lyrics

Half-cut and half-conscious
with Billy's seen darkness
a bliss of unthinking
and all-knowing morning
we alive in the music
awoke to ourselves,
each peachy, pacific,
specifically still.

And with our five senses sixthed
we fixed it so quick
and with rechilded eyes -
all the sky was ablaze! -
and I'm frankly amazed
at how simple it was,
how simple it is.

O the moon that balloon
up above is in love
with the world and they whirl
in their unending dance
in a cosmos of forces
they don't understand
but they know
it had to be so.

By the redgreenbrown river
we mermaided now
wordless with wisdom
weave words till we drown

goddam homo sapien
spun stupid with thought
so very very clever
with all we are not.

I trust it completely
(myself a shade less)
this Nameless that placed us
inevitably thus.
