Inspiration (Live)


It comes and goes like the wind

Breathing into the flames of hearts, sparking wildfires to consume the soul

Sometimes it is gentle, soft in coercion

Other times it is violent, giving birth to madness

A friend to many

A foe to few

It is the foundation of beginnings

The creator of ends

Wishes of the Hopeless Dreamer (Live)

Wishes of the Hopeless Dreamer

Tell me a story filled with romance

Give me a tragedy steeped in history

Bind me a book soaked in lies, show me a prince covered with thorns

Tell me the world is full of mysteries; give me the edge of a star

Send me on a journey to the moon

Bring me the sun and break the sky

Write me an ocean filled with words, and drown me with love beneath the waves

Such Sweet Words (Live)

Such sweet words

Such sweet words, nothing but lies

Spoken under the guise of comfort, soaked in the stench of love

Only a desperate fool would believe, words so pretty and false

Hiding the truth beneath blankets of dreams, and promises to be broken

Such sweet words, I loathe to hear

For they are deceptive, and cruel to the heart

Sinking in like lazy poison, and causing pain to their foolish victim

Such sweet words, should never be spoken

For they only summon misfortune and heartache

Such sweet words, have robbed my soul

And left behind, the shell…of a fool
