I intended to write music for these poems but I never did, I hope you enjoy them as they are.

A Girl that men Forget

I know this girl named Sarah
She lives in Old South Bridge
Whenever she sees a former lover she says hello
They always look confused as if they don’t know
Even after she tells them of their affair
They gaze through her as if she’s air

She’s just a girl that men forget
Nothing remarkable
She’s just a girl that men forget
No matter how hard
She’s never remembered

On the holidays she calls her father
Though she doesn’t know why she bothers
Every time he picks up the phone
She’s always left feeling alone
He insists that he never had a daughter
Tells her she better check the number


She’s just a girl that men forget
Nothing remarkable
She’s just a girl that men forget
No matter how hard
She’s never remembered

Attention Isolation

The attention you need
Is the attention I can’t give
Early morning way past late
You’re still clawing at my brain
Sometimes I just want to go disappear
Maybe then I could breath the air

I need time
Time for myself
I need time
Time for myself
Without your constant needs in my ear

Be On

On-smile
On- Speak positive
On- never gets angry
On- wave nicely

I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
Sometimes I need to be me

On- be friendly
On- speak plainly
On- no commotion
On- happy emotions

I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
Sometimes I need to be me

Society is unrealistic with these demands
Everyone accepts the plastic
No one wants to face the real

I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
I can’t always be on
Sometimes I need to be me

Be me

Blinded by love

Can’t you see?
You’re in love with fire
Using your passions
Undoing all you build
We can all feel the heat
Even from miles away
The sky is the window
Deep into your soul

He doesn’t feel the same
One day he’ll use your heart against you
He’s not who he pretends to be
One day he’ll take his mask off but it’ll be too late

You wont listen
Your busy with fire
Shut off your reasoning
Undermining your conscious
We all know the story
Its been told many times before
The sky is the window
Deep into your soul

He doesn’t feel the same
One day he’ll use your heart against you
He’s not who he pretends to be
One day he’ll take his mask off but it’ll be too late

Passion- so easy to fall in
Possession- so hard to break
Passion- so easy to fall in
Possession- so easy to be trapped in

Dirty Rag

You’re not a dirty rag to me
I wont throw you in that pile
I’ll keep you on my knee
You’re not a dirty rag to me

You’re not a dirty rag to me
Your color has yet to fade
A couple of stains that’s cool
You’re not a dirty rag to me

You’re not as worn out as the closeted clothes
They’re all stained from changing hands
You don’t belong with the crusty socks
No need to throw you out with the past

You’re not a dirty rag to me
I wont throw you in the fire
Keep you fancy free
You’re not a dirty rag to me

Dont Waste Time

Time is the most precious gift we have
Most people never seem to understand this
Every second we’re rushing to the brink
So do what you want before the curtain falls

Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- with people you don’t care about
Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- with people you don’t care about

Life is for the children of now
Only the dead wait for nothing
Why hope for a better day
Might as well make it while you’re breathing

Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- with people you don’t care about
Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- with people you don’t care about

I’ll never understand those jaded fools who think its all been said and done
As long as I have life I will keep on pushing the boundaries

Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- it’s a gift that will be taking away
Don’t waste your time- doing what you don’t want to
Don’t waste your time- with people you don’t care about

Find MY

Can you find my shoes?
Can you find my life?
Under the burdens
On the edge of a switch blade knife
Can you find my shoes?
Can you find my cats?
Before fading to black
Isn’t it peculiar, isn’t it strange?

I don’t know if you care
But I’ll ask you anyway

Ghost Song

I don’t understand how we ever got together
How did we manage for so long?
I don’t understand how I stayed near your cold heart
You only have sympathy for you

I’m glad we’re over
I’m glad we’re over
I breathe much better these days

I don’t understand how you thought we were friends
After you gave our secrets away
I never understood your boring sex
Your idea of a party is watching paint dry

I’m glad we’re over
I’m glad we’re over
I breathe much better these days

I’m glad we’re over
I’m glad we’re over
I breathe much better these days

Hole in All

I’m not like your forgetting
All my idle dreams
Leaving those youthful ruins
On the bottle cap floor

I could never ever be like you
A broken bird on the ceiling
I could never ever be like you
A broken bird on the ceiling

Broken no
Broken no

I shine

You never cared for splinters
Plucking memories from your mind
I never paid attention to time
Knowing it will come back round again

I could never ever be like you
A broken bird on the ceiling
I could never ever be like you
A broken bird on the ceiling

Broken no
Broken no

I shine

I knew you knew

Funny how we spent so much time
Playing around in each others minds
Never knowing that we were strangers
Looking back doesn’t amuse me
Nothing we did was funny
All the chips down illusions gone now

I wish I knew you
I wish you knew me
Before we parted for eternity

Funny how the clouds roll by
They have the answers I don’t know why
I would like to be them for a weekend
I wonder what became of you
My stranger fades in blue
What does it matter now?
No words to say anyhow

I wish I knew you
I wish you knew me
Before we parted for eternity

We never saw it coming
But it did

Lonely Yodeling Cowboy

Have you seen that old lonely hobo?
Standing at the corner of Lincoln and May
He’s been there for thirty odd years
Waiting for his true love to come his way
He had love in his younger days
But she found her way to an early grave

Yodel on lonely hobo
Yodel on yodel on
Yodel on lonely hobo
Maybe she’ll return on judgment day

I can’t help but to feel sorry for that hobo
He stands all night and all day
Whether the heat burns or the snow freezes
He never moves out of people’s way
Nor does he take a handout
He just Yodels for the girl in the early grave

Yodel on lonely hobo
Yodel on yodel on
Yodel on lonely hobo
Maybe she’ll return on judgment day

M.I.A.

Talking to the wall floating in space
Arguing between my two heads
Open my brains find my initials
Rewired I’m a bit askew

I’ll find out who I am

Galactic president no one mentions
On a journey or a mission
Everyone seems to know the details
Embryonic life left me cybernetic

I’ll find out who I am

At the edge of the universe
At the edge of the universe
At the end of this verse

Old Time Love

Why did you come here wearing that tattoo?
Sitting at the bar dear talking until two

I guess it was fate
You were destined to be my mate

Why did you come here wearing that tattoo?
Ever since dear I’ve been falling for you

I guess it was fate
You were destined to be my mate

Now we’ve been together for so long
I don’t regret a single day
So I wrote this song for you
Telling how I love you in that special way

Why did you come here wearing that tattoo?
Sitting at the bar dear talking until two

I guess it was fate
You were destined to be my mate

Recycled Beer Cans

I would build a world out of recycled beer cans
Just to be with you
I would build a world out of recycled beer cans
To prove my love for you

I know this might not be the most romantic thing
As I finish another gulp adding tin to the pile
Though I may die of liver failure
It’s the only expression I can give

I would build a world of recycled beer cans
Just to be with you
I would build a world out of recycled beer cans
To prove my love for you

Now I know you’re thinking I’m a fool
Can barely stand or speak I just drool
Know that you’ll always be the one
Even when my beer goggles have gone

I would build a world of recycle beer cans
Just to be with you
I would build a world out of recycle beer cans
To prove my love for you

To prove my love to you

Scarecrow

You always have me in a field of dreams
You never knew me now it seems
Stuffed me with many misguided hopes
Getting mad when I didn’t act like a dope

Pushing buttons
You always
Always

Am I supposed to be your scarecrow?
Hanging around without a mind
Am I suppose to be your scarecrow
Simply standing out of time

Sunrise to sunset
Too many demons to forget
Latching on to false notions of self
Striving for life materialist wealth

Pushing buttons
You always
Always

Am I supposed to be your scarecrow?
Hanging around without a mind
Am I supposed to be your scarecrow?
Simply standing out of time
