SUPERSEDE

 

Drums then 4 + 4 measures

There is a journey you can take

but few ever get there

Travelling the limitless

A single step can start

A trip inside your mind

Your chattels fall aside

You swear allegiance to none

Trusting what will be will be

Chorus One

Dropping the masks of life

Shedding the skin of fear

You become eternity

and all becomes so clear

We must believe

We are the universe

We are the stars

and every part of this earth

8 measures

We Supersede

Above the heavens and hells

We’re gonna be

Set free of these spells

8 measures

It’s time to come alive

Give away your things and fly

See yourself as infinity

Don’t need to answer why

Desert sands can blind ya

Sea of fury bind ya

Life’s a swamps of snakes

Waiting for you to break 

Dropping the masks of life

Shedding the skin of fear

You become eternity

and all becomes so clear

8 measures ya on 8th

 

We must believe

We are the universe

We are the stars

and every part of this earth

We supersede

Above the heavens and hells

We’re gonna be

Set free of these spells

8 measures ya on 8th

We must believe

We are the universe

We are the stars

and every part of this earth

We must believe

We are the universe

We are the stars

and every part of this earth

We supersede

We supersede

We must believe

that we supersede

We supersede

We supersede

We supersede

We supersede

IF TIME WE COULD DEFY

 

8 measures

Time looms it is our phantom

Clock moves with no delay

Visions of the other side

Too often led astray

 

Wars, nature and disease

Life’s fragile and we won’t last

Plunging in the endless void

We are thrown from the cast

Chorus

A deathless life would it be any better

If time we could defy

Do we really want to live forever?

We didn’t think so, we wouldn’t even want,

want to know the day.

4 measures

Like those who stood before us

Death wails at the door

A threshold we avoid

As it’s this life we adore

We must stand alone

We all have our destiny

Loners out on loan

When is the Reaper coming for me?

Chorus

8 measures lead + 4 measures

 

Yet life lies within us

Could be taken in a breath

An underlying motivation

Mortality we address

Mysteries and tales together

Must simply be alive

Grab the tiger by the tail

Will arrive when we arrive

Chorus

4 measures out

Lyrics by MH

 

 

WHERE DOES TIME GO

 

8 measures

Where does time go?

Years are drifting by

Friends are growing older

The elders age and die

Where does time go?

The seasons slip away

Like a flash in the night

Memories fade to grey

4 measures

Where did that time go?

I barely got a start

Alone with a lost soul

As someone broke my heart

8 measures

 

Where does time go?

Caught up in our lives

Going our separate ways

Lost friendships and broken ties

Where does time go?

The months disappear

Revolving around the sun

Deciding why we’re here

4 measures

Chorus

8 measures ya on 8th…

 

Where does time go?

Caught up in our lives

Going our separate ways

Lost friendships and broken ties

Where does time go?

The seasons slip away

Like a flash in the night

Memories fade to grey

Where did that time go?

I barely got a start

Alone with a lost soul

As someone broke my heart

4 measures out

Lyrics by MH

 

 

WHO AM I

 

4 measures

Who am I?

In this space and time

But a spec of sand

In this scheme so grand

Who’s this soul?

I just can’t get inside

Crawling in a hole

From this world I hide

Who am I?  I don’t know, can I lie?

Who am I?  Behind this mask I sigh

Who am I?  I think I must decide

Who am I?  The fork pierced through my side

4 measures

Who am I?

I ask you once again

I ain’t buying your lies

An apparition in disguise

Who decides?

What is right and what is wrong

Who is reality?

And what does it mean to me?

Chorus

8 + 4 measures

Who am I?

See me jolt and twitch

Lash me forever

Leave me dying in a ditch

Who’s Alive?

Screaming through their eyes

Abandoned in darkness

Aching from the thighs

Chorus

8 measures out

Lyrics by MH

 

 

HERE I AM

 

8 measures

Here I am

My gifts are buried deep

Scarcity and secrecy

My insecurities

Yet building on confidence

Converting thought to deed

Everything is imagination

Evolution of a daydream

Chorus

Here I am, Let’s flow to the sea

Here I am, Let’s fly above the clouds

8 measures

 

Eruption inside a soul

Questioning your sanity

Venturing across the lines

There is no turning back

Pulling up the veil

For all the world to see

Embarking upon creation

Engraved for eternity

Here I am, let’s flow to the sea

Here I am, we’re flying above the clouds

Here I am, let’s be set free

Here I am, the world is waiting for you and me

16 measures

I’ve been stripped of my mask

Exposed and cut in stone

Lucid interpretations

Those opinions can take any tone

Transcribing a subtle vibe

Breathing,  the breath of life

Tuning into endless energy

Channeled through the mind

Here I am, Let’s flow to the sea

Here I am, Let’s fly above the clouds

Here I am, Let’s be set free

Here I am, The world is waiting for you and me

16 measures out

INEVITABLE

 

8 measures

Spaceships off to mars

Satellites orbit high

Roads sprawl endless

Pollution rises high

Sunset on a lake

Tree branch hanging low

Canoe off in the distance

Midnight fires glow

Chorus

Internet jams a highway

Computer clicks to crash

Another filthy city

Humans surfing trash

Internet jams a highway

Computer clicks to crash

Another filthy city

Another itchy rash

4 measures

Air conditioner rumbles the window

Outside noise fades at last

The embrace of a lover

Directors of the cast

Minding the wilderness

Where instinct resides

Gasping at progression

Half of us will fade and die

Chorus

16 measures

Air conditioner rumbles the window

Outside noise fades at last

The embrace of a lover

Directors of the cast

Sunset on a lake

Tree branch hanging low

Canoe off in the distance

Midnight fires glow

Chorus

12 measures out

Lyrics by MH

 

MY VANITY

 

4 + 4 measures

I am so vain

I'll drain your mind

I’ll string you along

I want to own your mind

I'll tell you all the lies

You’re dying to hear

You'll think you got the prize

till you drown in tears

Come on all you people

put your trust in me

Ya gotta have some faith

in my vanity

4 measures

 

I tear your little heart

and rip it to a shred

I take your innocence

I’ll mess with your head

I thrive on deceit

My life is just a scheme

For I'll line you up

and steal away your dreams

Come on all you people

put your trust in me

Ya gotta have some faith

in my vanity

Come on all you people

put your trust in me

Let’s try this again

Keep your sanity

16 measures

 

You’re on my road of treachery

Walking into my foul play

With a double cross I’ll bully you

and change the words you say

You'd love to see some justice

yet I feel no shame

I'm feeling no remorse, oh no

Only yourself to blame

Double chorus 12 out

Lyrics by MH

 

 

THE MEANINGLESS

 

8 measures

Another broken bottle

Another one night lay

A laughing drinkin party

led me off astray

Oh, The all mighty dollar

The pinnacle to reach

Mansion on the shoreline

Well-tuned bodies on the beach

 

I am empty,  I am bare

Telling the world  that I ‘just can’t seem to care’

I am empty  I am bare

Nothing left to hide  as life is just despair

Years feel like days

cause time has slipped away

A ripped and torn life

Staring out at the bay

4 measures

 

Another special someone

things have hit the peak

Falling backwards blinded

another mate to seek

Carrots hang forever

always in my sight

I'm grasping desperately

trying to get it right

Chorus

8 measures

The sensual experience

brought me little gain

The values of society

Only brought me pain

Another broken bottle

Another one night lay

A laughing drinkin party

led me off astray

Chorus

Lyrics by MH

 

 

CALLING OF THE SPIRITS

 

8 measures

A hill on an old dirt road

The moon peers through the trees

A flame in a broken window

Musty curtains blown aside

Mansion lies in ruin

Wildlife scurries away

Porch hangs in shambles

Remnants of yesterday

Chorus #1 x 2

Calling of the spirits

they gave her company

Making up the future

for only her mind to see

4 measures

Helpless I was drawn in

the energy I couldn’t fight

Soon gazing within myself

as truth had shown its light

She was a shadow at the table

Staring in a trance

Dusty books lie open

As I saw the spirits dance

Chorus #2 x 2

Calling of the spirits

they gave her company

Making up the future

for only her mind to see

Calling of the spirits

they gave us company

Channeling the future

for only us to see

16 measures

2nd verse repeat

Chorus #2

 

Lyrics by MH

 

 

 

FLYING METAL

 

Turbines hit eruption

Gearing the engines up

Metal rivet metal

Floating nauts inside

Cast iron tips the scale

Heavy assembly

Blasting to a universe

Life beyond the sky

Chorus

Gotta love flying metal

igniting the midnight sky

Industrial invention

It’s the only way to fly

4 measures

Oxidizing fuel

inside a cavity

Power of combustion

Expended energy

Shooting through the atmosphere

A journey into space

Breaking free of gravity

Off to a better place

Chorus x 2

4 measures

Intellectual minds

Hierarchy of politics

Push mankind ahead

Or perhaps a bag a tricks?

Grants for results

Altered evidence

Overdramatize

Is deviation the norm?

Chorus x 1

8 measures

Verse 1

Chorus x 1

COMING HOME

 

16 measures

Twisted roads took me away

To the dark and obscene

The merciless, like a curse

None like I’d ever seen

Tension thrived before me

Thick as walls it enchained

The aspirations lay dying

It all went up in flames

I'm coming home at last

Time to change the theme

I'm coming home girl

Things are never as they seem

8 measures

 

Pulse of the city pounded

The night life tore me down

Robbed and beaten badly

I knew I had to move ahead

Promises made my hopes and dreams

But they were gone before I came

I am so stuck in misery

And curling down the drain

 

I'm coming home at last

Time to change the theme

I'm coming home girl

Things are never as they seem

8 measures
