Evolver Lyrics
  • Beyond the Gray Sky
    Music: T. Mahoney, Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    It is a gift I know
    A moment of bliss that we hold
    A firecracker flash of light then on
    To the next plane soul remain
    Come along if you dare
    It’s gonna be that you’re scared
    Lovely life, I thank you
    For the reason to see the pain through

    Light a candle for the dead
    The wick is burning returning what we have
    It’s who we are
    We’ll reach you if you’re beyond the furthest star

    Don’t give up the fight to stay alive and even if you have to
    Find the reason of another’s pain if they lose you
    If not for your self then those around who care like I do
    One day you’ll see the clear blue

    Beyond the Gray Sky
    Beyond the Gray Sky
    Beyond the Gray Sky

    Light a candle…
    The wick…
    It’s who we are…

    One day you’ll see the clear blue
    Beyond the Gray Sky
    Beyond the Gray Sky
    Beyond the Gray Sky

    I can’t believe you didn’t call
    What made you want to end it all
    Wasn’t there something I should have tried
    To help you see beyond the gray sky


    Crack the Code
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I want the words something you haven’t heard
    will I find them and will I have what it takes to say them
    in the world beside this one there are no lies and
    no suspicion, only dreams without end

    You gotta feel what I mean
    Look into my eyes and know
    I’m trying to come clean
    But I stumble every time
    And then the words they escape
    fail to take shape
    It’s all in the code now (come again)

    Feel what I mean
    Look into my eyes and know
    I’m trying to come clean
    But I stumble every time
    And then the words they escape
    fail to take shape
    It’s all in the code now

    Will you let me retract let me take it back
    Sometimes my words lack and my mind flies off the track
    What I’m trying to convey is miles from what I say
    And you slip away

    In life there are times
    when nothing will rhyme
    there are days I slip
    when I know I should climb
    breakin the vows I swore I’d never break
    a harsh word a white lie easy to mistake
    where have you been
    haven’t you noticed
    there’s no map that exists
    to point us out of this
    my heart was the target
    it found your arrow
    baby you know I want to be
    your straight and narrow

    I been trying to transmit a feeling
    I been hoping you receive what I’m revealing
    See the main thing is hang with me and relate

    As we communicate watch out
    Fenced in like a dog between houses
    Balled up by the trouble my mouth gets
    Wrapped up in the things that I don’t know
    don’t you know
    Hoping that you crack the code oh

    The first to crack the code
    (You may not think I’m ready to have your love again)
    oh oh
    (You may not think I’m ready)
    You are the first to crack my code

    I want the words
    something you haven’t heard
    will I find them and
    will I have what it takes to say them

    You gotta gotta feel what I mean
    Look into my eyes and know
    I’m trying to come clean
    But I stumble every time
    And then the words they escape
    fail to take shape
    It’s all in the code now

    Didn’t I know I’m wrong wrong wrong when you knew
    You didn’t have to give me so long long long to see through
    Not predictable what I will do but you know
    Cause you cracked the code

    Your body is a country
    that you know I’ll return to
    craving like a family heirloom
    that I am into
    no baby how could I follow
    everything you do
    just remember when we touch
    I feel so renewed

    The first to understand me that would be you
    It can’t work if we can’t be open and true
    The best thing to happen to me let it be told
    That would be the moment that you cracked my code oh oh

    The first to crack the code
    You may not think I’m ready to have your love again
    You may not think I’m ready
    You are the first to crack my code


    Creatures (For A While)
    Music: N. Hexum, T. Mahoney; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    My name is volatile
    I’ve been this way a long while
    I’d surely like to rest
    But the energy gets the best of me
    It’s been a wild ride
    I wouldn’t change a minute
    I can’t slow down inside
    Guess that’s why I live it

    The years of mischief
    Followed by weeks of thrift
    I land on earth’s hard face
    No legs could keep that pace
    And through the rest I sift

    Is there ever a time
    When the state of sleeping willingly leaves my mind

    Highly frustrated wanna feel elated
    Come monday morn you feel checkmated
    You can be uncool and become the rule
    Exceptions were made to drown

    I’m not used to it, you’d think I’d be by now
    The ins the outs the ups and the downs

    I wanna make a mess
    I wanna blow off stress
    I wanna stoke the fire
    Just creatures for a while
    I wanna make a mess
    I wanna blow off stress
    I wanna stoke the fire
    Just creatures, Just creatures
    It comes and goes and comes and goes
    Sometimes I go a little crazy
    Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do

    I know what you we’re gonna say
    But were afraid to cause dismay
    You’re lyrics switched around
    The mixture watered down
    And now a pointless display

    It’s something one won’t understand
    Unless there in it with me hand and hand

    Don’t buy the fear don’t buy that my dear
    The things you love you must keep near and
    Carry on and you won’t feel withdrawn
    Even if you’re coming down

    Sometimes it’s wearable sometimes is bearable
    I careen towards balance til’ the glass is full

    I wanna make a mess
    I wanna blow off stress
    I wanna stoke the fire
    Just creatures for a while
    I wanna make a mess
    I wanna blow off stress
    I wanna stoke the fire
    Just creatures, just creatures
    It comes and goes and comes and goes

    Sometimes
    Sometimes I get a little out there
    Sometimes I go off
    Sometimes just like you

    I go a little crazy
    Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do
    Sometimes I go a little crazy
    Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do


    Don’t Dwell
    Music: N. Hexum, A. Wills; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    Every time I get near your field of gravity
    You look so sad to me tell how could that be?
    Ah she said things I obsess
    I would never confess

    Ah I told her don’t dwell
    That will leave you in hell
    Sometimes things that you’re scorned for
    You should be adored for
    But like I told her don’t dwell

    I know my love that I look dilapidated
    But are you glad I made it
    Can you tell me that much
    Ah Why are you surprised
    I don’t take my advice

    Ah she told me don’t dwell
    That will leave you in hell
    Sometimes I need reminding
    Regret is so blinding
    But like I told me don’t dwell

    Everything is a choice
    Go ahead raise your voice
    Might as well forgive your self
    That means more than someone else
    Set you free break the shell
    To your demons farewell
    (Ooh na na na na) I tell ya don’t dwell


    Give Me a Call
    Music: N. Hexum, C. Sexton; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Ooh you draw such pictures in my head
    Ooh with so few words I know what you said
    Until the time comes
    To carry the one
    Make that dream real
    And be sure it stays done
    So let that thought
    Bloom in your mind
    A vision that’s caught
    Never left behind

    You should just give me a call
    You should just give me a call

    I think about you much more than I should
    Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call

    Sunset and my love left me
    winter and I’m so far
    In darkness will it lead me
    where the meanings are
    I miss and think of you often
    no flowers I forgot them
    the weather’s the same
    nothing happens
    no love’s a hard lesson

    patience and years will refashion
    what hours will undo
    and circles not yet quite circles
    somehow close true

    I keep on hearing the things that you said
    I keep on feeling you go straight to my head
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call

    I call you up but you won’t talk to me
    No space for words there’s just no room
    I drift away but you pull me in
    I’m the ocean you’re the moon

    Ooh how do I know if it’s just me
    Sometimes I think that it must be
    You gotta know you can trust me

    I think about you much more than I should
    Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call


    Other Side of Things
    Music: C. Sexton; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Houston we have a problem
    all this TV has made us dumb
    anxious is what we’ve become
    too much prozac in our systems
    it’s our mental condition
    it’s our mental condition
    one thing lacks is education
    institutions fuck with our

    Emotions are elastic
    they stretch out and back
    stretch out and back
    sometimes they just snap
    they don’t go back
    they never go back

    What if it were true
    that you weren’t so blue
    and you felt like you
    could just do anything
    but we’re facing the sunset
    and for a moment it
    looks like it’s rising
    and we are on the other side of things

    There’s no procrastination maybe I should do it get to it straight
    I see people wasting time with so much pointless debate
    I can’t wait for the over analytical politically correct
    Upset by threats to the national mind set
    I bet we’d let reverse psychology mob mentality over our ecology
    A college we could learn but we usually we burn and then we waste it
    Taste it time and time again it’s time to take your medicine

    Emotions are elastic
    they stretch out and back
    stretch out and back
    sometimes they just snap
    they don’t go back
    they never go back

    What if it were true
    that you weren’t so blue
    and you felt like you
    could just do anything
    but we’re facing the sunset
    and for a moment it
    looks like it’s rising
    and we are on the other side of things

    What if it were true
    that you weren’t so blue
    and you felt like you
    could just do anything
    but we’re facing the sunset
    and for a moment it
    looks like it’s rising
    and we are on the other side of things
    side of things


    Reconsider Everything
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    How many times will they do the same thing?
    How did they get programmed to, your following?
    Everyone’s locked up in their suffering
    The only way you can tell is reconsider everything

    What if the truth is that there is no truth
    The only thing I can prove is there is no proof
    Don’t be so sure that your source is correct
    People believed it before, before they had checked

    How many times can they tell you
    Til you just give them their way
    How many times can sell you
    Til you let them have their say
    Every time you will ignore your

    Heart it will come back twice more
    Never deny your own instinct
    Reconsider Everything

    Everybody want something they control
    Some just want grass some they want gold
    Either way does it feel good or feel low
    Taking you down not fast but real slow

    Rebellion done for it’s own sake
    Does not a true free thinker make
    To go against for it’s own sake
    You’re still controlled by the course that the other man takes

    Reconsider everything, reconsider everything
    Reconsider everything, reconsider everything
    Reconsider everything, reconsider everything
    Reconsider everything


    Same Mistake Twice
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    It’s one thing to make the
    Same mistake twice
    Another thing to make it
    All of your life
    It’s one thing to make the
    Same mistake twice
    Another thing to make it
    All of your life

    The more you strengthen your denial
    The more you turn to your desire
    Na na na na
    Appetite fight you’ll beat it yet
    Na na na na
    By hook or by crook on that I would bet
    Just hang on in there

    It’s one thing to make the
    Same mistake twice
    Another thing to make it
    All of your life

    Lost in a barrel of wine and whining
    Snared in a trap of your own designing
    Don’t be so sure
    Nobody knows when it will end
    Don’t be so sure
    Wouldn’t I speak up if I’m a true friend
    Just hang on in there

    It’s one thing to make the
    Same mistake twice
    Another thing to make it
    All of your
    Life, your life

    Another detail just goes by
    Fallen into the abyss that has become your life

    It’s one thing to make the
    Same mistake twice
    Another thing to make it
    All of your life
    All of your life


    Seems Uncertain
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    It seems uncertain
    I wish it was forgone
    To know the version
    That made life go wrong

    Wish I had a clue
    What rearranged our molecules
    Mostly wondering
    It seems uncertain

    In times of trouble
    Everyone joins a team
    No one waves a flag
    For all human beings

    No one’s excited
    Unless they are divided
    Someone’s going to have to give in
    It seems uncertain

    I’d like to be
    One of the faithful millions
    But what I see
    Is an excuse for the killing

    Your denomination
    Should be a private thing
    How about a spirit
    For all human beings

    How could something well guided
    Turn out to be divisive
    Mostly wondering
    It seems uncertain


    Sometimes Jacks Rule the Realm
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    Sometimes jacks rule the realm
    Can’t you tell
    The swimmers drown
    Without a sound
    A chalkboard scratching sound
    Could craze the town
    An emperor’s clothes
    Never be exposed

    I took it as a compliment
    Regardless what they meant
    It could have been innocent
    Spent, so spent
    Railing against undeserved

    Dangling precipitants
    Raining down idiots
    Always flapping in the
    Flapping in the wind

    I took it as a compliment
    No matter what they meant
    Could have been belligerent
    Could have been half percent
    Could have been wanting
    Afraid to have been caught promising
    Ended up taunting me

    I can’t change that
    I can’t change
    I can’t change that
    I can’t change

    I’m watching you
    Not sure what’s true
    Life can be so cruel
    There’s nothing you can do
    But it fades…
    Only to return
    I feel your eyes burn
    I really am concerned

    Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
    Sometimes jealousy will dwell
    You can’t begin to dispel
    When you can not even tell

    What makes me act the way I do
    And why am I asking you
    What makes me act the way I do
    And why am I asking you
    What makes me act the way I do
    And why am I asking you

    Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
    Sometimes jealousy will dwell
    You can’t begin to dispel
    When you can not even tell
    Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
    Sometimes jealousy will dwell
    You can’t begin to dispel
    When you can not even tell


    Still Dreaming
    Music: C. Sexton; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    No I’ll not renounce my views do what others do
    I’d rather drink the hemlock than be like you, to my soul untrue
    It never gets easier so quit tryin pleasing her
    Everything is a choice so let me hear your voice

    Born in October night
    feeling was out a sight
    skin I’m in now and then
    moves like a meteorite
    noise in our culture
    is built in our nature
    another era will decode
    as we head toward rapture
    suppose we’re all gifted
    suppose that the mist is
    a metaphor for change
    suppose the veil will be lifted
    sacrament that I hold
    close and I feel noble
    solar marigolds light the souls
    return from that other world

    Sometimes when I’m awake
    I can’t tell if I’m still dreaming
    There’s so much here at stake
    When every moment is just fleeting
    Sometimes when I’m awake
    I can’t if I’m still dreaming

    It never gets easier so quit tryin pleasing her
    Everything is a choice so let me hear your voice

    rip up the evening post
    kill parasitic hosts
    we can shoulder all the karma
    that came with Los Alamos
    return the sky bottle blue
    return that forgotten hue
    a looking glass world
    seeing into and through you
    soul and body are my twins
    the latter will give in
    when the former views the ocean
    as not too cold to get in
    to martian life forms
    these waters are real warm
    but beware we can change the weather
    and create a snowstorm

    Sometimes when I’m awake
    I can’t tell if I’m still dreaming
    There’s so much here at stake
    When every moment is just fleeting
    Sometimes when I’m awake
    I can’t tell if I’m still dreaming

    No I’ll not renounce my views do what others do
    I’d rather drink the hemlock than be like you, to my soul untrue
    It never gets easier so quit tryin pleasing her
    Everything is a choice so let me hear your voice


    Time is Precious
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    Watching the ice melt between us
    Just faster than grass grows
    It’s not the best that we’ve seen us
    But nothing else I’d have chose
    Reminds me of a time
    When anything could have come
    Anything could have happened
    What a fantastic feeling

    Time is precious as you say it is
    I wanna know that we didn’t miss
    It goes by quickly you’ll soon find out
    I won’t go down
    Time is precious as you say it is
    I wanna know that we didn’t miss
    It goes by quickly you’ll soon find out

    When you fight to resist, emotion with a fist
    An irresistible force will always prevail
    The fortress goes crumbling down around you where you stand
    What was once strong mortar is now a pile of sand

    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now
    I won’t go down
    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now

    From reckless to recluse and sometimes back again
    Left wondering what’s the use of a life of mischief spent
    Makes cool the desert sun, the piece of mind that you gave me
    Absolve me for things I’ve done, only that can save me

    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now
    I won’t go down
    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful
    now


    What Do You Do
    Music: ; Lyrics

    What do you do, I ask you
    When they’re after you, I tell you
    You’re going to go it alone
    You know that you’ll have to leave home

    You had a slick operation
    Til she was taken to the station
    They grilled her on where she scored
    She broke down out your name poured
    Down the highway you soared
    na na na, na na na

    What do you do, I ask you
    When they’re after you, I tell you
    You’re going to go it alone
    You know that you’ll have to leave home

    Two thousand miles to the sea
    A new life with nobody
    Stranger’s faces everywhere
    Medicating your despair
    Feeling that no one cares
    na na na, na na na

    Sometimes plans go as planned
    And you beat the odds that they’ll get you
    It’s a miserable life in demand
    A paranoia you have to get used to
    But they got better things
    To do than to come and look for you
    But then again maybe not
    It’ll drive you crazy

    Now it’s been about a year
    You’d return but for the fear
    Sometimes people get away
    Still it haunts you to this day
    The dealer that got away
    na na na, na na na
