Company

The company of strangers
where we do what’s unaccepted to do.
when were left uncomfortable and wondering
who was once who?
as there is no feeling more comfortable
than that company of strangers
as the time passes on
this life becomes a little stranger.
but what was understood?
because we’ll never understand
unacceptable, unwanted, or unhinged at the hand
no matter how great the pain
there is no company,
like the company of the strange

Lube Your Manners

It’s been awhile since I posted some of my thoughts on this shitty, fucking
D grade website. Sadly, I have been so busy, there have not really been any good opportunities for me to share what has been on my mind recently and it has been a serious bother. If you want the complete truth, I spent a little too much time inside of the bottle over the past couple months, and while I spent that time surrounded in a liquid haze of spirits, there was unfortunately little writing to be done in my mind.

Theory Dreams

the theory of a daydream,
I hold dear with my cigarettes,
the theory that held me down.
like the forgotten king said,
as I watch a cloud of smoke rise into nothing,
I realized what it’s all worth,
it’s all worth just about nothing.
here and gone or perhaps
there and back again,
what does it matter?
Just take the moment and begin to pretend
that we can buy our virtue at the door
but never forget,
the piper won’t refund the price
and the time,
oh it will forever be changing
while we can’t get our change from time.
there is always tomorrow I heard someone once say
until one day the theory never fades,
though another day it might
forever doesn’t exist
so hold those cigarettes tight

Can we find us a place for their heads
just remember it can’t go left unsaid
and don’t change your feet
just to change your life
upset with what you’ll find
another Sunday behind

What can I say?
It’s time to follow the road
but where were going,
it’s now we go alone
so accepting whats gone
brings us all to go on
leave the days in vain
the ones that kept us blind
another Sunday behind

and reality
is not so far away
despite the broken memories of our yesterdays
So don’t lose your faith
just set the pace
and give this life a try
another Sunday behind

there’s more to it all
at least that’s what I heard
So we’ll watch the birds
fly over the sea
in the place for our heads
the one we dared to hide
leaving Sunday behind

Lost.

Diamond eyes, I just couldn’t seem to find
but to run away means never having to hide
will they come and will they follow
or will they stay and fail to thrive
I can show you the way,
I won’t promise you that
don’t trust me though,
It seems I’ve misplaced my hat
A rebellion or a leader,
what’s your take on necessity?
this ride’s been a doozy,
but will the lord hear my plea
I guess not for now,
so let’s just wait and see

Enough

It’s funny enough
that yesterday is gone,
because the past is the past
and today was tomorrow
so you can cut ties and relax
but, oddly enough
there is an end to this line
and sadly enough,
we’re all running out of time
oh the days of our lives
lost but never forgotten
for when it is time to go
accept this life,
was just time borrowed
at least it was funny enough

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
