WE ARE THE STRANGE ONES     by The Repressions

We are the strange ones
The people you heard about
You’d rather not acknowledge us
Time for a turnabout
We are the strange ones
The weird weirdos who do things you think only a few weird weirdos do
Those people who must live very far away
The ones who make you roll your eyes all day
That think and act and look that way
You think we’re just a few… But there’s a slew
We’re here to recruit
Tell your children time to change… We’ll add them to our flock of strange
When you see the sides of issues and life
Hexagons and circles squaring off
The gears in your weird crank open I’m hopin’
See it from above
The mass acceptance is the crazed
People lounging in a maze… In a blanket haze… It lasts for days… Soaking up the rays
Of being a happy cog
Who buys products that shine… And thinks celebrity’s fine
And gets their body all sick on the processed slime
And thinks it’s funny to say “bacon LOL”
This is a hell
We are the strange ones
So come on kids paint the strange one’s spackle
Shake off your shackle don’t give your demographic to cruel and needy greed
Don’t let them feed steer them to their knees
Until we rearrange let’s force the change make their savage selfishness seem so strange
We are the strange ones
Here to repossess the mess
Think of the animals… Think of the planet full
Think of your brothers…Think of some others
Or we’ll smother you with our strangeness
Strange is not a splashin’ jacket… It’s not a hundred tattoos
It’s how you give and how you amend
And all the places you refuse to spend
And all the madness you refuse to accept
It’s not well kept
But it’s not inept
We are the strange ones
Trying hard to be full of love
Trying not to buy things made by slaves
Trying not to sell things that scratch our souls
Trying hard to breathe while we accept we’re not in control
It’s a strange way to live… Strange trying to give
Giving facts, reason, kindness, love
Giving gifts without the wrapping… But they’re still napping
We are the strange ones
You think we’re strange to care… That’s the saddest tear
But we’ll still care from way out there we’re more than a prayer we’ll always care
We are the strange ones… We are the strange ones… We are the strange ones
You think we’re just a few… But there’s a slew
We’re here to recruit

To the After

TO THE AFTER (GLOW)   

To the after go, to the later show
Find a further on and on and on you’ll search the snow
In the after shine, shylight’s yours and mine
Glitter gives its time and finally becomes the fine
At the after fall, waltzing at the ball
We’ll dress our daring doll and fall in for our curtain call
To the after go, where we’ll long last know
Here we land and crow allegro in our audio
Want to rest a while, miled my last hard smile
Need to know if there’s a stop to all this starting trial
Where’d the after go, It was here I know
Saw it showing me my place to face the last ten rows
Searcher souls seek out the snappy ending,
Pacing prayersfor the rest that’s pending
Back to order when there’s no one to give the order
Only we can camp here for a style and build it while
We are looking for what’s after
Places found and glossed, Homebound lines are crossed
The dross of being lost is tossed upon the powder moss
Keep on leaping on, steeping each pale dawn
Brewing bliss by making lists of what I had to pawn
After’s all I know, Now is tomorrow
The future’s appropos of plateau shadows to outgrow
Still for waiting still, waiting to be still, these silver stalactites greeting growls to me
Then I feel your brush, in the purple cave waving after waves you gave… to me
They’ll keep me flowing in my knowing we can flourish out of rocks
Planting while I walk, dancing after shock
Build a new world on the asphalt where the fields will flock
Normal’s over now, we can thrive somehow
Giving up our after-ever happy after vows
When the smoke won’t clear, you should know I’m here
Loving you and all for after-ever-thousand years
Beauty will be found, sad souls sing that sound
Turning nocturnes into preludes that can now resound
In the new hello, in the after show
We’ll hold each other after, after we’ll begin to glow

Allow (2)

ALLOW

The brightest shine
Now I find it blinds
No no
Never mine

Dragon flies too high
Chase is waste that I can’t see
This piece of me
Will never be

How to go now- Allow
Don’t want to be so mired- Allow
Bury or set free desire
How to go now
Allow allow allow

Smack that painstick in its face
You can’t pray your day away
This piece of me
Can’t be

How to go now- Allow
Don’t want to be so mired- Allow
Bury or set free desire
How to go now
Allow allow allow

I had to make it mine
It’s so confined
It’s part of time
I can’t break up with me
I just break down
I had to make it mine
It’s so confined
It’s part of time
It’s part of time
Break up with me
I just break down I just break down I just break down

How to go now- Allow
I don’t want to be so mired- Allow
Bury or set free desire
How to go now
Allow allow allow

Allow Allow Allow Allow
Allow Break up with me I just break down
Break down Allow
Break down Allow
Break down I just break down I just break down I just break down I just break down

 

QUIET SOLITUDE

Orange
Time passing
As I move here by your side
I’m standing stalwart
Through the shifting light

Big gleam
On the side of a building
Many windows flash goodnight
Clear eyed, knowing where I am
Back before the time where I decided how to live

And in this time of openness, and strife you bring
A quiet solitude to my
Love for you

FROM THE BLUE GREEN SEA

From the Blue Green Sea
We have to fall we had to fall
From color crystal parapets
I did not want to touch the rock I did not want to lose my rest

Go down, no
No place for breath too dark too wild can’t catch my depth

Feels like we’re always diving
Never knowing how to rise to glide to swim
The sun breaks somewhere
Do we ever get there

From the Blue Green Sea
We have to fall we had to fall
I saw your light I saw your color
I thought I saw I thought I saw

Tonight I plume flume down
Seeking singing for your hue

We come back for these colors
This is the loudest wild to see
Surge and ripple diving in the dry
I caught the dark and felt the wave
Whirl and swell in a swirl seashell

In the Blue Green Sea
We have to fall we had to fall
I thought I saw I thought I saw you
I thought i saw I thought I saw
We have to fall we had to fall
I thought I saw I thought I saw
I thought I saw I thought I saw you
I thought I saw you seeing me

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE BOOKSTORE

Whatever happened to the bookstore
Why did they ever shut the door?
People don’t want to read anymore
Or was it that way before?
Now I only check the headline
As if there was a deadline
To know the least of anything
I need to quiet down and think

Whatever happened to the bookstore
Is this the new way to be
I’m always looking at my TV phone
And I forgot how to see
Now I cannot shoot the messenger
Because the message isn’t real
It’s just a picture on my TV phone
I’ll never know how it feels

You’ve got to
Lift your head up Lift your head up Lift your head up Lift your head up now
You think you’re social when you’re all alone
Whatever happened to humanity
Type the missive to your TV phone
Is it society or batteries

You’ve got to
Lift your head up lift your head up lift your head up lift your head up now!
You’ve got to
Lift your head up Lift your head up Lift your head up Lift your head up now
Whatever happened to my singing soul
How did we ever lose the poetry
I’m gonna blow up all the TV phones
And you can find me at the library
