Faded Feelings

August 11, 2014

A soft sun sets beneath gentle hills Golden, rolling away from me
Orchards to the east
Dark and green
Blurring together
Fading into the purple haze
Leaving me crushed under the weight of every beautiful moment
As I head home to nothing
No one
Nowhere

Harmonious Discontent

August 9, 2014

Notes ring out
Standing in unison
Chords clamoring
Against the oppressive silence
There will be quiet
No more

Circle of Death

August 3, 2014

Digging deep
Follow tracks
Unearthed remains
Forgotten past
Lessons learned
Lost in the cracks
You forgot the order
We are coming back
Triangles of light
Descend from black
All hail your master
All hail Gorlak

This is from a new musical project I am working on with some friends. I had a journal filled with ideas for it stolen while on tour last year and am finally getting back into it. This time I will post it here so it can’t be taken.

Drinking Games

July 31, 2014

Open eyes
Like staring at the sun
Head and heart
Pound as one
Paying the price for these long summer nights
Searching for love
Finding liquor and drugs
Friends and thugs
Fists and hugs
Waking up outside
As large white clouds cut through the heavens above
Or on an unfamiliar couch
As strangers wade through bottles and cans
Arrayed across the floor
Non repeating patterns
Unbreakable code
Hinting towards vague and fleeting memories of the past
It hurts to laugh, but I can’t help myself
Life is a bad sitcom
Replays of reruns
The next the same as the last
A marathon of monotony
Helping the time to pass

Units of Measure

July 23, 2014

Looking up through the slats
As we lay on our backs
Watching the cracks connect
Each second blurs to the next
Flows through space
Interrupted only by time
It’s our quest to quantify
That causes the divide
Square peg in square hole
Round in round
It comes from the same pile
It ends in the same pile
The only difference is the path
It’s as simple as A to B
With all our walls it’s hard to see
Life’s more than a maze
More than a game
Life is unquantifiable
We are the same

Speed of Light

July 16, 2014

Head in helmet
Face of glass
Tinted black
Watching the world pass
Between the gap of outstretched arms
Reaching for things that cannot be grasped
That life is gone
There is no going back
Forward can’t be the way we came
Time to forget the past
Find another way
Turn towards the stars and push on
There are no days out here
Only space
No oxygen
No sounds
Only space
No lovers
No regrets
Only beams of light shooting past
Warming our backs
As we travel into the black
Finding our way at last

Harvest

July 6, 2014

Sickle moon slung low in the night sky
Just outside my window
Reminding us all
We reap what we sow
I don’t know though
I can’t remember what seeds I got
What seeds I tossed to the wind
Only to sprout
Pollinate
Germinate
And return to me again
Was I so careless with my youth?
Did I not understand the consequence?
Or am I being overrun by other peoples shit?
