Null Paradox "Gertrude & Grace"

Null Paradox Gertrude & Grace

 

1 Before

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
I slip through the night
Counting again is so right
Press her keys down despite
Her heart rushes in fright

When I was so small
Father had all
We’d be together
But the future looks like never

(chorus)
Before we reach the end
Will you shred or mend
Help finding us two

Before we reach the end
Will you reach the rend
Confiding with letter
No better

Words slip through the night
I look to see but have no sight
Tap to imprint my might
Torn away by your slight

I notice me some days
Bending to meet your ways
Can’t we just stay today
I’ll work, you play

(chorus)

Before your end
I’ll stop and tend
Cause you need to mend
No reason to pretend

(chorus)

 

2  Valentine’s Day

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
I remember when, we used to live the simple life
Now you’re over it, and taking your sweet time
You’re sleeping again, in your mind’s eye
Cause the Englishman, said Valentine had it right
Now you’re over it, and taking your sweet time

(chorus)

Here it is, Valentine’s day
Here it is, Valentine’s day

Here it is, Valentine’s day
Leave now, nothing to say
Here on this, Valentine’s day
Valentine’s day

(chorus)

Here it is, Valentine’s day
So close, nothing to say
Here on this, Valentine’s day
Leave now, Valentine’s day
Valentine’s day

 

3  Small

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
I want to shake you, love of my life
Uncomplicate you, that part is right
Trying to make you, into what’s nice
Breakdown and hate you, work of my life

I want to teach you, growth of your life
Complexifications, causing you strife
Running wont complete you, the works not right
The simplest things, who’s wrong who’s right

(chorus)

How can anyone save me, when I can’t even save myself

I want to hate you, the dirt’s so nice
Unsophisticate you, just roll the dice
Trying to change you, with no advice
Breakdown and shape you, work of your life

(chorus)

I want to hate you, sunshine’s gold light
Unsophisticate you, earth’s dark delight
Trying to change you, sunshine’s gold light
Break down and shape you

(chorus)

 

4  Black & White

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Beyond the first pass, quarter through the day
You’ll see the rent, in the earth’s clay
Feels so ancient here
Their experience
Fills my ears, our world is revealed

(chorus)

Is it really so much safer here, when it’s black and white
From a symbolic right, to a literal site

Talking in tongues, we cannot taste
Time is peppered, with thoughts embraced
Antiquated experience
Change is difficult
Their dreaded fear, it’s so clear

(chorus)

Is it really so much better here, when it’s black and white
From a figurative right, to a literal site

Why is this a mystery to me, even when my mind’s at ease
Can I still forsake this dream, and welcome the adventure and break free

(chorus)

Is it really so much safer here, when it’s black and white
Is it really so much better here, when it’s black and white

 

5  My Sweet Hell

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Once there had been a time
When all was well
Is it time to wait
The choice is hell
My sweet hell

The pretense of our fate
Relies on, their steady state
Affliction, of those who hate
The Crys say “It’s getting late”

(chorus)

Hey there, nice one
I’ll prepare you run
Hey there, nice one
I’ll work while you have fun

Organization calms Adel’s face
Determination, speeds Apple’s gait

(chorus)

Why don’t you see, you work so pointlessly
Why don’t you see, madness comes for thee

(chorus)

 

6  The Ministry

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
(chorus)
Our time is slowing in the dead of night
The crowd grows restless now to win this fight
Until our Ministry can get it right
We’ll just keep fighting ’til we see the light

I am duty bound
A stranger, a stranger so it sounds
We tend the operation
And neglect our rounds
Helping with the minutiae
Gets them through the day
Where is the big picture
And are we in the way

(chorus)

Opposition to the plan
Will no one make a stand
Contemplate this heresy
Grasping change may set you free

One by one the fear sets in
Thinking of their win
Humanity, a declining art
Or just the voice of a dying lark

(chorus)

 

7  Freedom

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Freedom, no time to waste
The sunshine, upon her face
Oh feeling, first time to stray
The stares, looks and turns away, nowhere

(chorus)

There was a moment, a moment in time
An age when everything was mine
Once forgotten they had their chance
Once forgotten in an instant’s glance

Speeding, rushing through the air
The sunshine upon her hair
It’s easy to move away
Complexity seems at bay
Seems at bay

(chorus)

(ending chorus)
There was a moment, a moment in time
An age when everything was mine
Once forgotten they had their chance
Once forgotten in an instant’s glance
Searching, waiting, for big news
Staying here, seemed like a ruse

 

8  The Cell

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Hush, don’t make a sound
Before the glimmer begins to move around
Hush, don’t move an inch
’cause the glimmer’s about to switch

Sleeping, the only way
Damp murkiness surrounds, with nothing to say
Crying, the only way
Curling up to darkness, awaiting another day
Hiding, the only way
From my friend’s lashings, but having to stay

(chorus)

Red glimmer, shine down on thee
Up here, you seem so free
Red glimmer, comes to call
Down there, get ready to fall

Oh let me sell this agonizing sign
Past trepidation gave me no sense of time
I lay with my head and my smoldering gaze
Grace stopped living in so many ways

(chorus)

It’s getting late
There’s no time to wait
Yea, let me be
Time is a limit, for we
It’s getting late
It’s getting late

 

9  Ord Festival

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Ten thousand feel and sway
Unaware, could be the day
You, no longer sleep my babe
Old tricks, wont make you safe

(chorus)

Time is slowing and I’ll tell you why
Apple and Adel continue to fly
Space is circling and I’ll tell you why
Apple and Adel screech and cry

Projections, don’t see ahead
Living here, our fear will end

(chorus)

Hope, rain down on me
I’ve given all, as far as I see

Space is circling and I’ll tell you why
Apple and Adel sweep the sky

(chorus)

 

10  Orange & Purple Paradox

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
Given one time of life for thee
Who or what, it’s dreadfully
Given one time of life for me
Who or what, it seems so free
The question once face become so clear
While the answer always, she kindles fear

I’m running away
When my other choice is to stay
When the rain comes and clears the way
The direction disintegrates

(chorus)

Love on the run, choose orange for fun
Keep destiny at bay, purple’s the way

I have too many choices and too much to lose
What the spiders need, I can’t give them
Leaving my family, my soul just needs to run
Too many directions, but onward for fun

(chorus)

Given one time of life for thee
Who or what, it seems so free
Given one time of life for me
Who or what, it makes me scream

(chorus)

 

11  Glass Desert

Music and lyrics by Tom Libertiny

Buy
A spider’s dreaded feeling
Crawling through the dank waste
Breath burns out of me
Without a slack in my haste

I feel I’m going insane, while the world smiles by
Words keep lingering, she dies, she dies

I am losing myself in this squandered place
While your delicate murmurings, conjure up our fate
I see the selection, inbred in this wild state
Orange or purple, she dies, she dies

(chorus)

Running through the glass desert, while you hear my mind talk
Seeing my reflection, in the mirror of your thoughts
Screaming to the mystery, of your eight-legged stalk
Still wishing you’re with me, it’s only fair, it’s only fair

I have turned wild, my child, from that serene look on your face
The mirage of your existence and all you waste
Black and white connection, I’m running to our place
Tales of their premonition, she dies, she dies

(chorus)
