lyrics

I wrote these lines
in the company of felines
white noise, muted flicks
and mason jars of cheap wine
rewind eight millimeters
worth of free time
read it off the paper
to remind me things will be fine
are these rhymes
just my chosen method to murder minutes
til the beard grows grey
and his wolf days are finished?
i've witnessed the litmus change colors
like autumn leaves abandoning trees in big numbers
like ladies changing faces
relationships gone under
like cicada wings after
17 year slumber
and i wonder
how much longer til i sail off
how much longer til i'm frail
and racked with a tell tale cough
that calls Thanatos
to reap his harvest
recycle my cold soul
bring it back to where it started
when I'm dearly departed
how long til I'm forgotten
will they speak ill of this cadaver
'fore his bones have started rotting?
pardon - but it keeps 40 winks to a fraction
when it all goes down
i'ma sink with the captain
don't think - it's time for some action
i ain't living like the dead
life isn't a closed casket


I wrote these lines while slouching in a cubicle
day dreaming of the cities that i've seen
all beautiful
walked this crooked earth from
cobblestone to catacombs
but wolf's just passing through
I've never really had a home
I'd rather roam
adding prose to this tattered tome
til both our spines are misaligned
my ghost will sing "i had to go"
and it's - truly nothing to be sad about
i lived doing what i loved
of that I've never really had a doubt
so what you worried for?
what you in a hurry for?
i'm taking time to fall in love
with every moment til I'm buried or
they tossing wolf's ashes off
the brooklyn bridge
remember me for who i was
and not for what i said and did
you better live
like all plans tentative
like you a representative
of how to dead the negative
just put that hope into practice
just be mindful of this moment
just be there when it happens
until I expire and that's all she wrote
I’m finding life in every breath
until I rock that pine overcoat

and I won't waste my time here
I'm doing just fine here
