Lyrics

Visions of You

Written By: Sky Zito

Patience isn’t easy
As the world passes you by
Patience has no value
As you sit and wonder
Why is life so hard?
Why am I not satisfied?
Seems as though answers are hard to find
Feeling as though just maybe

Life is just
Thrills defined by dreams
Come to life at best in
Streams of hope disguised as reasons
To keep on dreaming in visions of you

Free anticipation doesn’t seem to be a gift
Been thinkin’, thinkin’
Tasting inspiration
As I’m savoring this twist it’s become clear
Clarifying from afar
Never denying just who we are
Feeling as though just maybe

Life is just
Thrills defined by dreams
Come to life at best in
Streams of hope disguised as reasons
To keep on dreaming in visions of you

Slightly better, loosely based on
Simple indirect connections
Two steps sideways mixed by a fraction
Ain’t no guaranteed satisfaction when…

Life is just
Thrills defined by dreams
Come to life at best in
Streams of hope disguised as reasons
To keep on dreaming in visions of you

Dirty Dog

Written By: Sky Zito

Stoned in the early mornin’ feelin’ fine
I got a case of that full moon fever on my mind
I know what I feel to be real
Ain’t no superstition nippin’ at my heels

I can cling to midnight laughter
Oh yes I’ve finally found just what I’ve been after

(Chorus):
Black Roses all around
Smoke Rings and city sounds
Getting down in the gritty
A dirty dog and a sexed up kitty
Flipside of fantasy
Everything you need to be
So B-Side pretty
My kind of pretty

La de dah dah dah

Time is gone baby come on, let it roll
What I know is not to be afraid
As I’m feeling no pain
I’m draped in fine Italian Leather
I hear my name
The hounds are howlin’ at the door

I can cling to midnight laughter
Oh yes I’ve finally found just what I’ve been after

(Chorus)

Pink Fish Nets in the rain
Rock Candy in my veins
Two more drags
Three more lines
Sing it with me four more times

La de dah dah dah

(Chorus)

Song of Sadness

Written By: Sky Zito

Why am I acting this way?
Self inflicted day by day
Self-destruction slowly decays
Feeling like an unwanted stray

Rolling along
Singing a song of sadness
Good things are gone
Everything’s wrong, it’s tragic

Please don’t leave me alone
I say to myself
On the other hand
I don’t want to be with anyone else
Can you tell I’m a little distraught
Just a little insane at the time?
So I’ll hide behind a smiling face
And everything will seem fine

Rolling along
Singing a song of sadness
Good things are gone
Everything’s wrong, it’s tragic

Everything feels the same
The same, the same, the same
Yesterday, tomorrow, all the same
The same, the same, the same
Everything, it feels the same
The same, the same, the same
Again and again, around and around,
Always the same
My hope goes down the drain

Lonely Inside

Written By: Sky Zito

Tell me if you feel the same
Are you feelin’ my pain?
We are bringing each other down

Lonely though I’m not alone
Does this feel like home’s supposed to feel
Does this all seem real to you?

Can’t you tell that nothing is the same
And I don’t want to play this game
Of placing blame and naming names anymore

On my tongue the air in here tastes stale
I need to exhale
Just let go, let it all flow from my heart

Can’t you tell that nothing is the same
And I don’t want to play this game
Of placing blame and naming names anymore

All dressed up with nowhere to go
I’m gonna’ let my feelings show
This time (I) won’t be left behind
This time I won’t be so blind

Solidifying selfishness
I can’t believe it’s come to this
In time I know you’ll be ok
How am I supposed to live this way
What else can I say…
