Drunk and Disorderly

Here’s a toast to the potion You look good but do you understand I’ve got so much devotion not for you – for the glass in my hand that looks me in the eye it’s looking at me in the eye This glass you see in front of me is looking me in the eye, eye, eye I love you …

Up Here Down There

From up here Skimming the tops of the clouds 6 miles away from the crowds I’m closer to you Out there I can see infinite life I see the day and the night black red then blue All around the squares There are people rushing everywhere with the orders of the day agendas to prepare What do people care when …

Wish You Were Here

I make a shape out the city lights and narrow my depth of field looks like a test for the colour blind blurring the fake and the real The only things that we can share The sunsets, the stars, the rain So I’ll just sit down here and stare Scratching marks into the wall each day With every second that …

Reaching the Age of Reason

The line I chalk is moving beyond my fingertips The observations and the thoughts in my mind are ripe Genetic engineering myself – No I just don’t need anyone else I’m wide awake and finally breaking through to the age of, Through to the age of reason The numbers count up and down in the calculations I watch the words …

The Last Bastion of My Mind

Welcome to the long corridor of dreams Take your time and slowly, carefully choose any door in your mind We’ve got lots of time This is where you’ll stay Every night and day Slowly close your eyes you don’t need them here in the dark The rats will heighten your senses and help shed your tears Help you fight your …

Beautiful Silence

So you never went to work today Cut the ropes and then you set your boat astray And as you sail away You’re just looking at the open sea Lots of promises no guarantees What will be will be There isn’t really any words when you’re devoid of sensation There isn’t really any words that can come after such violence …

Every Little Light Will Shine

Here comes the sun shining on everyone now that you can see the things that we have done so come on come on Here comes the light Making everything so bright Bringing out the best in everybody’s life now It’s alright Here come the stars reminding us of what we are Every little light will shine and play its part …

Silent Cavities

Condemnation such an ugly thing Never here when he’s with you But when he watches as you’re closing the door The fingers on the trigger I don’t know what he’s going to do Imagination such a deadly thing The mind can wander out of view And when he thinks about the shrinking room The fingers on the trigger I don’t …

The Greatest Invention

This could be the greatest invention I’ve ever seen lucid and clean A gleaming machine Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight rising up into the light this is for you a room with a view so bright This could be an amazing addition to history frozen in time forever to shine as a mystery whatever the weather the …

Apathy

A little to the left, calamity A little too right and you’re history Lying in the middle I’m comatose I can’t decide with so much treachery Watching as the system replicates Patching up the holes, and reprobates Underneath the cover with poetry I choose to hide my raw apathy This is my world, and where I am I’m doing the …

A Moment of Magic

In a world of cynics and egos where you walk a road made of glass Everyone’s a walking placebo Everyone’s so jaded and crass Fading so fast But when you lift up your face and deliver that radiant glow Well you could light up the streets with the warmth of your magical soul When the kids are all out of …

This Is the End

This is the end I hope you had fun And that my elementary ways didn’t complicate your day My heart just yearns to stay But my mouth has the final say so this is the end This is the time to empty your mind of the things you could have said to prevent the tears we shed I’m not leaving …
