Kon Tiki Parabola On the farthest island - now just looking back Kon Tiki’s good enough to leave With sudden indecision - and a rusty intuition Described in my citation - The subtle bas-relief Is it remaining in a dream? Evading our detection - until I’m sure of our direction When I made the choice to always stay at home And never brag untrue More valuable than all you left behind There was nothing I could do to change your mind. Slip from the dark asylum Never looking back Through the cold long distant trees The fortunate Canaries Told the whisper that he carries to you. When I made the choice to always stay at home And never brag untrue More valuable than all you left behind There was nothing I could do to change your mind

It’s the cat’s gale say nobody should stray from home Rats trail in the wake of an argosy unknown Drifting sleeping Set sail for the others return alone Dove-tailed till direction no longer was their own Like the wizards of wind who for themselves can defend Against the masthead showers unforgiving They return to the living Pour toujours en mer noire Le Coeur reve d’un autre soir Lost in the roar of the wave, no one to save So far gone the singing of fabled tunes you’ll never know The Argon is ringing, farewell brave Apollo All pray on the edge of a rocky shore A long stay for survivors to ply the sea no more On the way to the end with the waves to contend As they seek the morning like a sun king And return to the living Oh, la lune regarde la mer Et mes yeux sont sous la terre Lost in the roar of the wave – no one to save So far gone the singing of fabled tunes you’ll never know The Argon is ringing, farewell brave Apollo. They’ll return to the living Pour toujours en mer noire C’est l’heure de notre histoire Lost in the roar of the wave, no one to save So far gone the singing of fabled tunes you’ll never know The Argon is ringing, farewell brave Apollo.

Something happened on the way to Karri and the inlet city was a nightmare Almost every note we played, no matter how obscure Came through without the fanfare Let go of my hand and step out Of the rain into the field alone Still be a tidal wave tapping your phones Now you can sing in even tones Woke up lying on the floor my favorite chandelier was swinging in the hallway Locked from opening the door one clever balladeer who lead me to the foyer Where the samurai demonstrate Monsters of Karri Mia steal the show Poverty counterweighs nothing he owes Of Harley Granville-Barker prose And he seemed to know If you could draw me so honestly And not pretend too obviously To poison lowly cities till they glow If someone only could erase that part of me Let go of my hand and step out Of the rain into the field alone Still be a tidal wave tapping your phones Now you can sing in even tones And the phones rang all day

Why would you bore me, tell me your story About the time when you traveled to far off places and you never came back Told your old shipmates, “I’m taking a trip mates” This crazy fool takes to fantasy without knowing where he’s going Well I hope you found the paradise we’re all looking for … The sky’s always clear and there’s never a gale There’s a star to the north and a wind in your sail You’re never alone with the maids of the sea Singing the song that you once sang to me How you’ll hear the music play in Fiddler’s Green some day It could’ve gone better – your picture, your letter They can’t explain why you traded your home for treasure Will you ever come back? (Guitar solo) The sky’s always clear and there’s never a gale There’s a star to the north and a wind in your sail You’re never alone with the maids of the sea Singing the song that you once sang to me How you’ll hear the music play in Fiddler’s Green some day Now Fiddler’s Green is a place I’ve heard tell Where the sailors all go if they don’t go to hell Is this where you want to be at the ends of the open sea? The sky’s always clear and there’s never a gale There’s a star to the north and a wind in my sail I’m out here alone with a skeleton crew Singing the song that I once sang to you

It’s loud in the field of geological silence Like a sleeping volcano on a tropical island A steam from the sea heading straight for the clouds Here’s the opening scene for appreciative crowds. All the lights going down now, the lava is flowing In the night all around expectations are growing See the vagabond king, the imperial clown As they’re starting to sing an explosion of sound … No matter what they want, or what they ask of you Keep on rocking if you need to With a pyroclastic galactic teaspoon Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon. Sparks in the air and the ashes are glowing And they’re feeding the waves so they just keep on rolling The beat from the music is reaching the sky In a curtain of fire 50,000 feet high No matter what they want or what they ask of you Keep on rocking if you need to With a pyroclastic galactic teaspoon Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon Stars are rising all around Don’t let gravity pull you down Just keep your feet up off the ground with lunar-tic shoes Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon. As they’re rushing the stage, they’re unwilling to go It’s the ultimate scene at the end of the show. No matter what they want or what they ask of you Keep on rocking if you need to With a pyroclastic galactic teaspoon Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon Stars are rising all around Don’t let gravity pull you down Just keep your feet up off the ground with lunar-tic shoes Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon. Keep your feet up off the ground but what can you do? Leave your name when you take a bite out of the moon.

The hammer swings The silver sings And here they bring the line to tap the rails In all impressed From East to West A cast of thousands wearing Iron, feathers, top hat and tails For all the people passing by the windows And all the people running by the side No sooner steam arise - the whistle's blowing So many climb aboard to take the ride. On broken ground They stood around Carving trails in the desert setting A letter signed That you will find Behind the picture of the Mountain Wedding and buried inside (“promontory bride”) For all the people passing by the windows And all the people running by the side No sooner cinder flows, the cash vault's blowing In riding up – will they escape their ties? Throwing fool's gold out of the windows Throwing silver pieces by the side The crowds are growing, the safe floor’s showing Too many, all aboard, and take the prize

Staring out at your glass model While you wait patiently To close the capsule and spin the bottle Spilling into the sea And now, there's a ship that's cast in a stormy ocean A lonely port to follow the constellation just a stone's throw away. Signal out to a vast horizon Kicking rocks on the shore I can hear you at last for I've been Laid to rest on the floor And now, there's a ship out on the ocean Thoughts are mist and lost in a sinking motion Set out a course and follow the constellation just a stone's throw away. From the darkness the tide is breaking Navigate on a star All the seconds the hands are taking Time to know who you are And now there's a ship out on the ocean Thoughts are mist and lost in a sinking motion Set out of course and follow the constellation just a stone's throw away There's a shipwreck of emotion Solar flare-up drown in the radi-ocean Set out a course and follow the constellation just a stone's throw away.

With incognizant eyes lending proof with a stare that you may as well be strapped to your electric chair and the colander ground make me straighten my face In the hospital rooms with the color tvs and the autocratic nurses push the needles up my sleeve to calm my paranoid phase It came as a shock when I found I was cutting down my own you're better off laying in a ditch then the ones that made it home So to spare the details about the holes in my hands they send me down beneath them where the Aleister stands and the colander ground make me straighten my face In the hospital rooms with the color tvs and the autocratic nurses push the needles up my sleeve to calm my paranoid phase I didn't want to have to see you help them of your own accord sadly pushing caskets off the starboard

In the golden age On the ocean’s stage We sail to novel lands Leave adept an heir That no Mason’s square Would slide out through our hands Hidden well no eye can see Save for those who found New Coventry But for now they’re safe With one sure escape Leave the mother shore behind Borrowed wealth in gowns Where the capstone crowns our sense of history Hold to understand the emblematic hand’s symbolic mystery Dampen scrolls of fire’s reprieve So when thought to be found again deceive But for now they’re safe With one sure escape Leave the mother shore behind Though our fathers Know “As above, so below” These words are fading fast But for now they’re safe With one sure escape Leave the mother shore behind Turning cold and grey For one hundred days Down sixty fahrenheit As the winds prevail So the crook and flail Are ruled by guiding light Fire flies once lost believed Shining one by land or two by sea But for now they’re safe With one sure escape Leave the mother shore behind

People tell me I’m always on the outside But Holly told me she knew me from the inside-out When I look in her eyes Holding hands by my side Hoping we’ll have years to try Then she left me standing by the street lights Illuminati really turned me upside-down As a sign of the times, derivations aside And the countless tears we cried By candlelight, I can’t decide Should I believe in her magic anymore? Cinderella’s raining on a Tuesday My umbrella’s opened up that old cliché If I turned her away when she started to play I could bring back yesterday. January, sleeping by the fire-side February, searching for a place to hide When I asked her why, said she just couldn’t lie About the feelings we denied By candlelight, I can’t decide Should I believe in her magic anymore. All around us they call her by her show name How they found us I only have myself to blame For some reason I can’t remember By candlelight I can’t decide Should I believe in her magic anymore. And she played Ah, I believed her I believed her Ah, I believed her I believed her Yes, I believed her People tell me I’m really on the outside.

If I’ve told you a hundred lies, then 101 is true. What’s the use? Why apologize? And what good would it do? Now we’re following different paths that lead us both away from a love that could never last -- there’s no one who would stay. If I could only show her, if we just start it over -- Would she remember? Would she wonder why All the words that we said, I can’t recall – What was once a drop became a waterfall. I know we said we’d try – But now it’s time for us to say goodbye. If you’ve told me a thousand times, I’ll tell you less is more. Maybe now we’ll begin to realize, we’ve done this all before. Why eclipse what the sun will let shine and turn our world around? Why would this be considered a crime – a voice without a sound? I tried to talk it over, but we just argued over … So staying silent was my alibi. All the words that we said, I can’t recall – What was once a drop became a waterfall. I know we said we’d try – But now it’s time for us to say goodbye.

Applied Blue Location Crowds around the Turing machine From ceil to grounding all in between For the gates controlling the stream Occluding the sounds of small gatherings One day the keys were loaned to me But not to leave you on display A silent strain Is taking you away I think about what I’m saying It’s not wrong, it’s not right I was queued into playing with the strong telluride Wild fire is locking down tight A desolate town flying over at night Standing air forms a plane oversight That it couldn’t survive on the left or the right Tears flow like steel bearings rolling around the circuit of a drain I can’t relay the role that you’ve replayed I think about what I’m saying It’s not wrong it’s not right I was queued into playing with the strong telluride.
