    The Fates Fate:

    The fates have decided to let me live some more.
    They want me to see the future so they opened up the door.
    They looked me in the eyes and said go and live your life.
    Go now child and roam the earth and find yourself a wife.

    Go and enjoy every last breath before your time is over and you are sentenced to death.
    Go and enjoy the sun in the sky so when life is over you are willing to die.
    Go and enjoy the green of the earth go have your children and witness their birth.
    Go enjoy life everyday live a good life until your old and your gray.

    When it's your time to die you will pay the toll.
    The price of the toll is your very own soul.
    I looked at the three and said you're nothing but hags.
    A trio of witches dressed up in rags.

    I've met the Devil and he sweats when I speak.
    He knows next to me he's nothing but weak.
    I've made Satan run and leave his pitchfork behind.
    He knows that my evil is one of a kind.

    I scared the Reaper he ran from my sight.
    He wanted my soul but i put up a fight.
    Now the words I have heard they sound like a threat.
    The words you just said I will make you regret.

    I will be back when my time is through.
    When I come back here's what I'll do.
    I will go up to Satan and take over the throne.
    He'll run into Meducca and she'll turn him to stone.

    Then I will come and torture you three.
    Go ahead and laugh now but wait and you'll see.
    That when I take over my demons will rage.
    They have spent way to long locked in their cage.

    You will come and you'll beg with your face to the ground.
    But I won't hear a word no I won't hear a sound.
    You'll be slashed with a whip all night and all day.
    I'll torture you slowly in every single way.

    So when I return it will be way too late.
    You've danced with the Devil you've sealed your own fate.

    Will You Be My Valentine?

    I hear cupid singing, in a soft and beautiful way.
    Singing for all the lovers, on this valentines day.
    The singing is so beautiful, such a beautiful work of art.
    He goes around singing songs, to open up your heart.

    I want you to know, my heart belongs to you.
    Each and every night, i know our love is true.
    I pray that you know, i love you in every way.
    Your the one who holds my heart, on this valentines day.

    I long for you with all my soul, and with all my heart.
    I'm so in love and confused, i don't know where to start.
    I want to hold you in my arms, in a loving embrace.
    I want to say i love you as we're standing face to face.

    I think about you everyday, in my wake and in my dreams.
    And i know that love, is not always what it seems.
    When i am around you, the world feels so right.
    I want to hold you in my arms, everyday and every night.

    I never want to lose you, you are my one desire.
    Your the one i think of everyday, you set my soul on fire.
    I know one thing thats for sure, i'm glad that you are mine.
    So i have just one request, will you be my valentine?

    The Beautiful Indian Maiden And Me:

    There once was an Indian Maiden she was the love of my life.
    I loved her so much that every night I dreamed of her being my wife.
    I am an Indian Warrior Lonewolf is the name I have chose.
    I saw the Indian Maiden and couldn't help but fall in love.

    I felt the warmth of her lonesome heart and her soul's as pure as a dove.
    I looked at the Indian Maiden and said you are beautiful, what is your name?
    She said they call me Lonesome Maiden and then the story came.
    She said I was made to wonder alone one of a tribe that is no more.

    Many of warriors have told me I'm beautiful but in my heart I can't be sure.
    Now I have listened to medicen men and have heard the stories of old.
    I know my body's a pleasure to see and my face is one to behold.
    Now the stories I have heard such beautiful works of art.

    They say that beauty comes from within that beauty comes from the heart.
    Since I can not marry outside of my people I will carry their memory with pride.
    So I am made to wonder alone I will never be anyone's bride.
    Then the story ended she vanished and left me there.

    So I prayed to Napi and said why is life so unfair.
    So at night when I dream I'll tell you what i see.
    There in the forest standing together was the beautiful Indian Maiden and me.

    WHISPERS:

    Cool As A Whispered Prayer
    I'm Over Here
    And Your Over There
    Playing With Mortality
    You're Dancing On Fire
    On A Very High Wire
    The Echoes Are Heard
    From Someone Or Something
    Maybe A Bird
    An Injured Wing
    It Strives To Fly
    To An Inviting Plum Tree
    So It Can Try
    To Eat And Rest Peacefully

    Behold What A Sight
    The Day Turns To Night
    For A Few Seconds Only
    The Moon Hides And Passes Slowly
    On Their Way
    The Men Witness This
    Wait For The Call
    To Ominously Play
    They Dream Another Place And Time

    You'll Have To Pay
    The Hourglass Has No Sand
    The Sun Gets Close
    Time Has Run Out
    Where Did It All Go
    Poured Through A Spout
    It Went Far Too Slow
    What A Shame
    Time Wasted And
    All Over The Land
    Omega Day...

    Sir X.


    My Existence is truly enigmatic
    I can't work it all out
    Why i'm here
    What's it all about
    Take dreams for example
    Our Minds Twisted
    Our souls, who's to know
    And though we are retarded
    I wonder if they'll show
    So many things unknown
    Influences vast and few
    The seeds have been sewn
    Intoxicate with you
    But No, It's in our blood
    In one day
    Explain the crude
    dna

    Oh, how do you know
    I mean, are you sure
    Which way to go
    Oh mr., how do you know
    The bureaucrats
    They're little mice
    Like little weeds
    Fighting lice
    Oh well, they come and go
    Making a name
    On with the show

    And in the end
    They still Pretend
    In order to score
    A little more
    Save me some
    Sir X

    I think i'll come
    Madam Sex
    What's it all about'
    Can you work it out
    Questions here and there
    Solutions everywhere
    So we want to look
    I think i'll read a book

    I do not want to look
    Instead i'll read a book
    What's it all about
    Can you work it out
    Questions here and there
    Solutions everywhere...

    The Meeting With The Grim Reaper.


    The Grim Reaper said the time is near.
    To go back in time to see and to hear.
    All the acts you have committed.
    All the times you should have quitted.

    You'll see how your life could have changed.
    If all those acts were rearranged.
    You could have been rich the rest of your life.
    You could have had a mansion and a beautiful wife.

    That beautiful life you'll never see.
    Because of the way you chose to be.
    I looked at the Reaper and said you're a discrace.
    Take your hocus pocus and get out of my face.

    I've survived death and I've come back to live.
    And I've taken everything this worlds had to give.
    I've done my time now leave me alone.
    And don't bother me again until my names on a stone.

    You better leave right now Reaper before things get real bad.
    You're pissing me off you don't want to make me mad.
    I'll tear you to pieces and torture your soul.
    I'll throw you in the fire and turn you to coal.

    I am pure evil, Ghostboy is my name.
    And if you don't know this then stay out of the game.
    Now you're on my turf so watch what you say.
    Because some of my boys might take it the wrong way.

    Well the Reaper got scared and vanished with smoke.
    I picked up my blunt and I took one last toke.
    I looked at my boys and said he'll never come back.
    Because his soul is gray and mine's pure black.

    HOUSE IS DOWN:


    Why Did You Play With My Fire?
    Yes Tell Me Why
    Did You Set Me A Light?
    I Never Wanted To Fight
    Don’t Shoot The Messenger
    That’s An Old Mistake
    But You’ve Given
    More Than I Can Take

    Why Did You Play With Your Fire?
    Yeah Tell Me Why Did You Set Yourself A Light?
    I’m Out Of Water
    All Out Of That Type Of Water
    Now You’re Going To Burn
    And You Can’t Even Swim Yet
    Forget About Me
    Because I’ve Forgotten About You

    I Have Many Friends
    Even In A Dark Storm
    Yes, Right Through The Storm
    Don’t Need Your Words
    Don’t Need Your Care
    I Don’t Even Need Your Stare
    Just Don’t Need You At All
    Because You’re About To Fall

    I’m Going To
    Bring The Whole Thing Down
    Your Whole System Down
    Yeah I’m Bringing
    The Whole House Down
    The Whole, Yeah Even The Burning Flag
    Bring This House Down

    I Didn’t Start This War,
    But It’s Already Ended
    For You Should
    Have Opened Your Eyes
    As You Didn’t Even Know It
    Know That
    It Was Always In My Bag

    We Ain’t Scared Of Any Truth
    We Ain’t Scared Of Your Monkey Police
    Ain’t Scared Of Your Media
    Yeah We're Just Not Scared
    Of Monkeys
    Or Any Dark Charades
    Like You, Even If You're In The Sun
    Watch The Dominoes Fall
    One By One
    Until They Destroy Your Fun

    We All Gave You A Chance
    A Chance To Back Away
    But No Real Listening
    On Your End
    I’m Afraid, So I’m
    Gunna Bring The Whole Lot Down
    Today, Not Tomorrow
    – The House Is Down

    I’m Not Scared Of Your Drugs
    I’m Not Scared Of Your Hugs
    Not Scared Of Your Head
    Nothing Left In There
    Nothing Left To Be Said
    Not Scared Of Anything
    Cause I’m Dead To You –
    And Always Have Been
    You Just Got No F$%#ING Idea
    What I’ve Seen

    Are You A Puppet?
    Are You A Muppet?

    Which One Is It - Cause
    I Can Still See Those Skeletons
    Falling Out Of Your Closet
    Even Out Of Your Drawer
    While The Monkey Is Still Latched
    Tight, Watch Out For His Bite
    Latched Right On To Your Back
    And I Bet You, - You Are Sore

    The House Is Down
    Your House Is Down
    Which One Is It?
    Cause I Don’t Really Care If
    This Song’s
    Not A Hit
    Cause This Isn’t Music
    And I’m Not A Band
    Just Five Middle Fingers
    On My Mother F%$#@ING Hand

    I Know We’ll Be Just Fine
    It’s Just Our Turn To Shine
    Never Be Blind
    Never Be Left Behind
    Yeah Never Be Left Behind Again

    The Calm Is Still Coming
    But There Is No More
    Yeah There Is No More Running Away

    Yeah, Just Let Us Live & Die Our Own Way


    So I’m Calling You All
    Calling The Unforgiven
    Don’t You
    Yeah Don’t You Ever Go
    And Give Up On Your Life
    Cause This Is Far From Over
    You’ll Always Have A Shoulder
    To Bare The Weight

    Live My Life
    Yeah, No More Lies,
    Yeah No More Cries
    Just Want To Live
    Yeah Just Want To Live My Life Again

    One More Round?– I’m Glad It’s Over
    One Last Round?– A Bit One Sided
    If You Ask Me
    One Last Round?
    You Were Never A Real Threat
    Never Considered An Adversary

    One Last Round?
    Couldn’t Be Bothered
    Just A Waste Of Time And Energy
    Your Plight Was Over – Before It Began
    You Never Had A Chance From The Start
    This Is Why You Ran
    Now It’s Time To Say Goodnight
    Time To Say Goodbye
    Right From My Heart

    A Brisk Walk
    Midnight on a winding street
    air still as the grave
    no danger lurking
    no signs of wake

    You swagger on
    gingerly to the left
    then suddenly—
    a hand is in your hand
    hot breath against your cheek
    a whisper in your ear:

    “My love, my light
    come lie with me.
    We'll meet at great new heights
    where you will be set free
    from hands that bind
    to a land of bliss,
    so you won't but mind
    as you float down the abyss.”

    With no note of dissent
    no sigh, no frown, nor shake
    you are whisked away,
    taking steady steps and deep breaths
    to the hole where you shall lay.

    When finally you do arrive
    you're beckoned to lie down
    you stumble in, burrowing
    careful not to make a sound.

    Morning comes, but not the sun,
    Eyes search, but nothing found.
    Hands grasp at dirt, nails rake on stone
    at this new burial ground.

    Screaming does no good
    nor fight, nor will, nor pain
    you are here and here for good
    because doth wed the night
    and the night doth betrayed.

    “Away now morning light,
    Farewell bitter day!
    Soon we will reunite,
    perhaps from inner fray.
    So beat your drums,
    grapple in spite,
    measure your sums.
    Forget this little slight,
    For tomorrow comes! ”

    So lie down,
    calm, secure
    make most of this fine bed
    you've dug yourself out of
    time and time again.

[Hata Bildir]
