Curtain Risin’ On a New Age

December 23, 2020

But the enemy I see
Wears a cloak of decency
All nonbelievers and men stealers talkin’ in the name of religion

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
But I’ll know my song well before I start singin’
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

I look at the world, and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake, we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

(I look) Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Never Surrender: Triumph

November 7, 2020

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and [nothing] is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

Out in the streets inspiration comes hard
The joker in the deck keeps handin’ me his card
Smilin’ friendly he takes me in
Then breaks my back in a game I can’t win
Jivin, hustlin, what’s it all about?
Everybody always wants the easy way out
Thirty golden pieces for the Judas kiss
What’s a nice boy doin’ in a place like this?

Never Surrender – keep your dreams alive
Never Surrender – hold your head up high

Modern apathetics, you got plenty of nothing to say
Some are born to follow, some will make their own way
Today you found a hero, tomorrow you’ll forget
You’re lookin’ for convenient truth, you haven’t found it yet
You don’t make commitments, no time for regrets
Easy come and easy go and easy to forget
You don’t ever take responsibility
Don’t you know that part of you is part of me

Never Surrender, it’s easier said than done
But you got to finish what’s already begun
Never, that’s forever, seems like such a long time
But I only got one life to live – It’s gonna be mine

Never Surrender – keep your dreams alive
Never Surrender – hold your head up high
Never Surrender – we cannot be denied
Never Surrender – spread your wings and fly

Isaiah 40:31


I Was Raised In Babylon

October 26, 2020

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

You Light Up My Life (by God)

September 18, 2020

So many nights
I’d sit by my window
Waiting for someone
To sing me his song
So many dreams
I’ve kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark
But now you’ve come along

And you
Light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song

Let It Rain

August 23, 2020

The rain is falling through the mist
Of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away
The bliss that lays around me.

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Now I know the secret;
There is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you,
You’ll surely give it back.

“I said it was going to be playing, and it is.”

The Morning After [by God]

May 16, 2020

There’s got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let’s keep on looking for the light

Oh, can’t you see the morning after?
It’s waiting right outside the storm
Why don’t we cross the bridge together
And find a place that’s safe and warm?

It’s not too late, we should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It’s not too late, not while we’re living
Let’s put our hands out in time

There’s got to be a morning after
We’re moving closer to the shore
I know we’ll be there by tomorrow
And we’ll escape the darkness
We won’t be searching anymore

There’s got to be a morning after
(There’s got to be a morning after)
There’s got to be a morning after

All Along The Watchtower

February 15, 2020

One may have seen (and lived) what was not meant to be spoken of.  Still, through writing, there is another way.  What was pictured, what was sent, what was undergone, was to be of what will be.  Through this, while looking and living forward, what was shared can be shared – as a voice beyond a tongue.


And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it

[They] also knew what was next: a towering wall of water washing over
. . . , cleansing it of all that was evil and impure.


To Bear Witness of That Light

February 8, 2020

A Ready Pen_0001+

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest.  And he said to me, “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

And there will come a time:
“Do you want to eat?  Or, are you willing to die?”

Waiting, in a psalmist sense, may lead to an arrival of bestowment all at once.  Along the way of perseverance, we may also be fulfilled in steps after steps – where the promised gift is an eventual culmination.  From the onset of this spirit, our knowing, our believing, and our faith may withstand any rising mountains – where we, ultimately, realize a lifting beyond each one.

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

January 11, 2020

Of-Timing

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me
What the time was that was on my watch
Yeah …  and I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me
And said her diamond watch had stopped cold dead
And I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people
Trying to beat the clock, oh, no
I just don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know-oh
And I said … yes, I said

(Background:
People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know where to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have time to think past the last one
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around think why)

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all had time enough to die

Everybody’s wondering (I don’t care) I don’t care (About time)
About time (Oh no, no) I don’t care

And your will’s sinking low
Just believe, and you can’t go wrong
In the light, you will find the road

Hey, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold
Yeah, baby, I know how it feels cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul
Oh-baby, I just want to show you what a clear view
It is from every bend in the road

Now listen
Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too.
As you would for me, I would share your load
Let me share your load
Ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can’t go on
In the light, you will find the road

The the winds of change may blow around you
But that will always be so
When love is pain it can devour you, but you are never alone
I will share your load,  I will share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

Everybody needs the light
Ooh, baby.  Everybody, everybody, everybody

Blind to what the world says can never be done
Fight until the end

God and Job

Blake_Job's_Tormentors

Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?  Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me.  Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?  Tell Me, if you have understanding.”  “Hath the rain a father?  Or who hath begotten the drops of dew?  From whose womb comes the ice?  And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth?”  “Who has put wisdom in the mind?  Or who has given understanding to the heart?”  “Does the hawk fly by your wisdom, and spread its wings toward the south?”  Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said: “Shall the one who contends with the almighty correct Him?  He who rebukes God, let him answer it.”

Then Job answered the Lord and said:
“Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer You?  I lay my hand over my mouth.  Once I have spoken, but I will not answer; yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”

Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
“Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me: Would you indeed annul My judgment?  Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?  Have you an arm like God?  Or can you thunder with a voice like His?”  “Who then is able to stand against Me?  Who has proceeded Me, that I should pay him?  Everything under heaven is mine.”

The Job answered the Lord and said:
“I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.  You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’  Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which i did not know.”  “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes see You.  Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

You find that life’s not always what it seems, no no
Then think of a rainbow and I’ll make it come real
Roll me, I’m a never ending wheel
I’ll give you a star
So you know just where you are
Don’t you know that I might be
Your wishing well
Your wishing well
Look in the water, tell me what do you see
Reflections of the love you give to me
Love isn’t money, it’s not something you buy
So let me fill myself with tears you cry, and why?
Time is a never ending journey
Love is a never ending smile
Give me a sign to build a dream on
Dream on…
Yeah, Throw me a penny and I’ll make you a dream
You find that life’s not always what it seems, no no
Love isn’t money, it’s not something you buy
So let me fill myself with tears you cry
I’ll give you a star
So you know just where you are
Someday, some way, you’ll feel the things I say
Dream for a while
Of the things that make you smile
‘Cause you know
Don’t you know
Oh, you know
That I’m your wishing well
Your wishing well
Your wishing well
I wish you well
I’m your wishing well

No One Together

March 26, 2019

Centuries of backward ways, have many left behind us
Who can count the good men gone away
The fruits of all our labors have left us as we started
We’ve come too far to end it in a day
It seems that everything we do is wrong
A one way trip to nowhere all along
Just look around and tell me what you see
Another stupid page of history

[Chorus]
No one together, No one is touching ground
Look at each other, Chaos is all around
Same situation, Nothing is really new
No one together, No one is me and you

Lo! the horn of plenty is bursting at the seam
The harvest of the world will be our prize
We claim to know the secrets, the answers have been found
But how can one fool make another wise
‘Cause nothing’s better than it used to be
To live and die is still a mystery
We take away and we give nothing back
We just consume it all and still we lack

[Chorus]
Each day passes by us so quickly now
You can feel it drawing much closer now
The signs are in the faces of the people in the street
The signs are in the sounds I hear
The voices filled with hate and fear
You can feel it drawing near you now

The multitudes are searching, and wandering in vain
For what they seek cannot be found in men
The truth that lies before us now is plain for all to see
To grow without is not to grow within
For in the promise is a victory
To see the way that everything should be
To feel the joy that we were meant to know
We should have realized so long ago

We’re all together, Harmony will abound
Look at each other, All that was lost is found
New situation if our direction’s true
We’re all together, Everyone is me and you
