Lou, we hardly knew you; L. Reed, RIP

story

On the few and far between reviews I ever get, I’m compared.

More importantly, as irascible as he was, he’s a main influence on me as a writer and vocalist.

Most important, I’m a huge fan, now with a broken heart, for now.

Sad

Vlayman: “2 O’Clock”

2 O’Clock
c. ’13 Vlayman

2:00 in the mornin’, is the time I go to bed
3:00 in the mornin’, is when you begin to mess with my head
mess with my head

CH: 3:00 in the mornin’, you come to me
3:00 in the mornin’, is the only time I ever see you
(anymore)

By 4:00 in the mornin’, baby you is gone
By 4:00 in the mornin’, the only thing I hear is that old wind blowin’

CH 2x:
3:00 in the mornin’, you come to me
3:00 in the mornin’, is the only time I ever see you
anymore
4:00 in the mornin’ is the time that arise
4:00 in the mornin’ and I pretend I wanna get up before the sunrise

Vlayman: “Away the Crow Road “

For the last cabinetpin.com monthly challenge:

Away the Crow Road
c. ’13 Vlayman

Like a scare crow, I stand at the end of the row
You keep seeing me from the corner of yer eye
Keeping yer head low, you can’t help but know
I’m here to help you fly

CH: Away the crow road
If it’s all the same
Away the crow road
Back the way you came

As a young man, you do what you can
You’ve come back for her, it’s written in yer eyes
Once a young man, you hoped I’d understand
But I’m here to help you fly

CH

In the daylight, you are such a sight
Some kinda dark thing, to those of us with eyes
You weren’t born right, you live for the night
I’m here to help you fly

CH2x

Like a scare crow, I stand at the end of the row
You keep seeing me from the corner of yer eye
Keeping yer head low, you can’t help but know
I’m here to help you fly

CH out

The Hungry Drunx w/ Grankspoine: “Shimmy (Like a Rabbit)”

Shimmy (Like a Rabbit)
c. ’13 The Hungry Drunx

Shimmy like a rabbit, sittin’ inna patch of lettuce
Laced with psychadelics, get ready to fall down the hole
You know br’er rabbit he gots him a patch upon his eyes
He wanna be a pirate but he’ll just make you a tasty stew
Shimmy like a rabbit, sittin’ inna patch of lettuce
Laced with psychadelics, get ready to fall down the hole

Aaaah-ooh

Used to be the mad hatter, you was, you know cuz, until you got phatter – it don’t matter, she sez, it don’t matter, at all
Shimmy like a rabbit, sittin’ inna patch of celery
Laced with psychadelics, get ready to fall down the hole
Shimmy like a rabbit, sittin’ inna patch of lettuce
Laced with psychadelics, get ready to fall down for some hole

The Hungry Drunx: “Deja Vu”


Deja Vu
c. ’13 The Hungry Drunx

There is this
But where was that?
And that was there
I’m sure of that

And here was you
And I was there
And she was here
In that old chair

And I saw it all, like ya do
And I see it now, deja vu

And I heard me
As I heard you
And she whispered
Like she do

And came the crash
When it went past
Blood on the wall
Over so fast

And I saw it all, like ya do
And I see it now, deja vu

I smelled iron
I tasted it, too
And you screamed at me
And I laughed at you

And I saw it all, like ya do
I see it now, deja vu
And I saw it all, deja vu

Vlayman: “Wrong (You Would Be)”

Wrong (You Would Be)

You think you know everything about me
You think you comprehend it all, I see
You thing you have everything down

You would be wrong.

You preen and you posture as you walk by
You seem to believe that I’m about to cry
You think   that you can write my song

You would be wrong.

You tell all your friends what they don’t wanna know
You mouth gets a-going and it goes and it goes
You think you can keep goin’ on and on

You would be wrong.
