Fool's Gold

Written By: Annie Dingwall

Fool’s Gold
Annie Dingwall

There is writing on the floor
Etched between my toes
Underneath the dirt and grime I hardly see the code
Of tales so long ago
From those now down below
They understood the laws that bind and govern what we know
Everything we’re told
How life’s to unfold…They say

JUST ROLL WITH THE RIVER
ENJOY THE SUNNY WEATHER
AND LOVE
DON’T HOLD ONTO A SLIVER
OF WHAT YOU THINK’S FOREVER
CUZ AFTERALL
IT’S JUST FOOL’S GOLD

My jeans are filled up to the brim
With loads of shiny tin
I thought would make me happy when I finally reach the end
But all that might have been
Before my mind leaves this skin
I realize now is just a pile of superficial grins
Brought in by the winds
And not the light within…They say

JUST ROLL WITH THE RIVER
ENJOY THE SUNNY WEATHER
AND LOVE
DON’T HOLD ONTO A SLIVER
OF WHAT YOU THINK’S FOREVER
CUZ AFTERALL
IT’S JUST FOOL’S GOLD

There’s a problem with the current way
Of pricing every person based on hourly wage
And what if there just wasn’t a gauge…And we

JUST ROLL WITH THE RIVER
ENJOY THE SUNNY WEATHER
AND LOVE
DON’T HOLD ONTO A SLIVER
OF WHAT YOU THINK’S FOREVER
CUZ AFTERALL
JUST ROLL WITH THE RIVER
ENJOY THE SUNNY WEATHER
AND LOVE
DON’T HOLD ONTO A SLIVER
OF WHAT YOU THINK’S FOREVER
CUZ AFTERALL
IT’S JUST FOOL’S GOLD

Hey Momma (Momma Momma)

Hey Momma (Momma Momma)
Annie Dingwall and Angela Kaset

Hey Momma, I’m leaving home
Strong enough, to do it on my own
And it’s thanks, thanks to you

Yea, Yea it’s a big bad world
And yea, yea I’m still your girl
But you gotta believe that you taught me
What’s real what’s true

AND THE TIME HAS COME AND I’M TOO BIG
TO LIVE IN THE SHELTER OF YOUR WINGS
AND THE TIME HAS COME BUT THAT’S NOT HOW YOU FEEL
AND IT’S HARD KNOWING THAT YOU’RE BROKEN
WHEN ALL I SEE ARE SKIES WIDE OPEN
AND I’M GOING BUT YOUR’RE HOLDING ON
SO PLEASE KNOW THIS, THAT IF I MUST
I WILL ALWAYS FIND MY WAY BACK
PLEASE KNOW THIS, THAT IF I MUST
I WILL ALWAYS FIND MY WAY BACK HOME

And Momma, Momma, it’s okay to cry
Just hold me close this one more time
And may your tears be not of fear
But joy and pride


CUZ THE TIME HAS COME AND I’M TOO BIG
TO LIVE IN THE SHELTER OF YOUR WINGS
AND THE TIME HAS COME BUT THAT’S NOT HOW YOU FEEL
AND IT’S HARD KNOWING THAT YOU’RE BROKEN
WHEN ALL I SEE ARE SKIES WIDE OPEN
AND I’M GOING BUT YOUR’RE HOLDING ON
SO PLEASE KNOW THIS, THAT IF I MUST
I WILL ALWAYS FIND MY WAY BACK
PLEASE KNOW THIS, THAT IF I MUST
I WILL ALWAYS FIND MY WAY BACK HOME

Trail of Stardust

Written By: Annie Dingwall

Trail of Stardust
Annie Dingwall

Fall off the radar
Slink past the watch guards
Seen by only the stars
As you try to melt away
But from where you lay

ALL YOU KNOW NOW
IS THE HEART ACHE
THAT’S DEEP AS THE NIDNIGHT SKY
AND A LOVE THAT
LIKE THE MOON LIGHT
WAS THERE THEN VAPORIZED
WITH ONLY A TRAIL OF STARDUST
TO REMEMBER ME BY

Just let it sink in
As footsteps in the distance
Search for some evidence
To lead them straight to you
But from their clues

ALL THEY KNOW NOW
IS THE HEART ACHE
THAT’S DEEP AS THE NIDNIGHT SKY
AND A LOVE THAT
LIKE THE MOON LIGHT
WAS THERE THEN VAPORIZED
WITH ONLY A TRAIL OF STARDUST
TO REMEMBER YOU BY

Oh and it’s clear that there’s nowhere left to run to
And the fire will keep chasing till you stop

ALL THAT’S LEFT IS
A HEARTACHE
THAT’S DEEP AS THE MIDNIGHT SKY
AND A LOVE THAT
LIKE THE MOON LIGHT
WAS THERE THEN VAPORIZED
WITH ONLY A TRAIL OF STARDUST
TO REMEMBER YOU BY

157 boxes
Row after row, page after page
With your pen you’re God and Satan
Deciding who will be saved and
Who will be erased

CUZ YOU’RE HERE ON EVERY PAGE I READ
LIVING OUT YOUR FANTASIES AS MR. SUPERHERO
AND YOU WEAR A MASK AS YOUR DISGUISE
SO I CAN NEVER SEE INSIDE
AND ON THE FINAL PAGE YOU ALWAYS STAND ALONE
IS THIS HOW YOU PICTURE YOU’LL LIVE
OR WILL YOU SKETCH ME IN

A dialogue is set in ink
Wouldn’t it be so nice if I could always read
Exactly what you think
But instead, you organize chaos
Sweeping in to save the day you caused to go wrong

AND YOU’RE HERE ON EVERY PAGE I READ
LIVING OUT YOUR FANTASIES AS MR. SUPERHERO
AND YOU WEAR A MASK AS YOUR DISGUISE
SO I CAN NEVER SEE INSIDE
AND ON THE FINAL PAGE YOU ALWAYS STAND ALONE
IS THIS HOW YOU PICTURE YOU’LL LIVE
OR WILL YOU SKETCH ME IN

It’s funny how you always seem to make your comics come alive
Should I take this as a fortune and get on with my life

CUZ YOU’RE HERE ON EVERY PAGE I READ
LIVING OUT YOUR FANTASIES AS MR. SUPERHERO
AND YOU WEAR A MASK AS YOUR DISGUISE
SO I CAN NEVER SEE INSIDE
AND ON THE FINAL PAGE YOU ALWAYS STAND ALONE
IS THIS HOW YOU PICTURE YOU’LL LIVE
OR WILL YOU SKETCH ME IN
