I’d try to make things right with you. to many dreams. to many dreams. I didn’t give no warning. Where there is love that’s shining bright I’ll let it in. So one forgets how one should pray. I see the sunlight shining through. I just can’t take this kind of life no more. But this was something that I had to do. I see a new day dawning. . To many thoughts. I don’t believe that anybody’s done me wrong. These dreams of mine are coming true Oh yes indeed. Sitting by the side of the road to nowhere. If I could stop these tears from falling. To many thoughts. To Many Thoughts To Many Dreams. Where was I headed anyway? In the past I’ve been so lonely.1. And I can’t conceive just how I’ve managed to carry on. I don’t believe that you could carry a heart of stone. Deep down inside you know its right. Have you any thought of what it’s like to be alone. To many golden hearts been broken so it seems. To many years of being starved from life. And maybe when the morning comes we could pretend life’s oh so new. to many dreams. To many thoughts. I don’t believe that you gave it your all.
I’m talking ‘bout my passion. My passion deep inside. he’s no-longer waiting. Just like the love for a child this young man he grew wild. He stood waiting. And now this gifted young man was doing all that he could while he was waiting. Baby we can’t let this passion die. Don’t ever let it slip away. and now. But through the thick and the thin and all the hard times for him he kept waiting. . You know we’ve got to keep the dream alive. Well this man nearly died as his passion inside was kept waiting. Did you ever give a damn about the man who spent his life waiting? It didn’t matter who you’re with or what you did he kept waiting. But he never understood all the things that he should.2. There were times that were good and there were times that he should have stopped waiting. While He Was Waiting.
Cut The Chains Forever.3. Never cared for what they said. . Living this life I can’t let go. I’ve cut the chains forever. They all spoke like I was dead. Something’s changing me I know. I’ve cut the chains forever. Taming my insanity.
Sitting on a park bench watching the town clock. No Purpose. Watching life as it passes by. Just keep filling in the pages the best that one knows how. All hurrying because they should. Twenty to two says the town clock. . Each motorist in a panic. The bus driver on Wilton fourteen is long faced and bored.4. What is one to do? With no purpose for the now.
And now it hurts to rediscover. Learning to love myself. What is this place I’ve come to? Finding myself. All by myself. What is this place I’ve come to? All the joy. All rolled into one. these things I must do. Before I can love another. . the sadness and the hurt I’ve ever known. I blocked out the real me for far too long. Not being able to separate the truth from the lies. What Is This Place I’ve Come To? All Alone. Learning to know myself is pain. Surrounded by a world of uncertainty. Leaving my familiar surroundings to escape the illusion. I’ve discovered the illusion is me. Learning to know myself is pain. What is this place I’ve come to? Wanting to let go but never knowing quite how to express myself.5.
I’ve seen dark cold nights and the full winters rage. But After a while and to my surprise. And whistle away. I just stop. But I stop. I don’t even know why I stay in this place. I stop and think of a place I’d like to be. And keep whistling away.6. And who would be there to keep me company. Whistling away. .
Take It From Me. I’ll leave this place. . It’s cold and dark where I am now. Once I’ve departed. Won't someone Stop me. Controls my body. Release the burden that I have and take it from me. The blade that comforts me. I know.7. Is old and rusted. A losing battle almost won. No-one can touch me. But it don’t matter anymore. In my body. I can not move so I just lie here. The life is draining from my eyes. I’ll hurt no more. The silence tearing me apart. Just take it from me. Just take it from me.
All the coffee we drank kept us up for hours. I can see your hearts bleeding. And the times that you fear that your all alone. Living unhappy is not for you. Didn’t quite see the feeling surrounding you. Give you a life that you’ve never known. Save the day. I’m coming out of nowhere to save the day just to be with you. All those things that you told me are coming true. Now I’m coming out of nowhere to save the day. Well I don’t need a reason for sending you flowers. I can see that you need me there’s no doubt about it. I will always be there to keep you safe and warm. I just want to hold you. Yes I’m coming out of nowhere to save the day. .8.
Because I can’t let go. Is that I never hurt anybody else but me. Because I can’t let go. Trapped inside myself. I’ve got no-one else to turn to. I’ve got to make it on my own. What’s this place I’ve come to? I'm lost Because I can't let go. I’ve got to break a window so I can breathe. . Because I Can’t Let Go.9. But I won't. I’m feeling really tired and all worn out. Been looking for the answers all my life. And the thing I’ve come to know.
I look to the sun and all I see is me. Sleeping in a bed of lies.10. I’ve seen what I’ve become. The Lonely One. Head Shaking from side to side. I’m hypnotized. The lonely one. I only wish that I could sail away. . I think I’m going Crazy.
Moving from place to place. I’m going crazy from within. Scared from not knowing what tomorrow brings. The despair I feel consumes me. Here again all alone back in a world of uncertainty. Lost without stability. . My soul is screaming hoping to be freed.11. Alone Again.
12. long time. Mother nature calls to me. You make your choice never thinking twice. Waterfall Of Life. I will be here to catch you when you fall. I see the sunset on rainy days. Don’t feel the need for anything. My world is spinning. Can you feel it? (Do you feel just like me?) Can you believe it? (All the uncertainty?) I’ve got to see it. All the colours turning to gold. I’ve got nature coming back to me. But it’s not to late for you. . The pita pata whispers gently to my brain. Been travelling round for a long. But I’m still here and it’s all the same. For everything there is a sacrifice. It’s to late for many. Enjoy the party Just don’t be a fool. I’m walking on a bed of roses. But I’ll never fly it on my own.
Every time I close my eyes. Looking for someone to meet. I’ve got this feeling inside.13. Oh I’m in need of a friend. But I still see your smile. Seems so wrong and I don’t know how I ever did before. To live my life without you now. . In Need Of A Friend. To make a mends I reach out my hands. I’ve been walking down an empty street. What I’d give for one more chance. I think of you and I realise I’m lonely. I see the look in your eyes. I want to be with you. Oh I’m in need of a friend.
I love you so. You are the purest form of love I’ll ever know. . The first time that I saw your face. Been wishing you a good night sleep. I love you so. tears fell from my eyes. Michael. Michael. We’ll do things. How I long to hold you in my arms. One day we will be together.14. You and I. Nothing in this world can change how you make me feel in side. Michael. I love you so. since the day that you were born.
What am I to do? What am I to do? . All my secrets no-one knows. Ice cold hardened heart. What am I to do? What am I to do? I just wanted to tell you.15. But now your on the road you chose. Did it even mean a thing? Or was it just another crazy dream. That I always loved you baby. Will I ever be the same. Thinking of you. No-one left to blame. Sad skies of grey. Blows those blues away. Thinking of you. Sad Skies Of Grey.
I’ve got to find my treasure. Don’t want nobody else. I’ve got to find the answer. My life’s full of misery and now I’m all alone. I’m in a place where you can’t find me. . And I’m running from the emptiness to the place where I belong. I feel the sunshine shining over me. I feel the rain pouring over me and I hope it goes away. And I hope it’s here to stay.16. And I’m out here by myself. Guess I should have realized the consequence involved. but I guess that I’ve been told. Acting like a hero. Going Home. I’ve got a cultivated occupation rising through the storm. A young man growing old.
Make you smile when your feeling blue. I was to kiss you. Would it ever happen anyway. I feel a gentle breeze every time you sigh. My baby. Now that the war is over. Sweet lady. Show me what love is. You know just how I feel so baby someday. Will you carry me to the other side. My baby. My baby. Got to get a grip cause I’m losing control. I’d like to be your Casanova. Would you turn your head and back away. Sweet lady. . What if. I would do anything just to feel your touch. I would give my love to only you. Sweet Lady. I would give anything because it means so much. Will you carry me to the other side. Sweet lady. make me feel alive. Sweet lady. I miss you like crazy.17. Got to see you my baby. Just maybe.
Can’t you see I’m trying to make it on my own. Oh sweet darling I can see why you went. Oh baby now. Yeah I need your loving.18. Never ever took the time to appreciate you. With all the pain I feel it can’t possibly end. Oh baby now. How Can we make up? I can’t stand the break up. I thought love was a game and I could be number one. How Can we make up? I can’t stand the break up. . Living each day as it comes along. Been doing some thinking for an hour or two. But without your loving. But oh my darling . There’s no escaping so I might as well not run. One more chance babe is all I want. Oh sweet baby I know that I was wrong.I know I still love you. Oh can’t you see that I’m in need of a friend. Sorry. Nothing in this world could ever change what I’ve done. Summertime is coming. And now your gone I’ve realized we’re actually through. Summertime is coming. love just ain’t no more fun. Yeah I need your loving. Words once were spoken but never again.
19. To be my own I must run away. I remember the time when the legions called me. To Be My Own. Didn’t matter what I’d do I stone myself just to follow you. Didn’t matter what I’d do The seasons had changed like the people before me. . When there is no-one else I will call on you.
. Empty thoughts are here to stay. An empty soul that can not find. Haunted dreams of years gone by. I ask from you the right to die. This blinding darkness that knows no shame.20. My Prison Cell. Myself imprisoned what to say. Any hope or peace of mind. It calls to me to end this game.
Falling. . And now I’m falling.21. I spread my wings and try to fly. Something’s telling me that nothing matters anymore. But nothings happening. it comes to me. but nothings happening. Colours changing all around. And now I’m falling. The mystery. I'm tripping out. it's the longest day.
Love is not my highway. I believe in love no more. So from this moment I cast it away. It’s more like disappointment sent to try me. They say breaking up is the hardest thing to do. . But I don’t feel for you anymore.22. So I believe in love no more. The Hardest Thing. I’m so tired of being in love.
Would you cry if I said goodbye. So now things have changed. It’s me this knife is cutting. I never saw this coming. And your with someone new.23. . and that I was leaving you tomorrow. How would you feel. And would it be so bad if I just walked away and didn’t talk at all. Of all the things I’ve figured out.
love and happiness shall all but disappear. .24. Cold as a century All the scriptures state that life dictates. Run. Cry. Peace. Cold As A Century. when hunger strikes. Evil is a hunger built of fear and hate. cry all you like. when the time is right. Take your brothers life. Feed. The time of the gathering is drawing near.
But say it feels good all the same. Parcel of lies. . But don’t talk crazy to my mind. You thought of me as the antichrist. I feel the burning flames. You say you want me yet you doubt me. With mixed emotions who’s to say? A new desire but now broken pride. A part time lover isn’t heaven. I don’t exactly know how I feel inside. With no real effort I seduced you.25. There’s no commitment just be happy. Or you will see my fire die. You took the parcel of lies. But it sure beats being alone. If you want me you can have me. I gave you a key to my home.
Now my love is raining. my heart for a while. Never cared for much but I like what I see in you My love is raining. Like all good things there must be an end. You gave back to me. And I thank God that we can still be friends. Raining love. . Over you. I remember the first time that I saw you smile.26. But now your gone I feel my hearts been torn in two.
The answer to my problems is buried deep inside. . Soul searching. I’m gonna get it right this time. Cause I know this much is true. Not knowing what he’d find.27. Soul searching. At times I’ve felt so empty. Sitting in the corner of his lonely dungeon room. Planning my escape. Sifting through the ashes of a life he’d left behind. Soul Searching. What was this worried soul to do? Looking deep inside. while I was doing time. Time to get my life back on line. But now I know the time is right. I’m soul searching through and through. Waiting for his sentence. No more hurting. was what I had in mind. Tried to find a reason.
Lets walk through my garden and watch the birds as they fly away. . I’m feeling rather horny. Since we broke up there’s been no-one else. You must learn to forget yourself. These chains can not be broken. Misguided decisions. Never could believe you anyway. I cut my wrists just to free myself. Lets focus. You spoke of hearts broken. Mess you up and lead your mind astray. Just like the serpent master.28. My Garden. What is this? Spread your lies expecting me to know. Oh women listen to me. You’ve cast your spell and I must break your power.
But my body was only dreaming. And free my mind when my soul is screaming. What will I be when the night is done? What will I be when the morning has come? As I am me. . The faded one. I tell myself what I can’t deny.29. I have become. From young to old. I looked into the night time sky. The Faded One.
I can feel you all around. A slave to my own iniquity. I wallow in the sand.30. Subdued. Your haunting eyes see right through me. My nerves must be subdued. . My mind is blind. I stumble to the ground. Your haunting eyes they see right through me.
You never gave a thought for me. Never new my eyes could weep. Picking daisies in a field. Funny thoughts within my head. Acid. . Teaching all the boys and girls. Christened baby from the sea. Supple dew marks window pane.31. Man I wish that I could sleep. How to make love everyday. Spreading disease but I don’t care. The sound of free love everywhere. Speeding bullets lace and led.
Didn’t know what to do. Meant for two baby just you and me. Do you like what you see? My head is aching and it won't go away. To free my mind I’ll try to live again. I don’t know where I’m running to. I should have sought. I cherish the love. A table for three. I don’t know why I’m running away. Baby don’t let me stray. I never thought. . I don’t know why I’m running away. I don’t know why I’m running away.32. I don’t know why I’m running away. But now it’s over I don’t need you baby. I look to the stars. What once was beautiful could be so untrue. Baby don’t let me stray. I don’t know where I’m running to. Baby don’t let me stray. I don’t know why I’m running away. Running Away. I don’t know where I’m running to. I don’t know why I’m running away. The answers clearly.
Something’s bugging me. I’m riding on the edge of the earth. When does the sadness go away? It holds me down in misery. I hope one day I’ll see just what I’m meant to be.33. . My eyes too blind to see. Dropping Off The Face Of The Earth. What lies ahead I can’t be sure. But as for now. What’s been going on round here? Wish they’d all just disappear. I’m slipping into the unknown. My minds too numb to breathe. I’m hoping that I fall off the face of the earth. I’m watching shadows dropping off the face of the earth. Someone’s hurting me.
I wipe the blood sweat from my brow. When the game is up And you need the stuff. illusions surround me. As I sit here. Addictions. Can’t do without and when your time is up. And I can not see quite how. They rule my life. When the game is up And you need the stuff. As I adhere. Can’t do without and when your time is up. All my brain can do is worry me. . I just need a cure to set me free. Addictions. My world crumbles in around me.34. Addictions you can’t get enough. Addictions. Addictions you can’t get enough.
Scared. I’ve lost my mind. . So scared. some consolation. They’re calling. Don’t know who I am or where I’m heading. The night has been too long and I’m stuck in this nightmare. can’t you see that I am Scared. Creature of the night. The night has been too long and I don’t feel like sleeping.35. The nightmare is cold and I hate when I’m dreaming. Got to find some joy. can’t you see that I am Scared. The night has been too long and I’m stuck in this nightmare. Creature of the night. I’ve lost my way and I’m freaking out I’m falling. Got to find the truth no matter what I’m doing. So scared. The dream has been destroyed because of what people are saying. And I can’t see how.
36. And the temperature is rising. I will meditate. On the drawing of a new day. The Drawing Of A New Day. The sun’s on it’s way. . Spirits start to fly. Meditate on the drawing of a new day. It’s a brand new morning.
Let it on down. Attack the one that. Take the wave home. Wishing we could fly like the birds. Got the sun in my eyes. Yeah. Fill it up with. Fix the woman who holds us down. Wishing we could fly like the birds. Flees the burden. A violent thought is all I’m thinking.37. All that you want from me. Flees the burden. Down with you! . Let it on down. Got no warning. A violent thought is all I’m thinking. Attack the one that. Wake the morning. Fixing all that try to bring us down. Down With You.
Velvet Top. I’m feeling kind of sick. Lay with you. Got a light inside my head. I’ve heard the lot. I’m breaking bit by bit. Velvet Top. Wishing we could all be dead. Velvet Top. Silent scream. Been listening for the call. I’ve heard it all before. I’m breaking bit by bit. I’m sick of all this shit. . It’s time to rot.38. Shed my skin. Lay with you.
There’s no beginning but there will be an end. . You thought you loved me. Now all my friends are gone. I didn’t want to know. Cause you mean nothing to me my friend. Cause you mean nothing to me. You thought I was your friend. But what a bad mistake. Nothing to me. Words once were spoken but never again. I didn’t really care. I might as well be dead. My friend.39. But you turned away.
I think I’ll just play the game. I feel the ecstasy. Walking down the street with the wind in my hair. Been taking a trip down memory lane. This life is bugging me . Been talking to Mary but its all the same. And now I just play the game. Been taking a trip down memory lane. This life is bugging me . I’m taking a trip down memory lane. This is what’s left of me and I’d like to say.40. This life is bugging me. I’m taking a trip down memory lane. This life is bugging me! This life is bugging me. This life is bugging me! This life is bugging me. This Life. No I’m not running away. This is what’s left of me and I’d like to say. Same old thing everyday but I don’t care. I’m tired of running away. I feel the ecstasy. This life is bugging me . Dancing with fairies takes my mind astray. .
I only ask you forgive me. I’ll do nothing without you. No-one told me what this life was all about. I’ll do nothing without you. I’ve tried so hard to find the man inside of me. I’ll do nothing. Every year that passes by might hide the shame that I have known.41. I’ll do nothing . I’ll do nothing. Without You. You never judged me for the things that I have done in my life. . I’ll do nothing . Through everything you still hold me. But I have grown. I’ll do nothing . But I figured it out the hard way.
To not be lonely. If you stop breathing. There’s no need to be this way. Haven’t you got anybody you can call? Well you don’t need a reason. . This wound is getting old. You don’t want to be lonely. Somebody help me. You may never get the chance. Haven’t you got anybody you can call? Caught up in the crossfire. Who To Call.42. I really don’t know why Your sitting there alone. I’m so lonely.
They say unless you confess and repent of your sins your soul shall be doomed for the grave. So if either is real. I’ve tried tapping in to the depths of hell. Silence. And to whom will you be a slave? .43. But all I could hear was silence. Tell me what is the deal. And all I could hear was silence. I’ve tried calling out to your so called almighty.
I’ve got to escape from the pain. Has now made me insane. I’ve got to escape from these padded walls. I’ve got to kill the force that’s driving me to a point where I’m insane. Voices Within. . I’ve got voices within my brain. The force that once was driving me. I’ve got demons feasting well in me.44.
And here I go again. I tried everything I could. My heart is Broken. And I’m still paying. Were you not happy. Drink from the bottle. You stole from me my heart. I took a journey. It’s never easy. And here I go again. When will this journey end. Don’t know what happened. Love let me be. My head is heavy. Set Me Free.45. The Pain is still inside my head. To drown my sorrows. .
) . (There’s nothing more to say. Nothing More To Say. (Nothing more to say. A brand new day. But I guess.) Every time I see Your face.) Never new how it came to this.46.) Not happy with me. It all remains the same. (Nothing more to say. (There’s nothing more to say. I feel happiness again. I’ve got no one else to blame.
The emptiness I feel consumes me. Wanting to believe in humanity. My flesh. My heart is anxious. Stirring from within. My soul. My blood. Boils with uncertainty.47. . Depression. Not able to cope with reality or the pain. Starting to shake. My pulse can be heard through the deafness of the walls. Each day I withdraw deeper inside myself. But I know it’ll never change. I have become a pawn in a demonic game. Frustration screams my name.
Because I see the real you. Hurting throughout the sands of time. Not finding what you crave. I know you feel like your all alone. Copyright© The Ramblings Of A Madman By James Bloomfield 2008. Crying out for love. Afraid of what’s to come. But one thing I know is true. Like a gift that’s never made. Abandoned and disillusioned. The Real You. What has one become. I’m here for you forever more .48. Trapped in a reoccurring dream. .
