Out Of This World

when we die
we go into the arms of those who remember us

we are home now
out of our heads
out of our minds
out of this world
out of this time

are you drowning or waving?
i just want you to save me
should we try to get along?
just try to get along

so we move
we change by the speed of the choices that we made
and the barrier of ourself made (??)
that's so retrograde

are you drowning or waving?
i just need you to save me
should we try to get along?
just try to get along

i am alive
i'm gonna wait 'til the trials of confusion create
there are times when i feel the way we're about to break
when there's too much to say

we are home now
out of our heads
out of our minds
out of this world
out of this time
out of this time

There Is Too Much In Me

THERE IS TOO MUCH IN ME

There is too much in me
Too many feelings-
Too much longing for the past
Too much need for those no longer here
Too much wishing to see and be with them again-

The past calls me again and again-
I do not know how to-
I cannot answer it.

I wait for some other witness
From those past times of my life
I need to hear from and share with them.

There is no one left who cares.

I alone care
For so much which is gone.

And when I go
All of us will be gone.

And where is the future generation?
And what have I done with my life?

We All Feel Too Much To Say

WE ALL FEEL TOO MUCH TO SAY

We all feel too much to say-
We do not have words for all the intuitions and intimations-
Our lives are richer than we can define-
They have nuances we with difficulty sense-

All we are is more than we are-
And when we define ourselves
We make a shorthand which misses almost everything.

There Is Too Much Of Myself

THERE IS TOO MUCH OF MYSELF

There is too much of myself
Too much of me
I am everywhere
Words upon words upon words
Connecting and commenting
Reviewing and defending -

I would like a rest
I would like to hear myself forever be quiet
To never have to say or write anything else again

Small and quiet and lonesome and alone
Unheard unknown unread unlistened to
A little quiet secret on the edge of nowhere
Forever unheard.

There Is So Much to Say

There is so much to say
With complicated reasons
And the varieties of way
In new and yearly seasons

We have but a little while
To say our thoughts and mind
To walk the distant mile
Before those hours are behind

Blessed are the interrelations
Of every village and tree
There is so much graduation
In there thoroughly to see

Where brook is flowing freely
Breezing whispering leaves
Water streams colors steely
The greenery fields and sleeve.

There Is Too Much to Be Enjoyed

If my needs are not met
I have no regret leaving
These days have activated
My wishes and dreams
And it seems too many
Have delayed theirs...
To put their lives on hold.
Waiting to behold
Glorious retirements
Sitting in backyards
Within fences to reminisce.
That kind of laziness
Is not on my top 10.
Pretending we live those days...
Are not these days we live.
If my needs are not met
I have no regret leaving
To get them fulfilled.
Times have changed.
And so have I.
Listening to excuse makers...
Is not on my agenda.
There is too much to be enjoyed,
To be annoyed by 'show and tell' folks.

There Is Too Much to Appreciate

There is too much to appreciate.
And when one breaks away,
From having whims like children...
There is too much to appreciate,
To care who does not!

There is too much Beauty

THERE IS TOO MUCH BEAUTY

There is too much Beauty
For us to wholly see-
Our ordinary eyes
Feast daily
on Abundances
unperceived.

Into The Dawn

Heart beating against my chest,
I plunge the knife deep into the stranger's heart,
Feeling bones break,
Hearing their crack as they move aside.
The look in the person's face stuck in permanent surprise,
As if it's only in the moment that I'm killing them,
Only the moment that their life begins to leave their body,
That they realize that they're alive.
I leave the knife behind and let them fall to the ground,
As I do I turn and walk through the doorway.

I walk out onto the streets of Paris,
People rushing around,
My eyes light up with joy at the scents, and sounds,
I walk around the corner and he's standing there,
My arms open wide,
My mouth letting out a shriek of happiness,
Of course he'd be here, he always is,
But every time I feel the same excitement,
Every time I run into his arms,
Every time I run home.

As I collide into him,
My tears break out,
Tears of complete release,
Reassurance and love.
This is where I belong.
I open my eyes and look around,
Everyone's here,
The friends with the warmest hearts,
The brightest smiles,
All of them here, for me.

Completing my circle I blink,
In that moment I'm on top of the Great Wall of China,
Most of the same people are running around me,
Playing games of foolish recklessness.
I stand at the edge looking down,
Taking in the entire idea of the wall and it's being.
Breathing in the presence of the past,
Feeling every bit of the present.
A smile grabs hold of my face as his arms slip around me,
But as soon as I look, he's gone.

My joy quickly turns to fear,
Eyes darting to the sky,
Responding to the loud scream of something monstrous,
The beast flies overhead,
Barely high enough to pass over the trees,
A dragon?
My mind races, trying to connect the dots,
As he swoops back, his talons out stretched ready to scoop me up.
Clasped in his grip we fly higher and higher,
And suddenly, I'm falling.

The Earth comes rushing towards me,
I close my eyes in desperate attempt to wish myself away.
A calm rushes over me and I hear the gentle sound of the ocean,
I look down and realize I'm soaring above the crystal blue water,
My arms are outstretched as I fly farther and farther,
Seagulls surround me ignoring my presence as if I were one of them,
Again I am happy, peaceful,
Gliding down to the water, I graze my hand on its surface,
The sound echoing in my ears,
And just like that I'm back.

I'm standing on the ground again,
My friends around me once more,
Only this time in a vast field,
With bright summer colors,
Flowers, birds, and laughter fill the empty spaces,
I realize I'm in his arms,
I look up at him and smile a confused smile,
He just laughs and spins me around in a delicate circle,
Stopping me as I face him,
A bright light interrupts the scene, small at first, then consuming everything.

Blinking away the pain I look around,
I'm in an empty room,
Laying on the floor,
I strain to stand up only to realize I can't move,
Fear overtakes me once again,
A figure appears in the corner of my eye, laughing.
It slinks towards me, the grimace on its face shining through its darkness,
It starts to melt to the floor, still coming towards me,
Slowly, it covers me, a lead blanket of sorrow,
I clench my eyes closed and scream.


I'm falling now.
Not from the sky,
But into a cave.
An endless abyss expanding below me.
I hear the excited scream of a familiar voice,
'Pull the string, ' They yell at me.
I fumble at my shoulders and pull what ends up being a parachute.
Relief floods over me and I let out a holler of adrenaline,
As I reach the bottom I find myself surround by whales.

Just then my parachute is replaced with a tank,
My mouth covered with a mask,
I suck in the oxygen and swim up to one of the creatures,
Slowly reaching out my hand, placing it next to the animal's eye.
Its size overwhelms me and I jerk my hand back as its head moves.
They swim off and I am left in the middle of the ocean,
Nothing but blue on every side, and nothing but blue above.
So much beauty, so much unknown wonder,
I swim to the surface,
Removing my mask and breathing the fresh air.

A beach ball flies over me,
And I feel the impact of a splash on the back of my head,
I whirl around, already knowing who it was,
I return the attack with an attack of my own.
Then quickly dodging their counterattack,
I grab a beach ball and throw it over my shoulder,
With their defenses down I face them,
Laughing and splashing I approach them and launch myself onto their shoulders,
Pushing the both of us underwater,
As I break the surface again the scene is quiet.

I'm in a lake, the moon shining bright,
I hoped that I wasn't alone, and I wasn't.
I hoped the person would be him, and it was.
He smiled as he walked through the water towards me.
Stopping just in front of me, reaching for my hands.
Fingers intertwined in mine he steps closer,
His forehead rests on mine,
His voice ringing in my ears, then he goes silent,
He frees a hand and traces the curves of my face,
Encouraging me too look up at him, he steals a kiss.


My eyes close and we're dancing,
I hesitate to open my eyes, knowing I would find a different place,
Though he's still the one with me so I feel safe enough to peak out of my shell,
The ball room is full, obviously a special occasion,
On either side of us there are two other couples dancing, the rest of the floor is still,
The music starts then,
Forming the soundtrack to our movements,
Step, step, turn, step, step, turn,
I memorize the feeling of each breath we take,
Knowing it most likely won't last long.

The music plays on, we dance on,
Slowly the music turns to a repetition of chords,
Growing louder and more abrasive.
The people around don't seem to notice, though,
So thinking it to just be in my head I go along with it,
Continuing with the memorized choreography,
Since the music no longer matches.
The room becomes dim, almost fading away.
I stop dancing and hug him tight,
Knowing that it's goodbye, for now.

As the last part of the scene fades to black,
He kisses my forehead, the feeling imprinted on my skin,
I smile, and let the rest fade out.
The sound that had started continues to pound in my ears.
I'm laying on something soft,
Wrapped in the warmth and comfort of familiarity.
My heart is slowed, my breathing faint,
I replay the experiences again in my head before opening my eyes once more,
To be greeted by the start of more, different, adventures, but I lay there still,
Wondering what I'll dream of tonight.

Lord Of The Canvas

This canvas burns on my chest like a cart on the road,
Butter would melt and sell my cause for a price;
Building chemicals came from the right and left,
Cards were chins to rest on, cards mattered to some.

By the cake of splendid chalk and wine and cheese,
The camera in our eyes adjusts the way we eat;
A button pressed is a button too much of the luck
That is hidden in this church of rights.

Let change be a master of the certain events,
There strives a little party of the lords of the manor.

Grandma Knew What She Put Into the Oven

Crime is rampant
Children are out of control
Corruption is mainstream
Mental chaos is the norm...
And the people say
How could this be?
Where were they upon this delivery?
'Someone' had to want what's going on!
If they did not...
These things would not exist!
People only have what they want.
When did it occur to them,
These disturbances were not of their making?
Even grandma knew what she put into the oven!
She had to!
Sometimes I was there when she took it out!
She might have left the stove on once or twice...
But someone was always there to turn it off!

Think Too Much

The smartest people in the world
Had gathered in los angeles
To analyze our love affair
And possibly unscramble us
And we sat among our photographs
Examined every one
And in the end we compromised
And met the morning sun
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much
They say the left side of the brain
Dominates the right
And the right side has to labor
Through the long and speechless night
And in the night
My father came to me
And held me to his chest
He said there's not much more that you can do
Go on and get some rest
And i said yeah
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much
Maybe i think too much

It's All Too Much

It's all too much, it's all too much
When i look into your eyes, your love is there for me
And the more i go inside, the more there is to see
It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much
Floating down the stream of time, of life to life with me
Makes no difference where you are or where you'd like to be
It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around here
All the world's a birthday cake,
So take a piece but not too much
Set me on a silver sun, for i know that i'm free
Show me that i'm everywhere, and get me home for tea
It's all to much for me to see
A love that's shining all around here
The more i am, the less i know
And what i do is all too much
It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much
It's too much.....it's too much
Too much too much too much (fade to end)

Too Much Monkey Business

Running to and fro,
Hard working at the mill,
Never failed at the mill,
There come a rotten bill.
Aw too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved again.
Salesman talking to me,
Trying to run me up a creek,
Says you can buy it, go on try it,
You can pay me next week.
Aw too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved again.
Blonde hair, good-looking,
Trying to get me hooked and married
Get a home, settle down by the book.
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved again.
Been to yokohama, baby,
Fighting in the war,
Army bunk, army chow,
Army clothes, army car.
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved again.
Same thing every day,
Getting up, going to school.
No need for me complaining,
My objection's overruled.
Aw too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved again.
Working in the filling station,
Too many tasks,
Wipe the windows, check the oil,
Check the tires, dollar gas?
Aw too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
Don't want you by the race,
Get away and leave me.
[original has one more verse:
Pay-phone, something's wrong,
Dime gone, will mail.
Oughta sue the operator
For telling me a tale.
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business
For me to be involved with you

The race is to the swift

Happy be or sad, like a long journey
Life is, and burden man aught to carry,
Heavy— let thine step be slow and steady,
That ye should stumble not in a hurry,
Old Buddhist wisdom, feeling its oats, said;
Be steady and firm like a mountain wall,
Deep like ocean, mild like moon to thine stead,
Echoed Jain thought; it matters none at all
How slow ye walk long as ye walk the way,
A Confucius creed more chaos did spread;
In too much of hurry, ye go astray,
Slow down to no movement, reach there un-sped,
Pondered Osho; the race, said Christ, not to the swift,
Shall thine goal gift; but world still races to the lift!
_____________________________________________ __________
This is a tongue-in-cheek kind of sonnet. Thoughts presented
are serious, but the underlying tone is light. All spiritual
wisdom advises men to move slow and steady to the goal, and
yet the world seems to be in a mad hurry; it's a rat race in
every field, as the Volta, just half of the last (14th) line suggests.
The end couplet reflects the rush to conclude, and in the
process, could not afford to be brief, ending up two syllable
longer!

We have all noticed, an orderly queue awaiting arrival of the
elevator in a tall building. But the moment the lift reaches the
spot, everyone starts pushing forward in a scramble. This is what
I call automobile culture, what we all do while driving on a busy
city road— pushing. This is what ‘race to the lift' means. Today
we admire the swift rabbit, not the slow and steady turtle of the
popular Panchatantra story.

Too Much On My Mind

Too much on my mind, just too much on my mind (repeat 4x)
[charlie brown]
My mind, ready to go, its time
I gotta gotta know, where Im going in l-i-f-e
A constant headache for charlie b
But I take an asprin and sleep
For a bit, then I dream about making more hits
Wake up, its not funny
The rent is due and I dont got the money
The landlord says get out
Sorry to hear that, no doubt
I work for a jerk that cant understand
Pride and soul cause Im a man
Minimum wage in the age of the future
Move too slow, damn, it might shoot ya
Make fools out of me and you
I sit relax and just continue
To (to) think (think) that there is
Just too much on my mind
Too much on my mind, just too much on my mind (repeat 2x)
[dinco d]
Got up this morning (too much)
Still sleepy and yawning (too much)
My stomach is growling (too much)
The bus is crowding (too much)
I told my boss Im getting paid (too less)
So I quit, and sit with my last check
I go to the mall and cant get fresh
For 99 dollars and 95 cents
Plus, I dont want to hear it
Theres too much on my mind and I can hear it
Calling for the d-i-n-c-o
Here comes my girl, wait, I gotta go
Nah, Im not running, Ill just say no
And go and tell my homeboy jerell
He cant spell but he knows, relief
(he cant spell but he knows relief)
Too much on my mind, just too much on my mind (repeat 4x)
The mind is more delicate, more action than a predicate
You think of things that are never thought of and then settle it
Do this (do that) go here (go there)
Its too much on my mind
The mind is more delicate, more action than a predicate
You think of things that are never thought of and then settle it
No money (no job) no home (no life)
Its too much on my mind
Too much on my mind, just too much on my mind (repeat 4x)
[busta rhymes]
Aw baby, what a feeling, what a way to feel when youre down and beat
Youre all by yourself in a little corner, no one to help you
Yo, its like this, you know sometimes you gotta stand up strong for self
Do the little things on your own
Strive hard, strive for perfection
And Im a tell you one thing
Leaders of the new school, definitely gonna rule things
>from our beginning time, till forever, peace

Run Crying Into The Night

Addictions in the home, parents fight

A child runs crying into the night

Hand over her mouth, he's there to rape

Woman runs crying into the night

Bullets are flying, kids are dying

Mothers run crying into the night

Bombs are dropping, houses exploding

People run crying into the night

The world turns evil, fear is building

Vicki runs crying into the night

Too Much On My Mind

Theres too much on my mind,
Theres too much on my mind,
And I cant sleep at night thinking about it.
Im thinking of the time,
Theres too much on my mind,
It seems theres more to life than just to live it.
Theres too much on my mind,
And there is nothing I can say.
Theres too much on my mind,
And there is nothing I can do
About it,
About it.
My thought just weigh me down,
And drag me to the ground,
And shake my head till theres no more life in me.
Its ruining my brain,
Ill never be the same,
My poor demented mind is slowly going.
Theres too much on my mind,
And there is nothing I can say.
Theres too much on my mind,
And there is nothing I can do
About it,
About it.
Theres too much on my mind.

That Day

That day, that day
What a mess what a marvel
I walked into that cloud again
And i lost myself
And i'm sad, sad, sad
Small, alone, scared
Craving purity
A fragile mind and
A gentle spirit
That day, that day
What a marvelous mess
This is all that i can do
I'm done to be me
Sad, scared, small, alone, beautiful
It's supposed to be like this
I accept everything
It's supposed to be like this
That day, that day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all i see and
I'm tired and i'm right
And i'm wrong
And it's beautiful
That day that day
What a mess
What a marvel
We're all the same
And no one thinks so
And it's okay
And i'm small
And i'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
But it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect
That day, that day
When everything was a mess
And everything was in place
And there's too much hurt
Sad, small, scared, alone
And everyone's a cynic
And it's hard and it's sweet
But it's supposed
To be like this
That day, that day
When i sat in the sun
And i thought and i cried
'cause i'm sad, scared, small
Alone, strong
And i'm nothing
And i'm true
Only a brave man
Can break through
And it's all okay
Yeah, it's okay

Its Not Too Late

(david jones)
Immortal music (bmi)
Lead vocal: davy jones
If I had a penny for every time I thought about you
I would be a millionaire
I would send you flowers each day
And I would show you in every way
Just how much I really care
The summer sun and the winter snow,
The autumn leaves let the spring rains know
Just how much I need your love
And if I knew that my time was near,
And you were there,
I would have no fear
Your name would be my dying prayer
Its not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind my love
Before we run aground
Its not too late
To say that I love you
And its not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too
(its not too late)
If I was a rich mans son
I would work till the day was done
Just to prove my love was true
I would take you for my wife
And I would love you all my life
And I would never leave or be untrue
Its not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind my love
Before we run aground
Its not too late
To say that I love you
And its not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too
(its not too late)
You know our future and your feelings
And the love that I have for you
Theyre always in my heart and on my mind
A never ending love affair
Well go together everywhere
Our love will last till the end of time
You know our future and your feelings
And the love that I have for you
Theyre always in my heart, theyre on my mind
A never ending love affair
Well go together everywhere
Our love will last till the end of time
Its not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind my love
Before we run aground
Its not too late
To say that I love you
And its not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too
(its not too late)
Its not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind my love
Before we run aground
Its not too late
To say that I love you
And its not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too
(its not too late)
Its not too late (its not too late)
Its not too late (its not too late)
Its not too late to turn this ship around

Too Late To Say Goodbye

What I had to flaunt
Has come back to haunt
Like a restless wind
And the best of times
That were left behind
They come blowing in
No ones pushing me
Through that door
But it might as well be
A forty-four in the night
Its too late to say goodbye
Im all out of lies
Its too late to say goodbye
How can I resist
One more strangers kiss
Should the thrill be gone
And if I must refrain
Will I wind up the same
As the jealous dogs?
From this day forward
Could be too long
But crossing the border
Would be so wrong, and youre right
Its too late to say goodbye
Ive run out of lies
And its too late to say goodbye
I know that youre right
Its too late to say goodbye
Im all out of lies
Its too late to say goodbye
This feeling wont die
Its too late to say goodbye
I cant watch you cry
Its too late to say goodbye
