Biography of Robert Mahoney
My name is Robert Mahoney, and I write songs. Lots of songs. All kinds of songs. I love music and I love to write, and when music and lyrics meet and become one, the result is amazingly beautiful. All music has beauty, even the music I may not necessarily like. You'll come to see that I write not only from personal experience, though that is where most of my material comes from, but also from the issues of the world and other things that affect other people. Music is communication at a higher level. I aim to one day reach the masses with a heavenly cacophony of the most striking and awe inspiring chords and quality. Join me in my journey. You just might be amazed.
Music is Chaotic Divinity

Robert Mahoney Poems
Fighting The 'Good Fight'
Here we go again; another lie, another day gone by Without you by my side Every now and then, a mother cries, another child dies Fighting the 'good fight'
Shifting in and out in constant change From black to white and back again So hard to guess whom next you'll be So unpredictable unpredictable, my Gemini
Tick tock the clock, don't talk, don't stop Pace quickens into overdrive Shake off the shock, No care, no thought The rhythmic pounding clears the mind
A Moment To Last A Lifetime
The sun has set in the western sky And the moon with it's silver shine Begins it's trek across the night To mark the passing time
Pretty Pills & Promises
We have come to rely too heavily On pretty pills and promises That no one ever keeps Breaking down defenses with
Fade To Broken Whispers
It's cold outside and loneliness spans the rain-drenched miles Shallow footsteps break the silence of the night Empty eyes are left behind the shadow of a smile Thoughts are focused on a single question: Why?
Out Of Sight
Out of Sight I.... could've sworn i heard the calling
Empty Eyes On A Blank Face
Empty Eyes on a Blank Face You wear your pain upon your face for all to see and you wonder why i ask if you're alright you dry your eyes each time before you look at me
Fall From Grace
Time and time again i trusted you I put my faith in you, each time you let me down Over and over, you fed me countless lies Over and over you made me wonder why i even tried
I have not yet come to terms with this Toss one back and drift in sleeplessness One more drink, to cover up the pain That's all this is
The Only Beast Out Here Is You
You throw on the floor what you don't need anymore And toss them like a stone, never mind the broken bones. Justify the senseless death with a false sense of accomplishment, You found a way to turn blood gold, murder’s always best served cold
Have you ever looked in the mirror Expecting to see yourself reflected in the glass But a glossy-eyed surprise, a face you just don't recognize Stands there mocking, staring back
I am so sick of all your sh*t You've never known when you should quit I've taken your abuse for so long But you've gone too far this time, I'm through
Angel And The Drowning Man
Every second passed without you here Is a second spent in vain Though logic tells me you're not near I feel you just the same
afraid to let her go lest she disappear
he's holding on so tight it's bruising her
she's crying out but he doesn't seem to hear
he tries to save it but he only makes it worse
the more he holds on the more she pushes away
and she's leaving because he can't see
that his grip on her won't let her breathe
she still loves him but it's not enough
