In the best of times there is still a river of Styx that One must navigate the stream toward the end of the tome
Where men and women have gone before and never come back to the alpha port, homeless in search of a home
Under no false impressions or scurrilous illusions regarding the good, bad and ugly of sensation's weird mortality

Blues and sorrow all went far away the night we met in the desert breeze, sunlight of the grey skies overhead
Deep down under the foundation where nothing at all survives alive in a body of a man or woman, not any animal
Laughing at me when your blind faith in the myth of straw, One Soul fixated on crime and punishment far ahead

To each king his own, each queen her own, desperate missing me and this life I've lived, epitaph for my old buddy
One who was with me through thick and thin without end, forever will remember all of the good times, full space
It was worth it to become the man I am right now but won't be at another moment in the far, far distant future case

This never was the party that the elders promised as we grew K through twelve and beyond to PhD honors etc
Nobody and nothing ever gets the gist of its nature, its being a rock or a man, the moon or the sun of god Ra
Come from DNA cell acid agitation and recombination of that subatomic matter, flushed the mix into the deep sea

Played with matches because I liked to play with the fire, to be burned by the hot flame, like my great grandma
Burned to death while praying in her home at the statues of idols, images of human beings in a saintly white state
Couldn't put the fire out, eyes closed tight praying for strength to get through the day, through germ life's black fate

I stared at the sky for two minutes while I drove south on I-5 from Seattle to Oceanside, just to be with surfer girls
Land of far away blonds in bikinis, the way my 14 to 17 mind saw 'things' in the big second city, I needed pearls
Near the ocean not near the lake was the only way to find those oysters in the hills, far away from the other shore

Why you said that you loved me I'll never know though I know I am the perfect man raised by divine step-parents
Never showed the true nature of my divine origin, a creator of psychiatric drugs, mankind ad hominem arguments
Believe me, have faith in me, the key, it doesn't matter a bit or a byte whether or not you are human or an alien

I have been mesmerized by your eyes, your mind and now the complicated smoke signals from your burnin' fire
So hot that the dish is ice cold, corroded and annihilated because that's just the way it has to be with heavy liar
From Missoula to New Orleans, I drove solo those 1800 miles in four days with my T-tops removed, a holy, oh lord

It's a joke that's not funny to the ones who have not grasped the nature of the beast, I reckon even that's OK, son
Hard whiskey in a glass five times, stumbled out the door on the way to drive off of a cliff down to Frisco Bay's sky
Traveled faster than a comet scootin' across the sky until I burned out my gas tank full of H1 chemical combustion

Here's a miracle, when you set my soul free the grey skies turned blue without a cloud, well maybe just one or two
Call your name out loud to remember all of the good times but it would hurt me to the bone, you know I loved you
More than your daddy and mama or any of your last three husbands, all dead and gone, I'm wasn't the only one
