broken soul
(schiz:  broken
phrenos:  soul)
from ON MY WAY TO WHERE
by Dory Previn
if i could take you love 
on a voyage 
from outer to inner 
from a sort of life 
to a kind of death 
beyond heartbeat 
beyond breath 
beyond back 
if i could take you there 
(i have been you know) 
would you come with me? 
have you courage to go? 
if i could lead you love 
on a voyage 
from here now 
to no now 
from the selfish time 
to the timeless self 
behind demons 
behind beginnings 
behind light 
if i could take you there 
oh the things you'd see 
you may lose your way 
of course 
there is no guarantee 

you will become entangled 
in the simultaneous vision 
of sea floors 
and far stars 
one eye pointed up and out 
the other pointed down and in 
and your  
self 
groping stunned and unbalanced 
between the two 
you will break our soul 
be sure 
broken soul 
broken defenses 
lose your mind 
come to your senses 

if i could take you love 
then return you 
from inner to inner/outer 
from the eternal womb 
through a second birth 
into then now 
with all you in you 
split into one 
if i could take you there 
if you would explore 
if i could tell you love 

there is more.
