If Time Allows Why take the time to listen I’m right and always will be The present day prescription Far as the eye can see It's not me The clock will never quicken Forgetting consequences After all we’re only pushing paper Seems sensible to me A life without a meaning, running Lost inside that feeling in the dark No thought before reaction, just Eluding satisfaction from the start I went up to Athens Got me a degree Headed out to join the masses Made a working man of me Start to end full speed ahead Day after day Never did I stop to think I could live some other way Can’t Comprehend This master plan Days turn into weeks then months As months turn into years Hours at your desk each day Building your career Then one day you find yourself Staring at the ground Swearing that you’ll live your life If time allows The time is now If time Allows
Hopsecutioner See how the sun shines dancing in her eyes Hear how the wind blows, how it howls and it cries Our nights they are gold; with her I must grow old But when she comes home late, there’s more than I’ve been told Well I can always tell when she’s been lying to me There must be another man, I opened my eyes its plain to see I took her in my arms, brushed my fingers through her hair Only one time girl if you break my then I swear We will have reached the end Filling up ashtrays, my doubts have not been cleared Listening to airwaves, for signals far and near And then one night I awoke, warm but alone Watched her sneak off from the widow's walk and waited for her to get home I sat for hours blood boiling ‘neath the moon I saw her headlights and smelt her perfume Her lips were red her skin aglow Dancing in sin with the moon on her back Where’s her shame? That's when she noticed me Caught in the act I gave her one chance to explain I can still hear her words bouncing round my brain She said... I am desperate I am cold I am aging Not quite old You break my feet To keep me at home It’s all out of fear Of being alone Those were the last words that girl she ever did say What I did that night I still regret to this day
Golden Lotus 08:40
Golden Lotus Close your eyes Imagine moonlit skies The world is slumbering Paradise Let it fill up your mind Your worries crumbling Feel the wind A long forgotten friend Your only company Flowing streams A product of your dreams Floating so comfortably Careful don’t you make a sound What’s that noise from under ground Feel the earth begin to quake Signal that it’s time to wake up Why. Must. The wool be pulled from my eyes Can’t. Find. Who drew lines in the sky Bring. Me. Back to that mystic place Where troubles mean Nothing And worries they whither and Waste away Far Away One last time Dive deep into sublime We’re here and here to stay Birds eye view Is lost to all but few Who dare to look away Clouded minds Tricked into joyous time Cling to their cigarettes Fleeting dreams A perfect world it seems Can’t dread what we forget Solipsistic and deranged Wasted time with nothing gained Look around for heaven’s sake In the end we all must wake up Please. Bring. Me. Back to that mystic place Where troubles mean Nothing And worries they whither And waste way Far away
Partials 01:10
Atoms & Void 07:24
Marcus Mayhem Cataracts on capricorns Seahorses in the slime Washed up in the willow muck Well before our time Sirens and tyrants All doing as they please Coalescing and caressing In unadulterated sleaze Hail Marcus! All the creatures cry A single sung salute Chairman of the chiefdom In his purple pinstriped suit There’s jesters leading the brigade And Mayhem is at the helm Crusading and parading Through a long forgotten realm Jungle cats and gemini Preparing for the prowl Tilden Katz is on his yacht Pulled by forty foul Feeding on fluorescent fruit A vision flashed behind his eyes A glimmer of the gleaming goblet And the sea began to rise Quickly chaos came to Katz Muddling his mind He changed his name to tame his fame And left Mayhem behind Now he’s Otis Blake make no mistake He’s delightful and divine He forged the chalice of which he dreamt Flawless in design Hang up your mind on a blueberry vine There’s a bus that will take you away Marcus is here you’ve got nothing to fear Let’s parade and then roll in the hay Deep inside the confines of your mind There’s a light that can always be found Just like the oak lost in the storm We all must return to the ground Gobble the food and drink all the wine Happily stumble back home Be grateful for all the deeds you don’t see Behind the emperor's throne
Just Peachy 05:12
Just Peachy Each day we wake, to greet the sun Memories we make, details unsung Each night we fall, longing for more Now is all there is and now is yours Embrace your life and feel the love Radiate from everyone When you’re tired, and face the choice Listen to your inner voice Open up your heart now honey, it's time to share The sun still shines above the clouds up there This could be your brand new day Release your cares feel just peachy How could I have missed it Mistook for mystic I know we will not fail I know love will prevail I feel fine
Threshold 04:23
Threshold When times get tough control your breath Adhere to this and leave the rest Let go of all your selfish ways The only constant known is change I fear I felt this way last week Yet each day is unique A new sun will rise to shine As sure as the thundering tempest of time Some want all they can get Others learn to be content In the end it’s all the same We all will find our own way Believe I’ve bent this way before Stepping right through the door Only To find that everything’s different Since I last walked outside When it comes to life my friends You get out what you put in
