You always said blood was thicker than water
Well I believed you until you chose him
Now I’m out to get my revenge
Not on you, but on your man
It’s time to see his love killin’ you
Like a bird without wings
You can’t soar until your free
Like a prayer without words
You don’t know you’re hurt
Standing on the edge of life
You better learn to fly
Like a bird without wings
Its plain to see you’ve lost your religion
You’ve given your soul just to please him
You talk over me, no matter what I say
Should I tell you the truth or let you have your way?
He’s bringing out all the demons in you
Its funny the way the desolate road
Takes a turn to the hell you didn’t know it would lead

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
