ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blister
-------
Now you're put back in your place
Smile once tatooed on your face
I act only as your tool
Your turn now you play my fool

And I wanted to
Yeah I wanted to die
When I looked at you
And I saw right through

I wanted to die
I wanted to die
I needed to die
Yeah, I want to die

Gaze out at a purple sky
Velvet lovers gone awry
Be still, feel my blood it flows
Inside my hatred how it grows

And I feel like a brick's
Been tossed through my head
And my spirit left my body
For the land of the dead

Yeah land of the dead
That's what he said
We'd be better off dead
We'd be better off dead

Silence, passion to my ears
Disgust, as the smoke screen clears
Feed me before the moment's lost
Helpless, untie me from my cross

And I feel like a brick's
Been tossed through my head
And my spirit left my body
For the land of the dead

We'd be better off dead
We'd be better off dead

Mainliner
---------
The snow was falling
you heard me calling
To my rescue you surely would not come

Well it aint the first time
And it probably aint the last

Well you'd think I'd learn
More than twice been burned
But I still pour my heart over your flame

You said if I was hungry
You'd nourish my soul
But now I stand hear bleeding
As your winter wind grows cold... so cold

I push my arms up high
Try to punch the sky
But I find I'm slowly sinking
Chill runs down my spine
'Cause I've been so blind
But woman, we aint even
Now we aint even

I read your letter
Sugar I know better
than to run back to you with open arms

Said I feel mistreated
And woman, we aint even
Now we aint even

I make my final stand
A sad and lonely man
But at least my pride is not weakened
Scars on my face
'Cause I know my place
Yeah but woman, we aint even
Now we aint even
Now we aint even

Where?
------
Piece of mind
Was all I ever asked for
Lamb's blood smeared
A symbol over my door

It's true I never felt my daddy caress my face
What you see is a sorry state of childhood grace

I sit and watch the river run into the sea
And I wonder does that river run through me?
And out this window I often dream that I can fly
Or do I dream I die?

Where did you go?
You left me all alone
What does it mean?

By the shape of things
What my future brings
Looks quite dark to me

Like a prisoner my hands are chained, I'm bound to an earthly cell
The doctors here tell me it's praobably just as well
Beneath this crooked cross I lie in my shallow grave
To neon lights I am a slave

Where did you go?
You left me all alone
What does it mean?

When I gasp for air
I know that none is there
So I sit and I stare

You left me all alone
Where did you go?
And What does it mean
to you, if anything?

When I gasp for air
I know that none is there
So I sit and I stare
Yeah I stare

Where? Where?

Soul Garden
-----------
All that I remember
Are the burn marks and the chains
Reflecting on my past life
In the city's stinging rain

Got to get myself together
Got to break out of my mental shell
Been talking to myself lately
You'd be surprised, it's goin' quite well

Neon lights the city breathes
Hit the streets at godspeed
Beyond belief, beneath deciept
Lies your soul garden
Soul garden

And if I didn't know better
I'd say the sun will never shine again
And you, I once trusted
I'll never make that mistake again

When I head straight towards the light
Sanity's no where in sight
Beyond belief, beneath deciept
Lies your soul garden
Soul garden

As I look up to the sky
I feel the changing tide
As the waves crash in around me

Stolen emotion
Like a drop in the ocean
I'm losing myself

Like a terminal illness
Agony, and stillness
I feed on myself

I don't need to expose it
It's a path that I've chosen
My santuary

And I know that it's not fair
But I find that it's where
I am what I am, what I am

I'm losing myself
I'm losing myself
I'm losing myself

Really good rock and roll base with a solid hard rock edge!
If you're looking for something a little different, this is it. These songs reflect the band's overall style of solid rock and roll with a hard rock edge to it. Part hard rock, part grunge, these songs are definitely worth adding to your collection ... I certainly did!
