"Secrets"

I’ve got a secret in my bones, 
far beyond belief
I won’t tell you anything,
just wait around to see

I’ve got a secret in my bones,
far beyond belief
I won’t tell you anything
nothing’s in the world for free

Decided if I’m going crazy I might as well smile
Nothing’s in this world for free
Washed up, beat down, lord I’m barely there
Wipe your face of that sinister stare

Crazy eyed, black snide,
Incredulously foul
Wiping my face off with acid machines
Decided if I’m going crazy I might as well smile
Nothing’s in this world for free
No it don’t change me

I’ve got a secret
wouldn’t you like to know?
I’ve got a secret in my bones
I’ve got a secret
wouldn’t you like to know
I’ve got a secret in my bones

I’ve got a secret in my bones,
we’ve all got secrets in our bones

 

"Wind & Wave ft. Kam Franklin"

Your eyes,
sail across miles of the dark sea
and land on the shore of my anatomy
grey the clouds, thunder rolls
across the southern sky
all in a second’s time


In my life,
I stand on the edge of my doubts
heavy they lie upon my soul
you I will not count out
you break up the pattern of dark clouds
A Wave you are the Wind
I am the shore, let’s go


Have I got something for you
You’re going no where
And what if I told you?
This is sink or swim

Tonight, I’m back in my own head
And it feels so right
Put your loving arms
around me baby
Do you feel alright?

Do you feel alright?
Do you feel alright?
where you warm inside?
Are you all alone?


Have I got something for you
You’re going no where
And what if I told you?
This is sink or swim

 

"Love Out Loud"

You haven’t grown so far
from that familiar place
it’s buried deep in your heart
and floats through outer space
Maybe it’s time, for a change.

Hold on to what you love
 it could all be gone tomorrow
Darlin don’t let me down
this world will bend and break you blow by blow
On and on
passing through life on stand by
On and on, relax sit back and just float by

You haven’t seen the sun
since your descent
you’re letting time go by
and burying your life in sin
Maybe it’s time, for a change
It might be too late
too engage, in rebirth

Hold on to what you love
 it could all be gone tomorrow
Darlin don’t let me down
this world will bend and break you blow by blow
On and on
passing through life on stand by
On and on, relax sit back and just float by

"Soul"

Soul, is all,
we have, my dear
If we stripped, ourselves
of all the most important things

 

Underneath it all, you and me
honey you’re so sweet
please let me
tell you, just how much
Soul, is all we have

 

Sun shines,
through the window in the morning
it hits your face
baby I’m alive
and we stripped, ourselves
of all the most important things

 

Underneath it all, you and me
honey you’re so sweet
please let me
tell you, just how much
Soul, is all we have

 

Soul, is all we have
 

Underneath it all, you and me
honey you’re so sweet
please let me
tell you, just how much
oh please let me
tell you, just how much

Soul, is all we have
 

"Battlement"

Here on this day
We stand upon this misty battlement
here we meet our foes
Black is their souls
And dark is their will
For all man

 

To many men this land was but a nightmare unborn
Never fathomed to be scorn about their faces
In the dark of night
Inside a lightless day

 

Approached is the moment of telling
Blade will meet and dark will try to smite
Here we’ll stand, amongst the darkest of hate
Here we'll stand to rid this world of the dark
 

Black is their souls
and dark is their will for all man
here we meet those
who treat fear as a friend
To meet this the enemy who threatens to take the light away
Here we stand on this dark day
Here we stand inside this lightless day

 

Approached is the moment of telling
Blade will meet and dark will try to smite
Here we’ll stand, amongst the darkest of hate
Here we'll stand to rid this world of the dark

 

Black is their souls
and dark is their will for all man
here we meet those
who treat fear as a friend
To meet this the enemy
Who threatens to take the light away
Here we stand on this dark day
Here we stand inside this lightless day

 

Approached is the moment of telling
Blade will meet and dark will try to smite
Here we’ll stand, amongst the darkest of hate
Here we'll stand to rid this world

"Rain"

Rain, Falls, Down
Like Constellations they dirty up the ground
washing the white cement
Take shelter, from the fall
the sky subsides in respect
for my measure of intent
this rain wasn’t meant for me
 

Go away dark clouds
I’m not who you’re looking for
Go away right now
You’re welcome here no more
Tell myself who I want to be
Ask and you shall receive
Go away right now,
I’m not who you’re looking for

 

Quietly the rain, was passing
I blinked and the sun returned
sinking in my shoes
noticing, I felt through all the rain
A moment, carrying its past

 

Go away dark clouds
I’m not who you’re looking for
Go away right now
You’re welcome here no more
Tell myself who I want to be
Ask and you shall receive
Go away right now,
I’m not who you’re looking for

"Timing's Everything"

Timing's Everything when you get it right
It's like feeding a fiend, you try and try till you die
I'm worse for memory, what's your name again?
I've been trying to remember but my brains only sending
Tiny Defenders
To heed off your advances

Maybe my heart, knows something I don't
The next move I make could leave me on my own
Or maybe seep into songs
It's undecided
you, are uninvited

All Alone

Don't wanna be all alone
Missing you sitting on my own
Never know again, your soft hands touch my skin
Don't wanna miss, my, best friend

 

Don't wanna be all alone
Withering in my decrepit old home
As old age takes the better half of me away
What will I know as dear
If I, don't have you here

 

What will it mean in my heart?
Is this the beginning of the dark
If everyone I love is silently
If everyone I love is silently
silently, moving away

 

Don’t wanna be all alone
missing you sitting, on my own
as old age takes, the better half of me away
what will I know as dear?
If I, don’t have you here?
