It can't happen here

We would never be invaded by illegal aliens
Without one meaningful shot
We would never return them over and over again
So they can be released and re-caught

We would never bow to the Saudis
We would never take from Chavez a book
We would never ignore North Korea
And give their sinking of ships no second look

It can't happen here
There will never be thousands of gangs
With millions of members roaming the street
Out there wilding looking for a chance to bang

We'll never be turned to Socialism
By a scum bag with a serpents tongue
Our schools will never be used and abused
To brain wash our young

There will never be so dark of night
There will never be such an evil storm
That demons will run amok
And with impunity kill the unborn

They would never put on trial
Three SEALs some of America's best
What Jag Off would take such an order
Would subject honorable men to such

An abjectly detestable test


It could never happen here
It could never happen here
The sun will always shine
The way will always be clear

But fear can be a good thing
It whispers in our ear
It tells us to ready ourselves
It tells us something is very near

For it is not that we are afraid when even
Truth must face those who would doubt it
And even if the earth itself does tremble
We must ask ourselves

What ragged and weary worn heart
Will still rise to to do something about it

The Truth

The truth

The truth isn't always beautiful
The truth isn't always easy to take
But it beats bein false hearted
And living your life as a fake

The truth isn't always comfortable
And most of the time must be earned
But turning away from it and hiding
Can definitely leave a mark that burns

The truth is the truth and without it
You truly can end up hurting yourself
But even worse than that
You can selfishly and mindlessly

Inflict pain on someone else

Try hard to love yourself
Because if you don't who can
Love for beginners is often only
Restricted as that between a woman and man

But what about the skys
What about the songs
What about the moon
Not everything has to be right or wrong

Let in some harmony
Some wisdom in a book
Try having some respect
For the things in life

That deserve more than a cursory look

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 the late night hours

And in the late night hours

When the souls come out to
Walk the grounds
You can feel their passing through you
As they move without a sound

Oh how they long for freedom
Freedom from the grave
But their chances died out right with them
And now there's nothing left to save

I've been down

I've been down

I've been shattered and splattered
I've been lied to and tied up to please
I've been lifted up to the sky
And left crying on my knees

I've been thrown out
I've been invited back in
I've been told that all my best times
Are nothing but living sin


But I'll never forget you
You were so wild and insane
I'll never ever ever forget
What's her name

Hey baby that's not true
Maybe it's just the howling wind
Maybe it would all come back
If I heard us moan together again


I've been rocked by the best
I've been rolled by the worse
I've had to call a taxi
But all they sent was a hearse

I've been down some hard roads
I've slept on floors and feather beds
But I'm beginning to think
I'm never gonna get you outta my head

dedication to desire and Desiree
