Poem – “Smiling Eyes.”

“Smiling Eyes.”

Long days & longer nights
Under blankets, out of sight.
A little girl with smiling eyes
Curls up for warmth; so tight.

Her nose, it flys to bait a scratch
And opens doors like lifted latch,
A face concerned in permanent
With fur that grows in patch.

The faintest sound of hurried feet
Leaving the covered underneath,
She gathers supplies and treats to eat
Despite a noted lack of teeth.

Over the years, she rose to fame
Gifted love & songs & many names
A curious heart and wanderer
Who left our lives forever changed.

Don’t be afraid now, smiling eyes
You are big and brave, despite your size.
Little candlelight of life,
I’ll think of you with each sunrise.

Long days and longer nights
Under blankets, out of sight.
A little girl with smiling eyes,
I’ll think of you with each sunrise.

Verse 1
Your wind’s a waste to carry me away
Old number 7’s askin’ me to stay
Those weapons on my wall
Ain’t got nothin’ on you
Ain’t got nothin’ on you

Verse 2
Sit and stay a while
Don’t run away so soon
Gotta come up for air
Come up for air
Come up for air
Those weapons on my wall
Just stop and stare
Just stop and stare

Chorus
Brought to me
A man in chains
Right now I simply am
That little string around your finger
Reminds me to be a man
Your lipstick on my lips and
Your hand in mine eclipsed
It’s a moment so fine
Blissfully blind
Playin’ cards on the skyline

Verse 3
Your minds a lace to hold me in sway
A picture perfect broken world kinda way
Those weapons on my wall
Ain’t got nothing on you
Ain’t got nothing on you

Verse 4
Take my hand and play a while
I promise I don’t bite
Captivated by your smile
Under shining lights
Those weapons on my wall
Just stop and stare
Just stop and stare

Chorus x 3

Released – August 7th/ 2016

Lyrics

Verse 1
My chest is so tight
Yeah, I can hardly breathe
This pretty little crown
It’ll bring you to your knees

Verse 2
Little genie in the bag
He’ll crawl in to your ears
With promises of candy and
An end to all your fears

Chorus

Don’t take the easy way out
You’re not alone
Don’t take the easy way out
So far from home

Verse 3

This place is so dark
Yeah, I can hardly see
Delay your heartache
Satisfaction guaranteed

Verse 4
Sell out your future
This school teaches lies
Regrets the major
With a minor in disguise

Chorus

Verse 5
My eyes are so tired
But I can’t sleep a wink
These broken wires, well
They’re makin’ it hard to think

Verse 6
The sweat looks good on you
With your beady bloodshot eyes
Swallow your courage
Cash in
Take your prize

Chorus x 2

Lyrics

Verse 1
Stop Lock
Red light
Over board help me out
Top notch
Bed post
A pyramid devout

Verse 2
Fall in
Feet first
Come back up and breathe
Slip through
Your hands
Heartbeat in my sleeve

Chorus
One in
One out
The weight of the world and a man
I can’t
I will
Give it away if I can

Verse 3
So Low
How high
The snake and ladder interest
Your feet tread light
Weaving a web around us

Verse 4
I feel I could
Fly away from here
Stand still
Step up
Shed your skins and fear

Chorus x 2

Lyrics

Verse 1
I saw your eyes
A sight I won’t forget
The funny thing is though
I haven’t met you yet

Verse 2
The obstacle
That stands above me
It understands
But it don’t love me

Chorus
I don’t want your train to leave
( Breathe in, Breathe Out x 2 )
And I don’t want your train to go
( Breathe in, Breathe Out x 2 )

Verse 3
I could learn a lot
From a stable thought
The medicated state of mind
Refined and got shot

Verse 4
The blood I give to you
Is ink for your lines
So write my story gently, please
On closed living room blinds

Chorus

Bridge
Come for me again
But if you do please eat me whole
Cause wandering these streets alone
Has worn out my soul

Verse 5
Believe in me
Because my eyes are new
Burn the wall between us
And let me love you

Chorus x 2

“Stardust.” – Lyrics

Lyrics, Vocals, Guitar, Composition – Devin Ott
Drums – Alex Bishop
Recorded & Produced – Devin Ott
Written – July 5th/ 2015
Released – August 7th/ 2016

Lyrics

Verse 1
Am I still dreaming?
Mind the manner of your reference
Am I still bleeding?
I guess I’m not one for severin’ ties

Verse 2
See me for what I am now
As a matter of fact
It doesn’t really matter anyhow
‘Cause I’m
So proud x 4

Chorus

I don’t feel a thing
Any more
I don’t feel a thing
Any more

Verse 3
Look at you
And the mess that you made
The stardust serenade
Betrayed my chemical enemy counterpart
And he counteracts
And projects all of his problems
On my weary heart
On my weary heart

Verse 4
And I don’t expect you to understand
Or hang around
I am a rubber band
Stretched between your hands
And a little money, never hurt nobody
Just a little honey, is it worth my body?

Chorus
I don’t feel a thing
Anymore
I don’t feel a thing
Anymore x 3

Outro
I don’t feel
So good
I don’t feel
So good
I don’t feel
So good
I don’t feel
So good

“Jupiter.” – Lyrics

“Jupiter.”

Vocals, Guitar, Composition – Devin Ott
Lyrics, Drums – Alex Bishop
Recorded & Produced – Devin Ott
Written – October 17th/ 2011
Released – August 7th/ 2016

Lyrics

Verse 1
It’s a far cry from cape canaveral but
She says it’s the most beautiful thing she’s ever seen
She’s terrified by the canyons
But she’s more excited than she’s ever been

Verse 2
She says she’s glad she found an application
Cause now she knows for sure
It’s definitely Jupiter we’re facing
And it’s so exciting just to watch her

Chorus
She doesn’t believe in gravity
Maybe physics just ain’t my calling
She doesn’t believe in gravity
Maybe that’s why I just keep falling
Looking at the moon x 4

Verse 3
On the beach she watched the lightening
And it lasts late into the night
“I can’t believe this” she says, “It’s frightening.”
Periodic deafening flashes of light

Chorus
She doesn’t believe in gravity
Maybe physics just ain’t my calling
She doesn’t believe in gravity
Maybe that’s why I just keep falling
Looking at the moon x 8
