come to me

come to me in a dream deep in the night
come to me a ghost flickering by candlelight
come to me in any color you choose to be
just not that memory

come to me with your dark Appalachian eyes
come to me hiding behind a torn disguise
come to me with your painful honesty
just not that memory

(in perfume rain of louring mist
quiescent gray or slivers that pierce
the end of day, bleeding
upon the edge)

come to me the joy of a glorious death
come to me a word of truth in every breath
come to me on a cross to set the world free
just not that memory

I’m on the way out (song lyrics)

I’m on the way out
Of this world
I see it in my face
In my eyes
Tired of this disguise
Ain’t got time to know the love
Of my new girlfriend
The wind is calling my soul
Away from sin
Wish I could stay with you
Because you’re something new
But there is time on your side
And it’s making me blind
Time for me to go
Out of this world
There’s blood on my face
And I don’t like the taste
Of this world
Ain’t got time to know the love
Of my new girl friend
The wind is calling my soul
Away from sin
Wish you could come with me
To the other side
I’m scared of what I might see
Scared I might try to hide
On the other side
I’m on the way out
Of this world

like a mood (lyrics)

i wear you like a mood,

you smile for me

when twinkling eyes grow dark.

you are my tear

fallen, burning,

stinging the earth

pure as baby’s truth.

you are gone now

and our stormy bed remains –

your hair upon my pillow

left mingling with mine,

braided by our love,

as it was –

when we lay as one

held by the truth in love,

naked and wet

on flowers of fire,

burning our innocence

into the flesh we wear.

i wear you

like a mood.

another little man (lyrics)

not destined for
greatness here
no not destined for
greatness here
in your world
world of yours

just another little man
doing just another little job
exist day by day
well evolved above the slob

just enough sex
to call it love
just enough love
to call it life
it’s just life
don’t need no strife

no mojo device
it’s all in my head
silence is the stage
upon which i’m fed
yes i’m fed
so feed me now

nourish me
from above
nourish me
from above i pray
nourish me
i’m down on my knees
nourish me

i am (lyrics)

Where am i going?
Am i growing up, to you,
or just wild in the night?
Is my vision true,
to be with you, my love,
i’m running in the dark
will i hit the wall?

Where are you now,
and your higher power,
when flesh is weak,
yet so very strong?
Who will win the war,
this tug of war?
Your hand is strong –
it can pull me up,
but so hard to touch.

Did you send your love?
Did she fall from above?
Is she there, for me –
Are you in her eyes?
Can she save my soul,
before i let go,
of your hand
to drown, within myself?

Where are the angels?
Where is your burning bush?

I am that I am,
that’s what you said,
but who am i?

Stay with me.
All is dark

serenade me (lyrics)

to which the cold wind blows
through my open door
my love lies
trampled here
my love to give trampled here
upon this dirty floor

serenade me
upon the night’s cold dark sweat

her innocence came to me
white gown immortality
swollen red in her sea
of passion and youth
your love from another sea
a language of calligraphy
my mind you taught to see
great walls of wisdom and truth

serenade me
upon the night’s cold dark sweat

two hearts my tears contain
unwillingly i am drained
you are torn from my soul
she is sifted through my flesh
i have destroyed everything
i have betrayed everyone
the passion and the youth
the wisdom and the truth

serenade me
upon the night’s cold dark sweat
