Lyrics

Turning in the Dhirga
with a Dervish
Had a vision of a viper
spinning scripture at the circus

all ecstatic, wrapped in sequines
blowing kisses to bleachers
when the Witches struck matches
to the pyrotechnics of the charismatics
all the children twitched in seizure

Before a shining
Before a shadow
Before and beyond
Beyond a window
Beyond a mirror
Before and
Just before the love that spit you
into all the love that gets to
pin you down and show you how to suffer

Bathing in the river
of a light around your mother
figures at the bottom of the water

all ecstatic, wrapped in secrets
blowing kisses to a teacher
There was a rupture in the moonlight
then a fracture in a sky light
I woke up with a baby
laying at the bed side

Before a shining
Before a shadow
Before and beyond
Beyond a window
Beyond a mirror
Before and
Just before the love that spit you
into all the love that gets to
pin you down and show you how to suffer

Just before the empty shattered
and beyond the face it scattered
You were You before and beyond

And the cause of all confusion
is the clues are all arrows
in the quiver
of a question (¿)
