Bring Back the Dying to Life

bring back the dying to life

shame on me if i dont give myself to the world

i am everybodys disciple

teaching my crippled mind while it's heavy as iron

ah you swines

 

so far in my dying

there has been

twice i was alive

the river shivered, then the sea screamed (with us)

do you remember these?

please, let it have been

how it will one day be

 

so lets bring back the dying to life

shame on me if i don't give myself to the world

and in the end there'll be smiles

recollecting the joys that we plugged into our lonely holes

 

so far in my dying

the murk has revealed

twice i was alive

beyond meditated streams

i need you to remember

what you never believed

that the beauty i saw in you

is real
