Of Unknown Origin

OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Oh no, here it goes again
Placing words upon some paper
Spirit of the pen
I guess I never know exactly what I'm going to say
I only take it line for line until it goes away
Until the next time 

I write about love and hate and all that's in between  
I write about the things I saw and things I've never seen
Now I don't claim to be a brain, but still, just what I find
Is that it comes and goes away and leaves me hanging in my mind
Until the next time 

Oh, if I could only understand it, I could really be free
One of these days I'm gonna have to lasso it
Get control, you know? 

Oh, if I could only really manage it, I would truly be free
One of these days I'm gonna have to channel it
Get control, you know?

Oh no, here it goes again
Translating interpretations 
Spirit of the pen
I guess I never know exactly what I'm gonna say
I only take it line for line until it goes away
Until the next time

I write about philosophy, religion sometimes too
I write about things I've done and things other people might do
Now I don't claim to be insane, but still, just what I find
Is that it comes and goes away and drives me out of my mind
Until the next time

I'm the poetic surgeon
But I don't know where it comes from
It's of unknown origin
Still without explanation 
If perhaps someone can find the answer
Then please inform me 
In hopes that I may get control of it
You know?

The Letter

THE LETTER - Written by Carroll Bryant



A feeling tonight came all over me
While I was thinking of you
I asked myself, "Hey, what can it be? And what am I gonna do?"

I had to do something to make me feel better
So I just thought I would write you this letter

I guess we are friends, but could there be something more?
I don't know, but one thing's for sure

Every moment we're apart 
Is every moment of a broken heart
Everyday that you're on my mind
Is everyday such a lonely time
Can't you see that we should be together?
Take my hand and let's sail forever
I guess I'm hoping everything will get better
When I tell you tonight that I love you
In this letter

A feeling tonight came all over me
While I was thinking of you
What would happen if you laughed at me? And what would I do?

Could I handle all of that pain?
So maybe I won't even sign my name 

But I have to do something to make me feel better
So here it is from me, to you, this letter

Every moment we're apart 
Is every moment of a broken heart
Everyday that you're on my mind
Is everyday such a lonely time
Can't you see that we should be together?
Take my hand and let's sail forever
I guess I'm hoping everything will get better
When I tell you tonight that I love you
In this letter

A feeling tonight came all over me
While I was thinking of you
It kind of came on suddenly, but now what do I do?

I don't know but I'm feeling a little better
Ever since I wrote you this letter

I don't want to lose you as a friend
So let me finish with a near perfect end

Every moment we're apart 
Is every moment of a broken heart
Everyday that you're on my mind
Is everyday such a lonely time
Can't you see that we should be together?
Take my hand and let's sail forever
I guess I'm hoping everything will get better
When I tell you tonight that I love you
In this letter

Poetic Design

POETIC DESIGN - Written by Carroll Bryant



Here I am
On the eve of my conception 
In the web of your deception
Deceased? 
I am
With bewildered eyes I find
I am the product of your poetic design 

And I've fallen into the same old "How do you do?"
With nothing more to say except I've fallen for you
And I close my eyes again, and picture your skin
On the tip of my tongue and it's love

There you are
In a world of constellations 
In the heat of your frustrations 
Confused?
I'm sure
With entrapment close behind
You are the product of my poetic design 

And you've fallen into the same old "How do you do?"
With nothing more to say except you've fallen for me too 
And you close your eyes again and become your only friend 
On the edge of a touch and it's love

With a dream to underline 
We are the product of our poetic design

And we've fallen into the same old "What do we do?"
With nothing more to say and even less for us to prove
And the mountains we move 
And the way that we groove
Is the song in our hearts and it's love

With the passing of the time
We find the prophecy of poetic design

And the legend left behind
Is the heart of loves poetic design

I Need Love Tonight

I NEED LOVE TONIGHT - Written by Carroll Bryant 


All my friends seem to find some girl to share their lives 
Some of them can get so lucky and make them girls their wives 
I myself must face this world and face it all alone 
It's hard to walk all by yourself when you are on your own 

So please don't get up and walk away and find some place to hide
When I start letting out emotions I have kept inside 

I need love tonight 
I need love tonight
Please don't get up and walk away
Don't put up a fight 
Hold me close when we dance and darling, hold me tight 
I am such a lonely man and I need love tonight 

All my friends seem to find some girl to share their lives 
Some of them can get so lucky and make them girls their wives 
I myself must face this world and face it all alone 
It's hard to walk all by yourself when you are on your own

I need love tonight 
I need love tonight
Please don't get up and walk away
Don't put up a fight 
Hold me close when we dance and darling, hold me tight 
I am such a lonely man and I need love tonight

So please don't get up and walk away and find some place to hide
When I start letting out emotions I have kept inside
All my dreams of yesterday have crawled away and died 
I need someone special girl
I need love tonight 

I need love tonight 
I need love tonight
Please don't get up and walk away
Don't put up a fight 
Hold me close when we dance and darling, hold me tight 
I am such a lonely man and I need love tonight

Desperate Town

DESPERATE TOWN - Written by Carroll Bryant



It's a desperate town at night
And I love to walk beneath the quiet lights
And I think to myself that it's great to be alive
And it's just too bad, and more just so sad
To be all alone and all by myself in a desperate town 

It's just that time of year
When all the leaves begin to die
In their demise they bring us such beauty to an ugly world
And peace to my lonely eyes

Feeling desperate tonight 

And in a real strange way
I get excited by the smell of the air
And I wish that every night could be like the night is right now
Underneath the quiet lights in a desperate town
 
A desperate town
Where you can hang your dreams on hangers 
That dangle from a desperate cloud

A desperate town
Where you can run through it a million times
Over and over
And still you never get nowhere 
But it still doesn't get you down
Because it's such a desperate town

And in a real strange way 
I get involved in the way of its sounds 
And I wish that every night would be just like tonight
Underneath the quiet lights of a desperate town

A desperate town
Where you can hang your dreams on hangers 
That dangle from a desperate cloud

A desperate town
Where you can run through it a million times
Over and over
And still you never get nowhere 
But it still doesn't get you down
Because it's such a desperate town

It's a desperate town at night
As I think to myself
And it's great to be alive
But it sucks to be all by myself tonight
In a desperate town

In a desperate town tonight

A Prisoner's Mind

A PRISONER'S MIND - Written by Carroll Bryant



The lights are on and the shadows are starring 
My nerves are jumping out of control
The audience is patiently waiting
They want to find out if I have a soul

The beginning won't end so .....
Go where the wind don't blow
The end won't begin so ....
So go where the wind don't blow

(You know this is all I know)

For heavens sake I am but just one man
My brain is not for your dissection 
For you it must be so hard to understand
In which case, I say, pay no attention

The beginning won't end so .....
Go where the wind don't blow
The end won't begin so ....
So go where the wind don't blow

(You know that I'm going crazy)

I'm trapped all alone
Outside of loves embrace 

With a prisoner's mind I quietly go insane
With my heart and I find I care about no ones name

(You know I'm so blind now)

The lights are on and the shadows are starring 
My nerves are jumping out of control
The audience is patiently waiting
They want to find out if I have a soul

The beginning won't end so .....
Go where the wind don't blow
The end won't begin so ....
So go where the wind don't blow

(You know this is all I know)

Broken

BROKEN - Written by Carroll Bryant


Well, what are you waiting for?
You got what you came here for
A piece of my heart, and part of my soul

Hey, now what is the plan with you?
Now that you got to do what you wanted to do
Tell me please, because I don't know

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

I'm broken in pieces for all the world to see
Scattered in places where I don't want to be
The dark is so unknown and I'm still broken

I'm broken forever and forever I will bleed
Beaten and battered until I can hardly breathe 
The cold is so alone and I'm still broken

Broken, broken, broke

First you won the fight, but then you lost the war
Succumb to a lustful plight
Held victim to wanting more

Secrets that you kept from me
Needs that couldn't be redeemed 
Tell me please, because I don't know

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know - anymore

I'm broken in pieces for other loves to see
Tattered in places with uninvited company
The heart is so unknown and I'm still broken

I'm broken forever and forever this will be
Shattered and shaken until I can hardly see
The heart is so alone and I'm still broken

Broken, broken, broke

Am I still your angel like I was right from the start?
Am I still the angel of your graffiti heart?

You found a way to please me
The nerve - You to release me
You took it
A piece of my heart, and part of my soul

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

I'm broken in pieces for all the world to see
Scattered in places where I don't want to be
The dark is so unknown and I'm still broken

I'm broken forever and forever I will bleed
Beaten and battered until I can hardly breathe 
The cold is so alone and I'm still broken

Broken, broken, broke

I'm so broken, broken, broken ...... broke!

The Other Side Of Love

THE OTHER SIDE OF LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


You talk like you're something 
You act like it's nothing 
To walk up to a lady and pick her up for the night 

You got a hell of an ego 
You try to hide it but still it shows 
Don't you know it'll ruin you for the rest of your life?

You ought to take a look at the other side 
Check out the other side 
Learn about the other side
The other side of love
Take a look at the other side
You can do it 
You can get it right 
If you learn about the other side 
The other side of love 

You say your talk is just confidence 
But it's mistaken to be conceit 
You better stop walking with your nose in the air 

Girls are scared to talk to you 
There's no telling what you will do
You can be so obnoxious but tell me, do you really care?

So you better take a look at the other side 
Check out the other side 
Learn about the other side
The other side of love
Take a look at the other side
You can do it 
You can get it right 
If you learn about the other side 
The other side of love

It's not as hard as you think it is to be kind
To show some respect to the other gender

It's easier than you believe to play hard to get
Hold them gentle and be a little more tender

Make it last forever
Sweet surrender 
Not the same old hit and run routine 

You ought to take a look at the other side 
Check out the other side 
Learn about the other side
The other side of love
Take a look at the other side
You can do it 
You can get it right 
If you learn about the other side 
The other side of love

Dark Thought 2

DARK THOUGHT 2 - Written by Carroll Bryant


You stand alone inside your head
You can't escape your thoughts of death
You try to run but you can't hide
It only takes one suicide 

A legion of many
A legion is waiting for you
From the tongue of the devil
He whispers madly to you
His love is waiting
His love is waiting for you

Your whiskey breath is all you take
A crucifix is there to forsake 
It's not enough to stop your thrills
It only takes the right kind of pills

A serpents fire
A serpents desire for you
From the tongue of the devil
He beats you madly to insane 
His love is trying to find it
His love is trying to find you

You close the door that are your eyes
Cry the tears that say goodbye
Half awake, half alive
Too late now, enjoy the ride

A lesson to many
A lesson to be learned by you
The scent of the devil
It lingers there for you
His love is empty 
His love is empty for you

A legion of many
A legion is waiting for you
From the tongue of the devil
He whispers madly to you
His love is waiting
His love is waiting for you

Dark thought
Fast train
One way
Insane
One thought
No pain
Dark thought is for those who go insane

Dark thought
Fast train
No way out of the fast lane
Dark thought
No pain
Nowhere to go but to insane

A Dead Eagles Love

A DEAD EAGLES LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant


Whose is this face that haunts me in my mares? 
My dreams?
My oppression? 
Tis that of a dead eagles love that reminds me of my own?
Or a serpents tongue that tickles my remembrance?
To which I cannot say except that of what I believe
And I believe that love cradles the broken heart in its own loneliness 
And puts to rest the fear of its own malice and hatred 
And hatred is its own reflection that cannot be seen by other than its soul
That soul lives in the dark of a different shadow on the face that haunts my religion 
My self unknown is my religion in my nonreligious faith
For what is the meaning of a faith if not a purpose does it serve?
So, the travels of my blood through a highway of veins is destined to become disappointed 
As soon as it discovers its purpose is far greater than its journey
And puts another wrinkle on the face that haunts my mares
The tear becomes my conscience 
My conscience becomes my reality
Reality becomes my face

Mr. Songwriter

MR. SONGWRITER - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Mr. Songwriter, could you write me another song? 
The days have been way too short
The nights are way too long

Mr. Songwriter, could you write me a number one?
It used to be it came so easy
Now it's hard just to get along 

I used to know a singer down in Nashville
He always tried to be the best 
But his talent soon burned out
He ended up like all the rest 
He had a few hits and then he faded away
I sure hope it doesn't happen to me
Without this musical talent I wonder where would I be?

Mr. Songwriter, could you write me another song? 
The days have been way too short
The nights are way too long

Mr. Songwriter, could you write me a number one?
It used to be it came so easy
Now it's hard just to get along 

He's drinking every night down at Maxi's 
Putting down whiskey like water 
He talks about a life that he once had
Everybody laughs and walks away 
Just another crazy man who lost his mind 
Oh, but how I remember him 
He was famous in his time 

Mr. Songwriter, could you write me another song? 
The days have been way too short
The nights are way too long

Mr. Songwriter, could you write me a number one?
It used to be it came so easy
Now it's hard just to get along

MissDamnPerfect27

MISSDAMNPERFECT27 - Written by Carroll Bryant


"I'm addicted to the internet. I'm addicted to the AOL chat-rooms. I'm addicted to her ....."


Well, you're strutting your stuff on the internet
No remorse, no regret 
I got an image of you in my mind and I bet
You're someone I will never forget

The way you talk so free and wild
Makes the man in me cry like a child
I know in my heart it's just the way you are
A digital sky where you're the only star I see

Missdamnperfect, talk to me
Missdamnperfect, can't you see
That I'm sitting on the edge of my damn seat
Missdamnperfect .... please talk to me (again)

Well, you're kicking my ass with everything you say
I should fall in love with you now any day 
I got a thing for you so don't go away
It's a thing for you in the naughtiest way 

The way you chat inside a room
Is leading my heart to it's digital doom
If I kiss you once I will kiss you twice
Looks like I'm staying up all-night (again)

Missdamnperfect, talk to me
Missdamnperfect, can't you see
That I'm sitting on the edge of my damn seat
Missdamnperfect .... please talk to me (again)

Anticipation is my only friend right now
My exclamation is nothing but a hungry WOW!

Anticipation is my only thing right now
My emoticon is nothing but a goddamn ....... 

I have to meet you somehow ..... 

The way you talk so free and wild
Makes the man in me cry like a child
I know in my heart it's just the way you are
A digital sky where you're the only star I see

Missdamnperfect, talk to me
Missdamnperfect, can't you see
That I'm sitting on the edge of my damn seat
Missdamnperfect .... please talk to me (again)

The Proposal

THE PROPOSAL - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I like the way you walk into a crowded room
And every eye known to man turns and looks at you

I like the way it feels when you are next to me
And to know I'm the guy every guy wishes to be

And you know they do
Want to be standing next to you
I'm the one who can't believe 
That you're the one standing next to me

You know it's true
I do really love you

I like a gentle breeze on a sunny summers day 
In a field underneath a lazy tree

I like the way you hold my hand and kiss me endlessly 
And I like the words of love that you always speak to me

And you know I do
Want to always be with you
And I really just can't believe
All the things that life has given me

You know it's true
It has given me you

And I really like the hopes and dreams
That you have given me 

I really do love you

I like the way you think with your mind
I like the  tenderness you offer me at night
But what I really love above all else in this life
Is the chance for me to ask if you would like to be my wife? 

I'm on my knees

And yes, it's true
I want to spend the rest of my days here with you
Forever and for the whole world to see
You with me

You know it's true
I do really love you

And you know it's true
That I want to marry you
It's all I think about and everything I dream
You with me

You know it's true
I do really love you

Heart Of Stone (Invisible Tomb)

HEART OF STONE (INVISIBLE TOMB) - Written by Carroll Bryant 



You have got a heart of stone
And I can't leave your memory alone
What can I say?
What am I to do?
I guess I could have a heart of stone like you
Yes, I guess I could have a heart of stone too

You have no idea of what it is that I am going through
If you did you would be here 
Making me feel like a love struck fool

If I fly away tonight would you fly with me?
We can put our history to past
If I danced in candlelight would you dance with me?
We could find a way to try and make it last 

But you have got a heart of stone
And I can't walk away from this love all alone
What can I say?
What am I to do?
I guess I could have a heart of stone like you
Yes, I guess I could have a heart of stone too

If I made my bed would you help me mess it up?
You can take forever to answer me
If I was some juice would you gladly drink me up?
You can take a lifetime to tell me

You have no idea of all the fears I feel are coming true
If you did you would be here
But instead I'm trapped inside an invisible tomb

If I fly away tonight would you fly with me?
We can put our history to past
If I danced in candlelight would you dance with me?
We could find a way to try and make it last

You have got a heart of stone
And I can't leave your memory alone
What can I say?
What am I to do?
I guess I could have a heart of stone like you
Yes, I guess I could have a heart of stone too

Silence Of The Heart

SILENCE OF THE HEART - Written by Carroll Bryant 


We came a long, long way
So why this sudden intimate breaking up point of time?
There's nothing left to say
So cry a tidal river sea 
There's nothing left of you and me 

Silence of the heart
Where did it go, what we felt inside? 
Do we know why it's died?
Now we play the part
Of two fools who tried their best 
Both of whom failed the test and watched it slipped away 
There is no tomorrow
Only today

We came a long, long way 

I guess we tried to talk
But frustrations gravity was weighing heavy on you and me
I guess we tried to think it through 
But our minds were playing dead
Our hungry souls were never fed

Silence of the heart
Can it change? Don't bet on it
We gave up, had to quit
And now we play the part
Of two fools who walked away
Turned the corner, refused to stay
There is no tomorrow
Only today

We came a long, long way

Tried and true 
You lost me and I lost you
Time too slow
We came and went 
And watched each other come and go - Away

And it's tearing me apart

Silence of the heart
Where did it go, what we felt inside? 
Do we know why it's died?
Now we play the part
Of two fools who tried their best 
Both of whom failed the test and watched it slipped away 
There is no tomorrow
Only today

There is only today 

We came a long, long way - To say goodbye

Petrified

PETRIFIED - Written by Carroll Bryant



They're sending me postcards from somewhere on the moon 
Asking me to visit them real soon
They're a spooky kind of people, but they don't understand
I live my life nothing shy of a simple man

Come take a ride aboard this crazy train
Where you can fly through the skies and fall like the rain
It blows my mind, but it's driving me insane
And it touches my heart 

I'm petrified 

They're sending me signals from somewhere up in space
Asking me to describe my face
They're a curious kind of people, but they can't comprehend 
I live my life alone and I don't want another friend

Come take a ride aboard this crazy train
Where you can hide your feelings and lose what you gain
It's all right, but it's causing me some pain
And it eats at my heart

I'm petrified 

And when they dial my number I pretend I'm someone else
I wonder if they'll ever figure it out?

And in my peaceful slumber I hear them talking to themselves 
I wonder if they'll ever figure me out?

They're sending me postcards from somewhere on the moon
Asking me to visit them real soon
They're a scary breed of creatures, but they don't understand
I live my life nothing short of green eggs and ham

Come take a ride aboard this crazy train
Where you can fly through the night and fall like the rain
It blows my mind, but nothing will ever change 
And it touches my heart

I'm petrified

Come take a ride aboard this crazy train
Where you can hide your feelings time and time again
No need to fight as it is your only shame
And it eats at my heart

I'm petrified 

And it's all that I got ..... I'm petrified

Graffiti Hearts

GRAFFITI HEARTS - Written by Carroll Bryant


We keep running this race
Somehow we got it in our heads
We got to finish in first place
With a finger on the trigger
We are prepared to eliminate 

The prophets spread the word
Somehow we got too busy in our lives
And I don't think that we heard

How can it be we multiply our pain?
In a world we invented and intended to be sweet
Somehow I tend to start believing that I don't agree
This isn't the way your king intended for it to be

And then at times I get my doubts
Is he even watching us at all?
You have to die in order to get out
Meanwhile, they watch you crawl
I still can't figure out how to solve this crazy case
Have you ever held the hand of god?
Have you ever seen his face?

Sometimes I think that we're all insane
On the verge of breaking down
And the air that we breathe is a game
Where the objective is "Don't you dare make a sound"

In our hand, the book
We keep turning the pages
Reading what we already read
And I think that is a shame
From our very own guidance, we're already dead

Then at times I get so crazy
Does he even really care at all?
And how can I expect to get even
If the writing isn't on the wall
I still can't figure out how to leave without a trace
Have you ever held the hand of god?
Have you ever seen his face?

Are we having too much of a good time?
Such a good time we easily disregard 
Can we change what we can't learn?
And can we do it without graffiti hearts?

Are we getting too much of a good thing?
Such a good thing we try too hard
Can we save what we can't earn?
Or are we playing with a stacked deck of cards?
Can we do it without graffiti hearts?

We keep running this race
Somehow we got it in our heads
We got to finish in first place
With a finger on the trigger
We are prepared to eliminate

And then at times I get my doubts
Is he even watching us at all?
You have to die in order to get out
Meanwhile, they watch you crawl
I still can't figure out how to solve this crazy case
Have you ever held the hand of god?
Have you ever seen his face?

Have you ever held the hand of god?
Have you ever really seen his face?

Everybody Knows

EVERYBODY KNOWS - Written by Carroll Bryant


You got the power in the palm of your hand
Is there something to prove to use as a lesson?
What is fair?
What is wrong?
What is in the truth?
Is purgatory invading your somnolence? 

What the heart takes, the heart breaks
Everybody knows
When the secret doesn't keep it
Promises show
And it doesn't take a genius to figure it out 
To keep it is to believe in it and everybody knows

Your questions need answers for you to understand
Is the seed of love so hard of a problem?
What is there?
What is seen?
What is in the news?
Is happiness causing your disunity? 

What the heart takes, the heart breaks
Everybody knows
When the secret doesn't keep it
Promises show
And it doesn't take a genius to figure it out 
To keep it is to believe in it and everybody knows

The magic is living on the tip of your tongue 
Is there something constructive to do with your mind?
What is where?
What is up?
What is going on?
A rainbow in the heart is your picture of love

What the heart takes, the heart breaks
Everybody knows
When the secret doesn't keep it
Promises show
And it doesn't take a genius to figure it out 
To keep it is to believe in it and everybody knows

What the heart takes, the heart breaks
Everybody knows
When the secret doesn't keep it
Promises show
And it doesn't take a genius to figure it out 
To keep it is to believe in it and everybody knows


You got the power in the palm of your hand
Is there something to prove to use as a lesson?

Be With You

BE WITH YOU - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Morning dew, morning eyes
Sun shinning bright
Not a cloud in the sky
Oh darling, what a wonderful night last night
Touching, kissing
Loving so right
Oh darling, you make me feel alive

Be with you
I only want to be with you 
No other girl will ever do
You know this is true
Be with you
I only want to be with you
Girl, your love is so warm and new
All I want to do is to be with you

Midnight moon, making love
Time is so sweet 
When we can't get enough
Oh darling, what a wonderful life this time
Holding, breathing
Moment so right
Oh darling, you're burning up my mind

Be with you
I only want to be with you 
No other girl will ever do
You know this is true
Be with you
I only want to be with you
Girl, your love is so warm and new
All I want to do is to be with you

Everyday is a love bouquet filled with soft hugs and kisses
Every night is such a delight 
Before you - I didn't know what was missing in my life 

 Morning dew, morning eyes
Sun shinning bright
Not a cloud in the sky
Oh darling, what a wonderful night last night
Touching, kissing
Loving so right
Oh darling, you make me feel alive

Be with you
I only want to be with you 
No other girl will ever do
You know this is true
Be with you
I only want to be with you
Girl, your love is so warm and new
All I want to do is to be with you

American Yankee

AMERICAN YANKEE - Written by Carroll Bryant


Take it or leave it
You can't believe it
Has justice really gone this bad?
It's the saddest day in every way
And freedom has been all but bagged

The price that you're paying
Well, you're not saying
I suppose the truth is still there
But it's the way that it's done that is leaving you stunned
Are you the only one who cares?

This is America the great
It stinks in here, I have to say
This is a Yankee Doodle place
There's nothing left but a lonely face 

This is America the great
It has become a pure disgrace
This is a Yankee Doodle thing
There's nothing left to brag about 

Love it or leave it
You can't conceive it
Has everyone just gone insane?
The power of the people cannot develop 
While the government keeps playing its games

Too much red tape to investigate
And the flag can no longer wave
It's the way of the new land you ignorant young man
Just slaves right to your graves

This is America the great
Too bad you can't make your escape
This is a Yankee Doodle date
With another communist face

This is America the great
Come on in, you know you're late
This is a Yankee Doodle drink
Without your hat it's hard to think

Uncle Sam is on the rise my friend
Telling lies again
The way it always is and has always been
Father time has left our side again
Can't face the bitter end
The way it always is and has always been

And will again

Take it or leave it
You can't retrieve it
The thought of it just gets you down
 It's the constitution of the new revolution 
That keeps on coming back around

This is America the great
It stinks in here, I have to say
This is a Yankee Doodle place
There's nothing left but a lonely face

This is America the great
It has become a pure disgrace
This is a Yankee Doodle thing
There's nothing left to brag about

Nothing left to sing about

Sycamore Street

SYCAMORE STREET - Written by Carroll Bryant


You touched my heart
Blew kisses in the wind
And it felt like love
Then I close my eyes again

You were the lucky one
And I thought about all the things that we done
Reason seems to try and run
At the touch of a hand
I thought you would understand because I don't

The house is empty still
It's a curse that some believe
And I know that it was wrong
To go back to Sycamore Street

You were the lonely one
And I thought about the way that it was
Things seem to come undone
At the touch of a hand
I hoped you would understand because I don't 

And the memories seem to come
It's a curse that some believe
And I know that it was wrong
To come back to Sycamore Street

And I know that it was wrong
Walking away from Sycamore Street

You were the lucky one
And I knew you well when we were young
Reason seems to be so dumb

You were the lonely one
And I thought about all the things that we done
Reason seems to try and run
At the touch of a hand
I wanted you to understand because I don't

The house is empty still
It's a curse that some believe
And I know that it was wrong
Walking away from Sycamore Street

And I know that it was wrong
Walking away from Sycamore Street

You To Your Love

YOU TO YOUR LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant 



You're standing alone in the middle of your pain
Center of your own attention and crying again
You're asking me questions that I cannot answer
The mystery that surrounds you just goes on its way

This is your crazy life
You can do what you want
Give up on your heart and throw away your love
This is your lonely moment
Cry all you want
Time will mend your heart, but it's you to your love
Time will heal your heart, but it's you to your love

Now you're walking away from all that you know
Lost in your total innocence and nowhere to go
Have you hope in your passion that I cannot question?
The misery that will haunt you as you're walking away

This is your crazy life
You can do what you want
Give up on your heart and throw away your love
This is your lonely moment
Cry all you want
Time will mend your heart, but it's you to your love
Time will heal your heart, but it's you to your love

There are people at this moment more afraid than you
When suicide's their closest friend and in their own way
That's what they do

So forget about my sympathy
You just might get my empathy
For the pain of another persons soul is greater than my own

You're hiding the truth deep down inside
Talking in circles with death in your eyes
If there's ever a reason then I guess you will find
That of what you're looking for with an open mind 

This is your crazy life
You can do what you want
Give up on your heart and throw away your love
This is your lonely moment
Cry all you want
Time will mend your heart, but it's you to your love
Time will heal your heart, but it's you to your love

Time will mend your heart .... but it's you .... to your love

The Feeling

THE FEELING - Written by Carroll Bryant 


There must be a reason, but I haven't got a clue 
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

I'm falling in too deep, and I don't know what to do 
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

I know that we just met, but I can't forget your name
I know that we just met, but I can't forget your face 

There must be a reason for the meeting of us two
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

We've only talked for a minute, and maybe for a few 
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

Will our lips ever meet?
Tell me they will if but for just one time 
Will it be sour or will it be sweet?
Tell me it will blow my freaking mind 

There must be a reason, but I haven't got a clue 
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

I'm falling in too deep, and I don't know what to do 
Why am I feeling this feeling for you?

Let us please explore this feeling that I am feeling for you

Sex Your God

SEX YOUR GOD - Written by Carroll Bryant


Can you hear the words coming from heaven?
Sounds like sarcasm in the sky

Can you hear the devil always laughing? 
I think he wants us all to die

There is no need to masturbate your brain
Just to ejaculate your thoughts all over the place 

Test your motion and feel the power
Walk the tightrope 
Everybody, sex your god

Pull the trigger and then take a shower
Wash the sins away
Everybody, sex your god

I am to think that peace is found in heaven
Just another lie within the human race?

I do believe that evil points its fingers
I think it always sets the pace

There is no need to stimulate your faith
Just to gain confidence to open up your gate

Test your motion and feel the power
Walk the tightrope 
Everybody, sex your god

Pull the trigger and then take a shower
Wash the sins away
Everybody, sex your god

I crucified time without any reason
Turned the key
Opened the door
I tried to hide my thought-out plan of treason
Catching myself asking what it all was for

All I want is more

But I say .....
We're all living in a world of sins
In a world of sins we shall believe
Have mercy!

Test your motion and feel the power
Walk the tightrope 
Everybody, sex your god

Pull the trigger and then take a shower
Wash the sins away
Everybody, sex your god

There is no need to masturbate your brain
Just to ejaculate your thoughts all over the place

Sex your god!

Lifeline

LIFELINE - Written by Carroll Bryant



I know there's a reason for existing 
There's just got to be more than what we can see

Temptations aren't easy to resisting 
Open up the door to the fresh air you can breathe 

I never thought that I would dance with you
It's like a very perfect dream come true
And I never thought I would be with you 
It's like nothing that I ever knew

You are giving me a lifeline 
You're good for me, and I ain't gonna give you back
You are giving me a lifeline 
You are to me everything and that's a matter of fact
Oh baby

Maybe we can't help this situation 
What could be so strong for that I to feel this way?

I am the gun, you're ammunition 
What would be so wrong if I were to let you stay? 

I never thought that I could love on you
It's like a very perfect dream come true
And I never thought that you would love on me too 
It's like nothing that I ever knew

You are giving me a lifeline 
You're good for me, and I ain't gonna give you back
You are giving me a lifeline 
You are to me everything and that's a matter of fact
Oh baby

It's like a night so full of stars
Where all of my dreams come true
It's like this, so good it feels
So maybe we're crazy
Maybe we're fools 

I never thought that I would dance with you
It's like a very perfect dream come true
And I never thought I would be with you 
It's like nothing that I ever knew

Nothing but a dream come true

You are giving me a lifeline 
You're good for me, and I ain't gonna give you back
You are giving me a lifeline 
You are to me everything and that's a matter of fact
Oh baby

Mystery Girl

MYSTERY GIRL - Written by Carroll Bryant


Mystery girl stepped off the train
Wearing her diamonds and pearls 
She's a high class lady bred from a rich and sassy world

Out to prove something as she wore
Leather and nothing but black
With legs all the way to you know where
Gave me such a sex attack

What do you want with my heart?
What do you want with my soul?
What do you want with my love?
Baby, I gotta know

She talked real tough as she touched me
With her soft and sultry hands
She's doing something to me I don't understand

Caught in her spell I felt her
Penetrate in through my skin
She opened her doors and boy did she ever let me in

What do you want with my heart?
What do you want with my soul?
What do you want with my love?
Baby, I gotta know

What do you want with my heart?
What do you want with my soul?
What do you want with my love?
Baby, I gotta know
