Treasure Island

Allan Gerard

Follow The Curves

Although they seemingly stood still inside my head
The singers suffered the same fate as the band

A brand new pain sprouted wings
Taking me to planes I'd never seen
I don't volunteer, I just go
I never ask, I just know

And just now it seems I've been asked
To Speak on things unseen

Wisdom is hidden in darkness
When lit by the flames of ones soul
Look how the fire rises
As the light bends upon the curve, now hold

The gate keepers waiting, watching from every angle
What I teach, you will learn, but follow the example

Slow your breathing to a point, exhale through your mind
The vibratory patterns dance within the prismatic sphere
You find fear lingering not far behind
Continue the dance and push past
Fear has no power here unless you empower it

Can you hear the band now?
They're playing your song
Though, your harmony, is yet to be sung

Angles will beat you to the drum of the death rattle.

    The death rattle is caused when a persons coughing and swallowing reflexes are impaired or absent. This happens sometimes when a person is close to death or when someone is in a very, very deep meditative state. Guardians or gatekeepers of the astral world move within the pattern of angles human spirits should move in the pattern of curves as to avoid the angles. (Report) Reply

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
