breath Grab the light Snatch the beams From their flight Let’s all fly away Let’s all get away Let’s Escape today

Time to live is now Time to give and how Let’s all live for today Let’s all live for today

Life’s short There’s no tomorrow Life’s short Time’s only borrowed Life’s short There’s no tomorrow Let’s just live for today

Take a chance Change your scene Leave your past In the review screen See the sun Reflecting on a mountain stream Eating cherries Covered in cream You can do it It’s not a dream

Let’s all fly away Escape for today

Time to live is now Let’s Just live for today

Life’s short There’s no tomorrow Life’s short Time’s only borrowed Let’s just live for today

Catch your breath Grab the light Snatch the beams From their flight

Let’s all fly away Let’s all Escape today

Life’s short There’s no tomorrow Life’s short Time’s only borrowed Let’s all live for today
