Treasure Island

Chris Leermakers

(13/10/1974 / Melbourne, Australia)


Contemplating Life
And Retrospective Views
Help Me With The Past
To Help Find All The Clues
Looking From The Bottom Leaves Us Lying In The Rain
The Only Way Is Up
Yeah How Can I Refrain
Stretch Me All The Way
Away From The Black Edge
So Close To The Bottom
Yeah Just Like A True False Pledge
Do I Have A Choice
Yeah I Decide To Play
We Always Had A Choice
And It Works Out Best This Way:

We Are The Ones Who Will Face It All
Yeah We're The Ones Already In Our Own Stasis
We're The Ones With Real Faces
Yeah We're The Ones
Yeah Already Strengthened Our Bases
We Are The Ones Using Our True Voices
We're The Ones With Our Own Choices
Yeah Shout Our Own Choices Now
Use Them Now, Loud
Yeah Not Then
Forever, Shout
Yeah Never Lose Them Again
Yeah Shout
We're The Ones Who Don't Fake It
Yeah Even If We Don't Make It
We're The Ones, Always Facing It
We're The Ones Who Create It
Yeah Always Create It
So Now So Just Fly

Don't Plan To Make Believe
Leaving No Place To Hide
And Don't Plan To Deceive
To Reach Any Side
Choose Wisely This Time
Yeah You - Just Decide:

Oh, It's Good To see You
Yeah Haven't Seen You For So Long
Been Busy With Accomplishments
Yeah, Hope That I'm Not In The Wrong
You're Looking So Much Better
Such A Low Descent
You've Gone Through So Much Trauma
Yeah, What A Compliment

Each To Their Own
It Works Out Better This Way
Do We Have A Choice
Yeah So I'll Always Decide To Play:

Hey There, What You Doing?
For You Are Just Not Right
People Are Mysterious
Yeah They Don't Understand
The Places We've Gone To
The Customs, All Of Ours
Yeah The Customs Of Our Wild Land

So Superior Are You?
Out Of Your Mouth Comes The Law
So How Can I Therefore Contradict?
Yeah Contradict What I Saw
Yeah What We All Fucking Saw
We Are The Ones Using Our True Voices
We're The Ones Sticking To Our Own Choices
We're The Ones Who Don't Fake It
Yeah Even If We Don't Make It
We're The Ones, Always Facing It
We're The Ones Who Create It
Yeah So Never Debate It
So Now Just Fly

One Thing I Have Learned
And This I Have Learned Slowly:
Pay No Heed To Others
As A Lot Think They're Holy
Take Care Of Yourself First
And Get Back On Your Feet
You Have To Take A Step Back
Off This Seat
Yeah Off This Perceptual Seat
Your Potential Is Enormous
Don't Ask The Question Why
Just Go Ahead And Do It
Now And Loud...
The Sky Is Yours
So Fly...

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
