The End Of Time

THE END OF TIME – Written by Carroll Bryant

Nuclear bombs are all I see
What will they think of next?

Somebody wants to make history
A territorial president?

Who’s going to push the button first?
When will they give it a try?

A beast with a rabid blood of thirst
Is waiting to see the whole world die

Who’s going to want to try it out?
Who’s going to show the world what life’s about?

And now people think I’m strange
Because I can see the coming of the acid rain
I’m no Nostradamus, but I’m not blind
I can see the end
The end of time

Talk of death is all I hear
What will they say tomorrow?

Maybe this is why people turn to beer
Trying to drown the sorrow

We’re just living through the changes
Forgetting what is to come

Quickly turning through the pages
No one’s laughing when the battle is done

Who’s going to want to try it out?
Who’s going to show the world what life’s about?

And now people think I have changed
Because I can see the coming of the acid rain
I’m no Nostradamus, but I’m not blind
I can see the end
The end of time

And now people think I’m strange
Because I can see the coming of the acid rain
I’m no Nostradamus, but I’m not blind
I can see the end
The end of time

Extra Intelligence

EXTRA INTELLIGENCE – Written by Carroll Bryant

In the state of your bewildered emotion
I play my fingers to your fantasy
In the way that is your sweet devotion
I move my body to your ecstasy

Pick me up and give me
Extra intelligence don’t
Serve me up to be
Another lost experiment don’t
Pick me up
If I’m not inside your thoughts
And kill me
With the meaning of existence
You dance with fever
Touching yourself to pleasure
And to know that
You could be my flavor
And when the promises are broken
How will you deal with me?

Pick me up and give me
Extra intelligence don’t
Lick me up to be
Another kind of condiment don’t
Pick me up
If I’m not inside your thoughts
And thrill me
In the kiss that is the death of me

You can program my untangled emotion
With a secret that you hide from me
And or end it now real quick
With the power you attest

Pick me up and give me
Extra intelligence don’t
Wake me up to put me
Back into my slumber (I’m sleeping) don’t
Pick me up
If I’m not inside your thoughts
And thrill me
If you’re not in love with me

Pick me up and give me
Extra intelligence don’t
Serve me up to be
Another unconnected reality don’t
Pick me up
If I’m not inside your thoughts
And kill me
With the meaning of existence
You dance with fever
Touching yourself to pleasure
And to know that
You could be my flavor
And when the words are spoken
How will you deal with me?

Every Word Tells A Story

EVERY WORD TELLS A STORY – Written by Carroll Bryant

Well, their eyes shine in the darkness
By the moons light, I can see them
They try to hide as they do whatever
And they do whatever does move them

Well, their movements talk to the stillness
And their feet shuffles them away
So I’m happy to say I don’t care where they are going
No attention to that do I pay
No, no, no, no attention to that do I pay

And every word will tell the story
Of everything that you have heard
You can say it and believe it
Believe it and you know it
And you know it when it sounds so absurd
And every picture paints an image
Of it, something that you have seen
You can take it if you want it
If you want it then believe it
And believing it is what I mean
Oh yes, believing it is what I mean

And every word will tell the story
No matter how strange it may be
You can fiddle, you can faddle
Dribble, doodle and dabble
But it’s always the same to me
And every picture paints an image
Of it, something the mind can only see
If you want it you can have it
You can have it, but believe it
And it doesn’t mean a thing to me

And every word will tell the story
Of something that you have heard
You can say it and believe it
Believe it and you know it
And you know it when it sounds so absurd
And every picture paints an image
Of it, something that you have seen
You can take it if you want it
If you want it then believe it
And believing it is what I mean
Oh yes, believing it is what I mean

Well, their eyes shine in the darkness
By the moons light I can see them
They try to hide as they do whatever
And they do whatever does move them

Well, their movements talk to the stillness
And their feet shuffles them away
So I’m happy to say I don’t care where they are going
No attention to that do I pay
No, no, no, no attention to that do I pay

Stay Away

Stay Away – Written by Carroll Bryant

How could you just pretend
Pretend that you didn’t know me
When you saw me yesterday

I thought at least we could be friends
Friends can last forever
But I guess you will never think that way so

Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You got a lot to learn
A lot to learn about love
Instead you just burn
You burn hearts and tear them apart so
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You act so immature
So I’m closing the door
And if you’re gonna act that way then please
Just stay away

What am I to do
Do now that we’re through
I guess I’ll have to play it day to day

I thought that I would try
Try but didn’t know why
Until you passed me by with nothing to say so

Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You got a lot to learn
A lot to learn about love
Instead you just burn
You burn hearts and tear them apart so
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You act so immature
So I’m closing the door
And if you’re gonna act that way then please
Just stay away

It’s the dawning of a new beginning
It’s time I learned to live
I’m done with letting you do all the taking
It’s your turn to give
Because I already gave to you the part I never gave before
But you had to completely destroy me
And leave the pieces laying on the floor

I can’t take anymore so

Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You got a lot to learn
A lot to learn about love
Instead you just burn
You burn hearts and tear them apart so
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna be
Just stay away if that’s the way you’re gonna treat me
You act so immature
So I’m closing the door
And if you’re gonna act that way then please
Just stay away

One More Minute

ONE MORE MINUTE – Written by Carroll Bryant

You came without a warning
You left without a trace
All I have to remind me
Is the memory of your face

The beauty of your smile
The shine within your eyes
Had such delightful innocence
It came as a surprise

The voice I heard that came from you
Still trickles through my ears
The water rolling down my face
Is what some people would call tears

But I call it a loneliness
I never felt before
There is no doubt about it
And now I’m really sure

If I had just one more minute
I would tell you what I’ve always wanted to say
From the first time that I saw you
Never before have I ever felt this way

I can still remember
The day we said goodbye
I fought off confusion
As of yet I don’t know why

I should have just grabbed you
And held you endlessly
I didn’t want to be too aggressive
That is just not me

But why do I feel inside
That I lost what I found?
Stolen by an unknown thief
Taken without a sound

But if I had just one more minute
I would tell you what I’ve always wanted to say
From the first time that I kissed you
Never before have I ever felt this way

Now the hardest part is over
When I had to let you go
The emptiness I feel inside
Is something you’ll never know

So I keep on believing
That I will see you again
Are we just beginning?
Or did we have the end?

I hope I wasn’t dreaming
But then again, who cares?
Because facing mornings without you
Is like facing reality’s nightmare

So can I have just one more minute?
So I can tell you what I want to say?
From the first time I ever held you
Never before have I ever felt this way

What I wouldn’t do for one more minute
So I can tell you what I really want to say
From the first time I ever saw you
Never before have I ever felt this way

So could I please have just …. one more minute?

The Pleasure is Killing Me

THE PLEASURE IS KILLING ME – Written by Carroll Bryant

Oh, the pleasure is killing me
Oh, the pleasure builds inside of me
Take it!

I was caught between a woman and her soft place
Looking face to face
Sister Isis, touch me sweet

“You!” She screamed, with that look in her eyes. “Get out of this place!”

“Well, can’t you tell me why?”

Osiris, you’re such an evil one
You think you’re having fun, but it’s disgusting to me
She said, Osiris, now look what you’ve done
I’m not having fun
You’re disgusting

But the pleasure is killing me
It’s as sweet as it can be
What is so disgusting?
Because you’re not disgusting to me

I was caught between a woman and her soft spot
Trying to decide whether or not I should stop
Or keep on with my trot
The heat just got so hot
And what she wants, I’m not

Osiris, you’re such an evil one
You think you’re having fun, but it’s disgusting to me
She said, Osiris, now look what you’ve done
I’m not having fun
You’re disgusting

But the pleasure is killing me
It’s as sweet as it can be
What is so disgusting?
because you’re not disgusting to me

I was caught between a woman and her soft place
Looking face to face
Sister Isis, touch me sweet

Hallowed Storm

HALLOWED STORM – Written by Carroll Bryant

I close my eyes to find my dreams
And suddenly it all comes together
I fly the skies to hear my screams
You and I … forever

But now I’m walking down the avenue of the damned
Searching for you but you’re not there
And I’m calling out your name
Trying to understand
Wondering if you really care
I wonder if I really care

You touch my heart to feel me breathe
Instantly I feel the pleasure
You run away and far from me
You and I … may never

But now you’re walking down the avenue of the damned
Searching for me but I’m not there
And you’re calling out my name
Trying to understand
Wondering if I really care
You wonder if you really care

But now we’re walking down the avenue of the damned
Searching for love but it’s not there
And we’re calling out for help
Trying to understand
Wondering if anyone cares
We wonder if anyone cares

“And to the love like a candle, we flicker … down the damp hallway of our souls. The bats, they screech like the pain we feel and know to this day, we lost what we had. Lost down the avenue of the … damned.”
