Try (2009)(New Social Voyeurs)

Try – Penny Lane, Your Mother Should Know, and When I’m 64. Paul’s attempts at Tin Pan Alley? My attempt to reclaim my childhood? I was a little kid, simple happiness. Danced with grandma. “Try” starts this tale, says where we’ve been, peace, love, all that, death, destruction, all that, new again, all that. Sometimes the simple virtues are a good place to start, continue and end. I really thought we had lost it all. “Try” to see the irony of history.

Go (Part 1 - New Social Voyeurs)

Go - It’s hard to know whether you should stick something out, see it through, or whether it’s a lost cause. Growing up, I knew for a long time that I had to get out, I had to get away. Everything I did was geared towards that, get out of school, borrow money, get away to college, survive on chili dogs. My parents stuck it out together, I’m not sure they should have. I’ve stuck with my marriage through some really tough times, and I’m glad I have. Other people I have know have gone, in different ways. Some committed suicide. Some split up with their longtime partners. Some fled abuse. Some stayed and worked it out. It’s hard to know when its right to go. Sometimes I think we don’t fight hard enough to work things out, especially when it comes to checking out of this world. Sometimes when you have to get away from abuse, there is no support. I really feel the presence of abandoned people, out there in the highway underpasses, fleeing bad situations, or making bad situations worse. I wish them love and luck.


I went down to the river, but it was much too deep.
I didn’t try to keep you, from your eternal sleep.
Someone sent me a message, but the sender was unknown.
Giving me one more reason, one more chance to go.
Go, do you have to Go?
Leave this world behind, run away and hide?
Go, do you have to Go?
Move on from this place, Find the human race, and Go.
Dear mother, you kept me safe from harm.
Dear sister, you did all that you could.
Dear father, you didn’t care at all.
Dear brother, would you have killed me if you could?
Go, do you have to Go?
Leave this world behind, run away and hide?
Go, do you have to Go?
Move on from this place, find the human race, and Go.
We ran as fast as we could, but we couldn’t get away.
I fell down on my knees, and I began to pray.
You pointed to the setting sun, said we should not despair.
You built your castles in the sand, but the sea didn’t seem to care
Go, do you have to Go?
Run away from this, this godforsaken mess.
Go, do you have to Go?
And leave this wreck you’ve made,
Instead you’ve got to stay and not Go.
Instead you’ve got to stay and not Go.
Instead you’ve got to stay and not Go.

Conflict Diamonds - Everything we own is derived from a theft from someone. The robber barons of 100 years ago are now the elite of the Ivy League. We settled this country by killing its original inhabitants and taking their land. But our ancestors were fleeing oppression, rape, and killing as well. The bottom line is nobody’s pure, and everyone should be reaching for a higher standard. So this is not to excuse those who fall down by saying they can’t be criticized, just a reminder for all of us to remember we’re all morally culpable and all have responsibility to help each other.

Sins of the fathers visited on the children,
Slaughter of the innocents by pride and prejudice.
This is the territory of human suffering, citadel of human luxury.
Where did you get yours from? Who did you take it from?
Taken at the end of a gun, makes you think twice.
We’re all Conflict Diamonds and we’ve got blood money.
Ain’t nobody pure, that’s for sure.
Settle the differences, live in peace.
Red is the color of blood, red is the color of everyone’s heart.
Pale is the color of death, pale is the color of the rider.
We’re all Conflict Diamonds and we’ve got blood money.
Ain’t nobody pure, that’s for sure.
Inside of all of us, there’s a negotiation
Between the better angels of our nature and our demons,
Looking down over everything, pitying but not uncaring,
There’s a slow burn into the dust.
We’re all Conflict Diamonds and we’ve got blood money.
Ain’t nobody pure, that’s for sure.

Mother’s Lullaby - I can’t get away from my real life story. I suffered real pain from illness my whole childhood. No pity party here, but the pain was real so it must have affected me somehow. She helped me get through it.

Nixzmary Brown - Helpless little girl. Alone and desperate. Beaten to death in America, her screams heard by neighbors. Happens everyday, here and around the world. Hell is here on earth.

Temporary World

Disappear (website)(New Social Voyeurs) (at the end of the world)
Disappear – Some of us like to retreat to safety, to the bottle, to pity, to unreliable so-called friends, even self-mutilation (psychologically or physically). We think we’re being stoic, heroic. The victim can sometimes be the narcissist.

Fly (New Social Voyeurs) (forbidden love)

After the Song Is Over - She’s gone. I miss her. I wanted to let her know I will see her again. Why was I more worried about her on the other side than me here in this world. I can’t let go.
