Devil's Den (Annette Redmond Walters - Lafayette, LA)

Demons in my head Sucking at my brain Twisted dreams of dead Flushing me with pain Can't hear what you said Deafened by the rain
Desperate to free my soul I thrash against your skin Sucked into this hole I've walked into the devil's den I lay upon his coals Suffering for my sin
Please release my passion Before it's smothered out Love's become a fashion That's filled my mind with doubt I won't live off his rations Somehow I'll find the route

Disease (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

What is this eating at me? This despair of death It has taken my courage I, at times, fear the unknown This disease grows strong Hopefully, I grow stronger Longer, longer I stay I wait for the alarm That final ring to my maker My flesh ready for serving Can I be no smarter than death? When the timer goes off I give in too easily to grief I am but the perfect target I can think around this journey I must be the better magician An instigator of all life The beauty in the breakdown This disease will not win Release my soul into the wind

Running (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

I’ve never run so fast I couldn’t stand the dark The shadows are behind me I mustn’t fear the stumbles But my heart is fleeting Patience is running thin Illness is not a type of love Every breath crumbles at lust Embrace the past not shadows In the end staying is dying My happiness accepts me

Especially (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

Get on the floor
And dance with me It’s been a while Ooh wee child The groove is here Ain’t got no fear Let us be free Let me get more I’ll be that adverb You’ve been waiting for Get up on me And freak with me Put your arms around Spinning the earth Letting words highlight Our love, especially Let us just be Let us get more We’ll be that adverb We’ve been waiting for

A Right to God (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

There is no God that abuses or kills Just demons and their worshippers They try to block me from Her I am no fool I see Her language in nature My sanctuary is safe It is everywhere My loves are safe, their souls lifted I worship Her beautiful soul, energy Sometimes in free-spirited words This is my right She is my God
I respect with honor
