  2309.     

We'll be fine tonight

Find all the memories that you once left behind,
Like the moon shining bright,
How you're mine for the night;
Find all the memories that you once left behind,
And we'll be fine tonight, tonight,
Yes, we'll be fine tonight.

Just leave all your troubles somewhere far behind,
And then look for the light,
That was always in sight;
Just leave all your troubles somewhere far behind,
And we'll be fine tonight, tonight,
Yes, we'll be fine tonight.

  2310.     

we're all dead

running your panacea for all that ails;
well run away then, fare well
I would not hold you against your will
in the land of the dead and the home of the still.

once all was bright and lively here;
those were days not to be forgot
and if it's become a graveyard, well you know
the tombstones they won't tell.

take your ringing freedoms, that you crave;
funny I had figured you for brave
but you could never fit words to the song
said you'd never hang around too long.

nothing around here seems to change;
and people may whisper we seem strange
that we're all a bit touched in the head;
that may well be, but you know- we're all dead.

  2311.     

We're All Now Used to Thinking

We're all now used to thinking that we've been set apart
Entirely as ourselves; that none other like us breathes:
That to be a sovereign self, is like any other art;
And our living shell is only by our own soul sheathed.

But things are seldom simple, precise as you've been taught
In school; things alive must share a common linkage, true:
On the substance they depend; and scientists have sought
To show the widely held and most palatable view:

Little macroscopic worlds there would orbit on their own
And scarcely would disturb their close neighbor's solo path.
Each set of lungs; each entity is surely grown alone-
And to say they are dependent is to risk our nature's wrath.

But above there is a firmament of air and water, too
This air moves as a whole, and it fills it sea to sea:
Breathe in, and some fragment of my soul goes into you;
Breathe out, and a little bit of you comes into me.

  2312.     

We're still riding

We're still riding lost days and nights,
Don't have a coin to pay the driver.
Scenes are passing, faces aging,
Sailing down the restless river
Nothing now can ever seem right
On the banks, other days raging..

We're riding high, on things we lost,
Trod them under, never noticing
We swallowed pride and medicine
But forgot to bring the antidote
While others had to count the cost
Of endless wheels, we keep treading..
 
Patti Masterman
