WARPAINT
(words  music by Gary Schutt)

The walls torn down around you
Have you friends to keep you strong
In your time of dire need?
You never stop to reason
Even if your mind complies
Take a hold on all that you believe

Your guilty conscience waves bye-bye
So put on your warpaint
You’ve never seen it fit to try
So put on your warpaint

Insanity your only friend
Walks hand in hand with me
Keeping tabs on all that you do
If you just took the time to reach inside yourself
You’d have a different point of view

Never enough to satisfy
So put on your warpaint
The path you choose is your demise
So put on your warpaint

So take my pride again
And all that don’t belong
To feed their damned hypocrisy
One day the heads will roll
And thiers will lead the way
Right down the middle of our street

Time to get up and face the day
So put on your warpaint
Go show the world of what you’re made
Put on your warpaint

IN SOME OTHER LIFETIME
(words music by Gary Schutt)

I stand in wonder and watch the sky
The questions filling my mind in time will die
The silent martyr takes a final breath
Storm clouds engulf the mountains and pass overhead

Imagine us alone secluded by our dreaming
It’s like I’ve always known this final passion

Uninvited the feeling arrives, it’s taken a lifetime
A one way ticket to nowhere, and I’m falling, I’m falling
You and me were meant to be in some other lifetime
Trapped inside our minds are we...
...Are we falling?

Surround my being with emptiness
If under orders you’d be summoned with a kiss
Summoned with a kiss

Confiding in your I seek the truth, the hidden meaning
My spirit walks alone, only for a moment
It’s like I’ve always known this fatal passion

Uninvited the feeling arrives, it’s taken a lifetime
A one way ticket to nowhere, and I’m falling, I’m falling
You and me were meant to be in some other lifetime
Trapped inside our minds are we...
...Are we falling?

NO MAN’S LAND
(words music by Gary Schutt)

Another assassination
National headline news
Another car bomb, taking out a city block
Still there’s nothing you can do
Another drive by shooting
Another child in the way
Another gang related incident
Too bad
They shouldn’t have been there anyway

I don’t wanna be around when the end comes down
I don’t wanna hand around with my knees on the ground

It’s a no man’s land
War heads to the left of me
So barbarian
War heads to the right of me
Tell me who are you to make a buck no matter what?
Turn my home into a no man’s land

Another drug waiting for you
This one’s better than the last
Twice as addictive for half the price
Hey kid, ya wanna make a buck fast?
Another product on the market
More pollution in the air
Traffic jams
Toxic fumes
Cigarettes
Perfumes
Man, do you even care?

I don’t wanna be around when the end comes down
I don’t wanna hang around with my knees on the ground

Its’ a no man’s land
War heads to the left of me
So barbarian
War heads to the right of me
Tell me who are you to make a buck no matter what?
Turn my home into a no man’s land

Be scared for the children ‘cause they’re gonna have to live in the world that they create
Will they change in time?
Who’s gonna run the world when the kid ya didn’t want doesn’t want to go to school?
Who’s on your side?
My side?
Who cares?

I GUESS I’M STILL IN LOVE
(words music by Gary Schutt)

Why do I sit by the phon night after night
Wanting to talk to you?
I don’t know
Why do I drive by your house up and down he block
Wanting to see you
I don’t know why I feel this way
I can’t explain why it remains

I guess I’m still in love
Even after getting used to being without you
I guess I’m still in love
After all these years I’m thinking
Why can’t you be here with me?

Why do I search through my mail day after day
Hoping to hear from you?
I don’t know
Why do I still hear your voice every time I dream?
Still I have no clue
I don’t know what it’s coming to
What can I do?
I’m not over you

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
STRANDED
(words music by Gary Schutt)


Every time I catch myself I’m thinking of you
I see your face in the sky, the stars and the moon
I loose my cool whenever you come around
I tremble in fear when your voice makes a sound
Then I hit the ground

Every glance you paralyze me
Every chance you sneak another by me

But I’m stranded, stranded
I don’t know what to do
Stranded, stranded
By the thought of you
Though of you

All the pain disappears every time you are near
You’re my fantasy and my darkest fear
In the dead of night your name I call
Though I don’t know who you are at all

Every stare I’m taken by you
You pull me in and you take me even higher

But I’m stranded, stranded
For a little while
Stranded, stranded
By the touch of your smile
I’m stranded, stranded
My senses growing numb
‘Cause I’m stranded, stranded
Afraid to fall in love
Fall in love

How much longer till we break the silence?
I feel the tension build and build inside us

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME
(words music by Gary Schutt)


The shadows dwell inside my room
They talk to me with your voice
Your photo bears a perfect likeness of the pain
Of the pain

I wanted so much more than you could give

I know, you know, they know that it should have been me
Waking by your side
I know, you know, they know that it should have been me
There’d be no reason to hide
I don’t want your pity
Don’t want sympathy
‘Cause I’ll be fine without...
You know, I know, they know that it should have been me
No doubt

It seems to me you left yourself so wide open for a fall
So take what little pride you’ve gathered
And get away, far away

You wanted so much more than he could give

I’ve seen you sit inside your room
A blackened soul all alone
The lights turned off to hide the bruises and the tears and the fears

He wanted so much more than you could give

SHE’S LETTING GO
(words music by Gary Schutt)


Why does it hurt so bad to be in love?
When you think it’s love
You never know if it’s you she’s thinking of
What does she think of?

Out of time
I’m running out of time
Out of love
She’s giving up on love

Oh
Don’t say it’s so
She’s letting go
She’ll say it’s over when she wants to
She’s letting go

Don’t try to change her mind
It will only push her further away
Don’t try to stop her from walking out the door
‘Cause she doesn’t want to stay

Out of time
I’m running out of time
Out of love
I’m giving up on love

Oh
Don’t say it’s so
She’s letting go
She’ll say it’s over when she wants to
She’s letting go

She’s got the power
She’s got the heart of steel
She’s got the reason to make her love seem real
I know that this time she’ll never change her mind
Turn back the clock and leave her far behind

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
YOUR FRIEND
(words music by Gary Schutt)

If you had a choice
Would you do it all over again?
If you could get your way
Would you change the past
To make the present better?
If you could make one wish
To make your life less painful
Would you?
Could you forget about me?

When the shadows come to darken up your day
I’ll provide he light to chase them away
And help you start anew
If you gave sometime to realize your mistakes
Would you?
Could you forget about him?

No matter how dark the road I’ll always be your friend
No matter how far we go I’ll always be your friend

So you take the path that God has given you
Do you think you’ll last, or try to escape reality?
If you need a friend
Someone to be strong for you
I offer my hand
Once again
All for you

No matter how dark the road I’ll always be your friend
No matter how far we go I’ll always be your friend
No matter how far from home I’ll always be your friend
No matter how all alone I’ll always be your
Always be your friend

FAULT LINE
(words music by Gary Schutt)


Part I


A cold wind blows off the sea
Through the trees and into the L.A. skyline
A fault line prances
The darkness dances and disturbs my dream

This night falls far too short and now I can’t sleep
This night is far from over and I don’t want to sleep

I lie and embrace the dark
I’m finding it hard to await the morning sunrise and face the day
Adifferent way
And I don’t want to stay

This night will last forever in the back of my mind
This night compels my spirit to face the light

Part II


Sunshine breaks through my window
On my pillow
I can see the far side of my room
A picture or two of what used to be you
In a thousand pieces

Last night seemed like forever only longer
Last night now seems like a dream only stronger

Sometimes I fear the nighttime
I try to fight it
I’d be fine if you were here with me
To put me to sleep
And to keep me at peace with my inner self

Last night, for thirty seconds I prepared to die
Last night is far from over
Can I put my life back again? ...back again? ...back again?

Part III


In the nighttime I’m awakened frightened that another may come
Sometimes I’m surprised I sleep at all
Shaken by anything that moves or even makes a sound
Paranoia soon to be my one true friend
Searching for tranquility, insistently, I find an answer in the kitchen under all the broken glass
That damn fault line has taken everyone and everything I own
Before I had nothing now I have even less

Part IV

Damn that fault line
Damn that fault line
Damn that fault line
Damn that fault line
