This Is The Life

THIS IS THE LIFE - Written by Carroll Bryant


This is the life
Just sitting here and thinking about you
Night after night
There's nothing else that I would rather do

If this is how it has to be then I open myself up to love
If this is how I have to feel then I can't get enough

This is the life
I guess that it just had to be my time
To get it right
It's funny how things always fall in line
And I don't care what anybody might say
You're all that matters to me anyway
This is the life

When I met you
I was heading down a long and lonely road
Somewhat confused
But now my loneliness is put on hold

If this is who I have to be than I'll give it more than a fair chance
If this is what I have to believe then baby, welcome to the dance

This is the life
I guess that it just had to be my time
To get it right
It's funny how things always fall in line
And I don't care what anybody might say
You're all that matters to me anyway
This is the life

If this is how it has to be then I open myself up to love
If this is how I have to feel then I can't get enough


No, I just can't get enough

This is the life
Just sitting here and thinking about you
Night after night
There's nothing else that I would rather do

This is the life

Seraph

SERAPH - Written by Carroll Bryant


Only in his holiness 
Gracious by default
Never in such loneliness 
And in love there is a lot

Only in his holiness 

Catch him at his weakest moment
And you still cannot defeat him
Try and suffocate his meaning
And you will surely perish 
Murder everything that he stands for
if you can
If you dare
And still he shall never be forgotten
Try and desecrate his image
And you shall surely die

He can't be banished
But you will surely perish into the land of dogs
And shake hands with the evil gods

Only in his holiness 
Gracious by default
Never in such loneliness 
And in love there is a lot

Only in his holiness

Eyes Of The Soul

EYES OF THE SOUL - Written by Carroll Bryant


I look beyond your beautiful skin
I look at you from deep within
I'm dancing on a cloud
Oh, for crying out loud
Feels like I'm falling
You
I'm falling in love again

I look at you with tenderness
I look at you with sweet innocence
I'm hanging by a thread
With this feeling in my head
I'm dizzy
Feels like I'm falling
You
Godspeed to my heart and soul

I can't disregard you no matter how hard I try
No matter where I go
With all of my knowledge and still
I don't know why
I just don't know

I'm falling
You
I'm falling in love with you
Feels like I'm falling
You
Are you falling for me too?

Godspeed my love to you

The Wicked And The Dead

THE WICKED AND THE DEAD - Written by Carroll Bryant


There is no stopping this ride
You can run but you can't hide 
You can close your eyes
Still you know that someday you're gonna die
You're gonna die
You know it that you're gonna die

It's all in your head
This game they call life is for the wicked
And the dead
Without a chance you know that I'm right
And someday you know that you're gonna die
You're gonna die
You know it that you're gonna die

There is no running the light 
You can drive as fast as you like 
Evil will survive and it will find you tonight 
It will watch you die
You know it that you're gonna die
You're gonna die

Scream until your stomach is fed
It's just a thing for the wicked
And the dead
Without a chance you know that I'm right
And someday you know that you're gonna die
You're gonna die
You know it that you're gonna die

Scream!
Just fucking scream!
It's okay
We like it that way
Scream!
Just fucking scream!
Watch as your blood escapes
From every single vein 
Just fucking scream
Scream from beyond the grave
Scream because you are my slave
Scream!
Just fucking scream!
Screaming is just a way to clear your head
And to wake up the wicked
And the dead

Scream!
Just fucking scream!
Evil needs to be fed
Feed it to the wicked and the dead

Just fucking scream!

Way To The Wind (Reprise)

WAY TO THE WIND (REPRISE) - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Way to the wind
A song and a friend 
Gently to stay and then
Blow away again

Way to the wind
This message I send
Will give you my heart and then
Blow away again

Anxiously I stand there as I watch you come and go
Giving me a feeling that I have never before known
Desperately I call to you as my memory starts to fade 
Crying out for mercy as my love for is played 

Like a song

Way to the wind
A song and a friend 
Gently to stay and then
Blow away again

Way to the wind
This message I send
I give you my soul and then
You gently blow away once again

Way to the wind

Space Monkey

SPACE MONKEY - Written by Carroll Bryant 


"Take your paws off of me you damn dirty ape!"

Bang your head
Here comes another one 
The power play and .... fun is just for fun 

Love is dead
Inside another one 
I can't see their faces
I can't see no one but a space monkey
One is one but sells for two
Space monkey
From three to four to why is do
Whooze shooze?

Sure, but - it's new 
It's muzik to me membrane 
As mental as they go they do 
Sounds like a song I sang
I know

I am proud and I am cool
I talk real loud at all of the fools
Like a space monkey will do
One is one but sells for two 
Space monkey 
From three to four to why is do
Whooze shooze? 
Who wears theeze shoes?
Space monkeys do 

Whooze shooze?

My power's gone 
Like two is two but sells for one

Sure but - it's new 
Like muzik here is old to you 
Whooze shooze? 
Who wears theeze shooze?

Space monkeys do

Fire When Ready

FIRE WHEN READY - Written by Carroll Bryant


Well, they said that you're a pistol
Cute as a whistle
So I had to come over and see for myself

Well, you are locked and loaded 
My heart has just exploded
You do things to me baby, that I probably shouldn't tell

I can't believe it
You're looking so way past the fine
I bet it that you hear this, baby, here it all the time

Take me as your prisoner 
Make me your victim
Or kill me if I'm in your sights
Just hold it steady
I'm prepared to meet my destiny
All you have to do is fire when ready

We'll, they said that you were a teacher
The daughter of a preacher 
Still I had to come and check it out
To see what they did mean 

And yes, you are an angel
And when I'm looking from this angle
Like candy you appear so sweet and
A walking, living dream

I won't deny it
You could be my doom
If I even tried it
You could put me in my tomb

Take me as your prisoner 
Make me your victim
Or kill me if I'm in your sights
Just hold it steady
I'm prepared to meet my destiny
All you have to do is fire when ready

You don't take it easy on me
I wouldn't want it any other way
You make me earn everything
You won't take it easy on me
I'll walk through every open door
You make me learn everything
I want you more and more

Well, they said that you're a pistol
Cute as a whistle
So I had to come over and see for myself

Well, you are locked and loaded 
My heart has just exploded
You do things to me baby, that I probably shouldn't tell

Take me as your prisoner 
Make me your victim
Or kill me if I'm in your sights
Just hold it steady
I'm prepared to meet my destiny
All you have to do is fire when ready

Just fire when ready
Just fire when you're ready to kill me, baby
Just hold it steady

Fire when ready

The Prince Of Darkness

THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS - Written by Carroll Bryant


Kill the priests 
Kill the reverends 
Oh, hell, just kill them all

Teach no religions to the children
Let's just watch them crawl

Kneel to the liar of your heart
Kneel to the legion
Sacrifice your life and love
Purify the blood
Crack the whip on the Christians 

Stand before the altar of death
Taste the sour stench of darkness
Make your sex with the serpent 
Celebrate the evil that he brings

Bow to the dagger and enjoy the pain
Regurgitate the love
Let's torture all the people
And then we can bathe in their blood

Stand before the altar of death
Taste the sour stench of darkness
Make your sex with the serpent 
Celebrate the evil that he brings

The Prince of darkness will be your only light
Your only friend
You will live in the flame of the fire
Until the end
The Prince of darkness is the only sex
You can ever have
You can make it in the fire 
This is true power
You cannot forsake your destiny

Kill the preachers
Kill the nuns
Sex them up with deadly fun
Kiss the children with nasty tongues
 Feed them to the animals

Stand before the altar of death
And taste the sour stench of darkness
Make your sex with the serpent 
Celebrate the evil that he brings

Bow to the power supreme
And be one with the Lucifer
Your king

Be one with the prince of darkness

House Of Hate

HOUSE OF HATE - Written by Carroll Bryant


People are stupid 
That I believe
No way to stop it
No way to turn this world around
Tear this planet down
Start it all over again 
The odds are we never will

People are crazy
This I can see
No communication
Just lies on T.V.
So turn this world around
Tear this planet down
Could earth ever rise again?
The odds are we never will

We won't win
We can't win
We won't win
We can't win

It's in our own filth that we lay
It's in our own house of hate that we pray
We live in our own disgust 

We're disgusting
We're horrible
We're disgusting
We're horrible

We are pigs living in our own pigpen 
We are fighting ourselves and each other again
We are eager to go the distance
We're just not willing
And we can't win
We won't win
We will never win again

But we will try again

People are stupid
All then to know
No way to teach them
No way to turn this world around
Tear this dying planet down
Change the course of fate
It's too late
Is it too late?

It's much too late

"Yes, it is too late. We won't win. We can't win. We're much too disgusting like pigs in a pigpen. We are so horrible to each other. It's our fate. We can't change. We can't evolve. Not like that. Not that fast. This world is dying. This planet is slowing down. The galaxy wants us out. The universe."

Turn this world around
Or tear this planet down
Start it all over and over again
The odds are that we will never win
Let's try this once again
Over and over again
Let's give it one more final try

Before we ... and then we ... die

Once Upon A Time

ONCE UPON A TIME - Written by Carroll Bryant


Once upon a time I believed in god
Once upon a time I believed in love
Once upon a time I believed in grace
Once upon a time I believed in the human race

But now it's gone
Now it's gone forever
Now I'm alone
No more kind forever

Will it ever come back again?
Will I ever make a new friend?

Or will it lay in the house of never?
Never again 

Once upon a time is all that we got
Left
Once upon a time is everything we lost
Yeah

But now it's gone
Now it's gone forever 
Now I'm all alone
No more kind endeavors 

 Once upon a time I believed in god
Once upon a time I believed in love
Once upon a time I believed in grace
Once upon a time I believed in the human race

Common Man

COMMON MAN - Written by Carroll Bryant 


The meaning of life isn't in the questions
Never in the answers 
Only suggestions
The secrets passed down through time
Isn't in the travels 
Forwards or backwards
Or living to be hassled 

They are in the stars 
They are in the hearts of all of them
We may not understand
I know I am a common man

A fleeing asteroid makes us paranoid
The power of love can be the power of calm
We are frightened of them
Because we don't understand
Their presence could mark the end 
To the common man

Everything is about the action
The power of love and the power of satisfaction
The grace of god 
Oh lord 
Isn't in the religion
Isn't living there anymore

I'm just a common man

Heaven or hell
It's a rebellion 
Loudly they're yelling for peace
We're just sitting here chilling
On a planet that's spinning

I suppose things could be worse

The meaning of life isn't in the questions
Never in the answers 
Only suggestions
The secrets passed down through time
Isn't in the travels 
Forwards or backwards
Or living to be hassled 

They are in the stars 
They are in the hearts of all of them
We may not understand
I know I am a common man

And I've had enough of this

They live in the stars 
They have a heart 
Too

I am a common man

Portrait Of A Friend


PORTRAIT OF A FRIEND - Written by Carroll Bryant


If you look closely in her eyes
You might be surprised
Because deep inside you're gonna find
What you don't realize
That hiding in the child
Is a secret other life
Dreams that burn with a light
Enough to make you blind

And even in the darkest night
Comfort she will find
In the strength of all her might
Enough to win the fight

She's a shadow of herself
A victim of somebody else and

Every time I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a snowy vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time

All the time

She can make you laugh one minute
Then she can make you cry
You can think you're going to get it
And then you realize
That while the room is spinning
It's really in your mind
The gypsy girl with all her magic
Buries you alive

And even in a weaker moment
She can rip you all apart
In the gloom of impending doom
You can trust her heart

She's a shadow of the mystery
A warrior of what you believe and

Every time I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a blurry vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time
All the time

When a hug is not enough
I ... wanna find the hidden passage
To everything she loves

When it gets confusing
I ... only want to touch
Her deepest dreams and everything
That to her, it means so much

The woman hiding within a soul
Trapped by history and I know
The riddle ... can never be solved

Not tonight

She's a shadow of herself
A victim of everybody else and

Every time I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a snowy vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time

All the time

Every time I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a blurry vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time

All the time

Tears Of Love


TEARS OF LOVE - By Carroll Bryant


Inside the tears of love
Memories of us forever
Of a time we were together

Inside the tears of love
All the pain we just can’t handle
Feeling that the night will never end

When you came and didn’t stay
Now you give yourself away
To other men
Then again you are a woman

When you said I get you down
Now to know you’re not around
Never again
To be my friend

Inside the tears of love
Give and take we could not borrow
Trapped within our selfish sorrow

Inside the tears of love
All the games we had to play
Ending with no future in our sights

When you danced before my eyes
Fairy-tales that left me blind
To no avail
The Tales we tell

When you thought me of the night
Turn your head and make me cry 
I swear my dear
I couldn’t hear you

When you came and didn’t stay
Now you give yourself away
To other men
Then again you are a woman

When you said I get you down
Now to know you’re not around
Never again
To be my friend

It is the end

Inside the tears of love
Memories of us forever
Of a time we were together

Inside the tears of love
All the pain we just can’t handle
Feeling that the night will never end

To no avail - it never ends

To me my friend
It never ends 

So goes the tears of love

Angels Disappear


ANGELS DISAPPEAR - By Carroll Bryant


There’s a dark cloud hanging over head
It’s blocking out the light of the sun
When hearts break hard, it’s often said
Souls explode when the evening comes

And through it all, the ungodly mess
Is washed away by a river of tears
The hours pass in loneliness
When in the morning angels disappear

We take the precious things and we lay it to rest
The preciousness of love lays in with the dead
We always walk away when we need it the most
The preciousness of love is unveiled as a ghost

There’s a dark cloud hanging over head
It’s dropping the rain down on everyone
When hearts break hard, it’s often said
Only the fools turn around and run

And the world stands still in fretfulness
Watching as feelings cave into their fears
The answers come from outside a guess
When in the end angels disappear

We take the precious things and we leave them alone
The preciousness of love looking for a new home
We always blame the ones that we needed the most
The preciousness of love is itself just a ghost

And angels disappear
And angels disappear
The angels all disappear

There’s a dark cloud hanging over head
It’s blocking out the light of the sun
When hearts break hard, it’s often said
Souls explode when the evening comes

And through it all, the ungodly mess
Is washed away by a river of tears
The hours pass in loneliness
When in the morning angels disappear

We take the precious things and we lay it to rest
The preciousness of love lays in with the dead
We always walk away when we need it the most
The preciousness of love is unveiled as a ghost

And angels disappear
And angels disappear
The angels all disappear

My Funeral

MY FUNERAL - Written by Carroll Bryant


In a world gone crazy
One man stands alone
Waging war against his technology
Planning the leave that will take him home

In a world gone mad
One man versus society 
Planting the seeds of your dirty little secrets
Waging war against the gods of eternity

All we can do is live and die
To both of them to wonder why
There is no end and nowhere to go
Talk to you later at my funeral

In a world gone crazy 
One man goes insane
Taking his chances once way too often
Paying a debt that doesn't pain for his pain

In a world gone mad
One man versus the casualties 
Drinking the wine with bittersweet difference
Waging a war against seraphic serenity 

All we can prove is live and die
To what that means will make you cry
There is no end and nowhere to go
To seek the truth
Here is my funeral 

I don't have to be pathetic to all that I see
I don't choose to be theistic
I just don't believe 
I don't try to be so different just to be the same
I don't need an obituary just so that I can have a name

In a world gone crazy 
One man becomes a crime
Breathing in all of your oxygen 
Changing the thoughts of your perverted mind

In a world gone mad
One man versus insanity
Counting his blessings with a gun on your children
Waging a war against the pope and the presidency 

All we can do is live and die
To what we are and all we try
To face the end with nowhere to go
In search of the future here at my funeral

All we can do is live and die
To both of them to wonder why
There is no end and nowhere to go
Talk to you later at my funeral

Flat Liners

FLAT LINERS - Written by Carroll Bryant


Spinning around and around
My heart jumps up and down with passion
Excitement 
I look to the skies and I see
A raven looking back at me
My body shakes and trembles inside
The spirit exits quickly
I can't control all of my emotions
The raven kisses me

Why do I like this dying?
Why do I wish I was dead?
My soul soon stops its crying
While nothing travels through my head

Why do I like this dying?
Why do I wish I was dead?
My life soon stops its lying
While everything else travels through my head

Spinning around and around
I look to the skies and I see
Lost illusions
Fatal confusion
A country's lost identity 
And the raven kisses me
And the raven kisses me
And the raven kisses .......
