Justin Stewart Cotta

by Justin Stewart Cotta

A tear for your potion, I swam seven oceans to bring you a black rose...
Just Enough 04:55
Widow waltz in white, the whispering knife her alibi.....
My mistress of self defeat, the honey is sweet but the sting keeps me coming back for more...
Stranger 04:54
You can call me a stranger, you can call me anytime...
Achilles always bathes in hope, the fool has a dream, the goose has a joke, golden eggs without a yolk...



tired angels bruised from war
clowns with crooked smiles
trumpets sound for a new king
but his majesty sleeps well tonight
he owns the guns and the times

i hope you like the taste of dirt in your mouth
your not a tragedy just another fool's out
there'll be no eulogies today
all the priests are in jail
the lawyers have all set sail for the moon
chasing your last silver spoon

into an empty wishing well you cry
tears for the poor man's dime
achilles always bathes in hope
the fool has a dream the goose has a joke
golden eggs without a yolk

come clap your weary hands for me
i'll trade your noose for a blue collared leash
all rise your king has spoken
a gift from the chosen

"Justin Stewart Cotta is an emotional tour de force, delivering vocals that land somewhere between the power of Tool's Maynard James Keenan, and the prose of U2's Bono"
