LyricSong Title
He lived all alone within a house, within a room, within himself.
And you read your Emily Dickinson and I my Robert Frost, and we note our place with bookmarks that measure what we've lost.
And when I awoke and felt you warm and near, I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears.
The force can't do a decent job 'cause the kids got no respect for the law today and blah, blah, blah.
My life seems unreal, my crime an illusion, a scene badly written in which I must play.
I don't know what is real, I can't touch what I feel, and I hide behind the shield of my illusion.
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why. Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike...
Die she must, the autumn winds blow chilly and cold.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories...
Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl. I held her close but she faded in the night like a poem I meant to write.
LyricSong Title
And the signs said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls.
Hide it in a hiding place where no one ever goes; put it in your pantry with your cupcakes.
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain. It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
But you can take the crosstown bus if it's raining or it's cold.
Generals order their soldiers to kill and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten.
The poet reads his crooked rhyme. Holy, holy is his sacrament.
If you need a friend, I'm sailing right behind.
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone, going home.
I don't know why I spend my time writing songs I can't believe with words that tear and strain to rhyme.
Seasons change with the scenery, weaving time in a tapestry, won't you stop and remember me?
