TRUTH: OPEN MIC NIGHT

September 22, 2011

On Tuesday night, Alejandro Gluski, Heather Reed, Laura Butler, Dustin Opper, and Cameron Devine participated in Open Mic night on the theme of Truth.

Here is what was shared:

Cameron Devine- “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul. 

Heather Reed- “The Truth Is No Words” by The Music

People try to judge me,
They will never know me,
Try to see within me,
All I know is all I own…

Everybody’s moving,
Get the feeling groovin’,
Send The Rhythm through me,
What will be this plan?

Well I don’t know what I’m gonna be,
Everybody wants me to be free,
Everybody get down to the beat,
Well I don’t know what I’m gonna be,
Everybody wants me to be free,
Everybody get down to the beat…

The the the the the truth truth truth truth truth is is is no words,
The the the the the truth truth truth truth truth is is is no words…

You care. You know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know,
Now n’ again, fuck it yeah.

Well I’ve been around some time,
And I don’t know what I’m doing,
Noddin’ their heads, n’ their feet on the floor,
And now everybody’s prayin’…

Well I don’t know what I’m gonna be,
Everybody wants me to be free,
Everybody get down to the beat,
Well I don’t know what I’m gonna be,
Everybody wants me to be free,
Everybody get down to the beat…

The the the the the truth truth truth truth truth is is is no words,
The the the the the truth truth truth truth truth is is is no words

You care, You know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know,
Diddly dum dum dum here I come

I don’t know what I’m gonna find
Won’t somebody help me?
I don’t know what I’m gonna find
Won’t somebody help me?
I don’t know what I’m gonna find
Won’t somebody help me?
I don’t know what I’m gonna find
Won’t somebody help me?

You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know, what it’s for,
You know you care, you know,
Niddly now now Fuck it yeah.


Dustin Opper- “Howl” by Allen Ginsberg and “The Basic Con” by Lew Welch
The Basic Con

Those who can’t find anything to live for,
always invent something to die for.

Then they want the rest of us to
die for it, too.
