Track Name: The Separate Eye
Spread your wings
Before the flashing lights
A jewel in the sight
Of indecent eyes
Diaries opened
And the words torn out
Apertures knowing
Secrets and doubts

The camera finds a smile
The camera finds a frown
We can’t hide from ourselves
We just get used through it

Flash again like the crack of a whip
Who we are in a moment forever sticks
On a tight roll of gelatin
Our shapely lips
Indiscriminately kissed

The camera finds a smile
The camera finds a frown
We can’t hide from ourselves
We just get used through it

The camera finds a smile
The camera finds a frown
We can’t hide from ourselves
We just get used through it

The separate eye
We’re alive in its depictions
Of ourselves in color
Track Name: Swing the Club
For every reflex and garnered sense
There’s a test of our mental focus
Which side are you on?
There’s the wind and the calm

Which side are you on
Progress and logic or the pain?
That knee-jerk reaction format
Digs another grave
Which side were you on
When the wicked struck that day?
We should have been calm and known
That hate just rebounds hate

Does it matter the future’s sake?
With violent arms and violent trades
Effect to reset the cause
It’s like a schoolyard brawl
Does it matter the future’s sake?
With violent arms and violent trades
We keep swinging the club
WE KEEP SINGING THE CLUB

It felt so good, that cold reaction
Blasting back in childhood fashion
There’s the ole eye for eye
That breaks the ties
In the rise of demise
Its uncivilized
Keep swinging the club
Keep swinging the club
KEEP SWING THE CLUB
KEEP SWING THE CLUB
TO DEFEND YOUR RIGHTFUL CLAIM!
Track Name: My Great Disguise
One day when I’m blind
It will be just fine
One open eye my great disguise
One open eye

I dreamt that all my life was here
today with no tomorrow
I dreamt of an eternal light like a
blanket over daily sorrow
I changed the thoughts when they were dark,
I stayed sane
I woke with a bigger heart
I no longer fear the pain

One day when I’m blind
It will be just fine
One open eye my great disguise
One open eye

There is no other side
Just the test of time
The light inside, my state of mind
One open eye

My state of mind
A test of time
A source of life
The light inside
One open eye
Track Name: Jack of Hearts
Jack sang aloud
With bright smile and cheer
Performed his famous hat trick for the crowd

We drank and laughed
As Jack ordered rounds
With lovely arms she passes our drafts

Wink of eye by Jill
She reaches toward the tap
Her long lashes spying, a Jack of Hearts to kill

A Gentleman stoop
A weasel in the roost
The spying eyes of this girl
A magic lair for wicked acts
With sinful deeds, his will extract
A crime called Jill to be exact
Went up the hill to murder Jack

The day that Jill met Jack there was such charm in the mirror
The curve of her hips, her smiling lips
His focus and charismatic stride, he lost his breath
a shoulder slips from the dress
Now he’s a groom
Succumb thereafter
How does the pink skin bat an iris and grin
And tumble a man from proud on his peak?
Track Name: Jack of Sides
Wow!

What a sight what a sight he first sees her
Blushing bride like the onset of a fever

Holding tight holding tight she gets nearer
A handsome man and the project to please her

She demands she demands that he need her
She’ll roll the eyes and the trouble gets clearer

Walk the mile with a smile had it in him
A perfect stride ‘til the finger had bit him

Yeah she gets when he gets and she wants it
All the best ends in the bed when it’s started

Check the jack check the jack on both sides
There are twists to the love there are twists to the life

Wow!

Homicide, homicide it led into
A mastermind, yeah her talent continues

Casting call now select the winner
He was gunning for some pie and now she’s ready for the dinner
Give it up give it up there’s no fight
The daylight swoons lead right into the night

Luscious lips luscious lips he dips into
A rapid fire and the story continues

Yeah she gets when he gets and she wants it
All the best ends in the bed when it’s started

Check the jack check the jack on both sides
There are twists to the love there are twists to the life
Track Name: Addict
Dark by the bride of the permanent song
Wash the sight from my eyes as the habit grows strong
Wait for my friends I’ve been lost when they’re gone
Addiction, I have it- to feel I belong

The lost find their cause as they forward along
With words of the times and an endless resolve
They ask of themselves have the will to move on
In the social addiction, this madness belongs

Don’t be afraid to be who you are
It’s your voice in this world
It’s your choice to move on

There’s life in your fiction
The lines how you’re drawn
Define satisfaction
With fingers and palms

To find yourself
You have to insist
The old you that was
No longer exists
Track Name: Criminals
Does this intellect save you?
In the spectral broadcast confusion
Have we all agreed?
That every voice, the perfect choice
The static masses
Reek of policy

The shouts grow louder
As opinions pour in
Interpreted choice the national voice
Brought vengeance to trial
As the public speaks its need

We’re all criminals
Happy to have our say
Lucky duck criminals
Loving every day

Do you believe we can catch
The collection of massive thought
The millions speak their minds
Why should it be the outcome it seems
A coffin so often
That no longer peace we need

Freed tongues leak new speak
And preach their ideals
Like creationists plead for demise
Our gossip breeds war machines
in the modern age we do best
For our kind

We’re all criminals
Happy to have our say
Lucky duck criminals
Loving every day
