Hallowed Ground

Here Tonight

 

time won't wait wait on you now

when you're alone all you do is frown

the way you look feeling like a clown

with your head stuck there in the clouds

learn to climb high from the ground

 

listen to my mind I knew it all the time 

never wasting mine yea I'm alive

 

found without your own you're going down

cause living doubt doesn't make a sound

holding off til' everything'll bounce

maybe stuck but never losing ground?

without your own you're gonna drown

 

listen to my mind I knew it all the time 

never wasting mine yea I'm alive

looking through my eyes

tells me that it's right 

and in this world it lies now waiting

here tonight

 

how can I live live without you now

without you on I'm going down

all is sane when you're around

you see me up ain't ever coming down

 

Freedom

 

ain't no wasted time

know only living days

something I can't find

has been keeping things this way

through all them lonely days

lord and all those lonely nights

chasing down that kind

that's been ruling from inside yea

 

hear them mounting winds

come that freezing rain

calling you to worship

on those building seas of pain

I'm living for this day lord

got every reason why that's pulling me

to cross that shit and move it on down the line

 

been free to do what I want all along

been free to be what you are all along

 

well they'll swear it ain't no line

as it drags you down again

you can turn wine and walk on water

in this divine little world you're in here

I'm living for this day lord

got every reason why

that's pointing me to cross that shit

and I'll do it every time yea

 

Summer

 

she comes on like an all day child

when all those colors go exploding around

oh how I love that glowing hair

underneath magnolias and midnight air

and those summer days yea they're back again

drifted down on a sunday wind

lifting all of the spirits now

how good it feels to hear that sound

 

and those summer days are here again

just like a weight has gone and ended

those summer days are so free

when all that cold has gone away and ended 

 

she takes all of this lonely mess

when a feeling that could never ever miss

comes a shimmering down right through the trees

and keeps it warm here as it covers me

 

In The Dark

 

sittin' here in the dark

in the dark on the ground tonight

the stars are falling all around

the stars are falling all around tonight

 

in a blink they've fallen down to the ground

I've never seen anything as beautiful as night

 

must be something else around

moving out there beyond the clouds

when that dust reaches the sky

it lights up just like the 4th of july

 

in a blink they've fallen down to the ground

have you ever seen anything as beautiful as night

 

sittin' here in the dark

in the dark with the skies alight

when that dust reaches the sky

it lights us just like the 4th of july

 

the heavens must have sent you right on down

 

A Breath Away

 

this river goes

and it's never running dry

beneath the ground

time is nullified here

the springs they grow

ever flowing night and day

pushing the waters up through

the dirt and the clay

 

silence here

fading all of the deepest fears

whispering echoes

louder than anything that I can hear

like awaiting bliss from

the sweetest lips I've ever know

realizing all that time

I've always been home

 

 it's always just a breath away

 

A Mountain     

 

set out to climb a mountain

as far as I could see

I was the only one 

who could do anything for me

with you on my mind

with you on my mind

 

jumped into a river 

and rode it to the sea

swam to the notion 

of just you and me

with you on my mind

baby you're on my mind

 

all about love

 

still I wait for the moment

that's coming down that line

just like that broken bottle 

that cuts you every time

when you own my mind

baby you own my mind

 

Disillusionment

 

I believe in you and everything you do

every time I dream you’re the one I see

at night when I sleep

 

you’re the one I want when ever I wake up

you are in my soul I want you to know

that I would never go

 

you are all I need when ever I am weak

you are all my words when ever that I try

I won’t ever fall 

 

you are all I know without you I am done

but you won’t believe a word that I say

I'd never say goodbye

 

you are all I know

you are all I know

I'd never say goodbye

I'd never say goodbye

I'd never say goodbye

I'd never say goodbye

 

All I Want

 

It's in your walk when you move around 

the way your feet yea they touch the ground

it's all that I can see of you  

is to do all them things that only you can do

it goes on 

and on

 

It's in your look and in your air

In all my hopes yea in all my prayers

those images you are conjuring up

when you come around and you turn it on

and it goes on and on

 

on and on and on and

on and on

on and on and on and

 

all I want is everything you got to give  

 

can feel your looks 

and feel your eyes

it hits me hard 

and comes as no surprise

that it goes on and on

 

Gotta Have It

 

running out of luck

hoping I don't fall down no more

standing walking tall

but I ain't goin' down like before

 

gimme just one more I need a little more

gimme just one more I need a little more

yea yea

 

a burnin' when she shakes

that ass right on cue but I don't break

down on the floor 

a drowning in my sorrows 

wanting more and more and more 

and more and more and more

 

gimme just one more I need a little more

gimme just one more I need a little more

yea yea

 

oh where are you now if you want it to be here 

I'm gonna bring it

tell me what you want

and yell it out loud just like before and more

and more and more and more

 

The Devil

 

I've crossed the lands and hauled the seeds 

for thousands of years my roots are steeped

you know me well I'm in your mirror

making your enemies and all of your fears

 

cause I'm the devil 

cause I'm the devil 

 

no fire that comes from my hand

no 666 ever crosses my head

I fear your faith when your souls are right

I orchestrate your demise

 

cause I'm the devil 

cause I'm the devil 

 

a world of horrors under my skin 

for all the gods that answer to me

have all your souls cause I'm in your heads   

even your kings fear who I am

 

Through The Trees

 

she got me

she got me

she got me

 

now I'm on my own

 

she lead me 

through the trees

and off my knees

 

Washing Us Away

 

all I know is that the wind and sun

follows wherever you go

and every night the skies alive

with a billion lights

and every morning most of us

rising just the same

we end the day and do it all again

 

spend our time a wondering about

what's in some other life

when day after day keeps us

sliding away and out of sight 

in this place so beautiful and full of life

and where it comes from ain't no words can say

 

and so the wind a keep a blowin' on

and so the days a keep a rollin' on

and slow the tides gonna keep on washing us away

 

Dragonfly

 

another day some other way

any old thing just to make it seem alright 

cause it don't mean a thing

 

its just one more day you have to live

and one more day you have to get

 

still alive dragonfly keep on flappin

your wings right up into the sky

until you're flying

cause there's no one left but you

 

its just one more day you have to live

and one more day you have to get

and one more chance you have to live

and one more chance you have 

have to get
