Porcelina of the Vast Oceans

(Alternate (early lyrics) title/lyrics for Porcelina of the Vast Oceans)

 

Alt. Lyrics

as far as you take me
that's where i believe
the realm of soft delusions
floating on the leaves
on a distant shoreline
she waves her arms to me
all the thought police
are closing in for sleep
the dilly dally
of my bright lit stay
the steam of my misfortunes
has given me the power to be afraid
and in my mind i'm everyone
and without a care in this whole world
without a care in this life
it's what you take that makes it right
porcelina-porcelina
in the slipstream
of thoughtless thoughts
the light of all that's good
the light of all that's true
to the fringes gladly
i walk unadorned
with gods and their creation
with filth and our disease
porcelina she waits for me there
with seashell hissing lullabyes
and whispers fathomed deep inside my own
hidden thoughts and alibis
my secret thoughts come alive
and without a care in this whole world
without a care in this life
it's what you take that makes it right

  Normal Lyrics

as far as you take me, that's where i believe
the realm of soft delusions, floating on the leaves
on a distant shoreline, she waves her arms to me
as all the thought police, are closing in for sleep
the dilly dally, of my bright lit stay
the steam of my misfortunes
has given me the power to be afraid
and in my mind i'm everyone
and in my mind
without a care in this whole world
without a care in this life
it's what you take that makes it right
porcelina of the oceans blue
in the slipstream, of thoughtless thoughts
the light of all that's good, the light of all that's true
to the fringes gladly, i walk unadorned
with gods and their creations
with filth and disease
porcelina, she waits for me there
with seashell hissing lullabyes
and whispers fathomed deep inside my own
hidden thoughts and alibis
my secret thoughts come alive
without a care in this whole world
without a care in this life
it's what you take that makes it right
and in my mind i'm everyone
in my mind i'm everyone of you
you make it right
it's all allright
you make it right
porcelina of the oceans blue
