Weekend Nights

Weekend nights and city lights

Everyone is out tonight

Weekend nights and party fights

Oh the stars are bright

Weekend nights and city lights

Everyone is out tonight

Weekend nights and party fights

Oh the stars are bright


Weekend nights and Saturday lies

Spending is high but cash is tight

Weekend nights and Sunday highs

Don’t worry everything is alright

Nothing But Empty Air

Burning doors and falling roofs

Don’t ask how, it’s what we do

Settle down and take a seat

You’re on a journey; a trip with me

Fires burning and embers blaze

This how we’re spending the rest of our days

Navigating our way out of this maze

Let others go, we’re going to run our race

Burning doors and falling roofs

Don’t ask how, it’s what we do

Settle down and take a seat

You’re on a journey; a trip with me

Fires burning and embers blaze

This how we’re spending the rest of our days

Navigating our way out of this maze

Let others go, we’re going to run our race


So sit down, look around

We got space and time to spare

I think I’ve found, my way out

And I got an idea where

Where we’re going, where we’ll be

Is a place not no one else can see

Nothing but empty air

Human Instinct: Fear

Its human instinct to fear

Its our nature to reason

Its in us to be afraid

But that don’t apply to me

 

Its human instinct to fear

No matter the time or the season

Its our nature to be afraid

But that don’t apply to me

 

Fear is just the absence of faith

Fear is the lack of bravery

Fear is nothing but shame

And fear should be afraid of me

 

To be brave is our fate

To be weak is unsavoury

The weak have no one to blame

And fear should be afraid of me



The Icognito Writer: Instinct

Exposed Now

City nights and street lights They are all laid bare Glimmering sights and pub fights
Its all in the air
Exposed now
They are exposed now
From the air to the ground
They are exposed now
Walking by with head held high
I know where I have been
Even the sky is under my watchful eye

City nights and street lights

They are all laid bare

Glimmering sights and pub fights

Its all in the air


Exposed now

They are exposed now

From the air to the ground

They are exposed now


Walking by with head held high

I know where I have been

Even the sky is under my watchful eye

I know what I have seen


Exposed now

They are exposed now

From the air to the ground

They are exposed now


They are exposed now



The Icognito Writer:

Laughter, Pleasure And Joy

Immerse yourself in the moment

Set your soul free

Life is meant for enjoyment

So enjoy it with all your being

Fill yourself with laughter

Fill yourself with joy

You can worry after

But for now, just smile and enjoy

Drown yourself in pleasure

Fill your smile to the brim

Have a laugh for good measure

Don’t ever be too grim

Immerse yourself in the moment

You never now how long may last

Even if its a tiny bit of enjoyment

Enjoy it and forget the past



The Icognito Writer: Immerse

In The Night Time

In the night time

We are creeping

Hiding from daylight

While others sleeping

Finding the right time

We need a reason

We’re in the limelight

We are still living

In the night time

Don’t know what hit you

Better watch out

Before someone sees you

In the right time

You’ve got to break free

Don’t mock about

This all rides on me

In the night time

Hello Soldier

Hello soldier from the war

I heard you lost your leg there

You were so full of life before

Now your face reeks of fear

Hello soldier from the war

I heard you lost your leg there

You were so full of life before

Now your face reeks of fear

 

Hello child from the war

I heard you lost your mother now

You had a beautiful smile before

Now its naught but a perpetual frown

 

Hello sister from the grave

I heard you’re dead as it stands

You made one simple mistake

Now that one was your last

 

Hello father from the grave

Your wife is calling out to you

You were strong, you were brave

Now there ‘s nothing left of you

 

Hello soldier from the war

You are young, you are proud

You say you are different from those before

But your voice is a familiar sound

Forest Fire

The fire burns in the distance

The smell of burning wood fills the air

Trees fall without resistance, the beautiful forest is no longer here

 

Death and life bring forth sadness

Just as cloud and sea bring forth rain

There is beauty within the madness, there is joy within the pain

 

The forest is now bought a memory

The hills a cruel torture

Yet as I watch such irony, I can’t help but watch longer



The Icognito Writer

Darling, I

Tender fires fill your eyes

Your hands are warm to touch

Desire brings a nice surprise

Darling, I miss you so much

 

Loving words through the night

As we hold each other close

Its late, but the time is right

Darling, I got to let you go

 

Slipping away through the darkness

I watch as you cry and you tremble

I’m pulled by an invisible harness

Darling, I love you so

Horizon

I’m by the pier now

Where the waves are gentle and the air is kind

There is no one around

And I suddenly have peace of mind

I’m by the pier now

Staring into the depths of the horizon

Revealing the mysteries of space

As the waves are slowly rising


Quicker now they go

Faster now they run

Rushing onwards towards the sunset

Rushing onwards towards the sunset

Their pace is quickened

Their hearts are restless

Rushing on to the horizon

Rushing on to the horizon


But time slows back to a crawl

And the waves calm back down

The tide is drawn back in

No high waves around

But its time once again

To rush into the pray

And as they splash and crash

I understand the beautiful month of May


Quicker now they go

Faster now they run

Rushing onwards towards the sunset

Rushing onwards towards the sunset

Their pace is quickened

Their hearts are restless

Rushing on to the horizon

Rushing on to the horizon



The Icognito Writer: In response to Quicken

Hold You Close

I want to hold you close

Feel the freckles on your skin

Stare at beautiful grin

Those teeth in beautiful white rows


I long to be next to you

To hear that laugh once more

The laugh that helps me soar

When I feel blue


I desire to hold you close

Never wanted to let you go

But heartache is all I know

Heartache and sorrow



The Icognito Writer: Desire

Why Do I Wait?

Why do I hesitate

Why do I wait

Why do I not reach for what I want


Why am I lax

Yet why can’t I relax

What is it that I want


I want that garden

That is green and pink

Shining with its unique radiance

Such a brilliant garden

Is what I would think

Would make me sing and dance


Why do I hesitate

Why do I wait

Why do I not reach for what I want



The Icognito Writer: In response to Hesitate

Like Smoke

Doubt

Like smoke rises

And fills the air

A beautiful fragrance gone

It’s rich aura lost

Replaced by a frightening fear

A fear of that which is lost

A fear of what is happening

A fear of what is to come

And if we give in to that fear

We become like the wind

And we are gone

For worrying has never brought comfort

It has never brought peace

It has never brought tranquility

But why do we worry

Why do we doubt

Because we are not divinity

We are like smoke

We rise and we fall

We live and pass

Like the fragile creatures we are

We know no steadiness

For nothing ever truly lasts

Like smoke
