BUTTERFLY

music: G. Barbi, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday
 
 

Psychic reading tells me I'm a freak
Listen as the tarot cards will speak to you

He's alive he's never gonna die
How do I know, they told me so
I'll be back in a different life,
Like a Butterfly.

I'm erased as they celebrate my reception
I must face the consequences of deception

I can read your palm and know your past
This is not a joke try not to laugh at me

He's alive he's never gonna die
how does he know, we told him so
He'll be back in another life,
Like a Butterfly.

I'm alive, I'm never gonna die
How do I know they told me so
I'll be back in a different life,
Like a Butterfly.

I'm erased as they celebrate my reception
I must face the consequences of deception

CONCENTRATION

music: T. Darling, G. Barbi, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

I use my concentration
You say manipulation
Either way I want you to take control

See this nice institution
Swallowing revolution
It's their fantasy to take control

Do I make you afraid?
Is it hard for you to concentrate?

Notice how the wrong choices
Strangle all of the voices
Who can scream without a
Breath of air?

Choosing to fill all the tables
Balance them if your able
You'r sides wrong untill
You see mine's right

Do I make you afraid?
Is it hard for you to concentrate?
Dragging down the human race
Makes it hard for you to concentrate

When you realize I'm in control
Then you realize it's you I own
Now you've accepted your role

GRASS ROOTS

music: B. Soliday, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

I'm living a lie
I'm living but I dont know why
She stays with me,
I'm living a dream
So tired it makes me want to sleep
and not awake

When the city moves to fast
I want to slow everything down
That's the time to get on back

Grass roots sticking to my boots
Tangled in my tracks
I'm back to living in the past

I'm lying again
I told my Mamma I wasn't homesick
She knows damn well that I am
Can't make any freinds
Every single single person I meet seems so
Concerned with their own things

When the city moves to fast
I want to slow everything down
That's the time to get on back

Grass roots sticking to my boots
Tangled in my tracks
I'm back to living in the past

Been drinking again
Been thing about my old man
And all the shit thats he's seen
Gone smoking again
I try and I try but I cant think of when
She last kissed me goodbye

MIND AND BODY

music and lyrics: R. Varvil

You want me to know you
I want to smash your face
You try to snow me
I'll put you in your place

I've got a passion for extreme intentions
I've got a passion for your skin
Too much to mention

I'm not your man, I'm a rubber band

You think you know me
I'll drag your ass through dirt
You try to hold me
I always bring the hurt

No more anger tarnishing my sole

With your mind and your body
You control my feelings
With your mind and your body
You can see what makes me tick
With your mind and your body
You control my aggression
With your mind and your body
You can be whats makes me sweat

You need to touch me
I need to brake you down
You said you loved me
Six feet under the ground

PASSING BY

music and lyrics: B. Soliday

You push me away
I don't dare say that I need you
Why should I be blamed
When your shadows
Will not let my love shine
Deep inside of you?

The sun left today
The pain hurts so much when you're
crying
How long can it stay?
That smile you hide within you
Waits forever without a friend

If the mountains fall, and the rivers halt
Would we ever wonder why?
Push aside the guilt, learn to face that hill
Known to both of us as pride
Can't we at least try, maybe we're just
Two strangers passing by

You know how it feels
It's in my voice oh so clear
I'm hoping you here each word I sing and
It touches you in a place
That you never knew

I can't be wrong, you say I can do no right
Why are we so consumed with
Wasting all our time?

If the mountains fall, and the rivers halt
Would we ever wonder why?
Push aside the guilt, learn to face that hill
Known to both of us as pride
If the mountains fall, and the rivers halt
Would we even wonder why?
If the sun won't rise
And the stars wo'nt shine
Could we learn to face our pride?
Can't we at least try, maybe we're just
Two strangers passing by

STICK FIGURE

music: T. Darling, B. Soliday, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

Fear me
Don't ignore me
I'm not some figurine of idolatry
Believe in what you can'y see
It will not let you go
It will not fade away

They don't get it
When I spell it out for them
They still didn't get it

Sorry
For the intrusion
Too late to turn around
Too late to shut my mouth
Is it imagination? Or only in my head?
It's not hard to figure out

They don't get it
When I spell it out for them
They still didn't get it

Now I don't get it
How can they be so amused?
I don't know

When eveything I say
Goes in one ear and out the other

They don't get it, They don't get it
They don't get it, and they never will

They say they can't afford it
How can you feel loved
While so filled with hate

Evasive, altruistic
They just want to be alone
So stay out of my way

PICTURES

music: T. Darling, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

A broken bottle shattering on the floor
A broken silhouette that's closing the door

A tortured imbecilic soul we agree
I count the days you smiled looking at me
Fearing the worst
Our fate was slipping away
Sometimes we tried so hard
But we never changed

I need space, the pain's to much
Time to put away the pictures
Collecting dust
I need time, somebody help me find
A way to escape the pictures in my mind

Too many reasons I cannot simplify
Most questions with no answers
Ended up lies
No reconciliation fit in the plans
You wanted things I could'nt put
In your hands

I need space, the pains to much
Time to put away the pictures
Collecting dust
I need time, somebody help me find
A way to escape the pictures in my mind

As you crawl. you feel small

You need me inside of you
I cringe when I think of you

FLOATING

music: T. Darling
lyrics: B. Soliday

Lay your head on a suspended bed
Does if feel like your floating?
In your head?
Try to relax as I pull you under
Do I make you nervous instead?

Trying to imagine
Things you could not fathom if you could
Blinking your eyes are sinking
Now you cannot see them

Does it feel like floating?
Feels surreal like floating

Soothing, the tranquilizing state
That keeps you guessing
Falling down faster from your mind
You know there is no out

Does it feel like floating?
Feels surreal like floating

Muscles twitch my head spins
Lips are swelling up

Face is made of clay that breaks
Into a pool

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

music: T. Darling, B. Soliday, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

Lord save my sole
Take my life
Lead me high upon your throne
Throw aside
My own crimes
Against my family

Sometimes I feel so angry
I want to kill somebody
It's just a perfect ending
To my pathetic story

Ten days away from family
My wife and kids go hungry
I'm so obsessed with freedom
It's running over me

Misery's my own
Home away from home
Left to be alone
Home away from home
Seems like everthing is gone

FAIRYTALES

music: T. Darling, R. Varvil, B. Soliday
lyrics: B. Soliday

Lives, dies, can't decide?
Which way to escape

I don't care what people say
If the world is round, let it stay that way
Push me to the edge,
These fairytales in my head

Deep sea drowning me
Can't breathe your disease

I don't care what people say
If the world is round, let it stay that way
Push me to the my head
Made up fairytales

SPILLED MILK

music: R. Varvil, T. Darling
lyrics: B. Soliday

Think of me, a desolate child
Walking through life all alone

Beneath the scowl on my face
Lingers deep a bitter taste

I can't see what you want me to
I can't feel whats inside of you
I can't see it as it runs away

Same old prayer, same God above
The only father I have loved

Seeking out memories of the past
Knowing then my childhood wouldn't last

I can't see what you want me to
I can't see what's inside of you
I can' see it as it runs away

You made me, now I'm your guilt
The spawn of a coward is like spilled milk

Not everything can stay the way it was
I wish it could

DERANGED

music: T. Darling, R. Varvil, B. Soliday
lyrics: B. Soliday

She wears a ribbon in her hair
She wears a gold ring in her nose
Her disarrangment has a unique flair
It follows her everwhere she goes

She lifts me up so high
I thought that I could touch the clouds
I'm on a trip to nowhere
Only to come down

So am I weird?
Am I deranged?
I feel so sick I'm spinning circles
In my head again

She fills the cup that runneth over
I drink the juice from her vines
Little by little they will weep for me
Only to taste her one more time

PAINTED FACES

music: G. Barbi, T. Darling, R. Varvil
lyrics: B. Soliday

Empty crates left in the woodshed
Run to hide there from the quick dead
Painted faces make us feel strong
Hiding, hiding away

What's that you say?
You've got something that I need?
Would you teel me
Is it good enough to make me bleed?
What do you know?
Salvation doesn't come cheap
If it's real then it's nothing
You can sell to me

Let the wing pass over cracked lips
Feel the hot breeze in a minds trip
Calculating, what's the next step?
Decide, decide, decide

What's that you say?
You've got something that I need
Would you tell me
Is it good enough to make me bleed?
what do you know?
Salvation doesn't come cheap
If it's real then it's nothing
You can sell me

This is our fool proof plan
Keeps us safe from that man

Empty crates left in the woodshed
Kicked them over, and beat on my head
Wasn't so safe, some fool proof plan
Pay with your life
