warp n woof

silver lining up

on nights like this with sudden squalls

i cant be bothered trying too hard to harden this carapace

this car apace with liquid space

oh i flow

theres is more than this

oh i know

it lasts the dark pasts

lightening the under

over and over

evening arrival of the white hot chocolate stars

their noise drowns out the blackness

memory of today while it was everything  i will forget

the rain cannot hold itself back any longer

it falls with its diamond flashing glints

mostly black though and unseen

it is an implication rather than fact

it is sleep personified a thousand tiny times it hits

goodnight then

i travel through a storm in this accelerating house

and the vistas burst open

revealing what is to be


what it is to be hold it

    i hope you had a good, deep sleep while it rained. nighttime rain while sleeping is so peaceful and liberating. and it seems to wash your soul and make it new.
    “memory of today while it was everything i will forget”
    i can very much relate to this.
    hope you have a good day, steve.
    lotza love…..

    Coming home to an empty house can be a blessing in disguise, or a prison by your self. I always find it necessary to have music or the TV on to drown out the quiet. i hope you get some rest and work done. I know that you may have read my review yesterday of the new ‘gb3’ , i hope you enjoyed it. I think you have a modern masterpiece brewing inside you. Even though ‘the church’ do not need any creditdation, it would be nice to see you guys kick the crap out of these modern noise-makers. And have sales that provide instant wealth and future security. But it really doesn’t matter what you guys do , it will be well received by the legions, unless its a rap album. That would not be good, but hell – it would sell in Japan at least, everything sells there.

    yeh, it grabs your heart with a firm grip.
    And shortens your breath.
    Like being a kid and getting to the most exciting part of the story your reading.
    I felt it too Ryan

    did effects paint a smile on the wizard’s face, or was it already there? from the look in the eye and magical words, i’d guess the latter. thanks for the altered state of mind.

    Hey Sk

    I think the image speaks as loud as the words. Your whole mind must be a vortex right now. I’m thinking of you and wish I could be a friend to you and just be there and listen for you.

    Hi sk, hope you’re well and coping with all the family gone, it must be so quiet without the kids but it’s good to see ya busy on the showbiz side of things (hope you’re getting rewarded financially too!!!).

    I’m counting down the days til The Church touch down in Melby…..3 nights of pure bliss! I’m thinking now it’ll be so hard to talk to ya after a show, now that you’re back in the limelight AND you’re one of the “hottest names in the Oz music biz”…but I’m so happy for ya sk, you deserve it! 🙂

    love Amanda

    A leaf in the wind. But I’m sure you’ll end up in a good place.

    Loved your speech at the Arias sk, had a big grin on my face. Last and best.
    Great bag of fruit too, you looked tres debonair. Is midnight blue the new black?
    I think you’ve had enough practise at this tv caper now, it’s time for your own show. Bring it on I say. “Live with Kilbo – featuring the church”.

    Keep on keeping on old bean.

    Love to ya

    accelerating house, what a unique, dreamy image
    passport to parallel dimensions, another lineage?
    solitude taketh away the calm inside, rogue feelings
    complicate this spirit awakening, drifting, sleeping
    water dripping in my kitchen, a new day beginning
    hold my course, clear horizon, I think I’m winning
    “these days are brave, i’m on my way” got me thinking
    about the infinite worth of the genius mind, spinning
    madness into genuine poetry, music, singing, & therapy…

    Love the image, and as usual, just want to kiss every word. Some images that come remind me of a novel I once studied at uni; Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman -Einstein dreams that time is a circle, that it is water, that it doesn’t exist at all. Sometimes time slows down, sometimes it speeds up, it flows backwards in isolated rivulets, or branches outward in parallel worlds to explore the relationships between people, time and human condition. Good book for the mind and soul. I think you would like it. L x
