Muzik of blood
Black reared
Pain rooted
Heart geared

All tensed up
In the bubble and the bounce
An the leap an the weight-drop

It is the beat of the heart
This pulsing of blood
That is a bubblin' bass
A bad bad beat
Pushin' against the wall
Whey bar black blood

An is a whole heappa
Passion a gather
Like a frightful form
Like a righteous harm
Giving off wild like is madness
