Bastard Bertolt (unfinished)

Bertolt Bachastrias
Living in sin
Calling up Oedipus.
A three month sabbatical,
Of drink and debauchery,
The judgement was obvious.
In rapture with heaven and hell tonight,
Streaming past, in the spotlights.
I cry out, but I fall endlessly,
Among the bodies of our beloved, friends and family.

Oh Bastard Bertolt
Where will it end?
Why do we all find it necessary,
To pretend.
My eyes are borrowed,
My will is sour.
Finding it all quite confusing,
We conspire.

Oh now you've done it again,
Caught up like poor Claudius.
Spontaneous pain my friend,
Turn a crowd out, like Julius.
A passerby he says,
"His bones are on the mend".
Enamored with seashells & sand, so bright
Swooning, rushing, I feel light.
A snake with three heads begins.
Classical backslide again.



Needs another verse to finish it off.

Golden Cities

Cities of Gold,
Everyone makes out
I'm a superficial soul again.

I will find the golden one tonight,
5 to 1 the odds they are alright
I will find the Golden one tonight
5 to 1 the odds are on my side

Thieves to be told,
Everyone gets out.
Real gold,
To be enjoyed alone.

Worms push through bodies,
Under stones we pray upon.
Living only in memories;
The vision of john,
All perfect yet still.

Kids to be sold;
Slavery in the backdoor.
Cast in the mold,
Of fathers in bold.

Low

A low hum in your ears,
Cuts into your skull to find
all the lies you hold inside.
Cover up, Cover up my friend,
Until you learn to turn it around again.

Turn it all back to yourself,
Serenade us while we burn
Play the pipes oh play them slow
I want to hear what I need to know.

A sallow smile in the snow
Whisper soft, play it close.
You all know who I love the most,
Keep it down, Keep it down my dear.
I wish you would say what I need to hear.

Antony & Cleopatra sounds like a Flaming Lips song, I liked it. Plus your voice reminds me of Coyne.

Autumn Leaves



Celibate come autumn leaves,
Young boy his head hung low in shame.
Drip Chloroform tears on his pillow,
A pretty girl to take his hand.
A note of love placed among the eaves,
Of the house on the river tide.

I'm not sure I mind.
That the feather falls & the weather blinds,
Our eyes to you in the light.
come back again, come back again tonight.

Morose & staunch quarterly
duties he must declare.
His rank & section number, written on the wall.
Brass reflections of a tall glass,
A walk alone & he weeps
Over letters of dear old friends.

Drunk on autonomy
The fisherman's wife weeps softly,
into her handkerchief.
Possessing a lover,
with a passing love, poor Bethany.
His smile as we as the north.

Caught up like poor claudius.
Spontaneous pain my friend,
Turn a crowd out like Julius.
Enamoured with seashells and sand, so bright
Swooning, rushing, a feeling: Light headed.
A snake with three heads, half-mast.
A classical backslide into the past.

Reign of all my friends begins
When you build a wall from north to south
Drive a nail around the bend
Wafer placed into my mouth
Feeling it all in my heart
Falling, a vision of perfect art.
Electric shapes in shattered earth,
we clutch our breasts & die, in wretched mirth.

Default Easier to breathe.

This girl has ego,
but I think I might be able to let it go.
Staring at the ground,
He said,
"Give me a second, I just need to vent".

It gets easier to breathe,
When I'm trying to sleep.
It gets easier I swear.
Easier to breathe.

This rain is amazing,
When do you think we'll set this ablaze?
Witnessing the downpour
She said,
I just want, want to be loved".

Default Work it off

She turns her head
And says to the sky,
"I don't want to die,
It does not feel like it's my time."

The girls in line
Waiting for something,
I don't know what or why;
Just to pass the time.

We work it off with a smile
And we'll be there tonight.
It's alright we get along,
We get that feeling that we belong.
We get that feeling, that we belong.

We are sick,
We go away to celebrate
Our time.
We learn, we learn to rhyme.

The girl on the river,
she doesn't like the feel upon her skin.
A fix, you can never break it down,
Until you learn to give in.

Default Different parts of G minor

He smiled at me and said,
"You will never be anything more than your father was,
Before".

I turn a line and replied,
"I've said it all before, I will never let you,
down".

Children of the night,
I might follow you into the gloom.
Sail away on your broken wings, as I cut the cord.
All my friends in sight,
It's quite hollow through.
Too soon we'll fade away into our broken homes,
As we cut the cord.

One more aside
before we let it slide,
"nothing new could come,
from you".

I turn a line and replied,
"I've said it all before,
I will never let you,
down".
