The City

Poem By Pete Rivera

Darkness after sundown
The spirits would rise
And the shadows were growing

So I rode off to the city
The cathedral in light
And I saw God
In my own way

Crying God will you guide
Day to day
For the ghosts of the city
Will stay

I rode down the streets
And soon they came
Demons were surrounding
Were surrounding me

They said show me this God
Whom you forever obey
He leaves no room for shadows
No room for shadows

Crying God will you guide
Day to day
For the ghosts of the city
Will stay

You can see the teardrops
Descend from the mountain tops
And you can feel my heart
As if we were never apart

A Sense Of Immortality

The truth has hid its ugly head from us
And now I'm caught in a lie
Will I die?
A sense of immortality has showed up

The Drug

Teach me now
To become less stressed
Sedate me now
And give me rest

The Aeroplane

And I found myself
Alone in the dark
Mending my broken heart
But didn't know where to start

Ascended

The tide has turned
I have lost
Fallen from grace
Taken away

Upon A Starry Sky

I am lost for words
When I see your face
Yet you seem to make
So many mistakes
