Lyrics to Canyon Lands:


I’m driving through the canyon lands of LA county
everyone is someone here and they’re better than me
They’re still gold rushin diggin California
bankrupt city you won’t hear me crying.

You’re dressed to the nines in your rock n roll garb
with tattoo vines of roses climbing up your arms
but you don’t know the first thing about rock n roll
'cuz you're just a poser and a little girl.

Veronica you can try, try and tear me down
lie to your fancy friends and even laugh out loud
but try makin a livin working 14 hour days
straight job with tax is a slave’s wage
try makin a living driving ten-fifteen hours in a day
just to show up at the gig and they say you aren’t getting paid, maybe then you’ll understand what rock n roll is for
it’s something that you gotta do even if there’s no,
no reward.

Part 2 response to the fan mail

Well this really has become quite the topic here are two responses I’ve gotten in regards to the fan mail I received and posted yesterday.

1.) I might anger some people for this post but I have to publicly tell the world and my sister poeina how I feel. Today she received a hate letter in the mail. It told her that she was going to hell. No one has the right to judge another person. Telling someone that they are “going to hell” is an evil abomination. I bet heaven cries when someone proclaims to be “Christian” then points their finger at others and judges them. If the greatest commandment above all others is to love one another than the opposite, hate and judgment have got to be the most evil of all sins. If someone ever tells you that you are “going to hell” steer clear of that evil person. The best way to share your love of Christ is to share love with others. This is the biggest problem in Christianity today. Stop hating and start repenting of your own stupidity and judgments. That angry person missed the point of what it means to accept Jesus. I love you Poeina Suddarth!

2.)He probably thought you got your musical talents from the devil at the crossroads

here is part two of my response!

The only person who has the right to bother me with their belief system is my Mother because it’s her job to try and tell me what’s right and wrong.  

why this email bothered me so much

1. don’t assume that I don’t believe in Jesus just because you feel so inspired to be a preachy annoying fuck. My beliefs are my beliefs and I don’t personally like to talk to anyone about anything I believe unless it helps me explain myself better to someone or if someone asks me specific questions.  I can believe or not believe in whatever I want to because of free will.  

2. it’s not a secret that you are unveiling to me.  I’ve Heard it a million times!!!  I went to seminary(mormon), I went to church(baptist, unitarian, methodist, presbyterian, LDS, Evangelical, buddist, Jewish, pagan, wican, Gay Church, church of god, catholic and so many more!), I took bible study(catholic), I went to church camp(mormon/ evangelical), I have done my time, I have searched high, low, and far into the depths of my soul in regards to the universe and it’s mighty mighty creator whatever that means to me.  I once heard someone say “that to sin is to miss the point” and I think when people say things like what I read in the fan email, you are missing the entire point of your own religion & belief system.  You are a sinner.  

3. your relationship with Jesus is suppose to be personal so please keep it to yourself.  There is an appropriate time and place for a spiritual discussion and I really think there should be some regard to consent when starting conversations like these.  No one should have to defend themselves or shut up and listen to a conversation they don’t want to have.  This on a social interaction/awareness of oneself perspective,  this kind of behavior is totally inappropriate.  If you don’t know that it’s fine just please read this and never do that again.  We have a larger community here now than we’ve ever had before and it’s more important than ever to respect the differences all around us.  Stop forcing your belief’s on people we all have a lot to learn from each other.  Stop isolating yourself from real interactions with people because you think, they should think, what you think. think about it.

If people mention their belief’s as part of their daily language, not directed at anyone, then people should be open minded to accepting the other persons beliefs as something that makes that’s person’s life better.  

We do not need to all believe the same things otherwise we’d all listen to the same genre of music which would obviously be rap. 

If you listen “to the spirit” as they say you will know when the right time to bring your faith into a conversation.  I’ve had some amazing exchanges with total strangers of a different faith than mine.  I remember one time some young nondenominational christian girls were running around the streets asking people if they could pray with them.  I knew right off the bat that I didn’t have the same belief system as them but they weren’t bothering anyone or telling anyone they would go to hell.  They were just young and excited about their God filling their lives with light & love and so I prayed with them in the middle of the street.  We huddled around our arms around each other, strangers engaging in physical spiritual contact.  Our eyes closed they said a prayer to bless us and they prayed about their gratitude for the beauty in life.  We parted ways and they didn’t verb batter my brains out with the preaching so it was beautiful.  Tid bit of info I was with my lesbian partner and these girls didn’t say anything homophobic or try and change us.  They just prayed for the pure beauty of connecting to random people for a moment of prayer.  

4. Why do this certain kind of christian feel the need to tell people they are going to hell as some sort of motivation to go get saved?  I say “certain kind of christian” because this email I received I’ve literally heard a hundred times verbatim as if the speaker is incapable of personal thought or speech. I’ve never gotten any love or light out of a threat for ever lasting fire and torcher.  I doubt anyone is going to hell just for not believing in Jesus that’s totally insane on so many levels and we have to die to figure that out any way.

here’s a list of people that I think if you want to tell them they are going to hell that’s perfectly fine

rapists
child molesters
people who torcher animals
Politician puppet masters for continually manipulating the masses for money & power.  
slave owners
organizers & participators in child prostitution and slavery
child pornographers
Monsanto needs to be reminded that they are going to burn in hell.  they are the ones in dire need of being told they need to repent for their sins and they need to turn their life around before it’s too late or they all burn in a lake of fire set by the people rebelling against starvation, manipulation, and flat out abuse towards all humanity.

I could go on this is a rant after all.

 

Fan Mail response to my monthly show calendar

I received this fan mail today after I sent out my monthly calendar about my show schedule.  I will be telling you how I feel about it for the next few days.  it got ranty and long so I decided to do it in parts.

Thanks for this message, I really do appreciate it. I want you to know that Jesus Christ loves you. He is our Lord and Saviour, all good things in life revolve around him because he is actually inside us as we are so assuredly within him. He is forgiveness, when you forgive others you are in fact doing his work and creating his salvation. Perhaps you could say a prayer today, in His name, for him to bless and enter your life? I was struggling with drugs and got very sick and could not find myself, so everyday I prayed to Jesus and slowly and surely I was healed and my life went from falling apart to standing back on my feet again. Isn’t that amazing? 

We have one real choice to make in this life - it seems complicated and it seems like there are thousands of paths to go down - but truly there is only one path that is important - Will you follow, love and Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If you don’t believe me then on your own time say a prayer to Jesus to enter your life, and see the results before your very eyes. That is how the Holy Spirit works. 

I have been reading the bible a lot lately, this was a book I was foolish to ignore most of my life. The new testament talks about Jesus’s life, and in that book he speaks directly to us. He knows more than anything or anyone else what Life is like, and how hard and beautiful it can be. But he wants us to know that we are not meant for this world, we only have physical life in it, true Eternal Life is with him in God’s Kingdom, which is heaven. Don’t you want to go to heaven and live forever with Jesus Christ? I know I do, because that is Eternal. If you don’t know Jesus you don’t go to heaven. It’s like Jesus taught us. Imagine tree branches on the tree of Life, those who love and know Jesus with all their heart bear the most precious fruit, those who do not know Jesus are pruned and perish in Fire, which is Hell. Hell is very real and very awful. You don’t want to go there. If you go on Youtube and type in “Near Death Experiences - Hell” you will know what I am talking about. There are many people who beg people everyday in their lives to avoid going to this place. You HAVE TO KNOW and LOVE Jesus Christ. 
 
To learn more, please watch Mary Baxter’s testimony about hell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx22lpyxlQs

God wants you to know that There is Urgency that you Please say that prayer, please spread this word when you are ready. 

Jesus Christ bless your life forever, Amen.

Electric Land

i was looking through apps for video filters and found this kaleidoscope thing and it made me think of electric land because i sing “run around in my mind ‘cuz there’s no where to hide. run to my favorite corners of this anxious kaleidoscope, where no one can tell me no”.

lyrics to my song “average believer”

the old man from the bottom of the sea, he looked at me, he looked at me, and said tiny dancer will you dance for me.

it was like a fish it was a tall tale about an angry little devil with tangled hair we got into a messy fight and the whole world died. The whole world died. the whole world died.

there’s a man in the window there. talking dirty like he knew you were near. Ain’t nothin but another aging lonely inch. you play little devil like he done you a kind and you ache with an anger and you sit with your sins. Crying out to heaven for some resolution like what you feel is poetry and God’s still listening.

God the fish was an old wive’s tale told by a gifted traveler with a tongue of steal who got into a bar fight and the whole world died. the whole world died. the whole world died.

so don’t you tell me another word ‘cuz I can not hold you dear you’re far away from the depths of the man from the angry sea.

the old man from the bottom of the sea he did marry , he married me and said don’t get a fever I’m just your average believer, he said now don’t get a fever I am just your average believer in love.

ooh’s…..

he was like a fish with a cold dark stare. I didn’t know he was the devil when he played with my hair. we got into a messy fight and the whole world died. the whole world died. the whole world died….

lyrics to my song “Georgia”


Georgia I remember the tree with all the fireflys, like
Moses watching the burning bush and his eyes child wide like mine.

I was traveling with somebody who turned up not to be my wife. So I’m misplacing all my memories angry that I ever believed in love.

trying to live wild and free, still hurt by the things you said to me. when Romeo saw his lover dead and his eyes were heartbroken wide like mine

I may as well have died, I could never look again in those eyes, cuz I’d fall back down that well, to a place I compared with hell, hungry wild like the devil’s eyes.

and I started dreamin about a little place called
and I started dreamin about a little place called freedom

my only hope lies with Harriet searching the stars wide for a path north to new home.

trying to live wild and free, still hurt by the things you said to me. When Juliet saw her lover dead and sometimes it’s too late for tryin.

Georgia I remember the tree with all the fireflys, like
Moses watching the burning bush and his eyes child wide like mine.
