I wasted my life in a search for myself
Lost amid cul de sacs and blind alleys
Wondering just what it was I wanted
Sages say he is doomed who dallies
Horizons don't wait for anyone
Age creeps up on you like a mist
Years become vague phantoms
Its why I've rarely been kissed
I'm getting older but still confused
I always had trouble with my vision
Soon I wont s...

Based on the opening scene of Stardust Memories.
The clock ticks in desperation to move us along, to where we belong.
Our eyes remain forward, no longer looking back.
The man in seat 2B sobs with tears streaming down his face. He’s left his life in his old place.
I soak in the faces of passengers around me, stern looks all around.
All longing for company, for answers that c...

If I meet a stranger in the way and he asked me for my name,
Should I tell him with a sad sad smile that we are all the same?
When a ravenous roaring lion comes hurtling down the street,
Should I stand my ground a trembling and sweep him off his furry feet?
If our pearls of wisdom scatter, strewn askew on stony ground,
Should we weep and wail, O woe is me!, or act like are fool...

It was black and white
for a while
Until the first line
Then the pale grey people
the people who could only draw
a black cross
in a white box
began to sense
shading the palette
The colours of debate
the harsh red of anger
the yellow of injustice

Should i speak up when its wrong?
Should i challenge what i see?
Should i mind my own business?
Should i not judge what i see?
Should i stand up for what's right?
Should i concentrate on me?
Should i stop being so selfish?
Should i know what's good for me?
Should i know my place and shut my mouth?
Should i not be a sheep?
Should i make sure they know my name?
Should i not have that need...

The ghost of the unborn
Knife in hand.
Twisting heart piercing
Hurt until death,
Black gothic, silver ringlets
To no avail.
Ears that will always hear
A lost child’s cry.
Youths payback time
Drink it down.
Don’t cry someone will see.
Care free girl
She knows now.
Where was Mother
Holding back God.
It’s for the best
Work and car...

I feared I was the burning bush,
Yet I was not consumed,
I cried for a season, all of winter,
But now I am approved.
Pour the wine, and we shall feast,
Landlocked, in the land of east,
Once I ever saw the sea,
The waves are calling me.
I dwell on top, of a middle-class hill,
The pre-adult grand old duke of present,
I live here, not against my will,...
