Track Name: Iconography
ICONOGRAPHY by poisondarts

It just occurred to me how
Winehouse sings for Gershwin now
Why must it always be iconography?

I surely wouldn't choose it
America abuses it repeatedly on TV
every time I flip the channel
I see more and more and more and more...

Monk, Bird, Billie Holiday
Miles, Cab Calloway
It just occurred to me how
Winehouse sings for Gershwin now
Why must it always be iconography?
Track Name: I'm Still Runnin'
I'm Still Runnin' by poisondarts.
I started seeing faces in shadows, glittered stones in my hand,

I saw winners and losers too.

All the shimmering lights, such a pleasant surprise,

I didn't know what I was getting into.

Then all the lights they decayed, all the red turned to gray,

don’t you know that I fought my way through.

Bitter debts in the gravel, cigarettes I've choked,

Make me start to get to thinkin this was some kind of joke, so I ran.

Yes I ran, and I'm still runnin', as fast as I can.

I ran down to the desert, saw my legs in the sand.

I turned around, I saw him lying there with birds in his hands.

I mistook him for god, and took all that I can

Couldn't sell my heart and soul just to get me a man, so I ran.

Yes I ran, and I'm still runnin', as fast as I can.

I never meant to be happy, I never meant to be brave.

But these things crept up behind, before I fell in the grave.

And now I'm runnin' from love, cuz it's all that I have.

Gotta race through the shadows, to the light at the end.

So I ran, I ran, and I'm still runnin', as fast as I can.
Track Name: Snakes
SNAKES by poisondarts.

There he is again
the dark man standing in the corner
there he is again
a nightmare I've known

this is why I can never be alone
it's too much it's too much it's too much
why can't I ever be alone?
it's too much it's too much it's too much

I've tried to hide the secrets from my mind
but when I sleep they're too extreme
they will find me like a thief in the night
and take me back to my dream

why can't I ever be alone?
it's too much it's too much it's too much
why can't I ever be alone?

There he is again
the dark man standing in the corner
there he is again
a nightmare I've known before

I am standing in the corner
watching myself make mistakes
i'm unable to stop and unable to understand
I have snakes under the rug
and everyone is ready to run
I come undone sometimes.

this is why I can never be alone
it's too much it's too much it's too much
why can't I ever be alone?
it's too much it's too much it's too much...
Track Name: Ask Me To Lie
ASK ME TO LIE by poisondarts.

When I wake up tomorrow, will all be forgiven?
I slept in the alley, my one consolation,
at least I bled on their morning.

You ask me to lie, I've been lying already.
And another thing...and another thing...
you've got it all wrong, if you think I'm all right on my own.

You talk about going away for the winter,
if you change your mind then you'll know where to find me
if you change your mind then you'll realize I'm easy to find.

You call it love, I don't think that it's funny
So maybe I'll see you in summer, on a sunday
you ask me to lie, i've been lying here all this time.
