Lyrics

The Slow Vibration

Written By: Andy Rumsey

All this angst is what I’ve left for you
And I’m leaving open all the things I have to do
Am I too honest? Am I too honest…just like you

You keep the faith because it’s been too long
Part of a lonely yesterday that’s all but dead and gone
Can you be honest? Can you decide only for you?

(Chorus)
Fill a void with the space of your body
And rejoice when committed to memory

Your happy family proved a dull mirage
And your body meant you well, but blessed you with the gift of sabotage
Am I too honest? Am I too honest…just for you

Chorus

Blue ink like tears on the paper
Am I so effortlessly choked up?
You look defeated like never before
And there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing more I can do

Chorus

Fill a void with the space of your body
And rejoice when committed to memory
The police will discover my body
And dispose of the evidence promptly

No One Likes a Fool

Written By: Andy Rumsey

No one likes a fool, and you cannot trust the meek
And I know this ‘cause I’ve seen it before
Rest assured that I am as nervous as I seem
I just don’t have a good cause anymore

I don’t get paid to think, but you can pay my arm to bleed
In a sterile clinic downtown on second street
So, here I go again out to save the world from grief
Pay attention and get yourself some sleep

(Chorus)
I’m just a poet make believe
Silly me conjuring up these thoughts

You’re no good for me like I’m no good for you
I’ve been saying this one all along
I’m so proud of you I caught you keeping clean
And you’re so proud you’re bearing all for me

Chorus

See what I mean- oh you will see what I mean
I’m telling everyone- feet don’t fail me now
See what I mean

Read with My Eyes Closed

Written By: Andy Rumsey

I like to read with my eyes closed
‘Cause the Sunday paper’s got me scared
The consequence of distraction
And a generation unprepared

The noble truth of the ages
Might makes right when reason is gone
History books ripe with pages
Where war makes peace and rights all wrongs

I see a pattern repeating
Where the words of the wise are all abused
The consequence of reflection
On how the puppet thinks and how the puppets used

The search for logic and reason
Ends at the cemetery up Thousand Steps
The noble truth of the ages
War is peace when reason is gone- reason IS gone

Mary

Written By: Andy Rumsey

You are what you eat
I’m not eating anything the rest of the week
I spent last these few days
Mourning what the future holds and fearing the change

You treat this life like it’s some kind of curse
The joy that you seek leaves you disenchanted
and I…I can relate
We, the disenchanted

Mary, mother of god
Stop all these illusions and admit you’re a fraud
And, Mary, is it that hard
To understand our weaknesses and see it’s why we can’t evolve anymore

You had the gall to pull me aside, lay down the law, make me disenfranchised…
Now I carry it with me, but no one seems to know
And I’ll bury it with me, ‘cause I can’t seem to grow
…no one seems to know…bury it with me

Are you there? Mary, can you hear me?

A Figment of Your Aspirations

Written By: Andy Rumsey

Out of my skin I just get up and leave for I am haunted
Re-evaluate the things that I need when I am wanted
I am a dream just a figment of all your aspirations
And I could be a voice and a figure for all your worldly nations

And I might of found Jesus, but he didn’t write this song
Yah I may have found Jesus, but he doesn’t write these songs

You say “God” when there are so many ways that you could say it
I sing of love and devotion but can’t find words to pray
Out of my skin I just get up and leave for I am haunted
Re-evaluate the things that I need when I am wanted

I am a dream just a figment of all your aspirations
And I could be a voice and a figure for all your worldly nations

‘Cause the weight of the world is not how you said it’d be
No the weight of the world is not how you said it’d be

Out of my skin I just get up and leave for I am haunted
Re-evaluate the things that I need when I am wanted
I am a dream just a figment of all your aspirations
And I could be a voice and a figure for all your worldly nations
