Lost In The Eclectic

Wrong Turn At The Mad Sun

 

I see

Trouble on the horizon

We

Took a wrong turn

 

I see

The Mad Sun is arising

We

Took a wrong turn

 

Ooo ooo ooo

I fought the best I could (2x)

But we took a wrong turn

 

I see

The bad things sneakin’ up behind me

 we

Left at the Wrong Turn

I see

That when you circle the earth

You’ll wind up right back where you were

 

Ooo ooo ooo

I fought the best I could (2x)

But we took a wrong turn

Said we took a wrong turn
 

Dusk Walk

 

Make new friends but keep the old.

One is silver and the other’s gold.

It’s a sin to be this bold.

Cash my chips in and fold.

 

It can’t be bought and can’t be sold.

Dreadful sight to behold.

Head on fire but hands are cold.

Can’t be learned and can’t be told.

oooo

 

If you got a truth to bend

Then I’ve got an ear to lend.

Fact and fiction tend to blend.

It makes my case hard to defend.

 

I take a Dusk Walk and hide

Between the day and night.

I grip a stick of dynamite,

A short fuse to ignite.

oooo

Twice as nice

I wanna give in to another vice

What is left and what is right?

Outta mind and outta sight.

Twice as nice.

Climb inside and have another bite.

Can you read between the lines?

Take a risk and pick from the vine.

 

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil.

Shoulda known he would not level with me. (2x)

 

Devil would not level with me

Devil

He wouldn't level
 

Reap What You Sow

 

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil,

Dressed in such distracting clothes.

He never fails takin’ the wind from my sails

And then grounding me on the shore.

Ah ooos

 

And it doesn’t take long

When I summon him with my song.

He can’t help but do favors for himself

So this time I’ll string him along.

 

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?

Will you only go as high as you go low?

Throw it underground and you let it grow.

Reap what you sow.

Yes reap what you sow.

 

It’s a tale told time and again:

“You only get what you put in.”

So if you’re only willing to pretend,

Who are you, then, in the end?

 

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil

Shoulda known he would not level with me, no (2x)

 

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?

Will you only go as high as you go low?

Throw it underground and you let it grow.

Reap what you sow.

Yes reap what you sow.
 

Get The Hell Away!

 

Don’t mix your medicines

Those chemicals, they don’t blend quite right.

Go take an Ambien, sit next to me

Try to stay up all night

 

I don’t know where that dirty mouth’s been

So why do I keep on kissin’ those lips?

I un-cast my spell

I wish you well

Would ya get a grip?

 

Now would you get a grip?

Go on now, get a grip.

 

You’re guilt personified

And she’s your doubt walkin’ on two legs

I should have known better than to think that I could get away unscathed

 

I am still surfacing in wakes of you lyin’ waves

But when I reach the shore, gonna catch my breath, gonna yell

“No more! Get the hell away!”

 

Now would you get the hell away?

Go on now, get the hell away!

 

Now I ride on a carousel

A dizzy spell, go on and bend my eyes

A blurry vision caused a collision of epic size

Scars were well earned

Suspicions all confirmed

That just like playing with fire:

Love a known liar

And you’re gonna get burned.

 

Now would you get the hell away?

Go on now, get the hell away!


 

And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river.

But what good, what good could you do?

And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river.

But what good, what good, what good, what good are you?


 

Entitled.
 

Pleasure to watch my hands shake

Pleasure to make the mistake

Of always wanting more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

Pleasure to hear my voice quake.

Limit to my intake

Is always want to more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

I want more.

 

I always love a challenge.

Finding ways to balance

The need of wanting more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

It’s a pleasure to take one more step

Closer to the edge

And then taking one more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.

I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me.

 

I always love a challenge.

Finding ways to balance

The need of wanting more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

 

Pleasure to not feel worthless

When I find the purpose

For always wanting more and more and more

And more.


 

It’s one to wake up bright

Two for an appetite

Three for the pressure

Four for the pain

Five to stand steady

Six for my step

And seven to get ready

For eight pounding my head

And it’s nine to stay alive

When I close my eyes.

Ten to give in to waking life again

Oh how did I get us into this mess that we’re in?

I need to learn to say “when”.

 

Oh when

 

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.

I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me

How many can I swallow before they find me?

There’s no use running when machines are after me. (3x)

You Don’t Know What You’re Missin’

Someone is sleeping on the job,

Sucking up all of my lost time.

Another clock to unwind.

If I only had a dime for every time

 

I looked back:

Nothin’ good to see,

But the makings of a better me.

I got by by the skin of my teeth.

I flee the scene and now I’m free.

 

Ohhhooo oohhhh

 

Keep up!

Don’t you fall behind.

Nasty knots to untie like

Cigarettes and cheap wine

Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine.

 

Dogs of doubt, don’t you see?

You’re barking up the wrong tree.

Don’t you point the finger at me.

You better wise up cuz your time is up.
 

Dive in deeper

Sink right in.

Come a little closer

To the edge.

Oh well it’s such a shame:

You only wanna play that game.

Baby I don’t play that way

You’re not competition

I’m already winning.

You don’t know what you’re missing.

 

Keep up!

Don’t you fall behind.

Nasty knots to untie like

Cigarettes and cheap wine

Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine.

 

Dogs of doubt, don’t you see?

You’re barking up the wrong tree.

Don’t you point the finger at me.

You better wise up cuz your time is up.

 

 

Dive in deeper

Sink right in.

Come a little closer

To the edge.

Oh well it’s such a shame:

You only wanna play that game.

Baby I don’t play that way

You’re not competition

I’m already winning.

You don’t know what you’re missing.

 

 

. . . You don’t know what you’re missing.
 

Off With My Head!!!

I stumbled and I fumbled down the rabbit hole.

I tried to solve my problems through a keyhole.

Why only settle

For a potion that would make me small?

When it is not like

This place makes any sense at all.

 

What do you want?

Please don’t bother me.

Oh no I don’t wanna.

So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.

 

Curious!

I can’t quite see through your smoky rings.

You’re foolin’ me.

So nothing’s really want it seems.

You’re killing me!

Or am I about to lose my head?

Oh now where you goin’?

If you go This way I’ll get That instead.

Now stay away!

You are gettin’ in my precious way.

I cannot play.

I am late for an important date.

Does it even matter

If the roses are white or red?

Oh now where you goin?

If you go up then I’ll go down instead.

 

 

What do you want?

Please don’t bother me!

Oh no I don’t wanna!

So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.

And I’ll close my blinds.

Yes I’ll stay in bed.

Oh well I was once a lunatic

And I’m about to lose my head (3x)

 

What do you want?

Please don’t bother me!

Oh no I don’t wanna!

So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.

And I’ll close my blinds.

Yes I’ll stay in bed.

I tell you, I was once a lunatic

And I’m about to lose my head (3x)

 

I’m goin down, down, down.

And I’m about to lose my head

 

Mad Moonset

Where the Mad Moon sets over and over again, I see.
