Endless Rituals

Carved and Sutured

Like You


Why is it I feel different most everywhere I go
Always afraid what's underneath might bubble up and show
I can't be like you
I can't breathe like you
I need more than you do
Than you do...
Don't ask me what I'm laughing at, don't ask me why I smile
It could be something innocent or something rather vile
There's humor in most anything, depends how deep you look
I find life rather boring when I view it by the book
I can't be like you
I can't breathe like you
I need more than you do
Than you do...

Life


Slowly the light it creeps in and brings me to a new day
Then I rush off to the place where my life washes away
Watching them all everyday, how they seem so unconcerned
I wish I could be like them, but that's my problem I've learned
I just don't get it, I just don't care...
Go home but it never ends, everything has to be right
Just can't leave some things undone, oh well then no sleep tonight
Checking it once, check it twice, I've got to check it again
No matter how hard I try, can't bring this night to an end
I just don't get it, I just don't care...

Why


Why can't I...
Why can't I...
Why can't I see...through your eyes

Spiders


Little girl cries out to mother "There are spiders in my room,
please come before they bite me, bring a mop or bring a broom"
Her mother doesn't hear her, she remains quite unaware
The child must face the spiders, try and run them out of there
Now she's suffocating spiders
Suffocating spiders
She's always suffocating spiders
Suffocating spiders
That girl has gotten older, in beauty and in brains
Though the world is different, what she does remains the same
Spiders, they have changed now, less hair and six less legs
Their bite is just as deadly, so the girl remains afraid
That's why she's suffocating spiders
Suffocating spiders
She's always suffocating spiders
Suffocating spiders

I


The only time I'm not alone is when I'm by myself
All day long I feel as though my life is on a shelf
Forced to dance against my will while juggling my fears
I am just a puppet with too many puppeteers
Puppet...a Puppet...
Puppet...I'm just a Puppet...
Day in, Day out, they're all the same, seven deaths a week
Each day rolls by just like the last, no time to think or speak
Trying desperately to find the breath so I can say
Everything that you call life is standing in my way

Empty


Times like these...two halves don't make a whole
Times like these...I miss her most
Times like these, I realize, two halves can't fill a hole
Times like these, sitting in silence, I miss her most of all

Lifeless


I just don't get it...I just don't care...

Everybody


Why must you put me though these things, what did I do
Glaring as you go by, I sit and wonder why
Everybody, has different needs, you and me
Minds and bodies, not all the same, can't you see
Everybody, won't fit your mold, and that's why
Minds and bodies, you can't control
What would there be to gain, if we all dressed the same
Black and white fashion show, tell me I want to know
Everybody, has different needs, you and me
Minds and bodies, not all the same, can't you see
Everybody, won't fit your mold, and that's why
Minds and bodies, you can't control

What


What is it you want from me
What more do you need from me
What else can you take as you turn and walk away
What is it you want from me
What more do you need from me
What else can you take that you don't already have

Daydream


I can see the world I want to live, I can live that world inside my head
I hope I learn to reach my world, before this world makes me forget
I can feel the world I want to live, I can paint the picture in my head
Although it's always far away, with edges bleeding out to gray
But at the end of every day, I'm no closer, with more time lost
I suppose that sometimes, even though you have the means,
You can never reach the end...
