    I can see your sounds
    Smell your thoughts
    Feel your words
    On my skin

    other animals don’t do that...

    200 overdeveloped brains
    battle for the best view
    aboard a screaming bird

    because we are better
    than the many blessed
    beasts of burden

    but have we boors
    the same heart
    as bovids?

    loneliness will kill

    so i must miss you
    in small doses

    and kiss you goodbye,
    sweet hostess

    many times, each time
    i start to feel the loss

    and build a resistance
    to lonelier thoughts...

    the antibodies
    to fight off your body

    they have not formed,
    and i feel so shapeless

    please, hold me together

    Tell me what it is
    Every day you fuss and fizzle out
    And I doubt
    When you say
    It’s ok

    You say that it’s not
    It’s not what you want
    What you need
    What you think I believe
    But it’s not

    Tell me what to say
    Every time you walk away
    I give up
    It’s never enough

    You say that it’s not
    It’s not what you need
    What you want
    And you bleed and you taunt
    And I’m not

    Tell me what to do
    Every time I think it’s through
    You show up
    But then you blow up

    Tell me what’s the matter, man
    Every day you seem to change
    Tell me what you want
    I can’t stand when I give what you need
    And you say that it’s not

    You say that it’s not
    What you need, what you want
    You say that it’s not
    It’s never enough
    When you laugh and you taunt

    Tell me what I’ve done
    Every time you have to run
    Sometimes you don’t show
    I can’t lie, you cant hide
    That it’s dying inside
    And you, you say that’s it not

    You say that it’s not
    What you want, what you need
    You say that it’s me
    And it’s never the same
    What you blame for the change

    Looked for your face
    In the crowd tonight
    Even though I knew
    You weren’t there

    If You’ve Never

    If you’ve never cast a stone
    Then you cast first
    We are lonely at our worst
    And the worst is here

    And if you’ve not removed the log
    Then see it your way
    We move blindly toward our God
    When we choose fear

    But have no fear
    I am here
    Open up your tired ears
    Use your eyes and you will see
    You are free

    If you’ve never lost it all
    Then give it up slowly
    We are lowly in the grave
    And cannot save it there

    And in your absence we shall revel
    And drink it away
    Raise your glass then with the devil
    He’s everywhere

    But you don’t care
    And I don’t care
    The devil is you and me, beware
    Use your will and you will see
    The best and worst humanity

    If you’ve never felt alone
    Then you’ve not lived
    Give your all and face the stones
    It only hurts a moment

    And if you’ve never felt at home
    Well, I’m lost here too
    You can join me at the bar
    We’ll have a drink or two

    We’ll have a drink or two
    So have a drink or two

    But love abides in me
    And love abides in you, too
    And I have a light
    And you are a light

    Fussing & Fighting

    We’re always fussing and fighting
    We’re always kicking and screaming, my lady
    That must be why they call you baby

    We’re always running from something
    We’re always standing in place right here
    We can’t escape our fears

    But I want you to just be true
    And I want you to just be you
    But why can’t I?

    I’m always picking up pieces
    I’m always keeping the peace for my friends
    Don’t ask me when it’s gonna end

    They’re always calling us trouble
    They’re always bursting our bubble
    It blows, I’m tired of everyone who knows

    But I want you to just be true
    And I want you to just be you
    But why can’t I?

    Why can’t we set ourselves free
    Of all the tags and the hide and seek?
    Why can’t we just let it be
    The realest you and the realest me?

    I’m always workin’ for nothin’
    And always nothin’ is workin’, it seems
    I never sleep and I don’t dream

    It’s always somethin’, it’s always somethin’
    I swear it’s nothin’, I’m tired of complaining
    I felt my energy draining

    And I want you to just be true
    And I want you to just be you
    And I want you to just be true
    And I want you to just be you
    But why can’t I?

    Haunted

    When things have sped up
    Just keep your head up
    And don’t get so fed up
    It all gets better

    And if you miss her
    Well, don’t dismiss her
    You cannot resist her
    She’s something else, mister

    You couldn’t leave it alone
    If you wanted
    And you couldn’t leave her alone
    If you you tried
    You couldn’t leave for another
    You’re haunted
    You tell me any different it’s a lie

    But then things slow down
    And you feel so down
    Well, don’t you go now
    Receive this lowdown

    And if you chase her
    Well, don’t disgrace her
    You couldn’t replace her
    You’ll just have to face it

    You couldn’t leave it alone
    If you wanted
    And you couldn’t leave her alone
    If you tried
    You couldn’t leave for another
    You’re haunted
    You tell me any different it’s a lie

    You tell me any different it’s a lie, oh

    The sun has come up
    And we are done, love
    I am not the one, love
    So go on and run

    ‘Cause things will speed up
    And then they will slow down
    And I will still miss her
    It’s not getting better!

    You couldn’t leave it alone
    If you wanted
    And you couldn’t leave her alone
    If you tried
    You couldn’t leave for another
    You’re haunted
    You tell me any different it’s a lie

    You tell me any different it’s a lie, oh

    You used to say let’s get away
    And find some other way to live
    Used to say let’s get away
    I’ve got so much more love to give
    Used to say let’s get away
    And find some other way to live
    Used to say let’s get away
    Well, carpe diem, seize the day

    I Will Be

    We all got someone we wanna run away from
    We all want another one to hold our hand
    If you got no one then stand up on your own
    And see more clearly that I am just a man

    But I could be your man
    And you say no, no, no
    You’re just a friend
    And you say slow down
    Here we go again

    We all want somethin’ for nothin’, it’s simple
    Some got problems and mouths to feed
    If you got nothin’ then pull up on your bootstraps
    Kiss the ground your boot soles meet

    And I will be your friend
    But then you speed up and
    Knock me off my feet again
    And free love is never all that free

    This game you been spittin’, no one is a winner
    There is no you in us, no I in team
    If you’re feelin’ lucky then go on shoot your shot
    But when you rebound tell me what it means

    And I will be around until he shows up
    And now it’s going down
    Why don’t you grow up
    And I will be around

    You know I’m your:
    Your man, your dog
    Your clown, your friend
    And you know it’s never ever gonna end

    But I don’t need no friend like you no more
    And I don’t need no lover anyhow
    And I don’t need no friends like that, no way

    Kinda wish that you would go away
    Really wish that you would go away
    Baby, baby, please just go away

    L-O-V-E

    L-O-V-E
    What’s that even mean to you and me?
    I once had love, I had it twice
    That feeling’s over in a night
    We keep our hearts in chains so tight
    It hurts to free it

    But remember, pretender
    That you are not the only member
    Of the human race disgraced

    L-O-V-E
    Quite the spell
    It can be heaven here on Earth
    Or it can be Hell
    And I can’t tell if I am yours
    You know I fell

    But remember, pretender
    That I am not the only member
    Of the human race disgraced

    If you love me, go on and free me
    If I ever return then you will know it’s true
    But I can’t keep going on loving you that way
    No I can’t keep going on hating you like that

    Hello to you and me
    I don’t know why I keep on goin’ this way
    I live alone in a little box, it seems
    And I work all day
    The things we say, the price we pay
    It hurts to free it

    But remember, pretender
    That you are not the only member
    Of the human race disgraced

    And befriend her, befriend her
    But I am just another member
    With a human snake

    Nothing Special

    You may say you’re nothing special
    But I will tell ya, you are not the same
    You’ve laid claim to my emotion
    Drank a potion and I will go insane

    If I say nothing, lose my voice
    I have no choice but carry on in vain
    You’ve explained but things are weird

    And we can play this game
    But I will not refrain from carrying away
    And you can play this game
    But you should not refrain
    From carrying away

    Let’s get coffee, I got sloppy
    Took the wrong way and wound up at a show
    Drank a beer and faced my fears
    And you’re still here
    Well, what do you know

    If I tried something and lose my good sense
    I smell incense, carry on in vain
    You’ve explained enough, I’m weird
    I hear the sound of carrying away

    And we can burn this flame
    But I will not refrain from carrying away
    And we can burn this flame
    But you should not refrain from carrying away

    You could pierce my stoney heart
    And that’s a start, but everything’s a game
    I set flame to my decisions
    Life’s a prison and we all go insane

    If we do nothing and lose our choice
    Then hear my voice, let’s carry on in vain
    You’ve explained enough, I’m weird
    I hear the sound

    And you can play this game
    But I will not refrain from carrying away
    And you can burn this flame
    But I will not refrain from carrying away

    And I can play this game
    But you should not refrain from carrying away
    And I can burn this flame
    But you should not refrain from carrying away

    Elephant & Flowers

    Elephant & flowers
    Arm myself with a half dozen hours
    Just to see what you hide
    Hidden at your side

    Nothing hurts like naked pride
    Stabbing at your untied ribs
    The biggest lies are the little fibs
    We told as kids

    You did what you had to
    You are what you are
    So who’s to blame
    When all things fall apart?

    Tell me then what you think
    I would drink the blackest ink
    Just to spit some words that last
    Your smile brings up the beautiful past

    Nothing feels like falling fast
    So place your chest inside a cast
    And double cross your little heart

    I did what I had to
    I am what I am
    Not your man
    Oh, man

    I wish that I’d grow up at last
    But that is rude to my best years
    My childhood fears and childish dreams
    Now I sit in bed and I scream...

    A dozen more hours
    And think up some fancy words
    On your flowers and elephant because
    In the flesh I can be such a little coward

    Nothing fails like giving up
    So pour your heart into a cup
    And raise your spirit, it’s enough
    I know it’s tough

    But we did what we had to
    It is what it is
    So give me one last kiss

    Shitty Luck (not performed)

    Maybe shitty luck this week
    Is a blessing disguise
    But it it ain’t then I’ll be damned
    A fool is never cool

    I’ve tried my hardest to grin and bear it
    But I can’t turn around
    It’s been a shitty week since this shitty week went down

    Maybe I’m to blame for this
    But I can’t be sure
    I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for her
    And she left me in a blur

    But I’ve tried my hardest to wish her well
    Well, only time will tell
    Animosity makes your life hell

    And I know I’m to blame
    But it just hasn’t been the same
    Without her screaming my name

    But I think it’s still her fault
    Well, now she’s gone
    I just don’t know if I care or not

    You ask me how I’m doing this week
    To which I’m replying:
    I couldn’t be any worse off, my dear
    Unless I was dying

    But I’ve tried my hardest to grin and bear it
    That’s all that you can do
    Give your sorrow up
    And then it’s through

    Action Potential

    Nerves overcame
    A spark that was issued
    I kissed you

    Dark and stormy
    Chemical catastrophe
    You showed no apathy

    You bowled me over
    And we rolled over
    Behold, it was over

    And the lights went out
    And the certain doubt
    Escaped the clout

    Of all the flashy poetry
    And now you are free
    And I am just me

    And I am a memory
    And you are a network
    Of tangled pathways

    None of which
    Return to us
    It’s a bust

    Except for the very last one I posted above, that flurry of posts was song lyrics. I’m getting paid for my shows now. Also explains the reliance on rhymes.

    Feeling rough?

    Sweet one
    Do not smoulder
    That is not a spark

    The friction
    You contemplate
    Will wear on the heart

    Hold me for the night
    I will not rub you
    The wrong way

    Be cool
    Be cooler, babe
    Don’t be cold

    A storm in a teacup
    We cannot hold, lightning
    I could hardly emulate

    If you self immolate
    Let go of what burns
    Put your foot down
