I was so frustrated in Sabbath after the last few albums. I just didn't like the musical direction Sabbath was going in.

After The Bombing Incident

AFTER the bombing incident last night
at the church of San Pedro
tiny shreds of flesh hang on the walls
and ceiling of the confinement.

the cries are not prolonged except the
sounds of ambulance
and the military jeeps
to and fro the city gates

sleep was denied, and then that early morning
i opened the window
i saw this little blue bird perched on the guava tree
it was singing a very sad song beside a bunch
of ripe guava fruits.

After The Argument

After the argument love was sweeter
making up for words unkind.
Tender love making that lingered
until we both could find
no reason to be unforgiving
while the reason for our living
was to love and know the power
of ecstasy in the night time hour.

But oh my dear we need not spat
to bring about the tender touch.
For we know each other's body
and have learned so much.
The way to tease, the way to please
and the way to satisfy.
So if we argue there's always this.
We will love until we die.

After The Chat

we have only a minute
or so
but after the chat
we usually end it with
take care
you take care
and then we go
or at least we know
that we do different things
on different days
on this chasms of our lives
then i told you
it is raining heavily here
and they you said
bye
and i said bye too
but if you only know
literally speaking
there was no rain
there was only emptiness
the void and the
words in between
the lines
this thinking of
how can i ever tell you?
how can you
ever understand
the rain
its sounds
and meanings

After The Wedding

After a Wedding


After the wedding when the happy couple
stood on the old church steps to have their
picture taken and a throng of people where
jousting to be in the frame too, I walked
around in the church and found in a corner
a white but dusty marble Virgin Mary.

Her eyes were demurely downcast: I said:
“We’re alone you can open your eyes now.”
Was it just my imagination, caused by my
longing to believe, that I saw an eyelid flutter
and a half smile play upon cold, dusty lips?
….Pale as limestone I rejoined the throng.

After The Party's Over

After the party's over
And the guests have all passed the door
There's a melancholy feeling
And your home you re-explore.

Where once was conversation
Where once was noise and light
There is now just empty silence
And the darkened shell of night.

After the party’s over
And the friend and the relatives gone
There are spirits still within the home
And you hear a haunting song.

Where once were people standing
Where once was energy
Is not now peopled with their shadows
And the only one is me.

After the party’s over
And the glasses and plates are all clean
There’s a stillness that’s returning
And that party is now just a dream.

After The Great Flood

after the great flood
it was the black crow which was first
allowed to fly,
Moses had confidence on its
aggression,
it did not come back you know that well,
it puked on dead flesh and
flew away
deciding on its own now
charting its own
destiny,

then it was the pigeon's turn to serve
coy and shy and yet obedient
it came back with a twig and a leaf

whether this is all symbolism or not
an interplay and contrast between black and white
crow and pigeon, good or evil
disobedience or impunity, i don't
go into a hairsplitting
or argument with you

but i have to admit, i like to be that black crow.
i never want to be the pigeon that you believe i am.

After The Ball/million Miles

After the ball, after the ball, you were the one out in the hall
You were the one, the one who would love me, after the ball.
After the ball, after the ball, you were the one out in the hall
You were the one, the one who would love me, after the ball.
Well, I arrived, looked around but the room was full of strangers
Nowhere was a freindly face to be found.
Later on, I awoke, but the party it was over
There you were waiting to bring me round.
How many million miles, day-oh?
How many million miles, day-oh?
When I get up, up, up in the morning, whoa! lord I know.
When I look up, up, up in the morning, whoa! lord I know.
How many million miles, day-oh?
How many million miles, day-oh?
How many million miles, day-oh?

After The Rain

A hush had descended, the air was quite still,
Nothing was moving beside the old mill;
Nature postponed both it's joys and it's pain,
Holding it's breath until after the rain.

Waiting for heaven to give up it's prize
Long had creation looked up to the skies,
Searching the air for the treasure contained,
Soon to be satisfied after the rain.

Pure glistening water now dropped from the sky,
Feeding the earth, once so hungry and dry;
Soaking and swelling the rivers again,
Refreshed and replete now after the rain.

The seasons had ticked with their regular rhythm,
The rainbow displayed it's most colourful prism;
The people, like flowers, had come out again,
Bathing in sunshine, after the rain.

Written June 1994

After The Rain

I try to write a song
But I don't find any word to chant
It's been a long night
And the cold starts to numb my heart

You hold me like shadow
Clouding my mind in silence
And no one there's to help
In the dark I slowly fall

After the rain
What's left remain
For me to care
After the storm
Showed its anger
Will you still stay?

After the rain
Can I see the sun
Tomorrow
After the tears
Of sorrow
Will I grow stronger?

Tell me not to fear thunder
That roars loud shaking the soul
And I will fight it till the end
Though frail hope I've only got

After the rain
Can I stop
This agony pain
After the flood
Will mud restrain
Me to move on

After the rain
Will something be
Finally changed
After the game
Was played
Will we learn to love again?

I want to give you smile
Before it's hidden by another rain
Together we'll stand close
Or is it time for us to say goodbye?

After The Sunset

After the sunset,
When slowly the darkness crept
And the sky was covered with a star studded veil.
I sat on the terrace with a cocktail.

As I sipped the moon came up,
I heard a bird chirp.
The air was mildly fragrant
And the aura soul stirring and pregnant/

As i went over my day,
I spotted the Milky Way.
My childhood flashed across my mind,
When under the sky I lay besides
My siblings and chased the fire flies,
With my darting eyes.
Wistfully I wondered when did I see them last?

The memories from the past-
Raat ki rani, beat of drums,
And strains of soulful song being sung,
By a weary labourer after a hard day.
It was sheer magic in those warm nights in May

Those sounds and sights
Were the joys of the night.
I recalled with a sigh
In those days long gone by.

Now in our overcrowded rooms,
We try to dispel the gloom.
Watch TV or read
And drift into a fitful sleep.

After The Concert

After the concert you went
around the back and there
was the bus with John Lewis
talking to some guy by the

door and having got by them
you climbed aboard the bus
and saw the other members
of the MJQ and having made

your way towards them Percy
Heath gave you a big smile and
you said who you were and he
gave you the low down on his

double bass and signed your
programme and so did Connie
Kay although he didnt have a
lot to say and then there was

Milt Jackson who was sitting
in a side seat a guy you wanted
to meet who had played with
most of the jazz greats years

before and he said a few words
and signed with a quick squiggle
and then as you departed the bus
John Lewis all gentlemanly and

soft spoken signed the programme
too and then you were off back
home to play the record of the
MHQ you’d bought carrying your

images of the MJQ guys in your
memory that you’d caught.

The Day After The Hurricane

And they return home
after the quick evacuation
home to their homelessness,
home to the loss of their properties
built up for years and decades
now pounded and crumpled by waves.

And they return home,
home to their parks and businesses
bulldozed by giant monsters in the night.
And they return home
home to their ports and shores
finding houses of their neighbors
uprooted and thrown into deep seas.

And they return home,
home to their childhood and memories
recorded in albums and documents
videos, CDs and files in computers
now drowned by waters
and covered by piles of dirt and mud.

And they return home,
home to their own town or city
which once was lighted with much glee.
And here they now return
to this gloom of darkness
with live wires that may soon
explode into big flames of fires.

Such a tragic home coming
from the fury of the Super Power Sandy!
Have mercy, O Lord, on the victims
of this merciless hurricane.

Victor Hugo

After The Battle

MY father, hero of benignant mien,
On horseback visited the gory scene,
After the battle as the evening fell,
And took with him a trooper loved right well,
Because of bravery and presence bold.
The field was covered with the dead, all cold,
And shades of night were deepening : came a sound,
Feeble and hoarse, from something on the ground ;
It was a Spaniard of the vanquished force,
Who dragged himself with pain beside their course.
Wounded and bleeding, livid and half dead,
'Give me to drink - in pity, drink!' he said.
My father, touched, stretched to his follower now
A flask of rum that from his saddle-bow
Hung down : 'The poor soul - give him drink,' said he
But while the trooper prompt, obediently
Stooped towards the other, he of Moorish race
Pointed a pistol at my father's face,
And with a savage oath the trigger drew :
The hat flew off, a bullet passing through.
As swerved his charger in a backward stride,
'Give him to drink the same,' my father cried.

AFTER THE BALL......In two voices, Mother & Son

Son:
After the breakdown,
euphoric fits in a room
lit by one candlelight of pretense
denying the end of marriage,
you twirled by yourself on the floor.

Softly shading your moods
to the subdued warmth of lamps
cloaked in the hue of a man,
have you always denied
the life that direct light imposed?

Floating through the rooms
veiled in scarves
and talismans of tarnished silver,
was it illusion you followed after
in the trailing ripple of curtains?

Mother:

Mine was the black in magic;
romance that dined
among shadows shaping someone
of another time,
and yet it was madness
that watched love burn his clothes I draped,

Too near to the warmth of its flame-
This masquerade of marriage
consumed by the brutish pale
of a bare light bulb
intruding upon my dream,
dispelled it for the fraud it became.

Unveiling back to its drab walls,
the smoke-filled mirrors
of my delusion-
I awoke each morning
divorced by this truth, robed
in its tattered ruins of daylight.

After The Fall

In an anonymous rendezvous
Where the forbidden lovers repair
Theyre burning down another damn candle
Theyre melting the tables and chairs
Beneath them applause from the balcony
Whenever they accomplished making love
Other times they thought they heard laughter
Coming from the balcony above
Chorus
She lies to his right and she carelessly recites
All of her brand new appetites
She seems brittle and small, it dont sound like her at all
Since she came back to him after the fall
She said you never visit the countryside
So Ive made you a country to order
She put up a little tent in the bedroom
Crickets played on a tape-recorder
The ceiling was festooned with phosphorous stars
She noticed his skin turning cold
Burning all his clothes on the bonfire
Relax she whispered and tightened the blindfold
Chorus
Youve changed but not for the better babe
Id tell you why but whats the use
cos its the same kind of pity
A drunkard gives as his excuse
You were sharp and ideal as a bobby pin
Now your eyes are deserted and quiet
We both look like those poor shattered mannequins
Thrown through the window in the riot
She lies in his arms and without any qualms
Revels in shallow delights
She seems brittle and small, it dont sound like her at all
Since she came back to him after the fall

Rene & Georgette Magritte With Their Dog After The War

Words & music by paul simon
Rene and georgette magritte
With their dog after the war
Returned to their hotel suite
And they unlocked the door
Easily losing their evening clothes
They danced by the light of the moon
To the penguins, the moonglows
The orioles, and the five satins
The deep forbidden music
Theyd been longing for
Rene and georgette magritte
With their dog after the war
Rene and georgette magritte
With their dog after the war
Were strolling down christopher street
When they stopped in a mens store
With all of the mannequins dressed in the style
That brought tears to their immigrant eyes
Just like the penguins, the moonglows
The orioles, and the five satins
The easy stream of laughter
Flowing through the air
Rene and georgette magritte
With their dog apres la guerre
Side by side
They fell asleep
Decades gliding by like indians
Time is cheap
When they wake up they will find
All their personal belongings
Have intertwined
Oh rene and georgette magritte
With their dog after the war
Were dining with the power elite
And they looked in their bedroom drawer
And what do you think
They have hidden away
In the cabinet cold of their hearts?
The penguins, the moonglows
The orioles, and the five satins
For now and ever after
As it was before
Rene and georgette magritte
With their dog after the war

After The Boom

There is total silence
No offense, no defense
Everything stops
There are no mops
No janitors
No dancers
No firemen
No policemen
Dust covers the Sun
Dirt hovers over the Moon.

The unnatural eruption
The infernal demolition
Hell lives on Earth
Death sleeps on the turf
Children cannot wail
Adults cannot yell
The devils are present
God must be absent
Explosion is everywhere
This is too much to bear.

After the boom…
There is total silence.

Tear Down the Walls

That was a powerful statement
Made by a serious President.
These words changed the continents
And the whole world.
Those words made a lot of sense
To the young and the old.
That was back then,
Why now, more walls are being erected.
I guess, we, humans,
Never learned from our shortsighted
Experience due to selfishness,
Greed, hypocrisy, and weakness.
There is always a humane way
To encircle the heavens with your concrete walls
And your venomously man-made bay.
No matter how tall
Is your fence, you cannot stop the air
From traveling and twirling in the atmosphere.
You cannot stop the waves from caressing the shore.
You cannot stop the volcanoes from burning the floor.
All walls will come down one day.
All chiefs will return penniless to the alley
Of death, where vitam aeternam is a laughing matter;
When Mom speaks, you better listen to Mother.
Brother against brother, sister against sister,
Nation against nation, the universe belongs to my brother,
To my sister and to all of us; it does not matter
Where you were born,
The sound of the horn
Will disintegrate your soul when the time comes.

Please tear down the walls and plant colorful mums.

After The Rain Has Fallen

Words by sting
The palace guards are all sleeping
Their fires burn into the night
Theres a threat of rain on the dark horizon
And all thats left is a quarter moon of light
He climbs up through the darkness
No weapon but his surprise
The greatest thief in the high sahara
Enters the room where a sleeping princess lies
All your money, your pretty necklace
This is my work on such a night
Theres a storm coming over the mountain
Ill be gone long before the morning
After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
You find that Ive take nothing, that
Love cant replace in the blink of an eye
He was as gentle as the night wind
As no lover had been before
And the rings she wore for her bride groom
Slipped from her fingers and fell to the floor
Take me with you, take me with you
Before my lonely life is set
Ive been promised to another
To a man Ive never even met
After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
Youll find that Ive take nothing, that
Love cant replace in the blink of an eye
After the thunders spoken, and
After the lightning bolts been hurled
After the dream is broken, therell
Still be love in the world
She said take me to another life
Take me for a pirates wife
Take me where the wind blows
Take me where the red wine flows
Take me to the danger
Take me to the life of crime
Take me to the stars
Take me to the moon while we still have time
After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
Youll find that Ive taken nothing, that
Love cant replace in the blink of an eye
After the thunders spoken, and
After the lightning bolts been hurled
After the dream is broken, therell
Still be love in the world
Still be love in the world

After The Love Has Gone

David foster, jay graydon & bill champlin
For awhile to love was all we could do
We were young and we knew
And our eyes were alive
Deep inside we knew our love was true
For awhile we paid no mind to the past
We knew love would last
Evry night somethin right
Would invite us to begin the dance
Somethin happened along the way
What used to be happy was sad
Somethin happened along the way
And yesterday was all we had
And oh after the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around
Oh oh oh afterthe love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
For awhile to love each other with all
We would ever need
Love was strong for so long
Never knew that what was
Wrong oh baby wasnt right
We tried to find what we had
Till sadness was all we shared
We were scared this affair would lead our love into
Somethin happened along the way
Yesterday was all we had
Somethin happened along the way
What used to be happy is sad
Somethin happened along the way
Oh yesterday was all we had
And oh after the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around
Oh oh oh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Oh oh oh oh oh oh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Oh woh woh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Oh woh woh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Oh woh woh
Oh woh woh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Woh woh woh after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love thats lost be found
Woh woh woh
