Bach echoes on subway walls Violin virtuoso completely ignored No one stops to hear him play Spoon fed muzak saps the soul Only listen to what they are told Manufactured pap the mindless way The world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down This world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down Jobs are lost down on their luck Hedge fund winner makes his buck Counting the green amassing power Lust, avarice and wanton greed Billions, more than they need The minority safe in their glass towers The world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down This world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down Politicians tongues dripping honey Hands grabbing vested interest money Whist poverty claims another life They stand tall wrapped in the flag Crying crocodile tears over body bags Sent on illegal wars the government lies Child soldier stands holds the gun Mines and bombs but food for none Innocence lost as paradise burns Another famine in far off land Fast food people don’t understand Man’s inhumanity to man The world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down This world has a bleeding soul And it’s all going down The world has a bleeding soul This world has a bleeding soul Our world has a bleeding soul Band aid for a bleeding soul?

Standing here I see the world laid out below in ethereal glow I touch the moon and sun and sea one small step and I’ll be free I can see both the day and night all of creation is in my sight One last deep breathe I need to take the tension here I begin to shake Night into day I’m falling away One small step And I’m falling away Night into day I’m falling away One small step And I’m falling away I’m falling away Free falling down towards the ground break through sound I’m spinning around Through swirling cloud my body falls towards the earth I’m coming home Night into day I’m falling away One small step And I’m falling away Night into day I’m falling away One small step And I’m falling away I’m falling away

The early hours the black dog slinks into consciousness denying sleep Pervading greyness stuporforic fuge impossible rationale eyes weep Disassociation from the world mental castration a lithium state Zombie shuffle unable to wake Death in life the chemical fate Another Blue Monday the weight of the world upon your shoulders feeling through pain Feeling such guilt at your part in the plan you inwardly rage repeat the day again A worthless existence the smothering embrace rational dead end your soul must break Irritation fed by ignorant words hollow platitudes too much to take Another Blue Monday and your heart will break neurological tiredness too much to take Don’t know the answer to escape the pain you take the pills keeping you restrained Trapped inside this cerebral prison a silent scream inside your mind You inwardly rage at the despair rattle mental chains that bind Twisted thoughts hold you down confined in this mental cell Confusion reigns inside your head unable to speak who could you tell? Sinking in a black pool of despair in the safety this self built cell As the waters now close over is there no one here to help? Someone to hold you and understand heal the pain felt inside Help exorcise the demons within a hand to hold and be a guide Bleeding out your self is fading feeling sanity fade away Desperately reaching for some kind of help to get through another Blue Monday

Where were you who told me to fly? Reality’s triple-A blew me out of the sky Raise me up then pull me down No place for dreams I hit the ground Where were you who said touch the stars? Cut down to size before I reached that far All my dreams shot in the head A thousand futures just left for dead Where were you? Where were you? Where were you? Where were you? Where were you as I stand alone? Fight my own war damned to survive I wish you’d never painted the sun Showed me a hope that’s now all gone Where were you? Where were you? (when I needed you) Where were you? Where were you? (when I needed you)

And so we fall down into the ground so cold in here And run away and hide till the break of day And run away and hide till the break of day And so we fall down fall through the ground so free out here And run away and hide till the break of day And run away and hide till the break of day

Winter sunrise bathes the mist white blanket on fields that frost has kissed Raindrops fall in a spring shower translucent angels dancing on a flower Seasons come and seasons go here I stand all alone Seasons come and seasons go forgotten here heart of stone Butterfly’s flight on a summer breeze gossamer touch is all we need The hairline patterns on an autumn leaf amber and gold beauty so brief Seasons come and seasons go here I stand all alone Seasons come and seasons go forgotten here heart of stone On a cold November morn a moments silence from those who are born Red flowers laid at my feet remembrance of sacrifice complete Seasons come and seasons go, for one short moment I'm not alone...

Fingers touch the frosted glass drawing patterns in the mist Coldness numbing finger tips mirrored lives that co-exist Hollow eyes their mocking stare veil within their hidden deceit What do they know? I cannot say knowledge is so incomplete The Man in the Mirror looks back at me The Man in the Mirror that’s all I see A mirrored image my reflected soul The Man in the Mirror who’s in control? Bloodied shards reflection smashed what the hell do they signify? Have I escaped the reflected curse? a thousand faces a mirrored lie The Man in the Mirror looks back at me The Man in the Mirror that’s all I see A mirrored image my reflected soul The Man in the Mirror who’s in control? Tears leak from bloodshot eyes exhaustion lines no time to rest Need to regain control again before insanity is manifest Replicating the gaze again wake to expose veracity Reverse imitation mocking me questioning my mental capacity The Man in the Mirror looks back at me The Man in the Mirror is the monster in me? A mirrored image my reflected soul The Man in the Mirror am I losing control?

Twenty four miles to planet Earth do I do this to prove my worth? Ten minutes is all it takes praying Lord please no mistakes Goodbye...
