Magic Man

Dear Mr. Magic Man, 

Can you put that magic in my hands

Show me the finest tricks and send me off to wonderland.

Use all your magic powers to make this pain go away

I’m down to my bottom dollar, would you make it last all day

I ask so politely, I ask so politely indeed

I’m begging your mercy Mr. Magic Man

Dear Mr. Magic Man, 

You take all my money

I’m down to my last cent, but do you have something for me

I’ve got this shiny watch that I thought you might like to have

It has some value to it but the time runs a little fast, so fast

I ask so politely, I ask so politely indeed 

I’m begging your mercy Mr. Magic Man

Dear Mr. Magic Man, 

You’ll have to excuse me now

I know it’s not your fault, but it seems my funds have run out

I’m feeling paralyzed, yes inside I feel dead

So allow me to apologize for putting this gun up to your head

I ask so politely, I ask so politely indeed 

I’m begging your mercy Mr. Magic Man


Promise Land

The path of the righteous man is straight and narrow

I don’t know if that’s the road a straying man can follow

Stone me like a sinner and cast me aside

I’m tired of living in this world of hate, tired of living in this world of lies

Won’t you show me to the promise land

If I were blind would you take me by the hand

Show me to the promise land 

If I couldn’t walk would you help me stand

This illusion of a life as easy as it seems

Someone’s making nightmares from out of all my dreams

Here I am at the crossroads begging on my knees

Arms raised up to the sky lord have mercy on me

Show me to the promise land

If I were blind would you take me by the hand

Show me to the promise land

If I couldn’t walk would you help me stand


Faded

Our love is changing, we’re in need of saving

Remind me of the good times, those memories escaped my mind

Or are they to far gone by now

Life moves through stages, while the wind blows through the pages

Love‘s few and far between, we got lost trying to chase a dream

A story of love lost and it can’t be found

I’m sure that I’ll regret never changing

I’m reminded of our love now that it’s fading

Our love is fading, slowly cascading

Down the hills through the valley whispers your life without me

Who would have thought that this would be our tale 

I’m sure that I’ll regret never changing 

I’m reminded of our love now that it’s fading

I’m sure that I’ll regret never changing

I’m reminded of our love now that it’s faded 

You can move mountains or you can part the ocean

At least that’s what they say

What about saving love that’s in decay

One just can’t un-break your heart


Mirror On The Wall

You got to take this chance, get it right

Learn from the wrongs you make along the way

You got to carry on, rise above

How do you know you’re alive without the pain

Truth be told as the story goes 

How do you know it’s love without the hate

Carry on, rise above

The tangled webs you weave will drive you insane

Mirror, mirror on the wall, I can’t see the truth in it all anymore 

Learn from the sins of your father’s yesterday

Every reflection fades away

The sky can fall, the sea can rise

I guess you better learn how to ride the wave

With your eyes open wide and your ear to the ground

I hope you can see the storm that’s headed your way

The truth be told about the lies your sold

The blind will lead the blind straight to their grave

Carry on, rise above

Burning down the world with nothing to gain 

Mirror, mirror on the wall, I can’t see the truth in it all anymore

Learn from the sins of your father’s yesterday 

Every reflection fades away


World Gone Mad

Look at the sky, I’m taken away, I’ve never seen it look like this before

Gather the masses, gather your people, march them through the iron doors

Locked in the chambers, locked in the shackles, shadows dancing on the wall

You seek my mercy, you seek my mercy, yes I’ve spared you once before

I’m not the one, I’m not the only one to blame

I’m not the one, I’m not the only one insane

Call to your son, your name

Hello there stranger, hello there stranger, haven’t you seen a friend before

Fighting this battle, fighting this battle, what are we really fighting for

We’re feeding the greedy, fueling their evil, while we send away the poor

Hello there stranger, hello there stranger, haven’t you seen this once before

I’m not the one, I’m not the only one to blame

I’m not the one, I’m not the only on insane

Call to your son, your name

The time that’s passed is gone and you’re never going to get it back

Keep your eyes forward, keep moving ahead, time moves way too fast

Time will keep you waiting patiently 

As the world keeps changing so does the soul inside of me 

In a world gone mad, in a world gone mad, in a world gone mad

Has the world gone mad


A Thousand Years Away

Don’t take for granted all that you have

You’re living today as if there’s no tomorrow

If that’s what you want that’s what you’ll have

Children will be born into a land of sorrow

This endangered species kind of life isn’t any kind of life at all

The world she bled for forty days and nights 

And she’ll bleed for forty more

The sheep are blind, the shepherd’s gone astray 

They stand in lines letting the wolves lead the way

Deceptive minds, they’re the masters of disguise

They can paint the prettiest pictures right in front of your eyes

This endangered species kind of life isn’t any kind of life at all

The world she bled for forty days and nights

And she’ll bleed for forty more

All I ask of you is to try to save a life a thousand years away

It’s not as hard as it seems, it starts with a change inside yourself

All I ask of you is to try to save a life a thousand years away 

This endangered species kind of life isn’t any kind of life at all

The world she bled for forty days and nights and she’ll bleed for forty more


Sleepless Nights

I don’t want to stick the roads I’ve traveled, I’ve already lived this before

Searching for another direction, some place new

Sleepless nights they remind me, is this God trying to wake me

Sleepless nights they remind me, is this God trying to save me

Way beyond what I can dream, far beyond what the eyes can see awaits our destiny

What does the time behold 

There’s no time for hesitation if we wish to reach our destination

Our dreams we can embrace them as long as you’re willing to create them

I will ride the wave, I’m living for today, I’m not waiting around for tomorrow

Hello there, how’ve you been

These are new dimensions we are all entering in 

So I keep a turf toe and an iron chin because the holocaust is still aproachin

But who will survive and what will be left of them 

The war of the endangered species and its corrupt government it’s about to begin

Plus to add a sick twist, most of the people in the country didn’t even vote for the president

The revolution should be televised so we can all represent 

Or better yet, start placing bets

On approaching new world orders and more underground terrorists threats

I drop biblical hymns, prophecies

The endangered species causing the drop of corporate monopolies 

Underground for the democracy, Notabol drop lobotomies 

Sleepless nights they remind me is this God trying to wake me

Sleepless nights they remind me is this God trying to save me

At night I can’t sleep I toss and turn


Dead Silence

Dead silence waking me from my sleep

This life you can have but my soul I’ll keep

I’ve searched this world for inner peace

Found all my friends to be enemies 

How could I be so blind 

How could I be so blinded

I see my life as it passes me by

The world keeps spinning and I race time

I’ve searched this world for peace of mind

I search for a life that I can’t find

I’m just trying to get by, I’m just trying to get by

How could I, how could I be so blind

How could I, how could I be so blinded

Dead silence waking me from my sleep

This life you can have but my soul I’ll keep

I’ve searched this world for inner peace

Found all my friends to be enemies 

How could I, how could I be so blind

How could I, how could I be so blinded


Heart Breaker

What have I created

I’m some kind of monster 

And I can’t, no I cant even look you in the eyes

No sweet conversation, not a twinkle in your eyes

No sweet conversation, is going to save you tonight

You’re a heartbreak baby

Don’t you know I’ve got to put you down

You’re a heartbreaker baby

Don’t you hear that breaking sound

I’ve become so jaded

So broke down and weary inside

And I can’t, no I can’t even look you in the eyes

No sweet conversation

No sweet conversations going to bring you back tonight

You’re a heart breaker baby

Don’t you know I’ve got to put you down

A heart breaker baby

Don’t you hear that breaking sound


Widow’s Son

Watch your mouth watch what you say, your tongue at times is like a blade

The pictures you painted everyday become the image you portray

Is it for better or is it for worse

Is it a blessing or is it a curse 

By the light of the crescent moon, oh it seems I’ve spoke to soon

Thought they wanted what I am, oh they wanted it all so bad

Strike me once, twice more and I’ll be done

Is there any hope for the widow’s son

Finish the chapter you have to turn the page

Don’t let it get to you, don’t be consumed by your rage

The world’s not what it seems, it’s all in how its perceived

So many twisted thoughts in the way they want you to believe

Is it for better or is it for worse

Is it a blessing or is it a curse 

By the light of the crescent moon, oh it seems I’ve spoke to soon

Thought they wanted what I am, oh they wanted it all so bad

Strike me once, twice more and I’ll be done

Is there any hope for the widow’s son
