Lyrics

red carpet

Written By: rick calderone

roll out your red carpet
sing a song destiny
pull out of your dead pockets
make a wish make it me

am i this old? yeah i feel cold, tired afraid
i guess i'll be bold... they say it's flesh that finds a way, start today

ragged strands of red thread to the end...now i'm struggling up this hill
leaning on family and friends, make my path with their will....

when i'm alone, i think of the whole entire way, i'm trying to show...it's not just the things we do or say...
start today

roll out your red carpet
sing a song destiny
set in your heart's locket
the dream that you're free

here is your soul
fear is the hell disspelled away
the myth of the show
be who you are and win the day
start today

A Mystical Call

Written By: Rick Calderone

The answer's here in the midst of us all
It's a crazy mystical call
no chance no fear of a starry fall
it's a hazy wish to follow random nature and shooting stars
and you wonder where you are
a checkered board a deck a cards
and you wonder who you are

scattered pictures upon the sand
vacant soul in the shell of a man
what's the point what's the parable
so immoral so terrible...

The questions form the mythical wall
it's a crazy mixed up call
no chance, no fear, no falling star
it's a lazy push to swallow random words, they'll leave a scar
and you wonder at all we are
a checkered past and a house of cards
and you wonder we are at all

deeper etchings upon the sand
tide's rolling in now i understand
transient can be terrible
transcendence makes us whole

A Mystical Call

THE ANSWER’S HERE IN THE MIDST OF US ALL
IT’S A CRAZY MYSTICAL CALL
THE CHANCE AND FEAR, A STARRING FALL…
IT’S A HAZY WISH TO FOLLOW
RANDOM NATURE A SHOOTING STAR
AND YOU WONDER WHERE YOU ARE
A CHECKERED BOARD A DECK OF CARDS
AND YOU WONDER WHO YOU ARE

SCATTERED PICTURES ACROSS THE SAND
VACANT SOUL IN THE SHELL OF A MAN
WHAT’S THE POINT WHAT’S THE PARABLE
SO IMMORAL, SO TERRIBLE

THE QUESTIONS FORM THE MYTHICAL WALL
IT’S A CRAZY MIXED-UP CALL
NO CHANCE, NO FEAR, NO FALLING STAR…
IT’S A LAZY PUSH TO SWALLOW
RANDOM WORDS WILL LEAVE A SCAR
AND YOU WONDER AT ALL WE ARE
A CHECKERED PAST A HOUSE OF CARDS
AND YOU WONDER WE ARE AT ALL

DEEPER ETCHINGS UPON THE SAND
TIDE’S ROLLING IN…NOW I UNDERSTAND
TRANSIENT COULD BE TERRIBLE
TRANSCENDANCE…MAKES IT WHOLE
