Top Of The Bottom (Of The World)

TOP OF THE BOTTOM (OF THE WORLD) - Written by Carroll Bryant 




When I had you
I had everything that I wanted
I had nothing to lose except everything
I was a fool
I threw away anything that didn’t excite me
In my blind haste
I threw you away

Now here I am
Standing on the top of the bottom of the world
This was the plan
That with open eyes I didn’t see coming
Now here I am
Sleeping all alone without your sweet love
Now where it all stands
I’m standing on the top of the bottom of the world, again

When I had you
I had the universe in the firm of my grip
I had nothing to gain except redemption
I was a fool
To let it all go without exception
In the wake of my pride
I threw you away

Now here I am
Standing on the top of the bottom of the world
This was the plan
That with open eyes I didn’t see coming
Now here I am
Sleeping all alone without your sweet love
Now where it all stands
I’m standing on the top of the bottom of the world, again

Just one more chance I’m thinking
I could turn my life around
There’s too much drama in the mood of my drinking
You were the solid ground
And if I could talk to you again
I would say to let’s be friends
Let’s just give it one more try and then
You can watch me throw it all away again

When I had you
I had everything that I wanted
I had nothing to lose except everything
I was a fool
I threw away anything that didn’t excite me
In my blind haste
I threw you away

Now here I am
Standing on the top of the bottom of the world
This was the plan
That with open eyes I didn’t see coming
Now here I am
Sleeping all alone without your sweet love
Now where it all stands
I’m standing on the top of the bottom of the world, again

And on top of all that, I’m standing here alone without you girl
Standing on the top of the bottom of the world

Standing on the top of the bottom of the world, again

Just Barf

JUST BARF - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I was walking down the street one day
Feeling like to fly away
Saw my girl and my best friend
My whole world started to spin

She was wrapped inside his arms
He was tasting her sweet charms
I have never been so alarmed

Just stop!
Say what?
I feel like I wanna barf

They what?
Just stop!

Just barf

Maybe if I had a job
Maybe if I weren’t a slob
I could get her back to stay
And she would never ever leave

She had her hands against his ass
My heart never beat so fast
My whole future was the past

Just stop!
Say what?
I feel like I wanna barf

They what?
Just stop!

Just barf

In the universe of life
One must search if one should find
That not every girl is fit for love

Somewhere in this galaxy
There’s a girl just right for me
Still my eyes just can’t believe what they see

Now it’s getting real

I was walking down the street one day
Feeling like to fly away
Saw my girl and my best friend
My whole world started to spin

She was using her sweet tongue
He was having so much fun
Oh, my God, aren’t they done?

Just stop!
Say what?
I feel like I wanna barf

They what?
Just stop!

Just barf

Just stop!
Say what?

I think that I am gonna hurl

One Heart To Give

ONE HEART TO GIVE - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I can’t begin to tell you
How it feels to be alive
When everything is new again
You’ll know why … I say
I can’t even fathom
Rain without the sun
To shine under the spotlight
In front of everyone … you know

You only got one time
One life
One shot to get it right
You only have one world
To live
One night for just one kiss

You only got one heart to give

I can’t begin to tell you
How it feels to be alive
When everything is new again
You’ll know why … I say
I can’t even fathom
Rain without the sun
To shine under the spotlight
In front of everyone … you know

You only got one time
One life
One shot to get it right
You only have one world
To live
One night for just one kiss
You only got one word
One thought
One fight left for to win
You only have one breath
To breathe
One hope to re-begin

You only got one heart to give

I can’t begin to tell you
How it feels to be alive
Or hold your hand in mine
Or hold yourself to me

You only got one time
One life
One shot to get it right
You only have one world
To live
One night for just one kiss
You only got one word
One thought
One fight left for to win
You only have one breath
To breathe
One hope to re-begin

Again

You only got one heart to give

Why?

WHY? - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Why can’t you be my prince charming?
I want to be your princess
Why can’t we hold hands watching the sun set?
I want to be your dawn
Why can’t I hold you in my arms?
I want you to hold me in yours
Why can’t I kiss your lips?
I want you to kiss mine
Why can’t I taste your love?
I want you to taste my heart
Why can’t you speak words of affection to me?
I whisper them to you all the time
In the wind
Like the song you wrote
I play it in my mind all the time
Just like every time I see you
I take a photograph with my eyes

Why can’t I make you smile?
All my smiles are yours if you want them
Why can’t you need me?
I find it unbearable living without you
Why can’t I make you happy?
You make me happy with a mere thought of you
I want to dance on the moon with you
Just like the song you wrote
That’s how high I want us to go
To be
Together

Why can’t you love me?
I love you

Nothing But Love

NOTHING BUT LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Come and make a new friend
Hanging on a weekend
Buddy grab a cold one
Gonna have a little fun

We can watch the ball game
We can watch it all day
Aint it nice to know there’s a place you can go
If you ever want to get away
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Nothing but love here
Nothing but love
In a world today that you can’t escape
Everybody so full of hate
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Come and get it on then
Hang it by the balls and
Buddy grab a wet one
She’s a lot of fun

We can watch the rain fall
Get a little, get a lot
Aint it nice to know there’s a place you can go
If you ever want to get away
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Nothing but love here
Nothing but love
In a world today that you can’t escape
Everybody so full of hate
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Life can be our party
Something we can celebrate
People with the good hearts
Hating all the hate

Come and make a new friend
Hanging on a weekend
Buddy grab a cold one
Gonna have a little fun

We can watch the ball game
We can watch it all day
Aint it nice to know there’s a place you can go
If you ever want to get away
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Nothing but love here
Nothing but love
In a world today that you can’t escape
Everybody so full of hate
There’s nothing but love here
Nothing but love

Dead Mexicans

DEAD MEXICANS - Written by Carroll Bryant 




Living on the edge
A little obtuse
Shaking it to break it
Breaking it loose

We are freedom hoarders racing to the border
Fighting for our lives in almost every way we can

We are dead Mexicans
Our eyes are blind to the laws of the land
We are dead Mexicans
Wipe the smile from our faces
We are – dead

Gringo is the thing we like to say
We call it or someone every single day
Senoritas waiting for us when we get home
Illegal aliens and feeling all alone

We are dead Mexicans
Our mouths are open and we’re running out of oxygen
We are dead Mexicans
Understand we stand alone
We are, for all intended purposes – dead

Living on the edge – we are
A little weaker for the wear – we are
Shaking these things that we are called
Breaking these chains

We are freedom hoarders racing to the border
Fighting for our lives in almost every way we can

They call us crazy but maybe we are anchor babies
Satisfaction guaranteed and then it’s America or bust
Oh, baby

We are dead Mexicans
Our eyes are blind to the laws of the land
We are dead Mexicans
Wipe the smile from our faces

We are dead Mexicans
Our mouths are open and we’re running out of oxygen
We are dead Mexicans
Understand we stand alone
We are, for all intended purposes – dead
We are
We are – dead
We are
We are dead Mexicans
We are

Deport us if you can find us
Kill us and we are already – dead

Clouded By Thoughts

CLOUDED BY THOUGHTS - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I’m clouded by thoughts
We need to talk
There’s something wrong in the machine

I don’t understand
Why we can’t hold the hands
We’re breaking apart and you know what I mean

Every time we make the love it turns into a fight
Just a couple of hearts looking for a place to hide

You’re doing it just to beat her
I’m nothing but some kind of prize
I’m doing it just to spite her
I’m trying to bury her alive
What are we doing for ourselves?
We can’t keep up the scratch and bite
This time we find the answers
This time we take it eye to eye

I’m clouded by dreams
We need to scream
There’s something wrong inside of our way

I don’t give a damn
Why can’t we keep to plan?
It’s crashing all around and nothing is all that we can say

Every time we kiss it lip to lip it turns into a flood
Just a couple of hearts looking to taste each others blood

You’re doing it just to beat her
I’m nothing but some kind of prize
I’m doing it just to spite her
I’m trying to bury her alive
What are we doing for ourselves?
We can’t keep up the scratch and bite
This time we find the answers
This time we take it eye to eye

“Look into my eyes”

Is this what it all comes down to?
You … me …. A shadow?
Is this what we’re going to war for?
What about us?
Who are we entertaining? … Her?

I’m clouded by thoughts
We need to walk
There’s something wrong and it’s not what it may seem

Every time we make the love it turns into a fight
Just a couple of hearts looking for a place to hide

I’m running away so enjoy the ride

You’re doing it just to beat her
I’m nothing but some kind of prize
I’m doing it just to spite her
I’m trying to bury her alive
What are we doing for ourselves?
We can’t keep up the scratch and bite
This time we find the answers
This time we take it eye to eye

You’re doing it just to beat her
I’m nothing but some kind of prize
I’m doing it just to spite her
I’m trying to bury her alive
What are we doing for ourselves?
We can’t keep up the scratch and bite
This time we find the answers
This time we take it eye to eye

We take it eye to eye

Looking in my eyes … goodbye

That Devil In Your Eyes

THAT DEVIL IN YOUR EYES - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Forget your inhibitions
You’re completely insane
Sex is your nutrition
It’s the diet for your brain
You feed off of the power
In which your body’s made
Too many unbelievers
The price they had to pay

You can keep your evil lies
I will walk the line
Just spare me this for just this time
Can’t look you in the face to see it
That devil in your eyes

Feel that hot explosion
The touch you fornicate
Lilith is a bad girl
Heaven is too late
Your soul is there to sour
In this, you can’t describe
Too many instigators
Too many don’t survive

You can keep your evil lies
I will walk the line
Just spare me this for just this time
Can’t look you in the face to see it
That devil in your eyes

Found a sweet intention
You’re so out of control
Sex is your invention
It mandates all your goals
You deal in all the dark streets
To where you hide at night
Addicted to your heartbeat
The war is there to fight

You can keep your evil lies
I will walk the line
Just spare me this for just this time
Can’t look you in the face to see it
That devil in your eyes

By A Thread

BY A THREAD - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Just an after thought in the morning
Will your broken eyes ever heed the warning?
My heart could touch your soul if you would just let it
My head can’t let you go so girl just forget it

And I hang by a thread
Everyday when I let your memory back into me and
I wish I was dead
Then and only then would I forget you
Then and only then would I forget your name

Just an early train of new emotions
Arriving at the station and causing commotion
My heart is cinder so my head just forgets it
My soul can’t pretend but the pain seems to let it

And I hang by a thread
Everyday when I let your memory back into me and
I wish I was dead
Then and only then would I forget you
Then and only then would I forget your name

If I can’t breath the air then I can’t breath you in
This is my despair and you know this

If I can’t burn what doesn’t even exist
Then when will my power of resistance start kicking in?

You’re my dilemma
You are my shame
A scar on the wound of time

You are my enemy
You are to blame
A victim of your own Divine

Why didn’t you save me from all the things that you promised me
That you were going save me from?

And I hang by a thread
Everyday when I let your memory back into me and
I wish I was dead
Then and only then would I forget you
Then and only then would I forget your name
Then an only then would I ever let you
Then and only then would I ever let you back in

Yes I would let you back in

I would let you back in again

And I hang by a thread

West Coast State Of Mind

WEST COAST STATE OF MIND - Written by Carroll Bryant



A continental breakfast in a west coast state of mind
It feels like my troubles are a million miles behind
I can’t undo the changes yet my templates are clear
The salt air keeps shouting out loud enough to hear

This place keeps on feeling more and more like home
The mere thought of leaving makes me feel alone
So what is that saying?
What message does it send?
Who ever said that a vacation ever has to end?

And no, I just can’t delete it
Miss Beverly Hills has got me defeated

Roll on Ohio, roll on down the line
Roll on down the river
Roll on with father time
I found a new woman and her heart is mine
Roll on Ohio
I’m in a west coast state of mind

Like a Mormon on a mission for good old Brigham Young
I think I found a calling for the sand, surf and sun
My spirits are lifted and my broken heart bereaved
Man, I’m gonna miss it when it comes time to leave

The girls are amazing in everything they do
Life is but living with nothing else to lose
So what am I doing?
What makes it all so hard?
Who ever said that nirvana is bad for the heart?

And no, you know I don’t mean it
Miss Santa Monica has got me depleted

Roll on Ohio, roll on down the line
Roll on down the river
Roll on with father time
I found a new woman and her heart is mine
Roll on Ohio
I’m in a west coast state of mind

From Rodeo Drive to the Hollywood Hills
Nothing but sunshine in a deep state of thrills

This place keeps on feeling more and more like home
The mere thought of leaving makes me feel alone
So what is that saying?
What message does it send?
Who ever said that a vacation ever has to end?

And no, I just can’t delete it
Miss Beverly Hills has got me defeated

Roll on Ohio, roll on down the line
Roll on down the river
Roll on with father time
I found a new woman and her heart is mine
Roll on Ohio
I’m in a west coast state of mind

Roll on Ohio, roll on down the road
The path I’ve been walking
Is getting really old
I found a new woman and I can’t deny
Roll on Ohio
I’m in a west coast state of mind

I’m in a West coast state this time
A West coast state of shine

Remember (Her Song)

REMEMBER (HER SONG) - Written by Carroll Bryant 



When it rains
I can hear droplets falling down
Calling your name - again
Just the way I do when I’m not around you

Remember when we danced under the stars?
I was in your heart
And you were in my arms
And we spoke telepathically
Sharing all of our dreams
That’s the place where I long to be

When it snows
I can hear angels shivering
Shaking the cold - again
Just the way I do when I am not with you

Remember when we held hands together?
It was the summer
And you were my lover
And we touched metaphorically
Sharing our everything
That’s the place where I long to be

You’re a princess of love
I’m just a jester
This world is the kingdom
I might just be guessing here
But we - have good intentions
Love’s not an invention
It’s just a feeling I’m feeling - for you

You’re a princess of love
I’m just a jester
This world is the kingdom
I might just be guessing here
But we - live in some confusion
Love’s not an illusion
It’s just a feeling I’m feeling - for you

When it rains
I can hear droplets falling down
Calling your name - again
Just the way I do when I’m not around you

Remember when we danced under the stars?
I was in your heart
And you were in my arms
And we spoke telepathically
Sharing all of our dreams
That’s the place where I long to be

That’s the place where I’ll always be

Elephant In The Room

ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Elephants can fly in purgatory
Though I don’t know why
That’s just the way this nightmare goes

Sure enough you called my bluff
Now spiders crawl upside the junk
That you left behind and I can’t find my sanity

Jackals are watching me, my every move
Though I see a lazy sky
The dawn is looking blue

Sure to hell I smell the smell
You know me all too well
Like it would even matter that leaving me just leaves me flattered

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Danger is as careful as danger allows
Though purgatory darkens
With every twist and turn

Damn it all you found me
Standing in the corner
Where everything you ever loved is standing there beside me

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Running down a hallway that keeps warping at my feet
I know it isn’t real
I know that I am still asleep
Trying every doorknob that is locked inside itself
I know it isn’t real
It’s just a vision of my future

Damn it to hell when I can tell
That you know me all too well
Like it would even matter that leaving me just leaves me flattered

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Elephants can fly in hell
