Doin' Alright

Yesterday my life was in ruin
Now today I know what I'm doin'
Gotta feelin' I should be doin' alright
Doin' alright
Where will I be this time tommorow
Jumping with joy or sinking in sorrow
Anyway I should be doin' alright
Doin' alright
Should be waiting for the sun
Anyway I've got to hide
Going back to where the skies are blue
Going home to find the one

The last I say and that's a promise

To
A lady vase with a handle resting on a hip
Another one plucking a dried out flower out
With round sad tits clever and sad enough
To look know what lies below
Pull it out as strongly as you can
Won't even remember when the end has started
Pull it out as strongly as you can
The waterless rotten root
Even if it sadly hurts
To
An x rayed lady clock choked by the hours
With cat's eyes glowing in dark faceless dims
Ears pierced tail tense waiting
For the one singing ‘you know I'm no good'
Double facing the sounds
To
A teenage violent reckless spoilt sad
Always in some stage of development
No one ever knew how to take
No one ever knew how to
Throw it back into your mind
That thinks only on Monday
To
A little girl dressed in clothes nineteen seventy something
With a white dog headless barking at the moon
Who liked to draw and was scared of drawings
Pull her out come on she was for too long inside
Spent time body painting the eyes of the Moon
The one always late when it's early and rise to shine
To
Languages invented those learnt and forgotten
Grammars splintered on the tip of the tongue
Vocabularies sapience silent split
Symbolic ideographic you childhoodless adopted
Pull them out bring them back to their mother oceans hearts
To
All those you loved who loved you
Who knew who never knew how to love you
Who you never knew how to love
Pull them out come on there's something they want to say
To bless accuse curse you tell you they knew you loved
But never really knew what went wrong
To
All those numberless things that sit inside
Roomfuls of sorrows none will ever talk to
None will ever mention again
None will ever say taboo frozen burning in ice
Cold when they grow it's because they'd given you up
Long before you even suspected

Life Was Easier

Daring myself I think back to when I was young.
When every hurt could be healed with hugs and ice cream.
When problems were hardly dilemmas.
When a broken heart was a skinned knee
And daddy would kiss it and make it better.
When depression was missing a stuffed animal
And mommy would cuddle me and make it better.
When sexual harassment was a boy pulling your hair
And brother would beat him up and make it better.
Skinned knees are easier to fix than broken hearts.
Losing a stuffed animal is better than losing a love.
A boy pulling your hair is easier to solve than rape.
Why can’t we go back to the time when life was better,
When I didn’t know how hard it was.

Mom! I Repent For The Rest Of Life

Mom!
When my wings were strong and valiant
In fanciful flights into the fantasies of life
I miserably failed to gauge the pain
On your frail quills weakened on our dear cause
Nor could even grasp that i was ever
Both your strength and weakness
And I was dishonestly ignorant of
What you aspired for at the fag end of life
A few precious moments of my proximity every week
As a mild breeze to your sweating soul-
With my limbs now growing weak
I feel guilty to my core
AND REPENT FOR THE REST OF LIFE.

I Didnt Know What Time It Was

Richard rodgers / lorenz hart
Once I was young --
Yesterday, perhaps --
Danced with jim and paul
And kissed some other chaps.
Once I was young,
But never was naive.
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve.
And now I know I was naive.
Refrain
I didnt know what time it was
Then I met you.
Oh, what a lovely time it was,
How sublime it was too!
I didnt know what time it was
You hold my hand.
Warm like the month of may it was,
And Ill say it was grand.
Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand tosee your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say Im all your own.
I didnt know what time it was
Live was no prize.
I whanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.
Im wise,
And I know what time it is now.
Verse 2
Once I was old --
Twenty years or so --
Rather well preserved:
The wrinkles didt show.
Once I was old,
But not too old for fun.
I used to hunt for little girls
Up my immaginary gun.
But now I ain for only one!
Refrain
I didnt know what time it was
Then I met you.
Oh, what a lovely time it was,
How sublime it was too!
I didnt know what time it was
You hold my hand.
Warm like the month of may it was,
And Ill say it was grand.
Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand tosee your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say Im all your own.
I didnt know what time it was
Live was no prize.
I whanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.
Im wise,
And I know what time it is now.

Youngblood

I know what she's doin'
I saw it comin from the start
I've watched her in motion
She's aimin right for my heart
Guess i should know better
But it's hard to refuse
She's got it down to the letter
*youngblood,
Struttin' like a school girl
Cocksure, got no doubt on her mind
She always gets what she wants
She gonna get what she needs*
Oooh, eyes like crazy diamonds
Shinin' like a cat in the dark
The way she's put together
Always seems to tear me apart
Sneakin up behind me
She pulls me deeper under the
Spell of her..
( * repeat)
She, she's not yet a woman
But she's got the power,
If you allow her
Under your skin, she's tyin' her
Love to your soul
Soon she'll be takin' control
She's just a
( * repeat)
With her youngblood, she wraps
It all around you
So tight, that i'm powerless to leave
I'm burning hot
Just get a shot of that
Youngblood, youngblood

HOE HOUSE...by talile ali

HOE HOUSE

IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS
WHEN DOIN IT RUNS AMUCK
HOE HOUSE

THE MOMMA LIKES TO DO IT
SO DO HER LITTLE DUCKS
HOE HOUSE

SHE DOESN'T WANT THEM DOIN
SOME LAZY KNOTHEAD CHUMPS
HOE HOUSE

THEN SHE GETS ALL DRUNKED UP
AND DOES SOME LAZY BLIND KNOTHEAD CHUMP
HOE HOUSE

THE CHILDREN THEY CAN HEAR HER
WHEN SHE STARTS TO WAIL
HOE HOUSE

DOING ANY FELLA
BEFORE SHE GOES TO HELL
HOE HOUSE

SHE WILL DO'EM NASTY
IN THE RAW OR IN THE MOUTH
HOE HOUSE

WHILE HER BABIES LISTEN
THEY DRESS AND LEAVE THE HOUSE
HOE HOUSE

SHE TELL'S THEM 'IT'S NOT NOTHING'
'JUST A LIL FIX'
HOE HOUSE

THEY COULD NEVER BELIEVE HER
SHE'S JUST UP TO HER TRICKS
HOE HOUSE

WHAT THEY WANT TO KNOW IS
IF THEY GET FUCKED, I SWEAR
HOE HOUSE

THESE BABE'S THEY JUST CANT HELP YOU
CAUSE THEY ARE RUNNING SCARED
HOE HOUSE

YOU'RE THEIR GOD, THEIR TEACHER
THEIR EVER SHINING LIGHT
HOE HOUSE

THE SUCCUBUS IN SEX
THE BLIND, AND DICK, AND SCARY
HOE HOUSE

IS SHE SO SURPRISED
WHEN HER GIRL'S ARE DEAD AND BURIED
HOE HOUSE

WHATS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE
AINT SO GOOD WHEN THEY'RE DUCKLINGS
HOE HOUSE

DON'T BE SO SURPRISED
WHEN THE FRUIT IS REALLY RANCID
HOE HOUSE

WITH THE FELLA'S IN THEIR RAGE
FINISHED HER STOUT BEFORE THEY LANCE IT
HOE HOUSE

SHE'S SO PISSED
HER BABE'S JUST CAN'T HELP HER
HOE HOUSE

WITH A BUNCHA SAD JACKS
HANGIN ALL AROUND TO ENHANCE HER
HOE HOUSE

THEY CAN SMELL THE BREWERY
WAITING TO GET POUND
HOE HOUSE

CHILDREN CAN ONLY SEE
WHAT THEY LEARN AND WHAT THEY FOUND
HOE HOUSE

IF MOM IS DEEP INTO DOING IT
THE GIRLS WILL TRY AT LEAST
HOE HOUSE

YOU DON'T NEED TO LOSE THEM
THE'RE STILL NEW TO THE FEAST
HOE HOUSE

I LIVED IN A HOE HOUSE
I DON'T HAVE A LOT
THERE'S NOT A SINGLE THING
I CAN SAY TO MAKE IT STOP

TO ALL THAT LOVE HOEING,
THE BLOWING, AND WHAT NOT
THE LUST FOR NOT GROWING
IS ALL THAT THEY'VE GOT

IT WAS MY BIGGEST FEAR
EVERY NIGHT, EVERY YEAR
CAUSE IN EVERY SINGLE ROOM
MY GIRLS ARE NOW DOING IT, IT'S CLEAR

WHAT CAN I SAY?

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE THEM THAT WAY!

SO IF YOU SEE THAT YOU
ARE LIVING LIKE ME
HOE HOUSE

GRAB UP ALL YOUR BABIES
AND LEAVE THIS INSANITY
HOE HOUSE

Alone

Im all alone
In the dark
You cant see me
Falling apart

You cant hear my lonely cries
You cant wipe away the tears from my eyes

You cant try to comprehend
The feelings that I have, the hurt my heart feels.
Theres no end.

You can't read my crying eyes
Or my heart that sets here and sighs,
Waiting for the one to try
to tell me my life is alright.

You cant cure the wounds in my mind
As I close my eyes and see the things from my live
things Iwish no one to see.

You cant see how many times Ive wished to die
Or how many tears have fallen from my eyes.

Dance The Slow Music, The Sandstorm Swirls

The sandstorm swirls, pebbles and sand
Hitting dour walls
Dance, dance the slow music
Elements appeasing music
Music appeasing elements

Pulse and body and sand
The music is one with the sand that whirls
Hide, hide the face that burns
Close, close the eyes that burn
Because of the storm in the city
No more passion, no more pity
There were mirages with shimmering paths
There were trodden truths and treacherous theories
And home's horizons far, far away.

Dance the slow music
Cease the howling wind, the phantoms
Of the sand that can speak with strange gifts
The old man on his rope-bed with bleary eyes
Remembers and speaks

Of old forgotten things; some people listen
Waiting for the wind to fall

Sand will, leaves will fall, trees that bend
Life stands still, dance the slow music, the sandstorm swirls
Wait and heed nature's call.

Wild Willing & The Innocent

They dont seem to sound right, I have put them in [ ].
/whos/ [hes] dressed to kill, out to thrill
Waiting for you tonight
Got my ear down to the ground
Waiting for the warning sound
Somethings got to bite
* and I m looking for a wild rose
In the heat of the night
Waiting for a show
Looking for a wild rose
In the heat of the night
Waiting for a show
** and the wild, the willing and the innocent
Are down, down in the jungle tonight
As the jackal tracks every step you make
Watching, waiting for the one chance to bite
Time was right, a satin light
In the final dangerous game
/trap set,/ [attracted] in the net
Feel my hands start to sweat
Ooh Im taking aim
Repeat *
Repeat **
[instrumental]
Cold black steel, your last meal
The hand of fate has come
Phone taps, blueprint maps
Making my nerve ends snap
/public enemy number one/ [call me again Ill be your number one]
Repeat *
Repeat **

She Sinful Or Wild

All or nothing at all
her father had said
and it seemed right

until she met Harpoon
and he seemed her
Mr Right the one she

had been waiting for
the one she'd dreamed
about but then it all

went wrong and he
became Mr Wrong
and oh yes that was

the downfall that was
the way to her deep
depression and that

episode in the bath
when she tried to
drown herself as her

mother had before her
and she discovered her
as a child coming home

from school and the
door was ajar and when
she went in there was

her mother with her
wrists slit and blood
and her mother drowned

and dead and now sitting
there in her mother's
chair her father some

place her husband poking
some other and all or
nothing at all seemed all

there was left apart from
the few books on the shelf
the Bill Burroughs her mother

had read and left and that
Bukowski book she'd found
in some second shop and the

battered Bible which her
father had beat her about
the head and backside with

as a child when her father
had been boozing or she
had been sinful or wild.

Favorite Song

What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Why don't you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along
with you tonight

Everything is alright
I will see you tonight
Everything you want
is in your hands
And I can't help you decide
The battles you fight inside
and what hurts you
you don't understand

and it feels like there is nothing right
and its all the same to you anyways

What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Why don't you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along
with you tonight

The better place you wished for
is just outside your front door
still it never seemed so far away
Summer gave no reward
Until this day was dreamed for
wait to feel the sunlight
on your face

and it feels like there is nothing right
and its all the same to you anyways

What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Why don't you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along
with you tonight

You never know what to say
So you run in your hideaway
I see the shadow falling in the summer sun
So you never know what to say
It doesn't matter anyway
You'll heal inside
You'll feel this time

And if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Why don't you open up your heart
and hold on tight
And if everything was wrong
I would sing your favorite song
and you would have to sing along
with me tonight

sing along with me tonight [x2]

What if everything was wrong
and no one knew your favorite song

Kiss Me Not

I am waiting for the one,
Whom God had in mind
Before I breathed,

To share in the covenent of marraige,
Of true love and holy matrimony.

This man, pray he be worthy,
Of such a woman as me-
For my price is far above rubies.

I am the apple of God's eye.
My heart is hidden in Christ-
He shall have to seek Him first,
In order to find me.

I am an eternal princess,
For my Father is the King of kings,
And that makes me royalty

Marrage is a sacred deed,
Meant only for one man,
And one woman, to share for life.

It is a beautiful peice of God's Art,
And that is why,
When two are married,
They are pronounced 'man, and wife',
And promise each other,
'Not until death, do us part.'

By taking the leap into marriage,
I am giving my fiance' my heart.

May he respect it wholly,
And treat it with tender love,
May he keep it to his final breathe,
Until our marraige would end in the kiss of death.

Pray I be ready,
For such a time as that.

May my body remain pure,
For it is the Temple of God-

May my Heart be as that of Christ,
For I shall promise it to my Love for life.

May no one touch me,
Till the time is right,
May this rose be not picked,
Until in full bloom-

For I am a rose of tender years,
In this life, hardly begun.

I am maturing in God's sight,
And flourishing under,
The protection of Christ, God's Son.

When the time has come,
And I have found the one,
With whom God has destined me to be,

May I present him with an unscathed rose,
Not withered by others, and the petals not tossed about.

May my heart be ready for so deep a committment,
And my mind be clear,
To love him from the inside, out.

So this be my promise,
And this be my vow -

That I shall remain planted here
Where God has placed me,
Until that special someone comes,
And picks this yelow rose of friendship out.

But alas!
If this promised prize
Be kept until sought-

Then be warned,
Kiss me not!

Yesterday When I Was Young

(charles aznavour / herbert kretzmer)
Spoken : somehow, it seems the love I knew was always the most destructive kind
Yesterday when I was young
The taste of life was sweet
As rain upon my tongue
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze
May tease the candle flame
The thousand dreams I dreamed
The splendid things I planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the time ran away
Yesterday when I was young
So many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my eyes refused to see
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
I never stopped to think what life was all about
And every conversation that I can now recall
Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died
The friends I made all somehow seemed to slip away
And only now Im left alone to end the play, yeah
Oh, yesterday when I was young
So many, many songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my eyes refused to see
There are so many songs in me that wont be sung
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
When I was young

Yesterday When I Was Mad (Hot Tracks)

Darling, you were wonderful, you really were quite good
I enjoyed that, though, of course, no one understood
A word of what was going on, they didn't have a clue
They couldn't understand your sense of humour like I do
You're much too kind
I smiled with murder on my mind
Yesterday, when I was mad
And quite prepared to give up everything
Admitting, I don't believe
In anyone's sincerity, and that's what's really got to me
You have a certain quality, which really is unique
Expressionless, such irony, although your voice is weak
It doesn't really matter 'cause the music is so loud
Of course it's all on tape, but no one will find out
You hated me too
But not as much as I hated you
Yesterday, when I was mad
And quite prepared to give up everything
Admitting, I don't believe
In anyone's sincerity, and that's what's really got to me
Then, when I was lonely
I thought again
And changed my mind
Then we posed for pictures with the competition winners
And argued about the hotel rooms, and where to go for dinner
And someone said: "It's fabulous you're still around today,
You've both made such a little go a very long way"
Yesterday, when I was mad
And quite prepared to give up everything
Admitting, I don't believe
In anyone's sincerity, and that's what's really got to me
Yesterday, when I was mad
And quite prepared to give up everything
Admitting, I don't believe
In anyone's sincerity, and that's what's really got to me
Then, when I was lonely
I thought again
And changed my mind

Their age grew like a fountain from the ground, or like a steeple.

Quatrain #109 - Life was really meant to be easy.....

Life was really meant to be easy but we have complicated it so much
those things we say and do in ignorance all have their effect as such.
When our life revolves around truth, love and purity in thought, word and deeds
then everything comes to us most naturally in good time covering all our needs.

If Life Was A Mega Lotto

If life was a mega lotto
And we all had sure numbers
What a mess it will be so
When we are all the winners!

No one to order from
No one to serve our meals
As millionaires we become
Our pride will thus reveal.

No one to shop for food
Or wash the car and fill it
Our wealth may not be good
All work we now forfeit.

Life Was Zero

Life was zero
But started with one
Went up the hill top
Journey remained non stop

It was all we could do as best
Now was the time to rest
Enjoy the fruit and spend the time
But where was the peace any time?

So far it has remained adventurous
Now it should not remain continuous
One must take deep breath and spread the leg
'So far life was successful' must bear the tag
