Times of Sand

One day, one day I’ll be free
Free, free from this misery.
My heart, my heart it doesn’t need so much
Your laugh, your love, your gentle touch
You sooth my soul, you ease my pain,
I melt away in your gentle rain

But one kiss, just one kiss will kill me…. of this I am sure
For darling your love is more than I can endure
How our love, our pure love-song
Came to this, its so sad and so wrong
The love is still there, but it doesn’t belong
So one day, one day I’ll be free
Free, from this misery.

But for now, for now I’m caught in your vice
For your love, your love, I’ll pay any price.
My love, my life, it doesn’t need so much
One kiss to my lips with your gentle touch
And you’ll bring me down from your killer’s punch

One day, one day I’ll be free
Free, free from this misery.
My heart, my heart it doesn’t need so much
Your laugh, your love, your gentle touch
You sooth my soul, you ease my pain,
I wash away in your gentle rain

Your love, your love has no walls for me
But it’s a prison, a prison that others see.
Your love blinds me with bliss. It’s a smooth, smooth, gentle kiss
When I drink from your love I stand on the abyss.
One kiss, one kiss will kill me of that I’m sure
One kiss, one kiss it must be my cure.

This prison of yours has twists and turns
The key to your entrance is easy to earn
For there is no exit, no way to escape
I’m trapped in your maze, a maze of love and hate.

But one day, one day I’ll be free
Free, free from this misery.
My heart, my heart it doesn’t need so much
Your laugh, your love, your gentle touch
To sooth my soul, to ease my pain,
It will wash away in your gentle rain
Free, free from this misery
Free, free from this misery….

Masked Emotion

They say a balm can heal and a bomb can kill,
Time can heal, yet it’s time we kill.
Going alone is not easy or fair
But going together leads to despair.

I knew my way so straight and true.
I knew my way and what to do.
That’s all gone
And I don’t know why
It’s all so lost… Went off to die.

They say a balm can heal and a bomb can kill,
Time can heal, yet it’s time we kill.
Going alone is not easy or fair
Going together leads to despair.
They say a balm can heal and a bomb can kill,
Time can heal, yet it’s time we kill.

If you want to go fast, you go it alone
You’ll beat the others, you can claim that throne
But that throne is built on a bed of lies,
The corpse that it rules
Is covered with flies.

I miss being the calm, the calm in the storm
A time when chaos is always the norm
The eye of the hurricane
Is peace in disaster
But that peace is built on carnage where I am the master.
You will be scarred or dead, changed or gone
And with or without you, the storm just moves on.

They say a balm can heal and a bomb can kill,
Time can heal, yet it’s time we kill.
Going alone is not easy or fair
But going together leads to despair.

The life I had is long dead and gone
It was not right, it was not wrong
Weapons were close, my weapons were near
Life was simple. It was all so clear
And now its cloudy, my weapons are gone
It was not right but it was not wrong.
It just was. It just was….

I got nothing but time with no dreams to fill
It’s a quiet life leaving me empty and ill
So pass me that bottle and pass me that pill
The life I had is long dead and gone
It was not right, it was not wrong
It just was. It just was.

They say a balm can heal and a bomb can kill,
Time can heal, yet it’s time we kill.
Going alone is not easy or fair
Going together often leads to despair.

I don’t know what this life is about
I once knew, but it’s all in doubt
Going alone is not easy or fair
Going together often leads to despair.
At the end of a day, you are always alone
If you don’t like yourself, you’ll never be home… you’ll never find home

Think twice before you step on that mat
That’s my turf, cause I’ll yogi you flat.
I namaste till the day is done
I chill and I chill for my fun.

You’re left in the dust, I’ll leave you fast.

Shine your little light, mine’s brighter to see
Shine your little light from deep within
Mine shines brighter even when I’m drinking gin.

You are going to take me on? Come on, you wanna?

Combat Yoga - Stretchier Than You

You had it all, the best of the best
You were smarter and stronger and good-looking to boot
The women all said you were dangerous but cute
You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all (up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all (up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

The man in the mirror, he looked like a friend
He said the sky is the limit, your greatness no end.
But he’s nowhere near, he’s still at that bar
He’s still there and you’ve fallen far
It’s that cursed woman, you know in your heart
If it wasn’t for her, you’d have a new start.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You told me today, you should have it all
The best days of your life, were always right there
You never bothered to tell me, those days were thin air
You’d be a king, with a kingdom to reign
You said you would, if you didn’t have an ache and pain.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

Life is so fair when you’re up on top
But you fell a notch and now want it to stop
The glories you had, were gained by yourself
Those medals earned are up on a shelf
The troubles you have aren’t yours to blame
The man keeps you down, or you’d own the whole game.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

The system is stacked, its aiming at you
You can’t fight the world, there’s nothing to do
If it wasn’t for this and it wasn’t for that, you’d still be the best
You’d be the best if it wasn’t for that, you’d be the best if they’d just give you some rest
You got the plan, you know what to do
You know in your heart it can’t be you.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You have a plan, to regain it all,
But work is calling, you’ll get to it next Fall.
Cause the dog needs a bath and you need some rest
If it wasn’t for that, you’d be a huge success.
That gloried past, that you’ll regain
You know you will, when you’re feeling no pain

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You'ld Have It All

You stand there so proud; you stand there so true
You stand there strong till tis the death of you
You join your tribe to keep others outside
You join your tribe to hide your fears inside

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Blame the Black, Blame the White
Blame them all for starting this fight
Blame the Arabs, Blame the Jew
Blame whoever, but don’t ever blame you.
You say it’s my fault, for this ship that we’re in
You say it’s my fault that you never win
So let’s sink this boat, sink it so deep
And as we go down, not a tear shall we weep

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Changing the past won’t fix the mess that we’re in
But we change away and call it a win
This mess is yours; this mess is mine
But let’s blame others and say we’re just fine
Blame the man, blame the plan, blame the others and all that they do
But whatever you blame, don’t ever blame you.

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

They’re taking my colors, they’re changing the hue
The black’s not so black, the blue’s not so blue
But always remember those colors so true
Are nothing more than the colors we grew
We are who we love, so love the right things
Our love should be more than diamonds and rings
Your flag is all right, my flag is all wrong
You can’t hear the message over your song.

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaasave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Wave Your Flag

I keep burning my bridges, time after time,
They’re always rebuilt is what I find.
The past is there, I can’t let it go
It warms and haunts me, it’s a friend and a foe.

Burning my bridges down ( Tune is Da, da, da, DA, da)
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

Bridges rebuilt seem solid to feel,
But the lands where they lead, are an illusion unreal
They welcome me home, to a home that is gone
They warm me inside until the ashes are gone.
And I’ve burnt my bridges until they were gone.

Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

I’ve burnt those bridges, they should be gone,
I turn around and they stand there strong.
The past is there, I can’t let it go
It warms and haunts me, its a friend and a foe.
So, I keep burning my bridges, time after time.
They keep returning, is what I find.

Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

Beyond a new bridge there lie my new dreams
The bridge to be crossed, I’m trapped between streams.
Just cross that bridge, it’s just straight ahead
Why do I wait? Why this feeling of dread?
What if that land is not as it seems?
What if I find, I don’t like my dreams?

So, I think I’ll keep Burning My Bridges
Time after Time
Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Burning my bridges down.

Burning My Bridges

We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You told me today, you should have it all
The best days of your life, were always right there
You never bothered to tell me, those days were thin air
You’d be a king, with a kingdom to reign
You said you would, if you didn’t have an ache and pain.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

Life is so fair when you’re up on top
But you fell a notch and now want it to stop
The glories you had, were gained by yourself
Those medals earned are up on a shelf
The troubles you have aren’t yours to blame
The man keeps you down, or you’d own the whole game.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

The system is stacked, its aiming at you
You can’t fight the world, there’s nothing to do
If it wasn’t for this and it wasn’t for that, you’d still be the best
You’d be the best if it wasn’t for that, you’d be the best if they’d just give you some rest
You got the plan, you know what to do
You know in your heart it can’t be you.

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You have a plan, to regain it all,
But work is calling, you’ll get to it next Fall.
Cause the dog needs a bath and you need some rest
If it wasn’t for that, you’d be a huge success.
That gloried past, that you’ll regain
You know you will, when you’re feeling no pain

You were the best, the cream of the crop
And If it wasn’t for them, you’d still be on top.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.
We all ^(up with voice) used to be somebody,
But we’re never who we were.

You'ld Have It All

You stand there so proud; you stand there so true
You stand there strong till tis the death of you
You join your tribe to keep others outside
You join your tribe to hide your fears inside

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Blame the Black, Blame the White
Blame them all for starting this fight
Blame the Arabs, Blame the Jew
Blame whoever, but don’t ever blame you.
You say it’s my fault, for this ship that we’re in
You say it’s my fault that you never win
So let’s sink this boat, sink it so deep
And as we go down, not a tear shall we weep

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Changing the past won’t fix the mess that we’re in
But we change away and call it a win
This mess is yours; this mess is mine
But let’s blame others and say we’re just fine
Blame the man, blame the plan, blame the others and all that they do
But whatever you blame, don’t ever blame you.

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaaaave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

They’re taking my colors, they’re changing the hue
The black’s not so black, the blue’s not so blue
But always remember those colors so true
Are nothing more than the colors we grew
We are who we love, so love the right things
Our love should be more than diamonds and rings
Your flag is all right, my flag is all wrong
You can’t hear the message over your song.

So, waaaaave your flag, wave it so proud
Waaaaave that flag, tis a funeral shroud
Waaasave goodbye to all that you love
Waaaaave goodbye as you fight and shove

Wave Your Flag

I keep burning my bridges, time after time,
They’re always rebuilt is what I find.
The past is there, I can’t let it go
It warms and haunts me, it’s a friend and a foe.

Burning my bridges down ( Tune is Da, da, da, DA, da)
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

Bridges rebuilt seem solid to feel,
But the lands where they lead, are an illusion unreal
They welcome me home, to a home that is gone
They warm me inside until the ashes are gone.
And I’ve burnt my bridges until they were gone.

Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

I’ve burnt those bridges, they should be gone,
I turn around and they stand there strong.
The past is there, I can’t let it go
It warms and haunts me, its a friend and a foe.
So, I keep burning my bridges, time after time.
They keep returning, is what I find.

Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Lighting the fire, fanning the flames
I’ll just keep, burning those bridges down.

Beyond a new bridge there lie my new dreams
The bridge to be crossed, I’m trapped between streams.
Just cross that bridge, it’s just straight ahead
Why do I wait? Why this feeling of dread?
What if that land is not as it seems?
What if I find, I don’t like my dreams?

So, I think I’ll keep Burning My Bridges
Time after Time
Burning my bridges down
Burning my bridges down.
Burning my bridges down.

Burning My Bridges
