Bury me in a nameless grave 
I came from God the world to save 
I brought them wisdom from above
 Worship and liberty and love They slew me for I did disparage therefore Religion, law, and marriage So be my grave without a mate That earth may swallow up my shame... What happened to the other day When we walking through every step of the way together Well I want you to get straight with me don’t step out of line don’t lie to me Did you go there, did you say it, did you do it, did you wander away Well it’s something you’ll have to deal with today Cause if I have my part to play My children will rejoice at your scars and say I'm glad that they handled it that way The piper had to pay for the shit that he gave And here's when the story changes within a sound I continued to eat at time and spend the afternoon making rhymes I was paying no attention to the source of the omniscient frowns When all the sudden The ground became nothing more than sound It had disappeared and I was floating like I was in space Oh, I could not breathe but there was no need I had displaced my bearings and I was getting dizzy I wanted to vomit because I was totally wallowing in my waste That earth may swallow up my shame...

Shower of alchemy Show me me ideally Leaden anchoring to golden and freeing To react with those around me Should that need be Medicinally Willing to change In the face of good medicine Cursed to be forever An agent of change But change we are not We are not our thoughts We're not sold Just cause we're bought And now we must change, too In addition, as well Another entrance In 2 U WWW Where were we when? Alchemical showers Precipitate from new-law-law But who discovered whom All temples, a tomb Each a god, each in bloom Ever coming, some leave room For fruits and tools Or fabrics in looms And exits marked Should any be a fool Taste death, life, strife, sacrifice Then make some truth In endless youth Not in folly Just adeptness for finding food Sustenance! Make some space To transmutate The ease of tension Into an ease of fate The inevitable Is just what we create So kiss us off gently And make something great Hello? Yeah, hey. I can talk right now.
