She climbed into the backseat and kinda flipped her lid and said
"Give me something for nothing, like pillgrims in the olden days.
how did they buy their mailorder brides
Like those S&H green stamps that get stuck on the page?
He said, "Not until the Indian girl screws with the son of the Amazon Queen..."
Like the frozen cherry dillybar
Valentino hearts and chocolate coffeebeans...
Then she asked for acceptance to Rock and Real heaven,
By the grace of its light and the heart of its status
Two weeks before and she was still not a hundred percent,
But of course we all know everything  was gratis.
So what are we supposed to do with that deal?
the blue
the red
the purple mix...
You gotta do what you got to do,
Tattoo on your heart and your command and my wish.
So when the car stops at the red light district,
It's like "go fly a kite..."
Gotta get it to leave
Left or right, honey,
It could go either way,
But the value of peace is just a blue note away..."


The Mush Room
...and then, she'd laugh and smile and jest
She certainly was quite a pest
They said, "goodbye" and wished her all the l.u.v. and happiness
But everyone has trouble keeping it together
Like a pea in the pod or a prayer to God
Or two birds on a feather
And those who could help her shoot straight from the hip
Without so much as making a list
Could not be found to care or support her
Instead, they shot her down and made good sport (hurt)
But it wasn't like she belonged in their holding pens
As to where she committed that crime and when
Because they said "shut up" and ignored her "claims" and turned the girl around
And those debts she had made her feel so bad
She still had her mom but she'd lost her dad
But still it felt so sad inside,
Although she didn't make a sound*
And in the end she found out that "who you are" is not necessarily the way to go
The way to go without bearing arms
The way to go towards peace and karma
"...come join the crowd at the Mush Room, manse,
Where those who want to just get up and dance...

*the "silent" thing is just a release that happens with repercussive feelings...
  "my soul wings" is certainly the thing to do now, right? Roll Eyes

later
