Into The Night Of That Old Song We Drum

In the time between lost love and hope

loss by droves resolves itself into whole
holy spirits and tired lies never lie long
into the night of that old song we strum

Knights of harbinger ride on tonight so drunk
tangled up are all worries over tighter trunks
flights to freedom that we ever did redeem
desperate measures were forever for keeps …

Into the night of that old song we strum …
Into the night of that old song we drum …
Into the night of that old song we rung …
Into the night of that old song we lunge …

For it’s hard … to know … just what to do … sometimes
Some rhymes … go off key … some days … go in need
Some ways … we wander back now … beyond, onward
Whatever … were we ever … to be ones … born forward …

So I stand upon this cloud … So I scream so very loud now …
Out with hatred, in with solace … So let’s not let this soul pass …
Let’s live wisely with what we’ve got left, to unravel this mess
Meager not are all treasures of patience for those we so test …

Into the night of that old song we strum …
Into the night of that old song we drum …
Into the night of that old song we rung …
Into the night of that old song we lunge …

Sight is special for those who can tell now well
What wishes were to be remembered or sold
For simple is that solid slug, of fortune’s gold
Swivel will the fell, who never grew to get old …

Plight and plunder, peace and puzzle the same
Sometimes we’re troubled, sometimes to blame
For messing things up or getting it right on game
Despite all that happens now, it’s time to change …

Into the night of that old song we strum …
Into the night of that old song we drum …
Into the night of that old song we rung …
Into the night of that old song we lunge …

And if you were of second doubt … If ever weary of old teary eye
I would not hesitate to lift you up … For by our merits we survive
For you were one of the last who loved … We knew you were one
Of us who were never swayed for second best … Just at your turn …

And if you were one … who let all this nonsense, get you so down
You would be the only one … to be responsible for letting you down
For now and then we’ll come into the pen of predicament’s punishment
But all we sow is all we lose if we but just adjust with the moments …

In the time between lost love and hope
loss by droves resolves itself into whole
holy spirits and tired lies never lie long
into the night of that old song we strum

Knights of harbinger ride on tonight so drunk
tangled up are all worries over tighter trunks
flights to freedom that we ever did redeem
desperate measures were forever for keeps …

Into the night of that old song we strum …
Into the night of that old song we drum …
Into the night of that old song we rung …
Into the night of that old song we lunge …

Against The Darkness

Driving on home tonight, under a full moon now so bright
Right as we were drifting off, we snapped back alive on top
Drifting on out into the universe, between stars so crossed
We might as well be destined to dance despite every loss …

Lost and found, in heaven so bound, are we forever now …
Deliverance and salvation were never enough to forestall how
We all come to the ends of the line by the time we go down
But what remains is the sound of the rain against the shroud …

Against … The Darkness … Do we now go down …
Against … First light alike … Do we come around …
Against … That old cold front … Ever do we drown …
Just in time … To come alive … Before we hit ground …

Riding on into the eye of a storm, under a dull listless sky borne …
Driving across every desert of distress, it’s a wonder ever we kiss
It’s a wonder we love, a wonder from above, ever do we dismiss
Every little regret for just one more chance to live a little bliss …

Bless us not or bless us true hardly counts for what we do …
What we miss and what we caress all come to ties in tune …
For when we lie we show our minds in true equal review …
For renewal of life lies but in every time we arrive at you …

Against … The Darkness … Do we now go down …
Against … First light alike … Do we come around …
Against … That old cold front … Ever do we drown …
Just in time … To come alive … Before we hit ground …

Lighting this drum righting those wrongs everything all at once …
All those old memories all these new dreams of coming undone
Of finding at last those old goals we once cast aside under glass
Too much thinking always led to the leaving of who we were last …

Test us not or test us do whoever really minded was doomed to lose
Best is what we are when arrested by surprise inside our natural rules
Ruse or truth, calm or riot of muse, it all resolves into that baby blue
As we arise unscathed into the skies of those challenges we choose ..
