Forever Reoccurring Gong : The Universe Also Collapses There is only now you know Proof, if proof be need be It’s happening all at once And it always will be It's coming round again Annihilation Put a fire to all you are Your initiation Is between the meaning of another meaning and behind the meaning more And behind the meaning is another meaning and between the meaning more Is the language blinding From the light inside the verse? Do you need reminding Of the meaning of the words? Now it’s going faster, always going faster, really going faster now All the moments that make up a life Forever at once reoccurring On the one side a devil alive On the other an angel is stirring Every birth has a dying inside Planets rotate off their axes In the fiery explosion of light The universe also collapses Unborn watchers at large All and everyone Unilluminated spiral Inside and out Pulsing signals Charge of the air Cast no light at all Never die and never changing Outside and in Spirits blink off and on Disappear from sight Neither dead nor living Unborn watchers at large All the moments that make up a life Forever at once reoccurring On the one side a devil alive On the other an angel is stirring Well this is the moment And now is the time You've forgotten to remember how There is only now If never I'm crazy And ever you mind While a million buzzing signals sound White light all around Light all borne around Forever reoccurring And ever we wind Fast awaking through a timeless dream None of this is real All and you are me

If Never I’m And Ever You Gong : The Universe Also Collapses Star burn, growing inwards unstartled, pale departure of angels Explorations and madness, destinations that they came Blazing visions of burning, flammable always blinding Apparitions of fire, luminescent and they were, they were golden. Grounded, charred, all broken Subsided, get so high on the vapours Glowing embers, spectators Burnt to cinders alive They were, they were golden They are, they are golden If never I’m crazy and ever you mind

My Sawtooth Wake Gong : The Universe Also Collapses Faceless charge, am I astern, distraught? Storms emerge, unanchored, seething, caught up Drowners fate, transmissions, ends of men Fare beneath Hecate pale entry Tides and timings Times and tide Spirit bright from the stars Rustling like dead leaves she falls down Unseen by radar, wonderment all cast off alone Lost, rudderless adrift, in the beginning of all things Returning to all things Rains, hail and heavy, whirlpool and snare Windward they dragging, darkest ocean fair No gales, no warning, my sawtooth wake Gives me the shivers, mercy Masthead a-breaking, bolt in her starts She trembles, she shivers, wasted What moves in the water? And whips up the sea white? What rings in the whistling That splashes all zig-zagging down? Wet vicious pitchpoling, Leviathan rolling knockdown Breathing the ocean in And I’m breathing the ocean into myself Wide awake these tropics Host my sawtooth wake Sink to climates under Kinder seas to take Spirit bright from the stars Rustling like dead leaves she falls down She falls down

The Elemental Gong : The Universe Also Collapses Flicking through the pages, I’ve forgotten every word The lines are meaningless, the photographs are blurred And when I close the book, the story opens again Eden born, a golden dawn, revolving hallucination That comes into us breathing, semi-conscious, half-awake And never leaves us alone All at large it’s plasma charged and washing onto my map As I look into the meaning, half submerged the memory of A hundred million buzzing signals, shaking flesh from my bones And the elemental spirits take me for their own And put to fire everything we’ve ever known The dawn of history the golden age of man The world is ending just the same as it began Unaware but everywhere, don’t mention the open casket When you’re looking for a reason, white light shines from silver words All over you, over me I’ve got the medicine and if you’ve got the time Let’s take another ride through this crazy terrifying life Another season in the sun and then The elemental spirits take me for their own And put to fire everything we’ve ever known The dawn of history the golden age of man The world is ending just the same as it began Ending now A hundred million buzzing signals Shake all the flesh from your bones Uncollision, all collapsing fast now Unexpiring, all familiar Falling apart on its own Elemental spirits take me home The elemental spirits take me for their own And put to fire everything we’ve ever known The dawn of history the golden age of man The world is ending just the same as it began The world is ending just the same as it began Ending now Ending now Remember there is only now
