01. Psychosphere

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Break the cycle
Shake the cage of fear
Break the cycle
In the psychosphere

Cold
You've got to be cold
Cold
You've got to be cold
Somehow you've got to be told

Close the circle
No protection here
Close the circle
In the psychosphere

Laughter echoes through the silence
Cold compassion
Subtle violence

Cold
You've got to be cold
Cold
You've got to be cold
Somehow you've got to be told

Break the cycle
Fade and disappear
Break the cycle
In the psychosphere...


02. Goodbye City Life

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
The sights of the city are blinding me
With everything I can see
Street signs and telephone lines
Traffic lights

The crowds on the sidewalk rush by me
While they go where they have to be
And the feeling is so uptight
None of it seems right

Good bye city life
Good bye city life
Good bye city life

''Look at you
Where you going to
Do you find that piece of mind that you're trying to
Deep inside of you
So you thought that you're feeling too cold
Down, feeling down with your face to the ground
You save for tomorrow, but today
You throw it away, throw it away
Start to think nothing you hold to is real
Save for tomorrow, but today
You throw it away, throw it away
Hammer the tower to the floor
Wait for the men to come knock at your door
Come to tell you to stand up and to fight for the cause''

It's just part of the whole design
They're trying to break your mind
Good bye city life
Good bye city life
From the way that our lives begin
They're just trying to keep you in
Good bye city life

Good by city life

Can we turn out the light
Can we please turn out the light
Let's turn out the light

Tow the world turns around on you
Turning round
Turning round
The machine is slowing down on you
Slowing down
Slowing down


03. Here Come The Pigs

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
A loaded gun beneath my tongue
A halo on my head
The devil on my shoulder
An angel on my bed
Hear the sirens howling
How the engines roar
Heaven's on the television
Hell's outside the door
Let's rock

Feeling all the spiders crawl
Underneath my skin
Sewing shut the razor cut
From where I let them in
Digging all their teeth and claws
Deep into my veins
All the while I sit and smile
Trying to dig the pain
Let's rock

Here come the pigs into the slaughter
Here come the pigs into the slaughter

Feels like the walls are closing in
Over my head and still sinking
Feels like the walls are closing in
Over my head and still sinking

My shadow reaching for my throat
To take away my breath
Friends have come to lead me from
My cradle to my death
One hand held above a candle
Just to feel it burn
While the other wrote my suicide note
To whom it may concern
Let's rock...


04. Lost In You

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
A heart is so easy to break
The way that it feels can be so hard to take
When the love in your life
Is like turning a knife in yourself

A promise is easy to make
A promise believed can be quite a mistake
When you feel so deceived
That you can't believe anyone else

Did you ever care for some one
Like sticking your mouth to the end of a gun
Did you ever care for some one
Loosing yourself for the love of another one

If you really care for me
If you're really there for me
Well kiss me goodnight and then
Bring all this pain to an end
I'm so lost in you

Nothing is easy they say
All you've recieved can be taken away
And the more you believe in
The more you're deceiving yourself

Words can be so hard to say
Love is so easily frightened away
When you try hard to fly on the wings made of somebody else

Did you ever care for some one
Like sticking your mouth to the end of a gun
Did you ever care for some one
Loosing yourself for the love of another one

I'm so lost in you
I'm so lost in you
So lost in your eyes
I'm so lost in you
I'm so lost in you
So lost in your smile
I'm so lost in you
Can't breathe without you
I'm so lost in you
So lost in you
So lost in you

Did you ever care for some one
Like sticking your mouth to the end of a gun
Did you ever care for some one
Loosing yourself for the love of another one

If you really care for me
If you're really there for me
Well kiss me goodnight
And then put out the light in my head
If you're really there for me
Just say a prayer for me
Well kiss me goodnight
And just leave me right here for dead
I'm so lost in you...


05. A Stairway To Nowhere

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
I am your conscience
I hide your secrets here
I am your feelings
I am the voice you hear
A stairway to nowhere
Ascend to the atmosphere
The key to the great beyond
The door to your darkest fear
Look out

I am the spirit
I am the universal mind
I am the journey
The answer that you hope to find
I am immortal
I am the ancient dream
And I'm neither the dark or light
Rather the shades between
I am your vision
I am your will to live
And I'm your religion
I am your joy to give

Would you like to fly?
Would you like to fly?
Would you like to fly?

If you'd like to find the universal mind
You'll find it has always been with you

I am the passage
I've opened the porthole through the viod
I bring the message to you
The ships of salvation are deployed
The final dimension
The light of a guiding star
The only intention
To show you exactly who you are

Would you like to fly?
Would you like to fly?
Would you like to fly?

If you'd like to climb
The stairway to the world divine
You only have to see it through
You'll find that the stairway leads to you...


06. The Gossamer Strand

Music by Devon Graves
[Instrumental]


07. Any Sign At All

Music & lyrics by Deadsoul Tribe
Everybody's looking for a sign
All their lives they search far and wide
Everyone is trying to find
Something they can't define
Something waiting quietly inside
Keep on trying

Waiting for a sign
Waiting for a sign
Waiting for a sign
Waiting
Waiting

Everybody wants to heal their pain
Everybody wants to end this fear
But they keep on waiting while they
Look up to the empty sky
Far away for something that's so near
Keep on waiting

Waiting for a sign
Waiting for a sign
Waiting for a sign
Waiting
Waiting

Everyone is waiting
All the dreamers keep on dreaming
For a sign
Any sign at all
All you dreamers keep on dreaming
For any sign at all
Any sign at all
Any sign at all
Any sign at all

I don't want to live this life again
All this pain and strife
This suffering
And I refuse to loose my mind
Drowning in this sea of time
Waiting for the next one to begin
All you dreamers keep on dreaming

Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?
Don't you see the sign?


08. Fear

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Now we're staring at the water
Through a window from the sky
As the hands of the clock
Count away the day
Sun light softly glows
Do you know that I fear this ride?
Even though that is why I'm still alive
Do you know?

Every time I say good bye
I feel so all alone
But I know
I'll be coming home

I'm taking a ride on a carousel
I've tossed a coin in a wishing well
I'm taking a ride on a carousel
And it keeps on turning

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Now we're staring at the mountains
Through a window on the highway
Like the picture in a hotel
Ever changing
Still somehow much the same
Do you know that I fear this ride?
I know that it's why I'm still alive

I'm taking a ride on a carousel
I've tossed a coin in a wishing well
I'm taking a ride on a carousel
And it keeps on turning...


09. Further Down

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Symptom of my vision
Shadow in my head
Ghost of my religion
Scars from where I bled
Further down and further down the spiral as we fall
Further down and further down the spiral
One and all

How can our decisions
Lead to our disgrace
Cause such great collisions
Cause our bitter fate
Tell me when
We'll rise again
From our eternal fall
Further down and further down the spiral
One and all

And this life is slowly melting
Like a candle burning

Like the architect
Who built himself behind a wall
Further down and further down the spiral
One and all...


10. A Lullaby For The Devil

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Close your eyes and try to sleep
You've been awake too long
Close your eyes and try to sleep
Let the day drift by
You've been awake for way too long

Forget about today
Let it drift away
Let your logic go
Let the feeling grow

Let go of all your hate
Let it dissipate
Find the love within
Let the dream begin

Do not hesitate
Take the great escape
Finally silence the pain and the violence today
Choose another fate
That which you create
Never again
Never again will you hold your hand over this place

Dream this night away till morn
Sleeping like a baby born
Test your mind and let your sorrow
Fade into the night

When you reawake
In all that you forsake
The bitter seasons end
Ready to ascend
In the morning light
Through a second sight
Learning to forgive
Finally learn to live...


11. My Grave

Music & lyrics by Psychotic Waltz
they're cracking the cross where they hammer the nail
pennies they laid on the windows that failed
not really gone, but I'm so far away
all of your prayers cried at once all too late
once you fall down, end the round
end the round

shades of my dark hour light where I lay
someone I don't know is passing my way
don't want to go, but I can't really stay
now I wait for this no one to take me away

given to the ground
end the round
tears are falling down
given to the ground
end the round

drums of the death marchers
drone through the day
the funeral flowers macabre disarray
fall to the tears and the dirt where they lay
now they've all come at once
and they've all come too late
given to the ground
end the round, end the round
end the round, end the round
end the round, end the round now
end the round, end the round
end the round


12. I Remember

Music & lyrics by Buddy Lackey
I remember a story of great battles won
and the tale of our heroes who died by the gun
while the rest looked and smiled at the freedom they've won
but the weight of the chain slows the run

I remember a song about flags standing high
as the red blazing rockets turned dark a blue sky
I remember the reason the weak shared good-byes if they could

I remember a sight at the dreams that we had
and the injustice they've suffered had driven them mad
I remember when we had the right to be sad all the time

I remember the war of the great days of old
and the battle hymns they sung while they died in the cold
I remember the good men they bought and they sold for a dime

let's take a look now what we've changed
after all we're still so much the same
after all this time
can't we make up our minds
must we all play the losing game

let's take a look now what we've changed
after all we're still so much the same
after all this time
can't we make up our minds
guess we'll all play the losing game


13. Some Sane Advice

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Hey man where you going to?
Mind if I'm heading with you?
I'd say but it isn't clear
Only that it could be far from here
So walk with me

Hey man, while we're passing through
Mind if I confided in you?
Can't stand the grappling hands
Clawing away at everything they can
Holding on to a ludicrous plan
A day in the life of a modern man
And where do we go from here

Sane advise is all I'm hoping to find
Sane advise is all that I'm hoping to find

Hey man, in the civil life
Everybody's scared
And hanging on to broken promises
The whole damn thing is coming unwound
Isn't it disillusioning
Every day the same old thing
And only closer to the bitter end
Searching for something to never be found

Am I mistaken
On the path I have taken
Am I forsaken
Will the world re-awaken
Old man illusion
Pardon my intrusion
This mad confusion here
I don't understand
Can you make it clear

Hey man, is it over then
Think that I'm headed back again


14. Under The Weight Of My Stone

Music & lyrics by Devon Graves
Before you know
Tomorrow s a memory gone by
And on the floor
Lies a note you never read
And you wait another day

Life has given
Nothing I can say
That it cannot take away

Before you know
All the cracks in the walls have grown
And when you go
Will you leave just a photograph
With a phony faded smile

Life has given
Nothing I can say
That it cannot take away

When I look all around
I feel like breaking down
Under the weight of my stone
