As You Slide

As you slide out of my face
I guess I won't need the mace
You go your merry way
Obnoxious - more each day

As my need turns to greed

I must control anothers soul

Then I read and realize

I just want to be one of your spies
What do you really have to offer?

You annoy to get attention

Oh and I forgot to mention

You now have a suspension

Waiting In the Lost Years

(key of D)



Chorus:

When are you gonna come over here?

When are you gonna tell me everything?

'Cos I've been waiting here for years,

But I'll tell you it's nice for now.



Verse 1:

Oh babe I love you so.

Don't you worry, I won't go.

You hold the cards, but I don't mind,

'Cos love ain't fair, but ours is kind.



Chorus:

When are you gonna come over here?

When are you gonna tell me everything?

'Cos I've been… Continue

Storm

Stumbling through

The shadows

To

An End



Where did it began

Where do I go

I wish I could know



But I will

And I will

Rise up

To you

On my darkest day

I will

I will

Rise up

To you

All the pain fades away



Sifting through the fog

On a night

Like this

I see the light

Shining

In the darkness

Shrouded by mist

When does lost end

And found begin

Wrapped… Continue

Affirmation

If I never get to touch your face

If I never get to look in your eyes

If I never get to kiss your lips

Because of you

At least

I will always have this



If I never embrace you again

If our paths aren't meant to cross

If you are only a memory in the night

At least

You

Have shown me more love

More light

Then you will ever know



And if you were only meant to teach me

If you were only meant to reach me

If you… Continue

Fingertips

Thoughts of him
Rest
On my fingertips
Love of him
Rests
On my lips
Sounds of his voice
Rest
In my heart
And these emotions are carried
Through fingertips

What Can Never Be..

I read your book

To the point where the pages

Have started to fall apart



I wish I could respond

With some eloquent words

But I don't know where to start



It seems to me

A good idea

To stumble in the dark



So I could put words down

Maybe I can ground

To forget the aching

In my heart



And tonight

I will dream

Of what can never be

So I can

Try to escape

The longing

Inside of… Continue

In Praise of Shame - Lord Alfred Douglas

Last night unto my bed bethought there came

Our lady of strange dreams, and from an urn

She poured live fire, so that mine eyes did burn

At the sight of it. Anon the floating fame

Took many shapes, and one cried: "I am shame

That walks with Love, I am most wise to turn

Cold lips and limbs to fire; therefore discern

And see my loveliness, and praise my name."



And afterwords, in radiant garments dressed

With sound of flutes and laughing of glad… Continue

Plastic Man

I'm a plastic man in a plastic land

It's fantastic man

Come let's give a hand

To the leaders who

Teach us how to woo

Almost everyone until they come undone-



And hide the truth from the youth



Live a plastic life with my plastic soul

Social suicide

If I break my role

So I nod and smile

Like a country mile

Though I'm feeling vile inside



Other plastic men

Laugh and shake my hand

As we all 'can can'

To… Continue

Enjoy The Day (I can't I owe money)

Enjoy the day!

I can't I owe money

What did you say?

I can't I owe money

Enjoy the sun

I can't I owe money

Have some fun

I can't I owe money

Look at the kids

I can't I owe money

Step on a flower

I can't I owe money

Say something funny

I can't I owe money

What did you pay

All of my money



Why did you borrw?

It brought you sorrow

There's always tomorrow

Don't be a w**** oh!

Treat Me Like A Star Star

Treat Me Like A Star Star





If you treat me like a start I will shine for you

Find the time for you

Walk the line for you



You can come in as you are

I will mind for you

All the things you do

Until all is true

And I'll treat you like a star star too!



If you treat me like a star

I will buy you a car or a bar

Maybe an empanada or an enchilada

So wherever you are -

Just treat me like a start

And we will go… Continue

Two news items

The 5-4-7 Arts Center in Greensburg, built to high "green" standards after the devastating tornado nearly destroyed the town in 2007, has begun selling Jack's latest book.

Jack has decided to donate all profits from sales of "Splendid" to the Arts Center and is recommending that fans also consider donations.

"Greed! War!, Make it stop!"

Greed! War!, Make it stop!



I cried yesterday, but no not for me,

for them our freedom the dying

the death, I pray, I sit silently

and die, inside I cry, can it stop

the fight, the war, the loved ones

please let it end

my heart stands still

for them, I care.



The blood rises high

bodies, blown to bits

arms, limbs get torn

young people our newborns gone

in memory they live on,

but it's not enough,

to keep us… Continue

"Embrace Life, and Let Live"

Kiss the air

make it cry

reach for the sky

as it runs by

comb the mountains

with your smile

embrace the laughter

when the waves climb high

enlighten your senses

with a paintbrush

create a scene

when your toes touch

circle the road

with wide open eyes

find a forbiding place

for your mind to hide

caress the night

with the soul that you hold

remember my darling

Waiting Hard for Live Wind

It was the middle of the night

And I was waiting hard

Hoping you would come into my back yard

Take me to that place where we go now and then

Whisper me in with your real live wind



Ain't no use fighting time with time

He always wins at the end of the line

Gotta give in-make the change and then

Get used to being what you are again



And whisper live wind like there's no tomorrow

Whisper live wind like there ain't no sorrow

Can't… Continue
