BIT BY BIT

My sickness is a mission

it ain’t no trip for fools

Just when you think you know it

it changes all the rules

 

And bit by bit it’s calling

It wants to take me down

 

My sickness is a monster 

there ain’t no time to cry

You fight it every moment

You fight it or you die

 

My sickness is a dancer

it spins me round and round

My sickness is a cancer

it does not make a sound

 

But bit by bit it’s calling

It wants to take me down

Bit by bit I’m falling

It wants to take me 

back to danger town 

 

Oh bit by bit it’s calling

It wants to take me down

Bit by bit I’m falling

It wants to take me  

back to danger town 

 

 

ETHERIUM DELIRIUM

Words/Music by Craig Spector

It’s like a dream

you can’t wake up from

in an ocean full of stars

And a mind lost in motion

in a body full of scars

And I can’t rest and I can’t sleep

I lay me down my soul to keep.

 

Ooooh will I ever know?

Ooooh some kind of mystery

It’s quite the show

Oooooh do I have to go?

Ahhhhh don’t wanna hear

Don’t need to know.

 

Oooooh in a time and place

that’s not too far, and full of grace.

Oooooh in that distant place

I call your name, I see your face.

 

A little peace is hard to find.

Etherium delirium, it’s in my mind.

 

Ooooh will I ever know?

Ooooh some kind of mystery

It’s quite the show

Oooooh do I have to go?

Ahhhhh don’t wanna hear

Don’t need to know.

 

Oooooh in a time and place

that’s not too far, and full of grace.

Oooooh in that distant place

I call your name, I see your face.

 

 

HOSPITAL SONG 2018

I lay me down to sleep

Every day they take a little more

Just another on the trauma floor

I pray my soul to keep

every time I feel the needle bite

Try to get me through another night

I long to see your face

Hear your footsteps by the door

Oh baby just a little more

 

I am here

Holding on

 

You are so far away

Flying in as on angel’s wings

to take away another needle’s sting

We’ll see another day

Another page in the book we write

another chapter in this fight we fight

I live to see your face

So long as I know you’ll be there

Oh baby nothing I can’t bear

 

I’ll be here, holding on

I am here

Holding on

 

And everything I ever wanted 

is in your eyes

And everything we ever needed

will be there too

And everything we have to go through, 

we do what we gotta do

 

Oh darlin’ you are my love my all 

through the veil through the sorrow

I have you, you have me

We are all we ever need

the fear the pain will pass tomorrow

I’ll make it through this bitter night

To see you by the morning

by the morning’s light

 

You’ll be here before too long

I’ll be here, holding on

I am here, writing this hospital song

This hospital song

My hospital song

Hospital song

 

THE HEART OF IT ALL

Words/Music by Craig Spector

Take a little longer

take a little while

we think we got forever 

here on the lonely mile.

I count my blessings, every one

I count my curses, by the ton

My sins, they might seem clever

but they’ve really just begun.

 

Oh oh it’s the art of it all

Oh to go to the heart of it all.

 

So take another taste now

Take a little time

Careful not to waste it

That would be a crime.

I stare at the enigma

I wonder what it’s for

Our sins might last forever

But I say nevermore nevermore.

Nevermore.

 

Oh oh it’s the art of the fall

Oh oh to go the heart of it all

Oh oh it’s the art of it all

To go into the heart of it all.

 

A fire burns in the distance

Tides are turning deep inside

Just a little longer ’til we see the light.

Sparks fly up to heaven

in the darkest veil of night

Here for a moment

but oh so very bright.

 

Tell ya a little secret

Don’t let it get ya down

It’s just another way we do

back in danger town. 

 

So go to the heart of it all

Into the heart of it all.

 

NEVERMORE

You say the game is rigged and you just won’t play

Hate to break it to ya, we gotta do it all anyway

Ain’t no free ride outta danger town

Lemme tell ya something help it all go down

 

We are the sun we are the stars

We are the moon we are the scars

We are the sea we are the shore

We are the voice that cries out

nevermore nevermore.

 

So you’re worn down beat up and it never ends

you’re torn down used up there’s nothing left to spend

hanging off the ragged edge of that big black hole

break your body mess your mind but it cannot take your soul

 

(Hold on.  Just hold on.)

 

Lost in an eternity, grounded in desire

Show me how you burn for me

I’ll show you how love is the fire

Babe you know I tell you true

 

We are the sun we are the stars

We are the moon we are the scars

We are the sea we are the shore

We are the voice that cries out

nevermore nevermore.

SHINE ON

Words/Music by Craig Spector

When all is darkness

and all is night

When all is raging

at the fading of the light

When hope is hopeless

and luck runs thin

It’s time to reach inside

to find what lay within

 

Shine on

and come what may

Shine on

no matter what they say

 

When all is shuttered

and all is pain

No way to find the spark

or light it up again

When hope is guttered

and black as sin

It’s time to reach down

deeper than we’ve ever been

 

Shine on

though it might be dim

Shine on

And let it all begin

Shine on

Love is the flame

that beats the darkness back

to let us live again.

 

Shine on Shine on

it’s not too far 

Shine on Shine on

just like the morning star

 

When all is darkness

and all is doubt

It’s time to reach inside

And let it out let it out let it out

 

Shine on

Though it might be dim

Shine on

And let it all begin

Shine on

Our love’s the flame

that beats the darkness back

to let us live again.

 

Shine on

and come what may

Shine on

no matter what they say

Shine on

Our love’s the flame

that beats the darkness back

and lets us live again.

 

Shine on Shine on

Oh babe it won’t be long

 

When all is darkness

and all is gone

it’s time to reach outside

and greet the coming dawn

it’s time to reach outside

and greet the coming dawn

 

 

I FIGHT ON

Lemme tell ya something…

 

So many friends and heroes gone

so many memories of the fallen

Some went quick some went slow

some went so fast you’d barely know

Dino fought it long and hard 

He died alone on an LA floor

Davey Z had tons of friends

and an autographed guitar at the end

DD caught it in the gut, Christopher did too

David saw a blackstar rise 

and up up up he flew flew flew

 

I fight on, at least I try 

I fight on, got no time to wonder

why why why

 

It snuck up like a sonofabitch

and boom I was in the struggle

A sneak attack right in the back

and a world of hurt to juggle

Now I ain’t brave and I ain’t shrewd

Just a stubborn motherfucker with an attitude

I might be old and I walk funny

But I got heart and I’ll tell ya honey

 

I fight on, at least I try 

I fight on, got no time to wonder

why why why

 

Oh I wish I had more time to know ‘em

but we know that it ain’t how it flies

So get a grip, take the trip

I’ll see ya at that big gig in the sky

 

So many friends and heroes gone

And one day I’ll go too

But they were strong and they fought on

that’s all I can really ever do

 

So I fight on, at least I try 

I fight on, got no time to wonder

why why why

I fight on, ‘til the day I die 

I fight on, got no time to wonder

why why why

 

True is true

best you can’s all you can do

so I suck it up

try not to fuck it up

I’ll catch ya at that 

sound check in the sky

 

 

OUTPOSTS

Gimme a little shelter 

Gimme a little peace

Gimme a little something 

maybe feels like a release

Whispering our secrets

speaking in our code

Just another habit 

on the resurrection road.

 

Baby can you help me 

as I wear this heavy load?

Just another outpost 

on my resurrection 

resurrection road.

 

Maybe something I can feel

Maybe something I can hold

Maybe something soft and warm

when I feel so hard and cold.

Just a little kindness

Just a bit of rest

These are not the worst of times

But I’m hoping for the best.

 

Baby can you help me 

as I bear this heavy load?

Just another outpost 

on my resurrection 

resurrection road.

 

Baby can you tell me 

everything your heart can know?

Just another outpost 

on our resurrection 

resurrection road.

 

So many miles behind me

So many more to go

I turn the page 

and take the stage

at the great and secret show.

 

Baby can you help me 

as I bear this heavy load?

Just another outpost 

on my resurrection 

resurrection road.

 

Baby can you tell me 

everything your heart has known?

Just another outpost 

on our resurrection 

resurrection road.

 

Baby can you help me 

as I bear this heavy load?

Just another outpost 

on my resurrection 

resurrection road.

Just another outpost 

on my resurrection road.
