Track Name: Heavy Motion
Standing still
A wave over my eyes.
Salty sting, Salty taste
Trying to hide my desires.
My defeat, my defection
Betray my desires.
Heaving heart
Pumping blood
To my rise.

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Takes me in
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates

Staring up
The sky seems so unclear.
What's the limit, what's the damage
That I pay?
Yesterday, last week
I don't remember.
Who is she?
Pumping blood
To my rise.

Heavy Motion...Medicates

scream for truth which I possess.
Held so tightly between my ribs.
You crack them open, peer inside.
And see...
....Yourself.

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Takes me in
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me sane
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me saved
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me sane
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Makes me rise
Heavy Motion
Emotion
No more lies

Track Name: Merry go Round
Rabid thoughts going through my head
Sickening smile across my face.
I don't want to be here, but I'm here
I fear.
I like the smell, I like the sense,
I like the touch, but not the stentch
of my weakness to be true
to you.

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round

Voices saying there's nothing wrong,
a little touch of fantasy
A little touch of reality
brings me home.
The blow that hits me hard
is what I want to feel.
Indugle me please, Indulge me
till I feel.

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round.
Track Name: Pretty
If you're feeling ugly
down and blue.
Take a walk downtown
to a place, that might be good for you.
You can be free,
to be as you please.
No need to worry,
just feel your release.

Take a stroll to the other side.
You can full fill your lace desires
They supply everything you need
to feel free, from hate,
To see yourself feeling pretty.

There are those who believe
life is a drag.
I say, "Good for them"
though it's not my bag.
Live and let live
there's no harm done.
For those who enjoy
some dressing up fun.

Take a stroll ... feeling pretty.

A little dab of cheer
and a corsette on your waist.
Excitement builds
with a little bit of lace.
Apply the make-up
yes you can be real.
A new beginning
in gold stiletto heels.

You can dream that one day
you'll walk in Paris. (French Accent)
Life will be grand
sipping sherry.
But you'll have to make do
lip-syncing on Church
In your own male world
reality can hurt.

Take a stroll ... feeling pretty.
Track Name: Gender Bender
Mirror Mirror on the wall.
Who's the fairest of them all.
Track Name: A Family Affair
Sitting there in the darkness
No one hears your cries.
Abandoned yet sheltered
Protecting you from the outside.

"It's for your own good" they say
"We want to break you".

Protect you from the real world.
Protect you from the outside.
Protect you from the real world.
Protect you from yourself.

The world turns forward
Your knowledge locked in the past.
The chains become your own reason
You don't see that your truth has come from their lies.

"It's for your own good" they say
"We want to break you".

Protect you from the real world... Protect you from yourself

In the outside world
Your keepers with their smile
make believe that everything's
just fine.
But back inside
your sheltered cries
bring sorrow
for no one.

Protect you from the real world
Protect you from the outside
Protect you from the real world
Protect you from the outside
Protect you from yourself
Track Name: The Empty Sky (pt1 The View)
Standing high above the world
I can see the panic below me.
Sparkling rays of morning sunlight
turn to rays of fire light.
The life which sprawls out before me
is gathering a will.
But that doesn't matter anymore
my choice before me
Holds me still.

And so I've got the wind before me
and the heat at my back
now tearing at my flesh,
advancing each baby step.
My quickest way to heaven
God, my only choice?
Falling back into the fire
or falling forward
to say
Goodbye.
Track Name: The Empty Sky (pt2 Goodbye)
Now's the time to say goodbye
It's O.K
Falling from this world on fire
It's O.K.
Track Name: The Empty Sky (pt3 Fallen)
I close my eyes, breathing deep
I sigh.
I resign myself to fate
there's no other way out
to ease the pain.
Falling forward to the wind....

My mind is pure
My pain is gone
Is it all a dream?
In an Empty Sky.

The Empty Sky
