against my grain

steam congeals into ice

spirit condenses into flesh

they say animal turned into human

but ive never seen that happen

voice in another room : but youve seen the opposite….

look i dont want any trouble

i just want to change the world and go home

i just want a cuppa tea and watch some telly

i just wanted to rule the universe..oh what a mess i have made…

last night i was not dreaming as i lay deep awake

one of my souls then left its hearts chamber

and exited straight through the door of the crown

the minute i put me foot down on the os-celerator

you know i’m a pretty sharpshooter on my own plane

i took down the wing coz it drove me insane

i flew into your mountain in the cold astral rain

i am here both by choice and the law once again

i am here to be tried near these piers of my thane

undone by the sons of the evil unslain

unmeasurable things i bring back for perusal

look faint-hearted sword oh damascus inlaid

a diamond geezer i am with divine spam

the violent gods send all of their thoughts to me

i publish them on the net like fish poetry

one  god up in heaven

one god in the sea

one god in the earth

one god here in thee

one god in the fire who sent you to me

one god in the death for who else could it be…?

these fragments and morsels that feed me most nights

i suck up the glamour and i freeze from the slights

and  drove round in my falcon under black and white lights

i stopped in the graveyards and got into fights

i went down in a heap convinced i was scaling new heights

i forged my identity which violated my rights

i entered the blindspot outside the gun sights

i created a war out of maybes n mights

i invented a golem dressed in loose tights

who fucked up my lines and lost all my kites

who lucked out at last last time they did rites

who hung around like some stalagmites

in a cave full of trolls and ‘orrible wights

god i must be dreaming i was walking towards a shore

jesus christ at my side as we walk through the dunes

wow hes talking english with a swedish accent like max von sydow

the saviours voice is so melodious it is so mellifluous

i am hypnotised i cannot concentrate on his sutras and mantras

steven its no good if you dont listen

says that glorious voice so warm and so damn mild

(almost like the voice of a child)

his voice has the quality of every great symphony

his voice i can feel it way down in the ground

yet high in an ether unturned by a moon

sweeter than honey preceding a swoon

more insinuating than a mining boon

more devastating than a forty eight crash

more trepidation than a honeymoon rash

i wake in a sweat i open the door

everythings changed ; its jus’ like before

god i gotta lay off the uranian figs

the physician from greece has been seen at your digs

hes on the guest list for some of my gigs

the ones i’m not doing on account of the rain

it couldnt be helped

it’ll come round again

yeah i crashed into your mountain

in the cold astral rain

i am here by both choice and the law once again

    Dear Steve Killbee,

    I read three bios of Jesus Christ last year.

    You must remember what you wrote: “he never speaks to me, I wonder if that´s odd”. But it´s because you´re NEVER listening.

    That was excellent. One of your best works to date, it could easily evolve into a internet traded sermon company many , so many churches this Sunday morning and afternoon. Imagine the priests and peers likened…breaking pencils or their I – Pad to write up a ‘dazzler’ for upcoming Sunday.
    And you go and create a service that provides words of “inspiration” at great prices and you take PayPal……… price these masses of male clergy to whatever you can Bring in $$$……they do with their free time…. now they will have more ……of it….to….you know…..guy things…??!!!!!!!!!


    Absolutely beautiful Steve !!!

    Don’t fear the unknown. Welcome the unknown. You were BORN unknown, and knew nothing. Why change it?

    When the words are cut away, you are but a throbbing soul.

    Let it be.

    I often wondered if you do experience astral travel, out-of-the-body, whatever you want to call it?

    Don’t worry dearest sk, everything will go smoothly…the play and your stay in Melbourne won’t be as bad as you think. Just try and relax, rest, work, eat, drink and be merry….OK!!!!

    See you on Friday 🙂

    ‘Earthed’ was one of the more pleasant things that turned up today… no the pleasantest.

    I really enjoyed this one. I loved the previous one, fruition, too. I was preparing a lengthy reply to it in my head, but you moved on before I was ready. But I did finish another video for an Izzy2 song. Not sure how I feel about it. It’s hard to make it look like people are dancing on clouds. Ha-ha! The vid:

    Caught between two waves
    Lost in the green blue swell
    The eyes of a commanding presence
    The need to slowly investigate
    Is she the one?
    Are we alone?
    There are trailing voices
    Black dogs growl behind unkempt fencing
    This is the dirty part of town
    Vices are nothing more than fantasy fulfilled
    I reach out to touch….
    There is something in the way
    A March downpour floods the streets
    Water between ancient bricks
    Trickles over solitary stones
    I hid in an archway
    A light appears in the building
    This is a signal from the heavens
    Cathedral grey meets angelic white
    Now, now and forever

    No god nowhere. Never was. No sign of the divine in anything ive ever seen heard or felt. No creation no paradise no grandad at the end of a tunnel of light or dead pet reunions. All of the misery pain and defeat of life and all for nothing. And afterwards? Nothing.

    some thoughts float back on gentle ripples
    chapters from the past, guitars and fiddles
    while a prophet calls out from the middle
    and says it’s not a lie, it’s not a riddle
    be still despite the chaos, don’t belittle
    what you know and what you believe, little
    forks in the road won’t deter you, feel it
    thy words are forever, nothing taradiddle
    walk along divine paths, construct thy kiddle
    gather up good things, never let the light dwindle

      Check Ur email when u get a chance. That song is top notch. What a great job on all fronts and the vocals, the vocals are the best yet. And that’s saying alot. I think u should ask SK to hear the song , he probably will agree. If I had only one critique, that would be to trim 15-30 seconds off the song.

      Otherwise, I’m intrigued on what the title will be….hhmmmmmmm?????

        it WILL fade-out 30 secs before the end daz….it’s only a rough cut
        at the moment!
        i think it will be called ‘spirit’.
