Words

The American Song

Katrina unwinding carrying her scorn

Fleeing the pain of our own enemy storm 

Holding on to freedom as if it were all we could own

Riding that sleeper like a wild horse in flight

Scuffing heals through every crossing we fight

Was then I wondered why your eyes froze open

Caught your mirror of words reflecting back someone I could not trust in me

Bleeding me free

Your thoughts spilled over flooding your mind

I heard them escape before escape was denied

Teaching the meaning of shame in your confessions

Your fear was something more than you could make sense

You felt it cut the bone of your splintered defense

As your story lay open ready to be stolen 

Caught your mirror of words reflecting back someone I could not find in me

Bleeding me free

Saw your father standing with scars in his hands

Showing his injured love seek revenge

Offering each blow as if they hold some kind of glory

Your mother in the corner her shadow buried alive

Viciously demeaning any rescue she tried

As your cuts reveal loves bitter rage repeating 

Caught your mirror of words reflecting back someone I could not feel in me

Bleeding me free

Knew where this was going, could feel from your lie

Deception promising you were so justified

A fist for a fist, a wound for a wound, the loving love kills, 

Now I look up see the ice crack your eye

Convincing everyone its tears from your cry

You’re just another boy who thinks he’s red-blooded carbon 

Caught your mirror of words reflecting back someone who was lost in me

Bleeding me free

Your lover still waiting for the reason to appear

Lingering on the last moment to come clear

Why you could never say why you were leaving

She thinks she see’s your face on the billboard of ninth

Where there was a sale of a lover for a bribe

Did you take the money? Tell me did it feel like forgiveness?

Caught your mirror of words reflecting back someone I could not love in me

Bleeding me free

 

Orion Sky

I’ve heard theres nothing, at the end

Between your last breath and the time I am left

No day or night, no love nor grief

No memories fever there way out of me

Paintings we hung, have drawn themselves free

Photographs we captured, found their liberty

Our love once mirrored, has no more reply

Staring back at me your Orion sky

Take me with you when you go

Take me with you when you leave

You ain’t coming back 

My voice cannot try, to write our song

Where even sorrow, don’t know how to belong

Please tell our history, there's no more to make

When there ain’t no future that we can awake

The avenues, have gathered up our strides

No longer can I walk where we used to confide

Our footsteps just chalk marks in the night

Proof to me now that our love has died

Take me with you when you go

Take me with you when your gone

Tell me how can I find you

Although I knew everything needs to end

Somehow I thought forever, could try to pretend

Our time nothing more, than grains of sand 

Your hourglass heart, I carried in my hands

Take me with you when you go

Take me with you when Orion 

Has called you home, called you home
