the sharks can eat me just the same
without fear in the bitter end
just another dying animal
breeding, hoping and passing on
dreading and loving it all
many times over
dying and rising
rising and dying
over and over again
confronting contradiction
casting derision
on a line with a lure
invisible foe above the surface
fighting death to the bone
just another fish caught on good friday

just another fish
caught on Good Friday
should of made a wish
taken the highway
no point now
in getting irrate
suckered somehow
that irresistable bate
plenty of fish
til the draggers come by
enjoy your dish
soon its pie in the sky

Soon its pie in the sky
Discouraged & told not to try
To achieve our dreams - why?
For the limit of imagination is the sky
Others just love to be able to pry
Into our world - neat freak or pig sty?!
Separate human truth from the lie
Otherwise life will be passing you by
While you're contemplating if they'll deny
Trampling your dreams until you die
For other's happiness makes sour people sigh

for others happiness makes sour people sigh
until they see they too can try
until they let themselves just cry
and be held within our human compassion

then they'll feel their own hearts open
sharing the gift of loving emotion
that's free to be part of our humanity
like a wave upon our inifinite ocean

like a wave upon our inifinite ocean
is you're heart wide open
to perceive other's emotions
when they are in great need
of a shoulder to cry on

a shoulder to cry on
with waterproof pads
you can rely on
losing the mad
the bad and the worse
took you by surprise
it may feel like a curse
suck it up with a sigh

Suck it up with a sigh
No point in asking "why?"
You won't get an honest reply
For they wear false masks & lie
So then all you can do is try
To work t0wards & ultimately vie
Towards establishing what actually matters
And dismiss the sly pitter-patters
Of feet trampling all over your dreams
Never give them the satisfaction of hearing your screams
For there are nightmares & dreamscapes where nothing is as it seems

there are nightmares & dreamscapes where nothing is as it seems
then there's fight dares and knee scrapes and everything in between
fruitcake and handshakes and a giant laughing bear
and the petite street duffer selling her wares

and the desire to conspire to discover what makes sense
or just fragments of an egg that once sat on a fence
flashes in the synaptic pan or freaky premonition
homegrown paint strokes in your head or otherworldly transmission

homegrown paint strokes in your head
or otherworldly transmission
glorious colours of violet and red
open a spiritual incision
right into your soul and won't let go
awakening compassion
then down to your heart
the most sacred part
igniting your loving passion

{love it, we}

igniting your loving passion
like a match on a windy day
at first a spark and a flash of light
but then it all blows away

as cold as a rock beneath the north sea
as barren as a desert
my time misspent for oh so long
was never worth the effort

(but I'm NOT bitter)

was never worth the effort
was never worth the passion
was never worth selling out
it aint worth being in fashion

theres an old man with hands shaking
who just cant keep up his home
theres a chicken in the oven baking
as we grow old i wont leave you alone

dont be bitter and please dont die so
live large and dream greater things
i may play the guitar but i wont do a show
until i know who sings

until i know who sings
I will not sing along
Somewhere in that brain of mine
I know who sings this song!!

Some time, randomly, days from now...
It will hit me out of the blue.
The first thing I'll do is pick up the phone
and call to tell you who.

But, at this very moment
I might, as well, go ahead and sing with glee...
because the harder I try to think of it
the more the name eludes me.

the more the name eludes me
yet she exudes natural beauty
captured photographically
smiling genuinely
as a fire burns warmly
perhaps an ash might land on me
reminding me of her poetry

Reminding me of her poetry
which was always so wintery,

I could listen to her forever and a day
the way she allowed my mind to wonder astray

The snow felt almost real,
the touch of cold i could instantly feel,

The touch of cold I could instantly feel
There was no hidden warmth to conceal
Lips like snowflakes falling to the ground
Frosted carpet tread underfoot making sound
Lips that whisper promises untrue
Hoping to ensnare & enrapture you
But once the glaze melts you can see through
Clearer view - now you know what to do

Clearer view - now you know what to do
Nearer, too - so may I touch you
fearing not - I follow my whim
appearing hot - this can't be a sin

wearing nothing - but the smile on your face
huffing and puffing - my heart starts to race
feeling atingle - from head to toe
reeling we mingle - hearts all aglow

reeling we mingle - hearts all aglow
Our passion now heightened
our Juices now flow
two hearts in a tangle
two pulses on fire
our bodies now aching with burning desire

Now spent as we lay in a heap on the floor
you gather your clothes as i point to the door
I smile so smugly
your job you did well
you'll be back for me later
your under my spell

Your under my spell oh man in the night
I did hear your cries at my door step,
almost like a violin you tried to play me
but my heart would not listen to your tune,
go away and find another my soul in not here yet
it is still with another in a far away place,
where neither you nor I may visit
till our hour had come to pass,
Knock on the door of the silly young maiden
for she shall hear beautiful music,

yet you persist here at my window
with your poetry and songs melting the ice queen,
one rainy day I finally answered your call
to find you still waiting for loves first kiss,
but I did not let you inside and we walked instead
holding hands like school age children,
I did feel the spark of ignition in your eyes
and you managed to light a fire of interest,
one day at a time my sweetest lover I will try
to keep opening the door.

I will try to keep opening the door
though my heart says I can't take any more
of wishing for love from the heartless poor
when they turned away and called me a whore

now I know I've been here before
on the jagged edge of this stormy shore
when cruelty tried to break my core
yet I survived forevermore

and here my mind strangely hears
that song that helped me tame my fears
from a very unexpected source
the infamous, helen reddy, of course....

"I am woman, hear me roar
in numbers too big to ignore..."

"in numbers too big to ignore..."
I held you close when I learned how to
I kept your first walking shoe, I replaced
my life with your life..for awhile.
Hey my child you did understand?
Mother is a sequel to a beginning.

What I do not understand
is what I never understood
why is enough never enough?

why is enough never enough?
one more kick
one more punch
did you think you were tough?

Me-puppet
you-master
controlling my life
Well no more will you own me
i put down the knife.

I look at the mess of you
slumped in the chair
theres blood on my hands
but i no longer care

i blow you a kiss as i
walk out the door
Your life i have taken
i fear you no more.

i fear you no more
for i've grown from before
i have found my courage
to stop you knocking at my door
to stop the pictures in my head
of those feelings i was dead
and now i walk a path instead
that's grounded in my heart
surrounded by my art
treasuring the life I've led

Treasuring the life I've led
And the wonderful things said
In amongst the thorns & brambles
The 'shot in the dark' & the gambles
Lies a rose it's beauty unmarred
The outer petals only scarred
By the ravages of time & the harsh elements
But the centre remains untouched & never relents

while the left and the right cannot find recompense
to take a stand or chop off your hand
sing a solo or join in with the band
voice a demand or go back to the land
go with the flow or speak out and get banned
do your job dutiful or protest and get canned
I take offense, with no pretense when fed a bunch of nonsense

when fed a bunch of nonsense
dispite pretension's score
I'll take no offense
spin that six-pence on the floor
then wait to see
just what may be
some head or tails you roar

we laugh together
in you end though
the inuendo like a feather
floats on hot air above their heads
shooting quail in a barrel
will definately make them dead

such a cruel thought
entering from out of the blue
when non cents must be brought
will American dollars do
