Come meet me

in the secret garden

living green

and dancing yellow,

join the bees

and beg their pardon

where the hive

grows sweet and mellow.

.

Free of fear

and saved from doom

let us dance

in yonder meadow

where the wild ones

stand and bloom –

spare the truth

and spoil the credo.

.

Oh my love,

let’s long abide –

dance the tango

free from care.

Meet me

on the other side –

unloose your heartstrings,

take the dare.

Deep in the folds

of the flannel of night

we hear the drums call –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

Our eyes open wide

as we chew through the shackles

and dance ourselves free –

.

      ba ba boom.

.

Up the spiral we climb,

our candles held high

to shatter the gloom –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

At the top we leap clear

of gravity’s hold

on the weight of our words –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

We land on the sun

where we tear off our masks

and meet our true Selves –

.

      Ba Ba Boom, Ba Ba Boom!

We can’t be held down,

we’re a ball bouncing back,

an unsinkable raft,

a bowl that won’t crack.

We can never be slain,

our core’s made of steel,

wherever we’re punctured

we readily heal.

Trample on us

and we’ll spring back to life,

we cut to the truth

like an ever-sharp knife.

We’re a magical candle

that never stops burning,

a wise inner child

who never stops learning.

Knock on our window’s

unbreakable glass,

mow us down, we’ll grow back

like invincible grass.

Light as a bubble

we can’t be detained,

we’ll rise towards the light

and ever remain.
