I just want to lay myself down
Drink the illusions and let it all float
Into the river of voices
One of them will speak and tell me where to go

I packed up my thoughts and visions
Headed for the light on the other side
Although consoling was a myth
The tunnel was a con, I ran - But I never turned back

I have deported my own life
Into this foolish splendour
I have brought the beauty of a soul
Cold and dark as the last day
Is the image of the dream
That made it all worthwhile
In exile..

If there is a sign out there hiding
Come to me now or forever hold your peace
You'll find me in my room in the guesthouse
Riding clouds that are hard to please

When there is a fight I will be there
It feels so good to do what one should not do
And I play I gamble I stay
I look - but I never turn back

I have deported my own life
Into this foolish splendour
I have brought the beauty of a soul
Cold and dark as the last day
Is the image of the dream
That made made it all worthwhile
In exile.. In exile.. In exile..

    General CommentI love the message she is evoking in this piece. Instead the common birth to death, existence to extinction correspondence, she reverses the idea ; death to birth in correspondence with modernity to tradition.

    Modernity brings spiritual death, imposed social masks, paint coverings, image validation through status objects, white washings of truth,and exile from life. She removes these social chains and strips herself down to her ultimate value. A women with a sole, not the former mythical console.
