about

Use Your Words is Wishnefsky's first solo album after the break up of his band Jabberwock.

Use Your Words picks up where Jabberwock left off and heads in a more electronic based direction: alternative rock with intelligent and poetic lyrics, inventive arrangements, passionate and powerful performances, and a creative spark or two.

Use Your Words is a digital release only.

Track Name: Body Without a Soul
BODY WITHOUT A SOUL

Running aground, running amok
Out of control, out of luck
Going along, going astray
The sweetest pill to kill the pain

Leave me lonely, lonely
Body without a soul, body without a soul
Leave me lonely, lonely
Body without a soul, body without a soul

Buying more time, buying release
If I could pay, I’d buy my peace
Pushing it hard, pushing it in
Won’t play your game, so I can’t win

I can take it
I can fake it
I can make it
I can break it
I forsake it
I can take it away

Closing my eyes, searching my mind
Looking for something deep inside
Rising up in the afterglow
Another body without a soul

I can take it
I can fake it
I can make it
I can break it
I forsake it
I can take it away

I can take it
I can fake it
I can make it
I can break it
I forsake it
I can take it away

Running aground, running amok
Looking for someone I can f….

Body without a soul
Body without a soul
Track Name: Use Your Words
USE YOUR WORDS

Use your words

I’m not going to take this lying down
I’m not going let you bring me down
‘Cause I have got to make a change
I’m not going to take this lying down

Use your words (repeat, rinse, dry)
Track Name: Come To Me
COME TO ME

How can I help you?
I can’t even help myself
How can touch you?
When I don’t even know what I feel

Love
Come to me
Love
Come to me

How can I miss you?
When I can’t even find myself
How can I kiss you?
I can’t even taste my dreams

Love
Come to me
Love
Come to me

How can I save you?
I can’t even save myself
Love
Come to me
Track Name: You'll Find Out
YOU'LL FIND OUT

I’m a feather in the air in the sky
Floating over everything you do
When you believe that you are all alone

I’m the ripple on the waves in the sea
Holding you afloat over all you doubt
Is this a dream?
Well, you’ll find out

You’ll find out

I’m the ringing of the phone in your mind
Answer me and you will hear the voice of
Someone you forgot you left behind

I’m the venom in the fangs of the snake
Waiting for your step to come about
You think you’re all alone
But you’ll find out

You’ll find out
You’ll find out
You’ll find out
Track Name: Your Husband The Fool
YOUR HUSBAND THE FOOL

Sitting on the roof
Staring into the night
Trying to recover
From a knock down drag out fight

You said you wanted to throw me away
‘Cause I belong in the trash
But you would rather stay and put up with me
Than part with the cash

You call me a fool
Your husband the fool
But who is fooling who?

Floating in the bath
Trying to relax
Trying to convince myself
That this will come to pass

You said you wanted someone to hug
But you can’t embrace your lies
You hate loneliness more than you’d love to leave me
Hanging out to dry

You married a fool
Your husband the fool
But who is fooling who?

You dress me up in a jester’s hat
With bells upon my shoes
But you can’t escape
That the way I look
Reflects all that is you
So call me a fool

Sitting on the beach
Looking over the sea
Trying to forget that you said
Love is all you need

You said you wanted to throw me away
‘Cause I belong in the trash
But you would rather stay and put up with me
Than part with the cash

You call me a fool
Your husband the fool
But who is fooling who?
Track Name: Going Inside
GOING INSIDE

Tearing up the fabric of my mind
Pulling back the curtains on the divine

Going inside
Going inside
Going inside
Going inside
I’m going inside
Going inside

A little lost boy without a voice
A little lost boy without a choice

Going inside
Going inside
Going inside
Going inside
I’m going inside
Going inside

The minute hand ticks
It’s a matter of time
The minute hand ticks
It’s just a matter of time
Track Name: Blindness
BLINDNESS

I feel so messed up inside
All of it I try to hide
Nothing makes me feel alive
Left my stinger in the hive

So I turn my eyes to you
To see if that can pull me through
But you fell down the slippery slope
And now you’re calling for the rope

All I can see
Saving you is killing me
My heart stops
So you breathe
Blindness
Blindness

You are so messed up inside
The universe of tears you’ve cried
Couldn’t wash away the lies
Piercing from your stinging eyes

You want me to heal the pain
And cool the burning in your brain
But sucking my life down the drain
Only derails the train

All I can see
Saving you is killing me
My mouth chokes
So you feed
Blindness

Blindness
Track Name: Deceiver
DECEIVER

(Don’t believe a word I say)

Sailing over Lake Psychosis
Where the fish are so ferocious
Looking for my Mesalina
Jezebel, you’ve must have seen her
Oh my God, you’re so indecent
Little too late or too recent
Waiting in anticipation
Waiting for some fornication

Tune in your receiver
Time to tighten the grip
I am the Deceiver
Let me give you a tip
Don’t believe a word I say

(Don’t believe a word I say)

Look at me I’m in the bubble
Heading down the road to trouble
Sensual and very racy
Nothing here could ever faze me
Call the guards and sound the trumpets
Send in all the sluts and strumpets
Looking for my lustful floozy
Floating in the jacuzzi

Someone get me the cleaver
I need something to hack
I am the Deceiver
Better not turn your back
Don’t believe a word I say

Are you a believer?
Time to give it a rip
I am the Deceiver
Let me give you the slip
Don’t believe a word I say

(Don’t believe a word I say)
Track Name: Fire of Desire
FIRE OF DESIRE

The fox comes to steal the mother hen’s eggs
The emperor shrugs at the kid who begs
The old man whistles at the young girl’s legs
And the fire of desire will never burn out

You only want what you can’t get
No one lives without regret
The gambler wants to place another bet
And the fire of desire will never burn out

When you're soft and cuddly as a porcupine
And you dream of turning water into wine
Your feet are dirty, but your soul’s divine
And the fire of desire will never burn out

The fat man’s grown too big for his britches
The rich man’s spent every cent of his riches
The pimp is gonna beat his bitches
And the fire of desire will never burn out

The fireman dreams of a golden ladder
The weatherman listens for the pitter-patter
Grandfather wishes for a stronger bladder
And the fire of desire
The fire of desire
Yeah, the fire of desire will never burn out

Ha ha

Ha
Track Name: November 7
NOVEMBER 7

We took him out of the country
And brought him back to the city where he knows his way
Through the serpentine alleys
The smoke filled caverns where they call his name
With a generous offer
With a promise and a guarantee
He was losing will to live
No taste of malice in the air to breathe

It took the glare of the neon
To light a path to his resting place
The peace that beckons
A state of beautiful grace

Into the rain
Into the night
Into the sky that burns so bright
Into the storm
Into the flame
Into the source of all the pain
Into the past
Into the egg
Into the urge between your legs
Into the day
Into the sun
Into the place where we are one

We took him out of the city
And brought him to a grave in the countryside
And the fresh air hit him
His spirit rose into fading night
A spirit of the smoke
A taste of malice in the air to breathe

And the caverns were calling
The alleys were deserted again
The racket of the taxis
Chopping up the scattered rain

Into the rain
Into the night
Into the sky that burns so bright
Into the day
Into the sun
Into the place where we are one

We are one
Track Name: Christmas Goose
CHRISTMAS GOOSE

It’s the time of year when shadows are long
The ground is frozen; the sunlight is gone
You’ve got a present for me to unwrap
I can’t thank you enough for giving me this crap

According to you you’re nothing but great
Do us all a favor and hibernate
Chestnuts roasting in the nuclear glow
All you caca farmers will reap what you sow

Christmas goose
Christmas goose
You’re getting loose
Christmas goose
Cooking in the oven
Or hanging from the noose
What did you do to deserve this abuse?
Christmas goose

All you slaves need to pick up the slack
A few malingerers sleeping in the back
The day is early; there are leagues to go
Unless you want the whip, you’d better start to row

Christmas goose
Christmas goose
You’re getting juiced
Christmas goose
Roasting in the oven
Or hanging from the noose
What did you do to deserve this abuse?
Christmas goose

Landing more punches than the thrilla in the Manilla
You’re about as subtle as Rodan and Godzilla
Making more waves than a Cuban flotilla
The sun only shines through the holes in the prison walls

Christmas goose
Christmas goose
You’re getting stuffed
Christmas goose
Cooking in the oven
Or hanging from the noose
What did you do to deserve this abuse?
Christmas goose

Christmas goose
Christmas goose
You’re getting loose
Christmas goose
Cooking in the oven
Or hanging from the noose
What did you do to deserve this abuse?
Christmas goose
Track Name: What's Behind This Smile
WHAT'S BEHIND THIS SMILE

Staring down my demons
In my breakneck style
Keep those bastards guessing
What’s behind this smile

Look them in the eye
They just fade away
Like plumes of lethal smoke
Rising from the grave

What’s behind this smile
Is anybody’s guess
What’s behind this smile
Is too much to confess

Vultures on the rooftops
Watching every mile
Waiting to devour
What’s behind this smile

They will wait forever
Looming in the sky
Like thunderclaps and storm clouds
Floating in the eye

What’s behind this smile
Is really quite a mess
What’s behind this smile
Is too much to confess

Yes I know the devil looks like an honest man
And I know the devil marches in this wicked land
And I know that God is sick of this human race
And I know he doesn’t listen when us earthlings pray
And I know the time will come when my name is called
And I know I’ve got to be there standing quiet and tall
And I know the time will come when this world will fall
Yes I know the time will come when we end it all

Yes I know

Keep those bastards guessing
What’s behind this smile
Track Name: Come to Me (Reprise)
COME TO ME (REPRISE)

How can I reach you?
I can even reach myself
Love
Come to me

Love
Come to me

Love
Come to me
Come to me

Come to me

Love
Track Name: Get It Over With
GET IT OVER WITH

If all hope is lost
Then there’s nothing left to lose
And if all choice is gone
Then there’s nothing to choose

Out of my head
Out of my mind
Out of luck
And out of time
I just want to get it over
Want to get it over with

And if all bets are off
Then there’s nothing left to win
And if we’re all in Hell
Does it matter if I sin?

I’m out of my head
Out of my mind
Out of luck
And out of time
I just want to get it over
Want to get it over with

I just want to make it stop
Want to let the hammer drop
If you look into my heart
It’s been blown apart

And if all hope is lost
Then there’s nothing left to fear
And if I never cry
Then I’ll never want for tears

Out of my head
Out of my mind
Out of luck
And out of time
I just want to get it over
Want to get it over
Want to get it over
Want to get it over
Want to get it over
Want to get it over with
