When will it end and still be me?
Quiet hours haunt me now
until dawn rushes forth
into spasms
of the sky...

Death seems so close
and I feel so afraid...
It's hard to say what will happen
so I go on alone
into storms of rain and blood...

Bill Jameson Art Video by Bobby Jameson

My brother Bill has been drawing and painting his whole life. He is a schizophrenic but continues to create art in one form or another to this day. In 1965 he wrote Too Many Mornings,"That's The Way The World Has Got To Be"(part 2) from the 1965 album Songs Of Protest And Anti Protest by Chris Lucey aka Bobby Jameson. These are his words set to music which I sang on that album. The pictures are his from various time periods.

Goddamn This Needle

Artwork William Jameson

The night like velvet laid in black
Across my eyes of bleeding smack
Where diamond stars explode in light
Of arms and veins and powder white

The necktie rope that squeezes time
Inside this length of life and crime
a fire that burns a blackened spoon
In flashing silence silver moon

Eclipsed by thoughts in splashing moves
Of broken winners left to lose
In rooms of darkened sunless space
Where horror gleams and has no face

The golden needle vomits red
Into the veins that rise half dead
To drink the liquid cum they crave
And masturbate upon their grave

To laugh in crying fits of sound
In scorn of doors to truth unfound
Insane yet sane beyond the rest
Who send no letters home, obsessed

With life as if it were a spot
To catch somehow before we rot
Goddamn this needle in my heart
That rips my screaming mind apart.

Self Portrait


Seeing Time Pass


Man Alone



So lonely am I that tears are falling
from my eyes...
Embrace me...
Hide my face in your arms...
Hide me from this hell...
This labyrinth of machines...
Tell me of green wilderness and
just for a moment let me live...
