Out west The troubled souls Refuse to go to rest We will walk thru the desert til our feet give out oh so many contemporary are determined to be the best we remain firmly grounded you with your head in the clouds do i have to be loud to attract a crowd? Out west The family tribe Refuse to lie down They will walk thru the desert til their gods unite them oh so many contemporary can't find a peaceful day without a piece of real estate or owning a piece of the ground do we have to be loud to attract a crowd?

blushing, feeling the heat watching you take off your clothes turning, the world skips a beat do you suppose... that this might be one of those moments when everything else ceases to be? rushing right for the ground fleeting, moments are lost in between sight & sound blushing is the only cost... you may pay for one of those moments when everything else turns to dust.

the moment i told him he said i was acting like a fool and would i be the bigger fool if i told him i wasn't even acting? is there not a time and place in this short frame of mind where it's more important who you are than what you believe? what i have control over i can count on my fingers who cares where my heart is in my body or on my sleeve? he said to me; "you tremble like the coward that you are, if you didn't wanna fight why were you put on this earth? you tremble like that fucking coward that you are, better go down fighting or don't go down at all!" now i ball up my hands feeling hand over fist cracking my knuckles trembling, more scared than angry i'm not backing down this time i'm not the innocent one she's not the eva that broke our paradise and maybe we're fortunate we're done... he said to me; "you tremble like the coward that you are, if you didn't wanna fight why were you put on this earth? you tremble like that fucking coward that you are, better go down fighting or don't go down at all!"

seasons followed one another we always swallowed one another no matter how big the lie I’m doing dishes for your mother I’m moving furniture for your father no matter how hard i try i couldn't sew the tear together if i wanted to even in the moments of disorder, i still wanted you... oh standing at the bottom we were all tightly knit together bit by bit you all disappeared from the picture reason came to replace passion and you got obsessed with the fashion and colour turned to black & white you're out of focus & receding and this film is proceeding with or without the dialogue i write i couldn't put the moments in order if i wanted to it's not a question of whether i wanted to... standing at the bottom we were all tightly knit together bit by bit you all disappeared from the picture
