I Believe You

October 28, 2011

If i said that I believe you
would you take me back again
if i say it can i see you
will you let me be again

i can hear you just a whisper
your words meaning more than you say
i can feel it over distance
touch your breath the miles away

if i say it i believe you
i don’t know what it’s about
i can say it i believe you
though i just can’t figure all us out

i remember lost my reason
sold my life sold my faith
till i saw you coming for me
took my love you took my hate

i can see you i can hear you
i can touch you once again
i can feel you i believe you
will you take me back again

i can say it i believe you
but i don’t know what it’s all about
i can say it i believe you
though i just can’t figure all us out

i believe you



Over You

October 28, 2011

I’m over you
i’m under you
i’m coming through
i’m around you
i’m into you
i’m next to you
i’m above you
i’m over you

we were sitting in the dark
talking words beyond your eyes
waiting for the equinox
but we never realized

i’m over you
i’m beside you
i’m breaking through
i’m calling you
i’m facing you
i’m faking you
away from you
i’m over you

waiting here outside your gate
another brick falls in the game
seven years or seven days
you know the pain is still the same

i’m over you
i’m under you
i’m around you
i’m coming through
i’m next to you
i’m into you
i’m falling through
i’m over you
i’m above you
i’m beside you
i’m breaking through
i’m calling you
i’m facing you
i turn from you
away from you
i’m over you


I Loved One

October 28, 2011

I loved one
i loved two
but i never got
to love you

i loved three
i loved four
but you wouldn’t let me
past your door

i loved five
i loved six
but i couldn’t get
close to it

i loved seven
i loved eight
i loved you once
but it’s too late


Loves Hiding # 2

October 28, 2011

Loves hiding in the basement
loves hiding neath the stairs
loves running down the pavement
loves waiting by the chair

we’re digging up bones
digging up rail yards
digging up steel and concrete glass
we’re digging for time
digging for freedom
digging up dreams that have no past

love running through the station
loves dancing presidents grave
loves moving through the nation
loves waiting empty bed

we’re moving up roads
moving on freeways
moving on time nowhere fast
we’re moving on planes
moving for freedom
moving off dreams that have no past


Say It For Me

October 28, 2011

Your silence now oppresses me
depressing me undressing me
you sit there now without a word
a whisper lost never heard

say it
say it to me
say it
say it for me

how can i speak hands down my throat
how can you be so far remote
why can’t you say the words for me
why can’t you see that i can’t be

i can be just like you
i can play your games too
i sit here now without a word
a whisper lost never heard


Mr Spock

October 28, 2011

I can feel the summers rain
the missile silos empty grain
fields of grass and broken glass
the blacktops across the range

t.v. skies and those strange eyes
consume it all and realize
that heaven waits upon the lies
the billboards and the fame

mr spock beam me up
can’t take no more i’ve had enough
planet earth is going up again

broken roads that roll and flow
to cities where god only knows
the wires and electricity
the power and the gain


When Mercy Strikes

October 28, 2011

When mercy strikes the cannons play
the soldiers dance to the parade
they walk on by the silent men
the silent eyes the knowing grins

rescue me from the despair
cover me from what’s up there
hide me deep inside your nights
save me from when mercy strikes

doors open into cages
releasing human forms and chains
tied down to what we’re facing
dragged down to their dreams


Say It # 22

October 28, 2011

If i  could i
would i  should i
can i  may i
if i  would i
say it for me

if i  will i
i try  but i
how i  my i
am i  if i
say it for me

how can i speak hands down my throat
how can i be so far remote
why can’t you say the words for me
why can’t you see that i can’t be
say it for me

how can i try when you can’t see
don’t you know the words we seek
i can’t say it say it for me
how can i say it say it to me
say it for me
