EP: SHOT AT THE MOON
 
This Is Where We Meet
 
This is where we meet,
Where no one can see
This is where we meet,
Just you and me
This is where we hide,
Where we lay in shame
This is where we meet,
Where we share our blame
 
This is where we meet,
Under rainbow’s end
Treasure and despair
So neatly blend
And time stands still
When we’re arching up in pain
When the waters part
Only to swallow us again
 
This is where we meet,
This is where we part
This is where we play
Dirty Hold’em with our hearts
This is where we meet
This is where we start
And it’s a long, long long way down
When you’re falling apart
 
This is where we dwell
Wrapped up in our sin
This is where we count
The blessings that could have been
This is where we tear
Our flesh apart
And we don’t even know
How much we’ve been scarred
 
This is where we meet
This is where we burn
The good deeds in our life
At every turn
Who’s a thief and who’s a saint
Someone asked someday
It’s for this sliver of life that we
So dearly have to pay
 
Trapped in’a cage of lust
‘Till we break or we bend
If the feeling’s so strong  
Why should we make amends
I should look for redemption
But I can’t let it go
My will just melts away
Like early summer’s snow
 
This is where we meet
As trouble lights grow dim
Our secret temple shakes
While we sing our hymns
Two rivers that will flow
Meeting only underneath
And then come up for air
To die in this barren heath
 
This is where we meet
This is where we killed
The remnants
Of hearts we could have filled
And we burn our souls
Between heaven and earth
In this flame of love and pain
We end our love in vain ….
And then we start again
 
Shot At The Moon

Well, I’m waiting for this train to come in
While the wind’s cutting through my face
I warm myself by mixing milk and gin
As I try to jump out of this rat race
 
Winter marches in to a steady beat
And the night stumbles in to a glorious morning
This room smells of sin and past deceit
While I sit here ignoring same old warnings
 
Take a shot at the moon
In the darkest night
But if I get it right
If I get it right
 
Enough bad odds and bookies with a vengeance
Say goodbye to all these haunted halls
Gotta get out of this place, done did my penance
All the crutches I been trustin’ let me fall
 
When I leave I ain’t gonna send ya’ any postcard
I ain’t gonna check my rearview mirror
And I know I’ll be crawling ‘till that last yard
My fateful lot is drawn and getting clearer
 
I took a shot at the moon
In the darkest night
If I get it right
If I get it right
I’ll be fine
‘Till the end of my life
If I get it right
If I get it right
 
Gabriel’s horn will ring out my salvation
And your words wilI no longer torture me
Endless springs will flow when I leave the station
Finally the captive will be free
 
Bleeding time on this red letter day
The waiting is shaking me up top to bottom
Born to leave, nothing could make me stay
Knuckles white and veins alive and crimson
 
I’ll take a shot at the moon
In the darkest night
If I get it right
If I get it right
If I make it through
To the end of the night
If I get it right
Will I see the light?
 
Took a shot at the moon
In the darkest night
If I get it right
If I get it right
When the light comes through
It will shine so bright
If I get it right
If I get it right, if I get it right ….
 
My Lover’s Eyes
 
My lover’s eyes are nothing like the sun
They’re dark and fleeting like thief on the run
I like to gaze at them when I feel down
My lover’s eyes are nothing like the sun
 
My lover moves light and sure
When I come in through her darkened door
When I lay down on the floor
My body aches but my flesh wants more
 
Those yonder skies that shine through
This gray day’s morning dew
I can see her soul when she cries
If I look into my lover’s eyes
 
And when the night comes down
And I’ve been wandering ‘round town
My instinct tamed when I hear that sound
When my lover’s call comes around
 
And when those feelings come through
I find myself staring back at you
It’s no matter I’d pay any price
To gaze into my lover’s eyes.
 
My lover’s eyes are nothing like the sun
But that’s what I search for when the day is done
And they dance like a river, I’d find my soul baptized
When I look into, yeah I look into
When I look into my lover’s eyes
 
Underwater
 
I’m standing here with silly hopes
And all these hollow dreams
I’m pretty good at hidin' fear
Things are never what they seem
Baby I got a burning desire
Now I can't tell right from wrong
To put my hand into your fire
Been frozen way too long
 
You don’t want me to put it out
Are you afraid a' consequence
Of laying bare with all your doubt
Showing cracks along your fence
You been knived a thousand times
In the back of your mind
When you look into your mirror
Babe, I know you see the signs
 
Innocence you lost
Faith you never knew
The pain to keep it in
Another exit calling you
 
It’s so hard not to tell you I love you
I know you’re freightened by this
Underwater the sky looks so distant
But it never really is …never really is
 
Yeah my heart is so impure
Mishandled for too long
Battered and bruised and used
I can’t be saved with a song
I don’t need a new addiction
Tripped down that road before
Just crave a true connection
To get through this narrow door
 
And you have secrets no one knows
I’ll cherish every one
Babe I will take it slow
I’ll caress your wandrin’ soul
 
It’ so hard not tell you I love you
When I just want to shout
Your eyes are the very thing
I can’t do without
 
It’s so hard not tell you I love you
And not to see what is true
All our running around
Has only brought you here to me and me to you
 
It’s so hard not tell you I love you
And I hope you can see
Reach out and take my hand
When you can barely breathe
 
It’s so hard not to tell you I love you
And I know that you’re scared
Underwater you may not see the sky
But it’s still there,
Yeah it’s still there
 
YOU LET ME DOWN
 

Was my long-lost dream
The world could end it seemed
You took all that I could give
Wheels are spinning fast
The hole is dark and vast
Where my soul used to live
 
Once looked into your eyes
Chills and lullabies
Promised we were heaven bound
The curtains dropped on you
Ripped the magic through
The stage is burning to the ground
 
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
 
Took me years to build
Bone and brick and still
It was my refuge and my cell
Didn’t give a damn
It was no master plan
Bespoke and tailor-made in hell
Yeah….
 
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
…………
 
Baby, help me break these shackles
Baby I can’t bear the pain
This old fear I need to tackle
And find myself again
‘Cause I don’t know who I’ve been
Since ….
 
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down (you let me down)
You let me down, you gave up on me
………
 
Tell me where it hurts
I been there before
Don’t wanna dance on your grave
Or settle any score
I want you to know
I want you to know
 
ADDICTED TO YOUR LOVE
 
When I wake up in the morning
My senses caught on fire
I wander through my mind
An acrobat on a wire
When I lay down at night
Staring at the ceiling
In the dark I make no sound
I just listen to your breathing
 
I’m addicted to this love
I am chained to this cross
That I bear with no remorse
While I wander, while I’m lost
I’m addicted to this love
It’s shaking up my brain
Its hot white stream of lies
Shooting right into my veins
 
I’m addicted to your scorn
It makes me feel alive
When search for you at night
In every hole, in every dive
And I feel like a dog
That gets beaten every day
I still wonder if you’re coming home
Once again to make me pay
 
I’m addicted to this love
You look at me and laugh
You tease me like a fool
Like a lash across my back
I’m addicted to this love
I might go insane
If you don’t come home tonight
And pour salt on my wounds again
 
I keep the light alive, keep the light alive, keep the lie alive
And I know, I know it’s not enough
Burning down my life, burning down my life, burning down my life
But you know, you know it feels so right
 
Been staying up all night
Lookin’ out at the street
To sheds a fading light
On the love that’s strangles me
 
I’m addicted to this love
There’s nothing I can do
You roll me like a stone
I get bloody, black and blue
I’m addicted to this love
I am chained here to this sand
That slips right through my hand
Praying you show up again
 
JERICHO’S FALL
 
Jericho’s crumbling ‘neath the wheels of sun
Under the moon that’s in your heart
I’m not here to weasel my way in
Or tear your lungs apart
 
Dynamite Frisbee, Cold War Games
And other curiosities
I’m not here to find what’s right or wrong
In the cracks of humanity
 
Just let me play
One more time again
To the sound of destiny
 
Down the path of rock and knife
Down the empty slide
The horse that I rode in on
Wondered off into the night
 
Endless beauty of winter
That’s your biggest enemy
When flooding dreams of springtime
Are passing through your sky
 
Odds are stacked when
Wings are cracked and
All you wanna do is fly ….
 
Pidgeon-holes and worn-out souls
It isn’t hard to do
Seasons come and then they go
You just find your own way through
 
To the other side
In the grip of time
Where you and I can’t fly…
Tonight … no more
Tonight we can’t fly no more.
