Mexican Sun


Shining bright in the cloudless sky
Mexican sun: shine down on me
Let your rays kiss upon my skin
Gently bronzing my pale pigment
Mexican sun: shine down on me
My heart skips a beat in your light
Tiny sweat beads slide down my cheek
Mexican sun: shine down on me
My breathing slows as I close my eyes
Imagination set free dancing in my mind
Mexican sun: shine down on me
Palm tree's sway soaking in your shine
The rays are a quilt that warms my body
Mexican sun: shine down on me
Cold vodka and coke rush to my head
Heat waves paceing my hot breath
Mexican sun: shine down on me
A cloud rolls by adding a shadow
Fading with the mirage in my thoughts
Mexican sun: someday come kiss me again

    I went to Cancun last July the place of obvious as well as disguised sin pleasure alcohol foggy tattoos the flourescent turquoise water, and yes the sun. It was possibly the best time of my life and I almost didnt board the plane home cause I knew id be going to from this paradise to basic combat training two weeks afterward. I wrote some songs while I was there but the only one I still have and remember is ' the Cancun Tranny' which is about the time I was wandering the strip at 4 am with no shirt a bathing suit and flip flops in a drunken stupor And a tranny hooker tried to rape me in the street. I narrowly escaped with my manhood intact but Im not gonna go into to total detail.It was weird. (Report) Reply

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
