you say you love me
but you dont know me
very well
and most the stuff i say ive done….well i never did
and all that stuff i denied……
and all the stuff i took
all the money just wasted
all the time being safely reckless
in my bed asleep dreaming it all up
there were no guitars or cars or chicks or dope
there were no nights or days and roads that led on n on
there was only lies
lies that enfold and entwine
where do the lies end and where does the truth begin? you ask
ah yes the lies plural….the truth singular
so many lies but only one truth…is that the truth?
or is it just another lie
gossip gossip laugh laugh
prod prod
moralise
demoralise
you really think i aint across it all and then some
horny dilemmas
sweet paradox
impossible things
thats why you read my words
you must be reading my words
giving me some sort of life
im tired of running through your mind
but watch me
i keep going
oh yes
long may i run
52 but i aint thru
nimble n naive
the knave of blogges
the stealer of time
eloquent tongue tied
elegant scruffy
elephantine tiny
you got no fix on me
elusive
but you always know where to find me
my energy crackles
my words are winged
my hand is so steady
as i complete all the details
those tiny details that make you love me
all those tiny lies
painted on the one great truth
what does this shadow here mean? you ask
nothing
what does this hole here mean?
nothing
what about this gap and this null n void?
nothing nothing nothing
you think you think
i know i know
now i been working at this for five years
five long years
almost everyday ive done something
put my mind into neutral
and ive sussed it all out
and im beginning to see the light
a very distant light to be sure
but there it is
so why why why
waste my time, being
as you can plainly see
time is not a commodity i have in surplus
im coming round the last corner
its all unknown to me from hereon
cant you see im just guessing myself?
who can or will gimme advice out there?
not the troubled brothers
not the dutiful daughters
not the freeked out fiendss
not the manly men or lovely ladies
not the bouncing babies
not the carping critics
not the dead dads
nor the mommy mums
nor the yawning abyss
what do you think i should do?
dont answer that
your evidence is inadmissable
whats in it for me?
and i used to answer myself
time
time is in it for you
now my gauges are saying
youre running out of time
and time to run
and you came out of time
and into time you shall return
but that time will be without me
just like you
you have your relationship with time
i have mine
i have spent my time thinking about time
is that time spent foolishly?
all thought of time is foolish
to possess time ignore time
i am the time being
hell thats just a stupid name i made up
time is oozing out
try and plug that hole
try to find the puncture
ssssssss
its escaping
there goes a whole 2 minutes of your time
as in
your time
the time apportioned to you
by the cosmic all
a slippery being
both of us
time
and
me

    Good morning Fellow Time Travellers,

    I thought time was on our side.

    I thought we had all the time in the world.

    It’s enough to make one go out and get life insurance.

    If we are running out of time, then, in the immortal words of Kevin Rowland-

    ‘Let’s make this precious’

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day

    You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way

    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town

    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain

    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    Stastically speaking you could have another 20 to 30 years left.
    Thats a whole lifetime and you don’t have to go to school again either.
    Unless something cuts it short your not on the last corner yet.
    Of course were all moving through time but is it linear?
    Perhaps all those girls,dope and guitars still exist somewhere in time, Let us hope..

    BY WAY OF EXPLANATION

    Well, I see a shape that looks like me
    Flat and drained of detail
    But elusive and alluring
    Like a whispered secret
    The promise of self discovery

    And so I reach for it
    Right there before my eyes
    But find that its just a shadow I’ve been chasing
    My hands all dirty for the trawling
    And no closer to the substance.

    So I turn to find the source
    To pinpoint the energy, the essence
    And spend my days staring blankly at the sun
    Going blind again
    And still I want to find you

    So now all I have for company
    Are the stains on my retinas
    And a memory of light
    Filthy with failure
    And beaming with the thrill of the futile search

    time is a word created to make us feel guilty about wasting it, or maybe it is imaginary or we’re at standstill like that underground freeway? But our lives are marching on regardless. I like to imagine that everyone who ever existed in the past really didnt, meaning, before we were born, stuck in a timewarp reliving our lives over and over, to make it better, or ?…. Still, you can love someone even if you dont know them.
    Do ya think you could keep that plug in a little longer? dont like to think of time as a physical quantity, tho’ it is, a huge hourglass with the sand running out. I think you’ll be here longer than a lot of us.

    Sk illuminates, enumerates, ruminates, hallucinates, educates, legislates and translates us into another realm beyond The Time Being wherein reprobates can communicate with taste and distate on any given date to impart their inner traits without revealing the size of their body’s waists!

    On another note I loved it when the Dalai Lama met Bindi Irwin’s pet black rat named sandy. It was spiritually dandy !

    i found the truth…..my truth….which for whatever reason, i believe to be a universal truth……but just how egotistical and megalomaniacal does that sound

    when i finally got “it”, i was so excited by “it” that i wanted to tell everybody….or at least the ones i thought would be interested in “it”………but, unfortunately, my excitement came off as pushiness……perhaps they couldn’t believe there was actually a way to suss all this stuff out (life on this spherical torus, that is)

    i discovered there were only a few that really wanted to hear what i was saying and what i’d found…..and those were/are the ones that truly love and care about me

    it seems that unless people find “it” on their own through some personal revelation then they are probably not gonna hear what anybody else is saying about “it”….yeah one may think that somebody else is hearing the words that their saying or writing…… but more than likely their probably just politely listening or reading

    but ya know sometimes i still wanna shout from the tops of the mountains……”here “it” is folks, here’s the answer you’ve been looking for”

    perhaps i’m delusional……although i believe i see things clearly…….i understand that i could be completely wrong about “it” all……..but i doubt it

    when that future transcendant moment in time comes in a few years…….ya know the one……just around the bend off in the horizon

    i’ll be as right as rain and so will you

    It happened again. This time it’s “Beside Yourself”. My dear imaginary friends and all to real foes; tonight I heard “Beside Yourself” for the 5th time. It is reportedly a collection of b-sides, rarities and unreleased tracks from “forget yourself” sessions. Well I will now forget my musical mind’s love affair for the music of Pink Floyd and Radiohead. The former I have loved for thirty years the latter I have loved since 1995. “Beside Yourself” surpasses those rightfully revered bands. How did and do The Church endure and continue to compose and execute such peerlessly nonpareil albums. Forget the bar and fuck abattoirs my “cruelty free” bacon is going somewhere else tonight !

    time is a criminal and a thief. it destoys beauty, and robs innocence. I never met my dad I went to his funeral and saw him in his casket at 39. soon after I saw you with that cool beard strutting in the metropolis video, and ever since that you became a role model and ideal dad icon. you always have the best taste in all matters.i asked the meat v.s. heroin ? and you fucking answered me. i could not beleive that a grand high and mighty bastard like yourself responded to the concept spawned from my mind. I must point out however with all due respect to you that you overlooked the fact that being on h hurts one’s family as well as the individual junkie. are you suggesting it would be better for me and everyone for that matter to give up meat and take up h. not everybody has access to fancy vegy meals, the poor eat what we can, and we are lucky that the anti-christ bush/cheyney lets us still eat the poor animals. ithank the animals that i eat for giving their lives to sustain me. it is awful and sad that animals die to feed us but have you ever studied how american indians pray to the beasts they eat and thank them. maybe you will deign to give me individual attention again. smoke a phat dubie for me, cos in the shit town i live in i have no access to maryjane. yours truely. patrick miller patrick-csa@myway.com pa usa

    Thank you so much for turning me on to Morcheeba- I’ll say a prayer.

    It’s the weekend…had a great time here last night (friday night). FYI, I wasn’t ‘drunk’- I had 1oz of red wine; an ounze is my limit. Tonight I went with a girl friend to some galleries in Sausalito, and then an excellent restaurant in San Fran- time well spent.

    Steve’s blog is a great place to experience intense peace and love. I cherish the time here- it makes me feel content and as beautiful as the goddess of love.

    I’ve just given genx a 2007 Cyber Ford Thunderbird in the color of her eyes to drive- a gift from an American to an Austrailian.

    is this where u live?
    i met u in an
    unguarded moment
    then
    you took
    me to the
    field of mars
    but i was
    too fast for you
    a lifetime ago when you were
    a different man
    still
    it’s no reason
    but for a while i almost
    disappear
    until i feel the
    electric lash
    and now it’s
    already yesterday
    i used to be so easily
    tantalized
    now sometimes life leaves me
    disenchanted
    but not for too long
    constant in opal
    the undying
    spark
    and i insist i know my
    destination
    even if i seem lost in this vast
    metropolis
    and you know
    you’re still beautiful
    even if life’s not always
    easy
    and without trying you are a
    faith healer
    and it’s
    pure chance
    all those moments when life changes

    wrong agin, i’m trying to remind all you wafflers that relevance is key.

    you say you want the truth

    but you can’t handle the truth

    genx is boring

    hellbound heart is a cheater

    brian crumbleford is a nuttr

    matt davison is not normal

    bbon is a snob

    eek is lonely

    about 50% of anonymouses are boring (i don’t normally comment but am over the side -trip stuff into gens childhood and hellbounds endles refernces to her extramarital affirs – i hope your husband reads this!)and there is a lot of rambling crap that is supposed to be poetry

    this is a comments section for commenting on kilbeys blog, not for rabbiting on about yourself or whatever issue you are pushing. i’m a long time church fan who would really enjoy this blog if it was more about music and things to do woth music which i don’t think is too much to ask

    I’m in the Autumn of life now, wondering in my darker moments if it’s like the L.K. said, “your ballroom days are over, night is drawing near, shadows of the evening crawl across the years….trading your hours for a handful of dimes…” The major resentment I have is watching my time being confiscated by The Man which I acquiesce to for a handful of dimes. I signed the contract to exchange time and effort for the money, but I resent the way they waste it on unnecessary crap of no permanent, or often temporary, significance.

    I can never recover one precious, wasted day. I will never sit back and think, “wish I’d spent more time at work.” At least you escaped that, Being. You spent it on things much more worthwhile – and of lasting value. There should be satisfaction in that.

    “Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

    And to lie is to steal, isn’t it?

    i’ve always been
    mystified by time
    such a paradox
    so fast and so slow
    at the same time
    months seem like weeks
    years are flying by
    in a flash

    but when i think
    of a specific time period
    when my daughters
    were babies
    when i was in college
    when i was a kid …
    i’ve lived at least
    4 lifetimes

    decades ago
    i figured out
    one thing …
    carpe diem

    love

    yes I agree Diane
    like cats we are with our 9 lives
    remember that life?
    the one where my 65 vw bug caught on fire
    in the guitar center parking lot?
    or, the life where I was a working one night only at the fruit leather factory
    or aide to the professor emeritus?
    the life as a poet in the dark
    with my brandy?

    Steve,
    I don’t know if I love you per se, but I do love your work, and if someone creates something, isn’t that something by default a part of them? So, perhaps it’s part of you that I love, and that’s fine with me. I suppose I visit here to get to know some other parts of you and see how they compare and contrast to the part I love. I’d much rather have gnarly truth with all its bumps and scrapes and ugliness than pretty lies wrapped up in a satin bow. I do love fiction, but I think it’s much better when it’s based on truth or feels like it could have happened by the intertwining of well-researched historical fact, even when it’s a comedy (e.g., the movie Forest Gump).

    Talking about time. It’s funny someone quoted Albert Einstein, because I believe the perception of time is relative. I recently had a conversation with my dad about time and our perception of it. I almost insulted him by implying that 60 was “really old,” forgetting that he would turn 60 in a month. Cringing, I realized that the reason I still consider 60 old is that even though I’ve recently turned 34, in my mind I’m still 18. His response was, “That’s okay, I still think I’m 45.” Isn’t it funny how each of us has a certain image or idea of ourselves in our minds? What time capsule have you got yourself in, Steve? You mention your age a lot, and it’s almost like you say it so you can get used to the number. Age ain’t nothin’ but a number, Steve. It’s all about how young you feel.

    We also had another conversation, dad and I, about time and how as we grow older, time seems to go by much faster. I remember being 4 years old, and how an hour seemed like an eternity! Now, I’m lucky if I can get anything worthwhile done in an hour. My dad said that time is relative to how many years you’ve lived. A year to a four year old is a quarter of their lifetime. I keep looking forward to 65 thinking, “Wow, I’ve got to do this all over again to get there.”

    Tick tock, I’ve rambled on enough,

    “No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.”

    Look at your body of work, the new albums coming, the ones not yet created, painted or realized. Very few eyes consume that scene in their wake.

    TIME is the ice cream truck that plays church music!

    here am I, manager Kilbey- keeping it relavent in a creative way…if relevence is what your dear heart desires.

    just let me have my free speach, my women’s activist rights, my whatever else you might also enjoy.

    So here we are, driving around in this church machine that can TIMELESSLY go anywhere in this universe. Genx, yes! The stereo has been designed by my neighbor marty, specifically to sound perfect with church music. You’ll always remember your childhood images- maybe we could create more? Home IS where the heart is…I’ll visit my 95 y.o. grandmother very soon who really is RUNNING OUT OF TIME. As for where I’d like to go? I’d love to drive around this place with all of you in the church mobile…firstly, go to their concerts where ever they might be.

    The disgruntled might have to stay in the backseat though, they could p r o b a b l y change their attitude from positive to negative-=we’ve go TIME for that.

    Lovely Sunday in CA

    PS — and though it’s been said several times before, isn’t it odd that “lie” is at the center of belief?

    Nice Jim Morrison quote, jj. Has anyone heard Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party song “Woman In The Window?” I just heard it last night, and it has audio of Jim Morrison singing something I’ve never heard before. It’s like a lost Jim Morrison song.

    Isn’t it about TIME the lights were all turned back on?

    The Suns inspired me to write that and this too:

    keep on driving
    keep on dreaming
    don’t look back
    just keep believing

    Relevant? Well yes, don’t let time keep you in the dark and don’t let it become a road block to your dreams.

    Truth must exist before the lies can unfold…How can u lie about something that isn’t there?? If u did u would be lieing about nothing and that nothing existed before your lies…anyways, and what is time? Just a consideration? A method to measure matter moving through space? Are we outside of time looking in? What appears to be is that time is all, but if we created it why are we succumbing to it’s power?? Why agree with it, that would only make it more relevant to your life. Time has had no effect but only what is an apparency of effect on the physical universe. If we exist independent of this then time has no bearing on us as we persist through and beyond time. We have our own time. Do what you want with it in your own time. What takes me a long time may be a short time to you then your short time may be extremely quick to me from where I sit so there goes time…

    Firing The Grid

    Tomorrow, at exactly eleven minutes past noon, we are invited to spend an hour helping to heal the planet. We are asked to meditate, pray or sit in quiet contemplation. Together, apparently, this will ‘Fire The Grid’. The Grid is an invisible spiritual network of souls who yearn to replace anger, poverty and pollution with peace, prosperity and wisdom. The organiser is a Canadian lady who nearly drowned in an accident and was miraculously saved along with her son. ‘Voices’ told her how to survive. Now those same voices are now urging her to get us all doing this

    the very moment our eyes truly open to see the full arrangement of the dawn earth
    the moment your heart reflects light that encompasses all of the suffering of the cosmos
    at that point the notion of time vanishes
    and all of our beloved ones are of the blessed one
    we find that we can only sing and dance among them…
    the aging of our bodies, the shell of vanity,
    the endless everpresent moment is ours and ours alone
    we are the ultimate
    we are the magnificence
    tis all divine
    tis all divine…
    sing your song killah
    its been the melody of a lifetime
    all hear it
    its sacred
    timeless….
    “in the morning
    buildings swarming
    pearls are forming
    in the sea”

    every night as a family we would
    say this prayer together..

    yo soy El
    y tu tambien
    yo soy puro y perfecto
    y tambien los de mas
    yo soy en todos
    y en todos las vidas
    yo soy el universo
    somos infinito
    yo soy El

    I am the essence
    and thou as well
    I am pure and perfect
    as are all
    I exist in everyone
    and in all of life
    we are the universe
    we are infinite
    we are the essence

    -my father

    take it eazy sk….

    Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
