Time To Stop Starting Over Again

Poem By KMC Centlivre

How’d we get started on this merry-go-round?
Your horse is up
When my horse is down
We keep goin’ ‘round in circles
To the same crazy song
Buy two more tickets and climb right back on

It’s time to stop startin’ over again
It’s time to quit making beginnings from ends
We keep sayin’ goodbye, but we don’t wanna go
We’re getting’ nowhere to fast and somewhere too slow

We tried all the rides that go up and down
Move forwards and backwards and spin you around
That take you heights and then let you fall
We keep movin’ somewhere, but nowhere at all

The carnival barker yelled out “win a prize! ”
We both paid our money and both got three tries
We both got three ringers and won a few rounds
If we just knew that it’s time to quit when you’re down

It’s time to stop startin’ over again
It’s time to quit making beginnings from ends
We keep sayin’ goodbye, but we don’t wanna go
We’re getting’ nowhere to fast and somewhere too slow

(An idea of R. Mastry finished by me - 1994)

I hate the weather
I hate the cold
I hate the empty dusty roads
I hate the trees without no leaves

Johnny Went To Hollywood

Johnny went to Hollywood
Said he’s gonna be a star
Things didn’t turn out so good
Johnny’s livin’ in his car

Love Thy Neighbor

Jesus said a lot of things, Mohammed said them, too
Moses went to the mountaintop, Dr. King did, too
But, no one really listened to them
Instead they put their pictures on the wall

Worst Mistake

I made the worst mistake of my life
I ignored all the warnin’ signs
I made a hard left when I shoulda turned right
And made the worst mistake of my life

Space People

Have you heard of the people who live in the skies?
(I think I seen ‘em)
Some of them are short with big round black eyes
(I never seen them)

Same Ol' Things Happen Over And Over

Here you come again breaking my heart again
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if I could live without it
I’d look the other way but, that won’t change yesterday
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if you didn’t brag about it
