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

Incense 03:49
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...

Mantra 03:37
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

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

October 04:08
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 …
