What if you had to choose between only bad choices, which would you choose?
The one less worse of the god forsaken choices in front of you
Or would you inflict the same pain that's been dealt to you by someone close
Only for it to create suffering in it's wake you know all too well
The no man's land of pain you just can't let go of no matter what
You've tried to push it aside, stuck right here, quite the misery guts
Who's thrown in the towel time and time again when faced with what you can't face
A past filled with deep regrets, time erased without a trace
So you make the choice to walk the safe, comfortable path keeping you stuck
Like a silent voice choked by the cold, miserable grip of the same rut

I've been to the bottom of rock bottom
only to find it's got a new bottom
becomes your new lot when your luck's rotten
thirteen splintered pieces falling
from face broken mirror's calling
out for me to fucking listen
teaching me my greatest lesson
embrace the new count my blessings

possibilities abound
in each moment yet to come
things yet to see to be found
keep keeping on don't you run
this time they won't steal my crown
no more gloating time has come
to grind snakes deep in the ground
their time well and truly come

I've been dragged deep into puddles of mud
only to come out tougher than the rest
soul got sold and heart's been under attack
though it still beats it's been put to the test
a heart that hurts is a heart that still works
navigating through so much injustice
not retreating to all dark places worse
incarceration through unjust sentence

deafening siren sounds
indicate time for muster
unhinged heads back in the ground
before the screws can bust ya
for trying to make them frown
poison spreading like cancer
in cells where men are space bound
freedom of mind the answer

My broken soul's not up for sale
No matter what they offer me
But the pieces you just might find
In the places I used to hang

My dying breath expelled in vain
If I let my haters prevail
I'm not leaving before my time
Lowlifes would have to kill me first 

Tick tock tick tock
Karma spares none
One two time bomb
There's no escape

When life becomes a pantomime
For stalkers to manipulate
Ultra violence seems a good choice
My voice removed by violent force

Some would say I'm losing my mind
But I lost the plot long ago
Never to come back from the pain
Of living in this sick sad world

Tick tock tick tock
Fun in the sun
One two mind fucked
Walking time bomb

Hanging on by a thread
To this life so tragic
Really I should be dead
Felled by low down tactics
Drown away all pain
Killing every faucet
That drips out acid rain
Euphoria like magic
This paranoia fame
Makes me want to gank shit
Which bad choice is to blame
Let's take another hit

Actions spoken wrong reaction
Everybody feeling sorry
Fashion victim's lack of action
Everybody has a story

Write yet another cliché
Formulaic structure
Another wasted day
Do me a fucking favour
Say shit straight to my face
I thought myself a saviour
A fool's chivalrous race
Leaving a bitter taste
Just pull the coward's knife
Out of the small of my back
People may wonder why
Such a destructive path

Actions pending lame reaction
Every real crim hates weak snitches
Legal shafting lies in action
Every cowboy's sad life story

Who will be there to save me
When I'm consumed by rage
Come here and watch me bleed
Inside an inhumane cage
Where inmates smoke ox and dream
About that wonderful day
They are once again free
Can't wipe the smile off the face
Of a subhuman condemned
To repeat the same mistakes
Over and over again
Left with nothing but much hate

Actions taken chain reaction
Just say the word karma's a bitch
Beasts awoken truth through action
Every jail bird has a story

i went to the edge of a perilous ledge 

then hedged all my bets on unpaid debts

all of my regrets unresolved yet

in once incensed breath she wished me dead

explosive anger ever present danger

lyrical wanker doing no real favours

those words they sank her crazy cowboy ranger

criminal gangster various jaded flavours

greedy fly banker money abject failure 

model prisoner behind bars in hakea

but there are no bars except where you are

locked down in concrete accepting defeat

hustler superstars stealing fast flash cars 

don't bring down more heat than we really need

so doomed from the start we fell worlds apart

each day on repeat like a broken record

we know who we are with each day in hell

went all the way back to see where the trace leads

Got not reason to be happy
Open season for the big hunt
Now I'm bleeding on the footpath
Left here seething at the damage
Plain survival in the jungle
New revival of deep cruelty
Peace is vital for the broken
Find the rights holes for those loose screws
Keeping turning until they fit tight
And you might just see me smile again

 all the hours now wasted

empty black holes tasted

didn't think I'd make it

even though I just take it

too much for one to fake

all surrounding walls shake

when I fall much further

from gravity's centre

where things don't get better

so I wrote this letter 

to make my feelings clear

as the passing of years

put aside all my fears

to bring you this fresh news

didn't want to leave you

hanging without a clue

as to what you should do

about the history

between the two of us

love still a mystery

I can't seem to work out

you are still my Juliet

on fire my heart you set

that's why I get so upset

every time I think of you

all the things that might have been

between the two of us that

never had a chance to be

oh Juliet come back to me

destroy the holy temple

nothing quite so gentle

like flooded sea vessels

caught in a losing battle

where one meets one's maker

who's power could break us

there's so much at stake here

not just words and fake tears

from movers and shakers

who's motives should wake us

to such tragic failures

like karma strikes traitors

no escape from it's grip

we all did what we did

when pressure blew our lids

and we closed our eye lids

to the truth before us

now settled in the dust

when we did what we did

we were only just kids

you are still my Juliet

on fire my heart you set

that's why I get so upset

every time I think of you

all the things that might have been

between the two of us that

never had a chance to be

oh Juliet come back to me

love is more than just a

four letter word for us

to fit a person to

it's what we choose to do

I just can't understand 

why you chose what you chose

into harm's way you ran

the emperor wears no clothes

twas all part of God's plan 

to divide and conquer

partially driven by

envy of yours truly

love is shown through actions

which speak louder than words

it's deeper than the ocean

the way it unfolds: absurd

one things still remains true

after all is said and done

strong is my love for you

don't you dare choose to run

you are still my Juliet

on fire my heart you set

that's why I get so upset

every time I think of you

all the things that might have been

between the two of us that

never had a chance to be

oh Juliet come back to me
