So it was, so it was then
Come what may, I've been happy
So it was, so it was then
Time turns into space

Things of no moment

Sucking the sky
You can stop believing but it doesn't go away
The radiant ones never know what's coming
You can be here if you're gonna be there

Things of no moment

Falling away
Falling away
Falling away
Falling away

Distant fingers searching
In the black blanket of Scorpio and
Whirling 'round replete and gushing
A flooding flash bulb sunrise

Colossal and immortal shine
Envelopes me from a single source and
Hidden in the ceaseless movement
We share our secret sleep and

Diaphanous diamond supreme beings
without morning breath and seeing
Our hands clasp tight to make a fist
Of the impermanence of meaning

The nightingale that sings in the woods
She could, she should, she takes to fly and
I am spitting a rainbow stream to the sinking sky and

Blind me in my ghostly lust of
The flickering nova lighted dust.


from Smoke Through A Keyhole, released October 7, 2014
