about

The Phoenix Bridge

Loud and soft. Off kilter, but on point. Perfect imperfection. A constant regrowth of musical scar tissue. An infinite pattern of destruction and rehabilitation. Contradiction, yet making complete sense. Not Grunge, just Crash.

Track Name: Half Empty
They believe in me
As often as they try
They know not the burden
They can’t look me in the eye
Sever my affections
Without ever standing by
I’m always the last one to smile
But the first one to cry

Return the heart
Before it’s past its better days
Catch you in the moment
Sit beside me, stay
Children crying because
Their mother’s gone away
She’ll be gotten soon
At the rate she’s whispering
She’s whispering
Whispering

Chorus
She’s free
Lovely
Help me
I’m half empty
My sweet
Something
I’m weak
And half empty

This sweet illusion you
Control the petty mind
Your eyes seductive
But your heart is all but blind
Your life begins to crumble between your fingers and your thoughts

All will fall to pieces if you try
You could crumble it to pieces if you tried
Chorus

Bridge
The wait is almost over
Then they’ll see in time
Then they’ll see in time
The world is on your shoulder
And they’ll see this time
And they’ll see this time

My reflection sends me
Staring back in time
As a younger man
I never questioned why
Someone tells me
As I weaken deep inside

It’ll follow you forever
No leaving this behind
No leaving this behind
No leaving this behind
Can’t leave it all behind
Can’t leave it all behind

Chorus

Bridge
Track Name: Time
Twenty years have come to pass
And this place hasn’t aged a day
Faded writing on the glass
The room is smaller than I remember

We’ve chased time
It’s passed us by
We all grow old
Or so we’re told
It takes its toll

Chorus

Your love has such a bitter taste
Sweet innocence, alas, erased
Keep on living if you dare
Believe those memories will take you there
It’s the hardest days we spend
To cling to a love that never ends
How was it everything you dreamed
When nothing’s ever like it seemed

Though time’s changed me

To the one that got away
It’s safe now to return here
You don’t recognize the face
That you admired when I was younger

We drift apart
It breaks my heart
I need to know
The love you’d show
To let me go

Chorus



Time won’t heal these wounds
These self-inflicted scars of mine
We’ll change with the seasons
Build upon the heavy line
And when you go away
I’ll be here to stay
If there’s no more words to say
We’ll save them for another day
Goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: Bring It Around
God only knows where I’ll be in the morning
This time
I guess I’m on my own
I think I’ll be just fine
Mother, don’t be afraid
I’ve got to go today
I’m never coming home
I’m never gonna stay

This dirty sound it feeds my soul
A crowded place I can call home
This dirty sound it feeds my soul
A crowded place I can call home

Chorus

Here she comes again
I’ll be here waiting for
You to being it around
If I fall again
You make sure, babe
That I turn it around

Going down to Georgia
To die
Westward to the Dakotas
To see an old friend of mine
Brother, meet me in LA
I rest my soul on fame
I’m headed to Philadelphia
To stay

This dirty sound it feeds my soul
A crowded place I can call home
Chorus

I’ll wait a lifetime to be right, yeah
To move somewhere out of sight, yeah
I’ll wait a lifetime to get high, yeah
It’s much too far for me to see
To tell me what I shouldn’t be

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
I’ll wait a lifetime to be right, yeah
I’ll wait a lifetime to be right, yeah

Chorus

The sun turned off again
I’ve fallen too far
To bring it around
Have I lost you, friend?
When I hit bottom
Maybe I’ll see you around
Track Name: Eyefly
Behind those eyes
Lie worlds beyond our own
A gentle stare, heavy
Makes me feel like home
This love that I know nothing of
I feel no fear
Spoke so soft
Whispering lonely in my ear

Aurora streams of light
Listening, holding tight
They leave me not where I lie
Die

Chorus

Sleepless and alive
Feeling your light on high
Be somewhere I like
I
Eyefly

These oceans deep
I’m afraid I’ve fallen to the dark
Angel, scarred angel
Who keeps my heart
Season’s eye, open smile
That melts my dreams away
And emptiness, to seek regress
Your truth shall have its day

Never lessening doubt
Please don’t burn out loud
Dying from inside out
Doubt

Chorus

Into the lonely night
The reason I doubt I can die
Diamond in your eye
I
Eyefly

I can’t control myself (Get Away)
I’m watching you
I can’t control myself (Get Away)
I’m watching you
I can’t control myself (Get Away)
I’m watching you
I can’t control myself (Get Away)
Control myself

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Silence
All alone in this empty place
My living boundary
Can I disappear without a trace?
Be just a distant memory?

Keep my body through the night
Return me to my sacred sorrow
Save me should I lose this fight
And dust will cover all we know

Chorus

Lay me down
Without violence
Laying face down
In the sound of silence

Does it hurt to go alone
Watch from a distance
I can’t do this on my own
When you’re gone in an instant

Chorus

Believe in me
Red sun horizon
Across the sea
Resounding silence

Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
Keep dreaming
It’s only a dream after all

Chorus

It’s over now
End your defiance
Call on your own black cloud
For comforting silence
Agony ceases
You made a difference
Rest in pieces
Until we meet again

It’s only a dream after all
It’s only a dream after all
