about

I mean this started it all for me. I was really going wild starting with this album. It's based on a real guy, Jack Webber. However, I've added much more to his story and made it more personal. Also, all the lyrics go together as one poem. They can be read backwards, too. It's supposed to go on forever. Also uncomfortable for me to listen to anymore, but not as much as "Huh?". That album makes me literally sick.

Track Name: Rechance 1
As far out of reach as one can go
From some smoldered starlight, to sleep tight and start right
Above solid ground. I'm gaining insight
And she follows me. We lock arms to keep all our lies
With my head. Happy mediums light up the sky
As words fall from the Black Cloud
I think I've finally figured you out
I know we were young, I said, you'd let me either down or drown
But you were all I had. We had to grow slowly for the road.
Take whatever is filling your mind
This time, my dear, is the last to
Be alone, be alone
Track Name: Nothing About Abo
How about another turning point for us to
Walk for miles until I met you
To see that face within the dream; I'd
Purify the lack of time just to try
To keep that voice alive. Oh
You can show me just how
We walk, we talk, you still say
"I hear your steps above me now that
I'm burning for the sake of burning."
An attempt can only multiply while
Trying to keep that voice alive
Breathe, Oh I wish that I was
Without desire; I'd love to
Feel empty; An empty promise:
You'll never love again.
Track Name: Bridge Walking
And you're off into the light
Good-good bye oh sweet,sweet strife
You're lovely lifeless body sleeps under the bridge
And I pass through
For the sight of you
Carry me now in your unrestraint
She stands out to the faint
Breeze by, defeat the lie that
It's time to run, but she says don't
Even you know not to stop
So why be gone when
All that's left
Is your smile
Track Name: Materialization (To Someone Else)
You've gone away thief in the night
Face of pearls, pearls of life
Please don't stay; even so you are
The Spring of Springs and Prince of Price
All the same, all the same are
The chances of hope that you hide in your Kingdom are
The laughters of you from the tongue of above or
A calming, sudden hand can bring her back, can bring me back
You just materialize;
I'll take the lies
You've closed your eyes to your other life
I'll leave for the best of us all
For one chance to fall into your arms
Track Name: Midlife Marks The End
I'm so low
You were nice to know
You were nice to know
You were nice to know
The sky still shakes where you stood
It shakes where you stood
I'll escape for good
I'll escape for good
I'm so low
You were nice to know
You were nice to know
You're nice to know
You're nice to know
You're nice to know
Track Name: Bridge Walking Too
You went slow out the door
What am I for anymore?
She's no life saver, just some thoughts after thoughts
I want to drown in January, the ice above never melting
To calm you down by February. Your loose chains are tightenedto me now
All the roses, 26 for you to the ends of the world
I'd love to return
Your green skin brings out the best of you
Your whispers are all I have left of you
I hope you saved a place for me
Forget the cold, you're always welcoming
Take a break until February. You'll be same never happy
Read through the back of my head with you plasmic brain
Track Name: Sky Quirk
You're in the midst of us all now
They've tied the strings. I'm settled down now
Oh voice, oh voice of Black Cloud
Hear him now. Hear him cry out
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
You never roar, but it's just so sweet
In my ear, breathe eternity
In my ear, breathe eternity
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Down we go
Break the horizon then
Open up the fields of cloud
Centerfold, you're not standing there
You're falling out of reach
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh the sky is shaking
Oh my feet are aching
There's nothing worth searching for
Track Name: Words I Believe In
Even vultures cry out to Him above
And tambourines proclaim God is love
The trumpets aim for the skies
The words I believe in, the words I believe in die.
You'll wish me well in due time
I've search and I've searched and
She is mine
I'm never stepping towards the light.
The words I believe in, the words I believe in die.
Do as I do and not as I say
Don't live in the Ozone
Don't live in the Ozone
Don't live in the Ozone
You're shaking and breaking the dark
I'm escaping reality and falling apart
As trumpets aim for the skies
The words I believe in, the words I believe in die.
Track Name: Rechance 2
And it starts with a shock
One wrong turn; seconds stop
Kiss the ground; only take
Your pretty clothes to the grave but
Sure you've lost all
Your bandages but you can only say
"I'm only waiting to take off
I'm only waiting to run."
Bring your holy ghost
And I'll bring you
Just give me one clean cut
I've traded off the best
Forgive me
Forgive me
Off and off with our heads
That seem to root to our chests then go
Out of mouths, words like flies.
They only matter when we fall
It wouldn't take anything for
I'll see you.
Just give me one more evening and
I'll bring you
Forgive me
Forgive me
Oh take me
