Deca
Gabriel Ratchet
[Intro: voice samples]
One by one the angels fell
God had sent a horrible plague of deaths
Why do you think that God would do a thing like that?
Deca presents a new world of sound

[Verse 1: Deca]
Back chasing dreams here we go again
Run 'em down with bloodhounds and dobermans
I'm at the mercy of the blowin' wind
It's all open ended like
Everything in life 'till your soul ascends
From madmartigen
To sad harlequin
To black hearted kin
Flashbacks, bar the chems
Cardinal sins hypodermics in the garbage bin
Marked men follow when the saints go marching in
Dreams crack then fade into memory
My Pops said that we share the same brain chemistry
That's where I got my appet**e for self destruction
I need balance I need help adjustin'
But one day I'll awake in a state of grace
Quit making the same mistake
Of abating the pains and aches
Maintain a creative space
Get loose with the papermate
I've been waitin' for day to break
The future is takin' shape

[Pre-Chorus: voice samples]
Remember that language is power
I will, I will. I'll remember that
Lone steppenwolf offer no apologies
Until their brains snap open

[Chorus: Deca & voice samples]
God said
We'd be in trouble if we ate that fruit
Nameless soldier
Tryna' to get over
No peace
Show teeth hold a grudge
Find another soul to judge
No peace only blood
Nameless soldier
Exile driven out
Sinner drifting on a cloud
Wild child in a crowd
No peace
No peace only blood
Don't sleep show me love
Only blood

[Verse 2: Deca]
I chased dragons now I'm chasin' the dream
They're both mythic
One's a ball and chain the other's the soul's image
Restrained manacled child, so afraid
Like somebody's tryin' to tear the wings out of my shoulder blades
The whole wide world's obsessed with the Faust legend
You gotta go through hell to get to heaven
Me I know the beast well
He's hiding in the flowers and the details
Enjoys long walks on the beach and collectin' seashells
Recording live from the belly of the beached whale
East of Eden where the fallen angels and the meek dwell
Where love's the color of blood and pure devotion
It cascades pools on the ground and forms an ocean
Deca the bard, the penman, deadpan
Solitary dreamer, watch the vision expand
There's no time for dogma an genuflection
The future is takin' shape
Lessons in free expression
[Pre-Chorus: voice samples]
Remember that language is power
I will, I will. I'll remember that
Where do we come from, who are we
And where are we going
Eternal questions never answered

[Chorus: Deca & voice samples]
God said
We'd be in trouble if we ate that fruit
Nameless soldier
Tryna' to get over
No peace
Show teeth hold a grudge
Find another soul to judge
No peace only blood
Nameless soldier
Exile driven out
Sinner drifting on a cloud
Wild child in a crowd
No peace
No peace only blood
Don't sleep show me love
Only blood
