flash bang wallop

flash bang wallop

we were living forever

in some strange city

in some strange day that stretched on and out

somebody talking in labyrinthian chambers

somebody framed against the pale sky at dawn

somebody walking down gardened roads in quiet time slowly

somebody else i suppose was following close

reality warped in memory though

some sanctuary

there was or there must have been that

where did we hide from wolves and jackal men then?

the mind is a mystery

it cannot fathom itself

it cannot dive deep into its ocean and find all the monsters

it cannot sort out the voices and lives it contains

it cannot map the forces which have come down to bear on it

it cannot always tell sweet truth from brute lie

harnessed to anxiety

goaded by pride

and hammered by doubt

(what the fuck am i saying?)

it apprehends the world a dim thing

immured to beauty

immersed in merciless acts

wickedness breeds in the swamps of imagination

like lust for money like avarice for flesh

like need to see hurt and taste blood

the mind of human cannot understand the mind of animal

the mind of human cannot understand the mind of god

we are neither one thing nor the other

or maybe in transition

try explaining abattoirs to the aliens

see if they can buy into it

the gods and the aliens with their prints all over me

moulding me holding me telling me what to say

even if i am mad and my mind is now gone

something still out there tells me what to say

and how i should say it…

i wonder who that is?

i wonder who  else is in my mind

i wonder how all this came to be here

working so well (except for some men)

i wonder why things are so hard for some

so easy for others

and others who dont even know theyre  playing a game

at first it can seem like all beer and skittles

then snakes n ladders n then i dont know

but youve been dicing with death all along

and must have realised that

when they began the last song

    what I still can’t figure out is: how many realities does it take to live forever? that pattern is the most difficult to see and remains hidden from any logical conclusion

    the mind full of ugliness and chattering voices that’s for sure
    but inner divine consciousness can observe and eliminate it all
    all the darkness and sources of pain
    all the anxiety, pride no more gain
    some doubt is good and some doubt a drain
    its an inner holy war to transform and awaken again
    to see the light to be the light to love and laugh in rain
    to remove all inner demons so greater consciousness remains
    its why life exists in this whole cosmic plane

    First of all, luv the pic, Steve. I would go into that picture(not literally..)-but it actually is descriptive of something else that’s possibly more relative to something else. Yeah, I think we’ve all been there before; subconsciously or by swimming in that ‘river of de nile’. Whatever the case may be, i’m told it’s ok to question your own sanity – every now and then; supposedly awareness of your state of being is the exact opposite, if it is true. Hey, it’s probably passed you by, by now, or have transferred it(no surprise) to one of your other outlets of creativity – and what a productive way to cope it is!!…what am I saying??
    Well, gotta say, whatever you bang out on those lettered keys is always refreshing after dealing w/ some boring bull or obligations. It’s a kool way to escape and relate…at least for a while – no need to thank ME….haha – cheers!!

    hell, when I come around and visit the neighborhood these days it always makes me regret leaving it so long between catch-ups, but life’s kinda like that at the moment…..
    keep the magic coming, mate….
    love always

    Thank you once again for denouncing malevolent and Godless slaughterhouses. They are hells on earth for our fellow sentient beings and creatures of God.
