about

LyAllen South Pasadena, California

The band 'LyAllen', was created over years of confusion and blind direction. As the years went by, there seemed that there was no real understanding of what was or what will be. Just listen. And ........... Look Around.

Track Name: Second Life
If I had a second life
would I come back, butterfly
would you be the eagle in the sky
swoop down, take my life
If I was a Mighty Tree
And you the fire burning me

Ahhh circle's complete
wrong way, on a one way street
would you even bat an eye
so long, not even good bye

If I fell, fell in love
Am I the fox or the dove
desire or fly away
would you miss me anyway

Ahhh circle's complete
wrong way, on a one way street
would you even bat an eye
so long, not even good bye

If I was cat on the prowl
are you the hungry owl
sharp claws slice my back
dragged down, down by the tracks

Ahhh circle's complete
wrong way, on a one way street
would you even bat an eye
so long, not even good bye
Track Name: Secret
Forbidden fruit , knowledge locked, only one key
Is there another place, you can breathe?
Steal away the moments, slip away inside
No one can see you, run and hide

Take me on your journey, I can understand
Promises made for a life, need a gentle hand
Want to open up my heart, hard to let it go
You can give me courage, place I can grow

You have a secret, tell me what you need
You have a secret, secret dreams
Share with me a secret life, It’s safe with me
Hold a little close what you believe

I'm a faded book of wishes, ashes in between
Truth is written in there, so hard to read
Lost in the golden light, evening brings on dreams
Burn in the candle smoke, scent of burning leaves

(Chorus)

I'll take you on my journey, you can understand
promises made for life need a gentle hand
you want to open up your heart, hard to let it go
I can give you courage, a place that you can grow

Do you have a secret, tell me what you need
if you have a secret, tell me secret dreams
Track Name: Days of Plunder
no cries for the average man who always pays his lenders
now theres nothing left there in his hand

From the hill they see he's bleeding
They just sell him more empty dreams, Even when he’s on his knees and screaming

Last chance for the average man who works with sweat, pain and callused hands
end of the week he's got nothing left to satisfy his own demands

From the hill they see he's bleeding
They just sell him more empty dreams, Even when he’s on his knees and screaming

Each of them says I'm the perfect one I'll save your life and throw you a bone
I'll pretend like I care about you, after elected I’m afraid that you’re through
Each of them says I'm the perfect one I'll save your life and throw you a bone
I'll pretend like I care about you, after elected I’m afraid that you’re through

He tries to swallow the lies and goes out on a bender. feeling a bit smaller than a man

From the hill they see he's bleeding
They just sell him more empty dreams, Even when he’s on his knees and screaming

Each of them says I'm the perfect one I'll save your life and throw you a bone
I'll pretend like I care about you, after elected I’m afraid that you’re through
Each of them says I'm the perfect one I'll save your life and throw you a bone
I'll pretend like I care about you, after elected I’m afraid that you’re through

better days coming your way, I'll change it and make it work for pay
No social security no medicare no pension plans no F.E.M.A.
No roads no inter infrastructure and I’m afraid it’s Days Of Plunder for you

no cries for the average man who always pays his lenders
now theres nothing left there in his hand.....
Track Name: Dreaming of Tomorrow
