Track Name: Life Is A Laugh
LIFE IS A LAUGH

Your pain seems unreal
Still confoundin’ trust and faith
You want peace of mind
Look God straight in the eye
Be free from desire and lust
Made with the devil
A deal that makes you feel like a wreck
Vanished dreams eat you from the inside
Now everything tastes like dust

It’s a pity ! Such a pity
Life should be a laugh
What a pity !
It’s a pity ! Such a pity
Life should be a laugh
Life is a Laugh

Killed the best part of yourself
Staring at a gun that is loaded
You want peace of mind
Look God straight in the eye
Don't feel the bloody sorrow again
Reduce grief to ashes
Burn your body on the cross
Better wait, Hell’s not a warmer place
You’ll see the truth
When the smoke’s cleared

It’s a pity ! Such a pity
Life should be a laugh
What a pity !
It’s a pity ! Such a pity
Life should be a laugh
Life is a Laugh
Track Name: Incense
INCENSE

I felt something was fading,
Did I tell you what I’d seen ?
In the air in my dreams
Did I tell you what I’d seen ?

The Great Spirit gave what they tried to steal from us
The good grass and the river that flows to seas

We face death with delight
We face death with delight

White man’s greedy for our lands, for the way we live
White man’s greedy for our wives, they come tonight to kill

By the light of day,
My father fell
Now he’s walking
In the shadowlands

We face death with delight

We fought like braves...
Track Name: Mantra
MANTRA

Don’t ask me anything
I have nothing to complain about
She put a smile upon my face
She knows how to love with a single kiss

Her name’s a mantra I can say
I can whisper Again and again
When I get confused
Her name’s a mantra I can say
I can whisper Again and again
When I get Insane
I’m not afraid… anymore

She’s a guide, she’s more than a teacher
She’s a soul-mate, she’s more than a lover
She knows how to free me with a single kiss

Her name’s a mantra I can say
Again and again and again
When I get confused
Her name is a mantra I can whisper
Her name’s a mantra I can say
I can whisper Again and again
When I get confused
Her name is a mantra I can whisper
Again and again and again
When I get Insane
When I get Insane

I’m not afraid… anymore
Track Name: This Flood Serene
THIS FLOOD SERENE

Now you see everything you can't hide
And you feel this shame that tastes like cyanide
Each bruise you tease is a wild beast you try to tame,
That you blame but you never name

You'd rather not recall that you love a woman
A young maid, a sweet teen doesn't love a woman
So you burn on your skin why you should grin, babe
Dead people don't bleed, you know you'll drift upon
This flood serene

Daddy said you'll belong
To a guy, so blonde and strong
He'll make you fond
Coz' all the lucky ones
Dream to swing
At the end of a sling
But you think there's no thrill
That a blade can't heal

You'd rather not recall that you love a woman
Coz a young maid, a sweet teen doesn't love a woman
So you burn on your skin why you should grin, babe
Dead people don't bleed, you'll drift upon
This flood serene
Track Name: October
OCTOBER

A broken child never cries
He’s too afraid to be beaten once more
Underneath his tired and cracked smile
Lies a dark truth He can’t reveal
Coz of a lack of faith
Or of a lack of passion
For a so-called good or bad reason
No matter No matter
He’s gone
He’s not coming back
Oooh, he keeps his money
But he gives his body so easily
No matter No matter
He’s gone
He’s not coming back

Even the richest and best-born guy
Won’t resist starin’ into the deep void
Yeah, you’re right
Even the most talented of all
Could lose his mojo suddenly

Well, a handsome face
Won’t last a million or a billion days
Vanished hustlers can’t dream no more
(To be taken for a nice ride)
The wisest man of old
Maybe needs a needle to fix his mind
Is that the true meaning of everything ?

Booze seems to make ‘em much more alive
