Time Will Tell.png

Time WiIll Tell

How can you look at me this way
It doesn't matter if I close my eyes
Even then I see your face
With no expression, just those dark dull eyes
We talk as if we're in a race
Your words are first across the finish line
I'm out of breath in second place
you're out the door, no wave goodbye

Goodbye, farewell
As you speed off it's just as well
Goodbye farewell
I guess only time will tell
Na Na Na Na Na

It's been nine days since this took place
It doesn't matter now who is wrong or right
I want a chance to explain
But I see you've been offline for quite some time
Once again I'll try just in case
Maybe your heart breaks just the same as mine
I could just show up to your place
But you would probably ask me for more time

Goodbye, farewell
As you speed off it's just as well
Goodbye farewell
I guess only time will tell

Diving Deep (1).png
American Dream  (2).jpg

Diving Deep

Nothing sounds the same, but does it ever mean the same

 

As I enter the room once more I tap into the pool where ideas flow

And I dive with my head first and I dive in to the sea

For years ago, they were buried deep

 

As I enter the room once more I tap into the pool where ideas flow

And I dive with my head first and I dive in to the sea

From years ago, they will be released

American Dream

 

Through consultation, tainted confession
All that I've ever seen of you
Is this fact or fiction, macho contradictions
All that I've ever seen of you
But so what, you still have all you ever need
But so what, secured your place in history
With power, money, fame, and greed
Is this the new American Dream

Blind congregation what is your perception

All that I've ever seen of you
One sport sensation, model of our nation
All that I've ever seen of you
But so what, you still have all you ever need
But so what, secured your place in history
With power, money, fame, and greed
Is this the new American Dream

 

America, America, will you forever be
America, America, a place for you and me

It's Not you
 

Can you hear me, can you see me sitting here in my blues

I've been lonely, need somebody and I thought it was you

 

It's not you, it's not you

You were so sweet so gentle I've gone completely mental

It's not you, it's not you, it's not you

 

Do you feel me, do you need me

Don't make me spell it out for you

I've been sleeping with somebody and I'm afraid it wasn't you

 

It's not you, it's not you

You were so sweet so gentle I've gone completely mental

It's not you, it's not you, it's not you

 

Had some time work and sort through

I'll lace up my walking shoes

Had some time to work and sort through

While I'm walking off these blues

 

Now I want you, now I need you has it been a month or two

Can you hear me, can you see me singing oh what did I do

 

I'm a fool, I was a fool

You were so sweet so gentle I've gone completely mental

It's not you, it's not you, it's not you



In the Sky

All the songs I should write

All the songs in my mind … should write, tonight, right?

See the moths flying high

Around a light in the sky...fly high, tonight, bright

Alright... you tried

All the little moments, 

don’t quite mean a thing to anyone else but you alone, you alone

All the months I have tried

Traveled roads many nights .. was I right, too right, to lie?

Glass eyes, cracked dry

 

All the little moments, 

don’t quite mean a thing to anyone else but you alone, you alone

 

Time is pulling my arms

Don’t pull, just hold on to life

There’s something more I want...more I want

 

In the sky



Playing Coy

Head spinning round and round

I'm falling to the ground

No way to get on my feet

Dreaming my legs are asleep

It's been hours since I saw any other signs of life

 

So, I'm stuck here feeling like a goldfish in a pond

Constructed by a landscaper and I think his name is Juan

Above me is a bridge I hope to one day cross

I'll float on waiting for an evolutionary loss

 

Then as the sun goes down, the nightmares come

I want to run somehow, I won't get too far

 

Head spinning round and round

I'm falling to the ground

No way to get on my feet

I think my legs are asleep

 

I'm beat up and I think I got kicked in the head

Laying at the bottom to pretend that I am dead

I'll grow back any parts that have need ripped from me

Can't my fins grow back as hands and my tail grow back as feet

 

Then as the sun goes down, the nightmares come

I want to run somehow, I won't get too far

It's been hours since I saw any other signs of life

Leave Me Alone (1).png

Leave Me Alone

 

Leave me alone

here on my own to work through the problems I don’t want to share

Now there you go wanting to know

Trying to show that you’re someone who cares

 

Why is it so easy for you to step right in

 

No, nothing is wrong, oh I’m just fine

No one should pay extra mind to my needs

Now there you go wanting to know if you should stay here or if you should leave

Why is it so easy for you to step right in

 

I need some time, time to align what is right and what is left

Left to my own, acting all grown

Telling myself it won’t be bad

Finding a way to get through

I can only try to say what’s on my mind

I can only try but I think this time

Why is it so easy for you to step right in

Leave me alone here on my own

Club Tropicana

Club Tropicana

(Cool, cool, cool, cool)

Let me take you to the place
Where membership's a smiling face
Brush shoulders with the stars
Where strangers take you by the hand
And welcome you to wonderland
From beneath the planet Mars


Club Tropicana, drinks are free
Fun and sunshine, there's enough for everyone
All that's missing is the sea
But don't worry, you can suntan


Castaways and lovers meet
Then kiss in Tropicana's heat
Watch the waves break on the bay
Oh soft white sands, a blue lagoon
Cocktail time, a summer's tune
A whole night's holiday


Club Tropicana, drinks are free
Fun and sunshine, there's enough for everyone
All that's missing is the sea
But don't worry, you can suntan
Club Tropicana, drinks are free
Fun and sunshine, there's enough for everyone
All that's missing is the sea
But don't worry, you can suntan


Pack your bags
And leave tonight
Don't take your time
Gotta move your feet, don't you miss the flight!

Traveler's Lament.png

Traveler's Lament

The other night I had a dream, we were by the sea

You were standing on the jetty wall staring down at me

I called to you to jump into my arms, but you said no

Because you know that you can’t trust me and you’re scared I dropped you like I did before

 

What if I never let you down

What if I never fooled around

Maybe we’d have done all we had planned

Maybe I wouldn’t be standing here at the bus depot with a ticket in my hand

 

You know I’ve always told stories

That’s just what I do

If art is lie that tells the truth

I guess this songs one too

But life and art are different, you can’t erase the past

Wish I’d known those lines are permanent

Wish I’d known how long the pain I’d drawn would last

 

What if I never let you down

What if I never fooled around

Maybe we’d have done all we had planned

Maybe I wouldn’t be standing here at the bus depot with a ticket in my hand

Maybe we’d have done all we had planned

Maybe we’d have done all we had planned

Brown Locks

Brown Locks 

 

Brown Locks keeping the troubled mind

Together through these pink Pepto Bismol nights

For days and nights of heartburn and heartache

 

Seeing colors for what they truly are 

A reflection of you and a reflection of me

 

I speaking to myself now more than I've heard before

getting used to seeing myself now more than I've seen before

 

It's that simple if your eyes can see

The world can spin till it's blue

dizzying folks from seeking the truth

 what's in their hearts broken pieces and missing parts

keep on building then fall apart

 

I'm speaking to myself now more than I've heard before,

getting used to seeing myself now more than I've seen before

search for the calm inside
where our simple truths hide
behind the wall of lies

Breathe Easier.png

Breathe Easier

 

I used to get high around the way

Climbing peaks from day to day

Sometimes it helped me to breathe easier

Others it wears me out, others it wears me out

 

I used to get by playing games

Lie and cheat to get my way

Sometimes it helped me to breathe easier

Others it wears me out, others it wears me out

 

Any way you look at life some things stay the same,

others are already changing

 

I wish I could fly, wear a cape

Try to exceed this human state

Sometimes it helped me to breathe easier

Others it wears me out, others it wears me out

 

I tried to be sly, jack of fakes,

mastermind schemes and wait for the bait

Sometimes it helped me to breathe easier

Others it wears me out, others it wears me out

 

Any way you look at life some things stay the same,

others are already changing

Still Growing

Still Growing

 

Look, see us walking down the street

Just staring down at our feet

Not looking up for you might see what’s really underneath

 

There’s nothing dirty, nothing cheap about 

Waiting around for the one to be

Then you walked in, my Cheshire grin was all that you could see but

 

Much further away just feeling safe enough to show you my face but

That’s when I knew you were the one for me and I was for you

 

Damn I was shaking nervously

You made your mark 

You cornered me and there I was a scared thin boy with nothing underneath

 

You led me to your place 

We lay face to face and shared our thoughts on life

In that small room I opened up to you and was taken by your charms

Though that was years ago, I still want you to know my love for you still grows

Deep as the ocean blue

A breathtaking view

You’ll move me on and on

La, la, la, la, la

Clear

As the smoke appears,
I think I hear a little laugh inside my head
As I stand here it must be clear
that you won’t take back what you said
It won’t be long
won’t be long ‘til we meet tomorrow
then you will see
you will see that I am right beside you
As the smoke clears
We hear the cheers from those that keep me far from you
As we come near the end my dear
I lie alone here in my bed
It won’t be long
won’t be long till we meet tomorrow
then you will see
you will see that I am right beside you
 
Pill Box
 
Hey baby, driving up the coastline
Top down thinking everything is just fine
Looks around for a stretch of some kind
Hoping for a gold mine, blue and purple sunshineSlows down around curves almost every time
All the branches hanging low seem to intertwine
Getting closer so I think it’s just about time 
Gonna hit a goldmine, blue and purple sunshine
Small, small little pill makes you feel bad
Small, small little pill makes you feel sad
Small, small little pill makes you feel glad
Wish it were the only pill you ever had
Hey baby weaving through the hillside
Hair blowing takes a drag just to unwind
Finally gets around to asking me, “What’s the time?”
Or was it, “what’s your sign…” Forget it never mind
Not sure but I think it’s half past midnight
Pulling over to the shoulder nothing in sight
Let’s just crash for a while, “You think that’s alright?”
We’ll watch the waves fight,the reflection of the sunlightSmall, s
mall little pill makes you feel bad
Small, small little pill makes you feel sad
Small, small little pill makes you feel glad
Wish it were the only pill you ever had
 
Walking the Line

Walking the line between the girls and guys
You don’t know why you feel like you have to try
living outside what you know,
fighting inside for control
seems hard enough let alone 
someone should find out
Now is your time among the girls and guys
Take time to find whatever you come to like
Allow yourself to embrace all those you 
catch in the chase
You’re straying farther from the pack, still hear them calling you back
When you look back for the line it will be washed away from sight
Now you don’t have to hide
The doubts ran from your mind ahead it seems so bright
 
Daisy Miller
 
sweet discovery is upon me
the graying sun shines upon me
soft incurable demise baby’s skin is bound to see
she made an impression upon me
she lighted fools and fantasies
we’re not what we used to be
so let us kiss and be free
while our skin is unashamed and our eyes can see
i'll go where she goes
slip inside her dark world
somewhere to stay still, somewhere to go
turn off the light as i close the door
swimming, dancing, singing
i'll go where she goes
without warning comes the folly of life
giving death to such a pretty child
that she might become a martyr, too
so sorry little princess
sorry mother, too
 
In My Mind
 
I don’t want to be lonely, I don’t want to be blue
Sometimes I think only about you
There are days when I stray in my mind you would find,
but only if you understood, I could be true
Like you don’t even know me, who is playing the fool?
This time it’s not only about you
There are days I’m afraid what you’d find in my mind
but only if you’d understood I would be true
There are days when I strayed in my mind I would find
But only if you understood I could be true
 
Kristine

When blackbirds rain down on this town
chasing lovers through the streets
you're the only one I want to run with
and clouds take station on this mind
you make it easy to believe
the sun will do what the sun can do
the sun will do what the sun can do
Kristine
my hope is tall and green
the roots lift up the sidewalks in the place we’re meant to be
and scatters through the leaves
inspired by credence in your golden breeze
When these pages lay bare
your ink flows so free
you’re the sound of my voice before I can speak
and poems lose their footing 
slipping helplessly to the sea
you extend your hand like a friend in need
a friend and so much more to me
Kristine
you know what I mean
you’ve heard it in the wind too many times to act naïve
nature calls to thee (need help with that line - sounds like she has to go to bathroom)
It’s been too long since days were light and night suspended dreams
I’ve seen you happy
you don’t even have to try
and when you weep, you shed such beautiful tears
love will always make you cry
When clouds take station on this mind
you make it easy to believe
the sun will do what the sun can do
the sun will do what the sun can do
Kristine
my hope is tall and green
the roots lift up the sidewalks in the place we’re meant to be
and scatters through the leaves
inspired by credence in your golden breeze
 

 

Let it all go
 
You’ve said it all
All of the upsets and triumphs you had
And now here I am, your second chance
At making the most of all your dreams that you can
Could it be wrong, your living through me this way
Could it be wrong, if I gave up my place
We’ve got to start by letting things go
I’ve lived it to
the days when I wished for something else to do
and now here I am, almost a man
but not quite the same as was expected from you
Could it be wrong, your living through me this way
Could it be wrong, if I gave up my place
We’ve got to start by letting things go
Let it all go, now is the time we ought to live for
Let it all go
I used to wonder if I was wrong
For trying to go off on my own
Hope you understand, it’s not your plan
But with or without you, I’m going to be who I am
Could it be wrong, your living through me this way
Could it be wrong, if I gave up my place
We’ve got to start by letting things go
Let it all go, now is the time we ought to live for
Let it all go
 
Dreamy Sleepers
 
Wake up every morning
Think of ways to pay, pay off all my debts
Wash the sleep away, 
And I still see the thoughts that linger from last night
Spending my days counting the people who kept me up
I know they sacrificed for me and helped with my dreams
When they could’ve been doing all sorts of thing I’m sure
I’m sure they dream of (dream, dream, dream)
Wonder when I’ll be able to show you how grateful I am
I don’t know when, I can only say I will, I will
But sometimes 9 to 5 bring the dreamy sleepers nowhere but down 
So low that nothing can touch us
Nothing can make it easier, nothing soothes
Long live the dreamy sleepers
Goodbye to the 9 to 5 weepers
I gave my word and I’ll be the keeper
Long live the dreamy sleepers
 
Nice Try
 
Let us get through another of guessing what to say to each other
For me and you, sometimes we find it hard to communicate with one another
So here I am to tell the truth
I can’t keep hiding this from you
We were never meant for each other
It looks as if we’re going through
This drama of breaking up in two
We need some time from one another
Hey nice try, no you can’t come over
I think that we both need some time
What’s wrong with you, you’ve got me all confused
you’ve opened me up, now you won’t bother
So here I am calling to you
Let’s work this out and start anew
Instead of hurting one another
It’s easy when you cannot see
The pain you’ve caused on someone’s face
The shaky hands, the drying breaths
The slowness of their tears
Hey nice try, no you can’t come over
I think that we both need some time
 
Lover

There was no way of knowing if one day you’d be mine
But there were certain reasons for our misunderstanding
I spent all our time lying
Lover you’re the last one that I want to fight
Though it seems that I’m lost to you tonight
And you’re gone faster than I can come
Faster and faster from the ones you feel are all up on you
Lover, I should’ve know that you would leave
Lover, now that you’re gone I’ll never see
There is no way of telling you during this time
Instead now you will linger here on my mind
Oh lover you’re the last one I wanted to fight
But it seems I’m lost to you tonight.
Lover, I should’ve know that you would leave
Lover, now that you’re gone I’ll never see
From the ones you feel are all up on you 

 
Palavra
 
As I awoke my head was pounding
Lilac still thick on my breath
And all the thinking I said I wouldn’t do
Came rushing back to my heart and my head
Reminding me underneath a tree
is no place for me to dream
Sister, you’re a spark if ever one has burned me
Sometimes you got to be alone
Oh but look who’s talking and talking
Saying all the same saccharin lines I used to use
While you just sit there wishing for anything new
And I don’t blame you anymore
Mon amore no more
Tracing your rose petal curves like a sweet drunken history
Your mind grows sleepy as mine, mine grows misty
You don’t have time to heed this one man’s palavra
But something is telling me maybe it’s not my fault
It’s not my fault
that your beauty sleeps with its secret
Sister, the time is growing nigh
Judging from the weltering sun
And the clouds in your eyes
Come on, you and I are made of wishes
Soon we’ll awake on a hard patch of grass
Time will forget us
I will tell you everything
but I’ll say whatever it takes to make it in your world
because my heart yearns for something more
Mon amore no more
 
Wingspread
 
How can we fall this way again?
When will all this come to end?
Flying boys are in the skies
One more time as they decide
What if they’re wrong will we be all right?
How much will it all cost in the end?
How many lives will we have spent?
As con-men try to justify
searching for who’s on the other side
What if they’re wrong will we be all right?
 
Secrets
 
Secrets of a dancer
Full of memories or lies?
You can almost see the answer
Hidden in darkness just behind her half-closed eyes
She thinks about her future as her dreams start to unfold
Laid out and draped around her
Heavier and heavier than years and years ago
Her life before is just a mystery
But every time she got on the stage
She gave her all…
Secrets of the dancer
What lies around the bend?
As the final curtain lowers
Will she bow out gracefully or keep on dancing till the end?
The last time that we saw her 
Was to be her final show
We showered her with flowers
She was smiling as she looked up to the colored rays above
how far do we go?
Her life before is just a mystery
But every time she got on the stage
She gave her all…
How far do we go?


Entertainer
oh so simple, tons of potential
let it all go, give them a show
oh so raw, sharp around the edges
but don't hold back, they want a show
 
Oh crowd pleaser, excellent reader of the people you watch so ever closely
 
oh big teaser pretend the moments longer at last second you go away
 
oh so simple I come over 
and you take my money and run
Oh I saw the way you moved around 
you tried to play it off like it was nothing

Oh full time pleaser, excellent reader of the people you watch so ever closely
you're not a wonder you're a miracle but the magic you work is so very strong on those you meet
 
Souled 

Could it be that we already souled it
Who is it that sells there soul to the devilfor a moment of nothingness
we are already born
Souled, Souled Souled
 
Could it be that we already souled it
A sellout who sits and waits for his demise and a capitalist who waits spending her time and a humanist who helps himself by helping others we are already born
 
Could it be that we already souled it
Who is it that sells there soul to the devil for a moment of nothingness
we are already born
 
Souled, Souled Souled
We are already born
and nothing will ever change
 
That One Thing
TBA
 
Recycling Glass

Smooth it over and give us another chance now since we have given two to you brush it the side if we would have known this would never have happened to you this was the end in more ways than one, and all the empty bottles since the day you begun

The tiniest words as they sink in deep each time we come to you oh... you can't have it your way when everyone comes to you this was the end in more ways than one and all the empty bottles since the day you begun
this was the end in more ways than one all the emptiness you had, since the day that you began
 
To think I know how you feel is the toughest thing for me to take we're always saying things and babe that's our big mistake this was the end in more ways than one and all the empty bottles since the day you begun

Third Party Call

I'm called upon to prove my faith 
our purpose is now doubtful made
but my sorrow is sincere times three if you love me 
 
Leave for another day my Orphan Annie prophecy 
 
Your likeness of me is only part right Marigold, let me fuck you tonight 
your eyes are red and so very tired, Marigold 
 
In either case I'll be at your side 
singing to your hearts delight



 


Star Crossings 
The things I have seen in your eyes
they keep some of us hypnotized with cold feet
I'm standing outside 

I'm waiting for you tonight 
I dream of you all of the time 
you come and take me for a ride
with stoned feet I'm standing outside 
for you to come for me tonight 
I look for a star shining bright 
and hope that it's your burning lightt
he night ends and you're not in sight 

I'll rest and come back out tonight 

Close Your Eyes

Stay awhile good friends,
I can see the stars in your eyes 
didn't we once have the time, 
so please don't say good bye 
just close your eyes stay with me tonight 
 
Hell I didn't know it'd come to this 
started out like my first kiss 
don't you know that deep inside 
It breaks my heart everytime you say good bye just close your eyes stay with me tonight 
 
please don't say good bye 
and be free tonight 
just close your eyes 
don't close your mind 
take a chance stay with me and be free tonight
 
Mute Love

She has a streak in her no one can deny it's the way she uses her hands
every night around nine

She wishes to show her love
for the boy who can't talk
and he wishes there was some way
he could yell the word "stop"
 
He walks the streets alone while she is gone signing, waving around, and carrying on
 
He wishes to show the town
that he feels put down and he wishes that he could tell his love without making a sound but she says, "I can't say we argue because he doesn't talk
 
He must love me, because it's me
when his clothes come off
 
She received a sentence for 9 years given to rot she lies there silently in the day and the night now he finally shows the town as he's being put down and he wishes for his love to hurry and die
 
but she said, "I can't say we argue,
because he doesn't' talk and he must love me because it's me when his clothes come off."
 
I said, "I can't say we argued, since he never struggled and he must love me because it's me when his clothes come off." but she said, "I can't say we argue, because he doesn't talk"

Top of the Heap

Exit wounds taken at face value no more clear signs of life
we are obesessed with driving craving the feel of the wheel
maybe we're all getting to where we want to go, I don't know
We all got to get to where we want to go, you know?

Our technology, a latch key child of this world we claim
We are the acting surrogates going along for the ride we're obsessed with driving, going along for the ride
Sinking into the ground as if we are born to ride with no signal for turning around
As we pull away remember this,

We've all got to get to where we want to go
Maybe we're all getting to where we want to go, you know?

Just when you need it the most you let it go
the heat was strong I guess, now I know
There are times when I wish I could walk out of here
I dont have it in me
Just as I left the post I knew more were to come
In packs of 3 or 4 every few minutes or so
I walked away for awhile for I can't remember, no I don't know
I don't know

I been waiting for some time like fool at this table I guess I have been running late
put me at a table with a bottle full of wine I don't want to miss you, but what if I missed you

(Just when I need you most a quote came to mind,
but I so very very tired of waiting)

Would I be lonely, would I be bored without you, I guess there's only one thing left to do.

WALK

Just when you need it the most you let it go
the heat was strong I guess, now I know
There are times when I wish I could walk out of here dont have it in me

WALK



US

The lifeline is the white strip on the freeway 
it's a journey on wheels throughout America 
and we think we are as important as the stars who can't see us looking
but remember they tell us where we are ...

on the road to conquer the world but we have yet to conquer ourselves 

All things matter on where your facing? 
Looking out...looking into my new skin 
and you think we are as important as the stars who can't see us looking 

but remember the tell us where we are on the road to conquer the world 
but we have yet to conquer ourselves

Let us point inward and aim
 
Down in Denver
 
Until he was gone again 
Saving everything but this house they carry 

Fall down in Denver, down in Denver 
all I did was die what came after was a man walking by

He laced and decided he knew what there was and with the words made from a song, he let me sing on and on,
on and on, until he was gone again
taking everything but this world they carry 

Fall down in Denver, down in Denver 
all I did was die look behind you for the answers to life she looked back and decided she knew what there was 
and with the words made for a song 
she let me sing on and on, on and on, until he was gone again taking everything but this world they carry 

Stay Up
 
Ready or not the time has come for us to hand all our sins to the fiery sun and if I do what will I see?
he said, you must not be afraid and then he said to me 
 
stay up, stand up and watch the stars fall in the early, early, morning or the late, late night 

The very next day dark clouds appeared I had to pull mysel together, felt the end was near 

He said, "Open your heart and maybe you'll see" told me to, "look up at the sky and then you shall be free" 

stay up, stand up and watch the stars fall in the early, early, morning or the late, late night

I dropped to the ground in amazement, I knew he was guiding me through every little thing that I dreamed it was now could all be true 

stay up, stand up and watch the stars fall in the early, early, morning or the late, late night
 

Happyface

I feel it too, there's no need to tell me 
your body says it all, it says your tired 

well I'm tired too and some things never change but if you go I won't forget you no solution will offer itself 

just remember you picked me up right as I was about to fall off
the fuckin face of the world 

I was too desperate to turn down such an offer, opening mouths and covering ears you leave me stranded downwind 

I'm left no choice but the wade upstream was fun to stay afloat is all I want to do, with or without 
you now there's a scent in the air and rain is coming soon I know exactly how to feel...tomorrow 
I know exactly what to feel, exactly how I'll feel tomorrow
yeah tomorrow
