In precious slimy times I’d easily be your cannibal Amidst cinema’s lairs As you face away fair With butterflies and shoulders bare Same as swoon and falls For as long as you are here My dear, her – here Precious Sister with blonde hair Hours and glasses bare

Without clouds in the sky There came a big bump I saw the rock as a dog A three legged dog Where it proudly stood A dog with three legs Cloudless Thank god Cloudless

I dreamt where the story began In good company - good company When the chemist shut up shop Shut up shop for the night Is when the story begins In a dream or in a dream It seems it doesn't end I dreamt where the story began Both in good company Is when the story begins

I have no idea Why we are here of that I am clear So please don’t fear as I had no idea why we are here I’m sorry my dear So let go of your fear I have no idea Why we are here I’m sorry my dear

No matter how much you say it You know you'll never know it That's how it is Nothing you can do about it That's how it is Just how it is Just how it is Maybe one day you'll see But you'll have to let it be That's how it is That's how it is Nothing you can do about it

In stormy weather - it was night All was black and white In the mountains near the ocean - like a picture of a woman standing Near the piano there where lightning strikes - the mountain tops There is a swan in full flight - over water calm there is a swan in flight Yet it is not Yet it is not It's stormy weather In stormy weather

You can tell me the truth If you can see it You can tell it to me If you can see it But if you can't see it Please tell me anyway 'Cause at the end of the day You can tell it to me Either way it's the same And you can tell it to me

Here's to the right eyed flounder We ate, together last night Now on the train after salted egg Two each, soft boiled, very nice Passing the ring, sea and rain I find my head hurts on the right As temples pass us by We’re heading north With Russia to the west, left North Pacific on our right The ocean between US and us Today is another day with you With ordinary things to do too In Sapporo, oh, in the rain, oh Hokkaido, Hokkaido

You being the one I love Are you the one the one I love despite your love You being the one I love In cliffs and falls we dwell to find out way beyond to be along - to be along our way beyond and on

Like a stranger How can I forget You came up close to me I didn't see it coming Hard against my back Things tore apart My hand felt the air There was no turning back Your face white with sweat The air was fading fast I could feel all things past Now it's time to forget Never to go back Never to go back

In the forest the animals stir and drink as they need to.

Beyond but near to the temple the dark glowing in the forest rises as one from the temple’s form out of the audible silence . . .
