Lyrics

The Pragmatist

Someone pull my head from the clouds, I’m choking on my own dreams. For isn’t time we all embraced The world for what it seems. Help me leave the playing field alone, And ignore the underdog, Eradicate the classic trash and, Step out of the sonnet fog. Always play by the ancient rules on which […]

Busy

Busy – why’d it have to be the swan song? Why’d it have to be the end-all, the be-all, The curtain fall, the easy so-long? Busy – why the obvious rehearsal? Why the obvious stop, friend, the line mend, The bookend, the final call? For I’m trying to be brave, Coming out of my winter […]

A List For All My Loved Ones

Each man alive reaches one reframing time, A chance to correct the compass of an unwilling mind, Well, mine came to me one late October day With my thoughts spiraling down like the wind dance that those oak leaves play: A list for all my loved ones. Well, I spent years imprisoned in a cynic’s […]

Dinosaur

Lorem ipsum dolorTried to grab the water, but it dodged my open hand, It fell off my fingers and onto the wasteland. Tired to grab the lifeline, but the cord was short and frayed, I’m falling in negative airspace. I’m that last one of the last one of the dinosaurs. They built the world around […]

Deep Trouble

Lorem ipsum dolorBought myself a length of rope – one inch long, my friends. Managed to hang myself with it on the shorter end. Always in the hardest sections, I take a turn for worse. I need some help to change direction and let my feet touch earth. Somewhere else the sun is rising – […]

Connect To Me

Winter was the cruelest season, but the weather never played a part, Rather, questions of environment and questions of the heart. Wish I had more answers than I currently possess, But the snowfall snowballed and now the weight’s on my chest. Connect to me. Connect to me. Wish it were as easy as being frozen […]

Star Lesson

I could have went to school by just looking at the stars, And soaking in all they have to teach. Like: sometimes you can’t help but fall – insignificant and small, And that some things are always out of reach. And relearn how to look around. You think the SoHo talk would end with a […]

Free Pass

Yellow shirt donned. Sunday proud. Loved by the broken. Adored by the crowds. The fastest man ever on two wheels, A perfect medley of blood, sweat, and steel. But in the darkened rooms, fueled by ego fire: The spent syringe, the elaborate lie. Free Pass. Gray suit donned. Wall Street King. Good Earth hanging by […]

Disclosure

The night they laid Jim Watson down and put him in his grave, I came out fro the cold, black cloud and grabbed the only spade. I avoided all the stares and pitched the dirt down where he lay, Nothing brings a town out like a tragedy, they say. But if you knew Jim Watson […]

Freezing

A gray-haired poet once warned me: The world will end in ice. But if it all went down on this white winter walk, It would be alright. In the long list of doomsayers: The preacher, scientist, and thief, I’ll take the poet over anyone, Any prediction, any belief. Freezing. Our footsteps barely make a sound, […]

Latchkey

These bones don’t hold up so well any more, They’re more like daisy stems, That held steady for a hundred days, But too much time caused too much bend. My broken body, that’s the easy part. The latchkey – ain’t a busted knee – It’s my stunted heart. My stunted heart. My back once held […]

Anchor

Darker than the inside of a coffin, Roof is rattling like a big ole drum, I’m out standing in the fury, Watching both hell and highwater come. Don’t know how long it’s been raining. Don’t know when it’ll turn to gray, But this here bridge, I know it needs an anchor, Or else, it’ll off […]
