1. Entropy

Writhing, churning
Like a tornado
Black holeís spiral gravity
Cataclysmic forces take control
Erupt with violent energy
Hurricane lurks in the dark expanse
Disintegration in its wake

Have you ever seen
Lightning coursing straight?
Have you ever seen
Two waves exactly the same?
Can you feel the change?

Have you ever seen
Vinegar turn to wine?
Have you ever seen
Vultures waiting in line?
Have you ever seen
The downward spiral of life?

Try to remember - Hindenburgís demise
Try to imagine - death without decay
Go ahead now try to remember
Just one perfect day

Rust will form on stainless steel
Mutant virus kills vaccine
People so often disagree
Have you ever met Mr. Murphy?
back



Have you ever realized
The briefest pause in time?
Have you ever visualized
A world with no surprise?
Often life hangs by a thread
But your handís not on the string
Just one slip, one push away
The rock rolls over the edge




2. The Jester

In the waking hour
I hear the Jesterís song
Everything Iíve dreamed of
It brings my spirit home

He can take your sadness
And turn it into a dream
He can take all the madness
And let it out in a scream
He can take your suffering
And wash away all your tears
He can take what youíre hiding
And bring it out in the clear

The stillness of the morning
The breath of days gone by
Awakened from a restless sleep
He hears the childrenís cries
The children gasp in wonder
As the jester holds their gaze
He wields magic and illusion
To bewilder and amaze

With a broken smile
And an empty heart
He will make you
Laugh out loud
But the emptiness
That his heart now feels
Makes him cower
back


From the crowd

A Jester in the waking hour
Of innocence
A fool who feeds on
Laughter from the heart

Tossing, turning
Twisting, burning
Wasted years in the Jesterís life
A modern day Moses
Leads you to the Promised Land
Just a spiritual illusion
Left with nothing in his hands
The Jester on the outside
Hides a tearful soul
And with every passing moment
He seems to lose control

As the permanent midnight
Paints the evening sky
And the darkness falls over you
He will lead you to sunlight
He will promise no fear
When it seems there is
Nothing left you can do
A jester in the waking hour
Of innocence
A fool who feeds on
Laughter from the heart

Can you feel the sadness?
Can you feel the madness?
Donít believe the Jester




3. Haunted

I listen to myself sometimes
And recall the things Iíve done
These memories
They plague me now
I struggle with my actions
These memories, have I harmed anyone?
But Iím supposed to know

Haunted by the memories
Haunted by the pain
Guilt is such a wasteful
Use of my mind
Haunted by the words
By the person I betrayed
I canít believe that I was so callous that day

It withers me
My memory churns
The past it looms
And it still burns
Like skeletons
Alive and well
In the closet, ringing the bell
Now if I can learn
From things I want to forget
I might rid myself
Of the acts that I regret
To hold on to the things
Iím lucky to have
Given what Iíve done
back


That couldíve been the thing
That brought it all
Crashing down....
Crashing down on me!

I will soon forget
All that I remember
If only to grasp a thought
Of one of my better days

Triumphant I sing
To all who will listen
They said Iíd be the one
Who wouldnít make the grade
Well look at me now
Not how I used to be
I can look ahead
Or can I?




4. E-Killer

Scream
but no one hears you
in this cyber-world
A universe
of anonymous contact
where time and place are blurred
Dream
of a new frontier
once free for all to roam
but the evil
in these intelligent fools
couldnít leave well enough alone

Now
thanks to you
the G-man gets involved
And our freedom,
our new reality
continues to de-evolve
See
look what youíve done
Gave them a reason
to subvert the innocent
I know the government
wanted this chance
to censor us from this latest romance

e-killer, e-killer
unseen eyes
e-killer, e-killer
back


computer genocide

Freak
Cyber Typhoid Mary
Think your jokeís benign
Download spreads
The viral e-disease
A thousand Megs of dynamite
Speak
About the web it was
The good it could have done
So what if you caused
A little nuclear war?
At least you had your fun

e-killer, e-killer
unseen eyes
e-killer, e-killer
demon in childís guise
e-killer, e-killer
seals his demise
e-killer, e-killer
computer genocide




5. Arrhythmia




6. Seven Deadly Sins

Donít fear the dark
Donít fear the thunder
Donít fear the silence
Nor the spirits of the dead
Instead fear me
For I am Avarice
I am Deceipt
And Iím just around the bend

Theyíre in your neighbor
Theyíre in your best friend
Theyíre in the hearts and minds
Of those you though you knew
You canít escape them
Theyíre showing up everywhere
The temptation we all fear
Lies just ahead

These deadly sins
Though I donít consider them friends
I still had to see them today
Trusting others seems so risky
I cower among them
Seeking shelter from their moral decay

They call your name
They say follow me
Donít be a fool
Donít you dare
They say they care
back


They say trust me
Donít believe their lies

The sick minds we harbor
Make news every day
Propaganda machine
Demands we see the worst
Why are the good so bad for TV
While the Seven Deadly Sins
Get the airplay?




7. White Stones

Can you believe?
Why canít you see
the pain in their eyes,
the horrors in their lives?
Stones in the meadow
lined up row by row
as far as the I eye can see
reaching out for you

The pictures in my mind
are all that I have left
a scene of what Iíve seen
A tear becomes a smile
I hold these white stones in my hands
I hear them to talk to me
Or is it just a dream?
A dream within a dream

Memories of the past
racing through my head
the last time that I saw your eyes
is etched upon my mind
Tears of sorrow
Tears of pain
Streaming down my face again
I long not to forget
these memories I have of you

The pictures in my mind
are all that I have left
back


a scene of what Iíve seen
A tear becomes a smile
I hold these white stones in my hands
I hear them to talk to me
Or is it just a dream?
Could this be a dream?

Fading pictures on the wall
burn down to my soul
Sometimes it seems as if
theyíre calling out my name
Just like the endless fields of stone
like a sea of sorrow
I long not to forget
these memories I have of you




8. Undone

Oh wonít you tell me
How this came to be
Heís hurting you and youíre hurting me
I wish I could pick up these broken pieces
Hold them in my hands for you to see
Erase this line in the sand
And end this insanity

Everyone comes to falter
Thatís our Achilles heel
But when you cease to forgive me
Thatís when you cease to feel
Who will be there to hold you
When you come undone?

Wash your hands in the water
But they never come clean
With nerves of steel
Your battles are won
When the smoke has cleared
And your day is done
Never gonna feel your heart as one
Who will be there to hold you
When you come undone?

Back to the past
It dictates the future
These memories of life
Were never meant to hurt you
You can lead him to your waters
back


But you canít make him drink!

Wash your hands in the water
But the water turns red
With nerves of steel
Your battles are won
When the smoke has cleared
And the damage done
Will you ever feel your heart as one?
Look at what youíve become
Now thereís no turning back
