Passageway

Poem By Aram Stefanian

You're looking for a passageway between the real world
and the land of the spectres
In your past life you served as a capable guide for wayward souls
For making fatal mistakes you stirred up rage of the Watchers
After you were dismissed, with them you stayed at opposite poles

Unwittingly, you unraved the sacred mystery of creation
Yet you were banned from telling the mortals about it
To relieve a burden, you had to offer yourself as an immolation
Together with the wicked demons, you were thrown down
the yawning pit

They tried to both frighten, and spellbind you, but that was fruitless
Fervently wishing to extort the esoteric axiom from you
They sealed the only passageway shut, but you remained speechless
You knew with your unfinished mission in your next life you
would continue

Angels And Demons (To Kurt Cobain) From Book: Angeles Rebeldes Y Demonios Extranjeros

I wonder what compelled you to take the Dutch act?
An O.D. on number three, thirteen or eight?
A suicidal soul gets no access to heaven, yet it's intact.
How come you really blew it by the kiss of death?

Joyride 2

As she wrapped her car around a tree
A weird thought ran through her mind:
'If I'm feeling no pain, then my soul is free
I'll have to part with the daily grind''

Teen Spirit (For Kurt Cobain)

A bleeding hole
A breeding horse
A junkie shot
A guitar chord

An Encyclopedia Of Fear (To Ron Oliver)

There's primal fear like a fetus blinded by daylight
There's lingering fear like a zit growing on your nose
There's groundless fear like a dark day covered by a clear night
There's inarticulate fear like a little fish wolfed down by a shark

With The Lights Out (To Kurt Cobain)

Out of space, out of sight, out of end,
Spaced out, sightless, endless, nameless.
Queen of lies with a pack of hearts, aimless.
Conservative communists are on the mend.

Walking On Clouds

I woke up on a weird planet where
Everything was upside down
I was walking on clouds, and the sky
Was replaced by a gunmetal sea
