Help is on the Way

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

"May your noses always be cold and wet and running with music'.



I've edited the new song, "Help is on the Way".
(I know Patrick was interested in that (grin).
So, now all I've got to do is record it).



UPDATE, 21 FEB 2014

Visible has now recorded: Help is on The Way by Les Visible♫ Help is on The Way ♫


"Help is on the Way"

"I'm bringing home the starlight
With no bottom in my pail
In tranquil worlds forgotten
with no tiger on our tail

Is it the dust I'm made of
that has me walking blind
while you fill up and surround me
In the darkness of my mind

There's no one can oppose me
So make way I'm coming through
I'm walking through my falling down
into the heart of you

You can have these worlds of splendor
that wrinkle and decay
I take my passion timeless
and help is on the way

Help is on the way
to the better part of me
help is pushing sunlight
through my ancient judas tree

From the compost of corruption
comes the power to transform
all the worlds we'll ever know
you keep us cool you make us warm

you're the bending end of silence
my true serenity
You're the timeless
"look! I forgot my watch
don't cry, it's only me"

dry your tears upon my heart cause
it is only me and
help is on the way
help is on the way
Help is on the way

To the dying gulf of Mexico
in the fukushima rain
I can feel the mountains tremble
I know love will win again

no matter who opposes love
still love will find a way
to break our hearts and asses
while it finds a place to stay

I've been hungry for the homeland
I've been gone for lifetimes by
now I see the flames that flicker
in the fireplace tonight

I looking through the ever leaves
in the darkling of the night
from a place that is the future
my god its all too bright.

Help is on the way
to the better part of me
help is pushing sunlight
through my ancient judas tree

From the compost of corruption
comes the power to transform
all the worlds we'll ever know
you keep us cool you make us warm

you're the bending end of silence
my true serenity
You're the timeless
"look! I forgot my watch
don't cry, it's only me"

dry your tears upon my heart cause
it is only me and
help is on the way
help is on the way
Help is on the way

There's no one can oppose me
so make way I'm coming through
I'm walking through my falling down
into the heart of you

I've been drunk on wine and whiskey
I've been stoned and I've been shunned
but all of that's behind me
I believe I've found the one

I took some lives and detours
it took it's time and time again
but I am on the near horizon now
on that you can depend

they've been taking bets about me
for several thousand years
You can't compute the agony
that ocean is my tears

And now- Help is on the way
to the better part of me
help is pushing sunlight
through my ancient judas tree

From the compost of corruption
comes the power to transform
all the worlds we'll ever know
you keep us cool you make us warm

you're the bending end of silence
my true serenity
You're the timeless
"look! I forgot my watch
don't cry, it's only me"

dry your tears upon my heart cause
it is only me and
help is on the way
help is on the way
Help is on the way

What was it I was doing
as all this time went by
I was hiding in the underbrush
and now I don't know why

Now the moments on us
As we see the living light
Make ashes from the darkness
My god it's just too bright

it's a strange intoxication
that I'm impatient for you now
as long as this has taken
I should be stoical somehow

but there's no way up around it
it could be a million years
but I would keep on a coming
cause that's the death of fear

Yes, Help is on the way
to the better part of me
help is pushing sunlight
through my ancient judas tree

From the compost of corruption
comes the power to transform
all the worlds we'll ever know
you keep us cool you make us warm

you're the bending end of silence
my true serenity
You're the timeless
"look! I forgot my watch
don't cry, it's only me"

dry your tears upon my heart cause
it is only me and
help is on the way
help is on the way
Help is on the way


Patrick Willis narrates:
Help is on the Way


I know it's a little long but sometimes that's how it is.

No song this time because we already got one (grin).

i wish i believed in words
like you do all scrunched up
and imbued with meanings

i throw them out like seeds
knowing full well they fallow
many more times than they root

Very nice. Could not help but note the similarity of title (& intent) to a R.Hunter tune. If your not familiar with Robert Hunter's poetry, he wrote many Dead tunes (some of the best IMHO). His words often spoke of the human search for meaning and spirit. Very appropriate to the general spirit of this site. : ) "Without love in the dream It will never come true."

album: Blues For Allah

"Help on the Way"

Paradise waits
on the crest of a wave
her angels in flame
She has no pain
Like a child, she is pure
She is not to blame

Poised for flight
Wings spread bright
Spring from night
into the sun
Don't stop to run
She can fly like a lie
She cannot be outdone

Tell me the cost
I can pay
Let me go
Tell me love is not lost
Sell everything
Without love, day to day,
insanity is king

I will pay
day by day
anyway
Lock, bolt and key
Crippled but free
I was blind
all the time
I was learning to see

Help on the way
I know only this
I've got you today
Don't fly away
'cause I love what I love
and I want it that way

I will stay
one more day
Like I say
Honey, it's you
Without love in the dream
It will never come true

- Words: Robert Hunter; music: Jerry Garcia

"Paradise Waits...I was blind all the time I was learning to see....Been here so long I start to callin' it Home....Wings a mile long will carry the bird away: Wake up to find out that You are the Eyes of the World."
A quintessential Deadhead here who has marveled continuously throughout the years at the cosmicness inherent in Robert Hunter's words, transposed into beautiful music for the Soul via the Oversoul by "Jehovah's favorite choir"--surely, We ARE the Grateful Dead--Us! And "we been here so long we start to callin' it Home." Lest we forget our celestial origins...and that Judas/Joshua tree. The Tree of Life, with it's lightning-bolt climb up the zigzag hill of the lessons we need to learn in Earth School so we don't hafta repeat the third grade (again?!).

And, Visible, your songs, poetry, and lyrics move me greatly. Thank you so much for being here to HELP us, on the Way, while waiting and wondering and looking UP to the sky...going "When??" "In Franklin's Tower there rings a bell...roll away, the dew..."

"Without Love in the dream it will never come true."

Ramana Maharishi

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

Srila Prabhupada



Srila Prabhupada..

Each and every one of us is a person. I am a person, you are a person, the insect is a person, the trees are persons everyone is a person. Everyone is a person. And there is another person that is God, Krsna. Nityo nityanam cetanas cetananam eko bahunam yo vidadhati kaman [Katha Upanisad]: one person is maintaining all these millions and trillions of varieties of other persons. This is Vedic information. And Krsna also says in the Bhagavad-gita [10.8], aham sarvasya prabhavo mattahsarvam pravartate: "I am the source of all beings; from Me everyone and everything emanates." Therefore when someone understands thoroughly that "here is one Supreme Person and He is the leader, He is the controller, He is the maintainer of everything," then that someone surrenders unto Him and becomes His devotee, you see?

We, Krsna's devotees, are not fools and rascals. We have got our reason. We have got our philosophy. When we know that Krsna is actually the Supreme Controller, the Supreme Person, the Supreme Maintainer then we surrender, then we become Krsna's devotees. It is not blind. We are strongly convinced that this one person is the Supreme Person. Therefore we surrender. We are not blind followers.

If you're going to troll or get ad hominem, even if you are going to whine because I stepped on one of your frogs, it is better that you are not anonymous. Anonymous does not have the same right of being heard as someone who stands behind what they say.

Here is a possible posting workaround; type what you want to paste onto a Text Edit page. Move the Text Edit page over to the side to where you can still see your Comment Frame. Then click on written text (slide the cursor across so it turns Blue), then "grab" it and move it over on top of your Comment Frame. Presto!
