& Eveline

Took a powder from a life  

of a carrion type

mystery meats

in the dull before dawn, O

 

I was brought up

in the early night

said 'oh, well 

alright' with eyes

on the mountains

since my work as 

a young girl

 

But now way 

way  New Age

way way New Age

 

From the cradle with a bang

to the Garden State I came

when a voice sang to me 

and this exactly what it said:

 

'Will you be the rose to the stone?

Will you come to drive the needles' own?

They'll say what they'll say

O and you'll translate it, O

The morning from night'

 

Way way out of the way

Way way out of the way

 

Yet, fully formed I sprang

the wind in my cell rang

I came all the way up the vein of interstate

 

To be the rose the stone

a bloom of new flesh on the bone

O, say what you'll say

O, honey I'll translate it, O

the morning from night

 

The jet into a powder form of light

taken at the head of a new life

once more you make it through the night

on the floor the sleepers open wide

a door to the feeder of the fire

sings me to life on the vine
