THE OVERBEARING Have you seen the overbearing Did you see the monster that swims in my blood It’s the same monster I’ve always had The monster yells – the monster bites at the mind The monster sees – the monster feels If something could – the monster would It’s the same monster I’ve always had Have you seen the overbearing Did you see the monster that swims in my blood It’s the same monster I’ve always had The monster knows that he can kill if he wants The monster knows that there’s stronger ones too – so let us train Have you seen the overbearing Did you see the monster that swims in my blood It’s the same monster I’ve always had Even when we met it was moving – slow but moving When I was younger it would swarm all over the outside

PLEASE LINGERING Take my hyper real life home from now When he comes around Take him home for now – he’s lingering He’s lingering / I’m vulnerable Please Lingering I won’t let him go / I’m useless Please Lingering I won’t let him go He’s lingering / I’m vulnerable Please Lingering I won’t let him go / I’m useless Please Lingering I won’t let him go So tell me How can I live my life in two ways But still see only half of what’s to see Since he’s home I’ll have to leave – I’m lingering I’m lingering / He’s vulnerable Please Lingering I won’t let him go / I’m useless Please Lingering I won’t let him go He’s lingering

GARDEN US BEAUTIFUL We’ll use us I’ll use you as you use me >> Use us we Think of you using me We’ll buy us I’ll buy you as you buy me >> Buy us we Why are you buying me After all it’s all us We create why we moan After all it’s all us We are and we are not alone We’ll fight us I’ll fight you as you fight me Who are you fighting me After all it’s all us We create why we moan After all it’s all us We are and we are not alone I am in my yard gardening You are in your yard gardening Let’s garden us like our yards – beautiful Let’s garden us like our yards – beautiful Let’s garden us beautiful Let’s garden us like our yards – beautiful Let’s garden us beautiful No need to use us, buy us, fight us, hurt us, cheat us, steal us, hate us and beat us, trick us or leave us It’s beautiful to hold us I’ll hold you as you hold me >> Hold us we After all it’s all us We create why we moan After all it’s all us We are and we are not alone

LET ME HAVE IT See it – cut it out Now look at it - what’s it worth alone Now that it’s no longer with you If you – were to be with me once again Would you cut me out Or will you try to stitch us up There’s a walk you have – Creepy yet cool The closer you get The larger the knife Let me have it once Don’t think about it twice it won’t be fine anyway Let me have it once Don’t think about it twice it won’t be fine anyway

POISON See the beautiful and lovely berries in their shiny blackness We can hang them on the endings of your nerves And here’s the rest The dilation of your eyes The freezing over of your blood-vessels We can hear the silence of your heart - Die What’s this tender flower you hold - before me Socrates could have said He had to swallow there’s no coincidence When he stopped breathing Because he was dead
6.
DEATH ROW* Someone built a room and then Another to its side Someone kills an officer Or maybe it was their wife Because they’ve done a kill One-by-one the rooms get filled For some check-out lingers on Others will be soon Someone like me gets the job To empty all the rooms At the end of day I am legally – paid When you get your deaths Keep them all in a row On death row *Idea and concept from Fiona Jone Magliari

HAPPENS WHEN It happens even if it never should I'll stop it just before it ever could Picture me running sideways under sprinklers in your lawn Rolling over Rolling - Underneath is where I see the Buggers crawl All over me I can see it all Picture me running sideways under sprinklers in your lawn Above the earth I'm wet and feeling clean But you are not here And I will not follow We die alone I know Picture me running sideways under sprinklers in your lawn Above the earth I'm wet and feeling - Clean me now - Get them off - I lied The buggers have teeth that split me wide Picture me running sideways under SPIRITS in your lawn Among them all I try to close my eyes But you are not here And I will not follow We die alone I know (x2) . . . Ever after all is said and done with here / We'll meet again Ever smiling / Ever numbness / Fearless when we meet again I’ll stop it even if it never should Picture me running sideways under SPIRITS in your lawn Inside the earth I'm wet and feeling clean But you are not here And I will not follow We die alone I know Picture me running sideways under SPIRITS in your lawn Inside the earth I close my eyes for good

COME TOGETHER OVER ME part 1 I – I am done I – I am gone No more bills – No more stress All cleaned up with that mess Come together over me / Happiness is what I see I – I can float Without wings – sins fly away No more tears in my eyes and my smile is real Come together and see / Life has nothing on me Unalive and feeling nothing – Even pain was feeling something Which is safe – what is best – is it life or death – too late – I’ve passed

COME TOGETHER OVER ME part 2 Now I feel there’s no warmth And a shiver leaves me cold I cannot find my dad Thought his hand would be there to . . . Hold onto Bliss No more bills – No more stress Come together over me Happiness is what I see . . . Now I feel there’s no warmth And a shiver has me cold I cannot find my dad Thought his hand would be there to . . . hold

Orange 04:38
ORANGE If you like orange Go find orange If it’s your favorite color Don’t look for any other So don’t look at me and see orange For I am blue If you like the taste of anger Go take a bite If your house is on fire A match I wouldn’t light Don’t look at me to find anger For I’m not you You flew away – On a horse – Out of my home You said you couldn’t do it – so leave me a lone Like you did It happened again and again It happened again and again If you like orange Go find orange If it’s your favorite color Don’t look for any other So don’t look at me and see orange For I am blue And I’m not you

about

The Greatest Hit is a conceptual album using the growing pains of life as well as the mystery of life and death. Of course there are no answers here but plenty of food for thought and original songwriting.

Paul JM is tyhe founder of the band Period Comma and has been influenced by early Genesis, Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles and Velvet Underground.

Paul has always blended the punk scene with the progressive side of music. While listening to bands such as Genesis, Yes, Gentle Giant, Emerson Lake and Palmer, he also dove deep into Iggy and the Stooges, New York Dolls, Alice Cooper, Bowie and the Gang of Four to name a few.
