Would you but dare

Would you but dare

To lift up into this light
On to this highway
And into this flight

Of the mortal soul
And its joy and sorrow
Would you be but here
Where intersects all your tommorows

Do you see the chance
Can you make the change
Can you cut the distance
Measure the range

Or will it all be possibility
Will it all remain the same
Where the journey is but a plan
And adventure but an empty name

Can you hear the truth calling
Do you have the heart to engage
Where only on the wing can you see
There's never been a door on the cage

On not admitting to using insults as a fishing expedition

Nobody really sees it

If it can't be proved to be true
If one just manuevers the words around
The witnesses fall blind to what you do

There is no blue in the sky
There is no beauty to any flower
Oh how I could go on with such truths
For hour after boring hour

Who am I now

Who am I now

If I can't tell you
How much you've touched my soul
How much you make me feel
Like the real deal rock n roll

Who am I now

If I can't tell you
How unsure I can get
And that there are memories
Behind me I'd rather forget

But sometimes when I think of you
It's lace and grace and precious time
While others it's sex appeal and
Twisted steel and I can't make up my mind

Who am I now

As I sit here and wonder
About all this grand illusion
Knowing but at least while
You're in's sweet confusion
