Take a drag you devil cat
seek the rock of nevermore
improvise your sanity
and capture on kodachrome
the bastard face of danger.

Seek the rock you devil cat
locate the dancing spirits
imitate intelligence
and compose on present truth
this chemical religion.

Dance in drag you devil cat
scavenge for the haunting beast
humanize reality
and save from banality
your ascetic way of life.

Take a drag you devil cat
hunt the fiend and shake her hand
subsist with imprisoned breath
and dream without finite edge
for tomorrow is too far.
