A Song for Ourselves (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

A, B, C,
I spell simplicity
We are God
We will not end here

We are mimes that mimic
What death do you pick?
Sweet dreams of the united
Let our brain be ignited
Let us find peace on Monday
Let Sunday be the end of strife
Little boy dressed in a dress We love you Little girl dressed in a suit We love you
We are mimes that mimic Let our brains be ignited
Mothers are gifted at living We love you Fathers are strong at building We love you
Let us find rhythm in words Let us pray for each other again Green lives in the this city
Morality pump into our hearts
We are God We will not end here

Hamlet (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

My depression is a cliché I am unique in the shadows My father is just a ghost I know nothing but myself I just can’t be happy Black waves of nothing I don’t want to be What good is tomorrow? When everything is dead I can’t break uneasiness With the poison in my throat, In my throat, there, justice is stuck

Three Times We Tried (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

There was that time We were broken up at sea The water like cold bridges Mist engulfing tomorrow The waves brought Leviathan
Then, there was that time We were broken up at bay Eroding shores eating chances Winds binging on distrust Armageddon had come to us
And, there was that time We were together at peace Centered on gravity’s ball Spinning on love’s attraction Merging into our heaven

Rescue Me (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

The waves almost made me miss you  But you threw your life vest I caught it  Up through the loop  I grab your rope  I haven't smiled this much in a long time  Definitely not with the sharks around me  I sing praises to you with the birds Putting my arms through I tie the rope tightly  Pulling with your love I float towards you against the waves  You're here for me
