I Percieve Things


    


sometimes if I'm in mourning,I'm hit with the daze
of nights that were given to a substance use
running through the bone of a body that's already been abused
by a world(in me)the stupid people in the neighborhood
so if it's a problem to hold to a sensitive soul
so hurt by insensitive trolls
bridge
Now I don't know what you've been told...
All I know is I am fed up with atrocities
from this world
chorus
I perceive things,much too cold
I am now the cynic and I
can't believe what's been told
2nd verse
Isn't it amazing?
How the body and the mind start to centralize on growth?
Negative or Positive in Energy is what's been shown
by the people,who change a landscape many times
they misuse it as a home
fuhgetabout the Real Deal
it's not what's been sold
bridge
chorus
copyright 1998 Ish Marquez

 
  


IS THERE REALLY SUCH A WORD

....is there really such a word
where hope and desolation lie...
is there really such a thing
that makes the crippling pain worthwhile...
Is there such a truth
that hopes and lends to little lies
to make a man rip apart his own pride...
Why is it that ghosts that are alive
or have once died...
seem to haunt an addict
in his very troubled mind...
Is there such a way
where you can alleviate the pain...
And in truth that word
is just a simple name...
(chorus)
Why did the siren seem to scream across the sky
Why did her voice just seem to vanish in the night
Is there a way where you can justify the shame
And in truth that word is just your simple name....

Darkness In Her Cage





There's a book of life inside a moving cage
wrapped in flesh and blood in volume one...
Somewhere in it you read life gave you leeway
vicariously through it treading on...
Twist and turning into darkened alleyways
escaping from the coming of the sun...
How ironic was when you clutched your free-will
a trap was set in darkness when it sprung...
chorus
It's a trick like in a book of pop-ups
pull a lever with a key and lock up
in the next page
you're alone inside your cage
Past experience keeps showing you in spades
geese get cooked before they're even done...
One split second in a choice you had to make
a flesh and blood novella filled with puns...
Your bookmarker was a needle to your face
Coking with Doc Pepper you woke up
You were crying thanking God that you've been saved
and then forgot the coming of the Son...
chorus

After This The Flood


    

 

Shallowness is now instilled in you and me
We're copping our time
And you hide---behind your Times...
Your Wall Street finds you
with a fat bank account
but with no soul...
And with what soul
that leads you far from your own Shaman paths...
my spirit is lamenting...
because it all feels over
chorus
I was never second best
not to you
I've known this too long
too long
bridge
2nd verse
And it's driving this young man into the ground
and it'll be over
it'll be over
And when I die
It'll be over
It'll be over
It'll be over....
chorus
I was never Second Best
this is true....
I've known this too long......
too long
too long
too long........


To Clarify A Question


    
this is just an answer to the question that is known now
this is what I'll answer just to clarify your head
this is just a reason to accept what isn't know now
a statement to a reason which somehow you must accept
bridge
I will justify myself only to me
It's a right of mine accepting I am me
If you need to know I'll tell you who I'll be
I will answer to myself and only me
2nd bridge
Clarifying my decisions
Identifying my mission
I come to terms with my own actions....
copyright 1998 Ish Marquez

Multi Color China Doll


    
I've run 'round the scene and I've been ornery
Looks like my good loving was the wrong thing,wrong thing
I've run 'round the town and I've been ornery
She had blew my mind and now she's faltering
faltering...she was the
Sweetest little China Doll
I've ever got to be with
2nd verse
Boy I have these blues and boy they're killing me
Looks like my good loving was the wrong thing,wrong thing
What shall I do now,now that she's gone from me
where's my Crew I need them yeah I'm lonely,
lonely.....she was the
sweetest little China Doll I ever got to be with
sweetest little China Doll I ever got to be with.....

Where We Both Go(That is Where We Are)

   
We are like a rhyme in time that's elevating rapidly and flowing
Where we both go that is where we are(2X)
Even if it's dodging traffic just to get to work so we won't blow it
Where we both are that is where we are(2X)
chorus
I accept the fact that you're my lady
and we have to get things right
like a Man In Black I walk the line
to make sure that it holds real tight
call me morning noon or night
and if you can't of won't
please don't sweat
'Cause where you go I'll not be very far
Where you go I'll not be very
2nd very
Even if your mama doesn't like the color of my skin
please don't sweat it
We won't be there for so very long(2X)
Even if your friends don't think that I am all of that
please don't sweat it...
we create our simple little song(2x)
chorus
Where we both go that is where we are
Where we both go that is where we are
copyright2006-07 originally the Ballad of Jan and Simone by Ish Marquez


Schoolyard Sociologist


    
words by Ish Marquez music by Manny Oquendo and Ish Marquez c.1994

I used to think that maybe you and me were part of a world gone wrong
with its endless corruption
I suppose I gave a thought or two to awakening a race full of
self-destruction
Insecurity's my shield and it taught me to beware and to look out
'cause who the hell can you trust now
Yes I used to know you back then when we used to be ten
but we're twelve years old now
2nd verse
Yes I'm different from the others and I'm smarter than them all
and I know that you used to be,too
got harrassed by the monkeys in the yard and I guess you were too weak
to try and fight them back too
I survived because I kept my personality to hell with all society
and all of its public schools
and to you my ex-best friend since we won't talk again
let me state a big fat
FUCK YOU.
I've become oblivious to all the obvious
I've become invisible to all visibility.



WHO TORE THE FAMILY APART


copyright 2008 ish marquez
Did someone once tell me what I'd do for you
would leave me in these consequences
leaving me just contemplating what did I do wrong to you...
Even though you left me in shattered pieces
so strung out on my self doubt
knowing I would never see
a silver lining in your cloud
chorus
Who tore the family apart2x
I thought it was going strong but you had other
plans right from the start
2x
So damn sensual and so confused
so thick-headed and complicated
you say that it's me who's jaded
nothing is so wrong with you
which of us wanted stable living
wanting something more from life
a son or daughter in our world
in hopes of ending some of strife
chorus
Imagining a world of scrimping and saving
pennies for our brand new world
guessing games for naming baby
wishing for that boy or girl
behind my back you entered clinic
never mentioning a word
the wishes and the dreams collapse
now all of this just seems absurd
chorus



Pipe Dream Memories


    


It's not that these times feel right
I let go to relax my aching mind...
memories are so damn strange
nothings feeling good that's mine
what will the others say
when they find out that I had to lie
said everything was A-OK
but I'm miserable deep inside
chorus
Do you remember me?
Do you remember me or not?
2nd verse
City life is so damned strange
without you being by my (aching)side
my head hangs down so drunk with shame
and you don't give a shit about my time
I'd kill to have that love for one day
I can't believe you won't want mine
I'm feeling so goddamned deranged
the days on Earth are all dead-time....
chorus




Glow Yer Glow


This is the version as recorded on "Goin' Thru."

Glow you disappoint me when you shine your light in front of me
Glow I know you shun me when you shine that light in front of me
Glow I know your life's seen better days than mine that I perceive
But glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see

You're a legend in your own mind
The things that you create are kinda sad
The things that you create are kinda sad
You're a legend in your own mind
The things that you create are kinda sad
The things that you create are kinda sad

Glow you disappoint me when you shine your light in front of me
Glow I know your life's seen better days than mine that I perceive
But glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see
Glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see

Glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see
Glow I know you shun me when you shine your light in front of me
Glow I know your life's seen better days than mine that I perceive
But glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see
Glow you'll never touch my light my fire burns bright for all to see
Glow I know you're not sincere and you are not sincere and you are not for me
Glow I know you're not sincere and you are not sincere and you are not for me
