Bliss 03:45
my father and my mother they raised me so well that I don't need to nor do I wan't to raise any hell life is a chance you shouldn't miss if you eat right and sleep right it's bliss my brother my dear brother he put me through hell yet I trust him yet I love him I think that he is swell life is a chance you shouldn't miss if you eat right and sleep right it's bliss and if I fall out of grace I'll remember the place where I used to be and land on my feet life is a chance you shouldn't miss if you eat right and sleep right it's bliss
2.
from now on it's all out war trying to make a sound out of beliefs in which I ground what tells me what is wrong in this picture, in this song about soul, and where I long right when you can't turn around it's there I won't believe in them or at least I won't care right when you can't turn around it's there I won't believe in them and for sure I won't care about this breath of gold of letting myself go of silence and rain sunshine and someone to hold coming back to expect more out of who I've known myself to be, a sickling gone to the other side of right for this I will fight and it won't end this night right when you can't turn around it's there I won't believe in them or at least I won't care right when you can't turn around it's there I won't believe in them and for sure I won't care about this breath of gold of letting myself go of silence and rain sunshine and someone to hold
3.
when you were down you asked will you help me my friend then I said I'm not your friend, I'm your soulmate then I said I'm not your friend, I'm your lover but you said you can crawl through shit but you will never fit in to my life you can try hard but you'll never have my heart because it is mine then you grew old and in your sickness and health you felt lost and alone then you said I'm not your friend, I'm your soulmate then you said I'm not your friend, I'm your lover but I said I did crawl through shit but you said I don't fit in to your life I did try hard I could have given my heart but now I don't give a damn

walking home to melt my face I wrote a song a rock n roll song at home in the shower I sang a song a rock n roll song whatever you say will prevail after all I was wet and happy that's why I sang a rock n roll song whatever you say will prevail
5.
there will be no rain cloud hanging where we've been around there will be no sound banging our eardrums so loud cos nothing here will remain and nothing here will have a chance to withstand the blow so be glad if you don't care about anyone and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be oh no there will be no doubt of who is who and who's the ground around there will echo no shout out of the heretic mouth cos nothing here will remain and nothing here will have chance to withstand the blow so be glad if you don't care about anyone and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be oh who you're trying to be to withstand the blow so be glad if you don't care about anyone and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be oh who you're trying to be oh no
6.
all these so called graces are wrapped in faces I don't know lucky I know yours so all these faces I don't know seem so lame in comparison oh they do seem so lame in comparison I'm running away from deep traces of all the unknown faces I'm running away from deep traces all I taste is wrapped in faces I don't know lucky I know yours so all these faces I don't know seem so lame in comparison oh they do seem so lame in comparison I'm running away from deep traces of all the unknown faces I'm running away from deep traces oh they do seem so lame in comparison
7.
I walk out the door a smell makes me adore the rain on this day I remember the way you explained and hey today we'll fall we'll crawl but hey today we're also more than we can know I step on the ground I say it out loud the rain on this day I'm scared come what may so I say and hey today we'll fall we'll crawl but hey today we're also more than we can know I'll make things right by leaving tomorrow and hey today we'll fall we'll crawl but hey today we're also more than we can know
8.
I dug a hole 04:24
drawing pictures of my dreams is like carving dead old trees the faint smell of sawn off wood to stop dreaming I think I should cos all I care of is going to hell in those dreams from what I can tell cos in those dreams I've been lost just like a seed on rock solid ground where nothing grows for crying out loud and I try to merge with the ground some time ago it was not like this then with madness I shared a kiss I lost control of my poor soul to be exact I dug a hole where I sit and ponder like hell about those dreams of which I tell cos in those dreams I've been lost just like a seed on rock solid ground where nothing grows for crying out loud it sure is hard being asleep cos I've been lost just like a seed on rock solid ground where nothing grows for crying out loud picture me with you does it hurt your brain too? does it seem insane to say I'd be a father one day? I don't think I ever will not because I lack the skill but because I'm all messed up hanging around just to rot
9.
I've built my home on solid ground still I'm afraid I'm so afraid that I say I will not change in any single way even if you smite me down Lord I will not change I've built my home on solid ground still I'm afraid I'm so afraid that I say I will not change in any single way even if you smite me down Lord I will not change I won't change my faith I won't let go this grace cos in your hands my Lord I can't say I've ever been afraid I won't let go this grace I won't grow out this phase cos in your hands my Lord I can't say I've ever been afraid I've built my home on solid ground still I'm afraid I'm so afraid that I say I will not change in any single way even if you smite me down Lord I will not change
10.
hit the brakes and stop this moment the blood on my face is getting cold and I've never been so happy and I've never seen such light in my life this is what I have been waiting for a long time oh how I taste my withering soul and oh how I feel more and more and my every single cell is now on fire I've lost control I think it's my time this is what I have been waiting for a long time now everything I've said is long forgotten everything I've done is long forgotten everything I've been is long forgotten my every single sin is long forgotten this is what I have been waiting for a long time
