flotsam jetsam – ocotober thorns lyrics


what was it, something that i realised
a need inside me took me by surprise
i see two sides now, i just don’t know
subjected now an addict of control

mirror yourself if you can even try
gaze deep into god’s sleepy eye
arabesques in my cold burn freeze
deliverance upon my dirty knees

dominator life’s blood, my need
the balance in my hands, the life blood seed
underneath a hood of stars, i realised just who you are

oh, my october th-rns in my side
it makes me wonder will the need subside

you miscalculated the algebra of need
i died for you, now why shouldn’t you return the favour

you’ve come to learn junkie of control
the more you push the stuff, the more it flows
twist the plot of demand supply
a grim reflection of both you and i

now i know just who you really are
i realised just who i really am
now i know just who i really am

“i wrote this little rock ‘n’ roll riff at 3: 00 am in the
morning, sitting in my room. took it to practice the
next day, arranged it, mr. gregory had lyrics a few
weeks later. here it is.” mike
