When darkness roamed forever
And the moon above was grey
This whole world was cold and lonely
That was until the star child came
With a planet for a playground
And for all it did contain
A child like any other brings
But joy and takes away the pain
It was the moon's spite turned to madness
In a fit of jealous rage
Set the shadows fast upon him
And put the wind behind the rain
Friction wrought the lightning
That the moon should have its way
So dashed and torn to pieces
On a desert floor he lay
Like tear drops down from heaven
So many stars fell from the sky
That their souls became the fire
That now burns from way up high
A child like any other brings but joy
And takes away the pain
A life that's just beginning
Is the light that warms each day

Starchild

Chorus:
Beyond the stars
Dimension
Footprint and inception
The veil
The heart
The soul
Beyond all you think you know

Verse 1:
You still festered in your temper
Spoiled in your greed
Became the awful thing that made you steal and lie
You are the thief
They dragged you out in chains and beat you
A garden less one weed
Nailed you upright to their timber
Through their stones and watched you bleed
You cried out loud for God to take you
Begged and prayed for his mercy
Now the man hanging beside you speaks I can help if you believe

Chorus:
Beyond the stars
Dimension
Footprint and inception
The veil
The heart
The soul
Beyond all you think you know

Verse 2:
He wears a crown of pain and insult
Thornstruck upon his brow
And dies for having dared to walk the path of the Messiah
In truth he has been beaten
As if to bleed from every pour
You raise your head
You look upon him
Your pain is gone
You hurt no more
His fractured voice assures with kindness
Until he takes that final breath
You feel your eyes well up with sorrow
At the moment of his death

Chorus:
Beyond the stars
Dimension
Footprint and inception
The veil
The heart
The soul
Beyond all you think you know

Verse 3:
Alone now more than ever
You watch as daylight fades to black
And in the chaos of this darkness
The gardeners seed is taken back
You feel cold spread from within
Choke then suffocate
Hear a voice calling you brother
Feel a hand pull you his way
He has returned for you as promised
His will be done
His name be praised
And the way to paradise
Be known to all upon this day

Chorus:
Beyond the stars
Dimension
Footprint and inception
The veil
The heart
The soul
Beyond all you think you know

Verse 4:
What is this thing
This energy
What light exists cannot be seen
You hear the music and the voice
Lift up your hands and you rejoice
Feel the weight of so much joy
You overflow from heart to soul
And in every prayer that you have prayed
Every song that you could sing
And on your knees resides in thee
It is the beauty of his being

Thornstruck: The Beauty

Verse 1:
I hear you calling from the ocean in your eyes
Beyond the reef you sing me out with your sweet lies
Where
You keep me hanging, hanging on to survive
You hit me baby like a riptide

Chorus:
You pull me under, take my breath away
You give me feelings baby, wave after wave
I'm on your ocean trying to swim to survive
You hit me baby like a riptide

Verse 2:
You keep me addicted with your every wave
To feel you rise and fall, then break apart and spray
You are the ocean, and I cannot see the shore
I'm farther out than I have ever been before
And as I'm drowning in this sea of your embrace
You pull me under, until I'm gone without a trace

Chorus:
You hit me baby like a hurricane
Like bolts of lighting in a driving rain
You hit me baby like a pain deep inside
You hit me baby like a riptide

Verse 3:
I hear you calling from the ocean in your eyes
Beyond the reef you sing me out with your sweet lies
Where
You keep me hanging, hanging on to survive
You hit me baby like a riptide

Outro:
You hit me baby like a riptide

Riptide

Intro:
I'm hearing static on some radio and voices talking about some Coast to Something Noory Show
I'm trying hard to hear this one guy talk
Something about the outside of a box

Chorus:
Static comes and static goes
I'm hearing static on some radio

Verse 1:
First the lights go out and now I'm seeing things
Never knew an owl had such big wings
lost all track of time and memory
don't know where I am or supposed to be
Got this awful pain in my abdomen
My eyes are closed
I can't open them
Can't move my fingers can't feel my toes
Tastes like metal rod shoved up my nose
I can feel cold fingers inside my brain
I think I'm blacking out again

Chorus:
Static comes and static goes
I'm hearing static on some radio

Verse 2:
I know I'm dying
Cant take this pain
Oh hell no, not the God damn probe again
I'm beyond afraid I'm petrified
They got some shit won't let me die
I pray the lord my soul to take
I'm all cut up like a birthday cake
Something smells rotten I think it's me
My nose itches and I need to pee
What's up with this I'm awake and fine
I'm not in pieces
I'm no Frankenstein

Chorus:
Static comes and static goes
I'm hearing static on some radio

Outro:
There's this little bump on the back of my neck
Just beneath the skin a tiny metal speck
No big deal
No need to have a cow
Hey what the hell
There's that fucking owl

(STATIC)

Crop Circles (Explicit)

Chorus:
I woke up again this morning
Could not find you anywhere
I looked beneath your covers
But your sweet smile it was not there
No echoed laughter down the hall
No footsteps on the stairs
I looked and looked but could not find you
Maybe tomorrow you'll be there

Verse 1:
There are sidewalks made of chocolate
On the street where angels go
And all the stores are brightly colored like
the sweet content they hold
With a price of just one penny
For each desire that you know
Your wants and needs go shopping for the
beauty of your soul
Through every door lies great adventure
And as you sleep I wait the while
Playing precious strings from heartfelt things
And gently whisper lullabies
I'll meet you on the corner one day soon
And ever hold
You in my arms on chocolate sidewalks
On the street where angels go

Chorus:
I woke up again this morning
Thought I heard you call my name
I ran out to the backyard
Your swing hung empty on it's chain
No castles in the sandbox
No chalk marks anywhere
I looked and looked but could not find you
Maybe tomorrow you'll be there

Verse 2:
There are sidewalks made of chocolate
On the street where angels go
With all my love for light to guide you
Along my heart the only road
You can fly beyond the rainbow
Up where the stardust shines like gold
Or splash around in moonbeams
On the playground of my soul
You'll be safe and sound forever
Beyond this realm of space and time
Where a mother keeps her precious secrets
And hides the ties that bind
I'll meet you on the corner
And for all eternity will hold
You in my arms on chocolate sidewalks
On the street where angles go
