Machine Fish Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Feel the Rage (3:12)
Take a trip, step outside of this fishbowl life
Voice recalls, ceramic youth in pots of broken truth

I feel the rage, comin' off of the stage
I feel the rage, comin' off of the page
I feel the...

Make a wish, clear your mind, let the years rewind
Poets pain battles fame and becomes its slave

I feel the rage, comin' off of the stage
I feel the rage, comin' off of the page
I feel the...

Open mouth, open grave, nothing left to say
2. The Struggle (5:54)
Cover my eyes, too bright for night
Path that I run, too small for some
Take a step and try to walk, I fall
Plant my feet and try to stand
The struggle never ends

Chains made of flesh, shackles of death
Peace to my right, Spirit of life
Just a slave to something I can't stand
It's gonna kill me, kill the inner man
Like a pyre burning up and down
It's gonna burn this temple to the ground
3. Fear Not (5:03)
Time to leave the craft, with all my strength I open up the hatch
Parts unknown between the twilight and the danger zone

Fear Not - No fear
Feelin' no pain - Fearless
Will be my name - Gonna walk
And I'm not gonna be afraid
Fear Not

Braced for a fall, believing whether I can see it all
Fly like a swan, take a leap into the boundaries of beyond

Fear Not - No fear
Feelin' no pain - Fearless
Will be my name - Gonna walk
And I'm not gonna be afraid
Fear Not

Black as coal, the darkness that infringes on my soul
Isolate, ask myself if only death awaits

Fear Not - No fear
Feelin' no pain - Fearless
Will be my name - Gonna walk
And I'm not gonna be afraid
Fear Not
4. Stress (4:35)
No one calls unless I leave
No one's home, the voice repeats

Kind hands wrapped around my neck
Sharp teeth biting in my back
Cold eyes burning laser beams
Oh! God, relieve me of this STRESS

A list from A to Z, this is too much for me
Don't want this mess, I must confess
I hate this stress

The more I work, the less I make
The less I learn, the more you take

Small lips telling big huge lies
White sores growing in my mouth
Red blood pouring from my heart
Oh! God, relieve me of this STRESS

I'm not your property, come on and set me free
Don't want this mess, I must confess
I hate this stress
5. Psychotic Companion (7:32)
Please, come on in
Welcome to my neighborhood of psychic friends
Hey, here we go
I will tell you things that you already know

Goin' to Hawaii, so says Mr. Spivey
Cosmic operator standing by

Won't you be my friend, Psychotic Companion
Keep me on the line, spending every dime

Try not to laugh
But I foresee some danger in your psychopath
No mental blocks
But I will charge you every minute that we talk

Hooked into an I.V. right to Mr. Spivey
Cosmic operator standing by
6. In This Life (3:13)
What a good boy I've been, a humanitarian
Done what's right in my own eye
With just a little compromise

Every good boy does fine
Does his best for all mankind
Appearance of integrity
Keep him barking up that tree

In this life I've accumulated knowledge & reason
In this life I've put up a good fight but never won

Good boys always finish last
Just a relic of the past
Might as well just pack my bags
'Cause it's all just filthy rags

In this life I've realized who's in my reflection
7. Easy to Love (4:08)
Like the bristles through your hair
The memories flowing through the air
Now comes a time to reminisce
Excitement of the virgin kiss

You were so hard to find the words to a ryhme
Just in the nick of time, a vision, a sign
And you were so easy to love
You were a gift sent down from above

You ask me to produce a list
Of reasons why I can't resist
The pictures point toward the truth
The feelings paint the final clue

You were the one so fine, fixed in my mind
Put my thoughts in rewind, and there I would find
That you were so easy to love
Promise of hope sent back by a dove
And you were so easy to love
8. Red Sun (4:58)
I can't say just how it began
Drivin' across the western sand
Something I could not understand
Overcome by this Lentenland

Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel it wrap around my soul
Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel the future take control
...as I drive

Oh, the next move is mine
I knew this chance would come in time
Weaving its way into my mind
Where the mortal reaches divine

Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel it wrap around my soul
Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel the future take control
...as I drive

Hey man, you're gonna change the world
You're gonna change the world, you're gonna

Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel it wrap around my soul
Drive into a Red Sun
I can feel the future take control
...as I drive
9. Idle Minds (4:11)
You can call me dangerous, superstitious, passe', what you wish
You can take my freedom, education, pride, love & honor

Cuz I'm through with the war you're fightin'
Body and soul dividin'
Arrogance of enlightenment
With no fear of God almighty

Idle minds wait for signs out of line
You can keep your solutions, propaganda, justice, paranoia

Desire unable to satisfy you
Happiness will deny
With no fear of God almighty

Idle minds wait for signs out of line
Eye dull minds wait for signs end of the line
10. The Lens (5:24)
An angel enters in a skull in her hand
Casket for a purse hoping to reverse
Scars that life can leave hidden up her sleave
Performs a silent mass to purify the past

This blackened heart wears virgin white
Oppression lit by candlelight
But then you change before my eyes

I see your face as I am looking through the lens
No more disgrace as I am looking through the lens

An angel sits alone, awaiting kodachrome
Striking dark facade to pose for for other gods

Take off the mask that hides the fears
Those nightmares of abusive years
And then you change before my eyes

I see your face as I am looking through the lens
No more disgrace as I am looking through the lens
I see beyond the painted walls of your defense
I see your face as I am looking through the lens

An angel for a day, she turns to fly away
Removes the wedding gown, there'll be no hiding now
And then you'll change before my eyes
11. Pattin' Yourself on the Back (3:45)
OK they all say you're a winner now
Save face, win with grace
But you don't know how

So big your heads gonna crack
Someday your arms gonna snap
From pattin' yourself on the back

Big drag hate to brag but you always do
Been told that you're gold
And ya think it's true

Don't ya know I'm a winner now
Don't ya know I'm a winner now
You know I'll never be a loser
12. In a Lonely Room (4:45)
Safe inside my mother's womb
A lonely boy in a lonely room
Raindrops hit on window glass
Looking out as people pass

I remember the past and how much it can hurt
Soaking in the depression for all that it's worth
Never wanting to leave, never wanting to stay...

In a lonely room
Where the walls were a way to escape from the world
In a lonely room
I remember the pain that I felt from inside...of my room

Hears a song and breathes a sigh
Sits and eats the humble pie
Wallows in the circumstance
Companionship is a mirror glance

I remember the past and how it hasn't changed
Always searching for answers, the questions remain
Never wanting to leave, never wanting to stay...

In a lonely room
Where the walls were a way to escape from the world
In a lonely room
I remember the pain that I felt from inside...of my room
In my room, In my room

Sittin' in darkness
I hear a whisper
I feel a presence
I hear a voice

Livin' in the darkness
I have a shadow
I feel a spirit
I feel the ghost...
Never lettin' me go
Never lettin' me go
Never lettin' me go

I remember the past and how much it can hurt
Soaking in the depression for all that it's worth
Never wanting to leave, never wanting to stay...

In a lonely room
Where the walls were a way to escape from the world
In a lonely room
I remember the pain that I felt from inside...of my room
13. 9th of June (5:23)
What to expect? I do not know
Will it be the end? Or just a crushing blow?
Should I heed the word on the 9th of June?
Will the Lord come back? Will it be a day of doom?

Do you believe in what I feel? Do you believe?
Do you believe in something real? Do you believe?

Will I fly away into the void?
Will the world destruct? Or am I paranoid?
The words of man will lead astray
False prophecies, but no man knows the day

Do you believe in what I feel? Do you believe?
Do you believe in something real? Do you believe?

We did not shake, we did not sink
Puts me on edge, makes me think

Do you believe in what I feel? Do you believe?
Do you believe in something real? Do you believe?

Do you believe in what I feel? Do you believe?
Do you believe in something real? Do you believe?

Do you believe in what I feel? Do you believe?
Do you believe in something real? Do you believe?
14. Arrow (6:57)
Somebody shot me with their arrow
Somebody thinks that I can't see
But I've been wise to their manipulation
So I'll just plant my feet and never leave

But I can't sleep...

Somebody pierced me with their dagger
Somebody wants to see me bleed
Can't they see the things that I've done for them
In the interest of humanity

But I can't sleep...

Somebody shot me with their arrow
Somebody thinks that I can't see
But I've been wise to their manipulation
So I'll just plant my feet and never leave

Don't send me away, I don't want to go away

Somebody caught me with my guard down
I haven't had enough to eat
If I could have a chance to get my strength back
I would show the world the best of me

But I can't sleep...

Somebody shot me with their arrow
Somebody thinks that I can't see
But I've been wise to their manipulation
So I'll just plant my feet and never leave

Don't send me away, I don't want to go away

Somebody shot me with their arrow
Somebody thinks that I can't see
But I can see, yes I can see
