by my hands or with fire / i’ll be cleaning black temples that i’d built in defense / my polishing shines i find / spent my time fearing age / and retreating from answers to questions i’d asked / in each passing stage i poked myself blind / i lost time / i lost minds // you might find that there’s eyes / you might find only your eyes / well retrain them to send / at first just pretend / but later for searching much further / each trail leaves you open / decide you’re light / cause brother it’s time / you’ll always find life // hold on / keep up / I’ll show you inside / in this / good house for it’s light / i spend all my time / here taste good bread / i bake for my mind / inside I fold my well lived advice / it says / when you feel tired / there’s more left inside / slow down / breathe deep / if you cry in mourning revive / lay down / be quiet / is this how we pray? / my hands / can show us the way / but feel how they shake // too bright / but then too dim / you always find reasons you’re frightened / so frightened / that you won’t go in / and reason may fight you / so even then // Don’t wait / feel shy / come sit at your place / cause you can / your body rewired / you may feel strange // breathe in without / breathe out you’re alright / breathe in with all / breathing out all that shame / no cowering fright / keep building up waves / replenish in flight // so i breathe my way down / and i breathe my way deeper / when i’ve grown i ascend / at sea see my hands / they’re stretching much further and stronger they’re holding my life to the fire / no tries / fire builds fire // shiva come home / i’m ready to play / when we dance / great heights are required / I won't feel ashamed //divine and spun right round / the center unwinds you’re unfolding / divine and spinning round / your pleasure is binding / and held in trance // as I spin / i grow / embracing decay / with each turn / delight comes alive / loss slipping away // breathe in without / breathe out / you’re alright / breathe in with all / spit out all that rage / your safe now don’t fight / your body’s engaged / just flow and get right / like following angels / you're following angels
