lies and truth

After all these years, I find you here,

life is so very strange.

Gathered here, are all my fears.

Will we all fade away?

All I can see, Is desire before me.

My grasping hands, bright with flames.

All I hear are words in my ear,

Telling me it can’t all be my way.

I hear her say;

Plans and schemes may color our dreams.

Until they fade in the light of day.

Lies And Truth are the colors of youth,

until they blend into gray.

I can only see before me

desire’s dancing flame.

Claiming mine, the light of love.

Drove my grasping hands insane.

WINDOWS

I’m looking out my window
through my foggy pain
so many empty spaces
is it my move again

I can not see tomorrow
it’s so unclear today
we are the only losers
in this game we both play

I’m looking out my window
through a melancholy frame
rain drops won’t fill the spaces
between our shuttered pain

I’m outside my window
rain falling all around
washing off the distance
memories on the ground

You Say You Don’t Love Me

You Say You Don’t Love Me

I know that’s a lie

If you don’t love me

What’s that tear in you’re goodbye?

**

When you Say You Don’t Love Me

you don’t look in my eyes

That’s why I say babe

It’s just a lie!

**

I’ll say I love you

I need no reason why

Must be that something

I see flashing in your eye.

**

So don’t say you don’t love me

I’ll know that’s a lie

You let a tear out

And dropped it in my eye.

**

Now everything’s blue

I see oceans in the sky

All I was asking for is

One reason why.

**

You Say You Don’t Love Me!

Naturally

It was a long shot.

She looked too good.

I had to try hard,

I hoped she understood.

That I’m down now,

but I will regain.

My control over

my personal pain.

It’s not that I’m shy,

I just felt down.

I’m the kind of guy

who likes to fool around.

Since she was there,

I jumped in her game.

If she were someone else,

would I have played it the same?

So now we’re rapping.

It’s really not hard,

to talk to her now

that I’m in her yard.

Let me say

it’s not cool to be shy.

Just say; “Hello”.

And be a natural guy.

MONKEY

Monkey see monkey do.

You dress like me, but I ain’t you.

The people laugh behind your back

I buy my clothes off the rack.

.

Don’t let the man jerk you around

He’s the only one getting rich in this old town.

.

Oh momma, unlock my cage.

I got to express my rage.

.

Monkey see monkey do.

You dress like me, I look like you.

Everywhere I go, you wear my clothes.

I’m getting a me, overdose.

.

Don’t let the man jerk you around.

He’s the only one getting rich in this old town.

.

Monkey!

The Battle

Soldiers are coming.

I can hear they’re drum.

Boots are on the ground.

The Battle has begun.

.

Meanwhile children are sleeping.

They cannot be disturbed.

With news of war’s disaster.

They’ll hear not one word.

.

Outside The Battle is raging.

Bombs falling all around.

People are praying.

Faces to the ground.

.

Meanwhile children are playing.

They can not be disturbed.

With news of war’s disaster.

They’ll hear not one word.

*

Are you still out there,

Cold and alone?

I still miss you.

When are you coming home?

.

Outside The Battle is raging.

Drones are in the sky.

Tanks are rolling.

While the gay parade marches by.

.

Meanwhile children are laughing.

They must not be disturbed.

With news of war’s disaster.

They’ll hear not one word.

*

Are you still out there,

Cold to the bone?

I still miss you.

When are you coming home?

.

Outside The Battle is raging.

Mountin’

I climbed high up the mountain,

it was a hell of a task.

I climbed high up the mountain,

it was a hell of a task.

I knew my stallion wouldn’t make it

when we hit that narrow pass.

.

I got down off that Mountin’,

just that stallion and me.

We got down off that Mountin’.

just that stallion and me.

I slapped him on the bottom,

I set that big horse free.

.

Watch him go now.

There he is, there he is.

I see him, hiding behind that bush.

I see him, I see him.

He loves to hide behind that bush.

.

I went into the city.

just to get a little ass.

I went into the city,

just to get a little ass.

A little ass will carry you,

where a stallion just won’t pass.

.

I got over the Mountin’,

right on through that narrow pass.

I got over the mountin’,

through that narrow pass.

Just slipping and sliding,

on my little ass.

.

My little ass.

.

I got over the Mountin’,

through that narrow

pass over the mountain’,

through that narrow

pass over the mountin’,

through that narrow

pass.
