Track Name: Sea King - In My Blood
You know my blood is filled with riches
Great thinkers and inventors too
Luxury of the highest class is what they were born into
Drug addicts with creative impulse
Witty thinking outside the box
My mental stress may suggest that I've got
That same old blood

Putting sound into pictures
Putting ships under water
Making bombs out of science
It's all in my blood

And who am I but a working class stressed out student moving too fast?
Frustrated from my situation
It's inescapable - it’s societies creation
I'm locked in a vault - concrete in my ways
Old for my age……….
Track Name: Sea King - Old Traits
I've got some old traits
that I've been tryin to shake
Old habits from the past that I woud like to keep away
No one really knows the paths that I've been down
It's gonna take some time to get the words out of my mouth

But god knows I need you to take all of it in
When I finally come exploding with the truth and need a friend
And all I'm gonna do is fall right into you you you you you you you you you
Track Name: Sea King - Turn Me Around
Heads tied up in some clouds
Don't know if it's comin down
I'm so tired of hangin around
Someone come turn me around

Someone come turn me around
Track Name: Sea King - On the Abstract
When you're feeling like a dog - there's a bone for you to gnaw
When you're running out of steam - there's a pot that's bubbling
If you're seeing too many - things you wish you would not see
I know very well you'll be - running to me to come clean

Cause I've got a lot of experience with wild nights and abstract thoughts
Come to me to feel less strange - it's all the same

Cause I've been living in a fog ever since I had that thought
Of life outside this stupid box that's caging me

When you're feeling like a dog - there's a bone for you to gnaw
When you're running out of steam - there's a pot that's bubbling
If you're seeing too many - things you wish you would not see
I know very well you'll be - running to me to come clean

Cause I've got a lot of experience with wild nights and abstract thoughts
Come to me to feel less strange - it's all the same
Track Name: Sea King - Glow
Somethings glowing inside of me
There's a beauty flowing outside of me
God, I love it so much it seems
Please don't let it get the best of me

Love is all there will ever be
Live within it so peacefully
If another tries to bring you down
Move along, move along without a sound
Track Name: Sea King - Wednesday's Therapy
Woah - oo woah - oo woah - oo woah

If I never felt the same - I'd feel the same way I do today
And if I told you that things have changed - It'd be the same as yesterday
and if I told you that I feel alive - that would be the biggest lie of my whole life

I'm drifting off again
I'm feelin spaced again
I thought I had it in my hands
I thought I had it
Track Name: Sea King - Dark Waves of Pollution
They blame it on something small
A hay that breaks the camels back
A small disruption - to jump them - throw 'em off their track

Spend your whole life in self-pity - it was known you'd reap what you've sewed and you're reaping

A loose grip on your focus - you're afraid you are losing control

you are you are you are - losing control

When your lips move - dark waves of pollution
When your eyes gaze - fear transfers to another
Where did you think you would go when you set off on this road?
When was the last time that you knew your soul?
Track Name: Sea King - Feel it Rise
Feel it rise
Rise so high
Track Name: Sea King - Flight or Flee Response
A catastrophic pattern opens it's mouth - and for a second I believe it, when I should just leave it
A pattern bizarre exists within my mind - I'm a prisoner serving an unjust time
Track Name: Sea King - Come in Contact
To come in contact with a group of those that you know will change you profoundly
To feel a pull - to see a light - to get a grip - to know that it's 'right'

At times it makes my stomach turn to see these people
I chalk it up to nervousness and fearfulness of myself
Until something comes about and changes my mind
Changes my thoughts

Something comes - burns my wires
Moves my mind - Breathe new air
Gets me high - Moves me through
This old pain that burns my mind
Track Name: Sea King - If You Only Knew (live)
If you only knew the things that I've tried, the things that I hide
And all the times that you told me - to 'get well'
I've spent my time ruining my mind
A day at a time
A day at a time

Things just aint in place
No signs of a change
No way to erase
Face to face with my mistakes
Track Name: Sea King - Various Tape Collages
i saw a girl - she caught my eye - her teeth were white as snow
i didn't catch her name - but i'd sure like to know

so i'll just keep on floatin by - i sure would like to see someone...i'm gonna go now...

//////

People are confused about my sexuality
People are confused about my style

/////

I'm crawling out from the sleazy underbelly from this world
where my consciousness is a fiery demon pulling at my heart so strong
Used to be I'd never say what's on my mind - now I'm sayin everything
I'm spillin out
Track Name: Sea King - Light in the Cave
there's a light deep down that old dark cave
it invites me by name - calms me down when i'm afraid
gonna make my way down there tonight - by candlelight
gonna find all the secrets tonight - gonna reach for the answers tonight
oh yea
Track Name: Sea King - Travellers Itch (outtake)
You know i've got that traveler's itch
But no time or money for it
Caught in the midst of societies grip
I've gotta go with whatever seems fit

Just a stranger in the middle of it
Either developed or was born with it
Havin trouble being able to sit - I need to go
Track Name: Roman Statue - Fall Into Me
Fall into me, Fall into me
Seems just like her rays
Fall into me this seems like the other way, everything to stay
And it’s not like it’s all heaven, but I keep on working around
I gotta run until I can’t work it around so easily. I want to try.
Fall into me, fall into me seems just like it’s trying to find a way
Seems just like I fall into my head
and it seems like I’m falling too easily, 'til my head keeps reaching me out too far, too far it’s too far.
Clauses send some hard to find
but it’s seen
Track Name: Roman Statue - Sleeping in the Earth
Slept outside again, well I got warm again.
I can’t move, too sore in mind getting up.
Maybe I tried too hard on myself.
If it didn’t even matter, wouldn't I still sit and wait here?
Try finding the same thing that I don’t have.
Track Name: Roman Statue - Locked in the Basement
I’m not feeling the greatest, I lost a lot of time when you locked me in the basement.

What did you feed me? locked in the basement.

In the basement for the rest of my life I don’t have to ask you why because you wouldn’t tell me why.

Locked in the basement for the rest of my life.

I don’t need a key I’m in my cell.
Track Name: Roman Statue - Keep On
Problems consist avoiding yourself
I’m looking at it now, I can see what it means
When your outside, when I’m outside it’s not what it seems, it’s not what I’m seeing; I could probably be.

Maybe my times up, if I just gave up, I just made up. If I just could give up.
Because I’m thinking about that attitude
I’m so sick of it all. Probably shouldn’t talk about it, but I have a good feeling that you’re not real.

I don’t want to go out, how could I go?
Keep on, keep on
How could I?
Keep on, keep on
