Track Name: 2015-05-07 requiem
requiem

i found out today yr dead
& so for me today you died
i found out today yr dead
& so for me today you died

i hope it doesn’t hurt you
making you die for me today
you must have died so many times
& now you’ve died for me today

if i'd known you when you died
that day i could have cried
with Everyone who knew you then
with Everyone who loved you then
with Everyone…

but i found out today yr dead
& so for me today you died

& it’s not like i thought we’d meet
but i liked that you were there
& now there’s nothing
that we will ever share

except yr death today
except yr death today
except yr death today
except yr death today

i found out today yr dead
Track Name: 2015-05-08 i could insane myself (traffic song)
i could insane myself (traffic song)

i could insane myself
i could insane myself
listening to whatever symphony is at hand
listening to whatever symphony is at ear

i’m lulled to sleep by cars
i’m lulled to sleep by trucks
i’m lulled to sleep bicycles
and other traffic stuffs

i’m lulled to sleep by cars and trucks and not just traffic stuffs
but car noises, truck noises, startings and stallings and screechings and moanings
and other traffic stuffs

i’m lulled awake by cars
i’m lulled awake by trucks
i’m lulled awake bicycles
and other traffic stuffs

i’m lulled awake by cars and trucks and not just traffic stuffs
but car noises, truck noises, startings and stallings and screechings and moanings
and other traffic stuffs

i could insane myself
i could insane myself
listening to whatever symphony is at hand
listening to whatever symphony is at ear

i only know i’m sleeping when i wake up drool cheeked,
raged haired, wondering if i just missed a terrific traffic sound.

i could insane myself
i could insane myself
listening to the world’s thunderous symphony of spinning round
and round and round and round and round
and around and around and around and around and around and around

i could insane myself
i could insane myself
listening to one of dead John’s cages
Track Name: 2015-05-09 meditation on death (love song)
meditation on death (love song)


i meditate on my death every morning
& i meditate on my death every night
i meditate on my death every morning
& i meditate on my death every night

i meditate on inevitable death
everyday i see myself as dead
i meditate on inevitable death
everyday i see myself as dead
everyday i see myself as dead
everyday i see myself torn to shreds
by knives or gunfire, or struck by lightning
burnt in a fire or drowned in the river
dying slowly of a disease
shaken to death by a great earthquake
a fall from a thousand foot cliff to the sea

i meditate on my death every morning
& i meditate on my death every night
i meditate on my death every morning
& i meditate on my death every night
& since – i met you
since – i met you
i meditate on yr death every morning
& i meditate on yr death every night
i meditate on yr death every morning
& i meditate on yr death every night

i meditate on inevitable death
everyday i see you as dead
i meditate on inevitable death
everyday i see you as dead
electrocuting yourself with the toaster
i see you walking and hit by a bus
one day just knowing that you've left me
falling down stairs and breaking yr neck
shaken to death by a great orgasm
waking up one morning to find you gone

& you say it's inevitable
that we'll one day separate
even if we spend our whole lives together
one of us will die
we will each one day die
one of us will die

one of the most beautiful things
that anyone has ever told me
was that you think i could be
present for the moment of yr death
and it to not be a distraction
from the moment of yr death
from the experience of yr death
from the experience of yr death
for you believe that death's a new moment
that we experience always alone
death is a precious moment
that we experience always alone
another moment to experience
to experience alone
and other's company in that moment
could detract, could draw away
from yr mindfulness of the moment
mindfulness of the moment
death is a new moment
death is a new moment
rising and passing away
rising and passing away
rising and passing away

all of the moments that we have in this life
rise and fall – they all fade away
and we are just this moment
we are impermanent, each moment new
new every moment – every moment
every moment there is a new you
a new you every moment
every moment – we are anew

& i meditate on my death every moment
