From A to Z

Well, let's see, if he's got anything left
I just had to get that one offa my chest
Seemed like forever, but now that you're here
I want to dive into your ocean
And whisper in your ears
But if you're gonna have any more
Of those brilliant ideas
Like falling in love with me
And leaving me in tears
Please won't you please
Run them by me
I can't wait to see;
I can't wait to see
If he's got anything left
Just had to get that one
Offa my chest
Just like that, with no regrets
All I know about that, is for me,
She's the best, don't want no more
So what, what, what! are you waiting for
To dive into my ocean
And run acroos my shore
But if you're gonna have
Anu more of those brilliant ideas
Like falling in love with me
And leaving me in tears
Please won't you please
Run them by me
I can't wait to see
I can't wait to see.

Cherry Blossoms

The cherry blossoms ...
Decorate the garden floor.
Though, the caretaker ...
Doesn't live here any more.

The song birds sing ...
Till the break of dawn.
Then go off and bring ...
What was once upon.

All come where there welcome.
Now they seldom ever come ...
They seldom ever come ...

Now in despair.
Feel it in the air.
Frozen in ice.
No sacrifice.

No one has spoken.
The peace is broken.

Buried beneath.
Underneath ...
The snow.
This you know.

The cherry blossoms ...
Decorate the garden floor.
Though, the caretaker ...
Doesn't live here any more.

Spring will arrive ...
And come alive.
Nothing changed ...
Is left un-arranged.

Now in despair ...
Feel it in the air.
Lilies below ...
Wait to grow.

No one has spoken.
The peace is broken.

All tears shed.
In fear, dead.

The cherry blossoms...
Decorate the garden floor.
Though, the caretaker ...
Doesn't live here any more.

No, not anymore!

Set me free

Set me free Set me free
Why must it take so much time
Like an endless wave over the ocean
Set me free set me free
Like the wind through the trees,
Like a flower unfolding eternally;
Set me free set me free
It was all building to something
That's what you promised me
Set me free set me free
Why didn't you tell me it was something
That my eyes could never see;
Set me free set me free
Hah, you caught me looking, now
I see you looking back at me
Set me free set me free
Like the light from a diamond
That's just too bright to see
Set me free set me free
You told me that the world that we can see
Is but a symbol of the true reality
Set me free set me free
Get me out of this cage
Immediately
Set me free set me free
That's what a liitle birdie said to me
I said here's the key
Set me free set me free.

Providence 84

You see, and look right on by,
Cause I'm not there to you;
You don't have to see me,
Cause I'm not in your world;

Lock your doors, Cross the street,
When you see me coming;
You better hit your feet,
When you see me running,

Cause you don't understand,
I'm just another man -- Unfamiliar;
Not following rules;
This is what they warned you about
When you went to school;

When you see me running,
When you see me running;

You see and look right on by,
Cause I'm not there to you;
You don't have to see me.
Cause I'm not in your world;

Lock your doors, Cross the street,
When you see me coming;
You better hit your feet
When you see me runnin',

Cause you don't understand,
I'm just another man;
When you see me runnin' ,
When you see me runnin'.

Little by Slow

Little by Slow

In turn we fall, we fly, we fail. The sun burns wisdom on the dragons tail.
The street never sleeps, neither do i. Little by slow we live or we die.
Dragon bone dust...deaths warm smile. My days pass by like an endless mile.
Monteca, milagro, siempre, por que? The devil, a miracle, always, why? Little by slow we live or we die. The street never sleeps, neither do i.
In turn we fall, we fly, we try. Little by slow we live or we die.

Box Cat Bones

Doin' the big old boxcat bones,
Shufflin' the ash, down on the coast;
Never look back, as long as you're loose;
No time to blow, when you're cutting the caboose.

Send a square cat, down for his dues,
He never come back, they never found his shoes;
Don't you look back, as long as you're loose,
And don't you know, they never found out who's

Down doin' the mean old big boxcat blues,
Don't count on it, or you'll learn to lose;
Tell it to me straight now, we may only have this once,
I'll keep it from my lips, until the morning comes.

We'll let the morning bring on the day
What will come, will come to be;
Never stop a boat from docking at the pier,
Never keep a ship from reaching to the sea.

Down on the wharf, late last night,
Doin' the big old boxcat bones;
Shufflin' down the boardwalk,
Lookin' for a light.

Doin' the big old boxcat bones,
Shufflin' the ash, down on the coast;
Never look back, as long as you're loose,
No time to blow, when you're cutting the caboo'.

the time arrives
bills to pay
moral debts

greenbacks become wallpaper

god help us all.

Song for Stacy

All night, in the rain;
Ridin' on the Glenwood train,
--Give me back my angel;
Couldn't stand the pain;
So I left my life behind,
--Give me back my angel;

I met her in 1849, on a corner
In Phil-adelphia, P. A.;
It wasn't very long, before
She worked her ways on me,
And stole my heart away;
--Give me back my angel;

All night in the rain
Ridin' on the Glenwood train,
--Give me back my angel;
Couldn't stand the pain,
So I left my life behind,
--Give me back my angel;

When it began to snow,
Well she said she had to go,
And don't you be a stranger;
Just then the wheels left the road,
I cried 'Look out below',
--Give me back my angel;

All night in the rain
Ridin' on the Glenwood train,
--Give me back my angel;
Couldn't stand the pain
So I left my life behind
--Give me back my angel
--Give me back my angel.

It's the Fool

When I went to school, they told me the rules,
But now that I'm through, I ask, who's the fool?
I used to believe, that the world was free,
But now I've learned, it's the fool, who gets burned.

For there's a machine we call reality,
The knots that tie, in the end, make you die
And history proves, that the rich, with their greed,
Just use the rest of us, to fuel their evil need.

When I went to school, they told me the rules,
Now that I'm through, I ask, who's the fool?
I used to believe that the world was free,
But now I've learned that it's the fool, who gets burned.

Some seek their freedom in the rocks and the trees
But in the end, most let the fear win;
So, now what do we do, so ordinary,
Just wait for the end, to do us in again?

Why not look for a way, to make it work today,
It doesn't work for anyone, until it works for us all.

When I went to school, they told me the rules,
But now that I'm through, I ask who's the fool?
I used to believe that the world was free
But now I've learned, it's the fool, who gets burned,
But now I've learned, it's the fool, who gets burned.
