The Black Water

Another night on the eastern shore 
You want it bad but baby I want more 
But more is all you give 
Another day spent nine to five 
Corporate calls then you're set aside 
Alright, more is all you'll give 
Another day where the coffee's weak 
Run out the door but you drag your feet 
But more is all you give 
Another night spent on the street 
I stumble drunk back to Julie's 
I know there's more to life than this 

Still fighting the addiction 
But it's the same damn song 
The water's only black here 
And the wine is gone 

The last time we talked, I barely survived 
But I tried and I tried and I tried 
And I don't know if I can take it one more time 
Give me one last chance to say 
Give me one last chance to say 
I'm sorry it ended this way 

Still fighting the addiction 
But it's the same damn song 
The water's only black here 
And the wine is gone

These Words

You can cut me down and kill me, cast me out and leave me to die

With a twitch against my wrist and a River of Styx will guide me home
Thank god that hell is warm because your body's been absorbed by the cold

I've got a pocket full of stones
You can trust these words
Sang the scarecrow
You're just one bird

Why'd you call yourself my friend
If you're leaving in the end
of ever after
I was swallowed by the black
and haunted by the nightmares 
in her laugher
and I broke your heart in half 
just to put the pieces back
on the altar 

I've got a pocket full of stones
you can trust these words
sang the scarecrow
you're just one bird
I've got a pocket full of ashes 
and cigarette burns
nobody cares
you're just one bird

God I wish I could take it all back
I'll keep my eyes shut tight

The Great Divide

So I stand in the shadow of the planet and god I have arrived
Can't stand that I take my life for granted, it's sad to say you're right
I'll be damned if I do not get past this, I'll be damned if I do not get past this
Don't come so close, I am cancer, please don't come back, you can't stay here

I'm a tad bit terrified of what's been on your mind
You keep on coming closer so I'll make the great divide

I lost my life in the turning tide, my body buried in the deep
In my I heart I still believe 

Don't come so close, I am cancer, please don't come back, you can't stay here, someday so soon, I might be there, please don't come back here

I'm a tad bit terrified of what's been on your mind and you keep on coming closer, so I'll make the great divide

We'll fall asleep in a sound proof room, with padded walls and a jacket too, dream all night of a chance to leave, 'cause in our minds we are truly free

Thanks,
