Men I Trust Curious Fish

Glass too thick couldn’t see through,

I’ve been waiting something new

But it felt true

My heart is true

Curious fish sought distant light;

Shiny trophies caught its sight

I fell to love

I’m fond of love

As if limestone wore my heed,

It seemed fair to trust this lead

But it felt true

My heart is true

Blushing means I know too well

Fish meets light from its lone shell

I fell to love

I’m fond of love

Men I Trust Seven

In the shadows he saw four eyes, lit by fire… fire

He’d never done that with a lover, before… before

Meanwhile everyone else got lost in quiet, by the rivier

Seeking for more, of course he found better… better

He saw them, they saw him

But everyone just kept on going

What he saw was different

He should have gone to bed

But instead he stuck around for the mood

In the shadows he saw four eyes, lit by fire… fire

He’d never done that with a lover, before… before

Either early or too late, it was number seven… and it happened

High like a bird with his beak through the window

He saw them, they saw him

But everyone just kept on going

What he saw was different

He should have gone to bed

But instead he stuck around for the mood

He saw them, they saw him

But everyone just kept on going

What he saw was different

He should have gone to bed

But instead he stuck around for the mood

Men I Trust Out In Myself

In need of some time out

A haven for insight

Mind a self-aware thought

In dread cabalist night

Relax

Are those thoughts sincere?

I Relax

My inner tone is clear

Relax

Are those thoughts sincere?

I Relax

Rare witness of my sphere

Loves I found delightful

Poised in any likely way

Pulses I know are joyful

They never caused dismay

I hear a standing rumble

In expansion and contraction

Our mutual awe is subtle

Delicate in higher action

Relax

Are those thoughts sincere?

I Relax

My inner tone is clear

Relax

Are those thoughts sincere?

I Relax

Rare witness of my sphere

Men I Trust I Hope To Be Around

I hope to be around

The day we grasp in truth

The nature of mind

Befriending time, in truth

In a midway I stand where many stood

Only to come home again

Walking through these streets I know too well

But my thoughts stray away

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

Without any end

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

In truth

I wonder at this light

Enclosed in our soul, in truth

And bid our clay remain,

Soft as it is, in truth

In a midway I stand where many stood

Only to come home again

Walking through these streets I know too well

But my thoughts stray away

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

Without any end

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

In truth

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

Without any end

I dream of my future

Remote from time bounds

Becoming myself

In truth

Men I Trust Show Me How

Show me how you care,

Tell me how you were loved before

Show me how you smile,

Tell me why your hands are cold

I’m turning around,

I’m having visions of you

But then I understand

The friend I’m dreaming of is far away

But I’m here… I’m here

Show me how you’re proud,

Tell me how you reach the moon

My thoughts err away tonight

My heart fell to love again

I’m turning around I’m having visions of you

But then I understand

The friend I’m dreaming of is far away

And doesn’t feel my love

But I do… I do

Men I Trust Morse Code

Morse code

Night loots us of our time

Hints of defeat through me

Yielding to one final pun,

And shared flashing glaze

But our will stays cloaked

As we take a step back

Our hearts talking low

A fading Morse code

Quick! Says a darting bird

Fierce is nature’s way

Trophies bared up high

Strong men do have firm grips

And though I seize the high-prized advise

Distracted by labor and wraiths

Can’t set my mind with it

Keeping me away from heap

And our will stays cloaked

As we take a step back

Hearts talking low

A fading Morse code

Men I Trust Say, Can You Hear

Say, can you hear?

Is there a meaning to your grief?

Where there is pain you see grace

As if sacrifice was meaningful and in itself

Your trial and error is error and error

Staying at the end of a hallway

Dozens of doors you never tried to open

Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat

Try to fix things that have never been

You’re self-absorbed

Raving about your cryptic ways

Aren’t willing to change

Old grudges

Hoping for your turn

All the basement stories you heard

Waiting for the world

To bend around you

Staying at the end of a hallway

Dozens of doors you never tried to open

Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat

Try to fix things that have never been

Waiting for the world to bend around you

Waiting for the world to bend around you

Staying at the end of a hallway

Dozens of doors you never tried to open

Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat

Try to fix things that have never been broken

Men I Trust Introit

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,

Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion,

Et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem.

Exaudi orationem meam,

Ad te omnis care veniet.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,

Et lux perpetua luceat eis.
