38 Degrees in the Middle East

We eat to remember what we did to you
We drink to remember what we did to you
A hollow ritual bathed in absolutely nothing
That stands to resemble
The cost of crying on this Earth like you chose to do

Some sing in a strained falsetto
and believe it's quite enough
Some play their ancient pianos
and claim nothing need be done
All hell displayed in their golden statues
All hail corruptions grip
Don't share your health with anyone

While we clap our hands
We'll paint our martyrs blood red
In the eyes of our forgiving hands
I'm damaged beyond repair
Oh you saints draw near
I'll show you what I hold dear
It's not a matter of relevance
It's an object of fear
Crusty eyes glow bright
under a faint yet warm light
Irrevocable they claimed
But we both knew this was right
Then came that face I knew
Tonight I have stained it stone blue
With the flowing of tears
I won't be the last to share this pain with you

Gotta Love Those Polar Bears

I can't figure out if I've lost my mind
but if ya give me some time
I might try to hide the words I'm writing
But fatal demands seem far away
and as I think about everything
I start to realize that my heart'll tell me where I'm supposed to stay
confidence came with me that day
and made the man in me want to say
what never could before come out
but always wanted to anywa
a fragile breath that was somewhat laced
half with pain, but half with your beautiful face
since all my time has been spent
making so many mistakes

So count the circles on your wrist
the one I'd love to kiss
and know that it'll never get twisted again
If oceans had an end
I'd take you by the hand
and we'd explore the seas from land to land

can you feel this entering your heart?
a relationship off to a wonderful start
but please keep in mind
so many things could tear this apart
but this is all part of the plan
when God grabbed me by the hand and said,
"Son, you know you're gonna have an awesome life
even though you'll get screwed over so many times."

These massive mocha mounds
This heresy
This speaks to me like a chocolate covered cherry
But no they don't break out
They break free
Drench a chicken Caesar salad with some marinated empathy
They find it so easy, considered clean
are the jokes that center 'round a weighty carouselfish poppyseed
Bent out of shape
I dream to let a chubby man delight
in what the thinner ones could never see

Say it fast! Say it dry!
Say we found a way keep clean
This repertoire of vinyl shrank to CD
You're pathetic, you're insulting and demeaning
Broke your own rules
Just to set a fake policy
Tell me what do you mean
You're without a cause, a sickness in theory
You're an extra large shirt in a Vogue magazine
In a Vogue magazine

It's light enough on your own
A cross to bear for your long forgotten son

We spoke without words for years
there's a fear that got trampled this weekend
a pantomime hung above our heads
he mouthed the words out to this song
before I could ever dream it
and left blank notes upon our beds

This heart of mine played a part
with the scent of a freshly born season
while fate and luck walked hand in hand
some worthless milligrams stopped taking life
and stealing reasons
and my Duran found my Duran

Dear God, I've found it's not too late
these feelings themselves are waves
a silent sinner sang my past
but oceans never turn to glass

We can believe that there's a peace that lies outside of dreams
You've got this Texan blood a'boiling
Who put this treasure chest in front of me?
With a note attached that spoke the words that were the key

Let's stay in this one for a while
