The Love Idea

Written about the False Flag event 911
Dedicated to my memory of Katie Viemeister
Grinnell Class of 1998

Everything is named;
All styles and everything
We put into a box.
Every study has a name; this style suck, end;
The pleasures on the inside mind, body, bank.
Now when you go out looking
I’ll tell you what you’ll find;
The bullshit train, the trashcans full.
You’ll hear all the voices, all the noisy teachers,
No one teaches Truth.

So what you going to do?
Gonna be a better man,
Gonna be a kinder friend.
It’s like the rebel said –
What would be your will
If you could own the world?

Now if we lived in public everyone could learn.
We could watch the sacred puppets try to be the men.
Personal crusader spiders went out weaving,
Spiders weaving Christ. The players at the turnstyle
Trade suicide for brawn; a name is on the can.

So what you going to do?
Gonna be a better man,
Gonna be a kinder friend.
It’s like the rebel said –
What would be your will
If you could own the world?

SOLO

And words like line and line like song.
You must know the price, that choosing is the life.
Ask for simple pieces and hope for better ones;
Get lost in Babylon until you find the love.
Saluting to the tribe, grumpy men with wives,
I ride a bike.

So what you going to do?
gonna be a better man
gonna be a kinder friend
It’s like the rebels said –
What would be your will
If you could own the world?

That’s the Love Idea, ye-ah,
That’s the Love Idea.

Remembering

Why’d you have look so sad girl?
You’ve got a Chad girl.
I ain’t got nobody.
Now I feel 🙁

Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

A man buries sorrow
In his heart for what he loves.
He hopes that it flowers –
That it grows into peace.

Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

Call him the Prince of Peace;
Call him Melchizedek.
King and priest of Salem –
Yeah, he’s the one.

Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

I don’t feel justified,
I don’t feel right.
I did what I had to
To survive.

Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

Remembering
Remembering
Remembering
Remembering

You and your daddy
Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
You and your daddy
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

Why’d you have look so sad girl?
You’ve got a Chad girl.
I ain’t got nobody.
Why’d I have to see?

Sing along to the song I wrote for love…
Sing along to the song I wrote for you.

Your Heart Should be Breaking

see this? want that. see chris, want cat.
blister, callous; bourbon, atlas
if you have heart, it should be breaking

you know nothing, you see bunting
you wish holding, broken, cunning
if you have heart, it should be breaking

i say again, i sing fortune
mischief soldier, jesus princess
if you have heart, it should be breaking

love lost on one, alley darkened
walking so cold, warning forewarned
if you have heart, it should be breaking

boring slowly, empty hallway
upon dragon, leave the old one
if you have heart, it should be breaking

words can listen, on for distance
timeless, sinless, what the love is
if you have heart, it should be breaking

new york city, sprawling suburbs
pittsburgh PA, urban splendor
if you have heart, it should be breaking

return sender, return fender
bless the children, bless the weekend
if you have heart, it should be breaking

walk the tightrope, walk the wisdom
down the railroad, to your prison
if you have heart, it should be breaking

Carnivore

At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
Says she wants a weatherman
But I am a storm

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you
I wish I never knew

At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
Temperate or tropical
She is a carnivore

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you
I wish I never knew

At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
At 60th and Lexington
That’s where my baby stays
I see everything
A panopticon

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you

How beautiful
Your shadow
I loved you
I wish I never knew

Lovers for Life

There you go man, there is your prize
You fell from the sky onto me.

I have the Earth now, you have my bride.
You fell from the sky onto me.

So I said to the sparrow, come take me now,
Lord take me now.
I sat on the hill and I cried.

I can’t make you love me,
You either do or you don’t.
I can’t make you love me.

Pend Oreille

Highway 95.
4 by 4 is on.
The biggest lake, mama, in Idaho.

Don’t want to say it wrong.
Your waters quietly sun-bleach
the sunken trees and submarines.

Yet I dare not say your name –
Pend Oreille, Pend Oreille

Of you I said I’m fond –
Before I moved out West.
A bird of death now drawn forever on your breast.

I look into your eyes –
The bottom of my steps;
I cannot catch my breath, I cannot say it back.

Yet I dare not say her name –
Pend Oreille, Pend Oreille

I said goodbye to Sam
Gone back to Oklohell.
Montana on my mind – shooting ne’er-do-wells.

Pend Oreille
I ask your name.
In waves of gravity
My body falls away,
My body falls away.

yet I dare not say your name
Pend Oreille, Pend Oreille

One Foot in the Universe


Bumpy road to write upon,
Highway stretches on and on;
All the clouds that show the rain;
At the side of the road, a blood stain.
Broken yellow line for passing;
Concrete highway everlasting;

Red light, taillight, line of cars;
Road a mess of cracks and tar;
Oh the sound of falling water;
On the road to see my father.

Sometimes you get by,
Sometimes you can buy,
Somehow you get by

SOLO

We stripped the world of earth and wood;
We cut the rock, we cut the lathe;
You take the bad, you take the good;
You take them both and there you have.

Sometimes you get by,
Sometimes you can buy,
Somehow you get by

One foot in the universe,
One foot, one;
One foot in the universe.

Moon With a View

I got a place I live on the moon
Don’t have to chill with any you fools;
Grow my own crops in special made pods;
I got sanctioned to grow my plantation from God.

I like it here, it looks like it may be
getting crowded down there.
I like it here, it looks like it may be
getting crowded down there.

Just me and my wifey, the little boy’s fixed;
No ethics to ponder when there ain’t any kicks.
Big as the sky, you’re waving me down;
I’m out on the moon putting seeds in the ground.

Give it all, give it all to the third world;
Looks like it may be crowded down there.
Give it all, give it all to the third world;
Looks like it may be crowded down there.

Two thousand one martians are short;
Little boy blue genetics cold sore.
Sentenced to die drowning in hate;
It’s just me here and you’re on the moon.

Oceans will rise, activists limp;
Born overboard, born in the end.
Sentenced to die drowning in hate;
It’s just me here and you’re on the moon.

Keep my luggage in a crater, dude
