Going inside and out
Compression to stretching
Something like breathing
Who's playing this squeezebox?
Can I make a request?
Play something lively, loud, and fast
My heart's tied in knots
My brain's hanging on
By the skin of my teeth
For the length of one song
Dance like you're dying
And dance like you're dead
Life is little more
Than a song in your head
Break down the walls and let it all in
Dance as if this moment will never end
Move to the rhythm and jump towards your soul
Suspended stringless puppet under no one's control
Fall down to yourself right on top of the beat
Spinning in the center of where all the lines meet
Slow it down for the break and take a deep breath
Potential energy buildup for what's coming next
Those chills in the moment right before it all hits
Soul, body, and mind caught up in the mix
Hear it; explode
Supernovate the senses
The death of a star amid a galaxy of faces
To be born again
In a jet stream of limbs
I find enlightenment at 150 bpm
like monuments, we will soon become rust,
ponderous and proud, made royal
by the antiquity of air.
dust is dynastic. the silt that bore
the bones and viscera of fish
was not laid by mothers, yours or mine.
we’ll forge our complex ziggurats
from the irons in our several souls.
they’ll be as old, i think, as the hills
and vertebral faults of this planet.
They say that your eyes are the windows to your soul
But these deep blue eyes are a miss interpretation of mine.
Because you’ll never know what I feel inside
Or when I choose to lie
When I say that I’m alright.
For those words have fooled so many
Even when I feel like screaming help me
Oh it’s ironic
How life goes on
When mine is crumbling down all at once
Is it okay to fear the next days dawn?
And how it forces me to carry on
When all I want to do is just sleep the pain away
And run to where I feel safe
And I've tried that so many times
But never get very far
So don’t be so naïve to believe
What you see
When you look at me
For I am broken…
Just. Like. You.
She swore all was fine;
Thought she was alright.
Sure, some days were dark--
At times, there was light!
The light came and went,
like a Christmas tree.
Fooled by the flashes,
She dreamed she was free.
And, so, one by one,
each light faded out.
Soon there was nothing;
Abandoned with doubt.
Desperate and alone,
In search for light missed,
All she could find were
more scars on her wrist.
I wonder how it'll go
or, who'll write it ,
I don't know
But I want you to be there,
when they bury me in the cold ground,
Alone and forsaken
Aloof from your world
A world I could never be a part of
A world parallel to mine
And so I would want you there,
for one last time
but not with your family or wife
Just the two of us ..like old times
"Just the two of us"man , how come you made a corpse cry?
And I don't know about afterlife
as this is the first time I'll die
pardon my illogical line ,
I did it for a smile
I wish we could die together ,
and have you there by my side
and go through eternity side by side
or be born again ..and be able to make you mine this time
but for now, this world needs your pure soul , and warm smile
so just promise me this ..you won't abandon my grave? (like you abandoned my life)
and visit me ,at least once or twice..or maybe not as you've your own life
(and a family and a wife)
but if you do visit , i hope my epitaph makes you smile
as it'll go like this
here lies the girl who never moved on like you did"
If you’re not sorry, I’m not sorry
let’s get drunk
let’s get fucked up
let’s forget our names
let’s go swimming in the river
let’s freeze our asses off.
this world, this world, this world
it’s too big for us and we love
disappearing in it.
If you’re not sorry, I’m not sorry.
we’ll write a song using only those words.
we’ll sing it loud and out of tune around a campfire
and watch our friends kiss the wrong people.
I wanna die smiling.
I don’t care when, I just want
it to be doing something I love.
I want it to be with you.
But promise me you won’t be around when I get boring.
promise me we won’t even talk about it when
we have to go our separate ways.
one of us will wake up and we’ll just feel it.
we’ll just know.
that’s how I want this to go.
A song with only a chorus.
no bridge, no fade out.
just a steady tune that doesn't get tired.
I wanna know what the air smells like in Nevada.
I wanna see it all.
If you’re not sorry, I’m not sorry.
let’s stop talking.
keep this song on, it’s my favorite.
I want to know her
I see her smile in the darkness
I want to feel her like no one else can
Her voice is intoxicating
I absorb her every word
She pours me another glass
We sit and jabber about meaninglessness
A caged animal howls inside my head
It wants out
It wants to taste the flesh
It wants to chew the sinews that hold the muscle to the bone
It wants to test the heart
She sits there in herself and the time
She sits there like a rabbit in the grass
Unaware of her surroundings
The beast unleashed
Drunk on the night and the moment
It takes its chance
Then lays back down
Its victim confused and intact
I see you see me through the seams and beams of time and space
Long-Haired tall pale one
I acknowledge your efforts to communicate with me telepathically
Telling me about a world within a world
that on this Earth there is a space
which is a haven for light beings and truth seekers
in this world threaded with beams and bolts
where evil is spread like chewing gum
where man is turned into sheep through dumbing rum
I see you sitting on a cliff
in a world stars and skies away from ours
I heard you say that buildings would fall
I heard you say that beings from under would stand out
I see your hope for the human race
and if the Divine still believes in us we have a place
But this is a fight that must be fought with spirit
Weapons are merely instruments to destroy figments of chaos
the true instruments are in the heavenly basement
where worlds were dreamed
and it started with a band you see
big bang the virgin void opening
polarization with a band member rebelling
and a universal game created
and galaxies were governed
councils were formed and there were uniforms
hybrids created to mediate
across the planes, planets colonized
some beings unevolved and lost destroy, others preach the Law Of One Rise
orgasms or star dust
an interaction of fusion far beyond our understanding
it was music that began it all
harps and all strings, the rainbow piano
it started with a band and science calls it a bang
but merely a climax as worlds are created within the creation continuum
and the greatest message from the long haired tall one: "Speak the truth, find your whole, defend the music for for your race it is home".
you are laying beside me
and my hand is splayed like a starfish
across your chest
I can feel the ocean in my fingertips
I turn to you,
sweet and innocent lines,
with all the world behind you,
all the demons, death, distress, darkness.
To you I believe what I say is true.
What I thought one else should know,
only you do.
I write upon your open body,
embrace it as a woman’s lips,
the ink of my veins called forth from inside,
the bottled hopes brought to land
by low tide.
A tiring sensation delivers my life
into a realm of seeking for a new unknown.
Do not leave me as others do.
Stay by my side as dogs do.
Stay upon me like clothes upon the wealthy.
