Angry Monkey

 

Lipstick and perfume bottles on her cluttered floor
Acoustic guitars on apartment couches
Men kissing on the stairs of a college campus
And lots of different women standing everywhere  

Rainy days never felt so good
Casting aside the angry monkey  

No, I donít need a blanket, maim
But I know I really should
Itís cold and itís wet
And thereís many miles to go  

Flames flicker in the dismal days before spring
The frozen wingsí of Birds-of-Prey stretch out again for flight  

We all wish we were given-to-fly
Even if itís not to hunt  

I dream I cast away the angry monkey
And fly away somewhere with the ones we love
..and with the ones we love who have fallen in the fray
-Memories of touching them
(Iíll never hold you in my arms again)  

Am I an angry monkey man
Staring at the beach
Staring at the sand  

Rainy days never felt so good
-No, I donít need a blanket, maim-
But I know I really should
Itís cold and itís wet
And thereís many miles to go  

I see a purple sunset, a woman w/ a smile,
..laughing children w/  organically grown flowers
& a smiling monkey
w/ blue plastic sunglasses
in a backyard tree
