It's not invisible; it's plain to see From your rose bud smile And true the evidence it shines from me In romantic style We're not ashamed to let the whole world know This is who we are Profess our love for all eternity Whether near or far And I will cleave to you And you will cleave to me And though we're drifting in the stream of time Being pulled along We've tied a knot that no one can unwind Cause it's just too strong We'll let the current take us out to sea Cause we've made a vow Forever two as one and friends we'll be We'll make it work somehow And I will cleave to you And you will cleave to me And we will stick forever Lose ourselves between each other Through thin and any weather We will will always be together Now we have proven one and one makes three Added to our fold It's made us young as anyone can be As we're growing old We may not know just what the future brings Be it good or bad To keep our promise we'll do everything We'll give it all we have And I will cleave to you And you will cleave to me

And I find You're wrong No matter what you say You can try To explain You're stupid either way Can you hear The sound Of echoes in your head? It's hard to believe You get around With the IQ of bread It's obscene So obscene You make me sick You make me sad Open your mouth It makes me mad I don't wanna hear Another thought you've had So shut your mouth And I try so hard To ignore To look the other way Cause I've been told It's not your fault That you were born that way But when I think of how You and your spawn Could fill the earth I have to think it's a crime For your mom To have given birth It's obscene So obscene Your mind's a brick Without the mass And you're as thick As space is vast And I'm ashamed Each time I face We both are of The human race You make me sick You make me sad Open your mouth It drives me mad I don't wanna hear A word you want to add So shut your mouth It's obscene So obscene

And I saw all of the works that were done under the sun, and look - everything was vanity, and a striving after wind.

There's something in the way you look at me When anger sets your passion free That it seems so strange to realize All the depth within the soul behind those eyes Time is on your side So leave those memories behind And I will always try To make those memories unwind And that's not to say you'll ever be Able to cleanse your memory But given time you'll realize All the pleasant thoughts won't let The old ones rise Time is on your side So leave those memories behind And I will always try To make those memories unwind And they keep coming back Those thoughts of loss and pain Don't let them turn the tide You never fight in vain Cause I'll be by your side To make it right again And your time will come Time is on your side So leave those memories behind And I will always try To make those memories unwind And I am on your side So live each memory you find And I will always try To make those memories be kind

Sometimes we are drowning in the water And sometimes we are swimming to the shore If we could only get a little rhythm Then neither would be drowning anymore Sometimes we are sailing on the water And sometimes we are falling overboard If we see the storms before we falter Then maybe we can make it to the shore I want to swim to your island of love I want to eat the fruit and drink from the sweet sweet springs And if we send out a dove I know we will be happy with the branch it brings Sometimes we are full of love and laughter And sometimes we are venom to the core If we can just remember what we're after Then neither would be hurting anymore I want to swim to your island of love I want to eat the fruit and drink from the sweet sweet springs And if we end up in love I know we will be happier than anything

Cause if this is a lie You know it will break the spell That love has over me And I guess it's just as well Cause what you feel inside You know it must be real Don't take me for a ride Leave me crushed beneath the wheel Cause if it's a lie Please let me know Cause I won't die, at least I I don't think so I hope you realize What all this really means The pain I have inside From what you've done behind the scenes I know it isn't right To feel the way I feel But with my back turned to the lies The dagger's thrust is all to real Cause if it's a lie Please let me know Cause I won't die, at least I I don't think so

Ate my cake and had it too Sent for more, what else to do Sick inside with gluttony Find myself despising me Forfeits ending every game I Treason against my own name Too much time is on my hands But I still Wonder where I lost the sands I'm counting down Just to make the moment tense I'm counting down Til the numbers make no sense And counting down I'm no longer needed here So I'm counting down Who I am until I'm zero Until I'm zero 8 more years of wasted life 7 months since loss of wife 6 weeks 'til not mail arrives 5 days stretched out like five lives 4 hours since I've moved at all 3 minutes on a prank phone call 2 seconds of time I won't give 1 moment more is too much to live I'm counting down Til the numbers make no sense I'm counting down Just to make the moment tense And counting down I'm no longer needed here So I'm counting down Who I am until I'm zero Counting down Just to make the moment tense I'm counting down Sitting on life's broken fence Just counting down The only thing I have to fear is Counting down Who I am until I'm zero Until I'm zero

When you feel alone inside I will be with you And when your eyes are full of tears I will sing to you You have been summertime Till your autumn spills like rain In winter snow since long ago I have been your spring again When you feel alone inside I will be with you And when your eyes are full of fear I will sing to you And I dream of a time When your eyes don't hold such pain But letting go is hard, I know So I hold you close again Till morning comes I will hold you tight Come winters dawn I will melt the ice Through the snow Through the rain And when it pours You know that I will be there

You tell her it's all right Before you kiss her head goodnight But the truth is daddy isn't coming home You tell yourself this you must do When you kill them and they kill you Still the truth is daddy isn't coming home Your enemy so far away Says my sweet boy I'll be OK I promise you that I am coming home But the bullets do not care which way they fly They're killing either way In the end a daddy isn't coming home

An August moon next to the sun would look so pale But soon the night will overcome and tell it's tale You had the choice to take a stand, to live, to follow through You lost your voice when they demanded that you speak what's true So it's not for you The tiny eyes of mole-ish men won't help them in the day When dawn has come, what kind of eyes have you within their sway There's still the hope, but you refuse to do what you should do You chose to grope in darkness while a bitter price is due So it's not for you So when your sky turns darkest black and drains of ocean blue You will not sail your vessel back because you have no crew (Do you regret that you said) It's not for you

Are you proud Of your life's achievement? You've been sitting there In your underwear You've allowed Your standards to falter Like you'd even care Will you ever care? And when you lay your head to sleep You count a dozen lazy sheep And make a plan for nothing the next day So you finally close your eyes The days events to memorize But in your mind there's nothing there to stay Are you proud That your parents still love you? Kept that roof above you 'Till your forty five Hang around In your room in the cellar There's a funny smell there Are you still alive? When you finally go outside You look so pale that children hide You go to town to find a game to play A girl you once knew passes by By miracle you catch her eye But in your mind ther's nothing there to say Are you proud Of your future uncertain? When you part the curtain, is the view sublime? You've allowed Your whole life to falter Offered at the altar of wasted time Are you proud...? How could you be?

Time may open up your mind What will we see indside your mind Your life you've always tried to hide It's buried deep inside your mind And we will find you there What will we find in there Time is broken and unkind Sometimes it's hard to find your mind And lies will be a thin disguise For things that you despise in your mind And we will find you there If you will lead us there Time has opened up your mind
