There Were No Faces

          There was no feeling of being in any special place, and he might have been kneeling in an unlit cave, or seated in a smoky room where there were no faces, just a lot of eyes that looked at him. Or merely drifting on a slab of ice in a quiet region of white emptiness.

Where Did Everyone go ?

                           I gave the party. I was the host.
                           Everyone loved me
                           I was the most

Bloody Mary Morning

                             All the night life and parties
                             Temptation and deceit
                             the order of the day  
                             Well it's a bloody mary morning
                             Cause i'm leavin' baby
                             Somewhere in L.A

Physical Dreamscape

          The physical dreamscape was dark toned and 60s/70s vintage. The thematic dreamscape was all fear. I was walkin' the streets. I was homeless in the city i had rendered with great success as a writer. I was bewildered, disconsolate, completely lost.

Never Stand the Strain

I know i need a small vacation
But it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
Will never stand the strain

Easier to See

      Sometimes it is easier to see clearly into the liar than into the man who tells the truth.

Tell the Man

                 Joe, tell the man i'm gonna break him so fast he won't have time to change his pants. Tell him, the next time i see him, he'll be in the lobby of the hotel crying like a baby and asking for a ten dollar loan.
