MANIFEST DESTINY

PHILLY FRINGE 2019

 

 

A FIRE IN THE MIRROR

 

A fire in the mirror

A boiling course through rivers and streams

A fountain of blood

Oh how my mind has given itself unto treacherous graspings

And torrid indignation

 

A drop of thought becomes fixation

As into the fabric of obsession is absorbed

One who was made to skip on the surface

 

This web woven within me bends of its own accord

Girded with the strength and the power I’ve surrendered unto it

Like a child lost and afraid

Having had his sight removed yet seeking refuge with the remover

 

I’ve sought to befriend the destroyer

Too afraid to abide in the light

 

So far has the pendulum swung in the way of my demise

I scarcely have the strength to tread this path

And undertake my own salvation

 

Yet this knowing of captivity ushers dissipation

Like a prisoner having abandoned hope

Being given a gift by which to forge his liberation

 

 

 

MANIFEST DESTINY

 

Ships, the shaman said

The white man cometh west

To claim the land

Given by his god’s hand

 

And they trespass against our source

And treat our land like their whore

I fight to remain

I fight to usher away

 

And they tell us of their god in the sky

Who’ll avenge them on a great day of fire

That unless we follow all his decrees

Woe to we

 

For the land on which you stand

Is not for thee

For the crucified has bought it for we

And unless you give it up willingly

Woe to thee

 

Well I say

Who is your god?

Who will send me to hell while you favor well?

 

I would rather burn

Than give my land into your hands

 

For surely this god can’t be the one

Called Jesus

 

His great love knows no end

But cross him and face judgment

We won’t be to blame

The day you’re taken by flame

 

Take a drop of truth

Spread it out into a maze

That we cannot maneuver through

 

Come and tell me of your god in the sky

Who’ll avenge you on your great day of fire

That unless we follow all his decrees

Woe to we

 

Who is your god?

Who will send me to hell while you favor well?

 

I would rather burn

Than give my land into your hands

 

For surely this god can’t be the one

Called Jesus

 

 

 

BITTE

 

Bit by bit they slowly unheard her

And found a sister guilty of murder

Then upon her life they threw

A piece of vengeance gone askew

 

When oh when to being them in

The one to whom the fault is given?

 

He’s there

 

Then upon their heads compose

A sentence fit for soiled clothes

To rate a light in starless night

Is every man’s frying pan

 

Yet unto to he is given

Free will to break society

 

He’s there

 

Ring around the damage now, my dear

Turn around and face your wall of fear

And say you’ll be mine

Say you’ll be mine

 

He’s there

Many will say he’s there

 

 

 

DARKNESS

 

I watch your every move and circle it

I am the monster in your closet

I watch and feed on you

I watch your every move

 

I am the one your Father told you to fear

I am the one who brought the nightmares

I am the one who’ll find you, my dear

I am the one, your ancient fear

 

Greater shall the catastrophes become

Because of me

Greater shall destruction be

Greater, because of me

 

I watch your every move and circle it

I am the monster in your closet

I watch and feed on you

I watch your every move

 

Fear me now

 

Just pierce the veil, and you will see

How much I’m already inside of thee

Just pierce the veil and walk with me

Just pierce the veil and that I am here

 

To help you

In your being

And becoming

In your being

 

Without me

There is no joy

Without me

You are alone

 

No light

Without me

No light

Without me

 

 

 

HEIRS OF ROME

 

We’re gonna snuff you out

It’s a boys club now

We see you’re by his side

But not for long

 

We’ll snuff you out

Change your name

Put another name on your face

 

Cheater cheater Peter

Tie her up and beat her

Burn her at the stake

Defend the lies with which you feed her

Compromise the truth unto the thought that you don’t need her

 

Cheater

Hijacking the light

Greed and power-fights

Banish her to night

 

Name his queen a whore

And take all your heart desires

‘Till tide is turned

And truth returned

 

Cheater cheater Peter

Tie her up and beat her

Burn her at the stake

Defend the lies with which you feed her

Compromise the truth unto the thought that you don’t need her

 

But what you would never count on

Is she’d come back with your face

And liberate herself

She’s come to take the keys

 

Born into his chains

Yet bound only to break all chains

Off of herself

 

Great halls of stone and gold

Tombs of the dead

More glorious than the homes of the living

 

Popes and priests

Live like kings

Renunciates indeed

 

Cheater cheater Peter

Tie her up and beat her

Burn her at the stake

Defend the lies with which you feed her

Compromise the truth unto the thought that you don’t need her

 

Goddess tied to trees and burned

Usurping whoredom takes its turn

‘Till beast is cast in the fire

All your heart desires

 

For none will overtake her throne

Her truth is sealed in stone and bone

Awaiting for the keys

To turn and grant release

 

Release from fears and boys club gods

And cock-filled years of sword and spears

So flowers bloom where sacred tomb

Stood and turned us from the womb

 

May all life live

May all life live

Receptive give

Like love

 

May all life live

May all life live

Receptive give

And let love live

 

 

 

AND SO IT GOES

 

Lord, I wanna follow a dream and fly away

Lord, I wanna follow a dream and fly away

It’s that I’m missing a real hallow

I’m missing a real hallow

 

I don’t wanna waste your time

Pretending you’re the right one for me

How could I bring you by the fire?

Pretending you’re the right one for me

 

And so it goes down while you’re here

 

 

 

MAGDALENE

 

Do tell me one more time

How I have sinned

Sinned against the church

And against my fellow man

 

How I’ve sinned against myself,

First and foremost

Coming here is where the guilt starts

 

It’s been said what I do is ugly

But I see it beautiful

 

Toward forsaken land

His womb and his seed are fled

Praying for the day truth will pave a way

Recapturing the seven realms

 

I let you in

I say you bring to me nothing

But pain and grief

 

And I abandoned me

 

The great that is become invisible

To our eyes full of want

The great that sparkles lucidity

Into the playground of my mind

And generates the fire

That burns in the depths of me

Melting me into itself

And into the things I’ve hidden away so well

 

In the womb I held her,

Child of Yeshua

Unto me, holy seed

And promise long foreseen

 

Do tell me one more time

How I have sinned

 

Never again

Never again

 

 

 

RECKONING

 

Like unto my drama

He is bursting at the seams

Nowhere to run

Nowhere to hide from he

 

He is overtaking every breath I had in me

Nowhere to run

Nowhere to hide

Free me

 

Well I don’t know which way to go

Seems my path has always led me

Deva, well, she came to me

Change is on the breeze

 

Deva, seems the world and me

We don’t agree

 

Then she said

Fear not my son

Fear not my earth

For I am with thee

 

Like unto a hunter

Fear, it chases after me

Nowhere to run

Nowhere to hide

Free me

 

Well I’ve not any place to run

All I knew has come undone

Deva, well, she came to me

Change is on the breeze

 

Deva, seems the world and me

We don’t agree

 

Then she said

Fear not my son

Fear not my earth

For I am with thee

 

Become the light

Your day draws nigh

You’ll never tire

 

Like a child in her hands

“I don’t think you understand

I don’t know which way to go

I don’t think you want from me

Anything but honesty

He’s the only one for me”

 

Seek ye first my child

The kingdom of heaven

And all these things

Shall be added unto you

 

Said the man to his source,

“Why hast thou created war?”

 

Son, today your eyes shall see

The part it plays in destiny

 

“Many thousand years have we fought toward this destiny.”

 

Son, today your eyes shall see

Son, today your reckoning

You are the light

Your day draws nigh

You’ll never tire

 

You are the light

Your day draws nigh

You and I will never part

 

 

 

EDEN

 

Born into man

Waging war upon his land

Apple from a tree

Deceived we

 

Not the Eden I’d been hoping for

Grabbed my things and headed out the door

And having fled

Encountered death

 

Seems endlessly

Have I reaped of my foul deeds

Blind to Her majesty

Speak to me, false need

 

Not the Eden I’d been hoping for

Grabbed my things and headed out the door

And having fled

Encountered death

 

Then a whisper gently in my ear

Gave unto me

Sought-after key

 

My child, it’s time you held the key

Deep calleth unto deep

You calleth unto me

 

Flowers bloom, my child, in the midst of every spring

Hear what I say to thee

Deep calleth unto deep

This day you would be free

 

Ever in my ear

Call unto me sought-after key

For you and me

 

You’re the Eden you’ve been waiting for

Rise within, my child and weep no more

 

And you will see

All that you lack

Has been within

So take it back

 

 

 

RAPTURE

 

Bring me the rapture

Come take me over

Say I mishandled my lover

 

An out-of-line bride

In need of a bridle

A mare in the wild

In need of a saddle

 

Ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we’ve been waiting for

Ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we need

 

They have become wise

In their own eyes

And mongered their fears

To lead us to paradise

 

Time to stand up

If you’ve had enough

Our heaven in now

Drink of our golden cup

 

And ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we’ve been waiting for

Ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we need

 

I’m listening, my love

Your voice is being heard

Anointed are your words to conquer death

Yours, the voice of heaven

 

Bring me your rapture

Come take me over

Say I mishandled my lover

 

You out-of-line brides

In need of a bridle

You mares in the wild

Throw off your saddles

 

And ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we’ve been waiting for

Ride on, my little saints

For we are all the saviors we need

 

I’m listening, my love

Anointed are your words

 

Our time is now

Now is all we have, my loves
