Lyrics

Nothing But Regrets

Written By: David M. Taylor II

V1
The trees that died to make my floor
Are staring at my face
I'm sitting in a room of candles
Circling my space
With 20/20 I can see
The night we fought like wolves
The words we spoke, were ivory fangs
And we bled from ugly wounds

Now my place, is a white room of pain
And the walls, they ask, will I see you again?

Chorus
Daily drinking
the salt in my tears
Is as bad as it gets
But that's what happens
when your life
Is Nothing but Regrets

V2
(I hear) black screeching tires,
it's six A.M.,
and the kids still hate my guts
My prince won't even call me "Dad"
And my daughter thinks I'm nuts
Their weekend in my bastard jail
Is what the court sentenced them to
But deadbeats never pay the bills
So they’ve learned to curse me, too

You drive them away, from my white room of pain
And the walls, they ask, will I see them again?

Chorus
Daily drinking
the salt in my tears
Is as bad as it gets
But that's what happens
when your life
Is Nothing but Regrets

Bridge
It's funny how time refuses to stop
It seems to ignore all of my rants
But I would work one thousand jobs
Just to buy a second chance

V3
The smell of age and broken dreams
Lives where they keep my mom
I see her every Tuesday now
To keep my guilt from harm
That crooked smile from the last stroke
Is all that's left of her
'Cause when I was eight, Dad threw us away
Then heroin wrecked her world

They wheel her back, to her white room of pain
And my mind won't ask, if that's me someday?

Chorus Out
Daily drinking
the salt in my tears
Is as bad as it gets
But that's what happens
when your life
Is Nothing but Regrets

Nothing but Regrets

Nothing but Regrets

True Father

Written By: David M. Taylor II

Vs. 1
Hidden in a dark womb
My heart pulsed to life
When my hands were just liquid
You still gripped them tight

You painted me with black skin
As you filled me with breath
The blueprints of a holy mind
Turned seed into flesh

Vs. 2
Mom screamed with Eve’s voice
And burst open with blood
She nursed me and she cursed me
With a missing childhood

From a skateboard to a boardroom
My dad, too, was blind
He guided me with poverty
‘cause he used mortal eyes

Chorus
God, True Father,
Show me your ways
With your fingers you shaped me, Wrote the book of my days

God, True Father
Creator Friend
From the womb unto judgment
Stay with me until the end

Vs. 3
Will You hold up a grey head
That's been smitten by time?
Will your voice be invisible
If my ears start to lie?

When my joints crack from labor
And wrinkles crowd my face
If society says “worthless”
Can an old man find grace?

Chorus
God, True Father,
Show me your ways
With your fingers you shaped me, Wrote the book of my days

God, True Father
Creator Friend
From the womb unto judgment
Stay with me until the end

Do You Love Jesus?

Written By: David M. Taylor II

Vs.1
Sin’s wicked touch
black claws on my soul
to rip my life apart
I need the light
of sacred truth
ablaze inside my heart

Vs. 2
Messiah was giv’n
wrapped in dark flesh
a child alone and pure
blessed virgin born
an object of scorn
the only certain cure

Chorus
Do you love Jesus? Yeah
Do you love Jesus? Yeah
Oh, how I love the Lord!

Vs.3
The Groom and the bride
Twelve chosen ones
received his very breath
arrested at dawn
betrayed by a friend
with the kiss of death

Vs. 4
I AM was pierced
his bones out of joint
wet spit upon his face
blood and green thorns
black swollen eyes
to free the human race

Chorus 2x

Bridge
HIV and cancer he bore
Thirty-nine stripes to put my sickness down
now from the grave is born a brand new start
that’s why I love Him, with all my heart

Chorus 3x Out
