Little red rubies
You will bleed
Little red rubies
Are the seed
For the here and the now
The future and past
I think I know
This couldn't last
But there is no end
No end in sight
The rubies they bring
Such a fright
But I love them so
Crystals that glow
Deep in the night
Watch how they flow

This Feeling...
This odd feeling...
It makes me wanna cry,
It makes me wanna look up,
And into these dark skies.
I do not know why,
I've sunk so low.
I was up so high,
Then it went down, slow.
This feeling inside,
It's tearing me up.
The joy and the pain,
I want to give up...
But I won't,
I never will,
End this life.
But even still...
The heart is such
An odd thing...
That it can break me up
Then make me sing.
Why is this feeling
Creeping into my life?
So hurtful and yet...
I want this strife.

When the world is too much
I feel you warm me up
When things go too far
You are always waiting for me
Sliding down my parched throat
I feel the buzz of joy
Surge through my mind
And I can see clearly again
Drown my sorrows
In the whiskey..
The rum...
The vodka....
When thoughts over power me
I can always turn to you
When life keeps me up at night
You put me too sleep
Strengthening my peace of mind
Only to end in more pain
More musing
More things to think about
The things
You make me do
I can't take it
In the real world
So I will drown my sorrows
And never live in the real world again
Because if I ever have to wake up..
I'll find out what i've done.

The Same Sky
He hits her hard
She cries and cries
He treats her wrong
And then she dies
She lives a life
Easy and full
And finds her true love
And her life remains dull
He tried to hide
The cuts the slits
That he has placed
Upon his wrists
She sings out her heart
To a loving crowd
And they scream and scream
Their love out loud
He runs around
Throws the ball
With fans that cheer
They see it all
Now what is the same
In these lives I have named
But the same bright blue sky
And the same stars there they lie
We are all connected
Happy or sad
By the same big bright moon
A sky that's star-clad

Holding peace by Sadmonster Holding peace :iconsadmonster:Sadmonster 1 6
Help me grow this garden,
Love it watch it glow.
See deep within,
The pain,
The sin.
The things i did not know.
Help me grow this garden,
Love it watch it live.
How fast it grows,
The rose,
It froze
And for that i can't forgive.
Help me grow this garden,
Love it 'till it dies.
Your false love hit,
The thorns they slit,
Now lets see who cries.

So I know it's pretty pretentious of me to ask you this out of nowhere after practically ignoring you for a year, but would you consider designing another album cover for me? Don't worry it won't be another "trade guitar for lame Jesus guitar idea" thing.

Just let me know if you'd consider it and what you'd want in return thanks man :)
