How to read

Don’t want to see it
the writing on the wall
so defeated
the words don’t mean to fall
I just can’t read it
can’t hear the message in the air
I don’t believe it
I just hear it everywhere
and now it’s gone but
I never knew that it was near
don’t want to see it
now that it’s gone I cannot cheer
I never needed
anything but words you see
didn’t hear them
forgot that I know how to read

Remember yesterday

History in black and white
waiting for the rearview light
keep on speeding on and on
keep on singing the same old songs
never forget and never let go
keep on gripping the flesh grown old
history in skins that scar
everything is bitter and far
over the moon and under the hill
keep on the road don’t hit to kill
waiting for light in the dim moonlight
history in black and memories all gone
the white in this purity a beautiful new song
we’ll forget tomorrow remember yesterday

Feel me

Never forget me
never move on
I’ll keep on writing
the same old damn song
singing of life like I’m moving forward
got you on my mind
the crazy getting bolder
feel me again
when you’re touching her skin
when you got babies
I hope you remember
the way that I tasted back in December
got you still dreaming I hope that it’s me
never forget the words you didn’t mean
I’ll always love you
though I claim that I don’t
I’ll always want you with my hands on your throat

Without a care

Pluck the flowers watch them die
keep them close and whisper bye
walk away and never sing
never return or drink the mead
ask them nicely how they seed
should have asked before they died
now they’re gone and you wonder why
the withered petals are in your hands
you see beauty tragedy romance
the end of all is so less pretty
like the tragic forgetful feeling
should have asked before they died
the other end we see no sight
the slight deflowering overnight
keep them close and whisper bye
you pretend you cry at night
as though it burns your withered eyes
drink and burn the smoke you wear
pluck the flowers without a care

On this cross

It’s too late to forget
not enough time left to deal with it
got to jump stones and drain rivers
find myself while making dinner
it’s too late to forget it now
to lose the thought
keep my head in the clouds
like windows stained red from wine on the floor
the sun keeps on shining burning for more
it’s too late to forget what you said yesterday
it’s too late to forgive the chances you didn’t take
it’s too late and it’s done now
all but once lost
you find yourself broken
left on this cross

Ponder

Give a little to the soul
remember you are growing old
everyday it’s taking hold
you believed and you were sold
give a little
lose a lot
burn the canvas
the paint is hot
burning the picture that we forgot
cast it away like the stress you breed
feeding in mourning
thanking the thieves
nobody cares
not really
but we give what we need
sell the soul once again
the drinks that spill on your head
you have died
and now you wander
give a lot gain lots to ponder

Forget, move on

So many promises
broken, lost and discarded
you never told me
what you really wanted
this is not okay,
no, it’s really quite disgusting
that my only crime is believing
what you told me,
so many little things left unsaid
didn’t take the time to be acquainted
you took to speaking words so confident
but you never came through
you never made good
just kept fucking talking
like one day you would
but one day never comes
it never gets better
until the final day when I forget forever
every promise broken let’s say that I forgot
I don’t really know you
just start new with what you got
so many broken promises
I forget and then move on
