Rat Race Road Rage

LYRICS
Rat in a cage
Rat in a maze
Amazed?!?!
Rat race road rage
Press the lever
Get your fix
Best be clever
Or shocks n’ tricks
Caught up in the rat race
Gotta try n’ keep the pace
Gave up the human race
To a de-evolved place
Thought you thought outside the box…
Or are you bound… chains and locks?

In The Midst Of Mist

LYRICS
Cloud came down
To surround
All around
The cog didn’t recognize
The cog didn’t realize
Cog in a fog
In the mist-like dream
A pawn in the machine

See the light?
Have to fight
‘ta keep upright
I did not recognize
I did not realize
Surrounded by fog
In the mist-like dream
A pawn in the machine
Still the will — checkmate the King
Never too late to do something
Take responsibility for my being

I Have The Feeling

I Have That Feeling.mp3

LYRICS
Why do I have the feeling
That we’ve been here before
Wow! It’s so revealing
Seeing what we’ve in store
A sneaky suspicion
That I’ll come to adore
Love a premonition
Hope to have some more

When you were young you would play
You would play throughout the day
Yearning for earning the learning…
All the way

[Wait! Hang on a minute. Wait for me!]

Hone the intuition
For the miracle of vision
Listen to the gut
No if, and or but
Leaving from the station
Better get on-board
A progressive situation
Thank you! Thank you, oh Lord

ABOUT THE SONG
A song about the secret to the fountain of youth — youth. When you are young, you learn through playing. When you are young, you have amazing powers of intuition. Keep playing.

Flirting With Disaster

LYRICS
Flirting with disaster
Am I the slave
Am I the master
Recipe for atrocity
To superiority wave
Bye-bye
Suicide blue sky
Sung tongue of lizard, “blizzard!”
Snowflakes undertake
For all that’s at stake
Expandability of humanity
Density diversity
All the colors in the hue
Including me and you

Crazy Weather

LYRICS
This is no dream
Weather extreme
Not a matter of whether
This is extreme weather
What’s the message Mother Nature’s sending
Warning! Warning! Major storm pending
There’s a Nor’easter brewing
Climate change what are you doing?

Sunny, snowing, pouring
The old man is snoring
Finds Fake News alluring
Finds global warming boring
What’s the lesson Mother Nature’s teaching
Warning! Warning! Storm water’s breaching (surging)
Keep grasping for straws… keep reaching
No help crying, praying nor preaching

Sing, Earthling, Sing

Sing, Earthling, Sing.mp3

LYRICS
Don’t know if I’ve tried everything lucid
No, don’t know if I did
Super ego, ego and id
Living in their own world… splendid
Or, splendor… elevator to grandeur
Starts at the ground floor
That is for sure
Better save your soul
For your body will not endure
Talkin’bout life’s goal
Save my soul

Don’t know if life is but a dream
The surreal scene that I gleam
Too many sad folk or so it would seem
Are earthlings all on the same team?
Seems that the plant, elephant and ant
In harmony, they chant
So who’s to say we can’t
Earthlings sing… sing earthling!
Don’t know if life is but a dream
Drifting, drifting… floating upstream

Fibber

LYRICS
I won’t take any salary
Nor discriminate at all
Going to give birth to a wall
And, Mexico is going to pay the dowry
Look me right in the eye
Tell me that is no lie
Cross your heart… hope to die

I won’t tolerate bribery
(Unless it’s from the Russian mob)
If the Russians blackmail me
I’m just an arrogant snob
Look me right in the eye
Tell me that is no lie
Cross your heart… hope to die

Let me tell you, Mama
Obama bugged my tower
And, what was that? Humanana
Don’t believe in golden showers
Look me right in the eye
Tell me that is no lie
Cross your heart… hope to die

Scene From A Dream

Scene From A Dream.mp3

LYRICS
In a scene from The Dream
The path isn’t straight from A to “Be”
Got to observe to swerve for the curve
That they throw to me
Are you just going to stand there
And, let the world turn under your feet
As it passes are you aware
You can choose the road you’re on… and the drummer’s beat
While the world turns under your feet

With my head, think ahead
For there’s a pitfall for all
Don’t have to be paranoid
Just have to learn to avoid
[chorus]

With the mind’s eye of I
I anticipate our fate
I can bear to change the bearing
To my heart keep on listening

Humpty Dumpty’s Great Wall

LYRICS
Jack and Jill went up to The Hill
But, The Hill just wanted to kill, kill, kill
Peter, Peter the pumpkin grifter
Had 3 wives and couldn’t keep ‘er
Colored like a pumpkin shell
Going to damn us all to hell
From Humpty Dumpty’s great wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
The jack(a$$) fell down
And broke his crown
We all came tumbling after
(Does anybody remember laughter?)

Little Boy Blue go blow your horn
The U.S.A. is all the scorn
Our worldly welcome’s been out worn
They all wish we were never born
Before you say “can we adjourn?”
Mother Goose, will we ever learn?
From Humpty Dumpty’s great wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
The jack fell down
And broke his crown

The bridge to freedom is falling down
(My Fair Lady, the King is shady)
Ashes, ashes we all fall down
Take the low road… I’ll take the ridge
Has anyone seen the confounded bridge?
From Humpty Dumpty’s great wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
The jack fell down
And broke his crown
We all came tumbling after
[Laughter]

Out Of Space

Out Of Space Instrumental.mp3

LYRICS
My God, out there… there’s a lot of space
How do you keep any of it from going to waste
My God, how do you keep track
My God, step back!
When there is no trace
My God, we better make haste
How do you keep it in
So our space doesn’t become outer
I know I should “no” better
But I don’t know where to begin

I’m starting to doubt the existence of this “space”
I’ve asked the whole human race
And, no one can show me any of this space
It has no smell, touch nor taste
Yet we can’t let space go to waste?
Is that right? There’s none in sight
No sound is found
Just look around
Under what basis
Is this space “is”

At The Corner

LYRICS
The days are getting warmer
I’ll meet you at the corner
Bring your guitar
We’ll sing a bar
Of any ole blues you choose
When you’re done paying your dues
Any ole blues you choose

The days are getting longer
Meet me down at the corner
Come on, come
And bring your drum
Play any ole blues you choose
And, there’s really nothing to lose
Any ole blues you choose

Meet me up at the corner
Raising your voice

With any ole blues you choose
Singing any ole blues you choose

Sun Ray

LYRICS
Sun ray
Dance and play
Shine fine
Make my day
You know who
Playing peek-a-boo
From behind a cloud
Follow the leader
With my shadow
Tight rope teeter
Look out below!
Come out in the sun
Let’s have some fun
Step into the light
Feeling all right
Alright, bright
Light in sight

God’s Odds

LYRICS
The odds are 1:1
Coming undone
No need to flip a coin
Inevitable
The way things are goin’
Irrefutable future
No road to misery
For our destiny

The Gods are/our one to won
Come together
Under the sun
Forever
One believer
Got to move past
The fork in the path
Promised land at last
Within grasp

Get Together

Coversong originally made famous by the Youngbloods
Written by Chet Powers, also known as Dino Valenti
The song was originally recorded as “Let’s Get Together” by the Kingston Trio and released on June 1, 1964

A
Love is but the song we sing,
                      G
And fear's the way we die.
A
You can make the mountains ring,
                   G
Or make the angels cry.
A
Know the dove is on the wing,
                      G
And you need not know why.

D                 E
C'mon people now, smile on your brother,
     A                          D
everybody get together, try and love one
  E           A   G A
another right now.

Some will come and some will go..
And we shall surely pass.
When the one who left us here,
returns for us at last.
We are but a moments sunlight,
fading in the grass.

C'mon people now, smile on your brother,
everybody get together, try and love one
another right now.

If you hear the song I sing,
You must understand.
You hold the key to love and fear,
All in your trembling hand.
Just one key unlocks them both,
It's there at your command..

Features pictures from the Women’s March On Washington, Philadelphia and New York 2017.
