the Rabbles/Family Strange   Leave a comment

A lifetime slips by/Untapped potential
No one knows why/Or what’s essential
Taking place/Too big to all embrace

Touched by the hand/Of many spirits
Led on our way/and always nearest
Memories of joy/Of little girls and boys

Family strange/and I’m a stranger
No way to relate/this fear or anger
On our own/Blown from a dandelion

We’re just a seed/Chosen and planted
Sprouted and grown/Not understanded
All that much/At once as years go by

Do you really want to know/Just how the music goes?
No good reason why/Still I’ll clarify
No matter near you are/Transmissions from afar
Through the folds of time/Set in zig zag lines
There’s a hurt you can’t disguise/A sorrow ‘hind your eyes
No way round the wide/So over we climb

The past is through/it’s no longer you/just a remnant in your mind
Look around and breath/living a daydream
Searching for a trace/for a place to make your stand/On shaky land

And we try so desperately/To make everything complete
Sew up every seam/Seems unraveling
The only way to know/Is when the credits role
and the outtro music plays at the end of our days

Song two from the Rabbles 2012 lp How We Roll written and sung by Marina.

Hey where did you run to when you ran to rolling down the road/And hey where’d you find out from you found out from everything you know/And who, who let the cat out?/And who, who let the cat out?/Everybody’s talking ’bout where to go/When the shit went down used to be Mexico. (Second verse same as the first)

the Rabbles/It   4 comments

Too late to matter and too early to tell/Either way, we wish you well/Too this or that to possibly be “it” and that look in your eye/when dreams die/sliding by

Just a fraction of the satisfaction will do for me/easy/Do unto yourself may your heart beat true to keep on do what you love too/How we roll

I blame you and you blame me/round we go/black hole/The idea’s never let up/Why should I speak when you know?/Know the answer/Tell no lies

The day drips away/vanished in plain sight/On the edge of the divide as day it turns into/night….
Blame you and you blame me and you…..

We live this life and we play our parts and round we go/back start/This ain’t no race and there ain’t no prize when all you want to survive/without fear/engineer/love is clear/ending near

Rubbing two sticks together/Cuz it’s now or maybe never/Can’t hardly wait until forever/Not too smart but maybe clever
You want to live a life of style/A fuzzy warm coat of denial/Settle for nothing less than total/Pull every string at your disposal

Free? Or so you’re told/That kind of seeing’s with your eyes closed
Is this the life/You wanted?/No
You’re getting high on the placebo/Situated in your comfort zone/Locked onscreen in your mind control/I try to reach you but you’re not at home

The advertisement on the TV screen/Depicts a life for me that’s so serene/They found a cure for my unhappiness/They figured out why I’m a nervous wreck

What did you expect?/Is this the leash that leads you by the kneck
If it’s not this/Than maybe next/Sense of security is circumspect
Hope you want to reach/An echo chamber of your core beliefs
Look before you leap/Into the deep end of your apathy

Not at home
