"The Rules are very clear
You'll die within a year
Of the day when we said
We loved each other
Pretty soon you'll be dead."

Track Name: Bad God
BAD GOD

((( Man # 1 )))

Bad God
He once was good
He gave us life and all He could
At some point I think that
We disappointed God

The Judgment Day has come
Retaliation for what we've done
He created the Universe
And then He destroyed the Sun

Darkness replaces light
Hot turns to cold
Eyes losing sight
I can't see all the vengeance
Bad God sends to me

I'm blind in agony
What does He send to me?
Hell would be warmer than
The planet I long to see

Earth! Earth!

Earth is a barren wasteland
Where nothing grows up from the ground
My eyes can't see the famine
But sometimes visions make a sound
The Book of Revelations
Could not prepare me for His Wrath
He took the Sun away from us
For falling off His Chosen Path

Bad God
He once was good
He gave us life and all He could
At some point I think that
We disappointed God

The Judgment Day has come
Retaliation for what we've done
He created the Universe
And then He destroyed the Sun

Awake to find that I can see
A new star formed when fast asleep
I think Good God has once returned
A Lesson taught for us to learn
The power of His Vengeful Wrath
To keep us on His Chosen Path
A new Sun shines that I can see
My God have I forsaken Thee?

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Damned To Hell
DAMNED TO HELL

((( Man # 1 )))

I've been damned to Hell
According to my priest
There is no hope for me
My soul goes to the Beast
My bitter blasphemy brought punishment
I didn't know that pain was Heaven sent

Only one thing makes me smile
I've known her for just a little while
But it's been long enough to know
It would be tough to let her go
Because she made me who I am

She's a lovely girl
To me she's everything
She says she loves me
Even though bad luck I bring
I choose to live an immoral life
I want a lover, not a wife

And now that I've been damned to Hell
I want one sick depraved farewell
I'll keep sinning while I can
I have temptations as a man
There's nothing more now
He can do to me

I spoke too soon
My love has fallen from the sky
Unstable ladder broke
My lovely lady died
God was appalled that I kept sinning
I've made Him mad since the beginning

There is no reason left to live
My heart was full of love to give
But I got swindled out of love
And I'm not welcome up above
If I've been damned to Hell I'll go
At least I'm welcome down below
I'll take a razor to my wrists
Right now I'd rather not exist
And so it's best to get this over with

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Cerberus
CERBERUS

((( Man # 1 )))

Three-headed dog, guard the gates
Don't seal my fate with multiple jaws
God wouldn't know what to do
If He knew you were in control

Why must you hurt me?
The flames are high
I'm gonna die for all eternity
Please let me through without a fight
A triple bite from three heads of you

Cerberus
I know you want to see me burn below
But Satan certainly has more
Compassion than you show
Why must you attack me?
I'm already damned enough
There's two long hard deep incisions
Through the skin below my cuffs

Hello Cerberus

In Hell
Oh stop biting me, Satan's guard
My arms are scarred already, let me be
Sharp strong shooting pains
With vicious barks
You've made your marks
Upon pre-severed veins

Cerberus
Your malice has just hidden my demise
Your courtesy was well concealed
Behind six evil eyes
I now know that you damaged me
To hide my sins away
When Satan found no evidence
He sent me back your way

Cerberus
You've helped me find
My way through Heaven's door
I'm forever in your debt
You'll be my friend forever more
But now I have to leave you
I'm expected up above
If I ever pass this way again
Devour me with love

Thank you Cerberus

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Purgatory Mountain
PURGATORY MOUNTAIN

((( Man # 1 )))

Caught red-handed by Saint Peter
Tried to deny it
But Good God sees everything
Since Hell and Heaven
Would not let me in
I headed to the place in-between

Purgatory Mountain, here I sit until I stop
Could be forever, could be never
Somewhere a Holy Jury
Comes to a decision
As I wait on Purgatory Mountain top

Cloudy weather rules my penance
Below the Mountain is a turbulent ocean
Up in the distance
Rays of light cut through the sky
So I stand before Good God like a man

Good God
I am so sorry that I labeled You bad
Please don't destroy me like the Sun
I am so sorry that I ended my life
But I think it was
The worst one I could ever have

The light falls on my face
And the power of His Grace
Makes me wish I never took my life
And threw it away

Then a consecrated Fountain
Emerges from the Mountain
And the Voice of God commands me:

"Hear what I say...
Take the Grail upon the Fountain
On Purgatory Mountain
And drink the Holy Water
That the Fountain supplies"

I obey the Holy Father
Drink the Holy Water
Then the Mountain starts to tremble
It's a sacred surprise

The consecrated Fountain
On Purgatory Mountain
Starts to crumble into pieces
Like the Mountain below

And the Voice of God commands me
To live my life again, He says:
"Man, you've got a long way to go"

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Shared Again
SHARED AGAIN

((( Man # 8 )))

I've lived through Seven Lives
Lost the same girl seven times
It's true, she lived the same lives too
Now my Eighth Life is shared again
By the same girl I knew back then
She's here, will history repeat this year?

I don't wanna lose her again
It's been five-hundred long years
Since the First time
But the last time wasn't long enough ago
To find the strength
To let her break my heart again

(repeat)

She never looks at all the same
She never even has the same old name
But she has been reliving
Seven Lives with me
I always seem to find the girl
That seems find me
In this great big world
She dies and rises up to God
Above the skies

I don't wanna lose her again
It's been five-hundred long years
Since the First time
I've been living, she's been dying
What's the point in finding strength
To let her break my heart again?

I met her in a distant time
She fell, the ladder wasn't meant to climb
I cried the very First time she died
The Second time was alcohol
The Third and Fourth
Because of buildings tall
In Five and Six and Seven
She could not survive

I don't wanna lose her again
I don't think that I can take it this time
Because this girl has hit me
Harder than ever
And the bond would be painful to sever

I don't wanna share it again
Because my heart has been
Broken before
But if she decides to love me
One more time, I'll say:
"Oh yes
But please don't
Share my life again"
Shared again

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: To Make You Happy
TO MAKE YOU HAPPY

((( Man # 8 )))

You said you loved me
I replied the same
God's Will is coming
The truth is very plain
You sit around all day and cry
There's nothing we can do
It's been decided

I've lived Eight times now
You have lived the same
We both looked different
We both had different names
But I always remember
And you always forget
I couldn't hide it
It's been decided

I made Him angry
I labeled God as bad
He made the ladder break
The fall took all I had
I was already damned enough
I slit open my wrists
But Hell denied me

I stood before Him
He labeled me as bad
He said my disregard for living
Made Him mad
He took our spirits from the sky
And gave us life again
He makes me lonely
Each time He makes me

What can I do to make you happy?
I am so sorry you're involved in this
It's all my fault

I said I loved you
I know it sealed your fate
The countdown now begins
This is the starting date
I know you think I should have lied
But lying is a sin
And God can hear me

You must be strong with me
We haven't lots of time
Don't spend your living days
Repenting for my crime
He won't be changing any Rules
So wipe away your tears
He makes me lonely
Each time He makes me

To make you happy
Sure would mean so much to me

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Maximum Of A Year
MAXIMUM OF A YEAR

((( Man # 8 )))

Have no advice to give
Don't know how short you'll live
It can't be long my dear
You'll die within a maximum of a year

The Rules are very clear
You'll die within a year
Of the day when we said
We loved each other
Pretty soon you'll be dead

Maximum of a year
The Rules are very clear
It can't be long my dear
You'll die within a year

Sometimes one day you die
Sometimes three-sixty-five
Sometimes three-sixty-six
You died one Leap Year
A break I could not fix

Maximum of a year
The Rules are very clear
It can't be long my dear
You'll die within a year

Maximum of a year
The Rules are very clear
It can't be long my dear
You'll die within a maximum of a year

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: The Worst Year Of My Lives
THE WORST YEAR OF MY LIVES

((( Man # 8 )))

She said she loved me and then she died
I knew she would but I gave it a try
I think God's Will has once returned
Eternal Lesson taught to learn

I saw it coming but I tried to ignore
The fact that she never
Outlived me before
Right from the start I knew
She wouldn't survive
But this turned into
The worst year of my Lives

But I know that she will find me again
A different incarnation of the girl
With a soul just the same as before

Yes I know that I will find her again
In different incarnations of the girl
With a soul just the same as before

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Susannah
SUSANNAH

((( Man # 9 )))

There's something
Strange about Susannah
She's such a twisted little girl
She's got me wrapped around her finger
Someday she plans to rule the world

It wouldn't surprise you if she succeeded
She's got a radiance you can't resist
But deep inside her heart is evil
I've tasted venom in her kiss

Most people tell me
That she's wrong for me
Because she never treats me right
They say her temper's much too volatile
She's like a stick of dynamite

But I could never tell her no
She's much too sharp to let her go
What would I do if I was anywhere
But standing there with her?

I met Susannah in September
She was the new girl at the school
I watched her walk into the classroom
Her sway was calm
And her collection was cool

Somehow she found me once again
The girl I've loved so many times
With every movement
That Susannah makes
She's like a past-life pantomime

It's sad to know this couldn't last
I should be learning a lot
From what I learned in the past
What could I do?
I fell in love with her
Because she said she fell in love with me

I told Susannah she was dying
She said I'm crazy but I cleaned the slate
She heard the dark details
Of our past livings
And every time we had a brush with fate

She said: "I love you, but I hate you more
Because I'm doomed to die tonight"

I said: "Our one year anniversary
Will be a wake by candlelight, but…

"Oh Susannah don't you cry
'Cause it's a matter of fact
It's just a matter of time"

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Something's Coming
SOMETHING'S COMING

((( Man # 10 )))

Something's coming in the distance
Something's running with a fright
Coming closer, getting louder
Beast morose or friendly sight?
It nears the light

Frozen in a fearful terror gaze
Trapped inside a wooden forest maze
Troubled by a constant evil sound
Shape tears past me
Balance hits the ground

Something's someone
Somewhat frightened
Mad with visions of despair
It's a girl, cut up and beaten
Bloody curls of tangled hair
But something else is there

The sound remains, the monster closes in
I bite my lip, blood trickles down my chin
The frightened girl clings
Helpless at my side
Unnerved we wait for something to arrive

I stand in front of her
She holds me tight this horrid night
Two dark gold eyes are glowing
Right in front of me, quickly proceeding
My knees give out, I lose my balance
Gravity defeats me
We fall together
Curling up into a ball of safety

Something suddenly stops moving
Rushing blood into my veins
Open my eyes to find the darkness
Black night sky to soothe my pain
My senses went insane

Hallucinations caused by panicked fear
The only explanation is a deer
I kiss the girl upon her head and see
Her bloody hair was not just fantasy

A sudden growling makes
Its presence known
It chills the bone
The girl digs fingernails into my skin
What have I gotten into?
We're both attacked by something sinister
I'm holding her
We slip into unconsciousness
With one final kiss

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: They Ran Away
THEY RAN AWAY

((( An Observer, # 11 )))

They met each other at
The Ice Cream Social
They spent the day together
And the nighttime too
But when she took him home
To meet her family
It was obvious

Her parents disapproved of him
'Cause he came from
The opposite side of the tracks
And he didn't deserve her love

They didn't listen to her parents
And they continued to
Profess their feelings
But then one day they were discovered
Her father caught them
In a passionate embrace

When dealing with an angry parent
Brandishing a gun
Because his daughter lost her
Innocence too soon

You must contain control of your anxiety
Or someone could get shot
Which is exactly what occurred

A fight broke out, the gun went off
Her father toppled over lifelessly
They had no choice so
They ran away

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Cowcatcher
COWCATCHER

((( An Observer, # 11 )))

They step up to the county railroad tracks
They look so nervous but they try to relax
A train has never been a problem before
But now they're haunted by
That image of gore
When thirteen years ago
The stranger was killed
This very spot is where
His body was spilled

So c'mon, so c'mon
There's a train coming soon so c'mon
They should be crossing the rails
And the wooden board trail
To wind up safe across the tracks
Without the slightest little scratch
So c'mon Cowcatcher
Won't you leave them alone?
Their only purpose is to find a new home
She never makes him a drink
But he still loves her a lot

I still remember when the stranger was hit
The local news explained
His body was split
Straight down the middle by
The front of the train
The Cowcatcher is the name of the frame
It serves to clear obstructions
Off of the track
The Cowcatcher in front
And the Caboose in the back

So c'mon
There's a train coming soon so c'mon
They should be crossing the rails
And the wooden board trail
To wind up safe across the tracks
Without the slightest little scratch
So c'mon Cowcatcher
Won't you leave them alone?
Their only purpose is to find a new home
She never makes him a drink
But he still loves her a lot

They make a bold attempt at
Crossing the tracks
But they don't know
This is no time to relax
'Cause in the time they spent
Perusing the scene
The limits of the locomotive machine
Decreased in distance from
The boy and the girl
A minor difference in this great big world

But they stop, but they stop
'Cause her shoelace is caught
So they stop
Then the train blows a whistle
He shoots up like a missile
And he turns to find the front of the train
He trips and falls away
The Cowcatcher
Couldn't leave them alone
The boy is living but
The girl can't be sewn
A local myth urges
Never cross at this very spot
So go on Cowcatcher
Won't you leave them in peace?
The boy is paralyzed
In sadness and grief
She never made him a drink
But he still loved her a lot

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: My Empty Heart
MY EMPTY HEART

((( Man # 12 )))

I've been alive for much too long
I've lived Eleven times before
My heart was strong
I only killed myself
The First time that I lived
I now know suicide is wrong

I've been repenting since the day
The price of blasphemy
And murder wasn't paid
I had to live through ten more Lives
Consumed by grief and sadness
The same girl came and went away

And now my empty heart is breaking

Now you know why I feel so cold
My fears of loneliness
And growing old alone
Inspired a suicide
That left me an averse immortal
And so my Twelfth Life now unfolds

I learned to live with being left alone
But if the Lesson strikes again
I can't condone
To lose one dozen of the same girl
Surely would destroy me
And leave my legacy in bones

'Cause now my empty heart is breaking

Somehow she found me once again
The girl I've loved so many times
With every movement that she makes
She's like a past-life pantomime

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Infinity To The Infinite Power
INFINITY TO THE INFINITE POWER

((( Man # 12 )))

I think about you two times a day
When I am sleeping and when I am awake
My thoughts are never anywhere else
And I never thought of being myself
Until I met you

Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more than
Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more

When I see you I don't see you enough
Separation is incredibly tough to survive
I'm alive when I am holding you near
To be without you girl is all that I fear
It feels like dying

Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more than
Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more

But there is no exponential number
High enough to express my love
And every waking hour is spent
Admiring what life is made of
I dream that you will stay with me
Until we're old and one of us dies
Unless by strange coincidence
We go together
What a surprise
A surprise
Surprise!

I hope my morbid thoughts don't offend
But I am certain that
We're close to the end
I wish that time was endless and good
Because infinity wouldn't end if it could

Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more than
Infinity to the infinite power
I love you times
Infinity to the infinite power
Girl I love you more than I can

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Reconciliation
RECONCILIATION

((( Man # 12 )))

I've known her for more than a year now
I've never known the girl
For more than a year
When I was faced with a Judgment
God told me
I had to overcome my loneliness fears

God told me to stay out of Heaven
'Cause Heaven had no room
For killers like me
Instead my soul would
Remain on this planet
And live from Life to Life
In sadness and grief

The First time was a fall
The Eighth time was the worst of them all
The Ninth and Tenth and Eleventh
Were tragically sad in themselves

I ended it all with a razor
I didn't want to but I had to be free
I was labeled a blasphemous sinner
And watched Him take away
The same girl from me
(over and over again)

Cloudy weather today
But not one droplet of rain
Why do I feel like
I'm on Purgatory Mountain top?

Rays of light cut through the sky
The kind of thing that you
See when you die
But now I'm sensing
That the news isn't bad
This is the warmest feeling I've ever had

God asked me why I haven't tried to
Repeat the suicide that started the streak
I told Him though I've been
Sad and grief-stricken
I won't repeat the act that
Labeled me weak

Cloudy sky disappears
He knows I lost my loneliness fears
A long important Lesson has been
Lifted from my empty heart

God told me I never believed
Until He took all the sunshine from me
But now I'm older and I'm learning to live
He taught His Lesson
And He wants to forgive

He said the girl and I will not be reborn
We'll go to Heaven, not relive life forlorn
Although I don't know
If we're even or odd
I had a Reconciliation with God

Now I know, won't have to find her again
In different incarnations of the girl
'Cause we're both
We're both on our way to Heaven

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Passionate River
PASSIONATE RIVER

((( Man # 12 )))

I sit across from her
Across the Passionate River
I notice her and
I notice her notice me shiver
I ask the Lord to forgive me and
Let me forgive her
I turn to her and I wonder
Could this be forever?

Strict separation of sexes
Is common in Heaven
I thought the last time
That we'd ever part was Eleven
Glancing at each other
Glancing at love separation
I thought I knew
The meaning of Reconciliation

The Passionate River
Is making me shiver
The Cat and the Fiddle
Are solving the Riddle

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
