Criminal Saints

Updated: 13 hours ago

•(((.∞.)))•


criminal saints

burden to civilization

born 

from poets wombs

mused warriors 

birthing sacred hearts

being both 

all evolving

unyielding starseed 

nature selected 


criminal and driven

looking too deep

almost mad

sometimes completely

denial of wings they bear 

appearing

as indigo companion 

shadows

not seen or accepted

silently screaming 

“i am not chosen”


criminal and contrary 

irreverent, playful,

romantic fools

at home 

on the precipice

laughing 

sometimes wailing

noble hearts resisting

their true calling

in trade for

earthbound cravings

masking memory

denying ancestral trauma

pain of feeling


criminal and knowing

their own divinity

intentionally 

breathing 

as if chanting

weeping 

uncontrollable rivers 

thunderbird sparking

water is life

truth is below thinking

love is before thought

before knowing


criminal sages

awaken… 

enlightened

seasonally gathering

synchronized 

sunset fielding

criminal saints

unbridled observers

dwelling from the edge

present and praying

collectively grateful

Lyrics


A modern-day warrior

Mean, mean stride

Today's Tom Sawyer

Mean, mean pride


Though his mind is not for rent

Don't put him down as arrogant

His reserve, a quiet defense

Riding out the day's events

The river


What you say about his company

Is what you say about society

Catch the mist, catch the myth

Catch the mystery, catch the drift


The world is, the world is

Love and life are deep

Maybe as his skies are wide

Today's Tom Sawyer, he gets high on you

And the space he invades, he gets by on you


No, his mind is not for rent

To any god or government

Always hopeful, yet discontent

He knows changes aren't permanent

But change is


And what you say about his company

Is what you say about society

Catch the witness, catch the wit

Catch the spirit, catch the spit


The world is, the world is

Love and life are deep

Maybe as his eyes are wide


Exit the warrior

Today's Tom Sawyer

He gets high on you

And the energy you trade

He gets right on to

The friction of the day
