Die geheimen Tageb├╝cher von einer verderbten Existenz

Behind these gates you will hear my thoughts screaming like nerves under the sun and feel my emotion laughing to the empty ether.
Welcome Dear Wanderer, make yourself at home.
The road is long and tortuous and I hope you enjoy yourself.

Fraternally Yours,
Poison Creeper

HAPPY

DISAPPOINTED

WARRIOR

U.S.L.S. 1

SAND CASTLES IN THE SNOW

WORRY

BRAVE NEW WORLD

LIKE THAT

SAME OLD STORY

ARMADA



HAPPY
All those oh
So trendy in their flapper and flair
Delinquent derelict
Four walls and a square
Never should you worry about society
The best things in this life are never free
Treat this whole world to a cavalry rout
And when you've had enough of go, go, go and get out

Is everybody happy
Well are you happy

Get a live-in lover
Never leave her alone
The lifestyle is impressive
And you've moved up a tone
Circulate in circles
Leave the centre at home
And happy is this hero
Never needing a throne

Is everybody happy
Well are you happy

We're having a party and everyone's welcome
And if you've got no friends I'm sure we'll invent some

It's things and then it's places
Not people and their faces
It's things and then it's places
Not people and their faces
And are you happy

Don't go near the water till you learn how to swim
The parodies and prophecies
Cataclysm
Probably a proverb
Like blood from a stone
And happy is this hero
Never needing a throne

Is everybody happy
Well are you happy

It's things and then it's places
Not people and their faces



DISAPPOINTED*
Disappointed
Promises
Promises
Old tired
Worn out second hand sentences
One thing
With you is certain
You're a really sad person
So sad

Disappointed a few people
When friendship reared its ugly head
Disappointed a few people
Well, isn't that what friends are for
What are friends for

You
You're just a really bad person
Who won't
You won't listen to anyone
No not you
With those half moon eyelids
Just babbling on
Your useless defences
So sad

Disappointed a few people
When friendship reared its ugly head
Disappointed a few people
Well, isn't that what friends are for
What are friends for

This erratic haphazard
Fluttering
This to-ing and fro-ing
Like a confused moth
The collusion
Illusion
And it's all ad infinitum
You're a really sad person
You're really so sad

Disappointed a few people
When friendship reared its ugly head
Disappointed a few people
Well, isn't that what friends are for
What are friends for

Fools and horses
Running their courses
And brow beaten down
Like dust on the ground
You cheat easily
Like sweet charity
And all of the bastards
The world despises
Springing surprises
In newer disguises
You cheat easily
Like all charity



WARRIOR
Fields they have eyes
Woods they have ears
Fish always sink
Head first downward
I'll never dismount
I ride the tiger
Crosses are ladders
Leading to heaven
Keep the candle burning
Bright in the window
It's the only light
I'll see tonight
Beggars can't be choosers
Shrouds have no pockets
Some of us wake up
Others roll over
Hear the dog bark
Watch the trees sway
Keep the candle burning
Both night and day
Many invade
I take no quarter
This is my land
I'll never surrender
