Mote

When you see the spiral turning through alone
And you feel so heavy that you just can't stop it
When the sea of madness turns you into stone
Picture of your life shoots like a rocket
All the time
 
Put 'me' in the equation it's alright
I've seen you moving in and out of sight
My friends tell me it's all cut through you
From nowhere, to nowhere
Cut together, cut through
 
I'm island-bound, a mote inside my eye
And I can't see you breathing as before
I am airless, a vacuum child
And I can't stand to reason at your door
In this time
 
Put 'me' in the equation it's alright
I've seen you moving in and out of sight
My friends tell me it's all cut through yo
From nowhere, to nowhere
Come together
 
I'm down in the daytime out of sight
Comin' in from dreamland I'm on fire
I can see it's all been here before
Dream a dream that lies right at your door
 
When the seasons circle sideways out of turn
And words don't speak just fall across the carpet
You're just in time to watch the fire burn
It seems a crime but your face is bright you love it
All the time

White Noise

A dark space
A shelter to hide in
To drift by
Honest, I
Never thought you'd find me where I hide
I'm such a lonely host
Keep you in view
Let you close, then I'll choke
Is there a simple hope to keep?
 
My love
A sharp knife
A cold night
A young fit in a wildfire
A silence surrounded in white noise
Your love beat against my own leaves
A new flame for molding
A cleansing, refining
 
Steady breath
Finger on a loose gun
A thin line
Can't take aim
No target to lock to
To hold on
But if you love someone
Do you owe the sound to the wild around you?
Is an unspoken love dark soil in my soul?
 
My love
A sharp knife
A cold night
A young fit in a wildfire
A silence surrounded in white noise
Your love beat against my own leaves
A new flame for molding
A cleansing, refining

Tom Violence

My violence is a dream
A 'real dream'
A skinny arm
A crush on living sin
My violence
Is a sleeping head
Nodding out to rising bliss
I left home for experience
Carved 'suk for honesty' on my chest
My violence is the number
Coming out of prayer
Find it in the father
Find it in a girl
 
There's a thing in my memory
Hoilding on for dear life
With a feeling of secrets
Beating up under my flesh
My tongue is tied
I'm sleeping nights awake
Tom violence is a dream
Coming out of a girl

Pre War Blues

I got the pre-war blues
I just wanna see the world through different eyes
I got the pre-war blues
I just wanna see the world through different eyes
I got the pre-war blues
 
Here's to those who wait and want it all
Here's to those who fake and steal it all
Here's to those who fake and steal it all.

Mary-Christ

Talking to a punker priest just doggin' the breeze 'bout being a tree
(This is a free land)
Along comes Mary Christ skatin' light on ice says there's no one high
(Hey mary-christo)
 
You gotta go
You got a date now
Yeah I know
Should not be late now
Sensed by x-ray eyes her spirit spies into my life
(I found it out now)
Wrap my head in skin says now I'm in to the candy sin
(Yeah spit it out now)
Every time
She sing that love song
Every time
I guess she's right/wrong
Angels in a devil skirt buys me a shirt says I hope you like
(I hope you)
Hope I hope you like like like you hope that I explode
 
Here we go
We've waited so long
Yeah I go
Mary too come along
 
Talking to a punker priest just doggin' the breeze 'bout bein' a tree
(This is a free land)
Along comes Mary Christ skatin' light on ice says there's no-one high
 
Gotta go
We got a date now
Yeah I know
Should not be late now
Sensed by x-ray eyes her spirit spies into my life
(Burn it out now)
Angel in a devil skirt buy me a shirt says I hope you lie
(Yeah spit it now)
Here we go
I've waited so long
Yeah I know
But Mary too come along

Simpletons

[p=verse]
Simpletons cross my path,
I don’t know this anymore
Looking after me,
I don’t hear them anymore
[/p]
[p=verse]
The writer send the words,
I don’t read them anymore
I will wait for you, until the day
Yes I will wait for you, if I may
[/p]
[p=verse]
The day’s a longer time for you
And it will all be fine for you
Giants and dragons fight,
I don’t feel them anymore
[/p]
 
[p=verse]
Apples and oranges,
I can’t taste them like before
The simple things again,
I don’t feel them anymore
[/p]
 
[p=verse]
I will wait for you, until the day
Yes I will wait for you, if I may
The day’s a longer time for you
And it will all be fine for you.
[/p]

Lipstick Wonder Woman

Skip school, quit your job only a fool miss this kind of ocassion
Rock you dancing shoes, Hollywood blues
Take a permanent vacation
 
Let your hair down, spin around downtown,
Give me that kiss amaze me
Well everybody needs a little bit of love
And a night that's a little bit crazy
 
Take my hand, take my heart now honey, my super lady
Lick your lips, shake your hips, we on the flip side
Come on pretty mama amaze me
 
Everybody needs a woman like that, with a kiss she saves de day
If ever I'm in trouble, she's a running on the double
With her lipstick wonder woman ways
 
Black boots, white jeans, so tight, just right and oh so mean
She moves fast in her pink sunglasses and busts out of that limousine
The party scene was just getting bumping, and she's taking over me
The stereos up, so lets get down
The hero and the villian believe
 
Take my hand, take my heart now honey, my super lady
Lick your lips, shake your hips, we on the flip side
Come on pretty mama amaze me
 
Everybody needs a woman like that, with a kiss she saves de day
If ever I'm in trouble, she's a running on the double
With her lipstick wonder woman ways

Small Time Blues

Deep in this melody's a cool fire
Longing to stay with you
So wide awake and feeling inspired
So much that we can do
I wanna hear you tonight
Wrapped up in low candle light
 
Please stay I wanna hear you play
The small time blues
That's all we've got tonight
You and me, we're bound by harmony
This wild desire is fed by reaching higher
And we're still reaching higher
With them small time blues
Small time blues
 
Here in my hide away I'm alright
Safe in this song with you
Oh, the sweet sound we make is locked up tight
All that we sing is true
You count it off and we start
We know this number by heart
 
Please stay I wanna hear you play
The small time blues
That's all we've got tonight
You and me, we're bound by harmony
This wild desire is fed by reaching higher
And we're still reaching higher
With them small time blues
Small time blues

Up To The Sky

Verse 1
Why the long face love
Where is that pick me up
I know I haven't tried
But I will - this time

And is there hope in your heart
Well I'm sure there was at the start
And see the shadows flickerin' by

As it warms you you fall into.
I turn to listen now
To what you have to say

Rome wasn't built this way
But I will listen now

And is there hope in your heart

Well now they're nearly up to the sky
And as you find it you hide it
 
Outro
As it warms you you fall into.

Midnight (The Hanging Tree)

Are you, are you
Coming here with me
To run by my side so we can be free?
Strange things do happen here
It's the time to leave
If we met at midnight at the willow tree
 
Are you, are you
Coming here with me
To run by my side so we can be free?
Strange things do happen here
It's the time to leave
If we met at midnight at the willow tree

To run by my side so we can be free?
Strange things do happen here
It's the time to leave
If we met at midnight at the willow tree
 
Are you (are you), are you (are you)
Coming here with me

Coming here with me
To run by my side so we can be free?

How Can You Buy Killarney?

An American landed on Erin's green isle
He gazed at Killarney with rapturous smile
'How can I buy it?', he said to his guide
'I'll tell you how', with a smile he replied
 
How can you buy all the stars in the skies?
How can you buy two blue Irish eyes?
How can you purchase a fond mother's sighs?
How can you buy Killarney?
 
Nature bestowed all her gifts with a smile
The emerald, the shamrock, the Blarney
When you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney
 
Yes, only when you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney

Treason

Verse 1
It all starts here with my disgrace
I give you my life then I run in haste
In this false life something needs to give
Tell me a reason why this isn't a treason

I swear I'm back but then it turns out it's only a season
So tell me, tell me I'm wrong
With my two lips I will praise Your name

Then I turn around and only curse and blame
I give in, strength is thin, adding to my shame
Tell me a reason why this isn't a treason
Tell me, tell me I'm wrong

Break, Break, Break

Break, break, break,
On thy cold gray stones, O Sea !
And I would that my tongue could utter
The thoughts that arise in me.
 
O, well for the fisherman's boy,
That he shouts with his sister at play !
O, well for the sailor lad,
That he sings in his boat on the bay !
 
And the stately ships go on
To their haven under the hill

Miami

Poisoned blood runs in my veins
And I feel like I’m running
Neon lights shine on the streets
My town looks like Miami
Is it only a tease?
Why my head feels so funny?
 
Devil counted my tears
In the search for nirvana
I have spent all these years
Looking back on my drama
 
It is only a tease
But I finally found ya
 
Take me out
Take me out for a night ride
I have missed your hands
Kiss me under the moonlight
Before all this ends
Take me out
Take me out for the last flight
Where my body blends with the sky
Kiss me under the moonlight
Before all it dies
Before all it dies
Before all it dies
 
I’ve got a couple reasons to believe in something so outrageous
Show me what’s inside you know this feeling is contagious
Got a couple reasons to believe that you will save us
Will you save us?
Will you save us?
Tired broken down you’re still collecting all our pieces
Hoping that with time we’ll see the light and it will fix us
Got a couple reasons to go somewhere where our peace is
Where my peace is
Where my peace is
(Where my peace is) x7
 
Take me out
Take me out for a night ride
I have missed your hands
Kiss me under the moonlight
Before all this ends
Take me out
Take me out for the last flight
Where my body blends with the sky
Kiss me under the moonlight
Before all it dies
Before all it dies
Before all it dies
 
Poisoned blood runs in my veins
And I feel like I’m running
Neon lights shine on the streets
My town looks like Miami
Is it only a tease?
Why my head feels so funny?

Come not, when I am dead

Come not, when I am dead,
To drop thy foolish tears upon my grave,
To trample round my fallen head,
And vex the unhappy dust thou wouldst not save.
There let the wind sweep and the plover cry

Western Isles

Verse 1
Live in Western isles
Learn to love the wind
As it forces you to bend
Love those western smiles
 
Verse 2
And the time is gotta run
When you feel your day is done
Cultivate those hours
The spray gets in your hair
 
Verse 3
Love that bracing air
As the cloud above you towers
And the time is gotta run
When you feel your day is done
 
Verse 4
Hide those spies away
They're talking too
The other side today
They're comin' thru.
 
Verse 5
Dancin' on the shore
Runnin' thru the stones
Love these island homes
And the warmth behind the door
 
Outro
And the time is gotta run
When you feel your day is done.

The Ragman's Ball

Come listen to me for a while
Me good friends one and all
And I'll sing to you a verse or two
About a famous ball
Now the ball was given by some friends
Who lived down Ashe Street
In a certain house in the Liberties
Where the ragmen used to meet
 
Well the names were called at seven o'clock
And every man was on the spot
And to show respect for the management
Every ragman brought his mot
I must admit that I brought mine
At twenty five minutes to eight
And the first to stand up was Kieran Grace
For to tell me I was late
 
Then up jumps Humpy Soodelum
And he says: 'I think somehow'
By the ways are all going on tonight
Is a looking for a row
Now listen here, Grace if you want your face
You'd better not shout or bawl
There's a lot of hard chews gonna be here tonight
To respect the ragman's ball
 
Well for eating we had plenty now
As much as we could hold
We drank Brady's Loopline porter
Until round the floor we rolled
In the midst of all the confusion
Someone shouted for a song
When up jumps oul' John Lavin and sings
'Keep rollin' your barrel along'
 
Then says my one

Painter Man

Went to college, studied art
To be an artist, make a start
Studied hard, gained my degree
But no one seemed to notice me
 
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
 
Tried cartoons and comic books
Dirty postcards, woman's books
Here was where the money lay
Classic art has had its day
 
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
 
Do adverts for TV
Household soap and brands of tea
Labels all around tin cans
Who would be a painter man?
 
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?
 
La la la, la la la
La la la, la la la la
Painter man, painter man
Who would be a painter man?

Der Flötist an den Toren des Morgengrauens

All night long I play the flute
Und ich kriege nie genug
All night long I play the flute for you

Und ich kriege nie genug
All night long I play the flute for you

Mayhem

Mayhem in your eyes
Some say that’s no surprise
If only good men die
Then who the fuck am I?
 
Mayhem
Mayhem
Mayhem
Mayhem
 
She crawled out of bed, wiping the sleep from her eye
I opened the door, unprepared for the weather outside
I threw on my shades to hide from the sun in the sky
I spat on the pavement, ignoring the demons inside
 
Walk of shame, take me home
Home is where I belong
I promise I’ll do no more wrong
I might even sing you a song
 
Walk of shame, take me home
Home is where I belong
I promise I’ll do no more wrong
I might even sing you a song

Demon Eyes

I am one you called -
Deep in the night you lost your soul.
Through demon eyes you saw
What lies behind the mask of life.
To ride with me - to cross the firesea...
Were these your greatest dreams?
Eternal wisdom you will earn -
Far away from present days.
Through demon eyes you saw
The spheres I left for centuries.
Shadows of the worlds beyond -
They touch you like a burning wind.
A circlegate of neverending journeys
In close to the eyes
You now call your own.
Walk the path of spirit
Into dimensions unknown.
Through demon eyes you died.

Bad News Blues

Bad news on my TV screen
Bad news on the magazines
Bad news on the newspaper
Bad news on the elevator
 
Bad news on the street
Bad news in my car
Bad news under my feet
Bad news at the bar
 
All over my clothes
Under my hat
On the radio
In the laundromat
 
Hangin' in the air
Layin' on the ground
Walkin' up the stairs
Bad news all around
 
No matter where I go
I can't get away from it
Don't you know
I'm knee-deep in it?
 
Who's gonna believe
Liars and lunatics
Fools and thieves
And clowns and hypocrites?
 
Gluttony and greed
And that ain't the worst of it
All the news you could read
All the news that's fit to print
 
Bad news on my left
Bad news on my right
Bad news in the morning
Bad news at night
 
In my 'frigerator
Bad news in my sink
On my typewriter
Bad news in my drink
 
Bad news on the walls
All over the floor
Down the hall
Knockin' at the door
 
Bad news in my mail
Follow me home
Bad news on my trail
Bad news on my phone
 
No matter where I go
I can't seem to get away from it
Don't you know, don't you know
I'm knee-deep in it?
 
Who's gonna believe
Liars and lunatics
Fools and thieves
And clowns and hypocrites?
 
Gluttony and greed
And that ain't the worst of it
All the news you could read
All the news that's fit to print

Refuge

As their extended hands touch
The forest trees upon the land
They are embraced in destiny
Stationed participants grand
 
No matter what comes to pass
Witnessing survival of perishing
They stand in communal presence
A biodome silently nourishing
 
Yet should drought come near
Should it overtake and spread
To quench the life bearing it out
Ages pass to bring a cycle lead
 
What boone shall we know
When a barren land is all land
Each, a caregiver and custodian
Of a refuge plainly inexpendable

Sans Soul

He lives always in shadows
By other men, he is obscured
His envy is all consuming
The time devoted to his folly
A waste to being's betterment
In the fires of embitterment
A land where there is neither
Rhyme nor reason, unmetered
The voice of men stifled
By that selfish intention
An attempt to overshadow them
Portrayed pathetically so
 
Never to be great, done
Not to be entrusted, none
Not to be embraced, save a bite
So is the nature of a viper
To lash out with malevolence
Blindly striking, spent so
Without compassion so innate
Not benevolence to lend
A lonely, a meager life led
Lasting far too long, pettish
Only self-wrought gratification
To crawl upon the earth
And have to look up to all
 
No thanks to find fetid here
In a world of meek minds
Amid the hissing jeers
The finger-pointing sneers
When others see the bluff
They feel dismay to know
The wasted moments, hours
Discarded so wastefully
At the irrational insistence of
This reptilian demagogue
That creeps to his burrow
Where he can feel less lost
Less neglected, a victim
A dubious world, sans soul

Stained Glass

In the rays of light brilliant
Obscuring an ugly world
A thin veneer of aspiration
That beckons men to hope
Beyond the mundane being
The artistic quaff joyous
 
The voice of grand creativity
Is heard in heavenly designs
So that even stilled silence
The angelic muses euphonic
Touch the soul of the heeder
The rosettas of reverence
Magnificent in noble grace
 
On those panes of dimension
There is a world celestial
Transcends mortality's bounds
In the gleaming rays angelic
Warming the fragile soul
In the shimmering grace
That inspires our hopes
Causing the spirit to ascend

Steps

So much treading upon the stairs
No one can recount their number
But those who take account
To grieve and complain so
Never reach the top landing
Always viewing the next step
 
Only grasping the handrail
With a grip wrenching, immovable
Their voice griping in effort
And a gaze downward ever
Trudging footsteps labored so
No mechanical ease to summit
 
Yet there are those who would not
To take notice of the effort made
To reach the elevations incurred
For there is a joy in the journey
An adventure on the track upward
Its pleasure in the ascension
 
The pinnacle though seldom seen
Too many give up or lose their way
For sojourning is a lengthy trek
And character is wrought in toils
Toils elevating to a different view
A divine panorama of magnificence
 
An ethereal visage grand
That wrought perspective unearthly
And measures of importance seen
Upon a variable value scale unkept
Evenly balanced upon the landing
Still climbing up the steps
 

19/10/2020

Y2K

The millennium's crest
An edge that topples
Chaotic maylay about
Everything running amuck
 
Panic in the streets
Doom and despair said
Worldwide conundrum
Still, here we are
 
...Y3K and yet another rerun

Kicks

Girl, you thought you found the answer on that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin' the world still gets you uptight
Well, here's nothin' that you ain't tried To fill the emptiness inside
But when you come back down, girl
Still ain't feelin' right
 
(And don't it seem like)
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
(Oh, you don't need kicks, girl)
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
(You just need help, girl)
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight
 
No, but not with kicks
You just need help, girl
Well you think you're gonna find yourself a little piece of paradise
But it ain't happened yet, so girl, you better think twice
Don't you see no matter what you do
You'll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin'
You'll have to pay the price
 
(And don't it seem like)
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
(Oh, you don't need kicks, girl)
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
(You just need help, girl)
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight
 
No, you don't need kicks
To help you face the world each day
That road goes nowhere
I'm gonna help you find yourself another way
 
(And don't it seem like)
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
(Oh, you don't need kicks, girl)
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
(You just need help, girl)
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight
 
(And don't it seem like)
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
(Oh, you don't need kicks, girl)
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
(You just need help, girl)
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight

Cod

There upon air racks
In a frigid scene dry the cod
The racks are lean, cod few
Unregulated harvests o'er
 
The banks of Newfoundland
They abounded with cod
Bot too little was done, too late
Fishing villages silent, still
 
Today the waters are yet calm
Undisturbed, there are no cod
The fish they once ate vanished
So they cannibalized their young
 
Know in the heart what to do
Pillaging the water, the land
Consequences unimagined
An empty ocean, overfished

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'
 
Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due, I know
 
Watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
Watched his hair been turnin' grey
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away
Oh yes I know it
 
(Yeah!) He's been workin' so hard
(Yeah!) I've been workin' too, baby
(Yeah!) Every night and day
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)
 
We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
'Coz girl, there's a better life for me and you
 
Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true, yeah
You'll be dead before your time is due, I know it
 
Watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
Watched his hair been turnin' grey, yeah
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away
I know he's been workin' so hard
 
(Yeah!) I've been workin' too, baby
(Yeah!) Every day baby
(Yeah!) Whoa!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)
 
We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you
Somewhere baby, somehow I know it
 
We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you
Believe me baby
I know it baby
You know it too

Each Night

Each night when all has ended
And sleep must be attended to
There is always that feeling
Thoughts of something undone
The full extent unaccomplished
 
Many tasks, many days going
They pass seasons to the years
Some mundane, some noble
Still a whisper of always more
The worry it will be forgotten
 
Still to be focused is to live
The adventure is self wrought
Consequences keep fear near
So a balance tips to dare be
Away from those who won't do
 
No one says to ride them all
But at least ride some near
For each night dreams recall
Each day gone by so dear
Soon it will be time to go on
