A man stands resolutely at the door
Of the ranch house in the once-green fields of corn
How long he'll stand there, stoic, no one's sure
He's been there since at least when I was born

He must have knocked or maybe rang a bell
Not sure if houses had bells in those days
The old folks don't remember all that well
They were still young when the flood swept most of it away

We don't ask, though I hear some people dared
And none of them have come back, at least yet
Just stood there at the door with him until they just weren't there
Or maybe they still are, and we forget
The Man At The Door
Inspired by the wonderful world of Welcome To Night Vale.

You may come with passion, dedication, perseverance
and resolve to fight until the very end
I will come with science
and I'll win
With Science
Every single time.

The wheat grain asked the piece of gold
What good are you when they're hungry and cold?
The piece of gold laughed, then replied
They'd die without you, but for me they die

You're still young and you'll soon be gone
So you won't understand
The will to survive isn't all that drives
A man to kill a man

They'll start wars for you if they must
But they start wars for me when they can
And long after you've turned back to dust
I will still be changing hands
Wheat and Gold
A traditional poem, for once.

  • Mood: Stuck
Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come and rest my soul
I dream a highway back to you

John, he's kicking out the footlights
The Grand Ole Opry's got a brand new band
Lord, let me die with a hammer in my hand
I dream a highway back to you

I think I'll move down into Memphis
And thank the hatchet man who forked my tongue
I lie and wait until the wagons come
And dream a highway back to you

The getaway kicking up cinders
An empty wagon full of rattling bones
Moon in the mirror on a three-hour jones
I dream a highway back to you

Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come arrest my soul
I dream a highway back to you

Which lover are you, Jack of Diamonds?
Now you be Emmylou and I'll be Gram
I send a letter, don't know who I am
I dream a highway back to you

I'm an indisguisable shade of twilight
Any second now I'm gonna turn myself on
In the blue display of the cool cathode ray
I dream a highway back to you

I wish you knew me, Jack of Diamonds
Fire-riding, wheeling when I lead 'em up
Drank whiskey with my water, sugar in my tea
My sails in rags with the staggers and the jags
I dream a highway back to you

Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come molest my soul
I dream a highway back to you

Now give me some of what you're having
I'll take you as a viper into my head
A knife into my bed, arsenic when I'm fed
I dream a highway back to you

Hang overhead from all directions
Radiation from the porcelain light
Blind and blistered by the morning white
I dream a highway back to you

Sunday morning at the diner
Hollywood trembles on the verge of tears
I watched the waitress for a thousand years
Saw a wheel within a wheel, heard a call within a call
I dreamed a highway back to you

Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come molest my soul
I dream a highway back to you

Step into the light, poor Lazarus
Don't lie alone behind the window shade
Let me see the mark death made
I dream a highway back to you
I dream a highway back to you

What will sustain us through the winter?
Where did last year's lessons go?
Walk me out into the rain and snow
I dream a highway back to you

Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come and bless my soul
I dream a highway back to you

I dream a highway back to you
Oh I dream a highway back to you love
A winding ribbon with a band of gold
A silver vision come and bless my soul
I dream a highway back to you
