Body and Soul

Cripple. Gimp. Handicap.

Disabled

Cripple. Crippled.

Crippling emotions on my chest

break my back

bury my heart

sell my soul for a bottle of whiskey

Cripple Creek

up on Cripple Creek

gone fishing one more time

everything’s fine

F. I. N. E. fine

opened mind

heart of gold

$5.29 for regular unleaded

crippled by society

rye whiskey

if the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck…

crippled by our minds

polluted by society

blind to the truth

deaf to reality

unable to walk away from this paradigm

shift work

7-3,

3-11,

11-7

eight more days

nine more nights

drink, fuck, fight

you’re a real man now

drink, fuck, fight

you have the right to

remain enslaved by society

nine-to-five

pay taxes

obey

and you have the nerve to call her a cripple?

part of her body doesn’t work like it used to

the sky’s not falling

it’s still blue

but there’s chemical snake clouds now

burning up the atmosphere

I’ll have another beer

I’ll have another beer

I’ll have another shot

in the arm

vaccinate

castrate

indoctrinate,

you have the nerve to call her a cripple?

how dare you,

you’re the goddamn cripple

with your x-boxes and i-pads

and your I have a dream homes

with white picket fences

and a dog

a goat

a boat

and a refrigerator full of beer

I’ll have another beer

cripple

crippled

crippling how you do less with a fully functioning body

than she does with half

when’s the last time you rode a bike?

went for a hike?

moved away at the drop of a hat

to an island in the sun

you’ve got legs that work

but you’re afraid to run

your mind is running on auto pilot

program director hiding behind the curtain

you think there’s a great Oz

free your mind

heal your mind

grow your soul

you’re the one that’s crippled…

emotional cripple

spiritual cripple

the broken body is temporary

but the soul is eternal

the soul is whole

the mind is whole

the heart is whole

the body IS whole

the love is whole…

one love

one

one spirit

one

one universe

one universal body connected with the earth

mountains and oceans

sun and moon and stars

these bodily scars are nothing

nothing

bones and skin and blood

nothing

bury my body in the mud when I die

don’t cry

please don’t cry

no woman

no cry

you wanna get high?

*sigh*

you see

from sea to shining sea

the body is an ocean

seven billion drops

connecting humanity

it’s insanity to think

let’s have another drink

cripple

crippled

crippling god with your dogma

pushing guilt

and fear of a seventh circle

you’re scared of hell?

welcome to it!

but this is heaven…

IMAGINE!!!

imagine…

heal your mind and you’ll find

that these shells we walk around in

trade em’ in

upgrade

run only on high-test

organic

93 octane

$5.59 a gallon

you’re the cripple

heal your mind

heal your soul

let it grow

just let it go

because

so it goes…

a broken body doesn’t make you a cripple

a brainwashed mind

head buried in the sand…

Pakistan

Afghanistan

I don’t like politics

Kardashian

shut your mouth

do as they say

obey

obey

obey

up on Cripple Creek

one fish,

two fish

red, white and blue

collar girls and boys

lost at sea

on a disabled vessel

crippled

minds and spirits

bury my heart

tear my ACL…

she’s beautiful

inside and out

far more able than most able-bodied people

and willing to fight till she dies

no woman, no cry

no, you’re not the one who is crippled
