Track Name: Blood Ruins Film
BLOOD RUINS FILM

Over, my significant self.
Reverse, the honor of my despair.
We, find loyalty in faith.
I'm faith, we find inspiration.

Now it's gone, never again
Now it's gone, blood ruins film
Now it's gone, never again
Now it's gone, blood ruins film

Reason, has seemed to reach its end.
Belief. We take and we acquiesce.
And in this move, we try and design life.
Design, has led to frustration.

Now it's gone, never again
Now it's gone, blood ruins film
Now it's gone, never again
Now it's gone, blood ruins film

Now it's gone, never again
Now it's gone, where did it begin?
Track Name: Kiss By The Hotel DeVille
HOTEL DeVILLE

On the wind, the line is falling
The sound of sea, driving distant
Beneath the street lamp, the spurned crowd
You're on her, by those on that train

On the train

Watchful men, through auto window
And women wept, imprisoned pain
She melts beneath, the departing kiss
By the Hotel De Ville, frozen on that train

On the train

On the wind, the line is falling
The sounds of sea, and driving distant
She melts beneath, His departing kiss
By the Hotel De Ville, frozen on the train

On the train
Track Name: The Stain
T H E S T A I N
~ music and lyrics: Jeff Gallea & James Tabbi 1987

We took the blood, my brothers blood, and cast it ashore
We took the blood, my brothers blood, and drank the wine
We took the blood, my brothers blood, and cast it ashore
We took the blood, my brothers blood, and painted finger paints

And now we suffer, The stain of man
And now we suffer, The stain on my hand
The Stain

We took the hand, the hand of God, and made plaster casts
We took the hand, the hand of God, and painted finder paints
We took the hand, the hand of God, and made plaster casts
We took the hand, the hand of God, and fit him with rings

And now we suffer, The stain of man
And now we suffer, The stain on my hand
The Stain

The sky is falling, the sky will fall, and there's a ring in my ear
The sky is falling, the sky will fall, and there's a thorn in my side
The sky is falling, the sky will fall, and there's a ring in my ear
The sky is falling, the sky will fall, and the sea will not part

And now we suffer, The stain of man
And now we suffer, The stain on my hand
The Stain
Track Name: Turn To Silence
TURN TO SILENCE
w o r d s : Ja m e s T a b b i m u s i c : E L E V E N P O N D 1 9 8 7

Turn to silence, almost there
Feel inspiration, it cannot care
You mean so much to me, this much I see
Because of you I've come to be the key

The sun will set before the sun will rise
The reason why it's lost between the sky

There is no reason I'm leaving
Give intuition a common theme
I've come to laugh now at that myself
cause in fact there is nothing else

The sun will set before the sun will rise
The reason why it's lost between the sky

The sun will set before the sun will rise
The reason why it's lost between the sky
Track Name: Gold & Green
GOLD & GREEN

Why can't I say a word you give me
It seams that speech has up and left me
I wrap my eyes in gold and green lame
The thoughts are parched, my beauty speeds away

Look at my thoughts, hang them on the wall
You strike my doubts, your atrophy has all
You gave me license to rip the chord apart
I lay it down, try to make a start

Green and gold, green and gold
Wrapped in words I am told
Gold and green, gold and green
Wrapped in colors I have seen

Now that you're gone I'm speaking different
I thought there is no need for hesitance
I read the letters I wrote for you to read
And thought the reasons why now it's you who flee

Look at my thoughts, hang them on the wall
You strike my doubts, your atrophy has all
You gave me license to rip the chord apart
I lay it down, try to make a start
Track Name: Land Of Yellow
Land Of Yellow

Late at night I turn my head
With candle sticks around my bed
And when I sleep I dream of you
A Land Of Yellow, somewhere new

In this yellow land alone
I think about my friends at home
I found it all comes down to you
But in this dream what can I do

My body groans in sleepy poses
Wrapped in love and faded roses
So when I go to sleep at night
I dream of you in candle light

What are you going to do
When it comes through?
The Land Of Yellow,
somewhere new

When I go to sleep at night
I dream of you in candle light
I dream of you...
Track Name: Van Dykes Collar
VANDYKES COLLAR

Look down here please someone I'm dying
I can't see my pain anymore
I spent far far too long in crying
Could someone pick me up off the floor
I can't comprehend your frustrations
I'll try not look and not touch
Surrender to self realizations
But I don't think that means all too much

I give you time, now you are gone

I need some relief from this tension
That tears me apart at the seams
My shirt sleeves my only connection
My strength is far worse than it seams
Look down here please someone I'm dying
And appear that don't look all too bad
Please help me somebody I'm crying
Don't help me I'm better off dead

I give you time, now you are gone
I give you time, now you are gone
