What if the earth opened up beneath our feet?
Then all tomorrows might ignite on borrowed wings
And what if we saw through a million eyes set free?
Would we see bright light surrounding, cleansing thee?
Lead us not
Electric barbed wire - Rattle out that cage
Lead us not
Endless shadows that would bind you in blind rage ..."
I was listening to this CD over and over in that trip to London ... 13 years ago ... and there I was ... feeding the swans ... minding my own business ... when I saw her ... the bird version of me ... she was all alone biting everyone ... she didn't eat from me ... she refused all human contact ... and I thought: That's my girl ... "Lead us not unto temptation ..." I rather eat my worms from the bottom of the lake
" ... Lead us not
What if the language that was spoken was not our own?
Then you could bless my weary body-tongue to bone
And what if love was but a breath while falling down?
I might think in lesser shades while trailing you
All from palest gray to paler blue
Now have you found it?
Do you like it?
Yes, I do
What if I sucked you to dry fault and what if you let me?
Would you because what I no longer wished to see?
Empty core, obsidian
An iridescent red fire strangling you
And what if every dream you left behind was plausible?
Then time would tear itself asunder, nasty wound
A splitting image, jagged members dead too soon
What if you were not yourself, but bigger than?
Then I would surely fall in love with you again
Lead us not unto temptation"
