All cherished things
In blasted rings
Slowly circling
Hear them sing

A new shape of time
Proceeding up from time
Time echoes one giving
Hear them sing

The husk and the seed
Clinging, consumed by the flames of the vanishing
Hear them sing

Cause there's a pearl in your head
The head between your double head
It's flashing blue and red
Hear it sing

And I am bound to my twin
By a strong psychic skin
You hear it winding in the wind
Hear it sing

And i have seen the corridors
Swollen with coital springs
Those rainbows moaning
Hear them sing

And all those drugging loads
The course it takes changing thoughts
Like a volcano that grows and grows
You hear it singing out all that it knows
Hear it sing

We gallop and we grow
When we strive and restrain
And the pulse that we're manifesting
Hear us sing

Oh Krishna on the cross
Like a christ whreathed in flames
Howling the vowels of your name
Like woes migrating through your banes
hear them sing

Sheaves of deities
Dead as though sleeping
And sleeping as though alive
As the blood of the god, the blood that we are leaking
In blood alphabets, in lines that burst apart with wild light
Like planetary crusts rythmically buckling

The skull at the foot of the cross is my own
The skull at the foot of the cross is my own
The skull at the foot of the cross is my own
The skull at the foundation of the cross is my own
the skull at the foundation of the cross is my own
Its sockets brimming with song
Hear them sing

And when we rend the veil
With the veil-ending wail
There exists unbound
Disintegrating into sound
Into light and sound
Hear them sing

I sing myself inside out
In song i place myself between
You know my throne's a bloody sheet
Wound around my stamping feet
Then the pattern i seem to push
You know the shape i seem to pubate
This wicked world we weep, lord
We form a cross, we are transformed
