“I am flying, I am glowing – LOOK AT ME NOW!”…

The dark, dark preacher
With raven black hair

Eyes full of mystery
Projects an icy stare

At those laid out before him…
The gathered congregation

A church of all religions
Stood in hushed anticipation…

Awaiting him to deliver
Words from his soul

The poetry from the deep…
Within a world he controls

Creating all the characters
And guiding their destiny

Before taking their life…
As they beg and they plea…

For mercy from this madman…
The man who never lived

A reformed fucking junkie…
Who the Gods may not forgive

Yet still he stands there
With tales of death and gloom

Captivating his audience…
Inspiring them with doom

As sonnets of depressive misery
And stories of destruction

Enter the gatherings mind…
Sucking them into a storm

That rages upon high
Above the Netherworld masters…

Making their eyes cry
And leaving them breathless…

Transformed and transfixed
Being touched by his spirit

Elevating their souls
Leaving them utterly bewitched…

By the madman preacher
And his dark. dark sermons

The man who slayed the dragon…
But still battles his demons…

“In the end I’m not interested in that which I fully understand…
The words I have written over the years are just a veneer…
There are truths that lie beneath the surface of the words…
Truths that rise up without warning like the humps of a sea monster and then disappear…
What performance and song is to me is finding a way to tempt the monster to the surface…
To create a space where the creature can break through what is real and what is known to us…
This shimmering space where imagination and reality intersect…
This is where all love and tears and joy exist…
This is the place…
This is where we live”…

Heart in your mouth…

Line in the sand…

It took this moment…

To truly understand…

Looking up to the sun…

In a blood red sky…

She infected your brain…

Now you question why…

Rewinding the words…

You thought she said…

Trying to stop the visions…

Playing inside your head…

That leave you gasping…

Nauseated and sick…

How did you miss it…

Her sleight of hand trick…

That stole your heart…

And left you reeling…

Down on the floor…

Praying and kneeling…

Trying to work out…

What is your next move…

Hoping the Gods…

Will begin to sooth…

The pain now felt…

Deep inside your heart…

The total destruction…

As she ripped apart…

Your aching soul…

With such great ease…

On her sinful mission…

To simply fucking tease…

And missing the signs…

You fell hook and line…

Never saw it coming…

Blinded by her shine…

The glint and glimmer…

Of the fool’s gold…

That’s left you broken…

Bruised, battered and cold…

He was running out of time…
And heading for the stars…

His conscience was heavy…
And his heart full of scars…

He was losing his mind…
Detaching from cruel reality…

His head spinning around…
And verging on insanity…

A kaleidoscope of colours…
Began infecting his sight…

With such distorted visions…
That lit up his final night…

As a girl sat next to him…
Started speaking fluent French…

Edging closer and closer…
On a cold wooden bench…

She had the Devil in her eyes…
Was not making any sense…

As the Angels and Demons…
Began their hallucinating dance…

With Twenty serpents in her hair…
And a fire between her thighs…

Her pointed words held no truth…
Just perfectly constructed lies…

That snaked into his ears…
Forcing him to stop and listen…

As the snow started falling…
And the shimmering frost glistened…

Under a witching midnight moon…
Who watched his dream unfold…

But didn’t offer any escape…
Didn’t offer to stop his world…

From spinning round and round…
At a million miles an hour…

As her tongue entered his mouth…
Leaving him spellbound by the power…

Of a Thousand kisses deep…
That ripped into his soul…

While this dream descends into chaos…
And he finally loses control…

The hand written confession,
she left by the bed…

Was filled with dark secrets,
from deep within her head…

Revealing her anguish and
stained by her tears…

It was an accumulation,
built up through the years…

She’s now left it behind,
for those close to read…

As her battle scarred soul,
was released and finally freed…

And this detailed explanation,
confessed all her sins…

All the mistakes she made,
whilst encouraged to sing…

By the Devil in her heart,
such a forbidden lover…

Who took full control and
distracted like no other…

She was attracted to him,
like a moth to a flame…

She couldn’t resist him and
she carried that shame…

Along with many secrets,
that she hid from her world…

As she risked everything,
whilst the whirlwind whirled…

And swept her up into,
a deceitful double life…

Rendezvousing with strangers and
sexual encounters in the night…

But the thrill of the moment,
bore the heavy price of guilt…

And the cold morning light,
would waken her demons inbuilt…

Who haunted her days,
till she could take no more…

And when she finished the letter,
she finally ended that war…

The little bird sits,
in the eye of the storm…

On a darkened rooftop,
all tattered and torn…

Her feathers all ruffled,
hiding new scars…

She’s looking for refuge,
under falling stars…

Searching for calm and
any kind of sanctuary…

Somewhere to hide,
until she can be free…

And it is all over,
when she will again fly…

In-between the sunset and
the dark moonlit sky…

But until that time,
the angry storm rages…

And each painful day,
writes new chapters and pages…

Of a complicated story,
where this little bird got lost…

Before finding herself,
without realising the cost…

As in a circle with three sides,
she got caught in-between…

And only pure sinners,
could feel what she’s seen…

As dodging the lightning,
became her awakening…

And a thirst for excitement,
became so very frightening…

Forcing a conclusion and
igniting Hell’s fire…

Which seeks out the truth,
as the flames reach higher…

Now sat on that rooftop,
it feels so out of control…

And the little bird attempts,
to reclaim her soul…

Many are the voices,
talking in his mind…

Vicious and destructive,
angry and unkind…

Always pointing out,
all his many faults…

Where he could do better,
it’s a constant assault…

That drives him to drink,
all this madness away…

Opening a new bottle,
each and every day…

A sip as he awakes,
a shot during work…

And when nobody notices,
he allows himself a smirk…

He knows it’s a problem,
but drowns those thoughts away…

Buring Devil’s deep inside,
to face some other day…

Infecting blood with alcohol,
poisoning his brain…

He can’t remember a time,
he felt sober and quite sane…

And strong enough to fight,
the demons in control…

Who weaken his defences,
whilst feasting on his soul…

Leaving blurred memories,
of what went on before…

Images of his childhood,
so painful and so raw…

But he has the anaesthetic,
that quickly numbs his pain…

And it’s easier than fighting,
through the wind and rain…

So he drowns out the voices,
that stalk his weakened mind…

Living in a drunken haze,
leaving real life behind…

This remote control is useless,
it won’t switch off the pain…

Eyes stare into blackness,
searching through the rain…

Forever in a deep dark sleep,
the haunting visions spread…

Eternal sadness yours to keep,
you chose the path ahead…

A deal with the Devil and
you thought you were wise…
A deal with the Devil and
now you’re trapped in his lies…

The Anti-Christ is dancing,
feasting on your soul…

The deal you struck was binding,
he’s now in full control…

He feels you’re pent up anger and
he knows you want revenge…

Searching for an answer and
mistakes you can’t avenge…

A deal with the Devil and
you knew what that implied…
A deal with the Devil and
your soul’s his Golden prize…

Fear engulfs and isolates,
rips your broken heart…

Eternal damnation now awaits,
As fallen angels tear you apart…

As the wolves have started howling,
they won’t give you a head start…

Your reality is now unravelling,
your life is falling apart…

A deal with the Devil and
now you act with surprise…
A deal with the Devil,
you shouldn’t have looked in his eyes…

Now you regret your choices,
but they felt right at the time…

Try to forget those voices,
That remind you of your crime…

Bolt the door inside your mind,
keep it forever closed…

Afraid to let the others find,
your nightmares totally exposed…

A deal with the Devil,
the serpent with snake eyes…
Can’t break a deal with the Devil,
so kneel before the lord of the flies…

There’s a man at the door…
Wants to buy your soul…
Says it’s worth double…
As it’s got a Black hole…

Got a big Black hole…
Deep down inside…
Been getting bigger…
Each time you lied…

Every time you lied…
The man here knew…
Made him smile…
As the Black hole grew…

The Black hole grew bigger…
Swallowed up your heart…
Covered up the truth…
Shot out a poison dart…

That poison dart…
Hit the one you love…
She took flight…
Like an escaping Dove…

That escaping Dove…
Has broken your soul…
All that’s left…
Is a big Black hole…

It’s that Black hole…
That this man wants…
Killing time in the shadows…
As her memory haunts…

And that memory haunts…
Stalks your hurting head…
You made the choices…
Now you wish you were dead…

You wish you were dead…
Because the living is hell…
Now the time has come…
And you’re ready to sell…

Yes you’re ready to sell…
Detach that big Black hole…
So just close your eyes…
And hand the Devil your soul…
