LYRICS

IMPULSES ©

I felt the surge as you passed on by. Electrified when you locked my eye 

B’voltage flowed just an hour before. With a girl I couldn’t ignore.

Don’t repent it was just a flinch. An uncontrolled spasmodic twitch

I got it all now under control. But the memory stays…stays….too long…

 

I’ve always longed for instant rewards. Sensations just so hard to ignore

But what you act on must reveal. What your soul holds dear or must repeal

 

I miss you every single day

But there’s a trust I can’t betray

And so I’ll sing this song again and hope it all begins to fade

 

I felt the surge as you passed on by. Electrified when you locked my eye

B’voltage flowed just an hour before. With a girl I couldn’t ignore

 

Were it mine to do again

To play a game no one can win

Pray to God He’d let me

Walk away from the shattered masquerade

 

TEST OF TIME ©

She was a brilliant star

and for a moment she ruled the sky

I was like the sea,

her light and love reflect in me

 

Capture a piece if time

her fleeting soul won't always shine

Still find my restless peace

in knowing that the light was mine

What's your hangup with the permanent

My emotions can be measured in a line

I'm not buying all this evidence

If its love it will  stand the test of time

If its love it will  stand the test of time.

If its love it will  stand the test of time.

She was a brilliant star

and for a moment she ruled the sky

I was like the sea,

her light and love reflect in me

MONSTERS ON MAPLE STREET ©

terrorize your neighbor till he's wrong

spoon feed paranoia into the mouths of our own

once we drank scotch - over a game - of bridge

now we point fingers in fear and disgrace

the monsters - are due on - maple street

the monsters - are due on - maple street

“a witch hunt for the wizards” the men on the hill say

i can't recall what this place was like yesterday

what they leave behind we’ll call a draft

a protocol for mutiny and our enslavement

 

the monsters - are due on - maple street

the monsters - are due on - maple street

the enemy turned inward becomes me

the monsters - are due on - maple street

(CAN'T SEE) YOUR FACE ©

It’s taken all my life to reach today

And keep my past enchained in a twisted, endless maze

But flash of memory smell and I get off script

The thoughts come rushing in and I stand alone and stripped

(Still within your grip, completely unequipped)

 

Returning to that time is more than I can take

The love I held for you soon blisters into hate

Every detail stark and nothing is erased

Remember everything but I just can’t see your face

(A void and empty space, what was is now replaced)

Stagger backwards now my mind begins to reel

And every detail I no longer can conceal

Your voice your touch your taste your shape I that black dress

Brings me to my knees and leads me to confess

No longer can repress, utterly obsessed
