With alluring beauty, you stare down at me
With wicked scars on my face, I can barely put up a fight
Thou not cursed with spots but blessed with thee
And so many lovers’ hearts you fill in the lonely night

There you are, no law could ever bind you
And here I am, in the midst of all kinds of rules
In my state of despair, I cannot hear the flute play true
While money has refused to part company with the fools

I fail to find the light as I look too hard at the closed door
Discomfort is all I know. Everything is else is just unknown
The shattered pieces of my ego lie on the floor
I take solace in knowing that even you don’t have any light of your own

A Death Doesn’t Make A Difference Anymore

A man is dying
No eyes are crying
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

A woman is burning
No heads are turning
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

A child falls asleep
There’s no one to weep
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

Thousands are killed everyday
Toss the newspaper away
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

Johnny took a gun
Shot his friend for fun
He’s all of twenty one
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

Talking about his wife
Johnny took another life
Stabbed her with a knife
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

You were so in pain
Promised it’ll never happen again
But your promises are in vain
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

For then came Michael
And repeated the cycle
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

Now you promise more
I’ve heard it all before
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

You’re just a spectator
I’m just a narrator
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

So mind your own score
Act as you’ve done before
A death doesn’t make a difference anymore

Ray Of Light

I’m standing on top of a mountain
Beyond the reach of the light of sun
I look down and all I see is black
And I see no reason to turn back

Everything is just as I want it to be
So quiet and serene and calm and free
And I know there are folks scared of the dark
Waiting for a little ray of light to spark

Darkness isn’t as dark as it seems
Or demons and spirits, echoes and dreams
No, and I am not afraid of the night
What I really fear is the light

Little Joys

All have gone through it but none cares to warn
Is it something that one must learn the moment that they’re born?
Happiness is as elusive as the dreams that you chase
Follow the path of others and you will never leave behind a trace

Looking at these photographs makes me believe I can smile
I wish I could be careless and free like him once in a while
I wish there was a market where laughter could be bought and sold
Even for a little moment of joy, I’d give away all my gold

Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it
But once time has flown past you, it is best to forget it
When I was young, I longed to grow up and be a man
And now that I have aged, I wish to be a child again

May God Be With You – 3

I’ve noticed a change in you
It’s there for all to see
You’re a fool to think I can be deceived
You are just not what you used to be

Is this intentional?
Or have you just gone with the flow?
I didn’t see this coming
Or I would have warned you so

You find these lights charming
And your friends do too
The brighter these lights shine
The faster they blind you

You’re free to choose your own path
I know you can tell white from black
No matter how deep a hole you fall in
Remember, you can always come back

So, go and make your own way, darling
I know you will find all that you want to
I’ll always watch your back
And may God be with you too

The Fire Within

I’ve begun to miss you, I must admit
Darling, don’t you miss me too?
Everyone seems to be talking about it
But not a word I’ve spoken about you

Sometimes I wish I was dead
Without you, life is incomplete
They don’t know the secrets we shared
Are buried until the next time we meet

Are you enjoying your trip to heaven above?
It caused me a lot of pain
They say we were never really in love
For I will gladly burn you alive again
