Fantasy War

The elves and their wicked swords stand ready
next to the dwarves and their hammers,
hammers with names like “Skull Crusher” and “Bone Breaker,”
all the unicorns have blood in their manes and on their horns,
and the fairies gnash their teeth and sharpen their nails.
This is fantasy. This is war.

Halloween Special - 2014 (spontaneous song/story) - Phillip J Rhoades

Lyrics:
Long ago,
when things were still finding their shapes,
On a dark night,
a storm spilled over the land.
Lightning shattered trees
thunder knocked over hills
and this is where our story starts

Darkness crept in
under the door
seemed to live
in the cracks of the floor

A shadow that moved
slithered and wound
up the walls
up the walls and around

Closer it came
up to his bed
Up, up, up

It looked at the child
and murmurs it said,
“I’m the dark,
I’m the night,
I’m the storm,
I’m the terrible things,
I’m the monsters and creatures
All the slimy things!
And what can you,
what can you,
what can you, little thing, do
against the monsters,
the night,
the dark in the world?”

Close it closed,
closer on him,
seemed to be pulling the light
to the ground.

And then the boy let out
a pure sound
Laughter, laughter, laughter
hahahahahahahahah
Shattered the dark
broke into pieces,
a thousand candles
breaking the dark.

He laughed and he laughed
and the shadow did run,
back to the floor boards,
back to the door,
and the darkness,
the darkness was done!

The little boy knew
he knew a secret, ya know?
The darkness, the terrible things
the monsters,
they’re just jokes,
fools being foolish,
just sanity’s ghost.

Pulled his covers up tight,
giggled again,
and found his way to dreams

The Tide Isn’t That Strong - 2014 - Phillip J Rhoades
A song about taking control of your own life.

Lyrics:

She never knows where to go
She never knows where to go with her life
Drifts down city streets
Caught in the stream of other dreams
pulled by the current of other lives

She never knows where to go
She never knows where to go with her life
Drifts down city streets
Caught in the stream of other dreams
pulled by the current of other lives

Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms and swim
The tide isn’t that strong

Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms and swim
The tide isn’t that strong

She never knows where to go
She never knows where to go with her life
Drifts down city streets
Caught in the stream of other dreams
pulled by the current of other lives

Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms and swim
The tide isn’t that strong

Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms
Stretch out your arms and swim
The tide isn’t that strong

She never knows where to go
She never knows where to go with her life
Drifts down city streets
Caught in the stream of other dreams
pulled by the current of other lives
