Yanatay 08:34
Yanatay Yanatayah On their way, fast up through the valley looking for our sons and our daughters Like the Arhuaco before We must open up those secret doors Through dimensional cover Past the owls at dawn Fossilized baleen on the windy ridge Keratin crystals born in a past pristine Before the edge of plunder Offerings above the churning sea Ceremony is something we need I find myself in the future I find myself in the past Either way, this situation can’t last Wide open like the sun Shining on mycorrhizal runs Look at the beauty you’ve become Consciousness leading you on Hitting on your own drum Singing stories saying This will pass We will last Forever He watched the pack Make off down the narrows Knowing they’d be back in twenty eight days He followed there tracks to see which way they preferred to go in October Over six ridges towards the dismembered coast By the village at the forks We sent the men out for more You saw my sister in her finery Wasn’t long before you came knocking on our door. Father gone mother shy I looked you in the eyes I could tell you weren’t like the other whites When the tide is out the table is set With the love of the moon Our needs are met Watching the pups play as he braids the nets Its not that its too sweet Its just that you haven’t seen it yet Stuck in America so easy to forget The relaxed thriving that was meant Creation is free Freely given Why destroy it for currency Wide open like the sun Shining on mycorrhizal runs Look at the beauty you’ve become Spirit leading you on Hitting on your own drum Singing stories saying This will pass We will last Forever

The elk grew soggy And the sea grew back And the night got wetter And the crows sent mad Sing it to the family about just what I saw Standing in front of me Waiting for the ferry to call In a fog not as salty as it used to be And looser It don’t bother me Rising up to meet you All the creatures to the east The presences you need Making beats Trading favors By the shoreline 10 fathoms deep Heard laughing Laying On the fallen trees Rising up to meet you The skin was piled next to the quartered body An old wool blanket and a nose sticking out It’ll be enough to feed all the mothers in the town. Children never taught how She will make it better for them now Hope and praise in the Skutled graveyard dappled in copper leaves Kids graves sunk and angling

Breakthrough, breakthrough I see your island now I see you What to do? What to do? Go and get it now It's ok Come close and then through Heya hey It seems so easy Mister I need a boat that I can mend Wanna travel, tool around the carribean Colombia up to Biscayne Bay Around the bend The Yucatan Breakthrough breakthrough I see your island now I see you
