The Skin Horse (Inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit) Such wisdom flowed right through him, every word spoken from within. And my confusion for the truth of what is real and how it begins. But what if my heart breaks, I ask and he smiles… When real you don’t mind aches - He said, it is the beauty to life. Nothing to ugly, but seasons to feel. Only the toys can’t be open to real. Nothing can love when it’s not from within. There can’t be life when the birth won’t begin. Remove the sawdust replacing your heart, it’s in there waiting for love. Time will not rob you, each day becomes growth. Those who so fear it, each wrinkle they’ll loathe. No one can feel without first feeling pain. No one can stand without crawling for days. Welcome the wearing and tearing of age. Embracing each part of you. Let it strip you, Let it rip you. Let it break you, and forsake you. Let it seize you, when it needs to. And when it leaves you, Let it free you.

Follow Oooh… Please follow my lead, we'll go real slow if you don't know the way to go when they take away your wings. We may open up our hands along the way or every day, just to say that they cannot stop this dance. Oooh… And those mothers and fathers who call you down to just walk this ground; And make you tread in high water, though your heart yearns to flee, where you can just be in your wildest dreams…. they'll see… Oooh… May our joy draw many near to do the same, to live each day, in love not hate and we'll spread our wings again. And when we look back on our years, count smiles, not tears, and growth from fears, for spreading cheer and we'll give our wings to them. Oooh…

Teach Your Children You, who are on the road Must have a code that you can live by And so, become yourself Because the past is just a goodbye Teach your children well Their father's hell did slowly go by And feed them on your dreams The one they picks, the one you'll know by Don't you ever ask them why If they told you, you would cry So just look at them and sigh And know they love you And you (Can you hear?) of tender years (And do you care?) Can't know the fears (And can you see?) that your elders grew by (We must be free) And so, please help (To teach your children) them with your youth (What you believe in) They seek the truth (Make a world) before they can die (That we can live in) Teach your parents well Their children's hell will slowly go by And feed them on your dreams The one they picks, the one you'll know by Don't you ever ask them why If they told you, you will cry So just look at them and sigh And know they love you

There Is Life; Carry On When the moon has turned on And the silence has dawned There is life, there is life and it aches with song There is life, there is life, carry on When the stars can foresee Every age and story There is life, there is life when it hurts to breathe There is life, there is life, let it be And the sun can be cruel in facing the day As if telling the night not to stay And as time gathers loneliness, the moon has its way It returns as if only to say I am here, so be strong And when your slumber has gone There is life, there is life, you’ll always belong There is life, there is life, and it aches with song There is life, welcome the night, carry on
