Thoughts

What happens to a thought
suppressed?
Does it keep coming back
Like a ghost in a dream?
Or complain like a madman
and then scream?
Does it stink like sweat
and cling like dirt
to your body?
Or perhaps it dissolves
like sugar in coffee.
Or maybe it implodes
quietly.

Chatter

Just when I thought
there wasn't any thought
or thoughts in my head,
It suddenly came to me,
just call it my theory.
Truly, it is living
the way meditators live,
by their own intuition.
Well, I will tell you
it wasn't easy, I admit,
but I had an inkling of it
of what it would be like,
From eating sandwiches
or working at the factories
or drinking hot coffee
at the local cafeteria,
daydreaming now and then,
or worrying about my weblog.
I wouldn't think so much
about young children
and old men and women
except in a certain way
expected by our society.
Rather, I'd let things
be how they are...

Dream On

Been travelling this road for so long
My eyes are tired but I carry on
The sun lays down it's golden threads
I need a place to rest my head
Although I am far from home now
My soul's with you
It's hard to be out here on my own
So far away, so far from home
I need to touch and feel your skin
To live this dream in sleep again
Although I am far from home now
My soul's with you
So dream on, dream on
Freedom comes with timeless sleep
Dream on, dream on
In the arms of night
Your silent shadow gently speaks
Dream on, dream on
This hotel room's a lonely place
It's a one night cell I must escape
So I drink away my loneliness
So I can sleep and dream again
Although I am far from home now
My soul's with you
And as I fall into
The darkness of the night
You come to rescue me to
Shield me in your light
I feel your touch
The softness of your skin
You hold me close before
The day breaks in
This dream's so true
My heart it beats, it beats
It beats for you, for you
Although I am far from home now
My soul's with you
So dream on, dream on
Freedom comes with timeless sleep
Dream on, dream on
In the arms of night
Your silent shadow gently speaks
So dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on
So dream on, dream on
Dream on

--lyrics of Dream on, Uriah Heep
