"Learn To Live" May 4th, 2003

I remember when I was happy
when that was enough
Before North committed suicide
and heart follwed out of grief
Going mad over lost independence
a slave to fear and security
Thoughts of all the things I've fought for
stolen away
Stars glimmer, sun blazes
Streetlight fire,
Catching glimpses of a tired, cynical face
Creator of art, passion, and soul
my muse, my captor, my believer in me
I remember when I was impulsive
when living was enough
but money comes into the picture
and people "grow" and when we call that maturity
Before words were a weapon and before I shot myself
Going mad over lost confidence
a slave to denial
And I've gotten awfully good at this,
keeping the truth from myself
We could run and we could walk,
or we could drive and we'd be happy.
Crushing through the air,
sleeping under the sun
and making love with the stars
And I could learn to lose
and you could learn to live.
