WAITING FOR


i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen

there is a silent rush
where the dew meets
blazing pink edges
cloudes shift moving
& heads peaking
& birds talking
as the covers are falling off

& i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen

there is a low growling underneath
paper shredding
& earth grounding
the smell of thunderstorm is thick
with litigation flying
& politicians flapping
& truth tip-toeing
then hiding

& i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen
i’m waiting for good things to happen

lands are afire from our clever machines
you know it’s engineering
to its best degree
let’s send the best and brightest to the killing fields
wiled it all in a pen
& economic policy
no, National Security

& i’m waiting for good things & good good good good things
i’m wating for good good good good good things
i’m waiting good good good good things

the heavens descend in this dream
bodies & souls alike fly
not merely destroyed
free & in joy
squeal from the laughter
as the sun dives

 

GOOD THINGS

& night
happening
no longer visibility
with these eyes

& i’m waiting, what’s happening?
i’m waiting & what’s happening?
i’m waiting & what’s happening?

doesn’t this country
doesn’t this world
don’t these people
yes, your & mine

doesn’t this dirt
don’t those birds
doesn’t the future of
our children deserve

good things
good things
good things
we want
good things
good things
good things
good things
we want
good things
we deserve
and we want
give us
good things
good things
good things
good things
good things
good things
good things
