Compound Fracture

Album: The Waterfall (2015)
  • Compound fracture gonna ring the gong
    And sound a warning of what's to come
    If we ain't careful as to where we step
    Paradise calling or untimely death

    Compound fracture gotta set the bone
    Wrap it up let it heal on it's own
    Don't walk on it, give it time to rest

    There's no evil, there's no good
    Only people doing as they should
    There is life in love and sound
    Get as much as you can keep around
    Before they put you into the ground

    For who knows how long? (paradise calling)
    How long? (paradise calling)

    I know you're young, that's the time to learn
    If we're too soft on you, you will get burned
    Fill your skull with what you want

    There's no evil, there's no good
    Only people doing as they should
    Or as they shouldn't in the light of day
    God and the devil were made up anyway
    But their meaning's so real and so plain
    There is life in love and sound
    Get as much as you can keep around
    Before they put you into the ground

    For who knows how long? (paradise calling)
    How long? (paradise calling)

    For who knows how long? (paradise calling)
    How long? (paradise calling)

    'Til the next go round
    'Til the next go round

    Compound fracture gonna ring the gong
    And sound a warning of what's to come
    If we ain't careful as to where we step
    Paradise calling or untimely death Writer/s: James Edward Olliges Jr.
