Blues for Kali

They call Her the Dark Mother
And the Mountain’s Daughter
She’ll sever your head
And deliver up another
Matters may not get better
But they’ll be different all the same
For that chatter don’t matter
And the matter won’t really mind
When you go to leave all the Maya behind

Each day is a tango with death
Dancing true blue tempos
Among shadows and echoes
Simple as holding a breath
And then letting it go
Jai Ma Kali Namo

She’s the mistress of mystery
Far as any Third Eye can see
Her method is madness
And madness is mandatory
In order to shake off reality
Mortal plane’s a crazy game
Just playing at being you and me
Takes grace to face a Kali makeover
But you’ll get over whoever you were

Each day is a tango with death
Dancing true blue tempos
Among shadows and echoes
Simple as holding a breath
And then letting it go
Jai Ma Kali Namo

Recycling all forms of energy
The mighty queen of Kundalini
Tantamount to Tantra
The Universe’s Yoni
We’re transitory stories
Changing faces places and names
Kali Durga Uma Parvati
That which clings will surely be torn
Nothing to mourn, we’re all Being reborn

Each day is a tango with death
Dancing true blue tempos
Among shadows and echoes
Simple as holding a breath
And then letting it go
Jai Ma Kali Namo
