Fifty Shots Of Whiskey


I'm pissed and i am pissed off
But i ain't going down
Many think that one more drink 
This man is gonna drown 
I'm tanked up like a fucking tank, ready for a fight
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight

I'm lookin' for ya bastard 
You better run and hide 
You have a gang that's with you 
But the devil's at my side
My bark may slur a little, but this dog is gonna bite
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight

And when i find ya bastard
The bells of hell will ring 
I kid you not, it's gonna hurt
These fists are gonna swing 
I'll hit you with a left hook, then floor you with a right
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight 
Said fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight... Boom!

Passing Through


I sit here reminiscing 
Of days long in my past
Those years have travelled swiftly  
They've come and gone so fast 
Those times spent round the campfire 
Where flames danced through the night 
Leaving smoldering embers 
As dawn replaced its light 

Those friends who were my brothers
In caravans called home 
They were the closest family 
That this man had ever known 
We'd smoke what nature gave us 
While music filled the air 
What little we all had back then 
We'd find enough to share

We found a place to settle 
A road side with a view 
Beside a rolling river
Like us just passing through 
The hills a welcome shelter
From winters hard to bare
I'd never found a place called home
Like i had found right there 

That fire keeps on burning
It warms my soul and heart
That family still remains with me
However far apart
And like that river passing through
We'll meet again sometime
I'll keep our fire burning 
In this gypsy heart of mine

Lucinda


Lucinda once a woman who'd been buried many years ago
Now tired of her resting she crawled from the grave she laid 
She didn't understand her neighbors, comfortable and cozy 
Who had visitors who knelt with them and listened as they prayed 
Lucinda once a woman, was a woman men would marry
She'd had the bluest eyes that any man had ever seen
And often at her fancy she would lay right down beside them
And take those men to places where no man had ever been
Lucinda walked for miles towards her final destination 
And soon stood at the doorway of her well remembered home
He hadn't moved her key from underneath the garden rock 
And so she walked right in to find the bastard sleeping all alone
Lucinda stood awhile and she just gazed upon the man
The very man who'd killed her with the poison that he gave
She saw a bottle by his side and thought that she might do the same
And send this vile creature to his well deserving grave
Lucinda though had other plans and slid beneath the silky sheets
And put an arm around him in the way she used to do
It wasn't long before the pig beside her gave a smile
Aware that down beneath the sheets anticipation grew
Lucinda sat upon him and she let him have his moment
He opened up his eyes and gave an agonizing cry 
The woman that he'd murdered was the corpse that sat upon him
The very one he'd poisoned and had watched once slowly die
Lucinda felt his heart as it beat heavy in his heaving chest
It stopped just like a broken clock and didn't make a sound
She felt a little tired and so returned back to the graveyard
Where at last she found her peace beneath the cemetery ground 

Franchesca


Franchesca was a little girl who loved her father dearly 
She sobbed her little heart out crying "Daddy can you hear me?"
The darkness she was deeply in had shrouded him from sight 
And everything surrounding her was black and pitch as night 
Her father sat beside her with his head held in his palms 
Remembering the baby that he once held in his arms 
He raised his head to see Franchesca pale in her bed 
Before the nurses sterile gaze confirmed his daughter dead 

Imelda


It once was told a house was built upon a silent hill, and stood there in the shadows now for many, many years
It's true to say that many often passed the door that filled them with an inner dread that preyed upon their deepest, darkest fears
But long ago this very place was home to sweet Imelda, who would run around its structure through the dark and empty halls 
It's said she had a gift, and she would see them as they freely moved around the house, then disappear behind the solid walls
No one ever visited, and as the seasons hurried by, a lonely woman lived within this dark and damp abode  
And with the passing years, the cracks and peeling paint were of an age in which this shadowed home of hers was miserably showed 
When passers by came close they'd hear the sobbing of Imelda, that would break the heart of any living thing that came to care
But all would keep their distance, as the fear was overwhelming... Imelda had her demons who were locked away in there
The voices that were heard were incoherent in a whisper, like the wind that sent a frozen finger running down a spine 
The sun would never shine upon the broken tiled rooftop, and the passers by would see this as a supernatural sign
So poor Imelda passed away and no one mourned her sorry soul, but still her sobs are heard as though she never really died 
And to this day not one has ever had the nerve to turn the handle of the creaking door of hers and visit her inside

Scarborough Fear


If you should go to Scarborough fair 
There's a field of heather and thyme 
Where the breeze shall whisper the name 
Of a girl that used to be mine 
In this field of purple and green 
Under rocks that lay on the ground
Lies my love who never returned 
Lies my love who's never been found 
It was there where i laid her down
Where the crows all witnessed my crime 
While i placed the stones on her grave 
In that field of heather and thyme

Beneath The Mask


If only i could find a way
To help me cope throughout the day
Without my mask for all to see
The ugliness bestowed on me
These eyes that i have grown to hate
This face i'd gladly mutilate 
So god himself won't recognize 
My mask, my face, my true disguise 
Yet under cover, my facade 
Of skin and bone this mess is made 
The mask itself protecting me 
From those that wish to see

House Of Pain


I built a house upon a hill
A little place to get my thrill
All visitors that dared to come
Would be my kick, my bit of fun
I had the hooks to hang them high 
I'd bleed their bodies till they dry
And sharpened knives would glint and shine 
Within this killers morbid shrine 
Screams would echo through the halls 
But no one hears the victims calls
Just those who came not seen again 
Could understand the house of pain 
And in this shack upon the hill 
It's guaranteed that blood will spill 
As I'm the landlord, ghoul and host 
And murder is what i like most

A Little Room For Me


I wondered where you went to
I looked but you weren't there
I thought that i might follow
But with thought i didn't dare
I ask that you might listen 
I was blind and couldn't see 
My prayer is you might try to find 
A little room for me

I threw myself in darkness 
Found the place called Babylon 
Not knowing of the hurt I'd find
Believing it was fun
I've worked hard for redemption 
Packed my bags so i could flee 
And I'm asking you to try and leave
A little room for me

My lies were only mortal 
Now stains I've left behind 
A lifetime spent deceiving 
Now seeks for peace of mind
I've thrown away my hatred 
From sins i've broken free 
And all i need to know is there
A little room for me

I've called your name a thousand times
Yet not heard your reply
I've gazed at every shining star 
Not one has caught my eye
Amidst this vast eternal 
I hope there just might be
A chance that you have saved a space
A little room for me

Darkness


I fell into the shadows like a meeting of lost friends 
I wrapped around the darkness as if trying to make amends 
At home amidst the silence, i felt safe within this place 
My arms in search for someone there in need of my embrace 
No gods or angels, only demons, summoned in their call 
They promised they would catch me if i had the strength to fall 
Then suddenly a light appeared, it sought to set me free 
As if somebody cared about the fate bestowed on me
I took a moment, thinking that if i should leave my pain
I may not have the darkness to protect me once again 

Your Pedestal


I sat on your pedestal waiting
Keeping it safe while you're gone
So high was its glory, my skin of milk white 
Was scorched by the heat of the sun 
Nobody noticed me waiting
They walked by without any care
Yet they'd have all stopped if i wasn't up here
And you were the one sitting there
I never intended to trade you
I thought i was being a friend  
But where are you now when i need your return
So I am then free to descend
The seasons have changed since you left me
The tides turned to salt from my tears 
And yet i remain here just waiting
Your promise of days became years 

Summer Lady


I watched my woman naked
As god designed at birth
I witnessed all her beauty 
No other on this earth 
She looked at me and smiled
Then held out her bare hand
What happened next is sacred
I hope you understand

And with that secret over
I held her to my chest
Our hearts they beat together 
My love for her expressed 
I heard her breathing softly 
And caught her breath in mine 
She wrapped her arms around me
And two would then entwine 

We gazed out through the window 
The moon was hanging high 
Stars of ancient glory 
Sprinkled on the sky 
And when i found her sleeping 
In crumpled sheets she dressed 
I felt so very special 
And never been more blessed 

The morning brought a new day 
And summer filled the air
I smiled down at my lady 
And brushed aside her hair
I kissed her ever gentle 
As every kiss should be 
Then laid back down beside her 
And held her tenderly

Chasms Of Despair


The shadows keep on calling me
I look but no ones there
The whispers they continue still
From chasms of despair 
They tell me that they're waiting
My end is overdue 
I only need to have the faith
To help them pull me through

Deathly Silence


A black rose wilted, took a bow, then died
The breeze held its breath............ (All was still)........... Till it sighed 
Petals fell like feathers to the birthing ground 
Death was so silent... That it left no sound

Punk As Fuck


I'd swallow pills for simple thrills 
And drink as if i had to sink
Into a world that felt more real 
A place where i could think
My head would spin from deep within 
And there i'd find the inner me 
Not someone who was chastised 
With a longing to be free 
And in this state of anger, hate 
I'd look around in such disdain 
And spit my thoughts from what became 
A sharp and razored tongue 
The freak in me was always there 
Exploding from a childs despair 
My past was never "Just bad luck"
But simply Punk as fuck!

Poet To Poet


I bet you wish i'd go away
And come back on a brighter day
Then write about the birds and bees
Of swaying flowers, leafy trees 
Or maybe how the sunshine glows 
How sea might feel upon my toes
But here i am and here i'll stay
"I WILL NOT go away!"
I write about the things i see
About the fears concerning me
The truth is what I'm here to tell
You know me oh so well!
I may be morbid, always dark
My purpose to ignite a spark
That sets alight your cozy place
And slaps you in the face
So wake up poets, look around! 
There's blood upon your flowered ground 
And bombs fall from your sunny sky
As starving, broken children cry 
I cannot close my eyes to this 
Your happy ditti's take the piss
Of every teardrop ever spilt 
As dying flowers wilt 

Anger IS An Energy


John Lydon he once said these words
To most they sounded quite absurd 
"Anger Is An Energy"
Makes perfect fucking sense to me
As every day i wake to find
A rage that courses through my mind
It helps me cope throughout the day 
To face the crap that comes my way
It's in the poems that i write 
I seldom bark but always bite
Anger IS an energy!
Of that i guarantee

With A Girl Like You


You could give me diamonds 
You can buy me rings
Cover me in flowers 
All those stupid things
But what i want...
If you only knew
I would just be happy
With a girl like you

You could sing me love songs
You can break my heart
You could even end it
If you let it start
"Cause what i want...
Is that something new
And i bet i'd find it
With a girl like you

But i guess you're always out of reach 
Like some exotic star
No matter then how close i get
You'll be forever far 

But what i want...
If my dreams come true
Is that you'll see this lost boy
With a girl like you

With a girl like you-oo
With a girl like you-oo
With a girl like you-oo
With a girl like you

Yesterday


Yesterday you told me that you loved me
Yesterday you kissed me tenderly 
Now you say you're leaving without warning 
Something 'bout you needed to be free

Yesterday i felt that we were sacred 
Yesterday i looked into your eyes 
Now i see the promises you made me
They were only stupid little lies 

Yesterday i woke to find you with me 
Yesterday i watched you slowly breathe 
Now my heartbeat races with anxiety 
As i watch you close the door and leave 

Yesterday i guess it never mattered 
Yesterday now seems so long ago
Now i sit here by myself in silence 
Broken is the man you'll never know

Free Fall

I climbed up a mountain, a place to feel free
I looked down and saw many following me
I needed the space, so i shouted and said
"I'm needing this space to un-clutter my head!"
But they kept on coming, the line only grew 
What monkeys all see, other monkeys will do
So i leapt from the summit and fell through the air
As I'd never find freedom up there!

Crash


I take one more mouthful of Jacky D... and swallow. It spills from my mouth like a fuel pump overflowing from a tank that won't take another drop more. This body is full, and blood is minimal... I am now running on JD alone. A car crash ready to happen.
I drive myself along a footpath, Feeling more like a bumper car than a cadillac. My lights don't work and everything's a blur. People walk by, avoiding the maniac behind the wheel who can't control his vehicle... Surely he will collide with someone!
I light a Silk Cut red, with the flick of a thumb, The Zippo sets my innards alight and fire rages through my veins. And out from my lungs smoke flows as it would from any inferno.
For a moment, i look up at the sky. And then everything makes sense... This vehicle has already crashed. Stars hang around me like a cartoon character who has been hit by something ridiculous. The rabbit, cat, duck or wolf may have been hit by a rock, an ironing board, a freight train or a ten ton weight.
Me... I had been hit by life.

The Answer

"Am i scared to die?" You ask me
Well, I am i must confess
In answer to your question then
A honest answer "Yes"
But ask me "Am i scared to live?"
Then this is my reply 
"I'm more afraid of living than i am afraid to die"

Masterpiece

If i had a gun right now
I'd show you how I'm feeling
Reveal the thoughts within my mind
Once sprayed upon the ceiling 
It might not tell you very much
Though all is on display 
This art of mine a masterpiece 
Of how i feel today

A Psychiatric Thought

 I came to you for help
Begging, pleading, needing, bleeding
You fobbed me off with pills prescribed 
Through your professional gaze 
You spoke to me in jargon 
Then you sent me on my way
I took your pills like clockwork 
Which then left me in this daze 
So now i ask you this...
If i should kill somebody now!
Would it not be your fault?
You never called me back!
Appointments promised didn't come
Just more of your damn pills
Would you not be the responsible  
For my drug crazed attack? 
I will leave you with this darker thought
While you carry on with others 
Who pretend they have a problem 
So they get their benefit 
And all the time you spend with shirkers 
My mind plays a little game
And as i sit here waiting 
Personalities may split

Oh, Jah. I Want To Be Positive


Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh sweet Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

But I have seen the white man, he hunt us down
I have seen my people run
So many black man brought to ground
From many white man gun 
I ask you Jah, I need to know
Why we live in fear?
Did not creation born this man?
Did not Jah bring us here?

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

But i have seen the fear in black man eyes 
I have known much of his pain
I have stood my ground so many times
But knocked down i again 
Yet you are here, you with me always
I keep you here within 
Where white man cannot find you then
As he not touch my skin 

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

You gave us herb that grows from earth
Yet white man criticize 
He make it bad yet his tobacco 
He does legalize 
We born his slave, we never free
We taken from our home 
Without you Jah, i ask of this
Would i not be alone?

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh sweet Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative

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 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

The Lone Thrush

A thrush sat in a dying tree 
Singing songs for all to hear
It's song such perfect harmony 
As crystal as the day was clear
The other birds all startled spoke
"Why sing in such a dreary tree?"
The thrush returned his answer
"So someone will notice me"

Pretty Little Head

I did not think to ask you your name
It seemed we'd known each other long
I thought i'd seen that pretty little head  
It's not often that i am proved wrong
Didn't we once sail the seas on a clipper ship?
Or was that a memory i once caused to sink 
Maybe it was in some seedy motel room
If you'd just give me a moment to think!
I seem to remember those cherry red lips 
Although lines from your years i've not noticed before
You wear them so well with such elegant grace
If you don't mind me saying, you would suit a few more 
Weren't we beggars awhile in years distant past?
Wearing rags that dressed only our shivers at night 
Where all that we had was nothing but us
And we bathed in day under anything light
Maybe it was Eden where i first saw your face!
Was it there that i tasted your warm tender kiss?
You were the fruit that was strictly forbidden 
But one that i could not resist 
I guess that my memory just isn't that good
And i suppose that all past is now slipping away
But i know you from somewhere! Do you mind if i ask?
What name are you using today?

Christ White Light

I stand here in your Christ white light
Surrounded by the pitch of night
A second coming yet unseen 
To cleanse my sins and wipe me clean
Within this petrifying light
I feel the heat of deeper night
Eternal darkness kissing me
With such desire, so passively 
If i should step out from your light
And give myself to thee tonight 
Would there be any space for me?
To delve into infinity 
Without a light i cannot shine 
Or fill this hollow that is mine 
I wait upon your mercy call
Before i step and fall  

Secret Cabaret

In this secret cabaret 
Sheets in twisted disarray 
Hair disheveled, skin unclean 
The mirrors misted ghostly sheen 
Amidst this den of tortured lies
Still echoing perverted cries 
Bodies stretched now lying still
Contented with unholy fill 
Sweat drips cold on hot licked flesh 
The sins which neither shall confess 
Heartbeats simmer, silence loud 
No love in here allowed 
In the shadows candles dance 
Ignited by a spirit trance 
One which holds no bounds of sleep
Enticing those to fall in deep
In an act of mortal whim 
Where every bent and splintered limb
Shall blindly fall undignified  
And keep their shame inside

Armageddon


Armageddon...
Is on its way
Maybe tomorrow 
Who's to say? 
Are you ready?
Now don't pretend
Your time is coming
Embrace your end

Armageddon...
Open your eyes 
See the blood drenched wastelands
Where the dead shall rise
Nowhere to run to 
No place to hide 
You shall drink your worst fears 
In the tears you cried 

Armageddon...
Is about to fall
When the lights go out 
Hell shall welcome all
When your nerves start twitching 
And your life expires   
We will burn forever 
In eternal fires 

Epitomize

What of all i've hated?
Of all that i've despised!
Everything i've frowned upon
Should i epitomize!
To be the vulture swooping down 
Intent to find his fill
No matter then the enemy 
Or who i choose to kill
I'd hang upon a splintered cross
I'd be the lone wolfs howl
Or just content as shadow
In the darkness where i'd prowl 

You, Of All Teachers


I once met a butcher 
Who was killing a lamb 
I said "What gives you the right to take innocent life?"
He said "You my friend, you would not understand
You've not known of the death that i take with this knife
If you like, i will show you, i will teach you my trade
Then you will honestly know how a murder is made"

I came to a dealer
Who was selling his crack
I said "Why do you paint all these lost souls in black?"
He said "Follow me, if you must know the truth
You will see that they need me, I'll give you the proof
And if you like, once i've shown you, i will teach you my trade
You can resurrect demons from the hell i have made"

I saw a politician 
And i looked in his eyes
I said "How can you spread such deceit with your lies?"
He said "You are but one in a score i can't fool
But the others i master, of them i can rule!
If you listen, i'll show you, i shall teach you my trade
You can help correct errors in judgements i've made"

I bumped into God 
And i asked him of this
"You once gave your son to a traitors cold kiss
Of all of the teachers in which i have learned
It is you that i find myself mostly concerned 
You watched over killings, yet don't seem to care
And left so many lives in such pain and despair"
God he just sighed "Shall i teach you my trade?
My angel, my devil, the man i once made"

I Will Hold You (Till The Morning Comes)


I... Know you understand
That i need your hand
Just to get me there
You... Are that place called love
And the one true thing...
That I'm certain of 

In the night
That's when i need you
In the night
I'll guarantee you
Through the night
I will hold you... till the morning comes 

You... Like an unlocked door
Bring me back for more
I'd like to thank you babe
I... Know you care for me 
But you let me go...
Never to need a key

Because...

In the night
That's when i need you
In the night
I'll guarantee you
Through the night
I will hold you... till the morning comes 

We... We are much the same
Had our share of pain
But i'd never hurt you
So... When the night skies fall
You can count on me... I will hear you call

In the night
You know that i need you
In the night
I'll guarantee you
Through the night
I will hold you... till the morning comes 

In the night
That's when i need you
In the night
I'll guarantee you
Through the night
I will hold you... till the morning comes 




The Final Laugh

I'll not forget this battle
You were winning for a while
But i required the final laugh
And cut myself a smile 
So now you'll never beat me
No matter how hard you try
I'll still be smiling, even if...
You cause your son to cry

Of All The Girls

Of all the girls i've known before 
It's you the one i thought of 
I saw your eyes and knew... 
that this is what it's like to be in love
I dreamed about you many times 
I pulled you from the water 
And held you in my arms then cried...
"Thank god it's me that caught ya!"
You were drifting to another place
A land beyond the calling sea
Far enough to take you...
where you"d never be alone with me 
I woke to find you lying here
Naked at my side
I sat and stroked your pretty hair
Before i gently cried 
Because my dreaming was so real
Was it thoughts that you were feeling?
A secret locked away inside 
That you had been concealing 
I could never love another 
You are all i ever wished for 
And if truth be known
My wish came true and you were so much more...
than any gift that's ever given 
I often compliment the angels 
Who surely placed you here with me
Surrounding you in candles 
That burn within the midnight hour
With ghosts upon the ceiling 
Watching every move you make
Incase you thought of leaving 
But you open up your tired eyes 
Just like the day that's dawning 
And roll into my loving arms 
Where you stay until the morning 
I wake and smell the coffee 
That she pours me everyday
And all my fears and worries... drift away  

Consider a Moment

If i may ask you'll consider a moment to stay for awhile 
I will promise you truth from a heart that reflects with a smile
I cannot move mountains but truth is, i've not even tried! 
If i said that i had then you'd know from the start i had lied 
I've not parted an ocean, but who in their right mind would say?
I could give it a go if you'll consider that moment to stay
Maybe the stars are the jewels that you'd like me to reach!
We could find them in pools on the rocks if we searched on the beach  
I may not have money but love in abundance i'd give
You might find that's all that a lifetime in love needs to live 
And all that i ask is you'll sleep in my arms with that smile
And consider that moment and hopefully stay here awhile 

Pills

I cannot stop this trembling 
As I walk upon soft clouds
The light has taken everything
That darkness often shrouds 
My mind no longer mine it seems
Confusion settling in 
I think about what might have been 
Without the pills within 
If all the hurt i locked away
Pours free from me at last
Then what of years i've wasted
That are now a distant past 

Mourning Light

Seek the glow of morning light
Where angels wings may take to flight 
No demons here to bark or bite 
Until the falling of the night
Avoid the glint of mourning light
The silent guild forever bright
Keeping dusk and dawn at bay 
To drag your soul away

Broken

When the breakdown finally found him
Violent storms had swelled in size
Tear duct dams then overflowed 
And freed themselves from desperate eyes 
The people saw this man as strong
His nature not to fall apart
But they'd not seen the fractured pump
That crumbled in his heart
To them his worries never mattered
He would pull himself on through
Unbeknown to other eyes 
His ship was sinking in the blue
And in his torment very dark
He turned his ship from distant docks
Which only steered his sorry soul 
To crash upon the rocks
