Oh, Wait! 02:52
It hit hard left life haunted and amis No one who ever knew the word love could have done this ????? Oh Wait, Oh Wait, I looked up to you No wait, Oh wait, ????? I think I did Deceived and duped by the incident in San Francisco Never was a home with a broken heart so big more misleading Confused but determined, weary but not ruined I'll live longer and accomplish more than you Well I'll try not to cry for you Oh wait, No! Wait! It hit hard left life haunted and amiss No one who ever knew the word love could have done this blank blank blank Oh Wait, Oh hey Oh wait, No wait Died for you I think I did

There are men made of wire and they are peeking in my window and they are haunting all my nightmares I may never be alone I sense them right behind me They are listening in my phone Cold and Sinister they rattle I can feel it in my bones Dark electric wired silhouettes in the environment came too close to my soft skin Wearing no armor carrying no weapon But there's people made of wire Hey Hey And they peek in my window Hey Hey right like when it's in twilight I may never be alone Dark electric wired silhouettes in the environment Came too close to my soft skin Wearing no armor, carrying no weapon Now I have to fight the fear So I am opening all my windows And if it cast me nightmares I don't have to be alone I don't have to be alone, No! , NO! Don't worry, don't worry, Don't worry, Dont worry, Don't worry

What happened, where did it go,I don't hear the sound They used to care for you and what you thought but then you found it didn't matter if they flattered you or put you down The words meant nothing for you, you never heard them The words meant nothing for you, you never heard them Thoughts are really loud, put them in a book Thoughts are really loud, put them in a book House is quiet, thoughts are loud Mind is writing music while I listen in Didn't hear the sound of your footsteps headed towards me House is quiet, my heart is pounding LOUD House is quiet, thoughts are loud LOUD Thoughts are really loud , put them in a book Thoughts are really loud, put them in a book Akin to standing in the empty forest reciting poems for no one I know Writing for strangers in the wilderness Not so comfortable with this Do you get the gist? I like writing songs for no one I miss Thoughts are really loud, put them in a book Thoughts are really loud, put them in a book I know, I know, I know I know I know

Try to begin again shunned the pain that poison me No one is looking at me For my whole life I try to discover truth but natures message told me to never mind Think about all the other things on the Earth I saw the stars laying on my lawn At midnight the Moon is in my hands I saw the stars bouncing off my lawn At midnight the Moon is mine Think about all the other things on the Earth nature, rebirth, universe, chart a course for the works Make a map, write a verse, write a verse, write a verse My quest is of one who has to be brave No one needs to save me Lets call it!,You won, it cost I will never pass that kind of test I think about all the other things on the Earth Nature, rebirth, universe, rebirth, chart a course for the works Make a map, write a verse, write a verse, write a verse I gathered up all the stars that had fallen in my yard And held them in my arms It happened just for me, Just for me This happened just for me, Just for me

It's a miracle I can even write a line at all As I am humble and careful and mad at all the sadness in the world Life should be good for every single soul Happiness and love are most important To stop your fall Happiness and love will stop your fall Love can give you energy more than anything at all makes you comfort and careful and when your are mad You are mad about the sadness in the world I had good friends to help me through It was necessary for me to love and stop my fall It's a wonder I can even find my place at all Cos I slipped and tumbled, OH NO!! Changed my view of space, few off space, this is not my case Erase that fate State in space It is all an illusion, It is all an Illusion I will find the way and still hold my place I will find the way, and still hold my place

Wild one wild one walking in the wilderness I look for clues, what can you teach me? These dark woods are feeling scary This path is high on the difficulty level You have to keep warm it's a windy night You know the weather will change Tell me what you did to survive You have to keep warm, its a windy night And you know the weather will be changing soon I know what it's like to win, I know what it's lose Won't witter away my time I am not happy with the blues Went through all the stages Rearranged some files in my brain I know I was good enough But did not fain the pain I know what it's like to be left alone I know what it's like to be alone I know what it's like to be left alone I know what it's like to be alone I know what its like to not get a do over I know what its like yeah I know what its like to not get a do over I know what it's like to lose I was raised deep in the woods I was raised by Bob CATS

It's 3 o’clock in the morning and my thoughts woke me up I can hear thunder in the distance and the wind is picking up I thought I might write another sad song Then I thought everyone has their troubles, they don't need to hear about mine My story is no better or worse than yours I am no weaker or stronger than anyone I know But I take good care of myself and others souls Kindness has been my virtue and I cultivate this trait But innocence and gentleness are often confused with simple mindedness It's only the thoughtless who have this base ignorance It's too early in the morning to be thinking of anything but the thunder And I hear it getting closer and I am wondering if it will bring rain Oh Rain A midsummer rain after a string of hot days A midsummer morning came after a string of hot summer days A mid summer morning rain after a string of HOT

Summer Feet 03:08
Bare feet-painted toes-ankle bracelet Summer Feet Warm breeze tossing up my curly hair as it tickles my neck I need to go to the country when the trees turn green Hey! Those spooky voices messing up my perfect dream This calls for a drive down the road with the windows down Find a place by a stream where we can lay our blanket down And you can kiss me like I am your own Clear Night Pretty summer skies Bare feet Sing over it Robins singing turned to protest when I got too close Like her I'm flapping my wings and guarding my post It is wise to disguise yourself and strong when someone else is watching Find a place in my dream where you can lay your blanket down And you can kiss me like I am your own Those scary voices are messing up my perfect dream

Where are you now? Where are you now? Did you find your way out? Does string theory make sense? Can you fly around like a little dancer Can you fly around? Where are you now? Did you find your way out? Does String theory still make sense? Can you fly around like a little dancer Do you spin around the World? Or would that make you bored? I see you soaring towards subjects I see you soaring I see you soaring towards subjects beyond my reach Above my head Your tolerance so slow So low For foggy minds like mine For foggy minds like mine

Wrote words, showed my feelings A vulnerable occupation It is what it means to be human for me Separated but longing for connection, you know I think there is no such thing as imperfection For in my eyes sometimes the beauty is in difference Even these gray overcast long day clouds Of the Darkest Winter I have ever known til now has shown some kind of necessary reminder of how Somehow this will turn to Spring I am going to figure out how to make myself wise Every one I care for is going to know it If they don’t I have to watch my words without censoring my self Wrote words, exposed my feelings A vulnerable occupation This poet is either brave or stupid No lines are bad, everyone has their own way of interpreting It is all in the id You heard what I said You know what I said It took a long time to find the rhyme In the saddest song I ever wrote On a cold dark winter's night On a cold dark winter's night

about

Diane Marie Kloba’s fifth and latest album, It Is All an Illusion may be the most “rock” album since she has gone solo and introduces a broader use of synthesizer to set the mood.

Great reviews and airplay in the U.S. and U.K. has begun. The sarcasm, the verbal metaphors, the poetry and performance art are sublimated by the increased emphasis on the instrumental music.

The song themes are a development of the more haunting songs on I Am an Unknown Artist. The focus is on the struggle to rise above the effects of a sudden, unexpected loss. Still, before its conclusion, Diane Marie Kloba’s trademark hopefulness shines through, along with her fascination with weather and the heavens.

Diane Marie Kloba’s latest effort, It Is All an Illusion follows I Kid You Not (2003), Messages From the Ionosphere (2005), For You, Stranger (2008), and I Am an Unknown Artist (2011)
