Poem set to music

lyrics

The angel
has kissed me
I am awake
a spiritual sword
in my hand
ectpoplasm
bubbles
inside of me
thoughts
provoke me
I move
I am moving
drifting
fighting
to grab
the controls
to steer
the ship
I have
no chart
to follow
I am
awkward
gangling
my limbs
twisted
my head
siphons
off poison
the gasses
escaping
no chance
of melting
here
in this
wasteland
of logic
a voice
within
rings out
resonating
reason
my sky
is blue
my spirit
new

don't go back to sleep
don't go back to bed
don't sleep on your feet
don't close up your head
hey hey!
hey hey!
don't slip on your shadow
don't fall down that hole
don't drown in the shallow
don't forget your soul
hey hey!
hey hey!
