Cold War Kids

Cold war kids
Fight in the Somalian war in the army
And the Somalian Government use the kids as soldiers
And the Cold war kids
Are trained in the war to kill their enemies
By trowing granades to the other side of somalia where their enemies Are
Their anemies are the American soldiers

Ode to the American Soldiers
for fighting for our Freedom

Support them, pray for them

The Other Side

To those people who spend most of their life
surrounded with worldliness its cares and strife
this piece is dedicated it is my duty to convey
without any effort not to I'd be left in dismay.

One should always let know and be willing to confide
through terms of endearment how to get to the other side.
The world is full of confusion, contradictions and the like
it's only through the midst of this chaos homeward we hike.

Home is that place from where we started our journey, have become estranged
by allurements and attachment to the sense objects, our mind is deranged.
Forced into seduction and by ignorance we ride
the crestwave of illusion away from the other side;
while entertaining and playing host to all those desires,
trying to appease an insatiable horde we burn in its fires.

Seldom do we get an inkling of how far we have gone
away from that place in which the light shone;
our ineffable home too bright for the eyes do hide
bewildering, the mind can't comprehend, beyond, just on the other side.

The mind always reflects that with which it is absorbed in,
a double sided transparent mirror through which the soul goes peering.
The soul is infinite in innumerable ways and sets up its own barriers without limit or cost,
intent on finding, due to forgetfulness, that which it appears as to have lost.
Then proceeds experiencing a finite life in an infinite way
through its own misguided power does this creation hold sway.....

Only after gathering enough data does it ever decide
that it has forsaken its real nature back on the other side.
By ignoring the advice of the guiding voice from within,
coming from a higher source, in ignorance do we swim.

When each of us has reached an all time low
or when fate delivers us a gracious blow,
we start thinking about our current situation
and try to make amends with much expectation.

Alleviating the disgrace which upon our soul is a burden,
retracing our steps back towards harmony and freedom
and so live a life of good works pleasing the Eternal Witness
satisfying our highest conscience the inner voice of stillness.

With each progressive step forward in the right direction we take
an ever increasing joy and peace in our mind and heart we make.
Helping all those who come across our path to be
confident in themselves and just a little more free;
to achieve whatever they cherish or happen to bide
while we continue our journey toward the other side.
By observing a steady discipline daily we find
most things can be accomplished dear in mind.

We can't easily get to the other side with a heavy load
as there already are many unseen obstacles on that road.
We all have each somehow to travel different distances
depending where we start from in current circumstances.
So let's make haste and all acknowledge our aim
that whether we like it or not our goal is the same.

There are many of us here having to play a unique part
when considering others' welfare show a little more heart.
In matters of relationship we should never try and hide
that which to our advantage helps us get to the other side.

Yet when we give with all our heart its from the other side
without any selfish motives or thoughts of gain to hide
we gradually reveal our real nature and true guide
which is realized unmistakably as being the other side.

Love Comes From The Other Side Of Town

(Fred J. Freiling)
When things get bad at home, you don't feel like being alone,
And you find yourself inclined to look around.
For the feelings we once shared are just no longer there,
And love comes from the other side of town.
Where love means just an hour with your stand in,
And not an empty house where love just has been.
Since everything we've built with love was not on solid ground,
Now love comes from the other side of town.
The life I'm livin' now just don't seem right somehow,
But it's the best way to get by that I've found.
There's no love left at home, we're both just hangin' on,
And love comes from the other side of town.
Where love means just an hour with your stand in,
And not an empty house where love just has been.
Since everything we've built with love was not on solid ground,
Now love comes from the other side of town.
Love comes from the other side of town

Where On The Other Side Of Death Does Life Begin Again?

Where on the other side of Death does Life begin again?
Is there a long time to wait, or no time at all?

We are guesses and questions
We are conjectures and speculations-

On the other side
Beyond all the beyonds
Waits who knows what and how
God’s Answer for us.

From the Other Side of Sorrow.

Her name was 'holy' conscience said
and sorrow heaped upon a bed
in vain the search to find by chance
lift her, hold her for their last dance
held hopelessly in crimson time.

A heavenly view: man and wife,
had thought to throw away a life
was only such a little sin
guilt, forever unforgiven
tyranny bleached white finds those condemned.

The other side of sorrow sought
blindly fumbling to find a door
knock and call a familiar name
to light a very steady flame
so famished souls may feed and thrive.

Can you see she's all to me?
Heartbeat and love from the one above
faith has been a steadfast guide
and I along with sorrow sit
among those who have known of it.

Inspired by 'Where there is sorrow there is holy ground'
De Profundis
Oscar Wilde.

The Other Side

So, youre at the end of your wits
The end of your rope
You just cant fix
Everything thats broke
Got to turn it loose, babe
Hey, just let it ride
Cause it aint about pride now
Well, it aint about guilt
Youve just come to a bridge
That you still aint built
Sit down here with me
Ill tell you about the other side
(chorus)
The other side of loneliness
The other side of the blues
There really is a place like this
Where the sun is gonna shine for you
Youll feel that old restlessness
Your tears have all been cried
Youll find your way over this
And youll make it to the other side
Life gets hard
Life gets cold
No matter who you are
Gonna settle on your soul
There comes a time
When you go looking for a place to hide
But one of these days
Youre gonna lift up your head
Whistle up those hell hounds of yours
And make them sit up and beg
Thats when youll be ready
Ready for the other side
(repeat chorus)

The Other Side of the Page

I pass to the other side of the page.
-Pablo Neruda

On the other side of the page
where the last days go,
where the lost poems go,
where the forgotten dreams
breaking up like morning fog

go
go
go

I am preparing myself for death.

I am teaching myself emptiness:
the gambler's hunger for love,
the nun's hunger for God,
the child's hunger for chocolate
in the brown hours
of the dark.

I am teaching myself love:
the lean love of marble
kissed away by rain,
the cold kisses of snow crystals
on granite grave markers,

the soul kisses of snow
as it melts in the spring.

On the other side of the page
I lie making a snow angel
with the arcs
of my arms.

I lie like a fallen skier
who never wants to get up.

I lie with my poles, my pens
flung around me in the snow
too far to reach.

The snow seeps
into the hollows of my bones
& the calcium white of the page
silts me in like a fossil.

I am fixed in my longing for speech,
I am buried in the snowbank of my poems,
I am here where you find me

dead

on the other side of the page.

Just The Other Side Of Nowhere

I come from just the other side of nowhere
To this big time lonesome town.
They got a lot of ice and snow here,
Half as cold as all the people Ive found.
Every way I try to go here seems to bring me down.
Ive seen about enough to know where I belong.
Ive got a mind to see the headlights shining
On that old white line between my heart and home.
Sick of spendin sundays wishing they were mondays
Sittin in a park alone.
So give my best to anyone whos left who ever done me
Any lovin way but wrong.
Tell em that the pride of just the other side o nowheres
Goin home.
Takin nothin back to show there
For these dues Ive paid.
But the soul I almost sold here
And the body Ive been givin away.
Fadin from the neon nighttime glow here,
Headin for the light of day,
Just the other side of nowhere, goin home.
Ive got a mind to see the headlights shinin
On that old white line between my heart and home.
Sick of spendin sundays wishin they were mondays,
Sittin in a park alone.
So give my best to anyone whos left who ever done me
Any lovin way but wrong.
Tell them that the pride of just the other side of nowheres
Goin home.
Just the other side on nowhere, goin home

Can’t transfer to the other side

I am broken, scattered
Can’t simply transfer to the other side
Where more than half of me
Is already there
Less is here
But I cannot really go there
There is not much air.

I am here,
Lonely but alive

Voices From The Other Side

Voices from the other side
coming through
loud and precise

Sometimes they think
they are alive
and we are dead

They get confused
because the living
never seem to live
their life

Making it harder
for them to survive
because they can't
understand why we
are alive and they are dead
when most of us waste our life

The Other Side Of Moon

You are there so close
Yet the desire in me grows
Outbound I search outside
Not knowing where the shadows hide!
I could easily touch your hand
Make with you castles in the sand
It never comes or it is too soon
I wait for the other side of moon!
Shadows vibrate with throbs of pain
It’s over and will never be again
Your face sinks in the morbid ocean of night
The other side of moon goes eternally out of sight!

Jumping To The Other Side Of The Fence

i always love the thought of jumping
to the other side of the fence
where the grass is greener
and the air is fresher

my heart beats for all the excitement
when i will be there
on the other side with you

i ask if you will walk beside me
when i am there finally
but you did not say a word

i know i am not welcome
but i still dream of going there
for other possibilities of loving
and be loved without any condition

at all, not necessarily you,
i am a fast learner, you know.

Other Side of the Fence Always Looks Green

I saw a bird
Sitting in the window
She looked
Calm and cozy
I told her
She was lucky
Could fly in the sky
Go from place to place
See the world swiftly
She replied
Other side of the fence
Always looks green
I have to save myself
From big birds
Preying on me
Human beings always
Trying to catch me
Hot summer, cold winter
Kills many of us
Throughout the day
I have to search for food
Cannot store food
Like you can do
Our nests are weak
Get easily destroyed
In rain and storm
To save my life from
A boy with a catapult
Searching for me
I am hiding
In the window
Near you

The Other Side of the Street

All though my married days I've lived
on the West side of the street.
I have dealt with plows in winter
that buried me knee deep
The West sides' winter sun is scarce
too weak to melt the ice.
So you'll see me out there chipping away
(Miami would be nice)
They get their trash collected first,
while we must wait a day.
I think the mailman likes them too,
He always starts their way.
In Spring their lawns are greener
In summer they have shade.
My back porch boils each afternoon-
no wonder I'm dismayed.
Mayhap I would be famous for
these poems that I excrete
If only I'd had the wit to live on
the other side of the street.

Light On The Other Side

When I come to the dock and sit very still,
I wonder why on earth we fight and kill.
I see a light on the other side flickering to me,
As if to say, youre alright, youll find your way.
The world is so beautiful when Im out here,
Why cant it be the same when were back there?
Above my head, straight ahead,
I see a bird gliding
As if to say, Im alright, Ill find my way.
Windows are shattered,
Streets are battered,
Kids are frightened,
Men are still at war.
Moms are feeling sad,
Dads are feeling bad.
I wanna know, I wanna know
If the worlds gone mad.
Above my head, straight ahead,
I see a bird gliding
As if to say, Im alright, Ill find my way.

On The Other Side

Michael w. smith
Im not how I used to be
When we hung around
Back when it was you and me
Tearin up this town
We used to live our lives running from change
Now we dont see eye to eye
I am not the same
Chorus:
And you wonder where Ive gone
Well, Ive found where I belong
Im on the other side
True - I used to walk your shore
But Im not there anymore
Im on the other side
Years fade like the setting sun
Turning us loose
They give us many ways to run
And many roads to choose
Well, I ran into saving grace
Headed for nowhere
Love showed me another place
And brought me there
Chorus
Why is it hard for you to see
All the changes made in me
Here on the other side
Oh, I could help you understand
And you could join me where I am
I am on the other side

What lies on the other side of a dark moon

My darling says
look how bright is the moon
and the gold
appears on the other side,
of the window pane
where it hangs in a round ball
in the dark night.

It’s as if the stars
tonight are fading away
and every thing in the heaven,
disappears before the bright moon.

We lie on a three quarters bed
and I wonder how many kisses
are still destined for me
and her soft body,
are touching mine
while my hand
glide over her soft round curves.

Her breath tickles my neck
while the night folds around us
and when she disappears into sleep
I am still busy
watching the magical moon
and I wonder what lies on the other side
of a dark moon
and if the sky,
will then have more stars in it,
but the star
that shines the brightest to me
is still in my arms
when the moon disappears
in the early morning.

The Other Side Of Me

Words & music: michael w. smith and wayne kirkpatrick
If they were to write about
The story of my life
They would have to mention you
With every page they'd write
There's another side to every story told
If i were the ocean
You would be the shore
And one without the other one
Would be needing something more
We are the shadow and the light
Chorus:
Always love me
(and) never leave me now
(and) now you are the other side of me
Always love me
(and) never leave me now
(and) now you are the other side of me
I have known the emptiness
Of feeling out of touch
And living life without you here
Would be living half as much
Cause i've a need that only you can fill
If love was mathematical
You'd understand the sum
To the heart's equation
Where one and one makes one
And lonely equals me minus you
Chorus

Going To The Other Side

Going to the other side of the world
I watch the diverse skies and lands;
On a night the stars are glowing
As they are creation’s lamps, near or far.

It is different on this part of the world,
Feeding is a frenzy, animals lurk somewhere;
I also have to search, since the land is sumptuous,
For the lands are delicious, as they grow fruit.

The world is nearer to the stars than you think,
They disappear when the sun reigns with its glory;
I have seen the world, night and day, by travelling
In the wide-world, the fuel needed is tremendous.

Many citizens and natives I have met,
Filling the streets as time goes by,
Making statements for their daily tasks,
And working to pay their rent.

This side of the world cries for exploration,
If I only do not explore the other side as well
For then time is not enough to satisfy the life
And so bring quality of life - worthwhile!
