Not Allowed to Pray

Written By: Luis Dulin

Once I used to say that they're all fools
But it became a lie
Then I started to play by the rules
And it became a life

So I make it real
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pay
For what I've done
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pray

My deaf ears forgave the Spanish fly
'Til it became divine
Cold communion wine took me up high
'Til it became a crime

So I make it real
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pay
For what I've done
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pray
Cut me off
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pay
For my own thoughts
If only 'cause I'm not allowed to pray

A New Way to Play

Written By: Luis Dulin

Your love of conformity has often left me feeling baffled
Were it up to you, then you would have us be the same
Keeping all the same routines and breeding like a herd of cattle
In spite of everyone, I would rather leave the deed undone

'Cause it's all I can say (I'm comin' atcha)
With a new way to play: I know I am
Yes, it's all I can say (I'm comin' atcha)
With a new way to play: I know I am

One thing I can say for sure is that you've always been an asshole
If you could see you through my eyes, you would feel the same
Don't talk to me anymore, now, if it isn't too much hassle
In spite of all you've done, I would rather not hate anyone

A little bit intolerant of all intolerance (it sickens me)
Your sadistic ardor sickens me
It must be such an awful thrill, when you know your bitterness is contagious

In spite of everyone, in spite of all you've done to me
It must be such an awful thrill, when your bitterness is contagious

But there's nothing left for me to say if you've all been taught to be this way
I won't even try to make a scene; I just mean to keep on dreaming as I am

It's a new way to play

Why It Isn't Wise

Written By: Luis Dulin

Talk to me directly, you can give it to me straight
Just put me on hold again, 'cause I would rather wait
I'd leave you alone if you would issue a reply
I'd give you a reason if you'd only tell me why

(You tell me) why it isn't wise
to have an open sore be sore for so long
Why it isn't wise
to have a drink when I've been sober (for) so long

I hate you so much that I would like to see you hurt
All I ever asked of you was just to have a word
Choking you and squeezing you and draining you of life
I'd give you a reason if you'd only tell me why

I've gotta find us something to do
Better for me, better for you
(Because I just want to do the right thing)
