they supplied him with ad infinitum intuition
and he made it his confessional
before he went professional
known to use questions as answers
just to dance around oppositional conversation
knowing he's the element within the equation
that causes the tangents to start
with that tangled up in blue situation
cognitive dissonance is amiss
and it looks like this
so i collect evidence and stay honest
the prince that was promised
wishing on a star to be swallowed by a comet
isn't that sardonic, don't you think?
sink into the sarcasm
average cats cannot fathom
i turned the children of the atom into orphans
distortion of good fortune
torture chamber for a stranger
turned namer of names
that are outside the frame

i remember when the numbness was an abstract
cowboy funk, then it all goes to black
somewhere in the back of my mind
if i rewind far enough and take a step in reverse
the curse will be broken
this is my token of gratitude
from parts unknown to Xanadu to Atlantis
i'll plant this seed even though
everybody knows 'we do not sow'
is the manifesto
my nonchalance seems to get a response
from the people on the outside of
the psychedelic renaissance
i am a savant from the upper eschelon
and much further beyond
short timers turning thrill seekers like flatliners
the new miner at the dial-a-view
might consider you to have an aura
with a dangerous hue that he cannot subdue

venomous menaces with skewed visages
give derivative opinions
as they roll deeper than minions
every individual earth angel gets their own world engine
and then some
i cold get dumbfounded when i'm surrounded
on all sides by those who are not grounded in reality
hopes for creation of an uncommon casualty
whose mentality shifts radically
corners that convey tindalos doorways
will amaze if you do not avert your eyes or shoegaze
being phased is a blessing
for each destination the journey will be the lesson
even the infinitesimal holds a credible influence
you couldn't put a finger on
or even hear a decibel of
qualify it hands down as a dose of acceptable love
