HOURGLASS LYRICS

 

FAT MAN STOMP 

 

I’ll pour a drink, you take a sip of my reality now.

That prescriptions are poisons and they have their reasons -- to give and to allow.

 

Oh, bride-to-be, well tell me you’re sorrows, tomorrow you’ll never know.

With a hint of mint, club soda, Europa, R2… you’re good to go.

 

I'll smile and nod, you'll love the facade, and, by the way, Vitamin K.

It's the remedy of necessity, for the wife and the kids and the job.

 

You’re belly up,  

Drank, like a fish, from the well.

 

I can feel it kicking in,

Last call, last call, last call.

 

The hour has come, my lady, 

Spin the chamber, name your caliber of grain.

The hour has come, my Penny, 

Rimmed in gunpowder and lost this side of sane. 

We're flippin' the sign now, baby, 

Don't have to go home, but ya can't stay here. 

The hour has come, my lady, 

Sink and sigh but save a bullet for the rye. 

 

The hour has come...

 

You toil you try -- well you’re too nice of a guy -- ’n yes, I know the cure.

A twist of lime, save a bullet of rye, coke-a-cola, and H dots the “i.”

 

Your daddy was mean, so forget what you’ve seen, an bathe in grenadine.

With an ounce of courage, I'll bury the cherry 'til change bubbles up from her thighs.

 

Hey, Okay, you're twenty-one, so have a shot laced with 25.

I’m a makeshift chemist, an abstract polemist, selling freebases, acids, and wines.

 

You’re belly up,

Drank, like a fish, from the well.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

PINK CROSS

 

A dance of living canvases,

Fear-filled, frayed orifices,

The Golden Ass of classlessness.

A shot of grain and gun powder,

Drowns out hidden costs of fame,

Of bare angels that fall from grace.

 

Cause it's a long shot, but now I'll speak my mind,

You took a fist fuck, the kind you can't deny,

And for the cash grab - for the $9.95,

You made a name, and what's yours is now mine.

It was a long shot, and now you're caught in a bind,

Cause it's a free flow, until the day you die,

But 'til the time comes, 'til the white knight is blind,

Your past may be colored but tomorrow is not mine.

 

Lights, camera, action 

Take it, love it, leave it, break it, fake it, film it.

Lights, camera, action

Stuff it, pack it, grab it, suck it, eat it, film it.

 

Pound it, lick it, flick it, fuck it, film it.

 

A neon pink cross saves the day,

Re-solves all ya guilt away,

Promising that you’ll be saved.

 

A shot of grain and gun powder,

Drowns out hidden costs of fame,

Of bare angels that fall from grace.

 

‘Cause it’s a scapegoat when ya eat out inside,

From all the DP, all the BS you’ve tried,

Ya had to drip dry, to endorse the lie,

But on the inside – what’s yours is mine.

So try the straight lace, and keep a straight face,

But remember that you’re working for the same place,

Ya need to pay more, ya need the blood wine.

But remember when ya singin’, what’s yours is not mine.

 

Lights, camera, action

Take it, love it, leave it, break it, fake it, film it.

Lights, camera, action

Stuff it, pack it, grab it, suck it, eat it, film it.

 

Pound that shit, lick it, flick it, fuck it, film it.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

NOCE TE IPSUM

 

 

Runnin' away from the future's past history,

Havin' a day with blatant hypocrisy,

Livin' a life of bored mediocrity,

Find no meanin' from a broke religiosity.

 

But I'm so sick, a-choo!

I'm so sick of you.

 

Givin' it up for Miss Understanding now,

Havin' a taste of what we'd wished we couldn't know, pal.

Answers inflate to a drunk man born again, falling asleep because God couldn't answer him.

 

Fed up with the show,

Company? No!

Get your ass up, then do what you're sayin': Sell out, buy in - Don't Delay!

Learn. Time to grow. Make up the show.

Making it all a little more interesting,

Get out the fight once your ass gets reamed.

 

Fed up with the show,

Company? No!

Get your ass up, then do what you're sayin': Sell out, buy in - Don't Delay!

Learn. Time to grow. Let it all go!

Accept the mind that you cannot know,

Hands up. Stand up. Ready? Go!

 

Sometimes I believe,

That most live but to breed.

Sometimes we are free,

But most days we all pay.

 

Havin' a day from the pop-norm, stigma-truth.

Maybe you'll wish someday I'd gone through with my coup.

Until the time comes I guess I'm out, not born again.

Good luck in the norm, it'll never suit you best, my friend.

 

Ba-da! Ba-da! Ba derpa derpa da!

 

So I'm runnin' away from the future's past history. 

Havin' a day with blatant hypocrisy.

The legend amounts to a drunk man born again,

Falling asleep because God didn't answer him.

 

Fed up with the show,

Company? No!

Get your ass up, then do what you're sayin': Sell out, buy in - Don't Delay!

Learn. Time to grow. Make up the show.

Make it all a little more interesting,

but get out the fight once your ass gets reamed.

 

Fed up with the show,

Company? No!

Get your ass up, then do what you're sayin': Sell out, buy in - Don't Delay!

Learn. Time to grow. Let it all go!

Accept the mind, forgive the crime,

Hands up. Stand up. One more time:

 

Sometimes I believe,

Most live but to breed.

Some days we are free,

Most times we all pay.

Some days we are free,

but most days we all pay.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

 

DRINK TIL YOU DIE

 

Yeah, here we go. This sounds like a drinkin' song.

 

Talk is cheap, so I'll be brief

I'll tell ya 'bout my girl

She took me to the cleaners, but I couldn't foot the bill

She slept for free, but not with me

She hung around several others

And her belly grew, And I never knew

The child he was a bit colored

 

So, let's drink til we die

Don't ask me why, 'cause I'll lie

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why, 'cause I'll lie

Until the day my heart won't beat

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why. Why can't I?

 

Talk is cheap, so I'll be brief

I'll tell ya 'bout my girl

She stole my heart, that's just a start she stole my wallet too

Got's myself a lawyer, and her handsome price was large

But when she gotta yacking, well, I swear she parched the stars

 

So, let's drink til you're die

Don't ask me why, 'cause I'll lie

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why, 'cause I'll lie

Until the day my heart won't 

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why. Why can't I?

 

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why. Why can't I?

Drink until we're dry

Don't ask me why, 'cause I'll lie

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

GUNNIN'

 

Are you up in the air? Or don't really care?

Well, I got a cure.

But I gotta go home. 

Stay outta the heat. Don't look under the bed.

You can never be sure.

So I gotta go home.

 

With a

Knock. Knock. Knock.

Yeah, with a

Knock. Knock. Knock.

You're heading home.

 

I still surprise myself. And I'm gunnin' for you.

I found the way of the One. And now I'm playing God.

 

It's all in the book. But don't read the words.

Let me be your guide.

But first I gotta go home.

 

With a

Knock. Knock. Knock.

Yeah, with a

Knock. Knock. Knock.

You're heading home.

 

I still surprise myself. And I'm gunnin' for you.

I found the way of the One. But I can't hear a thing.

 

Don't feel bad. It's dumbed down.

But if the sound flows freely, sing.

And take wing.

And if your views are such then pray that heart out.

 

I will return.

But I gotta go take a -

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

THE FALL

 

(Good Luck!)

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

NO THING

 

I sought my soul, but found no thing.

I sold my soul, to keep my sanity.

You serve your shit, gold plates of ease.

They lap your piss, from the bowels of insanity.

 

They're gonna fade away,

Times will change,

so just walk away.

 

I sought my soul, but found no thing.

I sold my soul, to keep my sanity.

 

They're gonna fade away,

Times will change,

They're gonna g0 away,

God will fade away

so just walk away.

 

I sought my soul, but found no thing.

I sold my soul, to keep my sanity.

They're gonna fade away,

Times will change,

They're gonna g0 away,

God will fade away

so just walk away.

THE KRAKIN

 

Dependent on this prison
A solace I despise
Insecurities hidden
And bottled up behind
My eyes are pane-less windows
My breath, soullessly hollow
The truth, so hard to swallow
Should’ve never crossed that line

 

I’d ask to be forgiven
I’m out of second tries
Keep insecurities hidden
And bottled up behind
My hands callous and shaking
I feel the silence breaking
Let loose the kraken waking
He’ll destroy the life he finds

They always say the...
Glass is greener on the other side 
A desperate monster
Jealous and green eyed 
Insatiable hunger
Devoured what I thought was mine

 

Dependent on your poison
An addict for your lies
Secrets remain unspoken 
And bottled up behind
My eyes are painless windows
My breath soullessly hollow
A truth so hard to swallow
Should've never crossed that line
Keep insecurities hidden
Keep insecurities hidden
Asylum in medicine
For a little piece of mind

 

They always say the...
Glass is greener on the other side 
A desperate monster
Jealous and green eyed

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

FOR YOU

 

I've been gone for many, many days. 

Things won't turn around. 

I've had hopes and many, many dreams. 

Guess it's my time to move on.

 

For you.

 

I've been part of many, many crimes. 

Things just haven't been right. 

I've worked hard and for many years to come. 

Guess now I'll turn out the light.

 

For you.
