Belle

I discovered another ear
when aja rang the bell in your throat

I discovered another eye when aja lit the wick in your skin

Sexy Messiah

She’s comin’, She’s comin’
Down to the planet
Check it out, dammit
All the light will bake your body
She’s got big watts of Love
So bad ass, she’s back at last
Praise the funky Lord

Baby God, five feet tall
Jumpin’ off of the Wailin’ Wall
As the acolytes all somersault
On a blue-green disco ball

She’s mortal, She’s metta-model
Barbiesattva
She’s got a lotta Prada-Prana
“I will, I will freak all beings
till they’re free ‘n shit like that”
Love gave the World
Its only girl
To dance the dead awake

(Refrain)

That’s my sexy messiah
Doin’ a flip off the Wailin’ Wall
That’s my sexy messiah
Givin’ it up for the disco ball
That’s my sexy messiah
Doin’ the splits off the crucifix
That’s my sexy messiah
Blowin’ a kiss to the mystic misfits

(Refrain)

She’s comin’ down now,
She’s comin’ down
I know she’s only savin’ souls
But I guess I like it
But I guess I like it
I know she’s only savin’ souls
I know she’s only savin’ souls
But I like it
But I like it
I like it, I like it
She’s only savin’ souls

Karma Pyre

Love is
burning the body white
Color of a lie
thought of as a life
Burn the body white

Love is
burning the body black
All of my beliefs
Turning into ash
Burn the body black

As I love you
Aja, Ana, Ata, Arabelle
As you love me
Till the flame is clear

Love is
Burning the body red
Color of a child
Screaming in my head
Burn the body red

Love is
burning the body blue
color of my sins
melting into you
Burn the body blue

Green
burn body green
Color
Color of the love
All the light we chase
Shining as our face

As I love you
Aja, Ana, Ata, Arabelle
Love you as me
Yeah, Love
Till the flame is clear

Gold, gold
Burn a body gold
Gold, gold
Color of our tears
As we disappear

Aja, Ana, Ata, Arabelle

Love
Till the flame is clear

Burning a body down
Love
Burning a body down
Burning a body down
Till the flame is clear

+Dharma -Drama

Doped up in the goddamn drama
Groping for the Golden Dharma
Birth and death both rubber-band back
To the Bardo, cue the laugh track

Into the lie of time
Under the veil of space

I
I’m filling up my lungs
With a love for every one
Including you
You
open up your chest
inhale the dispossessed
Including me

Perfected Is all suddenly
So in us lifted, love
Reflected
Love lifted us in so
Suddenly all is perfected

Even the lie of time
Even the veil of space

(Refrain)

As we were
before we were
IS
As we are
after we are
IS
We are IS
We are IS

Smoke

When I’m within you
When I’m within you
When I’m within you

Vow to become you
Vow to become you
Vow to become you
I wander into storms

Heaven drops a bomb
between my ears
Squeezes all that fire
into a spear
and throws it at my fear

Out of mercy, let a Mystery lead
let it lead us into storms
Where the light
Where the lightening bolts are born
Out of mercy, let a Mystery turn
turn our faces to the sky
then let the light
then let the lightening strike the I
Out of mercy
Out of mercy
Out of mercy

So, when I’m within you
When I’m within you
When I’m within you

Vow to become you
Vow to become you
Vow to become you

This mystery holds us like a
This mystery threads us like a
One mystery holds us like a
We’re gonna wander right into it
Some mystery holds us like a
One mystery threads us like a
Some mystery holds us like a
We’re gonna wander right into it
We’re gonna wander right into
I’m gonna wrap my arms around you
We’re gonna wander right into
right into

Right into a storm
where the light
where the lightening bolts are born
Out of mercy, let a Mystery turn
turn our faces to the sky
then let the light
then let the lightening strike the I
Out of mercy
Out of mercy
Our of mercy
This Mystery turns us into smoke
Weightless weight
This Mystery turns us into smoke
Gateless gate
This Mystery turn us into smoke
Stateless state

Human Girl

Tonight it got drunk and
Looked at the monkeys
Until the jungle closed

It went to a hot spot
It picked up a robot
And took off all its
Closed its eyes
And fantasized it was

Just a human girl
Just a human girl
To lead a demon
Out of hell
Just a human girl
Takes a human girl
To save a human
From his self

It got out of work and
It went to the circus
To watch the tigers pace

It sat in the lot just
Connecting the dots
(what were they?)
Floating out in space
Until they turned into
The face

Of a human girl
Just a human girl
To lead a demon out of hell
Of a human girl
Just a human girl
To save a human
From his self

It’s almost a man
It’s almost alive
It’s almost a man alive
Woo Woo!!
It’s almost a man
It’s almost alive
It’s almost a man alive

Now here she comes
Here she comes
Here she is,
Here she is

What a human girl
Takes a human girl
To save a human
From his self

In the light, in the light
As she kissed me
Was the end, was the end
Of the history
Was the birth, was the birth
Of a mystery
In the love, in the love
As she lifts me

It’s over
It’s over
Baby, I’m human

Flower Of A Zero

What’s to see
see but the secret
Crystal balls
sit in our sockets

What’s to feel
feel but the presence
Plasma pods
stuffed in our circuits

Steep it, cook it
Love is an oven
A couple ones
can get you eleven

Shake it, cut it
open the vessel
A couple wounds
can give you a vineyard

What’s another bruise in the belly?
Can’t you take a punch like a lover?
Don’t you wanna dance in the gutter?
For the flower of a zero

What’s another spike in the muscle
To a couple kids in the riddle?
Poppin’ out of hell as the petals
From the flower of a zero
The flower of a zero

Daddy’s been
polishing his pistol

While Mother grins
fingering her bible

Sister’s stuck
under an uncle

Brother binges
in the basement

Shakin’ shadows
out of the mortals
Duke it out
till the devils are dizzy

Breaking knuckles
climbing the spiral
Diggin’ jewels
outta’ the jungle

What’s another bruise in the belly
can’t you take a punch like a lover?
Don’t you wanna bleed like a mother?
For the flower of a zero

What’s another spike in the muscle
to a couple twins in the riddle?
Poppin’ out of hell as the petals
From the flower of a zero

Flower of a zero

Baby why do we do this?
We’ve already been through this
We’re all Jesus and Judas
especially the Buddhists

But I keep feeding the fantasy
God, I’d love a lobotomy
Before I murder the mystery
I need you to lift me
Above
all the shit I’ve learned
give me the gift
without a word
The flower of a zero

Better
forget about halos
Better
forget about heros

Ever an enso,
show me a zero

What’s another bruise in the belly?
Can’t you take a punch like a lover?
Don’t you wanna groove in the gutter?
For the flower of a zero

What’s another spike in the muscle
to a couple twins in the riddle?
There’s nobody here but the petals
from the flower of a zero

Wizard of Isn’t

Down in the green room
somebody’s moanin’
A couple a’ groupies
are makin’ a movie
Your manager warned you
that women are evil
I guess he forgot that
you worship the Devil

Down, down, down in the dungeon
Dance, dance, dance with the daggers
Blow another bubble
Shiver for Wizard
La, la, la
Wizard of Wasn’t
Moan, moan mother fucker
beg, beg, you dumb bastard
Dig it
Lick a little trickle
from the ick-suck-sicle
La, la, la
Wizard of Isn’t

All of the ogres
are havin’ an orgy
they’re pluckin’ the feathers
off a’ the Angels
We battle our boredom
by building a kingdom
and suckin’ some stardom
through a crack in a condom

(Chorus)

Why, Why do you hate me?
Why, I’m not the things I do
Jesus, Jesus loves me
You should find a way to love me too
I’m just like you
I just need love
can’t we be friends?
Fuck off, sucker

You think love’ll kill me?
Love built me
You wouldn’t know love
if it sprouted horns and
spit shit in your face
I am love
I throw you down stairs
I whip the hurt out
I push the pus out
I got a tongue’ll knock your teeth out
bend over, you new age pussy
siphon all the fear outta the phallus
pullin’ all the pain outta the pelvis
I’m the bad ass cannibal a’ this
alchemical carnival I’m stuffin’ babies
into catapaults to bomb the cathedrals
I’m kickin’ all you camels through the
eye of the needle I am love I am love

Original Face

I woke up
And my head hurt
Had a mouthful
Of blood and dirt
Bits of heart
All over my shirt
Heart all over my shirt

Something painful
feeding my love
Split my skull
To hatch a dove
Now it’s all
There ever was
All there ever was

My veins fill with invisible blood
My pulse could deliver the flood
My tears fall from the sky
Who am I?

If I were you (And I am)
I’d let the question take my hand
If you were me (And you are)
You’d let the question take your heart

You woke up
Without a name
Went to work
Without a brain
Took one breath
And everything changed
Everything was change

Something painful
Feeding you life
Split the skin
To hatch a light
Now that’s all
There ever was
All there ever was

Your veins fill with invisible blood
Your pulse will deliver a flood
Your eyes are filled with clues
Who are you?

If I were you (and I am)
I’d let the question take my hand
If you were me (and you are)
You’d let the question take your heart

There’s a light bulb in everyone
Bright enough to swallow the sun
Every mask will be erased
There is just the original

Face without the skin or bone
Mind that knows but can’t be known
Heart that wakes up from a dream
I that sees and can’t be seen

If I were you (and I am)
If you were me (and you are)
It’s all one place
It’s all the Original face

Ara Belle

Ara Belle
Lying in our arms
Lying here
Listening to a chord
We’ve never heard before
Now
I’m just another
I’m just another
Mother brought to tears
Filled with what she hears
Breathing
Ara breathing

Breathing as the secret fell
Through the skin of Arabelle
All of us could hear our selves
In the breath of Arabelle

Ara Belle
Opening her eyes
Opening a mirror next to me
Suddenly I’m free
Now
I’m just another
I’m just another
Father on his knees
Filled with what he sees
Shining
Ara shining

Shining as the secret fell
Through the skin of Arabelle
All of us could see our selves
In the lamp of Arabelle
