Sunset Horizon

Sunset Horizon
You torment me with your bitter leave
and night arises like a ravening wolf-
the lightening thief
Cirrus clouds gather
as though to make a nest
the fiery white moon
glazed - the wolf's inhabitant
and dusk soon reckons to lead me
back to my home: hole in the hill
but the Sunset horizon is so mesmerizing
it should have a soul

There Won't Be an America

Children, I yearn forgiveness
for my supposition
i thought no harm in neglect
or abused position

Children, there won't be a home
there won't be an america to escape to
i thought no harm in sleeping in the rain
or letting old dogs die so the new would bite

children
there won't be an america to escape to
in all the world, they want for peace
america was the homestead

children
there won't be an america to escape to
there will only be one world to escape from
one america to run from
one big godless form

I Seek Not Across the Sea

Across the Sea,
it is not that my love will come
Though traveling ships abroad
my Love is not there from

For elven ships
for all their glory and whiteness
blinding pure, it is not yet so
that my Love is coming to caress

my sight seeks not to find it
my eyes look not to a coming
only my might seeks all to love
where loving never sought sixteen

my love is not across the Sea
so ever gallantly seeking me
across the Sea is eternity
so there I look to all the Sea

I Want to Be Everything to You

yesterday, i was think in rhythms
it's just like you and me to be that awesome

earth isn't a planet in the galaxy with a moon
it's where i live with you

my bed isn't where i lay
it's whenever we sleep, though night or day

songs that make me feel. good.
i like to relate them all to you

i can't wait to come home every night
to see you when i wake up is everything

i'm glad we both did things the way we did
so that things are the way they are

i want to be everything to you

Bunker Hill

i've been a fool for way too long and i've been in hiding for a silent song
in the safe of bunker hill the jews are trying to kill me
it's the cost of the safety fines that's bringing me out tonight

could we sit, sit, on a bench, or walk,
for some time we could talk but we'll probably be pretty far apart

he, he makes her happy
he makes her cry
i can see he needs her every night
he, he makes her happy
september wasn't happy
and neither were you

he, he makes her happy
he makes her cry
i can see he needs her every night
he, could have made me happy
september wasn't happy
and neither were you

Sleeping Giants Do Roar Greatly Defiant

'T is I who write in the bleak of night
When Shadow lurks and Barrows fright
But have I yet to write my heart,
To venture where I would to never depart?

My last love, my only and first, the Sea
What joy it did bring to me, what sorrow
For I've done wrong to leave it
But were he able, he'd come to me

I've given the Sea a name unknown
I've given the Sea my works full-blown
Or have I yet to show him any sympathy?
For he is trapped, watching over they and thee

I'm so free-yet says the Sea: he is not
To stop and think that there bellows the forgot:
'T is the Sea who wavers not on his time
Who does work and wastes no water blowing rhymes

Cavalry of Waves

I miss the sea and its cavalry of waves
I miss the salty air and salty breath
My heart leaps to jump into its arms
I miss the subtle breeze felt from afar

My love for the sea is like a dream
No shadow, taste, smell, or sound
In which I sail forever over voyage
Not comprehended as I solely engage

Impatient am I for want to run to sea
I could leave everything behind me
I’ve become restless in my care
If only there were hope I might fare

And on to sea and on to unending waters
Where life is love and skies are bliss
To the undying lands where sleep is naught
Where no heart takes a single thought

I'm Through With This War

don't worry
let you know i love you

don't hide
we'll find ourselves soon

listen to the sound
do you see the tide rising like victory
listen to the echoes
do you hear the sound of freedom in me
alone in the sea of infamy
i'm letting go of the anchor to find the shore

i'm through with this war
i'm through with this ending
im going to find another one to write the story that we're in
i'm tired of waiting
i'm tired of looking at the mountains and the sky
while i'm standing on the shore
i'm through with this war
