Lyrics

The Haunting

Written By: Lyrics written by Ger Murphy of J-90 – 2002

THE HAUNTING

I WOKE UP IN A COLD SWEAT,
HAD THE SAME DREAM AGAIN,
IT KEEPS RE-ACCURING,
I DON’T WANA SLEEP AGAIN,
I’M WONDERING, FREAKING OUT,
WHAT’S HAPPENING,
IF IT MEANS SOMETHING,
WHY WHERE AND WHEN,
DREAMING I’M BEEN CONTROLED LIKE AN ABICUS,
EVERY MOVE WE MAKE’S LIKE SOMEONES WATCHING US,
IT KEEPS COMING BACK TO ME,
MY DREAMS HAUNTING LIKE A GHOST.

NO MATTER WHERE I RUN IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS THIRST INSIDE OF ME,
IT FEEDS UPON THE THE HAUNTING.

I’M FALLING INTO AN ABYSS,
FALLING HAS NO END, IT’S BOTTOMLESS,
THIS ABYSS, IT SEEMS TO BE WATCHIN ME FALL,
I CANT HELP BUT SCREEM,
CAUSE THERE’S EYES ON THE WALL,
I DO BELIEVE, I DON’T BELIEVE,
THE MESSAGE I RECEIVE,
THE IN THE OUT, THE OTHER SIDE,
WHERE PARANORMAL DOES RESIDE,
THEY’RE THERE I’M HERE,
THEY KNOW, I KNOW IN SUCH AN EMPTY PLACE,
I WANA KNOW SO I CAN WAIT,
UNTIL THEY SHOW THEIR FACE,
DREAMING THAT I’M FALLING DOWN,
CAN YOU HEAR ME CALLING OUT.

NO MATTER WHERE I RUN IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS THIRST INSIDE OF ME,
IT FEEDS UPON THE THE HAUNTING.
NO MATTER WHERE I RUN IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS THIRST INSIDE OF ME,
IT FEEDS UPON THE THE HAUNTING.

IT KEEPS COMING BACK TO ME,
MY DREAMS HAUNTING LIKE A GHOST,
I FEEL LIKE I’M POSSESED,
POSSESED I’VE GOT A HOST
AM I STUCK WITH WHO I AM,
WITH A GHOST HAUNTING ME AROUND,
WATCHING MY BACK FREAKING ON EVERY SOUND,
OVER MY SHOULDER ALL AROUND,
IN A BLACK HOODED CLOAK STARING ME DOWN,
IS IT DEATH ITSELF, BREAKING TESTING ME,
HAUNTING ME NOW.

NO MATTER WHERE I RUN IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS THIRST INSIDE OF ME,
IT FEEDS UPON THE THE HAUNTING.
NO MATTER WHERE I RUN IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND ME,
THIS THIRST INSIDE OF ME,
IT FEEDS UPON THE THE HAUNTING.

Room 5

Written By: Lyrics written by Ger Murphy & Ed McCarthy of J-90 – 2003

ROOM 5

White lines on the road begin to blur, run away,
Impairing my vision of the world, every day,
Focus on things I’ve left behind, that’s the way,
Always in the back of my mind, it’s not to take.

Wake up too yourself, (wake up it’s good to be alive)
Wake up too yourself, (wake up inside room 5)
While you’re at it could you, ( wake up)
Wake me up inside, (wake up inside room 5)
IN ROOM 5!

Twisted generation leaves the whole world turn side out,
What a place,
Fearing but you still have no doubt, but it’s ok,
Trusting that it will be the same, every day,
Changes but I’m the one to blame, yeah eh yeah…,

Wake up too yourself, (wake up it’s good to be alive)
Wake up too yourself, (wake up inside room 5)
While you’re at it could you, ( wake up)
Wake me up inside, (wake up inside room 5)
IN ROOM 5!

It’ll be fine, thinking where I would be,
Not where I should be, in room 5 x 4

Wake up too yourself, (wake up it’s good to be alive)
Wake up too yourself, (wake up inside room 5)
While you’re at it could you, ( wake up)
Wake me up inside, (wake up inside room 5)
The place I wana be now,
Just so I can see,
The world that I have taken,
Saves my sanity………….

What I see

Written By: Lyrics written by Ger Murphy & Shane O’Dwyer of J-90 – 2006

WHAT I SEE

You told me that you could make dreams come true,
And told me that you can see but can see it better,
The stop signs in outer space implicate,
That it’s obvious too me that there is more out there,
The mist persists but you resist,
The paper is rough erasing the weather.

The road shows me the way, can ya see, what I see,
Can ya see the wood from the trees?
If I lack clarity, will ya, real to me,
Do you see what I see?

I just can’t hide anymore and ignore,
What I have done and run from my troubles,
I’m blinded by the sun in the sky,
I can’t even tell if it’s one from the other,
But I wipe my eyes of all goodbyes,
Instead of them, not ducking for cover.

The road shows me the way, can ya see, what I see,
Can ya see the wood from the trees?
If I lack clarity, will ya, real to me,
Do you see what I see?

The mist persists but you resist,
The paper is rough erasing the weather.
But I wipe my eyes of all goodbyes,
Instead of them, not ducking for cover.
