Mythical Creature

v1
I saw her dancing alone.....where the Spanish sailors go
Dress waving in the breeze.......Swaying to a stray calypso
I watched her from my point of view.....Down on the avenue
Passin’ the old church yard.......chasing her, heart falling hard.....
ch
She’s ... a mystery to me
mythical creature, i can see...(sometimes )
Eyes, dark pools of emotion
mythical creature, keeps me hoping. ...
v2
She came to me ...cool as a mountain stream
Smelling like warm woman, all vanilla , hopes and dreams
Time stood still ... like a desert afternoon
whispered secrets ... making love, under the moon......yeah
Ch...
She’s still ..a mystery to me
mythical creature, i can see...(sometimes )
Eyes, dark pools of emotion
mythical creature, keeps me hoping. ...

V3
We talked for a while.......moon setting low
She vanished from my eyes.........where...I don’t know.....yeah
Ch
She’s still... a mystery to me
Crazy love, hard to believe..
Daydream believer, now and then , but..
When will I see you again

When .....x
End on A#

Phlebia

Grey suits
No hair
Grey hats
Chilly air
Grey cars
Grey cigars
Losing touch
Of who you are

No need
For reflection
No desire
For introspection
Just give us
your time
It's a loan
Not a crime

Momomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomo...

You can't steal it
She can't feel it

Concealing bad dealings
No thoughts, No feelings

Breaking in. Bring it back.
Breaking in. Bring it back.

They smoke it all up
They smoke it all up

Mythical Creature - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Well I was driving my van out on Highway O
The first time I saw the mythical creature
Tall as a tree in a shirt too small
Anybody could see he wasn't human at all

We was just 3 miles from the county line
He had 10 big toes and a box of wine

No one ever really sees the mythical creature
No one ever really hears his sweet sweet song
No one remembers meeting the mythical creature
No one ever remembers his sweet sweet love

I pulled to the side and offered him a ride
You should never pass up mythical creature
He put away his thumb and got inside
I'd be liar if I said it didn't gimme a fright

Fur like midnight and eyes like coals
Had a stare that reached into my very soul

No one ever really sees the mythical creature
No one ever really hears his sweet sweet song
No one remembers meeting the mythical creature
No one ever remembers his sweet sweet

All along the road I been looking for his tracks
Wishing to go back to the mythical creature
To that starry night out on Highway O
With the country station on the radio

Oh I fell in love with him on that night
That's to say I fell in love at the very first sight
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Brown Word and the Big Whine has an EP out:

Mythical Creature - Paco del Stinko

You furrow, shoot an arrow
You can't walk the straight and narrow
You drew first, and then let the last
What a blast

You fill the air two hundred feet wide (Mythical creature are you real)
To kill all fair an abundance of pride (Mythical creature are you real)
Silent vengeance and an eagle cry (Mythical creature are you real)
A violent penance is the price (Mythical creature are you real)
For a higher plane


The Eastern star was once your own
Electric bedsprings and broken collarbones

I can't take no more (No more)

Rise from the brine one with the mist
A lovers whisper and a razor sharp kiss
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

I was destined to be a mythical creature, a blockbuster smash hit triple feature
A grind house sensation, but I timed out the equation
I danced the same dance, sang the same song I guess I was wrong again


I gave up all hope, impressed enough to #StayHome
Laying in the same tomb that is my twin mattress bed
In fact I get practice being dead but I sure feel like I am on fifty shades of meds

Let me get that adderrall I’ll give you fifty cents i insist that we are friends, I’ll a build a pretty fence

I am America, you are Mexico
I will help you siphon gas outside a Texaco

I’ll never screw you over or need a do over
I am indeed sober once a year mid October
Sorta Betty and Veronica, a weapon plastered well framed
Portrait of America, perfection hashtag cell games

I am millennial an incredible fuckhead
I love cheeseburgers I am the king jughead
Peep the crown on my head I’m a bastard low key
Keep it down? Ok boomer hashtag master roshi

I was destined to be a mythical creature, a blockbuster smash hit triple feature
A grind house sensation, but I timed out the equation
I danced the same dance, sang the same song I guess I was wrong again

I took a bite of the most perfect looking apple
It was filled with poison seeds of death I looked like an asshole
I’m always being hassled by the man he is manly
gladly a rusted part in the machine we stan Stan lee

Y’all can’t see the hypocrisy in every move you make but
you can denial’s one hell of a fake drug
I’m not here to be your friend I don’t trust anyone
We are dystopian no hope in having any fun

I’m done, we’re all done, wrap it up folks
Last call, drink your last one then we all become ghosts
Look at my mouth, it’s going to need some soap
I’m drowning in swag, throw me a rope

Shoot dope or worship god, do whatever makes you happy
On 9/11 never forget I am best at rapping
I was trained in a temple by a mystical teacher
I am the M. C., the mythical creature

I was destined to be a mythical creature, a blockbuster smash hit triple feature
A grind house sensation, but I timed out the equation
I danced the same dance, sang the same song I guess I was wrong again
Sober GF: I can't explain why but I hated it

Toby Rok: Sweeeney Toad...I can’t explain why, but I like it...

I saw her stand a bit behind
Like she was making up her mind
I couldn't tear my eyes away
As I was standing in line

I've read about fantastic things
Angels aloft on velvet wings
I can't quite fathom my surprise
Staring into angel eyes

Somehow I gathered up my nerve
To approach the girl I had observed
I fumbled through our exchange
Somehow she already knew my name

I've read about fantastic things
Angels aloft on velvet wings
I can't quite fathom my surprise
Staring into angel eyes

How can a creature of mythology
Ever fall in love with a guy like me?

I've read about fantastic things
Angels aloft on velvet wings
I can't quite fathom my surprise

I try to listen to the preacher
But it’s all to no avail
It seems god is a mythical creature
No more than a fairy tale

Half man and half bull
Makes a Minotaur
Half empty, half full?
I can’t tell anymore, anymore

Happiness is a mythical creature
That I’m still trying to find
If I read the all the works of Nietzsche
Maybe that could enlighten my mind

There is no mermaid
At the bottom of the sea
No hidden unicorn
Down the back of my settee
Waiting for me

I feel like I’m the misfit
Because I’m realistic
But what is doubt achieving
There’s nothing to believe in

I thought love was a mythical creature
Or maybe I’m just blind
But every time I think I’ve reached it
I fall further behind

Where’s my mermaid
Underneath the sea
There’s no unicorn
Waiting just for me

Mythical Creature -- James Owens

They say to the North is a devious tribe
Where the people do nothing but steal from the rich
And the leaders tell lies to control what you think
And the good are abandoned to die in the ditch
Safer to stay home, my friend
Safer to stay home

They say to the East is a sinister tribe
Where the secrets they keep are as precious as gold
And the old ones among them are worshipped as gods
And no mortal can fathom the powers they hold
Safer to stay home, my friend
Safer to stay home

Don't go to sea
There are kraken and dragons
There are mermaids and sirens
To lure you to death
Don't try to fly
Your wings will melt
Better to stay home

They say to the South is a criminal tribe
Where the men are deceitful and lazy as swine
And the children are hung on the walls for the day
While the women do housework and drink all the wine
Safer to stay home, my friend
Safer to stay home

Don't go to sea
There are kraken and dragons
There are mermaids and sirens
To lure you to death
Don't try to fly
Your wings will melt
Better to stay home

They say to the West is a powerful tribe
Where they talk to each other by using a cloud
And their eyes can be sent to look down from the sky
And the best ones among them are lost in the crowd
Safer to stay home, my friend
Safer to stay home

Sitting in my house day after day
Nothing to do but hear the words they say
They keep talking but they don't say a thing
Been sitting here since winter and now it is spring

Every four years we get to vote
From only two options it's such a joke
Don't call it flaw 'cause it's a feature
An honest political is a mythical creature

I'm so confused, tired of listening to Trump
Sometimes I wish he would shut the fuck up
His lips are moving but nothing comes out
At least nothing I need to worry about

Every four years we get to vote
From only two options it's such a joke
Don't call it flaw 'cause it's a feature
An honest political is a mythical creature

I, I'm tired of sitting here
I, I'm tired of sitting here
Sitting here
Sitting here

Mythical Creature - Tim Hinkle

One midnight in the library
in my great grandma’s home
behind the books I always see
I found this dusty tome

Opened it to a random page
and twinkling butterflies
fluttered away free from their cage
light sparkling in my eyes

Mythical creature, hidden away
no longer expected to engage with everyday
preserved forever in a picture-perfect place
drift off to sleep in print’s embrace

Turning pages with greater care
keeping the book half closed
the creatures from their pages glare
I’ve disturbed their repose

“Hey you out there
can I ask you the century?
It seems I’ve been away an awful time
From the smell of the air
the Earth’s now ripe for my re-entry
I can almost taste the blood—it’s so sublime.”

A vaporous form seeps from the book
I can’t hold it inside
“There’s space for you in my old nook
if you’d like a place to hide.”

Verse1
I went down to the arthouse in the early part of evening
Symbolism, metaphors, and scenes with double meaning
It's hard to see his this blueicide as other than a fluke
Gotta get a drink to wash down a little puke

Pre-Chorus 1
I paid for one and stayed for two, impromptu double feature
An artist full of happiness is a mythical creature

Chorus
I shan’t pretend what isn’t was
We don’t know what undoing does
She believes her own lies when rewriting history
I can’t believe this monster is the better half of me

Verse 2
I met a girl, she blew my mind, and everything was right
I saw her every chance I could at her place in the heights
I went over on a Thursday, had to leave her Monday morn
Then 90 Sundays later our first lovely kid was born

Pre-Chorus 2
Another kid a tiny dog, all 3 were picky eaters
A family without conflict is a mythical creature

Chorus

She whispers a lullaby
A mighty black storm approaching
Creature of the night
Emerging from the ocean

We are all just creatures
of our own design
We were given a purpose
Exquisite design

Visions of unicorn
Standing tall we conjure
They arrive in silence
Enchanted souls getting stronger

We are all just creatures
Of our own design
We were given a purpose
Exquisite design

I found a shelter, in the shadow of the forest
It felt like it didn't matter if I protested

We are all just creatures
Of our own design
We were given a purpose
Exquisite design

Mythical Creature - Hot Pink Halo

***

When I was a little girl
White swans were
Mythical creatures
And they lived their lives in
Fairytales with the
Spinners and the weavers

With the spinners and the weavers dear
With the spinners and the weavers
As they told their tales
Spinning gold from bales and
Making us believers

When I was a little girl
Black swans would
Glide and shake
With their necks so long and their
Wings like night as they
Swam across the lake

As they swam across the lake my dear
As they swam across the lake
We’d watch them pass through the
Panes of glass while we learned
What life would take

When I was a teenager
I saw my first
White swans
They swam and swam and they
Were as real as the lake
They lived upon

As the lake they lived upon my dear
As the lake they lived upon
With songs unsung they
Raised their young and would
One day be gone

When I was a grown up child
I learned black swans
Were once a myth
What was real to me
Wasn’t always fact and the
Swans called for a mental shift

But our swans swam on the lake my dear
Black swans swam on the lake
We’d watch them pass through the
Panes of glass while we learned
What life would take
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!

I tied a fish to a puppy dog
I fed it pudding and I gave it hugs
I named him Grizzly and I bought him drugs
We stayed inside and we laughed a lot
Fish. Puppy Dog.
Why am I so alone?
Who gonna broth my bone?
Why don't I get a call?
I'm stuck down in a well

I stapled a canary to a opossums head
I gave him nougat while he sat and bled
Walking down the street people gave us bread
I got so happy that I vomited
The Mayor paid me to go in this cave
He said "Don't worry, you will be okay"
He gave me money and a golden vest
I laughed and said that I would try my best
Canary. Opossum.
I don't have a clue
I'm shriveled just like a prune
I'm pronounced deceased
Even though I kept the receipts

Mythical Creature by Amby Moho

Saying what you mean is an underrated aspiration

I awake
in my special place

All alone to read
an undiscovered myth about a creature
From a sea beneath a city overflowing with disbelief

I awake
