But if you go slower A gentle wind will lift and bring you down To a Level Lower Where stone archways, torches ablaze, and beautiful women are scouring the floor Imagine opening that door What is this underground hall for? When you’re walking slower The echo of your footsteps really resounds You will get to know her By doing something, saying nothing and really loving And scouring the floor Because now you’ve opened that door To a level lower…..

‘Cause you’ve got to wait for her energy To rise up inside you see Until your heart beats so frequently And then you’re ready to meet with She She Wolf Bow down at her feet Don’t show her you’re weak Tell her what you want to do Ask her if she wills you to And run from your enemies, who try to put you in a box for 50 hours each week Scream back with ferocity like She She Wolf Like she. She Wolf Wait for her energy to rise up inside And you’re waiting for your guide to unveil the lie Like She She Wolf

There are some things that you can’t see, but they exist just like you and me They live under the banks of the stream and they communicate through dreams In my dream In my dream I saw a floating tear shaped light, I thought it might be taking me We drifted out over the lake and all the snakes were swimming to me And when they slithered under my skin, I felt them say it’s time to begin And begin, and begin to try to fly We can bounce off the water into the sky There was a mansion place unknown I was with people but the owners weren’t home And we saw fifty people come in We were scared and we started to run and begin… ..and begin to dance The performance had found us, if by chance Why find it so hard to believe that all these answers would hide under my sleeve And doubt it, think that it’s not right But you can take on your troubles and lovers at night You can take on your troubles and lovers and troubles and lovers at night In my dream

I get a warm feeling when my guy walks by I feel like I’m stealing from only the good side And I’m alive, in good style And I’m shy, but not for a while now Why do all the people ignore me and walk by? Fountains of good and evil are pouring from my eyes And I would smile, just for a while now ‘Cause a child, hears all those buzzing and low sounds. And we could try to make enough to get by now But why? We’re living and wild.

Want to be, want to be one Couldn’t be, couldn’t be two, oh you Oh you Could it be? Could it be fun? How can I be the one? The Sun burning and burning The sun and only Want to feel, want to feel one But with you, it’s always split into two Because burning’s the journey. Diffuse And all of my yearning The sun and only The sun and only And when you have the desire Wouldn’t you like to fly into the Sun? And with you as with I Shouldn’t we just try? One. Into the sky Want to be one Want to feel Sun

Baby why didn’t you just say so? You’re getting married Follow my lead, follow him please What if you walk over a dark hole and there’s no bottom? Fall at your leisure and fall with me please Take a big leap with me What does it mean to be bound together while trying to be free? And am I still me? What if you skip over some quicksand and find yourself sinking? Eat sand with me please. Let’s sink and believe that when we’re all married our problems will be solved and life will be happy, our debts will be absolved Just pick your favorite diamond. Now pick your favorite ring Your voices get tired, but louder the older we sing. Sing

Where did you come from? You look out of place There’s something strange written on your face Is that you waiting for the unknown? And aren’t you fading under the weight of your demands? And where to go to recompose? You’ll need someone strong to call the show In Yoda’s eyes I suppose We’re all going to die, I know Is that you flailing into the unknown I wondered why all your dishes looked thrown In your desires I grow Where to they come from? I don’t know Is that you waiting for the unknown? I wondered why all your dishes looked thrown Is that you flailing into the unknown? And aren’t you fading under the weight of your demands? In Yoda’s eyes I suppose In your desires I grow Where do they come from? I don’t know

Blues, I’ve got blues Slow blow buried down in the snow below News, bring me news Good news, joyous sounds splatter the sunshine around the room Damed if you come and if you do, I will be waiting for you Don’t think of one, you know it’s two It will be waiting for you Hey you, it’s the truth A beautiful day is passing away from your view through the window of your room Oooh, don’t be doomed The hours are all here for you Waiting for you

Will you take me to your cave of exile? Hoping when we get there you will help me reconcile my many moans You and me alone You can show me how to put the mud upon my skin Slowly we will draw out the toxins from within And take a hold of them A black mold living inside my hands Darkness makes the man We can sculpt it into something that will work for us A dark man roaming through the forest To kill our enemies The ones inside of me For many days we’ve been walking stray Pulling up the weeds from which our bodies feed

I didn’t choose them no But these are the best shoes of my life I’ve had so many other fine pairs But slip these on and slip out of my body without a care They appeared to me many long years ago I really needed something I was young and not very bold But there they were staring at me from off of the shelf I slipped them on and slipped out of myself You would tell me I shouldn’t use my shoes like a drug And to not confuse elation for love But there’s days when you need to feel something strong I will float above my body like notes in a song Out of my body without a care

I want you to know How long will you be my dear? I think you should just stay here I think you should just stay here Into the undergrowth I can’t say where we’re going Where we’re going Into the… Into the undergrowth Where we’re going
