Lyrics

pale

Written By: kim craig

lyrics.........

PALE
my spiritual sense of self
is still within me
are the tendrils
falling soft
on the branches
of your body
like sticks and skin
inside the dreams
of what looked to glimmer
-its a pale moon and a bright dawn-
human community
with extra life-infested
waters on the brim
on the brim of longevity
and under the influence
humanity mutates
-its weather shift, a weather shift-

GODMAN

Written By: kim craig

GODMAN
he looks like a godman
in the flesh
transfixed, untamed
the water rushes
around he feet

they crowd around the falls
gather to see
this man
on brink
of life or eternity
-break-
over the falls
grows a cloud of mist
his tall body looms
in the watery distance
as he waits to jump for
that life saving ring

upon the safety
of the bank
they are left standing, wondering
was it the luck of love
or a wing from above
holdin' on to his feet

...-i'm not thinkin'
of dyin'...i'm not
thinkin' about death
i'm not thinkin' about
funeral pires.. blowing
in the east-


daily dosage

Written By: kim craig

DAILY DOSAGE
i want to die
slips like smoke
from her lips
take me to
the ocean

your daily dosage
created this
your fucked up
mentality
distorted our reality

theres a dragon cloud
over the bridge
i take you to your
#90 new york train

you never thought
that it would last
so oh okay
your gone now
still in the stars
to me baby
