about

(“If anything is holy, this body is holy” – Walt Whitman)

lyrics

The Path

I’ve heard it said you have fallen & you’re seeking shelter tonight.
And the ghost of your old hunger’s calling & you’re afraid to give him a bite.
If Love sends its dragons to snap at your heels,
Open to those teeth & welcome them nigh.
And if all you’ve revered falls under the wheel,
Let my body be the Path on which you arise…

And should those cards that they’ve dealt to you, shatter like glass at your door.
Should those broken bards that were felled for you, come to rest on my green forest floor,
And if Love comes a stranger to your blind savior’s farm,
Slip out of those raiments & open your arms.
And if Love burns your manger & blackens your skies,
Let my body be the Path on which you arise…

Many strangers may Love you, many worlds may collide.
Gaze into still water – tell me, whose gaze returns to your eyes?

Some people say that Love is so vast, wider than all truth & lies.
I say to you let my body be the Path by which you awaken & arise.
There’s a pearl on the floor of the venerable sea.
It’s been there in wait for you for ten thousand years.
Without drenching your dress, go & bring it to me,
And let my body be the Path on which you arise…
