Illumino

 

The First Stone

You want to laugh, smile, crack – wise at others expense

People sit in judgment; blood with no recompense

Could be a shadow behind for there’s nothing in between

For what tomorrow brings to you is never ever seen

 

Foretold

 

Whomsoever is faultless can cast the first stone

Throw it at yourself for causes unknown

Whomsoever is unflawed can cast the first stone

You are the judge and the jury but the trial is

Your own

 

Mugging at the camera consecration misplaced

Minions at the ready all lined up to get a taste

Worship at your altar becoming your own God

But misfortune knows your first name and you’ll reap

just what you sow

 

Foretold

 

Whomsoever is faultless can cast the first stone

Throw it at yourself your for causes unknown

Whomsoever is unflawed can cast the first stone

You are the judge and the jury but your life is not

Your own

Last Rites

Music and Lyrics By: Troy Marks

Camouflage

Endless sky

Overlooks the ridge

 

Stinking breath

Soldier’s death

Today I try to live

 

Sacrificed

For a price

Pawns in the game

 

Pull the strings

On human beings

With a wave of your hand

 

I was not a machine

My heart was mine

But my mind was washed of life

Unforeseen

Still alive they’re reading my

Last Rites

 

Home again

Foreign land

Not the place I lived

 

Scenery’s same

But I have changed

Shrink says it’s within

 

But she don’t know

Absorbed the blow

But repercussions last

 

Trailer trash

In a bag

That died two years ago

 

I was not a machine

My heart was mine

But my mind was washed of life

Seventeen

I had a chance to do some things

I was not a machine

My heart was mine

My brain was washed of life

Unforeseen

Still alive they’re reading my

Last Rites

 

Sacrificed for a price

Died two years ago

I was not a machine

My heart was mine

But my brain was washed of life

Seventeen

Watched families fall and children die

I was not a machine

I had a chance

To do something be someone

Unforeseen

Still alive they’re reading my

Last Rites

Low And Behold

Music and Lyrics by: Troy Marks

Why

My youth falls into a hole

Was just so long ago

But clearly I’m not well

 

Why

A day late a dollar short

You wondered while I was forced

But did you really want to know

 

You should have been there

I wasn’t epic in scope or feeling

You should have been there all along

 

Why

Years gone and withered hands

You said I did the best that I can

But clearly it wasn’t enough

 

You should have been there

Because I wasn’t armed for the meeting

But you should have been there all along

 

Low and Behold

 

You should have been there

My trust is really fleeting

You should have been there all along

I was alone

 

You should have been there

My trust is really fleeting

You should have been there all along

 

Low and Behold

 

I’ve spent a life concealing

You should have been there

I was alone

Trippin’ on Love

Music and Lyrics By: Troy Marks

Baby, baby

You’re the sun that melts a fallen snow

Although unworthy, I pray the waters to recede

 

Baby, baby

You’re the friend to always lend a hand

But I’ve burned the body and the spirits bout to leave

 

All alone

 

Twenty five miles ‘til the sun goes down and

It’s on and on

I keep tripping on love

 

Baby, baby

You’re the rock that I stumbled on

I turned and heaved you

For my mind could not perceive

 

Baby, baby

You’re the ghost of the perfect man

The thread that weaves through

The life that might have been

 

All alone

 

I swan dive up and then the sun goes blind and

It’s on and on

I keep tripping on love

 

All alone

 

A butterfly dives with his wings outshined

It’s on and on

I just keep tripping on love

 

All alone

 

Twenty five miles ‘til the sun goes blind and

It’s on and on

I just keep tripping on love

 

All alone

 

A butterfly dives with his wings outshined and

It’s on and on

I just keep tripping on love

Passenger Side

Music and Lyrics by Troy Marks

Don’t bother with a seatbelt cause its asphalt and it’s smooth smooth going

Don’t bother looking inside cause what’s outside is far more rewarding

In so far as any kind words or warm smiles its never even needed

 

Hold on

Man up

 

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy telling your lies

Back and forward

It’s always easy taking a ride

On the

Passenger Side

 

Don’t worry bout the jealousy or hypocrisy to me it’s your doing

You invented the wheel but it’s square you can’t drive it, it wont roll very far

Once upon a time you needed me and selfishly you said I was the man

 

Hold On

Man Up

 

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy telling your lies

Back and forward

It’s always easy taking a ride

On the

Passenger Side

 

But when I fall, you’ll hit the ground

You’ll hit the ground before me

And when I rise, you’ll be by my side

But never be as quite as high as me

 

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy taking a ride

On my shoulders

Its always easy telling your lies

Back and forward

It’s always easy taking a ride

On the

Passenger Side
