about

This a collection of little songlings (and a few larger songlings) that I like but won't be turning into anything substantial or polished, relatively speaking.

They go as far back as my pre-departure from Chicago (I left the Windy City in May 2015, followed by a brief visit to Mount Royal, and then spent the latter half of 2015 in the Holy Land, after which I returned to my hometown in the Garden State and journeyed on to the Big Apple) and as far forward as today, January 7th, 2017, a.k.a. one-seven-one seven, but are presented in non-chronological order.

It's been weird.

Love and prosperity,
Justin

Track Name: bubble pop
I don't know what my life will be
'cause I don't know what I believe
Track Name: let me go
balancing
bread
on your head
wed
on a beach
teach
how to speak
speak

if I know what to say
will you understand
if I put it that way
will you take my hand

freelancing
means
free to seek
cheap
ways to live
give
me your eyes

if I know what to say
will you be my friend
if I learn to convey
will you be my end

if I put it that way
will you close the gap
if I see you this day
will you draw a map

let me go
Track Name: sick flick
If I overdo it with that stuff,
I will dry my face right off.
Wheezing Ed loams about.
Scary Girl is moving out!

A truck with a face!
Your purple base!
Outer space!
I’m in last place.

All the weirdoes going south,
I guess I am one of them now.
I should’ve left long ago,
but I had nowhere else to go!

A dumb refrain!
Your glowing stain!
Memory lane!
is bittersweet pain.

Reconnected, not resurrected.
Your visage is a mirage.
My tissues are infected.
I won’t be fooled by your sabotage.

You wave your hand,
but your eyes make me sore.
Your drunken tan
is vomiting on my floor.

Hefty jeans!
Stupid dreams!
Forgiving gleams!
The whole world screams.
Track Name: Yom Kippur 2016
I didn't know, I was just a kid
He swerved toward us, and then you skid
I'm dizzy from walkin'
Around in circles, my arm was split

My world is insular
Close my eyes to see past my walls
My teeth were pulled, faceless friends
Only voices in my head

You see that tree outside my window?
I pretend it's you
So when I go to bed
You're the last thing I see

My elbows are dry
My hands are grimy slimy
I'm not going to eat
Make me new again, I want to transcend
Better to be alive than dead
Make me new again, I want to transcend
Make me new again, I'm not going to eat
Make me new again, I want to transcend
Track Name: I know you now
I know you now
Track Name: death
and one day the ghostly buildings
will all come a-tumbling down

we will sing of their destruction
at the hands of angry gods

it will be a sight to behold
life will change, we'll all be free

birds will fly around the rubble
we'll become a new species
Track Name: summertime
I'm gettin' out of here in the summertime
gonna spend my summer somewhere nice

The winter's been so long and so cold
I'm gettin' out of here in the summertime

I'm sick of the running around
I'm gettin' out of here in the summertime
Track Name: Jerusalem
I know you and you know me
Track Name: desert
I met the girl of my dreams
And I just let her go
I didn't turn around
I watched her from afar
