Martyrs 

 

I know your hunger now. 

Its your prerogative 

so scary now. 

Because you 

Because you. 

Are the one that loses. 

I was longing to know your ways. 

I was trying to throw you away. 

I was trying to give you everything. 

Trying to give you away. 

Takes you to know what your going for. 

And going through. 

I’m not the one 

who wanted you to die. 

I only wanted you to know that I know who you are. 

I’m not the one 

who’s going to cry for you. 

No I won’t cry for you. 

Because you weren’t and now you are. 

I’ve been everywhere. 

I’ve been the star. 

I’ve been the lonely man. 

The one no one ever saw. 

But should have.

Promise of Eternal Lust

 

Says he’s not taken Ritalin 

The change is so far good 

Says she’s just a stripper 

Nothing in you what to do 

Why don’t you see my answer 

I wrote it on the kitchen floor 

So your wounded 

Pretended loving heroin is gold 

Well hows it going 

You’ve got your ash to ashes 

Take it whether theres real pain 

Is it running you now 

Is it running you now 

See what you do 

So you get yourself in the basket 

Waiting for the right place to fall 

Get yourself in on some sin 

The martyrs come and clean up the floor 

I was thinking you would be there 

I was thinking you were to hunt and kill 

I was thinking you would be there 

What else uses charm 

Take it to the other side 

Take it to the other side 

Is this his soul 

Its soldier up 

 and don’t give up 

You are going to do it too every day 

Dont give up.dont give up 

You’ve got everything to prove 

Theres nothing to gain 

All I can say is your going to be ok 

Or your not.or your not

Sukanquit 

 

Somethings got a hold of me 

so tight it won’t let go. 

Itty bitty little pieces of you’r broken heart 

As you throw them back down on the floor. 

everytime I think of what you give 

I feel like I’ve been raped in my head. 

I been thinking about love with you 

Is late nights with my hand in the bathroom. 

And knowing you makes me feel a lot better about the things I hate in myself 

Because your so fucked in the head. 

Whats wrong with you. 

You said you were my friend. 

you said you were my friend you like to sukanquit. 

You suck and you quit. 

Everyday you wonder 

every night you plunder 

Someone else soul 

Someone else life 

What kind of crazy asshole are you. 

Itty bitty pieces as they fall on my lap 

I think about killing you. 

Chop you into pieces and grind 

it into the earth 

 to make some glue 

Well,I think it would stick to you. 

Sucking it up

One More Minute (Away) 

I feel so alone. 

Its so lonely here in space. 

Not at all grounded. 

Vacant are my thoughts alone. 

I hope I can make it. 

away. 

I see nothing clearly now. 

Its so empty in this room. 

Not at all happy, 

but then again I’m thinking of you. 

Hold on for one more day. 

hold on for one more minute. 

Hold on for one more hour. 

Than again another day. 

Away 

Away from you. 

Away from all I know. 

It just can’t be still. 

I am. 

I feel so alone. 

Its so lonely here in space. 

Not at all grounded. 

Vacant are my thoughts alone. 

I hope I can make it. 

away. 

Away from you. 

Away from all I know. 

It just can’t be still. 

Away far from up a hill. 

If you could change me. 

We wouldn’t be forced away.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Song Without Words 

 

I lost my head. 

dropped the magic and got so deep in it. 

I picture everything. 

I wish sometimes I couldn’t see the things I see. 

What would it be like to walk around blind like most do. 

I guess I’ll never know. 

Give me more days like this. 

Give me more days of this 

Give me two days of this 

Don’t care which ones just give me it. 

Oh so deep in myself 

I spin tragic 

I know you can’t so don’t try to handle it. 

Its simply fun for me. 

It belongs and it beckons me. 

Can you see who I am yet. 

Do you know who I am? 

Do you know what I am? 

Do you know who I am? 

Give me more days of this 

Give me two days of it 

I wish this time you went away 

I wish you’d go insane from peeking into my head. 

I dropped the magic 

And now I release it to you. 

I lost my head. 

dropped the magic and got so deep in it. 

I picture everything. 

I wish sometimes I couldn’t see the things I see. 

What would it be like to walk around blind like most do. 

I guess I’ll never know. 

Give me more days like this. 

Give me more days of this 

Give me two days of this 

Don’t care which ones just give me it.

BREAKING 

 

DO NOT SAY NOTHING 

DO YOU FEEL STRANGE 

LIFES MANY HAPPINGS HAS TORN US AWAY. 

I FELT STRONG IVE NEVR FELT AS WEAK AS NOW. 

BECAUSE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHNG HAS TAKEN ME ON. 

ITS ANOTHER DAY IN ME 

YOU CANT FIND IT WHAT YOU NEED. 

IF YOU WANT IT YOU CAN HAVE IT 

BUT IT ALL COMES DOWN TO ME. 

THERE WAS SO MANY HATE SCARS 

MESSAGE FROM THE DOCTOR 

TAKE IT ALL DOWN 

THAT WAS A TRIP 

VERBALIZING EVERYTHING FROM THE HIP 

PSYCHIATRY TRICK 

NO BIG DEAL 

NO BIG DEAL. 

EVERY PICTURE THAT I EVER SAVED 

MAKES A TEAR ON MY FACE TODAY. 

I LIVE AT NIGHT AND SLEEP BY DAY AND EVERYONE STILL GETS IN THE WAY. 

YOU KNOW WHAT I WANT 

YOU KNOW WHAT I NEED 

BUT YOU STILL BOTHERING ME. 

SEND IN A CLOWN. 

SEND IN THE CLOWN SEND IN THE CLOWN

PRAYING MANTIS 

 

Its so beautiful so beautiful it even glows 

So tasty so good for me so good but its just what I think I need NO. 

Its the heat the needle as it lets go 

Into you into trouble I already know 

Am I real for what you have in store 

So ready so ready for you NO 

So dangerous but I think I already know. 

My instincts I have not yet fed. 

I can only eat you one time 

Than I will be dead.than I will be dead. 

So praying on me. 

Its no use for us to act like its unknown 

Once we give in both of know 

It will be like heaven than no more no more 

Dead 

Off with my head off with the head 

I THINK I’M READY NOW 

I THINK I’M READY NOW 

I THINK I COULDNT GET MORE FRUSTRATED THAN THIS 

I THINK I’M READY NOW 

MAYBE OH MAYBE JUST ONE KISS !!??

---------------------------------------------------------

 

lyrics by Stephen Trip 

 

As This All Dies 

 

Theres nothing wrong 

Theres nothing at all wrong. 

I’ve said it before.i’ll say it again. 

I close my heart like the door. 

You were waiting like a child 

And me like a dog. 

I waited for you . 

To come home soiled. 

To come so unsure. 

I guess we never were. 

Come see if you would. 

The children that you thought so good. 

Come see if you would a broken heart. 

This makes no sense. 

I can’t make anything of it. 

This makes no sense at all. 

No sense at all. 

This is what you wanted 

I know it I’m cold, circumvented. 

My soul won’t let go. 

I never wanted nothing like this 

Never did no. 

-why are you so messed up inside 

Why are you so broken 

Maybe because everything I’ve ever loved 

So far has died except for you. 

Why do they have to lie. 

Do you think something inside you has died. 

don’t you know its the truth. 

I bleed for me and I breath for you.

Rotting 

All the years go by and I’m still here the same man. All the flowers stayed away and so did you dear. And  I am still right here. 

  And I see your face in the moon another day. 

 And just like you ache but I can’t be alright. I’d like to see you again but I’m rotting to the core. The more I die.the more I miss. 

Rotting.Rotting. 

Theres no one willing to save me.willing to stay with me.damn you alone I know you wouldn’t take it all and run, run away. 

Rotting.Rotting.

LAMENT 

 

I KNOW YOUR SAVORING. 

SAID HES ON THE TABLE. 

WAITING FOR THE SAME OLD. 

CANT BELIEVE YOU IF I WANTED TO ANYWAY. 

YOU KNOW SHE LOVES. 

SHE LOVES THE RAIN AND THE PAIN. 

TAKE A SECOND TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING 

WHAT YOU HAD WHEN IT CAME. 

FROM NOW I LOOK TO YOU 

LOOK TO YOU FOR EVERYTHING 

AND NOTHING,NOTHING AT ALL. 

AN OLD FRIEND TOLD ME IVE BEEN DYING FOR A LONG TIME. 

I BELIEVE HER . 

IM A FREE DREAMER. 

JUST SUCK IN YOUR WASTING AWAY. 

DON’T PRAY LOVE HES GONE. 

RETURN TO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO DO 

TO GET ME OFF 

TO GIVE ME ALL

-------------------------------------------------------------

Lyrics by Stephen Trip 

 

Concrete 

 

Can you tell me what I’m suppose to do with this. 

Couldn’t care less as long as you gave me a kiss. 

I never wanted to be any part of this. 

Lots of love.lots of lies many lies. 

Lots of love and lots of lies. 

So you save yourself and change no other. 

Tried so hard to be everyones other. 

Can’t resist it.I just adore adore it. 

Its like killing ones self. 

to do it just to deal with them. 

Everyday is like kissing the ground 

Eating the concrete. 

Everyday is like loving the one 

 you never even liked. 

Hold your chances of holy dances. 

Of midnight after midnight. 

I promise you I won’t be harming anyone. 

I’ll be taking you home tonight. 

And so they say its like loving 

 the one you never even fuckin’ liked. 

And they say you can’t love others 

 if you don’t love yourself. 

but thats another lie. 

Its like kissing the concrete. 

Its like licking the asphalt. 

Its like taring apart your soul. 

In this world, 

I was once alive.it seems its gone all wrong. 

I am here to try to give you everything and more. 

I am here to die.I am here tonight.

---------------------------------------------------------

Zipper 

 

Peering over the fence line. 

No one should be here really. 

To give all you have to. 

To receive ones demands. 

It was a woman. 

It wasn’t a man. 

Its tied together, and so are my hands. 

Can I please and excite you. 

Im no more sure that I can. 

If I can eat you. 

Eat you again and again. 

No time till closing. 

All day and night if you can. 

If I could I would taste so good in my hands. 

It was a woman. 

It was a man. 

Its tried together. 

Tried and true you say you can. 

Bend you over the plan 

Twist you up and in 

Push and pull like feelings. 

shook like beasts suck it all in 

Your feelings. 

It was a woman. 

It wasn’t a man. 

Its tied together as well as your hands. 

he’s stuck on a zipper. 

His hair stuck in the zipper 

I swear your gonna cut my throat.

LOADED 

When life begins to drain 

And the pictures not clear  except who to blame 

Probably everyone save yourself 

Lost your way and everything else 

to feel like someone else 

Caught inside your own prison cell 

Release it already you can only laugh 

For the way you feel for the way you act 

When you don’t know what to do 

Only getting further out and more unglued 

Seems you’ve lost your way 

It can only get better so they say. Ha 

A loaded gun will set you free 

Sadly I’ve seen it done 

All loss and no win for anyone 

for anyone 

When you lose your way 

Come home

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Requiem of a Wet Dream. 

 

State of Your mind 

State your Peace or complaint. 

Its all mine 

All our wishes and this fate. 

couldn’t even wonder away. 

Didn’t even think to blow you away. 

Saving up your prayers for an unanswered god. 

Wasting all your pain for the scars you wear. 

Pretty good business out of your house. 

don’t work ,don’t pay taxes of course. 

Who am I to even ask you this. 

Simply a man who wants to someday be like you are. 

Be where you are. 

Big tuff guy likes to get his way all the time. 

Pretty girls they drink too much wine. 

It don’t make sense but its queerly, itS clearly ok. 

Ill be waiting my time, my turn. 

to go to the other side . 

To the other side.

Being Right 

 

Didn’t I dear I. 

didnt you want to baby 

Smoked to many cigarettes last night. 

Yea smoked the cigarette right. 

Popped the brain cells ,popped some coke and then 

Get yourself dressed up.theres company coming over. 

Man, 

You can’t walk around this way. 

Can’t walk away from anything . 

From anything you’ve ever wanted to do. 

Its your life .its my life. 

You don’t know .you don’t know what your going thru. 

But I can show you. Open up your mind and soul 

and I can show ya. I’ve done it all a thousand times. 

Everything but being right. Everything but being right. 

All you see is you were right. Its not what you do.its what you do it with. 

And i’ve been doing it every night.

----------------------------------------------------

       Lyrics by Stephen Trip 

CAUTIOUS SURPRISE

 

THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU CAN GO 

IF YOU  WANT TO KNOW 

YOU CAN CLOSE YOUR EYES 

 AND LIVE BLINDED 

IF YOU WANT YOU CAN OPEN THEM WIDE AND SAY TO YOURSELF I WANT TO LIVE AND THATS WHY 

AND ALL YOUR PAIN YOU CAN LEAVE IT WHERE YOU CAUGHT IT 

AND ALL YOUR PAIN 

YOU CAN THROW AWAY 

IF YOU DONT WANT IT 

ITS NOT THE PAIN 

ITS THE SHAME 

ITS THE WAY YOUVE BEEN THINKING 

YOU WONT BE THE SAME 

YOU WONT BE TO BLAME 

ALL THIS PAIN YOU PUT YOURSELF THROUGH BECAUSE YOUR LOST AND ITS OK 

ITS OK 

ANYTHING YOU WANT YOU Can have its a  CAUTIOUS SURPRISE-

-------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Written by Stephen Trip 

Tomorrow Again 

 

Again I fall face first. 

My heart carries the burden. 

I can never pretend. 

My Will is good. 

I admit I wanted everything. 

Who doesn’t want it all. 

if I can leave you only one thing, 

Stay close to family and friends. 

Tomorrows here nothings promised. 

Tomorrows here, tomorrow again. 

All of the money in this great big world 

Couldn’t change a fucking thing. 

They love you and always will. 

Just except this its a part of them. 

This life isn’t promised to us. 

Better be sure to never let go. 

The gods must be crazy to let me live again. 

Ill be sleeping with you. 

I be sleeping with them 

Ill be sleeping with the enemy. 

Its my will, the devil has always been my friend. 

I miss you my dear friend. 

I miss the elf garden. 

Where did you go. 

Where have you been. 

I can never be free. 

I will never be free again.

Lyrics-stephen trip 

 

Blood 

 

another day has come 

and gone away 

nothing seems to fit 

my description of life 

while i feel like i am 

just a piece of shit 

 life is all but a beautiful story book 

theres no one that hears me 

or wants to be me 

i wouldn’t want to be myself 

though i'm not a creep 

i never wanted to share my blood with you 

though i did gladly 

save me save me from myself 

send in your armies 

send in your memories 

i'm not the only one effected 

and i wouldn’t want to be me 

 if i hadn’t already signed 

my destiny 

save me save me from me 

if you can 

who do you think you are 

is this wrong 

for my blood 

is this all you want 

my blood 

———————— 

The Loss 

 

“Its a sad life 

It always ends bad 

You lose everyone that you ever had 

And the best part of it all is you have no no desire left 

—————————————— 

iF 

 

its the craziest thing that i've ever wondered 

its the  craziest dream that i ever had 

i was thinking about    living again X2 

i was hoping that you would be there 

again 

if i'm dying let me die alone 

if i'm dying please don’t let me come back now 

if i'm living i want to really live 

i want to get everything i can get 

from you 

for me 

i'm wondering if your still alone 

i wanna know if you/d like to go home and get stoned 

i'm wondering if your still alone 

because i am 

in a room with a thousand people 

i am 

wondering why i'm living 

and i'm not already dead 

too many of my brothers  and sisters 

already left to this end 

i'm just wondering if i've got a real chance to live 

again 

i was hoping you’d be there x2 

if i'm dying i don’t want to die alone 

if i'm dying i don’t want anyone crying 

At my death bed 

if i'm dying so fuck’in be it 

if i'm living let me start living 

 really living again 

start living again if.....

Happy Birthday 

 

In the running for yourself 

I know you want nothing else 

Chasing after the past 

You’ll never catch it I know 

Im not the only ,I’m not the only one 

Your dreaming of everything  you were 

Your wishing upon a star has fallin away 

And you never get to be who you are 

If you don’t get out of bed, out of bed 

You hope they come back to you 

They won’t unless it was meant to be 

So they say.its bullshit 

Your life has been so different 

since then. Maybe even better 

You don’t know who to trust 

Who to believe in these days 

The world has gone to shit 

And all that believed in me are gone 

or too old to count  ,or too old to count 

Or two old to count 

Dont give up  theres still the hope they’ll be alive 

In the next go round. The next go round 

You always pray to some kind of god 

I don’t understand why you never  looked 

Within….your self 

I know you know   what I mean 

Some where deep in your skin 

Hate to     be the prisoner 

Too late to be going home 

It happens to men,it happens to man 

In the end 

Happy birthday getting closer to death 

Since the day you were born 

Happy Birthday getting closer to death 

Wouldn’t have it any other way 

Happy Birthday 

Your going to win. 

Look at the way you finally grew 

Into your own skin 

Its always been this way my friend 

Lonely too so am I 

So am I 

Theres no one to cry to 

They’ve all gone away or 

Moved on now 

Theres no one to kill 

Clean up the blood son 

I know I’ve been there 

I know I’m there right now with you 

What happened to fun 

What happened to fun

---------------------------------------------

                                                        Lyrics  by stephen trip 

  Flower rolled casualty

 

These things are more than you and I 

These things aren’t free 

These things are nothing to me save 

I just wanted you to be 

Can’t run away 

I would really like to suit you 

Im on my way to the promised land 

I might full suit you 

She’s like the devil and mine 

There is nothing left of me 

I’ve been thinking all most every second 

of every day 

I’ve been thinking you might be 

You might be better off 

better off without me 

Mad you won’t be 

she’s an emergency 

Roll me in your flower 

Maybe you won’t want to get out of bed 

Take what you want from me 

Take whatever you can get 

Take all that you’d want to return 

Give me  a check 

I was talking to someone about you 

I was thinking that its kind of strange 

how I spent my life in prison 

and now I’m still ok 

Im still ok 

Im not ok 

These things are more than you and I 

These things aren’t free

   spiritual pissings

 

Theres nothing  that  i think i deserve 

theres nothing at all  the world owes me now 

Candles burn its all been saved 

Then I glow my body aching 

Then I see your eyes and then I realize 

That I’m only giving up 

The spiritual ain’t enough 

i’m pissing on down my leg 

Down my legs 

The rabbit dies the chicken stays 

Pushing  off another day 

The bird falls down 

Life drawn out from his skin.  Dead. 

 I’d die in there 

Again 

But you won’t let up 

It’s a bad sign 

Its a fantom 

Its a curse of the morning 

If only I were alive today 

As the chicken lays 

The rabbits head is smashed open. Dead. 

And I feel the same 

And I feel so lame 

I feel the same  over it 

I feel the pain 

Don’t get over it 

Don’t get over it  I feel the same

----------------------------------------------------------

Washed

 

 

High on the jones 

you'd be surprised 

everybody realize 

we're all dying 

Hot as hell it made me a slave 

divided me and all that i believed in 

everyone is Washed away 

i run 

run away 

could not be there 

your dreams are all the same 

some things will never change 

i tell you its all the same 

i'm coming back around 

and i want you to know 

everybody's waiting 

and so alive     so alive 

got to live and need to die 

means to touch the sky     the sky 

its getting even worse in here 

the ones you thought 

don’t even care 

its getting worse getting worse in here 

disappear   by means of an answer 

help me now help me now 

help me out of her   i'll be lost forever 

disappear by means of the answer 

disappear   disappear from that witch 

your thought was getting worse 

already its like the end  of me 

mostly we are  self mutulated 

our mind has been sued by this 

pointless and  dumb 

i'm pointless and dumb 

pointless and numb

TAR 

 

Why are you so sick. How did it get to you. 

From just a prick of the needle and the smallest amount. 

Just to feel so alive and well. 

Cold darkness addresses you. I’ve done my best 

But my best has never been good enough for you. 

You carry no more pain 

You carry no more guilt. 

You carry no more care. 

You carry no more love in you. 

Whats there to do. Its wet and cold just like you. 

The stores are all closed.good thing its not bought in a store. 

Its just down the streets far enough to get my feet wet. 

Got no care. 

You carry no more pain 

You carry no more guilt. 

You carry no more care. 

You carry no more love in you 

Be there in a minute. I’m coming and going no time to stay. 

Coming right back here.to the place I feel safe. 

No reason she should feel so scared. 

They come and go but mostly stay near. 

Nothing to fear.my dear their my demons 

Once they slip away with me. you’ll feel better. 

You’ve tasted the cure.at least for the day. 

You carry no more pain. You carry no more  guilt. 

You carry no more care. 

And carry no more love in you

-------------------------------------------------------

This is a  Lie 

 

Come back down here. 

To be myself should be pleasurable. 

Come down here. 

Come home when ever. 

The days your away feel like winter still. 

Left on a Friday flew away. 

Just had to escape. 

 stay and go crazy. 

See you soon. 

see you when ever. 

dont leave this ruin stay away forever. 

This isn’t the truth. 

This isn’t the life. 

This really hurts and this is a lie. 

Sometimes is forever. 

Awhile isn’t an hour or more. 

The night is ones only friend. 

Night is the day for me. 

Come back around here. 

I hate to feel older before my time. 

Come back around . 

I know you wouldn’t bother. 

Is anything real. 

Is anyone fake. 

Try to communicate. 

try to explain. 

watch this as it falls away down the drain. 

just save your breath.why even bother.
