  I find you in the morning After dreams of distant signs You pour yourself over me Like the sun through the blinds You lift me up And get me out Keep me walking But never shout Hold the secret close I hear you say You know the way It twists and turns Changing color Spinning yarns You know the way It leaves you dry It cuts you up And takes you high You know the way It’s painted gold Is it honey Is it cold You know the way It throws about It takes you in And spits you … Continue reading OPTSotD- Peter Murphy

OPTSotD- Jane’s Addiction

Wish I was ocean size They cannot move you No one tries No one pulls you Out from your hole Like a tooth aching a jawbone… I was made with a heart of stone To be broken With one hard blow I’ve seen the ocean Break on the shore Come together with no harm done… It ain’t easy living… I want to be As deep As the ocean Mother ocean Some people tell me Home is in the sky In the sky lives a spy I want to be more like the ocean No talking All action… No talking All … Continue reading OPTSotD- Jane’s Addiction

All we ever wanted was everything All we ever got was cold Get up, eat jelly, sandwich bars and barbed wire And squash every week into a day Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh The sound of the drum is calling The sound of the drum has called Flash of youth shoot out of darkness Factory town Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh Oh to be the cream Oh to be the cream Oh to be the cream Continue reading OPTSotD- Bauhaus

OPTSotD-Slipknot

Bury all your secrets in my skin Come away with innocence and leave me with my sins The air around me still feels like a cage And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again So if you love me let me go And run away before I know My heart is just too dark to care I can’t destroy what isn’t there Deliver me into my fate If I’m alone I cannot hate I don’t deserve to have you Ooh, my smile was taken long ago If I can change I hope I never know I still … Continue reading OPTSotD-Slipknot

OPTSotD-Dogtooth & Nail

How do I explain When you ask me how I’m doing I tell ya, it’s all the same It’s all the same Oh and how do we escape A system that we’re feeding the truth is We’re all to blame We’re all to blame And I’m surrounded by strangers even if I know their names… Your voice is worse than a thousand nails on a chalkboard Piercing my skull like Phineas Gage Iron through skin and bone But this railroad can only take me so far away…. so far away…. Shadows follow you But I’m no follower I don’t need … Continue reading OPTSotD-Dogtooth & Nail
