This Is My Blues

Workin’ as a young one, during da cotton pickin’ days.      
Tuning my ears into, my older siblings, gospel ways.          
Smokin’ a whole lotta dope, got me to here.          
Drinking from early mornings on, got me to there.          
Playing some slow guitar chords, gave me the blues.          
Sleeping at night, always awakening, to more bad news.          
          
This is my blues.          
Purely undiluted.          
Then distilled on down.          
To its true purity.          
         
I got a kind hearted women, no imitation          
Who will not let me be, until one dies          
As she pulled up to the cotton plantation          
I looked at her, straight in the eyes          
Spoke to her, with her full attention          
I’m outta here, anything else, I forgot to mention?          
         
This is my blues.          
Purely undiluted.          
Then distilled on down.          
To its true purity.          
         
Isn’t it at all, a bit sort of creepy.          
Returning home, to da back swamps of Mississippi          
The last song I had ever written.          
Would be the death of me, once bitten       
Now ain’t that a bit haunting.          
I should’ve just read, the dire warning.          
         
This is my blues.          
Purely undiluted.          
Then distilled on down.          
To its true purity.

Color Within The Blues

Born with prejudice, throw it all about      
By extracting color within the blues          
You’d all still enjoy it, no doubt          
Without any clues, you got nothin’ to lose          
The colors of blue, were made to be taken out          
Now listen again, with newborn ears          
Remember, you’d let dirt, get in and about          
Baby face baby face without any fears.          
          
Tired of racism, going on and about          
By liberating, we strike new tunes          
You’d all still enjoy it, no doubt          
Without any clues, you got nothin’ to lose          
The colors of blue, were made to be taken out          
Now listen again, with newborn ears          
Remember, you’d let dirt, get in and about          
Baby face baby face without any fears.          
         
All of society, from near to far about          
To all city slickers, outback folks or hippie communes          
You’d all still enjoy it, no doubt          
Without any clues, you got nothin’ to lose          
The colors of blue, were made to be taken out          
Now listen again, with newborn ears          
Remember, you’d let dirt, get in and about          
Baby face baby face without any fears.

Seven To Eleven

Texas Blues is music, ending with a period    
You can’t go read out of a book, and be superior
Nothing you go take a bite out of, and eat it    
It’s something that is just there, real like legit    
   
Playing sets, from seven to eleven    
Crowds roll in, think their in heaven    
Start with some slow riffs, like your first lesson    
Then unwind my weapon, to close out the session    
   
It’s something you grew up with, just there    
I don’t know if it’s the dirt, water or the air    
But hope to god, it’s a bit of all of them, hey son    
By the way, moving to the West Coast, to see what’s on    
   
Playing sets, from seven to eleven    
Crowds roll in, think their in heaven    
Start with some slow riffs, like your first lesson    
Then unwind my weapon, to close out the session    
   
King Albert Collins, either deny or release the freeman    
Hell! He ain’t forgot what he knew, for any reason    
Freed de king, over and over and over    
Texas Blues is a feeling moreover    
   
Playing sets, from seven to eleven    
Crowds roll in, think their in heaven    
Start with some slow riffs, like your first lesson    
Then unwind my weapon, to close out the session    
   
Something, I’m glad I know a little about    
But not as much as I should, no doubt    
Into both winter rain and summer shine    
The two journeys of hope and land of Crime.

Texas Blues  

Some blues make you wander    
And some blues make you stall    
And the some that play for you      
Don't do anything at all      
Go see Stevie      
Whenever it’s Texas Blues y’all      
     
And if anything falls apart      
And you feel like lying down      
Tell 'em an ole southern claw-picker      
Just made the call      
Tell Stevie      
When you hit the wall      
     
When the gals on the dance boards      
Step up and tell you what to do      
And you've just had a kind of realisation      
And your feet are shuffling slow      
Go see Stevie      
I think he’ll show      
     
When body and coordination      
Half fallen floppy head      
And the afro waiter is singing backwards      
And the queer nun is off to her bed      
Remember what the commentator said      
Feel your heart      
Feel your heart.

Cold lies the Epoch

Shadows of mine
brought from thine eyes
we wait on sands
of temples pyre
waste the light
of all mans time
bring the emptiness
flow and tide

saviors gone no will no lies
just the bathe for Abbaddon
bleed out for misery
cut the tie
no guiding light
just fire inside

seventh circle surrounds
we dine, we cry
the feast the fight
smothering life
fed by carcass
an epoch over
just demise
crawling darkness
eons die

saviors gone no will no lies
just the bathe
for Abbaddon
bleed out for misery
cut the tie
no guiding light
just fire inside

we rape the stars
snuff out the sun
suck out the marrow
leave it
all undone
we are the knife
to your whole thread
the will of man
stiff and dead

saviors gone no will no lies
just the bathe for Abbaddon
bleed out for misery
cut the tie
no guiding light
just fire inside



Based on a Cradle OF Filth song***
