Bob Dylan - Positively 4th Street (Studio Recording)

Probably my all time favorite Dylan song. This song has been playing thru my mind for the last few days and I just had to see if a video existed so I could post it here. Without a doubt the lyrics really say it all. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

foggy glass

sometimes the winds of change
blow so hard
and things go so far off course
it's impossible to ever return
and reclaim what once was
yet never truly will be again
because of misconception
and assumption
while trying to look thru the eyes
of someone you
no longer know.

weird al one more minute

Sometimes when you're down, only Weird Al can bring a smile to your face. This video is probably my favorite Weird Al song. Catch the back up singers and all the movements they do to the lyrics. If this doesn't bring a chuckle to you consult a shrink because this one is so great. Thanks for watching.

news delivered

the need, so strong,
a need to turn
with nowhere to go
empty hands
empty heart
confused thoughts
crushed ego
life goes on
and no one notices and
no one truly gives a shit.
imagine that!

The Season Of Truth

You came into the world
With a preordained purpose.
You arrived without fanfare
In a place reserved for animals.
You lived a paltry life
With little or no comfort
And died an agonizing death
That others might live and be rewarded with

What a shame so many fail
To recognize your season
As YOUR season
And instead mutate and warp it
To suit their own
Selfish desires and beliefs.

This season, as always
My thoughts turn to you
All those centuries ago
When your birth was announced
By an eastern star.

Thanks for what you have given to us all,
Not just to me and to mine,
But to us all
And thanks for the chance
To follow you.

Merry Christmas!

Delusional # 34

Crowded, yet I'm so lonely,
But it's so quiet.
So much talking,
But I'm remaining silent.
So much happiness,
Yet I'm morose.

You smile that smile that signals
As I remain
With the same frown
I've worn for so long
For reasons you've yet to

You laugh
Your laugh,
Yet I smile my knowing smile,
You accomplished
Yet you think you've won the prize
While all you've really won
Is false victory
And utter defeat.

You gather those five of yours together
Along with your sixth,
And you relay to them
That the despondence that you
Is that of your own creation
And while you celebrate the
Emptiness you so desire
To hold as impressive
And smug,
Is truly a pathetic
That you attempt
To fool so many with
As you hold your head high
While your soul
Sells you out
And reveals your true self:
A pathetic excuse as a human being,
A husband
A Father
And a Son.

Ironically, you're no longer needed
As your masqueraded independence
Does nothing more
Than to prove
What a joke you've created
As your world,
Yet no one else
Other than those close to you
Sheds tears,
Because they have become wise
And accustomed
Your Ways.....

Relative Bearing

Yet assured,
Yet knowing.
With a mind already made up,
Yet knowing most of the answers.
Longing for the anticipated
That awaits so far off in the distance.
Silence breeds
And so many unanswered questions.

Will I play the game to the end?

And if I do,
Who wins?

The clock approaches the arrival
Of yet another day,
And the game plays
