Bite

I remember things
We weren’t in the plan
Long ago when I was a young man
Never tried to hide
Never really saw the
House that holds
The hawk’s head cold
Is mine yes
I drink myself into a drunken mess
Lose my luck, fail the test
There are the things I wanna say to you
There are things that I’d like to say to you

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

Take me out tonight
Where there’s music and there’s people
Who are young and alive

Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people and I
Want to see life

Driving in your car
Oh, please don’t drop me home
Because it’s not my home, it’s their home
And I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care

And in the darkened underpass
I thought “Oh God, my chance has come at last!”
But then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn’t ask

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care

Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one
Oh, I haven’t got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out

Apology In Advance

i apologize in advance,
for the jigsaws missing teeth,
for the animals in their holes,
at least.

there is argument in your eyes,
so i’m loosening all my ties,
the ones that you have come
to despise.

throw the heat off,
bite me when i eat off,
someone else’s plate.

it is now i should attempt,
perhaps to think and wait,
result to contemplate a fate.

that’s waited this long for me,
and the nights,
too bright,
to hide,
from sight,
so i better get things right.

i keep searching turning on equally frustrated,
hopelessness and sickness always kick you up a storm?
a disabled vet?
well i’m not there yet.

been around the block i even threw up one street over,
absorbed in the holding cell all blemishes exposed.
with the plastic hand,
of man i can.

stepping up i go limp at the sound of woman laughing,
leaving me to speculate the odds of one last chance.
to apologize in advance.

I apologize in advance.

Molly & Zack

8-4-10 time/constellations
In treading still the path
In moving back and from undulations
Yes, doing yet the math

Molly is still home when the day gets through
She says no messages, no progress
Zack and the anomalies
He gesticulates as biographer

Youmans bouncin’ off one per other like
Eated up Molly-cues

Molly becomes restless but still in saintly support
She claims new miracles are still happening
Zack-space reporter says he needs it
It’s what keeps relationships alive

Space stationships arrive
Through cataclysms still survive
With relationships alive

It’s Only Time

Why would I stop loving you a hundred years from now?
It’s only time.
It’s only time.

What could stop this beating heart once it’s made a vow?
It’s only time.
It’s only time.

If rain won’t change your mind, let it fall.
The rain won’t change my heart at all.

Lock this chain around my hand. Throw away the key.
It’s only time.
It’s only time.

Years falling like grains of sand mean nothing to me.
It’s only time.
It’s only time.

If snow won’t change your mind, let it fall.
The snow won’t change my heart, not at all.

(I’ll walk your lands)
I’ll walk your lands

(and swim your sea)
and swim your sea.

Marry me, marry me

(and in your hands)
and in your hands

(I will be free)
I will be free.

Marry me, marry me
