In Honor of Veterans Day 2016

November 11th, 2016 No comments

Tired strangers in a broken land
Watching to the west, together we stand
An oddly quiet line, drawn out in sand
Where the world we know, will go insane

Harbor closely now, all our memories
Always hold them fast against raging seas
Somewhere far afield, clocks are counting down
To the blinding fury of our coming storm

Think of me tonight, 
Dream of us as morning light
Finds me here tomorrow
Wishing I were home

It’s now or never there’s nowhere in between
Fighting in this desert hell and coming home again
It’s now or never, there’s no time in between
Dying here in no man’s land and holding you again

Wary avengers, fear the falling dark
And cradle quiet thoughts worlds apart

Remember us tonight
Pray for us as morning light
Cracks the dry horizon
To find us gone

It’s now or never there’s nowhere in between
Fighting in this desert hell and coming home again
It’s now or never, there’s no time in between
Dying here in no man’s land and holding you again

Project Mojo – Centerline Lyrics

June 24th, 2016 No comments

JetBlue jumping off runway nine
Climbing east on the last red eye
One mind’s crossed, another dreams
But nothing’s ever as it seems

Lightning spikes the midnight sky
A heartland pierced with a hundred lies
Thunder feared but never heard
Our feelings tossed in a gale of words

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Airbus floats into a misty dawn
A final approach to a coming down
Boston Harbor blooms into view
Three thousand miles away from you.

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Project Mojo – Kerosene Lyrics

May 13th, 2016 No comments
Freight trains howl like diesel dogs
Running the night, chasing the dawn
A meteor scar across a matchbox sky
Lucifer’s strike lights lovers afire
Turbine screams and contrail dreams
Playing with sparks and kerosene
 /
Rocket rides and jet hot breath
Gravity draws our melting sweat
Like wax and wick we slowly burn
The galaxy’s dark consumes our star
Turbine screams and contrail dreams
Playing with sparks and kerosene
 /
Fevered winds storm my heart
Dream debris and splintered thoughts
Are tinder for your flintlock eyes
Passions die in arson’s fire
Turbine screams and contrail dreams
Playing with sparks and kerosene

here to stay

hell to pay

wish me away

bright vaults

mute birds

flutter aimless

against Miami’s fire

— RINGS DAWN —

“Hello?”

souls to sell

seasons fell

beside a shell

“Can’t be filled?

Until the first?”

or but time’s spite

spit into the sea

among the anenomes’

balleting fingers fine

finality sting

“I’m helpless. Not

in a position

to influence……but—”

— REGARDS FROM ABROAD —

— THE CHAPEL STANDS —

— THE POPE LIVES ON —

“Your loss?”

always won

another rung

replay the fun

of two before one

against Miami’s fire

“I’m sorry.

I just can’t help you.”
