shining, blooming, sweet & bleeding heart of fragrant traumas fixed in amber wielding hope like an antidote when despair is what's there but oh what's in between these folds of time what's in between us gotta bow down to the queen the queen bow down to the queen dredging up the pain of colonial projects we shudder and shake we are changed deranged by these stories there's no glory thinking about the problem won't fix it pushing harder won't take you there you gotta touch the tender center it's foolish to breathe, but we must we must allow ourselves to grieve so muscle up throw your belly full of burdens down to the ground throw your belly down put it on the ground she's fat! she's flush! and full of juice! so bring it bring it and find the me in you you focus get bigger touch touch touch it now the world hurts but don't be afraid to be powerful in service to her majesty and give the people what they want give the people what they want let yourself collapse and feel the firing synapse (burn baby burn baby burn baby burn baby burn baby burn baby burn baby burn baby burn) you make me love you i mean i wanted to do something for me just bow down to the queen it's a dream we all weave (dream we all weave dream we all weave) she's blooming she's blooming she's blooming she's blooming yeah whoa whoa whoa whoa

i was me on a highway trailing blue slime behind me looking forward to a journey through the dark and formless night and before me a chimera, part owl part frog where the path forks left and the path forks right and she told me "i hear the song of your soul" and she said "which path will you take" it was a trick it looped right back to where we came from that same place, that same false dichotomy and i said "deeper, take me deeper" i wanna go down below and dig down deep to where the roots explore the soil and behold, a cave of treasures opened up below sparkling and colorful, lit by fire within, but then on closer inspection it was pizza boxes soda bottles broken glass and plastic the un-repented sins of the generations through the veil, i became bloodied by their tears well the tears are made of glass and the treasure is all trash and you love it, you must love it, for this is our creation and the ancestors they see you and the ancestors they are you and in your lovers eyes you see the arms that span the centuries encircle you with love so be careful where you walk and take care of who you touch back out on the path with your one slug foot and your coat of many arms you meet a priestess of the stars with her cloak made of light and she looks you in the eye and you say "i trust the song of your soul" i lost myself somewhere and at some point i became you hope you enjoyed my body now you know how i move with strength and endurance and a minimal assurance that those who come near won't have too much to prove for we all must learn to treasure what is here
