Lyrics

$10M

and it's all for you

There's no guilt, there's no strings, there's no debt

What would you do - would you change a thing?

Or would you leave it all the same?

 

You're so pure

You're so pure

 

So I asked some people

what they would do

Said' cure diseases, and some would rule

Pay their medical bills, travel the world

Get out of debt, open a store, help their kids

 

But not you

You're so pure

You're so pure

You're so humble

 

Would you change, would you change a thing?

You wouldn't change, wouldn't change a thing.

 

I'd help my family, then I'd help my friends

Get everyone I know out of debt

Then I'd change, yeah I'd change the world

Would you change, would you change the world?

 

Would you change, would you change a thing?

You wouldn't change, wouldn't change a thing

Lyrics

Baby, I'm a mess

I've got words for you tonight

So let me explain

I can't look you in the eyes

 

Maybe I was lost

Before cupid struck my soul

I hope you'll hear me out

And understand my role

 

Maybe I'm not right and I should stay until tomorrow

I'm a little rough and worse for wear

If you could look right through these sharp and pointed edges

Then you would see that I'm trying to repair

 

Baby I confess

I got a little scared last night

And I don't understand

Because we didn't even fight

 

You took my breath away

When you first looked in my eyes

And if I said I didn't care

You'd know that it's a lie

 

But I'm a lost and wandering dreamer

And I don't know if this is where I should stay

Yeah the world has broken and burned me

And I don't know if you can love me this way

 

Darling - Don't call me darling

Baby - Unless you're mine

Honey - You'll have to promise

Don't swim away - Don't sting my heart!

My love - Your love?

Until the end - The end of time?

I promise - Don't promise

But I mean it - Then I’ll believe it

 

Maybe this is right - and you should stay with me forever

But we're a little rough and worse for wear

If you could look right through - I love your sharp and pointed edges

And all that really matters... is I love you.

Lyrics

Capo 3 C, G, Am, F, F-

 

If I could leave here tonight, I would

I’m not talking driving, but leaving for good.

I’m not talking flying, or taking a train.

I’m not talking dying, or living again.

I’m talking leaving

this world and this place.

I mean I’d pass by

your gods and your saints.

 

I mean I’d part from my family and friends.

I mean you listening  – you’d never hear me again.

I wouldn’t sing you this song and these lines

I wouldn’t live here – this world and these times

Man alive!

 

Feel like a tourist, though I know I have tried

Feel like I’m watching

you living your lives.

Like there’s something better...

And I have been down

Like there’s just something better...

than Earth and this town.

 

So If I could leave here tonight, I would

I hope you would move on, for me and for good.

Cuz’ where I am going, I won’t need these lies

And where I am going, I won’t need this life.

Man alive!

Lyrics

 

One door stops another from opening up. 

The sound that you were chasing, 

the noise that drove you crazy

the silent screams and wishful dreams now out. 


And it's too much to ask of you

that you'd stop all you can do

the everything that you could put me through.


And somehow I have made it

though these nights I feel contagious

Now I look and it seems it is plain to see.


Through challenges and fights, 

I ain't leaving you tonight

I didn't come this far to turn and walk away


Oh oh, 


I ain't leaving you tonight

I ain't leaving here tonight.

Lyrics

Leave before I change my mind

I change my mind

I've changed my mind.

Leave today while I'm sane

while I'm sane

well I'm sane. 

(sugar honey!)


There's cigarettes in my pocket

I like it. 

My memory is in your veins, in your veins

And what you fear is in my closet 

where I've had it

don't look - turn away


I know you're gone

My feelings will move on 

I know you're gone


Tempt my body, test my feelings - for meaning

my secrets are your toys

And what I want is in the gutter

where I found her

I lived your life of lies



I know you're gone

My feelings will move on 

I know you're gone

Lyrics

 

 

Look out for the light
as I crawl in from the night
Every time I wean you don't help me
Scratch away from here
as this pride is forged from fear
Sold a purest hate, 
like a tourist
Every time I wait
death comes to those who wait
Scars pollute the flesh 
and this soul we don't speak of
Trying to be right while my darkness comes to light
Grasping at your sands but I'm slipping
Your faith is all I need
Is there someone who believes?
I'm so awful that you seethe
Like I'm drowning
here inside this cage of Earth and end of days
Cut ties and felt amazed but I'm starving
Just then the clouds recede
as I feel you lifting me
I feel you help me breathe
Will you cut your ties?
Will you run away?
Like other times...
Will you stand and fight?
Can you stop and breathe?
Pushing forth and up
I could use a little luck
could use a little love from these so-called
lovers, friends and mates
been too little and too late
All this secret hate
all these secrets
Whispers in the ears
whispering our fears
Whispers of these lives in the shadows
Truth and light are lost
I've always known the cost
of every single thing I'll always want
Just then the clouds recede
as I feel you lifting me
I feel you help me breathe
Will you cut your ties?
Will you run away?
Like other times...
Will you stand and fight?
Can you stop and breathe?Look out for the light

Look out for the light

as I crawl in from the night

Every time I wean you don't help me

Scratch away from here

as this pride is forged from fear

Sold a purest hate,

like a tourist

 

Every time I wait

death comes to those who wait

Scars pollute the flesh

and this soul we don't speak of

Trying to be right as my darkness comes to light

Grasping at your sands but I'm slipping

Your faith is all I need

Is there someone who believes?

I'm so awful that you seethe

Like I'm drowning

here inside this cage of Earth and end of days

Cut ties and felt amazed but I'm starving

 

Just then the clouds recede

as I feel you lifting me

I feel you help me breathe

 

Will you cut your ties?

Will you run away?

Like other times...

Will you stand and fight?

Can you stop and breathe?

 

Pushing forth and up

I could use a little luck

Could use a little love from these so-called

lovers, friends and mates

been too little and too late

All this secret hate

all these secrets

Whispers in the ears

whispering our fears

Whispers of these lives in the shadows

Truth and sight are lost

I've always known the cost

of every single thing that I'll always want

 

 

Just then the clouds recede

as I feel you lifting me

I feel you help me breathe

 

Will you cut your ties?

Will you run away?

Like other times...

Will you stand and fight?

Can you stop and breathe?

Lyrics

If my whole life had lead up to this point
I'd want it to be honest

I'd let go of falsehood and all the little lies
between us
I would tell you the truth from a dull face for life
you're not made of ceramic my darling
you'll survive

You're not my girl
I'm not your man
let's stop over romanticizing the past
let's let go of the plans that you thought we had made
what's 29 years of a life anyway?

Tired and alone
and in town
I know you're not the answer at all
even if you were around
Will I look back in 10 years on my 30's and say
I hope that my 40's dear God aren't the same?

You're not my girl
I'm not your man
let's stop over romanticizing the past
let's let go of the plans that you thought we had made
what's 29 years of a life anyway?
Those memories of us just go through the grave
I'm sorry for wasting your time
I'd say

Lyrics

I can't do this anymore

Falling asleep at a quarter to three
I'll have a couple of shots and that'll do it for me
I'll write a couple of lines or sort a couple of lines
Face first to the glass - still feeling fine

I'll wake up on this floor then I'll start it again
Yeah there's no one to stop me cuz' nobody can
And I'm doing my worst at being a man
I'm wasting this life and I know I am

And I can see it just fine, it's like a thousand degrees 
of burning up my heart right until I leave
And nobody listens and everyone leaves
Now nobody moves and nobody breathes

So everyone look - I've got a loaded gun
pointed at you all while I'm blinded by sun
While I'm looking for faith while I'm looking for fun
While I'm looking for truth
and I'm finding there's none

There's so many things that I wanted to do
I keep telling myself I've gotta' get over you
I've gotta' get out the way
I've gotta' learn how to dive
I've gotta' learn how to listen
Gotta' learn how to lie

I'm gunna' change these stripes and I'll prove it to you
I'm gunna' do all the things that I said I would do
This is a promise, this isn't a song
That this was a man and he's given his all

I can't do this anymore

Here I am
solitude
happiness
selflessness

Am I happy now?
Have I ever been?
It's changing me
Just look at me

This righteousness
It's such a mess
It's killing me
I'm getting cold

Here I am
In shades of red
a fallen fool
and where were you?

So just laugh at me
So just laugh at me
just laugh at me

Lyrics

Until we get the song recorded in studio I figured I'd post the demo mp3.

 

Intro

Verse 1 - Let's get a house, with a big old porch
Red brick wash and an old wooden door
Put our hearts inside and mind the doorway
Always safe, my love is your home



Verse 2 - Let's build a life, take on the world with you 
It's our love that makes it all come true
Now here we are, the future blown wide open
You and I, together for life



Pre chorus -- I remember those times we weathered through
You promised a future, ready for two


** Chorus -- I promise you love
The key to my heart
I promise you love
Let's never be apart
I promise you love
Forever and always
I promise you love, my jay...
Not just for today

Intro

Verse 3 - Let's grow old, aged hands held tight
Look back at this - hah - and smile at life
Some never find their mated soul, lost forever
We built this life, a love together

Chorus

Repeat chorus

I don't want to wear you out
but I'm a ball of energy
I've been here all my life
I don't wanna' wear you out
Don't wanna' wear you out

Look into my eyes
try to figure it all out
Inside I am falling here

Release me out your head
at least get out of here
this is not your home
please get out of here

oh oh oh

When I'm not around
I'm in a crowd
I'm not allowed in a crowd

Stay away from me
just stay away from me
just stay away from me

Lyrics

 

I saw you as a blur then you faded away
Couldn’t grasp at your sands
There’s another mistake

It’s like a cross walk
Or waiting at a bus stop
I’m screaming out your name
But you just didn’t turn around

The coroner sold my old spot
I’m shopping for a new plot
Laying down this head at night
Regretting that I couldn’t change

Lovers come and lovers go
Gotta’ go, we oughta’ do something a little more so we can escape
So we try it and we fly
But we flew too high
Burning up our wings
And sent through hell
for Heaven’s sake

This is the one that made me famous

It’s like a drive-by
I’m waving just to say hi
There’s power in my hands
And I’ve just never bled them out

If I’m sneaking in from the police
and you’re staying I’ll probably choose
sleeping alone on the couch
with a slice just to make it through

Okay I’m suddenly famous
from spending my time in the basement
crying alone on the mic
cuz’ my brains aren’t working right

This is the one that made me famous

I saw you as a blur then you faded away
Couldn’t grasp at your sands
There’s another mistake

It’s like a cross walk
Or waiting at a bus stop
I’m screaming out your name
But you just didn’t turn around

The coroner sold my old spot
I’m shopping for a new plot
Laying down my head at night
Regretting that I couldn’t change

 
I saw you as a blur then you faded away

I saw you as a blur then you faded away

Wrote this almost ten years ago. I never recorded it because exactly like James Cameron with the Avatar (exactly like), I just didn't have the technology handy at the time to do it. I guess I still don't because I screwed up the lyrics and the overall order of the song pretty good. Ahhhh demos.

Lyrics


Followed my hurt
right into this wound
is it wrong to be here?
Am I supposed to be here?

Bleed the bullet hole
right inside my head
we eye each other here
in the assembly of the dead

You gave your heart to me
and now I watch it bleed
I can make it stop
the end of everything

You gave your heart to me
and I will not relent
soothing your dis-ease
because you won't repent

I know why you won't repent

I've been contemplating gods
our so-called idols
these idols of the mind

And I'm sorry to disappoint you
but you may not like
like just what I find

This solitarity deity we're sold
can't be as petty as He seems
Unconditional love is unconditional
because that's just what it means


All you gods so high
show us your might
and reach out your hand
lift up the weak
Are you gone on a trip?
Did you leave Earth?
Did you fall asleep?
Did you slip away?

 

I've been thinking
All that power so why's this guy so petty all the time?
I've been trying to forget it
but the truth is still right
always on my side


All you gods so high
show us your might
and reach out your hand
lift up the weak
Are you gone on a trip?
Did you leave Earth?
Did you fall asleep?
Did you slip away?

Slip Away
Fall asleep.

All you gods so high
show us your might
and reach out your hand
lift up the weak
Are you gone on a trip?
Did you leave Earth?
Did you fall asleep?
Did you slip away?

Here I am
I'm just meat
Can't be you
don't want to be
cuz' I'm the best
meal that anyone could be

But I'm caught
now I'm dead
life goes on
people forget
that I'm blacked out
you'll survive these hard times

And I'm caught in the middle of an infinite toroidal loop
of life imagining itself

All this power in my veins
like I'm a god
like you're my saints
keep your faith
don't you fear
I'll respect you if you will hear
You'll survive asteroids
my tornadoes won't leave you dry
I'm blacked out
But I'm still here

You'll escape
We'll escape

And we're caught in the middle of an infinite toroidal loop
of life imagining itself will escape

Escape

Lyrics

O-oh oh, o-oh

Thankfully, made it to my 30's
where I will now reside
promised myself bad habits go now
and my will I will not divide

A decade has come and gone
in my rearview
I say so long

Oh faithful heart I seek
a life with integrity
without envy, hate or greed
time's disappeared my 20's

Awareness intact this guitar on my back
and I cannot complain
moved on from the past
the best is yet to come to pass
that I won't rescind, I'll retain

Sleeper sleep at last
we've disappeared our past
all these mud-suits must go
and I don't know about you
but I'm a million times more than this body will ever be
a million times more than this body will ever be able to hold

O-oh oh, o-oh

I don't know about you but I'm a million times more than this body will ever be able to hold.

So take what you want cuz' I'm not here forever.
This body can't hold me, this body could never.
Don't demand I describe what I see cuz' how could I?
I won't need these eyes where I'm going from this life.

But take what you'll need but remember I'm leaving.
Don't forget all the Lear's and the Wilcock's pleading.
We stand and we side with the truth while we're bleeding.
No Van Allen belts will stop this signal from screaming.

I take what I need and have sore eyes from reading.
If this life is a test, are you passing and leaving?
I don't know about you but I am
a million times more than this body will ever be able to hold.

These are my hands
and the best of me compressed to minutes
So take what you can
Would I ever be enough for you?
No

There's no relief in this World
somehow we wound up here
Is there release in this World?
Inside out
I'm insincere

Look in my eyes
Do I look like I am here to hurt you?
I've never cared if you're a Capulet or an alien
There's no relief in this World
There's no release in this World

And those who know still won't talk
or interefere - I'm barely here
Forced to live out these days
This art is my escape

There's no relief in this World
so how'd we end up here?
Is there release in this World?
Inside out
I'm in sins here

Look in my eyes
Do I look like I am here to hurt you?
I've never cared if you're a Capulet or an alien
There's no relief in this World

Lyrics

When I gave all I could to exit this life and I've poured out my soul as I gazed in your eyes. All my faults lay before you, as no one repaired. I've been useless for months now, us orphans get scared. Found this shell in a graveyard, I held to the past, with a fist of dead flowers that were bloodied by glass, I was tired from heartache and curled on the ground. Tears are like makeup when no one's around. And the fog was so heavy I barely had breath, I was broken and hopeless, embracing my death, and your presence was noticed, I felt a collapse, your heart it was open, your hand crossed my back, you said calm, love calm. You are my angel, spread your wings, hold me close.

You held me in close, and wiped all my tears. Speaking peace to a heartache, you calmed all my fears, and you showed me compassion like I never knew, now I sleep in your arms as I pull close to you you say calm, love calm, you are my angel, spread your wings, hold me close.

I dreamt last night
that I was full of regret
that you didn't love me
that I felt like death
was a viable option
that I was sorry
to everyone I've crossed
to everyone I've hurt
to everyone I've lost
to everyone I've hurt

I dreamt last night
that I stood in your house
that years had been lost
that the tears had not been shed
from our eyes
that I was sorry
to everyone I've crossed
to everyone I've hurt
to everyone I've lost
to everyone I've hurt

The dream is in layers
(inside a dream that's not a dream inside a dream)

Hello my lover, it's been too long for words
When this gets to you then I'll know that you've got the news
I wanted to tell you but you weren't awake
The trouble I'll get in, so much is at stake

Everywhere but home
I'm ending the blackout, I don't care if I'm caught
Everywhere but home
I wanted to tell you but you weren't awake
The trouble I'll get in, so much is at stake
I'm ending the blackout, I don't care if I'm caught
It's hard to explain but I'll give it a shot

They've locked me up here on this station between
I can't see clearly but you know what I mean
I can't tell you all the things that I've done
But I'll send you this song from Mars Colony 1

Well I left you on Earth a year, six months to this day
and I'm aiming but miss you girl, you're planets away
The missions top secret but I'll tell what I can
yeah I may be a Martian now but I'm still your man

Do you remember that night in Maine, I grabbed at your hand?
and I froze up then blurted "make me an honest man!"
Well hold that ring tight and blow a kiss to the sky
Yeah you know you're my angel girl but don't try to fly

Here I know you're not here but baby 'we're not alone'
And that'll have to do since there's no promises home
When you look at the stars at night imagine my eyes
and the one's that are falling girl are tears of surprise

And I never thought I'd say this but I'm ready for kids
I know you'll make someone mommies girl and that's how it is
So remember there's life out there, we're like a million to one
as I send you this song from Mars Colony 1

Just an idea I had last night. I may put vocals over it sometime. All instruments performed by Yours Truly. Created using Adobe Audition 1.5 multi track session, FL Studio, and my Cort Acoustic Guitar. Lots of preset distortion used in Adobe. Created entirely on my PC at home in about an hour.

Lost and down, waiting for you to set me free.
I never knew you were there waiting just for me.
Okay lets try, okay lets take on our enemies.
Beating them down, forcing them all on their knees.

All this time, we've fought the force that makes us flee.
All this time, we've fought the force that makes us bleed.
All this time.

Where do we go, what do we do with all this strife?
We'll never give in, never give up - take our lives.
All this time, you thought that we could never be.
We'll show them all how this true love can really be.
All this time.

No Chat for me anymore, I guess I wasn't polite. So they banned my IP address from Matt's website. Well I like to meander, so I'll digress - I'm not a jackass or a narcissist.

But like a hard drug these things dont really last and like a hard heart there's things I cant get past not yet and like a freight train I can hear you leave it gives me goddam chills I can hardly breathe right now Now I can taste my dreams with a confident face and I can place my things in an organized space on stage I can leave this city when I play in the town I can meet my fans but youre not around to see Even though you'll probably hate me till' the end you were my friend before you knew you were my friend

Lyrics

Are you home, I want to see you, I believe you arent here with me, and I hope that you are, all this time that I fall behind. Are you home, Are you home? Cuz' I'm falling, this crawling's appaulling, Your heart is it freezing? My darling I need your forgiveness. Are we ending defending? Is this love pretending? My darling I'm needing to be forgiven. Are we there cuz' I'm sorry, forgive me for boring. Im trying to make you believe, forgive me.

Lyrics

I start along, under this cloud Now oil price dropped We'll get a two car garage Under this cloud I move by stealth When the stars align When the stars align to collide Such a beautiful thing Such a beautiful thing When our stars align. We can redefine love They'll say we can't do anything We can redefine trust Can't do anything Under this cloud I move by stealth When the stars align When the stars align to collide Such a beautiful thing Such a beautiful thing When our stars align.

Story

Guitar/Bass and Vocals written and performed by Adam Josh. Piano written and performed by Devin Rader of www.blackseptemberrecords.com The song is about the city I was born and raised in, and how a lot of the job markets are seasonal, resulting in massive lay-offs every year and the financial problems and depression that follow. Someone needs to invest in St.Catharines' economy BADLY.

Lyrics

Summers gone and Im waking to the cold of winter on my face. This city is so hard on us this time, but it's our place. Thawing snow and warmer skies bring us hope of better days. But this winters just been too much for me, I feel beaten-down in this space. This city chews me up This city spits me out For all that I have done Like a phantom Like a phantom Just look at this place Unfit for a ghost This is where we live

After everything is done, every song was for you After everthing is done, every scream, every line sung for you In the end, Im not a great writer sure In the end, Im not a great singer sure I know little of talent, but what I have given I've gave Is it less than I can? Is that pushing me on? Can we all please all? Am I writing to please? In the end, Im not a great writer sure In the end, Im not a great singer sure Chase away, haste the day to turn around and change our ways, face today with these mistakes, replace it all and start again In the end, Im not a great writer sure In the end, Im not a great singer sure After everything is done, every song was for you After everthing is done, every scream, every line sung for you

This is a demo version I recorded at my house.

Lyrics



In my life I've done things that I sure regret
I've been many places I shouldn't have been
I've cut you all out when I said you're cut-in
Stabbed at your back and absorbed all this sin


Forgotten the faces of those I have held
Losing their names, is that you? I can't tell
Holding my best to this memory that's aged
People like oceans where everything swims away

In my life
Drifting away
My life

In my life with my family some things have been forced
I come from a home broken up by divorce
When I was a young boy my parents divorced
My sister's divorced
And I've been divorced


I've been making the best of life falling apart
A decade of long road
A strip of my heart
A century of pavement
This heart-ache and pain
My words are like farewells on lips as they slip away

In my life
Drifting away
My life

In my life I've done things that I sure regret
I've been many places I shouldn't have been
I've cut you all out when I said you're cut-in
Stabbed at your back and absorbed all this sin

I looked up to you you didnt know but I guess my words are just Too Close to home too close to home I picture you, your'e leaning there on the bathroom sink - there's pills everywhere - A2J

A day goes by picture perfect. Tomorrow we go, escape this place. Sirens fade, they call my name. And if I fall, a week thats all. Sirens fade, and you are mine - its pircture perfect. And all my flaws, in you they're gone - its picture perfect. And all I miss is your kiss - its picture perfect. A month goes by and here we are. Develop you, develop me. Sirens fade, they call my name. And when I fall, a year thats all.

Lyrics

Going to work, fixate on time - passing by. Grease the machine, until there's no noise - just a sigh. Boredom's acute, anger slips out - from standing by. Hey let's make friends, you have nice clothes - mine, well... I try. Calibrate. I will. Hesitate my outbursts. Pissed off at work, fixate on time - passing by. Greased the machines, now there's no noise - just a sigh. Boredom's acute, rage has set in - from standing by. But hey, let's make friends, are you employed? Me, I try. Calibrate. I will. Hesitate my outbursts. Focus, be a human.

Life wasnt supposed to be like this - these wounded hands that craft a fate. They're tired of being awake, they're tired of being afraid. I complain, but I'm trying to fix it. Oh, I complain. But I am trying to fix it. But it seems that way, it seems I wait. Weakened hands, suffering. I complain, will this get worse when we collapse - suffering? I complain, but I am trying to fix it.

Took about 3 days to really finish this. At first I thought it wasnt worth recording...but, this recording here.... I was in Alysons room, and I have a little studio set up here for when Im over to visit...and I just thought Id record it as I was playing it to her for the first time..hence the screw up in the second verse..but, ya its raw, and I like it.

Lyrics

When your thoughts turn into code, when your solo - all alone, Im into you, Im robotic too. When you cant decipher your own mind. Theres passwords to open your eyes. But Im into you. We're not Machines. I do more then just exist. We're not machines, and life is more then this. I have a soul. Listen up and feel me bleed. I have my hopes, that mean more then this to me. We're not machines. And you're not made of metal. Your insides arent all just wires. But Im into you. But your thoughts turn into codes, life locks you in this mode.... But im into you. We're not Machines. I do more then just exist. We're not machines, and life is more then this. I have a soul. Listen up and feel me bleed. I have my hopes, that mean more then this to me. We're not machines.

Took a while to write this song, I spent lots of time figuring out consistancy in the lyrics, and story.

Lyrics

I had a dream where all my flaws were gone. But everyone died before I could show them all. It all slipped away, yeah all this was meaningless. See, I used to think what I did had effect, oh. Then the dream ends when 16 years have passed. My debts been wracked up and my hearts love has passed, oh passed away. Sleep jetisonned to coma. Hard to see paralyzed motives. And no one knows, and no one knows Im comatose.

back in 99 Brad and me lived together and we just jammed this one out. I dont have the tape anymore from when we recorded it, so I figured Id try and re-do it. The original is better, and you also get me saying the title somewhere during the song on the original. Oh well.

Lyrics by Adam. So much to say so little time for me, to explain to you the way I feel you only see things the way you want to see them. And it makes sense to you, all these things you do, youve got it all figured out while everyone is confused. How do you do it? In your mind Im just blind, youre right all of the time, If I think for myself I guess Im way out of line, Im not who you want. im SO SORRY, Im sorry. The killswitch is in my hand, sea the ocean and the land, all at once , its all away, all at once I can see your face incinerate, desecrate, there will be no one to alleviate me, Im blowing it all away, and IM SORRY. Im sorry.
