Existence Proceeds Essence

Reaching back out to you breaking day
Pittsburgh morn stretching to West LA
My morning prayer includes good stuff
Praying for plants, animals and, well, us
There is no greater freedom than to be
A people who choose and act to be free
It's our existence that proceeds essence

Difference Between Dreams & Lies

The Difference Between Dreams & Lies

Difference between dreams and lies
Difference between a flower and a gun
It's identifiable in the eyes
Those of ecstatic innocence
Those of sneaky spies
There is love in dreams
There is hate in lies
Dreams inspire good
Lies make people die

“When Tuesdays Are Saturday”

"When Tuesdays Are Saturday"

Sometimes it locks in place
Like a pod taken you to space

2am headlights turning on now
Mountain fire too high to drown

Cold and wet keep moving on
'Til the breaking light of dawn

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

This river could swallow our whole crew
Better build ourselves a good canoe

Gotta get out sometime and head west
Yet not quite influenced it's really best

Looking to cash in on a promise made
Keep moving along so we all get paid

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹
