An Earth Dweller's Return
(Instrumental) Here & Now
Here we stand, as time keeps turning, near and far, the fires are burning Victory, the endless passion, for a cause, we will take an action I'm not a savior, I'm not a king, there's only the voice in your head But I feel your anger, I speak your peace, freedom time is here So are you ready for the here and now Sacrifice, the soul keeps baring, bring new life to a world worth sparing I'm not a prophet, I'm not a prince, the ego dies with the flesh You are the garden, I am the seed, harvest time is here But tell me are you ready for the here and now Courage, sacrifice, victory, freedom (Solo) One for all, time is fleeting, hear the call, our world is bleeding There are no saviors, there are no kings, the power lies in your hands So, you be the fire, the light without heat, precious time is here So tell me are you ready for the here and now, so tell me are you ready Are you ready for the here and now, so tell me are you ready Are you ready for the here and now, so tell me are you ready In My Dreams With You
I'm watchin' you, I'm wantin' you, but you turn away I'd crawl through broken glass to you, but it wouldn't pay You take me for a fool, but if you only knew What I do in my dreams with you You're so cold and critical, and baby that's too bad So my reality will have to come to me in my dreams Chorus: I know that you belong to me every night, you suddenly appear in my eyes It happens when I sleep, it isn't right, what I do in my dreams with you It isn't right what I do in my dreams with you I love the way you come to me every night My fantasies are real, and they never lie If you only knew, what I do in my dreams with you, yeah It isn't right, Lord knows that it isn't right The world can make you cynical, with all its love and pain But I don't have to carry the weight of the world (chorus) (Solo) Baby don't wake me, let me take you on an endless journey We touch, and the softest kiss explodes with lust, yeah It's real, you can't deny the heat you feel And if I die before I wake, baby, that's all right (chorus) I know that you belong to me every night, you suddenly appear in my eyes (repeats out...) Still My Bleeding Heart
A child to a boy, from a boy to a man Pride growing stronger, reaching his victories He speaks no lies, he fights his cause He judges not the scavengers that persecute humanity Fate does call and the sickness falls, lights of life dim down Fear like an alien comes to view, but with words like the mountains I'll die like a soldier in your arms, my will enduring till the pain is gone Then he looked into his lover's eyes and he cried Chorus: In the name of love, still my bleeding heart For the love of God, still my bleeding heart His chin he held high, and the courage in his voice Was like the burning of the sun, but like the breath of an angel How could this be, I had to scream Why this innocent young boy, must suffer so helplessly? But who am I to challenge God In the ways of the world, remain divine mystery I crumble down on my hands and knees While his words fill the air, as he looks into his destiny I'll die like a soldier in your arms, and I will be brave so you can be strong And then he looked into his lover's eyes and he cried (chorus) (Solo) And he died like a soldier in his lover's arms Brave as a hero in a blood red war And his final words as he reached for the stars In the name of love, still my bleeding heart Be well my love, still my bleeding heart In the name of love, still my bleeding heart For the love of God, still my bleeding heart (repeats out...) Sex & Religion
Repent, repent, repent ye sinners What do you think you got, when you thought you had a lot But all your feelings are dead? And who do you think you are, when you're reaching for the stars But all your feelings are dead? Must you make a decision, between sex and religion Why can't you love God in your bed? Chorus: Well, Jesus Christ is in your bed tonight, to bring you back from the dead How are you gonna fight for what you think is right If all your feelings are dead? And what can you know of love, from the eyes of a child to the heavens above When all your feelings are dead? It's a tragic condition, sex and religion, makin' a manic mess in your head (chorus) Jesus Christ, or any son of the heatless light When all your feelings are dead Resurrection! I raise my hands high up into the air Get down on my knees and start-a-prayin' When love walks in, my body begins I feel my promised land comin', but I gotta go to Hell now And those creatures, evangelist preachers The ones that take money, for the promise of hope Well, they are dangerous, I'm not dangerous Brain washing us, and we're not gonna take it (Solo) I just wanna know, oh, Lord, how it is so How is it that you can take my sins away? Oh, Lord tell me, so I can see the light again I don't think anybody can take my sins away How can the truth be known, if we got little black holes in our souls And all our feelings are dead? Are we imprisoned by sex and religion Or is God the one that's trapped in our mess? (chorus) Jesus Christ, or any son of the heatless light To bring you back from the dead So remember now folks, when you kneel to pray Blow a little kiss to the hypocrites Good God knows when you turn the other cheek Which direction you're pointing it [Holy shit. Holy Jesus Christ, I hurt your brain, hah, Great God, Steve, oh My fingers are numb. Right now? Yeah, they're numb Have I deprived my brain of oxygen? Dirty Black Hole
Creeping 'cross the canvas of color, crawling in a cold delight Bitter sweet perversions, paint their picture cross their precious sky And it's all I've been searching for Wretched is the filth, that grinds the holy with its doubt Embrace its heart and tear it out Chorus: Reach into the fire, see if you can feel my soul Burning with desire, to be free from this dirty black hole Can you bring me liberation? Do you know the depth of my obscenities? Love is lost, love is cold, love is sick, love is dead When love is in the shadows of insanity And it's all I've been searching for Cursed are the bastard sons of stupidity Grind that knife and slash their life (Chorus) (Solo) And it's all I've been searching for Greater is the greatness, gained through humility Close your eyes, step inside (Chorus repeats 2x) Touching Tongues
(Instrumental) State Of Grace
(Instrumental) Survive
Get ready for your life, won't you take your place in line You may close your eyes if you please Try to keep it clean, there's so many here you see, everybody needs to get by And if you fall on your face on the way, you'll get it together someday Chorus: Like the sun in the sky, we will fall and we will rise Helping each other survive Just like the animals, we need to carry on, or how would we ever survive? Prejudice is pain, just like poison in your veins Burning up your hope and your strength Freedom you will find, in your spirit and your mind Nothing ever can take that away And when your castles of sand melt in the sea Mountains will move with your faith (chorus) (Solo) (chorus repeats 2x) Pig
Seweeee!!! Why try to hide? Runnin' ain't about to gonna do anything for you my little one Oh they try to get inside of me, why do they bother anyway? We mustn't worry, anything Tell me what you see, pig, are they here? I'll rip and slaughter he who takes my pig from me Chorus: Here little piggy go, pig! Live in muck, I love my pig! Those filthy little lovers, piggy pigs! Liberate! See my big panic! Sicker than I've ever been, when I see myself inside of you But, I love you, my crude flesh, stain my tongue with your mess Suckle, suckle, oh, gross, it's the roast (chorus) (Solo) I'll save you! The Road To Mt.Calvary
(Instrumental) Down Deep Into The Pain
So naive, so innocent, thrust in a world too intense Flesh is weak but the soul is strong, and you will bleed but you'll carry on Yes you need your pain, life is pain I could hold your hand, but you must take your pain I don't need sacrifice, I don't need advice This hurt surrounds me like a dissonance Anger is power, I use it to protect myself from insanity You gotta go down deep down into the pain Let it purge your soul like flesh to a razor blade Dig down deep into the pain Surrender, surrender, dig into Euphoria Time may never heal the wounds, hearts bleed hard even the sun cries moon Fate is tragic just for heavens sake, the good Lord giveth and taketh away 'Cause you need your pain, God gave us pain I can hold you in my arms, but I can't take away your pain I am not long for this world please save me from myself and my discipline Lashing out with tight fists in despair, my plight is running from reality Chorus: You gotta go down deep down into the pain Let it purge your soul like flesh to a razor blade Dig down deep into the pain Surrender, surrender, dig in, dig in Put yourself down deep into the pain Embrace the bliss of pure sensation You can't escape from the ultimate pain So let your senses drift into Euphoria Blood is thickest when love is bold But blood runs thin when the heart grows cold So you need your pain, we all need pain We were born into this world to feel the joy of all our pain (Solo) (chorus) [spoken:] The falling will be gentle and soothing But the awakening will be as riveting as an explosion Eyes open to total darkness, body floating in encompassing tranquility And then the voice came "Hear this voice and know that it will be with you always" Phantoms of opulent auras emblazed in a repulsively lush turmoil Of incomprehensible vastness, dance in a sea of timeless infinity And 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 Is this the voice of my God? -This is the voice of liberation Man you've got to be kidding me Go forth and rise to life rise You will have the freedom to think and choose as you wish What do I choose? -You choose in the moment Your life will be shaped around your choices And the fight is on, every minute of the day, every action in every way Is every creature's expression to be one with its creator From a simple prayer to a senseless murder Where do I find you when I need you? -You will search and you will question Worship me in your joy and curse me in your pain You will fight, kill and love in my name, but I have no name Always keep in your thoughts that life is good But do not fear death, for I am closer to you than your vry own breath And I love you, and I want you to know me Now beautiful life awaits you, and when I count to 3, you will awake And you will remember everything I've said 1-2-3 Rescue Me Or Bury Me
Summer nights such lonely times, this memory does bleed I need you in my life again Fantasies release me from the bondage of my fate The days pass like the falling rain Your eyes reflect like mirrors the beauty in your soul But anger shatters precious glass Can't you recall the intimate secrets that we truly shared The faith and trust we swore would always last I only have myself to blame, you know it takes my breath away to see you cry To love I implore, I scream in the air, claw at my chest, rip out my hair Embrace me or let my spirit die Chorus: Rescue me or bury me, rescue me or bury me (Solo) Time is like a prison cell, for those whose crime is loneliness When freedom's banging at their door When all has been said and done, you must decide swallow your pride And reach out and take these hands forevermore (chorus) All music written by Steve Vai, except: "In My Dreams With You" by Steve Vai, Roger Greenawalt, and Desomnd Child "Pig" by Steve Vai and Devin Townsend All songs Copyright 1993 SyVy Music (ASCAP) except: "In My Dreams With You" : SyVy Music (ASCAP)/EMI-April Music Inc./ Desombile Music Co, Inc/Youthful To Beauty Music (BMI) "Pig" : SyVy Music/Bucket of Nothing Music (ASCAP)
