LYRICS

MEDUSA

Stoic on the outside

Seething from within

Dead men all around me

And my dark forsaken twin

Sullen and weary

Telepathic mind

Shadow of a cold heart

Frozen in time.

Medusa, I’m not afraid

Medusa, I’ve already paid

I’ve already paid

Rotting from the inside

Drowning in the deep

What they did to you my dear

Has nothing to do with me

It kills me from the inside

The hollowness I keep

Buried deep inside you

Eyes begin to bleed

 

Medusa, I’m not afraid

Medusa, I’ve already paid

Medusa, I’m all alone

Give me your best shot, baby

I’m already stone

 

bridge – Percussion/Bass)

 

I’m all alone

I’m all alone

I’m all alone

I’m already stone

 

(lead)

 

Medusa, I’m not afraid

Medusa, I’ve already paid

Medusa, I’m all alone

Give me your best shot, baby

I’m already stone, I’m already stone

21 GRAMS

She wakes up in the morning

Starts another day

Works real hard to pay the bills

Just like yesterday

 

Works to live, lives to work

Starts to get ahead

Images now dance

To the songs of the dead

 

Does this all sound familiar?

Do you want to be free?

From a life with no meaning

And a cage you cannot see

 

Why are you fighting?

In the end it’s all the same

The gates that you go through

When you lose your name

 

You chose to be the fighter

Live your life a little tighter

In the end it doesn’t matter

When you’re 21 grams lighter

 

Choose your battles wisely

Open up your heart

Elevate your frequency

Humble from the start

For every single dawn

Everyone you meet

Every single breath

Every single beat

 

You chose to be the fighter

Live your life a little tighter

In the end it doesn’t matter

When you’re 21 grams lighter

When you’re 21 grams lighter

Ch. X2

MOJAVE MOON

White lines run through me

My true life eludes me

If I wake another day

Will you be there for me?

 

The desert sun behind me

Mojave moon beside me

Lead me to real so I may feel

The heart that beats within me

 

The room inside is empty without you

The hollowness inside, an open wound

 

Wrap yourself around me

Help a blind man see

If I wake another day

Will you be there for me?

 

The truth burns within me

Like a graveyard beneath me

Behind the wall I cannot fall,

Cannot feel or see

 

The room inside is empty without you

The hollowness inside, an open wound

The room inside is empty without you

Haunted by the sky, Mojave moon        

 

White lines run through me

My true life eludes me

If I wake another day

Will you be there for me?

ON'T WAIT FOR FATE

Starving for feeling, sick of apathy

Seeking inspiration, but I'm blind

You always protect me, I never really fall

Love and trust elude me all the time

 

You can't count curses, fall in hate

Can't count blessings, don't wait for fate

 

Sharing the torture, trying to survive

Hiding discontentment in our lives

We're stuck in the quicksand, fighting to survive

Everything they taught us is a lie

 

You can't count curses, fall in hate

Can't count blessings, don't wait for fate

You can't count curses, fall in hate

Can't count blessings, don't wait for fate

 

Reaching for feeling, the dragon from within

The flame I lost so many years ago

The fire in my darkness, sweet familiar soul

Tear up the world and let that fire grow

 

You can't count curses, fall in hate

Can't count blessings, don't wait for fate

You can't count curses, fall in hate

Can't count blessings, don't wait for fate

HOW WILL YOU DIE?

Are you feeling defeated?

Are your vices killing you?

Is your heart cut wide open,

Faith bleeding from your wounds?

Pain is only a frame of mind,

No time to waste

Accept what lies before you,

The challenge, the fight, and the race

 

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

 

No need to question.

They'll kick you when you're down.

Don't wait for Karma.

Bring that darkness around.

You are the master,

So long as you live and breathe

Take as many with you,

Shall be the only creed that you scream

 

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

 

How long have you laid down,

Taking it as it comes?

With death about to touch you,

Your enemies have surly won

Will that be your legacy,

The end of a sour note?

Or will you rise one last time

And slit your rival's throat?

 

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

How will you die,

On your feet or on your knees?

 

How will you die? How will you die?

WITHOUT A DAWN

Picked up the phone to call you

Realized you were gone

Restless tiger in your cage

Did you decide to move on?

 

Still remember the summer time

When your lips first touched mine

Playing in the dead of night

Love was painful by design

                                                                   

I said I miss you

Then you were gone

Flying with the angels                        

Morning without a dawn

 

You are the ghost from the river

You are the haunted dream

Always the hidden sliver darling

An end we can not foresee

 

I said I miss you

Then you were gone

Flying with the angels

Morning without a dawn                

 

I said I miss you

Then you were gone

Flying with the angels

Mourning without a dawn                

Burning Whiskey

Burnin’ Whiskey

© 1975 Ruby Starr

 

Seems you’ve had it, with all of my games

Trouble and hard times, come with my name

Love with a loser, causes you pain

Take it away – take it away

 

Burnin’ whiskey

Oh how that whiskey burns

When my baby left

To whiskey I had to turn

                                                        

No one can help me, now I’m alone

Nothin’ I can say, will bring you back home

Yes I’m the loser, you made me so blue

Hey, hey burnin’ whiskey, help see me through

 

Burnin’ whiskey

Oh how that whiskey burns

When my baby left

To whiskey I had to turn   

 

There ain’t no need to deny

What I’m feeling inside

Turn up the music

Hand me the bottle

And I will forget you lied

 

Burnin’ whiskey

Oh how that whiskey burns

When my baby left

To whiskey I had to turn                        

 

Burnin’ whiskey

Oh how that whiskey burns

When my baby left

To whiskey I had to turn                        

One Foot Stuck 

Do you talk to your god?

Does he listen to you?

When you wake up in the morning,

Do you feel like you got screwed?

 

You sit upon your high chair

Try to preach ‘the way’ to me

But I’ve been down that road before

I know the lies and hypocrisies

 

I don’t care what you’re saying

I don't care anyway

You’re trapped in your own illusions

With one foot stuck in the grave

 

I’m living in the lust of nature

I drink from her everyday

You preach to me about virtue

Living the way of the slave

 

I don’t care what you’re saying

I will find my own way

You’re trapped in your own illusions

With one foot stuck in the grave

 

You’ve got nothing to show me

Nothing to give me

Nothing to teach me

One foot stuck in the grave

 

You want me down on my knees

Serving the holy trinity

But my heart and soul are taken Father

By the goddess of liberty

 

I don’t care what you’re saying       

I will find my own way

You’re trapped in your own illusions

With one foot stuck in the grave

 

Do you talk to your god? Does he listen to you?

RISE

On the night of the full moon

Bad thoughts in my head

The rage is taking over

All I see is red

When you look into my eyes

Tell me what you see

Ripping, gnashing, killing passion, bloody predatory

 

Rise, rise, calling the wolf within

Rise, rise, shed my human skin you muther…

 

Burning in transformation

We can't breathe anymore

Sour thoughts on how to live

Got us cursing at the world

We hold you responsible

Trying to make us frail

You can't see past the numbers

We're your hidden nail

 

Rise, rise, calling the wolf within

Rise, rise, shed my human skin you mutherfucker

 

You say you're above us

All the gold is yours

Killing millions of people

Starting all the wars

Justified 'as god' you say

Hands are washed clean

No belief in the spirit

Remember the guillotine

 

Rise, rise, calling the wolf within

Rise, rise, shed my human skin you muther…

Rise, rise, calling the wolves within'

Rise, rise, start the revolution

Body and Soul

You lit up the world with dark empathy

We were blind and could not see

The haunting voice of the soul alone

We turned our heads

And through the veil you were gone

 

Your body and soul at war,

The love you lost tore your soul

 

Broken memories of wings denied

Take me back to a time of love

We waited for you, waited so long

Immortal voice, I still hear your song

 

Your body and soul at war,

The love you lost tore your soul

Your body and soul at war,

You couldn't take the pain anymore

 

We dreamed of a day,

When your cage of hell would fade away

And we could hear your honesty again

A star shining bright, dying night after night

Still hard to believe that you are gone

 

Your body and soul at war,

The love you lost tore your soul

Your body and soul at war,

You couldn't take the pain anymore

Monster

The witches fly and always cry when I fail them

To hit a wall and fall was never my intention

All tied up in knots, waitin' for the fury

But the beast inside is tellin' me not to worry

 

You are the earthy woman I’ve been waiting for

Locked in my prison cell, I gotta have some more

Thought I was good to go when I left the horror

But I’m not allowed to love; here comes the monster

                                                                

Wide awake in the void of validation

The hero self exposes my destruction 

Guilt ridden, love killer, biting as you weep

All my thoughts are lost in you so deep

 

You are the earthy woman I’ve been waiting for

Locked in my prison cell, I gotta have some more

Thought I was good to go when I left the horror

But I’m not allowed to love; here comes the monster

 

You are the earthy woman I’ve been waiting for

Locked in my prison cell, I gotta have some more

Thought I was good to go when I left the horror

But I’m not allowed to love; here comes the monster

 

The witches fly and always cry when I fail them…

SOMETHING NEW

Something New

 

Giving me the look of love,

Innocent and kind

You say I'm good, I'm good enough

To tell you that you're blind

Deep down inside me is the meaning of love

You understand mortality with a pocketful of dust

 

You tell me that you love me, I believe it's true

Why destroy a good thing

Just because it's something new?

 

Got a lot of garbage, just don't turn the key

Women and the church have given

Since the age of three

I am getting better every single day

Liberated, I know freedom is the only way

 

You tell me that you love me, I believe it's true

Why destroy a good thing

Just because it's something new?

 

Don't try to own me, those days are done

Bring a ring to break my wing,

I'll turn around and run

Deep down inside me is the meaning of love

You understand mortality with a pocketful of dust

 

You tell me that you love me, I believe it's true

Why destroy a good thing

Just because it's something new?
