"When He Left"

When he left,
I was 10 years old.
when he left,
he absolutely changed my world.

When he left,
my little hart was broken in two.
I didn’t know that,
the pain inside would never go.

When he left,
she started drinking.
When he left,
bringing home different men all the time.

When he left,
she told me they were just her good friends.
And now I understand
she couldn’t sleep alone at night.

When he left,
he cannot be defended.
When he left,
the hurting was open-ended.

When he left,
my mother broke my brother, he got stoned.
I lost my tongue,
so torn was I between them both.

When she died,
he was closed-hand
When she died,
he cried the tears of a man.

When she died,
my little heart was broken in three.

But I knew by then,
the pain inside would allways be.

So here I am,
here I stay,
here I am,
here I stand.

When he left,
when she died,
huuuuuu.

Childhood memories never lie.
Childhood memories never die.

My life history
ever I.

Lyrics by Rachel Morrison*

*Does anybody know anything about her? Is she still making music? What a pity, I can’t find anything in the world wide web about her?

"Heavy Cross"

Oooh oooh ooh hooo
Oooh oooh ooh oooh
Oooh oooh ooh hooo
Hooo oooh ooh hooo

It’s a cruel cruel world
To face on your own
A heavy cross
To carry along
The lights are on
But everyone’s gone
And it’s cruel

It’s a funny way
To make ends meet
When the lights are out
On every street
It feels alright
But never complete
Without joy

I checked you
If it’s already been done
Undo it
It takes two
It’s up to me and you
To prove it

On the rainy nights
Even the coldest days
You’re moments ago
But seconds away
The principle of nature
It’s true but
It’s a cruel world

Oooh ooh oooh ooh hooo
Oooh ooh oooh ooh hooo
Oooh ooh oooh ooh hooo
Oh hoo woah

We can play it safe
Or play it cool
Follow the leader
Or make up all the rules
Whatever you want
The choice is yours
So choose

I checked you
If it’s already been done
Undo it
It takes two
And it’s up to me and you
To prove it

Ah ah ah eh aye aye
Oh eh oh oh
Yeah oh oh

Ah ah ah eh ah aye
Oh oh oh
Yeah oh
Yeah oh
Yeah oh

I trust you
It’s already been done
Undo it
It takes two
It’s up to me and you
To prove it

Ah ah aye
Oh hoo woah
Yeah eh

Ah ah ah ah aye
Oh-hoo woah
Yeah oh
Yeah eh
Yeah oh

I checked you
If it’s already been done
Undo it
It takes two
And it’s up to me and you
To prove it

Ah ah ah ah aye
Oh-hoo woh
Yeah oh oh

Ah ah aye
Oh-hoo woh
Yeah oh
Yeah eh
Yeah oh

I trust you

"Searching"

2 am in my hostel bed,
my eyes them red,
my belly aint fed,
I got butter but I aint got bread
and I’m smoking on my last cigarette.

I aint got creds I can’t make calls,
got no papers I got no jewels.
Got debts up to my eyeballs who made these rules,
it’s a catch 22.

Christmas soon come and I got no funds
but what’s Christmas if you aint at mums.
What I’m spose to do sit here
and wait for this little JSA.
No blasted way,
I’m a call G and get a food on conceit
or use my giro and by a 16th,
now that’s small time but I got to make p’s,
I’m so hungry man I just gotta eat and 2 a certain degree,
I’m intrigued by these streets,
they say misery loves company
and I’m so comfy I could fall asleep
but I can’t do that.
I’m surrounded by cats,
filthy cats sitting in steps with cat size rats.
Yep it’s a fact I’m truly lost now,
will I end up where I can’t be found.

When life hits you with issues,
makes you wanna cry and wet tissues,
wondering who’s really with you,
what you gonna do,
when it gets a dramatic,
and its over the top like bad acting,
Sinking ship and you’re the captain,
what you gonna do

All this abusing becoming amusing,
the harsh reality becoming alluring,
The life I’m choosing won’t stop moving
and I’m refusing any kind of curing.
Cause see right now this papers moving
and to be honest this papers ruling.
If God say’s it’s the demon I believe him,
cause what I’m doing for him you could call appalling.
But there no such things as half way crook,
so I pay cash and got my seat book,
As i approach the peer i got no fear,
Men women and especially gays.

I’m getting more lost by the day,
the deeper I go the harder to find my way,
I know the blair witch I seen her yesterday,
she collapsed naked on the bed with a needle in her crotches
And the baby sniffles as he watches, but that aint nothing new.
He’s always sniffling,
always got a cold,
yea that’s what crack’l do,
Peek a boo, I seen you,
doing what your people’s don’t know you do,
But neither does mind and right now I’m not sure I mind
cause right now I don’t get my mind.

When life hits you with issues,
makes you wanna cry and wet tissues,
wondering who’s really with you,
what you gonna do,
when it gets all dramatic,
and its over the top like bad acting,
sinking ship and you’re the captain,
what you gonna do

What you gonna do when things,
Get on top just like a swing
And you tired of arguing,
saying the same things.
What you gonna do when things,
Get on top just like a swing
And you tired of arguing,
saying the same things,

Searching searching
I just been searching searching

"Complain Department"

Me oh my you thought you had something strong
Me oh my it turned out that you were wrong
Me oh my you your luck seems to be no more
Frightened to get up, fallen to the floor
Me oh my you say what you’re going through
Funny you forgot ‘cause that’s the same thing from you

If you wanna complain
If you wanna complain
I’m not the complaint department
If you wanna complain

Me oh my you thought you had something strong
Me oh my it turned out that you were wrong
(If you wanna complain)
Me oh my you your luck seems to be no more
(If you wanna complain)
Frightened to get up, fallen to the floor

If you wanna complain
I’m not the complaint department

"Daddy"

He’s out your system yeah it took you a while
You got your family back and you got your smile
And you promised your sister that you’d never go back again

But friends keep telling you what he did last night
How many girls he kissed how many he liked
And you try to remember that there’s no way you could ever be friends

But now you’re
You’re looking like you really like him like him
And now you’re feeling like you miss him miss him
You’re speaking like you really love him love him
And now you’re dancing like you need him need him

Put it in your pocket don’t tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

He kissed you on the lips and opened your eyes
You had to catch your breath got such a surprise
And you always forgot how it feels to live in his lies

He pulled you closer said he’ll never let go
You couldn’t trust him but you never said no
In that moment he made you forgot how it feels when he’s gone

But now you’re
You’re looking like you really like him like him
And now you’re feeling like you miss him miss him
You’re speaking like you really love him love him
And now you’re dancing like you need him need him

Put it in your pocket don’t tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

Put it in your pocket don’t tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

"Thank you"

How about getting off of these antibiotics
How about stopping eating when I’m filled up
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How about me not blaming you for everything
How about me enjoying the moment for once
How about how good it feels to finally forgive you
How about grieving it all one at a time

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How about no longer being masochistic
How about remembering your divinity
How about unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How about not equating death with stopping

"Army Of Me"

Stand up
You’ve got to manage
I won’t sympathize
Anymore

And if you complain once more
You’lll meet an army of me

You’re alright
There’s nothing wrong
Self sufficience please!
And get to work

And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me

You’re on your own now
We won’t save you
Your rescue squad
Is too eshausted

And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me

"Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole"

Poetry is no place for a heart that’s a whore
And I’m young & I’m strong
But I feel old & tired
Overfired

And I’ve been poked & stoked
It’s all smoke, there’s no more fire
Only desire
For you, whoever you are
For you, whoever you are

You say my time here has been some sort of joke
That I’ve been messing around
Some sort of incubating period
For when I really come around
I’m cracking up
And you have no idea

No idea how it feels to be on your own
In your own home
with the fucking phone
And the mother of gloom
In your bedroom
Standing over your head
With her hand in your head
With her hand in your head

I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I’m all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth
To do everything in truth

Oh I wish I wish I wish I was born a man
So I could learn how to stand up for myself
Like those guys with guitars
I’ve been watching in bars
Who’ve been stamping their feet to a different beat
To a different beat
To a different beat

I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I’m all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth
To do everything in truth

You bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody…

I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I’m all right for you
For you, whoever you are
For you, whoever you are
For you, whoever you are
