NO ESCAPE


THERE IS NO ESCAPE, THERE’S NO WINDOW, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, NOWHERE TO GO, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, I SEE IT ON THE NEWS, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, HEADS ARE ROLLING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, THE WEATHER’S FRIGHTENING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, SKYSCRAPERS, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, MACHINES MAKING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, THE PHONE’S CALLING ME, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, FROM WHAT YOU’RE DRINKING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, EXPENSIVE LIVING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, HEALTH FIXATIONS, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, WE’RE ALL UGLY, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, PLAN THEIR FUTURE, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, THEY SPENT YOUR SAVINGS,
THERE IS NO ESCAPE, TO LINE THEIR POCKETS, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, JUST DO ONE THING, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, GO AND LIVE IT, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, GO AND FEEL IT, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, JUST GO AND LIVE IT, THERE IS NO ESCAPE, NO NO NO, THE FUTURE IS NOTHING JUST LONG GONE FORGOTTEN, WE’RE LIVING IN HIDING ALL WAITING IN SILENCE, WHICH WAY ARE WE FACING? THIS COLD LIFE IS BLINDED, THERE’S NOTHING. ALL BROKEN. THERE IS NO ESCAPE

NATURE REGULATE

THIS IS WHAT I THOUGHT TODAY AS I’M LAYING LOOKING UP, THE THOUGHTS OF MY PAST SWIM DEEP, WITH THE SHARKS THAT WAIT FOR ME, ARMIES OF TRUTH WHERE HAVE YOU GONE? , THE WORDS WANTED ON THEIR HEADS, LIES PAY QUICK TO SHUT YOU UP, QUIETNESS TILL DEATH YOU PART, THE BEAST RUNS WILD THROUGH THIS TOWN, WHERE I LIVE HAS FALLEN DOWN, THE PREACHER’S DRUNK AND HAVE LONG GONE, WE ARE TRAPPED IN A BOX, AM I THE ONLY ONE?, TRYING TO FIGURE A WAY OUT TO FIND MY WAY OUT, NATURE REGULATE, IS THERE A CALL CENTRE FOR CHOICE?, FOR DECISIONS BEING MADE, BECAUSE I HAVE NO SAY ON THE WAY THINGS RUN TODAY, AND THE CAT IS FAT WITH BREATH OF HELL, AND THE CHILDREN THEY DON’T LISTEN WELL, ALL BLINKERD DEAD AND BLIND, ARE WE RUNNING OUT OF TIME?, MOTHER HUNG OVER FROM DRINK, THROWS HERSELF DOWN THE SINK, WATCH IT ALL FALL DOWN SLOW, AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, AM I THE ONLY ONE?, TRYING TO FIGURE A WAY OUT TO FIND MY WAY OUT, NATURE REGULATE, ALL EMOTIONS ARE DECEASED WORN DOWN LIKE ROTTEN TEETH, I RUN A HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR TO TRY AND GET FREE, BUT TO STAINED DOLLARS WE OBEY EASE THE MILATARY AWAY, WHAT HAPPENED TO MAKING THE MOST OF IT?, OF ONE LIFE ONE ROLL OF THE DICE IS ALL YOU GET, IS ALL YOU GET IS ALL YOU GET, THE CAPITAL’S BREAKING DOWN, THE KING ONCE MORE IS DEAD, AND WHERE ARE THE ANIMALS?, BUILDING A PLAN I HOPE, BUILDING A PLAN I HOPE, BUILDING A PLAN I HOPE

SAVER DESTROYER

A SLOW FEELING UP THE BACK OF MY NECK, STARING OUT TO THE BLACK, A COLD SHIVER FROM MY HEART TO MY HEAD, WILL I EVER GET BACK?, A TERROR SOUL WITH NO LIGHT AT THE END, JUST SMOKE AND LOST HOPE, IS THIS REAL OR ARE WE PLAYING PRETEND?, THESE DAYS I JUST DON’T KNOW, SAVER DESTROYER, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I AM, A FIRE ROARING IN THE SOUL OF MY GUT, THIS BURNING CHOICE OF MY LIFE, ALL THE WAYS I TURN THE DOORS ARE SHUT, I MISS MY HOME AND MY WIFE, THE FADED PHOTOGRAPHS OF FACES ARE GHOSTS, STARING BACK IN MY BRAIN, THIS PLACE IS DROWNING IN THE RIVERS OF HATE, MY WORLD IS LOST DEAD AND INSANE, SAVER DESTROYER, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I AM, ARE YOU A SAVER?, OR DESTROYER?

MULE

HOW ONCE YOU WERE AN OBJECT DESIRED, YOUR FAME SADLY BUILT ON LIARS, FLASHING LIGHTS AND A SMILE, AND YOUR COLD HIDDEN DENIAL, AND NOW YOU’RE RUNNING AWAY, HOW ONCE YOU WERE SO CLEAN AND PURE, YOU WERE A HIT SO STRAIGHT OF LIGHT FOR SURE, SETTING YOUR SIGHTS ON THE ONE BIG PRIZE, BUT BEING LURED BY THE DEVILS EYES, AND NOW YOU’RE RUNNING AWAY, HOW WE WINCED AT YOUR SINKING DECEIT, THE BRUISED BLOOD FROM YOUR RUNNING FEET, THERE’S NO ESCAPE FROM THE DEALS THAT YOU STRUCK, THEY HAVE YOUR LIFE IN WHITE LIGHT, CARRY ON CARRY ON, NOW YOUR PICTURED PALE FACE ON THE NEWS, IN CHAINS WITH ALL YOUR POWER REMOVED, AND FRIGHTENED FOR THE MILLIONS YOU MADE, AND FROM THE BARONS THAT MADE YOU THERE SLAVE, CARRY ON, CARRY ON, CARRY ON, CARRY ON, YOU STAR YOU FOOL YOU CHEAT YOU MULE YOU STAR YOU FOOL YOU CHEAT YOU MULE, SHE WAS A STAR, SHE WAS A FOOL, SHE WAS A CHEAT, SHE WAS A MULE

SORROW

I FEEL THIS LOVE TURNING ITS LIFING ME UP INSIDE LIFTING ME UP INSIDE, I KNOW THAT TIME DOESN’T LAST, YOU’VE GOT IT MAKE IT WORK EACH DAY AND KEEP THAT PAIN AT BAY, SORROW DON’T COME HERE NO MORE, I WILL HEAD INTO YOUR LIGHT, WITH NO SENTIMENTS OF LOSS ON MY WAY, JUST MY HEART AND HANDS HOLDING A BRAND NEW DAY, SORROW DON’T COME HERE NO MORE

ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE

TWO GLASSES OF WINE A COUPLE OF LINES AND SHE THINKS SHE'S MOTHER OF GOD, SHE'S STRUTTING HER STUFF AND CAUSING A FUSS SHE'S STOKING HERSELF UP, THE VULTURES ARE LYING LOOKING TO FEAST ON THE SCARECROW OF THE NIGHT, CREEPING AROUND LIKE ROACHES THAT TALK AND RUN WHEN YOU TURN ON THE LIGHT, HER CHOICES ARE SIMPLE SHE THANKS YOU SHE'S GRATEFUL, FOR THIS IS THE MOTION SHE LONGS, SHE WAKES FROM HER SLUMBER UNDER THE RADAR BUT NOBODY KNOWS SHE'S GONE, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE, HE'S GATHERING PACE AND EYEING THE CHASE ALL FUELLED AND MOTORS RUNNING, SHOOTING THE BUZZ A PYLON IN RAIN AS THE MILITARY MARCH IS DRUMMING, ONE WAY CRASH AND GRAB HIS STASH AS THE NIGHT COMES CLOSING IN, THE MIRROR SMASHES BLOOD ON GLASS, AND THE DEVIL COMES IN, HE CHOSE THIS PATH FOR THIS WON'T LAST, NOW HE'S READY TO DRIVE IT HOME, THEN HE CLOSES HIS EYES AS THE NIGHT TURNS COLD AND HE LEAVES THIS EARTH ALONE, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE, HE'S SHAKING THE HANDS OF THE LORD HIMSELF AS THE MOTORCADE IS WAITING  SHE'S TYING HIS TIE AND KISSING HIS JEWELS AS THE BANNER SLOGANS HATRED, AUTOCUE AND THE POLISHING OF NEW AS THE OLD GET HOISTED OUT, MEGAPHONES LOUD FIST TO THE CROWD LETS ALL SET SAIL FOR FREEDOM, AND THE SPEECH THAT REEKS OF FALSE DEFIANCE LIES AND TRUTHFUL WHOREDOM, AND THE SPEECH THAT REEKS OF FALSE DEFIANCE LIES AND TRUTHFUL WHOREDOM, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE, ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE

A THOUSAND FOLLOWERS

THE FIREARMS IMPATIENCE HEAR THE RAVENS CRY, A TOWN WITH EMPTY FEELINGS AND THE DARKEST SKIES, ALONE THE PARANOID POLICEMAN HOW HE WAITS, DYING FOR THE DAY WHEN THE WHOLE WORLD BREAKS, HE IS COLD AND LONELY ON THE CRASHING SHORE, COVER HIM IN LONELINESS AND NOTHING MORE, THIRTY YEARS OF HUNTING DOWN WHAT HE WILL NEVER FIND, HIS POCKETS EMPTY OLD AND NOW HE’S OUT OF TIME, HERE IT IS THE LIGHT THAT HE’S BEEN WAITING FOR, A THOUSAND FOLLOWERS WHO THEY ALL ADORE, FOR HE CAN BRING THEM LOVE AND GIFTS, AND GOLD OF SELF ASSURE, PICK UP HOPE AND FIRE AS THE BULLETS HIT THE DOOR, THEY ALL GO TO ANOTHER PLACE, JOIN HANDS JOIN HANDS, FLASHING LIGHTS AND SIRENS THEY ALL TRAVELLED FROM AFAR, TELLING HOW THEY KNEW IT WASN’T RIGHT FROM THE START, SMOKE AND BOOKS AND FLAMES AND NOWHERE FOR THEM ALL TO HIDE, GATHERED UP TOGETHER LOADED READY FOR THE RIDE, THEY ALL GO TO ANOTHER PLACE, JOIN HANDS JOIN HANDS

THE SAFETY IN NUMBERS IS NOW ZERO

PRESS IT DOWN AGAIN AND AGAIN, LOAD ME LOW, CONTROL MY FRIENDS, WIRE ME UP TO CUT ME DOWN, RING ME OUT ON A TRAIN ALONE, I DON’T UNDERSTAND, WE ARE ALL ALONE, I DON’T UNDERSTAND, WHERE DO I GO?, THE SAFETY IN NUMBERS IS NOW ZERO, EVERYWHERE I GO, I CAN’T CALL HOME, GLOBAL DRONES BITING MY HANDS, CONTRADICTING EARTH, PLUG YOUR BRAIN IN, BURNING ALL THE BOOKS, EVEN THOUGH IT’S RAINING, I DON’T UNDERSTAND, WE ARE ALL ALONE, I DON’T UNDERSTAND, WHERE DO I GO?, THE SAFETY IN NUMBERS IS NOW ZERO, EVERYWHERE I GO, I CAN’T FIND HOME, GLOBAL LOWS, BITING MY HEAD OFF, THE SAFETY IN NUMBERS IS NOW ZERO, WHERE DO I GO?
