Sting and Fangs

June 18, 2007

i dont have any sting as i dont have a tail, but i do have fangs in my mouth, so stay away or get bitten.

GAZE INTO THE SERPENT’S EYES

FEEL THE PRICK OF SERPENT’S BITE
AND SENSE THE VENOM IN YOUR LIES
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE YOU WOULD FIND
BETWEEN RUINOUS FANGS & SINISTER MIND.

Adornments & Ornaments

June 14, 2007

My song has put off her adornments. She has no pride of dress and decoration. Ornaments would mar our union; they would come between thee and me; their jingling would drown thy whispers.”

Five years

June 11, 2007

Pushing thru the market square, so many mothers sighing
News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying

We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, thats all weve got
We’ve got five years, what a surprise
Five years, stuck on my eyes
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, thats all weve got
We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, thats all weve got
We’ve got five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, thats all we’ve got
Five years
Five years
Five years
Five years.

ECHOES

June 8, 2007

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can.
