Timbuktu

Timmy and I were drinking all night
When we came across three girls under a street light
They invited us over, and off we went
Timmy and I were totally spent
But, they were three
And, we were two
So I buk one, and Timbuktu

wade.

engulf yourself in alcohol,
as we let the acrimony consume us all
and follow me into the flames
in preparation for this life to fade
we’ll wade through the river styx,
and yet the deity is out of mind
we can float on burnt crucifix,
false hopes and dreams,
they will burn as well
but happily passing with a smile
the time will come,
and we’ll love this hell

the Phantom

Dead by dawn
as dusk leaves horizon
lost in deception
but death never finds him
a phantom in the night
his path has subsided
no reasons at all like
rising tides or passing time and
he will need some protection
for the angels have gone
left him alone, now
the reaping’s begun
a phantom in the night
returns out of habit
fueled with rage, hide
your soul or he’ll grab it
failing to listen, oh how
he loves that decision
he’ll find death by dawn
with the immortal precision
so as dusk leaves horizon
there ends the inception
a long dark night, the
phantom happened to find him

You Can’t Win

You can’t win
You just can’t win,
no matter what you do
Jack Black said it once, he had a clue
How can you win if you’re always gonna lose?
its the why life goes you have to understand
there’s gigantic mountains, there’s deep quick sand
but don’t fight, or you’ll only make it worse
you must learn to let go of that purse
the person stealing it probably needs it more anyway
but hey,
at least you’re still alive, so why complain?
because of how you lost instead of gained?
you have to remember that you just can’t win
Once you do, your life will begin

Faked Out and Fooled

Thoughts twisted and mind numb
Am I too smart?
Or am I too dumb?

Running on the track loosing your pace
The inside lanes the shortest
but your still falling behind in the race
Ya feel like giving up?
Pourin the wine to the top of your cup
and savin the energy for another day
But question the efforts
Where your intentions true?
Or did you try to be nimble?
Did you try to be slick?
But you fell face first over the candlestick
And landed in between the dragon and his wrath
Following in the footsteps of societies path
This wholesale realization might bring you down
Or make your heart pound
But what do we do when these thoughts come around?
Do we face it?
Or do we fold?
Do we ask the dealer for another hit?
Or do we hold?
Because at Adam and Eves table
Three aces stare you in the face
And you remember the day you fell behind in the race
Throw your cards down in the midst of the rush
But the guy sitting next to you got dealt a royal flush
You were faked out and fooled
By the expectation
You were faked out and fooled
By the temptation
You were faked out and fooled
By the sensation
You were faked out fooled
Through the combination

Your thoughts become twisted and your mind goes numb
You’re left there thinking
Am I too smart?
Or am i too dumb?
