After after the end of the world after the flag got unfurled after more coffee and eggs after the cramps in both legs after the death and rebirth after the blast off from earth after the ingots of gold after the angels in snow we just seem to flow one way past to present - so they say there is no place we can stay just wave goodbye to yesterday after the remnants of silk after a moustache of milk after a night on the cross after a heartrending loss after the pilot got cleared after the zebra was speared after the red-painted toes after she took off her clothes we just seem to flow one way past to present - so they say there is no place we can stay just wave goodbye to yesterday after the temple went dark after they tore out his heart after the choice to stay here after big love trumped the fear we just seem to flow one way past to present - so they say there is no place we can stay just wave goodbye to yesterday 2X

Bracing freight train running through my chest then falls into the sky once the floor boards open wide no point to wonder why i can feel the endless dark pull me through the hole i grab words to keep me here each stanza like a pole i forgot the laundry i forgot to eat staring down the universe bracing with my feet sucked toward a final fall spinning down the black if i ever let it go i never could get back i gaze at the galaxy i feel the cosmos call i am just a slew of moments never home at all i forgot the laundry i forgot to eat staring down the universe bracing with my feet now i’m looking out both ways still breathing on this earth once my private bearings slipped the void my second birth i forgot the laundry i forgot to eat staring down the universe bracing with my feet

There’s A Light there’s a light at the mouth of the tunnel there’s a light shining round the bend there’s a light in the ebony midnight there’s a light when we reach the end there’s a light that cannot be extinguished there’s a light when we cop to what’s so there’s a light though the shadow is spreading there’s a light where the future could go i am no believer trodden in the dust i am no believer in tablets gone to rust yeah i am no believer just a few i trust still i sense the blazing boom or bust there’s a light when the hand gets extended there’s a light when the heart opens wide there’s a light when the lying’s suspended there’s a light where the avatar died i am no believer trodden in the dust i am no believer in tablets gone to rust yeah i am no believer just a few i trust still i sense the blazing boom or bust there’s a light at the cosmic beginning there’s a light in the guts of the beast there’s a light from the heart of the darkness there’s a light when the cell doors release when the cell doors release 2X

Jubilee i loved the castle such thick walls outside the peasants swore and stank i’d slapped a few when they got drunk and disrespected higher rank i was proud to be a prince some born to rule and some to follow that the rabble had their rights was something i could barely swallow then came the year of the jubilee the debts all cleared the prisoners free some danced with joy when they heard the horn the common ground again reborn i saw how they watched our girls lusting for them from the mud their bestial natures bursting forth how i longed to spill their blood then came the year of the jubilee the debts all cleared the prisoners free some danced with joy when they heard the horn the common ground again reborn we were the chosen ones of god all the grain stored in our tower i’d rather die like a cringing cur than see those villains grab more power then came the year of the jubilee the debts all cleared the prisoners free some danced with joy when they heard the horn the common ground again reborn

Great White Hope back in our old neighborhood a world now so remote when the kid danced round the ring we felt too proud to gloat the kid walked with his head held high he’d never had one cut he could feel our eyes on him a six pack for a gut three cheers for the great white hope the world so right when he jumped rope my daddy beat up from the plant said never even think you can’t we escaped the drenching heat each august at the lake when he knocked some sucker out we felt the tension break i was there the night he fell those dreads too quick and tough we walked home in silence our faith not near enough three cheers for the great white hope the world so right when he jumped rope my daddy beat up from the plant said never even think you can’t yeah those were the best of times let’s drink to way back when we knew where we were headed not so much since then three cheers for the great white hope the world so right when he jumped rope my daddy beat up from the plant said never even think you can’t

Intel trembling he held back the blood but still it spurted on the mud every day the same charade it’s the stuff of which he’s made he’s the site where the bomb went off so much rubble tossed aloft humpty dumpty broke since then some old specter filling in riddled with words no bullet proof vest stuck on the crack where the intel’s best 2X then he walked without a cane then he soared before the wind then he stretched toward the sun back before the shakes begun riddled with words no bullet proof vest stuck on the crack where the intel’s best 2X he can sense what they don’t see but is his fever fantasy shuffling down fluorescent halls he may never quit these walls riddled with words no bullet proof vest stuck on the crack where the intel’s best 2X

Rocket i always felt that i was best rising up to meet each test i always knew i was worst blessed and battered golden cursed i always felt that i was wrong far too broken to keep on i always knew i was right gods applauding solo flight back then in the long ago a shiny rocket aimed so high they still wonder where it flew blazing through the silent sky i always felt that i was real a range of nuance had to deal i always knew i was false dancing freestyle to their waltz i always felt that i was lost mangrove island tempest tossed i always knew i was found sinking into sacred ground back then in the long ago a shiny rocket aimed so high they still wonder where it flew blazing through the silent sky i always felt that i was here until the footprints disappeared i always knew i was gone beyond the last strains of a song back then in the long ago a shiny rocket aimed so high they still wonder where it flew blazing through the silent sky

I Fell i fell through the ice to the heart of creation i fell through the clouds to a break in the sky i fell through the clash to an infinite quiet i fell through the noise of a river run dry i fell through the reckless dreams of a fever i fell through the knowledge of nothing at all i fell through the shimmering horns of desire i fell through the building just starting to fall i fell and i fell and i’m still falling i fell and i fell and i can’t stop 2X i fell through the grace of eyes of compassion i fell through the haze of the tales i’d been taught i fell through a word that’d been promised forever i fell through the cries where the battle was fought i fell and i fell and i’m still falling i fell and i fell and i can’t stop 2X i fell til i spun out in altered awareness i fell til i hung with the moon muscled full i fell til the thunder attacked without warning i fell til the sun seemed to loosen its pull i fell and i fell and i’m still falling i fell and i fell and i can’t stop 2X

Long Plateau this is how it happened this is how it went whatever was intended whatever course was meant i cannot remember the ways it all began and yes there was big laughter when they announced the plan i’m staring down a long plateau where every breathing one must go 2X there was quite a struggle to implement design all the sudden breezes none of it was mine so much caged desire for conquest and for fame now it doesn’t matter much the outcomes of the game i’m walking down a long plateau where every breathing one must go 2X it all feels so quiet no more signs portend i’m sitting with a candle waiting on the end yeah this is how it happened this is how it went whatever was intended whatever course was meant i’m lying on a long plateau where every breathing one must go 2X

Heart Keeps Pumping they gonna teach you a thing or two about the stuff that dead souls do they gonna plot to take you down spitting lies until you drown the snake pretends to stand above and wraps himself in a cloak of love so many ready to destroy they cling for warmth to the mob mind ploy heart keeps beating though it don’t know why heart keeps pumping til the well runs dry 2X lost in the sprint to stay in place the only path a pointless race the snake provides his perfumed lair all the best folks hissing there they need a scapegoat to attack their good contrasted to all black the snake condemns in savage tone they clap in fear they’ll stand alone heart keeps beating though it don’t know why heart keeps pumping til the well runs dry 2X so there’s a choice laid out for you the zombie choir or claim what’s true that snake is coiling either way will you embody what you say heart keeps beating though it don’t know why heart keeps pumping til the well runs dry 2X

Cowboy once i was a cowboy rode out on the range i never sensed it coming the wrecking ball of change once i was a cowboy camped beneath the stars now i wander like a ghost between the speeding cars i preserve your picture locked in my valise stumbling through the tenements crawling on my knees once i was a cowboy the water cold and clear now i grasp at memories of what i held so dear once i was a cowboy a handshake closed the deal a thousand miles of open land the sense of peace i’d feel i preserve your picture locked in my valise stumbling through the tenements crawling on my knees once i was a cowboy but that was long ago i still dream of endless plains us galloping so slow i preserve your picture locked in my valise stumbling through the tenements crawling on my knees once i was a cowboy

The Nudist of New York she said i was buttoned up that all too much was hid time to let yourself hang out and that’s just what i did that old bee hive hustle had never suited me i was sick of floral ties and cloaked mendacity you must be decisive once you reach the fork and i saw i must become the nudist of new york isn’t that the current rage we all long to be known no one stays anonymous parading what they own and people sure took notice gawkers stopped to stare some they called me horrid names but still i chose to share you must be decisive once you reach the fork and i saw i must become the nudist of new york i might blog my inner life if there were one to write but only some can take it off and hightail through the night you must be decisive once you reach the fork and i saw i must become the nudist of new york
