Long in tooth and soul Longing for another win Lurch into the fray Weapon out and belly in Warrior struggling To remain consequential Bellow aloud Bold and proud Of where I’ve been But here I am Beating chest and drums Beating tired bones again Age-old battle, mine Weapon out and belly in Tales told of battles won Of things we’ve done Caligula would grin Beating tired bones Tripping through remember when Once invincible Now the armor’s wearing thin Heavy shield down Warrior struggling To remain relevant Warrior struggling To remain consequential Cry aloud Bold and proud Of where I’ve been … Continue reading OP’sTSotD-Tool

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart I’ve got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over My boss just quit the job Says he’s goin out to find blind spots and he’ll do it The 3rd planet is sure that they’re being watched By an eye in the sky that can’t be stopped when you get to the promise land You’re gonna shake that eye’s hand Your heart felt good It was drippin’ pitch and made of wood And your hands and knees Felt cold and wet on the grass beneath Well outside naked, … Continue reading OP’s TSotD-Modest Mouse

There’s a model of your bathroom from the old apartment in my heart where you live. there’s a deal with a Devil on my mind why is negotiation such a grind in this place there’s a Giant at my table talking about … Continue reading I.II.III.
It was the best of times and we all had a bottle full of promise. The summer was on and full; iron in the blood. the sun was big as were the dreams we shared on our sleeves. the picture of beauty was Hope Sandoval singing Fade Into You on MTV and we were all looking for that one person to dance with. We ended up jamming together for a while through a few LollaPaloozas then went separate ways. I can’t sing and I don’t like to rhyme, i’m not much of any…one. If there somet….stuff I could say I … Continue reading ’94
