While the bathtub is slowly filling up
She downs her pills with a glass of red wine
She tests the water and it's fine
Somewhere she’d read it must be just right

Resting her head on a bath pillow she’d brought
She is ready for her bath - peaceful and quiet
She reaches for the razor blade knife
As soon as she feels the numbness set in

She’s overcoming
All pretense and disguise
She’s overcoming
His deceptions and lies


And she’s hearing music
Wonderful, beautiful music
Now that she’s joining the angels’ choir

Run don’t walk, learn to fly
Dreams come true when you try.
So I chased after mine.
Dreams come true when you try.

I wandered in a desert
My thirst began to grow.
My dream became a mirage
A well beneath a grove.
My lips were cracked and blistered
The water wasn’t sweet.
What I had longed for was freedom
But that’s a two way street.

Learn to walk before you run.
Look before you leap.
Before you step from the edge
Make sure you’re not asleep.

I can’t say I remember
The way things really were.
It could have been December
Quite possibly the third.
The day seemed ordinary.
I wished that things would change
When a voice called out to me
From deep inside my brain.

I wrote my resignation.
I put my home for sale.
I bought myself a small boat
And hoisted up her sail.
I had no destination,
No place I had to be.
I had never been so lost
I’d never been so free.


Learn to walk before you run.
Look before you leap.
Before you step from the edge
Make sure you’re not asleep.

I haven’t slept forever
Their blood’s dried on my shoes
when this hail of lead is over
I’m drowning myself in booze.

Some I save and some I lose
But always there are more.
It’s my job to repair
the damages of war.

Some boys cry and want their mothers
Others beg; Doc end it please.
I do what I’ve got to
Then get down upon my knees.

God have mercy on my soul
Their blood is on my hands.
All I can do is pray and hope;
That the good lord understands.

DREAMS COME TRUE

Music: John Evans

Song Structure/Vocal Melody: Rob Baitinger

Lyrics: Carroll Kiphen

Vocals: Needed

If they had their way all they would say
Is ignorance is bliss, save it for another day

They say I, Should let sleeping dogs lie
Tell me I have got nothing to prove
Why don’t I just move on?
Tell me why not let sleeping dogs lie
You’re only gonna cause more pain
Open a can of worms when there’s nothing to gain

But they don’t know that every waking minute
I’m getting closer to reaching my limit
Cos even in my sleep you’re haunting my dreams
Unless I kill the lies I can’t be done with these regimes


​Don't ask why, Even sleeping dogs lie

When they rest on a bed of untruth

​Nothing but lies burn through

I’m going to wake up I know I will
This has be a dream
Something fabricated
from a violent movie scene. 

There are bodies torn apart
Their blood is on my hands
I’m in a hail storm of bullets  
marooned in a foreign land. 

Some I save and some I lose
But always there are more.
It’s my job to repair
the damages of war.

Morphine’s the only god they know
Who can take their pain away.
Absolve me of my sins
and help me through these days.

The toughest part is playing god;
Choosing who will die
Those faces I’ll remember
I’ll remember all my life.

But always there are more.
It’s my job to repair
the damages of war.


​Guitar Solo

Let them die, let their sleeping lies die
Cos sleeping isn’t dead and buried
And the lies and the cheating aren’t temporary

And they don’t know that every waking minute
I’m getting closer to reaching my limit
Cos even in my sleep you’re haunting my dreams
It’s time to kill the lies so I can be done with these regimes

Now it’s time, To let sleeping dogs die
I have got nothing left to lose
I’ve paid all of my dues
Now it’s time to let sleeping dogs die

Cos sleeping isn’t dead and buried
When the lies and the cheating aren’t temporary

ADDITIONAL DEMOS THAT I AM SEEKING A VOCALIST AND/OR LYRICIST FOR

Run don’t walk, learn to fly
Dreams come true when you try.
So I chased after mine.
Dreams come true when you try.

Guitar Solo

Run don’t walk, learn to fly
Dreams come true when you try.
So I chased after mine.
Dreams come true when you try.

Run don’t walk, learn to fly
Dreams come true when you try.
But brother don’t you cry
If you’re dissatisfied.

Guitar Solo


She is fascinated by billowing clouds
That soon color the water bright red
While contemplating what might lie ahead
She’s getting tired and dizzy at last

She’s overcoming
All pretense and disguise
She’s overcoming
His deceptions and lies


And she’s hearing music
Wonderful, beautiful music
Now that she’s joining the angels’ choir

She’s hearing music
Wonderful, beautiful music
Now that she’s joining the angels’ choir
