Will American dollars do?
The Big Apple will satisfy your appetite
Life's for the taking if you dare to take a bite
Big yellow taxis honking horns
Ladies wandering on streets until dawn
Vendors selling hotdogs which smell so good
The land of plenty - you could if you would
Invest in the neon dreams & buy the fairytale
Then you would later have such stories to regale

you would later have such stories to regale
like the time you ran with your foot in a pale
making it so easy to follow your trail
the cops had a laugh and put you in jail

fed bread and water that both tasted stale
you knew this could never find you the grail
using your head to hammer a nail
turned out to be another crazy tale

turned out to be another crazy tale
on the lam on the run tryin to set sail
avoiding extradition and the need to make bail
sailing south with my back to the empire

hawiaan shirt, eye patch, hippy helmet, guitar
pirate philosophies contemplate why we ARRRRRH
the compass is broken and we might not make it far
we can live large on the seas till we expire

we can live large on the seas till we expire
only the sun salt fish and wind shall judge thee
the moon stars clouds and oceans as a guide
my masks placed upon me by society I may remove
and replace with the only true me I know how to be
loved and adored by many that see through it
like a telescope filled with rainbows of dreams
may I play forever in hope of understanding
and run through the sands of happiness
sailing away into my own special places
with the courage and patience to always succeed

nice work


with the courage and patience to always succeed
and with trust in my own definitions
do the next right thing with turned over hope
i can avoid extended decisions

the next right thing takes some intuition
but I know straight up what is wrong
the sins of the past can be tomorrow's mission
i believe theres a place i belong

I believe there's a place I belong
Free from the pain of it all
Open your eyes and you'll find that inside
lies the truth that we all like to call

drawn into the depths of rendition
I often find that I miss the big picture
A festering mess that the rest seem to fix
So that all I have left is the written

all I have left is the written
all that i trust is now dead
all that i loved has been bitten
all that ive said has been said

all that i want has been wanted
all i regret has been bled
all that i have faced undaunted
all of the worlds with no cred

all of the places ive been to
all of the years that were lost
all the lives lost without a clue
all the fines paid without cost

all of the things that ive hoped for
all of the things i wont see
all the losses this side of the slammed door
all who refuse their way just to be

all that wonder destraght that keep asking questions
all that embrace the violence we hate
all that who learn without names a-mentioned
all there is to do is to wait

all that we seek can be gotten
all that i want i forget
all that is envious dies rotten
all undone are deeds to regret

all that i am it aint nuthin
all that i dont be shit
all that i wait for is an end to the suffering
all i want is an end to it


(i think i will stop now)

"all I want, is an end to it"......
I find it profound and thorough to an extent
I hope it will find some
to their betterment
seeing that ALL things have their placement
Do you live in a Basement?
Have the walls tumbled down?
Has your legs forgotten how to feel now?
How will your heart beat, if you found the true end?
Only YOU can stop the suffer'n
Experience, trials, tribulations and a little salvation
can lead Us All to view everyday as a scent of Heaven
Oh, that's something to believe in
Loss of count, the many times "I've died!!", only to be revived
After everytime, I be damned, there is some clarification
'cause after the third, (and knowing I'm not a cat and I've passed nine) I figure there's some reason beyond my understanding, That I.................
Come Back
With clearer eyes
Stronger beats of Heart and
Breathing a Bigger Smile
As I exhale........

As I exhale
wondering
will I make bail
expediently
as claustrophobia sets into the cell
some hail the king of random things
revelling in accusation for smell
this jail can bring a fandom ring
gangsta sap crap rap sting
wankers napping beside drawered Gideon
as our world moves closer to oblivion

Falling ever closer to oblivion
This city is, but gritty as it is,
I would bleed to see it free.
See, living on this planet
I have managed to gather
What sanity can be obtained
Given the gamut
Of this game.
Its plain and simple
And more then a
Little coincidental,
That a man with a stencil
Hasnt need of a pencil
To render credentials.
Its just a rental, man
This body, and mind
That lies inside it,
Yet oddly I am finding
Scores Of cats that
Try To fight it
And I know Im kind of high but
Cant you see the misery
That we feeding into it?

that we
feeding
into it

a mere list
a kiss
a bit
of oats
and wheat
for starving
souls
refusing
to eat

the walk
with the dogs
and dance with
the cats

but still
we
feed
and seed
forever in the spring

Forever in the spring
Where life is re-born
Like new-born lambs
And babies smiling in prams
Easter bonnets adorned
With chicks & pretty flowers
Winter's passing not mourned
As we enjoy the prolonged daylight hours

as we enjoy the prolonged daylight hours
we have more time to build fortress towers
build them high and build them strong
soon a foe will come along

keep your guard and do not sleep
we now have eyes that won't weep
i’ve shed all the tears i had to give
they ran trough fingers made like a sieve

They ran through fingers made like a sieve
and shriveled in the sand as if they had lived.
Candidly bandaged in fancy attire,
I scooped up my dreams to find a new buyer.

And lo! in the distance What did I find?
a beaten old beggar, ragged and blind
A dagger, I thrust them on into his person
In trust to live free from the curse of the burden.

In trust to live free from the curse of the burden,
I asked the good Lord, of this you are certain?
Her reply to me, was much less than clear,
she asked of me those whom I held most dear.

I thought and I struggled to find an answer.
I sidestepped and squirmed and became a dancer.
She danced with me through the long, restless night,
by dawn I was complacent and saw the light.

By dawn I was complacent and saw the light,
the rebel in me was unable to fight.
I cried and wailed with pain so heavy and deep,
I bargained with the devil my soul to keep.

She rejected my pleas as if unfounded,
in the heavens above my heart was grounded.
I wanted so much to be young and to flee,
instead I knelt down on my old, aching knee.

Instead I knelt down on my old, aching knee,
I asked of the Lord to have mercy on me.
The folly of youth is now hard to discern,
to relive these years wiser is what I yearn.

My pleas went unanswered my cries were not heard,
to ask and get a second chance is absurd.
Let me use time wisely from now until then,
perhaps I’ll have fewer regrets in the end.

For you cannot blame yourself for betrayals by a friend
To be naive & trusting isn't inherently such a bad thing
Only when people use it against you unhappiness it will bring
But those who lie & cheat will eventually come unstuck
Because you should treat others as you wish to be treated
Not think you can get away with 'anything' as you'll run out of luck

(do) not think you can get away with 'anything',
as you'll run out of luck
and this, too, will build character,
like the scratches on my truck.
Those who seek, selfishly,
to gain and to use
will find themselves, by karma,
a victim of self-abuse.

"Castles made of sand
soon melt into the sea"
A house with a bad foundation
will sink eventually.
Uneven floors, and all,
the house is pretty ,as a whole.
Diamonds, before they shine,
are ugly lumps of coal.

ugly lumps of coal
symbols of all they hold
from diamonds where
their beauty will unfold
to holding lots of energy
when heated in the cold
to buttons on snow men
tradition from days of old...

tradition of days old
are simply gonna get rolled
and everything will be whiped out
for the sake of tossing clout

i have survived the bullshit i have survived the price of life
without a dime to buy the strife
i see eye to eye and dont fear the knife
i have faith in knowing what its about

i pick my chords and take my time
and take my licks and go rhyme
feeling no hate dont make it sublime
a day lost but yet felt within

i welcome justice when its there to be seen
but i have no faith and dont know where youve been
there is no one to beat down, no one to demean
may i go numb as my heart turns to tin

now lets see this post dissappear like the last set did just did. censureship is happening right here and right now. ive been getting erased. good luck to you.

may i go numb as my heart turns to tin
stuffed with straw and lion again
a man must do what a man must do
to win
thick or thin
the blood lines depend on clean water
clean air
fair sharing of responsibility
then a cleché bends out thought
old hippies get bought
caught with no pants in the sun
the burning has begun

the burning has begun
discrimination
a curse set from birth
with a pre-loaded gun
strong ammunition
breaking the line
of communication
no opening vision
no unification
no compassion
just hate with passion
such a profusion
of harmful illusion
some turn to using
from the abusing
some end up dying
with so many lying
forgetting the golden rule
found in nearly every school
from east to west
catholic to buddhist
our key to feel real happiness
filling that place of emptiness
the golden rule to do unto others
by treating us all with respectfulness
will grow the tree of human kindness

the tree of human kindness
it's shadow spans the centuries
history records it's finest
deeds of compassion blindness

still...we eat of that fruit
and we reach tall to the skies
hope lives in our hearts
if not in our eyes

If not in our eyes
And if taken by surprise
By the cloak & disguise
For as we could all surmise
Being honest can lead to demise
In your self-esteem - be wise
In how you claim your prize
