Fictional (free) 01:36
The past won't return Photos will burn To hide my monstrosity With your generosity To keep your distance From my existence What's done is done Stay or run I sell you my love but you don't get it I sell you my pride but you don't get it I sell you my heart but you won't get it cause it's all fictional I'm not the new internet sensation I'm not the usual party celebration You can call me when you want to talk You can join me on my lone walk

Quit Fooling Around (free) 02:10
I know you're not a vestal virgin it's Friday night every night of the week it's been so long; you didn't call, you didn't write me stop playing hide and seek Quit Fooling Around Quit Fooling Around end this planless living it's never too late too choose pick yourself back up (pull yourself together) and end this show of bad news Quit Fooling Around Quit Fooling Around I'll take you home give you a bath clean your back we'll have a laugh we'll have a wine and some dine you'll sleep so well under my spell why should a woman like you waste her life on men like them tomorrow looked a lot better yesterday cut the drama while you can Quit Fooling Around Quit Fooling Around

You pretend that you're busy but you're not doing anything Except dropping the monkey on somebody else There is a village somewhere Missing an idiot Does this ring a jarring bell Don't Make Me Block You I hate to see you go Don't Make Me Block You Stop this miserable show You cut the fun out of things Rubbing people the wrong way Stop talking for a minute Listen to what others say We're moving in circles Don't try to hold me down There is more than meets the eye Stop playing a dumb clown Yeh right, like that's gonna happen anytime soon Don't Make Me Block You I hate to see you go Don't Make Me Block You You reap what you sow
4.
Expect Nothing (free) 01:24
try not to look forward too much you never know what will happen don't ask for a smile or a touch I don't care that much expect nothing expect nothing you better expect nothing expect nothing you better expect you think something good will happen soon better brace yourself nothing will sound like a lovely tune you better watch your health
5.
Pretty Girl (free) 01:25
Never read a book Or watch the news It's all about the look To impress the happy few Shallow conversation Party night and day No real education An eternal roll-play Girl You Are So Beautiful But I Feel Nothing Ignore social conventions Dump the stupid boyfriend Do what you really want to do You'll be happier in the end
6.
Let It Go (free) 01:18
I've wasted so much of my time thinking about how much time I have wasted I've wasted so much of my life thinking about how much of my life I've wasted let it go let it go free your mind and let it go all your troubles will come to an end let it go let it go free your mind and let it go all your problems will come to an end

golden roses yellow is hot scorched earth makes you a lot burning houses bridges too flat standing still makes you forget you've got to make do with what you've got

Poem (free) 01:16
If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.

with your big brown eyes and the short silk dress the long dark hair never a mess the small shoes pink and white whatever you wear it suits you right girl you are so beautiful but I feel nothing girl you are so beautiful but I feel nothing you always know better tell others what to do your wish is the law but do you have a clue you never stop talking day in and day out shallow conversation and always so loud girl you are so beautiful but I feel nothing girl you are so beautiful but I feel nothing

I am sick of sitting by the window I am sick of sleeping on the couch You're always bossing me around I need to be freed Today is the last day I made up my mind I'm going astray Leaving you behind I don't wanna be I don't wanna be I don't wanna be Your pet anymore I need to be outside Chasing the birds Seeking a fight Roll in the dirt I don't wanna be I don't wanna be I don't wanna be Your pet anymore

Princess Carolyn (free) 00:57
I need a manager to structure my existence I need an agent to provide me with assistance I need a girlfriend to clean up my mess The more I see of men the better I like cats I need my own Princess Carolyn she calls out our mistakes and don't put up with crap she is no-nonsense we all need that / a cat I need my own Princess Carolyn you can win with Princess Carolyn

Already Dead (free) 01:45
waking up in your bed looking around you're already dead born to die what's the use insignificant lifeforms to be abused in my head I'm already dead in my head I'm already dead when you're born you go to the light you cry cause you're sad you're already dead everything is fake just atoms and forces you'll never know the real sources

Frozen (free) 01:49
he said there was ice cream under the stairs he led her to the cellar and coaxed her down there in his damp basement by the dim light she felt his body press up against her tight she was frozen... frozen in time he took an old rag tied it around her mouth she could not cry could not scream and shout he didn't stop pushing until she bled told her not to tell what he did or said she was frozen... frozen in time now she lives alone in her own home with no basement he is still in her mind forever to haunt her in time...

Mad As A Hatter (free) 01:45
lyrics by Snoozin: such a reverie iced the cake not chocolate, so sorry the crumbs were fodder for the crows and time still ticked, still ticked lyrics by Coolparadiso: Wandering in wonderland Like the queen of hearts Trying to find my place in here The end and were it starts Old Walruses and large turtles Animals with voices Trying now to influence me Affecting all my choices Mad as a hatter I will be be No one knows whats wrong I see the purple flowers And break out into song

What Went Wrong (free) 01:17
what went wrong what went wrong what went wrong what went wrong we started with a clean slate and messed it up (again) all was for nothing we lost many friends alone in the world setting our own course maybe this time we'll get it right try to learn from our mistakes what went wrong what went wrong I don't know what went wrong what went wrong what went wrong now we have to start all over again what went wrong what went wrong what went wrong what went wrong

Trial By Fire (free) 01:21
trial by fire trial by fire you don't care if you're a big lier trial by fire trial by fire something it will be trial by fire how can you be so sure what you say is right common sense is not so common with all your might how can you be so smug someday you will die with your dirty conscience you're gonna fry trial by fire trial by fire I blame your burning desire trial by fire trial by fire you're on the road to trial by fire trial by fire no use for your golden empire trial by fire trial by fire we're all waiting for your trial by fire

afraid of change they stay behind ignoring the problems facing humankind they close their eyes for evil to come creeping from behind nowhere to run stick to their bonus their yacht and their wife three kids and a mistress and a mansion under the sun ooh ooh ooh ooh that's why they call it done that's why they call it done

Another Poem (free) 01:48
The brain is wider than the sky, For, put them side by side, The one the other will include With ease, and you beside. The brain is deeper than the sea, For, hold them, blue to blue, The one the other will absorb, As sponges, buckets do. The brain is just the weight of God, For, lift them, pound for pound, And they will differ, if they do, As syllable from sound.

State Of Denial (free) 02:02
this anachronism needs a final push it's a comedy-drama with princes and princesses and I miss my pet I’m frozen dead kill this background noise kill this background noise I need an opening To escape We need an opening to survive I need an opening to open up my life I'm in a rush we need some friendly fire to start a brute awakening let me explain the theory of nothing ignorance is bliss all protests are in vain in the state of denial in the state of denial we're living in the state of denial deniable plausibility (that's reality) we're living in the state of denial

You're Not Alone (free) 02:50
when you're feeling down pain is eating you up sitting on your couch your drowning deep inside you don't know what you're missing if you don't know what you're missing sleeping alone in your bed waking up feeling dead you're not alone time's ticking away nowhere real to stay will it all be over soon all you think is dark and doom unable to move dreading to go out the world is a monster is it your fault you're not alone take the day off, or the whole month travel a lot, see new things read fiction books, go to movies, be creative, make a work of art you feel abandoned empty inside your body is frozen you just want to hide they laugh behind your back can't see the lending hand so many regrets it seems impossible to mend somewhere someone is waiting for you somewhere someone is waiting for you somewhere someone is waiting for you somewhere someone is waiting for you

life won't give you what you wish surprises will come and go it is just a hit and miss you have to follow the flow nothing will stay the same forever nothing will stay the same you can choose what you want you can chase what you need you can buy what you like but will it give you pleasure nothing will stay the same forever nothing will stay the same forever you won't get anything that you expect nothing will stay the same lower your expectations lower your expectations
