Johnny Boy

IMG_3682 Johnny Boy Because the world had left you lying on the groundHe stays home home for work this time

He never really told his wife
He never really told a lie but this time he decides that it’s alright.
It’s alright.
No one really knows his mind and no one knows behind his eyes.
The man deserves a medal
But he’s never really won a prize before.
He goes to lock the door.

He is falling
And though he knows it’s not
The world looks down and frowns.

Get up Johnny boy, get up Johnny boy,
Get up cause the world as left you lying on the ground.
You’re my pride and joy, you’re my pride and joy.
Get up Johnny boy because we all need you now.

We all need you now.

Someone said where you going
Someone said to you goodbye
They deflect the disrespect when they say that they blame it on the times
They blame it on the time.
We all know you’re qualified to fix a chair and love your wife
They all know you’re qualified but they lie when they blame it on the times.
And we blame it on the times.

Oh he is falling
And though he knows it’s not
The world looks down and frowns.

Get up Johnny boy, get up Johnny boy
Get up cause the world as left you lying on the ground.
You’re my pride and joy, you’re my pride and joy.
Get up Johnny boy because we all need you now.

We all need you now

I will carry all your names and I will carry all your shame
And I will carry all your names and I will carry all your shame
And I will carry all your names and I will carry all your shame

Get up Johnny boy, get up Johnny boy
Get up cause the world as left you lying on the ground.
You’re my pride and joy, you’re my pride and joy.
Get up Johnny boy because we all need you now.
Get up Johnny boy, get up Johnny boy
Get up cause the world as left you lying on the ground.
You’re my pride and joy, you’re my pride and joy.
Get up Johnny boy because we all need you now.

Addict with a Pen

 Hello

We haven’t talked in quite some time
I know
I haven’t been the best
Of sons
Hello
I’ve been traveling in
The desert of my mind
And I
Haven’t found a drop
Of life
I haven’t found a drop
Of you
I haven’t found a drop
Of water

I try desperately to run through the sand
As I hold the water
In the palm of my hand
Cause it’s all that I have
It’s all that I need and
The waves of the water
Mean nothing to me
But I try my best
And all that I can to
Hold tightly onto
What’s left in my hand
But no matter how
How tightly I will strain
The sand will slow me down
And the water will drain
I’m just being dramatic
In fact,
I’m only at it again
As an addict with a pen
Who’s addicted to the wind
As it blows me back and fourth
Mindless, spineless, and pretend
Of course I’ll be here again
See you tomorrow
But it’s the end of today
End of my ways
As a walking denial
My trail was filed as a crazy
Suicidal head case
But you specialize in dying
You hear me screaming
Father
And I’m lying here just crying
So wash me with your water

Hello
We haven’t talked in quite some time
I know
I haven’t been the best

Share what this song means to you!

Fall Away

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

I disguise
And I will lie
And I will take my precious time
As the days spent away
As I stand in line
And I die as I wait as I wait on my crime
And I’ll try to delay what you make of my life
But I don’t want your way,
I want mine
I’m dying and trying
But believe me I’m fine
But I’m lying,
I’m so very far from fine

And I can feel the pull begin
I feel my conscience wearing thin
And my skin
It will start to break up and fall apart

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

Every time I feel selfish ambition
Is taking my vision
And my crime is my sentence
Repentance is taking commission
It’s taking a toll
On my soul
I’m screaming submission and,
I don’t know if I am dying or living
‘Cause I will save face
For name’s sake
Abuse grace
Take aim to obtain a new name
And a newer place
But my name is lame
I can’t walk and I ain’t the same
And my name became
A new destiny to the grave

And I, I can feel the pull begin
Feel my conscience wearing thin
And my skin,
It will start to break up and fall apart

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

Be Concerned

Where’d you go, huh?
They all think I know you,
It’s so hard to motivate,
Me to devote a,
Single inch of me to,
Something I can’t see I,
Don’t mean to pry but why,
Would you even make the eyes?
I don’t believe my ears,
And I’m scared of my own head,
I will deny you for years,
Then I’ll make you raise me from the dead,
And if I said that I would live for you,
For nothing in return,
Well I’m sorry Mr. Gullible,
But lying’s all I’ve learned,
So be concerned.

No music,
And I could talk about anything,
Whether or not it’s worth while,
Is based on who’s listening,
Most of us listen if it’s,
Something we can relate to,
All of us relate,
If it’s something we’ve just been through,
Take it for granted,
Trust is damaged and now we panic,
Living empty-handed,
Living lives like we can’t manage,
I can’t feel you,
But still know where home is feeling like Jonah did,
Almost dropped the bat like every base was fully loaded.
So be concerned.

I am disappearing,
Inside my bird’s eye theories,
I try to say goodbye, defy, and deny,
What it is I’m fearing,
Clearly I am dying, dearly I am writing,
Merely testifying, that the test to fly requires I,
Pass the test with colors flying,
I don’t believe you most the time,
I’m lying ’cause I say I am fine,
You are the pearl,
I am the swine,
So break my life and take this rhyme,
I’m so sorry but I do believe,
That all my bridges,
I have burned,
And I’ve earned a policy of no return,
So be concerned.

Clear

I wish that I had two faces to prove which theory works,
Yelling on the street corner or cleverly masking your words,
I take my face off at the door ’cause I don’t know who they will take me for,
I wonder if I tell them what I did last night,
Whether or not I got caught, they just might,
Wage war on you, therefore it’s true,
That I shot my general on my side of enemy lines.

I’m the son of all I’ve done,
Impostor, been fostered, then my new father drained my dirty blood.

I’m not trying to be lying to you,
But it takes a clever guy to do what I do,
It takes some chivalry and well placed energy,
To subliminally get yourself inside you,
Introspection is the name of this session,
Spread this infection, reflect it on the next one,
The next one, the next one, and when we’re done,
We’ll all have made something new under the sun,
I’m not done, I’m not done yet, no,
Kick me off the stage and take my microphone,
Then you’ll walk up to me and when you get close,
I’ll look you in the face and say, “Where’s your home?
Where are you going and why are you here?”
Have you asked these questions? Have you been sincere?
Want to know what I believe, it’s right here,
Dig a little deeper and it’s crystal clear.

I will tell you what I can,
But your mind will take a stand,
I sing of a greater love,
Let me know when you’ve had enough.
