Jar of Flies

Rotten Apple

Hey Ah Na Na
Ignorance is spoken
Confidence is broken
Sustenance is stolen
Arrogance is potent

What I see is unreal
I've written my own part
Eat of the apple, so young
I'm crawling back to start

Hey Ah Na Na
A romance is fallen
I repent tomorrow
I suspended my sorrow
Recommend you borrow


We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home


My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead


I Stay Away

Yeah, I want to travel south
This year
Aaah, Woah, Woah
Won't prevent safe passage here

Why you act crazy
Not an act maybe
So close a lady
Shifty eyes shady

Yeah, hey Yeah, tears that soak
A callous heart

Why you act frightened
I am enlightened
Your weakness builds me
So someday you'll see

I stay away

No Excuses

It's alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind

Layin' low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I've sold

Everyday it's something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin' by myself
No excuses, then I know

It's okay
Had a bad day
Hands are bruised from
Breaking rocks all day

Drained and blue
I bleed for you
You think it's funny, well
You're drowning in it too

Yeah, it's fine
We'll walk down the line
Leave our rain, a cold
Trade for warm sunshine

You my friend
I will defend
And if we change, well I
Love you anyway

Don't Follow

Hey, I ain't never coming
Hey, I'll just wander my
Own road
Hey, I can't meet you here tomorrow
Say goodbye don't follow
Misery so hollow

Hey you, you're livin'
Life full throttle
Hey you, pass me down that
Bottle, yeah
Hey you, you can't shake
Me round now
I get so lost and don't
Know how
And it hurts to care, I'm
Going down

Forgot my woman, lost my
Thinks I'd done and where
I've been
Sleep in sweat the mirrors
See my face it's growin'
Scared to death no reason
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the things I
Read the page it's cold
And dead

Take me home

Swing On This

Mother said come home
Father said come home
Sisters said come home
So my friends said come home
I said

Let me be, I'm alright
Can't you see, I'm just fine
Little skinny, okay
I'm asleep anyway

Then I heard a voice
Said "Son you have a choice"
I then slapped my face

Let me be, I'm okay
I'm awake anyway
It's too bright over here
I can shift, cannot steer

So I drive them away
For a while, then I stay (Solo)

Now I have to go home
Do as, when in Rome

Let me be, I'm alright
Can't you see I'm just fine
Little skinny, okay
I'm asleep anyway
Let me be, I'm okay
I'm awake anyway
