Oh River!
Beat the bright out of me
I've discovered the silhouette of the face of me
everybody wants a taste of the light
but me!

Mr. Crowley
I've found a sister for me
in the jungle in the trunk of a mango tree
kissed a finger just to savor the bite

you've suffered the best for last
Furious and Too Fast
you've suffered the best for last

    General CommentI love this song musically. Lyrically its a bit difficult to pin. He seems to be borrowing vaguely from Carl Jung's "individuation" or the journey of discovering's one divine self as the unconscious of the male, this archetype finds expression as a feminine inner personality: anima; equivalently, in the unconscious of the female it is expressed as a masculine inner personality: animus.

    The song title "Beat the Bright out of Me" and the lyric "Everyone wants a taste of the light but me!" appears to give a shrug to illumination or luciferian influenced ideology. The mention of Crowley here is nearly confirming in this regard.

    Ultimately Mr. Bashi appears to acknowledge but reject all these things in the cryptic little piece. And ultimately, I could be completely wrong.

    General CommentSomeone please tell me -- is this referencing Downton Abbey with the "Mr. Crowley I've found a sister for me" line? I LOVE KISHI BASHI
