welcome to my life
full of glitz and glamour
shit and clamor

stipper poles and alcoholic binges
dark holes and dirty syringes

happiness then suicide
smiles and selfish pride


i get so high
and fall so low
i get so happy
and then i just dont know
what am i doing here in this god forsaken place

the guitar helps me get through
the words help me make sense of it all
melody flows through me
the butterflys churn endlessley in my stomach

waiting for the crowd to assemble
waiting for the silence to rumble
waiting for the stage to go dark
waiting for the spotlight and the spark

and then i sing
o
i sing
to everyone and to no one

and then all my glorious, decadent shit for a life somehow shines
when those empty sea of eyes meet mine
and i sing a song
and i sing a song

Justin Dunning is the singer and guitarist for Covergeist.

i am stuck on this keyboard
tied to this screen
my fingertips my eyes

i hope you are not
i hope you are reading this on the finest egyptian papyrus

written in ink from your umbiblical chord
thats right, biblical


grand design
maybe...
I dont know

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
we are completely intertwined with the heavens

and it is there i will stay
my cacophony of letters
your eyes now move towards the heavens
you connect the dots
and the rest of our words
your words are our words
written in the stars
the stars the stars our stars
get away from the city
the stars the stars our stars

wake up.
youve been dreaming so long
you write the most beautiful songs
you have the most beautiful face
you have the most beautiful voice
you have the most beautiful face

i cant follow you
you go ahead
i will drown
in the oceans of sound
i am lost
and you are found

kill me
fuckin kill me
i cant sleep
my mind has been racing all nite long


i just time traveld
look at me
im a creature in formation
god bless me
god bless you

make us strong
make our poems long

give me something to say
give me the sky to crack

my heart is pure
my soul is clean

i am traveling through time
i am traveling through time
there it is again
on the tip of my tongue
under my thumb
i never found what i was looking for
i had it all along
