Forever Reoccurring
Gong : The Universe Also Collapses


There is only now you know
Proof, if proof be need be
It’s happening all at once
And it always will be

It’s coming round again
Annihilation
Put a fire to all you are
Your initiation

Is between the meaning 
of another meaning 
and behind the meaning more
And behind the meaning 
is another meaning 
and between the meaning more

Is the language blinding
From the light inside the verse?
Do you need reminding
Of the meaning of the words?
Now it’s going faster, 
always going faster, 
really going faster now

All the moments that make up a life
Forever at once reoccurring
On the one side a devil alive
On the other an angel is stirring
Every birth has a dying inside
Planets rotate off their axes

In the fiery explosion of light
The universe also collapses

Unborn watchers at large
All and everyone
Unilluminated spiral
Inside and out
Pulsing signals
Charge of the air
Cast no light at all
Never die and never changing
Outside and in

Spirits blink off and on
Disappear from sight
Neither dead nor living
Unborn watchers at large

All the moments that make up a life
Forever at once reoccurring
On the one side a devil alive
On the other an angel is stirring

Well this is the moment
And now is the time
You’ve forgotten to remember how
There is only now

If never I’m crazy
And ever you mind
While a million buzzing signals sound
White light all around
Light all borne around

Forever reoccurring
And ever we wind
Fast awaking through a timeless dream
None of this is real
All and you are me


	

If Never I’m And Ever You
Gong : The Universe Also Collapses


Star burn, 
growing inwards unstartled, 
pale departure of angels
Explorations and madness, 
destinations that they came
Blazing visions of burning, 
flammable always blinding
Apparitions of fire, 
luminescent and they were, 
they were golden.

Grounded, charred, all broken
Subsided, get so high on the vapours
Glowing embers, spectators
Burnt to cinders alive
They were, they were golden

They are, they are golden

If never I’m crazy and ever you mind


	

My Sawtooth Wake
Gong : The Universe Also Collapses


Faceless charge, 
am I astern, distraught?
Storms emerge, unanchored, 
seething, caught up
Drowners fate, transmissions, 
ends of men
Fare beneath Hecate pale entry

Tides and timings
Times and tide

Spirit bright from the stars
Rustling like dead leaves she falls down
Unseen by radar, 
wonderment all cast off alone
Lost, rudderless adrift, 
in the beginning of all things
Returning to all things

Rains, hail and heavy, 
whirlpool and snare
Windward they dragging, 
darkest ocean fair
No gales, no warning, 
my sawtooth wake
Gives me the shivers, mercy
Masthead a-breaking, bolt in her starts
She trembles, she shivers, wasted

What moves in the water?
And whips up the sea white?
What rings in the whistling
That splashes all zig-zagging down?

Wet vicious pitchpoling,
Leviathan rolling knockdown
Breathing the ocean in
And I’m breathing the ocean into myself

Wide awake these tropics
Host my sawtooth wake
Sink to climates under
Kinder seas to take

Spirit bright from the stars
Rustling like dead leaves she falls down
She falls down


	

The Elemental
Gong : The Universe Also Collapses


Flicking through the pages, 
I’ve forgotten every word
The lines are meaningless, 
the photographs are blurred
And when I close the book, 
the story opens again

Eden born, a golden dawn, 
revolving hallucination
That comes into us breathing, 
semi-conscious, half-awake
And never leaves us alone
All at large it’s plasma charged 
and washing onto my map
As I look into the meaning, 
half submerged the memory of
A hundred million buzzing signals, 
shaking flesh from my bones

And the elemental spirits 
take me for their own
And put to fire 
everything we’ve ever known
The dawn of history 
the golden age of man
The world is ending 
just the same as it began

Unaware but everywhere, 
don’t mention the open casket
When you’re looking for a reason, 
white light shines from silver words
All over you, over me
I’ve got the medicine 
and if you’ve got the time
Let’s take another ride 
through this crazy terrifying life
Another season in the sun and then

The elemental spirits 
take me for their own
And put to fire 
everything we’ve ever known
The dawn of history 
the golden age of man
The world is ending 
just the same as it began
Ending now

A hundred million buzzing signals
Shake all the flesh from your bones
Uncollision, all collapsing fast now
Unexpiring, all familiar
Falling apart on its own
Elemental spirits take me home

The elemental spirits 
take me for their own
And put to fire 
everything we’ve ever known
The dawn of history 
the golden age of man
The world is ending 
just the same as it began
The world is ending 
just the same as it began
Ending now
Ending now

Remember there is only now
