LYRICS

Stranger

I feel stranger every day

Further removed from control of my fate

And lost in the a city sound

Kick around my life

Like a stone on the ground

Contending for futures is a game for the proud

And I’m tired

It’s too heavy and menial now

Got the whole world in my hands

Just like Jesus the God that’s within

He can make me a better man

Like folks who get cheers

From the highest grand stands

With their fire gel lights

And a camera lens

It’s too heavy

It’s too many things to carry

I stare into my eyes

Reach in them deep with my left and right

pull out the rose and the weed

The thrills and what kills

Until nothing remains

You mind is just wires

Needing pulled and replaced

Until heavy 

Gets replaced with empty.


So strange to be

So strange to see

Everything

You Were In Love

You were in love

More than one time

And you convinced your mind

Something’s not quite right

So You took flight

 

The better in you is hard to see

When your caught up in the sway

Of pain and peace

All is well that ends, you’ll see

A tiny dark for a true necessity

It’s alright

 

You were young once

Just that one time

You lost your shape somehow

And you pick yourself up again

Stand up proud

 

The better in you is hard

to see

When your caught in the sway

Of pain and peace

All is well that ends, you’ll see

A tiny dark for a true necessity

It’s alright

 

 

You could end it

Before it’s time

Recline and decompose

Dim the lights

Draw curtains and

End the show

That’s an exit

A final bow

But heroes are never born

Their made again and again

And restored

 

The better in you is hard

to see

When your caught in the sway

Of pain and peace

All is well that ends, you’ll see

A tiny dark for a true necessity

It’s

Us and Our Skin

You reclined

I sat adjacent

We spoke about the weather

And the humid days we dread

You drew a light

I sat up straighter

At the mention of your mother

I thought of my kin

 

We were following their trails

Humming the same song

 

We talked and shared some things

And I bummed a cigarette

We said the things that had hurt and named W

I thought internally

This is like family

Examining the tethers between

Us and our skin

 

Is it true

That we are parallel?

An anam cara,

Do you feel the love I’ve found?

Realized

That I’m not a stranger

Caught in the wonder

In the spirit in the ground

 

We were following the trail

Humming the same song

 

We talked and shared some things

I bummed a cigarette

We said the things that had hurt and named W

I thought internally

This is like family

Examining the tethers between

Us and our skin
