Thoughts in the shape of words.

Moving On

Well we all had our downs
And we all had our perks
And I thought we’d stick together
But that’s just not how it works

If I could change the past
And rearrange the ticking time
I sure would give it a try
Because those times were fine

But bonds are easily broken
And it’s so sad, but still so true
Those past days of pure joy
Disappeared without a clue

We had each other once
We were blood brothers
We lived and roamed free
And the earth was our mother

Now we’re thousand miles apart
Some are in the mountains, some at sea
We drifted so vague and slow
We didn’t know what would be

Everyone’s finding their way
Starting a new life to live
I’m trying as hard as I can
But I’ve got doubts of what I can give

Yes, what once were is gone
And I guess that’s okay
If you could wear my coat for a day
You’d know I’m headed for the crossroads some day

We had each other once
We were blood brothers
We lived and roamed free
And the earth was our mother

Savior In White

Psychiatrist ward
Cold and grey
My mind is out of control
On this rainy day

Concrete waiting room
A vending machine there
And I’m about to explode
In this old wooden chair

Waiting all night for some words
Waiting all night to be heard

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Hours they pass
The night’s settlin’ in
Walking in circles
A cup of coffee to drink

Try and understand
I’m as low as you can get
I’m just looking for some assistance
Finishing off my last cigarette

Waiting all night so please
Waiting to get some release

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

This is my last outpost
And no one should feel this way
The department of joy is closed
Lend a hand if you may

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Can’t take it anymore
I’m stranded on a distant shore
Can’t stand the waiting for sure
Just can’t take this anymore

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

When You Were At Ease

Waking up
Tired
Beside me a half filled cup

Stumblin’ out
Of Bed
Can’t remember last night

There’s a thin line to walk
Between the good and the bad
Too much
Too soon
Too Fast
Will make you forget
What you had

When you were at ease
Yes, when you were at ease
It’s easy to look back
But hard
To find a place
To be at ease

I need
The urge
To see all I can see

And yes
They rule
Just to kill your protests

A place that’s been bought and sold
Is the pavement that we all walk
They took
They took
They took
And fooled us with their talk

So forget for a while
The hardship
Forget for a while
The despair
And imagine the times

When you were at ease
Yes, when you were at ease
It’s easy to look back
But hard
To find a place
To be at ease

Gazing Out

I gaze upon the settling sun
For a moment I can unwind
Just sit down and cool off
After a long day with a tortured mind

If there is salvation here
I sure can’t find none
Confined in this cage
This prison that I shun

I dream of the universe
Such a strong dose of reality
When you realize your size
You realize your inability

There are ways to escape
This I must believe
Without my inner spirit
I’d lose my dignity

No I’m not one for mediocrity
When I work, I work hard
But there’s so much more to be found
You just got to get around

I’d sail across the ocean
Just to find another side of me
Something new to discover
And new places to see

But what good is an escape
If you don’t know where to start
I guess it all comes down
To that feeling in your heart

That sudden notion of an idea
Is what leads you into wondering one day
What am I accomplishing right here
Could perhaps come to fruition if I go away

I can hear that whistle a-coming
That train coming up around the bend
But I’m stuck in this twilight zone
I can’t tell you where I’ll end up in the end

But I won’t be traveling towards sorrow
I’ll find a path paved with gold
And i won’t settle for the silver
I swear I’ll struggle ’til I get old

I’m just looking for a break
So my route can be seen clearly
Getting out of the mist now
With my body so weary

Perhaps someone to wake up with
Someone to share my time
And maybe stand beside me
When we would make our climb

Still I’m just that old dreamer
With my morale and my ideals
Maybe something will happen
And perhaps nothing will

Now as i gaze upon the night
I think of others with needs
I find it hard to find serenity
When there’s so many people to feed
