(Plenty of mistakes here. Oh well. Better luck next time. It’s just a test flight.)

Maybe I Can Catch A Flight…

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

(I think this might be more of a Mondokhan song, but here you go…)

my last flight

running late for a paper plane
jet lag comin back again
superhero of the runaway
saving time i lost today

check my bags
i’m home tonight
im holding on tight
for my last flight

flying kites in a mindstorm
falling back on a cruciform
cut the string and rock and roll
wait for me, im halfway home

sometimes i get so high
i cant come down
sometimes i see you burning on the ground
sometimes i believe, sometimes i forget
I took a ride up on a rainbow
and lost my grip

check my bags
i’m home tonight
im holding on tight
for my last flight

In the symmetric turbulent wake
of a flat paper plate
today a distinguished scientist has made
the discovery of rain
falling on his face

(One of these lines is a throwaway… can you guess which one?)

(For the girls with all the boyfiends. Little Johnny is sitting in the gymnasium, all alone with his guitar, his best friend, the guitar. He doesn’t even have a pick. Sniffle sniffle. Boys don’t cry, they don’t cry.)

Further Down The Road

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Even further down the road I found a broken old mandolin. Or maybe not. Maybe a little sentimental, but it’s a true story as far as it goes, I can see it out my back window. So I just call it like I see it. True story.

Even When the Road Has Gone:
