Porcelain Doll - Lyrics Only

Porcelain doll with a broken smile
Friend of mine
Sits on a shelf staring vacantly
Not empty

She fears oblivion
She fears chaos and rage
She fears someone broke her smile
Someone broke her smile

Prozac withered tears
Stolen breath delivers night
Drowned a cause (Caressed the light)
Singed the hem of her skirt

She screams of anguish
She screams hell pain
She screams someone broke her smile
Someone stole her smile

Vodka martini (extra dry please)
Coats the blues
Panicked pants strain to break free
Releasing the caged bird that sings

She cries her secrets
She cries nursery rhymes
She cries someone broke her smile
Someone broke her smile

Steals a moment from death (Cheats the world)
Grasping at words on a page
Words on a page emerge from her scars
Not porcelain skin

She’s not a porcelain doll

She dreams of chance
She dreams enlightenment
She dreams of prayer
Speak softly her name

The absurdity
Of the idea of a god
Protecting the soul
Of a madman
Of a madwoman
In love
An idea.

Harley - 15 Years!

For those of you who don't know, my cat Harley has been sick the last few weeks and he finally decided it was time to sleep peacefully. He was 15 years old and he was a true gentleman. He would stand back and let the ladies eat first. He would wait patiently for the stroke of a hand. Now, he is running in the grass with Bubba, Witchy, Houdini & Cody...chasing field mice and swatting at bugs and butterflies...lounging lazily in the sunshine...climbing trees and playing. That is the vision I provided him. Quinn, Thumper and Gizmo and myself and everyone else will miss him. We had some quality time together these last few weeks. Here's to Harley!

Love and peace!
