‘The Sea Puts on a Show For Free’

I was fighting with insomnia when I wrote this. Couldn’t sleep. It didn’t help that The Arsenal had lost to the Chavs in a game we deserved to win. It’s at times like these words choose themselves and I keep out of their way.

The death toll is rising
Snowflakes and fire
In the tent of the future
We planned to conspire

You gave me a smile
I got lost in a dream
I haven’t got answers
You haven’t a scheme

One day on the top of death’s channel
We looked down at the ocean’s floor
And like the dying native American
You shouted out, ‘You know, there is so much more’

Holding hands as we jumped from the cliff edge
Down to the still water below
We made sure to remember what the dying man said
‘After fire there is always snow’

Here’s a number from Volume One of my Backing Track collection. It’s called a ‘DIRTY ROCK GROOVE’ – IN A MAJOR’. You’ll find them all at MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL   I hope you enjoy;


If you are looking for the above or any of my songs and instrumentals then you’ll find it to download on BANDCAMP  or you can stream and/or make a playlist of it on SPOTIFY

  1. Arsenal are always winners even when they lose .
    It’s a treat when you write , George. Insomnia does you good . These words you wrote have a poignancy of their own. A beautiful world of their own.

      1. George , George , you can’t lose sleep over a happy game, who knows they will be winning winning winning let’s hope so for your sake at least. What’s going to happen to your music and singing and lyrics and poetry if you go on like this.

      2. It’s mad, I know but it’s hard when you team keep messing up. It’s not just me, all Arsenal supporters are losing the will to live (not actually but you know what I mean). I guess it’s a stupid bloke sort of thing. Thanks ~ George

    1. Thanks and a Happy New Year. I thought you’d gone of the radar. I seem to have been missing updates on my Reader recently. I’m told it’s a WP thing. At least you’re back on the Reader now ~ Zoolon


    1. Thanks. I often wonder where words come from when we aren’t trying to write any. Guess we’ll never know, but its fun whatever. Thanks again ~ George
