EVERY MINUTE (R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

Bring into the memory when I go underground
show me what is lost so that it may be found
standing in the presence of a storm that I have been
I free my mind to see the timeless act within 

Every minute calling to awake to a sound
behind the space where a movement is found
show me everyday 
my conception is new
living every moment
and the sound is in you 

Every second glistening
in spaces in between
coming into focus
what cannot be seen
dizzy in the heights
until I finally let it go
I rise above the prison
that I see below

The wheel is ever turning
and the cycle is at end
awesome in the presence of a day begins
burning an illusion as we rise into the sun
if we are in remembrance we will stay in love 

Denying limits as they fade into night
open a door and explode into light
show me everyday my conception is new
living every moment and the sound is in you

BETTER WORLD (K. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

As the sky is falling from me
I can only lose my way
when I'm shattered into pieces
there's a better world for me 

And the sunlight is an ocean
waves of sky envelope me
ride the winds of changing compass
to a better world for me 

But I've got time to find my own
I'll get mine and then I'll know
of a better world than what had gone

WHAT I BELIEVE IS YOU (R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

I've been waiting for the signs
that decide what it is I will do and say
I'm afraid I've made a mistake
so I panic and then just stay away 

Can I trust the voice in my mind
the look in your eyes so familiar
should I heed the strain in my heart
or is there some way to know better 

I try to fight what I believe is you
so forgive me if I don't buy your lines
I can see that they are rehearsed
you've been hanging on them for some time 

Now it's time for you to take a stand
and face the unknown that you hide
to reveal the face of a truth
buried so deep in the night 

I can tell that you expect me
to change what has gone in your mind
but it's you who has to make the move
if you want to break free from your binds 

Now can we expect to succeed
if I'm the only one who believes
we can share in a love that can reach
the ones who are free to receive

GAMES (K. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

You've got all that you need
but you're down on your knees
and it's keeping you from rising up
feel the pain of giving in to what you don't believe in
It's a shame that you don't have the guts 

Trying hard but I can't get by 
got caught up in your tangled lives 

I'm not gonna play your game anymore
I'm not gonna play your game anymore 

And the love that you made is the one you betrayed
with a self-righteous ignorant lust
for a walk in his shoes and games you can't win or lose
but you'll never know who you can trust 

And the walls are caving in on a guilded palace of sin
'cause we don't need a reason to love
but you hate to be used is there no beauty in truth
when you realize how far you've gone?

A PIECE OF MY OWN (K. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

Never mind what you have got
I only want a piece of my own
All around they laugh and sing
why can't they all just leave me alone?
I'm tired of the tides that turn
the waving of the magic wand
I don't care about the future now
I only want a piece of my own 

Don't tell me how to run and hide
in darkness there is nowhere to go
There's no danger in the knowledge
that there's more to what you've been shown
The love is lost and beauty's faded circles
run around your eyes
I don't care about the future now
I only want a piece of my own 

I'm tired of the tides that turn
the waving of the magic wand
I don't care about the future now
I only want a piece of my own

TOMORROW (R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

Though the sun shines on to follow
through the mist that fills the hollow
and days play on that lead me to tomorrow
from a ledge that stretches broadly
to horizons bold and reaching
I move ahead to see if I'm believing 

Dreams that flow into my mind 
scenes that play out in the night- stay in sight
But I'm still beyond the season
where I can't escape the reason
and sleep beneath the sky that holds my being 

Now the shadow has been lifted
revealing what it witnessed
and brought the scene to hear at my insistence
I look at you in wonder
with a face so cold and raining
but this time I don't need to be engaging 

Dreams that flow into my mind
scenes that play out in the night- stay in sight
So I'll take what I can borrow
from a wheel that drove in sorrow
and turn around today into tomorrow

WE'RE NOT GETTING THROUGH (R . Reil)
1996 The Grip Weeds

Farther on the road we try to get up off the ground
we can make it work if we could only lose our doubt 

How long can we withstand
when nothing goes as planned 

We're not getting through
there's a wall between us two
we're not getting through
no matter what we try
we're only getting by 

No one seems to notice what it is that we're about
now we're getting nervous 'cause the time is running out 

The challenge does invite
a prize well worth the fight 

We're not getting through
there's a wall between us two
we're not getting through
no matter what we try
we're only getting by

IN WAKING DREAMS (K. Reil- R. Reil- K. Pinell)
1998 The Grip Weeds

Signs of life passing by
inner journey is taking me
World of pain falls away
from the loneliness that lies within 

Do I believe what I don't recognize
in waking dreams I live and die 

What I was is at once
rising up above the atmosphere 

Glistening like the sea
and the waves are flowing out of me
To the ones I can't touch
they can see and feel the energy 

Do I believe what I don't recognize
in waking dreams I live and die 

After life is the light
bringing all into its energy

MORNING RAIN (K. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

You're not to blame for my morning rain
It's a reaction to what's happening 
I can't understand this place I'm in
Why can't you see that I'm in between
don't know how I'm gonna make ends meet
I think I would rather be asleep 

Ease the pain morning rain
morning rain come what may
morning rain morning rain 

Clouds in the sky fog up my mind
and my thoughts diffuse to opaque-white
keep me from the truth I see in light
My morning rain show me the way
to see through the mist beyond the haze
give me wisdom to know better days

READY AND WAITING (K. Reil- R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

I can see the coming of something beginning
I can feel the vibrations when you pass by 

Calling to me awakening inside
Coming to me what I know to be mine 

and I'm ready and waiting for you
and I'm ready and waiting for you 

It's in the air the time of the season I'm reeling
It's in the way the change overcomes my denial 

Open and free and the loss is my gain
wanting to be but I'm still on the way 

How long can I believe in love
when all along it's been denied? 

Calling to me awakening inside
Coming to me what I know to be mine 

and I'm ready and waiting for you
and I'm ready and waiting for you.
and I'm ready and waiting for you
and I'm ready and waiting

STRANGE BIRD (R . Reil)
1993 The Grip Weeds

Is she shy or indifferent I can't really say
want to break her resistance, will she turn me away
they don't understand her, they won't even try
she knows what they're saying but you won't see her cry 

A silent observer in a world that's so unkind
she's a real strange bird in her mind 

Her unbroken stare seems forever to linger
she plays with her hair with a nervous finger
how can it be though it sounds absurd
she talks to me without saying a word 

Something about this girl
attracts me to her little world
though I try to get inside
it seems she's got something to hide

EVERYTHING AND ALL YOU FEEL (K. Pinell- K. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

You say that no one really knows you
How is it that you know yourself?
You rarely look outside your own door
but yet you think you've seen the truth 

Everything is loneliness
I want to know you
All you feel is emptiness
I want to show you 

You've grown easy with deception
but now you're tangled up in lies
you're a fool to think it better
to hide behind a disguise 

And to your passions you may speak
by building walls around your heart
avoid the pain that makes you grieve
but you never will know love

DOWN TO THE WIRE (Neil Young)

Every time you touch her sets your hands on fire
and everything you've got is all that she requires 

And you hang on to the words of a liar
you can feel it getting down to the wire 

All the hurt you thought was gone has now returned
and everything she's laughing at is all you're learned 

and you let go cause you know you're getting tired 
can you feel it getting down to the wire 

Take the time to close your eyes and look around
'cause anyone who helped you out can let you down 

and look out the voice is now a choir
can you feel it getting down to the wire

WHAT'S IN YOUR MIND (R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

I stood outside the altar
fire burns into the sky
climbing up so high
though we fail to recognize 

Reveal to me the answer I have
searched for long in vain
I want to reach the light
that you hide behind your face 

I want to know what's in your mind
gonna make it in time 

I tried too hard to understand
forcing a reply
fell headlong into doubt
thoughts oppose me passing by 

As I laid down to the ground
it came all by itself
all that you want to know
you got to find it for yourself 

Who can say what is without 
and calling it by name
points only to a sign
flashing in an empty frame

INCA (R. Reil)
1998 The Grip Weeds

See stars command in the horizon
he reads the signs that would advise him
standing in a circle high above the open plain
raising up his hands to those invited 

As it is now disappear into the age 
remembering how we remain engaged 

Days bring on the sight compose entice him
phase and shadow race to break beside him
the image of the sun beats down upon his open face
light bringing out a ray inside him 

As it is now disappear into the age
remembering how we remain engaged 

Time timeless love engaging voices
find the height of now where it rejoices 
a bent expression crying as it leads into the wind
high up above the waging forces 

As it now disappear into the age
remembering how we remain
As it is now disappear into the age
remembering how we remain engaged
