Fear of Love will break your heart and the hearts of others, despite the fact that you are a beautiful soul, yearning to be free.


Music & Lyrics by Stavros

All life you take
All life your break
All life you take
Breaking apart
At the seams, like a queen, of your impossible dream
Living in the past to the point of obscene
Ruling over love with a cruel intent
To keep your heart walled in your chest with regret
Boxing all your fears like an army of hate
To stand at your soul like a locked gate
As you give away, give away, pieces of your heart
Through the hole in your flesh that you're tearing apart
Such crazy lust, lies, and loads from dirty boys
Like a hunchback toad
You take anything real and use it like a tool
Take a man that is true and treat him like a fool

All life you take
All life your break apart
Churning out pieces of a soul
Cascade in paint and worn out gold
You say you wanna work, but that is just a lie
When the real effort comes you turn tale and hide
Ambitions linger - fueling remorse
Secret-coded logic that you're blind to, of course
Stealing any moment to make it your own
Never give back to Spirit, never share the bone
Like a dog in a huddle, you're pissing on the ground
Marking your territory, barking at sounds
Need a good scratch, some liquor, and a smoke
To ease the uneasy, it's all a bitter joke
When the psyche's unhinged you could really let out
Free your soul from the cage; leave that key of doubt
And flitter away like a butterfly soul
But you return to the cage 'cause it's all you know.

You will out
And fly free

All life you take
All life your break apart
A thousand pieces of your soul
A thousand pieces that you don't know
What's the name of your immovable host?
Give him all your love and leave yourself like a ghost
Feasting on memories like acid tears
Not truly living, you're wasting years
To the boys that you hurl and hold against your hip
Leer into their eye and break upon your lip
You weaken your spirit, you cheapen your bones
Locked in a flesh castle, alone in your home
You should tear away the shutters and let in some light
You should love yourself better, because you just might
See the beauty and glory of your butterfly soul
And step out from the cage a renewed pearl to hold

You will out
And fly free

All life you take
All life your break apart
No need to run
No need to run away
Today's the day to make it your own
Set aside the pride and climb down from your throne
So give yourself a hug 'cause you're worthy of love
A precious child of God with wisdom from above
Don't need the tears; don't need regret
You have everything you need if you'd just let
Better to soothe your creative goal
And set free to the sky your butterfly soul

You will out
And fly free
So free

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
