Take the Helm

Take the helm

In a shaky ship

Overseas

Of the blunder

Under the

Beyond the Nose

Beyond the nose

Of the dogs of democracy

Voluntary crazy

We have come to be

No sight

Or sound

Could bring us back together

Now

Where the differences divide

Has dug in quite far

Full of liquid melted tar

Beyond the nose

Will be more problems

Where our senses

Can’t go

Critic Stare

Critic stare

With certain vision

Free me now

From my own prison

Of words and defeat

Before I meet the road

I am supposed to be on

Renewal Mistakes

Renewal makes a difference

When you are all in

Cast out the doubts

But undoubtedly

Not perfection

Because mistakes

Are the way forward

Don’t overestimate

The destination

When the first step

Is forward

Michigan Heart

I want to know

But I don’t want to understand

How the smoke

Falls from the land

Where I grew up

On the southern shore

Michigan heart

Felt never more

So the gamblers gamble

And the steel men work

The street are empty

The money gone

From a crook

Where I grew up

I want to know

But I will never understand

Rev the Day

Rev the day

everything you have

A little you don’t

Go all the way

Even if you think

You won’t

Don’t back down

On easy premise

Test the limits

Impress

Slow Down Town

Slow down town

Summer heat

Bearing down

All around on a Saturday

Today we need a bit of a relinquish

Relish in a heat

Beyond the hot ground

Around this town

Be Right

Be right

Be arrogant

Belligerent

Cognoscente

Of the words

Used

Be opaque

With answers

Of abuse

Make the proper

Joke

At the proper time

What has happened

Stays behind the line

Be right

Demagogue of sport

Be right

Today

Tonight

Long Breaks

Long breaks

Is what it takes

To reconnect

With the words

That can be off

Or correct

Up in the woods

Or down flat on the deck

Taking these breaks

Is what makes

Me keep coming back
