World Of Torment

WORLD OF TORMENT - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Here, in the middle of seduction
You bring me to my knees
Convoluting all my fantasies

I often have difficulty saying what I know I should say
It never comes out of my mouth that way
It’s a dark world that keeps tormenting me

Take the money, it means less to me than what you think
Steal the words I write
Go ahead, what are you waiting for?

Often times I wonder what goes on through your mind
Is it me?
Is it him?
Is it her?
Is it just a lonely breeze from Madagascar?

Here, in the center of your attention
I crumble
Wilting like a weed

You clearly close your thoughts to me
Where do you run and hide from me?
And why can‘t you bring me along?

Take the memories, they have faded anyway
Borrow your time while I play
And drink the fine wine of Etruria

Often times I squander the pesos I find on the street
Is it free?
Is it me?
Is it us?
Is it just another town to travel to?

There is no unlocked door in the tormenting world I dwell
I see heaven
I hear hell

Voices that dampen out like a squelch from a bat
In the belfry of my heart
In an old Victorian love we made so long ago
Then destroyed with our abandonment

We both made that decision, didn’t we?

Tell me something that the wind doesn’t know
Something that will cause frost bite to my anguish
Whatever you do, don’t say that
That of what I know you want to reveal
I already know you love me
But your love is hate
I love to hate that about you
Like you love to hate that you love me

You never will tell me, I know it

Here, in the middle of seduction
You bring me to my tears
Mimicking my fantasies

In or out of my life, you make my world a wreck
You make my world a volcano
You make my world a world of torment

Mummified

MUMMIFIED - Written by Carroll Bryant 



In the heart of every man
There lives the soul of a woman
And in the truth of every night
She lives deep inside
Until the man is mummified

In the story of true lovers
They will define a new beginning
And in the touch of their life
They will be buried alive
Until their legend is mummified

Every song will have its bird
Every king a queen
Every sigh will just be heard
By the way that they hold, and their spirits are set free

In the heart of every man
There lives the fire of a woman
And in the front of his lonely eyes
She appears to him each night
And leaves the man so mummified

Not every wish was made to come true
Not every wind will blow
Not every thought will be pure and new
Sometimes she will stay, and sometimes she will go

Not every star was made for its shine
Not every hope so real
Not every moment lives in Divine
So much for the way a true heart can feel

In the heart of every man
There lives the soul of a woman
And in the truth of every night
She lives deep inside
Until the man is mummified

In the story of true lovers
They will define a new beginning
And in the touch of their life
They will be buried alive
Until their legend is mummified

And in a world that’s black and white
There’s a place they two can hide
Until they’re both so mummified

Like A Shadow

LIKE A SHADOW - Written by Carroll Bryant



I can see the language in your eyes
Telling me secrets
Telling me some angry lies

There’s no more reason to pretend
The messages you’re sending me
Leading me to the very end

You’re scaring me into a frenzy
Are you crazy?
Do you love me?
Or are you just using me?

I’m hiding like a shadow
Looking for your heart-glow
Trying to find my way back out of all your yesterdays
Tell me something that I don’t know
Like you’re never going to go
Never going to go away
Until then it’s here I stay
I’ll be true to what remains
Another dog and pony show
Hiding like a shadow

I can feel emotions boiling over
Burning my skin
Pushing me to the arms of another

Where can I find a new appendage?
This water rolling down my face
There’s just too many parts that’s leaking

You’re daring me into a new beginning
Is this one ending?
Do you feel me?
Or are you just abusing me?

I’m hiding like a shadow
Looking for your heart-glow
Trying to find my way back out of all your yesterdays
Tell me something that I don’t know
Like you’re never going to go
Never going to go away
Until then it’s here I stay
I’ll be true to what remains
Another dog and pony show
Hiding like a shadow

Here it is
In one small word
Like I love you
Can you say you love me too?

Here we are
In one big world
Full of  “I don’t knows”
Where did it all go?

Can you give me something true?

You’re driving me into a frenzy
Making me crazy
Do you want me?
Or are you just confusing me?

I’m hiding like a shadow
Looking for your heart-glow
Trying to find my way back out of all your yesterdays
Tell me something that I don’t know
Like you’re never going to go
Never going to go away
Until then it’s here I stay
I’ll be true to what remains
Another dog and pony show
Hiding like a shadow

Your Secrets

YOUR SECRETS - Written by Carroll Bryant 



So, you want to take a piece of me?
Your words are a fine place to start
Just smack me so hard until I can’t see
Spin my world around in its own misery
To be the dominate one
You’re the epitome Of everything
Of everything that’s wrong with me

Once upon a lonely time
You used to be on my mind
Now I’m just finding out
That you were never the one
Once upon a midnight star
I used to think I knew who you really are
But now I know you’re not the one
All the lies you told for fun
Has led me to believe
That you’re not the girl for me
Because girl, I can clearly see
You have more secrets than anyone
More secrets than the sun

And I can’t fight your secrets

No, you can’t take another bite
Of what you know you want from me
It starts with a flash of light in my eyes
The darkness is a place to hide
Living like a solitary one
You’re the cornerstone of all my dreams
Crashing down right in front of me

Once upon a lonely time
You used to be on my mind
Now I’m just finding out
That you were never the one
Once upon a midnight star
I used to think I knew who you really are
But now I know you’re not the one
All the lies you told for fun
Has led me to believe
That you’re not the girl for me
Because girl, I can clearly see
You have more secrets than anyone
More secrets than the sun

And I can’t fight your secrets
I raise my sword to battle
All of your little demons
And girl it is a struggle

I lift my head and hold it up high
To demonstrate
I’m alright tonight

I raise my sword to slay it
The dragon heart in you
And girl you know it

I lift my head to see the damage
To eliminate
All your fairytales
All your magic spells
Don’t look at me in that way
Girl, what the hell?

So, you want to take a piece of me?
Your words are a fine place to start
Just smack me so hard until I can’t see

Smack right out of my misery

Once upon a lonely time
You used to be on my mind
Now I’m just finding out
That you were never the one
Once upon a midnight star
I used to think I knew who you really are
But now I know you’re not the one
All the lies you told for fun
Has led me to believe
That you’re not the girl for me
Because girl, I can clearly see
You have more secrets than anyone
More secrets than the sun
More secrets than the sun
More secrets than anyone

And I can’t fight your secrets

The Crazies

THE CRAZIES - Written by Carroll Bryant



Something’s pounding in my brain
I can feel you slipping away from me

Someone’s knocking at my heart
I can hear them whispering just outside the door

I need a girl to save the day
Holding me closer just to smell her

I wish I could feel the same
As I used to when I was with her

Everybody tells me I need to get back
On the horse that threw me, but it’ll only kill me
Everybody wonders if I will recover
I’m not worried
I kind of like being crazy

Something’s beating in my heart
The blood of life is the poison to a love

Someone’s scratching up my back
So much pleasure from the horror of it all

I need a girl to wash away
All the grease left from dirty hands

I wish I could be swept away
Again and again, over and over

Everybody tells me I need to get back
On the horse that threw me, but it’ll only kill me
Everybody wonders if I will recover
I’m not worried
I kind of like being crazy

This is my time
It’s all for me and I believe that
This is my life
It’s up to me to keep it or throw it all away

Something’s banging in my skull
It’s just her words from yesterday

Someone’s looking right at me
I know what she means with a smile on her face

I need a girl who likes to party
No more promises that are left so broken

I wish there was a better way
To read between the lines of the wicked

Everybody tells me I need to get back
On the horse that threw me, but it’ll only kill me
Everybody wonders if I will recover
I’m not worried
I kind of like being crazy

I’m not worried because girl you’re just as crazy as me

What Do You Do When All The Love Is Gone?

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN ALL THE LOVE IS GONE?
- Written by Carroll Bryant




People say that love should last forever
It’s such a shame when lovers can’t stay together
Something seems to slip away
Happiness is gone the next day
Two people seem to run out of things to say

People say that love is worth taking chances
But it seems so hard to hold onto romances
Something seems to go wrong
Lovers forget their love song
Two people seem to find it hard to ever get along

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you feel so all alone?
Should you find another?
Find another lover?
A heart built for two can never carry one

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you just can’t carry on?
Should you find another song to sing?
Find another heart you can cling to?
A heart built just for two and you turn around and it’s you
Standing there alone
Standing on your own
What do you do when all the love is gone?

People say you should try and talk it over
It’s such a sad day when lovers can’t rediscover
Something seems to burn it down
Happiness is leaving town
Two people wasting time on the nothing that they found

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you feel so all alone?
Should you find another?
Find another lover?
A heart built for two can never carry one

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you just can’t carry on?
Should you find another song to sing?
Find another heart you can cling to?
A heart built just for two and you turn around and it’s you
Standing there alone
Standing on your own
What do you do when all the love is gone?

We argue and fight all through the night
Tired by the light of day
There used to be love, but now there’s just not enough
Not enough to make either one of us to stay
Not in this way
It’s gone so get out of here!

People say that love should last forever
It’s such a shame when lovers can’t stay together
Something seems to slip away
Happiness is gone the next day
Two people seem to run out of things to say

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you feel so all alone?
Should you find another?
Find another lover?
A heart built for two can never carry one

What do you do when all the love is gone?
What do you do when you just can’t carry on?
Should you find another song to sing?
Find another heart you can cling to?
A heart built just for two and you turn around and it’s you
Standing there alone
Standing on your own
What do you do when all the love is gone?

All Smiles

ALL SMILES - Written by Carroll Bryant



I’m the kind of guy who thinks everything is funny
You’re the kind of girl who could make me spend my money
We’re the kind of couple that can get a little crazy
But baby - that’s who we are

It’s the kind of life that can always leave you guessing
Sure enough believing and you know that we’re not messing
Everything we do together leads right up to something
But baby - that’s just our hearts

And no, there are no aces
Up - our sleeves and face it
We - are probably so meant to be
And so, there’s just tomorrow
Down - with all the sorrow
We - are probably gonna regret it fifty years from now

It makes me laugh out loud

I’m the kind of guy that can really do some writing
You’re the kind of girl that can make it so exciting
We’re the kind of couple that keeps up on the inviting
But baby - that’s what we want

It’s the kind of life that can always solve a problem
Sure enough you know it that everybody got’em
Everyday we stay together we don’t even bother
But baby - some just call it love

And no, there are no aces
Up - our sleeves and face it
We - are probably so meant to be
And so, there’s just tomorrow
Down - with all the sorrow
We - are probably gonna regret it fifty years from now

It makes me laugh out loud

I’m the kind of guy who can’t stop thinking all about you
You’re the kind of girl that seems to like a little taboo
We’re the kind of couple that will do what we want to
But baby - all the while

It’s the kind of life that’s got both of us to dreaming
Sure enough you know it that it takes one to believe it
Not everything we touch has a whole lot of meaning
But baby - we’re all smiles
And no, there are no aces
Up - our sleeves and face it
We - are probably so meant to be
And so, there’s just tomorrow
Down - with all the sorrow
We - are probably gonna regret it fifty years from now

It makes me laugh out loud

And baby - we’re all smiles right now

And no, there are no aces
Up - our sleeves and face it
We - are probably so meant to be
And so, there’s just tomorrow
Down - with all the sorrow
We - are probably gonna regret it fifty years from now

It makes me laugh out loud

You know I laugh out loud - LOL

Born To Break Your Heart

BORN TO BREAK YOUR HEART - Written by Carroll Bryant



Looking at the ground below you
Watching as you move your feet
Not paying any attention
To the one you’re about to meet

Some love is deadly poison
Some love have shady sleeves
Some decide to be blind to them
Others will choose to disbelieve

When you look at me, what do you see?

I was called to make your acquaintance
I arrived here right on time
I came to take your conscience
I was asked to blow your mind
I’m the one to which you were warned
I’ll snatch you from the dark
I’m the one who steals your confidence
I was born to break your heart
And break your heart
And break your heart

Can you hear the whispers speaking?
Winds of change will whirl this way
Everything remains so broken
Life teaches lessons everyday

Some love is freaky wishing
Some love has shifty eyes
Some decide to take their chances
Others refuse to say goodbye

When the rain comes down, how hard will you cry?

I was called to make your acquaintance
I arrived here right on time
I came to take your conscience
I was asked to blow your mind
I’m the one to which you were warned
I’ll snatch you from the dark
I’m the one who steals your confidence
I was born to break your heart
And break your heart
And break your heart

Yes, you can run
Go ahead and hide
I’m gonna find you anyway
And take you for a hella ride

Yes, you can fight it
Go ahead and try
You’re about as doomed as doomed can be
Why you wanna deny everything?

It’s just the tripod of life

You thought I was gonna say circle

Looking at the clouds above
Instead of looking straight ahead
Not noticing the manner
In which I make my bed

Some love is barely breathing
Some love refuse to die
Some are clearly bitten
By bitter parasites

When the moment comes, which one am I?

I was called to make your acquaintance
I arrived here right on time
I came to take your conscience
I was asked to blow your mind
I’m the one to which you were warned
I’ll snatch you from the dark
I’m the one who steals your confidence
I was born to break your heart
And break your heart
And break your heart

I’m the one to which you’ll always scorn
While playing in the park
I’m the one who steals your happiness
I was born to break your heart
I was born to break your heart
And break your heart
And break your heart

Parasite

PARASITE - Written by Carroll Bryant



Lost in the peril of the night
Your eyes are like the moon
Turning your back on me
Change
Not to worry
Death hasn’t a place to go
What’s your hurry?
Maybe you can’t see the truth for like the sun
It shines too bright

Walking in the gray of pain
Your voice is echoing
Sentiments of history
Blame
I’m too frightened
Life is being so unkind
You’re enlightened
Baby you really take the cake for like your youth
It’s bittersweet

I’m flipping out
I’m giving in
I’m just a roustabout
Spinning round and round and then
I’m falling down
Is this what love’s about?
I wish for it to end
Just turn out the light
Parasite

Danger is to get too close
Your heartbeat beats with mine
Issues that never fade
Wait
Not to wallow
Apocalyptic avalanche
You’re too shallow
Maybe we forgot to breathe inside the mask
We stand no chance

Crying in a rainbow’s room
We suffocate our dizzy dreams
Empty pages of our book
Burn
I’m still bleeding
Sharp edges break the skin
You’re misleading
Baby, this time you went too far
Swimming in mortal sin

I’m flipping out
I’m giving in
I’m just a roustabout
Spinning round and round and then
I’m falling down
Is this what love’s about?
I wish for it to end
Just turn out the light
Parasite

Aristotle said to me: “Young people are in a condition like permanent intoxication, because youth is sweet and they are growing”

Live these words
They are too knowing

Doesn’t it make you think?
Choices that we never make
Emotions under the sky
Play
Pardoned expressions
No one can think like you
Be still aggression
Maybe the rise deserved to fall on top of us
Ashes to ashes to dust

I’m flipping out
I’m giving in
I’m just a roustabout
Spinning round and round and then
I’m falling down
Is this what love’s about?
I wish for it to end
Just turn out the light
Parasite

You're Not Alone

YOU'RE NOT ALONE - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Walk down the road of your young life
I will be there in spirit
My words, can you hear it?

Do anything you want
Because you can accomplish
Just be brave and make that wish

Even when you feel so down and out
You want to give up
Or just walk away
But girl you must stop
Take time to here me say

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

When it’s your time
To celebrate the things in your life
Every time you reach a milestone

Clap for yourself once in a while
You’ll feel better just to know
I’m clapping for you too

Even when the earth stops moving
You want to pretend
That this is the end
And you can’t help to think you’re losing

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

I’ll gather in the circle
In the center of your attention
You deserve so much credit
For being such a superstar to me
You do so many great things
For so many others that I
Just can’t believe that you would even consider
Wasting your precious time on me

When you’re such a special young lady
Always driving me crazy
But only in a good way

Only in the greatest way of all

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

You’re beautiful
And you’re not alone

You’re not alone

The Fraud

THE FRAUD - Written by Carroll Bryant 



She’s a Mexican girl who plays with guys
She can’t tell the truth so she tells a bunch of lies
She hides behind a fake name because she likes to disguise
Her empty eyes

She wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up and smacked her
She’s a cold hearted bitch with an even more cold laughter
When she isn’t cutting, she is on the hunt
For another boy to destroy

The only reason she appears to be happy
Is because she makes other people’s life crappy
Or at least she tries because she doesn’t care
About anybody else but herself

She is the epitome of evil, A two faced whore
Her poetry sucks  and sucks so much more
A make believe personality
Just quite simply put, a make believe girl

She knows what I say is true
I know her more than you do
But as well as one man does
Who tried to be her friend and tried to show her love

But she leads him on and to a big fall
Pretending to be some kind of Barbie doll
I know she has issues but I doubt that she cuts
Because sympathy is something she loves so much

And as I mentioned before about all of her lies
And on the first line that she likes to play with guys
Everything I written and everything I said
Is true just like the fact she likes to mess with people’s head

But one day soon it will all catch up to her
Like she would even care, I’m sure
Because I have seen many just like her
Hungry for daddy’s love in her messed up little world

So she will continue to sleep with a million guys
And she will continue to speak a million lies
Never to care and never to matter
Can’t wait for the day when her whole life shatters

And she’ll fall to her knees with tears
From the insanity of her insane years
I’ll cheer and I’ll cheer and oh, how I will cheer
Because you’re nothing but a fraud little Mexican dear
