Lyrics

Karen Carpenter (Wet Dreams)

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

I woke up in Karen Carpenters bed
I saw a picture of her
Maybe it wasn't her just some crazy fan
I ran to the door
Battled cobwebs and dustmite
Tv flicked on the hallway and on my face
I unlocked a door

And found myself in a hospital hallway
I found myself pressed up against a window
There a woman in her late 30s laid on the bed
Test tubes coming out of her nose
I touched the glass

And found myself in black Cadillac
A tapping came on the window
A siren in my ear
The police pulled out of the car
I exclaimed "What am I being arrested for!"
He said 'Do you know there's a lady laying in a hospital bed?"
I said "I don't even know who she is!"
The Police pressed me up against the car
And hand cuffed me

I stood in the court room
With the jury staring at me
The judge said "do you know what your being arrested for?"
I said "I don't even know who she is!"
"Your being arrested for every lust every guys made"
I said "Thats to much for me, to take on the responsibility
of others sins"

The Devil Wears your girlfriends shoes

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

Computer screen emulates the room
As one hand clicks through the photos
Why did she run?
Take everything he gave her
But foreign girl friends always make the best
Conartist
And now thats shes gone
Nothing satisfys you anymore
Throw the computer screen against the wall
Watch it shatter just like your life

You take exit 5
Turn signal blinker is ringing
through your ears
Stop the car
Put plastic over the seats
And now have the barrel of the gun
Pointed to your chin
Finger trembling over the trigger
Your mumbling i'm not loved
Your mumbling i'm not loved

Now the setting changes and its not a pretty one
Thats why its a close casket
We find your sister huddled over your coffen
While your older brother in the background
Is just glad you transferred him all your money before you went
And off-ed yourself
Your younger brothers pissed that he didn't get any
And your sister just feels like its dirty money
And suddenly the room fill with a stench of whore
As your Ex quietly sneaks in through the back door
Has she come to mock you?
Does she have a touch of regret?
Is that fake tears?
The Devil Wears your girlfriends shoes
And irony is you paid for them

Days pass
Until we finally go through your belonging
Your sister found the bible that she got for you two years ago
But just because you have it
Doesn't mean you read it
And just because you read it
Doesn't mean you understood anything
She touched the cover
Demons swarmed around her hands
They can't touch her
They can't harm her
She screamed flee demons in the name
of Jesus Christ

Will we see at the pearly gates
I don't know man
Demon on your Bible is one thing
I guess scripture spoken and used in action
Is more powerful then just written
So many times
I'm so hypocritical because of this
But don't ever let them tell you
You aren't loved
Don't ever let them tell you aren't loved
You are loved!
Don't ever let them tell you aren't loved
You are loved
You are loved

Davy Jones Locker

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

And everything I say
The way I act
I'm agreeing
I'm afraid of someone hating me
And when I get that evil glare
That lack of faith
I want to be succeful to prove them wrong.

And there's this moment of pleasure
When I stare into this mirror
And try to be the perfect person
I can never be.

So go ahead
And put on my make up
I'm so faked up
But getting shot 9 times will leave bleeding in the street
So go ahead
With my movie quotes and hand gesture taboo
Can't you see
I'm doing them just to impress you

And I thought you fade way
Just like do when situation gets tough
I quit, run away, start fresh
And still I'll I have left behind
Keeps reminding me of my mistakes
But I have to realize
You don't even think about them any way

And there's this moment of pleasure
When I stare into the mirror
And try to be the perfect person
I can never be.

So go ahead
And put on my make up
I'm so faked up
But getting shot 9 times will leave bleeding in the street
So go ahead
With my movie qoutes and hand gesture taboo
Bacuse can't you see
I'm doing them
I'm doing these things
just to impress you

And I have my future planned out
But I don't even know if i'll live tomorrow
I try to live every day like its a high school reunion
I have to be better
Faster
Stronger
More intelligent More successful

And there's this moment of pleasure
When I stare into this mirror
And try to be the perfect person
I can never be.

So go ahead
And put on my make up
I'm so faked up
But getting shot 9 times will leave bleeding in the street
So go ahead
With my movie quotes and hand gesture taboo
Bacuse can't you see
I'm doing these things just to impress you

Sunrise: A song of two humans

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

And you glance at me across the room
I try to avoid eye contact
But O, how your smile makes me so weak
Now you walking straight towards me
You're beauties so distracting
I try to keep my self busy
Please don't start conversation with me
Because to many times, am I awkward

But your just my crush for the moment
Because realistically we will never be
Please don't stare at me with those eyes
Because the hint of capability
Sets me up over the edge

Now your standing right in front of me
Our hearts don't beat as one
Because mine is beating faster
You touch my shoulder
It sends a tingle through my body
Head to toe
You call out my name
Because I zoned out

But your just my crush for the moment
Because realistically we will never be
Please don't stare at me with those eyes
Because the hint of capability
Sets me up over the edge

Now i'm dreaming
Now i'm dreaming
That we're on beach off PCH
And its raining like cliche
And you put your arms on my waist
And our hair is blowing in the wind like cliche
And we kiss like in that one dashboard confessional song
Then thunder rumbles and these waves crash

But your just my crush for the moment
Because realistically we will never be
Please don't stare at me with those eyes
Because the hint of capability
Sets me up over the edge

Trouble in paradise

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

This is the night we both have been waiting for
Or at least I have
Our Honeymoon the first time
Though we both lay as virgins
There's A fear of awkwardness
A fear of discomfort
A fear of what I might do
Is how the other will think of me

I knew that this was true love
A wedding ceremony was just for show
When the two come together to make one
Thats where the parts become a whole

What if I wasn't a virgin and I met
How would they feel
What if I didn't tell them
And when they found out
What would they think of me
Because I didn't wait for them

Would you say
Love is gentle
Love is kind
Love is selfless
And everlasting
Your love overlooks my offense
And when you hold me in your arms
Will you cry?
Because I love you
And for that I will never understand

What if you came home one day
And found someone else in your spot on the bed
Would you hit me?
Would you beat me?
Would you throw me out on the street

Would you disown me?
Throw me stuff all around the room
I know you must feel unloved
Unsexy
Whats wrong with me?
What have I done?

Would you say
Love is gentle
Love is kind
Love is selfless
And everlasting
Your love overlooks my offense
And when you hold me in your arms
Will you cry?
Because I love you
And for that I will never understand

In-Between Neverland and Future-land

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

I can't write this song down
because i'm a perfectionist
I want that stairway
But I can't write something that
will never exist
I'll lay head against this rock
and pray it comes to me in a dream
those angels will come down that stairway
and hand those lyrics to me

Then I'll guess I'll want that perfect voice
The one like lucifer before he became satan
But Kyle said what about an angle
But pastor said show me a scripture verse
And it'll be true
But I've never found one so who am I supposed to be influenced to
And what about the plucking?
I want strings that vibrate like Jesus Breath.
I want that child's happiness
When he plays this song
And he covers it good.

I don't want what Page heard
I knew that they were demons
Because angles they can't sing

And what about the drum beat?
The one like teacher said she wouldn't let into the school
Well teacher do you know why your school is dying
Because your afriad of change

And what about the bass?
What do I basis my principals on?
If I do it through the serpent
I will be famous
But only in this world.

I don't want what Page heard
I knew that they were demons
Because angles they can't sing

Under the Castle

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

I want to break into Disneyland
Down in the basement
Through the tunnels
Maybe I'd find Walts frozen body
But the cast members assured me he was cremated
Why should I believe them?

I want to break into area 51
Theres gotta be something there
If its worth getting shot on site for
Maybe I'd find something world changing
But the government assures me there is nothing
So why should I believe them?

Would you die for what you believe?
When your face down in the dirt and on your knees?
Because I believe we'll be tested
And when that day comes
Will you die for what you believe?

I believe there's a cure for cancer
But the kemo company assures me there is none
Ifs there is their stocks will plumage
So why should I believe them?

You pick the liy
Up off your daddy's gave
And set it on the piano
And vow dare to play
One day for him
But that liy still sits on the piano!
So hurry up darling and play

Will you die for what you believe?
When your face down in the dirt and on your knees?
Because I believe we'll be tested
And when that day comes
Will you die for what you believe?

Perfectionism: Deadly Venom

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

I've drawn away
And its made me mad
Theres too many thoughts
Running through my head
But its no demon
And its no angel on my shoulder
Just the lies
I feed to myself

And I'm so angry for no reason at all
And where to put it
Because these sleepless nights
Have me hearing the dead
And have I become one of them?

I'm hearing sounds
Like never before
Theres a buzz in my pulse
Theres a ringing in my hear
I'm tossing and turning
I'm ripping the sheets off the bed
And i'm tired
I''m longing for
A little sleep

But i'm a melancholy
I'm a Perfectionist
I'm a deadly venom
Thats slowing killing me
I am the reason
I am the one with doubt
But now I see

And I'm so angry for no reason at all
And where to put it
Because these sleepless nights
Have me hearing the dead
And have I become one of them?

So let me have
A taste of the holy water
Just a little one
So far have I fallen
But you looked me in the eyes
And you said "pick yourself up"
And i'm thirsty
I'm longing for a little drink

But i'm a melancholy
Perfectionist
Its a deadly venom
SLOWLY KILLING ME

And I'm so angry for no reason at all
And where to put it
Because these sleepless nights
Have me hearing the dead
And have I become one of them?

Answering your call?

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

And If a man puts a gun up to my head
There is 3 things I can do
I can fight
I can run
I can let him beat me to ground

And if see me laying here
Will you give me hand
You think my scars and stains
Will leave your leather seats in ruin
You drive your car, slowly glaring at me

And there's one who I always reject
But some how he loves me anyway
And even when my patiemce has run dry
He gives me patience
And he says its ok
Its ok

And if you're in a hurry
No time for a stop
You have your work
Your fancy job to go to

And if see me laying here
Will you give me hand
You think my scars and stains
Will leave your leather seats in ruin
You drive your car, slowly glaring at me

And there's one who I always reject
But some how he loves me anyway
And even when my patiemce has run dry
He gives me patience
And he says its ok
Its ok

And if you see me laying here
Will you give me hand
You take me too
Where they would never take me
Would you show me theres light
Light in this darkness
Will you glow
Will you glow

And there's one who I always reject
But some how he loves me anyway
And even when my patience has run dry
He gives me patience
And he says its ok
Its ok

To many times
Do you give me opportunity's
And I"m selfish
Only thinking of needs at the moment
So heres my decoration
My declarations
Lord
Will you
Use me as vessel
Lord use me
As a vessel
Oh Lord
Lord
Will you?
Use me as vessel?
Use me, use me
My life here is so tempory
Use as a vessel
Lord will you?
Will you use me?
Use me..........

Birdman of Alcatraz

Written By: Geoffrey Brokos

And there's a sense of hesitation
Think about it twice
But I give in
Only to find out
How short the pleasure is

And I'll say
I just need one more time
Thats alll I need to be satisfied
I'll say its over
But it never ends

Come on the mind says
Your free
Drop everything
Forget my morals
But i'm getting sloppy
I'm looking over my back

And I'll say
I just need one more time
And thats alll I need to be satisfied
And i'll say its over
But it never ends

And its just a pixel
And its just a drink
The way it moves
The way it shakes
I pretend this fantasy
But I'm stuck behind this glass
Gazing

And I'll say
I just need one more time
And thats alll I need to be satisfied
And i'll say its over
But it never ends

I forget to look over my shoulder
Just one more time
Thats thats all I need
To be satisfied
And i'll say its over
But it never ends
It never ends
I say its over
But it never ends
It never ends
I keep forgetting to Looks behind my back
Over my shoulder
I'm getting sloppy
I can press repeat
But never Delete
