For All You Modern Day Warriors – Rush – Tom Sawyer

Published May 7, 2022 by tindertender

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events

The river

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren’t permanent

But change is

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

Working Class Hero

Published April 30, 2022 by tindertender

As soon as you’re born, they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
‘Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
‘Til you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function, you’re so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me
If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me

I Am Light

Published April 11, 2022 by tindertender

I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light

I am not the things my family did
I am not the voices in my head
I am not the pieces of the brokenness inside

I am light
I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light

I’m not the mistakes that I have made
Or any of the things that caused me pain
I am not the pieces of the dream I left behind

I am light
I am light
I am light
I, I am light
I am light, I am light
Ay-yeah
I am light, I am light

I am not the colour of my eyes
I am not the skin on the outside
I am not my age
I am not my race, my soul inside is all light
All light
All light, yeah
All light

I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light, yeah

I am devinity defined
I am the god on the inside
I am a star
A piece of it all
I am light

The Message

Published April 4, 2022 by tindertender

Woke with this song in mind …. messages comin’ in HOT!!!!!

She was A Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin’ the life like a back street dream
Tellin’ mi lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin’ mi ’round like a wheel on fire
Walkin’ on tightrope, my love’s high wire
Fatal attraction is where I’m at
There’s no escapin’ me
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love
When I’m lying in the midnight hour
Holding you just like a dream

Love is never what it seems
When we touch
And you’re holding me the way you feel
Girl, you make my dreams come true

You make my dreams come true
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to

I just wanna be close to you (Huh)
And show you the way I feel (Huh-huh-huh)
She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
She holds mi back or she too far
Windin’ mi up just to let her down

So emotional, gagged and bound
There’s more to this than meets the eye
A devil woman locked outside
With the full moon rising, I was scared

I think I was possessed
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to

I just wanna be close to you (Huh-huh-huh-huh-huh-huh)
And show you the way I feel
I feel love
Every time your body’s next to mine
Something deep inside of me

Wants to love you endlessly
When we touch
Girl, you don’t know how it makes me feel
I just can’t believe it’s real
I can’t believe it’s real

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

She got an attitude, I can’t explain
You never know if you’re in frame
Tying me up with elastic words
I’m on the countdown till I get heard

Her blood was hot, she burned so bright
A neon sign there in the night
It’s hard to say if I went too far
My heart still bears a scar
I just wanna be close to you

I just wanna be close to you (Huh-huh-huh-huh)
(I just wanna be close to you) She was A Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin’ the life like a back street dream
Tellin’ mi lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin’ mi ’round like a wheel on fire
Walkin’ on tightrope, my love’s high wire
Fatal attraction is where I’m at
There’s no escapin’ me

I wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you (I just wanna be close to you, baby)
And show you the way I feel

I wanna be close to you (Baby)
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

Moving Meditation

Published March 31, 2022 by tindertender

I do believe a moving meditation is in order tonight. SJ Tucker does a fabulous track. I play it on repeat. Loud. With headphones. While “moving” energy.

https://skinnywhitechick.bandcamp.com/track/moving-meditation

New release, dedicated to the Soulwriters group, without whom this song wouldn’t have been born. 

From S. J.: lately my dance practice has really helped me to manage my moods and emotions when nothing else could. This track is for anyone who finds calm and renewed strength in taking time to move, or to breathe.

lyrics

Open up and breathe in your moving meditation.
When the stress is rising up, take it down.
The water lilies of your thoughts are sacred.
Let them rest inside the sound for now.

Breathe in; breathe out.
Breathe in; breathe out.

Savasana

From The Heart

Published February 25, 2022 by tindertender

Immortality o’ersweeps all pains, all tears, all time, all fears ~ and peals,
Like the eternal thunders of the deep,
Into my ears this truth ~ Thou liv’st for ever.
~ Anon

Love, which proclaims thee human bids thee know
A truth more lofty in thy lowliest hour
Than shallow glory taught to human power,
“What’s human is immortal!”
~ Bulwer
