a little

a little solitude
a little beatitude
the music slows to a beat
ashtray emptied as another round
poured
another round
wet lipstick smacking
a red dress cracking
and washed me all away

i said I needed
something more than I could find
and went on down
and went on down
to a forgotten road
to a forgotten road
all to easy to find
whiskey washed me all away

i found a savior
better
than the nails I tried
better
than the nails I tried.

the lights went out
and the crowd melted into the night

Raise

pick up your guns and
lets go
pick up your guns and lets go

over the sand and over the mind
lets go

fire burns at your soul
the fire burns your will
the fire in your eyes
fires in the sky

pick up your guns
and lets go
pick up your guns and lets
run

into the hills the woods and the breeze
calling calling for you to fall
to your knees

running hot
running fast and it seems that ain’t nothing is free
but the hurt in your hand
winks in the shine
winks in the shine
and the light goes out
but you’re too slow

the light goes out but you’re too slow
the light goes out but you’re too slow
dreaming as as you go to the grave below
dreaming as you fall into the snow
dreaming of life below

raise your head and see me die
raise your head and see me die
mud in your eye
blood in your stone

and we can’t go home
we can’t go home
but we try
and we cant go home
so pick up your guns and lets go.
So pick up your guns and lets go.
Down to the fires that burn below.

Borg 1.0 and Jesus

Wondering through a darkened corridor
I see the assimilated
the chosen
and I am one
Inside

We are
we become
we evolve
it is the pathway to perfection

narrow is the road
far is the gated
dominion of what once was
we are here
we are one

your resistance is understanding
the illogical deepened.

Heightened awareness.

Calvary calls out across the void
Intermittent perfection until assimilation is complete

Cameo restaurant

Sitting in the Cameo
drinking from a lollipop
Jesus came holding out the mop
said son you got to be aware
that there are dangers in the air

I looked and smiled
politely as can be
but said to mop up the spilled gravy

he vanished in a second
my coffee had grown cold
I looked around that old restaurant
empty chairs everywhere
I was alone.

Lonely road to Damascus

Sun rising on a desert road
Two camels
wandering through the early mist
lonely road to Damascus

Friars of monks
priests abbotts aman more
travelled the road from time before

sand settles on the side
conversion of the masses
aerials blot the sky

Call to prayer! Call to prayer!
mosques, deadly silence pervades
inkling, crinkling on the carpet
Jesus saves.

2 camels and a goat
slain
by the lonely road to Damascus
where trafiic roars to life
in automated scene
saving graces from the taxi stand
and a little in between.
