    One morn I awakened
    A new sun was shining
    The sky was a Kingdom
    All covered in blood
    The moon and the stars
    Where the troops that lay conquered
    Like fruit left to wither
    Poor spiritual food

    And the spears of bright sun
    All brave with its conquest
    Did hover unearthly
    In banners of fire
    I knelt in the garden
    Awash with the dawning
    And a voice came so brightly
    I covered my eyes

    Thank you for giving
    This bright new morning
    So steeped seemed the evening
    In darkness and blood
    There'll be no sadness
    There'll be no sorrow
    There'll be no road too narrow
    There'll be a new day
    And it's today
    For us

    I gotta take a little time
    A little time to think things over
    I better read between the lines
    In case I need it when I'm older

    Now this mountain I must climb
    Feels like a world upon my shoulders
    I through the clouds I see love shine
    It keeps me warm as life grows colder

    In my life there's been heartache and pain
    I don't know if I can face it again
    Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
    To change this lonely life

    I wanna know what love is
    I want you to show me
    I wanna feel what love is
    I know you can show me

    I'm gonna take a little time
    A little time to look around me
    I've got nowhere left to hide
    It looks like love has finally found me

    In my life there's been heartache and pain
    I don't know if I can face it again
    I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
    To change this lonely life

    I wanna know what love is
    I want you to show me
    I wanna feel what love is
    I know you can show me

    Wish you were here...

    standards i kept,
    in the back of my mind,
    are now just rules i break
    from time to time.

    i'm way past worrying
    about it getting a hold on me.
    i realize i ride
    on its back for free...

    the bed room ritual.
    simple way to feel.
    without running the risk of anything real.
    ever being given.
    ever being shown.
    back in the bedroom
    no backbone.

    predictabily i'll stick
    to the safety of the script.
    but i know i'll end up settling
    for a less than perfect fit.

    Oh dear dad
    Can you see me now
    I am myself
    Like you somehow
    I'll ride the wave
    Where it takes me
    I'll hold the pain
    Release me

    Wish you were here...

    Take the makeup off your eyes
    I've got to see you, hear your sacred sighs
    Before the break up, comes the silence
    I'm talking to you. You say you're over it,
    But I know

    I thought I knew you. You thought you knew me
    But now that you do, it's not so easy now
    That I know

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Every man that you know would have run at the word go
    Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
    They don't know what we know. Never know what we know

    And all your makeup, just take it all off
    I've got to find you before the line is lost
    I know I hurt you, I won't deny it
    When I reach for you, you say, "I'm over it."
    But I know

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Every man that you know would have run at the word go
    Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
    They don't know what I know. It's so little that we know
    But the cup it overflows. Little boys with their porno
    This is their world, where can we go?

    Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
    Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
    Can you see me?

    You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
    Little boys with their porno. Little boys with their porno
    Makes me feel like something's wrong. It's the only world we know
    Yeah, something's wrong. Little boys with their porno

    And boys they learn some selfish shit until the girl won't put up with it
    On and on and on we go. I just have to know. I'm not over it
    I'm not over it

    So love is real like a disease.
    Come on tell me please,
    I'm not over it
    I'm not over it

    Meet me down by the railway station
    I've been waiting
    And I'm through waiting for you
    The train sings the same kind of blues...

    Well I don't know why I always trusted
    Sometimes I think I must have
    I must have been crazy
    Crazy to wait on you, baby ...

    Well I turned around and got pushed down, baby
    Now I decided yesterday that I would leave you
    I'm alright...

    Please, I've been takin' my time
    You know, it's been on my mind
    I hope you find a love
    Your own designs of love
    That's alright...
    That's alright

    I believe, I believe that I know you
    'Cause we've been a long time,
    Now I've got to show you, that I
    Well, I never did beleive in time
    You know, changin' anybody's mind

    Now, I can't define love like it should be
    That's alright,
    That's alright

    Please, I've been takin' my time
    You know, it's been on my mind
    I hope you find a love
    Your own designs of love
    That's alright, yes
    That's alright ...

    In the time of chimpanzees
    I was a monkey
    Butane in my veins
    So I'm out to cut the junkie
    With the plastic eyeballs,
    Spray-paint the vegetables
    Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
    Kill the headlights
    And put it in neutral
    Stock car flaming' with a loser
    And the cruise control
    Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
    Got a couple of couches,
    Sleep on the love seat
    Someone keeps saying'
    I'm insane to complain
    About a shotgun wedding
    And a stain on my shirt
    Don't believe everything that you breathe
    You get a parking violation
    And a maggot on your sleeve
    So shave your face
    With some mace in the dark
    Saving' all your food stamps
    And burning' down the trailer park

    SOOOOOOY UN PERDEDOOOOR
    I'M A LOSER BABY SO WHY DON'T YOU KILL ME

    (I love this song, but seriously, WTF? :lol: )

    Take me if you need me
    But never hold me down
    Sleeping Angel...

    You're asking me to trust you
    Well there's little of that around
    I'm trying to believe you
    And I'm learning all the time
    Two-part personality
    The flower and the vine
    Flower and the vine...

    Take me sleeping angel
    Catch me when you can
    Real love affairs are heavy spells
    For a woman and a man
    For a woman and a man


    I need you because you let me breathe
    Well you've taken me away
    But never take me lightly
    Or I could never stay
    No I could never stay...

    Well, someday when we're older
    And my hair is silver gray
    A braid with all of the love that you have
    Like a soft silver chain

    Whoa, someday when we're older
    And my hair is silver gray
    A braid with all of the love that you have
    Like a soft silver chain
    Well, like a soft silver chain...


    Oh, take me sleeping angel
    Oh, catch me when you can
    And a braid with all the love that you have
    Like a soft silver chain..

    You wear your smile
    Like it was going out of fashion
    Dress to inflame
    But douse any ideas of passion
    You carry your love in a trinket
    Hanging round your throat
    Always inviting
    Always exciting
    But I must not take off my coat

    Well I'm tired of hanging around
    I want somebody new
    I'm not sure who I've got in mind
    But I know
    That it's not you
    That it's not you

    You ask me questions
    That I never wanted to hear
    I am the only one
    Just until you finish this year
    I would murder you
    If I had the alibi
    Here in my hand
    And you just laugh
    'cause you don't understand

    That I'm tired of hanging around
    I want somebody new
    I'm not sure
    Who I've got in mind
    But I know that it's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you
    No it's not you
    That it's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you

    Heaven
    Give me a sign
    Waiting for the sun to shine
    Pleasure fills up my dreams
    And I love it
    Like a baby screams

    Its so useless
    How can you be proud
    When you're sinking into the ground
    Into the ground fills up my dreams
    And I love it
    Like a baby screams

    Couldn't ask for more you said
    Take it all
    And strike me
    Strike me dead

    Waiting again
    Waiting
    Like I waited before
    Waiting again
    Waiting here for nothing at all
    Heaven fills up my dreams
    And I love it
    Like a baby screams

    Couldn't ask for more you said
    Couldn't ever let it end
    Take it all
    Take it all
    And strike me dead

    Heaven

    Too late, my time has come, sent shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time
    Goodbye everybody, I've got to go. Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
    Mama, ooooooh. (Way the wind blows)
    I don't wanna die, I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

    Wish you were here...

    And give in

    Stay cool

    Don't change a thing for me

    I'm standing here on the ground
    The sky above won't fall down
    See no evil in all directions
    Resolution of happiness
    Things have been dark for too long

    Don't change for you
    Don't change a thing for me

    Say it's the same sun spinning in the same sky
    Say it's the same stars streaming in the same night
    Tell me it's the same world whirling through the same space
    Tell me it's the same time tripping through the same day
    So say it's the same house and nothing in the house has changed
    Yeah say it's the same room and nothing in the room is strange
    Oh tell me it's the same boy burning in the same bed
    Tell me it's the same blood breaking in the same head
    Say it's the same taste taking down the same kiss
    Say it's the same you
    Say it's the same you and it's always been like this
    Say it's the same you
    Say it's the same you and it always and forever is
    Say it's the same you
    Say it's the same you and it's always been like this
    Say it's the same you
    Say it's the same you and it always and forever is
    Say it's the same you
    Say it's the same you
    Yeah tell me it's all the same
    This is how it's always been
    But if nothing has changed...
    Then it must mean...
    But the sun is cold - the sky is wrong
    The stars are black - the night is gone
    The world is still - the space is stopped
    The time is out - the day is dropped
    The house is dark - the room is scarred
    The boy is stiff - the bed is hard
    The blood is thick - the head is burst
    The taste is dry - the kiss is thirst
    And it's not the same you
    It's not the same you
    No it never was like this
    It's not the same you
    It's not the same you and it never really is
    It's not the same you
    It's not the same you
    No it never was like this
    It's not the same you
    It's not the same you and it never really is
    It's not the same you
    It's not the same you
    Oh it's not the same
    This isn't how it's always been
    Everything has to have changed...
    Or it's me...

    Some people talk to angels
    Some people talk to themselves
    Well I don't know who you're talking to
    But everything you say makes me want you

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines
    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat
    You are red in a sea of black and white
    You are a fire, you are dynamite

    Some people try to change the world
    And some people just stay alive
    Well I don't know what you're living for
    But everything you do makes me want more

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines
    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat
    You are red in a sea of black and white
    You are a fire, you are dynamite

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines
    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat

    Life, it seems, will fade away
    Drifting further every day
    Getting lost within myself
    Nothing matters, no one else

    I have lost the will to live
    Simply nothing more to give
    There is nothing more for me
    Need the end to set me free

    Things aren't what they used to be
    Missing one inside of me
    Deathly lost, this can't be real
    Cannot stand this hell I feel

    Emptiness is filling me
    To the point of irony
    Growing darkness taking dawn
    I was me, but now He's gone

    No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
    Now I can't think, think why I should even try
    Yesterday seems as though it never existed
    Death greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye


    Wish you were here...

    ’Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
    When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
    I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
    I’ll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
    In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
    Everything up to that point had been left unresolved
    Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail
    Poisoned in the bushes an’ blown out on the trail
    Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Suddenly I turned around and she was standin’ there
    With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
    She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Now there’s a wall between us, somethin’ there’s been lost
    I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed
    Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
    But nothing really matters much, it’s doom alone that counts
    And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    I’ve heard newborn babies wailin’ like a mournin’ dove
    And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
    Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
    I bargained for salvation an’ they gave me a lethal dose
    I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Well, I’m livin’ in a foreign country but I’m bound to cross the line
    Beauty walks a razor’s edge, someday I’ll make it mine
    If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”
    There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.- Hemingway

    i'm on such a dylan kick these days....



    I once loved a girl, her skin it was bronze
    With the innocence of a lamb, she was gentle like a fawn
    I courted her proudly but now she is gone
    Gone as the season she’s taken

    Through young summer’s breeze, I stole her away
    From her mother and sister, though close did they stay
    Each one of them suffering from the failures of their day
    With strings of guilt they tried hard to guide us

    Of the two sisters, I loved the young
    With sensitive instincts, she was the creative one
    The constant scapegoat, she was easily undone
    By the jealousy of others around her

    For her parasite sister, I had no respect
    Bound by her boredom, her pride to protect
    Countless visions of the other she’d reflect
    As a crutch for her scenes and her society

    Myself, for what I did, I cannot be excused
    The changes I was going through can’t even be used
    For the lies that I told her in hopes not to lose
    The could-be dream-lover of my lifetime

    With unknown consciousness, I possessed in my grip
    A magnificent mantelpiece, though its heart being chipped
    Noticing not that I’d already slipped
    To a sin of love’s false security

    From silhouetted anger to manufactured peace
    Answers of emptiness, voice vacancies
    Till the tombstones of damage read me no questions but, “Please
    What’s wrong and what’s exactly the matter?”

    And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
    The timeless explosion of fantasy’s dream
    At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
    Tumbled all down into pieces

    “The tragic figure!” her sister did shout
    “Leave her alone, God damn you, get out!”
    And I in my armor, turning about
    And nailing her to the ruins of her pettiness

    Beneath a bare lightbulb the plaster did pound
    Her sister and I in a screaming battleground
    And she in between, the victim of sound
    Soon shattered as a child ’neath her shadows

    All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight
    I gagged twice, doubled, tears blinding my sight
    My mind it was mangled, I ran into the night
    Leaving all of love’s ashes behind me

    The wind knocks my window, the room it is wet
    The words to say I’m sorry, I haven’t found yet
    I think of her often and hope whoever she’s met
    Will be fully aware of how precious she is

    Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me
    “How good, how good does it feel to be free?”
    And I answer them most mysteriously
    “Are birds free from the chains of the skyway?”

    The sun rises slowly
    On another day
    The eastern sky grows
    Cold
    Winter in water colours
    Shades of grey

    Something
    Something holds me
    Holds me hypnotized

    I stare at the window
    Stare at the window
    Waiting for the day
    To go
    Winter in water colours
    Shades of grey

    The world awaits just up the stairs
    Leave the pain for someone else.

    Nothing back there for you to find,...
    Or was it you, you left behind?
    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."
