Track Name: Monsters Under My Eyelids
Top of my head
Down to my feet
Just two eyes to see me through
The mana it flows
Through my hands
The distant skies
See what I feel
Alive

Myriad of thoughts
Flowing about my head
Just can't stop
Til I catch my breath
In my heart
Hold my desire
But dont expect happiness

A lie they told you
A lie they sold you

Roll me another cigarette
Just can't stop
Though it hurts my throat
Another day
Another chance to die
Rip me up
See inside my head
Come inside

As a matter of course
As a matter of fact
Destiny's written up a receipt
Wasnt fun, no only work
Find your way
Through those eyes

Those eyes
They control you
Those eyes
They control you

The monsters under my eyelids as I sleep
I took too much so they run my head
I tried to climb out but I'm in too deep
But I tried so hard to see me through

Top of my head down to my feet
Just two eyes to see me through
Track Name: Poison-into-Medicine
Ive been down so many times
know where im coming from
like a ship getting tossed inside a maelstrom
like a mat at the door worn out my welcome
and im tattered and frayed
I been on and off the bottle like it was the teat
wasting away til im all bones no meat
burnt out and melting down into my seat
i didn't know how the game was played
now im doing revolution want my victory
emancipate myself from mental slavery
changing right now its an emergency
got no time left to be afraid

poison into medicine
work on my heart again reach out to a friend
poison into medicine
got no time to waste I was born to win
born to win
born to
born to win
born to win

Im sorry my friend all apologies
sometimes I feel like im my own worst enemy
disregarded you after you nurtured me
and it makes no sense at all
drew party lines and mounted my defense
strung out on anger and on ignorance
revolted hard against my common sense
and so began the fall
Now its many in body but one in mind
no longer being led by the blind
turns out inner peace aint really hard to find
but only if you try

poison into medicine
work on my heart again reach out to a friend
poison into medicine
got no time to waste I was born to win
born to win
born to
born to win
born to win
Track Name: In Your Skin
When I can level with your eyes
See a dream that shivers me
The revolution almost died
But we breathed it sympathy
I crossed you once in metaphor
And made away with what looks grab
You smiled, knowing I was dim
Welcome me home again
Again
In your skin
In your skin
In your skin
In your skin

And I deluded truth again
Just to seem unaffected and cool
But I just want to be your friend
But I'm afraid you'll act so cruel
But smiles help to reassure
When seas of doubt toss you ashore
Stranded shivering and alone
Must you really be alone

In your skin
In your skin
In your skin
In your skin

The wistful jaded and the bored
Darling dreams of nevermore
And all your longing is for naught
Serrated signs show what you got
Connection that you hunger for
The quiet womb from where youre torn
Nesting dolls that we all are
All along conceals a star

In your skin
In your skin
In your skin
In your skin
In your skin
Track Name: Femme Fatale
Here she comes
youd better watch your step
shes going to break your heart in two
its true
its not hard to realize
just look into her false colored eyes
shell pick you up just to bring you down
what a clown

cause everybody knows
the things she does to please
shes just a little tease
see the way she talk
hear the way she talks

youre written in her book
youre #47 have a look
shell make you smile to see you frown
little boy shes from the street
before you start youre already beat
she's going to play you for a fool
its true

cause everybody knows
the things she does to please
shes just a little tease
see the way she talk
hear the way she talks
Track Name: One more cup of coffee
Your breath is sweet and weak
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself
You've never learned to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.
