From the “vault”, c 2010.
Remixed and released June 2023
Apologies to GFR, and GFR fans everywhere.
Thanks to Contraband (1973/Connecticut) for input and inspiration.


Can you tell me what you’d like to see,
In your future,
In your dream.
Can you follow some quiet stream,
Down your mountain to the ocean.

Can you tell me how you know you’re free,
To choose your master,
To find your king.
Do you hear the song the children sing,
Do you remember it’s sweet refrain.

Can you tell me what you believe,
What colors do you choose to paint the world you see.
Can you tell me, when it’s time to leave,
Will it matter then,
What you believe.

Do you taste the days uncertainty,
Or is your anchor fast and true.
Are your legends overwhelming you,
All your heroes fallen, forgotten.

Can you tell me what you believe,
A Sunday morning paper or an evening breeze,
A God of anger,
A messenger of peace,
A universal truth,
A final sweet release,
Life forever,
Or just an endless void,
A law to justify,
Some beauty in this noise,
A force around us,
A mystery within,
A miracle of faith,
Or just some accident.

In a world where words matter, SteveT continues to wonder - “what is the difference between narcissism and poetry?”

Thanks to my gifted friends,
the Rough Edges, whose talent and time allows these songs to live in a place more real than my imagination.
