Lyrics

Note: These songs appear on my album World News, with the exception of The Wedding Song,  written for Lynn and Mark's wedding.

 

GONE BYE
 
Lives lay forfeit for all our ills /for all the sin all the thrills /for potential unrealized /good people criticized Sunshine's growing cold /as young promise turns old /friends well met then forgotten /lives lay forfeit for what we've begotten
 
Distilling life's poisons as they should /drinking long and hard like Rimbaud would /prophets & poets voice's, in the wind /in whose passing, some hope should spring /What little hope they have left /must be passed on rather than spent /although they could keep it as a treasure /and maybe enjoy life's simple pleasures
 
But their revelry would not last long /And what hope they had would soon be gone /then they would have nothing left to spend /to ransom the lives of acquaintances and friends /Distilling life's poisons as they should /drinking long and hard like Rimbaud would

 

WORLD NEWS
 
Kurt Cobain blew his brains out last night /I guess he couldn't take his world of pain /and even though he ate a shotgun, /its springtime in Seattle just the same /World News /World News
 
And they're hacking up priests in Africa/cause they're pissed off about the past /and digging up bodies in someone's back yard /but somewhere some place the flooding has stopped at last /World News /World News
 
The world's a fucked up place no doubt/like good food forgotten left to spoil /it's cooking the hearts of lovers and poets /while the masses are left to mindless toil /World News /World New

 

SEARCHERS

Dogs and Gods and little ones/planes and trains, sweet water flows. /there's this world seen and others sensed /the need to fight and take flight and dream

Seek clarity but do not search /for searching voids the goal /listen to your heart /in order to be whole

Dreamers, dream and beggars beg/but do dreamers beg or beggars dream /there's Kings and queens and jesters still /there's knights and fools and smithies fires too /There's pain and awareness and pleasure too /there's stress and boredom unrelieved

Seek clarity but do not search /for searching voids the goal /listen to your heart /in order to be whole

Young love burns intense while /old love lasts...it seems /Nonsense scribbled on a yellow page /to help explain yet further confuse /clarity cannot be sought, it must come to you /clarity cannot be sought, it must come to you

Seek clarity but do not search /for searching voids the goal /listen to your heart /in order to be whole

 

A WEDDING SONG

When two people love each other/and decide to live as one/Forsaking all for each other/They approach the alter in love/Today is a wedding day/Today two hearts are one/Separate paths coming together now/they share the same road.

And we are fortunate to find a soul mate/ In this wide and jumbled world/and more fortunate still to be loved by this person/and join together as one/We will share our joy and our sorrow/from this day forth we are one/We will attend the feasts life has to offer us/Our partnership is real

Today is a wedding day/today two hearts are one/separate paths coming together now/they share the same road/When two people love each other/And decide to live as one/Forsaking all for each other/They approach the alter in love

 

A  VOICE IN THE WIND

Listen to me, as I speak prophecy/ I am,a voice in the wind/ You see, acts of charity/ I see, hints of grace/ We are a race that is, steeped in duality/ we are the worst, and the best/ caught between, stability and transcendence/ a race of kings, and fools/ You say, we are suffering/ I say, save yourself/ you say, its not fair no more/ I say, it never was

You say, save me/we are suffering I say, save yourselves /there is no God, or government to guide you so/ you must, guide yourselves /But there's a gate that's, lying open/and if you're fortunate, you'll walk in /enter a courtyard of peace, no pain no suffering /no avarice, ego or hate.

You say, we are suffering /I say, save yourself /You say, its not fair no more I say/ it never was

 

I have a ton of lyrics and will change this page as the mood strikes me.
