Wild Child Out On A Ledge By Kevin Lajiness

He's out there on a ledge by himself he's a wild child and nothing else
he's just a wild child with nowhere to go now it's coming down cats and dogs
soon nothing but the wildest beast will remain you must feel like going insane
but after the moon rises and midnight fall even the wolf is tamed

and the rain has stopped the sole is clean and the wild child has grown
or the clock run out to toll
and I've learned if nothing else for if you cant fly there is noway to stay dry

out on a ledge a wild child in the rain after a storm if not insane a silver lining in the clouds
he's out there on a ledge by himself he's a wild child and nothing else

he's just a wild child with nowhere to go now it's coming down cats and dogs

soon nothing but the wildest beast will remain he must feel like going insane

but after the moon rises and midnight fall even the wolf is tamed

and the rain has stopped the sole is clean and the wild child has grown
or the clock run out to toll

and I've learned if nothing else for if you cant fly there is noway to stay dry

out on a ledge a wild child in the rain after a storm if not insane
a silver lining in the clouds

Am I Really Hearing This

Outside the Union well the jobs of melting away like ice cream 
you'll live another day if you're lucky and you'll fade away 
But please understand it's out of hand to be reduced to a soundbite 
But Here We Go Again am I really hearing this where do these people come from 
how did it get this way I think the natives had it right why we even Poisoned them 
they've been saying it's time to throw out the bums no one can survive 
what's with this 40 hours when it's two days a week for them 
58 and I'm Clear Eyes I looked to the sky  I hope and pray as my time goes by 
it's so hard to live in a spiritual way everywhere you turn you're getting burnt 
like I said what a way to live am I really hearing this again 
bit the bullet for a lifetime did what I could  do to survive 
I ain't saying I didn't give up a time or two but right now I got my hands on my head 
am I really hearing all that jive how can anyone stay alive 
they pick and pick like children who the hell is running this country 
saw a strong man full of muscle he was working at a factory in Monroe 
I was just a boy and I said to myself I wanna grow up just like him 
I wanna grow up just like him.

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( http://openspacedocumentary.blogspot.com/) i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.

  I write from a position of emotion and honesty, usually tell a story about love, life, relationships, nature, adventure, history, spirituality,philosophy etc. My Art and Music style is Naive, I beat mix looped instruments as accompaniments but the melodies don't necessarily match, but I put a great deal of thought into them and try and bring something epic to bear in mind, yet some of my songs are ballads and relaxing songs of love . 
   I have 5 song books/ songbooks online 4 of them avalable as google e-books my "The 2009" http://kevinlajiness2009song.blogspot.com/  and 2010 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=SWsPBAAAQBAJThe 2011 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=8xkOBAAAQBAJ  and

 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
