Art Helps you See, Dance Helps you Feel, Music Helps you Breathe

NOBODY KNOWS

 

I have a diamond in my pocket

A diamond in my pocket

A diamond in my pocket

And nobody knows but God and me

 

Some have seen it shine

Some have seen it shimmer

Some have seen a Glimmer

But my diamond, nobody has seen

 

I have a diamond in my pocket

A diamond in my pocket

A diamond in my pocket

And nobody knows but God and me

 

I tried to show you once

I tried to show you twice

My priceless diamond present

But you were too blind to find the time

DREAM MACHINE

 

Can you hear that?
Can you hear it?
Hear that hummm
Hear that drummm
Hear that?
Engine Revving 
And Ready to ride

Pumping, Purring, Crying,
She’s blowing out steam
My sexy dream maker
I make her
Mean Green Machine
-------------------------------
She’s gonna
Te- Te –uh-uh- ake us
To Highway Milky Way

Milky Way will wrap us up
 

With warmth and cookies, and pillows.
Just us two
And all the few
Mellow fellows
Who live off love, and music, and wine
Rosy glasses and signs

So,

 

Are you Ready?
Ready to ride
Take my hand
Leave your taxes behind
Just us two
Don’t look behind, 
Just look ahead
She’s

 

Pumping, Purring, Crying,
She’s blowing out steam
My sexy dream maker
I make her
Mean Green Machine
-------------------------------
She’s gonna
Te- Te –uh-uh- ake us
To Highway Milky Way

 

IN LUV WITH NUTHIN’

 

Nuthin’ isn’t somethin’ you can hold in your hand.

You can’t buy it or sell it, taste it or smell it. 

Nuthin’ comes from your heart to your mind. 

Sometimes it helps you see; Sometimes it makes you blind.  Nuthin’ is Faith, nuthin’ is Hope, Nuthin’ is Dreams, Nuthin’ as it seems.  Therefore:

 

I’m in love with Nuthin’

Nuthin’ means all to me

It’s the only real Somethin’

To have and to hold, You see?

------------------

On a dreary day, in time

Full of bullshit, stuff, and Lies

Nuthin’ keeps me warm at night

Nuthin is the only Truth in sight

 

I wished upon a shooting star

I wish I may, I wish I might

I wished upon a Real Boy

Full of dirt, glitter, truth, & spice

---------------------

And I’d love All his parts,

Black, White, Pink, Yellow, Blue

Because I know they belonged to him

He’d belonged to me, We’d be 1, and 2

 

Some say I’m a Dreamer; I know

I’m not the only one

These days you don’t know where they Grow

Must be orbitin’ around the Sun

--------------------

In Plastic Bags and Glass jars

I’m alone with a Team of Frauds

My fake friends in Coded Cans

Hashtags and Avatars

 

Sometimes I get the Urge & Will to

Suck, Smoke, & Blow Life’s Marrow

I know such a Splurge cuts Immortality

So no Reds, Eggs, Pipes, or Pops for me

---------------------------

So I Breath the Stale Air instead

Drink my milk for Strong Bones

Is a longer Life Lease Pleasing

If your Heart Stopped, you’re Dead, But Breathing?

BUS STOP BLUES

 

Well I may have missed the bus, Ba-be

But I’ll be standin’ here for life

Cause I’m an optimistic Mama

Hopin’ you’ll be back soon

Hurry, hurry, Pretty Baby

It’s hot in the month of June

 

I’ve been waitin’ at this corner

Watchin’ people come and go

waitin’, Standin’ lonely

Come and get me b‘fo I go

The Reapers making rounds

I’ld like to meet you, Don’t you know

 

Monday I was lookin mighty pretty

Men would whistle as they passed by

Now it’s Sunday, I’m nasty griddy

People pitty me and cry

I’m still good for it , Pretty Baby

Guaranteed to satisfied

 

Give me a ride Mr Driver

I’ll ride your bus for life

We can drive to the Mountains

Make each other happy makin’ stories side by side

You make the toast, I’ll make the Jam

Laughin , Lovin, Livin’ hand in hand

 

Well I may have missed the bus, Ba-be

I’ll be standin’ here for life

Cause I’m an optimistic Mama

I just know you’ll deliver

Come and get me Mister

I’m freezing here in December

(Come and get me Pretty Baby…….Oh, Baby)

I HATE WATER

 

I hate Wide Rivers

I hate Deep Seas

I hate Cold Oceans

, but with you,

I’d jump in the Water Gladly

I’d Wade in the Water with you

 

 

I use my Hands

I use my Fingers

I use my Toes

, the Lord knows,

I’d let you use them too.

I’d give a Hand to you

 

WELL,

A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME, 

IF LET EMPTY & ALONE

STAY HERE IF YOU LIKE, 

STAY HERE DAY AND NIGHT

IT MAY BE OLD & DUSTY,  

BUT IT’LL BE WARM & COMFY FOR YOU

                    That’s True

 

 

I’m Tired & Weary

I’m Old & Spent

I’m Weak & Blue

, but I’d build a Mountain for you.

If you asked me to

 

 

I have a Heart

I have a Body

I have a Mind

, Be Kind,

‘Cause I’m sharing myself with you

I’m trusting you

SPELLS

 

She rolled all the way from Texas

Straight up to Tennessee

In the middle of November

 With her heart in her head

And nothin’ on her mind

 Out to find a simple man

HE CAST SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

 

 

He was tall, white, and handsome

Had a curl to his hair

Fine fiddlin’ fingers

Avante garde and full of flair

Full of Grace and full of thunder

A siren, Such a sin

HE CAST SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

 

 

They were all stark and starin’

 As he swayed the air to movin’

She’d thought he’d see her there

Now Her heart was ruined

(‘Cause) She was just a dime a dozen

 A pebble in the pond

Just another mother in the mob

HE CAST SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

 SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

 

 

She thought that she was special

She liked the boy not the magician

Not the Gallant or the Reverend

Just the simple man

With her common disposition

She wanted to be his friend

 NOT JUST SOME  GIRL CAUGHT UNDER

 

So she rolled back to North East Texas

Straight down from Tennessee

Sold her soul to the devil

Sewed on airs , Glued on graces

Became a sorceress and a preacher

An artist and a teacher

SHE CAST SPELLS THEY ALL WERE UNDER

SPELLS THAT HE FELL UNDER

 

LEGENDARY LOVER

 

When the concretes cold

And the sun stands still

I like to crawl up

into the corner of my mind

Find a warm blanket

And bide the time

 

With my Legendary Lover

He loves me so

My Legendary Lover

He loves me right

He gives me hugs and kisses

Every day and All night

 

If I open my eyes & you are there

But I am blind

Please Punch me

Pluck me from my clouds

Tell me that you love me

& will always be mine

 

I’ll be your Legendary Lover

And love you so

Your Legendary Lover

Who loves you right

I’ll give you hugs and kisses

Every day and All night.

 

TWO HOUSES

 

I’m takin’ back my two houses

One on Cherry Hill

The other Cobble Stone

Strangers lived there far too long

Along the banks of the Calcasieu

Left vacant and alone

 

I’m takin’ back my two houses

One house sinkin’

The other a mausoleum

Ashamed to face my own Demons

Fled the scene of the crime

With fear and treason

 

Hate & Fear held me back too long

Now I’m taking the reigns

Riding love full force

Diggin’ up these dirty graves

penetrating these castrated kin

I used to know way back when

 

I’m takin’ back my two houses

One on Cherry hill

The other Cobble stone

I’m not stopping there

Gonna drive my roots down deep

And climb to the top of my own mountain

Breathe my own air, Live in myself

Face the world solid & true

 

BLEED

 

I wish I were a robot

A cold, hard, machine

I wish I had no feelings

Cause you’re sooo mean

 

'Cause I Bleed

And I see

What you’re doing to me

 --------------------

And it’s hard

To stop your shards

From Ripping up my Heart

 

 

I wish I weren’t a scarecrow

And had a Brain

I wish I weren’t so stupid

Listening to your lie refrain

 

‘Cause I Bleed

And I see

What you’re doing to me

-------------------- 

And it’s hard

To stop your shards

From Ripping up my Heart

 

‘Cause I give, give, give

And you take, take, take

But you spit out all I gave

And just because

You didn’t like the taste

Doesn’t mean I didn’t serve my all

 

 

I wish I were a vulture

And could fly away

I’d eat up my dead pieces

You spit out each day

 

Cause I Bleed

And I see

What you’re doing to me

 ----------------------

And it’s hard

To stop your shards

From Ripping up my Heart

 

 

I wish I weren’t a scarecrow

I wish I were a robot

I wish I were a vulture

I wish you weren’t so mean

 

WE ARE ELECTRIC

 

I had a dream last night

They were comin’ for me

A heard of Killer Whales & Clowns,

Magic bullets, Rippin’ Rounds

I held my breath & bones

Hid my eyes under stones

Didn’t move a muscle

Held my whispers and my groans

 

 

 

I fear what I can’t see

Then cold currents turn to Heat

I can feel your Energy

 -------------------------------

WHEN YOU’RE BY MY SIDE

SNAKES & SHARKS DON’T BOTHER ME

FEARLESS BY YOUR SIDE

………..…….. WE ARE ELECTRIC

 

 

I looked up into the trees

Saw a big Red balloon starin’ at me

Followed it floatin’ in the breeze

Glowing and gloating with such ease

Dissipated into the Sun

Saw you were a different one

Darkness started its descent

Dirty Witches wail in suspense

 

 

 

I fear what I can’t see

Close my eyes to find your Heat

I can feel your Energy

 --------------------------

WHEN YOU’RE BY MY SIDE

SNAKES & SHARKS DON’T BOTHER ME

FEARLESS BY YOUR SIDE

………..…….. WE ARE ELECTRIC

 

 

I can’t tell if it’s you are me

A lost part or different entity

Either way I’m addicted to you

All other masses don’t matter too

As long as we are one, life is true

The sun is out, the skies are blue

Promise me never to part

I’ll give you my life, I’ll give you my Heart

 

 

I fear what I can’t see

When you’re close I feel your Heat

Can you feel my Energy?

 -----------------------

WHEN YOU’RE BY MY SIDE

SNAKES & SHARKS DON’T BOTHER ME

FEARLESS BY YOUR SIDE

………..…….. WE ARE ELECTRIC

 

SHE MOVES ME

 

I openly admit

I have a secret crush

She’s so beautiful

And magical to touch

She moves me

 

I’ve known her since I was just a babe

She’s grown with me

Even up to this very day

Been with me through thick and thin

 

When I’m glad

When I’m sad

When I pray

When I sin

She moves me

 

And when she’s inside me

She moves through me

I hear her

And she tells me what to do

 

She rocks me

She soothes me

She shocks me

Intox – icates me

Blues me

Woos me

Drives me crazy

 

--------------------- 

 

SHE MOVES ME

SHE MOVES ME

SHE MOVES ME

SHE MOVES ME

 

SHE’S MY SPECIAL LADY

SHE MAKES ME SMILE

WHEN SHE’S IN THE ROOM

I LIKE THE WAY

SHE MOVES ME

IF YOU COULD HEAR HER

YOU WOULD SEE

 

------------------------ 

 

She enters the room

With the boys in the band

First with plucks and beats

Then hums, strums, blows, & squeaks

 

She’s held steady with their

Hands, tongues, and beaks

She moves the room

As they play her sermon

 

So take a seat

Or get on your feet

Listen as she preaches

She’ll tell you in ways

 

Every night

And all days

Spreading clarity and truth

Dreams and daze

 

She’s a profit with a gamut

A devil in disguise

A ghost in your casket

Heaven in your eyes

Hell for your thunder

She rides, she rides, she rides

 

OPEN

 

I am open

Can you see me?

I am Open

I am bleeding

 

I have traveled

For so far

I’ve seen sunshine

I’ve seen storm

 

I am Open

I am here now

Here I stand

Can you see me?

 

I am bleating

Hear me now

I am Open

For you now

 

Please believe me

Reach for me

Feel me

Hold my Hand

 

I can see you

Eyes are shut

A shooting star

I’ve traveled so far

 

I can feel you

Here I am

I can breathe you

Won’t you breathe me?

 

I am Open

 

GOOD GIRL

 

If that was my man

I’d lick his quips

Equip his ego

Take tall sips

Over the River & through the Wood

To Grand mama’s house we’d go

 

With quivering tongue

And juicy tips

I’d bite his Lips

And brace those hips

Until we came home, wagging tall tales behind him.

 

If that was my man

I’d sing sweet to his dirges

Fulfill his urges

Taut his fair fiddle

Tied tight in the middle

No cause for care

And everywhere his heart would take him

I would surely go

 

If that was my man

I’d love him dearly,

Always, & not enough nearly

In him, around him,

Abundant,  abounding

I’d fill him, he’d feel me

What a good girl am I

 

SKIN

 

I have lost my skin

I wonder where she’s been

I lost her way back

-When

-I was

-A Little

-Girl

 

She used to fit so well

As far as I can tell

It’s been a long time since

-I’ve felt

-Comfort

-In my

-Skin

 

He used to hate her so

We underestimated her though

So now we’ve been

-Wand-er-

-ing a

-Dead end

-Road

 

I find her pieces here & there

I stick them back to me with care

I killed her way back

-When

-I was

-A Little

-Girl
