Murder Me, Honey

if i believed you i'd take your gesture as a sign.
a sign that something ain't right.
believe me honey this is a murder
you might want to witness.
i saw the rerun on cable TV and it desensitized me.

that's how it goes these days
people are too self-obsessed to care.
violence crashes down around your ears
and all you can do is pretend to cry.
why stop there, why stop anywhere.
why stop at all.

murder me honey
make me bleed for what i believe in.
wake my honey
tell my thoughts what am i thinking.

you found your way in.
made yourself at home.

Better Than The Knife

A woman can cut you up better than a butcher can skin and bone a turkey.
A woman can burn holes in you better than either one of us can iron a shirt.
A woman will first tell you everything, even though you weren't expecting
Then she'll expect all that back and more in return.

And if she doesn't get it
She'll put a knife through you.
Some use a sharpened, shining blade
Others barb their words with
Just the same.

A woman can melt through your heart like acid through wood and grass
A woman can rip the damn heart out through your ass
A woman is more insidious than you realise
A woman is a curse and a blessing twice disguised.

And if you don't expose the hidden truths of your soul
You'd better believe you'll suffer more letting them fly
Out in to the darkness, into the bartenders ear
Wherever they land.

Bigot

I hate most of all the damn bigots
The closed-minded fools
The idiots who have forgotten
How well they have it.

If there's something I've learned and should impart
It is - keep an open mind and heart
Because as soon as you close things down
Start ignoring other peoples reality
You become a fool.

I'm meeting them in their thirties and forties
And much more concerning, in their twenties
So pampered and conditioned and soft
That life seems like a boring, waking dream
A consumerist paradise
A subtle yet potent Hell.

I'm walking around knee deep
But not in my own mistakes

A Window

I view television as a window into the world which I have come to hate
I view the silence when it's off as something to appreciate
Despite advances in multiple fields of entertainment this beast persists
The brain-rotting glow cube substituting denominator for greatness

Somehow I don't hate this beast
But I'd like to see somebody slay it
With the right line come out and SAY IT
Watch it disappear as quickly as it came
That'll take about fifty years then.

How can you love a distraction that is fractured with distraction?
How can you tolerate a program broken apart by ad fragments?
Why is your brain such a dull and listless tool?
Did you willingly tune it to a channel less cruel?

A window lets light in, and lets home truths out.
This one lets light out, and when off, reflects light back.
It seems to be a joyful giver
But for all the beams it radiates
