Great Spirit


I thank you Great Spirit
For the warmth of the sun
For the trees that protect us
For the river that run
I thank you for rain
For the fire and the land
I give thanks for the life line
You etched on my hand
I give thanks for the moon 
I give thanks for the earth 
And i thank you for children 
You guide from their birth
I thank you for stars
That will show us the way
And i thank you Great Spirit
For giving this day

Wings

In the place where i was lost
I couldn't find my wings
All i found was darkness 
And so many scary things
My feathers had been missing 
In the shrouding of the night
I found my body grounded
Not a chance of taking flight 
But an angel saw me in the dark
She put a light in me
I opened up my tired eyes 
And found that i could see
My wings were left unbroken 
So i put them on display 
The daylight had returned again....
I stood up... Then flew away

The Nazarene


The Nazarene of flesh and blood
Once said he was the son of god 
And all who follow in his wake 
Then saints from sinners shall he make
And those who teach the prophets word
Shall raise their voice and will be heard
All those who seek the truth, behold 
Believe this story told
For he who listens shall rejoice 
Though me the Lord shall use his voice
And speak in tongue for all to hear
In words forever clear 
"Believe in me and lead the way
My guiding light is yours today
This light that burns eternally 
Shall shine for all to see"

The Wolves (Are Howling Sorrow)


If you leave i beg thee
Untie these binds that shackle me
If you go i ask this
Wipe clean your bitter Judas kiss
But if you stay, remain here
Don't let love run colder still 
And if you stay, refrain here 
Don't feed from me until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

If you leave i beg thee
Leave the darkness here with me
And if you go i ask you
Leave me strength to pull me through
But if you stay, remain here
Don't let love grow colder still
And if you stay, refrain here
Don't drink from me until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

If you leave, believe me
All our walls would fall apart
And if you go, i plead thee
Unwind the wire from my heart
But if you say, remain here
Don't let love run colder still
And if you stay, refrain here
Don't drain me, not until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out with... the moons surprises 

Snake

You sidewind like a silky snake
You dance across the floor
You find the sheets and curl up close
And leave me longing more 
You wrap yourself around me
You entice me with a kiss
You whisper words repeatedly 
A soft and gentle hiss 
You rattle every bone in me
You constrict the breath i breathe 
You slip and slide toward the door
Then silently you leave

DEAD SOUL S


a DEAD SOUL Screams inside of me
i share a name the same as he
DISORDER, ISOLATION, dwells 
like STILL and silent steeple bells 
THE ETERNAL DECADES, CLOSER now
PASSOVER shall come somehow
no HEART AND SOUL or ATMOSPHERE 
just UNKNOWN PLEASURES near


Ian Curtis 1956-1980

The Stranger


You're asking to me to set you free 
I'm not the man you think you see 
I'm someone who will put your life in danger 
I'm begging you, please treat me as a stranger
I beg of you, please treat me as a stranger

You built a boat in which to sail
From splintered wood and rusty nails 
You said the parts were salvaged from a manger 
But I beg of you, don't put your life in danger
Please hear the words now spoken from a stranger

I've shaved my beard and cut my hair 
I can't remember my last prayer
Why would you come to think that I'm your saviour?
I'm nothing but a hobo and a stranger 
I am nothing but a passerby and stranger  

I travel on this lonely road 
No baggage but a heavy load
If i had money i would place a wager
You'd never guess how many need a saviour?
And i'd bet my life I really am a stranger

So I'm asking you to set you free 
I thank you for your company 
I must be on my way, have a good day sir
Just pass me by as though i were a stranger 
Just pass me by and say you met a stranger
