Eagle running from a legal gun If life is so precious let's protect our young
AR 15...absurd and obscene You can't drink or smoke but they're yours at eighteen
Bulletproof backpacks are selling real well Made in America...product from Hell
Tap...tap our primal fears and watch the hatred flow Tap...tap and where it stops nobody seems to know
Replacement theory came to life in 1492 Columbus tried to hide it but the Taino people knew
Stalin and Goebbels knew all about it Houdini the truth until people doubt it
Whatever doesn't sink still floats The truth puts meat on bones...and bones on ghosts
Someone's trying to sell us what they say we need Someone's trying to tell us that the wound won't bleed
The size of the lie will not make it true/ The clouds don't make the sky less blue
Who's kicking ass through the looking glass? Lewis Carroll's the one to ask
Tear us apart then offer a cure There's high demand for the lie de jour
War isn't peace and peace isn't war At least not since 1984
Washington once refused the crown Now D.C. is a border town
We took a look at the ultrasound Of the teacup where freedom drowned
Simon says silence makes a sound Listen close and you'll hear it now
Gravity has no self control Said the kid in the rabbit hole
Love is a verb and also a noun In the American Underground (Verse)
Found can be lost but lost can be found In the American Underground
On the horns of a dilemma gettin' gored Cause ignorance is gettin' too intense to be ignored
Your pumpkin shell can't hold me...my body is my own The genie's left the bottle cause the bottle's been outgrown
This line in the sand just defines who we've been We'll learn who we are when the tide comes in
Pro life for the whole nine months...then your passion wanes Kids with empty bellies go to bed with hunger pains
All these MAGA people pining for the good ol' days When backseats were for black folks...and closets were for gays
The Middle Passage marked the start of our "peculiar " crime The shackle and the lash still cast a shadow on our time
Won't go back to that whitebread world...Won't believe The Big Lie Might be water under the bridge is where justice goes to die
Tears fuel our hearts...no shortage tonight Hearts fuel our will with courage to fight
I tried to meet you in the middle...a wide-eyed protest singer I brought a peace sign I had whittled...you brought your middle finger
A token band-aid will not fix these things that have been broken Ask Kaepernick or Dixie Chicks what happens when you're woken
The Big Bad Wolf is knocking...knocking on our door His huff and puff are not the stuff of stories anymore
I woke up a long time ago, now I can't close my eyes The dream can't be reality until the nightmare dies
We've moved beyond excuses now...these aren't growing pains It's time to put some flesh back on the skeletal remains
I dreamed I saw Phil Ochs last night, alive as you and me Sam Stone was standing by his side, his children at his knee
AutoCorrct: Satan's Spawn!
Garden Party (the story of Eden from the snake's perspective)
The Seven Deadly Sins (the untold story)
Ain't I A Woman (The True Story Of Sojourner Truth)
The ABC of CRT
Banning Books: The Bonfire of the Insanities
Prine Time (The Mailman Delivers)
Mickey Mouse Comes Out!
Trump! The Musical!
Not every vessel travels on the sea Tonight God's love for you pours out of me
It's not impossible to make a way And feel God's promise at the break of day
The sun will be waking soon And I want to watch that sunrise with you
Like willows in the wind Watching a brand new day begin
What can't be seen tonight, will be revealed tomorrow This mystery called life, can bring more joy than sorrow
You'll know why Tomorrow still shines bright You made it through the night It's gonna be alright And you'll know why
Just one step toward tomorrow, Unlocks open doors Faith holds the key you can borrow, till you can reclaim what is yours
A drop left in the reservoir's enough to start a flow A trickle can become a stream, just ask me how I know
And when that day arrives, you're gonna understand Why we're both on this bridge tonight, two pieces of one plan
We only have the gift of now...this moment that we're in And like this bridge it stretches...from "could be" to "might've been"
No, I don't have a crystal ball. Yeah, some things are unknown But I know God put me here now, for reasons of His own
Give them the gift of time, the gift of growing old And I have faith you'll be repaid, at least a thousand fold
The seeds you planted yesterday still need your love and care How will the garden blossom if the gardener's not there?
They'll still sit down for supper but they'll face an empty chair, They'll say a prayer remembering the face that isn't there
One more candle on the cake One more wish you get to make
First blush of love's first touch Sweet kiss that means so much
The brilliant night sky's canopy The wonder of what's yet to be
The crimson glow as daylight fades The sunrise songbirds serenade
The softness of a newborns skin Her perfume wafting on the wind
When the Devil reaches for your soul to steal it There's an angel who will shield you...can you feel it? I can feel it...I can feel it...
What matters most can feel like mist It's best to hold it with an open fist
Oak trees fall before the fury of the wind But we are willows...we were built to bend
Back to who you'll be tomorrow...past the shadows and the sorrow Back to love and light and oooo...back to you (pamby1's verse tagline)
A single step...a step my way...will keep you safe The only leap you need to take...is a leap of faith
Can you feel that night breeze blowing, can you smell what's on the wind/ Can you hear my heart...it's waiting to begin to beat again
Cause someone's gonna miss you, someone's gonna grieve/ Wishing they could turn back time and give you what you need
One breath...then another, one step at a time/ That's the way the mountain Bends to let us make the climb
Cause life's taught me the hard way, it's a heartbeat at a time/ And broken hearts still beat, so if you just reach out for mine....(reach out for mine)
You feel like giving up, your heart is broken but it's beating. Right now life don't make sense but there's a reason why we're meeting
Cause love can shine a light, be a beacon for the blindness That tries to close our eyes to life's wonder and life's kindness
This bridge is haunted by all the ghosts of those who fell, Who fell for all the lies that the Devil likes to tell
The waters down below been promising you something, But the Devil is a liar...that water don't know nothing
I know that empty feeling, like there's nothing left to lose, Cause it wasn't all that long ago when I stood in your shoes
This damn bridge is haunted By ghosts who gave it what it wanted
I don't have a clue But I'd like to talk...would you?
It's awful dark out here tonight I sure could use a little light
You got your reasons...I got mine too You feel like talkin' maybe we could share a few
My heart is listening We don't need words
Hey...Can I get a little help?
Pandora's Smile
The Lift
Cloud Shine
Unbroken
Cloudburst
This Earth's a speck of blue A glistening drop of dew Clinging to a single blade of green
Butterflies in flight Wings beat back the night It's gonna be alright...just wait and see
As we live and believe We will give and receive The beautiful blessings of love
We were born with the answer Love is the dance...and life is the dancer
Time will dry our tears And doubts will disappear As caring erases it all* (credit to Kayly)*
Now each time you whisper I can hear your echo call now each time I stumble you'll be there to break my fall
A recipe that nourishes and fills our emptiness A heaping cup of kindness and a sprinkle of respect
The beam of life repeating like the pulsing of a star
A bolt of blue repeating like a beacon in the dark
Ahead we see the finish that was hidden at the start
Impossible is possible as sparks light up the dark
As shadows lift we feel the sunlight's kiss upon our skin As chaos shifts the healing gift of harmony begins
Like flowers turn their faces to the sky to find the sun Our yearning hearts are turning to the love in everyone
Like gray days need the rainbow glow that comes after the storm Our shaken hearts need kindness and respect to keep us warm
Respect can be that breath of air, that helps refresh our souls/ Kindness can be our heart's repair, that heals and makes us whole
We can be the pebble, feel the Butterfly Effect We can spread the ripple, with kindness and respect...kindness and respect
Winds have been the hurricane, now let them bring the calm Rains have brought the flood of pain, now let them pour the balm
Kindness is the quiet cure For all the madness we've endured
Kindness is the warm sunshine That parts the clouds that crowd our minds
So let's go old school...let's go Golden Rule Put this distance behind us
Let's dig deep...we know what we need And we already know where to find it
We don't need a miracle to put this pain behind us Just a mixture of respect and the milk of human kindness
When life's a dead end road surrounded by a ten foot wall Remember roads can bend and walls can fall
Sharing this marble spin in space It takes grit...but it also takes some grace
All the best things start With an open heart...an open heart
It feels a little risky to look you in the eye Move past the mask and take a chance but we just gotta try
Trudging through the darkness in a fog that will not lift It's time to shine the light we share and give the world our gift
Step by weary step we've wept and yet we've come this far Take a breath with me and let's remember who we are
Searching for direction we've been stumbling in the dark Fumbling for the compass we all carry in our hearts
And me, I haven't smiled much myself in quite a while
Like kindness is imprisoned And respect has been exiled
Respect is on the witness stand As kindness goes on trial
A minute lasts for hours and an inch stretches for miles
Let's fix that with a vaccine that does not come from a vial
Our eyes can't mask the sadness that has worn us for a while
It's time to take a breath or two and try to understand It's time to build a bridge to you as I reach out my hand
The sound of one hand clapping is a plea...a poem...a prayer But two hands clap the rhythm of the heartbeat we all share
I know deep in my soul we're really not that far apart Eight billion of us suffering the same damn broken heart
Been so much fear behind the white hot noise Been hard to hear that kind and quiet voice
An honest conversation spans the space and builds a bridge
And search for common ground beneath our shifting constant skies For any sign of kindness in each other's mirror eyes
To bridge this distance...breach these walls Is anybody listening...anyone at all?
Since time has been suspended I'm more careful when I wish And when I wish...I wish for this
The echo of my lonely voice Don't fill this emptiness
It's louder than the shouted word It's stronger than the fist
The sound that bridges distances and fills this emptiness
The silence that is louder than this noise
The look that says somebody understands
We've been gathering in silos where we've heard Paul Simon's sound We've been burrowing in bunkers overwhelmed and underground
Shadow on the surface of the sun Blocking light and casting night on everyone
What did Aretha say when Atlas shrugged? Aren't we children longing to be loved?
This weary world's been waiting years...been wading thru too many tears We're drowning in these deep end fears...that take our breath away
Heart to heart...here in the dark/No distance now...and we both know how...
Lose your worries in the dark/honey love has finally found you/And our bodies let us know/what our hearts are gettin' down to
Yeah turn on the Temptations/smooth all around/Cause it's time to bring the romance/it's our time for gettin' down
Ain't no distance when we dance...gettin' lost and gettin' found/Ain't no distance when we dance...gettin' up and gettin' down
Ride the rainbow at the speed of sound/Goin' up up up...and gettin' down
You taste the bass line in your bones...I'll shake the loneliness I've known/If I forget your hips know how...now is the time for gettin' down
Now what's lost is found in the motion and the sound/Two hearts are pounding and two souls are gettin' down
Sparks are flying and dark is lit alright/No denying where we're gonna take this night
And you know you leave me breathless, like a precious work of art/But I didn't come this distance just to worship from afar
And you're priceless and you're precious like a work of art alright/But we both know this ain't gonna be a look but don't touch night
But you're not stuck up in a frame behind some velvet rope/You're flesh and blood and when we touch you flood my heart with hope
And you’re standing in your doorway where you meet me with a kiss/And your touch is like a promise and your smile’s like a wish
Cause your kiss is like a whisper telling secrets that we share/And we’re gonna make some new ones just as soon as I get there
Where all this lost gets found...all this lonely turns around/We’re forgetting all this crazy cause we’re both for gettin’ down
And if you believe in magic (and I'm thinkin' that you do/We can make it to another world where music pulls us through
And it don't take but a minute to be hungry for your touch/And the phone won't get it done not when I'm wanting you this much
We been alone for so long 'bout to turn that mess around/Cause I feel the way you feel me now we're up for gettin' down
I know what's gonna happen cause we've both been so alone/For so long...for so long
And the world starts spinning beautifully again/Cause I'm breathing out the ugly just by breathing you in
Goes on sending a message to the marrow of my bones/Goes on telling me something I forgot I'd always known
Goes on sending a message to the marrow of my bones/Goes on telling me something I forgot I'd always known
And it's a hard landing when you crash without a cushion/When gravity is pullin' you and desperation's pushin'
Like dancin' in molasses...been in slo mo for so long/I don't know where my swag is at or where my mojo's gone
Sometimes it's hard gettin' out of bed/Sometimes it's even harder gettin' out of my head
Sometimes it's hard to get out of my bed/Sometimes it's hard to get out of my head
Mother Mercy...Sister Grace/Bring the brightness back my way
It's about to be a sugar show/Shakin' sugar out the sugar bowl
Shake the sacred ground and break the chain/Make the leap and take the freedom train
Ride the rhythm of the wind/Open up and let the music in
Night is moving at the speed of light/Hearts are pounding at the speed of sound
Rhythm pumping up against my chest/Heartbeat hurricane...heartbeat hurricane
There's a light around the moon tonight/There's a brightness in your eyes
Now I know this duet is never gonna end/I love making music with my best friend
Now my heart beats faster when I kiss you/But the world spins slower when I'm with you
You bring the rhythm to my best rhyme/And I need you to write the next line
The past has been wiped clean/Your love fills the whole screen
I needed this duet with you...cause my solo heart was made for two
The faith that had stumbled...Two left feet that bumbled
As the groom and the bride we'll make a promise that's final
A double chocolate scoop
The spoon that stirs the stew
Like dreams are made for sharing, and hearts are made for caring...yeah it's trueq
Like eyes are made for gazing, and lips are made for tasting
We belong together and this sweet surprise...needs u and i... needs You and I
See my sunset turn into sunrise...such a sweet surprise
That hearts aren't built to fit one size
That hearts don't have to be shaded blue/Cause hearts are actually made for two
Yeah and you bring rhythm to my best rhyme/Gotta have your love to write the next line
But now I do/Honey hearts like yours and mine are made for two
Why the world turned slower when you took my hand/Why my heart beat faster...now I understand
I sang my song alone until we met And it became a beautiful duet
We can pull each other through / You’ll heal me and I’ll heal you
We can pull each other through / You’ll heal me and I’ll heal you
I can feel this heartbeat growing stronger every day/The steady spread of courage and a new world on the way
I can feel this heartbeat growing stronger every day/The steady spread of courage and the will to find a way
Father we are guided by the light that leads us still/By tenderness and mercy and the wisdom of Your will
Now the shadows that surround us need the sunshine to be seen (MJ had a similar concept)/And the river that is raging fills the well that washes clean...and all the space between
When the masquerade is over and the fear has been erased/We'll no longer need the cover when we're smiling face to face...lifted by God's grace
I look at you and I see me/Ain't that the way it's meant to be?
There's an answer in the marrow of our bones/And it's whispering we're really not alone
When the worry deep inside you is a weight upon your heart/And you're praying God will guide you through the long and lonely dark/ Well here's a start...here's a start
When the thundercloud you're under sends you running from the rain/We can be each other's cover and the cure for all this pain
We've been out of touch for so long/We've been starving for "hello"
Don't have to run from the thunder/Don't have to run from the rain
If fear tries to enslave us/Let us be courageous
Let love spread like Heaven's breath/The calm inside the chaos
Let it spread like Heaven's breath/The calm inside the chaos
Let it spread like Heaven's breath/Blowing pain away
There's calm in the chaos/The eye of the storm
Take the gift that God gave us/And spread it around
We can pull each other through / You'll heal me and I'll heal you
Can't quarantine kindness/Can't mask...the love that God gave us/Because love is the cure/And the cure is contagious
Can't quarantine kindness/Mask the love that God gave us
Keepers
Can you feel the butterfly breeze Blowing over emotional seas
My idea for the hook/title is Butterfly Breeze. It's a reference to the actual phenomenon of the butterfly effect ANDa metaphor for how we are all affected/connected by seemingly distant and tiny happenings. I'll follow up tomorrow with a couplet ?
One heartbeat...can't you feel it too? / One rhythm calling me and you...to be One World
One absence, a space we will not fill/One presence, a spirit with us still
One blanket covering us all/One feeling cushioning the fall
One strand that stretches soul to soul/One web of life that makes us whole
Now spring brings a rebirth as green replaces gray/And Heaven touches us on Earth in such a hopeful way
Under one canopy of boundless blue/You are bound to me and I to you
Spring brings a rebirth as green replaces gray/Heaven touches Earth in such a hopeful way
One breath no longer held in check/Thank God...and let us not forget...we are One World
One web of life binds each to each/One shining star is now in reach...for one world
One strand that stretches soul to soul/One web that holds and makes us whole...One World
One breath no longer held in check/Thank God...and let us not forget...we are One World
One beam emerging from the dark One world making a brand new start
One world, creates one chrysalis Behold our metamorphosis
One world, one hopeful destiny/ One heart to harbor you and me
And when we look up, we'll see the sun/Shining down on everyone
Something in my heart's begun to stir / wondering if we'll be the way we were / praying past the pain, love will lead the way / helping us to heal
As old as time as new as now/And we know how...yes we know how
One Tree of Life with roots that bind/Our destinies are intertwined...One world
From so many different rhythms comes a single song...human strong/So sing along...One world
Though I may never see your face, and I may never take your hand/Still we will touch in other ways, just takes our hearts to understand
As one world...butterfly effect/The beating of your fragile wings is faint and far and yet...
As...one world...backs against the wall/But walls will one day fall and we'll stand tall
The palm of God...His fingers curled/Creates a cradle for the fall
Once the dust has settled and the sun shines strong/In the afterglow of a brand new dawn
Bridges not walls/Barriers fall/Under one banner unfurled
As one world...there's no Plan B/ Just this big marble spinning in infinity
(But) Spring brings a rebirth - green replaces gray/ Heaven touches Earth - in such a hopeful way
Hey it's time to build the better world we've dreamt of all these years
Freeze frame photograph of empty streets/Timelapse tapestry of one world...and our heart still beats
What I see reflected in your eyes/Is my mirror minus the disguise
All our fortress walls are falling down/All our padlocked doors are open now
Hands can't touch but hearts still do and so/We're filling all the empty left by all the letting go
Hands can't touch but hearts still do and so/We
While the world is holding its collective breath/ Life is playing peekaboo with death
Robin out my window greets the dawn/Singing like she don't know all that's gone/Maybe she knows best, how to pass this test of faith and fear
Businesses are shuttered lights are dark/Mother Earth feels more like Noah's ark/Where we end up now, will depend on how the ship is steered
We could all be scattered to the winds/Or this could be where our new world begins/Under the same sun, if we work as one, right now...right here
Now the eerie quiet is a cry/Breath we hold is hoping for a sigh/As the borders close and the distance grows/So do our fears (But I know there's an answer to our prayers
With all this time to kill/And all these hearts to fill/We got a shot at doing what once seemed impossible
The bare bones dance to a brand new tune/With an ageless truth 'neath an ancient moon
My 2020 vision's let me see/How clearly borderlines are just as blurry as can be
Crossing borders...no allegiance or alliance/Taking orders...from the principles of science
If love and sacrifice decide how tall we stand/It takes the stars to take the measure...of the man
When footprints in the sand have gone from 4 to 2/We're not alone because He carries...Me and you
When footprints in the sand have gone from 4 to 2/We're not alone because He carries...because He carries...
And tonight- with Polaris shining true/I pull your compass from my pocket/Carry it & carry you
And tonight with Polaris shining true/Pull your compass from my pocket/Carry it and carry you
Now I know what it means to be a man Because you showed me how to stand Stand up for what matters most
Now I know what it means to be a man Because you taught me how to stand Stand up for what matters most
And I have always known/From the strength you've always shown/When that loving loan comes due/I will carry you
Carry you...like a pilgrim carries prayer/I will carry you...like a whisper carries air
Time has finally come/ (To show you) I'm my father's son
Willow in the wind/Will not break...just bend
Till Heaven sends your chariot/Lend me your pain...I'll carry it
And tiny legs grow weary/tired eyes go bleary But iron arms are always Daddy strong
When your weary bones Whisper rest/And the fears you've known Weigh like granite headstones on your chest
Waking to the smell of bacon...coffee by the bed/It still takes a tick or two to get it through his head
In this space we savor the grace and the favor, This gift for which we did not pray
The depth of the peace that brings sweet release, has swept the last vestige of heartache away
Stolen moments that we've known We can't own...we only borrow/Like this life...they're just on loan/Due today or due tomorrow
And though these moments tease us/While making their escape Their fleeting presence frees us/To make our dreams take shape
In the breath we release lies the freedom and peace, To transcend both the fright and the fight
In the folding petals of a dimming day/Stolen moments still float down from God's bouquet
