Monster - lyrics

The devils smile, the looks that kill
I'll down you like this box of pills
The demons hide beneath your bed
No worse then the ones inside your head
Your crooked smile, your black tooth grin
Go so well with this shot of gin
You leaned in close and then you said
I like being the voice inside your head 
The voice inside your head

One foggy night the cross roads call
Didn't know I had a soul at all
Didn't believe but now I know
It is my soul that I now owe
Wait ten years time and then you'll see
I got hell hounds chasing after me
Is this for real? It's in my head 
Shouldn't've crawled into the devils bed
The devils bed

Ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh ohhhh
Ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh ohhhh

The devils smile, the looks that kill
I'll down you like this box of pills
The demons hide beneath your bed
No worse then the ones inside your head
You play these games but all will lose
No one could be the devils muse 
Listen close when you hear it said 
Shouldn't crawl into the devils bed
The devils bed 

Ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh ohhhh
Ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh ohhhh

Was in a band for a while, but they kicked me out. It was hard rock/metal-ish band
This was lyrics to one of the songs. Lyrics completely done by me. 

Monsters In The Dark

Now listen to what I have to say

For the wicked hide in the shadows of this day


You know nothing of what is of me

You may know the color of my eyes

But not of what they are capable to see


Now here, I've warned this upon you

For not every smile is ever true


Everything is not set in stone

You may say there is an answer

When nothing is completely known


Close your eyes, please understand

That what you may rely on is a blood-thirsty hand


Unknown of what they truly are

Watch think before you turn and talk

Someone so close to you can be so far


So remember before you go on and say

"But why would anyone do this to me anyway?"


Human nature can be full of evil and greed

Unwatched, A monster born within the shadows, full only of self pleasure and need.

Anxiety pill

Clocks slow to a crawl time creeps it's deceit 

Some days lack ambition no spring in my seat

Pounding heart sure to cave won't endure it's fatigued

Need mighty endowment strength stability proceed


This pen hits the paper racing heart slowly calms

I believe in my words the sweat dries from my palms

Trembling hands quieten be sturdy as steel

I take a deep breath... Now to enjoy how I feel

Dec 7 2013


comfortably nestled in between two rocks 


above the stillness overlooking the small village


flattened black tar rooftops


steep cobblestone paved streets


winding around the southern tip of the mountain


a bicycle ride away


too far to touch the bitter memories


my gaze is locked into a numbing trance


time stands still

Author's Notes/Comments: 


A Job to Die For?

Chasing the tails of the thoughts round my head

Sweat tattered hair in a dream addled bed

Fingers in ears humming fret threads away

Palpitations, breath racing, oh yey! a new day.


Stripped of control, coping gold leaf thin

Tootling off round the nice tight bend

Game face is melting, watch out for the cracks

Fought life for this me and I want it back!


Disbelief, fury and tiredness by turns

Is there no bloody end to the grinding churn

Good days mistrusted then bad days withstood

Willfully, nastily, misunderstood


How much is enough? Burned body or mind?

Institutionalised daftness and soft focus lies

Good human nature - you daft trusting cow

Time for the brakes? I'd say just about now.


Too risky to leave? Too risky to stay!

Words my headstone will NOT say;

She stood by the job while it used her all up

A faithful old workhorse, goodbye and bad luck.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Some of you might have read my last pissed offering on this subject and no I haven't told them where to stick the job yet,  but working HARD on creating an opportunity to do so.  Next one might be on the mental anatomy of a workplace sociopath.  Current boss is deffo a case study for that!
