People are opinions
Lips move and minds
crumble under the weight

I am separating from influence
to be alone again

I need new secrets, new lies
that only I know are true
Whispering to the dead
"Where are You?"

Here I wear no mask
hold on to nothing
save the nothingness

God is not dead
because he never
did exist
I will go where the
Idea lives

A house where no garden grows
A prison palace for a plastic rose

All skull and roses now
your ashes in urn
and we all fall down

A Son and daughter
A City that never
did sleep well
tears to fill the well
the well flows over

Your heart was as big
as your habit
and the both of you
were the best of me

all of those years
we spent chasing
heaven through
the streets of camden
just to find out that
the dead still are not free

This is for you,
like me,
a violent peace

the aftermath of a war
the triumph of

"Give Your Heart to the Hawks", be for once an ant or iceberg but not an asshole
then comes the comforting cloud of nothingness. See You In Hell !!?!

I am a has been who never was
A dream that died with the opening
of an eye trapped in the glare of the sun

I thought I caught God in a rain drop
on a spoon
The holy spirit clung to the filthy walls
and stunk up the air of the blue generic

Alien ate it all up and out the vomit
spewed from my sad mouth
Pin eyed
playing dead and broken records repeat
the lament
an anti-mantra
nhilistic song of something
that is really nothing but a...
