‘Kiss of Death’

If you kiss her

El bes de la mort - The kiss of death - El bes...

Don’t be surprised

By the approaching darkness of the skies

Something evil is looming

The sweetness of those lips so consuming

A taste of sour cherry

The temptation you can’t resist

But beware

And don’t say you haven’t been warned

When you give death a kiss

‘Rails’

Rails, oh tempting rails

Leading your own ways

When I look at you

And the train approaching that was due

I feel the urge, oh so lunatic

To run straight ahead onto your metal sticks

I wonder if it would hurt so much

Or it would be quick and soft as a plume’s touch

I don’t want to die

Please don’t judge me in a blink of an eye

I guess I just need an adrenaline rush

Something more exciting than a high school crush

Everything around bores me, I must say

What seems like ecstasy is a simple rail

So hold me really tight when we’re at the station

Because I may just jump the moment you stop paying attention

‘The girl of the sea’

A wave breaks onto Carmel River State Beach

Wind playing with her hair

Thoughts racing through his head

Sun hiding behind the clouds

 

He’s taking her hand

She drops three tears

Shadows take them in cold embrace

 

She’s changing her mind

He’s waiting with blank eyes

Crow breaks the silence

 

She’s breaking his promise

He’s breaking her heart

Sand covers their feet

 

She turns to kiss him

He tells her he would miss her

The voice says: ‘Sheer lies’

 

She knows it’s true

He pretends he hasn’t heard it

Lightning breaks the skies

 

She pushes him aside

He falls onto the rock

Sea caresses her skin

 

She jumps into the waves

He looks at her half consciously

All remains still in the darkness
