Rutz Poem: "New State"

New State

Turning around to see the ground

And The terrific forgotten shadow

That changes before my very eyes

New change

Never what you expect

A trail of constant disappointment

Had lead you into ruin

Ideals set aside

Desires distorted, devalued

Standing among your peers

In a dreadful state

Of keeping pace


I got to show you how amazing I am, me, me, me, me, yes im special smile

The parade I let float by

A plague of disastrous purchasing patterns

 Left Strangers stranded in penniless positions

The new victims

Low, low, low and left

To speak angry tales of betrayal

No longer able to believe

A story sold to them their whole lives

RUTZ Poem: "Stay Warm"

(To lost heroes in the wind)

They say the places you strive to be aren't going anywhere

But you're disappearing every second

Coming down the hill to realize we are not mountains

Now with the fear of knowing that even they can be eroded

The tough decision of choosing between instant relief

Or the beautiful someday success

The unseen version of yourself that you glimpse in daydreams

We all know it is easy to lose focus

To get lost in your own trail

Every time you rediscovered yourself

You asked yourself

 Is this what I wanted?

Only to feel the cold truth that we are far from home

And far from being done

Do not melt under the sun

Instead be bright

And learn to shine In the sun's brilliance

The heat will NEVER go away

Stay Warm

RUTZ Poem: "The Act of Being Good"

                       God, Family, Love for one another....Do not forget what's important

The Act of Being Good

Thoughts of kindness that lead us to a desert storm

With the view of a calm ocean in mind

We walk forth to a bottomless pit

In our time the lesson was to turn the other cheek

How do you open your heart and foolishly not expect to be invaded

Sometimes conquered

Where does our good nature go

When we experience betrayal, misfortune

What stops you from the point of no return 

Of an always present alternate reality 

Eyes, Emphathy

The idea that this version of you is the correct one

Limited thoughts in a hurricane of madness and mistrust

Biting your tongue, repressing anger, casually building stress

To keep your title of a decent human being 

An attitude only available because we built a modern world 

Where being a savage in the physical sense lands you in jail 

Being good is now a commercial 

A theory, a handout peddler who doesn't care where the money derives from 

Some can juggle the ACT

Many falter and break, yell, fight, kill, destroy

Never returning to good

It is a wonder to witness millions of people commit to such a lengthy performance

Fake smiles, fake laughter

Looking the other way, forgetting, letting sleeping dogs LIE

All for the sake of a stained self respect

In an age where right and wrong have been discarded 

For an elusive happy medium 

I can honestly say 

That WE should be proud, WE know how to act.

RUTZ Poem: "The Sunset Mirror"

The Sunset Mirror

The Sunset Mirror and it's final glory

Yells of yellow, pink and orange 

Stained forever in memories

It recognizes us in passing

We embrace it in our dreams

It wants our eyes to zoom to the center

When the hope of enlightenment begins to glow

Never an answer, always more questions

What a strange friend

I put my head down for a second 

And it's gone

RUTZ Song: "We Run"

I have not been this run down as I am today in a very long time. Working like crazy on some very cool projects ranging from the Winter Music Conference to beautiful photo shoots on Star Island in South Beach. Still, nothing beats hearing from you guys on Twitter and Facebook. Keeps me going in the RIGHT direction. Here's a new song "We Run" ....again thank you for all your support guys, love ya'll :)

We Run

We Run by RUTZ
(Hahahaha - Running out of breath) 

Run as fast I can

From the law

Things I planned 

Went Wrong

Now I'm on the track 

Singing the song 

My mind was up to it 

All along

Grabbing my hand

As they take my drink

Sink in the seat

With my arms bitten by

The Metal Teeth 

Waving Good Good Bye

To the Streets

I think about a

Lovely dream

Where I was filthy rich 

And everybody loved me 

Treated like a king 

Everyday living 

No problems I can see

I rode through all the streets 

Nobody could touch me

Watch me through a telescope

I bring hope 

Looks so nice from over there

You wouldn't dare

But I'm over here

Still living in despair 

And We Run

And We Run

RUTZ Song: "The Crazy One Now"

"The Crazy One Now"
The Crazy One Now by RUTZ

Verse 1

Grab your hand

And I promise to hold on

That last smile

Is the memory

That stays strong

Stared into your eyes

As much

As I could

Walked by your side


Feel this good


Verse 2 

"There was a time that you felt like this"

RUTZ Song: "I can make it rain"

The last couple of weeks have been intense. Got swamped with some really cool gigs, a commercial, editing a TV show, and doing a TED convention. Unfortunately, that has not left me a lot of time to do my essay on Steven Soderbergh's "The Limey" but it is still coming. For now please enjoy my song "I can make it rain" .... Thank you to everybody who continues to support my work on Twitter and Facebook, you guys are amazing! More coming soon :)

I can make it rain by RUTZ

I can make it rain


Verse 1

I want 

To see that place 

I don't care

If its far away

Some say  

It's not that great

But I want to 

See that place 

Where the ground

 Is made of GOLD

And you 

Will never get old

And I 

Can fly away 

And I 

Can make it rain

And I 

Can make it rain

 Verse 2

The sky

Even shines at night

And you're never out of time

You can be whatever you like

There's always a way inside

Where the ground is made of GOLD

And you will never grow old

And I 

Can fly away

And I 

Can make it rain 

Verse 3

The City

Floats from the rest

To make it

You have to be the best
You will never 

Ever get sick

You will be able 

To have your pick

Where the ground 

Is made of GOLD

And you 

Will never get old

And I 

Can fly away 

And I 

Can make it rain
