I can’t decide what goes better with quinoa Hmm…Asparagus or brussels sprouts? Hmm…what is quinoa anyway? A seed, a grain, a plant? Some people say we are what we eat And then I’m thinking What do I want to become? It’s like constructing a house Putting decorations afterwards My body is my house, but I’m not always at home My body is my house, but I’m not always at home Walking round and round the vegetable isles Analyzing forms, benefits and even spiritual meanings I found myself becoming one of them My body is my house, but I’m not always at home My body is my house, but I’m not always at home My body is my house, but I’m not always at home My body is my house, but I’m not always at home I’m not always at home I’m not always at home I’m not always at home I’m not always at home

The skin I live in Separates me from the universe The skin I live in Separates me from the universe In every intercourse Flesh like a fountain of atoms Sparkle out from My fortified skin Skin soldiers bring them backkkkk It’s a safe place I’m in a safe place It’s a safe space Soldiers never let out inhabitants In case they cause the irruption The skin I live in Separates me from the universe The skin I live in Separates me from the universe

Destroy yourself to create Destroy yourself to create Go to the depths Leave your comfortable numbness Go to the depths Leave your comfortable numbness To be transformed From the inside, inside, inside, inside out, Inside, inside, inside, inside Inside, inside, inside, inside out When you’ve emerged into your space Shed your skin Like a snake sheds its skin Remove all your muscles and bones Until you are flesh free

Water fills the room I grab the wooden piece of a closet As a float My daddy gives me a chair But I can’t sit on it I can’t sit on it Newspaper glued to it And reads the future is obscure, nearly collapsed I think it’s bright I think it’s briiiiighhhhtttttt I think it’s bright I think it’s briiiigghhhtttttt Oooohhhh, Kami rainbows! I see rainbows I want to study it more I see rainbows I want to study it more
