Anywhere

– Dust –

The city strange without you in it

I still call it home.

Your face devoid I view it different

Still see it on my phone.

I tread familiar streets

The night a lonely dark

Passing cars with captive passengers

Makes me wonder why, at times

We do this thing at all…

Stardust David’s stone we hurtle on

Flesh and fortune, new religion

Pluto’s spoils toll the loss

This is only the beginning…

The magnitude of love I lost

I breathe the very air.

Neon dripping bleeding heart

equaled only now in frost.

Goodbye my love, my dear, my darling

Of things I cannot bear

The numbered thoughts I cannot keep

Head deep in showered hair

I cannot sleep, and when I do

The sleep is nightmare games

My head abuzz with demon lust

The son that never came

Tell me what it is you want,

To build it up, or watch it burn

Don’t you know that we’re all Dust,

And to Dust we shall…return

– Sleep –

If you think of me, I want to you to know

That I think of you, think about our home

If you think of me, then I will be here

When I think of you, I’m sitting out a year

I can’t sleep without you here

In my dreams is everything I fear

Soaked in bitter orange, through the window,

Do you wonder what it’s like, in the wooded glow

Stale warmth of cotton heaving in wind

Taste that I’ve forgotten, Anna take me in

I can’t sleep without you here

In my dreams is everything I fear

Gravel waves go under toe

Somewhere back we parted paths

To walk the future here alone

I hope to fall between the cracks

I can’t sleep without you here

In my dreams is everything I fear…

– Another –

I’d write another song if I thought it would help

Pale blue eyes, miss you like hell

This isn’t fair, but life really isn’t

Advice from friends, about fishing

I’m so alone, couldn’t tell you what day it is

Sold my phone so that I could buy medicine

Didn’t ask for you hand, tell you the time

Felt the wind blowing round in your mind

And it goes, oh, oh

And it goes, oh, oh

And it goes

A cat called courtesy eats me alive

Bird in a cage, weep as you fly

I hear voices, but no human sound

Show me the world turning around

Shattered windows of sapphire glass

Love of a diamond watching light pass

Beauty betrayed in artifact

Signals dance through softened black

And it goes, oh oh

And it goes, oh oh

And it goes

Words deep with stares, truth stolen in glances

Love speaks for hate, the former romances

Eve’s naked eye robed in a dream

Shining in moments we cannot see

All mothers weep, lies bled from her lap

Depths of emotion written on maps

Love is poetry love is show

It comes, and it goes.

And it goes, oh oh

And it goes, oh oh

And it goes

And it goes, And it goes

 – Anywhere –

If love falls in a forest

And no one is around

To remember what’s forgotten,

Does it make a sound?

A reel of tape one of a kind

To grieve the saddest fate

Lit aflame on decks of time

Light upon her face

To ask the sky what shakes the floor

Was she ever there?

Cloudless breath I fell instep

Her satin glow I wore

Oh-Oh, I’m here

Oh-Oh, I am anywhere

Inseam of souls a dreamless peace

I wandered not I cared

Through veiled love and broken mist

To lay a body there

Away my spirit lost in fate

My mind an empty thing

Thoughts fly above I hear their wings

Alone to vindicate

Oh-Oh, I’m here

Oh-Oh, I am anywhere

Away away each passing hour

Prostrate to father’s hand

Had you heard the sound at all

Maybe you’d understand…

Oh-Oh, I’m here

Maybe you’d understand…

Oh-Oh, I am anywhere

Maybe you’d understand…

 – Everyone –

As I age and grow away

Winter mind takes seed

Old memories die slow

Under sun again are green

Feel The fall before it happens

Reaching out for soul or sand

See, the words as they die passing

Not but skin or empty hands

Everyone I know is changing

Everything I know, I don’t

In the darkness feel his heat

Not dead but never been

In black the hearth is stoked

In clear cold waters swim

From the outside looking in

Shouting at my face

It’s time to start, and start again

But I didn’t walk away

Everyone I know is changing

Everything I know, I don’t

– Err –

To say there is no truth.

Is to say there is no time.

You say there is no God

No beauty, love, or rhyme

What is life without blood?

Sung in joyless rage

And so we fight, the futile war

We exist to wage

We all want love.

What does it mean to give? (care)

We all want love.

What does it mean to live?

(To human is the err)

Hidden smiles with the good

Happiness is fleeting

Even keel for the bad

Heavy rains are quick retreating

I had the clues but not the feeling

I even wrote them down

An empty sea within my eyes

The light that was has drown

We all want love.

What does it mean to give? (care)

We all want love.

What does it mean to live?

(To human is the err)

There behind the tortured bow

But I can’t feel what you do

Ahab knew the hunt would kill him

I try but I can’t show you.

We all want love.

What does it mean to give? (care)

We all want love.

What does it mean to live?

(To human is the err)

 – Ghost –

Know your ghosts don’t be afraid

Know your ghosts, they’re here to stay

Know your ghosts, don’t make a sound

Know your ghosts, take a good look around.

Keep the TV on, or don’t sleep at all

In the dark, shadows are watching you

Stay in bed, keep the curtains drawn,

Sleep all day nobody is waiting.

Know your ghosts don’t be afraid

Know your ghosts, they’re here to stay

Know your ghosts, don’t make a sound

Know your ghosts, take a good look around.

My father has always been a martyr,

But his father was never there.

My mother’s love pours out like water,

Spirit of God wash away my care…

Oh………..

All dressed down

With nowhere to go

Sit and watch the days as they pass

The year is chasing my money away

Take another sip from an empty glass.

Know your ghosts don’t be afraid

Know your ghosts, they’re here to stay

Know your ghosts, don’t make a sound

Know your ghosts, take a good look around.

 – Water –

Steal my, mind for a moment

Stranger, warming my bed

To-day, calling me home

This time, I’ll never forget

In rain, walking on water

Lifetimes, running behind me

Their love, the wind at my back

Feel it, pushing me forward

Their love, is all I have left

Can’t touch a miracle…

In rain, walking on water

 – Time –

It’s always happening

Shadows on a screen, cardboard figurines

Faces painted on a wave

Projections lining up in space

Extending out in two dimensions

We exist

In our plane a lone regression.

Limitless

Oh-oh, a chair in the rug

Oh-oh how are you feeling love?

Perfect in its imperfections

Any Time

Finite moments pure elation

Over life

Things I can’t explain, far greater than the things I can

I am within, I am without

Feeding into my frustrations

Why do we lie about..?

Oh-oh, a chair in the rug

Oh-oh how are you feeling love?

First hand to ever make a choice

Out of the valley, guided by a voice

I know where my road will end

But this was the first time I could see where it began.

Tell me how good it feels to breath.

Am I dying or just falling asleep

In here everything is born

The paper on the present package torn.

I can scarcely say it how I see it

I can barely feel what I am feeling

A simple portrait slipping through my mind

I could do it, all I need is time.

A chair leg in an old checkered rug

The fabric of everything I have loved

Time pushed up against the wood

I would stop it right there if I could.

Oh-oh, a chair in the rug

Oh-oh how are you feeling love?
