I fear our future closing near
is there still time to drink that beer
before our fate becomes clear
Let me have your ear

Ill tell you the secrets that I know
before the whole world blows
and we all have to go
to a place we do not know

Learnin lessons add up 1 dream at a time
still haven't found the one to shine
Still looking up and down
no where to be found
not a sound
quit all around
same as it always is
same as it always is
same as it always is

Watch it fall where it may, then put it back again
some call it love some call sin
some say its doing the same thing all over again
not ever knowing where you have been
going over the same ol trail
realizing you've done the same ol fail
not knowing what to do next
thinking everything you touch becomes hexed
running wild to get your fill
only to find your self standing still.

Open, Flotar lashes of a butterfly
and the whole world is one big sigh
as everyone looks to the sky
hoping it is not all a lie
After all, they all gave it that collage try
No one ever came back after they die
Nobody ever asked why?
The newer people learning how to cry

Nietzsche or Douglas it's what Fred said
But I herd it was really Ted that said
What Fred and Ned
Did in Bed
Perhaps Fred
can shed
a little more light on what was said

Ya know , ya just can't know never
Unless your a wee bit clever
I once found my self dreaming
That I knew everything
for a second I knew all things
There were no strings
And like in a sad sad song
In a New York second it was all gone

Part of an ultimate plan facts
I heard it was written somewhere in the book of Acts
But to be fare
Im not sure nor do I care
Things seem a little wrong these days
Changing our life changing our ways
No one wants to listen
under the hot suns glisten
The snow was weak
even at its peak
just alot of rain and mud
pretty sure Morel season gonna be a dud
All the ash trees are dead
its gonna get worse that's what I read

Do remember and tell us what was said
Not really sure it was something about lead
and how his neighbors cows seem under fed
If you ask me its all in his head
It keeps him up at night full of dread
another thing he never goes to bed
He's afraid he'll wake up dead
but I tell him "that's impossible"

I need you every nite
or I might not see the morning light
Long ago I gave up the fight
because there was no end in sight.
with that being said
I have to go to bed
so I can rest whats inside my head
so I can wake up, to earn my bread

Really depends on what type of boats
and how you ware your coata
and where you want to stand
when the world decided to land
and who you want to be
and what you think is free
and if you have any thing to say

A Silence always noticed
cause no one ever showed us
and we live in a world always going round
covering the same ol ground
Never going no where
as all the people stare
Never doing nothing
maybe in the spring

Through an ancient arch we the people pour
coming out of hidden holes to settle the score
Like long lost moles asking for more
so when they come you have to show them the door
Make the correction
without any desecration
and send them ancient people in the right direction
They don't need any protection

To find the balance in yout life
you must first pull out that imaginary dull knife
The one lodged in your back
That makes you lack
any self esteem
or a way to dream
Of a better way
to spend your day

Can we grow together if we cannot speak
even if its eternity or just for a week
Communication they say is the key
If you truly want to be a you and me
Silence can be golden too
here with or with out you
even in a place of endless days
most are alone in their silent ways

Betting the good while rolling the dice
when i win it is so nice
Life is all but a game
to get ahead is the aim
so we solder onward
with hope of going forward
we struggle and struggle every day
only to be left with nothing to say

This is an old poem from back in the day
it is what it is

I am shattered glass
cutting all who touch me
it is what is
that's what you say
This morning when we took our walk
I held my stick and pic ax in one hand
The beaver tail cactus, the thorns
they look soft, you said
You reached out to touch it
I took your hand, pulled it away
You'll get hurt I said
We kissed instead
You call it magic
these things you are afraid
to call you own
It is what is
That's what you say

Money doesn't matter when you're dead
unless you give it to a noble cause instead
then you're money might be all right
If its helping someone find the light
but if you think about it money isn't real
just colored paper to give one a thrill
Unfortunately money IS what makes the world go round
In my travels this is what I have found
The only time it don't really matter
Is when your alone like a mad hatter
and your sittin in the zone
with everything you own
but for now back to reality
and the finality
I spend a lot of time faking it
so I can keep on making it

Drive around
where nothing's found
Where there is no sound
in an empty town
only thing walking is a creepy clown
there'a nothing around
nothing on the ground
silence is the sound
this place we are bound
but in the distance I hear a hound
it is the only sound
except for the wind

Way back before deadlove gotta have it
Before it all goes to shit
Looking in all the wrong places
smiling at all the wrong faces
where do you go from here
when no place is near
Its all about where and what you want to be
but most are blind even though they can see

Wingless we fly,supersonic fast
we all are all actors just part of the cast
The world is a stage its one big show
getting ahead is about who you know
Those black sheep people
are not allowed under the steeple
Go away with you all
Only certain ones can take the call

Nothing has changed but everything
Change is the only constant spring after spring
Its how we handle change determines what it will bring
It might make you cry it might make you sing
It might make you die and lose all your bling
The only thing that don't change is change
cause living life is everything

as waves go crashing with a phosphorescence glow
it is the end of the world where I sit
as the full moon shines its light on it
The eternity of the ocean shines

playing games we discover more
even when some games will make you poor
but you still end up learning more than before
before someone shows you the door
an you have to wonder what is it all for
when things rock you to the core
and what else is in store
You have to love life no less no more

( wow this is a dark place these days)

Well hey I m back for a bit
fall is gone winter is it
trapped inside doing the winter hide
thought i'd do a little verse and rhyme
while a await a better time
while I await, it to start all over again
Nothing changes its always been

here" s something about the cyber world

We search for the illusion putting love in a box
It is the illusion that keeps us going
It is the illusion that we search for
the Illusion of love
We search the Illusions in hopes
that it may turn into reality
Reality what is it?
You can touch it
you can see it
you can smell it
you can hear it
you can feel it
you can be apart of it
yet the illusion takes over
we are all ghost in this place
Reality is something we dream of
yet we seek the illusion
of love
we are in the place of smoke an mirrors
we are ghost
We are ghost looking for love
placing love in a neat little box
I want this and I want that
and you have to be like this
you can't be like that
you have to have your teeth
you have to be attractive
you have to be tall dark and handsome
you have have a lot of money
you have to be beautiful
you can't be this way
but you have to be that way
take me to Paris
take me to London
take me to Fiji
you have to have it all
or you wont fit in the box
cause there is no drama in life
No life no drama no drama no life
If you fallow my rules then
I will love you
Its to large
Its to mysterious
It is unexpected
It will sneak up on you
Love is eternal
the greatest is love

And there you have it cyber-world love

Packing up goodness headed back home
getting out the knowledge few people have never known
Like I was shown
from plants grown
making it perfect for you and your friends
all is hoping for winters end
then it starts all over again
same ol spot you have always been
Nothing changes year after year
Here's to you I raise my beer.

listening to magical feelings, a tearful song
after winning this crazy game of ping pong
It lasted all day it was way to long
Not that im saying anything is wrong

But when I heard the gong
and heard the song
I knew it took to long
done with playing this here game , ping pong

to keep alive this real human disguise
Is the only way to live life wise
When the rest of the world takes you down to size
always searching for the right prize
It don't matter cause the world's full of lies
full of disgust and full of flies
Losing connections, losing my ties
Ill keep alive this real human disguise
