Thoughts in the shape of words.

Savior In White

Psychiatrist ward
Cold and grey
My mind is out of control
On this rainy day

Concrete waiting room
A vending machine there
And I’m about to explode
In this old wooden chair

Waiting all night for some words
Waiting all night to be heard

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Hours they pass
The night’s settlin’ in
Walking in circles
A cup of coffee to drink

Try and understand
I’m as low as you can get
I’m just looking for some assistance
Finishing off my last cigarette

Waiting all night so please
Waiting to get some release

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

This is my last outpost
And no one should feel this way
The department of joy is closed
Lend a hand if you may

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Can’t take it anymore
I’m stranded on a distant shore
Can’t stand the waiting for sure
Just can’t take this anymore

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Lost Soul

There’s a dying voice within me
Slowly fading away
I once had so many dreams
But now this world seems gray

I don’t know if to cry
To this dull little world of mine
It once began to come alive
Now I’m just wasting my time

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

Everyday I wake up
Walk outside, try to find my role
I stare down this empty cup
This treacherous black hole

I’m constantly falling
Out of touch with reality
And everybody’s talking
Just ruins my sanity

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

I’m just trying to feel
Anything except for this pain
Anything but incomplete
Trying to smile again

Well I never did know
This state of mind would exist here
It’s so hard to let go of
Both your dreams and your fears

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

You Got To Move Those Feet Around

I’m on a quest, walking this thin line
I can’t rest until I’ve found where love is kind
I hear no one calling
Things happen to me without a warning
If you’re down and out
Out of luck
Starting to drown
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

I drove in to another dead end street
Took another chance but it wasn’t very sweet
When can this change for me
How could I ever feel complete
Completely bound
Safe and Sound
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

You can always start again but you can’t repeat the past
Time has moved on and it’s never coming back
These feelings in me are driving me to tears
I can’t turn them off cause they’re surrounded by fears
Fears of a world that’s unknown
Tells me I gotta move my feet around

Suddenly you’re on my mind
I can’t get you out if I tried
I’ve urged so long for some contact
Biding my time to get back
Waiting’s fine
‘til you reach the line
When you’re so fuckin’ low
You gotta act
Face yourself and the facts
Put on your shoes
Kick off your blues
Turn everything upside down
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

I Should Never Have Treated You So

How can
I try
To answer for
Right now
All of those things I said

Just happened
To be
A little too
Set free
When I came ’round that day

Hear my lone confession
Now that I’m-a feeling blue
Sometimes I think back at those times
When our love were true

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I’ve got to change you know
From this new kind of low
I should never have treated you so

No, it was not
The time
For speaking my
Mind
With not a nice word to lend

You know
Even though
I never wanted you
To go
Every story must end

In my lone confession
In every single word
There falls a shroud of silence
Where echoes once were heard

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I hope that you can forgive me
I can’t let it go
I should never have treated you so
