Fortnight Foresight

LYRICS
Sometimes the road less traveled
Finds one less embattled
Sometimes the long way home
Leaves you home alone

Foresight for a fortnight
Guides you to alright / all right!

Sometimes taking the high road
Creates a burdensome load
Sometimes marching to a different beat / beet
Relieves you of your feet / feat

Sometimes taking the beaten path
Steals your last laugh
Sometimes blinded by your own wrath
Leads you to your death

Foresight into insight
Brings light into sight

Knowing Nothing

LYRICS
What are we lacking
Food, shelter, clothing?
Knowing nothing
Knowing nothing at all
Still we ball
Boo hoo hoo… do you ball, too?
Knowing nothing
Knowing nothing at all
Still I cry… why?

What are we missing
Loving, hugging and kissing
Giving something?
Hugging and kissing
Giving your all
Heed the call (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Giving your all
I will try (Hi, hi, hi)

Seen In A Scene

LYRICS
The way things are going
We all should be rowing
But the problem with our riddle…
We haven’t got a paddle

Seen in a scene
Life is but a dream?

I saw all these people
In shades of purple
And, you were there… and, you were there
People in purple praying for resurrection
And, you were there… and, you were there
People in purple and upon reflection
Are you aware… you were there?
Purple people eaters… beaters of perfection
I swear
I wish I wasn’t there

Seen in a scene
Life is but a dream?

[row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream]

ABOUT THE SONG

Mark 15: The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(16) The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. (17) They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. (18) And they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” (19) Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. (20) And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

Makeshift Wings

LYRICS
Makeshift wings from my eyes
What a surprise
It flies

Body and mind
Get together and find
All physical and meta-physics
Combine fine in music

Drift on gravity’s draft
Riff away fretless on a fret

Catch my drift and get a lift
Once you fly you’ll learn to sigh
Ahhhh…

In music… in music

Soaring above any pain that’ll drive you insane
The angels’ refrain:
Soaring love of reign
Soaring love of rain
May it pour some more

The Illustrious Us

LYRICS
I must concede
When I was young
Mama told me
Don’t always believe what you read
As I grew up, it was easy to see
Obviously
Truth in here wisdom… clearly

Over the top ridiculous
I’m talking over-the-top
Say, “Way, way, way”
Over-the-top ridiculous
The illustrious us

Believe it or not there’s a social rot
A conspiracy to create conspiracy theory
Clearly, due to the lack of transparency
As I grew up, it was easy to see
Truth in the wisdom my Mama taught me

Eyeball deep in bull$hit
Throwing a tizzy fit
There ain’t no doubt about it
Probably time we own it

Under the bus
Illustrious us
Ill-us-trio-us

Seize The Opportunity

LYRICS
The last time opportunity
Had the courtesy of calling on me
Seized the opportunity
And wrestled with the devil to regain my destiny

The last time opportunity
Had the courtesy of calling on me
Seized the opportunity
Tempted to put the devil out of misery

Like a bull in a china shop
Got the devil by the horns
On top of the world… tippy-top
At the pearly gates an angel adorns

Cross the river? Depends which one She (Lady Luck) picks
Not up $hit crick or the river Styx
In this match, must claim victory
Wrestled with the devil a regained my destiny

Everybody’s Home

LYRICS
Dag-nab-it! They’re at it, again
Engaged in rage knowing — no-win
They’re at it, again
Knowin’ no-win
Dag-nab-it! They’re at it, again
Engaged in rage knowing — no-win
Fight to the end
In a no-win win
Victory in history
The war that can’t be one
War can not be won

Engaged, enraged and knowing
Knowin’ no-win

All across America where ever you may roam
Please remember we call it everybody’s home
So be it land of be it foam
We are never all alone
We’re never alone
Everybody’s home
Everybody is home

Transmission Mission

LYRICS
I’m getting interference
In the transmission
Are you getting inner fear
In this “Man’s Mission”?

I’m getting interference
In the passage of the message
Final elimination
Is this “Man’s Mission”?

Damnation nation
The Passage Age

I’m getting interference
In the signal to the “All”
Is “The Fall” the inner fear
Transmission of “Man’s Mission”?

Have you heard the dirt
On the men of the Earth/earth
Earthlings
Birthlings in pain
Insane?
I fear there’s no ear in EARth
Can’t seem to hear here
Falling on a deaf ear
We’re breaking up
Breaking up

Sun Screen

LYRICS
Too much screen between the scene
Blocking the sun out
Casting a sheen on the serene
Fog it up with doubt

Amaze at the ways we fill our days
Blocking the sun out
When will we begin to let the sun in
Lettin’ the shinnin’ sunshine shine in

I see too much debris in the air
I swear
Sense the fear of the smear
In the atmosphere
Stand clear

Too much mean between the dream
Blocking the love out
Time to shine our glean with the scene
Faith in no doubt
(Our faith in no doubt)

Fogged up
Fogged it up

ABOUT THE SONG
Humans have demanded and created the situation where children have to wear sunscreen to protect themselves from the environment — blocking the sun out. Perhaps the situation is just a microcosm of the larger problem? Adults have clouded the atmosphere with hate — blocking the light out.

Crack Open

LYRICS
What the hell
Crack open your shell
And try to fly

It’s just as well
Or how ya gonna tell
Unless you try

Experience your essence
In the presence of the present
’cause it will be gone before too long

For Joy

LYRICS
The temperature dropped about 20 degrees
Won’t be long before a freeze

The children jump for joy
Every last girl and boy
The children jump for joy
… for joy!

There’s a chill I’ve come to know
Right before it’s ready to snow

The scent of pine fills the air
Signaling the season is there

Holly and mistletoe
All the stocking hanging in a row

Mouth watering turkey
Mash potatoes and gravy!

Good tiding we send
Another year’s glorious end

This is the season
For another one to begin

Don’t Give Up (The Ship)

LYRICS
Though this might be one strange trip
Please don’t give up upon the ship
… don’t give up the ship
I mean… what the heck?
All hands on deck
All feet on the floor
It’s time to dance some more

Mind take flight
Gain insight
Hearts delight
King in sight

As you may go on your way
They say “don’t forget to play”
No matter how strange of a trip
Please don’t give up the ship

Mind take flight
Gain insight
Hearts delight
King in sight

Don’t Give Up The Ship.mp3

Want To Go?

LYRICS
Do you want to go (go, go, go)
Do you want to go to and fro
I don’t know
I heard said if we head ahead
I don’t know
Heard said so
If we head ahead… nothing to dread
I heard said
So, let’s go

I can understand if you want to go hand-in-hand
Or if you want a freehand
To freestyle for a while

Do you want to yes or to no?

Do you want to hide or to show?

Do you want to fade or to glow?

Will Be

LYRICS
Just like you told me
“What will be will be”

There is no doubt about
I finally found out
Out with song to move along
Let it be
Just like you told me

Can’t see any uncertainty
Logical in it’s entirety
Put to song we’ll move along
Let it be
Just like you told me

World without end, Amen
Love to do it again and again
One more song to move along
Let it be
Just like you told me

Will Be.mp3
