Lyrics

The Way

Written By: Gargantua Soul

The Way

I light the match
I start the fire
add some more angst
to make the flames grow higher
I am possessed
the old way must burn
so i can learn

this is a brand new way
watch it all fall away

I bring you fire
watch it all fall away
the walls between us disappear!

Woodstock it burned
prices were high
fire the symbol that the greed must die
Now is the time
the time is right now
come join the fire

This is a brand new way!

I bring you fire
watch it all fall away
the walls between us disappear!

Epidemic

Written By: Gargantua Soul

Epidemic

I'm gonna hop out of my skin tonight
the connections are all but lost
I was a junky on a pedestal
I'm still paying
Skin decaying

Rain on me
Rain on my parade
I the satellite
I can take the string
the night is ours
I promise to take the string

To be the leaders in this destiny
to be the leaders away the epidemic
to be the leaders in this anarchy
the virus is among us, but know that I love us

I'm gonna live like I have never lived
I'm gonna kill the sacred lamb
The rain is washing all my thoughts away
memories beckon me

Rain on me
Rain on my parade
I the satellite
I can take the string
the night is ours
I promise to take the string

To be the leaders in this destiny
to be the leaders away the epidemic
to be the leaders in this anarchy
the virus is among us, but know that I love us

Make Money

Written By: Gargantua Soul

Make Money

Time
Time repeats itself
as we climb
and try to fall

count backwards from ten
to end the violence
look back to me friend,
I'm shouting silence

backwards
goes morality
in other words decline
of our democracy

count backwards from ten
to end the violence
look back to me friend,
I'm shouting silence

in the land of the lost
make money at any cost
in the land of the lost

Look at your brother
love one another
forget about what's different
our sameness will save us

in the land of the lost
make money at any cost
in the land of the lost
