about

A song about a disembodied life.

lyrics

time to start concentrating on which way I would turn after I locked the front door, what shop signs I would see, what bridges I would lean on to watch the broad river undulating, like a long-playing record under the needle of my eye. time to stand dripping wet and wonder about the hoards of people I would pass in the street, mostly people whose existence I did not believe in, but a few whom I would glance at and see my whole life the way you see the ocean. (Billy Collins)

I have a feeling that my boat
has struck down there in the depths
sinking heavy into my soul
nothing happens silence

or everything speaks quietly
now in this new life
the grinding of the galaxies
cuts through the tar-stained sky

I wanna see my whole life
the way you see the ocean from the shore

I wanna see my whole life
the way you see the ocean from the shore

letting go of a slanderous heart
while shelling beans in the heat
in this endless century
may we ride off in peace

mountains and stars whirling, tumbling
a bowl of milk, the rush of night
the moon settles comfortably
on the ground. travel light

I wanna see my whole life
the way you see the ocean from the shore

I wanna see my whole life
the way you see the ocean from the shore

I wanna see my whole life
the way you see the ocean from the shore
