      COMING CLEAN & CLEARING OUT


      Part 1

      Speak of the Devil
      & the Devil will soon start explaining
      It all began the day humans were created
      God asked all us angels to bow down
      & make ourselves of service to them
      but I alone would not do it
      My love for God is such
      that it would not
      allow me a creature of fire
      to bow to or serve those human
      creatures of mud that breathes
      I bow only to the Creator
      They called me Lucifer then
      not Devil as they do now

      When God ordered me out of His presence
      He was asking me to do the impossible
      but I did it anyway
      A lover must always be prepared
      to prove their love
      Now I see why I must be
      an unwholesome influence on those
      sincere worshipers who attend services
      because of some compulsion or terror
      or eating away or they want something

      Lucifer means the morning star
      I alone love God with a love so pure
      that it asks for nothing ever in return
      & gets nothing ever in return
      So I guess that makes me the bad guy


      Part 2

      Things were going good
      The team was winning
      I was the starting pitcher
      & batting leadoff
      The other guys started
      calling me Ace
      The in the middle of a game
      The ump called two good pitches
      balls instead of strikes
      I turned to my manager who was
      playing short stop & said
      that something was wrong
      but he told me
      to keep pitching.
      & went on telling me to pitch

      Time slowed down
      from dawdling to ordeal
      It was like everyone else
      was in a different drawn out reality
      A reality that depended
      upon my hopeless pitches
      like a modern day Sisyphus
      I walked six in a row
      then with the game well out of hand
      I finally got moved to center field
      where time was more normal
      & I would never called Ace again


      Part 3

      Somewhere between grandiosity
      & self-loathing is the part
      of the country I'm coming from
      The angel on my right shoulder
      & the imp on my left
      How tempting their logic
      Each making so much sense
      To one I listen to what's said
      To the other what's left out

      Once I thought a creek was a river
      & a river was the ocean
      Then I saw the real ocean
      which never ceases to amaze me
      Who would pray for waves
      if it wasn't for surfers?
      Who would choose to be
      all smoke & no fire?
      Being tailgated by the past
      I could only remember the grudges
      & my best disguise was me
      Now I know that whenever
      words are read they get
      a new spark of life
      like when you say my name

      Gulls laugh
      Hawks cry
      & only we can complete
      a circuit like this
