Lyrics

High Horse

Written By: Darren McGovern

You’re so cavalier – to everyone else
You only give a damn about your self
You never lend an ear, can’t hear anyway
Never help your friends in a helpful way

You’re so cavalier – so full of crap
You’re full of yourself, mind like a trap
You help yourself, don’t take no flack
Leave your smell like an alley cat

You’re so cavalier – you talk too much
You use your past like a fuckin crutch
Blame everyone, can’t see your self
Your own desperation has become your wealth

You’re so cavalier – I hate your guts
The way you behave, drives me nuts
Nothing I say will make you move
What the thinker thinks, the prover proves

End of the Tale

Written By: Darren McGovern

we were so close
what made you blind
watching your life
through the tears

you struck a pose
a place to hide
watching your life
through the tears

i know we’ll make it
i know we’ll fail
i know we can take it
it’s not the end of the tale

now you are old
story untold
watching your life
through the tears

what your heart holds
if you were bold
watching your life
through the tears

i know we’ll make it
i know we’ll fail
i know we can’t fake it
now it’s the end of the tale

watching your life - through the tears
watching your life - through the tears

This Old Life

Written By: Darren McGovern

there is no secret
there’s nothing to learn
the place where we came from is where we return

there is no outside
there is no inside
what will we do now there’s nothing to hide

when this old life makes you crazy
when this old life brings you down
too much thinking makes your mind hazy
turn it off and follow your heart

it’s gonna be alright
it’s gonna be just fine
if we could breathe and relax our minds

when this old life makes you crazy
when this old life brings you down
too much thinking makes your mind hazy
turn it off and follow your heart
when this old life makes you crazy
when this old life brings you down
too much thinking makes your mind hazy
turn it off and follow your heart
turn it off and follow your heart

there’s no beginning
there is no end
there’s no illusion
no need to pretend

Patriot Act

Written By: Darren McGovern

we’ve come to a time we’ve lost sight of what’s right
confusing the symbol for the meaning behind
and i know that there’s nothing to say
to someone who still thinks this way

but i can’t help and voice my disgust of it all
and i can’t help admitting that i hope that you fall,
flat on your back for your misguided views
and that short sighted logic you use

and yet i wonder how you can make sense of it all
you’re continually missing the point of it all
you just reek of hypocrisies smell
you condemn everyone else to hell
for the things you don’t yet understand
you forget how we came by this land
on the blood of some other race
i can’t even look you in the face

as you stand at attention with your hand on your heart
and make claims of your pride and how you did your part
and how everyone else thinks like you
as your fixed narrow mind doesn’t move
i ask you just what does that prove
born is a fool every minute, it’s true
… a fool just like you

we’ve come to a time we’ve lost sight of what’s right
confusing the symbol for the meaning behind
we’ve come to a time we’ve lost sight of what’s right
confusing the symbol for the meaning behind
we’ve come to a time we’ve lost sight of what’s right

Smile

Written By: Darren McGovern

there is nothing in this world like your smile
misty words and pictures only pale
you walk into a room
and banish all the gloom
there is nothing in this world like your smile

i watch the way you grow on everyone
your warmth and tenderness are like the sun
falling on the bloom
the rays descend into
i watch the way you grow on everyone

i see the distant future in your eyes
like softly, sweetly, spoken lullabies
waiting there for me
a blissful destiny
i see the distant future in your eyes

there is nothing in this world like your smile
