Is Cool

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

The night was cold

as I rode along

through the streets

where the energy is flowing

in the distance

what I had to go

 

his thoughts

her innocence

where does it all go

 

Get up and defend

I am afraid

Fear of nothing

Has made me small

Fear of nothing

Has made me small

 

I hear the words

I am just not

capable, not capable

of anything anymore

do you love, from afar

 

my reason

my father

bye bye

 

High up on the hill

there is man

there is a flag

in my dreams

 

I thought he had a plan

on the flat lands

there is only steam

trust me I am your friend

I see some of what he means

 

The night was cold I see some of what he means

Any Other Way, Song Lyrics  (from Greedy Pig album)

 

I get up and dream of unimportant things

Rock stars that die

I feel the day moving

There is so much to do today

 

Some part of me wants to reach

The things I see

My friends seem distant

I am near

 

Sand is moving through the glass

We never seem to know before or after anything

I am sharp but this seems vague

I want to dance and sway

There is nothing I could say

Make it any other way

 

This systems for storing and retrieving

Seems so in adequate

The information only goes around

I want to move

Some part of me wants to reach

The things I see

 

It all comes to push

And doesn’t matter

The systems has changed

Not sure if I am waiting

Don’t think so any more

 

I am sharp but this seems vague

I want to dance and sway

There is nothing I could say

Make it any other way

 

Any other way

 

Get up and dream

unimportant things

rockstars disappear

Feel the day disappear, so much to do

 

Some part of me wants to reach

The things I see

Some part of me wants to reach

The things I see

 

I am sharp but this seems vague

I want to dance and sway

There is nothing I could say

Make it any other way

Running to the shop on the corner

I see a man I say hello

Is it me or him or the world that is dreaming

I am leaning

cup of tea yes please

It has to do with dealing

can you smile and say cheese

or do the right thing with meaning

 

People walk by

has ended

before they pass by

the truth never spoken

 

I am scared in what I am learning

I am trying but I only have one life

Believe in not hiding

Just what will survive

Every one moves slowly

I guess I only mange one line

guess it is better than nothing

do what you believe in

 

People walk by

has ended

before they pass by

the truth never spoken

 

The steps we could gain

the places we could go

It is really unbelievable

 

The truth never spoken
