PLEASE KEEP IN MIND

PLEASE KEEP I MIND  THAT IM A SIX YEAR OLD GIRL
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND MOMMY THAT U LET HIM INTO MY WORLD
HIS FINGERS VIOLATED ME...  
HIS BREATH HAUNTED ME...
CRAWLING TO MY BED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
I LET HIM TOUCH ME WITHOUT A FIGHT
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND I HAD A TWIN AND A BABY SIS TWO YEARS YOUNGER
MAYBE IF I LET HIM IT WILL CEASE HIS HUNGER
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT IM A SIX YEAR OLD GIRL
WHERE WERE U DADDY
DOING DRUGS WITH FRIENDS IN THE CADDY
SCREAMING INSIDE HELP ME DADDY
HELP ME MOMMY
BUT U DONT SEE WHAT HE'S DOING TO ME
HE STOLE MY HONOR AND INNOCENCE
AND TODAY I HAVE JOB TO CONVINCE
THAT WHAT HAPPEND WHEN I WAS SIX
WAS HIS FAULT NOT MINE
MOMMY DID U NOT SEE THE BLOOD IN MY KNICKS
IT WAS THERE ALL THE TIME
AND IN MY MIND I WAS HOPING
THAT MY TWO SISTERS WERE COPING  
AS I WAS DROWNING
IN THE SALIVA OF A SICK PERVERT
NOW I WAS THE DIRT
KEEP IN MIND I WAS SIX BUT U SAY I WAS THE FLIRT
HE WAS SUPPOSE TO PROTECT ME
U WERENT SUPPOSE TO NEGLECT ME
KEEP IN MIND I WAS SIX TRYNG TO BE A MOM OF TWO
U SAY HE DIED
THEN U SAY I LIED
HIS DEATH WILL NEVER BRING ME JUSTICE
WHAT HE DID TO ME WAS LUSTROUS
AND IM NO GOD SO DONT EXPECT ANY MERCY
I HOPE UR PAIN WAS AS BAD AS MINE
SMILING AT ME ALL THE TIME  
I HOPE U CHOKED IN UR BLOOD
FOR ALL THE TIMES THAT U RUBBED
UR DICK AT MY EXPENSE
KARMA IS A BITCH BABY AND SHE TOOK REVENGE
 
PS: I HOPE THE DEVIL RAPES U ON THE DAILY

No Excuses

The pellet hit your breast
and took my breath,
my mind followed a rising panic
of realisation, I had taken a life.

I had laid the breadcrumbs,
hid behind the garden wall
waited in silence as you landed,
lined the sight, squeezed the trigger
it was all my responsibility.

Your body was still warm
as I tried to revive you
soft like you were filled with water.
The colour of your beak
the clarity of your eyes
the perfect design of your feathers
all wasted by me.
I buried you in the garden
and made promises
I have kept.

The following year I saved
a fledgling thrush
from the mouth of a cat,
raised it on worms,
set it free when the weather
turned warm,
gave it back your life.

He only visited the garden
a few times,
but I kept looking.
Maybe he made new friends
or maybe the other birds told him
what I was really like.

I Learned To Paint

At seventeen my hand was raised  
In oath to paper  
I was taken to an assembly line
I was taught to stand, wait
I learned to paint  
 
At eighteen i was sat in a corner  
Of a room without end
The wall, soft to the touch
Cathartic
My own stretch of a greater canvas  
 
At Twenty four I took a step back
To see my contribution
For the first time
I finally looked across the wall  
To see a beast covered in blood  
 
Marking its tracks were names  
Many I had almost forgotten
Most I had never seen
More than I could count  
Dissapearing as soon as they came  
 
I raised my hand again
As their names took shape  
Carving it with a permanent stain
I dropped my brush in the other
Shaking  
 
I just wanted to paint

So LongÖ.

timeless rhythms shift
again in the daily grind
youíre in tune with the
molecules of nature
I hope as you take another
breath and find
youíre able to define
the nomenclature

Iíd give up all my
tomorrows once again
to remember one more
yesterday with you
a still lake reflects the
midnight moonís champagne
and ripples from the
stone of regret I threw

in this veil of mist I
stand kissing the rain
at the end of an
invisible rainbow
time flickers like a light
from a passing train
casts a shadow on the
smile you would bestow

lingering scent of your
hair as black as night
to opened eyes a deep
rolling ocean blue
the whispered words the
ache of shivers recite
remain caressed by a
silence rendered true

I canít calculate the
price of confession
reflected on the walls
of an empty room
dim pastel shades of
a lasting impression
your absence now
echoes a familiar tune

Iím sure I can see you
off in the distance
but my faltering steps
donít bring you closer
with darkness comes the
descent of resistance
and Iím left with the cold
shades of October

Reget is a feeling you often get
when you dont wipe after a shet

tell me I'm wrong
Dont tell me I'm right
I want you in my bed to-nite

That sex was fulfilling
for my dong ding
it's not a doorbell
It's a heart string

I'm out on a fling
my heart does sing
Driving around showing the bling
I buy her a ring
She says" Are U crazie?"
Take it back and give me the money
honey

Regret

 
I drove into the city to visit my son,
Those visits had become precious and few,
And all day long I had it in the back of my mindÖ
I wanted to tell him, letís go visit grandpa too.
 
As the day wore on driving around town,
The hours just seemed to fly by,
I could have picked up the phone,
Even it if it was just say hi.
 
Looking back at that Saturday,
I could have made the effort to see my father,
It had been months since I saw him,
And for some reason I didnít even botherÖ
 
I donít know why I didnít try,
Iím sure how I could have been so careless,
I knew he was sick all that time,
Still drinking I knew he was helpless.
 
Five days later when my phone rang,
I knew it in my heart before I heard the news,
In hindsight, I should have known better,
Now I carry a guilt Iíve been trying to reduce.
 
I should have listened to my instinct,  
Itís the gut feeling Iíll never forget,
I should have had a better intuition,
Not making that call is the thing Iíll always regret.

R AND R FAUX MEMORIES

Welcome to another fresh new edition of  
the regrets radio show made especially
for Dream Hunters, Bleak Freaks, Serious
Records Collectors and Enthusiasts across
the emotional rollacoaster of melancholic
memerable moments and special occasions a  
pre-historic anthorboric procrastination.  
 
DJ-Preists and general Muso Mentalists are  
here crafting the show with love and longing,
fear and loathing made by wishful w-nkers for  
whistful wanderers to look, listen or remember.
Made by unrequited lovers heartbreak and aiming
to serve a stiff two fingers to the nasty  
conscience police.  
 
This is all the fun of the fair (and un-) as  
recorded by chemical subconscious via: past  
drama, 'new' self-historical scenarios and a deep  
impediment to account, in acuracy, situational  
encounterisms and delusions of persecutory predicuments
in passive agressing, self-destructive tune as  
in hindsight - an habitual hindrence -  
in the immediate time, a blessing.  
 
Here we are heading down to Condemnation Street
for a bit of auld aural contradictive contraband,
and car boot soul searching from the 'heart' or
is it all in the head? Bric a Brac Bad-taste acculades
custom crafted by you with ridcule in mind. From the  
finest purveyors of predjudice and irrational  
excellence - go back in the mix to continue tripping
the rejectional fandango.  
 
Don't hesitate to wait as another heafty slice of  
exstensive eccentric melange is served, chopped  
and sliced with lashings of grim goodness.  
Treating as nostaligia coated medicine for the
spiritually debauched. We aim to provide an  
alternative to the hum drum of normal / corporate  
contentment, chocked full of oddities, rarities  
and a few classic joy and happiness killers..  
 
...along with a whole heap of preconceptions  
probably featuring the best future regrets that  
you have yet to forumulate. Welcome to my world!
 
Thank you for tuning in to  
Regrets Radio FM.

Alienation

Heading along this dreary road
carrying with me this heavy load,
no space for a needed u-turn
just days filled with time to burn.

Different day, same old way
clothed and fed, but now brain-dead.

Been on this road for many years
no emotion left for any tears,
Now I know how the hamster feels
forever turning those weary wheels.

Different day, same old way
clothed and fed, but now brain-dead.

There was a time, another way
but life just got in my way.
work, work, work
got to work to earn that pay.

Different day, same old way
clothed and fed, but now brain-dead.

Opportunities missed
Chances pissed,
there was a time, another way
but life just got in my way.

The me
that might have been,
died long ago
when I was green.

I should have listened
to my heart,
I see that now
too late to start.

Courage

Courage comes in many ways
some we see,
others hide, they steal our days.

A fight
a challenge
a tree to climb,
just be brave
take your time.

But threats appear
in subtle ways,
we do not see
their form for days,
years go by
we cannot see,
how much we lost
no longer free.

Should have walked away
not stay,
in situations
that make us pay,
in lives we lost
along the way.

Move on
we feel our heart to say,
but fear gets
in our way,
the devil we know
he makes us stay.

We'll never know
the lives we lost,
had we the courage
to leave the nest,
to take a risk to do what's right,
when we had the chance
to put it right.

Instead we chose
the easy option,
stick around and play it safe
needed comfort,
not escape.

But do not be too hard
on yourself for too long,
in the end
it's not our fault,
we needed somewhere to belong.

Numb

This world, I canít keep up
The only word: shut the fuck up
it makes me tired, Iím fed up
fakes all me, better locking me up

one expectation is anotherís pain
keep going let all the bliss go in vain
the moment everythingís done seems insane
the you wish for an Angel from the astral plane

I canít be what you want me to be
faithless, Iíll be lost in the rough seas
thereís nothing you can expect of me
canít walk in your shoes, so let me be, please!!

holding on tight, you want control
freedomís right, yet its not to be told
want me to fight, only with my soul
but itís fear and flight, the body takes a toll!

canít you see i am numb,
Iíll ignore the hums and drums
take it from me, you canít feel the way I feel, so here it comes!

you want to be like the rest of you,
singing, dancing and prancing
watch me fall apart right in front of you, trying, crying and dying!!

This world is faithless
the people so clueless
it makes me so helpless
ignorance, nevertheless!

The world apart is falling
no, itís not nature calling
it is the thorn thatís within
losing control, the fading begins

Life it seems to fade away
drifting further every day
getting lost within my true self
nothing matters thereís no one else
