into the million dollar night
where stars doth burn
unto which all souls return
where the rivers murmur
of the silver future
and the golden sun
which blesses everyone
has gone to its pasture in the greater beyond
and the noises grow quiet
a boat approaches in the milky moonlight
that falls on the oars and the hands that row
neon hooded eyeline grows
she rushes through the rushes as she goes
in a cloak of silkskin and web
she walks with her wolf
whose name is insistent
at her side flies a spider
who talks down inside her
uni-fawn rider
egypt is agog
asleep in a hollow fog
i soothe the savage beasts that swarm to inform
and i wing the woods and dells
aye with my potions and spells
yes my dizzy spells you know too well
i faint as much as i paint
and i aint no quaint plaintiff with some mere complaint
the night is filled with music tho it be silent on your island
island of warm darkness feel it heal you
it deals you the hierophants hand
its real its rich its now its night
wander for a while childe thru that starlight
the boats have sailed
the light has paled
the dream is upon you again
that dream of another time
dream brother sublime
there is a new suite in the wind
played by the rustling trees which i have orchestrated for thee
the birds and geese the pelicans and the soaring albatross
the elves themselves yes
and the droning bees
(never kill bees childe)
may the west woods resonate there
as autumn comes and walks thru the fairest
still slightly sunburned by the old summer
who has now fled leaving behind this faint red
oh million $ nite
tomorrow all the money in the world
will never bring you back
so wander in its black
quieten your mind a bit down the track
midnight arrives in deepest blue
calling down the line to you
million $ night
all right

    aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.

    i can relate

    The dream is upon you again. If we lived more in the world of dreams what a gentler place the world would be.

    Are these lyrics from one of the songs off of the DMH EP?

    Awesome lyrics or poem, whichever it is!

    You might need that "million $ nite" after payin' for dem teeth?

    How about all that Gold absorption?…your brain might be golden by now!? Nah…actually, your brain is "Priceless" with all of the innovations you think of from day to day! We are truly amazed!

    Impressive Indeed!

    Side question:

    If you can answer this or don't know? How many more dates does The Church plan on planning with the 30th Anniv NA Tour?

    I(We) just want to know whether i should wait if you come to Saint Louis or need to buy a Chicago or Cleveland ticket or still in the works, etc?

    Today I felt like you took us on a peaceful stroll in an enchanted wood; and the soothing rhythm of your words just made me want to stay there forever. Isn’t it sad that far too often in order to find peace and harmony we have to escape to another time, another place? We are truly lucky to be with you here at ttb SK; in a place where all emotions can be safely released and shared. Certainly helps me get through my darkest moments and loneliest nights.
    Thank you.

    I like the style of this.
    How do you switch your brain
    just like that?
    Or is this a song as someone asked.
    Do you flip flop in and out of blog poet/song mode. Do you know at the time what mode you're in?
