life is a happy place
to laugh and sing and work all day
make your friends and bide your time
this gift of fruit is so sublime

but if you find yourself diseased
or overwhelmed with misery
leave your tent and seek the center
leave your house and seek defenders

sacrificing your soul to the techno shaman
a superficial token for the common brahmin

we fill our plate with silly issues
ignore vibrations in our tissues
they issue forth yet we ignore
our god's ass bounces on the dance floor
