Allow me to go first .......Here's some examples to get things started ...

Waiting Till The End

Lyrics/Vocals By B(Green)Fish(66) For An^3 story

Riding on a wave of information. Someone thought they saw a sign.
Counting all the ways to kill creation. Just Something to pass the time.

It's alright, it's ok, we'll survive...
Yeah we'll be finding all the ways to live forever.
Searching till the end of time.

Yeah,who's to say, what's to come, what will be, what will stay.
Of all the choices to be made. Are they right, are they wrong ....hard to say .
But when your prides been broken.Like all your worth is less than the lie.
what will it take to realize, your alive, your ok, now survive.

It's ok, it's alright..
Yeah we'll be finding all the ways to a solution.
Questioning the limits of the mind.

It's alright, it's ok, i'll be fine.
Just need more time to gather all the information.
Still questioning dimensions of time.

We will be, what we will be.
We will see, what we wanna..
Only time will tell.Hope it screams and yells!
Long before it's almost over....!

It's hard to say.What's to come, what will be...fade away.
Of all the chances we will take.Chasing dreams, based in faith, most are lies.
If this seems dark and faithless.So cruel, brutal and faceless.
What will it take to realize...Your aware,your awake ,your alive?
Yeah , keep saying this, you'll be fine.
It's alright, your ok, your alive.
Take the chance of a lifetime.
It's right before your eyes.

Lyrics/music by. B.(Green)Fish(66) - For An^3

Have you Ever been told, your warmth glows.
And Did you know, your soul is showing.
Right Through your cloths, it radiates .
It's Penetrates right through, this darkness.

It's the strangest thing, but I hear your voice sing.
It carries through the crowds,up above everything.
Up through the clouds, a smile in wave of sound.
A star whispering in an ear, light years from here.

You won't find me on hands and knees.
Searching, lost in hopeless dreams.
when all's said and done.I have no regrets.What's done is done.
Gotta carry on.

Even in the snow (cold), your warmth grows.
You know how I know? Your soul is showing.
The truth that beauty holds, is truly beautiful.
Like the splash of colour over grey, when You spoke my name.
When I'm with you.It Just feels right.
Even in the rain ,wish it'd last forever.
I know you have to go, doesn't matter.Goodbye's are hard to say.
So don't bother...


You won't find me on hands and knees.
Searching,lost in hopeless dreams.
when all's said and done.I have no regrets.What's done is done.
Gotta carry on.move on.

You won't find me down on my knees. Praying for past memories.
What's done is done . Forgive, can't forget.
What's done is done.
No use in holding on.

Absolute Truth

Lyrics and Vocals by B.(Green)Fish(66)/0dds R Evolution


V1

Some will say, that's it's almost over.
There's people out there,like to mix hate with fear.
Out of the darkness ,hear Chaos is screaming .
"Run for the hills..the ending is near.."

V2 

Never inclined to follow the leader?
Yes it's much harder, to make your own way.
Some will try to tear you to pieces .
Gotta pull it together , If you know your ok..

Out of the wild ..and into the clearing ..a calming voice calling ."Your all welcome here.."
All civilized humans ,come now, if you hurry .The Future is yours ..Cuz Your Vision is clear ..."


V 4.

Answer the question ,Find the solution .
The truth is the lost let it all fall away..
Pick up the pieces and put it together..
The past left behind ,future's leading the way
 
Lead in 1 - Oh You know We're all food for the worm 6 feet under the ground...Can only tred water so long before you drowned.

Lead in 2 - Oh You know you can't look at the sun without shielding your eye's...It's an absolute truth ..It's a truth that no one can deny ...


Pre C 1 - Oh You know you can't look at the sun without shielding your eye's...It's an absolute truth ..It's a truth that no one can deny ...


- Oh You know we can't fly to the sun still there's some who will try..Although Odds r evolution still leaves open some room for surprise..


C 1 -

- Creeping ,Crawling, Walking ,Running, Flying , Soaring ..Where you going ?...-

It's amazing that we're here at all , that we're still alive..Although Odds R evolution still leaves open some room for surprise...

No1 wants it all

Lyrics by B.(Green)Fish(66).. Written for An^3....

If more is what you need ,It's what you'll get. .
Till all your wants get in the way, wants you couldn't give away!..
Too often what you see, ain't what you'll get....
Once in a chance, a dream flies by, grab a hold , you can fly awhile.

Feel like your rising up...Like your breaking away, from a world that confines us all..
And on and on it goes.. Yeah so the stories go...
The greatest story ever known... In lies a truth that's never told....

Are we breaking free?....Are we spinning away, from the center that grounds us?. .

Well Do you want it?.. Here it is, right before your eye's ...
Do you want it all ?...You can have it all..
The senseless violence, raped to silence, right before your eye's.....
Do you really want it all ?....No one wants it all!.....

And on and on it goes ..To where? Noone really knows .
Can loose ourselves amongst the stars..
Home will weigh heavy on our hearts..

Are we gaining ground ?.. Are we falling apart ,from the wholeness that holds us ?

Yes you look confident, but watch your step, there's fire in those eye's..
Do you want it all ? You can't have it all.....
Dime bags to Diamonds..wars and riots ,(it's) gone political.....
Do you really want all?...No one wants it all...
It's here if want it.. Have to grab it .It's right before your eye's.....
Do you really want it all?.... You can't have it all .
A lot have tryed, but failed to find, what was right before their eye's .
No noone really wants it all....You wouldn't want it all........

Close your eye's , and spin free.
Free your mind, till you fall from the clouds .
Safe again, on steady ground .
and ..On and on it rolls , as a rock becomes a stone.
Like pebbles turning into sand ....blown through the fingers of a hand ....
-------------------------------------------------
 
.......Alternative ending .

....and on and on it goes ..so the stories go .. all the greatest stories ever told ..No they never do get old.


(until, of course ,the story ends .!!! )
When no ones left to read it ,..till noones left to listen ..and as for the truth no one may ever know....

Just what I've been told...

ReSin Essence (The view from Out here )

Lyrics By B.(Green)Fish(66).. for An^3

 

Pins and needles pierce the skin .. First time in years.
Lights and buttons, Awake the world from way up here.
Last Transmission , have but minutes for a lifetime .
The mission was successful..at times stressful
, but ,I'm here! I made it


Now that I know we're more than what we are.
I'll Race you to the farthest star.
I'll meet you there.
Bet I can beat you there.

We can stare off to our favorite star.
I feel you close , Though home is far away..

Will you stay awhile? Just lay here awhile.

.... It's so Beautiful, Peaceful,.....Dead calm,.... Dead silent ,
....cold darkness .Get's lonely ,but I'm alright.

It's Good to know your always with me !
Forever, and Ever
In the Resin Essence.

Your strength shows in the way you hold your head up high .
The years and sorrow haven't worn out your smile.
Sometimes I still feel, like I let you down...

It was good to hear your voice again.
It was good to hear that you understand.

The view From here ..Man.. It is truly Beautiful , so Peaceful .
......Dead calm,...... Dead silent ,......cold darkness
.......get's lonely,

It's good to know , your always with me , In the Resin Essence...

If we Follow our dreams we can touch the stars.
Keep lookin up and The futures ours.


From the infinite to the infestimal ...

know I miss you.....
Hope your Having fun
Tell everyone
I miss them .
Not to worry, about me.
I'm alright .
I know your safe, and have a good life.
So I'm alright ,it's ok. I'll be fine.

Oh You know I never could say good bye
Cuz forever's forever so why even try..

So From the here ,and now...Let me leave you
With ,this song ,and a smile....
 
 
Till next time.
Over and out there ..From here...

( Well what would you say to that special someone .To the people back on Earth ..If you were the first space traveler ...and only had one last, 5 minute transmission ? ..)

You might ask ...So What is the Resin Essence?

It is what it is .Use your imagination ..Be creative ...


An^3 story will be available in the future...Hopefully sooner rather than later...It's in the long finalization process ...But it IS coming ..

Dead in the water
It's not a paid vacation
The sons and daughters
Of city officials attend demonstrations
It's hardly sink or swim
When all is well if the tickets sell

Out with the whimper
It's not a blaze of glory
You look down from your temple
As people endeavor to make it a story
And chisel a marble word
but all is lost if it's never heard

But I've got someone to make reports
And tell me how my money's spent
To book my stays and draw my blinds
So I can't tell what's really there
And all I need's a great big congratulations

I'll keep your dreams
You pay attention for me
As strange as it seems,
I'd rather dissolve
Than have you ignore me
The ground may be moving fast
But I tied my boots to a broken mast

The difference is clear
You throw it in your cauldron
Rust and veneer, dusk and dawn
Steinways and Baldwins
you start with a simple stock
of all the waste and salt to taste

But damn my luck and damn these friends
That keep on combing back their smiles
I save my grace with half-assed guilt
And lay down the quilt upon the lawn
Spread my arms and soak up
"Congratulations" - MGMT

I love this song...really gets me thinking

0dds are Evolution.( "The Great Wild".).....

Lyrics By B.(Green)Fish(66.) for 0dds R Evolution


Quote "......Gotta give it your best..Never give it all..
Enjoy what you have...Or you'll never know till it's gone...."



Tired of playing games .. so Bet it all...
Took a big risk ,Turned and walked away..
Ah it's better that way, It's better that way ...

Take a chance..The rise and falls.
Gotta pick yourself up, Gotta keep movin along...
Ah it's never too late..it's never too late...

Have your hopes been frozen?,Dreams seem shattered?
Should have noticed by now it' a cold cold world..
It'll freeze your heart and soul if you let it.
With a chill to the bone,..isolation finds a hole.... !(home)

If your always afraid that the sky is falling..
Then your gonna find out it's a crewl, crewl world..
It'll rip and tear you apart..if you let it..
If you dig the hole, you know the way out..


Ya your Catchin fire .. Piss'n gasoline ..
1st on the scene .. you knew it was comin', oh yeah.
Now you'll make it your way, it's better that way..

Won your pride.. you can have it all!
Just keep in mind..where you get it all from.....
As your breakin away..don't throw it away, hey

Yeah You know what you want..Do you know how to get it?
Don't be foolin yourself , It's a great big world.
It'll push, pull you apart if you let it.
Sharp twisted turns,warp minds, spin heads around..

If your always afraid that sky could come crashing down...
Then your gonna find out it's a crewl n brutal world..
It will turn you inside out..if you give in..
So Just stand your ground ,things will turn around

Come around ..Circle round...Cycle round,,Spinning round..
Things will change...Times will change...Time for change...It will change..So you don't have to ..Till you have to .....

Gotta give it your best... Never give it all...
Enjoy what you got..Or you'll never know till it's gone

--------------------------
.......................Ah it's never too late ..It's never too late to change...change, but you don't have to ..till you have to. change...change..............

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To the Edge

Lyrics and Vocals by B(Green)Fish(66) For 0dds "R" Evolution

You know what I would do..
I'd cross this universe to be with you..
It's all those things you'd say that we'd do..
That has me walking miles, like I often do, in a daze..
To get through this emptyness...
Calming Darkness ....
Embracing lonliness ..
I think of you......
Like I so often do..


After all that we've been through .
It's still so hard to live without you....
Although, I know, deep down that it's true .
I hold this dream, promise not to forget you..
Oh How can I ?
Gotta find a way, there's gotta be a way.....
Out of this abyss,through the thick of it ,To the presipice .
To be with you...
So Close to you ...

Thinking Twice

Lyrics By B.(Green) Fish(66) For Sang-Freud/Greend


In my head , no it's not the same, as in real life..
Took some time for me to realize, it's got me Thinkin' Twice..
Always wondering what tomorrow will bring, keeps me up at night..
Always thinking about everyone, and everything in my life....

Seems everything, ain't what it seems ..
Is nothing the way that it used to be..?

I'm coming to terms, with a part of me, that's changing..
(Am I) Coming apart(?) ..
(Is It) Falling apart(?)..
Something,
Tearing apart , a part from me ..
Ripping ...
A part of me,
fading away..

Gotta keep a grip ..
Hope I'm not loosing it...

- Say, Originals are Crazy ..Until they become the mainstream...-

How do we grow together?...Without falling apart forever?

How do we:
keep apart from everything ?
Still keeping a part of everything ..?
Keep the peace with everything ?
Still Keep a piece of everything..?
Some peace (Piece)of mind ?
An open mind..?
Know what's mine, In space , In time...?
Try to live with it..?
Get away with it..?
Without loosing it..?
Drifting away..
Without giving away,
everything to someone else?

Becoming, someone else ,
Completely(?)...
Afraid of loosing"me".....

Hoping that it matters..Hoping things get better...

If I have to change everything about Myself ...I 'd rather be , By Myself..
If I have to change everything about Myself ... I'd rather be, By Myself...
If I have to change everything about Myself ... I'd Rather be, By Myself...

Well , I try to keep an open mind...
Try to keep control ...
Try to hold it all together ...
Body, Mind and Soul ...

If I have to change everything about Myself ...I 'd rather be , By Myself..
If I have to change everything about Myself ... I'd rather be, By Myself...
If I have to change everything about Myself ... I'd Rather be....

CRAZY!!!?!!!





Gotta know where/who you were... Where/who you are now... Before you can get where, you now, wanna go ..

Know where you stand, yet keep mindful of change..Be open to change/Accept the change, if you know you are wrong..

Where do you stand?..

Somewhere inbetween the infinitesimal and the infinite..

It Is all about balance/sustainability..Non?

So

..Welcome to the Human condition ..






----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Underground

Lyrics by B.(Green)Fish(66) for Sang-Freud/Greend

Well it getting late..
Think it's time to go ...Cuz I can see straight..

Oh it's been another long day , an even longer night , but everything went alright...

Sound was good tonight..

All these years...
Still around..
Always been here..
Underground..
Underground..
Here to stay ..
Your welcome to come around...
If you can find your way..

Well it's been 10 long years through blood, sweat and beer,
just tryin' to get the music right ..

Can we save rock and roll,
save our immortal souls,
before we burn out or fade away?

We've had a lot of good times,
And we're still feelin' fine...
Think it's in us to do it again..

Played heavy Metal to Death,
Passed out cold, lost my breath.
Been through hell fires and back again..

Been on the stairway to heaven..
Took the highway to hell..
Still our road ain't paved with gold ..

How much farther(futher) to go ?..
By the time we get there,
afraid that all our dreams will be sold..

Well it's too late to stop now.
Besides, we wouldn't know how.
There's not much else we know how to do..
So we'll keep belting it out..
We'll keep pushing ahead..
Until we sell out ..Or end up dead...

Underground,
Still around...
All these years,
we're still here..
Down, not out ...
In our hole..

HOME SWEET HOME...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



iITt is what it is...
So hope you enjoy this W.I.P ..(Work in progress)

Everything is Energy and Information ......The rest is recyclable waste...


Peace or pieces?

Peace...

Over and out there from here...

THE GUEST HOUSE POEM - BY Jelalludin Rumi


The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.


-- Jelaluddin Rumi,
translation by Coleman Barks

Ron's Story - by me

As an example of how people accept the traditional views of our society without question, I like to recall the story of Ron Whitman. Ron’s story usually brings up strong emotional reactions, all of which are based on unquestioning socially accepted views about death and our bodies.
I met Ron in 1972, when I first moved to Cottonwood, on the Barkerville highway, twenty miles east of Quesnel, B.C. Ron lived at Wingdam, an abandoned mining town farther up the highway. When I first met him, I was annoyed at how fast he talked. Then I noticed there was a strange sort of struggle in his voice. I later learned he had been caught between a loading ramp and a truck, his body being nearly severed in two. Somehow he had been patched back together and he had lived for the past thirty years or so in excruciating pain. He was so happy to be alive that he wasn’t going to let it get him down. He never once mentioned it or complained. His strange manner of speaking was his way of overriding the waves of pain.
Ron lived in a shack with four half-wolf dogs. He told us on several occasions that if he should die, he wanted his dogs to eat him - his last gift to them. On Christmas day, 1973 a group of us planned a large feast near where he lived. A friend, Rick, was supposed to pick Ron up and bring him over. When Rick arrived he informed us that Ron was in the process of fulfilling his last wish - his last Christmas present to his faithful companions.
We all gathered about the banquet table, raised a glass of wine in honour of Ron’s spirit and wished him peace and rest at last. His painful ordeal was over. He died as he wanted to, in his own home, as humble as it was, and he was able to fulfill his last wish. We were all happy for him. What more could a man ask for.
Three days later we informed the authorities. They were not impressed. They were quite upset that we knew of his death all along and to show their dissatisfaction they made sure Ron was also the dogs’ last meal. We all knew this would happen. So did Ron. Nobody could have been able to handle those half wild dogs, especially after they had tasted human flesh. But that was not the point.
It had long occurred to me that funerals were a bizarre and barbaric ritual. Humans are the only species that do not return to the earth what they have taken from it. Stuffing our bodies in hermetically sealed boxes or burning them to ashes prevents us from natural decomposition. All other living things fertilize new growth upon relinquishing their life force. We basically short-circuit the food chain by setting ourselves above it and removing ourselves from it. Ron knew this.

The liquor was spilled on the bar room floor
And the bar was closed for the night,
Out from his hole, came a little gray mouse
and sat in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the liquor on the bar room floor
And back on his haunches he sat
All night long you could hear him roar
BRING ON THE GOD DAMN CAT

What, me worry?

I’ve heard it said that a paranoiac is someone who is in possession of all the facts. Of course no one is in possession of all the facts. In fact, I think that facts are about as reliable as the truth, which is only relative to the beholder. Paranoiacs, like optimists and pessimists, are very selective about the information they focus on.
They remind me of the person who said they felt that the universe was crapping on their head - and from a great height at that. My only remark was “Who do you think you are that the universe would bother.”
The ego is a cruel task master. It has us chasing our tails and looking over our shoulders, waiting for the next shoe to drop at the same time. If I had to live like that I would have to seriously consider getting off the planet. As one person put it to me, “You’re born, you pay taxes and then you die. You may as well shoot yourself now!”
One of the things that sustains me is knowing that this whole thing we call status quo reality is nothing but an illusion. Beyond our microcosmic view of reality lies something much more wonderful, more fantastic than any philosophy or religion has come up with. It is certainly much more than the doom sayers of politics and the media keep babbling about.
If you look around you at the hard evidence that is being presented - the facts - you will find plenty to be paranoid about. But reality is much more than what we perceive with our physical senses.
Rocks and steel are not solid. Our bodies are not susceptible to the ravages of disease and old age. Our minds are capable of more than just linear thought.
“What the heck is that loony goin’ on about now, Martha?”
Basic physics! The world, our reality is made up of tiny particles called atoms. Each atom is made up of protons and neutrons orbiting around a nucleus. The space between these tiny particles is so vast that if the Earth could be compressed so that nothing was left but the actual matter, we could put the entire planet in a tea spoon.
The solid state of a rock is an illusion created by our belief that it is solid. The energy that causes atoms to rotate, whether it is in a rock or your brain is the same.
Our bodies are composed of one main ingredient - energy. The main thing that keeps it working is consciousness. If the consciousness is functioning unimpeded by stress, anger or fear the organism is designed to exist indefinitely. However, the body is highly influenced by our emotions and our belief systems. One of our biggest beliefs is that we grow old and die. The evidence is all around you. Death and disease are a fact of life, right?
Only if that is what you believe! Of course we die. If you live on this planet at this time and you even have the slightest inkling of what is going on, you will be so stressed out and pissed off that you will give yourself a heart attack.
But who’s reality are you looking at? We are so busy looking anywhere else but at ourselves that most likely you are looking at somebody else's reality, who is busy looking at somebody else's reality - ad infinitum, that nobody sees reality at all. They are just looking at illusions and frightening the crap out of themselves.
Besides, who would want to live forever when reality is such a scary place most of the time?
Our brains were designed for thought. It is one of humankind’s greatest evolutionary accomplishments, right? What if there was something that is more effective than thought? What if thinking is what got us into the mess we seem to be in? What if we stopped thinking for a moment? Turn off the old brain pan. Stop worrying if we can pay the bills, buy that new food processor, get junior into the high brow preschool.
Shut up brain!
Wouldn’t what we see, smell and hear suddenly become more intense? Without all that inner chatter, would not the world start to seem a more wonderful place to experience?
If you gave up all your judgments, opinions and grudges against others, wouldn’t others begin to look like friends rather than enemies or competitors? Wouldn’t your mate start to resemble the person you fell in love with, rather than the old fart you think they are now?
A change in perspective is far more refreshing than a month in Los Vegas or Jamaica and it costs a lot less! You don’t have to worry about the payments or losing your baggage and you get to see the world in a whole new light.
Linear thought - Screw it. Intuition is where it’s at. Try this exercise: Sit in a chair with your eyes closed and really listen to the thoughts bouncing around inside your skull. Do this for about five minutes or until you just can’t stand it any more and have an overwhelming urge to change the channel.
Now, put on a piece of your favourite music, crank it up so it drowns out the noise in your head and focus as hard as you can on the sound. Feel it wash over and through your body. Feel the vibration of the sound as it hits different parts of your body. See the images the sound invokes in your minds eye.
Is this more fun than sticking a hot poker in your eye, or what? Stress, worry, negative emotions - hot poker. Music, relaxation - Good! Poker - Bad!
Is anybody out there? Is anybody in there?
‘Til next time - do whatever it takes to shut that damn thing off once in a while. You may discover something new about yourself (who ever that is!)

Here's some of my own additional lyrics to Hallelujah

I see you walking down the street.
In the past ,we'd always meet.
but you don't know me anymore, now, do ya?
All the times I'd hold you tight.So close to me, keep you warm at night.
Now, I'm so cold, it's a lonely Hallelujah...
Hallelujah...
Hallelujah...
Hallelujah,...
Hallelujah...
