Poetry and Song Lyrics by Gypsy

 

Worship

Ask why
chocolate is
smooth as sleep
sweet as death
a crushing flood of eternity
in a lazy moment

 

AURORA

WINTER SKY SHE BURNING BRIGHT
COME ALIVE WITH DANCING LIGHT
COLOR RACING THROUGH THE NIGHT
RIBBON GREEN AND PINK AND WHITE

NORTHERN LIGHTS MURMUR LOW
CALL ATTENTION TO THE GLOW
TALK STORY FROM LONG TIME AGO
IN A LANGUAGE WE ALL KNOW

HEAR THE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART
STRIFE WILL KEEP US ALL APART
PEACE THE MESSAGE, NOW WE START
WITH LOVE THE HEALER, LOVE THE ART

FACES LIFTED TO THE SKY
HANDS TOGETHER, SPIRITS HIGH
IN THIS MOMENT, YOU AND I
SISTER, BROTHER, UNIFY

NIGHTTIME SKY IS LIVING LIGHT
SPIRIT SOARING, HEART'S DELIGHT
SHOWER BLESSING FROM ABOVE
WISDOM, HUMOR, FAITH AND LOVE

Alison King Dec. 1994

 

THE LAST DANCE

WE HOLD OURSELVES TOGETHER
WITH SAFETY PINS AND LEATHER
MASKING TAPE, A DAB OF SUPER GLUE
THE LAST TEARS ARE CRIED
IT'S ENVIRONMENTAL SUICIDE
WE'RE BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE
YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE

OH PEOPLE PEOPLE, DON'T YOU SEE WHAT'S UP
DON'T YOU RECOGNIZE WHAT'S GOING DOWN?
OH PEOPLE PEOPLE, LET'S NOT GIVE UP
LET'S NOT GIVE IN WITHOUT A SOUND
CRY OUT FOR FREEDOM, CRY OUT FOR LOVE
CRY OUT FOR KINDNESS AND GRACE
SING OUT FOR LAUGHTER, SCREAM OUT YOUR PAIN
REFUSE TO DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND
THIS COULD BE THE FINAL ROUND
WE'LL END UP IN THE MUSEUM OR THE ZOO
HAVE YOU LOOKED AROUND YOU LATELY?
IT'S EITHER LOVE ME OR IT'S HATE ME
IT'S EITHER BLACK AND WHITE OR BLACK AND BLUE

WE'VE CHANGED THE COLOR OF THE SKY
BUT WE AREN'T ASKING WHY
WE AREN'T ASKING HOW WE CAN CLEAN IT
WE LOBBY AND COMPLAIN
OF GASOLINE AND ACID RAIN
WE SAY WE WANNA HELP
BUT WE DON'T MEAN IT

AND WHILE WE HOLD OURSELVES TOGETHER
USING SAFETY PINS AND LEATHER
WE CAN LIFT OUR VOICES IN APPEAL
HEY! RIP OFF YOUR MASKS
THERE ARE QUESTIONS WE MUST ASK
WE'VE GOT TO FIND A WAY THAT WE CAN HEAL

MAY I HAVE THIS ONE LAST DANCE?
IT MIGHT BE OUR ONE LAST CHANCE
TO AVOID CREATING COSMIC STEW

 

Chemotherapy

Well they told me I had something that could kill me someday
But when that might happen, they couldn't really say
"We'll watch it for awhile, see how it progresses
Then decide if you want treatment, tho' the rate of success is
Pretty dismal when you look close - it only works for some,
But it's all we've got, ya wanna try it, little one"?

oh chemo, chemotherapy

They said it could cause a decrease in mental acuity
And depression too - oh great! Suicidal stupidity!
I was hoping for the weight loss they also warned about
No such luck, my dears, but my hair is falling out
So now i'm fat and stupid, have hardly any hair
I'm too depressed to kill myself and too damn tired to care

oh chemo, chemotherapy

Waking in the morning is like getting hit by a train
My skin hurts, my bones burn, there's a buzzing in my brain
But they tell me there's improvement in my overall condition
And they're hopeful i will get to have a total remission
The side effects are almost just as bad as the disease
But since it seems to work on me… could i have some more please?

oh chemo, chemotherapy
