    You've fallen barefoot past the treeline
    Peeping boned-eyed, birches sway
    And a thousand whitefish floating belly up
    In the spirit that I crave
    And we threw ourselves right into it
    Where lay the bodies had been claimed
    We dove a third, a fourth, a fifth
    Banned to the spirit that I crave

    Dreams unwind.
    Love’s a state of mind.

    As I walk through the woods on this cold winters eve
    I hear voices far away it's so hard to believe
    That I'm hearing all of this with my very own ears
    I am standing all alone, not another soul is near

    I thought I heard young man ask father what to we do
    With these brand new uniforms of grey that they've given to me and you
    He said, boy that color represents our great Fatherland
    So wear it with honor, one day you'll understand

    I thought I heard young wife say husband I love you
    I will be standing here waiting for you when the war is through
    I heard the solider reply my dear I promise I'll be fine
    I won't be gone long it's just a matter of time

    Northern winds blow on through our great Fatherland
    Here today and yesteryear reunited once again
    Hear the cry of the Wehrmacht lost many years ago
    Cannons thunder and a lonesome commanders whsitle blow
    Share your pride inside with your fellow rebels souls
    Hear the stories from beyond the grave so many left untold
    Keep our Fatherland alive in your heart and in your minds
    Northern winds blow once again and will until the end of time

    I was in an almost mercenary military outfit in the 60's and early 70's. Our slogan, and what I used as a title to one of my books, was 'War is our business, and right now business is good'.

    Woodstock happened without our knowledge but one of the songs, (Country Joe and the Fish- Viet Nam song), became one of our favorites in '69.

    Well, come on all of you, big strong men,
    Uncle Sam needs your help again.
    He's got himself in a terrible jam
    Way down yonder in Vietnam
    So put down your books and pick up a gun,
    We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

    And it's one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
    Next stop is Vietnam;
    And it's five, six, seven,
    Open up the pearly gates,
    Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
    Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

    Come on Wall Street, don't be slow,
    Why man, this is war au-go-go
    There's plenty good money to be made
    By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
    But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
    They drop it on the Viet Cong.

    And it's one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
    Next stop is Vietnam.
    And it's five, six, seven,
    Open up the pearly gates,
    Well there ain't no time to wonder why
    Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

    Well, come on generals, let's move fast;
    Your big chance has come at last.
    Now you can go out and get those reds
    'Cause the only good commie is the one that's dead
    And you know that peace can only be won
    When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

    And it's one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
    Next stop is Vietnam;
    And it's five, six, seven,
    Open up the pearly gates,
    Well there ain't no time to wonder why
    Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

    Come on mothers throughout the land,
    Pack your boys off to Vietnam.
    Come on fathers, and don't hesitate
    To send your sons off before it's too late.
    And you can be the first ones in your block
    To have your boy come home in a box.

    And it's one, two, three
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
    Next stop is Vietnam.
    And it's five, six, seven,
    Open up the pearly gates,
    Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
    Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

    Sittin' here all alone,
    A disconnected phone.
    Tired of the downhill climb,
    I'm hungry for the end of time.
    Forgive me if I lose my way tonight . . .

    “I noticed at the ceremony your corrupt ways have finally made you blind/ I can’t remember your face anymore, your mouth’s changed, your eyes don’t look into mine/ The priest wore black on the seventh day and sat stone-faced while the building burned/ I waited for you on the running boards, near the cypress trees, while the springtime turned/ Slowly into autumn”

    When snow so deep
    The bears all sleep to keep themselves alive
    They do what they must for now
    And trust in their plan
    If I trust in mine, somehow I might find who I am

    But where do I go from here?
    So many voices ringing in my ear
    Which is the voice that I was meant to hear?
    How will I know?
    Where do I go from here?

    My world has changed and so have I
    I've learned to choose
    And even learned to say goodbye
    The path ahead's so hard to see
    It winds and bends but where it ends
    Depends on only me

    In my heart I don't feel part of so much I've known
    Now it seems it's time to start,
    A new life on my own

    Well it's alright, even if you're old and grey
    Well it's alright, you still got something to say
    Well it's alright, remember to live and let live
    Well it's alright, the best you can do is forgive

    When the still sea conspires an armor
    And her sullen and aborted
    Currents breed tiny monsters
    True sailing is dead
    Awkward instant
    And the first animal is jettisoned
    Legs furiously pumping
    Their stiff green gallop
    And heads bob up
    Poise
    Delicate
    Pause
    Consent
    In mute nostril agony
    Carefully refined
    And sealed over​

    The rain is on the roof
    Hurry high butterfly
    As clouds roll past my head
    I know why the skys all cry
    OM, OM, Heaven, OM

    The Earth turns slowly round
    Far away the distant sound
    Is with us everyday
    Can you hear what it say
    OM, OM, Heaven, OM

    The rain is on the roof
    Hurry high butterfly
    As clouds roll past my head
    I know why the skys all cry
    OM, OM, Heaven, OM​

    All I need to have a good time
    Is a reefer, a woman and a bottle of wine
    With those three things I don't need no sunshine
    A reefer, a woman and a bottle of wine

    All I want is to never grow old
    I want to wash in a bathtub of gold
    I want 97 kilos already rolled
    I want to wash in a bathtub of gold

    Gettin' money is so easy
    They give you all they got
    If you just put 'em up against the wall
    And say that they're gonna get shot!

    I want to light my cigars with ten-dollar bills
    I'd like to have a cattle ranch in Beverly Hills
    I'd like a bottle of redeye that's always filled
    I'd like to have a cattle ranch in Beverly Hills​

    Ask my baby what she wants to be
    She'll say a monkey swinging in a tree
    Ask my baby what she's thinking of
    She'll say there's nothing greater than love

    Oh, the year was 1778, HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!
    A letter of marque come from the king,
    To the scummiest vessel I'd ever seen,

    God damn them all!
    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns-shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier
    The last of Barrett's Privateers.

    Oh, Elcid Barrett cried the town, HOW I WISH I WAS . . .
    For twenty brave men all fishermen who
    would make for him the Antelope's crew
    (chorus)

    The Antelope sloop was a sickening sight,
    She'd a list to the port and and her sails in rags
    And the cook in scuppers with the staggers and the jags
    (chorus)

    On the King's birthday we put to sea,
    We were 91 days to Montego Bay
    Pumping like madmen all the way
    (chorus)

    On the 96th day we sailed again,
    When a bloody great Yankee hove in sight
    With our cracked four pounders we made to fight
    (chorus)

    The Yankee lay low down with gold,
    She was broad and fat and loose in the stays
    But to catch her took the Antelope two whole days
    (chorus)

    Then at length we stood two cables away,
    Our cracked four pounders made an awful din
    But with one fat ball the Yank stove us in
    (chorus)

    The Antelope shook and pitched on her side,
    Barrett was smashed like a bowl of eggs
    And the Maintruck carried off both me legs
    (chorus)

    So here I lay in my 23rd year,
    It's been 6 years since we sailed away
    And I just made Halifax yesterday
    (chorus)​
     
  17. If you are the dealer, let me out of the game
    If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
    If thine is the glory, mine must be the shame

    You want it darker

    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my lord

    The socialites and psychopaths are dancing with each other

    You know sometimes obstacles in life can really knock you down. yeah. And life can really make you feel like nobody give a damn.
    And i know its hard and its cold and unfair. But if you keep one thing on your mind, and that thing is whatever you do.
    You can make it...and just trust in yourself and hold on to your dreams. Because your dreams are the future of this world.
    Let it show you. Let it show you the ways.
