Keep me company when the day is done We lost some battles here..     but our hearts have won A winner is dreamer who never gives up Try your luck cause we’re not here for long The rapid fires, develish ticking clocks Stay with me now, before it all will turn into dust Keep me company     with a buoying grace your heart of lightness will     keep the ghosts at bay A winner is dreamer who never gives up try your luck cause we’re not here for long The rapid fires, develish ticking clocks stay with me now, before it all will turn into dust Graphs about charts     Charts about graphs a figure eight that lasts Poems about math       Math made of poems Deconstructing our love But are you holding your cards to your chest? Are you giving it your best? These develish ticking clocks cause we’re not here for long

THE BEST OF TIMES It’s the best of times it’s the best you’ll ever have so celebrate the golden sublimated sounds dance till the morning after A brief crack of light the upward lightning is stretching Stop worrying about wether you’re running out of time to do everything you wanted Oooh Travelling the best of storms Travelling the far and the close by Full of meaning and full of joy Young again, young again, When her heart is gone ran off with another love Like the sunset bloom Need some space, some breathing room like California, California, Stop worrying about wether you’re running out of time to do everything you wanted Celebrate the golden sublimated sounds dance till the morning after

THE GOLDEN LINING Colours colliding,  beautiful chaos Random collections, drawing skyscraper trees My skeleton sketchbook, bycicle wheel fountains Everything’s golden if that’s what you want it to be Destiny is like a boat sailing the chaos dazzle painted with circled stripes Always stay hungry and stay foolish Stay young don’t let the fire die The sea is dancing, inhaling the fire Collapsing chaos, I can almost feel your smile Turning tragedy into triumph  even the silver lining is golden Have some faith that you will belong beacons of hope that’ll guide you home They glitter in the reflected light of the sunrise The words I write they keep me sane I let the meaning all escape Run with the haunted, sleep with the verbs Let the vowels be undisturbed Drink the colours, feel the waves How all reason has escaped to far off places where it glitters in the reflected light of the sunrise Let me see you dance

Forever The nature of things, can’t put my heart to rest The longest now, try to catch it while you can If clouds were trees, I’d climb them fearlessly If hearts were drums, I’d beat them like a charm I wanna feel this way forever Gotta hit this town and go Get in on the action  Like a figure 8 we’re lasting let’s put the time on hold make it everlasting Nothing so bad - it can take the F out of Fill Everything up,  I need it all so it won’t stop   I wanna feel this way forever Gotta hit this town and go Get in on the action  Like a figure 8 we’re dancing let’s put the time on hold make it everlasting The way we get by it’s a tender life And I can almost feel your smile Let’s fool the reapers Let’s fool time Let’s pick the long straw

THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS The perfect light that shines on you The way the colours dance in dedication to the paint that has been searching like a fool for answers, clues, a cauldron of temptation And the ferocious strokes and colours make me feel alive In the garden of earthly delights Turning the big corner, Round the bend tonight Watch the giant birds Strange fruits Organic shapes Cavorting nudes Hybrid creatures bathe in the lakes saying, good things come to those who cannot wait in the dead of night I never felt more alive In the garden of earthly delights I never felt more alive

A GREAT DAY Are you selling out Just because you can Just because it’s there for you to grab Free but compromised Did you ride along just because you could just because you think you should try everything It’s a great day to leave everything behind, and see how wonderful this life can be It’s a great day to leave everything behind, and feel completely free from reality even when it pulls you down even when the rocks don’t roll even when the squares are round even when the beat drops out It’s a great day to leave everything behind and see how wonderful this life can be It’s a great day to leave everything behind and feel completely free from reality It’s a great day to leave It’s a great day to leave or are you selling out? ------ Do you want all of everything you need to have it now Do you want all of everything enough for you? Do you want all of everything you need to get it now all, all, all of everything you know I need it now all, all, all of everything the golden rule is to be consumed by you

ANIMALS A new moon rising, looking up, to a forrest canopy like christmas time in hell, we are happy to be free The animals the’re off, people caught in zoo’s Reproducing art, abundant piles of food Step it up a notch, underneath the moon More bang for your buck, caught up by the rules Into nature like Walden pond, a suitcase full of trees the smoke and mirrors that man has fought, behold its vanity The animals the’re off, people caught in zoo’s Reproducing art, abundant piles of food Step it up a notch underneath the moon More bang for your buck, caught up by the rules The kaleidoscope is shaking The pieces all in flux The silverlining clouds that All drift off in the dark

KEEP UP A list of things I should forget that just don’t matter Fortunateness, worried times are getting better The sun is beaming seemingly easy metaphores The silhouettes of circumstances written in chords Keep up Answers won’t get you where you want to end up before your time is up Keep up Don’t let there rules let you end up where you just don’t belong Suppose I wasn’t there at all would everything stop? Turn the dice and toss and turn your life into art Keep up Answers won’t get you where you want to end up before your time is up Keep up Don’t let these rules let you end up where you just don’t belong Keep Up Floating high above the cloudy shaded mountain tops Keep up keep the hope machine running, longing, never giving up Keep up

Being and nothingness The first moment when you realize that your heart belongs to someone else at times I’d never thought I’d ever get it back The scent of early spring when you remember that all these things here will not last watching life going by too fast, too fast, too fast The scent of early spring, remember.. don’t forget

So who this girl you’re with where are you going now what’s this song you’re in roads and stairs and clouds And suddenly we’re all just gone off  to another part of town then this whole story is off dead and gone and drowned in its own story lines We’re all round the bend juggling with the looping time and then they’re all about to ask where we’re going now what are we about to find The soundtrack to your life So who’s this girl you’re with where are you going now what’s this song you’re in sunken feathered clouds and suddenly we’re all just gone off to another part of town and this whole story is off dead and gone and drowned in its own story lines fast forward rewind juggling with the looping time and then they’re all arriving fast from all parts of town they’re all gonna wear this timeless sunset suit tonight
