CHORUS

I scarcely know myself
Since you answered my call
Doesn't matter much
I know you now
That's good enough

Where is this all going ?
Do I even care, I think no way
I'm falling through the timelines and blasting off to space
I'm moving past that looking glass
When you move dimensions that way
Fear does not exist and I can walk on air
Life does not seem the same and I don't really care

I don't want to stop, even on dark days
Even when you won't give in and give me my way
Inpatience is my problem and you always make me wait
You intend it to torture and I love it just the same

Give me all you have and then the, take away
Being the Master will keep you in good stead
You are going to have to give, it all to me
Keep me nourished in that cell
For I scarcely know myself
Since you answered my call
Doesn't matter much, I know you now and that's good enough

Dimensions

CHORUS
My hearts a fire and I'm all aglow
Waiting for you I know you will show


I never worry where you've been
You always return we can not take leave
Back to back and hand to hand
I'm with you, you I stand
Absolute

Anything you say or do nothing can touch what I have for you
All we need we have no want
Separate us and the balance is gone
You are my anchor I am our sail
Together combined unbreakable will

We don't conquer we just breath our natural state when we be
Justified to no one what we do, thy own be true
Sparks fly and walls combust when we come close there is no fuss
Magnitude comes overhead a presence a sense were already dead

We speak in a language that is ours alone
We beat a rhythm twice what was born
Shifting you is shifting me
A combination that has set us free

Aglow

CHORUS

The air I'm breathing is sludge so thick
Oxygen count and me out in the fifth
All I want to do is get back to you
Fuss no fight to me it's all delight

The smell of sticky wet leather
Nausea so deep its in my back
You knocked me down
I'm flat out on the mat


I'm shifting gears
I don't want to move on from this
I want to stay
I want to play
I don't want to ever leave you
I don't want to ever leave you
I'm shifting I turning around

I'm crawling back I'm stepping down
I'm so alone when I'm without you
Never had this feeling I'm sure the cure is you
I'm shifting gears I'm coming back round

I don't want to be
I only want you and me
I'm shifting gears and I'm 180 bout face
Your the one who will take my grace
Strip me down take what's yours
I'm not here I'm no chore

Drown in me and have, have it all
I'll replenish, send, give you more
I'm shifting gears and I'm wide open all my doors
No walls here no one else in my home

SHIFTing

CHORUS
I don't think you aim to see
Until you come I am not free
Locked in a trance of scribe and dare
Relinquish this grip and have mercy, do spare


Only you only your key
I'm on the rack until you rescue me
Deep is this hole
Fortune the pit
Pit of my plexus pit of the earth
Searching for breath depleted and scorned
Pick up the call I'm sending you

Whips were an hour ago spikes I'm not even blue
Take all your turmoil and love it back to you
Reach out and give me your hand
I'm tired weary and confused
Spiritual attributes elude

Their spraying me down for the third time
Blood use to frighten me now it's my shrine
Divine says free will, only if your inclined

Otherwise it's a black hole for me
I will not rest and darkness won't let me be
Without you, it's black hole for me

AIM

CHORUS
The weight of the blade
Against my inner flesh
Roll of the whip
Slap the surface
Vibrations radiating
Suffocating


Choking betrayal
Betrayal choking
I will not die
Survival emminent
Brushed away brushed away
Gone from vision
No longer in sight


Past is the longing
When I took flight
Desperate hollowness and a cold, cold base
Your name a faded memory, I never speak
Privately a moan, I weep

A yearning so deep
A depth I could never escape
A state I wish to keep
An allegiance to your seeing
My life now without meaning

A breathless breath
A breath of death
Let me sleep if my Master not keep
Bellow he not for me
Cold are his echoes haunting me

Everywhere and no where
Not a care
All that I am not
All that fills me

Return and rise my sun again
I your devotee

WEIGHT

CHORUS
You collected money
The nerve of me
That's funny


You can love me
Your heart will never leave me
You can't have me
So settle down

Don't push it
You'll only regret it
Yah your man enough to get it
So I am
So forget it

A more lucid point of view
Wake up and smell the brew
It will never be
You've confused my words with me

Ah! Ah! But you had your mind setted
Should have asked before you bet it
I never met it
So I'll move on

Blows fall wind in August
Cold nights are upon us
She's fighting for your hard earned
She knows no boundaries
She's a claw girl

Well now she's all yours
Happy trail, best wishes, amour
I'm happy to avoid her
Following me through the corridors

Did she get a good look at my face?
Pounding the stairwell, like a race
Following to see which direction I go
Confirming her suspicions are low

You're a match of ugly
Go away you repulse me
I have the nerve thats funny

Oh! Oh! Making money
Ah! Ah! For my baby
Oh! Oh! Won't let me be lazy
Fancy places for my baby

Ah! Ah! He has me running
Rymthing for my supper
I, I, I, am a pauper
Don't need to be a show stopper
Ah! Ah! My baby's imported fauder
I bang away its his law there

Oh! Oh! Oh! A villa on the moon
Unicorn carriages in bloom
Silk and satins all he wanted
Bring him more if he don't want it

Ah! Ah1 Better start running
I have no patience for your honey
It was not me

You goated me
Planting your words carefully
Caught every line of opportunity
I ignored
Hoping a stand up guy for me

Translucent I see
Told you from the beginning
All I needed was honesty
Just a tease, I see

For you and your friends to breathe
I guess thats where my trust in you, waned in me
All light, what a fool
The decieve on me
Like I'm blind, no senses for me

NERVE

CHORUS
Forgive me I love you
My man out of reach
Have you for sport
To your knees
I couldn't
Yes you do
Yes you do

You sitting there all truffle and tea
Staring a relinquish out of me
Yes you do
Yes you do

Coming on light
No darkness emits
Bringing home power
Could not believe it exists
Yes you do
Yes you do

My mind it, it can not comprehend
What you're serving
I swallow again
Sweetest food
Sweetest food

Always teasing, never come near
Demanding your words
Be all I hear
Yes you do
Yes you do

Then you caution
To not compete
Or you will leave
You will leave
You will leave

COMING ON LIGHT

CHORUS
There couldn't be another way
Forget my harm
You went away
I've lost my charm
It's all for fun


You're annoyed
You made the game
Black market style
Then folded soon
Why did you try?

Now you're gone
I've lost my charm
You could never play
Forget my harm
Its all for fun

You went away
You led astray
I can't go wrong

There could'nt be another way
I am human, though you'd never say
I've lost my charm
Its all for fun
Intrude allude

There could'nt be another way
Forget my harm
I can't go wrong
I've lost my charm
Its all for fun
Away from you

ITS ALL FOR FUN

About Me

Bio

I am just embarking on a pursuit of turning my hobbies into profit. I enjoy all forms of writing. Writing lyrics was the first at home hobby writing, that came upon me. I hail from a celtic household, in what was a small settlement of catholics, way out in the country. My home had many instruments. My others mostly played the instruments and I picked up the beer cans. Often was practice after dinner and on holidays, to sit around and take turns being musical. Play a instrument or sing a song or do a dance. I have written off and on for many years. Now I'm just doing what makes me happy.

CV/History

Resume not relevant here, as I have not used my wordsmithing for creative gigs. All employment, prior to 2017, was in corporate customer service. On the front line, dealing with the general public. I'm required to spend time alone to concieve, however I really enjoy being around people, too. I love the variety of walks, of life. Offers plenty to learn and even hostile individuals offer a kick. Optimistic by nature.
