Washed in the blood of the lamb. Hold my hand.

You have your finger on the pulse of our lives, While we're standing next to you in line. You like to think that we have arrived, but we have much, much, much more time. The only way that you'll let us move on thru our day, Is the only way that we can get out alive. I'm not just a fan, I'm the other half of you. I'm not just a fan, I complete you, you know that it's true. Watch you walk down the road, Follow you to your house, I think you'll be waiting inside, I think I'll be waiting inside. Just like a dream, This is just like a dream. Don't you agree now? You follow my lead now. I'll let you eat now, But don't try to breathe now. I'm not just a fan, I'm the other half of you. I'm not just a fan, I complete you, you know that it's true.

Insomniator 02:20
You are my animal (I can't sleep) You are my animal (I can't sleep) You are my animal (May you be) There's no turning back from here.

Come a little bit closer, I've got something you should hear. Look to the sky, Now walk the steps, Unto perfection, Unto the beginning of the end. You are the wind and the rain, You are the one who keeps me sane, You are the breeze that blows thru me. You are the holy ghost, You are better than most, You are the secret I keep closely. Look to the sky, Now walk the steps, Unto perfection, Unto the new beginning. Sturm and Drang and not much compasssion, You said "You forgive me" after a fashion, You are the only one, Yes, you are the only one. Crucifixes and crosses and demons, You aren't the only one who can see them, but we are not leaving you, no we are not leaving you. Look to the sky, Now walk the steps, Unto perfection, Unto the new beginning, The beginning of the end.

Waiting in the back of the theatre, Where she told me she'd be. She said we'd leave for Rome tonite. It'd just be her and me. So I'm waiting for her. Waiting in the back of the theatre, Where she told me she'd be. Just the ghosts of past performances to keep me company. So I'm waiting for her, but I don't think she's coming. Not tonite.

Everybody gets to ride the pony this time.

You know I'm in a foot race with Jesus. You know there's a chance he might win. There's a T-Rex in 3rd place. Robocop is the referee. This could never happen. But anything is possible, Or so they say. The long arm of the law.

This is not your father's sword, This is not his gun. Go back from whence you came, please.

You've got to welcome them with open arms. They control everything. You've got to extend your hand, you don't have. You've got to open your mouth for them. You must wave your hands. Welcome them with open arms. Open Arms. You've got to welcome them.

Falling Up 01:30

You gave me your greatest gift. I said thank you. Won't even hold my hand. Behind the house you gave your greatest gift. In the grass, you gave it to me. Behind the house you gave it to me.
20.
At the bottom of the river where you lay. At the bottom of a well, I hope you'll stay. From the top of the mountain, head in the clouds. I can hear you shouting, Shouting so loud. This city is like a dragon, Going to eat us up. You are the hero trying to save us all. Standing on the hilltop, sword in your hand. Blood on your face, your claws are sharp. We run from you, but we aren't fast enough. This city is such a monster, Going to chase you down the road. This city is a hungry machine. Don't stop feeding it.
21.
Start your engines, Stop your cringing, Since you're on the fringe, Don't think about revenge Slow your patrol, Before you fall in a hole, Everybody is on a roll, Even if they're not, they're in control. Yes I built this house No I'm not a mouse. If you think you can find a louse just try it. Last week we went to the show. We wondered where you were and why didn't you go Tearing down is much easier than building As long as you carry that sword you've been wielding.
22.
You're standing on the edge of a cliff. You forgot to wear your wings today. Gun in your hand. There's no one there. Thinking very hard about what to do. There's no going back. You're standing next to the abyss. You don't have a torch in your hand. Everyone has forgotten. You don't know this land.

Emergency 03:15
I've got this gun cocked, locked, and ready to fire. You better duck. Don't stand there, you're a liar. I've got this gun cocked, locked, and ready to fire. Don't stand there, I might miss, and you are a liar.
27.
I just want to see you smile. Can you get a little closer to me? I just want to hold your hand. Can you get a little closer to me?
28.
Shorty is sweety, She don't know how to live. Shorty is a sweety, She don't know what she give. I barely know her name. Shorty is a sweety, when the lights go out. Shorty is a sweety, She gotta shout. Hop in the car. Shorty, I don't think I'll ever forget you. Not as long as I live. Shorty, I don't think I can get you out of my head.

30.
(Unintelligible singing) Don't you want to wait your turn? It's not my turn yet. Is it yours?
31.
I don't think I can tell a lie. I don't think I can lie. Can you tell I'm lying to you? All these lies sound the same.
32.
Now No. 1 02:43

34.
We walk off a cliff, but your money's no good. I'm not gonna listen just cause you thought I should. There's the door why don't you leave. There's no more dark no more seed. We tested the exits and found one way out. We saw that the only fire was gone. Heard you were gone, but not for good. Thought you were listening but don't know why you would.
35.
You will go in if it is high. Do you want to make a bet?
36.
The gates are open, Won't you come back?
37.
38.
We are crawling on the ground, There are sounds we can't hear. We are trying to catch up to a future we hold so dear. We have nothing to overcome. We are dancing in the dirt.
39.
Don't believe everything that you hear, Don't believe everything that you say, Don't believe everything that you hear, You gotta question reality. Life is a moving picture, Don't be late for the show. Don't believe everything that you hear, These fools are out to get you. Don't believe everything you can't touch or feel, Cause you can't touch or feel, Don't touch or...

Now, We Wait 02:47
Now, we wait. How long do you have?
44.
Don't push our heads, cause we're close to the edge. Don't push us back, cause we're trying to carry on.

Please wait a minute, I'm almost done. Just give me a chance, then you'll have one. I don't know why you can't wait at all. Just wait. Waiting for the fall.

This infernal machine takes me where I want to go. Riding along with the girls and the boys, With their retro dogs and their retro toys. Hurry up and get there. A man sits next to me and his machine arm is malfunctioning. He tries to tell me about it thru my audio stream. I tell him I don't speak cyborg, please go away. The party girls and the party boys all hyped up on their super juices, Their neon outfits offend me so I turn on filters to get it away. At last I'm at my stop. I can't climb to the top of this pile of rats, pile of garbage in this city that we live.

You and I only have one day left. We just have tonight. You are the one, It's oh so true, You hold my heart, When I'm next to you. I don't know if I can say goodbye. You in your overcoat, Click of heels on the street, As we walk hand in hand into the light. You leap commitments in a single bound, Don't let your feet touch the ground Our future's nearly out of sight. Where do we go from here? Where do we go? REFRAIN You thought the challenge would be the future, Turned out all the obstacles were in the past. I was the first, but I know you won't be last. You'll never be the last.

Transistor, No Impedance. Now we dance in the ashes. Correct this voltage. Correct this life. Straighten this arrow. Dull this knife. Shogun, powerful. Armored Fool. Waiting army. Waiting for nothing. Correct this voltage. Correct this life. Straighten this arrow. Dull this knife.
58.
You said you don't care. You said you'd let the rivers of blood flow down the street. You said you won't look for, You said you won't divide, All you want to do is multiply. You're a hypocrite. When the sky opens up you know the end is nigh, And you don't have much time left, So hold my hand, We're in it together. When the creatures crawl out of the pit You got nothing to hold on to. Living a Lie. When the Sky goes black and the end is near You know I've been waiting for you. Salvation is at hand.
59.
60.
You said you're loaded for bare, You said you'd take us anywhere, Got on my helmet and my boots, so let's go It's not like you lied again, let's just be honest, are we even friends? I want to take it all back, but I can't take it, no I can't take it. When the sun shines in the spring, we'll have a moment of clarity and peace. Your eyes will lighten and grow eager again, and we'll once more call each other friend.
61.
62.
We're all so impressed, you just won't give up, take a breath, shut the hell up we're all so impressed, you just won't look up, just take a breath, shut the hell up. Better get back to your spaceship, better get back before it takes off, I don't know what you are. Of all the unlikely things that could happen to us, this must be the strangest, this must be the last. and even though we can't believe what we just saw or heard. You and I will come to believe, you will change the world.
63.
Listen Up 03:22
Listen up to what I tell you. I can't believe I have to spell it out. What do you want? A picture? Take this. Listen up, you better listen up. How long will it take for you to understand? I can't take much longer for you to understand I only have so much patience. I only have so much time. Listen up. You better listen up.
64.
65.
It's not like you to forget what you were saying. It's not like you to forget what's next. Where are you now? Come back to us. Where are you now? Come back to us.
66.

Now how we gonna pass the time? When you have no arms and legs, how are we gonna pass the time? Climb the ladder, every rung. Don't you stop, we'll come undone.

Left berlin 2 hours ago. Stopped by in London, had to stop at Heathrow, went to Texas today. In seattle they always go my way. All around the world, we go all around the world. Back in Austin had to keep it weird, in Virginia they have no fear, up in Berlin I do a little dance, In Sao Paolo they never give me a chance.
72.
We left the house about an hour ago, tell me when we will get there. i'm not your plaything, i'm not your toy, i have free will, Let me, never. Where do we go? Where do you go? I'm not your pet, I'm not your slave. Where do we go from here?
73.
Come on Down 04:39
We dig in the ground, Where all the bodies are found. When you are around, You will come on down.

It's just another day, Don't try to get away, You and I we have to stay, It's just another day. You should try to escape, there's only one way.
78.
79.
KNOCK, KNOCK. WHO'S THERE? I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU. KNOCK ONCE, KNOCK TWICE. THREE TIMES, I'LL ANSWER YOU. KNOCK, KNOCK WHO'S THERE? I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU. THREE TIMES AT THE DOOR.
80.
I saw you dancing to Bow Wow Wow. You looked so good on the dance floor. I tried to shuffle over and get your number, but someone stepped on my shoes and I had to fight. It's just the beginning of the night, No need to get rude or try to fight, There'll be lots of chances to meet a girl, Lots of chances to make sure you don't go home alone. Learned how to moonwalk over the weekend, Got my Thriller record and then took a swim, The first night I listened to it ten times. The second night I listened to it 15 times. It's just the beginning of the year, Just try to be cool and try to stay clear, There'll be lots of chances to meet a girl, Lots of chances to make sure you don't go home alone. It's just the beginning of your life, Just try to be cool don't carry a knife, There'll be lots of chances to meet a girl, Lots of chances to make sure you don't go home alone. It's just the beginning of your life, Don't carry a gun, just carry a knife. No need to be cool, just try to fight, No chance that you will go home alone.

Intermission 02:24
82.
Where you end, I begin. Where you stop, I pick up. You are a part of me. You stay high, I'll be low. You are fast, but I'm right behind you. You are a part of me. We are an infinite loop. We are an infinite time, Sharing this reality that we've created. We have forever and a day, just you and me, Always. Where you end, I begin. Where you stop, I pick up. You are a part of me.
83.
Some animals: are too fast. are too slow. Never thought we could get past, I can't keep up with your flow.
84.
85.
It's not your name, It's not your number, It's not the way you comb your hair, It's that you're everywhere. It's the way you look at me, It's the way you move so free, I will follow you anywhere. Anywhere.
86.
Better put out that match before you catch aflame. I'm burning up.
87.
Hand in glove, Hand in hand, You my love, Across the land, Where is it? Where do we go? Where is it? I have to know. This holy vow is ours to keep, keep together. This holy vow, is ours to keep, just you and me.
88.
89.
It's cold and wet and dark outside, And if you only knew. It's hard and fast and take awhile. And if you only knew. We took a left when we should have stopped and now, now we're lost. It's gray and white and I'm blue today, because you now know. It's shallow of me to be so deep, but I know you know. REFRAIN It's just a dream, but it's so real. It's just a thought, but it can knock down walls. REFRAIN 2X
90.
Yes, you are the leader, Yes, you are the man, We walk in time behind you, We do what we can. Yes, you are my leader, Oh yes, you are the man, I do whatever you tell me to, I will die where I stand.
91.
This roller coaster is going off the tracks.
92.
Rain Today 03:00
It's gonna rain today, And I'll shoot you like an arrow into the sun when it rains. you have the key, you won't bother me, It's gonna rain today, they say. There's no relief at all, You will have to climb this wall. Only way to get back to you. It's gonna rain today, and you thought you had all the answers. It's gonna rain today, they say. I wanna share your dreams, take a piece of your reality, It's gonna rain today, they say. REFRAIN 2x
93.
Monday is my analog day, Tuesday is my analog day, Thursday is my analog day, Friday is my analog day. You've got to start the machine up.
94.
Got chased into a pit. Then I fell in, down a hole. Then the monsters they followed me in. There's no escape. The darkest night into the brightest light, Hounded by demons, Unable to sleep, I can't even breathe, They won't let me die. The darkest night into the brightest light, I will protect thee.
95.
96.
The Monster lurking under the bed is you. The Monster lurking behind the door is you.

about

This album is the second in my series of "One a Day" albums. The idea is that a new piece of music is created and released every day. Each of these was posted on Soundcloud for a free download initially. This project began on December 21, 2012. There is currently no end date.

Why not 100 tracks you ask? Some tracks had uncleared samples, so I've opted to leave those out and made them available for free download on Soundcloud.

Please listen and enjoy.
