lyrics

As I grow older and put on rust
There are not many that I would trust
I make my meaning from day to day
Hoping that no one will find out the games that I play.

To burst this bubble that keeps me blind
I must see my troubles are in my mind
Here at the bottom cleaning up the mess
I cling to the mind frame that I am still totally blessed.

This is one of those times that I know I must stare at the sun
Naked stripped to the bone with the beauty, the horror of all that I’ve done.

Sad but it’s true very few want to see we’d rather hide in our naivety.
When shit hits the shoe you can choose to leave or take responsibility.

While I am breathing I hope that I
Don’t find a reason to change my mind
While there are troubles there’s also hope
The miracle of the smile of a stranger can help me to cope.

There will always be times when I know I must stare at the sun
Naked stripped to the bone with the beauty, the horror of all that I’ve done.

Sad but it’s true very few want to see we’d rather hide in our naivety.
When shit hits the shoe you can choose to leave or take responsibility.

t.k. bollinger Melbourne, Australia

A connoisseur of dark moods and plaintive melodies, t.k. bollinger is an explorer on the road less travelled. His musical children are songs of contrite and emotionally challenged characters confessing their darkest fears and tortured realisations.
They speak of the usual things – love, abuse, neglect and the small triumphs and tiny truths that gleen in our day to day growth and survival.
