Ticket to Hell

           He felt a sense of loneliness for a moment, an empty need for something he'd never put into words, and never would. The desolation of the vast country was like a symbolic painting of his own life - the boulders, the dry heat - without another soul as far as he could see.

So Walk Tall

                                It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no time to get cute
                                It's a mad dog's promenade
                                So walk tall, or baby, don't walk at all

A Cold Feeling Back

              If you put your lips to a police badge
              You only get a cold feeling back
              And if you stroke a .38-caliber revolver
              The .38-caliber revolver absolutely doesn't care

Painted from Memory

And so this had to be
Painted from memory
Funny, now i can see
How looks can be deceiving

Focus Can hurt You

      I like to be alone so i can write. But focus can hurt you. I don't want to become some stress casualty in early middle age.
