Every wall's a window


Glass house, glass house, goes 'round and 'round

Sooner or later, glass house, we'll come crashing down...



I paid my rent for so many years

and I paid my rent with so many tears

just so I could live in a house of glass

that had no yard, had no green grass

It had no bushes, it had no tree's

My glass house had none of these

All my house had was pain and sorrow

I'd beg, steal or borrow just to get me to tomorrow

and when tomorrow came, it was more of the same

Self-destruction has no name...self-destruction has no shame

On the inside lookin' out, movin' backwards full-throttle

Every wall's a window when you live inside a bottle

It was a temporary move but then it opened up a flood

My landlord was the Demon and I signed a lease in blood

"From now until forever" is how the lease read

and the only way I'd move, he said, is stone-cold dead

I can't remember day-for-day how long I actually stayed

but I recall the end of fall when I cried out loud and prayed

The end of my fall, and the beginning of my spring

as I leaped into the love my Lord promised he would bring

He granted me forgiveness, he showed me truth and offered grace

He helped me move away from that frightening place

I used to pray as a child, but I never understood

until I truly saw my Lord, and saw my Lord was good

A new lease on life is what Christ promised me

I'm alive, I am saved, I am happy, I am free​

Flatlined


Nights roll into days, and days roll into nights

My mind, it sometimes strays when I turn out the lights

A crazy purple haze slowly sparks and ignites

Midnight dreams ablaze as the lowly serpent bites...



As the church bells rang, a single fang tears my skin

The noise of the the poison brings a rush from within

The venom flows deep as I weep of what I've done

A black sheep sleeping becomes a wolf he can't outrun

Jekyll and Hyde, but I can't hide from me

I no longer want to be who I wanted to be

The serpent haunted me and hunted me and dragged me away

My heroin becomes my heroine as she gets me through the day

Morphine morphing into a seamless transition

of a room within a room within a room with a mortician

A tomb within a tomb, as I lay lifeless on a gurney

Born to cry, born to die, as I ride my final journey

Forgive me, everybody, for the hurt I put you through

Faces blend together of the names I never knew

Flatlined, rewind...lost my heart and lost my mind

until I finally found the Light I was dying to find​

the days that remain


I can't run away from the day when my mama passed away
but I can't allow one day to make every other grey
I get confined in my mind when I revisit that day
but I have to keep movin', 'cause it hurts if I stay...

I see the sunshine shining as it breaks through the rains
for God took away all of yesterdays pains

My life is written, my path is drawn
It seems the Book of Life has me movin' on
Every storm breaks into a beautiful dawn
and the days that remain outshine the days that are gone...

Patiently I walk with the King of Kings
for only God knows what tomorrow brings

All that I have is this moment in time
this moment to shine, this moment to rhyme
Less than happiness would be nothing less than a crime
I've been blessed with today, and today is sublime...

Of all the days I may get, of all the days I've ever had
this is the day God gave me, I will rejoice and be glad​

Chasing love, embracing death


I can't escape worldly love, but love is oh, so elusive

There's evidence it exists, but really nothing conclusive

There's the emotions love produces; people feeling happy, mad, sad

but I can't let my greatest love affair be the one I never had

I can't escape worldly death, and death is oh, so around me

and at the end of the show it will have finally found me

There's the emotions death produces; people feeling confused, mad, sad

but I can't let the greatest part of death be the life I never had

One will lift me up, while the other will have me falling

I can't dwell on which is which because each will always be calling

Being afraid to die means being afraid to live

Being afraid to love means being afraid to forgive

From this day on, until my very last breath

I'll live life by chasing love and love life by embracing death​

One in the chamber


I saw the tears that you cried from the fears deep inside
I'm the one in the chamber and I'm ready to ride

It's never gonna stop...click, click, POP
Slowly squeeze the trigger as you watch yourself drop
Feel a sense of freedom that you never felt before
All the pain goes away before your body hits the floor
Bloodstains rain all across the wall
You rose to the world...and to the world you will fall

I know you don't want to die, but you no longer want to cry
I'm the one in the chamber and I'm ready to fly

Don't try and stop it now...click, click, POW
Barrel to the temple as you take your final bow
How could everybody leave you, all alone, to carry on
One moment you're here, and in an instant you're gone
If this truly is your answer, I guess the question was in doubt
Feel the cold rush of death as your life rushes out...

You already know it's the end of the show
I'm the one in the chamber and I'm ready to go

Can't stop the gloom and doom...click, click, BOOM
Precious little flower never had a chance to bloom
Got caught in the dark because he couldn't hear the light
calling, reaching out, in the middle of his night
He chose the voice of the world, the voice that broke him apart
as he ignored the one in the chamber...the chamber of his heart​

Yeah baby!
