Have We Forgotten

Have we forgotten that we’re a rebellious people
Cashing checks under a drifter’s pseudonym
But together, we race across time, surviving
Embracing the unity of singing outlawed hymns
Lately, crying about a falsified history
Disillusioned, disappointed, disingenuous
I have no faith in movements and isms
They’re tinged with the superfluous
I believe in honor & service to the people
Treat each as an individual, never a group
Freedom & liberty distilled down to purest forms
Or else, we’ll see this hatred played out in an endless loop

Southern California Made Us Promises

Southern California made us promises
That no one could possibly make
The beach & the beauty
All revealed to be restlessly fake
But I know of a callow truth
Of heritage & the shore of Bodega Bay
Of family & the love we can’t forget
Perhaps I’ll make it back some sunny day

I’m Gonna Bust Out With The Tortoiseshell Frames

file-nov-19-06-37-53

I’m gonna bust out with the tortoiseshell frames

I can take a sensual selfie if you please

Come in for a closer look, Lady

Grab my hair while I’m down on my knees

Let me taste your sweet serenity

Forget the boys who don’t know how

It’s not your job to make them men

You’re here, within my clutches now

I Didn’t Mean To Get Too Personal

I didn’t mean to get too personal
I merely noticed your exposed slip
My thoughts took me to uncharted waters
Thinking of us – alone- a subtle skinny dip
An abandoned wedding gown crumpled
The satin too white against your lace
I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel
Though I could see the muted joy in your face
You kicked off your heels & removed your gloves
Walking too close you whispered ‘yes’ to my surprise
I loosened my tie before you took charge
I’ll never forget how you looked with your laughing eyes

You Know The Type

You know the type

Running off to sail the oceans

Claiming to be a dread pirate

Wishing for some sort of motion

A stagnant life killing the soul

Truth is, he only ever wanted to be with you

This is the life chosen, so time to live

Easy to forget the water’s real hue

Feed My Soul With Rock & Roll

Feed my soul with rock & roll
I need you to turn up the noise
The raw & dirty guitar licks
You tried to seduce little rich boys
My heart broke in the shadows
Don’t tell me to relax, I’m out of proportion
You’re a cruel woman, ya know
I’m gonna need to turn up the distortion
I feel ridiculous for trusting you
Gimme that dial, I want it loud
Let me forget my woes tonight
& that I’ve been before this soulless crowd

I’ll Send You Love Notes

cell-phone-791365

I’ll send you love notes throughout the day

Explaining how much you mean to me

Instructions for the coming nightfall

Details & negotiations for once you’re free

We need to get rid of all the day’s stress

Let us forget about tomorrow’s obligations

I’ll start by removing my clothes first

It’ll be a beginning to your eventual inspiration

I’m Not Going To Apologize

theatre-426447.jpg

I’m not going to apologize
Because you decided to be offended
You’re uber sensitive & whiney
My beliefs shall not be defended
I’m going to keep on keeping on
I forget you as you lag behind
I passively resist your drama
Leaving you to the new tragedies you might find
