A Change

I feel, the air, a wind of change
Today, Things will go my way

Staring right in front of me, reflections of my face
Dropped and broken, shattered glass,
Be Damned, I lost my faith

I feel, things are going to change
Today, Things will go my way

Staring into black of night, falling out of place
I reached for truth in the darkness,
Be Damned, I lost my faith

I cannot free the binds, that hold me down in place
I fill the strength inside, it helps to ease the pain

I feel, the air, a wind of change
Today, Things will go my way

Staring right in front of me, reflections of my face
Dropped and broken, shattered glass,
Be Damned, I lost my faith

I cannot free the binds, that hold me down in place
I fill the strength inside, it helps to ease the pain

I feel, things are going to change.
Today, Things will go my way

the Ant Song
1996

There's an ant in dissolution, Watch it wonder on the ground.
And I see it's going nowhere, neither lost nor to be found.
I feel its full frustration, as I look up at the sky,
'Cause I sometimes wonder, if I'll even have the time.

I sit and look out of the window, I see and hear the world outside.
I feel the cold air rush to greet me, see the gray clouds fill her skies.
So I look to the future, not the world I leave behind,
'Cause I sometimes wonder, if I'll even have the time.

Now the end to this illusion, you said those words to fade my frown.
Empty words to tell a story, keep my head up as I drown.
I'll still look to the future, and not the world I leave behind.
'Cause I sometimes wonder, if I'll even have the time.

Are You Listening?
1997

I once believed inside of you, seeing things remembered
When the power trip went off, I didn't mean a single word I said

What did you say? I thought I heard you whisper
My ears deceive me so I could not listen
But are you listening ?

All the sunny days are swearing grief of me, and their time is
Long and gone
With me given things I cannot see, you've given me all that I
Need.

Bohemian Beatnik
1998

"Forgive me mom", I heard him say. "You're precious son has passed away. No more need hold tears in your eyes, both weak
and strong, we all must die."

At times he tipped toed through his life
Imbibed and laughed into the night
But pain came it became so clear
Some wounds exist, that even time can't heal

To live alive, but all alone. Steep price for pride, years on his own.
Set off to find the great unreal. A destiny no fate could seal.

This all may seem a bit extreme
His dirty hands are now washed clean
"On with this noose" I heard him scream
That "In this world, there is no place for me"
TOP

Broken Bottled Kisses
1996

I walk with fire, burden as my treat
Pain melts my conscious, my private hell retreat

Broken bottled kisses, your words cannot repair
Take this bundle from me, its weight I cannot bare

Burned by desire, I thought I felt in love
So filled with passion, given verdict from above

I need some absolution, a cleansing of my soul
some tangible redemption, a way to fill this hole

A cleansing of my soul

Burning Sands
April 01, 2009

Hey there, have you heard my heart beat lately
Come down and feel it today

Lady, you have been my inspiration
Awaiting impatiently

If you don't know me
I'll drag myself through burning sands,
On blistered feet, your fate, my hand
And bring it all to you/ I'll give it all to you

Fairytales, Set aside your inhibitions
it's time, be open, be free

No more, wasted times in indecision
Come reach a hand out to me

If you don't know me
I'll drag myself through burning sands,
On blistered feet, your fate, my hand
And bring it all to you/ I'll give it all to you

Hey dear, you've got me lost in fascination
And falling into your soul

No tears, Hold me close now shed your sorrows
And cast away all your fears

If you don't know me
I'll drag myself through burning sands,
On blistered feet, your fate, my hand
And bring it all to you/ I'll give it all to you

Circle in the Clouds
June 29, 2007

Shaped to mold that nothing, as we watch ourselves drip into,
The drain of greed and power, step outside and take a chance now.

On run the "dogs" to cover, afraid to face the wood and chains
Given not for pleasure, only to calm us from our fears.

Pre-Chorus
For the sake of the sun, the rains won't stop me now
I'll sweep it all away and clear this film of grey somehow.

Chorus
(and) Breath the air, feel a breeze, always blowing here around
From the heart into dreams, that no longer turns about
Broken wings, falling free, I'll have to pick it from the ground up
I知 so happy to see, A Circle in the Clouds.

Shaped to mold that nothing, as we watch ourselves drip into,
The drain of greed and power, step outside and take a chance now.

Chorus
(and) Breath the air, feel a breeze, always blowing here around
From the heart into dreams, that no longer turn about
Broken wings, falling free, I'll have to pick it from the ground up
I知 so happy to see, A Circle in the Clouds.

Day Dream'n
December 2005

Day Dream'n, rolling around, naked on your bed
Head trip'n, thinking about, all the words you said
When you said "I'm going home"
You broke my heart, I'm going home

It's getting hard to remember, the way you felt, pressed against my skin
How can I wash away this sorrow, when there is no alcohol, to feed my head?
I'm falling out, I'm going down

Down to the place that we go just to hide away,
Let's ride we'll stay for awhile
Forget all our worries and regrets from yesterday
Moments archived/carved out in time

Day Dream'n, rolling around, naked on the floor
How can you say that you don't even know, which way to go?
Or even travel down this road.

Down to the place that we go just to hide away,
Let's ride we'll stay for awhile
Forget all our worries and regrets from yesterday
Moments archived/carved out in time

Day Dream'n, rolling around, naked in my head

The Devil Over Coffee
September 2008

I met the devil over coffee.
We hit it off, she was so charming.
With her smile, she disarmed me,
Poisoned me, leaving me for dead.

Then turned her back and walked right out on me.
Her cold black heart is all you left for me.
Wrapped it up, inside our memories,
With the lie, that you were meant for me.

I値l walk this empty street without you.
No longer waste my thoughts about you.
And I see, you致e found your peace,
Leaving me, struggling to breathe.

The devil now drinks her brew without me
With some new found chumps, she値l bind, then cast to sea.
In their eyes, I値l share this sorrow
But relieved/ With relief
典hank God it isn稚 me.

Dear Lily
2000

Will I look into your eyes, many years from now, I pray, Oh Lord away!
Will we look into one sky, many years from now, I pray, Oh Lord I pray
Will we laugh and share the sky, many years from now, I pray, Oh Lord I Pray

Refrain
Away! Away! I知 afraid, I致e gone so far away.
Away! I await! And afraid, I致e gone so far away.

Will the sun-shine from your smile, melt the clouds that leave me Blind,
I致e fallen Blind.

Why do I cash out borrowed time? Can稚 feel you near, want to hear your cry!
I致e gone so far away.

Chorus
Please forgive me now, I wasn稚 there to guide you,
Open arms now feel my blood bleed/breath deep inside you.

One day you will look into the sky, many years from know and find,
I知 not so far away.

Then brush the tear-drops from your face, wide-open arms you can稚 embrace,
I致e gone so far away.

Chorus
Please forgive me now, I wasn稚 there to guide you,
Open arms now feel my blood bleed/breath deep inside you.

Down the Road
October 2005

Take away the friction now, we're heading to a bar on down the road
To the place where fairies Dance, to the music, liquor flows on down your throat
On down the throat, we throw. On down the road, we go
Back on Down the Road

Light the lanterns of your mind, though your eyes, the lightning shines on down the road
Some we meet, in disbelief, open arms and greet, then walk on down the road
On down the road, we flow. On down the road, we grow.
Back on Down the Road

Now I stand and I stare at the stars
Thinking on how I've made it this far
All the laughs and the cries, All the kisses goodbye
Open arms I'm embracing it all

All the answers that you seek to the questions that you ask, live on down the road
In the end with dreams of one, take a hand and run on toward the sun.
On toward the sun, we run. After the sun, we'll run
Back on Down the Road

Flame and Fire
05-21-2013

My thoughts they drift then fade away
To other times and other days
A little sad, some fall from reach
But one roars out from dark to deep

When you play with me
You'll be playing it like with fire
Baby burn in me, feed the flames with your desire
And don't burden me
With the tales of all those liars
Or murder me, when the flames fall from your fire

Your hour glass count grains of sand
Freely falling through my hand
Falling far and out of reach
Forever lost, an endless beach

Chorus

With one last breath I turn to run
I'll stretch to reach the setting sun
With fist a loft and chest up high
With courage fought no fear to die

Green Eyes With You
December 27. 2010

So I raise my arms high, open heart to the sky
Tried to pick myself up, broken now back to front
Wo, these feelings won稚 die

You致e left me in black, I知 beaten, I知 blue
As you race to the end, all I ask my dear friend,
Take those green eyes with you

Must have hit the bar low, or a flat sour note
But please don稚 get up, sure I知 not good enough
I値l just show my way out.

And day after day, I値l keep losing my way
Though I知 not giving up, there痴 some truth, I feel stuck
With nothing clever to say

Chorus

With time marching on, I lament in these songs
As the tea kettle whistles, beat blistering viscous
And moves me along

And memories like dreams, our past lost it seems
With a lonely conviction, I march forth in vision
And find my way out
TOP

Ides of March
03-15-2013

Trooper Soldier on
No time to rest your weary head
Another year rolls on
The ides of march is here again

So I stare off in space
Lost in time, out of place
A lonely star you've come so far
To trip and fall on your face

Eternal springs run dry
Locked in pools of yesterday
Chiseled on my mind
All the love that's passed away

Chorus

I've dreamed of waterfalls
Flowing from the lion痴 head
Winding all these years
Til the river finds its end
TOP

Insane to Save
04-15-2011

I had just turned away, feeling the tears in your eyes
With my heart broke and weak, your sweet lips I must tell you goodbye

I知 not heartless I swear I just lost my own way
Couldn稚 deal with the pain, that I feel everyday
Wandered off of a path even God would not save me

Felt the weight of your world, crush me and squeeze me inside
Tried to open myself but I just turn away run and hide

Then go straight for the throat cause I壇 hope to be free
Just a last minute reach from the caveman in me
Forced off of the rail even God cannot save me

Cruel foolish world
Cruel foolish life

Now I march through the night, these demons they claw from each side
Howling winds from their screams, destined to burn of the fire

Orphaned soul set to roam, all alone we fall free
Void of love, life and hope and forsaken our dreams
Falling off of the road even God will not save me
TOP

Into the Light
September 23, 2009

Now lend an ear
Let me share a little secret from my chest
We致e lost our way
It痴 time to hoist the lines and course correct
And find a way, and find away, in through this life
Then find a way, and find our way, into the light

So what to think?
Just train your eyes on spirits in the sky
And for the day
Let loose a little light still held inside
And forge away, and forge away, into this life
Then find a way, and find our way, into the light

In ten thousand days
Will you stand beside me when it rains?
What if we lose
Good intentions now stagnation, trials and fools
That lost their way, and lost their ways, into the night
Another day, and not that way, we値l run into the light
And find a way, and find away, in through this life
Then find a way, and find our way, into the light

Journey On A Tractor Wagon
1996

Life sucked for me this day, I sometimes feel this way,
Lost my relation to this world
From time to time I've been believing, just cast a stone, could use
Some healing. Why don't we look out past these walls?

Now I search this world for truths worth seeking, Sometimes in thought
I delve to deeply, that's when I go and get real high.
Then my time just drifts Away, to warm thoughts of sunny days,
These are some things I hope to find...

Living out real journey's with my mind,
Seeking all the things I need to find,
Casting out my demons from inside,
On a one way expedition into time.

This day I hold the setting sun, it fades to black, its day is done.
So will this happen to us all.
Now clear dear Lord this man's confusion, lift the cloak from this
Illusion, and set him free so he won't fall.

Liberty Lost
August 04, 2006

So Beautiful
For amber waves of grain
That once held up the light for those of foreign lands
A place for dreams, a getaway

Pre-Chorus

Twins a fire came crumbling down
Hate and fear grew all around
And the weary candleholder's flame burned out

From a loud roar to a whisper
I have seen this vision fail
The land once held aloft, with God's own mighty hands
Fell off the Earth's sad face

Pre-Chorus

Then I took a look around
All the smoke cleared out
I could see the buildings burning, screams cried out!

Chorus

Where have you gone, my greatest friend?
Why did you hide, When the bombs brought down the walls?

Refrain

And with its passing marks an end to a dream
We owe it to them, by their lives free
And now with growing threat, security, liberty?

Chorus

Where have you gone? My greatest friend
Why did you hide? When the bombs brought down the walls

Refrain

And with this passing marks an end to a dream
They paid it forward gave their lives we live free
And now with growing threat, security, liberty?
 

Where have you gone? / Why did you run? My greatest/ Oh fearless friend
Why/Where did you hide? When the bombs brought down the walls

Live a Parade!
1998

They say NO! Not even looking our way
Winding up his thoughts, He then continued to say
When there's HOPE! Time get out of my way
Keeping this in mind, you will live a parade

Now there's Pain, It slowly etches away
Stronger now then than then, traveling on separate in waves
So we GROW! Into one with our days
Sometimes pushed around, but always standing our stays

I want to feel like I do
You go and feel the way you do
My game I'll Play it my way
You're game you live it as you choose

They Say NO! Not even knowing our ways
Winding up his thoughts, he then continues to say
When there's HOPE! Time get out of my way
Keeping this in mind, you will LIVE A PARADE!!!

Moving On
October 08, 2008

When I woke up the next morning I felt the sadness fall on me,
And I closed my eyes to questions and I prayed it just a dream.
I知 moving on

Then I stepped into the shower and I tried to fight away the tears
And I let the water痴 healing warmth wash away my fears.
I知 moving on

Guitar Solo

And the days they passed so slowly at times I thought I壇 lose my mind,
And I waited on a text from you but I never heard that chime.
I知 moving on

Refrain
When I look past all the many times that you let me down,
Those days are gone and won稚 be here tomorrow.

When I see all the many times that you made me cry,
Why so hard to even say 的 love you?

So I looked down at the spaces where your fingers used to be,
And I closed my hand so tightly squeezed that space right out of me.
I知 moving on

Now I look out past the ocean feel the sand beneath my feet,
And I see the sun痴 reflection one set of footprints behind me.
I知 moving on

My Dear
1994

As I wonder through this wilderness, searching for a place to hide
I'd only hoped to fill the emptiness, heal these wounds from deep inside.
I had stumbled into yesterday, on a summers afternoon.
She was sweet and young and tender then, until her life was torn in two.
Tears fell off her face and dropped off into space...

Where did it go wrong my dear?
How could I be so blind and still not hear?
I should have let you go, a long, long time ago.
Why was it always wrong for me to feel?
Now tell me now where I went wrong my dear...

I can't presume to know the answers, even the questions weren't that clear.
I looked ahead to possibilities, now that futures not as near.
And I think she sensed my failures then, 'cause she passed right through my mind.
Like a hundred thousand dreams I've had, just another waste of time.
And tears filled up my eyes, they nearly made me cry...

Like a ship in stormy weather, my thoughts drift from place to place.
With little meaning or direction, some are lost without a trace.
I'll sill wonder through my wilderness, with my past so close behind
She'll be packed in fragile wrappings there, somewhere frozen for all time.

No More Tears

Thoughts going nowhere, I致e got you on my mind
We池e heading somewhere, a place not hard to find
And as we get there, alone, I close my eyes
If could tell you, how that makes me feel inside

I caught you looking, why must we play this game
If I could hold you, we could end this masquerade
This revelation, is driving me insane
Whatever happened to good ole fashion love I say

The vibe, the emotion, the songs of devotion
Through heartache misfortune, I call back to you
With every day older, and life milling colder
In search of a shoulder I call out to you

And we値l fly, to all the answers
And hear cheers, to all our dreams
Til the end, I will adore you
This way out, no more fears

Now login baby, don稚 make me wait one more
I致e sent this message, it痴 your turn dear, unbolt the door
I致e fallen for you and hope you fall for me
This great adventure, I only wish your eyes to see

Psalm for God
1996

Now look to these eyes, through tears can you hear how they cry?
From denial and indifference.
Fragments of dreams, that still swim around in my mind,
Why do they fade away?
Burned, into me, and so deep I can't breath,
Are their faded reflections.
Opened the mind to the shit all around,
So I can make your connections.

Oh so many questions dwell in me.
Do I overlook the answers, could it be?
If I ever lose the courage from inside,
Where can I hide?

Will I find my way, can you see what's going on?
Is the road ahead, paved for me, or just sad psalms?

It all fades to night, dearest thoughts, I'll still grieve for you,
Until I can't anymore.
Out from these clouds I must sail, 'till these screams,
From inside, become silent.
Woe, is to me, a companion to be,
Will light be shattered by darkness?
Hate, swells from here, at the price I must pay
For misguided directions I've made.

As long as there's strength for me, here in this soul,
My lungs will draw breath from this place.
Fastened up high, all the stars gazing down, each waiting,
To shine out its brightest.
Give me these dreams, pull the thorns from my heart,
Heal my wounds, set me free from the darkness.
All, that I am, and can be, then will be,
Fully reflected to thee.

Pair of Doves
2001

You got to believe in something, in this Old World,
Why not let the music set you free

Come and Sing along, open up your heart,
I値l show you how easy it can be

(Today) I saw a pair of doves, they were flying overhead,
And I wanted one of them to be me

And So I sing a song, with hopes, to lighten up your heart,
I致e giving you the key to set us free.

Oh My Darling, Oh My Love

Love was not enough, it could not hold us close together,
Living in this absence were just fears

Each day I prayed the Lord, that he would bring us back together,
And waited, All those days passed into years

Oh My Darling, Oh My Love

I will not forget you, will not let you fall behind,
So sad, the road that forked was so unkind

We will stand again, as friends, someday on distant shores,
These Songs and Memories playing in our minds

Oh My Darling, You致e gone home, my little dove.

The Poem
1998

Weathered on my soul,
Once warm breeze it now blows cold.
Now I find my self alone,
Crumbling bricks I once called home,
Broken pieces of a poem.

And dreams once danced,
All throughout my mind,
But one day the music died, with my arms upraised I cried...
Has my blue sky been denied?

All that I need to feel, is good.

So let me out, there can be no turn about.
And I'll raise my arms up high,
Re-embrace this one inside. I'll recapture all of my blue sky.
TOP

Precious Apathy
1998

You said it's all a dream. So far from what it seems.
So close your eyes and go, as far as it will take you,
Then you will know...

To me you were my brother
A place inside held by no other
Uncrossed your wings and started to fly
And now I know my dreams, belong to me

Set off to see the day, without you by my side,
On a shallow painful stride.
Dropped down beneath the gauntlet again, to find some peace of mind,
Just a little peace of my mind...

What will you do, When I'm gone?
You uncrossed your wings and started to fly,
And your already gone.

Until your precious apathy,
Slipped down below right off the cliffs of your mind.
Into the depths of my soul, it's killing you,
Letting me see... Your Precious Apathy.

Restless Journey
03-20-2016

Today I'll end the sorrow
Looking to find a way
A life of empty promise
A price I couldn't pay

A soul on a restless journey
Memories and pain
I cry, the rainbow's falling
I cast away these chains

Climb high into the heavens
To reach your spirit in the sky
On winds of hope that carry us,
Go release your soul, set free to fly

I search the whole world for you
Today, I searched in vain
With only thoughts to hold you
Tears from heaven rain

Today I'll end the sorrow
Looking to find a way
I cry, the rainbow's falling
I cast away these chains

Sea to See
1998

Slipped into a hole, and now a tear in me,
To a hollow point so deep inside my life.
I tried to hold on to the things, that made me feel all right,
But in the end it never turned out right.

I went to meet myself halfway, with time I壇 hope to clear the gray.

Seldom have they tried to understand this,
They壇 just as soon be judge and roll their eyes.
典o good to be a part of the enlightenment we share,
Afraid of all the answers they might find.

I went to meet their world half way, and haven稚 showed up to the day.

Fly into the skies of Heaven,
Running through a field of dreams,
Playing out the hand, that life has dealt to me this far,
A grain of sand that痴 never seen You値l See Me

Forever we will guide our rivers,
From the deserts we will steer them to the sea.
With all the many islands that abound there, we will sail,
One day we値l set on ground, from sea to see.

Fly into the skies of Heaven,
Running through a field of dreams,
Playing out the hand, that life has dealt to me this far,
A grain of sand that痴 never seen You値l See Me

Stoned
1994

I've got, a broken heart, don't feel so smart, I guess it's back to start.
And I've got, an aching head, feels like I'm dead, guess I'll go to bed.

OOH, and you shouldn't have gone. OOH, and you left me all alone,
I guess I'll just get stoned.

And I've got, a beat up car, it don't get me far, it doesn't always start.
So I go, and I get real high, I've been denied, my big blue sky now baby.

This month, I can't pay my rent, my money's spent,
I'll have to live in a tent now baby,
So I go, and I get real high, I'm still hoping to find
My big blue sky now baby.
