Lyrics

Transparent

Written By: Josh Goodine

Why Can’t you
See Why
We Can’t
Be together anymore.

Love lost
And lies
You’re too
Stupid to make me cry

Chorus:
I’m your eyes
I can see you
I can see you
In your Eyes
I can see you
I can see you

My torn soul
Runs through you
Despite
The evil you put upon me
Love lost
And lies
Taught you
Never ending lies

(chorus)

Bridge:
All these Yesterdays
Remind me of your face
All these Fallen deeds
Remind me of what we used to be
I remember when we were all alone
But your actions I just could not condone
I remember when we used to cry
I remember the coldness of the night

(Chorus)
(Chorus with last 4 Bridge verses)

When you’re walking inside my head, I don’t know why but I won’t be there
I hate the world it’s all the same, I’m never understanding the reasons why

Won’t you take me down
Take me all the way
Walk me to my eyes where
Where my cries will stay
Won’t you grab my tears
Let them seep inside
I’m not coming back I’ll
Open your eyes wide

When your walking inside my head, I don’t know why but I won’t be there
I hate the world it’s all the same, I’m never understanding the reasons why
Don’t want to see the face again don’t want to see but can’t help but stare.
Take off that precious mask again, and face the prosecution that makes you cry.

Won’t you take me down
Take me all the way
Walk me to my eyes where
Where my cries will stay
Won’t you grab my tears
Let them seep inside
I’m not coming back I’ll
Open your eyes wide

Far away I can’t go back,
As I lie here trapped
Take me as I am and see
That my smile is me
Feel free as I Do
Feel free –yeah

(whisper)
Take a look around at the face we try on
Peek around the corner for your Scared soul relies on
Take me to a place ppl never lay their eyes on
Racing thought, making caught, stuck again

When your walking inside my head, I don’t know why but I won’t be there
I hate the world it’s all the same, I’m never understanding the reasons why
Don’t want to see the face again don’t want to see but can’t help but stare.
Take off that precious mask again, and face the prosecution that makes you cry.

Take all of your emotions
Put em in your pocket
And let me realize
What you’ll never be!

Welcome Vacation

Written By: Josh Goodine


The man who hides
His disease is toxic
Warped as a child malformed masochistic thoughts
To feel the thirst in his altered state
With out corruption of his grace

His doctored mind
To the point
Where his authenticity is questioned

His Own death
Is a Welcome Vacation
To Him

For the man who hides
His happiness something you just can’t by
It’s the same as it always was
To feel the thirst in his altered state
With out corruption of his grace

His doctored mind
To the fucking the point
Where his authenticity is questioned

His Own death
Is a Welcome Vacation
To Him
Renovated thoughts
Modified his reality

He will be the one who’s sickened
There’s no cure unless it’s quickened
His only hopes to kill reality
