Not Like Anyone Else

Not Like Anyone Else

And as for the void

It’s not afraid to grind us down

Poco y poco

Not afraid to rub our noses

Humble scarlet 

Roses blooming

Valentines breeding 

Prisons of pulsing patterns

In a new wave new wave freedom 

Let’s really change for a change

Like we had all the answers

Solved in a never say never

Do or die kind of way

Slaves of righteousness

All disease free 

And consecrated

You can always fiddle with your bows

Or bring me around

As the thorn offers up

The sweet smelling rose

Say arrivederci 

To the dream gone up her nose

Until the wild irish pain 

Gets surreptitiously froze

You’ve been served

While there’s still half a chance

Go ask alice 

Is a sweet perfume 

Soaked in a moon filled trance

And like all things –

Not like anything else

A rose is a rose is a galaxy

Champagne with the caveat of mystery

So what if you’re heart is broken

It will heal

It will live again

It will rise

And stream like sunlight

Through the land of rock and roll

Once again

Like visions of sugar plums

Opening up in your soul

Like the ridiculous

Bottom line

We’re somehow 

Already supposed to know

Even if they bring us 

Back from the dead

Even if it’s as a “stand in”

For a whole nother show

That must go on:

I celebrate 

What makes you special in my eyes

And like all souls –

Not like anyone else
