Big Beautiful Sky...

 

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

All dressed up in morning's pink ethereal beauty

Can I float up inside a big buoyant bubble?

Glide along your effervescent sky of the colorful kind

Where my soul can rewind and find peace of mind


Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

Let your heavens melt into lavic liquid

Drop divine ecstasy into my soul

Open my 3rd blind eye

Make my 5 senses cry


Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

Middle of the day staring into your blue ocean

How I want to turn the world upside down

Dive deep into your aqua azure endlessness

Swim around inside your vast empty openness


Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

Let your heavens melt into lavic liquid

Drop divine ecstasy into my soul

Open my 3rd blind eye

Make my 5 senses cry

 

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

Day turns to night putting the sun out of sight

So I step outside and wish upon a star

To fly through your magical milky way

Where I would stay forever and a day


Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Big Beautiful Sky

Oh big beautiful sky

 

Let your heavens melt into lavic liquid

Drop divine ecstasy into my soul

Open my 3rd blind eye

Make my 5 senses cry

Bones...


The deep end is where I swim

And if I dive any deeper

I'll surely drown

In an endless pool of emotion


Oh these temporal emotions of mine

They can sometimes overcome me

Like a wave coming at me

Straight out of nowhere


And my bones

Oh my bones

They've grown so tired

Of useless walking

In fields of loneliness

That lead me nowhere

Away from you


The darkness it sees no light

And my bare and broken feet

They walk through it steadily

With help of eyes that are not blind


Oh these hazel eyes of mine

They've seen one too many sorrows

Still they look past the darkness

Right into the light


And my bones

Oh my bones

They've grown so tired

Of useless walking

In fields of loneliness

That lead me nowhere

Away from you


The days they slowly disappear

As the moon swallows the sun

In a river of untouchable stars

That my hands can not reach


Oh these small hands of mine

They have felt one too many days

Slip through the other side of time

Without reason or rhyme


And my bones

Oh my bones

They've grown so tired

Of useless walking

In fields of loneliness

That lead me nowhere

Away from you

California Dreaming...


Colorful cars zoom down highways beeline dancin' trees

Summer leaves laugh at us hitchers hikin' to neverland

Lookin' to find ourselves a brand new home


We're hitchers hikin' thumbin' rides to neverland

We've stuffed all our dreams into vagabond bags

Hopin' to make it in one wandering piece

As we hitch and hike to California dreaming skies

 

California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

And the fireflies are out tonight

Lighting up wishes in the evening sky

Falling stars fall from wishing minds

Falling falling falling from dreaming heads

We're pulling down stars with glowing hands

We're dreamers wrapping light around our souls

 

California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

Everyone's California dreaming

From New York City to Austin

To dreamers lost in Boston

We're hitchers hikin' our way

To California dreaming lands


We're hitchers hikin' our way to neverland

Lookin' for cookies and cake and all that we ate

Before we got stuck between time and fate


One two buckle our shoes three four shut the door

Five six pick up sticks seven eight shut the gate

Nine ten we're lookin' for dreams under our skin

As we hitch and hike to California dreaming skies


California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

And the fireflies are out tonight

Lighting up wishes in the evening sky

Falling stars fall from wishing minds

Falling falling falling from dreaming heads

We're pulling down stars with glowing hands

We're dreamers wrapping light around our souls

 

California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

Everyone's California dreaming

From New York City to Austin

To dreamers lost in Boston

We're hitchers hikin' our way

To California dreaming lands


With all trigger fingers on action

We're shootin' blame outta the way

We're hitchers hikin' thumbin' rides to neverland


No California's not as far as it seems

Just one fast run avoid the burn of the sun

Just one big hop avoid the swoon of the moon

As we hitch and hike to California dreaming skies


California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

And the fireflies are out tonight

Lighting up wishes in the evening sky

Falling stars fall from wishing minds

Falling falling falling from dreaming heads

We're pulling down stars with glowing hands

We're dreamers wrapping light around our souls

 

California dreaming California dreaming California dreaming

Everyone's California dreaming

From New York City to Austin

To dreamers lost in Boston

We're hitchers hikin' our way

To California dreaming lands

Dollars and Sense...


Sometimes I save my pennies

They magically turn into dollars

Other times my pennies disappear

When life stops making sense


Sense of this

Sense of that

Like love

Life makes no sense

No sense at all

Like love

When it disappears

Minus the years


Minus me minus you

Minus the dollars and sense

So I start saving more pennies

That'll magically turn into dollars


Minus this

Minus that

Minus the love

That gave life sense

Sense of purpose

Minus the love

When it disappears

Minus the years


When love makes its presence

Known to me known to you

Is when I stop making sense

Turning my dollars into pennies


Minus me

Minus you

Minus life's sense

When love disappears

That gave life purpose

Minus life's sense

Minus you

Minus me

Double Talk...


Oh I know I'll turn out a better hand

Without any fear of reprimand

If I don't stop to lie or cry

'Cause the dry truth is a sober walk

That requires a lot less double talk

As I put one foot in front of the other

Just like I always do

When life clears out of the way


Even on days that seem to go astray

Inside winds blowing this and that away

I won't stop to ponder the unnecessary

That'll leave me feeling less than wary


Oh I know nothing was ever your fault

It was all caused by that cheap liquor malt

That brought us tender heartache and pain

Under an audacious love that was never feigned


Oooooohhh snippety snap dippety dap

Double talk double talk

Everyone's gotta have a little double talk

As they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone wants a little double talk

When they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone loves a little double talk

While they back walk


Oh I know I''ll turn out a better hand

Without any fear of reprimand

If I don't stop to lie or cry

'Cause the dry truth is a sober walk

That requires a lot less double talk

As I put one foot in front of the other

Just like I always do

When life clears out of the way


So boy you better stop twisting your tongue

Before you get a bad case of black lungs

Then where will you be when you can't speak

While your budding new love is at its highest peak


Sure I know you think you're fat with smart

Causing your supple britches to split apart

As you carelessly think away life in the dark

While clever people play horseshoes in the park


Oooooohhh snippety snap dippety dap

Double talk double talk

Everyone's gotta have a little double talk

As they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone wants a little double talk

When they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone loves a little double talk

While they back walk


Oh I know I''ll turn out a better hand

Without any fear of reprimand

If I don't stop to lie or cry

'Cause the dry truth is a sober walk

That requires a lot less double talk

As I put one foot in front of the other

Just like I always do

When life clears out of the way


Now as we childishly stare out the window

Watching the birds and the bees put on a show

How should I dare to impose it upon you

Will you care to suppose it to be true


Even though our love can never pretend

You'll always remain my brightest diamond

So please remember me on your travels down south

Even after I leave a bitter taste in your mouth


Oooooohhh snippety snap dippety dap

Double talk double talk

Everyone's gotta have a little double talk

As they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone wants a little double talk

When they back walk

Double talk double talk

Everyone loves a little double talk

While they back walk

Dumpster Fire...

You stole your throne
You pawned the crown
Don't turn your head
We'll take you down
Your funeral pyre
We'll burn to the ground

You talk in circles
You flail your arms
Their alternative facts
We'll tear apart
Fake Fox news
We'll trash with truth

'Cause...
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down burn it down
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn let it burn
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down
Burn it down to the ground
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn
Let it burn it down to the ground

You paint your house
You change your drapes
Don't step outside
We'll knock you down
Your funeral pyre
We'll burn to the ground

You spread your hate
You swim in vile
Take your picks
We'll drain your swamp
Build that wall
We'll tear it down

'Cause...
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down burn it down
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn let it burn
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down
Burn it down to the ground
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn
Let it burn it down to the ground

You talk in vain
You wax pathetic
Don't open your mouth
We'll close it shut
Your funeral pyre
We'll burn to the ground

You shred the masses
You divide the classes
Take your hits
We'll punch back
Make your moves
We'll block them all

'Cause...
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down burn it down
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn let it burn
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Burn it down burn it down
Burn it down to the ground
Your mouth is a dumpster fire
Let it burn let it burn
Let it burn it down to the ground

Ghosts...

Shadows undulate on winter ground
Cold cleaves to skin paper thin
Weathered leaves hold onto breaking branches
Tree roots soaked with earthen blood

Sinking into dirt days giving birth
The shallowed earth the hollowed sky
No remains of the day left behind

Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw stones at my heart
Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw bones at my feet
Ooooooooooooooh
Ghosts of past collect dusty photographs
Paste them into time's well-worn scrapbook

Familial discord rings through still air
Lies slowly dissipate unhurried truths
Palms face down fingers spread wide
Empty your hands release the past

Climbing ladders leading to nowhere
A fallowed existence in time
Feeds the dying starves the living

Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw stones at my heart
Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw bones at my feet
Ooooooooooooooh
Ghosts of past collect dusty photographs
Paste them into time's well-worn scrapbook

Your gilded cage held one too many lilies
Orphaned petals fell blew into wistful winds
Scattering of seeds sprouting distance
A future bared on once fertile ground

Silencing nocturnal dreams throwing memories
Life stands still at the edge of nightfall
A slivered moon she hangs threadbare

Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw stones at my heart
Ooooooooooooooh
At the edge of sleep
Ghosts throw bones at my feet
Ooooooooooooooh
Ghosts of past collect dusty photographs
Paste them into time's well-worn scrapbook

Goodbye San Francisco...

I traveled across many bridges of change
Cutting through hills skirting your city
I remember prancing around inside barefoot dreams
That washed me upon your sunlit shores

How the bus rolled on and on until all was gone
As I stared out windows of painted views
Scenery changing channels on a television screen
Love the moon was high and so was I

Yeah those were the days of my misspent youth
When simply living and loving were my truths

Goodbye San Francisco
My time there has passed me by
How I loved you and lived you
With your winding streets wrapped around me
But now it's time for me to say goodbye
Find my soul a brand new home
I don't know when
I don't know where
I don't know why
All I know is that it's time for me to say
Goodbye San Francisco

Your motley home of hippies and love beads
No longer fit my expanding wealth of dreams
And time's not moving as it seems
Inside life's swinging pendulum of needs

Love when I lay my head upon a patch of green
I can smell patchouli wafting through the air
On neverending days when I have no cares
That are way too far and too few between

How I miss the days of my carefree youth
When simply living and loving were my truths

Goodbye San Francisco
My time there has passed me by
How I loved you and lived you
With your winding streets wrapped around me
But now it's time for me to say goodbye
Find my soul a brand new home
I don't know when
I don't know where
I don't know why
All I know is that it's time for me to say
Goodbye San Francisco

You tattooed a rainbow across my heart
When I was young and twisting in the wind
Now it's sad to say though it's the truth
I have long since bid farewell to my youth

Thick skin has grown around my delicate bones
I'm no longer afraid of life's sticks and stones
'Cause they can only break me if I let them
And love lost can only bruise me if I let it

Long gone are the days of my wild youth
When simply living and loving were my truths

Goodbye San Francisco
My time there has passed me by
How I loved you and lived you
With your winding streets wrapped around me
But now it's time to say goodbye
Find my soul a brand new home
I don't know when
I don't know where
I don't know why
All I know is that it's time to say
Goodbye San Francisco

It's a Brand New Year...

It's a brand new year
A fresh parting of the ways
With days of last year's song

Stores are closed the day is long
Birds are singin' bees are buzzin'
The sun's smilin' high in the sky

Do da da du do
Skies stretch blue from me to you
Do da da du do
Your love for me for you is true
Do da da du do
Cinnamon days fill up our nights
Do da da du do
Your sweet love's never out of sight
Do da da du do

It's a brand new year
Butterfly emerges from cocoon
Wings of color red yellow blue

Jasmine sweetly fills the air
Love today has no cares
The sun's smilin' high in the sky

Do da da du do
Skies stretch blue from me to you
Do da da du do
Your love for me for you is true
Do da da du do
Cinnamon days fill up our nights
Do da da du do
Your sweet love's never out of sight
Do da da du do

It's a brand new year
Bid adieu to all that's lost
Say hello to all that's found

Our love is breaking ground
On fertile earth of green
The sun's smilin' high in the sky

Do da da du do
Skies stretch blue from me to you
Do da da du do
Your love for me for you is true
Do da da du do
Cinnamon days fill up our nights
Do da da du do
Your sweet love's never out of sight
Do da da du do

Nascent Truths...

All tangled up in green
Floating beneath the blue
Inbetween earth and sky

Caught up in nascent truths
Arms out hands open wide
Crossing over a great divide

Run to the river
Throw myself in
Run to the lake
Throw myself in
Run to the river
Run to the lake
Run to the river
Throw myself in
Cleanse my soul, free my mind
Leave my past behind

Bound hands counting time

Baptismal waters beneath bare feet
Saints call me to the edge of hope

Oh lord let me drown my sins
Lay my flesh upon this earth
Bare of all that's left behind

Run to the river
Throw myself in
Run to the lake
Throw myself in
Run to the river
Run to the lake
Run to the river
Throw myself in
Cleanse my soul, free my mind
Leave my past behind

Emerge from waters naked soul
Drenched head to toe free from life
To walk upon an unmarked path
 
All tangled up in green
Floating beneath the blue
Inbetween earth and sky

Run to the river
Throw myself in
Run to the lake
Throw myself in
Run to the river
Run to the lake
Run to the river
Throw myself in
Cleanse my soul, free my mind
Leave my past behind

Oh Mother Ocean...

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Wash over me waves of wonder
Take me under rip me asunder
Until I become the unselfish one
When time begun under the luminous sun

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Illuminate my mind
With oceanic wisdom
Turning water into wine

Ooooooh Mother Ocean

Swallow me whole
Deep inside your embryonic soul
Then gestate me out
With your spiral liquid love
Deep into your waters of life

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Open my heart with pure love
Knock down blue walls dividing us
Drown me in oceanic forgiveness
Let us become one under the luminous sun

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Illuminate my mind
With oceanic wisdom
Turning water into wine

Ooooooh Mother Ocean

Swallow me whole
Deep inside your embryonic soul
Then gestate me out
With your spiral liquid love
Deep into your waters of life

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Take me inside the crest of your wave
To ebb and flow with your lunar tide
On my oceanic ride where fears subside
As we become one under the luminous sun

Ooooooh Mother Ocean
Illuminate my mind
With oceanic wisdom
Turning water into wine

Ooooooh Mother Ocean

Swallow me whole
Deep inside your embryonic soul
Then gestate me out
With your spiral liquid love
Deep into your waters of life

Origami Paper Hearts...


Origami paper hearts

Once red like summer roses

Now blue like falling rain


I used to think

One plus one

Equaled two

But me and you

One plus one

Equaled

Two separate

Unfinished

Origami paper hearts

Folded into three


Invisible to your eyes

Our love folded up

Inside origami paper hearts


Origami paper hearts

Delicate to the touch

One tear too much


I used to think

One plus one

Equaled two

But me and you

One plus one

Equaled

Two separate

Unfinished

Origami paper hearts

Folded into three


Arms and legs akimbo

We silently folded up

Inside origami paper hearts


Origami paper hearts

Refolded paper planes

Flew away on errant winds


I used to think

One plus one

Equaled two

But me and you

One plus one

Equaled

Two separate

Unfinished

Origami paper hearts

Folded into three


So the sun disappeared

Folded up into the moon

Inside origami paper hearts

Our Last Goodbye...


On our last goodbye

You delivered

The final kiss

Your lips

Sweet like sugar

Raw brown sugar

To the feel

Course and sweet

To the taste


Our last goodbye

Parting time

Bittersweet

Came and went

So did you

Come and go

Bittersweet

To the taste


Haste makes waste

Parting time

Came and went

So did you

Bittersweet

To the taste

Lonely

To the feel

A missed embrace


Our last goodbye

Parting time

Bittersweet

Came and went

So did you

Come and go

Bittersweet

A missed embrace


No more face to face

Morning afters

Filled with coffee

Love and lox

You I miss

Even long after

The final kiss

Was delivered

On our last goodbye

Paper Moon...

Paper moon paper moon oh paper moon
With scissors reaching stars
I wanna cut you outta the sky
Write a love letter to the night
Fold it up into my pocket
For secret keepsake on days
That roll under the sun
Until night finally comes
With cicadas singing their song
Under the hanging stars

Oh the stars the stars the wishing stars
They hang so bright
Under the paper moon
123 I make a wish
Upon a shooting star
Hoping it'll come true
Before the moon turns blue

Paper moon paper moon oh paper moon
My love letter has been written to you
But I have no one to send it to
Seems you've gone missing
Leaving all the stars wishing
Hanging lonely in the night sky
Black as gold wishes untold
Eyes closed fingers crossed
Hands still reaching for the moon
Hoping to touch the stars

Oh the stars the stars the wishing stars
They hang so bright
Under the paper moon
123 I make a wish
Upon a shooting star
Hoping it'll come true
Before the moon turns blue

Paper moon paper moon oh paper moon
Tonight you're so bright
Lead me with your light
Down time's haunted hallway
Where ghosts of past play
After the sun exits the night
Turning the blue sky to black
Causing my mind to think back
To long gone days of years past
When I reached for the stars

Oh the stars the stars the wishing stars
They hang so bright
Under the paper moon
123 I make a wish
Upon a shooting star
Hoping it'll come true
Before the moon turns blue

Pew of Loneliness...

Aimlessly walking uphill

Breathing in moving stillness

Arms catch wind legs catch fire

Always moving always thinking


Doing getting in the way of being

Caught up in the present moment

The future comes crashing back

When the bough breaks the past will fall


OhOhOhOooooooohhhhh

This city has left me silent

Sitting upon a pew of loneliness

Sins wiredrawn on my past

Too many to count with just two hands


Silence encapsulates the moment

All my worldly possessions

Seem nil to nothing divine

As white candles burn sublime


Wishes wait in prayer boxes

Sought by dollars of the devout

Their future is temporally bought

When the bough breaks the past will fall


OhOhOhOooooooohhhhh

This city has left me silent

Sitting upon a pew of loneliness

Sins wiredrawn on my past

Too many to count with just two hands


Being getting in the way of doing

Silence is broken by waiting sins

Lying still beneath the wanton flesh

Of mortal time and mortal breath


Mother Mary looks beyond

For some Jesus is long gone

Life is empty of sacred song

When the bough breaks the past will fall


OhOhOhOooooooohhhhh

This city has left me silent

Sitting upon a pew of loneliness

Sins wiredrawn on my past

Too many to count with just two hands

Psychedelic Daisies...

Tomorrow walking through morning's breath
Avoid icicles growing out of arctic mouths
Breathing vehemently frozen kisses of death
As they move north take care to move south

Step out of shadow's past move into the future
Bring some lost souls with you along the way
Ride the rainbow of neverending dreams
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

She found a new world through a looking glass
A colorful land filled with psychotropic wonder
Where her heart is allowed to freely wander
Instead of being trapped inside a wooden box

She slid down the rabbit hole of lost dreams
Where her reflection is not what it seems
Forgetting who she was and where she's been
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

Trippin' on sunshine drinkin' down moonshine
Livin' in the everpresent moment sublime
She dances all night with psychedelic daisies
Alice is drivin' her friends totally crazy

Mid-haze crawling through daylight's maze
Halfway lost inside a magic mushroom daze
Undo the Mad Hatter's twisted tongue
That's spinning pinwheels in a field of windmills

Smile sideways like a Cheshire Cat hiding feathers
Keep all secrets locked away deep inside your mind
Never losing backward sight of life's dreams
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

She found a new world through a looking glass
A colorful land filled with psychotropic wonder
Where her mind is allowed to freely wander
Instead of being trapped inside a shrink tank

She slid down the rabbit hole of lost dreams
Where her reflection is not what it seems
Forgetting where she's been and what she's seen
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

Trippin' on sunshine drinkin' down moonshine
Livin' in the everpresent moment sublime
She dances all night with psychedelic daisies
Alice is drivin' her friends totally crazy

Stepping outside into a sea of darkness
Watch out for star-stealing insomniacs
Who tear moonlight out of innocent eyes
While dancing under blackened skies

Turn on your night vision of forgiveness
Thank the cosmic heavens for what's been given
While walking back alleys of invisible dreams
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

She found a new world through a looking glass
A colorful land filled with psychotropic wonder
Where her soul is allowed to freely wander
Instead of being trapped inside an idle past

She slid down the rabbit hole of lost dreams
Where her reflection is not what it seems
Forgetting what she's seen and who she's been
Slipping sideways getting lost in the between

Trippin' on sunshine drinkin' down moonshine
Livin' in the everpresent moment sublime
She dances all night with psychedelic daisies
Alice is drivin' her friends totally crazy

Put Away My Past...

Directionless without purpose
Chasing everything yet nothing
However did I slide back here
I don't know I don't know I don't know

So I search for an answer
But my mind turns up blank
Empty of all truth or reason
Standing inside this passing season

Ooooooh I'll put away my pride
With no hero to save the day
And I'll lay aside my lies
With no villain to take the blame

Yeah I'll put away my past
And lay beside my life
'Cause no matter what the game
The situation remains the same

With a sliver of New York there
And a sliver of San Fran here
Along with a sliver of L.A. there
How the hell did I slide back here

A city of sleeping ghosts
Walking inside their dreams
Living life between the seams
That's always coming undone

Ooooooh I'll put away my pride
With no hero to save the day
And I'll lay aside my lies
With no villain to take the blame

Yeah I'll put away my past
And lay beside my life
'Cause no matter what the game
The situation remains the same

At the flip of a turning coin
I lost the ground beneath my feet
On the turn of a spinning dime
I lost myself on my way home

Did I travel all the way over there
Just to slide all the way back here

The answer's blowin' in the wind
Down nameless streets with no end

Ooooooh I'll put away my pride
With no hero to save the day
And I'll lay aside my lies
With no villain to take the blame

Yeah I'll put away my past
And lay beside my life
'Cause no matter what the game
The situation remains the same

Red Yellow Blue...


Swinging naked from collarbones

Tempted by bare nascent flesh

Come dive in the water's cool

Burning below the boiling point

Liquid lava flowing through veins


The devil plays Russian Roulette

A pearl handled pistol by my side

Sleek and silver to the touch

Always aiming for the door

When the chamber's emptied


Come or go it's your choice

(Red yellow blue)

Leave to stay stay to leave

(Red yellow blue)

Only you will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)

By the color of my sleeve

(Red yellow blue)

So play your blind suit

(Red yellow blue)

Take aim spin the barrel

(Red yellow blue)

Only love will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)


Crawling to the razor's edge

Sweat dripping from fingertips

A turn of the head in disbelief

Somehow back where we started

Without a clue of love's return


Blinded by a distant shadow's relief

Heart seeing what the eyes cannot

Time fading inside the present moment

Soul searching for what the heart cannot

Stars fading above into the night


Come or go it's your choice

(Red yellow blue)

Leave to stay stay to leave

(Red yellow blue)

Only you will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)

By the color of my sleeve

(Red yellow blue)

So play your blind suit

(Red yellow blue)

Take aim spin the barrel

(Red yellow blue)

Only love will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)


Nowhere to run nowhere to hide

This night will passionately end

Silently begging us for another

Inside the calm of this storm

Hearts beating faster walking away


Time laps away at final shores

Fate laps away at the end of us

Every time we part our ways

It begins the end of our days

We spin the bottle to the west


Come or go it's your choice

(Red yellow blue)

Leave to stay stay to leave

(Red yellow blue)

Only you will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)

By the color of my sleeve

(Red yellow blue)

So play your blind suit

(Red yellow blue)

Take aim spin the barrel

(Red yellow blue)

Only love will know

(Red yellow blue)

If it's true

(Red yellow blue)

I think I want you
Like I want chocolate
So give me the sweetest taste
Just to be sure

Du du Du dee Da do
Sweet and smooth in slow time
Red wine dripping from the vine
Savoring one moment at a time
Love I need another taste to be sure

Du du Du du Duu dooo
So when can I see you?
'Cause I miss you like Saturday
Love you like Sunday
Make me blue on Monday
Waiting for our fun day

Du du Du du Duu dooo
Du du Du du Duu dooo
Du du Du du Duu dooo

Scars of Flesh of Blood of Bones...

These holy days they hold truth
In psalms of their wrung hands
Wrung of truth wrung of lies
Wrung of seasonal goodbyes

These holy days they hold truth
Between me between you
Pieces of flesh they don't lie
Pieces of bones they don't lie

Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All flesh has turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All bones have turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
Sinew connects us to the earth
Trails of dust left to follow

These holy days they hold truth
From hollowed sky to shallowed earth
Black crows have given sacrosanct birth
To songs buried deep within the earth

These holy days they hold truth
Upon sacred ground we walk
Our flesh bared to the bones
Our bones bared to the flesh

Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All flesh has turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All bones have turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
Sinew connects us to the earth
Trails of dust left to follow


These holy days they hold truth
Mother got it all wrong
Father sings no more song
Silence is their seasonal hymn


These holy days they hold truth
Our baptized feet bared to the lie
Our flesh scrying for truths
Our bones revealing lies


Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All flesh has turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
All bones have turned to dust
Scattered in the silent winds
Scars of flesh of blood of bones
Sinew connects us to the earth
Trails of dust left to follow

Silent Cocoon...


As I sleep under the moon

Sky breaks open dreams

Hands fall to the earth

Winter slowly breaks me

Out of my silent cocoon


I'm hovering above the earth

Hovering inside sleeping dreams

Above my waking life

Inside this nocturnal stillness

Inside my silent cocoon


Deep inside my silent cocoon

Not even nightmares can wake me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I sleep in the deep of night

Not even broken love can take me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I live in the deep of night

Only spring can birth me

Out of my silent cocoon


As light cuts across the night

Day breaks night in two

When the sun slides into the sky

I sleep inside my silent cocoon

Waiting for day to turn to night


Dandelions hold untold wishes

That are just a breath away

Hidden thoughts blowing in the wind

Inside this waking day

Inside my silent cocoon


Deep inside my silent cocoon

Not even nightmares can wake me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I sleep in the deep of night

Not even broken love can take me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I live in the deep of night

Only spring can birth me

Out of my silent cocoon


As darkness cuts across the day

Night breaks day in two

When the moon slides into the sky

I sleep inside my silent cocoon

Waiting for night to turn to day


Shooting stars fall to earth

Open hands try to catch them

Millions upon millions reaching

Inside this dreaming night

Inside my silent cocoon


Deep inside my silent cocoon

Not even nightmares can wake me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I sleep in the deep of night

Not even broken love can take me

Out of my hovering dreams

Where I live in the deep of night

Only spring can birth me

Out of my silent cocoon

Songbirds...


Oh beautiful songbirds

Fill me in the morning

With songs of paradise

That taste like apples


Under the waking sky

Morning crisp and clear

Mind emptied of yesterday

Except for the taste of love


Oh beautiful songbirds

Sing sing sing me

Sing me your song

Of apples and paradise


Oh beautiful songbirds

Dream me through the day

With songs of paradise

That taste like apples


Under the blueing sky

Ending on rainbows

I swing my worries away

Kicking sand into the wind


Oh beautiful songbirds

Sing sing sing me

Sing me your song

Of apples and paradise


Oh beautiful songbirds

Sing me throuth the night

With songs of paradise

That taste like apples


Under the dreaming sky

Wish upon the moon

My heart goes all a flutter

Putting this day to sleep


Oh beautiful songbirds

Sing sing sing me

Sing me your song

Of apples and paradise

Stillness...


Stillness is broken

By a stone's throw

Ripples break silence

In the calm of life


That's when I look within

To find answers

In the calm of life

To return to stillness


In stillness where I find silence

In stillness where I find answers

In stillness where I find solace

In stillness where I find truth


Stillness is broken

By a gust of wind

Storms break silence

In the calm of life


That's when I look within

To seek solace

In the calm of life

To return to stillness


In stillness where I find silence

In stillness where I find answers

In stillness where I find solace

In stillness where I find truth


Stillness is broken

By a loud cry

Whales break silence

In the calm of life


That's when I look within

To hear truth

In the calm of life

To return to stillness


In stillness where I find silence

In stillness where I find answers

In stillness where I find solace

In stillness where I find truth

The Bruise...


Crush me under your domination

Release me through my submission

To lust's sweetest desires

That lie far beneath our skin


Oh no neither of us can win

Neither of us can lose

When desire takes control

Of the driver seat wheel


The one that you supposedly own

The one that you freely give up

When you wantonly cave in

Cave into your carnal desires


Only to be crushed

Beneath breathless desires

That crushed the sun

That crushed the moon

That crushed us beneath the bruise


Your carnal rage burns beneath

In hidden places you can't see

But you can feel after the sun exits

And the moon dominates the sky


Like you dominate me

Eyes all ablaze with desire

Blindly I follow your lead

Down a road of no return


A road where desires have no end

Like a desert without an edge

Desires so vast that we fall

Fall into an abyss of no return


Only to be crushed

Beneath breathless desires

That crushed the sun

That crushed the moon

That crushed us beneath the bruise

The Past is in the Wind...


The final sun has risen

Upon this year's last day

And along with you my friend

When the past is in the wind


The dandelion will bid adieu

With the blow of a wish

Will or won't it come true

Lies in the will of the wisher


So along with you my friend

The past is in the wind


The final sun has set

Upon this year's last day

And along with you my friend

When the past is in the wind


The minutes will fall like seconds

Fall through time's fickle hands

Fall through my nimble fingers

Fall so fast no they won't last


So along with you my friend

The past is in the wind


The final moon has risen

Upon this year's last night

And along with you my friend

When the past is in the wind


The wishers will wish upon stars

That dreamers ride across the sky

After the day takes a bow

And they fly into the night


So along with you my friend

The past is in the wind


The final moon has set

Upon this year's last night

And along with you my friend

When the past is in the wind


The wishers will still ride horses

Across the sun into the day

The dreamers will still ride stars

Across the moon into the night


So along with you my friend

The past is in the wind

Wings...


Oh beautiful sparrow

I hear you singing in the trees

I see you flying through the skies

Blue skies so wide open and free


'Cause my wings are broken

I'll follow you down the highway

Feet firmly planted in the right direction

And I know that no wrong turn

Can feel as wrong as being here

Where daily discordance drowns my soul


Yeah I know not everyday can be lived right

But there's one too many being lived wrong

And there's too much beauty

To be wasting away days like this

Even with wings that cannot fly


Oh beautiful sparrow

Won't you lend me your wings

So I can fly through the skies

Blue skies so wide open and free


'Cause I just want the days

To feel more right than wrong

As I learn to play my song

My unencumbered soul yearns to soar

Beyond what's in the here and now

To places of undreamt beauty


Yeah I know not everyday can be lived right

But there's one too many being lived wrong

And there's too much beauty

To be wasting away days like this

Even with wings that cannot fly


Oh beautiful sparrow

With mended wings I'll follow your song

Through endless dreaming skies

Blue skies so wide open and free


'Cause I know there's a place

Where I can feel more right than wrong

I just gotta spread my wings and fly

Letting go the fear of unknown

That's led me down the wrong path

When I know there's a right one that'll lead me home


Yeah I know not everyday can be lived right

But there's one too many being lived wrong

And there's too much beauty

To be wasting away days like this

Even with wings that cannot fly

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow...


What should I do where should I go

While uncertainty lingers in the air

Within a future spiraling before me


And if all behind me stands before me

Will today's truths become tomorrows falsities

As I try to understand rather than analyze


Yeah yesterday is but a memory

A candid polaroid of the past

But today hope swims upstream

As I gaze through forgotten eyes

'Cause tomorrow may never come

When all is over said and done


And if love is like a sharp knife to the skin

Does it matter which side of the blade I'm on

'Cause either way still emotions cut deep


When the line was drawn was it permanent

After the morning sky has cleared

And I'm left to ruminate on afterthoughts


Yeah yesterday is but a memory

A candid polaroid of the past

But today hope swims upstream

As I gaze through forgotten eyes

'Cause tomorrow may never come

When all is over said and done


And if I let go of all I truly know

Will there be anything left to hold onto

Except for time's unpromised future


Are all the answers to life's reasons

Found deep in the balance of the seasons

That are passing me by while asking why


Yeah yesterday is but a memory

A candid polaroid of the past

But today hope swims upstream

As I gaze through forgotten eyes

'Cause tomorrow may never come

When all is over said and done
