An Answer to Frances Cornford

Why do you rush through the fields in trains,
Guessing so much and so much.
Why do you flash through the flowery meads,
Fat-head poet that nobody reads;
And why do you know such a frightful lot
About people in gloves and such?

Everything You Know Is Wrong

I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane
With a rabid wolverine in my underwear
When suddenly a guy behind me in the back seat
Popped right up and cupped his hands across my eyes
I guessed, is it uncle frank or cousin louie?
Is it bob or joe or walter?
Could it be bill or jim or ed or bernie or steve?
I probably would have kept on guessing
But about that time we crashed into the truck
And as Im laying bleeding there on the asphalt
Finally I recognize the face of my hibachi dealer
Who takes off his prosthetic lips and tells me
Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so important doesnt matter
Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong
I was walkin to the kitchen for some golden grahams
When I accidentally stepped into a alternate dimension
And soon I was abducted by some aliens from space
Who kinda looked like jamie farr
They sucked out my internal organs
And they took some polaroids and said I was a darn good sport
And as a way of saying thank you
They offered to transport me back to any point in history that I would care to go
And so I had them send me back to last thursday night
So I could pay my phone bill on time
Just then the disembodied head of colonel sanders started yelling
Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so important doesnt matter
Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong
I was just about to mail a letter to my evil twin
When I got a nasty paper cut
And, well, to make a long story short
It got infected and I died
So now Im up in heaven with st. peter by the pearly gates
And its obvious he doesnt like the nehru jacket that Im wearing
He tells me that theyve got a dress code
Well, he lets me into heaven anyway
But I get the room next to the noisy ice machine for all eternity
And every day he runs by screaming
Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so important doesnt matter
Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong

The Memory Remains Inside My Head

The memory remains insise my head
Because that is where my memory is kept
I don't have alzheimers it
And I don't want that for myself either
Let me tell you
My memory is very sharp

The Only Voices I hear Are On The Inside

I was born not being able to hear
Born not hearing my mother tell me I'm dear
Born never listening to anyone who spoke to me
Born not enjoying music
Born without the ability to gauge sound, unable to hear the clock tick
But since the day I was born
Since before I could talk, I could scorn
There was one thing I always did hate
And that was the thing deepest inside of me,
The thing for which I cursed fate
Worse than deafness or being unable to see
Since the day I was born I heard voices
Not when loved ones talked, but voices that weren't my choice
To hear, voices that were inside my head
Voices that nobody else heard, but I didn't know if they were lying
Because my hearing has always been dead
I'd hear screeching or dying
When none was there
Those voices they'd tell me what to do and how could I deny them?
They were, they are, and they will be the only ones who care
Because they're the only one that speak to me, I can't find the sin
That I committed to be born like this, to be born broken
I've heard more conversations than any other man
And yet I've never heard man utter a word, through my whole lifespan
The only voices I hear are on the inside
And it's the greatest torment that I hide
They'll just tell me I'm crazy, well in writing
But these voices, they accept me, they sing
These voices they know because they've talked to me
These voices are the only I've ever known the
The first voices I've ever heard
Like a mother, I've never listened to a singing bird
But I've listened to a cacophonous symphony of arguing inside my head
These voices are like the woman I did not choose, but wed
I can't separate myself from them
The only time I hear anything, it's torment to condemn
Me, it's funny that I could never speak to anyone but myself
But I guess I've never, ever, been lonely... not ever.
I
Have
Never
Been
Alone
W ho could save me from myselves?

You Are Such An Actor

You have been a highly acclaimed person,
For a number of years.
And yet you do not appear to be on anyone's radar.
Very few people know who you are.
Why are you flying so low?
Is that intentional?

'What are you saying?
What point are you making? '

If more people knew who you were,
You would be respected more.

'And that is a very sad commentary to make,
About today's people.
Isn't it?
To think one has to first impress others,
With a doing that gets attention mentioned...
To then be treated as a human being?
Oh, I just wake up everyday praying,
For that kind of notoriety! '

You should.

'And why is that? '

It would make me feel better to say,
I know you.

'Stop it. Stop it.
The thought of it gives me goose bumps.
To think my efforts known by more people,
Would enhance the only purpose you have in your life...
To feel better about yourself.
Oh 'wow' I'm beginning to feel such a rush that thrills me inside.'

You are such an actor.

'And you should find something else to do,
Than wasting your time trying to find how mine operates.
If I sought to seek that kind of attention,
I would have long devoted myself in re-creating the wheel.'

And what does that mean?

'Having no ambition and stealing from others,
What had already been invented.
To then set my aim to make claims of what I've done.
With my eyes affixed to fame and glory.
Like nearly everyone who wishes a 'Reality Show'.

Why haven't you done that?
That would have made it a lot easy for me to accept.

'With the giving to me respect,
Right? '

Of course.
Those reality shows are so...
Real.

'And hollow of any sign of content.'

Yep. You are out of touch.

'Thank you.
And I am glad very few have noticed,
Just how distant and out of touch I am and can be.'

Why don't you know the answer

When a problem comes up,
You blame someone else,
Except yourself.

When something hard needs to be done,
You get someone else,
To do it for you.

When it comes to quizzes and tests,
All you do is,
Guess.

When you get asked a question,
You always say,
I don't know the answer.

Why do you blame someone else,
Or get someone to someone to do something for you,
Or guess.

Why don't you know the answer?
Why?

If You Know Who And Where We Are

As long as you feel I remain accessible,
And here for 'you'...
Needing not a hint or clue,
As to my motives.
That should be enough,
To stop a potential rocking of our boat.
Our hearts are known,
And shown to be devoted.

Why should you prioritize the opinions of others,
That have nothing to do with the relationship we share?
Why should you care,
If you know who and where we are.
And what is between just us.
With a caring deep within our reach.
Especially when you know others can barely stay afloat.
And together they find no time to speak.

William Shakespeare

Sonnet 34: Why didst thou promise such a beauteous day

Why didst thou promise such a beauteous day
And make me travel forth without my cloak,
To let base clouds o'ertake me in my way,
Hiding thy brav'ry in their rotten smoke?
'Tis not enough that through the cloud thou break,
To dry the rain on my storm-beaten face,
For no man well of such a salve can speak
That heals the wound and cures not the disgrace.
Nor can thy shame give physic to my grief;
Though thou repent, yet I have still the loss.
Th' offender's sorrow lends but weak relief
To him that bears the strong offence's cross.
Ah, but those tears are pearl which thy love sheds,
And they are rich, and ransom all ill deeds.

Why Do They Waste Such Time?

I was called a fool to offend.
And when that did not happen,
Since I ignored them...
It was then stated I felt I was better.
As if I was 'entitled' to be respected.
And I thought if my actions were not accepted...
Why do they waste such time?

And these are the folks who have provoked themselves,
Out of their own minds.
You know the kind?
Those with hopes to find someone who is worthy,
To inflict their mental illness.
And kill ambitions that weren't reflected,
In the spreading of expected dirt!

Why do they waste such time?
When in my mind my life has always been mine!
And not programmed to self destruct.
Something that addicts them.
And they can not give that up!

You Know Who You Are

It looked like it
It felt like it
But in the end it was just a show
With good acting
Fine acting
Too bad the sponsers had to go
And you know who you are
Poor production
Poor direction
All the beautiful sad cliche's
The sound was bad
I couldn't hear you
But then what were we doing on the stage
And you know who you are
Oh yeah
Tell me if it feels like the key
Well it's easy too easy
Cause when I saw you there
With your eyes in the air
Ahh
Everything we done we done before
Somehow it seemed to make a little more sense
It was such a close call I think that's why I'm writing this at all
I'd call out your name loud
You really don't think it would make any sense
Cause you know who you are

You know why I love the rain? Because no one knos I'm crying.

You know why I love the rain? Because no one knows you’re crying
By: Jean Pullman


I look at you with the pain buried in my soul
You say you see it but I say you don’t
I feel the razor blade swiping across my skin is the only answer
I know you don’t understand

CHORUS
It’s raining so now’s the time my tears come
I go in a corner in my room and slice my leg
Watching the river of blood
You might think I’m crazy
I’m just depressed
And I love it when the rain comes

I wish I could just tell someone how I feel
But my mouth is held shut by an invisible hand
I locked my heart and threw away the key
I will no longer let it break the heal and break again
Why can’t you love me for me
Why must you expect me to be something I’m not
I wish that love didn’t kill me little by little
Because I’m almost dead

CHORUS
It’s raining so now’s the time my tears come
I go in a corner in my room and slice my leg
Watching the river of blood
You might think I’m crazy
I’m just depressed
And I love it when the rain comes


This time I’m going deep
I’ll hit the vain so I will no longer feel pain
My heart won’t be broken I’ll be set free
So the rain comes and washes away the blood
No one will know when I died
Crying it was you I thought of.

And You Know The Time

And you know the hair that would be a love,
Never are the stars and moon and sun beheld
By the lovers of the night, the beloved speaks too hard.

You would come hither, and bend you leader’s head
To see a sorrow and find the stars, of the wild birds.
Light has a trick you discovered when young.

Under a time is the tree of unbroken love,
Though lasses contemplate when they die,
Knowing hair is significant after dawn.

You Know How We Like Horses?

What's the matter, son?
Someone's called you names again at school?

'It's my Biology teacher.
Mommy...
You know how we like horses? '

Yes.
Why?

'My teacher hates them.'

Why would you say that?

'After I read my report in front of the class.
She called me to her desk.
And then whispered in my ear...
~One day...
I bet you will be hung like a horse.~
And then she winked at me! '

She WHAT?

'She winked at me.
Don't get upset, mommy.
She only wants me to do better.'

Do You Know Who I Am?

Do you know who I am.
I am the angry wind that storms the night.
I am the rain that pours.
I am the storm of the night.
I am your future.
Not your distant past.
I am the rush of the fast.

I am the evil one that fills you hart.
I am the one who will not part.
I am the one who captured you from the start.

I will never let you go.
To me you shall bow.
I am your master.
I'd be who you must obey.

I am depression.
Your only lord and master.
I will leave you.
When you come to your end.

Sister, Do You Know My Name?

Well were back in school again
and I dont really know anyone
I really want to be your friend
cause I dont really know anyone
And the bus is pulling
up to your house
I wish you could be sitting here
next to me
i didnt see you at summer school
but I saw you at the corner store
and I dont want to break the rules
cause Ive broken them all before
But every time I see you
I wonder why
I dont break a couple rules
so that youll notice me
Sister do you know my name?
Ive heard it before but i want to know
I got a funny feeling
that its gonna work out
cause now I see you sitting here
next to me

You're Such A Wire

Why do you hate me?
Why don't you just simmer down?
You could be doing great things
Instead of just pushing me around
Or maybe just be sleeping
Even you at times must get tired
You're such a wire
You're such a wire look at you
You're such a wire look at you packing it blasting it
You're such a wire
The world it looks so big but it feels so small
I'm snapping like a twig in this dried up dying fall
I think the winter is gonna be a real whirligig
Why do i hate you?
That's because i am full of it
If all your dreams came ture then you must be completely full of it
You won't catch me weeping 'cause you know that i'm not a crier
I'm such a wire
I'm such a wire look at me
I'm such a wire look at me packing it blasting it
I'm such a wire

Now you know for MLady Ann Beard

Without a light no shadow can
display itself before your eyes.
Although the light be pale and wan
it can a shadow realise.

The shadows dance upon the wall.
When tapers flicker in the breeze.
They mean and do no harm at all.
But dowse the flame and shadows cease.

Fear not the dark without a light.
You only need to kindle flame,
then shadows dance for your delight.
The shadows to the light source came.

Beware the man with no shadow
and no reflection in the glass.
These are the signs by which you know
your worst nightmare has come to pass.

You have become a vampire’s prey.
You don’t believe such tales are true,
that vampires walk the earth today.
A single bite will convince you.

Initiation You Know Will Irritate

Why should it have to explained?
Figure it out!
You have a brain.
And why some do,
I wonder of the use?
My comments aren't always patronizing.
And if a useless one could be renovated?
Only another miracle has been witnessed.
Is every thought in this air confusing you?
I can understand if it does.
You wish to play with the best of my emotions.
And I am looking for the nearest exit.
Somehow what had been attractive,
With skin tone claims and nonexistent depth...
Begins to devalue in purpose.
There is absolutely nothing left between us,
But a shared unpleasant attitude.
If I do anything you dislike or don't understand...
Why introduce an initiation you know will irritate?
You send an invitation to irritation each time.
And you want me to explain...
Why that white picket fence,
Wont find us together building it!

You Know That You Are Very Deep In My Heart

You know that you are very deep in my heart,
how much I adore you
while in your absence I miss you for long moments

and love brings a kind of sorrow
but continually you sneak deeper into my heart.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,

my words, my deeds and feelings are no secret
but sometimes my words get few,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments

and you are in every thought
and our comfort with each other has been present from the beginning.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,

that our love goes much further than just sympathy
that nobody can fabricate such feelings,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments.

Everything that I am and want to be you do know
and sometimes you are in every word and sentence.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments.
