So Sweet To Watch

So Sweet To Watch

as long as i identify with everything i feel
pain and pleasure must appear to be all real
so if i’m feeling happy if i’m feeling blue
i buy the conviction that they’re what’s true

as long as i identify with everything i think
then i’m still the victim of my mental stink
i can be the judge of them i can tear me up
i can sip superior from the poisoned cup

    in love or fear third rate top notch
    it’s all the same so sweet to watch

everything seems better when i track the flow
somehow i can stay amused no matter where i go
it’s like a loving grandpa watching toddlers play
he just chuckles kindly as they whirl away

    in love or fear third rate top notch
    it’s all the same so sweet to watch

i am like a movie popcorn and a plot
running every moment til one day i’m not
time to take a seat now and let the lights go dim
so far i can’t seem to get my fill of him

    in love or fear third rate top notch
    it’s all the same so sweet to watch

    in love or fear third rate top notch
    it’s all the same so sweet to watch

Tomb Of The Sacred

Posted on November 26, 2013

Tomb Of The Sacred

mask of reason hidden rage
blow the bastards off the stage
faster faster grow the brand
dispossessed the seething stand

shorn of nature self obsessed
stunned and prodded lost depressed
we sprint forward past the brink
shouting slogans as we sink

    what can be said come the fall of the species
    what can be sung near the end of the world
    what can be saved in the torrents of crisis
    what can be found when the trail runs cold

god’s anointed devil’s spawn
soon all innocence long gone
once the tribal ways looked pure
until we fell for that techno cure

    what can be drunk when the glass is all empty
    what can endure when the oceans rebel
    what can redeem when the temples shout kill them
    what can break free when blind systems compel

bottom line astride the ball
religion funneled through the mall
a pseudo world enshrined on line
praying desperate for a sign

    what can emerge from the tomb of the sacred
    what can give peace to the clamoring dead
    what can bring warmth when the heart was extinguished
    what can survive when the spirit has fled  2X

Brother To Brother

string of curses jaw to jaw
ready to throw down we’re so raw
i can remember the love back when
what ever happened in us since then

Mermaid

i was fishing in the twilight down by the sea
when a mermaid surfaced and she spoke to me
what are you seeking what can you give
i was once a human too we don’t get long to live

Is there a more unique and amazing song than Randy Newman's "Shame?"  What a brilliant, funny, dark character study.
