A Game of Chess - 2017

There used to be a time when you said Jump and I asked how high

But now you have turned 

Into some other guy

I'm eternally thankful for

What you've done for me 

But I still need to breath 

And your atmosphere is suffocating 

Now all I want to do is scream

The control you sought 

To become supreme 

Everything you did

All your little schemes 

A game of chess

And a fruitless dream 

It's not hard to apologize 

All you have to do is swallow your pride

Humble yourself it won't hurt at all

Get down on your knees 

And give God a call

And I think you thought you already did 

Honestly you barely opened the lid

To Whitehall Manor you run and hide

Gave up real quick 

And told them you tried 

Now all I want to do is scream The control you sought  To become supreme  everything you did All your little schemes  A game of chess And a fruitless dream 

Catharsis will come 

And you taught me how

Just know that you don't deserve a bow 

The way you acted spoke worlds to me 

With this last song for you

My anger set free

A few more words just to finalize 

Thank you truly for opening my eyes

Remember this beat and put it to rest

Every finger you pointed in my chest

Now all I do is dream

Light and easy Like the seraphim  Everything I do Gaining more esteem A game of chess And a common theme  Now all I do is sing

Light and easy Like the seraphim  everything I do Gaining forward steam A game of chess And a fruitful dream 


Path To Rock Bottom

Path to Rock Bottom - 2017

The path to rock bottom 

Isn't paved at all, 

its riddled with things you don't need 

That cut deeply as you fall 

Masks and lies from those you trust 

And fruitless pursuits of old 

The path to rock bottom  

Is bitter lonely cold  


But on the road of spiral fate 

Beyond the endless hole 

The truth is always waiting 

For you to grab ahold   


The path to rock bottom Isn't meant for all 

Designed for those who need it most 

To help breakdown the walls 

Remnants of forgotten selves 

Lay buried in the debris  

The path to rock bottom 

Is the path to set them free  


And on the road of spiral fate 

Beyond the endless hole 

The truth is always waiting 

For you to grab ahold   


The truth is we never choose the path But the outcome is the same 

We hit our own rock bottoms  

And look for someone else to blame  

But love is there to lift us up 

If we have eyes to see 

That we were carried down the path 

To the rock, by the three


And on the road of spiral fate 

Beyond the endless hole 

The truth is always waiting 

For you to grab ahold 

Don't Know Where I'm Going

Don't Know Where I'm Going -2017

Well I don't know where I'm going 

But I sure know where I've been

I've been around the world my friends 

And drenched my soul in sin

I needed cleansing so to the lord I cried

Now I don't know where I'm going 

But I sure know why


Break the chains that bind us 

Move the mountains that we see

Part the waters and set us free

From this captive misery 

Only love can turn enemies to friends 

And in the end it brings us 

All back home again 


Now it's been a long time coming

But someday soon we'll see

An angel army rising up 

God riding down on Calvary 

To lead the battle for final victory

Now some don't know where their going

But I know where I'll be

Now some don't know where their going

But I know where I'll be
