Blind Eye

BLIND EYE

(E. Hale – R. Mazzi – R. Houdaille)
Everything I hear and everything I see
I won’t be afraid, you won’t bother me
All your evil ways with everything you do
I will turn away, you won’t bother me
Murder Greed Destruction Exploitation Rape Sex and Violence
Take your money Take your money Take your money
I will turn a blind eye
Everything I fear is everything you do
But I won’t walk away, I’ll win in spite of you
I will turn a blind eye

Scene In San Francisco

SCENE IN SAN FRANCISCO

(E. Hale – W. Sommer)
Here’s a little something that I’ve written
I know you won’t believe it but I
Want to talk about it
What we did last summer and I
Am ready to relieve it
If you think that you can take cause I
I, I, I’m going to San Francisco
I have got that letter
The one you never finished it’s true
That I can still remember
That scene in San Francisco when you
Left me in the morning
Alone without a warning or clue
When you, you left me in San Francisco
You had all those flowers in your hair like the song
One day you were there and then the next day you were gone
The truth is that you left me standing there and all alone in San Francisco
I can see your tattered spirit
Though you don’t believe it it’s true
And if you’ll only see me
I will try my best to see your point of view
I don’t know if you’re coming
But I have to keep my faith in what I knew
That I, I, loved you in San Francisco

After Tomorrow

AFTER TOMORROW

(E. Hale – W. Sommer)
And you knew you would
If you thought you could
Always tried real hard
To do what you should
To do what you should
And you always did
What you thought you should
Always did your best
What you thought you could
What you thought you could
But you noticed soon
You were not enough
There was something there
That you could not
Explain
After all these years I can finally breathe I am out of here
After tomorrow I will disappear

Never Let Me Go Again

NEVER LET ME GO AGAIN

(E. Hale – T. Bejoian)
There are sounds in the hallways and thuds on my wall
I can still feel the scorching heat from those evening brawls
When you left me in that room you never made a sound
I stood their stranded as my tears came pouring down
I remember the whispers muttered in the night
Cries from the rooms and doctors cloaked in white
You stood there in the doorway a look was on your face
Like you were being blessed with this sad and sudden grace
Let me fall into your arms tonight
I wanna sink down low and feel you hold me tight
You took me in your arms once and you could understand
Don’t you ever let me go again
You struggled for me I know for a better life
You’ve worked so many hours and so many nights
And then I went away from you into the Deep South
Hoping that its heat would burn my demons out
You’ve had enough I think you’re gonna crack
My father went away and I don’t think he’s coming back
And now you put me down each and every day
But can you remember mom that it is never/not to late
In front of the house I waited for a sign
Something that would let me know that it was gonna be alright
But now I’m older and things still look the same
Look at us momma we’re still drenched in pain
So take me in your car and we will slowly drive
Through those tunnels and those backstreets of our lonely lives
Let me fall into your arms tonight
I wanna sink down low and feel you hold me tight
You took me in your arms once and you could understand
Don’t you ever let me go again
Momma promise you won’t let me go
Momma promise me that now you know
That I never want you to ever let me go again

Thoughts of California

THOUGHTS OF CALIFORNIA

(E. Hale – T. Bejoian)
In the cold mist of the morning I went walking from my bed
I could hear the sparrows calling from the branches overhead
And darkness still was creeping over that aquatic sky
Then I thought of California but I still can’t figure why
The military officers who parade my city block
They are gazing through the windows
In a state of dread and shock
But you will not be shadowed girl you know we can’t just die
And I thought of California then as I stopped to touch the sky
Your father is a senator your mother is the chief
They brand you as a sinner so that they can play the priest
At the closing of the curtain at the breaking of the dawn
Everybody feels for certain that we’ve all done something wrong
But you shall not be crucified, you shall not be tamed
Everybody just wants to survive in a world consumed in blame
As we head to California with our suitcase full of shame
California
As the light crawls into the atmosphere like a child upon its knees
We stare through arching windows and watch the world move underneath
To the waltz of early morning to the splitting of the skies
Then I thought of California but I still can’t figure why
But we shall not be crucified we shall not be tamed
Everybody just wants to survive in a world so filled in blame
As we head to California with our suitcase full of shame
California

I Walk Alone

I WALK ALONE

(E. Hale – T. Bejoian)
There is a place I go when I am feeling low
Where the sirens fade and you can hear the waters flow
The stars lay scattered in the open sky
And those lights by the bridge shine through the night of my eyes
I met her on a bench by the Evergreen
I have learned that love is never what it seems to be
The time for tears and all of your remorse
Has come and gone with the close of my front door
I walk alone for now and forever
I walk alone for worse or for better
I walk alone for now and forever
Without you
Spring is here and I watch the flowers grow
I have washed away my fears with rock n’ roll
Flowers bloom in the middle of a deserted lawns
When the winter comes these flowers will be dead and gone
I walk alone for now and forever
I walk alone for worse or for better
I walk alone for now and forever
Without you
She lit a fire and burned all of our photographs
I can still remember the way she used to laugh
Cause the secrets that we shared they haunt me in every silent night
Just like phantoms who go off their paths and lose their flight
I walk alone for now and forever
I walk alone for worse or for better
I walk alone for now and forever
Without you
I can feel my world closing in on me
Sometimes it all feels like I’m living in a never ending dream
