No One Left Out



No One Left Out


Always looking back
Could it be home or just another trap
So many stops along the way
Coast to coast in a flowing sway
Seasons come and go, the hardest
When leaves fall through the air bringing sadness

Watching time go by, think
The wonders missed, so don’t blink
Leaving on a… jet plane
Blazen off a sweet maryjane
City sounds all around
Feel the vibe come up from the ground
Lonely stranger in a new town
Fearless street walker with a frown
Bumming cigarettes and coins
Cons on the prowl, hookers grabbing loins

Patios die when chairs stacked high
No one buys when there’s no 9 to 5
Money breeds from money in hand
Share the wealth from corporate-land
Revive the dignity of humanity
Save the earth from imminent catastrophe
Change the laws to equal all
Stop these wars that yield but a fall

The story of Adam and Eve is just a story
It was meant to portray Eden, a gift of glory
To be a decent human being
Embracing the possibility of being
Man, woman and creatures throughout
Heaven could be earth, if no one left out

Above La Lunas’ Glow

Above La Luna’s Glow


Above la Luna’s glow
Eyes cast beyond stars
Darkness consumes
All, of a lonesome heart
Wingless blackbird
Stranded on earth
Rooted to ground
Misery found

Above la Luna’s glow
A beacon pulls
Connecting soul and mind
Sucking the energy dry
Eyes shaded black like coal
But shines with a glow
Bright as the moon
An onyx one

Above la Luna’s glow
Waits, a far away home
Ferryman journeys
Collecting passengers
Scarred with the mark
A ticket to ride
Galaxy’s past
Light years away

Above la Luna’s glow
Fades in, new dawn
Witness, the rising sun
Still, planet earth
Counting the minutes
Ticking and tocks
Passing of time
Lost, lost, still lost

Above la Luna’s glow
Returns the yearning pull
Glides the razors edge
A mark left by a previous scar
The ferryman nods
Opens the door
Taking a soul
To a world unknown

Above la Luna’s glow
One will never know
What lies beyond the known
In death, dreams may come true
To close the eyes
For the very last time
A silence grows
As the final breath blows

Unholy Chalice 


There was no word to describe the first breath taken
For it was pure, without sin, the air filling in
The taste of paradise was all they knew
No right or wrong, just living free
Temptation lured a heart of want
How could it be, to be tempted like that
To want more than what paradise has given
A single bite that tears the fabric of life
The swallow of knowledge to inherit the earth
And all that it has to create a path of destruction


Disobedience, the first of many
Skulls started stacking up, murder with malice
A new church sprung from the darkest depths
It had no name, until fire lit it up and everyone yelled, Hell!
The flames burned away the character lines on faces
Those that made unique in creed, colour and races
Here, where bone becomes stone faceless
The sky never seen, stars and moon forgotten
Cradled and huddled, spun in circles
A pedestal holds the Unholy Chalice


A monument of time, a collectors collection
Designing a temple that would hold the spirit
Of the damned and lost who gave up on life
Filling the cup, with blood, drawn by a knife
Slashing, piercing, controlling the pain
Fuelled by the dark from inside the mind
Depression is found hiding
Past, present and future, hurting
There is no heaven, no hell
The end comes with the final bell
