9. Let It Breathe°

Sail on upon the seas

Let none deceive

The weight that calls to me

In part, in peace

Can I learn to crave all mistakes

Turn back and say:

 

Here I hold my old reflection love

But it ain't me

Just a thought that was caught

in absentia

and sentenced

to leave

For when you return here to me

Resolve to leave philosophy

To the ones who retreat

Somehow caught in-between the stars and the sheets

Still just trying to read these dreams

Somehow old, Somehow new

With someone I never knew

 

Here I hold my old reflection love

But it aint me

Just a thought that was caught

in absentia

and sentenced

to leave

For when you return here to me

Laid my flaws beneath you

Waited for the storm

Gave my word to leave you

Better than before

 

 

 

When you return here to me

When you return here to me

When you return here to me

When you return here to me

When you return here to me

Current-borne, wave-flung, tugged hugely by the whole might of ocean, the jellyfish drifts in the tidal abyss.  The light shines through it, and the dark enters it. Borne, flung, tugged from anywhere to anywhere, for in the deep sea there is no compass but nearer and farther, higher and lower, the jellyfish hangs and sways; pulses move slight and quick within it, as the vast diurnal pulses beat in the moon driven sea. An insubstantial creature, it has for its defence the violence and power of the whole ocean, to which it has entrusted its being, its going, and its will.

You want to see the fiction

You want to walk the sands

You want to know the ending

Because you don't Understand

Little love there was never time to show you

What it was that we were running from

Brittle Bones I was seeking omens

But as it was I just came back here

Opening text taken from "The Lathe of Heaven" by Ursula K. Le Guin

I want what you have

Though it may hold me back

To share the silence

with a whiskey and a photograph

 

Half of us is spent

Half is left to share

There's resolution in the air

In the fading of a breaking heart

 

Happiness hard to fight

Old aesthetic

Sold to sacrifice

All I said is

Happiness is hard to fight

 

So much for silence

So much for lovers last

The road was diamonds

With a whisper of let it pass

 

Half of us is spent

Half is left to share

There's resolution in the air

In the fading of a breaking heart

 

Old aesthetic

Sold to sacrifice

All I said is

Happiness is hard to fight

Old ascetic

Sold to sacrifice

All I said is

Happiness is half the fight

There is no end

There is no start

Can we pretend a while

That everything won't fall apart

 

You were a master

But a passenger on page

Come out, come out now

Everything has changed

Do not look past her

To the light that fades

Here is the rapture

Here is the sun I saved

 

Watching her just breaks my heart

How you gonna hold the hand that hurts

Aren't you gonna fold the fires first

Let me give you something strong to see you through

The love, the goal, the cage, the crew

 

Hear it your

Bones

Just a note of it

Even when they're

So

Sanctimonious

See it in the

Goal

Not the loneliness

This is not a curse

But you gotta leave it first

​​

Separate the love from the war

Care a little less, lose a little more

Try to start a fire, try to slip away

Slamming on the keys pressing Alt-J: "Na na na na"

 

Hear it your

Bones

Just a note of it

Even when they're

So

Sanctimonious

See it in the

Goal

Not the loneliness

This is not a curse

But you gotta leave it first

Brittle Bones I

Love you so

I could not call

I did not know

 

Here we fought

A futile war

Sometimes less

Sometimes more

 

But we're preserved in

Too much wine

Won't you rest

Clementine

 

Show me you're ready to fall forward in time

Show me there's something else to find

Show me you're hurting, show me the line

You'll be the weather, I'll be the sky

Seven thoughts

In a line

Reach to fault

The seven signs

 

Where you were

Where you are

When it's all

Another start

 

Come on rest

Come on rise

Come on let

The seasons die

 

Come on there's

Too much time

Too much left

To fall behind

 

Show me you're ready to fall forward in time

Show me there's something else to find

Show me you're hurting, show me the line

You'll be the weather, I'll be...

Je veux vivre

Je veux donner

J'ai été mineur pour un cœur d'or

Ce sont ces expressions

Je ne donne jamais

Qui me garde à la recherche d'un cœur d'or

 

Help me rest

I am weary

Though the battle is won

Some great test

Less a theory

Is this all I have done?

 

Throw your stones

They are only pebbles

Sun is worn

On the face of rebels

J'étais à Hollywood

J'étais à Redwood

J'ai traversé l'océan pour un coeur d'or

J' étais dans mon esprit

C'est une ligne si fine

 

Cela me pousse à chercher un cœur d'or

Et je vieillis

Et je vieillis

 

I read you those poems not for nothing

Made of splinters and sun

With the camera closed and you bluffing

Time is nothing to us

 

Stockholm Syndrome and some mild abetting

Once a home, now you're only letting

Her down

And I tried to fix us like a toy or a token

But what if some things are more beautiful broken

And we drank till our scars were all fierce and open

But what if some things are more beautiful broken

We're all looking for answers, solutions to be spoken

But what if some things are more beautiful broken

 

What if some things are more.

 

Je veux vivre

Je veux donner

J'ai été mineur pour un cœur d'or

Ce sont ces expressions

Je ne donne jamais

Qui me garde à la recherche d'un cœur d'or

Tu me continues à chercher

Et je vieillis

Et je vieillis

Narrated text from "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young

Translated to French and read by Laura Bret

If only all

If only all that we had

If only all that we had chosen

If only all that we had chosen not to

If only all that we had

chosen not to seek

If only all that we had

chosen not to seek could

Stay between at least the brave

 

If only all that we had

Chosen not to seek could

Stay between, at least

The brave

and all their lonely graves

You love the light

But your bitter enough

Across the lost reply

I call your bluff

 

At least I will release you

into every setting sun

At peace I will repeat:

"This was always to come"

 

All I lean to is

a bottle high

It's never enough

Lust arrives

In the Sefirot's cup

If life is love denied

Will it hold you up

At least I will release it

Into each and every one

In pieces I will leave you

The fictions of us

 

Alone I hear the

Settled sigh

You've suffered enough

Time

Set a course for you

Set a course from crown towards the ground beneath your youth

 

What grows from now is just the sound with which you breathe

Of our thoughts

Of our faults

Of our needs

 

Let it breathe

Let it breathe

Let it breathe

 

 

 

not natural or ethereal,

not composed of elements at all.

I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or in the next,

did not descend from Adam and Eve

or any origin story.

My place is placeless,

a trace of the traceless.

Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,

have seen the two worlds as one

and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that

breath breathing human being.

Time

To let it fall to you

Let it fall and steal the old desire from the new

 

When it’s done you’ll feel the folding fire floating free

Of our thoughts

Of our faults

Of our needs

 

Let it breathe

Let it breathe

Let it breathe

 

 

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim,

not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen.

Not any religion

or cultural system.

I am not from the East or the West,

not out of the ocean or up from the ground,

Contains the poem "Only Breath" by Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī Read and Recorded by Neal Sehgal
