Wasted and wounded i travel this road Squeezing my mind where the hell i should go I guess i'm lost I must have wandered off the map I've searched for the woods but i just found one tree I sat down there to see what would come on to me Well nothing came Just some leaves on my lap Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason to go I went to a friend to dig up my thoughts She said: "i don't know what you want but this leads to nowhere I can see you're lost You must have wandered off the map You should go back to where you came from And see if you can pick up your trail there It'll take some costs But we'll fill up that gap" Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason to go Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason Oh give me one damn good reason to go Still waisted but stronger i travel this road Thanks to some friends that i've lost there Just a touch of frost And they all drop like flies Just a touch of frost And they all drop like flies Just a touch of frost Martin van de Vrugt 6/7-4-02

You can run for miles in all directions You can jump so high before you fall You can dig in deep to seek protection But in the end there will always be a wall On other sides the grass is always greener That's the sickening truth of it all Freedom and space will blind your sight with eager And in the end there will always be that wall in the end there will always be that wall 'Till here and not one step further 'Till here You will never cross that line 'Till here You won't live to see the wonder 'Till here It's all the same just inside out Face it! we're all trapped in our own boundaries Seems we'll never manage to get out Those who try mostly drown in bad luck stories And just a few emerge above the crowds just a few emerge above the crowds You can run for miles in all directions You can jump so high before you fall You can dig in deep to seek protection But in the end you will crash into the wall in the end you will crash into the wall in the end you will crash into the wall Martin van de Vrugt 9-6-03

Like a freighttrain you came rollin' in my heart I don't know what to do with this kind 'a' violence Something snapped and now everything is blur Another age, another day, another part ? Never will you now what you gave me Nothing comes close to your appearence Evermore i will carry thy in my heart Listening to the wind blow thru the ropes In deep dark nights and slowly thru the days Sunlight burned your body in my soul As the fire of time was burning up my hope Nothing came close to what i sensed Never did i feel what i felt Evermore i will carry thy in my heart Love is just a piece of perfect time I know that and i try not to forget Somehow i will heal this broken heart As time will pass things will tune and rhyme No i won't forget the sparkling in your eyes No i won't forget the music in your voice Evermore i will carry thy in my heart Evermore i will carry thy in my heart Martin van de Vrugt 18-08-02

Never been more happy Never been more pleased Than sailin' the rough seas With you so close Now i'm sorry For bringin' it up again I could be a happy man But i can't have you here I just can't have you here Still i'm drownin' in your eyes Sinkin' deep in your voice It's not much of a choice But i'll sail back to you Now baby i'm sorry For callin' you this way I was sifting thru the mail As i found yours today Again i'm sorry For bringin' it all up again I am such a happy man But i can't have you here I just can't have you here Oh i can't have you here Still i'm drownin' in your eyes Sinkin' deep in your voice It's not much of a choice But i'll sail back to you Sail back to you In my mind i'll Sail back to you Sail back to you Sail back to you Martin van de Vrugt 19-2-03

It's a Waste 04:45
It's a waste of lies it's a waste of truth It's a waste of time it's a waste of youth It's a waste It's a waste of warmth a waste of compassion It's a waste of lust Fatal waste of attraction It's a waste It's a waste All i ever wanted was to be with you No no no nothing more than this plain and simple truth It's a waste of words it's a waste of thoughts It's a waste of tears Fuckin' waste of love It's a waste It's a waste It's a waste We desperately ran out of luck It's a waste I don't know how to pick things up Maybe i'm too dumb maybe i'm too blind Maybe i'm too deaf Angrily unkind Hell it's a waste It's a waste It's a waste We desperately ran out of luck It's a waste I don't know how to pick things up Maybe i'm too dumb maybe i'm too blind Maybe i'm too deaf Angrily unkind Hell it's a waste It's a waste Martin van de Vrugt 25-10-95

I'm still lookin' for signs and traces but i can't tell If it's just another time and space here or a livin' hell I thought about leavin' the other day There's no-one tryin' to live out here At least none with any sence Sometimes i feel quite lonely deep inside myself Travelin' thru emotional changes Knowin' very well what to give and what to sell and what to keep behind There's no-one tryin' to live out here At least none with any sence Leave me alone I don't want to be out here I'm tired of explaining what i will or will not hear I've got a free mind so free my body too There's no-one tryin' to live out here At least none with any sence Martin van de Vrugt 19-12-93

Another Fall 03:46
Like faces in the dark staring down on me Selffulfilling thoughts raising fear Like voices from the past ringin' thru my ear Memories once lost bringin' tears And i know it'll never be the same again And i feel i might have lost another friend Now another fall (See the sun fall down the sky) has chased away the heat And the leaves they fall (Bright reflections in your eyes) on my feet I try to raise my head stroll on empty streets After all that's said denied my needs And i know it'll never be the same again And i feel i might have lost another friend And i know it'll never be the same again And i feel i might have lost another friend And i know it'll never be the same again And i feel i might have lost another friend And i know it'll never be the same again And i feel i might have lost another friend And i know And i feel Martin van de Vrugt 31-10-95

Dreamin' 'bout the way things used to be Like these shows you can see on tv Search my mind for things i failed to see Holding on to what means something to me And nothing else seems to matter to me nothing else seems to matter Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays Ooh See me walk thru the heart of this old town Feelin' like there is no-one around Exept my steps i register no sound Only my feet seems to know where i'm bound And nothing else seems to matter to me nothing else seems to matter Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays Ooh And nothing else seems to matter Nothing can break the silence in my head I feel better now after all you've said Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays Ooh Dreamin' 'bout the way things used to be Like these shows you don't wanna see on your tv Search my mind for what means something to me Holding on holding on holding on Martin van de Vrugt 14-3-94

On my Way 04:34
See the night flow down this empty street Moon shines on the path that's guiding me Change my sweater 'cause it's changin' weather And it's getting better day by day It's getting better day by day And i'll be on my way I'll be on my way Look over my shoulder now i'm getting older And so much time just fades away See the light dim in western skies Bright purple colors in my eyes And it's getting better day by day It's getting better day by day And i'll be on my way I'll be on my way my way I'll be on my way I'll be on my way I'll be on my way Martin van de Vrugt 1/2/19-12-03

'Cause the rain won't stop this year i'll keep singin' songs with a tear and i find it hard to describe You should stay happy my child Keep on laughin' and cheer 'cause there's so much grief not so very far from here While we got food and we got drinks We got a house and pretty things We got a car and many roads to bring us truckloads to unload We got friends who give us love We got good memories to think of While they have nothing but fear and pain 'Cause the rain won't stop this year i'll keep singin' songs with a tear I find it very hard to describe Martin van de Vrugt 27-8-93

How much can a man take before he will crash? I feel like everyone tries to break all of me what has left No-one returns a smile No-one sais hello come with me for a while see how far we can go Last night before i went away i said i'd call it a day I didn't mean just for the moment I guess i ment for always And no-one returned a smile No-one said hello come with me for a while see how far we can go And now my mind is empty just like my pocket and my heart I feel like dyin' on the spot like i never should have started And no-one returns a smile No-one sais hello come with me for a while see how far we can go Martin van de Vrugt 2-6-94

Someday there'll be another moonlight That matches the one that hides inside my mind Shinin' blue thru the curtains I remember watching all night just to see the shadows move Something to lose Someday there'll be a better reason for the pain that hides deep inside my brain For the kid covering his ears tryin' not to hear the words fall down like rain Someday pain Someday the pain will find it's way out I don't know when or how or how i will react Maybe on a blue night behind curtains Maybe when i'm lyin' lost and lonely on my bed Someday ahead Oh Martin van de Vrugt 1-7-96
