God's Glory

Beyond the limits
of where my eyes can see
Feet can walk
or mind conceive
Is where Your work
Your greatness
Your glory
Begins

Soul Sucker

Like a leech that
sucks the blood
You sucked my soul
Thus my turn
to a creature cold

The dance

In and out
back and forth
The beautiful rhythm
a dance in it's own

Trois

They say two's a bore
and three a party
I propose a toast
to the experience of glee

Impotence of the mind

We're having impotence
of the mind
Like a generational curse
We're born with seed
but aren't giving birth
We don't take care of it
don't water
And passing it on to the kids
what disaster

We're having impotence
of the mind
Rotting our brains out
Programmed by a box
using it as a way out
of time with ourselves
Living another's hell
a story another impotent fool tells
Yet no knowledge of our inner self

We're having impotence
of the mind
We need to cut loose
To sit alone in the dark
and rediscover the spark
that ignited in our child

We're having impotence
of the mind
Let's turn off the box
Spend time with our families
Spend time with God
Break bread with our friends
and more importantly our self
Water your seed, watch it grow
It's the best gift
to the seeds of tomorrow

Plateau Phase

It was pure
it was gay
Now starting to morph
to shades of gray

Tell Her

For all the world to know
that she is the one
But her not hearing it
from the tip of your tongue

A woman needs to be told
needs to hear the words
She needs constant assurance
from the man in her life
