Time -2016

Time is a bitch that gives and takes

I don’t know which is which it gets harder every day

The long road I walk is covered in weeds

For the horticulturalist was recently poisoned

Maybe you can tell miss Polly to watch her dolly

The kids on the street have turned into thieves

Since it was revealed Saint Nick was a fraud

They gathered their pitchforks and headed north

The mayor of town sat in a merry-go-round

He politiced his way to the front of the crowd

People like him weren’t meant to wait

Royalty wasn’t common among people

Up jumped the Ripper with a rifle in his hand

And aimed it at everybody’s number one man

He said “Any lasts requests”, the mayor said “Stairway to Heaven”

The Ripper sang but his gun was out of tune

Meanwhile, reality checks in, the kids were still sinning

The mayors body laid lifeless, the Ripper was still grinning

Time kept on moving to the beat of its own drum

It went back for seconds, leaving minutes for none

Time was a gambler of sorts

He once bet the human race on a second-placed horse

He was drunk on power, vodka and cocaine

His head went flying never to return

Alas, God came up with a master plan

After all, there was no bigger time-waster than time itself

So he picked up his watch and turned back the clock

And declared “it’s time to live happily ever after”

Time Itself – 2016

Show me some rainy eyed women, I’ll give em’ some change

Currency in the form of wisdom go on and leave your man estranged

Follow me through your darkest dreams and I’ll show you the light

We can do the old ballroom waltz on the edge of a knife

I may be young in age but I was born an old soul

I blamed my luck on alcohol and let the sins roll

I can feel a world weighing me down, I can hear the night call

I can see my lover rambling as she walks out the door

His mind worked overtime to hang with time itself

He bottled up his soul and placed it on a familiar shelf

I was drunk, she was stoned I was drawn to her like a child

She pushed her blonde her to the side and cut me a little smile

I walked over to her, my heart felt colder than ice

and asked“Why don’t I know you?” she said “Because nobody does.”

Her mind went tripping on a journey hunting for gold

She walked away with his heart, but left a lonely soul

His mind worked overtime to hang with time itself

He bottled up his hopes and dreams and traded them in for wealth

He bought her the brightest jewel the world had ever seen

But when darkness filled her world, even Rubies won’t dare to dream

I’m but a memory placed on a familiar shelf

Another victim at the hand of time itself

Movie Star- 2016

I drempt up a dream of a life I’d lived before

There was a strange man looking at me, he had no remorse

He staggered over and pulled a flask from his left pocket and offered me a drink.

He said “Things aren’t as bad as they seem when a boy dares to think”

Action goes the pictures, a movie was made about a dead old maid

Who sang her last goodbye to Poirot and the marmalade skies

The camera is the only truth to a boy like me who needed proof

That people aren’t as bad as I thought, but it turns out they might be worse

I spent too many years in fear of what’s yet to come.

When I die will I stand before God or the rising sun?

And if I don’t pass the test, will I end up like the rest

A pessimist at best perched on the silver screen

Action goes the pictures, a movie was made about a dead old maid

Who sang her last goodbye to Poirot and the marmalade skies

The camera is the only truth to a boy like me who needed proof

That people aren’t as bad as I thought, but it turns out they might be worse

Action goes the pictures, a movie was made about a dead old maid

Who sang her last goodbye to Poirot and the marmalade skies

The camera is the only truth to a boy like me who needed proof

That people aren’t as bad as I thought, but it turns out they might be worse

The Lovers’ Lament – 2016

Here’s a tale of the outlaw, a lover that I once had

Her hair long and burgundy, her lips a wine soaked red

She spoke like a boxer, and hit a sucker punch to my heart

The audience cried loud, but I was down for the count from the start

She offered me a wish, I hoped I’d change my mind

Mysterious woman, hope will only rob me blind

It seemed so fitting that the winter winds swept me off my feet

As you left me at the alter, people screamed yonder

The priest took his money and offered no receipt

The people in attendance took off in discreet

The News read ‘local loser finds a new way to lose her’

Laugh it up while the laughing’s good

So I set off on a journey away from the people I know

Through the valleys and the cities, t1he rain and blistering snow

Maybe fate will be the one who greets me at the end of the road

He asked me where home is, I’ll arrive when my feet take me there

God and me – 2016

I don’t think about anyone other than myself these days

The worlds shrinking I know, the worlds parting ways

I don’t think about anyone other than myself these days

Even when skies are gray and I crave a woman, I just need myself

I don’t feel anything about love, I don’t feel anything about the chill of life

I don’t think anyone other than myself could heal the wounds

So I might have gotten a gun and shot up the place

Well you see Hayley Mary, the mother machine was there

I promised her I’d write her a Murder Ballad

I promised her I’d write her a Murder Ballad

I promised her I’d write her a Murder Ballad

I didn’t say she’d hear my sing it though

Well I was an outlaw from 63′ to 69′

I drunk so much alcohol, I fucked so many whores in that time

I don’t care about God

I don’t care about Satan either

I don’t care about Buddha or anyone who could greet me at the gates

I hope the gates are locked when I get there, I wouldn’t be surprised

I heard if you pretend to give a shit when you die, they’ll let you into Heaven

God wouldn’t care about the people I’d killed, the people I’d loved

God wouldn’t care about the sounds of screaming heartache

He’d welcome with a grin, he’d welcome me into his place

He’d welcome with a grin, he’d welcome me into his place

All his children are there

Well, he say’s ‘right this way, I’ve got to show something behind the gate”

He pulled out a pistol and put it in his hand and aimed at my head and said

“Fuck you, you’re dead”

I fell down the clouds

I fell down the clouds

I fell down the clouds

And I fell down through the ether

Well I hit planet Earth

I hit planet Earth for the second time in my life

He said “Boy you’re gonna be a guitar player”

He said “You gotta sing people some sounds”
“You Gotta remember my name, I’m a big player in Heaven”

Happy Song – 2016

Happy song, happy song

Happy song makes me happy

Happy skies, oh happy skies, happy skies in my mind

Happy skies in flight of my plane as it goes

As I’m 8 miles from home

Happy moon, happy moon

like a dog I howl to the moon

Like the sun, like the sun

It shines on me, it shines on me

Happy lovers rediscover happy lovers love each other

Happy skies hold all the lies of the feeling that you tried

But there ain’t no one as happy as me right now

I hear the kick drum, I hear the bass, I hear the electric guitar in my face

I hear the sound that the band plays every night for the same tired crowd

Baby come back with me, come back home with me.

Jimmy and Betsy – 2016

Jimmy died riding lightning, it was very exciting

He waved his gun in the air and said “I’m home”

There’s Betsy she was my lover, I wanna help her rediscover who I am

A real son of man

Betsy don’t don’t you love me, you know its true

That I could never live without you

This train feels like the green mile, I walked the miracle mile

while my brothers die

I can hear the whistle sound, another man sent to the ground

The Warden won’t stop till he gets a raise

“Warden I can help you if you let me”
“I can make the skies go falling down”

I’m standing at Gods gate, I heard court was rearranged

“Come now darling, the case was always rigged”

They want me sitting in Hells chair

‘Oh Lord’ they want me to sing

Last words in a will written by me, I don’t want you to mystify me

I’ve seen Mystique and she ain’t that great

So tell me you love me now and I will show you Heavens clouds

I set up a tent near the Grand Canyon

Will you come camping with me love

I can’t see me living in a world without you
