Michael Cimino

I don't make movies intellectually, I don't make movies to make a point, I make movies to tell stories about people.

Don't Tell Me About It

Don't tell me about it life can be unfair
The homeless and paupers have never been rare
In the refugee camps of the World millions of refugees
The victims of hunger and war and disease
Don't tell me about it I already know
That where weeds are abundant the grass does not grow
'Tis a near and impossible climb to success and renown
For those who are born and raised in the poor side of town
The landscape around us destroyed by men of greed
Those who worship money are not a rare breed
Where pollution is rife there is only decay
For the greed of the greedy we all have to pay
Don't tell me about it I already know
That the seed of a parsnip into a carrot doesn't grow.

Don't Tell Me About It I Already Know

Don't tell me about it I already know
That money on bushes and trees does not grow
Yet of it some do have far more than enough
Whilst millions of poor people are doing it tough.

The unequal distribution of wealth seems humanity's shame
For every millionaire hundreds without a penny to their name
Homeless and hungry on poverty street
They hardly would know of the taste of good meat.

So many of life's opportunities denied
Their circumstance of birth their future's for them decide
Of their lives of poverty of varying degrees
In the refugee camps millions of refugees.

Don't tell me about it I know all too well
That millions are living in their earthly hell
Money breeds inequality doesn't that seem unfair
It is a rat race in the big World out there.

Tell me

Tell me about summer, about full moons in winter

Tell me the time in a face of a clock that has stopped

Tell me about rain

And the way that it falls

Tell me about love and about nothing at all

Show me a world in the palm of your hand

Tell me you love me you hate me you need

Tell me you own me

You'll bleed me exceed me

Tell me you do,

When you don't understand

The way sorrow moves

In a shower of trees


Tell me about love what does it all mean?

A hand in a glove?

a leaf on a tree?

Is it as simple as simple as that?

A squiggle of lines

The streets on a map

Tell me you love me you hate me

Don't care

Walk away from me quickly as if I'm not there

For Iam invisible

As absent as air

Oh tell me please tell me


Nothing at all

Then I'll stop saying 'tell me'

'Will she go to the ball? '

Laura Dern

I like movies about longing and desperation, and dark and light things, stories about people struggling to raise children, and to have relationships and be intimate with each other.

I Don't Know

Well I can't take this any longer
well I can't be this anymore
well I'm not getting any stronger
I don't know how to feel this anymore

[Chorus]
well you can tell me what you want
after all that you've done for me
we can't make it all undone
can't you see that
I don't know what to think
and you can't tell me we're dreaming
I wish that I could just let this go
what I'm thinking
I don't know what I'm feeling
we just need space for breathing
I wish that I could just let this go
what I'm thinking but I don't know

It happen such a thousand times before
I'm up agianst a wall I can't ignore
I wish you didn't feel so good to hold
cause then it wouldn't be so hard to know

[chorus]

I wish I could tell you that everything
was gonna be alright
I just wanna love you so maybe I
can let this go

[chorus]

(Why Don't You) See The Show Again

They tell me, I'm the man of the hour.
--Champagne, all around
It's been so long since I've been alone?
Sometimes, it gets me down.
And you, You're pretty as a picture
And I don't even know your name
But I sure would like to meet you?
Why don't you see the show again.
I've been singin' these love songs forever
Sometimes the words don't make much sense
So I'm living it all through the music
Using last nights compliments
I've been playing for thousands of people
Sometimes, it just never ends.
But the look in your eyes feels so good to me
Why don't you see the show again.
God knows, there's not much I can say
I don't have time for love in my life
But if I ever thought, about changin' my mind
It might be with you, tonight.
I've been on the road, for so many weeks now
And I'm losin' track of time?
Tryin' to make ev'ryone happy
I wonder what's really mine.
And you, You're pretty as a picture
And I don't even know your name
But I sure would like to meet you?
Why don't you see the show again.

Don't worry it's all been planned

Change is brought about by erosion!
Look around, and you will all come to see.
Change is brought about by erosion!
Want something privatized that's easy.

Cut all funding till the wheels fall off…
And say here's what'll fix it; for not a lot.
You can even buy shares, but, here's the tipoff…
'We'll never invest; bonuses are our mascot'.
Even going greener makes them all richer
I've now a blue bin a brown and a black
And one for indoors and if I'm a lucky chap!
I can have a green one for only £20 a year.

Change is brought about by erosion!
My dear! Don't worry it's all been planned
Everything has a cycle that requires action!
'Just don't tell them, about the quicksand'.

See it's all happening again boom and bust
Whatever happened to prams with a little rust?
Were-all-in-it-together granddad be a good fellow
Take out your life savings spend that's the motto.

Freeze pay, cut pay, and cut family tax credits
We'll make them third class citizens obedient
They'll come begging with their empty wallets
Once more to the factory floor less flippant.

Just Don't Know

The way your smile makes me feel...
I must turn red, just don't know
Can't get your image out of my head...
I think about you way to much
Your attitude, sense of humor
Glass seems always half full
A kindness I can’t recall
Your eyes are soooo beautiful
But who am I, years different
For you, too many things left undone
Good by won’t be easy
I’ll always wonder if you know, just don't know

I just don't want to start.....

I just don't want to start.....


I just dont want to start
something I can't finish.
I just dont want to commit
then backout and give you a fit.
I just don't see how
I can begin to love you now.
I just can't find a way
to care for you everyday.
I just don't know
how to let my feelings show.
I'm just not sure about romance
I'm telling you now in adavance.
I just don't know what to do
I wish that I could be with you.
maybe in another time and another place
we'll meet each other face to face
perhaps i'll be able to love you then
you'll be my music and i'll be your lyric.

Don`t Join The Army!

Don`t want to go to a strange land and have my ding dong shot off by
a nutter with a towel wrapped round his head who sits in the back of
a Toyota pickup; don`t want to look like a billard ball with a body
who runs about and sings nowmybrainisdownthedrain.Hate to listen to
national anthems which sound as if they are composed by Arnold Schoenberg
and played by Miles Davis on speed; hate being told what to think and
who is right or wrong.And I really don`t need a name like Captain
Bombthemall-Beastly....

So to all politicians and generals...

Stuff your flag up the Khyber Pass, stop playing God and go home and read
Robert Browning in the garden - you`ll feel better too.

I Don't Want To Walk Without You

I don't want to walk without you , baby
Walk without my arm about you , baby
I thought the day you left me behind
I'd take a stroll and get you right off my mind
But now I find that
I don't want to walk without the sunshine
Why'd you have to turn off all that sunshine
Oh baby, please come back
Or you'll break my heart for me
Cause, I don't want to walk with out you
No siree
I don't want to walk with out you,baby
Walk with out my arm about you , baby
I though the day you left me behind
That I'd take a stroll and get you right off my mind
But now I find
That I don't want to walk with out the sunshine
Why'd you have to turn off all that sunshine
Oh baby, please come back
Or you'll break my heart for me
Cause I don't want to walk with out you
I don't want to walk with out you
No siree

If You Don't Love Me Anymore

if you do not love me anymore
do not write me a poem
like a code
that i have to crack
like i am a spy
in your movie
like i am an unknown
target
of your assassin

shoot me right
with my eyes wide open
no need
to tell me to
walk a little farther
and hit me at
my back with your
pretenses

the way you
talk like i am already
a stranger
in your house

the way you
treat me like
i were a child
with all my
mischief

the way you
cover your language
like i am
a fool who cannot
understand
what direct
candid
frank language is all about

if you don't really love me anymore
all you have to do
is tell me

and i will tell you too,
never had i ever loved you

never, never, never


just tell me,
because i can always tell you,

i also know
what you can do, i also know what to say
when you finally tell me

Why Don't You Get A Job

My friend's got a girlfriend
Man he hates that bitch
He tells me every day
He says "man I really gotta lose my chick
In the worst kind of way"
She sits on her ass
He works his hands to the bone
To give her money every payday
But she wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say
I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way, no way
Why don't you get a job
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
To keep her bill collectors at bay
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
Cause that girl's got expensive taste
I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way, no way
Why don't you get a job
Well I guess it ain't easy doing nothing at all
But hey man free rides just don't come along
every day
Let me tell you about my other friend now
My friend's got a boyfriend, man she hates that dick
She tells me every day
He wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say

The Way You Make Me Feel

The way you make me feel,

I never imagine we having long conversation,
The hours we spent I would never forsake or forget them.
Getting to know you as a person,
Is truly a blessing.
We started off as friends,
But for you I had greater feelings.

I like you for you,
Funny, Intelligent and I enjoyed hearing your view.
I have seen your worth,
A diamond hidden deep down in the earth.

Whenever you are around,
I find it easy to let my hair down.
You never judge me.
You always love me.

You always say I deserve better,
And honestly, I call you my Greatest Inspirator.
My Motto............
It stuck with me since primary school.
Nothing But the Best.
You are my best,
And the most dropp dead gorgeous person could never contest.

Now I know my love experience is minute,
Your smile, yours lips, your teeth look so cute.

Your words I would always remember You say:
'I hope what took place was not the result of its been a while'.

'I don't like you.......... I love you.'

'You on a pedestal,
You tell me the sky is green, I'll believe you.'

'Only way i'd horn u is if u had a clone! Doh leave me a-loan! '

'The reason we wear hats, is cause we seek shelter from Above! '

I wanted to be your first for everything.
But the time for that has gone,
What took place is already done.

You say I am your last.
And I agree with you.
The last is the one that matter,
So I render myself to you on a silver platter.

YOU ARE MY LAST,
AND IN MY HEART YOU ARE RIDDING FIRST CLASS! ! !

Your Mama Don't Dance

Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
But when evening comes around and it's time to
Hit the town
Where do you go - You gotta rock it
The old folks say that ya gotta end your date
By ten
But if you're out on a date don't you
Bring her home late cuz it's a sin
You know there's no excuse
You know you're gonna lose you never win
I'll say it again
And it's all because your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
When evenin' rolls around and it's time to
Hit the town
Where do you go - To rock it, rock it
(lead)
Everyone gather round let me tell you all
About it
You see I pulled into a drive-in and
I found a place to park
We hopped into the backseat where it's
Always nice and dark
I'm just about to move thinking to myself Mmm
Bret this is a breeze
Then there's a light in my eye and a guy says
Out of the car long hair
Oowee - You're coming with me
Said the local police
And it's all because your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
When evenin' rolls around and it's time to
Hit the town
Where do you go - Play me a little C.C.
(lead)
Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't
Rock and roll
They just ain't cool and they ain't about to start
Your mama don't dance and you daddy don't rock
Your mama don't dance, no
She just don't dance, no
You mama don't dance
And you daddy don't rock and roll, oww no

Bosses Don't Seem Right' - A Christmas Monologue

The thing's all wrong (I sez to ‘im)
Now look, there's this ‘ere Monday, Jim,
Comes before Christmas. Be a toff
An' lest us ‘ave the Monday off.
‘E ‘ums an' ‘ars. An' then he's got
To talk a lot of silly rot
Abut ‘ow business binds a man;
An' ‘e don't quite see ‘ow ‘e can
Afford to give me Monday in,
Seein' he'll lose a lot of tin
Under our capit'listic plan
Which sort of binds a business man
‘Lest his competitors was bound
To give the Monday all around.

If but (‘e sez) they would agree
To let the trade ‘ave Monday free
Then ‘e would do it. There you are!
Shows ‘ow Democracy's a bar.
It's competition, don't you see,
That robs a man of liberty.
But, under Socialism . . . Wot?
Now, listen, I ain't talkin' rot.
I know that ‘e's me boss. But look,
Our scheme of Gover'ment's all crook.

Now, under Socialism, see,
If I said, 'I want Monday free!'
Why, under right conditions, then,
They'd treat their men like they was men;
An' seein' it was Christmas week,
We would n't ‘ave to go an' seek
No favors. We'd just tell ‘em flat:
'We're takin' Monday; an' that's that!'
Wot? Bosses? . . . Well, I s'pose there'd be
This, wot you call, Bureaucracy.

To rule us. Yes; per'aps there might;
An' as you say, it don't seem right
That they should want to boss a man . . . .
But wot about his Fascist plan?

Now, under that, we'd say, 'look ‘ere
Us fellers wants this Monday clear.'
An', bein' reasonable like,
Blokes would n't ‘ave to call a strike
To get their way . . . . Well, I suppose
There's be Dictators - coves like those
To fed a coot on castor oil
If they decided not to toil
On Monday. That seems pretty tough,
All systems seems to treat men rough.

I Don't Care Anymore

Well you can tell ev'ryone I'm a down disgrace
So drag my name all over the place.
I don't care anymore. (I don't care)
You can tell ev'rybody 'bout the state I'm in
You won't catch me crying 'cos I just can't win.
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play.
'Cos I've been talking to the people that you call your friends
And it seems to me there's a means to and end.
They don't care anymore. (they don't care)
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind.
I don't care anymore I don't care no more
I don't care what you say
We never played by the same rules anyway.
I won't be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
Well, I don't care now what you say (I don't care what you say)
'Cos ev'ry day (everyday)
I'm feeling fine with myself (I'm feeling fine with myself)
And I don't care now what you say (I don't care what you say)
Hey I'll do alright by myself (I'll be alright by myself)
I don't care (I don't care) anymore (anymore)
I don't care (I don't care) anymore (anymore)
I don't care (I don't care) anymore (anymore)
I don't care anymore
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
What what?
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
What what?
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
What what?
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
Do you care? Hell no!
What what?
'Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face 'cos ya held all the cards.
I don't care anymore.
And I really ain't bothered what you think of me
'Cos all I want of you is just a let me be.
I don't care anymore
Did you hear? I don't care no more
I don't care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway.
We won't be there any more
So get out of our way.
Let us by
We got better things to do with our time
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care
We don't care
We don't care (anymore)

While The Ghosts Are Putting Make-up On Their Deathmasks In The Green Room

While the ghosts are putting make-up on their death masks in the green room
and looking for their false eyelashes like centipedes on the floor,
I'm out on stage apologizing for a power outage of the stars
that shouldn't be blamed on the windmills everybody's tilting at.

And even Mother Theresa is lining up with the mermaids
on the deck of the latest shipwreck to see if she can get a bunk for the night
without any bugs or bedsores. Crackhead, hillbilly, hippie rednecks
are pouring booze over the amps of the band, and the arsonist in the corner
who hasn't said a thing all night a lip reader could understand
is trying to short out his nerves to start a fire in the walls.
The underground circus is back in town like Cirque du Soleil in eclipse,
and as far as I can see, there are a lot of fire hydrants around
but no sacred clowns, and the audience is perched on a public trapeze
under a tent of starmaps that have never seen the Pleiades.

If you just got here, Edgar Allen Poe's already had it out with the raven,
but nobody cares much, since it should have happened a long time ago,
and besides, Nevermore's not much of a door to get out of
in case of a fire. Go ask the thief who left the moon in the window
and my reflection in the mirror when everything else disappeared.
He'll tell you about the cat burglar who fell off the seventh floor
and lived to go on tour with the tale when she got crazy enough
to be wise, and put on a golden parachute that was the same size as her skin.

Have you seen Rasputin? I'm looking for my bleeding heart,
and the last time I heard of him he was in a bag in a river
with a snake that was using a rooster as a fire to keep warm
while the toxins and the bullets took effect, though all the haemophiliacs
and worried assassins said when they pulled him out, he still wasn't dead.
Hey, you've got to give a man credit for not dying
when he was too innocent to float like a waterlily or an ice-berg
in a trial by ordeal that's more Germanic than Slavic
though he should have been more subtle in his approach
to a courtful of jesters and gleemen who hate
the sound of anyone's laughter in their midst but the king's and their own.

And even the high priest of the Wizard of Oz
with his police megaphone and his taser baton agrees
you can't learn the protocols of mythic inflation
unless you're on your knees. Though I suspect
there's a lot less behind that than at first glance appears
as Cygnus swan-dives sidereally into a pool the size of a tear
without a safety net of shattered mirrors in the land of lakes
to break its Icarian descent into the shallow end of the fools
who are watching with their third eyes closed,
and lens caps on their telescopes like the blindfolds of a firing squad
that don't look much like the hoods of hunting falcons
with a bola of bells around their legs,
and the crescents of the moon for a trinity of talons.

But by the end of the act, the ghost of Lady Nightshade comes forth
like a spiritual toxologist with a spiritual arrowhead in her hands
to make a Clovis point of flint-knapped obsidian as clearly as she can
by plunging it through everyone's heart like Jonestown
that's just run out of black cool aid to bring
everything down to ground zero again as the roof blows off
in an unexpected cyclone, and we're all left lying here
caught dead in our tracks like telescopes
and the standing targets of easels in the doe-glare
of the oncoming headlights of vehicles into roadkill
as if there were no more ripples or wavelengths in the rain
or tree rings anywhere in the petrified heartwood of the pain.
