I Hope You Do Believe Me

The day we first met made a me hard workin man

breaking calloused hands down the best i can

so i hope you do believe me, although this life is never easy

oh, but i crave this road and i love the way you walk


woke up and read an old love note today

changed by old memories but it read just the same

I might’ve skipped the I love you’s but I meant what I said

with no way of knowing that ink turned from lead to gold

Tonight the endless worlds above unfold without a single sound

The air ignites as breathless threads begin to dance above the clouds

a shivering pair breathe crystal air found way up north in houghton lake

I lost it all to falling stars read every freckle on her face

I lost it all to falling stars  reading every freckle on her face

now the days, they roll on

and the leather in our backs can feel so worn

still a gentle hand can start a fire

even when its right down to the wire

when you look to the sky like it renders hope

Do you look up to the sky as if it renders hope?

Or do you look for the eyes of who loves you the most?

or do you look for the eyes of whom you love the most?

do you look?

Out Of This Thing Alive

keep on walking although the waters high

oh, and it’s goddamn freezing and you think you’re gonna die

keep on walking ignore your heavy load

though it weighs upon your mind you can’t sleep at night

just keep on walking and i’ll be at your side

if just a few see just the two of us alright

they might keep on walking and bear some truth outright

Seen the way some people live, kinda want to make it out of this thing alive

if you’ve ever felt like heaven on the inside

but you know you’re just waiting around to die

oh burn my veins and drag my feet beneath me, ‘cause there ain’t no run away

from that shit, boy, no there ain’t no run away

Keep on walking stuck on that junk tonight

oh and you’re goddamn freezing and you think you’re gonna die

keep on walking ignore your heavy load

though it shakes down to the bone when you fall asleep all alone

I’ll keep on walking till i get you in my sights

so longs i roam this roads my home and i’ll be alright

I’ll keep on walking till you’re right back at my side

I saw the look caught in your eye, kinda want to make it out of this thing alive

cant shake the feeling of cold steel against my wrists

they sick the dogs on me might never find a place for me to hide

she sits waiting saving all her time for me but there aint no run away

from that shit, boy, no there aint no run away

Keep on walking although the bails set high

oh and its goddamn freezing and you think you’re gonna die
keep on walking until they open up the gate

You’ll never see a much bluer sky first day you clear those concrete eyes

then keep on walking no turnin’ back to spite the odds

i’ll pray to god for the first time you ain’t forget ‘bout me that night

and you kept on walking and kept me in your sights

See the look caught in my eye, baby i want outta this thing alive

half my life i’ve spent chasing things we’re never meant to find

as if the purpose to my time could fit within my mind

you are the song to drown out noise

the only one for whom my voice sings and there aint no run away

from this shit, boy, no there aint no run away


keep on walking although the waters high

oh, and it’s goddamn freezing baby hold me through the night

keep on walking ignore your heavy load

though it weighs upon your mind you can’t sleep at night

just keep on walking and i’ll be at your side

if just a few see just the two of us alright

they might keep on walking and bear some truth outright

Seen the way some people live, kinda want to make it out of this thing alive

Keep on walking although the water’s high

oh when its goddamn freezing baby hold me through the night

keep on walking we’ll share this heavy load

though it seems to shrink in size long as i know that you’re mine

we’ll keep on walking, like to love you all my life

said you always knew it’d be the two of us, baby aint that right?

We’ll just keep on walking hand in hand in stride

I’ve gotta say must be my day, glad we made it out of that thing alive.

Reprise

there’s no difference between us all

do you see one rise, one will fall

is there any difference

between the stars above, though some dimly lit

each one screaming back into the void

defiance i defy this

no latent fear has power here

defiance i defy this

defiance i defy this

defiance i defy this

all vs. one or one vs. all

do you see one rise, one falls

they will cut us down, stand tall

A Hammer Strikes

wrist locked and bleeding through

serrated edge but nothing new

motion cropped by tyrant cruel

these laws abide psychotic rule

the kings they spit through grinning teeth

drown all truth in burning bleach

whitewashed lies their criminal seed

break our backs to put up their feet

we built them

we’ll burn them down

a hammer strikes

the wheel goes round

watch the spiders spin their webs

weave a tale of us verses them

empty eyes quote threadbare gods

while both sides starve with arms at odds

black or brown or red or white

border war, drug war, left and right

keep ratings up, murder in technicolor

genocide, 8/7 central, tune in tonight!

we built this war

lets burn it down

a hammer strikes

the wheel goes round

hope&love

Well I woke up and burned an old lovenote today
changed by old memories but still read the same
full of i love you's and forever's and things that we meant
with no way of know her ink would be speant in vain, all in vain
just a girl from my past who treated me like trash 
so then I say to myself...

Goddamn i'm a lucky guy, these days she got me feelin so damn high, high
with this birdy on my shoulder I wont ever feel much older 
oh an eastside gal threw a twinkle in my eye

Oh, I won't forget the day we met and I dont regret the day you said 
just friends though I hoped for a turnaround
because you knew me back when I was a wacked out junky 
but you sat right donw next to me and my monkey
and it only took damn near four years to say you loved me
now i say

[CH]

The day we kissed made a hard workin man
breaking calloused hands the best i can
so i hope you do believe me, although this life is never easy
but i crave this road and i love the way you walk

Irene

I’m all out of words

So i’ll lay here until the silence hurts

and when the pain can’t get no worse 

well i’ll let it slide and spill some verse

keep me like a lucky charm 

silver hanging on your arm

on your heart i’ll ever lean, ever

how i love you, Irene 

Canvas and color

dreams of my lover

with all i am i strive to kill the second glances

but would you trust

the tied up tongue of a rambler?

when in our eyes our gaze can say the words that we have left

Keep me like a lucky charm 

silver hanging on your arm

on your heart i’ll ever lean, ever

how i love you, Irene

What You Do To Me

all my fears

dissolved on the day that my love went away

to be found once again with a friend in a cafe and 

all my dreams came true, could it be true?

i hear music every time our eyes meet

and, oh! what do you do to me?

it’s better than fantasy or all my wildest dreams

and you catch me looking west and gone, west and gone

catch me resting on a road that’s been long, this road’s been long

all my tears 

in a room locked away though she’s aiming to trade

with a look and a sigh oh we laughed until we cried and

all my dreams came true, could it be true?

i hear music every time our eyes meet

and, oh! what do you do to me?

it’s better than fantasy or all my wildest dreams

Don’t Lose Sight

how many bruises never heal?

black and blue may dim or darken what is seen to be real, but

never give up

don’t lose sight, don’t lose your sight

never give up what you hoped for

you are not alone just listen to the wind when its blowing

you are not alone just open up your eyes and pretend you’re dreaming

and when it all turns blood red, with a head full of lead just wait for the sunrise

You! why would your voice spew the same lame pander?

right and true wont come through if it’s by numbers you color, so

never give up

don’t lose sight, don’t lose your sight

never give up what you hoped for

you are not alone just listen to the wind when its blowing

you are not alone just open up your eyes and pretend you’re dreaming

and when it all turns blood red, with a head full of lead just look for the sunrise

just look for the sunrise

come on, look for the sunrise

oh it’s coming just wait for the sunrise

untill you realize the light pours from your eyes

things that make a shitty job tolerable:

Whistling jazz standards as loud as possible
Pretending i'm in a weightlifting competition
Dirty jokes
How slaphappy the crew gets 45 minutes before closing time
Thinking about you every minute I'm not thinking about what i should be doing
Thinking about you the entire time
The fact that 2 hours with you trumps 9 hours of menial labor and still leaves me happy at the end of a long day.
ect, ect...

goodnight

everything in cycles
always turning over a new leaf
and as my thoughts run to me out of the fog
the simple thought of that one girl sets me up
once again beyond words waiting for them to return
all i think of is you
because near or far you fill me with buzzing chest and fever
my heart is always on its way to you
like a road flare spark so instant and blinding
see where i am, fears on all sides kept at bay
every scare or worried thought you toss aside with a glance
and i'm back to remembering who you are
and why i fear nothing in that moment
it's strange and wonderful how easy it is for me to share anything with you
embarrassing and guilty just fade away
and all i want is too see where it all goes
how much can we both lose in each-other's arms
already lighter than air

i remember
each of those years without her
completely haunted
willfully and then, later, by force in my vulnerable and slumbering mind
i remember each day wasted while I fought with that lover of mine
frustrated and listless, my arm cradling a spinning head
slip into sleep
blues into bliss

i remember
startled and anxious, wild eyed medusa in surreal form
unintelligible sharp tongued darts flew
'there's no escape', I thought, 'even here she cascades fear'
i remember this is a dream, and i flee so fast and hard
to find the one to quench my poisoned mouth
i always found her and it always rained
that stolen kiss would last to morning

i remember
upon waking shock to find my hair so dry
and this bitter face so parched
in the company of one and so alone
i remember the smile on my face and how it refused to fade
how my wandering mind has always found a way to you
to spite all distance, time, and circumstance
always looking to meet your eyes in the morning

Take the long way home
take your time and we wont be left alone
hope hangs by a thread when you take the shortcuts through your mind
you'll wake up and its all wet
but love will rain right in your bed if you let it.
