Long for you (lyrics for a song)

Like a jaguar
Waiting for a kill
Like a junkie
Looking for a thrill
I will always
Almost and always
Long for you

Like an artisan working
At the wheel
Like a prostitute yearning
For that which is real
I will always
Almost and always
Call for you

And when we walk and pass on bye
And fail to look in
One another's eye                > Chorus
I will always
Almost and always
Yearn for you

Like a scorpion
About to sting
Like a errant knight
Without a king
I will always
Almost and always
Call for you

Like a soldier itching
On the trigger
Like a traitor yearns to
Point the finger
I will always
Almost and always
Lust for you

And when we walk and pass on bye
And fail to look in
One another's eye                > Chorus
I will always
Almost and always
Yearn for you

Like a farmer who
Works his till
Like a starving man
You cannot fill
I will always
Almost and always
Long for you

Broken Soul

I fell in love with a broken soul
No matter what I do
Ain't got
No control
And damn taken
Such a heavy toll
I fell in love with a broken soul
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
Got me feeling
Black and blue
I fell in love with a
Broken soul
Ain't got
No control
No control

Have a Heart

I donated my heart to science
And replaced it with
A pocket watch
Gold in kind
The scientists said my heart
Failed to move to the
Federally approved beat
Despite much indoctrination on
Their part
And physical mistreatment
Kind words
Threat and reward
They grew weary and so
They locked it away
Meantime
The pocket watch started to
Tick unorthodox
For how a pocket watch
Is generally inclined
But for a heart it did
Just fine
In the end however
The new organ
Gold in kind
Rejected my body
And my mind
So now I wander
with no heart and
No idea
The time

Super Dorky Political Holiday Poem

Resists those savage beasts and brats
That play along the edge
Of Left and Right who
Skirt the truth
You cannot trust their pledge
They divide and split and lie and cheat
I hope that you can see
They hurt our hopes of embracing
Our precious liberty

I'll tell you friend
With eyes agog
The truth will set you free
Believe in this and only this
The might of
Ob-ject-iv-it-y

Resist the lies from either end
Believe in fact and truth
The fringe is not your friend my friend
The edge is perilous
Stray back into the center part
Find light and peace and trust
Join with me in denouncing lies
Be one with all of us

I'll tell you friend
With eyes agog
The truth will set you free
Believe in this and only this
The might of
Ob-ject-iv-it-y
