Stand Up and FightThe pen is mightier than the sword
But actions speak louder than words
So stand up and fight
Or sit down and write
Either way, day or night
You gotta fight for what is right
No matter how impossible the odds
No matter how hard the jobs
You have to man up and make a change
Even if your idea seems strange
All ideas seemed wrong at the time
But most have changed peoples' minds
Like the world being flat
Or raw meat giving birth to rats
If you want to change the world or make something right
All you need to do is fight
The Gallows of HeartacheAt the gallows of heartache I will be hung
My love and praise will never again be sung
For you've stolen my heart and, now, my life
I'll have no more of this endless strife
This strife of mine for companionship
It is finally over, I can finally quit
I'll have no more hopes, but no more fears
So goodbye my sorrow, goodbye my tears
I should thank you for bringing my death
And I shall upon my final breath
Because I have always loved you
Even though this is all you could do
To let me feel this love for you no more
To make me feel better than ever before
Peace awaits me at the gallows of heartache.
WaitingThree doors down at the end of the road
there is a little old lady living in her lonely abode.
She waits day and night for her love to return.
She sits all the while too broken to mourn.
She used to know her love would never come back
but the strain on her heart made her mind crack.
Now every day is the day after he went away
but he will be back; it will all be okay.
He promised her that he would be fine
but a tractor trailer can't stop on a dime.
The trucker missed a stop sign and hit the man's car
so the love of her life is now in the stars
always looking at his wife with tears in his eyes
until the day they rejoin in the skies.
The Last SurvivorsThe night the dead did rise
The world was filled with cries
Begging for help and mercy
They knew they would become zombies
If they were bitten
So there was no quittin'
They banded together and gathered many tools
Anything that could kill the shuffling fools
2x4's, axes, knives, batons, and guns
The prepared wore armor so heavy they couldn't run
They used swords and hammers since they don't use ammo
Was there a way for them to get bitten - NO
They lasted longer than anyone they knew
And then they knew what they had to do
They went city to city fighting until they grew old
Their weapons grew too heavy; their armor too cold
They stayed locked up until their food depleted
Removed their armor, but their bones couldn't be heated
So they picked up some sticks and stepped outside
And were swarmed upon by a murderous tide
The Old DaysWhat ever happened to those good ole' days
When kids actually went outside to play
And you didn't get a cellphone as soon as you could walk
Back when phones were just used to talk
Not text, play games, and surf the internet
When it was good-hearted fun for you to bet
When you respected your elders even if they weren't right
When you didn't get sued after having a fight
And the loser didn't come back for you with a gun
When you were expected to stand up for yourself, not run
When it was okay to kill someone to protect yourself
Back when you weren't judged by your wealth
Back whenever men weren't supposed to cry
Way back in the day when it was an honor to die
While you were performing your patriotic duty
When children didn't make out for fear of cooties
And people tried to help the old and homeless
Today's generation seems to have forgotten all of this
We need to teach them to dwell on the past
Or none of these ideas are going to last
Duck Tape ParadeThe way you forced your way into my heart
I should have sued you for B&E
You stole my love and packed it in your cart
Then rode into the sunset like an old western movie
But I honestly can't complain
Since you already owned it anyway
Now holding my heart, you cross the terrain
Leaving to love another day
Will you ever come back to me?
Or will you settle down in some city?
Will you forget all about this cowboy country
And will you forget all about me?
Or will you return and give me back my heart?
Say you were just borrowing it for a day or two
To see if it still beat for you when we were apart
Just to know that my love would never fall through
In Memory of a FriendYou wanted to be dead
So you put a gun to your head
And pulled the trigger while on your bed
Your mom ran in and all she saw was red
You didn't just kill yourself, you killed your friends and family
None of us survived that day emotionally
If you would have asked we could have helped you
There was nothing we wouldn't do
To take your pain away
And help you live another day
You always seemed so happy, you always smiled
Was it just that day or were you sad all the while?
No one imagined it would end that way
And no one wants to see the day
Their friend or kid is in a grave
If only you could have been saved
If only you wanted to be saved...
You Took My Heart While I Took Your RingsWalking through the market one day
And behold, what a find:
A maiden so fair, I cannot say
I wish that you would be mine
As I close in on you
My heart starts to roam
I wish that this could be true:
Us together in our home
Side by side, I know it can't be
So I stick my hand deep in your pocket
Today, I still wish you were with me
But now I have another gold ring and a silver locket
WithdrawalsThere is a tightness in my chest
And I find it hard to breath
For my mind keeps on
Making me watch you leave
I always get the shakes
When I think of you
I wake up begging for your return
Every night when I dream of you
I'm having withdrawals
I've gone without your love for too long
And my body aches more and more
With each passing day that you're gone
It's the Little ThingsI miss your quirky remarks,
I miss the little things you tell me,
Just to make me smile,
I love knowing that things,
Remind you of me,
That sometimes I am missed,
It's a good feeling.
I love how you indulge me,
Let me play with your fingers,
Hold your hand,
How you let me snuggle with you,
Because I need a pair of arms around me,
Cuz it makes me feel so content.
It's okay if you don't love me today,
Cuz I believe someday I'll grow,
Into someone you can love.
It's okay if you don't love me today,
Cuz I just want to let you know,
It's the little things you do,
That brightens up my day.
There's no one quite like you,
You're an exception,
You have become special,
No one can take your place.
I've only known such pure love,
With a few in the world-
You make me smile,
I can relax, feel safe.
Some days I question why,
You are still here,
Why I continue to stay,
But I think its so much bigger,
Then the reasons I think up.
Times of true affection are rare,
But they are some of the bes
The Thing About LoveLove is a funny thing. I never gave it much thought until very recently, when I started feeling it myself. But love has so many meanings that it can hardly be classified as just a thing, or even an idea. It's not something you just wake up and realize you're feeling, and it's not something to be taken lightly.
Love is not just between a man and a woman, nor does is relate only to romance. There's family love, brother and sister love. And of course, there's the friendly love, either between general friends or the greatest of friends. There's the love we feel for our pets when they sleep in with us or perform trick for our entertainment
And there is the matter of love-making, or whatever it is that you want to call it. The way I see it, love rarely has much to do with sex. These days, it's nothing special, and it's hardly given a second thought. Any two people, in love or not, can have sex. But not everyone can appreciate the human body for all its beauty. When two people are truly
Words of GlassWords of Glass
You got what you wanted
I can't believe I trusted you
Not only that but I gave you the chance
I done with chances
This time I am not turning back
Of course you will think:
"She will come back-she always has"
I am done
Playing your game, believing your lies.
Have a good life, without me in it.
(not like you cared much to begin with....)
White CanvasWhy, does the very thought of this
Bring out a cold uneasiness into me
Is the change good, is the new slate pure?
Is this really free from the all the defilement
That I have brought into myself
Was I weak? Am I even strong now?
All I know now is that..
I was nothing before...at least that is what I made myself
But now....I think I have finally made myself something
Finally just finally
I made me
I made the colors I wanted
They are splattered, bright and flamboyant.
Even missing the canvas completely
I finally released it
I made it imperfect
Goodbye : )
Trusted SecretThe words you said belong only to me
I won't let anyone have them
I will protect them, cherish them
People will ask over and over again
So they can dig up your past
So it can define you
I am not one of them, can't you see?
I am not hiding behind a mask of falsehood.
I am right here
There is no one else
I am always here to help carry the burden you are so desperate to hide
You just got to let me.
I am always here for you_
Hollow FighterHollow Fighter
What is it that you want
You want me to stop and drop everything for you
You want me to stop believing in myself
To make it seem like you did all the work
I am done with this mess
"I did not tell them to do this."
Stop with your lies
I finally confirmed this
You were the person behind this all along
You sick person
I trusted you
I loved you
I cared for you
Thank you for teaching me a lesson on how evil people can get
I am done now-and now moving on..~
Did I Lose it?I remember this, better than I should
I try and forget, erase it from my mind
But it comes back-just as I knew it would
I become frightened because the very thing I am hiding from is myself
I wish I could tell you this
That I am crazy and you should stop wasting your time
But everything in me wants you to still be around me
I know now though, that you don't plan on leaving me
But this sickness-this evil in me
Will not accept the fact that you will be there for me
But as I write this-almost in a pleading voice
Please don't leave me...
Last DanceShall we dance tonight?
Shall we dance for one last time?
Can I ask you to stay with me for this song?
Let's dance this night away
I would love to dance all night long
Let's put all those feelings back in our hands
Back in some place where our love still stands
Don't kiss my tears, let them run from my face
Just keep on dancing
Dancing to the star trace
The rhythm will lead us back in time
When I was yours and you were mine
Slowly moving, slowly kissing
I can be like this forever
My heart like an old clock, still ticking
But something keeps breaking
Baby I wanna hold you in my arms
I want to see us flying back to stars
Rushing slowly we're dancing in nowhere place
Last sound of music finally had reached me
I am so empty when I'm looking on your teary face
Wish I never had chance to see how you feel
It kills me seeing like it's killing you
We finished dancing underneath the moon
So I shall say thank you
For dance, for love, for life that I can't forget
For those mistakes I do regret
SensesI am happy
Can't you see?
My mind seems to have nothing but the simple thoughts of you in them
~Wondering if you are okay-wounder if you would like this.
My nose takes the scent of you, as you walk past me each and every time
~Giving a friendly smiles as you do this~
My eyes just seemed to be glued to you, drawn into your brown eyes
~Taking in your features- almost drawing my own mental picture of you~
My lips speak nothing but you
~"How are you today?"~
My hand touches you and gives me butterflies and a deep sense of warmth
Can't you see.
That you are almost all of me already.
I Hope to See You AgainAlthough we're apart,
no matter how far the distance,
in my mind and heart
we are forever in this instance:
We're locked in a passionate kiss,
running our fingers through the others' hair.
If I only had one wish
I would have stopped time right then and there,
but now you're gone to a far away place
and I'm still sitting here...
I'm always thinking of your face
but I won't cry another tear
since it can't bring you back
from your home in the sky.
I want to bring you back;
it's not that I lack the will to try
it's just that I don't practice necromancy
since I've read Frankenstein...
Instead I went down to the pharmacy
and I had them give me a line
of the strongest pill they own.
Now I snort it all up
and I reached for the phone
to call 911, but I don't pick it up.
I'm dying really quick
from an overdose.
It's not that I'm mentally sick,
I just want you close;
I want you by my side again.
Let it be heaven or hell,
suicide might be a sin
but it will do me well
if I'm able to see your face
Keep in Touch!
