my friend Rush

i got a few minutes, so i
think ill shoot from the hip
not hold anything back now
gonna really let her rip
been keeping it all bottled up inside
for so long now i might cry
but i really need to let it all out
theres something so large
it cant be seen
and something so small
it cant be missed
would you come if i call
or would you run away
and jump the wall
see if you can get to the door
before i fall
you know those words you said
they put me on the floor
so i pick myself up and smile
and say thankyou
for all the things
that you put me through
and i thank you again
for the way that you are
cause without your lens
my eye camera
doesn't focus at all
my friends cat
her name is Rush
she likes to sit in the tub
and stare at me
with her gold green glowing eyes
she ducks her head to hide
cause she knows that i can't see her
if she can't see me
then we play "string"
for hours and hours on end

mr charlie

I won't even take your life
Won't even take a limb
Just unload my shotgun
And take a little skin

Well you take a silver dollar
Take a silver dime
Mix it up together
In some alligator wine

I can hear the drums
Voodoo all night long
Mister Charlie telling me
I can't do nothing wrong

A snowy day
To sit and see
laughing water dancing free
on tye dye dreams
the whiteness lay
Feel the sky as snowflakes fly

First thought

When we talk this way
The back and forth of good idea
There is no separation now
We are all together now
Always were and always will be
It just takes a little push
And then we are all sailing free
Is not that what we rightly have come here for
Is not that what these guys showed us all to see
Build the superstructure of musical form
Build it slowly slowly
Taking time and great care
That all the pieces fit in just exactly
perfectly
And then you set off to climb
Climb that superstructure into the sky
And when you achieve and overcome
And the top of the mountain
you see
You run right up without a second thought
And fling yourself into the sky
No need for flapping now
Just think first thought
And you are free

I think I'm Going to Fly

If it's true
Then you will know
Right to the point where
No man goes
No man goes

No man goes
Down that road alone
It hurts just to watch
Someone going to stub their toe
on that same old tree root
Still poking it's head
up out of the ground

It's been done before
But never
All the way home
That is why we are here
To see it through

Walking to nowhere
Doesn't take twice as long
As it ususally did.

I can find my way there
In a moment now
Surrounded by Love
Inside and outside
And up on the ridge

Throwing my arms to the sky
I think I'm going to fly

standing on the shoulders of giants

Wlaking down the railroad tracks
Counting counting
Flipping that old monkey wrench
Over and over
I see no new tracks in the snow
Now we are where no one goes
Into the midnight breath
Frost growing on the walls
Wind chill advisories
Make me want to take a walk
Riding down the road
Through the night
Watching the highway
Disappear under my feet
If I freeze the scene
It blurs out to clarity
Lines of angels descending
On light beams
Make me smile
Everytime

Selfless Breath

With this loss of nothingness, we leave these surroundings a selfless breath
Moment to moment, act to action, these ordinary acts of spirit.

Destroy our transparent cage as liberation takes us to its center of definition
The participants simplify the inevitable, here forth throughout the darkness dismissed.

Quite as a hospital eventually the bedside struggle
Improves unto a condition foreseen as a continuum complete.

Relinquished the voicing falling silently out of mind
Into a formless neutrality, beholden unto a firmaments eternal repletion.
