American Lesion

Opinion

The first thing i remember was the friction in the room And that brown spinnett piano that never played in tune The cruel impatient tyrant, the frustrated malcontent The need to find the pieces, and the absence of cement No one ever told me about the right way to love And no one ever showed me what we’re supposed to …

Fate’s Cruel Hand

There’s a leaf in the sky and it’s floating on by A new season dawns but something is gone There are days in the past and days waiting for me I don’t need a visionary in order to see You can do what you want to me ’cause i don’t have the energy To retreat or hold ground or barely …

The Elements

You have always lived like this You have always lived like this The ice blue chill The dark gray sky The frozen ground And the helpless feeling of insignificance You have always lived like this You have always lived like this Yeah The day’s routine The day’s unsure The day is done And the dreams of being somewhere you can’t …

In The Mirror

Your arrogance It will surely bring you down Is there a judgement appropriate for you That you spit at others? That you spit at others? Look hard in the mirror then in ten years look again There will be lines, sags and rashes But you’ll have come no further But you’ll have come no further But you’ll have come no …

Back To Earth

He wakes with the glow of adventure and hope The morning smells sweet and replete with opportunity He dressed into another day feeling lucky to be alive Though nobody follows him he’s sure the future’s bright Bring him back Someone’s going to have to bring him back to earth He’s getting out of hand His alacrity for life is more …
