Overkill — April 10, 2012

Overkill

I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know WE’LL be alright

Perhaps its just imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Alone between the sheets
Only brings exasperation
It’s time to walk the streets
Smell the desperation

At least there’s pretty lights
And though there’s little variation
It nullifies the night
From overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
COME BACK ANOTHER DAY

I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
THAT I know will be alright
It’s just overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night, my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

From the great “Men at Work” !

Career of Evil – BOC — April 5, 2012

Career of Evil – BOC

I plot your rubric scarab,
I steal your satellite
I want your wife to be my
Baby tonight, baby tonight

I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil

Pay me I’ll be your surgeon
I’d like to pick your brain
Capture you inject you
Leave you kneeling in the rain
Kneeling in the rain

I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil

I’d like your blue eyed horseshoe,
I’d like your emerald horny toad
I’d like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road

And then I’d spend your ransom money,
But still I’d keep your sheep
I’d peel the mask you’re wearing,
And then rob you of your sleep
Rob you of your sleep

I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil

One of the best lyrics of 1974. Blue Oyster Cult. Career of Evil – Secret treaties.

Deja-Vu — March 19, 2012

Deja-Vu

When you see familiar faces,
But you don’t remember where they’re from,
Could you be wrong?
When you’ve been particular places,
That you know you’ve never been before,
Can you be sure?
‘Cause you know this has happened before,
And you know that this moment in time is for real,
And you know when you feel Deja vu.

Chorus:
Feel like I’ve been here before,
Feel like I’ve been here before.

Ever had a conversation,
That you realize you’ve had before,
Isn’t it strange?
Have you ever talked to someone,
And you feel you know what’s coming next?
It feels pre-arranged.
‘Cause you know that you’ve heard it before,
And you feel that this moment in time is for real,
‘Cause you know when you feel deja-vu.

The Writ —

The Writ

he way I feel is the way I am I wished I’d walked before I started to run to you Just to you What kind of people do you think we are? Another joker who’s a rock ‘n’ roll star for you Just for you, The fateful image of another man The endless ocean of emotion I swam for you Yeah for you Your son Chip was layin’ down on the floor I wish the bullet entered my writing wall with you Yeah with you Are you metal? Are you man? You’ve changed a lot since you began Yeah began Ladies digging gold from you Will they still dig now you’re through Yea you’re through You bought and sold me with your lying words The voices in the dark that you never heard came through Yeah, came through Your fallen phalic got dismembered ‘n god A poisoned father with his poisonous his son that’s you Yeah that’s you I beg you please don’t let it get any worse The anger I once had has turned to a curse on you Yeah curse you All of the promises that never came true You’re gonna get what is coming to you that’s due Ah that’s due.  Are you Satan? Are you man? You’ve changed a lot since it began It began Vultures sucking gold from you Will they still suck now you’re through? (Cats… Rats…) The search is on so you just better run And find yourself another way Rob the dead they don’t feel a thing Keep the living for another day (Rats… Rat…) You are nonentity, you have no destiny You are a figment of a thing unknown A mantle picture of a stolen soul A fornication of your golden throne A smiling face it means the world to me, yeah So tired of sadness and of misery, yeah My life it started some time ago Where it will end I don’t know I thought I was so good I thought I was far I feel my world’s been torn apart But everything is gonna work out fine, yeah If it don’t I think I’ll lose my mind, yeah I know I know I know Yeah yeah I know Listen to me while I sing this song You might just think the words are wrong Too many people advising me But they don’t know what my eyes see But everything is gonna work out fine, yeah If it don’t I feel I’ll blow my mind, yeah!!

Eye in the sky — September 19, 2011

Eye in the sky

Don’t think sorry’s easily said
Don’t try turning tables instead
You’ve taken lots of chances before
But I ain’t gonna give any more
Don’t ask me
That’s how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you’re thinkin’

Don’t say words you’re gonna regret
Don’t let the fire rush to your head
I’ve heard the accusation before
And I ain’t gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

(chorus)
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you, I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools, I can cheat you blind
And I don’t need to see any more to know that
I can read your mind (looking at you)
I can read your mind (looking at you)
I can read your mind (looking at you)
I can read your mind

Don’t leave false illusions behind
Don’t cry, I ain’t changing my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain’t gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while
all of the signs are deceiving
