Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Carry For You


if you look at the mask all day
that old mask will slip away
what is left is gristle and meat
arteries carry blood so sweet

veins and capillaries too
carry that blood, carry for you

if you listen to the submarine
you will hear an ocean dream
swimming in the open sea
just enough air for you and me

oxygen must go to the lungs
climb that tower of broken rungs

who are you?
who are you?
let me give you a clue:
you're katmandu

if you walk into the great beyond
you will skip across the pond
if you dive for a talisman
hold on tight and fight the hand

slowly let the bubbles rise
they will burst into the sky
swim like a tourist and a matador
flash your cape at the country store


who are you?
who are you?
let me give you a clue:
you're katmandu

if you look at the mask all day
that old mask will slip away
what is left is gristle and meat
arteries carry blood so sweet

veins and capillaries too
carry that blood, carry for you

if you listen to the submarine
you will hear an ocean dream
swimming in the open sea
just enough air for you and me

oxygen must go to the lungs
climb that tower of broken rungs

who are you?
who are you?
let me give you a clue:
you're katmandu
