Benjamin Blue Jazz

My fingers ache, pulsate, and I clench with visible nerves.
Again, I push the rusty harmonica to my lips and the pack is hushed.
My pinky fingers are twitching as I play my starting notes
The melody is hollow but I mean for it to be.
They're all glaring with their innocent eyes. Now I sigh and sing:

He's a-comin' sinners,
The trumps' will sound,
A-riding the silver cloud,
Ain't no one can hide.

The final notes shake, employed hurriedly for my purpose.
My dry fingers nervously sliding and pinching together,
I know these college kids have money, I know they do, I know they do.

Ammm Lord I'm-a sing,
Blue dawns a-breakin'
Ammm Lord I'm-a weep
Broken soul you's takin'

They judge me because I'm homeless,
Because I lay crack, my skin, the white-powder, my sin.
My shedding nails and red eyes are thirsty for more,
They don't know me, no, no, no I'll prove they are wrong:

My sistah's brother a-broken,
Cocaine hunger claimin' this; his soul.
To the devil or against it He, I stand
Lord help me mend our broken soul.

Nathan Matthew and Benjamin My 3 Sons

No amount of gold could ever compare, to the gift of love that my sons share
I've been blind and I couldn't see that all the love
I've wanted is right here in front of me.
He gives reason to get through another day.
Maybe it's how he loves me in his special little way.
And when it gets hard for me to sleep at night...
He wraps his little arms around me and says
God will make things right!
From sweet gentle touches to his bear hugs and a kiss...
He makes this hell on earth seem more like a peaceful bliss.
That great big cool-aid smile and the twinkle in his eyes...
Every time I look at him it makes me want to cry.
But they're not tears of sorrow; they're tears of pride and joy...
To know that all the love in heaven is wrapped around my little boys


benjamin,  matthew,  nathan,  sons.

Crawl - Breaking Benjamin

The shadow of a man
I am nothing less
I am holding on
Still holding on
And every now and then
Life begins again
I am holding on
Still holding on

I'm not like you
Your faceless lies
Your weak dead heart
Your black dead eyes
I'll make it through
But not this time
Your hope is gone
And so is mine

Live, fight
Crawl back inside
Sick, die
Love left behind
And I won't live
Your weak wicked lie
You pull me in
I'm one step behind

Show me where it hurts, and I will make it worse
Are you holding on
Still holding on
Dilated eyes shine for one last time
Are you holding on
Keep holding on

You're not like me
Your faceless lies
Your weak dead heart
Your black dead eyes
I'll break you in
And let this die
Your hope is gone
And so is mine

Live, fight
Crawl back inside
Sick, die
Love left behind
And I won't live
Your weak wicked lie
You pull me in
I'm one step behind

I'm becoming a monster
Just like you
After it all
You'll try to break me too
Falling forever
Chasing dreams
I brought you to life
So I could hear you scream

Live, fight
Crawl back inside
Sick, die
Love left behind
And I won't live
Your weak wicked lie
You pull me in
I'm one step behind
I'm one step behind
I'm one step behind


benjamin,  breaking,  crawl.

Poor Benjamin

Awkwardly leaning forward, sloping over damp, brown earth,
Stands a young boy's chiselled memory.
Above rooks caw incessantly in budding branches,
Yet little ever grew beneath the great yew's venerable shadow.

Here beside cold, forgotten, lichened stones,
Thin pale weeds strain for scarce obtainable light.
Small insects forage through fallen leaf litter
Whilst passing squirrels move swiftly on, sniffing decay.

Lettering barely legible, a long-dead stonemason's art
Serves only now as a brief refuge for tiny red mites;
And yet for those with eyes to see a tragic tale is here,
A tale two hundred years in the telling.

ВЂњHic Iacet Poor Benjamin,
Who did Fall into some Awful Vat
Within his Father's Manufactory,
Whereby he Perished,
Scalded like a Cat.
No more the Trees of Youth he'll Climb,
For Ten Short Years was all his Time. ”

Awkwardly leaning forward, sloping over damp, brown earth,
Stands a young boy's chiselled memory.
Above rooks caw incessantly in budding branches,
Yet little ever grew beneath the great yew's venerable shadow.


benjamin,  poor.

Benjamin

He is wrapped in poison
And clothed in self-pity
-hand knit from experience and dyed with bubbling, sticky anger.
Once upon a time he was a prince,
But the beautiful witches who loved him
- and loved him and loved him until they could not breath and their lungs were black with hateful tar and lips dotted with tears
Turned his heart to stone -
A spell they learned from their mothers and their mothers' mothers
A lineage of destruction.
Woe be to the man who opens his heart to these lovely molesters -
- with fingers both caressing and decrepit
- with hearts both golden and empty
We are the witches - stretched on the racks of our mistakes
- buried beneath the bodies of our past indiscretions.
We are the children who learned their own strength too late
- by the shards left in our palms


benjamin.

I Will Not Bow - Breaking Benjamin

Fall

Now the dark begins to rise
Save your breath, it's far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind
Now's your chance to run for cover
I don't want to change the world
I just want to eave it colder
Light the fuse and burn it up
Take the path that leads to nowhere

All is lost again
But I'm not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

Fall

Watch the end through dying eyes
Now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to heaven

All is lost again
But I'm not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away
And I'll survive
Paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I will not fall, cold-blooded fake
I will shut the world away

Open your eyes

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away
And I'll survive
Paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I will not fall, cold-blooded fake
I will shut the world away


benjamin,  bow,  breaking.

Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin

Milk it for all it's worth
Make sure you get there first
The apple of your eye
The rotten core inside
We are all prisoners
Things couldn't get much worse
I've had it up to here
You know your end is near

You had to have it all
Well have you had enough
You greedy little bastard you
Will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And hate what you've become

Intoxicated eyes
No longer live that life
You should've learned by now
I'll burn this whole world down
I need some peace of mind
No fear of what's behind
You think you've won this fight
You've only lost your mind

You had to have it all
Well have you had enough
You greedy little bastard you
Will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And hate what you've become

Hold me down
(I will live again)
Pull me out
(I will break it in)
Hold me down
(Better in the end)
Hold me down

You had to have it all
Well have you had enough
You greedy little bastard you
Will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And it what you become

Heaven help you
Heaven help you


benjamin,  breaking.

Benjamin

Me from a year ago looks at me from a minute ago
With her stupid
Fucking
Hormones
And her stupid
Fucking
Youth.

Benjamin button is real but only in the form of knowledge
