A Past Life

lyrically close the curtain on me twice
and i’m hurting me
it’s nice when the family leaves, when the family bleeds
when i’m washing my hands of calamity
call me Mr. Philanthropy
captain catastrophe, Los Angeles redacted
Japan had me at the factory
no, when i was 17
no, when i was unclean
it shows me that the powers have needed
the ones that couldn’t read it
feed the fires that burn ever at night
brief respite
from words that are meaningless, the answer couldn’t free me
but i know the worth inside, the earth it flies freely now
do you see me now God
now that the love has gone cold, now that the wonders you behold
have turned the hourglass inside there
inside where, it’s cold and i know the time has come
to bring the one
the only dust, the hellish lust and the King, he’s what?
an animal?
you cannot have the language though
you will not sow the seeds of doubt
the realm says no, yeah i would know
and i’m wondering where the grief givers go
fetch me the water, call me the father
lure me to the hot gates of hell
feed me a fortune that no teller could spell
please, no
i am the one the truth finds
i serve the Goddess and she lives blind
in the rust, in the trees, the dust, it bleeds
slowly now do you see the meaning that breathes me
the leaves and the kings meet
the oceans that parted, the dance that has started
innumerable objects fall down from the ceiling
the cosmic conundrum that has me reeling
it has me feeling, the noise inside
the sun will guide
and while we are out wandering
the men lie there, deceiving
plans fail, and cities fall, the love fades
we had it all
no abrupt endings to the passage of time
no dark tunnels that end with a white lime
fuck dying
you sit there wondering where to cut lines
where to end
nowhere, no rush, earth mends
no time, hush hush
and all i wanted was a toothbrush



i haven’t been here for a time
in this sphere of dreams
this painted veil of endless night
quietly they slumber
the animals around me
quietly i wonder
why am i not found

do i know this place right now
the clearing in my mind
this empty nest of blue and white
the trees around me
they all take flight
suddenly and then forever
they whisper words of goodbye
traveling to who knows where
freedom fair
it is their right

little woodland creatures rise
from their slumber in a cave
this place is strange
there are no faces
only eyes to mark the page
they stumble about
new to their footprints
what are they

we move about carelessly
to the sounds of wings and sunlight
tones i have never experienced
colours and hues inexplicable
every foal i meet
every cub, every kit
every little wonder in this world
all of them innocent

i turn my page and wander on
what does it cost to make believe
words are priceless in our minds
on the paper
in the dream
the dawn comes for all of us
the dusk waits to call us, but
when do we decide
when does the laughter cease

traveling inwards through my tale
i encounter that which my words fail
a small beast
unheard of, unseen
it is familiar
green eyes, a young forest mane around its head
a creature i know
words come to me finally
i am this little god
and you are me

Blades of Green

be still young child and read the thin letters
the fine-print to the mindset that you have been left with
push back the polluted veil over your eyes
over your ears
vacate the media meddling in your illustrious calm
the questions you seek serve only to call
the sweet calamity of pain
formaldehyde rumbling beckons to those that embalm
you in wisdom and vengeance
protect all the pensions with stale ideas and temperance
respect those that know the way
the woe
they have felt the whip of many a mind reader
many a kind feeder to the populations that have gone
they have none
they are put to sword when they are strong
when we are weakest we have won
know thy enemy and you will go on to greatness
force the issue and you will fall
to fate
the faithless
they respect nothing, they reject the wondering
wander on wonderer knowing that you are not alone
know the places you will go have not been destroyed
they are filled with memory
empty letters of energy
reach out and find the answers in the trees and sky
fall down to your knees and worship nothing, but yourself
you are the elder flower in its truth
the earth welcomed you in all your youth
now that you have flown away to congress and greed
you are all that the mindless need to push on
go on with your ways and fight the surface
the underbelly of this world is there to feed
you and all your unfriended foes
climb out the window and into hollow
mountain ash and woodland sorrow
the animals wait there for your voice
to echo onward
to stretch on into nothingness
the void calls out to your shadow and form
silhouettes and tragic alarm
beat the ground with your footsteps and cry
out to the celestials and they will reply
we see the end to all this humming
the droning of ruin and empty summoning
monsters we are no more
no more
thunder the earth with your broken drums
the war for Gaea has only just begun
