Coma

Written By: James Martin

hey shaggy you awake
says the scooby in your brain
are you there at all
or are you tripping balls

and are you trapped within your walls
can you answer any calls
to the show
you call yourself
are you you or someone else

move breathe
blink please
are you wide awake in your dream
so still you can't even scream

are you wide awake in your dream
so still you can't even scream
move breathe
blink please.

Whisper Kiss

Written By: James Martin

please give me a whisper kiss to break this silence
please give me a whisper kiss to stop my violence
lost in an unspoken sea of words
i'll fight till the end not to get burned

i don't call you like i ought to
i don't call you like i ought to

i've fallen for you before
whether it was you or me i don't believe that again i've washed ashore
lost at sea
fight the rain
drown in you
this moment's so strange

we're dead close
and miles apart
i want a whisper kiss
please miss

i don't love you like i ought to
i don't love you like i ought to

when will we start to become one
the same thing the same thing
oh please/whisper kiss
oh please/whisper kiss
oh please/whisper kiss
oh please/whisper kiss
let's begin

whisper
whisper
whisper
whisper
kiss
kiss
kiss
kiss.

Running From The Posse

Written By: James Martin

and it ain't no fun running from the posse

and these boys yeah they come out
to tempt death like a clown
and it's all in self defense i'll be running till i'm dead

in the end yeah i'll get him
and i hope this isn't it
and it's not so easy being billy bonnie
and it ain't no fun running from the posse.
