Without God on Our Side

My name it means nothing
My race it means less
The country I live in
Is called the U.S.
I was roughed up and taught there
Strange laws to abide
And that the land that I live in
Has lost God from its side

The history books tell it
They tell it so well
The trade ships shored
The Africans enslaved
With manifest destiny
The Indians were slayed
Their armies marched
And their opponents died
The country was dumb then
Without God on its side

The Russian – American
Was had its day
Vietnam too
Was soon laid to waste
The names of the victims
I’ve sought to memorize
Chemicals in their bodies
With God on their side

Desert Storm, too boys
It closed our fate
Their reasons for fighting
Only of greed and to hate
I will never accept it
I dissent with pride
For you remember the dead
Without God on their side

The invasion of Islam
Has still to find its end
They freed the kurds
And tried to give them land
A murdered three hundred thousand
Gassed outside with pride
And now with autonomy
The kurds now too
Have God on their side

They’ve said to hate Muslims
Throughout my whole life
‘Said their oil we needed
A pseudo democracy’s shattered
And the innocent die
If another war starts
It’ll end the human race
And they won’t stop their pace
With God on their side

Now we’ve got weapons
Of nuclear death
If fire them we must
It’ll be our last breath
One push of a button
The means to an end
The whole world will know then
If we’ve got God on our side

Through many witching hour
My mind has succumbed
A New World Order
I’ve come to confess
I won’t think for you
You’ll have to decide
To hang the politicians
Or fight amongst them
With God on your side

So as I lay breathing
In this chemical hell
The thoughts that I’m thinking
I’ve now gotten to tell
The world is sinking
I hope the bombs don’t fall
To those who survive
You’ll have God on your side

So hear what I ask you
Hear it so well
Stand up and fight
With no violence in sight
Hold firm and stand strong
Together we all belong
For if God’s on our side
Well stop us from war

Dear Mother,

           Another year gone and past. We’re another year older, and to you I’m only growing closer. Things you’ve taught me, a lifetime they will last. I know it probably seems like I’m growing up too fast. I feel like it was just yesterday, you were teaching me what words to say. With your permission, out with friends I would play. I remember everytime I would wake up after surgery, right there you’d be, sitting right beside me. You’re the greatest person I’ve ever met. I’m so lucky you are my mother. I love you with every breath I make.

With eternal love,
Your son,


           I have no doubt of my feelings toward you. If I could shout, your name to the heavens, I’d scream at eleven. No decibel can measure, the pleasure to be by your side.
           Your touch is the slide of an electric guitar, howling under the moon, hoping to see you again soon. You’re a deadly flower so beautifully in bloom. Taken my heart from its somber tomb. Your kiss of death has soothed my wounds.
           Tu eres la Morena de mi corazon. So many things I can’t wait for you to be shown. If I had a cover, by now it’d be long gone. God damn these feelings are strong. Turkish coffee accompanied by a spliff of Moroccan hashish strong.
            I can see me and you, growing on a farm. A patch of wisdom, a field of love, a marsh of leftwing ideals, an Orchard of culture, and a lake of fire, where we burn our fears.
           So come near my dear. By my side, your fears will soon dissappear. I could be a queer, but for you I’m straight as a steer. Meat I promise to stand clear. So the future idren can persevere.


I feel the Eclipse on my fingertips
A full moon illuminated through hits
Living to abide, it’s time to quit
Smoking these sticks dipped in tar pits
Forever realizing how it goes so quick
Uncanny thoughts in my mind
Make it hard to forget
Battered like a Vietnam Vet
Somethings become delicate
Cause I don’t want to get sick
Sick of it all, I’m scared I might fall
That shit fucking hurts
Open wounds covered in dirt
I think I might regurgIquake
If my body starts to break
Somethings changed
I no longer feel deranged
Astray or strange, no more distain
I’ve begun to overcome the pain
Quite simple and plain
One woman’s trash is another woman’s Treasure, somehow forbidden pleasure
Buried in words as a way to measure
The temperature in a heart
Sparks the attack
Cardiac effected by the smacks
This time it needs to relax
Pushed to the maxImumovable
I couldn’t find a lower decimal
Wicked tricks I’ve aquired in my Reticule, I’ve got a helluva view
What I see, it’s starting to resemble
You in your heavenly ensemble.

I want to get away.
No I need to get away.
Hey Life!
You’re getting in the way.
I’m too tired,
I don’t want to play today.
But damn, I need to get paid.
So a couple hours of shut eye,
Then I roll my dice for the next day.
Then along comes a man.
He may be old,
But I’ll listen to what he has to say.
Progressive ideals held firm,
Since back in the day.
A light house,
Illuminating gorillas in the mist.
Maybe it’ll be nice out,
After the fights out.
Today’s a big day.
So go out and vote I say.

Strained gains.

What do you do?
When another makes you feel stupid.
Do you blame it all on cupid,
Or do you sit sad and blue?
Cause I’m tired of being,
Shot down, put down, and dissed.
I wanna be picked up,
Held tight and missed.
Things like that fail to happen.
For the life I’ve set in front of me.
I never asked much,
Just to be shown your feelings.
Through the power of your touch,
I’m loosing my clutch.
I guess I may be a bit much.
But you’ve known that from the cusp.
I’m growing done with trying,
And these strange feelings of crying.
I don’t know what to do,
So I choke on my smoke.
It helps to numb the pain.
Cause when I sit and think about it,
Thoughts get crowded,
Eyes get clouded.
So imma sit right here,
And wait for you to talk about it..


Every time I feel a vibration , I make the motion to search for your mention. All to be let down. I sit with a frown, feeling like a disregarded clown. Far from you in another part of town. I lie and drown how many times must I try to you leaving me unnoticed. Just once I wish to bear witness to your words I’m full effect. Affected and neglected I feel by your regection of my feelings of affection. I try and I try as time goes by Flys by off the grid ever so sly. I fried I tripped I drunk and I stunk. All by your side always trying to abide and decide how to make you happy. The way you get while laughing it’s so distracting. I loose grasp of reality while I’m observing you mentally. Is it really so much to ask for you to show me how you feel about me. Face to face bass to bass. I know if we come together we can make it through any weather. But in order to change the weather, you’ve got to change the climate. And it’s too cold for my liking. You just bail, I feel ready for another jail.
