Crack in the Kootenays

***

this is a dream
there is a girl
a deadpan girl
a hollow girl
a hell of a shell of a local girl

i know this girl
from homeroom class
she seemed so fragile then like she was made of glass
she cracked, she cracked
but now she's back

this is a dream
but this is life
there is a girl
a hollow girl
i want to know what's in that void
i want to know what's in that void

she says hey, you wanna do some blow
i say i don't know, oh hell let's go

she says sheepishly
she says actually
she says that it's really rock, it's really rock, it's really

it's the
crack in the kootenays, it's the
hole in my head, it's the
chemical solution
to the problem i never had

rock and rock and rock and roll it
rock and roll

it's the
crack in the kootenays, it's the
hole in my head, it's the
chemical solution
to the problem i never had

rock and
rock and
rock and roll it
rock and roll (just give me a taste)

i hit the pipe
it hits me hard
i'm on fire, i'm on fire
not like pryor, it's figurative

i hit the pipe
it's in my head
the answer, positive, affirmative, the pain is dead dead dead

solid joy
pouring in
concrete pleasure physics, mechanistic bliss


rock and rock and rock and roll it
this will end soon
rock and rock and rock and roll it
this will end soon

where can i get
another hit
my life is strobing now, i need to find the switch


did you learn the diamond sutra in pre-school, or was it assumed?
i'm not sure what color eternity is
mental, physical, vegetable, mineral
lottery-winning animal
still primed for pain after all this evolution

what do you do with endorphins?
maybe you've done too much
rubbed out your spots
changed into the veil, a mucus membrane
between life and death

vitamin c will not fill the void
but i chew the tablet anyway
tasty citrus, and my health is improved, by micrograms
that may tip the fractal scales, turn a bad day into good
yeah right

you don't wanna see
what's inside
you don't wanna know
how it works

inner workings are a jerk off
in the land of hysterics, the stoic is king

i must simulate the innocence, simulate the innocence
cause i'll be guilty
to the end of this peaked earth

candied cortex tastes so sweet
peak pyramid scam, the pharaoh’s curse

drowning in embalming fluid
drowning in embalming fluid


searching for the genuine ethereal joy
concrete doesn't satisfy
eden's lost, eden's lost
and the machine is broken
concrete doesn't satisfy

searching for the genuine ethereal joy
novelty is old news, innocence is ancient
thinking man is just a broken toy
i am not a tweaker, i am not a tweaker

searching for the genuine ethereal joy (i am not a tweaker)
concrete doesn't satisfy
eden's lost, eden's lost
and the machine is broken

i have come
to the canadian land of the dead (i am not a tweaker)
via the rosebush covered tombstone

i have come
to the canadian land of the dead
via the
rosebush covered tombstone
via the
rosebush covered tombstone
through the crack in the kootenays

it's the
crack in the kootenays, it's the
hole in my head, it's the
chemical solution
to the problem i never had

rock and rock and rock and roll it
rock and roll, it's the

crack in the kootenays, it's the
hole in my head, it's the
chemical solution
to a problem i never had

rock and rock and rock and roll it
rock and roll it, yeah


life is a pretty sweet fruit
for as long as it lasts
are you living anymore
are you living anymore
life
is a pretty strange fruit
when you're hanging from the noose
are you living anymore
are you living anymore
life
is a pretty sweet fruit
when you're gorging on an orange
are you getting any pleasure
are you getting any vitamin c
life
is a chemical flux
are your chemicals fluxing
are you living anymore
are you living anymore
are you living anymore
are you getting any vitamin c

HtC,

Just wanted to say that I really, really loved this. It was epic...and don't worry, I'm using the good connotation for that one.
