Pavlov’s Dogs

Commercial dreams a fantasy,
Our trained response to what we see
Never held, but never free
We go along…

Like Pavlov’s Dogs
We’re Pavlov’s Dogs

Advertiser’s numbers tell
A demographic sex-rung bell
Inside our heads bean counters dwell
Ka-Ching our song…

Like Pavlov’s Dogs
We’re Pavlov’s Dogs

If they claim it,
We believe it’s true
Then re-name it,
We believe it’s new

It’s a twisted point of view
Wrought by Madison Avenue
Like wheels and cogs
We’re Pavlov’s Dogs
Yeah, Pavlov’s Dogs

See the ads tell of our fate,
If we buy we’ll satiate
Played again we’ll salivate…
Just bang a gong…

Like Pavlov’s Dogs
We’re Pavlov’s Dogs

Have a sale we’ll celebrate,
Self esteem we’ll desecrate
Our credit’s in a frenzied state
You ding we’re dong…

Like Pavlov’s Dogs
We’re Pavlov’s Dogs
Yeah, Pavlov’s Dogs
Just Pavlov’s Dogs

Simple Me

It’s an easy thing, to be deceived
Just close your eyes to what’s believed
Accept as truth someone else’s lies
Hold up as proof what you’d once despised
It’s an easy thing to be surprised
When all of your world has been contrived

What you want…what you see
Who you taunt…simple me
Love you fake…love you flee
Time you take…simple me

It’s an awe-full thing to be believed
Just lust the trust of who you’ve deceived
Pervert the truth you once despised
Absorb the love born of all your lies
It’s an easy thing to be surprised
When you believe what you’ve contrived

What you want…what you see
Who you taunt…simple me
Love you fake…love you flee
Time you take…simple me

What’d you find…what’d you see?
What in your mind do you think
That you’ve achieved?

What you want…what you see
Who you taunt…simple me
Love you fake…love you flee
Time you take…simple me

When Simply Loving Is All You Can Do


Simplicity carries its own complex beauty
Loving creates its own living duties
Isn’t it wonderful, simple and true
When simply loving is all you can do?

You can read too much into attractions
Just letting them be has its own satisfaction
Isn’t it pure, and clear, and so new
When simply loving is all you can do?

You can lose out giving in to the taking
Feeling the lout moving in for the making
A moment’s remorse in a lifetime’s forsaking
The best future of you
When simply loving is all you should do
Will you be true
When simply loving is all you can do

Complexity comes to your life in its time
No use in your -rushing the arbor to vine
You sure that you want to overpay dues
When simply loving is all you can do?

You can end up with just holding the bag
When life comes to living after the brags
You can’t imagine what you’ll go thru
When simply loving is all you can do

You can lose out giving in to the taking
Feeling the lout moving in for the making
A moment’s remorse in a lifetime’s forsaking
The best future of you
When simply loving is all you should do
Who will be true
When simply loving is all you can do

This chance of a life doesn’t come with undo
When simply loving is all you can do

Together

We find our love along the way
We find tomorrow every day
We stay, on the road we pave
Together
Together

We find our hopes as signs that guide
We find our way, each one beside
And we decide, where we abide
Together
Together

Together now,
Together then
Only we know how
Whoever, when
We stand as one
Our loving tethered
Together
Together

We make our love, we make the best
Dream our answers to their test
Blessed, we rise above the rest
Together
Together

Together now,
Together then
Our living vow
As more than friends
Our shouldered world
Light as a feather
Together
Together

Digitalis

Secrets kept like a fox in glove
No one knew of your broken love
We didn’t mean, to be so callous…Digitalis

We didn’t know the way it goes
Digitalis
Truth is Withering, affects seem slithering
Digitalis
Feet to the fire…no wind to wire
Digitalis…Digitalis

Would’ve seemed, far less contrived
Had we known, then we’d have prescribed
A counter, to the broken heart’s malice…Digitalis

We didn’t know, it’s dieing by throes
Digitalis
Keeping us in dark, answers get stark
Digitalis
Wing to the flyer…no music to lyre
Digitalis…Digitalis

Regulate for you, a, brand new rhythm
Returned in kind, of the love you give ‘em
Glue back the glass on your crystaline palace…Digitalis

We didn’t know the way it goes
Did ya tell us?
Kept in the dark, missing our mark
Did ya tell us?
Feet to the fire…unstrung the lyre
Did ya tell us?
Digitalis
Digitalis

No Man At All

What some men do, other men deny
Shaking their heads, just not seeing why
But still there’s hurt, and still some die
And the world goes on with drawn boy’s blind

And he who hears not, the ladies pained cries
Is no…man at all
And he who can’t loving, look in her eyes
Is no…man at all
Man at all…man at all
No man at all

What some men need, other men can’t know
The dead gaping chasm where they didn’t grow
Stealing her solace…still calling her “Ho”
And the world goes on, scalps tickets to the show

And he who can’t see, degradation that flows
Is no…man at all
And he who smells not, the rotting dead rose
Is no…man at all
Man at all…man at all
No man at all

He’s got to step on her to feel tall
He is…no…man at all
Fleet of foot trips her, watching her fall
He is…no…man at all
He’s got to beat on her, polish his balls
He is…no…man at all

What some men swig, other men can’t swill
Step up to stop it…getting their fill
They see no glory, no gain, and no skill
Yet the world goes on, ignoring him still

And he who exists not, feeling the chill
Is no…man at all
And he who can’t fathom, the loving man’s will
Is no…man at all
Man at all…man at all
No man at all

Outlaws For In-Laws

My girlfriend’s folks were quite a hit
With everyone in the neighborhood
They gave away more fancy things
Than anyone in their right mind should

Well after we got married now
Is when I found out why
I made a discovery without recovery
Well, I almost wanted to cry

I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, What a damn fine sight to see
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, It’s one hell of a family
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, Now what am I gonna do
Outlaws for in-laws, It’s one helluva hullabaloo

See the sergeant he tried hide it for me
And the guys all let it go by
None of ‘em wanted to become the one
And none of ‘em wanted to lie

But when the feds tightened up their net
These bigger fishes were swimming in
Lo and behold, the stories they told
About moonshine, gambling, and sin

I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, What a damn fine sight to see
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, It’s one hell of a family
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, Now what am I gonna do
Outlaws for in-laws, It’s one helluva hullabaloo

Well, the damn done broke it’s wall
With all the secrets spillin’ out
And this aint what the textbooks said
A cop’s life should be all about

Well, they didn’t know, until at the trial
How they’d been neatly set up
When I walked in and testified
They knew, inside, they were out of luck

I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, What a damn fine sight to see
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, It’s one hell of a family
I’ve got outlaws for in-laws, Now what am I gonna do
Outlaws for in-laws, It’s one helluva hullabaloo

Karma’s Army Marches

Make the cuts, you gonna bleed
Death is riding shadow steed
Hear the toll, bell you rung
Die by words, sworded tongue

Waged a war of words
Shot a mouth, what you heard
Dry the desert, passing parches
Karma’s army marches
Karma’s army marches

Do your bad, it’s multiplied
Life you had, withered dries
Hear the legions turning back
No defense, your own attack

Waged a war of deeds
Dead men, can’t intercede
Buried triumph’s crumbling arches
Karma’s army marches
Karma’s army marches

What you say, how you’re said
Your truth becomes the lie you spread
How you’re done from what you do
Cosmic law just sentenced you

Waged a war of words
Shot a mouth, what you heard
Dry the desert, passing parches
Karma’s army marches
Karma’s army marches

Buried triumph’s crumbling arches
Karma’s army marches
Karma’s army marches

Karma’s army marches

Surface Tension

You wanna pull away
Because you’re overfull
Ya don’t know what to say
It always sounds like bull

It’s almost like a battle
Should ya go, or should ya stay
Treat your loving like it’s chattel
Look inside and find your way

And did I mention…
That it’s only surface tension?

Surface tension…Thin veneer of what goes wrong
Surface tension…Deep inside we’re getting strong
Surface tension…Love cohesive hanging on
Surface tension
Surface tension

They see the arguments
Think we’re always on the ropes
But then when we’re content
It’s like they’re losing hope

It’s on the outside
This vibe we’re livin' on
But really, deep inside
Our love is ever long

It’s my contention…
That it’s only surface tension

Surface tension…Thin veneer of what goes wrong
Surface tension…Deep inside we’re getting strong
Surface tension…Love cohesive hanging on
Surface tension
Surface tension

Yeah did I mention…
That it’s only surface tension?

Surface tension…. Surface tension
Surface tension…. Surface tension
Surface tension

Danno - amazing, and all of you, what amazing talent. I hope one day to be able to write as all of you do .. meanwhile, here is a sample of one of mine.

Down in the darkness, on to the sea
There flies my soul out to be free
The sun glistens on the crest of the waves
And carries forth all cares to the grave.

Chorus:
I sit by the shore and feel the thunder
Of the pulling and pushing so far under
Matching the feeling within my heart
Pushing and pulling what is left apart.

The seagulls fly as the sun comes up,
Still I sit empty with naught to fill my cup,
Part of me here and part ne’er to return,
Flying forever across the byrne.

Chorus

Silently comes the day with no one to see,
Just the birds, the fish, the waves and me,
No sounds but ours – no one to care,
But who is to say that not all is fair.

Chorus



Take care,
Zoie

Zoie,

Thank you for the compliment, and also for posting your lyric. I like it. There is a certain sullenness about it that is familiar.

Keep up the good work.

Caught A Bullet

He knew the game, changed his play
But you know that players have their way
And the pack attack hyenas bray
Feeding on their own

And he caught a bullet in the name of peace
So business goes, so wars won’t cease
He caught a bullet in the name of peace
And died by the sword…He’d sheath…

It’s all about the choice you make
And their price, so much at stake
You’re either took, or you partake
Just whose blood you wear

And he caught a bullet in the name of peace
So business goes, so wars won’t cease
He caught a bullet in the name of peace
And died by the sword…He’d sheath…

It grinds against their status quo
Divulging things no one should know
There’s no return from where you’d go
System bites when bucked

And he caught a bullet in the name of peace
So business goes, so wars won’t cease
He caught a bullet in the name of peace
And died by the sword…He’d sheath…

And so much was it tragic
Their arrogant bullet’s magic
Was bought in fear of what they’d sold
The specter of war’s Judas’d gold

And he caught a bullet in the name of peace
So business goes, so wars won’t cease
He caught a bullet in the name of peace
And died by the sword…He’d sheath…
And he caught a bullet in the name of peace
So orders go, so secrets keep
He caught a bullet in the name of peace
Our hope, our shock…our grief

Only Time Will Tell

Life has its deep mysteries
Casts its arcane spell
When you’re making inquiries
Only time will tell

Some have called him father
Tossed coins in his well
When you’re wishing for the truth
Only time will tell

Only time will tell
Only time will tell
Ask him ageless quizitries
Only time will tell

Now I aint got the answers
I’m wonderin’ just as well
But of all the cats that you could ask
Only time will tell

And he aint speakin’ riddles
Tick talks and gongin’ bells
But he’s the one knows all the tricks
Only time will tell

Only time will tell
Only time will tell
Kiss him for an instant
Only time will tell

And if ya thought ya knew him
Only time will tell
He holds all our secrets
Only time will tell
Only time will tell

And the CIA knows very well…
Only time will tell

Monochrome

You call it monochrome
I say it’s shady
I believe black and white
Is about grays and being hazy

Color just hides the truth
Entrances with its hues
I believe in simple life
Read between the lines in blues

And I don’t care what you think you see
You haven’t been there, nor here with me
And I don’t care what you say you heard
They aint been nowhere where they got the word

You call it contrasts
I say it’s stark
I believe that nightmares
Are just shadows of our dark

Vividness overwhelms
Screams no subtlety
I believe we perceive what we want
More than what will be

And I don’t care what you think you see
You haven’t been there, nor here with me
And I don’t care what you say you heard
They aint been nowhere where they got the word

In the end we’re all to blame
Our differences are still the same
There is no new, there is no change
Status quo still knows its name

And I don’t care what you think you see
You haven’t been there, nor here with me
And I don’t care what you say you heard
They aint been nowhere where they got the word

The same old word
So who are they…rules your world
What’d you say? You really sure?

Outsiders

You dodge the drudge, so handily
Gotta keep it, in the family
In is in…understandably
Out is for…outsiders
Outsiders

Do the math, and multiply
Little slashes, are for other guys
Fractions, have their own disguise
Division’s for, dividers
Outsiders

Never know, can’t get in
Try and try and try again
Just ignored, the help, the dim
Dismissed, moved on from…in a whim

Without the fire, never an ember
Tool is desire, still a pretender
Fool as the fuel, never a member
But a mockery of the derider
Outsiders

Outsiders

At The End Of Days

Faeries dancing on a needle
Worlds, on the head of a pin
What is the truth, that we will get to?
When is the time that we have been?

I have no doubt you’re believing
I believe that my doubt is no sin
I just don’t trust those human beings
Who all of your faith, is placing in

And the crystal ball is cracked and crazed…At the end of days
Messianic messengers betray…At, the end of days.

Will we heal our hearts?
Will we change our ways?
At, the end of days…At, the end of days

Where’s the shocking truth?
What’s, the price we’d pay?
At, the end of days…At, the end of days

Galaxies swirling in chaos
Worlds, inhaled in our smoke
When is our time to be finer?
What is the truth we have spoke?

It’s not wrong, you’re believing
Disbelievers, can also now win
Your story is not an exclusive
But your headlines are wearing too thin

And the teacup’s leaving’s lost its glaze…At the end of days
Mesmerizing maligner’s decay…At, the end of days.

Will we heal our hearts?
Will we change our ways?
At, the end of days…At, the end of days

Where’s the shocking truth?
What’s, the price we’d pay?
At, the end of days…At, the end of days

And will the future be all the craze…at, the end of days?
The past at last shifts out of phase…at, the end of days.

Somnambulistic Life

Divinational dreams
Of the walking wounded
War of life it sadly seems
Aint worth waging on the spoon fed

I can’t even read today
So tomorrow’s off my map
In a trance like state I plod away
Think I’ll Iccabod a nap

See what the future…has in store
Cheaply buy me, more time
Shuffle along, startle and snore
Excuse its abuse in my mind

Somnambulistic life
Sleeping the skipping away
Somnambulistic life
Dippin’ a trip o the kip
Somnambulistic life
Narcoleptic heros
Somnambulistic life

Somnambulistic life
Just layin’ it down

Somnambulistic life


Alarms are for the timid

The Secret That You’d Keep

I once held your dreams,
Starred in your fantasies
Served as, deserving bait,
For your friends gossippings
But that was then, and yet, again
I’d do it all, I’d take the leap…

So what am I here now,
Your once dirty laundry?
I’m here, hung out to dry,
It seems, oh so tawdry
And now, objectively, I think I’d rather be
The secret that you’d keep…

Sometimes shadows keep you cool,
When background living is the rule
It’s plain to see how you can hide,
As long as you can be denied
I’d do it again, I’d take the leap…
Be the secret that you’d keep

I once held your fears,
Checked like airline baggage
Entrusted with the fragile tears,
You never seemed to manage
But that was when, out of focus I could blend
Like a truth that runs too deep…

So what am I here now,
Your poison past tense lover?
Exposed, and then estranged,
From under your wing’s cover
And now, objectively, I think I’d rather be
The secret that you’d keep…

Sometimes shadows keep you cool,
When background living is the rule
It’s plain to see how you can hide,
As long as you can be denied
Like a truth that runs too deep…
Like the secret that you’d keep

Well paparazzi all be damned
With their destroying flashing cams
And a moment out of time
Is forever out of line

Sometimes shadows keep you cool,
When background living is the rule
It’s plain to see how you can hide,
As long as you can be denied
Under a rug I’d live, you sweep…
The secret that you’d keep

Wrap Me Up

Well, what you’re givin’ now
It aint too tough
Lovin like a ribbon
Wrap me up

Yeah, I got your gift
And I’ll, give it up
Lovin’ like a ribbon
Wrap me up

You know what I’m thinkin’
You know what they say
You can have, all your dreams
And then you can have your way

Well I don’t need forgivin’
Or apologies as such
Lovin like a ribbon
Wrap me up

I say that life, is for the livin’
And drinkin’ from my cup
Lovin’ like a ribbon
Wrap me up

Lovin’ like a ribbon
Wrap me up

Debts Of The Soul


Wagering pain, the deal
Insider's love, you steal
When downturns, get concealed
A loan is your life...you've enrolled
Debts of the soul
All that is good...shining like gold
Debts of the soul

Concrete foundations, that shake
Hunger pangs, distendedly ache
Pen's pious words, all failing as fake
Pealing pyre...the bellman's toll
Debts of the soul
Pyrite's gleam to eye...getting old
Debts of the soul

Compounding interest, grows of decay
Without rebirth, how can you repay
When it's all that you owe...
All that you know...
Debts of the soul

Dodging the truth, dancing the eyes,
Fleshing out loss, leading with lies,
Sanded, the buried, head denies
Fractions greater than...all the whole
Debts of the soul
Default becomes...the payees role
Debts of the soul

Heroes Live Next Door

Somewhere in a country, our neighbors go to free
Beside his friends to the end, is where he wants to be
Middle of the street, one bad assed fire fight
He dove to take his buddies bullet, a hero goes home tonight

Well everybody knows…what heroes lives are for
But did ya know that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
When everybody gives, heroes up the score
But did ya know…that heroes live
Heroes live…next door

In the middle of the day, a lonely highway stretch
A simple traffic stop, such a complicated catch
Fleeing a felon takes a shot, and ends another life
In a flash, their family smashed, widow made of wife

Well everybody knows… what heroes lives are for
But did ya know…that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
When everybody gives…heroes give the store
But did ya know…that heroes live
Heroes live…next door

The night was blazing hot, the beast was blazing too
They saw it grow to four alarms, but they knew what to do
A four man team, a fog and stream, a beam burned under floor
A thundering crash, hot cindered ash, only three came out the door

Well everybody knows… what heroes lives are for
But did ya know…that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
When everybody gives…our heroes go before
But did ya know…that heroes live
Heroes live…next door

How oft the unsung neighbor
Shows his love, turning savior
Gives to life his biggest favor
And asked again wouldn’t waiver

Well everybody knows… about their heroes lore
But did ya know that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
When everybody gives…heroes give much more
But did ya know that heroes live
Heroes live…next door

The somber sirens wail, on the cold, bleak Saturday,
Decked out in honor’s blues, they’ve come to proudly pray
Bowed heads of beneficients, and his brothers who would trade
A place with him, and honor him, the choice that he has made

Well everybody knows… what heroes lives are for
But did ya know that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
When everybody gives…heroes have gone before
But did ya know that heroes live
Heroes live…next door

And everybody knows… about our heroes lore
So don’t forget that heroes live,
Heroes live…next door
No, don’t forget what our heroes are for
And that our heroes live next door

Evil Wears A Friendly Face


Slap you on the back
Turn around they talkin’ smack
All lovin’ up your front
Cut you down you give ‘em slack

They don’t know their own disgrace
Evil wears a friendly face
They’re just lying all over the place
Evil wears a friendly face
Evil wears a friendly face

Kiss you up to get you loose
Pursin’ lips to taste your juice
Big business needs their cut
And the politicians in cahoots

They don’t know their own disgrace
Evil wears a friendly face
They’re just lying all over the place
Evil wears a friendly face
Evil wears a friendly face

Friends are who you make
Profit’s are what you take
Gotta give yourself a break
Leave ‘em all in your wake

So open up new markets
And sidle up, to your target
And when it’s time to pay
You can say you’ll charge it

They don’t know their own mistakes
Evil wears a friendly face
They’re just waiting all over the place
Evil wears a friendly face
Evil wears a friendly face

Tear Sweetened Wine

Is love only meant, for the worthy?
Or, are there pearls, custom made for swine?
Are there dreams, born for destroying;
Sacrificial raisins on the line?

Are there pains yet, parenting pleasure
Stashing seeds of better times?
Or is it life, tramping out a vintage
Aging, dry, tear sweetened wine

Tear sweetened wine
Tear sweetened wine
Pandora’s fruit of the rotted vine
Will you drink or cry the brine?
Serving life’s tear sweetened wine

Are worms only for birds early?
Are there prizes for late reclines?
Do you only decant for the pure of heart
Dare drunkards dream of these designs?

Are hopes the raisins in the sun
Bowed down to their god’s shrine?
Or is wrath fermenting vinegar
Saving grapes, for, tear sweetened wine

Tear sweetened wine
Tear sweetened wine
Pandora’s fruit of the rotted vine
Will you drink or cry the brine?
Serving life’s tear sweetened wine

A bit of the vessel to the tongue
Hint of the rusting bell you’ve rung
Of earth, of pain, of turpentine
A draught, a brut, of tear sweetened wine

Tear sweetened wine
Tear sweetened wine
Pandora’s fruit of the rotted vine
Will you drink or cry the brine?
Serving life’s tear sweetened wine

Tear sweetened wine
Tear sweetened wine
Serving life’s tear sweetened wine

Mister President

You shoulda seen ‘em
They stood for freedom
Our sons and daughters
Husbands and fathers
But were your daughters sent?
Oh Mister President?
Mister President

The bigger business
Bearin’ us bad witness
The high and mighty
Who are doin’ their dicey
How were your favors spent?
Oh Mister President?
Mister President

Oh, Mister President…
Do you hear, the voter’s laments?
Any more…witty, little comments?
Oh, Mister President
Mister President

Moral impurity
Social security
Your friends are all covered for free
But what will, you do for me?
Well here’s a taste of my dissent
Oh Mister President
Mister President

What was your real intent?
I think it’s evident
Oh, Mister President

Ethical obscurity
Deniable perjurity
What new spin…did you invent?
Oh Mister President

Oh, Mister President…

Mister President
