LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #89: “The Time Has Come”. Here is a new song which I just completed today. I don’t need to say anything about it, for the time has indeed come. The lyrics speak for themselves. I hope you find them interesting and encouraging. Read on, and here they are:Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #88: “Metaverse”. Here’s a new song, for which I completed the lyrics yesterday and the melody today. The so-called Metaverse is a virtual universe, which, according to its social media promoters, is kinda-like the next stage in transhumanist “evolution”. 🙄 Frankly, I think that the metaverse is already here, in that so many folks are living their lives virtually rather than realistically and are being sucked into an A.I. existence. And that’s what this song addresses. Here are the lyrics:
Behind that smiling profile
lie a thousand broken dreams;
and the myth you have created
masks the part of you that screams.
But your avatar’s inviting
all those men to want you so;
while the girls find you empowering
and your followers just grow.
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #87. “Blood in the Dew”. This song woke me up in the middle of the night last night, begging to be written. There it was. 4 verses of lyrics, the refrain, and the melody. So I wrote them down, then added two more verses today. It is a song for our time and it speaks for itself. I hope it resonates. Here are the lyrics:Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING ROOM VIDEO #86. “Songs are Poems with Wings”, just written yesterday. It’s about where the best songs come from and how (so they’ll never dry up). It’s also really one big Metaphor. 😉 Just me and my guitar. (Needs a band really). I hope it encourages you 💝 Here are the lyrics:
When all the songs that write themselves
have by you all been writ —
& you’re thinking “Should I throw my pen
into the sea and quit?” —
just stand upon some golden sand
from rocks of ancient times,
and feel how wind and water work
and then will come your rhymes.
Double-vacksed or triple-vacksed,
quadruple-vacksed or more —
they’ve got your body and your soul;
they’ve fooled you, that’s for sure.
If I were you, I wouldn’t brag
about that little prick.
Those companies that gave it you
just love to keep folks sick.
EACH YEAR, FOR MANY YEARS, I’ve added more verses to a carol I’m continuously writing, entitled “Another Tasteless Kitschmas”. This year, it has increased by 25% and now has 30 verses. (See below). This is the only Xmas card you’ll get from me! Although, on the surface, it looks somewhat tongue-in-cheek… on another level, it is deadly serious. I hope it brings you some seasonal thoughtfulness. Love to you from me.
Recently I noticed something
happening in the streets:
A guy was on a ladder
using acrobatic feats.
I wondered if this was some kind
of urban culture craze.
But then I saw him hanging up
some Christmas light clichés.
FROM birth to death we’re taught things wrong
as if they all were right.
So now I’ve made this little song
to shed some needed light.
For everything that’s done to you
is done to make you fit
into a world that’s fake, untrue,
to which you must submit.
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #82, “I’ve Been Such a Fool (and for so long)”. As the song says: “How come we all get wise and only learn to love not long before the time has come to go?” But maybe that is the idea. Here are the full lyrics:Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #81: “No More June-Moon-Spoon”. This new song is my response (in a love song!) to a message I have received more than once, saying “How come you don’t write love songs anymore?” So here is a new true-love song. I hope you find it uplifting. The lyrics are below:Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #80: “Letter to a Selfie”. I see so many sad and desperate selfies from women on social media begging for attention or validation. But the purely physical attributes that they portray is NOT what I REALLY want to see. This is a song about a man who is completely disinterested in the superficial selfies that he sees day in and day out on social media and who wants to see the inner beauty of a real woman somehow communicated. Present me instead with something which reveals the oceanic nature of your soul. Here are the full lyrics:Read the rest of this entry »
