Five and a Half Minute Hallway

My theme song.

LYRICS:

I live at the end of a 5 and 1/2 minute hallway
But as far as I can see you are still miles from me
In your doorway

And oh by the way
When the landlord came today
He measured everything
I knew he’d get it wrong
But I just played along
Cause I was hoping I would fix it all

But there’s only so far I can go
When you’re living in a hallway that keeps growing
I think to myself
5 more minutes and I’ll be there

Inside your door
But there’s more to this story
Than I’ve been letting on
There are words made of letters
Unwritten
And yes I forgive you
For leading me on

You can think of it like this
When you can’t resist
I’m in your hallway standing on a cliff
And just when I think I’ve found the trick
I’m tumbling
Like an echo

‘Cause there’s only so far I can go
When you’re living in a hallway that keeps growing
I think to myself
30 seconds and I’ll be there

I’ll be there.

Some Might Say

One of my favorite songs before I even became a teenager.

LYRICS:
Some might say that sunshine follows thunder
Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine
Some might say that we should never ponder
On our thoughts today cos they will sway over time

Some might say we will find a brighter day
Some might say we will find a brighter day

Cos I’ve been standing at the station
In need of education in the rain
You made no preparation, foiled my reputation once again
The sink is full of fishes
Cos she’s got dirty dishes on the brain
It was overflowing gently but it’s all elementary my friend

Some might say they don’t believe in heaven
Go and tell it to the man who lives in hell
Some might say you get what you’ve been given
If you don’t get yours I won’t get mine as well

Some might say we will find a brighter day
Some might say we will find a brighter day

Cos I’ve been standing at the station
In need of education in the rain
You made no preparation foiled my reputation once again
The sink is full of fishes
Cos she’s got dirty dishes on the brain
It was overflowing gently but it’s all elementary my friend

Some might say,
You know what some might say.

The Card Cheat

He only wanted more time
Away from the darkest door,
But his luck it gave in
As the dawn light crept in
And he laid on the floor.

Because we’ve all got a couple of hours to spare.

Oceania

This whole album has been my soundtrack recently.

Lyrics:
No one can love you
Cause no one can free you
Lovers can’t touch you
Cause lovers might reach you, yeah
I’m so alone, so alone
But better than a wretched world
Better than a broken pearl
I’m so alone, so alone
Better than I ever was
Better than a just laid cause

Night may keep you sworn
May bring you storms
From chest to stern
The jouneys rest
The warnings circumspect
With dreams ahead
With dreams ahead
And still she’s gone
And still she’s gone

Night will fill your breast
Negate your best
With dreams ahead
With dreams ahead

Oh would I follow you
How could I have ever doubted you?
Sweet baby, nurture me
Sweet lady, if you please
Try the way on me
Try the way on me
Try the way on me
Try the way…
Skirt the cliffs of your illusion
Find the faith on me
My mistake as the last remaining soldier
Was to take the place of you
Love the way
love the way and learn
Try the way

Cast off your indecision
Face to face we breathe
Try the way
Cast off your indecision
Face to face we breathe

Lafter

This track was created with a few of my friends. Bongo drums, and my buddy Bronson making funny noises. During playback Bronson couldn’t stop laughing, so we decided to record the laughter too. The end result is a guy laughing childishly at himself. A little creepy. Completely ridiculous.

Musical Nature

Tired lands;
Soundwaves of
Tired songs.

Bracing for Winter.
But the brace has
Remained too long.

EQ slightly off . . .

Phase cancellations
Have an ending
To pull off.

Quiescent leaves
Throw the spark off the weave.

Winter is coming
For a landscape bereaved.

Tuesday War Song

Yeah, I know, cliche cliche. I still love The Misfits . . . selectively. At times I’m actually disappointed that the majority of their songs are less than two minutes long. Hybrid Moments would be a favorite of mine, with Last Caress at a close second. Cliche indeed.
Briley is staying here at my house for a few days. Everything’s fine for her at home, we just decided she needed a vacation from her parents. I’m running on minimal sleep right now–use your imagination. Or rather, don’t. Seems a bit odd that (mostly) strangers are trying to picture exactly what it is we’ve been doing. Then again, what we do may well be the opposite of what you think. Who knows? You don’t. I sure as hell don’t know shit right now. I need a nap. I need more coffee. I deserve a trophy or something.
