Raw Nerve

Supersonic ears, radioactive tears
Navigating through all their negatives, can't control the years.

Did you hear that pin drop?
Did you FEEL that rain stop?

Was it all in your head, those words that they said? 
Or are the words that you find really words in their mind?

Telepathic radiation taking over all our nation.
Satellites and wavelengths, cell phones with the same strength.

Clairvoyant?  Raw nerve?
Do you find they sway to your swerve?
Some will say this is what we deserve.

This is the new age, on the grid.
WIFI nation with no lid.

Air waves of static and endless information.
We're all changing, all evolving into someone's new creation.

    "Do you find they sway to your swerve?"

    Thank you.  I actually borrowed it from Jewel...

    "And I'm sorry
    If it was my swerve that
    Tempted you to sway"


    Sometimes It Be That Way

    Night with its shattered teeth
    Attempts to speak
    My pen is present but
    Courage left via the sink
    And I'm sorry
    I snuck up on you
    From behind
    I'm sorry not all
    My love letters did rhyme
    And I'm sorry that
    Jesus died for my sins
    And I swear to God
    It won't happen again
    And I'm sorry
    If it was my swerve that
    Tempted you to sway
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    And Romeo was
    A very nice man
    He said
    "Jewel, I don't think
    You quite understand" 
    And I'm sorry if you had
    To explain it like this
    I'm sorry I was a point
    You were destined to miss
    And I'm sorry
    I spoke to you irreverently
    Down in the hollow
    By the old olive tree
    And I'm sorry
    If my heart breaking
    Ruined your day 
    Oh well
    Sometimes It be that way
    I said
    "Oh well, I got nothing
    Left to sell
    This love was a bell that
    Rang unheard in the air
    I was bound to find out
    That you didn't care
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    And Aphrodite with
    Her neon lamp
    Kissed Neptune
    They put her face
    On a stamp
    And I'm sorry
    I used it to mail
    A letter to you
    I'm sorry I'm glue and
    The rest bounces off of you
    And I'm sorry not even
    This jet's metal wings
    Could get across
    These simple things
    And I'm sorry
    If I ever sang
    Your name in vain
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    And Goldilocks
    Well she knew three bears
    They all ate oatmeal
    And tiptoed upstairs
    And I'm sorry
    I never got to
    Find you like this
    Sleeping like a baby
    And swaddled in bliss
    And I'm sorry for
    All the times
    I forgot to imply something
    In between the lines
    And I'm sorry
    If my heart breaking
    Ruined your day
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    I said
    "Oh well, I got nothing
    Left to sell
    This love was a bell that
    Rang unheard in the air
    I was bound to find out
    That you didn't care
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    And shadow's long fingers
    They dance on the wall
    Electricity chases
    Its tail in the hall
    And I'm sorry
    If my arms to you
    Were just empty rooms
    I'm sorry
    I never could comfort you
    And I'm sorry
    St. Petersburg is
    A miserable town
    And I'm sorry
    If I am bringing you down
    And I'm sorry
    If I caused you pain
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way
    And flame licks the air
    With its silver tongue
    Night has many hands
    But I have just one
    And I'm sorry
    I walked in on you
    Unexpectedly
    I'm sorry
    I never served you Both
    Camomile's tea
    And I'm sorry
    I didn't always have a match
    That could start
    A fire big enough
    For your heart to catch
    And I'm sorry
    If it was my swerve that
    Tempted you to sway
    Oh well
    Sometimes it be that way

    I swear :)  You silly, Juggler. 

    The Bible and Nicene Creed do say he will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.  Yes, sir, in my humble opinion, I do believe that Jesus will not die for our sins, again, this time around.
