CD Song Lyrics

Free As The Sun

Pick up the piece of your past

it’s time to move on

Finally happy at last, as I write this song

I see the world like it’s all I have left in my hands

I’ll live up to none but my own selfish demands.

And now I am, now I am, 

free as the sun.

Pick up the peace of our past

yeah, it’s time to move on.

I thought I was happy at last,

then I sang this song.

Look at this world.

It’s broken beyond repair.

Everyone harbors their own brand of self-despair.

But now I am, I always was,

free as the sun.

Now, I can see why you’ve done all these things that you’ve done.

Now, I can see why you’ve done all these things that you’ve done.

Now, I can see why you’ve done all these things that you’ve done.

But now I am, I always was,

free as a son.

Crucified

A man once told me long ago,

if God’s your Love then money is your foe.

So how can you stand there, pretending that you know

the road to paradise – with greed as your glow?

My name is John;  I’m the one who died,

gay and sharing, I was crucified.

No one gives a fuck.  Do you wanna know why?

‘Cause I didn’t have a cross burned between my eyes.

The serpents, they hiss and they yell.

What hypocrites!  Hate is under their mask.

While they laugh and they pray to some false past,

to a man who loved war, blood and hell!

they beat their wives after downing their flasks.

My name is John;  I’m the one who died,

gay and sharing, I was crucified.

No one gives a fuck.  Do you wanna know why?

‘Cause I didn’t have a cross burned between my eyes.

Facade (the Devil)

Well, if you listen with your eyes

don’t let the truth become disguised

and if she tempts you with her lies

and sings her precious lullabies

well, you’d better run ‘cause

He’ll be here to stay

‘cause the Devil’s looking very good today.

If she comes to shake your hand

and you think you’ve found a man

who will treat you in a different type of way,

may you come to realize

He was placed for your demise,

it’s just the Devil looking very good today.

She’s looking very good today.

Well, you’ll find her in the bags we hide below the bridge.

She runs a country we were told was free.

And you’ll find her in the jars where you hide your deepest scars

right here standing next to you and me.

Well, you’d better run

‘cause she’ll be here to stay,

‘cause the Devil’s looking very good today.

So, when he comes to shake your hand

and you think you’ve found a man

who will treat you in a different type of way,

may you come to realize

he was placed for your demise.

He’s just the Devil looking very good today.

Change: For Our Daughters, For Our Sons

1- We traumatize the youth with the hope of being rich.

They glorify the schools, growing up to be a snitch.

The whole damn human race is feeling paranoid.

Maybe take a second and realize we don’t exist.

2- Life is but illusion – a constant state of mind.

You and I are living, but in time we’re left behind,

destined to a purgatory deep inside of time

where heaven don’t exist, I’m guessing hell is hard to find.

3- Looking back on times that we used to spend together

well, I wonder had I stayed clean if it would have been better.

I wish I could catch my feelings, stuff ‘em in a letter,

send it in the mail during cold and stormy weather.

Refrain Stanza

Let’s try to make a change, for our daughters, for our sons.

Let’s try to solve our problems without pulling out a gun.

Let’s turn away from anger, reminisce on all the fun

we used to have as children, back at home when we were young.

4- I tried love, but I wasn’t very good at it.

I tried drugs and I turned into a drug addict.

I asked the Lord to come down from the heavens right above us

Show me that he cared enough.  Imagine, if He loved us!

5- Maybe all this poverty and war and other ruckus

(and imagine that, really try to fathom that)

CEO’s and politicians trading place with sewer rats,

maybe we can find peace – if you’re even into that.

6- We need change and we need it real soon.

The sun that wants to rise is sitting trapped behind the room,

trapped behind the gloom and all the sorrow and the hate.

As it is now, you have to lie to be great.

7- I can’t philosophize.  I think my memory is broken.

Results of heavy trauma and the weed that I’ve been smokin’.

Words I could have said, well I regret I never spoke ‘em.

Pictures that I kept, well I regret I never broke ‘em.

Let’s try to make a change, for our daughters, for our sons.

Let’s try to solve our problems without pulling out a gun.

Let’s turn away from anger, reminisce on all the fun

we used to have as children back at home when we were young.

8- Things you used to say, when I was just a boy

making paper boats of magazines, I used to call ‘em toys.

Float ‘em down the river – they never made a noise.

I know that when you beat me, well you didn’t have a choice.

9- I know the type of anger where you can’t escape your mind.

I understand it, dad, in fact I feel it all the time!

But in the end, it’s your decision whether to react,

‘cause life ain’t easy, sometimes it feels kinda whack.

I know the feeling with the needle when you’re doing smack

and laying, praying you could get maybe get your time back.

Let’s try to make a change, for our daughters for our sons.

Let’s try to solve our problems without pulling out a gun.

Let’s turn away from anger, reminisce on all the fun

we used to have as children back at home when we were young.

10- Think about the neighborhood,

the playground and the trees,

people walking everywhere when life was still a breeze.

That was back before I had to fall upon my knees

just to say a prayer, so I could put my mind at ease.
