Given (1. the waterfall 2. the illuminating gas)

lyrics

I want to stop thinking of love, dreaming of love, defining love.
I want to feel the earth below me... ravish me.

Given: the waterfall, the illuminating gas.
The bachelors: suitors at my call.
I used to dream of love as a machine;
Myself as the motor, erotic energy.

I'm ready to experience this love, to look beyond this glass, leave concept for reality.
I want to feel the water immerse me... consuming me.
I want to leave behind this lauded virginity, to experience love, to be taken by love.
I want to feel the sunlight upon me... overpower me.

Given: the waterfall, the illuminating gas.
The cinematic blossoming: halo of the bride.
I used to diagram love as a machine;
Myself as the motor, erotic energy.

(repeat during atypical fade-out)
