If You Ignore the Truth
Hello chickky boom boom
I see you crawling ‘cross the razor blade
Are you looking for that deal?
Are you still trying to get it made?

When you crawled across the floor
of broken diamonds
Did you see
the shining of your star
Did you feel tranquility?

Well, they try to get you wet
Well, they try to make you squeal
Don’t mind if you lose your grip
And let your hand slip off the wheel

Deceit’s a terrible friend
When you finally do embrace it
Despair’s a curious lie
When you finally have to face it

And if you ignore the truth
She will find a way to stand in
front of you

Never pity wrongful doers
They will always pounce upon
you

Don’t panic when the evil comes
And lays its wreaths around you

That picture’s never pretty
When the good they taste defeat
And the sadness of that moment
Always seems to be repeated

Over and over
The blood flows for amusement
evil takes them all away
to torture and abuse them

Pretty little pictures
Taken for an ugly ride

Clever cruelty rules the day
And all the dreams lay dying

And if you ignore the truth
She will find a way to stand in front of you

From the time you were a child
You were fascinated
By the glowing marquee’s glory

And all the famous stories
Never stopped to take a look
At those who’d gone before you
And now it’s much too late
And your soul is just a feast
along his way

Hey hey chicky boom boom
Come sing a song for me
Come ride the horse of truth
Eat from the truthful tree

Come crawl across the floor
of broken diamonds
So you’ll see
If your star is shining
And if you feel tranquility

You’ll see them titillate you
You’ll see how they try to rape you
You’ll see the molders molding to
remake and recreate you

Deceit’s a terrible friend
when you finally do embrace it
Despair’s a curious lie
when you finally have to face it

So if you ignore the truth
She will find a way to stand in front
of you…


41 Cents
Got 41 cents in my pocket
that’s all I got left after you
41 cents in my pocket, babe
but, at least I got my pocket, babe

Got away clean this time
Got a brand new shot
Got away from you
And the slot machine
you call your heart

Your sweet incense still burns
hot in my mind
Kinda blinds me from the
awful truth sometime
That all you wanted was
the jingle of the coins
In my pocket

Got one last pair of blue jeans
One last pair of shoes
One last flask of Whiskey-wine
Gonna try to kill the pain of you

Gotta keep movin on
Move in a new direction
Move away from you
And the pretense that you
called affection

Your sweet innocence was
such a perfect act
You worked me over
till I discovered that
All you wanted was
the jingle of coins
In my pocket

Got one last dream to dream now
One last hope to hang on
One last finger ’round the limb
We’ll, I hope that limb don’t snap now
Climbing up one more time
One hand over the other
Looking for that love sublime
Looking for that perfect love

I know she’s out there
With love inside her heart
We’ll find each other
We’ll never part
When she reaches ’round
She won’t be tryin to get her hands,
Inside my pockets


In The Beginning Of The End
In the beginning of the end
You were dangling by a silken thread
Presenting the ideas so taken
by your head

Dancing ’round the ring
Slipping every punch
Thinking you were winning on points
In the beginning of the end
You did not see there was a starting point

In the beginning of the end
You spoke freely of those famous sayings
Quoting all those wise and wondrous
Fellows and their minds
Skating ‘cross the ice
Thinking things were nice
Never thinking you could fall
on your ass

In the beginning of the end
You did not see the floor was made of glass

At Hollywood and Vine
It is the custom of the fool
To think that he inherits from wise
Declares himself… Celebrates
Before it’s understood that he’s the prize

No knowledge of
What will become
No oracle to tell the terrible truth
That wickedness and all the lies
Will take it all before the day is through

In the beginning of the end
There is no book of secrets
All the tales were told
You were not listening
Righteousness or darkness
Is it love or hate?
Reach out with your tongue and taste it

In the beginning of the end
There’s just one chance
Don’t waste it!


Feel Like Feeling Again
Well, you walked right through the door
And you looked up at the moon
And the moon looked back at you
And you began to swoon

You remembered what it was
To feel in love again
And you walked back through the door
And you took a look again

Well, she was half your age
And a stir went through your soul
No, it wasn’t just her body
That made you lose control

There was a story in her eyes
You knew you understood
And you knew they’d say you couldn’t
But you knew that you could
And you feel like feeling again…

Ohh…ohhhh…Your thunder rolls
Ohh…ohhhh…Your thunder rolls

So many lonely nights
Since heaven came to call
And cut in on your bride
And danced her ‘cross the hall

Took her soul from you
And left you here to mend
Now you feel a sweet sensation
That the past is at the end
And you feel like feeling again

Ohh…ohhhh…Your thunder rolls
Ohh…ohhhh…Your thunder rolls

Now passion’s blood’s revived
Pulse through your veins
You know you want her with you
No questions that remain

Love has found a way
Through the brambles once again
Yes beauty’s hand has found a way to
paint a perfect end…
And you feel like feeling again…


Some Things Never Change
I’ve got footprints in the concrete
Of the sidewalks of my mind
Something in my memory
Something left behind

I can see them when I take a stroll
And walk right through my past
Something left behind me
Something left to last

Some things never change
Some things remain the same

Sleazy two bit bullies
Still rape and kill and steal
Kids with bloated bellies
Still hunger for a meal

I can see them everywhere I go
In every country’s streets
Even in America
Land of sacred freedom

Some things never change
Some things remain the same

The Bible tells a story
Of Noah and his ark
Two by two they marched aboard
To make a brand new start

But even when the earth was gone
And all had been redone
Evil found its way back in
And good’s still on the run
Some things never change
Some things remain the same
It all comes down to basics
Wind and fire and rain
On the path to perfect ecstasy
There’s a path of blistering pain

If you want to make it all the way
and feel the final glory
You’d better learn your lessons well
Learn the basic stories

Cause some things never change
Some things remain the same


The Times They Need A Changing
What more do you need?
There are children being raped
There are children being starved
’round the Horn ’round the Cape

It’s happening here
In your backyard too
You’d better pray harder
There’s still so much to do

Have you looked around lately?
There’s still killers for hire
And blood flows like electrons
Down a telephone wire
Positive charges, negative too
They fight and they clash
Making history anew
And times they need a changing…

Sorry Mr. Dylan
I had to play with your line
I wish I could tell you
that everything was fine
But I’m sorry I can’t
There’s still trouble in the air
I’m still looking for g-d
But the devil he’s everywhere
And the times they need a changing…

Well. the times they need a changing
Critical mass
Some rearranging
The question
Is it all worth saving?
Well, the times they need a changing

It’s such a simple thing
You just open your eyes
It’s been said so many times
That he comes in fine disguises

All that it takes
Is a little good faith
To defeat the defector
From the hand of heaven’s grace
And the times they need a changing

Look at the firestorms
Look at the sky
Look at the children
Waiting to die
It’s not enough to ponder
And write those clever books
By the time you turn around
The virgin is a hooker
And the times
they need a changing

Ravage the poor man
Ravage the beast
Do we need another ark?
To carry us to peace

For sure we don’t need lawyers
To make any new laws
Can’t live by the ones
In the Freedom Eagle’s Claws
And the times they need a changing


Johnny
Why’d you write
all those beautiful songs?
You must have known
your fate all along

He was a kook kook ka kook kook ka
kook kook ka kook kook ka chew
When the bullet took you down
Took the rest of us too

Here and now we go bleary
into the night
Wanting the candle
Wanting the light
That you shown on us all

Why’d you say all those
things that you said?

The Hatter, he just
wanted you dead
He was a kook kook ka kook kook ka
kook kook ka kook kook ka chew
When he looked in the mirror
he could see all was true

Here and now we go bleary
into the night
Wanting the candle
Wanting the light
That you shown on us all

Johnny…Johnny…

Johnny, you wore a coat
of many colors
The world threw you into
the pit of a war
You said:
No no no no no no no no…
Give peace a chance!
But war is still dancing
It’s hideous dance

When the fire hit the ice
There was a melting of their hearts
And the pain they both felt
No longer tore each one apart

Though few understood
The difference of their love
It was followed by the angels
And cooed by the doves…

There’s a man in a wheelchair
Feeding the gulls
Where the hell did he come from?
And the woman over there
Carries the weight of her years
Throws some bread upon the pond

And the man over there
With the silence in his eyes
He can’t see what’s going on
They are there altogether
Never touching each other
No matter how much they want to
Condemned ever not to

Oh…all the lost and lonely people
We’ll never know
where they all come from
Oh… all the lost and lonely people
Lost in the echoes
Ever marching along

There’s a man and his dog
Crossing over the bridge
Is that his only friend?
And the woman with the cat
In the shadows over there
She’s remembering when
And the boy over there
With the question in his eyes
Is there hope for anyone?

They are there all together
Never touching each other
No matter how much they want to
Condemned ever not to…
Oh…


Livin’ In The Twilight
Going round and round
In a circle I’m getting used to
Going up and down
I can feel the change when it’s coming

Sometimes higher than life
Then the devil comes out to greet me
No telling what delight
When I’m livin’ in the twilight

Livin’ in the twilight
Neither here nor over there
Sometimes the lips are real
Sometimes they’re thinner than air

Cross the borderline
Put our chips down on the square
Livin’ in the twilight
Neither here nor over there

Tasted all that life can give
one mortal soul
Felt the sorrow and g-d’s eternal glow
Smelled the perfume of the sweat
of our becoming
Heard the cryin’ of my women’s love
Seen the dying of our children
When I get this way
Never sure I’m coming back
Got no time to waste
But sometimes I gotta slip backwards

Don’t mind the darkness
Don’t mind the thickness of the night
As long as I’m livin’
Even if it’s the twilight


Laugherman
You never know when
It’s gonna happen
The greatest laugh you’ll ever have
When that moment comes
Feel happy from the sadness

Pound your fist on the table
Roll around on the ground
An ache in your belly
From the touch of an angel
The heart and the soul
Of the clown
Takes you to a place
Where pain and pleaser mesh
A place where the poets
Put you to the test

Fulfilled by the nothing
Of the empty space of creation
Sorrow’s transformed
With a roll of your tongue
The audience laughs
The sound of salvation

LaugherMan reach down
and touch your pain
Let the sunshine
pour right through the rain
LaugherMan shed your tears for me
Bare your soul to the crowd
In the hopes that you will please them

Life is full of surprises
Laughs are what we need
Sometimes hard to come by
Everybody bleeds
You’ll always find them
On the path to eternal bliss
Just remember it’s those whose blood we seek most
Provide the laughs to set us free


Joyful Blues
So glad to have these blues
Better than having you around
All that fussin and fightin girl
Your selfishness abounds
and surrounds me
So glad to have these blues
Brings joy into my heart
My heart began to sing
The moment that we parted

Scat a tat tat…………

All of a sudden things were different
Coiled like a snake you squeezed for
Those changes
Almost choked me to death
But I finally caught my breath
Girl, your love was so strong
but I just couldn’t carry on
so glad to have these blues
Better than having you
Girl, you just had to make me choose
Between your love so bad
And these joyful blues…


That’s How I Get
Woke up, it was tomorrow
As far as I can remember
That’s how I get
when I’m thinking ’bout you

Woke up, it was Wednesday
Or possibly Thursday
That’s how I get
when I’m thinking ’bout you

All the love that he has in his heart
Weighs less than the breath
that I take in a moment
Mine, is a mountain of gold

I wish you could see
through my eyes for a moment
I wish that the scales of justice would balance

But sometimes in love
the scales tip against you
sometimes the doors of justice
are closed

I try to get started
But something won’t let me
That’s how I get
when I’m thinking about you

I try to get high
But I just get loaded
That’s how I get when I’m
Thinking about you

I try to get by
But my pack’s overloaded
That’s how I get when I’m
thinking about you


Sometimes It Comes Upon Me
Sometimes it comes upon me
I am an anvil to a hammer
Slamming me down
Not giving an inch
Steel vs Steel
At war in my head
So intensely
Sometimes it comes upon me
My flesh feels like food
for a snub nose 38
Exploding me open
With a force unexpected
Ripping and making me
hate my own fate
So immensely

Sometimes I feel
like a tree in a storm
Pushing back the winds of Hell
Sometimes I wonder why
it just wouldn’t
Be better to break

Sometimes my soul feels
like sand on a beach
Eroding away with the swell
Sometimes I wonder why
he just don’t reach
Down and take me………………

Sometimes it comes upon me
It’s the fuel that feeds on the fire
Drawing it down
Bleeding the heat
In the furnace of love
the downfall descends from desire

Sometimes it comes upon me
Life a great fish hooked on a line
With one desperate run
One last heave of his soul
He struggles to break from the line

The taste of the bait
The taste of the blood
Too much freedom
can mess with your mind

If you ever get down
with it can’t happen to you?
Here’s a hook in your jaw
to remind you…

Sometimes
it comes upon me…


After The Battle
Oh, it’s after the battle
And there’s not much left around
Only the crying babies
And the baying of the hounds
Smoke arises from the fortress
People stare, but at the ground
Oh, it’s after the battle
And the meek are lost
and waiting to be found

Oh, it’s after the battle
And all those left they seek the light
Hope’s been gone for much too long
We’ll be needing something stronger
here tonight
Bones arising from the desert
Alert the coming of he king
Oh, it’s after the battle
And in the distance
you can hear the angels sing
In the distance
you can hear the angels sing

Oh, Noah found favor
in the eyes of the Lord
And his fate was sealed
with a pitch
He was sheltered
from the torrents and
the flood of his tears
And the evil got washed
from the rich

Oh, it’s after the battle
the trumpet’s sounding
pierces through the night
Light breaks through the darkness
Lives again from depths
they do arise

Tyranny no more
only freedom
It is truth?
Or only disguise?
Only after the battle
Will we finally know
the truth from all the lies
Yes, it’s after the battle
And we’ll finally know
the truth from all the lies!


Lots Of Ways To Blaze A Trail
Lots of ways to blaze a trail
Money roads to roam
Lots of stars up in the sky
Only one can get you home

An adventure comes
An adventure goes
Into the mist it rises

Your spice route to the orient
Can’t shield you from the lies
Your spice route to the orient
Can’t shield you from the lies

A northwest passing
A trade wind blowing
It’s plain as the nose on your face
Keep one eye looking back home for luck
Or be gone without a trace………….

A stack darkness is piled on high
A workman of the light
Digs for reasons only some will find
Long into the night

He digs and digs and digs and digs
Into the mountain’s peak

Be careful what you wish for now
Sometimes you get what you seek
Be careful what you wish for now
Sometimes you get what you seek

A northwest passing
A trade wind blowing
It’s plain as the nose on your face
Keep one eye looking back home for luck
Or be gone without a trace….

Lots of ways to tell a tale
Many versions of the truth
Lots of stories you will be told
Before you leave your youth

People come and people go
On their way to roam

Be careful how you blaze your trail
’cause you blaze that trail alone
be careful how you blaze that trail alone…
Lots of ways to blaze a trail…

End to End (The S.B. Reeves Outfit – 2011)


In The Very End
Everybody needs a main squeeze
Everybody needs a friend
Nobody wants to be a loner
In the very end

ah ah ah… ah ah ah…
ah ah ah… ah ah ah ah…

We’ll, I once knew a sailor
Who had a pretty girlfriend
Treated her like treasure
Kept her wrapped up in crimson bows

They’d go out upon the water
Make love til their bottoms
Were burned by the sun
Lay all night in the darkness
In each other’s arms

ah ah ah… ah ah ah…
ah ah ah… ah ah ah ah…

Well I once knew a stranger
Wore diamond in a stickpin
Had a smile so bright out shown all
The stars in the sky

He’d go out among the people
Throw coins to the children everywhere that he’d go
All the people swore he flew in the wind
At least that’s the tale everyone knows

ah ah ah… ah ah ah…
ah ah ah… ah ah ah ah…

Come pretty baby put your arms around me
My skin is hungry for your touch
Come on, it’s so easy to love
All you have to do
Is show a little trust

No one wants to get caught with their back against the wall
Nobody tryin to cop a little feel of romance
Nobody wants to be alone
Nobody wants to be alone
Nobody wants to be alone at the end of the dance

Everybody needs a main squeeze
Everybody needs a friend
Nobody wants to be a loner in the very end


Amanda
In from the cold I walked into the warmth of your soul
A light in the night
I looked into your eyes
Now I know

There’s a fire that’s burning
So deep and so bright in your heart
An explosion of love
That is waiting for just the right spark

Oh, Amanda
You know they’ll say we’re crazy
And maybe we are
But Amanda
Who are they to question love?
When they can’t see
The stars in our eyes
When they can’t see
The stars in our eyes

Come let’s take flight
And run free and as fast as we can
Away form conventions
That crush rocks of love into sand

We’ve got nothing but future
And tickets for the ride of our lives
Come with me Amanda
Let’s jump into the heat of the fire!


Please Take My Love
I got a back seat baby
I got two arms for you
Come on with me
Let the love inside of you live

I got some tickets
To a show called love at first sight
Take my hand
They’re just about to dim the lights

Stories get told every day
How lovers get lost upon their ways
Please take my love
I promise to stay
Forever…

I got an open heart
And a soul that’s filled with the fire
Take a leap of faith
And jump into the heat of the flames

Got a solemn promise
I know I’m ready to make
In my past it was wrong
But with you I know that it’s so right

My bags are packed
I’m ready to go
Get your things together
Let’s jump into this ride

and if you’ll take my hand
I promise to stand
as a guardian at the gates of our love
and if you’ll take a chance
I know our romance will take flight
and with both of our souls tonight

Let’s take the chance
That the stars are standin’ in line
To guide new lovers
Homeward into the light


What Did Daddy Do?
Focus on the love
Not on your sorrow

Take that bag of sadness
out to the curb

I know he hurt you
But you gotta face tomorrow

Someday you will see
to feel this way was quite absurd

He told you a story
He told you a lie

Said he’d always be here
right here by your side

Told you he’d love
Through madness, any grief or pain

And now it’s you alone
just holdin on to what you feel is sane

What did daddy do?
he told you a story
What did daddy do?
he told you a lie
What did daddy do?
Told you a story
left you all alone and crying

Focus on your joy
Not on the disappointments
Collect the love you have
Bring it forth for the ride

I know you’re left behind
And can’t imagine
How he could leave you
Leave you alone and cryin

How could he leave you? Leave you alone
How could he leave you alone
How could he leave you alone
Leave you alone
All alone and crying


Olla Podrida
Oh Olla Podrida
When I look in your eyes
I see the depth of your sorrow
I see the walls of your denial

I see your dreams on the floor
You don’t want anymore

I see the pain you inflict on yourself in someone else’s name

Oh Olla Podrida
I see your dwindling fire
I see your crumbing nature
The loss of all desire

I see your flame burning out
And all of your doubts

I see the pain you inflict on yourself in someone else’s name

I know it’s unfair to feel the loss of your glow
The sun used to shine so brightly on you

And I know that he’s gone
And I know he was wrong

But please don’t take it out on yourself

Oh Olla Podrida
There is still time left for you
I know you feel all alone
In a pot of simmering stew

But there’s a time and a place
Just run your own race

No need to keep hurting yourself in someone else’s name

He’s a paper tiger
Don’t give him so much power
To take you down the way that he has

You can start all over
Rise above the pain
This breech of faith
Can be your moment of truth


Sometimes I Hate Being In Love
I was suppose to wake up this morning
But I guess I failed to wake up

It’s 3 o’clock and the Sun is bright
I hope that I’ve slept enough

Sometimes……….. I hate being in love

One step forward
Two steps back
Some say that’s how it goes

I have to ask
Will I ever get it right?
Yesterday tomorrow
What about today?
It’s afternoon
What about tonight?

Is patience really a virtue?
When your eyes are filing with clouds
And time is messing with you big time
Creating all of that doubt

Sometimes………..I hate being in love


I Think My Heart Was Broken Tonight
I think my heart was broken tonight
Not really sure
It hasn’t sunk in

Not really sure
Was it fear or fright?
Or a flash in the night

That put me in such a spin
Spin that I’m in

I think my heart was broken tonight
Can’t see straight or find a delight
Or anything bright
To pull me up and out of these blues
That I’m That I’m in

As a rule I have no rules for dealing with this
No matter how many times
I just can’t get it right

No matter what I try
In the end it’s the cleansing light of time
That soothes me in this endless swin

I think my heart was broken tonight
I think I’ll blame you it only seems right

I think my heart was broken tonight


Branded By Your Love
Hey girl
I saw you today
Seems like I felt this way before
So like you to turn away
Like you’ve done so many times before

But I am
Still branded by your love
Still branded by your love
As I wash away the flood of tears
And look on back across the years
I am branded by your love

Hey girl
You make it that way
Never look the truth in the face anymore
so like you to turn away
But now girl
I never wanted you more

Because I’m branded by your love
Still branded by your love
As I wash away the flood of tears
and look back across the years

I’m still branded by your love

Two hearts meet and wonder
What it was that let them beat as one
Two hearts who were lovers
One now beats in silence
The other to a distant drum

Hey now I just want to say
Thanks a lot for walking away once more
Cause if you stayed another day
We’d only find that it just wouldn’t work anymore


One Big Nothing
You’ve got pictures of mountains
But you’ve never climbed one
Read lots of poems
But you never rhymed one

Know all the hit songs
But you’ve never sung one
Eat fancy food at parties
But don’t cook for your young ones

Oh… you’re one big nothing…..

You’ve got the perfect fit body
that don’t provide comfort
Closet full of shoes
But somehow they don’t fit

Your story’s so soulless
Can’t believe that I bought it
Wish someone had told me
But who would have thought it

Oh… you’re one big nothing

Blades of emotion skate across my skin
Love’s a secret event
created from nothing
First time I saw you
I just didn’t see it

You said it was fate
But baby you tried to cheat it

So rough on your friends
You’re a smooth operator

Put off for now
what you can do to later
Get massages everyday
But create lots of tension

Oh baby
Did I forget to mention?

……oh…. you’re one big nothing


River Up Ahead
Well my clothes are worn
And I could use a little sleep
My threadbare mind been wandering all alone
For much too long

Well I could use a sip of wine
I’m just a little lost sheep
Carrying these heavy bricks
But I can’t seem to toss them anymore

Well the preacher man told me that salvation lies within
That if I prayed real hard
forgiveness would fine me
That a river would appear and reach out
Cleanse away all my sins

I can see the ricer up ahead
Don’t think I can cross it

Well, I’m still a young man
I can see for miles and miles
Even though mine eyes
Have not seen the glory

I love the woman of my youth
I got one girl child
And a little bit of pride
But that ain’t the end of the story

Well the soldier man told that salvation
Lies in the courage of your heart
That if you fight real hard
The good life will find you
That a river would appear and reach out
wash away those memories

I can see the river ahead
don’t think I can cross it

Well there’s a river I hear tell
Let’s a man cross if he’s holy
There’s a river
Flows right from the glory

There’s a river reaches out
To all those who will listen

I can see the river up ahead
Don’t think I can cross it


End Of It All
Pictures are flying
off of the wall
Shards of glass
are falling like rain
Created by Pain

Bitterness pours it’s salt in the wound
the sting of revenge
it’s so insane
Oh, what a shame
But let me start at the end of it all
Not at the rise
But here at the fall
You hard cooked my heart
you couldn’t let in end over easy, could you darlin?
you had to jump from the pan
right into the flame
Screaming and yelling
anger and fear
the rules of the game
the rules never change
shattered dreams lie on the floor
turning memories of love
into icy remains
Two hearts meet, they meet over glances
spin the wheel, take their risks
take their chances
two hearts lost in the clouds of the blindness of love
their need to be wanted
crying out loud
But let me start at the end of it all
Not at the rise
But here at the fall
You hard cooked my heart
You couldn’t let it end over easy, could you darlin?
You had to jump from the pan
right into the flame


Time To Move On
There’s nothing you can do
When it’s time to move on
Take a step onto the path
To where you really belong

Cut down all the fences
Take off the masks that you’ve worn

There’s nothing you can do
When it’s time to move on

There’s nothing you can say
When your angel comes your way
Says, come on with me boy
There ain’t no reason left to stay

There’s plenty more to do
And many of prayers left to pray
There’s nothing you an say
When your angel comes you way

And when you think back on the races that you’ve run
And you think that there were more you should have won

Just remember there were few who chose to be there
And you were one
And you made a difference

No there ain’t no way that your soul can be denied
After all the laughs that you’ve laughed
And all the tears that you’ve cried

You kept on marching forwards
Over hills of false pride
Now there ain’t no way that your soul can be denied
