    Fairground

    Like a moth your sucked right in
    when the lights and sounds begin
    Planned on the village green
    the greatest sights you've ever seen
    Summer now has just begun
    and it starts with so much fun
    The travelling fair is in full swing
    the village lit up with its bling
    Chairoplanes and dodgems cars
    a simulation trip to Mars
    In the sky you see the glow
    every night you'd have to go
    Hook a duck and shooting range
    so much fun your feeling strange
    The octopus would spin you round
    you could not wait to feel the ground
    Sugar rushing through your brain
    candyfloss now filled your veins
    Summer now is in full swing
    when the lights and sounds begin

    Opening Night

    Packaging up and pulling down
    moving to another town
    The work was hard the craic was great
    until you lift the heavy plate
    It must have been now twice the weight
    you'd get the call your breakfast waits
    So much stuff to pack away
    have to travel in a day
    Checking loads and tugging ropes
    dodging traffic scream at dopes
    On the road now for the day
    for safe passage now you'd pray
    Safely parked now on new grounds
    building up not like pull downs
    Slowly now your work begins
    with it now excitement brings
    Crowds now stand and watch each day
    for ten days the show would stay
    Everything now double checked
    safety first in all respects
    Start the plant to check the lights
    ready now for opening night

    Happiness

    Happiness


    Are you happy with your life
    with your family and your strife
    In a time that's filled with fear
    are you lucky that there near
    Living now with restrictions
    is it causing just more friction
    Sympathy for you my friend
    is it hard for you to bend
    Will you breakdown in your head
    think of all the things bed
    Wake up with the pain inside
    try to run and even hide
    Lockdown has us on ledge
    living life on knifes edge
    Will you brake or can you bend
    can you count on your friends
    Are you happy with your life
    with your family and your strife
    Living life in constant fear
    times have changed for you my dear
    Are you happy with your life
    with your family and your strife
    If you find you need a friend
    type a message and just send

    Departed

    Blood now trickled from your head on the floor now you lay dead
    Now the room all changed around it’s so quiet without you round
    Strangest day that you went seems for you the angels sent
    Sorrow fills me up inside from the day that you died
    Morning comes and your not here not a sound now can I hear
    Used to listen out at night now this room is oh so quiet
    I moved in when you went now the room has my sent
    Missing all the fun we had and the moments we got mad
    Mother how I miss you so but my heart will always be on the day that you left me
    Blood now trickled down your face now you sleep in gods embrace

    Mighty quill

    As I lay my head to rest you wake up and with me jest
    Words now jump around my head at this moment in my bed
    Figured out how much I know as your wisdom to me show
    Dogs now howling in the yard seams for me now sleep is bard
    So I bend now too your will as I picked up this mighty quill
    Freedom now too you I give as my mind is at your will
    Something strange has my sleep on hold as soon I write the stories told
    In the bonds that we now share as this page it seams I stare

    Savior

    Sweetness touching on my lips as you emerged from the shadows
    Knowing that you will be my savior filled my heart with joy
    I have struggled far too long and grasping this chance for happiness
    Reaching out to embrace you shadows filled the room
    I knew at this point I was dreaming I struggle to awaken my sleeping body
    Knowing what comes next I have been down this road before
    Always leading me astray with sweetness and happiness only to ruthlessly pulling me deeper
    Deeper into the nightmare that unfolds true darkness
    I reach out to turn on the lights but they don’t work as I struggle from the weight on my chest
    Holding me down as I try to shake myself free from your grasp

    Balance

    I struggle to create balance in my life surrounded by darkness
    I lock myself away from human contact in order to defend my soul from their hunger
    People tend to feed on my light and unload there darkness to my soul
    I eventually gain control of my life only to be dragged backwards every time
    I have chosen to face life differently and began to share my soul
    I now know freedom as my mind is allowed to run freely as I write
    I now share my body with my own soul and together they unleash my spirit
    Often in my release my words speak of darkness but the light will follow

    Restless

    Once again a restless night will my body my mind will fight
    Sleeping soundly and then awaken body cold and even shaking
    From my sleep I awaken
    Struggle hard to settle down now my face wares a frown
    Oh to sleep the whole night trough and to dream without you
    Demon that comes in the night to wake me up with such a fright
    Now awake to face my day my body tired and eyes are sore seams your ahead now with the score
    Dreaming of a night alone to free my mind and heal my soul
    Demons chasing every night lost my will to even fight

    Follow me

    Follow me if you must before my words turn to dust
    Dust it seems I have been blown about within my dreams
    Fighting hard to reform back together now I swarm
    In the cycle that I’m trapped fighting hard to become whole
    Words now spilling out my soul
    Follow me if you must soon my words will be just dust
    In my dreams I chase each day for my words to somehow stay
    In this cycle that I’m trapped words on pages overlapping in my head I try remapping
    Words now spilling from my soul wishing one day too feel whole

    Beneath the sky

    Motionless I lay beneath the sky as the sun now rises high
    Future flicking through my head moments spent now uncontrolled
    Freedom found within my life sun is soaking up my strife
    Glowing from your warm embrace smile now form upon my face
    In your glory now I find that my body can unwind
    Twisted up as it has been close my eyes I start to dream
    Dreaming of a better place where my demons cannot chase
    Moments that you give to me when my body and mind are free
    Freedom from my daily struggle only you can take my troubles

    Engulfed in Beauty

    In the vastness of my darkness I can find beauty
    My soul is tortured but my mind is filled with the freedom of nature
    Surrounded by trees in an endless forest I am engulfed with her beauty
    Trying to express to the best of my uneducated mind
    The truth lies deep within the wisdom of my pain
    From you I hide nothing as my words unfold in the moments we share
    I am but the vessel

    Sleepless nights

    Here I am once again fingers clamped around my pen
    In the hours of early morning should be sleeping but my minds awake
    So to this pen I take and this demon try to shake
    Funny how much sleep I get seems to have this strange effect
    Fuzzy feeling in my head as I lay here in my bed
    All around me oh so quiet hear to sounds things outside
    Mice now nibble in the floor sounds of wind at the door
    Sleepless nights there been a few so I come to share with you
    Words that randomly appeared in my mind they are seared
    Thankful for the mighty pen as I scribble words again

    Ticking time

    Ticking time for no man waits in this game I must play
    Even longer is my day as my mind with me must play
    Try to focus now my mind so some sleep that I might find
    In the realm of the dark my mind continues now to spark
    Flicking fingers now obsessed neatly now that keys are pressed
    Writing words from deep inside that my mind now provides
    Trapped here in the twilight zone have to face my night alone
    All about the house I can hear the mice appear as they scurry now in fear
    See I left the cat back in it’s a game that mice can’t win
    Ticking time for no man waits and the mice the cat now chase
