Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

foot by foot in front of one to fill the sell of sale


Status Report 125

Beat the sun up out of bed
climb the gravity well
foot by foot in front of one to fill the sell of sale

Part Sisyphus part Tantalus
most rat wheel roll of race
in house of lie untried by true like time untied to space

Faith and fact divorce from act
the sheep dogs bark our stray
unless we toe official line the bankers bite and bray

Money rolls from bottom up
just some shit back down
as we bob and weave to please the rulings of the clowns

So I arise from lay of bed
to trudge this daily toll
even though rich and high rather buy than seek the source of soul

Let them rot
let them waste
may they eat dirt and no money taste

I will wake
I will rise
I will walk my road of why.
