lyrics & poetry

Assonance and alliteration. Repetition and rhythm. This is a page devoted to stanzas and their sound. Some of these excerpts are sweet, some are silly, and some are just strange. Enjoy!

All the things yet to come are the things that have passed /
Like the old enough hands, like the breaking of glass /
Like the bonfire that burns, in worth, in a fight felt too

Well, I've been 'fraid of changin' /
'Cause I've built my life around you /
But time makes you bolder /
Even children get older /
And I'm gettin' older, too

Down empty streets sniffing glue me and you /
Blank open eyes watch the moonflower bloom /
It's been a long hard twenty-year summer vacation / 
All these twenty years trying to fill the void / 

Crack baby you don't know what you want 

Your heart melts into my cup /
It tastes like warm honey /
My self seems never enough /
Tell me, honey, it's funny /

But now I open up my eyes big enough to cry /
The universe is too bright/ 
Light beams in the sky speaking to my third eye / 
Speaking through my third eye

Are we human or are we dancer? /
My sign is vital, my hands are cold /
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer / 
Are we human or are we dancer?
