Restless

Restless . . . 

Even when you walk among the shadows of your mind

When your thoughts are chaos across the great divide

The world caves in around you as you pace around your soul

Let your spirit ride the wind, through the shifts of time

You saddle up your iron horse and head out for a ride

The walls are close about you and the worlds getting dim

You can hear the echoed whispers of restless roaming wind

Road lays there inviting as you wonder where am I

The road calls in the silence and its time to ride again

 

Shell never turn you down and shell never turn away

Shell always be there waiting until that final day

The road she is a lover and all times is she a friend

She calls to you to ride upon the lonely winds

 

When the days seem endless and the quiets far away

Smoke on the horizon and thunder drives the day

Lay down the throttle gently until its open wide

On down the open road and across the rolling plain

When you reach the foothills times washed away by rain

So you roll into the mountains and feel alive again

Wind rides upon your shoulder with nowhere else to go

Take the road less traveled in between the now and then

 

She’ll never turn you down and she’ll never turn away

She’ll always be there waiting when you hit the road again

Across the lines of memory and roads of yesterday

She’ll always be there waiting as the sunset ends he day

 

Ever new horizon that passes through your view

Keep the wheels turning each road is travelled new

See the next bend turning as you fly along the ground

Iron horse keeps rolling now lay the hammer down

Endless is the highway as we travel with the wind

Tomorrows just a memory in the road of yesterday

Worn upon the restless heart and shadows of your soul

Shared with those who travel, upon the lonely roads

 

Shell always be there waiting when you roll out for a ride

Just around the corner upon the endless tide

She’ll never turn you down and she’ll never turn away

Even when you take the ride that is your final day.

Her Heart

She rides beside my spirit

Deep calm within the storm

Her presence surrounds me

Embraced within her arms

 

Just behind my eyes she fly’s

First thought that greets the day

There within the rainfall

Within the moons soft rays

 

Her voice, it comes upon me

Soft melody on the wind

Woven now within my soul

She strums my heartstrings low

 

Vibrantly she speaks to me

Touching places hid away

Tomorrows are much brighter now

As her heart resides with me

Two Worlds

Two Worlds

 

One foot here and one foot there.

Places seen where most don’t dare.

The side that sees the winding road

And one that guides the brush.

 

Iron cage and bracelet links

Just aint my cup of tea.

Wish the motherfuckers

Would stop and let me be.

 

Live my life my own way

An’ try to tread on none.

Swing the blade of vengeance

Disguised in artistry.

 

What really does it matter

If I choose to wear a lid.

Life is never safe you see,

No matter what you did.

 

I ride because I have to,

Wind between my teeth

Art the guise that mirrors soul

And what resides in me.

 

Soul that never bowed

To staid conformity

Heart that beats, reddened

Wildly and free.

 

Ride alone or with another.

Miles beneath my feet.

Wind and water, fire and earth

Keeps me in that seat.

 

Paid those dues and all the rest

And pay em twice again.

Not quite crossing far enough

For life in souless pen.

 

Walk along the razor line.

One hand upon the blade.

Touch the knife to taste the ink

In which a life is laid.

 

I ride because of wild love

For places I haven’t been.

High among the peaks

And low across the land.

 

Keep the gas tank full

Leathers close at hand

Through the rainy morning

Or burning sunlit grand.

 

I ride because I have to

Fly both swift and free

Roving like the ancients

Across the lands unseen.

 

So lay me in the corners,

fast and flying low.

Upon an open endless road

Destination long unknown.

Forever unsaid

Sounds of distant thunder

echo through the hills

She’s nothing but a memory

passing under rolling wheels.

 

Trouble fades behind me

as I wander through the land

She is buried in the past now

beyond times shifting sands

 

Alive my soul is flying

life travelled like a leaf

Memories are the treasures

in the past of disbelief

 

Trails through the travels

as time is but a thief

Life is for the living

marked by stones of buried grief

 

Let the engine roll on

as I fly within the sound

Wind sweeps all the cares away

and freedoms to be found

 

High upon the wings of hope

With tomorrow still unfound

Shes buried in the memories

In forgotten sacred ground.

 

Passing through the sunlight

As the shadows ride away

The future is tomorrow

Fading into yesterday

 

The lines upon the highway

Fade beyond the sorrows shade

Her memory a tear track

Where memories are made.

 

The sounds of echoed thunder

Rolling far across the land

Tomorrow is behind me

In the shadow of the sand

 

Silence is the graveyard

In which ones heart is laid

And the journey travels onward

With forever still unsaid.

Restless Road

Restless Road

 

Can you hear it calling,

On the other side of day

Can you hear the wind,

A call to come and play?

 

Restless road is drawing

Whispering my name

Restless road is calling

Within an endless day.

 

Pace the floor and pace again

Through the window glance

Grab the keys and hit the door

Within a moments chance

 

Hear the road a calling

Restless is my name

Following the siren song

Upon the restless breeze

 

Down long road across the plain

Over hills and back again

Through the day and into night

Restless wind untamed.

 

Can you hear it calling?

Restless, free-wind child?

Long restless road is calling

Untamed, unchained and running wild.
