Over & Above

Half past 12 on a friday night everythings wrong and it doesnt feel right
Tried to talk to someone in the bar she didnt like my face I didnt get far
When you grow up youre gonna walk big strides just like me
When you grow up youre gonna hit the big time wait and see
And I listened to his guiding voice like a man who overhears god
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence
Are you over
So tall daddy used to tower above him symbol of unreachable
Time fades icons of perfection cruel result but not intention
His values are not the ones I choose hes failed in himself
In the blaze of his pride an independence expressed
Not there is no guiding voice like a man who loses god
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence
Are you over
And a man cant understand his father til he becomes a father too
Now his own sons expectation becomes his own hearts burden new
Dad I didnt understand the pressure could it bring them back together
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence
Over and above what Im capable of
You couldnt take the weight of my purest innocence

Just One Sniff of Gin

Money isn't capable,
Of having it stretch...
Past the eyes of the taxman.

Nor can it be squeezed,
Or pinched...
Without a sighing moan to groan.

Money as it is ('is') weak.
And can make an oooweee ow...
To dropp down,
On the ground slipping quick...
From greased and slickened,
Mansion banners.

You know,
The spiral and wrap around kind.

If you've been living high on a fat hog...
Money isn't capable,
Of passing the taxman's grasp.
With a frisking that could last,
Until the blood began to drip from cottage cheese.
The diet we adopted!
Provoked by the pinching of the squeeze.

Money as it is ('is') weak.
And can make an oooweee ow...
To dropp down,
On the ground slipping quick.

Money can't be used to make the rich any richer.
But it sure knows how to bring us all
To our knees.

Even 'if' you had it!
No...
Money can't be used to make the rich any richer.
But it sure can bring a squell,
To aging knees.

Money isn't capable,
Of having it stretch...
Past the eyes of the taxman.

But,
A few dollars right now...
Could buy me a 'sniff' of gin.

Could buy me a 'sniff' of gin.

The treachery

A man is capable of falling
In love with more than one woman
At a time and pursuing them alike.
A woman is capable of getting
Love from more than one man
At a time and encouraging them alike.
Loving is a feeding to men.
Being loved is feeding to women.
Both are capable of treachery.

The Poems Bring Me Back To Myself

THE POEMS BRING ME BACK TO MYSELF

The poems bring me back to myself
I begin to live again –

Without the poems
I would have to make a new life-

I do not know if I am capable of it-

A life without poems without poetry
With other words perhaps-

I am too old to slowly write the long narrative
I never was capable of before

Little poems
Little lines
What I am capable of now.

Alexander Pope

The general cry is against ingratitude, but the complaint is misplaced, it should be against vanity; none but direct villains are capable of willful ingratitude; but almost everybody is capable of thinking he hath done more that another deserves, while the other thinks he hath received less than he deserves.

It seems we are capable of immense love and loyalty, and as capable of deceit and atrocity. It's probably this shocking ambivalence that makes us unique.

It's All Gravy Ft. Romeo

Remember this...
Romeo, Christina Milian
Verse1: Romeo
I remember when (when when when)
Let me turn back time on Big Ben
Let me tell you about the story from start to end
Release the ink from my Ballpoint pen, when it touches the page
It reveals the message that I send
Are you listening?
Let me tell you about my first and only christening
My eyes all glistening
With the innocence of a blank page
Life is like a blank page
Enjoy the beef, the strife, the rage,
Wait... let me turn the page
And continue to verbally burn the page
With fire flows that are capable of burning down the stage
Chorus: Romeo & Christina Milian
Remember when we used to say
Aint always gonna be this way
From lemonade to alize
Now its all gravy
Remember when we used to say
Aint always gonna be this way
From lemonade to alize
Now its all gravy, baby...
Verse2: Romeo
Back in my school days
Was the cool days
School was the good old days, now
I tend to leave my teachers amazed
They never knew my hard work paves the way
When I talk about back in the days
The hard life
Everything will be all gravy if I play my cards right
Thats right
Mother said keep close friends tight
Keep frienemies in the distance, in the night,
Wait... let me turn the page
And continue to verbally burn the page
With fire flows that are capable of burning down the stage
Chorus: Romeo & Christina Milian
Remember when we used to say
Aint always gonna be this way
From lemonade to alize
Now its all gravy
Remember when we used to say
Aint always gonna be this way
From lemonade to alize
Now its all gravy, baby...

Assassin

Something must be done about the lone man
Gun concealed to carry out his heart of stone plan
He is eaten up with hate
Got your attention far too late
Could you have stopped him if youd known beforehand
He seemed like such a nice guy
To his neighbors
Kept to himself and never bothered them with favors
Nobody ever knew him
There was nobody to see through him
He was left alone to plan the death of his betrayers
Whos gonna be the hangman
Whos gonna be the judge
Whos gonna cast the first stone
Wholl settle up this grudge
Its so obvious the man is guilty
Tell me who is capable of showing any pity
Can anybody name the real assassin
No ones gonna take responsibility
How did this man come out of our society
Could our intervention
Have prevented his intention
Well you know hes gonna plead insanity
Whos gonna be the hangman
Whos gonna be the judge
Whos gonna cast the first stone
Wholl settle up this grudge
Whos gonna be the hangman
Whos gonna be the judge
Whos gonna cast the first stone
Wholl settle up this grudge
Its so obvious the man is guilty
Now tell me who is capable showing any pity
Can anybody name the real assassin
Shining in the moonlight (1984), nuclear furniture.
3:28 (music: craig chaquico, lyrics: mickey thomas, craig chaquico)
I can feel the heat rising up inside of me
I can still remember how her warm touch made me feel
And thinking of that night
In the light of the moon
The feeling never fades
It ended too soon
Stranded in a broken dream
Holding onto fantasies
Lookin for the magic there
In her eyes
Shining in the moonlight
Looking for love
Shining in the moonlight
Looking for young love

Strong Relation

I am not capable to
retain you for long
And you remind me
Strong relation.

Dramatic changes are being made
in my life profiles
And you remain the same
tilldate.

See I am terrified
See I am dormant
And there is no end
of this day that
one can declare loser.

I am not capable to
retain you for long
And the dictum prevails.

Capable

Take care of all that which is loved!
And...
Don't let it,
Slip away...
From one who keeps you stable.

Take care of all that which is loved!
And...
Don't let it,
Slip away...
From one who keeps you stable,
And is capable of love.

It can be easy to get sympathy and pity,
But...
A love that is,
Will forgive...
One who's love is stable,
With a giving up of love.

It can be easy to get sympathy and pity,
But...
Don't let love,
Slip away...
To label disabled from a love once capable.

Mircea Eliade

If man completely forgets that there is death, that there is an end to it all, we risk becoming monkeys again. The explanation is simple,the active man, the creative man, is especially excited by the idea that one day it will all be over, that there will be an end, a final rest. Be overly aware of the existence of this end and you'll get from people the most extraordinary efforts. Whomever knows this constantly is capable of raising mountains, is capable of the wildest liberties, the most courageous acts.

Cat Heart

I searched in deep desert
Thought she may be busty with concert
Looks as if she is down with barren heart
But can manage well as she is capable and smart

Why has she gone off completely when on peak?
Built of strong will power and never felt weak
Never uttered a work or tried to speak
Even if suture deemed uncertain and bleak

Where she is I may pray for her well being
She may be doing exceptionally and managing well
We all need not advise her or tell
She has capability of turning hell

I would try to venture in her kind approach
She was well versed and needed no coach
The poetic world might have benefited a lot
But alas! Something was definitely lost

I remember the first encounter
I had just put step in and entered
She was reigning supreme
It had left large impact on me

I want her comeback with pomp and show
The desert flower must boom and grow
Even though fragrance less but yet a flower
Yet capable enough to invite rain to shower

Will she sing again and air the melody?
Will it be same again as glorious lady?
I would love it to happen
The situation may not be favorable even

I am sure my call will be responded
The appeal/advice may be heard and heeded
What can be expected from a noble soul?
Not to be lost for ever as in the case with owl

Knock the door and appear again
Don’t allow it to go in drain
Still worthwhile remains to be delivered
Even though the situation may be altered

How an Ordinary!

How an ordinary man can steer the course?
Of a mighty nation crumbled under its own weight of course
Relentless struggle with no support from people
Yet so much zeal and enthusiasm and capable

How difficult and dangerous is half won struggle?
How dangerous is it to interpret the law of jungles?
Where each individual animal is in search of easy pry
When find the field is open then why not to try?

Country can go to dogs if not nurtured
Not imparted rights and duties and ignorantly ventured
Who else can shed the blood for country’s in dependence?
And yet very much linked to each other for dependence

Anna Hazare showed the way to harness people’s energy
It was neither funded by any group or helped with money
It was self emancipation of like minded people with resolve
Stick on the roads if not tried earnestly for problems to solve

Only people are supreme in nation’s voice
People choose the representatives to work on promises
Rules and regulations are for smooth functioning
Not to subvert it for self interest and undermining

What does the constitution guarantee to its people?
Administration free from fear, strong and capable
Independent judiciary to uphold the basic rights
Where does the question arise leading to fights!

Absolute power corrupts absolutely
If things are not pursued positively
Rulers have to draw strength from the source
That can’t come away by manipulating force

Parliament or anybody can be called holy home
Members or representatives are always welcome
They are our sign of hopes and guardians
Why are we put to shame to call them as custodians?

Take for granted if population rises in revolt
Demands better facilities and control over faults
Things must be takes as possible eruption of volcano
They will be forced out and this they must know

If crowd remain silent with no provocation
It is nice, good and healthy indication
We have lost no love or turned enemy in relation
But today it is the answer we are searching in question
