Vainglorious Apollyon

I’m not sure who are you’re trying to fool here
With your empirical discharge of conundrums,
Of uneven measured triangles, overly squared demi circles
Wrapped in redundant enigmas and ongoing driveled riddles.

Just cause I’m wearing high heels and a white dress
You think I’ve lost my view on the agnostic sense of Gnosticism
And all the answers fell into a trench of amnesic state
And I’ve become a beggar lurking in darkness in search for light.

But let me tell you pal, your declaration of omnipotent grandiose
Is nothing but a tiny junction stone that needs to be set aside
That eagle head looks too heavy on you, even more the sun as your crown
Plus the eleven shines brighter, longer, when you are already thirty three.

Better make haste, for the deep waters are commencing to open their mouths
You’re best to apologize to Poseidon, for his disciples might swallow you whole
You wouldn’t want to find me riding that sleeping beast lying on my backyard
Or lay my cup on you for the pact constituted, to send in the black hounds, oh no.

Bloody Mary

Mary Mary
Bloody Mary
Pray to god
That I bleed this weekend
Cause if not
We would have to answer
For our actions.

You transmuted your heart of gold into lead
When you transfixed your soul into a stone statue
Your carnal desire and your compassion
Have been fighting one another
Baby, one day you’re a lover
Other days you’re a fighter
But not only have you’ve been fighting your shadow
But you’ve been fighting everything
Everyone else that’s around you
And you should be careful throwing punches
You might hit someone you might not want to.

Mary Mary
Bloody Mary
Ask the mirror for revelation
Cause if you cannot see your own reflection
Then we have to stop
This vampiristic passion.

You rearranged that wide space in your head
And filled it up with impossible standards and lunacy
And like the word implies, must be the moon
Cause now you’re howling and looking to hunt down
Whoever gets in your way
But I’m not your enemy
I may be the prey in your eyes
And thought you can feed off my flesh
Please leave my heart unscarred.
I’ll sing you lullaby, if that’s what you required me to do.
Come rest calmly in my arms
Sometimes a man needs a shelter
A woman to confide his fear of
Being alone, and feeling vulnerable.

Mary Mary
Bloody Mary
I’d give you of my virginal juice
If in exchange you share of your tainted heart
Let me the one to fix it
Pain has taught me of its mechanics.

Mr. Uncertain

Her body is so seductive
Must be the color of her skin
It could be ‘cause she’s foreign
Must be something about her being in her teenage years.

I guess you must be a very tired man
After all the work you’ve done trying to get noticed
Serving your heart with both hands
There’s something sad about your heedless presence.

Do you need a ride somewhere?
Do you want me to call someone for you?
Middle-aged, and here you’re wandering
Don’t you think that your wife is missing you?

Her smile is so embracing
Must be the shape of her lips
It could be ‘cause she’s amicable
Must be something about her never having a father figure.

You must be a very confused individual
To be around places like this, so late in the night
Looking for something that seems misplaced
Is it a crime for someone to want to feel young again?

Do you need to talk about it?
Do you have anyone who can help you out?
Middle-aged, and here you’re wandering
Don’t you think that your family’s worried by now?

Sarah stares at him with her face of disgust
Ruby tries to be understanding and cordial
Mr. Uncertain begins to weep on the sidewalk
But no one comes forward to comfort him.

What are the roads that lead us to this path?
What are the reasons for ending up right here?
Are we sure that is real all that we perceive?
Or has this become another misconception?

Father Sky

Extend your arms, spirit of the sky
Expand your wings and teach me how to fly
I want to soar to the highest of highs
I want to stay right by your side.

Come to my aid, spirit of the wind
Teach me how to lean and how to mend
I want to reach the heavens with thou
I want to be where I’d be allowed.

‘Cause you serenade me with your cathartic eclectic song
You fill my heart when I’m down, sad and I’m all alone
The reverbing tremolo bouncing off the walls of this lounge
Synchronizes perfectly with how my accelerated heart pounds.

Extend to me, oh, spirit of the clouds
Blow of your breeze and send me up above
I want to dash across your linen atmosphere
I want to stay right here tonight.

Respond to my call, spirit of the stars
Teach me how to lead and how to shine
I want to float around your cosmic orbit
Touch all of the natural satellites.

‘Cause you serenade me with your cathartic eclectic song
When my day is somber, you light upon just like the sun
The vibrating staccato bouncing off the walls of this lounge
Synchronizes perfectly with how my syncopated heart pounds.

Oh, Father Sky
All of your children in me lie
They sway me from one to the other side
And then they sway my being back inside
With their uplifting heterogeneous lullaby
So beautiful, that it makes me cry.

‘Cause they serenade me with your cathartic eclectic song
When I’m wandering, your embrace makes me feel like home
The reverbing tremolo bouncing off the walls of this lounge
Synchronizes perfectly with how my accelerated heart pounds

It won’t be long ‘til you reach me
It won’t be long ‘til we’ve become one.

Under The Sun

Sexualize me in the way only you can
I want to be sexy in your sight, in your eyes
So treat me like the thing you want to treat me like
A broken heart can go both ways even when only one is playing.

You think you are so smart, with that snickering face
I just wanted to kiss you so I could give you of my disease
The more you want me, the more I hold you in my strings
And though it sickens me, I need to prove myself that I’m able to do this.

Why would anybody set the bar so low?
If I was just a little more matured then, I’d have approached things differently
And more than why, you might wonder how?
How is it possible for one to love oneself through the filter of manipulating perplexities?

Sexualize me in your heart and in your mind
I want to be sexy when I come around and you inside
So hold me tight, like I’m the control you don’t want to lose
A broken spell can either undo this bubble I was in, or trap you too.

You think you’re so valuable, like a treasure chest
I just wanted to take a peek into your chasm and spit on it
The more you want me, the more you disgust me, but
If I’m to win over this game that you think I’m falling in, I must push further.

Why would anybody set the bar so low?
If I was just a little more conscious then, I’d have confronted things differently
And to wonder what might’ve done now?
How is it possible for one to love oneself through the filter of bending up the perpendicular?

There’s a bridge between my heart and my body
I should’ve never kept my feelings under closed doors
To understand there’s a connection within my own spirit
It is something that I never really thought of before.

Why would anybody set the bar so low?
If I was a little more empathetic of myself and of others,
Oh, I would’ve done so many things so differently
And though all this got me to the place I am right now
Is it impossible for one to love oneself through the filter of bending bullets aimed for the heart, and for the soul…
Oh, no, to give onto others the pain you withhold
It is so unfair, cause when one is young and full of all of these hormones
Should one really be held countable of such things done?
‘Cause life is like a coin, it’s two sided…
So what is really hiding under the sun?

Bohemian Gypsy

Red is here for you baby
Red is here for you boy
Whenever blue doesn’t want to
You can run under my sheets.

I don’t think she suspects anything
When you say “I’m going down to the bar”
All just to see me at stage singing
“How I wish for one day to become a star.”

I can watch you from here daydreaming
Hoping that you take me down to your car
You can bring me home, anytime, darling
But it can only be compacted disc or digital.

Scarlet is here for you honey
Scarlet is here for you boy
Whenever blue is too busy to
You can chase behind these skirts.

I don’t think she even notices
When you leave and start up your car
All just to see me at stage singing
“How I wish to get to distances so far.”

I can watch you from here staring, leering
Hoping that you take me down to your place
You can bring me home, anytime, darling
But it can only be in form of a wave or a cloud space.

Yes, honey, I’ll play along
I’d even “meow” for you
By the end of this song
You’ll be barking for me.

So as long as this album keeps spinning
Baby I will be yours for the taking
But as soon as this long play skips
You’ll find out that there are more than a few hiccups.

Baby, how are you gonna break this bread for her, honey?
Baby, how are you gonna tell her that you’ve found something else?
She’ll leave you with no pride, no house, no shame and no money
Before you realize that this bohemian gypsy have just cast you a spell.

I don’t know what the future holds but one thing is for sure I’ll keep on writing. This one is from Amanda White

Archipelago

Category and distance
Those are the rules of being polite
I’ve never met anybody
Quite as honest, as harsh as you.

You shine like a star
You are burning
You’re hot like lava
And I’m melting.

This is building a bridge
To places I’ve never wanted to go in me
I know we wanted to turn our islands
Into a sweet paradise, into a big archipelago.

But you’re ticking on like a time bomb
And I’m the putting up the hours
There’s no switch to turn the senses off
So the sweet is turning sour.

Residues of an apparent lifetime
Like ghosts of an abandoned habitat
We could’ve been so kind
But instead we only brought the bad.

You shined like a star
You were burning
You were hot like lava
Until you melted in.

And the house we were edifying
Didn’t have a strong foundation to withstand it
And now it’s time to close down that door
And in all sadness, leave you right behind it.

Cause you came like a match reaching me
And I’m a jasmine scented fuel tank
And with your fire, I burned and burned good
So now I cannot allow myself to keep on corroding.

So it’s time for our souls to take sail
As our hearts, hopes and dreams to sink
I’m now deciding for our winnings and fails
And you can think whatever you wish to think

But its time…
It’s time to be formal
It’s time to be strangers
Back to gaps and silence bits
Back to feeling somehow unfit.

Time will help me forget about all the wounds
Time will help me forget all about you
Time will only tell if we will remain friends
Or if inside my pain I’ll whisper “screw you.”
