Little Bit Of Me Everywhere lyrics

Connect  by Ed Englerth

The night of nights – a low low tide
life’s sure long – In this killing fog
Lights passing by – Not trying to hide
We hold each other – Seems like forever
I want to connect – I want your touch
Just one time – Won’t be enough
I want us to last – I want to know you
I want to connect – I need rescued
I want to know who you are – Connect direct
I’ll give all I am – I’ll plead and I’ll beg
At every attempt – It’s gets so intense
Sweat pours through my soul – And yet I’m so cold
I am not alone – It’s touch and go
I’ll fight till I die – Don’t say good night

Pilgrim Progress by Ed Englerth

Embark on this journey – Never thought I’d take
Started this pilgrimage – To the revered estate
I cringe at comparisons – While boarding the plane
Contemplating clouds – How does the soul change?

Will this pilgrim progress – From destruction to heaven
Collecting the stones that were thrown – At Saint Stephen

A stray smudge left – By unconscious hope
Walking where they walked – Haunts of our Heroes
Some morsel of essence – It’s the business of history
Bought by ancient impulse – Entertainment disguised as Piety

Will this pilgrim progress – From destruction to heaven
Collecting the stones that were thrown – At Saint Stephen
 
The motive is devotion – Nothing here to earn
I’m not here for research – I’m a desperate pilgrim
The rain falls – On the obscure & famous
Truth does not change – Over time & space

All I want is a flashlight – in this dark room
All I want is a river – in this desert of gloom
All I want is relief – from this land of pain
All I want is cleansing – of this stain

Will this pilgrim progress – From destruction to heaven
Collecting the stones that were thrown – At Saint Stephen

Turn On The Water     By Ed Englerth
Oil Slick Soul – & Dirty Knees
Sorrowful Face – I Still Believe
 Sleep-Walking Still – Will I Awake
Bitter N’ Broken – Pills On My Plate

Turn On The Water – Throw Me In The Deep End
Turn On The Water – I’m Full Of Weakness –
When You See Me – Walking Backwards
Show Compassion – Your Love Matters

Foolish Flames – Tickle My Skin
Empty I Know – Yet I Give In
Jumping N’  Shouting – Weight On My Head
So Here I Am With My Hands Outstreached

Turn On The Water – Throw Me In The Deep End
Turn On The Water – I’m Full Of Weakness –
When You See Me – Walking Backwards
Show Compassion – Your Love Matters

I Need An Ocean Of Hope – Waves Of Forgiveness – A Rope To The Shore
I Want Your Arms To Hold Me – Waiting & Patient – Strong & Secure  

Turn On The Water – Throw Me In The Deep End
Turn On The Water – I’m Full Of Weakness –
When You See Me – Walking Backwards
Show Compassion – Your Love Matters

 DANCE     by Ed Englerth 

She danced across the face of the concerns of those who watched. Every time she leapt in the air,  they were certain she would return to Tara. Charles asked her if she’d mine doing that if her daughter was there. She told him these were moves she’d learned from her children.  The weather wouldn’t change, windy and so bright you’d squint without shades. The air was cold and dry, yet her skin seem to offer the atmosphere life as sweat seeped through her clothing with no effort or shame. The rhythm, the beat, the pounding, the screams, the shouts of joy and laughter filled the music, that filled the dance, that filled her soul, that filled her body, that danced across the concerns of those who watched. She smiled as she mobilized the dreams that had lived within.  Now charged, to live out the music that influenced her every thought pattern, she could not help but harmonize with the hammered oscillations.  Yet silence reigned in the hearts of her observers, they would sit or stand or kneel in their vigil of disbelief.  Such stillness as proved an embarrassment, their only thoughts became gapping mouths and reddened faces.  So she danced them all home.  Some to their cars, some to their bikes, some to public transportation, and some she took by the hand and led them back onto their porches.  Later she danced past the shops. She bought a small box of doughnuts and a tea sampler to take home to enjoy with her daughter that evening.  They shared their day each with the other, with smiles and giggles and wishes and hopes for tomorrow.  

Groundswell – by Ed Englerth

Touch the ground – feel the future –
Time won’t stop – till it’s too late
One drop of blood – stronger than hell
There’s the fountain – let’s not wait

//:It’s a ground swell ://

Take a look – dark clouds roll
The curtains ripped – walk on through
Grace touches – you and me
The sky is red – it’s gray and blue

On the hill outside the city – The time tree stands like stone
Blood stained nails, a pool of blood – One can still hear the moans

//:It’s a ground swell ://
//:It’s a ground swell ://

The Longing – by Ed Englerth

Wishing to be compatible – To have his cake n’ eat in peace
Wanting not to wait – To escape this night of grief

Longing to walk in freedom – Longing to trust n love
Longing for a reason – Longing for the renaissance

Bruised n blue – His back is sore n stiff
His fingers touch welts – That cannot be hid  

Longing to walk in freedom – Longing to trust n love
Longing for a reason – Longing for the renaissance

Understanding isn’t mercy – Still lost in his old neighborhood
Nothing’s changed in all these years
New friends for old friends – The future is sold cheap
A slave to his old desires

The world’s secrets – A snare for the fallen n found
A bludgeoned soul laid open – Eyes shut tight he recoils 

Longing to walk in freedom – Longing to trust n love
Longing for a reason – Longing for the renaissance

Suicide – Adrial Englerth-Lanterman

The futility of perfection.  – The insanity of chaos A picture of beauty, fine lines and destruction Purpose lost, the magnitude And over whelming realization of the state of existence Drowns in a sound proof barriers unwittingly constructed  Intensity turns salty tears to blood Aging is propelled by the motivation to cease living Reaching out, crying uncontrollable, Flinging caution to the wind Not desiring compassion, only lonely desolation In this already unforgiving corpse in which I live Decay is lurking around the corner I never thought I’d come to see those eyes The cracks in the ceiling seem to open up to swallow me The walls leer to crush my will to breath Lights shine though my skin Exposing my shriveled soul I am naked without a way to hide from scrutinizing eyes Fear escapes my lips and I am far from ready To receive the daily dose of criticism That greets each morning cup of coffee No sugar, no cream, plain and bitter, Dark and monotonous Preferred to variety,  Solemn distinction and separateness Alone in the insanity Engulfed in the futility  (Save by grace.) 

I’ll Break Though – Ed Englerth

I Heard A Rumor – On The Train Last Night
Never Said “Now Listen Here” – But He Spoke His Mind
Stood Up Against The Wall – Where The Light Was Blue
Although The Stories Sad – He Said “You Can Make It Through”

So I’ll Break Though

I Watch As The Cities Pass By – With My Hand On My Hip
Don’t Bother Asking ‘Round – There’s No Place To Sit
I’ll Finish This Drink – I’ll Remember The Price
It Won’t Be My Last And It’s A Long Dark Ride

But I’ll Break Though

A Train Stop – On Nightly Tour
Sharing Time – Concentrated And Pure
We’re Castaways – With A Place To Meet
With Ticket In Hand – It Cost Everything

I’ll Break Though
I’ll Break Though

Fall of the Wild – by Ed Englerth

The panther walks In the sunshine state To the vanishing point The condos won’t wait Black rhinoceros Are killed for their horn For North Yemen’s daggers They’re almost gone z//:It’s the fall of the wild://  Between Chinese development And the desire for Giant Panda pelts There’s less then a thousand Of these slow breeders left 

Within 50 years One quarter of the world’s Species could be gone Will we destroy the world? Before we see what’s wrong When we talk about living sustainable & how we can take steps of self-management to be able to live on the income not depleting the capital that supplies the income.   The same lesson applies to earth capital that supplies all of life on earth  But short sighted economist would rather kill the goose that lays the golden egg claming human ingenuity & technology will somehow raise the goose back to life.  However human depravity will only strangle it again.  

Soil erosion, deforestation, overgrazing aversely affect productivity in farming, forestry, livestock sectors.  This slows overall economic growth.  These are agriculturally based economies.  And how is it that we fight over oil and yet pay more for water.  There are substitutes for oil.  But with water, there are no substitutes.  With ozone depleting denial we’ll soon all live in the ultra violet zone of reality.  Sunburns, cataracts, skin cancers these are already increasing in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina, & Chile.  Australian TV broadcast daily UV levels so people will know the best days to commit slow-motion suicide.  

I WANT TO CONNECT – by Ed Englerth

The night of nights – A low low tide – Life’s sure long – In this killing fog
Your light passes by – I try not to hide – I try not to stir – It seems like forever

I want to connect – I want your touch – Just one time – Won’t be enough

I want to know who you are -Connect direct – I’ll give all I am – I’ll plead and I’ll beg
At every attempt – It’s gets so intense – Sweat pours through my soul – And yet I’m so cold

I want to connect – I want your touch – Just one time – Won’t be enough

I feel like I’m dead – I want to know you – I want to connect – I need rescued   

I want to connect – I want your touch – Just one time – Won’t be enough
I want to connect – I want your touch – Just one time – Won’t be enough 

Nothing seems right anymore   – by Ed Englerth

I didn’t wake up again this morning – How much longer can this go on
Darkness spills in the doorway – And it’s a long time past the dawn
I’ve suffered through several explanations – Of how love’s to be applied
Old men in the streets – Businessmen and blushing brides –

Nothings seems right anymore – The beach never reaches the shore
The birds fly out where the sky is torn – Nothings seems right anymore

The landscape is so quiet – I can hear every cry and scream
All looking for a place to rest – In this universe of dreams

Nothings seems right anymore – The beach never reaches the shore
The birds fly out where the sky is torn – Nothings seems right anymore

I turned my back on you – Why’d I walk away
I can’t ignore you God – And still keep these windmills at bay 

Nothings seems right anymore – The beach never reaches the shore
The birds fly out where the sky is torn – Nothings seems right anymore

//:Nothings seems right anymore:// 3X  //: Nothings seems right anymore://
