Eric's Appetite

Eric the Red was a Viking cannibal
He'd never eat an animal
But he could've eaten a Norse.

The bathroom was like a sanctuary

As a teenager
the bathroom was
like a sanctuary.

A place where
in privacy
I could in nudity
reflect on life

and soak in hot water
and wash every thing dirty
away from me.

I was undisturbed until
my mother married again
and one of my stepsisters
had a small girl
who used to follow me

and when I was eighteen
and she was about thirteen.
time and time again
she somehow
unlocked the bathroom
and walked in on me.

From where I shouted her out
in anger and shock
and wasn’t amused
to get a shouting back
from a step father
who wasn’t a dad to me
and didn’t see
anything wrong with it.

Thinking back
it might have been something
in her genetics
or a lack of good moral standing,

since her mother (my ex step sister)
who was quite beautiful,
in vain tried to seduce my brother
but never tried
to set that snare for me.

Red was the Color' (1947 Riots)

Track was Red...

Train was Red...

Hands were Red

Eyes were Red..

Poeple were Red..

Earth was Red

What was Red?

Red was the Blood

Cries were unheard

Pain was feelingless

Grief was unbearable

Religions were different

People were different

'Kill him' he is a Sikh

'Murder him' he is a Muslim

'Ruin him' he is a Hindu

'Rape her' she is not our's..

'Tear off her clothes'

Naked women were in the streets

Helpless women were in the streets..

Helpless they were all...

who was naked?

Humanity was naked...

Who was weeping?

God was weeping

Who had lost?

Love and Brotherhood had lost..

Where was 'Aman'? (Aman=Peace)

Aman was no where..

Religions were different

People were diferent

But God was the same

HE was the one in the all...............(but everyone had forgotton)

But One thing was same

That COLOR WAS THE SAME

RED WAS THE COLOR...

The red millipedes

When I was a kid
I touched the red millipedes

The Red Barn

There was once...
a red barn..
And there
was nothing in
it.

All there was
in the red
barn was just
hay.

And that was all
there was in
there.

The poor red barn
was on its own.
Nobody owns it.

So the red barn
is by itself.

The Red Light

Zooming through the mist
I missed the red light
And zoomed through the junction
The junction of chance and fate

When the yellow was flashing
I just started speeding
On the street of fate
No I never believed in chance

So I missed the red
And crossed the avenue of chance
Nah I cannot turn back
Because fate is a one way street....!

[To my foolish brain]

The Red Thing

You wandered away from me and left me lonely,
So do bear your own consequences over there with your iniquity;
And like the red thing that i saw in your room last night,
For my hope is still in the hands of the Creator.

The tip of the pit is now like the dub of the bud,
But your gum left behind in the mug will never entice me;
For the gel on your right leg was like the loop in the pool!

The sky was blue

The sky was blue today.
Sun light glinted on my eye lids and bare stretching branches.
Along the railway embankment, though it is early spring,
the spindly matted trees, silhouetted against the cloudless sky,
glistened a golden russet red.
Melodious song rung out from the hedgerows and,
as I walked,
the wind caressed my face.
Today the sky was blue and nature held my heavy heart
in her tender warm embrace.

As The Red Wine Into The Cup Is Poured

Christ the Lamb upon the alter stone.
Christ the sacrifice to atone.
Christ's blood, the wines a token.
Christ the bread that was broken.

As the grape was crushed to make the wine
so Christ was crushed for sins of mine.
As the red wine into the cup was poured
so Christ for me His blood outpoured.

As the bread was broken that we share
so Christ was broken upon the cross there.
'Father forgive, ' I hear Him cry
so I could live He was willing to die.

The Blue And The Red

Red's my soul
Because of the pain
You let me on the blue road.
But this road was glowing.
Blue, blue like the roof
Of my house, like the tears
Which ran down your neck.
Red was your neck when
I touched the curve of your shoulder.
Red like your eyes after your tears.
But your eyes, before they carressed
My loving heart, your eyes were blue.
You drove in compact sreets of Red Hall.
Furtive memories. Blue furtive memories.
Feeling blues. You read in my thought.
Blue's my soul. Red your dress,
Walking on the village green.

Just As The Tide Was A Flowing

[ music: traditional/lyric: arranged by 10,000 maniacs ]
On one morning
In the month of may
When all the birds
Were singing
I saw a lovely maiden stray
Across the fields at break of day
She softly sung her roundelay
The tide flows in
The tide flows out
Twice every day returning
Her cheeks were red
Her eyes were brown
Her hair in ringlets hanging down
Upon her face to hide the frown
Just as the tide was a flowing
The tide flows in
The tide flows out
Twice everyday returning
A sailors wife at home must bide
She halted heavily she sighed
He parted from poor me , a bride
Im widowed by the sea she cried
Just as the tide was a flowing
The tide flows in
The tide flows out
Twice every day returning

The Waving of the Red

It is a sad and cruel fate the country’s coming to,
And there’s no use in striking, ‘so what are we to do?’
“I know what we could do, but then, there might be traitors near,
And things are running in my head that only mates should hear!”
The world cannot go on like this, in spite of all that’s said,
And millions now are waiting for – the Waving of the Red.

“Last night as I lay slipping out a vision came to me;
A girl with face as fair and grand as ever man might see –
Her form was like the statues raised to Liberty in France,
And in her hand a blood-red flag was wrapped around a lance.
She shook the grand old colour loose, she smiled at me and said;
“Go bid your brothers gather for the Waving of the Red.”

The Red Thread of Destiny

entangled with no escape,
it connects us
intwined with one thing
one destiny
it holds, with strength greater than ten thousand men,
but it seems as fragile as glass
you can't escape
it catches you at every twist and turn
always too many steps ahead of you to count

Even if you run fast
in destiny's eyes, you are as frozen as ice
trapped in it's stronghold,
it catches you by the wrist,
ankle
neck
you can't escape
Stuck like a moth in a spider's web
'i'm not letting go'

your destiny,
your true meaning
wrapped around you
the red thread, telling you how fast you were going to run,
what twist or turn you were going to take,
and how far you would go until you finally noticed
there was only one path the whole time
it always knew..
it knew all along

The white rose and the red rose

The white rose and the red rose,
So sisters two were named, yes, named.
The white one was so quiet,
The red one laughed and flamed.
But different was their doing, yes,
When came the time of wooing, yes.
The white one turned so red, so red,
The red one turned so white.

For him the red one favored,
Him father would not bless, not bless.
But him the white one favored,
He got at once his 'Yes.'
The red one now was paling, yes,
With sorrow, psalms, and wailing, yes.
The white one turned so red, so red,
The red one turned so white.

Then father grew so fearful
And had to give his 'Yes,' oh, yes!
With songs and music cheerful
The wedding rang, oh, yes!
And soon sprang children rosen, yes,
In shoes and little hosen, yes.
The red one's, they were white,-and oh,
The white one's, they were red.

The Bullfighter Was A Lady

(words & music by sid tepper - roy c. bennett)
Pedro the bull was a killer
King of the bullfighter ringer
Hed wipe up the floor with each brave matador
And have matador stew for his dinner
He heard the crowd shouting ol
But he met his master that day
The bullfighter was a lady
And it was true love at first sight
Her red cape was waving but pedro was shaking (or shaving? )
He wanted to date her that night
Ol
Pedro the bull he was smitten
First time the love bug had bitten
He once was a mad bull, a wild and a bad bull
But now he was mild as a kitten
The people were starting to hiss
But pedro just wanted to kiss
The bullfighter was a lady
And pedro he liked what he saw
He floated on air with a rose in his hair
As he waltzed with that sweet matador
His fate was a bad one, his tale is a sad one
Its hanging right over her door
Ol!

Under The Red Sky

There was a little boy and there was a little girl
And they lived in an alley under the red sky.
There was a little boy and there was a little girl
And they lived in an alley under the red sky.
There was an old man and he lived in the moon,
One summers day he came passing by.
There was an old man and he lived in the moon,
And one day he came passing by.
Bridge #1:
Someday little girl, everything for you is gonna be new
Someday little girl youll have a diamond as big as your shoe
Let the wind blow low, let the wind blow high.
One day the little boy and the little girl were both baked in a pie.
Let the wind blow low, let the wind blow high.
One day the little boy and the little girl were both baked in a pie.
Bridge #2:
This is the key to the kingdom and this is the town
This is the blind horse that leads you around
Let the bird sing, let the bird fly,
One day the man in the moon went home and the river went dry.
Let the bird sing, let the bird fly,
The man in the moon went home and the river went dry.

Who Drove The Red Sports Car?

Who drove the red sports car from the mansion
And laid upon the grass in summer time
And who done me out high time fashion
And made me read between the lines
And who said follow the man its your only chance
Sit on your throne, you got to make it on your own, on your own
And who said
Look at you, look at you
You got jam on your face and
Who did your homework and read your bible,
And signed your name everyplace and
Who said fortunes untold dont go by gold,
Youre much better known
You got to make it on your own, on your own.
And do you remember, do you remember
I said a long time ago when I came walkin down
I came walkin down
Maggies place
It started comin on rain,
It started comin on rain,
cause I had nothin on but a shirt
And a pair of pants
And I was gettin wet,
And I was gettin wet,
Saturated, saturated
And maggie opened up the window
And jane swung out her right arm,
She said, hi! I said, hi! ya.
Howre your doin baby.
She said, come on in out of the rain
Come on in out of the rain, lord,
Come on in out of the rain.
Sit down by the fireside
Dry yourself,
Do, do it,
I got caught,
I got caught,
In a bag.

Rev On The Red Line

Two in a row, everybody knows
At the green light you rev it on the red line
Been waitin all week to get my wheels on the street
Get my hands on the wheel, slide down in the seat
Shes wearin new colors and runnin pretty good
I got four hundred horses tucked under the hood
But theres no need to panic, its under control
Were aerodynamic and ready to roll
Rev on the red line
Youre on your own
Rev on the red line
Just let it go
Runnin all night on lake avenue
Its a piece of cake
If you know what to do
Youve got to lose a few
til the stakes get high
When the odds are right
You just blow by
And make no mistake, theres women who just wait
For the man and machine with the best time
Rev on the red line
Youre on your own
Feels like a lifetime
But soon youll know
Wasnt long ago I couldve lost my wheels
Had to outrun the law, it was no big deal
I guess they had a grudge, they were hot on my tracks
I had to pay off the judge to get my license back
Now I need to pin those needles, got to feel that heat
Hear my motor screamin while Im tearin up the street
Rev on the red line
Youre on your own
Rev on the red line
Just let it go
Rev on, rev on
Rev on, rev on
Dont think Ill ever learn to slow down
Rev on, youll still be here and Ill be gone
Rev on, rev on

The Red Bandana

She wore a red bandana tied around her head
A bandana of hope is what they said.
The bandana was to hide the pain.
“ and losing her hair she felt so ashamed”.
But the bandana gave encouragement
To the others all around
For in this child love they had found.

On the red bandana was imprinted
LOVE, HOPE, AND FAITH
And their faith would open up the gate.
The gate to research to find the cure
So the pain - these children would not endure.

This child was diagnosed with a brain tumor
At twelve months of age.
Never realizing how her life would change.
But she always had a smile
Which would not go away, and with other children
In the chapel they would pray.

She had became like a star, big and bright.
And had became the “ pediatric brain tumors”
Guiding light.
She is one of many who struggle from day to day
In the hopes that research will find the way.

Every year thousands of children being diagnosed
With cancerous brain tumors
With a short time to live.
But with the doctors research
A longer time they could give.
Advancements are being found every day
We need your financial support and for you to pray.
All the children undergoing numerous surgeries
And chemo therapy
This is not the way it should be.
A five dollar donation is all we ask
That’s not much of a task.
Give all that you can possibly give
And help the beautiful children live.

The Red, Red Rose Of Sanity

There is a red, red rose
that grows outside my pane.
A pane that's never opened and where I must remain.
I don't know how long I've been here
or how many years.
All I seem to remember is a red, red rose appears.
As I look outside the pane that's spaced by iron bars,
the only other thing I see at night time are the stars.
The rose that grows outside my pane
I wish that I could touch.
The feel of it I do not know, but the sight's a red, red blush.

They feed me and bathe me and then they bring me back.
And then they give me shots and a pill they call Prozac.
It's then I become so quiet and no one even knows
that the only thing I live for is to see my red, red rose.
Sometimes I hear them talking as I sit there by the pane.
Most words I do not understand except the word 'insane.'
I think it means that something in my head isn't right.
How'd this happen to me? Why is this my plight?
I close my ears to all they say and see my red, red rose.
I often wish the pane was up so I could use my nose
to smell the sweet, sweet perfume I know the rose must give.
It's the only thought I have that makes me want to live.

Sometimes when the snow appears, my rose is gone away.
It's then I do remember, remember how to pray.
I pray that God will send the sun, the warmth and not the snows,
so I can look out of my pane to see my red, red rose.

Dedicated to all who have been institutionalized
