Gemini Pain

They are ancient tomes;
Moon and water,
Push and pull,
Yin and yang,
Harmony and discord.

Which bustle and bend within the spirit of the Gemini
Whom all know;
Every mind is a city
And we thirst to reside there;
In all of them, In all of you.
Our behaviour the balance of your mind,
We sway our hands dangerously holding the scales of your sanity,
Effervesce and fix.

You’ll know us in the crowds, by our eyes
Wicked side smile and insipid side step,
Narrowly avoiding what would destroy us-
After feeling the threatening tremble of it’s power,
How we wouldn’t have it any other way,
Pain and pleasure.

Addicted to the taste of our trauma,
We obsess over the identities of secrets,
We speak in whispers and reveal them but in a tongue you won’t understand
Plume and harden.

It’s being made of glass, with a dark past
It’s honey warm eyes, with a cold unbeating heart,
Of speaking code, the yes behind the no,
Of delivering soul, at a cost of everything you know
Hold and dislocate.

The Gemini, must survive in duality;
In constant confliction,
A mind unremittingly broken,
A mind relentlessly constructing.
Disintegrate and redintegrate.

Shred Up

Oh, keep on calling
I left a trail but as a warning
Oh, it’s dawn here
The moon is crimson and I’m torn thin

I chew on Jasmine, I do it all the time
Obey fury, it costs nothing to lie
Burn your bunches fuck your bridges we’re all next to die

I feel an avalanche sizing up a shift
I feel a thunderstorm between my finger tips
I’m bolting faster than I can re-trip
And I’ve a feeling it’ll all unzip

Seizing on my seismic surrender shrift

I’m riffin’ on it like I’m on my wrists,
I’m rippin’ on it even with my fists
The stinging slits like a kiss
And my palms are sliced to fuckin’ fits
No stitches will fix

Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shredda, Shredda, Shredda
Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shredda, Shredda, Shredda

Oh, keep on calling,
I left a trail, but as a warning
Oh, it’s dawn here
The moon is crimson my wrists are torn thin

I razored my bone wings off my back yeah I did that
I hunted doves in the snow in Alaska
I died in my wedding tux and then brought it back
I lit up a cathedral as a first attack

I’ve got a line or two I think you’d miss
I’ve got a habit that I can’t desist
I’ve got a wound, it needs lips
And I’m a ravager on a rift

Seizing on my seismic surrender shrift

I’m riffin’ on it like I’m on my wrists,
I’m rippin’ on it even with my fists
The stinging slits like a kiss
And my palms are sliced to fuckin’ fits
No stitches will fix

Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shredda, Shredda, Shredda
Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shredda, Shredda, Shredda

(Instrumental)

Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shh-Shredda, Shredda, Shredda
Get-Get-Get-Get-Get-Get up, Get up, Get up

You and I

You and I, have been best friends, forever
Could write a book, more than a song about you
You and I have done everything, together
From climbing trees, and loosing teeth, I’ve had you

You and I, hand in hand, whenever
Our smiles in sync, hearts a-link,
Me and you

You and I, I

You and I,

You and I, I

You and I

You and I, a bond that could not dissever
And matching tattoos, hobbies transfuse with you
You and I, share the pain, share the pressure
From broken bones to broken hearts, I’ve had you

Sixteen, stiff on the scene we laughed hard
High on rooftops and low come the crash drops,
Us two

You and I,

You and I, I

You and I,

You and I, I

You and I, searching ships till forever
Can’t do it solo, wish I could bring you back home
You and I, tumbling through fields, forever
I feel so alone, when we die where do we go?

Where did  you go?
