From Not A Dream


All I wanted is peace, purity and piece of mind.
And fate brought you around.
You made me able to feel and speak again.


I don't know what to say.
It just gets wilder every day.
Without a color scheme or the full design.
All I am asking for is some peace and purity from not a dream.


It seems like only yesterday we were performing live in the park.
When the fatal shot rang out.
Hearing the whispers in the wind,
Not finishing the cycles out.
My life was filled with darkness and sorrow.
All I want is some peace and purity from not a dream.


The memory is just to strong,
Of you falling from the stage,
Your sister's blood curdling scream.
Racing to your collapsing frame.
Exposing the wound on your chest.
As we hurried to your defense,
The mood wasn't shinning bright enough.
I was still shocked with the distant early morning call.
Filling me with darkness and sorrow.
All I am asking for is peace and purity not from a dream.



At your funeral with all the rules;
The priest was no help on the turning away.
On this cold winter's day,,br> As I leave your grave site,
I am filled with darkness and sorrow.
Standing by my car.
Remembering the words that I never had the time to say.
Thank you for giving me peace, purity and peace of mind all these years.

The Bridge Dangling


Your Dreams awaken me so I can see the night.
What will be your plan?
Seeking the greatest truth.
Where are we going tonight.
Bleeding, Out the message.
Dripping over the time spun for the ease of two.

Collecting the maze of you and middle age.
I'm in your heart.
I'm in your soul.
I'm into capturing your mind in whole.
Remembering when it was a fool.
Gathering the equaled moss.

Katem


Every Rose has a pose.
Every dream has a goal.
Every voice begins as a murmur.
Bring me a rose so you can find the thorn.
Every rain drop causes pain.
Every blessing has a disguise.
Have a cigar and let us die.

Prey on the mind.
Keep your answers aloud.
Single thoughts don't agree.
Everyone moves around to stay.
