Dogs And Cats

Absolute devotion
Knowing where it's at
Steely independence
Dogs and cats

Balls and sticks to chase
Strings and mice to bat
Each to his or her own fun
Dogs and cats

Teeth and growls and barking
Hissing scratching howling spats
It's all about the territory
Dogs and cats

But kittens have their puppy loves
And warm full bellies fit like gloves
No prejudice, no demagogues
For little learning cats and dogs

But older hounds will have their day
For keeping under hats
A catch is just a chase away
For dogs and cats

And laziness is not a crime
Scratchin’ rugs and chewin’ spats
So sleep in peace is also fine
For dogs and cats

Dogs and cats

Fighting like brats
Each other we blame and claim
We are torrential rain
Dogs and cats

Dogs and cats
Dogs and cats

Dogs and cats

Hi Dan,

I was going to ask you the very same thing. Would we be able to put one (or more) of your lyrics to music? You would get credited as the writer.

Currently, because of working and the projects we have on the go we only have one actual gig planned this year, but we occassionally play out at open stages as well.

Take care,
Zoie

Zoie, I can create music for the songs with ChucK. Can you do the vocals? Or maybe all three of us should separately do vocals on different songs. This could be a nice collaboration, just let us know...

Les

Cool man. My favorite was Charlie Brown (I think you did that one, right? I forget). I'll put something together to get us started. Maybe when we do an album we can publish it on ocp's netlabel.

Les,

That sounds awesome. I think all three of us doing vocals separately on different songs would be great. I look forward to hearing hearing your music Smile .

Take care,
Zoie

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

Our Love Is The Afterglow


Orange creamcicle sunrise
Hot misty morning and you
The dawning prescient power
Overshadows all we do

And every brighter hour
Every, there…we go
It burns our, inner bonding
Our love…is the afterglow

The more you shine
The more you’ll know
Our love…is the afterglow
Our love…is the afterglow

Fireside, horizontally, evening
Caress you to sleep as my dreams
And even in hidden, darker places
Revealingly, it gleams

Through every trial we flow
Our love…is the afterglow
The more it takes, more so you’ll know
Our love…is the afterglow

They say I’ve taken a “shine” to you
Well, that’s just fine, if they only knew
Our internal, eternal, living light show
Our love…is the afterglow

Our love…is the afterglow

We carry the torch wherever we go
Our love…is the afterglow
You light my fire, that’s what I know
Our love…is the afterglow

Intenders to embers, the will and the woe
Our love…is the afterglow
Our feelings disguised, like fireflies
Our love…is the afterglow

Our love…is the afterglow

Wind O The Will

Wind o the will blows like a storm
On its power tomorrow is borne


In each heavy moment of life
Balanced on fulcrum of choice
Every profound mystical thought
Given to living, poetic voice
And at each wonder’s towering triumph
We parade, in which we rejoice
Blows the kiss of our love…
On the Wind O the Will
No accident, decidedly skilled
Wind O the Will
Humbling, strident, vibrant, and shrill
Wind O the Will

Dusting devils and angels alike
Twisting events along for the ride
Drying the reign of sotted indifference
Winged food of life we imbibe
A rush refreshing to battlements heat
Sweet balance to bitter ambivalent’s bribe
Brushing the breath of our love
Wind O the Will
Fans the fire of attainment’s still
Wind O the Will
Thundering, steadfast, repaster’s grill
Wind O the Will

Whispers through the doubter’s boughs
Sings a song of where’s and how’s
Echoes hints of then’s and now’s
Grists “NO” in “YES’s” mill
Wind O the Will

Wind O the Will
Hold me down, it’s blowin’ still
Wind O the Will
Wind O the Will
Can’t contain it, can’t keep it still
Wind O the Will
Wind O the Will.

Here is a dity inspired by "Silence of the Lambs"

Collecting Butterflies

She flitters and flutters, flower to flower
Sucking the nectar, drawing her power
Her beauty today, lasts only an hour
She’s the best he can get
So he swings, his net
Drunk on his formaldehyde
She dies
Collecting butterflies
Posing pins dream her demise
Collecting butterflies

See all the awe, displaying her brings
Iridescent unfolded emboldened wings
Shadowy boxed as a, treasured thing
There’s not a bit of regret
Another piece in his set
A moment’s, satiated, cocooning eyes
He sighs
Collecting butterflies
Named scientific his disguise
Collecting butterflies

Finer arts, lost in lessons
When obsession
Needs possession
Needer’s…taker’s…eyes
Telling lies

The innocent social game she plays
Blind of the hunter’s mindful ways
He wouldn’t borrow tomorrow, today
He plays every bud you’ve met
Foreclosing unpayable debt
Another star to jar’s muffled cries
Time doesn’t fly
Collecting butterflies
Sociopathically sly
Collecting butterflies

Pretties, my pretties, oh my
Collecting butterflies
Collecting butterflies

Back To Old School


Innovations are unique
Move you on…down the street
Breakin’ ground is sorta sweet
But when…you wanna be cool
Go back to old school
Back to old school

Pushin’ limits is a gas
Pushin’ lazy…to move its ass
You push and push until you crash
Before you bend…gotta know the rules
Go back to old school
Back to old school

Envelope’s made for twisting
Future is insisting
Punching through the fisting
Wearing jeans in the pool
Going back to old school
Back to old school

Jump off from new heights
Ultra glow from hot lights
Brighter shadows of the night
Talkin’ to the toad on the stool
Go back to old school
Back to old school

More quality time you spend
Before you bend…you gotta know the rules
You gotta go back
Back to old school

Laughin’ at the fools
Blingin’ all the jewels
New is just a tool
Becomin’ old school

Go back to old school
Back to old school

Back to old school

Machine Goes On

Grind the gristle with the meat
Barefoot thistles dancing feet
Fight the battles lose the war
Machine goes on machining more
Play the game to the same old score
Machine goes on machining more

Swim upstream to die float down
Fuckin' fight to fuckin' drown
Bear jumps in to steal the store
Machine goes on machining more
Pay the piper to play the whore
Machine goes on machining more

Give me liberty, give me death
Free your soul with your dieing breath
Ship goes down so you swim to shore
Machine goes on machining more
Grease the wheels with blood o' the poor
Machine goes on machining more

Aint no evil aint no gore
Machine goes on machining more
Paint it white then close the door
Machine goes on machining more
Machining more
Dreamed destruction legend's lore
Machine goes on machining more
Machining more
Machining more
Machine goes on machining more

Shadows Of Enlightenment

They were so surprised when they heard it
That the vagabonded hermit
Had found how to discern it
How he had been betrayed

Enraged when I began to see
How blind I'd been 'bout you and me
You'd handled me so handily
Educationaly delayed

But through the bands of darkness
A dawning light shone through
In spite of seeing's starkness
I started seeing you
In shadows of enlightenment
The contrasts showing true
In shadows of enlightenment

I was always good when you needed
And the pushes I'd conceded
The warning signs unheeded
Telltales that you'd displayed

And the put-off's automatic
Your inclusions autocratic
I couldn't tune through all the static
And faux promises you'd made

But through the bands of darkness
A dawning light shone through
In spite of seeing's starkness
I started seeing you
The fool is found as they conceal
In shadows of enlightenment
Who's to know what you'll reveal
In shadows of enlightenment

Well Ansel Adams had it right
The world seen best in black and white
All the best at taking's way
Will hide in neutral grey…

But through the bands of darkness
A dawning light shines through
In spite of seeing's starkness
I started seeing you
Eventually you will reveal
In shadows of enlightenment
The truth of all the love you steal
In shadows of enlightenment

Your laws of life will be repealed
In shadows of enlightenment

Your spectered ways will be congealed
In shadows of enlightenment

Stark naked there…how will you feel
In shadows of enlightenment

Abaddon's Garden

You can cultivate your friends
Go and sew your servile seeds
You can justify your bends
By the rulings of your needs
You can dig your mother earth
In wicked crooked rows
Think for what it's worth
Deny for where it goes
But when the fighting starts
And when their hearts are hardened
Hider’s heed...Grow as a weed
In Abaddon's Garden
In Abaddon's Garden

They can sell the world their cause
And you can buy their spin
If it don't bring you any pause
Then there was never sin
And when their hand of cards
And house built, starts to crumble
Don't now run too hard
Lest you trip, and startled stumble
But when denials all fly
and your soul cries for it's pardon
You will know...Weeds will grow
In Abaddon's Garden
In Abaddon's Garden

You can dig the lies
Thrive on confrontation
But you cannot disguise
Your part in conflagrations
So when it gets too thick
Prick turns...A thistles margin
You will conceed...Life as a weed
In Abaddon's Garden
In Abaddon's Garden

Yeah all you buy...Do or decry
You seek, You knock, You try
Best advice...Whatever price
There are no bargains
In Abaddon's Garden
In Abaddon's Garden
In Abaddon's Garden

Fertilizers bleed
In Abaddon's Garden

Carries The Heart Away

Built for lighter cargo
Sailing rougher seas
Bypasses love’s embargo
Setting reason free
Sometimes the need of wanting
Overtakes the day
Sometimes the ship of lonely fools
Carries the heart away
Carries the heart away

Dreamers live in wonder
Havers live in fear
Hopers live in vivid dreams
Wanting’s way is clear
Sometimes the ease of having
Leaves laziness at play
Sometimes the drive to dreamming
Carries the heart away
Carries the heart away

With havers having lots
What wanters haven’t got
Havers become maker
Turning wanters into takers

Losers live in yearning
Of what was once their own
Stealers having learned
Havers have always known
Sometimes the greed of grabbing
Will lead the soul astray
Sometimes the rule of holding
Carries the heart away
Carries the heart away

Sometimes a loss
Regardless of cost
Carries the heart away

If I Had The Power


If I had the power
I’d know just what to do
I’d do all kinds of wonderful things
And blame them all on you

If I had the power
I’d cure the world’s disease
Build for all the homeless
Garden out life’s weeds
If I had the power

If I had the power
I’d steal a sunny day
Then go to all your darker spots
And give it all away
If I had the power
If I had the power

If I had the power
I’d cater to your needs
I’d be your prince, your charming knight
I’d make you feel complete
If I had the power
If I had the power
If I had the power
If I had the power

If I had the power
I’d buy the time you spend
Give it all right back to you
A present from a friend

If I had the power
I’d interrupt the wars
So everyone could catch a glimpse
What’s worth not fighting for
If I had the power

If I had the power
If power could renew
I’d gather up all that it meant
And give it back to you
If I had the power
If I had the power

If I had the power
If I had the power

The Destination’s World Of We

Together is a place we can go
Power of two, farther than alone
And when we get there, our loving will be
The destination’s world of we

Life is a trip with a view
The one I see with me is you
And when we arrive, our place there will be
The destination’s world of we

We build our future day by day
Pave our path with wisdom’s way
Give the world as gift our child
Grow our love, plant our smiles

Tomorrow’s foundation today
Poured in the forms of our play
And when it’s all built, our life will then be
The destination’s world of we

I’ll be your support, you’ll shelter me
In our destination’s world of we

Further Their Fall

Another coat of blame paint
White wash the blood
You’d think by now, they’d learn to swim
Children of the flood
Lowlander’s recreation
Laugh as they tumble down
Hubris’ mansion’s alabaster
Once perched on higher ground

Pleadingly they call, proclaiming they’re all
Liars in weight, truthful in fete
They further their fall
Further their fall
Further their fall

Choreographers of chaos
Cross fingers point away
Underhanded overtures
Smilingly, mate the play
Puppeteers of hidden string
Makers of the law
See how well rhetoric tastes
Crowing down your craw

Towering tall, lower they crawl
Reason is shunned, under their gun
As, they further their fall
Further their fall
Further their fall

Louder they bawl, poisonous pall
Words like a cloth, cocooning the moth
Flames, further their fall
Further their fall
Further their fall

Higher the call
Steeper their stall
The further their fall
Further their fall
Further their fall

It Must Be Controlled


It's new, it's hot
It so hits the spot
It's the slice to the bread
It must be controlled !

The beautiful stranger
Intriguing endangerment
Truth to the youth
It must be controlled !

They don't know how dangerous
The duty here remains with us
We will tell them what fun to have
Regulate doses of mental salve

It's evil, it's death
Don't waste your breath
It will come to no good
It must be controlled !

Its lie, it's ruse
It's too ripe for abuse
It's no good for cocktails
It must be controlled !

They don't see how insidious
No real business is bidding us
We still know what's best for them
It's still just like it's always been

It's weird, it's wrong
Way, way too strong
Just too footloose
It must be controlled !

Too pure, too bold
Apocalyptically cold
It threatens our world
It must be
It must be
It must be

It must be controlled !!

Dan, that "If I had the Power" song is incredible. I want to do it next for the album.
