Second official track of the album, a reprise of a song from the album "Aerosol Dreams." Lyrics based on the story, "Night Bird Flying," by Q.J. Goodwin: www.qjgoodwin.blogspot.com/p/night-bird-flying.html

lyrics

[QJ]
This is a tale of proportions much larger than it might have once seemed
Like pages torn straight from the seems, more than you think it might mean
The dreams of a young man, gripping a guitar with his young hands
And though his world turns dark like a suntan
Gives birth to a spark, know its somethin'
Brings the planet's axis to a hault
Not easy to take a walk into the vault of his mind
But at the same time, lures them in
With the fingers on the frets
Hypnotizing when he slides on the neck, so let's
Delve and take in the effect, learn from the best
Bringing Electric Church to the rest, so you know what's next
Let's go

[Chorus]
Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Healing
From floor to the ceiling
Can't ignore the feeling

Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Riding
Sounding so lively
Flowing inside of me

[T-Squared]
Night bird, insightful word
Eyes full of hope, bleeding out flames that represent the chill inside his soul
That’s why he's always laid back
Spray paints his entire history in black flames
Aims to claim his title but he can’t fight back the insanity
Because he loves himself too much, vanity
Deranged mind but they call him a genius
Fiendish rhythm while he’s spitting it or rocking it on the mic
Yet these hateful people find every flaw
Everything wrong with the way he’s tearing the game up with his claws
Still he has a cold heart on every track, he’s machine driven, he’s steampunking
He’s blowing out his thoughts onto the canvas, drunken and sleep deprived
Drop an anvil on his head and he still won’t feel alive
He’ll just fall asleep forever, Never remembering the pain he got when he was trying to survive, uh

[Chorus]
Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Healing
From floor to the ceiling
Can't ignore the feeling

Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Riding
Sounding so lively
Flowing inside of me (X2)

[QJ]
Single tear drops from the eye when he's moving forward
Maybe the lord will give him a break
Hopefully its not too late but it seems that fate
Has left a mark on his soul
The forces of evil trying to take control
Not going to make it so
'Cause he and his band are gonna take back what they stole
His attitude is his band's reflection
Many girls will show him affection
Nightmares avoid detection under the current of his mind connection
Insecurities lie down deep, hard to get rid of
Nothing left to do but get up
And brush his shoulders off, destined to make it, he told us all
Seen some action, but that was only a fraction of what led him to this
Music and words bled from his fist
Guitar strum, all in the wrist
Dodging bullets, shine to the fullest, pulling it off with no expense
Living the life by the strings of the bird, its so intense
Oh yeah!

[Chorus]
Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Healing
From floor to the ceiling
Can't ignore the feeling

Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Riding
Sounding so lively
Flowing inside of me (X2)

[Bridge]
So close your eyes (close your eyes)
And realize (and realize)
That his goal is paradise (paradise)

Through the sacrifice (sacrifice)
And the bad advice (bad advice)
He made it before the afterlife (afterlife)

[T-Squared]
Surprise, no more stopping him he's on the rise
Taking heights to a brand new level, through the cloudy skies
Up there he feels most at home, up there he can let his cranium grow
And prove everybody wrong and make real songs
Cause you know he feels it in the....

[Chorus]
Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Healing
From floor to the ceiling
Can't ignore the feeling

Black Guitar
Black Guitar
Riding
Sounding so lively
Flowing inside of me (X2)

[Outro]
Ow!
Goliath Warfare, Oh Yeah
