Lyrics

Legal drugs

Written By: Hugo Harrison

Sensational lies sensationalize legal limitations and the justice dies a fascinating story about the way it began recall the smell of dirty money and a shady tan educated sucker with the money and the power caught with a crack whore charging by the hour government officials come sort it out pocketing a drug free America no doubt...Going through life like everything’s fine, it aint fine it’s time to open up your mind and open up your eyes electronically visualize, I’m gonna get high if I can only find the time, it’s time to fly it’s time to cry it’s time to get mad busy wondering why it’s time to watch the world through the devil’s eyes…Look at all those freaks, look at all those freaks living it up living it up. Look at all those freaks roaming round the downtown streets look at all those freaks living it up living it up....The capital lies and they capitalize cold filtered manufactured alibis well I’m a sentimental sucker with a piece of the pie and a thing or two to say about the how and the why I want to get ready and rehearse my parts cause I want to be ready when the freak show starts feel the rage as he hits the stager and just like a good boy I join the parade.. Going through life like everything’s fine, fine it ain’t fine it’s a congregation of freak where loyalty peaks and information leaks, I’m gonna get high if I can only find the time, it’s time to be it’s time to be free it’s time to be we you’ll see.. CH Legalize... My crimes are not crimes against you, I don't believe in the things that you do, legalize cause I just don't get it, It'll work if you let it.. .my crimes for just one day

Alive and wide awake

Written By: Hugo Harrison

Will you take my picture now before I start to fade, listen to my voice when I’ve got nothing left to say, I can only count to ten before I start to shake, I believe I’m evaporating with every breath I take.. And I think I know why, and I think you know why…I’m alive and I am wide awake in this illusion, I am only strong enough to take so much confusion, I’m alive and I am well aware can you see through me I am not strong enough to care if you only know me...Take a look at my watch it glows a greenish bluish flame, take a look at some one who knows the meaning of the game, take a break from reality take a break and see, you will feel the insanity that lives inside of me... And I think I know why and I think you know why…CH I imagine every day like a big gigantic clock, pre-recorded sounds, plastic trees and rubber rocks, punk ass stuck in wonderland my friend Alice says to me, eat this magic mushroom and you will be set free….And I think I know why and I think you know why I am evaporating…….

If I could open my eyes

Written By: Hugo Harrison, Preacher

Stop a moment who you be, who is you and who is me. my life it seems has been erased, my future self has been replaced by a homeless man out on the street, no shirt no shoes no food to eat, how did I get here to htis place? have you seen my face? Mountains flowin rivers glowin where 've we been and how are we doin I can sense some aggrevation so i conjure up an explanation, Meaning less tho it may seem I think I saw it in a dream, brothers helping brothers out, can you help me out? I don't wanna be like you, I don't wanna live like you, I don't wanna drown in your rain and, i don't wanna feel your pain..i f I could open my eyes and see the world that you know, I would try to imagine what your going thru, maybe build you a house so everything that I can to be the mesiah for the hungry man...People live and people die, i wonder how I wonder why. cause this is not your destination resulting from this occupation, slipping on the power flow, what the hell do you know about my sins the where I've beens, can you comprehend? I don't wanna be like you, I don't wanna live like you, I don't wanna drown in your rain and, i don't wanna feel your pain...If I could open my eyes and see the world that you know, I would try to imagine what your going thru, maybe spare you some change do everything that I can to be the mesiah for the desperate man..
