Drifter (skywards)

Drifter (Skyward)                            or   !

I stopped to say good bye to a recent friend we’d made

we took a book of Batgirl comics, which on her bed she laid

her dreams of college started, her things moved in the castle

it’s time to leave the castle now, so was it worth the hassle?

harbor

I went out to the flying craft, gave everyone a wave at length

it’d be so quick to pilot home, hang on and use my arm’s strength

and then I pushed the throttle forward, wheels rushed off the ground

then floating a-bove I waved at the students all around

Enough of all this scenery, and back to my machinery

I drifted to my next goodbye, he wasn’t one for hugs

but he’d seemed a friend so good enough we’d talk of Italy

I raised my machine high enough to stay above the trees

Drifter leaning skyward

it’s beautiful, you can take my word

you feel surrounding elements, you are so unprotected

but we just might fly to everywhere if we can stay connected

And there below inside the park, I saw you my best friend

playing ball with a child and family she lifted up her chin

I guided down my drifter to four point alight below

and I asked have you seen everyone I know it’s time to go

You said I wish we’d stayed to be the graduation ceremony

I knew you meant you hope it pays that a bachelor’s work’s not phony

we’d have a few hours to glide, we shouldn’t plan our stops

we might not make them all in time, then our friends might call the cops

to see if we had crashed in our dream drifter headed east

perhaps we’ll just surprise someone if we communicate the least

it’d keep us off the Internet, it’s too much information

when our dream’s to launch our flyer and glide all over the nation

Drifter leaning skyward

it’s beautiful, you can take my word

you feel surrounding elements, you are so unprotected

but we just might fly to everywhere if we can stay connected

So hang on to my drifter, and our wings will catch the wind

I can’t promise riches, places we won’t see again

and I hope the flight is worthy, for it’s cost me everything

but my time, and that, I’ll pay to climb on hopeful, steady wings

we’ll leave the campus quickly, once we push the throttle down

and we might need jobs that aren’t so much, we might need other towns

but where we go, we’ll always talk, and speed to skies above

so long as this craft can hold up, invention spreads the love

We fly with ease within our dreams, without a fear of heights

in this drifter we will travel light, above the city nights

some might want to fly like us, a few might help the way

we can make ground life more bearable, though misery might stay

The weather in this drifter may make travel incomplete

repairs require honesty and dollars that compete

Drifter leaning skyward

it’s beautiful, don’t just take my word

we feel surrounding elements, we are so unprotected

but we just might fly to everywhere if we can stay connected

Flyers high within our minds, in vivid dream’s pretend

but I know what’s real and beautiful, is making one best friend

Drifter bracing skyways

navigate the by-ways

soaring over high-ways

floating high again

Drifter bracing skyways

navigate the by-ways

soaring over high-ways

floating high again

This was my dream, as I describe it, written alongside a melody when I awakened.  I had a flying craft, small, light-weight, which I could land anywhere with ease, and I prepared to fly away with The Marc Kane from a college campus, over the homes of some friends along the way.  I think the craft is Art and really, any unique choice of lifestyle to which you commit.  It could be about leaving college for adult life with no safety net.  It could even be about Death and ghostliness, but I didn’t have that in mind at all.  I do sometimes catch a tear at the beauty of things and often attribute that to the power of we mortal beings touching these sublime feelings and states.

I’m just a little surprsed, the next day, that “bird” doesn’t appear in this song.

excised from the demo recording:

but I had a dream I wrote a song, it’s all I wanted all along

it’s just a simple flyer, but they can’t take it from me

I made it, and may fortune take it some day over seas

  1. Dawn wakes and I’m by your side

    Who knows if this makes sense from the outside

    All that really matters is if you feel it’s wonderful

    Amazing and real

’cause if that’s how you feel

Continue playing, I love what you’re saying

I think too much but I can leave it all when we’re swaying

hold you closer -show a whole other scene

that we can write together

then we’ll know what it means

I’ll see where we are, over coming fear

We can never die, we’re where the eagles fly

there’s a way you take me high

I think too much but I can leave it all when we’re swaying
