Open your eyes

Open your eyes
I’ll give you my reasons
The names Gretl Feeson
And today i’ll be speaking
About war and combat
Take Syria to start
They’re gassing civilians
Tearing families apart
Then what of Iraq
Isis attacks
These problems and acts
Make world powers react
Retract! Retract!
These statements aren’t facts
Another loser piece of trash
I see no problem with that

Under our skin

saturno-devorando-a-su-hija1.jpg

Lifes obscene
It always has been
For better or worse
Here we’re still standin’
There are many many others
Always flirting with sin
I’m really only here for the thrill of the win
So when you all come in
Place your tongues in the bin
I’m not even kiddin’ here’s a knife to begin
I’ll even get a phone ‘n’ get an ambulance ready
I always feel so nervous when I sound this unsteady
Already one grins
Blood drips from their chin
It’s obvious such problems
Haunt us under our skin

Hungry

timthumb

And what about the city dwellers
The swelling on natures skin
Or what about the body bruises
When humanity forced itself upon you
News plants seed
Need breeds deed
Fresh to feed the storyteller

Are you hungry
Friend
Foe
I’ll tell you everything I know

And afterwards…

Alone
I wandered
Gawking
Beating heart
Felt it swell
Such eclectic seasons
Tall tale make believes
Of both rain and sun
A crude wind
Beating down
Talking
Laughing
Taunting
