Athens

I'm hearing Jimmy from the apartment next door
And I'm wondering what I came back here for
I pick up my guitar, and the memories sing through
Of the night we got drunk and I played "Hey Joe" with you.

The burned-out plantation down a long country road
The marks that you left and the secrets I told
From your porch I looked up at the dark Southern sky
You told me you loved me. I still don't know why.

I want to be where the Bull Dogs are winning
The 40 Watt's on, and the Globe is still spinning
Where there's a Jesus in neon for each country mile
Where I'd start every morning returning your smile.

That's always the way things happen for me
Always wanting to be somewhere I just can't be
I'll just keep wishing on these cold Northern stars
That I'll wake up in Athens, cause that's where you are.



Untitled Life

Chorus:

My life is so untitled
I can see it getting eatin away
My life is so untitled
I can’t see it staying this way
this way
this way
this way
this____way
( solo )

Verse: 1

How much more can I take?
This may be my last mistake
How much more can my life take?
i know it might be my last night

Verse 2:

I cant live this way no more
It’s to hard to make it move
This life is not what I want
This life is not what I had
This life is not what I did
But this is how it turns out


Chorus:

My life is so untitled
I can see it getting eatin away
My life is so untitled
I can’t see it staying this way
this way
this way
this way
this____way
this way
this way
this way
this____way

Verse 3:

How much longer can I last
I cant live this way no more
This is my last night here
I cant stay right here no more
Its ok ill be right up there
Watching down on all of you
That are still down there


Chorus:

My life is so untitled
I can see it getting eatin away
My life is so untitled
I can’t see it staying this way
this way
this way
this way
this____way

My life now has a title
My life is not a joke
My life has ended
My new life has begun



Untitled

(Intro)
Winters chill, As I sit, Broke, Forgotten.
Wasting away as I daydream about the playtime I never gotten

(Chorus)
Toy Maker runs and frolicks in the sun.
I lay the unremembered one.
Laugh and giggle, express your joys.
I'll just sit on the Island For Broken Boys.

(Verse 1)
See, Toy Makers absess with the hot new gift,
we get treatted like a dime store thrift.
gotta get it, that next new feature,
but without it epileptic seizure.
Everyday they say they want to quit, As you turn you head they sneak that one last gift.

See, They like games, Board or The Ice Capades.
But it is just a game, Act out you'r cherades.
Long known but never spoken.
Seems the factory is broken, but you would never know, So insert another token.


(Chorus)
Toy Maker runs and frolicks in the sun.
I lay the unremembered one.
Laugh and giggle, express your joys.
I'll just sit on the Island For Broken Boys.

(Verse 2)
Crank my key, Pull my string.
Watch me hop, Hear me sing.
Gears unwind, Strings wind back.
I chase after you, you won't look back.

(Chorus)
Toy Maker runs and frolicks in the sun.
I lay the unremembered one.
Laugh and giggle, express your joys.
I'll just sit on the Island For Broken Boys.

(Verse 3)
Now my gears are rusted, String has snapped.
No more are we wanted, The Peanut gag is capped.
When will the game stop?
As I sit on the Island For Broken Boys, Trapped.

Hell, We were fun while we lasted.
Throw us down no time wasted.
Dust gathered in layers,
We are the game, They were the players.

Like Old Saint Nick, We get made.
It is an evil trick, As we never get played.(Or do we?)

New package smell gets worn off,
No more pitty, just stop.

You left us to those who tried,
Thinking of what we did wrong I sat and cried.
Just to get one more turn, Push or poke.
I know it won't help to still retain that false hope.


(Chorus)
Toy Maker runs and frolicks in the sun.
I lay the unremembered one.
Laugh and giggle, express your joys.
I'll just sit on the Island For Broken Boys.


(Outro)
Remeber who sat waiting for you all day,
Because we won't be here when you dissmay.



The District of Columbia

On this late night bus, snug
despite the first-month chill outside,
we wander down the winding scar
of interstate to the Capitol

where, in the tired half-light
we will rise as one and speak
in the furious tone of our forefathers.
As my eyes stumble over the crowd, I find

that the windows have been crystallized
with our collective breath and I can
almost catch the minute creaks of people
shifting in their seats.

The intercom bursts to life
and a woman's voice, harsh and metallic,
echoes down the aisle. In spite of myself,
she becomes the elderly but powerful

pastor at my grandmother's old church.
We used to go every Sunday morning,
crammed inside the tiny congregational hall,
baptized in the soft angles of stained glass.

Years later, I'm here again: gathered at dawn
with the people of my faith, praying that
this time, I will look out over the
congregation, hand outstretched,

and grasp a moment of revelation.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.

Purple is alright but doesn't seem to know much what it's talking about.

Athens was really good for that style of writing, which I actually don't enjoy much. So there.
