entourage
for Rain and Crystal


yellow '64 Mustang convertible
heads west on top the monitor

driving is the Sorcerer
scepter raised
looking out at the crowd

shotgun is the sitting Buddha
eyes on the road

in the back seat stands
the Divine Mother
in the form of Rabbit
wearing yellow dress and
white apron
holding comb and scissors
to maintain the world

vigilant Giraffe follows
with Bear riding on her back
they sing my song

   stardust follows you
   wherever you may go
   stardust follows you 
   wherever you may go

I come in for the chorus

   it's so simple who we are
   shining like the morning star
   shining like the morning star
