Reed- Isolation Tapes

Wind he captured the wind 

And bent it to his will 

He seemed storied 

He seemed stable 

'n the melodies he built 

He took me 

Yes he took me 

And he laid me in the dirt 

And he wrote his notes upon me 

Did it hurt?

Did it hurt? Mmmmm did it hurt?

Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Mmmmm did it hurt?

Music changes but ne’er does sin 

And I wonder if this could be the wind he’s piping in 

And the mystery is that I long and dread to see him again 

Waking he kept me waking  

every waking hour  

He's faking  

He has to  

Look at all these wild flowers  

He picked me  

Yes he picked me  

Then he laid me in the dirt  

And he wrote his notes upon me  

does it hurt? does it hurt? does it hurt?

Mmmmm did it hurt? did it hurt Mmmmm?

yes it hurt it hurts it hurt...

which piper calls me to the Throne 

Will I stumble and crawl on my way home 

Music changes but ne’er does sin  

And I wonder if this could be the wind he’s piping in  

And the mystery is that I long to see him again 

Did it hurt? 

Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Mmmmm did it hurt? 

Did it hurt? Did it hurt?

Mmmmm did it hurt? Did it hurt?

 

Disturbing Thoughts- Cellar & Sky

woke up to disturbing thoughts today 
but instead of sitting with them I doused myself in the 
unimportant thrills the web sent my way 
this cycle can’t continue I know it can’t continue 

so I’ll 

share with you a dream I had 
though I fear it shines a light 
but fear just keeps the love from showing 
and it stops my soul mid flight 

in my dream I met a man I know 
and he did things to make me cry 
I did things that made me question 
who I really am inside 

in my vision I was shamed there 
said I did not what I should 
he said I know that what you say is right my dear 
but what we did it felt so good 

I was trapped in passion prison 
you the closest thing I had 
you gave in in the moonlight 
now you are stuck here as I am 

note the mirrors all around this maze 
they reflect your walls 
the only way to free yourself 
is to forget yourself and push on 

I ask you 
please note the mirrors all around this maze 
they reflect your walls 

the only way to free yourself 
is to forget yourself and push on 
the only way to free yourself 
is to forget yourself and push on

Not the Only One - Cellar & Sky

I don't even know what I'm doing

I've been searching for the answers all this time

and every time I felt I was closer now

I puled back and fell down 

fell down

 

then I’d push back on everyone and thing I couldn’t see 

under attack I’d feel though blind that I could still see clearly 

and I’d fight so many battles I’d loose the wars I thought I had won 

you’re not the only one 

 

I find it so hard to tell 

what is real and what I've made my personal hell 

what I want and what I need 

and which signs are telling me what things 

 

so I push back on everyone and thing I just can't see 

under attack I feel though blind that I can still see clearly 

and I fight so many battles I loose the wars that I think I have won 

you're not the only one 

 

I still feel small when I stand beside the ocean 

I still get down when I don’t feel true forward motion 

but I'm learning I’m still learning 

learning what how who I'm supposed to be 

listening I'm still listening 

and still sometimes I can't hear anything 

 

I know God has guided me and knows all that I’ve done 

but If there’s one thing I’m sure of its this 

I’m not the only one 

its this I’m not the only one 

its this I’m not the only one

My Dreams- Cellar & Sky

My dreams  

they did not last 

much like the monsters in my past 

they fade from view 

You 

try to decide if I  

am worth running that fast  

to catch up to 

 

we both come to same conclusion 

we take time we don’t own 

and we vacillate and misconstrue  

and feed the weeds  (at home)  

and cry when flowers grow 

 

I didn’t want to see the sun 

It reminds me of the path I should have chosen 

I don’t want to see the flowers 

they remind me of the hours I spent doubting my pen 

 

My time 

 didn’t much use its self 

and I didn’t claim much wealth 

but I survived 

But You 

You didn’t come to hear 

all that this fear has done  

for me in my life 

 

we both come to same conclusion 

we take time we don’t own 

and we vacillate and misconstrue  

and feed the weeds at home 

we watch them grow 

 

I didn’t want to see the sun 

It reminds me of the path I should have chosen 

I don’t want to see the flowers 

they remind me of the hours I spent doubting my pen 

with fears best friend

Conversation- Cellar & Sky

steady the course now 

make it look easy  

as long as theres effort there 

you’re not wrong 

wake up at dawn tide 

the land is on fire 

hear the endless conversation tween the city and the sky 

 ooo 

I love yoooou 

wrap me up in your faded blue 

oooo  

where were you 

I was cold and joined by the wreathed moon 

 

dreaming gets easy 

waking comes hard 

so you sleep through the mysteries  

playing around your atrophied heart 

  

and all of a sudden  

you’ve aged a day 

with nothing to show for 

the time passed away 

ooo 

I love yoooou 

wrap me up in your faded blue 

oooo  

where were yooou 

I was cold and joined by the wreathed moon

The Stuffed Ones- Cellar & Sky

Verse1: 

I could be a couch potato  

I’ve done it before 

I could tell you that I’ll be here then  

just walk right out the door  

I can see no way that this will ever end 

Still I will always be your friend 

Verse2: 

I have written poems in the sand by the house  

that only you have read 

the best of secret keepers once done you’d blot them out  

so no one else could read what I said 

PRE CHORUS: 

And when we do part  

I know not where you’ve gone  

Soo I just  

sit here on your dresser and wait for you to come home! 

CHORUS: 

You and I, You and I You and I 

You and I have always been buddies 

You and I  You and I You and I  

You and I solve mysteries alone 

VERSE3: 

I could be a captain of a ship we sail  

to liberate our crewman who is stuck in Jail 

And You’ve got superpowers and see through walls  

 and together we rescue all 

        

PRE CHORUS: 

and next we’ll fly to Mr Mar’s  

and find that Marcians play guitars 

and our space boat floats on by  

so we listen and we wave saying see you next time 

 

Capo 2nd Fret 

those stars they fall and the moon wraps around your fingers 

my words seem small  

And February feels cold here 

my tears run dry and I surender to the ordinary 

signs of life 

in search of self  

look deep

deep in shallow caverns made for my captivity  

 

I won’t run to shelter I won’t fall asleep 

in my shadow in my shadow I see demons and defeat 

and I won’t turn from sunlight though the dawn shows me the pain 

I will put those things beside me let them wash away with the rain 

 

I say love you and the silence echoes in this room 

Its understood not the same  

your eyes give me the answer there’s nothing you can say 

 

people I don't know the names of  

places I can't see the face of  

all I have is here right now 

but stepping to the ledge I found that I could not yet see the ground  

but there is no where left to go
