While We Blame Death

While we blame Death

And her gruesome scent

Suffering makes merry

To her heart’s content

The Blue Sky Calls My Name

All my life I have feared

I may lose all that’s dear

But now all that seems so clear

As I lie on this rough bed

As I count my final breaths

Death has lost all of its dread

Oh mother, you know I love you

Tell Dad I love him too

Oh lord, it was a thrilling ride

Going out with love and pride

Tell me, what is that sound?

Shots fired all around

All is changed, all is same

The blue sky calls my name

Every dream I had in me

Everything I wished to be

Are now lost in memories

Breaking free from all my chains

All is changed, all is same

With the sky calling my name

My Blue-Eyed Son

Where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
The angels are a-calling
Tell them darling, you’re still not done
The rains are now a-falling
Your home not lays on this barren land
So little here to keep
You from flying. I fail to withstand
Your mother left to weep
God must love you a lot I suppose
Earth’s not for everyone
For the last time, I’ll hold you close
Hold you, my blue-eyed son

Goodbye, My Friend

I was born free and happy. The day was bright and clear

Now I’m stranded and lonely. My heart’s full of fear

Tired of screaming, shouting, waiting for the end

So long, we’ll meet again. Goodbye, till then, my friend

My house is all broken and I’m lying on the street

All my little wishes and plans are left incomplete

Lost everything I had. There’s nothing more to defend

So long, we’ll meet again. Goodbye, till then, my friend

Something’s wrong about this world. ‘Twas never meant for me

I adore the open sky. That’s where I want to be

Can you hear the clouds thunder as they slowly descend?

So long, we’ll meet again. Goodbye, till then, my friend

Do you remember the days when we were wild and young?

Now they’re just memories of merry songs we sung

I wish I could be reckless but my body can’t pretend

So long, we’ll meet again. Goodbye, till then, my friend

All my little secrets are coming home with me

I have always known the truth but it never set me free

Just for another moment, every dime I have I’ll spend

So long, we’ll meet again. Goodbye, till then, my friend

My Name’s On Her Lips

She’s got me in the morning

She keeps me during the day

She finds me in the night

She doesn’t let me go away

My name’s on her lips

She blows through the window

She knocks at the door

She crawls through the mouse hole

She screams through the floor

My name’s on her lips

Her nails pierce my veins

Her eyes; my soul

Her nose sniffs my sins

My body, she controls

My name’s on her lips

My name’s in her thoughts

My name’s in her dreams too

My name’s on her list

“Peggy, is that you?”

My name’s on her lips
