(A collection, from across time;
for both the pearls and the swine)
To the walking scar of the eagle star,
You really haven't made it far.
You keep on finding ways to believe
There's reasons you should keep breathing.
From the trees you **** the air,
Stand on life without a care,
**** your waste into the water,
**** away your hopes and bothers.
Grime- and barb-encrusted bone
Without a hole, without a home,
Looking for a frog to kiss since
Fantasy is all that's left
In that body, soul-bereft.
You will die, alone, afraid
Time and again, day by day.
Ripped apart by your sentiments
Out-dated, almost archaic,
You fall from grace, all good outshone
By hate you let flourish and grow
Deep down, rising up to scratch
The surface, and just like a match
You are consumed by your own design,
Blotting out all the lines.
You are alone, and you are afraid.
You know, all of this, you made.
You see what your efforts wrought,
What your neglect brought, what your lies bought.
You will die, alone, knowing
The winds of change will keep on blowing,
Dear star, don't be afraid.
The wings of strange creatures such as you are,
Mangled though they may be,
Will take you somewhere comforting
Push away, on the boat
Lift it up, the sail
Cutting through the gray coat
On the river Fear
Looking for the islands I
Know must be there
Places that I love
Places that I care for, and
The water I must be careful
to stay out of
(That blues horse)
I've been shown to the water
The waters don't flow for me
I've been down to the water
Followed it to the sea
Knew I couldn't stay any longer
When the tides got mean
Maybe we should call a doctor
I tell them not to bother
*** I know I must go sometime
I tote a swag, but I don't slay - em.
I got the cards, but I don't play - em.
You'll never catch me out there ballin'
Never receivin any calls and
I buy them bags, n I don't weigh - em.
I get the bills, n I don't pay - em.
I am not on top of ****, but my
Mind my body soul n spliff are lit, I'm
Losing my mind, hear what I'm say-in?
Don't wanna die, but this ain't liv-in.
Almost everybody seems afraid or angry
Raised not to do as done but what they say
Everything's backwards with eyes open, crazy
Violence and abuse, TV-MA
Stay faithful to the system, they'll change eventually
Tomorrow can wait then, it's just another day see?
It's all in the now, you are the center of the happening.
Turn around, smile with your missing teeth, be happy.
Nothing is perfect, so it all meshes perfectly.
Everything is magic, so nothing's magic technically.
The world branches out based on your understanding.
Love. No locks can withstand the key.
Slop on those
Lay them out
they'll give back
Then I could
so fast, you'd think
I took a bite of
and didn't get away with it.
This is kind of
like Christmas for me,
When all the gifts
are socks and clothes.
But no shoes.
when the food you microwave
is burnt along the surface
and frigid in the center
so you get tired of waiting
and just mix it up
only to find
that doesn't really work
too well., but,
you knew that.
You'll do it again.
Burning diesel so sour,
Coughing up strawberries
For about an hour, now.
The train done wrecked
And the dream went blue,
Look at what these trees are doing to me
Old man Luck never had the roots.
He missed out on many a thing.
He was caught underwing in his first spring,
And so grew used to them walkin boots.
Old man Luck was weighed down
The day that he laid down his
Hopes, and his
Fears, and his
Dragging around him
Those dreams that have bound him
To their cold
I know you've been wondering
why I do... certain things.
You've only seen a little, and
that's apparently all you need.
I won't let you make it
water under the bridge.
No, I won't let it be
what you try to make it.
Can't you see? You're fake,
and those aces up your sleeve
are showing. How ****;
your tricks, foul comments.
You're blowing it.
Bad signs are homing in.
The seeds you've planted
are splitting with cannibals
that know how to flow with it.
Take control of it.
Take responsibility for your deeds,
see the patterns
and quit ******* ignoring it.
Wake me up now, don't leave me hanging
I don't know how it is I'm found
I haven't seen a trace down here
That's why I'm off the ground
Fill my cup, my soul needs arranging
New Feng Shui, maybe silver-plated clouds
Left to climb. Now I'm left hanging
Maybe I should just jump down
maybe one day I'll be
With the special plates
The catchy name
It is a race
"I will cheat death.
Life's just a ride."
Never left behind
I'm losing it.
I'm about to give up.
No I won't.
I can't, anyway.
I'll keep on going,
Blood and guts and
Bones and all,
All over the floor.
I've littered the **** out of
**** near every situation
found myself in;
Throwing up quietly
at the sight of all this
Don't you see?
I'd love to be there.
But for all relative purposes,
I'm not breathing
Body-broken, mind-choked, heart-less monotony
Soul-******, fresh-bled, flesh-less anomoly
Spoiled leftover. Improperly stored meat.
Wolf it down daily. Was it ever sweet?
Tainted courier of a love-less soul,
Bow to oblivion
I'll keep looking but I won't see
Forget about it
I'll pretend I'm something I don't wanna be
Forget about it
I'm everyone in their cars, in their homes, on the streets
I'm everywhere you are, yea I'm everyone you meet
I'll keep listening but I won't hear a thing
Forget about it
To be continued
