--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the land of the flightless birds lives the water girl.

There dwells a friend of mine who no longer draws
breath

In the land of the flightless birds rests the pondered
experience.

It takes me all that I have not to forget
to breathe. In the land of memories is eternal darkness.

The universe expands, the lived experience heralds absolute
zero.

The only thing that draws it together and binds us
with trusty bonds is love.
