WE ARE SHEEP
WE GRAZE AND BRAISE
WE TURN OUR NOSE, UP AND AWAY
WE FOLLOW THE HERD
IT’S SLIGHTLY ABSURD
HOW WE LOOK THE SAME
FEEL THE SAME
WALK THE SAME
BLAME THE SAME
OUR SHEEPNESS’ IS ACUTE
WE DON’T TALK, WE’RE MUTE
WE SLEEP IN THE SUN
AND SNORE IN THE DARK
WE FEED OF THE EARTH
AND LICK THE DRY DIRT
WE ARE LED TO THE WATER
WE GET FAT AND FED
AND THEN WE ARE LED TO THE SLAUGHTER
LIFE’S NOT TOO SERIOUS
OUR FEELINGS AREN’T TOO DEEP
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT
WE’RE ALL JUST SHEEP
I have no recollection
of our pure connection
It’s hard to grasp the bliss that’s passed
Like free souls who lost all control
we slip through the cracks and refuse to look back
when it’s lost, it’s gone, with no return
don’t ask for it, don’t whisper prayers
we once had wings but now we’re slayers
change is the bitter blackness that sucks us in
to spit us out with our heads in a spin
when it’ over you will stare at your reflection
i have no recollection of our beautiful connection
I’m sorry for making you cry
I’m sorry for the big wet tear in your eye
I’m sorry for my dirty words
For the flailing arms, just coz I know it hurts
I’m sorry for my demands
And heavy commands
You are my weakness so I throw you my strength
I never gave in, I’d never relent
I’m sorry for my attempted demise
It was not wise and I remember the fear in your eyes
My love made you cower
I ruled you with power
I never said sorry
You’re my precious
TIME TO FLY
I think its time to fly
Fasten the rope and take the dive
Feel the air in the sky
This time its just me, myself and I
Close your eyes and pray aloud
Feel the pressure rise from the ground
You can’t stop so keep going
Feel the peace growing and growing
In a while it may all be over
Sitting in your chair
With silver streaked hair
Remember the day you took that dive
Remember when it was your time to fly
TURMOIL THAT STINKS
You feel the day,
A troubling breeze, pass away
The pace of hours, minutes, seconds
Travel at a speed, your attention beckons
The blur of dust from the rolling day
Remember the moments you keep away
The turmoil of time that ticks in your ear
The stench of the day wont disappear
It wont last, this day they say
so take a breath, just rest, just lay.
This turmoil it stinks!
Now it’s over, it’s gone
with a sigh of relief he thinks.
WORLD AT YOUR FEET
The world is at your feet
But you have nowhere to go
No exact path or particular flow
The limit is the sky
We know we can’t fly
Standing on the ground
Staring all around
Begging your way to be found
Don’t crawl in the darkness
Just stroll in sunlight
Lift up those feet, now hold on tight
Don’t rest in the shade of another’s glory, make your point,
build your own story.
I tell you the struggle will follow
But when the world is at your feet
That’s your hope for tomorrow.
SHALL WE DANCE
Shall we dance? Make a lil romance?
Don’t fall on your face, this aint no race!
Lets just dance and make a lil romance.
I had a cake that took me back. took me back in time
to the great divine, the swingers mind, the cravers find.
The soft crumbleness, my delirious interest,
the licks i invest in this sweet caress.
Hail to the cake that took me back in time.
Took me back to a time thats now my tasty remind.
SOME DARK –
I poses the thoughts of a mortal mind.
Nothing but breath and sigh and time.
Everything stands between me and the end.
not to be saved by no mother, no Lover, no friend.
Struggle to peer through the dark unknown, the days and the surprise of the future I own.
Pondering…i feel numb, no stress, no knowing, no fear.
The mind does secretly whisper, ‘Hello death…are you near?’
