Thought this would be appropriate here
Octopuss Garden.....by the Beatles

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus' garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden with you.

Dante was or wasnt a demon to know all he shared
perhaps it was the hole in his pocket that charmed him
into playing that trick with fear
losing what you touch is reality
on at least one end

knowing the names of all we struggle against
may turn them into allies
unless you choose to fight another war
im not an ignorant nomad , chasing sheep
don't try to sell me that story

I realize that untangling the threads
cutting them one by one
weakens the rope , removes the noose
but why hang around for all that
it doesnt have to be your game

looking inside can offer every view
do i have to see the black and white of ignorance
the greys of acquiescence, Inquisition invitations
daring a demon to appear somewhere
when you can't even find yourself

eyes you alive buddy? :O heh after getting my ass whipped by ash I wouldn't admit being alive either :P

Booya the cats outta the bag
I'm a bitter old viper summoned by a hag
Crystal clear is my plan for a strike
Come on take a dose of antidote ain't gonna stop my sting for a dyke
I don't know what the hell the last line was about but hey it's sall good in the hood
Drink down another 40 if you know what's good for ya... got it? good!

Not Cool
there isnt an argument that opens the door wide enough for me to say
" wow, can i have a piece of this dispute?"
after all one more ignorant butthead
can't help but make everything look even better
all it takes is a can of paint and a plastic bag of Ditzler soaked paper towel
to enjoy as fine a choice as presented by refereeing a bout in the dark

I have watched friends drool out stories about Nam, and then huff and make me cry
inside.. being cool means letting friends fukk up and staying quiet

and what makes more sense than being cool?

whatever sh1t we share has to be honest or else we know ourselves
just how fukked up we are

I hope the healing can begin before the funeral..
that way i can enjoy the food and drink
otherwise ,why go at all?

I am not sure I have ever been complimented for letting my
sarcastic butthead alter ego have a chance to speak
he thanks you and does a little happy dance

I will say this..I have never enjoyed a post funeral meal
sadness makes the worst condiment
or maybe the memory of the embalming fluid smell
mixing with the perfume and grief
ruins the flavor

One of the funniest sights to me
is watching someone step in shit
then getting their ego tested
do i clean it off and move on
or suddenly decide shit is wonderful
since now i have some

variations of this episode abound
don't believe me?
take a second look
at your own shoes

reading that over Churchill's grave
might spin the boy right up and out
wouldn't that be a sight
decomposing with a fresh cigar
bulldog face
massive heart

FDR says nothing to fear but fear itself
becoming president from a wheel chair
before he could get a power scooter
or a polio vaccine

Julius cries Et tu Brute , if history isnt lying
a last comment on the treachery of a friend
not the usual goodbye
or hello to what comes next


you have to grasp this simple fact
fear is selfish to the detriment of self
is that really your best?

I was afraid of that

Once upon a dream I saw a rainbow leading to the golden shore.
Attempting to capture the beauty that filled me to greater depths.
A palette of colors reflecting the wishes of a lifetime.
Many times have I stood one foot ashore, one foot submerged in the waters.
Testing my faith. Testing my strength.
Yearning to know that life would be fairer.
Hoping that love would be kinder.

Standing in the cool breeze. Taking me to a place of serenity.
Gently closing my eyes. Breathing salt of the earth a little deeper.
It is only when I submerge. Deep into crystal waters. Cleansing me
of all life's mystery. Enveloping me in memories of past.
Guiding me to a purer heart. Submerging in the waves of love.
That I am prepared to move forward.

On the shores I can occasionally hear the waves of ghostly past and words
beckoning from a far away land. Today, as I sit watching the cool air brush
against the leaves of fall I am comforted by wisdom. Knowing that life
is measured by the footsteps that I take. Knowing that my heart is measured
by the hands that I hold. Yet, I still want to play in the hot sand, feed the hungry seagulls,
and build a beautiful sand castle. May I find those treasures and hold
them a little longer.
Someday.

It's quiet cause VisualDistortion isn't here to raise hell for ya :P

Anyway knew you when I was lberserkerl, Eyes

Woke up the other day
And I can't express the way I feel
So I decided to post this to let you know I feel
If love can't take us up and show us everything
Then let me know if you feel the same
...Every once in awhile I think of your smiling face
My heart's over-run with emotions I just can't face
So if you can't show me just what it is to live
I'll give you my heart my soul and anything mine is yours to give
So if priceless antiques or gold from afar won't win your heart
I give you these words and hope it's a start
Of things to come and things that'll be
Maybe then you'll know why I do things the way I do for me
If love has wings I hope you fly above the stars
I only know I can't give you things that come to pass by far
But if you can only know I'd give it all for you
Then baby you'd know I can't help the way I feel
Then you'll know my love is real
