A Past Life

lyrically close the curtain on me twice
and i’m hurting me
it’s nice when the family leaves, when the family bleeds
right
when i’m washing my hands of calamity
call me Mr. Philanthropy
captain catastrophe, Los Angeles redacted
Japan had me at the factory
no, when i was 17
no, when i was unclean
it shows me that the powers have needed
the ones that couldn’t read it
feed the fires that burn ever at night
brief respite
from words that are meaningless, the answer couldn’t free me
but i know the worth inside, the earth it flies freely now
do you see me now God
now that the love has gone cold, now that the wonders you behold
have turned the hourglass inside there
inside where, it’s cold and i know the time has come
to bring the one
the only dust, the hellish lust and the King, he’s what?
an animal?
you cannot have the language though
you will not sow the seeds of doubt
the realm says no, yeah i would know
and i’m wondering where the grief givers go
fetch me the water, call me the father
lure me to the hot gates of hell
feed me a fortune that no teller could spell
please, no
i am the one the truth finds
i serve the Goddess and she lives blind
in the rust, in the trees, the dust, it bleeds
slowly now do you see the meaning that breathes me
the leaves and the kings meet
the oceans that parted, the dance that has started
innumerable objects fall down from the ceiling
the cosmic conundrum that has me reeling
it has me feeling, the noise inside
the sun will guide
and while we are out wandering
the men lie there, deceiving
plans fail, and cities fall, the love fades
we had it all
no abrupt endings to the passage of time
no dark tunnels that end with a white lime
fuck dying
you sit there wondering where to cut lines
where to end
nowhere, no rush, earth mends
no time, hush hush
and all i wanted was a toothbrush

Star Hollow

in the night i was found sleeping
dreaming dark with water streaming
reeling from the pain i felt
delivered unto time withheld
i was then left to fall apart
in agony with empty heart
in the barrows i was breathing
salt and sulphur, suffered healing
i was lost within myself
and often found to be misleading
if i am myself today
pray that i would stay this way
not the shell of hollow scars
a barren man of broken bars
cast to rivers filled with tar
water borne, from shivered stars
i am wakened, no more sleeping
for myself and others feeling
slowly, quiet down this creeping
water falls when we’re mistreating
woodland meadows in my sight
but blinded by the starry night
i linger on into the morn
lost at love, my soul forlorn
slowly steal into my shadow
woman of my dreams and marrow
wander onto dreamscape shores
and know my heart is ever yours
queen of ages, goddess moon
the sons and daughters ever swoon
for malice grips, and keeps repeating
i love you still
the veil revealing

The Sun of Man

i am faced with a question
to know the answer is bliss
and it would mean death in all its forms
in all its darkened glory
ignorance has paid the price for its flaws
and its own short story
the taint of not knowing where
or why we form in this sphere
the questions that run through our lives
the reasons for our cosmic insurrection
why not?
who claims dominion over our souls
God
and the mighty Universe
sunless and soulless we would be
were it not for these entities
battling eternity for our very lives
for the thoughts that make us
for the words that shape us
a circle imperfect
in the black moondust of our eyes
and the reason for this world
the desperate fight for purpose
providence
is just what we’ve always known
all that we could ever own
ourselves
our selfish lonely selves
the angels with their digital wings
shake hands with demons
and their surrealist rings
all that we are
is all that we’ll ever be
and all that i am
is all that you’ll ever see
