Track Name: Windshield and Road
Windshield and Road


Hold my hand
Hold my hand
Don’t let go

I will care
I will carry you

Perhaps we’ve been erased
We left the things we chased
Let it all go
It’s windshield and road

Hold my hand
Hold my hand
Don’t let go

We will scrape
We will scrape the sky

Walking to the fold
Where nothing’s bought or sold
Let it all go
New place for our soul

Hold my hand
Hold my hand
Don’t let go

Track Name: The Raft
The Raft

Reaching for the sky
Grabbing at the air
Never looking back
Afraid of what is there

I could hear the boy’s neck creaking
All he wanted was a peek
How could he imagine the consequences
Of finally finding what you seek

The raft
The raft
The raft

The raft
The raft
The raft

He stand upon the others’
Frail and naked shoulders
Making friends with all
Medusa’s frightened soldiers

How bright the star

They warned him 27 times
Once for every year of his life
They said be careful what you ask for
You won’t end up with what you like

The raft
The raft
The raft

The raft
The raft
The raft

Track Name: Heal Him Now
Heal Him Now

Under the water
a river of pain
we bandage him but
injury remains

We will try
and try yet again
until the task
becomes to us mundane

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Quietly listen, for his bones are aching,
Perhaps the scratch is bleeding again
sweet friend of mine, it’s one road away
if we go…we can try to ease his pain

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Heal him now heal him now
Look for the wounds
they can’t be found

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Heal him now heal him now
Look for the wounds
they can’t be found

The story is inspired by the skeletal system front, back and profile illustration
I have framed and hanging in my studio.
I thought about human physical pain we have but
how the deepest wounds are never physical.
Track Name: Elephant Girl
Elephant Girl
9.5 x 8ct

The ladder leans
against the wall
and every man
likes being tall

The  mistress of
the lion cage
30 teeth
are hard to gauge
She looks like Loren
with tattoos
all over
her body

You don’t miss the show again
all over
her body

Don’t miss the show again

It’s carnival 
we love to see
who’s our freak
on the marquee

this jamboree
everybody’s favorite
She walks the wire
Over the pavement
Graceful and poised
even though she is drunk
She sits upon
the elephants trunk

Don’t miss the show again
Graceful….
and poised

Don’t miss the show again

You missed the show again

She swings in air
on the trapeze 
She kind of smiles
trying to appease

step right up and
take a peek
she promises
not to speak

She’ll wave her hands and
Shake her ass
She dances
With class

Don’t miss the show again
Ooooh
La la la di da

It’s cold but she’ll wear
her leotard
She’s a bright
Shiny Star

Don’t miss the show again
Don’t miss the show again

You Missed the show ooh
You miss the show again
