soft white and sterile
lying on a bed
my thoughts all i have
is this life or death
fear of cold instruments
in a surgeons hands
spilling out my insides
in this world of doubt
drug me invade me
wanting my soul
as the seconds tick away
just enough to manipulate me
anesthesia blinds it
a violent repercussion †
to implant the code
that starves salvation
warned and violated
by a different blueprint
will it kill existence
to be an alien strand
cordial in this approach
to instill comfort
only to...

There's something burning in this ghost town
Calvary ain't been seen since the centennial
Go now, round up the boys while I call for the rain
But you say 'it's a drill' so when they come, I'll probably look crazy
Dancing days have found me late but willing and naked
Prostrate over hot coals, awake and still waking
Breath lost, song sung, can't touch the earth, just adjacent
Light as a phoenix feather, burn, levitate me
If it's not the East or the West that's on fire
Hold your head down, pray yesterday, it's the sky
And all the water that's already...

EDELTRAUD 3: THE PSYCHOBITCH †==> DISMANTLING BIG TIME => THE AVENUE 3
ATHENS-PATISION AVENUE
WEDNESDAY NOON
4/3/2015
This song is one possible (but actual) sequel to the song quoted in italics.
The song quoted is a very popular rebetiko serenade of the 1930s which you can listen †here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2MynMibAAM (MINOR OF THE DOWN)
It is a pure love song with a brilliant bouzouki improvisation and not political by any stretch of the imagination. It serves me well though for a political sequel to it. The story is true and it happened...

Dillon, I've been thinking
of the nice things you said
& I know your tendency
to get stuck in your head
Self love is hard to find
if you're looking to someone else
the main part of the whole idea
is the first word of the phrase - self
If she doesn't love you
it doesn't mean you're not worthy of love
& if she doesn't want you
it just means that she wasn't the one
& if she doesn't love you
you should probably just move on
Dillon, you've been trying
but I do not...

VERSE 1
What if I told you
I wanted to die?
That I'm tired of living,
of being alive.
VERSE 2
What if I said
it gets worse at night?
The thoughts get louder
and nothing is right.
CHORUS
The truth is,
you could slit my throat
and with one last gasping breath
I would apologize
for bleeding on your shirt
VERSE 3
What if I lied
and said everything was fine?
No, I'm not crying,
I swear I'm alright.
VERSE 4
What if I died?
I doubt you'd even cry.
Would you even care...

How does it feel?
To have a million thorns piercing your head?
How does it feel?
That crown has cut you up so much I'm surprised you're not dead.
How do you live?
With all the choices that you made haunting your dreams?
How do you live?
A better person would never forgive his own destructive deeds.
I'm glad I've never been the person who makes up all the rules,
Rules are made to be broken and when they do, †they'll come for you.
I'm glad I've never had to hide behind a crown of fear and might,
And never learn that sometimes it's...

My heart is with you,
My soul is in your hands
Itís a long, long journey across
Distant desert sands
But when I hold you in my mind,
You look straight, staring in my eyes
Thereís a reason Iím here with you, just this
One last time
Chorus:
We hold, we speak,
We walk the night along
We dress in all our fancy clothes,
A harmony in our sweet song
We drink, we laugh,
We feel the rhythm of
The bass drum band
Feel the gentle breeze
Moving through our hair
Open the window,
Let in the city air
When I...

As time goes on, I realize
With a cheerful heart,
Everywhere I go, My Every Friend, I take you with
In the day time, I see your face,
In the night, I hear your voice
Yes itís true, anytime,
my east and west, I take you with;
In a winterís night I feel your warmed caress, all through the frost and thunder;
The love is both deep and wide, filling the emptiness of a lonely sigh;
I feel a summer day, when I say your name;
your nameÖ your nameÖ
Yes it's true, these past few years, I have really...

DU Poetry : Song Lyrics Poems

Published on 1st March 2015 9:41pm
Written by CaityCat
Old problems, & new people
could lead to new solutions
have to be optimistic to try
without being disillusioned.
When he calls me beautiful
I forget all the reasons not to
All that can come to mind
is that I really want to
& I always do what I want
so that I don't have regrets
when it hurts & it does
I just don't forget
I always do what I want.
Cynicism & cinnamon
hard to say, harder to take
big talk's only inflated words
rolling around ready to break.
He talks more about mountains
how...

I feel all the mercy ive been carrying and more
The righteous the filthy come on take it all
There is no rescue helicopter at my door
God thou art there is a man with a red rose

One more step into the light and
I have come closer than i did before
One more day i rescue you now
Go to the tree and ask for more, interstellar, interstellar

Never did i imagine youd be going to jail
Your living a dream around you is a spell
Should i worry about the clothes i wear
If i misbehave she will look at me again

You don't even notice the lies in my words now
There was a time when it was just you and me
You could easily figure out
When i said i am okay but i really wasn't
Now it feels like you have moved so far away
Like i don't even know you anymore
And it kills me
Hurts like a knife through my chest
But i am gonna stay quite
Not gonna say a word about it
And just hope you'll come back
Because i am tired of looking like the weak one
And i am tired of chasing after you
You never seem to let me get close to you
Oh it hurts so bad

Ohhhh ohhhhh//
Take me to your maker//
Make me drink the blood from your shaker//
Ohhhh ohhhh//
Let me do all the talkin'//
Because baby//
I'm not walking//
Walking from this abyss called love//
Ohhh ohhh//
Do all you can with me//
But baby please don't hurt me//
Don't break me down and tear me up inside//
Ohhh baby//
Don't you run from me//
This complete ecstasy called love//
Take me down and rip me apart//
You have taken me to this dark abyss called love//

Ohh Ohh Ohh//
Baby ohh ohh//...

Sugar, why you taste so sweet?
Honey, why you looking at me?
Well if it isn't my good-for-nothing ex girlfriend
trying to reconnect with me?
Life's a gamble and I have been known to cheat
Well if you looking at me wrong,
I couldn't concentrate enough to sing my favorite song
As we look up at the stars all day long
Pretending they don't exist
Nothing could come of this
Nonsense I know it is
The taste is making me sick

The beat drops, and I lose myself
The bathroom is removed from the house, and I piss myself
Big white sharks that are actually blue keep concerning themselves in my business
A small dose of medication for a small celebration
And a small diet in modest moderation
Don't you don't you hate feeling tired around bedtime?
Don't ya-don't-don't ya hate the summer heat sweat in between your thighs?
Well lose yourself to the sound of the beat as it drops
Chew the green grapes to make up for all the purple ones you ate
And didn't feel them pop
Every little kid...

What happened to the world that I used to know
I used to love, used to flourish, and used to grow
What happened to saying "I love you bro" without people calling you gay
What happen to women not shaking their ass to be called beautifully made
What happened to us and the trust that we had for each other
What happened to these fathers, abandoning their sons and their daughters
What happen to intimacy that was shared between partners
first stronger than ever now fading, darker and darker
What happened to preachers guiding the flock not for the money
Seriously...

I know for certain that everyone cares
About all that nothing that comes from the air
Everything's worthless but nothing really is
You can tell from my photos that I do exist
And the sea churns and the grounds all look hot
So I forever roam beneath the waves
I see the wide skies, the valleys, the rivers all long
The cats and the spitters, the weak and the strong
Never I plan on swimming on up
Learning to hate and death from above
And the sea churns and the moon goes down
So I roam beneath the waves
Yes I roam beneath the waves...
