Letters from the Psych Ward

This operation needs some facilitation
For the motivation of healing my soul
Blaming everyone for so long is a deadly game

Pointing fingers all the time *Can you travel in your mind
Cos the job is inside * A coup d’é·tat’s about to go down

Letters from the Psych Ward

This circus is filled with clowns
In the moment is the key for freeing you and releasing me
Your break has come to town

Pointing fingers all the time *Can you travel in your mind
Cos the job is inside * A coup d’é·tat’s about to go down

Letters from the Psych Ward

Out on a Jones

Out on a Jones

The wild west in full effect * Once again tapped into the source
The pain and suffering ran its course
Missed the gig on an account of the divorce
Let it go so it will flow * Turned down the heat going toe to toe
Spank the monkey * It’s all good in the hood * Mum is the word in my neighborhood

Second guessed but now you’re impressed
Marching forward straight to the death
Getting pulled into the light * Take a deep breath * Come back alive

Out on a Jones

Rain dance in the middle of June * Couldn’t have come a moment too soon
Dirty bones soaked it in bleach * Double dippin’ to avoid the heat
Back to the search it’s all within reach * Tripped on the pavement
Laid out in the street * If you want to dance with me take it slow
Don’t you know I’ll let it all go

Second guessed but now you’re impressed
Marching forward straight to the death
Getting pulled into the light * Take a deep breath * Come back alive

Out on a Jones

Gonna set the spark to your fire * If you’re low just get higher
Double time ain’t worth my mind * Ran the game * Crossed the line
A little longer * Keep it together *Got the desire for the forever

Sanity is hazy * Clarity is fading * It’s not your time

Second guessed but now you’re impressed
Marching forward straight to the death
Getting pulled into the light * Take a deep breath * Come back alive

Out on a Jones

The Whore of Babylon

Droppin’ like flies on one too many highs
Ain’t no surprise you’re at the end of the line
Once again we’re watching the sunrise
Her blood was my wine * Once upon a time

Straight star shooter from the other side * Lost your mind lost in time

Déjà vu that’s your clue * Whistlin’ dixie out of tune
Kissing on The Whore of Babylon * Beware the Whore of Babylon

Tomb with a view * It’s a who knows who
Swagger and attitude * Why don’t you get a clue
Do you feel alright * All you wanna do is fight
Got my card to play so I won’t fade away

Straight star shooter from the other side * Lost your mind lost in time

Déjà vu that’s your clue * Whistlin’ dixie out of tune
Kissing on The Whore of Babylon * Beware the Whore of Babylon

Delirious mysterious * The lightning strike is serious
Another memory, laugh, and a smile
A soldier falls * I forget for a while
Fame fried Freddy’s fever for fast fortune
Only lead him to mass torture

Déjà vu that’s your clue * Whistlin’ dixie out of tune
Kissing on The Whore of Babylon
Your loose lips * A slip of the tongue * Don’t you wish I wanted some
Dancing with The Whore of Babylon * Beware The Whore of Babylon

Babbling on in Babylon

Keys to the Kingdom

The king of the jungle is ready to rumble once again
After the ceremony headed home at dawn
Got my queen * Now where’s my fortune
Cast the darkness out

Can you feel the rhythm * Your soul’s in prison
Wanting to break free * I got the Keys to the Kingdom
Just for you and me

The queen of the rebels is quite the devil I must say
The tree of cats where the felines lie
The seed of life * You’re not born to die

Can you feel the rhythm * Your soul’s in prison
Wanting to break free * I got the keys to the kingdom
Just for you and me

Babbling on in Babylon

Dirty Halo

I don’t mind your dirty halo* This time the snake shed its skin
I don’t mind your dirty halo * Search for the light deep within

The agony of my pain * And every single punch that I took
Was all to show my future queen * That I’m the one who wrote the book
Brave and courageous * And a little contagious
As the witch danced and cackled * It opened the door to be famous

Rise above in the afterglow * It’s for real don’t you know
Gotta bucket of gold within my heart * Starting to connect the dots
The youth’s gone cold with the fatal blow * The second coming’s a no go
I don’t mind your dirty halo

I don’t mind your dirty halo* This time the snake shed its skin
I don’t mind your dirty halo * Search for the light deep within

Heal your insides * And the mind and body follows
Like a tune up from all the pain * Trauma and sorrow
It’s really all so simple * Yet a bitter pill to swallow
I know you’re better than that * So why the hell are you so hollow

Rise above in the afterglow * It’s for real don’t you know
Gotta bucket of gold within my heart * Starting to connect the dots
The youth’s gone cold with the fatal blow * The second coming’s a no go
I don’t mind your dirty halo

I don’t mind your dirty halo* This time the snake shed its skin
I don’t mind your dirty halo * Search for the light deep within

Saw the cyclops * Said “you’re dead ya know”
He still don’t listen * Back who the flow
Angry bitter ol’ soul * Stuck in a body destined to roll
Freaky critter goes low but the lower they are * The longer they crawl
The deeper they fall

The Queen of Everything

Courage * Faith * Strength and determination
Love is your greatest weapon of choice
Sweet angels please give me my voice * Open up my ears
I paid the price through all the years * For all of my sins

The Queen of Everything
She makes my heart shine and my soul sing
The Queen of Everything
Our worlds aligned * Now I’m her king
The Queen of Everything

Fakin’ love to an invincible lover
Is almost guaranteed not to make you suffer
Love in the eyes * Such a pleasant surprise
Chipped away all the stone * Now try me on for size

The Queen of Everything
She makes my heart shine and my soul sing
The Queen of Everything
Our worlds aligned * Now I’m her king
The Queen of Everything

All you gotta do is breathe

The Queen of Everything
She makes my heart shine and my soul sing
The Queen of Everything
Our worlds aligned * Now I’m her king
The Queen of Everything

All you gotta do is breathe

Devil with the Angel Face

Fakin’ love to an invincible lover
Is guaranteed just to make you suffer
Now that the sun is rising * You can come back in from hiding

That kind of love is the killing kind

Devil with the Angel Face * Casted out and out of place
Devil with the Angel Face * Slow and steady lost the race

They all want the fame and money * In this land of milk and honey
You fell under the witches’ spell * Turned up the volume so you couldn’t tell

That kind of love is the killing kind

Devil with the Angel Face * Casted out and out of place
Devil with the Angel Face * Slow and steady lost the race

(All strung out)

Hay roller whatchu’ gotta say * Whatchu got for me
Now that my debt’s been paid
My mind is out to get me * She was my everything
My mind is out to get me * She took my everything

Goodbye Mr. Faded Glory

Zen voodoo the most potent potion yet
No need to make love to my ego * It’s just not me amigo
Cursed us all as gringos * So we can mix and mingle
Let the holy water tingle * My heart’s done its time

The queen befriends them all and is true to her call
She sent them out to find me * So our children can save me

Goodbye Mr. Faded Glory

Motivated * Highly rated * Switched and baited
Is it worth the price? * Terminated the lacerations and
Frustrations * Jungle fever got me free of the vice
Troubles never got me anywhere

The queen befriends them all and is true to her call
She sent them out to find me * So our children can save me

Goodbye Mr. Faded Glory

Velvet Girl

Kicked out of school for actin’ a fool
While I was out of town with my main girl
Lickin’ your wound cos it ain’t so cool
On a flight to dive back into the world

Rollin’ me over though you were clever
Tryin’ to pull the wool over my eyes
And the great pretender stuck in the never
Ghostin’ for years ain’t no surprise

Crashing cars slappin’ the stars
The compound in the hills has a killer view
I dream about her kiss the hit and muses
Now the one with no clue just got the boot

Are you still booking your backwoods
My side kick is Lady Luck
Moaning my name in the backseat
When the lightning finally struck

Velvet Girl
A dead set pearl
Velvet Girl
Come rock my world

Dancing with the Angels

Here I am again nursing the broken * When will this end
When hurtful things are spoken * I thought you were my friend
Now my heart is nearly frozen * Forever and always ain’t some silly cheap ass slogan

Jungle juice showed me the keyhole
Skeleton key opens up the unknown * Dancing in celebration
Her birdy friends carry over * Throughout creation * I cried without even knowing

Dancing with the Angels * Ain’t it so sentimental
Dancing with the Angels * Won’t you please heal my soul

Closed my eyes and much to my surprise * The savior came back to town to fit me with my new crown * The womb had no view
Just a sea of snakes and wishing wells * They claim to make me brand new

Dancing with the Angels * Ain’t it so sentimental
Dancing with the Angels * Won’t you please heal my soul

Darkness doesn’t matter * Cos it has no power
Forgiveness shoots through my spine * Over soured valentines
She’s so sad-n-cold * Like a rebel tornado * Her soul’s been bought-n-sold

Dancing with the Angels * Ain’t it so sentimental
Dancing with the Angels * Won’t you please heal my soul

Mia

Hush-a-bye my baby soft and new
Ooh her loveliness * Gypsy dance in the rain
Hush-a-bye my baby what you do
Ooh, the baby cries * The wind she’s a-callin’ your name

Mia

Where you came from you ain’t alone
Live and loved from the old jawbone
Ahh don’t you cry * You’re home sweet home

Rock-a-bye sweet lady gypsy blue
Ooh, the nightingale’s singin’ her song in the rain
Hush-a-bye sweet lady soft and new
Ooh don’t you cry * The wind she’s a-callin’ your name

Mia

Come too soon that sunny day
You give your heart away
No divorcee * No repoussé
