First verse by Dragonfly, next and every other
verse by Lady Bleaux.


Path among the stars
Is the lovely Milky Way
Trail of the Warriors

Trail of the Warriors
marked by the blood of heroes
A shrine of valor...

A shrine of valor
Burns with a flame in each
Freedom lover's heart

Freedom lover's heart
and a wild rebel spirit
lives within my soul...

Lives within my soul
The shades of my ancestors
Showing me The Path

Showing me the path
God leads me past the darkness
Into peace and light

Into peace and light
Can be a very hard climb
Depends on your start

Depends on your start
Giving time, love and guidance
When raising children

When raising children
Keep the whip and chair handy
Kids are animals

Kids are animals
Just like kittens and puppies
Young innocent hearts...

Young innocent hearts
Are pounded on life's anvil
Transformed to adults

Transformed to adults
and now more responsible
The future is theirs

The future is theirs
To mess up just like we did
History repeats

History repeats
Like shrill echoes of the past
When will we listen

When will we listen
To the soft voice of nature
She is speaking now

She is speaking now
From God's glorious Heavens
The Angel of joy

The angel of joy
Hides in the smallest of things
Look closely and find

Look closely and find
present in almost all things
Mystical wonders...

Mystical wonders
Snap and crackles in the mind
Creator's fireworks

Creator's fireworks
Streak across lightening filled skies
Hear the thunder roar!

Hear the thunder roar
Soon the dark cloud's tears will fall
Frightened by the noise

Frightened by the noise
of heavy metal music
Parents protested

Parents protested
Teens just rolled their eyes and sighed
The sun rose again

The sun rose again
showing how fast time passes
Some things never change

Some things never change
Especially people's minds
When they're in the wrong

When they're in the wrong
and suffer tunnel vision
They're miserable

They're miserable
And loving every minute
Sadists are strange peeps

Sadists are strange peeps
whose psyche walks the dark side
Most folks avoid them...

Most folks avoid them
red bellied black spiders
Turn over to see...

Turn over to see
directions on bottom here >
for microwave use

For microwave use
Is another way to say...
Cardboard food inside

Cardboard food inside
All ready to nuke and serve
Modern day wonder...

Modern day wonder
is the stuff they call cheese-food
It's nearly plastic...

It's nearly plastic
All the money spent today
Heyy, just say charge it!

Heyy, just say charge it
And then forget about it
It's not real money

It's not real money
Unless you really earn it
It has more value

It has more value
Than gem stones, gold or silver
A deep, constant Peace

A deep, constant peace
ever sought by many souls
But found by so few...

But found by so few
Is that elusive thing...
A Lotto winner

A Lotto winner
Suddenly hears from lost kin
Wanting to cash in

Wanting to cash in
is such a bad human trait
Work for it Bubba

Work for it Bubba
Up at dawn and sing your song
Keep rolling along!

Keep rolling along
like a ball bouncing down hill
Where are we going?

Where are we going
Alas, do not fret such things
It ends far too soon...

It ends for too soon
and leaves too many regrets...
So much left undone

So much left undone
by the procrastinator
Life's own happy slobs

Life's own happy slobs
live in the glorious Now
What could be better?

What could be better
than a night under the stars
Feeling inner peace

Feeling inner peace
is like rain in the desert...
Creator's Blessing

Creator's Blessing
Freely given to all hearts...
As he guides our path

As he guides our path
We will still stumble along
It's human nature

It's human nature
All our foibles and kinks
Defines who we are

Defines who we are
and then where we are going...
The places we've been

The places we've been
and wonderful folks we've met
Paths of memories...

Paths of memories
lead through fields of images
The past lives again

The past lives again
watching old black and white flicks
Stars that still shine bright...

Stars that still shine bright
Dot the velvet of the night
With heavenly light

With heavenly light
Creator Blesses and guides
Our soul's many paths...

Our soul's many paths
Lead us around the circle
To where we started

To where we started
Our own humble beginnings
Echoes throughout life

Echoes throughout life
may fade a bit with the years
They don't go away

They don't go away
Seems they hauntingly linger
Those Summertime Blues
