Lyrics

Falling Apart

Written By: Sheldon Rourke

Been broken-hearted for so long...I stand tall and I feel no pain...I've lost faith my whole life's gone wrong...you know the saying ...no pain ...no gain...Bad luck rains on me everyday...I'm handcuffed to this life of shame...can't shake it ...can't find a way...now I know there's no one left to blame...& now I hear them knockin'...they'll make a living outta beating the hell out've you! It's been so long...I'm falling apart at the seams...spent all my life...alone & behind the wheel...I've been beggin' on my knees! The news it just broke out today...I never thought it would end this way...my story's over I've come undone...it's no fairytale it's no fucking fun...live by the sword it's the price you pay...I pray to god it's too late anyway...don't let'em know on who or what you feed...you've got to never let'em see you bleed...falling apart at the seams

Down

Written By: Sheldon Rourke

If you'd just start listening...sounds like thunder & lightning...should've seen it coming...long black cloud...rain keeps coming down...Movies playin' in my head...& the ending's pretty red...now picasso's painting...jaqueline's waiting...love keeps goin' down...and there ain't no time...when I'm down...& it don't make sense to me so it won't make sense to you...Just like places been before..were just rotten to the core...kind of sad & ugly...brave but sappy...happy goin' down...you've been messin' with my head...suicide king without a crown...should've seen it comin'...felt it comin'...come on let's go down...

Favorite Candy

Written By: Sheldon Rourke

It's time like these that twist my mind & makes me feel like like an empty box...of my favorite candy...just like a kid I feel like pullin' strings...I don't know if I've come or gone...I still don't know what's goin' on...please give me one more chance...& I'll prove to you that I can dance...seems I've never grown up...Cos I've never been...guess I never will...I think my time has finally come...took 30 years to get this far...how come? why not? what's goin' on? I hope I get to make a stand...get off my fucking face & hands...no one could ever understand...what happenned to the master plan???
