things i’ve learned #’s 3 & 8

been gone so long now i can’t remember which way is home

which way i’m going or where i’m coming from

how much longer i’m gonna be gone

or lessons to learn from doing it all damn wrong

i know my youth is faded

but i’m still a child in my head

been tongue tied, akward & tripping over my two feet

found the place where perception & reality meet

smoke half finish cigarettes found out in the streets

short lived victories and eternal nagging defeat

there’s nothing i’d have traded

cause i know i’m already dead

(the secret to life is to not give a shit about that which truely doesn’t matter.)

i’ve said bye bye to everyone i know

i’ve still got some shame or at least i sure hope so

i’ve tried to just go with the flow

my my my, where does all the time go?

(when offered a beer, say yes, there’s likely to be more to come

say no and the offer may not present itself agian.)

judgement day

everyday is judgement day

everynight is a revelation

every morning that you wake up you relive all of creation

so what is your problem?

what’s really on your mind?

are you just searching for something you can’t seem to find?

 everybody is in it together

everybody has felt alone

everyone grows up knowing they can never go back home

so where are ya going?

& where have you gone?

is there really just something that you are running from?

so close your eyes and hold on tight

this isn’t the end

it’s so easy to take flight

but so hard to come back down agian

everything just keeps on coming

and then it leaves agian

when you try to hold it, it’ll slip right through your hands

so where are we going?

do you even know?

is there really somewhere you just gotta go?

so open your eyes, step into the light

my weary friend

it’s so easy to take flight

but so hard to come back down agian

"There’s a fascinating frailty of the human mind that psychologists know all about, called “argument from ignorance.” This is how it goes. Remember what the “U” stands for in “UFO”? You see lights flashing in the sky. You’ve never seen anything like this before and don’t understand what it is. You say, “It’s a UFO!” The “U” stands for “unidentified.”
But then you say, “I don’t know what it is; it must be aliens from outer space, visiting from another planet.” The issue here is that if you don’t know what something is, your interpretation of it should stop immediately. You don’t then say it must be X or Y or Z. That’s argument from ignorance. It’s common. I’m not blaming anybody; it may relate to our burning need to manufacture answers because we feel uncomfortable about being steeped in ignorance."

mowing dead grass

just like mowing dead grass just to make the time pass,

all youre doing is killing weeds and slightly moving leaves.

nothing’s new, so how are you?

the whole world is sleeping

but i’m too busy thinking

& all this stupid drinking

is driving me insane

the time it keeps on ticking

& i can feel myself sinking

into the shadow of your name

and i never learned how to play these childish games

i used to feel so free and clean

but now i’m stuck in some machine

&, oh, that sweet feeling

where are you now?

i don’t want to grow old & mean

but things aren’t always as they seem

& you can’t run on forever anyhow

no, i’m not ashamed but i ain’t too proud.

oh, it’s been a long time

oh, how’ve you been

it’s hard to wake up most mornings

& it’s hard to fall asleep at night

i just want to scream at the top of my lungs

i’m alive, i’m alive, i’m alive.

the sun is quickly rising

with such impeccible timing

& my body is still just lying

in the dewy grass

how long do you think i can make this feeling last?

oh, nothing’s new

oh, so how are you?

it’s hard to wake up most mornings

& it’s hard to fall asleep at night

i just wanna lift up my lonely voice

i’m alive, i’m alive, i’m alive
