Faces In Disguise

these fears come rushing in when i enter here
another layer on my back
a blazing fire where our glances meet
the largest feeling towering over me

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

i long to take you to a secret place
where we could lay aside our past
we’d throw the world away with all it’s pain
to shine like stars through storm and clouds and rain

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

go face the day, go and see new things
go face the day, but you’ll remember me…
i see a tear inside when you’re turned away
another wound that i’d take back
if i could fill your heart just once
and then i’d take you now
where we could live again

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

go face the day, go and see new things
go face the day, but you’ll remember me…

In Circles

meet me there, in the blue
where words are not, feeling
remains. sincerity
trust in me, throw myself into your door
well i go in circles running down.
oh i dream to heal your wounds
but i bleed myself. well i bleed myself

 

 

Seven

 

Sew it on.
Face the fool.
December’s tragic drive
When time is poetry
And stolen the world outside
The waiting could crush my heart

You’ll taste it
In time

The right words
In time

Sew it on.
Face the fool.
The mirrors lie those aren’t my eyes
Destroy them raise my hand
Reflected in savage shards
A new face a soul reborn.

You’ll taste it
In time

The right words
In time

 

Every Shining Time You Arrive

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Oh and all those things you realized
Were nothing more than a memory displaced through
So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders straining with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind
I want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on
Oh and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour
Want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom
I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy
I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive

Guitar and Video Games

How is it you feel?
I remember you at the top of my room
All these things we wondered how to hide
See how it works when
All the day long in a bottle of mud
All these fears we wondered how to hide with our love

How is it you feel when you run?
Ships won’t come in in a bottle of mud
All this time looking for love and
You want to find peace
But you find me

Mondrary fields where we run
See how it works with a bottle of rum
All this time hiding from death
And we want to be strong
But we find the true story
A tale
Writing itself as we sail
A story
A tale
Writing itself as we wail
Oh no

Never again my dear
Should we come dancing here
We’ll play guitar and video games

What if we refuse to follow the rules of fashion?
Tell me something you’d tell a fool
Ways to refuse to follow the rules of fashion

How is it you feel then?
Remember you in the top of my room
All these things remade me and caused
To be something grand

Never again shall we
Come dancing in the sea
We’ll play guitar for a new
We’ll play guitar and video games

‘Every Shining Time You Arrive’

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Well and all those things you realized
We’re nothing more than a memory displaced through

So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders strain with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind

Want to change everything

Want to blame everything on

Well and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour

Want to change everything
Want to change everything
Want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom, I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy, I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive, you arrive, you arrive

Sunny Day Real Estate ‘Pillars’-

But you always want to stay the same girl
I know you want to be the rain
And you know that we could fall in there
For a time and then unfall again
For a while I take you burying old bones
Dawn’s gray the signs in the winter light
And I know that you can feel the pain
Your eyes speak one hundred million knives

Don’t tell me you’ve gone astray
I walk in circles
I’ve seen a million things that tell me so

But I was always one to play the fool girl
Though the rules were somewhat dark to me
And I know that we could fall in there
For a time and then unfall again
For a while I give you darium bound stones
Growing through the roots of your mind set apart
And I know that you can feel the pain
Your eyes speak one hundred million lies

Don’t tell me you’ve gone astray
I walk in circles
I’ve seen a million things that tell me so

Total anxiety paid for variety
We’ll wait for time to turn around, turn around your faith
Wait for time to turn

The world we sold, there was a choir there

Don’t tell me you’ve gone astray
I talk in circles
Everlasting chains that bind my purpose
Only I’ve seen a million things that tell me so

Total anxiety pay for variety
Wait for time to turn around your faith
Choked on society laced with cyanide
Wait for time to turn around your faith
Wait for time to turn
