The Sinking

Written By: Soul Sledge

The Sinking

I feel you steal away
Passions rising so nervously
How dangerous everything seems to be

In your eyes -- Moments no one else can touch
It’s your eyes -- That made me feel so much


Lay low lover; lay low
And I will meet you there
Be still lover; be still
The sinking ends in nowhere
Sinking into nowhere

I will give you all you will allow
Avoiding questions every way you know how
Push and I will bend; push and I will bend

In your eyes -- Your intentions lie
It’s your eyes -- Make my inhibitions die

Lay low lover; lay low
And I will meet you there
Be still lover; be still
The sinking ends in nowhere

The beginning of the end
Is more than I can take
Precious moments
Does perfection make
Our flesh does more than conquer space
But soon you’ll be alone
With charcoal for a soul, and I’ll be gone…

Long gone…

Sinking deeper…

Sinking deeper…

Mind Killer

Written By: Soul Sledge

Mind Killer

Within this silence, killing time – No place to go
Long shadows falling past – On the wind a taste of snow
Deadly nights of biting cold – Silver moon the glow
Every breath a shiver now… Every path an endless road…

No time for rest, my dear – Pushing on for home
Every step a subtle one… Every fate the future holds…

We choose this
It’s our time to shine
We choose this

Picking up the pace again – They’re closing fast
Haunting trees that tower tall – Are slowing down our path
Hounds wail a distant song – They've caught our scent at last
Every turn a wasted step… Every fear stems from our past…

We choose this
It’s our time to shine
We choose…
Life – There's so much more outside these walls
Open doors to run away
Come, take my hand and we can start again

Two steps behind us now – Galloping death
I feel our freedom reaching out – And my heart stops in my chest
Perhaps now they’ll see the light…

… but the selfish leaders of this world hold onto power so tightly
… that it’s choking us into submission under their thumb

Every mind awaken now…
Every fist seize up what’s left…

We choose…
Life – There's so much more outside these walls
Open doors to run away
Come, take my hand and we can start again
Make your choice, my friend

Free?

Fear?

Free?

Fear?

Most Solid Ground

Written By: Soul Sledge

Most Solid Ground

All I ever do / is clear the way for pain
Leaving myself open / I invite the heartache in

If only I could slip away
I wish there was another way
I’d leave the scars for you to find
To let you know it’s all behind me

I break the surface / Release the tension
Driving back all the fears that kept me down
I’ll find a purpose / A new direction
Standing firm on this most solid ground

In my mind / I’m tough the way you are
Feelings shed instead of tears / no one in my heart

If only I could slip away
I wish there was another way
I’d leave the scars for you to find
To let you know it’s all behind me
I break the surface / Release the tension
Driving back all the fears that kept me down
I’ll find a purpose / A new direction
Standing firm on this most solid ground

All you say
All I see / is the life you’ve wasted now
All you say
All I see / is that there’s no common ground

Beneath the surface / Beneath the tension
Buried deep in the fears I’ve try to drown
I’ve found a purpose / Made my decision
Standing firm on this most solid ground

All you say
All I see / is the life you’ve wasted now
All you say
All I see / is that there's no common ground

Albatross

Written By: Soul Sledge

This is not a test
This is not another lie
What is said here
Gets us nowhere
What must be done ends tonight

Why can't you walk away from me
I'm on my knees
Finish me now
Hear my voice
Have no doubt
Why can't you understand me
There is no time

No time for games anymore
Draw your blade and settle the score
Spill my blood to satisfy
Thh thing inside
That makes you call me whore

Why can't you walk away from me
I'm on my knees
Finish me now
Hear my voice
Have no doubt
Why can't you understand me
In your eyes
You despise
See yourself paralyzed
Why can't you understand me

Every time I turn around
You twist the knife again
Why don't you simply kill me
Bring this to an end

Why can't you walk away from me
I'm on my knees
Finish me now
Hear my voice
Have no doubt
Why can't you understand me
I've tried my best to let you go
Still you walk away from me
In your eyes
You despise
See yourself
Paralyzed

Grumblecakes

Grumblecakes

The way I fell for you – like a suicide
Desperate and wanting – I was terrified

You flow through me like a waterfall
Hard to believe you never loved me at all

The feelings I have inside – impossible dreams
Filling up my head – with these hopeless screams

You flow through me like a waterfall
So hard to believe you never loved me at all
Late at night I feel the hours crawl
How will I force myself to stand tall?

You’ve beaten me down
Your brutal honesty

You’ve beaten me down… down… down… down…

You flow through me like a waterfall
So hard to believe you never loved me at all
Late at night I feel the hours crawling up the walls again
How will I ever... ?
