Over Krakatoa

I’m over krakatoa in a microlite
she’s like an overheated stick of dynamite
I could have come to dinner
and maybe stay the night
but I’m over Krakatoa in a microlite
Crossed the purple ocean 
in the belly of a whale
searched for true enlightenment
and the holy grail
Preacher always told me
don’t give up without a fight
so I’m over Krakatoa in a microlite
Sailed across the desert
my ship was full of fleas
an itch I couldn’t scratch
brought me to my knees
Had to change direction
so here I am tonight
buzzin’ Krakatoa with my microlite 

can you see me now
flyin’ past the sun 

King of the Deep

What a shame
how sick we are
to chase a life
‘til they’re no more
dive - live on
be spared the rule
mother whale your baby cries
she tries to find a place to hide
so far so good
but still misunderstood
far away and out to sea
water king your majesty
please don’t ever fade away
underneath the waves
down below down down
tried so hard to understand
you were here before we man
you will see they’ll disappear
far away and out to sea
water king your majesty
please don’t ever fade away
underneath the waves
down below down down

 Doctor kool

Smiles by day and hides by night
don’t look so good in candlelight
watch that smile, she’s oh so vain
botox beauty for all her pain
Doctor Kool, blow my mind, smooth the lines away
Doctor Kool, take your time, keep the years at bay
pain makes perfect, so I’m told
your credit cards are just overload
botox beauty, you can’t sleep, don’t you know, it’s just skin deep
cash no object, don’t care who pays, silicon to boost your trade
keep your distance, ‘cause it’s no joke, this transformation is overload
I don’t know you now, hows that make you feel
what a price to pay...surreal!!!
Who’s that lady, I don’t know, she ain’t mine, but she’s gotta go
keep your distance, ‘cause it’s no joke, this transformation is overload
One day you’ll wake up, and you’ll see, the mirror says it’s time
you face up to your makeup, you can’t smile, it’s time to draw the line
your love of cool just made me pay, it’s got you good it’s gone too far
aint gonna pay no more..
they would have loved you anyway......

The Iceman

In the state of 49 we were acting out the crime of being people
but it never did occur the powers that be could take a turn
and spawn their evil
A young man next to me sank to his knees and asked his god
can this be reason
while half a world away Gates' machines began to say
this place is needed
In this land of crystal light they sank a hole in dead of night
and found their booty
the satelite was hot don’t give a damn about your lot or natural beauty
this disrespect of man and the raping of his land just has no meaning
now the money talks, deals are closed, you’re spared no feelings
In the state of 49 an iceman friend of mine found the reason
they signed the dotted line, now it’s come to payback time
it’s open season
The eyes that only see legal paper not a tree just can’t be trusted
this land of crystal light is now a beacon in the night,
it’s done and dusted
Hey! Mr white man what you say, is it true
this land of our children it all belongs to you Hey! Mr white man can you see what you have done the days of the iceman have now come and gone...

 

Where are you now


Do you remember when
the future was way back there
wheels of time stood still
we’re drowning in bluebirds tears
where are you
loneliness is all I see
now that the futures past
deep are the sands of time
bluebird remember me
where are you
now that the futures here
bluebird remember me
fall from your silent flight
don’t you abandon me
where are you
I need an answer to
my place in space and time
a future still untold
bluebird rescue me

Every sight and sound
everything we are
all our thoughts that fell, from every star
where are you now
are you lost to this world
with eyes looking down
his singing unheard


Book of days (between the lines)

Life’s a book turn the page
the dreamers are here
every word of your life
and lessons learned are written here
love and rage
It’s all in this book
just read on
close your eyes and look
it’s all between the lines 

Life’s a book mark the page
close it now the mornings near
time to wake
and live those words
‘till the dreamer comes near
love and rage
it’s all in this book
just read on
close your eyes and look
it’s all between the lines

 

Book of days 

At the start of the day
maybe she’ll stay
could be we’re on the same page
promising this
forget about that
you know we’re just kidding ourselves
look at me now
do you see it all
take it all back and be sure
if you don’t find
the things you seek most
over the page you’ll be free
I’ll draw the line
through the good times or bad
whatever you want let it be
close your eyes and you’ll see
this book of days.... in me
