I Am Visible (Monday Monday Song #31)

LYRICS:

I am not invisible. What do you see when you look right through me? Can you see the hounds behind me? Do you recognize the face of my pursuers?

I only want to be seen.

I am not intangible. What do you feel when you push right through me? Can you feel the dreams inside me? Do you recognize the touch of my pursuers?

I only want to be free.

I am not invisible. What do you see when you look right through me? Can you see the hounds behind me? Do you recognize the face of my pursuers?

I only want to be seen.

I go from empty to being full. Hold me now. Make me tangible.
I go from empty to being full. See me now. Make me visible.

I only want to be seen.

Cantor (Monday Monday Song #30)

wpid-cross-by-kmls.jpg.jpegOne of my past joys was to sing the prayers at a church I attended, in the tradition of Jewish cantors and Gregorian chant. The following is a recording of one such prayer.

Call: Lord, in Your mercy,
Response: Hear our prayer . . .

In His Mind He’s A Cowboy (Monday Monday Song #28)

In his mind, he’s a cowboy and he rides the open plain,
Hunting down the bad guys who hide out in his brain.
They’ve been rustling the cattle in the canyons of his mind
And just when he thinks he caught them, they give him the slip one more time.

Every Saturday night, you’ll find him down at Henry’s Steakhouse,
Talking to the plastic cow by the side of the road.
He says it tells him where they’re hiding out
And if he listens close it will tell him where he needs to go.

In his mind, he’s a cowboy and he rides the open plain,
Hunting down the bad guys who hide out in his brain.
They’ve been rustling the cattle in the canyons of his mind
And just when he thinks he caught them, they give him the slip one more time.

He’s got horse named Bill, it’s only a bicycle, but you can’t convince him of that.
He races across the fields, chasing somebody only he can see.
He says his horse has got a bum leg when he’s got a flat.

In his mind, he’s a cowboy and he rides the open plain,
Hunting down the bad guys who hide out in his brain.
They’ve been rustling the cattle in the canyons of his mind
And just when he thinks he caught them, they give him the slip one more time.

Yeehaw! (lead to verses)

Someday he’ll catch them with his invisible rope and then his life’s work will be done.
But for now he’s a skinny man on a bicycle waving his hand in the air
Or a cowboy riding his horse into the setting sun.
Or a cowboy riding his horse into the setting sun.
