Somehow You keep it in your fingers Touch You’re breathing Your heart into a drum MmMmMmMmMmMm I know it I know it like the evening Rush Remaining Convinced that we are one I’m gliding I simmer on the feeling Crushed Beloved I sink into your hum MmMmMmMmMmMm I know it I know it like the evening Rush Remaining This tingle on my tongue All my wishes rise to meet the sun Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper Deeper and deeper and deeper and deep All my wishes Deeper and deeper All my wishes Deeper and deeper and deeper and deep

Deep, deep dark Brews moonlight Compels the art Stay Make waves You’re a conjurer Seven spells away Your heart’s been forming Since you were made Now impending It’s not dependent On need or want Safe Safe to say I’m not the only one Who feels this way There Across the dune We see horizon Lit by moon Clouds been forming Since you were made Now impending It’s not dependent On need or want You’re not part of the rings Baby You’re not part of the rings Lady You are one of the free Baby You’re not part of the rings Your heart’s been forming Since you were made Now impending It’s not dependent On need or want The flow is like the tide of mind No feeling to be left behind Untellable as stars to man Or reasons why you know you can be more More than before Etched along the stony wall Each reason why you will not fall For since you found the will to climb I have been your seeing eye Now be More than before Yesterday is done You’re mine Become You’re mine become

Leave more than you take Leave more than you take Please I beg Leave more than you take Real unreliable The eye sees too much Feel the in between the ohms among the leaves Keep calm no aggression intoned Each enveloping event doesn’t need to be told The words don’t say enough Ride calm on a casual crave You’re invited to invent from the untellable waves The eye can’t see enough Sewn in history The ohms among the trees Ancient koans caress the rah Sweetly pleased to release Silence your intelligence Leave more than you take Leave more than you take Please I beg Leave more than you take Silence your intelligence You’re awash and you’re heaven sent Silence your intelligence YOU’RE FOOD FOR THE PELICAN

If it interests you home On the edgeless sum ah um In the embroidery Off the ledge between the seam Gone (Gone) Each second gone Every avenue along Leads you to the sum ah um No soft infinity Sets a course at cosmic speed Gone (Gone) Each second gone Like wind along The cosmic sea Oh Are we alone With whomever we’ve been calling on I lost all my linen along Their riddle beats inward then eventually Kicks in the reef You will ride the wave until you’re done

Built like a prism Manifest division Peeling through the air like a hawk on a hunt Prose like the knows Never really shows Beating to the rhythm of a medicine drum In the old ways they say Catapulted sages Ripping through the pages Folding up the secrets like a fawn on the run Slung like the departed Wishes never started Divided by the earth and the sky in your eye In the old ways they say You've got no sense No sense No sense of escape Man I'd like to show ya Separate the old ya Depart ya from the senses of what might have been Shake you by the fault line Send you to the the surface Disengage your doubts and all your might have beens In the old ways they say You change to live And you live through change Rah Oh Ooo Rah Oh Ooo Ooo Oh Rah Oh Ooo No sense of escape
