CAVE

imminent is trouble

imminent is pain

for I have this sorrow

hardship's just in vain



agile is your motto

agile is your game

(please) stay 'till tomorrow

(and) pass this realm to reign



(you) walk, creep,

hide in the cave

dance with me

(you) stalk, weep,

ride on the wave---



imminent is terror

imminent the same

(I) mistook it for an error

('nd) sadly forgot to aim



amassing the border

amassing the plane

outstretching in landslide

(the) darkness of the cave



dream the darkness will fool me

what about sane, what about sanity ?

dream the dreariness will fool me

what about real, what about reality ?



DREAM

memory restored

I live this dream

this moment is short

I just have been

been wondering why---

I believe, believe this dream

tells who, what, where I am

it tells (me) where I've been

...and and and it tells me what I am

hmmm...and it tells me what I am



reality in thought

I live this dream

demons to be fought,

I might have been

been pondering why---

I still grief, believe this dream

tells why, where, when I am

it tells (me) what I mean



eulogy in stone

I live this dream

unspoken the word

I just have been

been thinking of why---

I believe, believe this dream

tells who, what, where I am

it tells (me) where I've been



eulogy in water

I live this dream

drowned dressed in crimson

I might have been

been lingering why---

I still grief, believe this dream

tells why, where, when I am

it tells (me) what I mean



WATER

in thought, in mind, in water down behind

the slot, the time, the moment I will find

: dark, down, deep : consolidation

: far, down, steep : failing inclination



-- water will guide me deep

and it will let me dive, dive, dive the deep

[whispered] sssst : the spell of the deep



I bought us time, the slaughter down behind

forgot onetime, the most that I will mind

: dark, down, deep : annihilation

: far, down, steep : failing levitation



et ego in arcadia vixi



it's the eyes of the dark red aphrodisiac

casting her spell on our life [ it's the dark that accumulates the spell ]

it's the wise old man in the water [ dark down behind ]

as he waves his arms as to stop me going down [ turning back, turning back, back, go back to your town ]

please surface, please surface, get away from here

(or) go further, go further, get away from here



it's the ears of the dark floor of the ocean

luring his spell on our life [ and the dark accumulated the spell ]

it's the wise old man in the water [ dark down behind ]

as the core opens and forces me inside [ turning black, turning black, turning black inside--- ]

tumble down, tumble down, tumble down from here

wasted now, wasted all, wasted all these years



sssst : turning thirty this spring



MY VIEW

[ turn your head and look behind ]

[ go ahead and get entwined ]



distant light, distant sky, the edge of the ocean

: swimming in [ formation ] :

: heading for [ salvation ] :

leave the sea, leave to flee, flee to freed emotion



CAVE (reprise)

we fought entwined, in water down behind

the squid in slime, the mollusc intertwined

: dark, down, deep : determination

: far, down, steep : found my destination



(you) walk, creep,

hide in the cave

dance with me

(you) stalk, weep,

slide on the wave---



(you) talk, sleep,

hide in the cave

dance with me

(you) walk, leap,

glide on the wave---
