    For Janis….


    2009 - 08.03

    For Janis……
    You dug yourself up out of that Black Texas dirt
    And transplanted yourself in San Francisco
    Where you gave new meaning to the Blues.
    Nobody saw you coming.
    And there has been nothing like you since you flew away.
    You spoke to the people, enlightened and freed the girls
    Showing them that they were half of the sky.
    A feminist blues singer that screamed out your truths
    With such a force, what a soul you had.
    Your voice changed us forever
    And forever will your voice ring.
    You were lonely in a way we all could see
    Still that didn’t stop you
    From trying to set them free
    I hear you in the Heavens
    When my mood is Kosmic Blue
    Your like a bird singing
    A long and fate filled tune.

    Out of Control


    2009 - 08.03

    Maybe I’m taking too many chances ‘cause I got a soul
    Baby the way that your dancing is out of control
    Scene is getting hotter , it’s time to be bold.
    Take a good look around and find someone to hold

    Where are you now?

    Gotta’ find you somehow.

    Since you fell into my life and your love took hold
    I made myself some changes ,  came in from the cold
    I bargained with the Devil, he thinks the dice have rolled
    I’ve come to find out all of my dreams have been sold

    Where are you now?

    Gotta’ find you somehow.

    Holding you tight is gonna’ set me free
    I know there is a future for you and me
    You gotta’ calm down,take a look around, what do you see?
    So many people just trying to be free.

    Where are you now?

    Gotta’ find you somehow.

    I could gaze at you for an eternity
    Something inside you reaches out to me
    Loving you has been like a living dream
    We got some kind of love so it seems.

    Where are you now?

    Gotta’ find you somehow.

    Yes, things have changed. I used to care, but things have changed. I think what Bob is saying  here is that society has changed and changed him with it. Bob has more than paid his his dues. He will be long gone before we decyphyer half of what he has said. (SG)

    Fireproof


    2009 - 08.02

    I’ve taken flames of criticism from my friends

    Apparently I don’t know what the hell I’m doing

    I am lost with my disease they claim.

    But I know a little something they will never know.

    And I have walked back through the alley’s of my mind

    Remembering the way it was before this madness gripped me.

    And I will arrive late yet, but at my destination I will be known

    And my chair will await me.
