Track Name: And There Is Light
Once upon a time
She had a castle.
Life began
Between her thighs.
Blooming your life
and a voice that
Speaks with the divine.

Fireflies whirl sweetly
Lost in precious time
You need her
You need this
Don’t hold back your mind.
It’s natural to feel this.

Lay your hand
To my head
Checking for a sign
What will it tell you?
Am I alright?

She made a promise
Once upon a time
Secrets heard
Whispered in stars
with a glow so
Close to mine.

I asked and I was given
another try.
This life is not a prison
when there is light.
Track Name: Are You There? (Lullaby For The Living)
Light as air
Swinging down
A comfort breeze
Turned around
Opened up
A music box
The plastic dancer
Twirls like magic

With a quick close
She is shut off
Its quiet now
I don’t hear her thoughts.

Faintly I can
hear her voice.
It gets drowned out
By passing noise
I’m caught up in
If you’re real
Or here
Or there
It was hard
to measure up
To broken dreams
And hard luck
I heard the stories
Time and again
But left it up to
Faith and fear

This old
trinket box
Banged up edges
And Faded parts
Still can sing
when it opens up
the dancer
Still moves
I can see her watch.
The light glares
And it shines
Good as new
It tells the time
I feel her shine.
Are you there?
Are you aware?
Track Name: Somewhere Else
We’ve played with
Violent attacks
Dishonest facts
And adversity
I’m telling you that
Out of this is victory
For you and me
Its dirty honesty.

Leaving behind
People with no names
Unanswered phone calls
Why is it so hard to care?
No rewards for things I do
I wish there was a reason
To stay
but I can’t think anymore.
I have to go.
It’ll never be the same
if I go somewhere else.
Glittering stars
no heavenly scars
Water so pure
You can swim
without worry.
Air to breathe
brings peace
And a song to ease

If I can dream it,
I can reach it.
All there is
Is all I am.
And, I am me.
Track Name: When You Arrive
Falling away
Far from here
Leading the way
Out of weakness

I never want to leave.
One last chance to stop and see
When things don’t go as planned
Meet me on the shores of Wonderland.

By the stream
I follow its time.
whispering past
to connecting stars

There is an end
and a beginning
no way to tell
when it arrives.

Faint pictures
Mixed into space
Return back to me
without a face.

There is an end
and a beginning
no way to tell
when it arrives.

Traced outlines
Rewrite the story
And put a close
To disbelief.

There is an end
and a beginning
no way to tell
when it arrives

There is an end
and a beginning
no way to tell
when you arrive.
Track Name: Sick On Sexy
There’s a break in the pattern.
But, I need another glass
of this thing that matters.
I hope that it will last.

Overfed and swelling
for the slaughter
Why are you so sloppy?
You hope that it will last.

Nothing is the same
still I don’t see any change.
‘cause I’m medicated
Maybe because I’m numb
It’s hard to say.
Still I don’t see any change

Sick on sexy
Weak from the fight
Death of art
Sore with upset
Bitter at power
Dull and wry
Sick on sexy
Weak from the fight

Where is there to go
once you’ve arrived?
Phony smiles, glossy covers
so sweet and contrived.
How many licks does it take
once you’ve bitten right through?
It’s hard to wait.
Enlist your candy-coated crew.
Track Name: Your Gift
What’s good
It’s sweet.
It’s gentle.
What’s good
Open your gift.

An exposed hush
releases held breath.
In this moment
I soar.

Ruffled feathers
drop and recede.
Filled with fire
warmth ignites me.

My heart sings
an untouched grace
flooding the faithful.

I soar.
My heart sees.

What’s good
It’s pure.
It’s honest.
What’s good
Open your gift.
Track Name: In A Fog
In a fog
everything blends
meshing now
beams slip through
formless still
and secure
In a fog
Weaving through

Rough and ready
fighting fire with fire
It keeps me burning
‘til I’m put out.

Pain peeks within
every cell.
I know I’ve
caused it all
and can stop it too.

Mother calls you
to come home
before you brag
about the toys
you left behind.

Sadness washes over
something to hope for.
Unable to describe senses
I just know.
Track Name: Time Out
I painted a picture for you.
You can keep it, only if you want to.
I don’t need any promises from you.
Just keep this, if you want to.

Time out.
Find out.
We were out of line.
It’s fine now.

You know me.
I know you.
Crazy things are easy to misconstrue.
Now I hear
how it sounds.
And, I think it’s silly too.
You know me. I know you.

Things go wrong.
We fall down.
But I’m still walking
I’m still talking
I’m still singing
For you.

Take your time.
Take some time.
You have time.
Take your time.
Track Name: Angel Of Death
If I could hide
it would work.
I don’t want to die
but I need a way out.

Angel of Death
Tells the time.
Lady with a gift
always does what’s right.

It isn’t what I planned.
Have I had a choice?
I wave between
real and pretend.

When it came to me
I sighed relief.
Still more to do.
The grief is new.
Track Name: I Have No Name*
Exhibition of a neutral state
A formless dance
Random laziness
Will you take the bait?

I have no name.
I’m untitled.
Will you notice me
Speaking incomplete words
Maybe you overheard
I have no name

Translate my weight
Discounting things
I need nothing
At this rate
I will remain.
Drain the speed again.
A pestering fray
I decay.

I’ll make you love
My flesh found whole
Directly poured
Non diluted flutter
Absorb through clutter
Nondenominational regret
Taking in all sides

I am what you think I am
Ringing in your ears
I scream disbelief
Do you recognize
Truth conceived
Only through dirty glasses
