Oracle Of Delphi (The Pythia)

ORACLE OF DELPHI (THE PYTHIA) - Written by Carroll Bryant



You're like a dream wrapped inside of a mystery
The power of love that eludes you
Escapes me

The air is so thick and dry
The morning finally arrives
I see you standing there
A princess of the world without a care
Loneliness in your eyes

You carry the torch that makes men cry
And fall to their knees
Like the Oracle of Delphi
So much thunder and lightning from the sky
And filling their needs
Like the Oracle of Delphi

The taste of The Pythia is as sour as the dust that blows in the wind
No heart beats to the thought of you
Punish them

The language we speak is far and forgotten
The knowledge we seek smells so rotten
I see you standing there
A muse to the world without a care
Confusion and the lies

You carry the torch that makes men cry
And fall to their knees
Like the Oracle of Delphi
So much thunder and lightning from the sky
And filling their needs
Like the Oracle of Delphi

You're everything I wanted which is why I ran
Afraid of your kiss and the touch of your hand
Feelings so deep for you, my Diane
Falling for the scent of your precious skin

I see you standing there
A princess of the world without a care
Loneliness in your eyes

You carry the torch that makes men cry
And fall to their knees
Like the Oracle of Delphi
So much thunder and lightning from the sky
And filling their needs
Like the Oracle of Delphi

You carry the torch that makes men cry
And fall to their knees
Like the Oracle of Delphi
So much thunder and lightning from the sky
And filling their needs
Like the Oracle of Delphi

Caught Up In The Game

CAUGHT UP IN THE GAME - Written by Carroll Bryant



You look at me
I look away
Sometimes it's difficult to say what you want to say

Where did the love go?
Ain't it a shame?
Sometimes it's easier to find some one else to blame

I know I let you down, and caused you so much pain
I just got so caught up in the game

Caught up in the game

I got caught up in the game

You got your girlfriends
I got the guys
We're both getting ready to have the time of our lives

We can't find the answers
Or the reasons why
We can't even look each other in the eyes

I know we're crazy
Totally insane 
We can't help it if we're caught up in the game

Caught up in the game

We're caught up in the game

Somewhere along the way we lost our appetite
So much going on and now all we seem to do all day is fight
But it's so hard letting go
It's like closing down a Broadway show

Free refreshments for everyone

You look at me
I look away
Sometimes it's difficult to say what you want to say

Where did the love go?
Ain't it a shame?
Sometimes it's easier to find some one else to blame

I know I let you down, and caused you so much pain
I just got so caught up in the game

Caught up in the game

I got caught up in the game

We could have done so  many great things
Look at us now, caught up in the game

We got caught up in the game

Caught up in the game

Souls Into Shadows

SOULS INTO SHADOWS - Written by Carroll Bryant



They're looking for a body down by the river
Some one died of a broken heart
Took a leap from atop of a bridge
Ripping the world apart

Nobody heard a scream or a yell
Not even a quiet cry out for help
Man or beast, they all find their god
And only time can tell

Lurking in the darkness, a glimmer of a light
Turning souls into shadows that fade into the night
A madman disease that burns in the fire
A token of desire

It feels like I'm falling, but the drop never ends
It feels like I'm living in the zone where we are friends
Maybe this is the time when I lose my mind

They're searching for something to make them all shiver
They never did find that body by the river
The current surely played a huge part
In ripping up the heart

Hear my scream, hear my yell
Listen to the quiet cry out for help
A man of beast suddenly finds his god
At the bottom of her hell

Lurking in the darkness, a glimmer of a light
Turning souls into shadows that fade into the night
A madman disease that burns in the fire
A lost bloom of a flower

It feels like I'm falling, but the drop never ends
It feels like I'm living in the zone where we are friends
Maybe this is the time when I lose my mind

Maybe this is the night that I lose my mind
