“Levels”


megaphone

 

Knock, knock knocking
faint
can you hear it
echoes
because its hollow inside
empty and not holding
like a kite which glides

knock, knock knocking
mellow
it permeates
the fleshy eardrum skin
can you hear the beat from within
adhesive to bass and strings

knock, knock knocking…
Normal
like dancing to speech
it is reserved
but always in reach
I am listening
I am your student
please teach

knock, knock knocking
loud
I need you to get here
excuses at this point
is nothing I want to hear
I know you know better
so do so with care

knock, knock knocking
screaming
when I see you
your dead
you hear…

“I Wish…”


I wish we all had more than enough
More than material wealth
I wish we could take care of ourselves
With so much to lose and so much to gain
cant we all be friends
Wish i could talk to my fallen again
I wish i didnt fit a profile
I wish the system would stop with the lies
I live in the land of the free
but when it comes to air…
It feels like they tryna take it away from me…
I wish to Silence all the tears
Dry all the cries
I wish we could try.
Love each other And kiss the hate goodbye…

“Silly Love”


CHORUS:

Silly love
I need your love
type i`ve been dreaming of;
makes me laugh
makes me cry
keeps me hot
to dry my eyes;
I need it there
to be the one
to make me mad
and make it fun;
I need it close
I need it far
I need you
wherever you are…

V1:
trying to reach you
let me know
is this the end
thought we got past all that
we were together
forever
down for whatever
cool, calm, collective
couldn’t be better
before anger & frustration
before blood & emotions racing
we were one
love was true
not dazed
not confused…

V2:
everything just came
never thought
what to do?
What can I do?
Things that I want to do
where to begin?
You tied me up
but still
i`m gone with the wind
fallen into the lust & sin
festering
don’t know if I can be without
ever again

V3:

you took
me & my heart away from here
took it somewhere
so far
told myself
I can`t be here?
You took me away from me
in that
loving you dearly
seems like we fell flat
bad times
we got that down pact
got to
got to make it up to you
sorry boo
can`t stand
the back and forth we do
but I needed it
like I need you
this…

Chorus:

silly love
I need your love
type i`ve been dreaming of
makes me laugh
makes me cry
keeps me hot
to dry my eyes
I need it there
to be the one
to make me mad
and make it fun
I need it close
I need it far
I need you
wherever you are…

Song Lyrics:

I’ve found that when I go into song writing mode I tend to keep it real simple, I don’t know if it’s a sub-conscience thing where I want everyone to understand or if it is a gift to break it down to just a linear understanding. I am always pleased with my results but knowing my mind goes so much deeper it has always been a question that I pose to myself. I guess it’s just one of the mysteries of me; the quest to be and do better, to do more. This is an attempt to breakdown one of those love-hate, bad for you but good for you, dysfunctional relationships.

As Always…
