Screen

The shadow of the flame
Flickers in the light of the concrete tar
The froth and the foam
Cascades in the brook of the reflecting glass
I am just inches away
On a stool raised high
Looking far and wide
Into the open sky

The man in the oversized coat
Tries to hide his feelings for the woman
She sits and smokes all alone
She has a tan on her finger where once was worn a ring
They are just inches away
On a bed raised high
Looking far and wide
Into the open screen

Crooked Duck

She met me at the Crooked Duck
With bedroom eyes and smile

She wore a black top, dressed to kill
With sunshine in her eyes

She was never to return my calls
And i know not why that is

But i'll just keep on calling her
Until she blocks me off

Won't you care to talk to me
Won't you care to take a stroll
A conversation that kills
Something to die for

Won't you care to fling with me
Won't you care to care
A shopping spree i shall fear
Something to change for

I tried to catch you over the wire
As foxy as you are

Your fire brings envy to
Flowers of my time

I try to reach you, i'm trying to reach
Will you please just take the call

Cause i'll just keep on calling you
As patahetic that may sound

Won't you care to fling with me
Won't you care to care
A conversation that kills
Something to die for

Disappear

Feel the sound
Awake to the ground

Spin in time
No reason, no crime

We all fall down
We all fade out
We all cut loose
We all disappear

Make some noise
No silence, only voice

Work the heat
Make love on the bedsheet

We all get beat
We all get sick
We all feel hate
We all rationalize

Ride the wave
The one that makes you stay

Show some sympathy
Let her feel naughty

We all are torn
We all are bored
We all slip in sin
We all recover

Try to keep
The politics away

For sure, do spit
Religion in the drain

We all fight fire
We all bruise and burn
We all waste away
We all lose our minds

We all do what we can
We all do lie
We all go back
To living our lives

Shivering the king

In the castle she wakes
Her dreams, now all chained
Searching for the flower
Nectar of diseased pain

With a trembling heart she screams
Hollow as she wails
Poison to the king's soul
A revenge best served cold

Tranquil

In the tranquil light of the sun, she walked
She shined like the harshest of rays
Ozone stood there with trembling fingers
Her voice was soft and her sword was lit
A blaze of fire roared out of her heart
She showed sympathy even to the freezing pebble
Ozone was slowly brought back to its feet
As she walked and shined in the tranquil heat

The Fools' Day Song (April)

April was a fool
May be a joke
June was a stoner
And July wants more
August can be a moon dance
September will be sick
October is all about luck
November just wants to fuck
December is a vacation
January is like a new leaf
February can mean love
March will hopefully change me

bankrupt

I got my bank accounts hacked into
I went to towns no one would go to
I drank and drove and stole a pizza to go
I am outta money so tell me what should I do
I am bankrupt
Just corrupt
Bankrupt
A sick sick pile of dirt
I got my fingers in bones and dust
I went to a funeral just to see a dead horse
I ran around in circles till I could not be found
I got no money so tell me where should I go
I am bankrupt
Just corrupt
Bankrupt
A sick sick pile of dirt
You got your house and a swimming pool
A little bird to tell you what time can do
I got a couple forms and a finger print to prove
I got no money, no love, just a single pair of shoe
I am bankrupt
Just corrupt
Bankrupt
A sick sick pile of dirt
