Riddlesnake Blues

from by Arbor Labor Union



what did the sermon on the signpost at the steep part of the summit say?
the pioneers of yesteryears new frontiers were not the first ones here didja hear?
and the neon sign behind the mind says the three eyed man is the one most blind, walk out the outdoor outdoorsmen!
then a fiddle played a riddle that split my brain right through the middle
cartoon balloons arose at noon and wen they burst they play'd me some groovy tunes! psychic palms sing swan song psalms that calm the bombs and kill all the dot coms!
so today ill clear things up said the dirty mirror to the crystal cup, im gon face my fears or disappear to where down turns into up. then the tribes inside completely died and they call'd is selfish genocide and until now ive really tried to stand by yor side but you gotta wait coz this weight i carry is gonna kill me...
the heavy loads went down commodes the open roads the one least closed pay back yor debt when death lends you a token or the promise that you made to live is broken
the undone opposites came up with a hypothesis freedom without free is simply dom then the thumb started to hum if i had for fingers i could strum or drum in a band on a magick land in a place we call a planet then all the oaths they got on boats but the boats would never float coz the coats worn by the liars were heavy and the moat swallode the oaths like oats slooow and steaaddyyy eyey this comedy is not for me said dante to the flaming sea but the captain of the ship took a whip straight from his hip and said "ots only a river and u gotta be a dead man to cross it! if you got any possessions im gonna toss it!" his guide beside came from behind as Dante cried "this man's my bride and i am his eternal partner! WE COME DIVINE WITH LOVE ALONE AS ARMOR!" then the dream burst through the seams and carried its screams within its streams to cling between the free and imprisoned but the seeds and trees grow where they please without permission. the snake went to the lake and drank its water to stay awake then an earthquake began to shake like a tambourine jelly bean shot by a submarine submachine and when the dust died down death had everybodys attention but the earth jiust wans to make that good connection he said "look my friend its not the end im sending but it is if you keep pretending yor some kind of song with out and ending" and the response made by its residents is still pending... o! the ouroboros sang a chorus and the words were whats in store for us but no one listens to the Riddlesnake blues! no one listens to a sssong sssung by a sssnake
