misery guts

misery guts

you wanna sleep a little longer man

yeah i only been asleep 12 hours

the more i sleep the tireder i get

i see my family they are beautiful souls

in gardens of blinding flowers

in canteens at the end of the road

i hurled the book aside i cannot read it any longer

a thirsty elemental for destruction is trying to jump on my ship

a bad spell is upon me is it

removed slowly by our greatest oceans healing minerals

my plot has been lost among seaside graves

from my great distance

i see it all rush together

i see it all fall apart

oh too late to have sussed

decisions stack up outside my half-assed mind

some huge fucking fine falls out of the post

or i cant drive my stupid fucking car

my left hand goggle leaks in the pool no matter what i do

i break into tears at the drop of almost any hat

a genteel sad madness in the wee flat hours

a loneliness that one million crowds cannot appease

i cannot remember one song i ever even wrote not a note

still i walk along energetically trying to burn off my demons

at the pool i hurt my foot and i strangely enjoy the stinging pain

i peer through the veil for you and i see sleep

in your lovely story with all its happy endings

the autumn holiday is nearly over

i get ready for another type of hesitation

but i cant decide…

    The damp end. Rolling leaves. You’re back. Welcome back Steve. Some tour you must have had sir. Duty calls. I think Globe Spinning is my favourite F/D song. Hard to choose.

    “i break into tears at the drop of almost any hat” – But you’re too busy for that 🙂

    This sounds more like me than I would wish on anyone! I wish I could write it out as eloquently as you do. That genteel sad madness in the wee hours sucks. I pray for you every day. Keep burning off the demons.

    Yeah , Steve ,same as Kraig..I sent a post saying how much I enjoyed yr Amoeba set & yr comedic dialogue.This was blocked….can’t see that it’s offensive to praise yr performance ?Anyhow, reading THIS post, glad to see I’m not the only one feeling meloncholie at present.Lennon said (to Pete Shotten,who was having a bad trip)”We all experience the same things, Pete,It’s the same for all of us.We’re all the same.”

    I lie in bed 17 hours a day. I see no reason to get up. I don’t have drug contacts like you. Maybe that’d make me feel more motivated. I tried salvia divinorum once but was too scared of cops raiding me to order more from overseas (I have no local contacts). Still my Salvia experience was exceptional, although I had to impress upon a lady in my head that there was no ‘John’ here. She was very insistent. I did make her go away in the end.
