I want to go to the stars I want to go to the stars I want to go for the morning star
She woke from a start from a dream of stars Let's talk about metaphysics she sighed in her bvd's She didn't need comfort just some verbal intercourse A dance around the intelligence tree
Where was the light before it came here? Who held the power to begin the spin? What is in store? what am I here for? Is it love? is it war? is there more?
There she stands at my mind again The age of poetry had begun
Wasn't that a time for love? Wasn't that a time for imagination? Wasn't that a time for the light? Go out and stuff the universe into your eyes
Out together on the streets At the barricades or in the sheets What a scintillating bitch with her eyes on the light "let's go to hell together" in her eyes
Why do we remember the past and not the future? What's inside a black hole? what is the nature of the universe? How does it work? which way is west in space? Is there sex in heaven? is it the best?
Connect me with my intellect, she lied You can't hide the sexual drive
Friction makes sparks, sparks make fire Fire makes heat and the heat will endure 'til the Animal comes with a ferocity not unlike You and me in the throes of poetry
A lover's eye can stare an eagle blind A lover's ear can hear the lowest sound A lover's lip taste like the dream I know you like it on top don't stop
Wasn't that a time for the light? Wasn't that a time for bright ideas? Wasn't that a time for love and danger? Go out and stuff the universe into your eyes
The only answer that I have found Above the sky or below the ground Is that there are no answers There never were any answers There will never be any answers And as Gertrude Stein said, "that's the answer"
I'm not afraid of the future I'm not afraid of ideas I'm not afraid to shake the foundation Of the wonder years
These are visions of tomorrow These are visions of the strength of ideas Like matter and energy, ideas shape the sky Of the future years
In my world, there are no hungry children In my world, love is true In my world, teachers get paid more than baseball players In my world, there is you, but In the real world, people get hungry In the real world, people need love In the real world, people need food and light and ideas and hope and love and a soothing human touch
Just like they're Standing in the presence of god Standing in the halls of imagination Every boy a lion, every girl a tiger It just takes a moment to step through the fire
Adventure beckons from above The age of poetry begins again with love
Isn't this a time for the light? Isn't this a time for imagination? Isn't this a time for great new ideas? Go out and stuff the universe into your eyes
Isn't this a time for love? Isn't this a time to shake the foundations? I know you like it on top, don't stop
