God & a Little Black Dog

 
The man on the bus
told us
God must've got tired
of being everywhere at once
until things turned so bad
he wound up being nowhere at all

That's why so much
evil
was happening in the world
Maybe God
was too old for the job
He ought to step aside
let someone younger take over
before these end times
got too far out of hand

We needed someone
a hundred per cent reliable
the man said
a whizz kid go-getter
to take on the Devil
vanquish his minions
and finish what God began

Who
we asked
In the entire history of the universe
was there anyone or anything
so perfectly enthusiastic
about his job
But all we could come up with
was a little black dog
with a stick in his mouth
a little black dog
called Death

[KILLER ROBOTS]

oppressing doom
operating rooms
killer robots
digging tombs
cumin home
in her womb
off in the distance
impending doom
slipping off this ride
worlds collide
no place to hide
sheís in my heart
deep inside
the surgeon's knife
my suicidal cry's
Valkyries guide me
thru the night
into the light
feeling hazy
feeling crazy
unforsaken
undertaken
reality's gone
on vacation
senility
state of the nation
destruction
is creation
liberation
and celebration
lobotomy
and sodomy
killer economy
arselings
you gotta be
after the knife
baby
come to me
Iím waiting here
on the other side
of paradise
in the dark
of the night
our
worlds collide
in a pool of blood
direlegioncide
You can not kill me
death fears me
way back to her
garden Iím Eden
and my motherfuckiní
induction into
the crux of creation
in my
goddamn
suicide nation
insecticidal
damnation
fucking hell
I need my girl
sheís the crux of this
alien invasion
into our persuasions
our fornication's
no fuckiní hesitation
came here
to fuck the world
killer surgical robots
on my tail
on the run
chasiní
the setting sun
into
oblivion
Yeah

the unforgivin'
a dead man walking
out to the gallows
outta the shadows
as my soul is risen
outta this prison
I will begin again
avoiding the light
that shines
in my eyes
in death's corridor
oh magic Christian
Your fuckiní religions
is making me dyin'
and I realize
in my own submission
to my own suicide
and baby I donít care anymore
If I live or die fore

of heavens door
I am no more
in this solar system
deep in the crimson
haviní this vision
forever more
and baby escaping

forever forlorn
Into the mystic

before the hoe universe
was ever born
so baby I go there

forever more
forever torn
forever forlorn
into the mystic

for breaking my stones
forever more
forever torn
forever forlorn
into the mystic
I am reborn
Yeah

[ENTERING THE GATES OF VALHALLA]

k
You
let me explain
my pre radical surgery
as I marinate in my rage
in my rhyme and reasons
at the end of my seasons
as Iíve always been
running towards my own death
fucking savage and ruthless
fucking dying to kill death
fucking Lord God Dire Legion
I only want you in my heaven
If youíre a psychopathic demon
let Jesus have the candy asses
on my pale horse I will soar
because destruction is the creator
like the god and devil
and the good and evil
has run full circle
Iím divine and eternal
gotta piece of God in me
as a fucking Mayan
and my Viking
go wild
entering
the gates of Valhalla
and if this pre radical surgery
donít kill me
I will still be
disgusting
next week
Yeah

(chorus x3) .. female angels singing chant
k
I brought you to this place
is just to
defecate in your face
so eating shit and dying
is your only saving grace
running towards my own death
fucking savage and ruthless
fucking dying to kill death
entering the gates of Valhalla
I am hearing Odin calling
Yeah

pavor nocturnus (Sleep terror)

Mind entrapped  
by demons unknown,  
slowly forcing themselves,  
deep, into the soul.  
 
Trashing life's conforts
against the wall;
pushing away those  
who make your house a home.  
 
Feeling alone amongst the crowds,  
searching endlessly for something  
you've never owned;
heat and chills inside your bones.  
 
Restless days, sleepless nights,  
violated, abused by terrific frights.
Confusing thoughts, searching games  
of unnecessary people with no name.  
 
You hurt inside as you lash out
to those that love you without doubt.  
Searching pleasures to end pain,  
you walk through mist in endless shame.
 
Searching for confort in a bottle.  
As you pour more venom  
you feel more hurdle.  
The lid is cracked, death is normal.
 
Silent screams from within you cry,  
constantly hoping that you will die.  
No hopes to spare inside your mind;
you don't care of those left behind.
 
And, as your days turn into nights,
shadows return to give you frights.  
Time goes by as you run away;
the years of tomorrow are gone today.

Death Is A Pedophile

Death
Tip toes
Like a pedophile

Creeping
Dangerous
With dark intent

Smells
Broken souls
Like sweet perfume

Evil seducer
With
An icy touch

The innocents
Are such
Easy prey

Tastes fear
In that
Last breath

Thrill of not knowing  


It's like that one sparrow
has to fly up
past the gulls, and the hawks

to where the thin air
won't fill its lungs, hold its wings
or keep deep sleep
from its head

just to see

if it wakes
before it hits the ground

Katie

i am broken in the right places now
hollowed
and light as wind,
and all my memories swirled
and all my words
and all my wordless thoughts
and secret wishes
and him gone on
and her gone
and all my days gone, too
and one still wonders why
you would bring me here
and coddle me
and call me sweet girl
just to set me loose
when we all know how it ends

In Between

Stood there
between the relative and the absolute
feeling time was running out
yet knowing
time never ends
just runs clockwise in circles.

The waiter arrived
unfolding a table and a chair
"Your table, sir!
Are you here for the baptism or the funeral?"

"What's today's special?"

"Tea, sir!
What is your pleasure?" said the waiter
and his breath caused an atmospheric chemical reaction
effecting the fall of the season's first snow flakes
"Terribly sorry, sir, I didn't mean to..."

"Nonsense!", he cut him off
"Time and gravity come together...
Is it a girl's baptism?"

"Yes, it is, sir! And so is the funeral!"

"Could you please bring me the tea
and let both know I was never here?..."

Wasted life

  † † †When I die it'll be an o.d
Sit down & listen to this story of me
I steal from the rich & take from the poor
Robin with a Hood, gett high some more
Not to be mistaken or misunderstood
I'm all bad there's is no good
Don't do what I should & break the law
Drugs took my family, I've lost it all
Have no answer or any reason why
I'm so sick, I'll even get my sponsor high
I have no morals & don't live by a code
I'm a ticking time bomb ready to explode
If you see me around, I'd cross the street
Because I will Lie, steal, kill & cheat
It's not about money, I can have plenty
What I have there isn't a remedy
I'm just a low down dirty thief
that doesn't feel sorry, I have no grief
So with whatever time, that I have left
I'm going to stay high, til my last breath
These may very well be,last words I write
All I'll ever be is just a wasted life

Kobe Bryant Died twice that day

Can you even imagine how difficult it was for him in that moment? The moment he knew that not only his own life was about to end, but that of his daughter...a life he helped create.

Can you imagine how he felt as a father knowing he couldn't protect her?

Can you imagine him holding her, consoling her, telling her he loved her as that helicopter went down?

As a parent, I can tell you, Kobe Bryant's greatest fear was realized today. And it wasn't the fear for his own life, but for that of his beautiful daughter.

Because as a parent, your life means nothing in comparison to the lives of your children.

We live for our children. We breathe for our children. They are our reason for being.

We would also die for them, without hesitation.

Without question, without a moments notice, we would lay down our own lives to ensure theirs.

Just thinking of his internal struggle in those last moments tears my heart into pieces.

He knew his daughter's young life was ending. He knew he was leaving 3 other precious children behind. Oh, how his heart must have ached!

Can you even imagine the agony that played out in his mind? Every parents worst nightmare happening to him in real time.

He was there when his sweet girl took her first breath, and he was there with her when she took her last.

And that's the only solace I can find in this...that he was there. In her final moments, her daddy was there to remind her of his undying love.

And with everything in me, I hope that baby felt every ounce of love her daddy had for her. I hope it overwhelmed her, and carried her straight into paradise.

Because I know that's all her daddy wanted too.

Rest in peace Kobe and Gigi. Our hearts mourn you ❤

Hug your children extra tight tonight, mamas and daddies. Tomorrow is never promised.

Watching my blood
pouring down
the drain
Feeling calm
in this world
of pain
Trying to see
what lays behind the door
Feeling Free
no pain
no more
Looking back
on the life I've lived
Feeling sad
for the ones I leave
But I can't stand
the things that I see
this crazy world
is not
for me

I watch my blood
Slowly drip down the drain
seeing things
I can't explain
becoming one
with the spiritual stream
taking me to
Where I've never been
As my eyes
grow a silent tear
that gently falls
upon my lips
Time to go
No more fear

MY QUEEN

   
{Life is hard to understand † †
After you lose that special loved one † †  
What was two is now one, that is still at a stand † †  
One is a lonely number now that they're gone} † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"You were my morning and night"... † †  
† † †
Cherished seeing your smile before I'd go to work † †  
My breakfast you always made perfectly right † †  
And how you spoiled me feeding me with a fork... † †  
† † †
†Haha... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
Your calls and messages to say I love you... † †  
† † †
Would make my day spectacular boo † †  
With hearts and smiles, I painted in my mind † †  
Precious moments that are now left behind... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"Promises we made"... † †  
† † †
After making love in our throne bed we'd laid † †  
Still fulfills me to this day † †  
And how you begged me to stay... † †  
† † †
"Baby no one could ever make me feel the same way!!!"... † †  
† † †
"THAT IS TRUE, I SAY!!!"
† †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"Birthdays and Anniversaries"... † †  
† † †
We'd make our own paradise † †  
At home, we preferred to make our own sanctuaries † †  
Roses and wine was all needed to your eyes † †  
In a passion and affection what it truly signifies... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
--Never was a day I would never miss † †  
The huge hugs and your romantic kiss--
† †  
† † †
Mmmmm... † †  
† † †
The flavor of your silky lips † †  
Resting my arms on your beautiful curvy hips. † †  
How you adored as I brought you tulips... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"I always raged mad"... † †  
† † †
To see you so sad... † †  
† † †
Massaging your gloom and more I wish I had † †  
But when we had an argument fight † † †
I found it super sexy, dynamite... † †  
I turn off the light † †  
Relaxing you to making it again all right... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"I remember your last seen"... † †  
† † †
How it was like only yesterday † †  
(tears slides down) † †  
When making sure our laundry was clean † †  
Always taking care of our things every day... † †  
† † †
--Now that was love... † †  
My queen dove--...
† †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† †  
"In bad times how we'd cry together"... † †  
† †  
I'd make sure you were always feeling better † †  
Now I cry alone † † †
On my own † †  
† † †
"Why are you gone?!!" † †  
† † †
These sorrowful tears now shown † †  
That I must endure as each day goes on... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"You were my everything"... † †  
† † †
Still are from the moment of a wedding ring † †  
that I now wear in your memory † †  
It shatters me desperately † †  
This is so painfully tough for me... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"How all you do--to me mean"... † †  
† †  
The bedroom is the same way as you left it † †  
I now see you in only a dream † †  
As I lay in our love bed and I coldly sit † †  
A cold spot feeling where you always been... † †  
I know it's you as I don't mind your visit... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"Time is so dreadfully still"... † †  
† † †
So dull without your warm feel † †  
Inside I feel like myself I just want to kill † †  
† † †
"But I remember"... † †  
† † †
--"How you never liked that dark deal"-- † †  
† † †
You said... † †  
† † †
"Life is beautiful"... † †  
† † †
In rough roads challenger † †  
Different paths that will take you † †  
as we live life longer... † †  
Never let it hit you like a timber † †  
† † †
"WITH GOD EVERYTHING WILL CONQUER"... † †  
"LOVE AND FAITH MAINTAINS STRONGER"...
† †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"Your touching words I can never forget"... † †  
† † †
Drifting away in a coffin that's ready and set... † †  
† † †
"Oh, baby"... † †  
† † †
"I'm deeply sorry"...
† †  
† † †
How I wish it was instead me... † †  
Here's my love in a rose...for you... † †  
† † †
"A rose for you"... † †  
† † †
"I'm so lost"... † †  
† † †
"Without you"...
† †  
† † †
My heart is broken and blue... † †  
In a deep respect † †  
My sad farewell... † †  
† † †
"Will I ever see you again"??? † †  
† † †
My wife, lover and best friend... † †  
† † †
"Only time will tell"... † †  
† † †
But yet... † †  
† † †
"This is very hard to accept"...
† †  
† † †
† †  
"LORD PLEASE"!!! † † †
† † †
"HELP ME TO COMPREHEND!!!" † †  
† † †
"WHY IT HAS TO BE THE END???"† †  
† † †
"CALM MY GRIEF WITH YOUR ANGELIC ANGEL"† †  
† † †
"PLEASE MERCIFULLY SEND!!!"..... † †  
† † †
† †  
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"Without you is like not having a heart"... † †  
† †  
I'm truly trying to move on † †  
† † †
"But its too hard!!!" † †  
† † †
How will I overcome??? † †  
Hearing our favorite love song... † †  
🎶"Till death do us part"🎶 † †  
† † †
† †  
BUT IN THE MEANTIME... † †  
† † †
† †  
I PROFOUNDLY REFLECT... † †  
† † †
DEATH IS NOT A CRIME... † †  
† † †
OR IS IT FOREVER GOODBYE... † †  
† † †
† † †
IT'LL TAKE TIME † †  
FOR ME, MYSELF AND I... † †  
BUT NOT TO FAIL AS I'll STOP BY † † †
AND VISIT YOUR RESTING AND SAY HI... † †  
† † †
IT WON'T BE EASY... † †  
† † †
BUT SWEETHEART THAT I'll DO † † †
'TILL THE DAY I THEN HAVE TO ALSO DIE"... †  
† † †
I LOVE YOU... † †  
† † †
AND FOREVER MY PEACHY... † †  
† † †
"PATIENCE IS THE KEY"... † †  
† † †
† †  
"I KNOW, I KNOW"... † †  
† † †
† † †
THE TRUTH IS... † †  
† † †
WHAT GOD'S PLANS HE STILL HAS PREPARED FOR ME... † †  
FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE... † †  
WHAT I STILL MUST EXPECT... † †  
AND MEMORIES OF YOU IS ALL I GOT LEFT... † †  
† † †
† †  
"I KNOW, I KNOW"... † †  
† † †
† †  
"IT'LL BE AN ULTIMATE STRIFE"... † †  
† † †
BUT BEFORE I GO... † †  
† † †
SO I'll SAY IT LIKE THIS... † †  
† † †
MY BOO... † †  
† † †
MY QUEEN... † †  
† † †
"FOR YOU... FOR YOU... FOR YOU!!!" † †  
† † †
I KNOW IT'LL BE A LONG JOURNEY WHILE... † †  
† † †
† †  
BUT I PROMISE YOU THAT... † † †
† † †
† †  
"I'll IN YOUR HONOR CONTINUE TO SMILE"...
