city of rocks/city of flakes (12/9/2018)

I did have a beautiful instrumental healing love song that I was going to post, but apparently this is more appropriate.  Anyway, it’s a song about the place where I live and the people who live here. 




lyrics: 
will anyone here do what
they say for me?
a paucity of reciprocity
the atrocity
the sap by the giving tree
the sap trapped here is me
promise of a day then another day
and another day
fair trade delayed
made in the shady shade
shaded by the mess you made
city of rocks
city of flakes
there’s no share
it’s all take
city of rocks
city of flakes
the rusted untrusted
waiting cage
not all that’s gold glitters
it’s not just snakes that slither
when she says come hither
that’s not gold that glitters
not all that’s gold glitters
that anorexic slither
when she says come hither
that’s not gold that glitters
city of rocks
city of flakes
you made this arid waste
when you were late
with every fair trade
that was delayed
and every betrayal
and excuse you made
not all that’s gold glitters
it’s not just snakes that slither
when she says come hither
that’s not gold that glitters
don’t ever think you miss her
she was a bullshitter
a spoiled evil poser
the flaky snake that slithered
density is not destiny
we can all choose how to live
we can still choose how to live
you chose to live like this
