beneath the southern cross lyrics – patti smith

beneath the southern cross

oh, to be not anyone
gone this maze of being skin
oh, to cry not any cry
so mournful that the dove just laughs the steadfast gasps

oh, to owe not anyone
nothing to be
not here but here
forsaking equatorial bliss

who walked through the callow mist
dressed in scr*ps
who walked the curve of the world
whose bone scr*ped, whose flesh unfurled

who grieves not, anyone gone to greet lame
the inspired sky amazed to stumble
where god’s get lost
beneath the southern cross
