Out to the sets! Pay no need heed to the warning sounds! Ultramarine. Don't be afraid! Seventy breaths. The plexus of Next is willingly with you now For an instant and forever. A raging sea, the ghost of me, so strange and sinking Where a soul cannot hide Plummet the depths, with no regrets Sunsets of eye closed Bursting up through the water to the sun. Soon we are sleeping... Just like we're gliding along on a lightning chrome yellow sky to the sea again For an instant and Forever A raging sea, the ghost of me, so strange and sinking Where a soul cannot hide Plummet the depths, with no regrets Sunsets of eye closed Bursting up through the water to the sun. Soon we are sleeping...

Day after day... Shimmering, glimmering fathoms deep, spasms seep Mermaid tongues in long lost Mariner's Water-filled, water-willed lungs Taken by storm, green light morn' Up, Up, Up, Up under your Blankets of night, fingers of stars, fist of light Water everywhere, everywhere Your Seven Sea Smile, a downward spiral Into the water of your mouth Day after day... Unending, descending my life on Leviathan Sea horses forever, I'm a mirror and you're a mirror too So blue the oceans parts cotton candy hearts Up, Up, Up, Up under your Blankets of night, fingers of stars, fist of light Water everywhere, everywhere Your Seven Sea Smile, a downward spiral Into the water of your mouth Alright. Okay. Day after day...

To know like a sinking ship Dripping from my fingertip The torpedoed and the damned In line and holding hands Oh kill me... It's pulling me down The Devil's in the deep blue sea Angel's have no memory Triangulating 'round the block Nothing ever seems to stop Stop me... It's pulling me down

Turn off your mind relax and float down stream... It is not dying, it is not dying... Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void... It is shining...it is shining.. Yet you may begin to see the meaning of within. It is being. It is knowing. It is believing. It's not leaving. It's beginning. Love is all and love is everyone... It is knowing. It is knowing... Know. And ignorance and hate mourn the dead... It is believing, it is believing... But listen to the color of your dreams... It is not leaving, it is not leaving... Yet you may begin to see the meaning of within. It is being. It is knowing. It is believing. It's not leaving. It's beginning. Know.

First flash at least until the end of night Smoke and machine dreams hurl in black light I'm just a hooker with a heart of gold Everything inside him's been told except the cum shot Traveling at the speed of if I'm riding in the back of an ambiance ambulance In a trace of wide-stance-circumstance You can't murder the Devil, only change his name It's still the same lame changing game writing your Number on the bathroom wall for fame Too fast to be touched and all too slow to be seen My words may stop on red, but on yellow they speed Traveling at the speed of if Seahorses forevah... To be or to become that is the question Now's the truth and past's the secession I have fallen and I can't get down The future is the promise we try to keep and lose the crown My tongue smells like Christmas, this ain't no litmus Rocking the Switchblade Sisters, rappin' with the Rickster, No trickster, Saturday night stoop sitting, cement stair sitting, cement stair smitten As I lay down some low end on her back end kitten South paw writer, North paw smiter Heart above my head and my feet above my heart Without love, passion fades Made in the shade, undone in the sun It's all begun 1809 miles away from home Traveling at the speed of if

And you take And you want And you brake And you eat And you sway And you grab And you sink But it's swell...even if you're from the depths of Hell I wish you well...Il or Elle (He or She) And you lie And you wrench And you wrap And you wrestle And you nestle And you trick And you smile But it's swell...even if you're from the depths of Hell I wish you well...Il or Elle (He or She) If someone has to be the Evil Octopus, it might as well be you.

Old Man River keeps on emptying his veins Navigating a sea of shit, it's a motherfucker. Thundering out with the perilous distinction Of having no providence to fall upon. I sauntered upon a most notable occasion of the silver-tongued Lightning Man. Vanished youth, putting wood to the fire She uses no sandpaper on me. Nothing of any consequence. Sacrosanct suction. Stretching flicks and flutters Rolling you in clover. Firebomb fucks in the alley, Psuedonymphs and sista-womans swinging their Pendulums of Love. Nothing of any consequence.

Come lay a while A simple-hearted love Come into to love Making to one The mystification of sex and spiritual love You know you want Come. How you used to say it like we were on fire The future may never come It comes back to this The past may never leave Inside to now to one Making tonight "Cause everything we say and do shutters To the beat of our own heart Come. How you used to say it like we were on fire The future may never come In your eyes we've been waiting all your life We've been waiting

Never too near, never too far Swim or sink, bottom below The wind we know, we think Stormalong, savage serene blue-green You can only know yourself with eyes closed Cast away fear, feel the jelly fish swish Oceanus, Oceanus, swallow you up and down Feedling life with death, feeding death with life Come with me like thunder to your shore Wandering and wondering white water in the breaker Shake your bones beneath the foam and stormalong A mermaid, she's so fair with silver sea shells in her hair We go a-roving in the sun Above or beneath? You must let go to inherit the sea Above or beneath? Give way! Give way to the boiling sea

A film of the ocean. Television of clouds. To think is to stop. Look North but dream South. There is no silence, just the illusion of being alone. You can never turn it off when you find it together. Until the day begins to darken. I strike matches at the myth but it doesn't burn. It illuminates. Living in the world, but not of the world. My stillness sleeps. My stillness shakes An opulent and gilded single-minded smile. You can never turn it off when you find it together. Until the day begins to darken. I strike matches at the myth but it doesn't burn. It illuminates.
